Damn you, ever-nagging plot bunnies ... I just can't get this one out of my head. I am focusing on one story, but I wanted to get a foundation on this new one. So, here we go ... This will be similar to Buying Love, Friends with Benefits, Mafia Princess and The One That Got Away, with shorter chapters and weekly updates: Sundays with teasers on Thursday.
We'll hear from Edward's biological father next chapter and how he responds to it, as well. We're also going to hear from Bella, too, in the following chapter, along with training and possible citrusy action?
My Beloved Edward,
If you're reading this, then you must have come into your powers. Carmen and Eleazar were my most trusted advisors and protectors, not to mention my closest friends. They are the two people whom I trust most in the world, besides your mother.
I'll tell you about her later ...
I wanted to tell you about me and our legacy first. Our family has been royalty in the magical world since its inception. Magic transcends languages and time. If anything, magic grows stronger the longer it lays dormant.
Magic is bubbling and threatening to burst from the depths of your body and the bodies of all magical creatures. Our job as fae is to control that power. You must control your power and the rest of the power follows suit. That takes concentration and focus. Carmen will help you. She's been around a long time and will help guide you with your focus. She helped me with mine.
I can imagine that you're feeling overwhelmed. I wished like hell that I was there to help you, guide you. You were the singular most important thing in my life. I loved you so much. When I held you in my arms, you were so beautiful. Tiny, pink, squirmy and brimming with powers. You will be stronger than me, Edward. Your human mother had latent magic, carried over to you. I think that an ancestor of hers was an elf or a shapeshifter, but you were and are the most powerful being on this planet.
Followed by your mate, Isabella. She's almost as powerful as you, but her bloodline is slightly diluted with human DNA. Her father was 100% human. Together, you and Isabella, you can end the darkness in this world. It's been swirling and wreaking havoc on Earth for far too long. The darkness needs to disappear and you will have a huge hand in that, along with the army of creatures at your disposal.
I know that you probably think that you're not ready for this, but you are. You're brilliant, smarter than any human – a genius among the fae – Carmen had to bury your IQ tests when you were in school. It was off the charts. You're strong and I'm not talking about physical strength, though when you become a fully grown fae male, you will be practically unstoppable. And you have the best team behind you.
Your responsibilities are to rule the magical creatures in North America. When your magic was unbound, their powers were released. Most of them will be able to control their powers, but if there is magic performed out in the open, you must stop it. That means that Aro and his minions will try to capture them, lure them to the dark side, toward evil. And dark magic is intoxicating, tempting and so very powerful, but it brings out the worst in people. It's even worse when creatures, born with good magic, become corrupt. Death is the only thing to end their suffering.
You also need to maintain the human façade. I'm certain you've read about our powers and you cannot go out as a fae. The human camouflage is different than shapeshifting. It's a part of our powers and as simple as breathing.
Now, your powers are formidable. You can use your magic to freeze, cause people to freeze solid. You can also control the weather, drawing on its power to enhance your magic. The mainstay of your magic is cold, wet, wind and lightning. With time, you can be able to freeze time and it's the entire planet that's frozen. You're the only one who can move and those you deem worthy. However, powerful dark magical creatures can break that freeze. It draws a great deal of power and you will be weakened once you use that. Finally, you have the recessive gene that can allow you to shapeshift.
You can shapeshift into any natural being and with your powers, you will not die if you are gravely injured while in animal form. Other shapeshifters die when injured in their animal form – their static animal form. They cannot choose what animal they shift into. You will take time to regenerate, but you'll not die. This is where you are stronger than me. That's my weakness. If I'm injured while in animal form, I will die. If you're reading this, I'm probably already dead and I'm not able to share this with you, face-to-face.
Edward, you have the tools to be a great leader. I just wish I could be there to see you come into your own. I loved you so much, even though I wasn't in your life. I was with you as much as I could be, as a teacher, a friend, and protector. And you mother ... she was so beautiful. You look almost exactly like her, with bright green eyes and a shock of bronze-colored hair. She was my one true love, my sih'rena. I couldn't stay in her world but, knowing that she had you, it made losing her easier. Like you, I was a part of her world as long as I could be, in some way.
I probably confused you more than helped you, but I love you and I'm so proud of you, Edward. I'm proud of the boy you are and the powerful man you will become. You have my complete faith that you will lead our people into a new era of peace. You have the love of your own sih'rena. You have the support of Carmen, Eleazar and your own trusted advisors. Trust in your decisions. Trust in you. Trust in your powers. Trust in your strength. Trust your sih'rena.
I love you, my son.
She'in ammatke sih'reno purieenn et carintee.
All my love,
A/N: Here's the letter from Edward's father. He explained things, but also talked in circles. Granted, this was written almost thirty years ago. He doesn't know everything, but he tried to explain as much as he could. He did know that Bella and Edward were a mated pair. However, he didn't know about Jacob and how she was tricked into marrying him.
We'll pick up with Edward and his livestream, revealing his position to the magical creatures of North America. And to let you know, the other creatures know they have magic but were unable access it. Now that Edward's powers have been released, so have the other creatures.
Oh, and the fae saying ... you'll see more of that. I'm not going to translate it, yet.
Leave me some loving! ;-)
