"Lord!?" I exclaimed, quickly getting off the bed.
"I knew you'd react like this. Listen, I'm no different than you. Just calm down and
let me explain."
I let out a heavy sigh and sat back on the bed to listen to his story.
"That's better. Alright so I was the youngest out of 7 other siblings. I was 8th in
line and I knew there was no chance for me to get any right to the throne. I was
constantly picked on by my siblings. My mother and father didn't expect anything of
"When I was 13, I asked our butler what he thought I should do. I mean I wanted to be
worth something. I didn't want to be a mat to be stepped on, anymore. I was sick of
it! My butler told me I could forget about being royalty and live a normal life. I
spoke with my father and he beat me for even thinking about the idea.
"I knew immediately that this wasn't the life for me. Unlike most people, I would
prefer being a commoner. I left that night and haven't seen my family since. My
wife... she doesn't know any of this. The reason I told you the truth is because I
feel like I can trust you to stay with me. Now can you?"
I hesitated. From the way he told me, I could tell it was the truth but he still had
a wife and child and I didn't want to ruin a family. I loved him but wasn't willing
to risk it. I finally said "I believe you. I believe every word but you still have a
wife and child at home. At the end of the day, you will go home and go to a family
that actually loves you while I will sit in this empty house alone."
"You are not alone."
I shook my head and got off the bed but before I could leave, Adrian grabbed my
wrist. "Why were you on the streets when I found you? You don't have a home to go to
I stopped and looked back at him, tears filling my eyes. He was right. I didn't have
anywhere to go. if I left, where would I go?
"Come on. I will bring you to my real home. We have plenty of room for you. I promise
you." I looked at his hand and relaxed.
"Please bring me to paradise, my guardian angel," I begged him.
When his car approached the large mansion, I was astounded. I didn't think he would
live in a mansion such as this. He was a true prince. "Welcome to my home."
I smiled a little as I followed him inside the house. We were greeted by a line of
maids. "Welcome home master Adrian," they said in unison.
"Damn. I am so jealous."
Adrian let out a laugh, his British accent sticking out more and more but he quickly
cleared his throat. "It's nothing really," he said with his American accent.
A women came out of a room and ran over to him, hugging him tightly. "I missed you so
much! Our daughter missed you too."
As soon as she saw me, her expression darkened. "Who is she?" She demanded, causing
me to scowl defensively but he grabbed my arm in an attempt to make me stop. I did.
"Listen honey, this is Alice. She's uh, the daughter of a friend and right now she
has nowhere to stay so I figured she could stay here for a little bit."
I smiled a little, hoping this women wouldn't throw me out on the streets like some
piece of trash. But was I? Trash, I mean. Its not like anyone cares about me. To be
honest, I was glad I ran away. If my mom didn't care about me then why would I stay?
I was almost eighteen and could obviously make my own decisions. I didn't need her.
This was my new family. I wasn't going to run away. Not anymore.
It was then that my phone started to ring. Both of them looked at me as I answered
it. "Hello? Mom? I'm sorry. I'm not telling you where I am. I'm not going home. Don't
call the cops! I told you I was leaving!" Silence.
She had hung up on me to most likely call the cops to report to them that I ran away.
She would probably make up another bullshit lie.
Adrian's wife said "I'm not going to be harboring a runaway! I would prefer not to be
arrested for kidnapping."
Adrian tried to calm her down but I turned my back to them and said "this was a
mistake. I should never have come here."
I felt him grab my wrist once again. "Wait... you don't have anywhere to go. Please,
I'll convince her. Just don't leave. Not yet."
I stopped and watched him walk away from me. A cute four year old girl waddled over
to me and asked "who are you?"
I smile and whisper "nobody..."
I lay in the bed, staring at the ceiling. She gave me a month to find a job and get
enough money to move out. I couldn't get enough money to pay for an apartment in that
period of given time. I was slowly starting to hate her.
I heard a muffled knock on my bedroom door and I sat up. "What is it?" I called out.
I heard Adrian ask "can I come in?"
"What if I say no?" I asked.
He walked in with a soft smile on his face. "I'll still come in."
I smiled and started to laugh. "No matter how hard I pray, you just won't go away."
"No I won't."
I whispered "thank you."
I was happy that he wouldn't leave me to be alone anymore. I didn't want to cry
anymore. I wanted to smile. I wanted to laugh. I wanted to be loved. I wanted to live
like a normal teenager. He was my only hope. I let him embrace me, his warm breath
carressing my neck. It felt nice to be here. I wanted to feel like his princess for
just this night.
The next day, I skipped school so I could look for a job. It was stressful,
especially when every job had either turned me down or didn't pay enough.
I sat on a bench, exhausted from job searching. I didn't know where else to go. I
went every place I could think of.
"Hey kid. How old are you?"
I looked up to see a man standing in front of me. I didn't speak at first but he
asked more forcefully "how old are you?"
I said softly "seventeen."
The man smirked and replied "we'll say your eighteen. Come to the club at eight to
start your first shift." He handed me a card.
I looked at him and asked "do I need to fill out paper work?"
He shook his head and said "just bring me that ass and those tits of yours and you'll
make me millions." He walked off.
I knew immediately that I'd soon regret this but I had no where to turn to.
So here I was, standing in front of this strip club. I knew I couldn't tell Adrian
about this. He'd probably yell at me.
As soon as I walked in, the man walked over to me with a cigar in his mouth. He was
fat and disgusting, wearing a robe that just barely covered his man parts. I gave him
the best smile I could muster but inside, I felt like I was going to throw up.
He brought me to the changing room behind the stage and handed me a skimpy bra and
panties. I raised my eyebrow. I couldn't believe I had to wear this. This would be
terrible. As soon as he left, I sat on one of the stools and let the tears fall.
Why was I doing this? I was better than this. I hated myself for succumbing to peer
pressure. I hated myself for running away. What was I going to do?
"Hey, new girl! You should start getting dressed. Boss won't be happy if his girl
isn't dressed before the show." I looked up to see a beautiful girl wear a short
skimpy red laced dress. She had red lipstick on and even thicker eye shadow on. Not
as thick as the eye shadow I currently wore but it was still pretty heavy.
I nod and quickly got dressed in the bra and panties he gave me. "What now?"
She chuckled and asked "have you never stripped before?"
I shook my head and she started to help me get ready. She was kind to me. I was happy
that I could meet a friend. I was hoping that I'd be alone. She even helped me put
concieler over my scars. She didn't seem to ask any questions which I liked. I wish
this world had more people like her in this world.
When it was my turn, I was wearing the same outfit but sexier. The girl, whom's name
I found out was Sophia, had actually succeeded in making me beautiful yet sexy and
dangerous. They called me the Gothic Beauty. I grabbed my pole and started dancing
like I've never danced before
Now granted, I've never pole danced before and was just bullshitting the entire thing
but in a way, it was fun. At certain parts, I chose to rip off my clothes one by one
until I was just standing there in my bra and panties.
I moved my body with the music and let the men throw money at me and I even let a man
put some money in my panties.
When the song was over, I gathered the money I had earned and walked off the stage. I
was hugged by Sophia. "You were absolutely stunning. Are you sure you haven't done
I shook my head, smiling. I didn't know what happened. it was as if my body became
one with the music. The boss came into the dressing room and said "you were a
natural. As I said my Gothic Beauty, you will make me millions.
The rest of the night, I spent waitressing. Turns out at this strip club, not only
are you a stripper but your also a waitress. I stood there in my skimpy lingerie
while serving the men all different kinds of alcohol. Every so often I'd have to give
a man a lap dance which was alright except when they would try to touch me which was
an absolute no no.
This was my first day and already, I felt at home. The girls were like my sisters and
were constantly looking out for me. They didn't ask questions and neither did I.
I got home at about three a.m. to see Adrian standing at the doorway. "Where the hell
"I told you I'd be home late," I said as I through my bag to the side.
"Not three a.m. It's a school night!"
I couldn't believe he was the one to be lecturing me about being home late. My mom
never cared when I came home so him lecturing me was new. I wasn't going to take
"What are you? My dad? I'm pretty sure your not cause you'd have a lot of explaining
to do." I smirked at him.
"As long as you live under my roof, you live by my rules."
I looked at him, astounded that he brought that up. "What the fuck!?" I yelled.
"Watch your mouth!"
"No! I will say whatever the fuck I want! I'm only staying with you and your whore of
a girlfriend because I have nowhere else to go!"
At that, he hit me. I couldn't believe that this man would hit me. He was so kind but
in one day, he turned kind to an asshole. I wasn't going to stay here with him. I
would rather be alone. I would rather die on the streets then live here.
I looked at him, pure hatred in my eyes. "You know what? I'm not going to take this!
You want to know where I was? I was at work. I told you I was working. I'm working at
a job that I might actually get enough money in a month to get a place to live. In
one day, I've made two hundred dollars! Have fun with your stupid life with your
stupid wife in your stupid mansion!"
I knew I was acting like I was five but I was sick of being walked all over by
everyone in my life. He asked "where are your working?"
"At Pandora's club!" I yelled.
"At the strip club! Why would you steep so low?"
I started to laugh and I said "Why would I steep so low? Maybe I was already this
low, Try asking your wife why she gave me only a month to find a place I can afford
I went to my room without another word.
After packing, I called Sophia. "Hey. I was wondering, if it's not to much to ask but
I'm leaving my current residence because of some differences and I was wondeirng if I
could stay with you until I can afford an apartment."
"Who are you on the phone with?" I jumped and saw Adrian at my door with a concerned
look. "One of your whore friends?"
I clenched my fist. I couldn't let him see me break. "Thank you," I said before
hanging up and then looking at Adrian. "Look, we both knew this wouldn't work out.
What if she gets suspicious of us? What then? You get arrested for soliciting a
minor? What would happen to your daughter? You obviously love your family. Why make
them suffer over a worthless girl like myself? We both knew that I never deserved
I walked past him, my bag in my left hand.
Before he could stop me, I left into the darkness of the night.
