Skylar looked around the magnificent hall and gasped at the beautiful crystal chandelier, the stunning polished floor and gaped at the extravagance. She was an orphan, an had just become of age and was deemed ‘acceptable’ to become a servant in the King’s Place.
“Wow….” Se breathed.
Skylar smiled sadly at his voice. “Hello…love.” She frowned. “It’s…its nearly time.”
He held her close. “I know….I know…”
He frowned reaching for her sadly
I hide my face in his chest as another guard knocked on the door “it’s time m’lady” he said loudly knowing I wasn’t going to come out
Skylar reached for him as well, biting back tears. “Trevor….” She whispered sadly.
Xavier held her shoulders. “Savannah….savannah no matter what happens. I will love you. No matter what you do…or what he does…./I/ will love you. This is your job…not your choice. I know that….”
He hit up and grabbed her in a hug tears dripping down his cheeks
I shake my head no”I can’t do this” I mumble tears dripping down my cheeks
Skylar broke down and whimpered, then started sobbing.
Xavier shook her shoulders “savannah. Savvy…I love you. Nothing will change that. We do this together.”
He cried “I-im so sorry” he sobbed out
I nod slightly as another knock came to the door “princess the king and queen are waiting on you along with your mother”
She shook her head, she was silently sobbing, unable to breathe. She cupped her hands over her mouth and let out a muffled cry.
He nodded and wiped her tears, fixing her smudged make up. “We can do this.”
He holds her close as a maid knocks on the door “prince Trevor it’s time!”
I nod as they open the door
Skylar quickly wiped her eyes and straightened herself. “Go….go I will follow. I will always follow you.”
Xavier gave her a last kiss and opened the door. “It’s time.”
He nods wiping his tears and going to the door and leaving
I get out of the carriage and look up at him waiting for him to lead me in
