~~Maeve’s POV:

We’ve been here with my aunt and uncle for about a week, and my head is starting to feel a little better, which is nice, and for the most part, everyone who was hurt is beginning to really heal and become better.

Harry got the stitches they put in his arm taken out today, and although his arm hurts and is still sore, he said he’s really feeling much better, and the medicine is also working really well for him.

I’ve been spending most of my time with Harry, and then we hang out with the guys a lot, and obviously we have three meals a day with my aunt and uncle. Brendan and Chelsea have also been giving me updates on how soon they think things should be settled back home, and also how the plans for everything are working out. Honestly, I’m not really sure if I want the throne, or to go back home without my family. I mean, I have Harry and all, but it will be so different and strange being back in the castle without my parents and siblings.

I really miss them a lot, and I’m not really sure what I’m supposed to do honestly. I mean, of course I miss them, that’s a given. I know they’re somewhere that no one can hurt them in now though, which means they’re safe. Also, Jonathan told me that if my parents had lived, the wounds they had received would have made them suffer a lot, possibly for the rest of their lives. Also, I was raised as a member of a royal family, and so I was taught that sometimes we have to make really hard sacrifices, and things happen that are horrible, but we can’t let those things stop us from doing what’s best for the people.

I honestly don’t think a young girl who doesn’t really know anything about ruling a country and has no interest in a political marriage is what’s best for the people. I mean, the one person in this world who I want to marry is Harry, and I don’t know if anyone would approve of that even now as a princess, but especially not as a queen. My marriage was going to help solidify relations with allies I’m quite certain, and that’s what’s really best for the people.

I can’t do that though.

I sigh, and Harry asks, “What are you thinking about princess?”

I say, “I just… Harry, I don’t think I can go back… I don’t think that I want to go back…”

He asks, “What do you mean? If you’re scared, you don’t have to worry about any of those idiots there… We’ll protect you and make sure that no one can hurt you. You don’t have to be scared or anything like that anymore, it’s all going to be okay.”

I shake my head a little and look up at him, “But they’ll expect me to marry someone royal as queen, you know, from another country.. probably Ahlistria as they have a strong army and are an ally.”

He’s quiet, and I say, “I don’t want to do that though, because my heart belongs to someone else…”

He smiles, and kisses me softly, “I promise that we’ll work it out Maeve, really. I’ll help you, and we’ll figure something out together, okay?”

I nod a little, and say, “Either way, I’m not going back if I can’t be with you, and I mean it. I never even really wanted the country. I always knew one of my siblings, probably Nate, and if not him, Robin was excited to become queen…”

He says, “It’ll be okay, you don’t have to worry.”

I nod, and close my eyes, and just lay there listening to his heart beat in his chest. It’s so nice, and I’m just so happy that now I can be with Harry like this. I mean, before I didn’t really realize that I felt this way, but now I do, and I’m so happy. Maybe Brendan and Chelsea can help us find another heir, like one of our cousins or something… Maybe they could just join the kingdom with theirs. That would be nice. We’ve always been allies, and the cultures aren’t very different. Brendan and Chelsea are also so kind and caring; they’re wonderful as king and queen. Then I could also still be in the royal family and everything like that.

I’ll have to remember to mention that sometime. I mean, it’s worth suggesting at the very least. That’s a way I’d know I wasn’t letting my kingdom down, and I could be with Harry.
