3. A New Mommy?

Annalise sits in her bedroom on a beautiful stool in front of a huge mirror. Her nurse brushes her strawberry blonde locks and makes the curls smooth and beautiful. She wears a beautiful white dress and a huge crown made out of wires and diamonds on her head. Annalise stares into the mirror and smiles.

“I look like a princess.” Her nurse, Serena, bends down to plant a kiss on her cheek.

“You look like your mommy.”

“What does my mommy look like.”

            Serena pulls out her phone and pulls up a picture of the late Queen Adelaide. The picture’s at least ten years old but nevertheless it’s a picture of Queen Addie. Serena holds out the phone for Annalise to see and Annalise smiles when she sees her mommy smiling back at her from the picture.

“She’s pretty. My mommy’s pretty. Why am I getting dressed up?”

“Because in a few days you get to pick a new mommy.”

“A new mommy? Why do I need a new one?” Annalise starts crying and runs to her bedroom. She buries her face in her pillows and cries. Serena gathers the princess into her arms and talks to the princess with care.

“Annalise, don’t you remember your mommy’s gone. Your daddy thinks you need a new one but no one will ever replace your mommy.”

“So, I can call the new one “Mommy” if I want. I’ve never called anyone “Mommy”

“Yes, you can if you want. It’s going to be okay. You’re getting dressed up because something wonderful is happening today.”

            Annalise jumps up and runs out of her bedroom. She runs down the hall and smiles when she sees her daddy coming out of his office wearing a nice suit. Edward’s wearing a black tuxedo and his golden crown on his head. He wears a red tie. Edward smiles when he sees Annalise is wearing a beautiful white dress and wearing her beautiful diamond and silver crown. He lifts his daughter up into his arms and holds her close to him. He kisses her cheek and she giggles.

“I love you Anna.”

“I love you too Daddy.”

“Are you ready?”

“Ready for what?” Edward stares at his daughter and she giggles.

“Yes, Serena told me. Is it true? Am I going to get a new mommy?”

            When you put it like that, I’m not sure if I like it. You’re not getting a new mommy. Are you? I’m not even sure if I want to do this. All those women going to be there. All those commoners…I hope anyone not qualified doesn’t attend.

“Yes, you are. Annalise Leigh you’re going to get a new mommy.” Edward lets Annalise down and she squeezes his hand. They walk into the throne room and Edward lifts Annalise up into his lap. Cynthia comes in wearing a sensible dress and a smile on her face. Cynthia curtseys and then addresses the king and princess.

“Edward, Annalise. I am here to inform you how this process is going to work. We have a lot of qualified bachelorettes lined up outside the throne room doors. Annalise when one comes in that you like all you say is point and say “I like her.” There will be four that you choose. Those four women or future ‘mommy’ will take part in spending a week with you. At the end of the month, there will be a wedding and at the wedding you will decide which one you want to be your mommy.”

“What if I like two?”

“Then one can be your mommy and one can be your governess.” Annalise nods because she really likes that idea.

“What if I like all four?” Cynthia frowns and stares at Edward. It’s the king who cuts in to inform his daughter.

“If you like all four then Daddy will choose. Remember Anna, this new mommy will be your mommy for the rest of your life. For years and years and years. Don’t forget Daddy’s only 30. You get a mommy and a governess.”

“But what if I like all four?”

“Then you get a governess, a new mommy, and…well honestly I don’t know yet. Wait and see…okay baby?”

“Okay Daddy.” Annalise gets adjusted on Edward’s lap and Cynthia gets ready to start letting possible mothers into the throne room. Annalise is a bit scared because she’s never done this before.
