Part 3: Cursed Prince (Book 2 of the Asteria Series)
Pairings: Sudo
Summary: When a freak storm blows in out of nowhere and his horse throws him, lowly Prince Joonmyun is left outside a lavish mansion with a bruised pride and a twisted wrist. Surely you're not supposed to listen to disembodied voices in an enchanted mansion...
Word Count:580

Hidden behind a shelf in the dark room, Joonmyun takes the opportunity to catch his breath and calm his rapidly beating heart.

He can hear the thumping footsteps of the monster outside the door.

Joonmyun sinks against the wall and sighs to himself.

Why me?

He freezes when the footsteps outside pause.

The door creaks open and Joonmyun stops breathing, pressing himself as tightly behind the shelf as he possibly can.

He squeezes his eyes shut and listens.

The footsteps never come.

He hears the door click shut and internally releases a breath.

Just when he thinks he is safe, a large paw closes itself around his throat and grips tight.

" Found you. "

Joonmyun screams and struggles when the beast lifts him from his hiding place and pins him against the wall.

The paw around his neck tightens until he can feel the pinpricks of the sharp claws pressing unrelentingly against his skin.

He chokes and writhes, body squirming against the tight hold.


He gasps, hands grasping helplessly at the large paws around his neck.

The beast growls and leans closer, his grip tightening ever so slightly.

Joonmyun wheezes and gasps, pain rushing through his injured wrist.

"One chance. Tell me my history as I have forgotten. Get it wrong and I will tear out your throat."

The beast threatens, its breath washing so close to Joonmyun's neck.

Joonmyun gasps and struggles to recall a story, any story that had involved a beast.

The claws tighten, slowly but surely cutting off his air supply.
They press painfully against the tender skin of his neck, little drops of crimson blood beading to the surface.

A face swims into view, a face that seems painfully familiar.

A story, published in the magical news reports.

The cry of anguish over a lost lover.

They all come swimming back to him now as his strength wanes.

"You... You weren't always like this! A man. No! A prince. You were human. As human as I...I am. You aren't yourself... P... Please!! Beast, lost love, rejected a wizard or something. No... Wait.. Please... Arrogant bastard... I...I can't. Your face.."

Joonmyun rasps, his vision blurring as he choked and gasped for air.

"Dyo family!" He cries, his mind full of that one face that had haunted him from the time he had seen it.

"The only son... Kyung...something... Kyungsoo.. I don't know. Kyungsoo!"

The claws crush painfully close, blood trickling from the pin size wounds.

The beast howls, the sound filling the empty room.

"What have you done?!"

Surprise flashes across its features when the fur on its arm split, shedding onto the floor to reveal human skin, pink and raw.

The fur across the beast starts to shed and its features contort.

Joonmyun stares, dazed as the sharp claws sinking into the flesh as the hand curling around his throat smooth over into human skin and fingers.

The beast starts to shrink, releasing Joonmyun as it presses its hands to its face, screaming in pain.

Joonmyun remains pressed against the wall as the man-beast shrinks to be shorter than even him, fur falling off to reveal a naked man.

A very attractive naked man.


The man raises his head from his hands, staring at him in wonder.

Joonmyun stares right back.

"Kyung...soo?" He asks, still dazed.

The man rises to his full height, which isn't much to be honest, a smile spreading across his face.


Joonmyun smiles back faintly before everything went dark.
