He pushed her away. He felt confused and angry.
“Your Highness, please stop. This is wrong. You’re engaged to the prince of the neighboring kingdom. You can’t do this.”
She looked at him with tears in her eyes. She looked desperate and pleading.
“Leo, please don’t reject me. I don’t love the prince. I only love you. You’re the only one who can make me happy. Please, run away with me. We can start a new life together.”
He shook his head. He felt sorry and scared.
“Your Highness, please be reasonable. We can’t run away. We’ll be hunted down and killed. You’re the princess of this kingdom. You have a duty to your people and your family. You can’t throw everything away for me.”
She grabbed his hand. She looked hopeful and persuasive.
“Leo, please trust me. I have a plan. I have a secret stash of money and jewels. We can take them and escape to a faraway land. No one will find us there. We can live happily ever after.”
He pulled his hand away. He felt annoyed and irritated.
“Your Highness, please stop. This is madness. You’re living in a fantasy world. You don’t know anything about me. You don’t know what I’ve been through. You don’t know what I’ve done.”
She looked at him with curiosity and concern.
“Leo, please tell me. What have you been through? What have you done? I want to know everything about you. I want to share your pain and your joy. I want to be with you no matter what.”
He looked at her with pity and regret.
“Your Highness, please forget me. You don’t want to know everything about me. You don’t want to share my pain and my joy. You don’t want to be with me no matter what.”
He turned around and walked away. She called out his name. He didn’t look back. He didn’t see the prince standing behind the curtains. He didn’t see the rage in his eyes. He didn’t see the dagger in his hand.
