Lola and Narcisse’s marriage is in ruin. She knows he is not there when he’s laying besides her. His throughts are elsewhere and she loves him too much to ask why. It kills her inside to know she’s not the strong independent woman, advisor, she used to be. All that just because she fell in love and is afraid of losing another husband. So she lives her life in the castle with her queen and her son.
One day a knight from spain arrives with the looks of a pirate and the heart of a lion. He is quite handsome and intrigued by the sad look on the lady’s face. But he tells himself to stay away, she is married after all and he is honorable. That is until he sees her husband with Catherine de Medici which makes him understand her sadness. So he takes the risk to get to know this gorgeous lady with the haunted smile. She deserves more, so he thinks. She is a strong one - He can tell from watching her with Queen Mary. So he wants to bring a radiant smile back to her beautiful face. Lady Lola is quite happy with the attention, feels drawn to him by whatever reason and opens up day by day. He brings out a side in her that has been burried for a while.
They just match beautifully. Even if it is just for a short while.
Don’t be an asshole and listen to Jo, let her finish, before saying any of your asshole-y words.
Just tell Alex already, come on, maybe your husband will get prosecuted too and grey’s can turn into a show about trials, that’d be fun.
Tell Maggie you slept with Riggs, you just told her you won’t lie and then you lied after literally 2 minutes. Also, the least you can do is root for omelia, hours ago you were telling amelia she might be right and we can have more than 1 love, stop being so bipolar.
Slow down, okay? And maybe stop being that attractive.
Dear Amelia and Owen,
CONGRATULATIONS BABIES and now give us actual babies, it’s time, you’re moving too fast already, and everyone on grey’s got babies at the v wrong time, you could too.
Continue being cute, don’t screw it up, thanks.
I used to love you, stop being a stuck up bitch.
You should be there to help Alex. I miss you. Hope you’re having fun in NY
