Today determined my future. Whether I would return home a Victor or lose the throne.

I was convinced Maisy would fight for what she thought we shared but still, I could not be so sure.

I had to be one step ahead.

Swallowing my last pill, I headed outside.

Spencer was waiting for me just outside.

The man was eager to get me out of his life as quickly as he could.

"The horse is outside and I prepared some food in case you get hungry."

I sent him a warm smile I managed to muster. If Maisy was going to do anything, She had to do it now.

Sh*t, I cursed silently when I realized she wasn't coming out. She backed down and at the wrong moment. Everything I had hoped for, my high ships came crashing down.

The walk of shame followed each step lead him closer to the mare.

I contemplated hitting Spencer with any object I could find.

"You're a Clarke after all." My father's haunting voice echoed.

I took a deep breath and reached into my sac where my trusty sledge hammer resided. I planned my next move. I had to be hard and quick, Any little slip up could cost me everything.

"Wait!" Maisy stopped me.

I gave a malevolent smile then turned to her.

"What's wrong?" Her father quizzed but her eyes remained on me. I could see their pain.

Poor, poor Maisy.

"I have to tell you something father." Maisy disclosed, sucking in a deep breath.

"Can't it wait...Eric is leaving and I have to escort him..."

"No father, It can't wait." She interjected.

I was literally beaming inside.

What a pathetic excuse for a woman. She actually thought fundamental relationships could be formed in three days.

It was jarring I hadn't bedded her already, Not that I intended to. All I needed was her help and when that settled, we would honor separate ways like we never met.

Her father tensed up and massaged his pulsing forehead tenderly.

If only he knew what his sweet daughter was going to say to him. He was going to be shattered after this. I could barely wait.

"It's about Eric....Eric and I." She stammered, her eyes letting out beautiful waterworks.

Drama queen.

This was surely going to be a stage work I would enjoy.

"What about you...and him?" He sent invisible daggers right me but that was just child's play. I had the immunity I needed, his daughter's heart wrapped in my bristled fingers. One mistake and he would crush his daughter to the very soul, So much that she might consider eloping with me. Whatever choice Spencer made, I would be the winner.

I was my father's son after all.

"I love Eric." She revealed.

The drumrolls reeled in and I patiently waited for what would happen next.

Just like I had predicted, Spencer whacked Maisy hard in the face. It sent her to another crying frenzy.

Spencer turned to me.

"Leave this place before I return or I promise you I'll kill you. No matter what status you think you hold." He threatened and stormed off.

Empty threats.

When he was out of sight, My attention returned to Maisy who took the earth as her solitude.

I joined her and wiped away her tears.

It worked like a cha

ep. Luckily, my father came to the rescue.

He escorted me down the aisle, which seemed longer than before. He became my strength; without him, I would faint.

The guests stared at me, waving at me, smiling- one thing was for sure, though… no one made a sound.

Up ahead I saw him, Eric. My future husband, the love of my life, my everything. He stood taller, his shoulders back and his starry eyes on me.

If I wasn't mistaken I could have sworn tears filled his eyes but that was just my feelings messing up with my mind.

At the end of the aisle, my father hugged me, "I'm proud of you" He a knowledged and then presented me to my groom.

I felt nothing but pain. Even if he wasn't okay with me and Eric, he supported me.

Father placed my hand in Eric's and smiled.

As a couple, Eric and I stood in front of the priest before my father walked away.

He didn't talk to Eric and as much as it was upsetting, I knew he was doing his best to handle this situation.

I briefly tried to focus on me, My big day.

"You're beautiful, " Eric said to me in a hushed tone.

I blushed.

"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today, to witness this man and woman join together in holy matrimony..." The priest began. He was quick, Heaven must have known how much I was dying to officially make Eric mine. I could pick out girl gossip from the crowd of how I managed to trap a prince.

The exchange began. The ring bearer can with the rings and Eric took the first turn, "I, Eric, take you, Maisy to be my wife, my constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward. In the presence of our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live." He swore with nothing but compassion then pushed the ring into my annulary.

It sealed our bond for all eternity.
