To Capture the King
Courage, she thinks as she places the finishing touch of rouse to her cheeks. So much is riding on days performance. With her uncles arranging she had managed to snap a spot in the performance for the foreign ambassador but this performance was for Henry as well. Anne Was about to give the performance of a lifetime to catch the gaze of the unhappy King and bring her family into untold riches. Taking one final look into the mirror Anne set her sash bearing the word perseverance and straightened her pendant bearing her monogram. This was it. The courtiers were starting to assemble and the trumpets are sounding the King’s approach. Opening the door she walks through to the performance hall and positions herself across from the King and smiles.
