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".
"Can't you stay a little while? Please beauty" he begs her as they both stood up.
"I'm sorry, I also have to find her so we can go home. My mother would be worried sick looking for me."
"Please, pretty please" he begged her again.
"I had a nice time Nick, thank you very much.".
"Anytime" he smiles at her and she ran away. "Would I see you again? " he shouted after her.
"I guess so" she yelled back.
He ran after her, "how about tomorrow, same time".
"I would try. Bye" she increased her speed and rushed out of the forest.
He stopped chasing after her and smiled. "Till next time beauty. Till next time. " He jumps up several times feeling happy.
Elsa has since lost sight of the soldiers. She went about in the town, after sometime she that the sun has started going down and rushes to the forest.
"Ohh no, I lost track of time. Princess Dawn please be somewhere I can find you." She gets to the entrance of the forest and sees Dawn panting as she stood bending forward and leaning on a tree.
Dawn looks around and shush Elsa up.
"Elsa, I told you, whenever we are outside the palace call me Dawn not by my title. And besides call me Diane when we are outside the palace. I think changing my name is better. "
Elsa just stares at her "..... "
"Why are you staring at me that way?" Dawn asked her.
"I don't know, you tell me Diane.. "
"Well, its the name you're not sure about then".
"Good, you figured out that much. Well I hope you had a nice time alone. "
"What? Where you attacked? Did the soldiers follow you? What happened? Tell me. "
"Huh, none of that happened " Dawn looks at her like she's not okay.
"Then what is it, why didn't you spend it alone? " asked Elsa.
"I met someone " she replied smiling.
"Who Dawn? "
She just stood there, staring at the forest.
"Huh, hello princess.. Snap out of it". She claps her hands in front of Dawn, bringing her back to reality. "Who did you meet? Wait that boy who save you years ago? "
"Then who, I'm getting impatient here. "
"Let us be on our way, I'll tell you all about it". Dawn said to her, while moving past her. She walks a bit and notices Elsa not following. "Do you want mother to have a feat? Get moving Elsa. "
"You are acting funny Dawn". She walks closer and they headed home.
"So are you Elsa".
"I'm not, anyways keep talking princess".
"I love it when you are curious Elsa, its cute".
"Cut it out, princess. Stop teasing".
"You know I'm right".
"Whatever you say. Now spill".
"Feisty are we now. " Elsa only gets more impatient. "Okay, okay, I met the young man I bumped into in the market.
"You bumped into a lot of people Dawn. "
"The one I slapped "
"You could have easily said that. "
"Where's the fun if I don't tease you".
"Not fair Dawn. " she pouts at Dawn.
"Now you look like the little sister I never had".
"I'll take that as a compliment your highness"
"Stop with the royalty stuff till we get back to the palace Elsa. "
"As you wish Diane".
They keep talking on their way back to the palace and Dawn told Elsa all about what hat between her and Nick.
"That's more like it".
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
*******In the throne room, the king is seated on his throne with the Queen by his right-hand side. The king wore his suit and trousers with a pair of black leather shoes, having an intricate gold sword design on it.The queen was dressed as always in a magnificent gown.This time she wore a dark purple gown flowing down her shoes, with a turtle neck and long sleeves, a light makeup, a pair of gold earrings and bracelets and a pair of purple shoes having black gems decorating the front and as usual with a crown graciously sitting on top her head.Princess Dawn sat at her father's left-hand side. She wore a dark green flowing gown, with long sleeves and the neck cut a bit low reaching her cleavage.A silver necklace sat on that beautiful delicate neck, with matching bracelets, earrings and a pair of silver shoes, with a crown on her head.She was simply stunning, just like her mother the queen. What a l
Dawn left the throne room and headed to her chambers. The guards open the door and she enters. She goes to sit on her bed.Elaine and Adella goes to greet her as they bow before her."Welcome princess" they chorused."Would you like a cold drink? " Elaine asked the princess with a smile."Yes please ""Would you love some snacks your highness? The kitchen sent in your favorite, chocolate cake" Adella reported."Yes please, serve them"."Yes your highness " they both left to get the cold drink and chocolate cake."Princess Dawn, your letter"Elsa hands over the letter to the princess and she reluctantly takes it from her.Elaine walks in with a cold steel jug of water and a bronze cup on a tray and set them on the table in the princess's room.
She hurries through the passages, steps till they got to Elsa's room.They hurried in all the while watching their surroundings."Come in your highness "They both entered the small chambers Elsa lived in. Elsa goes to her wardrobe and brought out a simple maid outfit and handed it to the princess, while she gets another similar one and began changing. Meanwhile Dawn had gone to the changing room.Minutes later they were both through dressing up. Elsa brings out two cloaks and passed one on to Dawn's waiting arms and they both put it on."Ready? ""Ready your highness "Dawn nods and Elsa opens the door and they walked briskly away.Soon they had escaped the prison called the royal castle. And into the the town they went. There they paid for two horses, a white mane and a brown mane. Th
Dawn enters into the forests and soon finds her secret hideout. She stops her horse and gently comes down. She pets the lovely creature, patting her mane and using her fingers to comb it softly."Good girl, rest here okay or you want to come with me? " the horse neighs."I'll take take as a yes, let's go then. I have someone to introduce to you".As Nick hears the horse's neigh, he turns his head and gets up when his eyes landed on that damsel. He'll never get enough of her beauty, she leaves him out of breath anytime he lays his eyes on her.She walks closer to him with her horse. He smiles sheepishly at her."I thought you wouldn't come"."I thought you wouldn't wait"."I prayed to God so I'll be able to see you again. My prayers were answered"."I see"."You are beautiful ".<
She stood in front of the tree with Nick and her horse."So, let the plucking begin? ""Sure, I'll climb, while you pick them.. You shouldn't climb with a dress princess. "That was when she recalled that she was putting on a gown and not a pair of trousers."All right, thank you very much"."My pleasure".With that said Nick started climbing and plucking the apples, then he threw them down lightly for Dawn to catch. At times he would throw it a bit far just to taunt her."Nicholas""It is fun. Lighten up". He kept on throwing far making her run here and there. He threw another apple far off and Dawn just stood and watched the apple roll off."Aren't you picking them anymore?" he asked her amidst laughing."I see you think its funny right..? I wonder what would happen if
