    Maternal instincts wrestled with the iron fists of tradition. The Queen’s nurturing grappled with the King’s patriarchal leadership. Princess Angelique was the collateral damage; her upbringing was a confusing mix of submission and rebellion, embracing of her father’s lineage while endearing herself to her mother’s latent heritage.

    By the time she had reached womanhood, Princess Angelique was widely known through the seven realms as the spiritual incarnation of Hera, a heretofore immortal decedent from the recent Clash of the Gods. Peasants bowed before her, kings sought her counsel and wizards tasted the ambrosia of her honorable existence.

    Angelique grew her following carefully and deliberately. After all, she expected to be challenged by the bastard son, Diabolique. She would need all the cannon fodder she could muster.

    … a confusing mix of submission and rebellion…
    Hummm this description sounds… well viewed by many a parent.

    And …tasted the ambrosia of her honorable existence… wow this brings a multitude of images to my mind – bravo!

    Oh…such a calculating young lady.

    I love this.

      Thanks, Kathleen! Your words bring out the wonder and mystery of the unknown realms. LOL
      I’m glad you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
