fannyfae: (Madame de Rochefort)
"I do not understand, Maman," I said, pushing my lip out petulantly, "Why must I stay here with Papa? He...." my eyes stung with the reality that my mother was leaving to journey for several months to her homeland and she was not taking me."

With an exasperated sigh, she laid aside the garment she had just removed from her closet and placed it on the bed. Before the maid could pick it up and fold it for her, my mother gave a gesture indicating that the young woman leave us alone. With a stiff curtsy, the pinch-faced girl, whom I only knew as Isabel, wordlessly left the room, closing the door behind her.

As soon as she was certain we were alone, my mother sat down on the edge of the bed and patted the space beside her. I dragged my feet and slowly sat next to her, my eyes stung no less and my lip had not retreated in the slightest in spite of this impromptu concession. "Françoise," she began, "I have already promised you, I will send for you soon.," she began, "but for now, I need you to understand. There is too much at stake in my homeland. Your father will be absorbed in the business, and you have Elise, oui?" Maman raised my chin with gentle fingertips."

"My heart hurts, Maman," I said, "I feel as if something terrible is going to happen and I have no idea what it is. Please say you will stay."

fannyfae: (within the cloak of night)
The relentless Scottish wind whipped my hair across my face as I made my way through the rocky crag to the forest glen. Glancing over my shoulder I could see my mother who was bent over a lichen covered rock, struggling to gather more herbs but also to keep what we had gathered from blowing away. Shaking her cloak back behind her, and not looking up from what she was doing she called out to me, "Frances, donnae go too far that I cannae see you, Lass."

"Yes, Mama," I said nodding with all the seriousness that I could muster. But my mind was already focused upon the forest that was calling to me. Inside that dark, beckoning place, just beyond the line of wooded depths, I knew there had to be a shelter, a break from the wind that I disliked with intensity. Read more... )

1. Know when to speak and when to hold your silence. - Everyone wishes to be heard, especially in the midst of confrontation and the careful negotiations surrounding a conflict. When you are in the role of a diplomat, it is best to say less than necessary. So many statesmen seem to get a thrill listening to the sound of their own voices without the slightest notion that the more they say the more common they appear. And the more that they say, the more foolish they appear. When this happens, any hope to manoeuvre the situation, let alone control it, is lost. It is a far more dangerous thing during negotiations to say foolish things than to actually do them. Silence and the appearance of interest often renders the other side unable to read you and to judge your intentions. Humans especially like to have a clear notion of where you stand on any given issue. When you can control exactly what you wish them to know and nothing more. Silence is mysterious and so many cannot stand the suspense of that mystery.

"Joie - lynn," I heard a man's voice, cooing, coming from the nursery. It was not Sebastien's voice, but it was no less familiar to my ears. "What a little miracle you are," the voice continued.

I turned the corner to see my infant daughter in the arms of the Fallen One. Azazeal. If he had noticed my entrance, he did not give any indication that he had. Instead, he continued to coo at and nuzzle my infant daughter, "Did you know that your Papa, he was once dead," he said as if he were telling her a grand Faerie tale, "but your Maman, well, she asked her friend for help so that she could bring back your Papa," he nuzzled her closer now, "You are just like her, Jocelyn - just like your Maman, in that you know exactly what you want. " he traced a line across her cheek and into the profusion of her dark hair with the back of his forefinger and bent to kiss her.

'No!'
