Shadow of The Knight
Part I: Chapter III
The funny thing about Knight's blood is that it doesn't really work right away. It has a delay. And this – well this was it's delay. My eyes went black for a split second, his mouth still on mine, and my body went numb. I fell on the ground and I still had a sinking sensation, and for a few seconds it felt like I was knocked out. But then an amazing thing happened – my eyes opened and I was fine. Perfectly fine. Better then fine, actually.
"Are you okay?" Shadow asked me, sounding genuinely concerned for me. He was next to me, kneeling on the ground and looking at my face worriedly.
"I feel wonderful!" I exclaimed, I tried to jump up but he pushed me back to the ground.
"Just hold still, the blood might not have finished it's effects." He put one arm over me so he could look down at me, and then he put his leg over me. "This is destiny." A few hours ago I was reading a romance book at the local cafe, drinking a mocha wondering who would ever want me in such a carnal fashion. And then this.
Maybe he was right and this was destiny? Or maybe it was all bullshit and he was using me for something. But what would he use me for? I'm actually human. I've got no super talents, no secret swords, or expensive blood. I'm normal. So what's in it for him?
"Nothing," he said. "Nothing is in it for me. Well, except for you." And he leaned in for a kiss. Stupid jerk got into my head again – he really needed to stop. "Sorry," he said and kissed me again.
"Why are you doing this?" I asked him when he finally pulled away.
"I like you. I thought you were insanely beautiful the moment I saw you. And you looked nice as well." Wait. What the hell? He can see my...personality...or whatever? "Yes."
"Okay that's just creepy. Seriously. What if I pass out again?"
"I doubt that will happen unless I try to take control of your mind again."
"Oh well, that's comforting," I told him.
"It should be!" He got up off of me and offered his hand, I took it and he pulled me to my feet and he let my body slam right into his. He kissed me again, tenderly and I hugged him closer to me. I didn't ever want him to go. I didn't care how fast our relationship was going.
I wanted him inside of me. Badly. I felt him snicker and I wanted to slap him, but that would require me breaking the kiss, and I didn't really want to do that. But then I started to feel feint, so I broke it anyways. He was panting when I pulled away, and he looked into my eyes and caressed my face. "That can easily be remedied. But first, I'd like to ask you something." Yes, I'll marry you. He laughed and then said (in all seriousness), "Go on a quest with me."
Quest is such a lame word. "Uh...a quest for what?"
He sighed, "A quest to get you magic." I froze. Wait – what? How do I get magic? Do I steal it or something? "That's exactly what you do."
"Uh...and so how am I supposed to steal magic?"
"Well we find someone and stab their heart with a special crystal. And the crystal takes the magic. Then you wear it at all times and you've got magic."
"So – someone has to die so I can become like you and we can run off and live happily ever after? Am I not good enough for you and you want me to be, but hey if I DON'T HAVE magic, and CAN'T GET magic maybe you'll just ditch me somewhere. I don't know you – what made me think this was a good idea in the first place?"
"You didn't think it was a good idea – you were bored and thought, 'what the hell'." I stared at him. And shook off the feeling that he had been watching me for a long time. "Look this wasn't how it was supposed to go-"
"And how was it supposed to go?" Was he pretending to be a bad mind controller and that's what he'd been doing.
Oh god – did he make me kiss him? Did he make me collapse? Could he do that sort of thing?
Shadow's face turned dark, "how could you think that?" He asked me. "Everything you've just done has been out of your own influence."
Yeah, of course. He wouldn't do that to me. He was a beautiful person with a beautiful soul. I smiled at him, "I don't know what I was thinking."
"So are we going to go kill someone or not?" I asked him. He gave me a huge smile. "I can't wait for my own magical powers."
"That's the spirit." He gave me a kiss on my mouth and handed me a beautiful thin silver chain with a clasp at the end. And on the clasp was a shimmering clear crystal that almost blinded me. He turned me around and put it around my neck.
"It's beautiful, thank you," I said to him, and tucked it under my shirt. Which is when he looked me up and down.
"Oh Mathias – what are we going to do about this?"
"You're horrible taste in clothes."
"I don't have a horrible taste in clothes-"
"Yes, you do. Here." He handed me a pile of ugly red clothes and told me to strip down and put them on. Somehow he felt I couldn't do it myself ("I feel you're incapable and I think I'll help you take your clothes off." "Uh...okay.") and he unbuttoned my jeans and pulled them down and he also helped me put on the ugly red jumpsuit, and the second I put it on, it changed. Into something similar to what he was wearing. "Much better," he stated.
I looked down at my clothes, and sighed. They certainly were...interesting. "Leather, a nice touch. You don't think it's too kinky?" I asked.
"No, it's perfect." He said.
I smiled. "Lets get me some wizard blood."
