Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/26 01:37PMWithout the wards set up to detect threats and defend against them, Lazarus had no way of knowing how much danger they were in. Thinking them safe with the temporary illusion, the wizard settled into the pillow with Myra in his arms and slowly drifted off to sleep. With her warmth contained and the heat of the desert kept out, it was more than comfortable enough to rest through the night.

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/26 02:10PMThe Black Sun Coven of sorcerers was a secretive group, though all kingdoms in their area knew how to contact them. Paid in gold and favors, they were the first and last solution to any magical problem a ruler might have. Having summoned a Djin of their own to protect and supply them, the sorcerers were more than interested by the messenger sent to them from the kingdom Myra had been staying in. Sending three of their battle sorcerers to meet with the ruler, he explained about the magical woman who had created a palace in the desert and surrounded it with a green oasis. Greed for this woman motivated him, and he offered them their weight in gold for her capture, to be made into a puppet for him to use as he saw fit. Enticed by the gold and interested in this magic woman for themselves, the sorcerers set out toward the location of Lazarus and Myra’s palace home under the cover of their own spells of hiding.

Apsara / Myra
00:39AMMyra woke up basking in the shine of post-love making …her djin powers healed her enough to let her feel sore or aching from the night but she kind of felt bad she couldnt feel that kind of hurt under her skin…she woke up on the wizards chest just the way she had fallen asleep …her hand held gentle yet firm by his she kissed his bare chest with a smile …slowly climbing out of bed and walking to the garden laz had told her she made possible…a royal blue silk robe fading onto her naked skin as she walked….she stood at the garden entrance of her palace admiring the little oasis that was reflecting the morning light with each ripple….pushing her loose hair behind her ear and arms folded across her chest she stood for a while admiring the peace while birds chirped from a near by tree….this wizard was really something she blushed turning to go back into his arms but the doors shut tight she thought its the wizards prank and just chuckled

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
06:57PMFeeling the warmth that had kept him comfortable through the night slowly fade away, Lazarus awakened with a yawn. Red eyes glanced down to where Myra had slept on his chest, now missing his lovely Djinn love slave. With a frown, the vampire pulled the sheets back and waved a hand over himself, casting a cleaning spell and conjuring a new set of black robes to drape over his pale skin. Another hand wave called forth the purple crystal they had made together and slipped it into his robe pocket, before Lazarus started looking around the palace for where Myra might have wandered off to this morning.

Apsara / Myra
09:22PMMyra tried the door…no luck…she started laughing “ok now laz open the door…” no reply no luck…she knit her eyebrows in confusion strange….she went around the garden that should take her to the the entrance …the door of the entrance flew open she smiled and started stepping through went she felt a hot iron collar fly to her skin and pull her flying back from the staircase and back to the ground…her eyes flew open this wasnt laz she knew it cant be she could hear chanting behind her as the collar grew colder colder a frozen one to her element of fire

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
09:29PMLazarus turned toward the front entrance of the palace, hearing the door open and then a rustling sound. “Myra? Where have you gone off to now, my dear?” He called out to her, expecting a response as he walked in that direction. And yet still there was no answer. Unaware of the danger she was in, the vampire continued his sedate pace, thinking that perhaps she simply hadn’t heard him.

Apsara / Myra
09:34PMshe turned around to see who it was …a million questions in her head how did they get in and more how could they hold her?…they certainly werent apprentice conjurers…she tied turning around but that made the chanting grow and the metal press into her skin …she heard lazarus ….but didnt want to call him..she didnt want to look helpless….her hair started flying around glowing electric blue as her eyes turned the same she broke into a run to the entrance but when she was pulled back she used the force to flip around into the air and land facing the wall of conjurers right outside the gates of their palace…they couldnt step in

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
09:43PMFinally coming to the entrance of the palace, Lazarus was startled to find Myra showing her distinctive glowing blue hair, something that marked that she was channeling significant magical power. Following her gaze, the vampire’s slit eyes narrowed at the robed individuals standing outside the gates of the palace chanting. His magical senses, so saturated by the strength of Myra’s powers, could finally narrow down the feeling of magic being used against her from these people now that he could see them physically. “Myra! What’s going on?” He called out while preparing a half dozen battle spells in his mind to be summoned forth at a moment’s notice.

Apsara / Myra
09:49PM”oh goodmorning love…this?looks like a morning practice also they want to hold me hostage” she smirked ….they couldnt enter ….she wrapped her arm around the chain that held her collar…wrapping it around in circles with a tug…the chanting grew and the collar got tighter but she held it all in and gave a final violent tug at the chain…the robbed who figure who held it came flying breaking his chant to the entrance but burned when any limb crossed the threshold and she was merciless to pull him more watch his body turn to ashes….the rest didnt seem to flinch

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
10:04PM”Hmmm. I don’t remember adding any ward that does that. Have you been doing a bit of home security work while I was resting, my dear?” Lazarus payed no mind to the fool who’d dared to try to chain his love slave and paid dearly for it, the crackling of the burning body reflecting off the vampire’s glowing red eyes. “Rather rude of them though, to interrupt our morning.” The wizard stepped down the staircase to stand right next to Myra, brows furrowing as he caught sight of the collar around her neck. “I think a punishment is owed for such rudeness.” Pilling out the purple crystal they’d made together from his pocket, the mixing energies within shining with untapped magical energy, Lazarus cast an incredibly overpowered Switching spell on the collar through the crystal. Like it had never been there, the collar disappeared from around the Djin’s lovely neck and reappeared around one of the robed spellcasters necks. A wave of his hand had the chain pulled tight, suddenly yanking the spellcaster into the same field that had burned away his associate and held the same fate for him. Where the first merely turned to ashes though, this one lit up in bright purple flames at the same time that a scream of unearthly pain rang out from him. The burning of a soul had immense power, and with a simple chant of his own to shape that power, the chain was similarly lit up with the purple flames and began to melt and mold together, slowly flowing into a smooth black staff with four prongs sticking up from the top. With a sadistic grin, Lazarus placed the purple crystal on the center of the prongs where it molded into the staff. “Ah, perfect.”

Apsara / Myra
10:14PM”this is no security work..id never doubt your wards”she chuckled rubbing her neck going blue under the freezing collar her eyes glaring into the one who was controlling it she smiled as she looked up at the wizard she crossed her arms across her chest as having him beside her got a her a better confidence sighing in relief as she felt the collar release rubbing her neck that felt cold now…she watched in pride as he gave out his punishment who dared to hold her in collars and chains her jaw dropped impressed at the new staff laz made for himself admiring how handsome he looked protecting her …with the leader now dead…the rest stepped back screaming warns of being back later.

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
10:25PMAs the fools tried to flee when faced with a mightier power than their own, Lazarus reached up to gently caress her neck, checking for any harm they may have done to her. She belonged to him and there was no way he would allow any to escape their just punishment if they had harmed her. A warming charm channeled through his palm pressed against her bare neck once Lazarus felt how cold it was. Turning his gaze back to the spellcasters trying to get away, the vampire’s gaze became colder even than the collar they’d tried to bind her with. Raising his new staff up to the sky, clouds began to form and turn black. The ominous rumble of thunder echoing out across the desert. Then, with a cry of “THUNDAGA!”, the wizard brought the staff down so that it’s crystal was pointed directly at the intruders. Like the smiting of an angry god, a torrent of lightning shot down from the black clouds and struck at them, jumping to every single one of the robed figures and making them scream out in pain. Even if the group they were part of came to haunt them again, these individuals would never trouble Lazarus and Myra ever again. Once the lightning stopped and their charred husks fell to the ground, screaming wisps of blue came streaking out of the bodies and flowed into the crystal, seemingly clawing as they tried to escape. But none were able to break free and were sealed inside.

Apsara / Myra
7/27 11:42PMshe tilted her head as he checked her…she didnt know if there were any bruises ..smiling at his concern as he looked at her neck closing her eyes as she felt his palm radiate warmth to her cold neck..chuckling at how it was her who was cold now…it scared her of what cold could do to a fire djin …..she admired him as he raised his staff and drove its curse to the fleeing robbed figures…he had no idea how magnificent he looked angry …angry protecting her….she stepped in closer and placed her palm lovingly of where his heart is….”that would be enough love..lets go back inside?” a part of her mind feared if these were the only ones to know her powers….

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/28 10:13AMLooking to her and catching a glimpse of the well hidden worry, Lazarus nodded and laid his hand over hers. “Of course. We’ve yet to have breakfast and I believe it’s time I put up some proper security wards. I’ve rather soured on uninvited guests.” Taking her hand with his free one, the wizard started leading the way back inside, his new staff clacking on the marble floor. Inside the gem, the souls of the robed figures who’d been killed by the vampire’s lightning spell were stored for later use. From them he would soon find out who had come for them, and where he might take his vengeance.

Apsara / Myra
7/28 10:16AMher face broke into a smile as he re-assured her…she followed him as he took her hand walked back inside….she looked inevitable the way he walked with that staff in his hand now…and blessing her destiny she was his damsel now as she followed him step for step …her magic getting the table ready for breakfast while they walked….

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/28 10:30AMLazarus smiled back at Myra knowingly after seeing the table already laid out for them, releasing his staff so that it could float over to stand by itself nearby. The wizard walked over to one of the chairs and pulled it out for her, offering her the seat. “What do you think for defenses of the place, my dear? Obviously we’ll need the standard wards to keep away intruders and hide our location. But for those who wish to push the issue, I was thinking something similar to a life and magic draining curse to help feed the oasis and keep it healthy.”

Apsara / Myra
7/28 10:37AMher eyes followed the staff as it floated out of his hand and stood nearby to him…taking the seat he pulled out for her and sat so graceful as if nothing had even happened a while ago and were just having a sweet breakfast time a couple “well the standard defences were enough to keep them out…what concerns me is though it kept them physically out…their magic could roam inside…something for? because i wouldnt want our oasis to depend on such curses” a rack of stuffed naan bread appeared before her and toast for him

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/28 04:40PMLazarus took the other seat once Myra had settled into hers, humming thoughtfully. “Yes, I suppose the garden would need more maintenance than the number of times we receive intruders. I’ll have to install some of my rune generators to power the spells keeping the land fertile. A similar generator to maintain the weather control spells, so that the plants can get regular water. But then the ward against intruders to feed the garden wouldn’t be much help.” The wizard idly contemplated the ward scheme out loud, as if trying to solve a complex math equation. While doing so, he raised an eyebrow at the stuffed naan bread, having never seen the dish before. “As for their magic, I could set up a specialized ward for screening magical energy signatures. Paired with an absorption spell sequence, it should be able to absorb any magical energy that is not keyed into the ward. Once we lock it to ourselves, none will be able to cast inside the ward except for us.”

Apsara / Myra
7/29 04:55AMMyra kept nodding trying to comprehend his words…while her eyes were looking at lazarus her mouth was busy relishing the exotic indian food…she caught his eyebrow raise and offered him a bite holding the triangular cut naan like a pizza to him”so this magic absorption ward…will it have a limit? like can it be busted by overcharging? “

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/29 05:28PM”Hmmm, that would be problematic. But, I have just the thing for that.” Lazarus grinned and leaned in to take a bite of the offered food, humming in approval at the pleasant texture and delicious spices. He savored it for a few more moments, then swallowed before speaking again. “I can set up a Mako extractor connected to the ward to prevent overcharge. It will condense the magical energy into a dense liquid form that can be stored more easily. While I’m at it, I suppose I could move straight to the crystallization stage after that to create Materia from the condensed magical energy. In that way, we would be able to directly steal the magical abilities of intruders if they attempt to use magic against us.”

Apsara / Myra
7/29 10:24PMshe nodded at him with raised eyebrows “mhmm while you are at that…is there anything i can help you with??” she bent over to wipe a little of the stuffing off from the corner of his lips and lick her finger back to her seat and back to eating

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
7/29 10:42PM”Well, there are two things you can do for me, my dear.” Lazarus’s eyes lingered on her curvaceous body as she bent over, following the supple motion when Myra returned to her seat. “I will need a diamond of incredible size to anchor the wards. Something I am unable to conjure for myself. It has to be in one solid piece, in the shape of a sphere, and exactly ten feet wide. I’ll need to prepare one of the lower floors for the full rune scheme of the ward, but once that is done the gem will need to be placed. It will become the palace heart.” The vampire reached over and traced a single sharp fingernail gently down her forearm, resting his hand over hers when he reached it. “And of course, it would be delightful to enjoy your company while I work. I might even need a meal to regain my magical power while I charge the runes.” He smiled, revealing the tips of his fangs and hinting at exactly what kind of meal he would want. A particularly pleasurable meal for her.

Apsara / Myra
7/29 10:49PMMyra was trying to imagine the diamond he spoke of…it would be difficult as gemstones had their own magic fields and capabilities to absorb them….she need need a coal to raise a diamond of her own…his sliding finger giving her gentle shivers of goosebumps…her pupils darkened at the hints of his words making her smirk and bite into her naan to hide the smile spreading on her face
