He looked icy at him.
'Of course I can't send you away... that's why I asked you to leave!' he stood up and walked toward him.

'.... for the sake of lady Cordelia...' he said softly, shaking his head.
He took a deep breath and added.
'You must be aware of her... feelings for you, My Lord. Someone has to protect her and prevent her from foollish actions like kissing in front of the whole court and obviously... you don't understand this innocent kiss as you call it harms her reputation... and therefore the King's reputation!'

Royce looked at him with proud eyes

Her reputation is safe with me, Cardinal. And I'd never do nothing to damage His Majesty. I'm a man of honour, and I'll show it to you. Then...I've no intention to leave court. Unless it is KIng's wish, Your Eminence...

He replied, staring at him with a challange air

Wolsey sighed.
'Allright then... I trust I've warned you enough. I will talk to the King, meanwhile I ask you to keep some distance from her. Like I told her yesterday, I don't want to break your friendship... but she does not listen, she has no control...''he shook his head and frowned.

He looked into his eyes.
'.... so I hand this to you, My Lord, in the hope you keep word and do nothing to damage her - again. No more kisses in public and no more private visits in your - or her - bedroom!'

He took the casket and placed it in the Duke's hands.
'I thank you for coming and again I thank you on behalf of His Majesty for rescuing her... Just for my interest, My Lord, why did you go by yourself and did not warn the guards to accompany you?'

Royce took the cascket and looked back at him

I told you, Cardinal...I'm a warrior. I'm used to face enemies by myself. And about princess Cordelia...I'll keep my promise. You and His Majesty have nothing to fear...Your Eminence...

He said proudly. Then bowed respectfully at him and left the room

He smiled and bowed his head slightly while the Duke left. I'm used to face my enemies by myself the Duke said. He sat down again and laughed at himself, because that also applied to him. Perhaps I'm a warrior, too he thought, still smiling while he took a new parchment and a quill.

My mother told me before her leaving that I had to go see The Cardinal Wolsey. I waited for a moment nervously outside the door, brushing my hands against my dress and running my fingers through my hair.

I finally asked a servant to inform The Cardinal I was here.

Wolsey laid aside some papers as the servant announced lady Elizabeth Craven. He waved at him to let her enter, stood up and walked towards the door to welcome her.

´Lady Elizabeth, come in, please. Let me congratulate you with the marriage of your brother... what a beautiful day!´ he looked curious at her.

´I hope she feels better, your new sister-in-law?'

I enter the room and bow very deeply. I then slowly rise,"Your Eminence."

I then smile,"My brother is very happy and my sister is now well. I think they are both very happy together..."

'Ahh... I am most pleased to hear this.' he smiled warmly.

'Lady Elizabeth, please, take a seat, can I offer you a drink?' he made an inviting gesture and sat down himself.

As I sit I reply,"Some water please, Your Eminence..."

He waits for the servant to pour the water and leave again, then he looks at her.
'Your mother has visited me, as you might know. I admire her strength and courage, she is a brave and dignified lady, it was very nice to see her again after so many years.'

He sigh and frown a little.
'She needs your support, now, like that of your brothers.'

I smile and bow my head,"Your Eminence, my mother says it is all beyond her deserving."

I then add,"She has my undivided support. It is a comfort that she will now live closer to my brother Thomas and his family."

He nodd slowly.
'Yes, they will surely be her consolation in this difficult time.'

He looks at her, smiling affably.
'I've missed you, lady Elizabeth... I thought you'd come by to tell me your experiences. Well, you have been busy, I suppose, so I am most pleased to see you now. Do you like it so far to serve the Queen?'

I nod and smile a little but as he mentions that I have not seen him I frown and lower my head.

"Forgive me Your Eminence...I...I was kept busy in Her Majesty's chambers,"I then smile a little,"Her Majesty is most kind. It is an honour to serve her."

He noted with satisfaction that she feels a little uncomfortable but he keeps smiling.

´I am pleased to learn you take your tasks seriously... they are your first priority!
I am also most pleased to hear that Her Majesty treats you most kindly... she does not trust her English servants so easily...´
he sigh inaudible.

´I´d like you to tell me if she is well and good natured?' he asks her curiously.

I smile,"I think since I am able to speak in Her Majesty's native tongue she finds it easier to speak with me."

I nod,"Her Majesty is in good spirits...she is as well as can be expected."

He nods and smiles prudent.
´I am glad to hear this, my lady... Anything else to tell me, something special happened?' to hide his curiosity he messes between his papers like it does not really interest him.

I tilt my head slightly and carefully tuck a golden hair behind my ear,"Your Eminence...Her Majesty...continues to show the greatest of love for His Majesty-always ready and willing to do his bidding. She often asks after His Majesty's health and prays he remains in good spirits..."

He nods slowly and looks at her for a moment, then picks up another paper and studies it attentively.

´Hmmmmm.... and has she received visitors lately? Some Spanish visitors, I mean?'

"Her Majesty receives daily visits from her confessor and of course her ladies-some of whom are Spanish...although I have been told,Your Eminence...many of Her Majesty's Spanish ladies with Her household have been...disbanded."

I know he prys about anyone from Spain who may try to support Her Majesty's cause-but not even I know. I have tried not to so I may not have to lie to The Cardinal...

He throws the paper on his desk and leans forward, his elbows on the table and his head rests on his folden hands. He needs to be more specific, though she seems ignorant.

'Yes, the king ordered to remove her Spanish servants... in fact, all Spanish at court, except the ambassador, Mendoza. Have you seen him in her quarters, or... Cardinal Fisher?'

I sit up straighter still as he throws the papers on the desk. I glance down-I never could understand why my father conversed with The Cardinal. He told me that he admired his ambition but pitied his soul.

"I have only been in the company of Her Majesty and her other ladies...I have neither seen nor spoke with anyone else in Her Majesty's apartments
."

I do not lie. I have not-although there have been whispers around court...

He sigh and shakes his head. What a waste of time! He looks inquiring at her, if it wasn't for her father he would remove her at once.

'Alright... thank you my lady. It's obious that the Queen does not yet trust you enough to allow you to attend to her revenues. I thank you for your time and see you again soon... when you have to report me something essential.'

He stands up as a sign that she may leave.

I stand quickly and bow very deeply, almost touching the solid wooden floor,"Thank you, Your Eminence."

I hurriedly leave...
