The Beast Within

In a world where magic is outlawed and virtually extinct, Princess Fiamatta suddenly finds her world turned inside out by the traitorous word. From royalty, to fugitive, to leader of the rebels, Fia is forced to work with a handsome, arrogant magician she found locked away in a dungeon.

btw, this is my NaNoWriMo story so criticism is much appreciated! Thanks :)


38. Act 37

I felt my mind abruptly halt. Everything seemed to stop as I stared into his completely serious gaze. There were no signs of joking anywhere in his countenance. And then, as if someone turned the power switch back on, my mind jumped into override; thoughts flew through at a mile a minute. Luckily, they came out much slower, and one at a time.

“Logan I can’t.” I said with a heavy heart, but then I sighed and switched my answer, “I mean I don’t know.” Then again after a moment I felt compelled to switch again, “Maybe one day.” I gave up and just slightly shook my head, “I have no clue.”

He nodded when I had finished. “I understand, once this is over you must rule your kingdom. But perhaps one day, after this is all finished we can talk and figure it out,” he paused, waiting to see how I would react to that solution. I mulled it over in my mind for a moment before I nodded in agreement. He leaned in and kissed me softly, “I would do anything to be with you Fia.” His soft whisper tickled my lips, making me smile, but his words carried an even greater effect. He had never called me by my name before; it was always princess in a sarcastic tone. The way he said my name made my skin rise up in goosebumps. The tenderness and heartfelt emotion that was carried in his voice made it feel almost as if he was verbally caressing me.

His arm snaked around my waist, pulling me in as close as possible. I rested my head against his chest, listening to the steady beat of his heart. We laid together silently as his hand slowly traced up and down my spine, sending tingles through me. For the first time in a very long time I felt complete serenity. This is where I belonged.
