Fae Queen

Things are not as they seem in the Fae realm.

Rumor has it that one of the fairies has learn how to lie - something that's never been done before.
And as Queen - Felaine has the duty to find out who - and deal with them.

But that's not all - something more is on the horizon.
And she'll have to fight her way through it if she wants to stay alive.

I had left Dantor in the crowd a few minutes ago – losing him amongst the humans. I slowed my walk when I realized Dantor was so far behind me it was impossible for him to see where I had gone.

I smiled to myself, briefly looking at the others around me. Some of the girls clustered together, their arms linked together as they chatted easily. Even when I was human I never had the privilege of close friends – growing up in the outskirts of town had assured that.

I made my way to the Grande Lotus – the swankiest hotel in town, the one where my brother happened to work as a receptionist. I barely glanced at the man who opened the door for me, but made sure to tip him generously knowing full well it would make all the difference in his world.

I smiled at the lady in the reception, Clare was slightly older being a senior citizen, but everyone who walked through the hotel doors simply adored her – and I was no exception.

“Elly girl, you here to see Pete again?” Clare always somehow thought my name was Elly instead of Felaine but I never corrected her.

I nodded eagerly, watching as she motioned to the side corridor that led to the staff tea room.

“Hey big brother” I smiled when I walked into the room, stooping to give Peter a light kiss on the cheek.

“Hey Fel” He replied raising his eyebrows.

“How’s your girlfriend” I asked, noticing how his phone showed a charming picture of him and a new girl.

“Her names Taylor and we’ve been dating almost a year”

 I whistled in response, they must have gotten together soon after I had visited him last year. I avoided seeing mum, making sure to leave enough money for the both of them with him. I’m sure as far as he knew he got a yearly bonus from work which paid for all the extras they could want from life.

“What about you, how’s life treating you?” I smiled lightly as his eyes assessed my slimmer figure – since becoming Fae I had lost my curvy body and slimed down heavily. I wasn’t underweight – not in the slightest, I was still perfectly healthy – there was just less of me.

I knew that he was concerned about my weight loss, but how could I explain the changes my body had gone through over the past 5 years?

“I’m fine really” I smiled my brightest smile, feeling him calm down at the sight.


I finally broached the subject we’d been avoiding.

“How is she?” I asked, not really sure I wanted to know.

The last time I had been here she had been in intensive care following a heart attack. She’d had to have surgery while I partied the night away secretly worrying for her.

“She’s fine. Just, she’s getting old Fel.” I noticed then how dark the circles under his eyes where, and realised looking after all of mums needs especially with her getting older and needing more – it must have cost more than I was expecting.

I simply pulled out my purse, and handed him a gold credit card. One that was specifically in his name – filled with hundreds of thousands of dollars.

“The pin is 5916. It’s all in your name”

Peter stared at it with mouth agape, unsure of how to ask what I knew he was dying to know. A gold card meant that at least five figures where inside the account.

“Don’t ask” I warned, meeting his eyes. “There’s enough in there to get mum the best of care.” Pete simply nodded, carefully placing the card in his wallet as if he was afraid touching it might make it disappear.

His eyes met mine for only a few seconds before rising to check the clock, a look of surprise showed on his face as he rose.

“I’m sorry Fel; I have to get back to work. Dinner tonight?” He asked hopefully, but I could never stay in this world for so long.

I have him a tight lipped smile. “You know I can’t. I have to get back.” I said anxiously watching the time – I still wanted to get back in time to have dinner with Dantor as well as cleaning up any messes the fairies had made while topside.

“I’ll see you next year Peter, I love you” I reminded him, standing fluidly and making my way back out to the hotel, and the park that marked the entrance to my little world.

 

Dantor had found us a quiet little area under a big ancient tree, the kind that was so wide you couldn’t even fit your arms around half of it. He had spread out the blanket, and set up the different spreads and fillings. All around us groups of fairies mingled easily with their human counterparts.

 I tried not to watch over them too protectively, but I was like a mother duck with her little ducklings; they where mine to take care of. I relaxed immensely when Dantor pulled me into his arms, pulling me to sit in his lap, his lips tickling my ear.

“Enjoy your alone time my Queen?” He asked, a smug smile playing at his lips. He was one of the few people who had a suspicion about where I disappeared to every year but he always pretended to never notice my disappearance.

I smiled in response, settling into my place opposite him leaning against the tree for support. Dantor served sandwiches – one filled with each of the different spreads he had acquired while I was with Peter.

 He halved all of them, splitting them equally between us so that we each had three whole sandwiches each.  I quickly bit into mine, the flavour of ham and cheese filling my mouth and I smiled closing my eyes briefly totally content for the time being.

“My Queen, Beterm wishes your attention.” Dantor interrupted my meditation time and I sighed deeply before finally turning a cold glare on Beterm who waited timidly nearby.

“A favour my Queen.” He bowed quickly, and I searched the area, only to find a young girl about 13 who stared at him with puppy dog eyes.

“No.” I answered quickly sending daggers with my eyes. “Bring the child here.” My voice was quiet and powerful, and all the Fae nearby had heard me.

Beterm brought the girl quickly, and encouraged her to curtsey, which she did clumsily.

“Look at me child.” I informed her, locking my eyes into hers, searching her memories, almost flinching when I skidded past the memory of her kissing Beterm. I meddled with her memories of the last few hours, taking away some, and simply altering others.

When I was finished, her eyes where glazed and she stared at nothing.

“Take her home.” I ordered Beterm before turning to Dantor.

“It’s time to go home.” Was all I said, before gathering myself up and heading to the door, knowing he would make all the arrangements to have everyone home before the moon rose.
