Raina-J. Confrey (jesfrey) | 6450 comments Bertrand urged his steel grey hunter over a hedge. Their graceful landing would have made for a handsome view had Bertrand's lips and jaw not been set in a hard line.

Vivvie, disowned?

He reined Theseus in to a high-spirited trot and turned him around, his blue eyes searching the crest of the hill for his brother.

Cursing, he had kicked his horse, Bob, into a gallop. Ben had named his giant stallion of a horse Bob because not only had it been good for a laugh, but because it had annoyed his father.

He was still reeling from Jessamine's news. Vivian had been disowned because she had spoken to an ex beau. He still couldn't believe it.

He heard his brother behind him and slowed Bob to a light canter.

Raina-J. Confrey (jesfrey) | 6450 comments As Theseus and Bob whickered and snorted at each other, Bertrand looked at Ben's steely visage and knew they were thinking the same thing.

"I had no idea it was this bad at home," the older twin said, fiddling with his reins. "I'd have come sooner if I'd known..."

"He disowned her for speaking again with Stephen Dedalus, and for what else?" Bertrand wondered out loud. "What else has she done that would give cause for disowning her? She's not a horrible girl. Rebellious and headstrong, yes, but..."

"What will happen to her, Bert? No family, no money, no value as a wife?" he shook his head. "Disowning her has destroyed her future," he finished.

Raina-J. Confrey (jesfrey) | 6450 comments Bertrand hated talking of his beloved little sister as though she were a commodity, and he knew that Ben did too. But it was a valid point. As the youngest, and as a girl, Vivian had already started life with the shortest straw possible.

Their darling Vivvie was utterly ruined. And for what? For being who she was?

"We should go over there," he said, referring to Northby's mansion. "See if she'll talk to us. Maybe we can do something."

Raina-J. Confrey (jesfrey) | 6450 comments Bertrand clucked his tongue against the roof of his mouth to encourage Theseus into a walk. "Shall we go later on tonight? Or even now?"

Raina-J. Confrey (jesfrey) | 6450 comments "Amelia won't go. The boys' tutors are arriving tomorrow," Bertrand sighed. "I know," he said, holding up a hand to silence Ben. "I want them with us, too, but I don't want to antagonize Father any further. But I will go with you. I cannot abide by this."
