“My grandmother taught me,” Émilie replied. “Only works on green wood.”

“You’re getting better at extracting that foot from your mouth…”

“A wise blue-eyed angel showed me the way.”

A wise blue-eyed and blonde-haired angel. Standing in a simple bedroom. Clothes and scene appropriate to the 16th Century France.
