At War (Old Version)

*OLD VERSION! :) There's a newer one published now. :D*
Two princesses are fighting a war for their father's throne. Now, they must inherit their father's mighty battle dragons, and end the war, one way or another... But who will win?


33. Princess Korae

"Dismount Kai, or I'll kill him!" She says, holding a knife to Owen's throat.

"You wouldn't." I reply, trying to keep my voice as even as possible.

"Watch me." She snarls, and I finally realise quite how much I hate her. She begins to dig the knife in to Owen's neck, and a tiny drop of blood appears on the edge.

"Stop!" I exclaim, dropping down from Kai, and carefully keeping my eye on everyone in the room, very aware that they could attack at any moment.

"No Korae." Owen says, but I can see the fear in his eyes, "It's okay, if I die, I am just another soldier, but if you die then we will have to live under her." He says, positively spitting the last word.

"I can't let you die." I say, and suddenly I am very aware of how much I mean that. Then, I notice the second boy, just lingering in the corner, obviously not as experienced as the others, my head is absolutely reeling by now, but I carefully formulate a plan.

"Stop it, both of you," the witch whom I call my sister says, "I will let him go, if... you come with us, no weapons, no fights, no tricks, you have to come with us in surrender, or else no trade!"

"Never, you spiteful witch!" I shout, and I run to the boy, pull a knife from my belt and put it against his neck, by this time, Owen has caught on, and with a cry he tears himself from Lyrae's grasp, wrenching the knife from his hand and pointing it in her direction, with the boy still held very tightly, there is little that they can do to stop us. So I mount Kai, holding the boy in front at all times, and as soon as Owen is on, we launch into the sky.
