Without any further discussion, you were whisked away by the two men and taken back out into the hall.
“King Kageyama is going to kill me,” Hinata wailed softy to himself as he kept a firm grip on your arm to support you as he and captain Daichi escorted you back to your room.
“May I ask what happened?” captain Daichi asked you softly, not wanting to upset you by asking such a blunt question, but also wanting to find out why they women had jumped on you like that.
“Oh…umm…” you said softly, wondering if you should admit to the truth or to cover for them.
“Y/N, are you hurt badly anywhere?” Hinata cut in, still worried about your well-being.
“I will be fine,” you replied him with a smile, “they are nothing more than scratches and bruises.”
“Scratches?! Where?” Hinata asked with horror.
You reached to your stinging cheek and felt along the two bleeding lines.
“Here, but they are not deep,” you said softly.
Hinata leaned forwards while he walked and looked at your cheek while you turned your head a little more to show him, as it was on the opposite side of your face to which he was walking on, and he visibly paled when he saw the marks.
“I will be sentenced to death immediately!” he whimpered, panicked beyond repair.
“Please,” you said, taking both your arms from captain Daichi and Hinata, “I can walk myself, and I will speak to the King about what happened.”
“But you….” Hinata started, but then stopped, “yes… ok… please, Y/N, would you put in a good word for me. I am so very sorry that I wasn’t there to oversee the visitation, I know I should have stayed to ensure your safety, but I had faith that—.”
You held you hand up to stop him.
“Hinata, do not worry, I will take care of this.” You then turned to captain Daichi. “And thank you for coming to my rescue.”
“Oh, it’s my pleasure,” he replied with a gentle blush on his cheeks as your eyes met.
You nodded and straightened, as best you could, as your right hip hurt a little, then led the way to your room.
Captain Daichi left as soon as you were safely back to your quarters, but Hinata hung around like a fly, still fretting over the fact that you had been hurt and your physical perfection, marred.
“Hinata, I am fine, please leave,” you finally said to him.
He wavered, but then finally left, and you went to the bathroom to check your body over.
Stripping off, you saw a few large bruises had started to appear on your thighs and you had a scrape on your left arm, that you hadn’t noticed before, as well as the claw marks on your right cheek.
“How am I going to handle this?” you wondered.
King Kageyama was in his chamber, watching out the window when he heard two station guards talking as they walked below his sill.
“Yes. They jumped her, she was pretty beat up apparently,” one guard said casually.
“Does the King know yet?” the other asked, “he’ll be royally pissed to know his personal concubine was injured.”
Kageyama nearly snapped a piece of the sill in his hand his temper gripped him so tightly.
Spinning from the window he hollered out across the room to the other door.
“HINATA!” he yelled at the top of his lungs.
The orangette got such a fright at hearing his name yelled so loudly that he opened the door with such speed, he fell flat on his face.
“Yes, my King?” he asked worriedly as he lay prostrate on the floor, asking his question into the flooring.
“My concubine!” King Kageyama snapped, “where is…. She…. Bring her to me!”
“Y-Yes, of course, King, I will bring her right away,” Hinata said, getting up off the floor and rubbing his nose and knees as he backed away and pulled the door closed.
“I’m done for,” he whispered to the door guards as he hobbled off to get you.
You were in the bath when you heard him calling for you through the crack in your door as he held it open a tad and you freaked out internally.
“I am… in a state of disrobe,” you called back fearfully as you sank deeper into the water and covered your crotch with your hand.
“Y/N… the King… is calling for you… I will give you time to get ready,” Hinata called fearfully.
“I see,” you called back, sitting up and reaching for a towel to wrap around yourself.
You got out and quickly dried then pulled on your garments and checked your cheek in the polished metal again.
It was still red and bleeding a little and you pulled a face then grabbed your head covering and quickly went to meet Hinata at the door.
“I don’t know why he is calling this early,” Hinata said as you two went towards his room, “he did not say why he wanted to see you…”
“Hinata, don’t worry,” you said, gently placing a hand on his arm.
“But I am worried,” Hinata replied you.
“Yes, I know, but please trust me,” you said calmly.
“You’re my only hope,” Hinata replied with brows knitted in worried fear.
Silently, you two continued on until you reached the large double doors of King Kageyama’s personal room.
“My King… I have Y/N with me…” Hinata called nervously.
The sound of approaching footsteps could be heard and the door opened to a very pissed looking King Kageyama.
He looked you up and down and you met his eye contact before looking down at the ground respectfully.
“Come,” he ordered sharply, stepping back so that you could enter.
You walked in as easily as you could, trying not to limp or show any other signs of pain.
The door was closed sharply on a fretting Hinata and then it was just you and the King.
“You called for me?” you asked in a gentle voice.
“Remove your head covering,” the King commanded you.
You hesitated a little.
“May I ask, why?” you asked softly.
“When I ask you to do something. You do it,” King Kageyama said angrily, his tone sounding more harsh than usual.
Getting a little indignant by his tone of voice you looked up at him with an unamused look in your eye.
“That attitude of yours…” you replied sassily, almost about to give him a piece of your mind but then remembering that, he was a King… and you were not… made you bite into the rest of that sentence and swallow it before it got you into any more hot water.
