LOIRE VALLEY, FRANCEcopyright protection6PENANATgv6549v9i

NOVEMBER 1565copyright protection6PENANAZcAWQAWjrf

Jimin was with a farmer’s daughter on the grassy banks of the Loire River when the storm roller in, and having let his gelding wander in the meadow, was left to his own two feet to carry him back to the Chateau. He tore a silver buckle off his shoe, placed it in the girl’s palm, and watched her scurry away, mud slinging on her skirt. Then he tugged on his boots and started for home.copyright protection6PENANAFJaQSAhO5f

Rain sheeted down on the darkening countryside surrounding the Chateau de Langeais. Jimin stepped easily over the sunken graves and humus of the cemetery; even in the thickest fog he could find his way home from here and not fear getting lost. There was no fog tonight, but the darkness and onslaught of rain were deceiving enough.copyright protection6PENANA2Zvy6BCf6L

There was movement along the fringe of the Jimin’s vision, and he snapped his head to the left. At first glance what appeared to be a large angel topping a nearby monument rose to full height. Neither stone nor marble, the boy had arms and legs. His torso was naked, his feet were bare, and peasant trousers hung low on his waist. He hopped down from the monoument, the ends of his black hair dripping rain. It slid down his face, which was dark as a Spaniard’s.copyright protection6PENANAy5Y82OIZ8a

Jimin’s hand crept the hilt of his sword. “Who’s there?”copyright protection6PENANAfNTpDMZUA5

The boy’s mouth hinted a smile.copyright protection6PENANAaD5GbbhNqn

“Do not play games with the Due de Langeais,”  Jimin warned. “I asked for your name. Give it.”copyright protection6PENANAzYtx7wmQvu

“Due?” The boy leaned against a twisted willow tree. “Or bastard?”copyright protection6PENANA0KhUaVGaQh

Jimin unsheathed his sword.copyright protection6PENANAf0UkG5wYTW

“Take it back! My father was the Due de Langeais. I’m the Due de Langeais now,” he added clumsily, and cursed himself for it.copyright protection6PENANAmtVP03lnTR

The boy gave a lazy shake of his head.copyright protection6PENANARUB9OM5vWV

“Your father wasn’t the old due.”copyright protection6PENANAMbWGwDM2BF

Jimin seethed at the outrageous insult.copyright protection6PENANAZX8UN9X9wR

“And your father?” he demanded, extending the sword. He didn’t yet know all his vassals, but he was learning. He would brand the family name of this boy to memory.copyright protection6PENANA0oLCyAoE5k

“I’ll ask once more,” he said in a low voice, wiping a hand down his face to clear away the rain. “Who are you ?”copyright protection6PENANAARwwx2ak5M

The boy walked up and pushed the blade aside. He suddenly looked older than Jimin had presumed, maybe even a year or two older than Jimin.copyright protection6PENANAZ4J8ZxiXGO

“One of the Devil’s brood,” he answered.copyright protection6PENANAOGdAiMaHqf

Jimin felt a clench of fear in his stomach.copyright protection6PENANA106xxEAIYG

“You’re a raving lunatic,” he said through his teeth.”Get out of my way.”copyright protection6PENANAuYKe7KLpHr

The ground beneath Jimin tilted.Bursts of gold and red popped behind his eyes. Hunched with his fingernails grinding into his thighs, he looked up at the boy, blinking and gasping, trying to make sense of what was happening. His mind reeled like it was no longer his to command.copyright protection6PENANAew8s6reg8F

The boy crouched to level their eyes.copyright protection6PENANAw9GDHehiWg

“Listen carefully. I need something from you. I won’t leave until I have it. Do you understand?”copyright protection6PENANAYrfJFmurMb

Gritting his teeth, Jimin shook his head to express his disbelief—his defiance. He tried to spit at the boy, but it trickled down his chin, his tongue refusing to obey him.copyright protection6PENANAT0I1sPsH6B

The boy clasped his hands around Jimin’s; their heat scorched him and he cried out.copyright protection6PENANAmCL2ftgxLd

“I need your oath of fealty,” the boy said. “Bend on one knee and sear it.”copyright protection6PENANAOKE3ukqZLc

Jimin commanded his throat to laugh harshly, but his throat constricted and he choked on the sound. His right knee buckled as if kicked from behind, though no one was there, and he stumbled forward into the mud. He bent sideways and retched.copyright protection6PENANAbEdTGGI9nO

“Swear it,” the boy repeated.copyright protection6PENANAKJrvMGY2dK

Heat flushed Jimin’s neck; it took all his energy to curl his hands into two weak fists. He laughed at himself, but there was no humor. He had no idea how, but the boy was inflicting the nausea and weakness inside him. It would not lift until he took the oath. He would say what he had to, but he swore in his heart he would destroy the boy for this humiliation.copyright protection6PENANAf2vU50ewZZ

“Lord, I become your man,” Jimin said venomously.copyright protection6PENANAJaEW4kCMtZ

The boy raised Jimin to his feet.copyright protection6PENANABeJ2KvJJyX

“Meet me here at the start of the Hebrew month of Cheshvan. During the two weeks between new and full moons, I’ll need you service.”copyright protection6PENANAtNZZI50WBZ

“A… fortnight?” Jimin’s whole frame trembled under the weight of his rage.copyright protection6PENANAVkaAheUU1o

“I am the Due de Langeais!”copyright protection6PENANAUDCDFm8p5G

“You are a Nephil,” the boy said on a sliver of a smile.copyright protection6PENANAmzulzcqA92

Jimin had a profane retort on the tip of his tongue, but he swallowed it. His next words were spoken with icy venom.copyright protection6PENANAz5mKFEZzy1

“What did you say?”copyright protection6PENANAYsEB5kXeJ3

“You belong to the biblical race of Nephilim. Your real father was an angel who fell from heaven. You’re half mortal.”copyright protection6PENANAV5DqqdDRNM

The boy’s dark eyes lifted, meeting Jimin’s.copyright protection6PENANATnRg8wU76s

“Half fallen angel.”copyright protection6PENANA84VMF07DfQ

Jimin’s tutor’s voice drifted up from the recesses of his mind, reading passages from Bible, telling of a deviant race created when angles cast from heaven mated with mortal women. A fearsome and powerful race. A chill that wasn’t entirely revulsion crept through Jimin.copyright protection6PENANAHbVlBmzeem

“Who are you?”copyright protection6PENANA07KSoSoiZu

The boy turned, walking away, and although Jimin wanted to go after him, he couldn’t command his legs to hold his weight. Kneeling there, blinking up through the rain, he saw two thick scars on the back of the boy’s naked torso. They narrowed to form an upside-down V.copyright protection6PENANAL8zGVfH2TX

“Are you-fallen?” he called out. “Your wings have been stripped, haven’t they?”copyright protection6PENANASA8OWJavYo

The boy-angel-whoever he was did not turn back. Jimin did not need the confirmation.copyright protection6PENANASYwCQUufdu

“This service I’m to provide,” he shouted.”I demand to know what it is!”copyright protection6PENANAKZCjGyzoAs

The air resonated with the boy’s low laughter.copyright protection6PENANAlt3uhZdsvb
