5. Godfather

"As I live and breathe, Bernadette, how are you my dear?" he says wrapping me into a hug.

My Godfather, Roland Winter. Once a year we see each other on my birthday. He is a plump small man with rosy cheeks and a white beard that goes to the top of his pot belly along with brilliant crystal blue eyes. He has a son, my age, named Vince. We have absolutely no relation through blood as far as I know. But after finding out that stuff about my true life, I don't know what is real or what isn't.

"Did you know?" I ask looking into his crystal eyes.

"Err.. Know what Bernadette?" he asks.

"About me? I mean the truth?" I ask entering the house and sinking into a comfy chair.

"What do you know?" He asks with a sigh.

"That I'm not really a princess. That I was found in an alley when I was three. That my entire upbringing was a lie." I let the tears stream down my face, holding back any sobs.

"How did you find out..?" He asks slowly.

"The will my fath-the King left behind." I state plainly staring into the flickering fire in the corner of the room.

"Yes, I knew, I was with your father when he found you." I flinch at the sound of the king as my father.

"Why did no one tell me?" I ask feeling another set of tears escape my eyes.

"Because... You're fragile, you were always so easily broken. Even now, you're hurt more than ever. This is why." He explains showing sincere sympathy. He was right, I have never been able to handle pain and loss well, but nothing has ever happened to me that compares to this. Nothing.

"I have lived a lie... I'm nothing like the person I thought I was! Is my name even Bernadette?!" I ask desperately, maybe I'm being a little overdramatic by asking such a ridiculous question.

"We-well..." He starts slowly rubbing the back of his neck awkwardly.

"Oh. My. Gosh!" My entire body freezing.
