This is the story of Isabel Nevillle, I decided to write this story because Isabel lived in very turburlent times and is little known about so I can fantasize easily
So this is my chapter and please enjoy! :)
Isabel was sitting uncomfortably perched on a tree branch skimming her pen along her paper confidently, drawing was a great talent of hers and the harpischord as well as the flute, she also enjoyed needlwork but could sometimes tire of it quickly, she was no ordinary lady and daughter of an earl but she was his heir; her father Richard Neville The 16th earl of Warwick wasn't capable of bearing children anymore so he had no son, he only had 2 girls; Isabel Neville now almost 14 and Anne now almost 8 who were great company and could use them as pawns as much as he liked, thought Isabel.
Isabel jumped of the tree and accidently hit her brownish-auburn hair on the bark, she peered at her home; Middleham castle where she met the three handsome sons of the duke of York; Edward, George and Richard. Edward earl of March, Ulster, Cambridge and late duke of York was the heir of his father's properties he was cheeky yet very intelligent outgoing and flirted a bit, yet he was very handsome with brownish-blondish hair and a dashing smile, Richard wasn't as muscular and lean as his brother edward was yet he was shy, polite and clever but it was george who had truly caught isabel's eye he was fairer-haired and more sensible than Edward yet More charming and outgoing then Richard, they usually strolled through the gardens together and meet in the hallways after bedtime and he would Pick roses and court her charmingly, he spent his childhood there along with Edward and Richard, her father was like a father to them he was very important in their upbringing and helped Edward defeat Henry of Lancaster and usurp the throne! They were gone from
Middleham castle since 1460 when Edward was king and George became Duke Of Clarence and Richard became Duke Of Gloucester and they now live at court; George is now 15, Edward now a lusty men of 22 and young Richard only 12. His father occasionally brang her to court in order to fling her in front of great nobles including the king himself, but she knew that the king would not find an interest in her; despite being a great beauty because she was only 14 years old. He will defiantly marry a beautiful and clever wife that is his age and despite her father's constant alienating with France and other countries he might choose his bride for love. Isabel herself hopped the he didn't Marry her because she wanted to marry George, she was sure that George felt the same, May was about to come in a few days and god knows what the magic of May will bring love to a lucky person, that love will cause the country to run in perils perhaps Thought Isabel
Isabel arrived at court, there she saw everybody going back and forth with manuscripts, Papers or just talking to
Their companions. Then the isabel's surprise the music began and seated on the grand chair was King Edward IV otherwise known as Edward the rich because of his unnecessary expenses on palaces, clothes, jewels and many other frivolities as others say and because of his inherited wealth that made him extremely rich compared to most kings in christiendom. Beside him Isabel's father was talking to him perhaps of an important matter, Until her father caught her eye and came forward to greet her, his face was ruined with age and he looked older than his 6 and 30 autumns.
'Isabel' said he 'how fare you'
'Fine, Your grace I say and then sink into a curtesy none of us can call our parents 'pa' or 'mama' in public. When I catch the eye of the king I deep in another curtesy and say 'Your Majesty'
'Rise' says King Edward 'You have grown Isabel, now you are very beautiful, almost 4 and 10 years'
'thank you' I say blushing
'How are your studies going' father inquired
'Better than usual, the tutor you sent me is very good' O answer truthfully
'Very well then' He replies
He jestures an arm movement and my page boy comes to help Anne and I into the carriage
I look at the beautiful Greenwich palace and then we turn to leave for Warwick castle.
That was my prologue of the other Neville sister, I hope you liked it, review and suggest events that I can write about and how I should develop certain characters! Please review and I hope you liked it, If you're interested in the wars of the roses like I am than read 'Princess of York' that is about princess Cecily and it is in first person so please write and tell me
If I write better in 1st or 3rd person! Cheers :D
