Description

Lucian

Image



ImageName: Lucian

Age: 17

Appearance: Lucian stands just shorter than Prince Sebastian and has a cropped head of blonde hair. He has very light blue eyes and a strong build.

Personality: Lucian wants what he wants, when he wants it, without any questions or resistance. Lucian has never not gotten what he wanted and he plans to keep it that way as he will take every possible card and play it, however dirty it is. He's rather arrogant though he only acts so when he knows he has the upper hand. He is very smart and cunning in his moves.

Rank/Occupation: Prince of England


ImageBio: Lucian's father is the king of England and as such, Lucian was raised that way. He studied strategy and militaristic stuff as he grew up though he was always hated by his servants. He was thought to be an angel by his parents though he would make the servants do terrible things that sometimes resulted in their execution though Lucian felt nothing of it, blaming them for not being capable of hiding his demanding tasks.

ImageWhen the news of the wedding reached Lucian, he decided it was time to get a new lady as he has always had a mistress of some sort, willing or not, and upon telling his father of the wish for a new girl, his father decided to get Lucian married. The king sent Lucian to the French court telling him he should get the princess there though he can have fun whenever he wanted.

Lucian didn't plan on being with the princess as he figured she wasn't one to be worth it. When he encountered Isabella in the hall, Lucian changed his mind and now has his sights set.

So begins...

Lucian smiled at Isabella. "Hello to you to." He said before his face turned serious. "I am terribly sorry Isabella, but assaulting a Princess, that gets you locked up." Lucian looked at her. "Dont look so upset, do you really think you could have married him, even if your brother was King, he wouldn't allow it. You need to marry a Prince, because you are a Princess; and Princess' marry prince's not stable hands. Look at Elaine for example, she was crowned a Queen when she was seven, but before that she was a Princess who was engaged to a Prince, she is now married and happy, she is the Queen of Ireland and the Future Queen of France, everything worked out for her because she did what she was taught to do and did what she was told."


Elaine laughed a little. "Funny but, I'm not Pregnant. I'm probably just catching something." Elaine looked at him but his facial expression didn't change, if anything he looked slightly amused that she was denying it, she crossed her arms. "Jason, I'm not pregnant. Thats Ridiculous." She looked towards one of the beds averting his gaze, she knew she was making this more difficult than it had to be, but it wasn't the time for her to end up Pregnant, and she wasn't going to accept it until Jason proved it.

Isabella looked up at Lucian furiously. "Elaine is different from me. I'm not going to hold the crown and I wouldn't want it. There was never a reason for me to marry a prince before and I don't see why I must now," Isabella says rather low. "And James didn't assault me, he was worried about me and he was making sure I was alright. He is careful in the way he is, he wouldn't grab onto someone without their permission. If anything you were the one that assaulted me. I'd rather be touched by a stable hand any day over a perverted prince such as yourself," Isabella says, her heart racing as she tried to keep herself calmer. She was loosing her chance of ever getting James out of the dungeon.


Jason sighs. "You had your wedding, you and Prince Sebastian obviously love each other, so everyone can assume what happened... I really feel uncomfortable trying to explain how this works to you your highness so let me put it simply. You're pregnant, I can't prove it to you in any way for awhile. You must understand, if there's a possibility, which there is, you're one hundred percent pregnant. Nothing that I know of could make you have such symptoms unless you're going crazy which you hardly seem to be doing," Jason says with a shrug before going to take his seat again. "There's a book on that shelf there that will give more signs of pregnancy if you wish to borrow it to entirely convince yourself," Jason offers pointing at the shelf.

Lucian chuckled shaking his head. "All Princess' and Queens are the same Isabella, they do what they are told to keep countries from destroying each other. Do you honestly think, if Sebastian was just Sebastian not the Future King of anything, and Elaine was just Elaine, not the Queen of anything they would have married each other? A Princess doesn't decide, her father does, and your father is seeming quite happy with the Alliance we are forming which involves you marrying me. Maybe you should go talk to Elaine, learn a few things from her, I think she caught on fairly quickly, and it would be in your best interest that you catch on fairly quickly as well." Lucian looked at Isabella. "If you want the stable hand released, I suggest you send Elaine, I would prefer to discuss this matter with a Queen who knows her place, than a Princess who doesn't know her place. Because my dear, you are just lowering his chances of getting out of there, dead or alive."


Elaine looks at the shelf before looking back at Jason. "This stays between us, even if Sebastian comes asking, no one is to know until we can be sure." After Elaine was sure she made her orders clear she left a little more distressed than she was when she went in. She stopped a Messenger appearing in front of her. "Your Highness, the Princess has requested your presence in the throne room." Elaine looked at the messenger. "Has something happened?" The messenger shrugged. "All I know is the stable hand has been put in the cells." Elaine thanked the messenger walking towards the throne room, she pushed the doors open clearly furious. "What is going on?" She demanded before anyone could speak. Lucian looked at Isabella before looking at Elaine. "Your Highness, the stable hand was seen assaulting the princess, and she wants us to release him."
"I highly doubt James assaulted anyone, let alone the Princess. I also hear that you made quite sure my husband would not be able to release him." Elaine was better at keeping calm in situations like this but she was letting her anger show, more for a warning than anything.
"Yes, because Prince Sebastian would have let the criminal loose, just because his sister told him to." Lucian replied. "The King agreed with me."
"Well, let me remind you, you are a guest in our court, and Sebastian is the future King, if you think you have any authority over him at all you are very wrong." Elaine looked at the King. "James would never harm your daughter, Your Grace, I know the boy, he wouldn't harm a fly."
"I'm sorry your Highness, but I think you are out of line." Lucian said to Elaine. "This is not your court yet."
"I am a Queen and you are a Prince, I assure you I am no where near out of line! If anyone is out of line it would be you." Elaine's voice was raised now.
"May I remind you, that if I am unsatisfied I will have my father-"
Elaine put her hand up cutting him off. "I am growing weary of your threats, I have no doubt that if an Alliance isnt secured there will be a war, but it will not happen anytime soon, that I am sure off." Elaine turned back to the King. "With your permission your Grace, I would like to have the stable hand released." When the King gave his consent Elaine started walking out bringing Isabella with her, she turned on her heals before exiting. "One more thing, You touch the Princess, in anyway, before you are officially Engaged, you will not only be Answering to the King, you will be Answering to me." She walked out looking at Isabella. "Are you alright Izzy?"

Isabella shakes her head, trying to calm her racing heart. "Elaine, I'm sorry. Sebastian told me not to be rash and now... James needs to leave the castle, needs to change jobs to be closer to us, or just go to town. Lucian knows about him and I can't protect him. I must see him though, I need to know he's alright," Isabella whispers looking up at her friend with pleading eyes. Lucian made her nervous, made her worried that she would have no chance of getting away from his wandering hands and eyes. "I really shouldn't be pressurizing you as I know you don't need it considering, well, the baby and all..." Isabella says before she feels light headed. The thoughts of a baby being a royal came to her head, knowing her husband would expect her to bear him children and with her odds and chances so far... the thought of children made Isabella sick. "Come on," She says with a quick tug of Elaine's hand before taking off for the dungeon.

Upon reaching it, a guard steps to block Isabella before seeing Elaine which is when he steps aside. Isabella rushes to the cell where she saw the familiar frame of James, grabbing the keys on the way even though the guard protested. With them, she unlocks the cell and rushes in to James who looks up and stands immediately.
"Isabella," He whispers as he sweeps her up into a hug which she doesn't resist, but clings to, needing to be close to him.
"I'm sorry," She whispered into his ear making James smile and shake his head.
"It's nothing my love, you did nothing wrong," He whispers back as he kisses her softly before letting her down.
James looks up to finally see Elaine and widens his eyes. "Ah... your highness, hello," He says with wide surprised eyes as Isabella takes his hand and walks him out.

"Elaine, this is James, I don't believe you've ever properly met. Now, any ideas about what to do?" Isabella asks as she tries to cover up the coming tears of relief to see James out by ducking her head slightly. James notices and whispers something in Isabella's ear to make her smile as she looked up at him before turning her attention back to Elaine.

Elaine shook her head. "I think we should stay in the castle, just in case." Elaine said.
The Negotiations continued on for a few weeks and they weren't any further. "We aren't getting anywhere with Lucian." Elaine said to Isabella, he isn't very happy about me releasing James a few weeks ago, and he seems even more unimpressed now her is working with Jason." Elaine stopped talking seeing the Prince, who stopped in front of them. "Lucian. What a pleasant surprise." Elaine said smiling as kindly as she could, but the Prince wasn't on her good side, and she wasn't feeling well which made her mood towards the Prince even worse. Lucian smiled. "Your Highness, Princess." He said with a little nod. "Lady Elaine, we dont seem to be getting anywhere with this Alliance." Elaine looked at him. "Alliance's take time. It took my father almost two years to secure Ireland's with France. Besides, I'm not the King, I cant move things any faster." Lucian looked at Isabella. "Would you mind if I take the princess for a Minute?" he asked Taking Isabella's hand, Elaine pushed his hand away from Isabella. "Yes I do mind. Now if you would excuse us, we have somewhere to be." Elaine looked over her shoulder as they continued down the hall, Elaine shifted uncomfortably in her dress, she couldn't wear a corset anymore without it hurting, since she now had a bump, not a very large one but it was big enough. "I swear I am going to do whatever it takes to make sure you dont marry him. He is Vile, controlling and Cruel, and over all I cant stand him." Elaine stopped putting a hand on her stomach, she stopped Isabella from helping her. "I'm fine." She said moving her hand, she had been getting cramps on and off, and they were painful but she didn't want Isabella thinking about anything else. "What would you like to do? I cant stay in this castle much longer." Elaine said disguising the pain with one of her classic smiles.

Elaine sat in the chair watching Sebastian carefully incase something happened, she shifted uncomfortably a few times glancing at Jason as he walked back over, she averted her gaze to a window, she knew she wasn't to ride, and she was surprised Jason hadn't said anything, then again he had been busy with Sebastian, she glanced around the room looking at anything and everything but Jason.


Gabby shut the book she was holding hearing Lucian, she grabbed Isabella's hand leading her to the other side of the Library pushing one of the wall panels slipping into the secret passageway shutting the door once Isabella was in. "This one doesn't lead anywhere, we will have to wait until he is gone." Gabby whispered to her hearing Lucian's footsteps getting closer.
"I thought you said the Princess was here!" He said turning to the man. "She was Prince, I'm not sure how she could have disappeared so quickly." Lucian growled a little. "Find her, and where is Elaine?" The man stood silent for a moment. "The Prince was injured while out with his sister, I would assume she would be by his side. She was taught well Prince, she isn't someone you would catch slipping up, if that is what you are looking for." Lucian crossed his arms. "She will, everyone makes mistakes, you just have to wait and watch." The man sighed. "Elaine wont. I would advise you to stop tormenting her and the Princess. Elaine is very close to the Princess and as you have seen before isn't hesitant to protect her. This is going to be her court, she is married to the King's son, and she Is a Queen. It would be wise not to anger her, she is a nice girl, but when it comes to people she cares about, if she got even the slightest hint you were plotting against anyone, she would have your head." Lucian chuckled. "I dont care if this is going to be her court, because it isn't her court yet...Just find the Princess." The man nodded walking out of the Library, Lucian looked around once more before following. Gabby opened the door closing it again looking at Isabella. "I have a feeling the English Prince wants more that just a wife, he wants your brothers crown..."

Isabella realizes what gabby meant, everything going into place. "People want me because they know Sebastian and Elaine would be willing to do anything..." Isabella whispers. "We need to warn them. If we don't... It could very well mean the end of all France," Isabella whispers, looking after Lucian with her heart beating wildly though her words were steady. If Lucian got her, Lucian could easily control her friends and brother from afar at his court, then take all of France with the upper hand he held. "Come on, Lucia may think he knows the castle, but I know it better," Isabella says with a nod before taking gabbys hand and leading her to the opposite side of the library, pulling an old, unused, unlabeled book slightly from the shelf which opened a secret passageway. Isabella knew they had to get in soon and hurry up about closing the door as anyone intheball outside of the library would hear it... Including Lucian. With that, Isabella led gabby through the maze of the passageways after closing the door, heading for the infirmary.

Upon entering, she finds Jason's back facing her before he turned around. "Oh, hello princess, nice to see you. If you don't mind, please don't ever sneak in here when its nighttime unless its an emergency, for I am an ugly sleeper and usual stay here for he night," Jason says before turning around. After a moment, he turns back around as if just realizing how strange the situation is before waving the matter away. "I've experienced stranger things growing up with the lot of you," he says with a rather annoyed tons. Isabella just shrugs slightly before rushing to Elaine and Sebastian. "There's been an issue-," Isabella begins before the door opens to reveal just who she was about to talk about. Isabella looked up, slightly fearful of the youth only a year or so solder than her. If she remembered, he was Sebastian's age, making him two years older at the moment.

Elaine's face soured seeing Lucian, she stood up smoothing her dress. "What do you want?" Lucian raised his eyebrows. "Someones not very nice, having one of those mood swings Elaine? Wont it be wonderful when the baby is born, we will all be blessed with another you." Elaine laughed a little. "You wont be here when the baby is born." Lucian walked around standing in front of her. "Are you sure? it could take another nine months for this alliance to form, and I do love babies." Elaine crossed her arms. "Well, if you are here, you wont be anywhere near my child. I asked you what you wanted, if you aren't going to answer you can leave, I dont want you here and I dont think Isabella does either." Lucian sighed. "Thats to bad, I came to see her in the first place, I thought I would find her here with you, Isabella is rather predictable in the sense, she's like a scared child, hiding all the time, though she has no reason to hide."
Elaine growled. "Leave, now; and for future reference Lucian, you refer to me as your Highness, or Your Grace, I am not your equal and I will not be treated as such, now, show yourself out before I have the guards do it for you."
Lucian shrugged. "You cant protect her from everything Elaine, your condition is worsening, the stress isn't good for you, I'm sure Jason has told you that." she simply continued to glare at him. "I wouldn't let you near Isabella if I was on my death bed. Beside's my condition is not your concern." Lucian shrugged heading for the door, disappearing down the hall.
Elaine turned back to Isabella. "What's the issue Isabella other than Lucian being here making all our lives miserable?"

Isabella collapsed on the bed behind her. Her eyes stinging as if she were to cry though she wouldn't. "He wants the throne Elaine... He wants me so he can have you and Sebastian under his thumb. If we get married, he doesn't just want me for a wife he can take to bed whenever, he wants to threaten you to hurt me, make you do whatever he wants. In the end, Britain will have not only you two, but all of France and Ireland as well... I have to do something, Lucian's right anyway. I have been hiding behind all of you and I don't like it. With Sebastian hurt and you pregnant, I'll step up to work with father and Lucian about negotiations. I'll go to the meetings, I'll sit by him and tolerate him until we can get all this mess sorted out and you both feel better," Isabella days standing up, using the tone that says she won't take no for an answer. Jason comes over to Elaine, his head nodding with Isabella as if agreeing with her. "It's not a bad idea, really the only one you have at this point considering you, lady Elaine, will be in bed next to your husband for a bit while you rest after riding with the baby for the day. You can't risk getting out of bed, something might have been effected by the riding and if it was, it could hurt you or make you sick. You need rest," Jason says, his fine commanding yet gentle.

Isabella groans in frustration. She had hoped to get those thoughts out of her head. She still had nightmares of him grabbing her and touching her. "I understand that, but what about when you start getting sick? I swear, I won't let you out of her and neither will Sebastian even if he's incapable. You can't go to negotiations like that and Sebastian can't go either. I'm the only available one who knows how to talk strategy. I've been sneaking out avoiding guards the past few weeks, what's to say I can't avoid him if need be? It's like you believe me to be a child, innocent and weak. I know your trying to protect me Elaine, but I have been quite capable before and I am right now," Isabella says regaining her composure as she sits up, using crisp clear words. "It's not much of any of our choices if father summons me to take your places. He won't take no for an answer and he can do that being king..." Isabella says rather unhappily as she stands. "Its almost night time and I need to go get ready," Isabella says with a nod to Sebastian and Elaine before turning and going to the passageway, immediately going to her rooms and locking every door.
Isabella then moves to climbs out her window, jumping to the nearby tree that was outside dlsipently before going down. She went to the stables, grabbing her horse but not yet seeing James' as the one he used was still there. With a shrug, Isabella waited before wondering if he took a different one and ride ahead to the hiding place she had gone to earlier that day. With shrug, she took off riding to that spot. Upon arriving, she dismounted, looking around. "James?" She calls softly as she moves about, walking slowly from her horse. There was a crunch if leaves behind her and Isabella turned to feel her stomach drop though she didn't show it.

Jason looks after Isabella with a sigh. "Honestly, you royals are all so hardheaded sometimes.. No offense," he adds in as he comes over, to Sebastian, a cup of water in hand. "James isn't back yet but I'm not worried, he probably had to take a long route and then make the tea himself. I'll just give you your medicine like this," Jason says with a nod. "Lady Elaine, you can stay here tonight if you wish," Jason offers.

Lucian stepped out of the shadows. “Nope, guess again.” He shook his head. “You claim to be good at this? If you were good at this it wouldn’t have taken me five minutes to find this place let alone know you would be here. Your to predictable.” Lucian smiled at her a little sitting down by a tree. “Come sit with me.” He waited a little and when she didn’t move continued. “If we are going to be living in the same castle for another few months we should at least like each other. Besides this game of cat and mouse bores me, except for on the odd occasion I get to face off with Elaine, she definitely knows how to stand her ground, I will give her that. Now come sit.”


Elaine thanked Jason and went to change out of her dress; she came back in her white nightgown, which made her stomach fairly obvious, she sat back down beside Sebastian opening the book she had brought. “Elaine.” Sebastian whispered, she looked up from her book watching him move over flinching as he did so, he patted the spot he had made for her, she smiled kindly. “You need the space, I’m alright here.” Sebastian looked at her. “It would make me feel better. Please?” Elaine sighed shutting her book putting it down on the chair when she stood, she lay down beside Sebastian her head and one arm rested on his chest, it wasn’t long before she drifted to sleep.

Luke had seemingly disappeared for awhile. Where is anyone's guess but his.

In fact, he was in one of castle's secret rooms currently. A man approached him from the shadows. "You know, you have been quite silent. Not a word from you recently. It's been rather hard to find you".

"No, you just weren't looking hard enough. Tell me assassin, who hired you. The Queen, or a foreigner?"

"Why does it matter to you? You will be dead".

"And so will you. By making myself difficult to find, you had to go searching. Six people now know your face, name, and occupation, as does myself John".

The assassin froze. "You set a trap? Let me guess, if I go after you or Elaine and those you care about, you reveal who I am, correct?"

"Yes. And the money you are being paid is no good if your dead".

He took out his blade, somewhat fidgety. "Your entire plan rests on me being paid by money, and not loyalty".

Luke turned around. "No, my entire plan involved the poison in your last meal to take effect. The last meal you tried to slip Elaine. You never answered my question by the way".

The assassin stepped forward, but dropped his blade. His hands were shaking. "You...how did..."

"Loyalty is so easy to claim when you have the weapon. Tell me now, knowing I have the antidote, who hired you?"

He seemed to just die then and there. "Guess he used a faster poison, or ate early". He then went to find the others, leaving the body there. Luke had no sympathy for those who went after the people he cared about, or himself. He had spent his time gaining allies, whether they were willing or not. He decided to check on Sebastian and Elaine, and to prove he was still alive.

When he got there, he looked at Elaine. "Everything okay?"

Isabella didn't move to go towards Lucian, instead taking a seat by a nearby tree. "I'm only predictable when I'm thinking about others. You may be prince of your country, but you won't be one to rule over and control me," Isabella says as she looks around, hoping James was on his way to get her out if the situation. "What will it take to get you and your father from stating here? What is it you're lobbying for so hard in court that just won't be given to you? I doubt its just me as my father would have handed me over already," Isabella says as she watches Lucian, her eyes guarded and her tone even. She felt strong, easy in her familiar haven. "What is it you want from me that you can't get by taking someone else?" Isabella asks as she leans back against a tree, her nerves on end as she got a bad feeling.

Jason looks up. "Ah, young Luke, yes. Sebastian will be well as long as he keeps his fighting spirit and his will to live which I believe won't be too difficult and all. Now, if recommend our allowing her to sleep as she lady Elaine is tired. Is there anything you need?" Jason asks the youth, speaking to him as he speaks to adults.

Lucian smiled. “Your right your father would have already handed you over. But I’m not foolish enough to tell you who or what I’m after, all I will tell you is you’re a direct link to Elaine and your brother. The faster Elaine tires the faster she is out of the picture.” Lucian rested one of his legs on the other putting his hands behind his head. “No matter what you do, she will protect you, she got on that horse and rode into the woods to get you, even with the knowledge she was not to ride because of the baby. In all honesty she would do anything to keep you safe, even if that means putting her and her child in harms way, and you know it.”


Elaine sat up careful not to wake Sebastian when she heard Lukes voice, she wasn’t sleeping and had woken up about a half an hour before, she just kept her eyes closed hoping she would drift back to sleep, the throbbing pain in her stomach returned as soon as she stood, she wearily smiled at Jason and Luke before the smile faded again and she sat down on the chair that was at Sebastian’s side. “Has Isabella come back yet?” She asked Jason quietly, closing her eyes putting a hand on her stomach.

"Sorry I was gone for so long, but I was busy dealing with things. There was...a slight difficulty. Anyways, I know father has been worried about me, so I should probably go and see him. As for Isabelle, I will look for her once I am done with father. That may take awhile though, as my father may not want me to leave his sight. I hear he and my mother were quite worried about my disappearance".

Luke did not mention the assassin in the secret chamber, nor the other assassins. He had missed much, but what he had done was worth it. He turned to Jason. "Just checking on them. Letting them know I am back, and alive". The way he said alive had a subtle note in it, an implication someone intended otherwise. It was unintentional, and faint".

"So unless you need anything or have any questions, I will go see him now".

Jason shrugs. "No, but usually James doesn't come back until late either. Maybe he got distracted or something," Jason shrugs before looking at Elaine. "By the way Elaine, you're not allowed to ride again, walk around for very long, or run, as you are just begging to have difficulty with the birth. Isabella is right you know, she is strong enough to handle herself, she just gets nervous. I'll watch her and be there for her while your decommissioned," Jason says with a nod and a smile as he continues to read by the light of the candle.

Isabella steadies her breathing with some effort before staring at Lucian. "Know I'll do anything to protect her and her child as well. I'll be taking her place as well as Sebastian's in the negotiations for the time being," Isabella says, going against Elaine in the argument of her being there. She would not let Elaine hurt herself or the baby if it was for Isabella, it didn't matter that much to Isabella if she had to marry someone to save her friend, even if it broke her slightly. "Did you stop that guard earlier? The one I told to come with me?" Isabella asks quietly now.

“Trust me, I wont be running around or riding, not if I’m feeling like this, and I only did it in the first place to get Isabella, she could have been killed if I didn’t go and get her.” Elaine wrapped her arms around her self-shivering a little, he head starting to throb. “And its not that I don’t think she can look after herself. I know she can, but she wont be able to fight off Lucian if he tries anything, he just torments her when I’m with her.”


Lucian grinned. “Despite what you might think, I’m not the one trying to kill you or Elaine. I had no reason to dismiss your guard, besides I was in the castle studying.” He sighed slightly bored. “You being at court will be better than Elaine being there, she has a way about her, drives me insane. She knows how to analyze situations and act appropriately, her instinct is almost never wrong; her father was the same if I remember correctly. Its very hard to slip things by people like that; but I’m sure you wont be a problem, in fact you might just make this whole matter a lot easier for me.”

Isabella doesn't let what Lucian say show that it had gotten to her slightly. "I've been to negotiations before Lucian. I may not be as helpful to you as you think. Why are you here anyway? I doubt you were on a leisure stroll through the woods, escpecially after you tell me I'm predictable," Isabella says as she sits up against the tree across from Lucian, her eyes flying around them to the gaps of the trees, feeling as if they were being watched, or perhaps it was just her feeling Lucian watching her, she wasn't sure, but she didn't like it as it made her feel uneasy in more than one way.

Jason nods his understanding. He had seen it before, dragged Isabella away sometimes to help the situation in her case. He had however known the girl to be resourceful considering she wasn't extremely strong. "True lady, but really, I just believe she doesn't think she can go against him. She may be worried about the lot of you, as you said, Lucian knows how to get to her. She could just be trying to avoid his contact for fear that she can't handle him, as we've all been babying her after the assassins came along. She is a princess and I respect that, but she was never babied as you and Sebastian haven't been either. Does that make sense?" Jason asks from where he was at his desk.

"Right, well, I should go see father and mother now. Knowing them, they probably won't let me leave their side for awhile since I was gone so long. If I don't return, assume I got smothered by their love" Luke jested. He left to go see his father and mother. When he arrived, both of them embraced him on sight, even his father. "Where did you go Luke?"

"Busy dealing with things. You know that. Still, sorry I was gone so long".

His mother took note of his appearance. She told his servant to get Luke some fresh clothes. "Look at you, let me get you out of these dirty clothes. Poor sweetie".

"It's okay mother, I can do that later"

His father stood up and smiled. "I am glad you are okay. Now, as your father and king, let your mother do as she wishes and take care of you. We both have missed you too much to have it any other way".

As his mother did this and took them off, she found a scar on his arm. "Where did you get this?"

Luke had forgotten about the scar. "It was...an assassin. They wanted to use me to get to Sebastian and Elaine. I showed them wrong".

When his mother was done cleaning him up and went to get him fresh clothes, his father approached him. "What did you learn, Luke?"

"Someone wants the two broken up to ruin the alliance. Maybe multiple people. Some of them had the crest of an eagle".

Luke told him the rest. As his mother came back, she could tell they had been discussing things. As this happened, his father went over to him. "How did it feel Luke? Your first kill?"

"It was...easier then I thought". He left out the details, and just let it continue.

(Stumbled around this post for awhile. Anyways, If someone could put a recap in OOC that would be awesome)

"I came to talk to you. Since you are so hell bent on avoiding me." Lucian replied. "The best way to be able to talk to you was to find you, or find where you would be. As I said, it was easier than I thought it would be." Lucian stood up looking around. "I would Expect you came to see James so I should go, before he arrives." Lucian started to walk in the direction of the castle. "I look forward to seeing you at court." He said with a nod before disappearing into the dark cover of the trees.

Elaine looked at Jason. "Of coarse it makes sense, and I'm to tired to argue anyways even if I want to." She looked at Sebastian her eyes moving to the white bandages wrapped around his torso to stop the bleeding of his wound, she could see the blood starting to show through the white cloth and the sick feeling came over her again so she looked away, her eyes resting on Jason's desk.


As Elaine said the English King came to court about four months after, of coarse everyone was expected to greet him, but Elaine didn't really want to get out of bed. "Elaine, you have to get up, Sebastian is waiting to see you in the infirmary and he said if you didn't go see him he would get up and come see you no matter what Jason said. Beside's the English king is arriving today and he is expecting you to be present." Gabby said trying to get the girl to get out of her bed, Elaine groaned getting out of her bed, She put on one of her newer dresses. "You look uncomfortable." Elaine raised her eyebrows. "When am I not uncomfortable Gabby?" she asked with a little yawn. "and its getting worse everyday." Gabby smiled sympathetically at her friend as they walked out of the room. "When did Jason say the baby was due?" Elaine put a hand on her stomach. "three, or four months." Elaine replied they walked down to the infirmary Elaine stopped seeing Sebastian walking around. "Does Jason know your walking around?" She asked Sebastian crossing her arms, Sebastian looked at Jason's desk where he was sitting. "Well, he is sitting right there watching me, so I would assume so. I'm allowed to walk around, as long as i'm careful. Should you be walking around?" Sebastian asked coming over to her, Elaine smiled a little. "The English King is coming, I didn't want to get out of bed, but, you know how kings are...I am however allowed to walk around, just not a lot. Actually at the rate Jason is going i'm surprised I'm not locked in my room and strapped to my bed." Elaine said looking at Jason. "Why would he strap you to your bed?" Elaine laughed a little. "Because when I'm not feeling as awful as I do right now I like to wander off...Apparently when your Pregnant your not aloud to wander."
