I walked in silence towards my Mothers chambers, a smile upon my lips as today was going to be the most special - I was to spend the day with my Mother just the two of us which is something I had longed for for what seemed an aged.

The morning sun shone through the windows as I approached the guards outside the door, they bowed as I stood before them waiting to be announced

As the doors opened, Şah put down her brush and went over to her daughter. Şah loved her daughter more than anyone else in this world. Esmahan. Şah opened up her arms to her.

Mother my smile wide as I saw her and almost ran into her open arms You look so radiant this morning I whisper as she held me close

Despite having been reunited for a while now, the time I had spent away from the Palace and my Mother had been a nightmare for me, I had missed her so much and I held her tight never wanting to let my Mother go again

Thank you daughter. I am so very blessed to have a daughter as loving and kind as you. It makes all the hardships of marriage worth it. Although Esmahan barely had her father around. She, was brought up with the greatest females this empire had ever seen!

I blushed at my Mother's compliment

How could I not be loving and kind, I am of your flesh I smile You are one of the most loving women I know along with my Aunts

I was so thankful that I was part of this wonderful family with such strong females that I could look up to and follow their examples

Come and sit with me daughter I would like to know how you are finding life in the palace. $ah did wonder if she had seen her uncle yet. Süleyman always liked to be the first to welcome all his nieces back into the empire.

I smile at my Mother and followed her further into the room

It is most welcoming and here I feel at peace I reply Although I am still finding my way but the servants have been most helpful. I have spent time with Aunt Hatice and I am ashamed to say I have not really met my Uncle.

I lower my head and take a breath

I believe I should have gone to Uncle first but my heart ached to see you and Aunt Hatice

$ah gathered her daughter into her arms stroking her smooth silky black hair off her shoulders. But you met him at the little gathering we had. Even if it was only for a brief time now you know what he looks like you need not be afraid. She couldn't understand why people feared her brother as underneath the crown he was a gentle soul.

I know Mother and I was so pleased to see him yet I feel that I should have met my Uncle first on our own and that maybe I have been disrespectful

I feel my body relax in my Mother's arms

I love him not because he is a great man but because I recall when I was young and loved spending time with Uncle I look at my Mother and smile I hope one day to have a husband who is as honourable as my Uncle

Her brother was a very busy man but he always made time for his family. Sah was rather surprised that he himself didn't summon Esmahan to see him first. You have shown nobody no disrespect, my daughter. I know that our Valide is back at the palacr and I think it is time to have a family meal. In recent months it felt like her sisters had been scattered everywhere. What with new arrivals such as nieces and young Mustafa back. It seemed like the right time for everyone to catch up. Sah had wished the same thing for her husband but Allah had other plans. Maybe their marriage not working out would lead to brighter and better things for herself and her daughter. It was greed that had turned her husband into the person he had become. Your uncle and I will discuss and choose very carefully who you shall marry he wants only the best for his nieces.

I smile warmly at my beautiful Mother

I had heard that our Valide has returned to the Palace and I would so much like to see all my Family

Knowing that my Mother and Uncle would choose my future Husband eased my mind greatly, they are both so wise and will always have my best interest at heart.

I look forward to the day you choose my future Husband I reply feeling my cheeks warm as I blush

Dilara was escorted by an eunuch until Şah Sultan' chambers. It was time to introduce herself to the Sultan's sister. She felt a bit nervous. As she entered, she noticed that her daughter was with her. She bowed deeply

"Sultanim.."

She whispered lowering her eyes

She smiled after hearing her daughter's words. Everything shall be left down to Süleyman when the arrangements of marriage were to be made. Her attention was diverted to the young concubine bowing deeply before them. You may rise young Hatun. She moved so she stood before her in a kind manner of course. Not in an imposing way she wanted the young girl to not be afraid of her. I am very glad to have you at my service it has been a while since I had my own personal lady.

Dilara smiled softly raising from her curtsy. She looked at her and at her daughter

"I feel very honoured to serve you, Sultanim. My name is Dilara. I just came to Palace.."

She said with soft voice. She noticed that her daughter was beautiful like her mother, and she looked like her

Where do you originally come. We have many girls in all kinds of origins in the harem you might find one who comes from the same town as you. The palace could be a lonely place for all people including royals.

Dilara smiled softly

"I come from Albania, Sultanim. But my mother is turkish. I was raised into a little village. And this is the first time I see Istanbul and this beautiful Palace, Sultanim.."

She replied, still keeping her eyes lowered, as Nigar Kalfa taught to her when she came in harem

Sah had never heard of a concubine with Turkish origins. It must feel peculiar for the young Hatun to come to her mother's land bound as a slave! Albania how did your mother end up there. Sah asked her with curiosity it was proving rather fascinating. If Dilara had any relations in Turkey it was best not to ask nor she tells anyone else. People could hold it against her blackmail even just so she could do their unclean work.

Dilara joined her hands together and took a breath

"My mother met my father here in Turkey. He was an albanian trader. So he brought her in his country after the marriage. That's why I have albanian origins, Sultanim.."

She explained, still keeping her glance on the floor. After finishing her sentence, she thought that even Mahidevran Sultan, Sultan Suleyman's Haseki, was albanian

I think that you would get on perfectly with our Valide. Her lineage is rather amazing would you like to meet her. People feared the Valide who was an amazing woman and founder of the Mesir Festival. Among many other things as well.

Dilara was very surprised hearing such invitation. She knew that Valide Sultan was very selective towards ladies in harem. She smiled

"This would be a great honour, Sultanim. Of course I would like to meet her.."

She replied, lowering again her eyes at the end of the sentence

Sah was very pleased to hear this. Unlike some her new lady in waiting seem rather enthusiastic of meeting the very first Valide of our dynasty. Our Valide mother always liked to know what was going on in the harem. So in time they would've met somehow. Good I shall let you know when I am next to meet her and you can accompany me. Until then would you like to see our gardens. I imagine it can get rather stuffy being cooped up in harem.

Dilara showed a grateful smile. Her sultana was kindest that she thought

"Thank you, Sultanim. I would love that very much. I heard a lot talking about Topkapi's gardens. I shall be honoured to accompany you.."

She said with a low curtsy
