Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments Arianette opened the door to her chambers, stepping inside and closing the doors, exhaling as she leaned against them. The room was dark, except for a pale sliver of moonlight illuminating a patch of the floor. She stepped towards the window, looking out at the castle grounds, trying to collect her thoughts. As she stood there, she had the sense that she wasn't the only one in the room. She turned around quickly, finding herself face to face with Caspian.
"M-my lord, you startled me," She said, trying to keep her composure, "What is it that brings you here so late at night?"
"Don't pretend like you don't know, Arianette," Caspian replied, his voice cold, "I had someone follow you after I noticed you becoming more and more absent. They happened to overhear a conversation between you and a certain foreign prince in the library just moments ago. How could you betray me like this?"
"P-please, Caspian," Arianette said, her heart pounding in her chest, "You don't understand."
"Then explain it to me!" Caspian retorted, anger rising in his voice. "You're carrying my child, the future heir to the French throne," He continued, his voice softening slightly as he placed his hands gently on her stomach, "Why would you want to leave?" Arianette recoiled slightly at his touch, causing Caspian to frown. "What can he give to you that I can't?" He asked, "I can make you a queen. He can't do that for you. He's a womanizer, Arianette. He'll abandon you in an instant. I would never do that to you." He placed a hand on her cheek before bringing his lips to hers in a kiss.

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Nathaniel was walking back to his room when he heard Caspian shouting. His heart plummeted and his eyes widened. He ran to Arianette's room and saw Caspian kissing her. Nathaniel's face turned red, his knuckles white as he clenched his fists. Something in him snapped.

Nathaniel ran over and pulled Caspian off Arianette and shoved him, stepping in front of her protectively. "Don't come near her, Caspian. Don't you dare touch her after what you've done. She doesn't love you and you forced her into your bed. She carries the child of a man she does not love but couldn't say no to because of his stupid court rules. You've caused her enough hurt. You won't come near her or her child." He growled, glaring at Caspian with such fire and fury, he looked as if he could kill his best friend in that single moment.


message 4: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments "She was quite willing to join me, I assure you," Caspian said, "After all, she came here to marry me, not someone who's second in line to the throne." He laughed as he saw Arianette's face flush from where she stood behind Nathaniel. "She's quite manipulative, isn't she?" He said, "I know that she doesn't love me in the way that she may feel about you, but she certainly loves the power that I could offer her." He shifted his gaze to Arianette. "Don't fool yourself, darling," He said, "You know that you're better off with me."


message 5: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Nathaniel tensed and glared daggers at Caspian. He couldn't deny, it stung when he said Arianette was happy to sleep with him. But he knew it wasn't true. "She wouldn't risk her life if she didn't love me, Caspian." He growled. "You're the manipulative one here. You don't know a thing about who she really. You never bothered to try. You're just looking for a wife who's pretty and can survive court. You don't care if she loves you or not. I doubt you even love her. Arianette is coming back with me to England and unless you want to loose and ally, you won't stop us."


message 6: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments "I trust that she would do much more than just survive court. She would flourish here. But now it isn't just about Arianette," Caspian replied, "She's carrying my child. You can't deny that. In taking her away from French Court, you are kidnapping one of my heirs. Even your family in England would understand my taking action against you." Arianette grew cold as she listened to his words. It was true that in traveling to England, she would essentially be kidnapping a french prince and implicating Nathaniel along with her.


message 7: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments "You have no way to prove it's yours. I plan on claiming the child as mine after we've married so as to not damage her reputation or the child's. I'll claim it before we're married. I don't care. It would be my word against yours, Caspian." Nathaniel said firmly, taking Arianette's hand gently. "You won't take the woman I love from me."


message 8: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments "Unfortunately for you, my friend, we are in my court. Which means that my word is all that matters," Caspian said, "Besides, if you intend to claim the child as yours, that would mean that Arianette had been seeing you while she was a member of my court, a crime punishable by death." He met Arianette's wide eyes, a smirk forming on his lips. "If I can't have you, I'm afraid no one can," He said, "It would be such a waste to see such a beautiful women die over a delusion of love."


message 9: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Nathaniel tensed and clenched his jaw, he felt like he was suffocating. "Go to hell, you bastard." Nathaniel hissed in his furry. "You're really so heartless as to not give her a chance with someone she loves and would actually be happy with? I thought we were friends, Caspian. But now I see you're just as evil and psychotic as your brother."


message 10: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments "Don't speak of my brother!" Caspian yelled, grabbing Nathaniel by the collar of his shirt. Arianette could see a vein popping on his forehead. She looked around for something that she could use against him, but it was useless unless she intended to smother him with on of her pillows.


message 11: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Nathaniel's eyes widened and he growled, grabbing Caspian's wrists and pushing him off him. "Don't you dare touch me." He snapped. He glared but frowned a bit and looked at Arianette. "Fine. I'll leave for England tomorrow.... as long as you swear not to harm her. Ever."


message 12: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments A victorious smirk formed on Caspian's lips as Nathaniel agreed to leave. At the same time, Arianette's mouth opened in shock. "I'm glad to see that you've come to your senses. I would never harm her," He replied, "After all, she's carrying my child."


message 13: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Nathaniel frowned a bit. "Could you be kind enough to give us a moment to say goodbye?" He asked through clenched teeth. He couldn't believe he was loosing the only woman he'd ever and would ever love to his former best friend. And she wouldn't even be happy.


message 14: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments Caspian frowned at his request. "No more than five minutes," He said finally, stepping outside of the room to give them some privacy, although not much as he left the door slightly ajar. With Caspian gone, Arianette felt tears fall from her eyes, falling to the ground in crystal-like droplets as they were illuminated by the moon.


message 15: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Nathaniel hugged her close and rubbed her back gently. "I love you so much. I'll never stop loving you. But I have to do what's best for you and the baby. And if that's means you staying with.... Caspian, then so be it. I can't stand to watch you die because of me." He said softly, his own tears springing to his eyes and rolling down his cheeks.


message 16: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments Arianette cried into his chest, unable to accept that these were to be their last moments together. "I love you, too," She said, pulling herself together for long enough to speak, "I will always love you. And one day, I trust that we will meet again, even if that day happens to be our last." She didn't want him to remember her crying, so she tried her best to stop. "Not even time itself can keep us apart," She managed with a small smile before kissing him.


message 17: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Nathaniel kissed her back passionately, wanting to savor every second he had left with her and burn everything about her permanently into his memory. Her smile, her laugh, her kiss, her touch, her frown, her smirk, everything. He pulled away only when he had to for air and rest his forehead against hers, his own tears falling onto her cheeks and mixing with hers. "I'll love you for eternity, Arianette." He whispered softly. He wished they could just run now, escape before Caspian came back and be safe from him forever.


message 18: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments Caspian coughed from where he stood at the door, signifying that they should wrap things up. "Please, try to find happiness," Arianette said, her words hurried, "I will try my best to find it, as well. Know that I will never forget the moments that we've shared together." She wouldn't be able to live with herself if he couldn't do so.


message 19: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Nathaniel frowned, knowing he would never be able to be happy after loosing her, but he couldn't let her know that. He had to make this easy on her. He nodded softly and then kissed her gently one last time, holding her close.


message 20: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments Arianette wanted to remember what it felt like to kiss him, what it felt like to be in his arms. "I hate to break up such a...tender moment," Caspian said, his voice dripping with sarcasm, "But it's time that you left France, Nathaniel." Beside him stood two guards, ready to escort Nathaniel from the castle.


message 21: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Nathaniel sighed softly and pulled away a bit, holding her hand as he walked away till he finally could not hold on anymore, he was too far away. He looked at her sadly as the Guards escorted him out, his stuff already prepared and packed into a carriage.


message 22: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments ((ligit cried while writing this whole thing DX and now I'm not sure how to continue since Caspian is obviously gonna pick Arianette and then Nathaniel won't be there anymore))


message 23: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments Once Arianette's hand left Nathaniel's, she stood frozen for a moment, unable to accept what was happening. Once she came back to her senses, she ran out of the room, only to be caught by a guard, her sobs echoing throughout the halls of the castle.

((Ah, sorry! I have a tendency to make things tragic. If you want to keep roleplaying between the two of them, you could always transfer Nathaniel over to the kingdoms roleplay. Or else we could roleplay between Anastasia and Arianette?))


message 24: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Anastaisa was walking through the halls and frowned when she heard sobs. She ran over and saw a guard holding back Arianette who was sobbing. "Release her!" She snapped, gently taking Arianette from her and gently hugging her, trying to comfort her. While she didn't like Arianette, she couldn't just watch her be miserable and be hurting.


message 25: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments Arianette continued to sob until she no longer could, unaware of who was comforting her. She was quite for a moment, numb from the pain. She wiped away her tears, finally looking to see who it was that had been hugging her. She was taken aback to find that it was Anastasia, the very girl that she had said wouldn't make it here at court. "Why are you helping me?" She asked, knowing that not many of the other women here liked her.


message 26: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Anastasia sighed softly. "Because you're still a person. And no one should be so upset and not be comforted. Come on, you can come with me to my room and have a cup of tea to calm your nerves." She said softly, getting the feeling Arianette didn't want to be in her room at the moment.


message 27: by Spades (new)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments "Fine," Arianette said, not liking to accept help from others. She knew that she needed it, though. Now that Nathaniel was gone, she didn't have anyone here that she could trust. God, did it hurt to realize that.


message 28: by ~Fangirl~ (new)

~Fangirl~ (fangirl1231) | 260 comments Anastasia frowned softly and gently helped Arianette to her room, glancing back and frowning when she saw Caspian. Could he really be the cause of this? He'd seemed so nice.... what darker side of him had the other girls not seen?

(switch threads?)

Spades (thequeenofspades) | 175 comments ((Yeah. I'll post there ^.^))
