The hell hounds were growling, a growl that was coming directly from their throat. I find it interesting that hellhounds are so big and hideous, but their human forms are so beautiful. The downside is that all hellhounds are male, and they repopulate with other males. Weird isn’t it. The hellhounds slowly walked in front of us, and Nora tugged on my arm pulling me foreword. As I turned around I saw my father who looked more demon than human. His skin was red, and his eyes were bright yellow accompanied by two huge horns on top of his head. He walked past me looking me directly in the eyes, “Go now.” His voice echoing through my brain, and as much as I wanted to stop I just kept walking.
So many things were running through my brain, so many things that I could tell nor explain. I had to end this, but I knew Nora couldn’t be in it. I stared at her beautiful face as she took me into the dinning hall. I knew that if she was in this she would die, and thats something I didn’t want. She sat me down in a chair, and went to close the door. I looked around to see the room empty. Where was Castor and Pollux? “Where are the twins?” She made her way back to me, “They’re at my fathers. He wanted to keep them for a night.” She put her hands on the sides of my face and kissed me. A kiss that was genuine and pure with nothing but love. As she broke the kiss her hand went across my face, slapping me harder than I’ve ever been before. I moved my jaw bringing my hand up to cup it as pain shot through it. “What was that for” I asked calmly? Tears began to stream down her face, “I was so worried, so scared baby.” Her voice was shaking, and slowly blue flames started to spark up on her body.
The flames were beautiful, a beautiful color that brought back sweet memories. I opened my arms to her, and she slowly came and sat in my lap. I wrapped my arms around her squeezing softly, “Baby I’m sorry for making you worried and for making you scared.” The flames slowly began to die down as I talked. “You know that I love you, and if I leave without telling you-” “You make me hurt. What if you get hurt like before” she screamed the words at me! I stared into those dark pools of emotion she had on her. She was more human than she was demon. “I do that to keep you safe. To keep our family safe. I do it for us” I said as I pushed her hair behind her ears. “It’s not just you, it’s we baby. We made vows on out wedding day” her words struck me hard hitting a nerve deep inside of me.
“Nora, I don’t want you to get hurt. Both of us can’t die” I screamed the words without thinking! She pulled away from me tears were running down her face, “We won’t die! We have each other, and together we’re more powerful than anyone.” I hated to see her cry, but she had to understand. If I die, the twins would need their mother. I lifted myself out of the chair slowly trying to prevent any pain from striking me. As I stood straight up I walked over to and kiss her. Kissed her deep and passionately. She was so beautiful so pure, but yet so stubborn. I pulled back letting my forehead touch hers, “Nora, I love you so much.” “I love you too Iron” she replied sweetly. I wanted to protect her, and I would. “Lets go home.” She smiled and moved against my body. I used all the strength I had left to let my wings burst out of my back wrapping them around us. Her head was laid against my shoulder, and I tightened my grip around her closing my eyes. Home sweet Home.
