Chapter 1: THE ESCAPE
The night was silent.
There was noone to be seen as far as one’s eyes could reach.
Yet the hooded man looked frantically & secretively around to make sure he wasn’t being followed.
His cloak swished on the road steps as he continued to run ,trying hard not to make sound.

He failed in that endeavor stumbling on a lifted cobble before slamming directly into a hefty back.
A large man glared at the hooded man.
This caused considerable fright as the hooded man was sure he was not there before.

The hooded man was quick to backup to get a good view of his obstruction.
Thinking on the spot, he ran back towards where he was coming from recognising this hefty man as one of those he was running from.

Time was running out. The wind swept past him as he clutched the bundle of swaddled clothes tight against his chest. A gurgle of innocent laughter spewed from the bundle and he stole a glance at the baby wrapped in his arms. His arms tightened over the bundle, well aware of the eyes of the large man behind him. The child must be protected at all cost.

He looked around, trying to find his was between the maddening street signs. He wasn’t sure exactly where he was going but he new that he could not turn back.

He wondered if he made a mistake by running back when his feet became heavy to carry but if it meant getting away from the hefty man and keeping his burning gaze from the baby, it was the best option at that moment.
He heaved a sigh when he no longer heard the sound of heavy boots following him.

But another problem arose.
The baby was getting up.
He could not go into any shops for food or he would be caught.
The best way was to move out of the city & fast.
But how?

Looking around, he recognized his location as one of the places he had scouted earlier that morning.
He knew everything he needed to know about where he now was and one of them was that a train station was two streets from where he was.
Could he make it in time?

he looked at his watch.
It was past 1am but if he hurried,maybe,just maybe , he could reach the station on time to catch the mail train at 1:10.
Decided, he hurried,enveloping the baby closer to him to keep her warm.

The chugging of steam and the chatter of passengers pelted the air. He hurried, his feet lightly touching the ground. The train passage was in sight and the sign said New Hampshire. He meandered through the crowd and his shoulder slammed into a body.

“Oi! Watch it!”

’ Why do I keep bumping into people? ’ he thought quickly retracting his steps to another less crowded area.
He thought everything was going fine until he heard heavy boots behind him trying but failing to be quiet.

He murmured a small apology to the person in front of him before making a dash for the train.
The sound of boots were now nearer,nomore hiding the noise of their footsteps.
He frantically searched for a filled compartment to get in.
He couldnot be caught at any cost.
He had to save the baby!

The baby now getting uncomfortable with all the moving and hitting let out loud whimpers.
All eyes around were on him now, with people giving him curious looks as to why he was hooded and carrying a very wrapped up baby.

He heard the sound of the train whistle & hurried to the first compartment he found.
It was filled with letters & mails.
He ducked under a box full of letters to hide & tried to calm the baby down.
He looked frantically around for some food.
Thankfully for now, the sound of the bustle of people won’t draw much attention to him!

His wallet hung from one arm and the other balanced the baby. It was the only thing he had on him, enough to sustain them for a few days. As the train moved, it was then he was fully aware of the gash on his cheek, and the full stares of the passengers. George bristled on his seat, the fight had been tough, but he held heir now -Hazel, the girl who’d come back to rule again

He thought back to how he had watched some mothers calm their babies when they were getting uncomfortable.
He lifted the baby in the air raising her slightly and bringing he back down.
This was a motion he knew the baby would love.

She giggled, her light brown eyes twinkling in the light. He couldn’t help it, his eyes were downcast. Hazel had been born two months ago when the royalty was at the brink of collapse. The king had married a false blood and kept it secret from the kingdom all in the name of love. Tch! Love! None of his offspring would be entitled to the throne. But, somehow, the king had slept with a true blood maid during his drunk nights and she’d birthed Hazel a true blood, the rightful possessor of the throne.

’ How could a bundle of joy like Hazel be in such trouble of running from the enemies? ’ he wondered.
He had sworn he would keep Hazel from any danger and that was what he was and would keep on doing.

Hazel finally calmed down, sleeping like a princess, she was.
The whistle blowed again indicating the train was moving now!
He closed his eyes ,trying to catch his breathe,thinking of the future!
