Hope Posted April 4, 2017 Share Posted April 4, 2017 OOC: the first player joining this thread can set the time stamp Saint Mark Hall is the residence at Whitehall for guests of the King that do not merit an apartment in the Palace itself. From here it is an easy walk to the Privy Garden. Entering the doors to Saint Marks Hall one steps upon an intricately worked parquet floor. Ahead a wide staircase ascends into the upper levels of the buildings, at it's foot a liveried servant stands to assist those that might need it, running small errands, such a notifying an occupant that they have a visitor. Reception Room To the right, through a wide arched entrance draped with dark green curtains, a drawing room where ladies or gentlemen await each other - for it is not seemly to call upon the opposite sex in their chambers directly. Windows from the drawing room look out upon a small rose garden, and in the warmer months are left ajar during the day allowing the sweet fragrance of their blooms to enter the room. Several groupings of chairs are laid out, again in highly polished mahogany, yet all in view of those passing through the lobby. The woman was seen through to the Reception room. "We were not expecting you until tomorrow marm." said the Steward apologetically. Behind him a air of chamber maids rushed upstairs, while a pair of liveried lads grappled with a great truck they'd need cart up stairs. "May I send for some tea and macarons, or perhaps a cup of mulled wine." The woman, in that age bracket where age is no longer prudent to speak about, gave a strained sigh. "I was assured that my step-son had made all the arrangements." "Oh they are indeed made my lady, there are just a final few touches to make." Mary paused at the door, and looked about the reception room. It had been renovated since her last visit with a showy opulence that was practically French! A smile grew on her face, “this will do very nicely…” she entered the room, “I shall have coffee with brandy, and some of those macrones you recommend.” Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
