It played out his emotions. For the first time in my life. The idea that she marries a vile old man who was lying in bed with her, to touch her and will drool on her silky skin clean ... the thought was enough that he was on the verge of madness. He closed his eyes, knowing the feeling that tormented him. It was jealousy. Just like his mother and father. A curse! Life was much simpler before the ton met Maddy Woodford - calmer and more orderly. He knew exactly who he was and what he wants. Now he has had plenty of conflicting emotions that tore it apart like wild beasts.
