little first blood things: genevieve salvatore
"She was a proper lady, your mother. But at the same time she was more than just that. She was very good with words. How to use them, when to use them and how to pick them to better suit who she was talking to. She also knew when not to speak at all. Your father met her just before the rebellion ended. The kind heart that she was, she helped aid the wounded men. One of those men was Giuseppe.
I don’t think I can remember much after that, my child, but it didn’t take long before he took her as his wife. She was a gift from the gods, if you ask me. She put him in his place. She wasn’t scared of him or his anger. War can change a man, dear, and Giuseppe was changed for the worse. Always angry and irritable. Genevieve was the only person who had the ability to appease him, to calm him—love him. That’s why everyone loved her. But no one loved her more than Giuseppe.”
