Queen Escort or Queen Regent?




#ATOZ Challenge Theme: Finding Myself - Living My Life




The crown had to remain intact. She took another look in the mirror. It wasn’t just a matter of pride now. It was the need of the hour. With power came responsibility. Giving a final look in the mirror she walked through the corridors. She had made her decision. No! Not giving up the crown. She wouldn’t, however selfish it may sound.


She was raised to be a queen. Did she opt for it?No. But she liked being the Princess. With the title came the perks of being pampered and having undivided attention. But she wasn’t the pampered princess who was spoiled beyond limits, unlike what everyone liked to believe. She knew her responsibilities and worked hard for her goals. Her hardwork helped her in her goals and not the title of Princess.


She grew up keeping her hat intact until calamities befell. Times changed, and with that people too. Living in shadows was not what she liked, but she was forced to. It was a whole cringing experience until the Prince came along and swept her off her feet.


Life goes on, they say. Time doesn’t stop for anyone and within that time you have to prove your mettle. It was after lot of thinking she had taken this decision.


Being Queen she enjoyed. But what was it? Queen Escort or the Queen Regent? She wasn’t given the choice. But she had made her own decision. She knew what she wanted irrespective of what was decided.


No, she didn’t want her King to be her Escort while she flaunted her title of Queen Regent. Neither did she want to be the Queen Escort and live in the shadows. Odd as it may sound, she wanted both of them to be Regents. Would she succeed?


Success stories are not written in a day. Turmoil, insults, toiling, all comes as a package.


But the crown had to remain intact. No matter what. People had worked towards it to see it on her head. She wouldn’t let anyone down. More importantly,she wouldn’t let herself down. She knew she had to keep it, and keep it,she would.

Regent it was. She had taken her decision. That was what she had worked for? Wasn’t it?
