Jane was more than four months pregnant when the child first stirred within her, a little fluttering like a butterfly's wings. She was sitting with Henry in the great park, watching her maids playing catch with a ball.
"Oh!" she exclaimed, as the fluttering came again. "Henry, feel!" She grabbed his hand and placed it on her belly, across which her kirtle was now stretched tight.
"The child?" he asked, in wonder.
"Yes, wait! There!"
"By God, it is! You have quickened!" He was ecstatic.
