How to tell a prince no? And such a prince! Henry was little given to listening and much accustomed to having his own way. Yet Emma was determined that she would not remain at court, no matter how the prince barked. She appreciated the prince's affection for her wit and loyalty. But she was set on going with her father to Spain, where he was to serve as ambassador. She always dreamed to travel to exotic, foreign countries and this was the opportunity of a lifetime. Today was her chance. The prince was to visit them at their estate. Away from his fawning courtiers, Emma might make him hear. Everything unfolded that day as she planned. After a walk in the garden and a delicious meal, they took to their horses to hawk. Atop a hill, the party dismounted. The prince loosed his bird first. Then Emma's turn came and she flung her arm into the air. The party watched as the bird soared, then dipped, finally returning to her arm. "Very lovely," Henry murmured. Emma was aware that his eyes were sweeping over her. She'd carefully picked this dress, fashioned of gold brocade and richly embroidered at her slender throat and waist. Transparent ruffs at her neck and sleeves gave the gown a soft finish. She knew the prince favored her in this dress above all others. "She is lovely indeed, Your Highness," Emma replied, deliberately misunderstanding. "But so are most creatures that are allowed to fly where their hearts lie." For a long moment, Henry stared at her. Then his stony features relaxed and he sighed. "It will be a long winter without such wit, Emma." "But with the spring, I shall fly back." Gently Emma transferred the hawk to his arm. "Keep her until then as my good faith pledge."
