MeisjeKellyOdette -   362d ago

It was a Wednesday.

It was a dark and dreary Wednesday night which took the breath away of a woman who knew darkness like the back of her hand.
Eyes peered out through a round edged window that was earlier covered by the deepest red velvet curtain, while the sounds of horses hooves and wheels gliding along the road, ran rampant in her ears, while leading them to an abode that would harbor herself and a few others for a small amount of time.

[i "I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars. The darker the night, the brighter the stars, it's as close as to the day as we might get...."] the woman spoke as she continued to pay attention on the outside landscape.

It was a dark and dreary night indeed, but Odette could see plain as the sun shone.

[i "The more I think about it, the more I feel I have made a grave mistake.."]
[b "The choice you have made, is the right choice for our colony. Our wide family need this equality between the two houses. Yours and his. Romanian, he may be, an enemy he is, but we need to make amends."]
[i "It still does not feel right.."] Odette spoke once more, finally turning away from the window and stared upon her Advisor. Her dear friend, the very first she had turned in her 402 years of walking this earth.

[b "He has agreed to meet with you without malice and that is a start. The arrangement of your marriage will be spoken to later, but in the mean time, amends must be made."]
[i "I have not needed a man for, four centuries. This is ... all...overwhelming."]
[b "Of course it is, but do not think about it. It will all be fine, trust it and me..."] he spoke before looking down and opened a human skin bound book, reading delicate information before speaking out once again [b "His second in command will meet us in Vienna, halfway and he will take us the remainder of the way. We should be in Vienna in, 2 hours..."]

Odette nodded and turned back to the window, pushing the curtain out off to the side and remained seated to endure those 2 hours and ever minute that went by, she became more and more anxious.

Her life and her Covern were at stake. The last thing she needed was a war, so this meeting had to go smoothly.
Best behavior to match her very breath taking appearance.

A Queen of 5'6 stature with curves in all the right places which were shown off by the corseted attire she tended to wear.
Long delicate brown hair that was often in bouncy curls when let down, but no one saw, due to the strands always being pinned up. The length of her hair always remained a mystery as no one had ever seen it unpinned.
Eyes, emerald.
Lips, pouty and dusty rose pink.
Skin, alabaster and perfect.

Not a single imperfection, which was a given for someone who was dead...well un-dead as civilians tended to speak of them.

A long 2 hours later, they had arrived.

The coach came to a complete stop in Vienna, under the moonlight.

Due the length of the trip, as it would come close to morning, they would need to find solace for the day before heading out once again, but for now, Odette was soon to be greeted by  member of a Covern that was nothing but the enemy.

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Night had finally fallen and Vincent was finally able to walk freely. He'd been in his bed chambers [i awake] for the longest time now. He'd been waiting for the sun to fully set so he could leave the chambers without his skin burning. There was a knock on the door, and without him answering the door opened. [b "It's almost time to go and meet Odette"] his best friend, and boss said. Vincent rolled his eyes lightly. [#D1B419 "Do you really want me to go and meet the bitch?"] he asked. A small smirk passed over Dominick's lips.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [b "This is why you and I get along so well. Yes, you have to go and meet my [i wife] half way. I'm not too happy about it, because I haven't needed a woman in my life for the longest time. I don't trust anyone else but you to do this"] Dominick said clapping Vincent on the shoulder. The male rolled his eyes once more. [#D1B419 "I really don't want to do this, and I wish you didn't trust me so much to do so"] he admitted. Dominick let out a low chuckle just then.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [b "If you didn't want me trusting you this much, you shouldn't have shown me how trustworthy you are"] he said with a grin. Vincent knew Dominick was right. He had shown the male over and over how trustworthy he was. He didn't want too, but he had. He blew out a small huff of breath as he looked towards the window. He knew he had to get a move on, and soon. He didn't want to be late meeting the new bride of Dominick. He stood from the chair he had been sitting in, and went to the closet.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [b "You do know, you could have been the one getting married instead of me"] the other offered up. Vincent looked towards the other and rolled his eyes. [#D1B419 "You know I'm not the marrying type"] he said back. He wasn't into dating, or settling down. At least not yet. It's been over five hundred years since he had been changed, and he hadn't found the perfect one quite yet. He had his whole life still. Then again he was still hung up on Miranda. The woman he had loved so long ago.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Thinking about the woman made the male wish he had ended his life the night Dominick turned him. He shook his head as he looked at his life long friend. [#D1B419 "I'll go and collect her for you"] he said. Dominick smiled his thanks, and soon Vincent was pulling on his cloak and heading out of his bed chambers, and towards the stables. He stopped long enough to look up towards the night sky, and realized it was cloudy out. Maybe they would get a storm finally. It's been a couple of weeks since their last one.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He opened the stable doors and his white mare huffed when she heard him coming. [#D1B419 "Are you ready to go my love?"] he asked rubbing her muzzle. The horse let out another huff and kicked her foot, letting him know that yes she was ready to go. He went and got her saddle, and tack. Along with whatever else he would need. Soon she was ready to go, and he slid himself into the saddle and was on his way. The wind flew past him as he let Star run as fast as she wanted.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Soon he was at the meeting spot, and he spotted Odette and her escort arriving as well. He nodded towards them both. [#D1B419 "Just follow me, and you'll be led to your chambers as well. By the time we get back to the castle it will be right before dawn"] he said. He didn't say anything more as he turned Star around, and headed back the way he had come. He didn't even bother talking to the woman. At least not right away. When they finally arrived to the Castle, there was Colton waiting for them outside.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [b "I know it's been a long trip for you my lady. Your bed chambers are ready for you, and you will be seeing Dominick tonight"] he said as he led her inside. Vincent on the other hand had stolen a quick glance at the woman, and something seemed to spark within him. She was beautiful. He wondered if he could keep her up a while longer, but knew better than that. He hurried and put the horses into the stable, and then made his way back into the castle, and back to his bed chambers. Thinking about the beautiful woman the whole entire time. Wishing he had taken the time to speak to her, and regretting the fact he didn't.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   358d ago

The road and the blasted trip from her home too, perhaps her new found one was taking longer than she had wanted.
Sure, Odette knew the length and the miles she would have to travel, but why did this seem to be drawn out?
It was funny on how the mind worked; the shortest trip could make itself out to be the longest.
Wasn't it strange that trips would take forever to get to the destination but too travel home, it seemed to of flew by?

All Odette said in her mind while those eyes stared out the window were - [i kill me, kill me....kill me.] What a pity it was that she was already dead.
What a pity.

[i Whoaaa...] - a single, dislocated voice from the outside mumbled as the horses and the carriage slowed down before coming to a complete stop.
Odette raised a single eyebrow and shifted from her seat, opened the door and stepped out.

A man appeared in her presence.
A single man who looked cold and calculated.
A man who refused to look at her but simple opened his mouth and spoke words that were to be followed.

They were to begin their way once again and soon reach the Castle way before dawn, he would escort them but all Odette could do was simply sigh and get back into the carriage.

[b "This trip....never again..."] she muttered to her dearest friend who spoke nothing, clearly getting the idea of her frustration way before they arrived at the Castle.

The structure was truly glorious.
Old and ever so gothic, with statues of gargoyles and the most furious looking demon that sat upon the pyres.
Getting herself together, Odette soon exited from the carriage and was soon welcomed by several people.

The very handsome and cold, calculated man was no where to be seen which only seemed to entice her mind more than she would of liked.

Odette did not see him leer for a fraction of a moment before leaving to put his very beloved Horse away.

[i "I know it's been a long trip for you my lady. Your bed chambers are ready for you, and you will be seeing Dominick tonight"]

[b "I will not be seeing his Lord, tonight. I am tired. I have had a long ...long, bumpy and uncomfortable trip and I would like to get some rest. I'm sure he would understand, and If he didn't....well....I'm sure you can figure it out..] Odette spoke to silence.

It was not long until the Queen was escorted inside the warmly lit Castle and was shown her Chambers, up flights of stairs and bendy hallways. Eyes of paintings, seemed too of watched Odette ever so carefully as she was allowed in her room to rest, just as she had requested.

No Dominick on that night.

Perhaps no Dominick on the other nights to come, but who was she kidding?

Standing by the end of her bed, Odette's emerald green eyes looked around her Chambers while her hands slowly undid the clasp of her cloak and removed it from that body that people spoke of.
With the cloak on the bed, Odette sighed and began to wader through the room, touching the polished wooden furniture, the cushioned padding of the couch before turning and glancing at the bed.

A bed that she would sleep in.
A bed that would entertain her soon to be partner in her forever life, Dominick.

Or would it be?

Odette's mind trailed to the man who was rude enough not to speak to Royalty.
StolenRelics-deмon   352d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 While Vincent was putting his horse back into the stable for the day, he could hear what was being said. A small smirk passed over the man's lips. Did she really think they meant she would be seeing him right now. [b "My Lady, you won't be seeing him this very moment. He, himself had a lot of things to do anyway. When I say tonight, it means when the sun sets tonight"] the mane said. Vincent couldn't help but chuckle a little bit. God she thought was entitled. If Dominick wanted to see her, he would.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Dominick wasn't one to take orders, and that woman better learn her place and soon. Dominick wasn't one to be pushed over the edge either. When Vincent was finally finished he walked out of the stables and looked up towards the castle. It was a beautiful sight to see in the moonlight. His trip had been long, and he was getting a bit tired himself. Even though he was a demon, he could easily walk among the daylight, but he wouldn't do that to Dominick. Thinking about the male, he knew he had to go and report to him.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He made his way into the castle and bowed his head towards the other's there. He then went to find his good friend. He knocked on the door and stepped inside. [b "Did you collect her alright?"] he asked. [#D1B419 "That I did. She's already a pain in the ass though. Entitled bitch"] he muttered. Dominick looked up and laughed. [b "Really? That bad?"] he asked. Vincent plopped down into one of the chairs, and propped his feet up onto the chair next to him. He reached up and ran his hands through his hair.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Yes. When Godric said she would be meeting you tonight, she pretty much told him straight up no"] he said. He could tell it was getting to Dominick. [b "She's pretty much a guest in my home right now, and if I had needed to see her, she would have been brought here first, and not led to her bed chambers"] he growled out. Vincent knew that was a touchy subject just then. He could tell his friend was rethinking all of this. He hoped the man would back out of it. He didn't want to piss the other off though.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Yes I know that. She acts so stuck up, it's really getting under my skin. I don't know how you are going to having her as a wife"] he admitted. Dominick looked towards the other and shook his head. [b "I'm starting to rethink that honestly"] he admitted. That's what Vincent wanted to hear. He wanted to hear that his best friend wouldn't go through with it, but he knew better than that. His mind did wander to Odette though. She was beautiful, even though she was a bitch.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He could see himself getting to know her, maybe in more ways than one. He didn't know where that thought had come from, and he shook his head to clear it. [#D1B419 "It's almost dawn though, it's time you and I head to bed"] he said as he stood. Dominick nodded lightly as he gathered up his things and put them all away. The two then walked the dark halls to Dominick's chambers first. Vincent bowed and then left the other alone. He then made his way to his own bed chambers. He walked passed Odette's bed chambers and paused.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He stood there looking at the closed door, wondering what she would do if he just walked in. He thought about it, but fought the urge to do so. He then turned and made his way down the hall once more. He slipped into his own chambers, shut the door tightly behind him, changed out of his clothes, made sure the curtain's were drawn tightly shut, and slipped into bed. He slid his hand behind his head, looked up at the posts above him and laid there, trying to get Odette off his mind.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   351d ago

Dawn approached.
It had to be one of the very things in life that she had missed the most; the warmth of the sun, when everything shone bright and the heat would penetrate her skin and make her cold blood warm.
Never again would Odette see the light of day along with the clear beauty of the world she lived in.

Candles that flickered were her only source of light and comfort. The homely ambiance cast a orange glow around her room that her Majesty was to stay in, until she left and it was not what she expected; then again, anything was better than sharing Dominick's bed at that point.

With the curtains drawn shut securely, her life still in complete darkness, Odette raised herself up from the cushioned stool that sat before a table.
Long brown strands of hair hung down in loose waves, free from pins and decorative pieces, face free of the paint that made her feel somewhat alive while upon her smooth, alabaster skin rested a white silk night dress that dragged along the floor as she walked. Straps thing like spaghetti upon her shoulder, easy enough to push down or break.

This time of day herself and many creatures like her would be asleep, dreaming of the night, however in this case, Odette found herself unable to sleep. Perhaps it was the anxiety of being in a place so unfamiliar. Perhaps it was her longing hatred of Dominick ......or maybe, it was she could not remove a certain man from her mind.

A man she wanted to watch wander the room as she bathed, who would stroke her hair while the two laid in bed.

Stepping across the room, Odette approached her door and opened it up just a crack to ensure it was all dark, locked up with no sign of the sun she wanted to know.
As the coast was clear, the Queen bit her lower lip and stepped out into the hallway and began to wander up the way.

It was a beautiful thing how the body worked, eyes adjusted to the night pretty quick but for Odette, it was constant. She viewed the night just as great as one would in the light.
Barefoot, it was not long until she approached a room that was lit by a fire. Away from Dominick room but short enough travel of her own and a so called man.
A large room filled with books, two couches of shiny leather by a rectangular table, while in a corner rested a grand piano with a candelabra resting on the surface.

Giving off a smile, Odette looked around before stepping inside and took a seat upon the velvet stood, dainty toes meeting with the pedals while her fingers gently touched the ivory black and white keys.

For the first time in the hours she had been here, Odette found herself immersed in joy.
Pushing down on the keys, the piano came to life and sung out tunes. Different tones and when placed together, Odette created hauntingly beautiful music.

A slow rhythm to begin with
Slow and steady as Odette felt the piano and listened to it sing, knowing what it could do before finally going faster with her fingers.
Up and down on the keys, fast...faster then slower; all the while her eyes closed completely entranced with the music.

Body moving back and forth on the stool slowly.
Long hair slipping from her shoulder to her back while her toes and feet played with the pedals.

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 As the male laid there listening to the sounds outside turning from night music, to morning doves cooing. He didn't realize he had laid awake the whole night. Then again dawn had only been a couple of hours away. That's when he heard a sound that wasn't like any other. He was used to the sounds of the castle, but the sound of a piano playing wasn't one of them. The male slipped out of bed, and pulled on a white shirt. He made sure he had his slacks on as well, and slipped out of the room.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Bare feet hitting the floor softly as he moved through the dark halls. He wasn't like Dominick and Odette. He could freely walk in the sun, but he chose not too. His people had called him insane for doing that, but he didn't care. He had something else on his mind just then. He wanted to know who was playing that beautiful melody. It sounded so haunting, and lonely, and yet it was really beautiful as well. When he came to stand outside the door of the parlor he paused to listen. The sound was coming from here.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He slowly opened the door and the beauty of the room still took him by surprise. Dominick had the placed decked out so to speak. The male had more than one woman choose how they wanted the room to look, and they had done it justice. He slowly moved into the room, letting the door fall gently shut. He made sure he hadn't been heard or seen, and slowly melted into the shadows. He then spotted Odette sitting at the piano, her body moving in time to the melody she was playing, her hair falling down her back.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The male bit the inside of his cheek as he stood there watching her. God she was breathtaking, and he wanted nothing more than to make her his. What was he thinking? She was promised to his oldest friend, and he wasn't about to ruin that. No matter how badly he wanted too. He slowly walked up to the side of the piano, as if coming from the shadows itself. [#D1B419 "I see you found the piano"] he said softly. He hoped he had startled her, but had a feeling he hadn't.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "This was the place you are going to meet Dominick this evening"] he said lightly. He looked her up and down, his eyes lingering a little bit longer where they shouldn't. He slowly moved his eyes to her's and smirked lightly. He wouldn't mind slipping back into her bed chambers with her. He was getting away with his thoughts, and that wasn't a good thing. He was loyal to Dominick, but he hadn't been with a woman for years. Something about Odette was drawing him in as well. He sighed as he took a seat next to her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I want to apologize for being rude picking you up. My name is Vincent Prince, Dominick's right hand man. Welcome to the castle, I hope you enjoy your stay here"] he said in a softer tone. He didn't know what else to really do or say. He felt like he was already over stepping a line by sitting right next to her, but he didn't care. He then remembered the real reason as to why he was here. He cocked his head towards the woman beside him, and took a better look at her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "That melody you were playing, is it something you created, or was it something you heard years ago? Because it was beautiful, but it sounded really lonely"] he said softly. He was afraid if he tried to speak above a whisper someone would hear them, but who would? Everyone was in their own chambers, and they were the only two out and about when they shouldn't be.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   341d ago

It perhaps was the only time in her life when Odette felt human again; sitting by a piano, feeling the smoothness of ivory elephant keys and letting the music sink in to her very bones.
The piano keys were black and white, but they sounded like a million colors in her mind.

Many years had passed since that fateful night that turned her into who she was and playing a tune was the only thing she could remember from her past life.

As for the piano, the faster her fingers flew over it, the more she became marveled. Odette struck the keys with aplomb and ran from one end of the board to the other without a stop which only caused a greater tune that caught the ears of a curious man, a man she did think about that very dawn filled morning.

It seemed that the piano had removed him from her mind, for a wonderful, filled moment.
Slowing down, gently Odette's fingers tapped on the keys one at a time, slower and a lot more gentle to where she only started to tap - opening her eyes as she could sense a presence close; a single different feeling than she felt when she first entered the empty room. It had since come inhabited by not one person, but now two.

Spine straightened, Odette looked in front while still playing before looking back down, hearing a voice that she sighed over.
The fantasy of no longer thinking about this man was over.

[i "I see you found the piano"]
[b "It is quite an impressive instrument to not have found...."] Odette muttered softly, fingers still tapping at the keys [b "Especially in a room such as this.."]
[i "This was the place you are going to meet Dominick this evening"]
[b "Lucky me."]

Removing both hands from the board, Odette leaned back and turned her head - watching ever so intently at the man who took whatever breath she had left away, allowing him to look at her in a way that roused her curiosity before actually letting the male take a seat.

[b "I won't be staying long.."]

His name was Vincent Prince.
A trusted, loyal second hand man to a King she was to marry in order to form a equal and neutral alliance.
How complicated this was going to be.

Odette remained quiet.

Eyes of emerald green kept watched and refused to look away as Vincent remained seated beside the body of a Queen. There was no need for her to open her mouth and speak who she was as it was clear Vincent already knew who her name, who she was and a very clear view on her demeanor and yet ..... when he spoke on the music, Odette felt compelled to reply.

[i "That melody you were playing, is it something you created, or was it something you heard years ago? Because it was beautiful, but it sounded really lonely"]

Odette gave off a smile and broke the gaze from Vincent only to look back down at her hands that moved up once again and rested upon the keys.

[b "Bach. A very...very romantic and passionate composer. There is just something about that peice that makes me feel human again, its a memory. It's all I have left..."] she spoke softly, tapping the keys before clicking her tongue, clearing her throat and lent back to snap out of her musical gaze.

It was past her bed time and she was being a sticky nose and being rude with playing with another man's musical equipment.

[b "I should probably head to bed, try to get sleep. And do not worry about being how you were. If I was in your shoes, id be just as defensive and protective.."]

He was beautiful.
Ever so irritatingly handsome, even more so in a dimly lit room, together....alone, when really they shouldn't be.
Odettes voice was softer than usual.

For anyone to know they were awake would cause gossip.
It was as if it was a whisper as she turned her head while seated - looking at Vincent.
StolenRelics-deмon   336d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Listening to the woman speak made his heart ache. Something about this woman was dangerous, and yet he was drawn in. He shouldn't be, because she was promised to another man. He wanted nothing more than to feel her skin against his, to feel those lips where only eyes of a loved one should be, and those fingers. He wondered how they would feel against his own skin. He was kind of jealous of the piano so to speak. He didn't understand it, but deep down he didn't want to ruin something good. Dominick would murder him if he found out.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 As she spoke of the man that had created the music she had been playing, and how she said it was the only memory she had left, he shook his head lightly. [#D1B419 "I don't believe that for one moment. Seeing as how you are still here, yes it a horrible way, but you must have some other memories stored away"] he said softly. His heart ached for those like her and Dominick. They had their lives ripped out from under them, and now they have to live in darkness for the rest of their lives.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He honestly didn't know what it would feel like doing that. He enjoyed the sun too much. He had given up the sun for Dominick, and he would do it all over again as well for Odette. He didn't understand where those thoughts, and feelings were coming from. He never dreamed of looking at another man's woman in his life. Even if they weren't married yet, he still felt like he was doing something wrong. Was he having human emotions all of a sudden? Something he didn't think would ever happen in his whole life.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He shook his head as he slowly came back to what was happening in front of him. He cocked his head to the side as he watched her with silent eyes. [#D1B419 "Honestly, you and I aren't that much different. The only difference is, you are promised to another man"] he said in a soft voice. He wanted nothing more than to fully let his guard down around her. Something about this woman drew that out in him. He was scared that he would slip up, and say something he shouldn't have said.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "So let me ask you this. Why are you here? Do you really want to marry Dominick?"] he asked. He had a feeling that question wasn't something he should have asked, but he was curious to know what was on her mind. He thought about reaching out and touching her hand, but kept his hands in his lap. Soon enough he finally stood and started to pace back and forth. He knew he was doing something wrong, and he just hoped that if word got back to Dominick, he would listen to everything he had to say.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I'm sorry if I said something wrong. I know I shouldn't even be alone with you right now. I'll take you back to your bed chambers now though"] he said as he stopped pacing around. He then held his arm out towards her, and waited for her to stand. At least he wasn't breaking any other rules. At least ones he didn't know of. He fell silent, and waited for her to say something, or tell him she would be find going alone. At least he was trying to be a gentleman.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   335d ago

He was ever so beautiful.

The way he spoke, his voice just as much as he smelled simply took her breath away and Odette could not stand it.
What was it about this man that she hard knew that made her feel the way she did?
What was the way she felt?

In all pure honesty, never had Odette had the inkling of the feeling that took hold of her body, she simply not could make wind of it as it got deeper and deeper within the bones.

Questions had been asked by Vincent that partially made Odette bite her lower lip on thinking on how to answer.
There were only a few memories she could remember of her past human life.
Playing the piano, the smell of her mother and the pain of turning from a sun loving woman, to a creature of darkness.

No matter how hard Odette had tried, she could never fully remember anything else, it was heart breaking.
Perhaps herself and Vincent were not all that different.

Vincent's voice became softer as Odette looked down and continued to play around with the ivory keys that would sing, however the time came where she stopped upon hearing a question that took her by surprise.
Turning her head, Odette's beautiful emerald green eyes stared upon the most intoxicating man and remained silent for a few moments.
Was she to lie?
Was she to speak the truth?

Odette was promised to another man but she did want to marry him?

[b "No."]

The response was quick, blunt but it was the truth.

[b "I will not lie. No, I do not wish to marry Dominick, however I am left with no choice.."] she spoke once again, watching as Vincent moved from the seat they were both planted upon and he began to pace the room.

Did he feel the longing and the ache like she did?

[b "I need to do this for my coven, my people back in Paris. To keep things calm and create unity between us. I do not love Dominick, I want love in my life but I do not want my people to suffer, they are more important..."]

[i "I'm sorry if I said something wrong. I know I shouldn't even be alone with you right now. I'll take you back to your bed chambers now though"]
[b "You haven't done anything wrong and Dominick will not know of this. I will not speak of it..."]

Odette's eyes looked at Vincent's arm outstretched, awaiting for her to take hold and to stand up and she did - slowly.
Hand out, she gently touched Vincent before slipping her arm around his own - locking them together, shifting away and from the piano's seat to now leaning somewhat against it.

Still in silence, the two of them.
Odette's breathing got a little faster knowing they were the only two in the room, surrounded by lovely warm light by flame's that danced.

[b "Do you ache, as much as I do for you?..."] she asked, breaking the silence, soft and breathless.

She was out of line to ask such a thing, but was overwhelming.
Arm still interlocked with his own, Odette remained by the piano, staring at Vincent.

They were the only ones up so it seemed.
No one would know of their conversation.

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The demon didn't know how to reply to the woman. She was intruding his thoughts more now that she was touching him. Was this some sort of power she held? Something she did as a human? Trapped men whenever she wanted them? When he heard her voice asking if he ached for her as much as she did for him, he didn't know how to fully reply. Did he dare even speak what was in his mind. He turned his dark gaze to the woman beside him. The animal inside was slowly slipping out. He sighed lightly before speaking.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I want to say no, but then I would be the one to lie to you, and I'm not that type of man. I might be a demon, and a cold blooded killer, but I'm an honest one. Yes I do ache for you, I want to touch you in ways that only a lover should touch you. I've never wanted something this bad in all of my life, but you, you bring that side of me out. I know you are promised to someone else, and that's what hurts the most right now."]]]

But right now, I can feel your body screaming for me to touch it, to kiss you, to do anything and everything to you... Tell me I'm wrong"] her breathed.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He hadn't felt something like this in ages, and it was kind of nice. It was strange, and all around forbidden, but he wanted to tread that line. He wanted to have what was Dominick's. He wanted to tell Dominick everything, he wanted Odette as his own. He slid his arm from her grasp, and turned away from her for a moment. His body was screaming for her touch again, to feel her fingers on his skin. [#D1B419 "Damn you.."] he breathed out. He then spun around on his heels, grabbed the woman around the waist and lifted her up.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He place her on the piano's top, being careful not to have her hit the keys and make a sound. His eyes changed to coal black, and he wasn't himself. He was doing something forbidden, but he didn't care. He crushed his lips against her's, stepping between her legs, drawing her even closer to himself. He placed his hands on either side of her body, and kissed her deeply. A low growl could be heard deep in his throat. He pulled back, and took quite a few steps back, nearly tripping over a chair.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I have to go"] he breathed out. He didn't even bother taking her back to her chambers. He had done the worst thing possible. He had kissed a taken woman pretty much. Something he vowed to never do. He reached up and touched his lips lightly as he could still feel her lips against his own. He shook his head, vanished into the shadows, leaving the woman to her own accord.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   316d ago

Perhaps, Odette was a little blunt and forward when she spoke about how she felt deep inside.

The ache for a intimate connection just got worse and worse as the  seconds of her eternal life carried on and it also did not help that Vincent was so close...

As the two stood by the the most grandest and oldest of Piano's made, Odette stared at the demon who made her feel something extraordinary that she had not felt in centuries.

Who knew it was still alive inside.

[i Yes I do ache for you, I want to touch you in ways that only a lover should touch you. I've never wanted something this bad in all of my life, but you, you bring that side of me out. I know you are promised to someone else, and that's what hurts the most right now."]

Odette was not going crazy, he too felt something, a crazed ache for pure longing and yet, Vincent spoke on that she was to marry someone else.
How right he was.

Feelings and emotions had to be pushed aside and they both had to ignore that horrid ache, but ho could they when it was so intense?
The temptation was overwhelming and here Vincent was, wanting to know if he was at all wrong by guessing how the woman felt.

Odette breathed heavily, biting her lower lip as her eyes continued to stare upon the most enchanting and forbidden man she had ever known.
He was not wrong.
He let go of her grasp and turned around which only made Odette want to reach out and grab Vincent tight.

[b "You are not wrong. You could never be wrong about this. Never..."] she replied back softly and it was within a split moment that her body was lifted up by strong hands and rested her upon the smooth, glossy surface of the piano.

Long legs spread apart, enough space for Vincent to slip in between and to share a kiss.
The fire was ignited.

Hands that belonged to him placed gently upon her waist while Odette ran fingers through his hair with a tilt of her head, kissing harder and ever so passionate that both of their tongues danced with each other's own.
Sweet sighs of intimate relief filled the room and Odette did not want it to end; but like all good things....they had too.

Vincent stopped and stepped back, while the female remained seated upon the musical piece, lips swollen from the heated share, chest heaving from the excitement and adrenaline.

[i 'I have to go..']
[b "What? .. No Vincent, please... stay..."] Odette spoke as she watched the Demon slip back into the shadows and left.

[b "With me...."] she continued to say in a whisper only to look down bringing both hands to her face only to again, feel lonesome.

A few moments she took to gather herself before slipping off the piano and breathed in deep.
If she had a heart that beated, it would now be somewhat broken.

Quietly, the soon to be Bride exited the wonderful room and began her travels back down the dark hallway, to a room, cold and desolate.
Entering with a hard push of the door, Odette closed and made her way to the bed and began to undress to nudity underneath and found herself soon under the single sheet upon the mattress.

It was not a thrill.

Odette could not pinpoint the feeling. Was it a mistake?
Was it right?
Was it pure anger for what he did?

Head upon the pillow, she turned her head and looked to the space beside upon the bed and sighed.

[b "Damn it..."]
StolenRelics-deмon   316d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The kiss they had shared meant something to the male. He didn't know what it was, or why it was getting to him as much as it was. He wanted nothing more than to go to her, and just do so much more. He could still feel her lips against his, and he loved the feeling he had. He wished that things were different, but he knew better than that. They wouldn't be any different. She was promised to Dominick, and he couldn't do anything about it. He sighed lightly as he laid there in silence.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 If he had stayed, would she be in bed with him right now? Would they be tangled up together? Would he be able to feel her cold skin? Her lips? Her body? Everything? There was so much running around in his mind, that he didn't know if he could really think straight anymore. Odette was entering his mind more and more. Her beautiful face. The feel of her slender waist under his hands. The feeling of her fingers in his hair. It was driving him insane. He let out a growl, wishing he had stayed with her after all.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He sighed as he rolled onto his side and stood. He walked over to the window, and drew the boards back. He stood there watching as the sun rose. It was such a beautiful sight, he wished he could live that way everyday. Live among the day, instead of the night. He had made a promise to Dominick though. He would always be a creature of the night as long as Dominick was still around. Then another thought hit him, what if Dominick wasn't in the picture? Would he still have met Odette?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Would he be having these impure thoughts about another man's woman? Would he want to go and slip into bed with her? He shook his head as he shut the boards once more. He then drew his shirt up and over his head, and walked over to the mirror on the table. He sat down and looked at the scars littering his chest, and stomach. He was a monster after all. Each scar told a different story. He sat there looking at himself. Would Odette turn him away if she saw the scars? Or would she ask about them?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Not even Dominick knew about all of the scars that littered his skin. He trusted the man, but not like he should with something like that. He sighed lightly as he finally shoved all of those thoughts aside. He then slipped back over to his bed. Slipped out of his pants, and tossed them aside. He slid in between the sheets, and laid back against the pillows. He put one hand behind his head, and the other rested on his stomach. He would kill to have anyone in his bed right now. Hell he would kill to have Odette in his bed.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 [i 'You need to stop thinking about her.. You can't have her.. She's not your's.. You over stepped a line back there.. Yet you want to do it over and over again..']] he thought to himself. It was true too. He wanted to touch her, kiss her, and do so much more to her. He couldn't though. He would have to fight those feelings for the rest of his life. He didn't want too, but what other choice did he have? He groaned lightly as he finally let sleep come over him. He had a long night ahead of him in the next hours ahead.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   315d ago

The kiss was what she was waiting for practically her whole un-dead life.
Throughout her many years on the god forsaken planet, Odette did have her fair share of romps and romances with the opposite gender; however nothing compared to the fire and electricity she felt within those short moments.

She felt something.
She knew Vincent felt something just as strong and before being able to figure it out what it was and to lead into the temptation, he cut it short.

Just as well.

What the two had done was wrong as Vincent was a loyal friend, like a Brother while Odette was there to conduct business.
To get married to Dominick and no longer divide their hatred but to unite in equality.

It took another hour before Odette managed to close her eyes and remain asleep while outside the sun shone bright and everything was alive and blooming; unlike her love.

No dreams.
No thoughts.
Odette just simply slept for several hours, hours well needed before waking up with the sound of Willie Wagtail birds that sang under the moonlight.
Opening her eyes, she stared upon the ceiling before noticing the candles in her room fully lit as someone had entered while she slumbered and fired up the wax.
Her dress and jewels set up for her to wear along with a pair of shoes high on the heel.

[+red "Good evening, Maa'm.."] a soft voice came from the door as it opened up with a gorgeous looking Maid stepping while grasping a bowl filled with rose water and a sponge.
Odette sighed as she sat up, heart desperately wanting it to be Vincent, but with the actions with last night, he would be the last person to step into her room.

Odette was bathed in fragrant rose water that left her skin sweet smelling, a scent that lingered in the air as she walked.
Her long hair sleeked back, out of her face, covering her ears while cascading down her spine.
Face made up natural with make up but with a bold red lip while the gown upon her body was simply but ever so comfortable.
A blood red silk dress, similar to a night dress with spaghetti straps and a long cut down the front and the back.
Her bare back showing visibly while the front, showed her sternum and the sides of the mounds of her chest.
A ruby and emerald choker clinging around her neck while on her head, rested a crown like tiara matching the jewels of her necklace.

A splash of perfume oil, it was not long until Odette left her chambers and traveled down the long hallway back to the room that harbored that piano, the same one she shared that wonderful moment with the man she longed for...
StolenRelics-ғallen   303d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Night had finally fallen, and Dominick was getting ready to meet the woman he would be marrying. In a way he was kind of excited about it, but at the same time he was kind of nervous. He hadn't seen the woman the night before. Vincent was the one who had gathered her and brought her to the castle. Thinking about the other made Dominick wonder where he was. He looked towards one of the maids in the room. [#ADD8E6 "Have you seen Vincent tonight?"] he asked. The maid shook her head. [b "I have not sire.."] she spoke out.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The tattooed man nodded lightly as he watched her. [#ADD8E6 "There's nothing to fear child, I'm not going to harm you"] he said in a softer tone. The maid couldn't help but nod lightly. [b "I know that sire, still nervous working under you"] she admitted. The male knew it was kind of nerve wracking to work for someone like him, and he understood where she was coming from. [b "If you'll excuse me I'll see what's keeping Vincent"] she said as she ducked out of the room. The male let her go.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He finished dressing in his best suit and tie. He might as well look the part. He wanted to impress Odette in a way. Even though there was bad blood between both of their clans. They were getting married to make sure they could unite each of their clans, and show their people that even though they didn't like one another, they could make things work. He finished dressing and the maid came back into the room. [b "Vincent said he had to go hunting tonight sire.."] she said softly. The male nodded towards the young woman before him.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "Thank you charlotte. That was kind of you to let me know. You are excused for the night"] he told her. She hurried off and the male knew she was thankful for that. He finished adding some small touches here and there, and then he found the white roses and picked them up. He hoped the woman would enjoy the flowers. It was a sort of peace offering so to speak. He then walked out of his chambers and down the halls, his shoes making a small clicking noise as he did.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Soon he was in the main room, and he spotted the woman. She looked breath taking. He walked over towards her and offered her the roses. [#ADD8E6 "Good evening Odette. I didn't know what flowers to offer, so I do offer the white roses. You are welcome to do with them as you wish"] he said as he handed them to her. He looked her up and down, and he licked his lower lip lightly. She looked amazing, and he wondered what she would look like without the clothing as well. He shoved those thoughts away for now.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "My name is Dominick, and I welcome you into my home. Please make yourself at home, and we can talk about the plans for the wedding, and how we are going to unite the clans together as one"] he said as he pulled out a chair and sat down. He placed one ankle along his thigh as he watched the beautiful creature with silent, dark eyes.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   302d ago

The feeling of not being in her own environment was quite clear.
Walking on eggshells was how Odette felt and now, with her little intimate kiss with Vincent, the eggshells felt like glass and she needed to be even more careful where she tread.

The mind was such a powerful thing.
The brain was a very busy and intelligent organ and yet, when it was compared to the heart...the heart won ten folds over.
Odette knew she had to follow her mind, listen to her brain and adhere to the reason why she was here; to unite their families and become one.
Her ill beating heart had no more say, would not force her into temptation again, no.... matter.... what.

If only it was that easy.

The musical room from a previous rendezvous was where Odette would be meeting the man of the house, the Leader of the Romanian coven, the King.

Entering the room, Odette walked as if she was floating on air and breathed out slowly half waiting to see if Vincent was around.

Of course he would be, he followed Dominick like a lost little lamb, however on this occasion, he was no where to be seen. 
Silly woman, she should have known.

A man who ran away from a pleasant act was bound to not attend himself around the guilty party.

[+purple "Good evening Odette. I didn't know what flowers to offer, so I do offer the white roses. You are welcome to do with them as you wish"]

Dominick was quite a striking man.
Eyes a piercing blue and a body so very masculine with rather big hands which were enough for a solid handful of her body.
Giving off a slight smile, Odette's eyes looked at the roses and outstretched her arms to where she soon cradled the roses as if they were a baby.
Gentle and carefully only to lean down and took in the scent.

[+b "All My Loving roses. One of favorites. Thank you, they are lovely.."] she spoke softly, giving them another lingered smell before passing them off to one of her female consorts to place them in water, in a her room.

A Wedding.

Such a joyous occasion to join two people together in love and matrimony but heading the words of a wedding, it made Odette feel somewhat ill.
It was her duty yes, to do this...but there was no love.
What was an eternal life without love?
What was her obsession with love?

[b "The wedding...yes..."] again she spoke now with a fake smile, taking a seat next to Dominick while it was pulled out open for her to take.
Behind on the cushioned seat, it was pushed in lose to the table, while a glass of warm human red was served.
Freshly warm.
Freshly taken and offered and Odette took it willingly.

A polite lingering sip of the blood, Odette placed the glass back down and continued about the wedding.

[b "Things do need to be arranged, sorted out closely and to make sure all can attend without squabbles."]

Another sip of her drink, Odette started to become nervous and hot.
Where was Vincent?

[b "My Lord, do you feel a wedding is totally the answer? We could always sign a treaty, a contract to unite our families, one not to break.  Truth be told, a wedding...the thought of it makes me......well, ive...never been married before."]

Odette was not going to lie, the way Dominick sat, did make her flush in the face.
What was with the Romanians and their beauty?
StolenRelics-ғallen   302d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The sound of the woman's voice talking about the roses, and how they were her favorite made the male feel slightly better. [#ADD8E6 "Well I'm glad you enjoy them. You are more than welcome to have more, since there's a bunch of rose bushes out back with different colored ones as well"] the male said. He watched as she sat down next to him, and he felt like the air between them was awkward and he didn't like it. As she started to speak of the wedding, and signing some sort of treaty that couldn't be broken, he didn't like that idea.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "To be honest with you, it wouldn't work that way. Because my people do follow the words I tell them, there are still people out there that want to do harm to you, and your coven as well. I have heard some of those rumors, and I have made sure nothing bad happens to you. Believe me, I have thought about it myself, but if one of them breaks it, then there will be war for the both of us, and I don't think you would want that either"] he said with a small sigh.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He could tell she was slightly uncomfortable, and he didn't like that one bit. [#ADD8E6 "The wedding doesn't have to happen right away. You are welcome to stay here, or go back to your own home as well to think about it. There's just no going around it. I'm tired of the fighting between both covens, and I would like to put a stop to it. If you need more time to think about it, I will grant it, just not for years on end. I will put a limit on it"]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "I would say four months should be long enough. You are welcome to travel from here and home, and back. I'll make sure my right hand man Vincent accompanies you the whole time as well. If you do decide to go back home, he will have to go with you to keep an eye on you, to make sure you aren't trying to screw myself over. I will warn you, I'm not the type of man to cross at all"] he said in a dangerous voice. God she was beautiful. Her lips looked amazing, and he wanted to kiss them more than anything.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "I do have one request for you though. I wish you to share my bed with me before you decide to leave. It can be on your time, and once you share a bed with me, is when I will let you leave freely. If you deny that simple request, then you will have to stay here while you make your choice"] he said with that same tone of voice. He placed his hands on his thighs as he watched her for her reaction. It wasn't much, they were somewhat simple requests.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "If you have any requests yourself, you are more than welcome to voice them, because I want all of this to work out for the both of us"] he said in a softer tone. He leaned back in his chair, and took the glass of blood in front of him, and he took a sip. It was fresh, and warm just the way he liked it. He wouldn't drink it any other way. He fell silent, letting Odette voice whatever she had on her mind, and hopefully they would be able to make a little bit of headway.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   302d ago

A rose did not answer its enemies with words, but with beauty.
Perhaps that was the right saying for Odette as she was not known for her words of hatred but more for her undying beauty.

Bushes of Roses were outside in the garden, and Odette could not wait to take a stroll under the moonlight to view them all.
All the colors.
All the sizes.
All of those wonderful smells that reminded her of her Paris.
Knowing of it now, she would do just that in the evening while she had free time to herself, well...whenever she had time to immerse herself in the maze of roses and take her time.

Sitting by the solid structured table of deep mahogany with a finish of gloss varnish, Odette remained seated and well poised as she kept eyes on Dominick; listening and latching onto ever single word that spilled from her very own lips.
Words she did not like to hear but refused to say anything in objection.

The thing however she did enjoy hearing was that the wedding did not have to happen right away.
There was a time limit, but the time to wait was reasonable enough and she got to go home if she wanted too.
One thing, Vincent had to accompany.

If everything went smoothly last night, Odette would of been jumping out of the seems, however in this instance, she dreaded that. How could she look at him?
The male practically refused her, however with the option of going home she would put up and deal with anything.

[b "You make such a choice. If I choose to go home, Vincent will be okay to come along. I suppose I cannot deny that request as you are allowing me to travel home.."]

Then came the ultimatum that made Odette's blood boil.
There it was.
When the devil offers you a rose, its petals are laced with poison.

[b "Really?..."]

Eyebrow raised, Odette gave off a soft laugh and faced the blood in the goblet before taking it in hand and took another long, lingering sip.
It was such a fucked up ultimatum but yet her heart yearned to go home even more so.

The pair sat in silence.

A few solid minutes went by until Odette, clicked her tongue and nodded, facing Dominick once again.

[b "The wedding will be pushed back a reasonable time limit. I will travel back to Paris, enjoy my last few months there while Vincent spies on me and my people for you....I wish to leave for Paris the day after tomorrow. If you wish me to be in your bed tomorrow night, then so be it..."]

The words were venom.

There was that hinting sick feeling on what if she actually enjoyed it?
Whatever it would be, Odette was homesick and she desperately wanted to be back in the arms of her home.

Vincent by her side, even if he was there to spy and keep away.

[b "Deal?..."]
StolenRelics-ғallen   302d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The vampire lord knew he was treading on something he shouldn't be treading on. He watched the woman sitting with him. He saw a small change in her, and he could understand what he was doing to her. As long as he had her in his bed, that's all that mattered. He listened to her speaking of the deal, and he leaned back and placed his hands onto his stomach and laced his fingers together. When she asked if they had a deal, he was silent for a moment longer thinking it over. He had hoped it would have been sooner.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "You do have a deal my dear Odette. I will make sure as soon as I see Vincent to let him know he would be joining you. As for sleeping in my bed, there's a couple of rules and I myself don't even break them. The sheets are made of the best silk in the world, and I don't want it to be ruined. So the moment you join me in my chambers, you must not be clothed. The satin along the skin feels amazing. That's the only rule I have for that"] he said softly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He had more than one woman in his bed, with the same sheets over the years. At one point he had to get new ones because they had gotten ruined by a fire. Since then he won't let outside clothes, or dirty bodies tough the sheets. [#ADD8E6 "There is one more thing as well. I would love to have you bathe with me as well. It could be either before you slip into the sheets, or on the night you leave when we rise. Whatever you choose to do my darling."]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "I promise you, you will not be disappointed with what I am requesting of you"] he said in a smaller tone. He watched her with ice blue eyes, licking his lower lip slowly. A part of him wanted to grab her, pull her against him, and take her to bed right then and there. He wasn't about to do that to her though. He was a gentleman after all. He nodded to one of the maids standing nearby, and she brought over some papers and placed them onto the table before them. There was a long night ahead of planning.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "I was hoping you would have stayed a bit longer before deciding to leave.

We have all night to get this finished, and when before the sun rises, you and I will turn in for the day. Sound good?"] he asked her. He reached for one of the pens.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He started tapping it against the table top as he waited for her to speak once more. He loved the sound of her voice, and watching her speak was enough to drive him insane as well. He pulled onto of the many papers in front of him, and started to doodle on it while he waited to hear what ideas she had, and what she wanted out of her wedding. He would then add his own ideas, after she was finished with her own.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   294d ago

Everything in the world was about s-x except s-x. S-x was about power and Dominick was showing true dominance the moment he spoke about the need of her in his bed.
One of the conditions of her being able to return to her lovely Paris.
It was sexual blackmail and truth be told, she had no idea on how to handle the situation at all but deep down, Odette did infact want to stay in Romania to test the waters and get used to her new home...and Vincent; however with their not successful romp on the piano, what was the point in staying?

Odette again kept fingers upon the goblet and held the neck with her digits, bringing the cup to her pouty mouth over...and over only to drink the sweet necter of blood. Emerald eyes continued to stare upon Dominick who was just has handsome as the other.
He oozed regality.
He oozed s-x.
He was a very confident and very much attractive.

Odette , like any other woman enjoyed a man's touch but with that, she was French wad lusted after love.
Would she find it with Dominick?

Giving off a smile, she laughed a little, keeping the goblet close.
"There are rules?..." she spoke softly with a raised eyebrow.
Yes, there rules. One important fact on that the sheets of his bed were silk and she needed to be naked before crawling onto them and him.
That, she understood. 
Silk was expensive and exquisite and Odette took this rule with a nod.

"That sounds reasonable enough. Something you and I can agree on.."

Then came the request that almost made her spit out the blood that was in her mouth.
Bathe him?
Did she hear him right?

Oh Lord, where was Vincent to save her from this?

Odette closed her eyes and placed the goblet back onto the table and seemed to scream on the inside.
Was she a Queen or Dominicks slave?

Why did she feel trapped?

"Perhaps it should be you who is bathing me, My Lord. However if it is what you desire.." 

Odette looked at Dominick as paper and pens approached them both as the two began to plan their upcoming nuptials when Odette returns from Montmartre.

Plans? From the top of her head?

"Roses of course, blood red in color. Perhaps some in white."] she spoke as she slowly got up from the seat and began to wander around the room but only to pass Dominick and gently touched his shoulder as she sauntered past. [b "Blood mixed with brandy-wine, just to get that little..."] Odette breathed in with a smile, close of her eyes for a single second [b "that little buzz...."]
Odette continued around the room, leaving her scent in the air with every step she took, heels clicking at the floor, train of her dress following close behind.
[b "Dinner to be, suckling pig with a wide spread of picking to choose and Hors d'Oeuvres to start off with. A classical band in the corner, while in the other - chaise lounge for people to lay upon and fuck, if they wish to do so. I am french, My Lord, we are all about the intimacy and public viewings..."]

Standing regal at the end of the table, Odette remained poised as she looked at Dominick who continued to remain seated.

[b "Do you have any grand ideas for our wedding or should you just leave it with me?..."]

I was already planning on giving you a night to remember, and that was one of the plans as well"] he said with a small, deep laugh. He was kind of surprised to see her reacting the way she had. That's when she stood and touched his shoulder.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 At the small touch of her fingers, something inside of him lit up. He wanted more of that touch. He sat there watching her every move. As she spoke about the plans she had for the wedding he nodded lightly. He himself didn't like to do it publicly, but he would do anything for the woman in front of him. When she finished speaking he cocked his head to the side, and folded his arms over his chest. Did he have ideas? At one point in time he did. He wanted it to be romantic.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "Hearing all of your ideas is grand. I will make sure all of them happen. As for the public watching everyone sleeping together, that's something I personally could do without. I would rather do that behind closed doors, and with the person I am bound too. No one else should see that kind of thing, but if it's something that you enjoy partaking in, then I suppose I will do as you please. This will be your home as well"] he breathed out. He was trying to rack his brain for any sort of ideas for the wedding.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "Some of the ideas I had was to have doves being released. It'll be done at night, but we can have whatever lights we need. That night will be the most romantic night. The flowers sound wonderful, the food sounds amazing, there will be some of foods from my land as well. As for everything else, I will leave it in your hands"] he said with a small nod of his head. It wasn't like he didn't want to put in his two cents, when he did. He just wanted her to know he would bend over backwards for her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "I want this night to be special for you. A bride's wedding day needs to be something special, and something to remember as well. I want that for you. I want you to be happy here"] he said as he stood and walked towards her. He reached out and touched her hand lightly, before he drew her hand to his lips and kissed the back of it. He might seem like a heartless bastard, but in reality he was a gentleman, and that'll never change. He was raised that way, and even being dead it never changed.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "Let's leave the rest of the planning be for the night. I want you in my bed"] he said in a low growl. He didn't wait for the woman to answer before he stooped down and picked her up. He then carried her out of the grand room, and made his way though the halls to his chambers. Once he stepped inside he kicked the door closed behind him. He then placed her back onto her feet. He looked down into her eyes, and cupped her face in his hands.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "I've wanted to do this since the moment I first laid eyes on you"] he breathed out. He then lowered his head down to her's, and brushed his lips against her lightly. The kiss sparked something inside of him, but he wasn't about to rush her either. They had all night to explore one another, and he hoped she would let her guard down at least a little bit, and let him explore her the way he wanted.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   281d ago

Bathe with him.
It had seemed that she, in all the thoughts in her mind and her ache for home she did mis-hear Dominicks spoken word on the two of them bathing.
It was an odd request but it seemed innocent enough; so she smiled at the words.
Just the two of them sharing a moment in warm water while embracing.

It seemed harmless.

Standing by the edge of the table, Odette held out her hands and began to speak on what she would like for the reception of the wedding.
It was to be grand.
It was to be intimate.
It was to be sensual.

Listening to Domincks words, Odette turned her head and looked at the King only to give off another smile before correcting him.

"It seems both of us have had a case of misunderstanding." she spoke, turning her body where she faced her soon to be Husband.
"Back in Montmartre, there is a certain house..where only a select few can enter and veiw what happens inside. They are of our kind, feasting on the festivities of s*x intimacies. Our kind are engaging in these acts with human beings who are willing. It is strange but you cannot look away. It is engaging; however at the end of it all they are fed on...."

Odette moved closer to Dominick, standing by the table with those peircing eyes on his very own.

"We would not be engaging will be purely a show for our guests. If our guests wish to be involved so be it. Our gift to them for attending..."

All Dominick wanted was for Odette to be happy in her new home.
Oh, how she wanted to be happy but how could she be happy when then man who made her breathe for the first time in 361 years haunted her thoughts by running away.

A kiss upon the back of her hand, Odette remained silent and listened to Dominick and watched intently as he removed himself from the chair and captivated her body on his arms.
He held her up like a brand new Bride and simply could not of left the Grand room fast enough until they were both in his Chambers, feet now firmly planted on the ground by his bed.

He wanted her the first glance.
Odette mustered a smile. 

She needed to forget Vincent and their little pathetic kiss.

"You wanted me? Come and get me....My Lord..." she spoke softly before welcoming a kiss that was surprisingly enjoyable.
Left hand reached up and gently caressed Dominicks face as Odette tilted her head to the side and kissed a little harder.
Welcoming her sweet tasting tongue into the Kings mouth before moving the single hand only to remove the dress that hung from her body.

The silk slipped from skin, leaving nothing on but the heeled shoes and the jewels around her neck.

Bare bodied.

Pulling back slowly, Odette took a step back for the male to take it all in.
The nudity.
The softness.

"I welcome you..."
StolenRelics-ғallen   268d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The male was mistaken after all. There was misunderstanding on both of their parts, and he was glad she was willing to explain what she meant. He nodded lightly at the mention of it. It was different, and it was something he could easily get behind. As long as he wouldn't be partaking, that's all that mattered to him. He was a one woman type of person anyway. Before he could say more, he was sweeping her off her feet, and carrying her through the halls and to his room. It's been ages since he's been alone with a woman.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Odette on the one hand was breathtaking, and if he had been alive, he would have been breathless but he wasn't. They were both undead, and they both didn't need air to survive. They needed blood, and that's all that made him survive in the first place. He was glad she didn't push him away when he kissed her. He was kind of surprised when she kissed him back. Soon he felt her tongue mingling with his own, and he let out a low growl in the back of his throat. She was doing things to him.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Things he hadn't felt in ages. It was a strange feeling, but it was a wonderful feeling as well. When she pulled back, he watched her with silent eyes as she slipped the gown off of her shoulders and to the floor. When she stood before him, fully nude he couldn't help but look her up and down. God did she look amazing, even with nearly nothing on. [#ADD8E6 "You my Queen, are breath taking, I'm surprised you haven't been snatched up a long time ago"] he breathed out. He meant it too.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He was pretty damn lucky to partake in such a beauty. He walked over to a high backed chair and brought it over for her to sit. When she was seated, he got down onto his knees, and slowly started to pull off her heels one at a time. He leaned forward and placed gentle kisses on her calf, as he looked up towards her. [#ADD8E6 "I don't know what you are doing to me, and I personally am enjoying the feelings you are stirring up inside of me. I do hope you will stop me if I'm overstepping a line"] he said softly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He finished pulling her heels off, and set them aside. He then stood and walked around the chair, and placed his hands on her shoulders. Her skin felt amazing under his fingertips. He found the clasp of her necklace, and unhooked it. He then took it over to the bedside table and set it down. He then turned and looked back towards her. He then slowly started to undress himself, and then went back to her side. He leaned down and tilted her head back a bit. He then closed the gap once more.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Their lips touched, and he wanted to melt. He wanted to fade away, forget the world and keep her all to himself. He knew that it wouldn't happen, but a man could dream. He pulled away and took her hand in his, and led her to the bathroom. He left the door open, and started the water. He made sure it was at the perfect tempture, and then added in bubbles, along with the flower petals he kept in a jar. He then placed them on top of the bubbles as the tub filled with hot water.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He turned around and faced her once more, watching her with silent eyes. [#ADD8E6 "Do you have any rules or anything you wish for me to follow?"] he asked her. He was doing everything he could to make her feel comfortable. He did tell her the rules of sleeping in his bed, and he was curious as to if she had any as well. He didn't want to sound like a demanding asshole, and he hoped he wasn't coming off that way. He fell silent as he looked over his shoulder watching the water rising little by little.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   221d ago

There seem to have been a mistake across the board. Both of them misunderstood, which was quite relatable considering they did not know to have anything in common with one another; it was their mission to find common ground if they were to go ahead with marriage.

Odette was still hesitant about it all, her mind could barely stop thinking about the man who was not her betrothed, the one who kissed her in such a way she could not ignore but she owed it to Dominick to at least try to salvage anything they had.

She had kissed him back. Returning the romantic gesture in a deepened state as her tongue slid against his own while caressing the fangs that would knick the muscle in an instant if both were not careful, however his growl sent shivers down her spine that almost caused blood to seep; it was a strange feeling for her and she was sure it was the same for him.

[i "You my Queen, are breath taking, I'm surprised you haven't been snatched up a long time ago"]
[b "It was my choice not to be but that doesn't mean I didn't have any offers..."] Odette whispered once the kiss had broken and shortly found herself sitting upon a chair that was carved with the most exquisite mahogany wood varnished in deep brown with a cushion so comfortable in velvet.

For a Queen to bow to a King was quite common, however a surprise came to her seconds later with Dominick taking a knee right before her very eyes, allowing his hands to take a leg and removed shoes from her dainty feet one at a time before planting sweet kisses upon her calf.
A eyebrow raised.
This was not like a King to do these sort of things and while she questioned this in her mind it was all soon answered.
[i "I don't know what you are doing to me, and I personally am enjoying the feelings you are stirring up inside of me. I do hope you will stop me if I'm overstepping a line"]
[b "You are not but for a King to take a knee before a Queen, I have to say is not exactly what I expected..never the less, I do quite enjoy this picture.."]

Smiles streamed both of their faces and before she knew it, the delicate and priceless jewellery were removed from her skin and placed in a safe compartment.
Dominick raised onto his feet, gave Odette another kiss upon her pouty lips and soon undressed himself bare for his soon to be wife.

Dominick was an Adonis.
Chiseled body that one could grate cheese, such a body of musculature while his lower half made the breathless Queen gasp somewhat. He was ...big..

The bathroom adjacent to the bedroom seemed to be larger than the room before it. Door left open, Odette followed Dominick willingly with no hesitation.

The bath was circular.
Warm water cascaded in from a swan brass like faucet tap and bubbles began to form while rose petals created such a romantic scene.

Seemed like Dominick was pulling out all the right moves.
[i "Do you have any rules or anything you wish for me to follow?"]


What about the Rules? Did she even have any?

[b "You must let me roam free around the castle and the grounds. I am not a caged bird. I like to be free. If you allow me as such I will stay around the compound and my limits."] she spoke softly, keeping her eyes upon Dom as the water continued to make noise from behind her very body. [b "No women are to dress you or bathe you. Loyalty once we are married, is a must.."]

She was sounded like a rightful hypocrite. What did she just do the night before?
[b "Kids. I would like at least one. Having said that, knowing I can not conceive one of our own...we should look into avenues to change one ...or steal. Not right now, of course."]

Stepping back from the male, Odette turned around in the very bare she was when she was born and slowly stepped into the circular bathtub and slowly sunk down, letting her body become covered with petals and bubbles, eyes gazing towards Dominick where she slowly lifted up a hand and motioned him to come with a single finger.

[b "S*x is fairgame, whatever you want.."]
StolenRelics-ғallen   218d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Dominick wasn't the kind of man to cage someone, unless they rightfully deserved it. He nodded lightly. [#ADD8E6 "You are more than welcome to wander the grounds as you please. They are yours as well. The grounds are huge, all the way to the heart of the forest behind this very castle, is all mine. The grounds are beautiful, especially in the winter time. The snow that falls here is beautiful, and silent. The grounds look breathtaking with the snow as well"] he said lightly. He watched as she turned and stepped into the bath. He licked his lips lightly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She really was a sight to see. He was loyal, even before marriage. He never had hand maids, and he never would. Odette on the other hand will has as many as she wanted. He moved behind the woman, and lifted her a little, and placed her onto his lap. [#ADD8E6 "You will have all of me Odette. No woman will ever dress me, or bathe with me. The only woman to ever see me the way I was born, will be you. As for a child, I will do everything in my power to get you one"] he promised.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He wanted the woman to be happy here. The castle was her's to roam around, the grounds as well. He leaned down and pressed his lips to her bare shoulder. He reached for the washcloth on the side of the tub, and dipped it into the hot bath water. He then pulled back and rubbed it down along her back. Having the woman in his lap was doing wonders. When she mentioned s*x was on the table as well, he knew it would have to be. He wouldn't have taken no for an answer.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "As for you my Queen. Whenever you need my touch, my kiss, my hands, whatever you please, wherever you please, just say the word and I will drop whatever it is I'm doing, to make sure you are taken care of"] he breathed out. He slipped his hands down between her legs, and shifted a bit more against her. He wanted to feel her touch, her kiss, the sounds she would make, he wanted all of it, and now. He couldn't hold it back anymore. He lifted her up, and spun her around in one swift motion.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "Enough talk, I want you"] he growled out. He pressed his hips up against her's, and his lips crushed aganst her's one more. The feeling of her lips on his, he snaked his tongue between her lips, pulling her hips against his even more. The hot bath water, the feeling of her skin, everything was perfect. He made sure to please the woman, until she was panting. It's been ages since he's had a woman, and the way their bodies moved together, was amazing. When he was satisfied, along with the woman he leaned back.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He reached up and brushed the hair out of her eyes. She really was beautiful, and he was one lucky bastard just then. He leaned forward and nipped at her lower lip lightly. [#ADD8E6 "If I didn't know any better, I would take you again, and again, clear until dawn. I'm sure you have more questions, or other things you want to talk about?"] he asked. He hoped not, because he was still craving the woman. The water was slowly starting to chill, but he wasn't ready to let her go quite yet.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   217d ago

If she was to remain here in the grand Romanian country, then all she wanted was free will to go and do whatever she pleased within reason.
Odette wanted to explore, find little places to hide where she could be by herself and dream of the time where her heart once pumped her blood.

It was the little things she wanted most; like feeling her chest rise and fall as she breathed in oxygen feeding her lungs but this was not her life anymore and it hadn't been for centuries.

Dominick granted her freedom to roam free, to fly like a bird and explore the grounds that were larger than she could possibly imagine and to of course, experience snow.
Odette was somewhat grateful for the permission a she sunk low into the sweet smelling water while petals attached themselves to her skin.

Loyal before marriage.
Yes, it was a must and her little indiscretion the night before would never happen again...or so she would try as much as possible. Here was a man who clearly wanted her, wanting her presence near while Vincent ran from her, rejected her very being,
The choice was simple, was it not?

[i "As for a child, I will do everything in my power to get you one"]

Odette gave off a slight smile upon hearing his words, letting Dominick join her in the bathtub holding each other in an embrace for both to feel warmth an the way the water created small wakes of movement.

Kisses from his very mouth landed on her shoulder while her body was wiped with a cloth ever so soft before being spun around quick and swift.
The water splashed.

Odette rested upon Dom's lap, legs on either side of his thighs, chest against chest while her hands gently caressed his face and stared deep into his eyes before lowering her head and kissed him deeply.

All of her senses were heightened.
There was nothing like it and it was not long until their bodies became one. Odette broke the kiss and lent back, head tilted to face up at the ceiling with her eyes closed.

Bodies moved together in unison.
Water moved with them.
Noises of pure unadulterated enjoyment filled the room and went on for a long while after.

With all good things thought, it all came to an end.
The pair finished with screams so wonderful and the water came to chill.

Odette opened her eyes and looked at Dominick with a smile and a laugh as slowly she became tired.
He truly took her for a ride and tried his hardest to please her and it worked.

[b "Well, that was...quite something else..."] she spoke softly, remaining seated upon his lap.

[i "I'm sure you have more questions, or other things you want to talk about?"]

Dominick still wanted her.
It felt nice to be wanted and adored and not rejected like the night before.

[b "In all honesty, I have a lot of questions but nothing I want to speak of now. I rather enjoy being here and now however speaking of that ...the water is getting a little cold.."] she spoke, looking down before slowly sliding off from the Ruler of the Kingdom and began to remove herself from the bathtub.

Up and down, her body glistening with water - shining as she reached for a thick dressing down with a high collar at the back of the neck. Two clasps together at her navel and her lady warmth, leaving the sternum and the sides of her mounds free to look at from the split opening.

[b "You have changed over the centuries of me knowing you. You're not as vile as I thought you were..."]
StolenRelics-ғallen   216d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The sounds coming from Odette's small frame was enough to drive any man insane. He was just glad he was the one causing those sounds, and not someone else. He knew that he would end up seeing Vincent sooner or later. He would have to update the male and quickly. When the water was getting colder by the moment, he watched as Odette stepped out of the bath, and his eyes were filled with lust once more. He was raised to be a loyal man, and he would stay that way. Didn't matter if they weren't married yet or not.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He reached over and pulled the drain stopper, and watched as the bubbles slowly went down the drain. He then pushed himself up and climbed out as well. He grabbed a towel and wrapped it around his waist. He then made his way into the room. It was getting closer to dawn, and he knew they would both need to turn in for the day. [#ADD8E6 "We will have all the time in the world to talk. I'll have to update Vincent as soon as we awake this evening"] he said softly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He looked the woman up and down, and licked his lips. [#ADD8E6 "If it wasn't so close to dawn, I would take you again"] he growled. He then reached out and grabbed her around the waist. He leaned his head down and pressed his lips to her neck. He wanted so badly to mark the beautiful skin, but didn't know how she would feel about it. He gently kissed her neck, sliding his hands down to her ass, and pulled her against his front. The things she was doing to him, was making him slowly lose his restraint with her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He pulled back and looked down into her eyes. She was the most beautiful creature he'd ever laid eyes on, and soon she would be his. They would have the rest of time to explore each other's bodies, create children, and so forth. Maybe he would finally leave his home land and travel. He had wanted to do that when he had been alive, and never got the chance too. That's when another idea hit him. [#ADD8E6 "How about we do a honeymoon after the wedding. You choose where we go"] he offered lightly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He wanted to make sure she was happy, and he would do everything he could to make her happy. Even if it meant travelling back to her homeland as well. He would travel to the ends of the earth for her. He let out a low growl as he finally let the woman go. [#ADD8E6 "We should turn in for the day. Pick your side of the bed"] he said as he unwrapped the towel from around his waist, and dried himself off. He wasn't about to dampen his silk sheets quite yet. He knew the two of them would sooner or later.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 For now, he was ready to turn in, and call it a day. He watched the woman with silent eyes, and let her choose her side of the bed. He then slipped in between the sheets after she did. He snaked his arms around her waist, and pulled her back against him. It's been ages since he had a woman in his bed, and it was a nice feeling. [#ADD8E6 "Sleep well my Queen, and when you wake, it'll be a whole new day, and it'll be your's to explore"] he said lightly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He ran his fingers lightly along her stomach, enjoying the feeling of her skin against his. He closed his eyes, and soon he was asleep. The nights events danced around the man's mind, as he held onto the woman beside him. Things were going to change, and hopefully for the better.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   215d ago

Odette watched ever so carefully, the movements of a man who pleased her in such a way; it was unexpected.
The water in the bathtub began to swirl and create waves once movement was made but soon calmed down and flowed down the drain pipe as the plug was removed.

The scene of rose still filled the air and danced in Odette's nostrils but still, she did not flinch but still rathered kept eyes on the fine looking specimen of a man.
Romanian men were sure built in stature, that was true.

Vincent and Dominick were examples of that.

Finally removing her gaze, Odette shifted from the bathroom and wandered to the Kings bedroom as if it were she was floating on air.
The gown that rested on her skin trailed behind like a train as her body began to ache; the muscles sore and the wash of sheer exhaustion took over.
Soon, it was to be dawn and her body was telling her she needed the rest and that of drinking blood was imminent.

[i "We will have all the time in the world to talk. I'll have to update Vincent as soon as we awake this evening""]
[b "You plan on telling Vincent?.."] she spoke softly, removing the gown and letting it fall to the floor as she raised an eyebrow at Dominick and soon found and felt his arms around her waist as well as lips kissing the slenderness of her neck.

Why would he tell Vincent?
A wave of panic washed over Odette for a moment before she breathed out and calmed down. It didn't matter, choices were made clearly.

It was not long until they both chose sides of the bed and the two faced each other as they spoke about the honeymoon and children and happily ever afters.
Italy was where she wanted to go and perhaps 2 children to keep one child happy to have someone an vice versa, but that was for discussion at length at another time.

Dawn approached quick and the will of falling asleep took Odette.
[i "Sleep well my Queen, and when you wake, it'll be a whole new day, and it'll be your's to explore"]
[b "Goodnight, Dominick.."] she muttered as she turned around, back resting against her soon to be husbands chest as they shared an embraced and soon drifted off while the sun rose and made the day better than the last.

She dreamt of nothing.
She no longer dreamt of anything as it was all pitch black forever more but one thing was for sure, Odette was excited about the oncoming days where she was allowed to explore and do what she wanted; within reason.
StolenRelics-ғallen   215d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Why wouldn't he tell Vincent? Vincent had the right to know about the wedding plans. He brushed it aside as he curled up around Odette. He laid there for the longest time, and soon he could hear the birds chirping outside. That's one thing he missed about being alive. He hated Vincent for that reason. Vincent wasn't a vampire, but a demon. He was still allowed to walk around the day, and that's what made him and Dominick a good pair. Soon the male was asleep, his arms wrapped around the woman beside him. His dreams filled with nothing.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 When the sun was setting, the male slowly started to stir, and he streached his arms over his head, a growl escaping from his lips. His eyes then moved to the woman beside him. A small smirk passed over his lips as he reached out and touched the woman's hip. God she was breathtaking, and so much more. [#ADD8E6 "It's time to arise Odette"] he said in a soft tone of voice. He then kissed her shoulder, and moved towards her chest. He slowly rolled her onto her back, and watched her silently.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He moved his hand towards her thigh, and shifted her legs apart. He moved between her legs, and put his hands on either side of head. [#ADD8E6 "Another thing you need to know, we will be making passionate love every night we awake, and before we turn in for the day. Whenever else you crave it, no need to say it, just do"] he said as he lowered himself down upon her. Soon he felt her warmth around him, and he growled. He moved his hips against her, taking the woman again. This time he was a bit more rough.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 When he was finished with them both, he climbed off of her, looked down into her eyes, and kissed her mouth. [#ADD8E6 "Vincent should be in the parlor, go and see if he's here. If so, let him know I'll be down in a little while"] he said as he rolled off of the woman, and walked to the bathroom. He needed to take a quick shower, and clean himself off. The smells wafting into his noise was amazing. Pure, magical, animal incent. The male shut the bathroom door and locked it. He stepped into the shower.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He waited for the water to heat up, before he stepped inside and took a quick shower. His mind on Odette the whole time. The woman he would be bound too for the rest of their undead, lives. That's something he was looking forward too. No one would be able to touch her, please her, give her the life she wanted unlike him. He just hoped that Vincent would understand when he wouldn't be needed as much anymore. He titled his head back, closed his eyes, and enjoyed the hot water on his skin. This was his only time to fully think.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   214d ago

Vincent did have a right to know about the movements and decisions  that his King had made or simply was making.
With the little mishap of herself and Dominick's loyal number one sharing a very passionate kiss, the two shared a spark that Odette was unable to forget.

Perhaps if Vincent knew all he had too from Dominick, the attraction cord would be cut and that would be the end of it.

Odette did not speak a reply to the question but instead clamoured onto the bed, under the sheets and fell into a dark dreamland of nothing and that's how she remained for the hours of day; in the arms of Dominick.

Odette was woken by a slight movement of a touch upon her hip and a kiss on her right shoulder.
A sultry, masculine voice whispered and beckoned her to wake but for a moment, Odette made noise that of a no and remained in position until Dominicks animal urges were in full swing and turned the woman to rest open her back.

Now, she was awake.

[b "So feisty.."] she muttered with a smile, looking up at Dom who took refuge inbetween those long legs and made himself right at home in his soon to be wife.
Odette closed her eyes and tilted her head back upon feeling a rush of eagerness to follow Dominicks movements; all the while speaking on more times in intimacy, the better.

More times with him, perhaps less of Vincent in her mind.

It was rougher the second time round.
Both bit into one another with wounds that would heal ever so quickly.
However all good things came to an end and once their adoration love making ceased, Odette watched as her new found lover wandered to the shower while she removed herself from the mattress and got dress with clothes that waited.

Minions of the house hold flocked together and washed Odette with silk towels and rose water before dressing the soon to be Queen in the finest material.
Upon her skin rested lingerie that was hidden by a periwinkle blue/purple dress of silk adorned by lace.
A corset laced up so tight that her mounds were pushed up in such a way that the gem of her necklaces rested inbetween the cleavage tightly.
Odette growled at the tightness but beauty was pain.
Hair brushed and remained down in long flowy strands, she breathed out while the final touches were being placed and soon found herself wandering towards the Parlour to meet up with Vincent.

A meeting that she dreaded and for some reason became really nervous about the moment her hand rested upon the doors and pushed them open.

The room was exquisite, lit with candles that made the room glow in warmth.
Furniture and decor so gothic it was regal.

Odette stepped into the parlour slowly and soon found her eyes locked on the ever so loyal Vincent.

Loyal ...really, not anymore.

"Good evening, Vincent....."

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Dominick took his time in the shower, and heard the other maids come into the room, and soon the bath water was running again, and he finished his shower and watched as Odette was taken care of. He had forbade any other male to wash Odette. He didn't mind if women touched her, but if another man did, he would rip their heads off. He then walked out of the room and got dressed. That's when there was a knock on the door, and he opened it. A messenger was there, with a letter in hand.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He thanked the messenger, and then sat on the bed, he watched as Odette got dressed, his eyes filling with lust for the woman. The silence between them was fine. He watched as she left the room, and he opened the letter. He let out a growl, as he read through it a second time. He had to leave for a month. What was he supposed to do? He couldn't tell the vampire in the United State's no. He stood and had one of the maids pack his things, as he made his way into the parlor.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He caught the end of what Odette said, and Vincent stood and bowed lightly. [#ADD8E6 "Don't worry about that. I have to go to the United States. Things are getting out of hand out there, and I've been summoned to help. I'll be gone a month. Odette will catch you up on everything. I have to leave, and now"] he said in a low voice. He walked over and grabbed Odette, and pulled her into him. He leaned down and kissed her deeply, damn well knowing that Vincent was there. He didn't care though. Odette was his.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ADD8E6 "I'll be seeing you in a month my Queen"] he said softly as he brushed her hair from her face. He then turned to Vincent. [#ADD8E6 "Take care of her"] he said. Vincent nodded, and soon Dominick was gone, bags in hand, and soon off the palace grounds, heading to a ship that would take him to the States.]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Vincent had been gone longer than he thought he would have been. He wanted to let Dominick claim what was his, and he didn't want to keep seeing Odette. He couldn't stop thinking about the woman, and the way she had felt in his arms, and the way her lips seemed to form around his. He let out a small sigh and looked up when she entered. [#D1B419 "Hello Odette.."] he said with a bow. Before he could say something more, Dominick was in the room saying he had to leave for the States, and now.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He watched as his King kissed the woman, he'd been lusting after. He nodded lightly and soon the two were alone. He shifted his weight from one foot to the next. [#D1B419 "Well.. Since you and I are alone, do you mind catching me up on what Dominick is talking about? I seemed to have missed something while I had been gone"] he breathed out. The demon was fighting the urge to do what Dominick did. He wanted too so badly, but knew he couldn't. He had to keep the woman safe, and that's just what he would do.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He moved over to the table, and sat down. He had to keep his eyes off of the woman, the way her clevage showed, the way she looked all together. He wanted to rip that fabric off of her skin, wanted to feel the woman under him, begging him to keep going. Just the thought of that, seemed to drive him insane, and he had to hide his feelings just then. He was a man after all, and he would have a hard time hiding his need for her. He fell silent watching her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "When's the wedding date? What all do you need help with the planning?"] he asked. There was so much more he wanted to ask, but knew better than that. He then fell silent, as he put his hands into his lap, trying to think of anything else, besides the beautiful woman before him.]]

What came next was not expected.
The very moment she entered the Parlour, locked eyes on Vincent and listened to him speak; it was as if time spent with Dominick was forgotten.
How could she possibly do no longer think of a lovely time in bed with a man who clearly wants her than the man who stood by the fireplace.

Vincent greeted her with a hello and spoke her very name which she closed her eyes at, liking the sound of it from his lips but still a sense of fury remained. There was no denying it, Odette was angry.

It was broken with Dominick entering the room with fast walk and did not exchange pleasentries but rather spoke on his soon to be absence.

Odette opened her eyes and turned her head to stared at the man who showed her many ways of affection in one night.
He was leaving?

"What do you mean you are leaving?....I just arrived here" she spoke, listening to the remaining words of Dominick and gave off a sigh.
It was not long until she found place in the Kings arms and the pair kissed, there in the Parlour where Vincent rested.
Odette kissed Dominick harder knowing full well of the other male hanging around but soon enough found herself and Vincent alone with Dominicks words of his loyal friend to keep her safe.

"Please stay safe...." she shortly whispered, breaking the kiss and rested forehead against his own.
Within a flash, Dominick vanished; no longer in sight.

If she were to relay what Dominick wanted to say to Vincent, she was not going to sugar coat it.
As much as she felt sired to Vincent, his actions the other night proved embarrassing.

"We fucked..." she spoke as plainly as she possibly could while sauntering to the fireplace to feel warmth while Vincent sought refuge upon a chair by the table.
Perhaps the words were not the right ones but they were blunt and honest to the truth.
The urge was starting to grow the closer she got to him.
Breathing became rapid where her mounds would push up against her corset created perfect rounds.
The feelings and desperate wanting for the male Odette would describe as craving blood the moment she turned.
It was desperation at its finest and it was real.

Looking at the fire before glancing at Vincent, he sat there at the end of the table in the chair that was Dominicks.
He looked good in it. He looked like it was his rightful place, or the more reason to look away and she did, turning her body against the fireplace, back to the flames as she moved her long hair to one side of her neck getting all the warmth she possible could.

Vincent offered help with the wedding but she had cut him off mid sentence.

"I do not want or need anything from you.."

Again, Odette looked at Vincent trying everything she had inside not to speak on how much she wanted him in every way.
StolenRelics-ғallen   208d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Vincent watched the woman, and he raised a 'brow slightly when she mentioned what her and Dominick did. He didn't care about that. In all honesty he didn't need to know that. A slow smirk passed over his lips though, as he leaned back in the chair and placed is hands on his stomach. [#D1B419 "I'm sure you did, and I'm sure he was gentle, and then rough. But I don't need to know what you and Dominick do behind closed doors. Dominick wouldn't even have told me that, if I'm being honest, he'd be upset you spoke of it"]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "What you do behind closed doors, is what needs to stay behind closed doors. No one needs to know what you and Dominick do. It's your private space, and if I know that man at all, and I'm pretty damn sure I do, he wouldn't have boasted about bedding you. You are a beautiful woman, and I'm sure you are amazing in bed, but that's for him and him only"] he growled out. It was disrespectful to talk about your sex life with someone. Especially when that someone, wants to bed you himself.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He licked his lips lightly watching the woman. He could tell by her body language, that she wanted him. He, himself wanted her as well. He stood, and she could clearly see what she was doing to him. His pants were getting a bit tight, but he had to fight that urge. He rounded the table, and walked towards the fireplace. His eyes filled with lust for the woman. [#D1B419 "You've been on my mind the whole time I've been gone"] he said in a low tone of voice. He reached out and brushed her lips with his finger.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Those lips, those breasts, your voice, smell, everything. I can't get you out of my fucking head, and I hate it. I wish I had never met you, but at the same time I'm glad I did. I want you Odette, and by your body language, you want me as well. Dominick is gone for a month, I have you to myself for a month, and I'm going to do more than keep you safe"] he growled. He then pinned her to the wall beside the fireplace, and pressed his hips against her's.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The woman could clearly feel what she was doing to him. He leaned down and pressed his lips to her neck. [#D1B419 "If you didn't want me, you would have gone with your king. You would have stopped him, and travelled with him. I know this for a fact. Don't try and deny it"] he said as he rolled his hips against her tightly. He pressed his lips to her neck, and bit down slightly. He wouldn't be able to draw blood, but he didn't care. He wanted to feel the woman more than anything. In a way, he was tempting her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 His hands found the sides of her, and he rubbed his fingers against them slowly. He pulled back and looked into her eyes. [#D1B419 "Tell me, you don't want this"] he breathed out. He wanted her to stop him, but he didn't want to stop. He [i needed] her, more than he thought he did. He licked his lower lip lightly, as he kept her pinned to the wall, his hips pressed tightly against her's, his hands exploring the sides of her body. His eyes searching her's, waiting for her to say something, or stop what was about to happen.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   207d ago

[i "I don't need to know what you and Dominick do behind closed doors. Dominick wouldn't even have told me that, if I'm being honest, he'd be upset you spoke of it"]

That was a true fact.
The moment she opened her mouth and spoke the words she did, Odette instantly regretting it. There were far more better ways to speak on everything that was said and done between Dominick and herself but when it came to Vincent, she wanted to make him hurt from how humiliated he made her feel.

Private intimate moments were meant to be held secret but in this case, Odette blew the gate wide open and it seemed to cause a little annoyance in Vincent, but not what she was after.
[i "You are a beautiful woman, and I'm sure you are amazing in bed, but that's for him and him only.."]
[b "Damn right on that." Odette spoke softly but had a tone of complete seriousness.]

Oh how she wanted to run away from the spot her feet were glued too.
Eyes of the centuries old vampire watched and lusted over a man who finally stood up from a chair and wandered over to the fireplace; listening to every single word of his and allowing fingertips to brush against her lips.
That single motion, made Odette close her eyes with her mind screaming to move away.

She was on his mind.
He was on her mind.

All of this was just going to be trouble and the two of the knew it but they just could not stop.
[b "You shouldn't say such things, Vincent"] Odette whispered as she opened her eyes once more and gazed upon the man that could make her dead heart skip a beat.

Words, they were powerful.

Vincent knew his words, what to say and where to place them with tones so melodic, Odette was ready to crumple at his feet.
[i "I want you Odette, and by your body language, you want me as well.."]
[b "Stop, Vincent just.....stop.."]
[i "Dominick is gone for a month, I have you to myself for a month, and I'm going to do more than keep you safe"]

A quick spin, it was within seconds that Odette became thrusted up against the wall by the fireplace, pinned and breathing heavily with desperate want and need; she felt everything he was doing to her.

A tilt of her head revealed her bare neck which Vincent took upon himself to show the kindest of love there was.
Sweet kisses with little taunts of nibbling bites while a single hand of hers became unpinned and palm rested against the back of Vincent's head; fingers scrunching the strands of his very hair as she moaned in little gasps.

[i "If you didn't want me, you would have gone with your king. You would have stopped him, and traveled with him. I know this for a fact. Don't try and deny it"]
[b "I cannot deny this. The way you make me feel, the things I think; you have completely flooded my head. I did not want to go, you are right. I wanted to stay here and see you even if you did not wish to see me. Don't deny it, you would of missed me..."] she spoke with a smile, eyes closed as she continued to feel the Demon male's body grinding and rubbing against her own.

Teeth, two began to slither down from her gums as the urge of wanting his blood to be inside her began almost unbearable to take. The bond was broken moments later, Odette breathing heavily - staring at Vincent.

[i "Tell me, you don't want this"]
[b "Id then be lying. I can keep secrets, can you? A month of wanting you freely, needing you is not enough. I need eternity..."]
StolenRelics-ғallen   205d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Vincent knew what he was doing was wrong. He was going behind his best friends back, and lusting after the soon to be queen. He didn't want Dominick to have her, he wanted to claim her as his own. He wanted her, and she wanted him. It was driving him insane. He wanted the fabric gone from the both of them. He wanted her in his bed, he wanted her on him, he needed her more than ever. He pulled back and watched her. He could see the want in her eyes, the need. He knew what was going to happen.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I know this is wrong, but I can't help it. I wish you hadn't come here, to be married to another. Dominick is my best and longest friend, and I'm going behind his back. I don't care. We have a month, maybe longer if something else happens"] he whispered. The need for her was getting to be too much to bare. He needed her with each passing second. She could feel what she was doing to him, and he was slowly losing the battle of stopping himself. That's when a maid cleared her throat.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [b "Master Vincent, your chambers are cleaned and ready for you now"] came the sound of the woman's voice. He turned and looked towards her, and he had seen where her eyes went. [#D1B419 "Thank you little mouse, you are free for the night. I know it's still young, but Dominick is gone, and you and the other's are allowed to do what you please for the rest of the night. What you see and hear for the next month, will not be spoken of to him at all, do you understand?"] he growled out.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The small woman nodded lightly. [b "Yes Master Vincent. I'll let the other's know as well"] she said as she ducked her head, and hurried out of the room. Soon they were alone once more, and he turned back to Odette. He then grabbed her around the waist, and led her out of the room, and down to the hall. [#D1B419 "My bed isn't as nice as Dominick's, but I'm sure you'll still be plenty comfortable"] he growled out. He pushed his door open, and pulled the woman into the room. His finger's finding the back of her dress.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He made quick work and soon she had the dress off, and on the floor. He took her jewelry off, and placed them onto the table beside him. [#D1B419 "I'm not like Dominick, and I'm sure he's been rough with you, but I won't be. You'll be on cloud nine the whole time. The feelings of love will be all what I'm doing. I'll take my time with you"] he breathed out. He then led her to the bed, and helped her upon it. He slowly climbed onto the bed, still clothed himself.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He trailed his lips along her skin, kissing her legs, up to her thighs, and then moved towards her even more. His lips leaving little trails of kisses, and bites along the way. Soon his body was on top of hers, his eyes searching hers. [#D1B419 "Tell me what you want, if you don't tell me, then show me"] he breathed out, his fingers digging into her sides. He was aching to feel her, hear her, he wanted her. Soon he would, and he knew it too. He wanted to see how far he could push the Vampire, before she took what she wanted.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   204d ago

[i "We have a month, maybe longer if something else happens.."]

What wonderful words.
Maybe longer than a month if anything else was too happen.

For a single fraction of a moment, while in the arms of a man who made her feel exuberant, thoughts entered her mind as too what could possibly happen between the two of them.
What if they did fall in love? Would the two of them run off into the night and live an eternal life wherever they ended up?
Would Vincent actually be bold enough to leave his best friend behind for the sake of a female?

They could have to cross that bridge when the time came; but right now, it was just the two of them and the feelings they could no longer deny.

Odette remained up against the guilded wall with Vincent close before her that she could feel his hot sweet breath against her face; close enough that she felt as if she was going cross-eyed but she did rather enjoy the feeling of his lower half against her dress.

As her mouth opened to speak, Odette was soon cut off by a clearing of the throat as a handmaiden entered the room and spoke on Vincent's room being ready and for a moment, Odette began to panic.
The two had been caught already in a very compromising position, but Master Vincent took care of that issue and spoke that what she had witnessed, never happen and to tell the others on if the saw or heard anything to keep it to themselves.

A sigh of relief the moment the young maid agreed before stepping away to speak to the others. This gave way for Vincent to usher Odette out of the parlour and down to hall to his room that was not as elegant as her or Dominick's own but it was nice none the less.

[i "My bed isn't as nice as Dominick's, but I'm sure you'll still be plenty comfortable"]
[b "I'm sure it'll do just fine, but who said we will remain on the bed?"] she spoke softly as the laces of the dress she wore became considerably loose and fabric fell onto the floor in an instant.

[b "You do not need to compare yourself to Dominick each time. You may want the same things but that does not make you alike..."] again she replied, leaning back onto the bed and crawled backwards until she reached the softly pillows and laid down upon the mattress willingly, head tilted to the side as her eyes watched Vincent slither on top of her still fully clothes and begun to kiss her foot, ankle....calf, knee, thigh which made her smile and relish in what he was doing.

It was not long until he was in between her legs; the urge of needing him in her body started to become indescribable.
[ "Tell me what you want, if you don't tell me, then show me"]

Odette kept silent and continued to gaze into her new found lovers eyes.
Leaning up, the pair found their lips and began to kiss in passion with both of their eyes closed before Odette tilted his head to the side with cheek against cheek; finding the perfect little spot on Vincent's neck.

Fangs slipped out from her gums and within seconds sunk down, piercing skin and the vein and fed slowly, moaning softly from the delectable taste.
While she fed, hands lowered down and undid Vincent's pants in a flurry of fast movements to which he too helped as much as he could.

While Odette finally got Vincent into her system bound with blood, she ultimately got a second dose as he entered her without any hesitation.
The gasp of the Romanians girth and length caused Odette to break contact and tilt her head back from the pleasurable feeling.

He was nothing like Dominick.
StolenRelics-ғallen   202d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The male knew what she wanted, and he wasn't about to let her get it. He pulled away before her fangs could pierce the skin. [#D1B419 "No. No vampire is allowed to drink from me. Doesn't matter if you are queen or not. You can't just bite and feed, when someone's not willing. You have to ask, and beg for that from me"] he said as he pinned her hips down to the bed. It might ruin the mood, but he didn't care. He was still going to get the woman, and he knew she wanted him as well.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He leaned his head down and kissed her neck, and chest, moving to her mounds, and then his fingers dug into her skin. He felt the woman's fingers moving his clothes aside, and he helped the best he could. Soon he had what he wanted, and hearing the sounds she made under him, was enough to drive him insane. He'd wanted her in his bed since the first time he laid eyes on her. He wanted to feel the woman's body under his own, and he had that. He would keep having it too.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 As soon as they were both finished, and pleased, the male rolled off the top of her, and laid beside her. He ran his fingers over her bare, cold skin, and he couldn't help but ask the questions on his mind. [#D1B419 "Why did you agree to being Dominick's? When you could have made the choice, and chose someone else? Why do you want to feed on me?"] he asked in a small tone of voice. He wouldn't mind letting her feed on him, but she had to ask permission first. He wasn't about that anyway.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He'd heard that if a Demon's blood entered a vampire, it couldn't be good. He wasn't about to put the woman into danger either. It was risky enough that he had bedded her, and that he had gone behind his best friend's back. What would happen if Dominick found out? That's something he didn't want to think about for long. He searched the woman's face with his eyes. [#D1B419 "Talk to me Odette, please. I don't like the silence"] he said softly. He meant it too. The silence from her, was breaking his heart. Had he done something wrong?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Maybe he should have let her feed on him. He wouldn't do something like that though. There's no way in hell he would either. He licked his lip lightly as he cocked his head to the side. His fingers moved lower, towards the top of her hips. [#D1B419 "You are beautiful, I want you again Odette"] he said with a growl. He wanted her all night long. He would end up taking her anyway she wanted as well. He was kind of curious to see what she meant by not staying on the bed as well.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "If I did something wrong, tell me, instead of being silent. I want to know what I did, and I want to make sure I fix it"] he said as he squeezed her hip slightly. He was fighting the urge to take her again. He knew he couldn't do that, at least not yet. He wanted her to want him again as well. He wasn't about to do something she didn't want him doing. At least he had that kind of respect for the woman.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   201d ago

What she wanted, Odette did not get.

She was so close in tasting the very essence that flowed inside of Vincent but while so close, he refused her......again. This was now the second time and the second time round happened to be while they were in a compromising position.
If Vincent wanted to embarrass her again, he did.

[i "You have to ask, and beg for that from me"]

Odette listened but remained silent, biting her tongue to not speak, we chose the high road and just ultimately decided to indulge herself in a little Vincent.
The sound the pair made was just like a song and for a moment while being intimate, Odette swore she saw heaven; a sight she wanted to see over and over again.
Their love making was passionate and the two connected as one for the longest time in ways she never could have imagined.
All good things thought indeed had to come to and end and as the two finished their pleasurable high, Vincent removed himself from Odette's body and she laid there while feeling fingers upon her bare naked skin.

[i "Why did you agree to being Dominick's? When you could have made the choice, and chose someone else? Why do you want to feed on me?"]

Too many questions.
Never in her centuries had she ever slept with a man only for him to ask questions afterward; hell, Dominick didn't even do that.
Odette still remained silent, truth be told, still trying to find the words on how she was ultimately feeling as the greatest honor one could have in a Queen wanting their blood was rejected.

It was his body though yet still she remained silent, turning her head and no longer looked at the ceiling but rather at Vincent as her ears continued to hear his voice as against he spoke wanting her again as if their time together wasn't enough.
It was indeed fun and pleasurable and Odette would of gladly done it again if it wasn't for that little mishap.

[i "If I did something wrong, tell me, instead of being silent. I want to know what I did, and I want to make sure I fix it."]

Odette kept her eyes on Vincent for a moment longer only to break the gaze to look down and removed the sheet from her body.
Sitting up, there Odette swung her legs over the side of the mattress and stood up and started to wander, grabbing her clothes that were on the chaise lounge by the end of the bed.

[b "Being a demon, yes; I know what you are. Being a demon you probably do not know about sharing blood or obtaining blood while in the midst of lovemaking but it is a big deal. It is another form of intimacy. I suppose it bounds the pair...sort of like soulmates...finalizes it.."] she spoke as she began to place her dress back onto the nudity that was her body. No help but her own as Vincent remained in bed.
[b "I have been rejected by you, twice now Vincent. The first time, sure I can partly understand why as you were afraid but this....rejection at the biggest honor you could get, I just don't know how I feel about it. I need some air...."]

Turning her back on Vincent, Odette wandered to the door only to stop and turn back around to look at her new lover. [b "Another thing you need to understand, I do not beg. I guess you and Dominick are alike after all as he too, wanted me to beg. I am not a dog, I am a Queen and I am soon to be your Queen, remember that.."] she muttered before removing herself from the room and the current position she was in only to wander the maze to hallways to find a doorway to outside.

It was still so dark but the lights of the stars and the moon cast a nice moonlit glow.
Lifting her dress up some, slowly she descended the stairs down towards the garden to nightshade plants that blossomed in darkness.

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Watching as the woman slipped from his bed, made the male wanted to grab her wrist and pull her back. He didn't know anything about being fed on while mating, and he sure as hell wouldn't do that either. Just that thought alone, made the male shudder. If it was such a high honor, why hadn't she said something until now? That's not the type of man he was. Rejected? He didn't really think of it that way, and yet here he was laying in bed, watching the woman dress, and walk out of the room.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He knew all too well what was going to happen. He laid there, and placed his arm over his head. This was a time when he could turn to Dominick, and ask for advice on what to do. He wouldn't be able to do it now, because he was sleeping with his best friends, soon to be wife. He knew he had fucked up, and yet, he wasn't doing anything to stop her from walking away. He laid there for a little bit longer, before he climbed out of bed. He found his slacks, and shirt, and pulled them on.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He found his shoes, but decided not to worry about them. He knew these walls like the back of his hand, and knew she was needing to escape the walls. He was stopped by the same maiden. [b "Master, is everything okay? I saw the queen going outside"] she said softly. Vincent looked down at her and nodded. [#D1B419 "Everything is fine"] he growled out, and stepped to the side. He knew she was just doing her job, and he knew what she was searching for as well. He stopped and turned to face her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I meant what I said. Whatever happens between the Queen and I, needs to be left unsaid. If I get wind of you speaking about anything about what you've seen, I will have your head on a platter"] he growled. The maid nodded lightly. [b "I understand, and I won't say a word. But I do have to ask.. What you and I had, it's over isn't it?"] she asked. The male sighed as he looked down into her eyes. She was a beautiful woman, but he was chasing after someone else. He wanted Odette more.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Yes it's over between you and I. You deserve better as well."] was all he said, as he turned away from the woman, and hurried down the halls, and out the doors. He saw Odette's back, and he stopped to watch her. The moonlight shining down on her, made her look even more beautiful. He knew he was overstepping, and knew she wanted to be alone, but he wasn't about to let whatever it was they had going, slip through his fingers. He took a breath and walked down the steps barefoot. The grass under his feet cool, and slightly damp.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He managed to catch up to the woman, and he grabbed her wrist softly. [#D1B419 "I know you wanted to be left alone, but you need to hear my side of it as well. The reason I rejected you, is because I didn't know it was an honor to be fed on, while making love to you. That's something I would have to get used too, but I vowed to [i never] let a vampire feed on me. I saw what it did to my mother when I had been a boy"] he breathed out.

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He took a breath and started speaking again. [#D1B419 "When I had been younger, I watched my mother fall in love with a vampire. She was told over and over that he loved her, that he wanted her to be his queen. He had promised her that if she left her husband, and me behind she would be made queen. She would be changed.

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He let her wrist go, and turned back towards the castle, and went back inside. Leaving her with the story as to why, he wouldn't let her feed on him.

If she didn't, then he would know they were over.]]

There was something more to the way Vincent had acted as well as his blunt refusal.
It was not because he did not know of the honor, surely Dominick spoke to him about that; there was just something more than Vincent was not telling her. Being that they just met, Odette expected not to be told in detail but to be mentioned of it none the less.

Truth be told, she was getting way ahead of herself.
Throughout the years in being enemies with the man she was soon to be married, Odette had often seen Vincent by his King's side and there, despite hatred; was always fascination. Odette knew deep down she found him wildly attractive and wanted nothing more than to feel his naked bust against her own in throws of love making.
It had happened, the two had engaged in adultery and it was worth it.

Truth be told, she had to leave the room as the feelings were overwhelming. This was not the plan.
Odette wandered past the Jimson Weeds in the pale moonlight; lost in her thoughts before she was taken back with a grip of her wrist that made her stop dead in her tracks and be turned around where she looked at Vincent and those thoughts came flooding back.
A month alone together, it was going to be hard...

[b "Vincent, what....what is it?..."] she spoke, keeping her eyes on him and listened ever so intently while he opened his mouth and spoke of the tragedy that, of his mother.
It was heart breaking.
It was horrific and ever so tragic and finally she understood as to why he did not want to be fed on, it all became so clear.
[i "If you want I'll walk away, write to Dominick and have him come and fetch you, and then whatever it is you and I have, will be done. If that's what you want. But I knew you had a right to know. If and when you are ready to come back to bed with me, you know where to find me"]
Now it all made sense but before she could open her mouth to speak, Vincent was gone.
What was she to do?
Writing to Dominick to tell him to come home was the logically thing to do, it was the right thing to do but Odette could not forget about the way she felt in Vincent's arms.
It was trouble.
It was a foolish choice but it was not long until the soon to be Queen left the nightshade garden and wandered back into the castle and found herself back in the bedroom.

Slowly she crept in.
Slowly she undid her royal garment and crawled into bed and did not speak a word under she was naked under the sheet by Vincent's side.

[b "What happened to your Mother, should never of happened at all. The man she love, broke the code and that is unforgivable and reckless..."] she spoke as she looked up at the ceiling. [b "I understand why you don't want ........well that. I have been around for centuries and know to control my thirst but that is no excuse. I am sorry for your loss..."]

Slowly, Odette turned onto her side and looked at Vincent who remained on his back upon the mattress.

[b "I never expected this, Vincent. I have hated Dominick for so long, I had to hate you too, but I just....cant... It's like, you're the other half of me. During our love making, I felt connected to you, like you are my soulmate which is why I ...wanted, to feel your blood flow with mine.."]

[b "I feel so foolish. I should never of agreed to marry. The moment I do, no more you or us. Unless we run away right now and never return...."]
StolenRelics-ғallen   174d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Vincent laid there thinking about what happened. Dominick didn't even know what happened to his mother. All he knew was, that Vincent didn't want to be fed on by anyone. That's why he and Dominick connected so well. He didn't ask questions, and he was understanding. Odette on the other hand was a different story. She wanted one thing, and one thing only. What was so important about feeding while love making? Dominick had never spoken of it, but Dominick and Odette were two different people, so things were different in both of their eyes.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He heard the door open, and footsteps come into the room. He thought it was one of the maids, but then he heard Odette's voice. He felt her slide into bed beside him, and he felt her bare skin against his arm. Was she really coming back to bed with him? His eyes turned to the woman and he shook his head. [#D1B419 "Don't be sorry. Not even Dominick knows about that, and I want it to stay that way"] he said softly. He then fell silent and listened to Odette speaking about how important it was, and how she [i had] to hate him.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He raised a 'brow and looked towards her. [#D1B419 "Honestly, just because you hate Dominick, doesn't mean you had to hate those he had around him either. You are allowed to get to know people. You are allowed to like someone, and instead of holding a grudge, maybe get to know the person before hand"] he whispered. His fingers moved to her thigh, and started moving farther up her leg. He was craving to have the woman once more. He wanted to be inside her, sharing more with her. Yet he held back.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "As for running away, that would make things look worse. We need to stay here, figure out how to coincide with one another. You are bound to Dominick, and I don't have much say in it. But you aren't married yet, so you are free to do whatever you want, and whomever you want as well. Which I hope you won't let another man touch you, besides Dominick and myself"] he said in a low growl. His fingers finding the warmth he was searching for. He shifted onto his side and smirked lightly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Plus you and I have all night to do whatever we please, and for a whole month. I know Dominick will want updates on the wedding when he gets home, and I'll make sure you work on them. But right now, you and I need to focus on one another"] he growled. He removed his hand from the woman, and shifted on top of her. He was still clothed, but that didn't bother him. He had her naked, and in his bed. This time he was going to take his time with her. He looked down into her eyes.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "The first time I laid eyes on you, I wanted you in my bed, right here the way you are now. Now that I have that, I'm going to enjoy it. These next four weeks are going to be amazing. I'm going to take my time with you now"] he said as he lowered his head towards her neck. He pressed his lips to her neck, and his hips down against hers. God she was beautiful, and he didn't want to waste his time either. He kept his trousers on, as his lips explored her skin.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   154d ago

It was one thing to be in love, but to have a man considered soulmate to deceit ones very own heart and commit murder was another and it certainly was not something a young boy should of seen. Odette was many things but a woman who did not care of family was not one of them.

Yes, she had remained in the dark, poisonous garden for a fraction of a moment to think about what Vincent had just spoken of and how hard it must of been to relive that horrid moment in life. Knowing he shared that part with her was quite promising.

Stepping away from the Belladonna flowers, Odette made her way back into the castle, found Vincent's room and got naked; only to rest upon his bed in silence.

Silence was deafening to which Odette shifted onto her side and wrapped an arm around her newly lovers waist, tilting her head up and stared all while apologizing.

[i "Honestly, just because you hate Dominick, doesn't mean you had to hate those he had around him either. You are allowed to get to know people. You are allowed to like someone, and instead of holding a grudge, maybe get to know the person before hand"]
[b "I could never hate you. You are right though; I am allowed to meet new people but who said I wanted too? I am content with this life.."] she spoke, keeping her eyes upon Vincent who stared down upon her while caressing the very means of her femininity. 

She wanted to run away.She wanted to run away from this home and take Vincent with her and Odette spoke about it, out load only to listen to words of Vincent rejecting the idea, that she was bound to Dominick and both had to learn to live with one another and their feelings.
However she was not married yet so anything went.

Odette was determined to make Vincent feel love.
To take Vincent higher than he had ever been. A past love so horrible one refused love but only accept lust; something she wanted to change.

Odette remained quiet and opened her legs willingly as Vincent shifted upon her frame and lent down.
Sweet, passionate kisses were left upon her flesh, her own head tilting to the side allowing the sensual nips of pleasure.

The two engaged in passionate, hot admiration for one another that night and the night after...and the nights after that.
Some nights were more heated than the ones before, both leaving their mark.

Vincent explored every inch of her body as Odette did to Vincent. Coming to know the scars, the marks of his fights, the wars....the loyalty for Dominick that she had tarnished.

The night before the one she enjoyed now, the pair were in her bed that time; hands together in grasp while Vincent laid on top and made himself known in her; the pair's actions were now different. It was as if their intimate moments went from fast, hard - dominating to now sweet....filled with love and Odette was ever so close on opening her mouth and admitting defeat in loving him but she did not.

The night Odette experienced in the present, Vincent was not with her.
Instead, she stood by herself upon the balcony of the ballroom; a room that would soon be filled with people celebrating her marriage to Dominick.

Every night she would be in Vincent's bed before wandering away to sort out of soon to be nuptials.
However tonight, it was important that she focused on the wedding she did not want; to make her letters to Dominick believable.

Stepping away from the balcony, Odette shifted back into the ballroom and stood in the center of the room, looking around it.
She was to marry Dominick.
Once she was married, her and Vincent were to be no more; that was the deal.

Love did not exist.
StolenRelics-ғallen   131d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Getting to know the woman, and exploring every inch of her was enough to drive any man insane. Her words from the first night they had been alone still rang in his head. What was he to do? Was he letting his guard down too fast? Did he want to let the woman in? It was because of creatures like she was, that he had lost everything. Yet he was standing beside Dominick the whole time. As the nights became more and more ended with Odette in his bed, he knew that soon Dominick wouldn't be home.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The closer it was getting to the wedding, and Dominick coming home, he wanted to take Odette to bed one last time. He wanted to cut all ties with her. Another part of him wanted her to choose. Did she want to get married? Or did she want something more? Why be in a marriage if it wasn't filled with love? On the final night they had alone, he walked into the ballroom and shut the door behind him. He made sure the maid's wouldn't enter the room. He paused in the doorway watching her. God she was beautiful.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He turned and made sure the door was locked, before he walked up behind her. He placed his hands on her hips, and pressed against her. The sight of her, the smell of her skin, the feeling's he had stirring inside of him. He leaned down and pressed his lips to her neck. [#D1B419 "My queen.. Tonight's the last night you and I have to share a bed. Tomorrow night Dominick will be having you in bed with him, doing as he pleases with you.. I need you one last time.. Please.."] he nearly begged.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He pressed himself against her even more, showing her how badly he needed her. There was also something he needed to tell her as well. [#D1B419 "Dominick's bringing home a woman for me.. In his last letter, he spoke highly of her. He had hand chosen her, because he doesn't want me being alone at night.. Honestly I don't want anyone else in my bed."] he breathed out. There was so much more he wanted to say. He wanted to tell Odette his true feelings for her. Was he falling in love with the woman?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He didn't want to admit it, but he had a strong feeling that he was falling in love with her. The nights they shared, the talks, the walks in the gardens. The stolen looks when other's were around. He wanted to show her off to the world, he wanted to tell everyone that he has finally found someone he wanted to settle down with. He knew it couldn't happen though, because she wasn't his. She never would be his. He sighed lightly as he spun her around in his arms, and lifted her onto the table behind her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I need you one last time, and I'm not going to let you tell me no"] he nearly growled out. He shifted between her legs, and took her right then and there. His body moving in time with her's. His heart racing, his blood pumping inside of his veins. This time, was the last time. He took his time. He wasn't rough, he was gentle. Even though they were still partly clothed, he still did his best to please the woman in front of him. He let out a growl when he was finished. He then stepped back.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He watched as she fixed herself, and he tilted his head to the side. [#D1B419 "You should sleep in Dominick's bed tonight. I'll see you when Dominick arrives tomorrow"] he said as he kissed her forehead. He made sure nothing was out of place, as he made his way to the door, unlocked it and stepped out. He hated walking away from the woman, and he made sure to keep her smell on his skin for the rest of the night. He made his way to the gardens, and sat on the bench in the moonlight, hating himself.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   125d ago

Everything that had happened within the castle walls, started within mere hours of arriving.
Never...did Odette have intentions of traveling along the lines she did; but when it came to Vincent, he was simply too good to resist.

It was the final night they would share together. She knew it and he knew it and yet, the soon to be Queen of this Kingdom did not want it to end.
Dominic would be back within hours and this fleeting affair would be just that; fleeting.

Planning for the wedding had be made....some planning; little planning. The two were so wrapped up in each other that hardly any planning was done at all and if both were to hide the fact they were disloyal, it needed to be done.

That night, Odette woke up from slumber and this time, did not meet with Vincent as she would every night before and went straight to her wedding plans to hide infidelity.
In the ballroom, Odette stood and looked around, biting her lower lip and mapped out where everything would go when it came down to the reception.

This whole arrangement was a nightmare; but it needed to be done. However all she wanted to do was crawl in Vincent's bed and make love with the man she did, wholeheartedly. She missed and by the sound of the door closing and locking, Vincent missed her too.

Odette smiled as she watched the man saunter over and take a stand behind her, hands upon those delicate hips while his nose and mouth breathed in her scent upon the neck, all the while her head remained tilted.

[i "My queen.. Tonight's the last night you and I have to share a bed. Tomorrow night Dominick will be having you in bed with him, doing as he pleases with you.. I need you one last time.. Please.."]
[b "Tonight is the last night. I cannot bare knowing I will not be near you like this again."] she spoke, biting her lower lip out of habit, eyes closed as Vincent's hands caressed her very body speaking more; now of a woman Dominick was bring home for Vincent to have.
A play thing.
The rage was building.
The jealousy, the hatred of it all and yet she remained silent.
Vincent was not hers.
Not really.

Why did she want to cry?
Why was the heart was had been dead for so long now hurting, feeling as if it was breaking?

Odette was in love and wanted nothing more than to run away and start a family of their own, marry and live out their forever life together as one.

Before she knew it, Odette rested onto a table, back against the polished mahogany; dress up around her waist while her underwear was pulled down and one leg slipping out of it for long limbs to spread apart with ease and welcome her soulmate one last time.

They were rough at the beginning. Items upon the table fell onto the floor while Odette's body was gliding along the surface with every push Vincent made upwards. Pleasurable moans echoed through the room, even more so the moment the pair slowed down and proved in intimacy how much they loved and worshiped one another.

All good things though had to end and Odette fixed herself, made herself look proper once again while Vincent stepped back and tidied himself up knowing full well his seed flowed within his soon to be Queen.

[i "You should sleep in Dominick's bed tonight. I'll see you when Dominick arrives tomorrow"]
[b "Of course. Yes.."] she muttered back trying so hard not to show on how much the heartache hurt.

Silence soon fell between them and Vincent left, unlocked the door and showed himself out while Odette rested against the edge of the table, sighing - bringing both hands to her face as she looked down..

[+red "This isn't how it was all supposed to go.."] spoke the elderly gentleman who was draped in red satin, hands clasped in front of his body while a large gold chain with Odette's symbol hanging from his neck.
[b "Plans. They change.."] she spoke as her most trusted approached her with concerning eyes.
[+red "Is he broken? The most loyal?.."]
[b "I'd say fractured. He loves me, I can feel it; he just wont say it. I fear he loves Dominick too much"]
[+red "For a man to go behind his King's back to lay with the forbidden shows disloyalty. You say fractured, I say broken. This plan is working Odette..."]

Odette kept her eyes on Richelieu for a single moment before turning her head and wandered towards the french pain windows - looking out at the lit garden, seeing Vincent seated upon a marble seat under the moonlight still as a statue.

[+red "This coup is important. Overthrowing Dominick, you will reign France and Romania; two very powerful empires making you untouchable. You need to make sure Vincent is with and will stand by you."]
[b "I love him.."]
[+red "Then make sure he loves you in return. The wedding will happen, the overthrowing will too happen and you will be Queen with Vincent as King Consort, if you wish it so. Just...don't be foolish..."]

Odette continued to stare at Vincent through the window, loving him with every inch of her body and nodded at Richelieu's words.
[b "Only time will tell.."]

It took every strength she had not to approach Vincent and speak of love. A man so loyal to his King she would surely be rejected and it stopped her from being foolish as it was Vincent who wanted to end it all on this night.

Perhaps she would have to overthrow Dominick and Vincent, on her own.
StolenRelics-ғallen   83d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 As the male sat out in the moonlight, his mind wandered to Odette. What was it about her, that made him want to tell Dominick the truth? That he had taken Dominick's soon to be wife to his own bed. That he was falling head over heels in love with the woman. He'd been feeling that way ever since he first laid eyes on the woman. The first night she had arrived, he felt something there. Something stirring inside of himself, and yet he was scared to act upon it. The last couple of months spent with Odette was perfect.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 His fingers itched to dig into the woman's flesh, and drag her closer. He wanted to speak about what was on his mind, but what if she didn't feel the same way? What if he was just someone she took to bed, until Dominick arrived back home? There was so much swimming around in his mind, that he didn't notice one of the handmaids standing behind him, until she cleared her throat. [b "Is everything okay Master Vincent?"] she asked in her small mouse like voice. The male turned his head towards her and sighed.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "To be honest with you, everything is not alright. I'm feeling so many different things right now, that I don't know what to do. I have so many things swimming around in my head, that I can't think straight"] he admitted. The female walked over and took the spot beside him. She placed her hands into her lap, as she looked up at the moonlight. [b "If you'd like to speak about it, I will gladly listen. Something told me to come out here, and make sure you were okay"] she said softly, not looking towards him.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Vincent watched as the woman looked towards the sky and spoke. She was such an innocent woman, and he wondered why she was even here, working for Dominick in the first place. The demon took a breath, before finally speaking. [#D1B419 "I'm in love with someone I know I can't have.. I've had her the past couple of months, but the whole time I've felt guilty. I can't betray Dominick's trust, because I've been with him for years. But Odette.. She's done something to me.. She's made me feel things I never dreamed I would ever feel..."]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I feel alive whenever I'm around her. Just to have her gaze upon me, makes me weak. I feel like I can't breathe when I'm not around her. Tonight I broke things off, because Dominick will be coming home tomorrow, and the wedding will be in full swing as well. I just don't know what to do.. I feel like I'm breaking, and all I want is Odette's fingers on my skin, to taste her lips, to feel her over and over again.. I can't get her out of my head"] he said, his voice cracking.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The woman turned her gaze towards him and put her hand on his shoulder. [b "Go to her, tell her how you feel. You might not realize, but she might feel the same way. I've been watching the both of you, and I've seen the way she looks at you, the way she seems more alive when you are near. I see the same look on her face, that I've seen on my husbands when he looks at me. You are in love Master Vincent, and you shouldn't stop yourself from telling her"]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [b "I know Master Dominick will be home, but if he's as loyal, and trusting with you, then he would understand that you and Queen Odette are meant to be together. Go and tell her"] she said as she gave the male a small nudge. Vincent knew she was right, but what was stopping him? He didn't want to lose Dominick's trust, but yet he was willing to throw it all away for Odette. The woman was right, he had to tell her. He stood and looked down at her. [#D1B419 "Thank you Miranda"] he said softly, a smile on his face.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [b "No need to thank me. Everyone deserves a love that I've seen sparking between the two of you. Go"] she said nodding towards the castle. Vincent didn't need to be told twice. He hurried inside, and back into the grand show room, and spotted Odette there. His heart slammed against his chest as he walked into the room. [#D1B419 "My queen, can we speak?"] he asked her. He felt like a child again, and he didn't know where to start. Maybe he was a fool, but he was going to lay everything out in front of her. He just waited for her to speak.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   82d ago

There was something in the way Vincent held himself that enticed Odette to no end. His loyalty was questioned in her mind just slightly as he had constantly praised his love and forever wanting to obey Dominick when they first met and now, all of it was fractured with their affection for one another.

Richelieu's words bounced in her brain as her eyes continued to stare at Vincent outside, resting upon a marble seat by the garden of poison breeds.
Could he be trusted?
If Vincent swayed from his King, who se to say he would not do it to her?

Love was indeed fickle and yet, deep down inside the very pit of her stomach she knew that Vincent would never slip from her. Their actions in bed and their words proved that to be so.

Her most trusted approached her side and both stood by the large window and looked out. It was not long until a maiden wandered out and sat by Vincent and engaged in conversation.
This made the Queen of her own right lift an eyebrow and continued to watch carefully, especially when the Maiden's hand rested upon Vincent's shoulder.

Richelieu sighed and stepped back, turning and began to wander towards the door but not being speaking words that made Odette close her eyes.

[+red "You better hope that he loves you, Odette and both your actions were not of lust. Otherwise, we are all done for..."] Richelieu spoke, prompting Odette to shift her posture even more poignantly. There was no time for mistakes. No time for error.

Tomorrow Dominick would arrive and all would be back to normal. It had to be, but why did it feel so unbelievably wrong seeing it was the right thing to do.

Stepping from the window, Odette did the rounds of the great ballroom, staring at the pictures on the walls; touching the delicate filigree of gold of the frames before coming to the Throne.

Oh, it was beautiful.
Exceptional and it enticed Odette fully to where she stepped up the three singular steps and took a seat upon the cushion.
It was everything.

The power radiated.

Her time upon the throne was short lived the moment the large heavy double doors opened up and Vincent wandered back into her very own view.

[b "Vincent.."] Odette spoke as she removed herself from the Throne and stood up, trying to make it seem that she just needed to take a seat rather than the "plan".

[i "My Queen, can we speak?.."]

And speak on who that Maiden was, sure... she spoke to herself in her head before giving off a soft nod.

[b "I think we are past the whole, Queen naming. Just say my name, Vincent. What is it you wish to speak about?.."]
StolenRelics-ғallen   65d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Looking up Vincent loved the way she sat upon the throne, it suited her. Images of doing the unspeakable to the woman while she was in that throne passed through his mind, but he had to push it down. He shook his head slightly as she stood. He put his hands behind his back, and laced his fingers together. He was at a loss for words all of a sudden, and he didn't know what to say. She breathtaking, and he couldn't think for a moment. What was he supposed to say just then? He felt at a loss.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 When she said to speak her name, he paused a moment. [#D1B419 "Wouldn't that be out of turn though? Shouldn't I be calling you my queen, and not by your name? Isn't that what good right hand men do? I mean, I'm allowed to call Dominick by his name, because of how long I've been with him, but it's been months since you and I first met.. I'm not doing it to disrespect you, I just want to make sure I'm allowed to call you Odette in the presence of Dominick as well"] the male spoke softly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 His fingers were itching to grab her, push her back down into the throne, and place himself between her legs, to feel her, hear her, feel her nails against his back. The many nights they spent tangled in the bedsheets, on the tables, being wrapped around once another, was making him crumble. He didn't know how long he would be able to watch her with Dominick, knowing that she was going to bed with him, pleasing him, it made his blood boil. Odette was his, he had claimed her from the moment he laid eyes on her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He shook his head lightly as he looked down towards the floor. [#D1B419 "That's not what I wanted to speak about.. What I wanted to speak about are my feelings towards you.. I know it's impure to think of you as mine, when you are supposed to be wed to Dominick, if I had my way, I would steal you away, I would make sure Dominick wouldn't be able to wed you. Odette.. I'm in love with you... I know I shouldn't be, but I am"] he said the last words in a rush of emotion.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He unlaced his fingers, and moved his hands from behind his back, and closed the gap between them. He couldn't hold back any more. His lips fell upon her's, his fingers digging slightly into her arms. When he pulled back, his breathing was slightly heaver than normal. [#D1B419 "I don't want you to marry Dominick, I don't want you going to bed with him every night. You belong in [i my] bed, you belong to [i me], and I don't know what to do. I can't betray my longest friend, but I can't betray my feelings either."]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Ever since I laid eyes on you, I knew I had to have you, when I had you that first night, I knew.. I knew then and there, that you and I were meant to cross paths, you were meant to come here, not to be with Dominick, but to be with me. I don't know if it's just me feeling this way, or if you do as well. I can't.. I don't know what to do.."] he breathed out. He finally fell silent, his hands stroking her arms slowly, his eyes searching her face.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Say something.. Anything.. The silence, I hate it.."] he whispered softly. He then fell silent, as he waited for the woman to speak.]]
MeisjeKellyOdette -   15d ago

The throne against the backside of her body, felt right.
It was as if the missing piece of the puzzle was finally making itself at home against her as it was the perfect fit and one longed for.

No one in their right mind would ever disregard the feeling and Odette was not about too; and yet when Vincent entered the room, she quickly got up and played it off to avoid suspicion. The last thing she needed was to reveal her true intentions of a hostile take over to the man whose loyalty ran with the prey.

[b "In all fairness I rather you call me my name considering how ....invested we have been to one another."]
[+red "I just want to make sure I'm allowed to call you Odette in the presence of Dominick as well"]
[b "I don't think that would be wise in front of Dominick, but when we are alone, I do not see the problem..."] she spoke, stepping down from the marble steps and onto the grand floor of the throne room.
Staring at the man she loved with her cold, lifeless heart; all she wanted was to jump into hi arms - wrap legs around his waist and show him how much her love meant.
To kiss him, to feel him, to caress his skin under the clothes that she wanted so desperately off and on the floor.

Vincent however made his intentions clear.
No more tomfoolery.

No more expressions of admiration and lust.
Within a few short hours, she would be in Dominick's grasp yet again and all of this within the last few weeks would be nothing but a memory.

Odette shifted towards Vincent within closing distance and remained poised and well structured like a Queen.
Her hands were kept to herself although she could feel the urge to touch but stayed still.
He was ever so beautiful and it pained her on the inside to cease all of it.

She loved him.

[+red "That's not what I wanted to speak about. What I wanted to speak about are my feelings towards you."]
[b "Oh?..."]
[+red "I know it's impure to think of you as mine, when you are supposed to be wed to Dominick."]
[b "Very impure. Something you shouldn't be doing.."]
[+red "Odette.. I'm in love with you... I know I shouldn't be, but I am.."]

Odette raised her eyebrow.

It was something she honestly did not expect and his words took her breath away. It was all words she did not expect but felt herself screaming like a teenage girl on the inside.

[b "Vincent.."]
[+red "I don't want you to marry Dominick, I don't want you going to bed with him every night. You belong in my bed, you belong to me, and I don't know what to do. I can't betray my longest friend, but I can't betray my feelings either."]

Odette bit her lower lip the moment Vincent's hand rested upon her arm and fingertips gently caressed her skin.He was killing her....well, if she was still alive...

Silence fell between them.
All she could think about was hearing her right had Advisor telling her to make sure Vincent loved her enough.

He did, as it would seem.

Covering her mouth, Odette turned her head and her body and sighed, walking away slowly.

[b "My entire reign I have been companion-less. Looking after my coven, my country have overwhelmed my need for love so I have pushed all of my energy and time into obtaining counties - provenances - countries to build my army. To be powerful and one not to be messed with.."] she spoke, stopping and turned around slowly - staring at Vincent once again.

[b "I must confess, marrying Dominick is not at all for love. Yes, it is to join our people but the main truth of it all is ......well...its....a coup. You at all were not in my plans but we are..."]

Odette felt and looked defeated and yet she felt like a weight was lifted.

[b "I love you. All of me, loves you. Loyalty I know you have for Dominick but I cannot keep this from you any longer. I love you, so very much but I will overthrow Dominick. The throne will be mine whether I marry him or not. I want you by my side Vincent, to help me take the Kingdom and its people for me to be there sole Queen and Duke. General, my consort, what ever you wish to be..."]

[b "I am yours..."]
