Aerian slid through another crack in another wall as they had tracked Xulljra one of the abandoned cities, she just wasn’t sure how close they were at this point.
“How the fuck does this happen” She muttered angrily, she had been griping the whole time angry someone had walked right into their home and taken her step sister. “How do you walk into the Mansion with a hundred fucking guards and walk out with a baby? My father’s child!”
She ran her hand along her blade for a moment before she crouched to look at tracks in the dirt, “She knows she’s being followed, or is at least assuming so, trying to lead us in circles,”
Virra was silent while Aerian griped, watching as she squatted down to inspect the ground. Finally she spoke, her voice clear and icy. “Hm. Perhaps, Xulljra, doesn’t even have the child. If she has time to draw us in circles the fact of lending the time to spare on such then she wouldn’t have your step-brother.”
The tracks indeed seemed to lead them in a wide circle, between trees and then disappearing with only a trace again, then heavier footprints. “She is utilizing the trees. Difficult with a child so young.”
“I remember Aishani saying she has two sisters? If they are both in on this, having said that the advantage is still ours, if I were her I would be assuming Dad would come after me, maybe Aishani and Hades as well, she isn’t going to be expecting a retired bounty hunter and her fiancée,” Aerian smiled softly “So for now we have that, There’s nothing to west but the mountains and well Arak’neth has those mountains protected in her absence, South leads back to Dentarius and every guard between us and there are looking for her, so north into abandoned part of he realm, destroyed by the dragons or east toward Elvera,”
“It is possible, though, we don’t have any tracks that are different to back that up. So, for now, all we have is assumptions and that is not what we need.” Virra looked around her, while walking slowly. The new moon offering no light in the forest that was by nature just as dark this time of night. Though, all the wildlife was still and silent, even the nocturnal beasts, it was account of the war or perhaps disturbed recently. Such was difficult to tell.
“Well, we can clearly exclude two of the four options. Now, if I was to meet up with someone, I would definitely not return to Dentarius…so that leaves by gut one option remaining. What was it that your Pops said…she was a master illusionist or something? That could explain the way she was able to enter the mansion undetected and since she technically didn’t kill Stacy that didn’t affect the wards.”
“Didn’t free mom, or try to kill her either, which makes me think my sister was always the intended target, maybe Z’ress plans to replace Aishani or some other whacked out plan, I swear to the gods if they harm her,” Aerian snapped back her hand blocking Virras path as an arrow hit the tree to the side of them “Bitch has help, well that answers that question I suppose”
“I wonder exactly how long, Xulljra has been in the castle…” Virra commented idly, while it appeared the arrow that quivered in the tree didn’t cause hesitation in her thought process. Though, she looked to the arrow now, running a finger over the feathers, then looked into the darkness. She grabbed Aerian by the arm and flung her to the ground, as another slew of arrows screamed over head, the hesitation and pause gave way that it was one archer. “Shit. We are walking into an ambush.” Virra then lowered her hands down to the knives strapped on her legs extending them into a fan on her palms. “They want to play hard…then so be it. I can’t play just as dirty. I know those feathers and that SHITTY AIM! You are trying to draw us into another area, like cattle. We are some fat SOWS!” She hollered.
“You know this asshole shooting at us?” Aerian chuckled, “Knew I should have brought my bow, but didn’t want to get cluttered down, how about I give him something to aim and you go take him down? Try not to kill him, he may be the only way we get answers, if not well then you can kill him or her either way”
“Unfortunately, I do.” Virra nodded briefly, as it appeared she was tense, more so then usual. But, then she dodged out of sight, leaving Aerian to be the bait.
It wasn’t long before a figure appeared, wearing a black hoodie that was not zipped but straps across his chest. Aerian saw black dreads flowing down from beneath the hood, which was shaded enough to not reveal the face of the individual. But, his form was conditioned and muscular, not unattractively so. His hands were gloved, while as on a shoulder rested a bow, with a quiver bound to his back. “She left you? A lamb to the slaughter. I will enjoy this.” His voice was deep, baritone in a rather strong and masculine.
Aerian remained crouched her hand resting on the blade at her back as she watched the figure emerge “She is not bound to me, she cums and she goes, works for us”
Aerian was flippant in her words with a smirk, as she watched him “I suppose you already know that though, and by my guess wondering why they sent me and not my father? Assuming of course your working for the psycho bitch that took my sister,”
“I work for the side that holds the most benefit. Right now, that is the bitch that is even crazier then Z’ress. I won’t lie, she can work wonders with that tight mouth on my cock. But, that is no matter. I have you now, you will be my key to raising in Ceremon’s ranks. You see, after Virra’s father never returned, I took it upon myself to take his place. Only now, there is nothing but ruins remaining. Z’ress and Ceremon can burn in an eternal fire together. I don’t give a shit.” He removed his hood, to expose his features. His skin was copper in hue, as he held high strong cheekbones and hazel eyes, proud lips that would possibly make women quiver. Aerian swore that she had seen individuals like him when she was but a child, yet, could not be sure. It was of the Earthly realm. A Native.
“Oh, shut the fuck up, Domi.” Virra suddenly said, dropping down behind him and drawing a blade over his neck.
He didn’t flinch, nor react other than a smirk forming on his lips. “Ah, Virra… The one girl that refused to give me anything other then a fight…”
Aerian actually looked amused by his words “Your just not,” she rolled her shoulders “Well let’s just say you’re not equipped to handle my girl,” she couldn’t help the chuckle, “So you worked for her dad, tried to get in her pants and got shot down, got hired my head case grandfather, your boss pissed off my step mom and she kinda spilled his blood all over our jail cell floors, quite a bitch to clean up. And then you fall into the employ of Xulljra, who blows you and you aid her in kidnapping my sister, and in the process REALLY pissing off my step mom, and my dad and both are out to kill one or all people involved, your odds my friend do not look good here”
She stopped in though “Did I miss anything baby?”
“Nope. I think you got it all. But, one more thing. You though you used them…but, you are a tool and right now, you are a distraction from Xulljra escaping. You have fulfilled your purpose and now are of no use to them. They could not care less from this point forward, that which happens to you.” Virra pressed the dagger more tightly against his throat, as a sudden realization formed on his face in defeat. “So in all this, you are a loose pawn now. Which side will you choose, Domi?” She parted her lips to drag the slick tongue sluggishly over his cheek, watching Aerian. “What should we do with him, Firefly?”
Aerian drew her own blade as she closed in on him now “I would like to cut his throat and walk away, he did try to put an arrow in our heads,” she spun the blade in the palm of her hand with a smirk “But that makes me no better than him, and my dad is always telling me not to kill unless we have to, so” She placed the blade against his groin and drew it up along his body slowly “If he tells us where she’s going, maybe we can work something out?”
Domi was now between to females, with weapons drawn. One against his neck preventing him from moving while the other was running hers against his frame. He only had one choice and he knew it by the look in his eyes. “She is going back to Ceremon and Z’ress but had to make a detour north to avoid getting caught. I…I can help you.”
“Well that was easy,” Aerian smiled as removed her blade from his body and tucked it away “But just so we’re clear, I have no reason to trust you and Virra apparently really doesn’t like you,” She stopped looking to Virra “He really that bad? I mean he doesn’t look the gentlemanly type, and he did try and put an arrow in you, and not in the good way either”
Aerian squared her shoulders “But either way help us and we will consider letting you go, you never know might even get to see something fun, but try and get us killed, or try to kill us and well I’m sure you can put it better baby,”
Domi appeared relieved at Aerian’s words, even more so after the blade from Virra was removed, his shoulders lessening in tension. Virra spun the dagger in her hand to sheath at her hip, moving to stand beside Aerian. “He wasn’t so bad, we are the same age and he was going through a hormonal stage. Though, he did respect when I told him no, I’ll give him that much. But, right now, he holds information that could be beneficial in getting your step-sister back. You forget, I did attack Ascondia, your father and Aishani before I was drawn in by them. I haven’t looked back, though, it is amusing that Domi is in the same position.”
“We more or less grew up together.” Domi stated, while a smirk formed on his lips. “Oh, I do enjoy fun. But, you want your step-sister. I will help you to get her back, I never cared for their plan in the first place.”
“Yea, does seem a little strange he’s where you were a year ago, but we freely give chances, as long as you prove useful, you can stay with us, once we find Xulljra and my sister you can go where you wish and we wont stop you” Aerian stopped to look at him “Sound fair?”
Domi looked between the two, resolutely sighing. “Doesn’t seem I have much of a choice in it.”
Virra smirked and patted him rather hard in the back, causing him to stumble forward. “Well get to it then.”
Domi cast her a glare then chuckled. “Very well. Follow me. That is if being with an Elcarus hadn’t softened you.” He took off and vaulted into a tree. Waiting for them before continuing north, leading from one tree limb to another. Virra easily kept up with him as our appeared it was a challenge between old comrades.
Aerian didn’t miss a step as well placed foot and grabbing of a branch vaulted her up behind them, staying behind Virra and Domi. There was a grace to each move she made, landing on a branch before leaping to the next, a throw back to hers days a bounty hunter, which for Aerian just made it fun.
Suddenly she extended her stride enough to land within ear shot of Domi “Maybe if you’re a good boy I’ll consider paying you for your help, maybe that will help you feel a little better, not quite a slavers traders wage, but enough to make sure your comfortable, and taken care of in any way you need, I’m not unreasonable I just don’t like people coming into my home and taking what isn’t theirs, makes me very cranky,”
“I didn’t take a damn thing.” Domi muttered while glancing to Virra then spoke clear to Aerian. “We have to be careful. We are nearing their camp and rendezvous point.”
Virra nodded to him, it seemed that she too was enjoying this jaunt through the trees as much as Aerian.
Domi took off again only this time he was more cautious in his sounds and movement through the trees. Until he stopped and lowered himself down to the ground, Virra followed and he pointed to something ahead.
What they saw was a carriage and five soldiers outside. Next was a sight, Ascondia was present with a bundle in her arms and climbing within.
As the sight below unfold Aerian froze, something she hadn’t considered since learning of Xulljra capabilities was that her vision was in fact not implicating her mother at all, she leant back to regain her composure “Jeez you think being able to see the future I would have seen that coming, you know I can’t go down there,”
Her heart hammered in her head as she felt panic rise through her, another thing Aerian was far from accustomed to, but this wasn’t just about her anymore. “But we can’t let them get to Elvera either,”
Virra seemed to register Aerian’s words now, glancing to her then to Domi. “Looks like it is you and me.”
“Like old times. We made a killer pair.” Domi nodded taking position with his bow. The form was expert in the square shoulders and posture and now Aerian saw the gloves specially made for archery.
Virra nodded and began to run at the men around the coach with knives flying, daggers then drawn. Just at that same time an arrow screamed plunging into the drivers neck. Watching it was like an intimate dance, Virra moved with dealt precision and Domi covered her sending arrows after those behind her.
The fight was over just as quickly as it began but no one left the carriage.
Aerian crept closer as she watched the scene below, she knew better than to get close to things down there, at least until Xulljra was in their custody.
Once the fight had ended, Virra went to the carriage to open the door but stopped and stared. Leaning in and what she withdrew was a note and swaddled rock, looking at it confused. Domi tucked his bow into the quiver and joined her with confusion on his face as well. They both left the carriage to hand Aerian the note.
–So close. But not quite.–
Aerian raised a brow in confusion looking to Domi, and then to Virra “How the hell did she slip past three of us?”
Virra inhaled deeply, though, Domi looked to Aerian with his hazel eyes. “Perhaps she was never here to begin with…”
“I saw mum, I saw her, we all did?” Aerian snapped back, her emerald eyes blazed with frustration as she kicked at one of dead soldiers.
Virra went to place a hand on Aerian’s shoulder, in order to seek calming her. Domi moved into the carriage the wood and wheels creaking a slight but then he emerged. “Runes are all over within the carriage…” Just as he spoke, they saw Ascondia go to the open door but she was transparent, appearing to go through a series of repetitive movements. Once within it took a time for the scene to play out once again, that is when Domi closed the door and it stopped. “She is a master of illusion… That bitch tricked me.”
“I’m going to fucking kill her” Aerian snarled angrily as she drew a dagger and launched it into the carriage door, her emerald eyes appeared to be now blazing as she snarled in frustration.
“Calm down Aerian” The figure shimmered in, tall dark haired and a presence about him that drew your attention “She’s not that far ahead, she needed time to set up the illusion and buy of guards to sell out their lives, losing your head is not going to help”
“Haunted? Your supposed to fucking watching over my sister not wasting time!” Aerian barked darkly
“I have my eyes on her, advantages of being dead, now get your ass in gear and get after this bitch before she gets back to Elvera and vanishes behind walls you can’t penetrate, you have a day at best to catch her before you hit an army of dead a hundred and fifty thousand strong that surround the castle on all sides,” Haunted replied firmly. His tone remained level even if the look on his face said he was not used to his neice speaking to him in such a way.
Aerian walked to the carriage as she eyed Domi carefully, before snatching her dagger from the door and placing it back at her hip, “We need a better plan than playing catch up”
Virra looked to Aerian as her act of comfort wasn’t accepted or acknowledged. Though as Haunted came to present, a small smirk appeared on her lips. But by that time Domi was walking away after checking the ground, heading in the direction of Elvera.
Virra then looked to Aerian and took her hand to drag her after her. “We could use the help of unicorns or dire wolves right about now.”
“She’s on foot. Difficult to carry a new born on a horse.” Domi said from ahead, while his backside was rather enticing.
“He’s got a cute butt…” Virra snickered, while trying to lighten Aerian’s mood.
“Who Domi or Uncle Haunted?” Aerian teased in reply, as she watched Domi she felt a sudden urge creep through her, “I think Deshan hunts around here somewhere, she may be able to help, Uncle Haunted mind going and looking for her for us?”
Haunted nodded and vanished into the aether of the realm almost as quickly as he’d appeared, meanwhile Aerian watched Domi once more”Hey Domi, take a look at this,” She called and almost immediately turned into a deep kiss with Virra.
Virra snickered while lowering her hand to curl into Aerian’s, as they walked behind Domi enjoying the view. But as Aerian called to him, he turned to look in their direction expecting clearly that they found something. Instead his eyes grew large in surprise, as a smirk formed on his lips.
Virra fell into the kiss with fervor, in the departure gently she drug her teeth lightly against Aerian’s plump lower lip. Then laughed in the departure, pulling Aerian closer.
The shock melted away to irritation as he flipped them off and began to walk more briskly ahead.
Virra lightly spanked Aerian. “You’re bad…”
“I can be” Aerian replied dangerously, a tease in her voice now as she moved to catch upto Domi “Don’t sulk, I’m just trying to lighten the mood, or hmm maybe I’m just a big tease with bad intentions,”
She stopped as she looked at the sky overhead, one of the rare breaks in the canopy of the forest overhead, “Damn it’s going to be dark soon,”
“What, do you turn into a pumpkin at dark?” Domi chuckled while glancing to her. “I couldn’t give a shits less, what mood you are in. That was just cruel, two beautiful and strong women, making out before me? I can’t lie that made my dick twitch.”
“That’s all it will do. Keep that snake locked away. ” Virra moved to Aerian’s side now, following her gaze upwards, then looked to the red-head, shaking her head with a smirk. “You know, we should really continue to move. We need the upper hand in this, Xulljra doesn’t know the area and will have to camp. Any advantage we can take will have to be exploited the best we can.”
“Was hoping for more than a twitch” Aerian smiled darkly “But anyway we need to slow this bitch down, the best places to put down for the night aren’t so far ahead, Aerian froze now as a pair of eyes appeared in the tree line, a dark amber as they looked at the three.
Finally the pale grey wolf slinked from the forest and made its way to Domi, circling him slowly before moving to Virra, finally closing on Aerian and stopping before sitting infront of her, “Deshan, such drama”
Aerian shook her head with a smile “You find her” the wolf simply ignored her licking its paw for a moment before looking back to Aerian.
“She has a small camp not too far ahead, her and two heavily armed guards, and a baby, which is who you are looking for right?” The wolfs voice was soft and female as she spoke she kept her eye on Aerian.
“My step sister, born to my father and his wife, taken without our consent” Aerian replied softly
“Or knowledge, else why else would you be out here? They know you can track, but even you need help? One smells like you and the other is just lucky to be here?” There was an amusement to her tone now as she spoke.
“He is helping us, me and my fiancée, retrieve my sister, then we plan to end this war,” Aerian replied
“With wolves and dragons and Unicorns the full force of The Everlands thrown against a single city, still that is for another day, we can come through the forest through the dire lair,” Deshan stated softly “She wont see or even smell you coming, you’ll have the advantage and trust me when I say you’re going to need it,”
Virra glanced to Aerian surprise, written on her normally composed features to the mention of more then a twitch. She then chuckled with an amused shake of her head, though, stopped mid-step as the amber eyes appeared from the tree line. A hand on her dagger’s hilts, though, hesitated as the wolf that slunk out appeared to circle Domi, whom actually surpassed Virra and had his hunter’s knife withdrawn. When the wolf plopped down and Aerian spoke, Virra relaxed with a chuckle and Domi returned his knife to it’s sheath.
“Then we don’t have a moment to loose.” Virra commented gathering Aerian’s hand.
“You two are engaged?” Domi stared at Virra and then Aerian, his mouth hung open.
“Oh, close that trap, else you will catch more then bugs…” Virra muttered appearing annoyed by his comment, though, flicking him on the nose in the passing. “Show us the way, Deshan.”
“Stay with me, my pack are hungry and intolerant of those with two legs,” Deshan warned darkly “The dires don’t trust many, so if you stray its on your own head”
Aerian looked at Domi with a smirk before looking to Virra “Better no get ourselves eaten in a less than fun way then,” Every word Aerian said had been deliberate as she drew Virras hand to her lips, the group disappearing back into the forest following Deshan.
Suddenly the ground dropped into low path that disappeared into a darkened cave. As Aerian slowed she looked beyond the cave into the darkness.
“You have a light spell?” Deshan asked as she rounded on them now, Aerian nodded and flicked a small ball of light into the air, Deshan seemingly smiled and again led them on an into the cave. The cave was full of dires, all of them now eying up their visitors.
Domi caught Aerian’s smirk and comment, chuckling while moving to stand near to Aerian. “I like her, Virra.” He said in amusement.
Virra cast him an irritated glance, then to Aerian as the kiss upon her hand caused her to relax. “Keep dreaming, lover boy.”
He simply shrugged while moving with the two women and the dire wolf through the forest, all the while all of them were aware of their surroundings. Once at the drop to the ground, Virra removed her hand from Aerian’s to allow her time to project the ball of light, a faint smirk on Virra’s ruby lips in the flickering shadows.
Once within the cave, the term within a wolf’s den gave new meaning, while they walked through. The sense of prey was thick in the air while the dire wolves watched them with critical and mistrusting canine eyes. Virra returned her hand to Aerian’s, allowing for the creatures to acknowledge their relationship while Domi kept close to the woman. At one point, Aerian felt him bump into her bottom but then a passing hand was upon her cheek, she could tell he had strong hands and rather large, but not freakishly so, such of a man. Virra hissed to Domi at one point, perhaps, he was copping a feel at both.
Aerian growled at his touch, nothing more than a polite tease in response, as the low humof the dires could be heard Aerian pulled herself togther “Alright we’d better knock this game of sexy cat and mouse on the head for now, else we will actually be lunch”
“My pack is hungry, dragons in our skies, it does not make us easy about hunting” Deshan rumbled darkly, the path curved and then began to lead back up, the sound of water ahead told them they would soon be clear of the caves.
“Hunt and eat, the dragons are bound to my father by the laws he set down, they will not harm you or yours, my father has his pact with you and yours as well, we will honour them” Aerian replied softly.
The path dipped and Aerian felt her feet get wet as she groaned “The river?”
Deshan chuckled “A short way, she is camped right on the edge, you will have no further trouble with finding her, I will have a small pack ensure she doesn’t run again”
Virra glanced to Aerian. “You started it.” She chuckled, though glanced down at the water. “Very impressive, Deshan. Tell you what… your wolves are hungry and we are about to kill a bitch. So why don’t we more then help each other out?”
Domi was further away now, but crouched low and pointed. “I smell smoke and see flames in the distance.” He straightened as Virra stood at his side. “Have your pack block any exit but the river, it is harder to cast amidst running water.”
“I really should have brought my bow, could take the bitch out from here and never have to fucking worry” Aerian muttered darkly as she crouched between Virra and Domi, her eyes on the fires ahead.
“You are half-angel and vampire, do you really NEED the bow and arrow?” Virra smacked her on the bottom, while moving forward to utilize a path for the others to follow and tread softly on the water with as little sound as possible. Domi glanced to Aerian with a impish grin, this sparked in his hazel eyes, causing him to be attractive, handing her his bow and quiver.
When they arrived closer, they found the sight of four heavily armored men gathered around a fire with a tent set up not to far. Suddenly a scream shattered the silence, as it appeared to be the cry from a baby, it was panicked and shrill. Inside this tent was a figure moving while rocking something in the arms.
Aerian drew two arrows, knocking them as she crouched on the waters edge, as she let lose the arrows were on target and clean taking two of the guards down the other two further back within the camp had their backs turned and were unaware of the sudden turn in numbers.
Aerian slid up to Virra “Don’t need the bow, I just prefer to even my odds, now how about you and Domi go shut the other two up before they notice the new holes in their buddies heads, then we can deal with the shape changing gutter whore, and go home,” she kissed Virras neck gently.
Virra glanced to Aerian at the kiss to her neck, nipping playfully in her direction. Domi did his best to ignore the interaction between the two but Aerian caught the sideways glance from his eyes. Though, Virra and Domi worked like an oiled machine together, moving silently behind the remaining two men, each slitting the throat of the man with hand over the mouths. Quietly dropping them, and waving in Aerian, still now it seemed as though the screaming from the baby was trying to tell them where she was.
They waved over Aerian now, sights fixed on the tent. Closer there was a figure within trying to coddle the child and silence the cries. Virra and Domi with Aerian snuck to the tent, pushing the flap. Everything happened seeming at once, when they entered Domi cried out in pain and crumbled to his knees holding his head.
Standing in the warm tent was a woman, a female drow. She had snow white hair that flowed beautifully down to her waist, white eyebrows appeared to be drawn on her face while her skin was an incredible shade of black and her eyes were crimson. Upon her was a purple dress that held a slit to the hip on the right side, the scoop neck revealed far more skin then what would deem necessary. The female was stunning, elegant and oozed female prowess. In her arms was a bundle, the golden eyes were wide and frightened, while the small round face was a pale ashen skin tone and the tiny bud shaped lips were open to reveal the horrid pitched sound. “This is beginning to be even more a problem then I had figured…” Her voice was the most alluring thing, a husky tone dipped in honey.
Aerian felt a prickle through her body, she silently squared her shoulders as she knelt beside Domi “Shake it off, we need you right now” her words were soft as she laid a hand on his shoulder a short flicker a electricty darted over him, enough to dull the ache in his head.
“You have my sister, and I am running out of patience,” Aerian stated darkly as she rose back to her feet, “Your sister wants her baby back, funny thing though she said nothing about the state you were to be left in,”
Xulljra remained calm and poised, as the baby squirmed and wailed. Those crimson eyes fixed on Aerian, while Domi was helped to stand by Virra, left panting as her will over him was dulled. Suddenly Xulljra began to laugh, it was cold, cruel even a little maniacal. “You really think, I fear you, child?” She looked down to the babe in her arms. “This infant is an abomination to the bloodline that the House Tor’tar stand for being of the Twelve.”
Virra was too distracted with supporting Domi and it happened fast. She tossed the child and with a force utilized a dork to push a path to escape the tent.
Xulljra was able to push past knocking Aerian who’s attention was on the falling child, a sudden rustle and the air fell deathly cold, as the child’s ascent slowed Aerian was able to pluck the young girl from the air.
As she got to the small infant she smiled softly before handing her off to Virra “You need to hold her right now” she whispered as the hand off occured Aerian buckled to the ground.
Virra accepted the baby, though, before Aerian could fall to the ground she felt a sudden support from behind her with surprisingly strong hands, a look back, Domi was behind her. “Firefly, are you okay?” Virra asked, concern in her voice while leaning forward the infant held her arms out to Aerian. “I think, she likes you.”
Aerian coughed hard as she felt the power drain before she turned with a smile to Domi “Your quick, thanks” She looked to young child now her eyes settlin as she smiled softly.
“I’m OK, I think, same vein as the judgement blade unlike mom I cant stop or reverse or hop through time, but I can slow it just enough to stop a baby from hitting the ground, something about the way mom and dad, damnit I couldn’t explain it if I tried. Except I don’t unless I have to,”she sighed softly “I’ll be feeling that one for a while”
She finally extracted herself from Domis grasp before walking to Virra and her sister, “We should get her home, then we can all rest easier together” Aerian stated gently.
“Well, it seems that she is grateful.” Virra said softly, looking down to the child, those golden eyes were intelligent and the lips formed into a smile and an excited gurgle. She looked to Domi then to Aerian. “Seems, she escaped…”
Domi suddenly adjusted with Aerian in support to sweep her off her feet, held in his arms which were surprisingly solid, hidden beneath his hoodie. “I think, we should cut our losses. At least, your sister is safe.” He said softly, while looking to Virra with a child. “You know, you actually look good like that…”
“Oh, fuck you, Domi.” Virra snapped while her voice was irritated, though, expression softened as the tiny hand clamped upon a finger. “Let’s head back.”
“We ALL?” Domi said with a smirk, clearly utilizing Aerian’s words against her. “I like that idea.”
Virra pushed past the tent flap with a roll of her eyes and shake of her head.
Aerian smirked as Domi reiterated her words, as she sauntered past she stumbled allowing him to glance down the deep valley of her breasts push tightly together by the top she wore, “The baby likes Virra and she kinda likes you, well she hasn’t killed you yet anyway, come on lover boy, we could use the help to end this war”
Domi glanced over his shoulder to Virra’s leave, then to the visual that Aerian presented, licking his lips but swept her off her feet to be held in his arms. “That is the only good thing that is coming.” He said calmly, walking through the tent flap, but he was strong and carried Aerian as though she weighed next to nothing. It was time for the trio to return back to the estate with the infant and Aerian’s sister. Now, in her position held in her arms, she got a good look at him. The strength in his jawline and high cheekbones addition of the copper skin tone, gave him an exotic appearance. There was something different about him, but, the fact that Virra hadn’t killed him meant something.
