She was now going to a boarding school in London because her parents were moving to New York. However, she was very lucky that her parents had a very good friend, Mrs Allen, she was also going to London, and they agreed that Mrs Allen, Mr Allen and Catherine would go together a month beforehand so that she could get used to living in the big city. Catherine was eager for her new adventure in a huge city she had never been to before. She marvelled of all the wonders that could happen in a big dangerous city reminding her to pack all her favourite books.

'There is no trouble we were just going go for lunch ourselves anyway.' Eleanor smiled. 'But Mr Thorpe said that you were going to go to Windsor.' Said Catherine confused. 'Why would he say that? We never said anything like that' Said Eleanor now confused as well. 'So he lied to me.' Catherine scowled 'No need to worry we go for lunch now.' Eleanor replied and then looked at Henry.

'Uh...y- yes that's fine with me, oh and Cathy, please.' she stuttered blushing. 'Well there is nothing stopping me, let's go.'
