I yawned as I rolled over in the bed and stared out the large window that over looked the gardens. Today was the start of something I’d been dreading. I knew this would be the start of me transitioning to king and that wasn’t what I wanted. Even from a young age all I wanted to do was be a guard or fight in the army. I wished I was younger than my brother or born into a different family. Usually by now my old maid had been to my room to make sure I was awake and we would sit up for hours talking about the most random stuff. She was probably the person I trusted most but for a few weeks now we haven’t been together as much as we used to. I think it had to do with the whole selection thing. Again another thing I hated. I didn’t want to have to chose. If I make the wrong choice ill felt like I would be letting my family down. I didn’t know if I should let my heart or mind speak for me.
I stood and stretched my muscular body and walked to the bathroom that separated my brother and my room. I splashed water on my face and stared at myself in the mirror for a while. I wasn’t king material. I thought to myself. My tux for the day was already laying out. I didn’t want to put it on. It made me feel uncomfortable. Like I was trapped in a world I didn’t belong in. I sighed and pushed myself off the sink and back to my room.
I decided I would go for a run in the gardens, which stretched 2 miles long and 1.5 wide. I tied up my shoes and quietly walked down the long staircase and put one of the many hidden doors that led to the inclosed green house and straight to a path. I encreased my speed as I went on. It cleared my mind.
For awhile until I realized I was back at the castles front. It was a typical castle. More modern. Part looked newer than others. That was due to a fire Years back, before I was born. I sighed and rolled my eyes as I walked in and waved my hand lazily to the guards who were wondering where I came from as I walked back in. Back up to the room I lived my whole life in. Before changing to the tux I found myself watching as cars that held my future in them started to pull up.
I leaned my head against the window of the car. They windows were tinted from the outside so I couldn’t be seen but I could see everyone else. I stretched my ankles and picked at the hem of the sweater (clothes) I was wearing. I knew I’d have to change my clothes to a dress when I got to the destination but for now I felt like myself. I didnt even know what dress is be wearing. It was picked out for me. Like this whole experience would be. Ive also barley ever seen the prince. Either of them for that matter. I couldn’t even tell you which was older. Though I knew the princess as she was the only girl.
I ran my hand through the blonde locks that lay over my shoulders. People were watching on the sides of the road to try and catch a glimpse of us ‘lucky ladies’. I didn’t feel very lucky. I wanted to be free. Not having everyone’s eyes on me and being told what I had to do. I was used to being my own boss.
As we approached I could feel my stomach start to work itself up. I felt like I was going to throw up. God I hope I didn’t. That’d be a horrible first impression. the car parked and people stood at the large entrance. The door opened and light came in to the dark car I’d been in for awhile now. I breathed in hard and gulped down my fear. I stood and put a small, yet scared smile on my lips and followed them into a room(drawing room one) in which all us girls would be waiting for further information.
this is kinda Long but just trying to get a good start. When it comes to times that they will be dressed up and such and you can post pics of what their dresses look like and all that also. the girls originally got a person who came to their door saying they were chosen but I didn’t play that out if you want to thats fine!
