Overall idea: Aileen, princess of Elbright has come of age and must marry a prince making the new king and Queen of her beloved kingdom. Aileen grew up with all the princes in the neighboring kingdoms and they are all arrogant ruffians, she wouldn’t trust any of them to rule by her side in her kingdom that she loves. The pressing fact is her father is fading and if she doesn’t marry, a duke could take their kingdom forever. Aileen is the oldest of three sisters so she is the heir to the throne. If she was one year younger she would have been able to marry a man with any title, but as queen she must choose a royal to take her hands. Her father forces her to go to the ball at prince Malaki’s palace, this marriage would be an obvious benefit Elbright. When Aileen meets malaki at the dance she gather not much has changed since the last year she met them. Malaki attempt to woo contains many assaults to Aileen. At this point Aileen claims that she is tired, Malakai ask his captain of the guard Luken spinks to escort her to his guest room. Luken is quite a gentleman even when Aileen take her anger from Malaki out on him. She apologizes and she ask what she could do to make it up to him. He says let me escort you to the gardens unless you are truly tired. She agrees, Aileen and Luken enjoy each other company of course.
Aileen is in the garden confessing her love to luken, of course luken listen and think she talks of the prince So Luken tells the prince, the prince sends him to King raizen asking him to accept his hand in marriage and he agrees. The Aileen finds out she is to wed, feeling betrayed by luken and broken hearted she tells her father. She forfeits the crown. Princess levian her sister weds Malaki instead. Luken goes to aileen, she is mad at him of course and he explains himself and they wed instead.
King Raidyn- The father to the three princesses and king of Elbright.
Princess Aileen- The main protagonist. She has a dream to make an equal society that gives opportunity for all of her people and the people in all kingdoms.
Princess Lavinia- Very bold and flirty. Corina is the typical princess, she loves her beauty and finds joy in dressing up. Corinna can be vain and selfish at times, but she is very clothes with her sister.
Princess pipa- The youngest of the three sisters. Pippa is known for being the kindness. She is quiet at shy at first, but once she starts to talk she doesn’t stop.
Prince Malaki- Aileen calls his an arrogant ruffin. Very entitled, but maybe he just needs a person in his life to push him into a change of heart.
Luken Spinks- Prince Malaki’s captain of the guard. He is an orphanage that made his way up to his position. So very kind, yet withered from his childhood and hardships he overcame.
Ensemble: People for the balls, village, wedding, servants, body guards
In the pocket set up a place for Aileen to sit, looking out the window.
(Pokes head in the door) Servant: Princess Aileen, your father called for you to meet him in the throne room.
Aileen: Yes, of course. Tell him I am on my way (to herself). It better not be about that ridiculous ball.
Shut pocket curtain, Light on the front stage curtains are still clothes , king malaki and servant are already on stage, center. A servant stands by his side.
King Raidyn: Aileen needs to go to this ball, my time is running out and if she doesn’t…
Aileen: Father you call’d for me.
King Raidyn: Yes. The carriages leave in half an hour to Malaki’s ball. He will be expecting your presence.
Aileen: Father! (Exclaims in a singing voice)
King Raidyn: Daughter (In same tone as Aileen)
Princess Aileen: I don’t really see why I need a husband
A solider doesn’t need a wife to lead his army
So I can rule this kingdom
All. By. Myself
Must I go to this ball there is no gurantee I will fall in love
I know you want me to give him a chance
Be he hans’t change since the last dance
It just doesn’t make sense
WHY I NEED A MAN!
Must I go to this ball there is no guranttee I will fall in love
Is it such a crime
For me to speak mind
I know there isn’t much time
But I don’t want to marry a man
THAT IS NOT FOR ME!!!
Behind the curtain on the stage, people are already standing up with a dance partners.
Dance for three minutes. Malaki is with luken by his side.
Malaki: Luken. (pats him on the back) Tonight’s the night I get me a wife, aye.
Luken: If there’s anyone to woo King Raidyn’s daughter, it’s you. (sarcastically says)
Malaki: I know. You know what they say: “The best of prince get the prettiest of the princess.”
Malakai: There she is, how do I look?
Malakai: Amazing you say, well I agree!
Walks over to Aileen
Malaki: Aileen! Well who knew you were going to be here tonight…
Aileen: You. Considering you insisted on my presence. (arms crossed)
Malaki: Me? No, I must say it is a pleasure to see you though.
Aileen: I wish I could say the same.
Malaki: Look at you I must say time has made you look… well.
Aileen: And time has not changed you a bit. (walks away)
(Malaki rushes to stop her.)
Malaki: Well that's a good thing, right? (Laughs nervously)
Aileen: Tell me something Malaki, When a fair lady catches your eye, do you look at their heart and mind before trying to woo her?
Malaki: Why does it matter what’s within, when I only see my ladies skin.
(Ensemble women gasp)
Aileen: But when she becomes grey and old, all that’s left is her heart so cold…
Malaki: Then I’ll give her a scarf to warm her heart.
(Ensemble laughs, men and women separate to two sides of the stage)
When Aileen sings, women echo and harmonize, When Malaki sings the men harmonize with them
Aileen: Malaki, there so much more to a lady,(So much more to a lady) then her beauty, then the value of her clothes. If her status has you hesitating, then you don’t know that there is so much more to lady
Malaki: Aileen, there so much more to me(so much more to him) then you can see (then you can see) I am gifted with a rifle, when I am hunting (he is the best hunter in all of the lands)
There is so much more to me
Aileen: Malaki you are not the man for me!
Malaki: Who are you searching for, because I am the only man for you on this dance floor.
Aileen: I am looking for a man that is kind, that will let me speak my mind, my plan
Is to find a gentleman.
Ensemble: Her plans to find a gentlemen, A gentleman, a gentle-men
(Aileen starts to exit)
(Aileen ignores him)
Malaki turns to Luken
Malaki: Well what are you waiting for? Go after her!
Luken: Yes my lord.
Scene change, curtains clothes, garden scene. In front of curtain lights on Aileen is walking down the hall. Luken enters seconds later
Luken: Princess Aileen?
Aileen: If you come to get me to come back to the ball with that arrogant, slimy, stupid…
Luken: I have come to escort you to the guest room if you are tired.
Aileen: How do you work for such a terrible man?
Luken: Well he’s not as bad… He could be worse.
Aileen: Have you looked into his eyes
They hold no kindness
Just arrogant blindness
Luken: My lord may be child, his politeness is mild at best. But he is better than his father, who didn’t even bother to teach him how to treat a lady…
Aileen: So what are you saying?
Luken: You could be his change of heart, you could give him a fresh start.
Aileen: Soldier you seem loyal, but I am running out of time. You see if I was one year younger, I wouldn’t have to bother with marrying a prince for financial benefits.
Luken: I will say when a marriage is arranged, then you don’t have to feel the pain.
Aileen: I am sorry, what?
Luken: Nothing, let me escort you to your room if you really are that tired.
Aileen: I am really not tired .
Luken: I could show you the palace garden.
Aileen: I would love that, actually.

Aileen: Is it really such a crime to feel what I feel. For a man I promise to never love. To fall in love with him so easily.
