Setting

As per the wishes of their respective rulers, the Capricorn and Virgo Kingdoms make it a point to meet several times a year to strengthen their relationship. At this point in time, the Princess of Capricorn, the Prince's wife, made her journey over to the Kingdom of Virgo to meet their own ruling Princess. While it wasn't the first time the Caprian princess had brought her eldest son Winston to such an event, this was a first for the young Darcy, to be so far from his home.

As the party of three arrive at Flamma, the eldest Virian daughter anticipated the new guests, while Winston spoke cheerily of the adorable Virian princess. Darcy had been entrusted by his father not to act shameful, so he could only focus on being on his best behavior. Yet despite his wishes, he found himself in the company of the young princess Amalia. They've met before, although that was before either of them could even remember. Thus, it was these series of events which began the story between the Virian princess and the Caprian prince.

Before leaving the castle, Darcy understood that the trip to the Virgo Kingdom would take a very long time. Though, he didn't realize how long "a long time" really was. The journey itself took thirteen days, and much of it was spent in a carriage, or on horseback. While the young prince had no qualms with sitting still, there was only so much he could bear. His mother told him that they could stop and do some exploring through the kingdoms they had passed, including the Aries Kingdom, Crocodelle, and the Libra Kingdom, but Darcy knew that that would only delay their trip. At 8 years old, he knew the sweet taste of punctuality.

Besides, in retrospect, the trip wasn't terrible. The Arian escorts were a subject to enjoy. Winston and their mother often exchanged uncomfortable, yet amused looks on the Arians' bantering. And the three spent a lot of time covering a variety of topics, other than those of business, in fact!

"There's a sweet little princess, you know," Winston said to Darcy during their ferry ride approaching the kingdom. Darcy's eyes widened slightly at this. He wasn't aware of any children being involved in this, what he assumed, business trip. "Younger than you, too. I expect you to treat her in the most gentlemanly way possible. And a little prince, too— same age as Keen. Play with them nicely, you hear?" The 12-year-old prodigy smiled expectantly. Darcy could only stare.

---

Standing beside his mother and older brother, the latter's words echoed through Darcy's head. He didn't expect that he would do anything other than observe and demonstrate his Caprian temperament. Play? Nonsense, he was there to be a prince, not a child. He held his head up, dignified, as the heralds announced their arrival at the castle doors. He must present himself respectably, per his father's wishes.

Upon entering the grand room, the four-foot-two-inched boy shrunk slightly. Self-awareness creeped now, and he felt particular small in the grandeur of this foreign place. He gripped his sleeves and walked close to his mother. Still void of any expression, he took glances around the room, admiring its atmosphere. He bumped into his mother when they stopped walking.

"Oh, I really don't visit here often enough," Princess Lilith sighed while admiring the room, her Kérata's ornaments softly chiming with the turn of her head. She looked forward toward her host with gentle smile and a curtsy. "It's a pleasure to be invited to your home, once again, Princess Virgo." On her left, Winston bowed, and on her right, Darcy bowed as well, though half a beat late, as he was entranced by the person before him. Particularly the wings.

Thirteen days of having to wait. It made Amalia's skin crawl with anticipation, so much so her mother barely knew what to do with the eldest. Her younger brother, however? Just as shy and soft-spoken as ever. While he might of only been five, the boy was truly too smart for his own good. "Amalia, I know how much you admire Princess Capricorn, but this time we'll be having a few more guests. I expect you all to be on your best behavior." Eden announced, tapping the skittish girl on the nose lightly, almost as if she was a cat.

"Mama! I know!" Amalia whined, stomping her tiny foot in a pout. She could almost hear Giovanni let out a giggle, causing Amalia to shot him a stubborn look. "It's Giovanni, you should worry about!"

"Hush little one, no need to pass along blame so quickly." The current Princess laughed, her husband scooping up Giovanni for what assumed to be the fifteenth time that day, by the way he squirmed. They didn't have much longer to wait, much to Amalia's joy. Word had it, the royals had finally reached the ferry.




The moment the tiny future princess had laid eyes on the Caprians, however, everything seemed to still. She hid behind her mother's puffy dress, almost praying that she wouldn't be spotted, or noticed. Eden just tried not to laugh at the scene she witnessed behind her. Standing at a full height of five foot five, and relatively larger wings then Amalia could of ever dreamed of getting, it'd be impossible to spot her.

But oh how Eden had to admit Princess Lilith and her children never cease to impress her. With their beauty, their grace, it all was something the Princess of Virgo greatly appreciated for what it was truly worth. A smile just lightly graced Eden's face. "Please, Princess, no need to curtsy. I would like to believe we're friends, wouldn't you? As for visiting, well, I love your company no matter how infrequent it might be, love." Though, she did strongly feel the same. Lilith definitely needed to visit more often, but she knew Lilith herself had to help run the Kingdom with the Prince. She looked towards her children and smiled.

"Winston, it's a pleasure. I see your mother and you brought your younger brother." At this point, Eden was ushering the blushing, small child from her side. Amalia couldn't help but draw her attention elsewhere, too shy and uncomfortable to open her mouth before a nudge from her mother was all that was required for a small squeak to escape.

"H-Hello." Amalia greeted, glancing up towards her mother as her wings almost quivered with her nerves. How could she? She never spoke of another boy! Especially... Her face lit up once more into a vibrant shade of red, dulling as she took a breathe and prepared to introduce herself to the older, newer face. Finally taking courage to approach the boy, she curtsied. "I'm, ah, Amalia..."

It was clear from the amusement on Eden's face, she thought this entire situation to be almost... too precious.

Having been entranced by the Virian princess's wings, Darcy only noticed the smaller princess when she was nudged toward him. The boy stared at the little girl's wings and watched her approach him. He observed her every move, and took brief note of the nuances in her face. Something about her vibrant red pallor made the young Prince's face warm slightly in return. His hair raised upon hearing her voice, which sounded like wind chimes to his ears.

He took a step toward her and bowed. "I am Prince Darcy, second in line to the Caprian throne." Winston stifled his laughter. Princess Lilith exchanged hearty glances with Princess Eden. When Darcy lifted his head, and his dark eyes rested on the crystalline ones before him. "Pleasure to finally meet you, Princess Amalia."

Princess Lilith giggled. "Oh, Eden, if I didn't at least greet you formally, I'm afraid the little one wouldn't forgive me. He's much like his father, and maybe even more serious than he." Darcy looked up at his mother, confused at her demeanor. She rarely laughed like that in front of business officials. Winston could clearly tell that his younger brother was receiving mixed vibes.

"Well, I believe we have much to discuss," Princess Capricorn began. "Winston shall join us— he's looking forward to meeting your esteemed officials, once again." Darcy looked at his mother expectantly. "And you, my dear, will stay with Princess Amalia." His faced dropped. Before he could protest, Lilith bid Eden to proceed with their talks and assured Darcy he's in good hands. Winston sent a wink before walking off.

Darcy felt his blood thinning. He expected that he would learn some things about the Kingdom. Instead, he's stuck with a child. He turned to look at the Princess, a little downhearted. He, simply put, wasn't the greatest with other kids. But, this was a task given to him, and so it he must. The first obstacle is, how should he approach the figure before him. What should he say? He found himself gently tugging his hair, suddenly nervous. He desperately looked for a topic. "Do..." He started. "Does everyone in your family have wings?"

W-Wait, they were leaving?! Already?! They could of at least helped them by suggesting something to do...! Fiddle sticks, before she could even open her mouth, all three of the older parties were walking away, and off to go discuss, well, whatever they talked about.

Her mother normally just made her go explore outside somewhere to keep busy.

Eyes widening briefly as she watched the older boy tug his hair, shifting in her stance. "A-Um, no... Just my aunt, a cousin, my mom, and I..." Gosh diddly darn it! She could of tried to spin that off into something completely different, at least! Her face reddened once more as her wings ruffled and drooped, ever so slightly as her nerves got to her. Even with such grace, she'd never understand how her mother constantly had something to say.

But, maybe it was just her being more or less shy of such a cute little boy? Even now, she could hear her mother's laughter and her embarrassing comments that would surely make her crawl up and die at supper! "Your h-hair... it's a very pretty color." That soft, quiet little voice nearly squeaked.

True, she had never been with a child who was so close to her own age, even if they were a few years older, but she never got the chance to either. Her mother didn't exactly care for most business associates like how she cared for Princess Lilith so deeply. She even had made comments about naming her next child after the woman. It was odd, how her mother had gotten so attached.

"I... can show you around the island.. I-If you want, that is!" It was the least she could do. This island was possibly one of the more safer ones, considering it's size. Everyone looked out for each other, especially for the children. A harmless stroll to the island's more favorable locations wouldn't be so bad, as long as they made it back in time before their mothers worried. They at least had four or so more hours before the sun began to set, if he chose to go with her.
