{Hair Color}
Alice's hair colour, like the rest of her, is very unique. The Lockhart's pride themselves on their luscious hair, a mystical shade of silver that shines light blue in the sun.

{Eye Color}
Blue like the oceans, or the sky, some may say. Alice's eyes remind herself of the beautiful sapphires people wore around her in the courts as she grew up in the palace. The shade of blue is very dependant on her emotions though. When she is happy, the blue is light and airy. When she is sad they are like the waves of a dark ocean storm.

{Height}
An average 5'6"

{Physical Description}
Alice was raised to not only focus on her intelligent side, but was also thrown in the midst of the world of beauty. Since she was young she had maids wait on her hand and foot, applying her makeup, styling her hair, dressing her in the finest dresses. Luckily she grew into herself after puberty, growing tall and lean with just enough womanly curves. Though many girls dream of these luxuries, Alice prefers the natural look; no makeup, simple hair, and pleasantly plain dresses.

When it is time for an event though, she does know how to look the part and the many people who have met her like this all agree that she is a stunning woman. Men vie after her attention, women wish to be like her.

{Personality}
Alice is a very gentle woman, shy and unconfident around those she is not used to. Growing up around servants that come and go though, she has learned to just stick to her own company and converse with only a few people she know won't leave her. Alice doesn't believe the life as a Princess befits her very well, as she doesn't like taking advantages of all the luxuries her family can afford, or taking advantage of anyones kindness at all. She likes to be as independent as she can, but of course she cannot do some of the most trivial things on her own without maids or her butler. This frustrates her to no end, but she doesn't show this. It would take a lot for Alice to lose her cool demeanour.

Of course though, Alice has many good qualities that leads others to believe she will make a grey Queen one day. Graceful as a swan, and ever caring, Alice tries to act her best and do her best for the well being of her community. Though not most know it though, she can have a bit of a stubborn streak, especially when it comes to meeting suitors and going to meetings about arranged marriages.

{History}
Alessanda Blair Lockhart was born one rainy evening to a gorgeous woman named Charlotte Lockhart and her handsome husband, Edward Lockhart. Of course, these were not your every day, run-of-the-mill civilians. Robert and Charlotte were royalty; the King and Queen, making the newborn baby their only child and Princess.

The Princess had a very busy childhood as soon as she could walk and talk.Her parents enrolled her in a wide assortment of classes; from horse riding, to etiquette, do dancing and music, and even history. She had personal tutors of course, and couldn't be sent to a normal school. Due to this she was a rather lonely child. Her best friends were stuffed animals, her childhood games were played out through the pages of books, she never took interest in other children as she knew they wouldn't stay for long. Luckily her parents noticed this and took action to get her a permanent friend.

Alice was seven when she met him; the boy who would become her future. She had been on break from classes and was reading out in the garden when her parents brought him to her. She wasn't shocked by the fact that she had a new butler, but she was shocked by the fact that the new butler was much younger than all the others. Alice was wary of him for a few months, and never truly opened up to him for close to a year, when she finally realized he wouldn't be going away. He took care of her and watcher her play and would read to her if she asked. Her life was much better, much brighter with him in it.

Princess Alessandra blossomed into the young woman of today, with her Butler by her side. She only grew closer to him and her bond and trust for him grew over his many years of service. She was grateful for him... But now she wonders if her newfound feelings for him are dangerous.

So begins...

It was a bright sunny day at the Lockhart's castle. As usual Edwin was walking around the castle, fixing every little detail to be absolutely perfect. He checked the clocks around him. "6:10.." Edwin said to himself as he headed up the extraordinary flight of stairs. It was time for the kingdom's beloved princess to wake up. Edwin had already been awake for hours like always. The servants were all gradually waking up and going to their posts.

The kitchen staff was already almost done with breakfast as the maids were setting up the table. Everything was to be spick and span for the royal family. Edwin's foot steps were soft as he knocked once upon entering Alice's bedroom. He walked over to her bedside, and took a moment for himself as his eyes gazed at the beauty sleeping soundly. '....When did she become a woman?' Edwin thought to himself, remembering the young girl he met years ago.

The flowers around her accented the child's already present gorgeous appearance. His poor eyes had never seen such radiance as when he saw her. They were together ever since. And by together, it was as butler and princess, but they shared a bond that couldn't be ignored. One not of just friends, not just best friends, but even more.

Edwin snapped back into reality realizing he needed to keep the schedule. "Alessandra, It's time to wake up." His smooth voice resonated throughout the room. Edwin was always warm and kind to her. He always had a gentleness towards her that could never be given to anyone else. Edwin walked to the curtains and flung them open, allowing the light to enter the room. Even though Alice had told him millions upon billions of times to call her Alice, Edwin still stuck to her full name. Although he'd be lying if he said he'd never snuck in her nick name a few times. "Break fest will be starting soon. I'm sure your father and mother would like to see your face at the table." He assured walking around her room, making sure it was clean.

Edwin couldn't take his eyes off the adorable sleepy princess. And his heart couldn't help but race as she approached him. If he could have it his way, this morning would be one after their honeymoon, they both wake up sleepy, but in love-'Whoa! Get ahold of yourself.' Edwin furrowed his eyebrows at his own wishful thinking.

He quickly blocked those thoughts out as he turned to Alice. "Although I may come in handy as an alarm clock, I do hope to see the day that you might be able to sleep in for once." Edwin said kindly. His hand reached to her, moving some more strands of her stunning long hair out of her petite face. His hand wondered to her cheek, cupping it before he suddenly walked away. 'That was close!...What's wrong with me..?' He thought rubbing his hands as he walked towards the door.

Edwin cleared his throat before speaking to the young lady. "Well your highness, You need to get dressed. I shall await here to escort you to break fest." He said clearly. Edwin stood at the doorway, waiting for her the maids to help her in the bathroom. Edwin didn't make eye contact as he felt somewhat distant. 'I need to start being more careful. I've had impulsive thoughts about the princess but I didn't know they'd be so intense. I need to watch myself. It could be great trouble if I ever acted on them.' His mind rambling on.

Edwin began making her bed. He figured it was something he could do to distract himself. He folded the blankets and fluffed the pillows, making sure it looked elegant and refined. The exact way a princesses room should look.

Alice smiled softly to herself when she felt the warm touch of his fingers moving hair away from her face. She turned to look up at him and say something, when his hand drifted down to caress her cheek. Her breath caught in her throat as she saw the deep look in his eyes. It was only there for a brief moment, and then it was gone as he was pulling himself away again. "Ed..." She whispered, but it fell on deaf ears as he was already busying himself with her bed and ushering her off to get ready. She sighed and smiled softly before going over to her lavish dressing room.

The women all came forward to greet her with nice words and smiles. She recognized few of the women; thus the life of a Princess. Servants would come and go like the seasons, only leaving her dazed in their wake. Even yet she still dedicated time to learning each of their names... Even if it ended up hurting more when she never saw them again. Alice smiled and nodded to them quietly, allowing them to take her to the bath where they stripped her and scrubbed her down gently. A part of this infuriated her. Was she not capable of doing this herself? Of course she couldn't be mad at the maids, it was their job and they were following orders. She couldn't blame her father, he was just trying to keep her looking her best. So Alice just went with the treatment.

After being washed and perfumed she was dressed in a beautiful blue gown. Alice resisted hissing in pain as the corset was weaved around her middle, and instead closed her eyes and bared the pain. She was then sat in front of the mirror, the women all saying pretty lies of how beautiful she was, how she must be the prettiest woman alive, that she would make a man very happy one day. She just bit her tongue and smiled. She didn't want to treat these women badly.

When they finished with light makeup and pinning her silver hair back into the usual braided half-up-do, she came back out to her bedroom. She let out a soft breath, feeling a bit winded. She never could get used to the feeling of the corset crushing her ribcage and lungs, yet that was a price she had to pay. Alice's face was lit with a smile though when she saw her butler idly fixing various objects in her room. She resisted the urge to go hug him; so tall and handsome and mysterious... "Win, you know I'll just move all those things again, why must you try?" She joked softly and waited for him by the door. She didn't want to go to breakfast but her father wasn't the most patient of men.

Edwin saw her emerge from the bathroom. She was truly radiant. Even though Edwin knew how beautiful she was without any of those accessories. He stared at her pretty form for a minute or two before coming back to reality. Edwin couldn't help but chuckle at her remark. "It may not be possible, but I can always dream, your highness, and also how many times must I remind you to call me Edwin, it's not proper." Edwin showed her a charming smile as his eyes met hers.
"But,..You look truly stunning, Alessandra." Edwin kept eye contact.

A certain sadness and longing was present in his stare. As if he were looking at something he would never be able to have no matter how much he wanted it. Edwin's eyes went back to finishing up making the bed.
His slender body bent across the bed, fixing the sheets and straighten the comforter. Although he was slim, he was strong.
Edwin used to pick Alice up by her waist and swing her around, as if she were flying.

But, alas Edwin hasn't done that in quite some time, although he would be perfectly capable of it.
There was also a time a few years ago when Alice had a nightmare. To calm her down Edwin kissed her cheek and held her, telling her stories to calm her down.

In fact, Edwin hadn't really touched her in an affectionate or loving way for awhile. Edwin had been trying to resist and keep himself at a safe distance. He had recently noticing himself wanting to kiss her soft pink lips, or caressing her gentle skin, but he tried to warrant them off as just manly impulses although he feared there were feelings attached to them, he dismissed it, trying not to think about it. "All done!" He nodded to himself, finishing cleaning up the room. "Are you ready to go down stairs Princess?" Edwin asked.

Edwin nodded and began walking to the dining room. Edwin walked with Alice, having his own thoughts race through his mind. 'Lately The King has been much more persistent about Alice's marriage options. I heard him say that Alice is almost completely ready to get married.' Edwin sighed to himself. All Edwin wanted was for Alice to be happy, and he knew that having her husband chose for her was not what she'd want.

Edwin has known Alice most of her life and he knew what type of person she was. Although he knew the heart can change, he figured she still wanted to marry for love. That was what she told him when they were younger anyway. 'Hmm..The Kings having a upcoming ball. He says it's just a party, but I know it's to introduce Alice to all sorts of princes and nobles.' Edwin walked.
'What would I do if Alice fell in love and got married?' Edwin thought, mentally panicking.

'I'd have to resign,...there's no way that I could be around her when she's in love with someon- Whoa, Why would that bother me....?' Edwin thought, catching himself thinking selfishly again. Edwin just shook his head, trying not to think about it.
Although his mind was going, he was still aware, especially when Alice, who appeared to be spaced out, tripped on the last step of the stair case. "Princess!" Edwin called as he quickly caught her. Alice's head was pressed to Edwins chest as he had his arms wrapped around her. "Please,...be more careful." He smiled and sighed.

Edwin looked at her innocent face as they were close together. As she backed away, He gritted his teeth and continued walking. "I'm just glad you are safe, your highness." They approached the dining room and Edwin pulled out her chair for her. The king and queen greeted her as maids buzzed around.

Edwin placed the napkin in her lap, which is something he does once in awhile. Edwin doesn't want to over baby her, but he likes doing everything he can for her. Edwin bowed to the royal family and excused himself back into the kitchen where he ate his break fest. The kitchen staff made small talk as Edwin sat on the counter and listened.
Edwin didn't engage in conversation with the workers too often as his mind was usually full of what tasks he had to do that day.

After breakfast Edwin always awaited the princess outside the dining room. The conversations in the dining room could faintly be heard but today they seemed rather loud and Edwin wondered if everything was alright. A few maids passed him by and they all began talking about preparations for the ball.

Once Edwin heard this he raced off into the one place he knew she'd be. The place she always went when she was sad, the gardens. In almost no time Edwin appeared at the old gazebo that he used to read stories to her.
There he saw his beloved princess crying, her small form shaking from the stress of all the pressures her family has forced upon her. "Princess.." Edwin said softly as he sat down beside her.

He laid his hand on her back as his hand wiped her tears. "Was it about finding a husband?" Edwin asked, showing an expression of true concern. He wrapped his arms around her and held her tightly, allowing her to cry into his chest.
Edwin didn't want to step out of his duties, but he couldn't help it. Edwin's lips pressed against her head, kissing it gently.
"Everything will be alright,..Alice." He said in a soothing tone, using her preferred name.

"Your father only wants what's best, as do I." Edwin said still sounding sweet. 'If only I could take away all her sorrows I would in an instant.' Edwin thought, furrowing his brows. When Alice got hurt he felt the same hurt, that was the bond they shared. "Please Alice, is there something I could do to help?" He asked, petting her head comfortingly.

Edwin sighed. He wasn't sure what to do. He just wanted to take her pain away, but he didn't know how. Edwin held her closer, trying his best to make her feel safe. "It is your future and only you can decided what to do with it, but..." Edwin said as he backed away and got on the ground on one knee. He held both her hands with his white gloved ones. "I will remain by your side." Edwin smiled. "You are my beloved Princess and that will never change." His eyes looked at her calmly, while he showed a charming, gentle grin.

Edwin held her hands, and bent down, kissing them lightly. Her hands weren't all that he wanted to kiss, but he knew they were all that he could. "You're so very strong Alice, I envy your courage. If anyone could ever make a change, it's you." Edwin said reassuringly. "Remember that story I used to tell you about? About the boy who fell in love with a little bird. She was caged and then he freed her? I believe your that little bird. Now you just need to find your boy." He chuckled.
It almost pained Edwin to say these things. His feelings for Alice were becoming even more obvious and even he couldn't deny them. But he needed to hide them, or so he thought.

Edwin's eyes watched her as she ran off to her classes. He knew he should've sent her their earlier, and he would talk to them later and apologize for her tardiness, but frankly, Edwin didn't care at the moment.
He placed his hands on his cheek where her warmth had just left from.
His eyes were dark as he closed them, remembering all the time they've spent together.
"I wish I was the kind of girl who could run away with her forbidden love." Her words resonating in his mind.
He heaved a heavy sigh, "And I, wish I was the kind of man who could run away with his forbidden love." Edwin said sadly.

Edwin stood up and decided to make a bouquet. He gathered some of her favorite flowers from the garden, then went back to the castle. From their he put them into a clear blue vase, filled with water and placed them by her bedside.
Making her bouquets was a habit he had gotten into whenever he was either sorry or trying to cheer her up.

As Alice's classes wrapped up and dinner time rolled around, Edwin had just finished helping set the table as he awaited outside the music room for Alice to emerge so that he may escort her to the table. He smiled, listening to the beautiful music that could be heard from the room.

Edwin glanced over and held out his arm for her to grab onto, although he knew she would anyway. He really liked when they were close like they were now, it always made him feel good. If Edwin could make his future his own, he'd be a wealthy prince and He'd be strolling around the garden in his handsome attire with her holding his arm just as she is now. Edwin snapped back into reality once he heard her voice.

"It went well, my princess. Thank you for asking." Edwin smiled. "And how was your day?" He asked curiously. "I heard you in the music room, beautiful as always. Did all your classes go well?" Edwin added as they approached the dining room, Edwin held out her chair and after getting her answer he bowed and went back to the kitchen. Edwin grabbed a plate of food and only ate a little bit before racing off to apologize to her teachers. They were very gracious and didn't think anything of it. Although her dancing instructor asked for him to fill in for her tomorrow, to which he agreed to.

Edwin went back to wait outside the dinning room doors, awaiting Alice and also making sure another episode like this morning didn't happen. Edwin had been skipping meals lately due to him overly taking care of Alice. Instead of eating he'd run small errands like he just had or it could be as simple as just making sure her bed was ready for her to sleep. But, he took his duties very seriously and wouldn't let up.

Edwin smiled and chuckled to himself once he saw her bring him out something to eat. 'She truly knows me best.' He thought happily. He took the cake and bowed slightly. "Thank you Princess, I'll eat it when I retire for the night." He said kindly placing his hand on the small of her back as he lead her up the stairs.
The maids began turning out lights and closing curtains as they lit candles for low light.

As they went into her bedroom, maids her already for her in her bathroom, ready to change her into her night clothing."Allow me.." Edwin set the cake on her dresser as his hands went to her jewelry, he removed her necklace and stood behind her with there bodies close. He cautiously went to the back of her dress and began loosening her corset. He undid any small buttons or holds. Edwin hadn't been as daring before, but he felt different, more courageous. However, he stopped there and turned away, quickly preparing her bed.
His face had a slight blush and he could feel the lusting gaze his eyes had.

Edwin was bending down, fixing her blankets and fluffing her pillows. He was trying not to look at her in fear of what he might do, especially with only a curtain separating them. He lit the night time candles and made sure her room was cozy and warm. He continued prepping when he heard her soft voice call to him. Hearing his name he turned around to be met by her colliding with him, her head on his chest. Edwin gasped slightly as the maids scurried out. "P-Princess..." His voice said a little confused. He wasn't a mind reader, but he knew her enough to know that her actions were out of bravery and he could tell she was slightly scared of the consequences of her boldness.

Edwin's arms went to her shoulders, then slid around to her back, holding her close. He chuckled at her grin and smiled peacefully at the face he loved so much. Edwin leaned down, his lips hovering above hers as his true passion came forth. He kissed her mouth and lips gently, then more firm and loving. He knew this was her first kiss, and in the past had swore not to take it, but in his heart, he always wanted to. His strong arms held her as he coddled her closer. He stood back up, standing to his tall height and breaking the kiss, as he was awaiting her reaction. His arms strength let up, making it easy for her to escape if she wanted.

Edwin's eyes went wide as she held onto him, spinning around. "A-Alice! Whoa there!" He exclaimed as he held her waist still, trying to calm her down. Edwin sighed as he looked at his beloved princess. "Alice.." Edwin said, looking down at her. 'If only...we could be.' He thought sadly. Edwin cleared his throat and let go of her. "I'm sorry, It wasn't my intention to take your first kiss...I guess, I just lost control for a moment." He said, sounding a little distant, as if he was fighting a war within himself. His gloved hand touched her chin as he stared into her eyes. Silence swept over for a few seconds before he spoke. "You need to go to sleep." He said, walking away to her bed.

He finished fluffing her pillows and held the covers open. "There." He said, finishing making her bed as comfortable as possible. Edwin looked over at her smiling. He felt confused. Half of him wanted to kiss her more, and touch her soft skin with his bare hands, but the other half felt like he had to never touch her in that manor again.
