THE ROYAL MAID
(The woman after his heart)
Alondria’s POV ♥️
I curled up like an Armadillo inside the sewer passage where Marco left me and immediately bursted into tears.
All my life I’ve always been unlucky but never have I ever taught my luck would run out in this way..
Everything is just spiraling out of control and I’m always in the middle of it which I can no longer bear it any longer..
The King wants me..
His brother wants me..
The Prince wants me..
The queen also wants me…
And oh—Princess Reana wants me dead..
Everyone wants me for one bad thing or the other and I don’t want to belong to anyone like a piece of property..
‘Alondria??’..I heard a whispery voice from the deeper end of the sewer and quickly jolted from the ground..
‘Who is there?? Who is there??’..I asked as I walked further..
‘Alondria??’..The voice called out again and I sniffed loudly..
‘Who is there come out so I can see you’..I warned again only to find an old woman who looked very haggard like a slave..
‘You are one very special child Alondria,you will bring the evil in this Kingdom to it’s knees’..She replied and I frowned deeply…
‘What do you mean by that?? I would bring the evil to it’s knees?? That makes absolutely no sense!!’..
‘It makes no sense now my dear child but as time flies you’ll come to understand and you’ll see how important you are to the seven kingdoms’..She replied and mysteriously disappeared..
What is going on?!..
‘Old woman?!! Old woman?!!’..
King Roland’s POV ♥️
The Next Morning
‘Time has flied way too long Roland and the Kings want their daughters back’..Mother said as she walked into my study and I rolled my eyes..
‘I thought the—
‘Forget about that Roland you have to choose your bride now and you have to do it today! The kingdom is in agitation’..she said aloud..
‘Mother I am not ready for a bride now and—
‘It’s been more than thirty days Roland,forget about the activities of the paupers you have to choose a wife now!’..
‘Fine!! If that’s what everyone wants then I’ll choose a wife tonight!! Let every princess in the castle dress in their best garments and assemble every socialite in the Royal chambers…I’ll make my decision and I’ll pick my queen’..
