"That being said, the decision has been made." Queen Fae replied nodding in triumph. The Emperor would never go back on a promise.
"I am sorry for your trouble, Lady Kyera. I will see to it you are compensated for your pains." The Emperor spoke, unable to find a way to back down gracefully he pushed ahead hard unaware of the thin strand he snapped.
Empress Evelyn took her circlet from her head, and set it on the table. Clovis frowned knowing exactly what his mother intended by this action. It had been years in coming, it was just a pity her legs were lost before they could make this choice. He took his mother's chair and pushed it down while the rest of the royals watched.
"Since you have no use for a Empress, and my daughters choose to call Shadowveil home, so shall I. Goodbye Roderick. Kira you finally won, Empress." Evelyn's voice broke and Kyera took her hand the pain washing over her as well.
"Eve you can't mean.." The Emperor stood moving to come to her. Kira grabbed his sleeve.
"She is doing what she believes is best, but is also abandoning you and our country." Queen Kira spoke softly to remind him but Kyera heard it well. She laughed.
"The Emperor Abandoned and neglected her and her children. I hope you enjoy the throne as long as you occupy it." Kyera added smirking as the warning hung in the air.
"You speak out of turn, Kyera! I have never chosen any above my Empress." The Emperor Roared and Eve shook her head.
"If that was true, then why do your Queens sit in the Empress's rightful place? Why was I alone for so long? Our love grew cold and I suffered because I loved you and strived to keep that ember burning. You allowed their touch to smother my ember. I hope you understand I will never betray my people, but I will not stand by Emperor who is more worried about his bed than his kingdom." Empress Evelyn replied and looked up at Clovis and nodded. "If you ever realize where you went wrong, I will be in Shadow Veil."
"Mother and I are going. I will return for the Heir Games. Until then my family and I will be safe from your games." Clovis added before following Kyera out of the hall, leaving the Emperor at the table broken in shock.
"How could she...feel that way?" he whispered honestly shocked and unable to force himself to go after her. She had made it clear she wasn't going to change her mind.
"She is unreasonable. Her and her ungrateful son will come home after they realize they can't control you. You are a strong Emperor unbent by their tantrums." Queen Kira soothed him. He sighed looking up at her.
"My faithful Queen. You would never desert me." he whispered softly.
"All due respect, Kira but you calling Clovis Ungrateful is a joke, and not a funny one for that matter." Alexi spoke with a bit of disgust in his tones.
"There was no respect in that, Alexi. Fae I suggest you control your son." Kira replied cooly. Her tone carefully controlled.
"Father, it is your choice. Do you want to know the truth or do you want to keep living in the lie?" Alexi asked, his expression full of challenge. The Queens both glared at him in complete annoyance.
They were his wives but… he had lost his Empress, his son, and his granddaughter. It killed him to lose them. If there was something he was missing… no there couldn't be. He couldn't be missing so much. THen again could he be? Both sons standing up together made him think it through.
"If there is something you belive I should know, then speak." The Emperor replied and Alexi laughed.
"No, Father. I think, this time, you will have to decide you want to know. Until then, you will only deny and try to reason away the things I have to tell you. Good evening, Emperor, Queen Kira, and Queen Fae." He bowed careful to emphasise Queen on Kira's name.
"Empress Kira, Second Prince Alexi." Kira corrected him and The Emperor shifted uncomfortably. Technically, until Empress Evelyn returned the title was her's by right.
"I will call no woman Empress than My Empress Evelyn and god willing Empress Kyera, not you nor my mother." Alexi replied coldly before turning to walk away. His words were like a cold slap across the face of both Queens, and The Emperor.
