In the forest.
"Sorry I pushed you but who are you?"
Tahni pleaded as she stood tall, away from the fallen trunk of the fir tree. Her hand was outstretched to help the wierd lady up, and the lady grabbed it. But as the lady grabbed her hand, there coursed a current from the lady's palm, which taunted the veins of Tahni. Tahni let go of the lady's hand, she felt drained. She fell on her back, though still conscious.
The lady walked to her and offered her hand but Tahni didn't take it. The beautiful face of the lady folded into a rich smile as she said in broken accent,
"Don't be feared Aynea. Aynea be friends."
Tahni helped herself up as she considered the lady closely. She could make the full feature of the wierd lady out finally. But what she seemed to have a problem was the accent. And of course, the body contact.&nb
The Palace of the king. "We'd like to see the king." One of the two ladies said to the guards standing at the door of the king's castle. Her brown pupils ran through the face of the long-faced guard. "What for? The king is no flimsy man and would revere every of the minutes spent with him." The other guard picked his turn, "Plus we are now in a trying time. The king wouldn't fancy the businesses of whores." The other lady who seemed to wear the sharp stare landed a slap on the face of the warrior who had called them whores. The guard almost knocked the lady out, but the other lady grabbed the thrusted hand of the guard and bent it, twisting the spine. The fellow wrenched in pain. Suddenly the door to the palace opened immediately a
On a path. "If you don't mind telling me, is the king having an affair with his daughter?" The young sister asked, her face keen on the guard who was on the other side of the carriage beside her at the front. They were two more guards at the back. While the King and the elder sister were in the carriage with one guard. The guard who had been asked the question was the same one who had been nice to them in the palace. The same one she had been rude and somewhat sassy to. There was every possibility that he would pick on her and seek a revenge but she was still waiting. His response should say it all. Or better still, his reaction. "And why should I reply or give you and answer?" He shot her a glare and looked back at the gaunt but throdden path. They were walking through a forest. The forest at the outs
Towards the Palace. "Who do I see?" The guard stopped talking for a while. One of two guards who were always at the gate of the castle. Those same two guards who had had a clash with the two sisters who had visited the palace earlier that day. "Not anyone presently. Used to see Taoma and Ruiti and Veilma, and Miatla and --" The first guard snapped at the fool making a list, "Would you just shut the fuck up and look towards the direction of my face?" The second guard looked towards the direction the first guard had been looking at. His jaw dropped as he muttered, "Gods be damned. Isn't that the king?" He pointed at the man dressed in blue royal apparel and was staggering towards the castle. His form was not in its full fledged yet, so they couldn
Inside the tree."When did Ayla tell you that she would arrive?"Vulcan's voice was barely high but it got to the wandering Prium who at the moment stood at the front of the portal, arms tucked into each other, wrapped over her boobs, her back to her father.Immediately, she turned and began to walk to meet Vulcan who was lying on the green lawn which was quite distant from the house now with three rooms and a living room. Each room for each of them."She didn't say. Who cares whether or not she's done with the crazy task. Who even asked her to act as the king? We all know the king is dead why go an extra mile in the name of complications?"She was almost close to him. He didn't sit up, his legs yet were spread out, his bare back to the green and his waist covered in a kinda wrapper woven from the hides of cheetahs."Why do you dislike her this much?!"He asked finally! His voice refi
Inside the tree. On a bed."Do not say a thing."Vulcan's voice authoritative, yet tampered with compassion and concern. His eyes tracing the curves of Ayla's face. She was lying on the bed.Prium was seating on one of the stools in the room to the end of the space by the entrance. She was reading indifferently from a scroll.Vulcan didn't know why she had come into Ayla's room if she knew she wasn't going to be of any help to her. The Prium lady could be some big big dick.Occasionally she would look away from the scroll up to see where on Ayla's body, Vulcan's hand was touching. You could tell even without an expertise that jealousy was her reason for being in the room.But Vulcan didn't know why she was still persistent. He had made himself clear to her several minutes ago. He wished he could send her away but that would be ridiculous. He couldn't do that. He didn't have the mind for
Under a tree. A forest."For how long will we sit here?"Tahni asked the barely clothed Aynea who was picking some crushed twigs in the earth. She didn't know why the lady was quite creepy and spent her time doing dirty and pretty crazy things. Things you can't possibly explain its reason of being.The stooping Aynea looked up at her, her back to the stretch of shrubs and woods. Then she said, her dusky face fawning her words,"Aynea be sit here all day. If you be want, you be sit with Aynea."Aynea had that naughty and childish face that Tahni found appealing which was one of the reasons she hadn't decided to let the wierd dryad be all by herself."Aynea!"Tahni called immediately, distracted from her precious thoughts. She was jumpy, wishing she could break into the bark of the tree and enter through."Be scared for Aynea?"Aynea said without looking at her back, unaware of t
At the Palace."I call this meeting firstly to discuss with you chiefs before I take it to the populace."She started, picking each of the five chiefs in her curious gaze. Especially that one chief who wouldn't help but rant if he had the knowledge of what she was about to say."We're at your service, my princess."That same man she feared said, his bulky eyes lapping on her guts. She wished he could just stop looking at her. Even though she hadn't said a thing, it felt to her like that chief already knew what she was about to say."Thank you."She hesitated, thinking of the appropriate way to start the conversation. Or say, the intended."The king as we all know is worthy of our references and reverence. Knowing fully well what he had done both for us and this great land."She paused again, as that chief snapped,"We do not need to be reminded of that, my princess."Obv
A hut. "Where have you been all this while?" The middle-aged woman asked, her mean gaze eating up the indifferent lady walking towards her. She was seated on a stool at the door of the hut. "Didn't you hear what has been happening? Don't you no one is safe anymore? Did you think I have been out working too? Isn't you the one have been looking for? Or do you want to end up like your father and sister too?" She asked, standing from the chair. She wished she could make lashes off her words and lash the lady, but twas a mirage. The lady was very much beyond lashing. "What do you care, ma?" The lady shot at her finally, halting few steps away from the confused mother. "Do not speak back to me in that manner!!!!" The mother shot walking towards the lady to match up her face. "Tahni, let that be the last time you would speak to me in that manner." But Tahni thr
