I'm so sorry about not updating in so long! I hope some of you are still following this story! A lot has been going on for me... But without further ado, the story:
After leaving Eugene's cell, the guard returned me to the King and Queen. I knew they were going to ask me more about my life. They probably thought I was the princess, but that was crazy. I wasn't a princess! I've lived in a tower with Mother my entire life, and I've never known anything but that. But if they have to question me to settle this, I suppose they can. They are the king and queen after all. As soon as I reentered the room, I was ushered to sit in the seat in front of the king and queen.
"Now, I know this may seem very strange to you, but we need to ask you a few more questions," The queen seemed hesitant about talking, like she didn't want to scare me or something.
"That's alright. I completely understand. And I just want to say, that I'm very sorry about what happened to your daughter. I'm sure one day you'll find her."
"Thank you, that's very kind, but I'm afraid we've given up ho...pe." The queen looked so upset, and I felt bad for her but there wasn't much I could do.
After a minute the kind took over in talking. I could tell he was upset too, but he had better control of his emotions. "Now, we only have a few more questions for you. The first one being, what does your...mother look like."
"Well, she's about six inches taller than me, she has dark brown hair, brown eyes, and she wears a red dress."
"I see." He almost seemed disappointed, "Is there anything strange, or out of the ordinary about her?"
"I don't know, not really I guess. She never lets me out of the tower though, is that what you're getting at?"
"Not exactly. I mean, are you sure she has brown hair? There's nothing out of the ordinary about her appearance?"
"Oh! Yes, sometimes there is. Occasionally she comes home with grey hair and a few wrinkles, but after I she brushes my hair it...Oh no! No one was supposed to know that, mother is going to be so upset." I have to fix this somehow! What if someone tries to cut my hair?
"Rapunzel, please tell us everything. We have to know, it's very important. We promise not to tell anyone anything you tell us."
They seemed trustworthy, but mother always told me in the case of my meeting someone, not to tell anyone about my hair. " Okay...mother has always told me that ever since I was a baby my hair has had these healing powers. And since mother is really old, when I sing to her it makes her younger temporarily."
"I see, but she never let you out of the tower, why?"
"Mother always told me that if I left, I would probably be kidnapped for my hair, and I didn't want that to happen. So I stayed with her, because I knew that if I left I wouldn't have anyone to take care of me." Suddenly it hit me! She wasn't my mother! She's using me for my powers. Maybe I'm the lost...no I can't be, can I?
"Rapunzel, I know this may be a shock to you, but we both had a feeling that you are our daughter. After what you just told us, we know we were right."
"So, I'm...I'm the, princess?" This was a lot to take in! But I wasn't skeptical anymore, I knew I was the princess. I don't know how I knew, but I just had this feeling that everything they were telling me was true.
"Yes, we believe you are." All of a sudden I felt overwhelmingly happy. I finally had something I was sure about, and I was so glad I finally had a really family. The king and queen, I mean my mom and dad, looked happy too. They stood up and walked over to my seat. I stood up too, and we all immediately embraced.
"We're so glad you're finally home!"
"I am too." But then, a sinking feeling came over me, "What about Eugene?"
"Who?" They both asked at the same time.
"Eugene, I mean Flynn. What's going to happen to him?"
They both looked at each other before answering, "I think he has done so much for us that it's only proper to clear him of his charges and release him."
"Thank you so much!" I hugged them both before we all walked to the prison to order the guards to let him go.
When we reached his prison cell, Eugene looked so distraught. The king, I mean my dad, cleared his throat and he looked up. When he saw them standing there, he looked frightened, but then he noticed me standing beside them. As soon as he saw me, he smiled, "So you're the princess after all?"
I was so shocked! He knew, and we hadn't even said anything. Now I was curious, "How did you know?"
"I just had a feeling," as soon as he said that he must have remembered our conversation earlier because all of a sudden he looked sad again. I wanted to say something, but I felt it was probably better if my dad said something, so it seemed more official.
Just when I thought I would have to say something he spoke up, "Guards! Open this cell and let this young man out. His charges have been cleared for returning the lost princess to us."
Eugene looked so shocked at what was said that I had to giggle. But when the doors opened, I flew into his arms. "Eugene! I'm so glad you're okay!"
"Me too Blondie, me too." He hugged me back, and we stood there for awhile until my dad cleared his throat.
As soon as I heard that I was going to be released, I was so happy. But then I realized it was because they had finally figure out that Rapunzel was the lost princess, "So you're the princess after all?"
"How did you know?"
"I just had a feeling," I knew from the minute she started talking about Gothel, and she looked so similar to the queen. Now I knew I had really lost her. Even if I wasn't hanged for my crimes, there's no way they would let her have a relationship with me.
"Guards! Open this cell and let this young man out. His charges have been cleared for returning the lost princess to us." When I heard that I was overjoyed. I wasn't going to be hanged! I knew I must have looked shocked though, because Rapunzel was giggling.
The door was only open a crack when Rapunzel jumped into my arms, "Eugene! I'm so glad you're okay!"
"Me too Blondie, me too." I knew this was probably going to be the last time I was ever allowed to see her, so I hugged her back for as long as I could. Unfortunately as long as I could wasn't long enough, because the King cleared his throat after two seconds. I knew they were going to tell me to get out of the castle, they didn't want me with Rapunzel anymore. When I looked up, they were both smiling sadly at us.
She didn't even give him enough time to finish what he was going to say, "Please don't make him go! I love him!" My heart leapt at what she had blurted out, and I could feel my face getting warm. I loved her too, but she was a princess. It was probably better off that we weren't together.
The king sighed and gave a little smile, "Alright. There's nothing much I can do about it. If that's how you truly feel, then I give my consent."
