Toxic Love

Post by Kittenboxxing on Fri Apr 21, 2017 9:47 pm

A Dream for Darius:
It had been many days since Darius had seen battle. His skin itched, longing for the clashing of weapons reverberating through his body and to feel his blood pumping fast through his veins. But all he was given was peace. A cool night breeze drifting through the window. The moon was new, and he could barely see his master and their companion in the dark. He caught a glimpse of movement, what at first he thought must be a shiver taking the child who was supposed to rule him. The boy was not bad. He had a quick mind, and had been trying to teach Darius to better express his thoughts. He showed him many cards with letters, numbers, and pictures. He was persistent. As his mind faded into the memories of the past few days, Darius' head lolled to the side and he yawned. He was suprised by the action. He did not usually sleep; but before he knew it he was being pulled down into the land of dreams as his body slumped in his chair.

Aaron found himself in a soft bed. His bed. His eyes and body were heavy, but he could feel someone over him. In him. Finally he was able to lift his eyelids, and he could see his husband above him. Ah, this wasn't the first time this had happened. His body gained more feeling as he felt the mana coming into him. He moaned softly and tried to move his hands to wrap around Julian but they were bound. His face fell, as much as it could. He was still having trouble controlling his muscles from whatever Julian had put in his drink.

His husband chuckled and nipped his ear after giving him one last kiss, and left the bed..but Aaron still felt hands on him. The room was dark, but as his eyes lulled around he could see figures.
This...this had never happened before, but for some reason felt familiar. The many figures closed in and men and women took their turns with him as he struggled. He didn't know these people. But Julian was next to him, whispering calm words and urging him to take the energy the strangers offered. He had no choice but to take it as he groaned and struggled against his restraints, but the drugs in his system made him no match for even the ropes, let alone the several people on and around him. He heard them asking what boundaries they could cross, and pleased laughter as Julian assented to whatever they wished. They continued through the whole night, until just before dawn. His body was burning now. He still couldn't move but the overflow of mana set his nerves on fire. Every injury he had sustained was even more painful than usual. Even the gentlest of touches caused him to wince; and these people were not gentle.He finally heard the guests leaving as a small amount of daylight peeked under the drawn curtains. His husbands weight alighted on the bed as a cool hand ghosted over him, and Aaron fell into sleep.

When he awoke in the morning, still in a good amount of pain, Julian was there. He handed him some water and aspirin, "You had a rough night last night." a sympathetic smile followed the comment, accompanied with the brush of cool fingers along his cheek.

He sipped the water, throat rough and dry, "What happened?" it was hard to swallow the pills. His throat felt horrible.

"We got a little drunk and had some fun. But you had some terrible nightmares. I've been trying to keep you from thrashing all night..."

Aaron leaned back onto the pillows. Had it been a dream then? Now he wasn't sure...

Julian stood, giving his husband a kiss on the forehead, "Rest just a bit longer, but I have everything ready for your trip. I'll get your things packed. I hate to make you go, but time is of the essence."

Oh yes. He had gotten command seals yesterday. How could he have forgotten?

Darius awoke suddenly, confused and disoriented, but he quickly realized where he was. Aaron was still sleeping, somewhat fitfully.

Darius frowned down at his Master. He had been getting the hint of his Julian's relationship for some time, and that sealed things. Troubling. Very troubling.

He wanted to help, but his Mad Enhancement frustrated most attempts at communication. He wondered if there was any way to tell Aaron how he felt about it all. As he ruminated over it, he patiently waited for Aaron to wake up.

Aaron woke a few minutes later, eyes wide. He looked around the room, breathing quickly. Seeing that it was only a dream, he let out a sigh and rubbed his eyes, rising to go to the restroom. He cast a look at Julian before he left the bed. He was still unsettled and unsure about what was real and what was a dream...

Darius waited until Aaron was finished in the bathroom before appearing in front of him in the hallway. For the first time, the Berserker looked somewhat awkward.

The Servant thought hard about how to best get his point across. He pointed in the direction of the bedroom and growled low under his breath; Aaron could vaguely tell he was trying to indicate Julian. It took some time, but he finally managed to put together the simplest word he could.

"Bad."

Aaron looked at him for a moment with confusion before he realized what he meant, "Oh! Oh no no no it's okay. I think. I'm pretty sure they're just dreams. That happens with masters and servants right? We can share dreams? So it probably wasn't real..." he patted Darius' arm, feeling touched at the concern, and proud that he used a word.

Darius shook his head vigorously, then knelt to put his face more on Aaron's level. He took one of Aaron's hands in his. He kept trying to speak, but couldn't make the words come.

Finally, growing frustrated, he beckoned for Aaron to follow him. He led his Master to a bookshelf, pulling out a book that Darius himself had purchased when they had their first foray into the city when they were staying in Hawaii. It was a book about Alexander the Great's life.

Carefully, he opened to a page and pointed to a quote from Alexander himself: "…and of all the Hellenic peoples, join your fellow-soldiers and entrust yourselves to me, so that we can move against the barbarians and liberate ourselves from the Persian bondage, for as Greeks we should not be slaves to barbarians."

He placed his finger on the page to carefully outline the words he wanted to communicate to Aaron: "...we should not be slaves."

"Well I'm not a slave! Far from it! I'd consider myself a bit domestic I guess since I don't have to work but I'm far from a slave..." his gaze drifted to the side. It was clear from his tone he was trying just as hard to convince himself as he was Darius.

Darius knew it wouldn't be easy, but he had to help however he could.

With a stern frown, he knelt down to Aaron's level again, taking his hand, balling it into a fist, and holding it against his heart. "S... trong."

Surely it sounded easy from a man who ruled an empire, but not all struggles were won on the battlefield. Darius saw a subjugated man, a man that needed to be free.

"Aww...big guy," Aaron gave his servant a hug. He didn't really know what to think at the moment, but seeing Darius work so hard to communicate must mean something. He pulled back and smiled at him, "Look. I'm just not sure what is...really going on. Just give me some time to suss out the details okay? Is that good enough?"

Darius nodded happily. He pointed to Aaron, then slapped his own chest, trying to communicate that he would take care of Aaron. He didn't want to have to kill Julian--it probably wouldn't Aaron gain the confidence he needed--but he feared not being able to hold back if Julian did anything violent.
