Please add a period after the first sentence! I wished you had a stronger intro but the rest was very solid and well-written. More emotions, perhaps, but definitely well done. :)

Here are somethings I noticed,

"The soft pre-dawn..." You really don't need the "The" there.

"that needed to be (signed)..."

It is nice story and Keep Writing.

Great job. I really like that you get a sense of Lady Katherine's kindness and self-control. The only thing I noticed is that crows do not cock-a-doodle-do, roosters do. Crows caw. Also, you don't need to capitalize "man". Other than that, great job. Makes me think I need to have some sort of morning calming ritual, seems like a good way to start a day. Though I doubt mine will have anything to do with playing a flute down the streets of my village, lol. Nicely done!
