She didn't like it, but his man followed her as she got out of the hired carriage that had pulled up before Douglas Gordon's home. She did not like it one bit! It felt unnecessary to have a guard following her at all times, but it had been decided among the menfolk that she needed the extra protection. In a way, it was flattering that they thought her life precious enough for such a thing.

Pippa approached the door and gave a light rap upon it, then waited with her hands in front of her, folded into a bit of a hand knot as she sought to gain control of her emotions. That was no easy feat either, for the baby was making it hard for her to stay in a good enough mood. Her eyes dropped and she sighed.

She would still have to talk to Douglas about the baby, and she still had yet to tell Viktre that she was inspecting. She highly doubted he'd marry her, and she didn't want to get married either... but it seemed that was also next on the agenda unless she locked herself away in Dr. Wells' house and lived out her pregnancy there before giving the babe up for adoption.

With a sigh, she knocked again.

Since Mr. Roberts was keeping an eye on Pip, Mr. Friaser was doing the butler job along with being the valet.  He came to the door and opened it.  "Good day, Ma'am.  I am guess yu are 'ere tae see the Earl."  He moved to the side and let her in and gave Mr. Roberts a nod of his head letting his friend know that she was safe inside.

" 'e's at the painting in the main room, ma'am.  Just come this way."  He led the way.  At the doorway, Douglas could be seen with a large canvas that he was working on of Tristan.  He had nearly got it done but had a few details still to get touched on.  Currently, Douglas was not wearing a jacket nor vest.  He just had on a loose white (well not totally white thanks to painting splashes there and here) shirt that hang down around his thighs over his tan slacks.  He was also barefooted as he had not expected company.

"Mi'lord, Miss Phillippa to see yu."  Mr. Fraiser stated.

Douglas looked over.  He stood up a bit distracted as his mind was still on the way Tristan's hands were held there on a book.

She nodded to Mister Fraser and said, "Thank you..." as she was escorted into the cottage. Her eyes immediately went to the painting of Tristan as they made their way into the main room.

"I am sorry, my lord, I... I can come back when you aren't busy," she murmured softly.

Douglas waved a hand holding the brush but his eyes were still on the hands trying to figure out what wasn't just right.  Then realizing what it was, he dipped the paintbrush into a different pigment and made a few very delicate flicks of his hand, and then sat back.   A nod showing he was happy about it now.  It was basically done.  He needed to arrange for a frame though, then he could give it to his friend.

He then looked over at the doorway where Pip was standing, and he realized he had heard her talk before and blinked.  "Sorry, I get focused on my work.  This one is for the doctor.  'e 'ired me tae dae 'is portrait awhile back.  It was 'ow we met actually, I think."  He tried to remember, it seemed like a long time ago then.

He looked down at his appearance.  "Um, 'ave a seat, and let me make myself more presentable."  He called out, "Fraiser!"

Fraiser was already back in carrying some socks and shoes and a jacket.  He had known the Earl would need them.  "Thank yu."  Douglas muttered grabbing the socks and putting them on. 

Looking up as he put on the shoes, he was not one on worrying about proper behaviors especially when he was at work painting.  "What can I dae for yu, Miss Danes?"
