Chapter Twenty Three: I Wanna Do Real Bad Things With You
As Alesana was putting away the ingredients they used and cleaning out the contents left in the bowl, Emmalina couldn't help but noticed the very large wolf walking towards them. "Emmalina there is no need to be afraid. It's just Dorian in his wolf form." Emmalina bent down as the wolf stopped in front of her. She raised her hand slightly and Dorian put his nose under her hand to let her know it was okay to pet him.
"Amazing." She breathed out as she continued petting the wolf and starred into his intelligent eyes. Dorian let out a noise that almost sounded like a laugh.
The wolf backed up from her and Emmalina watched in amazement as he shifted from wolf to human. Though now she had a naked Dorian in front of her and her amazement soon turned to discomfort. Don't look down! Whatever you do, DO NOT look down.
Alesana started laughing. "Dorian you are making her very uncomfortable."
"I'm sorry but we don't exactly believe in that whole modesty nonsense. Especially when we are naked half the time...you'll get use to it."
"I'm not so sure about that." Emmalina said, keeping her eyes so focused on his face they were starting to sting. She then turned her attention to Alesana when Dorian announced he was going up stairs for clothes and food. "Do you know what my powers are now since we unbound them?"
"Yes, I know what yours, your mother's and your brother's powers are. My ability is quite handy."
"Do you mind sharing what they are?" Emmalina asked.
"Alright fine, I was hoping you would want to find out on your own but considering none of you know much about magic, one of you might hurt someone or worse use your powers in public and cause an uproar. You have two, both are mental abilities. The first one is Necromancy. That means you have the ability to mentally control the dead. That includes ghosts and yes, vampires. I suggest trying to use that on your vampire to see if he is truly your mate. But do it before you blood him because once his heart starts beating he will be considered among the living. Your second ability is Astral Projection. Basically you will be able to project your consciousness into an astral form outside of your body. Your physically body will slump over, fall or remain still until you return. A warning to you with this power though, your physical body will be unprotected when you project yourself. Several witches have died while they were astral projecting and they are now lost souls because their soul did not die along with their physical body. Make sure you are always in a safe place before you use this ability."
"Seeing as I don't even know how to use it, that shouldn't be a problem."
"But you will. I can give you books on each of the powers your family possesses. Emily had a total of five abilities which makes her the 3rd person in our history with so many. They seemed to have separated themselves out among the three of you. Which brings me to your mother. She has two as well, one mental, one physical. Her mental ability is Telekinesis, which I'm sure you know is moving objects with your mind. Her second, physical one, is Levitation, she will be able to manipulate gravity to the extent where she will be able to rise in the air. Your brother has the most deadly power of you all....well unless you decided to make a vampire army." Alesana teases Emmalina.
"No, I don't think I'd know what to do with a vampire army. So what are my brother's powers?
"He only has one and it's a physical ability. Molecular Combustion. He will be able to speed up molecules in an object or life form so it explodes. You can see why that one could get a little dangerous."
"Are you telling me he could accidentally blow up his wife?"
"Yes, that is quite possible if she isn't his mate."
"Oh my God! I've gotta go. I need to go home to my Mom and try to explain everything. We need to get my brother away from, well....everyone. Thank you, Alesana for everything."
"No problem. Here are the books on each of your powers and here is my cell phone number in case any problems arise."
"Thank you. I may need your help with my Mom and brother so please stay by your phone."
"I will. Good luck."
"Thanks, I have a feeling I'll probably need." She said as she rushed out the door to head home.
Back at home, Amelia was annoyed that Donovan left dirty dishes on the counter.....again. How hard is it to clean up your own damn mess? All he has to do is put the stupid plate... Amelia's train of thought was interrupted by a strange surge of electricity in her body. What the hell was that? Oh God I'm not pregnant again am I? She looked at the dirty plate again and was annoyed with Donovan all over again. I swear if I am, he is a dead man. She glared at the plate and threw her hands up, fed up with constantly cleaning after everyone until suddenly it rose up and zoomed across the kitchen, breaking into pieces as it shattered against the wall. She starred at the pieces trying to make sense of what just happened. What the fuck was that!? Maybe it was a ghost? After all vampires exist, why not ghosts too? Oh lord, I've gone crazy. I've been hit in the head too many times from fighting vampires and now I'm starting to have hallucinations.
Amelia's cell phone starts to ring. She mindlessly hits the answer button and puts it to her ear. Dawn is on the other line frantically ranting. She can half make out what she is saying but she got the jest of it. "What do you mean he blew up the microwave with his hands?" Amelia asks and wonders if someone if playing a joke on her. All she gets is more frantic ramblings. Then she hears explosions and the line goes dead. "Dawn? Hello?" "Dammit!"
Emmalina walks into the door to hear her mother cursing at her phone. "Mom? Are you alright?"
"No, Emmmalina. Something is wrong with me and Mason. We need to go to the hospital.....or the Insane Asylum. I'm not sure which one yet."
"No you don't. This is my fault. I should have talked to the two of you before I made the decision but I wanted to get it over with."
"Emmalina what the hell are you talking about?"
She took a deep breath before she answered, "Mom, we aren't human, or at least not fully. We're....witches."
Amelia busts out laughing. "I knew this was some kind of joke. Though I am curious how you sent the plate flying across the room."
"It's not a joke...and I didn't do that, you did."
Amelia surveyed her daughter's face. She looked...guilty but more importantly she looked dead serious. "Emmalina, what have you done to us?"
"We were born this way! It's who we are. Our powers were bound but I got a little help to get them back."
"This is...not real. This cannot be happening."
"I'm sorry but you are going to have to get over it for a second. We need to go to Mason's house NOW. Dawn could be in danger."
"Explosions......on the phone." Amelia muttered.
"What!?" Oh God, if he kills her, he will never forgive me, nor will I. I need to get there right no.....
Emmalina's body slumped to the floor. Amelia bent down, terrified that she might have just watched her daughter die. "Emmalina?" She asked as she leaned in. She breathed in a sigh of relief as she watched Emmalina's chest rise and fall. "Emmalina!? Wake up!" But it was no use. She wouldn't budge.
One second she was in front of her mother and now she was standing in front of brother. Oh my God! I did it! "Where did you come from!?" Mason asked hysterically. Emmalina took in her brother's appearance. He was a mess. There was soot all over the front of his shirt, he was scared and looked like he was on the verge of losing it. "Emmalina, stay away from me! I'm not very safe to be around." Emmalina felt worse then she did before. This was her doing. They might have been born witches but they weren't raised as witches. Neither of them knew exactly what they were doing and poor Mason had the short stick for now. She knew if he learned to control his power, he would be very deadly.
"Mason, are you alright? Is Dawn okay?"
"Barely. I told her to run. I have no idea where she is." He said almost in a daze.
"MASON! Snap out of it!"
"I'm sorry, something happened to me. I don't know what but you need to leave before I blow you up like I did the microwave, the end table, the dresser....and the bed."
"Oh God, Mason. I'm sorry. I know what happened to you. Go change your clothes and I'll explain everything."
As he left to change his clothes, Emmalina walked over to the counter. It had scorch marks all around where the microwave was. She looked down at the scattered pieces of burnt plastic around the floor. My God.... Mason walked into the kitchen in fresh clothes. "These are the only clothes I have left. The rest of them are scattered in pieces." He said as he joined her beside the counter.
"We'll get you some new clothes."
"Yeah, new clothes..." He said as he starred at the spot where the microwave use to be.
"Mason, this is my fault. I should have warned you but I didn't know it would be this disastrous."
"Warned me about what? What's wrong with me?"
"Mason we aren't exactly regular humans. We are actuall..........
Emmalina vanished right before his eyes. He started doubting whether he had really spoken to her are not. Mason finally broke.
Emmalina was sitting on the floor in their house. Dammit! I didn't want to come back yet! "Oh thank God!" Amelia exclaimed as Emmalina stood to her feet. "What happened? I tried to wake you up but nothing worked. I even slapped you and still...nothing!!"
"I don't have time to explain. We need to go to Mason's now. I have to help him, I have to make this right."
Emmalina was heading out the door with Amelia on her heels. She grabbed the bag of books that Alesana gave her and ran outside. They jumped in a taxi and she gave the driver her brother's address along with a "Step on it!" for good measure.
When they arrived to Mason's house he was still in the same spot she had left him. When she walked up to him, he recoiled from her. "No, you aren't real."
She put her hand on his shoulder. "It's me Mason, Emmalina."
"Yes but you were not here, then you were and then you weren't again."
Emmalina pinched the bridge of her nose as her mother joined them. "Oh Mason. What happened here?" Amelia asked.
"Okay, everyone follow me to the living room if you want to know what's happening to you." Emmalina said.
Emmalina lead the way into the living room and sat on the couch. Amelia and Mason quietly joined her. "I need you both to have an open mind alright? Especially you Mason since you don't even know about vampires yet."
"EMMALINA!" Amelia shrieked in horror.
"Mom please, you just have no idea what else is out there. Now are you going to listen or not?" Amelia nodded and Emmalina continued. "Firstly, there are tons of supernatural creatures in this world. They refer to themselves as Loreans because they are part of The Lore, which is like their community or something like that. We are also part of the supernatural world. We were born this way. Centuries ago, our great, great, great whatever grandmother was a witch with five magic abilities. She lived through the Salem witch trails and decided to bind her and and her children's magic to help hide them from persecution. But she actually bound future generations as well. Which is why we had no powers or know anything about our heritage. Earlier today I met with a witch and we reversed the spell, giving us all what we were meant to have to begin with."
"I think I'm gonna throw up." Mason said as he grabbed his head. "Emmalina this is crazy. I feel like I should be on medication for even discussing this."
"Oh really? Because the pieces of microwave all over your floor seem like vital proof to me."
Mason turned to his sister, letting his anger out. "Yes there are pieces of microwave on my floor and that's YOUR fault! You have ruined my life! How am I supposed to do anything if I keep blowing shit up!"
"I'm sorry. I should have warned you....both of you. But you were already born this way! That's not my fault. It's what you are."
"No. I didn't have this problem before you danced naked in the forest or whatever the fuck it is you did!"
"That's not what I did. When you learn to control your ability and learn all there is to learn, you won't be so angry."
"Well this is not the time that I'm so fucking gracious to you for ruining my life."
"Mason that's enough!" said Amelia, raising her voice.
"Look Emmalina, I'm sorry. But you can't blame me for being angry. My life is completely turned up said down because of this. I might as well not even bother replacing the furniture, I will probably just blow it up again." Mason said.
"Mason, I promise this will get better. You'll come around, it will just take some time."
Emmalina turned to her mother, bracing herself for her wrath too. But it didn't come. Amelia was very calm when she asked, "So exactly what are we capable of now?"
"You're not mad?" Emmalina asked, surprised.
"Oh don't get me wrong, I'm pissed that you went behind my back and made a life altering decision for the three of us but if I can handle vampires, I can handle witches."
Emmalina saw Mason wince out of the corner of her eye when their mother said the words vampires and witches. "Again....I'm sorry. But to answer your question you and I have two powers and Mason has one, for the grand total of five."
"The same five that our ancestor had?" Amelia asked.
"Yes, exactly. You have Telekinesis and Levitation. You'll be able to move objects or people with your mind and be able to kind of...float in the air. Mason's power is called Molecular Combustion and we've all seen what that does. But Mason you need to be careful, you can blow up people too."
"That's just fucking great. Too bad you didn't tell me sooner because I almost blew up my wife!" Mason said as he scowled.
Emmalina ignored that fact that Mason could use his powers on Dawn. She wasn't going to be the one to tell him the part about mates. "What powers do you have Emmalina?" Amelia asked curiously.
"Astral Projection is one of them. That's what happened when I fainted at the house and Mason that's why I just appeared and disappeared in front of you. That was my astral self, not my physical body. My second power is Necromancy. Basically it means I can control the dead."
"You mean like zombies?" Mason asked.
"No. Like ghosts and vampires."
"Vampires?" Amelia asked with interest. "So you're saying you can tell a vampire to do something and he has no choice but to follow your command?"
"Yes." Emmalina said, not really liking where this conversation was going.
"Very interesting. That would be quite handy in my line of work." Amelia said with a smirk and she already had one particular vampire in mind.
"Why would you need to control the dead? You work at the Police Station." Mason asked, confused.
"Oh sweety. There is a lot I need to tell you since the cat's out the bag."
"I'm not even sure I want to know any more."
Emmalina grabbed the books out of the bag she'd thrown on the floor. She put her's on the coffee table while she handed them theirs. "Here. These will help you control your abilities."
Amelia flipped opened the book and started skimming the pages. Mason was debating on whether he should smack his sister in the head with his but thought against it and open his as well. Emmalina couldn't help put grab hers and do a little reading on Necromancy. She wanted to know if Sebastian was really her mate. She was his and she knew you only had one but she wasn't sure if it was a mutual bond. She read through the pages, trying to figure out how to wield her new power.
Amelia abruptly looked up from her book to say, "We can't tell your Father about any of this."
"What? Why?" Emmalina asked.
"Because I don't think he could handle it."
"Mom I don't think you can hide this from him. I plan on telling Dawn everything." Mason said.
"I just....can't we just keep it quiet for now?"
"Fine. I just hope this doesn't blow up in your face. I probably won't be there so the chances of that happening are probably slim though."
All three of them laughed. Emmalina knew Mason was still pissed off but Alesana said they would come around. I just hope it's sooner rather than later. They each focused on their books once more. Emmalina glanced out the window and noticed it was already dark. "Well, I have to get to work."
"You're just leaving?" Mason asked.
"I have a job. I can't put that on hold. Clients are depending on me. Mom can you stay with Mason and help him?"
"Yeah. Maybe we can see if we can reach Dawn to make sure she's okay. Do you want to do that Mason?"
"Yeah. We can try to reach her on her cell phone."
"Alright, I'll see you guys tomorrow." Emmalina said as she walked out the door.
As soon as she walked through Sebastian's front door he said, "I see you went through with the unbinding spell."
"How did you know that?"
"Because I could smell you from half a mile away." He said with a half grin. "How does it feel?"
"Good. I like it but my brother is having a very difficult time."
"Well, his ability is Molecular Combustion and he keeps blowing up everything."
Sebastian raised his eyebrows. "That is a very impressive power."
"Well at the moment he doesn't think so."
Okay, here goes nothing. Emmalina mentally prepared herself for what she wanted Sebastian to do. She envisioned in her mind and couldn't help but smile at the image. Sebastian, take off your shirt. Nothing. She could feel the energy reaching out to try to take control but it just bounced right off of him.
"Emmalina? Are you alright?" Sebastian asked with concern in his voice. She was just standing there, starring at him.
"It....didn't work." She breathed out.
"What did not work?"
"My power. It doesn't work on you."
"Why? What is it that you are trying to do?"
"I'm a Necromancer. But I can't control you. Alesana told me that means..." She walked up to him and put her hands on his face. "You're my mate."
"Emmalina whether you could control me or not, you are still MY mate. I am not going anywhere."
Her conversation with Alesana kept repeating in her head. "You're the only one that can make his heart beat again." She put her hand on his chest where his heart was. "Bastian, why didn't you tell me that I could bring you back to life?"
Sebastian put his hand over hers. "Because I did not think you were ready for that. Claiming and Blooding are linked together. Once I claim you, that is it. There is no going back from that. We will be linked forever."
Or at least until I die. She thought sadly. She pushed those thoughts aside and decided not to worry about the future but to live in the present. "Then what are we waiting for?" She asked.
Sebastian was taken aback with her forwardness. But he'd be lying to himself if he said he didn't like it. His felt his fangs shift in his mouth just thinking about what he wanted to do to her. His vampire instincts were almost begging him to take her. "Emmalina, are you certain..."
She moved closer and pressed her lips to his, cutting him off. She slid her tongue in his mouth and deliberately grazed it on one of his fangs, drawing blood. Sebastian moaned as the warm liquid touched his tongue and every gentlemanly thing about him was locked in box inside his head until this was over. He moved his hands down her shoulders and grabbed the top of her shirt just above her breasts and ripped it off, following with his own shirt. Sebastian bent his head towards her neck and lightly grazed his fangs across the sensitive spot on her throat. She gasped and reached her hand down to undo the button on his jeans. She pulled the zipper down and tugged his jeans until they fell to the floor. She stopped only for a second to drink him in with her eyes. Every inch of his chiseled physique was glorious and she did mean EVERY inch. She rubbed her hands across his chest and down to his hips where she grabbed his sex. He jerked at her touch and before Emmalina knew it her jeans were in shreds on the floor. He looped one finger under the string of her panties and pulled snapping them. They fell to join the rest of torn pieces of fabric scattered around their feet. He picked her up and she straddled her legs around his waist and he carried her to the bedroom.
He laid her down on the bed and hoisted himself above her. She grabbed his head and forced it down so she could reach his lips. She lightly bit down on his bottom lip, causing him to moan again. He bent down and traced his tongue along the side of neck, letting his fangs graze her skin. He slide down from her neck to her breast and grabbed a throbbing nipple with his teeth, trying to be careful with his fangs. He figured he would save that for another time. She yelped in pleasure and slid her hand up to his head and grabbed on to the locks of his hair. His instincts were screaming at him to claim her now but he wanted to make sure she was ready to take him in. He knew he had to be gentle with her because she did not have an immortal's body. Her's was so fragile and could break so easily.
He grabbed her hips and rolled onto his back, placing her on top of him where her legs would straddle his hips. He reached down and slowly guided the tip of himself into her. She sucked in a breath and curled into him laying her forehead on his as she breathed through the initial pain. She gritted her teeth and slid down his length. In that moment, Sebastian heard and felt his heart beat for the first time in centuries. His lungs burned as they started filling with air and Emmalina smiled as she watched him take his first breath in so long. But Sebastian didn't care anything about that. His entire focus was on the woman on top of him. After he was sure she had acclimated herself, he gently lifted her off of him and rolled them back across the bed until he was on top again where he could take control. Emmalina reached her arms around him where she dug her nails into his back. His vampire instincts reveled when she screamed his name as he took them both over the edge into ecstasy.
After the shudders of their orgasms subsided, Sebastian curled Emmalina into him and she placed her hand over his now beating heart. He lazily opened his eyes to look at her. His mate, who was perfect in every way and he knew eternity was not nearly long enough to explore ever inch of her body, mind and soul. He gently drifted off to the sound of their hearts beating as one.
Whew! Finally, the chapter we've all been waiting for. This is my first time writing something like this so I would love to know what everyone thought. I was surprisingly a little more descriptive then I meant to be but I like how it turned out. So my question is should I continue on with these types of scenes in my legacy or should I let the reader use their imagination? Thanks for reading and commenting! I hope I didn't let anyone down with Emmalina and Sebastian's scene!
