Hii this is my first fictionpress... I also have a fanfiction account, which is SuperSalemance.

Prologue: Twelve Years Ago

"The princess should learn a bit more, Queen Safaria."

Queen Safaria glared at the king. "Are you saying that your cute little worthless baby Prince Lucas is smarter than my dearest, most talented Princess Crystal, King Bryce?"

King Byrce shook his head. "No, no, no, of course not. I just think that only learning about fighting, our history, and survival isn't enough."

Queen Safaria looked confused. "What else is there for her to possibly learn?"

"Well, she should learn more about human beings and learn to be more like a lady," King Bryce replied.

Queen Safaria shook her head. "It's useless to learn more about humans, they never bother us, and she can learn to be like a lady naturally."

King Bryce shook his head. "If that's what you wish, Queen Safaria, I am merely trying to give suggestions to help improve our kingdoms."

"Is that all you came here for, King Bryce? If so, then I suggest you to leave."

King Bryce shook his head. "No, no, no. I also have another thing to discuss. It's about my son, Prince Lucas."

Queen Safaria looked irritated. "What about that disgusting brat?"

"The Overlord expects us to join forces by bringing Prince Lucas and Princess Crystal together."

Queen Safaria slammed her fist on the table. "Definitely not."

"The Overlord orders it."

Queen Safaria looked troubled. "If the Overlord orders it, then I have no choice but to accept..." she mumbled. "Ok, then, on Princess Crystal's eighteenth birthday, she will meet Prince Lucas. It is then her decision whether she accepts him or not," Queen Safaria decided.

"It's decided then, on her eighteenth birthday, she will meet Prince Lucas and decide her fate, agreed?"

"Agreed. If you're done here, you may leave."

King Byrce stood up, ready to leave, paused, and asked, "Are you still angry at me for what I did eight years ago?"

Queen Safaria replied coldly, "Yes. What you did was unacceptable. I only allowed you in because I had to. I would've killed you if you came here without the pass from the Overlord."

King Bryce sighed. "Well, then, I'm sorry, Safaria, I'm really, really sorry. It was a tragedy indeed," he said, and then he left.

Queen Safaria put her head down and started crying softly as painful memories flooded through her mind.
