In A Fortnight
stify for me, women and men who are willing to do anything, people I trust…when Charlotte herself has no choice but to admit your amorous relationship, I think then, it will be far too late to propose to me, Your highness. ”
His eyes widened with her threats, his blood boiling with the heat of his anger. Never had he felt so crossed in his entire life, yet so crucially helpless. It only served to make him livid, and he moved away from her for fear of his anger taking over.
He traced his steps to a large bench that sat in the middle of the green house, and his right hand cradled his forehead. Lady Sophia went on to examine the flowers with the faintest of smiles on her lips, his deep breaths like music to her ears.
”In a fortnight, ” he suddenly said, causing her ears to perk up. ”In a fortnight, I will make my decision. ”
She laughed sarcastically. ”I saw the security outside, Your highness. I believe you would have planned to completely cut me off from accessing the palace. ”
He shook his head. This was not the time to solve things like a warrior. ”I will give you a special pass with the royal stamp. Give me a fortnight. ”
She turned to him. ”When is your wedding with Lady Lisette? ”
He closed his eyes. ”In a month. ”
She smiled. ”A fortnight it is, then. Let me have the stamp and I will be on my way. ”
He did not reply, his body feeling suddenly weak and his heart even weaker, as he drew a plain paper from the large stacks of books he kept on a special shelf in the greenhouse.
It was his private scenery, books, ink and flowers, then for who looked close enough, a black sword in a far corner of the room.
He quickly wrote, then stamped it and folded it. He dropped it on the bench, then moved away a little.
She said nothing as she walked to it, then just as she leaned to pick it, his hand wrapped around her arm, stopping her.
”Do not even think of doing anything before that time expires. I will not forgive you for any foul play. ”
She smiled and pulled her arm away, leaning away from him. ”At times like these, your highness, you should be grateful not everyone is like you. I will keep my word. ”
His brows furrowed at her insinuation of him being a man who did not keep his word, but before he could ask her about it, she walked out of the green house, her hair slightly knocked off by the subtle breeze.
Prince Xander held his head, his heartbeat gradually slowing. Suddenly, the door opened again, and he looked up.
Lady Sophia was peeking in, her smile small. ”I forgot another condition, Your highness. ”
He bit down on his lips.
”During the fortnight…You should stay away from the servant. I can not guarantee what will happen if you refuse to. ”
Before he could say a word, she had closed the door again, leaving him with a broken ego.
