In the bed they had made love in the early morning, Jimmy and Orias
where sound asleep. The morning light shone through the windows of Orias'
chamber, slowly creeping into Jimmy's eyes. Once the light hit his eyes,
Jimmy squinted. Groaning, he opened one eye, letting the light glare in.
He quickly closed his eye and yawned. He moved his head to look as his
love. A smile came over his face as he looked at Orias. His bladder hit,
telling him that he need to go to the bathroom and bad.
Jimmy carefully crept out of bed, making sure that Orias would not
be disturbed. He put on the robe he was wearing before they made love.
Jimmy quietly made his way to the door. Opening the door, making sure it
didn't make a sound, he left the bedroom. After closing the door, he
started to look for the bathroom.
The smell of food cooking in the kitchen caught his nose, 'That
smells good. I have no time to smell what's cooking I need to find the
As he was passing a door nearby Orias' chamber he heard a
co-motion. The door was cracked open a little; Jimmy peeked in to see what
was going on. The queen was talking to one of the female servants. 'Make
sure that everything is perfect. Prince Trinity is our guest and he needs
to feel at home. Now go and get things prepared.' The queen ordered the
servant to her assignment.
The servant opened the door and then closed it shut and looked to
her left seeing Jimmy standing there. She let out a gasp, 'Oh, I'm sorry I
didn't see you there. Can I help you with something?'
'Don't worry about it, hope I didn't scare you that bad.' Jimmy
The maid laughed. 'Actually you can help me, where are your
bathrooms here?' Jimmy became embarrassed at asking.
'The what?' The servant raised her eyebrow.
'Do you even have bathrooms, so I can relieve my bladder pressure?'
Jimmy started to fidget.
'Oh you mean the washrooms? Yes they are down that way behind you.
It's the last entry way to your left.' She laughed.
'Thank you, miss.' Jimmy smiled and turned around.
'The door opened and the queen peeked out, 'What's going on here?
Hurry before he wakes up girl.' The queen barked at the servant.
'I'm sorry m'lady, but this man wanted to know where the washrooms
were.' She pointed to Jimmy, who was headed towards the washroom.
'Oh, it's Trinity. Hurry girl, get to work.' The queen quickly
pushed her to her duties.
'Hopefully, he didn't hear what I was talking about. I want it to
be a surprise for him.' The queen giggled and closed the door.
After feeling better, getting rid of the pressure, Jimmy returned
to Orias' chamber. He looked at the bed to see that Orias was gone. 'He
must have went somewhere around here. It can't be that far away.' Jimmy
Suddenly, he heard a knock on the door. 'Come in.' Jimmy
The door opened and the female servant came in. 'Well, isn't nice
meeting you again?' Jimmy laughed out loud.
'It is.' The servant snickered, 'I am here to tell you that your
bath is ready and that the prince is waiting for you. He says to come and
'Thank you very much. Tell him I'll be there in a moment.' Jimmy
The servant bowed and left.
Orias was starting growing impatient, 'He said he'd be here in a
moment. Where is he?'
Orias heard the door opened and quickly hid behind the door. Jimmy
walked in and looked at the steam coming from the water. He sat down by the
water and put his hand in the water. He took his robe off of him letting
it slide off. 'I thought Orias would be he. At least that the maid said
so.' He thought.
Jimmy climbed in the water feeling relaxed and calm. He rested his
head against the edge and closed his eyes.
At this moment Orias came out from his hiding place and slowly
crept over to the bath. Orias got behind Jimmy and pushed his head into
the water. This came to a shock to Jimmy. Coming back for air, with his
hair all wet lying flat over his eyes. He opened his eyes and looked to
see who the prankster was.
Orias was laughing so hard he didn't notice he was floating over
the water. He stopped laughing looked at what was happening. He looked
down and saw the water, then looked at Jimmy, who had a big grin on his
face. 'You thought that was funny? Let's see how funny this is for you
then.' Jimmy let the gentle breeze he created to disappear.
Orias fell in the water, causing water to slash all over. His head
slowly came to the surface. Orias removed his long hair from his eyes and
squirted water at Jimmy. Jimmy was not amused and splashed water in his
face. 'Okay, truce! Truce!' Orias laughed.
Orias grabbed Jimmy's arm and pulled him closer to him. 'Good
morning honey.' He gave Jimmy a good morning kiss.
'If you call that a way to say good morning then.' Jimmy
sarcastically remarked and pinched Orias in the leg.
Orias jumped, 'Hey, I said truce!'
'Alright then.' Jimmy turned his back to him and leaned against
Orias' muscular body.
Jimmy started to hum a tune to himself, while Orias stroked his
finger on Jimmy's arm.
They quickly helped clean one another. Jimmy then headed back to
the bedroom. He dried his hair with towel that was wrapped over his
shoulders. He heard voices outside the castle. He looked out the window
to see what was going on. He saw a man about six-two with raven black hair
in full armor. Noticing that the man had other men with him. 'He must be
one of the nobles around here.' Jimmy thought and continued to dry his
Outside, Archious knocked on the castle door. A middle-aged man
opened the door. 'How can I help you Lord Archious?' The manservant
'Please tell the prince I'm here and I would like to talk to him.'
Archious told the servant.
'As you wish my lord.' The servant bowed
'Tell him that I'll be out on the tapestry.' Archious added.
The tapestry lay below Orias' chambers. Jimmy still at the window
took a careful look at the man outside. Jimmy then saw Orias.
'What do you want Archious? How are you going to pursuade me to
take you as my lover?' Orias sounded a little annoyed at this visit.
Jimmy opened the window a bit to hear the conversation. 'What!
This man wants my Orias?' Jimmy grew a little upset.
'My prince, please give me at least one chance. I don't want to
hurt you.' Archious pleaded.
'I told you Archious, I don't have any feelings for you. Would you
just let it be?' Orias turned around and started to leave.
'What, you still believe that your prince will appear here out of
thin air? What a story, you're living in a fantasy. If you won't come
with me I'll have to take you by force.' Archious signaled his men to
By now, Jimmy was really upset at the words of Archious. 'If he
thinks he's taking Orias, he'd better get his head checked. As for him
saying that I'm sort of a fantasy, soon he'll find out I'm no fantasy!'
Jimmy transformed into his prince uniform.
Just when Archious' men where about to grab Orias against his will,
when lightning struck each of them, sending them flying.
'What kind of tricky is this you have Orias?' Archious was not
Orias was about to speak when a voice spoke, 'It's no trickery, my
dear sir, and I'm no fantasy for your information, I'm quite real.'
Trinity came out of the door that Orias was heading for. 'What!
Who are you?' Archious had his hand on his sword.
'I am Prince Trinity. That's my boyfriend that you are about to
take against his will. I'm not happy about that at all. I warn you come
any closer to him or send your men to attack me, I'll kill you easily.'
Trinity introduced himself.
'What? This can't be! You're for real?' Archious was in shock.
'Oh he is real, and yes he did kind of appear out of thin air,
Archious.' Orias added and went to Trinity's side.
'Hello hun, how's it going?' Trinity remarked.
'Fine and how about you?' Orias kissed him on the lips.
'If I can't have you, no one shall have you!' Archious charged
Archious jumped in the air with his sword over his head. All of
the sudden a strong wind blew, and Archious was sent flying back. 'What
kind of power is this?' Archious got up.
'I seem to have the powers over weather. If you cherish your life,
I'd advise you and your men get off these grounds and never return. If you
do, I'll take it that you want your death certificates signed by me. Do I
make myself clear?' Trinity warned.
'Kill him!' Archious sent his men after Trinity.
Archious' men surrounded Orias and Trinity. Trinity looked out
each side of his eyes, smiled, crouched to the ground. 'Ah! I can't
move!' One of the men complained.
Trinity completely froze them into crystals, raised the frozen
statues and sent them crashing into each other. 'Did I not make myself
clear, leave and never return.' Trinity had quite enough.
With his men around him, bruised and weak from Trinity's attack,
they suddenly felt the wind swirl around them. 'What's going on?'
Archious flew around in circles in midair.
'If you won't leave on your own, let me help you then. Have a nice
flight, and watch out for the landing, it might hurt just a little.'
Trinity sent them off into the air.
Trinity dusted his hands off, then turned around to face Orias.
Orias was leaning against the entry of the door with his arms crossed.
'What? Don't give me that look, I didn't do anything wrong.' Trinity
acted all innocent.
Orias didn't speak for a moment. 'It looked like you were having
too much fun. But it was funny to see his face when he left flying off the
castle grounds.' Orias smiled and laughed.
'Come here sexy,' Orias grabbed Trinity by his waist, 'You were
great. I love that side of you. Protecting me from that jerk. It really
kinda turned me on.' He grinned and gave Trinity a kiss.
'We have time for that later, but do you think we should get
inside? I think you're parents might be looking for us.' Trinity
At breakfast Trinity found a treat in store for him. When he
entered the dinning room he recognized it from his castle on earth from
long time ago. 'This is fabulous! I can't believe it.' Trinity was in
'We wanted you to feel like home again.' The queen smiled.
'Thank you your majesties. I really appreciate this.' Trinity
went over and hugged the king and queen.
'After taking care of some early business with some guy, who was
going to kidnap Orias against his will, this makes up for it.' Trinity
'What did you just say? Who was it my son?' The king addressed
'It was Lord Archious again father. Like my dear boy said here he
was going for kidnap me. Luckily, Trinity came in the nick of time and
sent him flying off with his men. It was so hilarious to see his face.'
Orias explained to his parents.
They all had a good laugh after they explained everything.
* * *
About 32 miles away from the castle, Archious was in his chambers,
'I can't believe this happened to me! It's an outrage. Who does this
Trinity think he is?'
'I see that you have more of a visit to the castle then you
anticipated there brother?' A woman with long brown hair stood in the
'Anisa, why don't you go bother someone else.' Archious exclaimed.
'Well aren't we touchy? Did someone bruise your ego?' Anisa
'If you must know, yes. It seems that our dear prince's prince has
come to him at last. I was about to take Orias, when he sent me and my men
flying off the castle grounds. He seems to have the ability to use the
weather in his hands.' Archious took off his armor.
'Oh, so Prince Trinity has returned to his long lost love? He used
to protect the prince? That's a laugh to see that someone could bully you
around dear brother.' Anisa laughed.
Archious just scowled at his sister's remark. 'Well, if you want
to get Orias to love you, you could of ask me for some help. I would of
loved a match between Prince Trinity.'
'What kind of twisted plan are you thinking of now my dear sister?'
'One that would successfully have Prince Orias in your very hands.
Then you could put a spell that makes him love you and only you. I'll go
to the castle and apologize for you actions, and then I'll challenge dear
Prince Trinity to a contest of powers. Orias will want to see this and be
there. I'll make Trinity to use his power to create a fog just to make the
contest just a little interesting. When he's busy with me in the fog,
that's when you grab your dear prince and go to Madame Elantris, so she can
put that spell to make Orias yours.' She told her brother.
'Sometimes having you for a sister is probably the best thing. But
what happens when Trinity tries to find Orias?' Archious brought up a
'That's where I'll make him stay and fight. If he goes into the
woods then I'll make him lose his way. I'm the only sorceress in the land
with all the powers of the four elements. Don't worry you're little sis
will take care of you big brother. But we must be on our way. Your prince
awaits you.' She puts her arm around his arms and they prepare to leave.
Later that afternoon, a couch arrived at the castle. 'May I
present Lady Anisa Prakilia.' Some one announced her in front of the king
and queen. Anisa curtsied for the king and queen.
'My dear Anisa, what brings you here?' The queen asked.
'Your majesties, I'm here to apologize for my bother Archious and
his actions this morning. He has shamed my family today. I feel guilty
how he treated the prince and Prince Trinity.' Anisa played her part.
'Is this from your father and mother Lady?' The king questioned.
'Yes it is. They have banished him from our land and home, never
to come back again.' Anisa answered back.
Orias and Trinity appeared in the throne room. 'Lady Anisa? What
is she doing here?' Orias questioned.
'Now son don't take things wrong, she is here to apologize for what
happened earlier with Archious. She tells us that he is banished from
their families land and never to come back.' Orias' mother tried to calm
her son down.
'Well then, I'm sorry for the way I acted. Do you except my
apology Anisa?' Orias apologized.
'I do except your apology my prince,' Anisa then looked at Trinity.
'Is this Prince Trinity, that protect our prince?'
'Indeed I am my lady.' Trinity acknowledged Anisa.
'I hear that you have very impressive powers over weather. Sending
my brother all the way to my parent's land with that funnel of wind. I was
wondering if I was going to meet you. You've become really famous with
that. I am a lady mage of the four elements. I was wonder if you might
accept a friendly duel of powers. I just want to see those powers. We
have no one on Arizan that can control the elements of weather. No one has
even come close, but why mess with nature itself, when we get weather all
year around.' Anisa tried to pursuade Trinity in her challenge.
'I see why not. I accept your challenge. I really need to get
some exercise, I've noticed I kind of got a little rusty.' Trinity
'We have a field for that not to far from here for our warriors.
We can use that. They aren't training or fighting today, so we'll have our
privacy.' Orias said.
Fifteen minutes Anisa and Trinity where standing in the middle of a
sand field. 'Please, don't feel afraid not using your full powers. I may
be a woman, but I heal easily.' Anisa coyishly said.
Trinity nodded his head. 'Let the duel begin!' Orias started the
For awhile they didn't make any movement. 'Why won't she make a
move?' Trinity thought to himself.
Suddenly the ground started to move underneath him. Trinity
produced a tornado to pick him up. He looked down and saw that the sand
was swirling like a whirlpool. He closed his eyes and concentrated. Ice
started to form around Anisa's legs. She quickly conjured up a flame to
melt the ice. 'Nice tactics you have, I'm quite impressed.' Anisa
'You're not to bad for yourself.' Trinity said back.
The ground started to shake again. This time water came at full
speed at Trinity. Water fell on him like a ton of bricks. When the water
stopped Trinity had his hands up keeping up a shield of lightning.
Trinity's eyes started to glow yellow. Clouds started to form overhead
quickly, the wind picked up speed. Anisa was ready for what he had in
store for her. Suddenly several bolts of lightning his the ground where
she was standing. Anisa did back flips to avoid getting hit. At the same
time she was doing back flips she sent the roots of the nearby trees around
Trinity felt something wrap around his ankles. The roots quickly
wrapped around Trinity. Soon enough Trinity was completely cover in roots.
The roots started to wither and crumble as he stepped out. 'Here's
something to make things a bit interesting. Why don't you create a fog,
and see if we can fight like that. Just use our senses in gut instinct.
Go for a little adrenaline rush sort to speak. What do you say?' Anisa
was hoping he would comply.
'Sure, I'm getting a good workout so far, why not.' Trinity
extending his arms a little.
Soon in no time fog drifted in and they continued from where they left.
Orias couldn't see anything since he was covered in the fog. Suddenly, and
arm grabbed him and covered his mouth. Orias tried to fight his capture.
He was soon running out of air and he fell unconscious.
Back in the fog, Anisa sent a beam of fire at Trinity. Trinity sent out a
beam of ice to hopefully cool things down. Suddenly, a wind blew and the
fog blew with it. 'Oh, look Orias is gone.' Anisa acted all innocent.
'What?' Trinity looked at where Orias was standing and watching.
'You! This was all setup. You're helping your brother aren't
you?' Trinity shouted.
Anisa laughed evilly. 'You're very perspective, but so gullible.'
'You evil bitch! Now is where I start getting serious! I call on
the powers of thunder and lightning aide my at my hands, sent this bitch to
hell!' Trinity chanted and a huge bolt of lightning fell upon Anisa.
When the lightning disappeared nothing was left but a hole where
the lightning struck. Trinity waited for anything to happen.
