The Rightful Queen
At the age of eighteen, Laura was chosen as a female consort to the future King. One of many others. Her elder cousin, Cristina, was the one chosen to be the next Queen.
Laura had always been envied for her beauty and everyone thought the prince would choose her. Everyone mocked her downfall and bullied her since then, with Cristina at the lead. They weren’t afraid, as the next Queen has permitted it. She suffered so much at their hands.

“The rightful Queen still awaits. This time, you must choose her. Remember everything else I said.”
“You’re not wrong with that.” Samuel confidently replied and the king glared at him.
