"Is there something so wrong with that, though, if she's happy?" Matt couldn't help but ask, tilting his head just slightly. "No, perhaps it wasn't entirely conventional, but you know as well as I do that she and Julius make each other happier than I've ever seen." Not that he knew much of how Genevieve was before Julius, but still. "Would you ever consider doing as she has?"
Oh, perhaps he shouldn't have asked that. It wasn't any of his business really, was it? He nodded, slowly. "Aye, I have. And maybe- I don't know. Maybe I shouldn't, but I can't help it, Penny, truly. I only wish that I hadn't- I shouldn't have, not when we were both tipsy. In truth, I wish-" He broke off, shaking his head. Perhaps he shouldn't admit that one aloud.
