Chapter 27 I believe Prince William will Bring me Justice

The cell was dark and dingy. The back stone wall looked wet and the bed in the comer had only one Ehin sheet on it to use as the blanket Doris searched for the source and found there wilis a tiny window that was much too high for her to even out of, but it had to window and allowed rain to dampen the small room. They shoved Doris inside the cell and threw a prisoner gawn at her feet.

-Change into this.” Was all the man said before the cell door made of bars slammed shut and locked. Doris slid down the wall and hugged her knees to her chest. She’d felt it ther, the dam inside her break as her tears poured out. She tried to silence them, even when she choked. She didn’t want anyone to hear her misery, she pressed her face against the prison gown and tried to muffle every sound. Why was this happening to her? She wasn’t even supposed to be at the party! She was supposed to be resting

Oh, what will they think when they all realize Melody had beaten her just a few days before her being poisoned? They’ll surely think it was her, just 25 Jack had said. Not even Prince Martin or Prince Daniel had a say in her defense out there, they all listened to Jack. What if everyone believed him?

What if they sentenced her to death for this?

It’d felt like days had passed in the cell. The outside was gloomy, though she couldn’t remember if night had passed or if it was all in the same day. It

couldn’t be, it felt like in eternity had gone by since she saw Melody collapse night in front of her. Doris changed into the black prison gown and her own uniform had been collected almost immediately after she slipped it discreetly off her body. It felt as if they erased her title as maid and replaced it entirely with prisoner the second she stepped through the cell door.

A creak echoed through the hallway outside her room. A light knock tapped along the bars of her celbefore boy sild the door open and slipped in silently. Doris quickly stood when she saw it was Da—Prince Daniel.

-Doris!” He moved further in, but a guard came in with him and stood by the wall as if he wen a shadow of the prince. “How’re you doing? I’m so sorry they put you in here I’ve tried convincing them to put you somewhere more… comfortable.”

She’d acted so comfortable with him before as she cleaned his face and teased him

W n’t sure while that should make her feel, but she didn’t feel completely hopeless. At least I wasn’t Prince Jack though perhaps Prince William hated her just as much. A chill ran through her.
