The sight of the letter made me squeal in excitement. I lost count of how many times I reread the letter I wrote to the prince.
I looked at my beautiful handwriting one time whilst reading it.
~"Unto his majesty the crown prince of Aureum, Damon Aurum,
I hope your having a wonderful and a healthy evening.
I'm writing you this letter to address your permission of my presence at the palace for a cup of tea with your highness and have an evening chat if your royal highness is not occupied with palace work.
Here's a delightful poem that I hope will bring joy to your day.
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember
'We are nearer to spring than we were in September'
I heard a bird sing in the dark of December
Sincerely Lady Ariana of Glacies"~
I giggled in joy. This is just one step of getting the prince for fall for me. Just the two of us under the rays of sun drinking tea in the beautiful garden with the summer breeze brushing past us, then we would walk along the garden talking and laughing. 'Oh, what a delightful time we will have'
I blushed at the memory of the dance again and his beautiful golden eyes, his gentle voice whispering in my ear at what a great dancer I was. I covered my eyes in the second-hand embarrassment. I could never forget the warm breath against my skin.
I jumped, startled by the sudden knock at my door.
"My Lady Ariana, it is I. Lilly" the voice behind the door said.
"u-uh yes you have permission to enter" I answered. I crossed my fingers in hopes that Diana is willing to see me. I must talk to her for my upcoming plans. I smirked when the thought of Diana begging on her knees for mercy right after I marry the prince.
Lily opens the door and walked in with courtesy bow like any maid should. She looked at me with glee and a smile perked on her face.
"Diana instructed me to inform you that she is willing to have a chat with your lady ship when she is free"
I shot up from my seat. "Thank you, Lily," I said with a smile. This time it wasn't fake but sincere, Diana's maids are mine to command and loyal to me and only me not Diana. Giving away Lily and Stella to Diana as birthday gifts to Diana was the best plan, I had come up with 10 years ago.
Lily's eyes glimmered in joy. I wanted to gag at the horrid creature in front of me. 'Who does she think she is to smile at me like that'.
