Reinette, Madame de Pompadour
I am Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, Marquise de Pompadour. My family and friends refer to me as "Reinette". I was mistress to his royal majesty, King Louis XV, his maitress en titre.

I have a message and a question. A message from the Doctor and a question from me. W h e r e I s M y W i f e?
"Does that mean you will do all the work, too?" Sigma asked in typical Doctor fashion. He was a parallel version of himself after all and the Doctor was never one for lessons as a kid. "Because if you do I’m okay with it."
"You should know better, Sigma. What would you gain in me doing the work? Do you not want to expand your mind?" Reinette asked him. "I know you are intelligent, show me. Demonstrate it through the exercises that he will give you. Impress me. If you do, I will make your favorite meal tonight."
The Doctor silently watched her with the children. It was written all over their faces how much they adored her. Theo started giggling at her playfulness, while the others tried to join in. They all wanted her attention. It was a beautiful sight in the Doctor’s eyes and when she told Sigma about doing something that brings him passion in life, rather than something that would gain him money, he felt proud of Reinette.
"Well, now that this crisis is averted I think it’s best everyone goes to the Curabitur aliquet ultricies…which means?” He saw the looks on the kids faces, knowing it was a look of dread.
"Classroom in earth Latin and in Filorumbian, a language that nearly mimics earth Latin, it’s Curabitor aliquat ultricaes," Sigma replied.
“Gooood." The Doctor turned to Reinette. "I know you usually get other work done when I’m brain buffering the time tots but do you want to see a lesson this time?"
She was happy as a mother and wife, genuinely basking in the love they gave her and the love she could return. Holding Theo in her arms, she listened to Sigma explain what Curabitur aliquet ultricies. She was familiar and fluent in Latin, so it was a mark of pride for her to know the children would be as well.
Normally she would sketch or take a stroll while the children were at their lessons with the Doctor. It was time for her to do the activities that she couldn’t when she had the children to look after. But with this tempting offer, she couldn’t resist.
"Nothing would bring me greater pleasure." Reinette told the Doctor. "What do you think?" She addressed the little ones, giving them a loving smile. "May I watch your lessons today?"
