Deception, Lies, and Deceit

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007


One would think that by now, the 7th Child would have been used to her father’s ways… For the most of her life, the 7th Child has been taught never to trust her father, and yet she must obey him without question if she wishes to live a peaceful and somewhat normal life…

But what if it would begin to take a turn for the worst? What if he was forcing her to marry someone from the neighboring kingdom just to be rid of her? Would that not be reason enough to fight back?

For the 7th Child, whom he has broken her spirit, it is no longer the case.

Her father keeps telling her that he wishes to change, he doesn’t want to d anything wrong, and yet he must always have his way, because everyone else is wrong and he is always right…

But it is rather painful when some of these traits become evident in the person she herself chooses to be with. Perhaps it is true what they say, that a child would marry the person that most resembles his or her parent.

What now, oh foolish child? You said once before that broken promises are something you cannot accept, and yet here you stand now, amidst broken promises. Will you not fight for what you believe to be right and true? Are you so afraid to be alone that you keep on believing both their words even if they are tearing you apart? Your father has no promises he keeps, and even he has broken several in a short week…

What could possibly be the end of all this?

The Ruler of Celestia, and King of the present Gaea, His name is Nakashima Taiki. No one dares defy him and his wisdom is unchallenged by both his subjects and his children.

Nothing much is known about the King. He chooses to live his own life in the shadows and therefore remains a stranger to his family. There is much argument as to whether or not he really loved his wife and Queen, but to this day he remains by his wife’s side.

He does not know about his 6th Child as actually being the 7th. He expects a lot from the 7th Child as he does with all of his children. Weakness is not an excuse nor is it an option to him. If you are not the best, then you are not worth his time. Unbeknownst to him, however, the 7th Child strives to have his approval, something he has never given to any of his children.
