'We must go rescue her!' I stand up, a fierce front growing in my chest. I had to find and save her.
'And how exactly do you suppose are you going to do that?' the dark stranger spat out at me, his underlying anger dwindling my growing bravery. What was his problem?
'Well I... I,' I stutter as he stands up, his shadowing looming over me. He pulled back his hood. I gasped. It was the Prince who lead me from the dungeons.
'We barely made it out alive from the castle because of you being so... human.' He spat. That pissed me slightly.
'Well I'm sorry I wasn't brought up and trained like a pompous royal brat like you were!' I snap back, finally done with his attitude. His body tensed as I flung my words at him, his demeanour hardening.
'Oooooo you've gone and done it,' Hester mutters as she diverts her eyes. His blue eyes glowers into mine before he sweeps off into the woods, leaving the campsite into a stony silence. My face burned from the argument, shame and guilt washing over me.
I sat onto the ground before the tree, breathing out a breath I didn't realise I was holding. I look across the fire to Hester, who busies herself with the traveling bags. I lean against the trunk, looking up into the branches to the unfamiliar sky. I smile remembering reading Harry potter, the only magical world I believed in where they go to a midnight class in the Astronomy tower at Hogwarts. I lose myself in my thoughts of Harry, Ron and Hermione, falling asleep at the base of the tree.
