Daloki, Part 8: Hushabye (2)

(What follows is the second part of a blog written by Elexin and Daloki, originally published on Rolepages.com.)

Elexin and Daloki spent her last evening together.  She liked odd movies from Earth, so he had let her pick the vid. She had chosen a sort of movie about hope, and she had actually teared up a bit as a song was sung, snuggling deeper into the crook of his arm, and he didn’t mind that. He sniffed her hair, trying to remember her scent, feeling her life force, and when he knew she was relaxed had gently Dominated her and took a quick copy of her with a soul stone. He wanted something, anything to remember her by.

The next evening when they entered the tavern, she looked as giddy as a schoolgirl, taking and holding the attention he was adorning her with.

They had been talking quietly for some time when Elexin smiled, though his eyes seemed a bit distant, almost sad. Then he looked deeply into Daloki’s eyes. “Care for a dance, Doll?”

A smile broke over her face. “I’d love to.” Continue reading

Daloki – Part 7: Hushabye (1)

It was his fault: she was not to blame for what she became, and all the pain and sorrow she had inflicted were actually blights on his fragile soul.  His mind went back to their first meeting. He actually had thought she was an arrogant bitch, but something about her, something familiar had drawn his attention back to her. Asmo’s intervention didn’t help matters, along with his own tenuous grip on reality, it had spelled trouble from the start, BUT – something was there. Everyone knows that a love potion doesn’t work if something isn’t there to spark it anyway, even if they hadn’t realized it at the time.

Daloki – Part 6: The Sabbat

Daloki’s relationship with Elexin had been deteriorating for some time. She had learned of many lies he’d told her – especially his saying he’d had only two wives before her, the dragon Fierra and the human Marlena, both deceased. In fact, she learned, he had several wives in different time periods – wives he still visited. Then, too, it seemed that the love potion was finally beginning to wear off.

Yet they were getting along fairly well when several important vampires disappeared, kidnapped by an unknown group. One of these was the Archon of Elexin’s Clan, the Ventrue. Elexin believed that the Sabbat – an organization of renegade vampires – was behind the kidnappings, and together he and Daloki put together a plan that would – they hoped – allow her to get information on the Archon’s whereabouts. But to do this, she would have to be initiated into the Sabbat.

This was probably the second dumbest move she’d made since coming to Hellifyno (after marrying Elexin). Continue reading
