To give that which you will, is the thing that means the truth of who you really are…
Desires – Beginnings
By BStyles and Tera S
When Martin said that he had given her his heart, Tera gave a soft sigh of contentment at his words… She said in a gentle voice, “You had mine from the moment you send hello Martin… I could not let you go without telling you….” She turned her had to look at him as he continued to speak and added, “The pain runs deep within me Martin… It bites at the light and the dark and so the pain fills what is left behind… That is part of the reason for the words of the song… I ask for a little bit… And have gotten so little in the past for the pleading from my lips…”
When his voice faded away, she closed her eyes and was about to answer him when he moved and then screamed at his actions…
Tera’s head shot around at his yell and she cried out, “MARTIN!” All other thoughts were driven out her mind as the pain he felt rushed into her mind and body… It was both the blessing and curse of her existence… She was always so aware of the joys and pains around her….
She immediately moved to try and stop the bleeding from his wings. The concern on her face mixed with the tears from her eyes as she raised her hands to his wings. But then he held the white feathers to her. She bit her lips and then said, “Martin… Goddess Martin…”
Her hands met his and she looked into his eyes with the love in her heart for him so plain to see in them. Then she whispered, “Martin… You mean more to me than you can know… You have done more for me that you know…” She looked at the feathers and said, “If you are giving me something of you…. Then you must take two of mine… I know that yours will never grow back…. But I can have a part of me with you to keep you safe from the dark…”
She closed her eyes, her hands touching the feathers he held and said, “Take of me Martin…. Please…”
The gift, the gift… Oh how to accept it when you cannot see it within yourself in return?
