The carriage jerked and Anne’s body swayed along with it, she was used to the jerking they had been traveling for at least a day but she would of much preferred if they had ridden horses or at least been allowed to stop so she and her ladies could of stretched her legs. Turning her head she looked with golden orbs at the young women sitting next to her. The women’s face was pale and fear was clearly written all over her face, poor Elizabeth. Slowly Anne reached out and touched Elizabeth’s hand, smiling in a reassuring manner when the girl looked at her. Anne could understand the girl’s fears, she too was scared but she had to place a brave face on things for if she allowed her fears to take a hold of her she would break down and cry and then Elizabeth would break down. Tears wouldn't help anyone. Across from the two a middle age women sat napping off and on, this was her governess Catherine. A sigh escaped Anne’s lips and she turned to the curtained window and reached out and pushed back the curtain and leaned forward a bit. Peering out she saw woodlands passing them by, a solider on horseback rode alongside them. The sky was dark with clouds and they threatened rain. She couldn't believe she was being forced to leave her father and brothers side, just because the enemy was getting closer. They were placing her in a nunnery, the one place where she would be utterly safe for no man would enter the house of god. “My lady, oh my lady get away from the window!” Catherine’s voice broke into Anne’s thoughts and in a flash Anne was back in her place gazing at Catherine. “The enemy could be out there right now!” She cried in fear. “Oh if they got a hold of you my lady…” Her hand flew to her breast and she swayed for a moment threatening to faint. “The enemy is brutal and they are a backward people, very violent as well, it’s even said their leader has many women and that he cares nothing for anyone, a cold and evil man.” She shook her head and made a face. Anne had heard this story before; this was the reason why her father wouldn't give her as a bride to the leader. The carriage came to a sudden stopped and Anne’s body was lurched forward. A sudden thud was heard on the carriage side. “The enemy!” One of the soldiers cried and then the sounds of battle could be heard, the women inside the carriage clung to each other in fear.
