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...

Nanasha: I thought I'd written a comment on this story, but for some reason, I guess it didn't go through. Anyway, so this story is intensely addictive.
