That swammed Melody. Donis stepped back but of their way in haste. What happened to her? Daris caught a glimpse af Melody with wide, classy eyes and foam coming out of her mouth as they lited her from the ground and carried her off to the nedical ward. Doris placed her hand against her chest and tell her heart beat race beneath her hand. Was she allergic to the flower as well? Was she…

“What happened to her?” Prince William asked, his brows furrowed. He looked around the room as if the answer might come forward. Each and every one of the guests looked just confused and homified as Prince William did.

“Exactly! You don’t know this maid very well at all.” Jack interrupted. “I heard rumors that this maid had stolen from Lady Melody and beaten as punishment. Perhaps she wanted revenge—”

“No!” Prince Daniel spoke up next. Doris was a little startled that either prince had cared enough to defend her in front of everyone. She didn’t think anyone in this room Would ever have risked Speaking up for her. It would have warmed her heart if she wasn’t so terrified of what was to come. Would they kill her for this? “Prince Martin is right, Doris would never do something like this to anyone! Even someone that was cruel to her, I know she has a wonderful heart. Please, let her go.” Prince Daniel pleaded.
