The Tribunal of Marius de Romanus, Pt. 12

cherry-seated-sexyI saw the desperation in his eyes, I knew he needed me.  I couldn’t say no.  I stood up and quietly followed him out the side door.  We walked for what seemed like forever, ducking into the nooks and crannies of the underground lair. Then finally he turned around where he felt comfortable.  I crossed my arms, leaned on the wall and began to speak… but he stopped me.  The touch of his finger on my lips lit the fire in me like no other man could ever do.  Not even for Lucius, my favorite progeny, did I ever feel this for.  “No. Let me say what I need to say first,” he continued, “and then you can scream, hit , yell or do whatever you want to me.” he said. What came next was a flood of confessions and apologies for which the sincerity couldn’t be faked.  He spoke of love, like he really knew what that word meant.  I almost believed him. I listened to all of it until he turned to me pleading for a response. 

I pushed off the wall placing my hands on my hips, “There is to never, ever be another outsider. Va’lis I’m serious. If you love me like you say you do, then keep this solemn vow. I shall never deny your progeny and you cannot deny me mine, but outside of that… nada, zip, zero, zilch. Otherwise everything you’ve said to me today is just empty words.” I had to keep it together if I was going to be taken seriously.

Va’lis then shocked me by kneeling down and wrapping his arms around my waist. The shear notion of it made me weak. I wrapped my arms over his shoulders. I cannot help it. I love this man. Love him enough to bare him a child of our own. Of course that would have to wait.

“Va’lis I need you home. Every night. In our bed. And I need you to make an effort to get to know my childes. Especially since I’ve been chosen again. I cannot put that off any longer it—-“, Va’lis cut me off, “All I can do is try.” I sighed. “Quit trying and just do it,” I said.

I fell to my knees and looked in his eyes, “Tell me you will do it.”  I waited.
