Truth and Dare
“I wonder if this is the right thing to do,” I said worriedly to my brother.
Ping nodded and drummed his fingers on his seat, a sign which meant that he was deep in thought.
“Sirs… I… I would like to thank…” the young lad stammered.
“Enough with the prattle! Can’t you see that we are busy? Count it as your blessing that you have us escorting you to the doctor,” I snapped.
The boy bowed and kept silent as he continued to massage his mother’s temples.
The thought of Prince Yunho on his own in an unfamiliar environment did not settle well with me at all. The maid would only be a liability as Prince Yunho would put her own safety before his if they ran into any trouble. The idea of the maid in a fight would have been laughable had the situation not been so dire. As it was, if the small, pretty girl actually knew any martial arts, I’ll change my name to Pong. A thousand and one ‘what if’s’ ran through my head, each situation ending with a hurt Prince Yunho.
A Stranger in the Night
“You’re joking?!” I asked in disbelief as Greta paused in the midst of her long speech, informing me of the sudden and abrupt journey, to take a deep breath.
“I am not done yet!” She snapped and slammed a cloth bag onto the table. The bag made a loud thud as it hit the surface of the table.
“You’ll need to pack a few more sets of clothes and a coat and be quick about it!” Greta barked and then swerved around to face Lyssa and Eris.
“Why are you girls still sitting there? Can’t you see how urgent this is? Give us a hand!”
“If you say so,” Eris shrugged and began folding the dresses.
Lyssa rolled her eyes and joined Eris as both of them stuffed the final few items into the blue cloth bag.
“Greta! Prince Yunho is already waiting in the main hall!” Pansy shouted as she dashed into the room.
“Oww…” Changmin moaned and rubbed his head as he stepped into the room.
“What happened, Changmin? Got kicked by a horse?” Yoochun laughed.
“Something worse than that…” Changmin complained as he pushed Yoochun off the chair and promptly sank gratefully into it.
“I never knew that women could be such smart creatures; I literally had to clean ALL the horses.”
“Hahaha! Do my ears deceive me? Has Changmin, the Know-it-all finally met his match?” Junsu laughed and whacked Changmin on the back.
Title: Deadly Vota — An Assassin Story
Genre: Romance, dark, chaptered, adventure, comedy
Rating: PG-13 (Currently)
The world is often divided into black and white; however there is still that hazy grey area that few people are aware of. It is a zone of mindless matters, where the distinction between right and wrong is blurred, where murder can be seen as a mere task. At the heart of this madness, we find a group of people, I beg your pardon, what I meant was a group of assassins, female ones mind you. A lethal clan born of darkness but encased in the soft silky skin of a woman. But we’re not interested in how this clan began. Our story begins with the Eighth Generation, where three deadly assassins are entrusted with a mission, one of great importance and danger, one that would bring the past, present and future into a web of turmoil. Truths are twisted; emotions are manipulated while life and death is a struggle between the powerful and weak; it is a journey of no return.

“WAKE UP! WAKE UP!” A rude bossy voice bellowed, followed by a few sharp raps on the door, smashing into my peaceful slumber.
I opened my eyes groggily and pushed Eris’s hand off me; it was the crack of dawn and I could see the faint rays of daybreak streaming through the window.
“Whatsup?” Lyssa muttered sleepily beside Eris.
I groaned as I recalled, “It’s riding day,” I yawned and nudged Eris who stirred and continued to sleep blissfully.
“Bring the culprits in,” the Judge commanded.
Two guards dragged a sobbing Eris and a deeply shaken Ker into the centre of the courtroom.
“Coroner Mim, what are the results?” the Judge asked an old man seated at the far left corner of the courtroom. Coroner Mim bowed and made his way towards the centre of the courtroom, carefully avoiding the two maids as if wary that one of them might suddenly produce a knife and stab him.
“Your Honour, I am deeply regretful to say that we were unable to save Physician Ko. He was killed instantly by a blow to his neck. From our experience, it seems like he was pushed violently and smashed his neck against the edge of the table,” Coroner Mim said and passed a thick scroll to the Judge.
“He…he… di…died?” Eris whimpered and looked up at Ker. Ker did not seem to hear her as she continued to stare blankly at the floor.
OMGOSH! I can’t believe I spent the entire day making this! haha! Anyway… do enjoy the trailer:)
This is from my collection of one-shots called Mister and Miss and Jae’s Story is the first story, do enjoy:)
“Mummy! Tell me Jae’s story again!” Jae Ru pestered me as I gently pushed him towards his bed.
“You never get tired of this one do you?”I asked as I fondled his hair lovingly.
“Ok!” I breathed out and settled myself comfortably beside him.
“Once upon a time, there was a girl called Yae Jin who worked in a small pastry shop in town…”
The First Death
“This is an absolute waste of time,” I exclaimed, exasperated as I slammed the book I was reading on the floor.
We had been researching in the Royal Library for the past few months on any information or cure that could help our Father but every single day, we came up with zilch and as every fruitless day passed, our confidence and hope deteriorated a little more. Every second in the Royal Library seemed to stretch on forever and I was itching to do something more productive.
“Patience is a virtue, Hyung,” Changmin said without looking up from his book.
“Patience is not exactly my strength,” I snapped back and then sighed.
“… and Crown Prince Jaejoong likes his meals served on porcelain dishes as he feels it brings out the taste in food. Are you listening to me Lyssa?!” Greta snapped irritably as Lyssa continued to stir the soup, plainly ignoring her blabber.
“The Crown Prince Jaejoong also prefers…”
