He listens intently as I spoke about others, and their views of what it is that they want to do. He gave a little shrugbefore saying "It is simple human nature to fear what one does not understand. For many of our kind, the pursuit of power drives them. To know that at your will, you can bend the fallen world to your whim. Yes, we are suppose to balance that, by gaining the wisdom to know better, but for many the pursuit of power is too tempting. Even for the non awakened world, surely there are too many still who pursuit greatness, no matter the cost. I know you are an intelligent woman, you have seen these kinds of people, corrupted through their greed, their wrath, even their lusts. So yes, they fear what we desire to do, because in the end, since everyone will be connected, they will feel the anguish that they would cause, and have a greater understanding of the consequences of their actions. Every great revolution comes with great fear." Ignoring the comment about her blush she listens to the rest of what he says. "You have given me so very much to think on." I paused for a moment, "Octavian, may I Request something of you?". He looked into my eyes "What is it that you want to request from me Stephanie? If it is within my power, I will certainly grant it." My pulse quickened slightly, "I would like to see you again. Not in a dream but for real and I would love to bring you a picnic an... " I trailed off as I think on how this might not be feasible and Fillomina may actually care for Octavian like Samantha cares for Mr Parker, and I wouldn't want to step on any toes. I shook my head, "forget it this is just a dream anyway". I looked down until I heard him speak once more, "I would... have to make arrangements of course for such. For your safety and my own of course. However, I think that would be.. quite delightful." He leaned over and whispers very softly, "And do not worry about Filimena, her and I view each other as siblings more so than we ever would... anything else. If you do not believe me, speak to her yourself." I felt warm as I blushed deeply. "Forgive me it was forward of me to ask. It's just I would like to know more of you". I paused before stating, "I can assume that this is no normal dream, how would I know when or how to". I paused even I sound naive when I listen to my own thoughts. "I barely know you yet I believe you when you say you are more like siblings. I don't know when would be good but I know I have called and tried to make an appointment with the dean on Friday. I have not gotten much of an answer from the dean or his Secretary. But I look forward to treating you to some of my home cooking." I smiled warmly at him. He gave a bit of a smile, and after finishing the dance, he leaned forward and brushed a kiss against the corner of my mouth I knew I had to be blushing but for some strange reason I couldn't look away. "Friday evening then. I will make the arrangements. I look forward to your home cooking. It will certainly be a treat, as I am sure you are a wonderful cook. Until then.... " Octavian faded from my dream, and left me with fleeting glimpse of the dream within my mind, and the knowledge that at sometime on Friday evening, I have plans. I awaken and throughout my training I can't help but smile, even with any bruises that I receive. I decide to keep them as battle trophies. Through it all I concentrate on my training with the Arrow and tryto get my meeting with the dean. I find my mind drifting from time to time thinking about the dream and the appointment I knew I had with an interesting individual and whenever I think about the appointment I cant help but smile. Today was such a blur. I remember coming home from my run showering and heading to the kitchen to cook.
I asked Tina if I could use her oven and she said yes that's when I noticed Kayla was there so I said hello and asked what was wrong as she looked upset. She informed me that one of her pack mates wife had been kidnapped. Yes Kayla is a werewolf this was all becoming more and more unreal. She described to me the woman whom had taken her and even gave me a police rendering sketch. I can see why this woman would attack werewolves. The scars across her face were horrendous, her eye's were missing. I instantly got the idea to ask the aid of Mr Parker and his new friends to assist in finding her. Unfortunately even they couldn't help find the woman but they could find the wife with the help of a personal item of hers. Mr Parker had the audacity to tell me to go ask the husband for an item. When I said that was not possible he said I should simply take one. I told him that also was not possible my sense of morals would not bend so easily. That is just something I cant bring myself to do. We went to the apartment next door to Kayla's pack mate Sam's apartment. I stood out in the hall and watched for anyone coming and Mr Parker worked his "Magic" and retrieved a Shirt. We left then and met up he told me to call Kayla and I did. We met at the book store and Sam said he would do anything to get his mate back for she was well suited to him. He swore that he owed Mr. Parker a favor. This was what I was thinking all along. Now Sam will have to listen to Octavian and them. Listening was the first step needed. Perhaps if they listen with out malice in their hearts they will learn that no one of consequence does not seam the bad guys after all, maybe the lesser of two evils. I returned to cooking and I think I may have made Mr. Parker jealous a bit that I didn't invite him to partake in sampling my cooking. I had a heavy picnic basket full of foods cold food hot food desert and a red Merlot to drink. 8964 copyright protection161ＰＥＮＡＮＡvX5acmDb0x 維尼
The night seamed to fly by so fast. I remember he wore a Cream colored Cable Knit sweater and black slacks. He looked less frail and I had to make sure I remembered to breath he sure is easy on the eyes. I can not believe he had me taken all the was to Paris just to see him. What an amazing evening, It was so wonderful. I wish I could scream it from the Mountain top. He's so fun to talk with, I enjoy every minute he's very intelligent and kind and patient. He takes his time to describe things and explain them to me. What shocked me the most is when he showed me what his back looked like. I was flooded with a strong emotion and desire to hold him then and there. I listened to him speak of how he received his scars and I was overcome, he seamed so brave to have surmounted such horrible hardships at such a tender young age. I am not one to believe in "Love at first sight", but as this is our second face to face and our third meeting I must say that I am inexplicably drawn to him. He's so Charismatic, Charming, Chivalrous, Brave, Intelligent, Strong, and I am amazed each time he is willing to spend time with me. I can not believe he will be so willing to give up his life to bring peace to the world. To be forever stuck in that machine. It gave me the shivers each time I thought about it. It is a good concept but there has to be another way to go about it. All night he would go first instead of the normal "ladies first" When I questioned him he stated simply "I would never let anything that was special to me be put in harms way first." That just sent butterflies down to my toes but I cant tell him that. 8964 copyright protection161ＰＥＮＡＮＡkjBOqYk7nY 維尼
I text-ed Kayla when I returned home and asked how things were and if they needed my healers touch but she said no and I told her we should get together and talk. She said we should and I told her I had exciting news about tall dark and handsome. hehe We will see what the light of day brings. 8964 copyright protection161ＰＥＮＡＮＡTuNRiGzk57 維尼
In the light of day I should not have told Kayla. I can not lie to save my life, I am certain if she found out exactly whom I am dating she would kill him, and this disturbs me greatly. I don't want him to perish because of me I could never face myself or my family again, not only that but god forbid if they use me to get to him. I feel so anguished today because I may have put his life in danger, I begin to believe I should not see him again, but he does have a way with words. I have promised him that as long as it is good for him... I will not run away. I have decided to speak with jasper privately. Perhaps I can have her train me some. I saw what she did with her mind to Gab. I hope I can at least learn to protect or defend, or at the very least not to be a burden to those I care for. Again he visited me in my dreams and promised me that he would allow me to remember them from now on. That is when I promised him that as long as I thought it was good for him I would not run away from him. The moment I think anyone will hurt him through me or because of me then I will be gone. I remember in the dream I was more bold than I normally am. I can not believe I was bold enough to lick his lips and that his response to that only spurred me into more action. If only the nuns from the orphanage could see me now. I would have a ruler over the back of my hands while I wrote one thousand times something to do with not lusting after the physical form, yet I can not wait to see him again. I feel like I am going to have to run six miles just to calm the excited nerves he leaves within me. If only he were not the one whom had feelings for Morgan I couldn't stop thinking about that and when I did it saddened me. I can only hope that it is truly me he sees when he holds me and not her. 8964 copyright protection161ＰＥＮＡＮＡ21qvos98T5 維尼
I am slightly afraid now of Filimena. Her strong reaction to what she perceived a distraction frightens me though I do not want to tell him that. For now I will be watchful and patient and train as best I can. I believe I could be falling in love with him but Idon't want to analyze it right now. 165Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdK5zDMrnXHns18.104.22.168da2
