Teaser Tuesday #78

Ed ecco di nuovo la rubrica settimanale Teaser Tuesday, creata dal blog Should Be Reading, che si divide in poche, semplici fasi:
1_ prendi il libro che stai leggendo
2_ apri una pagina a caso
3_ scrivi un breve brano (stando attenti a non spoilerare)
4_ scrivi titolo e autore

The same sneer again: You are nothing without a man; the same unanswerable demand: You must take a champion - Guenevere's soul shriveled with impotent rage.
King Leogrance reached for more wine. "You cannot rule alone," he said stubbornly. "Your mother was a warrior, battle-trained. She was descended from our Queens who fought against the Romans. One of her foremothers laid all England waste. But you have seen no blood." He smirked. A glint of former triumphs lit his eye."And your mother had a champion when she came to the throne. I was the greatest fighter of my day. You must have a champion too."
"But why?" Guenevere cried out. "All I do tomorrow is to claim the Mother-right!"
"Daughter, when war looms as it does now, the people will want a war leader before they'll make you Queen! You'll need a champion to win their acclaim. And when you do, take him for life, and forget the old ways."
Guenevere gasped. "Forget the old ways of the Mother herself? But our women have had the right of thigh-friendship since time out of mind! It is the freedom of the Mother to give love where She chooses."
"The Christians do not permit it."
"The Christians?" She was blazing with anger. "By what right do they dictate our customs now?"
 - Guenevere, Queen of the Summer Country, Rosalind Miles
