Growing up with her family in hiding from humans, Serene only wished to see what one looked like. Running away from home she finds herself trapped in servitude to a King, and falling for the King's son Drakel who is her fated. Will she and Drakel be able to forge their romance? Or will war breakout as the King realizes he's losing his newest play thing?
Artimese took all that she was being told in and mulled it over. “Do you know… why God created the Cleansing?” “Because he hates us. Thinks we are abominations.” “He fell in love.” Artimese corrected shrugging her shoulders at Dalin. “Yes. He fell in love with a human who was burned as a witch for the diseases caused by a Cambion running through town. Even God can falter.” “I don't consider it faltering…” Artimese offered, “It’s…. Very human of him to fall in love. I mean at church we are taught he loves humanity. But to imagine him truly falling in love with a human. It’s otherworldly.” “What about Mary?” “I don’t think he loved Mary. She was used to give humanity a piece of himself, to stop the suffering.” “If it actually happened.” Dalin muttered. Artimese shrugged at that statement, “Even if it didn’t actually happen. Imagine Abigail’s pain when she was burned alive.” Dalin sat silent for a moment before looking at Artimese, “If he loved her why did he do nothing to save her?” Silence filled the room as Artimese thought on this statement trying to decide what indeed was the reason behind his lack of rescuing. “Maybe… because of his love for humanity he could not save her.” Dalin snorted at the explanation. Lust placed a hand on his sons shoulder and looked to Artimese, “That is a very astute observation young lady.” surprise filled his voice. Lust looked between his son and Artimese surprised by each of them.
