Adrian's POV

"Well done my lord, you'll be a professional archer by the time I'm 80", Dimitri say's playfully.

"and I'll be 75", commented Eddie.

It would be funny if I wasn't so irritated already, for the last two weeks I've been training in archery and have yet to hit the bull's-eye even once. I had taken it upon myself to learn such skill—to add to my long list of talents and charisma.

"Oh, hahahaha ya that is funny ya, yall should be fuckin comedians and shit", I snapped.

"just wait, one day I will be a master and I, Adrian Ivashkov, prince of the Moroi realm, God to all women , and If I may also add a man who can hold his liquor better than all of you, will no longer need you two because I will beat up anyone who tries messin with me, with my bear hands", I said proudly placing my hands on hips, chest out, and chin up.

"I thought your hands didn't do manual labor", smirked Eddie.

I glared at eddie for a few moments before saying "shut up". Both Dimitri and Eddie laughed and I couldn't help but laugh to.

Dimitri Belikov and Eddie Castille have been my trusted bodyguards, and friends, for the last 3 years.

Eddie I have known since childhood, his family sold him to us as a slave when he was eight years old and I had been eleven at the time but I saw that he had good potential and convinced my parents to let him train as a guardian,and we had become the best of friends ever since. after a few years he has become more advanced than the other boys his age and I was impressed. When he had turned thirteen and I was only sixteen I had decided to go out and buy some alcohol, (spirit was getting to me) and I brought Eddie with me as cover up and made it seem like we were just going to "hang out". We were coming out of the store and went down an alley when two strigoi came out and attacked us. I barely had time to even think about running before one of them grasped my neck before he could get a chance to "drink" Eddie managed to grab him and punch him and all I could do was watch as Eddie danced with them and he made his kills by throwing them down a cliff at the same time, and from that day forward I made Eddie as my permanent guardian. My parents gladly gave their blessing and gratitude.

"come now Adrian don't beat yourself up, I'm sure you'll get it tomorrow…or next week, or month, or year", Dimitri said jokingly.

"Ya ya ya, ill show you, ill show everybody", I said.

"I'm sure you will"

Dimitri was an entirely different story.

I met him through my parent's; they said that I could use the extra protection since strigoi numbers are growing rapidly. I didn't really need him but my parents are stubborn so what they say goes. He was a good guardian and made him welcome I and in turn he was friendly and I held much respect for him.

Until, Rose happened.

Rose Hathaway was my sisters Jill and Lissa's guardian; they have known each other since childhood as well and have sworn to protect them too. I had been admiring her from a distance for a while until I summoned the courage to ask her out, and she had said yes. I thought everything was going well until I noticed she was spending a little too much time with him for my comfort. Then the day came when she told me she just wanted to be friends and that she loved Belikov.

I was furious, hurt, and betrayed not by, one but two people I trusted and have come to care for. In the beginning I tolerated Dimitri's presence and avoided Rose; my mother sat me down and did her best to comfort me, at first I wouldn't listen but what she said next made me think twice: "If you will not forgive them for them, forgive them for you. I will not sit back and watch my son succumb to grief, move on with your life and one day you will meet someone with a heart of gold, who will love you for you, this I promise you, my son."

I thought long and hard about what she said and thus I told them that I forgave them and that I would not hold this against them. It has been nearly a year since then and I have made my peace, but I'll admit it does still hurt sometimes to see them together because it made me wish I had someone to love and who loves me; sure it's fun to flirt and party with other girls but I was still lonely.

"Ok, guys let's call it a day, I'm hot, tired, sweaty, and hot", I said

Eddie was going to gather the arrows on the ground (all from missing) but then glanced back, "you said 'hot' twice".

"Ya I know, the first 'hot' meant good looking hot, and the last one was heat hot," I grinned.

"Of course", Eddie and Dimitri said together.

"hey, I've been working hard and deserve a break, plus I 'am' good lookin"

Dimitri and Eddie shook their heads in amusement and muttered 'typical'

"I cant even begin to imagine what this kingdom will be like with 'him' for a king when his time comes", Eddie jokes.

"Me Either", Dimitri states.

"I will the greatest king that has ever lived, and the most dashing, and I will explain it in song, oh and feel free to join in."

(ominous music plays in the background—I Just Can't Wait to Be King)


I'm gonna be a mighty king, so enemies beware!


I've never seen a king of beasts

With quite so little hair


I'm gonna be the main event

Like no king was before

I'm brushing up on looking down

I'm working on my roar


Thus far a rather uninspiring thing


Oh, I just can't wait to be king!


No one saying do this


Now when I said that-


No one saying be there


What I meant was-


No one saying stop that


What you don't realize-


No one saying see here

Eddie and Dimitri-

Now see here!


Free to run around all day


That's definitely out-


Free to do it all my way!


I think it's time that you and I

Arranged a heart-to-heart


Kings don't need advice

From little hornbills for a start


If this is where the monarchy is headed

Count me out

Out of service, out of Africa

I wouldn't hang about


This child is getting wildly out of wing


Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

Everybody look left


Everybody look right

Everywhere you look I'm-

Standing in the spotlight

Eddie and Dimitr-

Not yet

Let every creature go for broke and sing

Let's hear it in the herd and on the wing

It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling


Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

Oh, he just can't wait to be king!

Oh, I just can't wait...

Just can't wait

To be king!

Dimitri, Eddie, and I were standing together side by side arms and legs stretched out smiling like fools.

"Well that was a mouthful", I said, "but seriously, I am tired as hell so lets bounce."

And so, we were on our way back to court.
