PostSubject: Pathway Near The River Thames   Sat Mar 10, 2012 10:46 pm

I take a stroll by the River Thames enjoying the fine day. The faint smell of the new blossom on the trees fill my senses and leave a lasting scent. I walk under the rays of sun, avoiding the shade, enjoying it warm rays. It pours down around me blessing me with it's warmth and light.

I take a seat under a willow tree and look absent mindedly at the River Thames...

After visiting with my sisters I decided to take a walk by the river Thames. I walked with much on my mind, trying to free myself of the anguish I had felt for Lizzie and her new suitor. I then looked up and saw a woman sitting under a tree. As I walked closer I recognized her. "My lady Craven..." I said as I was positive it was her. "How are you this day?" I was taken by her beauty once again as I was pleased to see her again.

I rest my head on my head as I look out onto the river. It is soothing and the soft noise of the water running by me is calming. I smile warmly but I hear footsteps near me. I glance up and notice someone but it is not until they speak to me that I truly realise who they are.

I recognised the deep, soothing tone. The silk voice and as I look into his eyes I immediately know who he is. Thomas Seymour.
I smile wider and smooth down my dress, as I look into his deep blue eyes that seem to bore into mine.

"My Lord Seymour,"I say softly as I smile,"I am well this day now we have once again met. How are you?"

I stand and walk a closer. I curtsy a little and then stand by him.

Her beauty stops me, and as she speaks I must of been a fool to dismiss her. "I am well my lady, although I find myself astonished at you beauty and yet fate has brought us together again." I say as I kiss her hand.

I smile softly and look down as he kisses my hand. I feel my heart flutter a little as he looks at me, my cheeks flush with a glow as I begin to blush,"You flatter, My Lord...I am glad fate has brought us together once more."

Her smile captures me, as I gaze into her eyes for a moment and notice how attracted I was to her. "Indeed, it seems the fates wish us to find one another again." I then looked at her beautiful face and smiled, "Tell me how have you been, life treating you well?"

As his eyes look into mine I glance down. I feel utterly at ease, at home however his handsome looks which do attract to me him cause my heart to beat faster. His perfectly placed features and his eyes, his perfect blue eyes that seem to see my soul. I wonder if his wise eyes recognise and see my increasing affections for him. I look up again and smile,"Would you care to walk with me, Sir Thomas?"

I take his arm gently and hold it beside mine, I look up and smile a little,"Life has been treating me well and clearly kindly since it has brought you to me. I find it a little plain though I must confess-I seek a little adventure!"

I laugh warmly and stand a little closer to him unconsciously...

This beauty and femininity that I found so wonderful about this woman, had clearly spoke through her magnificent eyes. She was one that I could never forget. "'Yes a walk would be wonderful" I said as I took her arm and walked along the pathway.

The sound of the river was so soothing, I felt comfort in walking with her. "My lady, I must confess that since we parted ways, I have thought much of you. Your not easily forgotten."

I look up and smile kindly at his words, a little caught off guard by his eyes. His gaze is kind and warm but there is a depth and strength that lurks too,"I should hope you only remember me for good reasons,"

I chuckle softly.

I then add, sort of a mumble,"I too must confess that you are not so easily forgotten either my lord."

I walk along the pathway of The River Thames, i look around at my surroundings and cough into my tissue then put it up my sleeve, and clutch my hands together as i walk under a near by tree, and sit down and take in the sight around me.

I glance up as I hear a rustle from behind us, it is so quiet here and the only noise is the steady passing of river, so I hold Thomas' arm a little closer. I turn my head and my hair spills over my shoulder like a golden waterfall, sparkling under the spring sunshine. I look around us and see a woman sit under the tree where I sat, the shade from the new leaves on the branches hid her delicate features but I can still recognise her to be The Princess Margaret. I sweep a small curtsey and then continue to walk with Thomas.

The castle seems so distant and far away from here, like another world. The safety of having Thomas by me makes me never want to go back to the castle. His high cheekbones and strong jaw line are softened by his light brown hair that sits just on his forehead and his warm smile.

I clear my throat and look down as I speak-not quite sure how he will reply,"Sir Thomas...I enjoy very much meeting with you,"I pause and tuck a golden curl behind me ear, I glance up at him through my dark lashes and continue,"I should like if we may meet more,"I smile but quickly add,"Only if that is your wish."

I can feel the warmth of his arm through the slashed fabric of his sleeve. I have to stop myself leaning towards him...

As we walked along the pathway by the river, I suddenly became a nervous. The lady Craven had differently caused me to feel like I could smile and mean it.
I notice the Princess Margaret sitting under a tree, I bow my head as we continue along. "My lady, I to wish to see you more often." I then smiled at her as I wanted to know more about her.

The lavender is coming into flower and I can smell the sweet scent, sweet as orange blossoms, sharp as lemons. I smile under the sun which is warmer for spring-it could be early summer. However the only warmth and glow is from him.
I look at the softness of his hair that curls at the nape of his neck. His hair smells faintly of spices, and the skin of his neck smells clean. I spot a pretty oak tree not far from where we are and glance up at him.

His lips deliciously close to mine I have to glance down again for fear I may suddenly press my lips onto his,"Perhaps we could sit neath that tree,"I say softly and sneak once last glance at his eyes.

The setting of this day was almost perfect. I saw her glance at me as she spoke. I looked over at the tree, "That sounds wonderful." I said as we approached the tree. The soft ground beneath it was a bit muddy so I laid my over coat down for her to sit on. "I heard your brother married the lady Alfosina? Have you yet been to Spain?" I asked showing her I was interested in her family as well as her.

I give him a grateful look as he lays out his cloak on. I sit on the edge of his cape, my knees drawn up, my arms wrapped around them, my fine silk gown draped around me,"Oh yes. It seems like so long ago and she is now with child."

I glance to him to reply but I find myself stunned once more. His light brown hair, grey eyes, fair skin, open, smiling face, rich with charm, easy with grace. And his eyes are fixed on my face as if I know a secret that he has to have, as if we have known each other forever, and I can feel my cheeks burning but now I cannot look away from him,"No...No I have not but I'd live to someday travel. I fear I have not strayed far from my home. What of you...I am sure you are well travelled..."

As she sits down so gracefully upon my cloak, I watch her and how her basic femininity speaks to me. I sit down next her and listen to her speak. "Well you must happy to become an aunt." I said smiling widely. I then admire every aspect of her, she has captured me since the day we first met. "I have done some traveling, to Germany and Spain although I would not see it as much as an adventure when it's mostly business. Perhaps you and I could travel somewhere exotic just for the adventure." I say as this time I would not let her out of my grasp.

"Well my eldest brother already has a child...but I see him rarely. He lives in Kent a few miles from my family manor with his wife and son...they aren't so fond of courtly life,
"I sigh a little, my head tilted to the side and my golden hair spills down my shoulder like a waterfall of honey. I do miss my home in Kent;the endless fields, my favourite oak tree that stretches high to my bedroom window...
I smile softly remembering how in the summer months I would climb from my window, to the tree and spend hours walking in the country at sunset.

I sigh dreamily, not realising that I know lean a little closer to Thomas. I flush at his final words and glance up,"I should like that,"I can only whisper.

I watch her as speaks so fondly of her home and of her family. I cannot help but think of spending more time with her. "Well my lady, where would you like travel? There are many places that we could venture to." I say as i take her hand and kiss it.
