Charles, having arrived in Bilbao after a stormy sea journey from England, begins a breakneck ride south.

Meanwhile, Isabella paces and down her chambers in distress over current situations.

A perk of owning more real estate than anyone else in Europe is getting the fastest horses. Charles arrives in near record time and scares the first person he meets half to death by demanding to know if he is too late. On being told that no, the baby is not yet born, he has word of his arrival sent to his wife and goes to wash off the dirt of the road and change before calling upon her.

*to his manservant*
Tell her I'm here, and they are to send for me if anything begins to go wrong. I shall pray, now.
*to the chapel*

In a panic, Isabella tries to make herself look as beautiful as possible and it seems the rush is the perfect trigger. Isabella's labour begins.

In the chapel, on his knees before his God, wishing protocol allowed him to be at his wife's side.

*taking some time away from prayer to pace with some of his gentlemen*
I wish I could help her, do something for her, in this her time of need! Even I, the Emperor of Christendom, though, can but stand aside as she labors to bring forth our child! You! *points to one* Go, talk to her ladies and make sure she needs nothing.

The mood begins to turn dark as a scarlet liquid begins to ooze out of Isabella's body, her stillborn child clutched in her arms. Isabella screams and wails like a commoner.

My baby, my baby boy!

This will NOT be happening again. You *points to one of his gentleman* I hear you have an excellent doctor- a Muslim? Oh yes, I know about that. Fetch him to me, and make sure he washes his hands. You *to another* get a priest. I will go to her now.

Isabella clings tightly onto the corpse of her child - refusing to let go, in a rage she begins to shout for her ladies to leave her prescence.

Be gone, get out I say GET OUT!

Make sure that doctor's dressed like a Christian, man.
*runs up the stairs, entering his wife's quarter's as the ladies leave*
Stay in the anteroom, ladies. Which of you has the most experience with this sort of thing? You? Good. Please wait for my summons.
*gently opens the door and closes it quietly behind him.*
Darling, the baby...please, may I hold it?

*Isabella's face is covered in her offspring's blood, she slowly looks up to face her husband, paints on a face of composure and slowly reliquinshes the child*

A boy.

*She says, looking away*

Ah my poor darling, the boy is with God, now. I wish to wash him and hold him a moment.
*gently takes the little body, still warm, from his wife as his eyes tear up. Tenderly cradles the bloody body in his arms disregarding his fine clothes, and hums a quiet song, almost unconsciously, as he carries the baby across the room to the wash basin. As he dabs the boy's tiny head with a damp cloth, the child whimpers then begins to wail.*

My love look what a wonder you have made! I shall bring him to you post haste. *finishes cleaning the baby, then wraps him up in fine linen.*
*there is a knock on the door and the priests and doctor enter, bowing to the emperor*
Doctor, Father Jeromin, tend to my wife. Father Manuel, to my son.

*taking the baby back from the priest and carrying him to Isabella, laying the child gently in his mother's arms, then sitting by her on the bed.*
I do not know what to say but thank you, and I love you.
*brushes her hair back and wipes her face clean with his sleeve.*

Senor thank you for calling upon my lady wife. I shall be with you momentarily.

In fact- the rest of you lot- leave.

As for a name I wouldst heartily like to name the child Fernando, after my grand father on my father's side. What do you think?
