New Blog called Have you lost your Mind?

Good morning/day/evening to you all. I have been debating on starting a new post. Due to having a lot on my plate at the moment. I just can not deny myself or you my followers of this.

I have been posting wicked wednesday in which you would write in and I will give advice or information on different topics.  I am going to take that concept and put it on a different path.

Everyday something comes up in my everyday life that I say to my self, “Have you lost your mind?” I will write what the event is without using the name or place and then post my comments. As my followers your more than welcome to comment.

So to give you a taste of the new blog here is one post.

One day you wake up and you feel a slight tingling in your left hand. You decide it’s nothing. Later it progesses to numbness in the left arm and a headache. You go to your local pharmacy and take your blood pressure. It’s sky high. Instead of going to the emergency room you call your doctor and leave a message. Waiting for a call back that might not come until later that day.  One side of your face starts to feel funny. Yet your still waiting.

Have you lost your mind?

The cost of the emergency room is crazy high. I agree with everyone on that matter. But  what if your having a stroke? Your bills fall on your family, if you do not have medical insurance. If you do have medical insurance they will still have to pay something out of their pocket. Now if you have a heart attach and you do not have life insurance and your job medical insurance only covers part of the hospital bill. Who is it going to fall on? Your family or the state. Which is all of us. (This is assuming you have no savings)

This all could be avoided by going to the emergency room to get evealuated and nipped in the bud straight away. There will be a bill but you’ll be around to take care of it.

Why did I choose this example? Because I hear this incident happen allot and I wanted to say something. If you have a comment or a “Have you lost your mind insident” that you would like to share and have me  comment on. send me a message and I will. If you have been following me, there is no topic that I shy away from except religion and politics. Sorry I here to have bonfires not an inferno’s.

Until next we me. Keep the fires burning. XOXO Fia

Waking up on the cold ground with a centipede crawling across his face  Adorjan woke up with a start. Slightly disoriented and a pounding headache Adorjan took a quick glance at the scenery.

“Do you need to feed?” A male voice asked coming from behind him. 

“I don’t feed. I’m not a vampire.”

“No, you are not Dhampir and take down that tone of disgust in your voice or I will leave you here to deal with the blood lust that will eventually strike you.”

Adorjan did not like the tall red headed man. As a matter of fact he felt aggressive towards him. “Where is Creya?”

“She had to take care of some personal things. She will return.”

As adorjan turned, Leo heard his stomach growl from hunger.

“You need to feed. If it is not blood at the moment then it is food.” Leo went to a sachel that lying on the ground by the oak tree. He pulled out a dried peice of meat and handed it to him.

“Eat this it will curb your hunger.”

Adorjan took the meat and took a bite. It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t the best but it did the trick.”Thank you.”

“Ah finally manners. Your welcome. Have a seat and let’s talk for amoment before Creya returns.

He didn’t like where this was headed but he did what he was asked.

“Look I was asked to accompany you and Creya for a while just in case you start with your blood lust. I will do what I was asked but if you attempt to bite and drain Creya I will put you down.”

“How are you planning to do that? By punching me in my back  again?” He asked as he took another bite.

“No I will rip your jaw off your face then I will stake you.” Leo said with all the seriousness that the situation required.

“You can leave. I am not going into blood lust.”

“You had your first taste of blood a couple of days ago. You bit into a couple of guys in that fight and your telling me your not feeling that pull? That burning sensation that tells you your ready to feed?”

“No I don’t. I’m a dhampir remember not a full blooded vampire.”

“Well I will stay around awhile just in case I am needed. From time to time I will have to leave to feed.”

Adorjan noticed the incisors and the slightly longer than normal fingernails. They both jumped from the rustle they heard coming from the woods. Pulling him out of his train of thoughts.

Leo sat back down first. “It’s just Creya she’s tring to get the drop on me. Sit and let’s see what she come up with.”

It must be some kind of game the two engaged in. It bothered Adorjan that she did this but he had no right to feel this way. He sat there and ate his food.

A squirl ran up a tree causing the birds above them to take flight. Suddenly their attention was drawn to  a large crack from a broken stick coming from the left of them. What emerged from the woods was a dirty old man in tattered clothing and dirt on his teeth. They both sat still and was about to get up, when Creya jumped from the top of the tree and landed on Leo’s back.

The old man went back into the woods, to where ever it was he came from and Creya tried her best to knock Leo down. Finally Leo flipped her over his sholder causing her to land on four feet.

“I almost had you.” She said while breathing heavily.

Leo looked at her and smiled. “If that is your best form of attack I can rest easy tonight.”

“Wow, nice Leo.” She said as she stood up and dusted herself off. She stretched her arms above her head revealing a little bit of her flat stomach.

Adorjan looked at her and then at Leo and wondered what their relationship was.

“Jan you woke up finally. Did you eat yet?”

“Yeah. He gave me some dried meat.” He held it up for her to see.

“Ewww. I’ll go get us some food.”

“I can do it.”

“Just sit it will only take me a minute and you will slow me down.”

“In other words, stay.” Leo said with a chuckle.

“Leo stop trying to start a fight.”

There was that smile again. Adorjan can see this Leo was feeling more for her than she realized. Creya left before he could protest.

“So she calls you Jan, Huh? Are you two together?”

“Why? Do you want her?”

“A matter of fact, I do?”

Adorjan did not know what to say to that. The man blatantly was claiming Creya.

“So what I am saying is, if you want her I won’t make it easy.”

Adorjan just looked at the man and took another bite of the dried meat. he really did not like him.

Avos a school for pure bred vampires and where Makalo’s daughter had spent most of her life.

Makalo searched the  school for her until he finally found her. In the arms of a young vampire about to be bitten.

“Jaqueline what are you doing?” As he asked he snatched the boy by the neck and snapped it. Rendering him dead. At least for the moment.

“Father what are you doing? Why have you come?”

“Answer me now!”

“That was Mica and we are together.”

“Like hell you are. You are coming home right now.”

“What about Mica?”

“He is fine. If he is truly pure blood he will awaken shortly and if not good ridden.”

Makalo grabbed his daughter and took her to her room to get her things.

“Father I was going to tell you and mother about him since he want to be my mate.”

“NO!”

“What do you mean No?” Makalo could see himself in her anger and he felt a twinge of pride of her not backing down.

“I said no. You are already betrothed.”

“Undo it.”

“No. Get your things before I snap your neck.”

She was seething with anger but she did as she was told.”

“I will stake myself if I don’t let me and Mica mate.”

That was it, he had a lot to deal with and she was not to be part of the problem. Makalo walked to his daughter and snapped her neck to knock her out. It will be a heavier load to carry back but he had no other choice.

So I hope you are liking the first inkling of love and confrontation. If so let me know. Star if you like and follow. Until next time keep it burning.

Lurkspur is here{Tcotd(cpt15)

I do not own this picture found on instagram

The tacky texture of a drop of blood about to congealed happens in about eight to fifteen minutes. Within that span of time a new member to the story has just made her presence known and her name is Lurkspur.

Lurkspur is not one to be trifle with. The androgynous way he or she choses to dress is quite disturbing to those in the nest. Some say she is an ancient and others believe she is just a pure blood vampire with remarkable abilities.

Lurkspur has decided to pay Makalo a visit. No one dare say no and no one could remember as to why they wouldn’t. She walked in the house with a boom. The door opened to his power.

All talking came to an end and all eyes were on Lurkspur. It stood at six feet three inches. With the help of heeled shoes. The white flowy blouse and black tight pants were a confusing mix. Since the bulge indicates male but the top appearce screamed female.

Makalo stood at the top of the stair case and watched the show.

“Are you not going to greet me prince or must I prostrate myself in front of every one for a whispered hello?”

Makalo could not hold back his smile. Lurkspur always had that power over him.

“I will greet you once you decide what sex your representing.”

Lurkspur made a frivolous gesture with its hands, tossed his shoulder length, chestnut colored hair and said,” For an hour I will be male and the next female. We will continue to rotate if I decide to stay till dawn.”

Lurkspur bowed in a gentlemanly way conceding to the prince. Makalo walked down and slapped him on the shoulder as he said,” Welcome my friend.”

“Makalo we must talk but not here and not where the walls have ears.” Lurkspur said.

Makalo motioned for him to follow him. He guided him into the study that no one dared to enter.

“Is it safe?”

“Send out your power to check.”

“I can not Makalo. My power has increased and what I may think is a trickle could blow the wall down.”

“Always the extremist. What is so urgent that you have my people struck dumb.”

“There has been a shift in the ether.”

“What?”

“Yes an imbalance. Have you interfered on your offsprings journey?”

“I have told no of him and yet you know. Your power has increased.”

“You believe that the boy is the one I am asking after.”

Makalo had not thought of his daughter for a while. His thoughts always where on his son.

“She has been away studying. She will come of age to marry in a year. What do you know?”

Lurkspur walked to the window and looked at the moon. “The ether is stating that you will not have a chance to marry her off. A dark claim is being set for her.”

“A dark claim?” Makalo questioned trying to think what he meant. Then it came to him.

“Dolph! How did he find her?”

“He is attracted to the purest of blood and of course your blood line. You have until the next full moon to change the course or what will happen next I do not even want to speak of.”

Lurkspur always did like to dramatize a situation but this time he was not exaggerating. The full moon was to nights away. He had to find some to be in charge and mimi was out of commission.

“Makalo do not fret. That is why I am here. I will watch your house until your return.”

“That would not be necessary.”

“Do not argue with me. You need a strong leader until you return. whether male or female I am the force they do not want to test.”

Makalo did not doubt that but will he give his next back after that is worry.

“Come lets have a drink then you should leave and fetch her” Lurspur pured the red wine then broke the glass in his hand. As the blood dripped he walked to Makalo, “I give you my blood oath I will not take the nest my friend.” He held the bleeding hand to his lips and Makalo licked the jagged wound.

Just a drop of Lurkspur’s blood was dangerous. It would bind you to it for all eternity if it choose to. If he were to go against his oath he would perish. It lived to long to want to die now.

Lurkspur stepped away and Makalo noticed that it held itself more feminine than just a moment ago.

“The hour has past and now I am female.”

Makalo heartedly laughed as Lurskspur giggled into her silk sleeve.

“Go know.” The voice had changed as well. Softer.

Makalo nodded and left to go and retrieve his daughter. Lurkspur went to the wine and poured more into a new glass. the cut healed and she felt like being a little naughty.

“I wonder who will quench my thirst for the night.” She giggled and then drank the wine.

So I hope you like this new twist in the call of the dhampir. Please like, and comment Tell a friend. Until next time keep the fire lit.
