The cloudy day made strange shadows as Mirabelle glanced out the window longingly dreaming for a different landscape. The gloomy day made the once vivid green hillside look dark green and full of strange shadows. Mirabelle’s blood ran cold and her heart missed a beat as she thought about what might be in the shadows. The southern rebellion had made it hard to travel anywhere for Mirabelle and her sister Ellyn . Their mother and father were tucked safe in the Palace. Mirabelle sighed and wished once more that the royal carriage wasn’t so fancy. It was easily spotted as a person waving a flag screaming “I’m part of the royal family!!” Mirabelle was snapped out of her thoughts by a slight tapping on her knee. She turned around, “Yes?” to see her younger sister Ellyn. Ellyn was only five and had the most beautiful hair Mirabelle had ever seen. It was as brown as soil just dug out of the ground and fell to her waist in brown ringlets. Towards the end of her ringlets her hair got lighter until it looked as gold as hay. Ellyn’s eyes were bronze with flecks of brown just like her older sister’s. Her eyes were always filled with wonder for the world and everything she saw around her. Her face was heart shaped and she had the most wonderful smile. Mirabelle often wondered what she would look like when she was older. Mirabelle had reddish brown hair that was wavy and fell around her shoulders. She had eyes like her sister but pale skin that looked almost like marble. Her face was heart shaped just like her sister’s and she had a kind look to her. Maybe that was why the people of Saoira liked her so much. Ellyn tugged on Mirabelle’s skirt “Are we almost there?” she looked bored,”I wanna see Mommy and Daddy again.” her eyes glowed and she beamed. Mirabelle grimaced. Their parents were busy fighting the feud with the other royal family to care about their daughters. The Tiousious family were a dangerous family to mess with. . “Mommy and Daddy will be happy to see you, Ellyn.”, she smiled at her sister as she nervously turned her attention outside to glance once more at the menacing shadows. All at once there was a flash of light and Mirabelle had a flash of two sides glaring at each other. A boy with light golden hair and a grim smile yelled something and glared even more at sad looking girl on the other side. With a jolt Mirabelle realized the girl was her. Vision Mirabelle looked at the boy and at the people nearest to her and whispered something that sounded like “Just a skirmish…Maven please stop..” The boy with the golden blonde hair’s grim smile seemed to fade then it was replaced by a smirk “Nothing can save the alliance now.” Mirabelle didn’t realize she was screaming until Ellyn let out a tiny scream, “Did you have another vision Mirabelle?” it was common news to Ellyn that her older sister could see visions of the future every once and awhile. Sometimes the future she saw never came true though. “What did you see?” Ellyn asked. Before Mirabelle could say anything the Palace came into view. It was painted white and had see through golden tower turrets. The flags with Mirabelle’s face came into view and Mirabelle turned red. On the flags it said; Our newest princess soon to be a queen after the next Queen Choosing. Mirabelle sighed thinking about the Queen Choosing. The Queen Choosing was an armistice. A time of peace. A time when the two royal families of the Tiousious and the Amsteramis stopped the endless fight for power and started the fight for the princess’s hand in marriage and of course this year Mirabelle was the princess. Rich suitors from all over the kingdom of Soaria came to win Mirabelle’s hand and show their power to the King and Queen but really Mirabelle wasn’t interested in marriage at all. She wanted to live her life like a normal 16 year old not a member the Tiousious royal family.
Soon as she thought that the carriage doors flew open and a servant beamed at her and her sister. Mirabelle was so caught up in her thoughts she glanced at the man then froze and turned around to look again as she walked past. He had pale golden blonde hair and cold blue eyes the color of frost. He was the guy from Mirabelle’s vision.
