Her response was barely audible in his head. "You must obey him," she replied weakly, making his exhausted eyes slowly crack open. He felt a massive pain in his chest as he took in her eyes. Her eyes weren't their usual large, sun-kissed gold. They seemed dimmed, and were red and swollen from crying.
He hissed under his breath. "No," he told her firmly, shaking his head rapidly. He spoke out loud this time. "I'm done obeying."
She clenched her jaw as if pain erupted in some place of her body. His eyes raked her skin to help her in any way he could. "Kill me... and then kill him," her soft voice echoed in his skull. His hands shook this time as he straightened his back and looked down at her. Her words stung. She was willing to leave him so easily? He couldn't live without her precious heart, his bed would not be warm enough to be comfortable, his company not has joyful as she made him feel every day of his life.
Did she not know that?
"GUARDS!" the King boomed, standing up from the thrown. "IT IS TIME TO FASTEN THE PIECE OF FILTH TO THE TABLE!"
The court became animated and began to hit their heavy boots against the wooden floors of the room, signaling the execution was near.
"NO!" the young man screamed, protectively moving his body around the girl.
His blue eyes sparked with electricity as he eyed each of the guards. He threw himself at the first one, knocked him down and riped the man's throat out with his teeth.
Another guard fisted their hands in his hair and he blindly kicked behind him, got a hold of the new attacker and twisted his neck. He whipped his head around to face three more guards, all armed with swords.
For a minuscule of a second, he actually debated whether to end his life because once she was gone, he was gone with her.
His mistake was his pause in thought. A man from behind him grabbed him from around the neck, and the others and clawed his arms and legs so they could hoist his body up and restrain him from the table. Even in his weak form he could manage to rip apart anyone who touched his bonded female. His fangs lengthened and he let out a ferocious roar as the slaves tied down the girls arms and legs in a coercive manner, leaving scratches along her arms and ankles when she trashed slightly on the table.
The bulky men who restrained the blue-eyed men dragged him to the table and held him in his place, pressed against the slap of stone. The one guard took out a black whip and tested it in the air as the rest of the men hauled the dead body away and stood along the side of the walls, barricading him from any exit.
Nobody would leave until he killed this girl.
The King's teeth retracted as he barked, "I will not ask you AGAIN! KILL HER OR I WILL!"
The court erupted in screams of excitement and threw objects into the execution area. Metal cans clattered onto the wooden floors and tomatoes spattered along the young mans naked back.
The King snapped his fingers and the young man let out a yelp as the whip connected with his skin, leaving behind a welt. When he grit his teeth and continued to stare into the King's dark eyes, refusing to obey the whip slashed his back several more times.
The girl whimpered at the sight of him in pain and began to cry.
"KILL HER! KILL HER!" the crowd cheered.
"YOU TREASONOUS BASTARD! KILL HER AND BE REDEEMED!" a single man called out, allowing others to join in and shout out discourteous remarks.
The young man locked eyes with the girl and once again felt a tear in his heart. Her eyes were glued open to his and years flowed freely down her cheek. "Rid of my wrong," her voice whispered into his mind. "Our love shan't die at this point in time, nor ever."
When he saw in the corner of his eye the King move down three steps towards the girl he lowered his mouth to her neck, hovering over the skin. Her heartbeat soared, rattling the skin ever so slightly where he observed curiously. He shut his eyes, beginning to sweat profusely as he tried to bring his head back up and continue to fight for her life.
