PAINS MADE HIM CRUEL...
Lara stretched out her hands happily, feeling the cool Breeze.She has never been this happy.
She smiled and walked around the village with Kali, her Personal maid.Seems you're good mood today, your Highness. She said and smile.
Yes, Kali. Am very happy. Princess Lara said.May I know why? She pressed further.
Am just happy today Kali, there must not be a reason . She replied with a shrug.You don't want to tell me. Huh! She pouted.
You don't need to know, Kali. Lara chuckled.Okay, should I guess. Am good at guessing your Highness. Kali said.
Okay, go on. Lara said.There is a bench over there, let's sit down your Highness. Kali said and the both went to sit.
So, am guessing you're happy because, the King slept in your Chamber yesterday. Kali said and Lara's cheek reddened.
Ohh, Kali what's your Problem. She whispered.
My Princess, your cheek.... Your blushing hard. Kali giggled and Lara covered her face.You know Princess, I mistakenly entered your room this morning. Kali said and Lara gasp.
What did you see? Lara asked with widened eyes.
I saw so many things, then I ran out.You were both engrossed in what you were doing, that you didn't even notice someone was there. Kali said and Lara blushed the more.
Ohh, heavens. Kali.... She giggled.
Lara loved Kali more than a Mistress would love her slave. She was like Sister to her.
Kali, tell me more about the King and how his Parents died. Princess Lara said.But, my Princess. It is...
I won't say a thing Kali, I promise. Lara assured her.Okay.
Long time ago, when King Nicklaus was still a boy. He was thirteen. He loved flowers, but most especially music. He loved music and his Mom would always sing for him.
His father built a garden for him, where he planted different flowers. His father was a great King. He loved his people so much.
But then, one night while celebrating King Nicklaus's birthday. Armed men entered the palace and shot the King and Queen right before him in the garden where he cherished the most.
He became Cruel, fill with rage. He has never smiled, neither has he laughed. People still wonder if he could ever change.
That's it, your Highness. Kali said and looked up...My Princess, you're crying. She said and cleaned up her face.
That was so touching, Imagine the pain he goes through each night. Princess Lara said sniffing.
If that was his past,she should make sure his future is filled with happiness.
Thank you Kali. She said and got up.I think we should head to the palace now. Princess Lara said walking away...
*****Beth was taking a stroll around the Palace when she sighed the Princess..
Time to introduce myself. She said and walked towards the Princess.Your Highness. She said and bowed to Lara.
Who are you? Lara asked.Am Beth, a friend to King Nicklaus.Ohh, am Princess Lara. Lara said.
Nice to meet you Princess, I'll get going now. Beth said and walked away...
Princess Lara stood there staring at Beth, as she walked away. Something about her is off. She thought and proceeded to the King's Chambers...
*Somewhere in another kingdom*
Your Highness, you sent for me. Marcel knelt down to the King.Yes, cause I have a Job for you
Three years ago, the Kingdom of Athopa invaded our land, killed our people and destroyed our infants.It's time to pay back. King Leon said.
Your Highness, the kingdom of Athopa is mightly guided, we can't go against them. Marcel said lowering his gaze.
King Nicklaus never surrenders and we might get caught on the way, it's a deadly act to go to war with this people. He said again.
No... My informant said there has been peace in the Palace of Athopa. He said King Nicklaus has grown soft. King Leon said.S..soft, No my King maybe this informant lied. It's a trap. Marcel said shaking.
He knows King Nicklaus, he can never be defeated. He will kill them all.We will match to Athopa and we will conquer. King Leon said and got up.
Summon the troop, call the armies. We will march to Athopa next week. The King said again...
Your wish is my command. Marcel said and stood up.This is a dead sentence. He thought.
* In the Kingdom of Athopa*Lara walked in to the King's room, her eyes searched his face. He's handsome. She thought.
She wondered why she hasn't checked him out ever since, maybe her hatred for him covered his face.
Hey. She called softly.Do you sleep at all Nicklaus, because all you do is read and write scrolls. She said and sat next to him.
I don't sleep, unless forced to do so. He said still writing his scrolls.But lately, ever since you showed up. Have been sleeping well without Nightmare. So I'll ask again Lara. What are you doing to me? He asked and met her gaze.
What do you think. She said grinning.Am just making sure, you lose your Sanity to me. Then your life. She teased and he scoffed.
You think you can kill me. He said staring at her.Don't dare me Nicklaus, am crazy. She said again..
Silence came, the whole Palace was quiet. The Birds did their chirping, the trees rustle by the sides.
And then, she remembered the girl she met outside.Who is Beth? She asked and his face changed to a frown.
It's okay, if you don't wanna talk about her, I was just asking. She said and feigned a smile.
She was the girl, the Royal Court wanted me to marry. He said after a brief silence.Her throat dried, she never expected this answer. He looked up and stared at her.
Why didn't you marry? She found herself asking.Because, I didn't like her. She isn't fit to be a Queen. He said and she looked up.
So, do you like me? She asked.I loved you, ever since the day I met you. He groaned and her eye widened...
I don't understand. Which day was that? She asked her voice laced with curiosity.

Followed me there? Why? She asked perturbed. Because you.... FLASHBACKThe drums were heard, flutes played and the Kings of each clan walked in.King Nicklaus hated parties, festivals, anything that included music. He hated it after that night.But he had no choice, it was a tradition that all King's must be present. He walked in and sat on his seat. The festival continued with more music and dancing.He got up and walked outside, he hated the

She said pouting and he chuckled.He chuckled.. He just chuckled. She almost yelled.You just chuckled? She said more like a statement. So what, chuckling is a crime? He asked.No, never thought cold guy could chuckle. She said giggling. Cold guy, Huh?? He said.Yeah, you're too cold. Warm up already. She said pouting again.Okay, I'll try. He said.You.... You'll try. She yelled stuttering.So? He asked.Nothing, am going to the village tommorow. Are you coming? She asked.No, I'll be busy. He said shaking his head.You'll be busy, please Nicklaus. Don't you wanna feel the ev
Written by Evelyn Mba ©®©® The weather remained bright, giving colors to the beautiful flowers that stood on the way. Making Lara smiled the more. What a day!!She walked and stopped, glancing at the man by her side. His face masked with an unreadable expression, his two hands curled backward. He just walked along not making a sound. Kali, be careful there. Lara yelled as Kali ran and grabbed her hand. Princess, if you keep walking this way. Am afraid we won't make it to the waterfall. Kali said and dragged Lara's hand. Kali had forgotten, they weren't alone. The King was with them. Kali, look back. Lara whispered to her maid. Oh my.. Kali gasped in dear, she forgot about the King. He was with them, all this time.He will surely punish her. Slowly, she let go of Lara's hand, watching as the King got closer to them. Why did we stop?Aren't we headed to the wa
Written by Evelyn Mba ©®©® HE ISN'T READY **Somewhere in another Kingdom** Call me Marcel. King Leon said rubbing his forehead. He has been working tirelessly, preparing for the war. You called for me, Your Majesty. Marcel said and bowed. Marcel, how's the preparation? He asked. What preparation, Sire? Marcel asked. For war with the Kingdom of Athopa? He asked again. It's... It's, uhm Your Majesty. They people are scared, they women are afraid to let their husband go to this war. It's a death sentence, they said. Hmph, what should we do? King Leon asked.But Your Majesty. History and gossips has it that, it wasn't the Kingdom of Athopa who invaded us. It was other neighbouring village. Lies, it's all lies. King Leon rasped. Those are rumors, it was the Kingdom of Athopa who did it.Our informant said so. He said again But, Y
Chapter 15 Written by Evelyn Mba ©™©® THE SPY The wind blew harder, the water came out from the rock heavily. Night was fast approaching. Kali, it's night already. Lara said stretching her body. But we just got here. Kali pouted. You think so, it has been five hours already Kali. Lara said. We can stay for some minutes. King Nicklaus said.What. Lara gasped loudly. Yeeeee... Kali giggled.Nicklaus, are you sure? Lara asked worriedly. Leaving the Palace for too long, don't you think your throne might be stole. She teased. Hmph. He scoffed. Only People who love death would try such stunts. He said. Uhhh... Cold guy, you'll be surprise one day. Seems like....Shhhh... Keep quiet. Someone is watching us. King Nicklaus said. His brows knitted to a frown, his fist clenched. His body stiffened. Gosh, he was pissed.Pis

The weather changed, the morning atmosphere relaxed.The breeze soothed the skin. King Nicklaus body dance in pleasure.The woman is definitely changing him. Cold shivers run through Lara's spin as his lips claimed hers again. He was gentle but yet demanding. God, how can this man turn her on with just a kiss. She thought. You are doing things to me Lara, things I hate. But I can't seem to resist you. He groaned giving her wet kisses on her neck. So, I'll ask again.What are you doing to me?

Princess Lara yawned, waking up from sleep.The night had been a long one, memories flushed in and she smiled. She remembered how he kissed her.How his words, heated her body up. How much she longed for him so much.... Someone's happy today. Kali said walking to Lara. Oh.. Kali, am really happy. Lara said blushing. I can see it Princess.

Written by Evelyn Mba****This is bad, this man is not supposed to be seen here. Hilina said as she took slow trembling steps to Beth's room.What is it, walk faster. I don't have time for all these. He yelled and she increased her pace.Finally, she got there.Whew, that was really close. She whispered to herself.Your Majesty, he's here. She said and the door opened.Come in. Beth said.He took steady steps, and finally his eyes met hers. Desire.... No lust flashed in his eyes. He was quick to hide it.But she saw it.Hmph. She muttered.What a man.
