"That one," Caterina pointed to the second selection of plates Diana had produced from her china cabinet. Harriet was set to arrive within the hour and after setting the dining room table twice herself, the heiress finally decided which plates to accompany the rest of the ensemble.
Taking the plate she hadn't chosen, Caterina smiled gratefully at her secretary. The auburn haired woman returned the gesture before moving to place two plates across from each other on the long table as Caterina placed the leftover plate back where it belonged.
The chandelier that hung above them gave the room a near ethereal glow and paired with the large mirror on the other side of the room, it seemed like a million diamonds reflecting off of each other. It wasn't far from the truth considering how many diamonds hung from the gold metal, but alone they didn't nearly give off this amazing effect. Diana had really out done herself when they had decorated this house.
Capturing her reflection, the woman fluffed her hair as she bared her teeth, and from this far away Cat could spy the small red fleck painted on her front teeth. Letting out a small noise of disapproval, she lifted a hand to scrub at the mark when Diana returned with a bucket housing a uncorked bottle of red wine.
"What?" She asked the woman when she caught her staring, her hand immediately dropping down to her side.
"Nothing," Diana answered, though her brow didn't lower even after Caterina rolled her eyes and exited the dining room.
Adjusting the cuffs of her robes, Caterina took a seat on the lounger in her most favored sitting room, her left leg disappearing beneath her as she reached for the scroll she had previously abandoned when she'd decided once again to change up her choice in dishware, "Diana, please make sure Honey remembers not to over season the meal tonight. I might like a lot of flavor, but we don't want to overwhelm the witch."
