A duel, and a family visit.

Every Sunday after mass, I go to visit my beloved parents.

Today however…


Mademoiselle? You would call me out on a paltry gambling debt?


Alors mademoiselle, We both are wounded and your sword is broken. Honour is satisfied.

I shall consider my debt discharged.


Bonjour papa, bonjour maman.


I bring you greetings from my sister. Alas, she is ill with the flux. She may not live.


I shall pray for her, and for you.
