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
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
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
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.
