I had been on the run for the past 4 hours and was exausted. there was a sign for an inn, it said it was a mile away, I decided to keep walking because I needed food and a place to stay. I kept walking and eventually I made it to the inn. I walked up and knocked on the door,the inn keeper answered.
"Hello Madame" he said with a smle and he bowed. I curtseyed politely.
"How may I help you tonight Miss." He asked.
"Yes I need somwhere to stay for the night." I answered.
"Absolutely, come in come in please." he walked inside and I followed him in. He walked over to a big book.
"the swan chamber is free tonight and its only 15 bendles." he said to me.
"that sounds great, here." I reached into my pocket and handed the innkeeper 15 bendles.
"Wonderful, Wonderful, let me show you to your room." he replied and started walking toward some stairs, I followed him, he started to climb them. The inn was a descent looking place not excellent like the castle but it was good enough to stay in for a night.
"you look familiar" the inn keeper said as we walked up a second flight of stairs. I began to get nervous, I didnt want anyone to know I was the princess because I knew assoon as they figured it out I'd be forced to go back home and marry Todios.
"Well I'm well traveled" I said calmly. "Its possible I've stayed here before.
"Hmmm, I bet that's it." he said but he still didnt seem sure.
He began to walk down a hall and walked to thevery end of the hall and said "here is your room Miss."
"Thank you very much Sir." I turned and walked into my room as I did so the inn keeper said "If you need anything Miss just ask."
"Yes of course." I said and shut the door. I walked over to the bed and took my shoes off I layed down and closed my eyes and before I knew it I was asleep.

I awoke the next morning and I was starved. I got out of bed and put on a different traveling gown and packed up my stuff I put it on my bed. Then I went downstairs and went into the tiny (compaired to what I was used to) dining chamber. I walked over to a table and sat down, the dining mistress walked over to me and gave me a menue and asked what I would like to drink. I answered "just some orange juice." and she replyed "Yes absolutely Miss." and she walked away. I looked at the breakfest menu, I decided to get three omelets because I'd be traveling for maybe hours before I'd be able to eat again. When I ordered the dining mistress looked at me as if I were insane because I was ordering so much.
The mistress came back five minutes later with my food she set it down on the table and I immediately picked up my fork and began eating, I didnt really need to worry about manners so I didnt bother with them. I ate all three omelets. After I ate I asked the dining mistress to pack a lunch and some snacks for me and she came back about ten minutes later with a big box of food enough that should hopefully last me an entire day or more. I said thak you and left a tip on the table. I got up went back to my room, put the box in my bag and headed downstairs. I checked out with the inn keeper and started walking again. I was heading north as far away from Yannon as possible. I kept walking and I walked through a small town and stopped to eat trying to make my food last. I stopped at a little diner and sat down. I ordered some toasted catapillars and as I waited for my food to come I picked a newspaper that someone had left at the table I was sitting at. the second I picked it up the first thing I saw was the headline which said "Princess Nysatia Missing". I read this and realized how much trouble I was in and realized I had to run, now and had to hide I wouldnt be able to show my face anywhere and when I needed food I would have to disguise myself. I got up and quickly ran out of the diner I ran toward a forest a few hundred feet from the small village.

FWI IMI'M NOT YELLING MY KEYBOARD IS BROKEN

 IT IS REALLY GOOD... BUT IT COULD BE EVEN BETTER IF YOU SLOWED DOWN. USE MORE DESCRIPTION AND IT WILL BE AN AMAZING STORY. THE PLOT IS GOOD AND I LOVE THE MYTHICAL CREATURE ASPECT OF IT. I HOPE I DIDN'T OFFEND YOU JUST SOME CONSTRUCTIVE CRITISISM
