“We here, we speak the languages of the fae. We live the same cultures and breathe the same air. The fae are more our kin than the humans of Taevalear, and it’s about time they started to act like it.”

Years before the events of TDATM when Krystal and Draqa met Queen Nephas, the leader of the Ard’ahlen, the organization was secretly run by Minister Sal Monarain, and Governor Isaias Zevos—their fathers. That is until tragedy struck in the form of the Monarain family’s assassination.

In this short story, peek into the past at the pair’s lives together, until their well-kept secret is suddenly secret no longer.
