    Jasper wrapped his arms around her waist as he drew her closer, returning her kiss happily. He rested his forehead against hers when she pulled away, savoring the moment before she kissed him again, returning her kiss as he drew her close, running his hands along her sides and up her back, caressing her. He frowned a little when she pulled away so suddenly, reaching over to tuck a strand of her hair behind her ear. "What's wrong, Emberly? Is everything alright?"
    Meredith nodded a little at his reassurances, pressing a kiss to his cheek before she changed into her nightgown and brushed her hair out. She moved into bed with him and curled into his arms, pressing another kiss to his cheek as she traced gentle patterns on his chest as she snuggled into him. "Hm. If you say so. I'm glad everything went well today."

    Emberly blushed as he asked what was wrong. "It's fine. My magic was just... it's the passion it's hardest to control." she said and sat up. What was she doing? She wasn't ready to get married, to give him her heart, this was cruel to him and no matter how much she wanted him she should let him go. "Jasper you should go." she said and stood the long dress sparkling in the night as her wings fluttered nervously. She bit her bottom lip and looked at Jasper again. She wanted him so badly to whisper her love to him but it wasn't fair because she didn't know how she would feel in the morning. Just then a knock came at the door. Jasper looked over then back over to Jasper wondering if he was expecting someone then she walked over to answer the door. A servant stood at the entrance. "A ball is being held tomorrow night both your presence and Prince Jasper are requested to join." she said. Emberly got the feeling it wasn't a request. "The queen organized the ball?" she asked and the servant looked nervous and Emberly's wings fluttered angrily. "Thank you." she said and gently closed the door struggling to not use her powers in her anger. "She's got something up her sleeve to try and humiliate me and to pull you away from me. She wondered if she even knew how to dance like the fae then it hit her. "Fae dances are done at least in part in the air." she said and looked up at Jasper as she sat on the edge of the bed. She wasn't able to fly yet.
    Leo grinned and kissed her head. "Okay tomorrow we will go see her in the morning okay?" he asked her. He didn't want this to drag out any longer. Meredith needed to see Emberly. They needed each other here. That connection would make them stronger because they would be able to be a united front from a different angle. Just then a knock came at the door. Leo frowned and stood walking over and answering the door. "A ball is being held tomorrow night and you and lady Meredith are both requested to join." Leo nodded and leaned in. "My mother has invited dignitaries from other Fae nations hasn't she?" he asked and the servant nodded. Leo dismissed the servant then turned to Meredith. "How are your dancing skills?" he asked her.

    Jasper frowned as she pulled away from him and told him to leave, wings dropping as he looked at her worriedly. "Did I do something wrong? Whatever it is, I can fix it, I swear.." he promised, reaching to take her hand, but then there was a knock at the door and she was moving to answer it. He frowned as the servant mentioned a ball being held the next night, scowling as he ran his fingers through his hair in frustration. His mother was playing tricks, and he couldn't let her win. He sighed as he looked at Emberly, nodding as he paced around the room. "Yes.. With my air magic I should be able to help you a bit, but I can't completely keep you in the air." He explained, trying to figure out what to do.
    Meredith frowned as she hears the knock, grabbing at Leo's arm to try to keep him in bed with her, but eventually let him go answer the door. She listened curiously as he spoke with the servant before returning to bed, pouting a little at his question as she held her hand out to get him to come back to bed. "We danced at the festival, remember? But other than that simple dance, I don't know anything... I doubt a human harvest dance is suitable for a Fae court."

    Emberly hated that he thought everything that was wrong was with him and he had to fix it when she knew it was her. She was the one that couldn't seemed to decide what she wanted. When she listened to him talk about helping to keep her in the air and she stood taking his hand. It meant a lot that he wanted to keep her in the air to support her in being a fae now. Emberly sighed and cupped his cheeks. "Tomorrow we will go see Artemis and see what magic she can create." she said having faith that whatever they came up with that she would at least be able to participate for a little while. "I do not think your mother will let me dance with only you all night anyways. I am sure she had some other plan other than humiliating me in front of whomever else she has decided to invite. Emberly caressed his cheeks not telling him she honestly believed his mother had invited a lot of the women that she had hoped Jaser would get with instead of Emberly. "But we need to rest." she said and caressed his cheek. She sighed and hugged him tightly. "I do not deserve you Jasper." she whispered then walked to the door and opened it for him standing beside it. "Get some sleep." she said hoping he would.
    Leo frowned. "Bloody hell." he sighed. "Tomorrow we will go talk with Jasper and Emberly and probably Artemis as well. We have to figure out how to at least get through this ball." he ran his hand through his hair. "She's never been a snake before but it seems with age my mother has become vindictive." he came back to the bed and caressed her cheek. "By chance have you had any momentary periods you have floated off the floor with your wings?" he asked her. Leo wanted to beat his mother at her own game. This was the rest of Meredith and Emberly's lives she was playing with here. "Don't you worry we will figure this out. And if nothing else then I will stand beside you the entire time and we will enjoy the ball." he said a few clever ideas already coming to mind.

    Jasper sighed and nodded as she caressed his cheeks, reaching up to tuck a stray strand of hair behind her ear as he looked at her. "You're right.. I'll send a note to Artemis tonight to let her know to begin preparing for our visit, that way she can have as much time as possible to prepare." He squeezed her hand before heading out the door. "Sleep well, Emberly." He murmured before heading to his room. He still felt bad about whatever he'd done to make her uncomfortable, but did his best to forget about it, as he was sure that she wouldn't want to talk about it. Once the message was sent to Artemis he prepared for bed, eating a quick dinner before falling asleep, knowing he'd need to be well rested for the next day.
    Meredith frowned as he spoke, curling into his arms once more as he came back to bed. She shook her head a little at his question. "No, I don't think so... Maybe once or twice while I was getting out of the tub, but nothing special." She frowned, suddenly feeling guilty, especially after he'd cursed when she said she didn't know how to dance. "I... I don't have to go, Leo.. I don't mind, either. I'd be happy having a night to myself in the library or something." She offered, knowing that she'd only embarrass him if she went. "It will probably be better if I don't go.. that way I don't embarrass you."

    Emberly sighed and went and showered dressing in a nightgown. She went through the night not sure how tomorrow was going to go. Once she was finished with everything she crawled into bed hugging the pillow Jasper had slept on the night before. She clung to it so confused why she felt his absence so strongly. Tomorrow she would have officially been a fae for a week. Emberly sighed and closed her eyes letting sleep finally take her. When Emberly did leep she dreamt of Jasper. Her need for him only growing more.
    Leo looked over at Meredith and knew he was scaring her and sighed. "No Meredith I am sorry." he came over to her and cupped her cheek. "You have to go it is to important for you to meet who will be there for you not to come. Likely these will be the people that will be at our wedding. "It is not your fault you do not yet know Fae culture and dance yet. This is my mother's doing. She is trying to ostracize you and Emberly for being so knew for having been human and not growing up as royalty. But you Meredith will never embarrass me for being yourself." He kissed her temple. "Your place is at my side as is my place to be at your side. But we must go." he said and smiled softly. "Dancing will be the only problem but there will be so much more there as well. Besides I have a couple tricks to play as well that will help us. He kissed her head sweetly. "Now if I have fixed my mistakes in making you feel any guilt you should sleep my love."

    Jasper didn't sleep very well, tossing and turning in bed. He couldn't seem to get Emberly off his mind, not only because he was worried about how things would go at the ball tomorrow. This was something more, but he couldn't place it. He knew that he cared deeply for Emberly, that he loved her, but this was a deeper feeling than that, although he had no idea where it came from, or why it seemed to bother him so much. He woke in the morning still feeling tired, and after dressing and sending for breakfast he headed to Emberly's room, knocking on her door lightly. "Emberly? Are you awake. We need to eat breakfast and then go see Artemis before it gets to be too late in the day."
    Meredith nodded a little at his reassurances and curled into his arms, resting her hands over his as she turned her head to kiss the insides of his palms. She happily kissed him back before curling into his arms with a tired sigh, nodding a bit as she rested her head against his chest. "I know that you're right, but I still worry... But you're right, we should got to sleep. You'll have to teach me how to dance in the morning." She smiled a little, pressing a kiss to his chest right over his mark before settling in to drift off to sleep.

    Emberly was just coming out of the bathroom in her towel when she saw Jasper. She squeaked and pulled the towel tighter. "Jasper." she half giggled her wings fluttering nervously. She slipped behind the changing board. "W-Will you hand me my dress. Off the bed?" she she said shyly. Emberly bit her bottom lip and pressed a hand to her heart. Why was it hammering so hard? Why was it all she could think about was him coming behind that changing board and removing to towel his lips tracing the tops of her breasts? She took the dress that was handed to her and quickly dressed. She adjusted the straps around her wings then slipped out and turned to Jasper pulling her hair to the side. "Good morning." she said and stepped forward and kissed his cheek. Her wings glowed with the blush that was still on her cheeks. There was another knock and she went over answering the door. Breakfast was brought in and she looked at Jasper across the room. Once the servants left she walked over to the table and sat down looking at him. "How did you sleep?" she asked. He looked tired still.
    Leo woke in the morning and showered then dressed. He had breakfast brought in. He was sure that Emberly and Jasper would be going to Artemis as well this morning. He went over and gently woke up Meredith. "My love it's time to get up, we are going to have a long day." He whispered and brushed his lips over her forehead. He smiled and then let her get up slowly. "I figured once you are dressed and finish eating we will go and meet up with Artemis." He said and grinned. "Emberly and Jasper will be there at some point I am sure." he said wondering if the room could hold all of them or if they were going to drive Artemis crazy with all of them in her space.

    Jasper smiled a bit as he saw her step out of the bathroom, averting his eyes to give her some privacy, although as she stepped behind the changing screen and asked him to bring her dress he found himself trying to get another look at her. He passed the dress to her and moved to the balcony to give her privacy, although he kept thinking about the glimpse he'd gotten of her in just her towel, which made his heart hammer. There was something clearly going on with them, but he had no idea what. He turned back to her and smiled when she came out, taking his seat at the table for breakfast. "Good morning. I got as much sleep as I could, I think I was worrying too much about today.' he shrugged as he ate. In truth, he'd been thinking about her all night, but she didn't need to know that. "How about you?"
    Meredith yawned tiredly as she woke, nodding as she slipped out of bed a d got dressed, picking a simple dress similar to one of the ones she would have worn back in the human village. She figured if she had to learn how to dance, she might as well learn in something she couldn't accidentally ruin. "Are you sure we shouldnt wait until later to go see her? If Emberly and your brother are going too? I wouldn't want to crowd her.." she frowned a little as she sat to eat, although she was too nervous about later this evening so she didn't eat much.

    Emberly sat and reached out taking his hand as he talked about being nervous about today. "It's going to be okay Jasper." she said softly the feel of his hand sparking something in her gut. She squeezed his hand then let go slowly. She bit her lip and looked down picking something up with her fork and took the bite just sto stop herself from gnawing as her lips. He asked how she had slept and she shrugged. "It's not the same without you here." she admitted and blushed her wings fluttering nervously. "After breakfast we are going to see Artemis?" she asked quickly changing the subject. Emberly hoped that Artemis would have an answer so that they could enjoy the rest of their evening. Emberly did love dancing after all.
    Leo shook his head. "No Artemis would much rather be crowded than have to repeat herself." he smiled and patted her hand. "I know you are nervous about seeing Emberly again but this is important and she will probably be relieved to see you too. At least she will know she id not a lone in this struggle." he said and kissed her cheek. He sat with her eating as well noticing how she nervously picked at the food and he would have to make sure she got lunch as well but they would be practicing different dances here soon he was sure she would be more hungry for lunch after so much activity. Leo stood as they finished breakfast. "Come on, before we go to Artemis's I need to make a stop to make sure something gets done." he said.

    Jasper nodded, pressing a kiss to the back of her hand while he held it, although he had to admit, as much as he hated when she pulled her hand away, he realized that he wouldn't be able to focus if he kept holding it. He nodded in understanding when she said that she felt better with him there, offering her a little smile, especially as he saw her blush and her wings flutter. "That's understandable." He chuckled, nodding as he ate. "Yes, we'll be seeing Artemis after we finish eating. Leo will likely be there with Meredith as well, so you'll both be able to get the chance to talk to one another while Artemis helps us prepare for the ball tonight." Jasper explained.
    Meredith nodded as Leo explained everything, doing her best to eat a bit more of her breakfast after she saw how worried he looked at her not eating, but she truly wasn't hungry enough at the moment to eat much. She nodded when he suggested that they head out, standing and smoothing out her dress, braiding her hair quickly before taking his hand and giving it a little squeeze. "Alright. Where are we going?" She asked curiously.

    Emberly nodded as she listened to Jasper. "I have been meaning to go see her but it's been busy with everything..." she said feeling bad knowing Meredith probably thought she was avoiding her. Emberly sighed and focused back on her food. After a while she finished and sat back knowing it was time to get on with the day. "Alright let's do this." she said as Jasper finished eating as well. Emberly stood and turned to Jasper as he came to her. She turned into his arms and held onto him her head pressing into his chest as she looked down at the ground. She was nervous for today but more, she was nervous about what was going on with her emotions with Jasper. How could be be terrified they were going to fast and not getting to know each other properly and yet want to jump his bones at the same time?
    Leo smiled as they started to head out. "I have a plan but it will only work if I can get the masks made and delivered to everyone in time." he said and headed down to the servant quarters. He stopped and knocked at a door. A stunning fae with dark hair and green eyes that matched her green wings answered the door "Prince Leo." her eyes sparkled with delight but then fell seeing his hand in Meredith's and she frowned at the girl before looking back at Leo. "How can I help you your majesty?" she asked him. Leo grinned. "Twix I need to make a change to the invitations for the ball tonight." he said and she tilted her head. "I need to you organize to have a mask delivered to every door, we're going to make it a masquerade ball." He said and she grinned and clapped her hands. "Oh we haven't had one of those in centuries." she nodded. "Okay I will get started." she said and Leo nodded taking Meredith back through the halls and smiled. "Now we will have more privacy during the ball." he said smiling at her.

    Jasper nodded and stood when she was ready, heading to the door with her. He held her in his arms for a moment when she moved into him, leaning down to press a loving kiss to her lips before reluctantly releasing her. All he wanted was to drag her back into the room and ravage her on the breakfast table, but he knew that that wouldn't go over well. He'd have to ask Artemis for something to help him control his emotions better, a bit worried about why they were both so suddenly desperate for one another. Once at Artemis'door he knocked politely before heading in when she called them, thanking her for seeing them and suggesting they wait until his brother and Meredith arrived.
    Meredith was happy following him through the halls, and was curious what he was up to, but any happiness disappeared as soon as Twix answered the door, noting not only how beautiful she was, but how she acted toward both Leo and her. It was obvious Twix had a thing for Leo, and maybe at some point they'd been an item. The thought upset her, as as the two of them spoke she released Leo's hand to move down the hall a little ways, pretending to be curious about something she'd seen out the window, but really just wanting to not have to look at Twix so obviously trying to flirt with Leo. Meredith nodded at Leo's explanation when he returned to her side, linking her arm through his as he led her to wherever Artemis worked. "..She cares for you, you know."

    Emberly sat on a stool holding the rock that Artemis put in her hand that gauged her powers. She let her other hand go up and drift over her necklace as she looked at Jasper her wings fluttering slightly as Artemis and Jasper talked about something over on the other side of the room. When a knock came at the door she stood and went to let Leo and Meredith in, assuming it was them. Whens she opened the door to see Leo she smiled softly at him but he seemed distracted. He offered her a small smile in return then kissed her cheek in greeting. Emberly looked at Meredith as she came into view taking in her wings and hers fluttered nervously. She stepped back letting her come into the room. "Meredith." she said softly surprised by how much delight and longing ached in her chest at the sight of her friend. Emberly closed the door behind Meredith then looked her over. "You look well." she said and smiled softly.
    Leo was surprised when Meredith said Twix liked him. "Her?" he looked down at Meredith worried about her as she looked up at him. He kissed her head. "She's not my type." he said and smiled at Meredith, besides I am in love with the most stunning fae. She wouldn't even be in comparison." he smiled and kissed Meredith's head. "Don't be worried my love, you are the only ones I have eyes for and my heart and body belong to you." he said happy she was there with him as he put his hand over hers leading her to Artemis's room. When they arrived he knocked at the door kissing Emberly's cheek, she was after all going to be his sister in law. When he walked in he turned to see Meredith and Emberly's interaction. He noticed the magic ball in Emberly's hand wondering if he should get Meredith tested but was afraid to in case she never did get magic.

    Meredith blushed and smiled a bit as Leo reassured her that she had nothing to worry about, nodding softly as she followed him down the hall. She believed him, of course, but she couldn't help but feel nervous that other women were clearly interested in her bond, especially when they so clearly flirted with him in front of her. She tried to push the thought from her mind as they finally arrived at Artemis' room, blinking in surprise when she saw Emberly open the door. She watched Leo kiss her cheek in greeting before heading further into the room to speak with Artemis and his brother, leaving her alone with Emberly. She blinked a little as Emberly greeted her, nodding shyly as she finally stepped into the room, smoothing out her dress self consciously. Of course Emberly had worn something nice, whereas she looked like a servant, which was what she might as well be. "Hello, Emberly.. Nice to see you." She murmured soflty before hurrying to Leo's side. It wasn't that she didn't want to talk to her, she just felt so awful looking at her. They were in the same situation, but Emberly was so much better than her. She was going to marry the future king, her wings were so much more beautiful than hers, she dressed like a princess, and she'd possessed magic that was beautiful and dangerous. While she was none of those things, only a disappointment.

    Jasper was speaking with Artemis about possible causes for his and Emberly's shift in mood when Leo and Meredith arrived, deciding to pause his conversation with Artemis for now so they could focus on helping Emberly and Meredith. "Hello, Leo. I'm sure you're here for the same reason we are. Might as well get down to business so we can leave Artemis alone."

    Emberly blinked and frowned biting her bottom lip. she looked down at her cloths and then tried to still her beating wings before she moved over to Jasper's side. She ran her hand through his arm holding onto it surprised with how much she needed the contact but also how it gave her a jolt of emotions and electricity she didn't think would come with all the other emotions bubbling up. That had not been the reunion she had been expecting with Meredith and she was really unsettled. Emberly looked up at Jasper as he spoke to his brother then looked at Artemis who was still stirring something. Artemis grinned and nodded to Jasper. "Thanks for the warning last night Jasper it gave me some time to think it over and start on a few potions." she said and pointed to the one surrounding them. "With Jasper's help Emberly wont have to much trouble as long as he is her only dancing partner. I have worked up a potion to boost your wind power for the evening Leo. But I am having a bit of a harder time thinking about how to create flight upon command and take it off the same. With the nobles coming I know it is important each girl is able to dance on their own as well."

    Leo nodded. "This is true but I have instructed that the servants pass around masks. Mom will not be expecting a masquerade. It will help give the girls some privacy so they are not as stipulated with each move they made." he said and kissed Meredith's head. "What ideas do you have for the girls but are debating on Artemis?" he asked her and she hummed. "Well the first is to make them float the entire night after the opening speech but dancing constantly will be tiring not to mention the socializing is normally done on the ground. Taking multiple potions and counter potions does not seem particularly safe either." She said and Leo nodded.

    Jasper's arm snaked around Emberly's waist as she came to stand beside him, fingers gently brushing over her side soothingly, able to tell something was off, although he wasn't going to ask her about it now. But he'd keep her close so she knew that he was there and worried about her, and after they'd gone back to their room he could ask her about what was bothering her in private.

    Meredith frowned as she listened to Artemis speak, realizing how much trouble it was for her to go to to actually pull this off. "I don't have to go, Leo... Really, I don't mind, especially if it'd be easier for everyone if I stayed behind. I can just say I'm feeling unwell." She offered soflty, looking up at him. Emberly must already be able to fly a bit if Artemis didn't sound worried about helping her fly as much, and it only made her feel worse about being Leo's bond. Yes, they were each other's Infinitum, she loved him with all her heart, but she felt like she'd done nothing but let him down this entire time, and she knew if she went to this ball she'd only make a fool of herself and him in front of every important person he knew. So maybe it was best if she just didn't go. "My wings still feel a bit sore anyway, and I can't even dance normally... It'd be a disaster if I were there."

    Jasper frowned at Meredith's words, concerned for his brothers bond. She clearly held little regard for herself, and was much too hard on herself, but if it were true, and she couldn't even dance...

    Leo shook his head. "No Meredith I am not going to let you not go. My mother will not win. No matter how hard it is we will figure it out besides this isn't about flying, Emberly can't fly either." he said and looked to her. She nodded but didn't look at Meredith. He guessed that meeting hadn't gone well. He pulled Meredith into him and caressed her cheek looking into her eyes. "I need you tonight and we will figure it out." he said hoping she would agree to help figure it out. "And you are a good dancer you just need to learn a few of our dances." he said. "Besides you have many strengths that will work well tonight. The point of the ball is to make royal alliances and you have already made many friends at court so this will be the same." he turned to Artemis. "What about if we enchant a piece of jewelry that she can take on and off?" he asked and Artemis's eyes widened.

    "Oh..." she turned to her books doing some flipping and muttering to herself. "Yes!" she exclaimed and looked back at the boys. "Bring me a stone." she said and grabbed some chains and set to work. "Go, out all of you, come back with the stone." she said and shooed them all out of her room. When the door closed behind them they all looked at eachother.

    Emberly bit her lip and looked at Meredith one more time her eyes pleading and searching before she turned away with Jasper back towards their room. "You have a stone in mind?" she asked as they walked. She didn't know what else to say. She didn't want to talk about Meredith. She didn't want to talk about how nervous she was to have to socialize with other Fae. She after all was always herself, not some puppet that would be able to turn the charm on or off. She didn't think now was the time to talk about if she would make a good queen or not. She didn't want to go into all that right now as it bombarded her mind with doubt.

    Meredith frowned a bit as Leo spoke but nodded at his words, not wanting to fight about it in front of so many people. Especially not Emberly. The last thing she wanted was for Emberly to know she felt lesser, although she wouldn't be surprised if the other girl already knew and thought that about her too. She settled into Leo's side when he pulled her close and began to speak with Artemis about enchanting something, happily following him out of her study once they were dismissed. She kept her head down as they stood in the hall for a moment, the two brothers wishing each other luck before parting, each heading their separate ways.

    Jasper kept Emberly tucked under his arms, able to tell she wasn't feeling great. He hummed in thought when she asked about the stone, shaking his head. "Perhaps something similar to the necklace you already have." He suggested, pressing a gentle kiss to her forehead. "I know you probably don't want to talk about it.. But I can't help but notice that your reunion with Meredith didn't go well."

    Leo turned with Meredith in his arms. He started to head back to their room. "What's going on Meredith?" he asked her as he walked with her back to their room so he could get a stone for Artemis. He could tell she was really upset. He thought the meeting with Emberly would have gone better. She had seemed to be wanting to connect with Meredith so he was confused why she was pushing her away, or it seemed like that from the outside.
    Emberly walked with him thankful she was in his arms. They walked and he talked about a matching stone and she smiled softly. It was sweet of him to think of something to match her necklace. She leaned into him as he kissed her head. He then brought up Meredith and she frowned. Emberly shrugged and looked away. "You're right I don't want to talk about it. I don't know what there is to say anyways." she said and stepped out of his grasp. "I think I know which way to your room from here." she said proud of herself for remembering.
