All Of Your Mistakes

When Lady Henriette discovers her husband to be, Duke Richard of Gloucester, is secretly married she feels upset and betrayed to say the least.

Bourbon advises both the French and English King to turn their backs on the young Duke for treason to both countries.
Having fled his fiancée Henriette for a young maid, Richard is alone, his Father is furious. An alliance between France and England is long awaited. With nowhere to run Richard turned to Henriette for help. She offers him some, but not the kind of help Richard desired.

14. Chapter Fourteen

Dear Richard, Duke of Gloucester,

My dear, how have you been, keeping yourself busy I see, word has reached my ear that darling Martha is expecting a child. How wonderful for you, I am sure you must be thrilled.

How is she by the way, my little prodigy, keeping herself useful to your Lord’s service? I should not pry, the less I knew the better. I do not wish to know the details of my plan but I would like something to reach my ear other than whispers and rumours.

Besides I am writing to inform you I will be starting the next phase in a few days, I rode to Paris a week ago and have been staying in the Queen’s chambers, her servants have been preparing my food and combing my hair, I could not be closer to her if I tried.

My daughter will no doubt write to you telling you of my illness, I do hope you have not filled your time too much with her foolish ways. What you are doing for me is a marvellous thing, and I must remind you that you will be highly rewarded when all is done and matters resolved.

I must ask how things are going your end of the deal. Keeping things sweet there for me I hope? Just remember if you stick to the plan all will be well. I have thought everything through; nothing will be left to chance.
the D of Bourbon
