((I know it has been so long since his birthday..but..ahg!!))
Kimmie hummed the birthday song as she walked slowly without sound to Prince Wilfred’s room. She laughed softly when she tried to imagine how he will react when she appeared in front of his door without any notice.
”Whoa!!” She exclaimed in surprise when she was suddenly grabbed in the arms from behind. ”How many times must I remind you not to roam the manor at such hour, Miss Kimmie?” She gasped before turning to her Worst-Nightmare-So-Far.
”May I know what you’re doing here?” he asked her, still grabbing her arm. ”I-I’m on my way to enjoy the breeze outside?” she stuttered the words out. ”Is that so? Then, I’ll have to say that you have a bad sense of direction as usual. That’s not the way out. Anyway, it’s too late to have walk. Let’s get you back to your room.”
Annoyed, she snapped back at him, ”I can get back myself, you know.”
”It’s you we’re talking about. You will wander off and who knows, I’ll end up finding you in Prince Wilfred’s room again. You should let His Highness have his rest. He just finished his work and he’s going to have a busy day tomorrow.”
She scowled and muttered, ”It’s true, but I’ve seen his schedule for tomorrow. It’s so packed! There’s the parade in the morning and then, the party and tea-party. In the evening, there’s the masquerade ball in the evening. Seriously, I think he doesn’t even have the time to breathe!! Are you trying to kill your Crown Prince on his birthday!!!”((I can imagine her wanting to flip a table here! XD))
When Kimmie entered her room, she sighed and glanced at the present on her dressing table. She stared at the music box with snowdrop design and smiled as she remembered the day when she received it from Prince Wilfred as a gift for White Day. She opened the music box and the song ‘Salut d’Amour’ started playing.
”This really brings back memories,” she sighed and placed her chin on her palm as she remembered the moment she met Prince Wilfred. As she touched the miniature violin replica that was turning in the music box as the song played, there was a knock on her door. She glanced at the clock and realized that it was already 12.
”I wonder who is it..” she muttered and went to open the door. As she opened the door, she said, ”Claude, if you think that I’m roaming the castle again, think aga- Oh!” Her eyes widened in surprise when she saw the person she wanted to meet most standing in front of her. She hugged Prince Wilfred and exclaimed, ”I miss you so, so, so much, Your Highness!”
(Thanks for your patience, Princess! -Mun bows repeatedly-)
Hearing the commotion between Kimmie and Claude, Wilfred smiles a bit hearing her excuses. He knows full well that she would try to sneak to see him again. They had been keeping up this charade for a while now, but as Claude began to pick up on it, it became harder and harder to see one another.
Thinking back to White Day, the melody of the music box began to play in his ear. As he got up to head to his bedroom, he faintly heard it down the hall.
"It’s far too late, could she still be up?" Wilfred wondered as he followed the haunting tune. Finally, he stopped at a door; her door. Smiling softly to himself, he knocked on the door but not expecting her to answer.
"Claude, if you think that I’m roaming the castle again, think aga- Oh!" he watched as she swayed her hip in an attitude as if she were adressing his butler. Holding back a laugh, Wilfred’s eyes looked kindly upon her. As a pink hue dusted her cheeks, Kimmie hugged him as she confessed her emotions to him.
Wilfred felt his heart pound a bit at her words as he is embraced by the young girl. He wrapped his arms around her and held her close.
"I thought for sure you’d drifted to sleep," he smiled letting himself into her room so they could not disturb the rest of the castle. "Is everything alright?" he suddenly wondered, hoping that Claude hadn’t upset her too much.
