"Some are not so different from yours. Catholicism has adopted some of our traditions. For my family there is Samhain...which is like your Halloween and then our weddings are much more fun - there is less prayer and more dancing and wine,"I smiled thinking of home.

Margaret giggled "Oh really? It sounds funny.." She paused and she lowered a bit her voice "And..what about wedding night? I mean..have sweden girls be virgin to find a good husband. Or..is this not important in your culture?" She asked finally

"It's not as forced as it is here. The more well off you are, the more it's expected. If you were a noble then it would be better to be untouched but most of us aren't particularly concerned about being 'de-flowered',"I replied with a smile.

Margaret shrugged a bit "Really? Here..ladies take care of their virtue before marriage. But I admit that some of them don't care about having a ring at their finger to sleep with a man.." She smiled weakly "Personally..I wanted to give my innocence to my first husband, during our wedding night. Things didn't work between us. But I don't regret it.." She sighed deeply and suddenly her wedding night with Cesare in Genoa came in her mind

I glanced to her,"To me there is nothing to give. Virginity...it's just something men and those in power impose on us. If women lose it then we are of less worth - for me that is unjust. To give love and receive love is a true bond, not giving man power over you  to remove innocence."

I smiled thinking of my previous loves with no bitterness.

Margaret sighed "Yes..some men like having power on us. Or at least..they like to think that. Oh but in my brief experience I never allowed a man to control my life. Love is a gift. And we should be loved, not used.." She replied, talking more to herself than to her

I nodded thoughtful, although I wasn't so convinced. She had already been married once and yet seems more naive than me...there must be more to her situation than meets the eye.

Margaret noticed her silence "What are you thinking about, Gwen? Is there..a man in your life right now?" She asked, hoping not to be intrusive. But she looked like she didn't love talking too much about herself

"By man I suppose you mean a lover ... or suitor. No neither,"I said with a smile,"I'm perfectly content with that. I'm in correspondence with a man I was once with and it's lovely."

Margaret smiled, intrigued by her words "Oh..a correspondence. How lovely. Do you mean..that you were lovers once and now you're simply good friends? Do you think this is possible? I mean..I still find so hard to be friend with my ex husband.." She smiled rolling her eyes

I laughed,"How could it not be? I've only been with two men and I'm friends with both. The first lives at home and the second was only visiting England - he was Swedish and entirely lovely."

Margaret smiled, still surprised "Oh really? I almost envy you, Gwen. It's not an easy thing to do. I don't believe in friendship after love. Especially with my ex husband. You know..there was a strong passion between us. But now..he hates me, I guess.." She shrugged sighing deeply

"Well there is a thin line between love and hate. I also think both me and these men...well we both knew it would not result in marriage and children - it was rather hedonistic and only for the joy of the moment and we were friends before too so that remained. There was never any bitter spilt...might I ask what happened with your husband?"

Margaret took a deep breath. She shrugged again shooking her head "It's a really long story. He..he is my Mistress's brother. I thought he loved me when he married me. But..I was wrong. He cheated on me all time. His mistresses ruined our marriage. So..one day he left me suddenly. While I was with child. And I lost the baby.." She paused. She was in pain every time she had to tell to someone what's happened. But she tried to smile "But this is the past. And I'm trying to forget it.."

"I am so sorry,"I said genuinely and laid a supportive hand on her shoulder,"What a callous man."

Margaret nodded and she sighed again "Thank you. Now I'm trying to move on with my new husband. I..I want that this marriage works. But that's not easy if he is still around me.." She thought suddenly at their kiss in the forest. But she tried to remove this thought smiling warmly "I guess a nurse can do anything against love pains, right?"

I tilted my head whilst laughing softly,"I'm afraid there is no potion nor Pagan spell to eliminate the pains of love. You seem to have encountered such misfortune, it makes me feel very lucky for all the gifts I have been given in my life."

Margaret giggled softly and she shrugged again "Oh and that's not all. I have been in the Tower, charged of murder. And..honestly, I had to kill a man, once. He tried to rape me. So the King gave me back my freedom cause it was self defence. After few days I met my current husband.." She added like it was a normal thing

My eyes widened and I couldn't help but laugh. Part of me could not believe this woman killed a man...but I was intrigued.

"Remind me never to get on your wrong side,"I said jokingly.

Margaret laughed with her shooking her head "Oh no..it was no intentional. I..I hit him with a stone. Oh but I am not an aggressive person. Even if my ex husband likes to draw me around court like a devil.." She rolled her eyes

"I doubt you are the devil. Your first husband sounds like a strange man...whatever attracted you to him initially?"I queried.

Margaret thought for a while before taking a deep breath "Oh..what can I say? Everything, I guess. He is..very handsome. And I was untouched when I met him. I tried to resist him. But..I admit I desired to be his.." She paused and she smiled warmly "But after he got tired of me, I moved on. I don't like crowded marriages.."

Margaret smiled weakly this time "Oh..actually, we argued during our wedding night. So..our marriage is not consummated yet. But..I am sure that he just needs time. We'll solve it and he will come back to me.." She said hopefully

I wondered why she was so willing to discuss the intimate details of her marriage. Is she lonely? I sighed a little, wishing I could give her life some excitement. I should feel terribly sad if I was married so young.

I joked with a wink,"Perhaps we must find you secret lover then."
