Her raised voice stopped the music and laughter-even Alkazar froze on the spot. All were witness to her rage.
“How dare you presume I would meet with Darthorn, let alone marry his son? Now you listen to me, and you listen good. You kidnapped me from my home, took me away from everything I hold dear, took my life away without my consent and now you expect me to marry the last person I would ever consider as a husband. I would rather die.”
Lightning struck overhead. Thya turned to the crowd. Her sight fell on Alkazar. She felt betrayed by him.
“I renounce my title. I never asked for any of this and I want naught. I want to go home, and I demand you return me.” Tears flowed down her face. “I cannot aid you. This is not my fight. I am sorry.” Then she fled from the astonished crowd.
For one stunned moment, no one knew what to say or how to react. The murmurs began and the council signalled Omad to go after her. Already Alkazar was on her trail.
Thya ran into the forest, continuing until her strength could take her no further, she collapsed to the ground and wept. The pursuers reached Thya together, Omad was unsure of what to say.
“My… lady,” he stammered.
“Go away,” she cried. “Leave me alone.”
“Princess,” Alkazar gently called.
Thya looked up at him, her eyes red and sore. “You knew,” Thya yelled, “And you did not tell me!”
