Merriot Carmelliane, The Magistrate of Elements
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

As Princess Hikaru was sleeping, a loud knock came from the door. It got louder. Knock, knock, knock. Hikaru awoke from the sound. Still drowsy from her sleep, she reluctantly opened the door. A maid appeared and fell on her knees. The maid was panting as she said, “The Elders are calling for you.” Hikaru asked what the reason was. She thought to herself, “I wonder what this is about… I hate being woken up in the middle of the night.” “I… I…. do not know my lady, I was instructed to call you as quickly as I can…. sorry…”
“Alright. I’ll be out in a minute. ”
“My lady, I’ll be waiting outside.”

As soon as Hikaru got changed, she began to go where the maid was leading her. They arrived in one of the large private meeting rooms. Loud murmurs can be heard from the door. Hikaru takes a deep breath, anticipating what might happen next. She knocks on the door and opens it. The murmuring stopped as Hikaru entered.

The meeting room was big and brightly lit. In the center, there was a long table where the elders were seated. They all had serious faces. Hikaru said, “You called for me.” A stern female with fine features and a beautiful hair answered, “Yes, please. Take a seat. We have an important matter to discuss.”

Hikaru wondered what important matter she was called in for, while getting in her seat. The woman continued, “This is the first time, we meet Your Highness. Let me introduce myself, I am Merriot Carmelliane, the Magistrate of Elements.” Her introduction was followed by a man around his mid-forties who looked like he was a rich noble. He gave off a grand but graceful aura. He introduced himself as William Sinclair, the Maestro. The last of the elders was petite and had gentle figures. She looked very young. You wouldn’t think she was an elder. She had a beaming smile on her face while saying in a warm voice, “I am the Oracle of Memories, Nanashi. Pleased to meet you. Anyway, please stay calm as you listen to what we are about to say. Think of this as a friendly advice.” Hikaru gave a nod.

Maestro William cleared his throat and spoke with authority, “An hour ago, a report from the Royal Secretary, Luchia Yoshino arrived. In her report, it mentioned that the carriage of the King and Queen was met with misfortune. It was completely destroyed.” He paused for awhile and said, “Both the King and Queen are dead….” Hikaru was so surprised that her eyes widened and her body started to quiver. After getting her composure back, William explained, “We can’t announce their deaths for various reasons. One of which is the chaos and uproar it will cause to the citizens of the City. Another would be the bodies hasn’t been retrieved.” Nanashi continued, “We all talked about it and came to an agreement.” Merriot added, “Our proposition is to make you rule the City for the time being. But due to circumstances we will have to do it in secrecy. The only ones that know about this is the three of us including Luchia Yoshino and General Travas.” Hikaru was even more surprised than awhile ago, stood up from her chair. She said, “I’m sorry but I need to think this through.”

As Hikaru was walking out the door, William called out wait in an attempt to stop her. Nanashi gave a warning through eye contact and said, “Let her have some time to process everything.” Hikaru bows and closes the door behind her. When Hikaru left, Merriot spoke, “This is something big for her. But she’ll come to her senses soon.”

Behind the doors, Hikaru was dazed. She was aimlessly walking around the hallway. Suddenly a dark figure leapt before her. It was a ferocious monster!

End of chapter 1 part 2.

Part 3 is done already but you have to wait a month first. I actually wrote until Chapter 2 part 3. ^^ But this is for the purpose that I don't miss a release of a month's chapter while I'm on hiatus.
