Catherine lead the way through the Palace to her own apartments and when they finally arrived in the right corridor, the doors already opened. She gently squeezed in Oduan's hand and walked through the door.

Elise had gone to her room, she had enjoyed the horse ride very much. It was like a little adventure, exploring the palace gardens. She hadn’t been everywhere jet so there were still new places to discover. Now she was back inside and in her room. Looking around what she would do next as she did not like sitting still for long. She sees her favourite teddy bear and thinks why not let him have an adventure too. She takes the teddy and runs trough the hall.
She entered Catherine's room, she wasn’t there but that didn’t matter really. For bear it was a unknown place so it was ideal for exploring.
She climbs on the bed and lies down, her belly on the cheats.


Come bear lets discover the new land.

Elise said out loud what bear was doing, it might look a little strange but she was used to do this kind of playing when she was alone.

Bear climbs over the mountains, all the way to the other side

In the same time she let the teddybear make little hops over the pillows from the bed.

But bear did not see the land stopped and so he jumped right into the gulf.

Elise bows over the edge of the bed so the bear was on the ground. While doing so, she accidently pushed over a glass of water standing on the night table with her bear. Ai she thinks, but I will clean it up later so nobody will know

Luckily bear can climb very well.

She let the bear climb on the edge of the bed, making little climbing moves with his hands.

Ohnoooo,
bear slips and falls down, but he can hold on at one of the rocks, pfffjoe. He start to climb again and slowly he reaches the top. Then he makes a biiiig jump all the way over the field and ends up at the other side.


Elise rolls over her back on her shoulder and the teddy made a big jump trough the air and landed at the other side of the bed.

There he…

Elise notices the people standing in the room and blinks a few times with her eyes.

euhhh

Quickly she sits up straight and puts the bear on her lap. She knows Catherine and Oduan but the man that is with them she doesn’t know

Hello sir, Catherine, Oduan… how are you?

Elise looks over to the glass that had fallen and explains

Bear dropped the glass while he wanted to climb the mountains. But don’t be mad at him, he couldn’t help it

Elise puts on a very sweet smile and hugs her teddy

Oduan enters the room and spend some moments looking to the adventures of Bear and Elise. The fresh smile of the Queen is always welcomed by the Duke he smiles to her.


Your most gratious Majesty, let me introduce you the General Vicar of Middlesex father Roberto. He will take care of the state of your soul and teach you to know God and be a pietous Queen.

Roberto walkes behind Catherine and Oduan through the labyrinth of corridors.
After a while they enter a room, which seem to be the private apartment of the High Lady Regent.
At first Roberto is amazad by the spendour and stylish furniture.
The High Lady regent certainly has a good taste.
Then is attention is drawn to a little girl, sitting on de bed and playing with a teddybear.
Roberto didn't know that the High Lady regent already had a child.
But when Oduan intruduces him to the little girl, he becomes aware of the fact that this little girl is her majesty the Queen.
Roberto blushes and steps forward.
Standing in front of the Queen, he makes a big bow.
Roberto keeps quiet, for he knows that he should not speek to the Queen, unless he is spoken to.

Elise smiles towards the vicar and bows her head.
Nice to meat you father Roberto, you will baptise me? Very Happy

She had already asked many times to be baptised but the time had never been there.
Elise looks exited to Roberto, her bear she kept on her lap.

Then the queen bows to him and speeks

Nice to meat you father Roberto, you will baptise me?

At first Roberto is a bit surprised by the cheerfull way she talks, but then he realises that she is just a child after all, although she is the queen.
He steps forward an answars her question.

Your most gracious Majesty, it is an honour to meet you.
It would be even more of an honour to babtise you, The head of our Holy Church.
For I am just a humble servant of God.


Roberto smiles at her as he sees the bear on her lab

Excuse me for asking, your Majesty, but does the bear have to be babtised too?

When Roberto saw the big smile on the Queen's face, his heart was filled with bliss. This was really and act of God. making people happy when they experience the unexpected. Roberto lokked at the queen and answered.

Of course your Majesty, of course can the bear be babtised at the same time as your Majesty.
God created all creatures, men, animals, plants and teddybears. And he loves them all equally.
But, as I'm not sure if bear can speak for himself, then your Majesty should do that for him, because your Majesty knows him the best.


Roberto looked at the young Queen, and after that at the High Lady regent and the Duke.

But where is the babtism going to take place?
Here or in the Cathedral? Or is there a special chapel here in the palace?

Catherine stood still for a moment and gave the two men the chance to speak to the Queen. As the General Vicar began to have short conversation with the Queen, Catherine drew herself closer to Oduan and hold his hand again. Everybody in this room knew about her situation now and she was finding it more and more difficult to function as the High Lady Regent and being confronted with a fullgrown belly.

The Queen and I were thinking about the Cathedral. She would be able to see London too then, before she is going to visit it in a more official way.

Catherine now sat down next to Elise and smiled to both Elise and Roberto.

And.. you know about my situation too..

Catherine sighed softly.

Elise nods, she would speak for bear. When Catherine come sit next to her she looks up to her for a moment. Her eyes follow the conversation between Roberto and Catherine as she looks at the one who is speaking. But then Catherine says something she doesn't understand. Her situation? She had no clue what Catherine meant with that.
Carefully she puts her teddy on the lap of Catherine and climbs of the bed to go to Oduan. Because Catherine is in conversation she would ask Oduan. On a whispering tone she askes.


What is that? Her situation?

Oduan watches Elise come to him and speak in a soft voice.

Your Majesty, what Lady Catherine calls her condition is the fact that she is expecting. A baby grows inside her getting ready to be born.

And turning to Roberto and Catherine he adds

If it is the Lady Regent wish that the cermony takes place in London's Cathedral I think that the General Vicar wont have any problem with it, am I wrong?

Roberto hears Oduan explaining catherines situation to the young Queen. He is pleased that he does that in e very elegant way. Then he hears his question.

If it is the Lady Regent wish that the cermony takes place in London's Cathedral I think that the General Vicar wont have any problem with it, am I wrong?


Roberto looks at the people present and answers

You're not wrong at all, my dear friend.
I would be delighted to lead the ceremony in the cathedral.
I think it is the most apropiate place to do so.
And may I sugest to go there right away.
So Catherine can be babtized aswell, before her situations alters.


Roberto moves towards the door, so they all will follow him to the the cathedral.

Catherine listened to what Oduan told the little Queen about her condition. She smiled because of it. The longer Catherine was engaged to Oduan, the more she began to love him. She already did when he proposed but seeing him explaining something to this child was giving her the feeling to fall in love all over again.

As the General Vicar began to speak again, Catherine gave back her attention to him and nodded while hearing him. She hold the teddy of Elise still on her lap.

You are right, Roberto. I think it's for the best to go there right away. Elise, we are going to the Cathedral right now. Do you have any questions for this kind man here?

Catherine smiled to Roberto and then looked again to Elise.

Elise did not quit understand it, and thought it was very confusing.

how does a baby got into Catherine's belly. Did she eat it first?
Was I in a belly too?

She goes back to Catherine, takes her teddy back and bows over to Catherine's belly.


Hello baby, grow well in there.
When will you come out?


She puts her ear on the belly and waited for an answer but it didn't came.

Why doesn't baby answers?

Elise looks at Catherine for a moment when she asks if she has any questions left, then she looks to Roberto.

Does baby needs to be baptised too?

Before they leave the private apartment, the young queen asks him.....

Does baby needs to be baptised too?

Roberto smiles at her ans answers...

Yes, you majesty, but not yet.
First the baby has to be born, then it will be babtised also.
But we are not going to wait for that.
First of all I am going to babtise your majesty and the High Lady Regent.

Elise goes on asking and asking problematic questions. Catherine was about to blush and maybe even Roberto was starting to feel troubled. Oduan speaked.

My Queen... see how late is it, we better may be going or we wont arrive at the Cathedral on time... and about this questions you will have time to ask them...years in fact.

He turned to the Regent and the Vicar

We were moving, weren't we?

Elise is left with a lot of questions but she understands this is not the time for it. She holds bear close to her and follows Roberto. But before she leaves the room she turns around, goes back to Catherine and holds her hand.

Come Catherine, we must go

Catherine was quite shocked when Elise started to ask all kinds of questions about her pregnancy and the baby. She didn't know how to reply and only began to blush instead. When Oduan decided to save the situation, Catherine felt relieved and only nodded while trying to get up again in time. It sure wasn't easy. She smiled to Elise when she came back and while holding Elise's hand, Catherine followed her fiancee and the General Vicar.

It was already very late in the evening when the coach with Catherine and Elise in it run through the Palace gates again. Marie-Thérèse's coach was already standing before the great entrance and Catherine was able to see that Marie-Thérèse just came out, helped by one of her ladies in waiting. When their own coach stopped too, Catherine was helped by her own lady in waiting. Then she turned around and helped the little Queen Elise out herself. While holding the hand of Elise, they walked over to Marie-Thérèse and together they went into the Palace of Whitehall. With the white landscape, the palace looked even more beautiful and mysterious.

As it was already very late, Elise was really tired. She gave her sister a goodnight kiss and already walked too the Queen's apartments. Catherine was used to help Elise to bed every night and after giving Marie-Thérèse a goodnight kiss as well, she went to Elise's apartments. After reading a little story to Elise, Catherine saw that Elise was already asleep. She gave the little girl a kiss on her cheeck and left quietly Elise's apartment.

Eventually, Catherine returned to her own apartments and locked the door. She closed the curtains and slowly began to undress herself. Since the day she came to the Palace of Whitehall, she refused any help with undressing. She was used to do it by herself and she actually needed that privacy. A sad feeling came over her as she put on her nightly dress. She doubtfully walked towards a closet and opened the lowest drawer. Catherine carefully took a huge painting out of it and walked back to her bed and sat down on its side. The family of Stewart stood on it and it actually used to hang in the hallways of Cobham Hall, the family residence.

Catherine thought about what happened in the past few years. After she lost her father, mother and the aunt and uncle who raised her when she became an orphin, she was forced to flee to Normandy. She stayed there for five years with a very kind monk and then came back to England, since her brother Piero asked her to. This year, which started so happily, wasn't that great for Catherine. Piero died and after the disappearance of Queen Marie-Thérèse, Catherine was forced to raise Elise and take over the regency of England, Scotland and Ireland. She didn't even had the chance to mourn for the death of her brother, which made her the only living Stewart left. Catherine wasn't going to give birth to any Stewarts, that's for sure. At least, her children wouldn't be having the family name. The family of Stewart would simply disappeare. And if that wasn't enough, Catherine didn't see or heard something from her fiancee, Duke Oduan de Altuna. Did he left her without saying anything? Would she see him ever again? She loved him, which was really unique for a marriage between two nobles.

Catherine stared at the painting for a very long time and eventually, a tear fell on it. Her hand touched the painted persons and she tried to smile through her tears.


Merry Christmas..

With the help of the Lady-in-Waiting, Piero and Catherine made it to the private apartments of the Lady Regent. Catherine thanked the Lady-in-waiting and after closing the door, she looked at her brother. He was sitting in one of the comfortable chairs. Catherine stayed by the door since she really didn't knew what to do next. She kept looking at him in silence.

Piero stood still in his chair, looking directly to Catherine. He had recovered his usual posture, looking around the room, sometimes raising his eyebrowns to something which interested him. He stood there, for some minutes. In fact, apart from his appearance... he hadn't changed at all. Then, he took off the eyepatch he wore, revealing a blind eye as well as a scar in that side of the face. Then he focused in Catherine's eyes, looking directly towards them. He wanted to try her... how would she react?

I presume... you believe you must have gone mad; or you are in a transcedental experience, seeing a ghost., as he said so, he rose up to his feet, walking around the room in circles, watching closely other details. He had always loved details... he loved perfection itself. But you're wrong., said him as he turned towards his sister. I'm alive... and I'm well, although I could not have said this months ago. Before... before you accuse me of running away, of disappearing from your life, this is not true!

As he said so, he went towards her directly, his eyes fixed upon hers. What choice did I have? I was kidnapped in my coach and found myself awake in a prison, inside a ship. I still don't know by whose orders... and neither why. However, the ship wrecked in the coast of Spain... the rest, my sister, is history.

Catherine kept her silence as she listened to Piero and followed him through the room with her eyes. As she heard how her brother was kidnapped and taken out of the Kingdom, she was shocked. Why didn't she do something? Why didn't she set up a rescue team or something like that. Of course there was the fact that she didn't knew about the kidnapping at all, but why on earth didn't she do something extra then she already did? She blamed herself.

I.. I.. I don't really know what to say. I'm sorry.. I'm so sorry that I didn't do more to have you back here. How were you able to get back here?

Catherine stood still the whole time. Her legs felt very heavy and in her eyes you could see tears coming up.
