Her hair was pinned nicely behind her back before the diamond tiara on her head.
“It’s time, they are waiting.”
Talia was escorted out of the changing and straight to the hall where she found her nanaba looking gorgeous as always.
“You look beautiful, my child,” she said kissing her cheeks.
“Thank you, nanaba.”
“Let’s go inside, a lot of people are waiting.”
“Let’s get this over with.”
Her nanaba took her arm in hers and the doors opened. The orchestra was playing the wedding march while she walked down the aisle. Her husband Neal was standing in the front in a gorgeous black tuxedo. He was a very handsome man indeed. Her nanaba handed her over to Neal who took her hand and the two faced the Arch Bishop.
They took their vows in front of everyone in the modern way and exchanged the wedding bands.
“I now pronounce you husband and wife, prin
The chariot passed through many roads and from time to time they waved until they reached the palace. At the place their bags were already packed and the car was waiting.The car took them to the airport where the royal jet was waiting for them. After settling the jet was airborne. Because she was tired, she just closed her eyes forgetting that she had not eaten anything and slept.She had another dream again. She saw the silver haired lady again, holding the seven-gem bead bracelet in her left hand and using her right hand to touch people.She could see and hear their thoughts, their pasts and future. It was as if the bracelet was a guide that helped her to maneuver well. The woman kept doing that to people and telling them words that brought them hope and it was beautiful.She avoided telling them the sad parts and tells them how to avoid some calamities too. If her gift was the same as the silver haired lady then she really had a huge job to do.
“I have never done this before,” Talia confessed as she stood right in front of him after their romantic dinner in the royal villa, they were residing in for their one-week honey moon.He could tell she was scared and innocent. He had only slept with one woman and now he had to consummate his marriage or else all hell will break loose. Talia was likeable and he had no doubt she would be just the right one for him now.Neal titled her chin up and gazed into those emerald green eyes.“You don’t know have to know how to do anything,” he said sliding his and along her jaw and down her throat, where he could feel the wild beat of her pulse. Her heart raced, drumming through his fingernails.“I know what to do, this is my job,” he reassured her.Dipping his head, he kissed the side of her neck, her jaw and then the corner of her lips. Her lower lip quivered and he kissed the quiver.Talia shivered as Neal
He didn’t any words but she linked her hands behind his neck and draws his face down to hers. He kissed her hard, deeply, passionately, kissing her until she shivered and danced beneath him. He moved her legs, his thighs inside hers, and as he stretched over her, she felt the tip of his erection nudge her.“I don’t want to hurt you,” he whispered, kissing the side of her neck, and then her throat and back to her lips.“It won’t always hurt, will it?” she asked barely able to concentrate on what she was asking when his hands were on her breasts and his palms rubbed slowly across her nipples.“No,” he answered, dropping his head to suck one peaked nipple even as he positioned his shaft at the entrance of her body.He kissed her again on the lips and deepened the kiss as he entered her slowly. Fortunately, her body was wet and welcoming and only once did the pressure became too much. She pressed at his ch
He immediately carried her out of the tub. She was bleeding and seemed to have fallen in the tub. Not waiting for an ambulance, he put a gown on her and drove her immediately to the nearest hospital where she got admitted immediately. After some minutes the doctor came out.“She is fine but has a concussion. After some rest she will be fine.”“Is she awake?”“That’s the problem, everything seems to be fine but she is just not waking up. She is responding, I guess she might be stressed.”“Can I go in and see her now?”“Yes, you can.”Neal went inside the room and saw Talia lying there as if she was sleeping. Did she overhead his conversation with Chloe earlier and ended up like this? Because he was panicking, he called back home. His mother was even more furious and told him that their doctor would be arriving and then they were returning back to Qarth.He stayed in her
Neal left Talia with his mother and the first place he went was the bar. He took out a beer and gulped it down as fast as he could. Who did he marry? What was going on? If that was what she was capable of when she was just angry, what more would she do in the future?He was doomed and didn’t know what to do at all. Drowning himself in alcohol as his wife was lying on the bed, his honeymoon interrupted and all the drama, he just wanted the earth to swallow him.“I knew I could find you here,” Jane one of the long serving maids of the palace said.“What do you want? Did my mother send you?”“No, she didn’t but I’m here to tell you about Talia.”“Is there something more I need to know apart from what I have seen already?”“There is a lot you don’t know and I will tell you all bout so that you won’t regret it.”“Okay, I’m all ears. Tell m
“Priestess, please come in,” he said and offered her a seat but she kept standing.“I can tell you are worried but it’s okay. Everything seems to be ready now, soon she will be awakening but there are a few things you need to bear in mind before she does.”“I think I heard enough of it.”“It’s not what you heard but something else different.”“Tell me.”“Rules are rules and we have to abide by them. The royal tailor department received orders already so don’t panic. When she woke up, she won’t be able to dress like any usual lady out there but she must wear what her predecessors used to wear.”“And what is that exactly?”“You know our traditional attires, right?”“Yes, I do.”“She will wear that and don’t worry she will remain beautiful regardless of her hair. Most seers didn&rsq
He smiled at her while taking the towel from the rail.“I love it; you are still the Talia I married. You are still weak; you have been sleeping for so long. Let me help you, there is no need to be shy especially when I have seen and touched every single part of you.”“I didn’t know you were this vulgar,” she retaliated.Neal still helped her take a bath and he was very gentle. After her bath he put the towel on her and carried her out of the tub to the bedroom.“You didn’t have to,” she said.“I should. I missed you.’“I missed you too. You look very clam though. Don’t you find me weird at all?”“I did back then but now I’m used to it. You are still you despite the changes.”“You know about it?”“Yes, I do and it’s new but I like it.”“You like it that I have silver hair and I can do
She walked to where her father in law was seated and she took his hand in hers. She closed her eyes, her left hand playing with her beads as usual and began to concentrate on his life.Damn this man had too many secrets, painful ones and interesting ones. He had so many things that were just being a burden and needed to be said out for him to have peace. She didn’t want to divulge further so she let his hand go.“My King, you should tell her. If you don’t do that, she will never know how you feel about her and that might cause you to drift away from each other? To you it may not be a secret but you know exactly what’s happening and just pour your heart out. It was just a mistake and if you are sincere, she will see it.”“You are really genuine?”“I’m afraid so. As for the other matter, I think you should not rush. I see the people of out kingdom crying because of it. Wait and delay as much as you can a
