Chapter 30 The Last Kiss

  • "It Was Getting Dark In Her Little Heart." ***Present Time*** "You will never be able to find this path again love. I'll be forever lost to you love." Amber whispered to Darach. "Let's not be irrational. You don't have to do this, look we can figure something out just...." Amber cut him off before he could complete his sentence. "You can't figure this out!! You don't have a problem with our situation, you have a problem with me, with my origin." When Darach didn't reply Amber continued. "I won't change a thing about myself, not even for you. I won't lose myself for your love. I love you and it's okay that you don't love me back." She admitted that she was in love with the lycan king in front of everyone without any shame. Unlike others, she had nothing to hide. . . Amber so badly wanted Darach to say to her that he didn't want to change her but his silence shattered the last tiny hope that she was holding onto. The Cold Queen turned her back towards the person who promised her a happily ever after. With a mind filled with self doubts, Amber gazed at the people who were surrounding her, her people who were waiting for her next move. She felt like the little abandoned girl who had roamed the wastelands in search of someone to call her own. The little girl who was always left alone. . . Maybe something was wrong with the way she was born~ Her parents didn't want her, She had no idea about her father's identity, she was the daughter of a Princess who had forsaken her. The Fey Princess didn't even remember her name anymore. The name of her own daughter. . . Her own mother thought that she got rid of Amber. Amber's own mate wanted to keep her as his breeding whore, the self-made Queen as his personal bitch. Could life be any worse than this? She didn't understand the reasoning behind her mother's actions but she was nothing but good to Darach and he broke her heart in return. "You don't have to worry about any child you have with me or the chance of a child you had with me. I'm not fertile in these days of the year." Amber lied. She had no fucking idea about her being fertile or not. She never had to think about children before Darach. She had always worn her clock but thanks to Darach who had taken down all the barriers that she had build around her to protect herself. What if she became pregnant with his child? Was she strong enough to love a child whose father broke her heart? Realization struck her like a wrecking ball. Maybe the Fey Princess had her heartbroken by Amber's father that was the reason she abandoned Amber. Amber still remembered the first and last time she had seen her mother. The princess was roaming a forest aimlessly. She looked like a lost creature with an air of misery surrounding her. Maybe she regretted abandoning her daughter or maybe karma had knocked at her door for what she had done to Amber. Amber's hand unconsciously touched her flat stomach. Will she be a mother to her child or a woman who was abandoned by the child's father. .? Would Amber want her child to go through the same pain that she had gone through? "You can't be sure about this!" Darach snapped, pulling her out of her thoughts. Amber looked at him, he just wanted a child from her. Every fucking person wanted something from her and when it was her time to ask for something they always leave. They always fucking leave!! "Believe me Darach I'm sure. I have never been more sure about anything in my life." Amber looked in his eyes. "You have to leave, you don't belong with me. Just like these lycans don't belong with you." Amber felt her heart constricting inside her chest. She had lost the battle with her fate. She had always challenged her fate by accomplishing everything that fate deprived her of. Like a Queendom, people who accept her, A place she can call her home. But today she had lost, lost someone very dear~ Fate was literally a bitch. A crazy psychopath bitch. . . Energy burned within Amber, Blue light started building up in her left hand and for the first time in her life, Amber created a portal by channeling her powers with this ease. "Amber you are bleeding." Came Rome's concerned voice. Amber looked towards Rome, her child and smiled. "Aren't we all bleeding Rome? Some from inside while some from the outside." Amber placed her hand on her heart when she said inside and looked towards Darach when she uttered outside. Her heart was bleeding~ The smile on her face and the pain in her eyes was enough for Rome to step back, this wasn't his place to interfere. Amber placed her right hand on her nose, Rome was right. She was bleeding. Amber tried to wipe the blood coming out of her nose with her hand, smudging it all over her left cheek. She can taste blood in her mouth too but she can deal with it later. The excessive use of power was draining Amber out of her life source but she can deal with it later because at that moment she had to send the royal lycans to where they truly belonged. Out of her Queendom and her life. . . Compelling Connor and Lucia's body she made them walk toward the portal that she had opened just a few feet away from where Darach was kneeling. If things worked fine then the portal will lead them back to the Kingdom of Lycans or else they were going to end up anywhere. It all depended on where the portal will lead them. "Please don't throw me out. Let me stay here! I HAVE TO FIND HER!! PLEASE!!!" Connor begged while trying to fight against Amber's hold on his body. One brother wanted to stay while the other one wanted to leave, the irony. "Amber please, I have suffered for 20 years don't make me go through this pain again. I'll be your fucking slave if that's what it takes to stay here." Connor pleaded. For a moment Amber hesitated but then her eyes fell on Rebecca who was standing in the shadows, away from everyone. "The pain you delivered to her is getting back to you know wolf. So you better enjoy the pain you so generously dished out to her." Amber said those words to Connor but her eyes never left Rebecca. Rebecca's encouraging nod was like a stamp on Amber's decision. The Royals needed to leave~ Connor's eyes followed Amber's gaze until his eyes fell on his mate who was hiding in the shadows. His sharp intake of breath told Amber that he had seen Rebecca. Amber gazed at Darach who was watching his brother begging for a chance to stay in Amber's territory in front of everyone. Today the pride of these royal lycans was getting hit after a hit. First, their dominance held zero power over their own people and now they were begging from a witch, the witch they wanted to turn into a breeding whore. His sister Lucia was silent. She hasn't uttered a single word the whole time. Amber dared her to say something but Lucia looked away from Amber's challenging look. Amber gazed at her face, the princess's eyes held shame in them. Shame that her own family had brought to her, shame that her own kind had brought her. Lucia had realized one thing while she stayed on Amber's land and that was that Amber's line and origin were legendary while Lucia's line was shameful. She had learned the meanings of a true Queen while she stayed at this foreign land as a prisoner. She came here to save her missing people but instead of finding them, she realized that they weren't lost in the first place. It seemed like they weren't even her people anymore. They now belonged to the woman who protected them, gave them the sense of security that they needed from Lucia's bloodline. They now belonged to Amber. She didn't even try to fight against Amber's hold on her body when Amber urged Lucia to walk towards the portal. Turning her head back, Lucia mouthed a sorry to Amber before passing through the portal while Connor gave an agonizing roar who had transformed into his lycan form and was trying to get away from the portal. He was trying to reach Rebecca. "If I lose her this time I'll tear you apart and I won't give a fuck if you are family or not." The beast within Connor threatened Amber before the portal sucked him inside. Amber watched Connor and Lucia disappearing through the portal, she finally turned towards Darach. The portal was just beside him, only three steps away from where he was kneeling. Amber kneeled in front of him. To her surprise Darach touched her face with such tenderness that it touched her heart. A frown was set on his face. He was trying to wipe the blood from her face but Amber knew that the blood won't stop. It had happened before when she had gone against the laws of nature. It was happening again~ But Amber had a feeling that she might lose her life this time~ "Was I just a fuck for you?" Amber mumbled in a small voice. "Would you believe me if I say no?" Darach questioned. "No." Amber whispered while looking into his eyes. He had lost her trust~ Amber didn't trust him anymore because all his promises were just meaningless words in the end. "Will you take me back if I tell you that I love you? Will you take me back if I tell you how much I regret what I said to you?" A lone tear escaped from Darach's eyes. "Don't fuck with my feelings, just because you're unsure of your own. You don't have to say you love me Darach. No one means it anyway." Amber looked away. "Please don't make me leave Amber. Give me a second chance, please. I'm an idiot for letting my hatred for witches overpower my love for you." Darach begged. "Don't do this now Darach. I can't endure it. You can go back to hating me, it will make things easy for me. I know I was just a fuck for you and I'll keep that in mind when I'll take another to my bed and heart." Amber told him the truth. The Vampire King came into her mind when she thought of another. The Vampire King's words ringed into her mind. 'I don't mind having a fierce Queen like you dear. It will be my pleasure to have the honor of courting you.' He was true to her. . . She will bed the Vampire King. At least he didn't look at her with hatred in his eyes. Every male she had bedded before Darach had regarded her with respect and fascination. The Vampire King never lied to Amber, hell he was even ready to make Amber his Queen but Amber hadn't known the appeal of a mate at that time but now she knew what she wanted. So what if she didn't get love from her destined mate, she can make anyone fall in love with her. There was nothing wrong with her. Amber was again trying to make the little insecure girl within her believe that there was nothing wrong with them, it was the world around them that was fucked up. "If any male even tried to lay a hand on you. I'll break him, little mate." Darach growled, his eyes turning molten golden. "You have no say in that anymore and you were the first and last cowardly man that I bedded. I won't be choosing someone like you again." Amber spat the words at him. She pulled Darach to his feet, their fingers entwined. Their hands fit together as if made for each other. Amber pushed him into the portal but he didn't leave his hold on her hand. She pulled her hand back but he held on for dear life~ Amber pulled him towards her from the edge of the portal by their entwined hand. Snaking her arms around his neck, she placed her lips on his cold ones, closing her eyes she relished the feel of him for the last time, trying to memorize this moment in her mind for forever. She was trying to walk away and hold on at the same time~ It was getting dark in her little heart~ She pulled back, tears escaped from her eyes. His face was covered in her blood. Amber tried to wipe her blood off his face but instead of wiping, it got smudged all over his face. "You are bleeding little mate." Darach trailed off when he caught the look in her eyes. "Every time you kiss someone else, you will be thinking of me. I know you will. Every time I'll take someone else to my bed I'll be thinking of what you were unable to give me, respect. Goodbye Mate." Amber whispered against his lips before pushing him in the portal, catching him off guard. His hands reached out to hold her but Amber stepped back. The portal closed behind Darach. Amber fell on her knees, coughing crimson blood. Every gasped at her condition. . . Amber looked at the place where the portal had closed. She hadn't said goodbye to Darach, she had whispered goodbye to her dreams of a happily ever after. She tried to make her heart understand that she was better off those silly dreams, she was better off the man whom she fell for. For the first time in her life, Amber gave up on something or someone. She gave up on her false hopes and her mate, Darach. She was going through the same pain that the lycans in her Queendom had endured. Her lips were silent but every lycan present there can hear the screams of her broken heart, loud and clear. They had seen her crumbling to the ground and now they were going to watch her rise above them all again. Standing on her feet again Amber looked around her. Amber eyes caught the fear that was shining in her people's eyes, they were afraid for her. Intend on putting her broken self together Amber pulled her shoulders back and raised her chin. It was time to fix her broken crown~ She had done it before and she can definitely do it again. That was the only thing she was good at, moving on. But this time it was difficult for Amber to turn the page when she knew that Darach won't be in the next chapter of her life. But no matter how hard it will be to move on, she was not going to look back or find her happiness in others. She was perfect before Darach and she will be perfect after him. . . Rule number one for a happily ever after: Never fall in love again. It wasn't her fault that she fell in love. Her fault was that she fell for a person who was seeped in hatred for her kind. Now it was finally time to present these lycans with the same shit that they had dished out to their soulmates for centuries. It was their time to pay back for their fuckups. "Who the fuck is interested in the position of being my Royal Messenger?" Amber's demanding voice echoed on the silent ground. Amber looked at the dragon who had raised his hand with a wicked smile on his face at her question. Amber smirked at the dragon. Finally, the lazy bastard was doing something that will benefit the Queendom in which he had resided from the past 10 years. "It's finally time to send a little message to the kingdom of lycans." Were the Queen's last words before she fell on the ground, vomiting black blood.
