Here's a little background and some catch -up info: As you may remember, Tallulah was educated in NY, then abroad. At Zolandia University. There she was a friend of Princess Victoire and lover of Prince Victor. Their love was a secret one and Tallulah knew it would never last. Later he would run away from the crown, marry Miss Fear and impregnate her with Dani (who they gave up for adoption). Tallulah gave up any dreams of Victor and moved on. But she never forgot the magical connection they had.
Tallulah often wakes up early to head down to the farmer's stand in Grandville Park.
"Good Morning Miss Wilde."
"Good Morning, teenage person. Have you any leeks today?"
On the other side of Grandville Park are Prince Victor and his manservant Mr. Bates (sorry couldn't help it. I had Lord Grantham in my head the entire time I was posing Prince Victor. And if you don't get that reference, honey! We need to talk.)
"Your Serene Highness," Mr. Bates begins. "Do you not think it a bit dangerous for you to be out and about?"
"Why Bates, it is a fine day out and 5 am besides."
"I'm tired of being cooped up in that hotel. It's time to see this town. I think I'll get some fruit from that fruit stand."
"Sir, please. I beg you to let me do that for you."
"I'll not hear of it, Bates. I'm certain I can order fruit for pity's sake."
"You there! Girl. I'll have one of your lovely apples."
"Pardon me sir!" Tallulah snaps.
"Gasp! Victor, can it be you?"
Tallulah drops into a curtsy. "Your Serene Highness, forgive me."
"None of that here Lula. I'm in hiding."
"We were never here."
"Lovely town, Grandville. Have you lived here long?" The Prince asks.
"Victor, what are you doing here? You know Zolandia is in an uproar over your disappearance. They don't want your sister on that throne."
"I'm here to find my daughter. Now I've found her and she won't speak to me."
"And you are here until she does?" Tallulah asks.
A flush creeps up Tallulah's face.
"Say you'll have dinner with me tonight, Lula."
"It would be improper. You may have silly dreams of abdicating, but you are still the ruler of Zolandia. You can't afford to be with a woman like me. With a family history as sordid as mine."
"I don't care about that Lula. I never did. And it is no silly dream. I mean to do it."
"Well I suppose I'd better make dinner at my house. Since you're in hiding and all. Just...leave Mr. Bates at the hotel."
