Arthur escaped from the castle again with his horse. According to him, life inside the castle sucks as hell, everything gets on your way, not letting do whatever you want.
He got out from the castle by disguising as a carriage man, thankfully it worked, the security inside was so tight. Arthur went out to town to see what his people doing.
'Lively as always huh...?' he thought as he tied his white horse at the fences.
He always loved this town, the smell of the foods and the kind and cheerful people. He walked and walked until he got satisfied, and then, he saw a familiar looking girl with a (h/c) hair and (e/c) eyes.
He approached to her and talked to her.
"Hey there, can I ask what's your name, miss?" he said with a calm voice.
"__..." you replied shyly
"Your last name, please?"
"I don't know..." you bowed your head down and slowly left.
"Wait!" he turned around and took a hold of your hand. The cap on his head fell, revealing his "identity"
An old man saw Arthur and said...
"It's the prince! Prince Arthur is here!"
The people looked at him and the guards that were searching for him... chased him. His face was like 'Oh shit!' Arthur dragged you to his horse and went to the hills, far away from the town. The guards lost track of him but they were still searching for the prince.
"Why do they need to follow me?!"
He said as he kicked the tree
'This is Prince Arthur?!' you thought, you've never had the chance to see him before because you're always working.
"Well... I'm so sorry for dragging you here" he smiled a bit while scratching the back of his head
"I-It's okay... Oh, I should get to work now, the landlady will get mad at me" you ran
"Hold back your horses!" he said
"W-what is it?"
"I still have tons of things to ask you"
"But I have to go now, I still have works to do"
"I'll talk to that bloody landlady" he talked like a commoner.
"You said you don't know your last name right?" you nodded "Can I ask what's the name of your parents?"
"I don't remember... I'm just an orphan..." you mumbled
"Can I go now?" you asked
"Let's bring you to the castle, shall we?" he made you sat on his horse and went back to the castle.
A Prince always get what he wants, it's useless to oppose
'I'm so dead if I come back alive to the shop' you sighed
"Are you okay?" he asked
"To be honest, No"
"Haha, you're different from the other girls there, Eh...?" he sometimes talked like a pirate...
"What do you mean?"
"You see, if the young gals there see me, they squealed, it's so irritating like they're going to break my bloody eardrums!"
He was fun to talk to, it felt like you're only talking to a commoner. He was kind more than you thought, you thought he was cruel. Night came, You both arrived at the castle, he went down and kicked the gate open (as a greeting?), he was freaking strong, breaking the big gate and its lock. He brought you down by your waist and led you inside. It was big, of course. His servants were lined up and greeted him.
"Dinner is ready, Prince Arthur" said the maid
"Yeah, I'll eat later" you two went upstairs, to his room. He left you there without a saying a thing.
'What am I doing here? And why did he bring me here at first place...?' you banged your head on the wall.
'And why this place is so familiar to me...?' you thought
"My lady, please come with me" said the maid. She led you to the bathroom, the tub was waiting for you. She suddenly removed your clothes and pushed you to the tub with bubbles in it.
"Are you Prince Arthur's woman?" she asked while scrubbing your hair with shampoo.
"Eh? No way..."
"Really? How rare"
"What part of it is 'rare'?"
"Prince Arthur don't bring women here in the castle, he even mentioned that he's not interested with them"
"Is that so...?" You're so puzzled why he brought you here...
"Oh, what's your name?" you asked
"It's Mary, my Lady"
She told you to wear the white fluffy dress there on the hanger for "bedtime"
"Hey, what do you mean bedtime? I'm going to sleep here?!"
"Didn't Prince Arthur told you?"
"No, he didn't"
"Anyways, please wait at his room, I'll bring your dinner there" she left while you went back to his room.
You found the prince sitting on the window while drinking tea.
"How's the bath?" he asked and smiled
"Leave that aside and Please excuse my rudeness, please tell me the reason why you brought me here" you said with a serious look.
"You'll find that out soon" was only his reply
"Now, just eat dinner and sleep"
The maid came with a tray on hands and she placed the plates on the table. You ate without hesitating, you're so hungry after all~
"Thanks for the food"
Arthur yawned "I'm so tired..." he picked you up and laid you down.
'?!' was your reaction
"Just rest, I won't do anything..." he said and pulled the blankets for you.
"Well then, Goodnight my princess" he kissed your forehead.
