"But he is a good man," she argued to see his eyes narrow at her words.
"And I could be a bad man," he warned, "Until you're under my wing, I expect you to behave and listen to what I say. Do not let any man kiss you, Katherine. We don't want you falling into wrong hands like before so play along."
"I'm not yours to listen," she blurted out and felt her face flush with embarrassment for the second time in the evening, "I mean you can't-"
"So disobedient," he murmured before his hand moved from her waist to her back pulling her close to him and he whispered, "Would you want to be mine?"
A dark time when the shadowed creatures descended the peaceful human lands, making their existence known slowly. The time when empires were ruled by the humans conspiracy, betrayal and hate but unaware that they were just mere puppets. The actual puppeteers behind the scenes were the shadowed creatures, having the power to crush anything in their way.
What happens when a little human girl catches eye of one of the strongest shadowed creature? Will she survive the harsh reality of life or be murdered when there's politics, power and lust involved.
Heidi and the Lord:
She heard alarm bells ring in her head when the Lord took a step forward which made her instinctively take a step back, "You know, what you're doing can be considered as terrorizing."
"Well, I call it persuading."
"I believe you aren't using the right wordbook, milord."
"You didn't answer my question," the Lord was too persistent and it didn't look like he would let it go. Taking a deep breath she then said, "I don't think your excellence could be met with women of that..quality. A lord as yourself should pick someone of a better character and caliber, and settle down. Picking women of shallow mind will reflect bad on you."
"You," he said suddenly.
"I don't understand, Lord Nicholas," confused, she saw him give her a trickster smile.
"Marry me then."
The four Empires have stayed unchanged since centuries, vampires having the upper hand and being the master puppeteer of all. But conflicts have begun to rise-an internal war between the two empires, Bonelake and Woville.
Heidi was an adopted child, where one of the Duke had been generous enough to take her in. A girl, who when grew up had no idea that she would be the political bridge between the two empires. A marriage with the East Lord's relative.
Lord Nicholas with his gentle appearance and behavior made him the White King of the Empire. A man who was the kindest to the souls around him, with only few who knew what laid beneath that beautiful mask. What happens when a girl is responsible in bringing out the worst and the best out of him? Especially when it's his cousin's fiancee.
