“I’m not sure if there’s any point to that tonight. What do you mean? One thing I have learned from your mother’s many lectures and insights on pregnancy is that there are some days when it’s more likely, and some days when it’s less likely. You’ve been vigorous in trying to achieve what we both want but I don’t think it’s going to happen tonight.”
My dearest Mary, if you are reading this, then you are leaving France to reclaim your Scottish throne. I always knew this day would come and I wish I could be at your side as you set sail to take back what is yours. In the darkest of times, you were my conscience. Your heart was a light, Mary, and it burned so very bright for France. No matter how far you go, that light will burn forever. I have left you a gift, something i made for you to fight for what is yours and for what you know in your heart is right. I love you, Mary Stuart. Forever.
