"I don't...remember any accidents." I said and massage my temple. "You don't have to force yourself to remember what happened. Just rest for now, you are probably shocked, since you just woke up.” Tumango naman ako sa sinabi ng doctor at kinausap niya saglit si Aziz.
Yumukod muna ang manggagamot at nag-iwan ng kaniyang prescription bago umalis. I sighed and looked at Glenna and Glenda. Mukha silang paiyak na, isang salita ko lang baka siguro humagulgol na itong mga ito.
Tinanong ko naman kung ano ang problema nila at ganoon ang kanilang itsura. "Uhm... we thought we would never see you again, because you've been sleeping all the time and the doctor said, there's a high chance that you will not be able to wake up." Glenna explains.
I sighed and shook my head a little. "I just wished I did not," I murmured. Glenna looked so confused but I just shook my head at her.
Ngayong kumalma na ang lahat, naramdaman ko na bahagyang tumitibok ang ulo ko na sobrang sakit kapag nagkikilos-kilos ako. Sa kabilang banda naman, si Glenda ay nilapitan ako at nag-aalalang tinanong ako.
"I'm okay, my head just hurts so much, but I'll live," I said. Glenda held my hand and kneels in front of me. There are also tears in her eyes. Buti na lang din, pinaalis na ni Aziz ang ibang maids dahil mas lalong sumasakit ang ulo ko kapag maraming tao. Pakiramdam ko nasu-suffocate ako.
I can't understand what's going on, as far as I can remember, I already died. So why am I still alive? I can still feel the cold sharp knife on my neck that ended my life.
"Young lady?" Glenda asked. I was back to my reverie when Glenda burst into tears. "You're still not okay!" humagulgol ito ng iyak na parang isang bata. I sighed before gently caressing her hair, tumigil naman siya sa pag-iingay, pero tumutulo pa rin ang mga luha nito galing sa kaniyang mga mata.
"Glenda, stop crying already. I'm okay, so stop worrying yourself more." I said she then hugs my waist before standing up while wiping her tears.
"I'm sorry lady Lacy, I’m just happy that you are awake now," untag niya sa akin. Nginitian ko siya para hindi na siya mag-alala pa. Pumunta naman si Aziz sa harapan ko at bahagyang yumukod.
I guess, ang pagiging magalang niya ay hindi pa rin nawawala, kahit na sinabihan ko na siya na hindi na kailangan kapag kami-kami na lang ang magkakasama.
I smiled at Aziz when I saw her secretly scolding the twin. Lumapit ito sa akin and I saw her secretly wiping her tears, which made me laugh a little bit.
"Ehem..." I smiled at her as I held her hands. "L-Lady Lacy...!" she exclaimed in trembling voice before bursting into tears, the twin also bursts into tears. Lumuhod sila sa harapan ko habang umiiyak na para bang mga sanggol na hindi pinakain.
These three became my friends or rather my family, since I mentioned earlier that my father didn't pay any attention to me since I was a child. Aziz became my mother figure and the twins are like my sister.
"Lady Lacy, we'll let you rest for a while. You can call one of us, if you have any concerns." Aziz said. Tumango naman ako sa kanila ng yumuko sila sa harap ko, bago sila lumabas ng kwarto.
They took care of me before I was separated from them, because of the marriage with the king's 9th son, Izaak Carlos Brook. I fell into despair when the three of them died because of me. They sacrificed their lives for me to live, because they were accused of betraying the royal family. Kahit wala naman silang ginawa talaga, nang dahil lang sa nakaharang ako sa daan ni Izabel, kaya niya ginawa iyon.
Izabel did that. That's why I can’t accept that everything that I've done so far for Izaak, I still lost and died pathetically. When I and Izaak got married, right after 2 months of our wedding day, Izaak assassinated the king and the Crown Prince and made his other older brothers and sisters give up the rights to sit on the throne. Although, there's a rumor saying that the Crown Prince is alive.
That Pickett Smith Faeroe is alive.
Originally I was engaged to be with the Crown Prince but the king gave me a pardon that I can choose within his sons to be wed with. Dahil ang pamilya namin ay tapat at malugod na naglilingkod sa Royal Family. Kaya naman pinagbigyan ako ng King Levi na mamili kung sino ang gusto kong pakasalan, dahil alam naman niyang isa sa mga anak niya ang karelasyon ko noon.
That time I was dating Izaak, that's why I didn't hesitate to choose Izaak to be my husband. I guess I was so stupid to let Izaak used me for his ulterior motives. Then, years later, Izaak and I got married, pero limang buwan pa lamang na kasal kami nagkaroon na kaagad siya ng ibang babae, he met Izabel Brandenburg, who's a daughter of Duke Brandon Brandenburg, who is also greedy for the throne. Pagkatapos na pakasalan ni Izaak si Izabel, tinawag na akong ‘Fallen Queen of Faeroe kingdom’.
Siguro dahil napabayaan ako at dahil si Izabel ay isang santa-santita na akala mo mabait, siya ang nagustuhan ng ibang tao. Pero wala naman siyang alam sa mga political affairs, ang alam lang niyang gawin ay tea parties, shopping and other girly stuffs. Kaya mas lalong nadagdagan ang mga gawain ko.
They gave me that kind of nickname, because of the 'fallen princess' before. It's kind of 'history repeats itself', like that. I guess I'm unlucky with my past life, from family to my lover and my people. But now that I am given a chance to have a new life, bago pa man mangyari ang mapait na aking naranasan, babaguhin ko na agad ang aking tadhana at pipiliin ko na ang dapat at tama.
I swear to the Kind God, I'm going to make my life right now be worthwhile and change the direction of fate that has given me before.
They'll never hurt me again, never again.
It's been a week since I went back to my 15 year old self, and so far, it's good. There's nothing to be wary of. Well, except for the bodyguards that my father assigned to guard me, 24/7. Isama mo pa sina Glenna, Aziz and Glenda. They are really persistent on guarding me, kulang na lang pati sa pagtulog ko bantayan nila ako. Gosh! That's really creepy. If you're wondering how I distinguished the Cecilia Twin, Glenda doesn't have any bangs, her hair is wavy orange hair, and her complexion is warm beige and her round face. While Glenna has bangs, straight orange hair, heart shaped face, and her complexion is same with Glenda, warm beige and their eyes are bright orange. Other people are having a hard time recognizing them, but I already know them very well, the difference and all. While Aziz has blue hair and eyes. Glenna and Glenda are cheerful, but Glenda is more of a mature type than Glenna, while Aziz is a more serious type, the polite girl of House of Schu
It's been two days since my father went away, I did see him before he departed and he said he'll send a letter from time to time to check on me. Pero para bang labag sa loob niyang iwanan ako kasama ang mga maids at iba pang servants rito. Mukhang ayaw niya akong iwan at gusto niya muna akong aalagaan, pero may trabaho pa siya kaya sinibihan ko na lang siya na magiging ayos lamang ako rito. Hindi rin siya pwedeng magtagal pa lalo dahil sa pagkakaalam ko, naatras ang lakad na iyon dahil sa aksidenteng nangyari sa akin. Now that I regained my consciousness, he needs to do his job now, hindi na puwede pang ipagpaliban. "Lady Lacy," tawag sa akin ni Aziz, kaagad ko naman siyang nilingon. "Hmm?" I hummed. "The House of Martinez sent an invitation," I creased my forehead and looked at Aziz. Did they actually send an invitation to me? "I know you are wondering but I guess it has to do with your recent accident," Aziz explained. "What do you mean?" I asked. "
"Lady," the horseman called. "We have already arrived, my lady," he said before opening the door. Inilahad naman niya ang kaniyang kamay upang may mahawakan ako sa aking pagbaba, na siyang malugod kong tinanggap. For the second time around, I felt shivers. Para bang may nagmamatyag sa akin na hindi ko malaman. Isinawalang bahala ko na lamang iyon at nag-focus sa kung ano ang gagawin ko ngayong araw. That's right! I should focus on what's in front of me and this person is... "I said get out!" the middle-aged man exclaimed as he threw us away like candy. Napaawang naman ako sa ginawa niya. Like- what the hell?! Usap-usapan noon na masungit siya, oo, pero mabait naman daw siya dati noong hindi pa ito nakikilala. Did I assume it was wrong? What the hell? "Lady! Are you all right?" Glenda asked worriedly. I nod my head and compose my posture. I sighed before looking at him. Jakob Isis is a low-class noble, he has a daughter
Hinawakan ko naman ang mga ito at masasabi ko talaga na worth it ang pagbili ng dresses sa kaniya. Kahit na hindi ako nakabili noon. "Sometimes I still sew dresses. I guess old habits die hard." "How much?" I asked. Jakob looked at me before turning his attention to the wardrobe. Para bang pumipili ito ng damit, at ilang sandali nga lang, may inilabas itong skin-tone dress that had little yellow and white flowers on it. Ang tela nito ay medyo magaspang at see through ang dalawa nitong balikat. Ang lente nito at lagpas paa. May tali rin ito na nakabuhol sa gitna ng dibdib. Kita ng bahagya ang aking dibdib kung susuotin ko ito, pero kahit na ganoon ang itsura, maganda pa rin ito tignan. "This dress will surely suit you better," he said and handed me the dress that he's talking about. "You're not going to accept payment for such a beautiful dress?" I asked. "It's my compensation for what I have done to your hand." Well... I guess it's not
Pickett was stunned for a minute and they are just looking at each other when a knock on the door interrupts them, that is when Lacy tried to free herself but Pickett forces her to lay on the bed and held her hand tightly, also he put his other free hand on her mouth. “Lady Lacy? Are you okay?” a girl asked. Lacy tried to kick his groin but Pickett managed to stop her and lock her inside of his body. So, Pickett is on top of Lacy, like his whole body is trapping Lacy and preventing her from her future actions. “Hmmph!” Pickett lowers his body to stop Lacy from moving around. He lowers his head and whispered to her ears. “I’ll let you go if only you will not scream and you have to shove away your maid," Picke
A week passed like a blur. Tomorrow morning will be the tea party and to tell you, I am not even excited. I don't know, maybe it's not just my type and tea parties didn't interest me after all. And oh, I already sent a letter or a reply to my father. Now I regret that I send a reply that I am going to the tea party, I mean, where here I am, sulking and I can't take back my words, so I just need to show myself. Right? Hindi naman siguro required na magtagal, kumbaga magpapakita lang ako then alis na agad. I frowned when I thought of that idea of how rude of me. Of course, I'm a noble and lady of Marquez it is not right to leave the party first.But I think it'll just bore me to death if I stay there any longer. *** And to what just I am expecting, this tea party bores me to death already. "Oh my... Lady Lacy!" Jona greeted me and bowed down as well as the other noble behind her. "It's great that you came here to our h
We went in then we saw Princess Yasmine surrounded by the guests. She's just giving them a slight smile and nods her head from time to time. I compose myself and ready my mind to perfect my plan. I am smiling while walking towards her. She immediately saw me. Once I am in front of her, I bowed down. "Greetings to the Princess of Faeroe Kingdom. May King of Gods blesses you for eternity," I said as I bowed down. She motions her hands as if signaling me to stand up straight. "Greetings to you too, lady Marquez," she said and smiled at me. "I heard that you had an accident. It's good to see you well now," she calmly said. I bowed down my head once again and looked at her. "Yes, princess. Thank you for your concerns for this noble lady," I humbly said. At the back of my mind, I am cursing her. Yes, because she's one of those people who manipulated and caused catastrophe to the kingdom. Nakipagsa
I was sick for a day. Now I am fully recovered, thanks to Ms. Anna's medications and prescriptions. Siguro takot lang sila na magkasakit na naman ako, kaya grabe kung maka-asikaso silang lahat. Also, hindi ko na rin sinabi sa aking ama kung anong nangyari at sinabi ko rin sa mga servants na sana hindi na 'yon makarating pa sa kaniya. And now, here, I am looking at the window of the manor. I am watching those knights who are sparring with themselves. "My lady, I am just going out for a moment. Glenna and Glenda will accompany you for a moment," Aziz said. I look at her. She's wearing a commoner's clothes underneath the cloak. "Where are you going?" I asked. "I am going to the market. Since the one who was assigned to do this. Took an emergency day off," I creased my forehead and asked her what happened. "Her son suddenly fell ill and is bedridden now." Sin
