"I can't believe that just happened.... How could I possibly not realize that I was nude and... ugh!" I was still miserably embarrassed at the thought of what Lu must have been thinking. "Not to worry, young master. I'm sure it'll be just fine." It was the maid coming back in for the seventh time. Lu was still away with the little bonfire or whatever that she had going, so the maid had been hitting on me while she was away. "You know... I could help you with any stress that you have with a few little motions." I rolled my eyes and shooed her away again. "Maybe later, then?" She called in a soft voice as she left the room. "Not in a million years..." I mumbled under my breath. I wasn't trying to be mean but I didn't want her... I only wanted Lu........
"He did what?!" I yelled as the guard told me of the betrayal." The guard dipped his head down sorrowfully. "I saw it with my own eyes. I even have this." He handed me a hastily-taken picture. I nodded and paced the throne room slightly. "Alright... Bring him before me and I'll... I'll settle his punishment... the proper way."
The maid had come in while I was sleeping and had slipped into bed with me. I only woke when she slid her hand toward my more personal areas. "But... but..." she stammered as I stormed out of the room. A guard nearly slammed into me as I opened the door and the maid rushed to hide under the blankets. "The Queen would like to see the two of you in the throne room... Now!" He growled, squaring his shoulders and looking me in the eyes. He was about a head or so taller than me and was quite muscular. I could see why Lu had chosen him for her head guard. "It's about time she called for me... Maybe we can work this out now." The guards eyes widened and I heard him growl low in his throat. As he turned an began walking, I followed close behind. "I don't know what you see in that maid. She's the whore of the castle. But... Lu will settle things." Before I had a chance to ask him what in the everloving hell he was talking about, the throne room doors opened and he stepped inside, leaving me in the hall as he went to stand beside Lu's throne, where she sat with her legs over the armrest in a black and red mermaid ballgown. As she saw me, she sat correctly and stood, looking behind me as she did. "Come in, both of you!" She demanded, the look of pain, regret and utter hatred on her face. I walked in and, listening closely, heard who I presumed to be the maid come in behind me. As I neared her throne, she motioned for me to stop and kneel. "Lu, what are you-" She cut me off with a growl and I did as she wanted me to. "I have evidence that you and the maid before me were in bed together. Is this true?" She asked, the pain in her eyes becoming even more evident. "Wait, wha- Oh, no! Lu, I can explain! I didn't-" She cut me off again and motioned to her head guard to bring me closer to her. He walked over and grabbed me roughly by the wrists, pinning them behind my back as I was brought closer to her. "Explain this, now, before I am forced to punish you." "I'm afraid that I will have to explain this... He wanted me instead of you, Mistress. And, as you know, maids have to please their masters." Lu's eyes filled with tears as she backed away from me. "Lock him up in my room, for I do not believe what this maid has said. Ty, look after him and do not let him out of your sight." The guard nodded behind me. " As for the maid, lock her in the dungeons. I need a few moments to think and assemble those that must be assembled. I will return shortly." I opened my mouth to call after her, to explain, to comfort her, but she walked out of the room and then ported out of this realm and into somewhere else. "You really fucked up, Zayn. I'm not sure my queen will even truly come back to us." I let my head hang as I was taken to Lu's room and locked in with Ty. "I can't believe that she would even consider this as a possibility. I would never do this to her..." Ty looked at me sorrowfully and, as I sat down on the edge of her bed, he took a seat in the chair across from me. "Ok, let's hear it. What did Sasha do to you?"
