A servant had told Madeline that lady in waiting Charlotte had come back to Versailles. They were of the same age and Madeline didn't see many people due to her health since being born. Immediately she sent a note asking for Charlotte to meet her in parts of the palace that wasn't crowded with courtiers.

Charlotte immediately left her chambers when the note from the princess arrived. She felt honored that her presence was requested and believed it would be good to spend time with someone of the same age. When she neared the fountain, Princess Madeline was not hard to spot and she quickly curtsied once she was in front of her. Your Highness, I received your note.

Charlotte it's so great to see you again, I am glad you are here. Madeline was still a little bit weak from when the physicians applied leeches. As Madeline was born so poorly she often felt like a burden to her family. One arranged marriage given to the De Guise family as Madeline would not of survived the journey. I was thrilled to hear of your return. No one else around here are the same age as me and only a rare few are allowed to see me.

I am glad to be here, Your Highness. I have not heard much about you, I was worried. Charlotte could not help but be concerned, if she was being honest the Princess did not seem to be in good health. My father fell ill and I needed to go to him, the Queen was gracious enough to give me my leave. Though I was sad to leave court, it was necessary. I am too thrilled to be back, I did not realize how much I missed court life until I was back.

Inge decided to take some fresh air in the garden. She was walking near the Medici fountain. She was admiring the beauty of the fountain, and at the same time she was thinking to bring her son Leo in France and to accept a place in Eleonor's household

I had arrived in France to be wed to the Dauphin Henri and as I walked the gardens I noticed a young woman standing by the Medici fountain.

"It is a beautiful fountain isn't it? I ask as I approached.

Inge was admiring the fountain as she heard a female voice behind her. She turned her head and she smiled noticing a very elegant lady

"Oh yes..really it is. I have heard that this is called Medici Fountain, my lady. I think Medici's family is the owner..but I have never met none of them. My name is Inge Bergmann..I came to France from Bavaria.."

She curtsied after she spoke

I smiled at the young kind lady who stood before me admiring my family's fountain.

"I am pleased to meet you Inge. This fountain is indeed beautiful and I am not sure you know this but it was donated by my father Lorenzo de Medici as a gift to King Francis to show the wealth and freindship with France. I myself am his daughter Catherine de Medici.

"I thank you for your kind compliments Lady Inge. I was taught many languages in Italy and can speak English, French, Italian and German too and I can dance but not sure to the same standard as the French. What brings you to court?

"I came for Queen Eleanor's wedding, my Lady. She offered me a position in her household. And maybe I'll accept. Will you come at new Queen's coronation, Lady Catherine?"

She asked keeping on walking with her

"Lady Inge I may be able to talk to some at court and find some who can help your son get used to the court and also there are tutors too I believe in Paris who know the way of the court. It is your choice of course but may I suggest you accept her offer and she will be able to help your son with the customs too or even my soon to be husband.

I smiled as I walked with Inge along the garden.

"I am honoured to have a friend like you here with me and I do hope that all will be well with myself and Prince Henry and I would love for when I become Queen someday that you will join my household just like Eleanor's? My family are all still in Florence yes they rule most of the surrounding areas too and are very wealthy bankers most of them.
