Description

Image
Name:
Anais Freya Beauchene


Nicknames:
Anna, Ann, Annie, Naya, Freya (Only by those deemed extremely close to her), Little One, Stinger


Age:
20


Position:
Suitor #2 from The Linion Sector


Sexuality:
Heterosexual
Done enough experimenting in my life to know that straight is the only way I wanna go.


Appearance:
Anais is a very beautiful, vivacious young woman in a tiny package. She stands at 5'2, a diminutive little thing that weighs about 108 lbs. Her slim, petite figure is only enhanced by natural curves she was blessed with from her mother's side of the family. Her skin is a clear and smooth olive shade, a complexion that tans very easily though she tends to stay in the middle with a nice equilibrium of light and brown skin. The combination is fitting to her almond-shaped hazel eyes, which can appear bigger due to her different facial expressions. Her green-brown eyes sit beneath expressive eyebrows on a baby face with high cheekbones, a small nose, and soft full lips. Anais is a brunette; medium-length hair cascades down her back in natural waves, not too long and not too short. It's the perfect combination for her facial structure. Naya also has a belly button piercing and a tattoo on her lower back. It is of a small black scorpion with its stinger hitting just at the base of her spine. It is Anais' symbol.


Clothing Style:
Despite her fun personality, Anais is known for wearing classy and mature outfits compromised of jeans or slacks with a stylish top and possibly a jacket or sweater. She has a love for dresses and an even bigger love for boots. She pretty much has a collection of them. She favors dangling earrings and long necklaces or even layering her jewelry. She dislikes the use of makeup and only uses it if it is mandatory or it is a special event.

Skills
Event Planning It's pretty much my calling|| Acting|| Dancing My number one passion|| Linguistics I speak French, Arabic, Tamasheq, and a little German|| Tennis A favorite passtime of mine and a great way to vent. I competed as a child|| The Smack of Death Yeah, apparently I am a really good slapper. Beware the hand.


Fears
  • Dark, enclosed spaces A girl like me should not be confined...no, seriously.
  • Clowns
  • Rejection
  • Her mother's wrath If you think my slaps are anything...

Secrets:
  • Depression -- After her parents' divorce, Naya suffered from a long period of depression. She felt like she needed to overcompensate for her mother's desire for perfection and that in turn, made the usually high-spirited girl deeply sad. She started going to parties more and more and before long, took to cutting her wrists. Naturally, her mother has gotten her help for it and Naya has taken to wearing bracelets to hide the faded scars on her wrists. Every now and then, especially when she's feeling very low, she runs her fingertips over them as a reminder of a time when she was weak.
  • Love for older men -- While Naya does flirt with guys her age and would be perfectly fine with marrying one her age, she has always loved men that were at least five or more years older than herself. It is horrible and she can probably get a man sent to jail. However, their maturity level compared to that of the guys her age is refreshing and older men just know how to treat a woman. She dated one of her mother's workers, but the older woman does not know this and for that, Naya is eternally grateful to those who have kept their mouths shut.
  • A sharp knife of a short life -- There was a reason for Naya getting the Scorpio tattoo. Sure, she chalks it up to being a Scorpio and that messing with a scorpion is like playing with fire; dangerous, but it lures you in. She even flirts and says that she got it because like a scorpion, she can paralyze you. The truth is that a scorpion does drastic things when it is in trouble and that mirrors her own need to cut herself. When in trouble like a traumatic event or situation, a Scorpion will sting itself to death. However, that is far too depressing to come from Naya's mouth, so she gives you the half-truth.


Allies:
  • Prince Richard I am planning his death as we speak.

Enemies:
(Can add or edit later)


Love Interest:
  • Richard Santini I guess...it's not like the asshole isn't attractive...
  • FC: Chris Hemsworth -- They haven't met yet, but Anais likes an older guy and he is definitely sexy.

Personality:
{Vivacious, Sassy, Insecure, Compulsive, Fierce, Perfectionist}
Friends of this little thing will tell you to beware; big things come in very small packages. Despite her appearance, Naya is one little firecracker that should not be underestimated. Why? Because she is a leader and leaders hold a lot of power no matter what their positions in life really are. To some, Anais may seem controlling or beyond driven. Some have even claimed that she suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, which actually isn't the case. There is nothing wrong with wanting nothing but perfection and that is exactly what Naya desires. When she plans something - and trust that there will be a lot of things Naya will be begging to plan - everything has their place and everything will go according to plan. Now, she won't have some epic meltdown because things don't go her way. She is almost twenty-one years old, not five. However, it is important to note that Naya likes things done with precision and with a finese only she has learned to master.

Also, it is safe to note that Naya grew up in a household where perfection was God and it was to be worshipped above all things. On a safer note, Anais is definitely a character that one will not forget easily. She is usually in high spirits and has a fire about her that burns brightly. Her laughter is infectious and she is almost always up for fun or an adventure. It is almost as if she can command others with just walking into a room. Though cultured and given a serious upbringing by her mother, Naya has habits of saying whatever pops into her mind first and most of the time, does not regret it. Honesty is a trait in humans that everyone should have and if you are to punish her for having such a trait, then she will question you on moral grounds. However, she is not always uppity. There are times when Anais would like to hang out and just exist instead of always being on the move. If she were away from her mother and the woman's overbearing tendencies, Anais would love to sleep late and just be with friends. She likes friends and is fiercely loyal to those she cares about.

What most people fail to realize is that behind the confident, sexy and fun young woman she portrays is a young girl with her own demons. Anais still hasn't gotten over her parents' divorce and her father's disappearance from her life. Sure, he calls, but there is a huge difference between hearing a man's voice and seeing the only man she's truly ever loved. He doesn't even like to Skype with her anymore. And it hurts. She has deep issues with her work and with herself, always deeming the things she does not good enough and finding the smallest of flaws within herself or her work. Friends, family, and past boyfriends have tried to make her see reason, but Naya will not back down from her position. However, as long as she smiles, no one sees the tears...


History
Anais Freya Beauchene is the only daughter of Lanie and Raphael Beauchene, the former being a former French model and coming from a family of servants to the royal family. Her father is an astounding chef. Anais spent the majority of her childhood rather normally...or as normally as one with wealth and status could. Her mother had her throwing tea parties every Wednesday with elite girls, including the Princess whenever the girl could come, playing tennis, attending all the dance classes she could, and having her homeschooled until she was around ten just to ensure that Anais recieved the best, perfectly tailored education she could. Would Anais complain about that? No. She learned how to speak two languages by the time she was eight and could have been competing for the rest of her life in tennis if she chose to. However, she was more than happy when she was allowed into a private school.

There, Anais flourished and became the woman that she is today. In school, Anais excelled. She didn't have the outstanding 5.0 GPA that Richard Santini could brag about, but her 3.9 was enough to appease her mother and allow her to do all that she wanted. She was one of the best - if not - the best modern dancer in the school, a natural talent in the theater department, the captain of the girls' tennis team, and was the class president both her junior and senior year. She planned parties, social gatherings, and was organized a lot of the theater events when allowed. While doing all of that, Anais continued with private dance lessons and extra classes outside of school due to her mother's ambitions for her to be a top student. She graduated at the tender age of sixteen, surprising even herself with that accomplishment. This is where she and her mother had one of their first and most intense battle. Lanie decided years ago that Anais would attend the University of Cambridge in England. It was one of the top schools in the world. However, Anais wanted to and chose to go to Spelman College, the leading HBCU in the country. It was her father's grandmother's alma mater. This decision was made during the time of the divorce talks and further drove her feuding parents apart. It was also the first time her mother ever hit her.

Nonetheless, Anais refused to allow her mother's negative energy to change her mind. Even with her depression and her bouts of insecurities, Anais pulled through. She came into Spelman with enough of the prerequisites that she could simply focus on her double major in both dance and business management. She joined the tennis team and Mahogany In Motion, the dance team affiliated with the Morehouse drum band. After dancing with them for her first two years, in the spring of her second year - which turned out to be her junior year, Anais became a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority on campus. During senior year, she became the chapter's treasurer and served that out for the rest of the year. Graduating at nineteen, Anais returned home and began teaching dance lessons to young girls and trying to decide what to do with her degree. Becoming a suitor wasn't exactly on her agenda and the possibility of marrying Richard is definiely not one that she wants to see through, but now that she has her Masters after graduating only two years ago, why not go to court and see what happens? Who knows? If she plays the right card, she might find what she's looking for.


Theme Song
Beautiful Disaster|| Jon McLaughlin
She loves her momma's lemonade
Hates the sounds that goodbyes make
She prays one day she'll find someone to need her
She swears that there's no difference between the lies and compliments
It's all the same if everybody leaves her

And every magazine tells her she's not good enough
The pictures that she sees makes her cry

She would change everything, everything, just ask her
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home

She's giving boys what they want
Tries to act so nonchalant
Afraid to see that she's lost her direction
She never stays the same for long
Assuming that she'll get it wrong
Perfect only in her imperfection

She's not a drama queen
She doesn't wanna feel this way
Only 17 and tired, yeah

She would change everything for happy ever after
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home

She's just the way she is
But no one's told her that's OK

She would change everything, everything, just ask her
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster

She would change everything for happy ever after
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster
She just needs someone to take her home
She just needs someone to take her home

So begins...

The Arrival of the Suitors

A women stood before the suitors, who had just arrived at the castle, and the cousin of the prince and pincess, who also just arrived,"Before we begin I thought I'd start with a quick tour of the castle, oh my where are my manners I am Lady Tavern. I am in charge of assuring the suitors are comfortable and in order. First here is where the suitors and the prince and princess eat everyday. It's the white eating room.Now this is the one and only time you will be allowed in the royal wing without an invitation. Next we will go to the left side of the wing, which is for the prince and princess and their guest. Here are their private sitting room",She spun around and clasped her hands. "Now for a real treat you get to see the prince and princess's rooms." She opened one door,[/i] "Here is the Prince's." [/i]Then she bought then down the hall and took a right at the end of the hall sat a door, square in the middle of the small wall. She opened the door revealing a room completely of windows aside from the wall with the door. "This is the Princess's." 

She shoo'd them out before taking them out of the wing across the bridge and back to their wing. Where they learned they all have the same room the furniture just different  decor, including the things they brought from home. Leaving the suitors to their rooms which the staff was frantically unpacking things to she brought the cousin of the prince and princess to his room. She then went to the cousins room to check in on her. Though she had already been living there fo two yeas so she already knew the rules and such. She was also the only person allowed in the royal wing without any invitation. The lady's in waiting had presumably already settled in their rooms so she wasn't too worried for them.


three months later

Anais was up early today. She awoke at exactly 5:30 AM and got some coffee to get her started. Today was the mid summer's gala event and she had yet to pick out an outfit. So, when she went to bed last night, she set an alarm and went to sleep almost immediately. After drinking at least half of her cup, Anais set to work with rummaging through all of her clothes. While the majority of her outfits were name brand, Anais decided to represent one of her up-and-coming designer friends and sport around the girl's latest dress. It was the second copy of the dress and paired with the right jewelry, it would fit today's festivities perfectly. Anais had already planned the perfect gown for tonight.

The other half of the coffee quaffed, Anais hopped into the shower and bathed for a good half an hour, using her newest body soap. It held a hint of cinnamon and was an earthy yet comforting scent that would last throughout the day. With a soaked yet clean body and teeth brushed, Anais came back and got dressed. She wasn't quite ready to put on jewelry yet, so Anais settled with dealing with her hair. Despite it still being a tie between long and short, her hair was actually quite difficult to manage sometimes. The natural curls seemed to love to tangle together all the time and despite the ease in which she appears with her hair, being in the process of styling was no laughing matter or one to take lightly. It took her a minute, but after a good twist and finding the right barette to match her jewelry, Anais' hair was styled into an elegant chignon with delicate and perfectly coiled strands framing her beautiful face.

Satisfied, she slid into a pair of pumps. Anais grinned at her reflection in the mirror, offering herself a quick wink. Ain't no shame in looking this good, she thought before chuckling at her own antics. She clipped on her earrings and necklace and decided against putting on real makeup. She didn't need foundation or concealer, so she settled for simple mascara and a baby-pink lip gloss that caused her lips to shine delicately under the sun's rays. With a spritz of a perfume that matched her body wash, Anais gave herself one final glance over before leaving her bedroom.

As she walked out, she noticed one of the blonde suitors, Katherine. While she and Katherine weren't close, she thought they were at least cordial. From what Anais gathered, Katherine was no more attracted to the prince than she was. No lies, her brain told her, causing Anais to chuckle. She smiled brightly at Katherine, flashing white teeth.

"Good morning, Katherine," Anais exclaimed. She approached the blonde with ease, inwardly admiring the dress. It was definitely something pretty. "Are you ready for today? We have to go out and impress the masses. The first ounce of excitement since we've been here, huh?"

What was the first thing Richard Antonio Santini did when he awoke in the morning, you might ask? Well, that depends. On some mornings, he might have actually had some random person over that night, preferably someone not that important. Like that chambermaid a few weeks ago. She had the most delicious set of boobs... And then there were other mornings where he might not even have made it home the night before because he was too twisted to even consider getting home. But then, every now and then, there were mornings where all he needed was a good two or three glasses of scotch to get through the day and a good book.

This was one of those days.

When his clock and Anais text him earlier at around seven in the morning to get up, Rick didn't even think about turning over and ignoring them. He politely got up, showered, put on some briefs and a robe, and perched himself on his sofa with a glass of scotch with ice, the bottle on the side, and an older read. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky. It was an interesting read, one that Richard grew enamored with back in freshman year of high school. As he was just flipping the next page, he heard some small commotion outside and glanced over his shoulder through the glass window. His eyes took in the sun's warmth before lowering to the ground where servants and the like were running around trying to get everything situated. He could see the polo team practicing and tents were being set up.

Smirking as one woman nearly tripped on her own two feet while carrying three of the many platters of desserts, Rick raised the glass of the smooth amber liquid and downed the rest in one gulp, letting the cool liquid slide down his throat with barely a hint of a burn. Quite bored and yet not wanting to watch television, he decided to get dressed. Just as he clipped on his watch, a thought struck him. Rick picked up his phone and sent his sister a quick text. Hope ur not nearly as bored as me. -- Rick

Not particularly wanting to go outside yet and not wanting to stay in his room, Rick opted to take a quick walk around his wing. Perhaps he would see his right hand or protector. Those two might be able to entertain him.

Katherine pondered greeting Adam but considered the fact that he could still be sleeping or getting ready so she decided against it but she was brought from her thoughts when she heard a greeting from a familiar voice. She smiled brightly at Anais and walked alongside her. "Good morning to you as well Anais." she reciprocated the greeting before replying back to the rest of what she had said and taking in her outfit. "You look very nice today Anais and I agree it will be much more exciting than what's transpired in the last three months though I have to admit I'm a bit nervous." she stated honestly.

This had been the first time she had experienced such events all in one day so it was a whirlwind of emotions some of them being excitement and nervousness like she said along with a bit of anxiety but she decided to not dwell on such emotions as it would bring her down and people may be able to see through that. If she learned anything from her Mother was that in Historia especially in the royal court if you show fear or weakness they'll see through it and use it against it. Same rule applied anywhere else so she'd put on a smile and greet people kindly. Display the manners she was taught at a young age and use her intelligence to her advantage though having Anais around seemed a bit better. They may not have been friends but they had some common ground and got along pretty well.

The sounds of the upcoming gala distracted Xavier as he was busy doing his daily routine which consisted of sleeping then breakfast then reading and finally working out which is what he is currently doing. He dropped the weights on the ground and headed over to the window, he opened an inch of the curtain to peek through and saw that everything was nearly prepared and what was left was the guests.
He decided to dress up now and so he went for a quick shower,dried himself and put on a casual white tuxedo. It was just a simple white blazer with a plain sky blue shirt,no tie, and white pants, they were of course all designer brand. Then just when he was about to finish tying the shoe laces of his leather brown shoes his phone buzzed indicating he received a text from someone, he finished tying his shoes and picked up the phone to see the text. http://www.ioffer.com/i/2013-hot-men-s-the-stylish-slim-white-suits-530483958

Xavier smirked as he quickly replied and slipped it into his pocket. It was from one of his agents who got him what he wanted to know about tonight's event. He then faced the vanity mirror to do his hair and saw that not many needs to be done to it as he prefers the 'just-got-of-bed-look' and felt sorry for the girls out there who had to primp themselves up. However just to be sure, he applied a quick dab of gel into it and some cologne. Finally he was prepared and ready to go and so he excited his bedroom and walked down the hallway. As he was walking down he heard voices coming from the suitor's room and decided to follow it. He discovered Katherine and Anais, if he remembers correctly, having a conversation and so being the polite person he is he decided to go and greet them.
"Hello ladies" he said with a smile as he walked up towards them ,hands in his pocket, "Excited for the upcoming gala? and you both look lovely in those dresses". He stopped before them waiting to hear their replies and at the same time wondering when will the guests arrive.

Rosalinda shook her head as her her old friend breezed into her room."What's up? Shouldn't you be down at the party... you know-- mingling with the people... one of which you have to marry?" she pointed at her before mentioning how attractive her suitors were. "Come on. There are some of those suitors who I wouldn't mind spending my life with. Mind if I have your leftovers? I don't mind picking up after you. Or, you know, we could share?" she offered before giggling and setting the tube back on the vanity. Rose sighed "Yeah they're hot," She said thinking about them " But I wanna fall in love," She clutched her friends hand to her heart "Like a fairytale."

Just as she let go and spun to her full size mirror Alex walked in "Hello Evette, fancy seeing you here. Knowing you that's what you're wearing at the gala?" Rose rolled her eyes as she tutted  "Can't you just wear a dress at least. It's an important event for the family you know"

Rose put her hand on her hip, knowing she was next. "I like the dress but isnt that showing too much of your assests dear? Wear a cardigan or a shawl. It will get cold tonight or are you just counting on the suitor's body heat to keep you warm?" Rose blushed realizing she probably heard their conversation. Rose threw her arm around Alex, "Well I can fix both of those problems. One we all are wearing different dresses to the gala, I already have my gown and one for you," Then she walked into her closet and pulled out three wrapped gift boxes "And here's a solution to Evette's outfit " She walked over to her bed and pulled out the dress, heels, and clutch outfitfrom the boxes "Tada!" She squealed. She then walked back into her closet and grabbed a cropped jacket that was grey, " Ok now I'm going to take your advice and greet people. Meet us outside in that dress. " She then pressed a button and two women walked in. "Curl her hair and do it in an amazing style." She said before turning on her heels and heading out the door, "C'mon Alex lets find me a man," She said as she strut out the door, returned, did a saucy pose, and strutted down the hallway. 

On her way out she spotted Xavier, Katherine, and Anais. "You guys look amazing," she said as she walked up to them. "Headed to the party?" She asked though she was squirming, she could Alex's disapproving glance at her cleavage so she pulled her hair to the front, making it spill down her chest. "Have any of you seen my brother or father, they always show up later. And I refuse to go down there without a buffer for my mothers wrath. " She clasped her hands and gasped " Xavier she adores the thought of us being wed and won't turn into a hellish beast around you. Care to join me?" She asked but before he could answer she steered him toward the stairs. 

 
As they walked outside she could feel the gazes and murmuring around them, "Ignore that," She mumbled plastering on a smile "They're trying to see if you've won my favor." She waved halfheartedly at some guest before spotting a curly headed girl sneaking treats, "Sweet Pea!" She exclaimed picking the girl up. "Xavier you know my half sister?" She asked pecking a kiss on the girls cheek leaving a faint red mark. The girl rubbed her cheek and groaned "Rose, stop it!". She turned to Xavier then back to rose "Are you gonna marry this one?" The girl asked "Dunno' yet." Rose shrugged.

Alex somewhat smiled approvingly as she saw the dress that the princess has chosen for her friend. It was white and a matching pair with Rosalinda's, to her this signified their friendship although Evette was already well known through out the castle grounds. As the princess was busy showing Evette's outfit one by one she arranged them on the sofa and took the princess's clutch bag for some emergency circumstances such as powdering up the nose or reapplication of the lipstick. As the princess did her antics she chuckled at it as this was not princess's would normally do however it was in Rosalinda's character so she let it past.

As they were walking down the hallway she noticed the other suitors at the same time Rosalinda did and so she greeted them along with the princess. She liked their attire and thought that they were properly dressed for this event then she glanced disapprovingly at the revealing amount of chest the princess was showing as she was well aware that Xavier,one of the princess's suitors, was there and was delighted that the princess covered it with her hair.

Soon they were outside of the castle and onto the gala grounds, she decided to leave them alone as the suitor probably needed the time with Rosalinda. She decided to follow them a few feet away although she couldn't hear what they are saying she could easily see what was happing. Before she left them she subtly leaned towards Xavier's ear to warn him to act civilised and be extra gentlemanly towards the princess.
As she was enjoying a small glass of champagne and doing small talk with important guests inquiring about this whole affair she could see the half-sister of the princess hang around the duo, she sighed at the idea but decided that she should just watch from afar but be always near enough to sense if danger was there. After all this is the prince and princess's big night with their suitors, why not let them have their fun.

"Good morning to you as well Anais. You look very nice today Anais and I agree it will be much more exciting than what's transpired in the last three months though I have to admit I'm a bit nervous." Anais smiled sympathetically at Katherine and touched the girl's shoulder gently.

"Oh, sweetie," she cooed. "All you've gotta do is smile and look pretty. You already got the pretty part down, so just smile. You'll charm all of their socks off." Anais winked at Katherine for good measure before giggling. She knew there was so much more that they would have to do for today, but freaking some poor girl out was not going to make it end well. Besides, if Katherine went down into the event with nerves, that would be the beginning of the drama right there. Just as she was about to say something else to comfort the girl before her, Anais heard a voice over her shoulder and glanced to see Xavier Smith coming from his room. Oh damn... Anais almost forgot; some of these suitors were gorgeous.

Hello ladies! Excited for the upcoming gala? And you both look lovely in those dresses." Anais smiled at him charmingly.

"Good morning, handsome. Getting over some morning jitters, but thanks for the compliment." Anais replied smoothly just as the princess and a few other familiar faces came downstairs. Anais curtsied deeply, smiling at the beautiful princess before rising as the young woman spoke. Rosalinda was asking about the King, whom Anais was not that familiar with, and of Richard. Inwardly, Anais seethed but smiled cordially to Her Highness. "If I see him,Your Highness, I will tell him that you're searching for him." When Rosalinda dragged Xavier away with her after having a mini mental breakdown over her mother, Anais pulled out her phone and sent a quick text to Richard. WHERE THE HELL R U? UR SISTER IS LOOKIN 4 U! -- Anais

Richard was jogging lightly down the steps and he paused, chuckling at Anais's irritation with him. Just for that, he was definitely going to mess with her first for the day before he went to the rest of the suitors. But first thing's first: save his little sister from his mother's wrath.

When he stepped outside, the sun's warm ray's instantly greeted his somewhat cool skin, sending an almost euphoric burst of energy throughout his pores that surged within his veins. He smiled charmingly at a few guests and bowed silkily, greeting them with a twinkle of his eyes. Some pretty much swooned; others blushed behind their fans. Smirking, Richard walked further out, catching his mother's eyes and embracing her while she was greeting a few guests.

"Good morning, mother," he said. She gave him one of her looks; one where she raked her eyes over him from head-to-toe. It definitely bothered him most times as his mother was always so critical of both he and Rosalinda, but moreso of his sister. He shifted uncomfortably until she gave him a tight-lipped smile.

"Hello, my dear. You remember what you're supposed to be doing today, don't you?" Rolling his eyes and still smirking, Rick nodded. "Good. Go flirt with one of your suitors - only your suitors. If your father complains to me one more time - "

"Perfectly understood, mother," Rick replied and kissed her cheek gently. "Don't you worry your pretty little head off. I won't even think about touching any other girls." The Queen shot him an incredulous look and Richard laughed, bowing to the women she was speaking with and excusing himself. As he turned and observed the crowd, he noticed Rosalinda on the arm of one of her suitors, Xavier, he believed. Ignoring the young man, Richard walked over and scooped Rosalinda up into his arms, grinning at her small shriek.

Everyone knew that Richard could be beyond infuriating. He almost seemed as though he didn't care about anyone but himself. However, those closest to him know that his sister had his heart and loyalty completely. It was only during these times where his true self showed - where he was warmer, softer, and maybe even a tad bit happier. He inwardly loathed the day that some random suitor would take his baby sister away and fought the urge to give Xavier a scathing look.

Looking beautiful as ever, Snow. Not like I didn't expect that," he told her and finally set the brunette down. He nodded to one of her ladies-in-waiting before settling his eyes onb Xavier, nothing but coldness and seriousness radiating in his eyes. "I expect nothing but respect and gentleman-like behavior from you. Otherwise, you will find how quickly I can it so that you do not exist." A beat later, Richard smiled charmingly. "Enjoy the festivities." And with a flourish, he was gone, sending a text to his tiny sprite of a friend for her whereabouts.

Off to find Anais and possibly one of his suitors.

Oh, and a glass of champagne to start his day.

Katherine smiled gratefully at Anais. "Thanks. I'm glad to see you're not as nervous as I am." she said and her tone held that of gratefulness. Seeing Xavier made her smile as well. "Hello Xavier and you're looking great yourself. We're just headed to the events actually I take it you are yourself?" she said to the suitor. When the Princess, her friend and her ladies in waiting approached and greeted them and Katherine curtsied to the princess. "Good morning princess and thank you. You look beautiful for the day's events." she stated honestly as she did to Anais and Xavier and noticed that she tried to cover her cleavage with her hair but said nothing about it and didn't think too much about it as it did not concern her.

The princess was indeed very kind to her but Katherine could not consider her a friend really but of course would reciprocate her kindness and respect her. After the princess went off with her suitor she noticed Anais' actions. "Everything alright?" she asked curiously. She wasn't going to pry but it was simply making sure that the girl was alright. If Anais did not wish to speak of it further she wouldn't.

ImageRose was standing with Xavier when she was suddenly sweeped into her brothers arms. She squealed with glee, ignoring the looks of the guest. She didn't really care about them. Her brother was her best friend. She also knew to some degree he loathed the idea of her getting married. And in some degree she haed the idea of having to share her big brother. She was always the one who would cheer him up or make him smile, she didn't want to share that ability. Though she supposed his child would do that too. She also imagined Grace wouldn't. That made a frown a little. 

"Looking beautiful as ever, Snow. Not like I didn't expect that," he told her setting her down. She pouted a little, because she knew that meant he was leaving soon. . It didn't take long for him to go to defense mode against Xavier "I expect nothing but respect and gentleman-like behavior from you. Otherwise, you will find how quickly I can it so that you do not exist.Enjoy the festivities." He then left in a way only the prince could. Rose blushed at Xavier "Sorry he does that" She said with a shrug. 

She felt a little tug at her dress and saw Cecily frowning "WHy didn't he spin me?" She asked. Rose frowned " He uh well..." Luckily Evette arrived. Cecily  liked Evette. "Did you forget about me, Cecily?" Evette To which Cicely responded "No Evie, 'course not," Rose smiled at the arrival of Natalia but was getting distracted by the couple with there eyes on her. 

She recognized the man immediately it was Blake, her blake, or he was her Blake. His mouth was in a firm uncomfortable line. She then noticed the woman snaked around him. ""that must be his fiancee" She thought to herself.  Just as she moved to approach them her fathers voice stopped her. He was  standing on the elaborate stage. 
The Polo Match

"Welcome, welcome my guest. Welcome to the annual Mid Summers  dream event and Gala. He smiled charmingly "I'm sorry this is just the event." He chuckled. "Well my family and my court welcomes you." Almost synchronized the court bowed their heads. The Royal Family waved, charmingly. "Well please enjoy the polo match it's beginning in ten minuets. " He said, his voice could be heard throughout the castle. "I ask you all to look at your invitation it has your seating sections.


The guest were all seated in their proper sections. The Princess and Prince right next to each other. The right hand man in the seat directly behind him, The princess's maidens sat behind her. The suitors all sat on either side of the prince and princess. The king and Queen were to be sat in an elevated section however the King peffered to sit with his people, though he was flanked by security, his mistress sat at the table next to him with their daughter on her lap. 



Image
Rose sat and watched the match. She glanced to her right and saw her father sitting with his mistress and half sister. Not that she minded she was happy Dorothy got to be out with her dad and sister in public. Though glancing at her mother, she couldn't help but feel a twinge of guilt. Because beneath her strong facade, her mother looked so... lonely. 

She sighed remembering when things were simple. Before Dorothy, before her dad started cheating. Back when her mother used to smile at her and Richard. Her mother never smiled at her anymore. In truth Dorothy is more of mom to her than her mother ever could be. But she still wanted her mother to be happy.

"Everything alright?"

Anais nearly jumped out of her skin when Katherine called to her. Just as quickly, she plastered a smile on her face and put her cell phone away. For a second, the proper response would have spilled and then Anais would have to explain her relationship to Rick and that was far more complicated than what she was ready to deal with today. So, she just shrugged.

"My mom," Anais decided upon and shrugged again, trying to convey as much nonchalance as she could even though thinking of the older Beauchene made her stomach hurt. Not out of disgust, but stress. Another health issue her mother was able to arise from her. "She's been super bitchy...I mean, she's been putting on a lot of pressure about this whole ordeal. Ya know, the whole ideal of being the daughter of the Prince of Historia - the possible Queen. I had to text her."

That wasn't exactly a lie either. In between Anais waking up as early as she did and getting ready for the day, her mother called her. Hell, last night the woman called and gave the great speech of how she didn't want Anais to become a disappointment. She hadn't replied about already disappointing the woman; she simply told her that she would do her best and bid her adieu. But...some part of Anais seemed to feel bad that she lied to Katherine. Perhaps, in a more private setting, she would tell the girl. Maybe it would shed light on what Anais should do with the whole suitor/friend/possible lover thing.

Shaking her head to keep from stressing out when the day had only just begun, Anais grinned and linked arms with Katherine, pulling her alone.

"We should get going. If Her Highness is outside, then that means the rest of the royal family is sure to come and we should be out there." Sure enough, the second they reached the event, Anais' eyes fell on Richard, who was snagged up by some older woman who was unabashedly flirting with him. She smirked at the sight of him calmly handling the woman and when she caught his eye, her smirk widened. She leaned into Katherine. "He really has no shame. It's a good thing that is the Queen's favorite clothing designer."

Just as she was about to tell Katherine more, it was announced that the polo match was to begin and everyone moved along to get to their seats. As they walked, Richard approached them and stood before them. His eyes slid over Katherine slowly, taking in her long, slim legs and trailed up to the way the dress clung to her delicate figure. Finally, his eyes rose up to her hazel ones and then drifted over to meet Anais' challenging stare. Again, he gave a slow appraisal, smirking to himself in amusement because without even having to raise his eyes again, he could tell that she was slightly uncomfortable and peeved that this was the way he chose to greet her. Finally, his smirk morphed into a cordial smile yet his eyes seemed almost warm when he gazed at her.

Confusing fuck, she thought and glanced at Katherine's face quickly to gauze the girl's reaction.

"Ladies, you both look...ravishing today," Rick near purred and his eyes flitted back to Katherine briefly, but Anais refused to leave the blonde's side. If Richard needed to speak with her, he could do it later. "I hope you both have enjoyed yourselves during your stay." Of course, you do.

"Thank you, Your Highness. You look very handsome yourself," Anais replied, giving Katherien time to respond as well. Still smirking with a glint in his eyes, Richard nodded to them both before approaching his seat. He sat with such swagger; it was hard to believe that one could sit with swagger. But somehow, Richard Santini was able to accomplish that feat. She glanced back at Katherine. "We should probably go ahead and take our seats. I can point out a few people for you if you'd like."

Katherine was surprised by Anais' answer. It was surprising because she dealt with the same thing. Her mother pushed her beyond her limit to exceed and try her very hardest to become the future queen. Her mother didn't actually care for Katherine just the opportunities that could arise if she becomes queen despite how much Katherine wished to stray from such a fate. Katherine brought herself from her thoughts when she had yet to answer. "I know the feeling." was her simple answer and she smiled once their arms were linked and walked outside.

She spotted what Anais did with the prince and a designer she actually recognized. She shook here head and laughed lightly at what Anais had did but stopped once the Polo matches beginning was announced and the prince approached them. She noticed his look towards her yet didn't react as she seemingly like Anais was not affected by it. Katherine had only seen very few who weren't affected by the prince's gaze or simple words that would usually get him in bed with any girl that did fall for it.

Despite all that she still respected him because of his royalty and by the fact that despite his womanizing ways he managed to be truthful to others and she had yet to ever see him act cruel to anyone. Katherine respects his sister, the princess because of her status but more so because of her kindness. She was once again brought from her thoughts but this time by the prince's voice. "Thank you, your grace. You're looking nice today yourself." she said nonchalantly but noticed the silent interaction between him and Anais.

Katherine was thankful to Anais though and very much so that he did not leave her side as she would not melt at the prince's feet if he attempted to flirt with her like many girls before her did and therefore did not want to have many people eyeing her and bringing unwanted attention to her. She seemed unfazed by the prince and walked with Anais once again. "That would be great as I don't know half the people here." Katherine replied honestly to Anais' offer. She didn't usually concern herself with the people of upperclass status as she grew up having low respect for many of them that associated themselves with her father.

Katherine was thankful that her father despite being a friend to his majesty the king he was very rarely ever around the castle or at court. She has yet to even see him for the three months she's been here. She distanced herself from both her parents mainly her father as she couldn't do so with her mother so the only people she knew of were the royal family. The ladies in waiting and the suitors were people she had met after she came here so she was thankful that Anais offered to tell her who the people were as to not seem rude if any approached her.

Adam Loire ~
Three months has past, just three months and surprisingly Adam didn't leave. He could if he wanted to, but that wouldn't be good of him to just up and leave without giving -living here- a try. Adam didn't leave because, of a particular individual poked at his interest too much for him to even try leaving. Sitting up in his bed, he began to look around. "Seems like she left quite early." Smirking at what he said, he got up after hearing a whole lot of people moving and bumping around. Picking up his scattered clothing, he threw them in a pile in the basket, which made him remember that he had to 'dress up' for the evening.

Deciding to then take a bath before even touching a suit, he did. After he was done bathing, he put on his suit and sprayed a bit of cologne just to add a little 'spice' to it. After he finished checking himself out in the mirror, he walked out of his room. He walked to wherever the Polo field was, he wasn't a real fan of this sport but, he would have to deal with it. When he showed up at the match, he sighed quietly to himself and looked around, he didn't want to sit next to his 'family', not at all. He looked for anyone he could tolerate, anyone that didn't get on his nerves when talking to him.

After a moment or two he laid his eyes on Nyx, the girl that escaped his room without saying a Good morning, or a Hello. Staring at the woman as she didn't notice him standing there, he decided to walk towards her thinking that she'd put her attention onto him. As he shortened the distance between them, luckily there was room to sit behind her, so he did just that.

Dianna Grant ~
Awoke to nothing but, a silent room. It was kept neat and clean, she always made sure of that. Sitting up in her bed, she ran her fingers through her hair. She realized today would be a eventful one, and she had to dress her best. So she got up to a shower, and put on her dress and did her hair to match it. Looking at herself, she smiled and then walked towards the door. These past three months have went so smoothly for her, she made a couple of friends, and she only cried about 5 times each month. Other than that, in the last three months, surprisingly there was not much to worry about. Well, for her at least.

Continuing to walk out the door she went to where the Polo match would be place and noticed Anais and Katherine standing at a certain distance and she decided to join in whatever they were talking about. "Hello Anais and Katherine." She said their names as polite as can be, she really liked how wonderful they had looked in their dresses, though looks aren't anything to her. Looking over at the prince with a quick glance or two before bringing her attention back to the two woman in front of her.

Anais spent a lot of the time while they were sitting whispering to Katherine, telling her who various people were that she could remember and some that Rick told her were going to be there. She actually saw one of her older AKA sisters and wriggled her fingers at the older woman. If Anais was correct, the one was of noble blood and she told Katherine of this. She discreetly pointed at one man in particular who stuffed a small cake into his mouth before washing it down with some champagne.

"Oh, and that is Lord Khal. Watch yourself around him. He tends to like to shove a lot of things into his mouth - ask his wife. To this day, their original wedding ring is still missing," she whispered and ended up laughing with the blonde, recalling hearing that. It was almost as if the older man could feel or hear someone talking about him because in two seconds flat, he was looking around before his eyes fell on them. Anais erupted into a fit of giggles. Before she could go back to pointing things out to Kat like how hot one of the polo players looked, Dianna appeared and Anais rose her eyes to the blonde as she made her way over to them.

"Hello Anais and Katherine," Dianna greeted them all polite-like and almost too former. Anais smirked.

"Girl, why so formal? It's not like we haven't been together for three months now," Anais replied, patting the seat beside her. "Loving the dress by the way. Almost thought you wouldn't make it."
