A spacious and comfortable room decorated moderately with luxurious items, three children were present in the room, and they listened attentively to their royal tutor who exuded an elegant charm.

”What is the most important virtue a ruler must uphold? ”

The three children thought long and hard, each coming to their conclusion.

”Honesty ”, the eldest of the three, Vivilian Keiran answered resolutely.

”Courage, ” the youngest of the three, Grace Keiran said, trying her best to not blush.

The middle child, Aiden Kieran stayed silent, deep in thought.

” Whats your answer, prince? ” the royal tutor asked, prompting the young boy to finally open his mouth.

”Kindness…..isn that the most important virtue? ”, the boy asked, more to himself than to his teacher.


People cheered and screamed in glee as the royal family graced them with their presence, all the members of the prestigious Keiran dynasty waved and cheered as they looked down upon their subjects from their palace.

”These are our people, Ai. ” the King, Aidens father said as his smile became more radiant, ” As the prince….you must serve them, never forget that. ”

After our first meeting, we met again after twelve years on the day of my marriage, today. It was obvious that she wouldn want to marry me…we barely knew each other but as the prince, I have to fulfill my duty to the kingdom.
