Aidan puts back his swords inside its scabbard and took off his thick fur cape that he was wearing to cover Eve. The enemies were growling loudly, anger and frustration laced their voice seeing a lot of them were killed while the Khiones was barely wounded. All the ivory hair creature stare at them and it pisses King Adam off to see the smugness in their face. Anger almost push him to attack the ice king once more but even he knows that fighting a being with a goddess blood would be a funeral.
While Adam was being treated in another room, Eve sat on her parent's bed with her mother sitting next to her while her father walking back and forth inside the room. She was scared of what he was going to say. It worries her that he would take back his decree. Queen Aaliyah bruhs her arm to calm he rdown. “You are sure this is what you want, Eve? To be with this man, forever?” His father’s voice cut the silence of the room. “Yes, father. That is all I ever want. I love him. He means the world to me.” Eve answered King Aidan confidently. The concern is etched on his face when Eve says tha
Stepping into the town of Dzhimara, home of the wolves was very overwhelming for Eve. So many mixed emotions can be felt when facing them but she remains strong to face whatever reaction presented towards her but she had never expect a reaction so negative and angry form the crowds. Eve still smile though, nervously to the crowd the whole time but her smile drops seeing some of the crowds had a disgust look towards her. Some of them was snickering at her while some left looking annoyed. It was still a large crowd but most of them was human. Her heart drops and she look down. Adam seems to be super excited about the wedding so much that as soon as they have arrived a week ago, he ordered his servants to prepare for the wedding as soon as possible. The royal throne room was decorated with so many red flowers, red curtains which bring color to the dark walls of the castle. Eve has already established that these people are obsessed with the color black and red. These colors are so intimidating and that’s how the wolves want to present themselves. Powerful and fearless. The huge room for the ceremony was able to fit thousand
Scars is Also Beautiful *Edited* CHAPTER 10 : STILL, SHE MARRIES HIM
Adam seems to be super excited about the wedding so much that as soon as they have arrived a week ago, he ordered his servants to prepare for the wedding as soon as possible. The royal throne room was decorated with so many red flowers, red curtains which bring color to the dark walls of the castle. Eve has already established that these people are obsessed with the color black and red. These colors are so intimidating and that’s how the wolves want to present themselves. Powerful and fearless.

Eve days went by quite fast and within a week of being married, she was the happiest she could be. She spends most of her time with Adam in their room. Every moment with him was precious and he made sure that it would be memorable every time he made love to her and treated her like a queen. She never wanted that moment to end but as King and Queen of one of the strongest nations in Afhrin, royal duties never end and they had to cut their honeymoon short. Not that Adam would complain as he always makes up all of his lost time at night when they reach their bedroom. He was insatiable for sure but she loves it when he practically worships her. His words, not hers.
Eve seems to enjoy her time learning and understanding Dzhimara with Ariadne by her side. She is always cheerful and helpful. It was clear that Ariadne adores Eve and she felt the same way too. It helps seeing Eve wasn’t well accepted by most wolves yet. It was a dreadful day when Eve decided to visit the town of Dzhimara without Adam for he was busy. She decided to visit there secretly but was accompanied by Khalid, Damien, and Ariadne. They were in disguise to avoid too much attention. Eve was amazed at how different the town was from Zhatiera. Zhatiera was a landfill with snow so every street would be drowned in it and being a Zhatierian that she was, the cold weather never
Eve was walking in the hallway when Nika suddenly shows up in front of her. She looks upsets and when she suddenly pulled her hand, Khalid and Damien’s body becomes tense. Eve’s as well. “Oh, Eve. My dear sister. I am so sorry for what had happen. I heard that you were hurt when you visit the town. I wish I could do something to help. Are you alright?” Eve was looking at her with disbelief. Was her ear right? Did she just act like she wasn’t at the town yesterday? Was it her imagination seeing Nika at the corner of the tea shop, handing bags of coins
That night, Eve sits on a chair which she pulls closer to the fireplace. Being a Zhatierians, heat was never a necessity but the warmth of the fire makes her feel at peace. When the door slams open behind her, she turns to see Adam walking unsteadily with Niko and Damien carrying him. Adam’s face was flushed and he was grunting in a low voice. Eve sigh and helped him to his bed. After they both left looking worried, she gently changes his cloth and wipe his face with a small clean towel. She showers him with love and places a small kiss on his forehead. It hurts when he was mean to her earlier but seeing how handsome and precious he was, she could not find the urge to be angry anymore and slowly re
That night, Eve brought Marion to the forest to bury her. She was sobbing and the sound that came from her lips tore Khalid, Ariadne, and Damien’s hearts. The same sadness can be seen in Khalid’s eyes. Even though he tries to stand still and be brave, his eyes were red, and tears pool inside them. Damien too shares the same emotion they all have. Eve was pouring a jug of water with daisies and what is left of Marion’s feathers she could find in the kitchen. Some of it was thrown out by the cooks. Her left cheek was swollen and painful to touch and a cut formed on her lips from Adam’s wrath. Marion’s grave is now frozen solid, just like how every fallen Zhatiera would be buried.
