The following quote is taken from Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 41. Journey’s End. Copyright (c) 1997 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

“I knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that I wasn’t alone. Damn, and I’d left my knife on the table inside!

“Sassenach.” My heart nearly stopped at the sound of Jamie’s voice. I spun toward it, relief being rapidly overcome by annoyance. What did he think he-

For a split second, I thought I was seeing double. They were sitting on the bench outside the door, side by side, the afternoon sun igniting their hair like matchheads.

My eyes focused on Jamie’s face, alight with joy- then shifted right.

“Mama.” It was the same expression; eagerness and joy and longing all together. I had no time even to think before she was in my arms, and I was in the air, knocked off my feet both literally and figuratively.”

[> What a shock for Claire! I like that Jamie and Brianna were quietly sitting so Claire could see them together. -- LisaW, 05:37:48 09/11/15 Fri
