Richard and Rose get close and Rose is on cloud nine – but will it all end in tears?
I chose Only Love Can Hurt Like This by Paloma Faith as the title for this dramatic scene.

The River Nene, flowing far away
On past the castle of Fotheringhay
Passing the good news away to the sea
Richard Plantagenet, newborn is he
Youngest son to the Duke and Duchess
With joy we greet you and wish you success
Three rivers he knew
Three rivers passed through
The life of our King
Richard’s news to bring
The River Ure, speeding on by
The Castle of Middleham, on the hill, high
Sending the news of a chivalrous knight
A good, noble Lord, upholding what’s right
Richard of Gloucester, Lord of the North
With pride we salute you, as you sally forth
The River Soar, through Leicester city
Meandering on so clear and pretty
Taking the bad news – our King is slain
England in turmoil, unrest again
King Richard III, your life it cost
With sadness we weep for the great king we lost

Still at Center Parcs, Rose and Richard visit the local church and discuss prayers. They go riding in the country together and play ten pin bowling, before a chess game and a drink of Calvados. The alcohol causes Rose to lose her inhibitions and reveal her feelings to Richard…
I thought the scene title of My Prayer was appropriate as they discussed religion and Rose’s thoughts actually mirror the lyrics to this one. Frankie Valli’s voice is amazing and the harmonies beautiful – I love this doo-wop style.

Rose takes Richard on a break to Center Parcs where, among other things, they take part in some archery. Richard has his own bow and impresses Rose with his prowess, but there are other arrows at work too…the kind that emanate from Cupid’s bow! So the amusing song, Little Arrows by Leapy Lee seemed to be particularly apt.

I chose Kelly Clarkson’s ‘What Doesn’t Kill you (Stronger)’ to illustrate this scene.

Richard and Rose go to the re-enactment of the Battle of Bosworth so that Richard can research it and find out what went wrong and how to rectify it. When they arrive they get a shocking surprise! Richard has to take one of the leading roles. To find out which role it was and how it panned out please download, Richard Liveth Yet for Kindle.
I chose the song Glorious by the Pierces, because Richard certainly looked glorious in his armour and riding his horse, Royal Rebel.

Richard’s custom made armour arrives and he puts it on to show Rose. The song title had to be The Armed Man by Karl Jenkins (click to see his official website)
Perhaps Richard’s armour would be like this – Dom Smee models!
