Here's the next chapter my lovelies! I promised you more of Edward and Bella so here you are!
I heard a door open and close sometime later. I jolted up, scared it might be Hades himself to come and cast another spell upon me so that I may be weak and fall for his lustful nature again.
"Hello Mistress!" I high-pitched voice chimed behind me.
I was unprepared for this child-like voice so i screamed and looked towards the voice. But what I saw only calmed me a little. It was a woman or a young girl, seemingly younger than I and shorter as well. She was dressed in a blood red toga with beautiful embroidery Her hair was pitch black and barely reached her shoulders. Her eyes were green but also to have a mix with gold as well. Her skin seemed utterly perfect and porcelain.
"Who are you?" I asked as I tried my best to keep my distance from her. Yes, she seemed beautiful and innocent but...I didn't know her truly.
"I am one of the Lord's advisers. And I'm also to be your new lady-in-waiting. But I hope in time we will become good friends." She finished with a sincere smile. I relaxed slightly.
She extended her hand towards me as her smile grew bigger. "Come my lady. It's time for you to leave this depressing room and tour your new kingdom with me at your side."
"I'm sorry but I do not know you at all. How do I know I can trust you and I've just met you?" I questioned as I stood my place on the bed, refusing to move until I had proof I wouldn't be harmed.
"My lady, you have no need to fear. Surrounding this kingdom is the Lord's most trusted and skilled warriors ever known throughout the world. No one shall bring harm upon you." She said with a certainty that I could not shake off as a lie. "Also, if I were to allow anyone to harm you or to harm you myself. The Lord will have my head without having to think twice." She said as I saw fear flash before her eyes. Her shoulders dropped about an inch as she hung her head a little. It was in that moment that I saw the truth of her words and realized she was telling the truth.
"Okay, I will trust you." I said as I placed my shaking hand in her small one.
The moment I placed my hand within hers, her eyes lit up in excitement and the smile was once again placed gracefully upon her face. She helped me slowly get off the bed.
We walked the short way to the door when I remembered something very important.
"Wait!" I said as I placed my hand on her shoulder to stop her. She was only able to open the door about two inches when she felt my hand and turned to look at me.
"I'm sorry but," I said as I tried to puch back my fear of the unknown world outside of the room I've been confined in for who knows how long, "I do not know your name."
Her smiled returned as she giggled softly at me.
"My name, My Lady, is Alice. And you are Isabella." She said softly.
I became confused and shocked. How does she know my name?
"I have been waiting for your arrival for sometime now, My Lady." She continued as if she didn't see the shocked expression upon my face.
It was then, while in my confused state-of- mind, that Alice fully opened the door.
Hello my lovelies! I know it's been a very very very very very long time since I posted a new chapter but I was going through a lot in my life but I'm happy to say that things are now going good and I'll be able to post up new chapters for now on. I told you I didn't forget this story and now I'm back to finish it! I know this chapter was short but I owed you something since I've been gone for so long. Please tell me what you think!
