< Serena >

Trying to understand Rhea's words, I recollected everything I experienced so far and yeah, somehow, not all were bad.

"True, this place is different than ours, " I started when I faced her. "It is attractive..."

'Not to mention the king, ' my mind pitched in. I inwardly groaned. Of all the things to highlight, why him?

Then I remembered one basic fact Rhea might not have known.

"If...if you want to stay, I think you can, but a word of advise, know first what kind of people you are dealing with, " I stated vaguely. If I tell her head-on that this kingdom's people including their rulers were werewolves, she'd probably think me crazy.

A small curve on her lip appeared and then I saw an undeniable recognition in her eyes.

"I know what you're trying to say, Serena. I know already what they are. They are werewolves."

My mouth gaped and I blinked many times.

"Wow, that fast?" I muttered.

She nodded and another blush, this time clearer, appeared on her cheeks.

"The crown prince...uhm...showed me."

Her eyes moved everywhere except in my direction. She looked shy and cute, and quite frankly, a bit turned on judging from the look on her face—biting her lip and all.

"O...kay, I'll leave the details for you to keep, " I sensitively stated. Although I was super curious, whatever happened to them when leaving the vampire realm was theirs to keep. I wouldn't want to pry on their privacy as much as I didn't want her to pry on mine.

"Don't you want to stay here too? I mean, Earth is still our home, but you're the queen of this kingdom, wouldn't you want to spend your time here to get to know your people more? Think of it as a vacation, " she advised, her eyes full of enthusiasm.

I sighed and lowered my chin.

"I'll think about it, Rhea. It's...it's complicated for now, " I stated, thinking of the one man that was the cause of the complication.

She nodded and took my hand. "I understand, but if you change your mind, let me know. Let's explore this world together."

I squeezed back her hands.

"How about we explore this castle first?" I offered, looking at her with beaming eyes. To tour the castle with

way."

"Hmm, that is noted then, " I affirmed.

He glanced back at Rhea again and right then and there, I saw how warm he looked at her and well...she reciprocated it the same way. They were fun to watch.

"There's going to be a banquet tonight. You two ladies are expected as special guests, " he informed.

Curious, I stepped in and asked, "Who threw a party and why?"

"The council persuaded the king, " he answered honestly, "In your honor, Queen Serena, to celebrate your recovery."

"And my...husband actually agreed?" I cleared a lump in my throat. Really?

"Of course, he would." He flashed a grin that was too suspicious for my liking.

"Right, " I muttered and rolled my eyes heavenward.

"Dress up and make yourselves even more beautiful ladies. Tonight, we will have wine, food and fun, " his eyes landed on Rhea last and again I saw some meaning to it.

I often think of what Elijah's definition of fun was, but I guess this time it involved my new friend.

"I'll see you tonight, Rhea, " he stated, taking her hand on his and then kissing it.

"Tonight it is then, Cedric, " she blushed.

These two, they were completely mesmerized with each other. I couldn't shake the feeling that Prince Elijah's existence in this kingdom influenced a big part on Rhea's decision of staying. It that was the case, it would be quite a risk, but probably even I would take that risk if it meant I'd find the man destined for me.
