Amandine shook her head. "It is not necessary to apologise. I cannot deny that I do not understand your reasons for kissing me - all I know for certain is that I enjoyed it. I liked it, I wanted it, and.... and it made me scared. I know how you are, Lysander, you told me in France! You love the women... and I care too much for you than to simply be an extra notch on your bedpost. I would not be able to handle that. I would not - betray my husband for something so trivial and belittling."
