When did we allow evil
TO BECOME STRONGER THAN US?


Eros had seen it all, being a commander in the army at the time of war. All those bloody battles, he’d lost so many soldiers that were under his leadership. He’d fought so hard for what he was worth, for what the country he was fighting for was worth. Now his life was quiet, easy as he guarded the borders. It was more trailing down his daily path, which was a deserted one. But even though it was a calm job he enjoyed it for the time being. Away from his family and all its drama’s and just alone with himself. Owning a small cabin in the mountains and heaving his stallion steady with him every day of the year. At least that was steady now, his life and all that came with that. But now, this lady had showed up in his life, stirring up way too much. Stirring up so much he couldn’t understand why she did so, even now that he had accepted he cared for her, more than he first thought so. Now everything was unsure, because that steady life, alone in his cabin in the mountains was turning grey instead of the calm safe haven it always had been. That was not only because of the lady and his desires that came along, but also because her family had scarred her, from the moment she was born. He didn’t know the Medici family for all that much. The man had left being still a boy when things escalated in D’auvignon. Leaving the residence they had after his aunt got killed in what seemed like the battle between the brothers. Ofcourse he knew all the stories, and also knew the stories that were brought by only the name “Medici”. It made him happy that he wasn’t carrying the name for himself.

This lady, on the contrary, did. Eros could almost see the burdens that laid on top of her slender shoulders, and could figure the other Medici girl -his niece- had the same ones. Knowing that he felt sorry for all the royals that didn’t chose to be, being bonded by blood didn’t make it easier to give up a position. Let alone the force coming from the family itself to keep a rule within its line. When her soft voice reached his ears again he listened the same way he was doing already, with the greatest care and attention. Her answer told him that his slightly careless question wasn’t making her uncomfortable, which gave him some rest. ’That does seem like something positive.’ The man carefully said, not wanting to hurt her feelings. He could understand that even though she could hate the man, it still was her father. “He will be a sheep that is chased by dogs. A wounded a vulnerable lamb And in time, all foul things he has done come forth. and he will pay for it. “ Slowly he let her words pass through his mind once. ’But he is a wounded vulnerable lamb that is very dangerous, if I believe so.’ Answering, his voice more worrying. ’I mean, if I understand your words correctly. And, with that I’ve heard plenty of rumors of the man.’ Suggesting after, stroking her arm with his thumb soft and slowly. He kept his contact still as it was, knowing it wasn’t too much for the lady. He felt the warmth of her hand run through his, as it laid under her slender fingers.

The next words he spoke, coming from his heart irradiated further on with her response. It were risky words, words he didn’t want to say to anyone before he’d met the lady. He knew those were trouble if he wasn’t careful enough. For many it was a sign they could use him, maybe his battle experience, maybe the good of his hearth. He had been there, he had done that and he certainly hadn’t become better out of it. He did became wiser, knowing that those words required a trust coming from quite a level. And that trust was apparently there for the red haired lady. Her words made the corners of his mouth curl up, feeling the same trust towards him. ’I’m sure there are is are a lot more people around that want to get rid of him.’ He said calculated whilst thinking about it. ’And you must know the same goes for you.’ Eros paused for a second, his emerald green eyes resting on the wild strands of red hair coming from the lady. ’And there has been so much happening to you already, so I’ve got something to catch up.’ The man watched how she turned around in his loose hold. Rearranging his hand towards her other arm and gazing directly into her red orbs. Being completely out of words he just stood there, watching how those eyes scanned around his face. Feeling how the same warmth radiated through his clothes to the skin on his shoulder.

When Rha mentioned that she didn’t want him to sacrifice himself he just smiled a little broader. ’I can’t promise that, m’lady.’ He simply said, almost teasing her. ’Because if I did, I would lie to you, and I don’t want to do that.’ The man explained after, being able to pull his eyes away from her beautiful ones and now tracing the features of her face. Her next words, on the other hand, let the smile currently present on his face fade away. He could only agree with the words she had just said, and heard the words she said after. ’It seems like that’s the curse royals have.’ He started, the tone in his voice turning a little more bitter. ’But there is something with the Medici-line that enlarges it, I’ve seen it with my niece.’ Eros said after, openly as he was. ’You are stronger though, and if that is proven different by any reason I’ll be there to strengthen until you are.’

Rhaella Medici
She wears strength and darkness equally well
She loved the warm feelings that he gave her. She loved how he made her feel like she could handle the whole world with just the two of them. Maybe it was too much that was going on right now and that her feelings where pretty messed up right now. But if there was one thing that she could be sure of it where her feelings for the man in front of her. A man she barely knew a few months ago but that she grows more fond of everyday. The hand that was carefully placed on his shoulder stroke the fabric of his clothing and she finally let it rest on his chest.

Almost everyone I know wants to get rid of him. she bits her lips and bashes her eyes back onto his green ones. Even my uncle, “perhaps” would rather see him more dead than alive. She didn’t knew that in full confidence. But she did knew what her father had done to him personally. So perhaps that would be a reason why Thriumph wanted to get rid of his brother. And it would also be a lot easier to wipe him out with a king standing behind you. Though she doubted whether or not her uncle would help her. He had it’s own duties towards the country. But maybe if she could prove any threats against he crown done by her father it would be easier to persuade him. Her thoughts went on as Eros started to point out that he had to catch up on some things. And she smiles softly. Her slender fingers found his cheek and she let them stroke over his skin for a short moment. You don’t owe me anything Eros. her words where a mere whisper as her eyes got locked up into his. How I wished we would have been born in different worlds she sighed Things would be so much easier then. And they would. Rhaella hated it that she was dragging the man in front of her down in her own drama. She wanted to ride their horses, together. Feed the animals, catch fireflies under the starry moonlight and ly down in the cold grass watching every star pass by. Maybe this was not yet what she had dreamed of and how it would be. But at least their bond was getting stronger?

Her sweet little thoughts about how she imagined their time together was wiped away by another sea of words from the man. And her eyes got watery by the thought alone of losing another loved one. And as she pointed out that he should not sacrifice his life to help her his smile got a little broader. She tilted and shook her head a bit as her red eyes where shut down. The red curls falling down over her shoulders again. Her hands grasped the fabric of his clothes and she pushes her body against his. Then lie to me, please. At least I would have the feeling that someone is listening to me..  I don’t want anyone I care for to be hurt ever again. Her eyes turned bigger as she had spoken the words. How hard was it to just follow her wishes. Perhaps they both where too stubborn for what was good for one another.

A moment of silence overtook the two of them and she could only hear the crackling sound of the branches that where brushed against the house for a few times. The grip around his clothing loosened a bit and she felt more relaxed already. She opened her hands and let them both rest on his chest for a while. As he comforted her with his words again. Something he was and still is very good at. His warm but confronting words made her blood feel less boiling and her eyes drifted away, resting on the small living room for a few seconds as she figured out how to answer his words. Her eyes found the small hedgehog she was taking care for and the little lizard in it’s tank. It was partly also for them why she wanted to get rid of her father. For he had burned down their lands also. People would forget that often, that animals had perhaps the same rights as humans does. And as soon as she found the right words her red eyes where placed into his green orbs again. I don’t think I am any stronger. I don’t think I ever will be. But together…”

TO BECOME STRONGER THAN US?


The warmth in the room was getting present. The fire gave to the room, slowly building it up until there was a cozy temperature in the house. Eros could feel his cheeks glow, as he had been outside the whole day before he had stopped by at Rhaella her place. And now as he held her within her arms he could feel the temperature rise up even more. Carefully wrapping her into his arms as the man tried to comfort her in a situation that made it almost impossible to do so. Every time her slender fingers found their way on his clothes, he could feel the warmth run straight through the fabric. As she spoke again he listened just like he had been the entire night. Making him think for a moment before he reacted to it. ’He has way more enemies than friends, which makes me wonder how he survives anyways.’ Letting the thoughts of his mind speak he heard the next words of the lady in front of him. ’Hmm, I do not know king Thriumph that well.’ He started to answer while his eyes found the window. Gazing off for a few seconds. ’But I do know king Lareth, and I’m sure he would want to help me.’ The green orbs slid back into the red ones, frowning.

The same fingers reached towards his cheeks, making the millions of neurons fired at the same time. It made his arm stroke up until it stopped at her shoulder, softly laying it on top. ’At least I’m going to make sure that I won’t you anything from now on then.’ He said, the little smile curling around his lips as his fingers trailed along her collarbone. Even though her words were so softly spoken, his ears had picked them up. Making sure the words wouldn’t be unanswered. ’Things would be different, easier. But we do live in these now, and it can make things more intense.’ The blonde man paused for a second . ’How would we’ve met if things would be different?’ His smile grew wider, the green eyes falling to his fingers for a moment as they encountered a piece of hair.

Fidgeting with the little red strand of hair he could feel her pulling herself against him. The strand of hair overruling with the wild curls the lady had. As she looked up again the man grabbed a piece again, carefully folding it behind her ear. ’You deserve only the truth,’ Gazing into the red eyes Rha had he chuckled for a moment. ’how could I even lie to those piercing, beautiful  red eyes of yours?’ After his words faded away the silence let him glare off in the window again. The pleased smile still around his lips, feeling the contact she had with him. He could feel her calm down as the minutes went down, slowly moving his body back and forth. As she focused her gaze, he followed it to find the animals. All so safe and sound in the little cabbin. ’I’m sure you’re stronger than your father, and you’re so good it’s precious.’ Her last words made him look up towards Rhaella. ’Together we will overcome.’

Rhaella Medici
She wears strength and darkness equally well
It was so exhausting that there where so many things going on at once. Her family became so messed up and she wished that some things would have gone different. Or at least that people saw what things they had done wrong. But that was not the cause. Her father would never see how he had messed up their relationship, how he was the cause of her mothers death and how he had challenged his brother into all of this. On the other hand. Her uncle also wasn’t an angel and had done enough terrible things to walk on the same distressed path as her father. She smiles watery and shook her head slowly. How come that those two men where so different then their own children. Faylice was modest, kind, has a good heart and has a lot of common sense. And she could almost say the same about herself. So where did it go wrong?

Rhaella could feel the soft warm wind the fireplace brought stroke against her pale cheekbones. And it had comforted her in a certain way. But not as good as Eros could comfort her, keep her safe and make her feel at ease. But those small moments of comfort seem to drift away as fast as they came as he started talking about her father again. He is smart. And that is in his advantage she simply replies to his words. He can easily outsmart any man. The man was clever enough to get an escape ready when he had burned half the forest down. So it would not surprise her if he had other escape plans as well. Somehow he always found a way to survive.

As Eros pointed out that he did not knew Thriumph all too well she tilts her head a little. Perhaps it was time to pay her uncle another visit. She had not seen him in a while so a nice chat would clear some things. And maybe if they where lucky he was able to help her achieve her goal.

He pointed out that he knew the King of Valyria and the he for sure was willing to help. And she could not deny it to feel a little insecure for ’inviting’ another king to their little plan. But on the other hand they could use any help they could get. So asking another king would only work in their advantage. If you could convince The king of Valyria to work together then perhaps we have another back up plan. She finally knows to bring out with a little ease in her voice. The man might be smart, and was able to escape from their grip for many times. But this time would be different. This time she would not be a small campfire. No, this time she would be as deadly as wildfire. And together they would be inevitable.

Her slender fingers where lifted up as she let them trail along his cheek and her red eyes where shut down from his green orbs towards the rest of his face. She stroke softly over the hair on his face after which she sagged and began to discover his neck. And at that moment, the world could perish. Her heart held up the feeling, which had so overwhelmingly overwhelmed her, believing that it could last forever. That she could be lost in the moment. Rhaella moved her other hand up and they both found the fabric on his chest  where she played them to rest for a while. Some things where definitely not as she had imagined. She craved for these little moments with him. And while she was away to clean up the mess her father had made she had missed them. But all the conflicting emotions it took to get here was gnawing on her.

He comforted her, over an over. And as his hand found her shoulder and finally her collarbone his touch caused a stir in her body. which first started very subtile but became more heavy as he let his fingers trail along her collarbone. A shiver ran over her spine and she could feel all the little hairs on her body stand up. ’How would we’ve met if things would be different?’ he askes her as he showed her a smile she could drown in again. His green eyes drifted away from hers for a moment and fount a piece of her hair. Or at least it felt like that. And perhaps he was right. Perhaps they would not found each other in another world. But if they did. This would probably much more easier. She tilts her head up again only to find his green orbs. I would have found you nonetheless she murmurs as an answer to his words. The storm of different emotions, which had been lying down for a while, rose again in its full intensity. It does not matter in what world or in what version of reality. I would have found you.

As she found some rest in her head and body again her breath got a little more steady. And as she leaned closer towards him she felt how he found another piece of hair which he folded behind her ear. His voice lit up the room against with a warm and comfortable sound and she could almost feel how her cheeks turned a little more red. Thank you was the only thing she could bring out right now. In a soft and almost un hearable tone. Luckily for her his green orbs trailed off her face onto the window again and she could relax a bit. She did not knew how but in one way or another he always managed to hit the right chord. She bit her lip slowly as the pressure on his clothes was released and her hands found his back where she let them rest for a while. Perhaps it was time for a little more ‘airy’ subjects. For her head started to feel a little dizzy.

TO BECOME STRONGER THAN US?


The emerald green eyes of the man gazed at the lady. Observing how fragile and yet strong she looked. Her pale skin that wrapped around the symmetrical features her face had. The good she reflected out of her fiery red eyes, the kind soul she had. Making him wonder if there would be the same traits somewhere in them that would connect her with her father. He couldn’t believe such a kind creature came from such a monster. It made him wonder if his niece had that same kindness, even though if he heard something about her it never was something bad. Wondering what kind of “damage” they took with them. His face pulled itself in a frown, as he thought about that. Somewhere there had to be something wrong, maybe it was her insecurity, her nervousness she took with her. It angered Eros in a way, feeling how helpless he was in the whole thing. At least the past, now the future was getting there and he would make sure he would do everything he could to protect that precious lady.

The subject changed itself towards her father, seeing how that little bit of nerves ran back through the lady in front of him. ’I can imagine.’ He stated as simply as the lady had done. It was true, Aeron was maybe the most wanted man that walked in Navarre. Having more enemies than people who didn’t know him it seemed. Leaving a trail of destruction and hate as he went on, and he still was alive. ’Then we need to play it out in such a way he can’t outsmart,’ His voice got stronger as he laid the convincing words in her ear. His gaze shifting towards the fire that warmed up the room and made his cheeks glow. ’So that it doesn’t even comes down in outsmarting or not.’ Surely there were ways to do that. It just took a little more careful planning. A bigger plan altogether maybe. He  stared at the softly crackling fire that flared up, feeding from the pieces of wood that were laid down previously.

That bigger plan needed more help than just the two of them against him. Thinking, even though Eros wasn’t a weak man, the man would shred him just because he had something with his daughter. A little area of protection he’d rather stay out. But a king would certainly be able to help if needed. If a king would want to. Luckily his actions in that battle a couple of years ago placed the blonde man in somewhat a position where he had leverage. ’Then I will, or at least try my best to get it that way. He could do a whole lot for us, especially since he is a certain danger for everybody.’ He pulled his lips into a smile after he saw Rha relax a little bit.

Feeling the soft touch she gave him made a million electric sparks fire from his skin to the rest of his body. Slowly as they trailed his cheek he put his on her upper arm. Working up towards her slender shoulders as he enjoyed the little peaceful moment. The green eyes landed on that exact same spot he was scouring with his hands, following the contours her body had. It was such a small moment, as they both discovered a little piece of skin on each other. Still it was so precious, so small yet so pleasurable. His fingers traced further, resting on her other shoulder without putting weight behind it. He could feel her hands move towards his chest, fiddling with the fabric as he did the same but then on her shoulder. Only to move further, over that line where her dressed stopped and her bare skin begun. She was radiating underneath, making him almost too addicted to realise the pressure on her skin, following the contours, the shapes of her collarbone. For a moment they stayed there, safely in place as he gazed towards the outside again.

“I would have found you nonetheless” The kind, soft words were barely hearable, still it made Eros turn his head back towards the lady again. Looking, drowning straight into those red eyes of Rhaella. ’But we live in this one now, and here I found you, and here,’ He paused for a moment, his eyes ensuring she would take in the words. ’I will never let you go, and It might not be easy, with whatever comes on our path.’ His voice was clear, as the charming smile rose around his lips again, before they trailed back to his fingers. Pushing them back up ever so subtle, following the muscle that ran upwards.  

The last words of the lady made his smile only grow bigger, seeing how she reacted to his words. ’Lets talk about this tomorrow as it’s already too late in the evening to send out letters. Tomorrow the first thing I’ll do is send out for the king in Valyria, we’ll see then.’ He promised. The movements of her hand made his gaze shift back from the window towards the lady, finishing the adventure his fingers took up her neck. Landing on her jawline he slowly went on, his gaze towards her red ones to make sure she wouldn’t be experience anything uncomfortable. ’Nothing we can do now but to relax and wait for that moment to come.’ Without releasing the gaze his thumb went for her lower lip, pushing it away from underneath her teeth. Leaning in a little bit, his eyes trailing for those soft lips of the redhead.

Rhaella Medici
She wears strength and darkness equally well,
the girl has always been half goddess, half hell 




Perhaps it would have been better to just run away. Run away with him and her animals and never ever return to this country or it’s people. They could sail to the west. To the orange fields of Vanaheim or roam with the other pirates on the island of Isla the Juegas. Everything. Even the cold plains of the north would be better than staying here. But even if they would stay in this country her father would probably find her. For that he was way too smart and since he had already seen most of the country he definitely knew were to search for her.

Her focus trailed back onto eros as he pointed out that they had to be smart about it. And smart they had to be to outsmart the former king of Navarre. And when he pointed out that the king of Valyria could probably help them a little more relief felt from her shoulders. A king. She wondered. If he would even help them at first. He would right? It was probably also in the mans best benefits to get rid of him. Any threats to Navarre could mean any threats to the rest of the world also. So she would not be surprised if the man was even able to help them. If only Eros would have enough influence to persuade the king. Seeing the smile he gave her after his words were finished made her lips curl up also. I hope he is able to help us. Not only our country is at stake. But also the rest of the countries could get involved. And I don’t think that is what he wants. She finished her words with a little sigh from her side and let her gaze trail over the rest of his face. Her slender fingers found their way towards his cheek. Her other hand was placed on the fabric on his chest and found a resting place there. Only to feel the warmth his body gave through the soft fabric. And while his hands were also raised her breath stopped for a moment when they touched her collarbone. She could feel how his fingers started to play with the fabric of her dress and Rhaella closed her eyes for a second or so just to enjoy this moment who seemed to be so unique already. She has accepted him from the moment she had met him on the borders of the forest. on that wintery day with the cracking of the snow beneath their feet. She wandering, and he all fancied dressed up into his armour on the champagne coloured stallion. The beautiful steed which she grew fond off. But the man on top of it who became so much more than just a friend. With that little thought in her weary mind she can’t help it but let a soft laugh run down her rosy lips. She was so lucky to have him by her side. And here they were, still stuck between the drama her father was causing.

The soft words that were unleashed between her lips made her eyes open again and Eros also turned his head around only to pinch his eyes into the one of hers again. She smiled a little as he continued to speak. And while he spoke out that he never wanted to let her go she could feel how her cheeks started to blossom and she looked down. He was right. It would not be easy what would come. But at least they would have each other to lean on.

Thank you again Eros. I cannot say it enough and I don’t know how I could do this without you. she hesitates and bites her lip when the words has been thrown out off her throat. Her cheeks were still slightly blossomed from the comment he made before. And even with all the hesitation that could be heard she knew that she ment every word of it. The little touches of his fingers gave her shivers in her whole body and she could not do anything but to lean onto his hand. Making sure not to escape from his touch ever again. The subtle crackling of the fireplace made her relax for a bit while she heard his words. She nods a little to answer his words. He was right. All they could do right now was just relax and see what would happen when the sun would rise again. But for now, this moment together with him could last a little longer. She has never been this close to anyone before but it had never made her feel uncomfortable. It had only made her eyes light up from the happiness she felt and her heart suddenly beating faster. Sometimes she was even sure she was able to hear her own heartbeat when he got close to her.

Rhaella let her hands trail towards his back where she placed them to rest for a while. Her breath was slowly returning towards it’s usually tempo again but her head started to feel a little more dizzy from the whole conversation and everything that has been going on. She leans against him a little more seeking comfort in his embrace. But before she could fully lean against him and let her head rest against his shoulder his green orbs found hers. His fingers were pushed up and found her jawline again. And without releasing his gaze his fingers trailed on placing his thumb on her lower lip. Her mouth slowly opened while he did that and she could feel how her breath turned a little more uncontrollable again. She could feel his body move and how he leaned in for a bit. Rhaella moves her hands a little but slowly got some grip around the fabric on his back. The connection between their eyes was shut down when his green orbs got lower. Her head tilts a bit and her breath caresses the skin of his lips before she presses hers on his slowly.
