Forbidden Love

Tara and Crispin love each other but they aren't allowed to be together. As the son and daughter of rival rulers of two kingdoms they are forced to take drastic measures to be together. Even if it means giving up the throne.

Based on the song Love Story - Taylor Swift


1. The Start Of A Storm

My name is Tara, currently im 27, married and have one child. I have long Dark brown hair and Green eyes.

I live on an island called Calyptica. It's in the middle of an ocean, it's really small and has never appeared on a map. (Probably because nobody can find it). I'm the daughter of King Cleanthis, he didn't rule over all of Calyptica. Just one of the kingdoms. We had to share the island with another family call the Brutus's. When I was little I used to sneak into the other kingdom with the help of a boy a little bit older than me. We were friends but one day my father caught me and forbade me to ever speak to him again. I don't know who he was but I always see him at the Civil Day Festival Ball. He had Pearl White hair and bright green eyes.

The two kingdoms lived in constant hatred of each other we weren't allowed to talk or even communicate, apart from one day a year called the Civil Day Festival. It's an annual holiday where everyone who lives on the island gets together and acts as though everyone likes each other whereas on a normal day if you spoke to someone from another kingdom it would be like world war 3.

August 17th was the Civil Day Festival and the day of the annual Civil Day Ball. I was 17 and it was the day that my mother and father looked for a suitable man for me to marry, little did I know it was the day my life changed forever. I remember that day. Let me take you back 10 years ago to the 17th of August. It was the day that I met the man who I would fall in love with unconditionally and marry.

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes
And the flashback starts
I'm standing there
On a balcony in summer air

It was lunch time and the Annual Day Festival Ball had just started I had gone and stood on the balcony so I could watch the dancing but not take part. I hated dancing and if I did my dad would try to set me up with some weird Count. The kings of both kingdoms had just given their speeches and shaken hands to begin the Civil Celebrations. My father and the Queen of the other Kingdom took to the floor first as did the king of the other kingdom and my mother. I saw the boy with white hair and green eyes he was coming through the constantly filling dance floor and stood next to me on the balcony.

See the lights
See the party, the ball gowns
See you make your way through the crowd
And say hello

"Hello" He said to me. It was weird his voice sounded so familiar and yet I hadn't spoken to him since I was 6.

"Hi" I replied my voice slightly shaking with nerves.

"You don't remember me do you?" he said looked at me his eyes slightly squinting

"Yeah I do, we used to sneak into the other kingdom together"

"Yes only you're the other kingdom to me. The kingdom we sneaked into was mine. Well my fathers, soon to be mine"

"You're Crispin?!" I shouted, my mouth was open in surprise. Crispin was the prince of the other kingdom.

"Didn't you know?" he asked surprised that I didn't realise who he was

"N-no I didn't. My father doesn't really like talking about you so I didn't know who you were"

"Well anyway, do you want to dance?" he asked me

"Yeah sure" we walked out into the middle of the dance floor and began to dance. As we started everyone around us began to stare and soon enough nobody else was dancing. All at once the music was stopped. we broke apart and looked round confused we soon realised that our parents were staring at us their faces didn't look to pleased.

"Tara step away from that boy"
"Dad what, why?"
You know why, you are fraternising with the enemy"
"The enemy, Today we're friends"
"No, we will never be friends with them. This stops now"
"Cleanthis all they did was dance, leave the two alone"
"Silence Vivian" Vivian was my mother "come. We leave now"


My father stormed out, my mother followed. I stood looking at Crispin, he pulled me into his arms and kissed me on my lips. I was then suddenly aware of Guards surrounding us holding us apart then I was pulled to the dungeons.
