Selene could only laugh as her husband swept her up into his arms. He said he missed her, and though she could not remember him, hearing her dark prince say those words made her heart swell. Something within her missed this affection, missed this feeling of right she had with her husband. She was meant to be his wife, his queen, and the mother to his children. When her feet were firmly on the ground again and she was being ushered out of the room, the princess giggled at the absurdity of the prince “Oh honestly, Joffrey…”

Now that they were together in the hallways and were walking to meet their daughter, Selene felt butterflies in her stomach. As she ignored the various servants ogling the now happy royal couple, she thought about how her poor daughter ought to be feeling in all of this. Her mother had looked at her without any sort of memories of their familial bond. Had that ripped her poor little princess apart? It was true as Joffrey had said…their daughter was no longer little. She was a grown young woman and seemed to be able to understand more than Selene had ever given her credit for. Sighing softly, Selene gripped her husband’s hand and murmured softly “Is our daughter to be wed, now that she is of age? Oh, it sounds so terribly awful to send her off like that…but it seems I found happiness myself. Perhaps our Tempest will as well?” Selene’s voice was hopeful, but it was still etched with doubt as she remembered enough about her daughter to know she would not be pleased about being shipped off somewhere to another kingdom.

King Brandons Sitting Room

King Brandon stared at her at first incredulous.Had he heard her right, he thought? She was truly his. She would tell him what was needed it seemed.

Minerva had said..
“Oh, my King, much has happened whilst you have been away from the castle.” She said matter of factly. “Your Granddaughter Tempest, has grown up within days. From a seven year old, to that of a girl of fifteen. The reasons have all the kingdom questioning. “The wife of the Prince, had slept with a Warlock named Desmond, and they sired a Son. On his birth, the Prince sent her and the bastard packing. Back to the Casterly realm. For some reason, this boy also aged rapidly and is a young man, but he is not Brax, like Tempest. The latest is that the Princess has returned, but lost her memory. It’s a bit of a mess, My King.””

The King looked aghast at these tidings and at first was unsure of what to do then a devious smile formed on his lips.
My dear we have some preparations to begin, I seem to have lost my appetite for the moment. I will need you stay close until I can get you your new collar, it shall be here shortly. 

https://i1.wp.com/i391.photobucket.com/albums/oo358/felixdelgato/jeremy_irons_03_zps085357fc.jpg

The king then turned toward one of his personal guards and bid him to call the various members of the court together to the throne room for an audience tommorow as he would address them each in turn together. It had been sometime since he had seen them all and he would like to greet the court.

Before the guard had left the smith arrived again at the door. Bidding him to come in the king was excited at the propsect of seeing his work. So Smith, What have you wrought? Were you able to create what I bid you to?” 

Smith: My lord, it was indeed an arduous task however I was able to make the collar you required. It required the use of a warlock however and he says you owe him a favor. His name is Magnus. He helped willingly and all and wouldnt take any gold for it. No matter how hard I tried to pay it. Just said to tell you his name and that when he needed your help you remember he helped you. 

https://i1.wp.com/i391.photobucket.com/albums/oo358/felixdelgato/download_zpsef33b5f6.jpg

King Brandon: Although he was a bit shocked as he didnt know this Magnus couldnt be angered by this unknown persons help. He accepted the gift of the collar as the Smith prooffered it from a satchel. It gleamed in the light of the candles in bright gold with a bloodstone in the center. A demonic blood magic connecting him to it, that he could palpibly feel. He then Turned towards Minerva and removed the chain on her neck and placed the new collar.
“This will protect you Minerva. I shall know where you are, and should any attempt you harm I shall be able to affect them directly. We are now linked in more ways then one.”

Brandon then turned back to the Smith, “You are now on retainer. I would like you to work on special projects. Should you have ideas or new projects you would like to do so you may. If I have any I want done I will summon you. That is all for now. You are dismissed.” he handed him another large purse as he walked out of the door.

Brandon saw many schemes afoot but his mistress was now protected and he could begin to set things right he thought as he smiled at her.

As happy as Joffrey was to have his wife at his side, she still didn’t remember exactly who she was yet, so that marred his perfect little world for now. But…they had bigger problems. The King had returned, and one of the first things he decreed was that Tempest should be wed to form an alliance with a neighboring Kingdom.

“Is our daughter to be wed, now that she is of age? Oh, it sounds so terribly awful to send her off like that…but it seems I found happiness myself. Perhaps our Tempest will as well?”

“Ah..yes, that may have been the case for us, dear, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing. In fact it was a very rocky road. I think we had a love unique to many. I fear though that Tempest being OUR daughter, will want to marry one of her choosing and for love.”

Finding the party down by the lawn, and practically dragging Selene on his arm, he was slightly puffed when he reached the group. Seeing Tempest first, he had to get everything off his chest.

“Right…Sweetheart. I know you know me as dear old Dad…and I have always tried to do the right thing by our family. Even though some of it…I was not so good at. Well…I just shagged your Mother to try and get her to remember me with a bit of what I like to call. “Sexual healing”. He used his fingers to emphasis this. Sadly, she still isn’t with the programme, but I gave her a good time.” He then smiled at Selene in his own quirky way, then remembered the reason he was in such a rush.

“Yes…okay. Daddy’s back. I managed to keep him busy with a couple of whores to buy us some time. BUT…soon as he has finished…he is probably going to summon the Royal court. AND this is the part I fear. He…err….wants to marry you off, Tempest. Now…I know you are probably going to be a tad miffed…and I can’t say I blame you. Been in your shoes. But I got lucky and it was your Mum. SO…ideas anyone? I mean…I really think now is a good time for a royal suggestion box.”

Tempest, having worked out her anger and frustrations with the broken statues, returned to the garden in time to see her father and mother returning. She looked at the two of them holding hands and smiling at one another and wondered if her mother finally remembered who she was to them.

Alas it was not to be.

And she really wanted to erase the images that were placed in her head when she heard what they’d been up to for the last couple of hours.

No child ever wanted to picture their parents having sex…no matter how old they were.

“Yes…okay. Daddy’s back. I managed to keep him busy with a couple of whores to buy us some time. BUT…soon as he has finished…he is probably going to summon the Royal court.

But I got lucky and it was your Mum. SO…ideas anyone? I mean…I really think now is a good time for a royal suggestion box.”

Tempest stared at her father as if he’d lost his mind.

“No. Absolutely not.” she scowled. “It’s all well and good for you and Mother finding one another and falling in love. I refuse to cater to a man who hasn’t even been in our lives these past number of years. He can go rot in hell for all I care. And I make this my solemn vow, here before you all. If he even tries to marry me off, I will run away and you will never hear from me again.”

Tempest whirled on her heel and stomped away, going to her chambers and slamming the door.

King Brandons Sitting Room

Minerva remained stationary, as the golden chain the King had placed around her neck, was taken off by his own hand. The new collar that had been fashioned and created with the aid of a Warlock, was brought out into the light, the bloodstone the prized jewel in the piece. Minerva lifted her head slightly, so her neck was fully accessible to the King.

She was actually proud to be given such a piece, as the King himself said that it would serve to protect her from those that sought to bring her down. Fastened securely in place, she lowered her head again.

“This will protect you Minerva. I shall know where you are, and should any attempt you harm I shall be able to affect them directly. We are now linked in more ways then one.” 

“Forever more your servant, M’lord.” Minerva said softly, knowing full well, that this collar, would never come off.

With the information she supplied on the goings on in the palace while he was absent, the King was well armed to bring down his hammer of rough Justice against his own family. The bloodstone glowed as she gasped, feeling the King’s power reaching out to touch her. Even without physical contact, he could do things to her, and he could revel in this knowledge. By his side, beneath him, or even in her own chambers, she would never be alone or free from his will.

Castle Gardens

As Joffrey practically dragged her to the gardens, she listened to his words carefully and nodded as though she understood. She really didn’t without any memories, but she hoped it would all make sense to her soon. Keeping her hand firmly on her husband’s arm, the princess was soon dragged to the party on the front lawn and smiled joyfully to see Tempest. Poor Lucan was trying very hard to force a smile when he saw his mother, but it was clear she had no idea who he was still. Magda had also thankfully returned shortly after the royal couple to stand beside Lucan. Grasping his hand, she squeezed it reassuringly and turned to listen to Joffrey speak.

Hearing the prince spit it all out like that, Selene gasped in surprise “Your grace! Is it really necessary to speak so boldly? There must be a gentler way to put this…”Turning to Tempest, the princess smiled weakly “I am very sorry, darling, but it is not uncommon for princesses to be married off for the sake of the kingdom. Don’t you want to make your father happy?”
https://i1.wp.com/media.tumblr.com/15fd243694da9ffcb4bea770559c5733/tumblr_inline_mk4bx9FVra1qz4rgp.gif
But Tempest quickly made it clear she did not care for Brandon’s orders and soon was stomping away. Sighing softly, Selene turned to look at Joffrey “We have upset her…is she always like that?” Turning towards her daughter that was quickly receding from view, she did not judge her with anger like she so often used to. Instead, she said softly “Give her some time to cool off, my love. I will speak to her shortly when she has had time to process this all. That was…a lot of information and responsibility you threw at her. She needs time to process.” Stepping closer to her husband, she reached up to grasp his face as she spoke gently still “Is there nothing we can do for her?”

He can go rot in hell for all I care. And I make this my solemn vow, here before you all. If he even tries to marry me off, I will run away and you will never hear from me again.” 

The boldness of their daughter in her refusal to carry out the King’s decree, the way she spun and marched off, leaving her parents standing their stunned and blinking was enough to have the other guests sit up and take note.

“I swear, she gets her temper from you, Dear.” Joffrey said, looking at his daughter who had left them all to dwell on her words of defiance.

“Is there nothing we can do for her?” Selene suggested, trying to see if her husband knew of a way out of this terrible situation.

Joffrey truly didn’t have the answer to that question. That all relied on the King, and what he said was law.

“We should head up to the throne room, and see how my Father faired after the gifts I sent him. Maybe he will have a change of heart?”

One could only hope.

Throne Room

King Brandon was seated on the Throne as he waited for the others to arrive. He had many questions he wanted to ask and wanted to address them all together, rather than seperately. He was tired of the deception he would know the matters of court and address them. He had already thought a bit on many issues. He would fix the House of Brax and make it once again respected! He hadnt fought so hard in the field to come home and see it all come for naught. He felt more powerful than he had felt even in his youth Minerva had awoken the demon within him, making him more alive than he had felt since his youth. So for that he did have some compassion for his son, though he did not know it yet.

Minerva was at his side with her collar brightly displayed.
His thoughts on these matters though he would soon reveal.
The guards were gathered in a row as they began to each enter…

Throne Room

Minerva was the glittering jewel by the King’s side. She was not a Queen, not a Countess, not even a duchess, but instead she was favored by the King, and wore the spectacular collar, that glinted and showed off the blood stone around her neck. Her body was elegantly decked out in a satin dress, that was so silky sheer, that when the King gazed upon her side on, he could see the feminine curves, the prick of her ripe nipples, all the way down to her womanhood, which she had been tended to by the maidens. Minerva had been bathed in oils and she smelt divine, her hair bound up fashionably, and her makeup so natural, that it showed off her beauty in a way that the King would find himself besotted. She was his property, and far better than a wife or Queen. She not only gave him her energy and powers whilst making love, but he could feel empowered just by her aura.

https://i2.wp.com/i439.photobucket.com/albums/qq118/ImLikeTotallyAwesome/KirstenDunst.gif

Minerva stayed at his feet, as though on display, that he could take her as he wished, stroke her hair idly as he listened to those of the court give their reports on the Kingdom’s state. Minerva stayed silent as the guards brought in the royal family. This was going to be interesting. The witches bare shoulder just graced the King’s leg, and she let out a soft purr of appreciation, her eyes locked on the arrival of Joffrey, Prince of Brax.

***************

When Joffrey arrived, he had to admit he was shocked to see that the woman, the whore that he had sent to bed his father, was now collared in something that looked incredibly valuable, and was at his Father’s feet. Where was his Mother? What if the Queen saw this open display of the King having taken such a lover? One night he understood, but…hmmm. The Prince bowed before his father, and then presented Selene, who should have been coming in after him.

https://i0.wp.com/collider.com/wp-content/uploads/Arthur_movie_image_Russell_Brand-slice.jpg

“Father….you look great. I take it the…err..young lady made you happy?” Joffrey inquired, looking slightly perplexed. Minerva simply sat still by the King and let him tell his son, just how good she was.

King Brandon watched eagerly as he saw the first of them arrive.
Minerva was exquisite and placed herself at his feet with such grace. As she purred he felt a satisfaction spread within him.
He was ready for anything he thought.

His son Joffrey was next to arrive. As he entered he presented Selene.
Seeing the way he responded so courteously was no surprise he did no court well it was one of the things he taught the boy.

Joffrey had said..
“Father….you look great. I take it the…err..young lady made you happy?”

” More than happy actually. She is my mistress you did well in giving her to me my son. We have much to talk about. But first I would have Tempest brought in here so we can discuss matters. There are some things I’m afraid I have not been told, and I would have each member of this household together and give them all a chance to tell me what they will first. Then we will take some actions to restore Brax’s Honor. ” 

Brandon than looked towards one of the guards and summoned him over with a wave…

” Please go and Fetch the Lady Tempest for me and have her come to the Throne Room directly. Do not allow any deviation. Go. ” 

With that he looked at them all in turn..
“It’s time to be a happy family again. ”

Tempest’s Chambers

Nanny had been trying, unsuccessfully, to retrieve Tempest from her quarters. Tempest had barred the door from even Nanny’s pursuits.

A guard came up behind Nanny.

“The King requests the presence of his granddaughter in the throne room, immediately!” he announced loudly. Nanny turned toward the closed door.

“Tempest Anna Maria Brax, come out of there right this minute! You are not quite old enough for me to not take you over my knee, young lady!” Nanny demanded, banging on the door. There was a moment of silence. The deadbolt clicked and the door slowly opened. Tempest stood there, a glare on her face.

“Fine. I’ll go see what His High and Mightiness would have of me. But I meant what I said. One whiff of a marriage betrothal and I’m leaving.” she snapped, stepping around both the guard and Nanny and heading down to the throne room.


Throne Room

“Her Royal Highness, Princess Tempest of Brax!” the page announced her presence as she casually strolled into the throne room. Not even sparing her parents a glance, she stopped at the bottom most stair before the thrones, glaring hatefully at Minerva before she gave a mocking curtsie to the man who would be King.

“You sent for me, Your Majesty.” she stated, voice tight with anger.

Selene sighed softly and turned to look at her husband as though she were suddenly exhausted “Well, can you blame her, love? She clearly doesn’t want to get married and I highly doubt she is a hopeless romantic like me. She seems too dependent.”Turning to look towards the castle, she frowned slightly as she wondered what do do “The poor thing…” But soon the dark prince’s words sunk in and she turned to laugh at him“Hey! I do not have a temper…do I?” Pondering this, she then shrugged and looped her hand through his “Perhaps it is for the better then.”
https://i2.wp.com/media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lzpfscYSqt1r5tdn1.gif
Joffrey suggested that they go to the throne room, and she nodded her head in agreement. They would have to sort this out with the king, and this deeply troubled Selene. She had only just found out she was married to this prince, and she also just recently bedded him like a wild whore. Falling back into her roles was proving to be exceptionally difficult without memories. Lifting her chin up, she decided she had to do this. Her daughter needed her, and that was more important to her than her own problems. Glancing at Joffrey, she nodded with determination “Lead the way, my love.”

Throne Room

King Brandon watched as his Granddaughter the Lady Tempest entered the room.
By her demeanor, he could tell she was none to pleased to be brought before him.
However he was tired of these antics.

“You sent for me, Your Majesty.” she said through a mask of seething rage.

Though she held it all in well, he could read her mind when she projected so loudly.
He thought to himself well she is called Tempest after all..

Both Joffrey and Selene were watching the exchange and he nodded to them briefly.
“Well my dear, I see you are not to pleased about finding a husband from what I have been told. However I would say that I had thought one with Brax in the name had more honor than that. Perhaps we might be able to give you more of a choice in things if you were amendable, but it would require that you choose soon and at our discretion. We do want you happy, but we have to right the house and find you a suitable husband. It is an important decision, Perhaps a ball? We can invite all of the eligible bachelors from the surrounding kingdoms, then you would be able to pick from your choice of suitors. What do you think of that? ” 

With that he sat back and watched his grandaughter cautiously waiting to see how she might like his compromise.
Also eyeing Joffrey with a wink.

Tempest stared at her grandfather as he spoke his proposal. She didn’t even look at her parents to see their reactions. She knew this had to be some kind of test and did not want their reactions to influence their decisions.

Forced into marriage or pick some stranger from a group of strangers and be forced into marriage anyway. No thoughts about being in love, falling in love or anything of the like.

She hated everything about it.

She kept control of her temper, and her fire by the barest of margins. It wouldn’t do to turn her father’s father into a smouldering lump of goo.

“Fine. Have your stupid ball. But…” she continued before he could speak, “…if I like none of the choices, you will leave me be about this marriage thing. I want to fall in love and have that love returned. Not forced on me like it was some kind of chore. Agreed?” It seemed she was not going to budge on this one. If there was ever a chance of Tempest not doing a runner, Brandon would be wise to accept her terms.

Brandon, was not to be trifled with however. She was quite right on one thing, this had been a test. To see if she would do as bid and to see if he could trust that she would follow instruction. As it seemed she could not trusted,he ordered the guards to quickly seize her. He then pushed out the aura of fear that had been within him. A demonic presence that normally he never shared with his family, but he kept strictly for battle was moved without his body like a seperate entity clouding the room.

The Throne Room

One thing Joffrey knew about his father was when he considered himself to be generous and then had it kicked back in his face publicly….well, that is not a good thing at all. The entire court held its breath, and their faces panned from Tempest back to the King, as Joffrey brought his hand up over his head, like the very ceiling was about to come crashing down. Oh…lord. Tempest had spoken to the King with defiance, and though he couldn’t really blame her at all, he knew no good would come from it. Interjecting now, was simply a very bad idea. It took one look at the King to see…that this was going to be bad.

An aura of fear projected from the King’s demonic form was spreading like a sickening cloud across the very people that stood in the Throne room. Joffrey squinted, and looked at his daughter with sadness. Having experienced his Father’s wrath before, he could feel his own knees knocking at the oncoming words to be spat from the King’s lips.

” You will do as you are bid. You will not be let out of the dungeons now until the ball.” 

Yes…this was bad. Joffrey knew Selene would probably have a word or two about this, but he would urge her silence, in the face of making the situation worse than it already was. Instead, he bowed his head, shamed that he didn’t have the balls to stand up and back up his daughter for her defiance. This was going to be one of life’s lessons.

https://i0.wp.com/images4.mtv.com/uri/mgid:uma:content:mtv.com:1616219

Meanwhile up at the throne, Minerva lay at the King’s feet, and watched the spectacle with an amused expression. She wasn’t daft and captured the look of hatred directed towards her by Tempest. Minerva didn’t care, for she had the King’s favor, and was his Mistress. So, she kept still by the King till he wished her attention.

Everyone was looking between Tempest and King Brandon like spectators in a Wimbledon match, everyone holding their breath to see how this would turn out.

It would turn out quite bad…for Tempest.

The King seemed to grow in size and a very powerful aura collided with her own, meant to inspire fear. She stepped back a few paces but she did not cower, for her will was as strong as the storm for which she was named.

“You will do as you are bid. You will not be let out of the dungeons now until the ball.”

What? she gaped as two guards took her in their arms, giving her apologetic looks as they did so.

“Father? Mother?” she called to her parents, hoping they would step to her defense. But her father simply placed a hand on her mother’s arm to keep her from speaking and looked away from her. Tempest felt her heart shatter into a thousand pieces and resisted the urge to cry. The one man whom she thought she could trust above all others…had forsaken her. She glanced around at the others of the court, not even spotting a glimpse of her own brother. She hardened her heart and glared at each member of her so-called “family”.

“So much for that vaunted family loyalty.” she spat. She jerked herself from the guard’s embrace and with her head held high, marched from the room, the guards close at her heels.

“I’m so sorry about this, Your Highness.” one of the guards murmured as he locked her in a cell. She gave him a wan smile.

“It’s not your fault, sir. You are doing your duty for your King. I place no blame on your shoulders.” she reassured him, touching his hand through the bars of her cell. He took her hand within his own and placed a gentlemanly kiss upon her fingers before leaving her to her thoughts. She glanced around her new accommodations with a sad sigh before sitting down on the dingy cot. Her head drooped, chin pressed against her chest and the tears came. She had been abandoned by her own family, people she loved and would defend with her very life…and she was now left to flounder on her own. “I hate them.” she whispered into the silence. She did not notice the bright light that appeared outside her cell in the main chambers of the dungeon.

“Why do you cry, My Childe?” came a voice she never expected to hear. Her head shot up and she squinted as the light grew brighter. There was a pop of sound and Philippe appeared to her in all his magnificence.

“Philippe! Oh I am so glad to see you.” she whispered, gripping the bars of her cell. “My family has forsaken me. My father’s King has bid me to marry under force, which I can not, shall not do. So I am to be locked up here until I am to meet a suitor at a ball the King is having.”

“Oh my darling, Tempest Storm. You are good of heart and deserve to have someone to love you for you, not to secure a place at someone’s side for the sake of an alliance. A pretty bit of eye candy, you shall not be.” Despite his size, Philippe moved about easily. Must have something to do with his own special magic. “Come. I shall take you someplace safe from the King’s wrath and machinations.” He reached out a single talon and touched the bars of her cell where they shimmered and faded from existence. He lowered his head to her so that she would have an easier time of climbing onto his back. Once she was settled comfortably, he replaced the bars of the cell. “Is there anyone you wish to say goodbye to? I fear you shall not be returning here for some time.”

“I would have liked to say goodbye to Nanny…but she would be killed for having seen me and not raising the alarm of my escape.” Tempest sighed.

“I am sorry for that.” Philippe felt sorrow for his charge. “Then let us be off. We have quite the distance to travel.”

A bright light surrounded them both, growing as large as the room they were in before shrinking to a pinpoint and vanishing completely. No trace remained that Philippe had even been there, not even footprints in the dirt.

Throne Room

Selene had followed her husband into the throne room silently, her eyes flicking from each member of court self-consciously. She was sure they knew who she was, and no doubt knew more about the princess than she did at the moment. Lifting her face to look at the king, she had dropped into a graceful curtsy out of respect. Folding her hands in front of her, Selene then stood silently to see what was in store for her daughter. She turned her head slightly to offer a small smile to Tempest, but she knew her daughter was independent enough to handle herself.

Unfortunately, it seemed the king was not in the best of spirits as he spoke of a ball. Tempest soon dug herself a hole by unleashing her attitude and anger, and Selene could only watch in horror as the king decreed her daughter was to go to the dungeons. Taking a step forward, she opened her mouth to object but could sense her husband beside her. Whipping around to face him, her eyes narrowed as she watched in disgust at how he did not object. Her mouth set into a line as she then turned to watch her baby being led to the dungeons. Her eyes filled with sadness as Tempest shot her a look that could kill. Reaching up to touch her heart, she bowed her head in shame as there was nothing she could do. When her child was gone, she picked up her skirts and began to leave the throne room without another word.

As she was leaving, her son Lucan was heading towards the throne room to see what was going on. Seeing Selene looking distressed, he frowned and rushed up to her. “Princess, what is it?” He dared not speak to her as his mother for fear of further shocking her. Reaching out to grasp her hand, he offered a small smile “Is everything all right?”

Selene just looked at him wonder, a strange feeling stirring within her. She knew him…but how? Sighing softly, she offered a weak smile “No, everything is not. But there is nothing I can do, and it seems my husband will do nothing about it. Come, let us take a stroll around the castle. My head hurts me terribly.”

Lucan nodded slightly and offered his arm to her. Once the princess took it, the pair began to walk down the corridor as he chatted on and on about the kingdom’s scenery.

Throne Room

Brandon visibly calmed a bit having seen the two women leave. He already was aware that Selene could not or would not tell him anything. He had hoped that Tempest would have had more sense than to try and argue publicly with him. It would have been one thing to speak to him privately regarding choices but to publicly challenge his authority was something he would not brook. As King he could not allow it, or he would never be seen wioth the strength he possessed. Nor would the honor of Brax truly be restored. Lookingto Minerva he smiled quietly, she felt the understanding through the bond within her collar. It was almost a symbiotic relationship. Stroking her hair lightly he smiled again.

He then turned towards Joffrey.
“Well we have more to speak of Joffrey, what would you tell me of things as they stand? I want to know what else has transpired now, be honest. I really did try with your daughter as you can see. She simply is not going to listen. We all married at our ages for duty, love was secondary and grew in time. Sometimes one is lucky and finds both but when the time comes its always inevitable that you must marry for honor. It pains me to put any member of the house in a cell, but as she cannot be trusted that is where she will be until we can work something out. Perhaps I can have something arranged.”

Throne Room

With both his daughter Tempest being escorted from the room with guards, and then his wife Selene also leaving due to the requests of the King, Joffrey was left to face his father on his own. A sense of feeling of inadequacy hit him hard, and this showed as his brow furrowed, and he was left without knowing what to say. Did Tempest now think her father was simply not strong enough to stand up to his Father, even though the King had offered to put on a ball so that she may chose one of many suitors. Hell, that was a better deal than what he had received when he was told to marry Selene. Course, things turned out differently, but he loved his wife. Sighing, the Prince faced his father.

His father spoke of how he had made an effort, and of course, Joffrey could see this. The fact remained that Brandon was the King, and his word was law. Even Joffrey would dare not defy a royal decree.

“Tempest is one of her own mind, Father. Willful and headstrong. Much like you, I dare say.” Joffrey spoke the truth in this matter. He saw much of Tempest’s drive and temper to match that of his Father. The King offered that he could arrange something, perhaps.

“I will go along with what you decide of course, Father.”

At that, Joffrey bowed, and excused himself from the Throne room, lost in his thoughts.

Minerva absolutely loved the performances put on by all of the Brax household. She actually had to bite her tongue to stifle her laughter when Tempest stormed out with the guards in tow. Down to the cell block she goes. The Witch was amused even more so by the way that Selene seemed totally clueless by what was going on, and all lost faith in Joffrey too boot. What a wonderful family gathering this had been.

Feeling the bond with the King via the collar, she gazed up at him adoringly. His gentle stroking of her hair, had her purr softly, and nuzzle his leg with her shoulder, letting him know she was of course feeling his emotions. Sympathetic to him naturally. She dared not speak, until addressed, for to do so before the court might look to undermine him. Instead, she stayed close.
