{My master and I}

Episode Thirty one.
¤ Erica ¤
King Marion as-sembled everyone, including Annabelle to the throne room in anger. I stood at the corner, watching the drama about to unfold. King Marion was not happy at all, his face spoke nothing but rage and everyone was afraid at what his next action would be.
“Annabelle, I heard you are planning treason” he stated plainly and [email protected] filled the room. Annabelle stood shocked, she probably wasn’t expecting the king to know about her plans. I sm-irked at her reaction.
“Your majesty” she fell on her knees immediately.
“I am your humble servant, your wife my lord! Why would I plan such against you?” she asked, faking tears.
“I don’t know, you tell me. Infact tell this entire court the reason why you want to kill me!” king Marion demanded as she continued to cry.
“My lord, spare me plea-se, don’t believe the lies you hear from my enemies. I would never commit such atrocity. Besides, where is the evidence that I am planning all this?” she asked and the king looked at me.
This is one vital thing I forgot, you must have evidence before prosecuting anyone and there is no evidence. So what do I do now? Does this mean that Annabelle will go scot free?
“There is no evidence my lord you see? So how can you claim that I want to kill you?” she asked again and I bit my l!pin spite. I can’t believe this witch is about to get away with this.
After long minutes of silence, king Marion spoke again.
“This isn’t over, now get out of my sight. And pray that this all turns out to be false, else, you’re done” he said sternly to Annabelle who got up and started leaving the throne room. She saw me and grinned.
“I know you’re the one who provided the king with this information, just wait and see what I do next” she grinned and went upstairs. I [email protected] in fear, she is still planning to kill the king.
Nob©dy will believe me without evidence, but I can’t let that evil woman have her way, I must protect my king at all costs. At that moment, all I could think of was the safety of my king, I had no choice than to make a very big sacrifice… For the man I have come to love.
“My lord!” I ran and fell at his feet. He picked me up lovingly.
“Erica, I’m not calling you a liar but I can’t prosecute Annabelle without…” he tried to explain but I cut him off.
“plea-se my lord..” I knelt down again.
“I renounce my freedom” I announced much to the amazement of everyone in the room. There was another long silence, except for my sobs.
“Do you know the implication of what you just said? Do you know what it means to renounce your freedom?” king Marion asked.
“Yes, I know. I want to become your slave again, I want to serve you my lord…” I said with tears pouring out from my eyes. This is the only way that I can be sure of my stay here. Annabelle won’t be able to hurt the king if I’m around him.
“Erica, I don’t want you to do this, plea-se” the king said, lifting me from the floor once again.
“It’s my choice to serve my king, why won’t you let me?” I asked and he sighed.
“Fine, as you wish. But on one condition”
“Anything my lord”
“You’ll be here but not as a slave… As my personal maid” he stated and I smiled, wiping my tears. He just made my job so much easier.
“I accept, my lord” I bowed.

I was going home to get my stuff and resume work at the palace, but I don’t know how to break this news to my mother. I took such a big decision without her knowledge and she will be really hurt. I was at the palace gates when Annabelle showed up from nowhere with her maids.
“So you think that you can st©p me from achieving my aim by coming back to this castle?” she asked, fuming.
“I believe so” I replied with an eyeroll.
“Nob©dy may believe me Annabelle, but I will never let you get away with this.. The king will not die, especially not in your hands” I said boldly and she chuckled.
“Maybe you just don’t know how dangerous I can be dear Erica. You’re going home now aren’t you? You better hurry back before anything happens to your king” she grinned dangerously.
“What do you mean by that? Where is the king?” I asked, getting worried because of her statement.
“Aww, look how worried you are about him, so sweet.. But, you can’t be in two places at once can you? Let’s see how you save him from me” she said and walked into the castle. I didn’t know whether to rush to the king’s room or continue my journey home.
This Annabelle is unpredictable and wicked. Could she have done something to the king? Or is she just pla-ying mind games with me?

“So you want to leave me all alone again? You want to go back to become a slave? What has gotten into you Erica?” my mother questioned after I told her everything that happened in the castle. She was definitely not happy with the news and I un-derstand why. The poor woman has to stay here all alone again.
“Mom, I will be coming to visit you often, you won’t be alone. I won’t be staying there as a slave but as the king’s maid” I informed, hanging my bag on my shoulder.
“I can see that you’ve alre-ady made up your mind and there’s nothing I can do.. Just go” she said painfully and sat on the chair, sobbing. I sat next to her and hvgged her ti-ght.
“I’ll be back mom, don’t worry. I have to fight this fight and win it” I said and sighed.
“Go my child. Take care of my grandchild” she k!$$£d my forehead and hvgged me before finally esc-rting me out of the house.
I hurriedly left for the castle, hoping that nothing had happened to the king in my abs£nce. I was relieved when I got there and met him healthy and strong.
“You’re here. I’ve been waiting for you” he welcomed me into his room and closed the door.
“Thank you my lord” I bowed. He sat on his be-d and scanned me from head to toe, then huffed.
“Say Erica.. You seem to have added weight in the h!parea” he said and my eyes wi-de-ned. My pregnancy is alre-ady beginning to show, very soon it will be noticeable.
“Um.. It’s probably nothing” I said, trying to avert his mind from that but he was insistent.
“If I didn’t know better, I’d say you’re pregnant” he grinned and I blu-shed stupidly.
“Pregnant? No no, that’s not possible” I chuckled nervously. He pu-ll-ed me closer and made me sit on his [email protected]
“I think I’m going to enjoy having you around my love.. You’re now in charge of everything I eat, drink, wear and also my room” he said and I smiled, putting my arms around his n£¢k and staring into his dreamy eyes.
“I won’t let you down” I as-sured and he hvgged me. I promised him then and there in my heart that I would protect him at all costs.
“I love you Erica” he whispered.
“I love you too my king” I answered.

A knock [email protected]£ on the king’s door and we both scrambled for our clothes which was hilarious. I never planned to [email protected] him but once he t©uçhed me, I couldn’t st©p myself. His t©uçh works like magic on me.
“Here!” I said in a soft tone, throwing him his un-der garments. We finished dressing and I went to open the door. Nadine was standing there with a tray of food in her hands. She looked at both of us as smiled while I scratched my head stupidly.
“Here is your food my king. Now I’ll excuse you both to continue enjoying yourselves” she giggled handing me the tray.
“Nothing is going on” I said.
She simply shook her head and left.
“Look what you did, now she knows we sle-pt together” I said to king Marion and he pouted, which was something I had never seen him do before. It was adorable.
“How is it my fault huh? You could have said no” he said.
“How could I say no to the king? And risk having my head chopped off” I said jokingly, dropping the tray of food on his desk. He held my [email protected]!st from behind and k!$$£d my n£¢k softly.
“I can’t get enough of you Erica” he said, I could tell he was hor-nyagain because the ha-rd ness of his man-hood pressed against my bu-tt.
“Get off me you!” I pushed him off gently.
“You’re never satisfied. I’m your maid, not your wife” I reminded and he gro-an ed.
“Come and eat” I said and opened the covered food for him. I saw a small container of medicine on the tray and picked it up.
“What are you taking medicines for?” I asked.
“Oh, it’s for my blood pressure. I take it once a day” he replied.
“Then hurry up and eat so that you can take your drugs” I urged and he started eating while I went to clean up.
¤ Queen Annabelle ¤
“Did you succeed?” I asked my handmaid who just walked into my room. She raised the container to my face and I [email protected]£d it, sm-irking.
“My queen, I switched the containers successfully” she informed. I dismissed her immediately and [email protected] on my be-d in satisfaction.
Erica thinks that she will st©p me? Ha! In her dreams. I will slowly squee-ze life out of king Marion right un-der her nose. He will keep on taking the medicines I prepared until the slowly kill him internally.
Then when he is dead, I will be the only queen, the only ruler of Axel city!
I threw the original medicines into the fireplace and watched them burn to ashes. I can’t wait for the fake drugs to take effect, this will be fun.
How fast do you think Erica will figure this out?
And what happens when Annabelle discovers Erica’s pregnancy???
Let’s find out!
