I looked between Lorenzo, the guard who has been by my side for years now, Giovani, who didn’t seem phased by what his partner has done, King Niklaus who kept his eyes on me, as if the fallen body meant nothing, then at Emily, who was dead, right before my eyes, with a hole in her chest, her heart thrown by her side as Lorenzo tossed it on the ground, my hands shaking at the sight and my heart racing in fear as I fought myself not to run away from what I had just witnessed.
“Why?” I asked, it was the only word I could voice out without throwing up, the sight being frightening to me as it was the first time I’ve seen something this barbaric in my life, not even animalistic, an animal would never be pulling a heart out and shoving to the side this coldly, none of them seeming worried or frightened by what had happened a mere few minutes ago.
“She has hurt you badly, betrayed your trust in her, and told your parents on you despi
Klaus:I watched as my mate stood frozen while everyone bowed to her, her cheeks turning crimson as she didn’t know what to do or who stood in front of her, but little did she know was that she was going to be the queen of everyone who was in this room, that she was going to be loved and respected by everyone, and that no one was ever going to treat her unjustly.Everyone rose and lifted their eyes to look at the beauty who was to be my wife, having no jewels on her but the bracelet I gave her, and the ball gown which she was wearing made her look even more special in my eyes as it gave her a natural glow of being her own self rather than whatever she was wearing, and I smiled loving how flustered she seemed as she didn’t know what to do, despite her being a princess, she was not used to being around a big crowd who respected her deeply, but everyone who meant anything has heard of my beauty.“Welcome to the kingdom princess” Madeline, ou
Kiara:I opened my eyes to the sound of a bird chirping on my window.It took me a few seconds to register where I was when I realized that this was not my chamber back home and that I had left the palace last night.My eyes widened when I realized that my mother had lost her child and I had left her alone to deal with whatever wrath father was going to throw her way, only to remember that I was exiled by my father because mother had lost the baby in the first place, the look mother had given me as if silently begging me to leave the castle and free myself from the prison I was living in.I was lost of words at everything that had happened last night that I didn’t notice the door to my chamber being gently opened and a girl who looked like a maid, slowly walked in to I’m assuming wake me.The girl froze at the sight of me awake and sitting with my back leaning against the headrest as I was lost in thought, my fingers fiddling with the d
Klaus:I sat in the dining room waiting for my mate to join me for breakfast, knowing that Anastasia went to wake her up a while ago, the butler poured my coffee inside my mug when the door opened revealing my mate.Her blue dress hugging her features perfectly, revealing just the right amount of skin, exposing her collarbone and arms, the dress was tight around her waist and loose around her hips reaching her knee, the bracelet I gave her was the only jewel she was wearing making me smile that she had not taken it off, her hair was left in its natural curls, making her look even more beautiful than she already was.“Good morning love” I said standing up and walking over to her, taking her hand in mine and bringing it to my lips, kissing her knuckle softly, my eyes meeting hers as I did to see a blush make its way to her cheeks making me smile as I pulled away.“Good morning your highness” she smiled but I raised an eyebrow at her
Kiara:I stood in front of the chamber door unsure how I even managed to enter.My mind on the kiss Niklaus and I just shared, how his lips were pressed against my own, his gentleness, the way he held me close, it felt like my body was begging me for more, to just run into his arms and feel him, hold him close for a little while longer.I was so lost in my thoughts that I didn’t even notice Anastasia and Jasmine, the other maid who had helped me shower and choose my clothing this morning, staring at me with wide eyes, their smiles on their faces telling me that they saw just how flustered I was, but who would be blaming me? I just lost my first kiss to the hybrid king, right in front of my chamber’s door.“Princess, would you like us to get you something to drink?” Anastasia asked cutting my train of thoughts short, distracting me from losing my own self-control and heading to the king once more, just to feel his touch against me o
Klaus:“What do you mean that the human bastard wants to speak to me?” I asked Ian, my younger brother who had come to pay me a visit this morning, King Leonardo had dared call for my brother to speak to me, my eyes flaring as I looked at my younger brother who shook his head at me wanting me to calm down and listen to him before getting angrier than necessary, which was not possible when that thing, well king, was mentioned, the vision of him raising his hand on my mate still fresh in my brain, especially since it had been only two nights ago.“He called for me yesterday, he wants to speak to you for some reason” Ian said, his blue eyes meeting mine, he ran his fingers through his black hair as he saw my angered expression, though he didn’t seem phased by it as he knew that it wasn’t directed to him, he was simply delivering a message while that king had the nerve to even think that I would be looking his way, he was lucky that I ha
Kiara:I walked toward my classes with Anastasia and Jasmine following close behind, having taken history, and languages first, learning all about the different languages of the realm as it turns out that each creature had its own language, the history of the different kings and queens who have ruled the magic world, against or alongside humans, the deals that were made, the betrayals too.My mind wondering back to Klaus who was probably seeing my father in his throne room right now, I was curious to know what he wanted, why he had contacted Prince Ian, especially since he was the one who asked me to leave the kingdom, claiming that if he ever saw me, that my life would be taken by his own hands, therefor for him to be here after putting that threat out was confusing and just sounded wrong, well that is of course unless someone had died.Had something happened to mother?The thought alone forced me to stop my track as I was walking following a guard who w
Klaus:“Mother was never pregnant, was she?” I looked at my mate with wide eyes as she looked at her father, her back to me as she glared at him, my eyes met Ian’s he shook his head motioning for me to calm down, though I was confused on what she meant as she seemed to speak with so much confidence that I knew that whatever she was saying wasn’t just some lucky guess, her heart racing as she stood before the man who has hurt her throughout her whole life.“Of course, she was princess, you saw her losing the child right before your eyes” King Leonardo said looking at Kiara, though his eyes were now frightened as if he was just caught, I looked at Ian who seemed to be on the verge of slitting the king’s throat, though I could tell that he was trying to keep himself composed, King Leonardo’s heart was racing against his ribcage as if threatening to get out of his chest and run.“You’re a bloody prick&rdquo
Kiara:I woke up in my chamber, my mind feeling like it weighed a ton after what had happened, I was sure that I looked like a disaster too, I didn’t even need to look at myself in the mirror to know that my eyes would be having dark circles under them and that my face would be pale from crying and lack of food, remembering how Klaus had held me in his arms as I sobbed, not even complaining about the fact that I had probably soaked his shirt, or the fact that I was fisting his shirt, he just held me, kissing the crown of my head every few minutes, soothing me with gentle words, I couldn’t help but feel grateful for him being there as I recalled the memory.I sat down, rubbing my tired eyes, resting my head on the headboard, and looked at the blinds which were closed, slowly getting out of bed to open them wanting to see the sky in front of me, the moon and stars always had a calming effect on me back home, I was sure that they’d be having the same eff
