One day in Shadownia, a beautiful gypsy-girl called Iariel visited. She fell in love with the kingdom's ruler, Harada Silverwulf.
If my people find out I have an illegitimate child with a gypsy, it'll DESTROY my reputation! I'll have to put them in a work camp.
The doctors just told me today!
She was sent to a work camp called Barrachek, where she soon gave birth to a baby boy. She knew she had to escape (the guards wanted to kill him because those were Harada's orders), but Iariel couldn't let that happen.
If I don't escape from here soon, they'll kill my child. I hope Harada will accept us both. I HAVE to get back to him!
She hid herself and her infant son in the body pits, feeding herself on the dead flesh of her people. After three days or so in the pit, she knew it was time to make her escape.
She died of a broken heart, pain and cold just mere minutes from her destination. She was found the next day by Harada, dead outside the kingdom walls, her child crying in the snow.
Harada sold the boy into slavery. TO BE CONTINUED...
I assure you, you have nothing to fear.
I'm giving you this slave for free. If I find out that you've given away his heritage, I will gladly execute you.
