His mind is a mess, a torrent of darkness and insanity. I was amazed I found his powers, his mind was so dark and unforgiving and blood stained the hallowed corridors, the dull white walls stained black with horror. Damn it, it was scary. I closed my eyes though, allowing the horror and macabre take over as I searched, eventually when I did find it I knew I was deep in his past and his mind. Things tugged at me, begging for my attention but I persisted, turning on the dark doors handle. A warm wind embraced me as the door flew open and some of the horror melted away, only some of it. Most of his memories seemed stained to his mind and I knew this was why he was so angry and cold all the time. Oh Luca... I thought as I withdrew from his head, instantly taking in the pain that I had caused him as he sat crouched at the end of the bed. “Luca, I’m sorry. I just, they were locked so deeply within your mind. You should have them back now.” I nodded, hoping I was right. I never want to go in his mind again.
He took a moment to regain his breath "S'ok. Um... thanks, I think," he smiled weakly as he looked up at me. I wrapped my arms around him tightly, "I am so sorry." I wasn’t saying this because of what I had done, more for what I had seen. Those dark halls, forsaken; nothing lay there in that abandoned, desolate, unholy place I only wished I would have no reason to go there again.
"I'm fine," he mumbled, returning the hug.
"Do you have them back?" I muttered, still refusing to let go. I found myself hugging him more for my comfort than his. I turned my head slightly so I could see as he picked up the table lamp and placed it back down again. “Good.” I smiled, letting my head rest there on his chest for a while.
“No need.” I thought for a while, the score was a little uneven; I believe I just saved him again... "Although, I have saved your ass twice now; you owe me."
"Huh. What happened to you making it up to me?" I just gave you back your powers. It hardly compares to what I did to you.
"I suppose we'll have to make it up to each other," I didn’t want to argue so I found it best to come to a compromise.
"Hmm," he hummed; I couldn’t quite make out what he meant from it.
"Just, allow me to take in this hug without you frozen." I smiled; it truly was a rare thing. He nodded slightly and my smile widened. “Thank you, Luca.”
"S'ok," he muttered again, how did I know that was coming? Shut up brain, I’m enjoying this, well I was until my brain came out with: "I suppose, you can go, now you have your powers back an' all."
"I'm being given my marching orders already, huh?"
"Of course I want you to stay." I still hadn’t pulled back from the hug; I was enjoying his warmth too much. It even made my brain shut up. It was a miracle, that’s for sure.
"I'm not that bad in bed then?" he laughed.
"No, but you know that's not why I want you to stay." I giggled.
"Mmm, I know."
"Sorry to ruin that moment." I laughed for a second.
"I'll live, I guess," he smiled.
"You guess? So you may die soon?" My tone was incredulous, I knew it was.
"Well only if they get all the zodiacs in one place and kill us." He shrugged; I wanna know how these original zodiacs died. Get thirteen people together in one place
"Hmm still no impact on what I did to you?" I mumbled, only just realising I was still naked; I pulled away from the embrace.
"You're not going to die just because I umm..." It took me a while to find the right words. "Because I didn't allow you to finish?" I still found myself feeling weird even when I only implied sex. I didn’t like talking about it but I didn’t mind the act itself.
"Oh," he chuckled, "dunno. Maybe you should save me just once more. Y'know. Just in case."
"You're just sly." I laughed, wrapping my arms around him I pulled him down onto the bed again.
"No. Just horny," he grinned.
"Mmm, it seems so." I mumbled, allowing my hands to run down his body to his most private place. "It seems you need saving quite a bit." I grinned back.
"Yeah, my healing ability seems to have become slightly destructive the last couple of days," he laughed indicating to where my hands were.
"Mmm." I nodded, allowing my movements to become faster. "You'll owe me even more in a while."
"I will," he mumbled through a soft growl.
"You better." I laughed, moving as fast as I could. I moved more on instinct now, looking at him as I moved my hand in a steady rhythm. He growled again, wordlessly this time, and louder, pulsing desperately in my hand. "Now you're twice in my debt." I smiled deviously. He just nodded as the release overtook him. I brought back my hands, resting them beside me as I lay beneath him grinning up at him. He smiled back and I kissed him softly; mixing the desire and passion with the love and care, hoping it would be an accepted compromise, he kissed me back and I smiled. I know you’re not as dark and cold as you may seem Luca... I know it.
