Glory of Love

It was the proverbial fight of good versus evil. Everybody saw it coming. Ever since the self-installed Prime Minister Fran Hurgeb announced martial law and ordered for cleansing, eradicating the half-blooded Doans, Richard and Madelaine knew that this called for another challenge. It would be an adventure where they would fight with all their might to defend human rights that has been abused by the evil PM. It would be a fight to take back the kingdom from Hurgeb. It would be a fight that would test their relationship as well.


They were members of the nobility. Richard was the crown prince of the realm, while Madelaine was a duchess and member of the queen’s court.

“I don’t want to discuss this with you right now, JAY. Tatay mo ‘yun. Alam ko naman na hindi mo ako sasamahan na dumalaw doon, kaya gagawin ko na ito ngayon bago man lang ako manganak!” His stubborn wife replied on the other line. Continue reading “Fragment”

The Last Falcon

Some people thought that she did not deserve to rule the queendom because she was a woman. The old folks’ opinions on political issues were irrelevant to her. Madelaine, the first queen of the realm would use all her sovereign powers to eliminate everyone who comes her way. She would pay no heed to anyone.
