I take a stroll in the woods all bundled up in a fur coat that Papa had Broughton for me before I left home. Winter was my favorite season of the year because that is when the woods looked beautiful.

Having completed his duties in England, Louis had set sail home to France. Before leaving, he had sent word to his family; informing them he would return for Christmas-tide, yet there was no way of being sure they received it until he arrived at his manor.

The sail homeward had been choppy, the waters frothing and fizzing-dark and murky. Upon arrival, Louis was met with a land however descended into a quiet hush. Marseille was swallowed by the freshly fallen snow, the people wrapped up indoors-their candlelit homes like flickering fairy lights.

The steady trudge of the carriage was the only noise through the village and then the woods before his manor. He could only laugh at the irony of the weather. He had spent his time in England complaining about the cold and now he wore more furs and sables than he had in England.

He looked out the window and noticed a young woman wandering through the forest. He popped his head out of the window, "Bonjour, mademoiselle! Do you require a ride home?''

I suddenly hear a voice and turn around to see a fine looking carriage behind me. The voice belonged to a gentleman who's head is out the window "Non merci. Tis a beautiful day for a stroll in Winter. Besides, it could storm on the morrow" I smile as I notice a beautiful looking horse rummaging in my coat pocket for something to eat "Care to join me, Monsieur?

Louis smiled and knocked on the roof of the carriage and it churned steadily to a halt. He noticed the fair of her hair, brightness of eyes-his chest felt warm. He shrugged his shoulders and adjusted his cloak, with a grin-he said "How could I refuse?."

He emerged from the carriage and landed on the powdery snow with a 'crunch'.

"Please go ahead," he told the carriage driver, "Je marcherai la maison."

"You'll be lucky to make such a good decision when the storm hits." I smile as he gets out of the carriage "est-il present?"

He smiled bowed his head,"I'm Louis."

He began to walk beside her and slid his hands into his pockets, "The sea is angry, I should hope it clears soon. I have only just arrived home today."

"Juliette." I said as I did a little curtsy "May I ask where you traveled to?"

"England. I spent all my time complaining about their cold weather and now I come home to snow!" he chuckled.

"I have not seen you here before..do you live in Marseille or are you home for this Christmas?"

"I serve the Queen most of the time" I smile as I catch a snowflake on my tongue "I live around here.In the countryside, in fact. Are you also from around here?"

He shook his head with a relaxed smile, "Ah then I shall perhaps see you when next I vista court. I was born in Paris, near the palace and grew up there. Although I recently became ambassador," he said with a proud grin,"...and I bought my estate here. It is nice to be near to the sea."

"What is England like?" I turn to him as the curiosity grows inside me "My Papa told me many things when I was a girl."

He chuckled, "Cold! But very beautiful. Such vast stretches of land, babbling brooks and wild horses roaming free. As for the court-it is a magnificent place."

"England does sound beautiful." The image of wild stallions roaming free bring a wide smile to my face "I often dream of going to England."

Louis nodded with a slight smile, "You should. They do love the French in England-especially filles jolies françaises."

I tuck a stray strand of hair behind my ear as I try not to blush "Have you met the King of England? Queen Claude has told us ladies that he has divorced a Spanish Queen and he has eyes set on a Lady named Anne."

"Yes indeed, I met with him when I was in England. A rather...ostentatious prince, although; to have his wealth-so should I be. He and his lady shall be coming to France soon, perhaps you'll meet Anne Boleyn. Some say she is more French than English," Louis said and crunched through the snow, regarding the bare trees around.

"I can't wait to meet them both. " The snow starts to fall lightly from the sky as I put the hood up from my fur coat "I hear that Lady Anne was a Maid of honor to the Queen for some years."

Louis nodded with a slight chuckle and wrapped his cloak tighter around his person, running his hand through the dark tendrils of his hair.

"Oui, I believe so, mademoiselle. It has been said that she grew friendly with the Princess Marguerite."

As they walked on he noticed the rooftops of his home on the horizon, mon sanctuarire. He pointed ahead, inclining to Juliette, "That's my home there. You are welcome to take rest from the elements if you so desire."

I could see the rooftop of his manor "I suppose I could stay for a moment." I could feel the bumps appear on my skin as the air started to get a little colder

Louis nodded, his hand resting near the small of her back as he guided her down a little path to his home. He grinned like a small child, "Ma maison," he said proudly.

"I'm sure the fire will be burning already," he said as they approached the main entrance.

Catherine on her horse with her ladies and one guard riding threw some woods. Catherine looked around at all the trees and flowers.

Louis ventured out for a ride after rising early. The morning was bright, the ground clean with frost. He had covered his horse in a blue velvet coat, beneath the supple leather saddle. The dark beast neighed with delight at the prospect of going for a ride.

Starting slowly at first, Louis rode steadily from home until he reached the vast expanse of the woods. He nearly bade his horse ride on until he saw a fellow rider on horse back. Je espère qu'ils ne chassent pas sur ma terre.

He trot forward and then noticed the rider was a lady of the most delicate features and warm countenance, "Bonjour, mademoiselle."

Her guard dismounted and stood in front of Catherine. Catherine smiled at the seen. "Bonjour Monsieur je suis Catherine Vasa."She said to the man on the horse as her guard just stood there with a Swedish outfit on.

Louis rode around her personal guard inspecting the man of average stature and passing a cursory glance to the other lady.

He eventually dismounted his horse and smiled, brushing down his jerkin he noticed the unusual tone in her accent, "A true pleasure. Louis Castillon."
