“You are the heir to the lands and seas, skies and realms. A
Queen instead of a King. You are the Primal of Life,” Nyktos
—the Asher, the One who is Blessed, the Guardian of Souls
and the Primal God of Common Men and Endings—rasped.
Those lips of his that had whispered heated words against my
skin and had also spoken cold, brutal truths were now parted.
Wide, silver eyes churning with streams of luminous eather—
the essence of the gods—fixed on mine. A sort of awe and
wonder softened the cold lines of his high, broad cheekbones,
his blade-straight nose, and cut jaw.
Wavy, reddish-brown hair fell against golden-bronze
cheeks as he lowered himself to one knee, placing his left hand
flat on the throne room floor and his right palm over his chest.
Nyktos was bowing to me.
I recoiled from him. “What are you doing?”
“The Primal of Life is the most powerful being in all the
realms, usurping all other Primals and gods,” Sir Holland said.
Except he was no longer the man I once knew as a knight of
the Royal Guard of Lasania, or a mere mortal. He was one of
the Arae—an actual, godsforsaken Fate, neither god nor
mortal. Able to see the past, present, and future of all, the Arae
weren’t beholden to any Primal Court.
Fates were as terrifying as any Primal, and I couldn’t even
begin to count how many times I’d kicked him.
“He is showing you the respect you are owed, Sera,”
Holland added as I continued staring at Nyktos.
“But I’m not the Primal of Life.” I stated the obvious.
“You carry the only true embers of life inside you,” Nyktos
said, and that deep, softly spoken voice sent a myriad of
shivers over my skin. “For all intents and purposes, you are
the Primal of Life.”
“He speaks the truth.” The goddess Penellaphe drew
closer, coming to stand beneath the open ceiling.
The starstrewn sky cast a soft glow over her warm, light brown skin.
“Denying it isn’t a luxury which can be afforded.”
“But I’m just a mortal—” My lungs felt as if they’d been
filled with tiny holes, and Nyktos was still bowing to me. “Can
you please stand or sit? Anything other than kneel? It’s really
weirding me out.”
Nyktos’s head tilted, sending several strands of hair against
his cheek. “You are the true Primal of Life, just as my father
was. As Holland said, it’s a show of respect.”
“But I don’t des—” I cut myself off, my heart thumping
and chest squeezing. The eather in his eyes stilled. “Can you
just not do that? Please.”
The Primal rose quickly, the wisps of essence in his eyes
brightening so vividly they were almost painful to look upon.
He towered over me, his stare seeming to peel away the layers
of my very being, seeing…sensing what I felt.
