A.N- Sorry for not updating, but school has been hectic. All A.P classes are way harder than I originally thought lol.. but today the 10th graders had to take this test So thanks for reading and be sure to review :))
Don'..Me- I hope you want more lol.. Yeah I did at first but I did it to make sure you guys, as the audience, see both sides of the Trojan war. So I decided to make all three go back in time, but Sydney is more of a filler. This is Rachel's story. The Greeks are still in Greece and this is before Paris steals Helen away. About 2 to 4 years before the Trojan war. I'm basing this more off of the movie, but there will be more elements of the actual story than the movie did. So I hope that answered your questions :D
This is really strange I thought to myself as I sat in bed. It was very late at night, but since I didn't have a watch I couldn't tell what time it was. Patroclus has shown me this weird old sun dial but I don't know how to work it. We've been here in ancient Greece for about 2 weeks now, and it sucks. I miss my cell phone and my tv. I miss all things modern. Alex woke up about 3 hours after I did. She didn't take the news as good as I did. She fainted twice. I laughed my ass off. Scarlett is taking it well. Her and Patroclus get along great.
We've been here about 2 weeks, and I haven't seen anyone other than Patroclus and the servants. Its annoying. I miss Rachel, because Alex just isn't as fun as Rachel. I wonder where she is?
Meanwhile with Rachel...
I can't say I've hated it here, but Paris has kept me entertained enough. I always imagined Paris as vain and selfish. He is both those things but he has good side to him. He is kind and sweet when he wants to be. He keeps me entertained during the day. Andromache has been my female company.
Andromache knows what its like to be an outsider here. She told me when she first came here, she was an outsider and no one would talk to her either. Cassandra has been the biggest bitch on the planet, and I don't know why. I mean I get that she can see the future, but wouldn't that mean she'd see me saving her country? She just confuses me.
Priam and Hecuba have been very good hosts when I see them. Hector has been polite, but he's mostly quite and I always catch him looking at me. He's very broody when I'm around him. Andromache tells me he's like that because he doesn't know me, and isn't completely sure of me, but I have a feeling thats not it.
Right now I'm so bored. Its really early in the morning and no one is doing anything yet. So its boring. I'm just waiting for the day when they kick me out. Even now I feel like I'm over staying my welcome.
"Rachel are you going to breakfast?" Paris voice rings out in my empty room. I jumped at the sound of his voice.
"You are really good at sneaking up on me." I said glaring at him. He smirked.
"I don't mean to startle you." Paris said jokingly. "So are you going to breakfast or not?" He continued.
"I am. Why do you ask?" I said confused.
"Breakfast started five minutes ago." He told me. My eyes widened.
"No it hasn't! I don't understand. I read this friggin sun dial thing just like you told me too! I still got it wrong." I exclaimed frustrated. I glared at the sun dial sitting near the balcony.
"Don't worry about it. We can be late. I'm a prince you know." He said pompously. I rolled my eyes at him.
"Yeah. You won't let me forget." I said teasingly. He smirked.
"Well lets go." He motioned for me to come. I nodded and got up and followed him into the hallway. We arrived at the dining hall about five minutes later. The guards opened the door for us when we got to the door. As soon as we walked in the door all eyes were on us. I still wasn't used to being stared out so my face flushed. Paris just smirked and grabbed my hand and pulled us to are regular seats. He sat to the left of Priam and I sat beside him and in front of Andromache. She smiled at me.
"How nice of you two to join us." Priam told us with a mischievous grin on his face.
"It was my fault. I lost track of time." I quickly said while picking some fruit to eat.
"Thats alright my dear. I'm just glad you could join us on the beautiful morning. We must give thanks to Apollo for such a splendid morning." Priam said bowing his head almost as if he was in prayer.
"We must also give thanks to Aphrodite for bringing such an amazing beautiful women into our lives." Paris said teasing me. I smiled as I felt my face heat up.
"Paris." I said elbowing him playfully.
"Rachel." He copied me and tickled my side. I jumped and giggled as I tried to push his hand away.
"Paris stop it!" I say sternly to him while trying to keep a straight face. He stopped and I straighten myself up before looking up. Everyone was looking at us. I felt my face heat up again. Then I catch Hectors eyes, and my smile disappeared. He wasn't smiling like everyone else, he had this hard look on his face like he was trying to hold something back. His eyes were dark, darker than what they usually were. They looked angry, but I must be seeing things. I shake my head and go back to eating. Everyone goes back to their conversations.
"I was wondering Rachel if you would allow us to throw a party in your honor." Priam's voice rang out again. My head shot up.
"Well why would you want to have a party for me?" I asked confused.
"My dear you have become a part of our family in this short time. I would like to take you on as my ward. That means you being introduced properly to Trojan society." Priam said to head shot up and I find he whole table was smiling. Even Hector was smiling and I have to admit his smile is very nice. Cassandra isn't though, she has this nasty glare on her face. I thought about the implications of being King Priam's ward. I would be close to the Royal family, which would be helpful when the greeks invade, but had I really made that big of an impression on the family?
"If your sure thats what you want your majesty, I will gladly except such an honor." I say shakily.
"Wonderful we'll start preparing immediately!" Hecuba said excitedly while clapping her hands together. I smiled as the chatter started back up. The rest of breakfast went by quickly. Everyone left soon after that.
I was walking back to my room with Priska when someone grabbed my arm and pulled me into a empty room. I yelped in surprised. I look and find Cassandra glaring at me. I frown.
"What do you want?" I ask her. She sneered at me.
"I know who you are! I know why your here." She told me. I almost gasped in surprise, but I held my face steady.
"I'm here because the Gods led me here." I tell her shakily. It wasn't a lie, a god did lead me here.
"No you were sent here to complicate things! I won't let you take us down with you!" She yelled at me. I flinched at her harsh words.
"I don't know what your talking about!" I tell her. She was about to retort but someone else said something first.
"Cassandra step away from Rachel now!" Hector told her. Her eyes widened and she backed up.
"Stay out of this Hector." She whispered. "I'm trying to save your life while I still can." She continued on.
"I will not stay out of it. Now go to your bedchambers!" He told her sternly. She glared at me one last time then stormed out of the room. I sighed in relief.
"I'm sorry I didn't know what she was talking about." I told him. He nodded and put his hand on my arm.
"I understand. Cassandra has always been a little off." He explained to me. I just nodded and tried to walk away but Hector blocked my way. I looked up at him confused.
"Since you are to be my fathers ward you should know your new home. If you would like I can give you a tour of Troy." He told me a hopeful look in his eyes. I thought for a moment and decided it would be a good idea.
"That would be great Hector. Thank you." I tell him.
"Tomorrow then." He said. I nodded in agreement. I watched as he walked off.
