Chapter 1: The last chance.
Unlike our father's angelic nature and physical magnificence or Our mother's pure soul and endless Love, I had a charge like no other.
This wasn't supposed to be a new dawn for all supernaturals that were forced into another Realm in fear of being enslaved or used by the humans and forced to be inslaved to that curse on their kind- death.
A new life, body, place and expectations but same old soul.
I had just shifted from the fourth realm (Purgatory- the realm of the halflings and hybrids -all supernatural creatures) right after I regained my memories trying to find him but instead I literally ran into a sheikh -thankfully this time around- who'd immediately begun planning for our marriage ceremony before the sun set instead of intending to have me hanged in the middle of the godforsaken village.
I have to admit it was fun and all but I'm too old for these acts.
It's a marvel how some people still haven't caught up with the concept of 'Consent' or at least patience. This being the 20th century and all.
"May I?" a low and deep voice interrupted my thoughts as a stranger made himself comfortable right on the opposite end of the little fire I had going. Where the hell did he come from.
"Is this how strangers introduce themselves here? And I don't remember agreeing to being entertained with your presence. So leave." I stated as I looked up from my slouched position. Straightening my now purple stained thob from its crinkled state in order to hide my very naked and might-be exposed body parts.
I could tell he was entirely not Mundane but he didn't have a charge either, which means he's either a halfbreed or a demon.
okay it's quite easy Angels are forbidden in the human realm. Only special cases require their presence and whenever that moment takes place we all supernaturals feel the change in the dimensions like an electric shock. In short it's quick but still uncomfortable and very noticeable.
"Since when do you ever get what you want?" He said ignoring my rant as his tone stayed calm and low as when he first spoke. He really had guts.
"Since a few reincarnations ago, now please leave!" I rose up towering over him but soon regretted the decision when he stood to a 6'4 win over my 5'9.
Fudgin' Crap that body!
"There's only one cave for miles if not days, let's share this one for the night. I won't bother you and you even won't even hear me breath, deal?" he finally broke the staring competition by raising his hands in a gesture of defeat. Well the breathing part was a give away cause he hardly had a heartbeat going.
"And that's supposed to magically change my mind?" I asked looking him up as I walked towards the entrance to ensure there was no possibility of an intruder to interrupt what I had planned to do to this unknown creature.
"Okay, it's a good deal, but mine is better. I need your blood! Otherwise you might as well leave." I Stated with a sick grin taking over my expressionless face.
"So it IS you, although I must say, I'm quite disappointed that the grand daughter of Eve is still quite so... primitive. Ever heard of a Tribrid? you might want to avoid taking their energy. Those are some messy freaks of nature by the way." He said making himself comfortable in his previous spot.
"And who said I wanted clean energy?" I asked my claws coming out as my green eyes turned a shade darker than before. A few more breaths and My charge would take over.
"Are you kidding me right now? I just got here for Christ's sake and you're already about to drain the last bit of humanity I have left seriously?" He complained, his pitch a little higher than the other times he's spoken.
clearly this situation was not as amusing for him anymore.
"I don't really have an option, especially after you expressed your disappointment in me, I doubt you'd mind losing a little more of that attitude." My dark side responded as she was now raging against my better judgement to just drain her prey. Her voice cracking and raspy as though her throat was being dragged through a path of broken glass.
In that very moment I heard a distant blow of a horn. Darn those royal dogs!
It's already been two whole days can't they just let it go already?
"It seems you might just have a buffet waiting for you 2 miles east from here. Might wanna make a run for it before your meal escapes!" He commented looking quite interested in my dilemma as I looked between him and the entrance of the cave trying to decide on which direction to go.
"Freaking elves and their great senses!" I muttered under my breath but low enough for him to get everything.
"We know, now go catch us some roasted meat from their camels will you. And please don't forget to take the Ram as well." He pursed falling backwards to lay down as if in anticipation for the meal to come.
Likewise, I ran out as my eyes were completely black now that my dark charge took over entirely.
All I recall was causing one hell of a sand storm and the screams of terror as she sucked their energy leaving behind dry corpses who immediately turned to sand as if their existence was merely a figment of my imagination. Of course their wails will forever be forged in my memories. But that was not something new.
Satisfied and back to my better self I emptied their camels of all necessary equipment for my coming days of travel out of this dreadfully silent place.
Completely changed into a cleaner pair of a plain white thob with pair of pants in hand I head for the cave to damp all my collections on my side of the now dying flame.
Morning came and I woke to an empty cave.
All my supplies were gone, like literally not there.
'And to think I spared his god forsaken life'
I mused as I decided to head north, far away from where I came. hopefully to a better century than my last.
I had been moving for two days tops. Slower this time because of the many villages I was passing through.
With that I begun my lazy run across sands and before long I was floating with the dust across the vast barren land just like I have Bren the passed few da
As a Taurè I can manipulate specific elements depending with when I reincarnated and sometimes even more powerful abilities that come naturally with the charge you carry.
Angel or Demon mates are an exception but Charges like mine aren't mated to Angels or Demons but other Taurè called a Mark. Because my charge is more darker than they are initially supposed to be.
Coles are more light in comparison to my dark one. I unfortunately have both sides of the charge in control.
And once we've got a balance between the two, it's only when a Mark and my charge mate that the charge takes one form entirely.
Demons are dark and Angels are light.
A Tauré has a source of power which can either be from their Angel side or Fallen side. but sadly for the very first sets of my type of Tauré, I was born with both sides dominating and the longer it takes to mate with a Mark the harder it is to control the charge.
at least my brother had his but I still haven't found mine.
After moving for miles It didn't take more than two hours that I was met with the sound of raging waves then I decided to break the storm around me.
A mile more and I was faced with the most beautiful scenery since I arrived here.
The ocean was raging against the shore just as my heart against time. Against the distance between me and my Mark like he was waiting right over the edge. He was so close I could feel him but I still didn't know where to look exactly.
Just one glance at him and I'd be free. At least that's what I believed.
Whether or not I'd be at peace because just seeing him will grant me the peace I've been yearning all my life, lives!
We could finally fulfill our fate and restore the balance in us.
I was the only remaining Tauré without a Mark.
My mateless lives proved to bring me more bad luck than good after all who were like me found their missing halves.
if it were easy for me as it was for them, I'd be happy, free and at peace.
But it wasn't and not as long as I was still cursed. And now my Charge was starting to threaten the lives I am yet to surround myself with, how was I to carry on.
Yes, hope is what I need. it's all I can afford to have now.
I will come back again for you, my Mark.
And I ran one last time to my last reincarnation. My last chance at being alive with a soul that isn't over taken by darkness or driven by the curse from my shortcomings. One last chance to recall all my previous lives.
