Arthur escaped from the castle again for the who knows my many times with his horse. According to him, life inside the castle sucks as hell, everything gets on your way, not letting you do whatever you please. No matter what you do, you were always get dictated.
He got out from the castle by disguising as a carriage man, thankfully it worked unbelievably, the security inside was so tight. Arthur went out to town to see what his people doing.
'Lively as always...' he thought to himself 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 terribly familiar looking girl with a (h/c) hair and (e/c) eyes. He approached to her and talked to her without a second thought.
"Hey there, can I ask what's your name, miss?" he said with a calm voice. He didn't care what she'll think of him.
"_-_____..." you replied shyly, surprised at the unusual question.
"Your last name, please?"
"I'm sorry but I don't know..." you bowed your head down and slowly walked away. Arthur Kirkland could only watch you.
"Wait!" he ran towards you 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!' as 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 their prince.
"Why do they need to follow me?!" If only his brothers were there with him, they will ask him where was his common sense.
'This is Prince Arthur?!' you mentally panicked. You've never had the chance to see him before because you're always working but now he's here on your side. Alone.
"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 away once again.
"Hold back your horses!" he commanded sternly.
"W-what is it?" you were now more pressured than ever.
"I still have tons of things to ask you"
"But I have to go now, I still have works to do. Please, just let me go."
"I'll talk to that landlady, so please just stay here with me for a moment." he talked like a complete commoner without this "prince-aura" on him.
"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, never wanting to hear that bitter childhood with no parents.
"I see," was just the only thing you received.
"Can I go now?" you asked once again.
"Let's bring you to the castle, shall we?" he brought you up on his horse and went back to the castle in a jiffy.
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, deciding to face the consequences later.
"Are you okay?" he questioned, worrying about your almost-pale face. "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 are squealing, 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 because the guards were still on search and he didn't have a key with him. 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 gently guided you to the tub with bubbles in it.
"Are you Prince Arthur's woman?" she asked while delicately scrubbing your hair with shampoo.
"Eh? No way... He just brought me here."
"Really? How rare"
"What part of it is 'rare'?"
"Prince Arthur don't bring women here in the castle except for his ball date; He even mentioned that he's not interested with them," the maid stated disappointingly.
"Is that so...?" You were so puzzled why he brought you here...
It was your turn to ask, "Oh, what's your name?"
"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 brightly.
"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.
It was so confusing.
