”Iris, ” Iris corrected her. ”I am far from a Queen. ” The maids looked at one another but still nodded.

”Would you like to change? We have filled the wardrobe with clothes for Your Grace. If anything does not fit we will send it for adjustments at once. ”

Iris turned away and proceeded to look with the wardrobe. Her eyes widened. She had never seen so many clothes in her life. ”What is your name? ”

”Nina, is my name if it please, Your Grace. ” With a sigh Iris pulled out a pair of pants and a shirt. They looked like they should have been for riding but considering Iris had never ridden… The shirt was rather loose cut and pale blue in color. It was far softer than anything else she had touched before. She hated it. She had thought of asking for her clothes back but what were the chances that those clothes were not already burned. Doubtful. She yanked off the gown and pulled off the stocking. The maids once again gasped. It was not because she bore herself to them without care. No, that was a rather common occurrence when it came to ladies and their maids. The thing that shocked them was something they had not been able to notice under all the dirt and bruises she had before. Across her back were long scars. Another scar on her shoulder, and her legs.

Her scales were also on full display the true mark of a Mer. Like purple fire they started midway down her back. They formed the shape similar to birds flying. They spread out as they went lower. The light played across the scales of purple, blue, and teal. The maids had seen them before but now they had envy. Before those scales had been lackluster. Now they were priceless gems they should be so blessed to see. The scales opened at the arch at her back wrapping around her front and dripping into the top of her belly button. Without the stocking her toes could spread out. The thin membrane of skin between each toe, clear to see with every touch of the sun. Iris frowned looking down at her toes. They had clipped her nails. No doubt to prevent her from ripping the stocking during her sleep.
