Little Heart of Princess #6 – Ex-princess and ex-servant – Nothing to do

“I’m not a pet or an item, why should I’ve owner?” that ex-princess thought by herself. In a small barn on a deserted land. She wondered about her father’s action that had stripped her royal status and made her become an ex-castle servant’s belonging. “Father is cruel  towards me as his daughter. Maybe I’m his burden and I’m not his real daughter. What else?” She’s lied down in that barn for 3 whole days without any action.

Ira, that appointed master, just cooked something outside of that barn. He left Alionora alone with her thought. Unlike her, Ira seemed calm and did his best to gather as many resources available around that land because they just moved there. Although king already appointed him as his princess’s owner in disguise, he didn’t has any clues about what should he do to make Alionora become a normal princess again, or at least a normal person. He just left that task first to prepare their life in that unknown location.

Finally, Alionora’s stomach felt grumbled. People won’t survived by breathing only. She didn’t said any words with him at all. But, her hunger was more powerful. After stood up from straws in that barn, she took a peek from barn entrance into Ira’s prepared food around bonfire. Simple cuisines yet delicious. Ira awared, but feigned ignorance. He still remembered about one of king’s secret orders.

Let that person acted first


Little Heart of Princess #5 – Messed up princess

“Royal decree?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who dared to instruct a commoner to do royal decree like this, father?” Pyjamas princess screamed furiously in throne room, in front of king and queen. Luckily, no nobles, aristocrats, or any guest attended.

King looked at his messed up daughter for a first time in a few months. Queen seemed shocked with her daughter loudness after a while. “My daughter, if you may wish any explanation regarding to any of formal matters, should you prepare yourself first?” Unsatisfied with king reply accordingly, she said something. “What is formality regarding to this matter? Since when a king could order a commoner to become a master of any royal member? I’m not a slave, father! Do you want to tarnish my position?” King has laughed loudly. “You already tarnished, my daughter. Look at yourself in mirror now. Look at your smelly hair, body, and clothes. No one would differentiate you with any slave in streets, and you’re worse than them. How could a royal member is useful to country when she used her whole time in chamber without doing anything? However, I’m shocked that you’re still bother about royal title with your position.” Queen sympathized of her daughter. She did nothing. No one could read her expression right then. Her daughter tried to give her plead look to her, but nothing changed. “Mother, do something! Why should I become a slave for this simple matter? How spiteful!” Queen stood from her place and touched her daughter’s cheeks with her palms. “Mother…” Princess’s voice softened. “I couldn’t against any royal decree, Alionora. Tell your mother, Alionora, how should I stop this absolute order?”

Little Heart of Princess #4 – A rage or struggle?

Princess still stayed in her chamber for a few days after that. She won’t move an inch from her chamber. However, one evening, a little maidservant on duty that around 14 years old came to her chamber and brought another letter. Princess ordered her to stay when she received that letter.

She took deep breath and read that letter. After that, her expression became what people might call as … DEMON. Or worse than that. I leave it to your imagination. *Author giggles* Maybe. A poor little maid that did not know a thing thought that she will get some reply letter from her master. She’s just a delivery girl.  However, she bent her head for a whole time before she knew everything. Princess looked at her maid furiously.

In a small cabin for servant that located about 3 miles in north of castle, a young boy washed his clothes and co-workers clothes altogether happily. Or he seemed happy. His head was spinning and full of messed up details. A really messed up plan. How could he involved in this matter? This was his first time ever to break his boundary, by permission of royal order. Not really a permission, perhaps more to a forceful employer order, in blackmail form. Head of servant came to meet him alone and gave a secret royal decree from king. His Majesty raised his position as Princess’s official attendant. That should be a good news for a plebeian like him. He got more salary and saving. He got to wear better servant attire although he’s a junior castle employee. Indeed. With a specific term. A heavy responsibility. He got to make Princess to become normal like before again. By any means.  Duration of his duty was one month or 30 days to get her walk out by her own from her chamber. If nothing happened, his castle employment will strip out and he need to find another job. It’s meant as death sentence to a diligent worker like him that spent his childhood to prepare himself as castle servant. Let’s ignore many more details about him. We’ll know later.

How about his plan? His plan already in motion. His do-or-die stupid plan. Not a grand one. He’s already preparing his heart to meet his grim reaper. He knew that he’ll lose his job by any means.
