The small coastal town in South Carolina was supposed to be a chance at a new life. It wasn't supposed to turn her whole world upside down.

But being human, can she take her place as Queen to the kingdom Delmare will soon rule over? "Sounds interesting!"

 The faucet let out a loud squeak as I turned the shower on. Within seconds it sprung to life as the water began to pour out of the shower head, filling the bathroom with steam from the water's temperature.

Chapter 7

As I awoke, I turned to my side, expecting Delmare to be there, sleeping soundly beside me, but he wasn't. Sitting up in bed, I tried to remember the events of the night. Looking down, I realized I was still naked and could feel the blush creeping up my skin. Did we...





Chapter 8

While blow-drying my hair, I tried not to think about all of the events of the past week. After my hair was dry, I made my way into my bedroom, my towel wrapped securely around my body. Fumbling through my closet, I pulled out a cute, but comfortable, sundress. The ...

Chapter 12

I was standing in the sand, the warmth from the sun no longer burning my skin as I stood barefoot. The sound of the waves crashing around me as I gazed out to sea. Smiling to myself, I admired the blue water as it crept onto shore, the waves breaking along the horiz...





Chapter 13

As I played with Delmare's hair, he rested his head on my chest despite the soreness that filled them. His eyes were closed as we laid there peacefully, holding onto each other as we rested in each other's arms. It was nearly one in the afternoon and I knew by now t...





Chapter 14

Grabbing ahold of Delmare’s hand, he smiled over at me, his eyes burning gold. I let out a nervous laugh as he pulled me to his side, grabbing ahold of my waist as he pulled me closer, kissing me softly on my cheek while I laid my head on his shoulder. 





Chapter 15

I awoke at what felt like the middle of the night as the need to pee overtook me. How would I pee underwater? Was there a bathroom I could use? Delmare was entangled around me, his arms wrapped protectively across my body as he nestled closer to me in his sleep.
