I heard you were in here..
I don’t know what you have heard, but…it is not the whole truth…
After hearing of what happened with Bash, she rushed down to the dungeon to see her son. After bribing some of the guards down there with a hefty bag of coins, she was finally allowed to see Bash. She kept her cool until they shut the door and let her have private time with Bash. “My beautiful boy.”
When the door opened, Sebastian lifted his head to look up. He breathed a sigh of relief upon seeing that it was his mother entering the cell and not a guard or a Knight. Or even Francis, because he frankly feared the moment his brother would visit —if he would. “Mother.” He said with a small smile, already knowing that he could tell her how he ended up in there. “I sacrificed someone else in Her Grace’s, Charlotte’s, place and they came right then.” He explained, before Diane could ask.
Sebastian, your worrying me. Please just tell me because I am honestly clueless?
There is nothing to be concerned with, mother.
Francis’ eyebrows rose on their own will at Sebastian’s odd behave, and the boy only wanted to understand what was going on. “Complicated how? I consider myself quite an expert in complicated relationships, so please, brother, explain.” He insisted; Francis was well known for being relentless when it came to some people. Bash was one of them. The sudden change of subject didn’t distract Francis from their previous conversation, but it made him even more curious. “Hunting? Tonight? Odd. Who’s coming with you? However I’m not sure of what I’m going to do tonight. Perhaps I could come with you?”
Sebastian immediately regretted telling Francis that he would be going on a hunting trip. “No, Francis, you cannot come along.” He said, shaking his head and emphasizing his words. “It is not safe for you to be out there when the Pagans are lurking for royals everywhere…” The older male added, hoping that this would convince his brother to not go with him, because that would ultimately ruin his plans of sacrificing someone else in Charlotte’s place. “Besides, I will be back tomorrow evening at the latest.” Sebastian said in a matter-of-fact tone.
We can mix them and make a delicious sandwich with sweetbread and strawberries(!), It sounds really tasty to me!
That is indeed a great idea! We shall do just that!
Did something happen again between Lady Kenna and Henry?
What? Uhm, no, no…Forget I said anything, mother.
Huntin’? Eh, I consider’d bu’ don’ know how close I’m t’the royal grounds. Wish t’make a good impression if I c’n, y’e know… And how ‘bout y’e?
I am planning on going on a hunting trip soon. May I inquire, what brings you here, my Lady?
I still wonder why that happened to her.. And well.. yes, it’s quite unsettling to think about.
It truly is, so please promise you will stay safe, Claude.
