Arthur arrived at the archery field to meet up with Gustav and Isabella Vasa. It would be some time for them to get to know each other better and hopefully he could build up some trust between the two of them, so that he could prove to him that he was going to be a good husband for his sister.

I waited on the archery field with my sister then I see in the distance that the young man Arthur was approaching the field ready for our meeting. I wanted to know him better to see if he deserved my sister in marriage.

Isabella arrived at the castle, smiling as she watched Arthur approach her brother while she watched from the distance so not to be found out, but she couldn't help herself and before Gustav had a chance to speak up she shuck up behind Arthur leaning up kissing him on the cheek before moving along side her brother, she wanted this more then ever and she stood beside the King of Sweden her older brother and reached for a bow

"Brother, I challenge you in archery, if I win, you give Arthur a yes answer, but if I loose you get to make Arthur prove himself as a suitable husband, one in which I noticed him to be more then worthy." She says, notching her bow strongly taking aim with her arrow, she had been taught so well by Gustav growing up she knew exactly what she was doing, Taking aim she shot her arrow head on in the center of the target not missing her target a inch. A perfect aim and shot she done with that arrow and she smiled at her brother, she knew her brother meant to protect her but she loved challenging him all the same.

I see my sister approach and come over and she challenges me to archery. I smile.

"Very well sister if that is what you would like then you have a deal. I say seeing her hit the centre of the target and I was impressed but I also knew that I taught her so I got my first arrow and aimed and split hers in half.

"Great shot sister but I do believe it is a tie but if you want to we can make it the best of five. What do you say sister?

Isabella peeked over at her brother and smiled, of course he was determined to beat her so that she may have to wait for that approval. Notching her bow once more taking sharp aim toward the target he then shot before at she let the arrow go, it shot so quickly toward his splitting his in half and shredding the feathers of his arrow with it. All those years of practice payed off but she had some spunk in her a bit, being raised by nothing but men she didn't have a motherly figure in her life and Gustav was the only fatherly figure she had since there parents died and there father died before she was born.

She turned looking at Gustav also "Well I suppose but I still beat you." she chuckles a bit, teasingly speaking toward him "best of five sounds nice but that blessing though my brother, I think Arthur had earned it." she turned her eyes toward Arthur as she was smarter often then her brother realized and had a way of wrapping her brother around her finger too.

I looked closely towards my sister as she launched her arrow then five targets were set up at different distances I was to go first. I aimed at each target hitting the direct center on all five and then I thought to myself that Isabella would struggle to hit the last two in the centre as she always struggled with far away targets. I turned my head towards her.

"This is the challenge sister I have hit all five in the centre which we will say now if you hit all five of yours in the same place it is a tie. You think that Arthur has learnt it. I said I would approve but only when I am satisfied." I say as her targets are set up exactly the same.

Feeling the kiss on his cheek he was chuckling a little with a huge smile on his face. Then he saw both Gustav and Isabella standing there waiting for him. As soon as he heard the princess of Sweden making a bet with her brother he was smirking while looking at the both of them. Would the king of Sweden take that challenge? It seemed like he was agreeing to the challenge and all he could do was to watch the two of them as they started the game. "It seems like both of you are excellent at this game."

As soon as he got eye contact with Isabella he was sending her a kind smile while loving those eyes of hers.After that he focused on the game afterwards again while watching how Gustav was shooting and he did a perfect job with it. Of course, he would love it if he could have the approval of her hand in marriage now, but he wasn't afraid to prove his worth to Isabella's brother either.

There was one thing Isabella learned from Gustav, she didn't have a single problem getting under his sleeve. She learned even ways of doing things from her brother Magnus, she was born a twin to another brother named Eric and she chuckles at Gustav "Difficult as ever. I'd expect no less then you, my stubborn King and brother" she says teasingly, shaking her head but really Gustav was right to be concerned, he was overly protective of her and rightfully so, she was his only sister. Magnus though was the more difficult one, he didn't even obey the King there brother's demands at marriage and womanized and done what he wanted, Isabella admired him for his boldness and even admired Gustav too.

Taking a arrow one after another, she notched her bow taking aim after the targets were moved in different angles taking aim directly to the best her ability, shooting right on splitting every arrow of her brother's arrows shot in the center. After she placed her bow in the post which stood there, smiling at her brother after "Well I do know any children I have, you will be a wonderful uncle." she given a compliment, but really she could see herself having many children with Arthur, the Earl of York. She turned her attentions then to Arthur and chuckles, she realized he saw everything and chuckles "Gustav, he taught me everything I know and I learned a few things from our brother Magnus too. Both of them enjoy archery perhaps even as much as I do, it was something to do while in Sweden."

I look at my sister and at Arthur.

"You have listened well to the training I taught you with your bow sister and I am impressed. My lord Arthur did you enjoy our game?"

Arthur was watching their game with huge interest. Back in York they had a lot of different games, but not this one. It was always fascinating to see which kind of games they grew up with depending on where they were born and raised. "Perhaps both of you can teach me how to play this game one day. I think I would enjoy it very much." He spoke with a bright smile on his face and he felt good in their company. After they finished the game he turned his attention back at Gustav. "I enjoyed the game very much, your highness. You both have some excellent skills that I admire to the fullest. The last question is who of you won?" To him it looked like they were equal, but he wasn't entirely sure.

Isabella smiled at Arthur "The King he taught me well, as a only sister he has I suppose it was something common which would be done for a brother to teach his sister the skills a man would have, including that of hunting. I always had enjoyed it even as a girl, Archery was always a favorite of mine, maybe perhaps as I have gotten so good at it." She spoke her hands folded in front of her in a modest manner, her eyes fixated upon Arthur and a warm smile formed upon her lips as she heard him wanting to learn "I can teach you a few things, i'm sure Gustav wouldn't mind either" She winks at her brother, only then after she reached her hand to Arthur "Come, let's give it a shot shall we?" she hands him a bow and a arrow, guiding him how to do it "The arrow here and notch her bow like so.." A gentle caress of her hand upon his , her cheek near his. "Aim right on toward the target, keen eye and concentration. more so the key to succeed is to believe in yourself most of all and that you can do it. But should you fail just keep trying" she smiled once more, letting him have a try at it.

I looked at Arthur as he asked about our game.

"Our game was a draw my lord for there can be no winner when one is as good as the other. My sister Isabella here was such a fast learner and I will always protect her too even though she has her own great bow talents I will always look out for her. I say to him as Isabella offers to teach him.

"I shall enjoy watching your game my lord and I warn you my sister is very good but I am sure you will learn a great deal too.

Arthur was smiling back at Isabella. "It sounds like you've enjoyed being the only girl born into the family. That way you could participate in the more fun games and such." A slight chuckle came from him, but he found it cool that she found such a huge interest in not being like most other princesses were today. He loved the bond that Gustav and Isabella had with each other. It seemed like they had a strong and solid bond which he was admiring. "That sounds good to me." He grabbed the bow and arrow she handed him. Then he followed her instructions and tried holding it just the way she told him to. As soon as he felt her soft hand caressing his he got a little distracted from listening though. Then he started listening again as he was pointing his arrow towards the target. "You're very good at describing it all in details. Anyone could learn playing Archery from you." Before he decided to shoot, he was turning his attention over at Gustav who spoke. "It looks like you guys were equally good at this game. I give you two that." With a nod and a smile in the king's direction, he was now lookig back at the target doing his best to concentrate before shooting the arrow off. It was close to the middle, but two rings out. "It's actually quite difficult for a new beginner."

Isabella loved seeing Arthur trying so hard but she smiled at him, but she peeked her eyes at her brother. Of course he was being difficult and overly protective but she chuckles "And you brother, I would never expect any less from you." She grins at him, shaking her head immediately,

"He was always so protective of me and rightly so. I am his only sister but I suppose I did love being the only girl in our family, it just means he would be the one to chase all the boys away and just so I could find the right one, if it wasn't for him, I probably would have had countless men chasing after me but I do admire how eager he was to keep me safe, he was always there to do that" She admitted, her eyes looking at her brother the King

She saw Arthur hit the target and smiled once more "It is not easy, that much is certain but if you practice enough you may even surpass me in archery skills." She winks at him, but she was on her best behavior in front of her brother as she didn't want to displease him in any way at all.

I smiled at my sister and watched the way she was teaching Arthur to shoot and was impressed when he hit the target first time but he did still have some way to go.

"My Lord you are getting the hang of it but I might advise that you raise your left arm a little it may help with your launch of the bow. I say as my messenger approaches and whispers to me.
