Once Upon A December: Prologue
In a land far away, there lived a kingdom.
It was called the Kingdom of Ediov. This kingdom was ruled by the royal family, the Onodera's. The royal family was good, and treated their villagers well. They always made sure to help everyone, even the poor. They never raised the taxes too high, and they made sure that everyone gets fed or helped out in some way.
The Onodera's have ruled this land for decades, they were loved by everyone. The king's name was Akito Onodera, his wife's name is Kiku Onodera. As soon as they were married, they had a child. A son.
A big celebration was held in honor when the child was born, his name was Ritsu Onodera. Prince to the Ediov kingdom. When he grew up, he would take over the throne in his father's place.
The boy grew healthily, though he was not as physical as the king expected him to be. He mostly sat at home and read books, he really enjoyed reading. He's very shy and soft spoken, but his good looks make up for that. His shiny dark brown hair and those glittering emerald eyes stole the hearts of maidens all over the country.
When he was sixteen, he was engaged to a women named Kohinta An. Even though he was resentful to this engagement, he had no choice but to marry her when he was seventeen. He treated her quite coldly, he hardly kept up a conversation with her, and he ignored her presence most of the time.
An, desperate to get her husband to love her, did anything to please him. But when it came to sex, forget about it. Ritsu refused to have sex with her on a daily basis, and when she asked why not, he would respond:
"Because I believe sex should be shared between two people that love each other."
Ritsu knew he was being unfair towards her, since it wasn't her fault that her parents forced her to marry him, but he still felt bitter over the whole marriage. Even though it wasn't his nor her fault, it was his controlling parents.
He wasn't happy, he didn't want to be king anytime soon, but he had no choice.
A couple years later, it was Christamas. So of course a big celebration was held in honor of it.
That's the night his whole life changed.
He was in the ballroom, dancing, laughing with a few good friends, and having a great time when the doors to the ballroom flew open. When he turned, he saw an evil looking man standing in front of a line of dark armored knights. His heart began to beat so fast that he felt as if he couldn't breathe.
"Kill them! Kill them all!" The man dressed in all black yelled, his brown eyes glittering.
Next thing Ritsu knew, people were being slaughtered. His father, his mother, An, they all died right before his eyes as they tried to escape. The royal guard tried their best to hold down the castle, keep the invaders out, but they couldn't. They were caught off guard and easily defeated.
"Run Ritsu!" His father yelled, blood spilling from the wound in his stomach, he coughed but blood onto the dirt floor, "As long as you live, there will be hope for Ediov!"
Ritsu had no choice, he kissed his dad's forehead in farewell and ran. He made it out the castle, taking a secret passageway only he knew about to escape. He made it out into the woods and ran his hardest to get the hell out of there.
The kingdom was overturned to a darker force, the new king's name was Haitani. He had reward out for whoever found Ritsu, and brought him to him, alive. So he sends out his best, most trustworthy and loyal knight, Takano Masamune, to find and bring him back to the castle.
The Fallen Prince was out and in hiding, plotting, waiting, to take his kingdom back.
