Please keep in mind I am still working on my second draft, so this sneak peek is a glimpse into the rough first draft of my novel.
“I should get ready to return home,” Ophelia smiled at Saxon, “I had a wonderful evening, thank you.”
“I’ll walk you to where you need to go,” he offered.
“Okay,” Lia nodded.
They walked to Sarah’s room and stopped to ask a maid to tell Sarah that she was getting ready to leave. When they arrived at Sarah’s door, Saxon lifted Ophelia’s hand and gave it a soft kiss.
“Have a safe journey home,” he smiled, “I hope to see you again soon.”
“Same to you,” she felt her cheeks heat up.
He tucked a loose lock of hair behind her ear, before she turned and entered her cousin’s bedroom. She went to the changing screen and stuffed her clothes into her large purse. She had just closed her bag, when she heard a loud thud. She turned and walked to the door with her purse in a tight grasp. She opened it to see that Saxon had a man pinned against the wall with a hunting knife against the man’s throat.
“What are you doing?” Ophelia’s body stiffened.
Saxon looked at her with a steely glare, but as soon as their eyes met his gaze softened, “Don’t-”
Ophelia looked passed Saxon and the man to see Sarah standing in the hallway. Lia then looked at the man and realized that he was the King, her uncle. However, he didn’t look shocked or scared. He held a cold stare at Saxon, before he turned his blue eyes towards Ophelia. His eyes narrowed on her, which caused a cold shiver to climb up her spine. He looked back at Saxon.
“So you’re here to assassinate me boy?”
“That’s right,” Saxon sneered.
