Deep in the Meadows

16 year old Rosetta wishes her Mother never had strict rules about being apart of the Royal Family. When Rosetta runs to the meadows for some peace, she finds seventeen year old Drake sitting on the highest branch of an old oak tree. But love has it's secrets and Drake has a secret that should never be exposed.

The two of them spend every free minute together and end up falling in love. But when Drake's secret is exposed, his sentence means the two may never be together again. Or will they? This for the Love story Comp. (I used a diffrenet picture as of the story's characters. Sorry if this is not allowed)


1. The Old Oak Tree

'Rosetta you need to get up now. Rosetta? ROSETTA!' Rosetta opened her eyes to her maid Odettel and bright sun seeping down to her as if to wake her by it's rays. Odettel threw her a hair ribbon and left just as Rose got up and dragged herself out of her warm bed towards her dresser and slumped onto the stool. She gaped at her reflection as her long, brown hair stuck out every way you could think of. Her eyes red and puffy and skin was pinkish with heat. She washed and fixed her hair into a braid. Rose then wandered to the wordrobe and opened the doors. She pulled out a purple dress and grabbed a pair of purple shoes. She then ran down the steps of her tower and reached the great hall just as her Mother shut the hall door. She ran to the dining hall and sat in her place next her brother Josh.

'Late getting up again Rosie?' He asked spooning up Porridge. Rosetta smirked and grabbed a bowl.

'Yes of course. But this time it's not my fault. There was a wolf howling outside my window and it continued all night.' Rosetta said adding sugar and milk to her porridge.Rose's older brothers Josh and Andrew laughed, but Daisy tutted. Josh was the first born and therefore was the next ruler of the kingdom but he just turned eighteen. Then Andrew, who was left at the door, with a note of his name, date of birth and how old he was. Their Mother found out he was Scottish when he said his first word. Ma. Then Daisy was born, a couple of days after Andrew was found now their known as twins being 17. Then two years after Rosetta was born. Now 16, going on 17, she was like the black sheep in the family, she stood out. Always defying the rules having them her own way. Daisy stared at her little sister's hair.

'What if Mother was to walk in now. What would she say?' Daisy hissed

'I really don't care. Now Daisy you keep secrets, don't tell anyone I'm off to the meadows again. And that includes you two as well' Rosetta said turning to her brothers and glaring.

'You've got our words' said Josh crossing his heart.

'Yeah and I'll not tell anyone OK?' said Daisy smiling. This is why Rosetta loved her older siblings. They finished their breakfast and wandered to do their own thing. Rosetta went to the kitchen door and knocked softly. It opened and Mary-Anne lead her to the door.

'Now, you're Mother will be back at sunset. Be home before then' Said Mary-Anne as Rosetta turned to leave.  The door shut, and that was the signal for her to hide her Tiara and shoes by the back door. Rosetta bolted for the meadow, her peaceful place when she needed to go.

"This time, I'll be sleeping on the old oak's highest branch." She thought as she reached the clearing. As she went to climb the wooden ladder, she saw a boy about Daisy and Andrew's age. She stared and wondered how he got up. She hidden the ladder in the hole of the tree. That's when he looked down and smiled.
