OIL Elfis threw down his pickaxe and examined his frost-bitten hands. The blisters had hardened since he last checked. And to make matters worse, his back and muscles threatened to seize up. At this rate he would die from overwork and starvation. Then maggots and worms would wriggle inside his eye sockets and play peek-a-boo. Too exhausted and in too much pain, he quit for the day. Hopefully, it would have rained by then, making it easier for him to dig deeper furrows.
With a bit of luck, he might even manage to plant his potato seeds. He straightened his stiff back, groaning with the effort. He had no idea where he was going to find food though. Bending to get his pickaxe, he heard a faint sound; like a splash of some kind. He slowly turned round. A few feet away a rat was swimming across a pool of murky liquid. Minutes earlier there had only been a collection of potholes where cows once trampled.
It clambered out, dripping, and scampered in the direction of Ben Ard Forest next to the field. Elfis guessed the liquid was sewage. Yesterday he had cracked a sewage pipe and almost vomited at the stench. He went over and knelt beside it, taking a deep whiff. He brought his nose closer and took an even bigger whiff. His spine tingled with nervous excitement. He dipped a hand in and examined the liquid as it ran down his fingers. He rubbed them together. This time he was sure. The word came out as rasp. He stood up.
This time the word echoed around him. Laughing, he stood up and wrung out the bottom of his hooded robe. A cawing sound rang in the air. He looked over at an elm tree on the edge of the forest whose branches overhung the field.
Perched on its middle branch was Carson, a wily old crow. The elf has found oil.
Get A Copy
The elf has ahhhhhhh! Seconds later he resurfaced, beating his wings against the surface. He stuck out his tongue, closed an eye, and lined the bird up in his sights. Do you know the price of a barrel of oil these days? He fished him out of the pool and put him on his shoulder, facing his ear. He spluttered for a few moments and then spoke. We barter with the leprechauns.
A bucketful of oil for a kilo of gold. You must be off your rocker. But you know those silver-tongued leprechauns. And you? He was brought up honest. Of course, if you think you can go it alone, then by all means do so. Elfis thought it over for a few seconds. Not a percent more. You got a deal. Thirty percent. Now, can you get me cleaned up? He beat his wings against the sides of the basin until they hurt. When the last drop fell, Elfis plonked down the bucket on the low wall round the well, next to a cake of soap.
Elfis grinned. Carson spluttered, cursed and cawed his lungs out even louder than before. The water turned black. Elfis emptied the basin and refilled it, repeating the process of rubbing soap, shaking and rinsing. Carson continued to complain and struggle. After the fourth basin of water had been emptied, Elfis lifted out a bewildered Carson and set him down on the ground. Carson staggered around, flapping his wings and falling over. After a few minutes, he beat his wings furiously and managed to lift himself a few inches off the ground.
Minutes later he could fly, a short distance at first, then across the field. Otherwise crow pie will be on the menu. Why it had to die in the middle of fucking nowhere was another question. She hated cliches and a damsel in a wet dress walking up to a spooky mansion was certainly a cliche. The door was cherry red and had an old fashioned knocker that looked odd on the modern steel door. Hope filled her as she thought she heard movement on the other side of the door.
The door flew open and a disheveled, very sexy man looked down at her. He wore a tight tshirt and loose fitting jeans. Covered from head to toe in all different colors of paint, he looked like a delicious bohemian mess. She could see him take her in through blueberry colored eyes. His full lips curved up in a smile and he looked totally different from a second ago. He pushed his dark messy curls back from his eyes and let loose a small burst of laughter.
Faydra imagined a lot of scenarios, but this was far more bizarre then she had imagined. He was enjoying her discomfort. I broke down a ways back and your house seems to be the only one around here. A strong gust of wind whipped up and it push her in the door. Once inside the warmth was an immediate calming force.
She could hear her mother now. Faydra you need an emergency kit for your car. What if something were to happen. You never take a coat with you even in the dead of winter. She hated when her mother was right almost as much as her mother loved being right. He placed his hand on the small of her back to guide her in, an intense sexual heat spread through her whole body and she caught herself starting to lean into him and straightened immediately. What was wrong with her. A streak of red caught the corner of her eye and she immediately thought blood and jumped away from him.
It was a giant painting above the fireplace. A white canvas with a single swath of crimson and a smattering of droplets of the same color. Feeling like a fool Faydra tried to cover her jumpiness by pretending it was just a shiver from being cold. The man gave her a smirk that told her she was fooling no one. Go upstairs the first door on the left is a guest room. There is a robe in the ensuite bathroom.
Do you have a dryer I can use? He had already walked away and was heading into another room. He was charming in an assholy way. Speeding up the stairs she walked into a lavender room, decorated in such a way that she wanted to lay down on the down duvet and take a very long nap. He was right about the robe and the dryer and she quickly changed and threw everything that was wet into the dryer.
Her appearance was goulish. Mascara ran down her face, her hair was a tangled mess. Doing the best she could she fixed her hair into a pony tail and wiped off all her makeup. You certainly look better. Here its a coffee with a little liquor to take the chill out of your bones. He had a mug in this hand too, but he placed it on the raised hearth without drinking it. Its almost freezing. I travel all over for my sales job and I was hoping to sleep in my own bed tonight. I hate driving in a coat its so uncomfortable. I guess I should have made the effort. His arm was on the back of the sofa behind her neck.
Someone as beautiful as you can stay as long as you need. He ran his lips down her neck laying a quick kiss at the nape of her neck. A walk, even a short one might do her some good. He took her hand and she felt a buzz of electricity. He led her into a very large room.
The moon was shining in and cast an eerie shadow over everything. Sasha flipped a switch and a dim light came on in the corner of the room. The room was wall to wall drop clothes and canvases strewn everywhere. Paint pots of all sizes and colours littered tables and the floor. A very large canvas leaned against the one bare wall.
It looked taller than she was and wider than it was tall. Feydra was mesmerized by the outline of the woman in the picture, when he came up behind her. She leaned against him. His delicate hands rested on her shoulder. He smelled earthy and fresh. She wanted him to kiss her, but he stood there. His heat warmed her, her cheeks burned. He pushed her gently towards the canvas. She let him lead her there.
A desperate need to leave over came any sense of decorum. Before she could move at all he grabbed her arms and held her in place. He reached around and untied her robe. He lets the garment fall to the ground. She shivers as her warm flesh is exposed to the cold air. Goose bumps pepper her flesh. I want to hear it. He walked around her. She looked up into his eyes. He brings them to his lips and licks them, then leans in and kisses her so she can taste herself on his tongue.
Faydra is trying to concentrate. Something is wrong, but it feels so good. Just a single touch sends shockwaves of pleasure through her body. Why would she cover perfection. She sat he positioned her so one leg was over the padded arm of the chair and the other on the floor. He had a perfect view of those silken pale curls and a hint of the pink tender flesh inside. He had her grip each arm of the chair so nothing was hidden from him.
I will get my paints. His pale skin and chiseled chest make him look like a greek statue. His cock is large and she licks her lips. The need to have him in her mouth was overwhelming. Carrying a jar of red paint and a brush, he smiles and kneels before her. His tongue searches for hers and they play. His lips are now on her breasts, sucking her hard nipples into his hungry mouth. He stops and she opens her eyes to see him dip his brush into the dark red liquid.
He smiles and circles each nipple with the cold paint, making her gasp. He continues to tease her this way. She writhes and arches under his ministrations. Paint drips and runs down her flat belly. He kisses her outer lips. His tongue dips inside. Sucking and nibbling he has her moaning and begging for release. Pulling back the hood he drips the cold paint, her orgasm hits as soon as the liquid hits the sensitive flesh. She screams in her release and he plunges inside her as rides the wave of her orgasm.
He fucks her without mercy. Fast, hard strokes and she is ready to come again. They are slick with the red liquid, their bodies slide over each other, the pleasure builds in both of them. In the final seconds Faydra looks up to see gleaming fangs and feral eyes. Terror and release hit her at the same time, just as his teeth sink into her neck. The pull of her life liquid from her neck makes her cum over and over until she passes out.
Sasha sucks and licks her body clean. He leaves her pale lifeless body in the chair and begins to paint her. He looks back longingly. He wants her again, but its never the same as the first time and the disappointment will bring frustration and violence. He was full anyway. The lust would fade as he worked to finish his painting. A grizzled out man looked back at her and she screamed. Her neck was cramped and she felt like shit. Rolling down the window a blast of cold air hits her in the face waking her fully. You look like hell. Breaking down here felt like a slip of a memory on the other side of her foggy brain.
She nodded to the old man and he went about his work. But, until then, enjoy a piece from my original fairy tale, The Escape of Princess Madeline. King Theodore jumped from his bed. Beads of sweat slid down his temples, as his heart threatened to beat out of his chest. Braving the cool stones of the castle floor, he walked to the windows at the far end of his chamber, where a soft tendril of smoke danced above the blown-out candles.
Relighting them, he watched the soft orange flames flicker in the wind. Now awake, he leaned over the windowsill, peering into the courtyard below. Nothing stirred in the darkness. Around it, dark cobblestones curved and disappeared into the growing shadows. Looking past the courtyard, beyond the castle walls towards the eastern mountains, he watched the rolling hills disappear under a wave of fog.
He let out a great sigh, wishing memories could fade the same way. King Theodore wrapped his velvet robe tighter as the wind blew against his face. As his eyes sought clarity from the outside, his mind wandered back to the nightmare that plagued him. A line of royal visitors and merchants lined the rolling hillsides on their journey to Soron.
In anticipation of the summer tournaments and royal births, attendance doubled, bursting the seams of the small kingdom. Peering into the courtyard below, he watched the frenzy with a smile. Under colorful banners, people ran back and forth, carrying bundles of fabric, bouquets of wildflowers, and piles of farm produce. A soft tap on the shoulder brought him back to the room. The queen has passed beyond the grasping hands of our magic. The room filled with sage and sandalwood spun as he looked at the group of wizards surrounding the bed.
She died for you. Giving her life to bring you these wonderful children and save How dare you! Thiswas not a sacrifice she needed to make! His face deepened in anger until it matched the red in his velvet robe. Thiswill not go unpunished. He approached the queen. His body shook as new tears rolled down. He wept quietly until the golden light from the windows faded.
The morning sun rose over the horizon, streaking the countryside with an orange and red wave. King Theodore did not notice this beauty—or any beauty. Sitting calmly in his throne, he watched as the room slowly filled. His face, like stone, refused to give way, noticing but not reacting to the growing crowd, or their sympathies. With weary eyes, and a tight jaw, he looked over the room. Faces painted with anticipation, fear, and curiosity stared back at him. No one had expected him this morning. He barked an order to the nearby steward, breaking the silence. With a curt nod of approval, the steward lifted his horn to his lips, announcing the royal decree.
The horn echoed off the stained glass windows crowning the throne room. The gathered crowd quieted, looking at the steward expectedly. The knights stood straight against the side wall, and the wizards folded their arms inside their robes. The other wizards leaned in towards their leader, Elias, with questioning looks. Elias refused to break eye contact with the king. With another nod, the king encouraged the steward to continue. A shocked gasp ran through the hall. With a wave of his arm, the king directed the knights into position around the unarmed men.
It is not our fault. You must know that. King Theodore stood, amplifying his authority. You said it yourself. That you knew of the tragedy before it happened. With all your power and foresight, you did nothing to stop this atrocity. That alone is punishable by death. Death may be too extreme, but exile is generous. Be warned, if you so as much enter the kingdom, or whisper its name, your protection will be gone and I will not stop my men from killing you. The next sound King Theodore heard pulled at his heart.
Outside the royal nursery, his hands stayed on the steel handle. The nurse opened the door, bouncing a baby on each shoulder. King Theodore let the darkness hide his tears. Shit happens, life happens, but for some reason it happens to me a lot. I was kinda hoping life would give me a break — maybe crap on somebody else for a while. Yeah, right. I mean, look at Justin Shelby. Probably faded on prescription pills he stole from his mom. This guy is begging for life to hit him upside the head. But it never does. Justin scaled the side of the outdoor playcenter like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible.
Justin skated religiously, a regular at the downtown Moses Lake skatepark across from the Aquatic Center. Like most of us skaters, he was thin, moderately athletic, and had a strong sense of balance from endless hours busting his ass on the concrete. He quickly reached the apex, damn spider monkey. He stood exalted atop the dome of the airplane-shaped plastic toy.
An elementary kid inside gawked up at him from the Plexiglas window. Looked like a good idea to me, so I did the same. You never know what folly you might catch on video. I mean, this was live action stuff. I could be ten seconds away from a viral Youtube video, Gangnam Style. Justin proclaimed his status as king of the hill, arms held high. For the record, Justin is sixteen.
A couple months ago, Justin was my best friend, my idiot. Or so I had thought. But Tommy was cool. One of those life things that happens to me so often. As soon as he spotted me parked in the drive-through a nasty smirk bloomed across his face. In a moment of sublime inspiration, Justin dropped his pants with a show of lily-white butt cheeks. Tommy noticed me too. He knows I hate it. No one but Tommy calls me Mikey.
Hope you enjoy the view! God I hate that name. And thanks for the killer video. Justin looked back over his shoulder in surprise, attempting to pull up his pants at the same time. The knee-jerk reaction caused him to lose his delicate balance atop the apex of the plastic airplane. He fell onto his right side, and slithered down. His hands shot out across the smooth surface, clawing, seeking a grip. There was nothing to grab. I watched him slide inexorably down the outside of the playcenter, pants and underwear still down around his thighs.
He tried rolling into position for a feet-first landing. The bright yellow, powder-coated aluminum fence that had aided his climb to the top now blocked his landing on the way down. I cringed and almost ruined the shot. He sat there, squealing like a stuck pig. Pegged in the holiest of holies, he had two inches of aluminum post going in through the out door.
I had a momentary twinge of conscience. I mean, he was still crying, and Tommy was trying to climb the fence to help him. It looked really painful. As I drove off, I thought about taking that video down. I probably should have. But it only took fifteen minutes for my video clip to find its way to over students at Moses Lake High School, shared over and over to dozens of Facebook profiles.
My first ever viral video. I guess life happens to Justin Shelby too.
