La Bas et ailleurs. Jacques St.Cere 1890

Millicent huffed out her breath, blowing away the dangling lock of hair. Business was good. Her hands and arms were full with the dozen tankards of beer ordered by the newly returned patrolmen. “Here ye are lads.” She announced cheerfully, bustling up to their table. “All nice and cold. I’ll be right back with your food.”

“Thank you, Miss…?” The young lieutenant in charge trailed off inquiringly.

“Mistress Millicent sir, goodwife to the innkeeper here at the Cock’s Crow.”

He took a swallow from his tankard and wiped the foam from his face. “Good beer, very good.” He announced, sliding a silver coin across the wooden table.

“Thank ye sir. My husband brews it himself.” She turned to leave and squeaked as he pinched her bottom. She turned her head to glare at him. “Sir, I’m not that kind of woman!” Really! She thought indignantly. Just because her country had lost the war, there was no excuse for bad manners!
