Fatma sat up rather proudly at her brothers compliment. I feel rather lucky that me and Lufti still love each other despite our age. I think he can understand me like no other and that has come with the years of marriage.

Şah squeezed her daughters hand when her sister spoke. Their was so much that only Şah and her daughter knew about Lüfti. Her family were non the wiser to his manipulative, beating ways. Fatma you are truly lucky. I like to count my blessings in that of my daughter. As we sometimes see ourselves in the face of our children.

Suleyman smiled at Fatma. But Sah's words made him remind that she was not having an happy marriage

I'm happy to hear that, Fatma. But you, dear Sah..don't feel unlucky. You have a beautiful and sweet daughter, who is the image of her mother. And you have me and your sisters. But of course, if you wish talking privately about such matters, I'll give you my time later with much pleasure, sister..

He added, knowing her situation

My heart ached for my Mother's pain and I squeezed her hand as she spoke to my Aunt Fatma, I was thankful to be back with my Family away from the fear and terror we had experienced at the hands of my Father.

Hearing my Uncle speak I turned to face him and felt my face blush red at his compliment, I shake my head and lower my eyes unused to being told that I am beautiful Hunkarim I can only pray that I may grow as beautiful as my Mother and Aunts I whisper

Suleyman extended his hand until he reached Esmahan's chin. He noticed her blushing and smiled

You already are, Esmahan. You already are. I'm so very proud of you..

Probably his niece saw a father figure in him, since her relationship with her father was very hard. And maybe she also saw in him the ideal man, the one she always wished as her future husband. That's why he was very tender towards her

Nuriye looked at her father extremely hurt. She had come here so her father could make up to her all the years he had her sent away. But it felt like a constant battle and competition for his affections. Their was only one person in this entire palace who could fix things for her the Valide. Standing she extended her hand out to her brother.

Come Mustafa let's leave them all to play happy families whilst we go see our Valide.

I looked up as my Uncle's hand brushes against my chin and wished my Father had been as tender and loving towards me, Mustafa and Nuriye were so very lucky.

I shall do my very best to always make you proud Uncle I promise I smile at my Uncle as my eyes settle on my dear cousin as she stands, I can tell from her expression that she is hurt but can not understand why until she speaks and goes to leave.

Nuriye please stay, we want to get to know you I plead

With her mother's health now slightly improved Sah had reached out to her mother and asked to meet. She had brought along her lady in waiting a new arrival who was rather eager to meet history's first ever Valide.

The Valide sat under a shaded canopy with her ladies in waiting. They were watching young Mustafa and Ibrahim play fighting with a wooden sword the young lion cub wore an eager expression on his face. The Valide had been here for so long that she couldn't remember the past time of her life before here only the love she felt for her husband. And all the blessings they received in the form of children. It hadn't always been so easy sailing for the Valide... The old Sultan had sired a boy from another concubine she lived in fear for many years.

When Suleyman took the throne at last all her years of worrying would be over... that was what she had thought. The ancient law of the Ottomans decreed when a male heir takes the throne, he was to wipe out all of his siblings from the other concubines that the Sultan had. Yet her son did not do this, probably because he did not wish to be seen as a tyrant. Growing irritated Ayse noticed her daughter so who was rather political for a Sultanate woman entering the gardens with a new concubine.

Sah such joy for you to join me today I was just preparing my mind for the month of fasting coming up.

Young Mustafa charged around with his bodyguard wishing that Ibrahim would help the five year old with his practise. He was missed immensely, as was Bali Bey the coolest and most deadly assassin ever to work for his Father. He had much respect for both of these men and noticed that his aunt and second cousin also loved having them about the palace too. Noticing his aunt approaching Mustafa dropped his play sword rushing quickly to his beloved Valide. Is
baba ve anne to join us...


His big brown eye's looked lovingly up at his Valide before gulping back a cup of water everything felt greater now the valid was back. Still Mustafa missed the familiar scent of his mother's perfume and his enchanting smile that always brightened up the dullest of days. For a boy of only five such blessings it was to be surrounded by family that adored him in many ways, but one would this change now Ahmed was a year old?

Being here was still very painful for Beyan to deal with. At times she avoided her brother seeing the face of her husband whenever she cast her gaze upon his face. Communications with Hatice and Sah were kept up over the years, neither of them, judging her for living her life away from Topkapi. If you were to meet Beyan walking down the street you would never know that she descended from the greatest bloodline in the world. Agreeing to her mother's commands she agreed to meet with the rest of her sisters so she could introduce us all to her new Concubine.

Dilara was following Sah Sultan in the gardens. All the Sultans family was there. As they approached the Valide Sultan, she bowed deeply

"Sultanim, it's really an honour to meet you.."

Her voice was shaking. She knew that she was the mother of Suleyman the Magnificent. The most powerful woman in the Ottoman Empire

The Valide rose from her seat and took the young Hatun's hands in hers, raising her from where she currently curtsied. Not all concubines were as submissive as Dilara some fought back, which in the long run only made it harder on themselves.

You are very welcome among us Hatun... Why don't you sit yourself behind Sah and tell us where you are from. Have you been here long in the harem, our paths have not yet crossed until now. I guess Sumbul and Nigar are doing a good job in educating you girls a concubine is meant to be seen and not heard.

Dilara smiled, surprised that the Valide stood up and welcomed her so warmly. She sat behind Sah Sultan as she suggested

"I come from Albania, Sultanim. I feel honoured of being here and serving your daughter. Harem is a nice place, and Sumbul and Nigar are taking care of my education. I just hope you'll never complain about me, Sultanim.."

She added lowering her eyes

She was very pleased at how well mannered and eager to please her new lady in waiting was. And hoped that they would be great friends like Hatice was with her lady in waiting.

Two guards entered the garden, and one of them shouted

"Destur! Sultan Süleyman Han Hazretleri!"

Suleyman walked in the garden and kissed his mother's hand before sitting on the large sofa

Validem..

He said while bringing her hand at his lips and his forehead with devotion. Then he smiled at his sisters. He noticed a new lady among them and glanced fastly at her

Dilara noticed that her Sultana Sah was proud of her and she smiled. As she heard the Sultan being announced, she curtsed and lowered her eyes immediately. She remained silent, waiting for him to give them permission to stand from curtsy. Her legs were shaking a bit. She never has been in front of the Sultan himself before

Hunkarim, Sah addressed her brother as she noticed that he took an interest in her new lady. Brother this is our newest member of the Harem and my new personal lady in waiting.

Sah turned her glance to Dilara who was obediently curtsying in his presence. Meet Dilara Hatun, who originates from Albania

Suleyman smiled at Sah and turned his glance towards the new lady. He looked carefully at her

I'm glad that you're at my sister's service, Dilara Hatun. You come from the same place of my Haseki, Mahidevran Sultan. Welcome at Topkapi Palace..

He said while smiling at her

Dilara lowered her eyes as she felt Sultan's glance on her. She smiled weakly while replying

"Thank you, Hunkarim. I'm happy to be here and to serve your sister. Sah Sultan is very good and gentle to me.."

She blushed a bit while pronouncing these words

I'm happy you're so well served. But what about you, kardeşim? How are things with your husband?

He asked, knowing that she was not happy in her marriage

She wasn't naive she knew that most people knew about her unhappiness within the marriage she was in. When did any of her siblings actually have happy marriages. They didn't. For some time now she had actually been meaning to talk to her brother about it the only thing keeping her from doing so was knowing that he had greater burdens to think about. Other than a sister complaining about her "unhappy" marriage.

My husband is my husband unlike the wind he will never change. She simply said her fingers fiddling with a piece of fabric.

Actually, I miss my daughter so much. I was more happy when she was here with me.

Suleyman nodded after listening her words

I see. I miss Esmahan too, dear sister. Hope she will reach us soon. And you were happier with her at your side, indeed. About your husband..we can talk later, and privately..

He added, meaning that he could grant her a divorce, if she wished to break such unhappy marriage with Lufti Pasha
