Staring out the window of the carriage, she realized today was the big day. They would finally be arriving at Edu's house! She was arriving with Joselyn, her personal best friend who she shared a lot of her thoughts and feelings with.. that is when she chose to share them.

These days it was very hard for her to let anyone hear or know about her feeling.. she held her own very well, especially her emotions. Growing up with her brother until he was about 7 were some of the best days of her life. But now he was gone.... somewhere training with Uncle Raider. She was sure if she saw him today, she would be both surprised and proud of him. Her brother was always bright and extremely observant since he was very young, so she knew it would come in handy when he grew up. She didn't know if he had yet learned the truth about their father, she always felt that if she were to tell Sajjhe, he might include her with the pain he felt.. that maybe as a sister she should have told him about his father and not let him have those dreams and hopes of having a father to begin with.

But she could never bring herself to do that to him.. to break the ice and tell him that his father was dead. She had a different father than him, and both of them were dead. Her father, his father... both dead. She knew the pain that came with the knowledge of never seeing your father again. The only thing they really had was their mother Myst, and now... now Sir Eduard. She never really got a chance to talk to Uncle Raider...

She sighed, and promised herself that later this evening after settling into Eduard's house, she would write Sajjhe a letter.. she dreaded it, yet wanted to very badly.

Finally the driver announced that they were at their destination..
Giving her mother a goodbye kiss, she stepped out of the carriage, grabbed her bags and smiled at Joselyn,

Come Joselyn, we're going to be late. She looked back at her mother and sighed, waving and then turned back around to Eduard's gates.

Heart racing, simply unsure about this, yet anticipating all at the same time felt like a really big adrenaline rush.. she smiled at the guards


Hello I am Neasa Amber de L'eau, please tell Sir Eduard that I have arrived?

For the second time this day Boudewijn tries to shruck away the niddle-nod he is experiëncing. He is an old warrior. He fought against the invading French a few years ago. It were the days the dutch had solidarity. Much is different nowadays. One of the council members robbed the public treasury and fled heading south. The current Countess favor's a tight regime. Boudewijn could never understand why his master, sir Eduard, keeps on being positive under these circumstances. The Teutonic knight shows himself to be a real knight, a man of honor, protecting the week and fight against injustice. You can tell Boudewijn is proud of his master. He is standing in bright polished armor in front of the castle gates next to the young lad Simon.

From a distence Boudewijn hears the crackling sound of carriage wheels on cobble stones. As this is the only road towards the castle of Volendam there will probably arrive some guests. With his spear Boudewijn pokes the young lad to have him on his guard. Typical his master to hire the son of a poor Volendam family to serve at his castle. The master never asked him to tutor the boy, but his eyes spoke like a thousend words. Like his eyes always seem to speak and mirrored his thoughts. Boudewijn quickly helps Simon to stand with a straightend back, chin up in the air and confident look in the eye.
The carriage comes into their line of site. Boudewijn tries to define wich noble is arriving at the gates. The Baron of Edam?, the father of the master? Maybe the Lord of Purmerent, a fellow teutonic knight of the master? Or maybe the Count of Arkel, the masters uncle? The knight who once trained the master as his squire?

When the carriage arrives in front of the gates Boudewijn looks at the young girl stepping out... She introduces herself to them as Neasa Amber de L'eau... Boudewijn suppresses the tendency to poke Simon who seems to stare at the beautiful girl. "Young boy's and their hormons" he grumbles inaudible.
Hello I am Neasa Amber de L'eau, please tell Sir Eduard that I have arrived?
Boudewijn makes a small bow at the lady. She speaks in a language he does not know... it is not french, that is a good thing... But.. the lady is a de L'eau... The family of the former public prosecutor who resigned the council and turned back to his roots of robbing and killing?
Again it is not his problem, the master will deal with that. The Lord of Volendam never judges people for some reason.
After mumbling some dutch/english mix of words he tries to explain they have to wait while they notify sir Eduard of her arrival. He turns to Simon.

Simon.. Ga het kasteel in en haal de meester, vertel ze dat er gasten van de de L'eau familie aan de poort staan.
(translation: Simon go to the castle and notify the master, tell him guests from the de L 'eau family arrived at the gates)

With an interested look on his face Eduard is sitting in the Ridderkamer, Ballroom of the castle. While enjoying a good glass of Portugeese Port he listens to the three young troubadours that practise one of their songs. Last few weeks he prepared himself for the arrival of Myst's daughter. His good old friend asked him to be her daughters mentor. What he never told Myst is that a few days before his death, the girls father wrote him a letter concerning the girl, Neasa. He had the same wish Myst had. In Eduards mind it was the voice of Jah wich spoke to their hearts. From the moment Eduard had met Mysterie he saw a kindness in her heart. Even when others could only see her rough appearence, he could only see the good in her. He never condemned her of her actions, instead he motivated her on doing that what is right, inspiring her to keep a clear consience to Jah. The joyful sounds of the musicians fill the room and it's nice acoustics.

After a few soft knocks on the door Eduard looks in the eyes of the young guard Simon. The blush on his face tell's him enough. His words are only the confirmation he interpret his facial expression.
Heer.. Een jongedame staat aan de poort, ze is gekomen met een koets.. ik denk... dat ze niet alleen is gekomen...

(translation: Sir.. a young lady arrived at the gate, she arrived by carriage.. i think... she has not arrived alone..)
Eduard listens with a smile on his face and walks up to the young man. He places his hand on the shoulder of Simon and squeezes it softly.
Ik neem aan dat de dame niet een heel leger heeft meegenomen Simon? (Translation: I assume she did not bring a whole army with her Simon?)
The acoustics of the room resonates his loud laugh a few times. A sound that is heart a lot of times in this place.
Laten we er direct heen gaan. (Let's get there at once) He tell's the young man still with his hand on the shoulder.
Eduard is proud of the young man. He tries hard to provide the locals with jobs and a nice life. The times are hard, the dutch economy is not blossoming at the moment. But Eduard is doing well and he makes an effort to help out if possible.

Together with Simon Eduard walks up the the castle gates. He supresses the tendency to run. He is curious about the guest that arrived. When he walks through the gates he notices the carriage and before it a young girl is standing with her bags. He walks up to her and winks at Boudewijn when he passes him. He makes a small bow and smiles at her. The appearence of the lady is clearly that of Myst combined with her father Atzo.

Welcome to Volendam young lady. You must be tired from your journey. Please come in and let me take your bags.
He turns towards the two guards. Simon, help the lady with her bags and Boudewijn please escort the carriage to the stables.
Again he turns towards Neasa and smiles at her.
At the castle, take your time to freshen up. he says while walking her back to the castle. After that i would like to hear about your trip. Is your mother here also? Don't tell me she is still in the carriage sleeping hey... With a nosy glance he looks at the carriage. Myst will never allow her daughter to travel alone.

Neasa chuckled to herself as she noticed the young boy staring slightly at her. She waited patiently, and eagerly for the presence of Eduard to show himself. She had to keep herself from bouncing up and down with excitement when she saw him coming her way.

As he made her way to her, she curtsied politely to him I am very happy to be here, Sir Eduard, I have been waiting a long time for this pleasure to meet you and the opportunity has finally come at last.

She looked back at the carriage, and then back at Eduard, Yes my mother came, I'm not sure if she's going to come out or not, she chuckled and looked at the young boy who was to help her carry in her bags, Thank you very much. She then turned back to Eduard and smiled Tired, yes.. but more eager to explore and chat with you, Sir. She laughed heartily, this was going to be an exciting time, and she hoped that Sir Eduard was just as eager and happy to have her here as she was happy to be here.[/i

She looked towards the castle and then back at Eduard,
I would like to freshen up, yes thank you. Do I have a tour guide? She winked

Busyness whirled around the room, packing Neasa's things along with her own, loading up the carriage, laughing and talking about the exciting things they would do at Sir Eduard's house, Joselyn was happy her best friend had invited her to come along.

Neasa had always shared all her secrets with her, and Joselyn had always tried her best to help Neasa with all of her troubles. She couldn't help but grin at the thought of sharing each other's thoughts and secrets of the things they would discover in Holland.

Waving goodbye to Myst, and promising her she would take good care of Neasa, she settled in beside her in the carriage, "All ready!" she squeezed Neasa's hand and smiled, "We're finally doing it."

After what felt like forever, they finally arrived at Sir Eduard's place. The sight of it made her mouth drop open. Never before had she seen a place such as this. It was beautiful! Stopping before the gate, she giggles as she could see the look the young guard was giving Neasa. Getting purely amused by it, she decided to stay in the carriage and let Neasa get all the attention. A few moments later, a man peeked his head in the carriage, who she guessed must be Sir Eduard. She waves shyly at him, giggling softly, "Greetings, Sir."

A waving hand is the first thing he notice from within the carriage. The hand seems to belong to another young lady. Eduard has no clue why she stayed in the carriage. Greetings, Sir.. the girl says. Eduard grins and thinks of a nice reply. As nothing comes to his mind he just offers her his hand to help her to step out the carriage.
Perhaps the lady want to come into the castle? The stables can be chilly at night.
Again Eduard offers her a polite smile. But.. who might you be? He speaks just to tease her. He heart al about Neasa´s friend who will accompany her during her stay at Volendam.
After helping the girl out Neasa speaks about her eagerness to explore. "Just like her mother" he thinks.. probably a thought he'll be thinking for many more times to come. When they reach the castle's entrance door Neasa confirms her desire to freshen up. Off course the girls would want that. They just arrived from a long trip from Scotland. Eduard turns to Neasa and looks with a serious glance.
Neasa, i'm sure we will have enough time to show you and your friend the castle and the Volendam surroundings. During your stay i expect you honor my hospitality. We will talk about it later, but as long we can agree to that we will have a good time and learn a lot from each other.

While talking they enter the castle.. The music from the ballroom greets them when they enter. It is the reason Eduard invited the three young man to his castle. Their happy sounds often breaks the silence. Eduard smiles... this is home.. he hopes the girls will experience it the same way in a while. Eduard looks at his chamberlain waiting for them in the hall. Eduard turns to the girls.
Well young ladies, my chamberlain will escort you to your rooms. I´m sure they are to your liking. If not... with help of my sisters they will be. Please take your time to freshen up. When your ready i want to hear everything about your trip. And i´m sure you both have a lot of questions yourselves.
Eduard smiles at the girls and nodd´s towards the old man. Oww and girls, he yells at them when they follow the chamberlain. Just follow the music to find me...

Neasa turned around as she had noticed that Joselyn had not yet come out of the carriage. She had been ingulfed in the excitement of seeing Eduard, and the house she almost forgot about her other surroundings.

She laughed at Eduard's honest tease and winked at Joselyn, Yes Joselyn, please do come out of there already!
As Eduard turns to her with a serious glance, her facial expression goes more sober and politely inclines her head after him speaking

Of course Sir Eduard, I do not wish to dishoner you in any way, and I appreciate your hospitality very much so. I anticipate getting to know each other

As she follows Eduard into the house she gasps slightly with pleasure at the music being played "Oh what a beatiful sound, they are playing, I love music." She grinned at Eduard, "I don't think my mother told you I have a gift for singing" She winks. She listens then to the directions given from Eduard, and nods her head as she follows the chamberlain, grasping Joselyn's hand in her own and then laughs as Eduard speaks once more as they go to leave But of course, Sir, I will remember that.

She giggles softly over at Joselyn and then excitedly follows after the Chamberlain
