"M'lady! M'lady!" The maid said as she shook my shoulder to wake me up.
"Lady Angel! Lady, Lady!" I yawned and sat up, "What's wrong Rosa it's too early."
"Your father wants to see you in the courtroom right now," Rosa said panic in her pretty sky blue eyes. "You don't think he found out do you?" she said worriedly running her hand through her curly light brown hair.
I smiled softly and reaching up I placed a hand on her cheek rubbing the smooth tan skin with my thumb, "Aww sweetheart I don't think he found out, fathers clueless."
She blushed under my sweet gaze and nodded, the panic fading away from her eyes. I slipped my legs out from out beneath the silk comforter and stood up my lace nightgown falling down to my knees. I brushed my long raven hair out of my face and walked over to my changing curtain and teasingly peeked out from behind it, "Mind sending in the dressing maids or...shall father have to wait a bit longer for me?"
Rosa's blush spread across her face and she walked toward me slowly then stopped, "No we shouldn't keep the king waiting." I smile sweetly and wave goodbye to her as she hurried to the door and out it. I watch as her slim frame is replaced by three sorta chunky frames of my older dressing maids as they scurried inside my room and made their way over to me.
"So what would you like to wair today Lady?" The oldest one said her wrinkles widening as she smiled softly at me. I grinned back at her and the other two, "The armoured silver one please Ninny and Nanny could you put up my hair in the gold plated dragon scales?"
"Of course Lady." The women said nodding at me and moving to get what I had asked for, "Oh and Namaw Dragon scale makeup please."
"I thought so Lady." The last woman nodded and turned away to gather the makeup she needed. I slipped back behind the dressing curtains and slipped off my nightgown, tossing it over the top of the curtains. I grabbed the silk under clothing and pulled them on. Then I looked up to see the silver top of my dress, the dress I called The Dragon Empress dress, and slipped it on then stepped out so that Ninny could lace me up and put the Dragon Empress armour on.
As the Dragon Empress armour settled on my shoulders my door burst open and a guard runs in, "Lady there is a skirmish at the edge of town and you are needed as soon as possible." He said bowing low, fist over his heart and eyes looking down.
"Alright, I'll be there right after I clear things up with the King." I said as Ninny finished attaching the armour to my dress. I sat down in a chair as Nanny took a brush and untangled my hair then let it drop to its full length, the tips reaching right above my kneecap. Then she pulled my hair up into a high ponytail incasing it in a golden dragon scaled wing clasp. While she did my hair Namaw did my makeup, colouring golden dragon wings on my eyelids and detailing them with a flame-coloured paint. Last of all I strapped on my daggers on my forearms and thighs.
I turned and walked out of my room with the guard in toe down to where my father, the king, waited for me.
