It was bittersweet. Moving into a new home, with a fresh start after your divorce. Your two kids were older- 10 and 13, so they were taking it pretty hard. They were currently at their father’s for the summer, allowing you time to get the house ready for them, and hopefully give him a nice homecoming.
You’d bought a house 4 hours from your old life, in a community called the Kingdom. It had made you raise an eyebrow at first, but the more you looked into it, the more you loved it. You drove out twice- once to take a tour, and once to sign the paperwork. Now, the third time, you were filling the once empty house, to make it into a home.
You had 7 weeks to get things ready for them before they came home, and got ready for school. They would have a week between getting there, and the first day of school. Hopefully, they made friends fast.
Hearing a meow, you looked around and spotted an orange cat on your back porch. Chuckling, you walked up the stairs and scooped the cat up. “Well, hello, there.” You scratched behind their ears, causing them to purr and close their eyes.
“I’m sorry.” Came a voice from your left. “Shiva likes to wander now and then.” He smiled.
Carrying the cat towards the fence, you smiled back, shaking your head. “It’s not a problem.” You handed her over. “She’s beautiful.” Your finger rubbed under her chin gently.
He looked surprised for a moment. “I’m impressed.” He chuckled at the quizzical look you gave him. “Shiva isn’t normally so quick to take to others.” He explained. “She gets a bit…testy. Likes to act larger than she truly is.” You laughed at that. “I’m Ezekiel.” He held out his hand and you shook it. “You may hear me referred to as King Ezekiel from time to time.”
“I’m Y/N…and King?” You were curious about this.
“Come to dinner, and I shall tell you anything you’d like to know.” His eyes were kind, making you nod. “Next door, say 6?” He motioned to his house.
“I will see you at 6.”
“So, we’re halfway through our very delicious meal, Shiva has claimed my foot, and you have yet to tell me about being King.” You smiled, sipping your drink.
Ezekiel laughed, nodding as he wiped the corners of his mouth with a napkin. “Children love to create wild stories. Imaginations with no limits. I moved in about 5 years ago. A little boy told me I walked like the King in his favorite movie, and his friends all agreed. It just…stuck. So, every now and then, I’d see them, and ‘command’ them.” His eyes lit up as you laughed. “The first time they looked shocked, but then I told them that they were to be my royal knights.”
“That’s very sweet of you.” You said softly.
“I’m sure the parents found it quite odd for a bit, but even some of them refer to me as King. I don’t mind, it’s all in good fun. But, enough about that. I’d like to know about the Queen who moved in next door.”
