A kiss of a blade resting against my throat wakes me from my sleep. Moonlight pours across the cheek of a servant. My heartbeat pounds against my ribcage, while panic courses through my veins. Everything inside me is begging me to scream, but fear constricts my voice.
I can feel beads of sweat forming across my forehead as Greyson’s ragged voice drowns out my whimpers, “I’m sorry, Princess Calla. It’s me or you.”
Closing my eyes, a lonely tear slips down my cheek. My body trembles beneath the weight of his azure gaze. This can’t be happening. For just yesterday, these same eyes crinkled with laughter when I crossed my own and tilted my head to the side pretending to hang myself at dinner. Listening to Prince Devon’s parents talk about anything made anyone react in this manner.
