So very late for the "One" challenge..

But it just came to me.

For The Sake of Us Both

Théodred runs and shouts with the cook's son in the courtyard. Not for the first time, I wonder if he feels the lack of a sibling.

Perhaps I should re-marry. Not only should my son have a brother or sister, but 'twould be better if I had another heir. I would like more children whom I could teach to love this country as I do. And I do miss the companionship of a wife.

I do not think Elfhild would want Théodred to grow up motherless, nor me to be alone all my days. Perhaps I shall think on it.
