PostSubject: The Sweetest of Apologies (Tag: Marina and Royal Family if they want)   Fri Sep 05, 2014 7:08 pm

It was a sweet calm new day, every piece in its place... every calculation in affect sure it had been a mistake but every mistake could be an advantage. After all that was the game, move and countermove she was not even on anyone's radar in the first place and now there was doubt people would expect her to make it far. That was of course their mistake and her gain.

She had made the hasty formal request in lovely but panicked writing for the meeting, after all that was her mask a scared and lonely little girl. It was a delicate balance to make sure she only looked inexperienced not incompetent. One she had been doing well at now was the big test.

Alyssa gently fixed herself as she was being pushed along keeping her eyes open although the brightness of the morning made it hurt it was a pain she could live with as the doors were opened and she was allowed into the glorious throne room, a sight she had only heard about from her parents now made real for a moment her reaction was real as she was a bit in awe.

Marina was quite curious about the young lady she would meet any moment now. She had been informed of what happened to the family of the girl and now that nobody was left she was the head of house Baelish, seated in Harrenhal, but since Marina didn´t have to chance to meet her yet she was quite curious about the young Baelish head.

When the doors to the Great Hall opened, Marinas eyes immediately focused on Alyssa and watched as the young lady made her way to the Iron throne in her wheelchair.

Alyssa was looking around when her eyes saw the queen she focused on her and looked a little embarrassed as she came to the steps of the Iron Throne appearing to be a little nervous but she took a big breath like any child would before doing something important as she bowed her head and torso in a cute modified curtsy for her condition. It was still graceful, she had the proper air of a noble lady, though she kept that pose a bit longer then needed probably because of her nerves.

Of course it was calculated, every move every word Alyssa though of over and over in her head to see how to move everything. A decision made she spoke with the voice of a young maiden, one with much of a burden on her shoulders just like how Marina may have been when she was the young girls age.... 15 and already with so much to handle but trying her best.

"Queen Marina Targaryen, it is my humblest honor to meet you.... I-I sorry it's under these circumstances, I did not mean any slight against the royal family I swear" speaking softly seeming unsure of whether or not to look the queen in the eyes, as if she was looking upon an angel instead of a woman "I really tried my best.... but.... I had to take care of my people, and I wanted to make sure they were well looked after in my absence so I ended up taking longer then planned... and I underestimated the distance, im sorry it's not one's fault but my own" being brave and not making some excuse for herself or blaming it on someone else.

"I feel terrible.... My family..... may... may they rest in piece, had nothing but good words about you" pausing on the part of her family a deep pain showing in her eyes. She was far from over the loss of her parents.

Even though Alyssa seemed to appear as a innocent, kind and weak little girl Marina noticed the strength and of course the impressive manners and behavior of the young head. In her opinion the girl really was something special. She was young, yes but had a big responsibility and people to look after she seemed to want to do the best for them. In some way Alyssa reminded Marina a bit of herself which made the young Baelish earn some sympathy from the queen.

When Marina answered she gave Alyssa a warm and gently smile. "There is no need to apologize Lady Baelish. I can understand your reasons and I´m sure you did your best to come here as soon as it was possible for you."

Ah there it was, everything was well for now Alyssa looked up into Marina's eyes to let the queen see a little bit of shock that she was getting off so easily but the deep unspoken thank you in her eyes as she smiled back at the Queen joyfully.

"Thank you, your Majesty!" realizing she spoke a little louder then necessary she blushed with embarrassment holding unto her dress gently taking a moment to clear her throat "I mean.... your kindness is well appreciated, My Queen. I would come up to give you my vows and kiss your hand but ummmm" she said looking at herself in her little rolling throne with a embarrassed smile "I dont think I could make it up the steps"

Marina chuckled a bit. Even though the girl seemed to be actually pretty brave thus let´s say inexperienced with talking to royals, for the morment she mostly was a young cutie in the queens eyes. After she was finished with her chuckle however she cleared her throat gently and waived at some servants before turning her attention back to Alyssa. "Well as much as being the queen of seven kingdoms asks from you it gives you quite a lot benefits including servants acting on your command."

The servants immediately hurried and lifted Alyssas rolling throne up the stairs until she was able to as she wanted and show her affection to the queen while the servants made sure the wheelchair would stand still and not roll downstairs.

Alyssa letting out the most adorable squeak as she soon found herself and her chair lifted surprisingly and carried up the iron throne. Trying her hardest not to laugh at her situation at least it was how is looked, in truth she tried not to laugh at how hospitable the queen was being.

Smilling happily as she looked at the queen as she giggled like a young maiden "I can see that, must be fun sometimes.... but very very hard, I know how big it is to run a section of lands I couldn't imagine what it would be like to run a kingdom oh!- Im sorry, I shouldn't say such things.... you just.... your just very easy to be honest with my Queen, I guess that's because you and Queen Daenyrs were my idols growing up" blushing embarrassed by her statement before taking another breath as she nodded her head with firm resolve before gently moving to take Marina's hand bowing herself low....

"I, Alyssa Baelish, Head of House Baelish, Lady of Harrenhals and Lady Paramount of the Trident do swear my lands, my men and my loyalty to Queen Marina Targaryen, Queen of Andals and First Men until the day I die"

Giving a soft quick peck to the royal ring on Marina's finger before gently letting go and sitting back up with a smile.

"Long may she reign"

Marina listened carefully to what Alyssa said and smiled back to her. In fact she actually started to like this lady Baelish.

But then at some point during the vow Marina started to get attentively. Whenever people tend to compliment a bit too much they normally have some special intensions and most times they are not good, at least not for the queen and maybe even her whole reign. Still Alyssa just seemed to be far too innocent to mean any harm.

In the end Marina decided to take the young girl as harmless, which didn´t mean she´d not have an eye on Alyssa just in case. "I thank you for your kind words lady Baelish. I hope me and my aunt have been good idols for you, especially since we can be honored to had that special role in the life of such a lovely young lady that you are."

Alyssa stayed smiling though her eyes watched and found something worrying to her, the queen had paused not too long to cause Alyssa fear that the queen saw through her but enough to let her know that perhaps she had gone too far, dammit she hated competent nobles, competent servants were a blessing but competent nobles? they just got in her way. She decided it was time to recoil drawing a new card gor the game "I thank you for your kindness..." she said softly then nervously bit her lip looking down as her hands as she gripped unto her dress as though she was nervous to ask something.

"Im sorry to bother you with this so close to your coronation my Queen.... but.... I..." taking a another brave deep breath before looking up at her "I beg of you please do not turn my title back over to the Tully's- I know they were the Lord Paramount of the Trident before my family, and im so sorry to bring this up so abruptly but I heard a rumor that- that because of my situation that you might and.... and I couldn't bear it, my father- my father worked so hard to earn every inch of respect for our house, I do not want to let him down in death by not being able to at least try my hardest with such responsibility, I know im young but ill work hard I promise!"

She stated playing the part of that same brave little maiden trying to live up to the expectations upon her, not wanting to fail and let down their family. It was another precise hook, to alleviate the queen for no one was truly kind without some purposed and she intended for her kindness to be a reflection on how she wanted preserve the memories of her family and good of her people. Giving the queen something to bite into rather then let her wonder.

Marina listened carefully as Alyssa spoke. "I see." She paused and kept quite for some time to be able to think about it. Harrenhal was legally given to Petyr Baelish, Alyssas father who did well of taking care of it, just like his daughter. But on the other hand the Tullys indeed had some sort of right to get Harrenhal back if they want to. Also there was the fact that Alyssas health was questionable and it obviously had to give the young girl some troubles others wouldn´t have. Still, lady Baelish had the law on her side. She was the one having the biggest right to own Harrenhal.

"You shouldn´t think to much about rumours though it was good to come to me directly. Your family got Harrenhal legally so as long as you are able to watch over your territory, it stays under your and only your protection until circumstances may change."

Alyssa paused with the queen looking a bit nervous for her answer before seeming a bit relieved  at the statement giving a small smile  "thank you.... Thank you so much,  you  have no idea what it means to me. I have had to work so hard to make sure I wasn't dismissed or sent somewhere to be fostered after my family passed on. I just, I couldn't leave my home if I didn't know it would be well taken care of.  You are very fair my queen, for that I am grateful" Nodding her head as she took a breath " Ummm now that business is out of the way, I guess I shouldn't bother you" letting out a small pout as she said that, the girl seemed to like talking to someone. Marina had her siblings but Alyssa was all alone.

Again, Marina gave the girl a gentle smile. "There is no need to thank me. It is your right and my job to keep things fair or at least according to law." She still didn´t really now where to put Alyssa but Marina had a good heart and cared a lot for her people just like her aunt so she continued. "My time might be rare but whenever you need someone to talk to you are free to come to me Lady Baelish."

A good heart.... such weakness and folly, something she had to rip out of herself not to long ago. Her body was young but her mind was old, the gods must laugh at her. But she was determined to laugh right back, as she burried every thought every emotion consumed in her mask.

Afterall she was nicknamed to the Angel of Harrenhal, best use it... her eyes twinkled with joy in their haunting blueish violet, an almost targaryen colour as she smiled happily "that is so nice of you, your majesty please... you can call me Alyssa if you wish, im still trying to get used to being Lady of my house. I must say though im a bit nervous I have so many events to go to now, your coronation of course being the most important. Then there is the Tully's wedding soon after. Makes me wish I was a bit older maybe I could eventually meet someone... though I know my prospects are unfavorable. I have made it known I wish for a matrilineal marriage, and on top of that my condition makes it uncertain how well I could take having a child" smirking a little she lightly decided to joke with the queen "to be honest sometimes I wonder if the men had to put up with everything us women do, would they run away screaming back to their swords and wars?" suppressing a little giggle.

"I can understand your feelings Alysse but don´t worry, after you survived the first happenings every following will be much easier to handle." Marina chuckled a bit about Alyssa bringing up the topic about marriage. First is was a happy one. She hardly knew any woman who didn´t dream of marrying and start a family sooner or later. But then, her chuckle turned bitter. A marriage could easily bring regret, anger, sorrow and much more in your life. Mostly when it was a marriage not reasoned in love which was for most people the case, also for Marina. She also was going to marry someone she didn´t know at all, not to mention that he wasn´t from westeros and was close to be twice as old as herself. Still she tried to keep smiling at Alyssa. "Well you still have quite a lot good years so you don´t need to worry about a marriage and having children yet. I´m sure when it´s time everything will be fine."

When the young lady then joked Marina smirked lightly back. "I think they would try hard not to but when it´s the time to bear a child they would run back for sure."

Alyssa watched the queen's features noting the tone, the half smile that did not reach the eyes, proccessing every little piece of information to store it for later but for now she would simply be her mask, no more plays for today for patience is a key weapon in the game of thrones. As if she knew nothing of Marina's inner thoughts, the little maiden couldnt help but giggle at the witty comment of the queen only to cover her mouth for being a little loud again but still smilling as she gently closed her eyes.

"I think so too, your highness" nodding her head "forgive me for my closed eyes... im a bit sensitive to light, I guess that comes from staying inside so much"

"In that case I´m sure your eyes will get better when you are getting out more often now, otherwise I´m sure the grand maester would be willing to check on you and see if he can make it better." Marina tried to get serious again but she somehow felt sorry for that girl having such a weak body since she is even sensitive to light still it always was better to never underestimate people.

"I hope so too!" she said happily before blushing softly "Y-y-your majesty, your kindness is truly remarkable, you hardly know me and you have already helped me so much" Nodding her head as she though on it for a moment "I dont know if im in the need for such a skilled maester yet, besides perhaps it was simply something I was born with... my mother told me that I was really small when I was born because I had been born too early so I got really sick. Most people thought I would die, but my mother prayed crafting a tribute to the seven like her mother used to. She used to say that I cried my first strong healthy breath the second she finished her work, so the gods gave me mercy but in return took the use of my legs so that I would always be humble about the life I was granted"
