    Seeing that the others were in full agreement with one another over the subject of backing the invasion, Tiberius closed his book and proceeded to rise from his seat. Seeing that it was close to the time of the banquet for the evening, Tiberius spoke up. "Well my friends, seeing that we've come to an agreement for now, we should probably call it a night and continue again in the morning as it is getting late. Now if you can all give me some privacy, I need to wake up Leona and talk to her in private before bed. That includes you too Selena for now." As he finished, Tiberius motioned to the door in a polite manner to ask everyone to leave........

    Selena bowed in a friendly mocking manner before she left as the first.
    " Well then we should leave soon, maybe we will hit the tanks." He turned a last time to Tiberius.
    "I will have a little demonstration for you tomorrow my friend. I think you will like them."
    He gave the draconid a wink and he understood the command. Later this evening two draconid guards would add the security, only for the case.
    They entered the tribunes just in time to see the gem of the Phoenixian Land Forces.
    " M21A2 Valkyrie Mainbattle Tanks, we got the DPRs for this model a year ago, they cost a few hundred billion but they are worth it. One of the most modern tanks, capable to defend against nearly anything Maximilian will send against us, at least from what we know and we are producing half a million of this things by now.
    With the right weaponry they could also good dragon hunters."

    As the others left to watch the rest of the parade, Tiberius went over to his sleeping daughter to fill her in on the recent turn of events. As she woke up, Leona could only give a look of perplexed emotions towards her father before she spoke. "Father, why would you keep this a secret from me? About our heritage? Why? I mean, I know the legends and the myths but why keep it from your family?" Leona was about to continue her contingent until Tiberius stepped in to sort it out for her. "Leona, you must understand. What I did was to protect you and the family from the unspeakable horrors that the name Targaryen has brought to the Imperium over it's history. Our blood might hail from the Ancient Council of the Dragon, but our blood is cursed also. While it grants us many abilities, if used incorrectly then....well you've seen what Maximilian has become. That's what our blood does if we don't control ourselves. It turns us into blood-leaching monsters. That's why I hid this from you." As he finished, Tiberius went over to his chest and got something as he returned to the bed. He then proceeded to wrap a golden locket-type necklace around Leona's neck that had the Targaryen Seal on it. "This necklace contains the blood of every Targaryen that has ruled the Imperium for the last 2,000 years. It has powers that I can't even describe and it's what Maximilian needs to complete his transformation. Leona, you going to be the Empress of the Imperium if and when I die during this liberation. So it is now your responsibility to protect this at all costs. I've held this burden for over 40 years of my life and now it belongs to you. Goodnight my daughter, I'll see you in the morning." Before Leona could speak again, Tiberius took her to her room and proceeded to go back to his room to sleep.......

    The four Constannians noticed the others returning to watch the last part of the parade, wondering what they had been doing before then. "Well, this parade certainly has been interesting to watch so far, although it is getting late and the festivities seem to be drawing to a close here. Could you remind me what the next event is? We were in a rush on our way over here, and we've forgotten the schedule somewhat," the Constannian Archduke asked.

    The Count smiled. "You know that maybe a possibility your majesty. Perhaps I suggest that to the Elven High Command, when I return to the Empire." Malel said with a smile.

    When The king inquired about the princess, The count could barely hold back a "ugh". "Yes the Princess Amarauko. She is accompany our delegation. Do not worry your majesty you will meet her her highness soon enough. I believe she resting at this time." Malel said hoping the king would buy the excuse. In reality the count had no idea where she went and though alone made him nervous

    " That would be very good, we will need all our advantages when the rumors I heard about Maximilian are right. He conquered the Empire within 3 years, he has advantages sure but he must also a military genius to accomplish this task within only 3 years.
    But he hasn't see our newest arsenal by now."
    By now the parade is going quite, the tanks stopped their motors and the lights were shut down. A few visitors already are going to protest because the Airforce don't get a single part of the parade this year.

    The yells were shut down when low music indicates that the final was yet to arrive.
    The lights sprung into action again, this time flood lights instead of the street lights and the lights was centered in the sky.
    Then without a warning everyone could hear it, the loud 'vhommmmmm' was ear breaking but most of the visitors don't noticed it even, they pointed to a group of around 20 points that screw out of the air in rapid speed.
    They were gigantic, bigger than all planes the Kingdom ever build, bigger than most airships, even bigger than some Naval Vessel.
    It doesn't need the full-throated roar that shattered glass all over the city and must be audible over miles to show WHAT the new weapon in the Phoenixian Airforce contained.
    " Dragons, third generation. And they will getting even bigger." The look of the king got the kind of pride parents have for their children.
    Most of them were black but a few of them sparkles in all colors of the rainbow when the light hit their scalings.
    As they arrived at the designed landing area only two of them could land at once leaving enough time to see that the dragons are manned by dozens of men each.
    " Protection measures and additional weaponry. They will escorted by helicopters of course but it has proven right to man them with bombing crews and soldiers to defend them against airplanes and other dragons." He was interrupted when a second squad took his attention.
    This one were much smaller but more in number.
    " Gryphons, they are breathing in the mountains since around 50 years and we made good progress to integrate them in our society. a few hundred of them decided to accept our offer to join the military as scouts, messenger and in some cases also bombers."
    The gryphons reached the tribune, their white plumes highlighting in the light.
    " So what do you think about them ? It was hard work to earn the loyality of the dragons but we think that it is worth the time and costs for their training."

    The vice-counselor turned to the group, he was also interested why the group suddenly took their leave but he was not to worried, things like that happened quite often here in Phoenixia.
    " Allow me, I was a co-author of the program. Tomorrow morning is a city-tour planed, and tomorrow evening will be the official anniversary feast." Only then he seems to realize who was the group before him and he paled a good bit.
    Luckily he was saved by the events of the Parade ? (ooc see my response to Elvens Post as reference.)

    The Count Smiled at the display of the Phoenix kingdom dragons. It wasn't the count first time to see dragons, but the sight of them never cease to amaze Malel. "There magnificent your majesty. We in the Empire have Dragons in our service. They are great friends and worthy allies of our Empire. It is a honor to see that your nations is trying to do the same in your country." The count said with a smile.

    At the first sight of the Dragons Red Claw jumped from the tribune to follow the formation, he came right back in time to hear the Elven Response.
    " True, this are mountain dragons, bigger then other races but most of them are not capable magics. But we have a few other dragon races here and we are looking forward to get their full potential in one or two decades."
    The king nods at the words of his general. "It was one of the best presents we could have trough the Non Human Sappient - Bureau of Immigration.
    Our last tests shows that Dragons are much better then normal bombers, make sense because bombers are not intelligent and don't have so sharp eyes, they could watch a mouse in a high of 50 meters and above."
    " Much more above your majesty but we don't enough mice to test it for a higher distance."
    The draconide shows some weird form of grin again.
    " Alright, I think Tiberius will explode when he heard what he miss, so it would be better to deliver him good evidence, is Black Wing available tomorrow ?"
    " Aye he is available tomorrow sir, manned or unmanned ?"
    " Unmanned, I think his appearance will a big enough shock for him." He turns to the elves again.
    " For today nothing else is planed so you should rest, I don't know how much sleep elves need but I will take my leave soon.
    Tomorrow a city tour is planed if you don't hear my vice-counselor a few minutes ago.
    You shouldn't miss it, New Hope could be a wonderful city, full of history and the power of old times. You could even saw a few of the new districts we build in the last decades to give Non Human Species better fitting houses.

    As Tiberius headed back to his room to sleep, Leona looked at the necklace that her father gave her. The necklace itself was ornate with gold and silver running down the bands of the necklace. The Targaryen Dragon symbol and vile itself were made of fine gold wrapped in ivory; finishing off the design. As she examined it, Leona thought back to what her father said about the necklace. This necklace contains the blood of every Targaryen that has ruled the Imperium for the last 2,000 years. It has powers that I can't even describe and it's what Maximilian needs to complete his transformation. Leona, you going to be the Empress of the Imperium if and when I die during this liberation. So it is now your responsibility to protect this at all costs. I've held this burden for over 40 years of my life and now it belongs to you. She then proceeded to fall asleep over those words as her head was now filled with more questions then answers.

    Tiberius, on the other hand, continued to go through his books as night began to fall upon the palace itself. During his reading, he made it noted that he knew Selena was there watching him and invited her to come out to talk if she felt so.......

    The Elves nodded to King. "Thank you your majesty. This was very great display of your military might. We look forward to a tour of your fair city. We promise the Princess will be there for the tour. Enjoy your rest your majesty and thank you for generosity." Selana said with a warm smile. The Count was little nervous when the Fey'ri was mention, but his concern behind a vale of professional appearance.

    An hour after the end of the parade two men make ready for their strike. Years of training result in this one moment, one moment that would decide the hidden war and would make both of them very rich.
    Unknown to this two assassins the palace already knows that they are coming.
    As soon as they entered the floor where the Delegation of Tiberius Maximus and his daughter Leona stayed four swords were headed to them.
    " I give you one thing, you are intelligent but even the most intelligent assassin is a death assassin if they don't know how to walk in the shadows."
    Selenas voice was nothing more than a breeze in the air. But her short sword was more than serious and deadly.
    Without a inquiry the two assassins feel death to the ground.
    " Nowadays everyone can call himself a assassin." She sighted, knowing that it was her duty to inform Tiberius over the happenings.
    He was a bit old for her taste but nonetheless handsome. With a slight shake she refused to acknowledged that she ever thought about that. This was a job plain and simple.
    Like every other job, it was her duty, she was trained for it years ago.
    Right ?
    'Oh stuff it, he's not interested in you and you couldn't trust anyone, that's the risk with your job. Single a whole life.'
    She entered the room where Tiberius was waiting like if he knows that something happened.
    'Damn Dragon Blood, this will be making my job much harder.'
    "We got intruders in the floor, imposing two assistants, both from the Brownland Delegation. We are able to terminate this threats successfully. We are increasing security measures by now." The last one was a lie that came easily over her lips, it would do no good to make the emperor paranoid and he doesn't need to know that there would be no other assassination attempts this night.
    " So after we sealed the floor I was send to guard you here, in case someone manages to came trough the guards. So if you want company I will be here the full night." Even as she speaks she noticed the slightest detail of the room, coming back to her professional mode.

    Tiberius seemed surprised by Selena's revelations of an attempted assassination on his daughter's and his own life, but at the same time he wasn't distracted by it as he came to expect it by now being in the position they were in. He calmly put his book to the side as he went over to the private bar and poured himself two drinks of liquor as he began speaking to Selena. "You know that's the 20th time in the last three years alone Maximilian has hired someone to try to kill Leona and me? And it seems with each attempt the people he hires get more and more sloppy and less detailed. This is showing and worrying me that he is becoming more desperate for power as he tries to secure his position. But as long as Leona is safe then congrats on successfully killing the two possible assassins." As he took a moment, Tiberius finished pouring the drinks and proceeded to head to Selena and gave her a glass. He then proceeded to head back to his desk before speaking again. "You can relax Selena, no one else is going to attempt to harm Leona or me tonight. And I can tell you think I'm handsome by the way you keep examining me. I admit you are a beautiful lady yourself,and if I haven't meet Ardrelia beforehand, I'd be trying to ask more about yourself and try to romance with you. But, never-the-less, I'm engaged so that ruins that thought, but at least we can still each others company, right? Take a few minutes and enjoy a drink with me." As Tiberius waited for a response, he took a sip of the liquor........

    The red haired sighted in relief, she couldn't trust her body, not in this job but at least her mind would be sharp as ever.
    " It will be better this way, feelings are leading to errors and errors are leading to failures.
    Love is not as distraction as hate but it's on the second place and you see what a desperate person that hate his target could do, less to nothing.
    Despite this you must be desperate and crazy to try a classical assassination in the palace. Our former Lord Counselor knows this and decided for a massive blow against the Kingdom and he was nearly successful.
    Anyway, it is better when I can focus on the job, we are no priests so it isn't forbidden to love but in nearly in all cases it leads to a tragedy of some sorts. I admit that I'm impressed, not much men would deny one of us." She allow her self a slow smile as she said that.
    " As I said, it didn't surprise me that he hired this idiots, no offense they are good spies, maybe they would escape if they don't try to assassinate you and Leona. In a normal palace they may be successful but they are nevertheless Idiots, making amateur failures. We know their goal as soon as they left their quarters. You wouldn't believe how many walls in this palace has ears, our ears." She took a small gulp from the drink to hide her smile, he doesn't need to know that EVERY wall in this palace, save the royal quarters were bugged.
    immediately she know her error, if her mind were not so clouded she had see the trap long before.
    With a fast movement she was beneath him and hit the goblet out of his hand.
    " This one was more clever, a slow potion. achromatic, flavorless and scentless. Luckily it isn't working in alcohol. Otherwise we wouldn't have much time. Here take that." Out of her sleeve she took two vial of cool blue liquid, one of them she drank without hesitation
    " A general anti poison, it will doing not much because of the low concentration but it will help, otherwise you will have sickness in around 20 minutes. However the poisoner was, he doesn't know anything about it. Was the bottle here before you arrive or was it one of your own bottles ?"
    Even the fact that she saved her target the second time this night doesn't let her loose her calmness.
    " However is behind this, he is better then I expected, the Assassins were only a distracting from the poisoned bottle. I will make this failure not twice and however is behind that he will pay."

    " A general anti poison, it will doing not much because of the low concentration but it will help, otherwise you will have sickness in around 20 minutes. However the poisoner was, he doesn't know anything about it. Was the bottle here before you arrive or was it one of your own bottles ?"
    Even the fact that she saved her target the second time this night doesn't let her loose her calmness.
    " However is behind this, he is better then I expected, the Assassins were only a distracting from the poisoned bottle. I will make this failure not twice and however is behind that he will pay."

    Tiberius was again surprised by the manner that Selena acted in saving his life from the poison in the liquor. Taking her advice, he took the anti-poison and drank it to wear off the effects of the poison that flowed through his blood now. Falling back into his chair from the effects of the anti-poison, Tiberius looked to his savior before speaking. "Well, I guess I owe you my life now for protecting me twice in one night. Thank you. How they managed to get poison into my own private liquor I still can't believe. It's just......." Tiberius didn't know what compelled him to do so, but he then kissed Selena for several moments before falling back into his chair.........

    The kiss hit Selena completely out of guard,
    she was more than surprised by the spontaneous show of emotion, especially after the strict denial before. However after the first moment of surprise she meet the kiss but leave him in the initiative.
    She took a long breath after the emperor failed back in his chair.
    " Well, that was a way to thank me." She licked her lips as she could explore the scent of him with more senses.
    " I know you are happily engaged but if you want to progress this I will not trouble you in the future, what happens in this room will stay in this room." She could mention that she would send her sisters to inquire everyone in the delegation to find out who was responsible for this bottle, also they would inquire the customs officer in charge for the day and if needed they would send Agents to the Whine Dealer. Nobody, absolutely nobody dared to assassinate a guest of the Phoeniixan palace and continued to life to tell the tale.
    But all of that was saved on the back of her head for the duty tomorrow, now she would follow his advise and for the first time in quite a few months she relaxed out of her warrior mode...

    As Tiberius had kissed Selena, he sensed a moment of weakness in himself for kissing someone that wasn't Ardrelia. What if she found out, she would be heart broken and leave him and Leona. But at the same time, it felt nice to kiss Selena out of the moment for her saving him. As he sat there thinking over everything, Selena noted to him that whatever happened in the room would stay here. Finally, after some silence between them, Francis spoke. "Selena, that was out of line for me and I'm sorry for acting in the manner that I did. While I do find you attractive and interesting, I don't know if I should proceed with me being engaged. I don't want to break Ardrelia's heart if she finds out, but I can sense in you that you have loneliness also to deal with. So as a favor to you for saving me, I'll offer myself to you if you want me." Tiberius waited for answer as he sat there.......

    The red haired woman stood there for a moment, two voices in her head. On the one hand she want him, not in a relationship manner but in a manner of a one night stand, her life was far to dangerous to allow something like a partnership or god forbid a official marriage.
    It would be a weakness and in her business a weakness was deadly. However she wanted him and their was no doubt that he want her too.
    On the other hand there were many cons, he was a target to protect, she need to keep professional. Also there would be ever a other woman in her heard and every women with a normal moral wouldn't dare to even try something like that.
    However she was not a normal woman and her senses were on overdrive, her reasonability was already slight deaf, only hearing what she want to hear.
    "I want you, not in the romantic 'and if they are not death they are still alive' part but in a more realistic part. No strings, no obligations. She will never find out anything, this room is sound reduced and no one will ever hear from this."
    With a quick movement she looked the door, only in case Leona decided to interrupt them tonight.
    With the same movement she put a little device on the wall, jamming all bugs that are in place in the room. After all she was true to her word and after the work they earned a night of privacy.

    Interlude post:
    The sun barely rise over the horizon as the palace woke in activity again.
    King Erik Eirikson IV was never a man of long sleep and the events of the last day doesn't change that for various reasons.
    It was nearly official, Phoenixia drove right into the next war and again their would be many looses, more than anytime before.
    The great rebellions, the independent war, even the Napoleonic war and the World Wars would be nothing compared to the conflict that would now arise. Each time the contingent was small or the enemy easy to overthrow, both are luxuries that would be not valid this time and that worried him more than anything.
    His steps lead him to the oldest part of the palace, deep in even deeper. He shivered in his morning grow, despite the jacket he wears.
    His destination lays deep in a hole under the palace. His way lead him past statues of former Kings of Phoenixia, marble representatives of Jarl Eirikson the Great, Lars Eirikson the Sailor, Johan Eirikson the Builder, the list goes on and on.
    He wondered which name he would get, Erik the brave ? Erik the coward ? Erik the idiot ?
    Deep in thoughts he reached the holy center after more than a hour. There laid the bones of Knud Eirikson the strong, first notable king of Phoenixia.
    In times of great distress it was tradition to ask him for advise and a few kings swore that the ghost of Knud would respond.
    " Ancestors, send me the strength to survive this times of distress, I came for you three times but never was the Situation so difficult.
    Send me the wisdom to choose the right decisions, send me the bravery to banish my enemies, send me the strength to survive until my son will come home alive.
    Oh please my ancestors, save my son. That's the only one I want, let him return unharmed and victorious so that he can succeed when my time is over."
    He said this and more to his ancestors, to Odin, Tyr, Freya and all the other known and unknown gods. All in all he spent 4 hours in the cave under the palace. So he missed the breakfast and the organized City tour but sacrifices must be made...

    ooc: This is the official end of Day 1, the Night betweeen Selena and Tiberius can be RPed if Bro wishes it but otherwise Day 1 is complete... for RP reference it is now ~ 7 am.

    The Elves had rested well during the night. They had gotten up early and had made ther way down for the the city tour. When they arrived they notice they where the only ones there. Malel look around and finally asked a guard. "Excuse me but wasn't there a royal tour of the city today?" Malel asked concerned. This was not his only concern. He still had no idea where the princess had gone to. He hope she wasn't making trouble.

    The guard looked at the elves with a bit of amusement. "No you are right, there is a city tour today, in around a hour and a half..."
    He was interrupt by a call on his radio.
    " Yeah Private Staunton ? No sir, still no sight from her, no sir no trace, not the slightest since she delivered the meals yesterday. No sir that's not possible, diplomatic problems. No sir we are sure she isn't there anymore. Yes I know that Admiral Lehmann is concerned, heavens it's his niece after all. Yes sir I will continue my patrol over and out."
    He turned again to the Elves.
    " Sadly my timeframe is short. If you wish I can order a guide for you in half an hour, at this time the other delegations should be done with their breakfast." True to his word they heard growing noises coming from the direction of the throne room where the breakfast was held.

    Hearing Selena's answer, Tiberius waited for her to finish securing the room before he made his move on her. He slowly took off his shirt and coat revealing the muscles and scars of war around his body. Tiberius then went up behind Selena and started kissing her neck while slowly undressing her; eventually leaving only her bra and shorts on. He then lead the two of them to the bed were Tiberius laid on his back while he began to kiss Selena with passion. Before they continued on, Tiberius whispered, "Remember, this doesn't become a mention or knowledge to anyone outside of this room. I still and always will love Ardrelia with all my heart. This act is just a payment for you protecting me." As he finished, Tiberius continued to kiss Selena and begin their passion for the night.........

    As the two began to kiss one another, Tiberius had a ringing sensation go through his ears as his eyes wondered over to the door of their room. The faint noise gave Tiberius a worried look as the room began to fill in a whitish glow.......

    A small little portal open into the room. The portal grew until it was big enough for one person to enter. A familar beautiful Elven woman enter the room smiling. "Tiberius I am here." Ardrelia said with a smile. Her smile turned to a frown as she saw the assassin in the arms of her love. Ardrelia began to cry as she spoke. "Tiberius why? Why?" Ardrelia said crying.

I was only repaying Selena here for saving my life. It wasn't supposed to go this far. I....." Tiberius couldn't help but think what he did was wrong and unforgivable to Ardrelia. He was so grief stricken that he headed to his desk and proceeded to start drinking the poisoned liquor from earlier until he collapsed to the floor.........

    Ardrelia old combat trainning kicked in. She rushed up to Tiberius and knocked the posion drink away from him at lightning speed. Moveing just as fast she grabed a vial from her belt and forced its conttents down Tiberius throat. Once she made sure that Tiberius had drank the vial contents, she smacked Tiberius. "Tiberius whats wrong with you? Why did you do that? Why are you trying to make me a widow?" Ardrelia sai with tears in her eyes.

    As Tiberius laid there in Ardrelia's arms, he faintly heard her words or saw Selena rush to her side. The liquor and poison were taking an effect on him, but it seemed that Ardrelia's quick thinking prevented him from killing himself. With tears still in his eyes Tiberius whispered to Ardrelia. "I don't deserve you Ardrelia. I betrayed your trust for a payment to Selena for protecting me. I don't expect you to forgive me and I accept if you wish to call off the marriage. But I won't live with this guilt for betraying you. I love you too much to live with this guilt. Please......." Tiberius was fainting in and out of consciousness as the anti-poison was working, but the liquor was causing Tiberius to black out.....

    Ardrelia look at Tiberius. "Tiberius I forgive you. If you where repaying a debt to Selena I understand. I am just upset you don't trust me enough to tell me. Tiberius you must understand that I love and I will always understand anything you try to tell me." Ardrelia said with a smile. Shed force another drink down Tiberius mouth. The drink instantly waken and sober up Tiberius. "Tiberius I love you and I will help you repay your debt." She said with a slutry look. With that she undress untill she was nude. Then she walk up to Selena. "If you want to Tiberius to repay his debt, allow me to help." With that she passionatly kissed Selena and began to caress her in front of Tiberius. She paused only to wink to Tiberius and beckon him to join them.
