The world was upside down... Or at least their world. The lady knight, Akira, let out a deep sigh as she glanced to the sleeping form of her princess. Their kingdom had been forcefully claimed, taken by a man that she had never before seen. She hadn’t even taken much time to memorize his features, truthfully... Her duty was to escort the princess away to safety, before she too was claimed by the bloodshed. Akira had no doubt that the king and queen were dead... That many of her fellow knights also lay slain. Even her her own father. The thought tore at her heart. She would swallow hard, closing her eyes as she leaned against the wall in the dark room of the inn. They had fled... All the way to the neighboring kingdom of Talnek. Akira was at a loss at the moment, and still feeling weakened from their flight away from it all. She had used quite a bit of magic to conceal their presence, casting a sort of temporary invisibility over them until they finally got away. Their clothing now was nothing of the sort of thing they would usually wear... They looked so different from themselves... Akira had taken the clothes of one of the maids to disguise themselves in. Her own outfit was made of white and sky blue. Silver lined it, with small false silver coins in a decorate loop around it. The same was true for the blue around the top of her neck, and the large blue bow that she wore in medium brown hair. Her eyes were more a rich brown, holding almost an amber-like hue to them She looked younger, especially with her long side bangs tied up with two small hair ties. The rest fell down low, tied off at the end so it wasn’t too lose. She had been with the princess her whole life... And she was going to be turning twenty-four when winter hit. It was usually a wonderful time a year, a time of celebration. Or at least it would have been. But now... What were they going to do now? Akira would drift off with that thought. They had a bit more money... But... Eventually they would run out... Morning found her still slumped against the wall, eyes slowly opening to look around at what was around her. The sun had barely risen over the horizon, casting light into the room. The knight would sigh deeply, moving away from the wall to stretch her stiff muscles. How she missed her amour ... Her blade... All had been abandoned in their hurry to leave. Gaze would shift over to the princess, wondering how she was feeling... Their journey had been so hectic... Mainly in silence until they arrived here. She could only hope that she was alright.
