“Lie down.” He ordered and Lora sat down on the bed and looked at what was coming out of the black bag.
“On your stomach,” Lucas said. He was holding a bottle and tilting the contents of the bottle into his cupped hand.
Lora lay down on her stomach and while Lucas applied the liquid where the marks of the stays reddened the flesh.
“Ow,” Lora cried. “It stings!”
“This is an astringent, the first thing is to restore circulation,” Lucas explained as he rubbed Lora’s back and buttocks and thighs.
Lora was squirming and her flesh cringing with each application. She buried her face in the pillow to smother her cries.
“I know, I know,” Lucas said. “This will hurt a little as well as it will help.”
Under Lucas’s vigorous Lora’s flesh seemed to spring into its fullest conformations. She was shivering now and her buttocks were clenched against the invigorating chill of the astringent.
Her legs squeezed together. Lucas now took from the bag a bottle of massage oil and began to knead Lora’s neck, shoulders and back, her thighs and calves and the soles of her feet.
Gradually she relaxed and her flesh shook and quivered under the emphatic skill of Luca’s hands.
Lucas rubbed the oil into her skin until her body found its own natural rosy white being and began to stir with self-perception.
“Turn over,” He commanded.
Lora’s hair was now undone and lay on the pillow about her face. Her eyes were closed and her lips stretched in an involuntary smile as Lucas massaged her breasts, her stomach and her legs.
“Yes, even this,” he said, briskly passing his hand over the mons. “You must have the courage to live.” The morning sun penetrated into the room.
Lora put her own hands on her breasts and her palms rotated the nipples. Her hands swam down along her flanks.
After he was done, he knobbed the bottle returning it back into the small bag. He helped her sit on the bed as he sat beside her.
“How do you feel?” He asked her.
She offered a weak nod. “A little better, I guess.”
“I’m sorry.” His voice was calm. ” I never meant to hurt you. ”
He definitely didn’t hurt her, besides, she had always wanted it… She had always wanted to be his, to be claimed.
She shook, ” it’s nothing.”
He helped her with her clothes, she managed to get to her feet as the dress freely fell on her.
Even though the marks were still new, she seems not to be feeling it’s pains anymore.
She’s got only few hours to leave the palace to the witches castle.
Few hours to go..
She took most of her time with Elena and Diana, lucky her, she wasn’t gonna miss Melina too. After all, they were both leaving together.
She knew in one year time, she won’t get the chance to see Diana again. And if there’s any chance of being with her, it’s now.
This time it was all spent at the garden. With the three of them, they offered themselves as much moment they can ever give.
“How does it feels like being in the witche’s cast? ” Asked Lora.
” It’s feels like home.” Elena answered. ” Don’t worry, soon you’ll get to love the castle.”
” Nyk once told me that they’re a lot of other witches in there. ” Diana added.
” With powers like me? ” She asked again. ” And dreams?”
“No,” said Diana. ” Magic differs likewise the way it unleash’s to people. Everyone has there own way of how they got there gift. Please tell me you aren’t scared. ”
” No, just a little bit nervous. ”
” It’s alright. Just like Elena had said, you’ll get to like the castle soon. ” She assured her with a smile.
That afternoon, two black Limos were packed outside the palace. Some maids were helping Melina in packing Lora’s bag into the car.
Lucas stood outside with some guards and maids as they awaited his wife and mother’s presence, and as they both showed up, Lora went to him.
He held her both hands, ” Everything is gonna be alright, okay?”
She nodded. ” I know. I’ve got mother with me, you don’t have to worry about me. ”
He kissed her so deep and passionately like that was gonna be their last moment. He rested his forehead on hers, ” Take care of yourself for me.”
“You too.” She said and they kissed again before he let her go.
He turned his gaze to his mother, “If anyone lays a finger on her, I swear mother, I’m gonna kill every single witches in that castle. ” He threatened.
” I won’t let any harm get to her, I give you my word.” She could see the seriousness in his voice as he spoke that.
The vehicle took off as soon as they entered.
The journey was a two hours one, Lora’s heart kept beating against her chest.
What do you expect from her?
She wasn’t sure how cool the other witches were compared to Nyk’s.
Were they really going to understand her and the powers she possess?
Would there be a soul as calm as Nyk?
How does the castle look like?
And all this clouded her mind, that she didn’t know when they got to the castle.
One part of her thoughts was satisfied, the castle really is like home!
They had passed through a golden gate, but that part, she seemed not to have noticed it until she turned to look at it.
“Wow!” The word almost escaped her mouth.
“Welcome to the witches castle.” Nyk introduced. ” Come on in, my sisters will be waiting. ”
‘Sisters?’ she thought. What sisters is she talking about?
She analyzed every part of the castle, it was beyond unspeakable beauty, with a permanent symbol they had used in decorating the whole places.
“It’s beautiful, isn’t it?” Nyk’s voice caught her.
She nodded with her mouth opened.
She has always believed in witch-tale Stories that their castle was always old, dark, covered with curb-webs. But with this, not all folktales are real.
“Sisters we’ve returned.” Nyk reported as the walked into the sacred chamber.
” What kept you so long? We thought you wouldn’t come as instructed.” One of them said.
” Forgive me. Here, ” she pointed at Lora.” Sisters, this is Lora. And Lora, meet my sisters; Morgana, Eva, Melissa, Gwen, and Ellen.”
As she introduced, each one of them, they gave a sign for Lora to easily recognize them.
Lora bowed at them letting them smile brightly at her.
” Welcome home, Lora. ” They chorused.
“Thank you.” She replied with another bow.
“Have you told her the rules?” Another asked.
“Not yet, I’ll do that when she recovers from the journey. ”
” That’s a good idea. ” Said the third voice.
” Why don’t I show Lora to her room?” She said and they left.
As she slept, the dream came again. It’s always the same version but nothing good seems to be it’s ending.
If she was the demon’s only hope, why isn’t there something good happening?
Why does Lucas have to die in all of them?
She can’t believe she’s their hope if this keeps happening…
She woke up, gasping heavily like she has lost her air. She thought coming to the castle was going to help, especially erasing the dreams from her head.
But no, it appeared instead.
She buried her face in her palms, her breath getting steady each second and she doesn’t want to go back to sleep. Those dreams will only appear if she does go back.
And she wasn’t ready to have it again…
She left her room to Nyk’s. She offered a knock on the door.
“Come in.” Nyk’s voice sounded from the other side.
She gently pulled the door knob down, stepping in, then she shut it behind her.
“I… I uhmm… I’m sorry for disturbing you.” She apologized.
” It’s okay. Is there any problem?” She asked.
” I guess so. ”
” Come here. Sit with me. ” She adjusted for Lora to sit beside her. ” Something is troubling you, Lora. Tell me, what is it that troubles you?”
She first took a deep breath. ” I had this dream, ” she began. ” Not once, not twice not three times either. I’ve had it a lot of times and even now. ”
” Okay, I’m listening. ”
” There was a war, a very great war between the hunters and the demons and no one survived it, not even Lucas. ” Tears made it’s way down to her cheek. She sniffed, sighing heavily. ” It keeps appearing to me, every night. I want it to go, I just want it to leave but it won’t. It won’t so it keeps appearing instead. I’m scared mother, I’m scared. ”
She fell in Nyk’s arm weeping deeply. She couldn’t take it anymore, she couldn’t.
Nyk kept tapping her back like a child assuring her that everything was gonna be okay even if it was difficult to change it.
“Those aren’t just dreams, it’s the future.” Lora broke free from the hug, staring at her.
” What future? ” She asked.
” Remember when I first arrived at the fortress?”
“When I told you everything were all programmed by fate?”
She nodded again…
” It’s exactly what is happening. The demons are losing the war is because you haven’t understood your powers. When you come to understand, learn and control those powers, they’ll be every chances of us winning the war. ”
” But how? How am I gonna do all this? ”
” You have to start accepting your gift. Give it a chance to understand you too. ”
” There is this figure clothed on red that always appear in my dreams. I don’t know, I’ve never seen who it is but it always comes. ”
” Does this figure stand behind Lucas? ” Nyk asked curiously.
” Yes. How do you know? ”
” I didn’t. ” She replied.
” So, do you know who this person might be? ”
” There’s only one person and that’s the only one who can help Lucas save the world. ” She paused for awhile then Continued. ” The figure on red… Is You…”
