After her father had been cured Lizzie was sent off to have something to eat, get washed up, and take a nap. When Lizzie woke up it was three in the afternoon! Lizzie got up and put on a clean dress. She wasn't exactly sure where to go, her father could be anywhere. Eventually, she ended up deciding to go to her father's study. It was where he went for his government duties and since he had a lot of those piled up he would probably be in there soon. Lizzie picked a book off the book shelf and sat down to read. Twenty dakika later the door to the study opened. Lizzie looked up to see her father's face. Then her mother walked in.
"Oh hi, Lizzie," Lizzie could tell that her father felt uncomfortable.
"Lizzie we have great news for you," her mother told her. Lizzie couldn't possibly imagine what it was. "You're getting married!" the Queen shrieked.
"What?!" Lizzie could not believe this. "Mother how could wewe do this?!" Lizzie had been inayofuata in line for the kiti cha enzi since she was born.
"Well your father and I were going to let wewe be inayofuata in line for the throne, but whatever wewe gave your father has made him stronger than ever. Then the king of Corona sent us a letter a few days zamani and he wants wewe to marry his son! It's perfect. It will bind our two kingdoms together and make Bayern much stronger."
Lizzie couldn't believe it. Sure Bayern hadn't been the happiest place for Lizzie but she had always taken a small comfort in knowing that one siku she would get to rule it. Now she would have to songesha to a place she had been to once and marry a complete stranger. And then there was Ben. Ben! He worked at the palace! What was she going to do if she ever saw him at the palace? He would be heartbroken (not like Lizzie wasn't but he wouldn't know what was going on).
"We'll give wewe time to let it sink in," the Queen said. She left the room, the king trailing behind her, but then he stopped. He gave her a alisema look and mouthed the words patio ten minutes.
