Debt of Fate

Ch 5: Locked in [pt1]

le for her to believe the doctors words about her condition.

According to what she had understood, she would need regular human essence to be able to live her life. But Natasha currently felt fine so she was not inclined to believe the doctor.

Then again, I had no energy in my body until I was kissed. Then, did that rush of energy I felt the life force?

Natasha wanted to get to the bottom of this puzzle but her head was beginning to hurt again. Her body was making it clear to Natasha that she had not recovered yet and it was not a good idea to make any hasty move.

Her thoughts were interrupted by the knock at the door and Natasha waved her hand to allow her entry. When the knock repeated itself she finally opened her mouth to give the person outside her door entry.

It was a maid Natasha had never seen before. But that made sense since Natasha had been asleep for the past few years.

”M-My lady, it is nice of you to wake up again. C-Can I help you with something. ”

The maid looked ready to shit herself as she looked at Natasha. The maid was not looking at Natasha but looking right in front of Natasha.

It was a complete change from the past and Natasha could not help and marvel at this change.

”Excuse me, but can I get a change of clothes and some food? I would like to eat before taking a walk outside. ”

The maid looked startled at Natashas request. The pale face combined with a wide-eyed look made it seem like the maid would faint any second.

It had not been her intention to scare the maid but Natasha could not find it in herself to reassure the maid. She had learned that if you gave the maid an inch, they would take a mile from you.

And Natasha also knew that her prejudice against the maids had nothing to do with the frightened child in front of her. But she was still not able to bring herself back down.

”I-my lady-we-I-you are not allowed to go out. Im sorry but I am under strict orders to not let you leave this room unless the crown prince comes to accompany you himself. ”

Natasha should have been surprised. She should even be shocked at what she heard the maid say to her.

But somehow, she could not find it in herself to be shocked. The current Richard seemed like a person capable of ordering to restrain Natasha. Especially with the hint of darkness, she saw in his eyes.

Natasha had learned some things about human psychology in her last life. She had not been an expert but Natasha had been made to take lessons to ensure her clients best mental condition.

And some of the books she had read talked about guilty consciousness.

It was entirely possible that Richards current condition was a result of this phenomenon but it would fade away with time and effort. Once he sees Natasha in action, he would be able to put everything in the past.

As for Sir Ashley? He will have to learn to let go as well. Natasha was not a toy they could try to acquire.

”M-My lady. If there is nothing else, then I would like to take my leave- ”

”And where do you think you are going? I don think I permitted you to leave this room. Are you ignoring your duties? ”

Natasha hated to be this harsh with the maid but she had no other choice if she wanted to get her point across.

She had never been strict with the maids before since it was the role she had to play. She had acted meek and allowed them to walk all over her. But that would no longer be the case for her.

Not only was her role over, but Natasha was also in a foul mood. She did not want to be triggered by the foolishness of the maids.

”I-my lady you cannot- ”

”I am not asking you to take me out. But just because you cannot follow half of my order, doesn mean you can ignore the other part of it as well. Now hurry up and fetch me my things. ”

The maid quickly left the room and Natasha sighed in peace. Today was turning out to be such a drag and it was only the first day after she had woken up. She dreaded to see what the future had in store for her.

But one thing was for certain – she could not stay in the palace. It was too dangerous for her.
