Ella couldn't be happier at that moment, the moment when her tutor was praising her for her first artwork. It was a simple painting of a sunflower but still it was her first painting ever and she loved how the slim brush can create such blend of colors.
It always amazed Ella how nature had such fine hue of reflections. From a dirty looking brown sand to the emblazing yellow sun, everything amazed her.
It was unfortunate that she couldn't enjoy the beauty before due to many pits life had thrown her into. But now that chance came, she couldn't contain her excitement within herself. She liked Xander a little bit more for giving her the opportunity to experience something like that.
"Excellent, My Lady." The governess smiled making Ella smile brightly in return. "You have a great style in mixing colors, My Lady. Next time we will learn how to extract yellow coloring from dandelions." And Ella's joy knew no bounds. She would learn how to get a color from flowers and that was the best thing for her.
"Are you enjoying, darling?" She heard raspy whisper of her husband from behind which startled her. She raised her head up to find her tutor and Lucy nowhere to be seen. She slowly turned back to see Xander bent down to her level, giving her a heated gaze.
"How was it? Do you like it?" Xander wrapped his hands around Ella's waist pulling her close to him. He was smiling like a bamboozle looking at the content looking on his lovely wife's face. What could he not give to get such a smile from his wife.
