How could they manage to love each other so damn much? No matter how much Amber showed that she didn't give a fuck about love, no matter how much she said that she doesn't care, there was always a little voice in her head that whispered 'You Do Care Silly!'.
It was a voice that never left her alone. Sometimes soothing and sometimes it was so frustrating that she can do whatever it takes to get rid of it.
But she can't. . .
Amber's parents gave her nothing. Hell! they didn't even give a single fuck before throwing her away. But they gave her an instinct, Wolf's Instinct. She was a part female lycan but she didn't have a beast, she can't transform into her lycan form and she was glad for that.
Over the centuries Amber had seen Lycan's transformation. It was a captivating sight as much as a horrific one. They don't change into a wolf but their body changes into more muscular form, nails transform in sharp claws, the size of their body becomes three times bigger than their original size, get fangs and sharp teeth like a wolf and the most important part their eyes glow in an abnormal mesmerizing shade of golden.
Their features are overshadowed by a wolfy version of their faces. If Amber wasn't a part lycan herself she would have freaked out at the mere sight of a lycan. But luckily she didn't get all these traits from her lycan father. She only got an instinct, the inner voice of a wolf and their brutal strength.
With her wee height of 5.2, Amber looked as harmless as a baby. But the power that resides inside her tells a different story.
"Are they always like this?" She asked the little boy who's parents were making out in front of everyone. The male was literally eating the female's face as if he hadn't eaten anything in centuries.
"Worse..." Jimmy sighed, embarrassed by his parents. Jimmy was a five years old little wolf but he looked like a 12 years old human kid.
Jimmy's father was a lycan and his mother was a Fey just like Amber's own parents. Both of them adore Jimmy more than there own lives. That was the main reason why Amber took an interest in them.
If they can love their kid so much then why would Amber's parents abandon her...?
Jimmy's parents were madly in love with each other. His father was so possessive and protective of his mate and child that Amber couldn't help but envy them.
Sometimes Amber spends time with Jimmy and pretends that she was living her own childhood by watching him grow up.
Amber despise them for this, for showing her what she can't have.
The thing that disturbed her the most was what happened to her parents? Both of her parents were from the fractions that are extremely territorial of their family and assets. Then why would they left their own blood for an agonizing death and not care at all?
Did they not love her. .?
Would anyone ever love her. . .?
"Do you think you'll ever fall in love Jimmy?" Amber asked Jimmy randomly.
"I don't know. I think if she will be like you, then probably." Jimmy said, shyly glancing at her.
"So you like me, Jimmy?" Amber winked at him.
"You are my Queen, I love you. Maa said that you protect us and everyone who lives here and my name is Victor, not Jimmy." A blush formed on his chubby cheeks.
She laughed at him. Protect, they think that Amber protects them but what they didn't know was that she only protects them for their loyalties and to escape from her loneliness.
She knew that she had their loyalties but what she didn't know was that most of them love her as their protector.
Her father was a lycan and her mother was a fey princess but Amber didn't look like them.
She can control Elements like Elemental Witches. She can control and use elements of nature, climate, space, time, create portal and explosions. She can control anyone's body. She can make their heart stop in a second. She doesn't know where she got all these powers from. Maybe someone from her ancestors was an elemental witch.
She has control over all her powers except creating portals. If she creates a portal it can leave her vulnerable by draining her energy and Amber doesn't even know where the damn portal will take her.
The last time she had created a portal it had landed her in the deadly land of Puss Demons. Their bodies had pores from which puss leaks. She was lucky to make it alive out of there.
Elemental Witches were the rarest caste of witches. They are born once in a great while. Only a few are left in this world now which makes Amber extremely rare.
"So you are the one who's hiding them. How could you be so heartless! Their mates are madly searching for them and you are hiding them here!!" Lucia yelled.
Amber gazed at the female lycan. She knew that this bitch was a nosey one. The way she had explored her land showed that she was searching for someone but Amber had ignored her for Rebecca's sake. And now Amber knows who she was searching for. . .
The lost mates of the Lycans.
"If you think that I'm heartless than you have really lived a sheltered life and I can gladly give you a few life lessons. I'm not hiding anyone, they are free to leave." Amber mumbled while caressing Jimmy's head who had taken an attacking position in front of her and was growling at Lucia.
Amber was amused by his actions. This little wolf thinks that she requires his protection.
"Than why are they not leaving!" She spat those words at her as if Amber's the reason why they were not leaving.
Ignored her Amber pulled Jimmy towards her. "Hey, there little warrior. Calm down. The Queen needs to show someone her place, why don't you go to your parents for now. We will meet here tomorrow." She said while giving him a little pat on his head. Jimmy hesitated before running towards his parents.
With her fey speed, Amber moved towards Lucia, constricting her wee neck in her unforgiving grip. Her eyes that held disrespect a few seconds ago now gazed at Amber with fear. Her body was unable to move against her command.
"Respecting me is not an option here Lucia, it's a fucking rule. Why would you risk your life for other lycans by coming here?" Amber asked.
She was literally confused, why would Lucia come here risking her life for others. She doesn't look like a social worker type.
"They are my people and they are in pain. I'm their princess and by attacking me you are signing up for a painful death. Think about what the lycans will do if they found that you are the one who is keeping their soul mates form them. And I'm sure that they are on their way to this forsaken place." She said with so much false confidence and stubbornness that only a sheltered princess can muster.
It took everything in Amber to not laugh at her. Even a dumb person can tell that she was lying.
A foolish princess~
If all the Lycans that were leading her people are like her then it's understandable why Lycans had lost their respect in the supernatural world.
"Tell me Lucia, when was the last time you interacted with your people..?" Amber asked, releasing her command on her body and dumping her on the ground like she weighed nothing.
After all, she was a princess, Amber should talk face to face or more like face to foot with her.
"I... I....it. . ." She sputtered, taken off guard by Amber's question.
"Yeah! You don't remember. You have already seen the people of your kind that resides here. They are not bound to live here, they are living here with their free will and they are free to leave whenever they want. If you were not living a sheltered life princess than you would have known that your kind had long fallen from grace. Your kind is as respectful as a dog and that makes you a bitch princess. So next time before you accuse me of your people's pain get a little knowledge of your own kind. Here no one gives a fuck that you are a princess." Lucia looked ashamed by her own ignorance. Amber looked at her with pity. . .
She had no place here. The longer she will stay here the bigger problems she will create.
"You are lucky that you reached here before the snow storm. After it ends my guards will gladly throw you out of my territory." As if on cue a guard appeared in front of Amber.
"My Queen there are two men on boarder, badly injured. It looks like they had barely survived the snow storm." The guard exclaimed.
Amber gave him an irritated look. It was not the first time strangers arrived in her Queendom. She didn't know why he was making a fuss about it!
"So you want me to welcome them!" Amber snapped.
"Yes... No! I.. I didn't..." He sputtered. She gave him a pointed look and he blurted.
"One of them claims to be the Lycan King." At his statement, Amber's eyes snapped towards Lucia.
So Lucia wasn't lying~
The bitch had her king coming after Amber. Amber looked at her face only to find an expression full of shock and horror slapped on her face.
Her expression screamed that she had no idea what the fuck was going on.
And that was how Amber's already bad day turned into a worse one. . .
