Rose White: Search for a King (A Bachelorette Challenge) #2 Fashion Show

This story is a spin-off of Prince and Snow Redux.  Rose White is heir to the throne of Windenburg.  There have been many young men who seek to be her suitor and wish for an attempt to win the heart and hand of the young princess (AND the right to sit at her side as King).  A plan was made that would give each young man a fair shot at this quest.  Join us as we see the plan unfold.  You dear reader will be asked along the way to have your input into these proceedings so keep watch 🙂 

This is the first of a number of colabs that will happen during this challenge.  TY to my good friend Ascanius for going above and beyond with this.  The fashion show and it’s respective screenies are his.

Rose White was so excited to be off to the fashion show.  She had been dreaming about glamour of it ever since meeting the Duchess Matilde and her nephew at her Father’s benefit concert.  Even through she was a princess  she had been a bit sheltered from this type of gala.  Prince and Snow opted to rear their children simply and more down to earth.  She knew and believed as they did, that this would help her be a better Queen to her people but for now she could not help but be a bit charmed by this adventure.

“Be sure to be reviewing the suitors while you are on the plane.  I packed your tablet in your carry on.  When you return we begin to arrange the meetings.”  Claudia bustled busily getting the Princess to her plane.   “Try to arrange them in some sort of order and we will go with the top fourteen.”


“OH YES!  I will do all that you ask my dear Claudia. I will message you the list before I exit the plane.”  Rose White gave a laugh as she hugged her.  “You take the best care of me!  I will miss you.”


The lobby of  Castello Di San Marco was stunning.  As Rose White entered it took her breath away.  The Duchess had seen to everything so that the Princess would be comfortable and well cared for.  Her excitement of this experience bubbled inside her.


Matilde’s Atelier was in a flurry of activity.  Organized chaos with it’s charming mistress at the helm driving the well oiled machine.   “Mike, come here please.  I have word that the car I sent for the Princess is near.” Noting the gleam in his eye Matilde instructed, “I don’t think that being her escort will be a great chore for you dear nephew. You two have good time and do be sure to bring her back here before the show so I can say hello and she can see the fun.  OH and you look wonderful dear.” She gave his shoulder a quick cursory brush with her fingers and sent him on is way to greet her majesty.


“Welcome darling.  I am so glad to see you.”  The duchess rose to greet her, smiling as she teased,  “I trust you found your accommodations suitable?” Rose White, understanding the Duchess’ poke at her, gave an impish smile and poked back in jest.  “you mean that little old room.”  Matilde’s smile broadened at the Princess’ quick wit,  “Mike will take charge of you as your escort and I will see you after the show.”    The Duchess turned to Mike,  her eyes twinkling, “Be sure to show her around and see to her comfort.”   Mike gave a small polite bow (along with a very discreet  eye roll in her direction), “Yes, Auntie I shall.”    The excitement was electric back stage, she could not stop smiling as Mike gave her the “grand tour.”  He escorted her to her seat for the show and of course was quite attentive.  The  experience was all that Rose White had hope it would be.



“Thank you so much Duchess.  I had a wonderful time.  Everything was so amazing.”  Rose White gushed.    Matilde gave her a hug “I hear that you are to go on a small cruise with my nephew on his boat tomorrow.  How wonderful! I am certain you will enjoy it!   I have had lots of lovely trips on his sail boat!  (insert blatant teaser here)


Do come for breakfast before you go out.  I would love to have a moment to chat dear. ”


Rose looked at Mike, “I do not think it will be a problem?  Will it Mike?” Mike laughed, “Auntie you know I have a fully equipped galley on board and can handle breakfast.”  One look at his auntie’s beaming face and he caved, “Of course we will be there but do not make a big fuss!  Now Princess may I walk you to your car?”


“Until tomorrow then.”


“Hi Daddy.  Yes, I am fine.  I did have a wonderful time.  No, my silly Daddy I did not buy too much.  Just a little something for the girls and mom.  Oh and for Claudia too.”


“How did the boy behave?  A perfect gentleman, I hope. Oh here is your mother she is dying to get the phone. I will see tomorrow and hear of your day.”


“Oh sweet we miss you terribly.  I am so glad you had fun!  Now tell me all about it … I want to hear everything!”


“Oh mom .. it was magical. The dresses were exquisite and the music and the lights made your heart race …  I cannot wait to show you the dress I picked for you.  Oh and tell daddy Michael was indeed a perfect gentleman!  I am to have breakfast with the Duchess in the morning and we are going out on his sail boat before my return flight tomorrow night.”  Rose just rambled on and on.  Finally Snow stopped her and admonished gently, “Have fun but do be careful tomorrow.  We don’t know this boy at all.  So keep your head about you.  Now go get some sleep.”  “I will Mum,” a sleepy Rose replied “Good night,  I love you all dearly.  See you tomorrow.”
