A family conference

((OOC note: This post takes place after this and prior to this.))

After seeing Iris and Tobias safely off, the remaining Chesapeake sisters gather in Lily's room in their temporary lodgings. Unable to contain herself any longer, Heather asks, "Eldest, why'd you say yes? Now we have to get twice as much!"

"Shush," Lily admonishes. "It could have been worse." She levels a gaze at her younger sister. "And you might want to think about your own groom price, instead of mine and Iris's."

It's a low blow, she knows, but after dealing with Tobias's formidable mother, her patience is in short supply.

Heather opens her mouth, then closes it. She blinks several times, then squares her chin. When she speaks, her voice is tight. "All right, I will."

Her shoulders stiff, she turns and enters the room she's sharing with Marigold, not once looking back.

Rose watches their younger sister go, and sighs softly. "You didn't have to be so hard on her," she says quietly to their eldest sister.

Sighing softly, Lily rubs her temples, trying to alleviate the ache that's built up there. "I know, I know," she replies after a perceptible pause. "I'll make it up to her later."

She searches through her healer's kit for the pouch of lavender; locating it, she starts making up a compress. "Right now, though, I have such a headache...we'll talk about this later."

Once she's finally alone, she gratefully sinks down, placing the compress on her forehead. As the soothing fragrance of the lavender permeates her senses, she feels the muscles in her neck unkink and finally relaxes, if only for a time.

She recalls an old saying, a favorite of her father's: **Physician, heal thyself.**
