"I think nothing, princess. But I do wonder why you would ask me of my sons, as though you imply something. I must tell you, I am a great lover of the truth, and of direct questions. No sidestepping. I'm too old for such things."

I wriggled my nose about. I always imply when it comes to men nowadays. A solider at court wanted to bed a noble lady and she said nay but he didn't stop practically had to fight him off.

She smoothed out her gown.

"And I take it to mean that this soldier in question is in fact my son. Only in implication of course."

I placed my hands on the table wondering if she already knew. If we were in Turkey and those sort of foreign lands do you know what they would of done to you're son? They would of chopped all his man hood away.

She stood up, wishing she could overturn the table and all its goodies upon it. She looked Marguerite straight in the eye. She was just another woman, born under a lucky star that she was a princess. Genevieve smirked and crossed her arms.

"I don't give a fig for what goes on in foreign, savage lands. If you indeed adore such practices then I suggest you join a harem. From what I hear of your bedroom adventures, you're nearly on your way."

She gave a cold smile, knowing it was like an icicle in Marguerite's heart.

"Alas, I've spoiled what could have been a good afternoon. I think I will take supper in my room, where at least I know the company will be polite."

With a swish of her skirts she left the room.

Very thoughtful, I was walking through the corridors of the palace.
I almost didn't realize that I stopped just in front of the door of my sister's chamber.
I turned in that direction and raised my hand to knock, but I wasn't that sure it would have been a good idea to bother her...
Anyway, I took a long breath and finally I knocked: "Marguerite? C'est Henri... Are you in?"

I could hear restless footsteps outside my door my instinct took over and I pulled out my dagger I had had enough of stuck up nobodys coming to my chamber and insulting me I stood my ground firmly and when I had opened the door my eyes were on stalks. Vous avez retourné Je suis heureux de vous voir, please come in

I smiled. She seemed surprised to see me and I had the confirm that she was happy to see me from her own words. That was strange: nobody ever cared that much of me... I'm just the second son...

"Ma chére, oui, je suis ici maintenant et... tu es la première personne que je vois. Merci..."

I entered in her room, feeling a little bit embarrassed. I've always been quite shy...

"Alors... How are you? What have I lost since I was away?"

I tilted my head I was the first person he had seen since coming back he had the complexion of a white ghost but I was very happy to see another royal here at court. Grandmama has taken on even more less royal duties which causes me great sadness the people of France do not respect me as a Princess more like a commoner. I try to sympathize with them over their issue and give them comfort but it is not an easy task. I think I shall take up sewing bedclothes for children as all they want is some love in their life. How does it feel to be back at court after this long tell me about your travels. Now that Henry was back I hoped he could lend me a helping hand with French matters it felt odd not having the support.

I looked at her with my hands behind my back. I remained set on my place. I didn't know where I could go or watch. However, I was very much surprised by her words.

"Are you speaking the truth?" I've always thought my mother was a good Queen. Everybody spoke good of her and her way to reign "This is... unbelievable. What do you mean exactly?"

I came closer to her. She was so little I had to look down in order to watch at her in the eyes.
"Your words upsets me, Marguerite. You are a princess, you have royal blood in the veins. Do not let anybody treat you like a common woman because you're not, ma chére. Tell how can I help you and I will" I said smiling to her.

"Oh, bon... I went hunting with Francis for a couple of weeks... Lady Diane of Poitiers came with us. We decided to return earlier" I explained.

I nodded I was speaking the truth I had not seen my Grandmother at a public occassion in a very long time. Sadly it is true I have not seen her mingling with the courtiers like she used to. Ah yes back to the matter at hand I felt myself shrink smaller and smaller into myself. I respect commoners I am more friendly to them than I think any royal should be but their are some stiff upper lip ones teach me how to be assertive so they shall not treat me like mud.

"They must not. You should show them how a royal treats those who do not respect her. I don't want you to be mean, obviously: with violence you will only increase their hate. On the contrary, you should raise above them and if they treat you like mud, then you should treat them like... merde, shit." I smiled a little and looked down for a moment, embarrassed by my own words "We all have enemies, Marguerite. They will be always there to see us fall and the only way to fight them is being a step forward. Do you understand what I mean? You are not the only one in this position. I can assure you so."

I nodded I understood fully his words I wanted people to see me as a strong princess. You mean to work together instead of against each other like a united front. This I could work on family should always help family especially royalty. I had already been working on my guise in public I wanted to know what he thought of it. As for the public I have decided to act like this I shall imagine that their is a plain glass in front of me which divides us they can see me but they can't touch me or know the real me. This was the only way for me to deal with the commoners and their assumptions of a princess they hardly knew.

I smiled widely to her: "Exactly".
I came closer and took her hands in mine to kiss them: "That is what I meant. Are you feeling a little better, ma chére?" I asked "Is there anything else I could do for you?"
