Julia Quinn Quote

Iris was interrupted by a resounding crash. Or not exactly acrash. More like a splintering sound. With a few pops. And twangs.What was that? Iris asked.I don’t know. Honoria craned her neck. It sounded like—Oh, Honoria! they heard Daisy shriek. Your violin!What? Honoria walked slowly toward the commotion, notquite able to put two and two together.Oh, my heavens, Iris said abruptly, her hand coming to hermouth. She lay a restraining hand on Honoria, as if to say—It’sbetter if you don’t look.What is going on? I— Honoria’s jaw went slack.Lady Honoria! Lady Danbury barked. So sorry about yourviolin.Honoria only blinked, staring down at the mangled remains ofher instrument. What? How . . . ?Lady Danbury shook her head with what Honoria suspectedwas exaggerated regret. I have no idea. The cane, you know. Imust have knocked it off the table.Honoria felt her mouth opening and closing, but no sound wasemerging. Her violin didn’t look as if it had been knocked off atable. Honestly, Honoria was at a loss as to how it could have gotinto such a state. It was absolutely wrecked. Every string hadsnapped, pieces of wood were completely detached, and the chinrest was nowhere to be seen.Clearly, it had been trampled by an elephant.
