In occasion, a lady is permitted to speak but only to those with the same title. As such, the soft tone of voice in which they are permitted to use is a decibel lower than what can be heard by others. This will be coined as the 'Consort's Voice.'✾They say women were born competitive.Some might suggest that men are more prone to competing than women but deep down, we all know the truth. Men have their guns and arms to solve a fight, they have violent means to figure out the winner. Women have a different way to settle things. Done are the days where we only battle physical attributes, of who is prettier, of who

One that I was wearing now, and the other one that I wear

A lady must always avoid unnecessary conversation such as gossiping. Faults you see in another need not to be discussed.✾Silas plopped himself into a chair.He placed his elbow on the table and rested his cheek on his palm. He looked at each and every one of us, still not lingering, just a passing stare. Waiting for us to do something. He knows we can't speak unless asked. I could feel the rest of the consort's eyes on me, my fin

Perfecting this skill will surely make you recognizable in society.✾After that eventful lunch, nothing of importance happened next.Before I knew it, a week has already passed.

They must also take state issued supplements for their well-being.✾"This is great tea, Amara! I couldn't even tell it was poisoned."Smirking, I stuck my chin out. This was just my third try and he already couldn't taste the bitterness of Wolfsbane. Compared to the others who’s more or less on their eight try, I was already able to make an unsubtle poison, subtle. It took me a few days to perfect it, but it w

A lady must always wait to be introduced first. They must present themselves to those superior to them with grace and a curtsy. A lady must never engage in a shaking of hands.✾Alpha Irvine is taller than how I expected him to be.I believe he stands at most 7ft tall. His muscles were burly and taut making his suit almost look like second skin. I was staring, that I know, but I couldn't help myself. A large scar runs from his forehead down to his left cheek. And the place where his left eyes is supposed to be lies a pale silver glass eye. He did look like someone who would kill a maid for just breaking plates. Just looking at him, you coul

A lady must be at the location an hour earlier and they are required to wear ball gowns of their Nation’s national colors.✾The paper in my hand weighed like a ton of rocks.Judging from the mix of intake and release of breaths inside the room, I can tell the locations varied greatly. I still haven’t looked up, I can’t tell much about how the others reacted. I’m still stuck staring at this piece of paper that would very well have an effect on my life. Or the remainder of it, I don’t think I would survive that long. No. Especially not here.                Days after Silas mentioned t
