‘it was quiet. TOO quiet. so quiet everyone heard the fart.’
I have always been interested to understand why Claire so desperately hates to show weakness or feel that she is weak. Thinking of MOBY after her injury & then later at the ridge when she challenges Jamie's protective action by telling him that she is not a state of war & he is not her army. She later relents & agrees with him. I have always respected Claire's strength but even Claire has her limits. Are there other examples of a younger Claire desperately hating her own perceived weakness?
