James cares for his country. But he worries about Isobel and that stirred something inside of him which could stir something bigger in the country.


(It is set in the olden days incase that isn't clear in my writing haha, not quite sure what year, but somewhere waaaaay far back like in the 1400s :D)

14. 14.

We are down on that same road I woke up on the other day and we're nearly home. I feel a buzz of excitement as James slows the horse down.

"Don't worry." he smiles. He has cheered up a bit, though he's still reluctant to let me go home. "I will drop you off by the farm, I just wanted to do this without anyone seeing."

He kisses me gently and smiles at me and we continue down the road. As we arrive at both farms, straight away, my mother, Ezra, Matilda, Elijah's brother Casper and Elijah all rush out of my house to greet me. James picks me up off the horse and brings me down to his level. He moves a piece of hair out of my face, looking at me.

"You alright?" he asks quietly.

I nod, smiling at him.

"Izzy!" Elijah calls as he and the rest of my family reaches where we are all stood.

"Hey!" I grin, running past James to Elijah who spins me around in his arms.

"Hey you." he laughs happily. He puts me down and notices James in the background.

"Your grace." he says and we all courtesy or bow in Elijah's case.

"Thank you." my mother starts crying. "Thank you, your grace, for looking after her."

James smiles. "It was my pleasure, ma'am." he glances at me and we both stifle a laugh at the pun.

"Thank you, your grace." I say, not forgetting our promise to each other to not tell anyone a thing about any sort of relationship between us.

"Of course." he smiles and gets back on his horse. "Good bye everybody."

He starts to ride away and we all go back inside the farm. It's weird being home. I mean, I was gone for a day and I went through a lot mentally. And of course, the prince and I made love, that's quite a big thing.

Inside, we all sit down as my mother pours us all some tea. We all sip away, laughing and smiling.

"Where's father?" I ask, not wanting to ruin the mood, but I have to ask.

"Gone." Ezra grins. "Elijah's parents are taking him to the authorities in town now so Elijah will be staying with us for a while."

I grin. "Awesome."

"So..." Matilda smiles at me. "What happened at the palace?"

I smile on the inside but remain indifferent otherwise. "Oh, not much. I just slept a lot until it was time to come home."

"Oh." Matilda looks dissapointed.

Ezra laughs and ruffles her hair. "It's not all sunshine and rainbows Tilly."

We sit there for hours just talking and eating and telling stories and it's so perfect, but there is a nagging feeling at the back of my mind... I miss James.
