"Sister, no one has ever spoken such words to me. They mean so much coming from you." I smiled and grasped her hand. "Honestly I am sometimes afraid of such power. The duchess would have us believe feminine mystique is of the devil."

I speak but the truth Sister.

I gently rubbed her hand on top of mine. Catherine needed to be out at court showing her family just what she was made of. Picking up my quill and some parchment paper I looked straight at her.

Let's proceed to get you to the ball.

I laughed aloud out of sheer pleasure. "Isn't that what the fairy godmother tells the poor cinder girl before she magically transforms her into a vision of perfect, unmatched beauty?" My eyes went to her quill and I imagined the words she would write as our own secret spell to cast me out of misery and into light.

I gently tickled my sister on the end of her nose with the tip of my feather quill.

Yes you are right it is. Their has always been something about you though KittyCat. A unique soul who is .. well rather amazing to be around. Do you think I should bribe old Thomas Boleyn or go in person to change his mind.

I laughed to myself I never wanted to sell my body but.. I was blessed with a great chest.

I laughed as she tickled my nose with the quill. "You really think so, Izzy?" I paused then looked at her in wonder. "You don't have to do that, sister. I'd rather my coming to court was based on an honorable invitation, not because you gave Thomas Boleyn a few moments of illicit pleasure. Not that he wouldn't accept anyway," I smirked.

I laughed looking a bit baffled had I really just offered myself to the Boleyn.

I would never do that with Thomas Boleyn he is old enough to be our father.

I shuddered at the thought if all the Howards were on the rise I just wanted Kitty to be part of it.

"Every man's weakness is for the warm flesh of a woman. But as seasoned a courtier our kinsman may be, I think it would take more than a roll in the sheets to win him over. He may require a favor of substance, I said, thrilled to hear myself speaking like a true court lady already.

Refraining a laugh was hard I could never imagine Thomas Boleyn as ever being sexual.

Lord Boleyn isn't a very sexual man I don't think. He has enough money, I think to get him to agree to you coming to court, would require a favour perhaps.

A favour that we would have to pay for later no doubt. Wasn't that the way the Thomas Boleyns' of this world worked.

"Whatever the debt, let it rest upon my shoulders. It's my own desire to go to court, no one else's."

Such a hefty ransom to pay for a young lady. Did my little sister know what she was embarking upon.

I'll look out for you at court, Kitty Cat. I know you don't need my protection but we are blood.

I went back to penning my letter to Thomas Boleyn. If Thomas was as clever as I thought. He would see that Kitty coming to court would help somehow.

I smiled and glanced outside at the peaceful woods. Twirling a strand of my hair I was a little glad to let Izzy handle the letter. She would protect me, she said, but from what? After the fiasco with Henry Mannox, I could hardly allow myself another entanglement. I'd come away nearly pregnant and ruined, but I wouldn't let it happen again.

I heard of the news about the lady Katherine's kidnapping and I went to investigate and thought about paying the ransom he had asked for for the sake of the lady Katherine.
