Chapter 1-Taken


chains she was inpurple roseRunning through the broken branches of trees and burnt underbrush trying to find a place to hide. Only then can i stop to rest, but i can't now they are too close to finding me. THERE! My brain shouts at me, there was an old abandon building that looked like it could fall apart at any moment. I start to run faster in the direction of the place. Swoosh. I gasped as a bullet flew pass me. Crap, I tried to dodged another one as it came towards me but it got me in the shoulder. Next thing i know everything is going fuzzy and i blacked out.

When I woke up everything was blurry and out of place. I could hear voices around me but i didn't see anyone once my vision had cleared. Soon I felt the urge to throw up, yet I couldn't for some reason.

"Are you sure she is the one the king's want?" said a rough voice.

"Yeah she the one alright, I was with the king when he pick her out to me at the auction house" I heard a soft voice say.

I struggled to get off the chains they put me in and the blind fold I still had on. I stop as soon as I heard an opening of a door. Pounding of heavy shoes made the sound echo around the room. Stopping those who we're talking.

"Show me her" A strong but gentle voice said.

"But my prince, your father said..." His words were cut off as the king himself walked into the room.

"Now, Now my dear son what have i told you about barging in and demanding things that don't belong to you" The king said. Patting his son on the back.

The prince moved away from his father touch and said this"She is a person not an object. She don't belong to anybody".

The king now furious with his son stormed out of the room with the two men behind him. The young prince walked over and removed her blind fold, an stared into her ocean blue eyes as if they were the most beautiful thing he has ever seen.

"What is your name?" he asked her. Unlocking her chains and pulling her too her feet.

"My name is Lyric, may I have yours?" she asked.

"Oh mine is Viper" he said smiling at her.

Lyric started to get lost in her thoughts about Viper and where she was, all she knew was that it might take her awhile to get back home if she was somewhere where there are still kings and queens ruling.

Maybe I'm in a different country, no that can't be no can travel that far in a couple of hours especially  if they we're walking.
Is everyone okay back at home? Do they know I'm gone, what is happening?

As these questions spun round and round in Lyric's head.  She closed her eyes and fell asleep in the prince's warm embrace.
Seeing the sleeping girl in his arms Viper moved her onto the make-shift bed and laid a purple rose near the edge of the bed. Sighing he turned off the lights and walked out of the room, to see his father standing in front of him...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

Books17: This is my first book review.I found the story to be very intriguing.The beginning of the story starts and you are immediately thrown into wanting to know what will happen next, The action, or intrigue is established early, so there isn't the feeling of the story dragging on, or thinking about wh...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace. The dynamics between each character were interesting and kept things fresh and exciting, very much so that you would forgive it for not going deeper into the back stories of each character. ...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

zoheusher20: What more can I say? The writing style and little details drew me into the book and for the entirety of the story I was Juliet. I felt her turmoil and emotions and every trouble or triumph as they arrived. This story was very different and had quite a few little but unexpected twists that made it...
