[Ending A War] Don’t Think Just…

Aerian laughed loudly before taking after them both, suddenly she had a thought and took off in the opposite direction before vaulting through an window and landing squarely between them, she spun on her back foot to look at Domi then to Virra before taking off toward the cottage “Come on Domi, it’s all part of our game, your our pet and now it’s time for your reward” Aerian squealed in delight before peeling her shirt off, she looked over her shoulder and tossed it Domi then resumed her race for the cottage.

The two were stunned at the appearance of Aerian, stopping them dead in their tracks, looking puzzled. Virra snickered first at giving chase after Aerian, though Domi began to race faster while pushing at Virra in a playful manner. Yet, as Aerian tossed her shirt behind her, Domi reached for it but it was Virra that caught it. Shoving it in his face, giving her more leverage and speed. “You have to catch us first.” Virra snickered, while catching up to Aerian and gathering her hand in hers, rushing to the cottage with Domi falling behind.

Aerian caught the door as the barrelled through into the living room of their cottage, Aerian purred softly with a smile, before she circled around behind Virra her arms wrapping around her waist the flesh of her breasts pressed into the fabric of her top she waited for Domi to finally join them.

Virra struggled in Aerian’s hold, arms pinned to her side, though, panting without attaining approval Virra violently shoved her hand down Aerian’s pants and instantly slithered a digit to begin to stimulate the pearl just beneath her slit. Just then Domi burst into the cottage with the closure of the door. It was dim within the room, he didn’t know his way around but once he entered, the shirt in his hand and stopped to stare at the sight of Aerian and Virra. His hazel eyes fixed, that is when Aerian witnessed a twitch in his pants, frozen at his next action.

Aerian whimpered at Virras intrusion, as Domi closed the door and stood staring she grinned dangerously, her grip of Virra released as she removed her hand from between her legs, leading her by that hand to Domi and tracing her juices over his lips.

“Now be a good boy and sit, and do as we want and I promise we will have a whole lot of fun, follow the rules and I’ll give you something for ALL your help” Aerians words were silken and dripping with intent as she let Virras hand slip from hers now moving around the cottage to close the curtains and light the candles within, the room still dim but the mood much more sensual now, finally she made her way back to Virra and back to the same deep passion filled kiss her lover had come to know, “I say we make tonight a night to remember” her tone swapped quickly as she finished with “At least before we all get brutally murdered tomorrow, or this war ends, either way I don’t want to think I want to fuck!”

Virra growled as Aerian jostled her hand free from with her pants, though, not before a digit dipped into her drooling gate, but stumbled a slight in the lead to Domi. He licked his lips after the flavor that remained and dropped the shirt, lowering a hand to adjust his package that clearly was tensing in his trousers but fell to his knees at Aerian’s words.

Initially Virra seemed hesitant, while it was then the depth and passion of the kiss that caused her to relax, turning to face Aerian and her hands lifting to knead into the swell of her bosom, pinching and tugging on the buds.

Aerian breathed deeply feeling the sharp twinge of pain mix with the flood of pleasure, suddenly she spun into Virra now stripping her, her motions rapid and hungry as she breathed in the scent of her lover Aerian smiled before sliding to her knees, her fingers working to free Virra of her pants before she let her lips kiss the flesh of her thighs her hands now resting on her hips.

Virra gasped to the sudden stripping of her clothing, as Domi remained seated, eyes intent on the two women with his chest rising and falling rather rapidly. Now, Aerian saw it when she knelt down Domi was pitching a tent in his pants and the strong scent of her lover, it was clear that Virra was enjoying being watched like this even if it was her childhood friend. She growled softly to the peppering of Aerian’s lips against her skin.

Aerian let her tongue flick out over Virras flesh as she now glanced back Domi, ensuring he knew he wasn’t forgotten. She could already feel herself wet now as she returned her attention to working her kisses toward her lovers sweet centre, as she neared Aerian changed direction working up her body to her stomach and then back down. A show as clear as it could be for Domi, before finally she slid back letting her tongue work along her out lips slowly savoring the touch.

Virra was quivering, clearly, she enjoyed putting herself on display for Domi as much as Aerian had. Fingers running through her hair, as her breathing increased into the delightful song of approval to everything that was occurring brought on by her fiancé. She lifted a leg to perch upon Aerian’s shoulder, opening herself up to the kneading at Aerian’s neck, but also delivered the view of her glistening petals to Domi. He was panting catching each glance that the fiery and dark vixen sent in his direction, clearly his pants were straining more beneath the pressure of his own arousal.

Aerian let her hands wander her lovers thighs slowly as she slowly let her tongue slide within her folds tasting the warm nectar of the only woman she loved unconditionally, Aerian slid back just a little now looking along Virras body “Last chance to pull out, but I want you to know I love you and only you, more with each day, and I’ve wait far too long to get my hands on you like this,” her words were breathless and hungry.

Virra curled her fingers within Aerian’s fiery threads looking down to her with such lust in her eyes that it was incredible. Growling softly as a glisten of her juices flowed to her shoulder, as the shape of the body Aerian knew by heart was displayed not just for her but Domi. It was an added slice to the situation in an erotic flare. A woman so strong that no man has ever seen or witnessed such from Virra with open invitation before.

Aerian knew instantly in that moment all she needed, as she turned her head toward Domi there was a fire that burnt somewhere between desire and lust and yet all in the same an absolute reminder she was Virras “You have to play by the rules, and you get both of us, all of us,” Aerian stood now as she kissed Virra then made her way to Domi, her eyes locked on his as her hips swayed ever so slightly she drew him to his feet and then aided him to undress. As she reached his pants she smiled wickedly and then eased them down as she saw his manhood she breathed hungrily wrapping her hand around just for a moment then led Virra to the bedroom, she turned and motioned to Domi to join them.

Virra lowered her leg to Aerian’s rise, growling softly within the kiss, while smacking her on the bottom while watching her move to Domi. The bulge appeared to twitch as Aerian’s sensual movements to stand before him, he simply nodded while his hands caressed over her back and hips, though, it was appreciative. Aerian could read that he was restraining himself heavily, but, the removal of his clothing exposed a very lean and muscular frame with the copper skin. He lowered his hand to caress her cheek and offered her a smirk to match her wicked expression. The endowment that sprung to life, excited to be liberated was very robust, thick and endowed. He inhaled deeply to the wrap of her hand around his girth, tilting his head back and flicking his tongue across his lips. Those hazel eyes shifting to Virra then to Aerian as the fiery female stood to gather Virra and lead to the bedroom. The invitation was accepted as Domi stepped forward with his proud pillar at attention.

Aerian smiled now as she placed herself in front of Virra slowly backing her onto the bed, as Virra met the bed Aerian pushed her upon it, waiting until Virra made herself comfortable Aerian slid onto the bed straddling her waist her hands placed flat to the flesh of her breasts.

“You are the most incredible woman I have ever met, and I want you, in every way” She leant to kiss the flesh of her neck and shoulders, before she returned to her seated straddled position ensuring Virra watching as she reached for Domi to join them.

Virra looked up to Aerian with those dark eyes, holding a fire of passion within the depths, turning her head to the side in an exposure of her neck to her lover, soft moans leaving her lips to the pepper of her lips against her flesh. Never had Virra been dominated in such a way by Aerian, usually it was the opposite and now it was clear why, since Domi was present.

To Aerian’s gesture Domi neared the bed, looking over the two beauties slowly with a gleeful twitch from his fleshy pillar, even in the lighting cast by the candles, a drop of dew appeared gracing the slit atop the crown like a jewel. His hand curled with Aerian’s as it was accepted and he lay to settle beside them, by the pattern of his breathing and the way his eyes were devouring the two vixens it was clear he was restraining himself.

Aerian admired his restraint, but was more than happy to keep him that way for now. She took his hand and led it to Virras breast keeping hers over his as she urged him to knead the flesh of her lover, Aerian had no doubt Virra could feel the heat of her own molten core as she ground down against Virra. She wanted or rather needed to stay in control of this, to see it play out her way.

Aerian had willing given herself to Virra at all times, now she craved to control this game she had started. She drew Domis hand to her own breast for a moment before returning it to Virras, her eyes now strayed to his erection with a grin. She wondered for a moment what he would do if allowed off her leash, her body shuddered at the thought as she dove down to kiss Virra again, before she reared up now rolling her hips against her lover watching as Domi plucked and teased her breasts.

Domi looked to Aerian then followed the path that she guided his strong hand to Virra’s bosom, the beauty of her lovers breast spilling between his fingers as Aerian guided his hand until the fingers began to grip and this cause Virra to tilt her head back in a sound of pleasure. Virra was rolling up against Aerian, it was plainly clear that she enjoyed this with the sounds and feel of Aerian’s molten petals against her abdomen, Domi had his eyes focused on her until Aerian reigned his hand to her own bosom in which she felt the strength behind his hand with a pinch of a bud. A twitch happened now, though, but the focus was returned to Virra, he moved closer to them upon the bed. His application to her bud was sheer torture while he pinch, plucked and rolled the bud between fingers and kneaded with his hand, causing Virra’s magnificent bosom to jiggle from time to time. Just as her mouth opened in a delicious moan it was silenced by the kiss. Domi appeared to know exactly that which made a female squirm, Virra then lifted her hands to knead into Aerian’s bosom, a hand slithering to tangle within her hair and force her down, enough to claim a breast within her lips, the flick of tongue and brief nibble upon the bud was intoxicating now with the vibration of her sounds against the flesh and rush of breath to each pinch and tug of her bud.

Aerian moaned softly as Virra took her breast, her hand ran through her hair slowly just for a moment, before she slid away placing herself between the thighs of Virra, her hands now ran along the tender flesh of her thighs, curving her fingers to drag her nails back along the flesh.

As she leant forward she kissed along Virras thighs and over her pubic bone, repeating her patterns from earlier of getting so close to warmth of her wetness before moving away to focus kisses on her thighs, her stomach, her hands roaming the flesh of her sides and thighs slowly raking her nails along Virras ribs before finally allowing her tongue to taste Virra a soft moan escaping her.

The heat was incredible between Virra’s thighs, radiating to cover Aerian in the essence of her lover. Virra reacted now as the conflict of nails and fingers stimulated her flesh sensually, a shift was felt on the bed as it appeared that Domi had adjusted to place his lips upon Virra’s bosom suckling and feasting upon her succulent flesh with the other hand never relenting on attention to the right breast. In the dip, lower, in Aerian’s taste, never had she felt her as saturated as she was, clearly this was exciting her thoroughly. But, near to Aerian’s view was the bobbing and twitching pillar of meat, a glisten of seed seen spilling down the shaft.

Aerians eyes were now fixed on Domis erection, she could smell the scent of Domi as it had begun to mix with that of Virras intoxicating Aerian. She drew her hands to her before moved them to part the tender lips exposing the tender nub, her tongue flicked out and against before she nipped against it, Aerian whimpered softly before diverting her attention back to treatment of Virras clit, slow sensual traces of her tongue before she would drag, her tongue back and suckle firmly, before letting a moan lip free vibrating along her tongue.

The feasting that Domi held upon Virra’s bosom was growing more hungry, ravaging, this caused her porcelain flesh to grow red with the whispers of bruising while it was clear this excited her even more. The sounds from Virra were incredible and fueled Aerian on with the cries of pain and pleasure. The conflict of the tenderness from Aerian’s fix to her pearl was greeted with the throbbing of her flower, in the nip a cry parted her lover’s lips but it also pushed her honey to flood against Aerian’s pallet. That is when abruptly, Aerian felt her hand taken and guided to Domi’s pillar by Virra, twitching in the hold and throbbing beneath her hand.

She slowly wrapped her hand around, feeling the throbbing of him, she let her hand slowly work the length, just for a moment. Before she shifted her position now draped against Virra as she began to work the length of Domi, the sight of him against her lover only served to make Aerian want more.

She leant forward over Virras legs enough to place a kiss against the tip before extending her tongue against the underside. Flicking it back to collect the single drop of him, feeling the warm salty taste spread out over her tongue, a soft sound almost a purr emanating from her throat.

Virra removed her hand from atop Aerian’s, while fingertips ran through her hair and tangled to loosen and return, again and again. Eventually the focus shifted upon Domi, as the girth was more then to not touch her fingers together without squeezing. Virra’s breathing was ragged, as Aerian felt her body react to the presentation to Domi’s flesh stick. To the initial first lick against the salty sweet flesh, rippling beneath her tongue. A groan parted Domi’s lips when the tip was attended to by Aerian, twitching and throbbing more persistently to the attention, his lapping and suckling increasing causing Virra to cry out in ecstasy and pressed Aerian’s head more to his member.

Aerian reached for Domis hand now guiding it to the tender core of Virra, as she watched his hand just for a moment she watched him, another tentative lick of him before she released her grip raking her nails down the underside.

Finally taking him in her mouth, just the tip as she let her tongue circle, her hand now working down followed by her mouth, as she eased him down her throat, pausing for a moment to allow herself to adjust, and then continue before easing back all the way from him, leaving him once again her hand.

Domi’s hand was rough, weathered from a life in the line of his work, warm and strong in the guide down to Virra’s flower. He parted the petals with two fingers and then began to massage against the pearl that was glistening from the pearl essence dripping from the core of Virra’s hive. His lips left her bosom with an articulate plop, now, Aerian could see the peppering of bite marks and raging flesh, angry, red. His other continued to torture her opposite breast, as a groaning to the lick that flicked upon the spongey tip, causing the flesh stick to twitch, but a grunt slipped through as her nails tormented his tender length. He glared down on her, but it was swept away with the expertise of her apologetic movements and the salve of her hot mouth purging him, appearing to move his finger more firmly against the writhing Virra but it was then that Aerian heard the subtle sound of a fingertip entering her lover the further she traveled down. His taste was strong, masculine, though also wild. He began to buck against her hand, watching her with hungry eyes.

The sound of Virra being so wet spun Aerian. She now returned her attention to Domi and his length. Again she returned him to her throat, now as she eased back she would sink back down upon him.

As she worked Domi Aerian would lightly rake her nails against Virras flesh, she moaned now around Domi. Her mouth remained locked around him but she had now positioned them so she could watch Virras every reaction.

Domi maintained his position, the sound of his digits digging into Virra’s grounds growing more intense, this caused her to cry out and the sound was not only erotic but offered a view that he did know exactly how to please a woman without his shaft. The further Aerian attended to him, the more groans increased, until she felt a hand at the back of her head to keep her in place while thrusting his hips more forcefully.

To the new view, Aerian saw Virra was in sheer ecstasy with her body glistening in the light, cheeks flush with color and eyes glazed over. Her beautiful bosom was speckled with the intensity that Domi continued to suckle on her bosom, finally he rolled her over to her hip and began to tend viciously to neglected bosom. He was like a hungry ravaging beast, her breasts jiggled to the might of each powerful pump of his hand into her that only now Aerian could hear the squirting projected by Virra’s multiple climaxes. Portions of her dark threads clung to her neck and face, while she was loosing herself and Aerian knew it.

That was when Virra watched Aerian through hooded lids, biting her lip, while her body was trembling from the sheer exhaust of the physical pleasure, licking her lips, then it happened. Aerian felt the twitch within her mouth, the fleshy tube expanding to then rage with the release of his milk into Aerian’s mouth, gathering her hair in order to force her to remain there, it was soft but firm.

Aerian halted her motion pulling back enough to prevent her choking on the warm liquid as it flooded down her throat, she tried to swallow it down, but it was more than she could as some was able to escape her mouth flooding down her chin and onto her breasts. As the flood subsided she slipped back letting him slip free of her mouth, licking her lips watching him.

She smiled darkly then turned to slither along Virras body with the same dark grin now, as she reached her eye level she kissed Virra, her hands returning to heated still soaked core of the young woman, before bring them to her lips and licking them gently. She wanted them both to continue playing as she watched first Virra then Domi, pleased in that moment, it was clear Aerian was enjoying every moment, but she was far from done just yet.

Domi allowed Aerian to lean back, grunting as each spurt filled her mouth beyond capacity, as his eyes met hers, it was clear by the still throbbing length that he was far from finished and the stamina kept the trophy stiff and glistening from her polish. It seemed that his feasting only continued upon Virra’s bosom, the unattended one now beginning to mirror that of the previous, watching as his teeth gently gripped and tugged on Virra’s bud, such caused her to yelp out in pain, while his fingers never relented while Virra was attempting to escape by writhing her hips away.

When Aerian moved upon Virra’s body, she met the glazed eyes of her lover, riddled with such passion that it was causing a swell in her heart. As her hand lowered to the core the kiss settling Virra and giving her an outlet, it was that Domi offered Aerian a space to join his fingers knuckle deep within Virra. Amazingly she was still drenched, Domi’s free hand caressed up and down Aerian’s back brought by a sudden spank to her bottom.

Virra turned her head to watch Domi for a moment, lifting her hands to guide him in a kneeling position with his erection close to her mouth, tongue parting to lick against the length and suckle, until Virra’s hand angled a slight to give Domi more of a position to plunge within Virra’s mouth. The sight was incredible, as his girth was taken in full without issue, stretching those plush lips and plumping her cheeks, the hand on his back began to urge him to roll his hips. He graciously accepted the urge, her eyes rolled into the back of her skull then and the sounds of his flesh against her lips and pleasure were intoxicating.

Aerian then felt the hand of Virra curl within hers.

Aerian watched with intent as she watched her lover devour Domi with ease, she felt her own core heat as she shifted her leg over Virras allowing her to grind herself down into Virra, a whimper as she hit the point she had intended. Again she ground down against her eyes still locked on the scene of Domi plunging himself into her lovers mouth.

Aerian couldn’t contain herself as she pushed Domi away and the turned herself before positioning Virra over her, as she did she reached her hands to grip Virras hip now plunging her tongue into her and tasting the overflow of warm juices, hungrily drinking her down much as she had Domi moments ago. Her hand waved Domi to her as she groped at Virras buttocks, it was clear enough what Aerian had in mind next, she looked back to Domi and smiled before returning to her groping and exposing her to the waiting Domi.

She was also incredibly wet and well aware that Virra would now be able to see just how wet their current escapades were making her.

Domi stumbled a slight at the push, clearly not expecting this but stroked his own manhood, proudly standing at attention of the two female vixens. Virra cried out suddenly to the shift in positions with Aerian on the bottom and Virra upon her hands and knees, the faster that Aerian drank the more that Virra moaned, to the change. Virra began to lap at Aerian’s sudden exposure of her drenched flower, while pulling her down to plunge her tongue deep within the love passage. A finger raced to slicken then plunged into her starlet abruptly and cruelly. The invitation by Aerian to Domi was accepted as he crawled on the bed to run his hands over Virra’s thighs and then extended a hand to pat sharply upon her flower causing her to yelp amidst the feast upon Aerian. Now, was the moment that Aerian had been waiting for, the perfect view between her legs and Domi massaged her cheeks, pushing and pulling them before that rigid pillar plunged suddenly and deeply within her passage causing the juices to trickle down nearly immediately. One hand went to her hip, as the other began a succession of abuse to the half-moons, caressing then returning. Now, Aerian saw the delicate petals forced to take the length, pink against the robust copper rod. His sounds began to increase, the more violent he had went.

The sight of Domis hard pole plunging into Virra was far better than Aerian could ever have wanted, though the sight of her lover claimed by another, caused a twinge of anger just for a moment, quickly buried in the view of Virra being violated by Domi. Aerian squirmed down against Virras invading hand a soft whimper before she let her tongue stray against the length of Domi, the taste of him mixed with Virra quickly filled her senses.

As she let her tongue wander over Domi she raised a hand to cup his balls for a moment before reaching back further her hands running over the muscular thighs, she whimpered again the sight above her as well as Virras actions were now pushing her completely into desperate need.

Virra pressed her hands against Aerian’s hips while driving down to plunge her slick muscle into her heated core. The vibration of her sounds felt against the tender petals. The more the clapping of Virra and Domi’s body growing louder and louder, while more of Virra’s honey spilt and added more ear into the penetration.

A cry parted Virra’s lips, as a smack caused her body to juggle against Aerian, though abruptly she parted from the deep kiss of her flower to pull her out and flip Aerian upon her back. As Domi continued to pound into Virra but now in this position it allowed him to shift from Virra to violently into Aerian, just as Virra’s mouth clapped upon her bud.

Aerian felt herself filled deep by Domi her body tensed as her heated core accepted him with ease at this point, she squealed in hunger as he did, Virras actions only pushing her rapidly toward release.

Just as she was pushed near to her release, Domi withdrew by the bite upon her bud it was clear where he traveled to. He rotated between both women plunging his manhood deep and cruelly within each. Just as Virra cried out and crushed her lips against Aerian’s to ensure a deep passionate kiss it was then that Aerian felt that massive monster stretch her passage with an explosive heat. Then as it happened he withdrew to only by the reaction of Virra amidst the kiss knew his destination. This continued for what seemed as forever, rotating between the two and filled them endlessly with his seed. By the end he pulled the two women apart and lay between them am arm around each as Virra laced a hand with Aerian over his chest. His strong hands caressing over their arms and bodies, his eyes seemed dazed in disbelief. As Virra smirked across to Aerian while kissing his neck.

“I have the most beautiful women in Everlands on my arms….” Domi commented gently, though genuinely. “Please don’t kick me to the curb.”

Aerian actually growled as he withdrew from her that first time, before groaned as he refilled her, her body shuddered with her own release her cries lost within the kiss as she found her own release. As he lay between them she looked to Virra with her own glazed look.

“I think we should keep him,” she breathed softly as her free hand reached between her own thighs collecting some of the juice and then suckling it from her fingers, she kissed his chest softly before she let her gaze fall back on Virra, now softened and tender and yet still burning with the same desire she had always had for her “And I love you, forever”

Virra grinned, while looking up to Domi. “Maybe. Play your cards right. Understand, you are not allowed to fuck either of us separate from each other. Only when we are together.” Her words carried a slight growl, she was lightly bruised on her bosom but it seemed to not bother her. But let her gaze return to Aerian, caressing her cheek. “Now and forever…”

“I can deal with that.” Domi said calmly.

“Such a good boy, play nice and we will too,” Aerian licked his chest slowly before she looked to Virra, “Let’s hope we survive tomorrow, be a shame to spoil things so quickly”

The trio fell to sleep rather quickly, though, sometime during the late hours, Domi slipped from between each female cautious to not wake them. Hesitated near the door returning to kiss each gently on the forehead. “My sleeping angels…” He whispered in admiration, stopping to watch them for a moment before gathering his strewn clothing, stirring the fire and blowing out the candles to not start a fire. Fixing his quiver with arrows and now, he slipped unknown to the two sleeping lovers out the door.

[Ending A War] A Boy, Two Thieves and the Illusionist

Aerian slid through another crack in another wall as they had tracked Xulljra one of the abandoned cities, she just wasn’t sure how close they were at this point.

“How the fuck does this happen” She muttered angrily, she had been griping the whole time angry someone had walked right into their home and taken her step sister. “How do you walk into the Mansion with a hundred fucking guards and walk out with a baby? My father’s child!”

She ran her hand along her blade for a moment before she crouched to look at tracks in the dirt, “She knows she’s being followed, or is at least assuming so, trying to lead us in circles,”

Virra was silent while Aerian griped, watching as she squatted down to inspect the ground. Finally she spoke, her voice clear and icy. “Hm. Perhaps, Xulljra, doesn’t even have the child. If she has time to draw us in circles the fact of lending the time to spare on such then she wouldn’t have your step-brother.”

The tracks indeed seemed to lead them in a wide circle, between trees and then disappearing with only a trace again, then heavier footprints. “She is utilizing the trees. Difficult with a child so young.”

“I remember Aishani saying she has two sisters? If they are both in on this, having said that the advantage is still ours, if I were her I would be assuming Dad would come after me, maybe Aishani and Hades as well, she isn’t going to be expecting a retired bounty hunter and her fiancée,” Aerian smiled softly “So for now we have that, There’s nothing to west but the mountains and well Arak’neth has those mountains protected in her absence, South leads back to Dentarius and every guard between us and there are looking for her, so north into abandoned part of he realm, destroyed by the dragons or east toward Elvera,”

“It is possible, though, we don’t have any tracks that are different to back that up. So, for now, all we have is assumptions and that is not what we need.” Virra looked around her, while walking slowly. The new moon offering no light in the forest that was by nature just as dark this time of night. Though, all the wildlife was still and silent, even the nocturnal beasts, it was account of the war or perhaps disturbed recently. Such was difficult to tell.

“Well, we can clearly exclude two of the four options. Now, if I was to meet up with someone, I would definitely not return to Dentarius…so that leaves by gut one option remaining. What was it that your Pops said…she was a master illusionist or something? That could explain the way she was able to enter the mansion undetected and since she technically didn’t kill Stacy that didn’t affect the wards.”

“Didn’t free mom, or try to kill her either, which makes me think my sister was always the intended target, maybe Z’ress plans to replace Aishani or some other whacked out plan, I swear to the gods if they harm her,” Aerian snapped back her hand blocking Virras path as an arrow hit the tree to the side of them “Bitch has help, well that answers that question I suppose”

“I wonder exactly how long, Xulljra has been in the castle…” Virra commented idly, while it appeared the arrow that quivered in the tree didn’t cause hesitation in her thought process. Though, she looked to the arrow now, running a finger over the feathers, then looked into the darkness. She grabbed Aerian by the arm and flung her to the ground, as another slew of arrows screamed over head, the hesitation and pause gave way that it was one archer. “Shit. We are walking into an ambush.” Virra then lowered her hands down to the knives strapped on her legs extending them into a fan on her palms. “They want to play hard…then so be it. I can’t play just as dirty. I know those feathers and that SHITTY AIM! You are trying to draw us into another area, like cattle. We are some fat SOWS!” She hollered.

“You know this asshole shooting at us?” Aerian chuckled, “Knew I should have brought my bow, but didn’t want to get cluttered down, how about I give him something to aim and you go take him down? Try not to kill him, he may be the only way we get answers, if not well then you can kill him or her either way”

“Unfortunately, I do.” Virra nodded briefly, as it appeared she was tense, more so then usual. But, then she dodged out of sight, leaving Aerian to be the bait.

It wasn’t long before a figure appeared, wearing a black hoodie that was not zipped but straps across his chest. Aerian saw black dreads flowing down from beneath the hood, which was shaded enough to not reveal the face of the individual. But, his form was conditioned and muscular, not unattractively so. His hands were gloved, while as on a shoulder rested a bow, with a quiver bound to his back. “She left you? A lamb to the slaughter. I will enjoy this.” His voice was deep, baritone in a rather strong and masculine.

Aerian remained crouched her hand resting on the blade at her back as she watched the figure emerge “She is not bound to me, she cums and she goes, works for us”

Aerian was flippant in her words with a smirk, as she watched him “I suppose you already know that though, and by my guess wondering why they sent me and not my father? Assuming of course your working for the psycho bitch that took my sister,”

“I work for the side that holds the most benefit. Right now, that is the bitch that is even crazier then Z’ress. I won’t lie, she can work wonders with that tight mouth on my cock. But, that is no matter. I have you now, you will be my key to raising in Ceremon’s ranks. You see, after Virra’s father never returned, I took it upon myself to take his place. Only now, there is nothing but ruins remaining. Z’ress and Ceremon can burn in an eternal fire together. I don’t give a shit.” He removed his hood, to expose his features. His skin was copper in hue, as he held high strong cheekbones and hazel eyes, proud lips that would possibly make women quiver. Aerian swore that she had seen individuals like him when she was but a child, yet, could not be sure. It was of the Earthly realm. A Native.

“Oh, shut the fuck up, Domi.” Virra suddenly said, dropping down behind him and drawing a blade over his neck.

He didn’t flinch, nor react other than a smirk forming on his lips. “Ah, Virra… The one girl that refused to give me anything other then a fight…”

Aerian actually looked amused by his words “Your just not,” she rolled her shoulders “Well let’s just say you’re not equipped to handle my girl,” she couldn’t help the chuckle, “So you worked for her dad, tried to get in her pants and got shot down, got hired my head case grandfather, your boss pissed off my step mom and she kinda spilled his blood all over our jail cell floors, quite a bitch to clean up. And then you fall into the employ of Xulljra, who blows you and you aid her in kidnapping my sister, and in the process REALLY pissing off my step mom, and my dad and both are out to kill one or all people involved, your odds my friend do not look good here”

She stopped in though “Did I miss anything baby?”

“Nope. I think you got it all. But, one more thing. You though you used them…but, you are a tool and right now, you are a distraction from Xulljra escaping. You have fulfilled your purpose and now are of no use to them. They could not care less from this point forward, that which happens to you.” Virra pressed the dagger more tightly against his throat, as a sudden realization formed on his face in defeat. “So in all this, you are a loose pawn now. Which side will you choose, Domi?” She parted her lips to drag the slick tongue sluggishly over his cheek, watching Aerian. “What should we do with him, Firefly?”

Aerian drew her own blade as she closed in on him now “I would like to cut his throat and walk away, he did try to put an arrow in our heads,” she spun the blade in the palm of her hand with a smirk “But that makes me no better than him, and my dad is always telling me not to kill unless we have to, so” She placed the blade against his groin and drew it up along his body slowly “If he tells us where she’s going, maybe we can work something out?”

Domi was now between to females, with weapons drawn. One against his neck preventing him from moving while the other was running hers against his frame. He only had one choice and he knew it by the look in his eyes. “She is going back to Ceremon and Z’ress but had to make a detour north to avoid getting caught. I…I can help you.”

“Well that was easy,” Aerian smiled as removed her blade from his body and tucked it away “But just so we’re clear, I have no reason to trust you and Virra apparently really doesn’t like you,” She stopped looking to Virra “He really that bad? I mean he doesn’t look the gentlemanly type, and he did try and put an arrow in you, and not in the good way either”

Aerian squared her shoulders “But either way help us and we will consider letting you go, you never know might even get to see something fun, but try and get us killed, or try to kill us and well I’m sure you can put it better baby,”

Domi appeared relieved at Aerian’s words, even more so after the blade from Virra was removed, his shoulders lessening in tension. Virra spun the dagger in her hand to sheath at her hip, moving to stand beside Aerian. “He wasn’t so bad, we are the same age and he was going through a hormonal stage. Though, he did respect when I told him no, I’ll give him that much. But, right now, he holds information that could be beneficial in getting your step-sister back. You forget, I did attack Ascondia, your father and Aishani before I was drawn in by them. I haven’t looked back, though, it is amusing that Domi is in the same position.”

“We more or less grew up together.” Domi stated, while a smirk formed on his lips. “Oh, I do enjoy fun. But, you want your step-sister. I will help you to get her back, I never cared for their plan in the first place.”

“Yea, does seem a little strange he’s where you were a year ago, but we freely give chances, as long as you prove useful, you can stay with us, once we find Xulljra and my sister you can go where you wish and we wont stop you” Aerian stopped to look at him “Sound fair?”

Domi looked between the two, resolutely sighing. “Doesn’t seem I have much of a choice in it.”

Virra smirked and patted him rather hard in the back, causing him to stumble forward. “Well get to it then.”

Domi cast her a glare then chuckled. “Very well. Follow me. That is if being with an Elcarus hadn’t softened you.” He took off and vaulted into a tree. Waiting for them before continuing north, leading from one tree limb to another. Virra easily kept up with him as our appeared it was a challenge between old comrades.

Aerian didn’t miss a step as well placed foot and grabbing of a branch vaulted her up behind them, staying behind Virra and Domi. There was a grace to each move she made, landing on a branch before leaping to the next, a throw back to hers days a bounty hunter, which for Aerian just made it fun.
Suddenly she extended her stride enough to land within ear shot of Domi “Maybe if you’re a good boy I’ll consider paying you for your help, maybe that will help you feel a little better, not quite a slavers traders wage, but enough to make sure your comfortable, and taken care of in any way you need, I’m not unreasonable I just don’t like people coming into my home and taking what isn’t theirs, makes me very cranky,”

“I didn’t take a damn thing.” Domi muttered while glancing to Virra then spoke clear to Aerian. “We have to be careful. We are nearing their camp and rendezvous point.”

Virra nodded to him, it seemed that she too was enjoying this jaunt through the trees as much as Aerian.

Domi took off again only this time he was more cautious in his sounds and movement through the trees. Until he stopped and lowered himself down to the ground, Virra followed and he pointed to something ahead.

What they saw was a carriage and five soldiers outside. Next was a sight, Ascondia was present with a bundle in her arms and climbing within.

As the sight below unfold Aerian froze, something she hadn’t considered since learning of Xulljra capabilities was that her vision was in fact not implicating her mother at all, she leant back to regain her composure “Jeez you think being able to see the future I would have seen that coming, you know I can’t go down there,”

Her heart hammered in her head as she felt panic rise through her, another thing Aerian was far from accustomed to, but this wasn’t just about her anymore. “But we can’t let them get to Elvera either,”

Virra seemed to register Aerian’s words now, glancing to her then to Domi. “Looks like it is you and me.”

“Like old times. We made a killer pair.” Domi nodded taking position with his bow. The form was expert in the square shoulders and posture and now Aerian saw the gloves specially made for archery.

Virra nodded and began to run at the men around the coach with knives flying, daggers then drawn. Just at that same time an arrow screamed plunging into the drivers neck. Watching it was like an intimate dance, Virra moved with dealt precision and Domi covered her sending arrows after those behind her.

The fight was over just as quickly as it began but no one left the carriage.

Aerian crept closer as she watched the scene below, she knew better than to get close to things down there, at least until Xulljra was in their custody.
Once the fight had ended, Virra went to the carriage to open the door but stopped and stared. Leaning in and what she withdrew was a note and swaddled rock, looking at it confused. Domi tucked his bow into the quiver and joined her with confusion on his face as well. They both left the carriage to hand Aerian the note.

–So close. But not quite.–

Aerian raised a brow in confusion looking to Domi, and then to Virra “How the hell did she slip past three of us?”

Virra inhaled deeply, though, Domi looked to Aerian with his hazel eyes. “Perhaps she was never here to begin with…”

“I saw mum, I saw her, we all did?” Aerian snapped back, her emerald eyes blazed with frustration as she kicked at one of dead soldiers.

Virra went to place a hand on Aerian’s shoulder, in order to seek calming her. Domi moved into the carriage the wood and wheels creaking a slight but then he emerged. “Runes are all over within the carriage…” Just as he spoke, they saw Ascondia go to the open door but she was transparent, appearing to go through a series of repetitive movements. Once within it took a time for the scene to play out once again, that is when Domi closed the door and it stopped. “She is a master of illusion… That bitch tricked me.”

“I’m going to fucking kill her” Aerian snarled angrily as she drew a dagger and launched it into the carriage door, her emerald eyes appeared to be now blazing as she snarled in frustration.

“Calm down Aerian” The figure shimmered in, tall dark haired and a presence about him that drew your attention “She’s not that far ahead, she needed time to set up the illusion and buy of guards to sell out their lives, losing your head is not going to help”

“Haunted? Your supposed to fucking watching over my sister not wasting time!” Aerian barked darkly

“I have my eyes on her, advantages of being dead, now get your ass in gear and get after this bitch before she gets back to Elvera and vanishes behind walls you can’t penetrate, you have a day at best to catch her before you hit an army of dead a hundred and fifty thousand strong that surround the castle on all sides,” Haunted replied firmly. His tone remained level even if the look on his face said he was not used to his neice speaking to him in such a way.

Aerian walked to the carriage as she eyed Domi carefully, before snatching her dagger from the door and placing it back at her hip, “We need a better plan than playing catch up”

Virra looked to Aerian as her act of comfort wasn’t accepted or acknowledged. Though as Haunted came to present, a small smirk appeared on her lips. But by that time Domi was walking away after checking the ground, heading in the direction of Elvera.

Virra then looked to Aerian and took her hand to drag her after her. “We could use the help of unicorns or dire wolves right about now.”

“She’s on foot. Difficult to carry a new born on a horse.” Domi said from ahead, while his backside was rather enticing.

“He’s got a cute butt…” Virra snickered, while trying to lighten Aerian’s mood.

“Who Domi or Uncle Haunted?” Aerian teased in reply, as she watched Domi she felt a sudden urge creep through her, “I think Deshan hunts around here somewhere, she may be able to help, Uncle Haunted mind going and looking for her for us?”

Haunted nodded and vanished into the aether of the realm almost as quickly as he’d appeared, meanwhile Aerian watched Domi once more”Hey Domi, take a look at this,” She called and almost immediately turned into a deep kiss with Virra.

Virra snickered while lowering her hand to curl into Aerian’s, as they walked behind Domi enjoying the view. But as Aerian called to him, he turned to look in their direction expecting clearly that they found something. Instead his eyes grew large in surprise, as a smirk formed on his lips.

Virra fell into the kiss with fervor, in the departure gently she drug her teeth lightly against Aerian’s plump lower lip. Then laughed in the departure, pulling Aerian closer.

The shock melted away to irritation as he flipped them off and began to walk more briskly ahead.

Virra lightly spanked Aerian. “You’re bad…”

“I can be” Aerian replied dangerously, a tease in her voice now as she moved to catch upto Domi “Don’t sulk, I’m just trying to lighten the mood, or hmm maybe I’m just a big tease with bad intentions,”

She stopped as she looked at the sky overhead, one of the rare breaks in the canopy of the forest overhead, “Damn it’s going to be dark soon,”

“What, do you turn into a pumpkin at dark?” Domi chuckled while glancing to her. “I couldn’t give a shits less, what mood you are in. That was just cruel, two beautiful and strong women, making out before me? I can’t lie that made my dick twitch.”

“That’s all it will do. Keep that snake locked away. ” Virra moved to Aerian’s side now, following her gaze upwards, then looked to the red-head, shaking her head with a smirk. “You know, we should really continue to move. We need the upper hand in this, Xulljra doesn’t know the area and will have to camp. Any advantage we can take will have to be exploited the best we can.”

“Was hoping for more than a twitch” Aerian smiled darkly “But anyway we need to slow this bitch down, the best places to put down for the night aren’t so far ahead, Aerian froze now as a pair of eyes appeared in the tree line, a dark amber as they looked at the three.

Finally the pale grey wolf slinked from the forest and made its way to Domi, circling him slowly before moving to Virra, finally closing on Aerian and stopping before sitting infront of her, “Deshan, such drama”

Aerian shook her head with a smile “You find her” the wolf simply ignored her licking its paw for a moment before looking back to Aerian.

“She has a small camp not too far ahead, her and two heavily armed guards, and a baby, which is who you are looking for right?” The wolfs voice was soft and female as she spoke she kept her eye on Aerian.

“My step sister, born to my father and his wife, taken without our consent” Aerian replied softly

“Or knowledge, else why else would you be out here? They know you can track, but even you need help? One smells like you and the other is just lucky to be here?” There was an amusement to her tone now as she spoke.

“He is helping us, me and my fiancée, retrieve my sister, then we plan to end this war,” Aerian replied

“With wolves and dragons and Unicorns the full force of The Everlands thrown against a single city, still that is for another day, we can come through the forest through the dire lair,” Deshan stated softly “She wont see or even smell you coming, you’ll have the advantage and trust me when I say you’re going to need it,”

Virra glanced to Aerian surprise, written on her normally composed features to the mention of more then a twitch. She then chuckled with an amused shake of her head, though, stopped mid-step as the amber eyes appeared from the tree line. A hand on her dagger’s hilts, though, hesitated as the wolf that slunk out appeared to circle Domi, whom actually surpassed Virra and had his hunter’s knife withdrawn. When the wolf plopped down and Aerian spoke, Virra relaxed with a chuckle and Domi returned his knife to it’s sheath.

“Then we don’t have a moment to loose.” Virra commented gathering Aerian’s hand.

“You two are engaged?” Domi stared at Virra and then Aerian, his mouth hung open.

“Oh, close that trap, else you will catch more then bugs…” Virra muttered appearing annoyed by his comment, though, flicking him on the nose in the passing. “Show us the way, Deshan.”

“Stay with me, my pack are hungry and intolerant of those with two legs,” Deshan warned darkly “The dires don’t trust many, so if you stray its on your own head”

Aerian looked at Domi with a smirk before looking to Virra “Better no get ourselves eaten in a less than fun way then,” Every word Aerian said had been deliberate as she drew Virras hand to her lips, the group disappearing back into the forest following Deshan.

Suddenly the ground dropped into low path that disappeared into a darkened cave. As Aerian slowed she looked beyond the cave into the darkness.

“You have a light spell?” Deshan asked as she rounded on them now, Aerian nodded and flicked a small ball of light into the air, Deshan seemingly smiled and again led them on an into the cave. The cave was full of dires, all of them now eying up their visitors.

Domi caught Aerian’s smirk and comment, chuckling while moving to stand near to Aerian. “I like her, Virra.” He said in amusement.

Virra cast him an irritated glance, then to Aerian as the kiss upon her hand caused her to relax. “Keep dreaming, lover boy.”

He simply shrugged while moving with the two women and the dire wolf through the forest, all the while all of them were aware of their surroundings. Once at the drop to the ground, Virra removed her hand from Aerian’s to allow her time to project the ball of light, a faint smirk on Virra’s ruby lips in the flickering shadows.

Once within the cave, the term within a wolf’s den gave new meaning, while they walked through. The sense of prey was thick in the air while the dire wolves watched them with critical and mistrusting canine eyes. Virra returned her hand to Aerian’s, allowing for the creatures to acknowledge their relationship while Domi kept close to the woman. At one point, Aerian felt him bump into her bottom but then a passing hand was upon her cheek, she could tell he had strong hands and rather large, but not freakishly so, such of a man. Virra hissed to Domi at one point, perhaps, he was copping a feel at both.

Aerian growled at his touch, nothing more than a polite tease in response, as the low humof the dires could be heard Aerian pulled herself togther “Alright we’d better knock this game of sexy cat and mouse on the head for now, else we will actually be lunch”

“My pack is hungry, dragons in our skies, it does not make us easy about hunting” Deshan rumbled darkly, the path curved and then began to lead back up, the sound of water ahead told them they would soon be clear of the caves.

“Hunt and eat, the dragons are bound to my father by the laws he set down, they will not harm you or yours, my father has his pact with you and yours as well, we will honour them” Aerian replied softly.

The path dipped and Aerian felt her feet get wet as she groaned “The river?”

Deshan chuckled “A short way, she is camped right on the edge, you will have no further trouble with finding her, I will have a small pack ensure she doesn’t run again”

Virra glanced to Aerian. “You started it.” She chuckled, though glanced down at the water. “Very impressive, Deshan. Tell you what… your wolves are hungry and we are about to kill a bitch. So why don’t we more then help each other out?”

Domi was further away now, but crouched low and pointed. “I smell smoke and see flames in the distance.” He straightened as Virra stood at his side. “Have your pack block any exit but the river, it is harder to cast amidst running water.”

“I really should have brought my bow, could take the bitch out from here and never have to fucking worry” Aerian muttered darkly as she crouched between Virra and Domi, her eyes on the fires ahead.

“You are half-angel and vampire, do you really NEED the bow and arrow?” Virra smacked her on the bottom, while moving forward to utilize a path for the others to follow and tread softly on the water with as little sound as possible. Domi glanced to Aerian with a impish grin, this sparked in his hazel eyes, causing him to be attractive, handing her his bow and quiver.

When they arrived closer, they found the sight of four heavily armored men gathered around a fire with a tent set up not to far. Suddenly a scream shattered the silence, as it appeared to be the cry from a baby, it was panicked and shrill. Inside this tent was a figure moving while rocking something in the arms.

Aerian drew two arrows, knocking them as she crouched on the waters edge, as she let lose the arrows were on target and clean taking two of the guards down the other two further back within the camp had their backs turned and were unaware of the sudden turn in numbers.

Aerian slid up to Virra “Don’t need the bow, I just prefer to even my odds, now how about you and Domi go shut the other two up before they notice the new holes in their buddies heads, then we can deal with the shape changing gutter whore, and go home,” she kissed Virras neck gently.

Virra glanced to Aerian at the kiss to her neck, nipping playfully in her direction. Domi did his best to ignore the interaction between the two but Aerian caught the sideways glance from his eyes. Though, Virra and Domi worked like an oiled machine together, moving silently behind the remaining two men, each slitting the throat of the man with hand over the mouths. Quietly dropping them, and waving in Aerian, still now it seemed as though the screaming from the baby was trying to tell them where she was.

They waved over Aerian now, sights fixed on the tent. Closer there was a figure within trying to coddle the child and silence the cries. Virra and Domi with Aerian snuck to the tent, pushing the flap. Everything happened seeming at once, when they entered Domi cried out in pain and crumbled to his knees holding his head.

Standing in the warm tent was a woman, a female drow. She had snow white hair that flowed beautifully down to her waist, white eyebrows appeared to be drawn on her face while her skin was an incredible shade of black and her eyes were crimson. Upon her was a purple dress that held a slit to the hip on the right side, the scoop neck revealed far more skin then what would deem necessary. The female was stunning, elegant and oozed female prowess. In her arms was a bundle, the golden eyes were wide and frightened, while the small round face was a pale ashen skin tone and the tiny bud shaped lips were open to reveal the horrid pitched sound. “This is beginning to be even more a problem then I had figured…” Her voice was the most alluring thing, a husky tone dipped in honey.

Aerian felt a prickle through her body, she silently squared her shoulders as she knelt beside Domi “Shake it off, we need you right now” her words were soft as she laid a hand on his shoulder a short flicker a electricty darted over him, enough to dull the ache in his head.

“You have my sister, and I am running out of patience,” Aerian stated darkly as she rose back to her feet, “Your sister wants her baby back, funny thing though she said nothing about the state you were to be left in,”

Xulljra remained calm and poised, as the baby squirmed and wailed. Those crimson eyes fixed on Aerian, while Domi was helped to stand by Virra, left panting as her will over him was dulled. Suddenly Xulljra began to laugh, it was cold, cruel even a little maniacal. “You really think, I fear you, child?” She looked down to the babe in her arms. “This infant is an abomination to the bloodline that the House Tor’tar stand for being of the Twelve.”

Virra was too distracted with supporting Domi and it happened fast. She tossed the child and with a force utilized a dork to push a path to escape the tent.

Xulljra was able to push past knocking Aerian who’s attention was on the falling child, a sudden rustle and the air fell deathly cold, as the child’s ascent slowed Aerian was able to pluck the young girl from the air.

As she got to the small infant she smiled softly before handing her off to Virra “You need to hold her right now” she whispered as the hand off occured Aerian buckled to the ground.

Virra accepted the baby, though, before Aerian could fall to the ground she felt a sudden support from behind her with surprisingly strong hands, a look back, Domi was behind her. “Firefly, are you okay?” Virra asked, concern in her voice while leaning forward the infant held her arms out to Aerian. “I think, she likes you.”

Aerian coughed hard as she felt the power drain before she turned with a smile to Domi “Your quick, thanks” She looked to young child now her eyes settlin as she smiled softly.

“I’m OK, I think, same vein as the judgement blade unlike mom I cant stop or reverse or hop through time, but I can slow it just enough to stop a baby from hitting the ground, something about the way mom and dad, damnit I couldn’t explain it if I tried. Except I don’t unless I have to,”she sighed softly “I’ll be feeling that one for a while”

She finally extracted herself from Domis grasp before walking to Virra and her sister, “We should get her home, then we can all rest easier together” Aerian stated gently.

“Well, it seems that she is grateful.” Virra said softly, looking down to the child, those golden eyes were intelligent and the lips formed into a smile and an excited gurgle. She looked to Domi then to Aerian. “Seems, she escaped…”

Domi suddenly adjusted with Aerian in support to sweep her off her feet, held in his arms which were surprisingly solid, hidden beneath his hoodie. “I think, we should cut our losses. At least, your sister is safe.” He said softly, while looking to Virra with a child. “You know, you actually look good like that…”

“Oh, fuck you, Domi.” Virra snapped while her voice was irritated, though, expression softened as the tiny hand clamped upon a finger. “Let’s head back.”

“We ALL?” Domi said with a smirk, clearly utilizing Aerian’s words against her. “I like that idea.”

Virra pushed past the tent flap with a roll of her eyes and shake of her head.

Aerian smirked as Domi reiterated her words, as she sauntered past she stumbled allowing him to glance down the deep valley of her breasts push tightly together by the top she wore, “The baby likes Virra and she kinda likes you, well she hasn’t killed you yet anyway, come on lover boy, we could use the help to end this war”

Domi glanced over his shoulder to Virra’s leave, then to the visual that Aerian presented, licking his lips but swept her off her feet to be held in his arms. “That is the only good thing that is coming.” He said calmly, walking through the tent flap, but he was strong and carried Aerian as though she weighed next to nothing. It was time for the trio to return back to the estate with the infant and Aerian’s sister. Now, in her position held in her arms, she got a good look at him. The strength in his jawline and high cheekbones addition of the copper skin tone, gave him an exotic appearance. There was something different about him, but, the fact that Virra hadn’t killed him meant something.

[Ending A War] A New Generation Arrives

Heart and Stacy made their way to the main hall, as they came in Kane was stood by the fire his hands held to the flames. The trip had taken around 3 days and made much easier travelling through the new underground.

“Any problems?” Kane asked

“No, it’s eerily quiet down there, but far safer than the roads” Heart replied

“Very well, get yourself settled and then see what Stacy needs to prepare for the birth” Kane replied, Heart nodded gently and made his way to the guest rooms.

“Everything OK between you two? You seem a little frosty Kane” Stacy asked quickly.

“Yes, just a while since he has been in Dentarius, drags up a few less than happy memories is all, we’re fine it may just be awkward for a day or two,” Kane rolled his shoulders in reply

“I see, well I need him here Kane, he is aware of what I’ll need while we bring those two bundles of joy to our world, wasn’t like we had much else to talk about on the way here, so please try to be nice,” Stacy replied.

Just then, Aishani entered, pausing to look behind her then to Kane and Stacy, a hand on her stomach while she proceeded to near Stacy. Embracing her and then holding her shoulders gently with a smirk. “I’m so relieved you made it. Where is Heart? I thought I just saw him.”

“He has taken our things to guest quarters, seems him been in Dentarius is throwing your husband. I thought they were best friends? Yet suddenly such a gap between them,” Stacy replied a tone of failing in her words, “But I am glad to be here, my training by the realm now complete, so I am ready to help bring your children to the world, Sarantha sends her regards, before disappearing off to where ever it is the dead go when they aren’t bugging the living,”

Aishani looked from Stacy to Kane, placing a hand on his forearm. “My love for as much as I hate to say this, perhaps you should come to terms with him. He has done so much for me and you. I’m not sure what had happened in the past, perhaps to bury the hatchet.” She grunted softly. “They are hungry my love.”

“Oh I long since gave up been angry with him, just the memories still are a grievance is all,” Kane replied softly “He is as a brother to me, but somethings are harder to ignore when reminded”

There was a softness to his voice now “So Stacy, we have all we need just a matter of time before they arrive?”

Stacy nodded “Yes, which by the looks won’t be too much longer,”

Aishani looked from Stacy to Kane, while growling beneath her breath and storming from the hall and heading directly to the guest rooms to find Heart.

Heart was laid on the bed his eyes closed as he took in the sounds of the mansion beyond the heavy stone walls. Quietly happy to be home even if it was temporary, though truth be told he had long since made himself a home in Emerald City, so being here was oddly off putting to him now.

The door opened without a knock and Aishani stood in the frame, eyes a clear gold. “Explain to me what happened between you and Kane. I would prefer not to have the ice between the two of you any longer. So out with it.” Heart would catch that primal undertone to her voice.

Heart sat suddenly as he looked to her “Not really sure this should be coming from me, but the reason Kane gets kinda pissed off, and the reason I was banished from my home is because I stupidly made the mistake with sleeping with someone I knew better than to sleep with, but hey we both didn’t think we’d see the other side of the Dragon War, it seemed like a good idea right up until her father found out about it”

There was a strange tone to his words as he looked to her “Kane was OK about it for a while, then he wasn’t, I knew sleeping with Aerian would come back to haunt me, but then I am who I am”

Aishani closed the door moving into the room now too settle on the edge of the bed. Looking to him for a moment in silence, then caressed her belly. “Did you ever apologize sincerely for the situation and explain yourself? I know Virra wouldn’t be pleased, but it is in the past. Much has since happened.”

“It’s why I never returned, rather than him being reminded, it made sense, he is as close as it gets to family, and I’m the last of the Rayhearts, at least this leaves my family’s legacy in one piece and our friendship as well, that being said I miss my home,” Heart sighed softly “But I do love my work in Emerald City so, it isn’t so bad, he will be fine soon enough just memories kicking him where he least needs them to,”

Heart looked to the bump with a smile “You both have enough to worry over, without adding a minor inconvenience to the mix, I will handle Kane I promise you that, you worry about your side of things,”

“Not good enough, Heart. You ARE family. Get your ass up and face it. I want the two of you to forgive.” She stood with a faint groan, comical at best. “Wipe that smirk of your face. Come.”

Heart had more than enough sense than to argue with an Elcarus, he stood and he followed her to the main hall where Kane and Stacy were still conversing over preparations for the birth, as the entered Kane looked up, raising a brow.

“This is the part where I say I’m sorry for being such an ass, and that I forgive you?” There was amusement to his words as he looked from Heart to Aishani though the look in her eyes told him he’d better not take things so lightly.

“Apparently so,” Heart replied

“Well I do, I did a while ago actually, just it’s been a while since I honestly never even gave it thought, you coming home it’s kind of a kick in the memory centres, which it seems work better than I give them credit for” Kane replied

“So not angry with me?” Heart replied bemused now

“For sleeping with my daughter? Hell yes, you know I am one of few who actually couldn’t care less what you do, and you do it well, so there’s that my family was always off limit, however after having my ear chewed off for days by Aerian I get it, so I forgave, and you left, and I left and the realm was hurting, I forgot over it in time and I forgave, truthfully Heart you have always had my back, so it’s rather shameful I acted as I did, even back then, your as close to family as it gets without being blood, and honestly if I didn’t trust you with my life I wouldn’t trust you with my wifes or the realms Healer,”

Heart looked to Kane for a moment before looking to Aishani and the back, he drew a breath “And I never apologised, not properly,”

“Don’t” Kane replied calmly “I get it, just keep away from my daughter or I fear Virra may break your neck,”

Aishani inclined a brow to Kane at three veiled threat with a soft growl and beast of her teeth. “Let our daughter decide that, not you. He IS family as you said, don’t place any more strain them need be.”

Kane smiled softly “I have missed you old man!”

“Old, says the guy with a decade on me! The girls keep me young!” Heart chuckled in reply “But I thank Aishani because I’m fairly certain she has been inclined to knock sense through that thick skull of yours from time to time”

“Don’t push your luck, and don’t think she wouldn’t kick your ass for the same reasons!” Kane chuckled walking to the bar to pour a glad of something resembling whiskey for the two of them.

Stacy looked to Kane then Aishani “What is it with men, bonding and alcohol?!”

As she spoke Kane suddenly looked up before making his way around the back of the bar, with a thud and a noise of something being moved he emerged a thick leather bound book in hand “Almost forgot, and sure if I don’t turn this over soon Sarantha is going to be haunting me! It’s the healers Grimoire, passed through every healer since the dawn of The Everlands”

Aishani chuckled while the men spoke, both hands in her swollen belly and moved to sit with a sigh. “Boys, will be boys.” At the thump of the book all attention shifted to Kane on the counter. Aishani forgotten for the moment as she looked in the flames, beneath her upon the chair a wet spot grew, feeding the fabric. “Uh…I don’t mean to alarm anyone. But…” A sudden growl ripped from her with fangs extended.

Kane cleared the bar in one bound quickly followed by Heart and Stacy as he slid into position beside her his eyes looking to the wet “Well that’s one way to get my attention my love”

Aishani nodded her head to him, attempting to control her breathing, curling her hands at the arm of the chair with claws coming forth to latch.

“We should get her upstairs,” Stacy stated simply

Heart and Kane aided Aishani to her feet, before Kane swept her into his arms with as much care as he could muster. As he watched her there was a shine to his eyes that he was rather excited in this moment.

Aishani was shaking in Kane’s arms, he could literally feel the strength of her contractions as they moved up the stairs. Her breathing was labored in pain, while growling and latching her claws into his shoulders. She met his gaze with her clear glowing golden eyes, as the cursing then started.

Kane laid her on the bed as Stacy began placing candles down, the air quickly filled with a scent of freshness, she shooed Heart off to find fresh towels and hot water.

“Alright Aishani, I do hope you’re ready to do this,” Stacy almost sang the words

“I’m right here my love” Kane added softly

Heart quickly returned with the items required before placing them down, gently he squeezed Aishanis shoulder before moving to the side to serve as aid to Stacy.

“I don’t think I can tell them to wait!” Aishani howled, latching to Kane’s hand. “Whoa! Fuck…stay in there dammit! At least until the war is over…” She held her legs open, while panting and trying to recover her breathing. She was the wolf now, the sound and sweat was glistening on her body.

Kane stayed beside her his hand intertwined through hers as was his rightful place as father and husband, “Seems they want out my love, let’s bring them to the light it only gives us another reason to end this war quickly, together,”

Heart smiled softly watching as his best friend gave every fibre in support, something he truthfully wondered if he would ever truly experience, but on the other hand Hearts life was far simpler and that’s how he liked things.

“Just focus on the now Aishani, one step at a time,” He stated gently, though he had never been around a woman giving birth something he had always tried avoid.

“Mmm, well then, you know your body, so as you are ready, and they aren’t going to wait, we should be ready to bring them home to the realm, in your time Aishani,” Stacy made her words soft, but there was comfort in them at least she intended there to be.

Aishani howled in pain, clutching to Kane’s hand in a powerful hold, legs spread while she was panting. She felt another contraction that sent her into the mattress of the bed, as her body was ready and Aishani wasn’t nearly as ready. “They can’t come! Their room isn’t finished!” She cried out desperately, but, gritted her teeth folding herself forward a slight in a push. Falling back to the bed, the curses continued to flow from her lips, the undertone of the wolf present as her eyes were both a brilliant gold and fangs long. Her skin began to glisten with sweat as some fibres of her hair cling to her face.

Having missed the birth of Aerian, Kane felt connected to Aishani on yet another level in that moment.

He never moved from her side, soft words of encouragement were all he spoke, but a reminder that whatever needed to be done would be done, “Everything we need is close enough at hand, we can get things on track quickly enough, so let us focus on bringing our children to the world, together,”

The labor went on for hours, in all honesty it was difficult to say exactly how long, time seemed to hold no place here. But it was clear that Aishani was growing tired, her cursing had dimmed and all now was pale ashen skin and sweat that dripped around her face. She was pushing to Stacy’s urging but even this was difficult with the duration such took. Pleading to her that she couldn’t continue with tears down her cheeks. All the while still clinging to Kane’s hand. That when it was heard a squishy sound and plop, the first child was born.

Kane felt a rush of happiness as the first child made it the world, a quick slide down to cut the cord and Stacy handed off the child to Heart, already ready with a towel, as he placed the child down to check the child let a screech to announce it’s arrival. It took a moment but Heart finally stated “A healthy baby boy, congratulations,”

Kane returned his attentions to Aishani again his voice gently “Sorry my love but we’re not done yet, just one more, I’m right here”

The smile that formed on Aishani’s face was relieved and beautiful amidst the sweat and exhaustion. She laughed softly but this seemed to give her more determination to continue. She grunted and her screams were scratchy, but Aishani powered through it until the same sound announced another baby came into the world. To the excitement, after the final push her hand went limp in Kane’s hand and Aishani had passed out. Now as those crying babes echoed through the room, it had been two and a half days that Aishani fought through the labor.

Kane smiled softly kissing her head softly “Well done my love, rest I can take it from here,” Kane stood slowly feeling bones crack back into position, not once had he left her side the whole way through. As he and Heart now tended the children, Stacy was quickly weaving magicks to help Aishani heal internally, ensuring any damage would not be fatal.

“They’re gorgeous Kane, not that they weren’t going to be have you seen their mother?” Heart chuckled softly, Kane simply smiled in reply.

“Thank you, both of you” He stated softly now, the children had already settled both exhausted from the labour themselves, as Kane watched them for a moment “Can you watch them for a little while?”

“Why?” Heart asked quickly

“Need to finish the nursery, one less thing for my wife to worry over,” He replied softly

“You need rest too Kane, it doesn’t do you good to be exhausted, the nursery can wait, as long as the cribs are ready that’s all that matters.” Stacy replied gently.

The children were dark in skin but much lighter then Aishani being half-vampire half-wolf each had a thick tuft of black hair. One, the female was looking around with brilliant clear golden eyes, as the boy was sleeping.

Kane was sat beside Aishani, as he watched her sleep he finally made his way to the cribs that now held the children, a vampire, wolf hybrid was rare in the Everlands, the two sides usually choosing to stay away from each other, except those in service to Ceremon.

Kane smiled softly watching them “Don’t worry, we got this covered, we will end this war and you two will grow up to be just as blessed as I have been, and hopefully half the trouble of your big sister”

The female baby looked to him, surprising that her neck held that much strength. She curled happily and curled those tiny hands forward to him, the intelligence within those eyes was surprising for one so young. A gurgle posted the rise bud lips.

Kane let his hand slip to hers, feeling her tiny hand curl around his finger, “Why do I suspect your going to be just as much trouble?” He smiled softly

The babe gurgled in response, a seeming smile on those rise bud shaped lips. When the tiny hands clasped around his, it was far stronger then normal. The male baby opened his golden eyes and began to cry, it was a panicked sound. The girl turned her head and responded with a chortle and the wailing creased.

Kane smiled softly watching how his children interacted, it amazed him to think they were finally here or that he would have entertained the idea of more children. That alone made him smile “How did I get to be so lucky? The two of you, your mummy, your uncle and his wife to be, your sister and her other half, what did we do to deserve such fortune?”

The girl gurgled again almost add though speaking in some unknown tongue to Kane. Add the boy remained silent in his own crib, chirped in agreement. But rolled over add though to teach his sister not entirely understanding that they were in separate cribs.

Kane looked curious at the fact that evidently they seemed to want to be together, “I promise it’s temporary, just until I finish your room. This is all we had for the moment, but see this house? Daddy rebuilt it, not once but twice over the years, so a duel crib shouldn’t be too far beyond me, though lets not get you too used to getting your own way,” he chuckled softly simply watching them, amazing seeing something so young clearly being so bright.

A soft voice spoke from behind Kane with a gentle hand on his shoulder. “Rest with your wife. The both of you are exhausted. I will tend to the little bundles of joy.” Stacy was behind him with a kind smile.

“Mmm thank you Stacy, be sure to wake us soon as they will need to feed,” He murmured softly.

“Of course. Now, shoo. Get rest.” Stacy chirped with a smile gathering a chair to sit by the two children.

Kane didnt argue a second time as he crawled into bed beside Aishani, not even bothered by the remnants of their childrens birth, but happy to be beside his wife now.

[Ending A War] A Little Distraction Can Be Fun

As Jade made her way through the house, she would turn into one of the darker corridors, struck from the darkness and dragged into one of the empty rooms, not a word said as the figure forced her into the wall keeping her turned away from him his body pressed tight into hers now.

He groped her still not giving away his identity as he did so, his breathing heavy against her ear as he growled into her ear “I’m going to fuck you, and you’re going to enjoy it!” It was rough and dangerous in tone, as his hand slid round  to close around her mouth before he stripped her free of her clothes.

Jade, taken by complete surprise struggled against the unknown assailant, though before she could call out for help the hand kept her sounds at bay. She still struggled to keep her clothing on but inevitably the crisp air clashed with her skin and the cruel wall crushed her bosom painfully against the stone surface. The only thing she could do was attempt to bite the hand out of reflex, just enough flesh to get a good hold to surprise her attacker enough to release her.

He growled darkly as he felt the bite before releasing her, turning is back so as to hide his identity though his words would inevitably give him away “Damn it, didn’t see that one coming and so unfair I don’t heal as quickly as my brother!”

Hades turned her to face with a smirk his eyes on her “Miss me?!”

Jade blinked to the reveal of Hades, part of her knew it was him but at the time it happened so fast that it left her head spinning. From the inside of her thigh, the succulent juices from her flower trickled down from her own burning loins. Though neared him to lift her hand to gently take his, looking to him as in this dim light he saw that fiery aura begin to grow, while the fox head illuminating over her own. The bite on his hand began to burn, then sting as the flesh repaired itself only leaving the remnants of blood. Now the fox reversed into his fiancée, as her tiny pink tongue lapped the blood.

“Well aren’t you just full of surprises my feisty little fox” His words rolled off his tongue as he smiled softly “I suppose I should have warned you ahead of my plans, but you looked so lost and vulnerable I couldn’t help myself, now how about you apologise properly?” The last of words came darkly his eyes watching her as he stripped himself.

She smirked, to most it was simply a small bashful smile, though Jades knew better. “Whatever do you mean…Master?” Jade stood back purposely exposing herself to his greedy eyes. No clothing upon her save for one mark, the bruise at her neck.

Hades drank her in, his eyes held that same predatory look that had surfaced before as he watched her for a moment, before the idea hit making him smile wickedly.

“Make yourself cum, right here,” He pointed the ground in front of him “Then we will see what I do with you,”

Jade appeared surprised at his words, looking down to the floor he indicated and lowered herself down upon the cold surface. She spread her legs to openly display the forming glistening petals, though began to glide a hand down to part the veil and with a diligent finger caressed her pearl. Tilting her head back with a moan, yet returning her brown eyes to rest on him, lower lip caught between her teeth.

Hades crouched watching her intently as she did as commanded, he edged close enough for her to see the rock hard form of his erection but not close enough for her to do anything, but as he had instructed. As he watched he growled “You little tease!” His words were dangerous and dark but his eyes remained on her actions as he let his hand stroke his own erection in reply to her.

She reached down to spread her flower open to him, while the other finger massaged the plump pearl giving him the visual of her dripping gates as it pooled beneath her. But then it happened he saw her waterworks as a squirt occurred in her release, a gasp followed by a whimper.

Hades slid forward to kneel between her thighs as he grunted a spurt of his own hot liquids landing across her stomach and breasts, a second spurt just below the third landing and mixing with her own juices as he smiled wickedly “Sometimes not touching can be just as fun,”

Jade gasped as his molten seed painted her skin, glistening in the dim light. She scooped up some with a finger from her bosom to lick clean, while still her legs were spread and Hades saw the throbbing of her flower.

Hades smiled watching her flower for a moment before he stood “Get dressed, we have work to do” there was a tone in his voice that made it all too clear he was going to draw things out with her for a while now.

Jade looked to him surprised by his change of course. “But…you said…” She whimpered adjusting to settle on her ankles while looking playing at him.

Hade began to dress as he looked over his shoulder “Oh you’re going to get fucked, you’re just not going to know when”

Jade blinked at his words, though, stood on trembling legs while moving to get dressed. She moved to be at his side looking up to him. “Then it’s time to teach you Tai Chi.”

“Sounds like a very good idea,” Hades replied with a soft smile.

[Ending A War] Past Present and Future Generations

Jade had finished making the breakfast which consisted of fruits, eggs over rice, then tea. This tea was particularly strong, but she poured a small bit into an empty cup in order to easily pour such when in the dungeon, periodically her fingertips would brush the bruise upon her neck lovingly. Only moments ago, she sent word for Kane that the breakfast was prepared would he wish to join her.

Kane was already waiting as she made her way toward the dungeon, quietly he eyed the bruise, before placing a hand on her shoulder.

“Everything OK?” There was no accusation only concern, it wouldn’t be hard to Jade to figure that he wouldn’t push should she decide to support the issue nor would her judge. It was the family concern for her.

Jade looked calmly to Kane as a hand left the tray with a balance at her hip with the other, fingertips lovingly caressing the bruise. But she offered him a smile as her hand returned to the tray. “Yes. I’ve given him a release of his demon, as my kitsune. He marked me. I trust and love him, Kane.”

“Very well, you trust him and I trust you” Kane replied with a smile before opening the door to the cells “Lets go unscramble my ex wifes head shall we?”

Jade offered a small nod, while smiling to him. “I do hope this does not kill her.” She muttered as they descended into the dungeons. Jade has placed the phial into the cup, when’s entering Ascondia’s cell, she immediately set the tray down to pour the tea in a conceal of the liquid already residing. Offering the woman the cup and sitting with her ankles tucked beneath her bottom. “How have you rested, Lady?”

“Sleep is all I can do, losing you’re freedom and your husband, it’s hard to cope with” Ascondia replied, as she reached for the cup and taking a long sip “But I’m glad you returned,” as Ascondia looked up she saw the bruise a wide smile curling her lip “He must have fucked you real good, or your tight enough to drive him crazy,”

Jade remained silent while offering her a bowl of the egg atop a bed of rice to eat. “He told me that only one other had survived his demon and that was Kane…” Her tone appeared rather hurt in the softness, looking to Kane then Ascondia.

“She’s looking for a reaction, she slept with Hades but she never went against his demonic half, she was afraid to,” Kane snapped quickly.

Asondia would have answered had she not suddenly screamed and hit the floor clutching her head. The screams were blood curdling as she writhed on the floor, clearly in pain, Kane quickly pulled Jade from the room and put himself between them.

Jade looked to Kane relief upon her features for the validation, but it was taken back by surprise to Ascondia’s screams of pain. Instead of leaving, Jade stood behind Kane peering from behind him at the sight. “Is it suppose to do that?” She whispered to him beneath the screaming.

“Honestly I don’t know, I’ve never needed to use this before now” Kane replied a tone of concern in his words now. As he finished Ascondia fell silent, her chest rising and falling rapidly, as she remained deathly silent now Kane edged in.

Jade moved forward now, lifting Ascondia into her arms and brushed some hair from her face. “Empty and wipe out the cup. The tea will help with strength.”

Kane did as instructed, Ascondia finally stirring as she suddenly bolted from Jade curling up in the corner of the cell. As Kane returned he looked to Jade then to Ascondia before handing Jade the cup.

“You with us now?” He stated softly

“Kane, what’s going on, how did I get here?” Ascondia’s voice was panicked now “And why am I in a cell in your fuckin dungeon?”

“Because right now my wife is very likely to rip your throat out, especially when you show up claiming to be my wife” Kane replied flatly, as he began to explain what had occurred since Ascondia arrived.

Jade took no offense as Ascondia bolted away from her, calmly she stood with the cup and simply offered it to Ascondia. “This will help.” But remained silent otherwise watching her closely as Kane explained.

Ascondia looked to Jade taking the cup with a nod “Forgive me, I could be quite harsh in my younger years, Hades is a good man now, he and I were never .. we didn’t mix well, he scratched an itch no more no less” She sighed softly now “So I am to be regarded as a threat to our daughter? Tell me you have a plan,”

“I do, but you’re going to need to remain here for now” Kane replied firmly.

Jade offered Ascondia a small smile and nod, there was hesitance in her actions, but she suggested to accept Ascondia’s apology. “So you knew what you were saying to me?” Jade stepped back, though to Kane’s affirmation of a plan Jade looked to him surprised.

“As I said I wasn’t very nice when I was younger, but I’m aware of what said and that was unfair of me,” Ascondia replied softly “And your plan?”

“You just need to trust me Ascondia” replied Kane

“I always have” Ascodnia replied gently

Jade looked between the two now, stepping back and gathering all items except the bowl of fruit and tea pot. “I’ll keep Aishani away to give you two some time alone.” She opened the door not waiting for response to head back to the kitchen. When she proceeded to clean the dishes, before gathering a raw piece of steak and juice too take to Aishani.

When she was about to knock the door opened, now Jade was face to face with the wolf, Aishani held the fangs and golden eyes glowing. Jade lifted the tray to her, silently.

Aishani sniffed and then stepped back to allow Jade entry. “He’s talking with her, isn’t he?” Aishani said calmly though her words were swept in a growl, gathering the tray and moving to sit and begin eating.

“Yes, Lady.” Jade said softly, closing the door behind her.

“I see.” She stated after washing down some meat with juice. “She better keep her fucking hands to herself.”

Jade simply smiled. “I know it isn’t Kane that you do not trust.”

Aishani continued to eat in silence now, while Jade remained standing before the door. “They are discussing the plan.”

“I need to know how much you remember, wiping your head seems a little extreme to me, so we need to know why, and how the hell they managed to take Elvera, the most heavily guarded place in the entire Everlands,” Kane started softly as Ascondia now settled onto the bed, Kane remained by the door.

“I don’t know, they were inside the walls before we had chance to react, Kane they have thousands of undead between here and Elvera, fields of them, and inside an entire army, they slaughtered everyone, man, woman, child except a few that Z’ress wanted left alive to keep Hareavor occupied and away from me,” She breathed darkly “At least before they were sent here, Hareavor and Bryant that street thieving slaver, so be wary of them Kane”

“Both dead” Kane replied calmly now

“I see, they stormed the castle, execute the last of the High Council, I had to obey or they were going to storm Dentarius and kill you all, they locked me up, Z’ress tried to get into my head, my pants too .. in the end they just scrambled my head and all I remember is waking up here, wanting you, like every other day I guess” There was a sadness in Ascondias voice now

“Yea but times have changed Ascondia and we need to clear your head, Aerian had a vision of you killing her, which is why you’re here and we are not there, though it doesn’t negate the danger to Aerian, so for now that’s what we need to fix, then we’ll think about taking back Elvera”

Jade watched Aishani silently as she devoured the rare steak, in less then a lady like fashion. Aishani realized now that Jade was watching and licked the blood from her lips. “It seems the children are hungry…”

“Yes. It’s been more and more lately…I haven’t told Kane but I’ve nearly been eating raw food every two to three hours…I have not wanted to worry him. But this is getting harder and harder. I even hear the heart beat off others and see the throbbing vein in the neck…” Aishani learned back with a sigh. “I think it could be the vampire need from the children.” Then it was after she spoke, her eyes finally registered the bruise. “He was violent with you…”

Jade caressed the bruise with a blush, looking down. “Everyone but Kane and Aerian were upset…please do not be. I…liked it.”

Aishani watched her and the wolfish grin appeared. “I just never took you for someone that would.”

“Is Aerian OK? Z’ress seems to believe she may still have a grasp on her, took great pleasure in telling me what she did to our daughter” Ascondia wiped the tear that would have fallen “And you say I’m a threat to her? I would never harm our daughter Kane you know that”

“Not intentionally at least” Kane replied

“This isn’t going to end well is it? You’re outnumbered and their strength far exceeds yours,” Ascondia sighed darkly

“Right there, see you just give up, you think we’re beaten, but we’re not, everything they have tried we have been ahead of, and we still, just trust we know what we are doing, not the first war we’ve had to fight and probably isn’t going to be the last”

Jade’s face darkened in color, while she looked down to her hands. “Yes. Well…the kitsune in me does and so do I. I want more.”

Aishani chuckled now. “Just be safe. In my world a kitsune is a demon that possesses sun individual.”

“I suppose I never thought about that before. It has been in my family for many generations.” Jade smiled to herself. “I suppose that Hades and I are not different after all.”

“You should go to him. I will be fine, have the kitchen send up two more steaks.” Aishani said while caressing her swollen belly. “They are really hungry today.”

“Yes. I will.” Jade rise and hurried to the door, speaking like this has her loins beginning to burn.

“Just be careful Kane, this is a very different fight, Z’ress is sharp, which makes Ceremon ever more dangerous as he seeks to prove himself to herself, they each use the other to their own end” Ascondia replied slowly “Please be careful”

Kane nodded as he stepped from the cell closing and then locking the door “Just rest, if you remember anything have them send for me, I’ll speak with Aerian about her seeing you but the door remains locked”

Ascondia nodded softly as she lay upon the bed and pulled the blanket over her, Kane made his way back to the main house then upto to the bedroom.

When he was in his way up the stairs, Jade nearly collided with him, appearing flustered at the bump that silently caused her to fall back on her bottom. “I’m sorry, Lord Kane!” She nearly squealed.

Kane reached down taking her hand and helping her back to her feet “Careful now, wouldn’t want you tumbling down the stairs and having to explain to my brother why his lover has a cracked skull” his words were soft and teasing.

He placed his hand on her shoulder with a smile then continued up the stairs, before making his way to the bedroom and knocking gently.

Jade offered him a quick nod and blush before rushing down the stairs to find Hades.

When Kane knocked on the door there was a response to enter, the voice of his wife and the mother of his children rang in his ears like a welcoming chime.

Upon entering, he found Aishani looking out the window with her hands caressing her swollen belly, in a white lace night dress. This only accented her ashen skin with the faint motherly illumination. “Ascondia survived, then?” Her voice held that all too familiar undertone growl of the wolf.

He crossed to her sliding his arms around her waist kissing the back of her shoulder “She did, and it seems Ceremon and your mother have put an army of undead between us and them, which I suppose is fortunate we have a dozen dragons to answer them with, she is calmer, and more aware now”

“That is good. It doesn’t surprise me, Z’ress is building up a wall between them and her. The best move of assault would be the dragons. Not ground but air assault, the dragons have more range then arrows or magic…” Aishani said but relaxed at his kiss upon her shoulder, gathering his hands to her belly, allowing him to feel the movement within. “They are restless…I believe it is getting closer to the time they greet the world. Here I am, giving birth, my love, would remove me from the equation. This battle needs me as well as you at the helm. Perhaps it is time to either go or call to Stacy…”

“We will recall Stacy to Dentarius, while there is a wall of dragons between us and them we have all the time we need, they also no longer have access to Ascondias magic, we will bring our children to the world and then we can go end this war. The war can be ended quickly enough once our children are no longer at risk, not that I believe they are of course” Kane smiled softly, “Let us deal with ourselves first. Now we have the rest of the realm safe only Elvera remains under their control and only with their people, Ascondia stated they had killed everyone within”

“Is that wise? Perhaps that is what they are waiting on for Stacy to come out of hiding…eventually it would happen.” She turned in his arms to look up at him.

“It may be, but the fact remains every Elcarus child has been delivered by the realms healer,” Kane sighed softly “I’d prefer not to be the one that breaks that tradition, we put a dragon on every side of the Mansion, triple the guards within the walls, between us, Hades, Jade, Virra and Aerian she is as safe as she can be, bring her an escort from Emerald City so she is watched at all times?”

Kane slipped from her for a moment retrieving a map that had recently been updated a new passage that stretched from the mansion to the outskirts of Emerald City, “We now have a direct underground route between the city and the Mansion, sealed both sides by magic unless we expressly allow entry, no one knows it exists except us and the guards that built it, who also ironically are now tasked with protecting it”

Aishani looked to Kane. “Without things seeming too suspicious, perhaps, Heart?”

Kane smiled softly and nodded “I’m sure he will welcome a chance to return home, even if it can’t be permanent” as he now walked back to her his hands resting on her stomach feeling the little ones within “They are getting more restless, we need to start preparing for their arrival,”

Aishani chuckled now, as Kane placed his hands on her belly, looking down them up to him. “I’ve been saying that for sometime. Only they have been getting worse.”

“They are hungry, and I suspect it is playing havoc with your diet my love, but they will be here soon enough” Kane settled against her gently with a soft smile

“I have no diet…my love.” She sat and began to eat, it was as though she hadn’t been fed in days. Her hands held the steak while she ripped and tore it, he saw the extension of her fangs help and her eyes glow that clear gold stating the wolf is present.

“I’m sorry to have inflicted you with such, troublesome children” His voice held a tease as he smiled softly watching her eat. “But you still look as sexy as the day we met, so it’s a win, win for me”

Aishani chuckled, while looking to him. “You have to say that, because I’m your wife.” She retorted with a smirk, licking her fingers cleaned and then slurped the blood and juices from the plate. But hesitated after done with a spotless plate.

“Oh I mean every word” He tried to feign a look of hurt at her words but wound up laughing instead “Besides, being so insincere would only result in you kicking my ass, something I am no hurry to experience,”

Kane took the plate from her placing it on the bedside table before capturing her lips in a deep kiss, tasting the blood on her only served to let his mind drink her in deeper, before he eased back “Every day I only end up loving you more Aishani Elcarus”

“Mhm. You make a good point.” She chuckled with a smirk, though gasped with a hand upon her belly. “Really? These two are still hungry…”

Kane raised a brow looking to her stomach “Perhaps the meat isn’t enough? They need something less ….” Kane paused realising what he was about to suggest to his wife “diluted …”

She looked to him for a moment, then down to her swollen belly with both hands roaming over the bulge. “Kane…are…you honestly suggesting what I think you are?”

Kane nodded softly “Apparently I am”

Aishani grunted again. “Seems…they like the idea. My love, I’m concerned. We need to send message to Heart right away. I fear it won’t be too long…” she grimaced attempting to adjust a slight.

Kane nodded softly as he made his way to the dresser, retrieving a silver goblet from within and his blade, quietly he drew it against his wrist to spill the red liquid within, just enough to to the goblet before it healed over of its own accord. He watched the liquid as it swirled within the goblet as he made his way back Aishani, awkwardly he held it toward her. “I will send word, have them head here via the underground tunnels, it should take less than a day.”

He placed the goblet beside her on the bedside table before pulling his cloak from his shoulder “Once the children are here, Heart can return to Emerald City to retake up his duties there,”

Aishani watched in silence as Kane slit his wrist to provide the liquor of life, such direly needed for the children. She accepted the goblet staying down into the crimson contents. “Oh fuck…don’t make this anymore awkward, my love. We are doing this for our children.” The goblet lifted to her lips, as he heard the silence hang the gulping had followed. She learned back with a gasp. “Thank you.” Aishani whispered as a hand caressed her belly. “This is the first time they are content…Yes, the sooner the better.”

Kane placed his hand on her shoulder gently “I’d say it gets easier but, I’d be lying, and rather poorly I must admit” He drew her up to stand before kissing her gently “But if it helps, then it’s worth it? Seems they have the vampire in them, let’s hope I have enough blood to keep them happy”

She stood now at his pull, greeting his lips with her own, chuckled with a nod and grasped his hand to place upon her belly. The movement within was stilled. “They are resting. I will only when it is needed.”

[Ending A War] Clearing the Mind

Aerian squeezed the last drops into a small phial, as she looked to Virra to a soft shrug.

“That’s it I think, this either unscrambles moms head, or it’ll kill her, we should get it to Jade,”

Virra nodded slipping from the edge of the table after watching the fiery female focus for a good few hours now. Moving to inspect the phial. “Let’s do it then. Sooner I can eat my fill of you.” She wrapped an arm around Aerian’s waist with a playful grope and grab of her bottom.

“Everything OK? Or do I need to need to remind Uncle Hades how he should be behaving as a Lord of our family?” There was an edge to her voice that was concern for a friend and member of the family, and a reminder she knew who he was inside.

Virra blinked for a moment, rather puzzled by Aerian’s words, looking around as they had not yet left the laboratory. “Whom are you speaking on, Firefly? Is that were he is in their room?”

Aerian shook her head clearing the vision “No Jade is in the kitchen, she just …” She sighed softly kissing Virra gently “We’ve been awake far too long, and I guess I’m tired”

As they entered the kitchens Aerian made her way to Jade, it was early morning, Aerian figured Jade would be preapring her mothers morning meal by this point as she smiled softly.

“I have the potion, god I hate that word but it is what it is,” She did note the bruises but remained quiet “Just be warned it will either clear her head, or it will kill her”

Jade glanced to Aerian and Virra as they entered, nodding to the words and accepting the phial. Virra though was not so quiet about the bruising around Jade’s delicate neck and instantly titled her chin up in a vice grip. The appearance was as though a strong hand nearly strangled her. “Who the fuck would dare hurt you like this…?” Virra growled, while Jade looked to Aerian for help, since a furious Virra was seething dangerous.

“Uncle Hades” Aerian replied blankly “We’re not going to push Jade, but remember you are family and we have your back, no matter who it is”

She moved to Virra placing her hand over Virras causing her grip to break, looking gently to Virra then Jade “We care for you, remember that as well”

Jade looked down as Virra was still oozing fury, a deep blush on her porcelain cheeks that slithered up her neck. “I-I know. We both needed it…and I like it rough, like that…” She whispered. “He marked me…”

Virra clutched her jaw tightly with a twitch of a muscle, Aerian has seen that furry in her fiance’s eyes. She turned quickly to leave the kitchen, it was clear that Virra want going to let this lay.

Aerian felt the anger that burned in Virra, the link worked both ways as she placed a hand on Jades arm “Be careful with him, I love Uncle Hades, but I never forget what he is inside, but we all have our demons, and you’re alive which means he knows where the lines are,”

She smiled softly and followed Virra from the kitchen catching her in one of the hallways “Bad memories?” She said softly

Jade looked up to Aerian with a show nod but turned back to the food and drink preparations. Though once out in the hall, she stopped Virra those dark eyes were daggers. “She was beaten? How the fuck is that normal? He had to have forced it. I’m mean look at Jade, she is so meek and shy…” Virra was shaking with rage.

“She wanted it, and Hades has been off lately, way off,” Aerian sank against the wall beside her lover softly as she took her hand “There is a constant battle in his head, between him and the demon in him, and that thing is no cake walk, he almost killed dad several times, but usually he suppresses it, it makes him twitchy and prone to mistakes, but she is alive, and she seemed happy, she would have run for the hills if not, I don’t think she’s afraid of him, and because she loves him, and he loves her,” Aerian was unsure if any of this made sense or if she was indeed simply trying to justify it somehow.

“We have to trust them Virra, and if it’s anything I promise if he went to far, family or not we will put him down,”

Virra looked to Aerian for a moment the anger not completely defused, but sighed. “At least, put my mind at ease…let’s go talk to him. I won’t be able to calm myself unless I hear from Hades…”

Hades was in the yard, already surrounded by several guards as they went at it Hades was fluid and accurate every strike landed was deliberate and well placed.Even as good as the Dentarian Guards were Hades new each move ahead of time, one thrown clear across the yard into the wall beyond as he landed on his feet in a crouch.

Aerian rolled her shoulders as they made toward him before he sent a knife through the air her way, her reflexes just as quick just as sharp as she took the blade from the air, “Careful or I’m going to think you’re trying to kill me, and I’m not 13 this time,” Her words were sharp as she spoke.

Virra gathered the blade to throw down to the ground, keeping her dark eyes on Hades. “We just saw Jade. She has a bruise around her neck and said you are the cause.”

“And your pissed at me? Because you think I hurt her out of spite, anger a hatred of people?” Hades replied before turning his gaze on Aerian “Or that I may be slipping, losing control of the dark inside?”

“She told us that she enjoyed it. But I wanted to hear it from you. I’ve been beaten and raped on more than one occasion, to recognize those marks. I could assume, though I’d rather give you a chance. Would Kane or Aishani see that you will need support.” Virra said calmly but there was a low growl to her voice.

“And considering, You, my niece, my brother and his wife are all under one roof, such acts would be suicide for me, especially right now. Yes I hurt her, not because I wanted to, but because I needed to in that moment. I need to be clear going into what we are in, the fight we’re in, Jade let me be me, just long enough to get us both off, she’s beautifully strong like that, I wouldn’t hurt her because I could, it’s more likely she could do more harm to me anyway, I love her” Hades replied, there was no conflict or excuse in his words now “So you take it as you need but I wont apologise for it,”

Virra exchanged a glance with Aerian, then looked to Hades, it appeared his words defused her temper for now. But, she didn’t respond to Hades’ words, taking Aerian’s hand in her own and left the courtyard. As they walked it was clear something weighed upon her mind quite heavily. Though when it seemed that no words were to be spoke, Virra spoke. “It was consensual. You said he has a demon in him…what happened to the two of you when you were thirteen? Do you trust, Hades?”

“Yea grandad used parts of dad, Krystal and Haunted, and himself which created Uncle Hades, he seemed to have ducked the vampiric side of the family and instead got a huge dose of chaos demon instead, which left unchecked causes him to go bat shit crazy.” Aerian sighed softly bringing Virras hand to her lips.

“I was sent back to the Everlands when I was about nine, seems that human kids are nasty and they pissed me off in a bad way which resulted in me trying to electrocute several of them, mum had no choice but to send me back. When I was youner Uncle Hades wasn’t who he is now, the demon unchecked uncontrolled, his logic was he couldn’t beat dad so instead, he beat me half to death and tried to throw me into the ravine, figuring killing me would be the best way to hurt dad. He failed, Uncle Krys got to me in time, and wasn’t long after that dad locked him away.”

Aerians words were heavy with the pain she held onto in those days “But at least Uncle Hades is capable of compassion, grandad left the human range of emotions, which ultimately led to him turning on him and in time coming to us, you take that out like grandad did the second time and you get Hareavor, ice cold, no regret, no remorse and even more unstable than Uncle Hades. So at least we have that going for us, we need him focused not battling with his inner demon, and in his case quite literally, my question though is what has you so rattled? I have seen you angry but this is a whole other level”

Virra stopped to look at the cottage as it now stood before them. “When I was younger, much younger. My Pops had a right hand man that used to torture and beat women that were captured or ‘rescued’ from the slave traders to a fate much worse, I was so furious when I spoke to my Pops about it that he didn’t believe me. Turned his head the other way, I had bruises on my body, most unseen, others much like Jade’s. In the end, I killed him but made it appear another group had done so. I was free though every time I see a woman with battered marks upon her I slip into a rage, remembering it all…”

Aerian felt her blood run cold as she heard Virras words, her eyes welled just for a moment “I … he does love her,” She barely knew what to say in that moment as she slid into Virras arms “He wouldn’t hurt us now, any of us,”

Virra wrapped her arms around Aerian, cradling her head gently against her shoulder. “I hope such is as you say, Firefly. But, it brought back memories is all. Don’t feel sad, nor sympathy to me. It was part of my life and made me the woman that loves you today. I’m only stronger from it and I did not wish Jade to be found in a situation that she truly did not wish.”

Aerian nodded softly “Just thinking of anyone hurting you, it sucks, past or present. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone either, and Hareavor ensured I could never …. not with a man anyway, not sure if it sucked because of what it was or how he was, or because in some twisted way he was family, which when you look at the rest of us who’d die for each other,” She sighed softly “Come on, you made a threat to eat me, and it’s already been too damn long since we were alone, so you can make brain turn to mush so I forget everything,” It was deflection on Aerians part, but Virra would feel the knot of pain that twisted up inside of Aerian, it would be impossible for either of them to hide their emotions from the other now their bond already stronger than ever.

Virra looked to Aerian tilting her head at the sense of pain that lingered, lifting a hand to caress her cheek with a smirk, running a thumb over the plump bottom of Aerian’s lip. “I think, we both could use a distraction.” Suddenly Virra pushed Aerian back and she felt her feet lift from the ground, before Aerian knew it she was in Virra’s arms. “I think, I completely forgot that I haven’t carried my bride to be over the threshold.” She chuckled and walked to the door and through it, as her lips were on Aerian’s.

Aerian smiled before reacting to the kiss, before she broke the kiss looking to Virra for a moment “It’s about time!” She smirked as her emerald eyes reflected nothing but passion for Virra “You’re incredible you know that right, I do have a question and it’s going to sound seriously weird,”

Virra kicked the door closed behind her with a foot, while balancing with Aerian and walking with her to the bedroom. Dropping her on the bed, meticulously beginning to remover Aerian’s clothing, while Virra’s lips gave chase and offered playful nips at her lover’s ticklish spots. “Oh? Weird, hm? Well you better ask before I change my mind.”

Aerian squirmed each time Virra caught a ticklish spot, she could feel her body respond, “Considering everything we’ve been through, were you always a girl type girl or do you miss men in some way?”

She stopped her intentions on Aerian, instead standing to remove her clothing to press her naked body against Aerian’s. Fingertips caressing across her shoulders, down her collar bone from left to right. “I suppose there could have been a time I liked men, but that was stolen from me by the man that took my innocence.” She watched as her fingers graced the skin leading to Aerian’s breasts but instead pranced between the swells without touching. “Being surrounded by disgusting men, it really wasn’t a thought in my mind. How about you?”

Aerian caught Virras hand moving it to her breast slowly “I always had a thing for girls, at least as I started to develop like that, but when I got older, I mean even ignoring what Hareavor did, or others, my work occasionally had me need to do things, sleep with men for information or to piss off a wife, but sometimes it was enjoyable”

Virra nodded to her, but instead of cupping and massaging her lovers mound, she caressed the full shape with her fingers. Tracing small circles around the bud but never actually touching the surface directly. “Did you like sleeping with the men for jobs? I’ve always been curious of a threesome.”

“I liked that sometimes I needed to, to get a job done, it feels good, I have all the power in those occasions, maybe that’s why” Aerian squirmed against Virra now wrapping her legs around one of Virras and grinding her hips against her.

Virra lowered a hand to cup and smack Aerian’s behind, with a rub after. “I’ll make you forget every man you slept with.” She said with her mouth sinking to Aerian’s bud into her mouth with lustful vigor.

Aerian groaned deeply, still grinding her hip into Virras leg as she could feel the heat from Virra mouth on her nipple her whole body shuddered.

Virra guided Aerian to her back, lips still fixed to the bosom, nibbling gently with flicking the bud captured with her greedy feast. Rolling her thigh more firmly against Aerian’s sweet spot, a hand lowered to slither a finger to stimulate her pearl.

Aerian moaned, her whole body tensed against Virras touch, her whole body prickling with pleasure as Virra would find Aerian incredibly wet to her touch.

Virra grinned amidst the focus on Aerian’s succulent bosom, parting with a very gentle grab and pluck of her bud watching as the flesh juggled. With the added lubrication it was easy for her to glide and massage her pearl. Virra tilted her chin up. “Mmm, someone is excited…” She purred beside her ear.

“Admittedly I’ve been wet all day because someone has been threatening to fuck me all day” Aerian replied her words coming between gasps, as she moaned deeply, right before her whole body shuddered from the touch of her lover “And …” Aerian let the statement hold as the images in her head caused her body to grind into Virras hand hungry now for her release.

Virra positioned herself between Aerian’s legs now, her body keeping Aerian’s legs apart. Just as the fingers left her pearl to plunge three violently and drop into her silken folds to the knuckle, wriggling the digits. “And…?”

Aerian squealed in delight feeling Virra penetrate her so violently only pushed her deeper into the pleasure, as she clamped against her invading fingers she tried to clear her mind enough to answer “I … want … to …” Aerian squirmed awkwardly now “To … see …. you fucked” she breathed breathlessly now

At this point Virra began to pump her fingers like a tool with Aerian, yet she felt a little pressure at her back door as a pinky traced the sensitive entry. “You’re so dirty…” Virra whispered next to her ear but in the next instant, her lips laughed of the line with such force and stimulation it was only A cover for the plunge of her pinky into her back door.

Aerian growled as it stung just for a moment before pleasure returned just as quickly she ground down again into Virras hand, she could feel her cheeks flush in her cheeks as she whimpered “You put the idea there, nor did you say no, so …” she moaned as she felt a fresh wave of pleasure shuddered through her.

“For you, Firefly, I would do anything…” she panted beside her ear, before a free hand cupped her cheek. Taunting her with her lips but never kissing Aerian. Each attempt caused her to move her hands faster to bring her near a climax before slowing only to do such again and again. Virra was building her up to the moment of a limit drawn out release.

Aerian would feel it build only for Virra to snatch it away causing her to moan in frustration as she turned to look into Virras eyes there was a strange look of defiance combined with the desire before she managed to speak “Don’t do it because I want to, I need you to want it too, to explore every aspect of who we are in every and any way we can think of” she moaned deeply

Virra smirked to Aerian, only moving her hands faster with the wiggle of the digits to press every button Aerian had. That is when Aerian felt the subtle touch upon her pearl from Virra’s thumb. “I wouldn’t have it any other way…” She growled sensually and crushed her lips against Aerian’s, the heat alone was melting as the kiss stopped discussion and held the deep seeded passion, slick muscle urging Aerian to climax.

Aerians hands wound into the sheets as her back pushed up forcing her down into Virras hand, an attempt to hold back the wave which threatened to crash through her, as her thumb touched the tender bud her body spasmed violently, breaking the kiss to cry out in pleasure. Her whole body shuddered violently as she passed through one release right into another waiting just behind!

Virra seemed pleased by the release, a seductive expression on her face, though just before the other release rushed forth Virra’s hot mouth was suckling and lapping up the nectar. Placing intent suction upon the bud pearl, as the slick tool if her tongue violently penetrated her. Another finger joined her pinky, thrusting more quickly.

As Virra moved Aerian grabbed her hair pushing her against her face, a hunger that burned as she ground into Virra now her moans of pleasure growing with each moment. A third violent orgasm Aerian snapped back into the bed ercries now becoming screams as she twisted against Virra,the world around her dimming as she lay shuddering.

Virra wasn’t done, the fact that Aerian’s hand pushed against her head seemed to fuel her as it appeared the sheer taste of her lover want going to do there. Her tongue slithered deeper as she nibbled at the plump pearl amidst the suckling. She paused to drink her in and went again and again, pushing Aerian to a limit never brief sought with anyone. Virra wanted to please her and to the heavens. Everything seemed to blend into one motion, one act and it was hard to focus on just one. Out was clear Virra wanted her to beg to stop.

Aerian lost track somewhere between the fourth or fifth orgasm only that her body gave up to a quivering mass of flesh every touch from Virra now incredibly heightened as her body shuddered from one orgasm to the next, she wanted to pull away but hadn’t the strength to do so, her mind wanted more and more a hunger for her lover as her body again resisted “No …. more ….. please” Aerian begged softly barely above a whisper.

Virra grinned satisfied with her pleas, adjusting to lay at her side, only caressing her quivering flower with the lightest, loving touch. Though she whispered to Aerian, beside her ear. “From now on, I will only stop when your body gives and you beg for me to do so…” She kissed her neck gently.

“You’re mean” Aerian breathed softly “But I’m going to return the pleasure, after we sleep!” Aerian could feel Virra beside her a gentle comfort settling as exhaustion pushed her body further over the edge now.

[Ending A War] The Demon Underneath

There was something in the air that night as Hades stretched against the bed, the loud cracks as bones were pushed around internally, his skin aching in places long since closed from old wounds. He had remained quiet most of the day as the family had made preparations to repair Ascondias mind and then head to take back Elvera.

It didn’t make things easy as he continued to stretch and readjust himself, his mind was ever as sharp but the years had taken their toll, it was also new to him that in preparing for war he was no longer concerned with saving his own neck but that of his wife to be Jade. Something Hades was completely unprepared for.

The door opened and the familiar scent of cherry blossoms entered the room to announce the appearance of Jade. In her hands was a tray with a pot of tea and two cups. Turning she closed the door behind her, while nearing the bed and pausing. “You seem tense, my love. Care to share the weight upon your mind?”

“The truth?” He replied softly “I’m not used to being here, only usually have my own ass to worry about, and now even though I know you’re more than capable, I still don’t want anything to happen to you, honestly it’s taking a little getting used to,”

He sighed deeply even he knew how harsh that sounded, but he had been honest with her that wasn’t about to change, “I know we’ll get through things, but just feeling a little caught out, it’s the selfish side of me hitting panic mode,”

She turned setting the tray on the nightstand, as Jade calmly purred out tea. The exotic scent wafting to his senses and relaxing him. “As harsh as that sounds, I know you were only telling me. Stop thinking on it so much. Instead of thinking on worrying for me just focus on us doing so together.”

“I’m just getting whiny in my old age,” he smiled softly as he made his way to her to retrieve a cup from her “Honestly the sooner we can take back the realm, the sooner I can focus on more important things,” He watched her for a moment before placing a hand on her stomach “I lived through one war, never thought we’d have to do it again,”

Jade paused with the cup against her lips as his hand was set upon her stomach, then looked to him losing the tea to the tasty and took his hand in hers, away from her abdomen. “The war will be over in due time…you do wish a child? What if–I can’t?”

“Then we will have plenty of fun trying,” Hades smiled wickedly, “And I may just lock you up here in my room all the time, have my way with you relentlessly”

He kissed her forehead with a soft smile “I hope one day we can raise children together, I have never believed I cannot do something, and I don’t intend to start now, we will find a way Jade, I promise you that,”

A blush lifted to her cheeks, beautifully accenting her porcelain skin, lifting her hand to touch a dark shock of hair behind her ear. But then hid behind the cup while it was clear she was smiling by the corner of her lips. “I don’t mind the practice.”

“That’s lucky for me then,” Hades smiled softly as he took the cup from her hand placing down, now taking her hands to pull her gently to him his lips meeting hers gently, his hands gripping her hips as he pulled her tight against him with a low moan against the kiss.

Jade looked surprised by his take of the cup from her, looking down to his hands in hers them up to him. When he pulled her close, a smile was formed into the kiss that was reciprocated in kind. One hand slithered from his to curl at the hair of his neck to delve more deeply into the kiss with pushing fingertips against his skin. Her scent enveloped him with the floral of the cherry blossom that possessed his exotic love.

His hands slipped up her body to slowly undo her her kimono before pushing it to the floor. He slowly stepped back taking her hand before drawing her back to him his hands sliding back to her hips, one hand let go to unfasten his own pants easing them down before kicking them away. As the moved back he slid against her ass and with one motion lifted her to his waist sinking her down upon him.

Jade gasped to the peel of the kimono which was just a veil over her body, now standing before him, exposed were her beautiful curves upon such beautiful and smooth flesh. A small rush of breath left her lips to the pull close to him, as he worked on his pants, Jade also released him off his shirt.

The turn caught her by surprise, but in the lift and his tool sunk into her molten core, a cry of pleasure escaped her lips. Holding in that position, he felt the incredible heat and turned surround him, her body was like a drug. Addicting.

Hades held her there feeling the heat of her inner core surround him as he leant to kiss and nip at her neck for a moment before his hands helped raise her up and then let her slip back down upon him.

Jade held her hands in his shoulder to maintain the support, tilting her head back with a sung praise of his actions allowing him the oath of his lips upon her seductive skin. Her nails bit into his shoulder now, testing him. Perhaps pushing for his darkness to come forth.

Hades growled softly as he settled on the edge on the bed, now driving her down onto him before raising her hips and repeating the action, his eyes now looking into hers, a strange glimmer of something other than himself settled within

She met his gaze through half-lidded eyes weighed down with desire, Jade was in a daze and cried out as his hips clapped against her. Jade was clutching to him as her nails bit harder, while her body was throbbing against his.

It was sudden, as he shifted position dropping her to the bed before forcing her to the edge, as he lowered to his knees his mouth clamping down against her heated centre with a deep growl before hungrily licking and nipping against her swollen bud, his tongue driven up into her before returning to the assault of her bud. His hands planted firmly against her thighs keeping them spread wide apart.

Jade cried out in satisfaction while Hades turned into the hungry beast. The heat of her core was dripping with sweet nectar, such an ambrosial taste flooded his senses. His hands felt the tremble of her thighs as the kings threatened to close and her voice reached him to a depth never before. The feel of her bud was plump and thriving begged to be stimulated, as her fingers stove through his hair with that gentle scrape of her nails.

Hades continued his actions, suckling firmly against her bud, his nails curled biting into the tender flesh of her thighs as he growled hungry against her.

The more pressure he placed upon her thighs the more they quivered, though finally he had hit her sweet spot. He felt the pressure of her silken fold surround his slick tool and a scream of pleasure, as he was granted a rush of her juices. Her poor flower throbbing and brought to life with over stimulation, fighting to remain still while fingers left his hair to curl into the fabric of the bedding.

 

Hades drank her down hungrily, his reward from his lover. He didn’t slow his assault on her bud instead adjusting his grip on her thighs forcing her legs still further apart before letting his tongue tease down her wetness against her ass and then back to the rapid assault of her sensitive and now swollen bud.

She curled her fingers when more tightly against the sheets, the more speed he utilized he was gifted the risen sound of her voice. The grip kept the threatened closure of her legs at bay, but her felt her body tremble violently. A look up to her would reveal her porcelain cheeks kissed with the flush of passion, as her luscious lips delivered the song to his ears. As his slick tool brushed over her tender pucker a chortled gasp of surprise broke the deliverance of her moans granting him another flow of her juices, again and again.

Hades drank her down again before standing his hands now forcing her onto her front and then forcing her to raise her ass leaving her level his waist, a sharp slap against the tender flesh of her ass watching as it turned red. There was a dark edge to every action he took, each design to both punish and yet pleasure her.

“We can stop anytime you want,” He almost growled the worst as her struck her ass again, this time with much more force than before.

She flipped over onto her front causing the bed to groan at the transition, Jade looked back to him as her hips were guided to raise displaying each luscious half-moon. A gasp parted her lips to the first strike on her cheeks, causing each to jiggle from the force with the angry red mark glaring at Hades. Just as another was struck, forcing a small yelp from her lips. Yet he saw the trickle of her juices down her leg to the last violent smack, she began to writhe her hips beckoning him for more.

“No! Don’t stop…” Jade whimpered, as her plump bottom was red. “Let yourself lose. I’m yours, Master.”

Watching her juices dribble down her thigh made Hades harder still as he watched before his own mind caught up, his mind battling the need to take her and violate her anyway he saw fit, before remembering the woman he wanted to harm was the woman he wanted to spend his life with, this was why Hades had stayed away from intimacy for the most part, he wanted to break her and he knew she would let him, as he ran his hand down her spine before kissing her lower back.

Jade trembled under his gentle touch and gasped at the heart of his lips upon her skin. Testing on folded forearms and glances break to him over her shoulder, the desire in her eyes was startling. “Don’t hold back…I’m yours…” She whispered, almost as though pleading for him to release the side he was in conflict with.

“You know what happens if I do?” His voice was soft and yet dangerous in the way he made his statement “You know what happens right? You know what I need from this, what I trust only you to give me?” again he let his nails bit into the flesh this time of her ass as he cupped them tightly.

“I do.” She stated in a breathy tone, writhing her hips against his hands, the glance over her shoulder displayed the caught lower lip between her teeth.

As her words came, his conflict vanished, his eyes darkened as he watched her, there was something predatory in the way he moved as he struck her ass a third time. His fingers traced down her thighs among the juices that were now there, this time he didn’t hold back as again a hand came down striking her hard

She cried out as her body shook out of reflex to the violent strike, those delicious cheeks jiggling as a few strands of dark hair fell from the meticulous bun that had been fixed. It seemed as though her entire body jerked to the torrent that was released. But somehow Hades knew, Jade could handle it, though she appeared to be fragile it was the opposite.

Her cries was delicious to the darkness within now, as he slid his fingers into her just for a moment, slipping them deep into her before easing them back.

Slowly he raked his nails down her sides, enough force to break flesh in places as watched the blood slip down her skin, he smiled darkly. Another slap this time between her cheeks against her wetness.

Her body reacted immediately to the pleasure that derived from the plunge of his digits, her passage instantly pressed against the pressure. Effectively soaking his fingers with her juices. She trembled as the nails broke flesh, oozing with her deep red essence over the snowy flesh. He felt her body literally quiver with fear and anticipation, it was exhilarating.

His hands slapped into her hips hard, he could feel the flesh beneath burn in reply now. As he positioned himself before simply driving into her, he growled deeply as he did so, his hips slamming into hers.

She yelped to the smack of his hands at her hips, the rage of such violence seeped in heat against his palms. Though it was when he slammed into her flower, desecrating the passage without permission, Jade cried out and in reflex her body arched with more weight on her forearms. The blood from her sides began to drip to the sheets, while her hands curled tightly upon the fabric. But his invading member curved a slight as the force was not enough to breach post her pearly gates to the inner sanctum of her womb.

He growled as he eased back just a little before driving into her again, a third time as his grip on her hips drove her back against him before he released his hold now grabbing her hair and dragging her up from the bed and back to him, his free hand then reaching to knead and crush her breast, whilst holding her weight he let the hand in her hair transfer to her other breast now crushing and kneading them hard, as his hips urged her to move upon him.

The sound of their bodies was carnal and fed this deep sated beast rising in Hades. A gasp caught her as his hand reigned her in by means of her hair, pulling her up as though strings to a puppet. The swell of her bosom against his hand was intoxicating as he cruelly applied a hungry pressure with her buds scrapping his palm to state her own arousal. Compelled, her hips rolled back against him, but this wasn’t enough to breach the sanctuary. Her breathing and sounds were ragged but fuelled his further desire to control her.

As he tried to force up into her it only built his own frustration, the darkness wanting to tear her hidden gateway open as he growled now dropping her to the bed and forcing her to her back. He pushed his hand against her stomach hard before his hand moved to strike her breast.

He was thriving upon his need for this, as he struck her opposite breast, watching the red form over the delicate white flesh of her body, feeling her body react to each attack he brought against her.

The air escaped her in a rush to the abrupt turn onto her back, his member freed and raging in the magnificent pillar glistening proudly. It wasn’t long before he plunged in again. Using her body as a sheath for his manly sword, but still it wasn’t enough to breach her pearly gates. A small yelp caught when he began to abuse her bosom, the red was angry against her swollen breast before fading to be brought yet again to the red. Her body reacted by clenching tightly around the girth that stretched her flower, each time.

As he drove into her again he let his hands knead and grope her breasts for a moment before his eyes set on hers, he leant over her slowly before his hand again wound into her head bending her head back for a moment before letting go, his hand now tracing the exposed flesh of her neck.

Slowly his hand closed in on her throat s he watched her reaction as dangerous as he was intent in his acions now.

She was lost in the ecstasy. While her bosom jiggled against the force of his hips plowing into her, she met his gaze with her own. Unable to hold it for long before closing the lids it was almost as though she knew. Turning her neck to the side in an allowance of more terrain for his touch. But once his hand wrapped around her throat, Jade opened her eyes, a hand lifting to curl around his wrist but not to pull away only to dig her fingers into his flesh. Now her hips rocking and buckling against his, as though fighting the violence with violence, pleasure with pleasure. Her sounds were attacked by his hold, but the flush on her cheeks darkened and eyed began to roll into the back of her skull with a glisten of drool escaping the corner of her mouth. It was a strangely erotic and beautiful expression while he felt her body grip him with such force and a rush of her juices came, again and again.

His grip tightened as each strangled noise made a way through, deliberate with the intent to remove her air supply, at least until he felt her release hit allowing her to breath and drink in the air for a moment before snapping his grip back in place again, between his grip on her throat and his hips slamming into her there was nothing else but a vicious need that he wanted her.

The dark need translated into a twisted rage that was released each time he drove into her, his eyes drinking in every ripple over her body as each thrust would crash into her sending waves over her body, her beasts bouncing with the force until he leant to bite one hard while maintaining the air restricted grip on her throat.

She continued to knead urgently upon his wrist, even as her world grew fuzzy to the point of release in which she would gasp. Her sounds in that moment incredible until stole but his grip, he felt her skin throb beneath his hand, intoxicating and drunken. Jade was his, in every manner of the word, suddenly her eyes widened at the bite to her bosom mouth peeking to the silence of a scream. But the incredible tightness increased each time pain was administered, by bite or more pressure to her delicate neck. Again and again he felt those juices added to to violent sound. Finally she had enough and lifted her legs to press her thighs against his chest. This granted him a depth denied, without restraint his monster raided her sanctuary passed the pearl gates, abusing the very back with violent battering. Now her nails dug into his wrist with viciousness.

Now a look at her would reveal the fiery aura of the kitsune that surrounded her in the blade. It was stunning and beautiful with her brown eyes replaced with yellow and fangs appearing from the peel of her lips. Such an exotic woman, yet a very rare creature. She was his.

His grip on her throat released as he grabbed her legs, bending her as far as she would go before returning to his violent rhythm each thrust with the intent of driving as hard and deep as he could, a deep guttural growl followed each vicious thrust.

A sudden twisted growl as he forced himself hard into him, his body now feeling the depth with which he was penetrating her was given to the need to fill her, his own juices now driven deep into her waiting sanctuary, nails biting into the flesh of her thighs as he still had her bent so hard, his eyes glazed with the lust of that moment now.

Jade was incredibly flexible, possibly double jointed, as it appeared to be nearly in half while others would break. She bolted up when his grip retreated and parted her lips to sink her fangs into his shoulder, causing blood to drop some the wound that most assuredly would leave a bruise. Every time he thrust harder and deeper, the stiff battering ram stretched the far back wall as the rage of his relentless pumping. Her nails clawed at his back while tearing into his flesh, slickening the surface. She was lost and the fiery aura began to increase, Jade panted sings moaned into his captured flesh, as his seed filled her to the point of it oozing at the sides. But to the rush of her seemingly endless flow of nectar.

As the last of his seed was emptied within her, he collapsed down on top on her. His full weight pinning her beneath him as he lay silent, every part of him spent in that moment. After a few moments he slid to her side his arm pulling her into him, kissing the side of her face just for a moment.

Jade gasped as Hades full weight was upon her though she remained still. The fiery aura fading, though when he rolled over Hades was met with sheets wet with blood. But Jade was trembling softly from the powerful event that unfolded from the climax. The wound on her sides were not bleeding, closed and just the remnants on her skin. Yet upon her delicate neck was a faint bruise of his hands that remained.

As Hades own haze cleared he sat drawing her up with him, the conflict that usually resided in his eyes now all but gone as he watched her for a moment. As he surveyed the bed and the blood he couldn’t help but smile.

“That makes you one of only two people to open that side and live to tell the tale,” His words were soft “And I am the luckiest man in the realm to be with you, though I think next time I will have to take my time with you,”

She looked to him through tired eyes, though as he said the word two or caused her to look down the smile fading with a pained expression in her brown eyes. Perhaps he shouldn’t have mentioned it because Jade knew of one other.

The bed appeared as though there was a struggle with the crumpled sheets and large blood stains.

Hades placed his fingers on her chin to lift her head gently “Not who you’re thinking, the only person who’s gone head to head against me like that is my brother,” his words were soft, yet sincere.

“I don’t make a habbit of it or I tend to leave to a trail of bodies, you only need read the history books to see that, but what you just gave me Jade, I needed to unload and clear my head, I have done for a long time, no one in any realm could have given me that”

She lifted her chin by his guidance, meeting his gaze and a clarity was within those almond slanted eyes. “I’m glad that I could offer you just that much. It means much to me to hear that from you. I admit, I’m a little jealous of Ascondia. She is beautiful and a Queen, I can never match up to that. I have never loved anyone as much as I have you and I don’t want to lose that.”

“Our dear Queen dropped me the second my brother showed up, it was relationship based on convenience no more no less, just sex” He shrugged softly “I love you, yet I pray you don’t bolt for the hills the more I show of myself”

Jade looked to him with a secretive smile, as that bruise glared at him from her neck. “I haven’t yet. Though I’m thinking perhaps I need a tight necklace to conceal the bruising. Perhaps a collar?” This was to speak to the darker side. “I would like more time in a shower aspect.”

“You would look quite delicious in a collar” There was an edge to his voice that both teasing and yet dark “But then you look very sexy with those bruises, and I think when we are done with this war I’m going to take you away for a very long, and very fun time”

A blush lifted to her cheeks at his words with fingers touching the bruising, attempting to contain the smile such rose. “I wouldn’t complain. Though this war can not be finished soon enough. I want to bare your child.”

“Mmm indeed something I intend to work on, but I think if my brother or his wife saw those bruises, I may end up in a cell instead of alone in the woods with you,” He ran a hand over the bruise with a soft smile “So we should try to conceal that from them, the less questions we raise the better for our future children”

“The more we conceal the more suspicious they will be. I am proud of it, as you should be too. They put you in a cell, you won’t be alone. Each of them need to accept this part of you, I do.” She offered him a simple but her words were steady with purpose. Jade lifted a hand to caress his cheek with a subtle draw of her nails against the side if his neck.

He let his hand close in on her throat once more before kissing her “See just one more reason why I love you, ”

Her expression remained composed but he felt the flicker of the kitsune in her, almost as though it spoke to him in the grasp of her throat. The pulse not only throbbing against his palm but her lips against his. “I love you too.” These two were each a side of a coin, but accepted the duality.
