Charles Whitehurst Posted March 6, 2016 Share Posted March 6, 2016 ooc~ Continuation from the Privy Chamber thread with everyone. Charles had to get out of the Privy Chamber. He had tried to send Davina every subtle signal he could. Now he had to rely on the fact that she would take her leave of the others in a few minutes. If she was smart, she would not follow immediately. That would seem too suspicious. Thus, the Earl of Langdon was compelled to walk in the corridors outside, as if he were awaiting an audience with the King, or sought to protect the King by patrolling the halls. Nods were reserved for any passing servant or courtier while he paced. There was one lady he awaited and two ladies he wished to avoid at all costs for the next half hour -- Catherine Sedley and Susan Herbert. Catherine would be unlikely to roam the royal apartments, he thought, given the fallout with York. Susan Herbert would frequent the corridors in the service of the Queen, and he was not inclined to chat with her just yet about their next steps to solve the mystery of the Lion and the Swan. What would Davina think if she exited only to find Charles in a private conversation with Susan? Who could predict the minds of women? I'll just send her on her way, Charles told himself in case Susan Herbert happened upon him and wanted to talk. They had their own reasons to keep their conversations private. The only other person to avoid would be the Duke of York. He knew a conversation would be required; but, he could only hope it was outside the presence of Davina. It seemed like many long minutes had passed; but, in truth it had been but one. Time never moved quickly when one wanted it. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
