Hayden looked at Donovan "Rotate the guards in the west and then check the slave masters guards for anyone that isn't treating the slaves a little decent although I think my act last night on the Lieutenant will set the example I want but if there are any strays lock them up in the dungeon and I'll set them straight." He says covering Kaja up and then going to the long mirror to adjust his outfit. He fixed his collar and straightened out his sleeves standing tall and bold. His gold eyes flashed a bit "Any report from last nights take over of the western kingdom." he asked

Donovan stood straight placing his hands behind his back, "My pleasure, to handle the....straglers." He gave a devilish grin, he was sure there would be quite a few to defy the warning. And Donovan would be sure to lock them away, not without giving them a piece of his mind beforehand. He glanced at the girl again, he wasn't sure what Hayden's obsession with the girl was other than plans, seeing him be so...gentle and not having already taken her for his own was a little strange. But, Donovan knew better than to question him. He pulled his gaze from the girl to look at Hayden through the mirror. "Some resistance, they aren't very willing to give up their territory. Even facing the evidence of their clear misuse of power and corruption they chose to fight. I'd say by tomorrow night we should have the western kingdom as our own. The slaves in their stronghold, what do you wish for me to do with them?"

"The slaves it their stronghold we will take as our own and they will stay there to work. The plan to expand to the west will be great so we will need all the help and workers we will get. Once its taken I will ride over to seek out personal ones and if there are any you want feel free to do it after that." Hayden says "Your thoughts are withheld what is on your mind?" he asked looking in the mirror from Kaja's sleeping body to Donovan

Donovan nodded at Hayden's words, "I will make sure they are taken care of." When he was questioned about his thoughts his gaze shifted once again to the slave lying in the bed. They had become close, and Donovan trusted Hayden with ruling over the vast majority than he would most. He took a small breath before speaking, "I am not certain why you chose to be gentle with her. You could surely order her to do as you wish and she would. It is...unsettling to see you be so...gentle and patient. From what I have seen she is very beautiful, but I am almost certain that is not why your patience persists." Donovan pulled his gaze from Kaja, who was sleeping soundly, back to his commander and friend.

Hayden turned with a smirk "because unlike the rest she could be something more. If dont right and trained right you maybe looking at the new sorceress or even queen depending on how the cards are play." He says looking at kaja "Besides I think I fell for this one since the moment I saw her. I dont know how to explain how I feel about her."

"Then I will trust your judgment as always and will assist where I am needed." Donovan sighed, "Though I only ask that you do not let these....feelings blind you. If not for your sake then mine." Walking next to Hayden he placed a hand on his shoulder, "While I know you would adore staring at her until she wakes you do have duties to attend. I will make sure she is taken care of as you requested." Donovan gave Hayden a knowing look, the man was nt known to be late and would not start now.

Hayden nodded "Why do you think I said if done right." He says with a smirk and a raise of his eyebrow. His eyes sparked a bright gold and he licked his lips."Tell you what if I stray and start going blind you have my permission to set me straight so I can see again" he says turning away from her and to Donovan as he spoke.

As Donovan talked about being late he nodded in agreement. "Let's get going then." he says shaking his head and smiling. "How do I look?' he asked as they headed to the door knowing its all about appearance with his status.

Donovan couldn't help but laugh a little at his statement, "My pleasure sir." He spared one last glance to Kaja watching her roll turning her back to them before Hayden spoke. Walking with him to the door Donovan smirked, "Why a King, of course, they wouldn't expect anything less." Donovan walked him out of the door and closed it firmly behind him.

Kaja woke up nearly an hour after the two had left the room. Opening her eyes slowly before shooting upright. Looking around she realized she was in her room, had it all been a dream? Kaja thought about her conversation with the girl this morning and her encounter with the sir. Looking down she saw she was wearing a different dress than the night before and let out a breath. So it hadn't been a dream...Did he bring me here? The last thing she could remember was him showering, she must have fallen asleep on his bed. Seeing how she was fully clothed relief washed over her.

Hayden went to the throne room and was doing his normal business with the merchents when he was told Kaja was awake "Have her come to me." He ordered and dismissed the guard

A few minutes later a guard knocked on the door to Kaja's room and poked his head in "Miss?" he says "The prince would like you to join him in the throne room and I am here to escort you" he says with a salute to her. His blue eyes seemed to sparkle and seemed so full of life and his dirt blonde hair slicked back

Kaja jumped at the knock, she had been too relaxed and it had caught her off guard. She looked up at the guard wearily, Prince? That explained all the bowing during the slave trading, she glanced the guard over. His salute made her uncomfortable, she had expected chains or something to lead her with. But, then again this master of hers was proving time and time again he was different. Kaja slipped out from under the cover, placing her feet on the floor as she stood. She walked over to him using her hands to fix her hair. She didn't speak, instead, she just gave a simple nod that gestured she was ready to follow him. The bruise on her face was still evident as was the red ring around her neck.

Hayden straightened up as he saw Kaja enter the throne room "There you are, How was your rest?" he asked with a smirk as his eyes shined a bit brighter. He licked his lips as he watched her and dismissed the others from the room "I hope you slept well, did anyone disturb you?" he asked sitting there like a statue.

Kaja walked in taking a moment to glance around before he spoke. Now knowing he was a prince helped her to understand the authority he had, though if anything it unnerved her. Royals were the worst of them, she held her hands in front of her before answering, taking a moment to glance at the people that left. "I rested as well as one should sir. No one woke me..." Kaja was a little confused about why he hadn't woke her, she had been given orders to sit and wait until he was done, and then to shadow Sarsa. Remembering her orders made her remember he had a woman and child to visit, envy crept up her spine as she lowered her eyes so he wouldn't see the green color in them. Why was she envious, so what if he had a child and a woman, she was a slave and had been all her life.

Hayden saw a flash of green and smirked "Alright you what is on your mind your eyes are green and from my time with you that means theres something on your mind" he says getting up and coming to her. He ran his hand through his hair as he came down the few steps and stood in front of her. His eyes flashed an amusing gold as he watched her.

Kaja flushed and bit her tongue, she couldn't lie. That much she had learned early, not only would he know but it made him angry. Kaja looked up as he stood in front of her. Her face was red and eyes still green she shifted them from his golden ones. His stare was intense, straightening her back she cleared her throat. "How are the woman and child? Was is a son she bore?" Kaja cursed her tone betraying her as the snarky tone was clear in her voice. She had only known the man for a day and yet she acted like she was his betrothed.

"I haven't been there yet I figured you'd want to walk with me and then after we could walk the garden" Hayden says hearing her tone and raising a brow "Whats with the tone Kaja?" he asked and reached up and lifted her chin to look up at him. He examined her up and down a bit and smirked slightly.

Kaja stared at him for a moment before turning her chin taking a step back. She did not enjoy him examining her, and it did her no good in trying to calm her burning face. "If sir wishes me too, then I will go." Kaja decided she would pretend as if he had never asked her anything at all, it wasn't like she could explain her tone.

Hayden's jaw tightened a bit and then shook his head "I must admit seeing you worked up for no reason is really hot. Come on we will go check on them now and then walk and hopefully by then you will tell me why your tone was filled with jealousy and envy" he says grabbing her hand and leading her to the barracks where the slaves slept.

((Heres what the barrack kind of looks like https://qph.fs.quoracdn.net/main-qimg-f8ed32bbfc1cb540fc120663c0dad16d-c ))

In the Barracks there was a young woman with a new born son. She had given birth over night and she was still sweating and panting. She was weak from the loss of blood. The baby cried and squirmed.

Kaja flushed harder and pursed her lips, if he knew she was jealous why would he bother to mention it? She allowed him to grab her hand and trailed beside him. She had expected a stable rather than a proper room for slaves. She belonged there, even in the small room she felt more at peace there than she had in the oversized bed. Her eyes scanned the room until seeing the woman still exhausted from loss of blood. Kaja's eyes softened, the jealous replaced with a dull emotion. She slipped her hand from his and walked over to the woman. Plenty of times in the slave cages there were pregnant women, often sick and screaming as their children were ripped from them or sick from the conditions. She crouched down till she was n her knees beside the woman, not caring much for the state of the dress. "Would you like help miss?"

The girl looked at Kaja crying a bit "My baby please care for my baby" she says as Hayden came to her and his eyes flashed "Kaja she's getting weaker I don't know if she will make it." he says looking from the woman to the baby and growling a bit. His eyes seemed to darkening as he searched for answers trying to assess the situation. "Sarsa Leah get in here" He called out for them

Kaja looked at the woman wide-eyed her eyes shifted to a sky blue color as she looked at the small child. Kaja gently took the baby from the woman, "Please, rest miss. I will care for the babe. But, you must be strong." Kaja grimaced as Hayden confirmed what she already knew, she stood making sure the child was secure in her arms rocking it to soothe it's crying. She took a step back as the two women flooded the room. Kaja looked at Hayden helplessly, "S-she has to make it f-for the child. I-I will care for it until she is well." Kaja knew better than to place her faith in the thought that the woman might survive, but even she knew the odds. Looking down at the child she rocked it gently to help ease its cries.
