A Princess who was Promised @thecourier7
Anu riah was still stuck travelling with Elia and the real children of Rhaegar, or at least the True Aegon. She had expected to be executed for impersonating a royal along with the false Aegon, but so far they were alive. Neither she nor her accomplice had been so much as scolded. Even so, most of the conspirators she knew of and who were traveling with them had been executed by Dornishmen.
As she waited to pass the time she looked to her only companion. The strange bird Myriah had found was growing fast. It looked like an eagle, but with crimson feathers decorating its back and wings and golden ones on its belly. It's tail was decorated with Azure feathers. It also sang louder and more beautiful songs than other birds she had encounteredThe sight of it brought attention from villagers and soldiers alike. Some of the most frequent visitors were Oberyn and a Maester who had travelled with them. She had never seen a bird like it before, and neither had the maester who travelled with them nor Oberyn, who had also trained as one before he grew bored of it. The two of them constantly argued about what it was. The master claimed it was a type of eagle or that they had not recorded yet. Oberyn said it was a Phoenix, a magic bird from old Valeria. The maester would laugh, and claim it was impossible, and that they didn't exist. "If they did," the maester explained. "They went extinct centuries before dragons did." "What else could it be?" "There are many species of bird that we don't know about. Perhaps this is one of them." Arguments like this happened frequently, and Myriah didn't know what to think. All she knew was that the bird was loyal to her. It seemed to understand her commands but was content to sit on its perch and sing. Something else she had noticed about it was that it avoided the dragons travelling with the trueborn Targaryns. Despite this, the Dragons often seemed drawn to it like moths to a flame. Her bird, on the other hand, went insane around them. Myriah didn't understand it. The bird was fine around Elia and Aegon, but around the dragons it would scream bloody murder and attempt to fly away. Something about the dragons set the poor thing off. It was as if they valued it for some forgotten purpose. "Maybe my bird has something to do with Dragons." thought Myriah. She did not know much about Phoenixes aside from the name and they allegedly died before dragons. If they were related to dragons, it deserved a name befitting one. After a few minutes of debating with herself, she settled on Anu. It was short and easy to remembe
