The BalanceMature

The castle doors swung shut behind me.  Servants came up to me, but I pushed them out of the way.  Speaking to no one, I rushed up the stairs into my secret room.  I locked the door behind me.  I was ready to collapse from all the exhaustion the past days had brought on me, but I forced myself to stay conscious.  

The trap had been set.  The only thing to do was to sit back and wait.  They still had no idea, no clue whatsoever of what was going on.  The prince had finally come.  It was about time, too.  I wasn't sure how much longer I could have kept up with planting seeds of doubt into miss Princess's head.  But now, their world was wrought with confusion, turmoil.  

It was too easy, I thought.  Too easy.  Setting up the trap had it's tolls, but the result would be worth it.  Sacrifices had to be made, but the balance had to be kept.  

They didn't realize that, in the grand scheme of it all, I too, was part of the balance.  

The End
