Elaine stopped her tireless pacing, coming in right behind Isabella was Luke. "Luke have you found something?" She asked, knowing that was what the boy was doing, she looked at Annabelle and Sebastian who were still sitting on the bed, Sebastian gave up a while ago on trying to get her to go to sleep since he wasn't getting anywhere with it. She went to the window nervously fiddling with the end of her nightgown sleeves, she turned hearing the door open, Gabriella slipped in. "Am I interrupting?" Elaine went over to her taking her hands. "You were supposed to leave with Kyla, Gabby." She said Gabriella slipped a note into her hand. "We were going to leave, but we went into our rooms to get a few things and found notes, each on the same, in the same hand, there was even one in Annabelle's and Gwen's room. It says that if any of you Ladies are taken from the castle they will be killed. It also congratulates you on your Engagement to Sebastian. Its almost as if someone is playing a game with lives, to scare you." Elaine looked at the letter. "Thats because someone is..." Elaine replied handing the letter to Luke so he could look at it. "None of you are to leave the castle for a safe house, and you aren't to leave the castle without a guard, whoever this is has made a point that they wont fool around...The threats aren't as empt as we thought."

Annabella sinks to her knees where she had gotten up to walk over to the fire. No leaving the castle, it was as if she were trapped again. "Lady Elaine, we can't possibly stay in the castle, and we can't walk the grounds with the multiple hiding places... Something must be done, have someone look for the source. Young Luke is doing wonderful by himself already, but I feel I could be of assistance too... I could walk the halls not as a one of your ladies or even go through the walls, but sitting here and waiting for the next message is hardly the way to go," Annabella says tiredly as she moves to stand walking forward. She could get what she needed to talk to servants without risking herself like the lady would want.


Isabella rushes towards Elaine's room, her dress, hands, and hair dripping blood from where they had gotten splashed or splattered in some way. She knew she must look awful as she went ahead and barged into the room of the queen Elaine and stated, "lady Gwen is safe. She's with Jason in her rooms now and we've gotten the blood to stop and the wound wrapped. She'll be fine with rest," Isabella finishes as she enters the room suddenly really tired. She was the youngest here besides Luke yet she had just helped staunch blood flowing from ones neck as a princess... Her father will be outraged... "Ah, did I interupt something?" Isabella asks as she sees the gaunt faces of her relatives and her friends. "May I see this?" She asks as she bends over to pick up one of the fallen pieces of paper. "Ah... this isn't good... at all... what's the plan then? To keep the ladies safe that is?" She asks as she walks in careful not to touch anything with her bloodied self.

Sebastian looked at them all. "We will just have to keep going on as if nothing happened. We cant let this person know its bothering us, or scaring you, Elaine. We will heighten security which will be expected, I will stay with Elaine, that way she will be safe. Her ladies will keep their guards outside their rooms, but a guard will be with them at all times if they are leaving the castle. We have to look out for each other, and protect each other. This man will be caught." Elaine looked at him. "And what of our wedding?" Sebastian glanced at her. "It isn't for months now, we have time." Elaine sat back down on her bed. "We go on as things were before, all I ask, is that all of you are careful. I'd prefer not to have a repeat of tonight." Elaine looked at Annabelle. "I know you dont like being locked up, but please dont leave the castle unless you have to, it would bring me peace of mind knowing all of you are safe." Sebastian tucked some of her hair behind her ear. "You should really get to sleep." Elaine smiled a little. "I dont think I'll be getting any sleep, your free to go if you would like though.

Annabelle turns away and moves to the door. "I'll go check up on Lady Gwen," Annabelle says with a slight curtsy. "Lady, Princess, Prince," Annabelle says, pausing on each name only slightly before leaving the room. Closing the doors behind her, Annabelle leans against them for a second to hold herself up before moving on towards her room. Her head swam as she walked down the hall quickly, catching sight of the guards in front of Gwen's doors, though she doesn't move to enter. Instead, she walks past, her gaze set on her own room. "I'll try to stay safe the best I can, but they'll come anyway," Annabelle whispers as she enters her room and closes the door, moving towards the bookshelf in her room. Next to that was a compartment in the wall that led to a secret passageway. Grabbing a candle, Annabelle moves quickly, going towards the only place she could learn anything from. They needed to find Gwen's attacker if Lady Elaine would be safe. Not only does Annabelle want her friend to be safe, but so do so many other people... With that, Annabelle makes her way to the kitchens.

Annabelle enters the kitchen soon enough and sees a girl she knows by the name of Anita. "Anita, please come here," Annabelle whispers. Anita looks up in shock before she rushes over, abandoning her task. After a few minutes, the girl nods and gives Annabelle a worried but reassuring nod before moving to go back to work allowing Annabelle to start making her way back to her rooms, hoping she hadn't forgotten the route.



Isabella looks to the door before looking to Elaine. "I'll make sure lady Annabelle doesn't get in trouble Lady Elaine, at the moment though, I'm going to give her privacy to get out of that dress as well as I need to get out of this one if I'm to have any hope of sleeping or being able to look at Jason again. I'll just be going, as should you Luke," Isabella says as she leaves the room next, trying hard to not smear the doorknob with blood.

Isabella makes her way to her rooms where she then gets into a bath, she needed to get the blood off her skin, to feel clean... The entire story was sad, depressing even. After a while, Isabella gets out and her ladies get her ready for the night so she could have a chance to sleep though she knew she wouldn't whatsoever.

Sebastian pulled the covers over Elaine when she finally fell asleep, he looked at his half brother. "Isabella is right Luke, you should go get some sleep. I will stay with Elaine." Sebastian sat on the bed careful not to sit on Elaine's feet, she had only been asleep for maybe and hour before she began to stir, nightmares filling her sleep. Sebastian looked at her gently touching her shoulder, her eyes shot open and she took in a huge breath startled looking at him. "Its just a bad dream go back to sleep." Elaine sat up, she knew she wouldn't be able to get back to sleep. "I wont be able to, you should sleep though, I'll be alright, I'll wake you if anything happens." Sebastian moved to the other side of the bed lying down. "We will catch him." Elaine smiled kindly. "I know."


Elaine looked over at Sebastian who was still sleeping, she had already been dressed and readied for the day, but she instructed the others not to wake him. She walked over to him pulling the covers up slightly gently kissing his cheek before leaving the room, she met up with the others for Breakfast. "I'm not very hungry." Elaine said looking at them, she sighed seeing the look Isabella gave her. "I'll eat later. I promise." She looked at the food before turning to look at Isabella again. "Besides, I want to get out riding as soon as possible."

"Ah, that's right, riding is my ticket out of going to court," Isabella says realizing what Elaine's words said a second after hearing them. "Bu you really must eat something or I won't take you riding as you won't have the energy to stay on the horse," Isabella says with a seemingly reluctant shrug. "Hurry and eat something will you?" Isabella asks as she sits back, sipping from a tea cup filled tea. "I hate this stuff yet I drink it for some reason," She admits to nobody in particular as she looks down into the liquid.


Annabelle sits up in bed, hair still up and her shirt still on instead of a nightgown. She had been up all night wandering the passageways, looking for a way to hear anything that might be of assistance but failing ultimately. "Oh no," She whispers as she sits up and quickly gets into a dress that could be put on by herself. Annabelle doesn't even take her hair down as she rushes for the door and runs down the hall on her way to Elaine's room. She opens the door to see Sebastian in the bed instead of Elaine and can't help but gasp slightly before regaining her senses and closing the door quietly before rushing towards the room where breakfast was served. She entered just as Isabella finished contemplating her tea, rushing to take her seat with a quick curtsy. "My apologies Lady Elaine and Princess Isabella, I was just so tired from the events last night," Annabelle says which was true completely.

Elaine took a sip of her tea. "It's quite alright." Elaine replied she took a small bit of some of the food that was sitting in front of her. Gabriella looked at Elaine. "Did you and Sebastian get any sleep last night?" Elaine looked at her friend. "I got a little bit of sleep, Sebastian is still sleeping in my room. I didn't have the heart to wake him." She finished a little more of my breakfast. "There I ate something, can we go now?" Elaine asked Isabella standing up, she made sure that she was already in the proper dress for riding, so she didn't have to change. "Annabelle, if Sebastian comes looking for me, can you tell him I wen riding with Isabella; and please stay safe, both of you, no wandering about by yourself." Gabriella gave Elaine a reassuring smile. "We wont."

"Of course. Enjoy yourselves today," Annabelle says with a smile as she looks down at her plate where she hadn't eaten anything either though she was hungry. Standing again, Annabelle looks to Isabella who does so as well. "Well then," Isabella begins, "off we go, I'm ready for a day of riding," she says with her hands rubbing together. Isabella was not one to wear dresses during rides as they always got in the way, instead, even with everyone's disapproval, she wore slacks and a collared shirt like what Sebastian might wear on a casual ride. "Come on then, I'm sure James is already waiting for us. I alerted him of our riding today early this morning," Isabella says unable to keep her voice entirely steady as she thought if the stable hand. "Off we to," she comments offering her arm to Elaine as she walks from the room.

Annabelle looks to Gabriella. "I don't believe in sitting around and just waiting for the next strike... But I don't wish to go against Lady Elaine... Either way, would you care to accompany me to the kitchens?" Annabelle asks as she moves towards the door. "I asked someone there if they could search for someone with scratches on their face as Gwen described doing and all the castle employees should have gone through the kitchen by now," Annabelle explains softly, her fear not quite where it should be about this attacker. This was her castle she grew up in, she knew it, yet it was still terrifying as she was sure that it wouldn't keep her safe like she would it. If Sebastian were to come asking for Lady Elaine, well... Annabelle was to treat him as she would any other noble now, respectfully and kindly though not quite open. She did that to all nobles and aristocrats except Isabella who always seemed to be different in some form or another.

Once Elaine and Isabella got out of the Castle Elaine looked around lifting up the front of her dress so she could run without tripping. "Come on!" She smiled excitedly starting to jog, she was still frightened, but she knew she wouldn't get anywhere if she kept thinking about it, she needed to forget, even if it was for a little while.


Gabriella nodded following Annabelle. "I worry about Lady Elaine. She was so Distraught last night, this is really getting to her, and we havent been here that long." They turned the corner into the hall that lead to the kitchen. "She spends so much time worrying about all of us she doesn't take the time to worry about herself, who she should be worrying about, and its bringing back memories of her parents, I can tell, its in her eyes the way she stands, she's so uncomfortable, and so uneased...We really need to find who did this and stop it, for our sake, and for Elaine."

"Well, this is much more fun than riding with Sebastian. I'm the one who has to do that to get him to move," Isabella laughs as she follows Lady Elaine, her pants feeling comfortable for all the times she has used them. Upon reaching the stables she doesn't see James right away and turns to say something to Elaine while backing up when she runs into James causing him to stumble and both to fall, one on top of the other.

"I... hello James," Isabella says, her surprise not allowing her to move. The brown haired fellow smiles up at Isabella, his voice more steady. "Princess Izzy, what a surprise," He says with a smile making Izzy blush for whatever reason as she roles of him, allowing James to stand. "Your horses are ready if you'd like to get on your way. Your highness lady Elaine, I readied the horse you had been looking t yesterday when you visited if that's all right. Would you like assistance?" He asks politely as he moves to help Isabelle mount though she could do it by herself easily.



Annabelle nods. "Yes, and it is very unnerving. Really it's not like we pose a threat to anybody," Annabelle says as she enters the kitchen, feeling somewhat awkward with the nice yet simple dress. Anita comes over, her hands occupied by a small bag she passes to Annabelle. "Here's the last item you asked for Annabelle. Please do be careful. Also, there are four maybe five men with scratches on their face, I don't know which one it is though. There was also two girls with them but I don't quite believe they could hold Lady Gwen long enough to do the damage," Anita says, her explanation crisp and clear. "Who are the men?" Annabelle asks quietly giving Gabby an encouraging smile. Anita sighs. "An assistant cook, one of the king's guards, one of the queen's guards, a little serving boy who is innocent, and the librarian's assistant. The girls are both serving girls like we were," Anita finishes with a smile. "I must get back to work if you don't mind. Good luck," She says with a smile before moving to go back to work.

"And there we have four possible people," Annabelle says with a nod as she moves to leave. "Gabby, please, come with me to check up on Gwen before we go to see the assistants and guards," Annabelle asks quietly, concealing the bag from others by putting it behind her back.

Isabella gives a pleading look to Elaine to stop acting like an older sister before thanking James. James nods and turns to tend to some horses. Izzy couldn't help but think she saw a tint of red on his cheeks too. With that Isabella rides from the stables towards the country. "Must you bring up my blushing? For some reason I can recieve and control any aristocrat using what he calls my womanly charm yet I get somewhat tongue tied and nervous around James..." Isabella says in wonder at herself as she rides easily, loving the feeling of riding.



Annabelle nods. "Yes, but the faster Sebastian and Elaine marry, the better," Annabelle says softly more to herself than to anyone. "You really shouldn't be out of bed Gwen, you're weak from last night. Perhaps you and Gabby should go get you something to eat. The princess did say that you needed your strength," Annabelle says with a nod. Bringing out the bag, Annabelle opens it to allow the girls to see what's inside. "I asked my friend Anita to find me a knife justin case someone attacks Elaine and one of us around to protect her. We couldn't do much damage considering we don't know how to use it, but that in itself is definitely a scary thing for attackers. She'll get me two more for both of you as soon as possible, but I must take this to go see those men," Annabelle says with a nod before giving a slight reassuring smile and walking off towards the library.

"I was just teasing." Elaine smiled playfully. "Its not a bad thing to blush. Have you seen me around your brother, my cheeks are almost always red." Elaine thought about Sebastian for a second. "I wonder what rumours are going about, since Sebastian was sleeping in my bed this morning." Elaine sighed. "Or maybe they are all talking about the wedding preparations, The cake, the dress, the party. I feel like there is so much expected of all of us, not just Sebastian and I. Who's to say making the date sooner will stop all of these attacks anyways?" She took a deep breath calming herself again. "If anything, they will become more often than they already are, to stop the wedding."


Gabby led Gwen back over to her bed. "You must rest, if not for your sake then for Elaine's. You dont want to worry her anymore than she already is, do you?" She pulled the blankets back up over her.

Annabelle was feeling tired, her head was spinning and in all honesty, she would rather be in bed than anywhere else, but it doesn't matter what she wanted as long as Elaine wanted something else as she would do anything for her friend. Upon arriving at lunch, Annabelle felt ravenous though she couldn't eat as such as it hurt to swallow. Upon Isabella entering, Annabelle gives a slight smiles in greeting as she had food in her mouth.

Isabella hadn't changed and looked rather angry as well as flushed. There was a piece of hay in her hair as well as all over her back and Annabelle didn't quite know what this meant. "Talk about my brother kissing you all you want. I still need to think over what just happened to me with my lo-... nothing," Isabella says turning even reader if that was possible as she dropped into her seat ungracefully and begins eating like Annabelle wanted to.

Elaine shifted in her seat uncomfortably, she knew she wasn't getting out of it now. "Well...um...It was...ah..." She stopped realizing she was stuttering which was odd for her, she was never short of words, she though about it for a moment before beginning to speak again. "It was gentle, kind, and sincere." she finally said knowing her cheeks were probably as red as roses, she looked at Isabella. "Izzy, you have a piece of straw in your hair." she pointed out trying to avert the conversation, but not directly Izzy's way, as if almost saving the day Sebastian walked in. "Mind if I join you?" He asked Elaine, she shook her head and had one of the servants bring another chair sitting it beside her for Sebastian, Sebastian sat down stealing a quick kiss from Elaine before looking at his sister as if to prove a point. "Sister, you have a piece of straw in your hair by the way." he said with a small smile before changing the subject. "Father has the wedding plans out again, mother came in and I though it would be best if I got out of there before the yelling started. They have been fighting about something to do with your dress, and about almost everything else." Elaine put her glass of water down. "At least you dont have to sit through the fitting, or sit through your father rambling on about things and how they are going to be perfect for hours on end." Elaine looked at Izzy who had pulled the straw from her hair, she was staring at her brother. "Isabella, are you alright? Has something happened? you seem rather upset." Elaine asked wondering what was wrong, Isabella had come in flushed, and fairly annoyed.

Isabella seemed to only then realize that she had straw on her as she picked it off. It had been wonderful with James, he had helped her take her mind off things while being gently with the same type of kiss Elaine claimed Sebastian gave her. An involuntary shiver went through her head as she thought of that connection. "Just rather angry about not being able to miss court tomorrow," Isabella says coming up with an excuse on the spot though she gave Sebastian an angry stare before turning to duck her head and wait for the rosiness of her cheeks to fade as well as the taste of tea from his morning meal. She hoped nobody noticed that she still had tea breath as it had been hours since she last drank it.

Annabelle smiles as she sees Sebastian enter and smiles wider as she sees him kiss Elaine, her head ducking. She love him, she would never stop. She also couldn't not be happy to see what her lady craved, thought about seemingly day and night, dreamed of... love. "Well princess Isabella, if Lady Elaine permits I'd be willing to spend the day with you in court," Annabelle says. Isabella nods and looks to Elaine for an answer. There were multiple reasons to go to court. Information. A chance to get over Sebastian somehow. A chance to keep her head high without having to act.

"Of coarse, if you are feeling up to it Annabelle." Elaine didn't mind the two of them spending the day together, since she would probably be pulled into the wedding plans, it seemed everyone was trying to forget what was happening but at the same time they were trying to solve the problem. Sebastian looked at Annabelle. "A day at court with my sister? I wish you luck Annabelle, she really isn't a court person, she's more of a horses and hay person, than pretty dresses and formalities." Elaine looked at him. "Theres nothing wrong with that." She said more directed to Sebastian. "Your sister can be a lady when and if she wishes to." Elaine didn't want to bring the conversation back to the attacks but she felt it was a good time to bring up what Annabelle had told her. "Annabelle says her attacker had ruff hands, which means he uses them a lot, and that she would be able to recognize his voice if she heard it again." Elaine looked at Sebastian. "I think Annabelle is the key to solving this, which means she could be targeted again, she needs to be guarded at all times." Sebastian nodded. "I agree." he looked at them. "Though I dont think you will be spending much time at court today, Elaine has a dress fitting last I heard." Elaine sighed taking a little more of her soup. "If Isabella and Annabelle want to go to court I dont mind, I'm sure I will do just fine with Gabby and if Gwen is up to it Gwen." Gabby stood up. "We better get going then, if you two finish early come see us." Elaine smiled at Sebastian as she got up. "See you later?" he nodded, Elaine started to walk with Gabby looking over her shoulder at Isabella mouthing 'help me' before fully walking out of the room.

Annabelle immediately felt sick at the prescense around her. Just Sebastian and Isabella. "So princess Isabella," Annabelle begins before Isabella cuts her off sharply as she breaks from the daze she had been in. "He kissed me, I swear it," she says rather aggressively before noticing the confused looks of her brother and Annabelle. "Ah... We weren't talking about why I was covered in hay apparently... Well just ignore that then," she says taking a sip of tea before coughing on the liquid and cursing it as sheremembered she hated the taste.

"Well... Um... I'd best get ready then," Annabelle says as she stands but crumbles again. "Annabelle," Isabella stands, knowing her chair over as she looks at her friend from across the table. "I'm so sorry, So sorry lady," Annabelle scrambles weakly to try and clean up the tea cup and plate that had both fallen and broken in her tumble. Tears nearly welled upon her eyes before she stopped, hands shaking. She had began to clean up the china like she always had when she made a mistake in front of her old mistress. She had never done it for Elaine and being back with this scene must have made her do old actions.

Sebastian took Annabelle’s shaking hands stopping her from cleaning the mess. “Annabelle, its alright.” He said gently, in the same voice he used with Elaine the night Guinevere was attacked. “Accidents happen, and we have lots of China.” Sebastian looked at one of the servants who cleaned up the rest of the mess. “You are not a servant anymore, you’re a Queens lady, and Elaine would never get mad at you for making a mistake, I promise.”



Elaine stood an a small pedestal while a Tailor walked around her, taking measurements so one the dress was on her could adjust it, her dress was being made even before she got back to court, and was ready for fittings by the time she arrived, Elaine was just putting off since she really didn’t want to stand for hours on end while tailor tweaked things. She was currently standing in a simple white underdress that looked more like her night gown than something that would go under a dress, but the tailor told her it was just so the dress was more comfortable to wear. When he was done his measurements he instructed a maid to go to the second part of Elaine’s room where the dress had been laid carefully on a table, Once the dress was brought out the tailor went to the separate part of the room so that Gabby could help Elaine put the dress on. “Is that tight enough my lady?” Gabby asked before finishing the corset.” Elaine looked over her shoulder a little. “Its fine Gabby, thank you.” Gabby nodded finishing and helping Elaine put the white gown on, the design was fairly simple, but it was Elegant, the dress had a little bit of a train but not enough that Elaine would trip while she was dancing.

When the back was done up the Tailor came back in to adjust it. “It looks Beautiful Lady Elaine.” Gabby smiled at her friend who looked more fed up than anything. Elaine stopped the tailor and went into the second part of the room standing in front of the mirror, she spent a few minutes looking in the mirror the top of the dress seemed a little loose. “Gabby, do you think the top is a little loose?” She asked looking over her shoulder expecting to see Gabby coming in. “Gabby?” She asked again cautiously walking towards the archway, she stopped in the archway seeing that both the maids and the tailors were gone which was strange since she didn’t recall dismissing them. “Gabby.” She walked into the further into her room. “Your Grace.” A gruff voice came from behind her; she turned around a one of the commanding guards stood in front of her holding Gabby. “Guards! Guards!” The man chuckled. “They wont come, I Dismissed them.” Elaine drew in a deep breath. “Let her go, Sebastian will have your head for this.” It was the man who attacked Gwen as well, and she assumed Annabelle. “Why show yourself now, we probably never would have caught you.” The man smiled. “There are many more of us in this castle. There are many of us who want you dead or gone.” Elaine heard her door open she turned around to see five guards, they must have been close to have heard her, they immediately took the man releasing Gabby from his grip. Elaine took her in her arms;she looked at the guards. “One of you Alert Isabella, Sebastian, and Luke that the man who attacked my ladies has been caught, tell them to meet me in my room. One of you is to stay outside my room door.”

Annabelle shook as she felt Sebastian touch her, looking away and trying to pull back. "Please prince Sebastiance... Please don't... I know my lady would never punish me, it's just... Old memories..." Annabelle says softly as she couldn't help but remember what would have happened should it not be lady Elaine.

A guard rushed into the room at that moment making Isabella look up. "Ah... Your highnesses, queen Elaine requests you in her rooms right away. We've caught the ladies' attacker," the guard says rather pleased sounding. "Sebastian, I'm running there, grab Annabelle and lets go," Isabella demands as she motions at him as she walks towards the door. She wasn't quite sure what to believe bough it seemed unlikely that the assassin would be stupid enough to be caught after his other endeavors.

Annabelle shivered as she looked at the guard, Isabella, then Sebastian. "I'll catch up, best not dally," she says softly as she looks down wondering slightly what he would do.

Sebastian looked at Annabelle. “Just be careful on the way up.” He said before reluctantly leaving her following after his sister.

Elaine stood by the window quietly waiting for them to arrive, she turned hearing the door, Isabella came in first followed by Sebastian and Luke, she knew Sebastian wasn’t supposed to see her gown until the day of the wedding but she didn’t bother changing. “Where’s Annabelle?” She asked looking at them. “She will be along shortly, she wanted us to go ahead.” Sebastian replied. Elaine nodded; she had to figure out a way to tell them what the guard had told her before he was taken away. “The Commanding guard said something, before he was taken away.” Elaine began. “That he isn’t the only one, that there are others in the castle. It doesn’t matter if we execute him, It will send a message bur this wont stop, I just have a feeling it will happen less.” Elaine looked down at her white gown, she had been thinking a lot and found that this would be of some help. “I Suggest we have the wedding as soon as possible, I know that us being married wont stop it, but with the head of the attacks executed and us wed, it will send a clear message.” Elaine looked at them nervously, her heart was racing, she didn’t know if it would work, she didn’t know if they could move the wedding even closer than it was, but she thought it would send a clear message, a message that it wasn’t getting to them, even if in truth It was getting to Elaine, and she felt it was starting to get to others as well. Sebastian was looking at her, but he remained silent.
