THE ROYAL MAID
(The woman after his heart)
King Roland’s POV cont’d ♥️
‘Is this a joke Reynold?? Is this a bloody joke?!’..I asked with my temper rising gradually and my brother sighed deeply..
‘I have fought more than one battle for you brother and as a token of—
‘You have lands Reynold!! That should be enough token and why on Earth would you want a maid for a wife?! Mother isn’t going to agree to this!’..I yelled..
‘Well mother doesn’t have to know!! We’ll arrange a secret marriage and then I take her back to the camp with me? Have you seen how blue her eyes are brother?? She’s a goddess’..He replied and I clenched my fists..
He wants Alondria??..
The woman after my heart??..
No way is he going to have her over my dead body!!..
‘You can’t have her and that’s final Reynold’..I said flippantly dismissing him and he grunted..
‘I will have her brother.I will have her’..
Alondria’s POV ♥️
‘Seems like the young prince fancies you Alo’..Clara whispered into my ear as we swept the dried up leaves from the courtyard..
I glanced over and Prince Reynold’s eyes met with mine and I didn’t hesitate to look away..
‘Hmmm he’s handsome but the king is way more handsome’..She added and I gulped hard as the prince wanted to approach me but was stopped my Princess Reana and her entourage…
‘Your highness’..She bowed and surprisingly he frowned.
‘I am Princess Reana of Valeria your highness and future wife to your brother’..She replied and Clara laughed softly..
‘Future wife?? The King doesn’t even like her’..She whispered and I shushed her up..
‘Ohh it’s a pleasure my princess but right now there’s someone I want to speak to’.. Prince Reynold said and excused himself immediately only for him to approach me..
I gulped hard as he kissed my hand in front of everyone and couldn’t help but wish for the ground to open and swallow me whole..
What is this??..
Oh no no no!!..
‘You’re the Alondria I’ve heard so much about’..He said..
‘You…Your highness i..I..I beg your pardon??”..I stuttered and he smiled.
‘My men who arrived in the battlefield told me tales of how a slave maid has captured the hearts of many men in the castle.With her soft silk skin and warm blue eyes and gorgeous golden hair I just had to come see for myself’..
‘You…Your highness please i—
‘You don’t have to worry dear Alondria.I have already asked for your hand in marriage and my brother is stubborn but he’s going to bless it and I’ll make sure of it’..He added..
‘I want to make you my wife Alondria and a free born again’..
