A/N: So I was watching Anastasia when I got a cool idea for a fic...of course I'm funking it up and changing it a bit but yeah...just thought I should tell you where the idea comes from and that I don't own that or One Tree Hill...that those ideas belong to the people who wrote it!
The magnificent summer ball took place in the ballroom of the huge palace - home of the king and queen. Only the most important people were invited to the ball - a guest list that the king and queen had approved. King Jimmy James danced happily with his wife, Queen Lydia James, in the middle of the dance floor. He laughed as he watched his eldest daughter - Princess Taylor Rebecca James, 16 - dance with one of the charming guests. Then he looked up to where his father - the matriarch King Whitey James - sat in his chair, looking over the room. He smiled as he saw his younger son - Prince Jake James, 13 - sitting next to his grandfather...looking extremely bored. Suddenly a wind swept by him and he looked down just in time to find his youngest running past him and up the steps to her grandfather who welcomingly embraced her.
At 8 years old Haley Annabelle Lydia Elizabeth Yvonne James was the baby of the royal family. She had blonde/brown hair, hazel brown eyes and a smile that could melt anyone's heart in an instant. Her brother Jake protected her with all his might and she was her grandfather's favorite grandchild - even though he denied it.
Haley giggled as she jumped into Whitey's embrace...obviously very excited to see the old man. Jake smiled down at his little sister before he looked back up again towards the crowd.
"Grandpa!" Haley laughed as Whitey placed her on his lap and gave her an affectionate kiss on her forehead.
"My dearest Hales...how are you honey?" he asked and Haley smiled.
"I'm great! Look what Jake gave me!" she cried enthusiastically as she showed him the necklace around her neck. It was a simple black thick cord with the letters H A L E S on it. Whitey gave Jake a look before he returned his gaze to her.
"Well isn't that lovely dear...now see I got you something to...but I'm not sure it's as beautiful as what your brother brought you..." he said as he pulled a necklace out of his pocket. Haley's eyes grew wide as she took the necklace into her hands. It was a silver chain and on it hung a silver cross. It was to big for her but she held it tightly in her hands as she hugged Whitey.
"Oh Granddaddy thank you!" she cooed as she hugged him and Whitey smiled.
"It's a pleasure darling..."
Nathan Scott - 10 years old, the butler's son and childhood playmate of Jake - tumbled out of the hallway and onto the huge stage at the top point of the hall. The black haired, blue eyed boy ruffled his clothes as he stood up straighter. He looked wide-eyed at the huge party before he turned his eyes to King Whitey, Prince Jake and Princess Haley. Even at the simple age of 10 he found himself intrigued by the little girl who seemed to possess a beauty like no other person. For a moment Haley turned to him and their eyes met. He smiled at her and she smiled back. Suddenly he felt someone pull him backwards into the hallway. When he looked up it was his dad - staring at him with anger in his eyes.
"Nathan Scott! What did I tell you about going in there?" Dan Scott asked warningly and Nathan looked down at his feet.
"Not to do it..." he said silently and Dan nodded as he pushed him further down the hallway and into the service area.
"That's right...now go back to your brother...you shouldn't leave Lucas unattended..." he said and Nathan couldn't help but smile.
"Dad...we're twins...I'm only older by five minutes..." he commented but the look from his father sent him into silence as he walked off to where his brother was.
Haley watched as the boy was pulled away before she returned her eyes to her grandfather and smiled, still clutching the silver necklace in her hands.
Hours later Haley was starting to fall asleep so Jake, being the caring brother that he was, excused himself from the conversations going on around him and picked Haley up. He carried her to her room and softly placed her in the bed, tucking her in.
Nathan walked in the hallway, just coming back from dropping his brother off at home. He whistled as he walked until he suddenly heard a loud crash and shots went off. He immediately ran towards the huge hall and looked through the small window towards it - the horror mirroring in his eyes.
People were screaming.
Blood was everywhere.
People were dropping like flies.
He watched as the terrorists held up their guns to the royal family and shot them all...without even hesitating.
The shots rung out as they fell to the ground. He stifled his own scream as he ran towards Haley's room.
Jake, who had heard the noise, was standing up when he saw his sister waking up from the noise. He knew his face was deadly white...he knew. Suddenly Nathan burst into the room.
"You have to get out now!" he yelled at them, scared for all of them.
"Why what's going on?" Jake asked worriedly as he helped his sister up.
"Terrorists! You have to go!" Nathan snapped as he ran to her wall and started feeling around till his fingers moved over the space he was looking for. He gently pressed the wall at various places and in seconds a door swung open. He ignored Jake's surprise as he pushed the two of them out of the door. Haley looked back as she dropped her silver necklace.
"My necklace!" she cried as Jake pulled her away and Nathan pushed her.
"Go! Now!" he yelled and closed the door, picking up the necklaces as he turned around.
Within seconds one of the terrorists stood in front of him - cursing him in a language that he didn't know. Then a shot rung out and Nathan fell to the floor, the necklace still clutched in his hand.
Jake anxiously pulled Haley along as she cried her eyes out. He knew what it meant...everyone was dead...they were the only ones left alive. He saw the train up ahead and he ran to it...trying to pull Haley along with him.
"Stay with me Haley! Come on...we're going to jump onto this train!" he yelled back as he let go of her hand and the people helped to pull him up into the moving train. He turned towards Haley and stuck out his hand.
"Take my hand Hales!" he yelled and Haley pushed out her hand till their fingers touched. They both tried as Haley got more tired from running alongside the train that was picking up speed. Suddenly someone bumped into Haley and sent her flying.
"Haley!" Jake yelled as the people pulled him into the train as it moved away...the last time he saw Haley she had hit the floor.
Haley's head hit the bench and her body crumbled to the ground sending her into a deep sleep as her brother moved further away from her.
