Isabella

"Arranged marriages don't allow for true love, so who would want one?"

0 · 645 views · located in Medieval Times

a character in “Betrothed”, as played by Zoey26123

Description

"Court is horrible. Arranged marriages are almost as bad as it doesn't allow you to know if they are your true love."

Image


Name: Isabella

Age: 15

Appearance:
ImageIsabella has blonde hair that goes to her shoulders. When exploring, she likes to have it half up half down to keep out of her way. When she is trying to relax or is just out and about it is usually down as she hardly cares to put it up. When she goes to court or special occasions that are required, her maid makes her put it up in a good natured way.

Personality:
Isabella is an energetic and excited soul. She can't stand sitting in the same place and is always up for a challenge. She is smart and adventurous spending most of her time riding, exploring, or reading in the library though she reads fiction rather than realistic works as they bore her usually though a few topics intrigue her. She is very good with pretending and is great when she wants to escape or deceive people as she knows various ways from experience and her readings.

ImageRank/Occupation:
Princess of France

Bio:
Isabella was born to the queen and king a year after Sebastian was born and was always getting in trouble growing up as she hated the life of frills and being demure. With that, Isabella would always be exploring passageways as a young girl, curious as to what was going on in the palace and who was in it, careful not to get caught.

When Isabella turned eight, she was to be married to a prince from another country though when the two met, that prince's father was furious. He had expected a young, demure, obedient princess that would be his connection to a source of wealth that he needed. Isabella was anything but that as she had taken the prince horse back riding and brought the themselves back covered in mud and muck, soaked after falling into a river and needing to be saved by the kings gaurs that had followed them from a distance as the young prince and princess didn't know how to swim and still don't. The prince's father left immediately with his son making Isabella's father furious.

ImageTwo years after the event with the young prince, Isabella's father gave up on marrying her away and set to make her a tool usable in court. He began having her trained in various ways to the point she could defend herself as well as deceive and trick other people easily. Isabella started going to court when she turned twelve and was rather unhappy about it, failing her first task terribly as she hated it. She now only does things that her father absolutely needs and has a good reason for. Otherwise, Isabella is found doing what she wishes as her father had given up on her being a true princess for now. He continues to look for suitors though few consider her as they heard the story of the prince and other rumors.

So begins...

Izzy runs down the hall, her annoying and pinching court shoes doing their job in being torture devices for only Izzy. She was so late to the party which was terrible considering it was her brother's engagement. Her soon to be sister-in-law's engagement. She should have come in from riding early so she didn't have to rush to get ready and get scolded the entire time, having the corset pulled too tight and her hair pins pushed in to be digging at her scalp. Slowing to a rapid walk, Izzy walks to the door to open it to the grand ballroom.

Those tight, annoying, pinching shoes were not all bad as they were her favorite color, blue. The light blue dress she wore was rather tight though it couldn't be helped because of the deal with her maid. Whenever she was late, her maid got to choose what Izzy wore and Izzy couldn't complain no matter what she chose. The blue dress had loose flowing sleeves that draped down to the length of her knees on one side. The bodice was not one Izzy was proud of as it showed too much for her liking though it hardly showed anything as the maid knew very well Izzy would just die of embarrassment. Pearls and gold trim decorated the gown that went down far enough to worry Izzy of stepping on it. The pearls and flowers pinned into her hair maid Izzy groan inwardly as every time she turned her head, she felt that she was being weighed down.

The scene was always one to be welcomed, parties weren't so bad except for the need to dance with any aristocrat that asked not allowing her to dance with the fellow she would really like to dance with. She caught sight of Sebastian and their mother as well as their father, then Elaine and her ladies in waiting including the french one, Annabelle. With a tired sigh, Izzy moves forward, skilfully dodging the men approaching for a dance by weaving through others.

Making her decision at the last possible second, Isabelle turns to go to her brother in hopes of asking him what she had missed. He knew her well enough to know why she was late and wouldn't bother with questions. Sometimes he even laughed upon seeing his little sister arrive as he though it was funny when she came in with hay on her head or dots of mud on her skirts, but only rarely as he also didn't think she should present herself like that. Izzy did consider them friends, one of her only friends as none of the servants seemed to think that she should have any considering her seemingly wild personality.

Sebastian turned his attention to Izzy. "Your late little sister." he said with a teasing voice pushing some of her hair back playfully. "Your always late, and always complaining. Maybe, you should spend some time with my Fiancee, she will straighten you out." He chuckled seeing the expression on his sisters face. "Why dont you go find someone to dance with, or come with me, to speak with Elaine?" Sebastian looked over at Elaine. "I havent spoken to her since she arrived tonight."

"Well that's a shake considering you're to wed her eventually. I'd much rather stay with you to go see your fiancée then dance with any of the boring or disgusting aristocrats in here anyways," Izzy says with a smile and a sigh as she watches carefully for any other possible dance partners that she didn't want to interact with. "Come on then, you must ask her to dance the first dance you do, or is it that you ask her to save the last dance you do to do with ech other?" Izzy asks beginning to confuse herself slightly as she wasn't quite sure.

"Whichever way it goes, you must ask her to dance," Izzy finishes as she moves to make he way through the crowd toward her soon to be sister-in-law. "Lady Elaine, what a pleasure to see you. I'm sorry I haven't been able to see you or your ladies at all since you've arrived. Lady Annabelle, it's been so long, welcome back to France," Izzy says with a smile eliciting and mile from Annabelle.

"Its wonderful to see you again Princess Isabella," Annabelle says formally.

"Must I continue to talk like this?" Isabelle asks in hopes of a response of "no".

Elaine smiled. "Its quite alright, Ive only been back for a day and a half. I wasn't expecting to see you right away." Sebastian smiled a little. "Elaine, I believe everyone is expecting a dance." Sebastian said looking at her. Elaine glanced at Annabelle before her gaze returned to his. "We dont have to dance Sebastian if you dont want to." Sebastian held out his hand gently holding Elaine's once she put hers in his, they walked to where everyone was finishing the dance, the space quickly cleared for the couple, Sebastian put his hand on her waist holding out his other allowing Elaine to place her other one in his.

Once the music started they began the Dance, it was simple nothing to extravagant, which was lucky, since Elaine wasn't the best dancer, at the end Sebastian dipped her back gently kissing her cheek, before lifting her back upright, the music stopped and the people started to clap. Sebastian and Elaine walked back over to where Isabella and Annabelle were standing. Elaine still seemed quite shocked, by what she assumed was a romantic gesture from Sebastian, but she wasn't sure, she looked at Annabelle for some sort of confirmation, hoping that Annabelle knew what she was thinking.

Annabelle has nearly zoned out completely, as she watched the dance with a sinking chest before forcing a smile at her lady upon the couple's return. His affectionate gesture must have been a wonderful feeling for this young ruler as she seemed somewhat shocked that he would care to be with his fiancee.

Isabelle smiles softly, reading the situation with a heavy heart herself. She knew of Annabelle, knew of her brother, knew of Elaine. She wasn't sure how the triangle would play out, but she definitely didn't want anyone hurt like she knew someone would be. "To be honest Elaine, I was the one that was really pressurizing him as it is a tradition," Isabelle explains with a nod as she reaches behind her as stealthily as she could to grab a bowl of candies that she had been eyeing.

Annabelle smiles as she nods her agreements. "I'm sorry my lady, prince, princess, please excuse me for a moment, I wish to talk with an old friend," Annabelle says as she moves her eyes to see if the server from before had come back out, alas he hadn't, but it could allow her a moment of peace. With that, Annabelle moves towards a fellow by the door before slipping out when she believed a group of people blocked the view of Isabelle, Elaine and Sebastian.

"Well lady Elaine, you must tell me, would you perhaps be doing anything tomorrow? I'm hoping to avoid going to court so the best excuse would be to be riding with you instead. Would you perhaps be up for it?" Isabelle asks with a spark in her eye as she sneaks a candy to her mouth rather unsubtly.

"I would love to go riding with you." Elaine seemed relieved to be getting away from the castle tomorrow as well. "It isn't everyday I get to go riding." the truth was, she hadn't been riding since before her father and mother passed, her father was the only one who would take her, since everyone else was to worried she would be hurt, treating her like a fragile glass doll, the convent didn't have horses, so she never got to ride there either, it was a shame since Elaine loved being around the horses and loved to ride, it was one of her favourite pass times as a child.

She took a few of the candies from the bowl behind her and discreetly slipped one into her mouth smiling at Isabella, she may be a Queen, but she bent some of the rules every once and a while, Sebastian simply shook his head at the two of them. "I will leave you two, to your misbehaving." He teased them both a little, Elaine shrugged a little at his comment. "We aren't misbehaving, we are simply enjoying a candy, or two." Sebastian smiled gently kissing her hand before leaving the two ladies. Elaine popped another candy in her mouth. "Your brother, is a very complicated person. He took little notice of me yesterday until the incident in my room, and now its like we have been in love for years."

Isabella considers the words as she takes a few candies in her hand and drops them in her mouth, allowing her manners and behavior to exit for the moment. Elaine was right, ladies needed candies even if they were royal. There was never anything wrong with sugar.

"My brother was always different. He always seemed like he wasn't sure about his social life. Growing up, girls fawned over him though one stood out. She was different, unable to actually dare hope there would be a chance. He never seemed to see her though I did. He never saw the other princesses and he never saw the girls that would make fine brides. I don't know much about my brother except that he feels he has the weight of two kingdoms on his shoulders. You're a fine queen, but he has the feelings of fear that any prince would have when he knows that he will be ruling over of only one country with many problems, but two even with you there to take half the burden. I know its difficult for you, as you probably have the same feelings, but it just seems different with Sebastian. Know it isn't your fault. Growing up, sometimes the only way he remembered I existed was when suitors came over and he dissaproved of each and every one of them. Maybe lessons and playing, but not as often as you might think," Isabella says as she plops another candy into her mouth before setting the bowl back down.

"He's protective though, he feels obligated to make sure that you're safe, but I'm sure it's more than just that," Isabella says of fly as she looks a around for Sebastian, wondering wherever brother might be.




Annabelle walks down the hall slightly, trying to regain her composure. She had had a lovely day with Elaine and all even with the circumstances, but it still hurt to know that the wedding wasn't anything to be stopped. She had needed fresh air, and the balconies provided just that. With that thought in mind, Annabelle quickly entered the ballroom again, making her way around the outskirts towards the glass doors leading out with hopes that it could make her chest less tight or her stomach less knotted.

Elaine put another candy in her mouth. "Its not that he doesn't show me little signs of affection, he does, he stayed with me last night, slept beside me, made sure I felt safe, and today kissing my cheek like that." Elaine glanced around the room before meeting Isabella's eyes again. "He's sending mixed messages, it makes my head hurt just trying to sort them all out."

Sebastian saw Annabelle escape the room and followed her, coming up behind her. "Annabelle?" Sebastian asked seeing her jump he apologized for coming up behind her. "Apologies, I didn't mean to scare you." he came up beside her glancing at her. "Is something wrong? I saw you leave, you seemed a little distressed, so I thought i'd see you were alright."

Annabelle pulls a smile from somewhere as she nods. "I'll be alright. Thank you your highness," Annabelle says curtsying lightly. She hated having to stick to manners around Sebastian. Then again, if she didn't she feared she would make a fool out of herself. Annabelle doesn't look up to him as she sits on the bench provided there. He was only being polite. He was engaged. That was it. Nothing more. "I started feeling lightheaded and slightly sick so I was hoping to get some fresh air and get away from all the people. It gets rather tight in there," Annabelle says looking for some reason whether it be good or bad.


"Don't try to decipher the messages. I've always grow up believing that you should let true love take its course. Enjoy yourself here. It is France anyway, Paris even. Let love take is course and pray that it finds you before the wedding. I'm sure at the very least you'll be friends. He's trying his best to make your stay here pleasent as he knows its difficult. He's trying so hard to love you I believe, but he's not letting it take its course either, so he's having trouble," izzy says as she smiles at her friend. "Come on, I suppose we should talk to the adults to alert them that we are here, otherwise we'll, well really I'll never hear the end of it," izzy finishes offering her arm to Elaine.

Elaine smiled at Luke, before taking Isabella's arm. "Sleep didn't come easily, but I did get to sleep. I don’t think I need anything not at this moment, we were just going to go talk to some of the others, before the Queen has a fit, your welcome to join us if you would like, though It will probably be rather boring." Elaine offered, Luke nodded a little and the three of them began to walk around, Elaine was also looking to see where Sebastian had got to, she gave up after a few minutes.

They were chatting with a Lord and his lady, when a sudden dizziness came over Elaine, she put her hand on the table they were standing beside, once her vision had cleared again she took her hand off the table and composed herself, but something still didn’t feel quite right. “Apologies, it’s a bit warm in here, I juts got a little dizzy.” She said seeing the worried glances that were being exchanged.

"Luke, go get Sebastian. He probably went to look for someone," Izzy says hoping her half brother would know where to look. "Elaine, you probably just need some fresh air but if it comes to the point you have to leave, you'll need Sebastian to escort you out to make it not seem strange or out of the ordinary," Izzy explains as she offers her arm to Elaine to take so she could assist the young queen if she needs it.


Annabelle looks up finally at Sebastian. With a quivering voice she says, "Your highness, I'm sorry by I really must know if I'm to go on like this. I remember serving you when we were younger, you were really the only kind person to me... If we weren't who we were, didn't have or titles and positions and duties, would there ever be a chance? Any chance for... For you to... To perhaps.. for us?" Annabelle holds her breath as she looks down again scared of his response but knowing if she didn't hear it, she'd never forgive herself. What she was doing was terrible. Asking the engaged prince if there would ever be a shot for the two of them to be together was ridiculous and insane yet needed if Annabelle was to be happy for her friend. She needed to hear a no from this man that she loved.

Elaine smiled reassuringly. "I'm going to be fine, I dont want to alarm anyone, especially Sebastian, the last thing we need anyone to think is that Ive been poisoned which would be the first thing that would come to many minds." Elaine looked around hoping no one else noticed. "Its just the heat." she reassured again, but Izzy didn't have a convinced look on her face, Elaine caught a servers attention and asked for a glass of water instead of wine, when the server returned bringing her water she took a sip and smiled a little. "See, Fine."


Sebastian smiled at her. "Annabelle, of coarse there would be, your a beautiful girl, that any man would be lucky to have, but I am engaged to Elaine, I dont want to hurt her anymore than I apparently am. I can see it when she looks at me. I want to love her, I do, but, love isnt a option for Kings, Queens, Princes or Princess's. We have to think with our minds not our hearts." Sebastian offered her his hand helping her stand. "If your ready, I suggest you head back, Elaine, is probably wondering where you are, and is probably searching for me." He smiled at her a little.

Izzy just nods her head. She sure hadn't thought of poison as the only thing she saw the young queen eat were the candies that she herself had eaten, and she was fine. "Alright then. Really though, going to bed claiming fatigue is never a bad excuse. I would know, I've used it so many times that it is usually just thought when I leave events," Izzy says with a smile as she nods to a passing servant in thanks as they had brought Elaine the water. "Well then, what shall we do now? We could get fresh air, I could go hide to avoid some aristocrats, or we can try talking to my mother and father whom I'll just hear criticism from. It's your party after all, maybe you should go meet some of the others here," Izzy offers as if just realizing that was an option.

Annabelle's heart rose slightly before crashing down. Sure she was happy that she could now at least satisfy the curiosity, but knowing that this man she loved would never be able to be with her. Annabelle hides her sorrow with a smile she had always practiced around Sebastian. "You're right, my apologies. It's just a child's love that's stayed longer than most," Annabelle says calmly, her tone soft and holding something even she couldn't identify. Disappointment? Relief? Terror? Whatever it was, it was a horrible feeling that only made her wish she could just go. Leave the castle, stop doing her work, her family didn't need the money anymore. But she couldn't, and she knew that. She was a gift, a present, almost like she was owned by the king before being given to Elaine. Only now was she bitter, but she realized the thoughts and felt shame inside. "It is rather chilly out here anyway," Annabelle says as she looks to the doors but doesn't move quite yet, hoping to stretch out the moment she was with him even just a little longer. She would follow him in as to enter before him seemed rude in some way to the royal family.

There was a clatter of hooves outside the hall. "Shoot, shoot, shoot. I'm late" Guinevere said as she dismounted. She had traveled from Ireland, hoping to be in time for the party. She was late, as the horse she had been riding had gone lame. She dismounted, her forest green travelling dress swirling around her. As she started walking into the hall she pinned up her hair and dusted of her skirt. Luckily it had not been muddy or dusty. She could hear the sounds of people ahead. Her heart stared pounding, she had never liked big crowds or meeting new people. "At least my dress is relatively nice". The doors were up ahead. She took a deep breath and plunged in.

Immediately there were bodies and noise pressing in. Guinevere took a deep breath and looked around for Elaine. Not seeing her she went farther into the room. She was about to despair when she caught a glimpse of a royal blue gown. "Elaine!" she yelled, then turned to study the ground as eyes turned to her. Guinevere lifted her skirts and hurried towards the gown. "Elaine!" she called again, then she halted, noticing Isabella "Oh, sorry Princess Isabella". She turned to leave and give them time to talk.

"Guinevere." Elaine said almost sternly, before she left. "That gown is for traveling not for feasts. Go change, and quickly, before the Queen sees you." Elaine watched her walk away before turning back to Isabella with a sigh. "She was delayed getting her, Family things to attend to, I was expecting her this morning, she was late." She sighed uncomfortably looking around the crowd. "We might as well continuing socializing with the Lords and Ladies, I would prefer to avoid your parents." She said before they moved to a different group of people.

"Oh no," Izzy whispers before looking for Sebastian once as she saw the blood seeping from Guinevere's throat. "Lady Elaine, please do me the favor of getting her some water while I take care of that," Izzy says gently as she reaches to her sleeve. Her maid would be mad, her mother furious. Father wouldn't care as he would have expected it, and Sebastian would probably be happy with her or proud. With those thoughts racing through her mind, Isabella grasps her sleeve and rips it off, the long and delicate fabric coming off easily. "Lady Guinevere, calm down, you must, if you don't it will continue to bleed. Come here and be calm or else you'll make a scene that nobody needs to see, Lady Elaine must show that these attempts towards her don't bother her if she is to stay alive,"Isabella said knowing the words would catch the girl and drag her out of the daze. With that, Isabella moves to wrap the young lady's throat gently to staunch the flow of blood while not choking her. Isabella had wrapped plenty of wounds before because of her adventuring, so it wasn't a difficult wrapping, though it was a different and sightly dangerous one.

Guinevere flinched away from Isabelle before noticing who it was. She relaxed somewhat, still clinging onto Elaine. "It just hurts" she whispered, her voice little more than a whisper. "Catching whoever did it will be easy though, he or she will have nail marks" she said, holding out her bloodied nails to show Isabella. She leaned into Elaine, welcoming her presence. Hissing out a breath she lifted her hand to her throat, then pulled it away. Then she looked down at the dress, the whole bodice had been stained crimson with blood. Looking around she noticed Sebastian approaching. Turning her body, as to not aggravate her neck she glanced around, taking in the stares at her and her gown. "Now what?" she asked, her voice slightly stronger. "I don't think that I'm going to be in commission for a while, but I really don't want to walk to my room, I feel a bit dizzy."

Elaine looked down at her dress it had been covered in her friends blood, along with her hands, tears filled her eyes as her gaze met that of Sebastian's and then Luke's who was standing beside his brother. "Gwen, you must lie down." Elaine helped her friend lay down on the floor fear was now showing in Gwen's eyes, Elaine gently covered the wound to stop the bleeding. "You going to be okay." She whispered, Isabella was now kneeling beside her, Elaine looked at her the tears escaping her eyes, an image of her mother flashed before Elaine's eyes, she had found her mother in her room, her throat slit, she was on the ground, lifeless, where as her fathers body was by the bed, all of the memories that she locked away were coming back making her more upset, she tried to stop herself from crying anymore reminding herself that she had to lock her emotions away, she looked at Gwen again she was wearing on of Elaine's dresses, Elaine fell back covering her mouth with the back of her hand, Isabella looked at her after taking her place putting her hands on Gwens neck. "She's wearing my dress..." Elaine said. "She was mistaken for me, Gwen wasn't the target I was." She felt sebastian kneel beside her, she leaned against him burying her head in his shoulder crying, Sebastian looked at Luke. "We need to find out who did this." He whispered to his brother gently rubbing Elaine's back looking at his sister who was now tending to Guinevere. "As quickly as possible." He added.

"Sebastian, think you can carry her to her room? As long as Elaine is with one of us she should be fine," Isabella observes as she rips the other sleeve away, tossing the old blood filled one to the side. A small crowd had gathered and shrieks and cries could be heard as others saw the blood. Annabelle made her way through the cord and knelt in the space closest between Sebastian and Luke. "Guinevere," she whispers in her shock and surprise.

"She needs Jason," Isabella explains as the blood doesn't stop. If it didn't stop soon the girl would bleed out. "Here," his voice rings out as he kneels down beside Isabella getting to work. "A servant saw the lady in the hall and came straight to me," Jason, the young physician, says.

Izzy looks up to Sebastian, then Elaine. "She needs to go to her room. Get out of those clothes and get some air. Jason and I will care for the lady. Annabelle can assist Elaine," Isabella claims as she moves to taste the blood soaked rag aside as Jason starts to work.

Sebastian gently kissed the top of Elaine's head, she was unable to stand, but she refused to let Sebastian pick her up. "I'm not leaving her, she wouldn't leave me." She argued, Sebastian sighed and continued to sit with her, the whispers continuing to spread through the room, guards had secured the room to stop anyone from getting in. Elaine slowly turned her head to look at Gwen again, the blood was still flowing, and it made Elaine cringe, but she still crawled away from Sebastian coming up on the other side of Isabella taking Gwens hand in her own. "I'm so sorry Gwen." She whispered, she never thought she would ever hurt that much, not after her parents died. "My mother died the same way." Elaine said to Isabella. "You cant let her die, I wont be able to take it." She looked Isabella in the eyes. "You have to save her..." Elaine knew she was a mess, and she knew that it would have been wise just to have let Sebastian carry her to her room, she felt faint, probably from all of the crying, she felt herself start to loose it again. "You have to save her." She repeated before putting her head on her knees beginning to sob again, but she didn't let go of Gwen's hand.

Gwen looked up at Elaine, she seemed to be on the verge of fainting, yet still tried to comfort Elaine. "Hey, its okay, I dealt some damage to whoever did this "Make sure they pay, okay?" she said. Relaxing a bit she felt like everything was happening to her through a veil. She wanted to get up and move but she couldn't. Around her Isabella and Jason were working on her, and she could feel their concern. By rolling her eyes she could glimpse Sebastian, Luke and Annabelle. They were all looking her worriedly. Looking from that angle made her eyes hurt so she looked ahead again. She didn't want to be moved, she felt so comfy. "Elaine, it feels like I'm on a cloud" she said, looking up at her near sister. "Don't be scared for me, I'm not dying" the comforting words barley seemed to come from her mouth. Now she wanted some privacy, people were looking, there were too many eyes on her. Guinevere tried to lift herself then collasped back on the ground. "I'm so tired" she whispered

"If she falls asleep she may not wake up," Jason whispers to Isabelle almost silently as some might consider it intimate though it was one of concern. Isabella nods as she looks up to Sebastian. "The ballroom needs to be cleared out. We can't move her yet and them watching won't help," Isabelle says before turning her attention back to Gwen. "Hey, I'm tired too but I can't go to sleep. I need you to keep me awake, that's an order. Talk to me, tell me why you had on a muddy dress earlier like I usually do," Isabella smiles to the girl as she rips cloth for Jason. A wound to the neck was serious and Izzy only knew what to do thanks to her readings.

"Annabelle, get Elaine to safety, you know the routes. Elaine, you need to trust me, if you're killed by someone here, now, then Gwen would not get better, worse in fact. You must get away," Izzy says. Annabelle nods as she goes to Elaine. "My lady, Elaine, we must go. There are too many people here the man could be here," Annabelle reasons, lifting her lady's face to make she contact. "There's nothing we can do here and Princess Isabella is here as is Prince Sebastian, they won't let anything had happen to Gwen, you know this. We must go," she says as she tries to help the girl stand.

Sebastian Goes to Elaine's side taking Annabelle's place. "I have her." He gently scooped Elaine up in his arms knowing that she would be unable to walk, He held her tightly to be sure he didn't drop her, instructing the guards to clear the room, he looked at his Brother and Annabelle. "You two come with me." He looked at his sister, Elaine had already passed out in his arms. "She wont leave the castle you know that Isabella, We will keep her in her room, I will stay with her, Annabelle will stay with her and so will Luke, she will be safe. Make sure Guinevere is to." He signalled for three guards to come over. "Take the rest of her Ladies in waiting to a safe house of some sort." He sent them off looking at his sister again before walking out of the room. He laid Elaine on her bed when they got into her room, he reluctantly woke her so Annabelle could help her change out of her bloodied dress. She returned in a clean white nightgown, her hair down and the blood washed away, but the redness in her face still remained, she sat on the edge of her bed, Sebastian sitting on one side of her and Annabelle on the other, Luke sat in a chair across from them, the memories of her past made their way back into the present where they began to haunt her again. "My mother..." She murmured but didn't finish the sentence, Sebastian gave Annabelle a worried glance before moving some of Elaine's hair from her face. "Your mother is watching over you. She is probably right in this room telling you that your going to be okay." Sebastian tried to comfort her but it seemed to have no affect, she was in such a traumatized state, she was in so much pain he knew know one would be able to heal. "Annabelle." Elaine whispered. "I want who ever did this executed." her voice was almost cold. "I want it done, as soon as he is found."

Guinevere turned her head. She watched Elaine leave then looked back to Izzy. "Riding, I love it" she smiled thinking of the horses. "I would love one" she looked at looked at Isabelle. "How bad does my throat look?" she looked at Isabelle, the hyperness fading, slowly. "Who's Jason?" she said looking at the young man beside her. Turning she saw the people slowly filing out the room. "I just ruined Elaine's party." she noted. She wriggled her toes and her fingers. "I feel better" she noted. She began to try and stand but was pushed back down by Isabella. She smiled "Am I tiring you yet?" Then all of a sudden blackness swamped her. "Darknes-..." she struggled against it and managed to push it back a bit. "I don't feel good" she whispered looking at Isabelle with big eyes.

"Princess, get the medicines," Jason commands as he finally manages to stop the bleeding. Isabella nods, not taking her eyes from Gwen. "I love riding as well and Jason is a close friend of mine. Elaine won't be mad at all. I'm rather pleased it's over and no, I am not tiring. I know it's dark but you really must focus on my face, tell me a story. I need you to tell me a story Gwen, a fairy tale or something from your childhood, anything," Isabella commands gently as she grabs the medicines and passes it to Jason's open hand. "You really will be fine lady Gwen, but I must have you continue to talk to the princess, push past that feeling and talk to her so I can give you some medicine to keep you healthy," Jason orders, his hands working fast and expertly without pause.


Annabelle's heart skips a beat as she hears her lady's words. "Of course your majesty. If you wish, I can ask in the kitchens for anyone with the wounds that Gwen described, I can take a hidden and safe route to them so there's no risk in being caught," Annabelle offers softly as she moves to stand, trying hard to avoid Sebastian's gaze without seeming rude. She felt sick herself. Annabelle had tried to wipe as much blood from her skin as she could from Gwen and her lady's dress, but she still felt like the blood was there as it was on some of the red dress, hidden in the fabric but easily felt.
