He rather liked it when she smiled. It was very pretty and to tell the truth it suited her. So In turn that made him smile and pull her a bit closer to himself. As they walked inside the grandness of the castle opened up before them. The floors were made of granite and in some rooms oak wood. The walls were carved out in smooth, elegant stone. There was lavish paintings on the walls and every so often a statue. Most of were famous statues but others were of Angels and head shots of decendant's before Alexzander. His whole life he had rather enjoyed the castle, always appricating it's grand halls and furnishings. He had learned from an early age...and plenty of discepline that everything about and in this castle was to be treated with the utmost respect. That things were to be used in their proper manner and not in some childish game. Alexzander's mother had taught him that toys were for playing with and that rough housing inside the castle earned him many hours of study time...by himself. That was how he came to love reading. Often times he would finish a few hours early and would be stuck in the library to read by himself. Soon books became less of a chore and more of a past time. Alexzander snapped back into attention as they stopped briefly. She pulled out a book from the bag she carried with her. It was an old faded thing but it appeared to have aged and faded gracefully...with love and it's owners frequent reading of it. Something about that changed his smile from happy to warm. It was good to see that something that so deserved respect finally recieved it. Then she spoke, telling him that she always had a book on her and it was unladylike. That she would love to see the library but would have to reject his invitation. He chuckled as she said he might find her in there longer after she had claimed to leave. The prince stopped in his tracks and looked at her a bit in disbelief. Books being hard to come by? Usually they cost a bit but here it was a resource that was plentiful. She shrugged and suggested he must know something else to do in the kingdom or castle. Then he looked her in the eyes, a bit of a disapproving frown on his lips. "Tsk, Tsk Princess...That won't do. Books in short supply? That won't do. A reader must simply have enough material to read on hand. Let me take you...I am afraid I must insist. Besides...finding a lady such as yourself in the library longer after your departure date dose not seem like such a bad thing to me. I think Ian would rather like that too. I would say he wouldn't admit it though but he would..." He chuckled and began walking again, taking her towards the library. They walked down a short corridor before stopping in front of two large wooden doors. Alexzander pushed open the doors with his free hand, the library unfolding before them. It was a huge room that was three stories high and a ladder going even higher to acsess books at a higher level. Each level comprised of ten to twenty long bookcases stacked on top of eachother. Every inch of the massive library's bookcases were full of books. Stacks of books were placed on sturdy Cedar desks all around the library, for there was no room on the shelves for them. He shut the doors behind them and turned to her. "So...What do you think? Feel free to look about...and if you find anything intresting let me know...or Ian." Out of the corner of his eye he saw Ian approach the two. His shoulder blade length hair was neatly but loosely tied back. Ian was a servent in the household but yet was dressed much like royalty. Alexzander watched as Ian stopped next to her. The servent smiled charmingly as his deep blue eyes met with hers before moving over to Alexzander's gaze. He didn't bow to the prince but just spoke, his voice a light baritone, warm and friendly. "Prince, I am afraid that I have not met our guest...Would you do me the honor of introducing her?" He chuckled and nodded, motioning to Sayomi. "Ian...This is Princess Sayomi from Cassinia...Princess this is my Attendant Ian." Ian looked back to her and gave an elegant bow. For a servant this man was rather suave and charming. He spoke to her before motioning to the rest of the library. "M'ladyship...If there is anything I can help you with please do let me know and I will do my best to make sure your needs are met. Feel free to explore." With that he let go of her arm so she could explore the place as she pleased.
