The Chamber of Councils Part I

When I roll over, I notice that he is still asleep. Typical male. As I get out of my comfortable bed, I can't help but stare at his somewhat long, shaggy blonde hair, his abs, muscles, and his face, he had dimples when he smiles. For once, I think I chose right. I don't realize it, but I was staring at him for ten mintues. I need to marry him, and I need to marry him now! That is, if I am going to overthrow my father before he can finish his plan with the Council of Darkness.

I walk over and open the doors to my closet. Truth be told, I really don't know what I am going to wear today. I find a simple white dress and I pull it out. Just as I slip my nightrobe off, I feel a hand touch the bare skin of my left shoulder.

"Hey there beautiful. I couldn't stop dreaming about you last night." Thomas whispers into my ear.

"Hmm, I wonder why? Anyways, find something nice, you're coming with me today to see how the Privy Council works." I reply smiling.

"The what?" He asks me.

"The Privy Council. We oversee the other four councils and I am the head of it." I reply.

"The... other four?" He asks me, looking confused.

"Yes, the other four. There is the Council of Light, Council of Darkness, Council of Judgement, Council of Peace, and lastly, there is us; The Privy Council." I say trying not to stare at him for to long.

"Wait, you... rule everything?" He asks looking shocked.

"Well, I am the Queen after all and soon, very soon, you shall become the King! But don't worry. Not yet anyways." I say, looking kind of scared.

"What's wrong?" He said to me. He must have noticed how I said it. 

I sigh and look at him. "It's nothing. Just a little nervous about my first meeting. Well, being the head of the meeting. I mean, I've been to plenty of these meetings to see how they work. Now, can you go so I can change?" 

He turns on the heel of his foot and shuts the door behind him. I can't show any fear. If Thomas noticed it, then surely the whole Privy Council will. These people are like vultures and hover over you until you show weakness. They're trained to kill and I am one of them. Ruling all my peers is what makes me scared. I don't know how they will react to this. 

I slip on the dress and grab a pair of heels and walk out of the closet. Today is going to be a very hectic day. Today is the first time in over forty years that all the councils will have met in the same chamber. Today is the day that we plan to overthrow my father. We now that the Council of Darkness will try to shoot down this plan, but I have the trump card. Today, I am motioning that instead of the four month rule, that in two weeks I shall make Thomas my husband. 

"Come on." I say to Thomas. 

"You look so..." Thomas said trying to find the right word.

"Exquisite?" I ask.

"Yeah, exquisite. So very..." He says looking into my eyes.

We slowly move toward each other. Our lips meet, but this time it isn't like when we were in front of everyone in the Ballroom. This time it's out of true love. Finally when we pull apart, he looks me in the eyes and tells me, "I love you." My heart was racing, I had never heard that from another man. Not even my first person I had chosen to marry. Chris is dead now, so I feel like it's okay. 

I throw on my overcoat and we rush out of my room and into the limo to head off to the Capitol Building to finally overthrow my father. This is the first time in my life that I feel happy with myself and what I am doing. He has always tried to tear me down, but finally I am going to show him that I am stronger than what he thinks I am. If he doesn't fall soon, I fear what will happen to the remaining parts of this land. My father has created turmoil and it's about time that I try to fix what is broken. I will have this land rise from the ashes! 

The End
