Pendragon much preferred his Summer Court by the pool where red and white fish swam lazily. He protected these fish through royal decree. None, not even the royal family, were permitted to hunt the creatures. To do so would stain the banks of the pond and profane the waters of the sacred pool were squires cleansed themselves before knighting with blood.

He couldn't help but think that the overcast weather, however pleasant it was aside from the lack of sunshine, was a slight on his glory. Though even a king must wait on the pleasures of God when it came to weather. He let the displeasure wash out of his mind and simply watched the fish swim. The court and his royal family would join him soon enough, and then he would call the session to order and they would handle the business of the kingdom as God intended them to.

"Good day, your Majesty," meowed Seraphina happily as she entered the space of the court and bowed her head in greeting. She sat in her usual spot at the koi pond and waited for the session to begin. She was glad that her humans hadn't stopped her from leaving that day, even though they had wanted to play.

Stay, and I will break you down

Maelstrom breathed in the fresh air deeply. She was grateful that they were meeting outside again. The garage had felt stifling to her. "Greetings, your Majesty," the huge she-cat mewed politely, dipping her head to him before she sat down.

Do not let loyalty and faithfulness forsake you;

Valiant stood to the entrance of the garden, purring at her daughters as they entered the Court. She waited for her sons, tail twitching lightly as she watched some of the subjects beginning to arrive. If Arthur, Gareth and Cearnaigh didn't arrive soon, they were going to be late.

......

The eldest Prince entered the scene a minute or two after both of his sisters. He wasn't discouraged by the fact that a few other cats were already present; he had been fairly punctual, and, besides, his brothers themselves had yet to arrive. Arthur did not rush as he took his intended seat, greeting the assembled cats with a polite, "Good day," as he did so. The dark tip of his banded tail tapped against his paws in quiet anticipation. He found that Court sessions presented him with an insight to how the subjects of Camelot were faring.

The Crown Prince wondered if there would be any new additions to the expanding kingdom during this particular Court.


Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure
......

January 19 - We buried our son today, our youngest child, and while his death was ugly, we must not let it scare us from God. Abundant grace has restored him; a brand new body, and set him free from the torture. Finally rid of the cancer. Before the moment he left, he briefly wrestled from death, suddenly opened his eyes, said, "I SEE EVERYTHING! I SEE EVERYTHING!

Pendragon acknowledged the arrival of Dame Seraphine with a simple nod of his head. Maelstrom got hardly more than a twitch of his ear as the Princesses Ceridwen and Kelia arrivied. "Daughters." He purred by way of greeting. Then her offered "My Lady Queen." to Valiant. It was court and a time to be formal.

"Arthur, my son." Pen's voice was still full of purr when the Crown Prince joined him. "Do you have any expectations for what might be brought before us this day?"

***
Navati's tail slowly swooshed with happy anticipation as she made her stately way towards her king.

Since he seemed to be in conversation with his royal family, she neither spoke nor lingered there. Instead, she bowed deeply, but briefly, before padding away.

This marked her second Court Meeting as an actual Servant of King Pendragon, and Navati was excited. She was ever eager to make new connections, and to strengthen old ones.

The little Graces aren't all here yet, she observed. Wow, she must be early!

Outside the royal family, there were two she-cats present. One was unfamiliar, but not so the other.

"Maelstrom!" Navati quietly greeted the immense silver-blue cat, and seated herself beside her friend. She'd like to meet the lean, brown she-cat sometime, but strangers could wait. She was going to talk to her friend.

Because Maelstrom was so much larger than her, Navati leaned over to brush her cheek against her companion's shoulder; anything higher and she'd be forced to stand up.

"How are you faring?"

Love comes from the heart


Drusilla watched on top of a fence as the cats began to gather in the "king's" yard. The occasion seemed like a gathering, and she believed that Caligula had given her enough information for her to act accordingly. She had spent all day studying the kittypets, trying to get some of the sterile pet smell on her so she didn't stand out as much. She could only hope that all would go well.

She jumped off the fence, landing in the manicured lawn. She collected herself and trotted to the King Pendragon, following suit of the other cats present. "Greetings, your majesty," she said calmly, before finding an isolated spot to sit. From what she had gathered, "petitions" were heard at the court, and she figured she would speak then. In the meantime, she scoped the surrounding cats to make sure she wouldn't have any problems. She stopped on one black and white she-cat though, something about how she looked seemed...familiar. Due to this she sat looking at the cat from the corner of her eye. Something about the green of her eyes and the black of her pelt felt eerily familiar, and so she was on guard for this she-cat.

But so does hate

Valiant was pleased to see one of her sons had arrived. She waited several moments longer before she stood, deciding that she wouldn't wait for Gareth of Cearnaigh to arrive, and approached Pendragon. She nodded to him to show her respects as he greeted her before returning the greeting with a cheek rub against his shoulder, purring. "Dearest Husband."

Several other cats had arrived as well- the cat who had been helped her watch over her litter, Navati. There was Seraphina and Maelstrom. That was when she saw the strange, dark she-cat enter the court.

Instinctively, she bristled, her gaze narrowing even as she remained open for greeting other cats who might enter the Court. She never trusted new cats. Not even Aslan or Allister. Not since Paris and Meriwether and especially not since the kittens had been born. Yet she didn't say anything and as long as they she-cat kept her distance and kept up formality, she would continue to do so.

Bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.

"Perhaps there will be new subjects attending this Court," he mewed to his father. "God willing, the kingdom will continue enjoying this more favourable weather." No sooner had the Crown Prince finished his statement than the strange brown she-cat (named, unbeknownst to him, Drusilla) entered the Court. His amber eyes narrowed, not with hostility but with interest as he watched her take a seat. His mother's reaction stirred some suspicion towards this stranger on Arthur's part although the tailless she-cat thus far showed no signs of ill intention.

Pendragon listened to Arthur's answer. It was a good answer, just political enough to show the attention he paid, without being so political as to risk offense to anyone. He was nearly of an age in which Pendragon would be able to leave him in command of the country and take to the field and undertake the great quest that God required of him. "Well said, Arthur. It is only by God's grace that we are secure in our Kingdom and so blessed with such fine weather."

His eyes went to the stranger who'd arrived. There was a very faint sent of the wild lands to her fur, under a fresh coating of the Village's signature odor. He couldn't help but wonder how far she had come.


((As soon as the other two princes show up IC we will call to order and get things rolling.))

Maelstrom turned her head when she heard Navati's voice and felt the smaller cat against her. "Well enough," she replied. "How are you?"

As she spoke, Maelstrom noticed the new sable she-cat who had arrived. "Do you think we'll get many new faces today?" she asked Navati.

Seraphina eyed the newcomer to their sacred space. She noticed the change in Valiant's expression and had followed her gaze to the strange-scented she-cat. The bronze Mau shifted a little, so as to keep a better view of her and to be in a better position to move if needed to defend the kingdom.

Navati was rather put off when Maelstrom didn't offer a warmer welcome. The bi-color was a sensitive housecat, and a proud one. She liked to think that her presence was a gladdening one.

Though I think her a friend, perhaps she doesn't--- not yet, anyway, she reflected wistfully, then mentally shook off her vague hurt. Maelstrom likely didn't mean any slight, after all.

"That's good. Me as well. And I am glad to see you again," she replied. It's nice to see a familiar face, and to have a place to sit; but Navati's voice wasn't as excited as before. When the longhair mentioned new faces, though, she immediately perked up.

"Ooh, that'd be quite intriguing! Pleasurable, too. It always is, for me, meeting new folk. But I don't know. Perhaps Aliz will come. Or Allister --- d'you know him? I had a bit of chat with the young fellow 'bout a week ago. He's sworn into Camelot, see, but he's new, not just at court, but to Whitehart. --- Speaking of new faces, what do you make of her?" A black, short-furred tail gestured languidly towards the odd-eyed newcomer. She doubted Maelstrom had overlooked the stranger's arrival in this so-far small gathering, and wanted to know her thoughts.

Navati's nose was neither trained nor keen enough to detect a strangeness to the tall, tail-less cat's scent from this distance, especially since she'd partially masked the smell of her wildness with that of Whitehart. Not to mention that Navati wasn't particularly trying to scent the she-cat.

She was, however, interested in the lack of a visible tail. It must be more common than I thought. She was remembering that Aliz didn't have much of a tail, either.

Pendragon watched as the crowd settled and then cleared his throat. "It is with the authority granted to me by God himself that I do so call this session of the Court of the Cats of Camelot to order in the name of myself: His royal majesty King Pendragon of Camelot, the first of his name, Son of Benewick who was third of his name and who was in turn the son of Siege Perilous, Scions of the royal blood of the cats of camelot, so honored by King Uther in the days of yore."

The king waited for the final silence to settle upon the gathered crowd. "Also in attendance upon the court, Her royal majesty Queen Valiant of Camelot, First of her name, daughter in body to Johnathan of Shokopee and of spirit to Lord Socrates of Whitehart. Wife of King Pendragon I of the Cats of Camelot.; His royal highness Crown Prince Arthur of Camelot, the first of his name, Son of King Pendragon I who was in turn son of Benewick the third, Scions of the royal blood of the cats of camelot, so honored by King Uther in the days of yore.; Their Graces Prince Cearnaigh, Princess Ceridwen, Prince Gareth, and Princess Kelia. First their names, children of King Pendragon I and Queen Valiant I of Camelot. His Lordship Socrates of the Fief Whitehart begs the understanding of the peerage as he and his sons are attending upon a tourney this day." He brought the news that the respected Lord and the two knights had been drawn away to attend some competition found for them by the human who tended their needs. It was a shame, but the running of the kingdom could not wait on the whim of anyone less than a King.

"All those who wish to make a peitition to the court please rise and wait to be recognized." He bid the court open and waited to see who would rise and wish a chance to take the floor and bring some matter before the throne.


((Just RP your cat rising with the intention of making a petition. You don't need to wait your turn, all who wish to may rise at once and they'll be called up one at a time to speak. If you have any concerns about a potential petition, please PM me about it. It can be any petition as I think the court will run smoother if we handle everything in a lump right now.))

The soft babble of the other cats speaking of her did not go unnoticed, however she would not interfere. She was a neutral party, a messenger. The Cabal must be represented well, and with dignity. A last swooping gaze settled on the group as the meeting came to order.

At King Pendragon's lengthy introduction, she now understood the formality of the information she was delivering. It was a good thing she had spent her time memorizing her choice of words, one mistake could ruin it all. At the call of petition, Drusilla quietly rose on top of her long brown legs, careful to keep a respectful stature. She would wait her turn politely, but that did not stop a ball of nerves from growing inside her.

But so does hate

"I don't believe I've ever met Allister," Maelstrom admitted, "so you'll have to introduce me, and I do hope that Aliz comes." When Navati indicated the new she-cat, Maelstrom looked at her again and then back at Navati.

"Hmm I'm not sure yet," she mewed. "I think--" Maelstrom was cut off when Pendragon finally spoke and began the session. "I'll tell you later," she whispered quickly to Navati, then stayed quiet and waited for the list of titles to end. Maybe she'll join? Maelstrom wondered when she saw the sable cat rise.

Seraphina listened attentively as King Pendragon began and opened the floor to petitions, but she kept a potion of her attention on the tailless she-cat. Once the newcomer rose, Seraphina judged her form. She didn't seem a threat, not for that moment at least, but it could have been a ruse...

Berry:

Berry padded into the garden and looked for a spot. she saw a small opening beside a black and white she-cat. He padded towards her and sat down, and tried to start a conversation. "Hello" He said, "I'm Berry. Whats your name?" He noticed the blue collar around her neck, and a little silver ball that made an annoying noise whenever she moved. However, the call to rise and make a petition came before The she-cat could answer. He rose, trembling a little bit as this would be a very important moment in his life, and he did not want to mess it up. He went over some things to say in his head while he waited his turn.

((The cat is Navati, we have decided to roleplay a little bit between us. should be interesting, seeing as Berry is a semi-feral cat))

The first that Pendragon noticed rising was the stranger without a tail. Pendragon worried for a moment that the decorum would be harmed by opening with a petition from an outsider, which could take some time to resolve, when Berry rose to his paws. The King did not know the name of the young looking tom, but he did know that he'd seen him before in a previous session of the court."The throne recognizes the petition for audience of the gray tomcat standing next to Navati. Come forward and speak first your name, then the business you wish to lay before the court."

Berry stood and padded forward towards the king, trembling with excitement and nervousness even though he knew the words to say, as he had seen Navati swear her oaths last court session, although he forgot the name. "My name is Berry" He bowed down to King Pendragon, as he said the king's name. "King Pendragon" he said, trying to remember Navati's words as best as he could. "I swear my fealty to you and the royal family, if you deem me worthy.

Pendragon's ear flicked slightly. He couldn't help by think that berry was a tremendously undignified name for an adult. The tom looked to be out of his first year. "Your fealty may be sworn to Ruler and Kingdom. At the event of my death Fealty would have be to sworn again to my Heir." He clarified the finer point. "Do you, Berry, swear in good faith before God and the witnesses here to uphold and honor the laws of Camelot and the will of your Lord and King: Pendragon I?"

"Mmm-hmm," Navati hummed to Maelstrom, to show that she was listening, even though her yellow-green gaze was wandering around the Court. King Pendragon held most of her attention, of course.

But then her attention was distracted by an unfamiliar voice.

Surprised, she glanced over at the gray tom [Berry], and blinked. It took her a moment to place him- he'd been the wild-looking cat she'd stared at seen earlier! She opened her mouth to respond, but then shut it quickly.

The King was recognizing him.

Navati's ears pricked with interest when the young tabby [Berry] offered his fealty. He's more polite than I would have thought from the state of his fur! She noted critically. The housecat put much importance on appearance. She could tell that the stranger was nervous, but if he was a stranger to good breeding, then that was to be expected.

So . . . Berry? Cute name, she thought. It was something she thought a kitten would have, or maybe a nickname. She saw nothing unusual to it, and it was easy to remember, too.

She watched with baited breath as her King spoke, then stared raptly at the tom sitting next to her. Her tail tip twitched without her knowing, she was so impatient to hear what "Berry" would say!

Drusilla was a little hurt that she was not chosen first, despite being the first one to stand. She was here on time, and hoped she would be treated better then. No matter though, she lightly dipped her head in respect to the speaker...Berry was it? She didn't pay much attention to the details, it just seemed like he was joining this group. However, didn't these cats have more sophisticated names? Berry seemed like something a clan cat would be named. It was not her place to judge though, and she would continue to wait her turn.

Throughout all of this, she found herself uncomfortable under the brown she-cat's condoning gaze. Did she not approve of The Cabal? Did she know why she was here? If she was right, this was the Queen of this kingdom, and it would be best to be on her good side.

Berry paused for a few seconds, taking a deep breath, and whispered almost too quietly to hear

I do.


Then again, this time louder. He knew he was going to do this, but he had not thought it would be so hard to say those few words, to swear fealty to the king. the kingdom. the royal family.

"I solemnly swear, I do!"


He bowed his head again to the king and waited for the chocolate tom's response.

"Then I, Pendragon I, do so accept your offer of fealty. As you uphold your duties as my vassal, so shall I uphold my duties as your liege." Pendragon always tried to deliver those all important words with the dignity and grace that they required. They demanded a certain amount of Gravetas.

He scanned the group for standing cats. There was still only the stranger standing. "Be seated, Berry." He gave the gray tom a polite, if brief, dismissal. He was curious about the stranger though he was off-put by his Queen's tension. Best to get this done quickly. "The throne recognizes the petition for audience of the tailless cat. Come forward and speak first your name, then the business you bring before the court."


((Ryast: Don't forget to edit Berry's sheet to add "Camelot Follower". It's in the Special Options.))

Love comes from the heart


The king had just called her to step forward. This was it, the Cabal was counting on her. She took a confident step forward and spoke, " I am Drusilla, Lieutenant of Caligula's Cabal. I am here to represent the royal monarch Caesar Augustus Caligula, the first of his line, son of Syra the Elder, second of her name, Emperor of the mighty and ever expanding Rome in its glory and descendant of the great Jupiter, founder of Caligula’s Cabal, true upholder of the Republic of his subjects to right and govern the forest you see before you." she said calmly, gesturing her paw towards the nearby woods. She paused for a moment, allowing the cats to take in the information. " General Zane and I work closely with him, and it has been requested that I deliver a message to you. My Caesar has requested an alliance between our two great nations, and would like to know a date and time to discuss these matters. He is willing to travel here and speak to you in person at said time." she paused yet again, letting the information sink in. Hopefully she was doing well so far. Only time would tell though. " I understand if you are hesitant at this time, but I am more than happy to answer any question you may have, either from you or your subjects, if you so let them. " she finished, scanning her eyes throughout the crowd. Now that the hard part was done, she would wait for an answer. What would these cats think? Would they even care about what she said? Sh e refused to let her nerves get the better of her, and continued to stand proud and confident.

But so does hate


((wooh that's a long one. but it had to be done))

"This Caesar governs no forests within the borders of Camelot." Pendragon's tail tip flicked back and forth in irritation at the audacity of this claim made by the servant of this Caesar Augustus Caligula that he governed any forest that Pendragon saw from this spot. It was clear she was his Herald, trained in rote memorization with no understanding of the actual meaning of the words she spoke.

"Where is this Cabal actually located?" He dispensed with all pleasantries. Serious business was afoot and information needed to be gathered quickly. decisions would be made this night that may well have ramifications for generations to come.

Things were suddenly progressing far too quickly for Navati to follow.

She nodded approvingly to herself at Berry's response, recognizing her own words in this tom's oath of fealty. It surprised her, but most flatteringly, that this young tom would copy her, whether intentionally or not.

I'm no longer new at this! Navati realized happily. She was grateful to this Berry, if only because he had boosted her own confidence in her position in "high society".

Quite involuntarily, a purr rose from her chest, a quiet purr that soon faded away when the tail-less one began to speak.

Navati straightened in surprise, gaze flickering uncertainly to and fro between her King, his royal family, and the brown intruder.

She speaks like one of the Court! Like . . . a Queen in her own right. Shifting uneasily, Navati angled her ears to better hear the lofty words that this . . . Drew-sil-ah . . . announced. Try as she might, many of the phrases escaped Navati's understanding, but she knew words of power when she heard them.

"Lieutenant of Caligula's Cabal . . . royal monarch Caesar Augustus Caligula . . . Emperor . . . an alliance between our two great nations . . ."

Confused --- wasn't King Pendragon's Kingdom all there was? --- Navati's lime-green eyes looked up at Maelstrom to judge for the bigger she-cat's reaction to all these events. She refrained from speaking, as the housecat had no wish to draw the crowd's attention to her bewilderment.

Do not let loyalty and faithfulness forsake you;


Valiant's expression was openly pleased when Berry swore his oath before becoming solemn as the tail-less stranger approached. Perking her ears, she listened to what this Drusilla had to say. The more she listened, the more her fur began to bristle. Her ears laid back and before she caught herself, she had lifted herself into a half-crouch.

Of all the nerve! Thinking that they ruled the forests that lay within Camelot?! What did that.... that..... Valiant wasn't sure if this Drusilla was a savage or not, but it was obvious the tail-less one had no idea as to who she spoke to!

Quickly, she settled back on her haunches, ears still flattened and tail flicking in displeasure, but her King and husband obviously had the matter at hand. She glanced around at each of her kittens before they were riveted on Drusilla, ready to intervene if at any moment the other she-cat were to act without honor and attack Pendragon.

Panic rose through the she-cat's chest. She had said what Caligula had told her to say, why were they upset? After a moment's thought she think she realized the issue. "Your highness, I'm afraid there has been a misunderstanding. We do not claim rule over your great nation, I am saying that beyond these forests is where we lie. We settle near a farm along the main road's borders." she said, bowing her head apologetically. Was this her fault or Caligula's? She wasn't sure, but it had to be fixed. "I'm so sorry with the confusion, my way of words is not always to other's standards. I was sent here as a sign of trust to you. I am the Caesar's mate and mother of his sole heir, Princess Andromeda. We want to discuss becoming allies, due to our mutual respect to high standards and our ability to house and train civilized cats. We come in peace, not war." Hopefully this would clear the tension, but she was afraid. What would happen to her if she came back with bad news? She was not ready to find out.

"If I had any say in it, I would have our great General Zane speak. He is much better with words than I am."

But so does hate

"You spoke the words govern the forest you see before you. In future if you do not wish to claim another Kingdom as the property of your Caesar, then think before you speak." Pendragon's tail lashed at the females' backtracking and desperate attempt to cover her faux pas. To the point where she faithlessly and weakly doubted her liege before the monarch of another kingdom.

After a brief moment something she had said struck him hard enough that his tail stilled. "If you are mother to this Emperor's Heir why are you a mere Lieutenant and not an Empress?" Surely a bastard-born kitten was not the Heir to a kingdom that felt secure enough to be opening dialogues of alliance. Or perhaps that was why they sought alliance, to seek bloodlines better than this faithless Druisilla who dumped the shames of Caesar's Empire at the feet of another Kingdom.

The fact that the king had the audacity to not only publicly offend her, but to question her loyalty and heritage made Drusilla's blood boil. No matter how much she wanted to just lash out, she knew that violence would not solve this. She needed to calm everyone down and get back to the subject at hand. After quickly collecting herself, she responded with a calm and collected tone. "Those words I spoke were true, we live in the forests of Rome and you live in Whitehart. We do not have humans like you do and therefore do not stay in their homes. We live in those forests nearby, but are settled far from your borders. My claim did not attack Whitehart and I am sorry you mistook my words, your highness." Next question regarded her social standing, and her small nub of a tail flicked slightly in annoyance. Was she unworthy or of less value because of her title? She did not think so and only thought that these kittypets did not understand her duty. "I am not an Empress because I do not need to be. I am not territory that is owned, I am a respected she-cat who works hard to protect my allies. I serve as a Lieutenant because I see protecting those I care for as a top priority, and I choose to be a working cat. This allows me to bring more accurate and important information to my Caesar so we can serve and protect appropriately. The fact that I am willing to sacrifice myself for my kingdom is the ultimate loyalty and therefore makes my duty even more influential and important. If that is not a worthy thing to be proud of, then I don't know what is." she ended calmly, firmly believing what she had said. She had never even considered being called an empress, and supposed she should bring that up with Caligula. Her idea of this though was a lazy she-cat whose job was merely to look pretty and bear kits, and she was not willing to give up everything for that. Part of why she loved the Cabal is because she truly made a difference and influenced others.

"I listened only to the words you spoke, and they were not true. No forest seen from this spot belongs to this Caesar. On that we agree." Pendragon considered the next words.

"I do not own my Queen Valiant, but I married her and she rose in the ranks of Camelot from Dame. She will rule in my stead as the Queen Dowager should I pass before her time. The Crown Prince Arthur to follow us, and until he Marries and sires a child any of our other children would inherit from him." He waved his paw over, indicating the gathered royal family. Giving that a moment, he absently wondered about her true rank.

"Am I do understand that you have Married Caligula making this…" He hung up looking for the name he'd only heard once. "Andromeda a legitimate daughter born in proper wedlock to the family of the Caesar?" The facts must be straight. The female seemed confused as to what her position was, and the disservice she did herself if she took a lower rank than what she was entitled to. Did she think a King less willing to die thank a Lord simply because the King had more to loose?

Drusilla chose to drop the topic regarding where they were located at this point, because it was a silly and pointless argument. He would believe what he wanted, and she would just repeat the truth. It was a lost cause in her mind, and she could go on to more important topics if she left it behind her.

"I see, so you also believe in respect towards she-cats. I admire that, and appreciate you being so open about your family. If Caesar Caligula was to pass at this moment, it would be assumed that I or the General would take his place until the Princess was of age. When she takes the throne, she will select a tom she deems worthy to sire her kits, as her father did before her. Then she will select a worthy heir and so on. Should she have any future siblings, we would wait until all were of age until we chose a heir. We believe it is your actions that prove your worth, not your age or gender. We want wisdom, not necessarily age. However, Andromeda is a perfect line for the throne at the moment, and brings pride to our nation." she couldn't help but let a little smile out, she was so proud of her daughter. Working hard to fill a heavy duty. She was a beautiful young cat with so much potential, and she was sure she'd make any mother proud.

Drusilla did not know entirely what marriage was, but she had some general ideas of it. It was when two cats promised to take care of each other and their children, right? She supposed they were, and even if they weren't, she felt like saying yes was the proper response. "Andromeda is a legitimate daughter to the throne. I have sworn myself to Caesar Caligula, and him to me. I was the first to serve my Caesar and will continue to until I die, and we have the utmost respect with each other." She was slightly frustrated with his question though, and felt that she was being treated like a savage or something. Why would he even ask if her daughter was legitimate, of course she was! She let this pass, for conversation's sake.

"Now, is there anything else you wish to know about my kingdom?"

"I have no doubts that you have sworn fealty to the Caesar, but you have not married Caligula?"' Pendragon watched the female carefully. She didn't seem to understand anything of proriety and seemed only able to parrot words of loyalty to her Liege and try and claim glory from his table for herself. "Nevermind. I shall ask him myself. Carry word that His royal majesty King Pendragon of Camelot, the first of his name, Son of Benewick who was third of his name and who was in turn the son of Siege Perilous, Scions of the royal blood of the cats of camelot, so honored by King Uther in the days of yore does so invite Caesar Caligula of Rome to treat with him at the southeast corner of Whitehart Pine Plantation under the trees three days hence at the noon hour. This place is outside the borders of both Camelot and Rome, as far as I can ascertain, and shall provide a fair and neutral place in which we can begin more proper discussions." Pendragon waited on her assent, knowing that she would do as she was bidden.

Navati's heart skipped a beat.

Her head snapped back towards the tall brown she-cat, this . . . Lieutenant Drusilla.

Had she said . . . Zane? Navati frowned, but any thought of having misheard was swept from her mind when the Lieutenant repeated the name, this time with a title. General Zane?

It couldn't be her brother . . . could it? She did say they lived in the woods, without humans . . . Her delicate pink nose wrinkled at the thought. That sure sounded like something Zane would do, savage and untamable tom that he was.

The bi-color she-cat restrained herself from blurting out her worried questions. It wouldn't do to interrupt her King, who seemed agitated. But the thought of missing her chance to learn about her littermate's whereabouts, even if it was the slimmest of chances that this General Zane was the same cat she'd grown up with, was too much to bear.

When Drusilla asked if there was anything else to be asked of her about her kingdom, Navati rose to her feet.

"Pardon," she called out clearly, with a semi-apologetic bow towards King Pendragon. "But I have a question." Cream paws padded closer to the tail-less Drusilla, her apprehension clear in the tense movements of her sleek body. ". . . did you say Zane?"

As the king further inquired her relationship status, she began to speak. "We have done the equivalent, you see we do not have one set religion so it is not exact..." she started, but was soon cut off by the king. How rude! She was confused on why Caligula chose this nation to unite with, he left a bitter taste in her mouth. "I shall deliver the message promptly. You will see him in three days." she bowed, although at this time she didn't want to. This whole ordeal had better be worth it, she would talk to Caligula once she got home. Still, she couldn't help but feel that this was a bad idea.

Drusilla began to leave when the she-cat that caught her attention earlier spoke. She had forgotten to let the people ask her questions too, and was surprised that the she-cat had the bravery to ask. "Yes, Zane is the General of Rome. A black tom with green eyes, has a white mark here," she said this last sentence as she gestured to her throat. She was in fact surprised that no one had asked about the Centurions or how their government works, so she was glad to talk about something else besides if the child she birthed was worthy or not.

"Why do you ask, madam? Do you know of him?"

"If you wish to chat you can tend to it following the conclusion of the court." Pendragon's voice was hard when he spoke. The fur of his hackles had risen at her mention of no set religion. If he and Caligula were to make an alliance clear boundaries needed to be established, and the matters of religion would need to be addressed. That a potentially base-born heir was all they had to their name, perhaps he had best ask the good Sister Faye to join him. It could well be a time for evangelism.

"There are other matters that must be attended to. With Petitions addressed and no more awaiting recognition we shall move forward to the business of the Court. The Throne askes His lordship Aslan of Fief Von Monte, son of Mufasa of the Tribe Von Monte, to come forward." He would show this female from afar how proper cats addressed matters of family.

Navati's legs crumbled, and she sat down abruptly, less gracefully than she would have liked.

It IS him! Zane lives...and as a General? Of a Kingdom in a Forest? She had to find out more.

Ears flattened in dismay at Pendragon dismissal of further "chat". Navati supposed that just because Drusilla had said that she welcomed questions didn't mean that King Pendragon did during his own Court.

Once she had gotten over her shock, Navati nodded in assent at her King's command, her face as smooth as she could make it. But while the Court was waiting for Sir Aslan's approach, Navati rose quietly to her paws once more and glided over to Drusilla. She could move almost soundlessly, she had found out years ago; if she moved just right, her bell wouldn't chime.

"I would talk to you later, after Court," she murmured briefly in Drusilla's ear. "About my brother, Zane."

Seraphina had to keep her fur flat while the tailless she-cat spoke of her kingdom and how her leader wished to meet with the king. She didn't feel comfortable with the thought. If this Ceasar wanted to send a messenger, why had he sent such a poor one? Was it only because she had birthed his child?

Seraphina's tail flicked and she shifted her weight. She'd made herself stay seated during the exchange rather than personally guard the royal family in case the stranger had attacked. She was glad when King Pendragon moved on from that petition.

When Drusilla mentioned Zane and Navati spoke up, Maelstrom looked at her friend with great curiosity, but kept her mouth shut for the moment. They didn't need Pendragon reprimanding both of them.

”Lord Aslan, you are a stalwart and noble member of this court and serve the realm well in all things.” Pendragon began, his mood visibly lightening and his face brightening. He had intentionally told no one of his plans save the Queen and was excited to bring them before all. ”It is because of your unfailing and unshrinking service that I honor you by offering the paw of my daughter, Princess Kelia, in betrothal, that the two of you will one day unite in Marriage and she stand beside you as the Lady of Fief Von Monte.”

Love comes from the heart


The way the king had treated not only her, but also his subjects was terrible. Why on Earth would you choose to live here? Perhaps she should talk with Caligula about offering cats to leave here and join them, so they could live freely.

Drusilla's ears swiveled at the she-cat's remark. Did she say she was Zane's sister? This was most definitely important, and she chose to stay until this "court" was finished to talk with the civilians. Either way, she was sure Zane would like to know that his sister was safe.

At the king's second announcement, Drusilla was utterly disgusted. Why this child was Andromeda's age, and the tom looked older than herself! And they were to be wed without her consent? How dare he claimed that his she-cats were not property here, he practically sold a kitten to have kits to this adult tom! No matte how hard she tried, her fur stood up on end and a small scowl appeared on her face. She would be sure to include this in her report, these cats seemed barbaric compared to her great land. Why, even the Clans at this point seemed more civilized! Her eyes shifted to the kitten, and an apologetic glance was directed towards the young cat. The poor child, she could only hope that this tom would have some sense in him and reject the king's offer.

A betrothal between Princess Kelia and Lord Aslan? Seraphina couldn't have thought of a better one herself, though she felt a secret envy for the princess. The Mau squashed those feelings as if they were insects and let herself feel glad for the child. Seraphina hoped the wedding wouldn't be too soon.

Pendragon's announcement set off a mix of feelings inside Maelstrom. She couldn't say anything against the betrothal, but she wondered how soon Kelia and Aslan would be married. It's usually a year and a day in the stories, she thought, recalling some old tales she'd heard.

"And with that happy business concluded I ask for any final petitions. Should you fail to rise now you will not have another opportunity to speak until the next session of the court." Pendragon spoke the words that served as a prelude to closing the court, assuming no new business rose.


((Court will be closed in about 72 hours if no one else has any petitions.))

i find my freedom in the captivity;

Despite her utter shock at the "happy business" of little Kelia being betrothed already, and to Sir Aslan of all cats --- not that he wasn't of noble bearing and station, as a Baron, but he was just so wild, and compared to the Princess, so . . . old --- Navati retained her presence of mind to observe her surroundings.

Thus the look of disgust on the tail-less cat next to her did not escape her unnoticed. Navati's yellow-green eyes flickered askance at the scowling Drusilla's face, but she did not speak or even allow her confused, mixed emotions to show through.

One had to be lady-like, after all.

The only sign of her discomfort was a slight shifting of weight.

Navati listened avidly to King Pendragon, then, when he was done, hurried to speak before he could conclude the entire Court meeting.

"My King!" Her clear mew cut above the throng, and her cream paws carried her forward a couple of steps. Navati spoke earnestly, "I would volunteer my services at this meeting between the two . . . kingdoms. If you will it." She had hesitated at the word "kingdoms", because Navati still wasn't sure about what sort of society the obviously ill-bred Drusilla represented.

She did want to attend, but meeting Zane was forefront in her mind when she spoke her request aloud. Oh, Zane, what have you gotten yourself into now?

Though your service to this kingdom has been both steadfast and true I cannot risk offending another monarch by including a peasant amongst those going to attend upon this meeting." His voice was grave, and he tried to make the seriousness of the matter carry through the way he spoke.

"This meeting is about the future potential friendship between Camelot and Rome. There would be no opportunity for you to socialize with this Zane you are so interested in. You would only find yourself scolded to silence should your frequently inadvisable desire to speak came over you." There was some fondness in his voice. Perhaps it was ill-placed in a peasant, but her tendency to speak her mind despite propriety was something to be encouraged when it was handled in the way Navati generally handled it. She had been a wise choice to enlist to help with the Royal Litter, which had been large beyond Valiant's easy management. A clear sign of God's favor if this Drusillia was able to bear Caligula only a single kitten.

((*grins wickedly* All I can think of right now is a Cartoon Navati trying to fly a biplane, crying out, "May Day! May Day! Gonna crash! XD Her ego might be a bit flattened after this. Hopefully. ;)

I'll wait a bit for some one to post, if they want to, before Navati speaks again.))

((Fae, if we don't get a response from someone else in the next... Oh... 24-48 hours I'm going to call it and close the session. It's pretty died down and all of the business, save Navati's desire to go with, has been settled.))

((I'd wanted to talk to Banana's Drusilla, but we can always do that on another thread. Either way, I can't post right now.))

((I want to close the formal court. Not close the thread itself. It'll be left open for as long as people still want to do post formal session RP.))

((I think another thread between Dru and Navati would be best. She was pretty publicly dissed about her lineage and social standing, and probably doesn't want to stick along much longer than she has to. However she would accept an invitation to talk elsewhere. She's pretty gullible.))

"With final petitions concluded, I, King Pendragon I of Camelot, do herby close this session of the Cats of Camelot." Pendragon gave the final proclamation of the session of court. Then he turned to Kelia. "I hope that the shock was not too great, Daughter. I thought you would enjoy the surprise. Soon enough Ceridwen will enjoy a similar one." His voice was full of a purr as he spoke.

i find my freedom in the captivity;
***
Cold claws wrapped themselves around her heart . . . and squeezed.

Navati's breath caught, and after King Pendragon had finished rebuking her, she bowed very, very low to her Sovereign King, hiding her face to the world until she felt she could conceal her mortification and hurt.

A peasant . . . is that all he thinks of me? She'd thought King Pendragon approved of her; after all, he'd approached her and asked her to help Queen Valiant with the royal litter!

Was she never going to rise from this lowly station?

Pride still stung, a blank-faced Navati retreated back to the side of Maelstrom. She looked hard at her cream paws, and waited for the cold prickles under her pelt to fade.

How humiliating...

The proud she-cat was too hurt at the present moment to realize that there had been some warmth in the King's voice, that he'd described her service as steadfast and true.

She wasn't going to even think about moving or looking up until she was sure she had her composure back.

So Banana, how about we do another thread? I'm not sure how you want to do this; Navati's pretty shell-shocked right now... You or I can either make a new thread right away, or your Drusilla can approach Navati in this thread.

Nagini: I'd like Maelstrom and Navati to talk, too.  ;)

Love comes from the heart


Drusilla couldn't help but overhear the conversation with the king and Zane's sister. The manner in which the she-cat was treated further strengthened her opinion on this nation. The broken bow was enough to make her heart break. She knew she had to talk to her.

"Miss, you said you wished to talk, about Zane?" she said cautiously, treading lightly towards the she-cat. "For the record, my Caesar would not be offended by your presence. We may not be of "worthy blood" or whatever your king said, but we have respect." she said proudly, but stopped as she realized where they were. She gazed nervously over her shoulder, not wanting to get herself or Zane's sister hurt.

"I think we should take this talk elsewhere. I won't be traveling back for a little while yet, so we can go where you feel comfortable. I'll keep you safe." she said in a firm yet lighthearted tone.

"I promise."

But so does hate

This stranger certainly was bold! And obviously a ruffian of the forest.

Navati had to convince herself of this; otherwise, she might be deceived into trusting (!) this . . . herald? empress? Queen? Tailless Drusilla.

With her pelt still prickling with cold shame, Navati cut a decidedly cool glance at Drusilla, and gave a tense shake of her head. With a slow roll of her lime-green eyes (anxious eyes, right at this moment), Navati conveyed that right now, she did not wish to risk anything, not even speaking.

Besides, the sable she-cat might be below her station. It was hard to tell. Shame made the black cat smart with pain; Navati wasn't gracious when hurt.

But she'd talk, just talk, to this intriguing newcomer, once she felt calmer. The "Lieutenant" knew Zane, and that . was. that.

Navati edged closer to Maelstrom, feeling safer with her large, civilized friend nearby.
