I keep going between stories, first it was “Masquerade”, then the “Ruby” thing (the hotter story i mentioned the other day) and now I’ve gone back to “The Concubine”, which i started a while ago in one of my many notebooks and which for some reason i was dreaming about last night.
I just cant seem to pick a story to focus on.
“The Concubine” is an interesting one though. It’s modern but set in a world where it’s old fashioned (if you get what i mean).
It’s set in the land of Aluna. There’s a village on the outskirts of the castle, which is run by a rather evil King and his son–who i will point out is nowhere near as evil as his dad.
Anyway, the lead character Tammy has had to grow up quick after the death of her mother five years earlier. She’s had to look after her younger brother and at the same time learn to keep them safe from outside sources. She’s become good at hand to hand combat and has even killed a man in self defense.
One day she wakes up to find her brother is missing. She goes for a walk in the village and learns from a friend that her brother has been arrested for the murder of Nathanial Cross, a friend of the Prince’s and an evil man who gets off on raping and torturing those poorer than him.
There is not a chance in hell that Ellis was the murderer and Tammy sneaks into the Prince’s chambers late one night to tell him as much.
Well, the Prince becomes captivated by the woman who dared to threaten him and seeks her out in the village the next morning and amanages to find her after bribing a particular villager.
It’s safe to say she’s not pleased to see him.
Tammy will spend the month with the man if he’ll set her brother free…before they spend their first night together…
If it doesnt work out i think i might cry 😦
