The Minstrel’s Gallery – Tracy Fells

1650 words General Fiction / Historical

Thomas is a lute player and composer of songs at the Tudor court of Henry VIII.  He writes a love ballad for one of the Queen’s ladies, a dark-haired beauty he nicknames the Lady Greensleeves.  But the lady has set her ambitions on a lover much richer than a minstrel.

Her feet in woollen slippers made no sound, only the scrape of tired velvet across the gallery’s timber slats told me of her coming. That day the courage of a lion roared in my heart, as I looked up from my lute to brave a smile. The lady stopped to perch on the window seat beside me, dark midnight eyes glinting. “Do you have a tongue as well as teeth, minstrel boy?” Her voice was sweet as honey-cake, but with the tart after bite of sour apple.

It was my turn to provide the breakfast goodies for the Friday morning planning meeting. The day was a key event in the magazine’s schedule; time to decide the theme for the April edition. Of course I’m using the royal ‘we’, as I make all the decisions. Adoring all things sweet I knew of a delightful patisserie in Kensington, creating the most exquisite cup-cakes, truly beautiful works of fondant art: topped with pastel icing, pinks, lemons, baby-blues and luscious lilacs, sprinkled with glimmering balls of silver and gold. When I entered the boardroom the glass-topped table was festooned with open boxes, delivered from the bakery, and the meeting attendees were already greedily helping themselves to the dainty cakes.
