Asher walked waith Hope and Kale, as they for the millionth time complained about the clothes they had to wear. Hope was wearing a black dress thet touched the floor, and Kale matched her his suit being black and mostly fire proof. His short coat was a contrast to Asher's long, and they looked absolutly stunning. Perfect companions in the eyes of the demons. But tonight, it was Hope's brithday, and Asher had planned her a surprise party, she wasnt too pleased by the dress up, not how her birthday was going. So Asher had personally sent out Xorn to inform the humans that the White Knight's daughter was haveing a ball here in the castle. It wuld assist in the merging process, the humans didnt need to fear the demons anymore than they usually did.
They paused and Asher looked back at his mates. "Hope, I want you to know, we did this not to make you feel alienated, but because you are special." Asher said, she looked like she was going to question him, as Kale slid his hands infront of her eyes. They walked as Ashr threw the doors open, "Surprise!" Voices rang out around them and Kale removed his hands from Hope's eyes.
She gasped and covered her mouth with her hands as she saw all the humans in attendance, demons were scarce, being mainly the royal family and main advisors. Asher spotted his mother and father in the corner where a dais was set up with the thrones set up, Chris sat in the guilded throne looking positively annoyed with sitting. Asher held out his hand, "Her you go Hope, happy brithday." He smiled. He pulled a small box from his coat and held it out. Kale removed one of his own and it was longer, he held it out as well.
Hope looked at them in wonder, btu she took the boxes, opening Ashers he watched her smile, it was a bracelet made of rubies and diamonds. She smiled and he helped her slide it on. She looked at him and kissed his cheek, Asher stepped back touching his cheek as they flamed. He watched her open Kale's and inside was an onyx dagger. "This is a Sephirian dagger." Kale smiled. "I thought you'd want one too."
"Thank you both of you." She smiled. Asher held out his hand.
"Now before eveyone steals you away from us." He watched as Kale took one of her hands and led her out into the center of the ballroom. Music qued up and She was passed to Asher's hands. He glided her across the dance floor as she flushed madly. He grinned at th eexpression on her face, he loved her embarrased. She was dipped byhis arms and he watched her. She was absolutly stunning. He twirled her into Kale's waiting arms and backed off the floor, she watched him go as Kale took over. He smiled and walked over to where his parents were. "Chris." he greeted.
"Prince Asher." Chris looked at him. "This was a good thing you two did for her."
"I could sense she wanted to be with the humans. I cant force my self to let her go into danger, but I can bring the humans here. I want to be a proper mate before I am finished for being the weakest of my trinity." He looked at his parents. "I know I am about to get extremly volatile, so I apologize in advance. I promise your daughter will not suffer for my shrotcomings."
"Asher." Chris started as he stood up. Zeke steadied hism and Chris yanked his arm away. "I can do it damn." He growled. Zeke lifted his hands in surrender as his mother patted his other arm. "You must learn that it doesnt matter what the council sees, if they dont like you they dont like you. Give them something to fear."
"Exactly." Zeke followed. "You may be the weakest of the three, but you can be cruel, and ruthless. Let that make up for the power, what ever happens in the bedroom stays there. In a court gathering you are in charge, if you have to enforce that on Hope and Kale do so. But you dont have to be brutal, just calculating."
"Exactly." Chris smiled. "Dont fake it, develop your brand of ruling."
"I see." Asher blinked in surprise. he bowed at the waist. "I apologize for my hostility towards you Slave Chris."
"Accepted, now go enjoy my daughters party." Chris waved a hands as he sat back down. Asher turned an walked to where kale stood watching the humans gather around Hope.
