Well, this was certainly awkward.
Tom had been fully aware of the rather ridiculous tradition of the fellas staying behind after a meal to drink posh booze, but he’d envisioned being exempt from it. After all, he was an ex-servant for God’s sake. He used to work here…and now he was getting served here. Jesus, he could barely look any of his old colleagues in the eye. What must they think of him?
He forced himself to fix his gaze upon his lordship, Robert, father-in-law…he didn’t know what to call him. Tom smiled, there wasn’t much else he could do. His eyes quickly snapped back down to his glass of brandy, having been met with little much other than hostility.
Sybil had gone to spend time with her sisters and her mother, which is why they had come here, so she could do just that. He was never going to have stayed at home alone while she was away, and he didn’t regret accompanying her at all. But put it this way, not every member of her family were exactly welcoming.
