Chapter 6 Day four at Whitby a day of Shocks
Gaby awoke to find Maddy cuddled up to him. “Maddy are you awake are you coming on the morning bike ride?”
“Come on Gaby it is not daylight yet. No riding today”
“No we have to get ready and by the time we are it will be time for the ride with the team.”
Gaby opened the door and walked out of the room along the passage there was a young soldier half asleep.
“Hi thought this was just a dream is you real.”
“I only just arrived & got posted here immediately. The guard before me told me to watch out for some snotty nose princesses who take guards into their rooms & then they are never seen again. Personally I think he was teasing me to see how I react. Do you mind telling me what you are doing up at this hour.”
“Sure I am junior captain for Apollonaris Angels & I am going for my morning ride.”
“In that case I better accompany you.”
On the bottom floor the guard said, “I have to accompany the Angels captain on her morning ride.”
“OK I will send somebody else to the floor.”
They got to Godfrids van and Gaby opened it with a key. “Now let’s see you could use my spare bike. Those clothes are not going to be very comfortable to ride in. I think we might have some spare in here if you care to change into them in the van and I will not look.”
“Sure no problem.”
“I take it you are German? Soon I will have to go over there to race and train.”
“Actually I am Austrian from Innsbruck.”
“Been there & paid to go into the Royal Palace. Had great fun on skis in Upper Inn Valley stayed in a place called Ried. It was quite close to Switzerland & we went several times to a village called Samnaun.”
“I know Ried as I was born there. Did you see the water fountain & go bowling?
“Sure the Bowling alley had one lane & my sister threw a ball badly and this elderly lady came and waved her finger at her. We also went to the nightclub that was a laugh all we could afford was the entrance fee, which included one drink. The waitress at the hotel was funny. She would say you could pay me tonight. What she actually wanted us to do was buy cigs in Switzerland for her. She was a good waitress so we did, as she wanted. Come to think of it that holiday we went round in mini coaches & we always had the same driver. Fritz was his name he would say Only Yorkshire no English. We had a great time with him. He would sing along with us.”
The guard went quiet and Gaby noticed tears in his eyes.” Sorry if something I said upset you although I have no idea what it is.”
“The Fritz you described was my grandpa he died in an aircraft accident at Holland the plane he was on went into a block of flats many people got killed. That is why I am sad. I am glad you have happy memories of him. Well how do look?”
“You will do fine. In fact you can shower in my room when we get back. I wonder were the others have got to. Oh well it looks like it is the two of us. You are not doing to bad with my bike. I take it you like riding?
“Used to but I do not get much chance now as I am in Austrian Army.”
“Do you mind if I tell you something your nipples are rather prominent & you should consider wearing a bra?”
The soldier stopped and again burst into tears. “Papa was pleased when I joined the Army. He said it would make a man of me. I started changing soon after signing on & wondered if I should go and see the doctor.”
“No need for that, when we get back I will call the team doctor while you shower.”
“Thanks I am called Stephan although soon I might be Stephanie. How do I explain what is happening to me. I am going to be the freak of my unit.”
“Actually Stephan it happens here quite often. I know it has happened to several grand daughters of Renate of Bavaria. & to two of her great nieces. I think though I will ask her to arrange your transfer to the Angels.”
At this Stephanie said, “In that case I am in good company. Mum is one of Renate’s older daughters. Some of my Aunts are the same age as me. By any chance do you know if my Aunt Sonja & my cousins Greta & Isolde are here? Sonja is in the ladies team so she should be. Isolde has been very ill and Greta is bike mad.”
“Yes all three are here once we get back to my room I will call her for you.”
They noticed another soldier was on the floor. “That is the one who teased me.”
Gaby spoke to the soldier, “It looks like the ghost got another victim. We found these clothing in the basement. All we found left of him was a pile of dust and these. It is the same every time she marks them and then chases them to the basement. I suppose we will have to notify somebody Stephan is no more.” As Gaby spoke the lights went on and off then the soldier felt something hit him. “Sorry it looks like you must be the next victim. Sorry we have to go into our room.” There was a ghostly wail and the light flickered again the soldier made his way to the end of the passage. Once again the lights went off. That was too much he fled terrified.
Gaby was getting dressed when there was a knock at the door Beatrice & sister were there. “Hi the Royal practical jokers thought we better come across and say hello. We wondered what uniform was required for the day? “
“All casual we have a coach ride and a train ride. Then we sing in the Abbey at Whitby after that it is shopping & time on the beach. I take one of you was the lights and the other was the wailing?
“He took off like a bat out of hell. Imagine a German prince like him terrified. We intend to take it further & ask all the girls to say she as marked you as the next victim.”
Gaby rang Sonja & asked if she and her daughters would come to the room immediately regardless of how they were dressed.
A minute or two later they appeared. “What is so urgent you require me here?”
Gaby with a straight face said, “I have to break some sad news to you. Your nephew Stephan is no more he went to the basement earlier this morning and did not return. If you do not believe me I have his uniform all neatly folded here.”
“I suppose it was him who screamed as if a banshee was after him.”
“No that was us two scaring Prince William of the Rhine. If you see him, say I see she has marked you and will come for you when the time is right.”
“Ok we will do that and pass the message on. Now what is the true reason I was summands here.
Gaby spoke “Perhaps it would be better to introduce Princess Stephanie of the Tyrol.”
“There is no Princess Stephanie of the Tyrol.”
“Hi Aunt I beg to differ. As mum is not here I asked Gaby to call you and my cousins. I need clothing to fit me and I thought of you. Also can you break it to mum she now has a daughter & not a son.”
“I always said you were far to pretty to be a boy. I take it you have now been transferred to the Angels?”
“I am not sure Captain Gaby said she would arrange it through Granny.” This brought a giggle from the other girls.
“I will have you know Captain Gaby has been a good friend to me unlike William of the Rhine who tried to scare me & got scared himself.
“William scared never. He always puts on a show that he is big and brave.”
“Beatrice spoke I can assure you as a Princess of York he ran like a fox being chased by a pack of hounds.”
Sonja laughed and said, “Before we go can I make a call to Austria?
Eventually she got through & spoke to her sister. Yes I understand & I am not surprised. I will have to break it to my husband. Also I will contact the remaining princesses & we will all come across as soon as we can.”
Sonja said, “Well we had better get you back to our room and see what we can find for you. Your mother has told me to get you fitted out with all that was needed. So we will be shopping.”
There was a knock at the door it was a very nervous William. “I have to come and collect the uniform of the late Prince Stephan.”
Sonja handed him the uniform & then said, “I would get that mark off your shoulder it looks like a hand print. If I was you I would do that before Ulrig spots it.”
Beatrice said, “It looks like a shiny green hand print like a girls. You did not happen to be on duty on this level did you? Perhaps you have been playing kissy-Kissy with one of the girls. Was the temptation to much for you?”
“Err yes I was on this floor, but only for a short while.”
Sonja said, “Well it does look like a green girl’s handprint to me. Have you been sneaking off with a girl rather than doing your duty.”
“No I have not been playing kissy-kissy nor sneaking off with any girl.”
After he departed Beatrice said, “He fled down the passage with the uniform like the previous time.”
“I cannot believe he fell for that. I can see he is in for a lot of teasing from his cousins. Perhaps he should guard you all on the coach. Now back to our room and then we have our breakfast.”
In the dining room they noticed a very white prince William stood to attention.
After they had eaten Renate called him over and said, “I presume you heard about poor Stephan. I want you to bring all his things to my room. His father will be pleased to have his uniform. My daughter is coming to collect everything so make sure you have it all. Now what is this story about you deserting your post while on duty? Andrew what is the penalty in the British Army for deserting your post while on active service”?
“That is easy they get shot. It is the same with the German & Austrian forces.”
Beatrice spoke, “Actually dad there are exceptions if the person is a sissy or a Royal sissy otherwise there will be no reprieve & they are shot at dawn.
Renate spoke, “Well of course you are not a sissy are you? And you certainly would not desert your post knowing the consequences would you? Now just as demonstrations as to the treatment of a Royal sissy will you lay across my knee. Yes this is fine now if you had been a sissy then the punishment is totally different. Girls pleas note the position Prince William is in I recommend a number two-hair brush so please take note in case you come across a sissy. They are simple-minded creatures and cannot think for themselves. So even the forces give them special treatment. They may get a wife but she will have to be the strong one. Now note how I position the brush and bring it down hard. She gave William 10 spanks.
Isolde said, “Nana I missed some of the demonstration as Prince William is enjoying himself so could we all have a practise.
Sigfried asked Gaby what she thought. “Well I could not agree to any torture or anything but as he volunteered perhaps two with the brush from every Princess present & five from those whose also hold the title Countess or above in their own right.
Andrew left laughing with Sigfried. “Even my daughters wanted a go.”
All too soon they were finished and tears were streaming down Williams face. “See girls even brave prince William can be brought to tears. Now as I understand he has to accompany you today as your protection. How ever it would be obvious he was your protection if he went in his uniform.”
Sonja spoke, “Have we a couple of volunteers to find William something that will fit?”
Ellen spoke, “We have something that will do for today but he will have to get his own things. However we will help him shop for what he needs.”
“Right girls take him to your room.”
In the room William was ready to run when he saw what they brought out. Ellen said, “This should be a good disguise for you & nobody will know you are a boy. Now remember it is better to be a live sissy than a dead Prince so what is it to be. William Stripped down to his underwear and put on the items. Ellen shook here head. "No girls something is wrong. Take the shorts off and put on these panties.” William did as he was told. “No it is still wrong. I know take the top off and lay on the bed.” Ellen glued some jelly like objects to his chest. Now all you need is the bra and the top can go back on. Just pout your lips like this. That is better now we can go. When we get time we will paint your nails for you.
Greta landed in with a bright red wig. “I thought he had better have this as we do not want anybody to think he is a sissy would we? After all William voluntary went on Grannies knee and agreed to be spanked. I also brought some barbie pink nails they should not take long to attach.”
Ellen attached the wig with the same glue she had attached the breasts. “Right you will not look out of place on our coach now. We had better go there now.”
Nena checked them all onto the coach. “I thought there was to be a boy?”
Ellen, “He decided it would be safer if a female came instead so we brought Wilma with us. Prince William has stayed behind to see if he can find out more about the phantom girl.”
“Yes that is ok but a little fool hardy. You know she goes for young boys. Now if William was a Sissy or wore a dress she would ignore him.” William stored this information in his head for use later.
The coaches set off for Pickering it is a market town in Ryedale and in the National park. The journey was about 20 miles west from the coast. The coaches pulled up outside the station.
They all went onto Pickering station. There was a sign that said Whitby platform 1 and on platform 2 it said To Leeds however the track no longer went in that direction it was a victim of the Beecham cuts of the 1960’s. The line to Whitby had only recently been reopened. A BR Stanier Black 5 engine brought the coaches into Pickering station. The coaches were in the colours of the now defunct Great Eastern Railway.
They all boarded the coaches and found there were individual compartments for about eight people and closing the sliding door could separate them. There was a passage that ran the length of the coach. The Engine set off belching thick clouds of smoke into the air. The going was slow but that was due to regulations about private companies and how fast the engine was allowed to go.
While on the train the girls decided to sort Wilma’s hair and paint her toes. Nena called in to see if they were ok. Ellen said, “Wilma was a little late getting across to replace William we wondered if we could borrow some makeup?”
“What I have would not be suitable. Perhaps it would be better if I sent the Royal Beautician. I will be back in a short time.
Ellen said, “If she has time we would all like a make over. Does she use permanent?
A short time later Nena arrived back. The beautician looked at the nails and said I can do better than those plastic ones allow me to sort them out for you. My you are a quiet one are you always like this?”
Ellen said, “She is just a little shy around strangers.”
The beautician did the faces of all the girls & then she said, “I will do your hair for you and then you will be as pretty as your sisters.”
After she had gone William said, “She did not suspect I was a boy.”
She reported back to Renate, “I did the same as you requested and gave him permanent makeup. He actually asked me to do his face & allowed me to replace the nails the girls had put on him with a full acrylic set.”
Renate spoke to the others in the same compartment. “We are not sure if the gene runs in his line or not. An experience of what the others feel like should mellow him though. Sonja I will pay for his attire will you ensure though the girls help him choose appropriate clothing. I remember when his father acted pompous with some of his sisters, & they dressed him up & his father found him. He got a lecture and was told; as you wished to dress like that you will do everything your sisters do and dress like them. After that I will review your punishment. After that month the threat was all that was needed to bring him into line.
Nena’s mother spoke “Renate my child is happy either as male or female. Unfortunatly he has the gene and will eventually turn fully female. I understand I am to be a Grandma. I am a little disappointed they did not wait. Then I can also understand if they had I might not be a grandmother.”
“Same here with my Julia & neither I nor Julia suspected she was engaged to her cousin.
Back in London.
The Royal college of Heralds perused over the documents brought from Granny Bonds house. The chief herald went to see the Queen.” Your Majesty it is certain the child is whom she is supposed to. We have double-checked the witness signatures and they are surprising. John Brown, The Prince of Wales, Prime Minister & The Tsar. Whilst the general public did not know about the wedding the Royal family in several countries did. We also discovered an interesting document the document creates a dukedom of Northumbria & gives the holder all rights to minerals and levy taxes in the Ancient kingdom of Northumbria. There is an actual plan of the area concerned. In the South it runs from Lincolnshire in a straight line across country to the Welsh boarder, and encompassing all of Leicestershire, Derbyshire across to Cheshire along with bits of adjoining counties. In the North it runs from just above Glasgow in the west in a direct line to just above Edinburgh in the east and it includes all the land between the North and South boundary line. The document gives this area to Robert Batterburg king of the three Germany’s. He is to be referred to in future documents as James Peters-Bond.
This action had been sanctioned by the parliament of the time and in effect created a new country of Northumbria with Robert as its king. What we have is a carbon copy of the original document. I was hoping to let this slide however the Germans & Russians have also discovered a similar document in their files.”
I need to see my grandsons William & Harry I have an important job for them both”
“Granny you wanted to see us?”
“Yes boys your country needs you to drop your current girlfriends. William you will marry a Queen & Harry you the sister. For neither of you will there be a get out clauses like three of my children. I am announcing your engagement tonight. The Prime minister agrees with my decision, as does your father. He has had to agree to you William being my heir. I must stress it is of the utmost importance the weddings take place If you do not wish to see your birthright torn asunder. If I am still alive when your Queen comes of age William then I will abdicate so you can rule jointly.”
Prince Phillip spoke. “While currently they are too young to get married there is no reason why you both cannot become engaged. Phillip pulled a couple of photos out. “Boys look at your future wives. Your Uncle Andrew took the photos & left his daughters to be with the new Queen. You two will come next week to the Yorkshire show with us.”
In Yorkshire the Train had pulled into Whitby station.
Nena and the party arrived at Whitby station. The station was packed with train spotters that had come to see the Black 5. By chance there was a reporter from the Whitby Gazette. He was a sports buff and recognised Gaby Bond.
Gaby is it true that you like your mother have signed up with Apollonaris from Germany?”
Gaby stopped and spoke to the reporter. “Yes they are sponsoring a junior team as well as a senior one. As an experiment and so we all get to know each other we are all spending a month in England.
At the Abbey they found Bishop Richard Seed had turned up he had with him additional cassocks in gold for the angels and black for the remainder. Bishop Richard took the service jointly with Cardinal Waibel. Then it was time for some free time in the town
Stephanie was all excited while Wilma continued to be quiet, as she did not want people to recognise her as a boy. Both of them were in for a shock as they found their mothers were waiting outside a department store. Nena noticed two coats of arm were being painted and the words by Appointment to Siegfrid Regent of Bavaria & the other said by Appointment to Grand Duchess Renate of Bavaria.
“Ah our daughters. Stephanie grinned and spoke, “Mum I need absolutely everything.” Wilma kept quiet. Poor William did not know what to answer when the lady asked her questions so she remained quiet.
“Oh you are a quiet one is this your first time being measured for your bra?
Wilma nodded her head up and down. Ellen said, “We loaned her one so she could here.”
The woman measured her and said, “My you are large I bet they hurt without support.”
The assistant made several recommendations to her mother who said, “We will take a selection of those you recommended in addition I wondered if she should wear a corset as she as been slouching a lot.”
“On in that case we have the latest laser measuring device. The client has to go into that room and strip off completely then the device measures and recommends what corset is suitable. In fact it can fit one if you so desire. I would recommend the young lady He holds the metal bars above her head.
Madam we have stores in all these towns and they all now have the same machine. It is surprising how many mothers want their daughters to have a suitable figure to attract a husband. To many pretend they are boys. Why only the other day one girl had shaved her hair off and said she was a boy. The mother had us fasten a good wig on her. With the glue we used it should last six months. By then her own hair will have started to grow through it.
William did as he was told and stripped of and entered the machine. There were digital instructions. He followed the instructions. Sex was shown as female, Age 16, Type Caucasian hair Red and eyes green. He put on the glasses and raised his hands as instructed. The machine seamed to close around him. He felt warmth across his body.
Out side the woman was explaining the laser also removed all unwanted body hair. Most girls want this option and it only takes a few seconds. The woman presses a button.
Ellen spoke, “The machine will it recognise silicone enhancements. Wilma was upset she was so flat that I let her have mine and they were glued on.”
“Do not worry the silicone inserts will have been melted away by now and the machine will have enhanced her breasts for her. Eventually the machine stopped making a noise and it opened to revealed Wilma wearing only a corset and pants. The woman looked at the printout. Her size has change slightly. She might need help until she gets more comfortable.
Stephanie said, “Mummy I am so jealous of Wilma being fitted for a corset can I have a try?
Yes dear every girl should try one at least once. I must admit she does look to have a great body now. I think though I will be a little too large to try it.”
Actually madam it will burn off excess weight and leave even the largest lady as a size 12. We have many ladies who have been told to diet by their doctors come to us and a short time later they are a whole new woman.”
The only three not present were Gaby; Nena & Julia all the other ladies went into the machine. Those three were on the beach trying to get a tan. The younger girls did not change much. Renate when she came out was a third the weight she previously had been. Needles to say the store again did a roaring trade. Renate said, “I have just remembered I negotiated a special discount with the management in Scarborough.
The woman smiled and said, “I will book it all to you and then you can sort it out with the others.”
William spoke, “Mum when can I get out of this?
“Well I have to keep mine on for a month and can only just have a wash so I presume you will be the same. Do not worry I can take you to another store to get another if you wish.”
“Actually madam the child will need to come into the store every week to see it is still fitting correctly. You on the other hand are no longer growing and so the corset will stay on longer. In a months time I recommend you cut the laces and take a bath then come for another fitting. The corset is self-cleaning and does not need cleaning. In fact the manufacturers say you can take a bath with it on although I have never tried that.”
Wilma could not see her feet because of her breasts. She shook her head when she saw how excited Stephanie was. Wilma said, “I need the toilet.”
Stephanie said, “I will come with you Wilma us girls have to stick together.” In the toilet Stephanie said, “You have truly screwed yourself. You asked the beautician to do face and nails. Then you do not object when they fit you for a bra. Now that machine has removed your body hair and given you real breasts like you were a real girl. Now you will be in corsets for a long time I do not think your mother intends ever letting you out of them. As to whether Willie has gone I do not know.”
Wilma started to cry,” No that cannot be true you are teasing me,
Wilma pulled her panties down and sat down. She was startled to find there was nothing there. Then she started to scream Stephanie went and got Wilma’s mother. “Wilma dear what is the problem?
“Mummy there is nothing there and I am bleeding.”
“Yes dear it happens to all us ladies. It is our way of preparing to make a baby. I will pass you through what you need just put it into your pants.
Ellen said, “I take it that Wilma has completely transformed and I can inform Grandpa there will be no Royal sissy after all. Now there is nothing stopping us from being friends. Perhaps she will be nicer to us in future.”
Nena’s telephone went off. “Time girls we got back to the coaches and see how the others got on.” They made their way back to the railway station and found the coaches. They were the first three back.
Greta came and spoke, “Nena can we come back next week as there was a lot of places we did not get too. Unfortunatly we all got involved with Princess Stephanie & Wilma.”
Meanwhile the two princes went to see Andrew. “Uncle Andrew sir could you fly us up to Yorkshire. So we can check out what we are getting into.”
“I think boys we will have to get you a case each & you both better get in dress uniform. I have to collect some clothing for your cousins. I thought you might need these rings if you are to follows the Queens order. I have had a file prepared on each on so you know something about them.”
William read the file and said, “Harry we have met them before. It was when we went with the girls to a bike race. Beatrice followed the adventures of the race winner.”
“Oh I remember she was there with her twin.”
The coaches had made the short trip back to Scarborough. Shortly after they arrived the sound of a helicopter landing. Beatrice said, “Daddy is back,”
The three entered the hotel Andrew called at reception. There are some bags in the helicopter can they be taken to the correct rooms. Because of security concerns North Yorkshire police had closed the road by the Royal.
Harry spoke, “William they are both crackers this is one order I will enjoy.”
Gaby spoke, “Welcome back Andrew. I see you have brought me two dishy princes. Are they also to be my protection?
William spoke, “Actually we are hopeful that you will allow us to be your permanent protection.”
“William Wales I am an old fashioned girl and you will have to ask permission off my father and then you must go down on one knee.”
Andrew brought out a camera as both boys turned to Dave Bond and said may we become engaged to your daughters?
With that they both went down in front of Gaby & Maddy and proposed to them.”
Renate said, “Bravo that is how it should be done. Your late mama would be pleased with you.”
William spoke, “Grandma asks we all go to the ballroom and switch on the television at 19.30 the broadcast will go on all channels.
Andrew spoke, “Before we eat I need to contact the palace to say I will be staying on here. The pictures Andrew took got sent to the palace.
Prince Phillip said, “Well dear they wasted no time in proposing.”
“It makes the job I have to do tonight far easier and I think this should be shown after my appearance on the television.”
The group went in for their evening meal. Then they all went back to the ballroom where the broadcast was being shown on a massive wide screen television.
Queen Elizabeth appeared in front of a fire. “William said that is in Buckingham Palace.”
“Ladies and Gentlemen of Britain, the Commonwealth and Europe I apologise for disrupting your viewing however something that affects you has happened. A couple of days ago I got a request from the German & Austrian governments if they could use the Royal heralds. I gave my permission. I thought it was Bavaria that had found the royal seal and so could finally instate Sigfried as king instead of him being Regent. During the inspection a document was discovered that recreated the kingdom of Northumbria taking parts of England and parts of Scotland. As from midnight last night a new country was created with its capital in York.”
“The other thing that shocked me was that the Germans & Austrians have both agreed to accept Gabriel Battenberg as their new Queen. She will also be the new Queen of Northumbria.”
Finally as queen I wish to announce the formal engagement of my Grand sons William & Harry to Gaby & Maddy Bond-Peters. Their mother is the ladies international champion. So you all may see the proposal I had Andrew film it and send it to me at the palace.” The telephone system to the palace almost as soon as the broadcast stopped started to get people ringing with their congratulations. For the rest of the night normal service was forgotten as plans of the new country were shown. Then pictures of the happy couples were shown.
The Prime Minister went on air later with the senior Royal Herald. “Can you tell us why the labour government has decided to give half the country away asked Domenic Littlewood?”
The Prime minister took a deep breath and replied, “Actually there was nothing we could do the decision was taken by a previous queen & parliament who gifted the land to her husband. In effect we have been an occupying state for over 100 years. In addition to the document the Scottish Assembly had petitioned the English government to redraw the boundaries. When we saw this document we realised the boundaries had been redrawn a long time ago.”
The Herald spoke, “As you may have already guessed the Queen was Victoria & the husband was Robert Battenburg king of the three Germanys. This was part of the marriage settlement. Gabriel Battenberg his direct. Descendant and was born and brought up in Britain. It is only recently she discovered her heritage. America & all the European countries have already recognised the new country, and it will become a member of the EEC with immediate effect.
Nena noticed Gaby’s elder sister was sat alone crying. “Has it got too much for you? Or are you feeling a little left out. You do realise it will not be a bed of Roses for Gaby.”
“No it is not that. My tennis and badminton partner is German. He is so dishy & your heart just melts when you look into his eyes.” Jools had not noticed the four elder ladies sit down and listen.” He has blond hair and blue eyes and a tiny scar on his face. He told me he got that in a fight. I have been giving him hints now for some time that he should propose.”
Renate said, “Quite right.”
“I asked him in the end & he said, “I have to do it correctly & ask permission before I speak with your papa. He then got called back to Germany on family buisiness. Whilst in Germany he got called up into the army & I do not know when I will see him again.” She started crying all over again. When she recovered she said, “The last message I got was he was hoping to get to Munich to ask permission.
Renate said, “It is obvious to us all this boy has stolen your heart. What is his name & where in Germany does he live?
“He lives in Saxony with his older brother & family. The older brother is walking out with a girl called Maria Tech or something similar.”
Renate said, “Is he this is interesting continue.”
“Markus von Bismarck is his name I joked you are named after a battleship that got sunk. His brother is called Mannfrid & he brought Maria to watch us play a match or two. Maria is the same as me waiting for the boy to propose. I feel better now telling somebody. As for being jealous of Gaby no way. She can have her bikes and races. Once she marries William the press will be poking their cameras in their bedroom window. Give me my blond Saxon any day. I am going to bed now. I suppose it will be back to normal in the morning & we will have training runs again.”
Renate looked at her sisters and said, “I think it is time we went into the granny match making business. First though I need to get Maria’s granny over here.”
“Sister my Nena informed me Ulrig had given instructions the remaining princess had to come here so I assume Maria will be with them.
“In that case Ulrig is our next problem.” A message was sent the matrons wished to speak with him.”
Ulrig appeared I got the message you wanted to discuss a private matter with me.”
Renate spoke, “Well have you any information to tell us Ulrig?”
“Sorry I have no idea what you want me to tell you.”
Gaby's Grandmother said. “In that case I will enlighten you. Mannfrid walking out with Maria and secondly Markus with my elder grand daughter.”
“Oh I did not realise it had got to that stage with either of them. I will have a word with them when I get back. I wondered why they both appeared to be depressed.”
Renate spoke, “You will not say a word to them. The girls are having a relaxing day in Scarborough tomorrow. While they are out we four plus Maria’s grandmother wish to speak to both boys. I take it Maria should be here soon.”
“Yes they will get in about midnight. I have made all the arrangements.”
