    Summary

    Momentarily, he might regret playing at this. But he’d always found it invigorating to have the cardinal’s considerable energies leveled at him, even if it pushed his own temper. It felt the same as being in a good fight, a fair fight. That was, perhaps, odd: few might call Richelieu ‘fair.’ More would say ‘ruthless.’

    Summary

    “Well I have worn Papa’s hat more times than you ever shall,” declares little Alexandre, “as he is my Papa, and so there.”

    “Hush, Alexandre,” says Marie Cessette, “Louis can wear Uncle d’Artagnan’s hat if he likes. He’s the king.”

    “I don’t much like being king, though,” Louis tells Alexandre seriously. “So I shall forsake hats and things and be a musketeer today instead.”

    “And I shall be Saint Joan!” says Marie Cessette excitedly.

    “But who shall be the king?” asks Raoul, sensible boy that he is.

    “Well,” says Louis. “Obviously, you shall, Raoul.”

    “Oh,” says Raoul. “Well, that’s all good then.”
