General Cassius stirred at his daughter for a while before he looked at his soldiers. "Take Emedia away and do away with the queen." He commanded.
The soldiers held Emedia by her hand. She tried escaping their grip but they were too powerful.
Queen Celeste was getting weaker and weaker. She was losing it.
she fell to her knees as a sharp pain hit her lower abdomen and that didn't stop the soldiers from walking towards her.
"Stop please, father stop." Emedia cried out but the general wasn't going to change his mind.
"Before you become king, you will need the royal crest." the queen said and looked at him. "But you are not getting it. I won't let you kill my child even if I am six feet below the ground. I will protect this child no matter what. He will grow and become the strongest vampire that will ever live. He will take back his father kingdom from you. He will avenge his parent death. You will kneel down in front of him. He will be your king and you will be his slave," she brought out the royal crest and showed it to the general whose eyes widened.
"you had that all this while?"
"yes and you won't be getting it cause it is meant for the heir, my son."
General Cassius looked at his soldiers. "What are you waiting for? get it." he commanded and they immediately charged towards her.
The queen gave the general a smile. "goodbye." she said and jumped down the cliff before the soldiers could get her.
General Cassius eyes turned red and his fangs elongated.
He shouted in rage. "go after her, I need that crest."
BACK IN AMENESH.
The royal family were all seated for breakfast.
Princess Freya, the wife of prince orchard, the king's second son stood up to get some water when suddenly, she fell to the floor.
"Freya." Orchard shouted and rushed to her. All the family members stood up worried.
"Are you okay?" he asked concerned.
"yes I am. Just felt dizzy."
"you really need to get some rest and am not taking a no for an answer." prince orchard said and helped her up.
"father permit me please, I want to take her to her room." Orchard said.
"you are permitted." Lucien said.
Prince Orchard bowed and left with his wife.
When he got to her room, he helped her to bed.
"Now take some nap."
"But there are still lot of work to do. I need to help."
"Vanessa will help, even Gwendolyn too. They won't be happy seeing you working yourself out again."
"But...I want...to." she said slowly drifting to sleep.
"just sleep." he said and she gave in to the dreamland. "she must be really tired." he said before he tugged her under the blanket and left.
Freya opened her eyes and sat up. She suddenly felt energized.
"How long have I been asleep?" she asked and then she noticed where she was. She wasn't at the palace but at the forest. "What am I doing here?" she asked confused. "How did I get here?" she stood up. "hello?" she called out. "Who brought me here? Show yourself."
The grasses rattled.
Freya moved back frightened. "Show yourself." she said.
A woman suddenly appeared in front of her. Freya screamed scared.
"Don't scream. I mean no harm."
"Who are you? What are you doing here? Did you bring me here?" she asked still frightened.
"I brought you here. Infact, this is your dream but not really a dream. It's more like, a reality happening inside your dream." The woman said.
"You mean all this is a dream but it's really happening?"
"you brought me here?"
"what is your purpose for it?"
"it's very important and I don't have much time. my time is almost up.... I am queen Celeste. I am not from this world. I rule a different world along with my husband but we were both betrayed by a close friend. He killed my husband and was after my life and my son's life. But I couldn't let him kill me so I fell off a cliff. I will soon join my husband and my baby will be all alone." She looked at Freya. "please take good care of him. I placed him in your womb so he has to start another nine month journey." she walked close to Freya. "The baby is a vampire just like me and his father but he will be a different vampire. When he is of age, he will get his father kingdom back. He is powerful and will help you all." she said and turned to leave but Freya stopped her.
"What's all this? Stop this morning joke, I believe you are not drunk." she said.
Queen Celeste turned and looked at her. with a smile she said, "His name is Nicolas."
