Kendra

“I shall be blunt,” William, the royal scribe, fixed his eyes on Kendra. “Your mother was The King’s High Mistress of the Realm at the time of your birth and our king is your father.”

“What?” gasped Kendra. “I never knew either of my parents but was told by the orphanage matron that my father was an officer in the royal guards.”

“I was,” the wounded King Edmund gasped. “Before my father died I spent three years in the royal guards.”

Kendra’s mind was in a whirl. “So I was brought here to be told that I was your bastard daughter… ” She hesitated before adding, “Your Majesty?”

“Not really,” William said. “Children the High Mistress bore are perfectly legitimate in our society. Your mother had only one child and that is yourself.”

“So?” Kendra whispered.

“You were fifth in line for the crown. The three princes and one princess along with the queen, were all assassinated by the Saxons who vowed to leave no royal family alive. You, therefore are the sole heir of King Edmund V and by the Royal Decree about to be signed will now become Princess Kendra of  Gwent Kingdom,” William replied.

But is it a futile gesture for the Saxons already control the kingdom.  She must  leave before being found and killed by the ruthless enemy.
