As the queen and host continued their talk, the two girls went on to go put their flowers and the queens original bouquet in a proper vase...
"That's an idea!.." Marina beamed when Bekka suggested they find a few more vases to put the flowers in.
There was already an empty vase on the main entrance hall to the chateau. Most likely it had been prepared for them to do just that, place the flowers given to Queen Faith Organa in it, as the vase seemed to already have been partially filled.
Only that the two girls had two stems of their own. So Marina went about looking for two vases, as her queen and Lady Russo talked a bit more.
Lord and behold, all the vases in the chateau were already decorated with flowers. There was no spare vase to be had, as far as empty ones. marina came back over to Bekka still brandishing her two stems and empty handed as far as vases went.
"They all have wonderful arrangements in them...throughout the lower floor." She sadly announced.
"I guess maybe we can get two glasses from the kitchen and ...and put ours in them." Marina then suggested. Bekka agreed and with both taking a peak back over to their queen and host, they trotted off into the kitchen to get some glasses for their flowers.
"Oh wait...no, this leads to the atrium..." They no doubt went the wrong way.
But in fact it was quite a view out of the rear open door atrium. It opened up to the rear court yard...and beautiful gardens.
"Wow...now that's what I call a back yard..." Marina commented.
And she loved gardens...all gardens really, for her own family estate was located on top of Mt Cetril...the Norther mountain regions of Alderaan.
Sure the estate had a garden with trees, shrubbery and flower beds. But they were indoors in a sort of greenhouse environment and not in the open air, for her home was after all on the mountain.
"Huh?..." She asked, having been lost in the vista.
Bekka repeated her question, asking if she ever seen many gardens outside of the palace.
"Oh yes, I've been to many private gardens like this..." she replied.
"My bestie has one which I once got lost in..." She chuckled, remembering the antics her and Mariya Fleischer had whenever she visited her winery.
"Oh look...a gazebo...and..and a table over there with chairs...and there too..." She pointed to some outdoor patio furnishings, that were uniquely set so as not to stick out, but blend in, be part of the gardens.
"Maybe we can eat...or have breakfast out here...no?" Marina asked Bekka.
Naturally, Bekka replied if the queen would, then she couldn't see why not.
She personally didn't mind eating outside, but maybe it wasn't proper.
"Hmm, I don't know. I mean, why else would they have tables? I mean, if they had just benches and chairs thenI could see that eating outside wasn't the plan...but the tables, Bekka." She pointed to them again.
"They're made to be eaten on..."
Again, Bekka replied if the queen was to decide for them to eat outside, then she would too. But she wasn't just going to ask their host to make special arrangements for them to eat outside.
But how would we know if Queen Faith Organa wants to or not, if we don't ask her?...heh?" Marina made a point.
One which Bekka didn't wish to exercise.
"Well why not?..I'll ask her." Marina replied.
Bekka was against asking their queen if they could eat outdoors like marina suggested..
"What's the big deal, Bekka? Our queen eats like everyone else.
I mean...well, she has put on a few kilos, right?...she must enjoy eating... So why not outside in the gardens?" So Marina reasoned, not being aware of her queen's paternal condition...nor of her voice carrying to her majesty's ears.
