West indicated that Ria should precede him to the side-board. Once there, he uncovered the dishes and invited her to take her fill. Tempering his amusement, he watched her crowd her plate with slices of bacon, tomato, and toast with jam. When they were seated at the table, Ria chose a soft-cooked egg, cracked it expertly with the bowl of her spoon, then began to peel back the shell. It was at this point that she looked up and realized West had yet to help himself to anything but his coffee. Ria slowly lowered her spoon.

" West wished he had not stood up because it was just that sort of logic that set him reeling. She looked as if she meant to explain herself, and he held up a hand, palm out, to forestall her. "It will be a kindness if you do not repeat yourself. " Ria felt a tendril of hair flutter against her cheek. The distraction as his eyes fell on it was not welcome. She tucked it behind her ear quickly.
He asked. "In danger? Threatened? " She was too startled to deny any or all of those things. "No," he said, answering for her. " For once Ria was glad that her thoughts were so clearly expressed on her face. "It is too late to impose your presence on any of the suitable females of my acquaintance, therefore I will escort you to suitable lodgings not far from here. " West paused long enough to allow Ria to put forth an argument. He hoped it was good sense rattier than exhaustion that kept her from doing so.
