Gwyn was lost in thought, thinking heavily on her foolish brother and Gunhagel. Her mind was always filled with thoughts of her childhood home - she was always considering ways to remove her brother. She had a son now and needed to think on his advancement. Richard was the second son of a Lord and all he would gain was knighthood. And that was not enough for her golden-haired lad. He deserved better - he deserved a title. And so she spent her moments alone in thought, plotting ways to remove her brother and stepson...to give her boy Gunhagel and Ellesfield. It was what Richard deserved; prior to her brother Bartholomew's birth she had been her father's heir. In any case both her brother and stepson were weak and should he lovely son be anything like his mother, then he would not. Even her father, dear Lord Wynter, would have preferred to have his eldest daughter and most favoured daughter as the future Lady of Gunhagel.
Unwilling, Gwyneth tore herself from thought. It was a matter for another time, for when she would return to Ellesfield and gaze upon her boy. And she would return in a week, after the celebrations had ended. Then she could return to her plots. Her mind, as her father advised, required respite. She wasn't all too hasty to cease her plans. How could she? With each day that passed her son would be known only as the second son of a Lord. She couldn't bare that whilst her stepson lorded over the Estate with a weak hand.
Her plots had, thus, returned as quickly as they left. Yet this time she let them get the best of her; she didn't seem to notice that there was a small rose bush in her path. She tripped and, shocked, she remained there, on her knees with dirt on her damask gown. She gazed down at the roses she had brutally murdered. She could feel her already stern look hardening as she looked up, praying that no one had seen her fumble. And to her great unhappiness, there was someone there.
