I remain in the room, the pain coming and going and I didn’t think I would make it down the stairs even if I wanted to. Getting up, I head for the shower, the pain intensifying and now spreading around my entire lower belly. My mind only able to focus on the pain as I try and breathe through it as I clutch on to the taps, making me cry out as an agonised noise rips from my lips.
Silas walks in staring at me from next to the sink basin. “I am sending for them, hopefully they are already on the way” He says, and I nod. He walks out and I hear the door shut as the pain subsides and I get out again intending to go ask Silas to get Abbie. Silas walking in, as I am trying to get my shirt on as pain has he me doubling over clutching onto the side of the bed to stop my legs from going out from under me.
Silas POVI nearly ruined everything, and now I can’t face her. Too scared to even go near them so instead I go to the stables to finish the cradle Dragus had made. Putting another coat of lacquer on it, by the time the sun was up I was finished, and Peter was walking in to tend to the horses. Peter noticing me walks over to see what I am doing.“Congrats daddio” He says smacking my back.“Thanks” I tell him though I don’t know much else to say when I can’t even be in the same room as them.“What’s up?” He asks.“Nothing, can you grab the other end so we can put it out in the sun to kill the fumes” Peter nods walking to the other end and carefully grabbing. I could have carried it but was worried I would break it if
Elora’s POVI hadn’t seen Silas since I gave birth, he had been avoiding me like the plague. Even to see his son, Matitus has always brought our baby to him then brought him back. He hasn’t been sleeping in the room, only in the cold room downstairs. Even when he and Dragus brought the cot in, he only came in while I was in the shower and left before I got out. It had been a week and I hadn’t laid eyes on him.Getting ready for bed Dragus and Matitus passed out straight away, they had been doing all the night feeds using expressed milk. So tonight I decided I would do them, to let them get some sleep, not that I got much even when they were doing the feeds, I couldn’t sleep knowing he was awake, couldn’t stay asleep when I could hear him crying. Then the worst part was getting up panicked just to check he was still breathing, p
Elora’s POVI woke to Matitus picking me up. “Go back to sleep love I got you” He says but I sit up wide awake from being woken. I looked frantically around for my son only to see Silas getting up off the floor with him cradle in his arms still asleep.I slump back against Matitus watching Silas follow us upstairs when I hear the castle door open, Abbie walking in with the documents she said she would bring. Matitus sets me down on the ground and Silas continues upstairs.“I have some things to do but Dragus is in the room waiting for you” Matitus says pecking my lips and leaving. Abbie follows me upstairs, Silas leaving the room as I step inside. I grab his arm stopping him.“Where are you going?” I ask.“To help Matitus with something. I will be back soon” He says kissing me be
Elora POVFor the first time since he was born, Darshan slept through the night, so waking up the next morning I felt wide awake for the first time in ages. Getting dressed after hopping out of the shower I find him gone from his cradle. My heart skipping a beat as I race downstairs finding no sign of him or my mates. Running into Pluto who was leaving the castle carrying a huge box of coloured lights I stop him.“Do you know where everyone went?”“Greenhouses my Queen” He answers, and I nod following after him. Opening the castle door and walking out, I find the entire court lined with around ten huge tables running down toward the gates and one sitting across the front. The tables all decorated in white linen and rose vases in the middle. People setting up a stage next to the water fountain that was covered in a huge sheet making me furrow my brows a
Elora POVAround 12 o’clock I got dressed, slipping on a gown that Silas had laid out for me.“Is there a reason I am getting this dressed up?” I ask when I see Silas come out of the walk-in in a suit making words escape me. Matitus and Dragus also stepping out in suits.“Well you are our Queen and it is a formal function so that means the kings and Queen need to be dressed proper, you only have to wear it till after the ceremony, then you can put your tights back on” Matitus says.“Ceremony?”“Yes Elora, this is a ceremony”“What sort of ceremony?” when I see Darshan also dressed up as Dragus gets him from the cot.“Well it is actually two ceremonies, one was a last minute decision”
Elora POVThe next morning, I wake deciding to go have a shower while everyone is still asleep and finally be able to shave my goddamn legs. I quietly and gently climb over the limbs that were threatening to trap me in the bed before rushing to the bathroom and closing the door.I turn the shower on and strip off before grabbing a razor from under the sink, the ring on my finger catching the light as I reach for the box. Grabbing the razor, I step in the shower wishing we had a bathtub in this house. I lather up my leg and start shaving, it felt like forever ago that I actually had the shower to myself and I enjoyed hogging all the water. I shave one leg before moving onto the other when I feel hands grip my hips as someone slides into the shower behind me, their erection pressing against my ass.“I was enjoying being in here without having to share the water” I tell Silas as he pres
Epilogue4 years laterSitting on Matitus lap, I watch Dragus, Silas and Dakari chase around after Darshan and Carly and Claire in the paddock. Darshan chasing after Silas, his silver Dragon chasing and biting at his father’s ankles has he chased after them.Abbie sits down next to me rubbing her growing baby bump. Matitus kissing my shoulder as we sit in the sun.“One more please just one more and we will stop hounding you, Abbie is having her third” Matitus says. I shake my head.“Definitely not” I tell him watching Carly and Darshan play.“Yeah you need to have another, gotta catch up to me” Says Abbie.“You would not say that if Carly had a dragon, seriously we have a fire extinguishers in every room because every time you tell him no, he sets our asses on fire” I tell her. Darshan first shifted when he was thr
