Brenden approached the castle with an invitation in his hand.  Oil greased his ebony hair, a and tight-fitting black and tailored white satin covered his body. He didn’t like it. It was rather embarrassing. He handed the invitation to the hostess. The invitation was real and he hadn’t needed to forge it. There were plenty of them cycling through the Nobles Guild. Everyone who was anyone wanted to be a part of the event, and all Brenden had to do was intercept a few parchments heading to lesser nobles.  “Thank you, and welcome to the Lady Quinn’s engagement party,” the hostess said. Brenden clinched his teeth, put on a fake smile, and nodded.  He swept past her and slipped inside. People lingered everywhere inside the ballroom. The chatter that filled the hall clashed with the music as guests danced and swept each other across the polished floor.   Brenden preferred to keep to himself. Instead of picking a dance partner from the collection of lonely maidens lined against the wall, sitting, and waiting for a potential suitor, he simply observed.  The king and queen stood on an elevated platform behind tables draped in red tablecloths. Elegant golden bowls and plates covered the platform, allowing the higher nobility to dine in relative peace away from the others, but also showcase themselves as being superior.  Brenden’s nose wrinkled.  Nobles. Too arrogant for their own good. Brenden glanced at them for an instant, but it was long enough to see the queen lift her wine glass and glance at him. His cheek twisted, and he heat filled his face. He wished he could have argued a better way to infiltrate the castle…but he’d been overruled.  Security would be tight on the outside of the ball room with the celebration going on, but he could have managed to sneak around. He knew he could, but it was insisted that he come in the front.  Quinn walked past him, long white hair draping past her bosom against her dark blue silk dress. Her forehead and eyes were powdered with blue and her cheeks glistened with a light purple haze. She looked stunning. Brenden tried to look away, but he found himself caught in her gaze as she turned to study him.  “Lady Quinn.” He bowed. She held her hand out, which he took in his own to kiss her knuckles. A strange sensation came over him, a tingle, and a spark of electricity. “I don’t believe we have met. Who are you?” “Bren—” He coughed into his shoulder. “Brenden.” Her eyes twinkled as she squeezed his hand. She leaned close to him and whispered in his ear. “It’s a pleasure to meet you, Brenden. I hope to see you around again.” With one last appraising look at him, she turned, and walked away. Brenden closed his eyes and gulped. He was a fool. Not...

The sound of hooves thundering down the main road rang in Elise’s ears. She jumped up from her spot on the ground. A summer breeze wafted through, sweeping ebony hair around her face as she peered downward.   Sure enough, it was an armored messenger, astride a horse, with a red banner in his hand. Elise raced through the garden to the road at the end of the grounds of Devynshire Castle. Bright sunlight cascaded through the trees, highlighting every ebony wave as she bounded down the grassy, poppy-littered hill. “Elise,” Lady Devyn, shouted after her, shielding her eyes from her spot on the blanket sprawled across the grass. “Where are you going?” “The messenger!” Elise shouted to her mother. “He’s here.” As she glanced over her shoulder, she caught a glimpse of her mother’s smirk, as she waved her on. At eighteen, this would be her last year of seclusion from the world. Today, she just wanted to be a young lady, fuss over what elaborate gown she would wear, and try her charms on handsome suitors from all over the realm.  Despite the fact that several eligible young men would be in attendance, her sights were set on only one—one very special prince. Practically giddy, she grinned to herself. To think, she might have her choice of husband in just a few short days. A giggle escaped her lips as she skidded to a stop, right before the messenger who leaped from his horse and gave her a bow with his head.  “Good day, Flint,” Elise said with a slight curtsy. Flint cleared his throat. “Good day to you, my lady.” “Do you have something for me?” Elise’s eyes peered at his brown satchel, hoping to catch a letter or parcel with the crest of the kingdom of Arundell on it. “Hmmm,” Mr. Fulton said, rummaging through his bag. “I don’t believe I saw anything for you today.” Shoulders slumping, Elise sucked her teeth. “Nonsense. You wouldn’t be here without a message,” she said, leaving the plush grass, to stand on the hard-packed dirt road that led through the forest and to town.  “Aye, I have a message for your mother,” he said. “It can’t be!” Forgetting decorum, she stood right before Flint and dug her hands into the bag.  Instead of scolding her, he chuckled. “All right! All right,” he said and pulled a cream-colored envelope with the Arundell seal of a golden lion. “You scoundrel!” Elise took the envelope, a smile spreading from ear-to-ear. He handed her another letter, and with a giggle, she ran back toward the castle.  “You’re welcome,” Flint shouted after her with a laugh. Looking over her shoulder, Elise shouted back. “Thank you!” She gathered her skirts in her hand and quickened her speed. She made her way to the front entrance, her heart racing with anticipation.  Her mother sat on...
