"Well if we got more involved that could just put a target on our backs, if you ask me. My personal opinion is we stay in the background of all this until we can prove to the people of Diamond that becoming a vassal or even a protectorate of ours is a wonderful idea. Of course, by the time that comes, we might all be dead." Donovan chuckled, his laugh slowly quieting, "I do hope my sister has a safe trip. I would hate to see her return in a casket."

Blair sighed, "That's exactly what I'm doing and yet some of the citizens aren't happy with that. Oh well, I guess I can't please everyone with the decisions I make. I just do what I think is safest for our kingdom; that's all." She tapped her foot, shaking her head. She looked down at Donovan, "Everything will be fine. I'm sure there's nothing to worry about."

"Perhaps." Donovan stated, pausing a moment afterwards, "My apologies if you've had important business waiting for you, my queen. If I am in the way of something, just say the word." He apologized quickly upon noticing her foot tapping.

Blair looked at him, seeming confused for a brief moment. "Oh! No, no, no! Don't worry, Donovan! You're not interrupting anything, I promise! I was just thinking some things over to myself, that's all!" She smiled at him, humming softly to herself.

Donovan smiled meekly for a moment in embarrassment before recollecting himself, "Ah, I see. My apologies for the assumption, then." He paused, thinking as he looked the queen up and down for a moment, "If I may say, your majesty...there was a time in my life when I saw you as nothing but a dumb child straining for her parents' and the realm's approval. I am glad to see you have surpassed my sister." He partially joked, though quickly explained himself, "I mean that as a joke, in part of course. I never saw you as truly idiotic, only as naive, but I didn't see you enough before you became queen to really forge an opinion. My sister, however...I feel like she's only satisfied when she is satisfying me. Not that I should complain. If she's loyal, her children will be. I'd hate to have someone try to steal my status...but in terms of diplomacy when I'm around, I feel she falls short as a result...do you think I frighten her? Or would you say she is just that loyal." He immediately continued after a short sigh, "I suppose you don't know her very well...and I suppose it could be a mix of both...poor girl."

"Donovan," Blair began with a small smile. "I do believe that your sister looks up to you in a way, even if you both don't know it. At least, that's how I see your relationship. I'm not trying to say something wrong since I do not know her personally, but that's just was it seems like to me." She let out a quiet sigh, looking around the palace. Her eyes fell on the guards and then the throne doors. Shaking her head, she looked back at Donovan. "Sorry, sorry. I don't mean to try to sound like I know everything about you and your family, that's all. I'm just throwing out my opinion."

Donovan sighed, "Perhaps." He answered, looking around the room quickly, "But if I may say, you do know more than most about us. The commoners don't seem to remember my father's assassination attempt. I should assume that you do remember, however, my queen."

"Oh, I do remember that." Blair's eyes fell on him as she let out a tired sigh. "At the time I could remember thinking 'How could he ever do that to his son? I couldn't ever imagine someone's father doing that!', but then I realized, not all people in every kingdom is kind to the other citizens. I do have to say, it's quite a shame that someone like you was the target of something like that; especially the attacker being your own father. I could never imagine my father; or anyone in the family; doing something like that!"

"Your family wouldn't have to. You're already royalty. Some people are more focused on weeding out the strong so they can prosper, instead of focusing on the good of their family or their kingdom." Donovan shrugged, "Of course I still hate my father for his actions...but they could not have been prevented. That is the kind of man my father was."

Blair smiled some, before groaning. "Well, I can't say your father was a great person, but still. His actions don't make it any better." She tapped her fingers on the throne arm. "I take full responsibility of anything anybody in this kingdom does. Everyone deserves to be treated the same and I do just that... or at least try to."

"My liege, if I may say: No two people will be treated the same, no matter what you try to do to make them equal. The general resides over their soldiers and has more money and influence than them. The bishop over the priest. The nobleman over the farmer. No matter what you do, hierarchy will exist. It's a disgusting truth, but a truth. And it's a truth I've personally chosen to embrace. After all, it's not like I can just deny it."

"I know, I know... Things like that just upset me. People assume that the farmers don't know anything; that they only know how to plant and make food for a living. In my opinion, some of the noblemen skip out on their studies and act as if they truly know everything. It seems that's just the way people are nowadays, and..." Blair trailed off, shaking her head with a sigh.

"And nothing will change that for quite some time." Donovan said calmly, "Perhaps one day people will be better...but not today. It isn't something that is worth worrying over, my queen. People will change with time, but that takes time...time beyond our lifespan. Take comfort in knowing that people will get better. That I can say with certainty."

"Yes, yes. I suppose that's all right. Maybe I'm being too worried about the world." Blair sighed, looking around again with a huff. "I guess some people will change and others won't. To me, that's just how people are no matter what century, or even country for that matter, are like. But then again, the queen's thoughts aren't always correct!"

Donovan shook his head, smiling warmly, "Oh don't say that! Sure you may not always be entirely right, but you've got some wisdom that nobody else does! That's the virtue of being royalty, my queen. While you're not always correct, you speak with wisdom most people can't even imagine having."
