Brienna heard a knock at her door and scrambled to her feet, sliding her shoes back on. She answered the door and nodded murmuring something to the person on the other side. Brienna came back to him a moment later. "Tom says that Samuel will be going back to the quarters in a few minutes. He is waiting outside to take you to him."
Brienna smiled softly. "In a few days I'll be going to the country home with the queen for a few weeks. I'll ask for you to be assigned to go with us. I would like it if you did."
Brienna took his hand in hers, again noticing the size difference she chuckled. Her eyes fell back to his and she blushed a little. "Come on, let's get you to Samuel."
Over the next few days Brienna was so busy getting the queen ready and packed for her trip she barely got to see Jason from across the room once in awhile. She did get him assigned to the trip so at least she knew they would get some time to see each other then. The thought of spending time with Jason made her smile so much so that Elizabeth noticed and asked her about it."So are you smiling so much because of that man I saw you with the other night?"
Elizabeth inquired teasingly.
Blushing at the unexpected question Brienna nodded. "Yes, I really like this man. I care about him a lot." "Shall I make it a match for the two of you?"
Horrified at the thought of being forced to marry someone no matter who it was, sent tremors of fear down her spine. "Oh no! Please don't do that. If it is meant to be that way then it will on it's own. I don't want either of us forced into a marriage that we aren't completely certain of. It's only been a few days and I've barely seen him. I'm hoping for some time with him in the country.""You are right. I won't force the issue."
Elizabeth had gotten a rise out of Brienna and that made her giggle just a little bit.@Joker892
