After battle Borna went to Paris to get himself new horse. Borna took strong Andalusian horse. Mrgud was his name. After that, ride to Normandy was very pleasant.

Then Borna joined preparations for war. Norway is to be deleted from all maps of known world. Ships were being built, but Borna joined mock battles and duels. His duel with French King Black Raven had big atention, but Ravens experience and Borna's wrong tactic made him lose the duel. After that Borna went to his tent, to studdy maps...

Vikings      15.01.2012 22:27:52 --- 2 Years, 3 Months ago  
When Norway and Denmark showed on battlefield, Borna was certain of victory. However once the battle started, Borna realized he underestimated Vikings. They were fierce, tough, strong. French and Croatian knights fought valiantly, but in the end got defeated.

After that Norway and Denmark went down south, continuing to pilage France. As French and Croatian knight were retaking control over Normandy, scouts came with news about Swedish army marching toward them.
"It was about time." Borna though to himself and continued with retaking of Normandy.

Reports came from south that French shires were lost. Now that this war warmed up, with all enemy forces here , it was time to win some battles and send Vikings back where they came from.

Panic on the battlefield. Commanders trying to rally soldiers and get them safe, at least what left of them, but there was to much panic in Croatian ranks. Borna was looking, and he was satisfied what he had done with his army, but much more work was needed to be done in order to get them at level Borna wanted. Battle was terrible, even it was less soldiers participating on both sides Borna could put it in same category with battles in Bosnia and Panonia. Vikings were fearsome, wild like animals, butchering everything on their path. Borna knew his soldiers did their best but this time it was not enough, next time will be, and next time is aproaching very fast.

A simple gift      09.02.2012 20:14:16 --- 2 Years, 2 Months ago  
On his way to next engagment with English Lions Borna finally unpacked something that was packed for long time. It was picture of him. It is old four years, but Borna didn't change much, except he now have nicely shaped beard. It was a gift, and a symbol. He summoned for his most loyal and trustfull servant.


"You asked for me your Grace?" asked Kristian

"Yes my friend. I have something for Chancellor Bella of England, and for her only."

" What is it if I may ask?"

" It is a picture of me." said Borna slowly with unusual trembling in his voice

Mocking smile ocured on Kristian's face but he simply said:

"Aye your Grace. I assume there is a letter also?

" It will be. Wait here"

Then Borna started to write:


QUOTE:
Dear Bella
Baroness of North Heaven
Chancellor of England

My lady,
Here is something I hope you will like. It is my gift to you and your beauty.

Borna


Here it is. Pack this again and dispatch it immediately.

Re:A simple gift      11.02.2012 13:13:52 --- 2 Years, 2 Months ago  
Finally having seen to her other duties, Bella found time to receive the next messenger.

"I am Kristian of Croatia and am sent by King Borna of Croatia with a message and a gift for you," he said.

"Thank you, please wait in the hall, I will presently send a message back," Bella replied. Then she read the message and unpacked the box - it turned out to contain be a portrait of King Borna. Bella gazed at the picture, the king had found an unusually talented artist, the picture looked as though it was alive. Why, the king, who was gazing out of the portrait with a grave smile, even had the most adorable dimples.

It seemed she had an admirer, first King Borna had called her a shiny star, now he had sent her his picture. And had signed his letter his letter most informally.

Bella had for a while felt rather lonely, when watching other young couples at court. However, out of the consideration that a marriage and the pregnancy that would inevitably quickly follow, would only serve to hold up her career, she had kept to herself so far. And having an affair and getting pregnant out of wedlock would be even worse of course. Only ladies of the highest rank and the greatest social standing could do so with impunity, secure in the knowledge, that none would dare frown upon them. Bella was not yet sufficiently sure of her social standing to risk it. If there was any reliable way to avoid pregnancy as a result from trysts, no one had yet informed Bella about it and in those home-remedies she had heard rumors of, she placed no faith.

It was of course grossly unfair, no one blamed the men, for taking lovers wherever they pleased, the sin and social stricture forever was placed squarely on the women. And the men would not have to deal with the fruits of a tryst either.

So, since Bella did not want to have any children yet for a few years, it seemed she would have no choice, but to endure her cold and lonely bed and to make do with fantasies.

Bella sighed and once again gazed at King Borna's portrait. Now might she have here found a candidate for a beautiful courtly love and chaste romance, making no further demands on her; which was so difficult to find between men and women?

In light of the informal tone of his letter, Bella's reply was equally informal:

QUOTE:
Dear King Borna,

thank you for your gift. I have long cherished hearing the traveller's tales of your valiant deeds in battle and admired your reputation for of impeccable honour, you enjoy in Europe. I see now that you are indeed a most handsome figure of a man, too. Indeed, I hold you in the highest esteem. Even if we are destined never to meet, know that my thoughts will dwell with you and you will be ever in my heart.

Yours faithfully Bella


Bella called back Kristian, gave him the letter and sent it off.

Only after the messenger had left, did Bella begin to have second thoughts. Had she been too daring? And would King Borna remain safely away on the continent, where he could be an object of her admiration from afar, but she would not be called upon to do anything more?

France invaded English shires. Borna was curious why King Black Raven invaded England and was sure that it was misunderstanding. Borna didn't want to participate in any side so he simply stayed with army on place. He used that time to figure a proper response for Bella.


He used it well, and since two English armies came for mock battles Borna hope he will meet her. Who knows maybe she is in one army. Only he joped not to meet her for battle field. He wasn't sure could he hit her, and that could cost him a lot.


So Borna send letter to her:


QUOTE:
Dear Bella


As you allready know battle is going to happen soon bettwen Croatian and English forces. I hope to meet you after battle and I really don't like even though that we could meet on batle field.

After all ods are not good for us since again you outnumbered us which is perfectly fine to me since it means more fighting for me.

In hope to meet you soon,
Borna


ps. if you will be in battle, run away from knight wielding battle axe

"Hufft," Bella snorted while reading the letter. "Run away?" She looked at the Croatian forces, which were taking up positions opposite the English knights. Finally.

Due to some logistic difficulties amongst the Croatians, the match had been delayed by a month. During that time another English army had wandered over to join the originally carefully sized English party, so that now indeed the English forces markedly outnumbered the Croatians.

At least King Borna had redeemed himself in time and had finally got around to returning her messages. That meant Bella would not be forced to particularly seek him out and beat him up on the field of battle. Her pride had begun to feel rather bruised at what had seemed a callous rejection of her tender feelings and she had begun making vindictive plans for King Borna; his message had reached her just in time. Still, judging from the letter he had sent her, he seemed to have a wrong impression of her character, she was after all no wilting violet, no coward to run at the first sign of battle, but an English knight and a fighter!

She jotted down a short note and sent it over with a herald:

QUOTE:
Dear Borna,

I look forward to meeting you. You need have no concern; if we do meet in battle, I will enjoin our knights, not to put more holes into yours, than strictly necessary to assure our victory.

Eagerly awaiting our meeting

I remain yours truly
Bella

Borna could see English ranks marching forward to meet his host. He was proud on his troops. He set standard deployment of his army and waited till all is set. Then at one moment, Borna saw rider crosing field with great speed with white flag. He already started to fell a litle anger thinking that Englishmans had some troubles. He personally went to meet English rider. Rider saluted him and handed a leter. Borna was surprised.

He read it, then he read it again, and again.

Then Borna started to laugh, laugh like he didn't for long time.


Then Borna dismounted from his horse, and asked rider to do the same. Rider listened, with strange look.


"I have nothing to write with so you will remember this message. Tell her that I haven't expect anything else from here. You will also give her this. Stand still."

Then he aproached to man and kissed him in cheek. Then he whispered in his ear:

"If you tell to anyone, any living person except your Baroness, I will kill you. Do you understand this? "

Man simply noded his head obviously in shock.

Borna then mounted again and went back to his army.

Bella stood amidst the English knights, buckling up her armor and strapping on her shield, when the herald returned from the Croatian forces.

"My Lady, I am to tell you from King Borna that he did not expect anything else. Also he told me to give you something." The herald faltered, caught in an awkward position under the interested gazes of the whole English army and unsure how to complete the king's message.

Finally he stepped close to the Chancellor and whispered to her: "He kissed me and told me to pass the kiss on to you."

Bella's gaze turned speculative.... "Oh indeed?"

But there was no time for further thought on the matter, the English horns were blowing for the charge towards the Croatian knights.

On the left flank the English cavalry thundered towards the Croatians, closely followed by the foot soldiers on the right.

In the first pass Bella's gelding stumbled on some unseen obstacle on the ground, causing Bella to be hit by a Croatian knight. But then her horse found his stride again and she got into a proper rhythm of parrying and hitting. Once she faced a knight, who by his shield and coat of arms must have been King Borna himself, but the tide of battle carried them apart again, before she could take a closer look at him. Out of the corner of her eye she saw him two other English knights, before she had to concentrate on the Croatian knight facing her again.

Finally there were no more opponents left standing on the field and Bella came to a halt with her lathered gelding, exhausted and out of breath herself.

"Bring me some water", she called to a passing soldier, before she dismounted and sat down atop a boulder, to rest.
