2. The rehersal dinner cont.

"Yes I hear you!" Merida groaned as she awoke from her nap.

She looked outside to see it was nearly dusk, she hopped off her bed and called for her chamber maid.

"Maudie! I need you!" she shouted.

In an instant the plump chamber maid came bobbing in. She had Merida's sea green dress in her hands.

"Ugh, not that one, I won't be able to breathe!" Merida protested.

"Oh shush now," Maudie said, "This is the nicest gown you have, and your mother insisted."

Merida was no easy task to dress, after pulling the gown over her wild mane of red hair, the hard part came. The head dress. It was Merida's least favorite article of clothing. Maudie called several other chamber maids to brush and pin Merida's hair while she tried to put the head dress on. Merida's protests were soon drowned out when after twenty minutes of struggle the blasted thing was one.

"You look beautiful, princess." Maudie said tearing up.

Merida merely scowled and struggled to move her arms put they remained pinned to her sides. Her mother came in and smiled.

"Oh Merida you look lovely, now come along the Lords are here." she said ushering her out of the roms.

"And Maudie, be sure the boys are read." the queen said.

At this Maudie turned stark white.

    The hall was crowed as there were many long tables pulled out for the celebration. Merida's wedding was to take place in seven days, just before the first blossom of spring bloomed. Her mother ushered her to the throne room where the entire family was gathering.

Her brothers, Hamish, Hubert, and Harris, even though they  were now ten years of age they still loved to play their  usual tricks, stealing pastries and shortening the legs on chairs. Merida couldn't help but chuckle,At least some people are enjoying themselves. Merida struggled to sit down as her mother began ordering every one take their places. Finally she managed to sit up and some what breathe. Suddenly she began laughing so hard the dress began to grow tighter around her abdomen. She watched as her father the great bear king walked to his throne muttering and grumbling. Queen Elinor had some how managed to get him to wear the royal attire, which was basically a frilly cape and crown. Suddenly the trumpets and bagpipes sounded announcing the arrival of the firsts guests.

The doors opened to reveal the three neighboring clans, Macintosh, MacGuffin, and Dingwall. They strode in with great pride, the group size was smaller than the first time they had all come to DunBroch castle. Only the main families and a few clan members were present. The clans walked up to the thrones and bowed then clan Dingwall advanced, and Wee Dingwall went to greet his future wife.

Merida had decided to pick Wee Dingwall because she figured since he could make her laugh it was the best bet, since she had nothing in common with the other two suitors. Merida welcomed Wee Dingwall as he kissed her hand. He went back to join his father as King Fergus attempted to make a speech.

"Well, here we are all together again. Right, so now that the a suitor...t- er..."

"By the end of this week, two clans will become one!" Queen Elinor said standing to join her husband.

Several cheers went up and Queen Elinor decided to move onto dinner, everyone cleared out of the room, and Merida struggled to stand.

"Need any assistance princess?" a voice said to her.

She looked to see Wee Dingwall at her side. He'd grown in the past year since Merida had picked him as her future husband. He no longer was small, lanky and there was no trace of a far off look that used to glaze his eyes. He was now taller than her and stronger. He was more alert and he proved handy with a sword, though he was still sweet and his voice was soft.

"Oh thank you." she said as he lifted her to her feet

"Aye, of course princess."

"You know you can call me Merida."

"I know, but I prefer to call you princess, as it is your title." he said.

"I suppose," Merida sighed.

"Well let us be off to the feast." Wee Dingwall said.

"Right lets-"

Suddenly there was a knock on the door. Merida turned to Wee Dingwall who merely shrugged. Not wanting to be a moment longer to the feast, Merida called to the nearest guard to keep an eye on the door, as she told her mother. She grabbed Wee Dingwall's hand and they ran to the dining hall.
