Well, to say that Easter when smoothly would be an understatement, as it did not.
All was fine in the morning. I rose from my slumber and dressed - in my riding outfit of course. I did my hair up in a nice bun - not to sloppy and not to to tight. I was dressing to impress as always. I have to - I am an Archer - the first born Archer, even if I am not a male. Superficial or not, I am who I am - an Archer by blood.
Once we arrived at the Hakura Club, we were met by the Hawkeye-Havocs. Little Elisa took an instant liking to Francis, who was rather quite shy around her. My poor brother. But I suppose that it is only natural as he is still in an all male privet elementary school.
Charlton, I believe, is not that keen on Bianca, but they are starting to warm up to each other. That is good, even if if was arranged by father. but I do suppose that he only desires the best for Charlton. After all, my brother is the first born male.
We went for a horse ride, and, surprisingly enough, Francis stayed on his horse. Father and mother were both so pleased about that, as was Charlton, though I believe that he was more impressed with Biancas' riding skills.
After the riding, we headed into the club for lunch. Lunch was nice. It was a roast meat of some kind, provided by the Halaway Family, the clubs finest hunters. I enjoyed it, and mother and Mrs Hawkeye-Havoc chatted away, much to Fathers embarrassment at times, and Mr Hawkeye-Havocs.
After lunch, Bianca, Charlton and I mingled. Being the Fuhrers daughter has its perks and its drawbacks. Lisandre, the Eldest of the Comache siblings at 24, attempted to sweet talk me again. I politely pointed out that i am not interested, thank you. I quite like another person. he asked me who, and I told him that it was not his business. Then nerve of him, my love life is not for open talk. and I know that if his youngest sister, Rhianna ever got hold of who I like, I would find myself in a VERY difficult situation. That woman is such a gossip.
I introduced Bianca to Paige and Mathias and their father Bartholomew Halaway. Mr Halaway is one of father’s generals. One of the only ones that I like as a person. Matthias is nice as well, but he is enamored with Ducia Cristenburge, a woman from North City.
I left Charlton and Bianca to talk with the trios and I mingled some more. Until one of the Southern guests, Abigail Samir, insulted my hair. My hair of all things. She called it a birds nest. the nerve of her! i spent at least 40 minutes doing it to make it look perfect thank you very much. Did she know who my father was? No, and she did not care even when I told her my name. She is spoilt, but she is the daughter of the famous Southern model, Mrs Lust Samir. So, I shall not waste my breath on a half-ishballan girl. Oh, I know that she is ishabllan blooded, her eyes are red and they are not the red of a Grans eyes. Now, if that was the end of my worries, I would be happy. But it is not.
Alexandria was in tears by the time that we left. Apparently she had a run in with that Gran heir, Raymond. He is vile and rude and very much arrogant. I am glad that I am not related to him. He is also prejudiced, much like his father and grandfather, the late Brasque Gran. Such a nasty boy. Apparently, what he did was insult not only Alexandria’s name and her style of dress and hair, but herself as well.
Mother told Alexandria not to worry, that there well be people like that. Father was very much furious and there was a stern warning sent to the Grans to keep their son away from his daughter.
I swear that I saw Raymond smirking as we left, but It could have been that he had reduced Alexandria to tears.
After Easter, it was back to school. I am starting to
open up more around others and lose my Ice Queen mask to achieve more with my classes, though I do so hate cooking, but, it shall help me in the future as i am told, so I shall suffer it,
I have started too sit with Sean at times, and he with me. Though I fear that he feels outcasted amongst my own social group. Most of who are only friends me with because of my fathers status. And when I sit with him, I do feel outcast at times. I was raised to be a proper lady, so it is hard to fit in, but I do do my best. Sean doesn’t seem to mind though. I do not know why.
I have also been on three dates with him though it hard to at times. I must sneak out of the house from time to time. I - I am enjoying myself with him, so I suppose that is good. It - it is also nice to be seen for myself and not as a way to get close to my father or gather favour with him. I have also started to wear my hair down more - in a sorts. I believe that Sean likes it like this, so - I shall leave it.
There have also been rumors of war, but I am not sure, Father does not say much about it. I believe that he does not wish to upset mother, who is three or four months with child. Father is very happy, though it did come as a shock.
I do hope that is a little sister.
And now I must go. I do have homework to attend to.
