Review comments (Thanks to everyone who reviewed)

Atlanta Enchanted: Thanks, though I think I might have got Buri's name wrong. Paragraphing is something I'm not very good at. I've spaced them out more in this chapter. Tell me if they still need improvement.

Figil: Don't worry, there will be a twist. I actually only added the twist after I read your comment, so thank you. I now have a plot. YAY! Anyway the chapter spacing has been taken care of, although as I mentioned before I'm not very good at paragraphing.

Lady Belle of Masbolle: (I like your penname ) I think is sort of like an editor. And thanks

jamie lynn: thanks (just a random bit of info here, my name is Lynn…same as your penname…actually its not all that random…yes I have an obsession with dots)

DaydreamQueenMisha: Thanks. And good catch

jollyrancher-jk2: Commas are another problem of mine. And thanks. Well I would look it up, but the only TP books I have are the Aly ones. I would buy the others, but im really quite stingy. And I found out that Raoul did have a squire, ages ago; Douglass of Veldine, he was in Alanna's year. I'll fix that up later

I LOVE Dom: I love Dom too. Not as much as Briar, but I still love him. Thanks for your comment. And yes, KD's are my fave fics too.

Fantasizing-Lady-Knight: I love Neal and Dom arguing. I love Neal and anyone arguing. He's just so dramatic. And he's such a fun character to write about….Flabbergasted is one of my fave words too. I just had to use it….That spork of death and destruction sounds dangerous. I'll make sure I don't get on its or your bad side

books4me: Thanks. I love Dom too! I'm going to be seething in jealously in the fluffy bits I write. Lucky Kel.

Trickstergal33: Thanks. I found out Raoul's other squire was Douglass of Veldine. 1. I now have a plot, so I now have a title. 2. Paragraphing is not my strong point, but I am (well, I hope I am) improving. 3. Will do.

alyios: I just found out about the other squire. And thanks

KatYoukai: um, was that just because it was too full on or something?


Chapter 2- Mistakes

Kel looked into caring blue eyes as a hand softly caressed her cheek.

"Kel." Dom whispered.

In that one word, her name, Kel heard a deep love that she had never known before and certainly had never been directed at her. Slowly Dom leaned forward. As his lips softly touched hers, she heard a knock.

Kel awoke with start. The knocking continued, informing her there was someone at the door. Grumbling at being awoken during such a nice dream, Kel threw on a tunic and breeches and opened the door. A royal messenger stood there, his hand raised, preparing to knock again. The messenger cleared his throat and bowed to Kel.

"Lady Knight Keladry of Mindelan," the messenger addressed Kel, "King Jonathan IV of Conte requests your presence in his chamber at noon."

"Thank you." Kel replied giving the messenger a bronze noble. He bowed before walking off down the hallway.

Wondering why the King wanted to see her, Kel closed the door and picked up her glaive. She tried to focus as she did a pattern dance called 'Floating Swan', but her thoughts kept drifting back to her dream. Ever since that night at Fort Steadfast one week ago, she had kept dreaming of Dom. After that night Dom had just acted normally, which confused her even more. She found it easier just to avoid him if possible.

Shaking her head to clear her thoughts, Kel finished her pattern dance and then went to bathe as she planned her day. After breakfast, she would do paperwork, before her meeting with the King. Next was a lunch with Raoul and Buri, where everyone would find out their roles in the wedding. After that she planned on taking Peachblossom for a ride and maybe do some jousting practice. Then the rest of her day would be spent doing paperwork. Kel smiled as she climbed out of the bath. If nothing went wrong, she would have a very productive day.

Kel waited patiently outside as one for the guards announced her. He nodded at her to enter the chamber.

"Keladry." The King said smiling. He nodded at a chair in front of his desk. "Please take a seat."

"No doubt you're wondering why I asked you here."

"I am a little curious, your majesty." Kel admitted.

"Then I'll get straight to the point. In the letter you received, I wrote only that I excused you for your actions. I did not however praise them."

Kel looked up shocked. "Excuse me your majesty?"

"Keladry, what you did, although against direct orders, is commendable. I have heard that you were planning on saving those children alone. Although others joined you, you not only accomplished what you set out to do, but in doing so turned the war in our favour.

Wanting to save those children, regardless of the consequences is a show of true character. Having others join you, even though you tried to convince them otherwise, shows just how loyal people are to you and how caring you are of other people.

Keladry, you are an amazing knight and Tortall needs more like you.

I was hoping on giving you a purse as a reward for you efforts. However all of our money is being spent on repairing everything the war has damaged. Once there is enough money, I promise you, you will be the first to receive a purse."

Kel stared at the King to shocked to speak. He sighed got up and walked around his desk and perched on the edge of his desk, so he was right in front of Kel.

"Your probation was a mistake. I've always known that and Lord Wyldon knows that now too. I am sorry you had to go through that. I hope you can forgive me sometime in the future."

"Of course, you majesty." Kel said sincerity on her face.

The King smiled back. "I assume you are attending Raoul and Buri's lunch?"

"Yes, your highness."

"I will see you there then. Dismissed Keladry.

Kel stood up and bowed before leaving the room, still a little bit stunned.


Okay, once again it probably needs editing. i only did a quick check ove rit before i posted it. The main reason for this chapter was becasue i didnt like the way Jon was prtrayed in the PotS books. I like Jon, not as much as others but i still think hes pretty cool. Anyway, i have decided to add a bit of useless information in my notes. Here is the first one:
