This is my first story, so please be nice. Right now Meghan is at the Seelie Court scrubbing dishes. Rose can see everything Meghan can, you'll find out why in the story. Rose is half Seelie and half Unseelie, Oberon is her father.
'I cant believe, Puck would actually let her come her,' I thought to myself, 'he can't actually be that stupid, but than again we are talking about Puck.'
"Frost, dear could you come here," my 'guardian' Mad (the ice queen) called from across the room. I started walking over, I hated it when she called me, Frost, my name was Rose, not Frost.
"How may I help you my queen?" I asked bowing first.
"Ash is back, I want you to help him get ready for Elysium," she ordered.
"Yes, my queen," I said, bowing again and moving toward the door.
"Oh and one more thing," Mab said right as I reached the door.
"Yes, my queen?" I asked.
"You will be coming with us,"she said waiting for my reaction.
"Thank you, my queen," was all I said, spending 15 years in the Unseelie Court has given me the the power to keep my emotions well hidden. I bowed again and moved out of the room. I let out a sigh of relief, Ash was the only person I could actually act like myself around, he was my best friend.
**outside Ash's room**
I knocked on the door to make sure he was inside and not asleep. A groan answered me.
"I thought I said that I didn't want any servants to disturb me," Ash's voice answered. I smirked and opened the door.
"Since when am I a servant?" I snorted after I closed the door.
"Oh Rose its you,"he said with no emotion at all. I was used to it.
"What's wrong with you?" I asked as I put some water in a bowl and soaked a towel in it, "did you let your prey escape again?"
"Yes," he answered quietly. I watched him take his shirt off and I handed him the towel,
"I was joking," I mumbled. I went to his closet and look for a worthy tuxedo for him to wear.
"I know," he said has he dried himself off," I wasn't trying to be rude, but something interesting happened today."
"Really what?" I asked though I already knew the answer, I had seen it.
"There was a girl,"he answered.
"So?" I asked this time truly curious. A girl has never stopped him before.
"I didn't want to kill her," he said even more quietly. I stopped what I was doing and turned around to look at him.
"Winter or Summer?" I was trying to make sure it was my sister he was talking about.
"Summer," he answered. This was strange, very strange and dangerous, dangerous for my sister and I didn't want her getting hurt.
"Oh," I turned back around and picked out a black tuxedo. I walked over to him and handed it to him. I took the towels and went to hang them up.
"Your mother has requested I go with you, to Elysium I mean," I said breaking the silence. Ash looked up, surprise passing quickly over his face but disappearing.
"Why?" he asked.
"I don't know, but I have to go get ready," I said stopping by the door," I'll see you in the throne room."
Than I left.
**in my room**
I examined myself in the mirror. I was in a floor length black spaghetti strap dress. I was wearing a black shawl with it. My hair was hanging freely down my back resting at about my chest. I didn't look like myself, I actually looked kinda pretty, I didn't like it. I had on about 3 inch black strap heels. My face looked paler than it normally was and my pointed ears stuck out of the sides of my all this getup I still had one thing that reminded me of who I was, my mother's dagger. Oberon had given it to me in secret and Mab didn't know about it. I had it hidden by a strap under my dress, I cloud feel it pressing into my thigh. I looked at myself once more and sighed, there was nothing I could do, I was just nervous to see my father after 15 years and my sister for the first time. My father, King Oberon had given me to Mab as a signal of peace when I was a baby. After my mother refused to marry him and give me up, he had her killed and gave me to the monster of a queen that I lived with now. I knew that I was young, but living in the Unseelie Court made me grow up faster than I was supposed to. Finally after what seemed like hours of staring at myself in the mirror, I went to the door and opened it. I almost screamed when I saw Prince Sage standing there. He seemed surprised to see me too but of course his faced changed expression rather quickly, back to it's normal blank mask. He looked me up and down with a small movement of the head. Suddenly Sage's wolf, which I had decided to call Wolfy since I've heard him called a specific name,was nudging the back of my leg making me stumble forward almost into Sage.
"Excuse me, Prince Sage," I said politely moving around him. He seemed taken back than he moved out of my way.
"Ah, yes," he said some what awkwardly. After a long silence I decided to speak up.
"May I help you with something, your majesty?" I asked keeping my head forward.
"I was going to ask you something?"he said sounding almost normal.
"If I forgot to do any of my chores, I apologize, I did not know I missed something," I said as panic started rise in my stomach, if I forgot to do any of my chores Mab would not feed me for over a month.
"No, no you did everything it was a different kind of question,"he said a little to quickly for my liking, it gave me the idea that he was nervous.
"Than ask it,"I said as politely as I could.
"Will you go to Elysium with me?" he asked. That question caught me off guard, I stopped walking and looked at him. He stopped walking and looked at me, in what seemed like a little panic.
"Yes," was all I could say. I saw all his panic go away and be replaced with joy. He offered me his hand and I took it, on the inside I was smiling but on the outside I had to remain froze.
**in the throne room**
As we arrived in the throne room there were only two people on it, waiting, and one of those people just happened to be my least favorite person in the entire world. Sage let go of my hand and went to stand next to Ash. I stood by myself until Rowan walked over to me.
"Well hello there Princess Frost,"he said with a lazy smirk on his face.
"Can I help you with something Prince Rowan?"I asked faking my polite voice.
"Actually yes, I was wondering if you would go to Elysium with me?"he asked in a sly voice.
"I can't I'm already going with Prince Sage," I said moving away from him. He grabbed my hand so I couldn't move away anymore.
"Really? Are you sure your not making that up?" he asked all sneaky like, I could feel him trying to glamour me into changing my mind.
"Brother, you know what mother said about using glamour on the princess," Sage's voice suddenly came from behind me. Rowan let go of my hand immediately.
"I did not know the queen had a rule about trying to glamour me," I states actually surprised that she'd try to protect me from something.
"Oh, right sorry, i didn't know you were into her like that," Rowan remarked as they both ignored me.
"Well it is only polite not to take another mans lady, you should know all about that shouldn't you," Sage replied. I saw that that remark hit its mark, Rowan straightened and walked away. I was surprised, not only that Rowan left without a fight but also that Sage would make a remark like that and call me his lady. Just than the door opened and Mab walked in.
"Well look at that all my children in one place, how nice," she said after we bowed. I was even more surprised now that she called me one of her children."Well don't just stand there, come on into the carriage.
I was both excited and nervous, I couldn't wait. I could sense danger close by but I'll have to deal with that when it comes to that.
Well here is my story, well the first part of it anyway I'll write more. Let me know what you think!
