Duke d’Orleans, A Shy One At the Orgy – IV


In the days of Regency there were too many women vying for Duke of Orleans’ attention. Two of them, La Sabran and Falari knew each other well. One time Falari was gossiping with the Duke, while La Sabran happened to be eavesdropping by the door; then, unhappy about what she had heard, La Sabran bursted into the room, accusing Falari of telling lies. The Regent laughed, “Everything she told me about you is true, and I don’t think she is done yet; so, why don’t you go back to your keyhole, and listen.” (Continued-1), (Continued-2), (Continued-3), (Continued -5)
