George Hardwick III Posted October 27, 2022 Share Posted October 27, 2022 George had been pleased to learn he was accommodated in the Main Tower, such that he failed to question the Steward's mention of 'Lord & Lady' being housed there. He was cheerfully chuffed in fact. His second floor was the roof of Dukes and Princes upon first, and on the other side of walls from important persons holding important positions. 'What could I have done to be rewarded like this?' The usually serious faced Earl wondered as he mounted the steps two at a time. 'Ah, but it is Beverly, of course. ' Was his conclusion, upon account of a very generous donation he'd given Cumberland’s man, for wasn’t Cumberland in turn warden of Windsor. This conclusion was satisfying, and he was pleased to think 'So all good things come around in the end. But upon entering the room, his brow furrowed. It was not just his trunks sitting in the middle of the floor. But another set also, a set that was also familiar, for he'd seen them arrive with his Fiancée-come-houseguest in the recess. It was at that moment that the Stewards words came echoing back to him, The Suite of Lord AND Lady Chichester. "Good Grief, they have made a mistake, We aren’t married yet." He vocalised out aloud, a decidedly clammy sensation sweeping over him, as he turned to reopen the door... OOC: Tag! Quote Apartment of Lord & Lady Chichester The apartment is small, but comfortable, with two rooms. There is a living room, with a small seating arrangement near the hearth and a table. A pair of windows is set into the south wall, overlooking the Long Walk and Castle Hill. A small carved walnut table and chair set rests between the windows while a small door, hidden behind a wine-colored curtain with thick tassels, beside the fireplace opens into a little closet. Candelabras rest on the table and mantel, casting long shadows over the polished wood of the floor. In the next room a large walnut bed resting against the east wall. The bed is hung with wine-colored velvet, the fabric trimmed with gold tassels. Across from the bed is a stone hearth whose crackling fire keeps the chill at bay. Small silver bells have been affixed to the edges of the mantel with silver satin bows and to the tie backs of the drapes and bed curtains.

The room is furnished simply but elegantly in shades of pale green. A bank of windows along the south wall offers a view of the Long Walk and Castle Hill, letting in prodigious amounts of sunlight on a clear day. A carved rosewood writing table is placed against the windows while a handful of straight-backed chairs, cushioned in matching shades of green, are dotted throughout the room. Along the west wall is a deep-set stone fireplace that crackles merrily at all times to ward off the cold: it is draped with a swath of royal blue velvet, a wreath of seasonal flowers gracing the center of the swathe. An iron chandelier hangs from the ceiling, the light glinting off of the polished wood floors. Silver bows and bells adorn the tiebacks of the drapes..
