    If the King was honest with himself, he was surprised with Princess Alix admitted to having some free time. He had assumed she would either be busy or lie about being busy. After all, he knew that he was not her favorite person. Though, things since their agreement had been getting better. She seemed happier, in the least. It was hard to tell if she was actually happy yet or not. 

    "I did not have anything in mind," Kyran told her honestly. A small grin came over his lips before he continued on. "Is there anything that you would like to do or see Princess?" He wondered if there was anything Alix was interested in, besides going down into the city. It would not be possible to do that yet as she still needed some time with her lessons. That much was clear after the day's situation with the bird... though he couldn't - and didn't want to - keep her behind the walls forever. 

    He continued to lead her deeper into the castle. He was relaxed while he moved forward. It was clear there was nowhere the King needed to be or where he wanted to go. What he wanted was right next to him. He wanted to spend some time with his future Queen, to understand her better if she would allow him to. 

    "We have many options at our disposal. We could go around the castle gardens to walk in the sun, if you would like. Of course, there is the library, kitchen, tennis and the other amenities." He was quiet for a moment before an idea passed through his mind. The journals had mentioned several of the past Earth rulers finding interest in this. "I could also show you some magic or some magical items if that interests you. How would you like to spend your time, Alix?"

    Pursing her lips together, Alix followed Kyran as he walked. Doing the tradition of keeping a few steps behind him since they were inside castle walls. The last thing she needed right now was for one of the council members to be passing by and chastizing them for not following the tradition of the royals that were past down for generations. Or, whatever they'd probably say and go on about other things that Alix was sure she'd zone out of.

    Slowly, Alix crossed her arms behind her back as they walked. Thinking over what she could possibly want to do, as well as taking in Kyran's suggestions. None of it really seemed to interest her. Honestly, if they were going to be doing something that boring, she'd much rather of just gone off and read in her room or something.

    Then, as the King brought up magic, Alix slowed her walking and looked at Kyran. Her eyes wide as she looked at him in surprise. Sure, she knew that he and others knew how to use magic as well as some magical items floated around the castle, but. In the time she's been here, Kyran's not offered to explain how magic worked or offered to show her anything of the sorts. She hadn't even really seen any with her own eyes either.

    "You're not joking are you?" Alix asked, looking at the man warily. "About showing me some magic and items?" She watched the King for a moment. Praying to the gods that he hadn't been pulling her leg when he had suggested it to her. "Because I'd love to do that. I want to see what you can do."

    "Why do you keep asking me that?" Kyran asked as he stopped walking and looked back at her. "I have not joked with you once, have I?" He wondered why Alix thought he was constantly messing with her. As much as he enjoyed jokes, he had decided not to do that with Alix. Especially since she always seemed to think that his jokes would be rather rude. Ones where he offered something and then took it away in the last moment. Besides, he wanted - needed - Alix to trust him. Being honest and kind was the only way he was going to do that.

    He gave her a small nod before turning and continuing down the hallway. "I am glad that you like my suggestion and that it interests you. Let me lead you to the tower now." Once he turned, a bit of a dopey smile came over the king's face. He was beyond pleased that she was so excited about seeing magic. It would be a good way to pass the time and something that they could return to if the princess found it interesting enough. "Is there any magic in particular that you want to see? Or something you want to see happen?

    Once they reached the tower, Kyran stopped in front of the door and turned to Alix. "Before we go inside, it is important that I give you some rules. First of all, do not touch anything without permission. Most of the objects in there are magical and their purpose is not always clear. Secondly, Be careful. Thirdly, if there is something that you wish to see or play with, tell me and we can move forward from there. Do you understand?"

    Kyran looked down at the woman as he waited for her to respond. It really was really important that Alix knew what she was getting herself into. Magic was a lot of fun but it was also dangerous if not understood properly. It would be difficult for Alix to ever understand magic fully without being able to posses it herself.

    "What?" Alix asked, slightly confused about what Kyran was asking her. Then, a look of understanding came over her face. "It's not what I meant." She told him as she followed him down the hall once more. "With my generation at home, when we talk to each other and ask that. What we really mean is that we're asking if they're being serious about a subject." Alix explained.

    "Say that you heard that Joe was dating Sally. You're surprised by it so you say, you're not joking, are you? The person you're talking to would be like, No, I'm serious. They're really dating." Alix stopped her little explanation as she waited to see if Kyran understood what she tried to explain. Slang on earth seemed to be quite different then here, so she hoped he understood.

    "The tower?" Alix repeated, a little uncertainty filling her voice as she glanced at the King worriedly. "In the fairytales back home, the kings always locked the Princess up in the tower. She has to wait to be rescued by a Prince." Alix added on, then pursed her lips together. Why was she so talkative at the moment? Confusion flashed across her face for a moment before she willed it away and tried to seem like she was neutral on everything.

    "Hmm, no. Surprise me. Just make sure it's fun." Alix said, smiling a little bit. She really didn't know what to expect to see, so anything would be cool in her book. Then, as they came to the door, Alix stopped walking a few steps behind Kyran and looked at him worriedly for a moment as he explained everything to her. Rules of his really weren't that easy to follow, she tended to try and push his buttons, but this time. She got the feeling that she should really listen to him.

    "I promise to behave," Alix told him, then offered a small smile. "Now, can we please go in? I wanna see some magic."

    Kyran let out a low laugh at her explanation. "Ah, I see. So you do not think that I am lying to you then." He said, his own body untensing. The King was doing his best to make a connection with Alix. Though it was a bit difficult when they weren't always understanding each other. It was important that he continue to try. 

    He looked back at her again curiously as she told her story about the tower. The man gave her a soft smile. While it was true that he kept her in the castle, for now, he had no intention of keeping her in any tower. "I have never heard of that happening here. Besides, does it help that I am still just a Prince and not a King yet?" The man asked with a teasing smile on his face. "Perhaps you should be concerned once my coronation is completed."

    With that being said, he turned back to the door of the tower and opened it up. The room was circular and giant. Though there seemed to be a theme in this room. Cauldrons stood in the middle of the room. One side had large pantries that covered the whole wall. Another was a wall of different plants and ingredients that were often needed. Though, there were stairs leading up. "This is the potion room. It is a more calm sense of magic that almost anyone can do but it takes a lot of patience. Of course, there are some recipes that require magic users but not all. This is mostly used for healing and some body modifications but not many." 

    The King headed over to one of the cupboards and opened it up, revealing a large storage of potions. He took out two vials. One pink and the other was purple. "Here are two that you'll find interesting. The effects will only last an hour at the longest." The man handed her one vial before taking the other and drinking it. He waited a few moments before turning to her with a smile. 

    "What do you think?" The King asked, bubbles now coming out of his mouth as he spoke and breathed. Different colors seemed to come out based on his voice. When he was breathing, it was a light blue, though as he spoke, the range of colors changed. "There is not much use to this one, admittedly, though it is rather interesting and the children always enjoy it. Now, do you want to try yours? It'll do something different."

    "Your words, not mine," Alix mumbled quietly. referring to what Kyran said about her worrying once he was King. A small sigh escaped from the stubborn Princess as she walked through the halls with the King. This place was a lot more complicated then the halls she's walked before, so she was getting a little nervous about getting lost.

    Thankfully, they seemed to have arrived at the tower before anything really happened. An all that Alix saw, really amazed her. "Wow." She breathed out quietly as she took in the cauldrons, the cupboards and all of the other things that seemed to be filling the room. The different colored potions really caught her attention though. They all looked so harmless like they were just colored waters or something.

    When King Kyran picked up one of the bottles, Alix really wasn't expecting anything. She took the pink bottle and just looked down at the vial. Turning it around a little in her hands as she admired it. Although, when Kyran spoke next and she looked up. Alix was surprised. "Woah." Alix breathed out as she watched the bubbles floating around. Reaching out, Alix popped one of them. A small giggle escaping from her lips as it popped like a normal bubble. "I can see why Kids would like them," Alix mumbled quietly as she poked a few more bubbles before looking at her vial.

    Nervously, Alix glanced towards Kyran, she wasn't sure why. It's not like she fully trusted the guy, but, maybe for some reassurance. To make sure he wasn't tricking her, but if he was, then she couldn't really tell since Alix was horrible at reading people. So, closing her eyes. Alix drank the bottle. Her eyes glanced shut as she felt a small tingle down her throat but nothing else.

    To be honest, Alix wasn't sure what she should be expecting. Pain, an unimaginable burning. Something, but, it never happened. She didn't feel anything, so as she opened her eyes. Alix opened her mouth to ask if something was wrong. Only to be surprised by what she had just seen. "Woah! Your eyes! They're a different color!" Alix rushed out, leaning forward a little closer to the King as she took in the color change of the Kings eyes. No longer were they a soft green hazel, instead, they looked like a golden color.

    "Oh, wow." Alix breathed out, as she looked away from the King and looked all around herself. Things were different colors then what they originally were. "This is unbelievable."

    A large smile moved over Kyran face as he saw how amazed Alix was by everything. He was glad he had picked out the right vial for her. Admittedly, it was a bit out there and he had been worried that it would freak her out. But it seemed she was enjoying it quite thoroughly. And, the King did know how to remove the potion if he needed to. She seemed to be enjoying it enough though.

    "It should only last for 5 minutes but it seems that you like it." The King responded. "I suppose it looks very... psychedelic?" He asked, turning his head a bit to the side as he said it. Kyran had seen that word quite a but in one of the ruler's diaries when referring to his own other worldly spouse. Apparently something they said a lot but Kyran wasn't quite sure what it meant.

    He then reached out, taking Alix's hand before leading her up the stairs. This room was actually rather empty. There was a hard metal, closed door bookshelf, a fire pit in the middle and some torches along the side of the wall. "This is where we do a lot of fire practice." Kyran told her. Once they were at the top of the stairs, the King brought down the large metal door that hinged onto the floor, closing it so it closed off the stairs leading down. The stairs leading up also had a door closed over it.

    Unlike the potion room, however, were four little windows that were open and let in a breeze from all four directions. "I can show you some fire magic but you have to promise to keep some space between the two of us and not to move around too much. I can control it but if you walk into it... well it's going to hurt."

    As Alix looked around the room a little bit more, she couldn't help the grin that appeared on her lips. The colors and shades were all different than how she knew they should be. It was unbelievable, mesmerizing. She'd never imagine being able to see things so differently, and in a way, it was opening her eyes more to this world. Things could change, they could be similar to how one usually precevies the world, but, in an instant it can change. Not always for the worst, but some for the better, new expierences.

    Glancing back towards the King Alix couldn't help but to let out a giggle as she shook her head. "Please don't say that again." She told him, giggling a little bit more at the expression on the royal's face. "Although, I suppose that word would explain this." Alix mumbled as she looked around the room. The edges of her lips lifting ever so slightly as she wondered if this was what it was like back in the day of drugs and revolution.

    Looking back towards Kyran, Alix couldn't keep the grin off of her lips as he grabbed her hand and pulled her towards the next level. Her bright blue eyes looked around as she followed him, excitement filling her as she wondered what she could be seeing next. What this world could hold besides amazing potions excited Alix a bit.

    "I'll be good." Alix said as she looked towards Kyran and let his hand go as she hit her hands behind her back. Then, she slowly took a few steps back so that she was pressing her back against the wall. A innocent smile playing with her lips as she looked around the room for a moment. Taking in the tall roof, open windows and how there seemed to be a few old scorch marks on the walls as well. "How long does it take to be able to control fire?" She asked as she glanced back towards the King, then pursed her lips. Not sure if it would be wise to speak to him as he was controlling such a powerful element.

    "To control fire in general or to actually be an expert in it?" Kyran asked, with a bit of a smirk on his face. "It really depends on if you have natural fire abilities or not. People who don't can still learn but it is more difficult. Though, if you are like me, and have to learn every element well... things become a bit easier as you know more and more. Fire is the last one that was taught to me though as it does tend to cause the most damage. But it took me several years to become an expert. Most take longer. Those who are natural at it take less."

    He gave her a bit of a shrug before taking some steps away from her. Kyran made sure that there was plenty of space between himself and Alix. Even if she were to move, he should have enough time to stop what he was doing to make sure she did not get hurt. That would be rather terrible, if she were to walk out of here with burn marks on her body. It was something that could be healed but... Well it would still get around the castle.

    Kryan cleared his throat a bit before moving his hands in front of him. He put the palms of his hands together, laying them out. Soon, a fire was growing from his palms and it was only moments before it was large and raging. Now having enough, Kyran split it up between both of his hands and started to move with it. It looked like Kyran was doing some kind of fire dance but, in reality, he was just doing different moves that caused the fire to change and shift. First, he started out with doing some easy shapes, molding it until it was becoming a large image of an animal in their word, something that looked between a mix of a dragon and a cat.

    Though the images disappeared and the fire started to change color into Kyran's hand to a bright blue and then a white. It grew larger and larger and then, suddenly, it bursted out of his hands and out of the windows. It crackled and bursted into a large fireball, but disintegrated in the air immediately.

    The retorted question surprised Alix and she couldn't help but widen her eyes in surprise. She didn't really thing about that. Was their even such thing as being an expert of an element? She didn't think so, but, then again this was a whole nother world she was in. So she couldn't really argue with its logic.

    Watching as Kyran took a few extra steps away from her, Alix started to grow a bit more nervous. She had no idea what she was expecting. This had got to be one of the most dangerous things that she'll ever witness. At least, so far in her life, she wasn't really a risk taker, preferring to stay on a straight line in life after she watched what happens to those who stray from the path that's most logical.

    "Woah," Alix mumbled as she watched the fire dance and come alive in Kyran's hands. The way he moved and the fire moved with him. How easily he could bend it and how he didn't seem to have a hint of fear in his movements. "Amazing." She breathed out as she watched him create some kind of animal or mythical creature. "Ohh..." She couldn't get past how cool it looked, her eyes were just so entranced by the whole thing and by the time he was changing it to a different color and shooting towards the windows, Alix was lost. She was too amazed, that she was pretty speechless over the whole thing.

    "That was so freaking cool!!" Alix couldn't help but shout as she watched the fireball burst through the window and then disappear all on its own. "That was amazing, Kyran!" Alix exclaimed again, not sure what else she could possibly say at the moment. "The way you created that creature, and could change the light, and then shooting it through the window." She was rambling now. A large goofy grin spreading across her lips as she looked at the King.

    "Are your hands hot from the fire?" She asked, curiosity showing in her tone. "Does it burn you since you're the one handling it?" At this point, Alix would have run up to Kyran to find out the answers for herself, but she didn't know if it was safe yet and thought it'd be best for Kyran to give her the okay or for him to approach her first.

    Kyran gave her a soft smile as he walked up to the excited woman. He held his hands out, showing her that there were no marks on her skin. "It didn't burn me but it could have. It takes a while to learn to be careful, to learn how to make sure the fire doesn't touch your own skin. Beginners are often covered in burn marks but with time, you learn how to keep space between yourself the element that you are working with."

    Reaching out, Kyran pressed his hands against hers. Though they were uninjured, they were quite hot to the touch. "The fire is warm though, so my hands are as well. Those who use fire often put creams on their hands to keep them cool under the heat. I don't since fire is not my go to. It's best for fighting and I am not in that position often."

    Letting go of her, Kyran turned and headed back up to the stairs. He opened the open door, to allow them to get out before opening the top door as well. The King motioned for the girl to follow him before he headed up the stairs to the next training area. As his head popped up, a smile moved over his face. He held his hand out to Alix, waiting for her to take it before bringing her up the rest of the stairs to see.

    At this level, there were more bookshelves again, but they were in doors that were able to close securely with glass casings to see inside. At the center of the room, was a large circular pond with steps leading to the center and a place to stand as well. There was also a large metal chest like thing that, as you neared it, blew cold air at you. "This is water. We like to keep it above the fire just in case something happens." He said with a bit of a chuckle. The windows were the same as below.

    Excitement filled Alix as Kyran seemed to have read her mind. As he approached, she couldn't help but grin excitedly as she listened. Amazed that he wasn't burned or hurt in any sort of way from the fire. "Wow." She breathed out as she felt his hands, flinching at first from the heat from his hands before getting used tot he feeling.

    "That's amazing," Alix said as she looked from Kyan's hands then to his eyes. Then back again before he pulled away to open the next door for them to go through. Grabbing onto the bottom of her dress, Alix tried to move quicker as she followed after Kyran. All of this stuff was so excited to see, and she couldn't wait to see more of what he could be showing her. Although, as they got to the next floor, Alix could feel the consequences of wearing heels starting to affect her as her feet started to hurt going up all of these steps.

    "Wow." The young Princess breathed out as she looked around the beautiful room A small smile of amusement washed over her lips as Kyran said that this room was for water. "Is it as strong as the fire magic then?" She asked as she went to the side of the room, not wanting to get in the King's way.

    "You know, you haven't told me what your main form of magic is." Bright blue eyes looked towards the water that was similar to her eye color. Then, she looked towards Kyran to see what he'd plan to do to show her water magic.

    Kyran let out a hum at her question. Though a bit of a smirk came over his face as he looked back at her. "I haven't told you what my main form of magic is and I do not think I will either." He told her as he headed over to the platform in the middle of the water. "It would be a bit more fun if you guessed once we were at the end of it, don't you think?" He tilted his head a bit as he looked back at her, wondering if Alix would join in on his fun. "Once I show you all four, you can guess and give me your reason why."

    Once in the middle of the circle, Kyran brought his hands up over the water. He raised his hands up slightly, causing the water to rise in a blob from the little pond and up to his hands, and swirling around his fingers. The man shifted his fingers, looking at the water as it continued to surround his skin until it looked like he was wearing gloves. "All magic is equally strong. There is no one that is stronger than the other. There may be people who debate that one is better than the other, but those who do aren't knowledgable in all four. It is just that each element has its own abilities."

    Kyran lifted his hand up again, now the water moving up, creating circles around his head. The man then continued on. "Its own strengths and weakness. Water can be strong, it can cut through rock and quench fire. But it isn't going to do as much damage as fire will. Water is not going to defend you like earth can. But, water can heal. It has the possibility of stopping a mortally fatal wound from killing you if your abilities with water is strong enough."

    The man then moved the water so it was in a bubble in front of Alix. A bit of a smile on his face as he moved it around her body without allowing any of it to touch her. "You can touch it if you would like."

    A look of surprise appeared on Alix's face as she listened to Kyran speak. She wasn't expecting him to be so teasing. He's always seemed to have such an aura around him like he knew that he was something to be prayed. At least, that's what Alix always thought, until now it seemed.

    "Challange accepted, your grace," Alix said as she sent the man a small smile as she crossed her arms behind her back and leaned back against the wall that was behind her. She hung onto every word that left the King's lips. Taking in all of the new knowledge that she was getting and storing it away so that she could possibly use it at another date. Or at least not seem as clueless as she listened in on a conversation that was going on in front of her.

    The way that Kyran so easily molded the water into gloves and raising it above his head really amazed Alix. Her bright blue eyes couldn't help but stare in astonishment. "Wow." She breathed out as she watched, mesmerized with how concentrated the King was with the element.

    Then, as he brought the water towards her, Alix couldn't help but take in a shaky breath. Her eyes shooting towards the King warily, not sure if he was teasing her or not. Although, with his encouragement, she did eventually reach out and touched the water bubble."Woah." She said, a small smile appearing on her lips instead of her worried expression. "It doesn't feel any different than the water in a bath."

    Glancing back towards Kyran, Alix couldn't help but ask, "Can anyone learn magic here?" She had a tad bit of hope in her voice, excitement flashing through her eyes at the possibility of being able to control the water element like how Kyran was doing right now.

    Kryan frowned a little as Alix asked if anyone could learn magic. He slowly brought the water bubbles away from her and moved all of it back to the pond where it was originally. The man understood why she was asking that question, but he didn't want to sound completely discouraging with his answer. Though he was sure that it would sound like it anyways.

    "It is not possible for anyone to learn magic. There are many people here who know none and others who were only able to learn a spell or two. Though there does not seem to be much rhyme or reason on who can and who cannot. It does tend to follow family patterns but not always. Sometimes the best magical families will have children who are unable to learn and vice versa."

    As the man finished speaking, he walked over to Alix and lightly laying his hand on her shoulder. "Furthermore, there are no records of a royal from earth being able to learn... That being said, it is not impossible, just unlikely. But, you may try if you would like. And most potions would be an option for you as most of them don't require magic, just magical ingredients." Kyran paused for a moment before continuing. "I don't want to make it sound like it is impossible but I don't want to lie to you either. It's not likely but if it's something you're interested in, then we can find out."

    With that, Kyran started to lead her up to the next room. He didn't want to focus too long on the negative here, especially since it was seeming that they were having such a good time.

    Well, that kinda put a damper on her mood. Learning magic would have been so fun and Alix would have loved to of been able to learn water or fire, heck she would even enjoy learning ground or whatever the fourth element of magic was. Being able to do so would also probably help her if she ever got in trouble. Not that she expected to of course, but, not being from here Alix had quite a few worries that go through her mind often.

    "Well." Alix started, her voice quiet and the obvious frown that appeared on her lips giving away her discontent. "It could never hurt to try. Besides, maybe the elements they tried to learn, weren't their element. That's why they couldn't learn?" Alix knew she was grasping at straws, but, it couldn't hurt to ask, correct?

    Reaching out, Alix grabbed onto Kyran's hand once more. Alix gave it a slight squeeze as she followed him towards the next floor. "What are you going to show me next?" She asked, wanting to change the subject so that he didn't detect all of the stress that was slowly starting to build inside of Alix.

    It seemed like each step they took in the tall tower, the more Alix wished they had elevators here. The thing felt like it never ended. "I feel like I'm going to need a bath after all this walking," Alix mumbled quietly, not meaning for the King to hear that last sentence. Because if he did, she'd be extremely embarrassed.

    "I don't know much about the training that they went through so that can be a possibility. It is really hard to say, but if you want to learn, we can definitely try a the elements out to see what would be the best fit for you." Kyran looked back at her, a smile coming over his face as he did so. He didn't want to completely crush her spirits. But he also hoped that Alix would know better than to ride all of her hopes on it. Even if she was able to control an element, the King was rather sure she would have a difficult time with even the easiest spells. Quite simply, she wasn't from this world so he had to question how much magical ability Alix was able to have. But it didn't hurt to test it out.

    He glanced back at her, a bit of a chuckle escaping from him. "You can go to your room after I am done showing you around. We should ask someone to draw you a bath as well, so it's ready for you once we get there." Kryan turned back, focusing what was in front of him. "And we are going to do Earth next."

    It took them longer to get onto the next floor than the others. The floor of this one seemed much thicker than the others, and there was a long portion of metal at the bottom of this floor as well. Similar to the fire room, there wasn't much in there. It was mostly empty, but there was a bookshelf, filled with scrolls, books and a few rock slates.

    Though, as they headed further into the room, Kyran stopped and turned, looking at the corner of the room. There was a man standing there, his eyes closed as he slowly raised and sank the floor underneath him with his earth bending abilities. Though, at hearing their voices, the darked haired man opened his eyes and looked to the King and princess before bowing deeply to them both. "King Kryan, Princess Alix. It is a pleasure." The man said before standing back up. He was wearing the noble robes of one of one from their country. His dark hair was medium length, he had a shark jawline and a medium sized nose. Though, the one thing odd about him was his golden eyes.

    "Princess Alix, this is Lasfanda." Kryan said, motioning to the lord. "He is a visiting noble."

    The sense of determination slowly filled Alix as she listened to Kyran. She knew that a lot of what he was saying was to make her feel better, but she appreciated it. She was happy that he didn't just outright tell her no on wanting to learn and that the possibility of being able to do anything would be complete zero.

    "I think asking someone to do that for me is one of the best ideas I've heard all day," Alix mumbled quietly, her feet ached in her heels and she was sure that this was the most cardio that she's ever done. Back on earth, Alix would always lie about not feeling well to get out of the gym. Or, she'd try and play teachers pet so that she could get out of doing anything that required physical movements.

    As Kyran told Alix what element was next, a look of interest appeared on the young girls face. "Can people who know earth magic make gems?" She asked, her bright blue eyes looking up at the man in interest before she lowered her gaze to see the man in the corner.

    Out of instinct, Alix shyly took a small sidestep behind Kyran, seeking a little comfort as she watched the strange man doing magic with his eyes closed. He had to be strong to not have to move a single muscle as he controlled the ground under him. Then, as Kyran started to introduce the man, Alix glanced up at the King before looking at the man once more. Her lips pursing into a thin line as she offered a small nod at the greeting that the man was giving them.

    "Greetings Sir Lasfanda," Alix said quietly as she stepped from behind Kyran for a moment to give the man a small curtsey before she stepped back behind Kyran. In terms of nobility, he was under Alix since he was a noble and she was hailed a Princess when she was brought here. So surely, he wouldn't be to put off that she preferred to stay behind Kyran for protection instead of standing next to the King. Right?

    Lasfanda smiled to the King and the princess as he stood up straight once again. "It is a pleasure to meet you, Princess Alix." The man said before he looked back to Kyran. "Your majesty, if you have a moment, I would like to discuss something with you." He said, his voice was strong, confident and rather low.

    King Kyran looked to Lasfanda, a soft smile on his face. "I afraid that now is not a good time, but come by my office tomorrow after lunch and we can talk then." He said as he moved his hands behind his back, looking to the man curiously.

    "Yes, that would be great, thank you. Though, may I ask how the planning for your crowning is going?" Lasfanda asked. He took a moment to glance over at Alix. It was well known around the castle that Alix was the one who was officially hosting it. Some found it appropriate while others were worried about the Earth girl throwing the celebration. They wondered how much she really knew and understood what was meant to occur.

    "I have been assured that everything will be perfect and spectacular once the day arrives. I believe that you nor others or my people will not be disappointed." Kyran glanced back at Alix for a moment, a larger smile coming along his face. He had faith in her and the advisors that were in charge.

    "Excuse us, Lord Lasfanda, we should be going now." Reaching back, King Kyran moved a hand behind Alix's waist and lead her forward, wanting her to be in front of them while they continued up the stairs.

    With her eyes cast downwards, Alix allowed for Kyran to lead her out of the room and towards the next. The way that Lasfanda looked at her and spoke sent a shiver down her spine. He reminded her of a snake, so nice to look at, but with one wrong move, he could snap at any moment.

    Then, once they were out of the earth room Alix slowed her walking and turned slightly towards Kyran. "Kyran," Alix said quietly as she looked up at the King. Truth be told, this was the closest she's been to him since she's arrived here and that fact caused her cheeks to turn light pink. Who knew he had just amazing hazel eyes? And that scruff that was barely visible unless one was close enough to see the small prickles.

    "Um," Alix mumbled quietly, trying to wheel her mind away from how close they were in the hall that separated the two rooms. "Are you really excited to see how I plan your crowning?" She asked quietly, leaning back slightly which ended up causing her back to press against the wall of the staircase. "What if, what if I mess up? What if what the advisors that are supposed to help me plan everything were all lying the whole time to make me look bad and ruin the party? What if, what if it doesn't live up to your expectations?"

    Shifting her gaze downwards, Alix slowly closed her eyes. Truth be told, she's been working her but off to try and figure out what the hell was supposed to go on during a crowning, as well as make it unique, but everything unique seemed to have been done already. She was stressing and time was running out so fast, she was starting to have really bad anxiety over the whole thing.

    (I forgot she was suppose to be planning his crowning... Oops. )
