King's Power, King's Pawn

Work Text:

It didn’t feel right, murdering innocents.  But by the strength with which they fought, they would have tried to take their child back, no doubt.  Worse, it would have been known that the child was not the King’s daughter.  It would have been for naught.

Covered in blood, the baby screamed at the top of her lungs.

Who could blame her, poor thing?

According to the ancients, whosoever held the child and the Crystal Ring would have power over the entire world.  The Kingdom would never want again.

The soldier tried to rock her gently, but...

It didn’t feel right.
