Mirrored Promise :: Prologue :: 06 by Ainsley (@snowhawk)
Oh- Oops. The slavers didn't MEAN to kill Orrin, but the majority of them in this group are incompetent.
Also, look, some of the dates from the calendar. :3 (I have an entire custom calendar for this.)
A little information: Onyx is what is known as a Royal Guard. Kieran is a Guardian.
Royal Guards protect the entire Royal family, and traditionally, there was only one. As the Delphin Empire grew, the Royal Guard took on managing security around the royal estate, then eventually the city.
Guardians existed prior to Royal Guards. They were charged with protecting a single delphin. It wasn't uncommon for the two to develop a romantic relationship. Not recommended, but happened.
I'll have the whole break down on my website (and maybe elsewhere) later.
(Also: Multiple partners and non-het relationships are extremely common and accepted. I think of all my characters, I have one, MAYBE 2 that are straight. Basically: everyone queer af. Kinda like the writer. :V)
Most pages will be rated Teen, despite the pages themselves not needing that rating. This is what I'm comfortable with. I've picked the rating reasons as what's relevant for the full chapter, and other chapters will get different ratings.
This is only part 1 of the prologue. I'm saving the rest for later.
If you want to support me financially, I have support tiers on my Gumroad, with options for 1, 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions. Gumroad~!
