NEOLA

"You know full well that Elle deserves explanation for the way you acted right? You left her again for the second time." I whisper shout at him as I held unto his waist, hanging on for dear life, not risking anyone to hear our conversation as we passed by the royal gates. He has to reconcile with his sister since she is the only family he have. Plus, he accepted the fact that he wanted to have her back.

A couple of media men began swarming our ride and I pulled Luke's coat, trying not to fall as Midnight began kicking and whinnying like a horse.

Oh, right. He's a horse.

I was about to take a glance when a flash of camera blinded me for a second before I hear the wooden doors locked. Galloping further inside the grand hall, the trumpets where blown, signaling our arrival. There are so many guest: royalties dressed in extravagant clothing, princesses descending the carriage yet soon I found myself looking back at my brother, his eyes glinting with mirth as he held Elle's hand and Jacob at the other.

"They are here? I thought we're just going to meet the officials and the other villagers? Now is your chance to talk to Elle. I mean, it could also be your grandfather inviting them--"

"Will you just shut it for a minute? You ask to many questions that it is becoming quite irritating." He snapped at me before pulling my hands off his coat and jumping down from the horse. A little hurt of his reaction, I duck my head in shame. We walk side by side, my arms interlocked with his as we went inside the room. I could feel my face scrunching up as the tears threatened to fall but then his hands halted them. He pulled my face up and sigh, "I will try to figure out the words I will say to her. For now, we will have to act normal and let grandpa believe that we've settled everything. We will act it the way we have planned. I wanted to crush his hopes of marrying me off. I'm sorry for snapping at you awhile ago. I am just overwhelmed. This is too much for me too."

I just nodded at him, carefully he reached for my hand as he help me down. The crowd suddenly applauded. Stunned, I plastered a smile. I glance around, looking at all those unfamiliar faces and the makeshift hall. Flowers are strewn everywhere their fragrance are quite overwhelming making me feel like I am walking inside a perfume factory.

We walk side by side, my arms interlocked with his as we pass through the royal guards and the thick crowd of guest who have waited for our arrival.

I sucked in a deep breath as Luke pulled me closer and we both approach the king. "Oh, there you are, " he laughed, Luke bowed down and I curtsied. The king smiled at me and held unto Luke's shoulder, whispering at his ear.

"Yes, grandfather. I know full well of my obligation." Luke bowed once again before directing me towards the direction of Gabriel and Elle. "Elleana

ining given to a child."

"Watch your mouth, you bitch, " I snapped, earning a few curious stares from the table. Luke glared at me and over his shoulder, I could see Mia smirking. Rising from my seat, I sneered, "You, quit smiling like an innocent angel because I know full well that you are just prancing around with your pink fluffy dress--"

"LOISA!"

"SILENCE!"

The voice of Luke and the king boomed making me stopped short. I directed my glare at Luke as I avoided the stare coming from everyone in the table. "Mademoiselle Mia, sorry for what Lady Loisa said. It is just that--"

"No, my king. Lady Loisa just said what she thought and it is wrong for Mia to assume that Loisa had not had a proper training." The queen suggested, her voice coming from the other end of the table making me realised that she have been there ever since the beginning.

"My queen, she is not suppose to talk like--"

"My king, Mia isn't talking politely which is why--"

"Grandpa, Grandma, " Luke whispered in a cool but serious tone making both of them stare at their grandson. "Mia, what my Grandma said was true and I accept what my Grandpa stated that Loisa have spoken ill of you, too. Both of you has assumed wrong of each other. Loisa, I would like you to proceed to your room. Dinner will be delivered to you after." I glared at my hands to stop myself from crying and grudgingly followed the maid up the stairs and to my room.

After closing the door behind me, I collapsed on the bed and cried. Not knowing why I feel so betrayed and jealous at the same time that Luke is also being pursued by another woman. I guess both of them should marry each other, both royals, both of them stupid, both pathetic.

Throwing the covers off the bed, I deposited my gown on the floor. I settled on the bed not caring about the dinner that was delivered nor the knock that had echoed as soon as I close my eyes.
