The Meeting

Do you know that feeling where something bad is about to happen? well I woke up like that, something in my head went off and my stomach churned with displeasure. That was until my sister ran into my room, eyes on fire and her spewing some mean words at me while I was still half asleep.

“WHY ARE YOU YELLING”

“WE GOT INVITED TO THE KING'S MASQUERADE BALL”

“FUCK TO THE NO, I am not going to that over the top, female frenzy ball, you do know i have self worth right?” I replied smugle knowing that was a good reason not to go cause all those girls that are invited are usually ridiculed and poked fun at.

“Yes we are”

“No’

“yes”

“no”

“yes”

“n-” I was cut off by my pain in the ass father barging in

“You are going and that's final, the King is an associate of mine and close friend, it's about time you met them, they're coming over in an hour get dressed up nice” and then he grabbed Eavan and strolled out leaving me dumbfounded.

Oh by the way my name is Aislinn and it looks like i'll be meeting people I don't want to. I took a quick shower and got dressed into a navy dress with ¾ lacey sleeves and a thin black belt with black flats. I blew out my hair and did minimal makeup (winged eyeliner, foundation and concealer, little blush and chapstick). I walked downstairs to see Eavan dressed in a simple white dress, the bust part was tightish as it went lower it was flowy and she had on white heels and a little bow clipping her hair back. I made my way down the last step and jumped. I grabbed my locket my grandmother gave me before she died and had Eavan clip it. Now we just sat and wait, we played some multiplayer racing game on our phones, which I had to purposely lose since she was so nervous at least this would help her nerves. We played for about half an hour before the doorbell rang which startled me and made me crash my virtual car in a telephone pole.

My father let them in, I was still scowling since my car crash and my sister was snickering since it was crushed, literally and figuratively crushed. Eavan then looked up and nearly toppled over as she saw the royals (Which may I say Ick, they made us curtsy -.-) Father had excused the King and the eldest son into the office to “discuss important matters”... I thought they were lying cause you could hear them laughing so they were probably gossiping which caused me to roll my green and blue eyes at the door.

“Any problem Miss?”

“Huh? oh no, no problem, they're just gossiping” i spewed out with no thinking.

Eavan slapped her hand over her mouth shell shocked that i said that.

“No i didn't mean it like.. you know what, nevermind, i'm going to shut up because i'm just going to get myself in more trouble” I grumbled

The royals wore a smug smile and chuckled to themselves which made it awkward.

“ Shouldn't you ladies be joining our mothers for tea?” one of the boys asked

Eavan replied this time “ Nope, we're here to keep you company”

“That one doesn't seem like she's enjoying it” one of them sneered

“I'm not so you- kghkjagkg” Eavan slammed her hand over my mouth so I licked it and she screeched.

“That was uncalled for Ashe”
“I had every right, you put you hand over my mouth” I stuck my tongue out at her

We snickered while the kids in our presence looked at us weird.

“You know what please enjoy yourselves, the kitchen it to your left and the living room to your right, we are going to join our mothers, please feel welcomed to come if you want” I uttered as Eavan and I basically rushed out the door giggling.

This would be an eventful time.

We saw our mother, A beautiful lightly tanned, dark haired blue eyed women with a flowered print house wife dress on with small heels on her feet with a pregnant belly. We basically rushed over there to find comfort in the time of panic where there was so many people we didn't know.

“Mom” The both of us basically tripping over ourselves to have the scent of our mom to soothe our panic.

“Eavan, Aislinn. Are you okay dears? Here meet the queen and her friends ” Mom's voice was like a sweet melody that calmed everyone down, but as she mentioned new people we were dead silent and just waved and looked at them.

“They don't seem to talk much to strangers Patty, you know you might have to keep them away from my boys, they like the quiet ones.” the queen's friend giggled

“We were just wondering if Eavan and I could sit and have tea with you all, the boys were bothering us.” I Muttered

“Oh yes, We would love for you girls to come have tea with us, your mother was just telling us how you and your sister help the sickly, animal or person” the queen said

“I can understand why their names mean dream and radiant beauty” The queen chuckled while Eavan and I blushed, maybe this wasn't a good idea.

“Dears the men will join us soon, you might want to go to the park it might be quiet there yes?”

“Okay mom, we’ll see you for lunch” we kissed her cheek

“It was nice meeting you your highness and you as well royals” We grinned at them as we walked to the little park near the tea area. We just swung until our parents had a maid come and fetch us to meet the rest of the crowd.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Sabrina Ettey: The story plot is great. I loved it. Just the grammar punctuation and writing style was kind of distracting. But with the smooth polishing, it may shine like a pearl. :)

zoheusher20: What more can I say? The writing style and little details drew me into the book and for the entirety of the story I was Juliet. I felt her turmoil and emotions and every trouble or triumph as they arrived. This story was very different and had quite a few little but unexpected twists that made it...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...
