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.

5. The End of the Honeymoon

 Each night of the honeymoon consisted of our sacred ritual and the dance of our bodies. Each morning Robin would go downstairs to the kitchen and retrieve his queen’s breakfast. Each day after I finished eating we would go down to either the stables to retrieve horses to ride to the archery field or walk together with a picnic basket to the meadow. Each evening a new dress would be conjured up and dinner would be eaten in the dining room. Myself at one end of the long table and Robin at the other end, doe eyes would be shared and so would yearn looks.

I was deeply saddened to leave the honeymoon spot a month later and return to Robin’s castle. At the same time I was excited to tell Robin the good news in the carriage ride home. All my new dresses were packed in trunks and a green riding dress was produced for me to wear home. I had good news to share. I was pregnant with Robin’s baby and I hoped the baby would make Robin reconsider his choice to marry my sister. I had figured out my pregnancy the night before last when I felt a hard knot in my abdomen. The physician confirmed my thoughts. I paid him extra so he wouldn’t tell the king.

After about an hour of riding in a silent carriage ride I decided to break the silence. Robin had been cold and distant since we left the mansion.  I simply thought he was just thinking about his choices. About the choices made with haste, maybe he was thinking of Regina and that gave me every thought to just go ahead and tell him.  I cleared my throat and he still didn’t look up, I moved around trying to get his attention. He was still completely deep in thought.

“Robin. Robin. Robin!”

His head snapped towards me and he gave me a cold hard stare. He clenched his teeth and it truly frightened me.

“What? What is it?”

“Well never mind.”

I turned me head and stared out the window. My hand instinctively moved towards my abdomen but I stopped myself just in time. He turned towards me and tried to apologize.

“My apologies Zelena. I seem to be quite nervous. I’m deciding on what to tell you or how to break this to you without too much collateral damage. What is it you were going to say?”

“What are you trying to tell me?”

“ You go first.”

“No the king goes first. It’s the law in my land and I’m sure it’s the same in ours.”

“As you know I made a promise to the adjacent kingdoms and to your father that I would only have you if I could have your sister.”

“You don’t love me?”

I was upset. After all I’ve done for him and after all I’ve done. He still was going to marry that bastard sister of mine. That brat was getting everything. She was still getting my husband and I was carrying his child. If we weren’t in a carriage I would have ran but no I just turned around and cried.

“No Zelena, I love you with all my heart. Before we were married I told Regina that I didn’t love you and soon she would be my wife. That instant I kissed you and touched your lips I realized that I don’t love your sister. I love you and loving her was all just some outside force keeping me from you and I don’t think it was your sister. It was dark magic and Zelena I love you. This past month has made me love you even more.”

“Are you still going to marry Regina?”

“That’s the problem I don’t know how to tell her I’m not.”

“Don’t worry what I have to say might already tell her when she finds out.”
