Snippet: Too Many

     “Did you enjoy the dancing last night?” Cordula cinched Ilona’s laces firmly.
     “I did.  I had more partners than I knew what to do with.”
     “Any of them catch your fancy?”  She smoothed Ilona’s hem with a practiced hand.
     Ilona leaned against her mahogany bedpost and played with the edge of the blue silk covers.  “Two…I think.”
     “Two!”  Cordula scowled.  “Well, you cannot marry but one.”
