“So, I take I he wasn’t too pleased with our proceedings?” Hector was perched up on the chrysanthemum tree, idly reading a book when Alexis had sat down to pour her troubles to him. His reading would have to wait.
Alexis gave a dry laugh, “I’m not entirely sure. Why do you t
The bill passed sooner than most would have thought. The aristocratic’s did ask for a few other conditions which were thoroughly reviewed, but other than that things sailed smoothly.All there was left was for Alastair to finalise a contract with a recovering Shane. And so he was invited to the palace. Something no vampire had ever had the displeasure of. He looked to every corner of the palace in caution, expecting an assassination any moment. Of course, nothing happened.
“Are you sure about this?” Emilia asked one final time.She held a book, large and heavy, full of flying specks of dust that would’ve had a human coughing fits. It was a spell book. Full of ancient spells that were pretty forbidden… and also illegal.But what greater hypocrites are there than the ones wh
The clock struck nine pm. It was time.A sense of uncertainty came over the girl as she stared at the computer screen before her. All it took was one refresh. That was it and she could know the result. The final result that would forever control her life. Dictate her future income.‘It couldn’t be that bad…’ she consol
Alexis' mind reeled as she felt that falling feeling for longer than she had ever. It was like a roller coaster that lasted longer than the few minutes it should and when the man’s feet gracefully touched the floor, Alexis' head rolled over on the inside.She groaned all to soon, because it seemed the man who bought her was also affected by the fall and dropped her sideways on a bed, thankfully. She continued to groan on the bed and tried to make sense of what had just happened.'The floor opened up and we fell a few stories down didn't we? It would only make sense' she heard the man continue to also groan.‘Why would the floor open up, though?’"Your highness!" A loud screech pierced through her ears further confusing her. "I knew travelling like that would have a bad affect on you! Can you still breath? What about your sight? Is it blurry? And your bones?" The voice seemed to sprout endless concerns, until the sharp deep voice coming fro
This time, Alexis wasn't in a large European style bedroom, but a small room that was connected to another huge bedroom, separated by a small door.She recalled how luxurious that huge bedroom was and again wondered just where she was. It wasn't like anything she's seen before. She couldn't assume she went back in time because the quality of some the stuff she saw was amazing.This room seemed to be more of an office space, not loaded with papers or possible scrolls but clean, tidy and definitely well kept.Alexis was roughly placed on a wooden chair before a large glossy desk, directly in-front of her was a view of the blue sky through a smaller window compared to the last rooms, but the golden linings across the window made it clear to her, that this room, despite being small was well invested into.It must be an important place."It's my private study," her kidnapper seemed to answer her inquiring gaze. His red eyes gave her a
"Well", she continued to wait for an answer and soon the tip of his mouth moved."I don't enjoy the company of humans." He answered. His eyes looked anywhere but her as he answered, from his demeanour it was clear he felt uncomfortable with such a question being asked.Confused and a bit lost, Alexis leaned back and suddenly recalled how Agathus, the hybrid, had spoke about different species like Ogres and Dwarfs.'Were there others?' She thought carefully before speaking."Oh... we don't have different species in our world. Well, we do, but only humans can speak and maybe a parrot or two..." Alexis muttered glancing around, "so what your trying to say is that humans don't spend time with you and so... they don't like you?""Wrong. I don't like them.""So what's the problem then?" Alexis was utterly bemused."Fix my public image." He spoke coldly.Alexis frowned.'What was this? Some kind of riddle?' Sh
Alexis couldn't help but stare mesmerised by the angelic being in front of her. The being in turn, just smiled in return as if she was very used to people staring as dreamily as Alexis did.Her silvery hair framed her pale skin and her green eyes fluttered open surrounded by long silver lashes. Her clothes consisted of a long foot-length white dress, it was simple yet, somehow, it looked amazing on her. She was breath-taking and very tall as well, like a woman out of Greek mythology. Alexis couldn't help but think she was very similar to the emperor in that aspect.The only feature about her that made Alexis sure of what she was, were the pointy ears on each side of her head. Had it not been for them, Alexis would have thought she was an angel."Your an elf, aren't you?" The woman chuckled at Alexis' triumphed face. Her laughter sounded sweet and silky."His highness did inform me about your lack of familiarity with other verbally intellectual
Emilia soon left Alexis who still sat in her seat staring drearily at the pile of books left in Emilias wake. She shook her depressed feelings away and turned to the dwarfs.'If dwarfs couldn't apparently think for themselves then how did that one maid come up with the idea to make tea? That was enough of a thought!'"Excuse me? Miss maid?" She called the dwarf from earlier. The dwarf maid noticed and obediently walked over, "Can I ask for your name?"The dwarf maid looked stunned for a bit and then seemed to recover as she gave an adorable curtsy while speaking, "Angela, My name is Angela"."Angela..." Alexis stared at the maid, with her blonde hair and brown eyes, she did pass as an Angela. "Is it alright if I ask you a question?""Oh I'm not good with questions, Ma'm. But I will do my best!" She beamed at Alexis."What made you think I needed tea earlier?" Alexis realised the question was pretty rude an
