[size18 [google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Sue+Ellen+Francisco] [sue+ellen+francisco [center The King of Cresal has finally reached the ripe age of twenty-one - meaning the kingdoms most adored tradition is about the begin: The Queenstrial. Thirty lucky woman between the ages of 17 - 20 are selected, one from each sector of the kingdom, to compete for the king's hand.]]]

[size18 [sue+ellen+francisco [center The Queenstrial is composed of two major competitions. The first being three months of intense combat where each young woman shows the king and their kingdom exactly how capable they are of protecting the people of Cresal should war break out. During this segment, twenty-five competitors are eliminated - leaving the remaining five to be tested in a far more subtle warfare: that of the King's court.]]]

[size18 [sue+ellen+francisco [center The second part of the trial takes place within the heart of the kingdom, the home of the royal family. The remaining five move into the castle where they will be expected to partake in studies of etiquette and history. Each week the girls will have to put on a banquet for visiting dignitaries to show how capable they are of hosting members from different cultures. This does however provide the young women with the opportunity to get to know the King.]]]

[size18 [sue+ellen+francisco [center However, there are is some history that won't be taught - like the real reason magic is outlawed in the kingdom of Cresal. A very well hidden secret of the royal family is a long line of powerful shape-shifters. However, the previous King had been romantically involved with a witch for several years outside of his union to the Queen. When the truth of their endeavors came out, the King promptly ended the affair to save face. This did not end well for the king though, for the witch then placed a curse on the king and all that are descended from him. A curse of an uncontrollable beast that craves blood shed, that takes control at night one week out of the month, to which the only cure is a married forged from reciprocated love. ]]]

[size18 [sue+ellen+francisco [center Having not believed the witch, the king continued on as though nothing happened. But upon the next full moon the king transformed into a monster of nightmares - slaughtering his beloved wife and several innocent servants of the castle. The devastation caused the king to go mad and take his own life.]]]


[size18 [sue+ellen+francisco [center The loss of both of his parents due to this curse caused the young king to outlaw the use of magic, an offense punishable by death, not knowing that magic is a genetic abnormality. Like his royal bloodline, magic is not something that people acquire - they are born with it, or have it inflicted upon them.]]]

[size18 [sue+ellen+francisco [center Years pass and the mandatory lottery is held for the lucky women selected to take the king's hand in marriage - yet somehow Mariana feels anything but lucky when she is announced as the Aspa Sector's chosen contester. If anything it begins to feel like a curse when she becomes a favorite of the people and makes it into the final round, for she has a secret of her own. And if the king finds out, she could lose her head.]]]

There are moments beyond our control that alter the course of our lives forever. Such an event occurred the moment letters were sent out alerting the kingdom to the beginning of the Queenstrial, an old tradition adored by the people of Cresal. A competition that compares to no other, for the grand prize is a marriage to the King. There is one lucky woman selected from each sector of the kingdom, totaling out to be 30 women, which are transported to The Hunting Grounds. The Hunting Grounds holds the first portion of the Queenstrial, testing everyone on their survival skills and combat prowess. During this time frame 25 out of the 30 women are eliminated from the competition.

Most would relish at being able to compete for the chance to marry the King, but news of the lottery was a somber day in the Faye Household. The chance of being close to the King is the last thing Mariana would desire, for she descends from a magical linage. However, the lottery is a mandatory drawing and there is no changing who is chosen as the sectors competitor. So on the day of the drawing, Mariana and her mother said few words, barely noting that the chance of her being drawn is slim, but couldn’t bring themselves to be anything but worried. So there they stood, in the town center, surrounded by lots of eager young woman, praying that Mariana’s name wouldn’t be drawn. But as fate would have it, the announcer draws Mariana’s name, changing the course of her life forever.

During the days prior to her leaving, Mariana and her mother searched for a silver lining, finding only the money granted to those who make it into the final 10 as a positive result. The money would change their lives for the better, allowing them to make much needed repairs to their home and grant them tools that would further assist in their day to day life. Yet what they wouldn’t be able to predict is Mariana becoming a favorite of the people, who furthered her ranking.

Being the favorite of the kingdom is something that Mariana couldn’t have accounted for, but she certainly wishes she had. For now, Mariana stands in front of the gates to the Kings castle, one of the finalists. The iron work of the fence before her is delicate and detailed, and Mariana isn’t sure if she should be in awe or terror of the master crafted gilded cage before her.

All the while, Mariana smiles, waiting what she expects will be her last few weeks alive. For her darkest secret is the kind that gets you killed on National Viewing, the ability to perform magic. If she has to go out from discovery, she is grateful for the chance to be near the king, because at least she has a sliver of a chance to change his mind. She knows the likelihood of her succeeding is slim, but it’s the only thing keeping her from running out into the surrounding woods.

So here she stands, in the finest golden dress she had ever seen and shoes so delicate she wonders if they will hold her weight, waiting for the gilded cage to open and allow her and the four other girls to enter.
