As the palace doors opened, the servants went quiet. Out of the room walked six knights guarding the royal prince. He slowly looked around to see priests, maids, and other knights line the
“Its just as I thought” He quietly said to himself.
“That’s the new prince?” the servants whispered to each other, “I heard they found him in a slave camp.”
“This cannot possibly be our prince...”
The prince took a deep breath and slumped over. One of the knights nudged him on the shoulder
“Stand up straight”
“Oh, right...” he quickly stood back up. “When can I go back to my room?”
None of the knights answered. They lead him down a long hallway to a huge room. He sat down in a big chair and the knights left. He looked up to see a lady, who he assumed was the professor, standing on the other side of the table fumbling with a piece of chalk and leaning against a blackboard.
“Good morning my prince, It’s time for your studies, your highness.” she said as she started to write on the board.
“When can I go back to my room...?” the prince asked as he put his head down.
“As soon as you finish reading pages 61 to 213” she smiled and opened her book.
The morning went on and on. After reading, the prince slowly made his way out to the court yard. He sat down in a bench when suddenly knights rushed to him and surrounded him.
“Your highness you can’t be out here, there could be an assassin”
“I’ll be fine....” He slumped over
“If It makes you feel better you can leave one with me...”
“I’ll stay” a female knight said as she walked over to him.
“Ok then, you guys can have the day off” The prince waved his hand.
“As you wish sire” they quickly walked away.
“A bunch of killjoys. That’s what they are...” the prince smiled as he stretched his arms.
“Yes, yes they are sire” the female knight said.
“Name?” she turned to him.
“Whats your name?” he chuckled.
“My name, your highness is May Urusumi”
“URUSUMI. I’M NOT A BUNNY” she quickly snapped back. “M-my apologies” she blushed and bowed down.
“No problem. I’m Sangaru Heruykoro.” he smiled at her “You can call me by that.”
“I-I wouldn’t dream of it sire” she stammered.
“It’s fine, oh, have a seat, take off your helm too, it’s 90 something degrees outside” Sangaru moved over.
She slowly sat down next to him and pulled her helmet off. She had long, black hair, that came together in a ponytail. Her eyes were a dark blue, like the depths of the ocean. She slowly turned and looked at Sangaru, then quickly looked away. Sangaru’s eyes widened but quickly turned the other direction and wiped some blood off his nose.
“Urusumi” she sounded angry.
“Right sorry. How long have you been a knight?”
“I've been training all my life to protect the prince.” she said boldly...Then her voice got quiet “But it turns out the prince is nothing more than a slave.”
“N-n-nothing sire, it was nothing.”
“R-r-right...Sang-a-ru” she stretched out his name
“I heard what you said by the way” he smiled at her
She quickly got up and pulled out her sword then aimed it at herself. Sangaru quickly got up, kicked the sword out of her hand, and pulled her hands back.
“Hey! What do you think you're doing?” he said holding her back.
“I deserve punishment!” she dove for the sword.
“No way” he leaped for it just in time and threw the sword into the fountain.
“Sorry, but you're not dying today.” he sat back down and took a deep breath “Plus you’re right....I’m not fit to be a prince...” his face sunk.
“Oh well...guess what’s done is done” he smiled at her.
She quickly kneeled down.
“Please I still deserve punishment”
Sangaru thought for a moment, then reached for his bag. He handed a book to her and she held it in her hands and stared at it.
“Umm…” she seemed dumbfounded
“It’s my homework...” he bent down and looked at her “You see, I was planning to go fishing this afternoon and...”
“I understand I will finish it for you....” she started to flip through the pages vigorously.
“No I wanted you to get rid of it”
“Huh?” she looked up to see him holding out his hand.
“I was wondering if you wanted to go with me”
She blushed then quickly pulled herself up.
Suddenly a loud boom filled the air, the turned around to see smoke spewing out of a building. Then the alarm rang.
“The bell rang three times..We have a terrorist” she ran towards the area.
“Wait, I’ll go too.”
“No sire, it’s too dangerous”
“Screw that, this could be fun”
He ran to the fountain and grabbed the sword then started to sprint to the building.
“You should go get the others, this won’t take long” He waved at her.
Suddenly small red particles filled the air around him. Then in a flash of bright red, Sangaru was gone. A trail of broken stone and torn up rubble showed where he was heading.
Sangaru quickly came to a stop in a center of a small village. Out of the smoke rose a huge oger like monster with an axe. It roared at him and stomped its foot.
“Whew, you caused all this? Man, I was having a nice time with Urosagi too...aw well” Sangaru held up his sword. “I’ll just get rid of you first”
The oger ran towards him and swung the axe at Sangaru. He quickly jumped back. The sword started to glow bright red as he swung it up. Instead of making contact with the oger, the sword sent out a gigantic red, crescent shaped slash. It ripped through the oger and kept going, before it finally stopped it had already torn through a mountain.
Sangaru turned around to see the other knights arriving on scene.
“Oh hey, see I told you I got this”
“We're glad you're ok-...” she stopped and started at the trail the slash had left.
“Yeah..I guess it was kinda over kill?” Sangaru scratched his head
“Whoa! Urosagi I got a fish” he pulled the pole up to show a big fish on the other end of the line
“Oh...” she didn't even look up “Is that so...”
“Something wrong?” Sangaru laid down the pole and sat next to her
“Come on.. Be completely honest with me...” he nudged her on the shoulder “I give you permission.”
“Really?” she looked at him.
“Well… YOU'RE A COMPLET IDIOT, NOT ONLY DID YOU LEAP INTO ACTION WITHOUT KNOWING A THING ABOUT THE ENEMY, BUT YOU ALSO DESTROYED A MOUNTAIN AND A VILLAGE IN THE PROCESS. NOT ONLY THAT BUT YOU’RE NOT EVEN ACTING LIKE A PRINCE! WHAT KIND OF PRINCE WEARS SHORTS AND GOES FISHING?!” her face was completely red. She took a deep breath then smiled “Better...”
“W-wow...” Sangaru laughed “I’m sorry I can’t be your ideal prince....I’ll try if you want to”
“Yes, yes please.”
“Fine, starting tomorrow I’ll be a prince... On one request...”
“You be my personal body guard.”
“I-uh-well” she started to blush.
“Hey. You said you trained your whole life to protect me didn't you? Plus you’re the only friend I've made so far...” he smiled at her “I’m not taking no for an answer”
“Y-yes, I’ll do it!” she wiped tears from her eyes and smiled at him.
“G-great, now, let’s get back to the palace...” Sangaru stammered as he wiped the blood from his nose.
