The Duke’s Arrival


Presently, a tall, dark-haired man with broad shoulders and a tidy goatee enters the infirmary. You cannot help but notice that he is very handsome! And also that he only has one eye, and wears an eye-patch of xarbenian silk. Happily, it is one of those irregularities of feature that serves only to make the bearer more attractive, rather than less, much like a charmingly crooked smile, or an alluring and mysterious third nipple.

“Darling,” the man declares, “it is I, Duke Dashington, your fiancé!”

“Gasp!” you breathe. “Really?”

“It’s true!” the Duke proclaims, stepping forward to sweep you into his arms and cover your mouth with a sensual kiss.

Well! This is a surprising turn of events! How shall you respond?

1) How would any young woman with no memory of herself respond to a handsome man who claims to be her fiancé? Kiss him back, and marry him as soon as possible!

2) Even if you are affianced, this man is taking astonishing liberties! Punch him in the face!
