(excerpt from the Reign of a Queen)
We woke under the purple Alluvium sky. Our tour had been horrific. In Vitreous they hated me and sacrificed a beautiful young Fae so that Artemis might come down and smite Rayelynn for loving me. At every turn, we found loathing and disdain. No one told the kingdoms we were coming, and with no means to let them all know, Rayelynn and I shocked and surprised each monarch we visited. At first, we thought Alluvium would be different, but as we slept in our guest room on our first night, we heard the patter of feet and the shouts of war. I couldn’t believe the king had allowed his people to attack us. Rayelynn was a goddess…
We were surrounded by warriors with firebombs who threw them into our chamber. Fire engulfed our room, but we were both able to fly out a window and make our escape. Immediately, we barged into the king’s private quarters.
“How dare you set your troops upon us,” Rayelynn admonished the king.
“I did no such thing,” the king in his nightwear protested. “Get out of my room!”
“I am a goddess,” she countered. “I can be where I please. Call off your army, now! I’ll wait.”
She sat in a high-backed chair, looking perfectly regal. I took my place standing beside her, glowing with pride.
“Not until you take this abomination from my eyes.” He looked to me and hatred seared my flesh.
“The only abomination in this room is you.” Rayelynn’s voice remained calm. “I’ve told you that the Arcades have been emancipated from the darkness. The fallen angels serve the gods of Estancia as protectors and wardens. You will call off your troops and will no longer insult my mate. If you want the gods of Estancia to continue to care about the citizens of Alluvium, you’ll heed my warning.” She stood up to leave the king. “We will stay until I am satisfied that there is no threat to the Arcades from Alluvium.”
“Bring back those who the Arcadians have abducted, and I’ll consider holding my warriors back.” The king’s threats only made Rayelynn more angry.
“Name them, name each and every Alluvium you want returned, and I will offer whatever Alluvian fairy still residing in the Arcades an opportunity to repatriate.”
The king scoffed. “I haven’t their names. They were but lowly beings, nothings,” he laughed.
“If they weren’t precious to you, why avenge them?” Rayelynn’s voice slid over her words.
“The Arcadians have to be stopped,” was his self-righteous grumble.
“And they have been, thanks to the hard work of their former king who now stands at my side. I guarantee you, trespass against him or his kind without warrant, and you will suffer their justice.
