500Re: Lord and Lady Dudley's Rooms
- Jan 4, 2010Jane nodded and slipped her hand out of his and returned to her seat across the table, picking up her hand of discarded cards. She took a small sip of her wine and glanced over to her husband. Cards was not her favorite pass time, but she did it because it pleased him. And it was her wifely duty to please him.
If only his mother did not think so low of her. It was not secret that his mother did not like the Lady Jane Grey Dudley, but Jane was worried how she would react to finding out Jane was with child. Last she had heard, Guildford had orders not to lay with her because she was an ungrateful snip who had not given him the crown matrimonal. But she could not have done it. At the time, Guildford was not ready for the crown, neither was herself. But now...she was just glad it was not her burden to bear.
Jane longed for another audience with her cousin and this time in private so she could try to appeal to the Queen's since of fairness and promise her undying loyalty and support and promice to embrace the "true religion" because it would make her all the more less appitising a canadite if she were not protestant.
Jane watched the card game play out taking little intrest in it. A book sat on the table and she could not help but to want to read it. It was an old copy of plato that had been a favorite of hers for a while. Little Mary had seen fit to send it to her and she could not help but be thankful to her favorite little sister. But she must do as her husband comands because he was her master.
No she didn't give that title away to a man lightly, but Lord Guildford Dudley had earned it. He had taken control of her in this situation and proved his love for her. And in turn she gave him her love, her devotion, and her unwavering obidence. All that it took to make Jane yours was a little love that she had been so starved of.
