The hunter

Sky is a talent. A rare exception to teh evryday human. She had magic cousing thorugh her veins. The only problem is she doesn't know what it does. Can her two mysterious cloaked figures help her find out? or will the kingdoms fall into war with a greater evil?


6. Strangers

Walking into the main hall, we were announced as 'His highness Prince Edward and his date for this evening, Lady Skyler Eboni Woodworth'.

We had arrived at the height of the party, so at our announcement over 400 heads turned to stare as we walked down the white marble steps to the edge of the dance floor. At once I noticed the tables spread out around the edge of room and the table directly opposite from the main entrance which was raised on a platform.

It was the kings table, raised above the other table to show the significance of the power of the king and his special guests. As I was accompanying the prince, I would sit there along with the king, the queen, the princes, the royal visitors and any noble men who were currently in the king's favour.

Looking around at the people in the hall, it was easy to pick out the Eyenians. They wore mostly dark browns and blacks with small patches of bright colours. And there style was more casual than that of the Ferinians. They didn't wear waistcoats, just patterned shirts and brown trousers. The prince (at least I'm guessing he was the prince because of his posture and the way everyone curtsied or bowed before talking to him) also wore a black cloak and at that moment was talking to one of his guards.

I couldn't help noticing two figures cloaked in black at the back of the prince's entourage. Everyone avoided them, no one spoke to them and because of the way the light was shining from being them, the shadows of their cloaks hid their faces from view. I was going to get a closer look (something about the figures intrigued me) but just then a steward announced that everyone should take their seats ready for the king's entrance. So I resigned to wait for a better opportunity to investigate.
