A Choice without Regret

The whole chamber goes silent. My father's face get red in anger and Lucas's red in embarrassment. "What the hell was that?" My brother yells at me as he tries to get back on his feet.

"That... was for you being stupid. Now please just sit down. Father, I must ask you to leave this chamber as it is not your territory anymore." I say as I take my seat and pick up the crystal. 

"Evelyn, just you remember this one thing. If youever try to overthrow me... I will make your life a living hell! And don't your forget it!" He yelled as he turned on his heel and stormed out of the chamber.

"Look what you've gone and done! Happy now?" Lucas yells at me.

"Sit down!" I yell. But he continues to make a scene. "Guards, please escort him to the Chamber of Judgement. Tell Brigitte she will be having some work to do today." 

"You can't do this! I swear to god! When I get out of that chamber I'll kill you!" He screamed as he was drug out of the Chamber of Councils. 

I try to hold back my tears. I have to be strong. I have to. I take my seat and ask, "All in favor of passing that my marriage will be moved from four months to two weeks?"

The whole chamber nods and murmurs. I just made a big choice, and I must now face what will come along with it. I am the spark that will probably cause the second Great War. As I think of what could happen, I hear a shout.

"Down with the King! Down with Lawrence!" 

Thomas looks over at me and whispers, "I love you. You can do this. You are a strong women. You will succeed." 

At that moment, I know what must be done. I cannot just overthrow my father, I will have to kill him. 

The End
