When the war had ended, we thought all was done

What do you do when you've spent the last five years of your life fighting for freedom and suddenly everything stops, the tyrants are dead and the revolution has won?

Write, you might say, but the restoration of the country to it's former glory in the elder days of the King is not going to be as easy as they thought. Especially when the new king is not all he seems to be.


4. Chapter 3

(*Written in the third person*)

Jordan Phillips looked up from where he'd strapped to a chair towards his captor. All he could see was a few tangles of hair sticking out from behind a full-face mask.

"Where am I?" He stuttered, unsure what to say or do. Would struggling against the weird jacket they'd shoved over his head do anything?

"Nowhere of your concern."

"Okay," he swallowed, trying a new question, "Why am I here?"

"Don't you know already? I assumed one of such heritage would know it, but clearly I was wrong?"

"That doesn't answer my question"

His captor laughed "Much more like what I was expecting!

"What were you expecting?"

"Ha! I like your personality already! Which is good, after all I have to be you for quite a while!"

"What do you mean- be me?"

"You are the heir to Movellasland, and that is why you are here. You could say I'm after your job"


"Well of course. Why else would I take you prisoner? I sent faithful men to bring all information of the royal family tree, and unless you wish to go back further than a sixth cousin once-removed of the old king, you are the last of that line. There is no other"

"How exactly do you think you're going to fool everyone? You can't just cover your face with that mask and say "I'm King- King Jordan" and have everyone obey you just like that"

"You'd be surprised what I could do to make sure I look like you! What anyone could do if they have the brains. It seems you don't. Not a good trait in a king" he sneered

"I'm not a king! What makes you think you'll get anything out of this?"

"Not yet maybe, but you will be soon. Oh, and while I'm at it, try to struggle free of that jacket and it will tighten. Just to warn you, it's a straitjacket"
