We all stood frozen as he looked over us. Lucius was the first to thaw and quickly bowed to his father. As he stepped in front of his sister, he softly says " What are you doing here, Father? You never come to this part of the castle." The king narrows his dark red eyes as he strikes his son, forcing the young prince to his knees. I watch the king as the air around him grew dark as a starless night. He looked over him saying "I heard we had a guest and that you hid them here instead of the prison. " I freeze and looked to Lucius in amazment. While he slowly got up from his knees, all I could do was think " He risked the king's anger just to keep me from the prison. Maybe my blue eyed boy is in there." Suddenly the king grabbed my hair and yanked me back, causing a searing pain over my skull. I bite my lip as i struggle not to make a sound. I freeze over as I get stuck into his red eyes. They swirl with gleeful maliciousness as he looks over me. His voice like dark chocolate and misery, the king whispers " So young yet so full of hate and pain. You should have broken long ago yet here you stand. I bet you would shove that pretty little flower against my heart and kill me in seconds." He shoves me to the ground as he power lashes over me , leaving bloody scratches over my arms. When I cover them up, he looks to his children. I watch in a dazed amazement as /spanspan class="s2" style="font-size: 16pt;"Belice kneeled and healed my wounds, leaving behind nothing more than three white lines. The king looks to his son, smirking as his eyes glowed. When his power spread through out the room and his voice booming, the mighty king shoves us all flat on our butts. He says " This maiden will live in this castle and play the part of a slave. My heir and son, worthless as he maybe , shall be her owner till the end of her days. If either of you try to disobey my order." He stops suddenly as a bloody thirsty grin appears on his face. Slowly looking over us, he says " I will take delight in making you wish for death in every moment." I shake in rage as both the prince and I raise up and our powers fill the air. My anger freezes as I see a quick flash of fear in the king's eyes before it is smothered in pure fury. His power lashed out and slammed both of us into the wall. It shreds our skins leaving our arms and legs bloody messes. We fall down, panting and shaking in agony. The king looks to us coldly saying " Never forget kids that in this world, I will always be the one who decides fate." He storms out , his power and the darkness following him. I swallow my pain as I slowly sit up. Belice helps her brother up and carefully heals him. I watch as the bruises and cuts seal up and a strange need to care for him fills me. Reading the emotion off my face, Lucius groans saying " Don't worry about it, assasian. Part of my father's ruling is a spell that makes you feel like you must care for me." I slowly whipe the blood from my mouth and I slowly smile, ignoring the pain. When they look at me as if I'm mad, I giggle and says "So thats what a hug from the king feels like." They look at each other and me before we all burst out laughing./span/p
