Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/14 10:29PMLazarus Kishimoto stood out like a sore thumb on the brightly lit and sandy streets of the bazaar, the sun shining down intensely on his dark suit and hair. Though his vampire nature chafed under the burning orb in the sky, the wizard had long ago passed the threshold of power needed to stand beneath the heated rays without turning to ash. Red slitted eyes cast back and forth over the stalls in the marketplace as Lazarus idly searched through them for anything that might draw his attention, his mystical senses extended in the hopes that there might be a small speck of magic here that he could study. It was the only thing that could make his current situation better, lost as he was in yet another potentially temporal and/or spacial experiment that had cast him away from Hellifyno.

Apsara / Myra
7/14 10:34PMMyra walked casually past the various stalls…nothing quite interested her ..she could just create all these with her magic but she had to see what she wanted …she walked to one particular stall that sold antique rings…picking each up and remembering the details the seller was quite amused and happy as she picked up quite a few …only to keep them back making him scoff and curse her for wasting his time …she walked away unbothered it wasnt the first time she got a seller angry…the bright sun didnt bother her but she waited for the nights…for no known reason she was inclined to the cold and dark than the bright and warm ….a sheen layer of sweat glistened in the sunlight as she walked over to a shady bar

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/14 10:46PMThere was a sudden sensation that swept over Lazarus then, as he was just barely paying attention to the marketplace. His magic senses picked up a massive concentration of the mystical energies nearby, larger than any he’d felt since first coming to this place. Curious now and unable to hold back the urge, the vampire started moving toward the source of the magic, stalking through the bazaar as he tracked it down. Slowly following in the feeling of its trail, the wizard was brought to shadowed bar nearby, the perfect place for one such as he to better observe his target. Stepping between the light colored stone buildings into the darker alley that led to the bar, Lazarus allowed his body to disappear into the shadows, ghosting closer to the newest curiosity that had captured his interest.

Apsara / Myra
7/14 10:50PMMyra could feel eyes on her…crimson eyes was all she could circle on..she kept walking …turning at every table to observe if she were being followed….yes she was she confirmed herself and walked to the corner most booth ,the presence she felt wasnt a curios human ,it felt undead , and to face this entity she had to have a corner for herself , genies were still looked down upon as mere wish granters in this kingdom and a female genie? she was looked at just like a mystical bed warmer

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/14 11:01PMOnce inside the bar itself, it was far simpler to locate the source of the magic that he had felt. A woman, black of hair and with skin fairer than he had seen in quite a long time, that was moving toward a booth in the corner of the bar. Magical energy almost poured off of her as easily as breathing to his senses, and the wizard needed to understand. Who was she? What was she? How had she achieved such magical might? All of these questions and so many more he had. Like a cool breeze, unfamiliar in these heated lands, the vampire slipped through the shadows of the bar and reformed himself in the seat across from her in the booth she had chosen, just as the woman was sitting down herself. “Well met. Would you care to have a drink with me?” He grinned, just enough to hint at the fangs hidden just beneath his sly lips.

Apsara / Myra
7/14 11:05PMshe gasped in surprise but also smirked as the entity now that knew was a vampire man wasnt foolish enough to be an easy prey to her…”i wouldnt mind…but let me tell you i dont get drunk” she left the fact untold that it would take just a drop of a particular mystical brew that made any alcohol behave just the same as it did on anyone else…he didnt have to know that the bartender had this with him…Myra was still standing studying the man…pale skin…long black hair…quite similar just that she was a genie and he a vampire

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/14 11:18PM”I see. A bold claim. And perhaps one that I can even test, if you wish to try. Please, sit.” He extended a hand to the opposite seat of the booth, offering a peaceful meeting for the time being. Whether that would remain so was yet to be seen. “I have traveled quite a long time and tasted many varieties of spirits, but I believe I have something for just such a problem.” Turning his hand over so that the palm was facing the table, Lazarus conjured a pair of crystal wine glasses with naught a sound or flash. It was as if they had simply appeared with a flex of his will. Reaching into his suit jacket, the vampire pulled free a sealed bottle of some manner of wine, one that had an archaic dead language written on the side. To someone of magical perceptions, it would practically shimmer with mystical energy. “I remember picking up a few crates of this during the age of aquilonia, before the rise of the barbarian kings. It was brewed beneath the light of a blood moon, during a decadent ritual to a forgotten pleasure goddess. I have not tasted its like for almost a thousand years.”

Apsara / Myra
09:33PMthe smirk on her face faded as her eyes fell onto the vial …she could see it sparkle like it held the stars in its liquid hands…she looked back up at him realizing her stare could be taken for granted as a shock of defeat…the brew that worked on her was rather more liquid gold like , made as per the forgotten recipe written in the vedas in the lands of the golden bird hindustan …also known as the drink of gods…flipping her hair behind her shoulder the took the seat across the vampire…crossing her arms across her chest…her arms pushing her blouse a little lower as she does so but she wasnt aware of this…”im game for it vampire” she tilted her head her mind working up the gears of what this vampire wanted from her…

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
09:54PM”Ah, so you know what I am already. That will ease our conversation, I think. No need for surprises like my nature to disrupt our pleasant meeting and the taste of our drinks.” He spoke smoothly as he popped the cork on the bottle, releasing a tiny mist of glimmering red that lingered for a moment before it dissipated, leaving the booth filled with the scent of summer fruits and the feeling of a gentle lover’s caress. With a steady hand, the vampire poured out a small sampling of the wine for each of them, then recorked the bottle and sealed it with a wave of his fingers over the stoppered opening. Setting the bottle down, Lazarus lifted his glass and gave a small toast to her, then took a sip for himself to show that it was not tampered with in any way. “Please, enjoy. I hope that you might accept this offering as a bit of an apology for my intrusion. But I had to learn more about you as soon as I sensed you.”

Apsara / Myra
10:08PMshe couldnt blame him for his curiosity over her…her magic field mustve been detected clearly by this undead man the way she sensed him…gracefully taking the glass and accepting his toast she raised the cold glass to her lips…the drink kissing her lips gently,true it was nothing like she had ever tasted..and it was an ancient make for the bar was filled with a scent of exotic fruits and the warmth of a forgotten lover….”what do you want to know vampire?” she lowered the glass before speaking…her soul shining as the drink left her lips like a partner breaking away from a kiss

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
10:14PM”Ah, pardon my manners. My name is Lazarus Kishimoto. A pleasure to meet you.” He smiled and took another sip of the wine, savoring the way the flavor clung to his palette like a sated newlywed. “I’m most curious what you are, if you do not mind my asking. It has been a long time since I last felt a magical presence as powerful as yours, and back then I was standing in the presence of a crystallized legend given material form. The study of magic is my passion, and I cannot help but be enthralled by new mysteries of magic. At my age, it is a rare and delightful change to discover something I have never seen before.”

Apsara / Myra
10:21PMshe smiled as she spoke “Myra…just Myra a half-genie born out of the cursed union of a westlander and a djin…”she acknowledged his curiosity trying to cover her own.she tipped the glass back to her lips letting the drink caress her senses like the embrace of a lover in the morning ..”thats quite a love-ly spirit you have” she tilted her head in appreciation,hoping her lonely nature wont get her addicted to such a spirit

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
10:27PM”Myra. Such a lovely name.” Lazarus grinned, his voice soothing alongside the warmth of the drink to ease their conversation. It truly could be an addictive drink, though not for any magic or drug within it. The feelings alone that the drink arose in those who partook of it could drive one to fall over the steep cliffs of alcoholism, just to feel that light touch once more. “If you enjoy it so much, then I will gift you the rest of the bottle. I have many more, and the cost of but one is nothing compared to being close to you today. A djin, truly? And you bear half of that magical lineage? Remarkable indeed. How does your magic express itself? Are there any kinds that you find particularly easy or that come to you without thought?”

Apsara / Myra
10:49PMher mind replayed his words searching for any traps…it came naturaly to her with her djin lineage,they were wise with words “being close to me today? okay im ready to pay the price at that…” as he asked of her magic and djin lineage she never really even knew if the djin was her father or mother…was it safe to let her magic secrets out? “my elemental color is blue…blue fire to be precise and not water…i can conjure up anything i like but first i need to see it for it to be the exact same and teleportation through smoke comes as easy as well…apart from that nothing more special” she explained …her hair glowing a striking blue to show it to him “and im nothing like those master serving shackled 3-wish genies …thats rather insulting “

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
11:06PM”I see. The blue fire must be more intense than normal, or perhaps it holds further mystical properties? Conjuration makes sense, given Djinni natural ability to call matter into existence, though it does not surprise me that you are limited to things you have seen before. Mortal beings have strong ties to the material, and such ties can interfere in natural magical abilities. Teleportation I have seen before, but never through the medium of smoke.” Lazarus’s red eyes widened slightly as he saw her hair change color so suddenly, sensing the magic as Myra allowed some of her heritage to shine through. “I am glad that you are not so shackled, my dear. It would be a shame for a gem as lustrous as yourself to be so marred by such a cruel fate. Would you care for more wine?” He offered, lifting the bottle and gesturing to her empty glass.

Apsara / Myra
11:11PMthe wine held her in a trance…he had hit at the right kind of drink the feeling of being held made her want more of it…her hair died back to black as she raised her glass to him accepting his offer “what about you lazarus? you might be quite old the way you speak , your existence must be a boon for you can hold eons of knowledge now forgotten to the rest” she was sure he knew quite well about djins and genies of her land too

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
11:23PMUnsealing the bottle once more, Lazarus steadily filled her glass and then topped off his own. “I have lived for over a thousand years, though not all of it was as a vampire. My father bore vampiric blood and I inherited much of my lineage from him. Seeking every ounce of knowledge I could wring from my bloodlines and the magics within, I experimented on myself to enhance my vampire traits. Through this empowered bloodline, I was able to unlock the dark gifts of my vampire family. It was not until I died in truth that the price for such magics were realized. I arose not long after as a full vampire, with more than my fair share of the cursed magics of my clan. Such a state is not unfamiliar to me, though some things have taken some getting used to. Like the need for blood.” The wizard held her gaze with his slitted eyes as he took another sip of the wine, a hint of his fangs peeking through. He knew much about the legends of Djin and genies, though had never encountered one himself.

Apsara / Myra
7/16 06:16AMShe nodded into her glass as he spoke..she had heard about the vampires of far away lands but never encountered one …the fact as he told ‘experiments’ made her suspicious as its wasnt rare to find her self being tricked for her blood…hers specialy as it had enough of human blood to make it suitable for any exploiters use without killing him…red blood shimmering as if it were mixed with liquid gold….”interesting ” she tilted her head …his fangs intimidated her..but also made her want to reach out and touch the tip like the lore of a sleeping beauty to the cursed needle…

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/16 11:17AMLazarus noticed her gaze dipping toward his fangs and smirked, revealing one of them further. “Has something caught your eye, Myra? If you have questions, then please feel free to ask. I came to you to sate my own curiosity, so it is only right that I allow you to have your own questions answered. Perhaps we might even be able to make a bargain of sorts. I desire to study you and your magic in the hopes that I might learn the secrets of Djinni inherent mystical powers. Is there anything you could want for such a request? Something I might be able to provide for you?” He took another sip, enjoying the feelings brought on by the wine. Each taste of it helped to soothe their talk and ease tension. It was one of the reasons he kept a supply of the drink, for when he needed to charm his way towards a new curiosity or subject he wished to study.

Apsara / Myra
7/16 11:45AMMyra was brought out of her stare with his words…though her eyes were still stuck on his fangs as he spoke making her feel like a lover trying to get a peek …”Id like to know more about you..but my mind fails to rest on what to ask…”she looks up at him …his red eyes were like no other she had ever looked at….she was ready to be his subject…”Vampire…what ever it is you wish to know about me…i agree to be of any help you need…but in return…id like a dozen of these spirits please?”

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/16 11:56AM”Then we shall have to discover more about each other together. For such a thing as that, they are yours of course. Is there somewhere we can be alone? Somewhere you would like me to leave the bottles, while giving us some privacy? I am eager to study you already.” Lazarus flicked his thin and pointed tongue over the tip of one fang, collecting a drop of the wine that had lingered while she watched. His free hand reached across the table to trace a fingertip over the pale and tender skin on the back of her own hand, gently teasing Myra with the lightest of touches from the sharp, almost claw-like fingernail there.

Apsara / Myra
7/16 12:01PMThe drink had the effect it needed….it gave her all touches it needed mentally…but when his cold skin touched hers her heartbeat fast enough for him to hear sitting across…”I..We can go to my palace ?” she suggested “might not be to your liking but thats the only place i have for myself ” a bead of sweat glided down her slender neck and into the valley her chest created under the hold of her silk blouse…

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/16 12:12PMLazarus’s sensitive and supernatural ears could hear that beating heart and it only confirmed what he already knew. She was nearly in his grasp now. “That should more than suffice, my dear. The bottles will keep for thousands of years should they need to. I suppose it is not surprising that one so beautiful and powerful should live in a palace. It seems only fitting.” He trailed his finger down her arm, then gently took up Myra’s hand and pressed a kiss to the back of it. “And such a large space will give us plenty of room to perform an extensive, thorough and…” There he paused, looking up into her eyes and weaving a subtle and nearly undetectable charm that would appear as only a glimmer of desire. “…intimate examination.”

Apsara / Myra
7/16 12:20PMthough she was sure she heard ‘intimate’ her mind totally won over now chose to ignore it,her mind already racing to her palace …she didnt realize she was teleporting them to her palace along with the table and chairs they were occupying at the bar…they were surrounded by smoke as she worked it as Lazarus just held onto her hand he could feel the sinister pull to be thrown out into the void as the process of teleportation began…only when the table and chair landed into her hall with a thud did Myra realize her doing…the white smoke gave away to reveal the arabic interiors of her hall….dimly lit with stained glass lanterns on the walls..the scent of jasmine enveloped the hall through the open windows …Myra was left embarrassed at herself for the untimely teleportation

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/16 12:32PMThe sudden teleportation was shocking to the vampire, though only for the suddenness of the transition. He had dealt with other forms of teleportation before, and so the feeling was not unfamiliar. He was rather surprised that the table and chairs had been brought with them as well, but attributed the mistake to the spread of the smoke, rather than to Myra herself. The palace around them was a sight that the wizard took a moment to analyze and appreciate, the design and scents making the place comfortable and beautiful at once. “My, I expected a palace but my mental image does not do it justice. I fear that the new furniture will not match, though.” He smiled, gesturing to the table and chairs with his free hand. The other remained in her grasp, softly tracing the pad of his thumb over her smooth skin.

Apsara / Myra
7/16 12:37PMWhat was happening to her?was she under hypnosis..her magic ruled out the possibility maybe it was just the first time she was being touched this way that made the woman in her act up to its instincts ….she was half-human afterall…she got up from her chair but did not pull her hand away from his gentle yet shackle like hold…”if you could please stand i can return the furniture back to its right full place”she smiled …the wind from the open windows across her made the sheen layer of sweat dry with a chill on her pale milk like skin

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/16 01:01PM”Very well.” He rose from his seat and stepped around her, their joined hands leading her arm as it crossed her body until he was standing just behind Myra with their clasped hands resting on her hip. His free hand came to rest on her other hip and the vampire used his height to peak over her shoulder to watch the magic happen. Standing this close he could smell her perfume and the slightest hint of sweat, as well as the coppery tang of her blood pumping just beneath the surface of that creamy skin. “Is here fine? I hoped to watch your work.” Lazarus whispered near her ear, his voice rich and smooth. Without turning to look, there was no telling just how close those fangs of his were to her bare and slender neck.

Apsara / Myra
7/16 01:09PMMyra was confused was this an embrace? or something sinister? his hold on her hand was quite strong but that could also mean just a casual firmness…the hand on her hip made her stomach taut up in the desire of being held…”what…what would you like me to do?” she asked not quite sure what about her magic did he want to see?his cold breeze like breath on her neck broke her skin into goosebumps that ran down her spine…her hands burst into blue sparkles at the upsurge of different emotions in her

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/16 01:25PM”Your teleportation.” He murmured, before leaning in and pressing his cool lips to the tender flesh just above Myra’s artery. Lazarus could see the effect he was having on her, could smell her desires. As Myra’s hands burst into sparkles, the vampire released her hand and rested his own against her other hip, keeping her body against his while his eyes strayed to her magic. “I’ve seen inside the smoke and the teleportation. Now I need to see the outside. To observe and compare. My studies require extensive observation and rigorous testing.” He chuckled, a deep and low bass that she would be able to feel against her back through the wizard’s chest.

Apsara / Myra
7/16 01:30PMMyra gulped loud as she felt the vibrations of his chuckle through his chest and to her back…her shorter frame nit helping any much….her hand being freed she raised just her right hand a little bit as this didnt require alot of magic …a flick of her finger was enough for the table and chairs to be engulfed in a light blue smoke …..the furniture could be seen fading through the translucent clouds of smoke until it all died down leaving just the huge royal carpet on the floor…she would turn to face him at the completion of the task but his lips at her neck prevented her from doing so…

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/16 01:42PM”Impressive.” He whispered, flicking the tip of his tongue against her neck and tracing her artery. But then Lazarus pulled back from her so that she could turn to face him, a smile on his face wide enough that both fangs were visible. “It was truly fortunate of me to have stumbled across you, my dear. Now, where shall I place the wine? It will keep almost anywhere and for thousands of years.” The wizard had switched topics so suddenly it was almost jarring, but it was all to tease her just a bit more. To get her used to his presence and break down any natural suspicion. That and his closeness earlier had given him the chance to trail a few drops of a light aphrodisiac across her skin with his tongue, the potion it was derived from watered down and absorbing almost instantly when it came into contact with living flesh.

 

Apsara / Myra
7/16 01:50PMMyra had no idea what he found so very interesting…were genies so rare? as she felt him moving away from her back after she felt a soft wet muscle run on the soft sweet spot of her neck…tongue?she wondered…the breeze from the wind quick to take up the between them…she turned around to face him her eyes instantly falling onto the fangs…her hands reaching out once again to touch the tip…her skin started feeling different…warmer even quite a contrast to her the cold breeze….”huh?oh the vials…here should be fine..the palace is all to me so it doesnt matter where you leave it” she responded…a strange heat forming inside her…a heat she never felt before

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/16 01:56PM”Do you wish to touch them?” He asked her as her hands came up to reach for his fangs. Reaching up with his own, Lazarus clasped them over hers and guided them toward the sharp teeth, careful not to let her prick herself just yet. A flicker of his eye just past Myra had a small rack of wine bottles appearing with a soft ‘pop’, as the wizard portkeyed them there from within the extradimensional space within his coat. The aphrodisiac was taking effect now, stirring the desires she already had and lowering her inhibitions slowly. “Or perhaps, do you wish to feel them being used, Myra? Do you intend to offer yourself up to me?”

Apsara / Myra
7/16 02:01PM”I…i dont know” her mind already raced to imagine his fangs down on her neck…it would hurt yes but wasnt pain quite beautiful in itself…and with her blood regeneration speed she was sure it wouldnt her….not much atleast…before she could make up her mind her instinct had her turning around and gently pulling long black hair onto the right side of her neck…leaving the left exposed to his mercy…it wasnt at his mercy if she wanted it right? as she turned she saw the rack of bottles appear on the empty shelves…their mystical brew shimmering though far away to be seen properly

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/16 02:07PMLazarus stepped in behind her as she revealed her neck to him, wrapping his arms around her middle and holding her tightly. The vampire leaned in and nuzzled against the side of her throat, pressing another kiss against her pulse laced with just a few more drops of the aphrodisiac. “It seems you have made your choice, my dear. Now relax. You should only feel a slight pinch.” The vampire opened his mouth wide, exposing his long fangs fully, then sank them into her neck while closing his lips over the puncture. There was the expected pain of course, for the first second or so. But then the pain would begin to fade into a sensation of heat and tingling pleasure, spreading like a slow wave from where he had bitten.
