Alone on the throne

If someone had told Terridus 100 years ago he'd be sitting on the throne of Amber, he would have laughed.
If someone had told Terridus 50 years ago that his father would be so ok with turning the title over to Renee, he would have argued with them.
If someone had told Terridus anything about the eagle ever, maybe he would be able to help...

All the family was keeping something from him when he had been nothing but honest with them... At least his brother had asked for forgiveness. He didn't want to, but he needed to, he was his brother... It what family did, or at least what family should do. Terridus was prince, and now acting king, He had to lead by example. He was sickened by how open many members of the family were about trying each other poorly. Heck, Morrigan flat out said she would kill him if it benefitted her and if Bridgette was subverted, she too was a sane, overtly dangerous member of the family.

There were some members of the family that didn't seem so vicious. Cullen was more a danger to himself than anyone in the family, Terridus was surprised the man hadn't just killed himself yet. Astrid seemed pleasant on most days. Winter and Serpentis Seemed nice enough. Terridus had high hopes for Annalee, hoping the 'new cousin' would be clean of the petty rivalries and hard feelings that the other cousins had, only to find out that she was even more of a lair than all the others cousins as she wasn't even an Amberite.

As Terridus sat on the throne he rubbed his chin and asked himself what his father or Oberon thought when they sat up here. Sitting up here while everyone looked up and either hated him for being there and wanted to unseat him, or ignored him and wanted nothing to do with him. He wondered how most of the family felt about him. It was a sickening feeling hoping for uninterested ignoring, instead of spiteful anger. Oh how grand it was to be king...
