Be happy and have the best time of your life. Those were the words I told myself when I walked into the ballroom. My Ladies were right by my side as people's eyes landed on me.
I took in a deep breath and walked forward. Adrean met me halfway and asked me for a dance. I agreed even though my mind was elsewhere. I hated what I felt, but I couldn't help myself. I was looking forward to seeing Henry. I knew there was no way he would come to such a ball and much worse if he knew who Adrean really was.
I was sad and tried my best to hide the truth, the dance ended in no time and my ladies went off to enjoy themselves.
The queen approached us and gave me a glass of wine to take. I tried turning her down but she insisted. I decided to take it to please her.
Adrean was right by my side looking all happy and very comfortable. When he left my side with his mother the queen, I breathed out in relief. Something about them felt very off. I did trust Adrean but not the queen. It's clear that she had no respect for me as a married woman, all she wanted was for me to be with her son.
