There was quite a crowd gathering around us and I was in my element. I never felt more at home when surrounded by people.
Everyone seemed to have met a prince at one time or another which made me feel inferior to them. I mean sure I'd met guys, I'd even had a boyfriend but he hadn't been a prince, that was why I've been sent here.
I recognised most of the princesses from earlier but there was one who joined us that I didn't know.
'My name is Peleanor.'
'Hi I'm Lia.' I held out my hand for her to shake but instead to curtsys. I withdraw my hand but do a little bob in reply.
Nice to meet you Lia.' I wasn't sure if her smile was genuine or just from years of practising a genuine smile. I didn't know what to say to her so I just smiled and turned back to Morgan. She was looking at Pelenor in a very strange way.
'Are you OK Morgan? You don't look too good.' Her face had gone slightly pale.
'Maybe I wasn't over my land-sickness after all.'
'Let me take you to your room. You'll probably feel better if you lie down for a bit.' I linked arm with her and led her upstairs. She was being uncharacteristically quiet. I was no detective but even I could tell something had happened between Peleanor and Morgan, I just couldn't put my finger on it.
