By Order Of The King
| Chapter 64
Love After Marriage
Skye got orphaned by both parents at the age of 11. She was the sole survivor of their burning house in a village in the Scottish Lowlands of 1301 in the year of the Lord.
After King's Cinaed order, her uncle got forced to accept her in his castle and undertake her upbringing. That is, not exactly himself or his wife Fiona, but his maids. He didn't even want to take responsibility for Skye in the first place.
But no one can disobey the King's orders.
When Skye reached marriageable age, her uncle saw it as a sublime opportunity to get rid of her, but he reckoned without Skye's point of view. Skye sent away every man her uncle invited to the castle as her potential future husband.
When a new order from the King arrived at her uncle's castle, all family, including Skye, delightedly welcomed the news.
Her greatest fear would come true.
And her future was about to change.
Her entire life would turn upside down.
But she didn't know it yet...
