"You shouldn't worry, he'll be just fine. It's only a few bruises and cuts. Besides that he's perfectly fine. He'll be really sore though, so tell him to take it easy." Said the healer as he walked out the door.

"Thank you so much. I'll make sure I dress his wounds properly." Sernada shut the door after she waved goodbye to the healer.

Davin was upstairs moaning. Sernada carried him to her house after the carriage hit him. The carriage was traveling out of control and hit Davin while he was walking across the road. The carriage driver left a little while before the healer, after he found out that Davin was okay and that his own head was safe from the chopping block.

"Oh the pain, the torture, THE AGONY!" Davin cried from up stairs. Sernada rolled her eyes as she was in the kitchen getting a cold wet rag for his head. She couldn't belief how wussy he was. It was only a few bruises and cuts. A Rose bush could have done more damage then what had happened to him.

"Please just put me out of my misery! The pain is to intense!" He called.

"Will you shut up?!" Sernada said while entering the guest room. Her parents had left after breakfast this morning, so the house was hers until the next morning. They were visiting relatives. Sernada didn't want to go, besides she had to take care of the animals and crops.

She put the cold wet rag on the bruise that was on his forehead.

"I don't know about you, but when I see or hear a carriage coming I tend to MOVE!" She yelled at him sarcastically.

"He didn't give me much warning you know. It wasn't enough time...and..."

"Excuses, Excuses. Just admit it Davin, you weren't paying any attention. You were daydreaming or something."

"How dare you?!...Accuse me of not paying attention...I should..."

"Anyway, you're just lucky you weren't' hurt badly or even killed for that matter!"

"What do you care if I get hurt or not eh?" Davin formed a devilish smile on his lips.

"Well...uhh...Well your fiance wouldn't like it much if she had to drag you to the alter all smashed and bruised. I'm just looking out for her best interest, as well as yours."

Davin stopped smiling and looked out the window over the bed.

"I don't want to marry her you know."

"What? What do you mean?" Sernada asked while changing his bandages around his head.

"You see, my mother wants me to be married ASAP. She wants to have grand children so badly. So she pushed me off on a Duke's daughter. Her name is Flora. She is everything I didn't want in a wife. She's just so darn..." He sighed and continued. "She's just to spoiled and snobby."

"AHA!" Sernada exclaimed. Then she realized she had said that out loud. She put her hands over her mouth and blushed from embarrassment.

"Well anyway..." Davin continued, ignoring Sernada's outburst. "Believe it or not, I don't want to be a Prince."

Doesn't want to be a Prince? Did this guy fall off his royal rocker? Or maybe the carriage knocked some screws loose.

"Why don't you want to be a prince? You get pampered, feed wonderful food, have lots of money, and practically get spoiled!"

"That why I don't want to be one. I want to know what it's like to actually work for my own. I have always wanted to have my own farm, and own crops to grow. I want to work hard and feel what feels like to actually work for something. I want to be normal!" His eyes glazed over as he stared out the window. "Just...normal." He whispered.

This guy was actually serious. Sernada watched him as he stared out the window. He seems so troubled. Maybe he wasn't that bad.

"Well...anyway." He said turning back to Sernada.

"I really need to get back to the castle." He said.

"By the way, what did you say to Flora about where you were going? I know certainly well you didn't tell her that you were going to stay in another girl's guest bedroom." Sernada said smiling.

Davin laughed. "No, but I did tell her I was visiting an elderly friend of mine."

"Just what are you trying to say Davin? That I'm old?" Sernada asked sarcastically.


"Oh how dare you!" Sernada took the wet rag off his head and rung it out on his face.

"Hey!" He laughed.

Sernada went to the door. "Hurry up and get ready to go. I'll take you back to the castle. I know for sure that you can't ride alone, not in your condition."

"Yes...Dear." Davin said smiling.

Sernada walked out of the room with a smile on her face.
