Valentine’s Special

WARNING: Contains nudity

Screenshot-2940

My parent’s were throwing another one of their royal parties. And of course, I wasn’t invited. They never let me join in their parties, they said they didn’t want me to get hurt. How could I possibly get hurt at a party? All they do is dance to classical music and eat fancy foods. I couldn’t see the danger in that.

But that’s my parents for you. They never let me leave my room, no matter what. I couldn’t even go to school, I had my own personal tutor. But all I really wanted was to go to school, meet actual people other than my constantly changing nannies and my tutor. It was a lonely life that no one should have to live.

They coddled me like this for a good reason though. They were the king and queen of all the fae in the world, and I was the only heir to the throne. After my mother had me, they could never conceive another child, so I had to be protected at all costs. If something happened to me, the entire empire would fall. So yea, they had a good reason. But that didn’t make it suck any less.

I laid across my bed, chewing the bottom of my pen while thinking what to write. It was almost impossible to concentrate when I knew there were people downstairs. Homework was the last thing on my mind right now.

I pulled myself into a sitting position. I was tired of this. I didn’t want to be the princess locked away in her tower for the rest of my life. I wanted to be the bad-ass princess who defeats a dragon or something cool like that.

That’s when I made the decision to join the party. I mean, what could my parents do? They wouldn’t yell at me in front of their guests, they wouldn’t want to make a scene. I could just go down there and meet a few people, there should be no harm in that. I immediately jumped off my bed to start getting ready. I didn’t have a hair and makeup crew, but I’ve seen them do it so many times I think I could do it on my own.

Screenshot-2943

I didn’t have many fancy dresses, but I did have my favorite dress. I hoped it would be acceptable, I didn’t want to be under-dressed. But I guess I didn’t really have a choice.

Screenshot-2945

“Okay, this can’t be that hard.” I told myself as I approached the mirror. I took out my casual braids and brushed out my hair.

Screenshot-2948

When I was all finished, I didn’t look half bad. I hoped my parents thought I looked acceptable, I really wanted to show them that I was capable of taking care of myself.

I took a deep breath while standing in front of the mirror. Here goes nothing. I thought to myself just before I turned around and headed out my bedroom door. Screenshot-2950

I made it to the hallway above the main staircase before I lost all my confidence. Maybe my parents were right, maybe this wasn’t a good idea.

No, I can’t back out now. I’ve made it this far, I can do this. 

Screenshot-2951

I guess my little self pep-talk worked, because before I knew it I was descending the staircase.

Screenshot-2952

The music was a lot louder than I anticipated. It was classical music, they didn’t need to blare it so loudly. There also weren’t as many people there as I thought there would be. But the party was just starting, I guess more people would be coming later.

I decided to get some fresh air before my parents saw me, I didn’t want to have to leave right after I got there.

Screenshot-2954

I only took a few steps before bumping smack into someone.

Screenshot-2957

“Oh I’m so sorry ma’am, I should’ve been watching where I was going.” The boy said. He looked about my age, and he was extremely cute. What my luck, huh?

“Don’t be, it’s fine.” I assured him. “I’m Princess Flora. Who are you?”

“Reed Green. I am so sorry Princess, I had no idea who you were” He started to bow, but I stopped him.

Screenshot-2958

“Please don’t. I just want to be a normal girl tonight.”

“Well, this is a royal party, it isn’t very normal” He joked, and I laughed. Reed seemed really cool.

“What are you doing here? Are you royal too?” I asked, but I guess that was rude because he got uncomfortable.

“Um, I’m a waiter here tonight. I’m working off my father’s debt.” He explained nervously.

“Oh, well I’m sure my parents wouldn’t mind if you took a few minutes off to dance with me.”

“You want to dance with me?” He sounded surprised. I nodded and grabbed his hand.

Screenshot-2963

“Why wouldn’t I want to? You’re a great guy, Reed. Status means nothing to me.”

“I don’t think your parents have the same views, Princess.” He said, and I glared at him. “Sorry, I just think it’d be rude not to address you with your title. It’s not how I was raised.”

“Well then forget I even have a title. It’s just Flora. That’s it.”

Screenshot-2964

He spun me around, making me giggle like a child. “You’re a great dancer, Reed. Where did you learn to dance?”

“My mother. She was a professional.”

“You definitely have some of her talent.” I gushed.

“Thank you.”

Screenshot-2967

“You’re a very beautiful girl, Flora.” Reed told me as we swayed to the music.

“Thanks, you’re not too bad yourself.” I said, making him laugh.

“Thanks. Hey, so do you wanna get out of here? So we can talk without the loud music?”

“Sure, let’s go up to my bedroom.” I offered.

Screenshot-2968

I looked back at my parents, who were still dancing happily with the other couples. They didn’t notice I was here, so they wouldn’t notice if I was gone.

Screenshot-2975

I changed into something a little more comfortable after Reed and I came upstairs. I couldn’t sit on the floor in the dress, it was too tight for that.

“So, I like your room.” He glanced around my bedroom.

“Thanks, but I’m completely sick of it.”

“Why? It’s nice.”

“Well it’s really the only room I’m allowed in, besides the dining room and the library.” I sighed. I was so tired of this.

“Oh. I’m sorry.”

“It’s not your fault. I’m just tired of being shut out from the world. I want to be able to do what I want.” I started to sob. This was the first time I was saying any of this out loud. I couldn’t talk to my parents, they wouldn’t listen.Screenshot-2976

Reed scooted next to me and wrapped his arm around my waist. “It’s gonna be okay, I’ll try and get you out of here.”

“But if I leave, they won’t have an heir to the throne.”

“You have distant relatives, I bet they’d take the throne. Don’t worry about it. I can help.” I did have other relatives, but I wasn’t sure if it worked that way. But honestly, I didn’t care. I wanted out.

“I’m in.” I jumped up excitedly.

“Oh good, I would hate for you to spend the rest of your life up here until you’re arranged to be married.”

Screenshot-2978

I kissed him. I didn’t know him very well, but I did know that I wanted to be with him. I didn’t want to be here anymore. I wanted to be somewhere else, with Reed.

“I feel like I’ve known you my whole life.” Reed whispered.

“Me too.” I tugged on his shirt and pulled him onto my bed.

Screenshot-2980

“I want you, Reed.” I’ve seen enough romance movies to know where to go with this.

“A-are you sure?” He sounded nervous.

“Positive.”

~

Screenshot-2982

“That was fun.” I beamed at Reed after we finished.

“Yea, it was.”

But little did I know that that night would change my life, and the kingdom, forever.

Primrose Fae Chapter 13: Upsets and Downfalls

Screenshot-1753

“River, what’s up?” I asked my teenage son as he nervously sat down next to me on the bed.

“M-mom, I um, discovered something, a few years ago. Dill and I snuck out, and we went to the cemetery.” He started, glancing at me nervously. I shut my laptop and raised an eyebrow at him. “Well, um have you seen those two graves next to Chrissy?”

I nodded. “I’ve seen them a few times, but not up close. Why?”

“Well we got up close, and well, the graves belong to Reed and Flora Fae.” Screenshot-1757

I stared at him for a second, trying to read his expression. Was this some kind of prank? How could he know my parents names? River wasn’t the kind to joke around like this. I rolled over on the bed and faced the wall.

“Mom?”

“River, you’re being completely serious, right?” I asked.

“I am. And I um, talked to Flora.”

“What? She’s been dead longer than you’ve been alive. That’s impossible.” The last part was more to convince myself, I knew River wouldn’t make something like this up, but this sounded ridiculous.

“I know.”

Screenshot-1760

I jumped up off the bed and grabbed my phone. If River wasn’t lying, I knew Basil and I had to go check.

“Mom what’re you doing?”

“Calling your uncle.” The phone rang a few times before he answered with a hushed hello. Basil was an aspiring author, and spent lots of time working in the library. “Basil, I need you to meet me at the cemetery in ten minutes.”

“What? Prim what’s up?”

“I’ll explain when you get there.” I hung up the phone and ran out the bedroom door.

——

Screenshot-1766

“Prim, what’s going on?” Basil said breathlessly as he ran up behind me.

“It’s them.” I choked.

“What?” He looked down at the graves

Screenshot-1764

“Flora Fae? Is that mom?” I nodded and his eyes widened. “Prim, how is this possible?”

“I-I don’t know. River told me he found this a few years ago.”

“Prim, Basil, what are you two doing here?” An eerie voice sounded from behind us.

Screenshot-1768

“What’re you kids doing here?” A red, transparent figure repeated.

“Mom, dad? Is that you?” Basil cocked his head.

“It is. You can see us? Both of you?” We nodded, glancing at each other.

“We don’t have much time kids, we’ve got something we need to tell you.” My dad’s deep booming voice stated.

“Right, right. Okay, so I know you both know about my past, so I’m going to make this brief.” My mom started, but I stopped her.

“Wait, what do you mean we know about your past?”

“Don’t you remember dear, your friend came to you in a dream and told you everything.” I suddenly remember that dream I had the night after Chrissy passed. I had never given it much thought, I always assumed I was just grieving.

“Yea, but wasn’t that just a dream?”

“Just because its a dream doesn’t mean it’s not real.” My mother giggled.

Screenshot-1772

My father stepped away from my mother, to let her explain whatever it was she was about to tell us.

“So you both know, I was next in line for the crown. Since the humans have taken control over you for now, I need one of you to continue the family line. Primrose, I know you already have children, so I want your family to continue our legacy. One day when we gain our control back from the humans, I want our family to take control again. You’ve already done your part, now all you need is to get one of your kids to pass it on.” She was talking so fast it made my brain buzz, but I understood what she was saying. She wasn’t asking a lot from me, but a lot from my son and his kids.

“Do you know how much longer they’re gonna be in power?” Basil inquired.

“No, we don’t. But we probably won’t gain our power back during your lifetime, or your children’s. It’s gonna take a long time, but we need to prepare them.”  She responded, and he nodded. “Do you understand Primrose? This is extremely important.”

“Yea, I do.”

“Good. But if you have any more questions, you can come here at night. Sometimes we’re out but sometimes we’re not. You can always just call our names and we’ll be out as soon as possible.” She smiled and fingered her transparent braid. “We best be going now, Honey.” She turned to my dad and he nodded.

“Wait!” I burst without realizing. The looked at me curiously. “H-how is Chrissy?” I needed to know. A small smile played against my father’s face.

“She’s doing great.” He told me, and then they vanished.

Screenshot-1774

“Did that really just happen?” Basil asked. I didn’t answer him, I knew the question wasn’t directed at me.

“That was a little heavy.” I remarked, he nodded.

“You okay?”

“I don’t know.” I answered honestly.

Screenshot-1777

“I can talk to them if you want.” Basil offered. I nodded, and pulled him toward me.

“I want River to pass it down to his kids, he’s more trustworthy.” I mumbled into his shoulder.

“Good choice.” We giggled, we both knew Poppy was a lot more trouble than her brother. “C’mon, let’s get you home. It’s getting cold.” He wrapped his arm around my shoulders and guided me out of the cemetery.

——

Screenshot-1806

“Ugh, seriously Mom?” Poppy groaned as we approached the store. I felt bad about choosing River over her, so I decided to take her out for some mother-daughter bonding.

“What’s wrong with this place? I get all of my clothes here!”

Screenshot-1808

“Yea, exactly.” She mumbled. I ignored her, and pulled her inside the building. I knew she wasn’t too thrilled to be here, one of her friends was having a pool party today. I would’ve let her go if it wasn’t about to rain.

Screenshot-1811

“Oh Poppy, how do you like this shirt?” I asked, pulling a cute pink top off the rack.

“Gross mom. It’s way too conservative.” She snapped her gum and crossed her arms.

“It’s a t-shirt, Sweetheart.” She rolled her eyes. I knew she didn’t want to do this but her attitude was getting on my nerves. “Fine, I’ll go look in the tank top section.”

Screenshot-1813

“This is so dumb.” She muttered under her breath as I was walking away. She must’ve thought I wouldn’t hear her.

“What was that Poppy?”

“Nothing.”

“No, I could’ve sworn that you said that this was dumb. Sorry I’m actually trying to spend time with you.” She swung around to face me.

Screenshot-1817

“Forcing me to come with you to some shitty old store isn’t my idea of fun, Mom. I’d much rather be with my friends right now, but I have to spend my time with you! It sucks!” She screamed.

“I’m sorry I’m so terrible to be around, Poppy. I never see you anymore, you’re always out with your friends. I love you and I just wanted to spend some time with you.” It hurt, my own daughter not wanting to spend time with me.

“Liar. You don’t love me. If you loved me you would’ve picked me!”

Screenshot-1819

“You can’t just pick my loser brother to do something so important, then expect me to forgive you with a dumb shopping trip? That’s not how it works, you can’t just buy my love!”

“Poppy, is that what you think I’m doing? I thought you liked shopping, I wasn’t trying to buy your love.”

“I do, but not in dumpy places like this. I bet RIVER likes places like this, he’s such a little kiss up. You love him so much more than you love me, you should’ve taken him today instead of me.”

Screenshot-1824

“Is that what you really think? I don’t love him more. I love you both equally. But if it’s really that terrible spending time with me, I guess we can go home.”

“Mom… Don’t try and guilt trip me.” She warned.

“I’m not, I’m just disappointed. I never really got to know my mom, I would’ve loved to do something like this with her.”

Screenshot-1828

“God Mom, you’re making me feel bad.”

“Well you have been pretty rude.”

Screenshot-1831

“I’m sorry” Poppy said as she pulled me into a hug.

“I’m sorry too, why don’t we go find a shop that you like?” I offered.

“I’d like that.”

*River*

Screenshot-1839

“I wish everyday could be like this.” Clover sighed and laid he head on my shoulder. My parents were on a date that night, Poppy was out with some friends, Uncle Basil was at the library, and her dad was at some meeting for work. We had both houses to ourselves.

“Me too.” I kissed her forehead. “But we’ve only got a few years until we can move out together.”

“I know, I just wish it were sooner.”

“These years will fly by, I promise.” I kissed the tip of her nose softly, making her giggle.

Screenshot-1840

“I hope so. It’s killing me, not being able to kiss you whenever I want.”

“You can kiss me now.” I murmured. We made out for a while after, and I couldn’t help but feel kinda weird about it, I was legal and she wasn’t. But no one had to know.

“Hey Babe, its almost ten, my parents are gonna be home soon.” I told her a little while later. She jumped off my lap and headed for the door.

“Oh shit, I’ve got so much homework.”

“Do you need help with it?” I offered.

“No I’m good. Walk me out?” She asked, and I nodded, pulling the door open for her.

Screenshot-1841

She jumped into my arms when we stepped out the door. I almost tumbled backward, but I caught myself before I could.

“Night River.” She purred.

“Night Clo.” I kissed her hard then set her down. “Get home safe.” I joked, and she giggled and ran off.

Screenshot-1845

The next morning I went out for coffee with a high school friend. I came home a bit earlier than I anticipated, and discovered something I really didn’t want to see.

Screenshot-1843

My baby sister had her lips all over some punk in the middle of our room.

“Poppy, what the hell is going on in here?” I raged. She was barely fourteen and already had a boy alone in our room.

Screenshot-1848

They jumped away from each other, both of them looking extremely guilty.

“H-hi River. How was c-coffee?” Poppy stammered nervously.

“Don’t change the subject Poppy, what the hell was going on in here?”

Screenshot-1851

“Why do you care? Aloe is my boyfriend, I can kiss him if i want to!” She launched at me, her face scrunched up in fury.

“No you can’t, you’re only fourteen! You shouldn’t be near boys.”

“I don’t care what you say, you’re not my father!”

“Yea? Well I bet he wouldn’t be too happy to hear about this.”Screenshot-1852

“Y-you’re gonna tell Daddy?”

“Of course I am! What else would I do?”

“You could keep it a secret!”

“I can’t keep this a secret, Poppy. This isn’t safe.”

Screenshot-1854

“God River, why do you have to ruin everything for me?” She threw her hands in the air angrily.

“What have I ruined for you? Your chance of getting pregnant at fourteen?”

“Oh my god River, we were just kissing! You’re such a kill joy!”

“I don’t care!” I screamed back. I was glad we were so close with our neighbors, or they’d probably call the cops with all the screaming going on over here.

“You’re ruining my only chance at love!” Screenshot-1855

“You don’t know anything about love, Poppy. You’re way to young to even be thinking about it!”

“Oh yea? And what do you know about love, Mr. ‘I’ve never had a girlfriend'” She mocked. I narrowed my eyes. I wanted to scream that I did have a girlfriend, but I knew I couldn’t give us away like that.

“I know a lot more than you do!”

“I doubt it! Now leave us alone, we were having much more fun without you.”

“No.” I growled.

Screenshot-1861

Suddenly, she swung at me, leaving a stinging feeling across my cheek.

“POPPY FAE, WHAT IS GOING ON IN HERE?” Our mother’s voice yelled from behind me. She must’ve heard us fighting. Hell I bet the entire town heard us fighting.

“I came home from coffee, and I found Poppy kissing this punk.” I gestured to the scared teenage boy hovering behind my sister.

Screenshot-1863

“Poppy, I told you no boys in your room! Do you ever listen to me?” My mom lunged at her.

“That’s a stupid rule.”

“I don’t care if you think it’s stupid. I’m you’re mother and you will obey my rules, you understand me?”

Screenshot-1864

“You can’t always tell me what to do!”

“As long as you’re living under my roof, you will listen to me.”

“Yea, whatever.”

“Also, you can’t be hitting your brother.”

Screenshot-1869

“Aw, does little baby River need his Mommy to stick up for him? How sad.” She mocked. I balled my fists and bit my tongue. She was really pissing me off.

“Poppy, you get this boy out of your room right now.” My mom’s voice growled, she sounded like a demon when she said it.

“Whatever, c’mon Aloe, let’s go to the beach.” She reached out for the boy’s hand but he didn’t grab it back.

Screenshot-1872

“Oh hell no. You’re not going anywhere with him. You’re not going anywhere for a loooong time.”

“Why?”

“Why? Why? Are you serious Poppy? You’re grounded for a long time.” She put her fists on her hips and turned to the teenage boy. “And you, get the hell out of my house.” He nodded and ran out as fast as he could. Little punk.

Screenshot-1877

“Thanks Mom, you just scared off my boyfriend! Now he’ll probably break up with me!” She cried, tears threatening to spill from her makeup rimmed eyes.

“I don’t care.” Mom screamed, and stomped out of the room. I quickly followed behind her, I didn’t want to be stuck in the room alongside the spawn of Satan.

A/N There are only one or two more chapters left of Primrose’s generation, then we can start on River’s. Thanks so much for reading, it means so much to me.

Generation 1: Prologue

Screenshot-3

I grew up in a very loving home for the first nine years of my life. My parents were happily married, my little brother and I were the best of friends. My dad had a job in the military, and my mother stayed home and home schooled me and my brother. As you might notice, we aren’t human. We are fairies, and we live in a town full of supernaturals, hidden away from the humans.

Screenshot-6

My dad wasn’t home often, so it was usually just the three of us in our small mountain home.

Screenshot-5

Even though he was away most of the time, my parents never stopped loving each other. In fact, I think it made them love each other even more.

If I knew then what I knew now, I would know that this happy little family unit couldn’t last forever.

Screenshot-9

I remember the day just like it was yesterday. My brother Basil and I were playing with our dolls while our mother prepared us lunch. Our playtime was interrupted by a loud knock at the door. I jumped, we never got visitors up here besides the mail. My brother continued to play, as he was deaf and the knock did not disturb him.

My mother left the kitchen, her face panicked. Screenshot-12

She hugged me and said “Primrose, take your brother in my room and hide. Don’t make a sound. Don’t come out until I come for you.”

I started to protest, but she stopped me.

“Please Prim.” the fear in her voice persuaded me not to object again, so I took Basil’s hand and led him to the room.

Screenshot-10

There was another knock, much louder this time. I could hear the door starting to splinter, and dove under the bed with my brother.

Screenshot-32

I heard someone kick down the door  and my mother scream. It was one of those screams that stay with you forever. I didn’t want to hear anymore, so I covered my ears.

Screenshot-13

A man’s voice started yelling at my mother, in a language I couldn’t understand. Her screams were muffled now, and I assumed this person put something over her mouth. I could hear her struggle, she was punching, kicking and screaming. She fought hard, my mother did. She had always been stubborn, a trait she passed down to me. My mothers resistance had given me hope. I hoped she could overtake this man,and get us out of here safely. But my hopes were crushed as soon as they appeared. Silence fell over the small house, followed by the thump of a body hitting the floor.

Screenshot-17

Even though I was so young, I understood what happened. This man had killed my mother. Or at least knocked her out. I heard him speak again, this time to a person who was not there. He was still speaking the strange language, so I could not make out what he was saying or who he was talking to.

Screenshot-19

Then the man left. I didn’t move from under the bed though, I didn’t want to risk it. Basil started to fuss. He was hungry. I quieted him down though, he always did as I asked.

Screenshot-20

To say I was scared was an understatement. I was terrified. I had no idea what was going on, why this man was in my house and why he had to hurt my mother. Hundreds of questions ran through my mind. I didn’t know it then, but those questions would be answered soon.

Screenshot-21

My dad was currently stationed at the base here in Moonlight Falls. This meant he could come home for lunch. He was supposed to be home any minute, and this man was still here.

Screenshot-25

I heard the low rumble of my family’s used car. My father was home. His car door slammed, and he started to yell. He was screaming at this man, asking him what he was doing, why he was here and where we were. The man didn’t say anything, either he couldn’t understand my father or he just didn’t care.

I heard a loud smack, a thud, and then silence.

Screenshot-27

The man started speaking to my father. He spoke calmly, but very loud.

Screenshot-36

My father screamed out in pain. I thought the man was killing him, just like my mother only minutes before.

The man was still talking, but now his voice sounded softer. Almost gentle. A car door opened, closed, then the car drove off.

Screenshot-28

We waited a while, and we didn’t hear anything else. I finally crawled out from under the bed and pulled basil out with me. He was confused and upset, so I gave him a hug to calm him down. He instantly relaxed in my arms as I rubbed circles on his back. Mama had taught me that trick, but I didn’t want to think about that right now.

Screenshot-37

I released him from my hug and knelt down in front of him. ‘I’m gonna go bye-bye for a little bit. I’ll be back soon.’ I signed. He was only 2 1/2, but he already knew how to sign lots of things. He nodded. He started to cry again, making me want to stay, but I needed to get help. I kissed his hand, and walked away.

Screenshot-29

Little did I know, I would never see my little brother again.

I lost my entire family in one day.

All because the humans found out about us.
