THE RUSTLE of wings alerted Lexi that one of the dragons was descending
into the throne room, but she didn’t turn to look. It’s Alina.
She wasn’t sure how she knew, but Lexi was certain the speaker had
arrived. It came through the bond that formed to connect her and the dragons
when she ascended the arach throne.
That was two days ago, and she hadn’t seen Alina since becoming queen,
but Lexi hadn’t spent any time exploring Dragonia or calling the dragons to
her. She’d been too exhausted and heartbroken to do anything like that.
But today, she had no other choice. She could give herself one day to
recuperate and wallow in self-pity and sorrow, but she couldn’t allow two.
She had to get up and learn more about the realm she would rule.
Now that she’d claimed the Dragonian throne and sealed her birthright to
rule over the realms, she had to deal with her responsibilities. The only
problem was she had no idea where to start with everything she had to do.
She’d already been to the infirmary and assisted with the wounded, but
there were so many of them. She did what she could with the worst injuries
before retreating from the suffering that filled the room.
There was little more she could do there, but she had to do something to
keep herself occupied. So, she settled on something small, necessary, and that
she could do—clean.
“You should not be doing that,” Alina said.
She wasn’t the first immortal to tell her this, but, as Lexi had told her aunt
and Orin, the problem was… “Who else is going to do it? All those who lived
and worked in this palace were loyal to the Lord. They’ve all fled, been
killed, or are in the dungeon.”
Lexi threw her bloody sponge into the wooden bucket before turning to
face the red dragon. Alina’s golden eyes studied her from their slitted pupils
as she rose to reveal the yellow flecks along her belly.
Blood stained the ground and walls around Lexi, but she’d made some
progress in removing the carnage she and Cole had left in their wake. Maybe
she should do something besides scrubbing the blood from the throne room,
but she couldn’t focus on anything else.
Besides, there was no way she could sit in this room, and on that throne,
with all the blood and scorch marks still marring the floor. And soon, she
would have to sit on the arach throne and welcome others to the realm she
The scorch marks weren’t coming off, and she suspected they’d forever
scar the floor. Maybe they should remain to remind her of what could happen
if someone else took the throne.
They could also serve as a deterrent against those who came here seeking
to overthrow her. It would not be an easy fight.
“The immortals in your army should do this,” Alina said.
“Most have left to either rebuild their realms or find new ones to settle.
They have lives to rebuild, and they didn’t agree to fight with us so they
could work for me afterward.”
