A couple days ago her father received an invitation to go to another kingdoms ball. The invitation stated that all his sons and daughters were welcome to join too as this was not something so formal as it was only a social gathering to have fun once in awhile. Surprisingly Krystal thought she didn't need to go but on the day before the ball her father announced that EVERYONE had to go, and by everyone he meant her since she was the only one who refused to go. She didn't understand why the sudden change. Yeah she had always refused to go, but her father never made her. And there was one time she did want to he instructed her that she needed to stay in the palace. So why now?

And so she took her first steps out of the palace in over 10 years.


Krystal clenched her sweaty palms with her head held low as she entered the ballroom closely behind her father and was surrounded by her siblings. Then after awhile they were all greeted by acquaintances and friends, before she knew it was just her and her father in the huge space echoing with music, and chatter from the other guests. Once she was alone she looked up staring into the eyes of strangers who appeared to go in their direction, probably someone her father knows, and was shaking, trying to fight the urge to down again, and held his hand tightly. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath, repeating her father's words over and over again * remember Krystal you're a princess I can't let others see me as weak or else I'll be a disgrace father *

Once she calmed down, and stopped trembling she opened her eyes with a look of determination. As the unknown people greeted her father she did as her instructors have taught her and greeted them with a curtsy. After she accomplished her mission she excused herself and made her way through the crowd to get a drink. With the ballroom crowded and all it really didn't make her at peace so she made the effort to go to the balcony where there were less people around. And quietly took a few sips of her drink ( fruit punch ) while leaning on the edge of the balcony railings staring at the bright full moon that night.

From the distant rabble of men and women, intoqicating themselves and bantering on with Governmental and private matters, a female voice did stand out of the croud. It did not sound that of Nobility, nor a servant. It was a gentler voice, laughing with a dignified yet accepting tone. It was quite a familiar voice.
In truth the tone came from non-other then a well known maiden, who bears the family crest of tonight's hosts. She's visited your manner before, and even spoke to you once. In truth she seems more dignified then a maid, but more civilized as a Prince or princess. Its a mystery as to why, but she holds a tender nature that anyone can speak with.


In quite, the maiden is speaking quite casually with your father, as though they have known each other for quite some time. By fact they even seem to be exchanging comedy, and laughing quite well to it. But as the music fades and a dance begins they say their farewells, the maiden bowing with a curtsy, and turning in your direction. She smiles sweetly and approaches the balcony.
"Mighty fine Night it is ain't it? The white shining moon has granted us with its ever looming pressence. Oh my i forget myself Dear princess, I should not speak so casual now should I?" She chuckled

Lei stiffly walked into the ball room as he felt many eyes look his way.

Hearing a quite gentle voice she turned to see who it belonged to finding the owner of it speaking to her. She then scanned around the place to see if there was anyone else, to make sure if the lady was talking to someone else. But it appears not as the balcony was left completely deserted and replied calmly while giving a small curtsy as she greeted you calmly, it seems she doesn't have any recollection of you at all for some reason. " Oh yes, what a fine night it is, it doesn't happen often that you could see the moon at its peak so we should treasure moments like these as much as possible "

She didn't care as much about how casual the maid was as she had different thoughts flowing to her head as she was secretly panicking * ..oh god what should I do in moments like these. Father said that it would be nice to be more sociable, but as I thought talking to strangers is still too difficult to me. *

"Still haven't gotten over it Ms. Krystal. I'm Lilliana, I have been around your household for quite some time. But I expect nothing from you dear Mistress. Relax and breath, relax and breath. I came only for the view, not the conversation"

Everyone he passed bowed and said hello, in a very proper manner. So many vibrant colors, and so many people. A lot of them are dancing, to which only the elder folk are by the sides talking about politics or what not. Out of the corner of your eye you can see Lilliana, perched by the marble landing and speaking casually to a princess

" Eh? " Krystal let out unknowingly due to surprise. She then quickly held both of her hands over her mouth embarrassed at her sudden behavior. * How does she know? * After she calmed down a little she deeply apologized " I'm sorry but I'm afraid I can't remember you at all " with a hint of confusion, she continued on " and I'm sorry if this question comes out as rude to you but may I ask, how do you know....you know, that I can't really talk to others " she quietly whispered the last few words really softly. " Well you don't really need to tell me you know " she added.

Lei got even more stiff as they all bowed at him. He thought to himself, T-They are really expecting me to do something... WHAT SHOULD I DO?!'

"because your highness-" she smiled "Ive known you for quite some time. And for the time ive known you, ive only seen you come out of your room twice. Then being the fact, I have worked with your father quite frequently. That it may be, it is pure business, and I speak nothing but the truth. Your mother is to thank for your fathers sudden success. For she was the one to hire me."

For the young lord, Lilliana's work of "..just be yourself" echoes in. 8 years and she had taught you a lot, being kind to others, table manners, and even royal chat. you suppose today is the time for you to use all those skills

Lei took a deep breathe as he walked onto the stage set up in the ballroom. He walked up to the microphone, and began to speak, with a relaxed smile on his face. "Welcome, princes and princesses, from far away places or close places, to this gala. Today, for entertainment, we shall have a dance." Lei stepped off the stage as he brought in some equipment for music as he started to play suitable music for a dance.

((just as a small warning, Its medieval time, Microphones don't exist))

As he walked off the small platform, the audience clapped, there leather and silk gloves making a mixture of loud to soft noises. The instrument you received was a Oak Violin, hand made with the most royal care. Lilliana did teach you afew pieces, but nothing complex, that was left to your Violin teacher, to which you had learned much from in your life, including piano.

((Sorry, history is my worst subject so I don't know much about it!!))

Lei began to play the violin as he closed his eyes, remembering every note to play and where his fingers where supposed to move. He opened his eyes slightly as his hands begun to move in majestic ways as he played the violin with no hesitation.

" I see " Krystal said and heaved a breath of relief, before her eyes widened in surprise with a glittering excitement, she then grasped both of the others hands together " Wait so...you knew my mother? " slightly hoping that it was not the current queen or her father's other concubines but her own birth mother. After all she had not once seen her mothers face as she was separated from her as soon as she was born, she couldn't ask her father since it seemed like a touchy subject for him.

"Why yes of course" she chuckled "a very kind woman indeed. I was recommended to your mother by the current queen of this household. And ever since then I've known your mother quite well. She spoke quite a lot about you. And I might say she simply adores you." She smiled "but- I must not share royal secrets. For I am under order not to tell you where your mother is" she bowed apologetically
