[Everything Changes] The Husbands Crimes

Harley made her way through the streets, her eyes drinking in the town she had for so long avoided so much as setting foot within. The houses were thrown together in close succession which made breaking in fairly easy, she found the one owned by the named target and climbed slowly through some scaffolding to peer in the window.

She slid into a crack and looked down onto the street, on time a small thin woman made her way out shouting something back into the house then closing the door and heading off up the street, Harley slid from her hiding place, then to a window, she pulled her knife and eased open the window before tucking the knife away and slipping in to the house.

While Harley made her way through the town, Domi was not far. He kept to the roofs, dressed in dark clothing with soft-soled shoes to keep his silence, she had remained composed thus far and Domi was pleased with this. On the house across the street, he lay down on his stomach, fixed watching within the house.

Harley crept through the bedroom, easing open the door and peering out listening, the house seemed quiet. She made her way back and began peering through various drawers, she was careful as she picked through various items before replacing each where it had been before.

She was so caught up in her search she never heard him approach only realising when he grabbed her hair and dragged her back causing her to yelp.

“What the fuck are you doing in my house,” He barked angrily, dragging her back and pushing her toward the window, his other hand now reaching to further restrain her.

As he grabbed her wrist she spun throwing him clear over her shoulder, his path yanking a chunk of her hair from her head as he fell, as she followed him to the floor, pulling her knife as he hit the ground planting herself on his chest her knife now to his throat “You shouldn’t sneak up on heavily armed women, and on any other day I would have cut your throat, lucky for you those aren’t my instructions so considering you just grabbed a girl by the hair and tried to beat her,”

“You broke into my house? And I’m at fault?” He spat back struggling beneath her.

“Please don’t make me hurt you, because I will and then I have a whole lot of questions to answer, and I don’t want to disappoint Aerian,” Harley sighed darkly as her eyes found his now, there was a coldness within as she looked at him “But if you try anything stupid, I will kill you, but you don’t seem the stupid kind,”

Harley slid back and stood to offer her hand, as he took it he pulled her, causing her to stumble, her head snapping off the window frame and she passed out.

The actions that followed after Harley’s head struck the window frame were quick. Domi appeared in the open window, catching her before her body hit the ground. His dark eyes fixed on this man, while the squat jar and long black hair were pulled back. “We are not here to steal. Though, why we are you should be concerned.” He easily scooped Harley up in his strong arms to place upon the bed, turning to face this man. “We have been hired to investigate, infidelity. What do you have to say about such?”

“So my wife sent the cute redhead to see if I’d jump into bed with her?” The man shook his head with a cold chuckle “And then she pulls a knife? And yet I’m in the wrong here? How does that work? It’s my home and I defended myself against an armed intruder, I’m sure our lawmakers will see I have done no wrong? My wife is a stubborn woman, and I do apologise for harming your poor girlfriend, but my wife has no proof of any wrongdoing and simply wishes to take my children and my home from me, I am a faithful man good sir, but my wife seems to lack the desire in the bedroom so to speak, so on occasion I will pay to serve my needs,”

“On the contrary, we have not stolen or harmed you. She merely defended herself, after all, you are a very large man in comparison. Needless to say, why do things lack in the bedroom between you and your wife? Is that the reason she wants to take everything from you? Because you go to the bed of another when you should fix the issue at home instead?”

“She doesn’t like sex, it’s a chore to her, one to add to feeding and cooking and all the other things a woman does each day, while I tend to horses and ensure the horses get to the relevant stables, she does not enjoy the act and I am rather fond of it,” He shrugged in reply now as he stared at Harley and the river of blood that now soaked into her hair “So who did my wife hire to end my life? And why am I not dead if that was girls’ intent?”

Domi already had busied himself with trending to Harley’s injured head, cleaning it up with a cloth and binding it tightly to stop the bleeding. “We do not believe in straight killing. There is a side to every story, we investigate each. I do not understand a woman that does not enjoy sex. But to turn it around as she has, there is no wonder. She will not have expected us to investigate. Though I need something from you. I need the name of a woman that you have slept with and the name of the establishment. I assume this lady of the night knows the reason you sought them out.”

“They take the money, and they spread their legs, it’s a fairly simple concept so I believe she is aware of my reasons, but Amber of the Mouldy Shark should be able to inform you of our dealings,” He replied flatly.

Harley groaned as she stirred the world coming into focus as she mentally checked herself before looking to Domi “What, where did you come from? Holy crap what hit me?” she breathed sharply feeling the pain that splitting at her head “You’ve spent more time patching my sorry ass up than anyone else in our group,”

The man simply stared at her as he looked from her Domi his nerve now clearly shaken as he stepped back toward the door.

Domi chuckled looking to Harley, “that I have.” He moved over to support her in a ride, taking his time to allow Harley to gather her bearings. “We’ve gotten information, it is time to move on to the final part of our investigation. Time to go to the Mouldy Shark.”

Harley looked to the man with a dark smile “Don’t go running, I hate having to chase a kill, makes me all kinds of cranky, and this you get for free, but if we come for you, I won’t be so nice,” She leant into Domi as they made their way from the house.

 

Aerian leant in Virra kissing her cheek gently as they made their way into the tavern, the Mouldy Shark was dark and dingy, the smell of sweat and beer ran rampant enough to throw Aerians stomach as she swallowed down the feeling in her gut. Silently they made their way to corner table as they settled a thin wiry woman made her way toward them.

“I’m .. um that is to say my name .. are you my contact?”

Virra scooped Aerian to settle in her lap, while fingers idly traced the fiery woman’s abdomen. Together,h a silent reminder of their current state, she kissed Aerian’s neck with a nibble to her lobe just as the wiry woman arrived. Perching her chin on Aerian’s shoulder drinking her in with a gesture to the empty chair. “Yes. I have things to do. So let’s keep this short and to the point. You know your husband is cheating on you. Why? Why would he do such?”

“My husband has grown tired of our life, he seems to have acquired the thought a woman’s place is on her knees before him, a servant to his whim, and lately he goes out late spends the evening with a woman, I do not blame this woman he can be charming when he wants something but my husband has broken his vows. But should I try to take a more legal route he will take everything from me and I will be left with nothing, I cannot allow that, not to the likes of him,” The woman spoke quickly but there was uncertainty in her voice as she stared at the lovers.

“So he is simply with another woman and you do not wish to lose your home? Hiring a contract killer is a little overkill, but hiring us? That is another level of hatred you know that right. We don’t tend to play nice, your husband disappears into the wind and you have nothing left but the guilt of knowing you’re the reason he’s gone?” Aerian replied softly “But truthfully I do not see sufficient cause to intervene, there are plenty of contract killers that will do this for you, leave quite a mess to clean up but for us, I don’t see a reason,”

“Please miss, I wanted the best, my husband, his demands are I serve at all times, to drop my panties whenever he desires, an act that is for lovers not because one or the other merely seeks to get off, my children will be left with this man, my daughter will likely end up a slave or I fear worse,”

Virra watched her, while a hand snuck to cup one of Aerian’s mounds this was slow and deliberate to cause more unease to the woman. “Do you love him? Let me elaborate, did you love him ever in your marriage? Perhaps he has money and could provide.”

“I did for a long time, and he loved me, but time has taken its toll, I no longer find pleasure in sex and I think he resents me for that. It’s not easy to deal with him, but he has his ways now. He seems intent to ensure we bow to him, I am a slave to him, not a wife,” She sighed deeply “But I did love him, I do love him, just not as I should,”

“Then you cannot find fault in the fact that he searches out others to relieve his sexual tension. Much better than to force it upon you.” Virra said calmly, lowering her hand. “You speak of love as though it shouldn’t be. He is your husband, of course, there are things you may not wish to do but make him happy in doing so. Vice versa. This to me is no reason to put him to death. But we will meet with the others to see if the stories coincide and go from there.”

“I would agree we have no grounds to intervene, we don’t just kill because we are paid to do so, no matter the rumours about us, The Ever Present is the balance between the law and lawless, we step in when the law cannot act but the guilty must feel the bite of justice. I would like to help you truly I would, you could take your children and you can leave anytime you wish, based on what we know he cannot prevent you doing so, your fear is been homeless but that we can fix,”

The woman stared at Virra then Aerian “I would be an outcast, you know marriage in the Everlands is binding to break that I would be worth nothing, my children would be nameless and forgotten,”

“In almost every city in the Everlands yes, save a few, Dentarius being one, my father has never seen a family on the streets, he wouldn’t allow it, there would be work too, money to pay your own way and your husband would be an idiot to chase you,”

“Unless your father is Kane Elcarus then running to Dentarius would serve me about as well as remaining with my faithless husband,” She snapped coldly, frustration creeping into her words now.

Virra intervened before Aerian could speak further. “The choice is yours. We have given you options. It is not your place to question. So what will it be? The chance to start over or be condemned to a life of unhappiness? A fate that may doom your children.”

“And when he follows? To take my children?” The woman sighed softly

“He will have to answer to Dentarian Law, which thankfully is its own separate from the rule of the Everlands. Times are changing my mother has the crown to herself no more High Council placing the power with the wealthy or the self-serving, in time no one will need to fear their homes being taken because a marriage just doesn’t work. As for right now, I told you we are very good at making people disappear, and it won’t be long before I have the final information on your husband and we leave. You were to pay a small fortune to kill your husband now I’m offering you a better use for that money,” Aerian replied softly “The Ever Present is the balance between truth and justice, if your words are the truth then we will serve justice, you have a day to think,”

Aerian paused as she saw Domi and Harley enter the tavern, before looking to Virra and nodding to them, “Will you excuse us for a moment,”

When Aerian stood Virra patted her bottom and then joined the other two, kissing Domi. Though noticed the bandage on Harley’s head, incoming a brow but for the moment left it unmentioned. “What have you found?”

Domi shifted his weight looking to the table where the woman sat. “It seems both are unhappy in their marriage. He went to other means because his wife doesn’t enjoy sex. I see no reason to take a life.”

“Nor do we, seems like they are in different places and simply cannot find common ground, but what the hell happened to you?” Aerian stated looking to Harley

“Oh, nothing, I was looking through his stuff he jumped me, cracked my head open, left me unconscious, but he’s still alive, he said we’d find some girl called Amber who could vouch for his actions, which led Domi and me here,” Harley replied with a shrug “He’s a slimy bastard, and I wouldn’t trust him with a pet fish let alone a family, are you sure we shouldn’t kill him?”

Aerian didn’t reply simply looked to Domi “So we’ll keep the wife here, while you speak to this Amber chick? Then we can make a final decision?”

Domi nodded, glancing at Harley. “Come on, girl.” He said, catching her arm, guiding her to the bar, leaning over to tap the top to attain the tenders attention. “Looking for Amber.”

The barmaid looked up “She’s in room 4, up the stairs,”

Harley smiled and nodded before leading Domi off and up the stairs.

 

Amber was laid out on the bed as she stared at Harley and Domi entering “It’s extra for a threeway darlen, though the fellas kinda cute, or does he just wanna watch?” She rolled onto her side with a smile the dress that held every curve struggled to follow her movement as she looked at Harley “Or is it you that want’s to watch darlen? Either deal is fine with me but it’s an extra twenty per cent on whatever they told you downstairs,”

Domi closed the door behind him. “While you are a pretty thing, I’ll have to decline, my heart is to two stunning women. We here about a client of yours. Before you start with you can’t, his life lays at your feet.”

“I see, well that comes with a price as well, a lady shouldn’t kiss and tell, not good for business,” Amber replied softly watching Harley carefully.

“Andreas Whitewind” Harley stated firmly

“Slimy prick, likes to slap me around call me his wife’s name,” She smiled darkly “Lucky for me he doesn’t last very long,”

Domi considered Amber, removing a rolled up parchment and pencil. “Can you write an anonymous witness of character? Any other girls witness to this or just you? Compensation will be in order, do not worry, your name will never be brought up or any others. I can assure you.”

Amber sat slowly her eyes watching Domi calmly as she thought on his words before she took the parchment, “Every girl here has had dealings with him, after the last incident they sent him to me exclusively,” She smiled revealing the fangs beneath “We vampires can heal much quicker, Linnie was hurt pretty bad by his antics, broken arm, ribs, and bruising that took weeks to go down, we are a substitute in his words so he doesn’t harm his wife, he gets off on the pain,”

Harley shuddered as Amber spoke her eyes closed as she sighed softly “You’d almost believe he loved his wife in that case, though doesn’t excuse his behaviour women are property to him, to be used in whatever fashion he sees fit,”

“He talks about her, in a good way, she takes care of the house and the children but the bedroom that is a different story,” Amber replied softly “He only seeks to serve his needs, the women are irrelevant, though this is true of most men,”

“Most men. Not all.” Domi commented, hesitating for a moment. “I do realize, not all the women will speak to us. Could you pass this witness of his behaviour around for the women place their experiences? Yes, I agree. No one deserves such ill-treatment. Even if it is a profession. This is considered battery and assault.”

“Beginning to think I should have just killed him when he attacked me,” Harley muttered coldly before she smiled softly “We’ll be in the bar for a little while longer, once you have the information we will get it to the people it needs to be with, but I can promise he won’t be bothering you again,” She looked to Domi before she made her way to the door and then back out into the bar.

The girls had returned to the booth with the wife and were now in conversation as Harley made her way toward them.

Domi watched Harley carefully, though spoke nothing. Upon returning to the table, Domi spoke first. “It is best that you go into protective custody within Dentarius walls. You and the children.”

Virra looked from Harley to Domi. “Very well. What do you say?” She looked to the woman.

“I take it there was a development?” Aerian asked looking to Domi

“Yes,” Domi said calmly, as he settled down at the table. He looked to the wife for a moment, then to Aerian and Virra. “There has indeed. It is best that we get this woman and her children to safety. Her husband is a ticking time bomb.”

Aerian contemplated Domi’s words for a few minutes, as she settled back into Virra “I think we will need to have strong words with him, while assassination still isn’t required he needs to be warned going after them is a bad idea, and that we will be watching him from here on out.”

“We should kill him, he is a risk to any woman he comes into contact with, he is a danger Aerian he beat a girl half to death because he didn’t want to beat his wife,” Harley sighed softly as she stared at the woman before them.

“Oh he’s hurt me before now, while we were intimate he would get violent, then he would apologise and I would forgive him until I learned he wasn’t going to stop hurting me so I avoid sex when I can,” The woman replied softly.

“No. Harley, I’ve seen men like this. His crime is violence against women. This is punishable by death but in the means of the law. He is a loose cannon, our priority is the safety of his wife and children.” Domi stated. “We are gathering evidence from witnesses. This is all needed to incarcerate him.”

“Is it really? I hate to say this, but, I in terms agree with Harley. He won’t stop.” Virra commented.

“Need I remind you, we are the law when the law won’t step in? Now, that being said, the law hasn’t been made aware of his crimes. She wanted him dead because he was cheating not because of abuse.” Domi growled it was clear he was losing his cool, Aerian has never seen such.

“Fine. We need to get you to Dentarius. Leave anything you don’t need behind.” Virra responded to Domi’s frustration. “In the law or without. You need a new life.”

“We will arrange transport, be ready by noon tomorrow,” Aerian stated firmly watching the woman before she turned to Domi “We will take what evidence we have and turn it over to the authorities, but make sure we have a second copy sent to my father, I suspect he will follow her and when he does I want the evidence in my father’s hand to remove him from the picture as quickly as possible, but I’m sure another visit from us will perhaps stay his hand for now,”

“Thank you, truly,” The woman stated softly before moving from her seat and heading out of the door. Harley watched her leave before lowering her head “I see why you won’t act, but neither will the authorities here, as long as he doesn’t kill anyone they won’t care, and he’s been stupid but not reckless, even this place handed him off to vampire to ensure no one ends up dead.”

“And if he chooses to go after them we will act, my father, doesn’t settle for violence against women, or endangering a child, he will find the inside of a dentarian cell quicker than he can strike a woman, his crimes are horrid but they still don’t justify murder,” Aerian replied calmly though there was an edge in her words.

“So what he’d have to hit the damn kids before you act? This is what we are to become, we’ll steal and we’ll play the cards we have but hey beat a woman, rape your wife and we’ll sit idly by?” Harley growled angrily

“If he had harmed the children then we would act, but Harley, he is harming other women whom he sees as less because they are working girls, and he is harming them to avoid harming his wife, it’s a bad situation we don’t need to make worse if we kill him then she will suffer and so will the children, how is that better for them?” Aerian replied softly

Virra scooted Aerian off her lap, kissing each, Aerian and Domi. “I’ll keep watch over her this evening. Her husband will not take kindly to our known presence…I’m not willing to put her in danger, nor her children. You, Domi and Harley, stay would he return to raise his hand to another working girl. I’m the most stealthy to be a silent guard,”

“Just be careful baby please, the rest of us will prepare to have her moved and get our information into the right hands, we will see to her safety from him in the future,” Aerian added as she stood beside them.

[Everything Changes] Leadership By Example

“Aerian!” Harley snapped as she shook Aerian, as Aerian stirred, she groaned seeing her eyes focus on the young redhead.

“What?” She murmured softly before beginning to untangle herself from Virra and Domi.

“There’s a messenger at the door, he has the new contracts, it is down to you now,” Harley replied softly. Aerian stared at Harley for a moment before her brain caught up she was still naked.

“Oh stop it!” She snapped softly climbing out of bed and retrieving her clothes as she dressed, Harleys eyes never left Aerian even from the back.

“I’ve missed you, every day since you left,” The tremor in her voice was evident as Aerian pulled on her tunic, followed by her pants and boots, strapping her boots and then straightening.

“Well I’m back now, so relax and keep your hands to yourself,” Aerian replied with a grin.

“I won’t.” Aerian felt the strong hands of Domi at her hips with a kiss to her neck and lobe. Domi chuckled for a moment but soon after released Aerian, moving to dress as well, those peppering of hickies on his giving question of his health.

“Just were the hell are you two going?” Virra’s cold voice chimed in, sitting on the edge with her bandaged thigh and that was all. “Domi help me get dressed. Whatever you all go I go.”

Domi moved to gather the skirt and top for her, while cane in hand, rising ready to join the group.Aerian slipped back to help dress Virra as well, kissing the back of her neck softly “The new contracts are here, and we need to decide who gets them, maybe this will help calm things down?”

“Keep minds occupied.” Virra nodded rising with her cane.

“I couldn’t agree more.” Domi said. “Well let’s do this.”

Aerian kissed her cheek with a smile then headed out of the door, as they walked down the hallway Harley had re-joined them with a parcel of files in hand, she handed them to Aerian and then made her way to the main room. Aerian tossed the pile on the desk and dragged a chair for Virra to sit.

Virra sat down, shifting in her chair while looking at the files. “Damn…that’s a lot.”

Aerian flicked through them quietly as she watched the rest of The Ever Present file in and wait on her, most were standard thievery contracts, she placed those aside as she glanced at another beneath a hired hit on a deceitful husband, Aerian stared before turning it to Virra and Domi “And this is where we start changing the opinion, he may be a deceitful prick but I see no reason for him to die?”

Domi glanced to the hired hit, considering it for a moment. “I see. There is usually a second story and it needs to be handled on both ends.”

Virra nodded to him. “I agree, he may be slime. But we won’t know for sure, we aren’t murderers. The change starts now. With this.” She tapped the paper. “Who we sending?”

“If this is going to be a hit then it should be us to follow up on it, leadership by example,” Aerian replied softly “If we handle it and deem it unworthy of our time, at least we know it won’t be carried out, if there’s a good enough reason I’m sure Domi can handle it at a distance?”

Virra looked to Domi then to Aerian with a nod. “Not entirely sure, I should be going on account if my leg…” There was a frustration in her voice now, which caused Domi to place a hand over hers.

“Don’t cut yourself down. You’re healing nicely, I should be able to remove those bandages tomorrow with it reapplying. The limp will need to be worked in but it won’t remain.” Domi assured her.

“We have this covered, we’re in no rush, and this may be the only one we can do on account of,” She waved a hand over her stomach with a smile “I’d just rather we know this one is handled right and sets the precedence moving forward,”

Aerian placed the rest of the contracts on a small stand before them with a smile tapping them “Lots of money to be made, plenty of small thievery jobs, grab one, do the job and report back, fifty per cent in the pot, 50 per cent to yourselves,” The group looked among each other before coming to grab the contracts, there was no rush or argument each took the one at the top and made their way off.

Harley looked at Virra then Aerian “What about me?”

Virra looked to Domi and Aerian. “We all can’t go. Someone needs to remain behind to stand charge. Who should that be?”

Domi shrugged. “You come with us, I want to see your control since you have a blood lust.”

Aerian remained quiet as she watched the group “Serah can watch over things, a sign of good faith that despite our earlier disagreements I have as much faith in her as anyone else,”

Serah looked up from her contract and nodded “Yea, sure, I guess, but someone will need to take care of this one,” she tossed the contract back on the pile “I’ll play boss and hold the fort, so long as you don’t take another decade or two for you to come back,”

“She won’t.” Virra stated casually, learning back in her seat.

Domi stood now, looking to Serah. “Trust us, give that a chance. You’ll see.” He posted her in the shoulder, then turned to assist Virra in standing.

Virra punched him hard in the shoulder. “Knock it off I’m not ivalid.” Then stood without use of the cane but faltered, holding a hand up to warn anyone from helping her. She then left the hall to return to the bedroom.

Domi sighed, as he rubbed his shoulder. “She’s still got it. I’ll gather the tools to remove the stitches. Then we will be on the way. She’s tough and doesn’t like to be put down or viewed as incapable. Thanks to her Pops.”

“And yet she wouldn’t take it from me,” Aerian muttered darkly before nodding to Serah and following after Virra, as she leant in the doorway of their bedroom she watched Virra for a few minutes before she spoke, “If I were in your place, you’d be giving me all kinds of hell about not trying to do it on my own, so the first sign I see your injury is a problem you’re getting help whether you want it or not, or I swear to the twelve I will tie your ass down until you’re fully healed,” there was a tease in her voice and yet a seriousness all in the same as she smiled softly.

Virra glanced over her shoulder sharply to Aerian, after laying out her clothing and weapons to wait for Domi. “Fuck that. You’ll have a fight in your hands, Firefly. I ask fine, yes…this limp is irritating. But I trust Domi that it will not remain forever. I’m just glad that it was me instead of you.”

“It was intended to hurt me just as much, she knew what she was doing,” Aerian replied softly, “We’re targets on behalf of each other, we know that, I’m just glad Domi reacted before I did, or worse she had chance to take a second swipe at you, but your my baby so that means I’m gonna wrap you all up and keep you safe til you’re better” Aerian smirked softly “Whether you want me to or not,”

Virra sighed, defeated to Aerian’s words, extending a hand to invite her close. Once she was, Virra popped Aerian into her lap, positioning the red head to face her. Pressing her lips firmly against her own in a deep passionate kiss.

Aerian sighed deeply into the kiss before her arms wrapped around Virra, her response just as deep and passionate, her hands massaging against the back of Virras head, before breaking for a moment long enough to whisper.

“You’re my strength, just as I’m yours, and with Domi we can do anything,” Before returning to depth of a passionate kiss.

Virra’s hands roamed up and down Aerian’s back, just as a throat was cleared in the doorway. Looking out was Domi holding a small metal plate with some medical tools. He was leaning on the frame watching them with a smirk. “I could watch this for hours.”

Aerian glanced up kissing Virra deeply once more before shifted a little “Shame we don’t have hours to show you then, she has promised to behave or I get to tie her up,” Aerian chuckled softly before she slid back from Virras lap to allow Domi in.

Domi chuckled entering the room and closing the door behind him, settling down to begin to work on the stitches. “Glad to hear it. Now hold still, my dark angel.” He worked carefully and with intent, the stitches removed.

“Ah. Feels so much better.” Virra sighed, leaning down to kiss him, then to Aerian. “Well let’s get ready to leave. Got work to do.”

Aerian made her way to the desk, pulling parchment and writing quickly, her eyes remained as she thought her words through, finally rolling it and sealing it with wax and The Ever Present seal. She smiled for a moment then made her way to the door and a guard.

“Take this to,” She pulled her contract to look at the name and show the guard “Tell her if she wants this contract to be carried out then she is to meet our groups representatives at the time and location contained within this document, it is for her eyes only, once you are done return here to aid Serah in maintaining order,”

The guard nodded and then taking the note headed out to carry his instructions, before Aerian turned to face Virra and Domi “A small tavern by the docks here, we can then discuss her reason while Harley goes and does the background check on the husband, this is our best approach right?”

Virra pulled Aerian into her lap, bubbling in her lobe. But Domi remained in contemplation for a moment, but soon his head. “I’m going to follow Harley, keep my distance. She has to know that she will be followed. This is her chance to prove that she isn’t a loose cannon. I will step in if needed. Besides, a woman and cheating husband, she would be more willing to open up to women.”

“Or kill the man simply if she suspected him,” Aerian replied leaning into Virra with a soft sigh of content, “She will be OK, I have faith in her even if others find it hard, we just have to keep her away from mindless murder,”

Domi seemed hesitant, though, nodded slowly after a moment. “We can only hope your trust is sound. Let’s begin then. Time to head to the tavern.”

Virra nudged Aerian from her lap with a brief kiss and playful pat to her bottom. Her cane was grabbed but she didn’t use it, as her limp was present but she fought against it. Perhaps with time she’s new white the impairment.

[Everything Changes] Early Morning Riser

Hades stretched before groaning the position been sat while laid back had taken its toll as he shifted awkwardly. He shuddered feeling the cool air creep around him as she slowly stood feeling bones crack and pop in response to the awkward position. Quietly he made his way to the window peering out, it was still early and yet still dark outside.

His attention was drawn by sounds from the bedroom, as he strained to listen it wasn’t hard to work out what was going just beyond that door, he shook his head and continued to watch out of the window, “The sooner this is done the better,” He mused softly and keeping his voice low.

Initially Jade only stirred when Jades had stood, though, now he smelt the heavenly presence of cherry blossom behind him. Jade had moved to stand at his side, though glanced to the door. “I’m surprised, Ascondia goes both ways? Now I see where Aerian gets it. At least they could be a little quieter.” She sighed, curling a hand within his while shifting her gaze out the window. “Our time is limited here, my beloved…”

“Ascondia takes her comfort where she finds it,” He stated softly before drawing her close and resting his head upon her head his arms wrapping around her waist gently “Hopefully we will be done here quickly, once we get a lead on Kara we can go get her and take her home, though I won’t lie I would like to see who she really is, a sister we have no knowledge of how does that even happen, even in The Everlands,”

“I am not sure, but we were meant to be here. In this realm, perhaps…we should take advantage of it? Surely once isn’t enough…” Her hands lifted to caress over his forearms, it was more than clear to the implication in her words. The reflection in the mirror displayed the yellow glowing in her eyes, almost as though beckoning that demon to come forth.

“Well our dear queen is occupied” He teased in reply, it then it hit him as he took her hand and quietly led her from the cabin, closing the door quietly before leading her away the air was cool, and damp yet the scent of nature was around them, quietly he led her to the edge of the lake before turning her to him, his hands now caressing her jaw and cheek before he leant to kiss her deep and passionate.

Jade smiled, it was sly and mischievous. Without hesitation she allowed Hades to lead her from the cabin into the forest. Nothing was as important as him, her eyes fixed on him with the yellow flicker. She watched him as he watched her, though, responded to the kiss with as much depth. Her fingers working the fabric away from her until the kimono was shrugged off and pooled around her ankles. That collar catching the light just right to display the only article upon her.

Hades drank her in as that glow in his eyes returned the predator in him “Let’s make it fun,” His words were cold and drained of any emotion as he let his hand trace over her skin before moving away “Run!” it was clear his intent was to hunt her, another game for them.

Jade looked to him, while her eyes glowed yellow in response to the demon, his predator rising to the surface. Breathing growing deeper, at his words, Jade turned on her heel and darted into the forest with no location in mind. This was the times she savoured, his darkness.

Hades gave her a short start then took off into the forest himself, the demon in him easily able to track her on the wind, the race of his heart as the dark intent ran through every fibre of himself. Instinct led him through the trees and the scent of his lover drove him forward, it didn’t take long for him close the distance and even less time to end his hunt. He shot through the undergrowth his hand catching hers as he spun her into him before forcing her into the damp ground, one hand blocking the back of her head hitting the floor the other already crushing against the flesh of her breast, his eyes flickered dark now the usual emerald green all but disappeared among the darker hidden demon.

Jade was surprisingly fast, though, it appeared nothing could out run the determined demon that sought control. He was almost within a fraction of a second too late to grasp her hand but managed.

Now on her back his dark eyes meeting that of her yellow, growling and moaning to the grasp of her bosom, clear that he was determined to claim her. A fox like grin appeared on her lips with the glisten of her incisors. She nipped in his direction, while grasping his hand to silently demand for him to let the demon out without fear.

His eyes were locked upon hers as his leant to bite the flesh of her breast, it was hard as his nails now raked along her thigh, each move deliberate a need to inflict pain and yet provide pleasure. His other hand continued to kneed the flesh of her breast with force, the weight of his body now pinning her to the cold damp ground.

Jade shivered as the cold blanket of the ground was beneath her, pinned underneath his weight. Her pale flesh displayed the travel of his fingers in red lines. She growled in response to the bite at her tender and sensitive bosom, conflicted with the pain and pleasure. Her aura throbbed faintly with the sensual presence of the fox, her hands lifted to urge him to feast more upon her mound, pushing him to release all that the demon held.

He shifted his position now kicking out of the pants that prevented him from been closer, followed quickly by his shirt before pressing back against her, warmth of her flesh against his made him hungry, a flash in the skies above was quickly followed by rain causing him to growl as he returned to his assault, biting her flesh repeatedly her breasts and over her stomach and shoulders.

While not spoken it seemed that her body sighed at the physical contact, instead of the cold ground his body warmed her like a blanket. The force of his hunger caused marks upon her body, which would likely leave bruises against her skin. Now her hands rose to choose into his back with her nails, this only served to leave her own meals bit fed the demon in him. As her sounds increased, primal with the need to mate, the power that surged from her only have the instinct that he was in control of a powerful creature.

His hand wrapped against her throat with a dark look pressing against the collar and removing her air for a few moments as he restricted her ability to breath he positioned himself, releasing his grip on her and driving deep into her with force enough to shift them in the dirt.

Jade looked up to him, those stunning yellow eyes blazing now, as her sounds were muffled against the grip of her throat. A hand lifted to close against his own wrist, but not to remove the grasp, only to tighten it more. After he released she gasped to the fill of her lungs, growling in that guttural sound of pleasure as his tool sunk, unforgiving and demanding into her tight passage. His entry was easy due to the drooling flower that was already saturated by the rough housing.

Her hands returned to his back, which was nose growing raw, clawing his flesh and kneading with a kitten like precision at the back of his thigh. This gave him the mixture he desired of the pain and pleasure, while her silken folds tightened around him in such a way only Jade knew how.

There was nothing gentle in Hades now his hand wrapping into her hair and yanking it back as he drove into her with long violent thrusts, the demon in full control now as it was for pleasure and a hunger that drove his hips against hers the resounding slap echoing through the air around them, his mouth continuing to bite and nip her flesh now closing in on her nipple, nipping hard against the sensitive flesh.

Jade snarled to the pull of her hair, the passage tightening in reflex around his sunken tool in her treasure. A howl parted her lips to the bite at her bud, those glorious canines exposed now to the angle. Since she couldn’t move her head by the reigns, the aura of the Kitsune grew stronger until the orange was a transparent visage over her physical form, those yellow eyes now coming to life with a fire. Jade clawed at his back, Hades felt that blood rise in the warmth in his skin. Just then the thunder growled and the rain began to fall upon their bodies. Such heat was in contrast on their skin that it steam began to rise, the harder he bit the sweet essence of blood flooded his pallet.

The hunger drove him now as he withdrew from her biting the flesh of her thigh and then over her stomach before he pulled her up and pushed her over, now behind her his hand struck the flesh of her ass with a resounding clap, a crack of thunder seemingly in reply before he bit the flesh, then drove back into her with the same hungered force, his nails driven down over her back before returning the same violent strokes of before.

She gasped as the hair was free, though before Jade could react she was on her stomach. Bending up on her knees to display her dripping flower, holding as those teeth bit her flesh again. The red marks leaving trail in her back and a growl to the smack, while caused her bottom to juggle. The violence in the way he took her was greedy but animalistic. She bucked back against him, displaying her need and depth, that furious member bursting past her pearly gates into her womb. This nearly seemed too much, losing the support of her elbows and reaching behind to spread her cheeks to display his manhood plunging into her, each time was met with the splash of her saturated ground. The rain now came harder, as it appeared to react to her clamp on his tool and those glorious juices off her climax that took control.

As her release struck he growled plunging deep into her with a hungered force, his manhood swelling before unleashing his seed deep into her, a growl ripped from him so deep and raw, he held within her until every drop had been delivered, though remained just as hard, as looked her over the exposure of her hands separating herself for him suddenly sent a shudder through him, easing back from within her, as he eyed the hidden starlet his hand helping to reposition, before pushing against her now,.

She whimpered at the force of his release within her ground, her flower thriving against him greedily add her womb took the entire flood.

When the shift happened, the sweet pucker tighter than her own flower, she howled as no adjustment was found before the target was made. Now the sight of her dripping flower with the mixture and three way her body latched upon his was inviting.

His hand reached to slid his fingers against the wetness, the mixture of them was intoxicating before his hips edged back short shallow thrusts each time allowing him to penetrate her further until he was now deep within her, his fingers moved to pinch and flick against the swollen pearl for a moment before he straightened his hand taking hers and pushing it to her heated core, it was now he began to ease back a little.

Jade growled to the punch if his fingers upon her plump pearl this only created more juices to flow. This pain mixed with pleasure, she enjoyed greatly. Now with his guidance, she penetrated herself with a shudder. Hades could now feel the brush of her hidden fingers through the veil, maddeningly intoxicating fit both her and him.

As she adjusted to him his rhythm began to build, steadily growing quicker and more powerful with each thrust until he able to return to the same violent rhythm of before his hands now gripping her hips and each time he drove into her would force her back against driving him that little bit deeper.

She howled in delight, the feeling of her fingers grew more and more quick, that is when the speed if his own began to cause her legs to tremble and it appeared as though Jade was about to collapse. He heard and smelt the power of each release as it reflects in her back passage, it seemed that this double penetration was arousing her quite thoroughly. The sound she made were a mix of primal and pleasure, finally the hand left her flower to claw into the dirt, her muscles twitching as she fell forward with shoulder dig into the ground. But against each pound she thrust him deeper into she couldn’t keep up and howled his name. Again and again the rush flowed like a geyser.

As Jades release struck Hades drove into her with a guttural growl, his hands landing flat and hard against her hips as he again delivered his seed deep into her, his whole body shuddered with force against hers.

Jade lay now with her cheek against the ground, panting and crooning, he saw a faint bruise forming on her bottom and the light of the Kitsune fade. Her body was economic sound him now, hips the only part of her hoisted, torso and shoulders downward. The rain continued to fall, a light mist now that gave a halo around their bodies. Jades skin was blotched with patches of red as she was coming down from her high. Her shape was divine from this angle with wide hips and the skin was too her legs.

His hands slid up her inner thighs gently before he slowly removed himself from her to sit on the now rain soaked forest floor, the cool barely even notable within their bubble of warmth, he placed a kiss against her bare bottom before helping her to his lap, now kissing her once more.

The shift into his lap, revealed the bite marks that speckled her breasts, to the sides and one deep and dark on her bud. Some in her shoulders and even her stomach, she looked beaten but it didn’t seem to phase her. Jade lifted her head from his chest to lift a hand to cup and bring his lips down against hers in a tender and loving kiss. When parted her exotic brown almond slanted eyes were fixed in his with a softness and affection.

He returned the kiss, now content to remain with her as the rain fell upon them, before finally kissing her and helping her stand picking up his now soaked clothes he chuckled softly. They made their way back toward the cabin as he eased open the door and peered within. The kitchen and room still empty they crept in, he tossed his clothes by the fire and pulled a spare sheet around himself, Jades, kimono still on the table where they had begun.

She moved to cuddle with him beneath the blanket, shivering. Such could be because she was cold or the powerful moment, quite possibly both. Nuzzling into his neck followed by a yawn.

[Everything Changes] Triage and Love

There was a commotion that woke Aerian as she stretched and rolled out of bed, she made her way into the hall a group was closing in on Harely who was on the ground and looked to have taken a beating.

It was an instinct that saw Aerian draw her blade and slid beneath one of them about to drive his own sword through Harley, the blade deflected by Aerians in a shower of sparks. Aerian rolled and was crouched between the small group and Harley as she stood the group backed up.

“Did I not say she was off limits?” Aerian barked the flash of anger through her eyes.

“She deserves everything she has coming to her,” The guy from yesterday now snapped at Aerian, she didn’t blink as her right hand sent him to the ground.

“You’re not wrong, she probably does, but that’s not your choice unless you’d like your chance,” Aerian replied darkly “We do this the old way, my way, you and Harley if you win she’s out of here,”

“And if she wins,” He asked coldly

“That’s up to her,” Aerian replied as she turned offering her hand to Harley, the moment her back was turned she felt him move toward her, again on an instinct, she turned her blade blocking his attack as she turned past kicking the back of the knee with a crack sending him to the floor.

Aerian would have driven her own blade through him had Serah not caught her wrist “You said no more murder,”

Aerian flicked her blade in her palm and then with a flick of her wrist snapped it into the ground at her feet.

Domi was in the hallway now, rubbing his eyes, while Virra lounged against the door in just the large tunic with her bandaged thigh exposed.

“What the hell…?” Domi said, motioning for Harley to near their room. “What happened?”

Harley ducked past the small group as Serah shoved the guy away “Alistair doesn’t fucking listen,” she snapped angrily “You’re girl just gave him a chance to put it right, then he tried to jump her and likely got his knee broke for his trouble, had I not stopped her she would have ended his miserable existence,”

Aerian picked her blade up glaring at Alistair before she walked toward Harley and pushed her into their room “You need to accept we’re taking control, and ignoring the rules is not going to fly any longer, if you have a problem then you take it to the pit simple as that, and you fight until you can’t stand,”

“So we kill in the pit, just not in the halls?” Alistair spat in frustration.

“She never said kill,” Serah replied darkly “And breaking you’re knee probably just saved your ass the embarrassment of getting your ass kicked for the third time today,”

Virra straightened as Harley was pushed to the room, while Virra has been leaning with little weight put on her leg but a limp was noticeable, as small as it was. “I agree with Serah. The pit before was to sort out issues not a vice to kill. Come, Firefly and Serah. It’s time we talk. Domi, you deal with Alistair.”

Domi yawned but moved to point to another and himself to host him up. “Off to the infirmary.”

He walked while supporting Alistair, once back on the table, he inspected the damage. “Damn, she’s still got a kick.” Domi proceeded to give him a bottle, then began to work on a cast. “Everyone is so uptight. So why even bother, you know that things are changing, you’re pushing the envelope.”

“So she won’t kill but she has no problem breaking my leg? She really is good as they said she was, but all our problems started with Harley they should end with her death, she would have killed any of us just as easily,” Alistair sighed darkly, the pain now ripping at him from the knee “I just want her dead, to answer for all those we’ve lost to her recklessness or even her own hand, why is that so wrong?”

“Hm. Perhaps she had no problem breaking your leg to defend herself, which is easily repaired. But as for a life, that is not. This goes to prove that Aerian means to right the wrong. She could have killed you but did not. You speak as though it’s simple. We all know that a majority of you if not all, want Harley dead. But doesn’t that defeat the purpose of no killing? No murder? Everyone has done something unforgivable, it takes a stronger person to give that individual a chance against all the odds to prove worth. After all, didn’t the Ever Present give all of you that same chance?” Domi said calmly.

“Serah is the reason she didn’t kill me, I don’t think your girlfriend planned to let me live, seems she says one and thing and does the other, an irrational mine field is that one” Alistair sighed softly “Though I probably shouldn’t have tried to blindside her,”

“Don’t pretend to know. The fact remains you are alive. Instead of using it for the negative put a foot forward instead of back. We are looking to the future, which means the past has to be left let to lay.” Domi finished up the cast and looked to him. “Yes, that was foolish. Never strike from the backside, which can be viewed as backstabbing. Metaphorically and physically.”

“I will just thank you for sorting my leg, and pray your girlfriend doesn’t hold a grudge,” Alistair replied blankly.

Domi moved to begin to clean the area. “Instead of hope, why not take initiative? Look we aren’t here to dictate or force anything. But a change was needed. I think you and everyone would be better off not fighting against it and see where it goes. She had her reasons for everything. But if I may make a suggestion, take the bull by the horns. Apologize for blind siding her. I’ll be there and she won’t kick your ass.”

“I think I’m just going to stay out of the way today doc, but I will make my peace in time,” He replied with a calm in his voice that was odd in its direction.

Domi nodded to Alistair, moving to place his hand on his shoulder. “Be safe, no more pushing it. Yeah?”

 

****************************************************************************

 

Aerian made her way to quickly check over Harley as she eyed the cuts and bruises, Serah stepped in and then closed the door “You were going to kill him after you set the terms, you would have killed him,” she stated firmly

“It was reaction, he attacked from behind he’s lucky I didn’t snap his neck,” Aerian replied “They are still not falling in line, but perhaps they know we’re not kidding around now,”

“Alistair riled them up, Harley was unlucky, this will teach them, Aerian you just need to keep your temper in check, there isn’t anyone here who can go against any of you three and come out intact, tensions are high but it will settle, if you’re willing to let it,” It was an odd turn for Serah but she was the voice of reason “You over reacted, and now he can’t settle this with Harley and that’s going to just piss him off more,”

Virra chuckled returning to sit in the bed. “Emotions in check. That is a challenge given our circumstances.” She patted her belly which now has formed a small bump.

Serah stared in though before looking at Aerian “Wait, both of you?” She then looked to Harley who was looking just as stunned by yet another revelation, “And she still kicked your ass?”

“Aerian always was kinda special” Harley replied softly “Not really the brightest choice, combat while pregnant? Even for you that seems reckless,”

“I’m fine, and I would never have put myself in a situation I couldn’t control, you know that. We have to ensure the future of The Ever Present, and my family, I can’t do that without support,” Aerian shrugged softly “We need to stop fighting among ourselves, past is past, but the future is what matters,”

“Perhaps not. But, we aren’t going to ignore the future. We need support while attempting to gain the strength that the Ever Present was. Now, it could be better than before. The fact remains, no murder and no killing. Look ahead and not behind. We do have Domi looking out for us, as well as each other. Now you know the truth of emptiness between her and me. We returned regardless of our situation and we aim to make this right and steer in the right direction.”

“I must admire your commitment, it’s hard for some of us to consider, and we’ve changed leadership twice in the last day, not hard to understand why we are little rattled?” Serah replied softly the cold edge of her voice now had dissolved “Your boy talks sense, asked I give this new direction a chance and so I will stand in support, but the choice should be theirs not because they have to but because they wish to?”

Aerian nodded softly “Anyone who wants to remain I said it before they can, things are not going back to what they were, and if that’s the reason then that will be their choice as well, we are here to lead not to dictate,”

“It will take time. Everlands wasn’t built in a day and we have had our fair share of bumps along the way. Much the same as Ever Present. She loves the group as a whole, which is why she came back. It takes a strong person to admit fault and go about correcting it. Right, Firefly?” Virra smirked, leaning back, extending her hand to Aerian. “Harley, you probably should get those scrapes looked at.”

Aerian slipped into Virra with a kiss to her neck “It will take time, but we will get to where we were once, we will lead by example, seems to work well for my dad,”

“Still can’t believe your dad is Kane Elcarus, that’s a lot to digest,” Serah replied, “Anyway if you’ll excuse me I need to go talk with a few people, I will return in a while and give the lay of how things are?”

“I’m Ok Aery, bruised pride more than a few scrapes, though I’m sure your doctor friend will check me all the same when he returns,” Harley added as she settled back by the fire now beginning to rebuild it.

“Sounds good, Serah.” Virra watched as the woman left, then returned a kiss to Aerian’s crown, shifting her gaze to Harley.

Just then the door opened and Domi entered, motioning for Harley to sit in a chair to inspect her. “Your injuries are superficial. You’ll be fine and Alistair definitely had a broken leg, Aerian. He may at one point come to apologize, though be wary of him, both of you. He regrets blind siding you.”

“I suspect he may try something else, I can’t expect everyone to play nice, but you treated him so they can’t say we are treating anyone any different, I think you’ve spent more time performing triage since we got here than we have had together,” Aerian smiled softly.

“Face hurts, ego hurts, but I’m still alive so that’s something,” Harley smiled softly before standing, “I think I’m going to go hide in my room for a while if I can help just send for me,”

Domi nodded to Harley, watching her leave the room and sighed. He moved over to Aerian and Virra, laying his head down in Aerian’s lap. Virra leaned to kiss and nibble at Aerian’s neck. “Yes, you’ve been a busy man.”

“I’m fine so long as I can do my part. It’s been tiring but there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do to make this go smooth and keep my beautiful angels happy.”

“And there isn’t anything we wouldn’t do to keep you happy,” Aerian barely even though as her response came from her lips. As she felt Virras kissed she whimpered softly, “I would do anything for either of you,”

Domi caressed Aerian from her ankles to her thigh, turning his head to kiss her thigh with a playful nibble. “How are my beautiful mothers to be? Your hand Aerian? Your leg Virra?”

“It’s still sore, Domi, though I figure it will be as such for a while yet. My bosom is sore…” Virra whispered.

“Oh, well, I can’t wait to help when it’s swollen with milk. Each of you.” Domi teased with a wiggle if his brows.

“You’re such a pervert…” Virra sighed with a smirk.

“But he’s our pervert, so many girls around here and he doesn’t so much as take a look. It’s nice,” Aerian mused softly as she let her fingers wander gently over Virra before she shifted to kiss Virra deeply.

The shift was met with Virra wrapping her arms around Aerian, due to her injury her movements were limited. But Domi began to nibble and kiss their necks, taking his time on each, it was apparent his goal was to mark them with hickies.

Aerian moaned as she felt Domi against her neck before she sat back and peeled off her top her eyes now looking to Virra “I think he’s trying to mark his territory.”

Virra smirked while leaning to kiss, Aerian deeply, though turned her cheek to rest against her naked bosom with a brief lick. Before grabbing him by the shirt to pull him up. “I don’t like being marked.” Though in the next instant her lips were on Domi’s neck, suckling intently with a groan from Domi. It was clear that the tides were turned and she was determined to mark him.

Aerian joined her nipping at Domis flesh before suckling hard. Before she shifted her attention to Virra, her hands now sliding up over her sides and over her stomach and then up to caress her breasts.

When Aerian’s lips left Domi’s neck, he had a mark, but on Virra’s side there was the peppering of such upon his flesh. A moan left her lips as Aerian touched her bosom. The thin fabric of the tunic separating from flesh contact, Virra parted from his neck, while turning her lips against Aerian’s in a deep kiss. Her hands lifted to cup and massage the mounds. Domi was watching them but began to loosen Aerian’s pants and dip a finger down to tease her hidden pearl, doing the same to Virra though dipped his hands beneath her tunic.

Aerian felt his touch and sighed deeply, as she squirmed against him before kissing Virra once more, Aerian moaned against Domis touch and the kiss.

A smirk appeared in his lips, while Virra moaned and attempted to adjust. “Don’t move too much, Virra.” He warned, as his hand appeared to quicken beneath her tunic. But now before Aerian could react his mouth was fixed greedily upon her bosom, centering on the flesh with a whip of his slick muscle. His finger sorted lower and sunk into her waiting folds, struggling around add a thumb for added to focus in her plump pearl.

Aerian pushed back into him as her eyes closed sinking down onto her elbows laid with her head against Virra, “He doesn’t play fair,” she murmured softly.

Virra chuckled, tilting Aerian’s chin up to press her lips against hers, the kiss was deep and hungry, passionate. As the sound were fed into the kiss, she head the buckle of his pants released. Before she registered what happened, Domi had ripped her free of her pants and was flipped over on her knees. While Aerian was face to face with Virra’s dripping gate, a glorious sight. Without a moment’s hesitation, Domi plunged himself deep within her silken folds, strong hands reaching around to massage and pinch her buds.

Aerian let her tongue flick against those warm juices with a soft whimper, as Domi plunged into her she felt her body tense, a low growl escaping her, feeling him fill her deeply she moaned now moving to allow her fingers to dip into Virras wetness, her tongue searching for Virras already swollen pearl.

Virra cried out with the dip of Aerian’s fingers, the slick tool focused on her pearl, tilting her head back with her hands lifted to tend to her own bosom.

Domi began to thrust into Aerian, while plucking and punching her buds, the speed increasing with the shrewd clapping of his hips against her bottom. A smack was heard, as one hand left a red mark but massaged the cheek apologetically, only to continue with the process.

Aerian growled as his hand struck her but felt her body tense, and yet felt herself only get wetter, as she probed Virra deeply with her fingers, her tongue flicking against the tender pearl. As he struck her again she pushed back into his has increasing the impact and causing her to whimper.

Virra was releasing those beautiful sounds, it was clear she was attempting to rest her leg. Her folds throbbed around the constantly delving digits, she was building to her release, and then it happened. A rush of juices was spent from her honey pot, causing her tremble and the more Aerian continued the more of her sweet nectar flowed.

To Aerian’s buck back, Domi massaged her half-moons then latched to her hips, pulling her back into the thrusting. The sound and smells in the room were carnal heaven. Just then Aerian felt his monstrous tool grow, inflating and stretching her passage. Suddenly twitching and exploding, filling her with gob after gob of his molten seed.

Aerian moaned deeply as Virras release struck, as Domi quickened her pace, she removed her fingers from Virra curling them into the bed, her own body heated causing her cry against the thrusts, as she felt him release with her she ground back against him before her body tensed, her muscles clamping against Domi milking every drop deep within her a low growl was lost the sheets beneath her.

Domi continued to rock within her, slowly, leaning forward to press her lips in a flutter along her spine a steady hand massaging Aerian’s shoulder tenderly. But he leaned to lick her ear. “I love you, Aerian.”

He removed himself with that articulate plop and swept the fiery haired woman in his arms. Shifting her to his right, while settling between the two woman with an arm curling around each. It was a tender moment, as he shifted his lips in gentle kisses between the two, recovering from the passionate moments and savouring this time before sleep stole them away.

Aerian shuddered against the kisses, as she slid into his lap and returned the kiss, her hand now reaching trail over Virra softly, before nestling into Domi and stretching her legs out and over Virra.

Virra glanced to Aerian with a smirk, learning against her and Domi. “Seems your plan to mark us backfired.” She mused, looking at his neck that was peppered with little hickies and one side with others but larger.

Aerian chuckled to her words with a grin before placing his hand on her stomach “I think he just likes it when we retaliate,” her words were soft, as she leant to kiss his neck softly.

[Everything Changes] Intimate Moments

Kane yawned and stretched as he crawled onto the bed flopping down feeling the last few days finally begin to hit, he looked toward Aishani with a smile “Though I won’t lie, I have never felt more complete than I do right now, the realm is in order, kind of, we have beautiful children, my brother is hunting down our rogue sister, my daughter is hunting down a rogue guild of assassins and I get to play husband instead of hero,”

Aishani was laying on her side beneath the sheets, her dark hair flowing over her shoulders in the dreads giving her an exotic appeal with her dark ashen skin and golden eyes. She grinned to Kane now, but soon Terra and Xander began to stir. Aishani rose quickly moving over to lift each child in her arms while guiding a swollen bosom to each set of greedy mouths. Sighing softly, while rocking and waking with them, still without clothing. “And father.” She added in. “It is strange how things came to be…even I get aroused with them feeding…”

Kane shifted to watch as the children fed from his wife, “Bet you don’t get as aroused as I do, seeing you take to motherhood with such grace and beauty, it’s enough to make any man quiver,”

She chuckled to his words, while a smirk was on her lush lips. But after a moment Aishani grimaced with an eye closed, removing Terra from her bosom. Now Kane could see the cause if discomfort. There was a bite mark from around her bud, mixed with milk and blood. “Shame on you, Terra!” The little one gurgled and laughed, as Terra’s sharp fangs were revealed.

She sighed offering Terra to Kane in order to burp and release the gas built up. But then she gasped, attempting to remove Xander from the feast of her milk. Though he put up a fight, a cry parting her lips before final parting from Xander. This time a bite was deeper, while the milk oozed mixing with the blood. “Damn it…that hurt…” She sighed but adjusted Xander to rest upon her shoulder to pay his back.

Kane groaned as he saw the blood, as he took Terra he smiled softly. He patted her gently but with enough to finally cause the deep release of the youngster’s wind.

“We may need to find a way to prevent this, my love, teaching them we cannot feed at will, that’s not going to be easy,” Terra chuckled and pulled at his hair with a gurgle.

Aishani glanced at him now, as the blood and milk tricked down over her bountiful bosom to her abdomen with the web scar markings on her abdomen. “Yes…perhaps, we should speak to Stacy. It will be difficult at this early stage. Only the fangs come out. They haven’t begun to teethe yet.” Finally, Xander released a burp, squirming to get a better view of his sister. But Aishani moved to place him down in their special play area.

As she settled Xander and Terra in the play area Kane made his way to her, his arms sliding around her waist as he smiled softly. His lips found the flesh of her neck gently, before looking past her to the children “There may be a way to suppress the vampire, but as you said we can speak to Stacy,”

As he returned his attention to her neck for a moment his hands slipped over the scarring of her stomach gently.

Aishani curled against him, while his hands found the slickness offered by the blood and milk, which was still oozing from her buds. That sweet metallic scent mixed with the motherly milk, taunting him.

It was drowning Kane as he pressed tighter into Aishani, before breathing deeply. His hand crept up and over her breasts before lowering his head to trace his tongue over the wound. The sweetness of the milk against the copper taste of the blood an odd combination yet just as good to him.

He moaned softly before coming back to capture her lips with a deep kiss.

Aishani watched him, tilting her head back with a moan that escaped her lips to the presentation if his tongue lashing against her tender buds with the kiss of blood and milk. She eagerly returned the pressure if his lips upon her own, a hand curling within his hair to imitate a kitten like knead to his scalp, before leaning back enough to jump up and wrap her legs around his waist.

In the background, Terra was trying to put a block in her mouth while Xander was gurgling to his sister. This caused Terra to look to their parents.

Aishani broke the kiss, as her lips were beside his ear with amusement. “They are watching aren’t they…?”

Kane’s hands slid under her as she leapt to his waist. As he heard the twins he leant his head on her shoulder and nodded “They are, and our love life will never be the same,” He chuckled softly now kissing her shoulder “They are incredibly bright and curious,”

Aishani sighed, unwinding from Kane to turn and place his hand on her hips. “Tell me about it…that’s why we need to get their room situated. Feeling a little…sexually frustrated.” She caressed up and down his arms with her nails, almost as though her frustration was bubbling just beneath the surface. “At least, they will know what love is…”

There was a wicked smile that crossed his face as he walked to the door between the two rooms, opening the door and looking within “It’s all but done, had to build a new crib on account of them not liking being separated” He smiled leaning on the door frame watching her “But their room is ready when we are ready,”

He watched her in thought his eyes settled on the twins, his gaze soft and calm, as they played still attempting to eat their blocks but looking back to their parents.

She blinked but moved with Kane, walking into the room adjacent to theirs, running her hands over the new crib and looking to a more secure play area. “You’ve been holding out on me, love.” Aishani playfully punched his arm while looking to Xander and Terra. “Ready to see your very own room?” She asked moving over to hoist Xander who laughed gleefully to the way she lifted him.

Terra, on the other hand, began to cry, crawling to the edge of the play pen, reaching out to Kane.

“Not holding out, I just wanted it to be perfect for these two,” Kane replied with a nod, before reaching down to pick up Terra “Come on trouble, let’s go see what daddy has been up to,”

Kane smiled softly as he crossed into the new children’s room, he had built both crib and a new playpen. As he smiled “But I have been working on it here and there since they arrived,”

She adjusted Xander to rest on her hip, while the child looked around this room with wide eyes. “It’s perfect. What do you think?” Aishani asked her son, while he responded with a stuff of his hands into his mouth attempting to glance around the first. “Call the wet nurse…” Aishani told him while moving to gather some toys to place in the new play pen.

Kane nodded softly as he walked to the door that led to the hall speaking with one of their staff who hurried off to find the nurse.

A few minutes and the nurse arrived, she nodded to Aishani with a soft smile “You sent for me my lady?”

Aishani looked up from the floor, while now draped in a loose robe, handing the block to Terra. It appeared that she was teaching them how to build with the blocks. “Yes. I did. I need you to watch them for a while. Kane and I have business, be careful though. They are biting while breast feeding.” She stood to move near to Kane looking to the wet nurse.

Kane rocked on his heel as he watched the nurse and Aishani, in thought, he leant back against the adjoining door now “You know they are hybrid children, just be careful,”

“Of course my lord, I am aware of their heritage,” The nurse replied softly.

Aishani then turned to gather his hand in hers, pulling him after through the adjoining door. But before Kane had any time to recover, her lips were upon his as she leapt up with legs wrapped around him. The sexuality that oozed from her, she was speaking to his darker half, nails biting at his shoulders.

Kane caught the door closing it behind him, as his hands slid under her once more kissing her with as much depth and hunger as hers, moments later they were upon the bed with him over her his hands clawing at her side and skin.

Each claw against her skin was enough to leave angry red marks against her flesh, not to break the skin. But that sweet milk began to ooze asks glisten upon her buds with the metallic aroma of blood. Her lips work fervently against his while ducking in the slick partner, she was hungry and that glorious musk from her aroused state left a more primal calling to the vampire in him. They rustled in the sheets, one trying to best the other, in the end, this leads Aishani on her stomach with her behind lifted displaying the stunning petals with gates flowing with juices.

Kane growled hungrily against her, as she presented herself to him he didn’t hesitate sliding behind her gripping her hips and pulling her back into him. A deep low growl before driving into her, his hips colliding with hers with a violent sting.

Aishani snarled to the power behind his hips, glancing over her shoulder now. The gold glowing in her eyes as the fangs exposed, the wolf side of her awakening. She began to buck back against him, the ripples of flesh crashing like waves against the shore in the intimate violent act of the primal love making. Suddenly she pulled herself up to be resting on her knees, pulling her hair to the side to expose her neck to him, offering that taste of liquid fire burning in her veins for him. Now side from the clapping flesh against flesh, she growled and cried out his name.

His arm wrapped around her torso before continuing to drive into her, as she exposed her neck he growled deep and dangerous. He leant into her his fangs sinking into the flesh of her neck drinking her down in a way he had missed. He growled darkly tasting her before pushing her forward once more now pinning her to the bed as he drank her down he continued to drive into her with a hungry force.

A deep growl tumbled past her lips as his fangs sank into her flesh like a hot knife through melted butter, lifting one hand to curl and knead at the base of his neck. Aishani was urging him on, though, in his push off her down, a moan escaped her lips while lifting her hips with claws digging into the bedding to gain some anchor. The harder he pushed the more she fell off the ledge, she pressed against the mattress, with eyes rolling into the back of her skull from the carnal driven pleasure. A trickle of drool sneaking from the corner of her mouth, while again and again he felt the silken fold throb and milk him. This dip into his most carnal need, to have her, every ounce of her submit.

The taste of her and having her trapped beneath him was intoxicating to him, his nails continued to rake her flesh before he withdrew, reached to adjust himself before pressing against her tight starlet, rocking just for a moment before pushing each shallow thrust allowing him deeper access until he was within her, during this he broke from his feed though the same deepened desire remained.

Aishani howled in delight as the new angle claimed her in another door, it appeared she had given herself to the wolf. Her claws tearing into the sheets and making ribbons of the fabric, but her body reacted by lifting hips for him to penetrate more deeply. The sheer tightness of this back door was as intoxicating as the blood that rolled down her neck, causing her dark flesh to glisten. The heady aroma of musk, milk, and blood preheating his senses.

As he settled in fully Kane changed his rhythm now driving into her with repeated force, the hunger and desire burning at every nerve sending him into a deeper darker need to make his wife his own. His growls were primal and dark his nails now curling deeper to rip at her flesh.

The blood lifted now as glistening rubies seeping from the flesh of Kane’s wife, slickening his touch and coating his hands with the fiery blood burning from Aishani. She hardly seemed to notice wrapped in the glory of her own carnal pleasure, howling in pleasure with snarls. A hand reached forward to grasp the pillow but in the end shedding it and sending feathers floating around them like snow. Now she fought to rise but only to be on all fours again, bucking her hips back against him, her bottom dutifully jiggling to the force Kane was claiming her. She was animalistic in her moves now, eager as each pump sought to devastate her tight pipe, throbbing all around him. Body hungry for his release, as that dark skin was flushed with pink and smeared with blood.

As she bucked into him it spurred him harder as his hips repeatedly crashed against her the sting of flesh meeting flesh sending shudders through him and mixing with the pleasure before he growled deeply his body tensing his hands locking at her hips and driving her back into him his hips driven forward plunging him deeper into her as he delivered his seed deep within her.

Aishani met his own climax with that of her own, strong and powerful, causing her to fall forward with panting. Their sheets stained with blood, as pleased growls mixed with panting remained. Still, as he was buried deep within her, she asked herself to settle on her knees, craning her neck to curl a hand at the side of his neck to bring his lips down to meet her own in a deep and loving kiss, easing her down from the height of bliss and quell her wolf.

Kane eased to her side, returning her kiss with a passion yet gentle and tender. His hand now tracing over her flesh gently. As he felt his release subside he curled into her the feeling of her skin against his.

Aishani moaned in the kiss, though, broken it as they lay relishing in the moment. His hands found the sticky slickness that remained of her torn skin, though nothing seemed to matter to her but this moment. Her fingers caressed up and down his forearm, while his semi-hard member still remained buried in her back door, inching closer and closer to escaping the fleshy sheath. “I think…we need new pillows and sheets, maybe even a mattress…” She chuckled, it was true both pillows were shredded, as was the sheets into the mattress.

Kane simply smiled and kissed her cheek “I’m sure we have plenty, its big house,” as he kissed her cheek and neck gently “We can always raid your old room, I’m sure you won’t mind,”

The blood from his bite against her neck had, already begun the healing process of the heighten wolf in her. She smirked, licking his lips. “Oh, I don’t know. She just might.” Aishani teased. “Remind me…we can’t go that long without these intimate moments. We just turn into animals. I’m surprised we didn’t break the bed frame.” She laughed.

“It’s easy to forget sometimes, we take the weight of the world on our shoulders and rarely find time to be ourselves, I do agree it has been far too long, but sometimes I suspect you enjoy giving in to the animals in us,” Kane kissed her cheek now moving form over her his lips kissing along her spine gently for a moment “I won’t lie I have missed just being us, not that I would change what we have,”

“Damn, you caught on. Yes, I enjoy it more when I can release the wolf and you the vampire. Makes things intense, don’t you agree?” Aishani mused while touring her head up with a soft moan to his affection that tickled her spine.

“I do agree, it does make things more intense,” He smiled as again he kissed her spine slowly then up along her shoulders gently, “And again I say I forget how fortunate I am, to be with you so completely and not hide any of myself, it makes it all the more intimate,”

Aishani crooned again to the presence of his lips that spoke of his adoration and love. She lifted a hand to caress his cheek, closing her eyes. “Yes, I enjoy such as well. I will not lie. I thought that…when I became the werewolf I thought we were doomed. But it has bound us even more closely together.”

“It troubled us both my love, having waited so long to find someone who made me complete, then to fear it been taken with your transformation, it has only brought us closer in ways I doubt either of us could have predicted,” Slowly Kane rolled her to her back as once more he moved over her his eyes held upon hers tender and yet lost in her in that moment “I love you more with each day, you are my reason, you are my strength and you gave me purpose and children I am as happy as a man could wish to be,”

Aishani looked up to him, as he gives over her, lifting her hands to created his face and brush his hair aside to maintain that unrestricted visual. “As I am strongest, the most complete I have ever been in my life. Not only as a Queen, but a mother and wife. I feel stronger every day and my love for you in all aspects grows. I love you, Kane.”

“And I love you Aishani,” He kissed her there was a tenderness now as he shifted position to once more allow him to enter her, this time with no rush but a deep stirring passion, penetrating her still swollen core before holding deep within in her for a moment, his hips eased back this time taking time to enjoy and feel every part of her intimately now.

She tilted her head back lips delivering the sensual moan to his entry within her flower, though, leaned a hand to bring his forehead against hers. With each breathe delivering to him the scent and presence of his wife and soul mate. This moment was beyond tender, living and gentle. Her fingertips caressed up and down his back to rest behind his thighs, urging him to fill her completely by her touch.

There was nothing rushed this time, each motion slow and tender and deliberate as they rose and fell, his eyes remained on hers his hands resting against her sides, it was a reflection of his love, deep and intimate that connected on every level of their relationship,  his breathing was steady but came with moans of her name.

Aishani lifted her legs to curl within his, hands on his shoulders while periods if pleasure would take her away within the moans. Their bodies rocking together in the sea of bliss, washed away with each climax from her and urge if her body to drink him completely in his love.

His back arched pushing him deeper within her as a release hit the motion of it causing his own a low groan as he pushed as deep within as he could, filling her deep once more as his head leant to her shoulder shuddering against her.

She gasped with a moan, as his molten seed warmed her core, melting her heart with his shudder. Now she wrapped her arms around him, interesting for the time being to be parted. Kissing his shoulder and caressing up and down his back.

He breathed gently against her the heat of her against him, still deep within as the last remnants of his seed were sent within, still as tender a moment leaving him just as breathless of her than their previous encounter.

[Everything Changes] Our Infirmary Is Where Healing Begins

Aerian stirred stretching as gently as she could with Virra still in her lap, a yawn and a smile, seeing Domi asleep beside her and Virra in her lap. She placed her hand on Virras chest gently let allowing for a gentle squeeze of her breast, before she smiled and settled back to wait for them both wake.

Virra moaned in her sleep, as Aerian placed pressure on her bosom. Though didn’t stir, it seemed that her body was compensating on healing. But it was at the sound, that Aerian heard a chuckle. Looking in that direction, she saw Domi was awake with his dark eyes on Aerian. “Morning, my beautiful angel.”

“Mm morning to you too my handsome side kick” She smiled softly as she leant toward him her hand drawing closer for a gentle kiss “Today we start rebuilding, together, me, you and Virra, but we watch our backs, as always,” She smiled gently there was a renewed determination in her now that he would see.

“Hey. Who you calling sidekick?” He chuckled, sitting up and moving closer to Aerian, kissing her neck while looking down to Virra with a caress against her dark crown. “She’s going to be really sore…but we need to get her a cane or crutch to at least allow her mobility. Virra needs to heal…”

“Mmm” She whimpered softly to his kiss her body reacting instantly “So much hotter than a side kick,” she chuckled softly and he mentioned Virra and a cane she looked over her wife to be slowly with a grin “Still tempted to chain her ass to the bed and make her rest,”

Domi laughed now, planting a hand in a light caress over Aerian’s abdomen, kissing her neck again. “You know she could get out of those if she was determined enough. But I think she’d feel better carrying her weight, the crutch would help heal since there would be little weight upon it.”

“Yea but imagine what you could do to her,” Aerian replied with a dark smile before she let her hand trace over Virra gently “Of course she’d probably kick both our asses when she got free, I do love you both though, I couldn’t do half of what I do without you both,” There was a softness in her voice now that was rare for the redhead. Her hand now returning to cover Domis.

Domi smirked, curling his hand within Aerian’s. “Oh, I get the feeling that you’d enjoy watching.” He inhaled deeply with a glance to Virra. “You and I have business…though it would feel strange giving the Ever Present such without Aerian, wouldn’t you agree?”

“Something bothering you?” She asked softly watching him now “Don’t hide stuff, you don’t need to even as unique as our relationship is, I can’t do any of this without you, or Virra, we are family,”

“Aside from the fact I am taking care of my angels? Nothing. I just don’t want to leave Virra out of the plans with Ever Present. Since we met it has been the three of us doing everything together. Because she’s injured we have to take that into account.”

“Oh I wouldn’t dare,” Aerian smiled softly her free hand now running over the ring that had them connected “We can let her decide, she will want to be with us, but she may choose to rest in which case we can fill her in when we return, but she will be just as involved in every step, strong leadership was always the guiding force behind The Ever Present, and you see what happens when that fails, it becomes a power struggle, and causes chaos, we can’t allow that to happen again, right now the only people in The Ever Present we can trust are ourselves, everyone else is going to have to earn it,” A soft sigh as she smiled “It’s time, as I did that The Ever Present grows up, I want what I had with them before, minus a few of the other things of course,”

“Such as the sex parties? Orgies?” Domi chuckled now, nodding in agreement. Though gathered Aerian’s injured hand to check on and change the badges. Amidst the check, Virra did stir and silently watched Domi in the care he gave to Aerian.

“Oh don’t remind me,” Aerian groaned covering her face to hide the flush of colour, “I spent more time on my back than in the field at some points,”

Virra pressed her lips together attempting to adjust, though have in to a Domi’s assistance. But when Aerian leaned against the door and spoke, Domi and Virra exchanged glances. Virra lifted her hand to guide Domi’s lips against hers in a deep kiss, then meet his gaze. “I love you, Domi.”

“I love you, my angel.” Domi smirked, though extended his hand to Aerian as Virra did the same, it was clear by the tension in her shoulders that she was fighting the pain.

When Aerian came close, Domi pulled Aerian on to his lap, causing Virra to laugh. “We love you, Firefly. I love you.”

“As do I Aerian.” Domi said, kissing Aerian deeply, though drew back. “You said there is an Infirmary? I’d like to take a look. There might be something that can help you both with the inflammation and pain, that won’t hurt our children.”

Virra chuckled now, biting her thigh playfully, adjusting a slight but grimacing as it was clear her wound hurt. “Damn…wish I could drink or take herbs for the pain…” She mumbled, as Domi shifted to help her sit.

“It’s too late, Aerian. I saw that blush. It’s your past, while you might have enjoyed it. Times change…I hope. The only women I want to see on their backs and my face is my beautiful angels.” Domi mused.

“That surprised me. You really were involved with orgies and sex groups.”

“I was younger and I was angry at the world, sex dulled it, though have enough and it dulls everything,” Aerian sighed softly, a soft moan at Virras bite. Her hand gently tracing through Virras hair “Don’t worry Domi, there’s only one man allowed now, and the hottest girl I’ve ever had the pleasure of,”

“It was fun early on, but it became normal and then less so,”

Virra grimaced again, while Domi shifted to unwrap her bandage, she was only wearing a shirt and Aerian knew that the excess of the damage has soaked the bandage. “Oh, stop. You’re such a baby.” Domi said, but looked to Aerian. “I need fresh hot water and alcohol, the most pure we can to clean the wound. That includes yours, my angel.”

Virra lifted a hand to smack Domi, though he caught her wrist. “Stop. I’m here to help you. Not take advantage. Aerian has come up with the idea to chain you too the bed and in leaning to that idea. Not just for sexual fun, I need you to listen to me. You know my Uncle taught me everything he knows about anatomy and procedures. This is where you have to trust me and listen. I want the best for each of you, not just because you are with my children but because I love you both and cannot be without you.”

Virra stared at him for a long time, his words sinking in sedating her, though she nodded. “Yes, I love you too…and you Firefly will always be my rock and heart.”

As Virra spoke Aerian smiled deeply, her hand aching as she nodded to Domi’s words “We have medical grade in the infirmary,” She grinned “And yea we have a whole infirmary, for torture, they died so quick otherwise, had a decent doctor too until… Well I’ll have Harley get some,”

She moved from under Virra ensuring Virra stayed put walking to the door and sending the guard to bring Harley. As she turned and leant back on the door closing it “I want to hear you both say it again, I love you both, heart, body and soul, you’re my everything, I love you Virra forever and always” Her gaze turned to Domi “I don’t say it so much to you Domi but I love you too, and I will love both our children too,”

Aerian smiled as she slid back into Domi’s lap, kissing him then Virra each before there was a rap at the door causing her to look up, with a shake of her head.

“Come,” She called, a moment later and Harley slipped through, she looked calm and far less crazed in that moment as she eyed the scene before her, first to Virra then Domi before finally Aerian.

She stepped in and made her way to the edge of their bed “I … Lady Virra I feel as if this is somehow my fault, and will find a way to make this right, in losing control of myself, you were injured and as we are following the old rules now that places blame in my hands, the mistake by one has led to another being injured, I hope you can find a way to forgive me,” Harley sighed softly as she looked to Aerian who motion to the edge of the bed Harley sank upon it placing her hands in her lap “Aerian, yesterday was kinda chaotic, and you saw me in a real weird place, last night is honestly the first time in a long time I’ve been able to sleep and not worry about myself,”

“Harley not everything is going back to how it was, but right now I need to know if the infirmary is still intact?” Aerian replied firmly

“Yes, though since … we don’t use it much, but it’s still kept stocked, and used by those that can,” Harley shrugged in reply “Another bad choice I guess,”

“A bad choice that may ensure I keep my hand and my baby can walk properly, stop feeling sorry for yourself,” Aerian replied with a smile as she slid from Domis lap to her feet, she made her way to Harley. Aerian took her hand and pulled her to her feet as Harley stood she looked into Aerians eyes, there was for a moment something but she looked back to the floor.

“When I left I had a choice, kill you and continue life without you, or leave and know one day I’d have to come back to save you,” Aerian smiled softly “I chose the latter, because in some way I will always care for you Harley, just not like I used to, that is on you, but I can’t reign The Ever Present in without you, so now I’m asking for your help,”

“Anything, I would do anything for you Aerian,” Harley replied softly still staring at the floor.

“Good then help us take Virra to the Infirmary,” Aerian grinned and turned to help Virra to her feet with Domi.

Virra glared at Harley when she spoke, though softened her gaze before gritting her teeth to the surge of pain. “Yes, well, you didn’t drive the dagger into my leg, so on that you do not have…” She grunted a moment as Domi and Aerian helped her up, with an arm around each steady shoulder. “…my blood on your hands. Trust is earned, never given. Those words being said, I acknowledge we have our fair share to deal out. But you do too.”

“Doesn’t take away from the fact that I left myself open to Zias betrayal, probably caused it, so in context the blood is on my hands, just like Aerian leaving is,” Harley sighed softly as she walked beside them down the hall “I will find a way to make it up, or die trying,”

“I could have just walked in here, called you out and killed you Harley, you know that, but I haven’t, just ask Virra or Domi, you may be crazy and unstable but I have not once questioned you can be saved, twice you’ve had a blade at my throat and twice you’ve survived how are you not getting the last thing I want is you dead in all this? I need you to help me fix things,” Aerian replied softly as she wrapped an arm around Virras waist to help keep her steady “We will lead, but we can’t do that without The Ever Present seeing that things have changed, murder for no reason just isn’t going to fly any longer, which is why all assassination contracts are to be cleared through us, we need the realm to not want to hunt us all down and kill us, because trust me they will leave us be for now,”

“I know,” Harley sighed deeply before pushing open the door, beyond lay several beds and cabinets all stocked with medical supplies, Aerian helped Virra to one of the beds and helped her sit.

“Try to stay still please,” Aerian smiled kissing Virras cheek before wandering over to one of the cabinets and looking within “Needles, threads, alcohol, bandages, even some pain killers here, we had a decent supply line at one point, we will need to restore that,”

“Which we will,” Domi said beside Aerian, looking into the cabinet. “Its times like this Stacy or Jade would come in handy.” He sighed softly, though, pulled a jar from the shelf and removed two pills. Then went about to gather a basin of water, alcohol and glass of water. “Take this.” He offered Virra the two pills, as she eyed him suspiciously. “Don’t worry it’s safe for the baby.” Virra nodded to him, watching as he worked to clean and re-bandage. Once finished, he turned to Aerian, guiding her to sit on a chair, inspecting the wound before cleaning and bandaging her hands with a kiss to her palm.

She grimaced at the twinge before smiling “Thanks,” She waved her hand mockingly at Harley before turning to Virra “How you feeling baby? I mean you did get the worst out the three of us,”

Harley looked to Domi as she eyed him for a moment “How did you know you wouldn’t hit either of them? That shot at Zia, I’ve only seen one person with that kind of accuracy and she was running in blind, which makes me wonder how she was planning on not ending up dead, Zia wasn’t exactly an easy take down,”

“She would have died, trust me on that,” Aerian replied, clearly not revealing her last revelation to Harley “Let’s just say I’m just as dangerous without a weapon as I am with one,”

Virra lay on the bed, propped by some pillows arranged by Domi. “In truth, I feel like shit and hurt something bad.”

Domi kissed Virra softly. “The medication hasn’t kicked in yet. You’ll feel better then, but I want you to avoid standing or placing too much pressure on your leg.”

“How do you suggest, I do that?” She snapped, then after a moment, Virra’s eyes widened. “Oh no. No no. I’ll be a fucking gimp…”

“Better then wheels, look, Virra…A cane and crutch is better than a permanent limp. I know you don’t want that.” Domi explained. “That wound is deep and will need time to heal.”

“Fuck my life…” Virra groaned.

Domi looked back to Harley now with a shrug. “Blonde bitch had to die. She injured my angel. I went with instinct.”

“I swear he was born with a bow and arrow in his hands.” Virra mused.

“Not like I would have been able to complain if he’d have stuck an arrow in the back of my head? Though might have come back and haunted him for a while,” Aerian chuckled softly “He relies in instinct, no point second guessing an action that’s when you make mistakes,” She replied softly.

“Not always true,” Harley sighed softly “Sometimes you just make a bigger mess than you started with,”

“You tried to do it alone Harley, something like this, you can’t,” Aerian replied darkly as she now settled in a chair beside Virra “Family is what makes the realm go round, I guess somewhere in all your chaos you missed that point,”

“Or she just yearned for it.” Virra suggested while sighing softly, looking to Domi as he was busy looking over the room and cabinets. Finally he turned with two crutches and grinned to Virra. She rolled her eyes now. “Fucker…”

“This will help with mobility, but give you support until your leg has healed more, we will get a cane. Maybe with flames on it to give the illusion you are going faster.” Domi wriggled his brows with a grin.

“I think he likes this a little bit too much,” Aerian smirked softly watching Domi, “Just be good, please, you’re gonna be way more pissed when you’re in a fight and you are slow cause you didn’t listen to him, not to mention he’s going to be delivering our children, if you think he’s bad now what’s he going to be like then?”

Virra glanced to Domi, while shrugging. It took at least an hour before the medication kicked in. Domi helped Virra learn how to utilize the crutches, before long, Virra caught on. Then it was time to leave the infirmary, but Domi gathered a long skirt in order to cover Virra. She told him to enjoy it, being in a skirt. Though, there was a reason, Domi wanted to have it healed but laughed explaining she was hot.

Virra literally tried to lunge at him, as he dodged. Now it was time to face the Ever Present members and Virra refused to not be present.

[Everything Changes] Another World and New Rules

As Hades came through the other side into the back alley, he bent over, feeling his breath ripped from his lungs. It took a moment as his brain tried to clear the strange fuzziness it now had. Finally finding his centre he stood turning to see Ascondia, who simply shrugged with a smile, he quickly turned on his heel to find Jade.

Jade was found after looking for a moment hunched over a garbage can while attempting to breath, her chest rising and falling as though attempting to catch her breath.

Hades made an unsteady few steps toward her his hand resting on her back for a moment “Are you OK?” he breathed softly letting his hand run over her spine gently “Just let it pass, it’ll be OK”

When his hand moved over her spine, Hades felt her trembling beneath his touch. After a moment the gaping lessened, then she straightened and gave him a slow nod. But it was clear that she wasn’t ready to move just yet. “The world…is spinning…”

“The first time sucks the worst, even a few trips later it still sucks,” He smiled softly, “We can take a few minutes, take as long as you need,”

“Be patient, it takes a moment,” Ascondia added softly “We will need a place to stay, and money things aren’t exactly as they are at home, I trust we have something we can use?”

“Kane has kept a small string of contacts over the years. Dedicated to ensuring we can get a job done if needed, they are secretive, but once I know where we are I can do the rest,” Hades replied though his eyes didn’t leave Jade now.

Jade nodded to Ascondia’s words, though, challenging herself in taking a step forward and nearly crumbled. But then another and another until her steps were steadier. Finally she glanced to Hades and extended her hand for his. “Let’s get this started.”

He slid his hand into hers with a smile and nodded, “Alright let’s rock and roll,” He smiled as they made their way from the alleyway. The street was insanely busy as people went about their business, staring at phones or other such devices. Hades actually looked lost for once “I do prefer our way of life” he sighed softly.

“The street was chaotic, but the roads are what caught Hades’ attention, vehicles that came in all manner of variety as stared lost for some time, finally Ascondia shook her head and chuckled “Come on this way, and don’t go getting ideas, it was the dark ages when they took you, this is the future and their world, though they have updated since I left, seems cell phones have improved a whole lot,”

Hades nodded drawing Jade closer to him as they proceeded to follow Ascondia.

Jade stared her, completely stunned by the sights, sounds and smells. Her hand in his tightened, as a few people bumped into her without apology. Though, moved closer to him with confusion in her eyes. “Cell phones? Are those three brick looking things three people are holding?”

“Yup magical talking boxes” Ascondia chuckled softly, she paused by a window before looking within “Seems we’re in my home town, wonder why that crazy bitch chose here, makes it easier though,” They made way a little further along before she pulled something from her pocket, a passport she waved it at Hades the pointed to the bank “I’m gonna go in there, grab some stuff from my safety box that I left before I came back to the Everlands, so stay here OK”

Hades stared at her blankly but drew to him now “Be quick,” He snapped softly.

Jade was busy looking around at this concrete forest with moving vehicles, but then when Ascondia spoke and walked away, her eyes rested on Hades. “I guess besides waiting in her, this gives me a chance…My beloved…she revealed something to me and I want your opinion on it.” She paused ensuring that she had his attention, though looked down. “I guess I’m transparent enough…she told me that here we are human. This would be a place I could conceive. Offering protection when we travel through the portal back home. To let the realm catch up…I’m not sure. This is her way to right the wrong that she had done to me…”

“We’re not human, but everything that makes us, ourselves, it’s just deeply supressed, though if there was anything between you and I there that was preventing us having a child, she is correct it wouldn’t be present here,” Hades smiled softly as his hands rested on her shoulder “We could get pregnant and when we return the realm will rebalance itself, though it would be a little uncomfortable for a short while. Her information would be correct which is good news for us?”

Jade looked to him in silence, then thrust her arms to wrap around his neck in a tight embrace. “I can finally bare your child, Hades. I won’t be a disappointment.” She whispered, kissing his neck and then cheek and finally his lips. “You and Ascondia say it will be uncomfortable for a while…what do you mean?”

“It will be as the realm adjusts, when we get back the realm, will need to take our heritage and transfer that to our child, no harm to baby but you will feel like your head is being split wide open,” Hades kissed her gently as his hands rested against her “It sucks but someone has to bear the burden, something I remember all too well as the realm made me what I am, then Ceremon turned me into an Elcarus and that sucked even worse,”

He smiled softly “You will have the worst headache, and well effects unique to your kitsune that I couldn’t guess,” He smiled softly “This is the cost to bend the rules,”

She swallowed hard to the reveal from Hades, but he saw a spark of determination. A woman willing to do anything for another, smiling to him. “Then we will do it. I was rather enjoying the practicing.” She chuckled and curled her fingers at the nape of his neck to bring his lips down against hers in the deepest and most passionate kiss yet, as their fate was sealed and the prospect even more grand.

He returned the kiss with a moan caught out with the sheer passion that flowed from her now, “I like the practice too,” He chuckled softly, a woman was now staring at them as she saw the image before her. Hades looked to the woman in thought “Can I help you?”

“She is so young, why would you not chase someone your own age,” The woman snarled angrily as Hades for the first time was hating the fact he was unarmed.

“Mind your business lady, she’s probably just as old as him, and so much better looking,” Ascondia sighed as she exited the bank and made her way to them, the woman looked at her before she stormed off “Urgh always having to meddle, we should limit those we interact with, I have money, with interest it turns out so we can get hotel rooms,”

Jade furrowed her brow to the woman, though chuckled to Ascondia’s interruption, as the three of them took leave of the disgusted female. She nodded to Ascondia, while unwrapping herself from Hades but slipped a slender hand into his. “This is your home. Lead the way.”

They made through the city as Ascondia led, others would look as they passed by, and a few younger boys whistling to the two females would raise Hades’ ire for a moment before he returned his attention to Jade.

They finally arrived at the hotel as Ascondia slid up to the desk with a smile “Hey there, my friend over there screwed up and booked us at the wrong hotel for the convention this weekend, and I’d rather not have to walk ten blocks when I can walk three,” She threw Hades a wink then returned her attention to the clerk.

“I see miss, we have only one room left a double on the 4th floor but with the couch and the convention in town we can bend the rule to allow three in a single room,” She replied, Ascondia nodded and handed her payment as she received the key card, Ascondia smiled and then turned back to them, making their way to the elevator, as they stepped in she turned to face Hades and Jade “I will make myself scarce tonight, I have a friend who’s dad used to work in the police department, hopefully they may have a lead on Kara, I’m sure she’s gotten their attention by now,”

Jade blushed to the whistle by the boys, curling closer to Hades. When in the hotel it didn’t take a genius to catch in to her disappointment at sharing a room, but didn’t say much. A smile formed in her lips to Ascondia’s words with a nod, kissing Hades neck with a playful nip.

As they stepped out of the elevator Ascondia handed Hades the keycard, taking Jades hand from him for a moment before taking her aside leaning in to whisper “I’m glad you’re taking my information, I see that sparkle and I will make myself scarce for a little while, tell Hades not to worry I’ll be in touch,” She placed a cell phone in Jades hand then moved away and back into the elevator.

They made their way along the hall before he slid the card through the lock and the door opened “The room beyond was a luxurious, the view out over the city, Hades rounded on her almost immediately kissing her deeply for a moment before stepping back “I love you, more with every day that passes,”

She looked down curiously to the strange block that was very light in her hand then to Ascondia with a smile and nod. Though returned to slip her hand in Hades, walking down the hall with him to the room. Jade watched as he slipped the key in the slot, hearing a click with a green light flashing.

Jade inhaled deeply at the sight of the room with the city landscape beyond, though that moment was stolen away when his lips crashed against hers. Curling her arms around his shoulders to deepen the kiss just as he parted, a blush lifted to her cheeks. Her foot kicked the door closed while leaping up to curl her legs at his waist, pressing her lips against his eagerly.

Hades was lost as she leapt into his arms, his arms sliding around her pulling her tight into him as he returned the kiss deep and hungry, all the while he carried her through the room to the bed before turning to sit keeping her in his lap, his hands now moving to remove the kimono between him and her body.

After the obi was removed, it was easy for Hades to peel back the fabric from her shoulder, every inch of skin slowly being revealed to him. The delicate material slipped from her shoulders, down her arms to cause the fabric to part only revealing the curves of her hidden bosom. The more the fabric slid down, the more was in display, until the kimono was dropped on the floor. Now, Jade wore nothing but the sea gifted collar, it was stunning in the light offered by the city scape.

Her hands lowered now to curl at his top, learning a slight to remove the fabric, as her hands marvelled over sculpt of his torso, as it had grown more muscular with the labour of their home. She learned down and praised his neck and chest with her lips.

He watched her intently as she revealed him to her, the leaner form of his body, as he smiled softly watching her “This is our best chance so I say we take full advantage of each other,”

He kissed her deeply, then down her jaw and neck over the collar, before reaching her shoulders, his hands sliding down over her spine and lower back, and then over her thighs.

She lifted her head to relish in the kiss, a hand lifted to rest upon his shoulders, the moment his tool plunged within her fingers bit into his shoulders. Jade lifted her hips with legs curling around his to tangle arms secure the position. She prayed from the kiss now pressing her cheek against his, while revealing to him in a subtle growl. “I want your child, my beloved. Don’t hold back.” That’s when he saw the yellow in her eyes and the fangs. Even though they were more human in this realm, together the suppressed essence of their being came to the surface.

There was a flash beneath those emerald eyes just for a moment as his demonic half flickered within, then it was gone as his hands forced her legs to his shoulders now once more driving down into her with a hungry force, his need to send his essence as deep in her as he could, while giving her just as much pleasure.

No sooner had the Kitsune surfaces did it return to the depths, yellow eyes returned to brown and canines sheathed. This new position offered a depth that feed his inner demon and desires, Jade was incredibly flexible while he bent her almost in half. A hand slithered between them, stimulating her pearl in such a way that her folds clamped upon him and began to bloom with the throbbing. She learned up to bite his shoulder, growling, until the fateful moment her body erupted in ecstasy and Jade squirted again and again. This was the point Hades knew she was beyond the point of no return, kneading her own bosom to pinch and pluck her buds.

He growled hungrily as the tightness of her pushed his body to the brink, his rhythm slowed as each thrust was now forceful driving as deep into her and driving her down into the bed, with each time he tore into her waiting gateway.

His body tensed forcing him deep as a growl ripped from his throat, his hands clamped against her buttocks his nails biting into the tender flesh, he held himself as deep in her as he could ensuring she was bent allowing him the depth to deliver him to her waiting womb within.

As he continued to pound her mercilessly and Jade’s own actions, a trickle of drool escaped her mouth with her eyes rolling into the back of her skull with the immense pleasure. It was not long lived, while his fleshy tube expanded, as it angrily thrashed against her pearly gates before exploding to release the wave of seed within her. She cried out as the heat poured into her womanly cradle, curling her hands at the back of his thighs, nails biting into the flesh. In the aftermath, she was panting with her flesh dusted in sweat and an attractive pink flush.

He collapsed beside her panting just as quickly, his hand already returning to continue teasing that tender pearl, far from done with her in that moment as he rolled to her kissing her deeply, and with a renewed hunger his fingers slipping into her coating them in a mix of their juices before returning to working her pearl.

Jade cried out in surprise and pleasure, as it appeared Hades wasn’t finished just yet. The instant his fingers focused upon her succulent pearl, her flower throbbed and body quivered. Unable to control herself, Jade reached down with her hand to grasp at his in order to pull way. But the slickness of her arousal showed otherwise, it seemed she still was over simulated.

He kissed her deeply and hungrily before nipping her lip gently “I love you” he breathed softly his hand now tucking stray strands behind her ear.

She cried out again as that hand remained with a steady purpose, Jade fell into the kiss. But to the draw back from the kiss, Jade lifted her brown eyes to his, glossy from passion and her release. She was a vision; dark hair spread beneath her like a dark halo, skin glistening with every rise and fall of her chest, even the subtle glowing flush from her skin. That collar, born from the sea and now the only possession upon her exposed form.

He smiled softly as he curled into her tightly, his arm pulling her close. Breathing in her scent, lost in the ecstasy of their encounter.
