Lovers Against the Kingdom (Story Excerpt)

“I promise, my lady, I will come back for you.”

He pressed his full, warm lips against mine so hard that my words of protest were stifled. And then he was swiftly gone, slipping down the dark tunnel and disappearing into the shadows.

You cannot leave, I think, my soul weeping for him. They will catch him surely, and they will know what he has done. To think the king would show any sympathy would be laughable if it weren’t so frightening.

I must stop him. The thought rings through my head more clearly than anything I’ve ever known. Whatever the cost, I must stop him.

I don’t hesitate, but rather, I plunge into the darkness after him, feeling along the walls, heading straight to the dungeons of the castle.
