Chapter 5
Arrogant Ex

Teron sat next to me—too close for my comfort, only a few inches away. I shifted my body at an angle to put some distance between us. He didn’t seem to think anything of it and flashed an immense smile.

“Now, where were we,” he began.

My mind was in a million places; Kadeem, the war, him holding my hand when I didn’t want him to….

“I would like for us to try again, Syira.”

What! This was way off of the subject we were supposed to be discussing. No, you arrogant Kadanan! I only want to be with Kadeem. But that seemed impossible.

“Um, I’m not sure that is a good idea to court with war upon us. Let’s be friends for now.”

“The way things are now is even more of a reason. We don’t know what’s going to happen. I believe everyone should seize the moment.”

He shocked me by grabbing the back of my head. Then he leaned in and kissed me. It happened so fast I didn’t have time to react. His lips touched mine forcefully. His hand held my head so tightly I could barely move. I heard a loud noise, and simultaneously Rose, one of our maidens, came into the room. Teron drew back and I moved as far from him on the sofa as I could.

“Oh, I’m sorry, Your Highness. I didn’t mean to intrude. Would you like any refreshments?” Rose asked, blushing.

“It’s okay, Rose. And yes, you can bring us refreshments.” I was glad for the interruption.

Teron was sitting there looking smug. The bastard. He was happy with himself and seemed even happier that someone had seen us. I couldn’t believe he had kissed me. Well, it wasn’t like I responded. He’d caught me off guard, but I was not going to let it happen again. I felt guilty, like I was betraying Kadeem.

“Very well, Madam,” Rose said, leaving the room rather quickly. Teron continued to grin. I wanted to roll my eyes, but somehow reframed.

“Did you hear a noise right before Rose walked in?” I asked.

“Yeah. She probably tripped over something.”

Maybe, I thought. Teron inched closer to me. Ugh! I stopped him dead in his tracks.

“…Teron, I’m really worried about what is happening on our planet. Can you please fill me in? It would make me feel better.”

“Sure. I’ll tell you what I know. Then you can focus on us. But I’m sure our male warriors will be able to keep

Kadan safe, if it comes down to it.”

I bit my lip so I didn’t curse him out. What a chauvinistic pig! Women on our planet fought side by side with men equally during combat.

Teron continued and told me about different Kadanan quadrants teaming up for battle. Also that there had been several occurrences of small attacks. This was a shock. I knew of one small battle where a group of Polars had come to our planet, and had been taken out, but not several of them. When was my father planning on telling us? Then Teron told me about some of his father’s fighting strategies, but I found it hard to listen now that I knew how bad things had gotten.

“Do you know why we are not in the meeting with the others?” I patiently waited for an answer.

“Well…I asked my father to ask your father for some alone time with you.”

I knew it. The nerve of him. “So this was your idea?”

“Yes. I already told you, I want us to try again. We make a good team, and your father has told me I am well suited for you.”

My father needed to mind his own damn business when it came to my personal life. But he was just doing what he always did; being the king, and making decisions for everyone’s life. Praise Sonar I heard Shi coming down the hall. She pranced into the room with a devious expression. She knew I needed her to rescue me.

“King Julius will be finishing up shortly. Teron, your father wants you in the meeting.”

“Oh, all right,” he said standing up. He grabbed my hand and kissed it. “Until next time, Syira. Hopefully, that will be soon.”

Don’t bet on it. “Okay. It was nice talking with you, Teron.” He inclined his head, acknowledging Shi. Then he strolled out of the room.

“Bout time you saved me.”

“Better late than never. He really was needed in the meeting. Things are getting crazy.”

“I know. I got a lot of information from Teron.”

“What did you find out?”

We filled each other in about the details we had learned. A while later, I heard men’s voices coming down the hall.

“I’m going to head upstairs, Shi. I’ve had all I can take of Teron for one evening.”

“Okay. We can talk more later.” She gave me a hug.

“I’m so worried now after hearing all of this. Something is telling me things on our planet will never be the same again,” I whined.

“All we can do is have faith.”

I was too scared of what fate had in store to reply. I snuck to my room. My mind was spinning in a whirlwind. When I finally got into bed I had a horrible headache. My brain was on overload. But, regardless of the impeding

war, I still had Kadeem. Blasphemy or not, I was in too deep. I would see him tomorrow no matter what.

I sat in the soft spot of the rocks waiting impatiently for Kadeem. It was fifteen past six and I was starting to worry that he wouldn’t show. I stood up and paced back and forth. Had he gotten my messages? If he didn’t, then he wouldn’t know I would be here. And if he didn’t come, then when would I see him again? I let out an uncontrolled whimper and then heard the swooshing sound from his teleporting. He appeared a few feet in front of me. I was flooded with relief.

“Praise Sonar you made it.” I beamed at him. I thought he would stride over and scoop me in his arms as he always did. But he just stood there, glaring at me. “Hi,” I said cautiously.

“Hello,” he whispered. His forehead was wrinkled, and the expression on his face was one I’d never seen before. He still made no attempt to move toward me so I bravely walked up to him.

“Kadeem, what’s wrong?” He shrugged his shoulders slightly. “You’re scaring me. Tell me why you are upset?” I wrapped my arms around his neck and he stiffened. Huh? He’d never done that before. “Please, talk to me?”

“What do you want me to say, Syira?”

“Say about what?”

“Why didn’t you tell me you were courting someone?”

“Courting someone?”

“Don’t lie to me! I saw you with him yesterday at the palace.”

I inwardly cringed. “Oh…Teron.”

“So that’s his name?” he asked, fuming and pulling away from my embrace. His eyes were filled with rage. The golden glow around his honey brown eyes blazed like fire. It was very intimidating, and I took a step back. What had he seen? Then I remembered the noise I’d heard right before Rose came in. It must have been him. Ugh! He must have seen Teron kiss me. I bit my lip, trying to think of a way to explain. But, truthfully, I was afraid of him right now.

“Syira, I have never had these feelings before and don’t know how to control them. I’ve never been this angry. I almost didn’t come today because I’m still upset. I thought you felt the same way about me.”

I bravely interrupted him. “We are not together anymore.”

“Anymore? Well, I saw you holding hands and him kiss you! It took all of my Polar strength not to break his neck. He was all over you.”

My fears were confirmed. He had seen it all.
