Minus the beard he really isn't bad looking...Taryn thought, trying not to show any amusement at the disappointing beard. She did the traditional curtsey, smiling at him as kindly as they could. "I"m sure you'll be a wonderful king," they said, straightening up.

Taryn approached him slightly, not really sure what they were supposed to do in this situation. Talk, they assumed, but they didn't think t was up to them as to where.

Hayworth nodded. "Thank you, milady. I'm sure I will be. I've been preparing for it all my life. I'm sure you'll be an excellent wife to me." He offered his arm to Taryn expectantly. "Shall we take the dance floor?" The way Hayworth said it made it clear he was expecting Taryn to agree, with enthusiasm even.

Taryn smiled at him, although the last comment about the wife, make them almost lose the false smile. Something about the phrase they couldn't quite place sent shivers down their spine, and not in a good way. "I'd be delighted," they said, taking his arm, the uneasy anxiety of embarrassing themselves coming up again.

"I thought you would be." Hayworth lead Taryn out onto the ballroom floor, placing his hand on their waist and entwining their fingers. "I'm also a skilled dancer. Do you like to dance, princess?"

Taryn allowed him to lead them, draping the other arm around him, preparing to dance. "I love dancing, I'm sure you're incredibly skilled. I have heard so much," I'm lying already...

Hayworth smiled. "I'll be sure to keep you entertained with many balls then, once we're wed." He started to move across the dance floor, taking Taryn along with him. Although he'd boasted of his skill, the actual action of dancing was not particularly adept or talented in this area. As it turned out, Hayworth lacked a certain grace on the ballroom floor.

Taryn continued the smile, although part of it was genuine, balls were fun. "You seem to have things all sorted out for then," they said, allowing him to lead as they danced. They were probably an average dancer, one with training but nothing extra ordinary, but not bad. Years of classes made up for any clumsiness they had.

Hayworth nodded, not even actually looking at Taryn directly in the eye. "Of course I do. I wouldn't want you to have to stress about it, princess. Just follow me and I'll take care of you." When he smiled again, dimples showed, but there was a certain lack of interest in his face that made him seem distracted, if not outright bored.

Taryn frowned for a moment, but figured they were overreacting. He was just trying to be a good husband right? That wasn't supposed to be upsetting. They shrugged it off. "That's very sweet, but of course I'll help in any way I can," they said, focusing a little more on the conversation, and a little less on the dancing.

Hayworth laughed a little, patting their waist a little. "So young, aren't you? There's no need for you to help, it's not part of your duties. Haven't your governesses taught you that, milady?"

Taryn forced back the frown that was trying to form on their face. "I'm young yes, but I still will be a queen, and I am a queen who wants to take care of the people." They couldn't shake the strange feeling that was growing inside them, but were almost certain they were overreacting.

Hayworth nodded, indulgent. "Of course, dear. But the king is the one with all the power and the queen really deals more in, ah, ... domestic affairs, shall we say."

Taryn raised an eyebrow, but quickly caught themselves, putting a smile on their face. "The country is technically a domestic affair," they said as kindly and politely as they could.

Hayworth's smile became a bit more stilted. "I suppose you could say that, yes. But you're still a young girl, princess, I'm sure you'd rather spend your time planning the wedding, arranging for royal balls, that type of thing."

Taryn bit their lip. "Yes of course, the wedding, the best day of my life," they said, putting a wider smile on, letting the subject drop although feelings a distinct sense of defeat. They weren't sure why this was bothering them so much, and they really didn't want a fight to happen, especially not in public like this.

"Certainly it will be a ceremony fit for people of our high status." Hayworth agreed. "And, I've been mulling it over, and I believe that you could do with a proper bodyguard. I wouldn't want anything to happen to you before we've been married."

Taryn's smile disappeared, replaced with a look of confusion. "I have one. Alice, she's the best," they said almost forgetting to continue dancing. They weren't sure where this was going, but they had no intention of giving Alice up. For a reason they couldn't quite place, they found themselves a little bit attached to her.

Hayworth sighed, put upon. "Milady, she's a woman. She's hardly suited to the business of protecting anyone, especially given she's hardly bigger than you are. You need a real bodyguard, one who can think rationally and properly analyze and handle threats to your life." He said, pausing in their dance. "I have someone in mind for you, this- Alice girl, I'm sure we can find her a job in the kitchens or somewhere more suitable."

Taryn stared at him, shocked, to the point of almost falling over. "She saved my life just this morning," they said, no smile, not even fake on their face. "I wouldn't feel safe with a man," they said thinking quickly. "You never know what a man might do...would you hate for something to happen to your bride before the wedding?"I'm gonna make myself sick... The unease wasn't going away anymore, but they still felt like they were overreacting. Alice and them weren't friends, why did they care so much?

Hayworth frowned down at Taryn. "Not all men are such beasts. My men are honourable. They would never assault a lady in such a foul manner." He ignored completely what they had said about Alice saving their life this morning. "It was almost certainly a fluke the girl managed to save you. I've yet to see her demonstrate any skill at all. To even give her a kitchen job might be a challenge for her."

"I think perhaps this discussion perhaps is best to be had in private so no one thinks we're having a disagreement. It wouldn't look good," they said, glancing around, noticing some people beginning to whisper.

They returned to the matter at hand. "I promise you no one else can protect me better than her," they added.

Hayworth sighed, exasperated. "I don't understand your insistence. She's a woman and even worse she's- well. It's just quite clear to me that she's a poor fit. You'll see, I'll speak with the king and queen later and we'll get this little matter sorted out. Don't worry about a thing, princess." He reached up and patted Taryn's shoulder. "But you're right, this is a private matter and we shouldn't discuss it so openly."

Taryn sighed. "My parents hired her...I don't think they picked someone incompetent," they retaliated," they said, not realizing the potential 'ill fit' he was referring to. The pat on the shoulder made them repress a shudder.

Taryn forced on a smile. "Perhaps we could adjourn to the garden, go for a walk?" they suggested.

"Whatever my lady wishes." Hayworth conceded, tucking their arm into the crook of his elbow and leading them out into the garden. He didn't realize Alice was following behind, hiding in the shadows and watching to make sure nothing untoward happened.

Taryn had counted on Alice following, hoping that Alice might make an appearance, and prove that she clearly didn't need to be replaced.

They walked beside him, glancing at him as they went. They weren't quite sure what to say, suddenly feeling rather shy. Being in front of people they both had to put on a little bit of a show, but alone,they weren't quite sure.
