Once upon a time╒╝

"Do you still like me?"

I hesitated to answer his thought, feeling my stomach sink into my knees

"Yea...I've never stopped liking you"

"Hm...You've just been acting like it..."

His piercing eyes the color of crimson, looking right trough me as if I were non existent... Maybe he was right, maybe I never liked him at all… but for the sake of my kingdom, things like love and liking… their trivial matters

"That's a lie…"

For the sake of my land, for my honor

"I've always liked you and only you…"

And most importantly, for the protection of my family secret…

"You are the only one that matters to me… my liking for you has grown to the extent of… of … love… I Love You."

I must protect everything that's dear to me…

"Hm… Then prove it"

I must stop this up coming destruction before it ever happens…

"Marry Me."

Even if it means, destroying my own happiness...
