Ezekiel's eyebrow rose as Sam spoke and he chuckled lightly for a moment at his attempts at starting a conversation with the king, or perhaps it was a way to try and get back on the king's good side, in an attempt to get him to apologize maybe for the injuries. Of course, Ezekiel didn't feel at that moment like talking, so instead he left the conversation with his chuckle and returned to focusing his attention on the papers laid across his desk. He chewed on his lip, tapping a pen idly against the wooden table, the faint sound of metal meeting wood echoing through the vast room, the silence only broken up by this one simple sound. One could almost cut the silence with a knife it was so thick.

The king would be left alone for many hours, left to his mind and his wandering thoughts, the words on the paper being his only company besides for the quiet figure of the boy laying on the couch, the even more quiet sounds of flipping pages entering the empty atmosphere. The king made no attempt in comforting the boy or speaking to him, for Sam would need to learn that while in the king's presence, he would have to be quiet and helpful. Ezekiel was a busy man and could not spare precious moments of his day to Sam, even if he wished he could. It had been a long time since he had quality time with someone, but that would have to wait till the aging king was his own man once more, the day being spent working on his kingdom and making sure things were to be in order.

Kasperi had left his father alone for hours, not wishing to disturb Ezekiel as he worked in his study. He chewed on his lip, bored out of his mind. There was nothing for the young prince to do, for he wasn't adventurous and he was often left by himself with no company, left to the books. He had to have read all the books in the castle at least five times over by now and the thought of picking up a book he already knew the ending too made the boy groan in agony. He walked around the halls aimlessly, taking his time and striding slowly. It would soon be lunch time and he had a thought of maybe he could bring lunch to his father and the new slave, maybe spend some time discussing plans if his father was in a good mood. It all really depended on his mood...

As lunch time neared, Kasperi began his stride to the kitchen, going to take over for a maid today to bring the two in the study some food. Walking in, the kitchen was bustling with fast workers and the smell of food smacked Kasperi in the face, making his stomach growl and he let out a chuckle at this before a smile crossed his face. He stopped a maid that looked to be carrying a tray of food for two and politely told her his plans before he took the food and a third portion was added to the tray.

"Thank you." Kasperi said, bowing his head slightly. The maid nodded back and returned to her other duties, leaving the prince alone.

He turned around, beginning to walk back towards the study area, a bit more pep to his step now and a small smile spread across his lips. He reached the door a few minutes later and set the tray down on a nearby table before knocking on the door.

Ezekiel was brought out of his thoughts at the sound of knocking on the door and raised an eyebrow. He turned his attention to Sam, who was still sprawled out on the couch reading his book. "Sam, go see who's at the door." He said before he turned his attention back to reading the documents in front of him.

Sam trying his best to not do anything that might upset Zeke or make him angry all over again, the most the boy could do was just sit on the nearby sofa and read the book he had picked at random from the man's room chamber as he flipped through the pages every now and again in an attempt to make some sort of understanding on just what it was all about. The Prince had never cared much to pay attention in school and had often ditched his lessons in favor of going into the woods one time too many, his knowledge of the ten wonders of the known universe being vague at best. Yes, it was interesting to read about the mountains of Yarghoul and it was fun to think about the upside down fields of the mysterious highlands, but what were the chances that he would ever be able to see these places, Prince or not? Now that he was a slave, Sam's chances of being able to travel freely were slim to none with the protective eye of Zeke always watching, his freedom only extending to that where the King could make sure he wasn't getting into unintentional trouble.

Being tempted more than once to spy on just what Zeke was writing down and planning out, Sam remained put as he remembered the bruises he had gotten on his arm for getting in the man's space earlier. The thought of actually getting into some serious trouble was a thought that Sam just wanting to shove to the side as he let his mind wander away rather than read the confusing book before him, his head resting on the side of the sofa as he soon drifted off for a mild nap, memories of the way things had been back home coming back to his mind in waves. Eating sweet fruit in the forest, raiding the winter pantries to help those left in the cold, sneaking off to the lake rather than get fitted for new clothing...it was all gone, and for what...the sake of water?? Even if his life did matter less than the people, that didn't mean it didn't hurt Sam any less to know that his father would give him up so easily, any thought of somehow getting back home being erased immediately at the thought of how his family would react if he was ever found again. No...Sam would never go home, yet he would never be accepted here....he had no home to speak of now.


The boy only being startled awake after about a half hour or so when he heard a rapping at the study door, Sam yawned tiredly as he heard Zeke tell him to go and answer it, him not seeing any problem with doing as he was told this time as he shifted off the couch and went to go and find out just who was needing the King so urgently, "I'm coming, I'm coming". Muttering under his breath as he was still half asleep, Sam wasn't paying much attention to his surroundings as he, in all his clumsiness, brushed past a desk near the sofa where the plinking sound of something falling over was just barely audible. It almost made the boy's heart stop in his chest as he didn't stop to check what had happened, him going to open the door instead as he didn't want to make it seem like he had done anything wrong. The sight of Prince Kaspari standing before him only worsening things now for Sam as he nodded hesitantly to the royal, the slave still remembered the coldness from seeing the Prince earlier, the sight of food next to the freckle faced 'adult' causing Sam's stomach to growl instinctively, "uh...I-I guess come in. It's Prince Kaspari, Zeke...".

Kasperi had lifted the tray back into his arms once more as he heard someone walking towards the door and as he expected, Sam opened the door instead of a servant or his father himself. He figured now that his father had his own personal slave, that servants and maids and people in general that he kept around him would no longer be as present as this boy standing before Kasper, looking too much alike himself and his mother.

He gritted his teeth for a moment, a wave of emotions washing over the boy from anger to sadness back to fear and dread. Though something took the young prince by surprise and he resisted the urge to react as he noticed the dark purple bruises already clouding over with dark blue covering Sam's arm and one on his chin. Suddenly dread and fear was the only emotion he was feeling, along with guilt for allowing this to happen. He knew his father had the potential to be violent, witnessing and experiencing it on multiple occasions, but he hadn't expected for him to lash out so openly on a slave he cherished more than anything, though he supposed in a way it was only natural, his father was always a violent man.

"Thank you." Kasperi said, bowing his head only slightly towards the boy, his voice lacking the cold feeling it had carried earlier. Now it was replaced with a quiet understanding and he wished he could have done more, but with his father right there, it wasn't a possibility.

Ezekiel looked up from his papers, leaning back in his chair for a moment as he watched his son walk through the door, a tray of food in his arms. He would have questioned the reasoning behind the action, but Kasperi had been trying to catch his attention recently, prove that he could be the son the aging king was looking for. He had to admit it was slowly beginning to work and he was seeing Kasperi in a new light, be it for good or for evil, he wasn't quite sure yet.

"Good afternoon, Kasperi." Ezekiel said, his voice sounding normal despite for the morning that he had had.

Kasperi bowed his head and set the tray down on a nearby round table that was relatively empty. "Good afternoon, Father. I brought along lunch for you and..." He trailed off, unsure of the name of the boy and he hated to use the term 'slave' so instead he simply left it to pointing at Sam before continuing with what he was saying. "I thought maybe we could share a lunch together?" He asked, giving Ezekiel a smile as he stood there, his hands clasped in front of him.

Ezekiel pulled himself up, a few joints popping and cracking in the progress, "I suppose that would be alright." He said with a roll of his shoulders and he wandered over to the table, taking one of the seats and then picking his food and drink, waiting for the other two boys to join him. The King was more interested in the food and the break from work, but it wouldn't kill him to spend maybe an hour with his son and in a way it might get Gabriel off his back.

"I-it's nice to see you, Prince Kaspari", Sam doing his best to be polite to who he assumed was a spoiled brat of a wicked Prince, the former Prince himself didn't yet understand that Kaspari was nowhere near as cold and distant as he likely appeared to be despite the look of resentment he had gotten from the freckle faced male earlier in the day. For all Sam knew, Kaspari may have been ten times worse than Ezekial when he got angry or upset, the dark bruises on his skin seeming to ache at the possibility of remaining on the Prince's bad side. Not saying much else to Kaspari as he sensed that it was best to just keep silent for now, Sam was learning quickly what it met to be a slave, even a cherished one, under the control of a King like the one only a few feet behind him, the boy still having a long way to go if he was even going to be a well-behaved pet to the aging man for what would likely be the rest of his life.

Sam trying not to make much of the tone shift he heard in Kaspari's voice when the Prince thanked him, the slave put it to the back of his mind as he sighed and went back to his spot to sit and read a book as he had been told to do, him figuring none of the food on the tray would be for him, an 'object'. The boy wanting little to do with Kaspari nor the King right now as he did remember the cold shoulder Zeke had given to the Prince earlier in the day, Sam simply wanted to sit and read his book and stay out of the way to avoid causing any more trouble. But if only it were so easy to do such a thing then maybe Sam wouldn't have wound up with bruises on his arms and chin, his luck not determined to change for the better as he noticed an ink bottle on a table near where he had been sitting had tipped over, covering an old and yellow map in a thick layer of the liquid.

'No no no! come on! why now?? why?!'

Going on pure survival intincts as he sensed that things with Zeke would go South if the King found the old map covered in black ink, Sam took his chances on hiding the parchment as he went to go and shove it into an open desk drawer under the table, his heart beating a hundred miles an hour as the few seconds it took to conceal the paper felt like an eternity to the terrified slave. A tiny blot of ink remaining on the table that Sam could only hope would remain unnoticed as he bit his tongue at the mention of him by Kaspari, the boy swiveled around in an instant as the Prince pointed to him in what Sam thought was an 'accusing manner'. Why why why had he been dumb enough to spill the ink?? He had everything in the world going for him and here he was, practically asking for Zeke to beat him into the dirt!

"It looks d-delicious, Prince Kaspari", Sam smiling small at the future King as he went to go and join by Zeke's side as he took a seat at the table, the boy was used to keeping a poker face but this was ridiculous, the feeling in his heart reminding the boy of a clock ticking back and forth endlessly, almost like the countdown to a time bomb he had been reading about in the book he had chosen earlier, "uh...If I can say it, i'm really sorry about getting off on the wrong foot earlier....".

Kasperi hated the tone on Sam's voice, a tone of being scared, of being afraid of what Ezekiel could do. He knew his father well, and just what damage the man could cause. Kasperi had his arm broken once by his father and it had taken a very long time to heal. It still hurt and often locked up from the way it was broken and the many tiny fractures webbing through his bones. He shuddered at the thought, the pain he endured a terrible memory.

The young prince turned his attention back to his father, who hadn't waited for anyone else to begin eating before digging into the sandwiches in front of him. He looked tired and worn out and Kasperi almost felt sad for the man. He worked hard, often not sleeping for days or not leaving the study to even get a breath of fresh air. He did truly care for his kingdom, and it showed greatly. Ezekiel rarely did anything for himself, the fact he had brought Sam home being the one selfish act he had done in a very long time. It seemed the man's happiness wasn't top priority for him.

Kasperi chewed on his lip, his head hanging a little before he picked up a sandwich and began to eat. Sam had gone back to the couch, leaving him slightly puzzled, but perhaps his father had given the boy a little more freedom. Good Kasperi thought, for the boy had been bruised and abused enough for the day, though he had a feeling it wouldn't be the last.

"So... have you had time to look over those reports?" Kasperi asked, dusting his hands free of crumbs. "It also seems that farmers in the southern region are having a problem with wild animals, mostly wolves and coyotes killing live stock." He spoke, sitting up in his chair politely and with respect to the aging man as he stuffed another sandwich into his mouth.

Ezekiel listened as Kasperi rambled on about things that were going on throughout the kingdom. It seemed in the end he was good for something at least, at keeping information and relying it at the proper times. He noted everything the boy sprouted, though didn't seem to give him much acknowledgment or praise for his efforts. He looked over at Sam, seeming to be more interested in the slave. "Eat, you can't not eat." He said to the former prince, his voice more quiet than it had been. Kasperi sat there, a small frown on his face as he had been kicked aside once more, though by the way Sam was shaky and nervous and afraid for his life, gave the prince a new outlook on the former prince's life and how it had all changed to the worse.

Kasperi felt bad for Sam, his heart even ached to think he was being treated like a rag doll for whatever his father wished, be it sexual, company or just as a punching bag to get rid of the days stress. He often had been beat for no real reason much alike, but he couldn't offer either of the other two things Ezekiel had been looking for. A part of him hoped his father would be happy now, lay off of him and give him more of a leash to live his life more freely, but another part made him feel guilty for the way he was thinking. He didn't want Sam to get treated badly just so Kasperi could have a chance at a normal life, but it seemed that life had different plans in motion for everyone.

He sat there twiddling his fingers, watching as Sam and Ezekiel interacted and nodded his head when Sam addressed and spoke to him. "You're welcome... though I didn't make them..." he spoke, his voice quiet and timid and much unlike how he had been acting towards Sam earlier. He didn't know how to act now, cold, harsh and rude like Ezekiel or attempt to give the boy some safe company and attention away from Ezekiel, not that they could openly be friends were it to come down to that. Ezekiel wouldn't wish his pet to be seen with anyone but himself after all. He had every single claim to the boy, owned him right down to the last strand of hair on his head.

Sam knowing that he needed to brave up and that he needed to stop being such a quivering wreck because of just the potential for trouble, the boy sucked in a breath to try and push the thought of potentially upsetting Zeke all over again as there was no use in worrying over it all. He had been through tough times before and this would be no different, bruises on his skin or not, the former Prince having a strong nature and being unwilling to give into Zeke if the man thought he was just going to be some rag doll. The same extended to Kaspari...if the actual Prince thought he would be easy to mess around with the ginger haired boy had another thing coming, Sam having often wrestled with bear cubs back home when he wandered in the woods. No, he wouldn't keep acting like some pansy who couldn't take a hit, him not feeling very hungry right now though as his mind kept returning to the thought of the damned map shoved in a drawer only a few feet away. Perhaps...just maybe, he could take it out when no one was paying attention and toss it in the bin. No one would be any the wiser, right?

Casually flipping through the book he had brought to the study, Sam tried to keep his eyes off of the too similar looking Kaspari despite his gaze occasionally meeting the male's own for a split second or two before returning downward. Yes, it most likely did make him look like some shy school boy who couldn't hold their own, but the slave's years of climbing trees in the forest and swimming the Sun Kingdom's now dried lakes had toughened him up into the equivalent of a woody, slightly muscled 'beanpole' despite his short stature. The teen only bothering to have anything to do with Zeke when he heard the King call him over and for him to eat, his eyes seeming hesitant for a second before taking a seat between Kaspari and Ezekial as his stomach seemed to growl almost on instinct, "thank you, sir". Nodding a bit as he took one of the sandwiches and took a bite, Sam was very much self-aware of the growing bruise on his chin and was happy that Kaspari had dared not point it out, hopefully somehow not even noticing it yet. Being completely unaware himself that the unfortunate Prince had often been beaten by his father on a much worse scale, Kaspari still seemed like a spoiled brat to Sam...maybe not a terrible person, but spoiled nonetheless.

Shrugging his shoulders at the fact that Kaspari said he hadn't made the lunch himself, Sam did notice the shift in the Prince's voice as he said so, the teen chewing his food slowly as he raised a brow at the royal, "and the name's Sam". Smiling slightly as he remembered how the future King had simply pointed to him earlier rather than calling him 'slave', the boy felt a warm glow in his heart with the fact that at least one person seemed to care for him enough to want to try and give him a proper title without asumptions.

Ezekiel smiled at the boy, it was a warm smile and almost felt as if there was any emotion behind it. He patted the boy on the head affectionately, as he often related his emotions through touch. Happy Ezekiel meant more cuddles and gentle touches, angry Ezekiel meant more bruises and cuts. The king returned to his food, eating the rest of it before leaning back into his seat and drinking a glass of iced tea.

Kasperi pursed his lips, a swell of emotions swirling around his chest, his heart beating a thousand miles a minute and thudding loudly within his ears. He hated seeing his father so openly giving another boy affection when all the prince had received from his father was a broken arm that he sometimes found difficult to use. He wasn't mad at Sam, it wasn't his fault he was in this situation. It was two selfish men who wanted nothing more but to make sure they were happy. Sure, Sam's father had done what most people would call a noble thing, but he was sure his son didn't view it as that and honestly Kasperi couldn't blame him. If he had been traded away for a simple resource, he'd be pretty pissed at well.

The prince sighed, finishing off his food in peace before a rap at the door caught his attention. "I'll get it." Kasperi said, his voice sounding quiet as he got up and went to the door. Opening it, he raised an eyebrow when he saw another adviser. "Yes, what is it? My father is very busy." He said, as this was something he always told people looking for his father and it had become a habit of sorts.

The adviser frowned, wringing his hands and rubbing at them nervously. "W-W-Well... Gabriel sent me about the ceremony meeting. The King is late." He said, his voice wavering and cracking.

"Oh." Kasperi said, then turned and looked at his father. "You forgot about Gabriel, didn't you?" He asked, chewing on his lip and Ezekiel went wide-eyed.

"Shit. I did. She's going to be pissed..." The aging man groaned, rubbing at his face tiredly. Gabriel was the only person to scare him, and he hated to keep her waiting. "Tell her I'll be there soon. Kasperi, keep an eye on Sam. I'll be back later." He said, getting up and dusting the crumbs from his clothes before rushing out of the room.

Kasperi turned to Sam, scratching at his head nervously. "Well. I guess it's just you and me for a bit. And it's nice to meet you, Sam." He said, bowing his head a bit. "I'm sorry... about my father being such a dick." He said, more in a whispered tone as he knew the walls had ears.

Sam feeling like some sort of dog as his head was patted by King Ezekial in an almost happy fashion, the freckle faced teen really didn't feel too much love towards the man just yet and only wanted to keep on his good side for the sake of survival as he ate his meal slowly, his true emotions towards his master not having been shown yet for the sake of common sense. After all, what would Zeke think of him if he suddenly got up and yelled every sort of insult at him for bruising his chin and arm earlier? No, it wouldn't be appropriate to tell off the King just yet, Sam waiting and biding his time as he seemed to be almost anxious about the fact that Prince Kaspari was so close, the similar looking male obviously not being keen on him being here seeing as what had happened earlier in the day. Whether it was because the Prince saw him as a threat, an obstruction to his father's love, or simply as a slave who didn't deserve Zeke's love Sam didn't know, but the boy knew he would need to be wary about how he interacted with both the Prince and his father, the idea almost seeming like some dangerous balancing act he couldn't back out of easily.

Finishing his meal just as a rap at the door alerted Sam that someone was likely coming to see them off, the boy couldn't have been more wrong as he watched Kaspari go to answer the door only to meet a rather meek and nervous looking man that claimed someone named Gabriel was waiting for Zeke to show up at some meeting. Almost being tempted to speak up and ask just what this 'meeting' was all about as he had an irresistibly curious nature at the worst times, Sam could tell by the look that fell across Zeke's face that the man likely wasn't in the mood for questioning right now, him simply raising a brow as it seemed the King was intent on treating him like a child who needed constant watch kept over them at all times.

"Hey, you know-", Attempting to speak up for once to the muscle bound fifty something as Zeke rushed out of the room, Sam was left with words stuck in his mouth along with Prince Kaspari when the room fell silent for a few awkward moments, the boy sighing rather bored as he crossed his arms over his chest and tilted his head at Kaspari in thought, "It's pretty nice to meet you too, Kaspar". Nodding slightly despite shortening the Prince's name to a more easily remembered one, Sam only glanced at the forming bruise on his arm when the royal mentioned how sorry he was about his father being kind of a jerk towards him, "I wouldn't worry about these, I had a lot worse back home. T-thanks though...you know, for caring about how he acts...".

Kasperi rubbed his arms nervously as he made his way back over to the table and a moment later sat down again. He sat there quietly as he was unsure of how to interact with people and especially didn't know how to interact with someone that looked so eerily similar to his mother. His heart ached, pangs of pain rippling through him as he was reminded of everything he had lost and reminded that his father had traded away water to replace his mother with a spitting image of her, even if he wasn't perfect. He was still close enough. He felt for Sam, but at the same time was jealous. He had his father's attention, everything he had ever wanted from Ezekiel, just to have the king notice that he was alive, yet it seemed he wasn't good enough for the aging man, the ruler of the shadow kingdom.

He nodded when Sam spoke, thoughts running through his mind and a confusion evident on his face. He still didn't understand how he was supposed to act around Sam or how to treat him. He felt bad for the boy, the bruises on his arm and chin quite clear and it looked painful in the way he had recieved them. He had known the pain of his father's anger, and it wasn't a pretty one. Kasperi chewed on his lip, his arms crossed protectively across his chest, as if keeping everything locked away and keeping his emotions at bay. The prince seemed guarded, protective over his feelings as if they were a delicate flower. He didn't wish to get to know Sam for everyone he had grown close too had just been temporary relief to his ever growing lonliness. He didn't even have a pet to console him on nights he had been left alone, perhaps even for days on end.

The prince was a broken man, his emotions askew and his heart shattered into tiny pieces he was a hard man to read, and even harder man to gain trust and grow closer too. Kasperi had been hurt too many times in the past, lead to believe one thing just to have that taken away and lies to be told. He grew a hard shell, but was still quite emotional, sometimes gulliable and even sometimes maybe trusted a little too quick. He always wanted a life change, he wanted to be happy and to lead a normal life where he had people who had wanted to be around him, and maybe even a family. Of coure he was also afraid of becoming a lot like his father, a fear enstilled inside of him and dragged him away from those hopes and dreams of maybe changing.

"Y-You're welcome... I understand how he can get..." Kasperi said meekly, though he seemed to visibly flinch wen Sam shortened his name and he looked shocked at the nickname. He wasn't used to gestures like that and it caught him by surprise. He coughed, clearing his throat. "Well... anyways..." He said, getting up and walking around a little, perhaps to clear his thoughts.

He chewed on his lip more, lost in thought before he finally thought of something. Sure, it wasn't much, and he wasn't even sure he wanted to talk to Sam long term, the pain of knowing someone, especially someone owned by his father too great, he was afraid of liking him and wishing to be friends.

"What would you like to talk about?" He finally asked, returning his gaze to Sam.

Sam never having really had a 'friend' per say seeing as he was closely guarded back home from having contact with those outside of the Kingdom, the fact that he was able to spend any time in the forest at all was a luxury that it seemed the boy had taken for granted seeing his current situation. Sure, the former Prince had often chatted with the people in the nearby villages when given the chance and sometimes spied upon his siblings talking to potential love interests, but he had never had anyone he really felt close to in his life, not even his father being terribly warm towards him. Maybe that was what had caused Sam to gravitate towards nature and its brutal but begrudging acceptance of all that could take on its risks and rewards. Now that the ginger-haired boy was out of his element he felt vulnerable and exposed, especially by the way King Ezekial had manhandled him so roughly earlier, his own instincts having told him to freeze up rather than fight back as he should have done...yes, freezing up might have worked with a bear or wild pig, but this wasn't the wild anymore and Sam wasn't in danger from some creature that didn't know its own power....he was simply a slave to a King who saw him as some sort of physical and mental replacement for his beloved late wife.

Sam watching Prince Kaspari with a small smile though despite all this, the young looking slave, albeit for a seventeen-year-old, didn't seem to see any problem in calling the royal man 'Kaspar', it seeming like a fun little nick-name he could attach to the similar looking male at will. Of course, the unfortunate boy didn't realize just how much serious trouble this could get him into with say, King Ezekial if he decided to begin calling the aging man 'muscle man', the thought having crossed the boy's mind once or twice to try and get a small out of the stoic royal. All Sam wished to do was get close to someone, anyone, in this new Kingdom he was to call home and giving small names like 'Kaspar' seemed to be the perfect way for the boy to break the ice now that Zeke was out of the picture for a while.

"It's alright, I'll deal with it", Nodding once as he noticed the meek look on Kaspari's face when the male acknowledged that he knew how the King could get, Sam tilted his head a bit curious as it seemed the Prince was more nervous than he was himself about being left alone with a near stranger, the thought having never crossed the ginger's mind that a royal, someone of high blood, could be nervous about talking to someone 'lower' than they were. The boy having his own nervous problems though as he blushed slightly and looked at his feet a bit when Kaspari returned his gaze, Sam sucked in a breath of air as there were many, many things he wanted to talk about that probably would never get a straight answer, such as why his own Kingdom had run out of water and why he had been chosen as some sort of pawn in all this nonsense, and why Zeke had thought it appropriate to take a not yet of age boy as some kind of 'call boy'. Keeping his mouth shut on asking these though as he instead smiled cheekily and leaned his head on the table, Sam laughed a little as he felt confident that at least some sort of friendship could be forged with this apparent lackluster future King.

"Well, I would like to know more about this land of Shadows, so why don't you tell me about it? I don't think your father will give me much info even on his deathbed and i'm dying to know if its really as dangerous as they say".
