Flavor of the Day: The Hunt

Author: lady_leia_solo
Story: The Mondian Chronicles (Archive/Index/Timelines)
Title: The Hunt
Challenge: Flavor of the Day: dyslogistic (conveying disapproval or censure; not complimentary or eulogistic)
Topping(s) and Extra(s): None
Word Count: 194
Summary: I have to say brother, I don't approve.
Rating and Warning(s): PG; Brief mentions of menstruation.
Note(s): This takes place in Nouvre (first month of the Mondian calender) 1117 AW. The month previous Henri dropped a bombshell on his court with his intentions to marry upstart lady, Anna Everart. Andre is Henri's younger brother by five years.

“I have to tell you brother, I don’t approve.”

Henri sighed deeply. The male members of the court were out for the hunt today. Henri was getting restless being trapped in the palace with rowdy men. But he also couldn’t stand to be around the Queen. Though she didn’t lash out at him like she did when he first told her of his plans, he knew Therese could play another hand. He just hoped it wouldn’t come to that.

“I’m not looking for your approval,” Henri said walking away from Andre. The air was on the cooler side which was normal for the month of Nouvre.

Andre came up behind Henri. He put his hand on Henri’s broad shoulder.

“Look I won’t pretend I don’t have biases. But won’t you rethink this? Therese is a good queen and she still bleeds. She could yet have a son.”

“You’ll get to like the Lady Anna,” Henri said turning his head slightly. “She takes a little getting used to.”

“I would say,” Andre choked out.

Henri spotted something in the distance.

“Let us talk no more of this,” Henri said moving out. “This is a hunt.”

It has to be difficult being the man with the power when those in the place of support and stregnth are so againt you. Such a thing has brought down so many kings over the years... Hopefully the hunt will take Henri's mind off it :)
