When my father first told me this, my answer was no. I felt so betrayed, because I felt like he made a deal without my permission, and he did. I was also shocked at this because I know this would really change my life. The only thought that was going through my head was hatred for my father. I absolutely hated this idea. I know I'm not ready for all of this at all. After calming me down, he later explained about the alliance in farther details. It started to make more sense to me, but I was still furious with the idea. He told me that if I do marry this person, he would have a better chance of ruling securely. This made me think about it more because I did want my people safe. I told my father that I should have some time to think about it, and he agreed.
