Royal slave: chapter 22
I growled. They came prepared. There was no mistaking now. They knew all along that i would leave and search for Shadow. They had this all planned out way better then i had. "let me leave!" I yelled and felt Tails cower against me. He was scared for being caught and brought back. I laid a hand on his shoulder as i tried to reassure him that it wouldn't happen. As if it could work. I couldn't even assure myself.
"we can't. you need help, honey. don't you see what this slave has done to you?" My mother said. "oh i know what he has done to me alright. He has made me the happiest person in the world when he accepted my feelings." I said. "and there is no way in hell that i'm going to let him go!" I yelled and reached for a nearby chair.
I took hold of one of the armrests. I roughly threw it into one direction. Making it crash into a window. I was still on the ground floor. So i took Tails into my arm and jumped out through the window. I was thankfull for my speed. Without it i couldn't have done this. Those guards would've caught me without any trouble.
Tails held tightly onto me as i ran to get us out of here. This was terrible. I was back at the beginning. I had no clue as to where Shadow was and i knew for sure that i couldn't go home anymore. If i did, then my parents would try to 'heal' me from Shadow's 'manipulation'.
I stopped in the middle of the forest. I let go of Tails and put him back on the ground. "are you okay?" I asked and he nodded. He was a bit shaken up, but he seemed to be just fine. I sighed and looked around. I had no idea where we were right now. We were in the forest, i knew that much, but where in the forest?
I sighed and scratched behind one of my ears. This wasn't easy at all. Not only did my only clue to Shadow end up in a dead end, but now my parents were even on a manhunt to find me.
My fingers stroked over the sepia photograph that i was holding in my hand. I was sitting on the bed in one of the old bedrooms in this old mansion. I was still trying to comprehend what my owners, or actually my grandparents, had just told me.
This was all so much to swallow. My mom being a princess and having a forbidden affaire with my dad, me being a royal because of it. Instead of being treated like a low class slave, i should've been treated with atleast a little more respect. Knowing that all of this was taken away from me made me so angry. I had been beaten for years, sometimes even untill i couldn't walk form the pain anymore, and it was all because the duke.
No wonder that he had this peculiar hate for me. He wanted my mother as his wife, but it was my father who she fell in love with. He despised my father for it and apart from my eyes and streaks, i looked exactly like him. That's why i was in this situation. He wanted to take all his hate for my father out on me.
That coward. How dare he take his anger out on innocent children. I couldn't imagine what he would do to Sonic if he would marry his daughter after finding out that he had a relationship with him. Or not to mention, what he probably will do to me.
But that didn't matter. I was out of the slave house and finally with some poeple i could trust. And those poeple were even my own grandparents. I didn't even think they would still be alive, but they were and i was gratefull for that. And all those things that i went through didn't matter to me anymore. Everything was going to be okay now.
