The pink carriage with the sestola crest stopped in the courtyard in front of the imperial palace.
The servants in pink livery helped the Viscountess to come down.
Sheky looked at the building, she climbed the stairs and she said to a page:
I am here to meet the Imperial Chancellor Anthonis Philippe Nicolas de Ligne Borgia

Aliénor, warned by her superior, arrived shortly after. In the meantime, she had asked a servant to bring some refreshments for the candidate. She directly headed toward to the Great Hall to greet the Viscountess.

Please be welcomed in the Palace! My name is Aliénor Catherine de Cetzes de Chenot, Imperial Vice-Chancellor. I am pleased to make your acquaintance. I hope you had a pleasant journey? Please, let's discuss more quietly into to a meeting room.


Leading her in one of the a small and comfortable meeting room close to the Great Hall, the young Vice-Chancellor showed her chairs near the fireplace and a servant approched to offer refreshment to the guest. With a smile, she started the interview.

The Imperial Chancellor has shared your letter with me and it is very interesting. I am pleased that you are able to make the travel very fast after his answer. We have received several candidacies which is very good for imperial services as well. May I inquire what motivated you to submit your application? I would also like to know more about your experience as a diplomat.

Sheky bowed to the Imperial Chancellor
Thank you, Excellency

In a short time a beautiful Lady arrives, the Imperial Vice Chancellor who welcomes her with a smile
Sheky smiles at her and follows her to a delightful parlor
The heat of the fireplace is relaxing and a sweet liqueur makes it start again from the long journey

The journey was long but pleasant
I want to be an ambassador for the empire for a long time..
but you know how it is
the husband, the children ... it's not easy for a woman .. now the children are all old enough and I'm freer.
I believe you know the situation of Modena:
I am a fervent Aristotelian believer and I have always worked in the name of the Empire
Today's the Duchy of Modena I do not like anymore because it does not have my ideals
This is the reason for the decision to look around me
I was a Great Chamberlain of Modena for two times (and the old Great Chamberlain of Modena for two times):
The first time for about 8 months, I was young and the world of diplomacy fascinated me: different habits and customs, many new people to know, I love this job!!!
Last year I was again a great chamberlain for 4 months, the environment has changed, the climate is less relaxed, but the role is always beautiful.
I am ambassador of the duchy of Modena accredited to the reign of the two Sicilies since 1459:
at the beginning it was not easy, but slowly I managed to conquer them..
now diplomatic relations are excellent.
What do I love about this role?
the mundane part: coronations, parties, dances!

She beamed at her
The part of the diplomatic treaties intrigues me.
Diplomacy is all fascinating world and I can talk about it all night!

she said, sipping the sweet liqueur

Aliénor listened carefully

Yes I am a spouse and mother myself, I understand. My children are still very young and they are the sun in my life. I am a fervent Aristotelician as well and I understand that you might feel torn in Modena at the moment with all the tensions. I am glad to live in the duchy of Milano and not in Modena in those troubled times. I am glad that you choose to candidate yourself in the Imperial Chancellery.

Before we go through your language proficiency and other questions, I would like to show you the Statute of the Imperial Chancellery especially the duties of an Ambassador so you know what is expected as well as the requirements because you need to confirm that you meet them. We will also ask you to bring a proof of baptism. Please read and let me know if you have any questions.


Hands her a parchment to read.

Sheky smiled at her, but her eyes grew sad thinking of her Land.
She left the sad thoughts and read the parchment.
She paused on the last part

I have the honor of being a Territorial Herald and a Genealogist Herald
I want to know if these roles can cause problems
The role of Territorial Herald does not allow me to move from my Land

On the rest I'm used to following the rules and I have a strict discipline at work.
I always try to make the working environment with a good atmosphere and this does not prevent a profitable job

This is my baptism certificate

She took out an old parchment from her pink bag

Once the formalities of the role and condition of an Imperial Ambassador done, Aliénor took the certificate of baptism, looked at it, kindly noded and continued.

I am glad that you are at ease with the parchment I have shown you. I don't see any duties that could interfere with your current role. Discipline and wanting to create a good working environnement are good qualities for team work. According to you, what would be the main difference between the role of a provincial ambassador and an imperial ambassador? Are you at ease when your foreign counterpart is slow or non-responding? Also, in your letter, you said you speak also French in addition of English. How would you qualify your proficiency in the first? Pouvez-vous me dire comment vous avez appris cette langue ?

Aliénor knew it was a lot of questions at once and listened carefully.

Sheky mentally repeated the questions that had been asked to answer all of them exhaustively:

"What would be the main difference between the role of a provincial ambassador and an imperial ambassador?"
Being a local ambassador is certainly easier because the treaties and the agreements are then subordinated to being a part of the empire
an imperial ambassador can not err because he makes the parts of the empire
my opinion, one of the main features is to be an excellent listener and observer as well as being able to read between the lines
therefore he will always have to support himself with the head of the hierarchy and study together "action plan":
every diplomatic relationship starts from a parchment and the more carefully transcribed it is the relations between these lands
when an ambassador is entrusted with a land it is important for him to study the laws, the customs, the treaties and the agreements because he must understand this Land.

"Are you at ease when your foreign counterpart is slow or non-responding?"
I'm never comfortable if the other foreign party is slow or non-responding.
But experience has taught me that first of all it is important to have a good relationship with your foreign correspondent, if I put myself as a friend always answer me.
In extreme cases of disappearance of the correspondent I had to point out the lack to the superior (always with diplomacy and kindness)


Sheky smiled blushing
"you said you speak also French in addition of English. How would you qualify your proficiency in the first? Pouvez-vous me dire comment vous avez appris cette langue ?"
I've a bad English and a bad French and I am aware of it, surely my level is not a native speaker
my English is at the level of educator and spoken. My hobby is business with merchants and often we speak English.
Mais dans l'art de la diplomatie au-delà des mots, il vaut également la peine de savoir comment accueillir et divertir vos invités et une petite erreur de langage n'a jamais été remarquée
Nous, les jumeaux Carafa della Spina, avions une nounou française, la vieille Charlotte, aujourd'hui elle est encore dans le palais de mes oncles. De plus, un éducateur strict nous a formés pour chaque discipline.

Aliénor nodded, she liked that the candidate was reactive and thorough in her answers.

The main item you will notice is that we speak at the Kingdom level and not provinces unless the diplomacy is non existing at that level. Our actions and decisions have big impacts and we need to see the interractions with other realms before we act. Regarding the language please do not worry, it is mostly to help us identify an embassy for our candidates.

Before I make my report to the Chancellor, may I inquire if there are embassies that you would not like to be assigned to or the opposite, that you would have a special interest in? You must know that most are embassies have already Ambassadors and it is possible that, if we take you, you may not have your wish agreed upon but it will help us. As well, do you have any questions you would like to ask me?

Prego

Aliénor smiled. She had listened carefully to everything.

I like your answers. If you don't mind waiting for a few minutes, I need to speak with the Imperial Chancellor to summarize him the conversation.

The young vice-chancellor stepped out in order to discuss the candidacy with her superior. After a little while, she came back with a smile.

I have a good news for you. The Imperial Chancellor has agreed with me that you would be a good candidate for the Imperial Chancellery. So we are pleased to welcome you among us! However, would you mind waiting a little longer here, in this salon, before I inform you of your assignment? I just wanted to give you the good news before we make a decision on the rest!

After speaking with the Imperial Chancellor, Aliénor came back to the room.

I apologize for leaving you so long here. It was a difficult assignation that required a little of shuffling around internally. So, considering your actual experience, we would like to offer you the embassy of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies. I hope you will be pleased with continuing your relationship with them. The announcement shall be made within 24 hours and the Imperial Chancellor will take care of your keys.

Anthonis now had time to meet the new Ambassador as well so he stepped into the room and bowed.

Congratulations your Excellency, please here you will find the keys to your new office. Vice-Chancellor Aliénor will help you get settled. Welcome.
