Said that it was customary for the king and queen to enter together during a party, so here I was, standing behind the door of the grand ballroom, waiting for her to arrive.

Let's be clear, I was forced to do this by Phanteon's tradition. If I had control, I would never wait for that woman in any given day, time or occassion. The fact that I was still married to her under the people's eyes added to my problem. It basically prohibited me from avoiding her and unfortunately forced me into approving the council's request for a banquet in her honor.

I had been waiting for almost fucking ten minutes, scowling; my mouth drawn into a grim line; my hands tightly clenched. I had no patience over such female preparations. Such outside appearance didn't matter when their character was still rotten to the core. It had sickened me watching these stupid women flaunt their fineries in the past, it still sickened me today, and this night didn't hold any difference.

My wolf however thought otherwise. It howled inside when it felt a sudden pull behind me. I gaped, my mind turning blank when after turning around, I saw a shimmering gown float effortlessly towards me. It was in some shade of pink and blue, framed by...to my surprise...a thick white robe that spilled to the floor.

I'd recognize this robe anywhere. It was created for the queen...for the first luna...but my whore of a mother never used it because she didn't like the pureness of the color. She preferred a red robe just like my father's. That was exactly the reason why I had never worn the king's robe. It was tainted with her distasteful memory.

Hiking my sight up to the owner's face, I found my fake wife already looking at me with a serene expression of contentment. Despite my better judgment, I admitted she looked stunning.

And seeing her wear the white robe, I was beyond pleased. It indeed brought a whole new meaning to the robe's purpose. A sudden swell of pride hit me. I rushed to contain it, fearing it would manifest as a smile on my face.

"You're late, " I stated flatly, sending her a scrutinizing eye.

"Sorry to be not sorry, Your Majesty, " she replied, flashing her sly smile. "Rhea and the other maids-in-waiting got carrie

ed to howl and break someone's bone. I wanted to start a fucking fight...

'Calm now, brother, I could see your sour face surfacing all the way from here, ' my brother's words filled my head in an instant. I turned to the source and saw him sitting at the left side of the ballroom, in a table next to Alpha Kade, the alpha of Jaxis, a place in my kingdom where combat and skills were honed for my army.

With the two of them together in one table, the female population in the party were already in chaos. It was sickening to watch how they were both flocked and fawned over.

'You actually still have the time to watch me when there are lots of leeches there with you, ' I grounded, mind-liking him.

He snickered at me and slightly shook his head. 'No, brother, I only got my eyes set on one woman only now.'

'Huh, that's a first, ' I answered mockingly, then rerouted my eyes to the numerous guests before me. Sure enough, my bubbling anger earlier had dissipated a little because of Elijah's interruption. I was calmer now. I was more in control of my emotions. Instead of entertaining my hatred of the queen's throne, I decided to ignore it, and yes, as a result, ignore her too.

I ate and she ate. Not me or her decided to start a conversation. I let the music and the noise of the guests bury the silence that surrounded us. For a moment it was all good until a certain gate crasher arrived and made my lycan side stand on guard.

It was Lord Ziur fucking Hale Lioncourt.
