Residents of the Spade Kingdom stay here. Residents of the Diamond Kingdom are allowed here.

Donovan passed by a few soldiers in the large palace, patting one on the shoulder, "You're doing a good job. Keep up the watch. I'll have someone relieve you two in an hour." He stated before moving on, his helmet carried underneath his arms. His pace eventually quickened to a slow jog. He was on his way to the queen to request that his sister be allowed to visit the Diamond Kingdom as an emissary and diplomat to improve the relations between the two. He would have preferred to go himself, but he didn't want to drown in the underwater kingdom, and his sister didn't seem to fear it at all. Maybe she was secretly born with gills, like all Diamond citizens. As he neared the doors to the throne room, he paused before the royal guards and saluted them. He wasn't their commander. They answered directly to the royalty. It didn't bother him, though. He found it comforting to know that he wasn't responsible for all the soldiers in Spades. Just some. Just the best. His men were the best and brightest. He was sure of it. He hadn't actually observed the other divisions in battle, but he didn't need to. He knew that the queen knew that he deserved nothing but the best under his watch. Supposedly. The doors to the throne room slowly opened, and Donovan made his way inside.

Blair sat back in her throne, resting her head on her hand. She ran her fingers through her long, red hair and looked over as the doors opened. "Oh, Donovan." She straightened out her hair piece, sitting up. "What brings you all the way over to the palace today? Did something happened that I wasn't aware about?"

"Not unless I wasn't aware about it either, my Queen." Donovan fell to a knee, "I have only come here with a simple request regarding our close friends within the Diamond Kingdom." He explained, still kneeling, his helmet now on the ground beside him, "My apologies for having not removed the warpaint from my face. I hadn't time to wash it off between running the training drills and coming here. I understand it is unnatural to make a peaceful request when wearing such…barbaric paint. But it's a family tradition. My father was a rat, but I respect my ancestors."

Blair waved her hand, standing up. She looked down at him, "You're fine; you know I don't mind. It's who you are and I respect that from you." She smiled, walking down the throne steps and over to him. "About the Diamond Kingdom, you say? Do you wish to take a trip or is it about something else?"

Donovan slowly stood up, picking up his helmet, "I am not requesting a trip, no…not for myself at least. I understand that our peoples still hold high standing within the Diamond Kingdom, but I thought that sending an emissary to keep those relations intact and show them that they are important to us. I volunteer my sister, Cecilia. She has been eager to visit the Diamond Kingdom, and while she may not be a part of your grand family, I'm certain she would prove useful in proving our public care for the peoples of Diamond."

"Cecilia? A trip to the Diamond Kingdom?" she repeated aloud. She thought about it to herself for a moment. "I suppose it's fine as long as she behaves herself. I'm sure I won't have to worry about any rude behavior if she's your sister." She smiled, walking over to him. She put a hand on his shoulder, "I'll let her go. Do you have any idea how long the visit will be?"

"I told her to stay no longer than two weeks. So she shouldn't be gone much longer than that, my queen. And I can assure you that she is a well-mannered woman. She would never dream of causing trouble for the people's of Diamond." Donovan smiled, "If I may ask, your majesty, how have you been? You seemed rather...bored when I first saw you."

"Oh, that's it? For some reason I was expecting it to be longer than that!" Blair laughed patting his shoulder. "It's no problem! She can go visit the kingdom. She is related to you, so I'm sure she's just as loyal as you are." She looked at him, "Oh, right. Today's just been... a slow day is all. Nothing interesting has happened really."

Donovan smiled, "Would you like to organize a campaign against the Hearts? Maybe declare war on Clover? That might speed the day up a bit." He joked dryly, "I'm not honestly suggesting we waste the lives of our soldiers on people such as the Hearts just because you're bored. Just having a bit of a laugh, my queen. And I must say I appreciate your blessing to send Cecilia as an emissary. I am sure my sister will be ecstatic. I must admit though, I still don't know why she's so eager to run the risk of drowning to visit the Diamond Kingdom. If she wanted to see some underwater buildings so badly, she could just purchase a ship and go looking for ruins in the sea."

"Oh, believe me, declaring war would not be something I do just because I'm bored. It's actually really stupid for someone to do that if you ask me." Blair laughed, "Now, now, the whole kingdom isn't under water. There's plenty to do above the water and plenty of shops to visit. I'm sure she'll find something to do while she's there."

"But if she wants to speak with the king and queen and gain favor for my dynasty, and for your whole glorious Kingdom, your majesty, she'll have to go under the water, right? All the stories I've heard have at least placed the palace underwater." Before Blair could respond, Donovan put a hand to his chin in thought, "Suppose the royal family of Diamond must have been born with gills. Do you think they have lungs as well, or are they cursed to stay underwater?"

"You have a very interesting thought process, Donovan." Blair smiled and hummed to herself softly. "I suppose that would seem to make sense though. They do seem to be very water friendly, but I guess that's just how their kingdom works. It's nothing to complain about!" She patted his shoulder again with a grin, "I do hope your sister will have no trouble arriving there and returning back."

"I should say she rarely finds trouble with anything, your majesty." Donovan replied, "Very well behaved girl, if you ask me. And I've already got a carriage waiting to take her. I just had to get your permission first. If you ask me, though, she does have a problem in that she reads too much." He sighed, looking down for a moment, "It's all she seems to enjoy doing. Books, books, books, and more books. I think she needs to put all that book knowledge to use and impress some nobleman so I can get myself a brother-in-law."

((Sorry for being so inactive. Been stressing out over diploma exams lately. Gonna try to get on more, though. Gotta say, it's a shame to see these two brand new groups having died off so quickly, but maybe it's just because of the time of year, eh? Hopefully once summer really kicks in people will get more active))

((Oh don't worry about it!! I'm hoping that things will start getting better as well!))

Blair laughed, "Well, books are certainly powerful things if you ask me. They tell several stories within a few pages or chapters, and children love them! It's good to hear how well behaved she is; it's nice to know that, really it is." She patted his head, "I'm sure she'll find someone, don't you worry! She sounds like a very lovely person from what you've told me. She's bound to find someone sooner or later! But marriage can be a terrible thing if you're rushed into it."
