Edit: since I finished this, I have made major changes to Chesha and her story. I will be rewriting this

Chesha is the elven princess of Aakridi, a planet across the sun from Earth. When heroes arrive at her planet unexpectedly with a human girl who looks oddly like Chesha, weird things start to happen.

Book 1 of Obsidian Series


1. Chesha

They call me Chesha. I'm the princess of Aakridi, a planet on the opposite side of the sun. It's larger than earth, much larger, but looks like it from space. But once you're on it, that's a different story. We know about earth, earth doesn't know we exist. My father and brothers are elves, full elves, except me, and they look nothing like me. But my dad says my mother looked like me. And I have cool powers so that's okay.

Right now, Rigslam, or my dad, is lecturing me about how even though Aakridi is peaceful that could all change so I'd have to be ready to fight. Like I'm not. I've gotten in plenty of "skirmishes" as Muuko, my oldest brother, likes to call them.

"Dad." I interrupted his lecture.

"Yes?" He looked at me and scratched his short white beard.

Most elven men shaves their beards but some, like Rigslam, liked to have short ones.

"What you're basically telling me is that I'm going to have to train every day to be prepared for battles that will most likely not happen?" I raised my eyebrows.

"Way to sum it all up." He chuckled.  

"It's a gift my mother had." I rolled my eyes.

My mother had married Rigslam after his first wife, the mother of Muuko and Koquz, had been poisoned. My mother died during child birth.

"Yes. Your mother gave you many gifts." He kissed my forehead. "You can go out and do whatever you do today."

"Tomorrow I'll have to train though, right?" I stood.

Rigslam nodded. I walked out of the dining hall and out the palace doors. I placed my hands on my hips at the top of the stairs and breathed in a breath of the beautiful Aakridi air. Sure, like anyone would want to ruin such a great place. I thought as my eyes scanned the palace yard and out past the wall to the town and fields.

"So you survived his lectures, eh?" Koquz walked to me.

He was the younger of the two boys but taller and more muscular.

"Yeah, it's easy. Just cut him off and sum the whole thing up." I said.

He rolled his eyes. Koquz was the 'rebel' brother but he had a soft spot for me. We walked past the guards into the town.

"Don't worry. We'll get out of training more than a few times." Koquz winked.

"Good because unlike you and Muuko I have a life." I put my hand on my chest.

He tried to look offended. "I have a life! Muuko though..."

I laughed. "Pwincess!" A child's voice called to me.

I looked at Hiwel. He jumped into my arms and I ruffled his already messy, short green hair. "Stop that." He pushed my hand off.

I started to count his freckles on his cheeks and nose. His ice blue eyes went cross eyed. "You have...six hundred freckles!" I joked.

"No!" He gasped.

He was only a few years old, very young for an elf but like a toddler or child in human years. "Hey Hiwel, don't I get a hi?" Koquz held out his arms.

"Hi Pwince Koquz!" Hiwel jumped into his arms.

Koquz also had a soft spot for Hiwel. "Koquz!" Muuko's voice called from behind.

I looked. He held a broken carving. He didnt look happy to see his younger twin. "I HAVE A CHILD!" Koquz held Hiwel out in front.

I grabbed Hiwel. "Not anymore." Koquz shot me a look.

"Why the hell did you break this?" Muuko stormed up. "You know how damn hard it was to make it?"

"That piece of shit? Lemme guess...an hour?" Koquz crossed his arm.

"Language." I said as I walked away with Hiwel on my shoulders.

I dropped him off at the orphanage, because, well he was an orphan. "I'm going to hunt. Ill catch you a squirrel, ok?" I tapped his nose.

"Ok!" He smiled and walked inside.
