Things I said But Wished I Had Not
I wish I had not said, ‘Yes’ to Athos; but it was hardly either of our faults.
There is very little else I ever regret having actually said. I tend to be far too deliberate in that area.
On the other hand, however…..
Things I Did Not Say But Wished I Had
To King Louis XIII and his Court: “No. In spite of what you all think, Athos and I are not getting married. I am in love with another.”
To Cardinal Richelieu: “Stop staring down my bodice, Your Grace. If my husband knew, you would be dead.”
I wish I had asked Sebastien to marry me, rather than waiting for him to do so. Perhaps telling him that I was in love with him would have sufficed.
“You are my Anam Cara – but I am appalled at how you treat your son at times, Hsu. Do you not remember what you went through to get him back?”
To Morgienne: “It is my sole ambition to kill and supplant you on the throne, Madame.”
To Azazeal: “Do not pretend with me, you pretentious ass. I have always known what you are about.”
To Napoleon: “Do you think for one moment that I am impressed with you, ‘Little Man’? Hardly.”
To the Inquisitors: “Why yes, you could very well say that I am a Wytch. Now what are you going to do about it? And do you really want to go there?”
