Allen had never been so terrified in his life. That he was

thoroughly trained in the courtly manners of nine nations

and had practiced ruthlessly for life in the High Court for the

past two years did nothing to assuage his fit of nerves.

He smoothed his hands down the front of his jacket.

Normally his clothes made him feel better, gave him armor

to rely upon when all else failed. The new jacket was dark

gold and embroidered with amber and pearls, had a subtle

rose and feather pattern in the fabric. It fell to mid-shin, as

latest fashion dictated, slit up the sides to his hips and cut

so that the white pants beneath showed well, flaring slightly

where they were tucked into high, glossy brown boots.

Lace-trimmed cuffs fell to just past his wrists, longer than

he cared for but also a dictate of fashion. But though he

admired the clothes, had felt confident as he put them on,

at present they brought him no comfort.

Reaching up, he lightly touched his hair. He hadn't

brought his own servants, so he'd been anxious that he

wouldn't be able to see it arranged properly, but a palace

chamber servant had swept it up in an elaborate twist of

several braids, secured with jeweled pins and clips. It had

taken her well over an hour, but Allen had been immensely

pleased with the results. He had always been particularly

proud of his hair, but at present even that failed to bolster

him.

Nor did all the beautiful jewelry he wore, the crowning

piece a diadem of sapphires and yellow diamonds gifted to

him by his parents. One thing to be told, over and over

again, that he had been chosen as High King Sarrica's new

consort. Quite another to be minutes away from meeting

the man he had been preparing to marry for the past two

years.

What if, despite all the preparations, the High King did

not want to marry him? It was, unfortunately, a possible

outcome. Everyone knew High King Sarrica had been madly

in love with his late husband, High Consort Nyle, who had

been well-known and greatly liked despite the fact that he'd

left the empire as a child and hadn't returned until he was

sixteen. Sarrica himself was a fierce soldier; stories of his

deeds in battle were still told, over and over, usually right

alongside rumors that he would never marry any but

another soldier.

Which couldn't be true, or Allen wouldn't be there. He'd

been specifically chosen because he wasn't a soldier,

because he was meant to complement the High King's

strengths and abilities. Allen's battleground was the court.

His weapons were words and other people. He was

precisely what the High King needed, or so he'd been told

by those who had prepared him for the role. Their words

had been echoed by his mother, who was rarely wrong.

Who'd fought so fiercely to see Allen was chosen, had been

so proud when he had been—happier even than Allen, it

had seemed at the time. If he'd thought her relentless with

his training when he was young, it did not compare to his

High Consort training.

Allen had been thoroughly trained in law, diplomacy,

court manners, and the traditions of every kingdom in the

Harken Empire. He spoke fourteen languages and also knew

three dead ones. Further training ensured he could dance,

sing, ride, and even host many religious ceremonies if

necessary. He had been crafted since birth to rule a

kingdom, and more recently molded to rule an empire.
