The Witch Sisters
The conquering of the Ottoman Imperium was easy for Malantha’s husband known only as the Shahanshah, but to her was known as her beloved king and master. She knew his name that only a few close to him would ever know for she was the one that gave it to him the very night that he claimed her as his own. Due to the conquering and the dethroning of her father as Sultan, a new way of handling things would take place. Malantha was use to the dark magic that her beloved had around him, yet the realm did not nor would understand what the new rulers were all about. Those who were left alive would have to get used to the way the Shahanshah and his queen wanted the realm to do. Magic would become a big part of the royal family having only three of the children of Suleiman left alive all being females. Two of the sisters were bound to the Shahanshah, Malantha and Hatice would bare his children so the next generation would continue to conquer more and more as their father wanted more lands under his rule. Melaina, Malantha’s twin was given to the Death Knight of the realm as his wife and possession. Hatice and Melaina had no choice in the matter of who they were bound to and force to bare children to. Malantha had a deal with her beloved king and master and exchange her twin once she was returned to the world of the living would be given by force to the Death Knight rather Melaina liked it or not.
This new rule meant that Malantha had no reason to fear about being different or drawn the dark world that her beloved came from, in fact, she was encourage to find out more. Now that she carried not one of his children but two little ones inside her womb, Malantha knew that she had no other choice than gather around her those who knew magic rather it was light or dark. However, Malantha was tainted and self-taught through the many nights of her beloved coming to her for centuries. Yet there was two new females that had entered into the realm of which Malantha knew little about other than they were tied to her new step son Diablo. Being a new mother not just of those inside her womb but to her step son, Malantha wanted to make the two sisters feel welcome in the new Imperium.
She did not care what her father thought nor what her mother thought of her having those who they were consider evil around her or the unborn lives. To Malantha now her father and mother were nothing more than servants after her husband took over, yet to her surprise her father felt some relief after all the centuries of the Sultan having to carry the burden of what Osman did to her husband so long ago. Rather what she was going to do next was just to spite the traditions and old rule, Malantha quickly went to work to summon the two sisters knowns as the White Witch and Dark Witch. First she wrote the one known as the Dark Witch a simple summon to her inner court. Taking her quill in her left hand she dipped it into red ink and began writing:
“Dear Calia Calder,
I wish to meet you hearing that you have some ties to my step son Diablo. Do no fear, I am not here to make your life a living hell simply seeing what you are all about. I also wish to welcome you to the Imperium personally. I hear you are known as the Dark Witch and also wish to see how dark you truly are, furthermore, seeing your sister is known as the White Witch to see how far she can handle true darkness. My husband and I are shifting things within the realm into the shadows and ancient ways of the way things are done. It is my hope and wish that you come and help in this.
Shahmam Malantha Teboria.”
Once she sealed it with her seal and turned to a group of shadows that stood behind her always feeling their presence, the red-haired former princess ordered them to deliver the letter to the one known as the Dark Witch with respect or she not her husband would deal with them. When the shadows took from her pale soft left hand and disappeared, the Pearl eyes queen turned back to another piece of parchment paper laying upon her desk. She took the quill tightly within her hand and dipped it into the red ink and quickly went to write the next letter.
“ Dear Bella Calder,
I hear you are related to the one known as the Dark Witch and have some connection to my step son Diablo. I wish to welcome you to the new realm of The Imperium and wish to see what you are really about. Do you care to take me up on this offer? It would be a great honor and pleasure to meet you. I am not here sending this invitation to be the nosey step mother simply a woman wanting to see what the magical realm has to offer.
Shahmam Malantha Teboria”
Again she sealed the letter with her seal, grabbed hold the group of shadows slithering around her neck, and threw them into the air. Instantly they formed a form of a man and bowed on their knees. “ Take this to the White Witch and be respectful yet see what she is about in personality then come back.” Malantha said with a thick Turkish accent, holding with her left hand the letter and with her right hand placed gently upon her belly. Malantha knew she had little time before the trial would be done where she would either die or be able to carry the children to term being reborn not simply a human young woman but a new creature. It was what her husband wanted and it was her duty to make sure her children came into the world. Furthermore, she knew that perhaps by having two witches close by would be of great use to her as well as the realm. The shadows that formally were a snake took from her left hand gently the letter and disappeared quickly, once she was alone Malantha sat back down upon the chair behind her desk to wait for the unknown.
