The morning sun shines into the room and lighting the room. She blinks and slightly yawns.. The most beautiful girl in the kingdom, one true to her name...
"Princess Dawn... It's time for your royal bath" said her Lady in waiting from outside the room, behind the closed door.
She talks to herself... "Can't a girl have her pretty sleep. It is just eight in the morning".
"I'm sorry your highness but you really need to wake up."
"Elsa... You're disturbing my sleep". Replied the drowsy princess.
"Your highness, please you have a pretty tight schedule today. And her majesty would get pretty angry at me if you don't wake up now. Please don't let me lose my job". Pleaded the Lady in waiting.
"I love it when you beg Elsa... " she giggles.
"Okay, that does it, princess. " Elsa signals the guards standing outside the princess's chambers and they open the door for her while smiling.
"Same old, same old. The princess and Elsa, what a pair." One of the guards spoke smiling to the other guard.
"Princess Dawn of Grendel, heaven knows I've been patient enough. Get up young lady".. said the angry Lady in waiting."
"Ohhh kill joy. Well, I've got to give it to you, your patience lasted umm ten minutes. You're improving".
Dawn covers her head with the cover sheets, an evil grin was registered on Elsa's face and she drags the cover sheets off Dawn's body. She moves closer to the window and open the drapes letting the sun rays enter the room more.
"Close them, Elsa, this is not fair".
"Life is not fair. You are a princess and with it come responsibilities. You have your dance class, etiquette class, history class, strategy class and training. You need to get up. I can't do this every day. Please". Begged her lady in waiting.
"Loosen up Elsa".
She snuck up close to Elsa while she was distracted with her thoughts and use her pillow to hit her head.
She giggles." You should have seen your face earlier Elsa... "
"You just... huh princess.. " before she completes her statement, Dawn hits her on the head with her pillow again and laughs in the bed. Elsa takes another pillow and draws closer to where Dawn was on the bed.
"Oh no, you don't."
"Ohh yes I do Dawn."
"No noo you do not dare Elsa."
"Is that a dare Dawn... You know me, I am terrible at backing down".
"Ohhh I hate this side of you".
"Nooe you love it princess, and you love bringing it out, get ready."
She smiles as she lands the pillow on the princess, and hits her trice. Feeling satisfied, she smiles and turns around. Dawn gets up and hit her with her pillow again.
" Pillow fight... Haha hahaha haa haha..come on Elsa, admit it, you love it" she says to Elsa as she hits her with her pillow and Elsa hits her with another pillow. They engage in a pillow fight, suddenly the doors swing open and the girls froze in their stance ready to pounce on each other, but the eyes glaring at them made the pause.
"What in the world is the meaning of this.? "
"Your majesty. I'm sorry. " Elsa quickly regains her composure and bows to the queen.
"The princess should be having her bath now, instead you both are here indulging yourselves in a child's game. " said the queen.
"Yes, your majesty. I am very sorry, it won't happen again. Please excuse me. "
She exits the bed-chamber to the bathroom to prepare the princess a bath.
"Mother, you know Elsa wasn't at fault here. I made her do it. "
"Is that the morning greeting I get from my one and only daughter?.
"Sorry, mother. Good morning. How do you do?" Asked her caring daughter.
"I am fine my dear. You need to get ready, today is an important day. "
"What's happening, today mother". asked her curious daughter.
"Well, you just wait and see. Elsa, is the bath ready? "
"Yes your majesty, all done". replied Elsa.
"Okay, I'll leave you to the task Elsa. See you at breakfast my love. " the queen said and walks out of the door.
"Phew.. " she sighs and turns to look at Dawn.
"Well, that went well I guess" she smiles at Elsa. "I'm sorry I got you into trouble." Dawn apologizes to Elsa.
"It is okay, princess. I should not have allowed you to sway me. It is my fault, as your lady in waiting I should know best. Now come your bath is ready just the way you like it. "
"What would I do without you Elsa" she gets up from the bed and moved towards her bathtub.
"Literally nothing your highness " she laughs at her reply.
"Honestly everything dear" she smiles back at Elsa. "That's why I learnt behind mother's back." she seems thoughtful and suddenly broke out of her thoughts when Elsa lightly touched her shoulder.
"My my. Enough chatting already. We have alot of things to do".
After her bath, she applies her oil on her skin and gently massages it into her skin. Soon the room was filled with the all too familiar scent of olive mint and lavender.She sighs as she inhales the scent. She put on her under garments and wears her gown with the assistance of two other maids. Onr fastens the halter belt, while the other gently raise her hair. She is escorted to sit at her dressing table, where Elsa awaits her. She sits and they all get to work on her hair and applies light make up.When they were done, she opens her eyes to see her reflection in the mirror.. And as usual she was breathtaking.Each day, she she's a finer version of herself from the smooth touch of her maids. Her hair was let down, and the corners weaved and where they meet at the centre, was carefully pinned using a beautiful hairpin, keeping the curls in place. Her eye shadow, dark blue matching the colour of her dress. Her
"Patience, patience my jewel, we would have a ball to celebrate your twentieth birthday and your title as the Crown Princess of Grendel" her father said with smiles written all over his face.Dawn thinks to herself again " Phew" she sighs. "I'd thought he wanted to say marriage. Thank goodness he didn't. "She smiles and look at her parents "thank you dad, mum.""That's not all Dawn" her mother replied wiping the corners of her lips with a handkerchief and putting it on the table. She signals for the table to be cleared, two different maids came and clear up the dishes and left.Another set comes with some fruits and plates. There were grapes, strawberries, blue berries, apples and pear. Elsa serves Dawn, as did the queen's lady royal Gracie.Isabel sat there rather impatient, tired of her mother's silent torture. But none of these
She got to the throne room, the guards announced her arrival and opened the doors, she walked in and curtsied before the king and queen, as did her lady in waiting."Your majesties"."My princess" her father stretched his right hand in front if him to her, she walks closer to him, takes his palm in her hands, held her gown with her left hand and curtsied to him. He lightly kisses the back of her palm and she goes to sit at his left hand side near his throne.She turns to her head to face her mother and with a bow of her head she spoke "Mother, you are stunning as usual"."Thank you dearest" she gave a slight nod to her daughter.Her mother was dressed in a beautiful light purple gown, with the sleeves at her elbow and a similar gloves in design to that of her daughter but light purple in colour to cover her fingers up to her elbow. Her gown hugged her breast and fled do
Dawn gets to her chambers and was so happy. She had a big smile on her face as she sang. Meanwhile Elsa just stood by the door looking at the princess."Come on Elsa, sing with me, or dance with me"."I thought you didn't like to dance". Replied Elsa."I like it but I love archery and swordsmanship more. ""So what now? The Ambassador would still come, this evening or tomorrow morning your highness. ""Well yes, tonight at dinner, would try to convince my parents once more"."And if they don't agree? ""Well then, I would cross that road when the time comes. For today, I'm going to enjoy my freedom. Tell me what should I do? I feel alive, but something is missing. " she ponders in her mind."You can go for archery lessons"."Ummm, no, I'm not feeling it" replied Dawn."You
"You, you are going to pay for that bread" the baker said in anger.The enraged baker walked close to Dawn glaring at her."Me, what has this got to do with me? " asked Dawn."You had that scoundrel and you let her go with my bread. " he grabs Dawn by her collar hard, making her hat fall off."How is that my problem, I only helped her get up" explained Dawn."Perhaps you are in this with that brat"."That's ridiculous, I don't know them".Elsa who was admiring the goods turned and saw someone holding Dawn up."Oh my God, this is bad" she hurries to meet Dawn."You either pay for the bread or I hand you over to the soldiers.""I don't have any money". Dawn said trying to free her shirt from his grip."Then soldiers it is." Just then some soldiers passes and the baker
The royal physician talks to the queen "Your majesty I'm sorry, but she is still not responding.""What? Do something, my daughter had Ben unconscious for three days. Don't let her die"."She is having a fever, and if this persists there may not be away to.. "The door suddenly opens and a small girl runs inside surprising the queen and the royal physician."She would survive," the little girl said cutting the royal physician short. "Dawn will survive, the princess is a fighter. She won't die, she would wake up soon" the small girl was crying heavily. "Right? Dawn would survive and play with me, she would be okay".The queen smiles and pat the little girl's head."It's all my fault, I wanted to eat some apples, she offered to get some for me, I should have stopped her. I didn't.""You didn't know she couldn't c
They continue running as the soldiers chase after them. The girls both run up to a house top, Dawn jumps to the next house and she gestures for Elsa to follow her lead and jump but she hesitate."Come on El, you can do it, just jump.""I'm scared Dawn. I can't "."Sure you can, come on the soldiers are on their way" persuaded Dawn."Stop right there, in the name of the king halt". Shouted one of the soldiers."Elsa, jump, take a leap, hurry, they are coming"."No I can't, I would take the long way down. Go on without me, I can manage, I would distract them" she smiles at Dawn."What nonsense are you talking about, come on El, you can do it"."No, that's you, you are brave. I would meet you at the forest. Go on Dawn. I would be fine. Bye"."You better not let them catch you El. P
"What was that for?" the young man complained."For calling me a psycho, not believing princess"."I'm getting it wrong, you are a psycho, not trusting, terrible, unreasonable, hard to deal with young lady".His statement infuriates her and she launches with the stick straight at him, but this time around he holds the stick and spun her around, with the stick in her hands, now close to her throat as he holds her in place."There, there, easy there. Steady"." Steady?" She scoffs. "Do I look like a horse to you dimwit? You're impossible ". She struggles and breaks away from his hold.He only laughs after looking at her for some time."What's funny? " Dawn asked him."You are," he said and took several steps forward, getting closer to her."What are you doing?" Dawn asked, already in a fighting stance."I think I should be asking you that, you're in a fighting stance." He arched his brows at her, gesturing at her stance.This girl was simply unbelievable."Well you are coming close
