Battle for the Princess

Romance

Prologue


Millions of years from now, Earth’s tectonic plates shifted, pulling the world back together. Pangea has been recreated. Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcano eruptions, stopped.

Humans, realizing that it was the only way to stop polluting the Earth, gave up technology. They keep few inventions: filters, sewage and plumbing, and basic handheld tools. Everything was handmade and thus simple.

Instead of flipping a switch to turn on a light bulb, a candle would be lit. Food was all farmed or hunted, not manufactured. Horses, carriages pulled by animals, or walking were the only modes of transportation.

Overtime, the culture began to change. Women went back to wearing only dresses and skirts. Men wore button-down with a pair of pants or shorts. They slaved hard and long to build houses and, eventually, castles.

Then the fighting began to escalate. People split into countries. Mountain ranges, made by the clashing of the plates, served as the boundaries for rising regions. In all, there were twenty provinces.

Monarchies started, so did alliances. Arrange marriage became a normal thing. However, one monarch stood out about the rest. The other monarchies were becoming scared and they brought about an agreement since nobody wanted to see any more land destroyed.

The agreement detailed how the other monarchies would become aristocrats: barons, dukes, earls and etc. The monarchy would rule. However, they would have to produce a daughter to be the heir. For her to become queen, she has to marry on of the aristocrats. They left the details to how she would choose the king to the daughter and the King and Queen. By her nineteenth birthday, she must choose someone to be the king.

The Queen seemed alright with this proposal. The King wasn’t liking it. He doesn’t want a man to be ordering her daughter around when she is the Queen. Negotiations were made. Not only did the princess chose the next king, he would not be able to make any proclamations without her agreeing to it. She was the one to hold the seal of the family. Without her approval, nothing would happen.

The other monarchies didn’t like this. This would make it difficult for them to influence the country. But by looking into the King’s eyes, they knew there was no way he was going to change his mind.

With that, they were to an agreement. Due to the country having one land mass, they kept the name to Pangea.

Now begins the story, of the very first princess of Pangea, Alexandra.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace.
