“It is impossible that this king doesn’t have a weakness” I snapped at Ian making Kiara jump at my sudden loud tone. I knew that she didn’t like yelling, but this man was getting on my nerves. We have been trying to find something to kill him with, anything to reverse the spell. But nothing was working.
“He is your twin Niklaus” Ian reasoned and I glared at him. Kiara took my hand in hers and intertwined our fingers seeing how tense I was.
“Screw the bloody day that I was born with that thing called a man” I said angrily.
“Why not try to find the witch who put the spell on him in the first place?” Kiara asked slowly.
“Tried that Queen Kiara, the woman has been killed a long time ago. Verone feared her trying to break the spell. Therefore, he killed her long before she tried anything” Ian said answering Kiara.
“But why would a witch make a spell on a man to
Kiara:“ALL HAIL QUEEN KIARA!”I walked out the door as Lorenzo announced my arrival to the guests who attended the gathering that we were having. Grace was already with the guests who stood up and bowed to me when the announcement was made. I smiled and nodded at the to rise before going to sit in my place beside Grace. The ball was enchanted to bring out couches where the ladies were to sit. However, these couches would be disappearing when the ball officially began.Fixing the dress I was wearing as to make sure that it wasn’t wrinkled, the dress was royal green. My sleeves reached my elbows as my chest and collarbone were exposed. The dress reached my knees and I wore stockings beneath it covering my exposed legs. A simple crystal necklace hung from my neck reaching my breasts. It was one that Niklaus made for me, specifically for this ball. He urged me not to take it off even when I would be going to Lorenzo and Giovani, I didn’t que
Niklaus:“I see that your mate left” Rosetta said when she caught sight of me. I raised an eyebrow at her when I entered the ballroom and her blue eyes met my own, she looped my arm with hers when she saw me approach her “aren’t you going to greet me, my king?”“I can tell that you’re still as observant as you always were” I said glaring at Rosetta who rolled her eyes on me, she smiled at the guests who were leaving. Their eyes looking at our joined hands for a second before they bowed and walked out of the ballroom fearing me noticing their eyes.“Do you really believe that she’s safe because you made her leave the palace Niklaus?” Rosetta asked making me frown in confusion, I could tell that her tone was nowhere near being normal. I glared at the woman whose lips twitched up as she tried fighting back a smile “have you already forgotten who I am and what I’m capable of?”
Kiara:“Baby girl, you need to sit down” Niklaus whispered to me and I shook my head at him pacing around the people who were in need, everything was a mess. The people who have managed to escape the terrifying events that happened were either coming to their senses after the shock they’ve been through or healing using vampire blood. The people were petrified and despite not wanting to show it, I was too, and I was well aware that my husband could feel it too.Everyone around us has lost their homes, most of them have lost their families and loved ones. I couldn’t handle the situation that we were put in, what I saw, the people’s screams and cries filled my ears and the vision of the fire haunted my mind the second I closed my eyes. Niklaus has been watching me for the past hour trying to stop me, but all his tries went in vain. I needed to keep myself distracted before everything that happened hit me. As I knew that this was no time or pl
Niklaus:“Did she speak?” I asked Lorenzo who had just sucked Rosetta dry.He was in charge of this task after his brother’s death, knowing that nothing would avenge him for the death of his brother except this. I assigned him to do this, he knew that Verone’s death would be on my hands, as I couldn’t give him that, I offered to allow him to kill the one person who Verone would die for, and though Lorenzo was initially against it. He was not one to lay his finger on a woman, he knew that this was the closest thing to killing Verone that there was.“Not a word. I’ve killed her twenty-eight times already, the woman just keeps coming back to life and says nothing as she smiles and waits to see what I have on my sleeve for her. She would taunt for a while, but she knows the fate that would hit her eventually” Lorenzo said and I nodded looking at Rosetta who was coming back to life once again, this time the woman seemed
Kiara:“Klaus, there’s no way…”“Kiara, please don’t argue with me this time. Go back to the human kingdom. It is a lot safer for you there…”“Klaus, no. I won’t leave you…”“Kiara, this is life or death. You are with child and I will not be able to focus with you here…” Klaus cupped my cheeks and kissed me gently “Caspian, Lorenzo, guard her with your life. I will come and get her when everything is done”My eyes widened when I saw that he had put the teleportation amulet around my neck and having ordered it to take us away, the amulet started glowing making me shake my head. I watched as my love ran out the window before everything blurred and I was suddenly in the middle of the palace’s throne room. Mother’s eyes widened when she saw me and my hands shook in fear. Father was nowhere to be seen.“Kiara?” Mother
Klaus:I glared at the man, my brother, who stood beside the dragon. His eyes amused as he watched the people flee, fear could be seen in their eyes, expressions, and even their body languages. Never had I imagined seeing my brother being this evil. Growing up, the man had the heart of an angel. I will admit that we have been harmed, the humans have not left us alone for years. But that didn’t mean that we had darkened, the man’s heart completely died and he had lost all senses of humanity.Having sent my mate to the human world. I feared what was to come, and I knew that there was no way for me to handle it if anything happened to her, nor would I be able to focus knowing that she could be in danger at any given moment. At least in the palace, having Lorenzo and Caspian by her side, I would know that she would be somewhat safer than she would ever be here in the kingdom, even if she was with the bastard she called a father.“I see that your pe
Kiara:I never understood what my parents feared when they said that the world outside the palace was a dangerous place. I always wanted to go out and explore. I hated being locked in the palace for years. Well, at least until I saw what I have today.To say that getting mother out of the palace was hard wouldn’t be an understatement. However, I wouldn’t lie when I say that us leaving the palace didn’t seem like the best idea at the moment. People were on the verge of eating one another, literally.How it happened was something that I couldn’t understand. I knew that the kingdom had its issues when I was here. However, I never expected to see what I was seeing today, nor did I expect to see the terror that I was currently witnessing.It was like poverty had spread all around the kingdom, and now all they saw and wanted was to kill one another for the smallest loaf of bread. Had Caspian not stopped four of them, they would’ve
Klaus:I tightened my arms around my wife who stirred in her sleep as she got another nightmare.It’s been the case since we finished the war. She’s been too shaken up about it to even speak of what happened, but I could easily read her mind and see what she saw.The visions that were in front of her made her feel like everything she chose to believe in as she grew up was a lie. The fact that she had sent Lorenzo to kill her father didn’t go unknown or unspoken of, which made their already broken relationship hit an all time low this time. The queen refused to look at Kiara, even when she learned of her daughter’s pregnancy, the queen had refused to come and be by her side.Now my wife was in her last month. It’s been three months since we found out of the pregnancy, and with her carrying a hybrid child inside her, the pregnancy was a lot faster than most. But that only meant consequence…With my wife’s we
