Hold the Throne

Once they put his now cold frozen body in the ground I officially became the Queen. I was going to finish what my father started. I was going to become the Queen and hold the throne.

3. Mercy is for the Weak

Blue P.O.V. 

It's been a day since I was named Queen. I've already started planning attack strategies for the war on Michael. I was determined to bring him down. I wanted him dead. I wanted to show his people that we were a nice nation but we weren't afraid to defend ourselves. 

I was mapping the land when a knock on the door stops me. 

"Come in," I say without looking up. 

The door creaks open and I see one of the guards from yesterday in the Cathedral.

"Did you find the man?"

He nods.

"Open your mouth and speak up"

"Um yes we did your highness," He says and bows. 

"Just call me Queen okay? And what's your name?"

"Joseph McHale. My father used to work for your dad before he retired"

"Oh Derek right?"

"Yes Queen"

"Alright take the man to town's square and have the guillotine ready," I say and dismiss him.

"But I thought you were going to hang him not cut his head off," He breathes.

"I'm making a point to Michael and do you wanna go with him?"

He shook his head quickly.

"Wonderful now go"

He bows then leaves.

I look up and see the family portrait hanging.  

"I'll get him father," I whisper to it. 

I put the maps and books back into drawers and lock the room up. 

"Where are you going Blue," I hear mother yell. 

"They found him.They found the man who killed father and he is going to pay for what he did," I say walking fast. 

"Honey you need to stop this," She say and turns me around. 

"Why?"

"Because you don't want Izzy (Esmeralda's nickname) to see that"

"Well then don't come," I say blankly and pull my arm from hers. 

"I'm doing this for father and if you don't like it I don't care. I'm going to avenge him"

"John get the car. We're going to the town's square"

He nods and along with three armed guards we exit the castle. I get in the back and the other guards sit with me and we're squished. 

"Queen no disrespect but you'd think with all the money we have you could buy a bigger vehicle," The tall one says. 

"I'll put it on the to do list along with killing Michael," I mutter and look out the window. 

I guess people had heard about the soon to be killing of the slayer of my father and they were all driving and walking to the town's square. There were no children going though. 

We arrive and I'm shocked at the man in chains. It was the old man I seen on the sidewalk with little girl. And in the crowd the little girl was crying once more trying to get to I guess her grandfather. They look similar with their dark hair and piercing green eyes. 

I walk up to the man and when he meets my eyes he looks down. 

"I'm so sorry Queen. I just had to feed my granddaughter. Her mother gave her up to me and she was hungry and please have mercy on me. I didn't mean to kill him. The man offered me money and I never got it just please," He cried. 

His green eyes watered and they reminded me of green paint when you mix it with water. 

I looked at him. Studying his wrinkled face. 

"Mercy is for the weak," I say darkly. 

His eyes widen and he shake his eyes. 

"Please have mercy-

"Shut up!"

"I'm feeling very generous today and I'll make you a deal. If you serve as a one of my maids men then you're granddaughter can stay with me"

The crowd began to yell and whisper. 

"Yes. Yes I accept," He sniffled. 

I nod and take the key from one of the guards and unlock the chains. 

"Now get in the car and don't mutter a word or I'll cut your head off myself"

He nods and walks to the car. I follow him when I feel something hit the my leg. I look down and see an arrow. I can't feel any pain but I'm bleeding. I look at the crowd and see a man looking right back at me. 

"King Edward would have killed him. You're weak. A false Queen. You can't protect us if you can't even protect yourself," He chuckled. 

I pull the arrow out of my leg and stick it in his throat. His dark eyes go wide and he grabs his throat. 

"I'm anything but weak. I'll hold the throne even if that means I have to kill everyone who disagrees with me. I am the Queen."

I push him back and he falls to the ground. His blood had covered my dress and some of my face. 

The crowd is staring at me blankly.

"Now all of you go home. And if you wanna argue then I have enough bullets in my gun for you," I shout. 

They give a small bow and go back to their cars or began to walk home. 

"Queen Blu-

I shake my head and walk towards the little girl. Her dark curls were now covering her face. I pick her up and sit her on my hip. 

"W-where are we going," She whispers. 

"Home"
