“I am the father of the child”, Azar spoke up, “but she will not live, she must die” Ignis looked at him with anger, “You! You are to take after me as the oldest yet you are the one causing me pain. That girl will not die! She is carrying the child of a royal Draego. No one will touch her and she must come here”. “Ignis, you have to understand that, that human will be his weakness and he needs strength”, the empress replied. Edgan and Zayn turned to Azar, they were trying to think of any human girl they saw him with. Ignis turned to his wife to reply to her, “If you read that letter, you’d see that her father is about to sell her off through a marriage alliance to the Slavcan prince, do you want Azar’s child to grow with the Slavcans?” *********************** Kaliyah had caused quite an uproar among the Draegos as she was a human carrying the child of a royal dragon. This child was her saving grace from the hands of the brutal Slavcans and a call to her destiny as the bride of the royal dragon. As the warrior princess that she was, she fought for peace in her time and helped grow her kingdom with the help of the dragons.View More
“Mother, what brings you here?”, Azar decided to ask to end the topic of pregnancy and avoid further fight. “To take her, training will begin shortly. I would have sent someone to come take her but I was afraid she’d decline”, the empress said with a smile plastered on her face. “I’m afraid she’d have to skip training for now”, Azar said. The empress looked at Azar, a little dumbfounded, “I am quite hurt that you dare speak against your mother and the Empress but it’s fine, I understand your sentiments as she is with your child. But your father and I have already discussed this. She is not even worthy to carry your…” “Mother”, Azar cut her mid-sentence, “Enough with all these. She cannot begin training immediately because she is with child” Kaliyah was touched seeing the way Azar supported her but then she thought, “It’s not like he cares about me, it's about his child”. “She is weak and clueless about this empire and about the kind she carries in her womb! She has to be taught!
“It’s nice to meet you, I am Princess Kaliyah”, Kaliyah greeted monotonously and without expression. The woman clicked her tongue, “And I am Azar’s mother, the empress!” Kaliyah raised her brows, Azar? It must be the name of the father of her child. She quickly schooled her expression and bowed slightly, “My honor. Is there a problem?” “No, I came to see the human we have been expecting”, she couldn’t hide her disgust when she said ‘human’, “You will begin training in 30 minutes, get ready”, she said and turned to leave. “Wait”, Kaliyah stopped her and the empress paused, without turning back, “I just got here, shouldn’t you think of giving me food first and letting me rest before I go for whatever training I need to go for” The empress chuckled and turned sideways to talk to her, “You are hungry and you cooped yourself up in your room, that’s funny. Were you expecting me to come to serve you? Get ready, in half an hour, you will begin training. Being late will attract punishment
In the throne room, The king was seated on his throne with a distraught expression on his face. The royal investigator, Morat, the chief commander, Brenna and Kenna, were seated in the throne room.The sky was dark and cloudy as it was about to rain and the hall was dimly lit concealing the look of anxiousness and fear on the faces of Brenna and Kenna.The royal investigator cleared his throat, “The contents of the letter are highly incriminating, proper investigation has to be done, my king”“Are you trying to say I would do such a thing? Are you trying to say that I would leave the kingdom without even telling the king at night? This is treason!”, Brenna said angrily and stood up, “The writer of that false letter and the royal investigator must be charged with treason”. Kenna stared at her mother silently with obvious fear in her eyes.“But I am not the one who wrote the letter”, The royal investigator retorted politely with an expressionless face.“Silence everyone!”, the king orde
The days passed quickly, with Kaliyah keeping to herself and not leaving her room to avoid further drama. She had to be careful, she didn’t know what Brenna was planning. It was already the day when the dragon said he would come to take her.She was sitting by her dresser with Rheagal styling her hair.“Do you think I should style my hair or just let it down? The dragon females rarely style their hair”, Kaliyah said thinking of all the female dragons she had met before. They were beautiful but arrogant and they looked down on humans. She wondered how her life with them would be.“Whatever you want will be fine but you have to look presentable as you will finally be meeting the dragons today”, Rheagal replied. She was nervous and scared of what may happen today. Brenna had been silent and had done nothing since Kaliyah almost had a miscarriage, it made Rheagal think she was up to something.“I’ll leave my hair down then”, Kaliyah said, “Bring me the letter I wrote yesterday”.Rheagal w
The following morning, the atmosphere of the palace was stained with worry and tension as news of Princess Kaliyah’s bleeding had spread in the palace. The maids and workers in the palace had already been warned to not spread the word outside the palace. Naturally, news of Kaliyah having a miscarriage was already in the air in the palace.In Kenna’s brightly decorated room, she was at the dresser while her maid was styling her hair. She was ecstatic at the news she heard. If she couldn’t get a dragon, Kaliyah would not also be given that privilege. The maid who was putting the pins suddenly stopped, “Milady, wouldn’t it be weird for you to dress up like this when such a shocking thing happened last night?”Kenna’s smile wavered a little and she turned to the maid, collected a pin from the maid’s hand and stabbed her in her arm, “Since when were you given the privilege to talk to me casually?”The maid stuttered and moved backward in fear as Kenna moved towards her. She couldn’t even c
Kaliyah was being attended to by Rheagal when a maid quickly rushed in. “I’m sorry Your Highness, the king and the physician are on their way here”, the maid said with her head bowed. Thankfully, Kaliyah was already dressed. “You may leave”, she dismissed the maid. “Why is the physician coming here?”, Rheagal asked no one in particular. In less than a minute, the king and the physician were already at her door. Rheagal met them at the door. “I want to see Kaliyah”, the king said with a grim expression. “Let them in”, Kaliyah’s voice was heard from inside the room. Rheagal reluctantly made space for them to enter. They entered with 2 maids carrying trays without them. “Do you want to kill your father and finish this kingdom? Why haven’t you been taking your medicine when you know you are pregnant with a dragon’s child? You should take care of yourself!”, the King said and then motioned to a maid to move forward. She was carrying a tray with a glass of the herbal drink. She was
“Please do not feel threatened by your father’s words, there is no need to bring a human here”, the empress begged Azar, following him to his room upstairs. “I have gone to her family to inform them that I would be picking her up in three days”, Azar replied when they finally arrived at his room. “You are not listening to me or do you care about the lowly human?”, the empress asked. “Please accept my decision with good faith”, Azar replied and shut the door to his room, leaving his mother outside. She turned around angrily. “What would people say of the royal family? The human can never match the strength and beauty of a dragon female!” She doubted she could stop him from bringing her so she was only going to make sure the human begs to go back to wherever she came from. She went to meet her husband, the emperor in his room. He was reading a parchment with his round-rimmed glasses when she entered. He looked up when he heard someone enter. “I want to talk to you”, she said. He
“I assume you’ve also been taking good care of her as she’s carrying my child”, Azar spoke in his low voice and this was enough to shake the room.“What are you saying, great dragon?” the king managed to say when he finally found his voice.Kenna and Brenna turned to look at Kaliyah with shocked expressions. Everyone in the room was shaken. Kaliyah appeared to not be affected.“Or is she not pregnant? You dare try to marry her off to the Slavcans when she is carrying a royal dragon?” Azar said in his usual low voice slowly.The king immediately turned to Kaliyah, “Princess Kaliyah, care to explain what he is saying?”“Kaliyah stood up and bowed, “He is the father of the child I am carrying”Kenna could not take it anymore. She stood up angrily, “Kaliyah, where on earth did you meet a dragon, and when?”Azar’s eyes remained fixed on the king, “Is she perhaps trying to call me a liar?”The king looked at Kenna worriedly, “Kenna please sit down and do not talk till you are permitted to”.
News of the dragon sighted in the Tamar kingdom was quick to spread even among neighboring kingdoms. The humans were afraid as no dragon had visited the humans in its dragon form for years now and this dragon that visited was a royal one.Azar was unaware of the uproar he had caused and quietly entered the throne room. He was silent but his presence was loud enough because even King Elliot was almost trembling. Azar met the king, the chief commander, and Morat, an adviser to the king there. He was quickly given a seat to sit down.The king started speaking, “You are highly welcome to our land. To what do we owe this unexpected visit?”, he spoke politely.“I am Azar and I want to talk in the presence of the royal family of this land”, he said in his deep and rough voice without a care in the world.The atmosphere became tense.“Excuse me highly revered, but we are here. You can talk to us”, Morat was quick to say.The king cut him off, “It’s fine, Morat. Order a soldier to bring the Qu
