Chapter 8-Joshua's POV
Short chapter today, sorry guys, #writers block :s
The day started like any other after George and Snow bonded. The knock definitely sent a shock, but when a tattered Queen Celestial got pushed onto my doorstep, I nearly had a heart attack. I could see George looking between us, trying to get the feeling of this meeting and relation between me and the past queen. The queen looked at me in despair, and spoke the most confusing words I have ever heard.
“Elena… she’s one of you… her father… wasn’t Easton…”, That alone surprised and confused me, the first princess’s father wasn’t the king, but wait... what if her real father was the reason she was a werwolf! But she wasn’t done, “protect her… Chloe… took-” Her words are cut off by a sword running through her body. Me and George look up and snarl at this new face, blond hair and green eyes glaring back at us, her extravagant dress now covered in blood. Her glare turns into a sneer, “The queen never knew when to stop talking.”
All the sudden, Snow comes barreling out and stabs the girl in the stomach, but her eyes widen as she pulls out her hand again, completely clean. The girl sneers even more, laughing hauntily, “I knew you would be here you stupid rat.” The guards quickly grab Snow, and I have to hold George back as he tries to save her.
“SNOW!” He yells, struggling against me. The girl turns back to us, an evil look in her eye.
“She told you her name was Snow huh?” She laughs evilly, “Well she lied to you, GUARDS MAKE HER SHOW HER FACE TO THE ONES SHE LIED TO.” The guards quickly turn Snow, and she looks at the ground guiltily, “This girl is the true heir to the throne, Miss Elena Marze Toshce. I did of course take the throne though, so now she is nothing, but I can’t take any chances of her making a rebellion.” She turns away, “Off we go my dears.” As they get into the carriage, I can’t help but feel betrayed.
“Well she lied to you, GUARDS MAKE HER SHOW HER FACE TO THE ONES SHE LIED TO.” “This girl is the true heir to the throne, Miss Elena Marze Toshce. I did of course take the throne though, so now she is nothing, but I can’t take any chances of her making a rebellion.”
I watched helplessly as they took my mate away, each step the horses took felt like another mile between us. I fell to my knees after they were out of sight, I didn’t know what to believe anymore. My mate had lied to me, my soulmate hadn’t trusted me enough to even tell me her real name. For the first time in a long time, I cried, my tears making the dirt a dark magenta color, I stopped crying, confused. I wiped a tear away and looked at it, blood, I realized too late as I shakily stood up and darkness clouded my vision, Poison, the sword must’ve scraped me. I finally passed out, my pains fading away.
