Cinderella Tedromeda

Post by Andie Black on Sun Aug 09, 2015 12:58 pm

One of Andie's favorite chores was to go out into the woods to their little garden and pick herbs for their supper that night. The Missing Princess's Birthday was coming up, and she was mentally making a list of things she would need to build all the flying lanterns that her family would go through. Once at the garden, she knelt in the dirt and started singing quietly to herself as she plucked the herbs.

Ted had never lost hope. His parents had years ago, but Ted hadn't. No matter what his royal guard told him, or his parents, he would still believe his sister was alive. The princess was out there waiting to be rescued. So here he was, a few days before her 18th birthday tracking theouhh the woods hoping to find some clue of her. Not that he really knew what he was looking for. All he remembers being told was she had the brightest blue eyes anyone had ever seen. He had gone further than he ever gone, and he was finding himself quite lost. "Bloody shit." He muttered looking around. He stopped walking and sighed. His brows knitted at the sound of light singing coming to his left. He took a few steps towards it and stumbled through a bush, landing flat on his face. He groaned and rolled on his back. "Of course. I just did that." He sighed craning his neck to see a beautiful young woman. "Please pretend I didn't just do that, M'lady." He mumbled, giving her a sheepish grin as he moved to sit up.

A small scream left Andie's throat as the young man fell in front of her. "I-- I-- I'm sorry," she said, scurrying back. "I. Are you okay?" She stayed back, not quite sure who this strange man was. He was extremely attractive. She blushed at his grin and being called m'lady. "I'm no lady."

Ted brushed his commoner clothes off and tilted his head. "What are you sorry for? You didn't do a thing." He chuckled as he looked back up. "Oh did I frighten you? I'm sorry. I didn't mean to. I'm fine, but are you okay?" He inquired as he stood and moved to wipe off his pants. "Not a lady? You sure seem like one." He mused as he stood up straight. "I'm sorry for scaring you again, miss. I just seemed to be a bit lost and heard you singing. Figured I'd ask where I am."

She shrunk back a bit more as he stood. She hadn't seen many people except for some of the cooks and her sisters and parents. So this man was definitely not what she was used to. "Um. You're near the Black family estate."

Ted watched her curiously. "You don't have to be afraid. I'm not going to hurt you." He said softly as he crossed his arms over his chest and looked around. "The blacks huh?" He muttered scrunching up his nose. "Never really liked those folk. A bit creepy for my taste." He grinned looking to her again. "What's a lady like you doing out here all by herself so close to dusk anyway?"

She couldn't say she didn't disagree. "Yes, sir. The Blacks." She gave a small smile. "This is my garden. I live near here." She believed instinctively that he wasn't going to hurt her. If it had been another man, she wouldn't believe it. "Who are you?"

He smiled. "Please don't call me sir." He asked. He heard the word sir so many times a day it drove him insane. He had a name, and he wanted people to use it. "Ah. Seems like a fun place to live." He grinned as he looked around again. "Oh me? Names Ted. I kind of go out every year looking for the lost princess right before her birthday." He explained as he rubbed the back of his neck.

She blinked. It had been ingrained into her to call other people sir and ma'am. So calling him his name would be strange. "Meda. I'm Meda. It's nice to meet you... Ted." She giggled. "I think the Blacks would have known if the Missing Princess was near their property." Her family was ruthless and they would have given anything to have the Missing Princess under their control.

He watched her again. She really was something different. It was refreshing talking to someone who wasn't kissing up to him. "Meda? What a nice name." He mumbled reaching his hand up and scratching his head. "It's a pleasure to meet you as well." He grinned at her giggle. It was the cutest thing he's ever heard. He rolled his eyes. "They're morons." He muttered. "But I didn't mean to head in this direction. I'm more lost than I thought to be honest." He sighed letting his arms relax at his sides. He looked at her. "Are you going to the princess birthday celebration slash kings ball?" He asked curiously. He was hoping to see her again after today. Get to know her better.

She shook her head. "I'm... Not allowed to go. My mother would never allow it. She already—" She ducked her head in embarrassment. "I can show you back to the road in a bit, but I really have to get these herbs picked for dinner. The consequences aren't something I'd like to experience if I'm late. You can stay here as long as you want. I don't mind."

Ted didn't even try to hide his frown. "Oh." He mumbled looking to the ground and back up at her. "Well you should still come. Sneak out. What your mother doesn't know won't hurt her right?" He offered looking back up at her hopefully. He gave her a soft smile and moved to sit on a fallen log. "I'll wait. If you want me to help just let me know." He offered as he wiped his palms on the top of his trousers.

She shook her head. "No, the King, Queen, and Prince would appreciate a mere servant like me showing up in my best." Which, compared to Narcissa and Bellatrix's best, Andie's best was nothing. "Are you going to be at the balls?" She smiled at him and returned to picking the herbs she needed. "Those are extremely nice clothes," she murmured. She wondered who he was.

Ted snorted. "This week of festive's isn't for just royalty. It's for everyone to come together and remember the lost princess, and hope she returns one day." He explained as he leaned forward with his elbows on his thighs. He watched her a bit and tilted his head. "Yeah I am." He nodded. Only because it's partially for me, he thought. He looked down at his clothing and shrugged. "They're just normal clothes. Well for me anyway." He said looking back up at her. "I still think you should come to the ball."

Andie smiled softly. "I know it is. My mother doesn't see it that way. So I don't go. For what it's worth, I set off a lantern for her too." She nodded. "I heard a rumor the Prince is going to find a wife during the balls. Do you know if that's true?" She hummed. She had fixed clothes like that on a near daily basis. "I will try. But I might not be able to."

"No offense but your mother sounds like she needs a lesson in manners and better parenting." He muttered as he shook his head. A smile took over his face. "I'm sure the princess, wherever she is, appreciates that. As well as the royal family." He offered as he continued to watch her. Something about this simple girl captivated him and he was confused by it. "It's not a rumor. It's half a celebration for the princess, half a ball to find the prince a wife." He sighed holding back the urge to roll his eyes. He hated how his father thought it was time he marry. He grinned. "Great, hopefully you can make it. Then I'll have one person there I can stand to be around."

She giggled. "She's not that bad. She's as good a parent as she could be." Someone just needed to take care of the family, and it just managed to fall on Andie's shoulders. "Oh, I thought so. My sister was talking about it the other day." She offered Ted a small smile. "If you want to help, could you gather the rosemary over there." She continued plucking at the fhyme. "What do you do?"

Ted merely hummed, and pursed his lip. He didn't quite believe her statement about her mother but he decided to leave it alone. He didn't want to cause a fight. "Yeah it's why the festival is a week long instead of just two days." He explained with a light shrug. "Sure." He smiled standing up and moving over to a patch of plants. He knelt down and began picking at them. "Well I'm being trained to take over the family business." It wasn't a complete lie. He just didn't want to tell her he was the prince and ruin the only normal conversation he's ever had.

She nodded in understanding. "That sounds like sound reasoning. Though if I were in the Prince's position, I don't think that I would want to choose a husband at a week's worth of balls." She smiled. "Oh that sounds like it's fun. Taking over the family business." It was what her older sister was going to do.

He nodded. That's how he felt. Being the prince and all he didn't understand why he had to choose some girl to wed in such a short period of time. "Neither would I. Choosing a wife in only a weeks time seems like it'll be tough. The only cool thing about this year is I heard the royal family is letting a lantern go each night, and on the last night is the normal ceremony for the princess." He explained. He tried to give her his best smile back. If only she knew. "Yeah. It's really hard and something I've been expected to do my whole life but I have to admit I'm scared to take over." He said softly as he finished picking the rosemary and moved to put it into her basket.

Their hands brushed as she deposited the thyme she was picking into the basket. She jumped at the contact. It had been a long time since anyone had touched her besides to beat her for not doing her chores properly. She had almost forgotten what casual contact felt like. She gave him a small smile. "I'm sure you'll be brilliant at your family's business. I know we just met, but you seem kind and level headed. I can't help but think that it will help you in your endeavor."

Ted tried to ignore the fact their hands had touched, but he couldn't ignore the way she jumped when it happened. It made him wonder what she really went through during her time at home. He may not be a normal town person but he knew people ddint react like that over a little touch. He didn't speak of it though. "I hope so. I really don't want to disappoint my family." He sighed as he moved back to the log and sat down. He watched as the sun began to set behind the woodline. He had to get back to the castle soon for dinner or his parents would kill him for wandering out unprotected.

She smiled as she stood. She gathered the basket. "Come on. I'll show you to the road. Once there, it's not terribly far to town or wherever you're going." She figured he was a merchant's son, given how he was dressed and how he spoke. "I don't believe you will. You'll succeed in whatever task is put ahead of you."

He stood as well and wiped his clothes off again. "Thank you for this. The last thing I need is to be lost in the woods." He chuckled as he crossed his arms over his chest. He shrugged and looked around the woods again. If she didn't show to the ball he would surely try and remember how he got here so he could see her again. "I hope so." He sighed as he shifted to follow her.

She gave him a shy smile, tucking some of her hair that had fallen out of her braid behind her ear. "You're welcome. I grew up in these woods. I know them better than any other in this area. You won't get lost with me here." She started walking. "What makes you so sure you won't live up to expectations?" she asked, stepping over a log.
