I nod,"Indeed she is. She is most kind and lovely-I am so very pleased she is my sister now."

I feel at ease now but still feel a little cold as a cool breeze rustles through the tree's again,"I would honoured and pleased if you be so kind as to allow my family to visit,"I tilt my head and smile warmly,"It would make me very happy..."

Well then it is settled. Just as soon as the three of you wish to come for a visit I shall inform my sister as Italy shall welcome you with open arms, and with a grand feast. I see that she is a bit cold as I remove my coat and place it upon her shoulders as I was more than happy to lend it to her as I rather enjoyed the cool air as it was a nice change from the Italian climate. I hope to speak to your new sister soon as I had not seen her since she was a young girl. I am pleased that she is married into a family that is highly regarded as yours. It shall strengthen the ties even more between Italy and England.

I smile as he wraps the heavy cloak around my shoulder, the heat of his body still on the cloak. I hold it gently around me,"Thank you,"I glance down modestly.

"My family are so very lucky to have Alfonsina and to be treated so kindly by both Their Majesties and of course Your Majesty. You are too kind..."

I nod to her when she thanks me for the jacket and smile as well. Yes well your family ultimately deserves the best treatment as it seems they have prove to be most respected by Henry and therefore much respected by me as well. I glance into her face studying her facial features as she is quite a striking woman indeed. So tell me about your brother how did he and your new sister meet?

I smile,"Oh my brother is so kind-so very fond of Alfonsina and in love with her. I believe they met not long after we arrived in court. I arrived with my brother Edward and my elder brother Thomas only comes to court occasionally...he is a barrister so able to stay at home. He also has a wife and child."

He makes me feel very safe however I feel my heart flutter a little-he is handsome. High cheekbones, a strong jaw and piercing mysterious eyes, that would appear to see into the depths of your soul...

Well this is good to hear as Im sure her father would indeed be very proud of her choice in a husband. I do look forward to meeting him as well. I listen to her as a smile comes across her face as she speaks of her family. I do admire the way you speak of your family with quite admiration and affection. I grin at her as her many good qualities continue to impress me as I would like to get to know her even more.

I laugh softly,"I fear I have not asked much of Your Majesty-you must tell me more of your family...of Italy."

I smile and and listen carefully, resting my head on my head as I talk with him-feeling at ease.

Well where do i begin my mother passed on when I was but a teenager, and my father just about a year before now. I have only been king for about half a year. My younger sister's name is Stella and she remains in Italy where she has just recently married. I spent a lot of my teenage years travelling abroad and studying in places such as France and Bovaria. I had a reputation for drinking and starting fights, as well as courting many women. You could say there for quite awhile I was a spoiled young prince. My sister and father both helped me get past this stage as I still have weaknesses as we all do. However after being schooled for the past year I have grown up quite a bit. Italy is beautiful. The food is the best in the world and the people the friendliest.

I listen to his story but frown a little as he mentions his slightly troubled past,"My father passed away this Christmas tide-I can relate to your pain."

I then sigh and smile,"Italy sound's very beautiful and to have such a kind and gracious ruler like Your Majesty I have no doubt that it is exactly how you describe..."

I see her frown when I mention my past however many ladies already know that young princes are usually very promiscous in their youth as I was. I frown as well and place my hand upon her shoulder when she mentions her father passing. I am sorry to hear about your father, but he would be happy to know that his family is still doing so well and has fallen in the favor of not just one king but two kings.

I glance up as I feel his warm touch on my shoulder,"In the favour of you, Your Majesty?"

I whisper softly as I look through my lashes.

I look down and smile a little,"I...I,"I look into his dark eyes and blush. If he were not The King of Italy...perhaps I would behave a little differently in the situation.

"Perhaps I should leave?"

No I am quite interested in you and am quite enjoying our conversation. However it is getting quite late and a little cold here perhaps we could go somewhere else and speak then?

After what seems like an eternity in my chambers going over papers I decide to get some fresh air. I go along with my journal to the gardens where the maize is located. It was interesting to see what this place looked like in the light. I found a bench and sat there opening my journal and writing down my thoughts among other things and enjoying the sounds of the birds as well as the aroma of the flowers.

Emilie take a walk near to the maze with her daughter , enjoying the new softness of the air, she can feel that the spring will arrive before long and is yet preparing.
While walking peacefully, she chat happily with Olympe who bound everywhere joyfully, seeming to be happy to be outside in the beautiful after weeks to remain outside because of the severe weather.
She look around for see if there is someone she know, but there is only a few people around and they are only acqauintances with whom she don't especially wish to talk.
She notice a young man sat on a bench writing in a book, she had never see him before and have no idea of whom he is though she know most people around court, at last by sight and name, so she is intrigued.
She hesitate to come closer because she is rather shy with men aside her friends and in more he seem to be busy, but he seem to be nice and respectable person and the curiousity win on her shyness, then come closer and bow to him.

Good day, mylord ...

She wait for see if he will look at her, blushing slighty, she then bow to him and continue.

I hope that I am not distrubing since you seem to be busy but I know most people at court though it's the first time I see you ... so I am curious ...

She smile shyly and ask .

May I introduce myself ?

As i am writing i hear the cheerful cries of a young girl and glance up to see a woman and child that I have yet to meet. I smile as she approaches me and glance down at the little girl by her side winking at her. the little girl grins and then shyly hides behind the young womena she is with.
The young woman then speaks to me. I sit down my book and rise from the bench. Good day to you my lady as a glorious day it is. I have just recently arrive dto the English courts on business with His Majesty King Henry VIII.
I am the King of Italy Armand Giovanni.
i take her hand into mine and kiss it smiling up to her. May I have the pleasure of your name my lady?

Emilie smile to him, impressionnied to learn that he is the king of Italy, she had guess from his rich clothes that he was a noble, but she hadn't think that he could be a king, especially since he seem approcheable and unaffected.
She blush as he kiss her hand, courstey .

My name is Emilie de Fontanay, your majesty.

She turn to her daughter who is hiding playfully behind her and observe the king curiously in smiling, she giggle, amused, then put a arm around her shoulders, then turn again to the king.

And this little mischievous, is my daughter, Olympe.

She smile to him warmly and add.

Nice to meet you, iIt's a glorious day indeed, your majesty, since two foreign people encounter, myself I am french, I am born and grew up in France, but I live here in England since nearly five years, it's my country of adoption. It's why I know everyone around court, even if I don't live at court in full time anymore.
