Never a Choice

I never thought my life would end up being a fairy tale, well hey it definitely has a plot twist or two.
And in the end I finally got my Prince Charming.


53. The Family Tree

 I was glad that I was sat down. Why have I got the complicated family tree going on? But-

'Wait my father is back on my world... he's the stable boy isn't he?' I protest to Tanderish. He looked at me with a grave face and I knew this was going to be a very hard pill to swallow. I started to fiddle with the bottom of my shirt, anxiety filling me on what I was about to know. I'm starting to hate all this secrecy around my family. 

'Teresa, your father never actually left this world. The Royal Guard caught him the night before your mother's planned escape and sent a doppelgänger in order to try and stop you all from the other side,' He began. A cold chill ran down my back. Who have I been living with these past years then?!

'He's been held, brainwashed and all sorts in the dungeon for years upon years and well... he isn't your father anymore, he's the King's cold blooded assassin,' Tanderish finished, facing the fire with dark eyes, the shadows casting a different perspective on his face. A Darker version of the calm elf. 

'So why didn't the doppelgänger attack me or take me back through a differing portal?' I asked quietly, whilst my hearts breaks down into a million more pieces. Tanderish looks back at me.

'To that my dear, I do not have the answer to. I'm sorry Teresa, I'll tell Caspian to come back in he'll help,' he smiled at me before gracefully standing up, gliding to the door and stepping through. I sat there, my mind fuzzy as I realised all that I had been told...dammit. 

Cas walked in slowly, trying to gauge my mood and how I was dealing with this.

'Are you alright?' he asks, sitting down next to me. He slowly puts his hand over mine. Although feeling sad, I couldn't help but feel the little jolt and leap that my heart gave with the simple contact.

'Hey,' he said softly, lifting my head so my eyes met his. 'Everything's gonna be okay,' he smiled before pulling me close, hugging me as my mind began to clear. I hugged him back what seemed like a good ten minutes before I pulled away slowly, tucking my hair away from my face. We looked at each other, just waiting for something to happen.

'I um, I might read for abit, I-I need to just forget for a little while,' I smiled meekly at him. 

'I completely understand, hey there is other ways to deal with this you know,' he countered. My heart beat a little faster at his words... what could he mean I haven't really done much with a guy... is he thinking of that? What if-

Before my brain could explode with overthinking, he kissed me lightly, his thumb grazing my chin as small butterflies tickled up my body making me smile into the kiss as he pulled away.

'Did that help?' he asks, a mischievous smile playing on his face. If I'm honest I do feel a lot better... I replied by kissing him, feeling glad that something is good about today.
