Hey Guys this is my first Fanfic so please be nice! Reviews are ALWAYS wanted!
I do not own anything! The amazing Richelle Mead does!
Great. This is just fantastic. I'm locked here in this dumb cell for 'supposedly' murdering Queen Tatiana while the real killer is running around free! It's been a week since my trial and I'm starting to really hate this place. The only visitor I have been allowed to see is Abe. Lissa came once but I'm pretty sure she used compulsion on the guards to let her in. All I keep thinking about is the letter Ambrose gave me from Queen Tatiana saying that Lissa has a half brother or sister. How the hell am I supposed to find them if I'm stuck in this stupid cell.
It's about 4:00pm vampire time (4:00am for humans) I think, Abe should be here soon as this is the time he usually comes.
I heard the jail door open and the guards talking to someone. Talk about perfect timing.
One of the Guardians came down the hall; I think his name was Jeremy Gordon.
"Guardian Hathaway, you have a visitor."
I don't know why he told me that, Abe comes at this time everyday so I was expecting a visitor, but I didn't want to be rude.
"Thankyou Guardian Gordon." I said as I walked to the door of my cell.
I heard footsteps coming down the hallway but as the person turned the corner to face me, it was not Abe.
"What are you doing here?" I asked.
"I had to see that they weren't hurting you," I knew that sexy Russian accent anywhere. As he looked up and I saw his face, his expression was completely neutral. I could tell he was working hard not to show any emotion, just like I remembered he always did, but I knew him too well.
"As you can see, I'm fine." I was still hurt from what he had said in the chapel and was not in the mood to be nice.
"Why do you care anyway? You made your feelings pretty clear in the chapel." he stiffened when I said that, clearly he did not come to talk about that. He continued with what he did actually come to tell me.
"I know you didn't do It." he said simply.
"Oh really, because I thought I was rightly imprisoned," I said with as much Rose attitude and sarcasm as I could.
"Look, the reason I came here is because I thought I could help find Lissa's half brother or sister, but if my help is not wanted…"
"No, it's wanted! What do you know?" I saw him give me a half smile as if he expected me to say that.
"First of all we need to get you free and cleared of all charges. To help you do that I think we need to get you a proper lawyer or at least someone that is good at convincing people." I began to say something but he cut me off.
"I was thinking you should let Lissa to defend you."
I was actually not that surprised that he had said that because I had actually considered it myself not that long ago.
"Have you asked Lissa if she wants to defend me?" I asked stubbornly, I still didn't want to give in that easily, even if I did agree with him.
"Well it was actually her idea, but if you want confirmation why don't you ask her yourself?" before I could come up with a response I saw another figure come out from around the corner.
"Lissa!" I screamed. I actually surprised myself at how excited I was to see her.
"Hey Rose, How are you? Are they treating you ok?" she seemed genuinely concerned about me and I could hear all the questions she wanted to ask me flash through the bond.
"Yeah I'm fine, but are you sure you want to represent me in court?" I knew her answer before it even left her mouth; I didn't even need the bond to predict what she was going to say.
"Of course I am," she answered, giving me a 'are-you-seriously-asking-me-that' look, "I'm not going to let them lock you away forever… or worse…" she said those last two words with fear in her voice. She wouldn't, couldn't lose me.
The whole time during our conversation Dimitri just lent against the wall watching us with, what looked like, amusement. He didn't interrupt at all but occasionally I caught him looking at me.
"Don't worry Liss, I'm not going anywhere. Besides I have the best damn lawyer in the world defending me."
"By 'best lawyer in the world' I hope you don't mean 'best compulsion user'." She said with a slight smile on her face.
"Maybe…" I replied as we both started laughing. Just as we were beginning to have a normal conversation. Guardian Gordon came in and told Lissa and Dimitri that it was time for them to go.
As I laid down on my prison bed, I had a better feeling about the trail knowing Lissa would be defending me and fell asleep with a smile on my face, for the first time in a long time.
Thanks for reading guys! What did you think? Review please!
