As promised, here is your first look at “Of Darkness and Light”

Tessa looked at the reflection, shallow in the glass, but what looked back at her was not her face.

Things are amiss my dear, you delve deeper than you could ever possibly imagine.” Liana’s dark eyes, brown locks, and red lips smirked at her. “You are not the saint you perceived yourself to be and now Pandora’s Box has been opened.”

Moments flashed as Tessa stared in horror as the face morphed into Desdemona’s, with her raven locks flowing as regal as she ever was. “You murdered me and now you have become me.” Her laugh wickedly echoed invisibly in Tessa’s ears. “How proud the child Queen must be now.”

No!” Tessa screamed aloud and slammed her fist against the window, cracking it just slightly. She leaned her head onto the window and as the images of her enemies disappeared, she looked through the cracks. Below the streets were empty, lights brightly shining into every dark corner. It was the world she had created, cold and desolate and vile, not the one she imagined from years before with peace, happiness, and co-existence.

You are doing your best,” The soft words of her beloved disassembled the wicked words of the Krone Queens. She did not see his image in the window. Instead she closed her eyes and saw vividly the embodiment of her lover, her king, her Greco. His words rang through in her mind. “I would have done no different.”

But somehow I feel like I have failed. I’ve failed the Nation, the Levé’s and most importantly you, your memory, and your honor.” She thought to herself in response.

You have not failed me. You had a hope, something I didn’t quite understand but it was YOUR hope. For that I would never be let down. You are doing what needs to be done and I want you to remember you are a strong vampire, a leader, and most importantly a strong queen. Reign strong, my love.”

Pssst? Are you ready?!
