Im waken by the rustling sound of paper. I sit up in my bed to see a man in the back of my room looking through the books on my shelf. I get up out of my bed holding a dagger in my hand, a gift from Liam, incase something like this happened again. I pointed it at the intruder and stood confidently, but my hands shook as I gripped the weapon in my hand.
”Intruder speak before I am to move to action, ” I say, and he stops dead and turns to see me standing there.
Hes unfazed by my action, witch I can admit, a girl in her nightgown is not a very menacing sight. However instead of fighting me, he places the open book he was holding down on my desk.
He bows to me, witch, is something you don expect a intruder to do, even if he breaks into the castle.
”My Princess, ” he greets.
”Who are you? ”
”Blue bound towards eastward sky, ” he speaks the code of James the Blue Ice River.
”You aren him, ” I say the shake in my voice is now very audible.
”I am not, but thats what I was told to say if I ever saw you, James was my brother. ”
”Who told you the code? ”
”Scarlet, ” he says, and I assume he speaks of Scarlet the Southern Red Flower.
She was the only one James spoke to as a friend, to the rest of us he was a warrior.
”I didn know he had family, ” I say, ” he said he would rather not speak of his past, so I respected his request. However that is not the point, why are you here? ” I ask firmly.
”To find out what happened to my brother, ” I look to the book he took off the shelf, the records for the seven warriors.
”I, well I thought they delivered the story to you when the body was returned. ”
”They did, but I don believe their story, I know better than anyone else that he would not be so easily defeated by a mere bandit. He was one of the seven, part of the group of the strongest warriors on this continent. ”
Im silent as I look at him, ” this is all you have come here for? ” I ask.
”Yes, I don mean to hurt or frighten you. I only wish for the truth. ”
I lower my weapon as I speak to him, ” you will not find it in that book. ”
”So I was right, it was a lie! ”
”It was not entirely false, but there are only three people who know. ”
”Who? ” He asks eagerly.
”All you need is I, the others I will speak off, but if I tell you, you must not repeat the story. ”
”Why? Don people deserve to know the truth. ”
”It is looked down to speak ill of the dead, we only put up the lie to protect his name. ”
”Why shall he be spoken ill of? ”
”Everyone in this kingdom will speak ill of a trader, ” I confess the reason for the lie.
”A trader to the crown, this must be the lie you tell me! ”
”Unfortunately it is not, not even my father knows of his crime against the crown. It was my intention to have him buried as the man he was, not the one he was persuaded to be, ” I tell him.
He looks thoroughly confused, ” Listen closely to what I say, for this story will never be repeated again, or known by another asides from myself, my guards, and now you. ”
—— One year ago ——
I get up from bed, today was my birthday, the day when I am allowed to do as I please with out being yelled about my duty. I wear a long dress in a deep blue, my favorite color. It had delicate spaghetti sleeves and I wore a cream silk scarf around my shoulders. I walk out my door to see Liam waiting outside my door. Liam the Candle in the Deep Wood, he was the green warrior of the seven, the second strongest warrior among the group. He was known for his skill in duel wielding swords, however in the castle he was known for his relentless flirting, and especially with me.
”My lady, ” he bows, the forest green cape that he wore on his back invaded his sides, ” looking radiant as ever, ” he compliments me giving a smug smile.
”Liam, since Im not obliged to my duty I can say, shut up, ” I answer playfully.
”Aw, my love, ” he jokes, ” you hurt me so with your harsh words, ” he stands up straight to walk beside me down the hall.
”Remember them well, because it will be another year until I can enforce them again. ”
”I think only for the next hour, I cannot stand a year without seeing you blush at my comments. Like you are now, ” he adds the last part a little after.
”I feel as though you use me to flatter yourself. ”
”What can I say, I am not spared the male pride. ”
”On the contrary, ” I comment, ” I think you possess more than the average man. ”
”I would say not, it is that you are my only target of affection, my dear. ”
”Again with the names Liam, ” I say looking up at him this time, ” I hope you can restrain yourself when it is time for the ball later today. ”
”Im sorry, Princess, it is only that I get distracted by your beauty, and it slips out now and then. ”
”You little Casanova, ” I give him a playful shove.
”Princess, ” he says stumbling only a step, ” quite a violent act you just committed. ”
”What, do you plan on arresting me sir? ”
”Maybe I must, it is against the law to attack a royal guard and especially the princesses guard, ” he smiles.
”Well youll have to catch me first, ” I say as I take of my shoes and start to run down the hall, my bear feet hitting the cold floor.
