Aline was training when a mousy haired messenger approached her from behind. He tapped her on the shoulder and said “ahem. I have been asked to give you this scr-” Aline was caught off guard by his tapping, so out of habit she swung around, jabbing her wooden training sword around. The messenger was very luck that it was her wooden training sword and not a combat sword that was in her hands, because the sword made swift, hard contact with his ribs. Aline winced as she saw her mistake. “Ah. You startled me. Forgive my error. What was the reason you have been sent to me?” The messenger, still gasping to reclaim lost wind and clutching at what was certainly going to be a bruise or worse, wordlessly handed her a scroll. It was from her niece’s fiancé. Strange... thought Aline. He never writes to me!
She opened the scroll and read about the demise of her brother in law. Her first reaction was horror. Then a whole onslaught of pressing emotions, each vying for her attention. To cope, she lifted her sword and swung back around. Something about the feeling of a sword coming in contact with an exterior object soothed her.
The messenger thankfully noticed her lifting her sword, and ducked just as it went whizzing above his head, where his other ribs were just a second before.
Aline barely noticed the just averted disaster as she hit the wooded dummy, splintering a large crack down its middle with the sheer force of her internal battle’s rage. Once she had thoroughly exauhsted herself she left, quite placidly, to go comfort her sister.

After some time, albeit all its ups and downs, life in the kingdom started to thrive again and the memories of happy times and loyal friends would be forever and fondly etched in the heart of Alexandra. So much had happened in so little time. An inn had been opened in Savoy and great quality food was being produced.

Alexandra was also glad that the business of her dear friend Genevieve was blooming. She had heard that her friend's reputation as one of the best seamstresses in the whole of Europe was growing. That was exciting! From her last correspondence, Genevieve was planning a trip to deliver an order, and would eventually stop in Savoy for a visit. Alexandra couldn't wait to see her dear friend again. She was also eagerly awaiting for news of her god daughter who had recently moved to Sweden to be next to her fiance, Samir. She smiled at the thought of these wonderful friends, and went for a stroll in the gardens of the Palace.

Genevieve was feeling much more at peace with the world lately. She still missed and grieved over her lost husband, but such pain she could become used to. She was also very busy, which helped to distract her. She had received many large orders on her tailoring shop, which she was working hard to fill! Her daughter was often on her mind. She had not seen her since the day she left Savoy. The last time she had seen her had also been the last time she had seen, or ever would see, her Ismail. Thankfully Samir still kept in touch because through him she received frequent news of her daughter. She heard that her daughter was quite busy, likely with wedding preparations, so she didn’t receive many letters from her. She would have spoken in person with her daughter, but Alexandra had moved to Sweden with Samir and a mutual friend of theirs.
Genevieve’s work kept her mind clear and fresh, as she used that time to think and plan about many things. The repetitive motion of the stitches was one she knew well. She had memorized almost every clothing pattern in her possession, so not much thought had to be spared on where to stitch. In, out, in out, sometimes it was monotonous, and it was always painful when she accidentally jabbed her fingers and wrists, but those pricks only hurt a bit, and then faded and healed. Still, she was looking forward to taking a break.
As soon as this order was finished, she would quickly make another outfit, and then she would deliver it. She was going to meet her client in France, and so she’d be able to visit Savoy on a little break on the way there, and then take a bit of a small vacation on the way back, also in Savoy. She’d been planning on going to Sweden to visit her daughter and drop off some items there, but her schedule wouldn’t allow that. Thankfully her daughter had agreed to come to Durazzo and pick the things up when they were ready. Genevieve also looked forward to that. With a smile, she placed the shirt that she had just finished on the chair by her side and pulled out her scissors and fabric to start the next one.

Genevieve had been very busy lately, and had not had much correspondence with her daughter. Last she had heard, her daughter was well and preparing for her upcoming wedding. One day, at work, a letter came for Genevieve from Queen Alexandra of Savoy, who was her daughter’s godmother, inquiring about Alexandra Carp’s whereabouts and health and bringing to Genevieve’s attention the fact that all records had been wiped of Alexandra’s name. Genevieve panicked a bit, and then immediately contacted her daughters fiancé, Samir. Her daughter was missing, possibly dead.

Genevieve put together a search party from what remained of her family and told them to keep their eyes peeled and to report any sightings of Alexandra. All that was left was to pray that the poor young girl was alright...
