*About five years later*
Cuen had just entered in the room when Raven hugged him. "Surprise! Happy birthday!" Everyone else is surrounding a single table full of presents and a large teir cake. The cake has blue frosting with his favorite candies decorating all the teirs. The cake had small candles going around every teir with a single chocolate heart in the middle on top with a chocolate candle coming out of the top of it. The cake is surrounded by presents from everyone besides two people. Raven smiles and looks at Cuen. "Make a wish." She steps back into Robin's embrace. Cuen walks over to the table and blows out all the candles and everyone cheers. The other De Noirs yell about opening presents, so he sits in his chair and they bring them to him one at a time.
He got a lot of useful things and a few that he wanted but when it came to the end he was disappointed by his son. Raven smiles and steps up infront of his chair. "Me and Robin have a combined gift. With your permission Sir, we wish to be wed." Cuen smiles at them and stands up. "You all have done a great surprise. But Im afraid that this is even better news. Now with the union of Raven and Robin will take place in about a week's-" The doors are thrown open and a De Noir who was sent to watch over the other MerryWeather brother and his daughter had just burst into the room. "My Lord, forgive the interuption but I bring news. The Moon Princess's father is dead and the funeral is to take place in a week's time." Cuen smiles brightly then turns to his family members. "Forgive the interuption everyone but their wedding will take place in two days time. Robin, son, if I may have a quick word."
"Yes father. I'll return soon Ray. Save me a peice of the cake." Kisses her cheek then follows his father. "Son I have amission for you that I hope you won't disappoint me in. Go to the funeral of the Merryweather and get the princess. She must not reach the Merryweather estate. Do this and Ill make sure your bride has all that she needs and wants to live and she wont have to be in anymore fights." Robin looks at Ceun then looks down. "I'd like it better if she was by my side during the fights. I know where she is; plus she loves fighting and trapping more then most the men." Ceun nods and smiles and pats his son on his shoulder. "Well then let's hope I get a grandson befor the mother hurts herself." Raven comes out with a big piece of cake loaded with his favorite candies. "Sir for you I do hope you enjoy it. It's your favorite. Oh and I'll hurt Robin with my traps before I hurt myself."
Robin smirks then follows her back into the great hall for the rest of the celebration. Ceun watches as the music starts to play on how Raven pulls Robin to dance with her. He gives a small smile and mumbles to himself, "She's got you wrapped around her finger son. But she is a great match for you. Treat her well, Robin, for your mother's sake." Raven smiles as she watches Robin watch her dance before he pulls her to him and kisses her. Raven smiiles and while he is distracted takes off his hat and runs away smiling. "I got your hat Robin." Robin looks frustrated but everyone knows that he enjoys it. "Come on Raven, You just gave me that one." He nearly caught her and she squeals then starts laughing.
Ceun takes some of his wife's Stationary and writes out and invite for Robin's and Raven's wedding then makes it nice and neat and calls for one of his men. "Take this to the village disguise yourself so they don't notice you then have them pass this on to MerryWeather." The man bows and exits the room. Ceun plan is falling into place, as soon as Raven and Robin are married then he has more leverage on his son. He was going to win this game and he knew how to lay his cards. He'd wait until after Raven and Robin were married then have her locked up Telling all that she is a Merryweather. Then his price dolt of a sin being lied to by his bride will throw himself into his work. Raven makes Robin chases her back to his room. She smiles and giggles as she sits on his bed. "Robin, I need to tell you something. Something that may change your opinion of me and possibly ruin our marriage." Raven looks down at her hands and looks scared.
"Raven, you can tell me anything you know you can. Nothing will change my opinion of you. Even if you were a Merryweather." Raven looks up and looks and tears fall from her face. "My birthname is Raven Louise Merryweather. I can't stand my cousin. " Robin looks at her aa she looks back down at her hands. There is a silance for a good amount of time until Raven stands up facing away from Robin. "Please say something. Anything, just please speak to me." She looks at him and he can see the pain written on her face. Robin looks away from her and says, "I could never love a Merryweather." Raven slaps him then starts to walk out of the room. "I'll promise you this Robin De Noir, You shall never see me again until a Moon Princess lefts the curse from the valley."
Raven turns and runs out of the De Noir castle heart broken and scarred for now she has no where to turn but the forest. Robin was still in his room wondering if he mad the right choice. Then he had to do the hardest thing that he knew of. His heart felt heavy and broken but he had to go inform his father. He knocks on Cuen's private study's door. "Enter." Robin steps in and Cuen smiles at his only son. "Robin, this is a surprise. Is there something you wish to discuss about your wedding arrangements?" Robin shakes his head no then stands in front of his father's desk. "Raven ran from the castle and I refuse to marry a Merryweather." Cuen stands up clearly mad. Robin studies his father, a short man with a long tended beard and hair. His dark brown eyes filled with rage and pain. "You idoit! She left that life behind her. The day she joined our clan she became a De Noir. You just stripped her of the only home she had left!" Cuen sent Robin ahead to do his mission and sat back down behind his desk.
He never intended to get this upset with his son but for some reason the fact that he turned her away hurt Cuen. He actually was hoping to get a grandchild before he died. Now that his son had turned away the one person that was willing to give him a grandchild. Robin had better not mess up on his mission because he is already in mirky waters. 'That poor girl, foever to live alone in the woods. Robin, you dolt you just lost a great chance to have the best canidate for your wife.' Raven trips and falls as she heads into the woods. She gets back up and runs for a good while but as soon as she got near the forbidden cliff something happened.
