Autumn and Helia both slowly woke up on the ship.
"Helia, where are we?" Autumn asked. You could hear the fear in her voice.
"I... I dont know..." Helia said, just before a guard walked in. He bowed.
"Prince Helia" He nodded. He walked past him to Autumn and grabbed her arm. He roughly pulled her up and began to shove her out of the room.
"What do you think you're doing? Put your PRINCESS down now." Helia said.
"But I have orders, and I have to follow them. I'm sorry, your highness, but the King and queen come first." He said, shoving her roughly out of the room.
He handcuffed Autumn and took her into the dungeon. She had never been down there, and she didnt like it one bit. She walked past cells with things like monsters and the deadliest of criminals she hadnt seen in ages. He walked her over to a cell with just one guy in it. He looked pretty normal, with brown hair that went just past his ears, and a figure similar to Helia's. he sat on the ground, looking miserable. He looked so familiar... The guard opened up the cell and threw Autumn in, she landed roughly on the floor, and a searing pain shot through her right side. The guard slammed the bars shut, locked them, and went upstairs.
"Autumn?" The guy asked. She turned, and it clicked. She knew exactly who he was.
"Julien?" She asked. "How did you get in here?"
"They just put me in here. A separate ship took me after they took you and Helia." He explained.
"But why would they want you?" She asked
"Because I've been through the same things as you have. You see-" He started, but was interrupted when the door opened and slammed and someone walked up and unlocked the cage, throwing the door open. Staring down at them was none other than the King and Queen, smirking evilly. The King roughly grabbed Autumn and forced her to stand up. The pain in her right side was too much to handle, and she fell back down again. Julien shoved the King away from him and gently picked Autumn up. He followed them upstairs and into the trono room.
"Now, shall we begin?" The King asked. Without an answer, he walked over to where Julien was standing and grabbed Autumn from him. He slammed her into a wall, sending another searing pain through her side. She cried out in pain and clutched her ribs. Julien couldnt take it. He grabbed the King and slammed him into the mural seguinte to where Autumn was as she fell to the ground. Julien punched the King repeatedly as hard as he could until the king grabbed his neck and punched him, sending him to the ground. He leaned down and punched Autumn a few times before picking her up and slamming her onto the ground. por then Julien had gotten up and grabbed the King once again.
"Autumn, defend yourself!!" He said. Autumn blasted the King and queen away and put strong chains on them. After making sure they were secured, Julien reached down and helped Autumn stand, putting her arm around his shoulder and putting his arm around her waist.
"So, what were you saying back in the dungeon?" Autumn asked.
"Well, our parents have been keeping this from you for a long time, but Helia knows. I'm your brother, Autumn." Julien said. "Ive gotten these same beatings all my life, and have watched them give them to you as well. Now we need to go get Helia out of that ship."
Autumn was speechless. "W... What? But... Well... I guess... Lets go..." Autumn stuttered. Right at that moment, Helia walked up behind them and engulfed them in a hug. As they were talking about their family, there was a huge explosion and a hole in the wall. All of the Winx and Specialists walked into the castle. Ike ran up and gave them a hug, as did Flora and everyone else. They were all talking happily when disaster struck. The King stood behind eveyone and chained them to the wall. They must have gotten out of the chains somehow. The queen walked over to Flora.
"Helia, is this you girlfriend?" She asked.
"Ew. You need to find someone else, because she is not princess material."
Helia was speechless, so Autumn spoke up.
"Who are you to judge his girlfriend after all you do to his siblings? After all, you dont seem too throne-worthy either." Autumn said in disbelief. The King angrily walked up to her and grabbed her head.
"If you open that stupid mouth of yours once more, all i have to do is one quick motion and youre out of the picture." He growled. Before he walked back to the queen, he punched her face so hard it echoed through the room. Helia's feet were free, as were everyone else's, so he swiftly kicked the King in the face. Nabu cast a spell to weaken the chains until they snapped. They all began to fight until they saw the queen summon two blasts and hit Helia and Autumn dead-on. They both went completely limp and fell to the ground. Tecna swiftly typed something on her computer.
"She cast some kind of spell that put them into a deep sleep, and there is only one cure but only one person knows about it, and we dont know who that is." She said urgently. Julien grabbed Autumn and shook her shoulders violently. Ike pulled him off, and he walked over to the mural and punched a hole in it, enraged. What they didnt realize, is that the King and queen got away...
