    In the Land of Cardiau, there stood four great and powerful kingdoms. Rhawiau [Spades], Calonnau [Hearts], Clybiau [Clubs], and Diemwnt [Diamonds]. They all fairly had an easy going relation between one another. It had been many a long year, and many Kings and Queens had turned the throne over to their heirs. But in this time, there was only One Queen that stood upon the throne of Calonnau, and that was something that couldn't happen! Her aging and crippling father urged her to marry, but she was a stubborn girl, and she sought to make herself known in the Land of Cardiau by herself, and only by herself. She needed no man.
    It soon came the time of her father's passing, and indeed she mourned, but it was very quick, and she soon assumed the tasks of Queen, and made sure the other three kingdoms knew she was on the throne, and oh how she was proud. At least once a week she would send messages to the other three kingdoms herself, talking about alliances and daily news. All would change however, as a dark and ominous cloud crossed the sky on the Day of Harvest.
    It was just before dawn, a glimmer of a beautiful harvest shone on the horizons of the east, Corinne had much luck in the previous years harvest, and she hoped this year it would bare the same news. By this time she would also extend her greetings and welcome the other Royals to her palace for an excellent harvest feast. But of course, she must wait, not everyone got up when the sun rose as she did. Especially not royals. She laughed at the thought of the other Kings and their wives trying to get up and do all the tasks she did in a day, but of course, it was a silly girlish thought. She must move onto more pressing matters.​
    She slipped down the marble staircase and onto the ground floor of the palace, and admired the woven tapestries that hung along the walls besides the windows. Of course, they would never cover the windows, because the light was a precious thing.​
    Corinne gazed out at the window, and furrowed her brows. The sun had not yet risen, and it was surely past the breaking of dawn. She bit her soft pink lip and pulled her silk black hood closer to her face and haste-fully walked out side and stepped into the awaiting carriage, telling the horsemen to go to the nearest kingdom as fast as he could.​
    As she gazed at the window, she watched as a thick black cloud rolled closer to the peaceful land of Cardiau.​

  3. The fog was thick,muffling sound and sight. Where it parted James could see the street rising ahead of him,wet and dark.He could hear the voices of the market sellers and beggers.His father would not have approved him coming down to this part of the kingdom,he could imagine his fathers voice telling him "This part of the Kingdom is no place for the prince". The thought of his father sent shivers down his back,he had always hated him.one day i will be in charge soon and oh how i will change things he thought but it soon left his mind as he saw a ragged woman sitting on the ground a child in her arms as James looked more closely at the child he saw it did not move,he handed the woman some of the coin he had in his pocket then walked off.
     
  4. It was only about fifteen minutes before the next kingdom was in sight. Corinne took a deep breath as her black carriage rolled to a stop in front of the Rhawiau Palace, and she carefully stepped down, and onto the cobblestone that lead up to the two giant doors of the palace. Guards were waiting for her at the doors, and she waved solemnly and they proceeded to let her inside.​
    She unfastened her hood and folded it neatly over her arm, the red heart insignia that was stitched upon it showing loud and proud. She smiled down at this although, the occasion was nothing to be smiling about. A Chancellor came to greet her, smiling thinking she was here to deliver a pleasant invitation. But yet; that was not the case. She sighed and looked down at her beautiful maroon slippers and back up at the Chancellor.​
    "I must speak with the King, there is an urgent matter at hand." She told him her English accent rolling off of her tongue as she spoke. ​
    He nodded in concern and took her to the meeting hall. He knocked upon the wooden doors and opened them when he heard some sort of invitation and she let herself inside.​
