Royal Secrets RPG-

This RPG is partly based on an Antarian myth I added to my fic, FOR THEN, FOR NOW, FOREVER. The basic idea was to explain the undying connection between Max and Liz despite the consequences and the comment made by Tess dupe Ava about Zan always looking for 'someone else.'

The idea is that all the planets in our solar system were part of a united kingdom known as Golden Planets. They all had their own individual kingdoms and much of their ruling decisions were based on alliances with each other. Earth and Antar were at odds and as a last measure, the King of Earth and the King of Antar decided an arranged marriage between their young children, Zan and Eliza (Max and Liz), was their last hope. Vilandra and Rath (Isabel and Michael) were also engaged to keep the three strongest planets together, Earth, Antar, and Creselle (Rath's planet). All would have been well, except the Queen of Calderon vowed to get revenge because her daughter was left out of the royal power loop. And so, Ava was raised to go after the throne at all costs.

The group grows up together and while in their early teens, the King of Antar dies leaving Zan to be a teenage ruler. Unprepared and emotionally scarred he begins to rebel, pushing Eliza away in the meantime. Feeling worried for his daughter, the King of Earth demands that Eliza go to school on Earth and stay away from the Antarian royal family. Losing his father and his best friend/future wife, Zan loses heart and becomes ruthless and unfeeling, driving his sister Vilandra to seek the comfort of love and home elsewhere. She finds it at a party, thrown by Zan himself, in Kivar. Kivar, who is the head of a strong renegade group against Antar, is out for the throne and begins a secret affair with Vilandra to gain it. He also befriends Ava and takes her in as a protege, using her blinding desire for Zan and kingdom against her. (She can be portrayed two ways, if interested ASK!) Ava manages to catch Zan's attention, if only for a short while when Zan is informed of Eliza's arrival. Their planets were on the brink of a war and she was there to speak peace. In a moment of panic, he demands Ava marry him to show to Eliza that he doesn't need her. Amongst this emotional mess, he finds out about Vilandra's affair and this sends him over the edge. The rest is history as we know it. Somehow Kivar gets in, kills the family, blah blah. However, Serena, Eliza's second in command, who follows her to Antar is the one who along side Larek comes up with the plan of sending them to Earth where our beloved Max and Liz meet and cannot explain their undeniable attraction to one another. So our story begins long ago....

(It might be a good idea to check out my story for the gist of it, if this was too confusing, which I'm sure it could have been! :-) Sorry about that if it was. Either way, the story is quite long, so to shorten it, reading the FLASH sections and the DREAM sections and some short chapters will give a good idea of the feel I'm looking for. Hope you guys are interested!!!) Now as a quick question... I want to know where YOU guys think this RPG should start. Right after the bonding ceremony of Zan and Eliza... and span their growth, seperation, etc. OR right when things get heated, when Zan marries Ava, finds out about Vilandra and tries to avoid it, when she sneaks behind his back, when Eliza arrives and turns his world around!!! Either sounds like tons of fun!! Let me know!

CHARACTERS-
Eliza - ME!!!
Zan- Shama
Vilandra- Elizabeth Evans
Rath-Roswell428
Ava- I_Love_Nick
Kivar- (scifidreamer) temp (possible permanent)
Larek- TobascoChick
Serena- scifidreamer

ADDITIONAL CHARACTERS: (if needed)
King of Earth (Eliza's father, needs name)-
Queen of Earth (..., needs name) - Liz_Parker
King of Antar (Zan and Vilandra's father, name- REMEMBER he eventually dies!)-
Queen of Antar (..., name) - Liz_Parker
Queen of Calderon (Ava's mother) -

Woohoo! Finally, getting people interested! So glad.

Ok, scifidreamer you've got Serena! It's a great role, especially because there's a sort of strange relationship between Larek and Serena considering they save the royal family! I'll keep u in mind for Kivar too... if no one signs up for him, you can have it!

Liz_Parker - You can be both Queen of Antar and Queen of Earth! :-) Would you like to come up with names and small profiles for them? I'd appreciate it! Thanks for joining!

I_Love_Nick- You've got AVA!!! Another great part. She's a real character... a mess emotionally and overall it is your decision why she does what she does. The true question is... is she really evil? Or is she simply misled by her emotions? You'll be great!!

Roswell428- you can be Rath! Thanks so much for joining and I hope you guys will enjoy this!

Awwww....everyone I really wanted is gone....well....can I play Larek then?
posted on 9-Dec-2002 7:47:48 PM by Liz_Parker
Hmmm....what's some good names?

Queen of Antar- Akelsa
Queen of Earth- Leihana



Akelsa is a kinda hearted woman. She does the best she can to keep things running smoothly and keep her family on track. She hopes for the best, even if others are doubting her.


Leihana is in charge of things. She makes sure everything is going ok and makes sure everyone keeps in line. In the the public eye she may seem as a perfectionist, but in the private, she like everyone else.


Does that sound ok?

SARAH!!! :-) HELLO! Sorry to hear about your computer... anyway. YOU can DEFINITELY have Larek. And the nice thing is, you get a kind of freedom working with him. You can really develop on his personality and his relationships with Zan, Eliza, Vilandra, Rath and especially Serena. He's a great character you know! Although I keep saying that about everyone... but it's true! :-) Thanks for joining!

Liz_Parker - I love the names you chose... they're beautiful. And your descriptions were great... especially Queen of the Earth, Eliza's mother. WE know about Liz's bout with rationalism and being in control... perfectionism in her mother makes me laugh! :-) It's so possible!

Great job guys!!!

rock on, I'd be more than willing to play Khivar. I getta corrupt Ava.

you know I was thinking I_LOVE_NICK, do you know who Mara Jade is, from the Star Wars universe? well you can kinda play Ava like MJ from the first Zahn trilogy. cuz later it's explained that the reason Mara isn't evil even though she did all these morally and ethically wrong things while using the Force, her motives were completely unselfish. I can explain it better I swear, I'm just tired right now. and that's only a suggestion for if you do decide (is that spelled right? cuz it looks wrong.) to redeem her.

rock on.

WELL!!! It's WED!!! So let's try and get this started!!! No one really told me where they wanted to start.... I'm gonna post a part that takes place in their present. Meaning... Eliza is on Earth... Zan and Ava... hitched and Kivar is scheming. That sound ok? IF THERE SHOULD BE A CHANGE... I can always EDIT!!! :-) Let me know what y'all think!

*Eliza*

It stares at her and she can feel the bile rise in her throat.

"Father, I strongly suggest you reconsider. I am the last person who should be sent there... especially with my history there. Talking peace is the job of your army generals, your strong soldiers. Not your princess and ONLY daughter. I just... it is not a good idea." She looks at him pleadingly hoping he'll reconsider. She cannot go through with such a task. The rumors had been circling the palace. The situation on Antar was worsening by the minute. And an emotional meltdown is not something she could easily handle. She looks over at her mother, the picture of beauty and poise and power. She's always had a say in everything.

"Mother, please help Father to understand the severity of the circumstances his decision may have!" She looks into her eyes and regrets it instantly. Her mother clearly knows why she doesn't want to go. It has nothing to do with the rebel violence on Antar. Nothing to do with the rumored affair of their beloved princess. Nothing to do with fear for her physical body. She was afraid for her heart. And it was all because of one man. Zan, who happened to be the ruthless king of Antar and her old fiancee.

OOC: HOPE THAT WAS OK!? I think it's a good point to start... you guys let me know if you have different ideas.

Khivar
*********

He stalks across the room. Outside the huge windows the night sky is shown, and it blazes with a thousand lights, stars outshined. Air transport vehicles whiz by, and he plots on the 13th floor. She's beautiful, a rare flower, just wanting to be appreciated and cared for. Eager to hear pretty words and grow with their encouragement

And ready to be plucked. Exotic, she is and he wants only that which poisenous, and her thorns have venom. He needs to see her. Too touch her and pet her. His pretty flower.

Vilandra.

Unseen his image is reflected by the huge window in his private rooms. Tall, with light brown hair, he is lithe and not overly built, it's easy to underestimate him, to not recognize the supple strength hidden. Except when you look into his eyes, and then your soul is frozen by the emptiness. A vast pit of nothing.

He voice calls out, shattering the silence of the room, "Ava!"

Ava

I walk into the room where Khivar is standing looking out the window.

I really don't want to be here. I should be with my new husband. I think with anger.

Zan.

I smile as I think of how we finally got married, the way we should be.

The anger comes back as I wonder why he summoned me here. Although, I would never show him my anger.

He is staring out the window and I don't realize that he know I have entered the room until he yells my name and turns around to face me.

I jump, in spite of myself and look up into his eyes, souless eyes that seem endless.

"Yes, Khivar?"

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

So, Zan and Ava are already married right????

_______________________________________

Khivar
**********

He grins, a cruel baring of teeth. "Come here," he says softly. "How did the ceremony go? Did he say he loves you and sweetly kiss you on your lips?" he asks staring at her pink bow shaped mouth. His back is to the window and he watches with twisted amusement as she makes her way to him.

~*Leihana *~




"I'm sorry dear, but it's for the best", I tell my daughter. She's pleading not to go, but it's the only choice we have. That's all I can say, that it's for the best. But honestly, is it? Sending my one and only daughter away....and the possibility of her being killed?


I look at my husband. He gives me one of those sad smiles. I walk over to Eliza and take her hand in mine.

"Eliza dear, I want you to know that I love you with all of my heart, and that no matter what you do, or where you go, that love will be with you forever", then I embrace her in my arms and kiss her forehead softly.

She acts so much like her father sometimes. She just puts on a fake smile then turns to go, I walk back to my husband and grip onto his hand.

"Are you sure we're doing the right thing?", I'm sounding like a child, but I'm honestly scared of loosing mine.

Great post Liz_Parker! :-)

*Eliza*

She walks to her room, her head held low. She MUST go. It is the obligation she has to her family and to her planet. War was never a positive thing... especially not on a rebelling planet such as Antar. She closed the door behind her and stared at the suitcases already packed. She smiled, knowing Serena had taken part in preparing her and sighed loudly. The last time she had been to Antar she was only 15. And she had been madly in love. She stopped herself before it got any further. Before she could think of his face. Before she could see his intense eyes.

"Perhaps things have changed..." She said it out loud to convince herself, but kicked her emotions when she realized she was not yet done with Zan.
posted on 11-Dec-2002 9:41:30 PM by I_LOVE_NICK
Me too!!!! LOL! (I'm excited)

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

Ava

He mocks me and I want to spit at him, but I don't.

He turns back to the window.

"The ceremony was beautiful. It was everything I ever dreamed of..." I walk up close behind him and stand on the tips of my toes. "I told you he loved me." I whipser in his ear.

OOC: thanks roswellianprincess16. I'm glad you like it. he's a real bastard. I'm glad you noticed.

Khivar
**********

"You did. You did he say he loves you, and now you have him," he turns his face a quarter of an inch and their faces are millimeters apart.

"But you'll always be mine." He eyes gleam with something possesive. Something cruel. He cups her face and kisses her hard, and then quickly lets her face go.

His smile is horribly handsome.

(OOC: I haven't had a chance to read the story yet, but after tonight I'll have a chance to do that. I hope this part is ok)
_____________________________________________
*Vilandra*

I take a stroll through the palace garden alone, enjoying the solitude. It gives me a chance to think about all that's happening and try to sort everything out. It was good to see my brother Zan get married. He and Ava seem so happy together. I hope that she can soften him, tame the ruthlessness that has overtaken him since Eliza left. Yet, I dispair that it will happen. I love my brother dearly, and day by day I feel like I lose him just a little bit more. We constantly argue now, and he's become so controlling. It's sad...and I miss the way my brother once was. We were always so close, and we never used to fight this way.

My thoughts turn to Khivar. Right now, he's the only happiness I have in my life. At first, I turned to him for comfort. But now...it's become so much more than that. He's so seductive and exciting and thrilling. Everytime I leave his presence or even just dream about him, I practically have to take a cold shower to cool myself down. Yes, he's definitely heated up my life, and I love him for that. Yes, I think it may be love....at least, I hope it is. I've never felt this way about anyone before.

Now that I've had a chance to clear my head, I go back toward the palace, hoping that by now Khivar will have returned to the party. He slipped out for awhile, and I'm not sure exactly where he went. Time to go find out....

Ava

You'll always be mine.

The words ring through my mind and I shiver, knowing that he is right.

No matter what, he is always right.

Then he grbs my face and kisses me.

I hate him!

I HATE HIM!

But, I hate myself even more because when he kisses me, it's like something inside of me is waking up.

He let's go and I shake my head.

"I'm married now. I love my husband, so don't ever do that again." I threaten and then quickly wish I hadn't.

Khivar
*********

He chuckles, "So the kitten has grown claws?" He steps forward invading her space, "Never threaten me Ave," he says softly, almost distracted, as he runs his left hand through her hair. His hand trails down her neck, where his thumb rubs under her chin, "Never," he squeezes just a little bit.

"And where is your love? Your dear husband?" he whispers in her ears.

*Vilandra*

As I enter the grand ballroom, I scan the crowd looking for Khivar. Smiling distractedly at all the happy, dancing couples, I make my way through the crowd searching. You shouldn't be looking for him, I berate myself for being so love-stricken. Normally, it's no difficulty whatever to play the part of the "ice princess" and feign cool disinterest. But with Khivar, I lose all my cool. Why can't I resist him?
posted on 11-Dec-2002 10:30:26 PM by I_LOVE_NICK
Ava

I want to slap him when he runs his hand down my neck and he rubs my chin.

Then he squeezes and I wince.

He leans over and whispers in my ear.

HIs breath is hot on my ear and my heart is pounding in my chest, which he probably notices since I am pressed up against him.

"He is waiting for me, downstairs at the party." I tell him staring out the window behind him.

I am not afraid of him I tell myself as I tremble.

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

Okay, so I said Zan is at the party because Elizabeth Evans mentioned the party and from where Roswellianprincess16 started off, I assume that tonight is the night of the party...

Correct me if I am wrong.

Oh and this is so cool.

Khivar
*********

"We best not keep him waiting then." Her heart beats against his chest, rapid thumps that delight him.

"Deny me nothing Ava," he kissed below her ear. "He may love you now, but it won't be forever," he kissed farther down her neck. "And it'll never be like I love," his hand travels down her side, a gentle caress. A direct opposite to his harsh words. "No one will ever love you like *I* do," he bites her earlobe. "Don't forget that," he says pulling away, smirking as she stumbles. He grabs her chin, a hard grip, "Tonight."

He walks away.

She should know better than to try and predict his actions. She needed to be taught a real lesson in baiting a person.

Tonight, he thought a handsome smile so beautifully cruel lighting his face.

OOC: Just trying to entertain my young mind. *big*

*Eliza*
She sits back on the bed and finds relief in her silky sheets. She layed back, the familiarity of it a comfort to her heart. She hadn't seen or spoken to any of them in almost five years. Vilandra, whom she had greatly admired must by now be even more beautiful and clever as ever. Rath, always the wild one, was probably enjoying life, doing whatever he wanted to. She wondered for an instant if Rath and Vilandra ever actually married. Her arranged marriage fell apart, that was for sure. And it left a hole in her heart that even her parents feared could never be filled. She sat up and reached for her small dresser drawer. She opened it, and inside pulled out a map of the stars. She smiled as she looked at the one that was circled in red. It was their star. Or that's what he'd said. Didn't matter that they were like 13 or 14 and incredibly enfatuated. She laughed at the pleasant memory and at the thought of Larek. She hadn't seen him in quite some time either! The trusty advice giver had always been one of her favorite people. She pushed the map back on the desk and sighed loudly. This situation did not seem to offer a positive solution.

*Vilandra*

As I search for Khivar, Zan meets my gaze with a stern expression. He's firmly against this relationship....or whatever one would call this....with Khivar. Zan has warned me time and again that Khivar is dangerous. But at this point, I don't care. He's disregarded my wishes one too many times for me to listen to him on this one. Besides, I know Khivar, and I know his heart. He loves me...

I avert my gaze from my brother and continue searching the crowd. There's no sign of Khivar, so I allow myself to be drawn into a dance with one of the many charming, handsome, but oh-so-boring men of nobility who came to attend the wedding ceremony.

Ava

He leaves me in the room wondering what he is talking about.

I sigh and rub my neck where he kissed me.

I should be disgusted, but something inside of me stirs when I am near him.

It's then that I vow never to talk to him again.

I will avoid him at all costs.

I walk out of the room and glance down the hall and see no sign of him, but break out into a run anyway...just in case.

I turn the corner and bump right into Rath.

"Oh, Rath. I'm sorry." I say as he grabs my forearms to steady me.

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

Well, you're full of surprises scifidreamer...Great Khivar part, I am totally loving the two of them...LOL!

I look over at Zan as his sister walks by.There's pure anger in his eyes.Vilandra passes by quickly.I know her relationship with Khivar is only destined to bring trouble.But of course there is no way to stop Vilandra.She has a mind of her own which I used to quite admire.The is until she stopped using her mind.


Lately,I have felt great danger whenever I am near her,which isn't that much anyway.She never wants me around because of course she always thinks I'm trying to get her away from Khivar like Zan is.

"Take a deep breath....we can't do anything now,Sir,"I say to Zan.

He doesn't look at me in the eyes.I glance around the room.Lately,I have been having these feelings.That Antar is in great danger.

Was that ok?

I haven't had a chance to read the story yet, but I should be able to this weekend. If this part I post right now, conflicts, or doesn't fit, tell me and I'll edit, but I wanted to get something up today, so here goes.

~*~ Rath ~*~

Rath had been wandering the corridors, looking for something to entertain him, having left that boring party long ago. He was aware that it was Zan's wedding, but it had been a boring affair, and as he couldn't find his betrothed anywhere, he had decided to seek amusement elsewhere.

So he was wandering the corridors, looking for someone causing trouble. With all of the tension on Antar recently, he had been looking for a good fight and he hoped he would find one tonight, to take his mind of things.

It was then that a soft body ran right into him, and he automatically reached out his arms to catch her. He looked at her as she apologized. "Ava, what are you doing out here? It's your party- shouldn't you be there?," he said with venom dripping from his voice.

~*~ End Rath ~*~

Was that okay? Three quick questions. One, does Rath like Ava? Two, is he in love with Vilandra, or is he only going to marry her for political reasons? Three, is he still Zan's second in command and general of the armies?

I'm going to try to read the story by the end of the week, so hopefully some of those answers will be in there. I hope that was okay.

Ohhhh great job guys!!! Ok... Roswell428- Rath does not like Ava, on the contrary, he was opposed to the wedding to begin with. Remember, he grew up with Eliza and Zan together... he likes it that way. He is REALLy in love with Vilandra, which causes quite a problem. He's heartbroken and angry. Bad mix. He is still Zan's second and old best friend. He feels seperated though lately... Zan has been pushing further away. Ok? :-D Great job!

God, I feel so badly for Rath! Ok, that's it! Vilandra is going to have to come to her senses and make amends with Rath!

Sorry I'm late

Zan

What the hell does Valondra think she's doing? I can't believe she would be so stupid.
I need to get out of here. Where is my wife? I shudder at that. I don't really love her, I love Eliza, she's the one I want. God, what are you thinking. You don't love her anymore, how can you? She left you, deserted you and never even cared to write or tell you why. Well this will show her not to play with my feelings. Just wait till she comes. I'll show her.

*Eliza*
She looked up from her deep thought as she heard the soft knock on the door. If it was her father, she didn't want to speak to him. If it was her mother... she didn't want to speak with her either. Quite frankly, there was no one she really wanted to see. She wanted to be alone. Without another knock she watches her door creak open and the familiar smiling face looks in.

"Serena!" Eliza smiled, her heart happy to see her one true friend. She was wrong. There was ONE person she wanted to see. The ONE person who understood her.

Serena
*********

I know she's in there. I heard of what her parents told her. She might want to be alone.... I knock on the door and when no one answers I slowly open it, peeking my head around the edge.

"Serena!"

I come in, and softly close the door behind me. "Eliza, I just heard," my voice is understanding. This won't be easy for her. I hope to distract her, and if not that at least ease her troubled heart a little. "I brought re-enforcements," I tell her, a secret smile playing across my lips.

Khivar
********

He walks down the grand staircase, into the glittering ballroom. His eyes sweep the scene. His hands still itch with the feel of Ava.

He spots Vilandra dancing a with some insubstantial nobody. His eyes narrow, as he walks towards her. He stands beside them, and is annoyed that she takes a second to long to acknowledge him. "May I cut in?" he asks politely enough, his gaze never leaving Vilandra's beautiful face. Does she know how wide her eyes are? How her breathing has picked up?

He lets warmth flood his eyes. Warnth and admiration shines brightly, along side a possesive gleam.

His thoughts briefly wonder back to his plan for Ava. His dark eyes truly shine for one moment.


posted on 12-Dec-2002 9:38:32 PM by Elizabeth Evans
*Vilandra*

As I'm dancing, my thoughts wander to Khivar and Rath. I've loved Rath all my life, and I always thought I would marry him. But now that I've met Khivar.....I'm not sure what it is, but he's awakened something in me I never realized. It's thrilling and exciting and wonderful. But my heart aches for Rath becaue the last thing I ever wanted to do was hurt him. I know his love is real, and something deep inside me knows that he's the one...

So why am I so attracted to Khivar? Why is it I can love him so freely? It's not fair. It's not fair to Rath. He deserves better than me, someone with so traitorous a heart that falls in love with someone else. I stifle a sigh and am glad that this gentleman can't see the pensive, sad look on my face.

I'm so absorbed in my thoughts it takes a moment for me to realize that Khivar has found me. My smile brightens, and my pulse begins to race. I'm partly pretending to be so cheerful to cover my sadness about Rath, but I can't deny that my body is definitely responding to Khivar's presence.

Khivar asks if he can cut in. With one of my trademark smiles and a slight nod, I accept. I graciously thank the gentleman for the dance and step into Khivar's arms....

And we dance so perfectly together, our movements effortlessly in sync with one another....

OOC: Okay, since Selena said that Rath does NOT like Ava, I am going to make his question to her as being rude...Are you okay with that Roswell428????

If not, let me know and I will edit....

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

Ava

I can hear the hostility in his voice and I am over come with anger.

All my anger with Khivar takes over because I do not let it show when I am with him.

So I let it out on Rath, but also I have anger towards him.

He is so narrow minded. He hates the fact that Zan married me.

Well that is too damn bad for him!

"Listen, Rath. I can do whatever I damn well please! I am Queen now, so don't question me! Just because your upset that Zan finally realized we are meant to be together does not give you the right to treat me like garbage. I am Queen."

I pause and then narrow my eyes at him.

"And don't you EVER forget it!"

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

So, was that okay?

Also, Selena is this party celebrating Zan and Ava's marriage, or were they married earlier?

OOC: excellent posts you guys. and krista, I love Ava. she yelled! she took her anger out on an "innocent" person. she's Uber bitch! rock on.

_______________________________________


Khivar
*********

He takes the fools place, sending him a look. The young man's stomach drops. He holds her in his arms, holds her warm, soft, curvy body close to his. Their bodies fit perfect like two pieces of a puzzle.

He pulls back, just a little so that he can see her face. "What's wrong?" he asks her, concern tinting his voice. "What can I do to make you smile?" he asks with his own smile, before she can answer.



____________________________


OOC: lora, he should have his own name for. Nothing silly, something beaituful and exotic, maybe a flower. it can be a real one or a made up one from antar. anything really, just something that makes her feel special and beautiful and wanted. like she's rare and exotic.

*Vilandra*

How is it that he can read me so well? Sometimes I look into his eyes and I can't tell what he's thinking, and it unnerves me.

I smile my best charming smile and tell him coyly, "I was just missing you, that's all. I'm much better now that you're here." And it was true. Dancing here in his arms, I let myself forget my cares and worries and simply be myself. When I'm with Khivar, I always feel so free....
posted on 12-Dec-2002 10:59:56 PM by Roswell428
Thanks roswellianprincess16, that helps a lot! And I_LOVE_NICK, that was perfect, don't edit! I had phrased the question that way originally, because I wasn't sure how Rath felt about Ava and the question could work either way. You taking the hostility route was perfect. And yeah, Elizabeth Evans, I feel so bad for Rath too! (Maybe that's why he didn't fall in love with her in the next life). If Vilandra's going to make ammends, maybe she could do it in the end, before they all die, so they can be friends (like they are) in the next life. I don't know, just an idea! *big* Anyway....

~*~ Rath ~*~

This was perfect; here was the fight he had been looking for, and judging by Ava's hostility, it was going to be a big one. Perfect.

He smiled lazily at her outburst. "Of course, *my* queen," he sneered, making a lazy bow to her. "I won't forget that you're *my* queen now, that you weaseled your way into Zan's pants after his true love- a real lady- returned to Earth. How could I forget the whore who became queen?"

He paused, seeing the hostility on her face. Maybe he had gone too far- Zan would be upset when he heard about it. But they were childhood friends and Rath knew he really didn't love her, Zan shouldn't be too upset- he would probably only care for propriety's sake, that someone had insulted the queen. Besides, he had already said it, he might as well add the icing to the cake while he had the chance.

"You know he doesn't love you, right? He's only using you, for cheap sex to try to forget her. But it won't work, because he'll always be in love with her- you're just a bad substitute."

There, that should take his mind off his wayward betrothed for a while. It still cut him deeply, that he had found out she was preferring Khivar's company to his own. How could she do that to him? 'But no, don't think about that now,' he told himself. 'Taunt Ava some more and take your mind off it. You can worry about Vilandra later.'

He watched with barely concealed glee at Ava's sputtering and anger. Yes, a good fight was taking his mind off things.



~*~ End Rath ~*~

Was that okay?

That was GREAT!!!!!!

Let round two begin...LOL!!!

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

Ava

"How dare you?" I accuse spitting the words out.

I grab the hem of my white gown and stand up to face him.

"Zan does love me, don't ever doubt it. You don't know what happens behind closed doors...you worthless piece of crap!"

I shout to him and I want to slap him in the face.

"He married me because he loves me! And how can you even call me a whore? May I ask where your precious Vilandra is? Oh wait...you wouldn't know, would you?"

I see the anger flash behind his eyes.

"Oh, did I hit poor little Rath's soft spot?" I mock. "You know it's true. The only whore around here is you 'bethroed'. You do know what that word means doesn't it? It means that she is being forced to marry you. She doesn't love you. It's just like Zan was being forced to marry that little bitch from earth."

I can feel my face heat up as I think of her. Rath opens his mouth to respond but I continue on.

"But, who did Zan marry? That's right. ME!" I say pointing to myself. "No one forced him too. He asked me because he loves me."

I am almost out of breath, but I can't resist my last comment.

"Oh and about him using me for cheap sex...At least I'm getting some!"

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

Was that okay?

Did I offend anyone?

I just want to show how Ava is without Khivar there...

Well, I would think that it would be nice if Ava and Lonnie were somewhat friends...since they really don't have anyone else.

Mainly Ava was just trying to piss Rath off...she didn't intentionally offened Lonnie.

But, I guess it's up to Selena whether they are friends or not...

Also, do Ava and Lonnie know about each other's realtionship with Khivar???

I let the part about Lonnie open, not saying exactly who she is with, but applying that there is someone...

Do I even make sense?...LOL!
posted on 12-Dec-2002 11:50:38 PM by Elizabeth Evans
That works. I think it would be great for them to be friends. They'll need each other to get the whole mess that has become their lives sorted out.

I don't think Vilandra would know about Khivar and Ava. I think if she did, she'd be better able to get over him. And it's too soon for that yet...

OUCH! That was harsh, but great!

~*~ Rath ~*~

Rath just wanted to beat the smug smirk off her face. How dare she mention Vilandra? How dare she even compare herself to her, his goddess? Sure they had their problems, but Vilandra was twice the woman that Ava was.

He controlled his momentary flash of anger. He couldn't let her see how she was getting to him. He put on an easy grin, and leaned down into her face.

"True, I may not know where she is right now, but at least I am secure in one thing- her love for me. No matter how many misguided flings she has, she will always come back to me, and that is more than I can say for you.

"And yes, you may be 'getting some' but the real question is, from who? I know you're not getting your real kicks from Zan- someone else is controlling you. And I intend to find out who it is. And then when Zan finds out (which I'll make sure he does), he'll end your pitiful charade of a marriage, because don't fool yourself little girl, he's always been in love with Eliza and always will be. And your marriage is just a stupid game to him, one to amuse him until she comes back."
posted on 13-Dec-2002 12:21:22 AM by I_LOVE_NICK
Lora, yeah I doubt that Lonnie knows about Ava, but I wonder if Ava knows about Lonnie?????

Roswell428: Great part, I am totally loving this!!!!

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

I listen to words, but one rings through my mind...

Eliza

That stupid little girl from Earth.

"Don't ever mention that little bitch's name infron of me again Rath...Do you understand? You may be Max's second in command, but I am the damn Queen. That means that I give orders and people listen...So you better watch yourself...I won't warn you again."

I tell him and walk past.

But I stop and turn around.

"Where is Lonnie anyways?" I ask smiling and turn and leave.

I walk fast.

He knows something. He knows that there is something else going on.

I can't let him find out about Khivar.

I won't. I think with determination as I continue on with my departure from Rath.

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

Roswell428...feel free to scream after her or run up to her if you have something to say. I just felt that it was something that she would do...Try to leave with the last word...You know what I mean?

Was it okay?
posted on 13-Dec-2002 12:25:58 AM by Elizabeth Evans
Yeah, I think that would work for Ava to know about Lonnie/Khivar but Lonnie doesn't know about Ava/Khivar.

And I loved that Rath post! So glad to see there's still hope for Vilandra and Rath....and that he knows she truly loves him and will always come back to him even despite this infatuation she thinks is love with Khivar.

OOC: I think ava knows about khivar and lonnie. and right now at this moment. khivar isn't the main one controlling ava, it's her mom. she created the ava we see, brought ava up to exact her revenage against zan's family. I think ava's mom and khivar teamed up and khivar's just taking advantage of the situation. in a sick way though, he really does care for her. and he's using vilandra but I don't think he hates her or anything.

Thanks Elizabeth Evans! Yeah, I added that in, because I felt that poor Rathie deserved some kind of break. Your Vilandra parts have been right on target. Keep up the good work.

And I_LOVE_NICK, that part was perfect. I may just run after her.

~*~ Rath ~*~

She asked him where Lonnie was, before turning and trying to walk away from him. Nobody walked away from him.

He ran up behind her and grabbed her, forcing her to stop moving. "Listen here you little bitch. You may be queen on Antar for the moment, but you will never be *my* queen. Do you forget that I am royalty on my own planet? And besides the fact, that even if I weren't I wouldn't accept a little fake like yourself on the throne. As to where Lonnie is, I don't know. She disappeared somewhere, like she has been doing a lot lately. Hey, maybe she's been taking lessons from you, you little whore."

He released her with a contemptous shrug. "And the next time you ever dare to presume to *warn* me, I will make sure that that *pretty* little head of yours is properly adorned!"

Roswell428 That was awesome, I am like so excited, it's so intense...I almost feel bad for poor Ava...Hasn't she been through enough?????????

LOL!!!

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

Ava

In my own fury, I don't even hear him run up behind me.

He grabs me hard and spins me around to face him.

As he talks, my blood boils.

*Not his Queen.*

Ha!

"Please Rath, I have not taught Lonnie anything. Maybe you should look at yourself! Did you ever think that's it's because of you she is never around anymore? Of course not..." My voice rising with each word.

"Your to stupid to see what is right in front of your face! She doesn't love you and here you are walking the halls looking for her. You're pathetic!"

I laugh in his face and his face reddens.

My face faulters for a moment.

"Oh and let me inform you on something..." I say, not backing down, too much of this has been left unsaid for too long. "While you're on Antar, I am you Queen and there is nothing you can do about it. And just wait until Zan hears how you have been treating and how you just assulted me!"

I stop at this threat, waiting to hear what he has to say.

I kept wondering why lora hadn't responded to a question I asked. my god it was like almost two hours ago. man I feel stewpid! :: totally embarassed smile::

Khivar
********

She smiles a radiant smile, and he tightens his grip around her waist. Her smile is disarming, he thinks. Perfect, because you'd never suspect there would be something hidden behind it. An excellent weapon.

She relaxes in his arms, and he whispers in her ear, "Have I told you how beautiful you look tonight?" he asks, his voice thicker than usual.


___________________________________________


OOC: several Q's: why is Khivar here? was he invited by isabel (secretly) to the reception? cause I don't think he's wanted by anyone. is it okay if I have him here mainly to antagonize Ava and draw Vilandra closer to him? and was vilandra the maid of honor? it's up to lora, but I think she should go against convention (if it is convention on antar) and wear something dark, dramatic, maybe sexy and form fitting, sleak, like from the 40s. and.....so what name did you come up with lora? heeheehee, cuz uh, I don't have anything *big* .

I don't know. at first I thought it was ava and zan's wedding day today. and then I realized by calling ava name I put you in an awkward position. maybe it is the reception, and khivar said he would hold it at his place as his wedding gift? does that work? btw, I love your and Roswellian428 interaction. it's great. there is so much anger and betrayal going on. it's like everyone has secrets.

rock on.

Okay....

The party that Lonnie and Khivar start their affair was thrown by Zan and it was before Ava and Zan were married....

So, this could just be another party...Lonnie and Khivar have already started their affair, Zan and Ava were already married....

I don't know!!!!

I don't know what party it is, I remember reading in one of the earlier posts, something about a reception, though. I don't know!

Thanks scifidreamer!

And no, I_LOVE_NICK, Ava can never suffer enough! *evil laugh*

~*~ Rath ~*~

"You will never be my queen," Rath states passionately, almost spitting in her face. "And for another thing. Stop talking about Lonnie- you don't even deserve to say her name. I love her and I always will, which is more than I can say for you. You have never loved anyone but yourself, you overweight hyena! The only thing you love about Zan, is getting the chance to squeal like a pig, when's he's bonking you, using you for his own physical pleasure, not that I think he *can* get much pleasure from you.

"Go ahead and tell Zan. Tell him everything I've said. Maybe then he'll wake up and realize the truth- what a little bitch you are.

"And don't forget *my* warning you presumptious little toad. You won't like me when I'm angry. And stay away from Lonnie!" he said as he stalked off in the opposite direction.

Man, that was good! A good fight was just what he needed to get his blood boiling and his mind racing, taking his mind off other things. 'Maybe Lonnie is back in the ballroom by now,' he thought to himself, his path turning to take him there. They would need to have a little chat, as soon as he could get her alone. And then, after they had sorted everything out, he would content himself with gazing at her resplendant beauty and holding her close.

~*~ End Rath ~*~

By the way, I_LOVE_NICK, like you said earlier, if you need Ava to say anything else, have her come after him. I just figured he'd be done with her at this point. But come after him, if you need to (if you dare)! *evil laugh*

Anyway, you go tell Zan, and we'll take it from there. I too, hope that they have another run in!

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

Ava

My vision blurs as Rath yells at me and I see red.

My rage takes over and I want to kill him right there.

Does he not realize that I could have him killed?

Well, if he keeps it up, then he might find out...

He walks away and I have half a mind to run after him and slam his ugly face into the wall.

But, I stay where I am.

I watch until he is out of sight and then I break down and cry.

I sob and slide down to the floor.

Why is all of this happenening to me?

I should be happy...I have everything that I ever wanted.

But, I'll never be happy as long as Rath hates me and Khivar won't leave me alone and as long as that Eliza bitch is still alive.

I wipe my eyes with the back of my hands and stand up brushing off my gown.

I walk back towards the ballroom, still not deciding if I should tell Zan about my encounter with Rath.

And then I think back to that vile, disgusting thing Rath said to me.

Overweight Hyena!

How dare he? I think glancing down at my body as I walk.

Have I gained weight???

I shake my head and enter the ballroom.

Almost immeditaely I spot Lonnie and Khivar dancing together very closely.

I walk along the side of the room, galncing at them and Khivar meet's my gaze.

I look away, I hate him.

So why can't I help but have that little jealous pang in my stomach?

I keep walking and refuse to look back at them.

I spot Zan with Lareck and I make my over to them.

"Hello." I say with a bright smile.

Lareck smiles polietly and Zan grunts something.

I notice that he is staring at Lonnie and Khivar.

I know that I shouldn't disturb him about this now, but I can't help it.

"Zan," I whisper. "Do I look like an overweight Hyena?"

OOC: Scifidreamer, did I miss a question of yours? Let me know so I can answer it if I haven't already. As far as Lonnie's dress, I love your ideas *happy*. I think Khivar is probably there because it's expected given his place in society even if Zan doesn't realy want him there. Does that make sense? I'm still thinking on the pet name. Ok, I have to go for now, so I'll post more this evening. See ya then!

GUYS IM HERE!! Dont freak out. Ok... first off - party was not specified, but I liked the idea of it being Zan and Ava's wedding party. Especially because they're not together there... they're both wandering (shows how seperate they are). Vilandra knows nothing about Ava and Kivar, Ava knows Kivar is using Vilandra. How's that? Answered questions? oh and Kivar is there because hes rebelling and wants to see Vilandra, regardless of the fact that he knows Zan hates him... but Zan cannot arrest him. No charges. Got me? :-) Good.

*Eliza*

"You brought something for me?" She laughs at her silly smile. Serena always knew how to make her feel better.

"So, I'm assuming you know?" Serena nodded sadly and set next to Eliza on her bed.

"What do you think? Is it a horrible idea? I think the worst part is that I'm scared to feel all that I know I will feel. And it terrifies me." She looks over at her friend and smiles sadly. The things she did for her parents. They owed her BIG.

"When do we leave?"

Thanks Selena!!!!!

Okay, so the party is Zan and Ava's wedding party...

Where is *my* husband????

LOL!

~*Akelsa*~



I walk around the party and mingle with everyone.

My son seems to be without his bride. I frown. That Ava is a slippery sort. One minute she's there and the next she's not.

I just want him to be happy. Since Eliza left he hasn't been the same. But then he met Ava and his spark was back.

Zan is my only son and he will have to take over the throne someday. I hope not real soon. He's a newlywed and I'm not sure Ava is ready to take over the role as queen if something were to happen to me.

Don't get me wrong. I like Ava. But she seems to have many secrets. Not just small ones, but big ones.

But the question is, what secrets? And will it hurt our kingdom?

Ohhhhhh, great post Liz_Parker!!! =) I liked the view from the motherly angle!!! I could definitely understand how she'd be worried... her loving, vivacious son was now heartless... and she knew it was due to a broken heart. ::sigh:: Makes me sad...

Serena
**********

"We leave tonight Eliza," I tell her gently. I move back towards the door. "Now as to your surprise, it's not much, but....."

I open the door and pull in a food cart. It's laden with things to make ice cream sundaes. All her favorite toppings and four flavors of ice cream, including the one Chef Maryn makes only for her. I hope this helps. Sometimes I want to slap Zan, for the way he's hurt her. And I'm a pacifist.

I'm already planning what must be packed for this trip. Something tells me this is going to turn into an extended stay.

OOC: thanks for the info Selena. helps a lot. could you

and krista, with ava you had me laughing, then I became somber and felt like a jerk, than you had me busting up again! it was madness.

Khivar
*********

He's holding Vilandra in his arms, when he sees Ava walk into the ballroom. He pulls Vilandra still closer to him and nuzzles her neck. He looks up and his eyes catch Ava's. Her eyes flare, and he can't tell if it's with hate or jealousy. Both he hopes. He smiles cruelly at her, and she makes a point of looking away.

"I can't wait to get you alone," he says seductively in Vilandra's ear. "Your silky white skin glowing with the light and mystery of the moon," he tells her. His gaze strays to Ava and his hands caress Vilandra's back, and he imagines Vilandra with him tonight, whispering declarations of love.


__________________________________________


thanks for thinking of a name Lora. see ya tonight.

~*~ Rath ~*~

As Rath walked away from the little bitch, he wandered towards the ballroom. He glanced inside, looking for Lonnie, but instead saw Ava talking to Zan. Good, he hoped she told him! Then they'd see just how in love Zan really was with her.

Looking away, his eyes settled on the dance floor. There was Lonnie, dancing with... dancing with him! How could she be dancing with that trash? He was going to have to put a stop to that!

He marched over to where that ... that thing was holding his beloved tightly. He spoke in a sharp tone. "Let her go, Khivar."

Turning to Lonnie, he said, "I'd like to dance with *my* financee."

~*~ End Rath ~*~

Was that okay? I thought that would be an appropriate reaction for Rath, seeing her with Khivar.

By the way, I_LOVE_NICK, I liked how you worked overweight hyena into your Ava post. I'm glad I really got to her!

OOC: Ok, I still haven't thought of a name, but I'll try. I took a couple flower quizzes to help me out, but I kept coming up as a rose. Well....to Antarians, it probably is a beautiful and exotic flower.......

*Vilandra*

Khivar nuzzles my neck and holds me close. It feels like heaven. But then he whispers these incredibly sweet words about wanting to be alone with me tonight, and I try not to stiffen. I don't know if I'm ready for this...

As much as I want to be with Khivar, my heart will always be with Rath, and I don't know if I can betray him like that. Yes, already I've begun this affair with Khivar, but to be with khivar the way he's suggesting...I don't know if I can take that next step. Panicking, I simply give Khivar another of my dazzling smiles and try to think quickly.

Then Rath comes to my rescue. He comes up to us and tells Khivar to let me go. Looking into my eyes, Rath tells me, "I'd like to dance with *my* fiancee. I give Khivar another dazzling smile and whisper huskily, "Thank you for the dance."

I turn to Rath, my betrothed, and my heart just melts. I always feel so safe and secure with him. It's such a refreshing contrast to Khivar, who is so exciting and unnerving. I step closer to Rath, preparing to dance with him, when I notice the murderous look he's giving Khivar. And looking at Khivar, I notice the same murderous rage on his face. God, could my life be any more complicated?

I'm glad you enjoyed the madness, scifidreamer!!!!!

Oh and the hyena thing really got to poor Ava...Roswell428!!!!

LOL!!!

Okay, I haven't heard from Zan, but I'm going to post a little something...

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

I look up to Zan waiting for his reaction when I notice that he is looking for something else...

I follow his gaze and I see Rath interrupting the dance that Khivar and Lonnie are sharing.

My face relects no emotion but deep down I am smiling.

I smile because Khivar will no longer be dancing with Lonnie, even though I don't know why it bothers me.

And I smile as I see the look that Khivar is giving Rath.

The look scares me, but I smile inside because I hate Rath and maybe Khivar can help me with him.

Khivar can help me get rid of my problem with Rath permantely...

Now, if only I hadn't vowed to never go near Khivar again.

I turn my gaze back to husband wondering what he is going to.

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

Edited to say that I posted this part to show that Ava wants to get rid of Rath...which will lead to the death of the Royal Four...Is that okay? Should I change it???

OOC: Great lead in Krista! I liked it! You're on the right track. Quik question... would anyone like to temp for Serena (scifidreamer) just for tonite, so we can get Eliza to Antar? Let me know!!!!don't worry scifidreamer, the part is altogether irreplacable... I just need to get Eliza off Earth ok!? :-D

*Eliza*
She stares at the trays of toppings and ice creams and hugs Serena tightly. This was exactly what she needed. She grabbed several small bowls and served herself in what can only be described as 'unlady like behavior' as her father would probably say. She sat on her bed, making room for Serena and sighed.

"How long will the flight be? Will I see him tonight? I am truly panicking. Can you tell?" She watches her smile and takes that as a yes. She was already itching for the warmer Antarian air. For the comforting light of their moons. For the irresistable and almost seducing air of flowers and royalty. For Zan.

Great setup, Elizabeth Evans!

~*~ Rath ~*~

Finally, Lonnie was coming to her senses! She stepped away from that piece of crap and towards himself. That piece of crap! Just thinking about him, made Rath want to knock him to the ground and beat him to a pulp.

He turned and shot a murderous look at him. Should he? 'I mean, Zan hates him as well,' Rath thought to himself. The idea was tempting, but he decided it might be better not to do that in the middle of party. Maybe if they took it outside?

No, no matter how much that disgusting piece of filth got under his skin, he wouldn't bow to temptation- it would probably just serve to alienate Lonnie from him further. Besides, he truly wanted to dance with his financee; plus, that might just serve to annoy Khivar further. Good.

Turning back to her, he swept her up in his arms, and murmered sweetly in her ear, "Shall we?"

He then proceeded to sweep her around the dance floor, leaving Khivar in their wake.

~*~ End Rath ~*~

I hope that was okay. I just wanted to show that Rath had some self control and that he was thinking about Lonnie. I didn't mean to totally end the Khivar/ Rath fight. If you still want to have the fight, you can just have Khivar come after them, and start something. Besides, I think Rath knows that dancing with Vilandra would infuriate Khivar more effectively than anything he could do! *big*
posted on 14-Dec-2002 4:58:16 PM by Elizabeth Evans
OOC: That was perfect! Rath's self-control was wonderful, and he was so on target about what Lonnie's reaction would be if he were to fight Khivar.
____________________________________________

*Vilandra*

Rath sweeps me up in his arms and mumurs in my ear, "Shall we?" I smile a brilliant smile as I whisper back, "I'd love to." This is the Rath I missed so much after there were murmurings of a threat to plantary peace, perhaps the brewing of a civil war.

Of course Rath couldn't help it, but the cares of this world and his position as Zan's second in command began to weigh heavily on him. And try as he might to stop it from happening, that distanced him from me. I had missed the passion and intensity in Rath's eyes, the pure love I had always felt from him. Now it was back, and it felt so right. I felt that same excitement and thrill that had been missing lately return, and I almost felt....complete. We began to dance together, so easily and naturally. My arms automatically wrapped around him to draw him closer to me, and I rested my cheek against his.

OOC: I was all gettin' ready to edit my khivar post, thinking it was wrong or inappropriate, but I guess I better leave it in now *happy* . who I am to stand on the way of rath and vilandra mending things? oh that's right I am Khivar!!!! my will must be done!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

::pushes khivar by his head outta seat, he falls to floor::

ignore that. I don't know where he keeps coming from ::frustrated shake of head::

___________________________________



Khivar
***********

He lets her pull away from him and infuses his eyes with a look of hidden hurt, until he meets Rath's gaze. He stares at him and let's his anger at being interrupted show. He can see the hate in Raths's eyes, he smirks inside, if looks could kill. Rath wants to hurt him. He goads Rath with a slight grin.

Rath, after a brief flash in his eyes, turns to Vilandra and pulls her close. They dance, and he sees her rest her cheek against his. His eyes narrow.

Enjoy your time with him now Vilandra, you will be mine in the end, he thinks. He catehes her eyes once, and slightly bows to her. Let the Lady's will be done to night, soon I and my love and adoration for her will consume her.

He turns and heads off the dance floor. His eyes scan the room looking for Ava. His kitten with claws.

Viandra his beautiful flower with thorns that kill.

Ava. His race pulses. Let's see how Zan is treating you now Fair One.

OOC: Great Khivar post, scifidreamer! He's so great at never letting people know what his true feelings are. Like, is there a part of him that does love Vilandra and is hurt by her leaving him to dance with Rath? Or is it that he's simply using her? Loved your OOC comments too, LOL! *happy*

Serena
*********

I smile as Eliza rambles. She's nervous. Nervous becuae for the first time in god knows how many years, she'll be seeing Zan again.

"I don't know if you'l see him tonight," I answer honestly. I can't tell her what I overheard. That tonight is the celebration of Zan's hasty marriage to Ava. Ava! I can't help but remember Ava's mother and shudder.

Didn't Larek try to talk sense into Zan? Did who do anything to try and stop this farce of a marriage from taking place? Knowing how all men are, no matter where they come from, or what species they are, and how they are all the same, the answer most likely is, he didn't try hard enough.

"Do you know what you wish to wear for tonight's flight and arrival?" I ask.
posted on 14-Dec-2002 8:07:01 PM by scifidreamer

OOC: ::chuckles:: I was writing and then khivar just popped up. he makes me laugh.

khivar wants everything. and he wants everything to know they/it/whatever belong to him. so he really does care, he takes great care of his possessions (well at this time he does, he obviouly changes in the future), but he's ruthless to the extreme. it's like he's the star in his own movie and everyone is just an extra needed to make his world real. does that make sense? he really wants vilandra to join him. but he wants to keep ava and vilandra seperate. they each mean and represent different things to him.

hope that helps. he's not a good guy inside. not some confused, or misdirected boy who can be saved. he's a real bastard.
posted on 14-Dec-2002 8:15:07 PM by Elizabeth Evans
That makes sense, scifidreamer. He's not going to like it when Vilandra stops playing her part as extra in his "movie." That'll be perfect motivation for him to turn against her later.
posted on 14-Dec-2002 8:28:56 PM by scifidreamer
OOC: but I thought vilandra, unwittingly, helps him get into the palace? she doesn't know he's using her as well does she? doesn't know or mean to betray her family. I thought she only realized he was bad, when it was too lare? I mean, I want her and rath to end everything on good terms so they can have the friendship they do on earth, but doesn't she love khivar to? cause apart of her is wild and dangerous, and he appeals to that part of her. he encourages it in fact. isn't that why he tried to come back for her, when she was marrying jesse?

I don't know, I'm probably wrong. sorry.


posted on 14-Dec-2002 8:41:57 PM by Elizabeth Evans
I think you're exactly right about all of that. I was just thinking that Vilandra has no idea how dangerous Khivar is until it's too late, and she has no idea the game she's playing until then. She is very much torn between Khivar and Rath, but when her love for Rath wins out, she'll have no clue how pissed off and dangerous Khivar is about that....

Khivar would seem to be the type to hide all that from her, and so she trusts him enough to let him into the palace that night when he betrays her and her family.

Make sense? Do you think all of our ideas about this fit?

OOC: ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh ::nods head with sheepish grin:: yes, okay I get you. damn I'm slow tonight.

ooooh, it's kinda like when he kills her, it's for her own good. and then when he realizes she's still alive he wants to reclaim her. make her the person he always wanted her to be. oh my god, that was like an epiphany! you have no idea how excited I got when it dawned on me. LOL. man I'm a muttonhead.

it's like she goes all loyal on his ass, and he gets pissed because he had all these plans for the two of them.

man, khivar is twisted. there's so much going on in his head, so many cliche-ish things, like if he can't have her no one can. but there's other reasons there too. man you and ava, got mixed up with the wrong mofo.

~*Leihana*~



I keep my mind set on other things.

I know perfectly well that Eliza is leaving tonight. Serena is her best friend, I hope she can keep my dear Eliza calm and get her prepared for this hasty trip.


I smile softly. Serena was always the person to keep Eliza in check when her father and I couldn't. And she knew what Eliza loved to eat. Ice cream. And lots of it. I swear if she goes to Antar looking sloppy and embarrasses us all, Serena will be in trouble.

I've let it slide in the past. When my daughter was late to a royal event because she had been up half the night eating ice cream and having "girl talk" as they had put it. I let it slide with just a mere warning. That won't happen next time.

Sometimes I wonder what those girls talk about. Eliza's fantasy's? Serena's newest crush perhaps? I don't know. I just hope that this trip to Antar will be for the best and she won't come back with a broken heart. If Zan breaks her heart, I'm not sure Serena will be able to pick up the peices this time. I know Eliza claims she's over him. But everytime someone mentions Prince Zan, her eyes twinkle and she gets one of those wonderful smiles.


I miss those smiles. She just puts on a front for people. Unfortunantly, she gets that from me. I hate that trait. But, it might do her good someday.

I just keep hoping for the best, and wait for my husband to come back to the throne room. I haven't seen him in hours. I frown. Where could he be?

I'm here! I'm here! Sorry, Elizabeth Evans, I didn't mean to hold you up, it's just that I had to move back home today (dorms closed) and this is the earliest that I could get on.

~*~ Rath ~*~

He smiled slighty as she laid her cheek against his. He missed this, these moments with her like this. This was the Lonnie that he had fallen in love with; this was the Lonnie that he hoped to marry.

As they continued to dance, one of his hands slowly began stroking her back. "I've missed you, Lonnie." The moment he said it, he regretted it. What would she do now? Would this be the end of their moment together?

~*~ End Rath ~*~

Great posts all! I'm glad to know that Lonnie still has feelings for Rath, and that he will eventually win her in the end. And Khivar, you evil bastard, I'm glad you didn't decide to challenge Rath (know you couldn't win huh?) and let him and Lonnie have this time together.

And thanks Elizabeth Evans, I'm glad you like my portrayal of Rath. I immensly enjoy your portrayal of Vilandra- now I know that she wasn't just a heartless bitch, but a good person!
posted on 15-Dec-2002 8:55:09 AM by Elizabeth Evans
I totally understand, Roswell428.

I'm loving the Vilandra/Rath interaction. And I'm so glad you like how I'm portraying Vilandra. In the show, I never wanted the betrayal thing to be true, so I loved it when Michael told her what he remembered after Isabel kicked Khivar's butt all the way back to Antar. It was so great to find out that Khivar betrayed her trust and that she didn't betray the others. So that's my Lonnie *happy*
_______________________________________________

*Vilandra*

I love it when Rath uses my nickname. He softly strokes my back and tells me, "I've missed you, Lonnie," voicing the same thoughts I'd had. After everything, we were still so connected. Somehow, I sense his hesitation about my reaction to what he said.

Doesn't he know that this is what I've been waiting for, for him to stop holding back from me the way he has lately?

I hold him closer and whisper, "I missed you too, Rath. I've missed you so much...." When was the last time we danced like this? When was the last time we really talked, and shared how we felt? Rath has been going through so much lately, and I know he was trying to protect me by holding it all in and not sharing it with me. But I want to be there for him. It hurt that he wouldn't let me do that. Maybe now, he will....

*Eliza*
She smiles at Serena and puts down her empty plate of ice cream. Her third. Guilty pleasures were hard to deny. She stood up and headed towards her closet.

"I've got my gown picked out. I just need a few minutes to change, then we can depart." She heads into the washroom and minutes later comes out, her hair up in a thick bun, pieces of hair falling to frame her face. She looked down at her dark purple gown, simple yet elegant. Extremely royal. Serena smiled and handed her the crown. She was no longer Eliza. Now, she was Princess of Earth and key to the peace of the royal system. Someone had to help her.

"Ready?" Eliza pushes the cart into the hallway and calls her servant to pick up her bags. Finally, she was leaving.

OOC: HEY! Sorry I've been out for a while!! Scifidreamer... we're on our way!!!! Soo... if you like, you can start from our arrival at Antar!!! :-P Yay!!! Great posts guys!!! I love the Vilandra/Rath interaction!

I love the Vilandra/ Rath interaction as well.

~*~ Rath ~*~

Lonnie whispered back to him, "I missed you too, Rath. I've missed you so much...."

That was more than he could have hoped for; maybe they were finally on the way to mending things between them. Maybe then she would stop turning to that Khivar bastard.

Something inside him seemed to realize, that if they were ever going to really mend things, he was the one who was going to have to take the first step, and it was going to have to be a bold one. He decided to be bold and to let her in a little more, encouraged as he was by her declaration. "It's been hard, without you. I've missed you terribly and I can't seem to get you off my mind-- I'm still hopelessly in love with you."

He paused and nuzzled her cheek affectionately. "Well, Lonnie. Since we've both been missing each other so much, what are we going to do about it," he asked her playfully, trying to bring them back to the old level of affection they used to have with each other, and to lighten the mood a little, to give her time to think.

"How about we take a moonlight stroll in the gardens? That way we could talk and look at all of the gorgeous flowers there, flowers that don't even compare to you."

hey krista, why don't you introduce ava's mom? kinda have her sidle up on the happy couple and make some scathing, cutting remark guised as a sincere compliment towards either zan or ava? or both?

and I was thinking, so let's say ava's mom and khivar are incahoots: who's using whom?

now that's a question to ponder. Selena, any preference or anything?

hmmm good point. Krista, youre more than welcome to play Ava's mother. Give her a name and flow with it! I don't see Ava's mother being in cohounts with Kivar. Quite the contrary, she would want to accomplish it all on her own. It is Ava who's made the mistake to get involved with him. And it would be interesting if even her mother didn't approve. Especially cause now Ava is married and has no need for Kivar (or so the mother would think). What do you think about that???

scifidreamer, lol you're so funny. you can just call me Sel if you want. It's a lot easier and takes less time to spell. that ok? :-D

GUYS!!!! I tried bmailing Shama, our Zan and it seems that it won't go through. I don't think it's me. I sent another bmail out and it worked. I don't know what's up with her, but if anyone sees her online, let her know we were looking for her ok? Does anyone want to temp for Zan in the meantime????

*Eliza*
She slowly opens her eyes and her sight immediately falls on the bright moons of Antar. They were finally there. Thank God for quick air travel. She looked over at Serena who was making sure all was in order. Maybe she'd been sleeping longer than she expected. She stifled a yawn and looked at the sky again. It was just getting to be early morning. They'd flown through the whole night. She looked across the bay at the castle full of light and music. Something was obviously going on. But what? Did they know she was coming?

"Serena, is there supposed to be someone meeting us here? Or are we to make our way to the palace ourselves?"

OOC: Okay, Thanks Sel, I'm going to be Ava's mother then...

So, how about ignoring my previous two posts...I wrote how after Rath left her *Ava*, she went into the ballroom and went straight to Zan...

I'm going to post now that she runs into her mother instead....

I think it works out better that way since Zan has not posted and Khivar is looking for her...Okay???????????

But, if you guys don't like that then just let me know and I'll edit it...*I'll keep the other two up for now*

OOC: For this part, I just copied most of it....

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

Ava

My vision blurs as Rath yells at me and I see red.

My rage takes over and I want to kill him right there.

Does he not realize that I could have him killed?

Well, if he keeps it up, then he might find out...

He walks away and I have half a mind to run after him and slam his ugly face into the wall.

But, I stay where I am.

I watch until he is out of sight and then I break down and cry.

I sob and slide down to the floor.

Why is all of this happenening to me?

I should be happy...I have everything that I ever wanted.

But, I'll never be happy as long as Rath hates me and Khivar won't leave me alone and as long as that Eliza bitch is still alive.

I wipe my eyes with the back of my hands and stand up brushing off my gown.

I walk back towards the ballroom, still not deciding if I should tell Zan about my encounter with Rath.

And then I think back to that vile, disgusting thing Rath said to me.

Overweight Hyena!

How dare he? I think glancing down at my body as I walk.

Have I gained weight???

I shake my head and enter the ballroom.

Almost immeditaely I spot Lonnie and Khivar dancing together very closely.

I walk along the side of the room, glancing at them and Khivar meet's my gaze.

I look away, I hate him.

So why can't I help but have that little jealous pang in my stomach?

I keep walking and refuse to look back at them.

I spot Zan with Lareck and I make my over to them.

But I am then interrupted by my mother who pulls me off to the side of the room.

"Mother, what do you want?" I ask irritated.

"I am just wondering where my daughter wondered off to on the night of her own wedding party." She tells me with this mock sweetness.

A waiter walks by and I grab two glasses off his tray, both for me.

Mother knows this and as much as she hates it, she grabs her own.

"I went to the ladies room." I tell her taking a long drink from my glass.

Then she does the thing that I hate most in the world...

She squints her eyes and purses her lips and studies me, as if to see if I am lying...which I am, but that is not the point...

"Ava darling, I don't know where you were, but you were gone an awfully long time." She tells me disapprovingly. "You were just made his wife. It will do you no good to leave his side for long periods of time. WE've worked to hard to get here, haven't we?"

I sigh and finish off my second glass and place them back on the wiater's tray as he comes back around.

"Yes, mother." I sigh and then spot Rath walk into the room and make his way over to Khivar and Lonnie.

My face relects no emotion but deep down I am smiling.

I smile because Khivar will no longer be dancing with Lonnie, even though I don't know why it bothers me.

And I smile as I see the look that Khivar is giving Rath.

The look scares me, but I smile inside because I hate Rath and maybe Khivar can help me with him.

Khivar can help me get rid of my problem with Rath permantely...

Now, if only I hadn't vowed to never go near Khivar again...

"Look at those two fools." my mother whisper's to me. "They know that she is not being truthful to each of them, yet they continue to bicker."

I nod my head not really paying attention.

"Good thing that you no longer associate with Khivar..." My mother says looking at me.

"Of course not." I tell my mother.

I turn my head to watch as my husband still stands with Lareck and does not make a move to intervene on Lonnie and her 'beau's.'

I snicker, something that mother also hates, and turn back to face her.

"Mother, I really ought to be going. As you said I shouldn't leave Zan for too long...We've worked to hard for this."

Without waiting for her to reply I once again try to make my way over to my husband.

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

OOC: Okay, I know that it was long, but I had to get everything in there.

So I've left it open for Khivar to approach Ava and after that I will post her mother's reaction...

*Anyone think of a good name for her mother? I don't have a clue!!!!!*

Okay, so just let me know if that was okay and I'll leave it at that....

*Vilandra*

Rath tells me that he's still hopelessly in love with me and says that since we both miss each other, what are we going to do about it? The question has such a playful, flirtatious quality to it that brings a loving smile to my face. This is the Rath I've missed! I want to throw my arms around him and kiss him passionately right here and now, but I restrain myself because a princess does not engage in such public displays of affection. It's reserved for private. Not that I was ever one to follow the rules and conventions....I do have a wild side to my nature....but I know that Zan is watching, and the last thing I want is to do anything more to earn his disapproval. I can't take any more of our incessant fighting.

So I declare my love to Rath simply. "I never stopped loving you, Rath..." His smile as I say this lights up his face. I can see that he wants to mend things just as much as I do, and he's willing to do his part.

And to prove it, Rath suggests, "How about we take a moonlight stroll in the gardens? That way we could talk and look at all of the gorgeous flowers there, flowers that don't even compare to you." I blush at the compliment.

"I'd love to," I tell him. That garden is one of my favorite places on the palace grounds, and Rath knows me so well to suggest going there. "Shall we?" I ask smiling. He nods, and arm in arm we walk toward the door. On the way out, I smile at Zan and see him smile back at me. He has this look on his face as if to say,
you've finally come to your senses. It's the first sign of approval I've gotten from my brother in ages, and it warms my heart.

Khivar
********

He sees Ava talking, and he uses that word loosely, with her mother, that evil Rancorous creature- she must be one the furies his tutors taught him about back during his earth history course. Most boring waste of time ever, he thinks shuddering. He makes his way over to them, and stops to watch their interaction and listen to their conversation.

It would appear her mother, that hag Destina, doesn't want her angel to associate with him. He snickers, oh if only she knew of the activities they partake in and topics they discuss.

He watches as Ava's gaze keeps wandering over to Zan. Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we something blah blah blah to decieve. Another earth quirk, proverbial expressions "up the wazzoo".

Ava takes her leave of her mother and he follows her path parallel , hidden by the crowd of people until she's out of the direct line of sight of both Zan and Rath, but easily seen by Destina. He grabs her upper arm with more force than necessary, and while pulling her off to a hidden alcove, croons in her ear, "Beautiful girl doesn't mother approve?" His breath hot against her neck.

His disgust at Lonnie's easy aquiescence to Rath burns hot for one hot second. He thought she was ready to leave all that behind. Clearly her heart is till fractatious. He must mend it. The venom in her thorns will not be milked by faulty alliances.

I turned to Eliza, setting the itenary away in my knap sack, "No, I was just informed there is a royal function currently in process at the Palace so we will be escorted to your chambers immediately upon arrival. You may wish to attend the function of course, but they thought you might wish to rest instead, after such a journey.

"How was your nap? You slept like the dead?" I ask her trying to delay the inevitable question of just what function is being held. I smooth the skirt of my dress, then quickly cease to, Eliza knows that is my there-is-something-I-really-don't-want-to-tell-you gesture.

Larek's an ass, I think for the hundreth time since I found out about today.

I paste a everything's-fine-I-didn't-do-it smile on, and try to look unperturbed.

Great parts guys!!!!!

Is everyone still here?????

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

Ava

I make my way to my husband, wanting to know if he is ready to leave this pathetic party that is only causing trouble for me.

But, once again, I am interrupted when Khivar grabs my arm forcefully and pulls me to the side.

My eyes go wide, praying that Zan does not see, but then I realize that Khivar would never let himself be seen grabbing me in such a way.

He whispers in my ear about my mother disapproving of him.

"Of course she does not approve...I am a married woman, which means that I have no reason for talking with you." I tell him this with desperation in my voice.

The events of the last hour are taking their toll and I'm not sure how much more I can take until I explode.

"Khivar, leave me alone...please. I have what I want. I don't need you anymore..." My eyes glisten with tears, not because I am scared, but because I don't know if I am telling the truth.

Yeah Lora!!!!!

*I'm heading over to "Once Again" right after this!!!!*

Oh and scifidreamer, LOVE the name....

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

Destina

She watches her daughter walk away and feels the joy in her heart.

Not that the joy is associated with love for her daughter, she does not feel love for her.

It's a joy for herself. For getting her stupid clueless daughter to where she is today...

The Queen of Antar.

When Ava had been born, Destina knew that Ava was destined to be the Queen...

But then Zan had been promised to that earthling Eliza...

So Destina had plotted against Eliza and to her advantage, Zan had lost control of himself and Eliza had been sent away.

And now, finally, Ava was who she was supposed to be...Queen.

She watches her walk away with the joy for her own accomplishments...and then the joy dissolves to fury as she see's him grab her daughter's arm and take her to the side.

KhivarShe thinks just as she is about to go interrput them.

Her little whore daughter had told her that they had no contact, which was obviously a lie.

She began to make her way over to them, to put a stop to it once and for all, before her own reputation was destroyed.

But then she stopped when she noticed Zan looking at her.

She smiled at him, knowing that she couldn't approach them now.

That would only lead Zan over to discover what a whore her daughter was.

She raised her glass to him, thinking of how she would deal with this situation later.

Khivar
*******

He looks down at her alarmed, "What's the matter Ava? What's making you cry?" he asks concerned, wiping away a tear that trails down her cheek.

"You'll always need me Ava. And I...will always...be here for you," he pushes her hair off her forehead, "Let me help you Ava," he presses a small kiss to her the corner of her eye. "Let me take the hurt away," he murmurs.

Ava

I stand in front of him rigid when he touches me and I want to scream.

I expected him to yell at me, but that's the thing that I hate about him...you can't expect anything.

So, instead he looks at me like he really cares and asks me why I am crying.

I want to yell at him and tell him that I am crying because instead of being with my husband, I am here with him and I can't tear myself away from him.

But, I just remain silent and then he pushes my hair off my forehead and I want to slap his hand away, but my body will not cooperate.

Then, he kisses my tear and I sigh.

He has such soft kisses, when he wants them to be and deep in my heart I know it is wrong, but it excite's me.

I find my arms trailing up his and my finger's lightly run through his hair.

"Thank you...for everything." I whisper to him while looking down.

I can't bare to look up into his eyes, because I fear for what I might feel.

Love, hate, desire, anger, happiness...I never know with him...


posted on 17-Dec-2002 3:36:42 AM by scifidreamer
Khivar
*******

She sifts her fingers through his hair and softly, quietly, without looking at him whispers, "Thank you......for everything."

It's a moment he relishes. She falls even more under his control, needs him for strength. "Shhh," he hushes her. He won't make her look into his eyes just yet, one step at a time. Patience.

"What do you want Ava? You, as Queen. What is your wish? What is your desire? You want Zan's eyes to light up as they look upon you?" he tries to keep his voice gentle. "You want him to desire you, as you do him? To smile with pride as he introduces you to dignitaries? To love you, as you know he can't?" he asks her the painful questions, he full well knows the answer to. Knowing it twists the knife in her heart a little more.

"That may never happen. But with me at your side, with me, you never have to doubt. I'll give you the stars Ava. And they'll worship you like I would," he whispers honeyed lies, soothingly to her. "Zan doesn't deserve you," and Rath wouldn't know the first thing about how to handle a delicate Rose like Vilandra. Beautiful, and fragrant, you reach to grab it and are pricked by its thorns. Half human Rose, half Antarian Starwort.

He bends down, and places a soft kiss on her lips, his hands caressing her arms. "What can I do, to ease your suffering?"

She could tell from Serena's nervous twiddling that something was up. What was she hiding?

"Well, I'm actually not that tired. I had a nice long nap. I think it'd be nice to go to my chambers, get refreshed, change and head to the celebration. I haven't been to a good party in some time."

She smiles and can see Serena's eyes widen in fear. Something was wrong. Really wrong.

*ROTFL* Yes, it's a good thing because it creates a lot of drama and fun! By the way, tell Khivar that Vilandra is what she is, she'll do what she wants...etc ;). Too much resistance for his taste or no, Vilandra has to live the way her heart tells her.

And Destina says that she's glad his balls frezze up...ever wonder why she never mentioned how her husband felt...cause his balls dun fell off...LMAO!!!!

Anyways...I can only be on until like 11, so I hope that you guys are still here....

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

Ava

What do you want Ava?

He says my name and I love the way it sounds coming from his lips...lips that sent a soft kiss to my flesh only moments before.

I can't answer, because I want a lot of things and I don't know where to start and I don't know what is most important to me...

He begins to tell me the things that he knows I want and at every suggestion my heart skips a beat as if to say...yes.

...Zan's eyes to light up as they look upon you?

Yes.

...want him to desire you, as you do him?

Yes.

...smile with pride as he introduces you to dignitaries?

Yes.

And then the most important...

To love you...

Yes. More than anything...

But he is not done.

...as you know he can't?

And that's when my heart clenches because what he is saying has to be true...right?

He is wise and he know's things that he shouldn't.

And I fell anger towards him for saying these things to me, but more so because he know's them.

I close my eyes to try and stop the tear's. I do not want to cry in front of him...in front of anyone. But especially him.

And as I close my eyes he promises me things that I know he mean's.

And he tells me something that pain's me in my heart and soul.

Zan doesn't deserve you.

And before I let my tears flow freely, not caring if he see's them, or my mother see's or Zan, for that matter...He kisses me on my lips, only a kiss that he can give a only a kiss that can make me feel so vulnerable and loved at the same time.

And then he is asking me one more thing...

What can he do to ease my pain? And I say the first thing that comes to my mind and knowing that it must be true.

"Love me." I tell him and look up into his eyes.

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

Okay, was that okay?

I really want to show that Ava really doesn't have anyone...her mother doesn't love her, Zan doesn't love her...and Khivar doesn't 'love' her...

And I think that is all she really wants...

Am I making any sense here at all...LOL!!!!!!

If it's not okay with the plot, then I'll edit, no problemo!!!!

*Zan*
I look around, my mind easily wandering. What time is it? I look down at Vilandra and Rath approvingly, but now my eyes drift in search for Kivar. I don't trust that dirtbag. Especially not around women. I look around and suddenly realize Ava is also missing. Wouldn't that be fitting? As far as I'm concerned... they're just about as perfect a pair as you can get. I look over at Larek who seems to be twiddling nervously. What is wrong with that man?

"Everything alright?" He nods too quickly and I try to refrain from laughing at him. He looks absolutely ridiculous.

"Are you expecting someone? I realize you keep looking at the clock." I watch his eyes change and feel my heart rate speed up violently. I know what that look is due to. Eliza... Even saying her name is like betrayal to my own heart. I look down immediately, refusing to acknowledge it. She wouldn't be dumb enough to come here as if I'd listen to a word she would say.

Nice parts all!

~*~ Rath ~*~

Rath took her arm and escorted her out of the ballroom. She still loved him! He felt jubilent, like he could dance or sing, which he would if he could. Instead, he just contented himself with holding her hand and leading her around the garden.

He stopped to point out specific flowers and compare them to her beauty, trying to thrill her with compliments. As he was about to point out a rose, he was suddenly overcome by the urge to kiss her. He stopped talking and bent his face to hers.

His mouth a whisper from hers, he asked plaintively, "May I kiss you, Lonnie?"

~*~ End Rath ~*~

I really like all of the characters; they're all done so well! Oh and I must say, ELizabeth Evans, I really like your Vilandra- finally Rath is getting what he needs and deserves!
posted on 18-Dec-2002 12:11:15 AM by Elizabeth Evans
OOC: Thanks *happy*. I'm glad you like this Vilandra. I always felt like Rath and she were right for each other, and he didn't deserve to be betrayed.
___________________________________________


*Vilandra*

Rath leads me around the garden and points out specific flowers, comparing them to my beauty. I blush with the pleasure of it all. It seems like it's been forever since he really showed this much love and affection. Yes, he was truly the Rath I'd fallen in love with again!

Then we stop by an Earth flower....a rose. He leans his face down to mine and whispers, "May I kiss you, Lonnie?" I can feel his breath warm against my cheek. I smile joyfully, tears of happiness shimmering in my eyes. It's been so long since he's been this romantic, and it was beautiful.

I nod and whisper back, "Yes..." and our lips meet in a soft, passionate kiss that takes my breath away...

posted on 18-Dec-2002 12:40:28 AM by Roswell428
And you're doing her very well!

~*~ Rath ~*~

The kiss was passionate and indescribable. It had been something he had been longing to do for a while now, ever since they had become estranged. He continued to kiss her, and gradually he wrapped his arms around her, just glad to be able to have the chance to do this with her again.

He just hoped he was doing enough to begin to win her back to him. He had to win her back!

~*~ End Rath ~*~

Well, I've unfortunately gotta get off now. I'll see everybody later!

'Night *happy*
---------------------

*Vilandra*

Rath deepens the kiss and wraps his arms around me, and I automatically wrap my arms around him, holding him close. The kiss was the sweetest, most amazing kiss we'd ever shared, filled with all our pent-up love and passion just searching for an expression.

He certainly was making every effort possible to win me back. And oh, yes, it was working....I practically melted against Rath, my body tingling with desire for him that was so welcome and familiar. I'd missed this thrill of excitement from being with him....

Serena
*********

Oh no. My eyes widen with trepidation. "Uh, Eliza? I just," I gnaw on my lower lip. Just spit it out already Serena. She's a big girl, she can handle this. She is the Royal Princess of Earth, she knows how to handle sticky sitiuations with dignity and aplomb.

I steady my voice and look her directly in the eyes, "Zan's celebratory reception for his marriage to Ava of Calderon, is currently being held. You are, of course, cordially invited to join the happy couple as they commemorate their nupitals."

There I said it. My heart is beating like crazy in my chest and my breath is coming fast. Why do I feel so anxious? Like I'm next to give a speech in the Lords Hall?

"We don't have to go Your Highness," I rapidly say. What can I do to make this better? I try and hide my grimace.

also, LMAO about what Destina said. Khivar's huddled in a corner begging me to keep the mean lady away from him. ::chuckles:: you crack me up.

Khivar
***********

"Always Ava. Always," he murmurs before gently kissing her again. He kisses her silver tracked cheeks.

"A thousand beats of my heart against yours," he says against her cheeks.

He kisses her her eyelids, "A hundred gentle caresses," his lips travel down to her neck, his hands smooth over her curves.

"Ten searing brands of my lips on your body," he nips at her neck.

"One word filled with adoration," he kisses her harder on her soft lips. His hands pull her roughly close to him, "Ava," he moans.

He pulls away breathing hard, he licks his lips absent mindly, while staring at hers. Teardrops sparkle like diamonds on her thick eyelashes. He rubs his thumbs against her cheeks. "You're beautiful Ava.

"Now go back. Go back to Zan, and show the universe how unworthy he is of you." He pushes her towards the alcove opening.

"Never look back Ava," he says.

His eyes darken as she tilts her head high and straightens her shoulders. You're a fool Zan. And your blindness will be my triumph. A wicked grin spreads across his handsome face. Now to tell Vilandra he can't stand in the way of her happiness. And if that means losing her, only to suffer the anguish of seeing her in another's arms, then he'd gladly do it.

That fop Rath, he snorts dismissively. He will suffer no fools. Especially those who stand in the way of his plans. He leaves the alcove through a hidden passage.

Guys I'm so sorry. School has kept me really busy lately. I'm back though and school ends friday so I can post more. Um.. where am I?

SHAMA!!! Glad you're back!! I was worried about ya! Tried to b-mail you, didn't work. Ok, well, it is Zan's wedding night, they're holding a party. Eliza has just arrived on Antar, however she has yet to see any of the royal family. She is there with Serena. Larek is the only one who knows they are there that night. Ava and Kivar are at odds as Kivar tries to control her. Vilandra and Rath are mending things. And that's basically it for now. :-) Hope that helps!!!

*Eliza*
She stares at Serena dumbfounded. She felt as though she'd been punched in the stomach.

"I'm sorry?" She looks at Serena again, wondering if she'd heard correctly. Of course she hadn't. That was impossible. She could tell by Serena's sad eyes that perhaps there was truth to the nightmare.

"You are, of course, cordially invited to join the happy couple as they commemorate their nupitals...." She looked at Serena in amazement. I'm invited. Well, of course I'd be cordially invited! What better than to welcome Eliza by inviting her to my wedding ceremony?! TO AVA! She felt the heat of anger burn through her blood. Ava had been after Zan for years. Ava had been after THE THRONE for years. Truthfully, Ava had been after attention. She had even tried to befriend her once, but to no avail. Ava was set in her ways. She was cold and bitter and unfeeling. The worst kind of person. I'd like to see him try and stay warm with her!

She bit back the jealousy that was beginning to scream in the back of her mind. NO! She would not get jealous. That was completely unecessary. She was over him. Had been for years. She was here for one thing, and one thing only. To discuss peace between their planets. Politics. That was her job. She built up an emotional wall full of royal duty and a crushed heart. He wanted to play, she could play harder. There was no one better at being diplomatic than Eliza. She'd show him the meaning of ruling a kingdom.

"No... on second thought, perhaps a good night's rest would do me good. We have a long day planned for tomorrow. Serena, make sure you schedule a meeting with his majesty first thing in the morning. I'd like to begin these discussions as soon as possible and head back home. I'd also like to speak to his highness Rath and her majesty Vilandra to get their take on the war. I might need Larek, I know he is the strategist. We need to talk peace and treaties. I don't want war to be an option. I'm exhausted. I shall speak with you first thing in the morning. Have a good evening."

OOC: Glad you guys liked the Ava part...and great Khivar part!!!!!!

And Shama...good to see you here...I'm on my way...LOL!!!!!

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

Ava

He kisses me and it feels right.

But I can't help but wonder why Zan doesn't kiss me like this?

Could all that Khivar tell's me be true?

With each kiss, my heart jumps and be knees tremble.

He kisses my cheeks and my tears and my neck and my lips.

His hands on my body are hot to the touch, it feel's so good but I know that it's wrong.

And then he moans my name and I can hear the love he has for me in his words.

And everything he tells me fills my mind and heart and soul with pride.

He pushes me towards the alcove opening, towards Zan.

He knows that I am fit to be a Queen, just not Zan's Queen.

Never look back.

He tells me this and I won't.

I am Queen. I was raised to be Queen, Zan married me and that's the way it is. No matter how much anyone doesn't like it.

This is my kingdom and I deserve it, dammit!!!!

I lift my head high and straighten my shoulders and make my over to my husband.

Zan is my husband and he will love me, no matter what...

I spot him still standing with Lareck and approach with a smile on my face; not looking back.

"Enjoying the party?" I ask the both of them.

Semi-OOC: Destina laughs at the cowarding Khivar...mwah ha ha!!!!!! LOL!!!!

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

Destina

She watches her daughter exit the alcove and see's the flush that is creeping up over her face. And she see's the determination set on Ava's face.

She watches as her daughter finally goes to her husband and she smiles.

But she keeps glancing at the alcove waiting for that bastard to emerge, but he does not.

She politely excuses herself from the conversation she wasn't really listening to in the first place and exit's the ballroom.

She begins to make her way down the hall...looking for Khivar.

She worked too hard to get her daughter where she was today and she would die before she let that ass ruin all of her dreams...

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

That okay, scifidreamer?????? I'll edit if you had other plans for what Khivar was going to be doing...

Geez louise Krista you're so frickin good at this being Ava thing! ;-) Great posts!

Anyone know if Sarah is ok? Aka TobascoChick. If anyone's heard from her let me know. I hope things are ok. In the meantime... we need some Larek interaction. Again, anyone who's willing and interested... feel free to temp until she comes back. :-)

I think that maybe her computer broke again...I could temp for Lareck until she comes back....

Let me know Sel....

And thanks...Ava, to me, is very confusing and doesn't really know what she wants...and she just has all these emotions and crap...

Let me just say..the chick is messed up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Zan

"It's okay." I say

I want out get out of here.

I need to get out of here.

I reach for her hand.

"Let's go for a walk, we've just been married and I've hardly had anytime to see you."

I kiss her then lead her outside.

I need to forget for awhile

Forget everything

Forget her

She doesn't mean anything to me anymore.

Eliza means nothing

I am married to someone else

She means nothing

Nothing

So why am I waisting my time thinking about her?

Because deep down she will always mean something.

I'll still always love her
*************
Is that ok?

OOC: I second Sel's sentiments, you are doing a such a faboo job with Ava, I really like the complexity and added dimensions you've fleshed out in her. and no, that Destina post was perfect have her intercept him, I wanna see what happens!!! I was LMAO at her comments. He's now walking around with a specially made thermal insulated cup!!!

Khivar: yeah, that's right hag, what'cha going do now? Huh huh?

he saddens me *big*

excellent Zan part Shama!!! duly complex!

rock on.

I grin as soon as I feel her presence. Eliza's finally arrived.

She'll be here soon. I frown as soon as I see Zan grab Ava's hand and walk away. He should see her.

One more time. He might not want to follow destiny, but they should at least end up on good terms.

I think he's running from it. From destiny, from Eliza. He can't run forever. I want to see him be in love again. The "love" he has for Ava just isn't the same he once had for Eliza.


I want my son back. Not the one that does anything to impress,but the one that loves from the heart, and not from what he's told to do.

That Destina is cruel. She pushed Ava over the edge in my oppinion. She pushed and pushed until she gave in.

I sigh softly,maybe Eliza can knock some sense into Zan when she sees him.......

Hey anyone here??????

Oh and Liz_Parker that post was great, but Eliza is not coming to the party...she want's to see Zan tomorrow...but great part *she is SO right about Destina!!!!!* LOL!!!

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

Ava

Let's go for a walk, we've just been married and I've hardly had anytime to see you.

My heart swells as he tells me this and then kisses me.

I only wish that Khivar could see Zan kiss me.

I shake the thought out my head and focus on my husband.

He takes my hand and we go outside.

"Zan, I cannot tell you how happy I am right now." I tell him acting like a giddy idiot. "I am going to be the perfect wife."

I smile playfully at him. "Why don't we leave this party and go home?"
posted on 19-Dec-2002 12:16:13 AM by I_LOVE_NICK
Destina

She walks the halls of the palace with a look of determination that is practically identical to the one her daughter wore only moment's before.

She is on a mission and as she lifts up the hem of her gown her pace quickens.

She has to find him.

She has to warn him to stay away from her clueless daughter.

Her dark blue eyes cloud over as she remember's watching him grabbing her daughter's arm and taking her to the side.

She will not let him take away what she has worked so hard for.

And as her mind begins to fill with ways to get rid of him, she finds him in one of the hallways far away from the ballroom.

His back is to her and he is studying a painting.

She approaches quietly from behind.

It is always good to sneak up on your prey when they are not expecting it, so they have no escape.

She smiles in a way that almost looks pained and her eyes take on a predatory look.

He will not ruin this for her.

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

OOC: Was that okay? And I totally think that he would know she is behind him...but I know that you are already thinking that...OOOOHHHHH!!!! This is going to be fun...hehe!!!!

"I couldn't agree with you more. Lets go."

We walk to the doors

"Go up and wait for me in our room, I'll be there soon." I whisper in her ear.

I'm going to find Rath, I need to talk to him

So where is he?


posted on 19-Dec-2002 12:59:35 PM by Elizabeth Evans

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

Ava

I kiss Zan briefly and leave his side and make my way up the stairs.

The smile is permanent on my face and nothing could wipe it off.

I reach our room and the butterflies begin to do their thing. I feel like a child.

I look around the luxurious room and spot what I am looking for.

Candles.

I place them around the room and with the wave of my hand I lite them.

I make my way over to the vanity mirror and sit before it.

The smile is still there becaue this is where I belong.

This is my home.

I pull the pins out of my hair and let the blonde curls fall smoothly down onto my shoulder's.

And as I brush my hair waiting for Zan to appear, I keep thinking the same thing...

I am Queen. I am Queen.

And my smile only get's brighter.

OOC: Okay, I forgot that I offered to temp Lareck...so I'm sorry and here is a part for him...if I totally suck and you want to replace me...by all mean's go ahead...LOL!!!

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

Lareck

Zan leaves his side with Ava and they exit the palace.

He watches them go and the gnawing feeling in his stomach does not relent.

The girl is hiding something and he fear's that it is something big.

His thought's turn to Vilandra and he know's that she too is hiding something as well.

He needs to know what it is and can only hope that it is not as bad as what he is hiding.

And the thing that he is hiding is that he know's that Eliza and Serena are going to be arriving on Antar.

He hasn't told anyone and has a good reason not to.

When Eliza arrives, things are going to change.

He makes his way across the ballroom when he see's one of his staff enter the room as well.

The man waits at the door for him.

"Yes?" He inquires.

"I was sent to inform you that Princess Eliza and Serena have arrived."

His heart drops, as he did not know that they would be arriving tonight.

He nod's to the messenger to take his leave.

Larek walks down the halls to exit the palace with a look of concern on his kind face.

He must go talk with Serena.

They have a lot to discuss.

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

OOC: Okay, that like totally sucked and I'm really not feeling it...so if anyone else want's to temp...
C'mon Down!!!!!!

LOL!!!!!

Serena
**********

I sigh inside. This hurts so much. I hate having to be the one who tells her these things. Too much honesty sucks. All I can do is relate to her the facts as I'm told them, and so often facts are misconstrued as the truth.

I watch as a myriad of emotions play over her beautiful features, before, finally, a curtain is dropped. And all is hidden. It's sad to admit so, but I'm glad she can school her features so well. That she is difficult to read. That she can guard her heart's reaction. And I'm grateful she doesn't feel the need to do so with me.

"No... on second thought, perhaps a good night's rest would do me good. We have a long day planned for tomorrow. Serena, make sure you schedule a meeting with His Majesty first thing in the morning. I'd like to begin these discussions as soon as possible and head back home. I'd also like to speak to His Highness Rath and Her Majesty Vilandra to get their take on the war. I might need Larek, I know he is the strategist. We need to talk peace and treaties. I don't want war to be an option. I'm exhausted. I shall speak with you first thing in the morning. Have a good evening."


Wow, that was a mouthful. "Yes Eliza," I answer demurely. "Shall I have supper brought to your rooms? And I'm pretty sure I can find Larek, so that you may speak to him tonight, if you wish, and get an objective summation of events." I say as I walk just behind her.

OOC: Hey scifidreamer..no post for Khivar???? Destina is coming up for the kill...is he still crying in the corner??? LOL!!!

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

Larek

He reaches the palace where Serena and Eliza are staying no long after.

He is greeted at the door and enter's the front hall.

"Would you please inform Serena that I have arrived." He tells the servant at the door.

She nods and leaves him standing alone, wondering how he and Serena are going to keep all of this under control.

OOC: OHHHH GREAT LAREK AND SERENA!!!! :-) I like, I like!!! Great job guys! Makes it so much better when you've got people reacting so well!

*Eliza*
"Yes, I think it best if I speak with him tonight. However, I want you to be there. Please." She tried to make it sound more like a request than a command. Instead, it sounded like a wounded plea. She was a mess. This was going badly and she hadn't even spoken to HIM yet. She followed Serena and was taken into what would be their temporary home.

The place was beautifully furnished and lavished with all sorts of dark colors and golden hints. Her favorite colors. It was obvious someone had gone out of their way to make her comfortable.

"Does anyone know we are here?" She looks over at Serena who nods when a servant comes into the room.

"Sir Larek has arrived milady." Eliza looked at Serena who at this point could only shrug in similar confusion. He must have been the one making all the major arrangments. Then she saw Serena tense. This was the big moment. Once they began, there was no going back.

I finally just unplugged everything.

Zan

I look around for a bit before remembering that Rath and Lonnie had headed out towards the gardens. I look outside and they're talking about something.

I walk out and clear my throat. "Rath I need to talk to you."
posted on 22-Dec-2002 9:00:51 PM by Elizabeth Evans
*Vilandra*

Rath and I stop our kissing at the unexpected interruption and turn to face my brother. He asks to speak with Rath. "Oh, Zan....of course." I look to my brother in silent query over whether he needs me to leave them to talk privately or if this is something that I can stay to hear and perhaps contribute to.

Hey everybody. Sorry I haven't been around for the past few days- my grandmother died unexpectedly and it was quite a shock. Needless to say, I haven't been able to get on for awhile. I haven't had a chance to catch up on any of my fics or the RPGs I'm in yet, but I'm going to try to be on tonight to do that.

I'm just posting this to let everyone know why I disappeared. I'm going to get on tonight (after I get off work) and catch up with everything, so I hope to see you all then.

I'll be posting this in all my fics and the RPGs I'm in. See you all later.

I was pretty happy. I'm so sorry I haven't been around much guys. Work is a pain and my boss is getting on my case. I just got on vacation and I'm exhausted. Either way, my comp has been acting up... but I'm gonna post now! :-)

*Eliza*
She looks up as she watches the servants carry her bags in and make her comfortable. She looks over at the dining cart. They had brought in her dinner. She couldn't help but wonder who REALLY knew about her appearance.

"Tell me Serena... am I truly expected here this soon? Or is this going to be a total shock? I'd like to be prepared for the battle I know will lay ahead with his Highness and his new wife. I'm going to have to prove myself more than ever before as a politician and basically as a strong woman. You need to tell me EVERYTHING that's essential. Things that have gone on that I've perhaps missed in my time gone, if anything. Things I should expect to hear. Anything." She looked at her dear friend and in her heart questioned herself. Sadly, she knew NOTHING could prepare her for what she would face. Little did she know, her heart was completely right.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS GUYS!!!!!!!

****************************************************
Larek

He stood in the massive entrance rubbing his hands together nervously.

He had no idea what was going to happen now that Eliza had arrived, he only knew that deep down in his heart, it was going to be bad.

The servant returned.

"They are expecting you Sir." She said and walked away for him to follow.

He followed her up the stairs and down the hallway to a door.

"They are in there Sir." She told him.

"Thank you." He said and she walked away.

He took a deep breath and pushed the door open to find Serena and Eliza standing there looking at him.

"Good evening ladies." He said closing the door behind him.

Thanks. I really appreciate all the support I have recieved from everyone. Well, here goes....

~*~ Rath ~*~

He continued to hold her, until Zan's voice interrupted them.

"Of course, sir," Rath replied in his best military manner. He began to wonder if Ava had ever told him about their confrontation. He winced at the memory; he hoped not, because no matter what he had told Ava, Zan would still chew him out for it.

Oh well, all he could do was wait and see...

OHHH!!!! I'll miss you Krista!!! Have fun ok?! And Roswell428, don't worry about it.... always here if u need an ear. :-D

*Eliza*
It was as if the world went in slow motion. Before Serena could answer her question Larek walked into the room and Eliza felt herself spiraling back almost five years. The days of her youth that she dreaded. She wished so badly she could go back and do things differently. But things didn't work that way. She put on her best version of a smile, in the situation she was in.

"My God Larek, you look just as I remember you. It is my pleasure to see you again. Please, have a seat. We have much to talk about. I suppose you left the celebrations a bit early in order to meet me, so I will not leave you waiting."

She tried to avoid the bitterness in her voice in the last part but found that she couldn't. She just couldn't hide the feelings that she knew even he could not deny she felt. The situation was complicated and her anger towards Zan burned more. Wait until I see him. I'll show him that he has NO effect on me! I've become a better person without him. And she sighed, knowing that of course, none of it was true.

Hope everyone had a great holiday!!!!!

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

Larek

He settles down in the chair across from Eliza and Serena.

He studies Eliza's face and see's how beautiful she has become over the years. But he can also see the pain that is trying to hide underneath her cheerful face.

He glances to Serena and is not at all surprised at how beautiful she is. He always thought that she was the most beautiful woman he had ever laid eyes on.

His heart swells at the sight of her back in front of him.

He forces the thought from her mind and looks back to Eliza.

"Thank you. And I assume that you have heard about the wedding?" He asks this carefully, with a gentle voice. He does not want to upset Eliza, she does not deserve it.

Hopefully you guys haven't abandoned me. Shama, take your time. I hope things will work well for you. Can I ask someone to temp for Zan??? Krista, great Larek. There is something going on between he and Serena. They were lovers but she left our of loyalty to Eliza. Let's get with it.

*Eliza*
Of course she had known about the ceremony, yet hearing him say it was... heartwrenching.

"Of course. I have been informed about the wedding. Had I known previously I would have brought them a gift. Which is why I will not request to speak with his highness tonight. I'm sure he will be busy. However, tomorrow is the latest. I do have a course of action to follow and very little time. You know about the revolt against Antar and the rebel groups formed on Earth, don't you?" She looked at Larek and smiled at his warm, loving eyes. She had missed him. He had always been like an older brother to her. He nodded softly and she smiled and continued on.

"Well, I have been informed that they are incredibly powerful and led by someone who perhaps has access to Antar. Freely. This can cause great danger. We must seek him out, but first we must be willing to work together. That is why I wanted to speak with you. I doubt Zan would want to ally with me. I need you to convice him." Inside she said a prayer. It musn't be too late.

Zan

"I really need you to do something for me. Just keep an eye on Lonnie, make sure she doesn't go anywhere alone with Khivar. Make sure she doesn't leave and if she does I need you to come and get me. Also I'd like you to inform me the moment Eliza gets here."

I turn and walk away. Time to go see my bride.

Glad to see you back Shama!!!!

*Eliza*
She looked at Larek who sat in silence, debating what she had just told him. She wanted to desperately know what was running through his mind.

"Larek... be honest with me. As my friend and the man who was my mentor for years... what are the chances I will be taken seriously? Does anyone else beside you know I'm here tonight?"

She held her breath, the reality of it all hitting her. She reached over and grabbed Serena's hand tightly in her own. She needed strength. She herself didn't feel strong at all. Zan would make her feel like a child again and she would disappoint her parents and perhaps even her own heart's intentions. She didn't even think she could do this.

I'm back!!!

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

Larek

He watches as Eliza stares at him wide eyed and grips onto Serena's hand. He glancesa at Serena and he knows that she is wondering the same thing.

"No, Eliza." He says turning back to look at her. "No one knows that you have arrived yet. Though I think Zan is the only one who knows that you were coming."

He says this gently and warmly trying to rid her nerves. But as he leans forward in his chair a sad smile crosses his face.

"I honestly do not know how Zan will embrace your presence." He continues. "He is not the same man. He has changed so much it is almost unbelievable. Ever since his marriage to Ava, he is not the same."

He pauses for a moment.

"And a word of advice Miss." He says and his eyes cloud over in seriousness. "I would stay away from the Queen herself. She is even worse than what Zan has become."

He sighs then, knowing that this kingdom is falling apart, but he does not know how to save it

OOC: Me again...okay I am also going to post a small Ava part. But I am going to hold off with a Destina part...scifidreamer seems to have gone AWOL. I haven't talked to her since Christmas day...but hopefully she'll be back soon.

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

Ava

I sit at the mirror and lose track of the time.

Before I know it I hear the door open and I turn quickly, half expecting it to be Khivar.

I smile when Zan closes the door behind him.

I slowly make my way across the room to him and wrap my arms around his neck.

"Do I finally have you all to myself?" I ask as I bring my lips to his ear and playfully pull at his earlobe.

*Eliza*
Eliza looks at Larek and returns his sad smile.

"Thank you for your frankness, however, I feel it is not the Queen who I am terrified of. I fear much more the person Zan has become. And the effect that will have on keeping these arguments completely political. Rather than emotional. But enough about me. How have you been? Are things going well for you? Tell me, in your own words what you think can be done to fix this horrid situation that has come up between our planets. I am grateful to see you again. Although saddened greatly by the circumstances."

She turns to reach for the cart of food they placed next to her and smiles at the sight. There was ice cream of all flavors imaginable sitting in small bowls. Eliza's face suddenly lights up in a smile as she hands one to Serena and then one to Larek. At first he refuses politely, but she quickly convinces him otherwise.

"No use talking on an empty stomach." She smiles as she digs into her strawberry delight and is suddenly taken back to her younger days, when she and Zan would sit quietly in the reading room, just enjoying each other's company as she played the piano and he took his lessons from Larek. It was a simpler time she craved so much it was painful.

Larek

He settles back in his chair with the bowl of ice cream on his lap and smiles as he see's Eliza's face light up.

He never realized how much he missed her until he saw her.

He shoots a glance over to Serena who has also grabbed some ice cream and is smiling at Eliza.

He feel's the butterflies in his stomach at the sight of Serena's beautiful smile. He wished so much that the two of them never left.

Suddenly, Serena glances over and he smiles in embarrassment and looks back to Eliza.

"Honestly." He begins answering Eliza. "I have not been two bad. Rather busy with the wedding and trying to keep Zan under control."

He advert's his eyes for a moment.

"I have offered many suggestion's to the King on the circumstances of this kingdom, but he does not listen to me. It's his way or no way." He sighs and shakes his head nervously.

"That is why you have been summoned here." He tells her and looks into her eyes.

"If Zan will listen to anyone, it will be you." He tells her this and see's that she is about to say something, but he cut's her off.

"Eliza, you have arrived here with a very positive and professional attitude and I pray that it rubs off on Zan. But I am sure that you two will come up with a solution."

He smiles at this point to hide the worry. Because he knows that if they don't get along, it will be the end of Antar.

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

OOC: Okay Sel...was that good? Should I edit? I'm not very sure about this part! :(

Zan

We're kissing now, but it doesn't feel right.

Its like I shouldn't be doing this.

Why do I feel so guilty?

She's my wife, its not supposed to feel like this

I pull away and take her hands and bring them to my lips

"I'm sorry, my love, but I am not feeling very well tonight. If its alright with you I'd just like to get some rest. We'll continue this tomorrow."

I'm safe for tonight atleast

Hey! Sorry I haven't been around. The problem is that my computer crashed and I only have access at work or at school. So don't give up on me!!! PLEASE!!! I'll try to fix it soon! :-) sorry.

*Eliza*
She looks at Larek, his words touching a place deep inside her. If Zan would listen to anyone, it'd be you. Was that true? Would he still care and value her opinion?? She hoped so. For their planets sake. For her heart's sake.

"Thank you Larek. I do hope that my professionalism will rub off on him. I would hate for this to become persnoal. Because it is NOT personal. It's politics. Now out of curiosity, when am I scheduled to see him?"

She imagined what he'd look like now, years later, married man, then quickly erased the image. She had to be strong for her people. She thought of how she'd react. Bitter? Angry? Jealous? Simply heartbroken? It was too soon to tell.

Larek

He studies Eliza for a moment. She appears to be so strong, but he knows better. He has known her for most of her life and she is a strong woman...but he prays that she is strong enough to handle the chaos that is happening on Antar.

"Tomorrow in the afternoon, I will inform his majesty in the morning." He tells her dreading talking with Zan in the morning.

He glances to Serena who is studying him and he tells himself that he will have to speak to her privately before the night is over.

"But how have you been? Really?" He asks leaning forward and looking at her as if she were still the young child she was when she left.

OOC: Okay, here is a Ava part. I'm holding off a Destina part until Khivar *scifidreamer* HINT HINT get's back here. Although I do know that Khivar is deathly afraid of Ava's mother...so I kind of understand....LOL!!!!!

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

Ava

One moment his lips are on mine and the next he is pulling away telling me how he is not feeling too well. He brings my hands to his lips and I nod in sympathy...just like a wife would do.

I watch him re-treat into the other room to get some sleep and the sadness overcomes me.

I try to swallow the lump in my throat, but it does nothing to stop the tears from running down my cheeks.

I sink to the floor in the large room and draw my knees to my chest.

This was all I ever wanted but yet it somehow feels like I'm in hell.

I love Zan. I've always loved him. We are meant to be...

Why can't he see that?

The sobs escape my lips and I rest my head on my knees.

I want to go and get into the bed next to him. Even if just to sleep...just to be near him.

That's all I want. I deserve it.

But, I don't go. I stay on the floor crying.

And while I think of him laying in the next room sleeping.

I can't stop another thought from jumping into my mind and making me feel like I have to throw up.

What would Khivar think if he could see me now?

*Eliza*
She stares at Larek for a few seconds, the true compassion in his eyes sending her back to a time long ago.

'I've missed this place. The smell, the colors, the moons and stars. You. I've been miserable on Earth Larek, miserable. Everything I had ever known and loved was here. And then I was snatched away and left like a lounging puppy. All by myself with no friends and no one to talk to... except Serena. She's the only reason I'm alive right now. But things are going to change. I promise you that. If there is one thing I will make sure of, it's that things WILL change."

Eliza smiled and scooped up another spoonful of ice cream. Her determination was burning a fire in her stomach. Things were getting intense in her mind. She was planning out speeches, arguments, facial expressions. She was in complete control. Or so she thought.

"And you? How've you been?"

Krista, thanks for cheking in on me! :-) Much appreciated! I'm sorry I haven't been around! PLEASE LIVEN THIS UP FOR ME!!! I've had a tough few weeks! I bmailed you, let me know if u got it, k?

~*Leihana*~


I sigh. I really hope Eliza can take control of the situation on Antar.


Zan might have fuss over her being there. But maybe her being there will do him some good. I've heard from rumors that him and Ava were to be married. I'm not sure how Eliza will take that.


As long as Serena's there everything will be fine....or so I keep telling myself. My husband is off doing work somewhere. And all I can do is sit here and worry. I'm supposed to be in control....and do everything right. In other words be perfect.

But I know deep down I can't be. I may be the Queen of Earth, but it is rather tiring. Sitting around, giving orders.....sometimes I wish I could take Eliza's place. Be young again....not have to think seriously,no child to worry about. Be your own free spirit. It's not possible of course.....but a woman can hope, right?

I AM SO SORRY!!!!! I am so incredibly sorry that I have been gone for so long- everything has gone wrong over the holidays- first my grandmother died and then right after that my computer broke (the monitor fell and cracked open) and it is now finally back in working order (thank God!). I have been so computer deprived these past couple of weeks (because I had no way of getting on), it is not even believeable! As a result of all of the commotion, I have fallen SO behind in all of my stories and the RPGs I'm in, not to mention all of my emails and bmails and stuff for other sites, so it is going to take me a while to catch up.

I am posting this in all of the RPGs I'm in (that I HOPE I'm still in) just to let everyone know what happened to me. Once again- I am SO sorry- please forgive my long absence. Thank you all for being so patient with me.

Let me just tell you how glad I am to be back up at school, and that the break is finally over!

You too Roswell428!! Though I already told you like a thousand times! LOL! I'm just so happy that people are finding their way back!

*Now if only scifidreamer would stop dissappearing on me...*AHEM* LMAO!!!!

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

Larek

"It has been different around here." He tells her honestly.

"Sometimes I feel like such an old man." He laughs at this although he sometimes swears that it is true. "Things are so different and tireing."

He shakes his head. " But with your help that will all change. I have faith in you."

I walk over and take her hand look down at her. "I've always had faith in you."

He gives her hand a gentle squeeze knowing that fate of this planet depends on the young girl in front of him.

Thanks again, I_LOVE_NICK.

~*~ Rath ~*~

Rath nodded his assent to Zan's orders and watched as Zan walked away from him. 'Probably to join his new monkey whore,' he thought to himself sardonically.

So he was going to have to keep Lonnie away from Khivar and stay close to her at all times? That was not a problem.

With a small grin, he turned back to her. "Where were me, my lady," he asked. Abandoning his earlier meekness (now that he was feeling more confident about her feelings and the soldier in him was coming out), he grabbed her upper arms and pulled her to him. Grabbing her firmly, and half dipping her at the same time, he put his lips back sweetly on hers.

He smiled inwardly at her gasp. Just because he was more confident and commanding now, didn't mean he couldn't still show sweetness.

~*~ End Rath ~*~

Was that okay? I did this because I wanted to show the other side of Rath's personality, he is a general after all, not just a meek/ jilted lover.

Let me know if this is alright.

GREAT JOB GUYS!!! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!! :-) Anyone spoken to Lora?

*Eliza*
She smiled, a bright smile as she looked into Larek's amazing blue eyes. He had faith in her. That was all she needed. She'd been so afraid she'd be alone there, just she and Serena fighting their way through, but knowing that he believed in her made her strong. She was going to be fine.

"Thank you Larek... that means the world to me. Now, it is getting late and you know I cannot function without much sleep. Feel free to stay until whatever hour, I'm sure Serena could keep you company. I am going to head off. Have a wonderful evening. It's been great seeing you again."

She got up and although he got up to bow, she hugged him instead and kissed his cheek the way she used to as a child. She could see the confusion on his face and simply smiled. It was nice ot be so free again. She headed to her room and looked out of the large window. The lights were dimming and the noise was dying down. THe party must have ended. Well Zan, my party is just about to begin. She smiled to herself and got ready for bed.

Is everyone still around?

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

Larek

"Goodnight Eliza. Sleep well." He tells her and she smiles and retreats to her room.

He shifts in his chair and turns to Serena who has been silent the whole time.

She looks up at him with her beautiful eyes and he feels the butterflies in his stomach take flight.

"Serena." He says her name softly, enjoying being able to say it again. "You've been awfully quite."

He smiles at her as she sits on the chair across from him.

"How have you been?" He asks hoping that she missed being on Antar but mostly that she missed him.
