Queens don’t cry, and if they did they would never do it in public. It was something that had been drilled into Angeline Robart’s head since she was old enough to understand emotions. Reserved happiness, controlled anger, and limited frustration were allowed, but never sadness. For a queen, every emotion a human being was capable of expressing was restricted to a spectrum of reserved display. It was expected. Extreme emotions should only be allowed in appropriate settings and in the presence of the few people in her life that could be trusted. This meant that at any given time Angeline Robart was nothing but a pent-up vessel of nerves and anxiety; she didn’t trust anyone.
