An Unsuitable HeirSet in London in 1873

“What does he do?”

Pen paused. “He didn’t say, actually. We mostly talked about, well, me.”

“No wonder you think he’s charming.”

Pen blinked. “You’re an anarchist about the laws of nature?”

“I’m not an anarchist at all, same as I’m not an atheist,” Mark said. “I can’t be bothered. My mate’s an atheist and he’s always thinking about God and religion and whatnot. I just don’t care.”

Desmond’s been trying to throw me out of my house, you see. I keep lodgings, and the lodging house belongs to Moreton, and if he took it away that would be my home and my livelihood gone. Everything I’ve worked for, my future. I’d have to start all over again with nothing. It wouldn’t be pleasant.”

“Why would he do that?”

“Because he doesn’t want me to exist,” Clem said simply.

He’d hated very few people in his life, and when he did it was for good reason. He couldn’t comprehend what it must be like to have such deep wells of loathing in your soul, such endless reserves of malice to give away and spread around.
