The Gemstone of Ominium - Denial

He had to see her again. He didn’t know why. He was a grown man now, no longer the lonely child he’d been in the past. And yet the breathtaking need remained the same, and every time he recalled that night the pain of separation was still as strong, still as raw has it had been. He knew it made no sense and yet he couldn’t deny it. No matter what others might say he had to meet her. And, deep inside his heart, he childishly hoped she’d be a little bit like him, that she’d be able to truly see and understand him. For what bound could be stronger than blood?

She dreamed of death every night and of freedom every morning. From her window she saw herself leave that place, run across the forest and escape the suffocating fate that awaited her. And yet she knew that the chains that bound her were needed and deserved. For she knew all too well the dark horror of who she truly was. And so she accepted her fate.

Part 2 - I’ll Wait for You

Kahor hugged his naked body against hers and did her best to hold her tears as she caressed the soft, black hair covering her bare chest. She laid there, watching him sleep, committing every detail of his relaxed face to her memory, wishing they could stay in that room forever, forgotten by the world outside. And yet she knew better than that.

Finally she gathered all her courage and strength and put on a smile on her lips as she woke him up.

His eyes were on her as soon as they opened and then he moved lazily to kiss her, making her laugh at the dreamy way he looked at her.

“I’m not going …” he whispered, immediately murdering her smile.

“Kai …”

“You can’t just tell me to go like nothing has happened …”

“We’ve already talked about this.”

“I want to stay with you …”

She averted her gaze to hide her tears from him and frowned angrily at her own weakness.

“Please, don’t make this any harder than it is … We both know that, in the end, you’ll do what must be done. And I love you for that! And last night … last night didn’t exist to tie you down. I just ask you don’t forget me … like I know I won’t forget you.” she told him and he kissed her face, and her neck, and her ear, making her sigh.

“I’ll never forget you … Not in a hundred years,” she hugged him and kissed him, and smiled when he pulled back to look down at her. “Just promise me you won’t be here when they attack.”

“I promise.” He smiled gently, looking relieved, and kissed the tip of her nose.

“And wait for me. I’ll be back!”

“And what else is there for me? I know you’ll finish your mission in no time at all. I’ll wait for you in Leips,” he nodded, agreeing, and she smiled at him. “And now go. It’s late, already. They’re probably looking for you by now.”

Kai obeyed getting dressed as she put on her night gown, and then he kissed her one last time.

“Take care and no crazy stunts while I’m gone!”

“When we meet again I’ll be able to walk normally again, you’ll see.”

He caressed her hair hesitating for a bit longer, and then stood up, walking out the door without looking back.
