PostSubject: Stay Awake    5/6/2014, 11:16 pm

The day after the dance, Marigold was in the hospital wing. Jacob sat at her bed side, reading a book. Marigold started to slum her head down.

"Hey. Don't start that. Stay awake."Jacob said, snapping his fingers. She smiled and Healer Alys came over to her.

"Let me check your head, sweet girl."she said, unwrapping the bloody bandages. Jacob stood up and looked at the back of her head. He grimaced and looked away.

"We're gonna have to put six stitches in, sweetie. But, we have to wait for the swelling to go down first."she said, wrapping her head with a clean bandage.

"I contacted your friends by the way. They should be here soon to give Jacob a break."Healer Alys said, lifting Marigold's head to the light.

"You're pupils are still not equal. Do you feel nausea? Do you still have a headache?"she asked. Marigold furrowed her brow and thought about it. Do I feel.....headache?she thought.

"Still showing signs of confusion."Jacob commented. Healer Alys nodded and wrote on a chart. Then, the doors to the hospital wing slammed open and friends came pouring in. Marigold covered her ears and Jacob shushed at them.

"Is she alright?"Gavin asked cautiously as Asher pushed his way forward. Asher hugged her tightly and Marigold whimpered in pain. Jacob pulled him off of her and glared at him.

"A broken arm and a nasty concussion."Healer Alys said, setting her back in the bed. Marigold began to close her eyes but Jacob snapped his fingers and she woke back up.

"How serious is the concussion?"Peyton asked.

"Well, she's showing some pretty serious symptoms. Confusion, unequal pupils, vomiting, major headaches, and intolerance to sound. Last night she had a few seizures but we haven't seen any this morning. She was unconscious for most of the night last night. I have to use the Rennervate charm on her this morning to wake her up. Otherwise, she would have fallen into a coma."Healer Alys said, tilting Marigold's head back to give her a sip of water. The water spilled a little down the side of her mouth and Jacob wiped it away. Asher took the rag from Jacob and took over for him.

"What can we do to help?"Asher asked.

"You can help keep her awake. She has to stay awake for at least 24 hours or she'll fall into a coma."Alys said. The group looked at each other.

"Can't you use the Rennervate charm on her again?"Gavin asked. Healer Alys shook her head.

"I don't want to jolt her nerves again. It may cause more harm than healing."she explained. Marigold began to throw up and Jacob caught it in bucket. The group sighed and, without saying anything, agreed to stay.

"Oh. This is Jacob, by the way. He brought Marigold in from the fall."Alys explained. Asher glared at him and took the seat closest to Marigold.

"So, what do we do now?"Gavin asked, already getting bored.


(OC: Sorry for it being long. It was a lot to cover.)

Tari, who had been following the group a tad since the dance, leaned against a bed near the back of the group, watching Marigold absently. Twidling with her wand, she spoke softly, not really expecting to be heard.
"We could play a game of sorts..."
She pushed her hair back over her eyes, waiting for a response she didn't think would come.

Adele and Seamus rushed to the Hospital Wing as soon as they’d heard about Marigold. Honestly, if it wasn’t her best friend in trouble, Adelaine wouldn’t have ever left the dorm; but Seamus had cornered her in the common room and apologized for his stubbornness. He also pointed out that the words were still on her face, and she pointed out that he was a dunce.

Oh, Lord, I hope she’s alright,” she said nervously as they hurried down the corridor.

Once they arrived, Peyton came over and gave a quick recap of the situation. Jacob (she assumed that was the Slytherin snapping his fingers in Marigold’s ear every time she drifted off) and Marigold weren’t telling anyone what exactly happened, but whatever it was…it was bad.

So basically, we’re all trying to keep her awake,” Peyton concluded, then noticing Christiare in the corner. “Hello Christiare. That’s a brilliant idea!

Adele turned and observed the Gryffindor. Had they ever even met? She knew the girl was friends with Arya, and had danced with Peyton and Symon..

Yes, splendid idea!” Gavin said, nodding absently. “Hate to be a standard Ravenclaw, but we may as well turn it into a learning experience. How about spells? Like the color changing charm, or the tickling hex!

Oh, or the duck spell!” Peyton added excitedly, receiving confused looks. “Well, I think it would be fun…

Marigold faded in and out of the real world and the world in her mind. Everything was weird, like she was living underwater, the voices blended and far away and the figures blurry and unknown. The only two that seemed to keep her grounded were Jacob and Asher. And, they were fighting in whisper voices that the group couldn't hear.

"You can leave now. I can take care of her."Asher said to Jacob.

"I want to make sure she's well taken care of."Jacob said to Asher.

"She will be with me."Asher said.

"If you can take care of her so well, where were you when she fell down the stairs?"Jacob said harshly. Asher sat back in his seat and glared at him, his arms crossed. Marigold watched a little bird by the window, it's song making her ears bleed. It pretty.she thought.

"Perhaps the color changing charm would be fun."Gavin said, pulling out his wand. He used the charm and turned Asher's shirt to a bright Hufflepuff yellow. The group laughed and Asher pulled out his own wand, turning Gavin's face orange. Marigold watched with curiosity as spells were tossed back and forth. I know to do that?she thought, watching as the group began to have fun.

Peyton's hair was now green and Gavin was a mutt with the different colors. Seamus was polka dotted and Asher was covered in stripes. Jacob even got hit a few times, his hair turning orange and his shirt turning green. Marigold watched with wide eyes, although she kept going back to bird by the window. It accidentally got hit by a spell and fell from the window. Marigold's face turned from happiness to horror in a split second and a tear fell down her cheek.

"Are you okay?"Jacob asked as she watched the window. She nodded mindlessly, watching for the bird to reappear. It didn't. Jacob took a mental note of her mood swings. The fun stopped though when Healer Alys got caught in the cross hairs, her black traditional clothes now splattered with pink and blue.

"I understand this is keeping her awake and you are also having fun. But, please stop when I'm walking through, alright?"she said as kindly as possible, sitting a tray on Marigold's bed stand. The bandages were once again removed and the wound was looked at.

"Oh my...."Asher trailed off, looking away and trying not to throw up. Gavin and Peyton then got up to look but Jacob kept them away. He no grossed out by me.Marigold thought with a smile.

"Swelling still hasn't gone down. I'm gonna apply ice to it. Can  one of you hold her hand? It'll be quite a shock."she asked. Jacob grabbed her left hand and Asher grabbed her right. Marigold tensed up when the ice was applied to her wound. More new bandages and Healer Alys gave her an extra blanket when she started shivering.

"There. That should help keep her awake and to bring the swelling down. You may continue with your color war."she said. Jacob walked with Healer Alys for a second, talking to her then returned after a minute. Gavin and Peyton immediately got back to the color changing and soon the mood lightened up again. Everything  was back to normal.

((OOC: Madison, I was not okay with you killing a bird so I brought it back to life  cheers ))

Adelaine stood off to the side a bit, content with just observing for now. The Hospital Wing was in chaos, but the acceptable kind. She even noticed Healer Alys chuckling to herself here and there. It was lucky the wing was empty aside from them, however; not everyone enjoyed ruckus like this.

Why don’t you join in, Adele?” a breathless, yellow and blue haired Peyton asked, wandering over.

Oh, I will in a moment,” she assured him, watching a pink bird fly up from the floor and out a window.

I still think the duck spell would’ve been better,” her friend muttered, covering his head and going back to war.

Gavin’s hair was a rainbow, and his clothes were splattered with red and green. Seamus and Asher both had bright purple streaks through their shaggy locks, and half the Slytherin lad’s face was orange. The truth was, Adele had only attempted this charm a couple times; as a Ravenclaw, hesitation was a given when there was the possibility of failure. She pulled out her wand and took a deep breath..

Ducklifors,” she said clearly, pointing to an empty space on the ground at her feet.

A small duck appeared in a poof of smoke. Peyton saw and cheered, drawing everyone else’s attention. The little duckling wobbled on it’s legs and quacked loudly.

Can we name him Pip?” Peyton shouted with a grin, rushing over to see the little guy.

Marigold watched the duckling, although she kept thinking that she saw three. Healer Alys was captured by the ducklings adorableness but she also made sure that Marigold was taken care of. She came back with a large tablespoon and bottles of mystery medicine. Marigold shook her head when she saw it.

"Now, calm down Marigold. It's just medicine. You helped me make a majority of these."Healer Alys said. Marigold glared at her as the group became confused. Great.Marigold thought.

"What do you mean she helped you?"Asher asked.

"You didn't tell any of them?"she asked Marigold as she swallowed the first tablespoon. Marigold shrugged.

"Well, Marigold has accepted an apprenticeship under me to learn healing magic. She has quite a knack for it."Healer Alys said, feeding her another tablespoon.

"An apprenticeship? But, only males are allowed to do that."Gavin said from the floor. He was covered in ducklings. Healer Alys frowned at him.

"Gavin Lydale, you know that women at Hogwarts have special opportunities. They are magical after all."she said motherly to him.

"Why didn't you tell us?"Peyton asked Marigold between conjuring up ducklings. Now, Gavin was changing the ducklings different colors. Marigold had a purple one hiding on her stomach.

"Because it's not legal yet."Jacob guessed. Healer Alys sighed.

"Unfortunately, I keep neglecting to give the paperwork to the Headmistress, so Marigold can have an elective with me next year."Healer Alys admitted.

"How did this start?"Asher asked.

"The siren incident you got into around Christmas. I gave her some books she could read up on and she started coming for private lessons."Alys said, feeding Marigold the last tablespoon. Now, Marigold felt very dizzy. She rubbed her eyes when she started seeing weird animals, like horses with stripes on them. Healer Alys looked at the bottles.

"Let's see. I gave you a tablespoon of Ossa for your arm, a tablespoon of Cephalalgia for your headache, a tablespoon of Refundere for nausea, and a tablespoon of Animus to improve your memory. Is there anything I'm forgetting?"she asked Marigold. This was a test. Marigold knew the answer. At least, she thought she did. She knew she needed more medicine than that.

"Horoma. Turbatio. Strepitus."Marigold listed after a minute of thinking. Alys smiled.

"Very good. But, you actually don't need any Horoma. You're eyes have gone back to normal. And, I'm glad to see that your talking again."she said happily.

"That was cruel. You could have just given her the things she needs."Asher said to Healer Alys.

"Asher, that was a test. To see if she remembered all of that."Jacob said defensively. The boys glared at each other. Jacob broke the glaring contest and looked at Marigold.

"How many de Hattes are there? Can you name them?"Jacob asked softly. Marigold thought about it. She knew there were about.....five? Six?

"Lord Roy, Lady Anne, Maria, Clifton, Oliver."Marigold listed slowly.

"And, the new baby...."Jacob started.

"Rose."Marigold said cutting him off. Six. Not five.she thought.

"How did you know all of that?"Gavin asked.

"Because I go there every summer."Jacob said.

"Wait, you two know each other?!"Asher boomed. Marigold covered her ears. But, it was true. Marigold and Jacob did know each other.

Adele cuddled the pile of multi-colored ducklings on her lap and only half-listened to the conversations around her. She looked up with a start when she heard Asher’s shout. Jacob and Marigold knew each other? Wasn’t a total shock, Arya and Adelaine had apparently run into each other a few times back in Newcastle. Symon and Finn had grown up together, though the Slytherin would kill her for telling anyone.

Asher, you really shouldn’t be so loud,” she said sternly. “Don’t upset Marigold.

I think I can govern my own actions, Lady Adelaine,” he shot back venomously.

Oi!” Seamus exclaimed, standing up. “Tha’ was not necessary!

I think it was, if she thinks she can always control everyone,” Asher stood as well.

Half-wit varlet!” Seamus shouted.

Hedge-born dunce!” Asher yelled.

Pretty soon everyone was on their feet, arguing and shouting insults. The room was in chaos again, but not the good kind. Adele didn’t even understand what they were all so upset about. That wasn’t true, actually; Asher had a habit of taking out his anger on the first person who breathes the wrong way, and Seamus would back Adele on anything. Jacob finally stood and clapped loudly to get everyone’s attention.

That’s enough! I think everyone should go now, this is not good for Marigold,” he announced confidently.

Oh, and you know so well what’s good for her, do you?” Asher challenged, turning his anger on him. “If anyone’s staying, it’s me!

The shouting resumed.

Like the drop of a pin, chaos erupted. Marigold covered her ears. It was extremely loud. But, Marigold felt somewhat at ease. Somehow sleepy. She closed her eyes when Asher threw the first punch. She listened to the fighting for a moment. But, then, she started drifting off.

She fell asleep.

Marigold opened her eyes to find herself floating on a still lake. Above her, the blue skies and clouds rolled peacefully along. The lake acted as a mirror. Marigold reached up to touch the clouds. They were her friends voices, still arguing. They hadn't noticed her yet. Then, she heard voices. Dead people voices.

"Hello Marigold."her grandmother whispered from the water, grabbing her shoulders. Oh dear god.Marigold thought.

"Come with us dear."her aunt said, grabbing her legs. They started to pull her below the water. Marigold struggled and kicked. She wanted to live. She had so much to live for. She didn't want to sink into a coma. She kicked and pushed but they had strong grips. She screamed and a golden light emitted from her chest.

In real life too. The golden light emitted from her chest and filled the whole hospital wing, knocking her friends off their feet. Marigold stretched and rubbed her eyes.

"Good morning. What's going on?"she asked. Healer Alys immediately ran over to her and checked her symptoms. Her friends started to get up off the floor.

"Incredible! You'll all healed! Do you feel confusion? Nausea? Headache?"Healer Alys asked in a rapid fire action, checking Marigold's eyes, ears, mouth, and even nose.

"Nope. Just feel really dizzy."Marigold said, rubbing her face.

"I bet. That was a strong blast of magic. It probably won't happen again."Alys said.

"How is this possible?"Jacob said as Healer Alys unwrapped Marigold's head.

"There's not even a wound."Asher said, amazed.

"Let me see your arm."Healer Alys said. Marigold took her arm out of the sling and handed it to her. She pressed on it and Marigold squirmed in pain.

"Still broken. But, you're concussion is gone."Healer Alys said. She put her arm back in the sling.

"Again, how was that possible?"Gavin asked.

"Marigold, did you read that book, The Heart of a Servant?"Alys asked.

"Of course."she replied.

"Tell us about it. Briefly."Alys insisted.

"Well, it's about this Mediwizard with a golden heart that traveled the world healing all kinds of diseases."Marigold said.

"Golden hearts. Golden hearts. Golden hearts!"Healer Alys pieced together.

"That's how you did it. Marigold, you have a golden heart."Alys said happily.

"Golden heart?"Peyton asked.

"A golden heart is very rare in the medicine world. It refers to the type of magic that healer possesses. Or their compassion. Or magical healing abilities. It's hard to decide which one. It's incredible that you have one."Alys said, writing on a chart. Jacob helped Marigold out of the bed, causing Asher to mutter something under his breath. They glared at each other.

"What happened to your eye?"Marigold asked, looking at Jacob's black eye. She touched it as he explained that Asher punched him and it slowly faded away. Aftershock from my initial healing.Marigold thought, looking at her hands.

"Woah."Seamus said simply.

In all the hubbub, Adelaine had been the victim of a kick from Gavin that had been directed toward Peyton until he jumped out of the way. Gavin immediately apologized, but she kicked him right back even harder. The group continued on like this until Marigold’s burst of light, magical healing, golden heart, etc.

You’ll still need to stay here for the night, ” Alys was saying to Marigold. “Preferably two nights so I can be sure you’re well.

Healer Alys told them all they could go back to their dorms now that Marigold didn’t need to be kept awake. With that said, Alys went back into her office and shut the door. The arguing, quieter now, immediately started up again. Seamus and Gavin seemed to be siding against Asher and Peyton, Jacob being caught in between both groups. Adele thought it was clear that the fight was just between Jacob and Asher (pointlessly; Jacob seemed to treat Marigold more like a sister than anything), but boys will be boys.

You’re all halfwits,” she jumped in, talking over the boys. “And if any one of you ever kicks me again I’ll turn you into a duck!

The shouting ensued again and Adele went to sit next to Marigold.

I think you’re the only one who can put a stop to this,” she whispered, folding her arms.

Marigold sighed and watched the boys for a moment. She then grabbed Asher by the ear and dragged him aside, Jacob following suit. The other were still whisper shouting at each other but it was really between Jacob and Asher.

"Oww."Asher said, rubbing his ear.

"I'm only going to say this once. Play nice. Asher, quit being such a hot head. Jacob, stop being a......идиот?"Marigold said, trying to insult Jacob in Bulgarian. He had taught her a little bit when he would come to visit in the summer.

In order to learn the language, his family only spoke that for a long time and Marigold was assigned to them when they visited so she had to learn a little to understand what they were asking. Jacob seemed surprised that she remembered that much though.

"What?"Asher asked, becoming confused.

"She called me an idiot. Let's see........Всичко за вас, милейди."Jacob explained. Marigold shook her head and shrugged. Jacob winked at her with a cheeky little smile.

"I'm really confused."Asher asked.

"You got nothing to worry about. I'm betrothed to Maria de Hattes. That's now we know each other. So, please calm down."Jacob said.

"I don't like that tone."Asher said. Marigold sighed. These boys were impossible. They began to whisper shout again.

"Stop. Now."Marigold said. They glared at each other. Great. They're rivals now.Marigold thought.

"Please? For me?"Marigold asked, batting her eyelashes. Asher grunted in compliance and went back to other boys. Marigold rolled her eyes.

"How have you been?"Jacob asked. Marigold smiled.

"I've been a lot better. How are you?"she said, rubbing her head.

"Amazing, actually. I like Hogwarts a lot more than Durmstrang. By the way, did you hear about Maria?"Jacob asked.

"Yeah. She's non magical."Marigold said sadly.

"Not only that but she's pregnant."Jacob said.

"What?!"Marigold exclaimed. Hearing of a pregnant unmarried noble was rare, but it did happen. In fact, that's why many peasant girls got married, because they got pregnant first. Marigold knew a few cousins that did that. It terrified her.

"Yes. She said was raped but she's been kicked out of the de Hattes household. My betrothal has been broken."Jacob said, sounding a bit sad. The thought really disturbed Marigold though. Was it an uncle? A knight? I mean, I work for these people. Am I at risk?she thought.

"So, what are you going to do?"Marigold asked.

"Well, my family has been looking for a new noble girl but most of them have been betrothed so we don't know yet."he explained.

"Wait....why did you Asher that you were betrothed then?"she asked. Jacob smiled.

"To give him peace of mind. I don't see what you see in him. He's hot headed and very possessive. You deserve much better."Jacob said, kissing her hand. Marigold blushed.

"I'm off to get a good nap. Довиждане, моето цвете."he said, bowing to her. She giggled and watch him leave.

"What was that?"Gavin asked. Asher was still steaming.

"Private joke."Marigold replied. She looked at the table beside her bed. She frowned.

"Hey. Where's my wand?"Marigold asked.

Adele watched silently as Jacob and Asher butted heads again. She was beginning to dislike the Gryffindor more and more, especially after what he’d said about her.

You boys should go find Marigold’s wand,” she said decisively. “Sorry, was that too controlling, Asher?

Asher at least had the decency to blush. He and the other boys left the Hospital Wing in search of the wand, so Marigold and Adelaine were alone. She studied her friend and was pleased to see that she did look much better, though tired. After a few minutes, one of the ducklings waddled over.

Hey there, little one,” Adele smiled, picking up the lime green ball of fluff. “We don’t have ducks at Beaufort, but there swans that swim in the lake in the summer.

Found it!” Seamus reappeared, bursting through the door with the others.

It was in a hallway,” Asher informed them, solemnly laying the wand next to Marigold. “Marigold, I thought you said the fight was in a stairwell?

Everyone’s eyes, including Adele’s, went to Marigold.

Marigold was petting a duckling when Asher asked the question she was dreading to answer. With Jacob gone, she now had to think of something. Should I tell them the truth or lie? Better stick with the story.she decided quickly.

"The hallway? Hmmm.....weird. It must have fallen down the stairs."she said, turning it over, making sure it was okay. Tough little piece of wood.she thought.

"All the way down five flights of stairs?"Gavin asked, a bit confused.

"Can you tell us exactly what happened?"Peyton asked when Marigold sat in silence.

"I don't really remember a lot."Marigold said, staring out the window.

"Can you try?"Asher asked cautiously. Marigold squeezed her eyes close for a minute, conjuring up some fake tears and to make it look like she was thinking.

"I was just trying to get back to the dorm when....Victoria stopped me on the stairs and started insulting me. I drew my wand when I had enough...... and one of her friends sent my wand flying with an Expelliarmus charm. And.......more insults and she pushed me down the stairs. Thirty minutes later........Jacob found me."Marigold said, slowly, tears streaming down her face. The room was silent. Seamus slowly wrapped an arm around her small frame and pulled her close. Gavin and Peyton stood there, frozen in shock. Asher looked up at the ceiling, trying to get a grip on his anger. Asher broke the silence when her broke a jar off a table.

"You should report it."Gavin said.

"Why? They won't do anything of real harm to her."Asher said.

"What do you mean?"Gavin asked.

"We wouldn't really expect nobles to know."Peyton asked.

"What's that supposed to mean?!"Gavin demanded.

"It means anyone that is beneath barons or knights or esquires get the short end of the stick when it comes to things like this! We're treated like we're nonexistent, like we don't matter."Asher said angrily.

Marigold then realized that a very small percentage of her group are actually nobles. Asher's a freeman, Arya's a villein, Peyton's works on a sheep farm, Mira is aweaver. Hell, Finnius is a domestic servant like Marigold!

"That's not true!"Gavin said, defending himself.

"Oh, get off your high horse and come to Earth, Gavin! You're father owns domestic servants like Marigold. How does your father treat them? How do you treat them?"Peyton asked, gently, trying not to start a fight. Gavin stared at Marigold for a second then left, a blush coming to his face. Peyton sighed.

"Don't worry about him. I'll go apologize for us later."Peyton told Asher, gathering the ducklings that had been wondering around the wing.

"Not like he'll accept it."Asher said.

"You're in a really pissy mood today."Seamus said. The room was silent, Marigold and Seamus staring at Asher. Marigold had never seen him like this. It changed the way she looked at him now.

"It's late. All of you should hurry to your dorms."Healer Alys said, coming out of her office. Asher hugged Marigold tightly and kissed her head, stalking back to the Gryffindor dorm to find Victoria. Marigold sighed and laid back in her bed. It had been a long day.

"Well, that was exciting."Peyton said. But, there was now a clear division in the group.

Can we still pick up the pieces? Or has too much damage been done?Marigold thought with dread.

Tari had simply watched most of the time. As they were told to leave, she rose from the bed she had sat upon, and walked over to Marigold, wishing her a good night. Surprisingly, the evening had folded together better than she expected, and she found herself a little glad at the fact so many had agreed upon her suggestion of a game. Of course, it was a magic game, and involved sorcery, but she was a little glad none-the-less. A slight smile even might have been seen on her face as she stood with her fellow gryffindors, waiting to head back with them.

Adelaine sat still and listened to the conversation around her. She wanted to follow Gavin out, but she didn’t want Marigold to feel like everyone was abandoning her. She also wanted to use every hex in the books on Asher, but she wasn’t certain how Marigold still felt about him.

Is that what you all think of us, then?” she said, barely audible, to the remaining people in the room. “Of Gavin and I?

Seamus and Peyton both talked over each other, trying to assure her that she misunderstood them, but it was too late for apologies. There was a tension in their group that she had never felt before, after all they’d been through together. She would never be able to look at Asher the same way; forgive, but not forget. And it was clear that there was an ever-growing riff between him and Seamus. Peyton, she wasn’t certain about - she’d never heard him raise his voice before now, so obviously he had deep-set issues against nobility.

I’m, er, gonna find Asher,” Peyton said awkwardly, and left.

I’m going to go find Gavin,” she said shortly. “See you, Marigold.

Quickly exiting the wing, with Seamus trotting after her, Adele made her way back to Ravenclaw Tower.

Marigold said good bye to her friends and sat in her bed, all alone. Healer Alys came in and started lighting candles once it got really dark. Duckling were still trotting around, now wandering into the hallway even.

"Here you go."Healer Alys said, setting a tray of food in front of Marigold. Marigold ate in awkward silence. Healer Alys came back when she was finished.

"Are you alright dear?"Alys said as she started to help Marigold into a nightdress.

"Everyone's fighting among my friends. It's the nobles versus the peasants and it's causing a lot of tension. It just upsets me."Marigold said. Healer Alys sighed.

"This is all a part of growing up, Marigold. When you were little, it didn't matter if peasant children and noble children played together. You were all children. But, as you grow up, social class suddenly becomes more important. The gap is only getting bigger, as the poor get poorer and the rich get richer. But, unfortunately, this is now life works."she explained gently, brushing out Marigold's brown locks. Alys was basically Marigold's second mother, although it was a little bit unprofessional. Marigold sighed.

"Would you like to hear some good news?"Alys said excitedly. Marigold smiled and nodded.

"Well, I'm finally getting married."she said simply. Marigold felt her jaw dropped and she smiled.

"That's amazing! To who?"Marigold asked excitedly. Alys chuckled.

"Well, you won't believe me but it's to Louis the II, the Elector of Bradenburg."she said. Marigold turned to face the young healer, her mouth agape. Alys nodded and showed her the ring she kept around her neck. It was a gorgeous ring, with silver plating and a diamond surrounded by jewels.

"Congratulations! That's amazing! How did this come to be? Do you know him? What's he like? Is your parents forcing you into this? Are you getting married in Germany? What's the wedding going to be like?"Marigold asked rapid fire. Alys laughed.

"Well, yes, my family had known his family for quite some time. My father and his father have a trade agreement and I used to go their when I was little. He's very charming and brave and sweet and of course he come from a long line of magical heritage. Yes and no. My parent want us to marry but.....I think he love me. Yes, we're getting married in Germany, some time in July. We haven't worked out the exact details yet. But, I have a favor to ask you."she explained. Marigold nodded her head and giggled to all she was telling her. They were giggling like school girls.

"What?"she asked when the favor was brought up.

"Well......I've told him all about you and how well you have been doing and he had a brilliant idea. How would you like to be one of my bridesmaids?"Healer Alys asked. Marigold's jaw dropped.

"I-I-I couldn't. It's up to Lord de Hattes. He may want me to work this summer."Marigold replied after minute of thinking.

"I'll take care of him. I'll find a way to make it educational so he knows that we're not just goofing off in Germany. And, don't worry about the cost. Louis has agreed to pay for transportation and any other expenses. My parents has agreed to let you stay with them while we're on our honeymoon and to take you around Germany."Alys explained. Marigold stared at her and then wrapped her arm around her.

"Thank you so much. This is the best opportunity any one has ever given me."she said with tears in her eyes. Alys wiped them away and hugged her back.

"If I had a daughter, I would want her to be just like you. Now, get some sleep. You're coming to work in the gardens with me tomorrow."she said, blowing out some candles.

"Good night."Marigold said.

"Good night Marigold."she responded. Marigold stared at the ceiling and giggled to herself. The fighting seemed like a thing of the past.

I might be going to Germany!she thought with glee.
