Chapter 1- Suitors
Great, more suitors, I am honestly getting sick of them. Mother and father act like they care for my wellbeing when it comes to love but in reality all they want is for me to marry a rich man so they get profit from it. I guess that's all parents these days though. The amount of suitors that have knocked on my door has gotten worse too since I turned 17 last week. I try to sneak out of the house so I don't have to greet them and most times I prevail, but lately my parents have been on guard, especially my father. I wouldn't mind the suitors if they all weren't stuck up jerks. Pardon my language but that is the truth. All they want is, well, to put it in more polite terms, they are not looking for a relationship. Let's just say that Boston doesn't have a reputation for caring men to say the least.
I walk out of my bedroom quietly so my parents do not hear me; they are probably having their morning nap. I listen carefully for their snores from downstairs; you can hear father's snores from a mile away, especially since he had a glass of ale about an hour ago. I put on my green cloak and make my way out the door, shutting the door very carefully behind me so they don't hear the creaking of the wood.
Finally, outside. Don't get me wrong, I don't like Boston in the slightest, but it's much better than being kept up in your room all day with the smell of rum and burnt wood. I wander around the markets for a bit, just looking at the trinkets and food that people are selling. I guess that's the only thing I like about Boston, all the exotic food and ornaments that you can buy. I push my brown hair out of my face, curse this ridiculous weather. I am not a fan of the winter either, which brings my mood down a lot considering Boston gets so much snow.
A deep voice pulls me out of my thoughts, I turn and I am face to face with one of my many suitors. Fantastic. His dark, shaggy hair is just above his green eyes, it must be Luke. Luke was one of my first suitors that came knocking on my door one morning, and just my luck, he's rather arrogant.
"Good morning Genevieve." Luke greeted me. "How wonderful to see you again."
"I wish I could return the sentiment Luke."
"Oh don't be like that Genevieve." He reached for my arm, but I stepped back so I was just out of reach. "I was just about to go to your house to see you, but it seems I don't have to anymore." He smiles at me, but his smile isn't welcoming, it's filled with lust.
"I would love to stay and chat, but I have some errands to run." I said quickly, ignoring his last sentence. I turn on my heel and start to walk away but he snatches my wrist and pulls me towards him.
"I'm sure they can wait." He said slyly. I wasn't going to get out of this one, Luke is quite tall and I am on the petite side. I'm not that small for my age but when it comes to height, Luke is a head taller than me. I try to pull my wrist out of his grasp, but he squeezes his hold on me which makes me wince slightly. "We can do this the easy way or the hard way Genevieve." He threatens. Luke starts to pull me towards an alley way, all I can do is follow; his grasp on my wrist is too tight. I open my mouth to scream but his rough hand covers it. "Ah ah ah, Genevieve. We wouldn't want anyone to hear us do we?" My instincts kicked in and I bit down on one of his fingers that were close to my mouth as hard as I could. He staggered back and let out a cry of pain.
"You bit me! You are going to pay for that you little wench!" He reaches down to his belt and pulls out a small pocket knife. I step back towards the wall and he grabs my shoulder to keep me still. There's nowhere to run, he's going to kill me, he's going to kill me. I close my eyes and wait for the impact of the knife to my skin. Suddenly he released his grip on me and I slumped to the ground. I opened my eyes to find a hooded man standing with his back facing to me. I looked around the man to find Luke on the ground with a blood covered arm. The hooded figure that had saved me had his weapon pointed at Luke just inches from his face.
"Leave." His voice was rather deep and gruff; I was surprised that Luke didn't react to it. I slowly stood up behind the man using the wall to balance myself. This man was giant, I mean, literally giant, Luke was nothing compared to him.
Luke spat at the hooded figured shoes. "Why should I?" He said his voice hoarse from fear. The hooded man stepped towards Luke and retracted his weapon so he could attack.
"I suggest you do Luke." I said softly. Both men turned their heads towards me and then back to each other. Luke then stood up and brushed himself off before he spoke.
"Make no mistake Genevieve, you will be mine, whether you like it or not" He wiped the blood off his cut lip with the sleeve of his shirt and walked out of the alley way. I sighed in relief and the hooded man turned to me.
"Are you alright?" he asked. His voice was soft now, not like before when he was threatening Luke.
"Yes," I answered back. "Thank you for saving me. For a second I thought he was going to kill me." I looked down at my shoes as tears welled up in my eyes.
"Would you like to come with me to my homestead, it's not that far from here?" he asked politely. I looked up at him considering his offer, my heart pounding against my corset. Should I go with him? Should I go with a complete stranger? What about my family? Like they really care for me anyway, they didn't even realise I left this morning, they were too busy drinking to notice. I smiled slightly at him and nodded, I would be safer with him than anyone else. He wasn't like other men, he was different.
"What is your name?" I asked softly.
"Connor, Connor Kenway." He answered. "And yours?"
"Genevieve." I said with a small smile.
