The Mark of PassionPosted: April 6, 2016
If I have to, I will take an oath as security for the sincerity of my word, and promise that I shall abide by it!
Sounds like something out of the Justinian Digest
True, it does have an Ulpian ring to it… he was the one who said that if you swear by your own life, you seem to also swear by the divine power, was it not?
Yes, something to that effect
Well, in that case you have my word, but if it’s not enough, I will have it inscribed on birch bark like a Sanskrit love letter
No need… your passion hits the mark
I’m glad, and please do pardon me my lady if I seem a bit too overzealous. I admit when I’m consumed by an intense desire it can be too much…
Pardon is really the cancellation of a penalty so that won’t be necessary. Besides, love can never be too much
Must we seal it with a touch?
I see no harm in doing so
