27. 27


I held Aiden’s arm as we walked down the street to the car, waving at others and smiling for pictures with others. It was practically painful going back to the real world.

“Why are you doing this?” I asked Aiden once we got into the car.

“Why are you literally doing someone else?”

“Because I don’t love you.” I fired back, making Aiden look sad all over again. “I made my decision.”

And what decision is that?”

“You’ll find out at the Gala tonight that my parents are hosting.”

“What? You’re giving a speech?”

“Well duh. I normally do.” I said, crossing my arms. After this, everything went silent. Once we got back to the Palace, mom and dad were waiting for me, “proud” of me for having a public appearance; if only they knew what had gone on only hours earlier I doubt they would be proud.

“Mom, dad, we need to talk.” I said once we had a moment alone as we were about to enter the party.

“What about darling?”


“I’m giving up my place in line.”

“KING AND QUEEN AND THE PRINCESSES!” My parents jaw’s dropped however they could not say anything since the doors had been opened and we were making out way out into the party room.



“Is this really that twisted?” Niall asked later that evening when we were sitting in my room, scarfing down junk food like a bunch of girls who had just had their boyfriends dump them.

“I mean, thinking about it, kind of. How many relationships do you know of where the other significant others helps someone see the side piece, basically.”

“Fuck…” Niall sighed. “What are we going to do? If this gets out, it looks like their lives and our career may be shot to hell.”

“Yeah, I know…”

“But they’re just amazing…”

“You’re telling me? I don’t want to let her go but I know I have to…”

“How are you going to break it to her?” Niall asked me.

“How are you going to break it to Sophia?”

“Let’s not think about that right now. How about we deal with that in the morning and right now just…try to process what exactly is happening.”

“Good idea. Let’s just eat like broken hearted bitches.”

“That’s exactly what we’re going…” Niall pointed out, making me half smile.

“I guess this is true…”



“WHAT THE FUCKING HELL DO YOU MEAN, GIVING UP YOUR THRONE?!” My mother screamed in my face in the conference hall after the Gala had ended.

“I’m not marrying someone I don’t love.”


“I did not chose to have this fucking life. I did not chose to have a fucking country. I do NOT want this fucking life.” I demanded getting into my mother’s face. She turned pale and looked like she was about to.

“We will discuss this in the morning when emotions have calmed down.” My father said, not offering much of anything. He dragged my mother out of the room, who was still bitching and crying about how I was ruining her life while I stood there. I couldn’t decide whether to cry and be happy…that I would be able to be Harry’s officially, without Aiden in the way. The news was so good, I had to tell him myself.



“Mate, Bethany’s here.” Zayn said, knocking on my door. Niall got up and walked out as Bethany walked in with this huge smile on her face.

“Why so smiley?” I asked as she threw her arms around me.

“I’ve made the decision to give up my thrown…so we can be together!” I went quiet, not sure what to say. Did I want to be with her, oh hell yes but not like this. I was not about to ask her to give up her entire life just for me.

“Uhm no.” I finally said.

“Excuse me…?” Bethany said, moving away from me so she could see my face.

“I said no. You have a duty to this country, you have a chance to change the world and I’m not about to stop you from doing so. I know that you can do amazing things and have amazing idea and I am not about to let you give all that up just for me.”

“But I want to…” She whispered.

“No you don’t. You just want to think you do because what we have is amazing. But I’m not going to allow that. You should go home, you should go back to your life. Aiden is probably waiting for you…”

“Seriously?! I figure out how to make this work and you push me away and tell me that you don’t want it?! That you don’t want me?!”

“Of course I want you, Bethany! But I’m not going to ask you to give up your entire life just so we can be together! If we are meant to be, one day it will happen but right now…it’s just not the time…” Bethany’s eyes started to tear up and so were mine but I wouldn’t let them spill over, unlike her. I pushed the hair away from her face and kissed her softly one last time. “I love you Bethany…and I’ll still be here one day, when it our time. When it’s time for it to be our love story, we will make it worth it without all the lying and cheating.” Instead of her saying anything, she got up, looking angry, hurt, and sad and stormed out of the house in my guess, tears.

“What was that about?” Zayn asked, coming to my door.

“She said she was going to give her throne up for me. I told her no and that she had to go home.”


“You were right, mate. What we were doing is wrong and if she and I are meant to be, then it will happen correctly and not this way.” Zayn nodded and sat down on the bed next to me.

“Are you going to be okay?”

“Probably not but…you know me; always have a smile on my face; good or bad.”

“This is very true. I am proud of you though mate.”

“Thanks…” I said sadly as Zayn left, closing my door behind him. That was it. I just broke the most perfect girl; I broke her heart…



“Okay…we’ve come to a decision…” My father started.

“So have I. I was stupid yesterday and I was being childish. I am ready to make my rightful claim to throne and marry Aiden to join our two countries in unity with marriage.” Both my parents looked shocked but nodded.

“So…wedding plans?”

“Yes. However, I would like to tell Aiden I accept his proposal before we start planning.”

“Yes, of course. He will be here in a few hours.” My mother said.

“Thank you. Please ring for me when he is here.” Both my parents just started at me and I walked out of the conference hall, only feeling worse than I had yesterday.

“So did mom and dad say they were letting you free?!” Sophia asked me.


“What happened?!” Sophia said, stopping dead in the hall.

“I told them to start planning mine and Aiden’s wedding.”

“What?! What happened with Harry when you went to see him last night?!”

“He broke up with me.” I said, not stopping.

“WHAT?!” Sophia asked, running to keep up with me.  

“Well…this is me doing my job. I’m claiming the throne and I will be Queen and this is how it will be.”


“I suggest you speak with Niall. I have a feeling from what Harry said to me, you’ll be getting a similar speech from Niall very soon.” At that point I knew Sophia was done questioning me because she was no longer next to me. I felt tears pricking my eyes but I did what I had to do; for her, for me, for my parents, and most of all…for my country.
