Introduction

The country is in turmoil. For five, long years, the Kingdom of Laric faced a plague that would cleanse its population of tens of thousands of the poor souls, effected by what had come to be known as 'The Wraith', due to the list of symptoms containing ghost-pale skin and a dark, black-reddish pigment around the eyes, as well as the eyes holding a shade of red to them as well. Four years into the plague, Laric experienced heavy drought that would cause famine in the population in the final year of the plague. The combination of hardships and tragedy in the population started to kindle riots from the unrest. Knights were assassinated in their sleep by their very own serfs; lords turn on each other in a fight to either over-throw or protect the king and his family.
Now, many rebel factions have already formed inside the capital city of Williston and plot against the royal family. To go anywhere, even inside the city, means possible danger. With a cloak and dagger lurking around every corner, it is only a matter of time before this powder keg explodes. This is where their story begins. The story of...
The princess and the keeper.

The boy takes the oars and sets one down on each side of the little boat before steadying himself and beginning the subtle dance of pull and push, grab and glide. With it, the boat responds in quiet movement. Through the dark, beneath the shadows of adjacent buildings, down the river they go. It would be a given that they are going to disembark and hide within one of the buildings until the two can escape but they just keep growing closer and closer to the wall. What lies there but the grate, allowing only water to pass? Pretty soon the grate is upon the two kids and it becomes evident that this is their destination...but why?
"This will just take a moment." The boy, oddly seems confident as he takes out...one of his knives...
Maneuvering the boat to turn so the side faces the grate as it approaches, the boy leans toward the metal and begins to push down with the knife. "Hold on..." He readjusts the knife after looking closer at the part he was touching and makes a deep scratch with it. Then he does so again with the bar below the first, then the next, then the top and the other side before sheathing the blade again.
What could a knife do to this water grate? What is the point? Still confident, the boy calmly mutters to himself, "Here we go...", as he lifts one of the boats oars and then thrusts it against the metal grate. And...
Nothing. Nothing. What was the point of even trying the knife?
The boy draws back the oar and sharply exhales as he thrusts it again. Once more, it does not budge, so he draws it back again and thrusts it once more. This time, though...a high-pitched creak sounds from the metal. Another thrust and the grate actually comes down. "Eeh! There we go!" The boy puts the oar back in the water and starts to move the boat once more, taking it through the gap in the metal part of the wall.
"Pre-cut the grate on the other side earlier with a saw. All she needed was a good-ol' push..." The boy looks around as the two exit out from under the large stone wall. "You're my sister", the boy says as he peers around at the world....


"If anyone asks, you're my sister, Darri, and I'm taking you on an early morning ride in my first boat. I finally saved up enough coin to get myself my first boat and I'm giving you a ride to show it off." It was a long pause between the sort of command and explanation. The possible meaning behind it turn the few seconds of pause into a few minutes.
"I am your lovable idiot of a brother, Fredrik."

The princess nods to the boy, and sighs. "Darri?" She thinks to herself, looking as if in deep thought. "But the townspeople know me." She wants to ask questions, but is not sure they are alone. So, she keeps to herself as the boy rows, and sighs.

Still dressed in her tomboyish out of pants and a tighter shirt, she thinks. "We look nothing alike, Fredrick. I think it's be best if we were a... Couple. "

[Fredrik, more Dutch variant of spelling but it don't matter, really X)]
"-Oh, buy me dinner first," the boy who calls himself Fredrik teases. "Sure, I suppose it would be better that way. In that case, we've known each other for three years now and have been dating for two. You~..." Fredrik looks down at himself and the boat. "...Aren't in it for the money, obviously."

She smiles. "Yes, love, we've been dating for two years." She kissed his cheek, as she saw an older woman strolling along a wooded path. "Money is none of my concern, alright? I love you." She kept up the girlfriend act as they went downstream, seeing random people. "I didn't know people stalked around like this. "

Fredrik blushes at the kiss, "Eh..u-uhm-", but finds himself interrupted with the talk of his supposed financial situation and the 'I love you'. Oh dear lord-this is too much. She's going to-, the dots connect inside of the boy's head as he rows along, ...think I'm just the best actor ever, that's right! Great timing!
"The region has a few nearby towns. Trade has its way of popping up around important cities so their's bound to be people for a bit." Fredrik looks around. "This river flows to a secluded place where we can regroup, though. We should be fine..."
Until then though, the boy proceeds to be just about the best actor ever as 'Darri' plays the girlfriend act and acting just like the low-income, nervous boy he is supposed to be. When they finally pass under trees for a few minutes, the boy finds a soft spot to disembark. It is muddy, and filled with bushes and other plant life, but it is better than a bunch of rocks in the way so he draws the oars back into the boat and jumps out to pull the boat up on the shore for the princess to get off safely.
"We should be fine for now. There's certainly going to be somebody hunting us but, for now, I think we can catch our breath..." The boy pauses for a moment..."My Lady"...and then turns around.
"My name is Gabriel."

"Alright, Gabriel. I'm your girlfriend, darri. " she smiles and takes his hand as they exit the boat. Her legs are a little wobbly from the boat ride and she's a little dizzy, but shakes it off as they leave the boat. "So, where are we headed, dear?"

The boy chuckles and speaks through a smirk left behind from the disturbance in his breath.
"We're alone. You can drop the act, you know."

"Just answer the question." She sighed, crossing her arms on her flat stomach. "Well? "

Gabriel pauses even more than he did the first time. "....Uuuuh~.."
In truth, he had not thought this far forward. He had figured, 'YEAH-I'LL KNOW EXACTLY WHAT TO DO WHEN I GET THERE-NO PROBLEM'. But now he is here...and it is kind of a problem. "Well~, y'see...I don't exactly know." The boy has a stupid smile on his lips; one that says 'please don't kill me.'

"You're amazing.." She sighed and ran a hand through her hair. "What do you suggest then, Prince Charming?" She walked and started Towards some bushes.

"Well, I figured this would be as good of a time as ever to catch up. You've been awfully obedient for someone who was just basically kidnapped...Not that I'm complaining."
To be honest, he had figured the princess would put up much more of a fight to leave than she did. Like...a lot more. But here she is now, following some random boy's orders to the tee, despite his look and lack of any sort of explanation.

"Have you never heard of Princesses that simply don't want to be or are craving for an adventure outside of the castle walls? "She smirked. "I've been dying to leave that castle. I love being royal, I just want to see what the world is like."
