" Sebastian Tomas Herric come forward". The old man had called from his chambers and Bash had come forward as requested. " Sir". Sebastian bowed his head briefly before looking towards Talon the ex head knight of the house and his father. " It seems that the king and queen have a new task at hand that requires your hmmm.. expertise. Rumors have spread quickly that there is word for the young lady's head. We do not know exactly who wants her dead but whoever it wants to jeopardize not only the house but the kingdom as well. Sebastian eyed his father nodding his head. " I completely understand the situation and I will put my life on the line to protect the next queen of this kingdom. Talon seemed pleased by the response and walked over placing his hand on Sebastian's shoulder. " I couldn't have asked for a better son". Bash's lips quirked up into a half smile before he dismissed himself and left his father's chambers. There was guards everywhere and he felt their prying eyes on him. Word must of got out that he would be the lady's head guard to keep her safe. Now he had to view everyone as a possible assassin. The first attempt on her life was weak to test the waters. Someone had tried to shoot an arrow at her during the banquet but they missed and killed a innocent commoner. Sebastian entered the main hall adjusting his shirt as he stood next to his dear friend Patrick. " Any news on the lady Bash?". " Aye, they said that she's a little shaken up by the who assassination attempt and I am to watch over her until they find this person.". " Hmm well fine job the king gave you, you are one of the best and he trusts you with her life. Such a fine honor". Sebastian nodded his head in agreement. Ever since he was a boy the king had his eye on him, giving him extra sparring lessons and let him roam around the castle with his daughter. " My friend I shall speak to you soon, I must meet with the lady". He headed down the hall and the up the stairs to the young lady's room where her servants were. He greeted them before knocking on her door. " M'lady it is me Sebastian".
