Do you like it? I think. I’ve never worn anything like it. I was born on a horse farm, and I’ve been on the road since— It’s to go with the dress…I picked it out of the treasury. I have something else for you... It matches your eyes. He’s layin’ it on a bit thick, huh? As long as he keeps bringin’ stuff, who cares? It’s lovely, Paladin, but I— It looks pretty on you. But it feels awful…I’m not used to things around my neck. Y-you won’t wear it? I’m sorry, Paladin… …It’s just not me. I’m sorry. I understand about the dress, because I can’t walk around the palace in rags.
It does? Never fails, my boy…and that brings me at last to the story of how I finally turned your mother’s head. It was my first tournament, and she was in the crowd. “As I took my place on the lists, I rode to her and declared…” I joust in your name, milady. Should I be victorious, I ask only that you favor me with the delicate touch of your hand upon mine. Really? I ride now, in your gentle honor. ” Oh, they can’t resist, believe me! Though truth be told, Paladin, I think Corin already favors you.
Paladin spends a lot of time here. It’s his favorite room in the palace. Much to his father’s chagrin. He’s always bringing me here to show me maps of far-off lands or to share some fanciful tale of long ago. I humor him, of course. Ugh. And mine. The King will bring him back, ma’am. You’ll see. I hope so, Corin. I really do… The Prince has returned! Make way for the Prince! Of course. …But he’s so young, and so… so… Yes. I know. What…?! Make way for King Victor and Prince Paladin! Oh, Paladin!
