His Royal Highness, King of Wales Andrew Naughton, laid in bed very ill from a illness that his servants and retinue had no clue what it was doctors attended him with no clue or antidote to the illness their patient suffered but as the days went on Andrew was growing weaker and mostly not responsive to questions asked him his High Steward stepped forward and asked once again "Your Highness, We fear you shall part very soon if you do not get out of bed, if so your amassed wealth will vanish if you do not give instructions as too its disbursement? Please Your Highness either speak or come back to us, we need you still and all your wisdom."

HRH Andrew Naughton just laid there not saying a thing but yet his eyes were open and his chest raised up and down. So he was yet breathing just not speaking, some of his servants wondered if he could speak at all.

Ernesto Strozzi received a letter from his sister, who lives in Chester. There were many personal items of news in the letter, but one thing stood out. His sister was requesting him to pray for King Andrew of Wales, who had suddenly fallen ill.

Father Ernesto added a mention to the evening prayers in the Parish of Jerusalem:

Lord Theos, we ask you to preserve the health of Andrew Naughton, King of Wales.  We pray for your blessing upon him and a speedy recovery from his ailments.

The High Steward enters the bedchamber of His Highness and immediately see's something is gravely wrong as His Highness is not even moving much and a red stain is present when he pulls back his Highness's covers he realizes that there was a a huge wound that was oozing out blood at a alarming rate and he immediately runs out and fetches other servants to help to try and stop the bleeding. But they were not being very successful so the High Steward decided it was time to dispatch letters out for assistance. He quickly writes out letters and seals them very quickly and instructs the riders to post haste them to the destinations and pray that they reach the people in time.

The Steward then says very lightly "Your Highness keep fighting help will arrive we need you still."

Father Ernesto read Lord Naughton's plea for help with complete astonishment. He thought to himself are there no theological priests nearer to Scandinavia who could heal this man?.
Even if he left Jerusalem this very instant, he would never reach Jylland in time to save Andrew Naughton.  :( :'(

A servant brought her a letter , the sender was the steward of Lord Naughton, the vassal of Jylland.
The day could not have been any more beautiful , the sky was cloudless and so blue that made it difficult to look anywhere else .
Costance opened the letter and she went pale ,  a hard knot formed in her throat .

She inhaled a deep breath regaining her composure. She knew what to do : a healer .
It needed to find a healer and make him travel to Jylland as soon as possible .

She wrote a message for the Bishop and then prayed : “ Dear Teos in heaven , please save him .”

Another letter was sent to Jylland to inform the steward that help was coming .

In her heart she knew that he would have been healed and slowly his health would have been restored . Despite everything, she managed a smile .

Maybe His Highness would just like to take a long rest and letting his mortal body becoming dust while his soul will leave this world in peace. And we are here trying to heal him, maybe against his own will. Maybe ...

Bishop Giovanni left the capital to sail to Jylland where the noble vassal of that land needed his assistance. His horse was climbing up a hilly piece of road when he first caught sight of a light : it was the castle of Skandeborg.

He  was leaded to the private chambers of the vassal: the noble man lied on his pillow and moved slowly and unconfortably.
Giovanni sat and looked at the fire into the room : lord Naughton cheeks burned , the fever was
high .
He turned reproachfully to the steward , scarcely believing his eyes :

“ Why did you not write before for asking help ?  Why let his wounds become so deep and the situation so serious ? Which sort of beasts have provoked  these injuries ? “

He took a kit for starting to heal Lord Naughton and his job began to crowd  his anger out of his mind .
