The Dragon palace was massive with beautiful landscape of ancient designs, the magnetic aura haven't dim a little even as decades washed over it, Lady Salsa was astonished and breath stolen of how big and huge it was...
It wasn't long when they all arrived at the south palace where the king received visitors, Queen Tekiya and kunshiya kun sat majestically on the throne when the imperial guards led Lady Salsa and her eggs in...
"Long live, My King and My Queen" they all bowed down in greetings
" ease" Kunshiya commanded gently at the audience, the imperial guards then signaled for the left guard to bring forth the eggs.. the eggs were magnificent, round and beautiful... Kunshiya stared at them in awe
"My hatchlings!! Quick bring them to me" he ordered thunderously with happiness shown in his fine jade face... his hands brushed over them lightly as he inspected the eggs with keen eyes
" they are beautiful!! my hatchlings"! Kunshiya marveled after inspecting the two eggs
"My order, Lady Salsa is to conferred the title "Dragon Lady" and the second rank lady, arrange her to live at the west palace with her hatchlings" Kunshiya edict as the king's Eunuch quickly commands servants to prepare the order...
Queen Tekiya was utterly surprised and angered at how kunshiya kun could simply just give the second ranked noble title to the outside slut, The second rank lady was just a rank away from her title, who did that slut think she is? Because she laid some imperial eggs means she can climb up ranks? What imperial eggs? What hatchlings? Since they are in this imperial palace, this Queen will make sure they didn't witness the first sun .. Queen Tekiya vowed inwardly as she stared at the eggs in Kunshiya Kun's hands
Kariya tugged Lady Salsa softy on her sleeves to remind her to accept the imperial decree, the slight tug brought Lady Salsa back from her astonishment as she quickly knelt down and give her thanks
" humble Lady Salsa accept Dragon king grace, may you live thousand years"
Kunshiya smiled as he noticed how clumsy her greeting was but took no offense to it as he knew she's not from this country nor adhere to their ways but Queen Tekiya took the opportunity to oppose and ridicule Lady Salsa
"Dragon Lady Salsa, it can't be that you are an uncultured dragon from nowhere because that's the only explanation to this awkward acceptance you just presented" She said, her voice laced with mockery
" Forgive me My Queen, This humble lady is not from this country, that's why I didn't know of the ways of greetings and acceptance "
" you even dare talk back to you Queen!!" Queen Tekiya roared, servants take her down she ordered as numerous servants rushed to Lady Salsa's sides and forced her to kneel, Kunshiya kun wanted to interfere but he knew if he showed Queen Tekiya his affection for Lady Salsa that will only give Tekiya more reasons to exploit and manipulate Lady Sals and her hatchlings, though he doesn't really care much of the foreign servant but she just gave him eggs and the imperial hatchlings are more important than her safety..... so he let the servants dragged her to the prison, later he will command her to be released but for now she needs to get used to the palace rules and etiquette as fast as possible
Queen Tekiya was happy when she saw no reactions from Kunshiya Kun, that only means he doesn't care for that slut, once the slut is out of the way, she will deal with her eggs.....
The prison was full of dragon scales and teeth, it was a very dim and brooding room, Lady Salsa two handmaiden inspected the prison they were thrown into and felt wronged in their mind, their displeasure was written brightly on their face" kariya, shadia!, you don't have to feel wronged for this Lady" Queen Tekiya was just emphasizing her right and teaching me the right cause" Lady Salsa said to the two young girls besides her" but my lady ain't she too cruel? This is just your first day of arrival, we haven't even settle in" Shadia said full of contempt"Keep your voice down, don't forget the walls have ears" Kariya scowled her"But ..but" she pouted angrily" it's okay Shadia, we will soon be out" Lady Salsa said to them to ease their wronged and fret heartMy eggs! Will Queen Tekiya harm them, lady Salsa knew she ain't much of importance to Kunshiya kun and he wouldn't side her nor make things better for her but
Queen Tekiya waited in her palace graciously for the good news while she sipped her fresh wine with her scornful face,"My queen, The prison sent news, there was death but it's not of Lady Salsa" the servant replied bowing"You mean that outside slut managed to escape my plot!" Queen Tekiya roared and threw the glass at her, freshly made red wine poured like blood on the royal floor," I'm sorry my Queen""Get out !!, take her out and beat her to death" Queen Tekiya retorted angrily, the servant shivered and bowed their heads, no one could breath probably because they are afraid that Queen Tekiya might took offense, at that very moment they all held their breath and kept their head bowed in fear,For the next two days, Queen Tekiya was still very paranoid and angry any single mistake of any servants, she will ordered them beaten to death, to the point everyone was now beseeching curses at Lady Salsa for not dying.Meanwhile in th
It was buzzing and ceremonial all over the city as the first full moon first of the year annual festival is coming up, foreigners are seen coming in while indigenes were preparing for the festival, the first full moon festival is one of the most celebrated festival in the kingdom because dragons get the chance to meet their beloved and confessed their love, under the full moon there's no pretense because the moon will trigger the love within and make you to be sincere at that particular moment, so dragons preferred to confess their feeling at that particular day, young dragon girls and boys who haven't gotten a beloved yet always listened eagerly when their parents explained the importance of the festival, most boys would have already prepared and memorized their love essay before the full moon, it was the same particular day some decades ago when the dragon king imperial mother died, since then he was always grumpy and moody on that particular day, it just two
When Kunshiya Kun came back later in the night, Lady Salsa was already fast asleep on the couch, He picked her up and laid her on the bed, moonlight shone brightly on her jade like face, her brows and lashes were so beautiful, he couldn't help but traced it with his finger, what a pity she would have to go for their hatchlings to come to the world, will the eggs share resemblance with her? Kunshiya kun thought, when he was growing up his Queen mother always narrates how his father laid down his life for him as his progenitor, that was why he could be as powerful as he is, and it wasn't only because of that, it was also because his father couldn't watch his beloved Queen die before him, so he volunteered to be the progenitor, but him Kunshiya kun will never love any woman to that extreme, he lacked father's role in his life, he will never allow his hatchlings to go through that same torment, from today onward he will give Salsa anything he wants, and shower her with any gifts u
After so much thoughts Queen Tekiya ordered her best men to destroy the two eggs, the astronomer doesn't clarify which one exactly will be the kukulkan, so they have to take precautions against the two, when the ordered assassins got to the incubator, they saw one egg close to the lake while the other egg was buried deep under the ground, their first thought was to destroy the one under the ground first them go destroy the second one, immediately they brought out the one deep under the ground, the chief assassinator saw the uniqueness and said this must really be the kukulkan, for it was green in color and it's aura was so powerful, the only way to destroy this kind of eggs is to put it in a stream or a lake, Yes, a lake is right here !! The chief assassinator then ordered his men to pick up the unsheathed egg and drop it into the lake with the other egg, immediately the green egg touched the lake, it released a very dreadful and powerful aura that blew all the
..What!!!! Who dare!!" Kunshiya kun roared, who dare hurt my eggs!! Kunshiya kun changed to his dragon form and flew to the cave but what was left of the cave was mere ashes, he changed back and went to the cave but it was ruined and disfigured, he saw his chief steward's body flowing down the ice lake, but what was in his mind at the moment was his beloved hatchling, then he saw the dragon egg, very black in-color and void of all soul.... wasn't this the same egg he heated yesterday? Wasn't this the same egg that looked so gigantic and beautiful yesterday, he cried woefully as he moved closer to the black egg , his hands stroked the eggs and he could sense it soul leaving the egg, his hatchling is really dead... he doesn't mind! He would have welcome it and loved it more than anything, he doesn't care if it was the future kukulkan, it was his hatchling for crying out loud!! Anyone who did this will not go scot free!! He vowed"Send
It's been two days after the death of one of the royal hatchlings, the relationship between The dragon king and lady Salsa became so strained and void, the lady lost all coloring and always look defeated, she stopped doing all her daily routine, she only sleeps and and cry... Tekiya was bewildered, she doesn't know how to console her lady."My lady, don't cry anymore, your health matters" kariya said the hundredth time but Lady Salsa only wailed softly into the now mucus ridden pillow.."My lady, let me get you a new pillow" kariya said as she eyed the pillow her lady had been clinging on since morning, when she didn't receive any complaint from Lady Salsa, she made her exit from the bedroom, on getting to the pavilion, she met the dragon king with his entourages coming in."Your Majesty" she bowed in greetings"How's your mistress?, is she still crying""Reporting to your majesty, Lady Salsa has been bedridden for the past two days, she neit
.."Tell the general to bring him to me" Kunshiya kun fumed angrily. At his order, the message was passed down to the general immediately, the general only thought he was suspicion because of his newly scarred cheeks and dirty cloth, the suspect haven't acknowledged whether he's guilty or not and there's no evidence to prove it, he can only respect his King's order.Unknowingly to the general, the suspect companions had found out that he has been taken and they've reported it to their instigator, and Queen Tekiya already gave an order to make sure he died tight lipped, on the general way to the palace, the general was attacked and waylaid by so many assassins as they tried to fight him off and kidnap the suspect, on the battle field in their dragon form, they threw fire and and slayed one another with claws and teeth, the general's dragon was one of the best dragon and he easily fought of many assassins on his own, The general identity took them by surprise as
