Walking blissfully alone; I slowly let my mahogany hair fall out of place. I had waited for the windy spring time to begin. With the sun guiding my way and the wind at my back; I headed forth on my walk. I had for some while not seen my dearest closet of friends as far as I knew France wasn't at war. Coming up the little hill I turned looking back at the palace garden coming into bloom. I could sit here for many an hour letting time go by.

On his daily walk to take the fresh air, Christophe saw a familiar figure coming in his direction. Smiling, he advance with agility and took a deep bow before her. "Mademoiselle! I had thought I would not see you again! I hope you remember your sir knight Christophe!"

I wanted to jump out and hug him; but instead I kept myself calm letting only the excitement in my voice be known.

"A gallant knight may I add! How could I ever forget you; why did you miss me."

Christophe was my dearest and only friend here at the French court. I had known him for many years and confided in him my most inner secrets.

"You look very... happy are you happy Christophe."

Though the excitement in her voice hadn't changed, he noticed she held herself like a true lady. She was in control of her emotions, but he knew she had missed him as much as he missed her. He gathered her in his arms and embraced her. "You were greatly missed, mademoiselle. Your effervescent spirit is much needed at court." He thought about her question: was he happy? And he was glad to answer that he was the happiest man in the world.

"The French court has changed it seems. Our you a father yet."

I asked rather cheekily as I walked in front of him. I adored his friendship it kept the sad times at bay. I could tell him things that no other person would dare understand.

"I'm finally turning into a young woman I do miss  gallivanting around; being a free spirit you will never guess whom I had to meet."

I hung my head exasperating a loud sigh as my foot dug into the dirt. It was hard to tell Christophe this and I didn't want to face him as that means facing the truth.

"My lousy father made me meet with Gaston a potential suitor. He was as boring as sin"

He gave a soft chuckle. "I'm not yet a father, but Angelique and I are working on it." He had indeed noticed that Coralie was growing up, but thought it wouldn't be proper to mention such. "Gaston? Do you think your father plans you to marry him?"

I tried to hide my embarrassed face as he told me such intimate details. For the first time I felt jealous and a little protective over him. Maybe it was the fact he had acted like a father to me when I most needed a male figure. Either way I was just a nobody, a common lady in waiting with nothing to give him.

"Yes it seems that Gaston is the man I shall be married to. A lady so young shouldn't be unmarried. I don't want to marry as he might stop our friendship! Men get rather jealous of other men."

"You know I would let nothing get in the way of our friendship, Coralie. You've been like a sister to me. In fact, if Gaston even attempts to rid you of me, I shall hit him on the head with the butt of my sword," he jested.

It was a crisp autumn day, the leaves were golden and red and in the distance my gardener was clearing some leaves.
I take a walk around the grounds with my ladies behind me when a messenger runs up with a message that the lady Cecily More was here, a smile spreads across my face. "Please show the Lady Cecily to our gardens." He nods and runs of to find the Lady Cecily.

    Cecily did not return with the others back to England rather she stayed behind in hopes that she would find herself. Soon she would be married off if the rumors were true the Howard family practically ruled the court at the moment and she didn't want to get caught up in all that. They all sounded like a tiresome family. After taking some morning tea with some french delicacy it was time to meet with the french queen. Your majesty thank you for taking the time to meet with me. Cecily curtsied before the queen; her eyes looking at the lovely winter flowers in the garden.

" Welcome Lady Cecily, I do hope your stay at the French court is to your liking."
I see in front of me a true English beauty, something you rarely see around in our court, I was sure she must have caught the attention of many French nobles.
"Would you care to join me for a walk around my gardens my lady,"

    I would be honored your majesty! Cecily rises up from her curtsy keeping a few feet behind the queen at all times throughout their conversation. The kindness shown from the french queen was natural and put Cecily immediately at ease there even was a trace of her mother, she could see in Claude which brought tears to her eyes. A mothers kindness and love would always be irreplaceable, but it had been so long since Cecily had felt it from someone who truly meant it. Thank you your highness I wasn't very happy in England.

I hear a hint of sadness in Lady Cecily's voice and my mother Instincts in me wanted to comfort her, but I did not want to make her feel uncomfortable.
"May I ask why you was unhappy in England. "
I stop near a bench and wave my hand to gesture if she would like to take a seat. My ladies move quickly and place small satin pillows on the bench for both her and I.

    Talking about her greatest unhappiness would only trouble Cecily more. Like snow trapped in a glass. The comforts of her family life were turned upside down when she was only a child. She sniffed. As if the pollen flowers were affecting her.

    It hasn't felt like home in a long while.

With summer dancing in the air and a small light breeze bringing the smell of the newly opened roses I notice the lady sniff as if the pollen was affecting her.
" Would you rather be inside my lady and maybe we could have some refreshments if you rather."
I nodded my head in understanding as a memory of my home floods my mind.
" You will one day follow your path and it will lead to your home, I truly believe in fate and that good things happen to those that deserve it and I have heard many great things about your family."
