It’s been years since anyone has seen or heard of the hybrid king that they began to believe that he had lost hope in the girl being born.
King Leonardo and his wife, Queen Annalise had made sure to be careful about who entered the palace and who didn’t, making sure to hide their daughter from all eyes, in fear that the hybrid might hear of her being born.
The beautiful princess grew as years went by, and she grew more curious with every passing day, she wanted to learn what was beyond these palace walls, why she was never allowed to go out to the palace garden unescorted when it was simply their home, but of course she got no answer, no one would even look at her to explain what was going on, why they were hiding her, and what they were hiding her from, not that she expected them to anyway, she was far used to being ignored by her family by now.
“One day, I will learn what is beyond these walls, and when that day comes, no one is going to stop me” the eighteen-year-old said looking out the window, her eyes looking at the city lights which shone from her window.
“How about I be the one to show you?” A familiar deep male’s voice asked her, his voice making goosebumps rise all over her body, she had only heard his voice in her dreams, she often thought that she was imagining it, maybe she was, as whenever she looked back to find out where the sound came from, there was no one in her chamber, but her veranda’s door was always open after it happened.
This time however she found a note on her bed, she frowned in confusion as she looked around the room wanting to know where the note had come from, her maids were out the door and no one had knocked the door or entered, which only seemed to worry her more.
Putting the note under the pillow and walking to the door, she knocked it twice, her maid, Emily, opened the door, her eyes looking at the princess with worry as she was awake at this time in the first place, but the princess couldn’t bring herself to sleep.
“Emily, has anyone entered my chamber?” The princess asked slowly, the maid frowned, her brown eyes scanning the room as she looked at the princess shaking her head.
“No Princess Kiara, is everything alright?” Emily asked.
“Everything is fine, I just thought I heard something” Princess Kiara said quickly, Emily nodded looking at the veranda door which was wide open letting a breeze enter the chamber, it cooled the chamber ever so slightly, but the princess didn’t mind.
Emily entered the chamber and Princess Kiara quickly looked at her bed to check that the note was properly hidden before looking at Emily who was closing the door of the veranda, then the blinds not allowing the moonlight to illuminate the chamber.
“Get some rest princess, it is already late” Emily said and Princess Kiara nodded not saying a word as she watched Emily walk out of her chamber before she rushed toward her bed and turned on a little nightlight to read what was written on the small note.
She looked at the handwriting and smiled admiring the small cursive letters, carefully written making her smile at the beautiful handwriting.
-Soon love, I will be the one to make you explore the world, just a little more patience.
She read the note over and over again, checking if it were signed, but it wasn’t, whoever had sent it meant for his identity to remain a secret, nonetheless the princess smiled and nodded walking toward the fireplace and throwing the note in the fire watching as it burned, it was better this way, at least she wouldn’t be worrying about getting caught by anyone about the subject.
“I will be waiting for you, whoever you are” the princess promised looking at the fireplace not knowing that she was being watched from the small crack of her veranda’s door.
“I will be counting on that love”
Kiara:“Princess, you know the rules” mother said looking at me, I sighed, despite it being against the rules as well, a princess was never allowed to sigh.“Mother! I am eighteen, I can’t stay locked up forever” I said getting frustrated, it was impossible how they thought that locking me up was okay, my curly brown hair bouncing as I walked behind her in her study, our emerald green eyes met and she shook her head wanting me to stop with the subject, but I wasn’t going to, not until I at least got what I wanted this time.“Kiara, no” mother said sternly.“Mother, please” I begged looking her in the eye “Lorenzo will be with me, and as will Giovanni, why won’t you allow it?”“It is not safe for you out there!” Mother snapped before pinching the bridge of her nose and composing herself and taking a deep breath looking at me, my eyes wide as I stared at her, co
Kiara:I ran out of the palace as fast as I could, though I was careful not to be seen.The door however, was a little rusty and was a little hard to unlatch, but I luckily managed to do it without opening it too wide, slipping out of it, then closing it enough for me to reopen when I needed to go back before running out as fast and as far as I could.It took a while, but I was suddenly met by the city lights which made me smile as I saw everything around me up close, I had always seen them from my chamber’s window, but never in front of me.I didn’t realize that I was standing in the middle of the road until a car honked its horn at me causing me to jump in fright and blush at the man who was driving, he shook his head at me and I quickly walked to the side walk and smiled as I watched the beautiful night sky, the lights, the different shops, couples, everything seemed surreal that I feared waking up in the palace, and this being nothing but
Klaus:I watched as my future wife, mate, ran out of her palace as fast as she could and smiled.It took her long enough to do it in the first place as I had expected her to run away a long time ago, but then again, she was still too young and innocent for that kind of thing.She stood in the middle of the road admiring the view of the stars and the moon in the night sky, something that she did back when she was in her chamber, therefor to see everything she was seeing right now up-close only made her smile.I walked toward the bakery which was on the side of the road and noticed that they were making a fresh batch of dessert, I looked at my mate once again before vampire speeding toward the bakery and looking at the man who smiled upon seeing me clearly not noticing that I vampire sped toward his door.“Good evening sir” he smiled at me.“Good evening” I smiled back, I looked at my mate once more to find a car honkin
Kiara: I woke up with a smile on my face. I was in my chamber. Tucked in bed. In my jeans and black long-sleeved shirt. Hold on… What? “Princess, it’s time to wake up” I heard Emily walk inside my chamber, I tucked myself under the blanket hiding my outfit only for my eyes to widen when I saw a paper beside me under the blanket, the same familiar cursive writing on it catching my eyes. “Princess?” Emily asked looking at me tucked under the blanket, I quickly grabbed the small paper and hid it in one of the pants pockets before muttering sleepily. “Just ten more minutes Emily” I said as I usually did, I knew that she’d walk out as she always did when I asked for them, they usually came to wake me ten to fifteen minutes earlier than I was supposed to be up anyway. My smile widened when I heard the door close as Emily walked out and I untucked myself from under the blanket to open the note, biting my bottom
Kiara:The best part about going to a ball was getting ready for it, note the heavy sarcasm, which of course mother would be scolding me for if she heard me, but luckily, she can’t read my mind.At least I hope she can’t.Anyway, back to subject, I had been trying on dresses since eleven in the morning, settling for a cream ball gown, chiffon covered the whole dress giving it a beautiful bridal texture as the sleeves which were draped around my upper arms, though keeping my neck, collarbones, chest, and arms exposed, tight around the waist and then it would loosen all the way to the ground.The heels I chose for the evening were matching beige heels, though they wouldn’t be visible under the long dress, I still had to choose them carefully as my feet may be exposed for whatever reason that may occur and I had to be at my best appearance.Taylor was making my hair, fixing its natural curls into more defined ones as she insisted tha
Kiara:“PRINCESS KIARA OF PATRAVIA!”They announced my arrival to the ball, and I stood at the top of the stairs, standing elegantly as I eyed the guests carefully, Patravia, the kingdom where I have grown my whole life, but never had the chance to visit or see.It was odd thinking about it, I read about my kingdom all the time, but had it not been going out two nights ago, I would’ve never had the chance to visit the kingdom, and see what it really was, how the people were, and who they were, in my eyes, only the palace servants and other royalties existed, I’ve never seen any commoners, well, that changed now, but of course no one here knew that.I went down slowly, careful not to trip on my heels, and also giving the ones who were watching a show, I had been trained how to go up and down these stairs so many times, how fast I was supposed to go, where I was to look, which was in front of me, no matter who stood from the guests,
Klaus:I looked at the guests who lowered their gazes when they met my intense one, not caring that they had nothing to do with the princess being upset or hurt, just the fact that they saw what they did, the way they did annoyed me, and I made sure to show it.I followed the princess’s scent and heartbeat out of the ball room to find her in the hall close to the door as she wiped her eyes from the tears that fell out of them, slowly making my way toward her, not wanting to frighten or annoy her more than she probably was, I slowly took her hand in mine stopping her from wiping her tears and doing it myself, she involuntarily leaned in to my touch, her body taking over her senses before her mind could process the mating pull.“I apologize for what happened” I said honestly, my eyes meeting hers in a soft gaze, her once emerald green eyes now bloodshot red from crying, I didn’t like the sight, it had my wolf howling as my fangs and canines
Klaus:I froze as I looked at the king who dared speak to my mate the way he was, not only has he been abusing her both physically and mentally, I did not want to believe that he would be using her sexually, as I was hoping that he wasn’t or else that would force one huge problem between the two of us, as I would not rest, regardless what the princess would say, until I had his life.“Need I ask what the princess has done to be exiled?” Prince Caspian, the man who was supposed to be her husband, asked, it didn’t please me that he was the one to ask, but he was right, the princess had done nothing to be put in such a situation.“You will not be questioning my decisions Prince Caspian”“The princess is my fiancé and wife to be King Leonardo”“I believe that the agreement, which you have clearly heard yourself little prince, clearly stated that the princess would be MY wife when she reaches
