    The redhead tilted her head as she watched the brunette interact with the colt. That bright happiness was something special, like catching glimpse of two rainbows through raindrops. Magical even. It made Josephine's breath catch a bit in her chest, her heart fluttering a little at the sight of such unadulterated beauty. The redhead swallowed then shook her head, responding to the question that was posed to her. "Nay, I hadn't gotten around to given 'im a name yet."

    She paused and turned her attention back to the way the colt was nuzzling up to Isabella, something that rarely happened since this was quite the shy little colt. "Why don't you name him; he'll be yours after all." She looked back at the foal she was petting, laughing when the tip of her nose was given a nudge. "That's what I thought too. Glad I have your approval, Orlaigh," she said to the filly that was a warm golden color. "I named her that since it means Golden Princess in our native language. But don't tell Roderick that's where I got it from. He is of the mind that we should just forget our heritage and just accept what England wants because it would make things easier. I won't do it, though. I might have a British title, but I will always be Irish first."

    Isabella turned her attention back to Lady Josephine, the bold Irish-woman's gentle voice drawing her attention like a siren at sea. There was a brief moment where the two women stared at each other in silence, and even though it only lasted a second, Isabella swore it was longer. What in God's name was that? The girl thought to herself, trying not to get overly flustered in front of the woman. Then the focus was back on her colt.

    "Orlaigh," the brunette repeated, the word beautiful to her ears--and even more so coming from Josephine. "Oh, Roderick...I think that's quite a shame. I'd love to hear more about your heritage while I'm here if you have the time, Lady Josephine. If I were someone a bit more interesting, I'd hold on to that piece of me with all I've got." Isabella laughed quietly, shaking her head. "I think I'll name him Galileo. Suits him, black as the night sky, huh?" She looked back as Josie with a sly smile and a wink of her eye.

    "Well, Gal,"
    Isa said, turning her attention to the colt snuggling into the palm of her hand. "I hope you don't mind seeing me more. I think I might be around quite a bit, don't you think?" One more rub on the snout, and then she was standing back up again. "I'm curious to see what else your lovely home has on the property, just on the ride here I was surrounded by beautiful scenery. I'm sure you have a few secret views."

    Her cheeks felt a little pink from that playful wink and the sly smile on Isabella's lips. Such a bright girl, much more so than the gossips she usually dealt with in the social circles up toward Yorkshire. She attended the proper events as any lady of peerage should, but that didn't mean that she enjoyed their company much. No, most of them were insipid dullards who fluttered around the peacocks trying to prove who were the most eligible bachelors. Which Josephine had always found to be none of them, her gaze never really drawn even half as magnetically to them as it was to even Isabelle. Perhaps it was because she disliked their personalities so much?

    "Galileo, very fitting name, Isabelle. I would love to share with you our heritage some time if you would like. I'm not as well versed as our Uncle Padraig, but I have always paid attention to what he had to teach me during his visits. He said I was like my mother in most ways, perhaps a little more forceful in personality," she laughed. "I do know a few of my favorite views. I'll take you to them, no one will notice that we're gone for a few more hours."

    She led the brunette back toward the manor, but they didn't go inside. Rather, the redhead led her around to a well hidden stair case. At the end of the stair case was a small ladder to the roof of the manor. "Go ahead and ascend the ladder. I'll follow you up in case you slip. I'm in a better position to be able to catch you." The view from the roof of the manor was breathtaking, the sun setting over the Mourne Mountains in the distance. Some hawks could be seen flying in the distance, seeking out their last meal of the day.

    Once more the lilting sound of Josephine's laughter filled the room, and once more it gave Isabella butterflies in her stomach. She wondered if the other woman was thinking the sorts of things that she, herself thought; however she knew it hardly mattered. Isabella was here to wed Broderick--the unbelievably uptight and stifling brother of this free spirited, seemingly untamable woman. What an impossible situation, the brunette thought to herself as she followed the red haired woman around a few corners to a narrow staircase, tucked into the wall.

    Upwards the two women went, Josie leading the way. When they reached the ladder, Isa took a deep breath and grabbed onto the ladder.
    "Don't you let me fall, now. That'll be a hard one to explain," she teased as she climbed up rung by rung. After Isabella's head cleared the top of the ladder she paused for a moment, completely in awe over the view. A few moments later she stepped onto the roof of the massive estate, offering her hand to the Lady in aid.

    "I can't believe this view, Josie--what a beautiful picture," the young woman breathed once she was able to take in the full view. "I can only guess how much time you spend up here, just to get away from everybody. This is wonderful." And the sight absolutely was wonderful: the tall and thick trees filling the horizon with greenery and life; the strong mountains in the background; the beautifully groomed property of her betrothed's family in the foreground. It could've been a painting, and Isabella could've looked at it all day.

    Josephine laughed at the other woman's teasing. "I would simply carry you to the very base of the staircase and claim you fell there, your weak feminine constitution not being able to handle a fall of a step or two. Sadly, that would suffice," she giggled. Better to make fun of the notions that men had of them and their frailty than simply rail against them in futility. No, Josephine had learned in her years of growing up under her brother and distance father how to manipulate the situation to her favor. She had always been a clever girl, perhaps some thought too clever of wit to be left without proper devices.

    She didn't make it up the ladder completely before she stopped to enjoy the scene. The sunset was casting a beautiful hue of colors on Isabelle's face, and she couldn't quite turn her vision away. Yes, this was a most marvelous view indeed, though it was not exactly what the brunette was speaking of. She smiled softly as she approached, stopping alongside Isabelle to look out at hawks in the distance.
    "I will admit that I have spent many hours here, just my fiddle and the world seemingly at my fingertips. You have no idea how much more often I escaped here since my step mother's arrival," she admitted with a wry grin. There was something so open about Josephine even though many in the English circles considered her to be a woman to be cautious of though she was never scorned She was too clever, something that tended to make men nervous rather than interested. Not that Josephine was very book learned, no. She couldn't read well, honestly.

    "I'll let you know the next time that I steal away up here, take you with me so you aren't left with droll and dreary," she teased with a brightness to her grin. The redhead turned her attention back toward the setting sun, knowing well that her step mother was going to be expecting them for dinner soon. Oh joy.

    Isabella all too gladly tore her eyes from the scenery in front of her to to look at Josie, giggling quietly at her words. "She seems a bit...uptight. Don't tell Roderick I said that," the girl said with a small smile, gently nudging the other woman with her arm in jest. "You play?" It came at no surprise to Isa that Josephine was musically talented--young girls often took to voice lessons or music lessons growing up as a 'replacement' for proper education. The schools Isabella had went to were a bore to her, only teaching how to serve a man and run a house, so she gladly took her mother up on voice lessons.

    "I'd like that, very much." Josephine's words brought the thought back into her head that soon, she would belong to someone and she wouldn't be her own anymore. The thought weighed at her chest, and she let out a quiet--almost undetectable--sigh. It was there in that moment that Isabella let herself seep through the mask she had been wearing since she had disembarked the carriage. Her reluctance to marry this man, her distaste for becoming someone's property, her fear of losing herself all pulled at the features of her face for a moment before she turned away to recollect herself.

    "Tell me, Josie. What kind of man is your brother? I can hardly say I know myself." Isabella turned back to Josie, taking the moment that she wasn't looking back at her to admire the way the sunset made her features glow. She was just as captivating as the scene before them, if not more. The sun lit up her hair like a match, the red even more vibrant than before; her profile strong, yet still soft like a woman's. The brunette found herself admiring the red haired woman's lips--full and looking unbelievably soft. Looking back out at the sunset, she quietly admitted, "Sometimes I feel as if he courted my family, not me."

    That was placing it mildly in Josephine's estimation; if anything, Isabella was being far too kind of the woman that was far more manipulative than either woman gave her credit for being. Josephine had an inkling, but she wasn't quite aware of the full extent that her step mother would be willing to pursue her own machinations. "It was the only instrument I could learn to play since I don't have to sit idly and do so. I'll show you our music room tomorrow in case you want to avail yourself of what we have available. I will warn you now, don't ask Roderick to play the piano for you. He is ghastly."

    That sigh had not gone unnoticed by the redhead, but she decided not to pursue it. Rather, she paid attention as the young woman's facade finally began to slip. Ah, so this wasn't her idea of a wonderful match? The young woman listened to her inquiry and let out a soft sigh. That sounded like her brother, approaching the family and speaking to them since they had the authority rather than trying to sway the woman who would be marrying him. Romance was something that seemed to have been lost upon her brother, though that didn't make him a bad man. Just...a frustrating one for any one being courted by him.

    "That does sound rather like Roderick. Wouldn't surprise me if he gave you a biographical account of himself as if thinking that sort of gift would suffice to show his intent,"she scoffed. The redhead walked down toward the edge of the roof and sat down, not caring if her dress was dirtied in the process. "I love my brother, and he is a good man if rather rigid and completely devoid of handling delicate matters. He took my mother's passing when we were children quite to heart, and he has my late father's stoicism. The English men are taught to be strong and true, not given to fits of emotion like women. And the military didn't help any, I suppose. But Roderick has never tried to bridle me. He has given me freedom with the horses, on more than one occasion helped me to escape when our step mother was being very tenacious about a suitor. I think that he tries in his own way, but he just approaches things...logically rather than allowing himself to have a spontaneous bone in his body."

    Josie was trying to be honest while also not just completely sinking all hopes in the woman's heart that she could eventually be happy. Maybe one day she could. Isabelle deserved to be happy, so she hoped that would be the case.

    Despite the steady aching in her chest, Isabella couldn't help but laugh at Josephine's response to her question. "I'd be lying if I told you he didn't spend our first meeting going on and on about his military accomplishments. I don't believe he knows a single thing about me." She gathered her skirt and sat on the edge of the roof next to the other woman, listening to her speak on her brother. Everything that Josie said made perfect sense to Isa--which was a blessing in her nonsensical life.

    "I've noticed in my time doing suitors that none of them seem to have a spontaneous bone in their body. It must be a man's downfall," Isabella replied. "I have no doubts that he is an amazing man--he's your brother, that must count for something--I'm just afraid that the life that I want will be pushed aside for the life others want for me; and I'm not sure how well I'll be able to transition to that life." The brunette wasn't quite sure why she was sharing so much with Josephine, the sister of the man she was expressing hesitation about. Could it have been the mutual need for whimsical inclinations that both women had expressed? Could it have been that mutual need that caused Isa to trust Josie, or was it the brief flirtations shared between the two that fostered that trust? Even with all these worries rushing through her head, Isabella had already begun to share her fears--there was no turning back now.

    "Have you heard about the Ladies of Llangollen? Two Irishwomen, living an unconventional life together. When I was growing up, that life had crossed my mind more than once--I even asked my mother about it." Isa smiled sadly to herself, the memory of that interaction bittersweet in her head. "She told me that it was my duty to England to find a male suitor. She had said if I ever brought up such a sinful thing again, I'd go to bed that night and wake up the next morning in hell and be the Devil's footstool for eternity...Silly, isn't it?"

    Josephine listened to Isabella, genuinely listened to her which was likely a new experience for Isa. It was unfortunate, but precious few would give a woman's thoughts and fears the time of day. Even her family, it seemed. "I wish that I could ease those fears of yours that this is the right path for you. My step mother would be furious if she were to hear me say anything but encouragement for you. I cannot, in good conscience, do that, however. I've come to like you, Isabella, and I couldn't give false counsel to someone that I have come to find such a kindred spirit. From where I sit, I believe that we have no duties to our kingdoms. Nay, not even to our families. Your duty is to your heart, Isabella, first and foremost."

    She chuckled as she was questioned about those particular ladies, a hum of acknowledgement sounding from the young woman. "Oh, aye, I remember when their families were questionin' my own as to their whereabouts when they took off together. Quite the uproar it caused, yet they didn't turn back. Nothing that was said could persuade them to give up their own happiness in favor of what their families willed for them. I'd like to think I have a similarly rebellious spirit," she giggled.

    The young woman stretched her arms out, letting out a soft sigh.
    "I would be lying if I said that the life they lead is one I envy, and I would be more inclined to take a companion of another woman than I would to entertain a suitor. Another woman wouldn't try to pin down my spontaneous nature nor have expectations of me that would be impossible for me to meet. A friend for company is all I would truly need to be content in this world, I do believe. Besides. It would give my step mother absolute kittens."

    Isabella watched two birds flit across the open air before them, seemingly playing a game of tag as Josephine spoke. The young woman wondered what it was like to be a winged creature--the ability to soar over massive cities that looked like ant-sized colonies was one that Isa wished she had. Looking back to the Irishwoman, a smile tugged at the corners of her rose-tinted lips. At least Josie had acknowledged that little something going back and forth between them--much like the little larks flying through the sky like torpedoes.

    There was truth in what Lady Josephine had said to her--neither woman owed anyone but themselves anything. However, the thought of being completely cut off from her family was a terrifying one as her mother's health declined faster and faster. Whatever Isa was doing now was just to see that when her mother died, she would at least go feeling she had raised her daughter to meet her standards. This was why, when Roderick proposed marriage, Isabella had been quick to agree despite her obvious disinterest in finding a male suitor.

    "I figured the Irish woman with a certain distaste for the conventional would have known more about those Ladies than I did," the brunette said with another playful wink, "And I certainly think your step-mother must be quite the bore if she would have kittens over something so trivial and unrelated to her as that." There was a serious edge in Isabella's voice that was well hidden by her good-natured tone, one that could only be explained by her initial, rather stress-inducing, meeting with the Lady of the house. "Wouldn't it be simpler if we could just...walk away?" Isa asked as she laid back on the roof, looking up at the red, pink, and purple gradient slowly moving through the sky as the sun continued to set.

    "You have now met with my stepmother so you can judge for yourself just what type of woman she is. I will say that she and I have never seen eye to eye on anything. No matter what I do, it will never be enough to make her content. Even when my father was alive, she always had something negative to say to me. Which is fine, I don't need my step-mother's approval to feel accomplished in my life. All I need to feel content is doing what my heart yearns for. Though I will confess that lately its been rather empty feeling. A restlessness for something that I just can't put my finger on."

    She glanced over at her companion, watching her as she laid and gazed at the sky. There was a fair amount of turmoil going on in Isabella's head, she realized. Yet her expression seemed more relaxed, and she had noted the way her lips had curled into the prettiest of smiles. Josie wished she knew what she had said to cause that if only to make her do so again. Of course, the wink had been more effective than Isabella had likely though it would be. Warmth rushed through the redhead's body as she thought about that wink again, that playfulness in her gaze. She had to take a breath and swallow, her heart feeling like it fluttered in her chest. What on Earth was this feeling? She hadn't experienced before when talking with anyone else. It was frightening and exhilarating all at once.

    "Where would you go if you could just...walk away from this? If you could have your way and make arrangements to suit your whims, what would you want your life to look like, Isa?" she asked, using a familiar nickname without even asking if she could do so. She just went right along and did it.

    Lady Josephine's step-mother seemed to be the type of woman Isabella had feared she would be after their first meeting. Even though she wasn't a part of the family, she had felt the scrutiny from the older woman's eyes from the second she walked in, almost as if she were thinking This is who Roderick chose to marry? Nevertheless, Isa had tried to ignore it for civility's sake. It was only now, as Josie spoke about the woman did the encounter bother her. If she treated the red-haired woman badly, what was stopping her from doing the same to Isa?

    It was Josie's voice that pulled Isabella out of her thoughts, prompting the brunette to look over at the other woman. Something about the way Isa rolled off of the Lady's tongue sent her heart fluttering within the confines of her ribcage. Isabella looked away and thought for a moment, laughed to herself, then looked back at the Irishwoman with a smile. "I guess I hadn't thought that far ahead." She propped herself up on one elbow and angled her body towards her future sister-in-law, brow still a bit furrowed as she thought for an answer to the question.

    "If I could have my way," she repeated, "and fulfill all my whims...I'd want to see the world. I'd want to fall in love, actual love. Maybe I'd write a book?" Isabella's mind was racing with all of the things she wanted to do, but was unable to get them all out--or even sort through them. "I'd want to live an exciting life, that's all I'm sure of." There was a brief silence as the two held each other's eyes, then Isa spoke again.

    "What about you, Josie?"

    Those sounded like such wonderful goals, honestly, though Josephine couldn't imagine writing a book since she herself couldn't write or read well. Not that she would hopefully ever have to admit that to anyone else. She preferred for that kind of information to remain strictly secret because it caused her so much embarrassment. She was a noble lady afforded the best tutors there could be..and she had such a hard time being able to focus on the letters that she simply couldn't read or write the letters correctly. Neither in English nor Gaelic could she manage this feat, which meant that it had to be something wrong with her.

    Josie giggled a little. "I fear that being married to Roderick is as opposite of an exciting life as you can get! I think the most exciting thing he does is make wages with me on races we participate in, wagers that he loses of course yet still insists on accepting."

    She turned her thoughts toward what she would do if she could do anything, also shifting to look at the other woman. "I think I'd like to go somewhere like America or Australia, places I've never been and who don't know me so I can live my life completely as I please without anyone the wiser. I could be anyone I wanted to be in those places, take any companion without anyone being able to tell me no. I want happiness and excitement, and yes, maybe even love."

    Isabella couldn't help but crack a smile at the Irishwoman's giggling--the sound causing her own mood to brighten, even if what the other woman was saying confirmed her fears about the young Roderick. "Maybe he likes to let you win," She giggled back, rolling her eyes jokingly. The notion that her betrothed was as lively as a dead fish was no surprise to the brunette--but the more time she spent with Lady Josephine, the more Isa didn't mind. She was beginning to think as long as Josie was around, there would be a little excitement.

    Something in the way the young woman spoke captivated Isabella, and she listened intently. The things she spoke about made Isabella yearn more and more for the freedom to live that life; it even made her slightly jealous that Josephine still had that chance. I could always change my mind about the engagement, the brunette thought to herself; however, the thought of not hearing Josie's laugh or seeing the mischievous gleam in her eye before doing her step-mother would disapprove of made her think twice. They had only been introduced a few hours prior, why did she feel so fondly about the other woman already?

    "I think that's an amazing plan. And I'll call it a plan, since I know if anyone could make it happen, you could," the Englishwoman said with a smile. "What's your plan then, Josie?" The sun was almost completely set at that point, the last blood red light quickly fading from the sky as the two woman spoke.

    The red haired young woman laughed heartily at the idea of Roderick letting her win, her hand moving to her stomach as she tried to find the ability to get air back in her lungs. "Oh! That t'would the day! I'd hang up my riding boots and never ride again if that were to happen! Saints alive, brought a tear to me eye. You've quite the wit, Isa; it is a shame it is going to be wasted on Roderick. You deserve to have someone who appreciates it and your good humor."

    It was definitely a shame that Isabella was going to be stuck wed to her brother when the woman deserved to have that exciting life that she dreamed of. It wasn't fair that just because she was a woman she was expected to forego all inclinations of her own. Well, Josephine wasn't going to have that for herself...and she wished desperately in that moment, to take Isabella along with her when she made her great escape.

    "There is a bit of an uprisin' in southern Ireland, a call for us to have rule over our own people. I plan to go there. My uncle..he has offered me a place to stay to help him while he tries to get the other lords of the houses to side with him. Roderick won't do it, of course. Says we should stay true to England and not try to fight with a power as large as Victoria. I plan to snea--"

    "Lady Josephine who is not where I think she is! It's time for dinner!"

    "We'd better go then, don't want to upset the lady of the house any more than my presence already does," she laughed. The woman went down the ladder first then reached her hand up to help Isabella, swallowing against a sudden tingling running down her arm when her fingers brushing along Isabella's sides to guide her down. A hot flush suddenly burst across her cheeks.

    That laugh.

    The sound echoed in the open air, and an almost cartoonish flock of birds took off in response. The sight--and contagious sound--sent Isa into her own fit of giggles, shaking her head with a smile as she tried to keep what was left of her composure. The tips of Isabella's ears turned a light shade of pink at Josie's compliment, and she sat back up to hide her flustering. How does she keep doing that? Isa thought to herself. It was as if every word Lady Josephine spoke tugged harder and harder at the young Englishwoman's interest; she knew it was only a matter of time before she would get herself in trouble.

    And it was trouble that seemed to appear right before her eyes: a rebellion. The prospect terrified and excited Isabella, who had never uprisen against anything but so desperately wanted to.

    The harsh cry of Lady Josephine's step-mother sliced through their serenity like a tempered steel blade, making the brunette woman jolt upright. A nervous laugh escaped Isa's lips and she made her way behind Josie to the ladder. As usual, Isabella was lost in thought as she moved, only snapping out of it when the sensation of the other woman's fingers ever so gently on her sides seemingly set her body aflame. When her shoe hit solid ground, Isa turned around and looked at Josie, then away, and then back again before saying, "I think that's a rather lovely plan, Josie. Promise you won't leave without at least saying goodbye?" Take me with you, Isa wanted to say, but she couldn't bring herself to admit it. The air was thick around them, almost radiating with the energy the two woman commandeered.

    Josephine had always been told her ideas were too outrageous, far too scandalous. She needed to ground herself more and live in reality, that was what her brother and step-mother often told her when she would attempt to convey her desires. It was unusual for her to hear someone actually supportive of her impulsive plans, and it once more made her believe that Isabella was wasting her life by marrying Roderick. This woman was so full of life, so bright and wonderful..a true gift to humanity, and it would be squandered on a man who was so concerned with propriety and order that he couldn't fathom losing control of himself enough to have convictions and emotions.

    In that moment, she was tempted to ask the other woman to run with her. For them to go together down to Galway. But it was too soon to make such a bold request of someone who was supposed to be marrying her brother. The other woman was supportive and vibrant, but she doubted that she would be interested in giving up the luxuries of being a lady of court in order to spirit away with her to the heart of a resistance.

    "Of course, I wouldn't dream of doing otherwise, Isabella. When I leave, I will come see you right before I head out. Save the best for last," she playfully winked, trying to ignore how her stomach turned at the idea of leaving the other woman behind. She could put off making her grand escape, at least for a little while.

    Isabella's lips parted in a bright smile, gently nudging the other woman with her elbow as she walked past. "Come along then, can't be giving the Lady any more grief than normal, right?" Isa punctuated her words with a playful wink right back at Josephine, starting to make her way back to the main house. "She might start to think you'll corrupt me to your blasphemous ways if we're gone much longer." A quiet laugh escaped her mouth, turning back to wave Josephine along.

    Whenever the two women met each other eyes, Isa felt her heart rate start to quicken. The look in Josie's eye--a wild sort of look, like she was untamable--made the brunette woman wonder what thoughts were running through the Irishwoman's head. It excited her, and Isabella knew that whatever kinship she fostered with Josie would lead somewhere thrilling.

    The pair made their way along the path until they approached the entrance back into the home, where Isabella turned to Josie. "Do you have any advice on how to stay out of your step-mother's ire?" She said quietly, realizing as they entered that she had no idea how to handle her future mother-in-law. She doubted Josie would be much help, but Isa figured the other woman had to have learned some tricks in her time.
