The night went on with everyone watching and whispering about Jaqueline and Bran. the couple looked compatible but are they really only time will tell.
“So now you know who I am, does that change your view of me?”
Jaqueline gave him a slight smile and thought out what she wanted to say, instead of talking in the heat of the moment.
“The view I have of you is pleasing to the eye but the keeping of important information has tainted the vision a bit.”
He was impressed by what she said. There was more to Jaquelin than he anticipated. He decided to see if this is for show. They are now engaged and the crowd would understand if they stepped out of their prying eyes for a bit.
He made sure it was alright with Makalo before escorting her to his study to get to know her a bit.
Jaqueline steadied her breathing to show she was in control of her self. She had to admit that he was definatly affecting her womanly parts in a way that is not proper. She really did not care mind you. She was willing to give herself away a day or two ago. Now she was glad that her father had rudly interrupted.
“So what must I do to clear your vision of me, Jaqueline?”
“So you bring me into my father study to clear the view? Well a keeper of secrets is not going to clear it up. So is there any secrets you would like to tell.”
“Oh so I must spill a little blood and you get to keep all yours.” He said smiling at her as he sat on the lounge.
“Well what is it you would like to know about me?”
“I know the basics. You were sheltered from vampiric life. You were given blood and never hunted for it. Your innocents is palatable. What I want to know is what goes through your mind as you drink blood that is handed to you?”
“Do you crave the hunt? Do you want to take those pretty little fangs and sink them into supple skin or taunt skin?”
“If your inquiring do I prefer my own sex instead of the male. Well I am on the fence with that. Like you said I am sheltered and not quit sure what I stir too. Wouldn’t that cause a problem if I crave my sex instead of yours?”
“On the contrary.”
Jaqueline looked at him questioningly. “You prefer both?”
Bran smiled and gave a nod. “But that is only for blood letting. I do crave a female under, over, standing etc… me.”
Leaving off what the etc… could be had her mind in all kinds of predicaments.
“So once we are married I should expect both sexes to go through our doors.”
“Not for a while. I am fascinated by you. I want you to taste me and lonely me for days.”
Everyone knew that blood and orgasms were connected and the fact he admitted to wanting to keep her in orgasmic bliss caused her fangs to ache.
“So is that clear enough for you Jaquelin? You know what I want at least between us.”
Ever since Adorjan and Creya had gotten together it was starting to get on Leo’s nerves.
Ukr with held the information of where to locate the crimson light. The three of them stayed of three days before Leo’s temper took hold.
“Listen Ukr we have stayed here. Eaten your food and kept you company. Now we need to know where the Crimson light is. Time is ticking and the boys life is at stake.”
Adorjan hated the fact he called him a boy. But was he not acting like one by not answering him?
Ukr sat in his seat reading old parchments that seemed as if it wanted to disintegrate.
“I can not tell you how to get the Crimson light. I will tell you were you can locate it.”
“Well that ‘s better than nothing.” Leo said as he walked closer to the old man.
“You, Adorjan must go to the cave at the north east of my home. there you will see a gate. On the gate is three locks. You must figure the puzzle of the locks to open the gate.
Once inside the ground will guide you. You must not take a step because once you take that step it will guide you to a place that you will never be seen again.
Once it takes you to the room. A question will be asked and a decision must be made. You decide right you will have it. You decide wrong it will have you.”
Ukr closed the parchment and placed it beside him.
“You two will have to stay here.”
Creya did not like this news but she knew when things deviate from the path things go wrong.
“When does he go?” She asked
“He can levee now if he wishes.”
“Go Dammit. I’ll occupy Creya while your gone.” Leo said as he glared at her.
“What? Like hell you will.”
Ukr stood knowing the vampire was only teasing Adorjan but his emotions for the girl may cause a problem.
“Adorjan I will lead you part of the way.”
He nodded and looked at Creya. The last few days he had become attached to her and he could not see himself with out her. He leaned over and gave her a kiss good bye.
“Just go and hurry it up.” Leo announced.
Once they were out of the house Ukr felt he needed to impart information that may help.
“Listen you must keep your emotions in check. I know magic and this is old magic. Stronger than I ever encountered. You need to stay focus and do what must be done.”
“I will get the Crimson Light.”
“Either way your life depends on it.”
Adorjan looked at the man and knew he was either going to die getting it or die defending himself from Abella.
Hello fire starters it’s has been awhile with the cast and crew of The Call of the Dhampir. I hope your enjoying it so far. please like and subscribe and comment. Until next time let the fires keep burning.
Hello my fire starters. I hope all of you are keeping that fire burning. I wanted to give you all a bit of what are you are up to post.
So I am trying my hand at murder, mystery story. I do not want any of my followers to think I am going to stop writing my fantasy, or erotic stories. At the moment I have invested a lot of my time in a fantasy mystery book. Which I hope to finish by the end of spring.
But “The Eight O’clock Train” post seemed to want to come out. It is happening in today’s world. No fantasy ,so I am going to push my imagination to it’s limits. Where will it go. ARRG!
The call of the Dhamper is still going and I am pleased with it. There is an end to that story but I am still developing the characters which is hard when I did not want it to go on too long.
Also I will be announcing something very soon that I hope will be received by people well. We will see. Nothing ventured nothing gained. Right?
So that is all so far. Keep the fire burning Fire starters. Fia xoxo
The party was definatly one for the books. With music and crystal décor. The guest ranged from elite to the willing entrée. Jacqueline was dressed in white with red tear dropped rubies accentuating her high-spirited bosoms that seemed to want to join the party themselves.
“I do not see why I must be the only one wearing white?”
“It is your two hundredth birthday and we managed to keep you untouched.”
“So what are the red ruby drops mean?”
“That every drop of your blood is precious. Your betroth would love the double innuendo of it.”
Jacqueline did not understand until her mind went to drop of blood and breaking her purity. She rolled her eyes and was ready for war.
“Jacqueline I will warn you only once. What ever your mind has formulated as retaliation for this, do not do it. You are bound. You may dream of killing me and your father to break it. But it will not. Your bound by blood.”
“I’m what? You mean that I will never, ever be able to be with another or else I will perish?”
Abella tucked a random curl behind her hair and decided it was time to go. Jacqueline had, had enough of this. she will find this guy and make him call this thing off since she could not make them listen to reason.
The party housed everyone from the two nests. As Jacqueline made her entrance to the party all stopped and ogled her. She learned from an early age how to school her face and not show any fear, but the amount of eyes on her were intimidating.
Makalo stood beside her with a glass of aged rum and held it up to toast his daughter’s 200th birthday. Everyone applauded. Everyone except the odd handsome guy in the corner.
He was not dressed like everyone else and his features looked exotic. definatly not from around here. He must be the servant of someone. Too bad he definatly peeked Jacqueline’s interest. It didn’t matter anyway she had to find this guy and get him to call it off.
Creya walked into one of the guests rooms at the end of the house. Adorjan followed behind her trying to control his breathing.
She opened the door and waited for him to enter. Once inside she closed and locked it behind them.
“Jan do you know what I am?”
That was an odd question to ask at this time.
“Your a shifter of some kind.I think.”
“Yes I am and normally my kind likes to stalk it’s pray before we kill them. But I am not stalking you and I do not want you to run because that would set off that prey drive.”
Adorjan was feeling his nerves coming to the surface. He wanted Creya to the point that he was hurting from the pants he wore.
“What would you like then.”
“Have you ever watched animals in the wild mate?”
He frowned at the question until it dawn on him. This was going to be a very interesting night.
Adorjan slowly approached her while keeping eye contact. Creya moved back not making it easy for him. He remembered that at one point the male swiped at the female but he was not an animal. Instead he tried grabbing her and barely grazed her shoulder.
“You want me tonight and I do not deny wanting you, but you must show me that you are man enough to have what I will give.” Creya said with a low but audible growl after.
Jan took off his shirt and shoe freeing himself from the constraints to capture her. He managed to maneuver her in front of the bed. I was not going to be an easy leap to take her down since she more nimble but he had a plan.
Keeping his eyes fixed with hers he reached into his pocket and pulled out a stone he picked up along the way. Creya would not break eye contact. He managed to drop the stone on the wooden floor making a load pop as it landed. Distracting her enough that he leapt and was able to catch her off guard.
He pinned her down holding her arms above her head. Creya’s breathing was fast and erotic. Adorjan leaned in and kissed her but not how it was the first time. I was aggressive and dominating. He knew she was turned on buy the sound of a low purr emanating from her.
He released her lip to see her offer him his her neck and he knew this was a form of submission but he was not sure if he should.
“Do you want me?” She whispered
That was all the push he needed. He licked the length of her neck and kissed it. Then he began to suck on it and finally he bit but not enough to puncture skin but enough to make her arch into him.
Releasing her hands she went to take off he pants revealing how ready she was. She unbuckled his pants and slid them down until they were both bare.
She held his shaft with her left hand and slowly glided it up and down making him shudder.
“Jan wait.” She knew he was close. She spread her legs so she could cradle him between her thighs.She guided his pulsating shaft to her warm dewy entrance.
Adorjan pushed into her snug channel and trembled. He began a rhythm that is known by all to reach the aching peak of release. He felt when her nails scrathed his bare back as her walls spasmed milking him tightly to cum and he released with a scream.
Adorjan did not fall on top of Creya but watched her in awe in what they just shared.
“Jan we are not done. I have let you have me your way. You must take me mine.” She said as her eyes turned into a feral cat green with yellow.
He withdrew and flipped her over on all fours. This time it was not a slow guided entry. He went inside her making sure to claim every ripple, groove. Once she growled out, when he hit the back of her wall. He knew she was done.
Something was coming over him. He did not know if it was the rhythm of movement their bodies were doing or the rapid beating of her heart. Or the rush of blood going to his engorged cock but his incisors finally descended and he bit Creya as she came soaking him with her sweet scented juices.
Adorjan seed shot through his cock with such force that it caused Creya to growled out in orgasmic bliss.
He began to drink but he caught himself and stopped. He released her hoping she would not hate him for what occurred.
Creya looked over her shoulder as Adorjan with drew from her and she noticed that he seemed worried.
“Jan that was amazing.”
He looked at her to see if she was lying but there was not doubt in her voice.
“Come lay next to me. The night is young and I have not had my fill.” She said smiling at him.
He climbed back on the bed behind her wondering if he should hold her or not.
Creya smiled and reached for his hand and draped it across her.
“Give me ten minutes to recoup. Until then just lay with me.”
So my fire starters where they a bit wild or where they not wild enough. lol Let me know how you like it. prescribe and comment until next time. Fia xoxo
Hello fire starter’s. So you may have noticed that I have been a bit delayed on the call of the Dhampir short story and my wicked Wednesday. I do apologize for that. I will be posting the Dhamphir this weekend. Please keep watch for it.
I have been world building for a book that I will be working on very soon.
If you have been following me over the years you may have notice that I like to write : Erotica, Fantasy, and Science fiction with fantasy and Urban literature. Normally I would write them from the seat of my pants. So technically I am a pantser. But that really is not a good way to go for me any more. Since I work full time I have to be realistic. So I have created plan on story building.
I can not say I am a 100% planner. I will have moments where the story will take over. But as long as I know where it will eventually end I’m happy.
I have created story maps that seems to work for me. There is one for short stories, like my blog post and one for books.
I will eventual post my map on writing a short erotic story if anyone is interested let me know. Now my style may not be your style but you can always tweak it to your preference.
So that is log that is burning on my fire right now. Until next time. Keep it burning. Fia xoxox
The coffin door opens with the rusted squeak sounding her awakening. Yes Abella has fully recovered to be greeted by pitch darkness of her empty chamber.
She had slept for days with no blood to her speed her recovery. That was alright. Her rage kept her going. She came up with a plan that will make everything she ever wanted happen. Now what she needed at that very moment was to feed.
She climbed out of her bed and went straight to her window. She knew Makalo was punishing her still with not having blood ready for her. It did not deter her. She could her a couple in the forest about two miles out.
“I have to get fresh blood.” she said with her distended incisors.
Hunger propelled her to her meal. She watched from the distance to see if they were alone or if anything out of the ordinary about the two. Other than them being in the forest.
“Shaun can you get the Neosporin out of my bag. I gotten scratched when we went for the hike.”
“Ok.” He said from the tent.
“Excuse me.” Breathing heavily. “Would either of you spare some water? I have to get to town and I ran out.”
The lady stood from shock of Abella’s appearance. She did not look like a normal hiker. Her cheeks were sunken in and she looked ashen.
“Miss keep on going to town. We have no water to spare.” Shaun said as he walked over to his wife.
“That is terrible. I mean to die of thirst is a terrible way to go don’t you think?”
“Miss please go.”
Abella began to walk past them into the woods. She did not turn back to see them watcher her. There was no need. She was behind them.
Abella knock the man out and sinked her teeth into the female. She drank as if her blood was the sweetest thing on earth. With every gulp her beauty returned. She felt her dried up bosom swell with youth. She released the half unconscious female and went to the male.
Her lips coated with the dried blood of his wife she kissed him on the cheek as if to say, Goodbye.” Then she found the strong pulsating jugular and delve in.
She knew she was making noises similar to a pig enjoying it’s meal. It had been a long time and she needed to look her best.
After she had her fill she did not kill them. She needed help in the mortal town. She will erase all Makalo’s sympathizer’s. She looked at the moon and gaging it’s position the night was still young.
She implanted what she needed done and left them both in the woods making sure no one else came across them but their joined blood aroma.
Abella went back to her chamber to be greeted by a servant she had never seen before.
“Who are you?”
“The master sent me to you, I am Stephanie. He said you will need help getting ready for tonight.”
Abella’s had a puzzled look on her face.
“He said you would not recall that your daughter’s birthday was today since you slept so long.”
“Oh, yes I had forgotten.” Abella hated being left in the dark.
“Well let’s get on with it. Where did Agnes go?”
“All the old servants had been let go. We all have been working here for a month now.”
So that was it. It did not matter she still will get what she wanted.
The trek seemed never ending since Leo had turned up the intensity on Creya.
Creya was getting a bit annoyed by all his pawing and catching her off guard kisses.
Adorjan wanted to kill the vampire but he pulled that back but if he kept pushing he will wish he was dead.
“Ukr house is up that hill. Are you ready Jan?” Creya asked
“Well I am. To sleep on a bed at last. maybe I would be joined tonight?” Leo said looking longingly at Creya.
“Your not my type. I guess you sleep alone.” Adorjan said as he walked passed and pushed his shoulder. Creya chuckled from the interaction.
Tonight will be the night that Leo will push Creya away from him. He knew that it was a possibility to loose her friendship but the damn Add to dhampir has his hormones in tight control.
The hike up was not that difficult. They did not expect to see a three story home on a mountain away from civilization.
There was a fence that held goats and sheep. they walked up to the log house and felt as if they had walked into clear molasses.
“There is a protection spell around the house.” Leo said.
Creya knocked on the door for it to be opened by a rather large, portly man. He had what looked like the remnants of her swooped across his left eye.
“What do you need?” The large man asked.
“The Crimson Light.” Adorjan blurted out. Having Creya and Leo look at him as if he had twelve heads.
“Well that is the first time someone was so honest and I did not have to go after them with a truth spell.” He said chuckling.
“Come inside before you invite the sheep in.”
The three walked in to an impressive home. The ceiling was almost non existent. The living was huge and it seemed that the kitchen was a mile away.
A short woman with a huge smile and missing teeth walked up to them and ask what they would like to drink.
“Anything you have is fine with me, as long s you can chase it with liquor.” Creya said
“Do you have AB- on tap?”
“Yes of course. What do you take us for?”
“And you?” She said looking at Adorjan which seemed to be awe struck.
“Just water thank you.”
“Why don’t you all come in and have a seat. No need to stand around.” The gentleman said.
“So welcome to my home. I am Ukr and that was my wife minn.” He said.
‘It was an odd pair but love can be a little crazy at time.’ Adorjan thought.
“Can we get the Crimson Light?”
“Nice of you to ask young lady. But no.” Ukr said with a smile.
So we have finally found Ukr. Abella is up and about with a fiendish plan. How are you enjoying it so far? Please like and invite friends to enjoy. Let me know how you like it. I won’t burn ya. lol Until next we meet Fia xoxo
Jealousy is a powerful emotion. So powerful that if it is used right it can make things sway one way or the other.
It’s been three days since Adorjan , Creya and Leo had left the small city. Each day Leo seemed to be getting closer and closer to Creya. Adorjan tried his best not to care. He had a mission to complete. Besides why would she choose him over Leo?
“We will be in the town of Mason soon. Why don’t we stop for a bit, so I can feed and you two can get something to eat.”
Adorjan hated the fact Leo seemed to have taken over. He hated it so much in fact that he accidently bit his tongue clenching his teeth.
Leo smiled as if he knew that he had the upper hand. “I ‘ll be back soon Creya.” He said as he leaned over and kiss the pulse on her neck.
Adorjan started looking around for wood that would be good enough to stake him.
Leo left them both alone for the moment. Adorjan started to gather wood as if he didn’t keep busy he would explode. He had no right to explode and he knew this, but he could not stop what he was feeling.
“Jan I’ll go get us something to eat. I’ll be right back.” Creya said waiting for a response and all she had gotten was his back. He had been acting like that for days now and she was getting tired of it.
“Okay Jan spit it out.”
“Why are you acting like this?”
“Me acting? No what I am feeling is real.”
It took all of her not to laugh at that. ” Why are you mad at me?”
“Why do you let him touch you like that, all the time?”
“Who? Leo? He’s always been like that.”
“You know he wants you?”
“So? You want him too, then?” He said angrily.
“Jan, just say it already.”
“You want to mate with me.”
“You do. I can smell your arousal for me, for days’ now.”
“Your wrong. I don’t want—“
“What Jan? You don’t want what?”
She waited until he gotten his thoughts together.
“I can not be with you. I might hurt you.”
“Oh you like it rough huh?”
“Just a joke. Relax. I am way stronger than I look.” She walked up to him with his arms filled with wood and stared into his eyes. She began to match her breathing to his and leaned in to kiss him.
“I’ve never– kissed a girl before.” he whispered as she was a hair length away.
“Good, Then you’ll always remember me.” She whispered letting her breath hit is lips. She placed her lips on his, feeling a slight tremble coming from him. She swiped her warm tongue across the seam of his mouth coaxing him to open. Once he relaxed enough, he parted his lips a bit.
Creya captured his top lip with her mouth and sucked on it, then released it. She did the same to his bottom and she felt Adorjan getting the idea as he began to follow her lead. She darted her tongue inside causing him to take a surprised inhale. She proceeded to delve her tongue deeper meeting his. Sensuously playing and tasting.
Adorjan moan into her mouth and continued to kiss her back. The feeling was indescribable. She was holding his neck and the warmth was intoxicating. He wanted Creya. She knew he was lying. He began to feel a slight sting in his gums, but he did not want to stop.
Creya glided her tongue across his teeth and recognized the feel of pointed incisors. She had to stop the kiss. So she pulled back breathing hard and watched Adorjan try to get a hold of himself.
“I’m going to get us something to eat.”
Adorjan nodded as he dropped the wood for the fire, that he had forgotten he was holding. She was about to leave and he couldn’t let her go with out saying something.
“Thank you.” What was wrong with his voice. It was deeper than before.
Creya felt a chill run through her. She had to go. They both are not ready for this. She smiled at him and said, “Welcome.” Then ran off to go hunt.
Leo watched from a distance. He need Adorjan to go the distance. He was stuck in-between adolescent and adulthood and that was holding him back from his power. He knew what he had to do, he just hoped that Creya would forgive him after.
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.”
“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.”
“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.
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.”
“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.
