“Your Highness, one word and we can stop this.”
” Your naivety is sweet, my Lord.”
“This parley was supposed to be a formality.”
“Did no one tell you that our parts were chosen long ago. Yesterday you sought a comfort in my bed, but love has no place on a battlefield.”
“A Stone Cold Queen – the name suits you.”
“Today I am not a queen, but a warrior. Although I may not live to see another day, I would suffer a thousand deaths for my people.”
“That is such a foolish reason to die.”
“Ah, but that is a good reason to be remembered.”
This is an excerpt from the story I am working on, right now it is all over the place and mostly in my head, but I still hope it will break free one of these days.
