Princess


Hey everyone!

     Ok, so I’ve deleted Undying Love from my short story list, and I have added a new one named Princess.  This is what I’ve got so far with it.  Hope you enjoy!

Princess
Greetings, my name is Angelica, and I am the Princess of a very small Kingdom. This story starts on the morn I learned of a great tragedy.
I was standing on my balcony after receiving the news, staining my blue dress with tears. I heard a soft knock on my door and one word “Princess?”
I turned around and saw Nathan, my personal guard, and most trusted friend on Earth. I walked to him, trying to control my shaking with little success.

I tripped on the stone floor and started to fall. Nathan was there in an instant, catching me before I could be hurt. As soon as his arms were around me, I broke down, crying like a child.

As he had when I was young, Nathan guided gently to my bed and held me as I cried. He rubbed my back, trying to calm me. Usually it worked, but today there seemed to be no help.

We sat there for a long time. Nathan let me ruin his tunic as I cried myself dry. I finally looked up at Nathan and said “I’m sorry. I did not mean to cry like that.”

Nathan smiled kindly at me and said “No need to apologize Princess. I understand, and anyone else would have the same reaction.”

I smiled sadly, “I know, but Nathan, my father is gone, my mother insane, and now my brother has been killed by the vampires. I am the only one left, I know nothing of war and little of politics.

“You know, as well as I, that the lords of the court will demand I take a husband.”

Nathan cringed slightly, “Yes, I know that Angelica.” then he muttered, “And you know I despise that thought.”

I stroked his hair, “Only if they make me choose from nobles.”

Nathan raised an eyebrow, “And if they leave the choice up to you?”

I kissed his cheek, “You know that answer already, Nathan.”

Nathan sighed, kissed my hair, and whispered, “You would willingly marry a vampire?”

I laughed, “A civilized one, yes. You, without a single thought to the contrary.”

Nathan beamed “I hold you to that, Princess.” he started kissing my hand, and wrist. He lingered at my wrist, inhaling deeply. “After so many years, I still find your scent almost irresistible.”

I smiled playfully, “Almost irresistible? I thought I was mouth watering?”

Nathan smiled, his eyes still closed, “You are, it’s just more controllable when I am better feed.”

 

Talk to you later!

  1. Interesting that you happened to use the names from certain characters from the Dreamer. 😉 You don’t happen to ship them irl, do you?

    • Yeeeaaah, I wasn’t even thinking of the Dreamer when I named Beatrice, I was reading Much Ado About Nothing. I am going to change her name though…once I think of something better…Nathan was on purpose though, because it’s my third fav guy name.

  2. I love your writing style genuinely enjoying this site.
