Damned And Divine (Final)
Lena kept her eyes downward, not daring look anyone in the eye. Her hands were folded on her lap, becoming tighter as she tried to keep them from shaking. She exhaled softly. It was beginning to feel as if she could not breathe, and it was becoming a struggle to stay calm. She had the thought of getting up and leaving, but then the eyes of everyone in the castle dining room would be on her. She would never hold herself together under their gaze.
"Are you okay, Lena?" Bertrand asked softly.
She glanced at him, the only one seated next to her at the end of the table. She nodded in reply, not having the energy for words. Her eyes wandered around the room. The tables were filled with soldiers and others that worked in the castle, all immersed in discussion of what was to happen now. Lena felt awkward among them. The letter she had received from Eleanor this morning asked her and Bertrand to come.
Lena's eyes fell upon Eleanor when she stopped in the doorway. She looked around from where sh

Lena held the sobbing Princess for a long time. Villagers had come out of their homes upon hearing all the commotion, and now there were shouts and whispers about what had happened. Questions that no one wanted to answer. Lena held the trembling Eleanor tighter, tears burning in her own eyes at the sounds of her cries and the expressions of the faces around her. Aldhard and Alaia looked drained and defeated, the villagers confused and afraid. And then Lena's eyes fell upon the only smiling face in the crowd when Margareta stopped next to her.
"Two kings," Margareta placed a finger upon her lips and clicked her tongue. "You're as good at killing as you are at bringing those that should be dead back to life," she eyed Eleanor.
As if knowing what was about to happen, Alaia put her hands on Eleanor's shoulders and took her in her embrace instead, and Lena faced Margareta. Looking furious, Aldhard went to Prince Leon and grabbed him by the wrists, forcing him to his knees. "You will

Everyone looked up at the sky as the last of the clouds faded, the sun now shining bright. Eleanor squeezed Lena's hand. "Thank you, Elli," Lena told her. "You helped me change."
"You did it," Eleanor said with a soft smile.
Hearing the approaching footsteps, they turned to see Fredrik, with Leon by his side. "So, you have been set free," Fredrik stared intently.
"Yes," Lena said, "I have."
Alaia got back to her feet, and Sara placed a hand on her shoulder, frowning at her shakiness. "And the curse has been broken," said Alaia. "Dethia will not fall to you."
"You will be put to death for what you have done!" Aldhard shouted.
Hearing a soft chuckle, they looked to the woman that was coming toward them. "That's her," Sara said. "The witch."
The woman came to a stop, twirling a finger around a strand of her long blonde hair and a smile on her lips. Her eyes looked Lena up and down. "You are her, then?" her tone was of amusement. "The one protected from violent death?"
"Yes," Lena stared b

The throbbing pain was fading slowly. Lena looked at Alaia. "I... I never said I would help you."
"It does not matter," Alaia said. Lena stared at her, startled at how small she looked. Never before had she seen Alaia look so sullen, defeated, so hopeless. For all the years she had known her, Alaia had only let certain emotions be seen. "The kingdom will die if you choose not to help, and I trapped you here so that you could no longer hurt people or the kingdom," Alaia went on. "You are free now, and you may choose to help, but you cannot destroy it as it has already been destroyed."
Eleanor put her hand on Lena's shoulder. "You're sorry for everything you did," she said softly, "and now is your chance to make up for that." She leaned closer, taking one of Lena's hands in her own. "And even if you can't make up for it, you can do something good now. You can help those people." She gave Lena a warm smile.
Lena stared at her for a moment, a fluttering warmth in her chest. She sque

Lena was sitting at the table in the kitchen with Bertrand when Eleanor rushed inside. Eleanor immediately began telling what she had seen happen in the village. A mysterious witch had done something, and Sara's brother, Baldwin, had coughed up blood. Several people then rushed to his side and brought him to the city. When Eleanor finished, she plopped into a chair with a heavy sigh, looking breathless from talking for so long. Lena remained quiet, looking at her, not knowing what to say. It was all very curious.
"What do you think, Lena?" Bertrand frowned.
"I am not sure," she replied. She did not know if the witch was connected to what had happened to Baldwin. "She did a spell, I am sure about that," she said, thinking of how Eleanor described the woman's actions. "I've no idea if it is connected to Baldwin."
"No one else coughed up blood," said Eleanor. "If it was a spell it would have affected everyone, not just him. Perhaps he has become sick."
"That may be it," Lena said. She hop

Winter had finally come to an end. It had been cold and harsh, and Eleanor was overjoyed at the lovely warm day that today was. She walked slowly through the woods, humming quietly. Most of the snow had melted and there was a bird chirping up in a tree. She smiled when she saw Lena ahead, sitting on the ground near the trees with the blue leaves. Lena went there each day, as the calmness gave her energy and made her feel stronger. She had been doing much better lately, though still had nightmares.
Eleanor sat down next to her, setting down a basket of fruit. Lena opened her eyes and smiled when seeing her. The smile always caused a warmth in Eleanor's chest. "Bertrand just returned from the shops," she nodded at the basket. "I thought maybe you would be hungry." Bertrand ventured to the shops of neighbor kingdoms, where no one knew his face, and did shopping there.
"Thank you," Lena took a red apple from the basket. Eleanor ate a few grapes, looking around at the birds and insects flyi

Lena burned the lifeless body of every knight she passed, the ash then blowing away into the cold, howling wind. She came to a stop when she saw a body that was not of a soldier. Her eyes immediately welled with tears, and she covered her mouth with her hand as her breath hitched. She walked to Bertrand slowly, falling to her knees at his side. Snowflakes landed on his frozen pale face. "I'm so sorry..." she sobbed. "You were right about them, about everything. I didn't listen. I'm so sorry..."
She rested her head on his chest and sobbed. Her hand shook and trembled, and she whimpered at a sudden burning sensation that ran through her body. She lifted her head and looked at her hand that was over the wound on Bertrand's chest. She lifted it and gasped when seeing the wound close. She backed away when Bertrand took in a sudden, gasping breath. He blinked his eyes and shuddered, and turned his head slowly to look at his frightened, shaking sister. "Lena?"

Eleanor groaned softly as her eyes fluttered open. She took in a heavy breath and stared up at the ceiling for a moment. Her vision was blurry, and her body was sore and aching, her throat dry and head softly throbbing. She sat up slowly and looked around, her vision slowly becoming clearer. She was laying in a bed with thick white blankets over her. The room was big and empty. Her heart beat faster when she remembered what had happened. She ran away, and went into the woods, and found Lena and her brother Bertrand, who was supposed to be dead. She remembered the loud snapping sound, the death of the guards, and then all turned to black. She had lost consciousness.
She got out of bed and walked slowly through the room, her legs aching with pain. She stopped in the open doorway, and looked around the hallway. There were many doors on each side, all of them closed. She went to the staircase and heard quiet voices coming from downstairs. She started down, clutching the banister for suppor

There was a gathering in the castle's throne room three days later. Eleanor was standing next to the throne where her father sat. She had barely slept in those three days, haunted by the endless thoughts and nightmares of what had happened. She had not taken the potion Lena had made for her, not wanting to touch or even look at it. Thinking about Lena just made her break down in tears. She had gone through her wedding dress fitting without paying any attention. She realized that she knew nothing about her wedding at all, and her father and Fredrik wanted it to be held only two more days from now. They believed that it would bring joy to the kingdom after the tragedy. For Eleanor it was just another tragedy.
Alaia was standing in the center of the room, silent and sullen. Sara and Baldwin were standing beside her, looking very much the same. "Thank you for coming," Grant said gently. "I would like a proper farewell for your brother, and wanted to speak to you about it."
Sara nodded. "Ye

"No!" the trembling scream made Eleanor jump in surprise. Baldwin stared at his younger brother with wide eyes, shaking violently as he took in shuddering breaths. "You bitch!" he screamed at Lena, clutching the hilt of a sword that was on the ground next to the dead body of a soldier. He swung it at her in a rage, slitting her throat. Lena gasped and stumbled backward, choking and clutching her throat with both hands. Eleanor let out a squeak of surprise and slapped a hand over her mouth.
Baldwin dropped the sword and fell to his knees at his brother's side. "Magnus!" he sobbed, squeezing his hand.
"What happened?!" Alaia asked breathlessly as she came to a stop. Many other guards and soldiers came rushing their way, along with Fredrik, Alfred, and Grant. Alaia's eyes widened when she saw Magnus. "No!" she gasped.
"I'm sorry..." Aldhard stared in shock. "I couldn't..."
Alaia knelt next to him, placing her hand on his cold cheek. "Magnus..." she whispered, t

Bertrand kept staring at everyone with a look of confusion while his white shirt quickly stained dark red. His expression never changed as if he never registered what had happened as he fell to the cold hard ground. Lena ran to him, falling to her knees next to him. "Bertrand!" she gasped. Eleanor had never seen a face as pale as Bertrand's currently was. She could actually see the color fading from his skin and eyes. "Bertrand..." Lena whispered. His brown stared up at the gray sky. Lena shook her head slowly in disbelief as her eyes welled with tears that ran down her cheeks. "No..." she whispered, shaking her brother slightly. "Bertrand!" she called again, her voice breaking.
Eleanor put one of her trembling hands over her mouth. She swallowed the disgusting taste back down. "It seems that he wasn't protected by a spell," said the soldier that had shot him. Eleanor looked at him, shocked at his words.
Lena looked at him, her red, teary eyes wide with disbelief.

Lena strode out of the room that had been shocked into silence. The sound of her heels upon the floor slowly faded away. Eleanor was frozen still, her thoughts racing. She was feeling lost and confused at what was happening. Alaia then turned and rushed out of the room, and Sara, Baldwin and Magnus followed. Others begun to race out then, everyone looking either anxious or curious. Eleanor was soon among them. She pushed through the crowd and saw Alaia and the siblings ahead. "What are you going to do?" she heard Sara ask Alaia, her voice shaking.
"I don't know, Sara," Alaia answered, her voice slightly unsteady.
"W-Will they really burn her house down?" Magnus asked, sounding terrified.
"Yes, I believe they will," Alaia answered.
"S-She might kill them," Sara said.
"We can't let that happen," said Baldwin. "We can't let her kill anyone."
Outside, Eleanor saw soldiers marching ahead, and in the distance she also saw Lena. Then she heard Lena like she had never heard her before, and it

Only a little later, Lena was summoned to the castle. Alaia walked alongside her and the three siblings trailed behind her. There was a crowd in the throne room, guards and soldiers filling each side of the room. Grant sat upon the throne with Fredrik and Leon next to him and Eleanor on the other side, her heart pounding with the panic she was feeling. There were a few others standing near the throne, Alfred among them. Grant cleared his throat. He was clearly nervous. "There have been more killings," he began, "more done by a witch. Lena, these people say they saw you do it. That you threatened them."
"I threatened all of them?" Lena asked, her eyes scanning them.
"Alfred says that you threatened him, and murdered those people in front of him," Grant told her.
"Yes," said Lena, "that was three years ago. I am sorry that he is still upset about it."
Everyone looked at Alfred. "Yes, three years ago, and again last night. I saw you, and I was not the only one." He looked to those next to

Eleanor rushed down the corridor and turned a corner. Her back against the wall, she took in a deep breath. She wanted to escape. Last night she had overheard her maid being instructed about wedding plans. She was to wake Eleanor before sunrise and take her to have her dress made. Unable to sleep at all, Eleanor got out of bed before her maid could fetch her. She was in no mood to be fitted for a dress. She had many ideas about a wedding dress, she had painted them all and was in fact very passionate about the wedding dress she would wear for her wedding. Not for this wedding, however. This was not what she wanted. She did not love Leon, she did not even like him.
She placed her hand over her mouth and yawned. Everything that had happened yesterday kept playing in her head, over and over again, keeping her awake and sick with anxiety. She knew when she did fall asleep that nightmares would come, and she was dreading them. While she stood there, she heard her father's voice down

Eleanor woke with a shock. A piercing scream had pulled her out of her sleep. She sat up and looked around upon hearing shouts. She got out of bed and went to the window. It was dark, but she could see figures moving out there. The screams told that the attack had begun. That meant that Harold and his men had already been in Dethia. It was the only way they could have made it to the city to attack in surprise. They had passed the border, probably in disguise, and had been staying in one of the villages, perhaps. It was not the time to think about it.
She quickly changed from her nightgown into a long sleeved red dress and a hooded black cloak. She tied her hair back into a braid and pulled her hood up. She rushed to her jewelry boxes and opened the large box, where hidden underneath her necklaces was a dagger. It was shimmering silver adorned with rubies on the hilt. She had seen it being sold at the shops in the square a little more than a year ago and had purchased it secretly. The f

Eleanor kept her arms around Lena for what felt like a long time. They were both quiet, only the sounds of faint, distant laughter and chatter coming from the throne room. Eleanor wished that she could stay this way forever, in the comfort of the witch's embrace. "Elli," said Lena softly, and Eleanor felt Lena's fingers caress the back of her head, "the feast is starting."
Eleanor let out a shaky sigh. She looked at Lena, who was smiling sadly at her. She softly ran her fingertips down Eleanor's cheek, and Eleanor closed her eyes at the touch. "Let's go together," Lena held her hand out, and Eleanor took it. They walked the hall hand in hand and returned to the party. There was a pain in Eleanor's chest when Lena let go of her hand, and she desperately wanted to take it again, to hold it tight. She had to sit next to her husband to be, however.
Time dragged on and on. Eleanor stared down at her hands folded on her lap. There were so many voices around her, the room loud with drunken la
