‘The Tower’ (Part 11)

Part 10

“Are you going to be nicer to me today?” You asked, chewing the inside of your lip.

Loki’s attention was fixated in its usual direction. His mind had been racing since the day prior. After his offish comment, you’d refused to speak to him for the remainder of the night, leaving early in the morning the next day. It was a surprise that you’d even returned. Why exactly were you so intent on accompanying him? He was hardly polite to you. If he wasn’t in such a sour mood, Loki might have appreciated your loyalty. Forgiveness was not a trait he was accustomed to encountering – neither in himself or anyone else.

Just for today though, he thought. Just for today, I’ll forgive myself and then maybe she will.

“What of it? What if I decide I shall not watch my tongue?”
“Then I’ll eat this picnic by myself on the journey home.”

Loki’s eyebrow raised.
“You brought a picnic?”

BRUISES

Part Five - Part four here

They were safe, for now. Kai had transported them both to her house, since obviously his was not the safest place to be at the moment. He’d collapsed onto the plush red sofa, sinking back into the cushions and rubbing his bloodied face on the edge of his coat, which he peeled off as the girl started up a crackling fire, her hands shaking as she worked and frantically muttered to herself. Once the room had warmed up, she sunk slowly down on the carpet to face the amber flames, her head bent low. Kai spoke her name, but she didn’t respond for a while.

“I’m gonna kill him,” she said at last.

“What?”

“Your father, I’m gonna kill him,” she repeated.

“Well you already got him pretty good back there,” Kai tried nervously, “that was pretty cool, by the way.”

She stood suddenly, facing the heretic with her eyebrows narrowed, “are we not going to talk about the fact that you cloaked me?”

He chewed his lips, hoping it wouldn’t come up, “I was-” he started.

“Just trying to keep me safe,” she finished with a scoff.

He nodded, fidgeting anxiously with the hem of his black top.

“Clearly I’m not the one who needs to be kept safe,” she grumbled, heading over to the side table beside the couch and promptly filling a cup of bourbon.  Kai outstretched his his hand for the glass, watching in awe as the girl plopped beside him and downed  almost the whole thing herself, face scrunching as she drank the liquid.

“You don’t drink,” he pointed out.

“I do now,” she took another swig.

“Should I be worried?” Kai asked, confused as he watched his perfect girl trash her innocence. 

“Nope,” she said flatly, head pushed back as she nudged the glass into Kai’s hands.

He finished it off, setting the glass down and shifting so he could get a good look at the girl, her eyes closed, hair like a waterfall around her face, lips barely parted.

“You okay?” he whispered, tucking a strand of hair behind her ear.

She blinked her eyes open to look at the heretic’s sad blue ones, “no, you?”

“No,” he said, pulling her gently into his lap, and mindlessly running his slender fingers through her locks. He seemed nervous, new to this whole thing of physical contact. She curled onto her side, snuggling into his front and breathing in his scent, breath settling as she relaxed under his touch.

“Is he going to come after me?” she asked, already knowing the answer.

“He’ll try.”

“Why?” she whimpered.

“He doesn’t know who you are. He just sees a girl I’m with, and makes any assumption. You could be a witch for all he knows. Or you could be any other magical entity that potentially poses a threat to our coven, even though I’m not trying to take it down, it’s what he’d assume,” Kai said, heart aching from seeing her so broken in his arms. “Or maybe he’s exactly right. Maybe he sees a girl, a normal, human girl, and the thought of seeing me even remotely happy makes him so sick that he wants to take that away.”

“Why?” she said again.

“My family thinks I’m an abomination, so, no doubt they’d infer that I’d hurt you, on purpose or not. In a way, I’m actually happy you’re human, or else they might be right.”

“What do you mean?” she asked, rolling on her back so she could look up at him.

“It means I can’t siphon from you, or hurt you by accident.”

“Yeah but I wouldn’t mind,” she shrugged.

Kai traced around her facial features, sighing, “You don’t understand. With my family it’s…it’s like I’m a drug addict or something. I’m always dying for a hit of magic, I need it, and I never want you to see that side of me. Because when I don’t have it I get bad, I do things I wouldn’t usually do. And I don’t mean to hurt them, I just…” he trailed off with a shake of his head.

The girl sat up now, lacing her fingers through Kai’s and leaning back in distress. “I’m sorry,” is all she managed. 

“I need to leave,” Kai said at last.

“I’m not sure that’s safe,” she started.

“Look, my dad is going to do a tracking spell to find me, which will lead him right to you. If I leave now, he won’t be able to find you. The spell requires someone’s possession, but he doesn’t own anything of yours, so as long as you’re away from me-”

“Don’t do that!” she exclaimed, standing and pacing with agitation, Kai rising from the couch.

“What?”

“That thing, where you try and push me away to keep me safe. It won’t work, Malachai. Did you learn nothing from back there in the forest?! I don’t want to let you out there alone knowing that what happened to you could-” she paused, choking on a sob, “could happen again.”

Flashes of Kai’s bloodied and lifeless form in the snow flashed back to her. The scars she saw in the bathtub burned in her memory. And those bruises, the ones she saw the first night with him, suddenly they were all flooding back. And it was too much for her, as she went sinking to the floor and collapsing into a wave of fresh tears. Her body shook with every sob, face buried in her knees as she felt a set of arms come slinking around her from behind, holding her body against his chest. Kai rest his lips atop her forehead, rocking her slowly in his arms and whispering lightly to her until she regained her ability to breathe. She blinked through her blurry vision, hand wrapping around Kai’s arms as she stared at the glowing flames in front of her, mind spinning.

“There’s something I need to tell you,” Kai whispered after a long silence. “My family, they’ve been on edge more than usual recently, because-” he paused and thought about a way to phrase his next words. “Remember when I told you about how the twins merge?”

She nodded and blinked up at his worried blue eyes.

“Well, it happens, when they come of age,” he gulped anxiously.

Red blood began dripping from Kai’s nose, and he looked completely unfazed as it spilled across his full lips and down his chin like a faucet.

“Kai!” she gasped, turning and grabbing his arms, “what’s happening!?”

Kai gave a weak laugh, blood still coming as he wiped it away on his sleeve with a lame chuckle.

“Kai!” she shook him with worry.

“Probably a birthday gift,” he said with a twitch of his lips.

“Birthday gift?”

“I probably should have told you,” he said, eyes flickering up to the clock that hung on the wall, striking just past midnight. “I’m twenty two now.”    

“Oh my god,” she breathed in denial, “that means-”

“They won’t let us do the merge,” he shook his head, suddenly releasing a groan of pain, hands coming flying to his head as he shrunk down in aguish.

“Malachai!?”

“I need-” he coughed out, “magic.”

She silently panicked, “I-I don’t know how to help!”

“Papa’s sending a warning,” Kai groaned, rolling to his backside on the carpet and panting out, vision going fuzzy.

She slid next to him, hands on either side of his face, “Kai, stay with me! Siphon from the vampire blood you gave me!” She fumbled for the vial around her neck, watching Kai’s eyes grow wide in shock.

He let out a scream of anguish before going still all at once, his eyes focusing back on her, chest rattling with each breath he gulped down. He sat up, rubbing at his temples, his eyes dark, lacking their usual glow. He growled, almost barely audibly, “where’s the necklace?”

Her eyebrows furrowed as she reached for her neck, grasping at nothing there and instantly feeling her heart sink.

Where’s the stupid necklace?” he hissed, his nostrils flaring.

“I-I don’t know,” she said, “It must’ve fallen off earlier or something. I’m so-”

Kai’s hands flew to her mouth, muffling her shocked yelp, his eyes boring into her own, “he’s here.”

Title: One More Step
Character: Danny Rand
A/n: This took waaaaaay too long to get out and I humbly apologize for my incompetence, bUT this was a super good request and I wanted it to be a+.

“(Y/n),” Danny said, gently shaking your shoulder to try and stir you from your sleep. “(Y/n).” He repeated, this time drawing it out and poking various areas on your face.

You slowly opened your eyes, giving him a blank look, when you noticed Danny was actually up before you, you sat up. “What time is it?”

Danny shook his head. “Doesn’t matter! Come on, get up. We’re going somewhere today!”

You threw off the blankets and noticed Danny was practically bouncing with excitement, already fully dressed even if his hair was slightly more tousled than usual. “Where are we going?”

“It’s a surprise, but don’t worry, you’ll like it.” He said cheekily, giving you a wink before letting you get changed.

It almost never took you long to get dressed, you had developed it down to a science ever since college. But when you pushed open the door, Danny was sitting down on the sofa, apparently talking to someone on the phone.

You were about to return to the room to give him some privacy, but Danny noticed you out of the corner of his eye and motioned you over.

“Who were you talking to?” You asked, tucking your shirt into your jeans while approaching him.

“Joy.” He answered, placing his phone into his pocket.

“Oh, what did she want?”

Danny chuckled a little. “Well, she found out about the whole instance with the Hand breaking into your shop, and to say she was pissed I hadn’t told her was an understatement,” He mused, getting a laugh out of you. “But apparently she had been tracking down one of Madame Gao’s men and basically threatened them if they ever came near you again.”

Your shoulders perked up. “Wait, does that mean I can go back to my shop?” You asked, trying to control the excitement in your voice.

Danny nodded, and barely had time to speak again before you tackled him into a hug.

“That’s great! Can we go now? I should get my things, then we can go. Wait right here! I’ll be back!” You said so quickly Danny almost missed it.

He watched you sprint up the stairs in record time.

You pushed open both of the doors to your shop, smiling brightly at the interior. It was a closed day, but you were ready to spend the next several days completely absorbed in your work.

“I’ve missed her so much,” You said, running your hand along the shelves. “I don’t think I’m
gonna go home for weeks.”

Danny placed his arm over your shoulders. “You call your shop a ‘her’?”

“Of course, why wouldn’t I?” You said, tossing your things on the sofa and running to turn on some of the main floor lights.

You had several rows of string lights littered all over the store, and Danny jumped a little when they all suddenly turned on, drenching everything in a light hue.

“Isn’t she pretty?” You asked, returned to his side while you rest your elbow on his shoulder.

For the next couple hours, Danny listened to go on about how happy you were to be back in your store, and how it felt like years since you had been there.

Not long, the sky started to get dark outside, the lights from the shop becoming more saturated in color. Danny felt an awkward tension settle over him, but you hadn’t seemed to noticed. A plethora of paperwork was scattered around you while you were busy filling them out.

Now that everything was clear on your end, you wouldn’t have to stay with him anymore.

And it bothered Danny far more than he’d care to admit.

He didn’t doubt Joy, but past events have proven that the safest place for you was by his side.

And Danny liked having you there.

Sure, watching you stare sadly outside the window of his apartment while you lived there in some odd guilded cage wasn’t the best arrangement. He wanted you to have your shop and your life, but he didn’t want you to go away.

What upset him though, was how happy you seemed with the situation. He probably got boring after awhile, but he didn’t think he was sobad so as not to elicit some kind of reaction. Your time spent together was probably the most pleasant experience he’s had since returning to the city. Perhaps it was just false hope to assume you felt the same.

“Dan,” You called, looking at him with a quizzical brow. “You okay? You blanked out on me.”

He shrugged and chuckled. “It’s nothing, I think I should probably be headeing out.”

There was a flicker of emotion that crossed your face, and maybe it had only occurred to you know the gravity of the situation.

“Oh, yeah I guess it’s gotten pretty late, hasn’t it?” You said, standing up from your chair and walking over to him.

There as a brief pause, the sounds of cars rolling past and the very subtle hum of music coming from a small club a couple buildings down.

“I just wanted to say thank you, for saving my life and letting me stay at your place till the whole thing blew over,” Your fingers were fumbling together as you tried to get your thoughts out in an eloquent manner. “I was probably the biggest pain, so thanks for putting up with me. And stop by whenever you want, really.”

Danny tilted his head. “You shouldn’t be thanking me, I let you stay with me because I wanted to keep you safe and I wanted you there,” He cleared his throat. “I still want you there, actually. You make the place feel a lot more like home when you’re there and I like the way you think and talk,” He finished with a small laugh. “But if you wanna go, don’t let me stop you.”

You gave him a big smile and jumped up to wrap your arms around his neck, giving him a tight hug.

Danny welcomed the embrace, holding on just as tight and basking in your presence for as long as you could.

It was silent again.

“I like being with you, too,” You answered, hopping down to your feet. “But I think, for now at least, I should stick around here, get some stuff figured out and then we can talk about it again. Sound good?”

The fact that you’d even consider staying with him long-term was all Danny needed. So happily, he nodded his head.

“Sounds perfect.”

SOUL MATE MASTERLIST


There wasn’t enough force in the universe to keep Kylo asleep, his nightmares attacking him on repeat, it was almost like all the ones he prevented before came crashing down all at once. Sitting with his back hunched forward, the heel of his palms rubbed against his eyes as he had hopped that would stop the crying. It wasn’t even midnight, and yet, for the past few hours he could have sworn he had over a dozen nightmares. Throwing his head back as he stared up at the dull ceiling, a huff left his lips as his heaving chest slowly subsided. He couldn’t help but think of the past he had with you, it was wonderful, it was everything he ever wanted–minus the sneaking around, but that made the experience more exhilarating–and he only regretted the turn he took.
