Caitriona Balfe || Paris "There is a moment in your story when you can pinpoint the exact time you fell in love, be it with a place or a person. I can remember both like it was yesterday. I had just left a casting where I had, again, been humiliatingly rejected in front of 20 of my peers. Choking back tears I had rushed out of the building and ran to a nearby park hoping to find a secluded spot. My eyes burning, willing myself to get it together, I looked up to the sky hoping for some divine comfort and suddenly everything stopped.
I realized I was surrounded by the most beautiful square, Place des Vosges. With its rose-hued walls, the square softly glowed in the sunlight and radiated calm and beauty. My sobs subsided, and I was hit with the most over powering sense of gratitude. I forgot about the casting director who had just reduced me to nothing. I wasn’t nothing. I was a young Irish woman, and I was here, realizing a dream and living in the most beautiful city in the world. …Eventually, though, I would move on — to London, New York, Los Angeles and then Glasgow, each with their own magic and beauty.
But on certain sunny days, I am always brought back to my bench in Place des Vosges, and my heart swells for a beat. It’s true, you never forget your first love, and, for me, that will always be Paris."
- Aye, I'm here.
- I need to know, after we raided the clan MacDonald and stole the 20 kine from under their noses...
- Aye, I remember.
- We held up at Florrach for days. But we ate well, no?
- Aye. Aye, we did for sure.
- Tell me here now, man. Did you bed my sister Doreen?
- Aye. I did bed her. But, you know, she was a bonny lass.
- I ken it. You always could charm the lasses.
- It will be better soon. The pain will be gone soon.
- It feels better now. I canna feel my leg anymore, Dougal. My hands neither. Dougal, are you there, man?
- I'm here, I'm here, I'm here. I've got you.
- Geordie. Tell me about your home.
- It's near a wide glen. Not far from Loch Fannich.
- What's it like there? I'll wager it's beautiful.
- Tis. In the spring...
- The heather's so thick, ye can walk across the tops without touching the ground.
- That sounds lovely.
- Wish I could be there now.
- You'll be there soon, lad.
- Aye. Will ye stay with me?
- There you are. There.
Geordie asks Dougal if he slept with his sister. Dougal admits he did since she was a beautiful girl.
Claire tells Geordie that the pain will soon be gone. He can no longer feel his leg or his hands. Dougal comforts the man as Claire asks Geordie about his home. He describes it for her. She says it sounds lovely, and he wishes he was there. Dougal tells him he'll be there soon. Claire and Dougal promises that they'll stay with him. Shortly after that, Geordie dies in a weeping Dougal's arms
