I still can't believe it. Why would Seelie try to kill me. I honestly did nothing to her and even though she tried to kill me she didn't deserve to be kicked out of the Resistance. Yes, I said it. Kicked out, banned, thrown out, whatever word you wanna call it. They made the decision over a very private meeting that made the whole Resistance stand on edge. Jace was the one that woe everybody over. He said that it could happen again and that Seelie couldn't be trusted anymore, but they put in my consideration as well. I didn't want anything brutal or something she didn't deserve, but this,this is almost as cruel. They kicked her out, so she's leaving her family and friends behind. I know that I should be happy that she's leaving because she was basically a whiny bitch, but I'm not cruel like my father and brother. But there's nothing I can do now, they made their decision.
I was sitting in the Dining Hall in the most terrible mood ever, angrily chomping down on my food.
''Are you okay, Princess?'' Simon sat down next to me with the same tray of food.
''You know I don't like people calling me that.'' I proclaimed.
''I know, I just wanted you to talk." He chuckled slightly.
''So you finally want to talk to your mission.'' I sneered.
His flinched and for a second I felt bad, but only for a second.
''Listen, Clary you were not just some mission that I needed to complete. Well it started out like that.'' He said truthfully.
"What do you mean ''it started out like that'' in my opinion it still is.'' I said.
"No it's not. Listen at first I thought you were some arrogant, know-it-all Princess, but I realized that that wasn't the case at all. You were nice and sweet and kind to the servants. I didn't expect you to be like this, so Unprincessey.'' He wrinkled his nose in disgust.
I couldn't help it. I burst out laughing. It was the kind of laugh my father would scold me for, but I couldn't help it. It was just the word and how he said it. A second later Simon joined me in the laughter and we both ended up out of breath with tears in our eyes.
"I'm sorry. It just hurt to think that you were just my friend because of a mission." I wiped the tears from my eyes.
"No, Clary. You're more than that. You mean way more than some silly mission.'' He said.
I smiled and hugged him. He hugged me back tightly. When we separated smiled at each other and ate some more.
"So there still going to kick Seelie out?'' I said slowly.
''Yeah. She almost killed you, Clary. What if Jace wasn't there when he was. You would be dead by now. You almost died a few days ago. Clary, I can't lose you.'' Simon quaked.
''I know and you won't'' I remarked.
He smiled sadly, ''You can't be so sure about that, Clary.''
''No, I know that you won't lose me. Do you wanna know why?'' I asked.
"Why?" He asked, drinking his orange juice.
I stood out of my seat; putting my hands on my hips, "Because I am the one Kissed by Angels."
He laughed out loud, "That's the first time you even acknowledge it.''
"Well I'm coming to terms with what I am.'' I said shyly.
"That's my girl.'' He winked, ''Now since we're back on good terms. What's going on with you and Jace?"
"Whoa whoa whoa whoa not so fast miss Sizzy?'' I joked.
''Sizzy?'' He had a confused look on his face, but his cheeks are tinged with pink.
''Sizzy. It's you and Isabelle's name put together." I laughed.
"Whatever, Morgenstern." He rolled his eyes.
''Hey, where is everybody. They should be here already." I said looking around.
"Well Jace, Alec, Luke, and Jon were looking for Seelie to get on with the trial and I don't know where Izzy or Ms. Fray.'' He told me munching on bread.
The trial. It was going to be held in front of the whole resistance. Luke said it was to show power and what would happen if anyone steps out of line and tries to hurt the Princess slash Kissed by Angels. It was gonna happen as soon as they can get everything straight. Me and Simon finished our breakfast and went to go look for everyone. Ten minutes later we found all of them still in the a tent. What Simon calls the War Hut because they talk about war and war strategy.
Jace made a beeline straight towards me, "Hi, how are you feeling?''
''A little bit better, thanks." I blushed.
He smiled; leaned forward and kissed my forehead softly, and gently wrapped his strong arms around me, ''I'm glad.'' He whispered in my ear and I shivered.
"Soo, umm, when are we gonna have the trial?" I asked.
"Well we already notified everyone about the trial and we have to make sure everything is in place so we're gonna have it about midday." Luke calculated.
"So I guess you have everything all planned out." I muttered.
"Clary, sweetie." Jocelyn said, " I know you don't want to do this but what if she tries again? You have to make sure everybody knows that you are strong and capable of anything. You're special sweetie." She said dearly.
''You sound like a Queen." I stated.
"Well I was a Princess just like you once upon a time. I know what it's like to hold a burden on your shoulders." She chimed.
I smiled softly, " Thank you, umm, Mother." I acknowledge softly.
She had tears in her eyes, " It's been years since I heard you say that, sweetie." She wiped her tears with the back of her hand.
''I'm sorry for the mean things I said earlier. I was just hurt and confused." I replied.
"It's okay, honey. I understand. I knew you would resent me for leaving you with those horrid monsters, but you're safe now, Clary." She pulled me closer in a hug. IT felt so good to be hugged by my mother again. I smiled and closed my eyes and laid my head on her shoulders.
"Not that I love this mother-daughter reconciliation, but we have a problem." Luke announced.
Me and my om broke our embraced to face Luke, "What's the problem?'' I asked.
''Well, we can't find Seelie." Alec said sheepishly.
''What?! What do you mean you can't find her!" I barked.
"We mean that we can't find her. She's at none of her usual places and we asked around but her friends said she already left." Jace said.
"Oh no. This is bad. This is bad bad bad!" I hyperventilated.
"It's okay, I don't think she's coming back." Jace commented.
"And why is that?" Mom questioned.
"Because one of the stable boys told me that she took a horse when she left. A horse and some food too."
I should be happy. I should be happy that she left on her own accord, but something just felt wrong. She must have left for a reason, but what was the reason she left out of the blue.
"Do you think you can track her down." I asked frantically.
" Well we could but the point is that she left. She was gonna leave anyway. This just makes it easier on everybody." Izzy said.
"Yeah. I guess so." I muttered.
''What's wrong." Luke came up to me and gently put a hand on my back.
"Something just feels wrong." It sounded like I was whining.
Luke gave me a confused look then he asked, "What does it feel like?"
I gave him a confused look but said, "It feels like a gut feeling, like something that I can't ignore or explain."
" That's your powers trying to tel you something. I've heard that some people who were Kissed by Angels could tell the future or something that was gonna happen before anybody knew. So this is your powers trying to tell you that something is wrong with Seelie's departure." Luke eyes shined as he spoke with confidence.
Jace eyebrows furrowed, "Are you sure."
"Positive." Luke said strongly.
''Now, Clary I know that we had problems with your powers before, but you have to use them to see what Seelie is up too." Luke put his hands gently on my shoulders.
I hung my head in shame,"But I don't know how."
"All you have to do is practice. What happened was just a bump in the road, but I know you can do it." His eyes shined with love and compassion.
" Wait Luke you heard what Hodge said. She almost didn't wake up. What if it happens again." Jace argued.
"Yes, but we don't even know what Seelie is capable anymore. What if she does something; what if she tells the wrong person our location. We could all die." Luke said.
'' So could Clary. She cold never wake up or die. We don't know the extent of her powers. We don't know what her powers could do if she does the wrong thing." A vein on Jace's neck started to show.
" I'll do it." I said cutting them off.
"What?! But Clary think about what could-'' I cut Jace off.
"Jace, I am not some little girl that needs cuddling. I can do this." I held my chin up.
It looked like Jace was about to say something, but he clenched his jaw in silence and defiance.
"Okay, I'll do it . Just tell me what to do and I'll do it." I said in the silence.
"We can't tell you what to do like we said. A person Kissed by Angels come every 100 years so we don't know much about them." Simon said.
''Okay." I moved and at down in one of the wooden chairs.
"But what can we do to help." Simon patted my shoulder.
"Just silence. I need silence to concentrate." I said spoke.
"You got it, Biscuit.'' Magnus said.
They all went and sat comfortably, and i sat criss-crossed on the chair.
"Are you sure you want to do this?" Jon asked.
"Yes, I'm sure." I said confidently.
He kissed my forehead and sat next to me to my left, Jace sat next to me to my right with the same look from before.
I shook my head and tried to relax. I took a deep breath and closed my eyes and looked deep inside myself. I didn't expect to find anything. After what feels like a half an hour I was gonna give up when I felt something like a spark in me, like something bubbling deep inside of me. I reached for that sensation and held on to it for dear life. When I felt like I was ready I let the sensation go free. It was like a tidal wave that nearly rocked me from the chair I was sitting it. My eyes opened wide and I gasped loudly.
"CLARY!" Jace exclaimed.
But I didn't see Jace. I didn't see the War Tent around me or feel the chair under me. My eyes and my senses clouded over as my mind transported to Seelie. I saw her riding quickly. But where?
My legs and bottom hurt from riding all night and day. I was looking for revenge and I was gonna get it. Princess Clarissa doesn't know what she got herself into. Who does she think she is to just walk up in here and take my Jacey-poo away from me. Yes, I tried to kill her, but that was my only option. I saw the way Jace looked at her when she passed out. He looked like his whole life just ended and he couldn't go on anymore. How cliche was that! Jace is suppose to be my boyfriend, my love, my husband, my bearer of children, but the little wench just came in and stole him away.
I rode fast and hard through the familiar forest, trying to find some resemblance as to how far I am to my destination. After a little while longer I found a twisted tree. This mean I'm a little less than 10 miles away. A cruel smile graced my face as I laughed out loud. I stopped to rested and eat my meager meal of water, two day old bread, and some salted meat. I ate it harshly. My anger still fueled my hate for Clary and the urge to kill her. Why did she have to come and ruin everything. I only joined the resistance because i had no where else to go. My family died in a raid when I was 12 and for about a year I walked aimlessly around until I came across the resistance camp. They took me in, nurtured me, made me one of them. I was the talk when I grew into an woman. Men wanted me. Girls envied me. I was the talk and guys wanted me left and right. Then Clarissa came and ruined all of that. She suddenly became the talk. All of they guys and girls loved her unique look of red and green and pale. I thought Jace would see that she's a evil little whore. But he turned out to be just like them.
I knew that when Jace stopped me from killing her that he was too far gone. She had wrapped her freckled fingers around Jace's neck and wouldn't let go. I also knew that I was in major trouble and that they were either gonna kill me or banish me forever. So I just made the decision for them and left.
I finished eating and got back on my horse and rode more. I didn't want to top til I made it to my destination. After a while the forest got less dense and was easier to ride in. I smiled as I knew that I was getting closer and closer with each step. I rode longer and longer until I made it to the outskirts Palace. Yes, I said it. the Palace in Idris. Where the King was. I was going to tell him everything about the resistance and where Clary is.
I left my horse on the outskirts and started walking towards the castle. I didn't expect to just go right in and talk to the King right away. No,no I have a plan. I made sure I looked a wreck before the guards stationed outside saw me. I limped out of the words, coughing profusely. The guards looked at me in confusion as I limped towards them.
"Please, good sir. Can you help me?" I said sadly.
"State your business, peasant." The guards said coldly, but the look on their eyes shows sympathy.
"Please sir. I-i-i need help. It involves the King." I whimpered.
The one I was talking to cocked his head,"What about the King?"
I swallowed loudly, "Please good sir. It involves the Lost Princess and the Resistance."
Their eyes widened and they looked at each other, "Stay right here." He said. He went into the castle walls and left me and the other guard alone, in silence.
"Are you okay,miss. Do you need anything?" He asked. His eyes kind and sweet.
"I would love some water and some food, good solider. I hope King Valentine will let me see him so I can tell them of the horrid Resistance and what has become of those monsters." I shivered noticeably.
The guard gave me a confused look, "I'm sorry, miss, but King Valentine died a month ago." He bowed his head in respect.
My eyes widened. The King is dead?
"What did he die of?" I asked curiously.
"Well the doctors said it was demon pox, m'lady.'' He told me.
Demon pox is a horrible way to die. They said it starts out as a cold and a sweat, and then the patient starts to talk to nothing, losing his or her sanity slowly but surely. They said that you die from the inside out and that you die painfully.
"Oh my. I hope he died peacefully." I said in sadness.
"The late King was a strong man. He didn't die like the rest of them." He said proudly.
"So I take it that Prince Sebastian is the new King of Idris." I asked.
"Yes and he's been doing and excellent job." He smiled proudly.
"What has he been doing." I inquired.
"He's still looking for Princess Clarissa and he's been trying to find the Resistance as well. Also, he's been going down southern Idris trying to keep everything tight around there. I hear they been getting pretty roudy and tough down there."
"Oh, well I'm sure he will he an amazing King." I marveled.
The guard came back and told me,"The King will see you now."
"Thank you, good soldiers." I curtsied and the guards bowed to me.
I walked into the the castles walls and it took my breath away. I didn't know it was so big and beautiful. The castle had tons of painting about angels and their family. The hallways were steaks with gold and silver. I was too busy looking at my surroundings that I didn't see another guard in front of me.
"I will take you to King Sebastian." His cold voice said.
He began walking stiffly and quickly down the hall. For once I was glad I was tall so that I could keep up with him easily. We went through corners and hallways until we finally stopped in front of two big mahogany doors with the royal family crest symbol on it. A star.
The guard knocked on the door and we waited until we heard a grunt that sounded like a come in. The guard opened the door for me. I cautiously entered the room. Keeping up the act. But I must say that this place is amazing. I have never seen this kind of wood before, or this type of furniture. Everything was shiny, to the furniture all the way to the tapestries and walls.
In front of a huge desk was the new crowned king. King Sebastian. I've heard that he was a handsome man, but I didn't expect this. Messy, silver hair that framed his chiseled face and dark, almost black eyes. His clothes were stretched tightly around his broad shoulders and chest. Then next I saw the woman next to him. She was tall and had beautiful curves, beautiful hair, and bright blue eyes.
I curtsied, "King Sebastian, I am graced that you decided to see me."
He cocked his lips into a smile, "Yes, I wouldn't turn down a fellow citizen of Idris, now would I?"
"N-n-no, your highness." I stuttered.
"Now, my dear, what is your name?" The lady next to the king asked.
"It's Seelie ummm miss-?"
"Lilith. Lilith Darkblood, your future queen of Idris." She exclaimed proudly.
"Ohh well congratulations." I stammered.
"Now enough of pleasantries. My guards told me that you know something about my sweet dear sister and the resistance."He asked.
"Yes, your highness. I do." I said quickly.
"Well then tell me what you know." He went and sat down at the large desk.
"Well Princess Clarissa is in league with the resistance." I stated.
His face showed shock as he registered what I said, "Now Seelie why would you think my sweet sister would do something like that?" He asked. His voice sad and childlike.
"Because your highness I saw her. Now I must be truthful to my King. I was a part of the resistance and she came with us because she said she wanted to become Queen of Idris and since she's the chosen one-" He stood up so quickly I stopped.
"So you're saying that my sister is the one Kissed by Angels. Also, she wants to overthrow me." He said slowly and carefully.
"Yes, your highness. It's all true." I said.
He looked at Lilith, almost like they were talking to each just by looking at each other, and then the King smiled and spoke, "Seelie, you have done a great civic duty today."
I blushed, "I just want to do what's best for my country."
He nodded, and smiled. He took long measured steps towards me. He took my face in his hands. I shivered.
"Now, my dear Seelie, please tell me. Where can I find the resistance?" He requested.
My mind was force inside my body that I actually did fall out of the chair. Jon and Jace quickly came to my rescue.
I can't believe what I just saw. What I just heard. My father is dead. Sebastian is king. And Lilith. I remember her very vaguely and I remembered I never really liked her. Now she's gonna be Queen. Seelie. She told them about me, the resistance, out location. What are we gonna do?
I didn't know they were calling my name until Jace was repeatedly shaking me back and forth. A look of hopelessness on his face.
Clary! Are you okay?" He said frantically.
It took me a while to speak, " Yea I'm fine. What happened?"
"You were talking and screaming in some strange language, and then you fell out of the chair." Jon said, rubbing my back in soothing circles.
"What did you see?" Mom asked.
"I saw Seelie. She was riding and the she came to the palace. She asked for the King. She told Sebastian everything. Me, the resistance. Where we are. Everything." Tears were about to spill over on my face as I tried to stay calm.
"This is bad. This is bad bad." Luke muttered.
'What are we gonna do. Seelie just told him everything." I said.
"Don't worry. I'll think something. But we need to evacuate now. If they leave now then they will get here in a week or two, perhaps a few days at most. So we have to leave now." Luke thought quickly.
"Wait. Clary you said Seelie told Sebastian everything. Why didn't she go to Valentine.'' Mom inquired.
It took me a moment to speak, " Sebastian is the new King now. Valentine died a month ago due to demon pox." I said quietly.
Mom gasped, but she did not shed no tears, and neither did I.
SO I WILL BE UPDATING ON FRIDAY NOW I WILL TRY MY HARDEST TO UPDATE REGUARLY. DUE TO SCHOOL BUT I WILL TRY MY HARDEST
