CHAPTER NINE

“Your Majesty, welcome back.” Ubrene was still in the throne room where they had left him.

“Thank you.” Athena stood waiting for the servants to remove her armor. As the breast plate came off she heaved a sigh of relief. Her bump wasn’t large yet, but the armor made her feel very constricted.

“There are several matters that need attending.”

“I am sure. I would like to dress more appropriately if you don’t mind.” Athena wasn’t raised to be on the throne in leggings and a t-shirt. She rushed passed Ubrene to her rooms. Darian was tight on her heels. They head toward the guest suite only to be stopped by Ubrene’s voice.

“We have moved you to the royal wing, Your Majesty.”

“Thank you.” He bowed then they turned to the left instead of the right. The royal wing was at least three times the size of the guest room they were in. The door opened to reveal a long hallway with five doors on the right and six on the left. She didn’t have time to explore them all today, but she made a mental note to go back later.

She remembered from childhood the bedroom door was the fourth one on the right. Her father thought it would confuse anyone trying to kill him. They would have to go through a lot of doors before they found his bedroom. It was really a clever idea. Darian opened the door and stood there with his mouth open. She had only seen this room a few times. Her father liked to keep it private. The walls were deep red and the floors were a rich mahogany. The bed was done all in gold as were all the other furnishings in this room. There were four floor to ceiling windows. Each one had heavy long red velvet drapes. The room really spoke to the fact that it was for royalty.

“I love this room.” Darian flopped down on the bed.

“It was my mother’s favorite room.” She admitted walking to the closet. Athena found many of the gowns she remembered her mother wearing in the closet. Apparently her father was far more sentimental then he let on. She found her favorite purple high collar gown. In the human realm she always went for comfort, but that would not be fitting of her new status. Her father always wore royal garments. She couldn’t remember ever seeing him in relaxed clothing. Thankfully the bodice on this gown could be loosened. She couldn’t handle another round of pressure on her belly. She finished dressing and walked back out to the bedroom.

“Can you lace me up? Don’t do it very tight, please.”

“Certainly, but why not too tight?”

“Pregnant.”

“I have been meaning to ask you, how do you know you are pregnant? I mean I didn’t see you buy a test or go to the doctors.”

“I didn’t and it isn’t like I could do that now. You know our chemical make-up is different than the humans. Their tests would show nothing. I know because the witch told me before she made me drink the potion.
