Ok this is the prequel to "You don't have to say you love me"No I haven't canceled "You don't have to say you love me" it's still in the process. I've just caught a bad case of the writers block and now I'm a senior in high school so I got lots of homework, so chappies might come out real slow, hopefully I'll be done with both stories by the time I graduate, hopefully. crosses fingers

You had me at Hello
She sat on her balcony, curled up in her favorite chair, watching the tide come in as the sunset over the ocean, the colors dancing like the swirling dresses of a cotillion ball. Despite the beauty of the sunset, a silent tear trickled down her tanned cheek.
The ocean wind blew her dark black hair, the same color as her father's, across her face, shining in the golden light.
She wiped her tear off on her lovely green gown, the same color as her eyes, her mother's eyes she reminisced blandly. She thought back on her life, looking for a solution to the Faore problem. King Aiden was going to invade.
He was only twenty-two and he already conquered Gialla and Tira. And now he wanted Orkney, she thought.
Well he isn't going to get it, not without a fight. He's so pompous, sitting out there on his ship – no – war barge. He wants peace. PHA. He was here to avenge his father's honor.
King Alden, his ass of a father, had died three months ago and raised his son to be just like him. Mamma should have just let him have Auntie Indun when he asked for her, I don't even like her anyway, she's just a big pain and it would have saved me a lot of sleepless nights. She waved away her unkind thoughts and continued to look for a way out of this mess.
Her name is Queen Lorelei of Orkney, daughter of Lady Lynne, and King Rand. Lady Lynne came to Orkney on a mission. King Rand's youngest sister, Aunt Indun, was captured by King Alden of Faore.
He wanted Princess Indun for his bride even though he already was married. Lady Lynne, having devoted herself to helping women in need, heard of his treachery and how he treated his wife and young son, the currently invading Aiden. And king Rand was willing to pay any price to get his youngest sister back.
Lorelei's mother decided to rescue the princess herself and make a fool of Alden at the same time. Disguised as a Belly Dancer, she drugged him, and stole the Princess from right under his nose at his very own victory banquet.
He never forgot her trickery and swore that he would one day have his revenge. And now his son's wrath has fallen upon me. Thanks ma. Upon Lynne's return to Orkney she was given much praise and many riches. And my parents fell madly in love.
They were married one month after Princess Indun's rescue. People said that they would have many beautiful children, but tragedy was written in the stars.
One month after Lorelei was born Orkney's beloved queen, weakened by an old, infected wound, died from fever. The King was so saddened by his love's death that he sent all her things back to her father in Aloand.
He sent away her almost-invisibility-cloak, her shield, her sword, even hairbrushes, everything that reminded him of his dear wife.
He had even wanted to send Lorelei away, but he couldn't, he loved his daughter too much already. But finally he just couldn't stand the constant reminder of his lost love.
He sent her away when she was ten to her grandfather, Lord Domin of Sirile, in the country of Aloand who took her in under the pretense of furthering her academic studies. But secretly he was training her against her father's wishes to be a fierce warrior just like her mother Lady Lynne.
On Lorelei's 18th birthday she returned home to Orkney, riding her mother's old reliable white charger Drasil. Lord Domin came tearing out of the manor just before she left, bearing his daughter's shield and armor.
"Just in case." He said. "My dear daughter would have wanted for her kitten to have it." He had nicknamed his granddaughter Kitten when she was born, because she had curled up like a cat when she went to sleep the first time.
They embraced each other tightly, packed the things in her saddle bag, and said their farewells.
Soon after her 19th Birthday Lorelei's father passed away, many said of a broken heart that had never healed. He never really got over his wife's death and now, suddenly, his daughter was Queen. And I get to deal with Aiden. Wonderful, just peachy!
Suddenly one of the ministers of defense burst in and ran up to her, almost knocking Tiffany, her maid, over.
"Sir Malcolm, Malcolm calm down what is it?" She stood up to greet him.
"My lady," he panted, kneeling down on one knee. "My Queen, it's King Aiden He's made a move, he..."
