Claimed by the Elven Brothers: Fate

        I was so nervous that I was actually starting to feel really queasy.

Seren lounged beside me, talking about who-knows-what as I had unconsciously started to tune him out while I stared hard into the hazy distance for signs of movement. Locien had been gone for quite some time, but with time flowing differently in the Inbetween, I had no way of knowing if only ten minutes had passed within the elven realm or an hour.

After everything they and Emily had told me about the elven king, I think it would have been more accurate to say that I was terrified to meet him rather than nervous. I couldn’t even imagine what a man that had lived over two thousand years would be like, not to mention one who physically radiated power.

That thought brought me up short, and I turned to Seren. “I can’t believe I never asked either of you this, but how old are you two exactly?”

Seren blinked at me curiously. “What brought such a question on so suddenly?”

“I was just thinking about the impossibility of the elven king’s age and realized I had never asked.”

“Would it bother you were we both His Majesty’s age?” he asked.

“Bother…I don’t think so. More like let me put several things in perspective. The way all of you have described your king makes him seem like something that couldn’t possibly exist outside of a story—more than elves, I mean. To actually meet someone like that face-to-face…” I shivered. “I guess what I’m trying to say is that it wouldn’t be so overwhelming if it turns out I had already met a couple of elves just as old and who aren’t so—sorry—alien.” I smiled a little embarrassedly.
       “I see.”
