Zelena

Sunlight streamed through my windows and I was bathed in its warmth. The little birdies sang a merry tune and kindly asked me to open my eyes so I wouldn’t miss out on this perfect day. Today I was to be married to the kind and noble King Robin Hood of Sherwood Forrest. I knew Robin and I would be equally pleased with each other and the setting couldn’t be more perfect. My wedding dress was made of silk and had a white tulle material over it. In the tulle material were tiny little pearls. My sleeves were elbow length and the edges had little pearls stitched into them. My veil was a layer upon layers of Belgian lace with even more little pearls. My favorite part of my wedding attire was my glass slippers. My perfect little glass slippers to make the wedding even more magnificent and on top of it all I was at last allowed to wear Mother’s diamond tiara upon my copper curls.

8. Birth of an Heir

Robin sat on his silver throne with Damien standing in his black shirt at Robin’s side. Robin wore a blue satin uniform and wore his favorite golden crown. His golden crown was my favorite as well. I remembered that I forgot to put on my silver crown. As luck would have it Esmeralda, another lady, came up and gave me my tiara. She put it on my head and kissed my hand.

“Thanks Esme.”

“No problem Zelena.”

I turned to face Robin and could see the gigantic smile on his face. I walked up to him and sat on his lap. I glanced around the room and didn’t see Regina anywhere. I asked Robin with a little smile and he gestured towards the stairs to Regina’s chambers. She was probably changing into something more comfortable. The pains grew stronger but I ignored the pain. Robin saw my grimace and asked me gently what the matter was.

“Zelena, what is wrong?”

“The baby has hiccups.”
“Do not lie to me Zelena. It has had hiccups before and you were not in this much pain. What is the matter?”

“The baby is coming. I can feel it’s head but I want to see my sister. My water broke two days ago and I didn’t say anything. I wanted to see my sister.”

“Your water broke two days ago!”

Thank God Regina came into the throne room at that exact moment. She hadn’t changed out of her yellow dress but she had pulled up her hair and adorned it with a diamond tiara. She curtseyed upon entering. It didn’t matter if I was her sister she had to show respect.  I was the queen of her country and of her new one. I ruled two countries with her lover. I hoped Robin had already discussed that when they married she would become Princess Consort and be able to pass laws only with my consent and the King’s consent.

“Your Majesty, you look well.”

“I am well Lady Regina.”

“Dear Sister, Robin has so lovingly told me that I am to be Princess!”

“Princess Consort. You’re new title with be Her Royal Highness Princess Regina of Enchantria and Princess Consort of Sherwood Under their royal majesties Queen Zelena and King Robin.”

“That’s an extremely long title. How will I be acknowledged at court?”

“ Princess Consort Regina and your children as lady and lords.”

“What about your children?”

“Princesses and Princes of Enchantria and Sherwood.”

“Really? I am going to be his wife. Robin do you have no input?”

“Regina what you must learn is when the Queen is speaking to a subject the King is not allowed to interfere or talk about the subject when the conversation is done.”

“Okay that odd? It’s not like that in Enchantria.”

“It will soon be because I am queen.”

“What will my other addresses be at court?”

“Princess Consort or Duchess Regina. Your decision.”

“I am to be Robin’s wife and I should also be consider queen.”

“NO Regina I am Robin’s queen you are his mistress but married so duchess.”

Regina turned on her heel and left the throne room. She needed to learn her place. She couldn’t always have everything. Hell she was taking my husband and that’s all she could have of my kingdoms. When she left I got off Robin’s lap and sat in my throne. He turned to me and spoke.

“That was harsh. She is your sister after all.”

“And she’s your bitch. I am the queen and I suggest both of you remember that!”

“Zelena I no longer love Regina. I love you and the baby that grows in you is a perfect example of my love!”

“I just was wondering whose child you would crown heir. And if I don’t produce you sons her sons will rule my kingdoms.”

“Zelena the law of the land states the the firstborn CHILD of the King’s QUEEN is ruler. Even if you have a daughter she’ll be queen.”

I wanted to sink down to the floor and cry. I wanted to kiss Robin will all of my love. I hated being pregnant and at that very moment pain shot through my little body and I knew the baby wanted to be born into it’s beautiful world. I stood up and collapsed again. I looked at Robin with pain in my eyes and whispered.

“The baby is coming! You’re going to be a daddy today. You’re going to be a daddy and I shall be a mother.”
