< Serena >
I wasted my time worrying about our sharing of a room when it turned out, my new husband had another plan in mind. In the middle of the celebration, I saw him leave in a hurry and this was after he called a blue-haired man, his second-in-command maybe, and conversed through whispers.
I cared less what they were talking about. Anyway, I couldn't hear a word they said because of the noise inside the throne room. A little later after he vanished, men in lavish suits—the royal council—as far as I know, stood up and left the party.
I recognized them in a gathering I attended a day earlier with Elijah. That gathering was weird in a way. It was held in the highest mountain in the kingdom, over a stretch of grassy clearing a kilometre away from the castle. There were a lot of attendees. I say tens of thousands probably. The same as in the wedding.
< Aero >I didn't know what came over me. I felt a burning desire I had never felt before in my entire life. A burning desire to possess a woman. And not just any woman.Serena.I couldn't get her out of my head despite trying to: her brown, wavy hair, her hazel eyes, her rosy cheeks, her overall bearing and of course, her lips—those pale pink flesh that I had tasted during our wedding.Being a woman, I should be loathing everything about her, but I found myself leaning in another direction.Fuck.I grabbed the chalice on the table filled with my favorite wine straight from Hest, the realm of magical creatures. The grapes in their kingdom were the best, and it was known far and wide. Trying to contain the woman's thoughts from taking over my control, my grip of the chalice tightened and consequently, it dented.&
< Serena >I didn’t need a translator to tell me what the wolf wanted to do. I mean come on, what else would we be doing in the bed other than... It was crazy of me to even think such. That would be beastiality and obviously gross.But of course, the wolf could always turn back into its human form like those ones I saw in Teen Wolf and would have me come face to face with my new husband and his uhm...naked form.Technically, if this was a real wedding, we’d already be exercising our husband and wife rights, but this was far than real. He couldn’t possibly be wanting to do that now when he strongly expressed his dislike on women a day ago.What changed?But as I waited, he didn’t change into his human form. He just snapped at me and continued pointing to his king-sized bed with his snout.Truthfully, I loved how his wolf looked. Sure it still scared me, bu
< Aero >Despite calling it back, my wolf stayed on the surface, deeply focused on its intent to ravish the woman. I felt its need on her... Its hunger... Its craving... Its intention to strip her naked and give her the best fucking a woman could get. I tried hard to ignore those thoughts, but we were one. I felt it too, burning me, coaxing me to give in.But I was as hardheaded as my wolf was. I didn't relent to its temptation."I thought you hate women," she voiced out; her eyes a look of betrayal and hurt. “Did you change your mind?"Her words somehow got me big time. It stung but I was grateful she reminded me about that.I had always believed that anger and hate could always surpass any other emotion. Luckily, it was the exact case for me now. I used my anger to gain back control of my person and easily my wolf was suppressed. Under the cover of the mist, I transformed into my human form.
< Serena >A month had passed since my still unexplained travel to a different realm. Because of that experience, my perspective in life had changed. I saw the world on a grander scale now and I saw myself in it like an ant, so small and insignificant yet essential.I also saw werewolf shows in televisions quite funny. Their version of the beast didn't do justice at all to the real deal. But of course, I could be biased. Aero was royalty after all, and a king no less, so his wolf was expected to be magnificent.These thirty days hadn't been easy for me. I thought I'd come to think of my experience as only a dream but day by day, the memories of Phanteon and especially of its King haunted me. The castle, the manor, the wedding, the kiss, and the King's face were vivid still.The subject of my dreams were him. Always him. Worse, it was that kind of dream one could only see in erotic movies:
< Serena >A bright flash of light welcomed me at the end of the portal. I winced and in reflex, used my hand to cover my eyes. When the bright light faded, I adjusted myself to the surroundings and saw where I was.I was in a cave and the biggest I had been in my entire life. The stalagmites and stalactites were colossal. There was a narrow river a few paces behind me and the water was running into a darkened path. In front of me was an altar of some sort with lots of incense burning that my nostrils didn't particularly like."Look what we have here," someone said nearby. It was from a man's, and I wouldn't have known him to be short and stout if he didn't step into the light with me.I furrowed my brows, confused with what was happening. The environment itself made me nervous, but I tried to calm myself. It was the only way since I basically entered the portal without thinking of the co
< Serena >Vampires.They were just myths playing a man's mind, romanticized by writers and overused by television shows in my world. But after spending time in Phanteon and actually seeing a real werewolf, I knew better now that vampires really exist too and my best guess was, I am in their realm.I was never a fan of vampires. The gore, the blood, the fangs, the sleeping in the coffin and all that creepy turning into a bat stuff. I wished they were all just creations of a writer’s mind to keep readers on their toes. However, judging from my situation and the other women with me in this room, I was beginning to think otherwise. After all, why kidnap human females if not for their blood right?I felt the color drain my face as reality hit me and soon, my eyes brimmed with tears. However, I wasn't a crier. I had never been one, so I held it back. Now was not the time
< Aero >Since that woman's return to the human realm, I thought I'd be relieved of my problems. However, it actually worsened.First, my council kept on fishing out information from me, asking where the queen was.Second, since my alibi was that we were on the so-called traditional 'saricsa' or honeymoon on Earth terms and that I didn't want her to get out of our bedroom, my council had been bugging me about pups. Lots and lots of them. Quadruplets if possible for her first pregnancy. I had to scowl at them and change the topic instead.Third, were my dreams. Not only was the council been bothering me about her, but my dreams too. They were nightmares if you ask me. I couldn't get a good night's sleep. Her face, her smile, everything about her were the constant subject inside my head. Now when I really did get a good sleep, it was after I get dreams of her and me consummating our marriag
< Serena >I was inside a grandiose bedroom, alone and not so surprised why I was separated from the other women with me. They thought me a royal after all and all royals get to have better treatment. It seems Earth and the other realms didn’t differ in this aspect.However, I would have preferred to be with the others, give them comfort maybe and at the same time gather intel. They might have an idea who had just purchased us.I honestly thought my plan would work. Well, it would have worked out if it wasn't for that so-called master the butler was referring to. I saw the look of distress in Manross's and the auctioneer's eyes. They looked uncomfortable for a brief moment and then easily, they submitted."I will allow His Grace's request, but let all vampires before me bear witness to this event. I will wash my hands of any responsibilities and of any consequences that would arise betwee
