Anne Boleyn-the second wife of King Henry VIII has been locked in the "Bloody Tower", which is one of the towers in the Tower of London complex. As she awaits her beheading, she reflects back on her life, and plans her final moments, down to her last words to her husband who has ordered her death.

A love everlasting I thought I had. a daughter I bore, but I couldn't bear a son. My husband became abusive and tyrannical. I am locked up in a tower. Freedom I shall not acquire. Long ago things seemed so bright. I was raised in the courts of France. I was married young, to the \"wonderful\" King Henry. Eighth was he to bear the name. His second wife I was to be. I am Anne Boleyn, mother of Elizabeth I. Finally the king, my dear Henry. He became dissatisfied with me. To death he sentenced me. Hence my adjourn in London's Bloody Tower. I await my beheading. I'll be lead down to the beheading stone. Where I'll be decapitated by axe, if I'm lucky a sharpened sword. I know just what my final words will be. \"Henry I love you, even if you don't love me.\" Then I'll have to bend down, and my fate I will attend. Tears flowing in my eyes before the axe comes down. Then I will die.
