Re: stop feeling guilty, small rant (BENCHLAND)

Thank thee, thank thee, thank thee, Katy. I have just satteth reading the last few posts with absolutely no understanding!

 

I am so tired after a long, stressful day (Nay, 7 1/2 WEEKS!) at school (with frequent visits to the FF bench! Smiley Mad) that I just cannot get my brain to follow the convoluted language never mind the plot of the story! 

 

I will attempt to peruse it all again next week when I have more time and energy.....eth!

 

(Also trying to steer clear of the panic and/or wobbly bench(es) because my boob has been tender and sore - and bigger?? - for the last few days! 😞 I KNOW it's done this before, and Onc & surgeon both say it's normal, but when I'm overtired, I just can't switch off the 'What if?' monster! )

 

Errectingeth an enormous ETH bench down by yonder lake of guilt in the land of Bench. 🙂

My half-brother Tristan and the sweet Ladye Matilda do comforteth each other in their distress.  

I hath been thinking that things do stinketh of a double-cross!!!  Who did'st have reason to kill?

Lord Herman wast to gain from the betrothal of ye son, Lord Conrad, to Frederic's Isabella.  

Lord Frederic wast a sworn enemy until that time!  Verily, Lord Frederic wast to gainest most!

Yea, marriage unto the sweet Matilda and thus a way into the Castle of Bench to seekest out ye treasure!

He wast betrayed methinks!!  There is one, murderer most  foul, who didst knoweth his secret plans!!!

Re: stop feeling guilty, small rant (BENCHLAND)

Good morrow my lady, a goodly brew hast I prepareth for thee this dreary morn.
'Tis told by yonder servants that thine daughter be cloistered in her chambers with the fare lady Isabella. Indeed, tis said that Tristin and Justin too hath visited the pair. In truth I never dist see-eth that pair. Yet surely such outpourings of grief as cometh forth from young damsels must find solace.
'Tis too said 'mongst the peasants that Tristin loveth Isabella deeply. Yea, forsooth, so much devoted to Matilda be'est Justin that he hath sworn to joust to the death for her hand.
Wherefore shouldst these gentle maidens wail and grieve? Both hath become free fromst the wicked plottery of each father. Each can now chooseth their own sweetheart.
Kind lady, I pray your forgivness that I be so light of heart, yet I'faith they will be wed for certs. Verily, the sons shalt inhereteth that which be rightly theirs. Wenst that day comes the Land of Bench shalt once more rejoice.
T'would be well that Friar Jerome dist prepareth himself for service.

The Ladye Isabella grieveth much for her father Frederic,  whomst she did'st love as a dutiful daughter, but did'st suffereth nonethelesseth,  liken unto the sweet Matilda at the hands of her father, Herman.

Methinks Isabella doth remembereth too fondly in her grief!

Lord Frederic was liken unto Lord Herman in greediness and deceit!!

Re: stop feeling guilty, small rant (BENCHLAND)

I tell ye true, I hath survived that very curse and fear it no more wise Morwenna. Yet, I hath non to fear as ye map is indeed hid safe with the Four Legged Beastie who hath also stole away with yet more of Lord Herman's . Aye, my son shalt receive that what is surely his right afore this day is done.
Hah! "Wilt thou not tarry a moment longer fair maid" didst he spake that many a long year past. Fool was I to be played, like yonder mandolin, in my comely youth. Many a year hath I tarried here whilst slaving for that wretched man. Fie on thee Herman. Thou art naught but a boil, a plague-sore an embossed carbuncle - yet alas the father of mine own son!
Enow pratting I speeketh to well. I shalt dally here no longer but away. By your leave there is work must be done.

I proclaimeth that I knoweth nothynge of the deaths.  Verrily, t'is fact that when the statue toppled I stille resteth in mine chamber both tiredeth and dispiritede over yon betrothal and the neede to decideth between a greene or a red gown.  Upon hearynge the commotion I made haste down the East Tower steppes into ye Great Hall and learned thus that my son and Lord Frederick were dead.

 

Lord Herman, why art thou lyinge on ye cold rushes?  Ah, I see, drunk again.  T'is always his answer.  Never can he be relied upon.  Excepte for chasing ye wenches.  Sorrye, Friar Jerome but you wills't get no sense from hym until the morrow.

Act Two:

 

Wherein Morwenna the Wise and ye goode Friar do endeavour to findeth the truth!

 

Conrad, Isabella's fiancee is no more - who did'st see the statue toppleth on him?

 

Jack the Jester did'st find the body of Isabella's father, the Lord Frederic - an arrow in his heart!

Who did'st plan this foulest of deeds? Who did'st noticeth things afoot? The castle inhabitants do giveth account.

 

The de Wynters are cursed, their line endeth.  Who is the real heir to the Castle of Bench?

Re: stop feeling guilty, small rant (BENCHLAND)

 

Such poor wit hath Lord Herman, to find the confidence of the kind that abandons manliness and leads to leisurely boasting, methinks if they could see the danger in him and if he would not pursue the ladies, how quickly that would cause great joy and change of spirit in thine castle. He is indeed a man who honours no oath!

Do as thou wilt???????? Perchance?

Whither is the privy? and the barrel of the olde mead? xx

Re: stop feeling guilty, small rant (BENCHLAND)

Verily 'twas ruction and mayhem in the great hall yon prior eve! N'ere afore hast I witneseth such a thing. Young master Conrad were squashethed by the tumbling of a most huge statue. Methinks fair Isabella and bright young Tristan wilt be much distressed by Conrad's premature demise. Alas, the bridal bed shall remain unsullied.
Verily, not that I shouldst be one to gossip, yet I wouldst have sworn my lady Isabella did breathe a sigh of relief midst her tears of woe.
Yet, shalt the family fortune remain with the wretched Herman. Hadst he become squashethed his great fortune wouldst hath become that of Conrad and his bride to be. Alas, alack poor Lady Isabella and as for the lady Agatha, she hast less colour in her visage than was seen in yonder whooooooing spirit. Perchance I should fetch more Mead?
Indeed, woe is all around this morn I must make haste to the kitchen, thither I shalt take council from wise Morwenna as to the meaning of these occurrences.

The banquet was magnificent!  Lady Agatha playeth most splendidly on the harpsichord and the servants did prepareth & provideth wondrous sustenance to ye assembled company. Beatrix the cook didst find Ye Treasure Mappe on the scullery floor.  But the nyghte did end in direst fashion!
A great statue did fall on Lord Conrad AND Lord Frederic was discovered murdered in the cellar. Whodunneth-it???

Why was the knight afraid of a bug?  Because it was a dragonfly!
Sire, a knight is killed in battle - what pray is writteth on his tombstone?   Rust in peace!
What sayest the dragon when he saweth St. George approach?  Oh no! Not more canned food!
What king wast famous for writing a lot of books? King Author!
Why didst King Arthur have a round table? So nobody could corner him!
What dost King Arthur listeneth to every evening at six? The knightly news!
What was Camelot famous for? It's knight life!
What do you calleth a knight who is afraid to fight? Sir Render.
Tell me Sire, where can'st a hungry warrior go around here to findeth a hot plate of food on a cold, dark night like this?  Yea, thou know'st it - the all knight diner!

 

The bells, the bells! The bells on my cap and on this silly costume, they driveth me mad.
