Summery: A lost princess, a knight without a lady, intrigue, and a quest to return home.
Happily Ever After
It was not that surprising, all in all, when Princess Quistis married Sir Almasy less than a year after her sudden return to the Royal Court. The two of them had been inseparable since her return, and there was also the fact that he was her knight. While the pair might not be quite as obvious about their infatuation as Princess Rinoa and Sir Leonhart were, it was still incredibly clear to everyone just how much they were in love.
The wedding had been rather subdued for a royal wedding. It had been a Centran style ceremony which really had surprised no one. Since her return and the reveal of her Centran heritage, the princess had thrown herself into exploring her Centran roots. The ceremony had been simple and brief, and the guest list had been quite small for a royal function, not more than a hundred people in all. Even so, it was celebrated all across the country. The young sorceress had become quite the popular figure since her reappearance.
Given how romantic their story was, it was no surprise that both the princess and her knight had become very popular public figures. Add to that the fact that her time spent as a servant had made many of the ordinary citizens feel that she was one of them, and it made for her being an extremely popular and influence figure. The princess herself seemed a little bit overwhelmed by the outpouring of support she got, but she was gracious, and quickly became a well known figure in her own duchy.
So the celebrations there in honor of her wedding were not surprising. Princess Quistis married her knight on a wind and wave swept beach. It was the first Centran wedding ceremony most of the guests had ever witnessed, but it turned out to be not that different from a Galbadian one. The bride was resplendent in white even if her gown was in a foreign style, and no witness could doubt the love and affection between the couple.
The pair settled in Caledonia, and even after their honeymoon, they were the main point of gossip for people with every thing from if Princess Quistis would take over some of the things Princess Rinoa had being doing as a sorceress for the country to when their first child would be born. At least, that was the case until Sir Leonhart's proposal to Princess Rinoa became the event of the year.
