(I have to give the disclaimer now. Adult language and content. Not intended for anyone younger than eighteen years old.)
I woke up to a bright day. The sun was streaming in through my curtains, and I laid there in bed thinking of what will happen today.
I am now seventeen. When the clock hit 2:31:50 in the morning. I was seventeen. It’s been almost seven months since my dad made that bargain to hand me over to the Lanstin’s. He kept his word and he brought in several women who where shifters to train me on what is to be a shifter female.
There were the werewolves, were lionesses, were jaguars and the lists goes on. The main theme was submission and protection of the children I will have.
I don’t want to have any children. I want to live my life first. Selfish for me to say that but it’s the truth.
Along with this constant training I could not have a boyfriend. None. I always wondered if it was because I told Marcel that I did have an encounter. I will never know because I never seen him again after that night.
I sat up in bed and decided to put on an outfit that I have had hidden for months. The top was soft golden yellow that plunged down into a heart. Accentuating my breasts. They fully developed and they looked like something to be jealous of.
I put on a matching a line skirt that stopped above my knees. I took a quick shower, put on a scent that is supposed to be acceptable to the were species and got dressed.
My hair was shoulder length and curly and I painted my lips in a red so deep that my father will either yell at me to take it off or shock him into silence. No liner for my eyes. My lashes were full enough to stand alone. A little shimmer to my eyes and decided I looked grown up.
My ears dawned jewelry that my mom left. She was a rebel with golden ear cuffs with filigree stye design hugging the rim of her ears.
I wore a thumb and a pinky ring on my right hand that matched the earring, and I was complete.
I went downstairs to be stopped in my tracks by no other than Marcel and his father talking to mine.
“Come down Juniper.” My dad side without looking at me. He did not see me yet, but they did.
Marcel looked strange. He swallowed hard twice.
My dad turned around and several explanative fell from his lips.
“What the holy F—”
I stopped him because this was my day after all.
“It’s my birthday. I want to wear this.”
“Everette its fine as long as she is prepared for questions that women who wear those type off outfits will get.”
“Like what sir.” See I remembered my manners even though I was pissed.
“Like are those real and can I see if they are?”
I was being baited and I knew it. I kept my mouth shut but chuckled.
“Speak freely Juniper.”
I looked at my dad and he nodded yes.
“I would say isn’t that an odd question.”
“Of course, these are real. If you’re wanting to know if they are naturally mine then you should ask that, because they are naturally grown. Now if they weren’t naturally mine they are still real. If you can see it, touch it and has substance. Then it is real. For your second question it you can see if they are. Well that is where your imagination should come into play here cause you will never see them.” I said since all three were stunned silent it was my turn.
“Can I be bold enough to ask you a question?”
Marcel’s father nodded.
“Is what you hold between your legs natural or artificial? I will never tell a soul if it’s not.”
I stood there waiting to be smacked when all three burst out into laughter.
“Everette your daughter is a handful. Happy birthday. We came to bring you a gift and since you want to wear an outfit like that, I volunteer Marcel to be your chaperone.”
We both looked at his father stunned.
It is now twelve thirty and I see the sweat beading on her body. That is a sign her body is going through the transformation.
She started mumbling about a yellow shirt and seventeen.
I remember that day. She came downstairs looking like a woman. Not that she was not a female, but she was young. Meeting at sixteen she still had that aura of childhood about her. As she descended the stairs, and I got a good look at her.
My mouth began salivating and I swallowed it back not realizing it was audible to everyone in the room. Her father turned towards her and I could hear his heart speed up.
My father asked her a question which I thought would cause her to blush at least but instead it looked as if he drew a line and she was going to cross it without fear.
Not only did she answer the question, but she threw one back at him that not only shocked all three males in the room but gained a respect that I never seen my father give to anyone easily.
But nothing is easy with my father. He handed the gift to Juni and she opened it.
It was a gold chain with a leopard charm hanging off it. So there was the first open sign of possession.
Juni and her father knew this. Everette took it out of the box and put it around her daughters neck.
“Dad, can I go out to the mall.”
“Everette let her go. Marcel will chaperone the girl. Do not worry.”
I could see he wanted to protest but allowed her to go.
She stormed out of the house passed me and her smell. She smelled like a sweet wine. I went after her but she seemed angry.
“Are you mad about something?”
“Yes, it’s my birthday and I have you babysitting me.”
I smiled because if she only knew what I was thinking. She would realize I do not consider her a baby.
Then she stopped and turned on me.
“Did you tell my father what happened when you caught me at the party.”
I was not sure what she was talking about.
“Don’t give me that look. You know when I offered to-“
I had forgotten about that. “No, why”
“Why? Why” are you serious right now?”
I was not getting something. But her anger was palatable.
“Why?” I asked again annoyed with this game of hers.
“Because I have not had a date or boyfriend since then.”
Then it dawned on me.
“You’re in heat.”
“No, you idiot. I am not in heat like a—”
“Watch what you say.” I threatened.
“I’m frustrated that I will die before I had my rainbow.”
She made my head hurt.”
“Come again. Rainbow?”
Juni sighed and turned. She continued walking to the mall even though I could have driven her.
“You know that candy that has all different colors of the rainbow.”
I nodded because I seen the commercial for it.
“Don’t laugh. I wanted to try different guys and I call it the rainbow. You guys say women feel the same surrounding you. I know it cannot be the same for women. Men are different sizes and I want to know which one fits the best. See Rainbow.”
I honestly wanted to stop bend her over my knee and spank her till her ass the color of red in that rainbow.
“You’re telling me you want to bed seven different men with different size cocks to see what fits best. All this before you turn because you are going to die.”
She turned around with a smile on her face that would make every mother weep.
“Yes, I want to taste the rainbow.”
I was pulled back to reality when I seen blood coming from her nose and mouth.
I went to her to see where it was coming from and when I opened her mouth, I seen the beginning of her second jaw move forward and tiny white teeth poking through.
“Juni you can do this. Don’t die.” I said to her.
So, ladies and Gentlemen I feel the heat and I am feeling moisture cascading down my face. Are you feeling the heat? Let me know. Fia xoxo
I pulled a chair next to the end of the bed. She laid their pale and breathing shallow. ‘Did I scratch her too deep?’ I thought to my self. I don’t think so. She’s still breathing. I sat there and watched. Waiting for anything to happen. There was still plenty of time before I find out if she”ll–
I stop that thought and took sip of my drink. The taste brings be back to that first meeting with again.
“Your a bookie?” I asked looking at her as if I could be mistaken.
“I guess I am. I’ll leave right-“
“No. Don’t you say another word, Juni. Come with me.”
That was when I got a whiff of the her fear. The scent she had on was enticing but this scent. It caused a reaction that I could not control. A sound, a deep rumble in my chest. It is not audible for the straights but the two ware’s that were close to us turned there heads in our direction.
She had gotten off the stool and stood before me. I closed my eyes to gather my composure and turned. I didn’t like the way I was acting towards her. I may have to kill her before the nights ends. It was up to my father on that.
We went up to my room and I stepped aside for her to enter. She was a foot shorter than me and wore her hair up in a pony tail giving her the illusion of some height.
“What are you going to do to me?” she asked.
That was a question. I should take her out but there were too many people here and I will get life in prison. So that idea was put on the back burner. then I realized something that should have struck me immediately. She was calm. She was nervous when I approached and now she was at ease.
“What do you think I should do? Let me stop you before you say something like ,you should let me go. That is not going to happen.”
She nodded and looked in the room. What was she looking for? Maybe gaging escape routes. The room was too high for her to jump from the window and there was only one door in and out.
“Alright. I’m not naïve. No one is here so where do you want me?” She started to untie the sash on her waist and I wondered if she was real. The straights do not do acts with us. They fear we would loose control and harm them, yet not this one.
“How old are you?”
” Sixteen. I’ll be seventeen in two weeks.” She was about to pull her strap down when I stopped the motion.
“Why you would not be my first, so–“
For some reason that pissed me off. Did her parents know what she did? Of course they didn’t.
“Your father knows your here?”
She nodded yes and that pissed me off even more.
“Pull your self back together. You are not getting off that easy.”
Her cheeks flushed. Not sure why since she claims she is experienced.
“Before I call my father. I’m curious about something. How many has there been since your so eager to give me your body as hush payment?”
She licked her lips and looked away. “It doesn’t matter.”
She’s right it doesn’t. Never the less I wanted to know.
“How many?” I asked as I approached her and invading the little space I allowed between us to disappear.
She licked her lips and said “one.”
Was she lying? One and ready for another so soon? Curious.
“Do not worry Juni. Is that your full name?”
“Juni is short for Juniper.”
“Well, I will not be the next to take you and after tonight you may not see tomorrow. I just have to ask do you know how crazy you are to do that shit here?”
She turned away and walked to the closest chair and flopped down. Then the words I did not expect came from her mouth.
“I don’t smoke, so I cant ask for a last cigarette before I die. So the next best thing was a quick tumble.”
She must be crazy? Not even a minute after saying those words she was blushing from shame. She was able to turn this situation around and throw my denial as a failure on my part. Juni you need to be tamed. Too bad I cant be the one to do it.
It burns, my mouth is dry and I feel so hot. My mind was going crazy with memories of things that should be forgotten.
“Juni come here.” a harsh voice, caused from years of smoking called.
I walked over to my father and noticed that a hefty man with a suit on was sitting with a gun placed at my fathers temple.
“Juni, honey bring the markers from the bets you took at the party today to me.” he said calmly
The man watched me as his hand with the gun never moved. I went to retreave the markers and gave it to the man.
“Everette your daughter has grown up very nicely. Its a shame you will never see her again.”
“No sir. Please don’t. I’ll do what you want.”
He looked at me as if he was going to kill me next.”
“What I want?” He thought then looked at my father.
“Everette since your daughter cares so much for you. Here is the deal. Bring her to me when she is twenty one. She will be ours. She will be changed and she will be taken.”
I didn’t like the word taken or she will be ours.
“Kill me. I wont do it.” my father said.
“Fine I’ll kill you and take her anyway. The other way you can prepare her for the turning.”
“That is death.”
Let you fill you in about my father. He is never scared and if he ever was I have never seen it in my sixteen years of life. He has taught me to be cunning and use me wit to get out of tight situations. It helped that we both share the same smile and eyes that tend to let people feel at ease with us. Right now he is showing an emotion I have never seen before and that was fear for me.
“Yes. It is.” the other man said “and you Everette, will be the cause of it.”
I cried out in pain when a searing, burn that shown as a white light went across my closed eye lids.
I hear a voice in the distance saying, “Juni it’s starting.” then the voice faded.
Hello my fire starters lets me know how you feel about this so far. Follow and star. Recommend me to a friend. Maybe they need a fire to be built in there lives. Until next time Fia xoxo
I know stories should not start out this way and believe me I did not intend it to but it’s out of my hands now because this story, my story is going to be written down at this point.
Let me paint the picture of what is going on at this very moment. I am in a fancy elevator in Vegas holding hands with Marcel DuPont who has just married me in a chapel across the street. This would be a cause for a celebration if it not for one itty bitty problem.
Marcel DuPont is a ware. Not a werewolf because that would be easier this day and age. He’s a fully grown, in his prime, alpha snow leopard and he is for filling a bargain he made with me ten years ago.
He does not look pleased, and I am literally on the verge of having a full-on panic attack. You see part of that bargain is not only to consummate it but during I had agreed to be turned. There has never been a successful turning and tonight will be the last night I will ever see.
“Juni I am sorry but the bargin was made and I never go back on my word.”
He saids this and my heart is hammering in my chest.
“I will not take you by force. We do not have to be together sexually tonight but I will change you.”
He’s saying this and I’m thinking even people who are about to die get offered a cigarette and I get nothing. No sex.
“Marcel I may die tonight and you wont even send me off with a bang?” I tend to make jokes when I am nervous.
“If you wish.”
“Never mind. Your really not up for it.”
At that moment the doors opened, he holds my hand tighter and walked me down the brightly lit hallway. Swipes his key card and pulls me inside.
Once inside he turns on me and the anger is his eyes was palatable.
“Juni if this was any other night and you said Hey let’s get naked and screw. I would be all for it. Any other night. Tonight, I married you and if I take you. I will take you like you are one of my kind and you are not ready for that. Instead, I am going to lengthen my claws and cut into your flesh. After I will wait and watch to see if your body will handle the chemical reconfiguration of becoming a ware. So no I am not up for it.”
I swallowed hard and tried my best to keep standing. “So, your saying we could have screwed in the past and you never let me know.”
See humor at the worst possible moment.
“Juni I am going to get a drink, you are going to get completely naked, lay on the bed and wait for me.”
I was about to say something but a low rumble came from his chest, and I knew my time was up. The bargain has to be fulfilled.
Hey fire starters sorry I left you with nothing, but in my defense, I am writing two books at the moment, and it takes up my time. I hope you like the beginning because this story will take you to a place even, I cannot see. As always follow, like with a star and comment. I will answer you back. Let‘s keep this one burning shall we. Fia xoxo
As peace is falling over the Iwipoo warriors. The Wai are preparing for the war that has been dormant for a decade.
The prince looked into the sky and seen a couple of his fiercest warriors in training formation. Wings extended and talons sharpened to perfection. His battle captain Loen was on the verge of putting his second in command down, when Mir swooped undetected and grabbed Leon tail giving enough of a distraction that Slin clamped down on Loen exposed neck.
The Loen bowed in defeat as they all landed and changed into their human forms.
The prince smiled with pride as he walked towards them.
“Wow Mir and Slin managed to take out the great Loen.”
The men bowed as he approached.
“Yes but you did notice it took two of them.” Loen said looking at his men.
In human form Muir was tall and lanky. His hair was shoulder length and copper brown. Slin was a bit shorter and stockier across the chest area. Hair cut close to his head revealing his family mark that lay beneath.
“So how goes it with the meeting. Are you to be wed to a Iwapoo?” Loen said with a slight distaste to his tone revealed. He did not hide his feeling when it came to that tribe.
“No, I am unwed due to a cleaver female that is not from this world.” He said with a smirk.
“Female?” Slin asked
“Cleaver?” Mir asked next
“Yes. I have decided that I want her.”
“Is she able to be with on of our kind. What is she other than female?”
“She is human. From one of those intrusive ships in the sky.”
“Well then she may have left and returned home.”
“No she has not. A little bird has told me that she read the secret text to best my negotiator. Now she is not allowed to leave. It is our law. I will come up with a plan to get her but that will not interfere with the war.”
“If you go after this female it will definatly start the war.”
“Yes. It will.” The prince said as he looked at his men.
Ramona was ready to go to her new home. She decided that as she was stuck on this planet she will at least take that long deserved vacation and relax a bit.
The door chimed before Orick entered. He was in his usual garb but he did not seem at ease.
“Is there something wrong?”
“Not at all. We have received your belongings and they are at your new home. The king has told me to inform you he will be sharing a meal with you tonight.”
Ramona felt uncomfortable. “Is this to be professional attire then?”
Orick did not understand what clothing had to do with a meal.
“You can dress how ever you deem fit. Shall we go.”
Ramona nodded and followed Oricks lead. Outside the palace the grounds looked vibrant with colors of green and gold. The birds that flew over head did not look like the ones on earth. Wings were thinner and tails long and flared.
She seen a young male pulling on and animal that looked strange. It had not eyes that she could see and it had a thick snout. It looked like a cross between a water buffalo and ant eater.
“Orick what is that the boy is leading?”
“That is the Kotup. It is very prized among our people. It gives it’s nourishment by milk to the young.”
As he was explaining it let out a strange noise that she felt vibrate through the ground.
“What did it do?”
“It emits a sound that cause the mikoo to come up and it will eat it.”
Ramona could only think that the mikoo is there version of wormes or ants. They walked for over an hour and came to a home that was close enough to the kings home but far enough for her to have privacy.
It was a nice size dwelling. It was one level but the scale of it could be considered as having two dining halls combined. She entered to see that the theme of the design tend to mimic the out doors. She may have to make some changes. Not to many but some.
Orick showed her all of the rooms and each room had a private bathroom.
The eating area was large and off to the side was smaller area to eat as well.
“The food will be arriving within the hour as you say. The main room has all your things in there. I will return with the king. So please make this your home?”
Orick left and Ramona looked around with a little fear in her stomach. Orick felt it and did not understand why.
“Did she like her new home?” Nonilla asked as he stepped out of the bathing area.
“She seemed pleased. But there was a slight fear I sensed when I left.”
“I did not stay to scan her thoughts.”
Nomilla gotten dressed in silence. He wore the teal and silver. It was rare that he did dressed fully to eat. He normally goes out for a flight after to burn off the food he consumed.
“You are quiet Orick. Speak your mind.”
“I am not at ease. You seem different since she has arrived and I just hope it does not cause a problem in the future.”
What he held back from saying was he did not want to go to war. They have had their spy and the intel about the Wai preparing for battle have been leaked out to the people. the marriage would have slowed down the danger. It would not stop it.
Nonilla turned towards his guard and patted him on the shoulder. “Let us have this evening and tomorrow we will discuss the matter of the Wai.”
Orick nodded. They left in silence and walked to Ramona’s home.
Normally the king would walk in but he wanted her to feel that her privacy was respected. So he waited until the door opened and Ramona stood there in a garment that was enticing, yet simple.
He hair was let down and the waves framed her features. He noticed that there was something on her eyes that was making the color standout. Her lips held a tint and shine to them.
“Come in please. They have just left and the food smells wonderful.”
The king entered then Orick. After she closed the door Orick noticed she was not wearing any shoes.
“Ramona you have forgotten to cover your feet.”
She smiled. “No I haven’t. I would walk this way in my quarte’s and since tis is my home I would do the same. Besides it prevents the floors from being messed up from the out side.”
Nonilla decided to take his shoes off and follow his host. Ramona smiled at his gesture. Orick refused.
“Would you both like something to drink?” She asked
They both nodded. Once she left Orick whispered. “I think we may need Lani to stay with her for a few days. She is uncomfortable being alone in this house.”
The king nodded his consent. He will try to make her feel welcome.
How are you liking it so far my fire starters? Let me know by clicking a like and let your friends know. Part two will be posted this week. Enjoy
Ramona looked out the window recalling everything she had went through in the last couple of days. She was so angry that she was stuck on a planet that she never wanted to be on.
She felt Lani eye’s continually on her. She went into the cleaning unit and changed back into her uniform. Lani looked surprised that she did that.
“Why are you back in your, your clothing?”
“I am an officer and I will be leaving once I receive the call.” Ramona said coldly.
The soumd of the vid communicator went off and Ramona was there to answer it.
“Hello Comand—.” Her voice trailed off when instead of her commander she seen Carl.
“You son of slag. What have you done?”
“I have done nothing. You have gotten yourself in this predicament. Your drive to know how to beat your opponent at any means necessary gotten you stuck there.”
“You know what they are?”
“No and that is the agreement the counsel had struck with that race ages ago. We do not interfere and we do not dig into private affairs.”
Ramona felt steam rise from her collar as she realized that Carl had sentenced her to live with a race of, of dragons.
“Now you post has been given to Melami Osora. The commander was informed of the matter and she is disappointment that you would have gone to such extremes without realizing the ramifications of your actions.”
“RAMIFICATIONS! Carl when I see you again I will make you wish you that you never met me.”
“Oh mona. Never you still have not given me a piece of that bod of yours. As far as us seeing each other again. That I am pretty sure will not happen. Enjoy your new life lieutenant.”
The call ended. Lani had stepped out of the room but she heard every thing. She felt bad that she was tricked but she will try to ease her transition. She walked into the room and the female was still standing near the vid communicator.
“Are you well?”
“I need air. I need to run and clear my head.”
Her voice sound odd. almost high in pitch but controlled. “I can take you to the boarder lands. you can run along the stream. No one will bother you there.”
“Thank you give me a moment to change.”
Lani was smelling a mixture of emotions rolling off of her. It would be best to let her go through her process to grieve and acceptance.
Nonilli went about his day as usual. He stretched his wings and circled his land. He made sure everything was running smoothly.
He flew above all the other dragons so he can be alone. He did not know what to do with his new charge. She did not shift so she will not be like the other females. She will not be as strong as them either so he will need to find something suitable for her.
Then it struck him that she will be useful in educating him and to help him with an idea that will not cause another to be sentence to a life with there people against their will.
Pleased with his thoughts he noticed Lani flying below along the stream route. She was supposed to be with the human female.
He flew down next to her and mentally asked why was she not with the female.
Lani motioned her head down showing that the human was running along the stream. She tried to explained what happened and that she seemed to really want to exert her self to deal with her emotions.
He thought about how it must be affecting her. He thought to her, ‘bring her to me after.’
She shook her head and continued to watch as Ramona ran.
Nonilli turned and went back to his home to be greeted be Orick and a stack of work.
“Sire we have to get these signed and sent to the Wai so the agreement is binding,”
Nonilla shimmered back into form and grabbed his garment and tied it around his waist.
“Come then. Lets do this quickly. After I want you to have food placed in the new home of the lieutenant.”
Orick looked at him as if there was not food placed for her there. Also a generator that can simulate food if needed.
“Food is placed there already for her, sire?”
“Sorry bring food that I will eat there. I will dine there and return after.”
“Do you think that is wise. She seems to bring the beast out of you.”
“I will control myself. I am king. I will manage.”
“Well Lani and I will be there so just in case.”
He nodded and started to read over and sign the documents.
Orick needed to consult Torin. The elder of his line. She will be able to advise him on what is unfolding.
The run did her good. She was able to get her frustration worked out on the steep terrain. Since she was stuck her she decided to make the best of it.
Lani was in the room when she returned. Ramona had not seen her dragon and she wanted to be comfortable around them.
“Lani can I see your dragon form?”
Lani looked uncomfortable about the request.
“I am not sure that is a good idea.”
“Why? This is my home now I should get comfortable with the visuals.”
Lani started to wring her hands together in nervousness.
“You see our dragons have minds and emotions of there own and if they do not wish to come out then they don’t. We work together.”
Symbiotic union. Does she not want to meet me?
“She a bit snappy and I don’t want you hurt.”
“What do I do to show her I am not a threat. Or any of the dragons?”
“I am not sure. With our kind we bend our heads and expose our necks but your neck is small. I’m not sure.”
“Well let’s try it out.”
“If your hurt then I may get punished by the king.”
“Please. I have to learn. Now my neck is exposed since I wearing and tank top. I will bend my head and cover my eyes until I get the signal it’s ok. What would be the signal?”
“She will lick your neck and nudge you.”
“I’m ready.” She said but her adrenaline was racing and she needed to calm down. Animals on earth tend to get overly excepted when prey has allot of adrenaline pumping.
Lani walked near the balcony window and shimmered into her dragon. Ramona bent her head immediately and waited for the dragon to come near her.
She heard the claws scape against the floor towards her and the heavy breathing next to her. She kept her eyes closed and tried her best to stay calm.
She felt it sniff her neck for what seemed like an eternity and there it was a swift lick and nudge. Ramona reached out her hand to touch the dragon before seeing it. Then she opened her eyes.
Lani was beautiful. She shimmered a sea blue with gold flecks. He talons were curved and wings were very feminine looking. She looked at her to see what she was doing.
Ramona rubbed the side of her neck and Lani stepped back and shifted quickly.
“Did I do something wrong?
“You rubbed the side of her neck. That is too intimate. Confusing. She likes you and find you interesting. Lets keep the rubbing between us ok.”
Ramona really had a lot to learn.
“Does she have a name?”
“Yes she is luani. She will visit you again.” Lani giggled.
“What is funny?”
“She finds you like a small animal like your people keep.”
“Yes a pet. She likes you.
Sorry to end it here Fire starters. I will try to continue it tonight or this weekend. If you like it please let me know. Comment and like. Until nex we burnXOXO
Orick stood out side the door scanning Ramona thoughts. He wanted to know if she was ready for what was about to happen. What he seen astounded him. Her thoughts ran so quickly that he had a hard time despairing what she was thinking.
He was about to knock when the door opened and one of the royal dressers walked out with a questionable look on her face. She did not verbally communicate what she was thinking, but projected it.
Ramona was in a silent trance like state while she was helping her dressed. It disturbed her how silent she was. Orick wanted to tell the King that this was going to be a disaster. Before he could turn Ramona stood in front of him dressed in the royal colors.
Her hair was down and shown waves of different colors of brown. Her lips was slighted tinted as were her cheeks. What stood out was her eyes. The color of the ocean green but the intensity that was behind them.
“Are you well?” He asked
“Perfectly. Let us go.”
She walked as if she was born to there style of foot wear. It made her hips sway almost in a hypnotic figure eight. The dress was fitted to flatter and yet to show less skin than it was necessary so it did not distract for the issue at hand.
She walked into a room that the the king, two other guards and beautiful young woman who looked terrified of her fate.
“First Sergeant I hope you have acquired enough to get us to a mutual understanding.”
Ramona stood in front of the king and slight bow. She managed not to ball her fists.
“I am ready.”
The king observed her calm demeanor and could not smell any fear or anger coming off of her. It made him take pause.
“This is my daughter. Sineza.”
Ramona looked at her and bowed as well. But she looked at her and gave her a wink.
The king and Orick seen the slight exchange and did not understand it’s meaning. Maybe she was not well.
The King turned and walked before all and went into the grand room where all things are discussed and solved.
The Wai King was already there with three guards and a man standing beside him who must have been his son. Much too old for the young woman.
Orick went in-between the two kings and spoke.
“We have come to the grand room to solve a problem as our forefathers have before us. We call First Sargent Ramona Carrilla to be our negotiator in this matter.”
A guard for the other side stepped in front of Orick and spoke.
“We Wai agree to this meeting and call our negotiator First Sargent Calvin McShan to speak for our people. “
She has heard of Calvin and no doubt he has heard of her. She was ready.
They both went to the center of the grand room and stood staring at each other. They were waiting for the traditional bell before the negotiations.
The bell rung and Calvin began not letting her get the upper hand. He spoke of traditions and honor. Of one’s word being sacred as the earth they live one and concluded that withdrawing the agreement was a dishonor to their people.
It was Ramona turn. She spoke of times that passed and wars fought. That the agreements and customs that were created then was not meant to be carried on forever but to be developed into something better than what it’s originally meant for. As the earth they live on changes so must it’s people.
The Wai king shifted. Nonilla noted it and was pleased. This female was cunning.
“Yes I agree things change but if there is not foundation on which this change can be based on, then we will crumble. In saying this. The prince claims the right of marriage as the foundation of this world has been built on.”
Ramona smiled and Calvin looked angered.
“The prince claims the right of marriage you say as the foundation of this world has been built on. The princess accepts no claim as it is written in the Texuitra. The foundation of the people, which you claim to know is built on.
The Iwipoo do not want to dishonor the Wai. In offering the water for exchange for the earth is still offered.”
“How can this agreement be sealed if not on the wedding bed and innocents blood shed?”
That was it. Innocent blood shed Calvin said. He did not know what his words unleashed. Ramona spoke in the Wai dialect.
“King of the Wai, your people are like the spring that flows and gives life to all. With out the water there would be great suffering and deaths of innocents. The earth is also needed to nourish the body and the soul. Earth and Water are the power and heart of both people. Yet when one is with held the other suffers. Your son may take any willing innocent from the Wai and keep the blood line strong. But the arrangement that was agreed upon before there birth it as old as the old waterway that has been destroyed by the great fire god.
Now fertile land is offered to you and your people for generation of use in exchange for water. This is better than one night of innocent blood, Do you not agree King.”
The room fell silent. The King of the Wai agreed to what was offered the marriage was called off. Nonilla was amazed as the fire and knowledge that she wielded like talons into the Wai throats.
Once the papers were drawn up and signed. Ramona went over to Calvin to shake his hand.
“Good debate McShan.”
“Yea. How did you know so much about them?”
“You have to admitted my innocent blood was brilliant.”
Romana smiled nodded and punched him across the jaw. Laying him out cold in the grand room. She looked up and bowed to the Wai king and turned to walk towards the Iwipoo.
Nonilla was shocked by what he has just seen and stirred his beast. ‘She will be good to warm our bed.”
He shook the thought out of his head. She is not their kind.
The Wai prince found the human intriguing and wanted her. He is glad to be rid of the young iwipoo. His sight was set on the female Ramona.
The iwipoo went to another room in the Kings home. The king and Orick spoke silently before addressing Ramona.
“I want to thank you for what you have done. The king has decided for your service you will have the home on the west field. He thinks you will be happy to live your life out there.”
“Excuse me I did what you have asked. Now I will go on my vacation and leave this lovely planet to you.”
The looked at her as if she is crazed.
“First Sargent you have read our history. You know who and what we are. You will never be able to leave.”
“I read your history that is mixed with fairy tales and folk lore. It is no cause for me to stay.”
“You do not believe?”
“What that your people are dragons. No it is not possible. Delusional but physically not possible.”
The beast in the king clawed to be free. It was angry at the female and will not tolerate her ignorance.
Orick seen the anger stirring in the King. If she truly did not believe she will in just a moment because King Nonilla was transforming before their eye’s.
Ramona stood there and watched as the King physically transformed before her into a beast of legend. Then it all went black.
So she won and she seen the beast. But in the processes she attracted another. What is to happen to her now? Comment and like. Fiaxoxo
Ramona followed Orick in silence. She replayed what occurred in the room. The king had pushed her too hard. She had not balled her hands so tightly for years that she drew her own blood.
She had gotten into many arguments but with words. Using her knowledge and her curt tongue she would win and at the same time wound her opponents ego.
No she was already ready to leave this place.
“Ahhemm.” the male cleared his throat to capture her attention.
“You are very deep in thought. We are at your quarts and the information that you requested will be in side. I must tell you this. If you can do this meeting with out looking into the books you will leave tomorrow.” He said giving her a pleading look.
“I need to know my opponent. I need to learn weaknesses that I can use to get what your king desires. I can not go in there blind.”
He looked at her with pity. “I see. Well do not let me stop you from your work and you should take care of your hand. It has stopped bleeding but the smell is still lingering.”
Ramona looked at the palm of her hand and seen that it was healing and the half moons were a reminder of her weakness that she wanted to forget. He watched her as she went inside her quarters and closed the door behind him.
He stood out side the door and closed his eyes as if he was concentrating .
Ramona seen thick books with weathered pages set on a small table in her room. She thought , ‘If he was not a male chauvinist pig he would be a nice distraction to look at. But his “she will lead us to war” just pissed her off. She was determined to show him what a woman can do.
He smiled and walked away from the door. He was supposed to returm to the king once she was taken to her quarters.
“So tell me. What where her thoughts.”
The king turned around as he entered the room.
“You would not find it pleasing. She feels you are an animal that wallows in the wet soil.”
“She said you would be go to look at if you did not say she would be the cause of our war.”
The king looked at him and with confusion clearly written on his face.’ She had two emotions towards him.’ He thought.
“I do not wished to be stared at . If she can help avoid my daughter betrothal than I will be satisified.”
“Can we not let her go after—-?”
“No she wanted to know our history. Once she discovers the truth then she must stay. We can not let these, these beings tell the galaxy of our existence.”
“But they are peaceful.”
“No. That is not there core. They are as violent as we but we do not hide it.”
She spent all night reading and absorbing the rich history of these people. They seem to believe that they are decendants of dragons. She tried not to laugh but some of the stories were definatly made up and she could not believe that these people really beleived it. She was not there to rewrite there beliefs.
She made it a point to humor the discovery and continue with her education. She stopped when it looked as if the sun was about to rise.
She completed and kept to memory of past quarels and how they were handled. A knock at the door prompted her to rise and streach her muscles.
“Come in” she called out.
Orick stood before her in a vibrant blue out fit that resembled a cross between Rome and Scottish guard. He looked around the room and noticed that she had went through all the history book in one night cycle. He had hoped she would not but since it is done. It can not be undone.
“We will meet with the Wai shortly. I can send you the traditional clothing of our people before you meet with them.”
Ramona was going to deny the need to wear there clothing but she recalled that was part of symblizing unity with the people. She nodded.
“Did you not rest at all?”
“I had no time. I will be fine. Once it is over then I will rest on my way back.”
Orick could not understand why she failed to accept her fate. The King did not lie when he said that she can not leave.
“You will require help in getting dressed. Our clothing may seem simple but you may find it difficult.”
“Fine. Is there any coffee on this planet?”
“You are too agreeable. What has changed?”
“Lack of coffee.” She said staring at him with seriousness.
“You will have our strongest. I will return to escort you first sergeant.” Orick said then left the room to go straight to the King.
Entering the Kings chambers he was greeted with the fragrance of their people before a battle. It was clear why he was the King of their people. His very presences commands respect. He wore a silken (Airek). It took several seasons to be made and is worn for these occasions.
“What of the female?”
“She has read it all, my king”
“Well let us hope she is as good as her people and she claim to be.”
“She is changed from what we have seen prior.”
“She is pliant. Agreeable. Too agreeable. I fear she may not do well.”
“She was fire. Now you say she is not.?”
“She said it is due to lack of coffee.”
“That hideous smelling concoction. Get it to her. She must not fail.”
Can coffee be the elixir to get her blood racing? Let’s find out. Let me know your enjoying it by liking and comment. All is welcome.
My head hurt worst than the time I was hit by a zia thron toy. I ended up with a massive lump on my head but I survived it.
I managed to open my eyes to see two pairs of eyes in front of me. They were odd looking. Blue green in color and the pupils were slits like reptiles but then it changed to circular the more I stared into them.
"he puʻupuʻu paha kāna" (does she have a concussion?"
The voices sounded a bit muffled with a growl. I know that language but my heart hurt so bad that my thoughts were not focusing well. Once they notice that I aware enough , the eyes moved out of my view. I tried talking but nothing can out. What was going on?
“Ua pā ʻoe i kou poʻo” “You have hit your head”
I was getting annoyed that I could not speak. My head hurt but I willed a sound to come out of my mouth. I could hear that the talking stopped. I turned my head a little to the left and the room seemed to lost it’s stability or I have really hit my head hard.
They started to speak again in there language and I understood every word. the dialect was similar to the ones used on the Hawaiian Islands before the big tragedy. Now the remaining descendants still teach the language to their young.
“She is trying to move. Maybe we should let her rest in the deep sleep to heal more.” A female voice said at least it sounded female.
“We can not. Our leader is waiting to meet with her.”
“He does not know it is a female. He is expecting a male and she will not be welcomed.”
“Lani she is who we have and I was told she is the best in negotiations.”
They were told. I was set up. I am so going to kick Carl ass.”
“Hello, Where am I?”
“Welcome. You are on Deragones.”
“Deragones? I have not heard of this planet.”
I managed to focus on who I was speaking to. She stood at least a foot taller than me and had dark hair braided very tightly down her back. Her clothing seem to be loose fitting with bright swirl of color decorated across.
“How are you able to understand us? We were not able to set us the translator module in our main system.”
“I am a translator for many new species and I tend to pick up languages quickly. Now why was I taken here? I was told that I was going on vacation.”
“We do apologize. You destination was always to come here. Were are in need of your expertise in delegation or we may end up in a civil war.”
I looked at her then the other faces in the room. They seemed serious and concerned.
“I am not saying I will help but I will hear what is going on and see if my assistance is needed.”
They all looked at each other and I could tell they were now communicating on a different level,
“My name is Lani and I will escort you to meet with our leader. I must tell you that we were expecting a male.”
‘Owch’ I thought.
She did not want to say anymore and that did not bode well with me. We waited another hour until the room settled and I could think more clearly. They brought me something to drink that was sweet tasting and it gave me a bit of a boost without making me jittery.
Lani escorted me to their leader and I made sure I understood the custom enough that I would be able to address him properly.
We walked through a think and dense forest to get to the leaders head quarters.
It was surprisingly beautiful. the construction had the theme of the wooded area and dashes of technology. Technology that was still not were we are but they will get there soon.
Lani swiped here hand over a mirror and it vibrated letting them know we were out side.
The door was opened by a man who seemed battle and wore the scars proudly on his chest.
“Lani why do you not heal the scares so there skin would not hold it? I asked
“It is our way. We show the scares proudly.”
We were escorted into a room that held five males. At the head of the table must be the leader. So I did the courteous casting of the eyes and a low growl in my throat as Lani instructed.
“Who is this female?”
I looked up and the voice came from the right of the leader. A tall male with darkened skin and scars running across his throat. His eyes flashed from slits to pupils and I took it he was angry.
The female is here for the talks. She will help.”
“A female in the talks? We are cursed. We will be at war by dawn.”
“Excuse me . Since I am here to speak to the leader I do not see why you would have a say whether I help or not. Do not judge me with out seeing what I can do.” I said in perfect dialect.
The room fell silent and I did not care. I wanted to talk to the leader not his guard.
“Then speak since I am Nonili. The leader of the Iwipoo.”
He was pissed. Lucky for him so was I.
Hey fire starters so it seems that Ramona is not starting out on the right foot with the leader of the Iwipoo leader. It does not seem as if she cares either. If you like it so far let me know. Love to hear from you. Fia xoxox
