Oliford

















The Castle
the centre of royal life
The castle sits at the centre of sprawling grounds containing gardens, training arenas, barracks, the royal stables and Lake Lilith, which is fed by the River Twinge. The royal guards which are stationed at various points around the territory will occasionally check fairiesí identities but are usually happy to let visitors wander around, unless the king orders otherwise. Within the castle itself, the west wing is the personal residence of the royal family, the east wing is the home of the court and the servantsí quarters on the lower levels. The castle is practically impregnable and is well-guarded against attack.

I never take my eyes off her as she stands there glaring at me. What a strange woman. I mean I'd seen plenty in my time but no one like her. Iíd call her irrational, but I could be wrong. I wasnít about to tell her that to be honest. I scratch behind my ear as I hear someone sneeze and it distracts me momentarily, but not to take my eyes off her. No way. She lets the boy go and I smile. See, that wasnít so difficult now was it? The growling had stopped in my throat but the caution remains. I didnít like her. I wasnít about to lie. She had a look about her that rang all the alarm bells in my head. Mind you, I hadnít come across a woman that didnít to be honest. Iíd slept with enough to know.


She was correct in assuming it wasnít my son and I raise my brows at her tone. Sheesh, my dislike of her was growing. But as Iíd thought before, there was normally a lot more than what met the eye. That didnít go as far as to say I was about to run over to her, give her a big hug and congratulate her on her achievement of, well done, you didnít kill the boy, here have a gold star. I knew that boy wasnít mine, if it had been, Iíd have tore her throat out where she stood. No, it was the notion I had a boy myself, newborn, that had sparked me into knowing this was wrong. That boy had parents somewhere and I wasnít about to have passed by and left him to die.


Your point being? No one should die by the hand of another. Itís commonsense woman, no matter how crazy you might appear to be.


I step towards her. Like hell I was afraid of her when another woman ran up. By god, how many women were hanging around here, I swear theyíd fall out of the trees if they could be bothered to climb up. She notices me, I know she does, but it would seem to be the woman she is talking to, not me. So I stand in silence. This was no longer my fight now that the boy was gone, but this woman unnerved me, this woman with the knife. And I wasnít about to hear about her slitting this other womanís throat when I knew I could have stayed to prevent it.
