James cares for his country. But he worries about Isobel and that stirred something inside of him which could stir something bigger in the country.

(It is set in the olden days incase that isn't clear in my writing haha, not quite sure what year, but somewhere waaaaay far back like in the 1400s :D)


6. 6.

"Go." I whisper to Tilly and my mother as we enter the gate of our farm and I see my father stumbling over to us. Ezra has already gone hunting, he went right away because we were out of meat at home. "Go inside, now."

"No, Izzy-"

"Now." I say firmly and they both scurry into the house.

"Where have you been?" my father asks as he is within hearing range. His words are slurred.

"The palace." I say, standing my ground. I just made a promise to never run from him; he isn't worth it. "Your son got knighted and you didn't even know because you were too busy and intent on a bottle of ale-"

He whacks me around the side of the face making me fall to the floor. An ache spreads throughout my whole head and I spit out blood. I am about to get up but he kicks me in the stomach again and again until I am struggling to breathe. He makes it worse by kicking me all over my torso, yelling words at me that I can't understand because I can't really see anymore either; I just see dots dancing in my vision.

"Stop!" I hear a yell, a slightly familiar voice, clear through the fog.

Immediately my father stops, yet he is yelling at whoever it is that's there. I can't understand him again and I can't understand whoever else is there. All I hear is a whisper in my ear.

"I'll get your mother and your sister instead."

Then everything goes black.
