Rin opened her eyes to what seemed like a void of darkness. She looked to her left and what she saw, she couldn't believe it. It was her parents, standing
completely still about ten feet away from her. Rin put her hands on her mouth and started running towards her mother and father, after a few seconds, Rin realized she wasn't getting any closer, she was actually drifting farther away from them. She reached her hands toward her parents, 'but it isn't going to make them come back...' she thought, as she let her arms fall back to her sides. Then she heard faint whispering behind her, slowly creeping closer, and closer, turning into loud chanting. Rin looked behind her to see, men and women, cities folk holding pitchforks and torches.
"Penitence for your crimes, penitence for your life!!" "Did you hear? She killed the king and queen in cold blood!!" "Murderer!!!" Rin heard their voices start to overlap as they got closer, she could almost feel the heat of the burning torches, falling to her knees in tears she punched the invisible floor of the void as hard as she could.
"I DIDN'T KILL THEM! THEY WERE ASSASSINATED! WHY CAN'T YOU SEE THAT?!" Rin cried out, "Actually, it's all my fault!! I should've been able to save them! They died because of me!! YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO KILL ME NOW!! JUST GET IT OVER WITH!!!" Rin threw her arms out, tears running down her cheeks, supposedly surrendering to the hoard of people, now surrounding her. She realized as she looked closer at the peoples faces, they weren't there, exept, they were but she couldn't exactly make them out...
"GAAAH!!!" Rin flew off her pillow, hugging her stuffed cat, Lulu so tight that the stuffing has all moved to the opposite side.
"It... Was all a dream?" Rin asked herself as a drop of sweat rolled down her forehead that's already sore from dried up tears.
Her bedroom door swung open,
"YOU'RE HIGHNESS! ARE YOU ALRIGHT?!" A guard stood at the doorway. Rin immediately put herself in a sophisticated position,
"I was just having a nightmare, nothing to be worried about."
"Oh, I apologize for the misunderstanding, you're highness." The guard dropped to his knees before Rin.
"All is forgiven, you are dismissed." Rin said bluntly as she motioned the guard out of her room. Just as the door closed, Rin laid back on her pillow re-thinking what she saw in her dream. Not like there was anything left to think about, she's been having that nightmare ever since her parents died that night. Except, something was different this time, the riot seemed to hesitate on killing her. 'I guess Len being here really is helping be put my parents death in the past.'
Rin thought, smiling as she got up off her big, queen size bed. Walking down the hall Rin greeted Teto.
"Wait... when did you start working up here?" Rin asked confused.
"You gave me a promotion to the 'elite' maid title. Do you not remember, you're highness?" Teto said holding a stack of Rin's identical nightgowns.
"Oh, I did do that... Well, i'm glad to see you working up here! And, you can also call me by my first name now. It's a feature of being, 'elite'." Rin winked. Teto smiled,
"He he, you've been happier than usual lately, did something happen?"
"Oh, nothing much." Rin said walking down the hall towards the queens bathroom.
"Where might you be going in you're nightgown, Rin?" Teto turned toward her.
"I'm going to go take a bath..."
"Well then, take this," Teto handed Rin a bubbly looking, pale pink dress with a ribbon attached to it, " I just washed it, so it's nice and fresh." Teto
smiled at Rin.
"Thank you, this is my favorite dress..." The dress was made of soft cotton and is by far the least itchy thing in Rin's wardrobe.
"I will see you later!!" Rin waved Teto goodbye as she closed the door to the ginormous bathroom, fit for a queen.
'Ahhh... I don't take baths often enough...' Rin thought as she laid back in the bathtub. knock, knock, knock. Rin heard someone knocking on the bathroom door twenty feet away.
"What is it? What do you need?" She sat up in the bathtub.
"Um, is that you, Rin? Teto said you were in here..." Rin heard len's muffled voice.
"Yes, I'll be out in a minute..." She replied, getting out of the bathtub.
Len sits down on the bench in front of the bathroom door. A few minutes passed by and Len got up to knock on the door again.
"AAAAAAAAHHH!!!!!" "No, NO!! GET AWAY FROM ME!! NOOOOO!!!" Rin screamed from the other side of the door while guards rushed to the bathroom to see what was going on.
By the time Len and the guards succeeded in kicking the door down, Rin was gone, the only signs left behind were a ripped piece of black leather on a gold chair and the wind rustling through the curtains on the big open window. Len couldn't believe it, Rin had been kidnapped.
