Chapter I

 

 

Sometimes, when she really thinks she just can’t take anymore and she wants nothing more than to run away from the palace all the way back to San Francisco, he’ll walk into the throne room or the meeting room or the grand hall and announce that he simply must see Her Majesty right this moment. 

 

She’ll meet his eyes and he’ll smile. Rising to her feet, she’ll nod to everyone present and stride to him with no hesitation. They’ll walk side by side, fingers brushing, until they’re in sunlight, and then he’ll take her hand. 

 

Sometimes, they just spend time together in the gardens, visiting the archery range or the fountains.  Sometimes they leave the grounds, trying for incognito and always failing, and wander the capital, buying trinkets and souvenirs for each other. Each time, he buys her a plastic tiara and she picks out a book of poetry that he’ll recite from at a later date.

 

When she’s especially weary of being queen, he leads her to the stables. They always choose the same two horses, and they always canter to the same tree by the pond.  Sometimes they dance; sometimes they just hold each other. 

 

At dawn they return to the palace, no matter what their adventures have been. She is ready to resume the place she chose, and she kisses him in thanks.

 

He catches her hand and presses his lips to her knuckles, and he tells her, “I love you.” 

 

And she goes to be queen.

Lovely. There's a sense of movement to this, even though it's about Mia getting a break from being queen.
