( ooc - wanted to get something going and explore the kingdom now that we are starting over )
It had been a long, cold, dark, and unforgiving winter. It seemed although it would never end. The harshest winter that the kingdom had seen in a very long time had arrived early destroying about a third of the crops that were not harvested in time. Everyone, including the royal court, was feeling the effects of the early and freezing winter. The trading and markets were also suffering from the series of bad storms that blanketed the kingdom and surrounding areas in think heavy snow. It was as if the gods themselves where punishing them for some unknown reason.
It was however a peaceful time, as the cold weather and harsh storms kept away unwanted trouble, well expect for the uneasiness and arguments of the people who lived within the kingdom. Everyone was starting to get a little cranky as they would have to stay inside much of the day to fight off the bitter cold and howling winds of winter.
Thankfully just as the whole kingdom was about to snap and go crazy, the mounts of snow started to slowly recede. Spring was finally in the air, and the queen could feel the ice and snow melt into water. She was probably one of a few people to notice the slight difference between winter and spring even if it was just a change in the wind. She could tell that the white fluff was melting into water that she was tuned in to.
Kiara was already in a better mood, despite the hills of snow and frigid temperature that would make anyone still believe that it is still winter. She made her way to the dining hall to meet with her husband, the king. Walking in, she smiled. "Ahh, there you are, my dear." She said happily as she walked over to him, kissing his cheek.
