"Well, you, nobles, have so many rules, don't do this, don't do that. You were right to speak your mind. Who you are shouldn't be restricted by your rank,"
His words struck a chord with her. A commoner he may have been, but he certainly had the heart of a noble as well as the mind. "Unfortuantly my father doesn't quite see it that way, but I suppose he's grown up with those morals being drummed into him" she replied, "I never really lived by the rules though, I tried to but it was suffocating - that and my father would always tut at something or other if I set a foot out of line. Im starting to wonder if that was one of the reasons why he kept me away from court and any visitors."
Yes, life had definatly felt a lot more free at Eldon's inn.
"You were really a barmaid? You left your home and your life to be a commoner? Was it really that bad?"
She ran a hand through her hair, that had become tangled in places from the windwhilst running. It most likely resembled a birds nest by now, or so she believed.
Romily merely nodded at this, "In a nutshell, yes" she admitted, "to each of those - I left and wandered for a while, doing odd jobs here and there to at least have some money or a bed for the night - then I started work as a barmaid at an inn and that was only really an exchange for a roof over my head, and that's it really..." she paused, "I passed myself off as a commoner and no one knew about it."
Romily sat back more against the tree, rolling her head to the side to look at Percival, "Now you've heard the boring story of my life" she grinned, "So come on - an eye for an eye, what's your story, if you don't mind telling me?". Romily knew very little about Percival, only that he was a commoner - and that had been found out when they'd first met in the courtyard of the castle. "Do you miss home?"
