Hi darling! I can't say I'm anything but thrilled to be swapping back :P.

This chapter gave me an idea that I haven't thought about much before. I mean, we know how this ends, but I always assumed it had more to do with Helena and Venn than anything. Maybe what happens has anything to do but their love, or the complications that may come with it, and everything to do with the two very strong adults in their life that no longer see eye to eye? It's obvious Salazar is a different man that Rowena once knew, obvious that she worries what kind of influence that man has on his nephew, and again what will become of her daughter if she's wed to that nephew. Ahh it's all so tangled and I just want everyone to end up happily ever after but I know that can't happen :(.

When Helena got the flowers! I wanted to melt! I wanted to turn into a puddle and for those two just to live happily ever after and gah. So, I THINK your characterizations are coming through. I know what I think of them, but I don't know if that lines up to what you want them to come off as.

So, for me. I see Helena as someone who has that childlike nativity, and fights between what she wants and who she wants to make happy. She fits in well as royalty, but she isn't like everyone else. Venn.. I think he still struggles with a bit of the things his uncle has put in his head, but I also think he truly wants to make Helena happy.

Your details in this chapter were beautiful. Being around the scenery really gave you a chance to play and I *loved* it especially line about the bubbling of the brook. You have such an incredible way with words.



Author's Response: Hi Jami! I'm happy to see you back here!

I love that you like the tension among the adults in the lives of the young couple! I sort of see Rowena and Salazar as playing this little game of chess, or at least trying to, and Venn and Helena are the poor pawns. Wonder what will happen whey they figure it out and decide to go their own way together? Hmm...

I'm glad you liked the flowers. This chapter was so fluffy, and it was so fun to write. I just wanted to give Venn and Helena a chance to get to know one another more, although they didn't get a whole lot of that done, and to spend time together without the adults meddling. Obviously it was very scandalous for them to ride off on their own, but hey, it wouldn't be fun without a little rule-breaking :)

You're right, Venn and Helena are both struggling. Like any young adult, even in our own era, they haven't quite figured themselves out, nor have they decided exactly where they should fit in their regal society.

I'm so glad you liked this! Thanks again, love!
