The pink rose-petal,from a roses, what twisting column from white marble, fell to her bouquet. Emerald with disappointment looked at a pink spot, in the middle of her "ideal" bouqete. Red in a core and faintly yellow in the tip of the petal roses. How much their must wait?They are waiting more than twenty minutes, but her sisters not arrived yet!
- My God, she is always such slow? - asked Oritel.
- You badly know her. She probably correcting hairstyle, I think.
Emerald attentively looked at Oritel. The young prince was extremely good. An unruly hair was stirred continually by a wind, the beautiful suit ideally emphasized all its advantages. And them was much, and all to one were known for Emerald. "As I could refuse to him?"
Younger sister scaredly looked at Emerald. The shock of red hair was already laid, the dress was on her. Today she is devilishly punctual.
- What happened, Emy?
Emerald was straightened and smoothed a dress. Having darted a glance at the reflection in a mirror, she started talking:
- Guess, who else will come to reception?
- Mmmm... Elirion?
-He is your boyfriend. And what kind of happy I can find in this? - Marion said with reproach
- But... He will be with the friend.
- The friend of your spoiled, dragonhead prince? Didn't impress.
- But I didn't finish!
Marion with interest looked at the sister. Green eyes met with blue, filled with a palette of the most different feelings.
- The Luna told that the Radius told...
- Quicker! - Marion frowned.
- That Oritel is going to offer me to get married with him!
Marion smiled, then turned pale, and then and the smile ran away from its lovely face.
- You aren't glad?
- It after all... Only hearing...
In a breast at Emerald everything was compressed. Yes, she knew that the sister was fell in love with Oritel when they were children. But now, when so many years ago ...
"I... I will give refusal to him".
She saw Oritel and took him by his hand. The prince was developed, and his face was lit up by a smile. Pain right there pierced Emerald's heart. She couldn't answer it.
- Let's go, I want to talk.
The girl took away Oritel in "their" corner. A place in the castle about nobody's knew. The big window overlooking the green wood of Sparks, was closed by heavy, velvet curtains, and nobody could know that Emerald and Oritel there.
- I... - Emerald's voice shivered. Words slipped out - Elirion asks in marriage... To Marion.
Emerald looked at the prince, looking for though the slightest reason to change her decision. But his face reflected the same, as Marion's face earlier. Confusion, fright, frustration.
- For what? - Oritel with astonishment looked on her.
- For you will forgive me. I lie. Nobody didn't ask in marriage. I simply would like to learn, whether it is necessary to me to do that I decided, or not. I release you from all responsibilities. Go to my sister, and kiss her, as you wanted all these years. You shouldn't feel fault. This my decision, and all experiences will fall down me. Know only one, I loved you.
Oritel with amazement looked on Emerald, and then he hugs her.
- Thanks... I never will forget you...
- If you only try... After all I won't get rid of you.
He's left, having a curtain open. She knew that it will be heard by everybody, but couldn't constrain a tears. She released him, because she loved him.
But except Oritel, she loved Marion. She couldn't live, knowing that because of her, two beloved person will be unfortunate.
Emerald also didn't notice, how near by she was a young man, unfamiliar to her. Tears receded from eyes, and the girl with interest considered the newcomer. The dark and claret suit and a ring with a large ruby was told to her about belonging of the young man to a family of wizards - Adeyle. probably, it also was Oritel's friend, about whom he spoke. How his name is?..
- Adrian. And you?
- The crybaby Emerald - the girl smiled, and tried to erase tears from a face.
- No, no, isn't present - Adrian got a silk scarf and accurately began to wipe damp paths on Emerald's cheeks.
The girl with interest scrutinized Adeyl's face. Such mad concentration of his eyes surprised her. Emerald was so fond in scrutinizing of Adrian, that didn't look away when he looked in her eyes.
- Saw eyes of your sister. Eyes of the strong fairy with natural magic. And your eyes... In them I see that strange force which you bridled.
- Not about magic, please.
- Well. In sometimes I would ask, why, but now I ready to agree with you.
- In sometimes I too would ask this question.
But now I would like flirtation, or a small talk.
- I would pass to the following stage.
- Looking in what development of action.
- I would choose flirtation. More precisely that goes further.
- And in your way, I will kiss you?
- No. In my opinion you are too prudish for this purpose.
"Certainly, I knew, that he whant to do. And he solved my desire - make everything, contrary of expectations. I fell in love with him. As I knew him all life".
Emerald put the head on Adrian's shoulder, and he nestled a warm cheek on her forehead. She felt approach of the sister much earlier, than she appeared. "A sisterly intuition".
Two pairs slowly passed on long way over the area which conducted on a fine platform floating in air. There already there was Oritel's father in his royal suit, under the beautiful arch, twined flowers.
- We came here to see Adrian Adeyle and Emerald de Lis's unification, and as Marion de Lis and my son, prince Oritel.
Oritel and Emerald exchanged glances. They spoke about this day, but those days, when wanted to stay here together.
- As king Sparks, I declare that I have no anything against these marriages, and I believe that the people standing before me, are connected by Love.
People under them approvingly began to yell.
- And now...
Near king there were two gold bowls. The attention was turned on right in which fire danced. Fire of the Dragon.
- The great Dragon will solve, whether to bless your union.
Emerald trembled. She saw weddings on which pairs waited hour and more. And once the Dragon didn't appear in two days and longer. It meant that the Dragon don't want to see this union.
But Emerald's fear was vain. The flame at first licked hands Oritel and Marion, and then came nearer to Adrian and Emerald. Water in the left bowl here stirred. It was water from which Water stars were created. Contrast to Fire.
Fire touched Emerald, and water calmed down. Then she decided that it was the optical illusion.
- Yes there will be you each other the husband and the wife!
Without waiting crowd exclamations, Adrian kissed Emerald. Oritel behaved more accurately, because having concerned him, Fire showed the small fairy who grew in Marion's stomach.
Two happy pairs went then to a royal Palace. From there Adrian brought Emerald to a mansion Adeyle – her new home.
- She is so wonderful!
Emerald took the niece on hands. Marion's green eyes looked from under a long bang.
- Hair color went to the aunt Adele - told Marion.
- Whats her name?
- Gosh, you after all not give a name to a pig, you give it to your daughter!
- Oritel told the same – Marion smiled – He wants to name her Dafna.
- Dafna … - Emerald's finger touched a nose of niece – Hello Dafna. Tell to your mother, that this name suits you.
Sisters laughed. As long on Sparks it was'nt audible this ringing laughter …
Emerald seized for a stomach and didn't drop the baby. The queen took away from hands of the sister of the child, and helped her to sit down.
- I call Adrian.
- But …
- Be silent and be not afraid. I in a trice.
Marion put Bloom in a bed, and disappeared in flash of blue light. Emerald moaned. Blum turned the head to the noisy aunt. Big blue eyes with interest looked, how that frowns and compresses palms in fists.
Together with new blue flash in a room there was Adrian, Marion and Dafna.
- Dafna! Run for the doctor!
The girl scaredly nodded and ran out from a room.
- Adrian! – Emerald seized the husband by a hand – It is impossible for me now … You know …
- I know – he kissed her – But I can not stop it.
Became more dark in the afternoon, than was at night. Adrian's all body strained, his look directed in the sky. In a second he run away.
- Stop – screamed Emerald.
- Remain here - he answered.
Before she didn't hear such severity in his voice.
- Protect our daughters – Adrian told and passed out of sight.
«Daughters?.». Emerald's eyes extended. Children inside. Together with Bloom. In danger. She runs so quickly as can. From all directions explosions are heard, but only they can shine a way in this darkness.
Emerald runs in the child-room. Children cry. In total at once. «Where Marion?». She hears someone, but it isnt her sister.
The room lights up with golden light.
Her small niece nymph nods. It takes Bloom on hands, Emerald suffices the small daughters. They are twins. Even in Emerald's weak illumination distinguishes them. Still – at Alanor hair black, and Alexis - dark brown.
Emerald and Dafna run along the corridor towards the ships, ready to depart together with them on other planet. But suddenly walls round them become covered by ice, behind they hear chilling laughter. They found them. It will not be possible to escape.
- Dafna run!
- But girls?.
- I will take care of them! Rescue Bloom!
Dafna disappears together with the last light. Emerald and her children remained alone with witches who very soon will seem … Here – again laughter. They are closer. Everything is closer …
Emerald whispers a spell. On her neck there is a pendent with a magic dust. Emerald puts children on a ground, and between them puts a vessel with pollen of the fairy.
- Send them in a safe place.
Pollen takes off from a vessel and creates magic protection round children.
The blue sphere with her daughters departs. But Emerald has no time for tears. It is necessary give more time to Dafna.
- Well? Who here at us?
Emerald doesn't see them, but feels the cold which has shrouded it.
- From her smells as the nymph …
- And like from wizard whom we killed …
- Yes … That long-haired weakling …
«One of them uses ice. It is my chance».
- And now we will kill you …
- Let's force to fall asleep …
- Ice dream …
On Emerald's palm there was a fiery sphere. It right there threw it towards the witch who as it seemed to it, operates ice. But in reply to Emerald received the lightning.
She miscalculated. Sha didn't give enough time to Dafna. She deprived Alexis and Alanor of parents.
She was necessary only … to die …
