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
She saw the look on the driver’s face and she smiled immediately.“I know what you are thinking but I’m not a fake. I don’t have time to go through all the staff backgrounds. I can look at you and see what I want to see. I will give you the gift, when you return back to your house tonight bring your wife a bouquet of her favorite flowers and that mint chocolate she always loves.Lay with your wife and I believe that your prayers will be answered. Just do it even if you don’t believe. I will buy you the flowers myself,” she said and closed her eyes.What she had realized during the time her ancestor was teaching her was the ability to grant people’s wishes as long they were for the greater good. There was no kingdom to protect if they were no families to begin with.Finally, she arrived at the mall and like always it was crowded. How was she supposed to walk freely there? The moment the driver opened her door she s
Even after her near death encounter Neal never bothered to look for her until she confronted him. That was the day she realized that Neal had known about the affair all along and he was just waiting silently. He was a very cold and ruthless man.She watched as Neal married that Talia in such a grand manner that it became a great talk everywhere. She couldn’t stop going to school after it or else she will just kill herself. She had to be strong and face it head on.He was harsh on her all the time. He stopped talking to her and Ben but he never insulted the two of them or confronted them at all.She even called him when he was on his honeymoon and the same day Talia got sick. She thought that maybe the girl will die since she wasn’t waking up and she will get her chance back but she never expected that Talia woke up a week later and even stranger.There were a lot of talks among the people regarding what she had become after she woke up but she
“Mother, how have you been?”“I am great dear. I’m glad you came early, I have something for you,” the Queen said.She followed the queen to the salon room where she found a nice white and sky-blue attire hanged on the hanger. Of course, it was meant for her, no one in the whole of Qarth dressed like her unless they wanted to.“Thank you, it’s beautiful,” she said touching it.“I knew you would like it. Wear this when the party starts.”“I will thank you.”“I should be the one thanking you.”“Why would you do that?”“My husband told me a lot of things after you left. He never opened his heart before the way he did. I’m grateful to you that I now know his feelings towards me.”“He loves you anyone can tell.”“Sometimes we just want to hear the words.”“Yes, we do. I
“You will have to ask him that yourself,” Talia answered.“How can you be so rude?”“You are the one I should be asking that. Not only did you come to disturb me but you want to throw away things that don’t belong to you. How can you be so greedy?” she asked.“You are the one that is greedy. You took away my man, everything you took. Do you even know what his favorite color is or food?”“Does it even matter? I don’t care about all that. What matters at the end of the day is he is mine; he shares the same bed with me and I’m his wife and you are not.”“How dare you?” Chloe screamed at her but got choked.“I told you not to touch that,” Talia said looking at the beads.“I will throw them out and vent my anger at you,” she said and really threw them away.She couldn’t believe the guts of Chloe but there was
“You don’t have to do that.”“Please mother. She will never do that again. I promise, can I please have a moment with her alone? I will be there with you shortly,” she said and Neal looked at her.He looked at his mother and she nodded. He kissed Talia on the forehead ad said, “I will wait for you at the door. Don’t wait out in the rain for long.“I won’t, now go.”He took his mother out of the garden. While they were standing somewhere dry his mother began to laugh.“Mother, why are you laughing?”“I think I now understand what they meant when they said a Seer can do anything to protect what she loves.”“What is that supposed to mean?”“Chloe started a fight but that could have been prevented but Talia wanted her to do that.”“Why would she risk being slapped like that?”“To put her in her
