I've been chosen, and I don't like it.

“Look down,” I heard someone whisper. I looked at the girl on my left, she didn’t look like she had said anything, but after a second of me staring at her I saw he eye lids open more and she looked at me from the corner of her eye. “Look down.” She whispered again. I looked at her confused but then I realized what she meant when my head was shoved downwards. Out of stupidity and instinct I swung my arm around hit the persons arm away.

“Don’t touch me.” The words slipped out before I realized it was me even saying them. I must have caught them by surprise because ever since I got here I realized that they were so quick and always seemed to know what I was doing, but this time I hit their arm head on and it released my head; but only for a moment because I was thrown to the ground forcing me to land on hands and knees. Adrenalin pulsed through my veins and it allowed me to get up and look around at the man who pushed me, who by no surprise was the guy who had brought me in here. I stepped forward to push him back but it ended up being that they used my own weight and force against me and I was pushed roughly against the wall. Strong hands were holding my arms behind my back and when I mumbled “Bastard,” under my breath they squeezed my arms closer and made me wince. I heard a laugh behind me and I knew it was the person who kidnapped me that had laughed.

“Sorry about that one your majesties, she has a strong spirit that looks like we won’t need here.” I was pulled away from the wall and I was able to see the man glare at me with a grin on his face. He sent his thumb jerking back towards the wall we had gone too, and I was suddenly being escorted back to the wall. “I won’t let that happen again.” He said.

“Wait,” a strong velvet voice say. I was stopped and turned around to see that the younger of the two brothers had stepped forward and was looking at me. I wasn’t sure what expression was on my face, but I knew my breathing was heavy and the adrenalin was still going through me. He looked me over with a gentle gaze and then looked at the older man. “I’ll take her.” He said with a soft edge to his voice. The older man looked at the younger one then back at me with a disgusted annoyed look on his face, and then he looked back at the younger one.

“Son, you don’t have enough tolerance for discipline her like she would need to be. Why don’t you pick one of the others, one that is more obedient?” OBEDIENT!!!!! I screamed in my head, that word sent another rush through me. I began to kick and push against the arms holding me and all of them looked at me.

“I’ll do it father.” Another voice broke in. This voice was strong, but it was far from velvet, it was low and had an edge to it that sent a chill through me. I looked to see it was the older brother looking at me; he was looking at me with a certain hungriness and determination in his eyes. This also sent a chill through me and I stopped fighting the man because now the dungeon seemed like heaven.

“Finn—” the younger brother said, but he was cut off by the older brother Finn.

“Hey, if you don’t want her that’s fine, I’ll take her anyway, but if you want her I’ll train her for you.” They way he said it and the way he was looking at me gave me chills, and I tried to back away from him, hoping that I could get away from him.

The younger brother didn’t answer. Instead he just watched me with a look on his face that was saying he didn’t want me to leave, but he also didn’t want his brother to have me either.  If it was my choice no one would “have” me, but if I had to choose it would be the younger brother. The older brother laughed and looked at me, then back to his brother and shrugged.

“Fine, she’s mine then.” The older brother laughed and I was brought forward but the younger brother yelled.

“No!” Everyone stopped and looked at him, because the tone in his voice had an edge of a growl on it, and was completely menacing. The older brother held up his hands in defensive position.

“Hey, relax Jess, you want her I’ll train her.” He looked back over the line of girls; he smiled and addressed one of the girls. “And I’ll take her, since they seem to be partners in crime.” I looked over at the girls and saw that the girl who had told me to look down. She bowed her head and allowed the one of the guards to take her by her arm and lead her towards me. The father nodded and began to walk away after he said.

“Very well then, just make sure she’s ready for him before you hand her over.” Finn looked at me and nodded with that grin on his face again.

“Sure thing father,” Finn said with a nod and a look at his brother. His brother looked pointedly at him, and then he walked away, following his father. The older brother looked at me and then he walked away with a smile on his face. But before he went completely through the door he looked back at the guards and spoke.

“Send them both to my room, I’ll see to them in a few minutes.” Then I heard the guards mumbled yes and then I was being pushed again. I kept getting pushed all throughout back hallways, which I can only assume would be the servants’ halls. We went up to flight of stairs before we came to a hall way that ended and at the end of the hall was a door. The door opened up into a large, dark room. His room was dark and messy, no messy exactly, but he just had a lot of junk piled all over the place, so yeah I guess it as messy. I got shoved inside and landed on an unmade bed, while the other girl also got shoved inside; even though something tells me that she would have gladly walked in on her own. She landed on the ground with a thud. When the door was slammed some certain quietness settled around us. This was going to be rough, and as the girl remained on the ground I was certain that there was only one way to get through this; with a friend.

The End
