A Royal Mount - Part 1

by Elizabeth

"Hello Prince Benjamin." I curtsied.
"Hello to you too Princes Kiylale."He bowed then walked away.
"I didn't know how hard it was to be at a ball!" I whispered to myself. My first important ball where there are princes and princesses going to make a speech!

"So how is it going?" Mom said walking over to me.
"Ok." I said with a forced smile on my face.
"Good and if you need any help just come to me." Mom said soothingly. Taking a breath in and out I felt more relax.
"Queen Shanona it has been a while since we have seen each other! Come over let's talk." Queen Greena said motioning mom over there. Mom waved then went over talking and laughing. I walked away.
"I wonder were Princess Cristle and Princess Monona is?" said to myself.

"Hello Kiylale!" A voice called out from behind me. I turned around to see Cristle behind Monona.
"How are you girls?" I asked nearly jumping up and down. "I have some news to tell you but let's go some were private." I showed them off to the castle lounge.

So we talked and talked. I first talked about my sister and how she and her new boyfriend Prince Lunder are getting along and their first kiss. After an hour of talking we heard that the speeches were going to begin.

"It's time," Cristle said nervously. We all looked at each other and nodded with scared faces. We walked out to the ballroom where all the princes and princesses were lining up on the over look to the ball.

"Queens and Kings, we are here today to hear the speeches of the princes and princesses. So who would like to go first? He said turning around to us.
"I will." A prince said stepping forward.

Speech after speech it became closer to my turn. Butterflies were in my stomach. I felt like I was going to throw up, head spinning. Then he looked at me and told me to come up.

"No please." I whispered very quietly. He didn't hear you, my body said to me. I walked toward the front then stopped, put the paper on the stand and started to talk.

"I never want to do that again!" I nearly yelled. Mom looked at me with sympathy in her eyes. All I wanted was to go to the castle (in Paris, my home). I would love to see Domenik, my good boy.
