Her boyfriend Merlin is put under a spell and her brother older Arthur isn't real. she created a place called paradise but will her paradise rise and conquer or crash and burn, taking everything with it.


9. the perfect life

Weeks had past and Alexis was still looked up in the tower but Alexis was happy. In her head she had created a little world she visits when she sleeps, she called it ‘paradise’. Alexis lay in the corner of the room with her eyes tightly closed and talking slightly as she slept.

“You can do better than that!” Alexis laughed holding her sword down by her leg. A blonde boy a few inches taller than Alexis stood up and raised his sword,
“Is that a challenge?” he teased
“If you want it to be” Alexis smiled then striked but the boy was too fast and had Alexis down on the floor before she could stop him.
“Still think I can do better?” he asked pinning her to the floor with his sword. Alexis held her hands up in surrender
“Ok, ok you win” she said with defeat.
“Arthur, let the girl go” a maid walked across the knights training ground “I have to get her ready for the feast” Arthur smiled and pulled Alexis to her feet
“Thank you” Alexis said brushing herself off, she turned to the maid “but I’ve told you Gwen, I don’t need your help, help Morgana instead” Gwen smiled
“Yes my lady” she nodded and walked away. Alexis turned to Arthur
“Round two?” and before anyone could stop them they were fighting again.

A little later on, Alexis was sat in her chamber brushing her hair when there was a knock on the door,
“Come in” she called. Merlin opened the door and smiled,
“Sorry to bovver you” Alexis smiled, put her brush down and stood up
“You’re never a bovver Merlin” Merlin laughed a little
“Arthur wouldn't agree” she walked towards him
“Then Arthur’s a clot pole
“That’s my word” Merlin complained. They laughed slightly “anyway, Morgana wanted me to check on you, you’re running late for the dinner again” Alexis smiled
“A princess is never late, everyone else is just simply early” Merlin smiled,
“I’ll remember that next time I'm late”

Uther, Morgana and Arthur were sitting in the hall eating dinner when the doors opened and Alexis walked in.
“You’re late” Uther said looking at her
“Sorry” she said sitting down “I was… um
“You were…?”
“Talking, talking to Gwaine” she smiled, she had to lie, Uther didn't know about her and Merlin yet.
OK then” they ate in silence for a few moments before,
“Father?” Arthur said “I've been meaning to tell you something”
“What is it?” Arthur was quite for a moment
I'm in love” he said.
“Oh?” Uther said “with whom?” Arthur was quite again, “Arthur?”
“Gwen” he said simply.
“I knew it!” Morgana and Alexis chorused,
“You? Wait you two knew?” he looked at Morgana
“Well I figured it out” she said, Uther nodded then looked at Alexis
“He might have… well told me”
“What!” Morgana and Uther snapped,
“This is why I didn't want to tell you!” Arthur snapped at Uther “you would have reacted like that!” he got up and left.
“I’ll go,” Alexis stood up and followed Arthur out. Morgana and Uther were gob smacked.

“Arthur!” Alexis called hurrying after him, “Arthur wait!”
“What?!” he said stopping and spinning to face her sharply,
“You did the right thing” Alexis said brushing a strand of her golden hair out of her smiling face.
“Father doesn't think so” he said
“Screw father!” Alexis blurted out
“It’s your feelings not his!” Arthur sighed
“You have a point”
“I always do” she smiled. Arthur smiled back at his little sister,
“Now come on” he said linking arms with his smaller sibling
“Where are we going?”
“It’s an important day tomorrow and you are not going to be late” he said leading her towards her chambers “get some sleep, I’ll send Merlin to wake you and to make sure you’re not late” he smirked, “you’d love that now wouldn't you?” Alexis smiled and blushed
“Shut up” she said pushing him slightly, Arthur chuckled
“Come on, everyone knows there’s something going on there” Arthur pointed out.
