Every night Abella rises and renews the promise to herself to get rid of Makalo’s abomination. Every night that promise comes closer to fruition.
Abella knew that she was living on borrowed time. She seen the hatred grow more and more in Makalo’s eyes. She hears the whispers from the others about his conquests. Yet he would not touch her. Only that once to consummate the mating.
Abella tried her best over the years to show remorse about her sister’s death and to prove to him how deep her love was. Makalo did not once listen. He did not once shown compation. What he gave was indifference, infidelity and loneliness.
He created a prison with no bars. She could not seek forfillment with another or else she will be put to death. What she allowed with the ancient was torment in it’s most primal form. When he heard of her demise did he shown an ounce of care. No he threatened to kill her if she go outside the mating again. It was his right to do so.
All the same she rose and looked at herself in the mirror and smiled. She will kill Adorjan and she will do it in front of his father and the rest. They will see she is a true mate to Makalo. A pure mate that will give him offspring if he only tried.
“Abella I have located Mimi.”
“Were was she?”
“She was in Cleos’ chambers.”
“Was she there all night?”
“I can not say. I too was asleep when the dawn came.”
“What about our servants. Can they vouch to where she has been.”
“Yes Marisa the maid said that she seen when she went into her chamber at the dawn.”
“Bring her to me at once.”
“Mimi you naughty child. Where have you been lately?” She asked as she smiled at herself in the mirror.
Creya walked beside Adorjan without saying a word. He was still brooding from eating the cookie. They stopped for the night to rest in the following town.
The lodging were known to housed their kind without asking questions. Before they went to their rooms she had to breatk this silence.
“Look Jan I am sorry. I did not think this would affect you this badly”
“Why because of who my father is? Well I was raised by my mother and grandmother you seem to forget.”
“okay I get it.”
“No you haven’t got it. You took something away from me that was my right to—“
Adorjan stormed off into his room and slammed the door. Creya felt worse. At least with silence you do not deal with emotions. That was something she was never good at.
She asked the owner of the place if he had a bottle of house wine. Of course he did and charged accordingly. Creya went to her room and drank half the bottle down before having enough courage to confront adorjan again.
She went to his door and banged on it. Adorjan opened it. He looked slightly wet. His hair looked as if it was washed and she smelled honey suckle. she needed to keep her head clear. She pushed him out of the and stood in the middle of the room.
“Look Jan I do not apologize more than once. But here I am apologizing again. I am sorry I gave you my blood.”
Adorjan could tell she was a bit drunk. Her words were not slurred but her posture was relaxed, not so guarded. Her ears were slightly pink and so were her cheeks.
“I accept. Now leave please.”
“Not until you finish what you were about to say down there.”
He stood there debating if he should.
“No you said I took away your right. Your right to what?”
He moved closer to her. “I am not fully human. I am not fully vampire.”
“Tell me something I don’t know.”
He looked at her with an annoyed face.
“Again I am sorry. Wow that’s three times. I’m on a roll with you.”
“It is my right to have my first bite when I decide to – -“
“Oh not that to again. To what? Sleep with someone?” Creya laughed. “You can not be that pure looking the way you do.”
Adorjan went to his bag and pull out a shirt.
“You are, aren’t you?”
“It’s not something we should discuss. I’m sure that you have experience as well.”
“Why are you so sure about that?”
Adorjan stood and walked close to her. He could smell the wine on her breath. He moved as close as was possible. He felt her breath on his skin. He watched as her lips tinted the color of her ears.
He swallowed the minute moisture that was left in his mouth. He slowly leaned down and he heard her heart racing. Her pupils dialated. She looked afraid.
“See I am aware that women do not respond like you when they have been with other’s. Did you know that lips flush with color when aroused? There is four to five layers of skin that betrays you.” He whispered close to her mouth.
Creya pushed him away and realized that he knew. She need to leave.
“Am I right, Creya?”
“Lips Lie all the time.” She said as she walked out of his room.
“Not this time.” He said knowing that she heard him.
Mimi was escorted to Abella chambers. She sat near the window looking out.
“So my dear I have not seen you for a while. Why is that?”
“I was away. Did you miss me Abella?” She said sarcastically
“I really do not have time for this. You know you will be dust shortly.”
“Oh really. If you kill me My father will ask for your head. Everyone know about you Abella. I am not in your care but in Makalo. “
“Do I care? You are the spy. I figured it out.”
“You were never that far away from me. Lurking in the shadows. It just occurred to me that you are the only one capable of doing that very thing.”
Mimi knew she had only one chance. It was a bold move but she will have to try.
“If I did as you say. Let the fire judge me.”
“You would stand in front of the fire?”
Abella laughed. “The fire will comprise of my choosing. You will be ash.”
“I will take the ruling of the fire.”
“Fine you will meat the fire. Tomorrow at sunset.”
Mimi turned and left. She prayed that Makalo will return soon.
