Secrets

valis-casual“Did he really just recall away?”, she questioned herself after her meeting with her ‘Uncle’. All she had asked was for him to tell her of her Father. She had every right to know and after everything she had given up for him during their time together, it was one of the few things he could give her.

Brelynn called upon Pandryl to come to her and within seconds he was by her side. She climbed up on him as she would do any normal time and held on tightly as they soared towards the sky together. Slowly, doing as they had practiced at lower heights, Brelynn slid back and stood while balancing on the mighty dragon’s back. She looked towards the heavens in a mighty thank you and smiled brightly as she slid back into a seated position. Pandryl landed them both safely in their favorite camping spot to where she built a campfire and took a bath in the nearby water, illuminated only by that of the moon. She had no true worries of someone daring to cause her harm with her protector so close.

Starry Nights

brelynn-pandrylAutumn was her absolutely favorite time of the year, the leaves would begin to fall and the hot summer days were beginning to fade as the air grew cooler. Absolutely nothing beat curled up against her dragon’s side, enjoying a fresh cold ale and looking up at the stars. She was in Heaven for the most part, except she couldn’t help but miss her family. She fought it for so long, the anger had almost faded away, and soon it would be time to make her peace within her family. Her mind fluttered momentarily to her ex-lover and fiance`, to which she toasted the night air and took another drink of her ale.

It’s funny how time could make a person recall things in a different perspective. After all, there was a time she would have given her life for the chance to live eternally with him. And then there was the time that anger and resentment made her again want to rip out the very part of her who made her who she was. She was not quite mortal and not quite a vampire, yet she was something else. She was not beneath either, she was unique, something much better than either of the two. She could live both among the mortals and the vampire world without batting an eye. She was in fact, the best of both worlds combined into one.

Brelynn finished her ale while talking aloud to Pandryl, “What do you say ol’buddy? Is it time to make a visit home?”. The greater dragon, seemingly understanding her, gently nudged her with his nose before curling his wings around her a bit tighter. She smiled as she snuggled in, knowing he was always going to be there to protect her.

Prism

pandoras_wedding_ringsI walked into the emptiness of Romanus Manor.  Cherry had gone back to where she belonged, with her husband.  I felt the chill of the air that runs through the whole house more so than ever before. I miss him. With every fiber of my being, with every pore of my preternatural flawless skin, I look at my hands… my left ring finger that adorns several stacks of rings, all with such different meanings and capturing such memories for me.  One in particular… an eternal band of small round diamonds… stands out for me.  It was the ring he gave me when we adopted our daughters, Saralyn and Brelynn.  Oh how I miss them.  They humanized me in a way that no other had ever before, or after.  I became a mother.  My heart opened and embraced the very many facets of this prism of life because of my girls.  Marius said to me when he gave me this ring…

“No other love will ever be like my own as the love of our twins… and the love of the many more we will have for eternity blesses us with this joy a thousand times over.”
