1 Fire and Ice on Sat Nov 10, 2018 8:47 pm

First topic message reminder :

The summer court of the fae was still in the throws of the summer solstice feast, despite their queen having fallen ill only a few short days ago. The smell of fresh flowers and apple cider wafted through the air, it was a scent even a human nose would have followed to its blissful end. But not this fae. No, Demetria despised it. Her delicate nose was wrinkled slightly at the smell that assaulted it as the heels of her boots made a dull click against the warm wooden floors with each stride she took. The summer palace had never held any beauty for her. It was everything her own home in the winter court wasn’t, and was everything that humans loved about the spring and summer. The winter palace was forever scented with pine and had the same silence to it that came with a night of fresh snowfall. If not for Yule, she doubted the humans would ever have worshipped her own people at all. But here she was, approaching their banquet hall, silken hair as dark as the long winter nights swaying with each purposeful stride she took. The moment the doors opened, all the frivolity turned suddenly silent, fae grabbing hold of the ones next to them as though she were some kind of harbinger. 
“Oh please, don’t stop on my account.” Her velvety voice purred, lips pulled into a sardonic smile.

“I didn’t ask, because I already knew the answer. I couldn’t put you in danger because I have no self control.” Aster breathed, a rough thumb wiping away the tear as he took Autimn’s face between his hands and stole another kiss while her eyes were closed.

Autumn returned the kiss, unaware that the snowflakes were melting around them turning into the fall leaves she loved so much. Above them a crow took to the sky, planning on reporting to it's mistress just exactly what the winter prince was up to.

Demetria already knew. There was a warmth in her chest that was spreading, the same warmth that Aster had confessed to Autumn that he had been longing for since leaving his true home behind. However, unlike her twin, Demetria did not enjoy it. She was on her feet within the walls of the winter palace, pacing like a caged tiger as she tried to will this god awful feeling away. 

“Come home with me...” Aster whispered against Autumn’s lips, though he didn’t mean the veil.

Ash was feeling the opposite. Even as he sat on his human lover's bed. He tried to wake Lillian with purring kisses though his chest was heavy and filled with ice.

"I thought you'd never ask." Autumn breathed against his lips, her fingers sliding through his hair.

Lillian’s long lashes fluttered slightly as the fae prince brushed his warm lips against her own. Slowly she began to smile before looking up at her lover with sleepy eyes. “You’re early.” She breathed gently, reaching up and tucking some of Ash’s golden hair behind his ear. 

Aster had taken so many human women to his bed in an attempt to chase away the cold that he couldn’t even count them any more. But the feeling he got as he slid an arm around Autumn and guided her to his waiting motorcycle was different. This wasn’t replacing the cold with something else... this was simply filling the hole inside himself with the very thing that was missing.

"I couldn't wait any longer." Ash breathed, offering her a gentle smile. "Lil, there is something I need to tell you." He went on, resting his hand over hers. " Promise me you'll stay calm."

Autumn balked when she saw the motor cycle. She'd never seen anything like it before. She certainly wasn't about to touch it, let alone get on it.

Lillian was very much awake now and sat back on her elbows as she pulled her hands from Ash’s, alarm clear in her wide grey eyes as she looked up at him. “Ash... you’re scaring me.” She breathed, well aware that he rarely spoke so seriously to her. “Oh god... there’s someone else, isn’t there? You’re leaving me!” She wailed, though knew she had no right to, it wasn’t as though they had anything serious going on. Her only thoughts were of very human things he would need to talk to her about. 

Asher halted suddenly when he realised Autumn had dug her heels in and was no longer allowing him to lead her. “What’s the matter?” He asked in confusion, forgetting that what seemed mundane to him was entirely new to the fae princess.

In that moment, Ash was changing his mind. He was considering a rather dumpy looking fae to marry who didn't act so childish. But he couldnt picture her, she always looked like Demetria. He was tired. Perhaps that was all this amounted to.

Autumn yanked her arm free and picked up a rock. She threw it at the strange metal beast with one eye. "Go away!" She shouted at it. "There is nothing for you here!"

Lillian was quick to narrow her eyes now; something had changed. Ash was usually so care free with her, leaving all his responsibilities at her door to spend his nights in her bed. “Where have you been? I missed you.” She breathed a moment later, her keen gaze having spotted the ebony feather poking out of his shirt pocket. It was a little too close to his heart for her liking.

“Hey! Easy there!” Aster was quick to run to his previous ‘beast’ and use his sleeve to rub down the spot where the rock hat hit it.

Ash sighed softly. "Don't tell me you have been lonely." He muttered, his long fingers brushing through the sheets beside her.

Autmn had picked up another rock, prepared to throw it as Aster rubbed the beast down. He must have lost his mind.

Lillian sat all the way up now and deposited herself in Ash’s lap. She didn’t like the thought of him saving keepsakes from any other lovers he may have. “No more so than you, it would seem.” She breathed against his lips. 

Aster turned in time to see Autumn pick up the rock and gently slid his fingers around her wrist. “As much as I appreciate you... saving me, I don’t think that’s really needed.” He teased, kissing her temple gently.

"Lillian..." Ash chuckled, pulling away from the kiss. "I believe my little kitten is jealous."

"Aster!" The little red head cried out. "Have you lost your mind? I don't understand! "

Lillian pouted slightly, then grinned. “You’ve seen you, right? Can you blame me?” She asked, fingers again toying with his hair. “Who is she?” She asked a moment later, trying her very best to sound uninterested.

“Of course I have.” Aster teased, ruffling Autumn’s hair affectionately. “But in all seriousness, this is how I get around. Think of it as... my wings.” He added with a chuckle.
