Description

Image
Image




Image
Name: Evette Harke
Age: 20
Position: "Well, none- I guess the closest I could get to holding a position in Court would be 'almost part of the family'. At least I hope so. I'd better be almost part of the family," (Best friend of the prince and princess)
Sexuality: Heterosexual



Image
Likes:
+ Her friends, but she can't say she doesn't like the Prince and Princess better than her other friends.
+ Partying
+ School, even though she would never admit it
+ The color pink, even if that makes her seem even more girly than she is
+ Laughing
+ Dancing, even if she isn't the best at it-- at least she isn't downright horrible.
+ Summer, because swimming weather is good weather.

Dislikes :
- Winter-- it's freezing and it makes everything less colorful.
- Embarrassment
- Being alone
- Painting- she can appreciate art, but she is rubbish at painting and that annoys her to no end.
- Being called 'weak' or 'girly'-- her favorite motto is 'anything a boy can do, I can do in heels and a dress'.
- Being bored
- Dishonesty

Skills
  • She is good at getting what she wants, when she wants it.
  • She is loyal to her friends and family, and wouldn't hesitate to take a bullet for them
  • Her mother stressed to her the importance of being kind above everything, and because of it she finds it easy to befriend most people.
  • It would be lying to say she isn't a flirt, and a good one at that. Sometimes it's on purpose, but most of the time she doesn't mean it.
  • She is smart, in a book-smart sort of way. She's not so much street-smart as 'street-aware' though. She can handle herself, but sometimes she forgets the silliest of things, like the fact you shouldn't wave your arms around near breakables.


Fears

  • She fears losing her friends and family, or them not liking her anymore
  • She has acute Eremophobia- that is, the fear of being lonely.




Secrets:
  • When she first met the princess, it wasn't exactly by accident. Sure, they went to the same upper-class school and it was easy to make it look like an accident, but she isn't exactly from the same class as the princess. So, she planned her way into meeting her and befriending her-- at first only for her own personal gain, but then it became a friendship she would sacrifice everything for.
  • Before she became a close friend of the Prince, she was one of many people who had an... obsession, for lack of a better word. More importantly, she had a crush on him. It seems awkward and silly now, though, but she still blushes when she sees him every once in a while. It's not like she can blame her younger self, either. He is a prince.
  • She is very afraid to tell anyone this, though she can't figure out why she is scared to, but she was adopted into the Harke family. Her real parents died before she was one.

Allies:
-The princess, of course. Evette has her back, and she hopes it works the other way too
-The prince- same with the princess, really.
Enemies:
N/A

Love Interest:
N/A currently






Personality: Evette, or Eve to the people she cares about, is unmistakeably the life of the party. She loves to be out and about, and she isn't afraid to take charge of a situation, be it a disaster or picking out where to go out to. She is as loyal as loyal can be while still having an opinion on things-- opinions she will voice, even if it gets her into loads of trouble. That's another thing, she is a troublemaker. She doesn't plan things, and does many things on the whim, and that always seems to get her into trouble, and even when it goes planned, no problem at all, she makes sure it feels like trouble. Not that she is a 'bad girl', because she isn't, but she is definitely a mischievous minx. And she is a minx- a bold, flighty, flirtations girl all around. To make matters worse (for the few friends who don't want to get into a gigantic mess), she is smart and cunning as the day is bright.

Despite the fact that she knows how to get what she wants and knows exactly what to say to get her way, no matter what, she is kind. She has a kind of immature, innocent look to her that makes people want to befriend her and protect her, but once they are in her range, they discover her real nature. Though, she is normally a fixture in their day already and she wouldn't really hurt anyone. Besides, she loves making friends-- even if none of them will be her best friends. Those two spots are taken.
History Evette was born in the Historia capital, to two people who would never see their little girl grow up, go to school, or even walk. Evette doesn't remember much of them, as she was only seven months old when they passed. A car wreak... a drunk driver had taken their lives while she was at a nanny. Normally, this would mean she would go the nearest relative, but both of her parents had no sisters or brothers and all her grandparents lived in the Linion sector. Eventually, it was decided she would be put up for adoption. The Harke family took her in soon enough and the rest, as they say, is history.

Evette grew up normally- getting into trouble a bit more than the average child, but making up for it with love and compassion, and always getting all a's and b's on her report card. Not exceptional, unimportant in the grande scheme of things. Problem is, Evette was never fine with being normal. She had a less-than-normal past, she thought she deserved an exceptional future. So, as she was in the same school as the infamous princess, and the same year, she began to plan. It was simple enough- 'run into' Rosalinda and bring up a conversation with her while avoiding her protector. So, as he is male, bathroom it was. It went off without a hitch, and soon enough they were friends. Though, there was one hitch in the plan- Evette really liked Rosalinda. She wasn't snobby or horrid in any way-- she made a truly good friend. Soon enough, she was a main fixture at Rosalinda's side and Evette and her new best friend got into all kinds of mess. Then, Evette was introduced to the prince and they became friends as well, then best friends. She let go of her crush on him as well- it seemed awkward after she was his friend. Now, she is a staple at the king's home, and spends more time there than she does at home.

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
June 21, The morning before the Mid Summers dream event and gala 
The mid summers dream ball is the event and gala celebrating summer, visitors, along with the rich and famous in the country all come. I's a great way to raise funds fo the queens charities as well. The Event includes polo, horse competitions and other outdoor activities during the day. And at night they have a gala. This is a great way for the people to meet the potential spouses of the prince and princess and deem their support.


The Servants and help are buzzing through the castle preparing for the ball. The Lady's in waiting are preparing for the princess. Waking her and generally trying to get her ready. The other residents of the castle are currently preparing themselves as well. It's a sunny crisp day. There are white tents set up outside with decedent foods being prepared for them The polo players are on the field practicing. The guest have been instructed to wear formal white or pastel clothes. Women are to wear gowns, dresses, or formal pantsuits(Remember this is outside so these are not wedding gowns, or homecoming dresses they are light and airy).Men are to wear crisp suits.

Evette's mother shook her sleeping daughter awake as she always did, pulling the sheets from under her feet and yelling at her for not finishing her chores. Evette smiled at the normality of it as she rolled out of bed and ran a hand through her bed-head as she made her way to the kitchen to add the dishes she hadn't done to the dishwasher. Once that was done, she made her way back to her room and looked at her calendar.

"Oh yea - Polo at the palace today," she smiled as she looked into her closet for something to wear. It was supposed to be formal, but she didn't do formal well, so she simply grabbed a white t-shirt and striped pants before pulling an over sized jacket over the entire ensemble and sliding on some simple flats. They wouldn't kick her out- they never had, at least- and she wasn't out to impress.

"Mom, I'm going up to the palace. See you tonight," she said as she walked out the door and pulled her bike from the small garage at her families home. It was a slow ride, but she enjoyed the view of the trail to the palace. They had gardeners working full time around there, and it made it so very pretty. It took her twenty minutes to ride the trail to the palace, but it was well worth it in her mind.

Even though Evette could probably get around all the guards by just going through, as they all knew her and at least tolerated her in the home, she preferred to sneak in. She dug her heels into a crevice in one of the walls and pulled herself into one of the many storage rooms within the palace from the window that always seemed to be closed too loose. Maybe they were just going easy on her and letting her in? Either way, it was awful fun.

Evette made her way up to Rose's room just as her mother walked out. Evette had never adored her best friend's mother, but they tolerated each other to some extent. Evette waved half-heatedly to her as she walked into the room, where Rose was applying her lipstick.

"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 behind her as she walked over to the vanity and picked up the lipstick tube before playing with it in one hand and looking at the window that overlooked the gardens.

"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," she said as she looked back to her best friend. "Or, you know, we could share?" she offered before giggling and setting the tube back on the vanity.

She was currently on the castle grounds helping with the preparations for the gala as she was finished with her other tasks anyway. 3 months into the job and she was already loving it though there were some up and downs, she got to know the castle inhabitants and she already formed her honest opinions about them though she does not utter them out loud. As she was finishing setting up the food and drinks she received word that the gala is going to start soon and this prompted her to quickly change and attend to the princess.

She took a quick bath which was already prepared by an another maid whom she must thank for doing this for her. She quickly dried herself and sat before her vanity table to apply her makeup. She doesn't like gaudy makeup or anything too flashy so she stuck to doing the natural look and for her hair she decided a half-up,half-down with curls at the end and her hair secured in a french twist style. After that she headed to her warbrobe and pondered for a while on what dress to wear, eventually she choose a purple dress which she got in Milan the last time she was there.

Finally when she deemed herself ready she heard her bell ring and left the room to go to the princess's room as she was summoned. When she was walking down the hallway she saw the prince walk down and slightly bowed to him and said a quick hello before continuing her journey but soon after that she saw Nyx all dressed up, slightly flustered looking. She guessed that she was with Adam again but decided not to comment on it but greeted her instead.
"You better hurry up Nyx, the princess has called us" she announced as she continued on and finally she reached the princess's room. Alex knocked to announce her presence and walked in,she saw Evette was there...wearing casual clothes but she was glad that the princess was dressed at least but disapproved of the amount of cleavage showing.
"Hello Evette, fancy seeing you here. Knowing you that's what you're wearing at the gala?" she asked her tutting disapprovingly "Can't you just wear a dress at least. It's an important event for the family you know"
She then turned her attentions to Rosalinda "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?" she said as she heard their conversation earlier.

Anthony Curtiz
Anthony had this habit of finding people at the worst possible times. Like when he was four and his mum let him go run around at the playground, and he heard some noises coming from the bushes and walked in there to see a cat tearing apart a bird. Ever since then he had had a sort of phobia of cats, even though that was completely illogical now that he knew they really couldn't do more than bite and scratch him, let alone eat him, but that image came back to his head every time he saw a cat. Or when he was thirteen and woke up late one night, and happened to walk by his father's study to hear him conversing with someone inside. That's when he found out that he wasn't really a Curtiz, and just some orphan boy from a low class family that they found outside their door one day. Though he never asked about it, deciding to bear the burden of knowing alone. They had always treated him like their own, showered him with gifts and money and really anything he wanted. He didn't bother trying to find out what happened to his parents, either.

Now he wandered the halls, having gotten ready early so he had time to spare. Even with his three months at the castle, he had not had time to explore the whole place. Actually, he had been busy mostly with spending time with Princess Rose, they had been getting along quite well. She was nice, if not a bit childish, and a bit too provocative. Anthony had no idea how she put both immaturity and immodest together, but she seemed to do it perfectly. Still, they got along smashingly, but it also made him have troubles seeing her as more than a friend. Definitely a problem, since he was supposed to be fighting for her hand. No matter, things would work themselves out, they always did in these cases.

It wasn't much longer until he would find another situation to add to his Awkward List, as he came upon a Miss Grace Lynn, sitting on the floor barefoot. His hand covered his mouth to stifle a chuckle as he approached her from the side, stopping and leaning against the wall when he was an appropriate distance from her. "Morning Miss Grace." He greeted her kindly, having spoken to her few times and deciding he liked her. "Lost or tired?" Anthony asked, smiling as he held out a hand to help her stand.

Nyx Adrienne
After helping out the princess as much as she could, Nyx excused herself and left the room, leaving Alex to scold Rose for dressing like a pornstar and Evette to discuss threesomes. She had no idea how she liked the group so much, they were all so different, but she loved being around them. Today though, there was something noticeably off about her, which had actually grown to sort of be a normal thing after the nights she spent with Adam. How many times had she marched to his room in the middle of the night, intent on ending this little "friends with benefits" thing they had going on? About as many times as she instead ended up waking in his bed and hating herself even more. She had a feeling that Alex knew, she didn't know how the other lady did but she could only hope that she wouldn't spread it around. Adam and her were still friends to the public, she didn't need that getting all messed up.

Instead of going back to hide in her room until the Event started, she headed down into the huge courtyard and busied herself with helping the servants however she could. Though she had a feeling that she wasn't much help, considering what little tasks they gave her, and how few they were. So eventually when they shooed her off, she went without question, going towards the polo field. Ever since she was little she had a love for horses, and she knew how to ride quite well, if only she wasn't always so busy attending to the princess. A few of the players came over to greet her, knowing her from her many visits to the stables, and she fed each of their horses bits of treats that she snuck from plates while helping set up.

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.

Natalia woke to the brightness of the morning sun. The sunlight filtered in through her window, and cast an orange glow in the room. She tossed in her bed for a moment, not wanting to get up, but she finally pushed herself out of bed. She darted to the bathroom quickly so she could be ready on time. Once there, she started her morning routine off by brushing her teeth. Then, she turned on the shower. Hot water tricked down her body, both relaxing her and waking her up at the same time. By the time she was done, steam filled the bathroom and fogged the mirrors. Wrapping herself in a towel, she went to her closet to decide on what to wear. There was a party soon, so she wanted to look presentable.

Talia finally settled on her outfit. It consisted of a peach strapless dress, silver heels, a bracelet and a clutch. She wanted to keep it simple, since the focus today was on the prince and princess. At the thought of the princess, Natalia remembered she needed to help Rose get ready for the party. Quickly brushing her hair, she let her dark curls down, cascading down her back. After she put on some light lipstick and makeup, she left her room.

As she approached Rose's chambers, a servant tapped on her shoulder. Miss, would be so kind as to help us set up for the party? We're a bit short on hands right now," he inquired. Natalia glanced at the door to Rose's room and sighed. She had two other ladies in waiting to help her get ready for now. "Of course, I'll help," she replied.

Natalia spent most of the time helping set up the tables and the food, or hanging up decorations. Servants were running frantically around the castle, each set with a task in mind. It was hard work, but they were finally finished. By the time the finishing touches were done, people were already beginning to arrive. She spotted the princess walking out wearing a beautiful white dress. Alex, Evette, and Xavier accompanied her. Natalia absolutely adored the princess. She was a very kind person, and they had known each other for a long time. It was nice to see Evette in a dress, since she usually wormed her way out of it and wore casual clothes. She approached Rose, and gave a small curtsy. "Looking beautiful as always I see," Natalia said with a playful smile. "Sorry I couldn't help you get ready this morning, I was out here lending a hand with the set up." She smiled at Alex and Evette, before turning to greet Xavier. "Hey Xavier, how are you?"

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.

Just as the brother left another person drifted over who tuned out to be Evette, who was wearing a dress similar to the princess. He greeted her with a tilt of his head accompanied with a smile "Nice to see you here though I shouldn't be surprised as your face is very familiar in this castle" he said then he put on a playfully annoyed look but deep down he was annoyed "And only this cute little girl gets to call me Xav" he added as he playfully winked at Cecily who blushed and giggled.
Soon enough another lady whose name is Natalia ,who he believes is part of the lay-in-waiting, came over he greeted her similarly like he did to Evette and complimented her dress "Well, I didn't see you at the gala so far and you've finally graced us with your lovely presence" he said "Doing your duty's?" he asked.

When he turned to talk to Rosalinda and was about to tell her that she was lucky to have nice companions he caught her staring at something. He followed her gaze and his eyes settled on a man and a woman, he resumed back to talking as he thought nothing of it thinking that they were some sort of important guests. Then he heard the king's voice announcing that the polo match was about to begin, he accompanied the ladies to their special seats, his seat was beside the princess and he looked to his other side to see two empty chairs for the yet to come suitors. He noted that he has a good view of the field and he also noticed the ing seated among the public as well as Cecily was beside him seating on a lap of a woman whose face he recognised somewhere.
'Maybe thats the mother..' he mused as he waited for the match, though he wasn't a fan of polo he appreciated the game at least.
