Blackguard Posted May 5, 2011 Share Posted May 5, 2011 The sun had retreated over the horizon and darkness came down like a curtain outside the mansion. Candles were lit in anticipation as the large man looked nervously out the window from his study. "Excellency, do not worry. All of London is awaiting word of its new Queen. So too should the French, in their belief that it will be Chartres chosen. Under the cover of darkness, the package delivery should go unnoticed." It was a young man that tried to calm the older one. "I hope you are right Alfonso. My best men are there," came the reply from the dark-haired Ambassador. "Oh, one other thing Excellency, we caught the boy trying to contact the Lady Valencia again ... ." When Pedro turned back from the window, his face bore a sour expression. "He was told he would be beaten if he attempted it again." The Ambassador's hand clenched and unclenched in annoyance. "Find him and put him on the next ship to the colonies. We do not need distractions." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
