Zack tensed up slightly and then swallowed softly."Uh...I haven't asked her yet but I'm trying to get to know Princess Hendrina and she deserves a man that will give her attention and affection and not to just have a hungry desire for her...."Zack said and looked down,trying his best to calm down his bright red blush.
''O-Oh, I see.'' Albert let a smile grace his lips. ''I can assure you I don't have a strong lust for Hendrina but, I'm sure I can feel romantic feelings towards her. Hendrina is quite a mystery, quite the charmer.'' Albert continued, his eyes gaze downward to the princess. Her cheeks flared red as she ran her finger against her maroon colored nail. ''D-Don't say such things like I'm not here!'' She hissed, feeling flustered. Waving the princess off Albert continued to his interrogation with the prince. ''Prince Zack, may I ask why you are here in our kingdom? It is indeed rare for a well-respected elf to be here.'' He spoke, the words were true, elves who adventured to the Hiria Empire were sure to meet their fate.
"I shouldn't talk anymore..."Zack said as he immediately had a blank look on his face and huffed."Of course I get angry looks from others around here but I could care less about them..."He said as he folded his arms across his chest,his blank look being replaced with an angry scowl"I know it's rare for myself to step foot in this Empire so you don't have to say it again to me and I don't have to speak of my business on being here.."He grumbled as he glowered at him.
''I-I'm sorry, I-I didn't m-mean to anger you, Prince Zack.'' He gulped down the lump within his throat. ''Excuse me but, I must go. Princess Hendrina, Prince Zack I'm sure the both of you must resume your tour.'' With that said, Albert took his leave as Hendrina chuckled. ''Oh, it's adorable at how anger you can get!'' Hendrina snickered with a smile gracing her lips. ''Shall we go to one more place? Curfew hour is arriving soon. Even people within the castle must be within their respected places. Oh, before we leave do you wish for an access slip? It's like a hall pass for those who attend school. It'll give you access to the kitchen, the throne room, and if I am needed, to the royal family's secluded hall where the rooms are located.'' Hendrina mentioned being sure to have the man know of the rules within the castle. ''All outside areas are restricted. If you want to, we can resume the tour tomorrow if you wish to eat. It has been a long day and I don't want to be a bother, especially if you're tired.'' Hendrina rambled onward, wanting to cover everything just in case.
Zack blushed and then nodded his head with a faint smile."I don't mind to visit one more place,I'm actually enjoying myself"He said.Derek soon walked over to them and smiled"I heard everything that had just occurred but I didn't want to interfere"
Whilst clearing her throat, Hendrina could feel the rising heat grow onto her cheeks.Hendrina's cold, pale hands touched the sides of her navy blue dress as she smoothed out the invisible wrinkles. With a gulp, Hendrina tried her all to get the attention away from her heated cheeks. ''I am very glad to hear you're enjoying yourself, Prince Zack.'' Hendrina said as she fixated her gaze to the ground in hopes to ignore the smile gracing Derek's lips. ''Now, where to next Prince Zack, Mr. Derek?'' Hendrina bit on the inside of her cheek, thinking of where they shall all go. ''We can spend our remaining time at the stables to admire the strongest horses within the entire empire, we too can go to the ballroom to listen to whatever music my mother has played, or I could show you to your sleeping quarters. If there were to be a place you do wish to go to, we shall as long as there will be time to do so.'' Hendrina hummed content with her response.
Zack blushed as he rubbed his neck and looked at Derek and sighed."I like music so can we go to the ballroom?"He asked as he smiled faintly.Derek soon nodded his head in agreement with Prince Zack's suggestion on going to the ballroom.
''O-Of course.'' Hendrina stuttered as she bit her bottom lip. ''I do apologise for my rambling.'' Hendrina breathed out as she began walking. Her heels clicking against the wooden boards. With a motion of her hand and a smile gracing her lips. ''This way.'' Hendrina said as she opened the wooden doors. Exiting out the large doors, Hendrina began walking down one of the halls.
Zack followed Princess Hendrina as he hummed softly."It is quite alright,Princess Hendrina.."He said as he looked around as he continued to follow Princess Hendrina down one of the halls.Derek followed them as he stayed a few distance away from them,looking around.
Hendrina turned down the corner as she saw towards the end of the hall a large oak door, trimmed in the familiar golden linings. ''The ballroom is quite large. Most events are held there. At rare occasions, the ballroom is used for meetings or executions.'' Hendrina whispered, as she approached the door. The silver door knobs touching her cold skin as she opened the door wide. Guards were stationed around the outskirts ballroom, a few stationed a farther ways down the hall of the ballroom. Entering the ballroom showed a fair group of many, all turned their gazes to the princess in shock. ''Oh,'' Hendrina mumbled as a smile graced her lips. ''This is a wonderful time to meet the head Butler and the rest of the members within the harem.'' Hendrina smiled as she approached the group of men.
Greetings were appointed to the princess as she approached the group. Hendrina smiled as she approached Xavier, his servant uniform being far more noticeable than one of the many high class men. "Xavier, please would you introduce the men to Prince Zack as Prince Zack may be the newest member to our harem.'' Hendrina said as she placed a hand onto the butler's shoulder. ''Of course, Lord Elliott Morrison, please introduce yourself.'' Xavier stated as the man stepped aside from the crowd. Elliot Morrison had two toned hair, a mixture of chocolate and red locks. His slouched form and pierced ears made him look unapproachable. "Hey! I'm the one and only Elliott Morrison, my mother and father are professional doctors here! Oh, I enjoy killing your illegal elves who come into Hiria Kingdom without permission from the queen herself. As well as other witches who are disobedient.'' Elliot smirked at his response as he approached the princess. ''Perhaps one day, and that day may be soon that I get to marry the princess. So, stay out of my way, would ya?'' Elliot Morrison said with a laugh. He approached the princess, wrapping his arms around her waist as she giggled at the affection.
God, I cringed at trying to come up with a quick personality for him.))
Zack snorted at Elliot as he folded his arms across his chest,a visible angry scowl on his face."And so far my name is still much better than yours and also who would name their spoiled brat,Elliot Morrison? Doesn't sound like a mature name if you ask me.."Derek said and smirked slyly as his eyes glowed in amusement."I don't think you will treat her well with all that enthusiasm in your voice...You act like a child..."Zack said as he nudged Derek as he started to snicker.
''Spoiled brat? I can assure you I find my own way of living! I sell drugs in the underground!'' Elliott growled as he removed his arms from the princess. ''Surprised you haven't killed these b------s yet princess.'' Elliott snarled as he stepped aside sitting on the stage. ''Shall we continue?'' Questioned Xavier as he cleared his throat. ''Ares Kokinos is our next introduction.'' The man with ruby locks and green eyes approached as he smiled an all too charming smile. He approached the prince, fingers running over Zack's jawline as Ares continued walking until he was face to face with the princess. With his head looming over the princess he bent down onto one knee, grasping Hendrina's hand. He kissed her knuckles with care, causing her cheeks to flush. ''I am General Ares Kokinos, my father is the commander of Hiria's army. My mother is a nurse within the military. My duties are to protect the castle as well as the royal bloodline. The princess and I, have similar traits as well as connections with many folk. With this said we have an already healthy relationship.'' Ares said as he rose from his kneeling position. He ran his fingers through her dark violet locks, kissing her neck a few times before smirking. ''May I say that I'm attracted to her, with my very heart and soul. Nothing but her happiness matters.'' He smiled down towards the princess. ''But, I must say, it is a treat to have a woman with such beauty.'' Ares commented as he traced her collarbone with his fingers.
"I'm quite surprised about Sir Ares,He does have a more mature attitude than the drug sealing,way too enthusiastic brat sitting on the stage over there and doesn't have two toned hair...I can handle with him.."Derek said as he said as a compliment instead of an insult.Zack hummed in agreement with Derek and smirked slightly"I just feel a rivalry between us,General Ares.."
