Hidden Valor

Duchess Arabella leaves the House of Wellington for the king's court without notice or permission of her mother and father. Two murders occur in the royal palace. Duke Everett is accused amongst the courtiers. He pursues the duchess to take her hand in marriage. The Crown sequesters all of the king's court to the royal grounds. The duke and duchess fall in love and are the first to be exonerated. They leave for the House of Carrington, only for the Crown to summon Duke Everett to serve as advisor. A third murder happens. The primary witness is Duke Everett's unknown cousin. The duke seeks to advise the crown to finally resolve all the murders so that he and Arabella may be free to wed and remain as honourable members of the king's court. 

❤️Sweet Romance

            The crystals clanked from the slight breeze seeping through her open window. As one touched another, their light reached her dampened, olive skin. She was bare, exposed to the king's court as an innocent, but presented as a disobedient child. Marriage could be the only manner in which she could reconcile her hasty actions. A marriage to a respectable noble was the minimum status she had to advocate for. The duke was just in his assumption. They had to protect the Crown's declaration of their presumed innocence. She was ready to get prepared as she exited the basin. A couple of the chandelier pieces loosened and descended, clashing against the hard surface. Their ground shards dispersing in whatever nearest direction their weight foretold of. Arabella stepped back and quickly adorned herself with an under gown and robe. She waited for any of the other crystals to seek her flesh, but no other broke free.


The duchess ran to the shared area, heartily knocking on the duke's interior door. He heard the clashes and was already standing on the other side. "What has happened to your quarters already!" He pulled her into his bedchambers by the nearest arm. Arabella clutched the vertical seams of her trailing robe.

"Take a seat, duchess. It could be unstable, old, and ragged from time. This palace is several centuries in age." Everett studied Arabella who still was modest despite her frantic state. He placed a throw over her lap. "We must be thankful that none beyond these walls have heard it. Too much commotion, even accidental would likely not bode well with the Crown."

"I was in the bath when it appeared some of the crystals from the chandelier loosened."  She shook her head in disbelief and stared at the floor. "I heard no trampling above or in the corridor immediately beyond my chambers."

"No fault lies with me..." Her large eyes reached from comfort in the duke's. "You believe this was all indeed incidental?"


"My dear Arabella, no one could possibly-maybe I should be accurate in my speech. It is highly unlikely that one could reach this drastic height to-" Arabella felt no more reassured. Everett leaned over her. "We will tidy up in there. No one will know and then call upon a chambermaid to help you get dressed."
