I nod and motion my secretary to follow me as I stand.
I place a gentle kiss upon Catherine's brow.

" You are safe here, little one. France is not afraid of a Papal Bull no matter how loud he bellows."
Catherine gave me smile.

I looked at Henry for a moment.
Then I cursteyed low.

"As you command, You Majesty."

He indicated for me to stand and I left the room.

Once in my private salon, I sat behind my desk while my secretary sat at his.
Once he was seated , he picked up his quill and parchment.
"Ready when you are, Your Grace," he said.

" To all Providences, lands, and nobility of France,
Let it be known that Henry II of France, son of Henry I and Claude of Brittany, has Chosen :ady Catherine of Medici to be His Royal Bride and Consort."

My secretary looked at me.

"That is all for now , Rafe. Make sure that the entire the country knows of the King's decision."

Later that evening i go over and see my mother.
"Mother i do hope you think that this match is a suitable one for i love Catherine very much.

I don't know what it is like to be a queen and i was hoping perhaps through the first couple of weeks or months of her queen ship could you help her and advise her mother?"

I smiled at him.
"Oh,Henry, of course, I will help Catherine. I remember how daunting it was when I married your father and I became Queen."

I motioned him to sit next to me. " Of course, your grandfather was the King of France so I grew up with royalty. However, to grow up as a Princess is one thing. To be queen is something entirely different. As for Catherine, kindness has not been something that has been given to her throughout her life. She has been used as a pawn and we now have evidence that she has been abused."

I stood and went to the wine table and poured myself and Henry a goblet. I handed him the goblet, saying, " This is an aged wine from the Rhineland's. They say that it has been aged to perfection and is sweetened with honey from Egypt."

Henry took the goblet and drank from it. He looked at his goblet and then smiled.
" Quite good, Marman, " He said.

I nodded and return to my seat.
"This was a gift from the Otttoman court of Suleiman. He sent it in congratulations for your sister's marriage."

"Henry," I began. " Catherine has never had father or mother. She doesn't know her own worth. It will be your job to ensure that she is loved and wanted. And that will also mean that your mistresses, if you have any, will need to be set aside for the time being."

I look at my mother.
"Of course mother i love Catherine very much and she will be well treated and like a queen.
Should anyone have anything against her or this marriage then they shall answer to me alone" i say sipping some more wine.
"Do you know where Catherine is now mother for i wish to see her and i would also like the ceremony to happen here at the chapel in Versailles and for all monarchs to attend.

" I shall send envoys to all the great courts Europe. I shall even send one to Henry of England. ," I said cheekily and Henry laughed.

"As for Catherine, she is in the library. She finds great solace there. I do believe that our future Queen is better educated than many royal Consorts. "

I kissed his cheek gently.
"I shall start with the invites for the wedding."

I pulled a book from the bookcase and sat upon one of the many reclining seats.
The book was a story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table> One of my favorites.

Of course, in Rome, I had to hide the copy given to me by one of my handmaidens since my uncle condemned it because it mentioned magic.

The bruise on my cheek was still a dark purple but the swelling had gone down but I still looked hideous.

Any day now, I was expecting to receive the letter, demanding my return to Rome.
Even though my uncle had given his permission and blessing for this marriage, once he hears of Suarez being treated like the common criminal he is, my uncle will retaliate.

I sighed and closed my eyes.
Happiness seemed so close that I could almost touch it.

I went to the library to find Catherine.
I saw her sitting down with a book and i go over to her.
"My dear Catherine mother said that i could find you here i see that you have taking a liking to my books and let my doctor's see to your face my lady. You will always be beautiful to me.
I have arranged for invitations to be sent out for our marriage in the chapel and you will be queen of France Catherine and you are beautiful.
