Narrator: Katerina finished Royally Yours within hours. She sighed, tucked her Kindle close to her heart, founded a sect dedicated to the worship of Edward and then...things got slightly out of hand.

 

Prosecutor: YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.

Me: This can't be happening. This can't be happening. This can't be happening.

Prosecutor: How on Earth - 

Me: Excuse me for a moment, I think I'm having a panic attack.

Prosecutor: *mumbles* She is detained, handcuffed, facing serious charges, of course she's having a panic attack. But then, she could be thinking of a book. An Emma Chase book, if I had to bet.

Me: Did I hear Emma Chase?

Prosecutor: *reluctantly* Yes, I was wondering if she forced you to commit another felony.

Me: As a matter of fact she did.

Prosecutor: Of course she did. I know I'm going to regret this, but please, tell me what happened.

Me: I read Royally Yours - 

Prosecutor: Which one is it?

Me: It's the story of the first queen of Wesco, Lenora, and her sweeping love story with Edward Langton Richard Dorian Rourke. Also known as Dirty Edward.

Prosecutor: And?

Me: And it was freaking amazing. My chest swelled with all the glorious feelings; there were moments I couldn't fight the tears, and moments my entire body was burning thanks to the delicious chemistry and Edward's wicked ways. This man was a masterpiece, all masculine and sexy and -

Prosecutor: Yes yes I'm well aware of the male characters created by Emma Chase. I fail to see the problem, though.

Me: Well, Emma Chase has proved that she can write the most sensational, sweet, and all-encompassing modern fairytales, and I wanted to feel like a part of her stories, to get a glimpse of Lenora's world, so - 

Prosecutor: THAT'S WHY YOU ATTEMPTED TO STEAL THE CROWN JEWELS?

Me: I was going to borrow them.

Prosecutor: Borrow them.

Me: Yes, for a day or two, only to get into Lenora's mind, to grasp her responsibilities and sacrifices, her determination to stand up in a world dominated by men and make a change for those who can't! She is such a strong and empowering figure, compassionate yet firm. She is incredible!

Prosecutor: So let me get it straight, if Emma Chase wrote a book about a bank robbery, or hired killers, would you consider stealing or, I don't know, KILLING SOMEONE in order to feel closer to her characters? Are you serious?

Me: *gulps* I didn't say that. Of course, if the hypothetical killer had even half of Edward's sexuality and tenderness I would-

Prosecutor: For your own sake please stop talking! What am I going to do with you?

Me: May I suggest something? It is clear that this was not my brightest idea, and in view of the steam and the feelings that clouded my judgement, you could rule that I am incapable of criminal liability because, you know, fangirl and stuff.

Prosecutor: It has come to my attention that criminal law is not your forte, judging by your bar results...

Me: *shrugs* At least I passed. And how do you know that? Does the term personal data ring a bell?

Prosecutor: That's irrelevant. Let's make a deal. I'll read Royally Yours and see for myself whether it constitutes solid ground for your behaviour, and you'll stop breaking the law because of Emma Chase! It's the third time in a row!

Me: I can't make any promises. 

Prosecutor: *glares*

Me: But I will try.

Narrator: Reader, if the uptight, fun-police Prosecutor sat down and read it (and - spoiler- he loved it), so should you.
