A man in a blue robe knelt beside her, just out of the blood and looked her over.His black eyes took in every inch of her while she was oblivious to him. His royal robes and deep brown hair completely missed her notice, as did his pretty boy smile and manly charms.
He however took in the way some of her white hair had red trails where blood had soaked into the hairs. Small smears of blood were on her forehead where she had wiped the sweat. Her hair was even falling from its bun and braid around her in a messy array from hurrying over. Not to mention the red stained dress with its sash not quite centered and smooth. She couldn't be bothered with it right now.
Despite or perhaps because of this, she was more captivating to him. Her beauty and gentle nature made clear in the defining moment. Kyera's hands glowed slightly darker with power of the shadows. She poured all of her energy into him to stop the blood, but didn't seal the wound. She couldn't or she would seal the poison inside. There was too much and even if they cured the poison the dead flesh would rot. She had to clean it out.
The worst part was what she needed could be found nearby. She had smelt the little fluttering fae all over the place in the woods. However she could hardly leave to seek one herself. "Does anyone speak fairy?" she asked looking around her at the men and women around. No one spoke up but the man raised a brow. He seemed to have a small spark in his eyes as if he had an idea but was intensely curious as well.
"We don't learn that here, what do you need Fairy Speech for?" he asked his voice gentle and curious. Kyera cast him a glance and cursed her luck. He was the third prince, Alexi. His deep brown hair, almost black tipped with red was a dead give away coupled with the azure robes of the Fox. He was known for his hunting abilities with a word where clovis was known for his bow.
"I need fairy water, if at all possible… I can't leave his side…. Damn" She cursed still funneling energy into him. At this point she didn't care who saw, the dark energy flowed from her fingertips just as it did from Half Eye before. He raised an eyebrow seeing such a unusual skill in broad daylight. It was refreshing for him.
"What does fairy water do? Cure the poison?" he asked taking a wild guess but he had no idea how wrong he was. Kyera shook her head meeting his eyes, but there was no rebuke in them. Only concern and appreciation for the question.
"Fairy water can rinse the wound and help clear out dead cells without melting the flesh like normal water when it touches this stuff." Kyera explained as she lightly pressed around the wound to force the venom out. He looked away, sickened by the site. This beauty was a rare one indeed.
"That might be doable. Send for Princess Raina and her little fairy kin." He ordered his servant as he stood. Kyera heard this and tilted her head slightly, but decided against telling him she knew the Princess. Afterall, she didn't know how Alexi and his niece got along.
Finally, the venom stopped flowing from the wound and the tiger was stable as long as the remaining poison was kept at bay. Kyera sat back, her bloody hands on her lap as she tried to catch her breath. The blood was being held back by the shadow energy, but she wasn't sure how long the Lion had, but she had no power left to give.
Seeing she was exhausted, Prince Alexi ordered his servant to offer Kyera a teacup which she declined. Though she could tell it was a restorative tea, she knew the tea cup was hand made china and very precious. The walls were so thing she suspected she could cut her lips on the delicate edge.
When he frowned at her disapprovingly she motioned to her handa. "Bloody hands." she explained, before looking at the wound again. A few moments passed and found the cup brought to her lips. She glanced at him and he gave her a sweet smile.
"Take a sip." he encouraged and Kyera allowed the energy in her to flow through the tea, ensuring it wasn't tainted. Once she was sure it was safe, Kyera parted her lips and the serving girl poured some of the sweet hot liquid into her mouth. It was refreshing, and cool like mint.
Yet another member of the royal family intoduced. So Alexi is Queen Fae's second born son. He was not close to Clovis but he was mentioned in a previous chapter. He has twin boys.
