The princess of Kaloma is distraught, if the chancellor doesn't return to Connier it will mean war, and that is a price she is unwilling to pay. Two weeks before Sestina planned to marry Ottin, he changed his mind. He begged her to wait for him, just a few years, until he could make a name for himself in the court of Connier. She sent him away and never looked back becoming the lady-in-waiting to the princess of Kaloma. Then one day he reappears as the Chancellor of Connier and promises to stay forever, even though she refuses him. Now war darkens the horizon of the two kingdoms.
