    Summary

    The first time d'Artagnan met Athos, he pulled a gun on him, and the ensuing fight ended with d'Artagnan pressed up against the wall of the alley, Athos holding d'Artagnan's own gun under his chin. Athos met his furious gaze with the bluest eyes d'Artagnan had ever seen, obviously angry but still in control; they were jammed chest to chest, and d'Artagnan's heart was pounding with adrenaline but Athos wasn't even breathing hard. That's enough, he'd said.

    Summary

    “Sit down,” she insists, “and someone, explain. Now.”

    She half-expects d’Artagnan to argue back; but instead he turns to face her and says through gritted teeth, “They mean to bed you.”

    The idea is so ridiculous, she almost laughs.

    But nobody else is laughing.

    “So you mean to do to me what you did to my husband.”

    Summary

    Their tour stops in a village west of Thebes called Chaeronea, the birthplace of Plutarch, the site of many great battles. Here at this spot, the guide tells them, leading them to a monument topped with a proud lion, the Thebans and Athenians fell to Philip of Macedonia. Charles tries to draw the monument, tries to listen to the guide, but he is hot and dizzy in the summer sun. He reaches for his father’s arm, misses and stumbles; he falls to his knees and vomits on the bright green grass before everything goes black.

    Summary

    "It's about..." He sighs, and I can hear the stress again in his voice. He has my sympathy now, which only adds weight to - whatever I still feel for him. Loyalty, at the very least. "Look, I don't want to go into it over the phone, okay? This is family stuff, and you should be here for it."
