Religious Reign

Post by xenolion on 15th September 2012, 10:38 am

First topic message reminder :

Hialeah wakes up as the sunlight filters her room. She rises from her bed and gets ready for the day. Dressed in her robes she goes to the chapel and sets it up for the daily services. “Good morning Father,” She bows politely greeting the priest as he walks in. She is just setting up the candles.

“Good morning Lady Hialeah, I hope Sagia blessed your sleep.” The priest responds placing the book on the altar.

“I slept well, thank you Father, may Sagia bless you.” Hialeah replies as the finishes up. She bows in front of the altar and to the priest before leaving the chapel. Her next destination is the chapel gardens. What started off as a simple plot to keep Hialeah busy as a child, has grown to a full scale garden. The priests encouraged Hialeah’s green thumb and because of her the fruits and vegetables produced by the chapel are known throughout the city.

Hialeah sings as she tends her gardens. Her beautiful mezzo-soprano voice drifts through the gardens. The priests do not push for her to be in the church choir though. It is like they do not want her to perform in front of anyone. It is a beautiful sunny morning as the works on pulling the weeds and watering the gardens.

Lord Aldain shakes his head. "Madam, I do not know what I have done to offend you, but I have never claimed to know you. I would ask that you try to understand--"

"Don't bother, Milord." Nisa interrupts. "When my sister decides to judge someone, it is final, whether she knows you or not. I will take a walk, but it will be with Lord Aldain and not you, sister. I love you, but I'm not in the mood for your attitude. I'd rather have pleasant company."

Lord Aldain looks regretful. "I do not think that is best. I would like that you walk with your sister--"

"No." Nisa says. "It is fine if you will not walk with me, my Lord, but I will not be walking with Maria. I am tired and I need a break, so I shall find my own way."

With that, Nisa storms out and Lord Aldain looks sad. He stands there awkwardly, watching Nisa's exit with a bit of concern. Lord Aldain then eventually turns to leave, but stops himself.

"Milady." Lord Aldain says to Maria. "I am sure that you understand that you will not be seeing me again after this performance and celebration. I will not be a threat to you or your family, if I have any say in that matter--of that you can be assured. Many apologies for offending you."

Hialeah releases the hug. “The Grand Theatre is beautiful too, and Lord Aldain was so gracious.”

The Cardinal raises his eyebrow. “Oh he was there. Tell me Hialeah, what do you think of the good Lord?”

“He is very handsome and so courteous. He is not at all arrogant like some of the other higher class people I met.” Hialeah smiles and blushes slightly as she thinks of him. “The sisters also invited me to perform a song with them. I really cannot wait for tonight.”

Cardinal Geoffrey nods at her noting her slight blush. “Well I am happy to hear that you had fun and that Lord Aldain made such an impression on you.” He notices the necklace on her necklace neck. “Where did you get that beautiful necklace?”

Hialeah puts her hand on the pendant and looks away. “Prince Kevin was waiting for me when I left the Theatre. I tried to resist, I really did, but he gave it it me anyway.”

Cardinal Geoffrey reaches over and remove the necklace. He places it in her hands and lifts her chin. “Don't worry Hialeah, but you cannot wear this with the dress. Why don't you get ready, there isn't much time before we need to get going.”

Hialeah bows to Cardinal Geoffrey then returns to her room. She is so excited she practically dances there.

Maria narrows her eyes at Aldain. "I doubt that I have seen or heard the last of you sir. However if I could take your word as honor then I would. I must go find my sister, she is more important to me then you are."

With that Maria walks past him following her sister. "Nisa wait for me!" she said as she tried to keep up. She began to run after Nisa to see if she could catch up with her.

"Don't be so angry with me Nisa. You know how I am when I get that way."

Nisa makes a pouty expression, scowling with crossed arms. She looks over at her sister briefly before her eyes return back to the path before her. She is surprised when she returns to see the main room fully decorated and lit--something that shouldn't have happened in such a short time. It looks absolutely marvelous.

"We have to be patient." Nisa finally says, "We have to be patient. If we rush into these thing, we could push her away, instead of bringing her into our life. We have to be kind to those that she loves and respects. We have to be forgiving of her ignorance. Otherwise, she'll see us for who we are far too soon and be ashamed of her family, rather than proud. Is that what you want?"

"No it isn't Nisa. I want her to be accepting and proud to be of our family, but at the same time there has to be an understanding. I don't know what you saw in that man, but I could see right through him." she said as they returned to the main stage.

It was fully decorated and fully lit now. Maria was surprised sense when she had left all the lights had went out. There was defiantly something about this place that gave her the creeps. Had Lord Aldain been in charge of the theater when they were last here? She could not remember him at all.

"Look Nisa, it is completely alive in here now. When I left earlier it was darker then the inside of a crypt. Now don't you find that interesting?" she asked.

Nisa nods her head with understanding. "Honestly, I do not care what it is you're seeing 'through him.' Frankly, I don't mind the occasional flirt, because it's not like I could ever be with him, anyways. I'm just a commoner, he's a Lord, but I will respect him while here in his theater, for Hialeah's sake."

She giggles a little, placing her arm around her sister's in a silly way, trying to tell her to relax. After all, they didn't have time for any added stress--these things had to work out gracefully.

Nisa replies to her question with a shrug. "I guess...? What could have done it? Workers or black magic? I'd vote for workers. They were outside earlier, if you'll recall."

Hialeah returns to her room putting the necklace on the dresser. She looks at her dress and touches it gently. There is a knock on her door. It is one of the other Priestess in training, Sophia. She has come to do Hialeah's hair, and to get her ready. “You are so lucky Hialeah, Sagia is blessing you for all the hard work you have done.”

“It certainly feels like that, but I really haven't done much. I cannot wait to see what my church will look like.” Hialeah tells Sophia while putting the dress on. She sits down in the chair as Sophia does her hair. Hialeah sits patiently as Sophia braids her hair.

The Cardinal prepares himself too. They have a special surprise for her on her birthday. He only hopes she will like it. He puts on his ceremonial robes and goes down to her room. He waits outside until she is finished.

Hialeah's hair.

Maria shrugs her shoulder. “Who knows Nisa. I am done with it for now. Let us just be happy with what we have in front of us. Enjoy your flirt, but beware the pointy teeth.” She said.

They danced down to the stage and as they moved around gracefully dancing with one another, Maria could not help but look at everything that was laid out. “It all looks so wonderful Nisa! Look, these are beautiful props. I love them dearly, and look at all the food! I bet it tastes divine. Seeing things like this sometimes makes me wonder if the goddess is for real at times.” She stated.

Sophia finishes up with Hialeah and exits the room, bowing at Cardinal Geoffrey. He takes the opportunity to knock on the door. He waits for Hialeah to grant him entry before entering. “Wow you look beautiful. Are you ready for the celebration? I will be more than happy to escort you there.” He offers her his arm.

“I would be delighted. I must admit I am a little nervous. The sisters want me to perform with them on stage. It will be good for when I am in front of the people.” Hialeah admits to him as she takes his arm. They walk to the Grand Theatre. Hialeah gasps upon arriving. It looks even more astute when all light up.

An usher greet them and escorts them to a table that is set up for them. It is in the front and center of the room. “Congratulations and happy birthday Priestess Hialeah, may Sagia watch over you in the upcoming year.”

She looks around the circular table and sees the Pope's name on a card. The Cardinal is seated to his right and Lord Aldain to his left. Hialeah finally sees her name next to Lord Aldain. She wonders where the sisters will seated. She doesn't have a chance to look as Cardinal Geoffrey is pulling out her chair. She cannot help but feel intimidated with the powerful people she is sharing a table with.

Nisa finds her way to the celebration, quick to ask if they will be dining or performing first. After a quick glance over, she sees that their names are also added to the notes placed at each plate. She pales to see that Maria is placed right next to Lord Aldain, which makes absolutely no sense at all-why would would they put a commoner artist next to a Lord?

Nisa finds that she is placed by herself at the end of the table, near a bunch of strangers. The man whom she asked had informed her that they are to eat first and then perform after an important announcement. Sounds good to her--she could really go for some food, at this point. Nisa is famished.

She makes her way to her chair and waits for everyone to arrive so that the Pope can begin their meal with prayer. Yay for prayer. One part she definitely did not look forward to in this part of dining. She looks down jealously towards her sisters, seeing that they are both far closer to the handsome Lord. Such a shame, but that's the way it is, she supposes.

Maria is walking with Nisa and notices the name plates. Her heart drops when she sees that she is placed on one side of Lord Adain. She sighs and looks at Nisa.

"Please trade with me?" she asked. Though it doesn't matter, Nisa is no longer by her side and has taken her place at the end of the table. Maria goes over none to happy and walks over to her place. She sits down as people begin to filter in. She can see important religious figures as well as political figures beginning to float in. She takes her seat and as Lord Adain and everyone come in and take their seats she can only shake her head. She grits her teeth unable to say anything.

When everyone is in they sit there and say a prayer. Hell it felt like a long assed prayer. Maria only looks around the room and watches the peoples faces as they pray. She crosses her arms and sits back in her chair till the prayer is done.

As soon as the prayer is done, the room is alive with servants bringing food out. Maria never says a word as she eats in silent anger. She does her best to keep out of Lord Aldian's way and to not say a word to him. Why they would place her beside him she will never know. She waits for dinner to be done so the announcements can be made.

Hialeah bows her head for prayer. The pope is an eloquent and devout speaker. After he finishes the meal begins. Hialeah looks at Nisa and Maria, both girls look as uncomfortable as she. Hialeah cannot believe she is sitting at the same table as the Pope and Lord Aldain. Her heart races as she looks at Lord Aldain. She is polite and concise with her answers whenever asked questions.

The dinner goes along too quickly. After the desserts are served and consumed, the Pope stands. He goes to the stage. The soft chatter ceases as he approaches the middle of the stage. “Today we celebrate the accomplishments of a wonderful young woman. Hialeah Makua, please join me up here.” Hialeah looks at Cardinal Geoffrey as she stands. She quickly walks next to the Pope. “Hialeah has been a devout child of Sagia since she was brought into the temple. She has been studying under the Priests and Priestesses and now has been blessed with a church of her own. It has been brought to my attention that today is also her birthday. Hialeah my child, I do have a gift for you. This celebration is also an engagement party. Hialeah, I would like to officially announce your betrothal to Lord Venlian Aldain.” He holds out his hand and motions for the Lord to join them on stage.

Hialeah's mouth drops her eyes briefly meet Kevin's. His face turns to a scowl. He subtly glares at both the pope and Lord Aldain. She smiles at Lord Aldain stands to join her on the stage. She resigns herself to the engagement, knowing her life was never her own. She is a servant of Sagia. If She desires Hialeah to be married to Lord Aldain, then Hialeah will do it. She blushes slightly as she watches Lord Aldain. He is so handsome and she is so lucky.

As the announcement is made, Lord Aldian's jaw drops, his eyes wide and brows furrowed with confusion. His right hand moves to his chest, shock quite clear has he slowly stands with hesitation. He mumbles something quickly before moving forward:

"This isn't right. I am not a member of the Church." Lord Aldian moves up to the stage as he is bid, a smile finally rising on his face, though it is clearly nervous, rather than sincere. The Pope places his hand on hers and he grasps it with a cold touch as his eyes move first to hers and then to his.

Nisa's heart breaks. Sure, she knew she'd never have the guy, but ouch. He is obviously surprised by this, just as much as she. When it is revealed, her hand goes to her mouth, covering her lips with astonishment. She isn't sure what to say or think...but, then again, who would care what she thought or said, anyways? Will Hialeah be okay with this? Does she truly want to be married so soon to some random Lord? Will this upset her on the inside? Or is she going to be as accepting as they raised and brainwashed her to be?

She forces her eyes from the charming, handsome Lord, pushing her gaze to Maria's location. She tries to focus on the one thing she has left, fear gripping at her heart as she wonders how much farther her sister might be torn from her at this development. Her fists clench in rage under the table as a congratulatory smile rises upon hr face to greet her sister. Her eyes move to that of Hialeah as she begins to clap with the others.

Sure the Lord will not take her away from them? He knows that they are sisters, indeed...figured it out all on his own...so he mustn't do that to them. He is too kind.

Maria’s eyes opened and she stood up. “NO!!” was all she could say. She looked up angrily at first Nisa and then the pope. How dare the so called goddess take what she had searched her whole life for. Her own flesh and blood that was taken from her and she had never known till now. What made it so bad was that the man she was marrying KNEW she had sisters.

Maria felt herself fuming on the inside. She balled her hands into fists and slammed them into the table. Before she could say another word, Kevin had come up behind her and put his hand over her mouth. “Shut up!!” he hissed.

A few eyes and whispers had turned their way, but Kevin had managed to shut Maria before anything else was said out of her mouth. “I will kill them…I will kill them all for taking what I have searched for.” She said with tears in her eyes. She is so angry that all she wants to scream. She grits her teeth as she looks for Nisa in the crowd.

Hialeah looks up at Lord Aldain. Her heart is racing for a variety of reasons. Her head is full of questions. Why ordain her as a priestess, just to marry her off. Is this something that has been in the works for a while or is this because of Kevin? She studies the Lord's expression, and he seems surprised too. She finally looks at the others hearing their applause. It appears the others are pleased about this. However she thinks she can hear at least one protest. She does not dare look in Kevin's direction as she turns to the people. A grateful smile appears on her face, she only hopes it looks genuine.

“Congratulations, Hialeah and Lord Aldain, may your union be long and filled with Sagia's blessings.” The Pope announces. “Now let the entertainment begin.” He escorts Hialeah and Lord Aldain back to their seats.

Hialeah studies Lord Aldain as they return to their seats. What kind of man is he? Can she truly make him happy? How does he feel about this? What is going to become of her Priestesshood? Will Lord Aldain be alright with being married to a Priestess. She doesn't even notice Cardinal Geoffrey hugging her and whispering his congratulations. The music on the stage distracts her from her thoughts.

It is then that the stage is cleared and the Pope looks to the gypsy sisters for a performance. Nisa moves quickly to Maria, clenching her hand in her own tightly as she meets her eyes.

The move up to the stage to meet their newly found sister as Lord Aldain passes them by with a confused expression as he makes his way to his seat. Nisa clenches her sisters arm and turns to her with a hug. As she embraces her, she whispers in her ear.

"Do not fret, sister. We will not lose. I promise; trust me." Nisa says hastily as she turns away with a false smile as she turns to Hialeah to wait for a signal. In but a few moments, their performance shall begin--a song to praise the Gracious Sagia, a Deity that threatens to tear their family apart once more.

Maria hugs Nisa as they move to the stage. She nods her head as she too, smiles with a false attitude. How could a goddess like the supposid Sagia threaten to tear a family apart after they had taken so long to find their long lost sister? For that matter how could she seperate them at birth?

The music begins to play as the three sisters begin to dance to the music. Both Nisa and Maria guiding Hialeah step by step. She does well not missing a step so far. When the song begins they sing with uncanny harmony. It is a beautiful song. Maria cannot help but feel outrage as they sing the lyrics to the song. Such a sweet song of how great the goddess is. What a waste of good energy. Maria could think of so much more that was better then this supposid goddess.

And Lord Aldain...No one even wanted to get her started on him. She knew he had something to do with this even if he looked of pure innocence. He was a great political figure in both politics and even in the Sagian church. Something was amiss and she didn't like the smell of it. Maria would have to corner Kevin at some point and find out more about him if he could tell her anything. She knew he didn't like her, but the prince of all people should know at least a little of the supposid great lord right?

Hialeah could not be more delighted when the Pope announced their performance. The sisters came to the stage. She is glad to see the sisters worked out the problems from earlier. Then they begin their performance. Hialeah loves to sing and dance with the sister. There is something about it that felt so right. The song is perfect for this occasion, for Hialeah had so much to be thankful for. First her new priestesshood and now her future marriage.

She looks in Lord Aldain's direction as she dances along. She will have to let everything go and trust in Sagia. Sagia has never steered her wrong before, and won't this time. She puts her heart and soul in the performance. Too soon the song is done. The audience applauds as they take their bows.

The Pope stands as the applause dies down. "The next dance will be the newly bethrothed couple. Lord Aldain if you will join your fiancee."

Hialeah's heart pounds as he stands and approaches her. She cannot help, but blush a little as he takes her hand. His other goes around her waist. It is the closest she has ever been to a man before. Even Kevin.

As the performance is completed, Nisa takes her seat once more as music is played for the newly betrothed begin to dance. Her heart races, still calming from the performance, and also from stress. However, she assures herself in her mind that things will be okay--after all, Lord Aldain knows that they are related, knows that they are sisters and she is sure that he would never tear them apart.

Finally, a real smile rises on her lips as she looks up at the two, her eyes meeting those of Lord Aldain's for such a brief moment. He seems so uncertain and somewhat confused, bless his heart. There is no way that he could possibly have known about this...they must have had the Lord's father's permission. The church can work in ridiculous ways.

After a while, others begin to stand and dance as well, moving about the couple with a simple grace, but still giving them room. Most of the food has been eaten and cleared, but Nisa remains seated, munching tiredly. A few men offer to dance with her, but she politely declines, claiming the need to cool off from her previous dance, as well.

Lord Aldain moves in closely to Hialeah, looking nonplussed. "I am truly sorry, Hialeah. If I had known....I would have discussed this with you beforehand; I--"

He stops speaking as the Pope passes by, merely smiling at the man assuredly, looking happy and bright, despite how pale he seems to be all the time. He waits as the Pope falls away from hearing distance. "I am shocked that the Church would do this. If you at any point would not wish to be with me, you have but to say it and I will do whatever I can to fix things without causing insult--and of course, to follow Sagia's will, which I am sure would only be asking for our cooperation."

Maria takes a few moments to catch her breath seeing as the performance they have completed took her breath. She sat down and began to turn down a few dances. She then is asked by a gentleman to dance and she accepts his invitation. She dances with him closer to where Nisa is at. However instead of cutting him off in mid dance she continued to dance with him till the end of the song. When it is completed and he asks her to dance again she gracefully refuses him.

The man is not happy about being turned down, but he backs off a little reluctantly. Maria has to explain to him that she is slightly tired and needs to talk with her sister before he finally leaves her alone. She walks over to Nisa and sits down beside of her.

“What do you make of this Nisa? I think they have done this on purpose. I wonder if someone other than the Lord Aldain knows that we are related.” She cannot stop running theories in her mind that are most likely false. Her mind is so childish sometimes, especially when she is upset. “I just can’t believe they are going to marry. Ugh…It is wrong in all the wrong ways. Do you think there is anything we can do to stop it?”

Hialeah looks up at Lord Aldain. As she listens to him her heart begins to race even more. A light blush appears on her cheeks as she wonders what his chest would look like. “Don't worry about it Lord Aldain. I consider it a blessing of Sagia to be married to a wonderful man like yourself. I am surprised they didn't tell you though, and apologize if this...arrangement...disrupts your life at all.”

~~~~~~~~~

Kevin fumes internally watching the couple dance. It is obvious that Aldain is just as surprised as everyone else. So he saves his disgust for the Pope, who flutters around the couple like a happy songbird. Bastard, he is responsible for this. He and that damned Cardinal, they found out about their relationship and put a stop to it the only way they could. Hialeah won't do anything to stop it. They have her so brainwashed. He has to wonder what makes her so important for them to do that though.

Nisa watches as her sister rejoins her and she looks quite sad as she hears Maria's words. She nods her head in understanding at the girl's anger, but she does not share it. "I do not know if anyone else knows, but I doubt it. I'm not sure if we can stop it, but I won't even try if Hialeah does not wish to stop it. She is the one to be married, so it is her choice, not ours."

She remains seated, smiling and nodding at those that were about, greeting them both with thanks for their performance and complimenting their hard work. She graciously greets and thanks all, including the Pope that smiles kindly and speaks good words that go in one ear and out the other. She's not entirely paying attention to the conversations to be had, as she's sort of...out of it.

Lord Aldain almost blushes--but it does not come. "This is not at all disrupting, it is simply surprising. I don't want you to feel forced or uncomfortable, Hialeah. So long as you remember this, I think we will be fine, don't you?"

The dance continues, but it slows as the music slows and it becomes easier for him to chat with her as many of the guests surround the sisters to thank them and compliment them for their performance.

"My life is not my own, it is Sagia's. If she wills me to marry you, I will do it happily. Personally I consider it a blessing that she selected a man like you." Hialeah blushes as the dance ends. She accepts the well wishes of the guests, but slowly makes her way to one of the outdoor patio areas. She knows she should be in there, but needs a few moments to wrap her head around what is happening.

She looks out at the sleepy city and smiles. She walks out to the decorative gate. Even the city seems to know she needs some quiet time. She meant what she said to Lord Aldain. He is a wonderful man. She wonders what life will be like as both chapel priestess and Lady Aldain. Hialeah Aldain, it has a nice ring to it.

Maria holds back her anger knowing that her sister is right. Hialeah will want to marry the man more then likely. With what ever spell he has on her. She thanks the people as they praise them on their performance. The song ends and Maria watches as Hialeah walks outside away from the crowd.

Maria pokes Nisa about it. "I think the 'bride to be' is a bit over whelmed. Nisa, we should tell her. What do you think?" she whispered to her.

Nisa considers her options carfully, her eyes darting about the room with caution. She sort of wants to talk to the Lord...he won't separate them, will he? She really wants to ask..."You get Hialeah. I'm gonna go to talk to Aldain. He knows we're sisters--I'm not sure how he could tell, but I do know that he knows, so...I need to try to assess his intentions.

You should make sure Hialeah is...content. Just don't try to...pressure her, or anything. We'll only push her away if we do that."

When she replies to her sister, she whispers as quietly as she can, moving closer to the handsome man that pushes butterfly flutters into her heart. Although part of her is glad for the reason to be able to talk with him, another part of her is mostly just concerned about being separated from Hialeah, especially so soon. She really must ask, so she makes her way over to him.
