Eadred begins his speech.
"Children, 8239 years ago, Conjed the greatest and the first of his name created our nation of Tiose, a great nation where the 10 elements were finally bonded in an new era of peace, Conjed sat on the throne and ruled the kingdom. Keeping the peace intact for 100 years before his death".
This is so fucking dull. This is just like a fucking dumpy old septon speaking on, I wish I could just burn that old man. "Ruler" my ass, he isn't a ruler his pathetic, father tells me only strong capable men can hold the throne, not weak old men. Or weak men in general and having women on the throne is laughable.
"In recent centuries those who can control the elements have depleted in numbers, the commoners saw us as threats, until fifteen years ago the EndWar of Tiose occurred. I lost my brother in that war, many of you lost loved one's who all fought to keep Tiose together. Some of you were old enough to have fought in the war..."
I glance over at Firerona and Bertnie, my freak of a sister who stands like a man. I once burnt a servant alive and hacked off his manhood and tried to shove over my sister's cunt when she was in the bath. "Well she may as well have a fucking dick! She's no woman!" I bellowed in defense to a furious father. Firerona hasn't spoken to me since the incident.
And what has Bertnie done? Stupid fat asshole, sleeping with ugly woman and fucking our family's reputation? His a non entity, when I become ruler like father tells me I will. I will kill Firerona first and then Bertnie, I might skin him alive and see if the amount of skin to come off him can supply the moaning peasants with blankets or curtains or bedsheets for years to come.
My two older siblings are just stupid and weak. Firerona's a woman she should be pleasuring men, not fighting, the stupid freak. And Bertnie is drain on Tiose's resources, I am ashamed to be related to them.
As I think these dark thoughts Eadred drones on...
"The outcome of the war and 8200 years of survival have shown us that Tiose is meant to be under our control, we do not rule with terror..."
We do or else we lose control, father told me that.
"... we do not rule with greed, or lust. We rule with the thoughts of Tiose first, my children tomorrow you will begin your training to succeed me, only one of you may become ruler but I encourage you to make friends amongst those of other elements, they will build bridges ensuring a stable infrastructure for the future of Tiose..."
Ugh, Gods be damned! This is getting so boring, noticing my fidgeting, my older brother Flarnk spits at me "Stay silent brother,we cannot be rude, not here"
The pompous asshole.
I spit into his face, but Flarnk wipes my spit off his face before it can generate enough interest for others to turn their heads and Eadred ploughs on...
"So through this experience I hope not only for a great successor, but for you children to secure the future and peace of Tiose, as I can have no children of my own..."
"Why?" I ask, finally losing my resolve to remain silent. Why should I? Eadred stops speaking like he should. Flarnk turns a shade of white that clashes with his dark hair, the dragon in his pockets stirs, yet it can't be heard over the astounded silence in the large room. Every head turns to me, looks like they see me as the new ruler alright.
Eadred, splutters trying to form an answer. I don't deal with shrivelling old men.
"If you fucked a bitch then you'd have a son, then this problem wouldn't be here!" I stress to the old ruler. He is seemingly gasping now as his eyes pop out of his head. He can't even form a comeback, Gods be fucked what a weak man. Yet the silence I'm receiving sends hair on the back of my neck upwards. I ignore this unnerving feeling, fuck it, I'm not scared.
"I apologise for my brother's words, he has yet to learn about your Castration" Flarnk says, shooting daggers at me as he speaks in humble tones, Eadred seems to regain the colour in his face as he calms down "I am sure it is a simple misunderstanding" He smiles. (God what a fucking queer, maybe he fucks men instead of women, Dad says men who fuck men instead of women are unnatural beasts who will destroy the human race. I agree with him, when I'm ruler, If I find two men fucking they will be put to death by me).
Starting with my brother Flarnk.
It's obvious his queer, he has never had a lady, his only friend is his stupid puny little dragon, his obsession with the thing is unnatural. Maybe his queer and he likes to fuck animals? Father told me of a man who loved his horse too dearly, yep that's Flarnk alright. All high, mighty and queer and what the hell is a castration anyway? Stupid idiots. Making up fake words to cut the tension.
"Maybe we need to get you too bed early brother, you seem rather tired from today's events" Flarnk tells me, before I can even respond, he literally drags me by the scruff of the neck and pulls me out of the room before I can mutter a word. I try punching his hand but he holds onto me. Finally I hear a door slam behind me as Flarnk throws me to the floor.
"What the hell were you thinking!" He screams at me, his angry, very angry. Too bad for him I am too.
"It's a simple question idiot! That Castration thing's a lie!" I accuse him, Flarnk looks ready to scream as a vein in his forehead looks ready to pop from his skull "A CASTRATION IS WHEN YOU HAVE DICK CHOPPED OFF! EADRED HAD THAT HAPPEN TO HIM IN THE ENDWAR THAT'S WHY HE CAN'T HAVE KIDS YOU FUCKING RETARD!"
"THERE NOT REAL! I'VE NEVER HEARD OF ONE!"
"MAYBE IF YOU PAID ATTENTION TO THE PRIESTS RATHER THAN BURNING THEM! YOU'D UNDERSTAND WHY EADRED CAN'T HAVE KIDS! AND WHY...!"
The door behind him opens, the seven daughters of the nature kingdom and girl and boy from the steel kingdom stand there stiffly staring at us, Flarnk stares at them and back at to me, going red in humiliation, it serves him right.
"Why didn't he have kids before then?" I ask of Flarnk.
"He just didn't, alright!?" Flarnk spits, he sounds rather exhausted as he turns to the other children "I'm sorry if you heard all that, but..."
"His a fucking queer" I mutter.
Everyone turns to me, the eldest daughter of nature puts a hand over her mouth in shock "We all know it! His a fucking queer! His been fucking men! Now were all here because his been fucking men! The unnatural beast!" I bellow my anger present as one voice cuts across me.
"Dear me" the eldest nature daughter squeaks "I'm sure there must be a misunderstanding" she says trying to smile. "There hasn't M'lady this boy is clearly just a simple, foul-mouthed brute" The elder boy of steel says, I look at him and let out a guffaw, he looks so stupid. Silver hair and golden eyes, how dare he speak up to me.
"YOU LOOK FUCKING QUEER TOO!" I scream as I unleash a ball of fire at him which he barely dodges it ends up creating a black scorch mark in the door behind us. "Calm the heck down you spoiled brat!" The younger girl snaps at me, staring at the smoking patch of the door as her brother cowers behind her in terror.
"DON'T SPEAK UP TO ME WOMEN! KNOW YOUR PLACE SLUT!" I scream. As I prepare enough ball of fire in my hands, this bitch is going to get it for messing with me. But before I can unleash it a strong arm wraps itself around my neck "That's enough!" Flarnk growls as he drags me off, my fire's singe his robes, but he shrugs off the pain able to deal with the burns as I kick and scream.
"YOU'RE A QUEER TOO FLARNK! I KNOW YOU WANT TO FUCK MEN! HE LIKES TO FUCK MEN!" I scream at the other children as they stare at me in confusion. "HE LIKES TO FUCK DRAGONS TOO! YOU KNOW FLARNK! I'LL KILL YOU DRAGON IF I GET THE CHANCE! QUEER! QUEER! QUEER...!
"M'lord shall I escort you to your bed-chambers" A servant asks my brother.
"Gladly" he replies wearily still holding onto me, as I kick and scream, all I want to do is crush is stupid dragon in his pocket which is just out of reach for me. The other children vanish as Flarnk's panting is overshadowed by my chorus of "QUEER! QUEER! QUEER!" I don't stop, everyone needs to know he is a queer.
I'm in bed later, tossing and turning, when I become ruler of Tiose, which I will, I will burn them all. I think about killing them now and it makes me smile.
So much for making friends.
