Beware Greg


The ball room was crowded with many women from around the world. Each wearing elegant dresses and shiny jewels. They were all there to meet the future King of Brighthead, so one of them could possibly become his bride.

It had been several minutes since the ball started and yet, the Prince had not yet shown himself. The women who had came all the way were eager to meet him. Then finally, after what felt like an eternity, Prince Reska Novelia appeared at the top of the Master Staircase.

Everyone squealed as his light orange hair glistened in the light of the golden chandelier that hung above his head. He waved to everyone as he traveled down the steps and disappeared into the crowd.

All of the women surrounded Reska, trying to get his attention. This made him extremely uncomfortable, however he hid his discomfort under a warm smile. As much as he wanted to just return to his room, he couldn’t. He could only stand there as women fought over him. Despite the fact that he was uninterested in woman. But he felt he couldn’t tell anyone that. No one must know.

 Ethan Winters, had always been homeless so to speak. A beggar. A pauper. When he was just an infant, he had been found in the snow by his frozen mother. She had been a prostitute. She had passed giving birth to him in an alleyway. An elderly couple had taken pity on the boy and raised him from that moment on. 

Sure, they were just below the poverty line, but he lived a good life. He still begged then to bring in extra coin and food to the family. But sadly, when he was 18 an illness has spread through Brighthead. A deadly one that he had survived... but his adopted parents hadn't. He lost his home after that in a fire. Just one tragedy after another for the poor thing. 

He was reduced to living in the same alleyway that he had been born in. Not even knowing it. He would stay at the mouth of the alleyway during daylight hours. He once more would beg for food or any coin that he could get. He also watched people. He was a quiet ad shy soul, wary of people. So many were cruel these days. 

He had never been interested in women after all. He felt... different. He couldn't explain or place a finger on the word for it. But he knew that women were not something he was interested in. But the young men who traveled the streets with their stately canes and their tall hats. Those were the ones that he adored. The were so strong, so self assured looking. Something he was not. 

But out of all of them, the rare sightings of the prince is what had his heart. Prince Reska... he couldn't help but adore him! He was kind, beautiful and charming from what  he had learned from rare sightings of the prince. One day, had been picked up by an odd man promising him everything.

 He said that Ethan was the loveliest woman he had ever seen. Was the man blind? Yes, he was. He promised that he could make Ethan's dreams come true. He ended up swooping Ethan away in a carriage, taking him to a regal like Palace. He was cleaned up and made into a maiden! 

Ethan didn't know what to think of this. Now is he stared down in a ball dress at this gala. "I shouldn't be here!" He panicked to himself. "But I have no choice! If I get found out as a man, I'm in trouble! Cross-dressing was illegal! Even worse was being what he now found out to be, the word gay! He was even more dangerous situation.

 He looked up seeing the prince, his heart hammered. He was in love. It wasn't  fair...he could never be with the prince! He squeezed his fingers in front of his ball gown as he bit his lip. "What am I supposed to do!?" He whispered to himself.

 "Go over there with those other noisy, rude, and clamoring girls? No! What if they knock off my fake chest or something!? I've already had to make several devices to make me look female in this dress!" He gulped as he stayed there just watching the prince. Yearning to go over to him. 

But he was too afraid. "What if he knows as soon as I  speak!? He'll be disgusted by me! He'll know that I'm breaking the law and I'll be executed! Or even worse than execution! I would be to be homeless again, to be a beggar! I can't do that! I can't starve anymore!" He lowered his head again as the thoughts raced through  him. 

Ethan was already thin and pale. He had a a very frail disposition to his form. This was due to lack of nutrients and very little food. If he went back with his fleeting figure at the beginning of winter in Brighthead, he'd freeze to death just like his mother.

Reska glanced around the ballroom, trying desperately to find a way to cancel this event. However, he was unable to think of something. When he glanced over the room once more, he noticed someone.

Reska noticed a woman in a red gown. As he stared at her, he could hear his heart beat loud inside his chest. This was unusual for him, since he knew for a fact that he had no interest in women.

Curiously, he decided to approach, giving her a warm smile. [#f4c462 [i "Good evening, ma’am,"]] he greeted, bowing before her. [#f4c462 [i "May ask your name?"]]

Ethan could feel his heart coming up his throat. Then bouncing back down into his chest again. The prince had it actually come up to him! He remembered his training that he had been given. He courtesied, using the softest and meekest voice he could. "Oh, I hope this works!" He thought to himself. 

"I hope I sound enough like a maiden!" He curtsied back to the prince, dipping low and coming back up slowly. He was keeping his eyes down as was the proper custom for respect. "Hello, my prince. May you live long and your health be good. May your future reign be bountiful. It is nice to meet you. My name is Ethania Winters." He quickly scrambled to remember the man's last name who had taken him in off the streets. 

Yes, he had taken on the man's last name. But then again the man was in the crowd listening in making sure that his "adopted daughter" was doing everything that she was supposed to do following. The training that he had carefully guided her through with her tutors. Ethan internally cringed at the name he'd  cane up with. Ethania!? Did he really just do a quick female version of his name!?

Why was he so pathetic!? "It's because I don't like being around people and I'm nervous." He muttered under his breath. He was hoping to Gods, the prince didn't hear him. "The reason I'm nervous is because I have an extreme adoration for this guy." He thought  this time. 

He finally looked up with a warm smile on his face. This one he meant. He tried not to let his cheeks flush. "Help!" He mentally squeaked.  "It is truly a glorious moment to meet you, your majesty." he said once more nodding his head.

Reska blinked as he stared the girl up and down. Ethania definitely was not a normal name. He wasn’t about to judge her of course, but he felt something was off. He wasn’t exactly sure what however.

The longer Reska stared at her, the more he felt it. The feeling of something odd. He tilted his head at her as he thought about it. Ethania? Ethan… That’s it.

Growing up, Reska wasn’t particularly smarter than everyone else, he just thought about things…differently. He had a unique talent for figuring things out about a person. And when this girl said the name "Ethania," it was clear to him that something was off.

That woman was not a woman at all, but a man. And Reska only figured it out by removing the "ia." Now he couldn’t help but chuckle a bit as he thought about it. That’s why this "woman" was so charming to him.

Despite knowing cross dressing was illegal, he didn’t mind. To him, he could get married to this "girl" and become king. Then, he’d be able to reveal his secret when the time was right.

[#f4c462 [i "Ah, it’s a pleasure to meet you too, Ethania,"]] he said softly. He was only going to pretend he didn’t know that this woman was a man. At least for now.

Ethan smiled up softly at the prince with at his chuckle. "What was that about?" He wondered internally. Did he find him amusing? He was doing all the proper etiquette. But the chuckle made him smile even more.

 The prince was melting his heart. He looked down shy as he's quietly blushed. "I hope his majesty is enjoying the gala. It's a lovely ball that you have held." He mused. Actually, Ethan thought it was the most horrible thing he'd ever been to. 

He'd never been to a ball before, but everyone here was extravagantly dressed. All he saw was flashes of money people were showing off.  Their money could go towards way more useful causes in his opinion. Like the homeless or orphanages. There were many of them usually on the outskirts of Brighthead.

But he kept a smile and played along. Just for a sanity's sake. "So your highness, I hear you were looking for a bride." He was trying to make conversation and to keep his heart from jumping out of him. "I know you just entered the ball. But be careful. Some of these maidens..." He began. 

He was trying to warn the guy. He might have been a prince, but he needed to know the truth. "Act like ladies, but they are not. Some of them are actually very selfish. It would not make for a good Queen to rule by your side. Vanity doesn't help anyone. Or narcissism."  He advised quietly. 

He pointed to one girl with a very big dress. "Her father had to take out a loan for that dress. The only reason I know this is because my father told me"  Ethan winced, calling the guy a father was a push for him. "Nobody should force their parents to go into debt because of a dress." He shook his head disappointed in today's society.

As Reska glanced back at the girl Ethan had pointed out, he let out a long sigh. [#f4c462 [i "Thank you for letting me know,"]] he said softly, giving him a warm smile. He then looked up at the clock the was pinned above the main entrance. Five minutes until he had to choose his bride.

Reska looked around a bit. He hummed softly before he spoke once again. [#f4c462 [i "Five minutes until it’s time for me to choose my bride,]] he began. He then glanced around to make sure nobody was listening. [#f4c462 [i "Could it be possible that you would like to participate…mister Winters?"]] he asked with a smirk.

It was clear that he knew Ethan’s secret now. However, he grabbed his hand and looked him in the eyes, showing that he did not mind. In fact, he was actually happy.

Ethan's heart sank as he looked up at the prince horrified. He was found out. He trembled in the man's hold. "I..."  He began. If he denied it, he could get found out more then just  the prince. That would be the end of him! 

Wait... a... second... Did Prince Reska just asked him for his hand in marriage!? Ethan blinked again stunned. Nnnooo, this had to be one of his really badly fantasized  daydreams! He tried to gather himself as he looked up at the Prince again and whispered back. "If you know that I'm a gentleman and you know your own laws, sir. Then you know if anyone finds out I am male I would be executed. It's against the law to be gay. I won't  live my life out hiding from a law as a queen in a dress!" He looked offended that this guy would even want him to do that!

 Yes sure, he had an adornment for the prince Reska. But that didn't mean he was willing to put his life on the line for a fantasy! "That would never work, you're asking me something that I-"  then he stopped. He was in a dress, at the ball, where the prince was supposed to pick a bride. He had out himself  in this situation so not to be homeless and starve. He really had no room to talk. He quietly averted his eyes lowering his head. "Yes, I'll marry you- your majesty." He said solemnly. There was not much more he could say.
_Gregory_Reska Novelia   43d ago

Reska couldn’t help but laugh. Ethan’s arguments before were amusing to him. Not because they were dumb. They’d be completely valid…if Reska was literally anyone else. He remembered that despite him only being a prince, nobody could legally execute anyone without his permission. I mean, he does have SOME form of authority.

It was quite improper for Reska to be laughing so hard, but he couldn’t help it. [#f4c462 [i "Apologies for my outburst, Ethania,"]] he muttered as he wiped away a single tear. He then cleared his throat, knowing everyone was now staring at them. [#f4c462 [i "I couldn’t help but laugh. Your last argument was adorable,"]] he suggested as he smiled at Ethan.

Taking a deep breath, Reska clapped his hands. [#f4c462 [i "Everyone,"]] he began, grabbing Ethan’s hand once again. [#f4c462 [i "I have chosen my bride,"]] he announced. Despite the other women’s jealousy, they still applauded. The did not want to be seen as rude. However, the ball was far from over. Now, it was time for a feast. It was customary that the Prince and chosen bride will sit and eat together.

Ethan kept his head down. His face was scarlet red, it almost matched his dress. As he held the prince's hand he tried  to look meek. But honestly, he didn't know if he was more embarrassed to be stared at. Or if he was in complete shock that he was marrying the men of his dreams! Ethan  gulped as he heard the announcement. 

His heart was now just ricocheting around in his chest cavity. He looked up finally seeing everyone applauding. He forced a smile on his face as he followed the prince. Who let him buy his hand. He didn't want to say much more to give himself away. He hadn't known that the feast was going to happen so quickly! 

Ethan did know he had to eat with the prince though. What would he say? He wasn't a good conversationist. Again he was shy around people. He averted his eyes trying to think of something as they made their way towards the table. "Why am I not good at this?" He muttered in frustration. 

He had had plenty of classes on etiquette. But none on conversation! Or speaking  topics. Ethan glanced over at the man who though was blind, was listening. This man he didn't mind. But it still made him worried to mess up. He didn't know much about him. Mr. Winters had been very secretive about his life. Ethan had only been allowed to be in certain areas of his Palace and mostly his days had been filled with 2 weeks of classes on etiquette. 

Ethan looked up and everyone again watching them all move about to their own tables. They all probably hated him, the ladies did obviously. Because he had been chosen and they weren't. But he knew a lot of them weren't after the prince Reska, because they loved him. They were after his money. After his status. 

That's not what Ethan had come for. He'd  come to pay back Mr. Winters, have food in his stomach, and a roof over his head. But most of all Ethan had just wanted a chance to see a glimpse of the prince. Not thinking that he would actually be the one marrying him! He just wanted one glimpse. He had planned to stay in the background. He didn't think he'd end up this far close to the prince! Now he was going to marry him!! His face was scarlet all over again. The things he got himself into!

Reska hummed softly as he led Ethan to the main dining area. Seats for the two of them await at the table in the center of the room. He sat down beside Ethan as butler’s and maids served everyone drinks and food. 

After everyone had seated, Reska’s Royal Advisor— the man who raised him when his parents perished —stood, holding his glass of wine above his head. The man tapped to top of his glass with a spoon, which got everyone’s attention.

[i "Today we celebrate our Prince. And—"]] blah blah blah. He spoke about the kingdom and stuff. ((I’m too lazy to type out a speech.)) At the very end however, he pointed at Ethan. [i "Miss… What are your thoughts about Prince Reska?"]

Ethan internally was panicking and scrambling to figure what to say. He listened to the speech as he slowly ate and panicked. (He was pretty good at multitasking.) But he didn't know what to do! He'd never been put on the spot like this before! Never had to speak  to a crowd before. 

As a beggar no one really paid him any attention or bothered to look at him. Thank gods he had heard other speakers in the streets and their passion for what they spoke about and for. 

He glanced over at prince Reska. He was giving him as much resentment of a look, hidden behind a smile. His eye twitched. He adornment for the prince, yes. But this guy loved to laugh at him. Was this a joke? Were they all doing this to torment him before he was executed!? Was this a big sham!?

 He didn't know how to deal with this, but if they were going to be doing this kind of torment to him... then he'd play into it until the end. Ethan stood slowly curtsing to all out attendance out of sheer respect and smiled faintly. "Hello, my name is Ethania Winters. Daughter to Mr  Winters estate. Thank you, for asking me sir. Prince Reska is one of the kindest and most notable princes I have ever met." He paused smiling. So far so good.

"He seems to care about his people. It is a true honor to come to this gala. I hope all of you have had a wonderful time." He paused for a second raising his chin to show that he was just as much one of them. "Prince Reska has a lovely sense of humor and a nice laugh. He's able to understand those around him who have things in common with him."

It was silent for a moment before everyone started clapping. They certainly liked Ethan’s answer, and so did Reska. Though he thought it might have been a bit TOO much, he was moved by the response. He smiled as he stared at Ethan. The Royal Advisor seemed satisfied as well when he sat down.

The rest of the night went smoothly, as everyone was excited about the new "princess," soon to be queen. And by the end of the night, everyone had left, leaving both Ethan and Reska alone.

[#f4c462 [i "I apologize if you were uncomfortable during this whole event. You see, similarly to you— if you couldn’t tell by now —I am breaking a law myself. By excepting you and even marring you when I know fully of your identity. You just…charmed me,]] Reska said softly. He rubbed his arm, taking a bit of a nervous tone. [#f4c462 [i "To be honest, I don’t care if I have to break a few laws… And honestly, I believe we can make this work out, if you stick by me."]]

By the end of the night, Ethan was exhausted. He sat on a bench outside on a balcony of the palace. As he listened to Reska, his eyes widened. He was surprised, so the prince was gay too! He looked away shy. Charming... no one had ever said that to him before. 

But then again he had never courted anyone before either. It was always the man's job to do it with a lady. But ladies... no. He looked up warily. "So... you want this to work? Well, I wanted tomake it work too. If we're both going to get out of this alive!" He had it quickly.

 He didn't want the prince to know that he had had a crush on him for God knows how many years! That would be just embarrassing! He wrinkled his nose. "So you're gay like me?" Ethan was using his normal male voice. Which really wasn't much different from his female one, just a little stronger.

 "I'm guessing you haven't told anyone because obviously the laws?" He waved off towards the background of Brighthead.  "I have never told anyone either." He averted his eyes again turning a deep shade of red like his dress.

"Mr. Winters is not my real father. I don't know who my father is nor do I really care. My mother  was a prostitute who died freezing to death in an alley giving birth to me. I was kind of just taken in off the street by Mr. Winters a few weeks ago. He's blind, can't see a single thing!" Ethan shook his head and disbelief. 

"That one he said- I was the most beautiful woman he had ever SEEN!" Ethan tried not to laugh at that one. It wasn't kind to make fun of the disabled. "So he took me in and for 2 weeks. I went through strict etiquette classes to basically win you over. I don't know why exactly, but now I know now. He wanted to gain a higher social position. So how are you going to break it to your advisor I'm a man?" He looked up wryly at the Reska
_Gregory_Reska Novelia   43d ago

Reska rubbed the back of his neck. He hadn’t really thought about that yet. He really didn’t know how he should address this to his Royal Advisor… What could he say? He tilted his head as he thought about it. He knew he really couldn’t tell his advisor at all.

[#f4c462 [i "Let’s…not worry about that for now,]] Reska said nervously. He knew that at the moment, it wouldn’t go well. [#f4c462 [i "I think he’s the last person we can tell, at the moment… However, someone I would trust with my life might work in our favor,]] he suggested. That one person he was talking about, was one of his butlers, Sebus.

Sebus was very close to Reska, almost like a father figure. He knew he could tell Sebus anything, and he would never tell anyone. That’s why Reska trusted him. He’d take Reska’s words with him to the hrave.

Ethan had just as much as Reska to lose in this situation. He understand not of wanting to come out right away about the situation. Also only wanting to tell one confidant. He himself, didn't have anyone he could tell. If Mr Winters had found out that he was actually a man he would have been in deep trouble. He had dressed himself and bathed himself with no help.

He had demanded it while living at Mr winner's home. The maids and butlers were not allowed to be near him when he was unclothed. He had said that he was extremely shy. He sighed closing his eyes. He nodded quietly understanding.

Ethan then froze thinking... if they were to get married they were supposed to have offspring. This was to carry on Reska's his family name. He turned beat red once more. He clapped a hand over his mouth. Consummation of the night, the wedding night to be exact! He gulped opening his eyes after a bit of trembling.

He was ready to run, he looked to Reska terrified. "How exactly are we supposed to have offspring to carry on your family name? If nobody knows that we're both men!?" He desperately pointed out crossing his arms. The dress was starting to get heavy on his thin frame, he was exhausted. He had to sit back down again on the bench. 

"What are we going to do!? Discreetly find a baby somewhere!? It's not like they have a baby store or something!?" He tossed his hand off towards the distance frustrated  and terrified. Sure, they had an orphanages. But very few had actual infants. 

They'd have to find an infant that look like them. He raised a brow at Reska. "Do you have an idea of how we're going to fix that situation? I'm pretty sure most of your people are not going to accept two princes or two kings. Plus, your line would end with you and no future king! You know how people are here with traditions!" He felt horrible  for being so harsh to Reska. "I'm sorry...I'm scared." He admitted. 

He looked down, the more he thought about this the more dangerous it just seemed for both of them. What was he getting himself into or that he was already in to be the exact? He looked down at his hands, they trembled hard.

[#f4c462 [i "Uhh…"]] Reska wasn’t sure what to say. He knew Ethan was right, though he kinda wished he wasn’t. It’s not like men can get pregnant. He really didn’t know what to do. But it wouldn’t help if he stressed about it.

[#f4c462 [i "How about…we worry about that when the time comes? Perhaps we’ll be able to figure out something over time,]] he suggested, rubbing the back of his neck.

Ethan's eye twitched, talking to Reska kept messing with his emotions. His heart didn't  know what to do with itself. He didn't know what to do himself. The prince was absolutely handsome and could be very distracting. He took a breath in. He couldn't  get a full breath in. 

"I need to get this dress off." He finally said. "It's heavy and starting to hurt. Corsets are a killer!" Yes, even with his slim build he was wearing a corset. It was a insisted upon by a maid. He had had to get it on himself and trying to get out of it would would be interesting. 

He looked at the Reska quietly. "Is there somewhere I can change?" He asked in pain. "and sleep?" He added that part too. He hoped he wouldnt have to sleep in the same bed as Reska just yet! He wanted to tell the prince that he was ready to pass out. 

But that wasn't proper. He had to be careful with what he said. He didn't want to change the prince's mind or anger him. Ethan actually did want to be with Reska. It had been a dream, he averted his eyes shy again. He was fidgeting with his hands in his lap. "Please..." He said softly. "Is there a place where I can change and can I get a fresh set of clothing? I didn't bring anything extra with me. I wasn't exactly expecting to be living here. I never thought  you'd notice me. It might take a few days time for Mr. Winters to send over my clothing. But they're all female clothing so..." His voice trailed off looking embarrassed. 

"You're a lot taller than me..." He added trying to distract himself from looking like a fool. "Here I am sitting at 5 ft 3 and 18-years-old. Some of the other beggars used to laugh at me and say that I could have been a midget." he joked.

Reska chuckled a bit before glancing at the clock. It chimed as the minute hand and hour hand both pointed at the twelve, showing it was 12AM. Letting out a soft yawn, Reska pulled out a bell from his pocket.

With a ring of a bell, Reska’s butler Sebus appeared in front of them. The man stood tall, even taller than Reska did, and was muscular. Though built like an ox, his white hair and clothes were neat, and he stood straight up like a soldier.

[#f4c462 [i "Ethan, this is Sebus, the man I told you about who I trust with my life. He will our secret safe. And most importantly, he’ll keep you safe,"]] Reska explained. [#f4c462 [i "With that being said, from here on out, he is yours to command. However, I will also give you a maid, just so it’s not as suspicious. Her name is Misha. I don’t trust her with my life, but she also doesn’t care about anyone’s secrets. So she won’t tell either,"]] he added.

After all that, he had Sebus lead Ethan to his room. The room was very spacious, with a large king sized bed. The bed had white, cotton bed sheets, three pillows lined in a row, and a soft, red comforter. There was a walk-in closet as well, but there was also a vanity inside the closet. There was a desk in the corner, with a bookshelf beside it.

Upon entering the room, there was a small dog sat at the end of the bed. He had a ribbon around his neck and a letter sat beside him. Reska had left the dog there in advance. At the time, he never knew who would be hid bride. But he wanted them to be happy. He thought it’d be nice to leave them with a gift on the first night.

Ethan looked around the room amazed at the bedroom. This was about the same size as his old home with the elderly couple! This entire place was for him!? He looked to prince Reska truly grateful. He bowed to him respectfully at the waist. He then grinned at seeing the puppy and raced over to it.

He was stunned this sweet cuddly thing was for him too! He crouched  down awkwardly in his dress and slowly reached out his hand to the puppy. He did this to let the little thing sniff him. He wasn't just going to scoop up the puppy without giving it a chance to get his scent first! He knew from first hand dogs could be skittish. You had to be gentle with them, especially the younger ones.

 The pain of the heavy dress and corset were almost memory at the back of his mind. He looked around the room. It seems so glamorous and luxurious. How could he ever pay Reska for this? He blushed looking back to the prince while still holding his hand out to the puppy.

"What am I supposed to do for clothing until mine comes? If we're going to keep this sham up, I'm going to have to wear women's clothing." He cringed at this. Sure, he was used to it by now after the last 2 weeks. But the fashion that the women wore in Brighthead was extremely extravagant for the aristocratic. He had been hoping he wouldn't have to keep doing this.

 But here he was having to. But but deep down inside... he knew if he wanted to be with Reska this is what he had to do. Ethan was determined to stay by the prince's side. He wasn't going to give up without a fight. This has been his dream. After all, he had never felt this way about someone else.

 He barely knew Reska,but he felt that this was right. That all this longing had led to this. He averted his eyes looking down shy again.

Reska glanced at Sebus and gestures to him. The butler nodded and walked off. He returned shortly with some clothes for Ethan to wear, and handed them to him.. They were some of the Prince’s clothes, so they’d be a little big on Ethan.

[#f4c462 [i "I hope those do for now,"]] he said with a smile. He yawned softly as he glanced into Ethan’s eyes. [#f4c462 [i "Anyway, I suppose it’s getting pretty late. I’ll leave you to rest. If you need anything, there’s a bell on the night stand. Ring it and either Misha or Sebus will come help you,"]] he explained.

Before turning away, he gently patted Ethan on the head. [#f4c462 [i "Good night,’"]] he said as he walked away. He then went to his own room.

Ethan didn’t know if he should be offended or melting. The prince had actually patted him on the head! But the thing about Ethan was... he could be a little bit petty. He smirked as he began to take his dress off. He was snapping the back metal buttons as far as he could reach while Reska was walking out of the room.

Ethan smirked wondering how prince Resca would react. He look to the butler innocently. “Can you help me with this? It’s a little hard on my own. I don’t have  tresting hooks to help me get the rest on my upper back. It would be nice if you could help me.” He smiled warmly as his eyes again flicked to Reska. 

Come on! He wanted Reska to react! He was hoping to win this one. With as much as he daydreamed about this guy he was expecting something! Reska was way too formal! He knew aristocratic royals were said to be uptight and boring. But this was just a little bit of humor and tease. 

He just wanted to see how far he could go before the prince lost it in any manner. “Unless  Prince Resca  wants to help me. I am to be his bride.” He offered. “I mean there would be nothing wrong with that. Nobody hast to know just like about our secret.”

Reska just smiled as he turned to face Ethan once again. He knew exactly what he was doing, just by noticing Ethan’s expression. [#f4c462 [i "Oh, of course I can,"]] he said with a smirk as he got closer to Ethan. He hummed as he began unlatching the rest of the buttons at the back of Ethan’s dress.

Afterwards, Reska even went as far as to help Ethan remove the entire top of the dress. He was quite unfazed. Other prince’s might have just let the butler handle this. But honestly, Reska enjoyed being able to help, no matter what it was… And he also didn’t want to lose this battle.

[#f4c462 [i "Would you like help with your corset as well, 𝒹ℯ𝒶𝓇?]] he asked casually as he helped Ethan the rest of the way out of his dress. He truly wondered how far Ethan was willing to go. However, as long as things didn’t get [b too] out of hand, Reska was willing to go along with it. He felt he didn’t have to act as proper anyway, since it was just the two of them.

Ethan squeaked as Reska got behind him and help unlatch the rest of the buttons. He was shocked that he even removed the top! Ethan hugged himself wide-eyed and embarrassed. This was the first time he'd actually been touched by a man in any fashion! His face was scarlet red again and he knew he was losing this battle. But if he kept going on, this was going to get very awkward very fast.

Ethan jerkily shook his head. "N-no! I-I don't need help with that part!" He stammered out. He looked down a bit defeated. What was he supposed to say now!? Did this guy actually just ask if he... His jaw dropped at the question! 

Did this guy just ask him if he needed help out of the rest of his dress!? He looked up at Reska with a searing gaze. "That is not proper, sir!" He said adamantly. Male or female, they were not married! Not yet at least.

 "Is it possible if I could get the butler to slap you?" Ethan  frowned annoyed. Reska was absolutely handsome, but he was infuriating! Ethan knew he was on foreign territory though. This was the prince's world. "and don't call me dear yet!" He added quickly. "Improper! We are not married, so you have no right to call me that! Call me a Ethania if you need to, or even Ethan.  But not dear!"  He stomped his heeled foot.

Reska started cracking up laughing as he watched Ethan’s reaction. Even to the point of wheezing. This was so funny to him, he just couldn’t stop. He definitely agreed it was improper of him to suggest, but he also felt it was only fair. I mean Ethan did just basically do the same thing moments agao by asking Reska to unbutton his dress in the first place.

[#f4c462 [i "𝓐ρσɬσցιҽട, Ɛ𝜏ԋαɳ— *wheeze* —𝜏σ ßҽ ԋσɳҽട𝜏, エ ԃιԃɳ’𝜏 ҽχρҽ𝓬𝜏 ყσᥙ 𝜏σ 𝜏αƙҽ 𝓶ҽ ടҽɾισᥙടɬყ,"]] he admitted, as he was only joking earlier. As he calmed himself down, he wiped away some tears that had rolled down his cheeks after he laughed so hard. Clearing his throat, he rubbed the back of his neck as he smiled at Ethan.

[#f4c462 [i "Ԩσɯҽʋҽɾ, エ ɯιɬɬ αɾցᥙҽ 𝜏ԋα𝜏 𝜏ԋҽɾҽ 𝜏ɾᥙɬყ ιട ɳσ ԋαɾ𝓶 ιɳ ԋαʋιɳց α ɬι𝜏𝜏ɬҽ ⨍ᥙɳ ιɳ ρɾιʋα𝜏ҽ,"]] Reska said as he lightly poked Ethan’s nose. [#f4c462 [i "エ 𝓶ҽαɳ, ɯԋα𝜏 ιട 𝜏ԋҽ ρσιɳ𝜏 σ⨍ ßҽιɳց "ρɾσρҽɾ" αɬɬ 𝜏ԋҽ 𝜏ι𝓶ҽ? エ’ԃ 𝓬ҽɾ𝜏αιɳɬყ 𝓶ᥙ𝓬ԋ ρɾҽ⨍ҽɾ 𝜏σ ԋαʋҽ ⨍ᥙɳ, α𝜏 ɬҽαട𝜏 ɯԋҽɳ ɳσ σɳҽ 𝓬αɳ ടҽҽ… エ⨍ ɳσ𝜏 αɬɬσɯҽԃ ιɳ 𝜏ԋҽ ρᥙßɬι𝓬’ട ҽყҽ."]]

Ethan's jaw dropped once again. He was hurt and offended. Reska was laughing at him!? Ethan had tears welling in his eyes. "Is that what I am to you! Just a way to have that kind of fun!?" He said with his words stumbling. 

The prince wasn't what he had expected. Honestly, he had thought that everything had seen from the brief sightings of Reska, that he would act like a gentleman. Be warm and kind. How  many times must he laugh at Ethan!? "Find yourself another bride!" He shouted frightened.

He raced for the bathroom, slamming the door behind him. He locked the door  back away from it panting through tears. He didn't want to be around Reska right now. He trembled harder and couldnt fight more exhaustion. But he'd rather be in the alleyway homeless, hungry, and miserable than to be treated like that. He never been with a man before in that manner. 

Tears were streaming down his face as he buried his face into his hands. He had not thought the prince would actually do that. He had just wanted a reaction. Yes, he'd been taunting. But again, he had thought Reska was a gentleman. He didn't think he would actually do this and say those things! 

Finally his slim form of a body gave into exhaustion. He collapsed hard to the floor unconscious. He shallowly breathed. Everything went dark. Ethan was gone in sleep, thank heavens he hadn't hit his head.

Well shit, I didn’t mean for that to happen…oh nyo… 
(´;Д;`) ))

Realizing his wrongdoings, Reska immediately felt horrible. He wasn’t laughing [b at] Ethan. At least, he wasn’t intending on making it seem that way. He immediately felt bad, but all he could do was watch his bride run away. It broke his heart watching Ethan cry, especially knowing he was the reason for it. He knew he needed to set things right.

Quickly, Reska followed in the direction that Ethan ran, until he reached the bathroom. Right as he reached the door, Ethan had slammed it in his face. Harsh, yet deserved, he figured. Taking what Ethan had said before to heart, he knew he couldn’t apologize now.

And so, Reska sat on the floor, back against the bathroom door. He decided he would wait until Ethan came out. So he waited, and waited, and waited. He couldn’t allow himself to sleep, in case Ethan ever came out. Even when the sun eventually rose, he did not allow himself to sleep. He just stayed put, looking like a sad, tired puppy.

(Plot twist! 😆Thank glob I know victorian history and studied it. Lol. Those dresses could be up to 75 extra lbs on a girl who only ate like a sparrow to keep a tiny figure. Then whale bone corsets could knock the air out of you! Behavior between men and women was...strained. To say the least.Even speaking out of turn and a woman got punished severally in royal courts publicly. It was brutal.)

Ethan woke up in the morning feeling sore and miserable, with every joint aching in his body. His mouth was dry, he sat up groaning and hel his head. He  looked to the bathroom door. Where was he? How did he get in a dress!? He looked down confused, the top was down on it. 

Then everything from the night before came flashing back! Even the last two weeks! He clapped a hand over his mouth feeling humiliated and looked to the door. He had to leave the bathroom eventually. He couldn't stay in there the rest of his life. He weakly got up hesitant and headed towards the door.

 Hooking one arm around his body to a shoulder. Ethan warily unlocked the door and peeked out. He looked down surprises to see Reska sitting there. Did he really want to go out there with him there!? But then he saw that Reska looked... depressed? Why was Reska-  did he feel bad for what he had done? 

Ethan cocked his head slowly beginning to understand. He had judged Reska too quickly. The prince felt bad, Ethan averted his eyes feeling horrible himself. Usually people woul throw snowballs at him, mock him, and laugh at him when he was begging. He didn't know which hurt more, the of the laughter or nasty comments. The comments were about him being out in the snow. They weren't kind comments either. 

The laughter was the thing that drove Ethan the most crazy. He didn't like being laughed at. He thought at the time that he would never get to the level of having a normal life. Not like some of the middle class people. At least he had been born and bred in the slum with kindness  in his heart. He raised his voice though it was cracked. "I'm sorry...your majesty for my behavior last night. I misjudged you. I promise it won't happen again." He was afraid Reska might punish him for his behavior.

 So he took a step back warily. He had heard that sometimes royals had a tendency to be a little violent. So many rumors... he didn't know what to believe. He had wanted to believe that royals weren't like that. He was trying hard not to he wanted to believe.

 He wanted Reska to be  everything that he had believed him to be. He wanted to be with him. He wanted Reska to be happy. He wanted himself to be happy. He closed his eyes taking the step forward back. "Reska if you need to discipline me for my ill behavior I understand. I shouldn't have assumed things about you. That was rude of me to do so. Sgain I am truly sorry."

TvT Gorl- My heart is fragile and I have an emotional attachment to these boys now. I almost cried, man-))

Reska fell backwards when he felt the door open. Glancing up at Ethan, he could finally smile again. He immediately stood up, and after turning to face him, he hugged him tightly. [#f4c462 [i "𝓝𝓸, 𝔂𝓸𝓾 𝓭𝓸𝓷’𝓽 𝓷𝓮𝓮𝓭 𝓽𝓸 𝓪𝓹𝓸𝓵𝓸𝓰𝓲𝔃𝓮. 𝓘 𝓴𝓷𝓸𝔀 𝓘’𝓶 𝓪 𝓵𝓲𝓽𝓽𝓵𝓮 𝓶𝓾𝓬𝓱 𝓼𝓸𝓶𝓮𝓽𝓲𝓶𝓮𝓼 𝓪𝓷𝓭 𝓰𝓸 𝓸𝓿𝓮𝓻𝓫𝓸𝓪𝓻𝓭. 𝓘’𝓶 𝓼𝓽𝓻𝓪𝓷𝓰𝓮 𝓪𝓷𝓭 𝓮𝓷𝓮𝓻𝓰𝓮𝓽𝓲𝓬. 𝓘’𝓶 𝓰𝓸𝓸𝓯𝔂 𝓪𝓷𝓭 𝓪 𝓫𝓲𝓽 𝓸𝓾𝓽 𝓽𝓱𝓮𝓻𝓮.

Reska then quickly let go of Ethan, clearing his throat. Trying to be more proper wasn’t a struggle for him in public, but he couldn’t help being, well the way he was now. [#f4c462 [i "Ⳑσσƙ, ɯԋα𝜏 エ’𝓶 𝜏ɾყιɳց 𝜏σ ടαყ ιട… エ ԃιԃɳ’𝜏 𝓶ҽαɳ 𝜏σ ρɾҽടҽɳ𝜏 𝓶ყടҽɬ⨍ ιɳ α ɯαყ 𝜏ԋα𝜏 𝓶αԃҽ ι𝜏 ടҽҽ𝓶 ɬιƙҽ エ ɯαട ɬαᥙցԋιɳց α𝜏 ყσᥙ.

(I am the sorry...lmbo! You're a cute little brother!) 

Ethan squeaked as he was pulled into the prince's arms. He listened to Reska, his heart melted all over again. He returned the hug, wrapping his slender arms around the prince and return the hug. He closed his eyes, he felt so safe in his arms. He rested his cheek against Reska's chest. "Will you just hush with  the apologies." He muttered he wanted to listen to Reska's heartbeat.  

How could somebody be so kind after what he had done last night!? He'd stressed himself out to the point of passing out and been rude to the prince! How could he have not been punished for this!? He didn't understand. He looked up at Reska as he put himself down a bit.

 He frowned. "Stop that." He insisted resting his chin on Reska's chest. "I don't see what's wrong with being different. Look at our situation." He raised a brow pointedly. "Do you think that I judge you for being gay or different? Hello, I'm gay too! I'm  also an introvert! Everyone who judges people like us and don't want to try to understand that we're all different are jerks. Straight or not, they  just don't have any happiness in their life. Be grateful for everyday you have with people who care about you. Because one day you might not have that anymore." He lectured . His elderly adopted parents flashed in his mind and he tried to get that thought out of his head rather quickly. "Again, I'm truly sorry."

All Reska responded with…was a noise. Like a high pitch groan? He wasn’t upset. In fact, this man was tearing up while keeping a huge smile oh his face. He was about to cry from happiness. He had never really had anyone to spend time with growing up. All the other royals thought he was weird for being excitable. So this was the first time anyone’s ever accepted him, which made him emotional.

Reska held Ethan tightly as he sniffled, trying not to cry. [#f4c462 [i "㆜ԋαɳƙ ყσᥙ, Ɛ𝜏ԋαɳ…"]] he muttered softly. He took a deep breath, calming his emotions. He started to hum softly, a gentle melody. One that he remembered his mother singing to him before she died.

After a moment or two, Reska had passed out. The lack of sleep had finally gotten to him, as he was both physically and emotionally exhausted. His unconscious body leaned against Ethan as he started to snore softly.

(Sorry, for not typing more! I've just had a very busy day so far! I got a Christmas present in the mail. My mother bought me Wish Ninja turtles action figures. Their faces are killing me 😂 They look like they're on crack.)

Ethan smiled softly as he carried Reska to the bed. This guy was bigger and much heavier then he was. He probably would hear about this from the advisor later on. This was definitely not proper. But he didn't care. Reska was with any punishment  or risk. Reska had fallen asleep in his room after all. 

He willow bones so to speak. He didn't have the strength to carry the guy all the way to his room. Ethan carefully laid Reska on his bed. He went back to the bathroom and changed. It felt amazing  to get out of that accursed dress. He wore Reska's oversized clothing and climbed on the other side of the bed.

 He pulled the plush comforter over Reska, careful to make sure he was alright. He gently touched the prince's  cheek blushing but looked worried. "Man, if only missing a night of sleep does this to him I can only imagine what he would be like out on the streets as a beggar. He wouldn't make it." He smiled  weakly. Ethan yawned quietly as he curled up beside Reska. 

His hand softly slid off of Reska's cheek and laid against his arm. The two of them were sound asleep side by side within minutes. Things couldn't of been better for him. His dream had come true.

Reska awoke hours later to someone tapping his shoulder. He rolled over onto his side and saw Sebus staring down at him with a worried expression. [i "Your majesty, your royal advisor is asking for you in the throne room. Hurry and get downstairs before he finds you in here,"] Sebus scolded.

Reska nodded before yawning as he sat up. He glanced at Ethan, who laid behind him, then stood. He quickly changed his clothes and went downstairs. He wondered what his advisor wanted as he traveled down the long hallway.

Upon entering the throne room, the royal advisor stood with his arms crossed. He seemed unhappy by his expression. Then again, he always had that expression no matter what, so Reska was unsure weather he should be scared or not. He nervously bowed to the advisor uncertain of his intentions. For all he knew, the guy somehow found out Ethania was a man.

[i "Where is your bride?"] the advisor asked. [#f4c462 [i "Ԋҽ- Sԋҽ ιട 𝓬ᥙɾɾҽɳ𝜏ɬყ 𝜏αƙιɳց α ɳαρ. ᗯԋყ ԃσ ყσᥙ αടƙ?"]] Reska questioned, tilting his head at the advisor. [i "Oh, no reason. I just need you two together to discuss some important matters. Do you mind getting her?"] the advisor explained. Reska nodded in agreement and turned to leave.

Ethan blinked as he woke up groggy. Had he really gone to sleep again!? This was the most sleep he had had in quite some time. He was beginning  to feel spoiled. He was stretching as his toes curled. Okay, maybe he couldn't get used to a big bed. 

A big soft bed, he smiled groggy. He looked over to his side. Reska was gone.  Well thank, goodness he had gotten some sleep. He probably princely duties he had to do. Ethan set up wondering what he should do. Probably find something to eat. He was starving. 

He bit his lip not knowing how to go about that. He looked over at the Bell. He felt bad to have somebody else wait on him. He was used to taking care of himself. He remembered that when he had asked his elderly mother for something, she called him lazy. "You have your own two feet, you know where the kitchen is!" She'd always told him. 

He smiled weakly at the memory. They didn't treat him bad, they just taught him to be independent. That was something as a  beggar he had to learn. Because nobody was going to help him. So he stood trying to smooth out his clothing and head off to go find the kitchen.

Reska returned to Ethan’s room, unaware that he left. He slowly poked his head inside, thinking Ethan would still be asleep. But no, he was gone. Confused, he glanced around. Still no sign of him. Where did he go?

Reska panicked a bit as he returned to the hallway. Despite the fact that it would make more sense if Ethan had just woken up and simply left the room, Reska’s brain was thinking otherwise. What if he was kidnapped?! His thought process, though a little out there, was not entirely invalid. In fact, there have been many cases where someone would kidnap a prince’s bride. Either for money, or for the prince’s bloodline to end with him.

[i "He went that way, sir. I’m assuming he’s in search of food,"] Sebus said, interrupting Reska’s frantic panic. The butler had been standing ideally by outside of Ethan’s room ever since Reska had left the first time. He was often the one to see when something bad happens, because he usually just observed everything.

[#f4c462 [i "Oԋ 𝓶ყ ցσԃ, Sҽßᥙട, ყσᥙ ɬι⨍ҽടαʋҽɾ! ㆜ԋαɳƙ ყσᥙ,"]] Reska cheered, giving the butler a nod before running down the long hallway. When he caught up to Ethan, he was out of breath. [#f4c462 [i "Ɛ𝜏ԋαɳ- *huff huff* -ɯԋҽɾҽ αɾҽ ყσᥙ ցσιɳց?"]] he questioned as he tried to catch his breath. [#f4c462 [i "Уσᥙ ɳҽҽԃ 𝜏σ 𝓬ԋαɳցҽ ιɳ𝜏σ α ԃɾҽടട σ⨍ ടσ𝓶ҽ ടσɾ𝜏 ι⨍ ყσᥙ’ɾҽ ցσιɳց 𝜏σ ɯσɳԃҽɾ αɾσᥙɳԃ ßყ ყσᥙɾടҽɬ⨍. ᗯԋα𝜏 ι⨍ 𝜏ԋҽ ɾσყαɬ αԃʋιടσɾ ടαɯ ყσᥙ ɬιƙҽ 𝜏ԋιട?

Ethan facepalmed. He felt completely foolish. God he had been so foolish!? Why hadn't he remembered the situation  at hand!? He looked apologetic to Reska and bowed to him. "I'm sorry, I completely forgot!" He looked down, but then he paused.

 "I don't have any clothes that are mine! I don't know what's going on! Why Mr. Winters hasn't brought them! He looked  confused. Was Mr. Winters disowning him!? Had he messed up? 

That made no sense! Because he had done exactly what Mr. Winters had wanted! His mind was in panic mode! He couldn't put on the same ball gown either. That would look odd. He bit his lip. "Does the maid have something I can wear or any females around here in a smaller size?" He asked urgently. He knew he had to rush and get this done! Doing makeup, that was fine. He could do that, but first he needed to find clothing.
