Torn - Chapter 6My maid, Elizabeth, is dressing me in my best gown. Father would've ordered it if I had told him. But I haven't. Why should he know before everyone else? Plus, I don't want the embarrassment of Sebastian changing his mind. "Ma'am, would you like the necklace tonight or not?"
"Of course, Elizabeth. That is my favourite necklace and I will not be seen in such a fine dress without it." I don't snap at her ridiculous suggestion of not wearing Chloe's necklace; I try to never raise my voice. But she still looks as if I've scolded her. "Oh, Lizzie. Tonight has to be perfect." Since I arrived in Zanuck Lizzie has been with me. She's my confident and closest friend here. I don't care that she's a servant; that makes her one of the most trustworthy people here. It is in her interest to see my family rise because then she will be the maid o the queen. "Sebastian proposed to me earlier. He's, supposedly, going to announce it tonight, but I doubt him a bit."
Torn - Chapter 5"Ah, Miss Isabella, I've been looking for you." Big surprise. These last few months that I've spent here at the palace have been full of me hiding from Prince Sebastian. Yes, Father and Jacque are pleased with the attention that he is giving me, but they don't push me like I expected. They say that I should merely keep doing whatever I'm doing to attract him. So here I am, hiding in the Library with a worn book entitled 'The Mythical Creatures of the Vortex Island'.
I look up at his big silvery eyes under my thick dark lashes. Already I have been praised more times than I could ever have expected by most of the male courtiers for my careless charm and my golden complexion. They say that I have been chosen by the Sun. The Golden Beauty, I am now called. "Have you, my lord? I can't understand why."
He laughs, unashamed of the shocked glances that the maids and few courtiers in the room give him. "Of course I've been looking for you, B
Torn - Chapter 4Chapter 4
"Here we are, Miss; Zanuck City." It's early morning; I ordered the young servant to keep going throughout the night, saying that I can wait no longer to see my dearest father and brother. In truth I just want to be around distractions.
Why did I scream at him? Thinking about it now, I can see how I wronged him. He was just trying to make it easier; he was telling me the truth. There're so many things that I regret now; not saying goodbye to anyone, yelling at my true love, not taking that one last vital look at the farm.
But, as I keep telling myself, I have to keep going forward. The past cannot be changed. If it is my fate to end up with Finley then the Fates will help me to curve my destiny towards him again. But if not
Well, I don't want to think about that.
I look around me at the beautiful stone buildings lining the streets of the most luxurious city
Egyptian Princess - Part 3Chapter 2
I was picking lilies with Cassie in the small garden underneath our window. We had already picked all our ripe vegetables and we were planning on picking some olives from the olive tree to sell at the market to help me raise money to rebuild my city.
A few weeks after I joined the oracle, she told me that she wished she could live somewhere far away, somewhere that she wouldn't have to hide who she was and where she could do whatever she wanted. That was when I told her about Armana; about the freedom that everyone has, how we're a close knit community and how women and men are equals. We made a promise that day; she would help me rebuild my city and I would let her become an Armanian citizen.
I was remembering the promise, remembering all the kind things that she and Helena had done for me. I smiled at myself, as I often did when I was thinking. "What are you thinking about now? You look so happy." Cassie laughed a little, as she alw
Egyptian Princess - Part 2Chapter 1
I had been taken away from my home, with no one to comfort me. I didn't know where I was, only that I was near the sea. I wanted to go home, but I knew that there was no home left for me now. The hatred for the Persian King grew inside me the a fire. But, I was no common slave; I was the last princess of Armana; I had my dignity, even if I had nothing else.
My two guards and I stopped at the bottom of the temple steps. I walked slowly, with my head hung low, not picking my feet up as a princess should. I could tell from the soldier's expressions that they wanted to slap me, but that would draw attention to us. I wanted to walk like that forever. I was, to be truthful, terrified; I had heard rumours that oracles were not treated kindly.
I stopped dead in my tracks; the beauty of the building could rival that of the temple of Bast in Armana. The sphinxes that led the way to the doors were made out of pure gold. They we
Egyptian Princess - Part 1Prologue
It may have been luck, or it may have been coincidence, but I believe it was the gods. Whatever it was, it has led me to my destiny; a destiny that I would not trade even for immortality.
My cousins and I were walking slowly back to the city, after a long day out looking for new horses for our army. We were in no hurry to get back; none of us wanted to receive the punishment that we knew awaited us for sneaking out of our lessons, even if it was to help our army.
I had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach that something bad was going to happen. "Nahktmen, I feel like we're being watched." I grabbed his arm, looking for something that could comfort me.
"So do I, Alex. Come on, I think that we should probably hurry back. Father will be so pleased with the number that the herd has got to! Maybe the news will spare us a beating." We picked up the pace of our walk and hurried toward the city gates. I didn't w
