Yes I know its been a while. Been working on a different story that needed to be worked on. La Rose de l'Esprit.

Something terrible happened to me too so that was another delay. I lost my flashdrive with almost all my stories on it. I thankfully have them all up on here and fiction press, but my chapters I was working on and some plots I had are gone forever. Including my first two stories I ever wrote. Forbidden Love and Love You Forever. I'm still really upset. Especially about the two stories being gone. It took me a whole 6 months to write a half a chapter for my original fairytale The Princess of Lakishea and now it's gone as well as my plots.

Well I know this chapter isn't as long as It should be but bear with me because the next should be longer.

I am dodging stuffed monkeys as I type this from unicorn-skydancer08 who said I better update soon about a month ago. =D

Since there were only two contestants for the T/L story contest I've decided to go ahead and announce the winner.

1st Place: Sink or Swim by unicorn-skydancer08

2nd Place: It's About Time by Iluvhorses1997

As reward for winning first place I will advertise unicorn-skydancer08 on all my next chapters in this and any other T/L stories I publish for a year.


Chapter 12:

"She's gone! He's got her! I just know it! Oh, it's all my fault!" I was pacing around the throne room.

"Tumnus! Stop pacing! You're not making things any better doing that. You're only wearing the floor out." Peter said calmly or rather not so calmly by his tight faced expression.

"I can't! You don't know what it feels like to know you're to blame for the disappearance of your wife and unborn child. It's the most horrible thing in the world." My hands came up to cover my face in distress.

Susan laid a hand on my shoulder. "We'll find her, Tumnus," she said reassuringly but her expression was just the same as Peter's.

"We'll start search right away," Edmund announced, giving Naylandi a 'follow me' look.

I quickly followed after the two. I couldn't wait another minute. I had to find my wife, and I had to find her soon. We all knew Baraei had her and what he could do to her.

"Tumnus, you should stay here. Baraei probably suspects who you are and it wouldn't do Lucy any good if you were caught too. If you were caught you'd be likely to put to death." Peter objected as he blocked my path of the doorway.

My blood was feeling like it was boiling. "Baraei isn't going to catch me and I tend to find Lucy if it's the last thing I do! I don't care who thinks it's not safe. I'm going!" I hastily sidestepped him.

"Very well," Peter agreed as he grabbed his sword and shield which was not far from reach.

Lucy's POV:

My eyes opened and all I could see was black. At first I thought I was back home in Cair Paravel in my own bed. I was in horrible pain. I winced as I sat up slightly. I felt as if I had been punched into the stomach several times on end. I placed a hand over it and felt the baby give a weak kick. It made my heart plummet to think of what had happened earlier. Was my baby okay?

More memories started flooding back to me. First of me slapping Tumnus, my running away, the hand, and then someone smothering my nose with something and then nothing but blackness.

"Tumnus?" I whispered half hoping it had all been a dream.

"Ah, The young Queen is awake I see." It was the most dreaded voice in the world to my ears.

I gasped. My whole body going cold is frightful horror. What made me even more scared was that I couldn't see anything.

"What's the matter, love?" Baraei asked in a sickly sweet voice. "Certainly you knew of my plans. It was just a matter of time."

"You take me back this instant!" I yelled angrily.

Baraei chuckled as the room was lit up.

I immediately sat up straighter as I noticed my surroundings.

I was in a plain small room. The only furniture was a bed, a chair, and a desk. There were no windows at all making the room very depressing and frighteningly dark.

"I'm sorry to say you are not going back ever again." Baraei said with vengeance in his voice.

"I'm not staying here!" I growled in anger. The nerve of this King!

"Marry me or suffer for your part in killing my twin brother." The lantern light made Baraei's face terrifying.

"Over my dead body!" I shouted and lunged at him.

He quickly grabbed me by the wrist and threw me right back down to where I had been. "We can arrange that my dear."

"I wouldn't marry you if you were the last man on this earth." I spat at him. "Besides I'm already married as if you didn't notice."

Baraei glowered at me and at first I thought he was going to strike me. "I am informed." He said sarcastically.

I have to get out of here!

"And I'm pregnant with his baby. You can't marry me, Baraei. Let me go!"I shot up out of the bed ignoring the pain in my stomach that was becoming strong again.

And then I made a break for the door…


I could really use some help on this next chapter!
