Personality: 
{Deceptive, Sheltered, Sweet, Naive, Hopeless Romantic}
Rose grew up extremely sheltered, which has made her slightly oblivious to the evil around her. Though she's not immune to it. She has her faults but she tries to hide them as much as  possible. As the princess, she feels that is her duty. 

Rose is very deceptive. Many people look into those beautiful big blue eyes and think, she can do no evil, they are mostly right. She is generally a good girl but her, shall we say whimsical? ways tend to get her in a bit of trouble. She can play everyone like a fiddle. She plays the sweet little bambi everyday. But the truth is she's actually very mischievous. She meddled in people's affairs quite a bit as well. Rose is very sheltered. She has no sense of financial responsibility, or danger, or really any saddening thought. Not that she hasn't experienced heartbreak, because she has.

Rose is a total sweetheart. She hates seeing people sad. Rose is the kind of person to try to make everyone welcome and comfortable. She loves making people smile and just being genuinely nice. She is a bit Naive, not mainly she's gullible. It is because of her naivety that she is so heavily protected, She's seen as the hope of the royal family. She's the ray of sunshine. She is the  one alway smiling. When she was younger her father called her and her lady in waiting snow white and her merry fairies. Mainly because she resembled snow white with he pale skin, light blue eyes, and naturally red lips, but also because he thought she embodies snow white. 

Above all Rose is a hopeless romantic. She loves the idea of love. Some girls dreamed of being successful and happy. All she eve wanted was her prince and her fairytale wedding. She used to keep a collection of bridal magazines in her room as a child. She would always turn to her dad and say "Daddy look at the pretty brides," And he would smile and say "They look like princess's" And she would pout and say "I'm a princess and I don't look like that." And he'd say "When you fall in love you and the world around you becomes prettier" And she would say "Is that why mother is so pretty?" But he would shake his head and get a sad look in his eye and say "No that's not why mom is so pretty."

History
As previously mentioned Rose grew up in a sheltered home. Well her father sheltered her, her mother was a whole different story. Her father saw her as his darling daughter pure of heart, her mother saw her as foolish and often useless. Her father used to take her all over their country. But her mom would keep her locked up in the castle when he was away on trips without her. The only friend who was allowed in was Evette so growing up the only people she was closets was Richard and Evette. Her mother always saw her as just the pretty face. She was to be seen and not heard. 

But Rose was a lively child, always escaping her lessons, hiding in the kitchens. She was mischievous and full of life. She always was careful to never seem unhappy. She never frowned around people, she never complained, even when she was physically in pain she would have a tight smile. Growing up she was afraid of her mother. She was especially afraid of her mothers judgement. 

She learned to make this mold of who she was supposed to be, and she would just be that. Even now she's naive but she's not trusting, few have seen the young princess's emotions. She keeps them all bottled up inside. Because that's what she was taught to do. 

Rose is also meticulously cared for. She was deathly I'll as a child and sence then people have worried constantly over her health.

Anything Else:

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
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.

Rosalinda woke up to the sun peeking through one window. She squintented her light green eyes  and looked for the source of light. FInally she found it in the window facing her bed. She glared at the curtains in disapproval. Sighing, she rolled over onto her back. The first thing her eyes sought was the electronic board with little red buttons on each of the rooms. One press and a servant would be summoned. She sat up and leaned toward the board before quickly stopping herself "A princess isn't lazy" She chasticed herself. She  begrudgingly rose out of bed and walked over to the window, untucked the thick curtain and walked back to the bed. With the pess of a button her windows automatically pulled aside the thick layer of cutain leaving a gauzy, satin one in it's wake. She smirked thouroughly pleased with herslef. Before going back to the ellectric boad and gently pushing the buttons connected to her lady in waiting's rooms, along with Her "Nanny", who was really like an unnofcial paid mother to her as well as her father's lover, Dorothy.

She walked into her walk in closet. Wich was actually originally a guest room. Her father let her make alot of decisions regardging her oom. SO she decided to take a master suit and knock out the two adjourning rooms in order to make a exspansive closet and vanity and a large bathroom. She picked out her own outfitbut deemed it neccessary to get her lady's oppinions. She walked back into the room, and being that she was unsure what to do with her time she decided to just bush her hair. Which she let gow and how eached her lowe back. She always had to brush her hai befoe she took a shower to turn he big curls to waves to they would be eaer to wash. She then took a nice hot shower. 

Once she was out she brushed he again, not that it mattered, due  to the thickness of her hair even when thououghly bushed the best she could do was make is slightly less wavy. That always botheed her. She decided to do her own hai as she waited. She braided the cown of her head,  tucking in tiny atificial white and light blue flowers that matched her outfit throughout the braid. She then added wate and a cult maintanance syum to her hair that kept he culs bouncy and maintained. 

She walke dback into the closet and slipped the outfit on. The neckline was a bit low and was showing off her rather impressivee cleavage but she didn't mind. She slipped on her heels and went back into her room only to see her mother. "What are you weaing daughter? She asked.
"A dress." She said walking past her mother to her vanity. She slicked on some ligiud eye liner, in up style, and some red lipstick, before deaming sahe was ready. Her mother shook her head in dissaproval but left anyway.

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.

"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.

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.

The interactions so far were safe and nothing too dramatic though she was still on high alert.
She liked Cecily ,though she is the illegitimate child of the king, she is an innocent little girl caught up in a political mess. When Rosalinda had no answer as to why the prince didn't spin her she picked her up and said 'Cheer up, I tell you what I have a stash of sweets made especially for you over there" indicating at a white table in the centre filled with goodies "Do you want some?" she asked.
Cecily nodded eagerly and so they set of to the banquet table knowing that the princess is in safe hands. When Cecily was in the middle of gouging on her sweets she heard the king announcing that the polo match was about to start and so she scooped Cecily up and looked around for the mother. It didn't take a long time to look for her though as she could see her standing beside the king, Cecily squirmed in her arms and when Alex let go she ran to her mother who scooped her up and kissed her on the cheek.

Then she immediately set off to where the court was seated and as she passed by Nyx she asked her where she was as well as saying hello to Natalia. She sat with her co-workers and waited patiently for the match to begin.

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.
