74. Queen of the Onyx Dragon
I walk around the enormous rose garden. Smiling, I stare at the blue sky above. It’s been five years since we moved to Euticia. Every horde around the world had moved to the empire. In the beginning, it was hard. Many disagreements came up, but I could put each of them in their place. Using my powers, I could easily tame them. Now we have elders as our council, and old kings and princes still hold their titles. But the only two rulers were Dimitri and me.
The Onyx Dragon and his queen, who was once a slave, I smile, remembering how long we have all come. Dimitri has learned and changed a lot. While I learn to live my life like it was the last one. After moving here, Dimitri and I prolonged my pregnancy. I know that knowing the truth was hard, but we cared for everyone and their happiness. And I still wanted Damian to find his family. Thankfully, he finally could find his mate. A human, to be more specific, a princess from a neighboring kingdom. Never in my life did I expect to see him so happy. Now he had two dragons with her. Hybrids, in other words, and twins. My dream.
I knew what Alarik mentioned would come true. I could only bear one baby, but I still was happy. I could at least get to hold the little one.
Taking a seat on the grass, I laid down and looked up. It was summer, and the sun felt good. Closing my eyes, I try to relax when a shadow covers the brightness. I opened my eyes and found Dimitri hovering over my body.
“Hi,” I smiled.
“What are you doing?” Dimitri asked as he looked at me.
“Nothing, just getting some warm sun,” I said, giggling, “I thought you were busy.”
“Was,” Dimitri smirked, “I have some other plans now.”
Leaning, he kissed me. I laughed as he started pecking my face.
“Stop it,” I said as he looked down at me. He’s now short black hair made his chiseled face more defined. Reaching for him, I pull him down. Dimitri lets all his weight fall on me as he hides his face in the crook of my neck. Feeling his breathing, I giggle.
“It tickles,” I mumble, laughing.
“I know,” Dimitri said, smiling. Then I felt his lips. He kissed my neck softly. Featherlike kisses trailed down my neck until they reached my chest.
Pulling on my dress, I squeal.
“What are you doing?” It shocked me.
“What do you think?” Dimitri muttered as he sucked on my nipple. I bit my lip as I felt his other hand reach for my leg. Then, lifting it, he gets between my legs.
I could feel his hardened shaft against my wet pussy.
“Dimitri, we are outside,” I breathed.
“I made everyone leave the garden and this side of the palace,” Dimitri said. I stared at him, shocked. Was he serious?
Pulling hard on my dress, he rips it.
“DIMITRI!” I retorted. He just laughed at it.
Taking his shirt off, he leans down. Our bodies together as I feel his warm chest against mine. Then, softly, he looked down at me. Eyes full of love.
“Have I told you how much I love you?” Dimitri said, making me tense up. Since we parted ways years ago, we never mentioned that phrase again. Every time we spent together was different. And even if we both knew, we never said it aloud.
Shaking my head, I look away.
“I love you, Valkyrie,” Dimitri suddenly said, making me look at him embarrassedly. I felt so overwhelmed as I looked at his golden eyes. “I love you so much. That I don’t know what I will do the day you are gone.”
I felt my eyes sting with tears as my heartbeat erratically. I knew I would live until a specific time, and so would he.
Gulping down, I nervously smiled.
“I love you, Dimitri,” I said as tears slid down my cheeks, “I love you so much.”
Saying nothing back, Dimitri leaned over and kissed me. Then, circling my arms, I pulled him until I couldn’t breathe in his hold.
Breathless, he backs away, his eyes full of lust. Undoing his trousers, he reached for my undergarments and pulled them. I inhale sharply as I feel him penetrate me. I closed my eyes and moaned as he thrust himself deeply. He was stretching my walls.
Moving slowly, Dimitri thrusts into me. I open my eyes and lock them.
Dimitri never moved his golden eyes away from mine. Moving in sync, I moan loud. I felt him getting bigger inside me as he started moaning. Grunts and moans were the only sound in the enormous garden.
Reaching for my nipple, Dimitri sucks. Slow bites made me arch my back as the delicious sensations spread all over my body.
Feeling my orgasm close, Dimitri quickens his pace. Reaching for my hands, he puts them over my head, and he hovers over my body.
He thrust himself until he hit my walls. I called out his name as my body quivered. Convulsing, I scream his name loud, followed by his orgasm. Cuming inside me, I feel his shaft twitch. I pant as he falls over my chest. Closing my eyes, I fall asleep.
I felt him whisper I love you near my ear. Then, falling asleep, I smiled back at him.
Sitting on the chamber’s floor, I look at the trees moving. A warm breeze graced my skin as I sighed with a smile.
Hearing a flapping sound, I opened my eyes and saw Alarik.
His eyes looked down at me.
“Are you doing well?” I asked, smiling.
“Better than you, my queen,” Alarik said, making me chuckle. I knew what he was talking about. Today when I woke up, I felt nauseous. I could feel that I was pregnant, meaning that his prophecy was turning its wheels.
“Am I?” I asked the question I was trying to answer to myself.
Laying down on the huge balcony, Alarik stares at me. I leaned my head against the wall as I stared back into his eyes. Then, smiling weakly, he huffs.
“Yes,” Alarik said, turning away from me. I frowned as I crook my head to the side. Was something wrong?
“Alarik?” I said, but he kept his eyes averted.
“You’re quite the one,” Alarik said growling, “I still can’t believe you did it again.”
“What are you even talking about?” I asked, sitting up correctly.
Alarik moved his head and growled.
“Years ago, when I said you wouldn’t be able to tame me, you did. You are now aware that your powers are beyond anything. And now…” Alarik said, huffing again, “now you did it again.”
“May I ask what I do again?” I asked curiously.
Looking to the side, he looks at me. A silence passed by before he spoke.
“You’re expecting twins. A boy and a girl,” Alarik said, growling.
Shocked about what he said, I sat up and smiled at him.
“I’m pregnant with twins?” I said in disbelief.
“Yes, and two strong ones. Congratulations, queen, you did it again,” Alarik said as I stood up and jumped with excitement. Not waiting for Alarik, I rushed out of the room. I needed to find Dimitri and tell him. Barging into his office, I ran up and threw myself at him. Everyone present stared at the scene in surprise.
“Valkyrie?” Dimitri said as he held me on his lap.
“I’m pregnant,” I whispered. I felt Dimitri tense up. “I’m pregnant with twins!” I said this time.
Dimitri pulled away from me as he looked at me in surprise. Then, eyes wide and mouth open, he looked at me. I smiled happily as I started laughing nervously.
“Really?” Dimitri breathed.
“Yes,” I nodded as tears started stinging my eyes, “We are expecting twins.”
Standing up with me in his arm, Dimitri hugs me and yells a yes. I started laughing as I looked around. Everyone knew they only expected me to have one. Now that I was expecting twins, it meant that maybe I could break the prophecy.
Months passed fast as my time to give birth arrived. My enormous belly makes it hard for me even to walk.
“You shall be fine,” Calandra said as I groaned at her. The twins were still not here, even though my water broke two hours ago. I’ve been pacing the chambers up and down as cramps form in my lower abdomen. Cursing, I grip Calandra’s hands tightly.
“Breath Valkyrie,” Calandra said, smiling. I glared at her.
This was the worst. Closing my eyes, I bit my lips.
Another cramp has me groaning in pain.
After some tortuous hours, I finally gave birth. The babies cried loudly as I laughed in tears. I couldn’t believe it. They were finally here. Exhausted, I reached for them. Calandra, Michael was here with me as the other two queens who have given birth several times. I smiled at both babies. Hearing the double doors open, I look up and find a Dimitri in tears. He rushed up to me and kissed my forehead.
“Look,” I said as I showed him the twins. A healthy boy and girl cried their lungs out. Dimitri started crying as he leaned his head against my forehead.
“Thank you,” Dimitri whispered as he kissed me.
“For what?” I mutter tiredly.
“For being here. For being that night on that cliff,” Dimitri said, chuckling, “If it weren’t for those bastards, I think I would have never found you. So I thank you for everything.”
I started crying again as I kissed him.
“What shall we call them?” Dimitri asked. I cleared my throat and looked at both of them.
“Briony and Maximus.”
