"Elizabeth Black,"she replied and out stretched her arm to shake her hand.

She paused and hesitantly added,"My lady, I hope I am not too forward but...are you a relative of mine? It's you look so...familiar."

I had a comfortable and safe journey back to England. On the way home my thoughts were filled with the words that Sir Thomas had told me before we were interrupted. I had no time to think about anything else. I had arrange to meet him here but under the false pretence that we were enemies. Although we were not as he had informed me with a great secret. I walked through the long shelves of books picking one up, opening it with my back against the shelf. A simple pretence to make it look like I was reading.

Thomas was told that lady Katherina Prue was waiting for him in the Library. As he entered, he came closer and smiled warmly

Lady Cranmer..I'm delighted to see you. We had a very good time together in Scotland. And thank you for meeting me here. I love books. I shall give a copy of my "Uthopia" as gift..

He kissed her hand gently

Ohh! Talking about gifts..I never forgot what I promised you in Scotland. And I always keep my promises. Boy, come in..

He ordered to a servant to enter. The boy joined the library bringing a little dog in his arms. Thomas smiled

Just..a little thought. Hope you like it..

I was glad to see Thomas in such high spirits. That we did and I was hoping we could continue our conversation. I had never read his works of literary before. But the work of his book Uthopia was known so I graciously smiled. I would love to read such works of yours. I did hear that you had started a book about King Richard III how is that coming along. As the servant walked in I immediately fell in love with this fury creature. He is perfect and as white as snow. I gladly took my new dog of the servant trying to conjure a name up for him.

Thomas smiled seeing that she liked his gift. He dismissed the servant and looked at her

I'm happy you like it, my lady. I'm sure you will take care of this little, lovely creature with much love. Oh...yes. You mean my treaty about Richard III. It's almost finished. I guess...I'll finish it soon, since I'll have more free time, since now..

He added with a weak smile, referring to his resignation as Chancellor

I am glad to hear that it is nearly finished. I won't hesitate in saying are you sure that you are making the right decision? I asked concerned. This was a big move to make maybe the king would refuse his dismissal. I shall be sad not to see you at court. I don't know that many people hear apart from Geoffrey.

Thomas tried to smile and shrugged a bit

I have no choice, my lady. I love the King. And I will be his devoted subject until my dying day. But..I can't serve him as Chancellor anymore, accepting his new religious politic. Ohh...I'm sorry. I shuldn't even talk with you about that. Because of..your husband. But whatever happens, I promise I shall remain your friend. You are..much more better than I thought..

He admitted with a warm smile, this time. His life was going to change, and he needed more friends around him

I gave a sympathetic glance. Unlike other men he was handling this very well. It is ok Thomas. I can keep secrets and it is of no ones business what we talk of. This is like you are making a way to a much peaceful path in your life. I wondered if he would stay at court once he had resigned.

Thomas nodded

Indeed, my lady. My wife and my daughter are very worried about my decision. I served loyalty the King for years. But...I think I deserve some rest. I'll spend time with my family and I'll pray for my King every day. Maybe..I shall leave court. But I'm not sure about that, yet..

He said smiling weakly. He hoped that in that case they could still keep in contact with each other

This is sad to hear where do you reside when you at not at court. I tried to change the subject. If Thomas More was thinking of leaving court what would people say. Not like their opinion mattered. When someone, like Thomas had been at court his whole life his presence shall sorely be missed.

Usually I live in the country. Among nature and my animals. But I'll surely write to you. Hope you'll come to visit me, sometimes..

He said with a warmer and hopeful smile, this time

I had never seen the English countryside yet. But it would be nice to visit especially when my husband was busy. I will visit you it I see it as a lovely break from court. I hope that you have the support of your family on this matter. Now is really an important time to surround yourself with those you trust. I rubbed my new puppy ears, I had yet to think of a name for him. But I would certainly keep him safe with me at all times.

I had wondered if this would be our last meeting before he left court. You can't leave just yet, we have yet to name this little man. I gestured towards the dog I held in my arms. Who was as pure as white as snow.

Thomas laughed silently. He caressed the little dog in his arms

Oh well..I'm not good in choosing pet's names, my lady. But...who told you that it's a...man?

He asked with a gentle smile on his lips and looking meaningfully at her

I looked away shyly. Sorry I thought that you said it was a boy. Whilst Thomas was still holding my unsexed puppy I ran my fingers gently through it's hair. I'll start that again do you know what the sex of my puppy is. I raised my eyebrow with some amusement.

Thomas smiled indulgently, placing the soft pet into her arms slowly

Don't wory, my lady. That's not easy to find out pets's sex if you're not an expert. In any case...you're holding a she dog. So I think you will be more good than me in finding a suitable name for her..

He said caressing it and looking at her face. Judging by her blushing, he had to admit that she was really a nice and virtous girl, in spite of she was already married

Idly, I took my dog into my arms and placed a small kiss on his cheek. I like the name Sabine. It is not really a common name here in England. You know the court won't be that nice without you here. When people find out who I am they shall surely cast judgement. I wished my friendship with Thomas had started a little earlier on when he wasn't preparing to leave court.

Sabine..I like it. I'm sure you'll take perfectly care of her. Oh and don't worry. Even if I'll leave court..we'll continue to keep in touch, lady Katherina. And of course I'll be back to celebrate Christmas..

He added, noticing a bit of sadness into her eyes

Please just call me Katherina we have already told each other more information than we would our friends. Christmas was a long way a way. In Thomas I found an intellectual friend who actually valued the opinion of women. What is your wife like I have never met her.

Thomas smiled, nodding after her words

You're right. Yes..we're now friends. And I just hope that your husband is not bothered by that. I would be..bery sorry for creating drama in your marriage. My wife is fine, Katherina, thank you. She is a carying and intelligent woman. I love her deeply, and she is the ideal companion of my life..

He took a breath with an amused smile

Just..I think she deserves a pet too. You know, I'm giving pets to half court and she could be jealous..

Such nonsense we don't do drama we are to grown up for that. I blinked a couple of times as he mentioned his wife wondering if she was anything like the first. Does she love dogs? I am curious as to where you are getting these animals from.

Yes...she does. But she prefers cats most. I don't know why..but in the country I have a little farmer. I grew up among animals since I was a kid. Hope your husband won't be bothered if you'll visit me, sometimes..

He said showing her a friendly smile

What a lovely place it reminded me of the little villages back in Bavaria. You would of made a great farmer back in Bavaria. Cats are good at catching mice but they never stay at your side for to long they stray. Their was a little connection nothing sordid but a connection between us both. Maybe it was something only I could feel. He will be very busy what with Cromwell needing him at every waking moment. I can visit you whenever he is busy not to share our bedchamber.

Bavaria must be a nice place...but I think I'll stay in England. You know...especially for my children. And wherever I'll be...you'll be very welcome, Katherina. It would be a true pleasure for me and my family..

He said truly smiling at her
