Thank you, though I don’t deserve it: I try to answer all my asks but I have about 6,000 unanswered ones (which is why I turned off asks, I think you have to be following someone’s blog to send fanmail which makes it more manageable) — but anyways, onwards! Will’s not French, though his French (and Greek, and Latin, which is “et tu, Brute” ;) are fine. He’s Welsh, so he does speak Welsh in Clockwork Princess.
Will leaned close, almost hissing into her ear. “Fyddai’n wneud unrhyw dda yn ddweud wrthych i fynd adref?”
“Jem told me what Ragnor Fell said about my father,” Will said. “That for my father, there was only ever one woman he loved, and it was her for him, or nothing. You are that for me. I love you, and I will only ever love you until I die —”
What if he’s not saying this to Tessa, but someone else because he needs to?
Cause if it isn’t Tessa, we all know he’d be lying.
I’m not saying he can’t love anyone else, I’m just saying that if he fell in love with someone else she wouldn’t be the only woman he’d ever loved.
I DID IT BECAUSE I LOVE YOU
“I imagined you wanted an apology! You saved my life at the tea warehouse, and I am grateful, Will. I thought you wanted me to tell you that—”
Will looked as if she had slapped him. “I didn’t save your life so you’d be grateful!”
“Then, what?” Her voice rose. “You did it because it’s your mandate? Because the Law says—”
“I did it because I love you!” he half-shouted, and then, as if registering the shocked look on her face, he said in a more subdued voice, “I love you, Tessa, and I have loved you, almost since the moment I met you.”
