Kiku the Maid
â€œVe~ Itâ€™s-a so nice in here!â€
â€œWhy is it like this?â€
â€œAh! Over there, on the bed!â€
â€œDa~ Thatâ€™s my bed~â€
The 7 men surrounded the sleeping man, wondering why he was there. They spoke to each other of what he may be. Thief or murderer, innocent or runaway? None of them knew. The smallest of them gave a cheer at an idea.
â€œVe! Maybe we should wake him!â€
â€œHow? Heâ€™s deeply sleeping, dude!â€ the loudest protested.
â€œHow about we hit him with my pickaxe, da~?â€ the scariest smiled childly.
â€œW-we canâ€™t d-do that!â€ the quietest squeaked.
â€œWe could use magic!â€ the solitary man tried.
â€œVe must be logical!â€ the gruffest snapped.
â€œHow about a kiss from a princess? Itâ€™ll wake him~â€ the lustful man smiled.
â€œOh! That could work!â€ the others chimed. â€œBut where do we get a Princess?!â€
â€œHow about us instead?â€ the smallest asked. â€œWeâ€™re as good as a Princess or Prince!â€
Without any (or much) complaining, they puckered up their best kiss & leaned forward to give a kiss to the sleeping man, but he had woken & sat up. The lot of them blushed red at how awkward it had become.
â€œN-nani?!â€ the Prince quivered. â€œWho are you?!â€
â€œWe are--â€ and they spoke their names in unison, making it very confusing.
The Prince put up a hand. â€œPrease, one at a time!â€
â€œFeliciano! Ludwig. ALFRED!! Matthew. Francis~ Arthur. Ivan~â€
The men around him were quite surprised by a Prince in their house & asked many questions (as would anyone if you were in that situation!), getting simple answers from him. The Prince smiled after a while, knowing the 7 men around him meant no harm & were very funny. But, the smile wore off as the Prince worked up some courage to ask them something important.
â€œI would rike to stayâ€¦â€ Kiku finally spoke. â€œâ€¦If it is not a bother.â€
The men looked at each other before Ludwig spoke: â€œYou may, but you must clean & cook for us.â€
Kiku nodded & smiled once more. The men cheered in joy as Kiku began to make them dinner.
~~~ At the Palace ~~~
Yao paced his room, fear lining his face. He had many things on his mind, many things he was frightened of. Did he have to kill his son? Did he die horribly or peacefully? What if someone kidnapped him? The mirror watched the Emperor, before finally speaking up.
â€œYour majestic grace?â€
â€œAIYAHH!!â€ the Emperor jumped at the sudden noise.
â€œMy deepest apology.â€
â€œYou will be unhappy.â€
At that moment, the huntsman burst through the doors & knelt before the Emperor. He presented Yao with a carved wooden box containing the heart of the Prince. Yao quickly opened the box, fearful & amused, but was quick to realise it was but a deer heart.
He glared at the huntsman. â€œYou dare deceive me?!â€
â€œUhâ€¦ n-no, your majestic grace!â€
â€œThis is a deer heart. Not the heart of my child!â€ Yao threw the bow & heart at the man, storming to the window. â€œIdiots!!â€
The huntsman slinked away with a whimper of apology. Yao stared out the window as twilight approached, his thoughts clearing & mysterious. The mirror could only worry more.
