Fey World Ch. 19bymadam_noe©
"I have no idea what you mean."
"Why do you hate me so much? Is it because your husband truly loved my mother? Is it because she was more beautiful than you? Is it because I am?"
"It is because your blood is common. It is by a freak accident that are the last woman of your people, an accident that you were adopted by a king and made a princess. An accident that you are now a queen."
She was wrong on that last. I was sennschat to both Angoralt and Elfgwyven, meant to be their wife, meant to be the queen of all Faerie.
"You are right in some of that. Common or royal, we all bleed red. Care to test this, my queen?"
Her eyes narrowed and she growled. The sound wasn't human, and neither were her eyes, glowing now yellow. My heart stuttered. The smell, the musk...it was her.
"You've been bitten!"
She laughed and in a flash of fluid magic entirely opposite the snap of fey, her gown shredded as she changed into an obscenely large timber wolf.
"Help!" I screamed, and it was all I could say as she attacked.
