Ever wondered what happened before the times of conflict were stirred between Gwyn and her father's enemies? You'll find out! Note: I don't own Princess of Thieves or any of its characters, and unless I find gold or win the lottery I will never own Princess of Thieves or any of its characters.

GWYN'S SACRIFICE

Gwyn strung her bow. Her long brown hair swished across her face as she leaped off her new horse, Nirvana. She stared in awe at Nirvana's beautiful blue-black coat and shiny gray eyes, but was then stopped by Froderick.

"Miss Gwyn, is it possible that you look really beautiful today?"

Gwyn smiled sheepishly. "I don't know, is it possible?"

"Gwyneth Isabella!"

"Oh, sorry DAD. It's amazing, you did sound like my father just then." She broke away from him. "I really shouldn't call him my father, I haven't seen or heard of him in half a decade. A father is someone who's there."

"Gwyn, I didn't mean to..."

"Froderick, just leave me alone."

She scowled as she walked back to her room, looking at a drawing resembling her father. Sir Robin of Locksley, or more commonly known as Robin Hood. "Father, come back. Please. Dear God, If you really do care, send my father to me. Amen." She knew that was a selfish prayer, but she was very strongly detirmened to see him again.

Froderick sat on a bench with Friar Tuck. "I love her, Friar, I just don't want to tell her."

"If you never tell her she'll never see you as more than a friend, young Froderick."

"She only thinks of my as a farm boy and a scholar, not a husband. She has to let me win at archery now and then just to spare me."

It was two in the morning and everyone in the house was sound asleep. Gwyn visioned her father, from his gray beard to his long feet. All of a sudden though, her dreams were interrupted by a figure cloaked in black. Her screams of terror were muffled by his gloved hand, and he dragged her to his location, Gwyn trying to escape with great determination.

Gwyn woke up the next morning in a dark corridor. The masked figure lowered his hood. "The Sherrif of Nottingham? Why did you kidnapp me?"

"You have something I want. You have the blood of a Locksley."

"Why do you need my blood?"

"To prove with good DNA that Robin Hood is a damned thief and hang him in his sleep."

"YOU STAY AWAY FROM MY FATHER!"

"Calm down, Gwyn. No reason to get in a stromp."

"I'M NOT IN A STROMP!"

"I already have men in five shires looking for your father. This time, he's dead."

"NOT AS LONG AS I HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT! LET ME GO YOU BLOODY BASTARD!"

"No. Not until you give us what we want."

"I'm not going to KILL MYSELF for you!"

"Not unless you'd rather have me kill you with my bare hands."

IS GWYN DOOMED? NO! IF SHE WAS, THE STORY WOULD'VE ENDED BY NOW! FIND OUT MORE IN CHAPTER 2: NOT COMING IF YOU DON'T GET OFF YOUR LAZY BUNS AND REVIEW!!!!
