Chapter 3

Kanda woke up, tied up. "What the hell?" He asked, looking up.

A red-head teen hit Kanda over the head. "Shut up. We know that you work for the Queen."

"Yeah, but…"

"We need to get rid of him." A bald man with a ponytail said. "He will give away our headquarters."

"He came with another person. There were two sets of tracks," A man said. He looked like a vampire.

"No, we need to take him to Komui. He will know what to do. We need to hurry to alert the others that there is another stranger here." A blonde man said.

The other three nodded and forced Kanda to his feet.

Allen woke to a girl bandaging his ankle. He pushed her away, startled. "Who are you?"

The girl curtsied. "My name is Lenalee Lee, your majesty."

Another woman and man walked in.

"Good, you are awake." The woman smiled.

"Who are you?"

"We will explain, just let me bandage your neck and we will explain." The man said.

Allen felt his bloody neck where Kanda had dug his knife into his skin when he was going to kill him.

The man wrapped Allen's neck and explained the situation. "My lord, my name is Komui Lee. I am chief at this operation camp. We are supporters of King Walker. We are part of an organization called the Black Order."

"The Black Order?" Allen asked.

"Yes. We are a team that is prepared to attack when the kingdom becomes weak."

"You oppose the Queen?"

"Yes. She is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Which leads me to wonder why are you here, your highness?"

"My stepmother, the Queen, tried to have me assassinated."

The girls gasped.

"How did you escape?" Lenalee asked.

"I ran into the dark forest."

"You are very brave my Prince." Lenalee smiled.

"Or very stupid." Komui cut it. "You could have died my lord."

"Yes, but…"

"Komui, he was trapped. He had nowhere else to go." Lenalee said to her brother.

"He could have ran in a different direction. As our Prince and future King, he must stay safe."

Allen nodded.

"Now where is your pursuer? Did he follow you?"

A red-head ran into the room, panting. "We have intruders." He paused when he noticed a stranger laying on his bed, being cared for by his girlfriend, Lenalee. "Who the hell is he?"

"This, you insolent kid, is your Prince the last heir of the Walker throne. Treat him with respect." Komui scolded.

"Prince Allen?"

Allen nodded.

"Oh Komui, we have a man outside. What should we do?"

Komui walked with Lavi outside and looked at Kanda who Krory and Marie were holding. "Kill him." Komui said. "Punishment enough for attacking royalty."

"No. Please don't!"

The two turned to see Allen supporting himself on the door frame.

The two looked at Allen stunned.

"Please don't kill him." Allen begged.

"Why your majesty? He is the man who attempted to take your life, right?"

"Yes, he is." Allen walked over and looked down upon Kanda. "But he did not kill me. He let me go."

"That is very merciful of you my liege, but he could betray you, and I am not going to let that happen." Komui said.

"No please don't."

Lavi pulled out a hammer.

Kanda struggled as Krory and Marie held him still.

Tears fell down Allen's cheeks, "Stop! Please stop!"

Krory looked at Allen amazed as crimson tears fell from his eyes.

"What is wrong with him?"

Komui and Lavi paused.

Tears of blood ran down Allen's cheeks. "Please let him go."

"So it is true, the legends speak of real royal blood, such as the Walker family, shedding tears of blood for their people if injustice was being done." Komui turned to Krory and Marie. "Let him go."

They let Kanda go and he fell to the ground.

The girls helped Allen inside to clean up.

Lavi whistled. "Talk about lucky, if it were anyone else you'd be dead 'bout now."

Kanda nodded, he knew it.

A/N: Sorry for the haitus on my writing. High school and college had me stumped for a while. It is going good though. Today is a good day, finished an essay and it's my birthday. Yay! Thank you for being really patient with me and I am sorry for the wait for any chapters of my fanfictions.
