“Yup Sarah, it worked out perfect! Just like you said, you learn to react quicker! It made me feel a little sad to lose any chance of ever recovering my powers, but it was for the best. Quillspawn is gone forever.” Aniela laps between my legs as I lean back and talk on the phone. Priscilla, the green eyed girl, is fetching us drinks from the fridge. Oh how I love having slaves.
None of my quivering is audible as I flow pure ink into Aniela’s hungry mouth. Every lap pulls more of me into her and teaches her that my ink need not be something to dread. Her shadow is such a fine brush for calligraphy, and her mind is so receptive.
“I’m not quite ready to give up being Patina yet - I have a few more wrongs I want to right! Sylvia is a great ride by the way. We had a little trouble when Silhouette decided it would be funny to walk for a couple hours last night, but it was good exercise anyway. She’s doing great by the way. Better than great. I think we get along amazingly well.” I almost moan, but more than that I almost laugh. Not that she should be able to see through the half-truths, but it still feels glorious to be fooling her.
This time she won’t even know anything is wrong until I finish her. Maybe I’ll take a page from Jesse Colloten’s book and use a gun, but that doesn’t seem fitting. Not that I’m above it for how important a goal this is, but it’s so normal, and I’m not at all normal anymore.
I’ll never be normal again.
“I promise we’ll visit - there’s just a situation here I need to lock down first. Quillspawn infected a lot of women with her essence, and though I was able to draw it out there’s still a lot of cleanup. I need to make sure Twilight Falls is safe before I come back to Midas. Once we’re done here I’d love to see how the kids are doing, so you’d better take good care of them!” Being jovial gives me an excuse to laugh, so I do. She still isn’t in on the joke, but I am and that’s enough for me.
Priscilla returns and I hood my eyes at the thought of cleanup. Even if Aniela is the woman I love, there are still so many things we can do for each other. Besides, I’m sure Aniela will enjoy the feel of Priscilla’s body as much as I did from the inside.
“What do I have planned after that? Well, I’m not sure yet . . . but as soon as I do, you’ll definitely be the first to know.”
