The world around me slowly spun as I looked out across the main hall. It wasn't just the fact that I was carrying the High King's child, but the fact that I was utterly in love with him, and he could never know. It was a mistake that I will never regret, although I'm pretty sure this isn't what he is going to want to hear from a Lady in Waiting to his younger sister Queen Susan the Gentle, despite the fact that that I'm also Susan's best friend in the whole world.
My name is Morgan Elizabeth Fahy. I was born to Grenian and Freya Fahy. When I was little, we lived in a small village in Anvard, Archenland. My father is a blacksmith who moved us to Cair Paravel when I was twelve years old to work as the Kings and Queens's personal blacksmith. And my mother is a seamstress who is now the head seamstress for Queen Lucy the Valiant. I was brought up as a maid for Queen Susan since I was brought here, and have loved it since I started.
Now that I am eighteen, I am one of the Queen's few trusted Ladies in Waiting. She can never be too careful. I hope that she won't fire me because of what Peter and I did. He was drunk, and I was just helping him to get to bed for goodness sake. And he was the one that initially…oh dear I'm getting ahead of myself here. Let me start over.
My name is Morgan Elizabeth Fahy and I am pregnant with High King Peter's first child. And he doesn't even know it yet.
