Emilie smile happily while looking at Olympe throwing piece of breads to the swans with her little hands, shouting with joy and slight apprehension when they get closer to her, near to the shore.
She turn to Mary and answer her;

The most important is that we are here together now and that Olympe is joyful of it.

Emilie giggle as Mary thank her.

You hadn't to thank me, it's thank to you that we are here !, my dear.

Emilie get nostaligique in recalling of last summer at Eastnor with her daughter and some pupils who had remain there while holdidays, spending most of her afternoon near to the lake, swimming in it.

Emilie smile in looking at Olympe feeding the swans, hearing her joyful giggles when they come closer to the shore for catch the little pieces of bread that she throw to them clumsily.
Emilie feel getting a bit nostalgic as Mary evocate Eastnor, she nodd.

Yes, I do miss Eastnor often, but, even if I had decide to come back there earlier, I don't succed in living the court ! there is so many friends like you with whom I feel the envy to spend some time ... and Hampton court is a wonderful palace too, isn't it ?

She take a dreamy air in thinking to her castle, recalling of the rooms and exterior areas that she prefer.

Eastnor is even more beautiful that you can imagine, for me it's better place in earth, the castle itself is very beautiful, in perfect state and vaste, it's really agreable to live in there and the domain is immense, there is a beautiful garden, a lake, a forest and many meadows ... And above all it's my own household, it's where my daughter is born, and also where I have found my school, so it's a very special place for me and I will surely invite you to come there some day for a journey.

She smile to her in hearing her answer.

Great ! I look forward for it, I am sure that we will have much fun ! What are the activities that you prefer to do while your free time ?

Emilie smile in thinking to her school, recalling of the deputy head teacher's last letter.

Oh very good, I have now enough pupils and the news that I recieve regulary from the deputy head teacher who manage the school in my absence are excellent, all is going well, most of the girls are good girls obediant and studious and the athmosphere is very good, the lessons of music and danse have a lot of success and take place regulary, there is also a good group of theatre that is forming and the library is also very utilised by the students, it's proove their eager for learn.

She reflect, glancing to her daughter as the image of Armand appear in her mind, as it happen all the time lately, then turn again to Mary and answer her.

I looked at swans and sighed, they look so free and happy.Then I looked at Emilie and said.

Emilie smile, feeling glad and proud of having realize successfully this great project.

I must say that I am really very happy to have succed in creating and make work well this school. The girls education is so neglected, even in rich and noble families, those who bring to girls a complete education aren't the majority, trust me. I think a part of the reasons of this problem is that the parents, if they don't hire a private tutor hadn't another alternative than to send their daughter in sinistrous nun's boarding schools where the girls are abused with sadist punishments and in better of the cases they learn to write, read, count, sewing and tell their prayers, it's all. With my school, the parents have one another alternative.

She glance to her daughter with much love in her eyes, happy to see her so joyful as she observe the swans and keep on sending them some pieces of bread, then turn again to Mary.

It's true, it isn't surprising that we get so well together with all the things that we are in common.

She smile touched by her words.

Thank you Mary, you are so kind, I love my little girl so very much and being a good mother for her is very important for me, I could do everything for her.

She hug her sligthy, moved as she evocate her doubts about the mother that she will be for her children.

Oh Mary, of course that you will be a good mother ! I am sure that you will adore your children and be a wonderful mother for them. I guess that you wish to have children since a long time, am I wrong ?

I nodded.

''Most of pepole think that for ladies is enough if they know write, read, count, sewing and tell their prayers while man need to have real education and that is so wrong ladies deserve to have education like man and I am happy that your school to provide them an education that they deserve''

I smiled and said kindly.

''Olympe is very lucky to have a mother like you''

I hugged her back gently.

''I am not sure what kind of mother I would be but I know that I would try my best to make that happy.''

I nodded sadly.

''Yes I wanted the child more that you can imagen,but it seams that God wanted me to wait for much more than I wish''

Emilie nodd, glancing to her daughter, hoping to can bring her the better education possible.

Yes, girls deserve to have a complete education, like boys and I wish that more and more of them will get one and I hope that my school will help to reach this aim.

She smile to her and answer sweetly

It's precisely because you want to have a child since a so long time that I am sure that you will love her or him with all your heart and so that you will awonderful of the mothers. And since you are being in engagement with this scottish duke, you will surely have a child before long !

Her face take a more serious air and she add.

You know most of the woman whom I cross who aren't good mothers, don't seem to really love their children nor want to care of them and I think that they had them without having desire them and to be mother only by duty and obligation.

She look around at the beautiful landscape, her eyes shining with joy as the image of this man whom she love is in her mind all the time since their encounter.

I looked at her.

''Your school are doing great job I wish that we have more schools like yours''

I smiled a little.

''I would like to have child but who know maybe God didn't planned for me to be a mother,look at my sister she don't have child and she is married for very long''

I frowned and said.

''I know and I will never understand how a mother can not love her child.It is very sad but this often happens when they have girls''

Emilie feel sad in thinking to her dear friend Margaret who really isn't lucky at all.

It's true, but your siste probably lack of fertility, she maybe would have fall pregnant if she have made more frequent attempts with her husband but I guess that he musn't have visit her bed very often since while all the times I have go to visit her, and I visit her everyday, I never seen him with her.

She sigh sadly, then shake her head.

[color=violet]But it isn't because your sister have matter of fertility that you do have too ... [/coIlor]

She blush, slighty embarrassed to aboard this topic and fearing to embarrass her.

hope to don't embarrass you in aboarding this topic, but you has been married only once time in the past, with my father and he was very old and gravely ill at this moment of his life and the marriage hadn't last for long, so it isn't surprising that you hadn't fall pregnant and after ... uh ... I guess that as a virtous single lady, you hadn't been in a situation where you could have fall pregnant.

She smile and add on a reassuring tone

So the fact that you hadn't yet fall pregnant don't proove anything ... when you will have marry the duke, you will know about it and I am sure that you will have at last a child and maybe even several children.

She glance to her daughter who gambol on the shore, the air loving and moved.

I really wish it to you, it's wonderful to be a mother ! it's the higher happiness in a woman's life.

I nodded and looked down.

''Yes that is true I am with her almost everyday and I never saw him with her.I know how much she wanted to have child and it is sad that she didn't had possibility to have them...I don't know I think that I am just scared to much the child is only thing that I want more than anything''

I blushed slightly and said.

''As you said I was just married once to your father and he was very ill and the marriage didn't last for very long.After that I wasn't been in a situation where I could have fall pregnant so I think you are right,I just worry to much''

I smiled softly.

''Thank you Emilie and I wish that too''

I asked her kindly.

''Do you want to have more children one day?''

Emilie sigh and nodd.

Yes it's really sad for her, she hadn't children, her husband desert her and in more she is gravely ill, she really isn't lucky.

She glance to her daughter, seeing her throwing some bread to the swans again, then turn again to Mary.

I think that indeed you are feared to don't have children because it's what you want the most ! But don't worry, you are still young and will soon marry, so you will surely have children before long, so don't worry too much !

She smile hearing her question, she nodd.

Yes, I would like to have other children, no as much as you of course since I have yet my beloved daughter but I would like to, if I get married ...

Her face take a dreamy air and she blush slighty, feeling that it's maybe time to tell her about the king of Italy, after all she is a close friend to her and they know each others since her arrival at court.

And, as surprising at it can seem, I could get married before long ... because about the king of Italy, I hadn't tell you everything ... our relationship have turn into love, our love is sincere, his intentions are very serious, and we have projects of future together ...

Her eyes shine with joy as she think to Armand.

Emilie nodd and answer.

I have always think that their was too hasty and that he wouldn't make her happy because their love didn't seem enough strong and deep for marry.

She smile and blush slighty.

I was unsure, but our relationship have evoluate very fastly.

She hug her back, feeling moved and happy .

Thank you, my dear, I am the most happy to have find my soulmate.

Her face take a serious her as she still hardly realize that she will be queen one day.

I am rather nervous at the idea to become a queen, because I hadn't ever been prepared for this such an important place, but it's the greatest of the honour that could ever had happen to me and I will do my best for the grade. Anyway, I will have time for think to it, all the foundation my relationship with the king is to be build for now.

She smile, a dreamy air on her face.

Emilie nodd, a serious air on her face.

Her, yes, she love him but him, does he love her ? openly, I don't think so and I think that she is fully conscious of it and so that she made a mistake in marrying him.

She smile softly in hearing her answer.

I hope so, Mary, indeed the king will help me to get prepared and probably another people will help me, I guess that there is a process ritual for prepare the queens to their position and responsabilities and anyway, as I said, I am at the begining of this relationship, I will have all the time to think about it before to reach this step. What matter for me the most for now, is to build a strong relationship with my soulmate.

Emilie turn to her daughter, feeling happy to see her so joyful and enthousiast.

''Of course there is much time for thinking about it.Yes you need first to build relationship with him and to just enjoy in love with no worry at all''

I looked at Olympe and said.

Emilie nodd, feeling sad for her dear friend Margaret.

It's really a shame, she is a so good woman, she deserved a husband who love her and she would be much happier. This sentimental situation musn't help her to keep good mood with this terrible illness. And him, ... He is a friend to me too but I really think that he don't derserve her at all and is a really bad husband to her, I can't believe that he don't give her any attention since now he must know very well that she is gravely ill, nobody around her can ingore it.

She sigh and shake her head, then she feel happiness come back in her as she think to Armand.

Yes, I want to enjoy the present happiness of the sweet moments that I spend with him, feeling our link get stronger, building the foundations of our relationship and about our projects future, I like to talk about it with him and daydream about it often, but for now it's still far.

She nodd in looking at Olympe, smiling.

Yes indeed, I am happy for her too, I yet talk about her with Armand, he will not try to remplace her real father who will remain her real father, but he will treat her like if she was his own and he is so kind that I am sure that she will love him as a father and be happy to have a paternal figure in her life, a true family and siblings.

Feeling her heart full of joy as she imagine the family life that they will have, she turn again to Mary and ask her.

And what about your own marriage ? did you see again your husband-to-be since the last time ?

I looked down sadly feeling bad for beaing happy while my sister is very ill.

''I don't know how he can be so carless,his support would be very good for her but he don't care about her at all.''

I smiled and said happily.

''Oh Emilie you are so in love with him!What I heard about him from you,I am sure that he would be wonderful father to her and good husband to you.He is relly kind man and I am sure that you both will be happy with him.''

I nodded happily thinking about Royce and our last meeting.I wasn't sure what I feel towards him yet everything was confusing and new to me,but I knew that everytime when I think about him I feel joy in my heart.I sighted deeply and said.

''Yes,he gave me this beautiful ring.''

I showed her the ring,smiling softly.

''Oh Emilie I don't know what my feelings are about him,this all is so confusing and new to me,I was in love once or I was thinking that I am,but I never have feelings like this before to anyone.''
