Separated from human civilization by a magical wall, there existed another world deep into the forest where magical creatures resided, goblins, elves, pixies, fairies were almost extinct and lived in hiding from the majority 'The Vampires'. Vampires who were the most powerful creature, a world ruled by the Vampire King and Vampire Council, members of which consisted of vampire sorcerers, sorcerers who had been turned into vampires by making the contract with the pure-blooded vampires. Werewolves who rivaled them in strength and powers, their sworn enemies lived separately between the magical world and the human world at the periphery of the forest, marking their own territories.
Placed on a high mountain was an old castle, the castle glowed with lights that night for the celebration of the Vampire king's birthday. The sound of the celebration echoed in the whole forest. Even the hidden creatures came out to celebrate their King's birth anniversary dancing along the path. The castle was loud with cheer, all the noble Vampires were lined up to wish him, all the girls awaited his presence, they were all glittered up to impress him, today was the night he was going to choose his queen.
A carriage made it's way to the castle, hearing the creak of the wheels, all the creatures ran back into their hiding place, the castle's huge gate opened for it to enter, it stopped in front of the entrance.
"Look at those fools. We arrived a little late and they dared to think they have a chance against you, my lady?" The girl helped her mistress with her dress as she stepped out of the carriage.
"That's the difference you fool, those useless fellows are supposed to arrive earlier to glorify ours." Said the other one.
"Those low lives need to learn their place, the queen has already been decided, only the official announcement remains." They reached the door of the castle. Once the door opened, a strong presence penetrated the warm atmosphere, all eyes were down and the servants practically lied flat on the floor while the nobles bowed down to her presence.
Rebecca Williams made her way inside the castle; she was the daughter of the head of the Vampire council and most suitable candidate for the Vampire Queen. At another part of the castle, there was restlessness; the king had disappeared from his own birthday party. His ministers dispatched a search team for him.
Adrian was the fifth king of the Vampire world, the kings reined for thousands of years until they found someone more worthy of the throne be it their son/ grandsons/ or further down the line.
Adrian's ancestor ruled for 3000yrs until finally he was born with dark powers, the powers superior to anyone, the same powers which kept others away from him and all his life he faced loneliness. The only one that was able to enter his world piercing the darkness around him was Gabriella Blakesley, she belonged to a powerful ancient werewolf clan ruled by the female alfa, she was born with the birthmark of the moon, making her the female alfa chosen by the moon goddess herself.
When Adrian reached their meeting place he found Gabriella staring at the full moon, the pixies were dancing around her, he smiled as he looked at his beloved, one of the pixies spotted him and stopped on her track, the others collided right into her and stabilizing themselves they scolded one another, then they all immediately bowed to their king, Gabrielle still hadn't noticed his presence, he gestured them to leave quietly, they obliged and took off, he then approached his beloved quietly and hugged her from behind.
"Happy Birthday!" She smiled as she leaned her head back. He pressed a kiss to the nape of her neck, licking the mark, his mark on her, she shivered at the sensation.
"How? I thought you were too busy staring at the moon." He groaned breathing her scent.
She turned to him and leaned in to catch his lips in a brief kiss. He pulled her in a deep kiss, parting he rested his forehead against hers.
"I can't do anything about this jealousy of yours." She smiled caressing his cheeks.
"I don't ever get it what's with you and the moon?" He rolled his eyes. "Forget that. here." He extended his hand.
"what?" She raised her brows.
"What's with that look? Do you think you can get away with it? My birthday present, where is it?"She held his hand and guided them to her belly.
He frowned. "this....is that...."
The ground shook, "Don't lose it, idiot." She slapped his back.
"I love you." He picked her up and spun around. "Thank you, this is the best gift ever." Slowly lowering her to the ground, he claimed her lips in a sweet kiss.
His happiness was short-lived when he heard the footsteps from miles away, "Damn!" he swore under his breath.
"Your soldiers have arrived, your majesty." She smiled bitterly.
"I've discussed the proposal with the council, we won't have to sneak in the dark to meet each other, very soon I'll make you my queen. You, me and our child, we'll live happily like any other family." He smiled at her.
"Is it really possible? This dream, can we live it for real? thousands of yrs of enmity, can we erase it?" She questioned.
"Our clans didn't clash in ancient times. Didn't you tell me the stories of the ancient times when our clans lived in harmony with each other?"
"Yes, but those stories were tens of thousands of years ago, now they're enemies, hunting each other that's what they live for. I'm scared, will we be hunted down like others who dared to love the opposite clan? Will our child be able to--"
"Shh." He sealed his lips with a slow and sensual kiss on her lips, breaking apart he looked into her eyes. "We'll bring the change, I am the vampire king and you're my queen, we have the support from your family, one of the most powerful clans among others. We'll have our dream turned into reality, Vampires and Werewolves, both clans will come together again, there won't be any casualties. I promise." He sealed it with a kiss on her lips, when she opened her eyes he was gone.
