Chapter 7

Dear Rowyn,

It's me, again. How was the Netherlands? I heard you visited. Is Vera good? She always suited you best.

I've got a confession to make. Dad set up this stupid selection thing, you've probably heard about it by now, the news and media are trying to squeeze as much content out of it as they can. It's stupid. Stupid stupid stupid. I wish you were going to be king sometimes. But you know I can't get romantically involved with anyone here. It sucks.

I'm thinking of faking it. Just choosing a woman that looks nice by my side and going with it. I might feel bad, but father won't be upset at least.

But there's a boy. I can't keep my mind off him. He's in the palace, but I have really no for sure way of talking to him or even doing anything. He really makes me happy though. Even if I've only talked to him twice. Maybe that's just the raging gay in me...

What do you think? Should I go for it and risk everything? I can't imagine what punishment he could come up with if I was caught. And imagine if the boy wasn't interested and he goes and tells everyone. I don't even know what to do.

But I think I'm falling in love Rowyn. In love with a gardener.

Sincerely,

Benji Krol.

Benji's face went red as he wrote the last part. But before he could erase it, Benji sent it off, hoping for a response soon.
