Nyoko

I intentionally lead the sky princess at front making her visible to the queen. Emily told me about Lexa's plans and we came up an idea to torture her until her emotions are too hard to handle, since she decided to torture herself why not making it worst cause no matter what we say she's just too stubborn to listen. I want to make her realize her mistake that giving up on something beautiful that she didn't even tried to start will make her life a living hell than it already is. I held the princess waist and hand and followed the rhythm and the melody of the song. "So how are you princess?" I asked her. "I'm fine Nyoko though I'm a bit tipsy now cause we've been drinking for hours." She said while giggling. "Well good its okay to let loose once in a while" I said to her while smiling. "Yeah that would be nice.. " she said. I saw her friends talking to the musicians, it seems fate is really upon me.  "Princess don't get mad of me okay?" I said with mischievous smile. "Huh?why?" She answered with puzzled looks. "I love your voice why don't we use it tonight.." I said then twirled her facing directly at the councils and ofcourse the queen. I look at them and smiled. Lexa held her hand up to one of the council talking to her making him stop and look at us. The music stopped and all the grounders are now looking at us, that's the way I like it.. their full attention. "Your majesties! Councils.." I acknowledged them with a slight bow. "We would like to present a song to celebrate your union.." I look at the princess who seemed confused and speechless. "Sky princess.. will you do the honors?" I pulled her towards the musicians and gave her a mic. "What the hell Nyoko!" She whispered after she recovered in the shock phase. I just smiled and said "this is for you your highness" I winked at her and place myself within the crowd. She turned to her friends and the musicians. Then the music started. I was surprised that they come up with the music that easily and it was good, their mashing up their culture to ours. I looked at the queen and she's intently looking at the princess, even with her blank face I could still see that spark in her eyes that she's trying too hard to conceal. I smiled victoriously.  Then the angelic voice of the princess blessed the surrounding

"I'm trying to hold my breath
Let it stay this way
Can't let this moment end
You set off a dream with me
Getting louder now
Can you hear it echoing?...

Take my hand
Will you share this with me?
'Cause darling without you...

All the shine of a thousand spotlights
All the stars we steal from the nightsky
Will never be enough
Never be enough
Towers of gold are still too little
These hands could hold the world but it'll
Never be enough...
Never be enough...
For me..
Never, never..
Never, never..
Never, for me..
For me..
Never enough...
Never enough...
Never enough..
For me..
For me..
For me.."

I looked around me and saw all the grounders getting touched by her voice. They stared at the princess with awe and admiration. I looked at the queen and saw her eyes with emotions I couldn't comprehend, her hands tightly gripped the arm rests and seemed to struck to flinch or move. Costia on the other hand are sending daggers to the sky princess. If looks could kill I thought.

"All the shine of a thousand spotlights
All the stars we steal from the nightsky
Will never be enough
Never be enough...
Towers of gold are still too little
These hands could hold the world but it'll
Never be enough...
Never be enough...
For me...
Never, never..
Never, never..
Never, for me
For me...
Never enough....
Never, never
Never enough
Never, never
Never enough
For me
For me
For me....

For me"

The song has ended and the princess bowed. The people are still stuck at awe just staring at her. I stood up and clap my hands and whistle. Then everyone stood up, clapped and cheered for the princess.

Lexa

I felt a tear running down my cheeks, I immediately wipe it off and composed myself when the crowd cheered for the princess. Just like that she stopped my world and just like that she melted my hardened heart. I felt a hand touching my arms I glanced at the person next to me and she gave me a sweet smile but I just looked away and pulled my hand away from her touch. The sky princess took a bow and look straight at me with pained eyes. I could feel the burning of my heart, the intensity of emotions she's giving me caught me off guard, I gasp for air trying to control all the emotions hitting in to me in just one blow. I avoided her gaze and grip the arm rests of my throne. I drowned my drink and pulled Costia kissing her directly on the mouth which she immediately responded. I have to drown this feelings away. I heard the crowd cheered and I pulled away. I saw my people raising their glasses to us. Fuck. They all witnessed that. I saw the sky ladies looking at me with deadly glares,Nyoko seemed disappointed of me and just looked away while Emily on the other hand didn't even bother to raised her glass in fact she drowned it immediately and harshly put the glass on the table. The sky princess wearing that golden gown could easily be seen in the crowd. I saw her walking away from the crowd with haste. I want to run and follow her but I know this is for the best for both of us. I hate seeing her hurt it really pains me too. But she will suffer more if she's with me.

Allison

"Where's Clark?" I asked Octavia and Raven when I noticed that she's not anymore standing in front of us. We were too distracted with the queen kissing Costia that we didn't even noticed Clark's disapperance. We immediately scattered and looked for her. This is not good. The queen just made a point back there that her decisions are final which broke Clark's heart to a million pieces.  I swear that Queen's gonna regret everything she's done to the princess. I entered the mazed dark part of the garden which is away from the celebration and looked for her. I squinted my eyes in order to see from the dark. I was walking and running but all I could see is tall bushes covering the light of the lamps coming from the kingdom luckily the moon is bright enough for me to see the trails. I reached at the middle of the maze and saw the princess sitting on the fountain while looking up the sky and drowning a bottle of wine. I sighed in relief, thank God atleast she's safe. I sit beside her and just listened to the water flowing, the wind blowing and the silence of the night. I just let her take her time. "You know if I'm at skylar city right now I would go to grandmama's shop and drown myself with her amazing lemon squares.." she said breaking the silence but still looking at the sky. "Yeah I bet you'd do that.." I answered. Then I heard her soft sob, I looked at her and was also hurt from the way she is right now, she bit her lip trying to contain the sound of her cry while pressing her palms on her forehead. I moved closer and hugged her. I couldn't contain it and I also cried with her. "I just couldn't understand it Ali... why am I so hurting this badly... I.. I don't even know her.. she.. she didn't even give this attraction a chance..why?...why?..it's so painful Ali...It's too painful..." then she sobbed in my arms. "Shh...it's gonna be okay.. it's gonna be okay..." I said while hugging her and soothing her back.
