Halcyon [Mister + Assi] - R-18

Post by Assistant Jones on Tue Aug 21, 2012 5:55 am

To say that prince Alfred was unpleased with the arrangements between the Kingdoms of Columbia and Albion was clearly an understatement. While the two kingdoms have had their rough patches, both were hoping to bring these two kingdoms into an strong yet necessary alliance. Yet that didn't mean he was happy about it.

While he certainly enjoyed the peace that would come with their kingdoms being joined together through their bloodlines mixing, it didn't mean that he liked the circumstances that came with needing to form this bond.

Mainly marrying off his only sister, Madeline, to the damned son of the Kirkland family! All he desired was to give her a man that she would love, that she would adore and could live her life happily. Yet she had to be used as a political tool to bring their kingdoms together. Despite his arguments to both his mother and father to spare her the grief of marrying one of those stupid Albion royals (how stuck up they seemed), they were firm in their decision. To perdition with all of them!

Madeline was only at the age of 13 and he himself was only 14 but to be married at such an age. It truly wasn't uncommon but couldn't they wait?

Despite his anger though, his younger sister was always there to reassure him that he would be alright. Yet by no means was he happy about any of it. Though hopefully maybe this Prince Arthur would be a better man than he believed him to be.

Today was the day that he could decide. The Kirkland royal family was coming over to their castle in order to discuss whatever they discussed and along with them would be the prince that his sister was supposed to marry. Everything was prepared, an extravagant feast that wouldn't let down the taste of any royal along with entertainment worthy of the Kings and even the rose gardens were taken care of with more care than before.

And all Alfred could do was wait in front of the castle with his father, mother and the soon to be wedded Madeline.

Prince Arthur was the only son of his father, the King (despite the various illegitimate children that had also been from the fruit of his loins). He was next in line for the throne, with the exception of his father’s brother, his uncle Brutus. Arthur had been told since he was child that his destiny was to marry and become the beloved king of his country, loved (and feared) by all. He had no idea that it would all happen so suddenly, however.

For three years, he’d been betrothed to Madeline, whom he had never met. He had only seen paintings of her. It disgusted him slightly to know that he was going to marry a young girl. Since becoming of age, he had shared his bed with maids and the like, all of which were women. This girl was merely a child, although she would have aged since the portrait he had been given of her.

He could only hope that she was as lovely as her portrait.

Whilst he was somewhat irritated by the prospect that a part of his freedom as a young man should end, he was also exceptionally nervous. He had been dressed in fine robes and beautiful armour for this visit. He was to impress the other kingdom, to ‘wow’ them, as his mother had told him. However, as he rode through the crowd-filled streets of people, he felt increasingly more like a boy, less of a man. He was only sixteen. Far too young to be wed, as he saw it (despite his mother’s encouragements that she had married his father when she was just 9).

Arthur was known for his strength and agility when it came to sword fights. He’d been given the pleasure of duelling several times and thoroughly enjoyed it. His sword, within its sheath at his side gave him some comfort as they drew closer to the castle.

He could see her. She looked small, stood beside her family. He knew very little about her, and had no idea if he would ever learn to love her.

He came to a halt some feet away from the castle on his horse, Nihran. He watched his father dismount and did the same, giving his horse a grateful pat. It had taken them two days to travel there and he had not been stubborn once.

His father gestured for him to come forward and he did so, alongside his mother, who he helped to get down from her carriage. He was at his father’s side as they went forward to greet the other family.

Alfred had no illegitimate brothers or sisters, only his very blood connected sister Madeline and in this way, he felt an attachment with her. He didn't want to give her up so easily. Not to someone whom she never met as well. Not only that but the prince was older than her by a few years, from what he remembered his mother telling him. Why couldn't they wait? His own parents' marriage came later in their years, about the age of seventeen with his father only being a year older.

He personally didn't know all that much about Prince Arthur and in fact, he had not even once seen his painting. Madeline had of course but not himself.

He himself had come out of the training grounds with his tutor and while he was still sometimes a bit clumsy, he had strength as well as endurance and he definitely had potential to become a rather great swordsman one day. Yet for now, he just had to wait for experience to sharpen him up. Instead he stood tall and proud next to his sister, the protective spirit obviously showing in his eyes as the Kirkland family came up to his own.

His father shared a kind word of greeting and welcomed them to his kingdom before his mother nudged both Madeline and Alfred forward with a kind smile on her lips.

"These are my children, Princess Madeline and Prince Alfred of Columbia. Come now, say something you two," The King urged and they both looked up to the Kirkland family.

Madeline simply curtsied before standing back up straight, brushing her curly blonde locks back.

"It's nice to finally meet all of you, especially Prince Arthur. Your paintings do no justice at all," She commented lightly with a polite smile up to Arthur and Alfred settled his gaze on the boy he was pretty certain that he would hate.

Despite this, he gave a strained yet polite smile as he bowed slightly.

"Nice to meet all of you. I hope you enjoy your stay here in the Kingdom of Columbia."

With a satisfied smile, his father nodded and urged them all to come into the castle. "You must all be hungry after your long trip. Come in and we can eat."

Arthur’s mother curtsied before the other royal family out of respect and Arthur bowed when addressed by the Princess and Prince.

“My son, Prince Arthur of Albion,” his father introduced him, briefly.

Arthur looked curiously between the two teenagers, glancing over their facial features and appearance. Alfred looked incredibly strong and was much more thickly built than himself. He and his sister were very similar in looks; Madeline was very pretty. She had large, almond-shaped eyes which Arthur had to admit were somewhat captivating. But her youth was still extremely prominent in the slight roundness of her faces and her still-developing figure.

He smiled slowly, seeing as this was the girl that he would be wed to. It could be a lot, lot worse.

“I also must say the same for you, Princess,” he replied pleasantly. “You are far fairer than I ever would have hoped.” He looked across to Alfred, almost able to see through the falseness in that smile. He nodded his head. “Thank you.”

“I must admit that I am rather famished,” chuckled Arthur’s father. He watched as servants came to collect their belongings and take the horses to the stables. He ushered his wife and Arthur ahead before following the other King.

Arthur swallowed thickly, glancing at Madeline again. She was lovely. Very lovely… but this didn’t feel right. Hopefully his mind would change once he had spoken to her for a bit?

Alfred nearly felt as if he was about to gag with Arthur's words though he had to admit that he was rather fascinated by their accents. They were quite different despite the kingdom being rather close to their own. At least they spoke the same language yet their cultural differences were still evident as well as their way of dress.

In the end, he knew that it was extremely beneficial for Madeline to marry Prince Arthur though he still really wasn't all that happy about it. Hopefully the other prince would leave a favourable impression so he wouldn't feel as many qualms about letting his younger sister marry him.

Though he had to admit that after a long day of training, he was rather hungry himself so at least the food would settle down his anxiety.

Madeline seemed to be somewhat flustered over Arthur's eloquent words but she simply smiled. "You're too kind, Prince Arthur."

Alfred just sighed and started to walk beside Madeline as they all began heading to the castle and the dining hall. The castle itself was majestic with absolutely lovely architecture and the atmosphere in it was as lively as always. Even the gardens that surrounded the castle were as impressive as the castle itself and Alfred simply grabbed his younger sister's hand as he swung it lightly.

They both shared a small smile with each other and just seeing her smile was enough for him to take his mind off of the prince.

They soon entered the dining hall, the long dining table filled with food that smelled absolutely delightful. Columbia was known for its food from all over the world and with its trade with other kingdoms, they were able to get the best spices and much more. Seeing the table full made Alfred even hungrier and soon his mother approached Arthur, Alfred and Madeline.

"Madeline, how about you sit next to Prince Arthur? Also Alfred, it would be great of you to make friends with him, so if the prince doesn't mind, maybe you can sit with him as well?"

Alfred tried to suppress the frown and he just laughed a bit. "Of course, mother. Here, Arthur. We can sit over here," He mumbled as he sat down at his usual seat on the table.

Arthur was still dressed in armour and finding it difficult to move around in it (although his father seemed to be having no trouble whatsoever, merely enjoying his conversation with the other King). He nodded politely in response to the Queen and smiled a little weaker at the Prince as he was called by his first name alone, although he followed him without complaint; he was so relieved he hadn’t been wearing a helmet that day. He just had to deal with heavy armour and long robes instead.

He sat between the two of them, assuming that was wanted from him. He was anxious to impress, but Alfred was making him feel uncomfortable for some reason, made his armour feel tighter and his throat dry. He couldn’t possibly be anxious about his minor, could he?

He felt far too dressed up for the dinner, although he was looking forward to it. There was only so much of soup that one could take. He hadn’t eaten solid food since they’d left their kingdom. His stomach was rumbling from the sight however he would wait to be told that he could eat.

After a few moments in silence, he decided to say something to try and ease the awkward air between them.

“Tell me about yourselves? Your kingdom? I have never been here before.”

Alfred found it easy to walk around in his own armour and though it really wasn't ideal to eat at the table in it, he really didn't have all that much choice. He couldn't help but inspect Arthur's armour quietly and he just hummed before looking back at the food and soon to his father.

It really seemed as if the Kings were hitting it off very well. In fact, they seemed to be having a great time with each other. Though he knew that his father was always the kind of man to be very social, much like himself. Despite first appearances, Alfred really wasn't all that bitter to others. In fact, he was a very sociable boy but Prince Arthur was going to wed his sister.

And he couldn't just act all cheerful around him when his sister's happiness was at stake.

As they waited for permission to eat, Alfred simply side glanced at Arthur before humming.

"I'm sure you've read books about Columbia. You don't need me to tell you more about this place. You'll have the chance to learn more about it after you marry my sister," He muttered bitterly.

Madeline gasped at that and furrowed her eyebrows at Alfred.

"Alfred! I'm so sorry, Prince Arthur. My brother usually isn't like this. H-He's just been in a bad mood all day! Alfred! Apol--"

"Let dinner be served!" The king announced and everyone began to quickly dig into the food.

Arthur raised an eyebrow at that, initially shocked before frowning slightly. He opened his mouth to retort something but the announcement for food. He scoffed and turned his back on Alfred to smile somewhat at Madeline.

“Do not worry, my Princess,” he almost cringed at the reality of those words. “Perhaps he will find a better use for his mouth now?” he didn’t give Alfred the dignity of looking at him and merely began to eat his food.

Actual, solid food was heavenly. One of the few things he had heard about this kingdom, was that its cuisine was excellent. He would have to agree, although he wouldn’t give Alfred the satisfaction of saying so.

“M-may I call you by your first name?” Arthur flushed a little, looking at his bride-to-be. “I find formalities somewhat stifling at times, especially with someone that soon… I will be wed.”

Alfred nearly choked on his food when he heard Arthur's words and he simply scowled, soon looking over at the other. He could tell that the other was ignoring him and it simply made his blood boil. He couldn't let Madeline marry this snob! Not in the slightest bit!

God, he felt like he could cringe just hearing Arthur's words. It was terrible. All of it was terrible. Instead he continued on eating until he heard Arthur ask to be on a first name basis with Madeline.

Madeline simply flushed before smiling, nodding eagerly.

"I would really like that Pr--Arthur," She said, hiding her smile behind her hand as she laughed softly. Alfred just rolled his eyes and scoffed.

"Really? You find formalities to be stifling? You already seem as stifling as could be," He muttered.

“I’m glad,” Arthur found himself smiling genuinely at her gentle laugh, which allowed for humour to spread into his own tone. “You have a pretty name,” he complimented lightly with what could be described as an affectionate look before he turned to his food, continuing to eat.

Alfred’s words irritated him further, however. He didn’t look up from his plate.

“And you, Prince Alfred, are as disrespectful as could be,” he murmured in reply.

Madeline really wasn't all that pleased with Alfred's attitude and she looked a bit worried, looking back up at Arthur.

"I'm really sorry, Arthur. Alfred usually isn't like this. Nay, in fact...he's quite a kind boy," She whispered. "Please try to get along with him. He will only be provoked otherwise."

Alfred made sure not to react angrily and instead he tried to stay calm.

"I have every right to be. You're stealing my sister and ripping her away from her happiness and happy future."

"Alfred!" Madeline nearly squealed though she managed to keep her voice down.

Arthur offered her a meek smile; she was nice. Definitely a friend, if not anything else. Marriage to someone kind wouldn’t be too bad, he supposed. Even if she did have a demon brother from hell.

He exhaled and finally looked at Alfred again, clenching a fist beneath the table.

“That is not what I wish to do. I want to make her happy… or as happy as I can do. You forget, Alfred Jones that I was not the one who arranged this marriage. Nor am I stealing your sister. That’s utter nonsense,” he said with a sigh, beginning not to feel hungry anymore.

Madeline just sighed and Alfred frowned.

"Prince Alfred to you." That was all he said before he continued on eating his food. Soon the Queen of Columbia looked over at them and gazed disapprovingly at Alfred.

"I apologise, Prince Arthur. My son seems to be forgetting his teachings in his etiquette class. Please continue eating. I'll make sure he treats a kind and respectable prince such as yourself the way you deserve to be treated."

Alfred slunk back at that and he wished that his mother didn't overhear them.

"Alfred. Apologise to Prince Arthur."

He scowled though soon turned his gaze towards the other prince.

"I'm sorry," He mumbled and his mother simply quirked her eyebrow.

"Louder, Alfred. And sit up straight." In return, Alfred sat up straight and tried to not let the embarrassment get the best of him.

"I'm sorry, Prince Arthur."

Arthur rolled his eyes at Alfred’s childishness. After all, that was what he was. He was two years younger than Arthur, and bound to be a lot less mature. He had to admit that he found it somewhat amusing to watch Alfred be scolded in a near-patronising manner. He had to fight the vindictive smirk that attempted to cross his lips.

“He still has much to learn, I understand,” Arthur nodded as he smiled warmly at the Queen. “You’re forgiven,” he said to Alfred, after a few long moments of silence. “For now.”

He was certain that Alfred would be equally as rude at some other point. He would be mature and the better man for not fighting back, however. He had to impress Madeline.

“I think that I might retire for the evening, if I may?” he looked back to the Queen for approval. “I’m tired from riding all day.”

Alfred felt absolutely humiliated but at least his father didn't really seem to notice. He was still chatting happily away with Arthur's own father and he couldn't help but sigh. He was just getting hungrier though at the same time, he really didn't want to linger around the dining room anymore.

Alfred's mother simply smiled and nodded.

"Of course, Prince Arthur. I'll have one of the servants prepare you some night clothes and if you want, even a bath after such a long period of travelling. Catch up on your sleep. Tomorrow I'll have Alfred show you around the castle grounds. Like a respectable man and hopefully he will wise up."

Alfred simply shrugged and slouched over a bit.

"Yes, mother."

Madeline just laughed a bit, smiling over at Alfred before looking back at Arthur. "May I come with you tomorrow through the castle grounds, Arthur?"

Arthur rose from his seat, the metal of his armour clanking slightly as he bowed a little to the queen.

“Thank you, your highness. I look forward to it.” He really wasn’t. Why Alfred? Why not Madeline? He glanced once at Alfred before returning his gaze to his fiancée, at whom he smiled.

“I would enjoy your company, Madeline. Of course you can accompany us.” He took a small step back, “Good night,” and with that he turned to leave the room, his long cloak billowing in the movement.

It was such a relief to bathe and change out of his armour, even if he had to sit naked in a room of servants (which was not what he was used to but he didn’t quite have the heart to tell them to bugger off). Let them look, he supposed?

The bed he was given was large, the sheets were fresh and it was incredibly soft. He would be spending the next three months here. For now, it was his home, although home seemed so far, far away.

After dinner, Alfred was promptly scolded by his mother and he was told that he would be stuck in classes for the whole entire next month with no chance to go outside if he kept up his nasty attitude towards Arthur.

So with that clearly in mind, Alfred knew that he needed to be a bit more respectable towards Arthur, though personally he didn't think he deserved such a treatment. He seemed like an nice enough man to Madeline but that was just first impressions! He was pretty sure it wouldn't last at all.

So after the scolding, he tucked his sister in for the night before getting ready for bed himself.

He really wasn't looking forward to tomorrow. Maybe he could show Arthur the town also if only so he had an excuse to go out of the castle. He hated being locked up in here though he knew that Madeline wouldn't be able to go with him.

The next day after breakfast, both the princess and prince were waiting for Arthur at the dining hall entrance. Alfred was quite grateful that Madeline was coming though at the same time, he didn't want to watch Arthur try wooing her.

Arthur slept very well, in comparison to the past couple of night’s sleep he’d had whilst on the journey to Columbia. He dressed himself in some more versatile clothes than he had been wearing the day before. He reluctantly left his sword behind. He knew that he should at least attempt to be less threatening to Alfred. They would have to get along for this alliance to work. When their parents were gone, if he and Alfred didn’t get along, then surely the two kingdoms would feud?

He met them where he had left them the previous night, in the dining room.

“Good morning,” he greeted as warmly as he could.

Alfred was dressed in more comfortable clothes though Madeline was still restrained with her dress, though it was only courtesy at this day and age. Conservatism was widely appreciated, especially in their kingdom. The prince had been happily chatting away with with his sister until Arthur came around and when he took notice of him, he simply sighed a bit before nodding his head.

"Morning," He murmured and Madeline simply smile.

"Good morning, Arthur. How was your sleep?" She asked before urging the both of them to follow her.

The tour of the castle took quite a bit of time and it was like many castles so Alfred knew that it was best to cut some of the rooms out of the tour. It would just be too long if he showed him every single room. It was tiring, explaining all of the places but Arthur was going to live here for three months (unfortunately) and he needed to know his way around.

Fortunately enough he kept his mouth quiet in regards to Arthur until finally they explored most of the castle.

"If you want, I can take you into the city itself though Madeline can't come with us."

“I slept well, thank you,” Arthur responded before following her to allow the tour to begin.

He was actually a lot more impressed with the castle than he thought that he would have been. He found the architecture to be quite stunning, the paintings on the wall increasingly more fantastic and beautiful. He didn’t say as much, though. He would leave conversation and compliments such as that for Madeline’s ears only; he’d consistently attempted to throw her as many charming smiles as he could.

He was relieved that Alfred didn’t appear to want to argue today. Perhaps his mother had, had a word with him?

“I… I must admit that I would like that. But isn’t it dangerous to go out unarmed?” he felt naïve for asking. “I’m sorry that you can’t go with us, Madeline,” he said to her earnestly, looking somewhat sympathetic.

It was actually rather surprising that the prince was able to keep his mouth to himself though it was obvious that he was angry considering his clenched fists and his narrowed eyes. He hated hearing Arthur try flattering Madeline. It was disgusting! To think that Arthur would have done that with any woman that he was to marry. It was just formality, not genuine interest.

That was at least what Alfred thought to himself.

He had a feeling that Arthur would never truly love his sister though. Maybe see her as a friend but not truly love her as she deserved to be loved.

Yet Madeline seemed to be enjoying the attention no matter how much it flustered her. All she could really do was laugh behind her hand and flush and return some of the compliments back. When Alfred offered to take Arthur out to the city, Madeline simply smiled at them and shook her head.

"I don't mind, Arthur! You both have fun, yes? Alfred is a good enough swordsman and I'm certain you're very good with your sword as well."

She paused for a moment before stepping forward and going on her tip toes so she could peck Arthur's cheek.

"Stay safe, my prince." And with that, she hurried off to her room. Alfred looked disgusted though he just swallowed.

"You can go grab your sword. I'll tell the stable boy to get our horses ready. Don't worry, the city is really nice. I'm sure you'll like it." And with that, Alfred headed out of the castle once more to grab the horses.

Arthur knew that his relationship with Madeline would be forced, but he was trying his best to enjoy her company and find her attractive. He was trying. Really.

He turned a dark shade of crimson when she kissed him on the cheek. He lightly touched the place her lips had been with his fingertips, skin tingling. It was quite thrilling to receive even a chaste kiss from her. He found himself smiling timidly before he remembered himself and the fact that he was in Alfred’s company. He straightened himself out and got rid of the gawking expression upon his face.

“I’ll be right back, then,” he guaranteed before heading to go and collect his sword.

He soon returned to Alfred, managing to locate the stables on his own. It was a bit of relief to see Nihran again. He approached the horses and stroked his horse’s neck. Alfred’s horse seemed equally as nice, however. Arthur’s horse was a deep brown colour with a strong figure whereas Alfred’s was tall and proud-looking.

“Your steed is beautiful,” he said before he could help himself.

Alfred's own mare was had a pure white colour to her and a very well groomed mane. It seemed as if the stable boy had treated both of their horses very well and despite his anger towards Arthur, the prince couldn't help but soften a bit when he heard his words.

He soon reached up to stroke her mane and he couldn't help but smile, more genuine than any smile he had given to the other prince.

"Thanks, I suppose. Her name is Eowyn. She's the most faithful horse I've ever known."

With that, he soon led her out of the stables before climbing on her, soon waiting for Arthur so they could head out of the castle and into the city.

Arthur’s heart skipped a beat at the softening of Alfred’s expression. The way which he looked at his horse could only be described as… extraordinarily handsome on the young man’s face. He gulped and pushed the thought from his mind as he also led his horse out of the stables.

He swiftly mounted and trotted after Alfred.

“Lead the way,” he murmured.

Alfred just nodded and lightly stroked his mare's mane even as he rode her as they trotted ahead. Soon enough he turned to look over at Arthur before nodding.

"Of course," He murmured with a soft sigh and he just couldn't wait until he got into the city. Anything to take his mind off of his current riding companion.

"I hope your parents won't mind me taking you around the city but I want to at least give ya' a chance to see how great Columbia is."

The trip to the city didn't take all that long and soon everything began to change scenery. Their path became more crowded with people as they shopped as the large markets spanning out for them to see. There were many things sold and in fact, many of the things sold looked to be from different traders from across the world. From different spices to perfumes to even some weird new innovations.

Everything was lively, people chattering away and their were guards stationed all over the streets, giving the peasants more confidence to walk the streets without worrying about getting harmed.
