Chapter 1: The
My body jolted awake as icy water poured onto my tattered body,
which lied in a heap in the dirty cell enclosed on each side by
rigid solid rock walls. I shrived in my soaking clothes that were
ripped and covered in chunks of dried mud and my own blood. My
eyes searched furiously for what caused my sudden awakening and I
found it, a small window hung above me with metal bars at the
top. An empty bucket lay against the bars.... It must have
fallen, on me. I froze, where was I?! My arms wrapped tighter
around myself as I remembered. I was attacked when I was on my
way back from being brutally punished by my teacher and unfairly
forced to clean, the teacher had caught me sleeping in class
'again'. I was only a block away from my house when a black van
screeched onto my path blocking me. I fought back with all my
might, I know I got a few hits in, but they over whelmed me;
there were so many of them... I don't know who they were or why I
am here but I bet it has something to do with that prince guy I
meet a few days ago, I remember one of the bigger men who
attacked me he had a crest on his jacket, a panther. It was that
prince's crest... But I don't know why he would do something like
this. I hadn't done anything wrong had I? I concentrated on our
meeting a few days back.
I was running late that day because I over slept, I was up since
early morning on the computer, in truth I had found this really
sick game... well I guess that doesn't matter. So I was running
full speed to make it to school. I had already missed too many
days and I wanted to pass so I could not miss another one. I was
just crossing Maple Street when *BAM* I was suddenly flying in
the air. I remember as I was falling through the air, there was a
flurry of white as my papers had scattered all around me. Through
all of the paper, I saw green eyes. I landed hard, it hurt like
hell but I just lied there for a second as I wonder if I would or
should be able to get up. But before I could decide a large hand
with thin fingers and pale white skin was out reaching for me, I
hesitated for a second before I took the hand shaking. As I was
pulled to my feet my eyes locked with the man's green eyes. The
rest of him wasn't too bad either; he had light hair that almost
looked silver but at the same time blue... and his body was
killer, he must work out allot...
"Are you okay?" came a sweet voice.
His voiced made me feel calm and safe as if in another world, I
could barely reply.
"Y-yes" I said, barely audible as I stared into his deep green
eyes for a long amount of time
Then I realized, SCHOOL!
"Um... I'm so sorry, but I have to go!" I said rushing to pick up
The man joined me and after we collected them all he held them
out for me and I grabbed them from him, brushing his hand. I
really do hope my face wasn't beat red.
"Uh... Thanks..." I said to the handsome man which was standing
in front of me.
"My name is Jagger." He smiled with a row of perfectly white
"Thanks Jagger... But I really do have to go" I said, realising
I grasped my papers tightly as I turned and ran, not waiting for
him to respond. It wasn't until later when I had seen him on the
news did I learn that man was no ordinary person, he is a prince,
even so I felt drawn to him, everything about him invited my
curiosity. I searched everything I could about him... I know
stalker-ish, but otherwise I wouldn't know what his crest had
I sighed as I slid against the rock wall propping my head so it
faced the door. I didn't know why, I didn't really care why I was
here, as long as I could see him again. The Prince, Jagger.
