The King’s palace was highly organized and had a vast number of soldiers protecting it in and out. The King’s Army was all around the palace. The palace was the special station of the King’s Army which further helped tighten the security of the King. All members of the King’s army were all present at the palace, they were specially trained and rigorously at that. When he had been assigned, he had to keep it away from his family. He never told his brother the truth, but he guessed Mike found out on his own. But Mike never said anything about it.
The magnificent and mighty walls lining the King’s Palace had always given Jared a sense of pride and great confidence of being lucky to be a soldier of the King’s army, now he only felt trapped. Saluting other senior officers as they sat in the King’s Hall of attendance after a special meeting he had congratulated them on a job well done in clearing the town of miscreants… He had left w
“I cannot and will not defend the actions of the late King, he was my father and I know him all too well. I was still a young prince then, Commander. What power did I have in court? I knew my father was a cruel man but there was no way I could stop him or challenge him. He was the king and powerful. At that time all I could think of was that when I because King, I would change everything and make everything right for the people. But where has that gotten me, new atrocities that he did come up every day even when it has been years ago. I should have opposed his actions a lot sooner than this, maybe the Kingdom would be more peaceful” He paused looking at Jared, “It took the King killing someone I love the most in the world for me to begin to fight his decisions. He had her poisoned, My mother…” He said sorrowfully“You still think I am involved in your father’s death. No, I am not, I heard from his Chief adviser at the time. The
If anyone told Mike Stone, a journey could be so grievous and exhausting, he would not have believed. But Mary’s excitement at seeing her husband was really having a negative effect on him at the moment. She was just too hyperactive. The bumpy road did nothing to help his suffering, he only hoped he could deliver her to the palace before his control snapped.He groaned for the hundredth time as Mary questioned him for the hundredth time” Do you really think Jared would be happy to see me? I do not want him to be so cold to me. he rescued me from Ortom then he just disappeared, who does that? He could have stayed with me if he truly loved me. Do you think he cares? He is so hard to read and understand” she whined her beautiful face showing signs of glumnessJared Stone of course Mike thought in irritation. He would make his brother pay for this torture he was putting himself through to save his love. Jared had been so eager to go save
For the happy couple who held each other’s hands, they knew they had gotten their freedom handed out to them on a golden platter due to their reluctance to let each other go. For Princess Catriona she still could not believe she had lost the chance to be with the one man she desired, she gave Mary a disgusted look. She had never liked the daughter of Nicholas Sanders, She always behaved like some princess she wasn’t. The two acted like Princesses in their rights so they could not co-exist in the same place.Princess Catriona smiled slyly at the thought. There was no way Jared Stone can be able to give Mary the Princess life she sought or had been living. Maybe the king would accept her proposal. She knows her brother, he could never say no at the thought of bedding a beautiful woman especially one as alluring as Mary Sanders.She beamed wryly, she moved closer to the King and whispered,” You can use your authority to tear them apart, their marriage is
Leaving his marriage for the women to organize might not be the smartest thing he had ever done. They made sure he performed every wedding ceremony in the history of Western Creek, prolonging the real wedding date. Jared was irritated to no end, the wedding did not irk him but what did irk him was his mother making Mary go back to her parent’s house. He was not allowed to see her till the formal wedding day.Which was driving him crazy, he had wanted to keep her close to him at all times but that was blocked by the women.Finally free from all hassle of their engagement, he escaped to the barn and began grooming the horses. His brother had mocked him saying farming does not look good on an ex-killer, but he would prove them wrong with the amount of wheat he would harvest from the fields. He had begun cultivating the land spread in front of the house. It was a large land since the Stone mansion was on the outskirts of the town. It was easy and trouble-free, he was
seven years Later The quiet atmosphere of the Stone Mansion in former years had gradually transformed to the bubbliest and lively household, Catherine noted as they all worked in the fields. They had all doubted Jared’s capability to be a farmer but he had proven himself over the years. He now supplied half of the town’s wheat feed. He was a meticulous farmer as he was a meticulous killer. No one bothered to steal his animals since the whole town and travellers all knew who Jared Stone was. Catherine stood up from the stool she had been sitting on, her back aching. Fieldwork was really not for her bones “Grandmother is tired” Jonas one of Evangeline’s twins cackled, pointing his small hands at his grandmother. His brother George soon joined in “Grandma won’t get a share of today’s earnings” She smiled, the scoundrels. They took after her son's behaviours, they were mischievous and utterly worrisome. No one had told them
