"The lady of this event is my lovely daughter, Rosalinda," Father introduces me to the huge crowd of people in the ballroom.
I put on a smile as I enter the room. The clapping overtakes me as I give a small wave before walking into the crowd.
"And the man of this event, my future son-in-law, Zack Highwater."
The clapping starts again, but I'm too busy looking for Mason to care what Zack does.
Someone taps me on the shoulder and I quickly turn to face them. "Mason, you scared me half to death," I playfully slap his arm.
"Sorry Rosa," Mason smiles. "Care to dance?"
I smile back, "Sounds great to me."
*A Few Hours Later*
"That was so much fun," I laugh as Mason, Emilia, and I enter my house.
"I have to agree with on that," Emilia says. "I even met someone."
"And who would that be?" Mason asks.
"The Baker's son," she smiles.
"You want to be a Baker's wife?" I ask.
She nods her head, "It's better than being a servant's wife. No offense to you or Mason. I just don't want to marry someone in my same profession." We reach Emilia's room and she smiles at Mason and I. "It's been a lovely night, and I'll see you two in the morning."
"Goodnight," I smile.
She enters her room and then Mason and I continue to our room.
"I had the best time with you tonight," Mason pulls me close to him.
"Me too," I smile. "We should get changed and get to bed. I've got to rest so I can get back to my studies."
He smiles, "Fine. You know, I love you."
"I love you."
Then he gently connects our lips. His lips are so soft and I can't believe that he's mine and I'm his.
*A Few Days Later*
"You called for me Father," I enter Father's office and take a seat in the seat in front of his desk.
"Yes, I need to ask you some questions," Father gives me a small smile.
"Did you have fun at the ball?"
"Did you ever dance with Zack?"
"Because a nice, cute, young man came up to me and said I was beautiful. Then we asked if I wanted to dance. I said yes, and then every worry of life drifted away. I felt like it was just the two of us in the whole world."
"That's too bad. Zack is waiting for you outside, and he really wants to talk. Probably about that."
I stand up, "I can't wait to hear what he has to say."
