The Lycan King

Chapter 48. Sacredos


"Under no circumstance will you use your powers. They make your hair go white and your eyes blue. And we do not want?anybody?to know about then. Am I clear?" I asked. The last thing I wanted was everyone to be after her life. Revealing her secret in an unknown place is as good as suicide.

"Yes." She mumbled.

Not good enough, Love.

"I asked am I clear?" I tipped her head up so she looked at me in the eye.

"Yes." She replied, licking her lips.

I pecked her lips.

"You do not need to fear the vampires. They are your people. But that does not mean you let your guard down. We are werewolves ruling vampires. I hope you know this has never happened before for a reason." Because both our species have hated each other ever since we were created. "We need to be extra cautious. I don't want you out of my sight." I said the last sentence in my Master voice.

"Yes, Nik." She whispered.

"Good. I also want you to tie your hair up or in a braid. I don't want me touching it even by mistake and anyone seeing it change colour. I do not want to raise questions." I caressed her long locks, seeing them turn silver under my touch.

"Can you but my hair in braid, please, Jasmin?" She asked one of the slaves.

"Yes, Queen Avalyn." A slave— Jasmin got up from her kneeling position from near the wall and rushed into the dressing room. She came out with a comb and a rubber band.

She quickly put Ava's hair in a braid.

"Thank you, Jasmine." Ava said.

"You're welcome, my Queen." Jasmine said with a smile and went to kneel back in her position.

We both walked outside our bedroom and saw Rhazien talking with Vladimir and Sofiya.

"Nikolai." Rhazien straightened up when he saw me. "Avalyn." He nodded at her in acknowledgment.

"Rhazien." I nodded back.

"Hello, Rhazien. Where's Jessica?" She asked.

"She will meet us in the dining hall." He replied to her and then looked at me in worry, "you've talked to her?"

"Yes." I replied, looking down at Avalyn.

"Okay. Thanks. That's good." He said.

"Chill Rhazien. It's going to be alright." Vladimir said. It's true. The man was stressing way too much.

"You can never be extra cautious." He spoke ominously.

"What is it?" I narrowed my eyes at him. There was something he isn't telling us.

"The people are divided. The middle class and the poor ones who disliked Vasilik like the new change in power but the older and affluent families who liked him are against it." By against it, he means against us.

"He only has to keep the throne for twenty four hours before he can announce he is making me the King. Nothing much will happen in one day." Vladimir looked worried too. I'm going to have to have a talk with him about that later.

"Which also means he will stay in power for three more days after that." Rhazien said.

"What do you need me to do?" I asked.

"Rule and be the best King you can. Don't make major changes. Don't do things which will affect any of the elites in any ways. We are pretty rigid in our system and we despise change. To be honest, the only reason you are standing alive right now is because Vladimir is here with you. And people like you more because you announced him as the first in line." Rhazien said.

It was true. Vladimir being here was the only reason we were alive right now.

"I can manage to not get killed for twenty four hours." I said dryly.

"Good. Avalyn, please don't say anything about the slaves. I know you feel strongly for them but if you die, there is no saving them ever." He said in a joking manner but a growl escaped my throat.

"No one is dying." I said. "Let's go. We are late for breakfast." I took Ava's hand in mine and led her out of the door.

The guards surrounded is as we walked to the dining hall.

The guards opened the doors for us and the chattering voices stopped and everyone stood up. A sign of respect.

Suddenly a little girl ran up to us, reminding me of Vanessa. They looked like they were of the same age. But I thought Vampire kingdoms didn't have a lot of children. Whose kid is this?

The girl tugged at my jeans, making every single person in the room freeze.

"Are you the King now?" She asked loudly, her voice echoing in the deadly silent room.

"Yes." I replied.
