I wrote this a while ago and the few people who read it told me they really liked the concept. It's a really twisted concept, so I hope you all like it. This was my first official fanfic, so I've edited it and re-published it for a new audience. Please send feedback, constructive criticism is very much appreciated
Chapter 1: The Kidnapping
"I'm sorry I can't come this time, Snow, I've been postponing these meetings for weeks. My parents think I'm spending too much time with you."
Snow White laughed at her husband and kissed him on the cheek. "That's alright, I have Grumpy to take me to the cottage."
"That makes me feel muchbetter." the prince said sarcastically.
"Hmph." Grumpy mumbled.
"I was only joking."
"Sure you were."
They bid a last goodbye and Snow White and Grumpy disappeared into the forest while the prince turned to walk back towards his castle. Only minutes later, before he stepped foot inside, he heard a voice in the distance shouting "Help." He looked all around, but didn't see anyone, so he started to follow what he heard. It lead him into the forest, and as he got closer, it sounded more and more like Snow White's voice. It echoed unnaturally through the forest, it was all around him now and he didn't know where to go.
"Snow? Snow White!"
He yelled her name as he watched the darkness crowd in on him. He wasn't afraid, only curious. It was like no darkness he'd ever seen; it must have been some sort of black magic chasing him. He realized it was a trap once he could no longer feel his body. He could feel himself leaving the only world he knew. He was entering not a new world, but another dimension.
Aurora and Phillip were just about to go on a walk through the woods when a messenger came running towards them.
"Prince Phillip! Your father has urgently requested you to meet him!"
"Urgently? Is it really that important?"
"Yes, your Highness, very important."
Phillip whispered to Aurora, "He probably doesn't even know what my father wants me for." He turned to the messenger. "I'll be there as soon as I can." He turned back to his wife. "Wait for me?"
"Yes, I'll wait." Aurora sighed as she let him kiss her hand. She watched him mount his horse and he soon disappeared beyond the castle gates.
The messenger stood frozenly still for a moment, and Aurora noticed his eyes turn from black to a pale blue. He suddenly acted as if he didn't know where he was.
"Excuse me, princess, how long have I been standing here?"
"Aurora looked at him questionably. "Only a few minutes." She answered.
The messenger looked puzzled, but tried to think nothing of it. He bowed to his princess and walked back to his post.
Phillip raced out of his castle gates and towards his father's, which wasn't all that far away. His father was never "urgent", so he didn't know whether it was actually serious or if his father was suffering from loneliness or something. Whatever it was, it was shortening the time he had to spend with Aurora, and he had enough of that with his regular royal duties.
They were almost there now, Samson wasn't the least bit tired, which was why Phillip was completely off guard when Samson tripped and fell. Phillip went flying off of his horse and rammed into a tree. He heard Samson's cry and opened his eyes to see vines wrapped around his horse's ankles, dragging him into the forest. Although he was winded, Phillip sprung up to his feet and ran into the forest. To his surprise, he felt a vine grip his ankle and he fell flat on his face. Vines sprung out at his from all directions, eventually covering his entire body. He could only see darkness as the vines pulled him away.
Eric sat by himself on the beach, staring into the rising sun. His father had recently died on his last trip out at sea, and his and Ariel's coronation was that evening. Everything was happening so fast, it was almost too much to handle. He was always a laid back kind of guy, but now that he was becoming King, he didn't know how to act or what to say.
Eric spun around, surprised to hear Ariel's voice.
Ariel sat next to him.
"Dad would've loved to see our coronation." Eric said.
"Yeah. Is that what you're thinking about?" Ariel asked.
"Partly. You're going to be a marvelous queen, I know it. It's just...I don't know about me."
"You'll do fine, Eric."
"I know I'll do fine, but I want to do better than fine! I want to be as good a king as my father was."
At that moment, both Ariel and Eric felt water at their feet. The tide was rolling in early. Way early. They both grew suspicious, but neither of them had any idea of what was really happening. Without a warning sign, a giant black wave plunged over Eric, pulling him into the ocean. Ariel grabbed his hand and was too pulled into the vast ocean. They were used to these kinds of strange happenings, but still, they were both caught way off guard at a new threat.
Eric soon passed out, but somehow able to breathe underwater, and let go of Ariel's hand. The speed of the black water dragging Eric deeper into the ocean, separating them and forcing Ariel to swim to the surface and leave with her the mystery of what happened to her soon-to-be-king.
This is one of my shorter chapters, and yes, all of the princesses are involved, even some that don't seem to fit in the official franchise, but you'll find that out if you keep reading
