The northern guard quickly opened the gate, shutting it just as he made it through. I sighed softly, standing on the small balcony that looked over the village that the castle was surrounded by. "Why don't you come inside?" My father, the king, asked from behind me. My mother was of course standing by his side. "I'm fine." I said softly without looking back at them. I swallowed hard, I was worried. The war had been calm, but we knew they were planning something big, very big. I was worried about Joshua, he was on the front lines. I couldn't really write him, my parents would know there was something going on then.
I leaned against the railing, hearing my parents walk back inside the dining area. I looked down, brushing my hair behind my ear. I was not sure how to hide my emotions if he returned or he didn't come back at all. But that wasn't going to happen, I shook my head and looked up from the village to the sky. The centaurs had never gotten anywhere near here yet. And with as strong as the kingdoms army was, they wouldn't get here.
