I hated him.
It was the only truth I could cling to because I was unsure of everything
I hated him for making me trust him when I shouldn’t have. I loathed him
for making me see a future that was nothing more than a deception.
He was no better than his brother. At least Gavril had the decency to
show me who he really was. He took from me, but not in the same way Evren
had. Evren had made me want him, beg for him, and it was nothing more
than a manipulation.
I fell for him when I wasn’t supposed to, and he had let me fall.
He was the heir to the Blood kingdom, everything I had been taught to
fear, and he had let me fall.
I stared at his back as he started to set up the tent. I was surrounded by
my enemies, but all I could look at was him. His gaze landed on me, and I
forced myself to look away. I refused to meet his eyes. Instead, I stared ahead
and watched his mother as she spoke softly to one of her guards. The guard
that had been ready to hurt her son only hours before.
She was so different than what I expected the Blood queen to be. She was
softer than the legends that were told of her. The way she continuously
pushed her hair out of her face as she helped her men set up camp reminded
me of my mother. My chest ached as I thought of her; after all, she was the
one who had so easily handed me over to people who were only planning to
She had sealed my fate as easily as the star marks on my skin.
Evren’s magic caressed my skin like a whisper, but I refused to
acknowledge it. He hadn’t let it fall from me since we left the forest edge en
route to the Blood Court. He hadn’t refused me my own horse, not after I
absolutely declined to go anywhere near him, but he did refuse to give me
space. He kept his dark magic wrapped around me for the duration of the
ride. It moved and embraced me as if it was checking to make sure I was all
But I wasn’t. How could I be?
I tried to garner up my own power to blast his touch away from me, but I
was tired. Far too tired, and I didn’t know how to control my magic like he
did. Magic that I didn’t understand, that I hadn’t even known I had.
Magic that felt so familiar even though we had just met.
I thought back to a time before Evren, when I had been alone with my
mother in our village. Had my magic been with me all along even then? Had
my mother known? Had my father?
I could still feel it coursing under my skin. My magic had been awoken
inside me, and I wasn’t sure how I had never noticed it before. It felt wild and
reckless, like an extension of me I’d yet to meet.
