Orb's Year 905
Aragon remained calm. "In time, dear child, I believe you will understand it is in your best interest. Soon you will be a woman and you will have a need of a husband."
"But why can't I choose?!"
Aragon shook his head, "That's not the way it works. Marriages have been arranged for many years... why even the King's marriage was arranged!"
Breena pouted, "You're just doing this to send me away! You want to enjoy your new family! I'm nothing more than your old family!"
Aragon pulled his eldest to him in a tight hug, "Never! I want to see you settled and taken care of before I am gone from this world. Arthur will be your guardian for now, and then later, when you are a woman, he will be your husband."
Tears sprang to Breena's eyes. She still felt as though she was being punished and shoved away from her family. "Will you visit me?" she asked softly.
"Every day if you want me to," Aragon promised.
