5. Captured

~~Maeve’s POV:

I was running as fast as I could like Harry said, but then I accidentally stepped in a small hole, and it made me trip. My ankle twisted, and I heard a snap as pain exploded through my ankle. I looked down at it, and saw that there was blood all over it, starting to stain the bottom of the sweatpants, and a small bone sticking out. I let out a shriek before I could remind myself to try and be quiet, and then just curled up on the ground after my efforts to stand up proved fruitless.

It’s still raining, and I’m freezing cold again. I literally have never felt worse in my entire life. I just curl up as tightly as I can, and cry to myself, only broken by periodic coughing fits.

David’s POV:

We take the dogs out in the woods, and after about forty minutes, I see her. She’s curled up on the ground, whimpering and crying, coughing too. Huh, what’s wrong with her? I walk over quietly, and see that her left ankle is broken, or at least I think that’s safe to assume as there’s a lot of blood and a small bone sticking out. It’s also bent in a way that makes my stomach twist uncomfortably.

I bend down and pick her up, yelling, “I’ve found her!”

She looks up at me, and seems confused and scared, but then she starts coughing again, and seems too weak to really do anything at all. I carry her back to where the others are, and page Noah, telling him that we’ve found her, and should be back late tonight.

Once all that’s settled, I have one of the guys knock her out, and we head back quickly. Once we reach the castle, the princess is stirring, and I know she’ll wake soon. We take her up to Noah, who asks, “What the hell happened to her?”

I shrug, “I found her like that. She ran… I think she must’ve twisted it or tripped on something.”

He nods, and calls for a doctor, who sets the bones quickly, waking her the rest of the way with a shriek, and then a coughing fit. He puts a cast on her foot and lower leg, and then says, “I think she’s sick as well Noah. She’s running a fever, and you just saw her coughing.”

Noah nods, and says, “Then give her medicine for that as well as the pain killers. I’ll need her ready for the wedding. It’s only a week from today now that we’ve found her.”

Princess Maeve asks, “What wedding?”

Noah chuckles, “Ours of course princess; you’re the rightful heir to the throne, and so for me to become King, I need to marry you.”

She shakes her head a little, “I’m not marrying you… You’ve killed everyone I care about. No.”

He just laughs, “I can have your precious little body guard killed too if you don’t wish to cooperate princess.”

My eyes widen, and I ask, “You have Harry? Where is he? I demand to see him right now.”

Noah shakes his head, “You’re not really in the position to be demanding things, now are you Princess?”

She sighs and says, “Please don’t hurt anyone else. I’ll marry you, just… just don’t hurt him, please.”

Noah shrugs, “As long as you do everything I say.”

She stays quiet for a moment, but then nods, and says, “Fine, but if you hurt him or anyone else, I won’t cooperate, and I hope you know I’m serious.”

He rolls his eyes and smirks, “I think you’ll do what I want no matter what happens sweetheart. I’m quite persuasive.”
