I came into this world... screaming.
As most little babies did I suppose, the wet nurse said I screamed and cried so loudly knowone in the dreadfort needed to be told I was born, they all knew within moments that the child had arrived. My father took one look at me and simply said.
"Keep her skinny and pretty, maybe we can wed her off to someone useful"
And then he left.
My father never said much to me really as I child he was away alot and very busy when he was home my mother passed away when I was young, so much I don't really remember her very well, I remember her pretty hair as she would always let me braid it for her. After my mother passed with my father away do much I learnt to occupy myself with books and such learning all the houses and sigils starting at ones close enough I could point them out to the guards on the walls and eventually spreading out to the rest of the map too, the only person who ever really spent time with me was my bastard older brother Ramsey
"That way is winterfell" I answer pointing off the tower roof
"Very good y/n, now which way to the wall?" He asked so I checked my maps
"That way!" I smile pointing north
"Very good," he laughed
"A hard one! a hard one!" I giggled
"Hard? Where is greywater?" he says
"Greywater?... I don't have that on my map" I sigh
"Then guess" he shrugs
"That way?" I ask pointing north
"No little lady" he says picking me up holding my legs and dangling me over the wall I screamed shutting my eyes scared of him dropping me down the tower as I would surely die "you have to learn your places better" he laughs holding only one of my ankles
"Ramsey! That's enough! I can't hear myself think with her screaming!" My father yelled from the window below me so he put me back
"Where is it anyways?" I ask
"Knowone knows, it moves" he laughs
"You tricked me!" I complain
"You should have known that little lady" he laughs going to do other things so I followed him around I learnt a great deal of knowledge of anatomy from my big brother and his guests "remember you never want to flay from the neck down you always want to go from ankles and wrists in" he explained
"Please sir! Let me go!" The man screamed
"Quiet! Your helping the little lady's lessons" he says to him tapping his skin with a knife "now if you want to keep them alive when you do this they need to bite on something" he explained "and even if it's on our banners never upside down not if you want them Alive" he explained and I nodded.
"Come along y/n!" My father ordered we where on our way to see my betrothel as he had ran off to the wall to join the nights watch, my father didn't approve as he was betrothal and so we where rushing off to the wall to stop him before he could take his vows, so I kicked my horse trying to make it speed up to catch up to my father "I shall see you when I return" he nodded to my brother
"Course, I'm sure I will see you again y/n" he smiles giving my cheek a kiss and going off in another direction he had other business I didn't know what I waved him goodbye and continued on with my father.
I sat humming my little tune trying to avoid the eyes of nights Watchmen knowing they have all taken vows but looked at me as if they hadn't I understand I suppose they don't get many lady's around here, till at last the lord commander brought though the boy and my father and I stood
"I'm sorry my lord Bolton, the boy said his vows this morning he is a brother of he nights watch" he explained
"But he ran off on a betrothal to my daughter" my father spitted
"Be that as it may but he's a brother now" he said
"Alright, but before we leave you apologize for abandoning my daughter" my father told the boy and he nodded coming close to me
"I I'm sorry, my lady. I just... Honestly, I didn't want to marry you" he said to me "nothing against you personally, well... I had heard some things- anyway I am very sorry" he explained do I nodded almost in tears we left quickly going back on the road for s while, I stopped for a moment tied getting down from my horse to sit under a tree I would get back in line at the back after I sit for a moment.
Somehow I must have fallen asleep I expected the group that have stopped when they noticed asleep but they where all gone. Everyone they had left me and I didn't know my way home.
