Lady Farelly looked shocked. " she cried. " Nicola, a bit miffed at this, pointed at the people on the train as they went by. "But look, Lady Farelly. There are children there. " Lady Farelly gave a delicate snort. "Safe," she said. " While this was undoubtedly true, Nicola could not help but feel disappointed. The Catch Me Who Can looked such fun! She longed to ride it. Feeling someone's gaze upon her, Nicola tore her own from the little locomotive, and saw the God looking down at her. " he asked, looking faintly amused.
You needn't worry about the expense; I was able to use my monthly stipend. I am staying with the Bartholomews—I told you about them in my last letter—and they won't let me spend a penny on myself! Lord Farelly insists on paying for everything. He is such a kind man. He is very interested in locomotives and the railway. He says that someday, all of England will be connected by rail, and that one might start out in the morning in Brighton, and at the end of the day find oneself in Edinburgh! I found that a bit hard to believe, as I'm certain you do, too, but that is what he says.

And at the sight of Lord Sebastian's beautiful blue eyes, Nicola forgot all such disloyal thoughts. It wasn't for nothing she'd christened him the God, after all.
