Charlie had been instructed many times to remember that.
Maya, it turned out, had few friends. But one of them happened to be another princess who was visiting the country for a few weeks, and was throwing a grand party that Maya had found herself invited to.
She didn't want to go. Princess Clarina was of the opinion that, as a princess, she was automatically better than everyone else. She looked down on everyone, including fellow royals. And she was always enthusing about the rich and handsome husband she’d managed to secure for herself.
Maya hated her, but Clarina seemed to think they were best friends and had insisted she attend the party.
“Bring your husband!” She’d enthused. “You do have one, right?”
“Of course I do!” Maya had snapped in response. “And he’s very charming too!”
“Oh really?” The tone in Clarina’s voice was disbelieving. “Then I lo

Charlie, who had slipped away into the expansive back gardens after the fiasco in the lab, glanced up at the sound of Maya’s voice and forced a weak smile.
“Y…Yeah, I’m okay”.
She smiled. “Good! Then come inside and watch this with me, okay?”
She was holding a DVD – some kind of romantic comedy that Charlie had no interest in whatsoever. He hadn’t even realized that princesses watched movies, which was really stupid when he thought about it. Princesses were people too, after all. There was no reason why they wouldn’t want to watch a movie every now and then.
“Come on”, Maya held out her hand. “It’ll help us relax. Professor Gray’s agreed not to do anymore tests today”.
Charlie really didn’t want to watch it, but he took her hand anyway.
He couldn’t bear to be the one to wipe that smile from her face.

He sat encased within her arms, thinking about how she smelled like strawberries and trying not to blush too hard. Should he hug her back? He wasn’t sure. He couldn’t even remember what had led to this. An accident perhaps?
Faintly, in a distant corner of his mind, he had an image of Professor Gray hooking him up to several machines designed to monitor his vitals. Yes, that was definitely something he remembered. And the professor had asked him to do some magic.
He frowned. Something had gone wrong. One of the machines had shocked him and in a panic he’d lashed out at it. There was fire and smoke, the professor desperately trying to calm him down while putting out the flames. And then Maya had appeared.
The fire was out now. It had been rather small in the end, contained to just the one machine, and little damage had been done. Maya was whispering soothing words in his ear,
30 Day Challenge: Day 1 - Holding HandsProfessor Gray, anyone would say, was a lovely man. He was kind and considerate, highly understanding of everyone’s needs, always smiling. He’d been teaching Princess Maya since she was young, and always been good to her. That was perhaps the only reason she didn’t immediately turf out the young man he brought back to the mansion late one afternoon.30 Day Challenge: Day 1 - Holding Hands by kalsagnia
He was a scruffy looking thing, uncomfortable in his new surroundings.
“He’s incredible!” Professor Gray gushed. “Oh Maya, if only you’d seen what I’d seen!”
Maya ran a hand through her chestnut coloured hair and gave a smile that didn’t quite reach her eyes. Professor Gray was too excited to notice.
“Magic, Maya!” He exclaimed, clapping his hands together.
She raised one delicate eyebrow. Magic was a rare thing in this world, not many people were born with it. Even she, with her background of royalty and power, could not use it. And yet this young man (a runaway,
