A/N: Hello everybody! I promised you a sequel to Robin of Moonacre Valley and here it is! My special thanks go to MissBrownClue13, who gave me the brilliant idea for this story. Just a quick warning: this story is not from Robin's point of view, like Robin of Moonacre. I wanted to try out Maria's point of view. I hope you like it!

Maria POV

Three years had passed since I first came to Moonacre Valley after the death of my father. When I first arrived here, I discovered that I was the Moon Princess and had to remove the curse from Moonacre. The past three years had been happy, prosperous ones. Moonacre was restored to its former glory.

Loveday and my uncle had gotten married a year after the curse was removed; I had been the maid of honour and Robin had been the best man. They lived together in Moonacre Manor. Even though Loveday was technically my aunt, I still just calleed her Loveday. I lived with them, in the same room as I had lived in three years ago. I was getting a quite a bit too tall for the door but I didn't want to give it up. Miss Heliotrope still lived with us at Moonacre. She had turned down Digweed's proposal for now, but he was still courting her.

Robin's father seemed to have given up on his hate for the Meriwethers, and had apologized for his behaviour. We were on good terms with each other – he even invited us over for dinner once or twice. Robin and I were still very much in love. He lived with his father in the Du Noir castle, but he came to visit me nearly every day

"Can you believe it's been three years since we first met, Robin? I feel like I've known you forever!" I said, sighing happily. Robin and I sat leaning back against a tree where the grounds of Moonacre manor turned into the Du Noir forest. It was the same tree where he first told me he loved me. He had carved our initials into the trunk of it, surrounded by a heart.

"I know how you feel Maria." Robin agreed, jokingly saying. "I'm starting to get tired of you!"

"Hey!" I laughed, hitting him lightly on the shoulder.

"You wound me, my lady" he said playfully.

"My apologies, kind sir." I said, playing along and laughing. "But seriously Robin, so much has happened in three years. I'm nearly as tall as you now! And I'm turning 16 in a few days. Uncle and Loveday are throwing me a party to celebrate! Can you believe it?"

"That's great Maria! Am I invited to this big party?" Robin asked.

"Of course you are Robin. I'm surprised you had to ask. I was hoping that you would escort me." I said, looking up at him with puppy-dog eyes.

"Maria! Don't give me that look." Robin said, groaning. "I'll escort you, you know I will. But I'm warning you, I don't know how to dance."

"Here, I'll teach you." I said, jumping up and pulling Robin to his feet. I put one of his hands on my waist and held the other in mine. I began humming a waltz, taking a step. Robin moved with me. Soon we were whirling around the field to the tune of the waltz I was humming. We finally collapsed, exhausted and laughing.

"I thought you said you couldn't dance!" I panted, rolling over to look at Robin.

"I didn't know I could." He answered, lying on his back and looking up at the sky. "It must be the expertise of my amazing partner."

"Robin, I'm hardly an expert!"

"Sure you are, princess! You are an expert at everything that you do!"

"Flatterer."

"Is it working?" he asked, looking at me with a mischievous look in his eyes.

"Maybe a bit." I said, leaning over and giving him a kiss. Then, I stood up and said "Come on, let's go. It's getting dark and Loveday will be looking for me." The sky was already darkening as the sun set below the mountains.

"Your wish is my command princess." Robin smirked, jumping to his feet and giving a fancy little bow. Then suddenly I felt my feet fly out from under me.

"Robin, put me down!" I shrieked. Robin had picked me up and was now holding me in his arms as if I weighed nothing at all.

"Sorry Princess, no can do." Robin said teasingly, walking across the field, me still in his arms. "You might strain yourself from the long walk."

"I can walk across the field just fine!" I protested. He ignored me, carrying me across the field anyways. He finally set me down gently on the steps to the manor, kissing me lightly on my forehead.

"Goodnight, princess." He said before turning and disappearing into the night. I stared out at the field for a minute longer before going inside. Loveday was waiting in the hall for me.

"Maria! Where were you? You missed dinner. We've waited for nearly a half hour before finally deciding to eat without you."

"Sorry Loveday" I replied, smiling sheepishly. "I was with Robin in the field. I asked him to the party."

"What did he say?"

"He agreed to take me, but warned me about his horrible dancing skills." I said laughingly. "So I taught him to waltz."

"Wait, wait, wait." Loveday said, holding up her hand. "You taught Robin how to waltz?" I nodded, confused. "And he let you?" Loveday continued. I nodded again. She shook her head and laughed. "You really have a hold on him don't you?"

"I don't know what you mean Loveday." I replied, confused.

"Never mind." She said, "But, just so you know, I think Robin loves you more than he says."

"I love him too." I answered.

"I know. Now go on off to bed, I'll have Marmaduke Scarlet bring you up a tray of food."

"Yes Loveday."I said, kissing her cheek and turning towards the stairs. "Goodnight." I went up the stairs to my room, pausing in front of the doorway to look at the painting of the first Moon Princess as I did every night. Instead of smiling at me as she had done since I found the Moon Pearls and returned them to the sea, she frowned and shook her head desperately, and I had a strange feeling that something horrible was about to happen.
