Violett Blu always did her best to look on the bright side of things. It was something her mother had ingrained in her before being committed.
She had vivid delusions, believing fairies were real. That they walked among us.
Violett's mother went as far as to believe her father -long out of the picture- was of the fae. She insisted upon it, insisted he was powerful and beautiful and a vivid fantasy come to life. That he would visit her, appearing from nowhere just to dance with her in the light of fireflies.
It was something Violett never believed but still loved to hear. Now, on nights when the hospital would allow, she would dance with her mother in her fathers place.
Never thinking things would change, she would always dance barefoot in the grass, book of medicines in her arms as she studied natural ways to help her mothers mind in a way no medicines before ever could.
...until they did change.
Until two boys appeared to her from nowhere.
One proclaiming his everlasting love for her.
And the other....
"Well. aren't you just a pretty little half breed. Don't listen to him. He's a liar when he says he loves you."
I blinked at the dark haired man before me, wondering when it was he had arrived as I glanced at the tawny haired boy that had arrived a little earlier, "huh?"
The dark haired one in all seriousness nodded, "at least I'm being honest when I say I genuinely just want to have sex with you. Its really not the unseelie way to declare love. Even if we truly do love you."
"Uhm.." I blinked at the two as the glared at one another, "who exactly are you two?"
The tawny one bowed lightly, "I am Hunter, prince of the seelie court."
The dark haired one scoffed a bit, "I'm Phoenix."
