So like I said in my previous blog, that I was working on a new story, I am really honored to say that it is almost ready. However, I still decided to post it in parts since that way I get more time to come up with new and different ideas. So here is the struggle for power part 1:
Even with scorching hot sand kissing my feet, I knew I had to move forward. On the other side of the sea, lies my people, my family and most importantly, my crown. The water brought me here and it will take me back. Just thinking about my kingdom made my eyes fill up with tears. What was happening to it now that I was gone? Did James finally take over my crown? I knew my cousin brother, James, hated me, but to this extent? I never imagined. He could be the only one who could have brought me here. He alone knew the password to my chamber. I shared it with him the last summer when I thought he had changed, but alas! I was wrong. Solely thinking about it made me feel sick, but no! I must focus on my goal. On my goal to reach home. I, Luna Avery, will reach my kingdom at any cost! Since a part of the sacred prophecy has come true, I guess the time has come to struggle…to struggle for power.
Maidservant: Congratulations king, you got a baby daughter.
King: Thank you! Can I have a look at this bundle of joy of mine?
Maidservant: Yes sure! *Holds up a tightly packed, fair skinned baby girl quietly gurgling with her little round mouth, big blue eyes, and heart-wrenching smile.
Other Royal Members: We feel so sad for you king, 3 kids…all daughters, who will you pass on the crown to?
King: This one…Luna Avery…is the chosen one, she will be the successor to my crown.
Other Royal Members: But bu-
King: Silence! I now proclaim Luna Avery the next queen of Centopia!
So that’s me, Luna Avery, the (only) queen of Centopia stuck here in the middle of this desolate place. I know I have to get back to my people, but how? Considering, wandering as the best option, I march forward with literally no hope in mind. After what seems like hours, I finally end up sobbing uncontrollably in front of a flowing stream. I cup my hands in order to have a drink out of the water and that’s when I glance at my reflection. It does not look anything like the queen of a such a big kingdom. Unkept matted hair and my baggy eyes as if a proof of the sleepless nights here in this isolated place. This is not the Luna I know. A strong, bright, confident and fresh girl all mixed in one, and that is the definition of Luna Avery. I must hold my self together…I must not lose hope… I must stay strong… I must…by then I had already slumped forward and had snoozed off due to the endless pain and fatigue. Next morning or evening, I couldn’t determine which, when I fluttered my eyelids open, I saw a pair of cute little eyes staring back at me. The adorable pair of big black beady eyes belonged to a fuzzy little rabbit. I sat up and quickly cupped it in my hands. “She’s Snowball. Cute right?” I looked up startled to hear a human voice. A tall slender blonde girl with big brown eyes and a gentle smile stared back at me. She was dressed in a beautiful woolen dress which was probably stitched by her herself. “Hi!who are you? Never seen anyone here,” she remarked. “Hey! I’m Luna…Luna Avery. Who are you?” I replied, relieved to finally see another human on this island.
And that’s it for today! Who is this mysterious girl and where is she from? Well, all those questions will be answered in the next blog. Don’t forget to like comment and follow!
See you next time!
