Hey guys! So I know I said I won't update until I get reviews, but I realized that it doesn't matter if I get 0 or 100, I'm going to write one chapter a week.
Although 4 new chapters and 1 review is pretty suckish.
1 month later.
So the king had sent two more girls home last week. Savannah got to know her competition, an adorable 4 year old named Asia and a 13 year old named Rikki. She went to the village's library a few times and tried to learn the villager's language, but failed. Aaron was almost always spying on her.
Savannah woke up one morning and decided she was going to explore the village some more. She slipped on her only pair of jeans and headed out.
She walked slowly around the village. She saw little shops and farms all around. Everyone was looking at her like royalty. She continued wandering until she found a street with shabby houses on it.
She heard shouting. She ran towards the noise. She saw a man yelling at Asia near their house. She could only understand bits and pieces.
"You marry him! You bring shame family! Worthless like mother." Was all Savannah could understand. She didn't know who the man was, but Savannah wasn't going to let this happen. She looked around and found that the only thing useful was a rock.
She instantly picked it up and hurled it at the man's head. The man fell over. Asia quickly took the opportunity to run into the house.
"Fuck yeah!" Savannah started jumping up and down with satisfaction. She then realized that the man was waking up and quickly spends off into the forest nearby.
An old man watched in shock as the girl hurled a rock at Asia's father. Everyone knows that you should never invade on family matter, no matter how physical it gets. But the girl clearly didn't know that and even if she did, the man thought that she would have still thrown that rock.
"This is not happening. It can't, it couldn't. It's a one a million chance that that is her. But they look so alike, the act so alike. Leonard stop getting your hopes up, there is no way that that is her." The old man thought. Leonard sighed and hobbled back into his shack.
Savannah ran into the forest. She when she felt that she was in deep enough she slowed her pace down to a walk. She just wandered around looking for nothing in particular. She didn't care if she was lost, she rather be lost that marry that ugly king. She stopped and stared at the beautiful site before her.
A waterfall. Not very big, about 10 feet high. She looked down. It was about a seven foot drop from where she was standing. She saw a tree that hanged over the edge on both sides of the waterfall. Ropes were attached to them and they were hanged so someone could swing from rope to rope to get across.
"I think I found my new hideout!" Savannah thought aloud. She grabbed the rope and stepped off the edge. She started to swing to the other rope. She let go and made a grab for the other rope until she realized one thing.
She had no upper body strength what so ever.
She started to fall. She tensed up in preparation for impact when two hands pulled her into the waterfall.
She landed with a thud. Her back hurt like hell.
"Am I dead, did the Grim Reaper come?" She asked.
"No, are you okay?" A voice asked.
Savannah opened her eyes. Aaron was standing over her.
"Aaron! Where am I?" Savannah asked.
"You are in my hideout. We are behind the waterfall Savannah." Aaron said.
Savannah got up. She looked around. It had as much space as a bedroom.
"This is awesome!" Savannah said. She looked at Aaron. He was sitting down staring at the ground.
"What's wrong?" Savannah knelt down next to him.
"You are something different Savannah; no one has ever found this place." Aaron murmured. He looked up at her.
"I like you too." Savannah signed. Aaron's eyes widened and he smiled. He raised his hand and was slipping into her neck when he pulled away.
"We can't" He got up. "Why?" "You belong to the king! If you become his bride you will always think of me as a servant."
"I will never think of you as a servant Aaron, you are so much more than a servant to me." Aaron turned around. Savannah walked and hugged him.
Leonard was on his porch when he saw the girl from earlier walked with the kings servant. Their hands were intertwined and they seemed so happy.
"I don't think that is her, I know that is her." Leonard said. "It seems like history is going to repeat itself Rosetta." He sighed. He walked back to his shack.
