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 can go for sword training " suggested Elsa.
"No, I don't feel like fighting now".
"You want a cool bath? "
"No" replied Dawn once more.
"No" the princess rejected.
"Arrrghhh, choose one your highness "
"Well suggest something worth choosing Elsa".
"Dance class, the queen would be thrilled. "
Dawn shakes her head "that's not it either".
"Then what is? Well its not like you would want to sneak out of the palace and go to town in disguise, or go swimming in the river. Just better go master your archery.. "
Dawn cuts her short and squeals "brilliant Elsa, that's it. "
"That's what? " asked the perplexed Elsa.
"I'm going to sneak out of the palace and go to the market in disguise."
"Oh no you don't princess, you are going to get yourself in trouble " warned Elsa.
"No, perhaps yes, but I won't be alone, you are coming with me."
"What? Your highness, the queen, if her majesty finds out, she won't take it funny".
"Says who she's going to find out, its just you and i that knows about this. If you are with me, how was is she going to find out, she would think I'm training or stuff".
"Your highness, remember the last we left the palace, the queen didn't take it funny. "
"Ohh come on, you and my mother should loosen up. I could go swim in the river".
"Princess Dawn, you want the queen to have my head don't you. This is no good, why did I ever make mention of this. " lamented Elsa.
"Best suggestion you've given me Elsa" replied the princess.
Dressed in a man's outfit, a pair of leather trousers, a shirt and a jacket plus leather boots, the princess packed her hair and wore a hat on her head and added a fake mustache. Elsa dressed a bit similar, except she didn't wear a hat and a jacket.
Elsa begins to wonder, how she got roped into doing this.
"Elsa, let's go."
They stroll in the market, Dawn began checking the different wares sold in the market.
She sees a child begging for bread form a baker, but the man drives him away. She feels sad for the child, as she walks towards the child, she notices another child, a little bit older than the first child, perhaps by a year or two, steals a bread while the baker was distracted, but has she was climbing down from where the bread was stacked on top of, she missed a step and fell down, alerting the baker. The baker turns only to see the poor little thief trying to runaway with his loaf of bread.
He tries blocking her path.
"Got you now, there's no place to runaway you little scoundrel. " The man smiles as he laughs evilly.
The little girl smiles and spoke to herself. "Hehehe, let's see the who is the dumb one now" as she said that, she rushes towards him, while the man stretches his hand to grab her, the little girl slids down between his legs and ran away. As she ran with the bread, she turns to look at the baker who fell trying to catch her, she stops and laughs.
"Look at you now, hehheeehhhe".
"I'm going to get you, just wait for me". He said to her while trying to get up.
"Come and catch me" she sticks her tongue out which only angers the baker more, he threw a stone at her and she barely escapes, then he gets up.
"Ohh oohhh, he's coming" she starts running, but because she wasn't looking ahead, she bumped into Dawn and the bread fell down. Dawn holds the girl and picks up the bread.
"Good, catch that little thief, the man shouted.
The little girl looks at Dawn and struggled.
"Let me go and I won't hurt you"
"Hmm feisty are we" Dawn smiles at her and the man was getting close to them.
"I'm sorry please let me go. Don't hand me over and that bread, please ".
Dawn looks at her and took several steps back, she handed her the bread and spoke to close to her ear "run, and don't look back" then she let her go.
The little girl ran to a corner and took the small boy with her and they ran away. Soon there were no sign of them. The baker tries to pursue them but looses sight of them. Dawn started laughing and the baker turned to her.
"You, you are going to pay for that bread" the baker said in anger..
"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
Nick and Dawn continued talking for a long time."I feel happy, I don't know why though"."Well Diane, I think it may be because we are both here together. I have always come here alone. This is the first time enjoying this serenity with someone else. And you are a nice company ". Complimented Nick."Thank you, that was a nice thing to say. Well I guess you are right, although I do come here with my m... I mean my friend. ""That's true, where is she? ""She decided to lure the soldiers away and told me to go on without her". Dawn said sadly."Why are you saying it like that? . You are sad. What is the matter? ""Its nothing, its just she sacrificed her time for me to relax"."I can see, she's a good friend."."My best friend actually. Well time has gone. I've got to go".
They arrived at the palace, changed their outfit in Elsa's room and snuck into Dawn's chambers."There you are Dawn," the queen said.Dawn and Elsa were shocked."Mother""Greetings Your Majesty," Elsa greeted."I came by your chambers earlier, your attendants said you were not so sound, that you said you wanted to rest and no one should disturb you.""Yes mother, I'm sorry they didn't notify me of your arrival.""No, its all right, they were doing their jobs. I'm just glad you are better now, seeing you are strolling the palace grounds"."Yes, mother. Thank you for your concern.""Ohhh, lest I forget, we would be having dinner with our guests.""Ohh I see, all right mother, I'll be on time for dinner.""Very well dear. See you soon". The queen and her Lady royal and attendants all leave. Da
After her relaxing bath, her maids assisted her in dressing up. Once again she was a beauty to behold."Our princess is blessed by the Heavens, no matter the outfit, she is always pretty. " said Adella.Dawn simply smiles at them as she looks at her reflection in the mirror. She thinks again to when she touched Nick."What was that feeling I felt when our hands touched? It felt right, like it was meant to be meeting him. He is funny and a good company "She recalls how he pushed at her chest and she faintly blushed."What is wrong with you Dawn. You have a mission at hand, get these distractions away. You need to try and persuade father and mother. " she mentally scolded herself.She shakes her head and nods for her maids to open the door.She headed out of her chambers and straight to the dinning room.The doors open and she gently walk to wher
She stood up and left the dining hall, escorted by her maid and two guards."I am sorry you had to witness all that emissary, the arrangements would go on as planned. Be rest assured" the king reassured the surprised emissary."Its no problem your majesty. ""Please eat on, desserts would soon be served. Have the princess's meal and desserts be sent to her chambers. ""Yes, my queen." Her Lady royal bowed.-----------In Dawn's room, she sits on the cushion in her living room. One could notice tears about to spill from those beautiful eyes of hers. Her maids get ready her bath, while Elsa stands by the door of her living room.She thinks and talks to herself."Is it too much to ask? I just want to marry whom I love and not a stranger. But who do I love, I haven't met anyone yet. I just, it just doe
