I Might Like You Better, Baby

The Cosmos:
{Nix takes his hand and stands} When we are alone… {softly} You are in control, though.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods, starts for the castle, quietly} When we are alone, you are a woman and I am a man. When we are around others, you are the vampire and I am the ghoul. {looks at her} As it should be. And I will do whatever necessary to further your status with the others and expect you to treat me appropriately when others are around.
The Cosmos:
{Nix shakes her head} I will not…debase you, Alexei. It’s not in my make up to do that.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} And I will not give you reason to. But you will command me and I will respond appropriately.
The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at him, softly} I will try.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} You must do more than try, Bella. I will help you.
The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at him, smiles} All right. But how?
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles again} Remember what I told you about the vampires’ true faces? This is simply more of that. Consider it role playing. We will be pretending you are a dominantly minded female. Perhaps even a feminist.
The Cosmos:
{Nix beams} A female that doesn’t like penises telling me what to do?
The Universe:
{Alexei laughs, nods} Yes. Exactly.
The Cosmos:
{Nix walks with him, grins wickedly} So I should find you a leash and a leather suit?
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} If that is your wish, I already know where to find them.
The Cosmos:
{Nix shakes her head} No.. it is not.. you are not mine to do that to. {smiles} And it wouldn’t do to anger the king this early out of the box.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} As you wish.
The Cosmos:
{Nix quietly, breathlessly} Not that you wouldn’t look incredibly sexy.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles, quietly} There is always the option of role-playing behind closed doors as well.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} Yes there is. {softly} I think that might be interesting.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her, quietly} It could not hurt to practice pretending you are a feminist.
The Cosmos:
{Nix tilts her head} I think I could do that.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} then we will begin tomorrow night.
The Cosmos:
{Nix nods} As you wish. {watches him} And tonight?
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} Tonight we shall refresh your memories.
The Cosmos:
{Nix quietly} Which ones would those be?
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her} The ones you said you may have forgotten when we first came outside.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} Oh yes.. those. {looks at him} And you don’t mind helping with that?
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} I very much look forward to it, actually.
The Cosmos:
{Nix quietly} I am eager to remember. {stops and turns to face him, softly} Even a bit nervous.
The Universe:
{Alexei stops when she does, turns to her, quietly} You have nothing to be nervous about, Bella. But we can take as much time as you need.
The Cosmos:
{Nix shakes her head, quietly} I’m not sure about…vanilla, Alexei. There’s always been a motive involved.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks t her curiously} I do not think I understand.
The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at him, shrugs} There’s always been a reason.. a show of dominance, to manipulate, a show of submission, proof of loyalty.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} So what is it you are not sure about?
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} Enjoyment?
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Have you never been with someone simply because you wanted to?
The Cosmos:
{Nix shakes her head} No. Sex is …was very much a weapon where I came from. I heard stories from the humans about how it was supposed to be fun and intimate and a show of deeper feelings.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her} The humans do not come from the same world we do. I have been with many women but rarely has it been because I simply wanted to. Usually, it is as you said or because of duty. Sometimes even loneliness or just need. But rarely because has it been simply because I wanted to.
The Cosmos:
{Nix quietly} But you *have*.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Yes. {looks at her} We are whores, Bella. It is a simple truth of our existence and means little to us. It means more to the humans because they are so much more judgmental. Created ghouls understand better, but for them there is always the element of “where they came from” that they always look back on. Where, for us, it is who we have always been.
The Cosmos:
{Nix nods} It is. I’ve never known anything….different. And I’m not ashamed or regretful of where I’ve come from.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Which is why they can be as we are and yet there is still a void between us.

The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at him} I thought I was the only one that felt that way.
The Universe:
{Alexei shakes his head} I think most revenants feel that way about the created.
The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at him} We had created and Revenents We weren’t allowed to socialize with the createds unless absolutely necessary.. We were always told they were addicts and they, in my family’s home were the ..slaves for lack of a better word.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her, quietly} All ghouls are slaves, regardless, Bella. They might not have called you such, but from what you have said, they did not treat you any differently.
The Cosmos:
{Nix nods} There was a distinction though. The createds were never touched by my family unless they were being maintained. And even then it was usually with disgust and disdain. We were used as …sexual slaves.. I guess, and they were used as labor.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} I see. So.. a higher class of slave.
The Cosmos:
{Nix shrugs} I didn’t make sense to me either. I always thought *they* got the better end of that deal.. you know.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her} I see the difference. They would not sully themselves by touching a created. The revenants are more like a harem or concubines.
The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at him} I never thought of it that way but.. yes.
The Universe:
{Alexei shakes his head} I hold a similar elitist view of the created, but I have gotten better since being here. Our vampires, however, bestow their powers upon those they favor. So the created are held in a bit of esteem.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her} Here, the created are not accidents of birth but chosen.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} I can see that.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} Like an adopted child.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} No, Bella. More like a… well.. the sexual and erotic overtones of the relationship make it a bit different than that.
The Cosmos:
{Nix nods} I understand.. I only meant that they’re… not the accidents or mutations.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} And the created feel that they are special, as well. What they do not see, what they do not realize, is that they do become addicted to the blood if not because of the feeding itself, but because it is the blood that continuously grants them their abilities and long life and therefore, they are little more than addicts and therefore more easily controlled and manipulated than revenants. They are more vulnerable to a vampire’s predilections and more inclined to tolerate whatever treatment the vampire regards them with. They are forced to endure all the misery that comes with it. They cannot walk away. It is they who are the slaves while we are the servants.

The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at him, smiles} So elitist. I couldn’t imagine being that…{nods} Yes I guess I can.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} Is it an elitist view when it is the truth? When you can look at them and see them for the slaves and addicts they are? Perhaps I look upon them a little more kindly than I once did because of my own addiction.
The Cosmos:
{Nix shakes her head} I guess it’s not. That’s the one thing I’ll miss.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her curiously} What is?
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} The anticipation of the next …attack.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles, nods} I have been bitten by every female in the castle. Every time someone new comes, I am bitten by them as well. I am usually their first until they get comfortable.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} And you enjoy that? Not just the bite but the power that being there first gives you?
The Universe:
{Alexei shakes his head} It has its disadvantages.
The Cosmos:
{Nix looks at him} I don’t understand. You’ve got their trust, they talk to you.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} But I have very few encounters that are meaningful and a great many with strangers. {looks at her} And then there is the difference between need and want.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles sardonically} You have actually spoken to me more than any other woman here.

The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} Because you’re talking to me.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} I would talk to the others but they do not ask many questions. What they do ask tends to be about the castle and the other vampires. What they can expect. That kind of thing.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} To them I am pretty. To you, I am pretty interesting.
The Cosmos:
{Nix shakes her head} While I’m grateful none of them have taken an interest…{Smiles} It’s their loss. {softly} And If I could I’d totally make you mine.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods, quietly} I am more yours than anyone’s. With Genja’s decree… well, we will see.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} Yes we will. {looks up at him} What do you want right now?
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} That is a very broad question.
The Cosmos:
{Nix nods, still smiling} I know.
The Universe:
{Alexei laughs, nods} All right. {smiles} What I want right now… I don’t want to leave you or stop talking to you. I want to be yours. {shrugs and looks ahead} I do not want us to be strangers or to simply be the first until you get comfortable. {quietly} I want to be more than just public relations to you.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} I want those things too, Alexei. {looks down} And I’ve never wanted it with anyone else.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her} And I have never cared if the others moved on or they talked to me or not. I have never been resistant to leaving them.
The Cosmos:
{Nix quietly} You stir something in me.. there’s something between us that I feel like I can reach out and touch.. and I *want* to.
The Universe:
{Alexei smiles} Then we are together on that, Bella. {quietly} Behaving and being appropriate has never been difficult for me. I have been struggling with it with you.
The Cosmos:
{Nix smiles} I don’t want to behave and be appropriate. I want to be completely inappropriate and utterly primal.
The Universe:
{Alexei nods} Primal. It is a good word.
The Cosmos:
{Nix nods} It’s the best one I can find. {softly} I want you to top me. I want to see you in all of that.. glory.
The Universe:
{Alexei looks at her, his eyes stormy, quietly} You are making me crazy.
The Cosmos:
{Nix searches his eyes, softly} Touch me.
The Universe:
{Alexei stops walking, turns to her, stepping closer as he does, places a hand at the back of her neck, his thumb resting on her cheek in front of her ear, kissing her with a searing intensity}
The Cosmos:
{Nix gasps as she feels the heat to her toes, falling into the intensity, her hand raises to clutch his wrist, returns his kiss with a burning feralness}
The Universe:
{Alexei wraps his free arm around her, pulling her against him, his fingers curling into the fabric of her dress at hip}
The Cosmos:
{her hand slips up his arm to his shoulder and into his hair, her other hand rests at his waist her nails digging into him, before slipping around his back fisting into the fabric, Phoenix breaks the kiss, gasping}
The Universe:
{Alexei lips his lips as if savoring the taste of her mouth, opens his eyes after a steadying breath, looks at her for a second, then takes her hand and heads to the castle at a slightly brisker pace}
