    Summary

    Our lips met awkwardly, not quite aligned, but she caught my jaw with her hand and repositioned it. Her kisses were smooth and practiced, some deep and some shallower, like the ebb and flow of the tide, and I felt myself being swept away. I had never been kissed so incessantly before, and I feared I might drown.

    Summary

    They kissed, and Mrs Danvers could feel Rebecca smiling beneath her mouth. When they broke apart, Rebecca was still beaming.

    “You’re so happy,” said Mrs Danvers. “What’s got into you?”

    “I’m always happy.”

    “Not like this.” Rebecca’s happiness was usually triggered by unkindness towards others, but now she seemed purely joyful.

    “Don’t worry,” Rebecca said. “It will pass.”

    Summary

    “then why,” the voice says, and there’s humor in the pitch, “are you skulking around like it’s a minefield?”

    “because i have at least an 80% affirmation that i can’t trust you.”

    an actual laugh now. “i was about to say the same thing.”

    [could i have pulled the trigger if i'd been told?]

    Summary

    For as long as I can remember, Rebecca had always wanted a chaise longue. I don’t know where the obsession came from, perhaps she had seen a photograph of a beautiful actress lying on one, smouldering, and wished to do the same. It was the sort of thing she would have done.

    Summary

    She saw the figure of a tall woman appear out of nowhere. She had sharp cheekbones and dark hair with gray strands gathered in an updo. Red lips on a pale face were curved in a soft sneer.

    Summary

    She never looked twice at the monstrous part of Rebecca. She herself was a liar, with information so dangerous that she had taken to forgetting the name she was born with to protect it. They were both monstrous, the two of them, proper Dorian Grays, with their secrets hidden behind false beauty, locked in attics, whispered to lovers after drunken nights, only spilled when it was convenient.

    For what was the point of being young and beautiful if not sex and the annihilation of one's enemies?

    “I am glad it cannot happen twice, the fever of first love. For it is a fever, and a burden, too, whatever the poets may say.”

    Or

    The second Mrs. de Winter doesn’t know what to make of some of her intimate encounters. They certainly don’t fall under the heading of love, but they’re no less feverish or burdensome.

    Summary

    The West Wing has been effectively quarantined, and not even Beatrice and Giles are allowed to visit. Mrs. Danvers, resident jack-of-all-trades, has been expressly told to stay away. Save for Mrs. Danvers, who is running an errand, and Frith, who has confined himself to the morning room to settle the affairs of the estate, all the staff have been given lodging elsewhere in Kerrith, only to return once the doctor allows them to.

    Whatever Maxim deWinter has contracted is killing him. It’s killing him, and all of them know it.

    Summary

    Without warning, she bit into me. She’d done it before like that, probably a dozen times or so since she’d changed, but I still tensed for a moment, reflexively. Then she took a long pull, and I relaxed into the warmth of the sensation. It did feel wonderful – and more.
    She released, lapping at the blood that welled up lazily.
    “Does it really feel better than drugs? Better than sex?”

    Mrs. Danvers is more than happy to offer her service and her blood to the newly-turned Rebecca de Winter. In fact, she enjoys it more than she's willing to admit - until the night Rebecca demands to know just how good it really is.
