Of Roses and Moonflowers (One-Shot)

Post by DragonRose35 on Thu Sep 14, 2017 7:11 am

The Kingdom of Pandora Rose had once been a small and insignificant realm- the man that had built the realm having created it for those that needed solace and a sanctuary in desperate times. It had started out with only a few men and women that had sought this man out personally.

This man is the very same man the kingdom calls its king now.

Centuries ago, this man once lived on a powerful plane of myth and magic- he could control the very elements, prevent natural disasters, cure plagues, and defeat powerful dark evils that ravished the realm. He didn't always do as people had wanted him to, however, as he chose his battles wisely and used his magic only when it would benefit the people of the realm for the better.

This angered many people. And the man was forced to make a very hard decision. To stay and use his magic for what he thought corrupt... or to leave and continue to use his magic only for what he knew was right.

In the end, his choice was made for him.

A powerful vortex had cast him from the realm- created by an unknown force- and for decades he was lost...

...until he was found by the people that had sought him out.

Together they had found this realm. And the man had made it into their kingdom.

And for a century he had ruled over it on his own.

But this was a lonely life... one he knew was eating away at him. For though he took pride in protecting his kingdom, he was lonely and wished for the love of someone he could hold dear to himself.

Someone he could call his queen.

.x.

A tall man- dressed in white and blue- stood in front of the portal beyond the kingdom's edge. Atop his head, settled neatly atop neat, lightly curled brown hair, and in between two large white furred beast ears- and two smooth pointed cream colored beast horns- was a silver crown and in his hand a long white staff crafted with enchanted white wood from his home realm. A single white rose was pinned to his coat- a symbol of the kingdom and of his pride. His normally soft blue eyes were sharp and narrowed now as he watched the portal, for any moment people of many realms and races would arrive through the gate to this realm and he would be ready for them.

Now only looking out for his kingdom, he had long since given up on the hope of ever finding his soulmate. His queen.

It was a vivid flash of blue light, something unlike most would ever have seen. The spectacle would have been nothing to the king though. It was as it always had been, and as it always would be, the portal announcing the arrival of new individuals into the kingdom. Though, it would remain a mystery as to how anyone could ever get used to such a magical sight.

From the shining light emerged four individuals, the latest of a group of recent refugees who sought solace within the boundaries of the kingdom. Two men and two woman, three of whom looked normal and one that simply didn't. It was apparent upon first sight that the three normal looking individuals were human, while the other was something else. But what he was exactly wasn't clear.

The group was confused, dazed from the magic that flowed through their forms. It was a magic induced tiredness, something that would only go away with rest and time...about two hours worth of time not exposed to the blue light that brought them to this realm.

When the king saw the light, felt the magic, he tensed momentarily, tilting his chin up a little as he regarded the group. It was smaller than he thought it would be... refugees seeking a new home- somewhere safe- dwindling by the years. It disheartened him, but he would help whoever needed his help regardless of how they got here. Taking in a deep breath, he let a warm smile come to his face, the grip on his staff tightening just a little bit, and he stepped closer to the group.

"Welcome, weary travelers," he spoke up, his voice soft and kind, but it projected with an important presence that was not to be overlooked or ignored. "You all must be tired from your journey. Come, this is a safe haven and you can rest well and easy here," he dipped his head to the men and women, before motioning towards the city gates.

The group looked over to the gate, almost acting as one as the king directed them towards it. They were so tired, so worn out that the prospect of rest and relaxation seemed more important than anything. One of the two men, a regular human with fair skin and black hair approached the king.

"Y-you. You are the leader of this place?" He asked, assuming just based on the appearance of the man that he was indeed the one that had dominion over this realm.

"We've come so far...can this place even be real?" One of the woman, possessing bright blue eyes and long blonde hair stepped forward. Everyone seemed to have made a move towards the gate, but the one lone oddball of the group. A man clad in black and pink, his hair and eyes carrying the same scheme.

"I am it's protector, yes," the man answered and he smiled, "and I assure you, it is very real. This realm is my lifeblood, and so long as I live, so will this kingdom."

Turning his attention to the demon- the odd one out in the group of humans- the man's expression softened as he observed him for a moment.

"You do not have to be frightened, little fox-blood," he spoke softly. "You are safe here."

He almost flinched at the voice. Not because of the tone or what was said, but the sheer fact that he was being spoken to seemed to cause him to go on edge. He was in no way used to being directly talked to in such a way...something that stemmed from how he lived back on Earth. He was usually very solitary, not one to hang out in crowds or actually engage in conversation. Perhaps it had something to do with his reputation as an outcast. Not demon, not human, not even animal...but somewhere in between.

"F-frightened?" He replied, confused as to where anyone would have drawn such a conclusion. He was confused, still weary from the journey, but he was not frightened. The king, nor the land he was now in gave him no reason to feel fear.

The man let out a low, deep chuckle, shaking his head, "Forgive me. Many have come here to make this their home, some having thought that this realm wouldn't be as safe as I claim," he hesitated a moment, before he held out the hand not carrying his staff. "Will you join us? I will show each of you where you will be staying, if you let me."

These words caught the attention of all four newcomers, the ones who had already made their way towards the gate stopping and turning around to once again face the king. "There are already set places for us to say?" One of the women said in slight confusion, not knowing exactly how everything was supposed to work in this realm. The demon, whom the king was speaking to directly seemed just as confused at this little bit of news, but he took the hand offered to him...trusting this strange man to follow through with his word.

"Indeed," the man said with a chuckle, "as I said, this land is my lifeblood. It alters itself as I see fit. With your arrival, comes new homes for you to settle in."

Leading the four back towards the city, the man nodded his head to the guards, before giving his full attention to the refugees.
