The magnificent sound of a thousand fluttering wings melodiously echoed as the Winter Fae arrived at Raven Dell.
Kiena watched from her porch as the hosts of Raven Dell cheered. The Lord of the colony took forearms with the Lady of the dell in welcome.
Bored with formalities, Kiena scanned the newcomers interested in how many there were this time. She’d never paid a great deal of attention to the Winter Fae as she and Rynn took off on marvelous adventures more often than not prior to Acacia arriving.
Kiena found herself staring at one of the fae. While she was looking him over, his eyes met hers. Caught off guard by the piercing stare of blue eyes, Kiena looked immediately away.
Foolish move. She thought to herself glancing his way again.
His features were sharp and angular. Long black hair pulled back at the nape of his neck, setting off his pale skin and blue eyes, with his sharp ears pointing out of his hair. His wings were like crystal, tinted with lavender. She only imagined his voice was just as glorious as his appearance.
His eyes trailed to hers. He could feel her staring. Hiding her cheeks from the coming flush, Kiena stood and went inside to hide from the embarrassment in being caught staring. This last time she was sure he smirked and shook his head.
Her throat constricted nervously as she peaked through the narrow seam of her curtains hoping he wasn’t on to her, Kiena admitted she felt foolish hiding from him. Maybe he would forget– though, she reminded herself, being the only one in her colony with black hair, Kiena stood out like a dandelion in a field of grass.
As the colony began to disperse to their seasonal homes, Kiena watched him fly across the way with a group of males.
He was single from what she could tell. Perhaps she might consider getting to know him.
