Introduction

It had been two days since we got that letter and my Didi had already made up her mind that all of our problems were gone forever. I never thought that I can ever refuse her for any thing she wanted from me but this thing was different and I wouldn't even go for it in a million years. I was stubborn but she was no less. She had already decided that she would send me off to The Royal Palace in Angeles no matter what.

My family was already sitting on the dinning table when I entered the room.

'Will it kill you, Piyali?; My Didi asked glaring at me.

'Please just say yes, please.'

'Didi, I filled in the form only for you and never thought I would get selected out of all the ladies in our Coastalina, but now that I am one of the 28 ladies I can't afford to take this risk at all!'

My Jiju cleared his throat 'Piyali, don't worry about it at all. It's your decision and we-

'Are you out of your mind, Viren?' my Didi shouted.

'Relax, Suman. This is not your or mine decision, this is Piyali's.'

'What do you think I don't care about Piyali's future, you think I am doing something wrong ?'

This has been going on and on for the past 2 days ,and I was getting sick of this. But deep down I felt guilty as well, the most compassionate couple were fighting with each other just

for my sake, for my future and here I couldn't make up my mind.

'Didi please knock it off!'I finally shouted when I couldn't take it anymore.

I got up immediately and ran to my room, ignoring the words my Didi and jiju were saying to stop me.

I sat on bed and took that letter out again to read it one more time, hoping the words would have changed

To Piyali Malhotra,

Thank you for filling in the form,

The recent census just confirmed that you are selected and are one of the 28 ladies who have an upcoming opportunity to honor the great nation of Indianna.

Our beloved Crown Prince Vikram Singh Rathore is coming of age this month and he hopes to move forward and with a partner, to marry a true daughter of Indianna.

One woman was selected randomly from each province, and gladly you are the one chosen from the province Coastalina. All the participants will be held at the lovely Royal palace in Angeles and a few will be eliminated by our prince as the time passes the last one left would be the one to marry our prince. It will completely be his choice. We will love to have yo-

I couldn't take it anymore and crushed the paper without reading the last line and threw it harshly in the bin.

Why would I go to their house? Why would I marry a person I never met or even saw?

Yes, I have seen his Mom and Dad the great King and Queen on television a few times

and I didn't like any of them, they didn't care about our nation or the poor people who were starving.

I sighed loudly I knew there was no way my Didi would care to even listen to me, she is surely going to win sooner or later. I have to prepare myself for this. I just can't go away from my family, my friends and most importantly my home.

After a few hours of sitting on the bed staring at the wall I finally decided that I will go to that freaking Royal palace and will be first one to get eliminated, I will do all the crazy things to make the Prince dislike me. After that I hope my Didi gets satisfied with my rejection.

There was no way he is going to choose me,I was sure the other 27 women must be much prettier and richer than me.

I had average looks. Dark brown hair, jet black eyes, pink rosy lips and my figure was curvy but definitely not something attractive. I was now looking at myself

in the mirror. I saw myself one last time in the mirror and then left to pack my bags.

I chuckled there is no way he will like me. But I still had this question roaming somewhere in my brain

'What if he falls for me?'
