#RainbowSnippets: At Her Service

Welcome to Rainbow Snippets!

I wanted to wrap my grateful fingers around that ankle, to kiss it. 

“Ariella is right,” the Lady Ariella said. Yes, we had the same name once upon a time. “How can you say this is not her home? Her father lives here. She grew up here.”
