With her chin on the woman’s back, Senna could feel Brianna’s heartbeat accelerate. Odd.. had she said something that excited the woman? Or scared her? Maybe she had experience with broken trust. If so, Senna was even more convinced that this was the exact person who could help her with her problems. Deep breath.
“Okay, so I met this man here in these hills. A king, he said he was. King Elliot Daniels. He was really nice to me and said he would teach me to fight. He said he was in love with this woman I know, Eden, and that she was gonna be his queen someday after he rescued her. I like Eden and everything, and he was so nice, so I said I would go with him to The Kingdom…”
She paused, trying to figure out how to tell this next part. It had been so confusing.
“But we ran into this other guy, Wayfarer, who said King Elliot was really bad.. that he tried to, umm…” Senna shifted uncomfortably. ”...that he tried to rape his mom. And he wanted to rape Eden too. And that he threatened Wayfarer’s pups…”
Senna swallowed. “After Wayfarer was gone, King Elliot told me he didn’t hurt his mom. That he .. he was in love with her. And Eden Both.” Senna’s nose wrinkled. “But he’s also having pups with two other females in the Kingdom.” That was not how love was supposed to work, right?
“King Elliot’s been really nice to me, but… Wayfarer was nice to me too. I don’t know what to think about the king, or who to believe…” Senna let the story trail off. That was the gist of it all, anyway. She waited for Brianna’s reaction.
