Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 00:26AMThrough the night, the Black Sun Coven prepared for their confrontation. Gathering their most powerful casters and materials, the dark gathering spent the time making deals with Dalil for specially crafted weapons, to overcome the dangerous magics that their enemy had and to use the weakness they had foreseen with their scrying. By morning they would ride out to face the pair. As night passed and the sun rose over the hidden oasis, Lazarus awoke slowly. The day before had drained him through sheer mental strain and magical exhaustion, but Myra had restored much of his power and strength with her blood, making what could have been a week in bed into merely a groggy morning rise.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 00:29AMDalil was curious when they spoke of a fire elemental genie…but dusted it off regarding it as his new competition…and gladly helped them well he was selfish enough to be wanting to remain the most powerful in the kingdom….Myra shuffled and stayed asleep beside lazarus …not tired just lazy

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 00:43AMThe vampire looked down to the sleeping Djin on his chest and smiled, raising a hand to stroke her soft hair. Not wanting to wake her just yet, he silently conjured a warm breakfast for the both of them on elaborate silver trays. A classical english spread, with steaming blueberry oatmeal, scrambled eggs and buttered toast, a rasher of bacon and a hot tea. The tea was of a special blend that the wizard had created long ago, using herbology spells to fuse different flavors into the plants. It was rich and refreshing without being bitter, and tasted of peppermint. The trays floated just above the bedsheets, keeping themselves aloft so that he and Myra could enjoy it without having to move around.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 03:02AMthe aroma of the breakfast awaiting her woke her up….she opened her eyes to lazarus holding his hand which was on her head and kissed his chest with a smile and dreamy eyes “goodmorning master” she spoke in a nectar like bed voice as she pulled herself up to sit and stretch her sleepy body….chuckling at the floating trays “the breakfast looks delicious…” sitting up cross legged beside her master

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 09:22AM”Good morning to you as well, my Myra.” As she stretched, Lazarus took a moment to appreciate her curvaceous form. enjoying the sight this early in the morning. “I wasn’t sure if you would like this style of breakfast. But I’m happy to see that my worries were unfounded. How did you sleep, my dear?” The vampire sat up and leaned over to give her a peck on the lips, his hand coming up to caress her cheek.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 09:27AMshe smiled with her eyes closed as he kissed her goodmorning…. “i slept quite well” she yawned and sat back with her back leaning against the wall as the tray floated forward…”feeling fine Lazarus?” she asked tilting towards him with concern ….her eys ran on the dishes spread out on the silver tray…oatmeal?hmmm new to her….buttered toast ,scrambled eggs and bacon and tea ? yes please!!

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 09:31AM”Thanks to you I am. A bit groggy, perhaps. But nothing another nights rest won’t accomplish.” Lazarus pulled his legs up and crossed them, pulling his tray to rest over his lap. “And you? How do you feel now that you are connected to the wards and the Palace Heart? The link should have had time to settle overnight. Any strange feelings or pain?”

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 09:35AM”no pain but i can hear the heartbeat ringing in my ears…..and a little too jumpy with so much energy passing through me” she observed her hands as he reminded her of last day…shaking her hands she observed wisps of blue sparks flew from her hands “woah! and thats new but nothing hurtful nope” she looked over at her master biting through the toast

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 09:42AMLazarus eyed the sparks while taking bite of a fork full of scrambled eggs. “Once you get used to it, the beating heart feeling should fade to the background, though you will always be aware of it through the connection. As for the sparks, it seems having this much magic flowing through you is bringing you even closer to your Djin heritage. I would estimate that your powers will come much easier to you now, and not just because of the readily available energy.” Taking a sip of tea to rinse the flavor of eggs down and think for a moment, the wizard continued. “If you ever feel any kind of pain, I want you to tell me immediately. Understood?” He rested his hand on her thigh, pushing his feelings of seriousness and concern through their bond.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 09:46AMthe bond made her feel the emotions he was feeling too….she smiled at his concern and spoke with her face in her cup “i will master…” she had no idea if being a complete djinni was a good for her or what changes it would get in her life ….as long as she could keep her hair from turning blue permanently and not wear gloves to hide her hands she was ok with it …rethinking his words questions flowed into her mind making her knit her eyebrows “so does this mean if a wall of the palace gets broken down it affects me too or if i get hurt some wall crumbles too?” she placed her hand on top of his that was resting on her thigh

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 09:52AM”As long as the Palace Heart remains undamaged, your power and the magic the Heart draws on will repair any damage to the palace and grounds on its own. And as long as you are linked to it, the Heart will refill your magic from the magic of the planet.” The wizard could feel her worries about her hair and being forced to hide her hands, but merely sent back his own feelings of admiring her lovely hair in both forms and reassurance that her magic was her own to control. “But, you will also have control of the wards of the palace, letting you decide who can use magic inside and letting you know instantly who has stepped across the barrier.” Lazarus lifted her hand on top of his to his lips, pressing a kiss to the back of it.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 09:58AMher lips curved impressed as she listened to the bond between the palace and her…..she was proud of her master not only as a slave but as a companion too….blushing as he kissed the back of her hand….

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 10:11AMLazarus smiled at the sight of her blush and the feelings of pride he could sense through the bond. With those in mind and Myra’s pleasant company, breakfast went by quickly and enjoyably, starting their morning with a refreshing sense of contentment. Little would the pair know that the Black Sun had arranged themselves in groups half a mile from the location of the palace, making final preparations for their assault. Three groups of three sorcerers, each bearing the magical weapons of Dalil, began trekking over the sands toward the hidden palace. The rest stayed behind to chant, attempting to cast a spell to break the ward hiding the palace from view

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 10:20AM Myra left the oatmeal bowl half empty …the taste not as per palates though the tea felt quite a relief as it slid down her throat ….she made theempty trays disappear from the bedroom and into the kitchen…being bonded with the palace it made such tricks easier compared to earlier now…she leaned into his arm as they waited to start the day while far away the chanting by the sorcerers had the wards fade out like clouds to reveal the magnificent palace of marble

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 10:26AM As the ward hiding the palace faded away, the three groups struck on their own. Using blasting spells, the sorcerers tore open a hole to break through the barrier and step through into the garden, an action that Myra would be able to feel instantly through her connection to the wards. “You know what to do. Now go!” The leader of the groups directed, and they split up to attack from different directions. Meanwhile, as they finished their breakfast, Lazarus stretched and slipped his legs over the edge of the bed, calling his staff to his hand to dress himself. “A wonderful start to the day, my dear. Just a bit of light rune work today and then we have all the time in the world for ourselves. Perhaps a dip in the oasis pool? What do you think?”

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 10:31AMMyra smiled at his suggestion but gasped and held his hand tight looking up at him with her eyes wide in horror “Laz….somethings wrong with the wards…you said id feel a pain right???i felt it!!! like skin being peeled off” she rose to her feet and ran to the balcony to see the sorcerers that had managed to make the hole through the wards….three groups….three sorcerers….she was terrified she climbed on the balcony wall her hair turning blue instantly as she shot fire at them

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 10:42AMAs Myra shot the fire at the sorcerers, they raised up a gem hanging on a short necklace. All of the fire she threw at them seemed to get drawn into the gems, fizzling out as the last of it disappeared. Then the three raised their hands and magical chains formed and shot toward her, seeking to wrap her up and pull her down to them. Lazarus, startled by the suddenness of the attack, was running toward where Myra had started fighting them when the sound of an explosion ripped through the palace. It sounded like it had come from the front door and the rear of the palace at the same time, meaning there were more groups. Cursing, the wizard moved to the balcony alongside Myra to protect her and fight alongside her. As the magical chains were shot toward the Djinn, the magical energy was drained out of the spells by the remaining wards though, making them dissolve long before they could reach her. It seemed as though the other two had used much more powerful spells, however, allowing them to break through.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 10:50AMMyra watched shocked as her fire got absorbed into the necklace….she felt the gem pull her magic and had to stop forcefully….instead of shooting them with fire she made the sand behind them rise up into sharp conical stones and fly to their backs ….her hands glowing engulfed in blue sparks as her pupils started glowing too ….she felt the explosion before she heard it one part of mind trying to strengthen the wards put up by lazarus but she knew for sure….these sorcerers had given assisted in fighting a djinni…. she turned to lazarus as he appeared beside him…a bare second of staring into his eyes with promises to get through it as she continued raising spokes from the sand

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 11:13AMThe sorcerers were too shocked by their magic spells draining away to notice the sharp stones rising up behind them. All three of that group were impaled by the sharp points, their blood staining the green plants of the garden. Lazarus hadn’t even had time to raise his staff before Myra had finished them off. “Excellent work, my dear. Now where are the others?” The wizard prepared his lightning spell again, readying it to unleash as soon as he caught sight of the sorcerers. As it happened, the two groups were moving up the stairs toward the main bedroom now, having breached the front and back doors of the palace with their spells. Each of them wearing a pure white glove on one hand, two of them on the right hand and one wearing his on his left.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 11:20AMthe seconds they were left with myra smiled at her master happy to have pleased him and also satisfied with a smirk to find the sorcerers dead and bleeding…making a note to examine the necklace they had with them…she turned around ansering him “they are in the……..” the sorcerers had already barged into their bedroom before she could complete her sentence “bedroom!” she was too occupied to notice the strange pattern of their glove wearing trying to think what she could attack them with….

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 11:24AMReacting quickly, Lazarus shot bolts of lightning at them from his staff, but the sorcerers smirked and raised their arms. The lightning seemed to pull right into the bracelets each of them were wearing, leaving behind glowing designs on the bracelets. Then all six brought up the white gloves and activated them, shooting a huge gust of freezing cold in the direction of Lazarus and Myra. The wizard brought his staff down and conjured a shield in front of the both of them, keeping the ice from reaching, but the cold was still slowly seeping through.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 11:28AMMyra held onto lazarus’ arm as she watched his lighting get absorbed but this was different from the gemstones on the necklace they were gonna use it back on them!! she hated the smirk on their cloaked faces …..they came prepared not just for her but for him too…..the cold hit her but not much…she brought the chandelier down on them as she pictured its hold getting ripped ….the beating heart of the palace helped her withstand the cold as she turned to lazarus concerned

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 11:35AMThe crashing chandelier almost hit the two groups, but they dodged out of the way at the last second, dropping their gust of icy wind. The moment it dropped, Lazarus released his shield spell and tapped his staff against the floor. The marble floor seemed to ripple and flow from the point of contact, and then chains covered in runes started to shoot out at the sorcerers from the walls and floor, the transfigured chains being controlled by Lazarus’s magic. The sorcerers weren’t going to go down quietly though, channeling the power of Lazarus own lightning spell and throwing the bolts of electricity back at him. It was too bad for them that the summoned chains were in the way, as the lightning was caught by them and transferred into the floor, where it dispersed harmlessly.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 11:44AMMyra watched fascinated as the marble floor rippled like it were a silk cloth , the chains shooting out of the wall and flying at the sorcerers using this moment myra unleashed her magic to burn their wrists and pull the gloves to her instead…watching their flesh turn black and flake to bits as it burned from within ..lazarus had them grounded now and it was her turn to smirk…

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 11:49AMWith the chains holding them down and keeping their hand from moving, as well as the magic items being taken from them by Myra, the sorcerers were finished. There was nothing left that they could do. The leader of the group spit on the floor in front of them, sneering. “You think you’ve won? The Black Sun will rise, as surely as daybreak. You have only prolonged your fate.” Lazarus scoffed at the man, making the chains tighten slightly and choke the sorcerers until they were gasping. “Beaten enemies should stay silent. Lest they incur the wrath of their opponents.” The wizard turned to Myra as she started burning them, making them scream. “I leave them to you, my dear. Enjoy yourself.” He offered, a cruel grin spreading across his face as he offered up the sorcerer’s lives to her.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 12:59PMMyra watched smirking as lazarus had them held down but the defeated always had to rant of revenge which made her roll her eyes annoyed as she crossed her hands across her chest….the grin he gave her was contagious…it spread onto her lips as she walked closer to the held down and screaming cloaked figures….she tilted her head and made the broken chandelier glass pierce into their chest… “who sent you? and who gave you these weapons im sure you have no sources or power to invent them so dont bother with the filth of twisted words”

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/06 04:52PMEven with their wounds and the incredible pain, the sorcerers refused to give her any information. The leader grit his teeth as blood dripped from his lips. “I will die before I tell you anything, wench. The Black Sun will take you and make you ours. It is only a matter of time.” A pained laugh escaped him, followed by similar laughs from the others. Lazarus stepped up behind Myra then, a scowl on his lips and his red eyes glowing with anger. “Yours?” He hissed, flicking his fingers toward them and making the chains tighten around the burnt sections of skin, drawing out their pain even more. “She is mine and no one, especially not some upjumped spell flingers with fancy toys will take her from me.”

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/06 11:48PMMyra was burning with rage how dare they speak this way ? and that laugh made her cringe she waited for lazarus to finish what he had to say….which made her smile at his words…..it felt good to hear him calling her “mine” turning to him she pulled him into an abrupt kiss while she made shards of glass fly right into the screaming sorcerers mouths….their tongues sliced and they dying slowly

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/07 04:51PMThe sorcerer’s final screams were cut short by the glass cutting their tongues apart and making them drown in blood. A painful and slow death that would linger on even to their spirits. Lazarus paid no mind to the dying spellcasters though, too busy kissing Myra and letting his tongue dance with hers. She was so beautiful when she her passions were riled up, and the vampire could not help but to lightly nick her lip with one fang to send a surge of pleasure through her. And as they embraced and locked lips, the souls of the sorcerers were pulled out of their burnt corpses and into the purple gem at the end of Lazarus’s staff.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/07 10:41PMshe let out a humming moan into his lips as she felt his fang scratch along…holding him with her hands on his shoulders …pulling away only when the bedroom reeked of burnt flesh her face twisted in disgust “i dont like this decor in my bedroom” she cringed and turned away observing the gloves in hand…..in a second she teleported from beside lazarus to the garden down where the other 3 sorcerers lay dead impaled on stone spokes she pulled the necklaces off their hands and teleported back beside her master all taking just 2 minutes and a little smoke

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/07 10:47PM”A simple matter” He muttered, turning his eyes to the smoking corpses as Myra teleported away. Raising his staff, the wizard cast a vanishing spell that seemed to wipe the bodies out of existence without a sound. A wave of the staff over the rest of the room cleared it of smoke and returned the walls and floor to normal, leaving behind the scent of the jasmine incense that filled the rest of the palace. He sighed as he considered that he would still need to repair the front and back doors. Still, this attack wasn’t all negative. More of their enemies were dead, their souls captured for use in later experiments, and the magic items they wore would prove to be interesting to study. As Myra returned, the vampire eyed the necklaces she had retrieved from the bodies below. “All dead, my dear? Good riddance to bad rubbish, I say.”

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/07 10:51PMshe chuckled still observing the necklaces ,looking up she replied “they died a slow death and spoiled our garden with their flowing blood” she handed him the necklaces , magical technology wasnt her department she looked around finding the room back to original and the scent of her signature jasmine and incense back which made her smile “thank you master…this feels better” she walked towards their large bed and sat at the edge with a sigh wondering if this really was their last attack and pondering over their warnings

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/07 10:58PMLevitating the various magical items, the gloves and necklaces and bracelets so that followed after him, Lazarus stepped over toward the bed and knelt down in front of Myra. He gently reached out and raised her chin with two fingers, giving her a confident smile. “Don’t fret, my Myra. These fools could bring hundreds and none would stand a chance against us. Especially against you. You did very well. I’m proud of you.” Then he leaned in and captured her lips again, his praise and a gentle stream of magic flowing into her marks spreading a warm and pleasant feeling through her to help cheer her mood.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/07 11:03PM she looked at him just by tilting her eyes instead of raising her head giving a meek smile as he raised her chin his words speaking not just to her but the palace walls too , wrapping her arms around him as he kissed her with a warmth spreading through her heart and her marks …she pulled away with a smile “im glad i could make you proud master”she pulled him to sit beside her and not kneel in front of her…. “what concerns me is, they are adapting….my fire your lighting the cold spell……but as log as you are beside me i can handle them all ” she held his hand to her cheek

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/07 11:15PM”Yes, they are adapting.” Lazarus sat close beside her, letting the floating magic items arrange themselves neatly in a pile in front of them. “But they do not know what you and I are truly capable of. And every loss they suffer grants us more tools to fight them with. We can turn these weapons against them with ease, perhaps even make them better. And once the storage chamber below the Heart is complete, not even their spells will work for them any longer.” Turning a curious eye toward the balcony and remembering that the bodies were still down in the garden as well, the wizard tapped his staff against the floor once. From outside, the wisps of the sorcerer’s souls flew in through the open balcony and flowed into the gem on his staff. “Now, my dear. How do you feel about trying a bit more fine control of the wards? Try to visualize the bodies and blood outside and use your powers through the wards to make them disappear. You’ll need to be careful not to harm the plants, but I can fix anything that gets damaged.”

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/07 11:22PMMyras eyes followed the floating items as they arranged themselves into a pile ,nodding at his words afterall he did take their souls and that meant took the magic they possessed , staring at the gem as it glowed a purple hue with the 3 new souls added to it looking up at her master when he spoke nodding at his instructions ….her eyes glowed their elemental blue as she visualized the garden back to original and tried to focus on the wards she was connected by soul to …stopping only when she felt no body hitting her magic field through the wards ….she looked at her master with questioning eyes unable to make out if the task was done as they sat in the bedroom and couldnt look at the garden down below

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/07 11:28PMA wave of his staff showed a shimmering window looking out over the garden after Myra’s eyes ceased their beautiful glow, revealing that the bodies and the blood had been wiped clean. The magical beauty of their garden was restored and pristine, with the morning sun shimmering in the crystal clear waters of the oasis. “Excellent. You are getting more familiar with the magic of the oasis and the Palace Heart. Soon it will be as easy as breathing, without even a hint of thought needed.” With her in control of the wards and palace, and Myra under his own care and control, this location would become a magical fortress. “How are you feeling now, my dear? Any strain?”

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/07 11:34PMshe squeaked like a kid getting an A+ from their teacher when she saw the garden back to its original form “great!” she gave a slight jump of happiness ….smiling and all cheerful now ….nodding as her master spoke of how it would only get better “Now? no strain feel as fresh as i woke up ….” she smiled at him it was funny how their moods of rage never lasted longer than the bodies they cleared “thank you master…the heart does keep me strong and fills me up when needed” the thumping of the palace heart did infact feel like a distant drum now…

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/07 11:41PM”Perfection. That means that even with these fools attacks, all is proceeding according to plan. Now, while I go down to the second basement floor and prepare the collection array, why don’t you gather up one of the bottles of the special wine we drank at our first meeting. I think a celebration is in order, don’t you?” His smile matched hers, though perhaps a bit more amorous as he raised her hand in one of his and kissed the back of it.

Apsara / Myra / Saaya
8/07 11:45PMher smile grew into a grin spreading from ear to ear as the mention of the wine got back the memories of her marking making her bite her lower lip “it sure does” he smirked and tilted her head to the side kissing the back of his hand in return before leaning into his ear and whispering slow “i want my master to be here…in the master bedroom in 2 hours then….he is late?..he sleeps alone ” she kissed the spot behind his ear before letting go of his hand and returning to her initial position

Lazarus Gideon Kishimoto
8/07 11:51PM”I’d better get to work then. Far be it for me to keep a lady waiting.” He licked his lip, thinking of her delicious body waiting for him, eager for his touch. “Don’t start without me, my dear.” The wizard then seemed to disappear with a small pop and twist, reappearing on the second basement floor just underneath where the Palace Heart floated on the floor above. Immediately he began concentrating on his transfigurations, raising up large basins from the marble floor and lining the inside of them with countless tiny runes.
