Although it did not feel like Christmas Elena was determined to make the true queen. Lots of changes had happened the ladies in waitings were deduced as where the money and servants. Alas, this was not a time to dwell in sadness rather to be happy even if a little happiness was hard to find. Seeking the help of a few local men Elena paid what little money she had in securing a tree to decorate with candles even if they were sparse. From the woods, she collected holly, ivy and berries to make a wreath to brighten up the gloomiest of rooms.

Walking into the room I see that my most trusted lady had decorated a tree and had made the room more alive then it has been in recent months.
Times were hard now since The king my dearest husband had reduce my money and ladies, my health was frail and my only company was Lady Elena whom I trusted. I take a seat next to the fireplace and gaze at the tree and remember Christmas's that had past with my beautiful Mary dressed in her finest.
I let out a sigh and a single tear rolls down my pale cheek.

Juana had gone to see her cousin, the Queen of England and she went to Katherine and hugged her majesty, Juana was with child and her first child at that, she had married the King of Camelot "cousin" she spoke "merry christmas" she spoke and Arthur her husband arrived with her "this is my husband, Arthur. we have come to bring you a gift" she spoke and smiled soon giving the Queen fine furs to keep her majesty warm "I thought it may help with the winters cold," she spoke kindly and she had a chest of gold sent in "and some gold to help with your expenses, I would like to help your majesty" she spoke kindly to her cousin looking lovingly at her.

"My husband is most kind, I have learned to love him"

She told the Queen and turned to Arthur Pendragon her husband and took his hand in her own as he smiled at the Queen as well. "I am now with child, his child" she confessed as she carried her unborn child within her womb.

I rise from my chair and smile kindly at my dearest cousin as she hugs me. Merry Christmas to you and may the good lord bless you both whilst you are with child
I look to Arthur and bow my head Your Majesty, you are both welcome into my home, it may not be much but I am happy because I know the good lord watches over me.
I take a sit and wave my hand in kindness for them to sit also, Juana brings over the most beautiful furs and lays them on my lap, I move my fingers up and down the furs feeling the softness. You are most kind Cousin and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Juana looked at her cousin and smiled happily at her "I do love you cousin and would do anything to help you" she told the Queen "I am pleased that you like the gifts I have brought to you," she spoke taking her hand in her own and smiled "Arthur and I have decided that if I bare a son he too shall be named Arthur" she spoke as her husband held her nearest to him. "they speak they are certain I may have a son, he kicks so strongly inside me"

"it is good to see you again cousin"

A worried look appears on my face. But how was you able to see me, I have not had anyone visit due to the kings demands that no one is to visit me. I worry for my cousin and her family.
Arthur that name will be perfect for a little prince.I hold her hand and look into her eyes Treasure him Juana, I wish that I had birthed the king a son an heir just like his father but it was not to be and this is my fate now.

Juana of Aragon looked at her cousin seeing her with worry in her eyes "As I always find a way" she spoke "Micheletto has been in my service and I've found a way with his majesty my husband to sneak in" she confessed quietly "I've found a hidden passageway your majesty" she told her "it is a way but I may visit often. and when my son is born I would like you to see him even if I must bring him to you" she told her cousin "dearest cousin you have tried your best, but it is not your fault" she spoke knowing her cousin pained inside for him children she lost "if you allow me, I would like you to godparent my children whichever I may have"

looking at her "the King would not dare touch me, or have me harmed" she spoke "The King is in need of my friendship and that of Camelot at his side. without Arthur and I he would suffer immensely" she spoke "Dearest cousin, I have tried to urge his majesty to return to you, although he would not listen he does insist Naples and Taranto to be his ally" she spoke once more "but as Naples is in my hands he has much to do to earn my friendship especially after all the shame he put our family through" she spoke "my grandfather is most anguished for what the king had done to you, he would place his majesty at his table himself" she spoke speaking of the table many feared of in Naples "If his majesty does not keep his promise my kingdom would have no choice but to strike" she spoke with such honesty "although peace is better then war"

I look to my cousin, a proud feeling swelled in my heart for in her I could see her father in her eyes.
Just promise me you will keep safe and that little one that grows inside of you.
I gasp with the news of being a godparent. Dearest cousin this news has touched my heart and I would be honored to be your child's godparent.
I look down and then look slowly back to Juana. But if anything should ever happen to me please ask my beloved daughter Mary to take my place, she would be such a good role model and her love of music is loved by all that hear it.
I smile as I touch the locket around my neck, inside was a picture of Mary that I look upon whenever I felt sad.

Juana of Aragon looked at the Queen and smiled at her dear cousin "I promise, I will do what I can to see the safety secured for that of myself and my family" she spoke looking at her cousin promising this to her "your daughter must beautiful" she commented and smiled "Your majesty I do accept, and with good will I will assist in any needs you may have" she spoke "a doctor I will lend my finest doctor most skilled to be at your side, I will send a priest as well, one of the true faith" she told her cousin gently taking her hand.

"and if you wish it, I may bring a letter to the Lady Mary your daughter. I will do so for you" she offered kindly.

As I look at Juana I see a little of what I once was but inside I was slowly fading, but still I held on hope that the King would bring me back into his good graces and allow me to see her just one more time.
" She is indeed more beautiful then any jewel that I had ever held in my procession."
Smiling warmly as she takes my now frail hand. " I'm afraid I do not have the strength to write such a letter but if you may aid me then I would be most grateful for a letter to reach my Mary."

Juana looked at the women in front of her and smiled at her dear cousin listening to her speak of her daughter Mary the Princess of England who was her cousin as well, she sat upon the chair beside her and looked at her growing belly "I treasure this child inside me very much as well, I hope I may be a mother just as good as you are to your own child, I am although nervous cousin very much, this is my first child, my first born and I've not been a mother before." she spoke calmly but hoped she will be a good mother to the little prince she bare inside her womb and when the Queen spoke how she would appreciate the assistance of a letter written to the Lady Mary, Juana smiled kindly "I would be quite very happy to help and assist your majesty, what would you have me do" she spoke and rises from her seat, she went and found a fresh parchment of paper and a quill and began to assist the Queen with the letter "What would you like to write" she asked and smiled at her kindly having the parchment upon a table near her majesty and herself,

"I am certain you have much love and kindness to write your daughter," she commented and took the Queen's hand in her own to assist her with writing the words needed to say to the Princess herself.

With a warm smile I lay my hand upon hers " You will make a wonderful mother and our most gracious lord will watch over and protect you and your child."
I take the quill and dip it into the ink, with a shaky hand I scratch upon the parchment. " Dearest Mary, I wish to know how you are. "
Looking to Juana with saddened eyes. " Please could you assist me with the rest."
Sitting back in the chair I start to cough as I hold my handkerchief to my mouth to cover the noise, I take a short breath after some time coughing.
" Please forgive me your majesty this cough seams to hang over me for quite some time now."
