The travel to the Kingdom of Viacronis was smooth, fast and uneventful. Nothing beats me entering their realm dressed in Phanteon's official royal uniform and crest. These items spoke of my stature. No questions would be asked whenever I come and visit a realm wearing these. The guardians would always think it was for business purposes. And I want them to think of it that way. I didn't want them to know I came to the vampire realm for a woman.

Half an hour earlier while I was changing into my royal uniform, Elijah couldn't keep his mouth shut.

"No, don't even think about it, " he said, frowning. He was supposed to leave my room while I changed, but he didn't. Instead he kept a close watch on me likely afraid I might run the other way and abandon her.

"What?" I asked as I slipped into my trousers.

"I know what you're thinking, brother, but it won't happen. Whether you like it or not, we are going to Viacronis to get the queen."

"How about you get her instead?" I suggested, my face lacking any picture of concern. "Why must I go there too?"

He hissed loudly and shook his head. "You of all people exactly know why. Not only because you are the King of Phanteon but you are also her husband!"

"Tsk, the marriage was staged, " I huffed. "There was nothing real to it except for this fucking mark so I think you using the word 'husband' is premature."

"Urghhh, " he massaged his forehead, no doubt losing his patience, "just...change and fast. If we're lucky, she won't end up as Hale's dinner."

At the mention of the vampire lord's name, my lycan side growled. The fuck...of all the vampires to purchase her, must it be the dark lord himself?

Learning of Hale's involvement in this situation, I was beginning to think my 'unfinished business' alibi was actually turning into a valid reason.

Zuir Hale Lioncourt had always been shrouded with mystery. Nobody could decipher him. Nobody could read his thoughts. In the many inter-realm meetings of all the leaders, this vampire master was the most silent and secretive of all. Because of this, many had been wary of him, including me.

Nobody knew how he ruled his re

ed.

"You forget, I have a lot of lady friends, brother, " he answered me smugly. "They talk and you would be amazed how much intel you could gather in each of the realms from them."

Displeasure was evident on my face upon hearing it.

"All the more reason why I steer clear of women. They don't have any filters in their mouths."

I hurried my steps, intent on ending our conversation that instant. When I reached the entrance portal, the butler lowered his head and gestured to the foyer.

"Your Majesty, King Aero, I would like to extend my master's happiness to have you in his abode. I would be honored to lead you to his meeting room."

"No, that's not necessary, " I shook my head. "I'm sure he knows why we came here. I don't want to waste my precious time, so release the wom—"

'Brother, ' Elijah mind-linked me suddenly, 'Call her by her name or refer to her as your queen wife. You know the consequence already if you won't.'

I released a long, controlled sigh.

"I'm here for my...wife—the Queen of Phanteon. Send her out this instant, " I rephrased, putting careful consideration on the woman's fake title.

"That's not the proper way to behave in my territory, King Aero, " I suddenly heard Hale's disembodied voice linger all over the foyer. It wouldn't have been a big deal. However, I could scent the woman's smell sticking on the dark lord.

Right away, my wolf senses reacted and went into overdrive.
