Ne’er-do-well

Simone had never liked nice people. She also hated losing. Bree was cute and was a natural gamer. Simone would have done more than let the air out of Bree’s tires but she was removed from the gaming group.  Bree’s parents were wise they gave Bree a car that Simone did not recognize. This was her chance and she must act…

***

The arrow had alarmed both women. The princess expected Mi Lady to act hastily to get help but instead she grabbed the princess, covered her mouth with a noxious cloth, dragged her toward the concealed stairwell. It took a moment for the princess to realize she was in danger. The princess could feel herself slipping; she took a deep breath and decided holding it and pretending to faint was better. Grateful that the substance she had been given to subdue the princess acted so quickly, Mi Lady released her hold on Joliette’s mouth knowing she only had a few moments to get away. She was in the stairway; she took a moment to adjust the princess’ weight. Mi lady was strong but Joliette was a grown woman. Mi lady heard a knock and  whispered “up here you fool. She’s not dead – yet.”

****

Ky’s falcon swooped into the room; not finding the princess it returned to Ky.

“What she was just there moments ago.” Ky knew his falcon would not return without being recieved by Joliette. Instinctivley, Ky ran toward the closest door to the palace.

****

Princess Joliette heard heavy footsteps and knew she would be outnumbered. She had to act – now!

***

A servant to the princess entered Joliette’s room;  she finds the arrow and a broken glass. She’s horrified and confused. She starts running around the room looking in corners and screaming “help the princess” “help the princess…”

***

Ky sees a man bolt up the palace stairway. He comes behind him and secures the door.

****

The screaming above distracts Mi Lady.

****

Princess Joliette stomps on Mi Lady’s soft, satin slipper

****

Mi Lady screams

***

Joliette dashes up the stairs calling for help

****

The heavy footed man collides into Mi Lady

***

Joliette collides into her maid

****

The falcon flutters around in the princess’ chamber with a note in his talon.

****

A soldier with a very sharp spear enters the princes’ chamber.

***

Simone has decided she must find the car the Bree drives and disconnect the brakes as she hears laughter in the distance…

***
