"Why are you sitting on my bed? Don't tell me you intend to lay beside me. I am not a child who needs to be watched to make sure they go to bed," Scarlet said, finding Ian's actions to be ridiculous. "Why should I even rest before dinner? I might become too tired to attend."

"I will wake you and bring your dinner here. The princess should understand why you are not present for dinner," Ian replied. 

"You are overreacting. I stopped working so that should be enough," Scarlet said, sitting up instead of lying down.

"Scarlet, think of the servants here who worry about how much you work. Just rest for a few minutes or an hour. Had I not shown up here, you would be sleeping in that terrible position. I will gladly tie you to this bed if I need to," said Ian.

"I would like to see you try," Scarlet replied, confident that was not going to happen. Sunny was going to fly before she allowed anyone to tie her here so she could sleep.
