“She`s a complex mixture of spice and darkness. Not many can handle her, she’s and acquired taste.” - K.N.B
A little bit late but here’s this week’s spread! I had an interview for an apprenticeship on Monday and I really just wanted to thank you for the sweet messages and encouraging words 💕 They really helped a lot and i think the interview went quite alright :)
“I wish you nothing but happiness in this marriage, shawn I’ve known you since you were a boy and I could tell even then that you were born to be king, I know you don’t want to marry princess y/n but this will be good.”
Shawn smiled at the pastor, not fully listening to what he was saying. His mind was preoccupied with you.
In a few minutes you would walk through those doors and you’d be his. Forever. The realization made Shawn’s heart race, he tried to hide his anxiousness but his father could see it from a mile away.
“Try to look happy would you? It’s your fucking wedding day.”
Shawn’s father laughed loudly, causing some of the guards to chuckle too.
Lost in thought Shawn didn’t hear the loud slam of the doors and the cheers, only looking up when Theo kicked him lightly, motioning to you.
Straightening himself out, he planted a fake, rather convincing smile onto his face.
He took your hand in his, laying a kiss upon it, causing you to giggle at the sensation.
“You look beautiful.” Shawn was telling the truth, you looked like a goddess. The sun would be jealous of your beauty, the way it radiated.
The long white dress that clung to your body perfectly, accompanied by a lacy veil.
A blush rose to your cheeks at the compliment.
Before you could respond the pastor interrupted you, making you forget your surroundings.
“We are gathered here, to bear witness to the marriage of prince Shawn, and princess y/n. We welcome them into the bond that is eternal love and into our hearts as the next king and queen.”
It was over before it started. The night was magical, you danced until your feet hurt and laughed more than you ever had in your entire life.
You were dancing with your father when the king interrupted, causing everybody to fall silent.
The king raised his glass.
“Today has been a great day. my son has inherited the throne and married a beautiful princess. I may be old, but I do live up to tradition.” The comment made a few older men laugh.
“We bid farewell to the past, because ladies and gentlemen they are the future. I say it’s time for the consummation.” Cheers made their way across the crowded hall.
Your heart stopped, Shawn’s comment coming back to you.
“I will do my duty, my sons will sit upon the throne and their sons after them, y/n is to be the mother of my children nothing else. I refuse to let myself grow soft towards her.”
You hardly had time to register your thoughts before you were being whisked away, your clothes were being pulled off by maids and you were placed in a white nightdress.
Shawn lay on top of you, his raggedy breath fanning the side of your face, feeling uncomfortable with 10 people in the room you place your head in his neck, cowering away. Though you were both Hidden behind a curtain of silk you knew they were listening, waiting to approve of the marriage.
“Y/n, I can tell you don’t want to do this, and I can understand why as well but if we do not consummate the marriage the church won’t see us as man and wife.” Shawn tried his best to whisper in the awkward position he was in.
It wasn’t that you didn’t want to be with Shawn it’s just you couldn’t enjoy yourself or even be comfortable when there were other people there, including your parents.
You closed your eyes, taking a deep breath before looking up at him.
“I’m ready.” Shawn nodded, giving you a quick kiss before entering you, earning a surprised yelp.
You clasped onto his back, leaving crescent moon shapes.
The morning after you awake before Shawn, leaning down to place a kiss to his cheek, cussing him to stir Slightly.
“Good morning My queen.” Your handmaiden bowed.
“Please, y/n is fine. I’m only married to a king, that doesn’t make me a queen.” She nodded at you before scurrying to get your bath drawn.
Sighing, you place yourself against the desk, taking in your appearance. Your hair was wild, red lips and doe eyes. You didn’t look like your usual self, you looked healthier, happier.
The familiar sound of footsteps on the hardwood floors catches your attention, you look up and meet Shawn’s tired face. His features match yours.
“Goodmorning y/n. Did you sleep well?”
“I did my king, you?” Shawn only gave a lopsided smile, motioning for you to stand up.
When you obeyed he lay his hand on your flat stomach, frowning.
“Do you feel any different? ill maybe?” You chucked, bringing your hand up to brush the stray hair from his eyes.
“Shawn, it takes a few weeks for pregnancy symptoms to show. If I were with child we’d know in a fortnight.”
“Do you want to have children with me?”
You furrowed your brow, placing your hand on your hip.
“darling, where is all of this coming from-“
“Do you?” He spoke through gritted teeth.
“Of course I Do Shawn, you’re my husband why wouldn’t I?”
Shawn gave a shrug of his shoulders, placing his hands around your waist and bringing you closer into his arms.
“Just know, if you’re lying to me. I’ll find out.” Shawn whispered in your ear, causing goose bumps to arrise on your skin.
“You’d never lie to me would you, baby?” Shawn’s grip on your waist got tighter, you could feel his nails digging into your exposed skin, breaking it.
“Good.” Before shawn turned to leave the room he stopped to look at you.
“Oh and y/n?”
“Yeah?” Your voice came out as shaky.
“Don’t think I don’t know what you’re doing. I know you don’t love me, but as long as you play the role of doting wife we’ll get along just fine.”
I’m back, yes. I’ve been pretty busy lately, but today has been a ‘day at home’. I was pretty productive: laundry, groceries, cleaning, sports sesh, self-care, and I finished Frankenstein’s second volume! Breakfast above was porridge with a spoon of peanut butter, a banana, and some sesame seeds (+ mandatory coffee). I only have one class left this week, and I’m planning to be rather productive in the next few days (essays needing to be done!).
You and Matt have been a couple for almost a year now. About
a week ago, you moved in with Matt and everything was going perfect. But,
things were starting to get lonely. Matt was gone most of the time, leaving you
by yourself at home.
Your laptop was in your lap, waiting for Matt to skype call you. You scrolled through
Instagram, liking everyone’s posts. You stopped at a picture of an adorable chocolate
lab puppy who needed a home. You have always wanted a dog- you figured now
would be perfect. You wouldn’t be alone half the time when Matt’s away. You
looked up, seeing Matt was calling. You hit the green accept button and a few
seconds later, Matt’s face appeared on the screen.
“Hey, babe.” He spoke, a smile spreading across your face. “I miss you.” You
spoke, looking at him.
