~Chapter Twenty-Five~
 
~Second thoughts~
 
 
I looked at the man standing beside me, Fugard, tall, handsome, strong, everything someone would look for in a husband but every time I looked at him something inside me stirred restlessly, not in away that made me smile, and get goose-flesh, but in away that made me think I wasn’t doing the right thing.
 
“Milady, are you alright?” questioned Fugard with a slight frown, taking in my expression, somehow he always knew when something was wrong.
“No, I’m fine thank-you Fugard.” I answered in return.
“Milady…?” He asked, not looking at me, a frown on his own face.
“Yes Fugard, what is it?” I asked, slightly worried myself, he never showed one ounce of anything besides happiness when he was near.
“Are you sure you want to marry me?” He asked a boyish scowl on his face making me laugh when he looked up startled at my laugh, he then too smiled.
“Of course I am!” I said, before kissing him quickly on the lips and exiting the room, why was it that when ever we stole and few quick kisses it wouldn’t burn with a familiar… sensation?
 
It had been nagging at me for weeks and I couldn’t put my finger on it.
I must be going mad, I thought before throwing one quick glance over my shoulder at Fugard, and when I turned I didn’t see him, instead I saw a black haired man with cold coal black eyes, and deathly pale skin.
I shook my head, quickly, my heart beating erratically, my vision cleared and then their stood Fugard, I smiled to him, walking away, not sure what I had just seen.

Fugard’s point of view
 
“I don’t know if I’m doing the right thing.” I said turning on the Shoul, angered by what he proposed.
“You love her don’t you?” He questioned, ignoring my outburst.
“Of course, I would die for her majesty.” I professed.
The Shoul looked at me, a small smile donning his face.
“It’s funny how all the wrong people fall for her.” I frowned at him, confused at what he said.
“You a grown warrior,” he explained, “in love with her beyond your wits of imagination.” He clucked his tongue, chuckling.
I frowned once more, confused by the Shouls words.
“You marry that girl tomorrow, and be happy stop questioning if you’re doing the right thing by her, be happy for yourself.”
“She’s changed.” I stated.
“Of course she has, she’s seen the light, stopped being a stubborn girl, and realized that for the safety of this kingdom the right thing is to marry you.”
“She doesn’t love me.”
“She’ll learn to love you.” I looked to the Shoul, wondering what was really going on, and before I could consider what I was saying; I said;
“Sometimes she looks at me, and I think she sees someone else.”
The Shoul looked at me, his eyes glazing over, giving nothing away.
“Marry her tomorrow.” He said before he turned around and walked away.
