The Two Sides Of Royalty

It is the year 1910, and Jane May has been arranged to be married to the Duke of Dorset on her 16th birthday. She understands that this experience will change her life forever, changing her status from a normal teenager in the 19th century to the Duchess of Dorset, but she wants the best of both worlds: to keep her 2 year relationship with her lover, Edward, but at the same time, to marry William. She has wanted royalty from a young age, but knows that by marrying the Duke, she will not be able to see Edward.
Unfortunately, she does not have the choice to decide the path of her life, and so life of a Duchess begins. She adores the privacy, William, and the expensive dresses she receives, but she also has to keep her secret: sneaking out to see Edward. As her life as the Duchess of Dorset goes on, she finds that William is not the perfect Duke, or the prince of her dreams. He has some dark secrets too...

18. Let's go back

I dream of the times I had, and I know that with Victoria around, Charles will be treated as one of her own.

As I drift away, I am at complete piece with myself, reaching Nirvana finally, and that everything changes, nothing stays the same, ever.

I allow my body to rest finally, knowing that everything will be alright, as long as I breathe.

 

Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

In the last few moments, I reach complete peace, and I am able to smile, after so long, the tears streaming down my face has dried, and the anger has died, the hurt has gone and I'm finally moving on.

My smile reaches heaven, and the silence around me feels so beautiful, so calming, and I am so relaxed.

I do not want to open my eyes anymore.

I do not want to hurt anymore.

I go back to the first time I saw William in the town hall, the first time he held me, the first time he danced with me, and my vision is clear. He talks to me, whispering gently in my ear, and I feel his hair brush against my neck.

The music continues, and as it ends, he pushes me away from him, looking deep into my eyes.

It was Beautiful.

Going back to the time when he proposed, and I agreed, the first time I stepped into the palace, and saw my room, the room I once shared with William, and not so long ago, and the memories make me dizzy, filling every piece of me.

I wish that things have gone differently, I wish that the love between us could have been true.

I wonder what life could have been like if I'd have said no and ran away with Edward instead.

I then go back to when I visited Edward in the middle of the night, and for the first time since then, I am not afraid, I am not sorry, and I do not regret it, because I saw Edward again, and the night was perfect, even though it wasn't wishing that it could have ended differently.

But in these last moments, I spent the most time going back to when Edward and I were kids.

Care-free, young, brave at heart, and we loved each other from the beginning, where it went wrong? You tell me.

I was 7 and he was 9, I looked at him like the stars that shined, in the sky, the pretty lights.

The time when our life was one block wide, I dared him to kiss me, and ran when he tried, we were just two kids.

Him and me.

I'd always thought that I'd be 87 and he'd  be 89, and I'd still look at him like the stars that shined, in the sky.

Because I was only me when I was with him.

As I think of the memories, fresh teardrops fall from my eyes and drop onto my pillow.

Oh My My My
