The page breaks still aren't working...which is weird. I'm sorry it took like a month for me to update, but I do have a reason. I have 3 or 4 pages of this already written, and then I lost it. I couldn't find it anyway. Writer's blocks didn't help either. I re-wrote the whole second half just for you guys. I would like to thank everyone who reviewed. I hope you enjoy this.
Disclaimer: I don't own DP. I only own Elizabeth in this story.
Deadication: I would like to thank The Sleep Warrior for helping me with this. Thanks Eylse. I know you won't be able to read this right away, but that's ok. Good luck in college!
My Princess Part 2
Danny phased back into Tucker and his room. Tucker was lying on his bed eyes closed, but felt the ghostly presence of Danny.
"So how did it go? I knew that she would listen to you"- He stopped when he opened one eye to Danny Phantom, and no Sam.
"Dude, where's Sam?" Danny punched the wall blasting a hole into it.
"I'm such an idiot!"
"Danny." Tucker started trying to calm his friend down.
"She's so stubborn!" He exclaimed ignoring Tucker's question. Tucker winced; Danny was mad, and when he was mad, nothing could get through to him.
"I take it that it went bad."
"What do you think?" Danny snarled at him.
"Back off, I was just asking."
"She's so stubborn. We did all this work and for what; nothing!"
"She's staying here with him over going home with us. Can you believe that? She didn't want to come home. She is mad at for something I didn't say." Danny continued to pace the room until Tucker's hand grabbed his shoulder.
"You're going to wear a hole through the floor."
"We're leaving." Danny barked at Tucker, who jumped back in surprise.
"You heard me."
"But what about Sam?"
"She already made her decision."
"We can't just leave her." Danny threw his backpack over his shoulder.
"Why not?" He snarled.
"She's the one who wants to stay here."
"What if she gets in major trouble?"
"That's her problem, not mine." He turned back to his friend.
"She picked him over us."
"I'm not leaving her." Danny opened his mouth to respond when the door burst open.
"Get them. They were conspiring to kidnap my queen." The next thing they knew, they were knocked out.
The halfa glowered at his chains. They were the only thing preventing his escape. They held him no matter if he was in human form or in ghost from. He struggled to break the chains while thrashing about. His eyes landed on Tucker's body; he was still knocked out cold.
"Don't bother Phantom; those chains are made so prisoners don't escape. It doesn't matter if you're human or not." Danny knew that voice.
"Dora?" He asked incredulously.
"This might come as a shock to you I suppose, but I made the Prince angry. He took my medallion and threw me down here."
"What did you do, not bow low enough?"
"Do not mock me; the prince is easily angered. I actually feel sorry for your friend." Danny heard her sigh.
"If he gets mad with your friend, who knows what he'll do."
"What will he do?" The girl didn't answer.
"What will he do Dora?" His voice was more threatening this time.
"He is coming." Danny did not hear any more from the girl. He heard a door open and footsteps. A blue wisp fell out of his lips.
"What do we have here?"
"Aragon." Danny hissed.
"Daniel." The Prince nodded back.
"Let me out of these chains Aragon."
"Prince Aragon to you." He snapped.
"You're no prince." Danny shot back. Aragon's hand slapped Danny's cheek.
"Don't speak to me like that." A small trickle of blood dripped down his chin from his lips.
"Did you really think she would want to come home with you, when she could stay here with me?" Danny's eyes narrowed at him.
"What did you do to her?" He demanded.
"I didn't do anything. Anything she has done is by her own choice, but a little guidance never hurt anyone." A smug smile spread across his face that made Danny feel sick to his stomach.
"I was aware of your plan the whole time. Really Danny, I had you choose the girl after all." Danny's head hung in despair. He was so focused on Sam since he had gotten here, he didn't notice his ghost sense go off. It was his fault. The Prince turned away from him.
"Why?" The Prince answered the halfa's question.
"I wanted to obtain what no one else has, a human bride. I guess I should be thanking you. You are the one who chose Samantha."
"Don't call her that. No one calls her by her full name." A sudden fire was brought up in Danny.
"I will call her whatever I like. Don't worry Daniel, Samantha won't miss you." Danny gritted his teeth. The prince called over a guard with a single hand gesture.
"Keep them here for now. Tomorrow with my signal, take them out into the country side, and shoot them."
Sam tried to sleep that night, but the fight with Danny kept replaying and replaying in her mind. It wasn't supposed to turn out this way. Now she would never see him again.
"Sam." Sam instantly recognized the voice; Elizabeth.
"It's your wedding day!" Sam nodded sadly keeping her eyes glued to the floor. She had always pictured her wedding day, what it would be like, but she hadn't expected this. She was going to be married in a few hours without any friends or family.
"Why do you look so sad? Cheer up! Its bad luck for a bride to be unhappy on her wedding day." Sam's eyes shifted to the little doll that Hannah had given her. They needed her, but she needed her friends. She just couldn't do this without them. Danny's eyes were engraved in her mind. It was how he had looked at her last night. His eyes confused with anger and jealousy, sadness, and a couple other things she couldn't explain.
"I'm not sure."-
"If you love the Prince? Who else is there?"
"No one." An image of Danny flashed through his head. Elizabeth's head fell slightly. If Sam truly didn't want to marry the Prince, she shouldn't have to.
"Sam, I'll be right back." She left the room. Sam's hands played with the wedding dress. A few moments later there was a knock on the door.
"Who is it?" She called out.
"Margaret. It's time!" She said excitedly through the door. Sam looked down at the floor. She was the one who sent Danny away. Now she had to live with the life she decided.
"My head." Tucker groaned. His eyes started to focus on his surroundings again.
"Aragon." Danny spat bitterly.
"What?" Tucker asked weakly.
"HE threw us in here; something about kidnapping his queen." That got Tucker's attention as his situation hit him.
"I'm too young to be in jail!" He shouted as he started to thrash about trying to break the chains.
"Tucker, would you stop it!" Danny yelled. The boy calmed down and stared at Danny in disbelief. He never acted this way. A single tear rolled down the halfa's cheek.
"It's all my fault." There was a silence that seemed to waste eternity
"What's going to happen to Sam?" Danny's eyes closed. It was hard to just hear her name. The thought of Sam flashed through his head.
"She will be fine. She is marrying Aragon in a couple hours." He imagined Sam laughing in a wedding dress. She would be laughing. She should be on her wedding day anyway. Tucker stared sadly at his chains. He had really hoped it wouldn't have come to this. He had always wanted Sam to be with Danny, not anyone else.
"What will happen to us?" Danny's eyes shifted to the floor wondering whether he should tell him.
"What will happen?" The silence that the African American boy endured was torture.
"They're going to kill us." Tucker remained silent after his best friend's answer. The two stood listening to whatever was talking. It was probably the guards talking about how they would kill them, they didn't know for sure. Tucker eyed the skeleton in the corner and shivered.
'I'm too young to die. I haven't even dated a cheerleader yet.' Raced through Tucker's mind. An image of Sam ran through Danny's brain. Prince Aragon had tricked her. He didn't know how, but he did, and now Sam was in danger. He had to save her. He needed to. It was his job to protect her, and be there for her, just like she had down for him. She was his friend whether they were fighting or not. Horrible images played in his mind of all the things the Prince would do to Sam. A righteous fiery ran through his veins. His hands glowed green as he started to blast at his chains.
"What are you doing?" Tucker was obviously startled by Danny's rash action.
"I have to save her."
"But I thought you said"-
"I know what I said." He snapped. Tucker flinched at his friend's anger. Danny's face suddenly softened. He stopped firing.
"Things change Tucker." He paused.
"She needs her friend to help her right now, even if she doesn't know it. I'm saving her whether she likes it or not. Prince Aragon can't have Sam." The dungeon door creaked open, and both boys held their breaths knowing that it could be their last minutes of being alive. The footsteps were lighter than before. Tucker let out a sigh of relief when a girl appeared instead of a guard. Danny eyes widen with realization of who exactly the girl was.
"Elizabeth." The girl simply smiled, and held up the keys to the jail cell.
"Do you need a little help?" Just the noise of the keys jiggling made Danny be filled with hope.
"You must hurry." She told the boys as she unlocked the chains.
"Ask questions later." She pushed them to the stairs.
"The wedding is starting, if you hurry, you can still stop it."
"Why are you doing this?" Ticker gazed into her eyes as his best friend took off in search of Sam.
"Because I wasn't here by choice and neither was she. He tricked her into thinking that her friends and family didn't want her back."
"How?" Tucker was flabbergasted.
"His medallion. It also holds the power to turn him into a terrible beast."
"What can we do?"
"I gear it's up to your friend now." He started to leave, when a thought occurred to him.
"What's going to happen to you since you let us out?" The girl managed a small smile.
"Don't worry about me. I'm not scared of Aragon anymore." Tucker nodded and disappeared. The girl's smile faded.
"At least it will be nothing that he hasn't done to me before."
She took small steps while approaching the Prince who stood at the alter. A frown was cast upon her lips. The ghost at the alter kept tricking her eyes. She could have sworn she saw Danny up there instead of Aragon. She bit her lips to stop crying.
"Get yourself together Sam." she whispered bitterly to herself. The music finally stopped when she stopped right next to the Prince. The ghostly man started the ceremony.
The only thing running through Danny's head was Sam.
'I have to save Sam. She can't marry him!' He phased through everything flying furiously to where he heard the music playing, but hearing the music only made him fly faster.
"And do you Samantha Manson forever take Prince Aragon to be your husband?" She felt her heart raced. She realized at that moment that she couldn't do it. She couldn't marry him.
"SAM!" A desperate voice cried out. She knew that voice,
"Danny." Needless to say, Prince Aragon was outraged.
"YOU!" He pointed a finger at the boy. His voice was filled with nothing but harshness.
"Who let you out of the prison?" Danny's face lifted up into a smirk. Sam's mouth fell agape.
'Prison what's going on?" Her eyes were set on Danny, but she sent cursory glances between the boys. She felt dizzy, her head was getting light.
"Aragon, I challenge you. Winner keeps Sam." Aragon's eyes flashed a deadly yellow.
"You don't know who you're messing with boy." He let out a roar as hi s body shifted into one of a Dragon.
"I'm invincible." He hissed. It was too much information for her to handle; Sam blacked out.
"Sam." Danny cried as he watched her fall to the floor. A strong tail hit him in the side. Danny could hear his bones crack as he slid onto the ground.
"Never let your guard down." The dragon hissed. Danny stood himself up holding his side. This would be a lot harder than he thought. His hands glowed an eerie green. He had to do it, he had to save Sam.
Tucker ran towards the church area. It wasn't hard to figure out where they were; just look for all the people running for their lives as well as the blue flames flaring out of the church. He was too late to warn Danny of Aragon's powers, but that didn't mean he couldn't help.
"Danny, watch out!" Danny ducked as a fire blast came directly towards him.
"What do you think I'm doing, taking a vacation?" Go look after Sam." He ordered. When Tucker's gaze landed on Sam; he gasped. He ran to aid her; she was out cold.
"Come on Sam, you can do this." But the girl didn't move.
Elizabeth stepped towards Dora's cell.
"Dora, long time no see." A smug smile traced along her lips.
"Be quiet Elizabeth." Dora snapped bitterly.
"You let them get away. Traitor. You know what the Prince will do."
"Yes I do, but I don't care anymore." She snatched the medallion off the hook on the wall.
"I'll take back MY medallion." Dora rattled her chains in attempts to free herself forgetting that she couldn't escape.
"You would be nothing without me. You would be a simply peasant girl. I gave you all of this in return of the medallion." Elizabeth was fazed at all by Dora's shouting.
"Well maybe I don't want this anymore." She turned hot on her heels and left the prison with the yelling of Dora behind her. She tied the medallion around her neck. Her hands trembled.
"I don't know how long I've wanted to do this."
Danny had to admit that Aragon was strong; really strong. He had been hit more times than he had the opportunity to punch. Out of the corner of his eye he saw Sam stirring awake. For ten seconds she was the only thing he thought about.
"Danny, watch out!" Tucker yelled. A tail knocked him full blown into his stomach sending him into the wall.
"She's mine." The dragon hissed as he hovered over him.
"NO. SHE'S NOT!" Danny gritted his teeth as he sent the biggest ecto-plasmic blast he could handle with all the damage he had received, and aimed it at the heart of the beast. The creature stumbled back. Danny rushed over to Sam thinking the battle was over.
"Sam." He asked hoping that the girl would answer.
"Danny, I thought"- Danny placed his finger over her lips.
"I'm here now." He took a deep breath.
"Sam, I'm sorry"- A load roar interrupted his apology.
"I never loose."
"Danny, watch out." Sam's eyes widen in horror as she watched the tail of Aragon knock Danny full force into a remaining wall. Danny clutched his stomach trying to relieve the pain. He fell to his knees, but this time; he didn't get back up.
"Danny." Sam's world was crashing down. He wasn't moving.
"You little pest. You just couldn't wait till we were done with the wedding could you? I was so looking forward to killing you, but now I get to do it personally. I had it all planned out. I admit that she wasn't easily fooled. All though that little brat Paulina helped a lot." Sam's eyes widened with realization. Everything he told her was a lie. Even when he said he loved her.
"No!" Sam cried as the dragon readily for its final blow. She closed her eyes not daring to watch. She heard something hit another object and winced.
"Danny." She allowed one eye to open. Now there were two dragons fighting. She saw his back rise and fall. He was breathing. He was alive. She rushed over to his body.
"What do you think you're doing?"
"What I should have done a while ago." Her tail smacked him across his face. The other dragon stumbled back. Her eye lined up with Tucker's for a single moment. The boy smiled at her. Her claws dug deep into the other dragon's back. He let out a scream of pain, yet she refused to let go. She soared up into the sky. The ceiling started to come down.
"Tucker, we have to get out of here." Danny's arm was slung around her shoulder allowing his feet to drag. Tucker didn't move.
"Tucker." She yelled louder. Tucker ran over to her picking up the other half of Danny's weight. The two ran to the specter speeder. Sam placed Danny inside as Tucker tried to start the thing. He tried once, and then twice, but it took till the third time to actually get the engine to purr
'I wonder why it didn't work before.' Sam's eyes remained on Danny watching his chest rise and fall.
'Please be ok Danny.'
"What are you doing?" The male dragon hissed as Elizabeth reached for his medallion.
"Taking back what you stole from me, and making sure you don't trick anyone else anymore." With one shift motion she ripped the medallion from his grasp. The male dragon morphed back to his human self.
"You'll never do that to anyone ever again." With one final blow the medallion was smashed into pieces.
Danny groaned as he woke. He turned his head to meet Sam.
"Sam, where, when, how"-
"It's over now Danny. We're going home." Her eyes were cast on to the floor.
"You were right." Danny raised one eyebrow.
"About what?" Sam felt her cheeks grow warm.
"Everything." She decided would be a safe answer. Danny smiled at her. She would be once again hanging around them; just like she used to.
"Danny, why did you come back for me?" A light pink tint spread across her cheeks. He jointed in the blush fest.
"Friends never give up on friends." He laced his hand in hers. It felt right, yet he knew that she couldn't have liked him like that.
"You need to rest. I'll look at your wounds later." His eyes threatened to close. He didn't want to leave Sam presence even if she would be there when he fell asleep.
"Oh and Danny." A smile graced her lips.
"Thanks for coming back for me." Danny returned the smile as he slipped into dream world.
'Anything for you, my princess.'
A.N.- Well wasn't that sweet? I liked the ending, and I hope you did to. I have so much fun writing this, even if the second half seemed rushed. Did it seem like that to anyone else? I'm sorry if it did. I think it's because I had most of the story in the first half. Reviews are nice...
