Mirabella Charleson Name: Mirabella Charleston Age: 18 Role: Princess Talents: Music and Dance Appearance: « » • • Tab 1 Tab 2 Other: Her father wishes for her to get married very soon, but she wants to get married to someone for love, not simply because her father wants to see her married. And so, her father has arranged for a festival within the kingdom, and during the three nights of the festival, there is going to be a ball. If in those three nights she can't find someone to wed, her father will pick someone for her. This leaves her stressed for time and hoping she will find someone she could see herself marrying. "Mirabella. You are to listen to me! I am your father as well as king of this kingdom! And what I say goes!" The young woman that stood before the king crossed her arms over her chest in annoyance, tilting her head to the side, "But father, what you are saying sounds completely absurd. Only three simple balls to find a husband? That isn't at all enough time to--" "Time?! Time?! Mirabella you've had time! I told you to begin your search for a husband over two years ago! I am not getting any older and I would like to see you become Queen before I am to pass! And for that to happen, you need a King! You will find a husband before the end of the third ball or I will choose one for you! And that is final!" The red faced king said with a click of his staff against the floor as he sat upon his throne. The princess opened her mouth to speak her position on the matter once more, but shut it right after with one stern look from her father. She huffed, the puff of air blowing some of her dark hair from her face, and then turned, stalking out of the throne room, racking her brain all the while of how to turn this whole situation around, though at the moment there didn't seem to be any options in sight or in mind. She walked gracefully though the halls of the castle, up toward her room in one of the towers, where she closed herself in, pacing back and forth. None of this seemed fair to her, that she should be forced to make a decision on who to marry so quickly. And if she didn't find anyone, her father would choose for her and then she would surely be miserable for the rest of her life. She let out a sigh and sat on her window sill, opening it up and looking down at the town below. As she sat there, a little red bird landed beside her, making her smile. This little bird she had, just a few weeks ago, released after nursing its broken wing and it had visited her often since. She ran a gentle finger over its feathers, looking out onto the nearby village her castle overlooked, "Look at it all little one. So many people down there." She smiled to the bird as he moved to her shoulder, "I bet they don't have to choose who they have to marry in such little time. I bet there's no such rush for them at all." She let out another soft sigh, "What I wouldn't give to be in their shoes for one moment." After saying that, there was a momentary pause and she sat up a little in thought, "Maybe...I can. Well, just for a little while." She said with a laugh and then saying goodbye to her little bird friend, rushing off out of her room to go find her handmaid. It wasn't long before she had changed into one of her maid's dresses, smiling to herself, though her maid didn't seem too pleased with this, "Princess, don't you think this is an awful idea? Going out there, without guards to protect you. What if something were to happen to you? What if you got lost? Or injured?" Mira smiled at the woman, "Relax, it's just for a few hours, just to clear my head and have some fun. In these clothes no one will have a clue who I am and I can see the village first hand. I think it's a brilliant idea, not awful." She grabbed her coin pouch, which held just a bit of money just in case, and put it into her dress pocket, along with a little pocket watch so she woudl be able to know what time it was and when to head back, "I won't be gone long. Just don't let my father know. I'll be back soon." And with that, ignoring any words from the woman trying to convince her other wise, she left, heading into the village with a bright smile on her face, looking through the windows in the shop and browsing about curiously, having a good time in seeing what the commoners of her kingdom did on a daily basis.
