Unexpected Circumstances - Summary - Isabella is a handmaid to Princess Jessica, Daughter of King Aro. When a knight from a neighboring kingdom wins his choice of bride, Sir Edward bypasses the princess and claims the handmaid instead. Isabella suddenly finds herself married to a man she does not know, and is tossed into the middle of political plots and scheming nobles. Her life is further turned upside down when she is unable to give her husband the one thing he must have.

India Rose made this banner and posted it over on the Unexpected Circumstances Twilighted Forum Thread. I thought it was so gorgeous (and I'm a fan of Waterfords in general), I'm going to write this little scene into an upcoming chapter - probably chapter 18-20.
Unexpected Circumstances- This is going to be a long, complex story, which will probably end up being 40+ chapters. It's got a long ways to go yet!
