Blair looked at Donovan and then to Cecilia, sighing. "I guess... I can try to get you into another kingdom, but it all depends on which one it is and why you're going there. If I don't like the reason or the kingdom, then I'll have no choice but to not let you go there. And I don't want you sneaking out on your own either; you know how other kingdoms are."

Cecilia's eyes immediately lit up, and a wide grin covered her face, "Um, well I'm not going to visit the Hearts Kingdom, if that's what you're worried about. I was considering both the Clover and Black kingdoms, mostly. I mean, I just wanted to see what Clover was like so I understand if you do not want me going there, but we are the only kingdom that the Black Kingdom is not openly hostile towards. I thought they could potentially become a partner in trade, or perhaps even an ally--a defensive ally, of course. Something tells me if we completely allign with them, we'd be at war with every other kingdom sooner or later."

Blair frowned, looking at her. "Well... if that's truly what you want." She sighed to herself, tapping her finger on the arm of her throne chair. She thought to herself for a moment. "I suppose I can let you travel, however, I will ask for an extra number of guards or military personnel to travel with you. They don't need to stay with you the whole time and can keep their distance and watch you from afar. It's just for safety precautions, understand?"

"Of course, my queen." Cecilia's smile only grew, "And thank you."

"Are you certain the extra guard is necessary, your majesty?" Donovan interjected, looking at his sister with disapproval for having not spoken up herself, "My dear sister is only a minor noble. Her safety, in my opinion should not come before the safety of our realm."

"Brother, I don't believe she means I will be sent with an army. I think-"

"Sister, do as I told you before and fall silent."

"Well, I certainly don't trust the prince of the Black Kingdom; he makes me feel uneasy. I suppose she doesn't have to have that many guards with her, but I do want her to have a safe travel. After all, she is the sister of my favorite general and a citizen of my kingdom, therefore, I want to make sure her trip goes smoothly." Blair said.

"If that is you wish, my queen, I shall not object any further. Should the men be of my levy? Or will you have some guardsmen transport her?" Donovan asked, holding back his smile from hearing her approval of him.


Cecilia didn't speak again, bowing her head in a respectful manner.

"That, Donovan, is up to you. She is your sister, therefore I will let you decide which of your men goes with her and which do not." Blair replied, looking over at him with a grin. "I'm sure you'll keep your best men here just in case anything happens here, correct?"

Donovan quickly nodded, "Of course, my queen. My sister will only receive a few of my better soldiers. Most of her guard will be the recruits and trained peasants. As much as I love my dear sister, she is not worth the best forces I can offer." He produced a small piece of paper, "I shall send Cecilia with a message to my officers for them to provide her with some men."

Blair nodded, "Good thinking." She tapped her fingers on the arm of her chair, looking back at Cecilia, "Now, Cecilia, I'm sure you already know this, but as the queen, I must remind to keep quiet about military officials guiding you throughout the kingdoms other than the Diamond kingdom, understand? I don't want them thinking that I'm planning something."

"Of course." Cecilia nodded, "I'll be sure to have brother's men stay in peasant attire, save for one or two armored guards with me. After all, a tiny number of soldiers should be expected to escort a diplomat. Um...but the rest will just try to blend in. I promise."

"It's not your promise she needs." Donovan stated with a commanding tone, "I assure you my men understand the procedure of entering a non-allied kingdom. They will be discreet, my queen."

Blair clapped her hands, smiling. "Very well then! As queen of this kingdom, I hereby grant you the permission to travel to the neighboring countries and so forth. Donovan, tell one of your men to report back to you if anything goes wrong or if anything seems suspicious. Come find me and tell me yourself, alright?"

Donovan nodded, turning to his sister, "One of my officers has a code word with me, to prove the legitimacy of any orders he receives from someone else. Tell him to provide you with an outfit of men, and incorporate the word papaya in the conversation. The officer's name is Franklin." He turned back to the queen, still speaking to Cecilia, "Do you understand?"

"Yes, brother." Cecilia curtsied before Blair before turning around and quickly leaving the large throne room, repeatedly muttering "Papaya." to herself.

Blair hummed, "I do believe she'll be just fine, but I can't help but have a small sense of worry." She sighed, "I guess that's what being a queen means; or at least, somewhat. Then again, all of my citizens are dear to me and I do wish for their safety to continue being, well... safe." She looked at him, "Oh, forgive me. I'm just going on and on rambling!"

"You're quite right to think like that, if I am allowed to say. A ruler who does not think of their subjects is not a fit ruler at all." Donovan said calmly, "Even if the thoughts are to make them fear, that would make a ruler fit. But none would be a better queen than you, your majesty."

Blair grinned, "Well, I'm glad you think so. I know of a few citizens that believe they would be a better queen than me. I overhear some of them talking about while I'm out and about in town. They say they would get more involved with the rivaling kingdoms and most of their ideas don't suit royalty." She sighed, "I guess there's nothing we can do about it though."
