The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

Lady de Winter seemed to forget we were on bad terms. She was friendly— very friendly. He called his secretary and gave an order—no ships would be allowed to leave England. There was a look of relief on his face.

He stared at Buckingham in amazement. The king had given him complete power—and he used it to serve his love! In secret, the jeweler and his men worked day and night. Two days later, the buttons were finished.

Twelve hours later, he was in Paris. The cardinal noticed the queen was not wearing her diamond buttons. He smiled and told the king. The king was angry with the queen.

She bowed and went to her dressing room. The cardinal went to the king and handed him a box. Inside were two diamond buttons. If there are only ten, ask her who could have stolen these two. The diamond buttons sparkled on the shoulders of her ballgown. The dancing began.

Every time the queen came close to the king, he tried to count the buttons— but there was never enough time! He dreams of joining the Musketeers, the king's elite guard. D'Artagnan visits fellow Gascon, also from the Gascony region of France, and captain of the Musketeers, Monsieur de Treville , in hopes of gaining an appointment based on a shared cultural bond.

He also makes his first enemy, Rochefort, a spy for the Cardinal de Richelieu.

D'Artagnan's first adventure involves helping his landlord Bonacieux whose wife, one of the queen's confidantes, has been abducted by Rochefort. When Madame Mme. Bonacieux escapes, she enlists d'Artagnan's help in retrieving the queen's diamonds. The queen had impulsively given them to her lover, the Duke of Buckingham. By the time d'Artagnan returns from England and saves the queen's honor, he and Mme. Bonacieux are in love. Unfortunately, Rochefort abducts her again. Athos , usually private and taciturn, reveals to d'Artagnan he had been the lord of an estate and married the curate's young sister—only to have her hanged after discovering she was a criminal.

Meanwhile, the Englishman Lord de Winter introduces d'Artagnan to his sister-in-law Milady de Winter , whom d'Artagnan recognizes as a spy for the cardinal. Captivated by her beauty and charm, d'Artagnan becomes infatuated with Milady. She, on the other hand, loathes d'Artagnan because he did not kill Lord de Winter in a duel when she wanted Lord de Winter's money.

Milady loves the Comte de Wardes, so d'Artagnan gets his revenge by pretending to be the Comte.

When the truth is revealed, Milady tries to kill d'Artagnan with a knife, but not before he sees a fleur-de-lis on her shoulder. D'Artagnan suspects Milady is Athos's wife, who is still very much alive. Never sell it; allow it to die tranquilly and honorably of old age, and if you make a campaign with it, take as much care of it as you would of an old servant. At court, provided you have ever the honor to go there," continued M.

By the latter I mean your relatives and friends. Endure nothing from anyone except Monsieur the Cardinal and the king.

It is by his courage, please observe, by his courage alone, that a gentleman can make his way nowadays. Whoever hesitates for a second perhaps allows the bait to escape which during that exact second fortune held out to him.

You are young. You ought to be brave for two reasons: the first is that you are a Gascon, and the second is that you are my son. Never fear quarrels, but seek adventures.

I have taught you how to handle a sword; you have thews of iron, a wrist of steel.God will surely punish you later—but I will punish you today! Whoever hesitates for a second perhaps allows the bait to escape which during that exact second fortune held out to him. She took two steps and fell to her knees. On the way, he stopped at an inn at Arras for a fresh horse. She told Felton that Buckingham had kept her captive in his house.


Her beautiful white shoulder was branded with the fleur-de-lis!
