This is where the thrones of the royal lay. There is one for each member, while royal knights sit in seats on either side of the room. Important family meetings and courts are held here.
Eleanor drifted into the throne room, moving almost like a wind rather than a person. It was rather empty in comparison to what it normally was, which meant being filled with the entire royal family and a bunch of nobles quarreling over land or other petty matters. She ran a hand over her own throne. No dust. "Perfect..." She said under her breath with a pleased smile. Anything that was hers was meant to be kept perfect, clean and tidy. Eleanor sat down, despite being queen for years it was still an odd, but satisfying feeling.
Eleanor smiled when she saw her husband enter the large room, it wasn't too often they'd see each other through out the day without other people running around them so it was a pleasant surprise. "Well, hello!" She said giving him a polite smile. "How has your day been?" She asked courteously.
"I finished off the days work early today and as most of the children are either fine on their own or busy as of the moment I have had some time to relax for once." She explained contentedly. "So I'd say it has been a lovely day so far." She declared her smile still present on her face. In truth she had a good deal of work left, but what was left were things that she had planned on doing for her husband to save him some work and weren't required to be done quite yet nor were they required to be done for a few days. "You know, we've been getting many more papers to fill out recently, it is quite exhausting." She told him wondering how he was holding up under the stress of all the work.
Eleanor smiled, she found it to be very kind that he cared about such things. "You should know by now that I'm not the type of person to hand my work off to someone else." She told him calmly. "Everyone has jobs to d and they should be doing them within a timely manner and if I can't do so then it is up to me to compensate for that flaw, but it will be done so I shall not have to compensate for anything." She explained finding such a way of life to be optimal.
"As I said, I'll be fine." Eleanor told him reassuringly. "I'd like to know, there has been public uproar and this idea of revolution, how do you feel about it?" She asked. Eleanor didn't care what happened as long as she could maintain the life she has been given and could make sure her family stayed together, but the best way to be sure of that was to guarantee everyone was on the same page. If it came down to it she would take down each and every person in the entire kingdom herself if it meant keeping her family in good care.
"Interesting..." Eleanor responded whilst in deep thought about his answer. "In that case you have my support, however, even I see this as having the potential to go to far," She told him warily. "if you aren't well planned out you lose a workforce and then the economy collapses, leaving all those of wealth with nothing." She told him, making sure he understood the possible consequences.
Eleanor smiled, tempted to see what exactly he was thinking about, however decided against it, he was more than allowed to have private thoughts. "I'm glad to hear that, just be careful with your choices." She told him sounding quite concerned. He was her husband and the king, but above that he was the father to their children and if he were to be lost in some way or another her family would no longer be perfect and that would be unacceptable. She took note of his opinions so that she would remember to keep an eye on what was happening with that situation. "So, have you seen any of the children yet?" Eleanor asked trying to change the subject.
Eleanor shook her head, slightly taken aback by the fact he thought their children would need to have a disscussion. "No, just thought that they would like to see you, you are their father after all." She explained with a faint sigh. "It's important they get to see you on a regular basis, not only is it good family wise, but they will catch on to your duties, preparing them for their own futures." She told him, further elaborating on previous point.
Eleanor smiled, it was good for him to spend time with his children, it also was a way to make sure he stayed grounded for lack of a better term. "I'm glad." She responded contentedly. "I'm sure they will be too" She continued, hoping to get across the point of how important it is that they see each other across.
"So what else has been happening throughout your day?" Eleanor asked him kindly. "I mean there must be other things you have done today." She said curiously. It never hurt to be a bit of a diary for him, it allowed him someone to share his thoughts with someone and kept her up to date with everything in the kingdom.
"I'm not sure if I quite agree, I've been doing the same things for the most part, after that I just spent my day walking around the castle." She told him rather dully. "I don't seen much interesting happening there, well excluding a cook dropping food all over himself." She explained smiling very slightly at the last part.
"One of the things I came across in my work was a dispute between two noble families..." She began, shaking her head at the thought of the story. "They are fighting over a certain farmer who built his house on the borders of both their lands. They are threatening to steal bread from each other if the other doesn't give them power over the farmer. Isn't that odd?" She asked, tilting her head and furrowing her brow.
"That is what I was thinking, stealing bread doesn't sound bad, but if they start doing that on a large scale it could starve many people." Eleanor explained quite seriously. "I believe you do, however, have the right to make both their claims null and void and make the patch of land solely yours." She told him, she herself considering it to be the quickest option.
Eleanor sighed, it was annoying that so many little things were becoming important nowadays with the whole idea of a revolution. "The papers are set up, you'll just have to sign them. Anyways, what do you want for dinner, I was asked by a server on my way here." She said curiously.
"We have all chosen recently, it is up to you, if I let someone choose it ruins the well thought out routine and it gets rather confusing..." Eleanor told him with a slight frown. "Anything works, as long as you decide." She explained calmly. Eleanor viewed it as important for them to maintain a proper schedule
"Roast duck it is." Eleanor stated, content with his response. "I was worried, if you couldn't decide what to have for dinner what kind of indecisive king would you be?" She asked teasingly. "I'll let Mia choose dessert, I'm sure she'll be happy about that." She told him with a faint smile gracing her face.
Eleanor raised an eyebrow. "I apologize, but you know how my abilities aren't always the easiest to control due to the potency of them." She stated, clearly not finished with what she was saying. ""I happened to have just come across your thoughts." She explained rather uncomfortably, but maintaining her ladylike disposition. "You have more meaning than you understand, your life has impact on hundreds of individuals, who in turn have effect on hundreds more. Of course you also, through our children, have effect that will last throughout time." She declared quite seriously. "Everyone has there time to shine and I feel yours still has yet to come, you will soon reach a point when you will be truly happy." She told him if not blatantly ordered.She was being very truthful, every person had to have at least one exquisite moment and he seemingly had not had his and it was therefore lying ahead, waiting for him.((I'm a bit tea deprived so sorry if that made absolutely no sense))
Eleanor sighed, shaking her head slightly. "Just make sure you understand your importance." She told him, sounding fairly concerned. "So many people depend on you and look up to you, even when you aren't happy, you have to act like it, it keeps everything else in order, it's just a little something I learnt years before I first met you, I was after all raised on such principles." She explained, hoping she got her point across well enough
"You worry me sometimes..." Eleanor muttered before recomposing herself. "I'll trust you." She stated, clearly expecting him to follow through. "Now you'll have to excuse me for a brief moment..." She began, resting her head in her hand. "I'm currently hearing the thoughts of all the people in the castle at once right now..." Eleanor explained, annoyed by the excessive noises in her mind.
"It's fine, I just need a second of quiet, I'll be fine in a moment..." She said, trying to focus on tidying everything up in her head. "These moments make me seem so pathetic..." She muttered, frustrated by the flaw in her ability. This situation didn't happen often and she knew how to remedy the issue. She fixed her posture, and inhaled deeply waiting a moment before exhaling. She had already dealt with the problem, but she was just keeping herself from getting overly annoyed by the occurrence. "I'm fine now, thank you, I'll try not to have that happen again." She told him very well knowing that it would at some point, but likely not for a good while now. She was left with nothing, but a headache which she had no issue putting up with.
"Yes Christian, I'm fine." She stated dully with blatant finality. "Now, I hear that another country has collapsed economically, had it been a better time here I would have offered the people a place to stay, but alas, it is not a possibility right now." Eleanor told him solemnly. She would have asked for land in return, but found that to be a frivolous detail.
"Well..." She began, an idea popping into her head. "Perhaps we could let Leslie or Cray decide, they are the closest to the throne and it wouldn't be an overly destructive result if it failed." Eleanor explained, thinking that it was a good idea. In the end this decision had to be made by him, she didn't have the authority to surrender such a choice.
"A... Flutter?" She asked hesitantly, worried about him. She herself saw nothing, but then again she wasn't looking for anything. Eleanor rose from her seat and looked over to where he was pointing still seeing nothing. "Perhaps you would like to rest for today?" She offered, hoping that it wasn't a large issue.
"I do hope you aren't implying that I'm old..." She muttered under her breath. "I'm not sure why I can't, my hearing perhaps isn't the best," Eleanor told him, going along with it for the time being, it's best not to fight over little things. "Are you sure you wouldn't like to settle in for the day?" She offered again, in attempts to both change the topic and to be able to better diagnose the problem. The topic change was only so that he wouldn't get to hung up on things.
