I packed my clothes and hugged Austin once more while I dragged my suitcase to the new room.
I sat alone. I took my phone staring at the screen.
Then I heard a knock on the door. I opened the door and chase hugged me tightly…
Then he pulled away, “I’m sorry”
“Its okay”, I respond.
“Okay. I will go back to my room now”,He said putting his hands in his pocket while I slowly closed the door.
I removed Austin’s shirt and I removed the bandage around my chest.
I’m a girl now. There is no need to hide my identity anymore.
I had my shower and went to bed.
The next morning, I wore my uniform and matched to the class while everyone looked at me.
I swallowed hard. I didn’t know what to do.
I went to my usual seat.
“Erm… princess Mia”,I looked up and it was Arden.
“I just want to apologise to you for everything.. I said bad things to you when you first came to the school”,he said and I smiled.
He nods and left.
I took my test book under the desk and started reading.
“Hi princess”,I heard a voice.
“Hi…”, It was Julian.
“I’m sorry but I’m…. I’m… nervous because I have never talked to a princess
I smiled, “Just say whatever you have to say ”
“I just want to say it’s nice to meet you”
“Nice meeting you Julian”,i concentrated on my book once more.
I coughed a little while all the boys around the room removed their hanky.
What is wrong with everyone. Why are they treating me like a princess.
I took my own hanky covering my mouth.
I think this actually going to be difficult than ever I’m the only girl in the school.
I heard the siren and it was time for break. I decided to miss my meal and heard towards my room.
Suddenly i heard a knock on the door. The moment I opened it, all my classmates were holding food in their hands.
I closed the door while they shouted.
One week later.
It was graduation day. Finally my day is up.
I’m nervous and scared because my parents would be mad at me.
I stared at myself in the mirror. I wore jeans with blouse.
I wore my.graduation attire while I followed other students to the hall.
Hilton high was one ofthe best schools, I could ever been to.
I’m going to miss Austin, Chase and Charles.
They were the best friends, I have ever had.
I stared through the crowd looking for them but I couldn’t.
That’s not important right now. What’s is important is I need to make sure my parents weren’t mad at me.
We were all seated and guest were up there.
I sat in silence, while awards were given to the best students and face t students.
I watched my parents up there and they smiled as students received awards.
“Well it’s nice to have you as Hilton’s High students but before we end, I want to give an award to the best student. An overall student but special. A student who
believes everything is possible.. Ladies abd gentlemen, let’s welcome Princess Mia ”
There were applauds around my the room. My parents eyes widened the moment I stood up.
I walked through the crowd and stood infront of everyone. The principal shook my hands giving me my awards.
“Do u wanna give a speech”,The principal asked and I gladly nodded.
I stood there staring at the award. I was why for the moment…
“Coming to Hilton high was a tough decision for me because I was girl. I always wonder how to live among boys.
But I didn’t care cause I wanted my parents to be proud of me.. That’s why I came here.
But I now I realised that I don’t any encouragement from them be cause I have learn to love myself.
To be myself and I’m proud to say I’m a graduate of Hilton high.
I want to the thank principal of this school.
He kept my secret safe and thanks to all you for making me who I am today including my parents. Thank you so much”, I heard people applauding for me while I walked down.
The graduation was over. My parents were actually mad at me.
“How could you do this? You lie to us”, my mom scold.
“Sorry isn’t going to change anything”,She scold.
“Enough Elina!”,my dad scolded,”If we only loved her for who she is and stop complaining that we needed a boy, none of this would have happened. I’m truly sorry Mia… so sorry.”,my dad apologise and I hug him.
“I’m so proud of you princess. Actually we thought you were in Siren High because today is actually your coronation. I think you are ready to be a great queen”
“Really. You think i will be the best queen without a husband”
“Sure, you will”,My dad kissed my temples and hugged me once more as my mom smiled at us.
They left me so I could talk to my friends.
I stood there and saw Chase walking towards me.
“I can’t believe we’ve graduated. I’m really going to miss you”
“But Mia..The feelings hasn’t changed.. it’s still the same”
“Tonight is my coronation. Please invite Austin because I can’t find him”
I saw my guards standing behind my car. It’s time for me to leave.
“Mia!! Wait”,I turned seeing Austin running towards me.
I watch how his hair spread across his face while he ran. He is damn handsome…
He buldge into me with his hands on my lips while he claimed my mouth.
My eyes widened. I wasn’t expecting this. I was expect a hug or something but not a kiss.
I wasn’t responding but it’s seems he didn’t care. He held me tighter to him taking my lips, trying so hard to pushed his into my mouth.
All I did was “Mmm”, I couldn’t even defend myself.
I let go and my fingers moved into his hair responding to his kisses.
I quickly pulled away, “I…. I got to go. See you in the evening.”
He nods and smiled at me.
In the evening, I was in my night robe. My hair and make-up were already fixed.
I sat down staring at the reflection of me. Do you think i won’t mess up as the queen.
And even if I become the queen, I will surely have to go to the university.
Learn some few building and financial issues in the states. That’s has been my dream. I actually want Andalysia to be a better place where people can easily make money.
“Your highness… It’s time”, I heard one of the maids, “Everyone is waiting.”
Three maids entered and they dressed me up. I choose a white gown.
“You look beautiful, your highness”,One of the maids said.
“Thank you so much. Do you think i will be a good queen”,I asked and they quickly nod.
“There she is”,Julian pointed and she walked down the stairs.
She was breath taking as usual even when she was a boy.
She sat on the throne.
The Archbishop standing before her shall administer the Coronation Oath, first asking the Queen. It’s reminds me of my coronation at my 18th birthday but now I’m 22.
“is her Majesty willing to take the Oath?”
And Princess Mia answered, “I am willing”
“Will you solemnly promise and swear to govern the Peoples of the Andaylasia and the Union of Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon, and of your Possessions and other territories belonging to them or pertaining, according to their respective laws and customs?”, The archbishop asked.
“I solemnly promise so to do.”,Mia answered.
“Will you to your power cause Law and Justice, in Mercy, to be executed in all your judgements?”
“I solemnly promise so to do”
The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep. So help me God.
Her Majesty The Queen
Will you to the utmost of your power maintain the Laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel?
Will you to the utmost of your power maintain in the Andaylasia the Protestant Reformed Religion established by law?
Will you maintain and preserve inviolably the settlement of the Church of Andalysia, and the doctrine, worship, discipline, and government there of, as by law established in Andaylasia?
And will you preserve unto the Bishops and Clergy of Andaylasia, and to the Churches there committed to their charge, all such rights and privileges, as by law do or shall appertain to them or any of them?”
” All this I promise to do.”
Then the Queen arising out of her Chair, supported as before, the Sword of State being carried before her, shall go to the Altar, and make her solemn Oath in the sight of all the people to observe the premisses: laying her right hand upon the Holy Gospel in the great Bible (which was before carried in the procession and is now brought from the Altar by the Arch-bishop, and tendered to her as she kneels upon the steps), and saying these words:
The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep. So help me God.
Then the Queen shall kiss the Book and sign the Oath.
The Queen having thus taken her Oath shall return again to her Chair, and the Bible shall be delivered to the Dean of Westminster.
Finally she was a Queen.
The staff man hits his staff across the room, “Amelia of Andalysia. Queen of Andaylasia”
Then we all bowed.
Now it’s time to party… Mia changed into a yellow gown while the former queen introduced her all the ministers of Andaylasia.
“She is beautiful and all mine”,I turned seeing Chase sipping his wine.
“I don’t think so”,I replied.
“Yes, right. I believe she is really mine because I will marry her soon”,I heard Charlie behind me.
I laughed, “She is all mine ”
“But I never record you liking her. It’s was all me. Even when she was a boy, I still love her”
“She was my best friend but I changed my mind a long time ago because I love her too”
Chase punched me on the jaw, “Why are you so greedy. I love her first”,He shouted while everyone was on us.
Charlie grabbed Chase collar and punched him too, “Stop being a jerk”
Then I punched Chase too and the next thing we knew was all students if Hilton high was fighting over Mia.
Then the guards separated us.
“Party is over. Everyone go home”,The queen said, “Except you three”
And everyone dispersed. Mia walked towards us.
“I’m really dissapointed in you guys”
“I can…”,We all stammer.Story from Topster Stories
“Shh.. “,.she raised her hands stopping all of us, “I heard everything. You were fighting because of me. But the truth is, I’m not inlove with you… none of you give me spark. So I suggest you should move on”.
I stared at her feeling hurt for the first time.
“Its better you move on cos tomorrow I will be travelling and I don’t know when I will return. Goodbye “, she whispered and we watched her walked on the stairs.
