I know it's been forever, but this is some-whatley long so I hope it makes up for lost time! :) Enjoy! :D
“Wake up, you insolent girl!” I woke up, my head snapping up to see one of the royal guards standing in front of me. And just my luck, it was the one I bit, yet again. Great, spectacular, it’s just my day! He was a very tall, well-built man, with the royal guard attire and the lock of hair tied to the side while the rest of the head was shaved. His features are very broad, and thick; a wide nose, small, dark eyes, the bottom lip larger than the top lip, and just quite large over all. He released the shackles, dropping me to the sandy ground. Grabbing my arm, he began to drag me towards the exit.
“Can I at least get up?” I asked, hissing in pain from the scratches and burns being caused from being dragged.
“Now what joy would that bring me?” He sneered at me, still dragging me down the long walkway/hallway that leads to the exit. I hissed as we left the dungeon, my eyes squinting from the sudden brightness after spending so much time in darkness. Do the gods hate me? Did I do something wrong? Biting an unpleasant guard I’m sure isn’t counted as a sin, or is it?
“Hurry up now,” He grumbled. I looked up at him dumbfounded, how in the world was I supposed to hurry up when I’m being dragged?! I sighed; I really am in no mood to be fighting right now. I looked up towards the sun, what the hell am I going to do? I kind of expected this and I didn’t as well. Prince Khenti has pursued me before, but I only either rejected him or hid from him. I didn’t expect him to kidnap me though! The sad thing is, I can’t do anything about this. He is my superior, my Prince. If I defy him, I will probably be severely punished, if not killed and my family along with me. My family consisted of my uncle, my aunt, and my cousins. My mother and father died from illness, and my brother left Egypt in pursuit of a better life and settlement somewhere else. I’ve never heard back from him since then. I love my aunt, uncle, and cousins dearly. They raised me and loved me as one of their own; I would never wish harm on any of them.
I turned my head to see the castle up ahead. It stood tall and proud on the bright, hot sand. The two towers cast long, dark shadows on the ground; cooling the steaming sand under its cool shade. Its front gates were guarded by at least five very large guards. The guard carrying me nodded at the other guards which I assumed signaled them opening the gates, because that is exactly what they did. We as in he walked in, with me alongside him, the beautiful castle. It seemed as if the whole place was glowing with magnificence. I couldn’t believe me eyes. This is where-
“Ouch!” I fell to the ground flat on my face. “I hit my face.”
“Good.” The guard replied. “It’ll do well for your face.”
“Now, now Djadao, be nice to my slave. It’ll be a shame to ruin that pretty face of hers. It will be hard to be near her if she had an ugly face.”
“How kind of you,” I scowled “your majesty.”
“Always.” Prince Khenti smiled at me. I tried standing up, but I was pushed back down to the ground before I could get up on my feet.
“You will remain bowing in the presence of your Prince!” Djadao yelled at me.
“And who says I have to! I never heard of that law! How come you’re not bowing?!” I yelled just as loudly.
“Because I said so.” Prince Khenti boomed. Shoot. I forgot he was still here. “And besides that, I like you in that position.” I looked down; I was on my hands and knees. Of course he would like me in this position. Only a perverted man would. “As a matter of fact,” He continued with a smirk. “I want you to remain in that position for the rest of the day when in my presence.” I looked at him as if he were crazy, like hell I will. He must have seen my shocked face, because he said. “If you disobey me, there will be severe consequences.” I have only heard of the punishments that are given, and they weren’t at all pleasing.
