    Joan nodded in acknowledgement before tapping her nose to let him know that what she had seen here today would remain a secret. "And do you charm all of the ladies." She asked him whilst turning her head slightly as to catch the reaction in his eyes. It would be wrong to judge a person on first appearance. yet Joan didn't really know what to make of him was he confident or arrogant that he would be successful in charming his way to get women to buy something.

"A defect of my gender, madam," he replied, laughing with a shrug, "If it offends you I beg your pardon...and that of your husband's."

He wasn't entirely assured she would not tell tales of what was on sale at the market, he assumed it in the nature of most women to gossip. Yet, so long as she did not speak too loudly of it he would be satisfied. Indeed, he did strain to hear her above the market chatter and so took a step closer to hear her clearer. Her accent, though different from his and offensively English, was gentle and deep. He glanced to the pearls before her.

"I favour the grey, the look like they come from the shadows of the sea...the others too bright, too common - though they may please a few."

    "Why do you think that I am a wedded woman." Joan took no offence at this strange mans word; although she looked directly at him trying to see if perhaps she had noticed him before. She was married in name only a time that she so wanted to erase from her memories to let that period of her life blur into the years untraceable to her mind. "I can imagine it must be a true moment of beauty when you crack open a shell or oyster only to discover the magnificent beauty of these pearls."

Well are you not?” Gabriel replied with a smile. Indeed, as she looked up to him he noticed the directness of her gaze and was sure she must be married - no maid would look at a man so boldly and she was too demure to be a harlot.
I’m sure it would be a sight to behold...but I prefer the chink of silver when someone buy the pearls,” he added jokingly.

    "Yes; I am married; but I haven't seen or spoken to my husband in over a year wouldn't call that a marriage would you." Joan grew irritated she did not want to be defined by a man she had her own head, her own way of thinking no man husband or not would ever change that. Such a bold statement from a stranger to ask about her own private life in the middle of the street, perhaps he failed to see just how uncomfortable it made Joan feel speaking about such things. "Alas; I would love to buy things from your stall of foreign treasure; but I can't; I am a simple woman not filled with earthly riches like a spoilt princess. Maybe one day I might see you at one of the kings' palaces."

Gabriel looked at her more directly. Perhaps it was a sore subject for her, husbands often were for women: either the want of them or their absence...or misbehaviours. He had heard of the troubles between husbands and wives through his friends, and while he would not presume to understand he could not help but sympathise with this woman…really a girl. She seemed young, certainly younger than Gabriel, and she was not without charms. Indeed, as he looked at her he believed her to be quite beautiful.

"Whomever your husband is...perhaps he might buy you such a gift - by way of an apology when he returns to you," he offered as tenderly as his gruff voice was able, "A lucky man often takes for granted the gifts he has. I'm sure he must miss you...

    Joan managed to raise a half smile standing in front of her was a man whom she did not know yet he seemed so certain that Anthony would one day return to her. "You seem so certain of yourself; sir that you leave me lost for words" And it was true Joan found herself lost in her thoughts rather than participating in conversation with this man was he like this with everyone or just her.

Gabriel shrugged - he didn't exactly believe he was certain of himself. Indeed, very often, he doubted himself or his capabilities. Yet, he was a soldier and a man trying to carve a place for himself in the world, beyond the gentry and nobility who seemed to have a great deal of money without much work. He did not have that luxury. To be unsure of himself would be to anticipate his own downfall.

"You do not strike me as one unsure of herself and I do believe I judge characters well," he offered slightly mischievously and then quickly added, realising he had not yet discovered her name, "I am sorry, I don't believe I asked your name?"

    Joan couldn't help but to silently laugh it was a rather odd conversation they were both having she found the more strange it became the more she craved to talk with this man. She held no guilt at for enjoying his company thus far who wouldn't with that charming Gaelic tone he had. "My name is Joan and what is yours" Perhaps if she was not married; then Joan would've dallied in some sort of flirtation with this man he was definitely different from the rest of them.

Gabriel…Latimer,” he replied with a slight nod to his head. He didn’t think she was especially talkative although nor was she quiet. There was something in the terseness of her speech. She spoke to him as if she didn’t need to, as if she did not care about him at all and yet the fact she spoke to him in such a delicate tone of voice made her seem gentle and kind.
I am sure your husband shall miss your children also?” he asked, for some reason wanting to prolong the conversation but not quite knowing what to say.

    Noticing two empty stalls placed just behind them Joan nodded to them before making her way over to one where she patted the free one for Gabriel to sit if he so wished to. "We have no children; he has a house in Cornwall I have never been back there and have no intentions to do so. As it is not mine; I have no claim to it. He is a good man I guess we just did not suit each other I'm not too sure really just why we never got along." Joan gave way to a heavy sigh it was exhausting to explain her current situation; especially to a man who led a far much more exciting life than she herself did. She felt her cheeks flush eager to learn just who the man was sitting next to her and what adventures he got up to away from here. "What about you Gabriel by the looks of your foreign trinkets you seem to have quite the adventure wherever you go is there a Mrs Latimer "

Gabriel lingered and watched Joan move to the quiet behind the stalls. He glanced to the trader by his side, engaged in a conversation with a young couple - obviously with more money than sense, all too willing to be fooled out of a coin or two. Gabriel smirked quietly to himself, a crooked grin that touched his eyes and made them crease - as if he imagined something as equal in sin as in pleasure.

"Then surely," Gabriel begin, slipping his hands into his pockets, "And forgive me, please...he is a fool. And the only Mrs Latimer is my mother, no greater angel has the world seen," he said honestly, "I'm a naval soldier. I somehow made them overlook my accent and my politics to let me onto their ships. It is a good life, I am often far away for long bouts of time but I would not trade it. I have seen a thousand sunsets at sea, each different and more beautiful than the last...and of course, my profession allows me the opportunity of some quiet enterprise."

    With each new information Joan learnt about this man her diminishing fire was starting to burn strong within her once again. It was no secret that she had missed her lustful thoughts to feel the lips of a man on hers again was a thing of dreams nowadays. Still; as Joan took Gabriel in her mind wondered into unadulterated territory as to what it would be like to kiss him. "You have an idyllic lifestyle some would say that you are married to the sea... but do you not miss the touch of a woman."

Gabriel laughed deeply, raising his eyebrows in shock, “Well, that is why they give us shore leave, Joan,” he finally replied with a grin, winking discreetly at her.
There are young lads - daft young things - who bring their girls on the ship. Some amount of bother is causes. By the second night they are either fighting or the girl has caught the eye of another or has been taken down with sickness. Both normally leave by the time we find port...it is no life for the gentle... And although we’ve starved - sometimes for weeks - and I was sick like a dog when I began - just a young lad - I'd never trade it. Still, as I say, no life for a family. I’d never wish it on any gentlewoman to be my wife, waiting for me to be home for just month and then away for half the year. Besides, if I had a woman, really had one, I wouldn’t let her out my sight. I'd be home every night to see our child on her hip and not return to find my children half grown and her half old and her looks all but gone,” he joked a little, realising how much he had spoke - how much he felt he could tell her.

    "Then are you to leave for sure now is your visit to England just a fleeting one before you set off to discover new lands filled with riches. " Joan could not be so sure why she would feel sad if his visit was a fleeting moment she guessed it was because he had so much adventure seeping through his veins that Joan just wanted to reach out and have a taste of his life.

Gabriel shook his head, "No, no I only arrived back last night. I'll be here for a month or so - perhaps I'll visit home - but I intend to stay on soil for a while...at least until the spring. I'm getting a bit too old to be out at sea during the winter. Although because of the weather we spent our Christmas in Italy which was...an experience."

Gabriel laughed a litte at the memory. It was the one place he could keep returning to, not as much as Ireland of course, but it did have some kind of pull on him. He couldn't even say it was for a woman, although the ones he spent time with were all very beautiful. It was something in the whisper of the streets at night, as if there were a history that spoke under the shadows to the stars.

    "Apart from business why come back here" Joan asked; dusting her day dress down from the dust that began to seep into it it wasn't a particularly dirty market unlike some others; but as soon as it was afternoon it would be getting dark.

Gabriel shrugged, "You only appreciate the sea when you have time on land. I would hate to get sick of it."

He glanced behind him and noticed quite a crowd had gathered around the stall. He looked back to Joan with a polite smile, "Well, Joan, I am glad to have met you...yet business beckons me away. Perhaps we shall meet again," he added, half hoping they would.

    Joan had know found herself wondering what she would be like at sea. She had read about it in many books heard the calming waves. Yet she had never sailed or even been in a boat. To ride upon the majestic waves of the sea must be phenomenal. "Of course I did not mean to keep your time." As their conversation was coming to an end. Joan realized how much she had missed just being in the company of someone or even just talking. "I very much hope we do meet again, you're very different from any other man I had made my acquaintance with."

Gabriel had already shuffled closer to a couple near the complement of neatly folded laces at the edge of the stall. Taking one piece in hand, he raised it to the light and highlighted the intricacy of the work, “Kenmare lace, a very fine piece,” he said gently, talking more to the woman than the man beside her and beginning his usual speech when about to make a sale, "You won't find the like anywhere else."

Indeed, given the softness of his voice and the directness of his gaze, it might have even seemed like he was describing the woman and not the fabric. It was - of course - a pretence, he had sold enough goods to know most men’s purse strings were held by their women.

Yet Joan’s voice distracted him and he paused, holding the lace mid-air and turning to face her. For some reason, unknown even to him, he called to her, “I intend to visit the chapel at Whitehall this evening.”

It was no lie. His Catholic upbringing ensured he at least felt some guilt for profiting from stolen and black-market goods. Still, the draw of seeing Joan was greater than absolution from a priest, “Perhaps...I might see you there.”
