Ms. Heyer for Your Delectation and Delight


from Venetia
Georgette Heyer

[Damarel speaking] "Because you don't understand, my darling. If the gods would annihilate but space and time---but they won't, Venetia, they won't."

"Pope," she said calmly. "And make two lovers happy. Aubrey's favourite amongst English poets, but not mine. I see no reason why two lovers should not be happy without any meddling with space and time."

And in this, Venetia, as is so common in such book, is coolly correct. If it takes the annihilation of space and time to make things right, then we should take that as a subtle hint that perhaps they were not meant to be this way.
