Sebastian walked through the halls, trying to let go of the heated conversation his parents had just had, and of coarse it had to be about Elaine, his fiancée had been back at court for a few hours, and already his mother was fighting with his father about anything she could bring up.
He turned a corner sharply running into Luke, he groaned irritably looking down at his half brother.
"Isn't it a little late for you to be wandering the castle halls Luke? Someone might suspect your up to something."

Sebastian had little tolerance for his half brother, and almost everyone knew it, it took him a great deal of effort to put up with the boy for more than ten minutes, though he did care for the boy, even if it was only a little bit, he just never let it show, he rarely had time to play big brother anyways, and was never in the mood, besides with his fiancée back at court, he was sure he would have no time to spend with Luke, even if he wanted to.

"Suspect? I must be off my game" Luke said with a smile. Luke still loved Sebastian as a brother, even if he didn't love him back. "Besides, you never know what secrets you might learn. The better question is, what are you doing walking so close to your fiancee's chambers?"

Luke had a certain energy on him, practically toxic. "I think your mom finally found someone she hates more then me. And that is saying something". It was very clear Luke had the belief the Queen tried to kill him. The series of "accidents" that nearly took his life was significant, but nothing ever tied the queen to planning them. Still, the Queen obviously hated him.

"I just hope they don't start arguing about the feast they planned for your wedding tomorrow. When is that wedding happening, anyways?"

Sebastian gave his little brother an unamused look. "The wedding will happen, when Father says it will happen." In other words he didn't have an answer for his curious brother, a date hadn't been set in stone, there was an estimated date, but nothing was for certain.

Why he was walking so close to his fiancee's chambers was a totally different topic, and was a question he really didn't care to answer, he was going to see that she had settled into her room and that everything was alright, despite what everyone thought, he did have feelings for Elaine, they just weren't very strong, but they were still there, he couldn't let his little brother even suspect that though. He cleared his throat. "And, I am walking so close to my Fiancee's chambers, to see that she has settled in and that everything is fine, she is obviously going to be staying a while, I want to make sure she is comfortable." Not satisfied with his answer Sebastian added. "Though, your coming from that direction little brother, why dont you tell me how she is?"

(accidentally tagged Elaine)

"Well, the aroma of romance has filled up the rooms next to hers and the hall outside. And she is in love with you. Love love, not business love". Luke had put a bit of an emphasis on those last words. "Love can simply be love, after all".

Luke was trying to subtly hint at the prospect of love. Luke did want them to be like his parents, like his own mom and dad, and not like his dad and the queen. His only worry was that Sebastian would muck it up. Clearly Elaine wanted it.

"And besides, I hear it's a lot easier to walk down the aisle with someone that loves you". Luke somewhat suspected he was lying, but he figured if he was Luke would spot it. He usually could spot lies.

Sebastian seemed to being growing more frustrated with the situation. "Love isn't an option for Royals." He reminded his brother, and he was going to try and keep his feelings for Elaine where they were now, not very strong, barely even there. "We will be wed whether I love her or not, besides I do not have time to court a Lady that is already mine."

The conversation was cut short by a screaming from down the hall, Sebastian ran down and could hear Luke trailing behind him, he opened Elaine's door, to find her in a corner of her room holding onto Kyla, a terrified expression on both their faces, he looked around the room but couldn't find anyone there, so he returned to where Elaine and Kyla were.
"What happened?" He asked Elaine, who was still shaking.
"We were just talking." Elaine started. "When a man came out from over there." She pointed to the door way that led to where she was bathed and dressed, her room was really split into two sections, in the first was her bed and her desk, and in the second was where she was bathed and dressed in the mornings. "I dont know how he got in, but he was holding some sort of Blade, he became more hesitant seeing that I wasn't alone, and spooked when I started to scream and disappeared, the direction he came from, but my guards didn't come, you did."
"Where are your guards?" Sebastian asked her. "They were supposed to be outside your door."
"They were there, when Kyla came in" Elaine replied running a hand through her hair nervously. "I came back, and I was told I would be safe Sebastian."
"You are." He replied. "Your guards will be dealt with, where are the rest of your ladies?"
"In their chambers."
"Alright, its going to be okay." Sebastian said in a more soothing tone than he would commonly use.

Luke was quick to react, following Sebastian into the room. He was quick to analyze the situation, keeping all the facts together. "So, he was already in here then? Did you go into that room before he emerged? As for the guards, there are very few people who could get them to move, unless they were paid enough and not as loyal. Without payment, the captain of the guard, a knight, the king and queen, Sebastian, and maybe myself can get them to move. It would depend on the guard. Anyways, the man could only get in three....two, ways. The door and the window. One floor down, there is a balcony with curtains strong enough to climb up. It takes a bit of scaling, but it's definently climbable. Then through the door. Now, either he hid himself before the guards arrived, or the guards let him in"

He couldn't help but notice what type of weapon was used though. A blade. "Are you sure he ran away from that? A man sent to kill normally is not concerned with a second victim. Not unless he thought the guards were still outside, and would catch him. So, either he is a novice assassin, or he was sent simply to scare you. Fear moves people faster then bodies. It would explain why he ran. He was sent to threaten you, but simple threats do not work if multiple people are in the room".

Luke looked towards his brother. "Perhaps you may want to get her new guards. Guards you can trust. Maybe use some of the ones I can trust. They don't get bought so easily".

Elaine looked at the young boy; he was very smart, very observant for a 11 year old, an 11 year old be she recognized as Luke, Sebastian’s half brother.. "No one was in my room when I came in." She replied putting a hand on her head, it was pounding with a headache caused probably by the mixture of stress, crying, and being scared to death by a man she didn't know, in her room, late at night. "No one, other than myself and my maids, had been in my room before I came in tonight, and Kyla came about an hour or so ago, she obviously wasn’t expected to be here." Elaine thought about her guards, if her guards were gone her ladies guards would have been gone as well, they would have come running after hearing her scream and they didn’t. “I don’t think my guards were bribed to leave. Whoever wanted to scare me, had to of been from a high place, otherwise he would have had to bribe all of my ladies guards as well. They should have come running when I screamed, but they didn’t, which means they must have left as well.”

Sebastian looked at his brother. “I know her guards personally, they were mine, they wouldn’t have left that door unless ordered, and if someone did try to bribe them to leave, one of them would have come to me, or to the King.” Sebastian glanced around the room. “We will get new guards for you and your ladies, until your current ones have been questioned and this has been sorted out.” He turned to leave the room waving his hand signaling for Luke to follow.

“Wait.” Elaine said grabbing his hand. “Stay, please.”
Sebastian turned to face her put a hand on her face and wiped the tears away with his thumb, he sighed. “I have to go, alert my parents, and have more guards sent. I promise to come back though alright?” Sebastian hated how scared she now was, if the task was to scare her, it obviously had worked. “Luke will stay though, he has a way of getting peoples minds off things.” He ran his hand down her hair. “It’s going to be alright.” He said before leaving the room.

Elaine looked at Kyla and then at Luke, she sat on her bed letting Kyla sit beside her, she looked at Luke. “I don’t see why he is so concerned, he doesn’t care about me. At least that’s the message I’ve gotten from him so far.”

"If that is true, then the guards should be spoken to. Asked on who they got the order from..." Luke hated what he was about to say next, because while possible, allowed plausible deniability. "And if it was direct or by messenger. If they were given the order directly, we know exactly who it was. But if a messenger was used, this messenger could have lied to them, making the suspect pool bigger".

The fact it was Sebastian's guards didn't comfort him, actually. Many of them would recognize the queen's authority over him, and his prime suspect was the queen. Though, in all truth, he was a bit shocked it was so direct, and not staged as an accident or what not. Of course, if it was only to scare her, then the directness made total sense, further strengthening he was sent to scare and not kill. He was about to follow Sebastian when he was told to stay with them. He nodded, and say next to Elaine on the other side. He had to choose his words carefully, but he also did not want to deceive her, which was strange considering he deceives others perfectly fine.

In truth, Luke could see Sebastian was not acting himself. It was only a faint sense, but it was there. But then again, this was the person Sebastian was supposed to marry. It could be an act. Hmmm, that gives me an idea. He then refocused on Elaine, however. "'Those who truly live in this world will always make allies and enemies'. You will be fine Elaine. You cannot walk in this world without making enemies, because we are all different and there will be people who agree and disagree".

When Elaine spoke of his brother, Luke found it difficult to explain, but he did his best. "He cares about you. The problem is how he cares. Sebastian was born from a relationship of business and diplomacy. He sees that bond in his parents, who I read are supposed to be our role models. It's not that his parents didn't love him, it's that they did not love each other. However, my mother and father do love each other. They did when I was conceived, and they still do. It's why we are so different to others. In truth, our one difference is the relationship of our father to our mother. Sebastian does care about you, he just doesn't care in the right way. Do you understand that?"

He looked around the room, then out the window. "It's the reason behind the rumor that I am his favorite son. The King knows a relationship of business, and a relationship of love. And if he had to choose, I believe he would choose love. It's why the queen hates me so much..."

Luke clambered when he mentioned the queen. Before either of them had a chance to ask him about her, he quickly turned to Elaine and spoke. "Sebastian doesn't know what that bond of love feels like. But that does not mean he cannot be taught it". He knew if they started asking about the queen, he would be obliged to say his suspicions. But if he did that now, he was afraid she would be scared away. He needed to get them to love each other. Luke felt somewhat rotten for the reasons he was thinking though. A few were selfish. He figured if they got married, his father might let them rule, denying the queen power. Additionally, if Sebastian could learn to love Elaine not out of business but heart, maybe he might warm up to Luke more as well. He did want to see their happily ever after, but he had his own reasons as well. The most rotten possibly being that while Elaine is around, the Queen's gaze would be off him.

"After all, everyone is capable of love" he pointed out, hoping that this conversation convinced her to stay. For his sake, for Elaine's, and for Sebastian's.

After Sebastian sent the new guards, he instructed a messenger to get his mother, he defiantly wasn’t going to disturb his father since he knew exactly what he was doing; but he knew his mother wouldn’t mind, simply because it was him, her pride and joy. His mother came more concerned that something had happened to him, he was quick to put her fears to rest.
“Elaine however, is not alright.” Sebastian said, his mother’s mood seemed to shift at the mention of her name. “She was in her Chamber, and a man came in with a blade, he ran off when she started to scream, but none of the guards came to her aid, none of them were there when I got there. I still haven’t located them, but Elaine was fairly startled. Someone had to have ordered them to leave, someone rather high ranked.” Sebastian had his family crossed off the list, he knew none of them would ever try to harm his fiancée, his father was pleased with the alliance and had all intentions to have them married, his mother had ignored her as a child, and took no notice of her, Luke seemed to have taken a liking to her; he was, however, concerned that someone was trying to get a message across, and it wouldn’t be the last scare Elaine would receive. “I’m going to stay with her the night, just incase anyone comes back, and to make her feel a little more at ease, her nerves on a little on edge, but I’m sure they will settle by morning.”

His mother promised him she would do anything she could to find who orchestrated it, and that she wanted Elaine to feel safe since she would be staying, then sent him on his way, saying a kind goodnight.

Elaine waited impatiently for Sebastian to return, when he did, he dismissed his half brother telling him to get to bed, before walking over to Elaine taking one of her hands. "You need to get sleep Elaine." She averted her gaze from his.
"Why are you even bothering Sebastian? This engagement is a simple Diplomatic matter to you, and I'm just another piece." she looked back up at him seeing the expression on his face change. "I am bothering because you are my friend." Elaine laughed a little. "So thats what we are now? Friends." Sebastian shrugged as they sat down. "Its a good place to start. Besides, you have always been my friend, nothing has changed in that prospect from when we were younger, we are just older now. I am concerned about you, if anything happened to you, I would blame myself."

After a long conversation, Elaine drifted to sleep, when she woke, Sebastian was gone, but she knew he had stayed the night since the other side of her bed was a mess, she ran her fingers through her hair, before getting out of her bed, her Ladies came in a few minutes after, to see that she was prepared, and looking descent for the day, it was nothing compared to what was to come that night, Elaine knew it would take at least an hour and a half for all of them to be ready for the event, but for now, she was dressed in one of her simple but Elegant dresses with her hair left down. She went to Annabelle and brushed some stray pieces of hair back into place before smiling. "You look beautiful Annabelle, all of you do."

(Zoey26123- you can make the Princess, Sebastians sister :P, sorry, I havent figured out PM's yet.)

Elaine nodded. "We wouldn't want to be late." The made their way through the halls, to the ballroom where the feast was being held, everyone was already there, Elaine was amazed by all of the people, giving the fact it was a simple feast, celebrating her Engagement, nothing to important or so she thought. "Sebastian." Elaine smiled when he walked over. "Elaine, Lady Annabelle." he acknowledged those two before greeting the other ladies. "Are you enjoying yourself." Elaine looked around. "We just arrived actually, everything seems very enjoyable though. I just wasn't expecting so many people, I thought it was going to be a small celebration." Sebastian chuckled. "A Royal engagement is no small celebration." He smiled at them. "As my Father would say, its a way of proving a point." Elaine raised her eyebrows. "And what point is her trying to prove?" Sebastian shrugged. "Any point he can. You know how he is..." He trailed off seeing his mother signal for him to come over. "Excuse me." He politely excused himself.

Elaine and Annabelle made their way over to a small selection of the food, Elaine took Annabelle's advice. "Everything is very good, I wish I could eat more; but small samples is the way to go, as you said." Elaine looked at Annabelle laughing a little. "I'm worried to see what the wedding is going to be like, if the engagement Celebration is this busy."

Annabelle couldn't help but have her heart flutter as the prince walked over, then away. Upon them moving to the table of food that had been wonderfully prepared, Annabelle dared to think that she might see someone she knew. "It will be beautiful. The after party however will be much grander than this. It truly is beautiful," Annabelle says softly as she reached for her favorite dish toget a sample. It was as she remembered it. Sweet like candy yet something about it made the great more than just a sweet.

"Food will be more plentiful, decorations will be extravagant. Candles will be hung and music will be played by the best of musicians," Annabelle says fantasizing the scene already in her mind. Annabelle noticed on of the servers coming to place a fresh plate of food on the table and smiled broadly at the sight of him. She would definitly need to seek him out later to say hello.

"With the thoughts if the grand event in mind, why don't you a attempt a dance my lady? I'm sure you'll be able to do the steps I taught you," Annabelle says as she cranes her neck looking for Luke or even Sebastian to get for Lady Elaine to try her first dance with. An easy partner that would be gentle and wouldn't criticize or gossip is something all ladies need and the two chivalrous young men were that exact type.

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.

"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."
