Daily Prompt: opposite

From Protector of the Grey House:

Joseph stood, picking her up as he did so. “I will take you somewhere we can speak freely.”

He carried her out of the library and up the stairs to his bedroom. Once inside, he set her on the bed, locked the door and pulled out his remote to secure the room. He turned back to Natalia to see her buttoning her dress. He smiled slightly then went to sit in a chair opposite the bed. She was looking around the room; she had never been in here before. It was as big as Vincent’s sitting room, contained a king-sized bed, several dressers, a desk, and several chairs. There were also two closets. She turned her attention back to Joseph.

“You released Anthony tonight?” It was almost a statement.

She nodded. “It was hard. It took a lot out of me.”

“Your will was already weakened.” He leaned forward, placing his elbows on his knees and his head on his hands.
