Chapter 1: Dark Fae Prince (part 1)
"Well are you now awake Unseelie?"asked Blood.
Unseelie opened his eyes to glare at the new prince of his castle.
"I'm awake Blood Fyric,"spoke Unseelie softly.
Blood slapped him across the face. "Say it correctly,"he ordered.
"I am awake Your Majesty,"said Unseelie.
Blood snorted with laughter while he left the room with his Guard following close behind.
Unseelie punched the wall with his fist.
'That Prince Blood is gonna kill me one day I just no it,'thought Unseelie bitterly.
He remember how Blood had stole his crown from right under his nose.
But he was glad he was wearing his favorite tattered white cloak edged in gold.
And then there was the belts.
Unnaturally, they first wound around his neck,then left arm followed by the chest and finally the right forearm.
On Unseelie's left thigh,was a double belt band as more belts wound around his high white boots.
Unseelie sighed as he lowered his hood to finger the talismin hanging from his golden light brown hair.
He missed Jagger Hal the captain of his guard including Scarlet Ason,Hal's second in command.
Collasping on his uncomfortable bed,Unseelie gazed up at the cavern like ceiling.
'I wish someone would save me from being killed by Blood Fyric's hand,'thought Unseelie.
'There may be some one who may save you,'answered a voice deep within Unseelie.
'The Unknown Prince Rhage Vxerz,'answered the voice.
Hearing that name made Unseelie's heart quicken.
"Rhage Vxerz,"whispered Unseelie trying out the name while his hand slipped into one of the pockets.
There he found a small ear piece from Jagger before Blood plus his minions came to haul them away.
Screwing the ear piece into his ear,Unseelie tapped it once then said into it,"Jagger Hal come in,Jagger Hal come in."
'Jagger here Your Grace,'replied a voice.
"Its good to hear your voice captain,"said Unseelie with a grin.
'Same to you Your Majesty,'commented Jagger's voice.
'I'm here too Your Grace!'came Scarlet's voice.
"Nice to hear from you too Scarlet,"mused Unseelie.
'Where are you Your Grace?'interrupted Jagger's voice.
"I'm trapped in my Castle's dungeon,"muttered Unseelie.
'Whaaaat?!?!'exclaimed both Scarlet's plus Jagger's voices together.
"Yeah Prince whats his face I think is gonna kill me,"explained Unseelie.
'Grrrrrr,'growled Jagger's voice.
'He can't do that!'added Scarlet's voice.
"But I do have an order for you Jagger,"said Unseelie putting a hand behind his head.
'What is it Your Grace?"asked Jagger's voice.
"I need you to keep an eye out for anybody named 'Rhage Vxerz,"instructed Unseelie.
'Yes Your Grace I will take care of it,'answered Jagger's voice before the line went silent.
Unseelie smiled and took out the earpiece just as a guard entered with his dinner.
The guard place the tray on a metal table before leaving the room.
Unseelie went over to the table then sat down in its only chair.
Carefully he lifted up the lid,only to turn away to gag.
On the tray there was a bowl of nasty green soup,burnt garlic toast and what appears to days old salad.
Unseelie quickly slammed the cover back on the tray just as a gag escaped his lips.
Blood headed towards his throne room with his Royal Guard around him.
"My Lord your steward is waiting on you,"murmured Blood's captain.
"How perfect I thank you my captain,"thanked Blood.
His captain bowed his head before he and the guards stepped aside to form a walkway.
Blood nodded to each of his guards,cause they were all tight knit friends,then stopped infront of his steward.
"Your Highness where have you been?!"complained the steward.
"I was making sure steward that my prized prisoner is still alive,"replied Blood with a smirk.
The steward nodded before stomping off down a hallway.
Blood flicked his hand and within moments he was surrounded by his loyal guard.
Snorting with laughter,Blood told his guard about what has happen.
His guard soon joined in on the laughing as they entered the throne room.
"Ahhh its our Majesty!!"gushed several female voice.
The captain rolled his eyes before he plus three guards led Blood to his throne.
Blood settled down with an easy smile sliding into place.
The first lady stepped forward to curtesy then kiss the Majesty's hand.
'This is gonna be a long day,'thought Blood.
Oooo, this sounds interesting!
[Outside of DaeLim]
Rhage fanned himself while leaning against a large pine oak tree.
His guard was also leaning against trees with sweat making their clothes stick.
"Where in the world are we?"asked Shaye.
"Looks like we are in the territory of Rfhre,"replied Blaylock.
The others were about to reply when the sound of hooves caught their attention.
Rhage signal Rhys and Rhett to check it out with Chaos as backup.
Fifteen minutes later the three return holding very angry looks on their faces.
"Whats wrong you guys?"asked Rhage stepping forward.
"A rival prince challenges Our Majesty to a race,"answered Rhys bowing down on one knee.
"Well then lets meet this rival prince,"remarked Rhage nodding to Blaylock.
"Mayhem! Qhuinn! Chaos! Shaye and Laius! Gather the horses!"instructed Blaylock.
"What about us captain?"asked Rhys.
"You and your brother are lookouts,"suggested Blaylock.
The Kalevi twins nodded before jumping high up into the trees.
Others soon returned with all the horses the oracle gave them.
Rhage mounted up then takes notice of a group of dusty figures.
Blaylock appeared beside him while the other guards took position around him.
Together they venture out of the sweltering forest just as a different guard surrounded them.
"Whose the one who challenges me?"called out Rhage.
"Me,"replied a figure,who has long lime green hair plus two mismatched eyes.
One was a dark forest green,the other was red.
The figure had on a dark red cloak that held an embelm of a broken hand.
"Who are you?"asked Rhage.
"I am Prince Demin Coset from the castle of DaeLim,"answered Demin smiling a sly smile.
'Whats with the broken hand embelm?'thought Chaos.
-looks at my busted hand-
i'm scared to think of what it might be.
Tourai:*rocks back and forth in seat* need more here!
Demin smiled as other figures surrounded him and his Guard.
The figures had strange black markings on them as they keep coming in.
Then they surged in on Rhage to trap him in a large sack.
Couple of figures picked up the sack together with a nod from Demin.
Rhage's Guard watch on in horror while the figures disappeared back into the forest.
"MAJESTY!!!!"exclaimed Rhage's Guard in unison.
[Castle of DaeLim]
Blood sent his Guard to retrieve the sack,then told them to put it in the dungeons.
"Excellent work Demin,"whispered Blood to himself.
The rest of the guard softly snickered just as the stewards appeared yet again.
"What is this time stewards?"asked Blood.
"The Unknown-,"started one steward.
"I know I just captured him steward,"interrupted Blood smiling easily.
Both stewards stared at him dumbstruck.
Blood laughed a cold laugh then shooed them away from him.
Unseelie listened for footsteps as they came towards his cell.
Quickly backing away,Unseelie saw one of the Prince's guard unlocked the next door cell.
Then two Guards stepped into the cell to turn over a large sack,which a teen with blue blackish hair fell out of.
Unseelie felt his heart quicken at the sight of the teen before the door was sealed shut.
Waiting til the close was cleared,Unseelie drew out his spare jumble of keys to sort through them.
After finding the right key,he fitted into the key to twist it this way and that.
Unseelie silently pushed his door open then stepped into the hallway.
Hurrying over to the other door,he soon got that one unlocked so he could slip inside.
He soon found the teen all bruised lying on his side in one corner of the cell.
'Is it him?'thought ask Unseelie.
'Its him the Unknown Prince,'whispered a voice inside his head.
Unseelie fell to knees beside the Prince's head to brush the stranded bangs off the face.
Then he felt the deep cut in the left cheek.
'What has happen to you Prince Rhage Vxerz?"thought Unseelie feeling the rest of Rhage's face.
Where did he get those keys??
