Sitting in her room, looking herself over in the mirror . She had didn't think that she was bad looking. But no matter what she thought, she was not meant to ever marry. Once her brother died, her father made her take his place. No one even noticed when she was gone. Her father and his father, and his fathers' father has been the protector of the prince or princess. He wouldn't accept fate, and twisted it himself. She was taught and within months, took her brothers place in the training to become a knight. It didn't take Sayomi long before she moved through the ranks, and soon was the youngest person to ever guard the prince. It was a surprise to her, when she was finally sent to the castle to start the rest of her life, that the prince was actually close to her own age. She had thought that he was much younger. After so long, she shook her head out of thought. She stood up and made sure that she was bound tight enough that nothing showed. After a bit of adjusting, she nodded her head happy with how it looked. She put on her armor and helmet. She looked at her lips, and had to dab on purple lipstick on to make her lips less pink. They were a deep shade of pink, almost perfectly shapped, and full. She was always 'teased' by the other guards and knights because of her 'girly' featured. She would just laugh. She checked again, then grabbed her sword and ran down to the kitchen, grabbed some bread, and then went and stood outside of the princes' room, munching on the bread. The prince was either just getting up, or fully dressed. He seemed to vary on when he would get up.
