Since we never know how long Queen Mary will need us for, rather than use my breaks to stroll through the gardens, I come once I am dismissed.” Good thing she would not need to go to the queen on the morrow, for she would never be able to keep the day’s information from Mary. If she probed her about why she had really needed the day off, there was no way she would be able to restrain herself from telling her everything that had transpired between the queen and Charles Brandon.
