THE PRINCE MISTRESS
( Stuck between two prince )
I gasp as I slowly move my gaze up and she’s staring at me.
Oh my god. I just, she just… She just moved her leg and I wasn’t able to touch it.
I’m going to the dungeon?
I turn to look at Carly and she shakes her head at me with a sad look on her face and I shake my head, moving back as I slowly stand up and stare at the queen.
But why… Why would she do that?
I mean, she has no reason to do that.
Now that I think about it, she had no reason to have done it to others also.
I sigh before bowing and just as I’m about to move, I’m stopped right on my track.
“You are the girl that secretly rolled her eyes when you were been asked to kneel before your queen and your king.
Why do you think I would want such a disrespectful girl to serve me? ”
My mouth hangs open as all eyes turns to me.
She saw me do that?
So she’s really sensitive like Carly said.
I didn’t think she was watching.
“I’m very sorry ma’am. ”
I bow, staring down at my feet.
“It’s your Royal highness or my lady. ”
The man who brought us says and I turn to look at the queen one more time whom had a clear look that says she doesn’t like me on her face.
“My lady. ”
I bow, staring at the floor. Unsure of what to do, whether to move away and trying not to seem disrespectful cause I wasn’t asked to.
“What’s your name? ”
She asks and I gulp in.
There’s silence in the room and I think she’s probably thinking of the punishment to give me for being so disrespectful. Well, I don’t think there’s greater punishment apart from been thrown into the dungeon till god knows when.
“Good. One thing I hate is disrespect from my servants.
Another I hate is unfaithfulness. But the most attribute I hate is lying.
I’m glad you didn’t try to lie even after I just caught you.
Other would have strongly try to deny it, as if to say they didn’t do it but I’m surprised you admitted your mistake.
That’s something servants rarely do and for that I think you would serve truthfully so your struggle is pardoned. ”
She says and a smile creeps up to my face.
“Thank you, my lady. ”
I bow to her and she nods.
“But mind you, if that ever repeats itself.
You shall not be thrown into the dungeon.
You shall be beheaded. ”
My heart thump against my chest and I breathe out.
“Yes, my lady. ”
I bow again and I’m asked to move away.
I bow to the king and queen once more before moving to stand beside Carly.
“I’m glad you made it. Why would you even roll your eyes? ”
She says softly and I shake my head before turning to others.
Few more join those that shall we taken to the dungeon and a guard comes, taking them away while we are asked to kneel once again before the queen and the king.
“These are your servants. Lord kind, which quarter would you like me to place them into? ”
The man that brought us here says and I stare at the cold tile.
I hope we at least get enough food. I haven’t eaten for the past few days.
“The compound quarter has already been filled with many so bring them here to the total quarters.
Keep an eye on then and any caught trying to behave stupidly, bring them to me and I shall have them beheaded. ”
I don’t know why I suddenly feel like those words were directed to me.
“Okay Lord king. You heard him, stand up now. ”
We all bow to them before standing up and I breathe out as we all get into a straight queue like we did when we were coming here earlier also.
My head hurts so much and I feel so dizzy.
Probably due to my lack of food.
No, I can’t go unconscious.
I have to endure it.
“Are you okay?”
Carly asks in front of me and I nod, still staring at the cuffs on my wrists.
It still hurts badly.
“Yeah, I’m fine. Just feeling a little dizzy.”
I whisper and just as we reach the door, I didn’t notice anyone stopping cause my eyes are close, only to bump into a body.
To be continue…
