Preface

 

"Once there was a kingdom. This kingdom was divided by two princesses; one evil and one good. The good princess Anya was the princess of the northern kingdom and the evil princess, Anita was the tyrant of the southern kingdom. This is the story of how a child of both good and evil brought these two sisters together once more, but will it be for the good or the bad for the divided kingdom of Gespara?"

 

 

 

Chapter One: Anya

 

          I lived in a castle as would any princess or prince. Only instead of a doting king and queen, there was only my dying father; King Julian and myself. My name is Anya and I rule my half of the kingdom of Gespara. A land that is divided, but once long ago was whole. Since my twin sister and my mother are evil, they disagreed with many of what my father and I thought or said. They used their magic and divided my home my Gespara into, Old and New Gespara. Or North and South Gespara. Anyway my father wants me to marry so I will have a king of my own. I have someone in mind, but father would never approve, and Anita would laugh her wicked laugh; but I would be happy. Isn't that all that matters? My happiness. No what matters is my kingdom's happiness. I cannot choose Anthony as my king. Although I love him, I must sacrifice my happiness for theirs. 

            I was walking towards my father's chambers when I was pulled into the shadows, I hate the shadows they remind me of Anita and my mother. The alcove was small and I was pressed against the wall and whomever pulled me in.

 

"What in the name of Gesp-" 

"Shush now Anya." I recognized the voice of my love.

"Anthony, must you scare me so?" He looked at me with apologetic eyes before continuing.

"Anya, I'm sorry for causing a fright. I have news of what your sister is planning."

"What do you mean?" I asked pretending to be dumb. I knew very well how my sister thought, what she planned. What she did although she had no idea I knew, I knew she killed our mother the first chance she got. I didn't care, and it pained me so much when I realized I never loved mother not like how I loved our father. She was planning my undoing and she wasn't going to succeed in watching me fail to save those I loved.

 

"She wants to reunite the kingdom." Well that's new. 

"But that's good is it not?" I said naively

"No, its not 'good'. She wants to reunite it as a Evil Empire. Forged in her name, in her evil."

"Anita wouldn't stoop so low." I said, you may ask how I can defend the embodiment of evil, my only defense is that she's my sister.

"You don't know your sister, not anymore. You don't know what I have seen." Anthony answered harshly. Anthony was a soldier, a knight really.

"Alright. What do you suppose I do?"

 

The question hung in the air above us like a noose at the gallows in the courtyard. That was hardly ever used. His answer chilled me to my very core.

 

"End her before she ends you." Anthony said no remorse in his yellow cat eyes."

"I can't kill-" I started before Anthony stopped me.

"She's pure evil!" Anthony exclaimed, his eyes questioning my words.

"She's my sister, my twin. My other half. If I kill her, I kill myself."

"Who says you have to kill her?"

"Anthony, I could never be my sister." My words stabbed the darkness causing the air to grow thicker, it was as if she was there.

"I know, I'll take care of it. Anya I love you and no matter waht I won't let anyone hurt you."

"Anita is me though."

"No, Anya she's a completely different person. She kills for what she desires." A flash of recognition crossed my face as I said,

"I'm in her way." I whispered. "She wants me dead."

 

Anthony smiled briefly at me as guards walked past to relieve the ones at my father's chamber doors.

 

"You understand now, your father's insistence of your marriage?"

"And whom does he have in mind?" I asked quietly, afraid of what the answer might entail. 

"Me. He asked me to marry you." I looked up at him suddenly breathless.

"What?" I asked bewildered I was so sure my father would be against Anthony being king. Anthony didn't answer instead he slid down onto one knee and held out a polished oak box.

"Anya, Princess of the North, True heir to the Throne of Gespara: Kingdom of Salvation. Will you do me the honor of becoming my Queen?"

"Yes! Anthony yes I'll marry you!" He slid the beautiful dragon shaped diamond over my knuckle and stood, still holding my hands.

"You've made me the happiest Prince in all the land." Anthony smiled.

"You're the only prince in all the land." I smiled and kissed him sweetly on the lips. "I have to go tell Papa."

"Alright. I'll miss you." I smiled and ran out of the shadows. I am getting married. To the man I love.
