Sanguine After Story - Short Sequel - Part 7
Dear Readers, I feel I must warn you. Remember how I said that I added quite a bit of non-erotica to the story, well because of that, this chapter is sex free. I still feel it's worth reading because it sets up what is to come, so please enjoy :-D
three of my lovers were overflowing with happiness! I was happy just
watching them bounce in excitement. If I didn't know better, I would
have thought that someone had granted each of them their greatest
they were all watching intently as a huge and ornate carriage grew
ever closer. It seemed to take forever, but eventually, it rolled to
a stop in front of us. A footman hastily scrambled to open the door.

know!” They all wailed in unison, each blurting out things like:
“I'm the size of a house!” Or: “I just keep getting bigger!”
four of them devolved into a strange laughter that was an equal
amount of crying. Baffled, I focused on helping my sisters out of the
carriage. They both watched our mother and her wards with an
expression of aww!
This made me wonder if there was something unique to girls that made
this situation interesting rather than awkward.
my relief, my father finally exited the carriage and pounded on my
back proudly. “I missed you, son, and am glad to see you're doing

last. I had so

mother and my lovers were once more babbling rapidly and at the same
time, but apparently this was another girl thing, because my sisters
were also babbling along just as fast. I had a hard time following
the conversation and scrunched up my face in concentration. As I
gathered, they were talking about the babies, about Sandra's wedding,
about everyone's feelings...
father laughed at the expression on my face. “Come on, son. We're
probably better off waiting until they've caught each other up on all
the little details of the past few months. Let's go grab a bite to

rudely neglected to notice or greet Prince Collin. “Welcome to my
Castle, my Prince,” I stated with a respectful bow.

arms with mine. “I never did get to see this place properly, so
please, give me a tour!”
you dare let them out of your sight!” My mother stopped her
conversation abruptly to shout a command to my father.

Collin groaned in disappointment. “But I promised to behave, my
while I believe you meant your promise when you made it, I am certain
that you will forget it if no one is around to remind you!” Mom
looked at Prince Collin in surprise, then decided to give into the
devious imp sitting on my shoulder, whispering in my ear. “Really?
Perhaps I should show you something Glacèe once forced a prisoner to

if I am there to watch!”
you talking about that thing?” Ardent demanded intensely. “I want
to see that!”
Collin looked like his deepest wish had just come true. “By all
means, I'd be fascinated to see anything you cared to show me,” he
stated with a grin.
my mom growled menacingly.
burst out laughing. “Don't worry mom, I'll behave too.”
this thing you are talking about,” Lily wondered with interest.
“And can I see it too?”
Everyone but Sandra and Lily blurted out. By the look on my older
sister's face, she had a vague idea what I might be talking about,
but was confused by the prospect.
looked positively murderous. “Why do I never get to do anything?!”
pulled free from Collin's grasp and then gathered Lily in a squeezing
hug. “Don't worry, Lil. I'm just being silly. I didn't mean
anything by it.”

one over on her.

to bring Goliath to visit our grandparents!”

Lily raced her dog across the Castle grounds.

back to Prince Collin, I allowed him to link arms with me once more.
“So... what is this intriguing thing you were talking about?”
tell you about it later, maybe,” I promised evasively, not wanting
to upset my mother again.
and the girls wandered off to do whatever they wanted – the nanny
and baby Prince following them – while I led Collin and my dad to
the family dining room. Quick-witted maids had refreshments waiting
for us. I filled a plate for Collin, but wasn't hungry enough to grab
anything for myself.
why in the world did Sandra want to have her wedding here?”
I asked my dad.
smiled at me in commiseration. “She wanted to have it here to
emphasize the point that she is not
a royal Princess. That she's actually a simple girl from Clan Blood
who happened to get really lucky. I think she wants to give her groom
a chance to change his mind and run off screaming in terror before
the big day!”
laughed, nodding in agreement. “I do believe you are right!”
this man she's planning to marry?” I wondered curiously.
James of Clan Badger,” dad replied, but a shrug let me know that he
could say much beyond that because he didn't know anything more.
Prince Collin did. “Lord James is the sole heir to Clan Badger –
his father having died in an accident when he was a baby. The Clan is
not very prosperous. Oh they do well enough, and are well respected
among their peers, but their wealth has more to do with their fertile
grasslands than any material possessions.”
father stroked his chin in thought. “Hmm... Please tell me that the
young Lord isn't trying to marry a wealthy heiress...”
Collin shook his head. “I really don't think so. I've had a chance
to meet with him in private – not like that, I assure you!” He
added at a glare from my father. “In any case, I think he is well
suited to darling Sandra. As much as he wanted a properly bred Lady,
he far prefers a bride who knows how to manage land. Didn't you see
the way his eyes lit up when she talked about your orchard?”
nodded in agreement. “Yes, I did notice that.”
made a gesture that plainly stated: you see? “What I find the most
interesting is that Lord James was clearly the best suitor from
almost the very first day, and that even Lily
saw it, but dear Sandra seemed oblivious to this until just
think she was simply confused by that weasel from Clan Lightstone!”
Dad observed with a derisive snort.
Collin sighed dreamily. “Auric...” He stared off into space for a
moment before shaking free of his reverie. “Don't be so hard on
him. He has a pure and loving heart...”
apparently the ability to charm the dress off just about anyone!”
Dad added, obviously disliking the idea.
pants!” Prince Collin added with a grin
your wife know how you talk about him?” Dad wondered dryly.
could she not?!” Prince Collin blurted out. “I talked with her
about him for days after I first saw him!”
dad remarked with a hint of disapproval, but otherwise said nothing.
I began, curious about something. “You're attracted to men?”
Collin grinned at me in a way that left very little to the
imagination regarding what he thought of me.
see...” I murmured, looking into my mug of tea with a faint smile.
my dad growled softly. “This is your mother's husband. No matter
how...” he pursed his lips as he searched for a word. “Curious,”
he settled on hesitantly. “You might be; such a thing would be

chuckled wryly. “I'm sure I do lots of things that may be
considered just wrong, but don't worry, dad, I'm not really all that
Collin muttered in profound disappointment, not caring who heard him.
chuckled again. Some perverse imp made me want to tease him.
“Besides, I know things that would surely cause the poor Prince's
heart to fail. I wouldn't dream
of committing such treasonous acts!”
rolled his eyes and shook his head at me. “You've been spending far
too much time around your lovers...”
looked devastated. “You simply cannot
make such intriguing statements, and then not
provide me with proof!”
my Prince,” I murmured contritely in response to the look on my
father's face. “I shouldn't tease you like that.”
sighed, disappointed all over again. He actually looked a tiny bit
cute as he pouted in dejection. I was tempted to laugh, but
maintained a serious expression so that I didn't ruin my apology.
Collin muttered even as my father sighed in relief.
the subject, I decided to ask all my pressing questions. “So... is
there anything I should know about babies before they're born?”
to have a neutral topic to discuss, my father launched into tales
from my infancy. I listened to him for hours, glad to have my father
back. Gods I've missed him!
night, I decided to avoid the hopeful looks Collin kept casting my
way by going to bed early. Mom and my lovers were still so busy
talking about life and everything under the sun that they simply
wished me goodnight. Lily was bored by the conversation too since she
grabbed my excuse and made it her own.

antics in mind when I finally am

understood how my dad must have felt when he was talking to me about
my lovers. He must have thought I was so young...

surprised me by slipping through the door just before I shut it. She
looked weird, and gave me a frantic hug.

able to talk about it with anyone!”

pretty sure that it couldn't be too
she began but then nothing else came out. She sighed, took a deep
breath, and then tried again. “I...” With a groan, she pulled on
her hair and walked away from me.
I pressed, dying of curiosity now.
it's like this; mom told me not to be with someone that was just
using me, and I totally agreed with her. I did! Oh Gods, I swear I
did!” Sandra wailed, sort of crying, but only a tiny bit.

out loud to my
Sandra gasped out, and then covered her mouth guiltily.
I roared angrily. “Against your will?!”
She replied frantically. “I was willing, I promise.” She sighed,
feeling a bit better now that she'd confessed the big bad secret.
“What happened was that I found out that he likes to play around
and I shouted at him and slapped him in the face and then stomped
then changed your mind?” I wondered since she had already confessed
to being willing.
sort of,” Sandra stated with a wince. “I actually put him out of
my mind for weeks. I got to know Lord James and realized that he
would make a good husband. He is a perfect gentleman, however, I kept
dwelling on something mom said. She said that girls should be allowed
to take lovers before they got married too –”
said that?!” I blurted out incredulously.
than argue with me, Sandra simply rolled her eyes and continued her
explanation. “Because there's no way to know if a man might be
abusive unless a girl has something to compare it to. So, I told Lord
James that I wasn't sure he'd make a good husband. That I was scared
that he would hurt me, and he promised that he wouldn't. I knew
he was telling the truth, but I acted like I didn't...”
I murmured, more than a little confused. “So, what you're saying is
that you coerced your future husband into making love to you?”
yes,” Sandra admitted. She smiled for the first time since entering
my room. “It was nice, a little painful, but I had already been
told that's normal. I liked it...”
for you...?” I remarked uncertainly.
Sandra nodded in agreement, and then sighed. “But that's
when I did the bad thing!”
took me a moment to work this out, but then it hit me. “Oh!”
oh...” Sandra agreed. Finally feeling comfortable, she flung
herself into a chair and gave me the candid details. “After I knew
what loving, mutually respectful sex was like, I just had
to know what it would be like to have sex with someone I knew
was just using me! I couldn't think
about anything else!”
sat down in a chair across from her. I couldn't blame her, I'd felt
something a lot like that when I first started being with Glacèe.
With a commiserating smile, I tried to let her know that I wasn't
I pressed, sensing there was more.
by all the Gods in the universe!” Sandra blurted out emotionally.
“I could never have imagined
anything like that! It was... powerful! And... amazing! And...” She
faltered, unable to come up with a better description.
I asked, smirking in amusement.
Sandra cried out in agreement.
I paused to let her finish whatever thought was making her look so
dreamy. “Are you sure
you want to get married to this Lord James fellow?”
sighed, her dreamy expression changing to one of confidence. “Yes.
I think I love him. I can see myself growing old with him, and I

had no idea what to say, because I didn't know her betrothed, and
what she was afraid of was a real possibility. Some men have been
known to murder their wives for such an offense. Marriage was
absolute in our Kingdom, and in olden times, the punishment for
female infidelity was

stroked her hair and made sounds of comfort.

murmured, feeling certain that I was right.

She lay her head on my shoulder once more, and simply remained in my

Long before I became a Lord, Sandra was the one I talked to at night.
She was the one who knew all my boyhood secrets, just as I know all

for the record, I don't really think you did such a bad thing,” I
informed her. “And mom might be right, girls probably should
be allowed lovers before they get married. I guess I never really
thought about it before.”

have been. We don't really think about them until something changes.”
nodded in agreement. “Like growing up.”

smiled at me, kissed my cheek, and then pulled out of my embrace.
“Nothing at all, I just needed to talk to my big brother.”
smiled at her in return. “Anytime!”
Mom murmured suspiciously, but then decided to let the matter drop.
She gestured to Sandra. “Come, my love, let's get you ready for

chuckled in amusement.

room. My lovers rounded on me with devious grins, and I knew that one
or all of them was suddenly in the mood to have their way with me. I
chuckled softly in anticipation.
week before Sandra's wedding was set to take place, her groom and his
family arrived. This was a big event that had cost Clan Blood a lot
of money. Not only was everyone under our jurisdiction invited, but
Clan Badger had invited everyone they thought necessary and
the King had invited all of the Lords and Ladies in the Kingdom. This
meant that my castle was soon to be overrun with guests, most of whom
would have to camp in a nearby field.

I thought she was going to vomit! “Oh Gods, please let him
understand,” she muttered so softly that only I could hear her.
sure everything will be fine,” I murmured encouragingly in her ear.
of Clan Badger had to camp – the first of many guests to stake a
claim in the field – but Lord James was given a room in the castle.
My mother – no longer able to stay in the Chamber I had taken over,
decided to stay in Sang-Soif's bedroom. Sandra, who had previously
shared a room with our sister Lily, stayed in Ardent's bedroom, and
Glacèe's bedroom had been dedicated to store all the wedding
clothes. It was going to be the room they readied themselves in the
morning of the wedding.
looked almost miserable by the end of the day, so I really couldn't
blame her for deciding to go to bed early. Lord James seemed like a
likeable fellow, and I felt bad that he seemed mystified as to what
the problem was. Even though he was already 21, he came to me for
advice. I led him to my study for a bit of privacy.

think it over for a few days, but when she finally accepted, she
seemed... happy...” he sighed in frustration. “But now she looks
miserable, and I have no idea why!”
groaned because I knew why but I couldn't tell him because it was not
my secret to tell. “You'll have to ask her that, but I can
tell you that she's worried you won't want to marry her.”
wouldn't I?!” James burst out incredulously. “She's so wonderful
and smart and...”
could tell that he could easily have gone on and on, but was trying
to restrain himself for my sake. I smiled, deciding that I liked him
and that he might just be perfect for my sister after all. Before I
could think of anything to say, there was a soft knock on the door.
I inquired, a bit frustrated that I had come in here for a private
talk, but was being interrupted anyway.

in a sensual way that set my blood on fire! I grinned at them.
Sang-Soif purred, stroking my face with her hand.

something special planned to do before our bath, and we wouldn't want
it to get cold...”

Ardent promised with a luscious smile.

our room soon, I am certain that Glacèe will coming looking for you

grin, and then sighed.

lovers were simply trying to entice me by promising something fun,
but I know better,” I replied with a smirk. “The three of them

Lord James remarked, biting his lip as he thought very carefully
about all possible meanings of the words lovers and all three of

discovered her betrothed sitting with me.

to kill, maim, or harm you in any way until after my wedding! They

direction of the door.

right. Their special plans for me included rubbing their backs and
helping them bathe. I didn't mind in the slightest!
next morning, I left my lovers – even Ardent – sleeping in bed.
To my surprise, they had each wanted to take a turn before falling a
sleep, so I was starving! Making my way towards the small family
dining room, I ran into my parents and Prince Collin in the hallway.

have a sibling to talk to. I've only ever had my mom...”
held out my hand to him, impressed that he hadn't gotten angry and
dumped my sister. “And now, you have me.”
suppose I do,” James admitted with a pleased smile. He shook my
hand and thumped me on the back.
rest of the week passed in a blur, with people flooding into the
castle from across the Kingdom. The day of the wedding dawned gloomy
and wet, but cleared up into a beautifully sunny day. Sandra looked
stunning in her wedding gown, and James wore an expression that he
was the luckiest man on the planet! Seeing them actually made me sad,
and I stared longingly at Sang-Soif. She caught my look and shook her
head slowly. I sighed but didn't press the matter.
