Okay so I am changing it up a lot but I hope you like it anyway.
I could hear the piano from my room. Mother only plays piano when Father is pleased about something, though it wasn’t always like that. When I was a little girl the castle was always filled with music. The piano could be heard in every corner of the castle and my sisters and I along with my twin brother Francis would dance to the music our mother played and Father would sit in a chair and laugh as he watched us dance and be merry. We used to be such a happy family until the accident. After that The music was taken from the house and the halls were eerie with the quiet, for 10 years the music was gone. But today was different! Father must have good news about something to allow the music.
I sat in my bed snuggled into my warm red and gold comforter just soaking in the music. I have missed it so much. I fell into almost a trance like state listening to my mother play when my lady-in-waiting knocked on my door.
“Do come in Elizabeth!” I yelled for her to come in and I wondered if she had been enjoying the music as much as I am.
“Good Morning Princess, The Queen said she thought you would be awake already.”
“Well of course I am! Have you heard the beautiful songs Mother has been playing this morning I have been soaking it up for nearly an hour.”
“I am thrilled to hear that you so happy my lady but now it is time to get up and start the day. I have a few of the servants bringing up the bath and some hot water. Your father has some huge news for you I hear.”
It seemed like before I could blink I was in and out of the bath dry and having my corset tightened. “Your mother wishes for you to wear the dress grandmother had sent over as a gift for your 18th birthday.”
The dress she spoke of was the dress my mothers mother had had made for me nearly a year ago. It was made if pale pink silk and cream colored lace and golden colored thread had sown the whole piece of art together. It truly was a masterpiece and I had never warn it. The dress alone without my crinoline and hoop weighted nearly 45 pounds I had always been too afraid of what would happen to for I did not believe I was strong enough to carry such a dress. “Alright then, if that is what she wants than that is what I shall do.”
Once dressed Elizabeth and I made our way to the throne room where I could hear my parents laughter through the door. We entered and the laughter stopped. Father called me towards him. “Y/N, come to me.”
I slowly walked towards my parents, taking a deep curtsey before my father. He said my name again and pointed to the seat beside him. The seat that was once meant for my twin. I stood beside the seat and stared at the king. “Sit down child!”
It felt strange sitting somewhere that was meant for my brother but I always did as Father asked, he was not happy often I wanted to keep him this way as long as I can.
“As you know my child your brother has been passed many years now and I have no rightful heir to my kingdom. Being that you are of age and the eldest it would seem that you are in line for the throne.” Before my father could even finish I had jumped out of my seat overjoyed. “I accept Father I wouldn’t be happier to be Queen and rule your kingdom on my own.”
“On your own? On your own!? That is absolutely absurd a women could never run my Kingdom and never will. Now if you would sit back down I would like to finish my news.” I quietly sat back disappointed. “Thank you, now where was I? Oh yes. See as that I have no sons, for the kingdom to be kept within our family you would need to marry a royal or noble that will be getting nothing from their family, meaning a younger brother and, here comes to good news, your mother and I have spoken with the royal family of a kingdom not far from here and they have graciously accepted our offer. Within the hour their youngest son Prince Lucas will be arriving and in six months time you will be married and at the end of the year the two of you will be crowned King and Queen. You will not fight me on this Y/N I am doing what is best for you and for the kingdom. Besides he is a fine young man and he is eager to meet you.
Okay so this is part of the first part of Luke’s part just to see what you all think. Let me know?
