continued from part one…..

Since i don’t want to turn this into a really long story, I’ll skip ahead a year or two.

The two started seeing each other frequently after that. About a year later Prince Gavin asked Natalie to marry him, she said yes. There was a grand wedding, filled with commoners and royalty all around. The day after the wedding, Natalie decided to explore the enormous castle which was now her home. She had some how managed  to find her way to the dungeon, by getting lost in the incredibly long hallways. When she entered the dark musky room, her common sense told her to turn around, to go back , but her curiosity over powered her. The room was filled with mold, spiders, and rats, and it reeked of death. When she walked over to the other side of the room, the door suddenly slammed shut, and would not open again. She screamed for help, but no body came to her aid.

The moon was up, bright, and full by the time a guard had found her.The prince became worried when she hadn’t returned after many hours, and sent a search party to look for her. When they entered, the prince stepped back in horror, shock, and being mystified. She looked beautiful, yet monstrous. In a panic, the guards attacked, forcing Natalie to run around them down the long corridors. When they finally caught her, she was cornered on a balcony at the very top of the castle, towering over the kingdom. They were shoving pointy spears and swords that glimmered in the moon light. Her only choices were to be taken away to who knows where, or to jump. She chose to jump, and with her long leathery wings took flight into the night, never to be seen again.

And she knew that she would forever and always be misunderstood.
