"I shall. Good night, husband." She smiled a little weakly and went back to her chamber.

Thomas smiled lovingly at her

Good night, wife...

He remained at the table thinking deeply for a while. Then tireness overwhelmed him and reached Alice in their bed

Margaret had not seen her friend Thomas More in a while, she has been in France and ruling her home country the Low Lands, but he was appointed Chancellor of England and she wanted to congratulate him. She also liked to meet his wife of whom he often spoke with love.

She knocked on their bedroom door and waited patiently if she could enter.

She answered the door, having let the servants have the day off, and when she saw Margaret she smiled widely, sweeping into a curtsy. "Your Grace, what a pleasant surprise! I did not know you were back in England. Please do come in." She had just tidied up and had placed a bowl of fresh fruit upon the table.

Margaret smiled warmly as Alice opened the door herself, she reached her hand for hers and took it into her both hands, squeezing gently before she let go again.

Dear Alice, thank you for your most hearty welcome. Yes, I came back here only yesterday and it was too late to visit you. I hope I don't disturb you, I just wanted to congratulate you on your husband's appointment as Chancellor.

"Thank you so much!" Alice beamed at her friend. "I am of course very proud of Thomas, though his responsibilities often keep him quite busy indeed."

She smiled warmly and nodded.
I guess he is even more busy than he was accustomed... there are many problems to face. He is lucky to have you dear, so he can relax at times. He is so conscientious. And how are you, you are busy yourself, not only supporting your husband but also managing your family. Is everyone going well?

"Yes, I do keep quite busy," Alice said as she poured some wine for Margaret. "But I like to keep the family going, it energizes me. It gives me a reason to go on." She thought about the difficulties, the doubts she had about their sovereign, and wanted to tell Margaret her innermost worries.

Margaret watched her pouring the wine and nodded slowly.

You have a wonderful family, I imagine they energize you, but I can also imagine that you worry for them at times. She took a pause, looked into her eyes and asked her with care.

So tell me, dear Alice, what do you really think of Thomas new position? I know he did not solicit this, even though he and the king are close friends.

Alice nodded. "Indeed, I worry for them...quite a lot." She sighed as she took her seat. "You see through me, don't you Margaret?" she said with a tired smile. "In truth I like it not. I fear that often Thomas has to put his beliefs before the king's needs, and that could land him in trouble."

Margaret smiled warmly though she felt that Alice was worried for the right reasons.
The king loves your husband very much, Alice. Did he not make him promise that he would always put his love to God first?

She took a sip of wine and looked at her.
I am sure that King Henry will always respect him, even though he may not always agree with him.

"He did, but the king seems to be after only what he wants, not necessarily what he should stand by," she countered, lightly referencing Anne Boleyn. "When someone always gets what he wants, he tends to neglect those matters he should not."

Margaret nodded slowly and turned the goblet in her hand, thoughtfull.
I imagine that it is not an easy task to cope with, especially for your husband whose integrity and loyalty to his country is paramount. I assure you that Thomas has full support though, of my country, of my nephew the Emperor and also of the Pope. They all respect him very much. she paused and looked at Alice.

I heard that Henry proclaimed himself Head of the English Church and defied the Pope. I wonder what will happen next...

"I thank you," she said to Margaret, genuinely honored. "You are most kind. Unfortunately you are right about the  king denouncing and leaving the Church. I believe he will be excommunicated, if he has not been already. He is not the only king in the world, and just because we are an island unto ourselves doesn't mean we follow different rules."

Thomas entered in Alice's room. He hadn't talked with her since a while. And he needed her advice about something

Alice..are you there? I need talking with you...

Hearing her husband at the door, Alice went to answer and greeted him warmly. "Dearest, I'm glad you're here. What do you wish to talk about?" She led him inside and towards the chair before the fire.

Thomas came into room. As he saw Alice he smiled. Then he kissed softly her lips and sat with her next to fireplace

My dear Alice...I missed you. You're the only one who always supported me. And..as you know, our faith in England is living hard times. The King doesn't accept my advices anymore. That's why...I decided to resign. I'm no longer his Chancellor..

He finally said. He took a deep breath. And staring at fireplace, he squeezed softly her hand

"Resign?" Alice repeated, her worried glance focused on him. "What did the king say when you told him this?"

Thomas took a breath turning towards her again. He shook his head

He...he doesn't know that, yet. But I'm sure he will accept my decision. Alice..you know me. You know I can't act against my conscience. Henry made me a promise, once. He promised me that he would never force me doing something against my conscience. And to consider God first, and then him..

He paused and took another breath. His espression was serious, but he tried not to increase her worries

But..everything is changed, now. He even obteined the submission of Clergy. Do you know what this means, Alice? This means...that he has now the absolute power. No one had such a power before. And if even the Church is forced to recognize his authority...what will happen to all of us?

He added whispering almost to himself. He lowered his eyes, still keeping her hand in his

Her eyes widened at the news. For the clergy to submit, Henry would rule over all church matters in England. "How can he even have achieved such a thing without incurring the wrath of the Vatican? He plays God!" She sat in her chair and shook her head. "I wish I could see into the future and relay all our fates, but since we must simply trust in God, we have to cling to our faith. I know you will do this above all else, Thomas my dear," she smiled at him.

Thomas took both her hands in his and kissed them deeply. Then he looked at her

Alice..promise me that you'll take care of my children. If..if something will happen to me. Especially Margaret. She is so scared. And she needs a mother. And I..I can't even imagine a most loving woman to entrust my children than you, Alice..

He said staring into her eyes. He loved her deeply. She was the only woman who brought him back to life after his first wife's death

She looked at him steadily yet lovingly and squeezed his hands in return. "I promise, upon my very soul I promise this, dear."

She sighed deeply as she gazed at her husband. She never loved anyone so much and even the thought of losing him made her anxious. She decided to change the subject. "Have you seen or spoken to Meg lately?"

Thomas nodded slowly smiling at her

Yes, my dear...I have. She looks very worried about my decision to resign. But I reassured her. I also talked with her about her engagement with William Roper. And she is very anxious to meet him..

He caressed her cheek with a soft movement of his hand

Oh and I gave her a pet as gift. That's a little dog. She adores it..
