"Well, you can't blame her for being possessive. But just keep her feelings in mind and yours. Make sure you feel what you think you feel before talking to her. Just be honest." He managed to get out before a woman with sandy blonde hair entered the room. Erorn walked up to her and took her hand and kissed it as he bowed to her. "A pleasure to finally meet you. My name is Erorn, The princess speaks very highly of you." He gave the standard smoke screen until the servant left the room. "And now that he's gone, I'm sure you two have some catching up to do." He smiled at Harper hoping he made a good impression on her.

Harper walked in to see Romilly and a short red haired man sitting at a table. Her eyes fell back on Romilly. She was breathtakingly beautiful as ever. Harper thought she would never see her again, but when she found out she was requested to move into the castle as one of her personal maidens she couldn't stop smiling. She could finally be back with the one person she loved more than life. Before Romilly would get up the red headed man came up to her and kissed her hand.

"A... pleasure to meet you too... Prince?" She sort of asked since she didn't know what the prince looked like or what his name was so she just guess it was the man in front of her. "

Romilly laughed and walked up to her, hugging her close. "I have so much to tell you. Erorn don't leave yet. This here is Erorn, he is not the prince... but the prince's personal guard. The prince knows about you and I, Harper. He was the one who wanted you here for me. He loves Erorn... but.. it is a lot difficult than that." Romilly held bother her hands and looked back at Erorn before looking over at Harper again. "In order for you to stay... you have to marry. So Erorn... is going to marry you so that we can can be together..."

Harper's hands dropped and she just stared at the both of them. "If you really think that is for the best... She didn't know this man from Adam... but nor did the princess know of the prince. "So where is the prince now?"

"He has some important business to take care of. Might be way for a few days, but he is excited to meet you!" Romilly laughed.

Harper smiled and looked at Erorn, "You okay with this? She asked.

"I would do anything for him. I actually gave him the idea to do this. It wouldn't be fair to Romilly or you or me any other way that we could think of. So as long as you're okay with it, we can keep everyone happy. You get Romilly and I get Marcus, we only have to switch to each other when we go out in public." He gave a sheepish smile. He suddenly found himself wondering if there were secret tunnels running between the two rooms so that they wouldn't have to risk being seen in the halls.

Harper smiled, it did make sense. Plus Erorn was okay with it, he did suggest it. "Okay... I agree to do this." She said softly. Romilly nearly screamed in excitement as she hugged Harper. Harper hugged her back and before she could say anything Romilly kissed her. She smiled and kissed her back before Romilly pulled away.

Nasir and Marcus had left the kitchen and headed to their rooms to gather clothes and the stuff that would be needed for what was to come. Then they headed to get a carriage, which Marcus drove. He didn't want to have a servant be around and they were going to need the carriage to transport the guys.

On the way to Marcus' vacation home they talked about how they were going to go about things. They decided that they would have to stalk them for a bit and get each one alone before taking them. When they got to the house it was dark, but they lit candles and moved furniture around until it was late at night. A tarp was spread out with four chair sitting on top of it. Chains and ropes were next to each chair. On top of them, hanging, was a cloth to shove in their mouth if they got too loud.

Nasir was ready for this. His anger had been building up. Marcus was the calm one, he over checked everything and when all was done at the house they rested. The next day the began stalking their prey.


Harrison

First one on their list was Harrison, he worked at his own restaurant. Nasir and Marcus stayed around the place. Each would take breaks before coming back and letting the other one go. It wasn't till late at night that Harrison closed by himself. Nasir and Marcus moved down the alleyway to the back of the restaurant where Harrison was. Harrison was taken aback from Nasir's body guard stance and the prince being there. He didn't see Nasir's fist coming towards his face.

When he woke up he was tied and chained to a chair in a house he hadn't seen before. He tried to talk but a cloth was stuffed in his mouth. He looked around and saw the tall blond man and the prince staring down at him. The tall blond began to talk. He said he was here to get revenge for the girl he assaulted almost ten years ago. Harrison froze. So she had lived and talked to someone who actually would do something. His hand gripped the chair. He was a stupid kid back then. Harrison wished he never became friends with Vincent. He hadn't even talked to the group since that night.

They took out the cloth in his mouth, but he didn't scream. The blond guy got to his eye level and told him what he was going to do to him and they he is going to wish he hadn't done something so horrible. Harrison told him he already regretted doing it, that if he could go back and stop them he would. Harrison said he wasn't going to beg for his life either, he knew Karma would come and find him one day.

The tall blond man and the prince looked at each other and shook their head. They shoved the cloth back in his mouth and began to pull his nails out. The pain was shot through his body and he screamed into the cloth. He couldn't help but cry. Harrison was hoping they would just kill him off pretty fast. The prince had looked away and the blond man looked like he didn't want to be doing this, but it had to be done.

Harrison knew, he didn't expect what he had after that night to last. Every night he thought about what happened and how he waited for Karma to come, but she took her sweet time, just like the blond was doing to him. The prince finally came over and poured alcohol on his wounds. Harrison jumped and tried to get away from it, the pain seemed to maxify now that the alcohol was on. The prince wrapped his fingers delicately before making sure the chains and ropes were on tight enough.

They left him like that all night. Harrison drifted in and out of sleep. His body was starting to ache. He heard the footsteps of the two men. The prince took the cloth out of his mouth and gave him water before feeding him. He told him that he was sorry, but he couldn't allow people like him in his kingdom. Harrison gave a small and tired nod. He knew he couldn't stay. He already came to terms with what he done and how he was going to lose his life because of it. He took everything from that girl, left her for dead naked in a cave... what kind of human does that? No human would. He wasn't, he knew he was a monster.

When they were finished feeding him they placed the cloth back in his mouth, tighten his chains and ropes, before leaving him in the empty house.


James


They left the first guy in the house tied up and gagged before going to find James. He would be working at a school, so they had to be careful not to be seen by kids and their parents or the other faculty. They walked around town until the school let out and then followed James until they were in an empty street. Nasir and Marcus cornered him. It wasn't as easy to get him knocked out and in the carriage as it was with Harrison. He fought them and was a pretty good fighter, but Nasir was bigger and trained by his own father.

James woke up in a chair next to Harrison. He looked paler than normal and looked down at his hands. His fingers were wrapped and bloody. He felt sick. The blond guy looked down at him and told James why he was here. His body tensed. He didn't how he would know... unless the girl didn't die. His mind spun and he thought about his wife and child. He tried to talk, but the cloth was getting in his way. The prince was the one to take it out. He told them to not hurt his wife or child, that he would take all of it, to just leave them out of it. They were innocent.

The blond looked at the prince and they walked out of the room. Nasir couldn't kill him, he had a family... the prince nodded in agreement. They decided the ones who had families would be tortured and then brought back to the castle to rot in Marcus' dungeon. They walked back into the room and told him he would live, but he would still be tortured and placed in the dungeon when it was all over with. James thanked them, crying as he thought about his family being safe.

The blond and prince looked at each other and shook their head before ripping out his nails. He screamed into the cloth, his body shaking. He started to gag and the prince hurried to take the cloth out before he actually vomited. Harrison didn't make a sound. He just looked over at James and shook his head, like he was disappointed in his weakness. The blond and the prince cleaned up everything before going back to torturing him. He thought he was going to die from the pain. He sure felt like death was slipping his arms around him.

The prince poured alcohol on his fingers and James screamed again. The prince began wrapping up his fingers before going over to Harrison and and torturing him more. His screams terrified him, but he looked like he accepted it. James didn't know what Harrison did after that night besides move. He seen him around in his restaurant, but he refused to take his family there.

Maybe he accepted his fate. James couldn't do that, he had a family to think of. He could accept anything that happened to him. The image of the girl that night flashed across his mind and the look of fear and pain. James jaw clinched. He had a little girl of his own now and to think of men doing that angered him. He didn't deserve his family. Didn't deserve their love, but he was selfish and took it. Like he took what wasn't his all those years ago.

They cleaned Harrison up for the night and made sure they were both tightly bound and gagged before disappearing. He looked over to Harrison whose lip was busted and his face was bruised. Harrison looked at him and shook his head before he dropped his head. James drifted to sleep, but jolted up after what seemed like five minutes. It was like that all night till he heard the men come. They fed both of them and gave them something to drink before cleaning their wounds and bandaged them again. Both men checked their restraints before leaving them in the house.

Abram


Abram was an escort. It wouldn't be hard to get him in the carriage and to the house. They waited till night time to go to stop him before going to his apartment they pretended to hire him and got him into the carriage. The prince sat in the back with him. He had no idea the prince was into men, but Abram didn't mind. He liked men and women equally. His job was technically more than an escort, but he had to keep it hush so that he didn't get put in jail again.

Abram turned to the prince and slid hi hand on his knee and up. He could feel the prince tense up and before he could say anything, the prince had his hand on his neck and pinned. He told Abram not to put his disgusting and worthless hands on him again. Abram looked up at him with confusion before it turned to anger. He tried to get the prince off of him, but the prince was way too strong. It seemed like an hour had passed before the carriage stopped. When the blond man open the door what he saw confused him. He told the prince that they didn't take him so he could be play with him.

The prince threw Abram out and scuffed, saying a piece of trash like him couldn't ever hope to be with a prince. Abram scrambled up and was going to swing at the prince when the blond swung. It took one hit for him to pass out. When he woke he was tied and bound to a chair, a cloth on his lap. He looked around and saw his old buds from the island were there with him. It took a moment to realize that they were there because of that stupid girl.

He looked up at the two and growled. Abram asked if this was about the stupid girl and wonder why she hadn't died back then. The blond swung, this time punching his throat. Abram coughed and jerked in his chair. The prince looked up at the blond like he wasn't supposed to do that. When Abram came too he laughed. He told them that the girl had it coming. She practically wanted it after Harrison was done with her. This time the prince swung and kept swinging till the blond pinned him against the wall and told him to calm down.

Abram just laughed as his face throbbed. He didn't care about the girl and surely didn't regret it. He had fun that night. He loved the look in her eyes when she realized what was happening. The way she screamed... then he screamed. He felt the searing pain as go up his leg. He looked down and saw from the top of the knee and down was gone. The two guys also screamed against their cloths. Before he fainted he screamed again as he got stabbed in his abdomen repeatedly. It seemed to hit all of the spots that wouldn't kill him if they were tended to correctly.

The last thing her heard were footsteps going away and the sounds of his old friends screaming.

Virgil


This was the last one before going to get Vincent. They realized that this was going to be a little bit tougher to get him knocked out and in the carriage. They would be playing in his stomping grounds. It was late at night, they had stalked him for a few days and realized that he worked along. Marcus was the distraction. He went in and told the story of how they needed a blacksmith to do a certain job at the castle since theirs were gone for while. Virgil seem to buy into it and when they were busy talking Nasir put him in a headlock until he passed out. It wasn't an easy thing to do. Virgil flailed, threw all of his weight against Nasir, and almost got away from him. Plus it took a good while for him to pass out.

When all was said and done they headed back to the house. By this time Harrison was almost gone and Abram was somehow hanging on for dear life. They didn't do too much to James, but enough where he would be suffering for a long time. Now it was Virgil's turn. When he woke up he was tired to the chair. He looked around and saw his old group of friends. It clicked instantly what was going on. The girl didn't die in the cave that day and she told someone. They had finally found all of them.

Virgil went to clinch his teeth when he noticed his mouth was stuffed with a type of cloth. The prince and some blond guy were talking to each other a ways from him, but then the blond man turned around and got eye leveled with him. He told him that if he hadn't had kids or a family he would be dying today. That when they were done torturing him that he would be staying the jail at the castle.

Virgil tried to talk. The blond man slipped the cloth out of his mouth. He asked if they will be doing anything to his kids. The blond man scuffed and said he wasn't a monster like them. He shoved the cloth back in Virgil's mouth and began to do what they had done to all of the other men. Virgil screamed in pain and even passed out.

Nasir slit Harrison's and Abram's throats at the end of it all. He couldn't stand seeing them pussy foot around death. The other two were going to need doctors, but Marcus assured him that he was going to get ones that he trusted and that they were going to keep quiet about everything. It took almost all day to find a nice spot to bury the bodies. They each dug a hole deep enough to stack at least four bodies and covered them.

When they got back that took the other two to one of the bedrooms and let them actually sleep. The next morning they cleaned and packed everything up into the carriage before heading off. It had been a week to get everyone and do everything. Nasir hated that it took so long, but he did what needed to be done. Marcus gave him a single horse so that he could get back faster. Nasir thanked Marcus for everything he did for him and for his friend. He asked Nasir who exactly is his friend was. Nasir was reluctant at first, but Marcus had a right to know now. He told him it was Ofelia and that the thought of someone hurting her boiled his blood.

Marcus agreed and told him to get going. So that is what Nasir did. It took him half the time to get to get to his village than if he took a carriage. He had went straight to Ofelia's. He hopped off the horse and ran to her house. He banged on the door and almost broke it. There was no answer. He stopped and thought about where she might have been. She did have big dragons. He took off towards the field. He ran as fast as he could, he needed to know she was safe. Nasir prayed she was alright. If she got hurt because he was too stupid to get back in time... he would never forgive himself.

He had just gotten to the clearing. Nasir was running so fast that when he tried to stop he slid. He watched in horror as the dragons going at Vincent.





Image


Marcus walked into the castle Romilly and Harper had just walked into the entrance themselves. Romilly ran up to him and gave him a big hug. She started crying and called him a selfish jerk for not letting any of them know how he was doing. He held her close and ran his hand through her hair. He told her he was sorry and that he just got caught up in the work and that he wasn't used to letting people know how he was. Then he turned to Harper and the both bowed to each other. Harper looked shocked that he would ever bow to her. Marcus apologized for not being there when she arrived. He told her that he hoped she will come to love to live here and that she was okay with everything.

Harper thanked him for being so kind and generous with her and Romilly. She said that she has loved being here so far and that his mom was an angel. He gave a small chuckle at the comment about his mother. He was glad that she was so accepting of having someone from Romilly's home being a personal maiden. Harper also mentioned that Erorn wasn't doing to well. That he has gotten depressed and even might be drinking. Marcus sighed and bowed, excusing himself and letting them go where ever they had planned on going before he walked in.

Marcus got to Erorn's room and knocked softly. "Erorn? I am home." He walked in and saw him sleeping on his bed. He grabbed the bottle and placed it on the nightstand before tucking him under the covers. Bending down Marcus kissed his forehead and whispered that he was deeply sorry.





Image


Elwin had been up for a while. He was already dressed when they walked in. He walked over, bent down and played with Forrest before he stood up and kissed Atlas softly, "Would you mind walking with me to Roshia's? I promised Rowan I would watch her when he had to leave. Roshia is a mover.. she can't do the sitting thing. It would be nice if you came and helped me. I am one man... Roshia is like eight hundred men in one when she is cooped up." He pouted and gave Atlas puppy dog eyes. Forrest had stood up and clung to his father's pants leg, looking up and also giving him puppy dog eyes.

Harper and Romilly had come back from there stop at a little bakery when Romilly asked a servant if they knew where Marcus was. She had no idea why she needed to see him, but she didn't put up a fuss. The servant told her that he was in the springs and would should her to the entrance of the hall if that was okay. She agreed and turned to Harper saying they would meet up later. She watched Romilly leave and was going to go to her room when she heard a crash. Harper hurried into the kitchen to see Erorn knocked out cold on the floor. She called for a servant to help her. One of the butlers picked him up and went to his room. She told him she would take care of him from here on out and crawled into bed with him, gently humming and holding the cold towel on his wound. "What were you doing in that kitchen?" She whispered.

Erorn was barely able to concentrate when he turned to see Harper sitting in the bed with him. "I was getting some bread. I've been drinking too much I needed something to settle my stomach." He was barely able to get the words out clearly. "How'd I get back in bed?"

Harper smiled, he was glad to see him awake. "You really should stop. You could have seriously hurt yourself." She said softly but sternly. She ran her fingers through his hair, "Isn't it obvious? I carried you up here all by myself.". She joked. Her cheeks flushed, "No though... one of the male servants brought you up."

Erorn smiled up at her. "I was just trying to make myself numb." He mumbled. "He didn't even seem to care that I was worried about him. It's like he just went back to how he was before, he didn't even want kiss me. I didn't see the guy for a week and he acts like he's just coming back from checking the fucking mail. Maybe Elwin was right. Maybe I should just force him out of his comfort zone, but that just seems like a violation." He realized that he was rambling. "Sorry to chew your ear off, I also need to apologize for being so grouchy this week. I was just jealous of you getting to be with Romilly while I had to wait for Mr. Insensitive." He laid his head down in her lap and he felt a little more calm. His mom used to do that when he was a kid and he got scared in thunderstorms.

She listened to him speak. He was a mess, but an adorable one. "We are going to be getting married, might as well chew it.". She laughed softly, "It is okay, we kind of understood where you were coming from. I was grouchy from the moment I heard Romilly was leaving till I came here. I didn't even talk to her before she left. I was so angry that she didn't even put up a fight to leave, but now I am here with her. She is a lot less complicated than Marcus, that is for sure... maybe you should push... I mean... has not pushing got you anywhere?" She asked.

Erorn tried to think about what she said for a minute over his headache. "You're right, I proved that I loved him by doing something. I refused to let my vision take him. I took action. But, I've made progress by being gentle with him too. He was letting me touch him. Fuck that guy is complicated. I guess I need to get a little pushy. I might have to give him some loving tonight whether he likes it or not." he grinned devilishly plotting.

Harper laughed a full hearted laugh. She hadn't done that in a good while. "Well I hope all goes well.". She took a minute to regain herself before speaking again. "I am going to be a wreck when she has to consummate the marriage. I am really not looking forward to that at all. She never was interested in men back home... so I feel like this might be force." She said softly.

"Yeah, I'm not completely thrilled about that either, but I'm doing better with that particular issue." He smiled at her sheepishly. He wanted to make her feel better about that, but he didn't really know enough about her relationship with Romilly. "They aren't expecting you and I to consummate our relationship are they? I mean, we could tell them we did just to mess with them. The look on their faces would be priceless." He chuckled. "I could do a lot worse as far as fake wives go, so I'm kinda glad you're gonna be the one. You seem like a sweet girl, and you're a good listener I think if I had a thing for women and you had a thing for guys we'd be a good match, hell you're even close to my height." It wasn't clear if it was him or the booze talking at this point.

Harper froze. "I... I have no idea. Romilly never told me if I had to... This is going to be so awkward.". She covered her face with her hands and groaned. She peeked over her hands down to him and laughed. "I second that. They have driven us crazy already, might as well have some kind of payback... unless they... really wanted us to." She covered her face again, but laughed. She was having fun just talking with Erorn. He seemed like a good man, despite his drinking problem.

Erorn giggled a little bit at the idea of Marcus and Romilly listening against the door waiting for them to consummate. "I don't think he'd believe me even if it did happen. Outside of my armor, I'm not exactly the manliest looking guy. Also, can you imagine how short our kids would be? They'd never be able to reach anything above the second shelf." He laughed. "Well we should probably get ready for dinner soon. I think I'll wear one of the outfits Marcus had the tailor make for me. Make him see what he's been missing while he's been gone." He gave he a gentle smile. "You know, the way you helped me when I hurt myself like that, you'd make a great mother. At least we know if we do get forced into having kids you'll be prepared."

Harper blushed and slide out from under his head. "That is what my mother said... except for the last part.". She laughed softly and stood, straightening her dress. "I bet he would cheer up if he saw you in those clothes, especially if he had people make them for you. You are going to look so handsome." She walked to his door and turned around. "I will see you at dinner, Erorn." Harper smiled and walked out, closing the door softly after her. She was going to change and relax before having to go down and eat. Harper had just gotten by the stairs when he saw Marcus and Romilly. Marcus nodded towards her and walked off towards his room and Romilly stared at her. She was wrapped in a towel, her hair wet.

"What happened here? You are soaked."

Romilly laughed, "I was going to the springs to talk to Marcus about how he should think about others and how worried we were... I got to close and slipped into the springs." Harper shook her hand giggling and hooked her arm in hers and walked with her to her room. She noticed Romilly was walking slowly.

"Did you sprain your foot? I can carry you back to the room. How the hell didn't Marcus see you were in pain."

"I am fine, my foot is fine. Don't worry." Romilly have a small smile. Harper wanted to pressure whatever she was hiding out of her, but then she might not have liked the answer. So she just walked slowly with her into her room. When Romilly started to get changed she could see bruises on her hip start to from. Harper walked up to her and gently pressed them. Romilly jumped.

"What happened... did Marcus hurt you?" Harper didn't get angry often, but she was getting pissed. He didn't think Marcus would be so forceful with anyone... or at least with Romilly.

Romilly looked down at her hips and blushed, "No... it isn't like... Harper..." She looked up at her. Tears were forming and she held Harper's shoulders. Harper's mind didn't want to go to the direction of maybe them going all the way so she chalked it up to him beating her.

"Why would you have bruises then? If he is abusing you we have to tell someone." Harper was going to do just that, but Romilly stopped her.


"He isn't abusing me, Harper. Stop..." Romilly's hand was shaking. Harper didn't want to hear it. She couldn't. It would kill her. "I just... when I fell in... I kissed him and one thing led to another. One part of me wanted to run and the other part needed more. I gave in. I am so sorry Har-"

Harper's heart broke. She thought Romilly loved her. They were so happy before she had to come to this stupid castle. Harper found her way back to Erorn's door and started knocking hard on the door. Her body was trembling. She didn't want to be here. She wanted to go back home and forget this ever happened.

Erorn had just changed into one of the casual outfits that the tailor had made. It was a simple white shirt with a dark green vest and matching pants. There was gold and orange trim all over them and it made his hair look like fire. He looked himself over in the mirror. This tailor really knew his stuff and the outfit flattered all the right aspects. He suddenly heard a knock at his door. He opened it to see Harper shaking. She looked angry and hurt. He pulled her inside and shut the door. "Oh my gods what happened to you? Who did this?" He was ready to go on a rampage. He may not love her or have feelings for her, but she was still his fiance and he would defend her honor.

Harper tried to calm herself down enough to talk to him. She wiped at her eye like that of a child. She didn't want to cry and she didn't want to be in the castle anymore. She wanted to beat Marcus, but realistically she was too small and Romilly was his fiance. They had every right to. "T-They... were in the springs... Erorn they went all the way. She practically threw herself at him." She leaned against the door, the cold wood cooling off her hot back. Harper managed to calm down a bit more to tell him the full story. "Romilly went to the springs to talk to Marcus about thinking about others and what not. Had to do with him leaving and not saying anything. Apparently she slipped and fell in. When I was leaving here I saw them coming up the stairs. Marcus just nodded at me and walked to his room. He knew what he did... then Romilly was walking a bit slow, I thought it was because of the fall... then when I was helping her change there were bruises starting to form on her hips... I... I didn't want to think that happened." She felt like she was going to be sick. She slid down the door and hugged her knees to her chest.

He stood there dumbfounded by what she had just said to him. In spite of all he had said about being okay with the two of them being together, he was hurt. Not hurt by the fact that he had gone all the way with her, but that he had done that with her first. "He did that. He did that with her. It was supposed to be me, I loved him first, not her. I... " he couldn't even finish his sentence he was so angry, so hurt. "I'm sorry, Harper. I'm sorry for all of this, sorry I ever had the idea to do this fake marriage bullshit. I'm afraid I won't be able to marry you. I won't be staying here any longer, you're welcome to come with me if you like. I can't imagine you want to be here anymore either. If you want to come with me, get your things and meet me at the main entrance in ten minutes." His eyes had gone dark with rage and he looked like he could kill the next person to even look at him wrong.

Harper nodded, getting up and falling back. Her legs had been asleep, but she got her composure. "I will go get my things." She hurried to her room and packed what little she had taken out. She punched the bed, crying once more. She loved Romilly with everything she had. Why couldn't she just have waited till they had gotten married? Harper could of had time to get used to the idea. When did she start to fall in love with men? Was she always like that? A billion and one things were running through her mind as she grabbed her bags and made her way into the entrance where she waited for Erorn.

"Yeah, I am pissed about that. I'm pissed that you left me alone for a week and I had to deal with seeing those two be in love while I had no fucking clue if you were even alive. I'm pissed because I've fucking thrown myself at you numerous times and you hide behind your fucking non-existent morals about not wanting to take my innocence. I'm pissed because when you came back you barely acknowledged my existence and treated me like a fucking burden. I'm pissed because you refuse to open up to me and tell me what the hell fucked you up so bad out there that you went back to treating me like shit. I'm pissed because you can't seem to learn from your fucking mistakes and you keep making me scream at you like this. I'm pissed because in spite of all this shit, I still love you. I knew you didn't love me too, but I thought you at least respected me more than that. Guess I was wrong." He screamed at him while packing his stuff. He grabbed his bag and walked past Marcus through the door.

"No, I didn't come after him, I only saved his fucking life." He steamed in his anger. "Fuck! He's not supposed to be right!" He was enraged at himself, he'd never had to go chasing after anyone before. He'd never been in love with such an infuriating man before. He dropped the bag. He opened his door and went to the entrance. He saw Harper waiting for him. "I'm sorry, to do this. I'm not leaving. I still love that bastard, I hate what he did, but I fucked up on this too. I practically drove him into her arms. I'm so sorry."

Harper knew from the moment she saw him that he wasn't leaving. She held tightly onto her bag and smiled, "Okay." When she thought about it she was truly alone in the castle. She walked passed him and stopped. No she was angry. She was pissed beyond belief. She turned around and shoved him. "I am so tired of you men coming in and fucking ruining everything! Maybe Marcus and Romilly are good for each other. You... you..." She grabbed her bag and stormed off she was done. She hated Romilly, Marcus, and now Erorn. They were all fucked up idiots who didn't know what they wanted or were just too much of a puss to go out and get it.

Erorn didn't try to stop her, after she left he turned and looked at the castle. It felt more like a prison now, a prison he locked himself into. He wanted to get lost and this place was big enough to where he could do so easily. He didn't want Marcus to find him or even look for him, he didn't deserve it, he wasn't ready to see him yet. He still felt justifiably angry, but Marcus made a good point. If he were to go after him now, it'd be too little too late. He wandered the halls, not even paying attention to where he was going. He eventually found himself at the top of a set of stairs in a tower. He opened the door. It was dark and rainy outside, looked like a thunderstorm. He still hated them, mostly the lightning. They didn't scare him, but the loud noise hurt his sensitive hearing. He saw a figure standing outside. He suddenly recognized that this was the place Marcus showed him the other night. He took a deep wet breath.

"You're right." He yelled loud enough to be heard over the rain. "I didn't chase you. I'm sorry for that. I'm sorry that I'm not used to this and I didn't know I was supposed to come running. But I'm more sorry that you thought you needed to get away from me in the first place. I'm sorry that you aren't comfortable enough around me to talk to me about what happened to you and that you felt you had to get away from me. I don't know what else I can do for you. I'm here for you and I thought that was something that was clear, I didn't realize I was scaring you away. Be pissed off at me for not going after you if you want, I deserve that. But ask yourself why you walked away from me in the first place. I'll be in my room, don't feel obligated to follow." He shut the door and tried to find his way back.
