As I walked through the doors to the throne room I prayed the news my dad has to tell was not that or horrid. My name is Princess Isabella of England. I am seventeen years old and unmarried. This always angered my dad Charles. I know a princess should be beautiful, but i was a plain burnett with round brown eyes, and a heart shaped face. I stand at a short 5'4 and am quite slim, with mild curves in all the right spots. As the Heavy oak doors opened before me, I prayed with all my heart.
"My dear child there you are." My father smiled at with a pleased look in his eyes. I knew that this was bad for me. Sadly i was raised to do what my father told me without question and with back talk.
"Good Marrow King. The sun casts a warm glow upon the lands today." I was hoping to bring him off any subject he wanted to talk of, and normally it would but not today. Charlie smiled wider.
"Yes Bella, it is a gorgeous day, to get ready for a wedding tomorrow." He grinned from ear to ear. His words brought a frightened look to my face and rather unlady like at that. As I composed myself he finished. "I have finally decided a suitable husband for you. He has agreed with great pleasure. His name is Prince Edward from the Cullen Clan of Whales. He will be here tomorrow. You will marry him Bella." I could hear the throne doors open but could hold my tongue no longer.
"Father! YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS! THAT BOORISH BARBARIAN! HE IS KNOWN FOR HIS BRUTAL AND VIAL TROOPS! HE IS SAID TO HAVE KILLED A MAN JUST BY GLARING AT HIM! AND YOU'VE AGREED TO GIVE ME TO THAT MERCILESS PIG. HOW COULD YOU!?" I was flaming and I swore that steam was pouring out my ears.
"ISABELLA MERIE YOU WILL NOT ARGUE WITH ME ON THIS AND YOU WILL NOT RAISE YOU'RE VOICE AT ME IN SUCH AN UNLADY LIKE WAY." I was in shock, my father never yelled at me once. Then again i never yelled like that before. The rumors of this Edward's brutality made me want to die. "You are dismissed." he told me much kinder this time. I curtsied and walk to go out into the courtyard. I was going to forever loath the world for the fact I had to take a Barbadian for a bridegroom, were did my father get the advantage in this. Then like a brick wall it hit me. Edward's warriors could better that of the legendary Spartans, and he was using me so he could call on them at will. As I got to my favorite spot in the middle of all the flowers I feel to my knees and cried. It felt like hours, but I didn't care, I just wanted to die. Death would be a welcoming compared to being married to such a scoundrel.
It angered me the whole way to England of my father's arranged marriage. I was the leader of our armies and that is all this King wanted. As me and my two brothers got to the gate of the castle they just looked at me with sad eyes and stone faces. They knew I had no use for a wife. I was hardly ever at home. And the idea of being married to a stuck up, snobby English Princess was unbearable. We got through the gates with no problem, but all I heard from people was of the Princess Isabella's beauty. From the sounds of it she could rival that of my sister-in-law's, and would she be mad, the thought made me smile. We were at large dark oak door before us, and I held my breath. There was a thin curvy girl, with brown hair flowing down her back.
"Father! YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS! THAT BOORISH BARBARIAN! HE IS KNOWN FOR HIS BRUTAL AND VIAL TROOPS! HE IS SAID TO HAVE KILLED A MAN JUST BY GLARING AT HIM! AND YOU'VE AGREED TO GIVE ME TO THAT MERCILESS PIG. HOW COULD YOU!?" She yelled at him, her voice like silver bells, I had only to assume she was speaking of me. I saw Jasper and Emmet about to fall over at all of her objections that's when the King spoke.
"ISABELLA MERIE YOU WILL NOT ARGUE WITH ME ON THIS AND YOU WILL NOT RAISE YOU'RE VOICE AT ME IN SUCH AN UNLADY LIKE WAY." he yelled. I just wanted to hug the poor girl "You are dismissed." he told her much kinder this time. I as she left I didn't even catch a glimpse of her face. "Oh my, You must be Princes Edward, Emmet, and Jasper. I am quite sorry for my daughters outburst. I promise it will not happen again."
"In light of the event to come, there is no reason for apology Your Highness." I said Emmet, Jasper, and I bowing politly.
"I am sure you three must be very tired for such a long journey, if you would like I have rooms set up for you." I looked to see Jasper and Emmet about to drift as they quickly agreed.
"If it would be fine with you Sir, I would like to look around a bit before going to sleep." I tried to sound gracious. I hope I did because offending a King was not a good thing.
"Of course, when you feel like it you may simply ask one of the servent were to go and they will show you." Thank god he wasn't unhappy.
"I thank you honorable King." I bowed again and left out the same door I saw my future bride take. I wonder around the castle looking for her, giving up all hope when I saw her in a beautiful courtyard. She was sitting on her knees in the middle of colorful flowers, and from the sound of it, she was crying. Slowly I walked over to her, placing my hand gently on her shoulder, not wanting to break her. She froze for a second, then jumped in the air and hit my hard chest with her fragile body. I wrapped my arms around her making sure she wouldn't fall before letting go. Her eyes looked up at me and we both took a step back. She was even more beautiful than the silly rumors gave her credit for. She had long brown hair that ended just above her waist, a heart shaped face, and full red lips that I prayed I would be able to kiss, as I look into her round warm chocolate pools that were her eyes I seemed to get lost. She stood at roughly 5'4 and quite slim, with great curve that drew me in.
"I am quite sorry for that. You simply startled me." her musical voice causing me to cling to every word. I was getting lost.
"It is not your fault, I shouldn't have crept up on you. Might I wonder to ask, why such a lovely Young lady as yourself, is crying in the middle of such an elegant courtyard?" I raised my hand to wipe away a stray tear.
"I know what your thinking. Poor little princess, she can't know anything of about true soar. Sometimes I think people of little means are much luckier." I tilted my head as she said this. She didn't say poor people, no, she seemed to say it nicer. "At least they get to marry for love. My father expects me to WED the most feared man across all of England. I haven't even seen this man, I've only heard horrid tails, and I can already loath him." I was shocked, sure I took the most feared part as a compliment, but she only knew rumors, not me.
"What if you were to hear rumors that were more true?" I was hoping to at least give me a little chance. She looked at me with her brown eyes wide.
"I would give them a chance, I guess. I can't really judge anyone, but I have many doubts you'll change my mind." at least she was honest, even though it hurt.
"Well, every battle he was in, he fought for his family. He has a kind heart, but since he is always in battle, no one sees it or gives him the chance to show. He once saved his brother from a wild bore while nursing a broken arm." I laughed at the memory, Jasper had drank for to much that night.
"Well, every battle he was in, he fought for his family. He has a kind heart, but since he is always in battle, no one sees it or gives him the chance to show. He once saved his brother from a wild bore while nursing a broken arm." as he finished i hoped Edward was as nice as he said. "You see Princess, I too have heard many rumors of you, some saying that you ripped out the heart of many men that have try to court you. I have also heard tails of your beauty, and I must say your far more lovely than they gave you credit." I was in complete shock. i knew nothing of him.
"Might I ask whom you are good sir?" I was about to go insane if i didn't fink out. I thought i knew everyone in court.
"You will find out quite soon milady." He took a bow and left before i could say another word. HOW DARE HE?!
