When the Queen of the Succubi speaks a truth, think about the words carefully…
Desires – Truths
By MZ and TeraS
Tera’s eyes twinkled at his words and she said with no hatred in her voice, “I will obey you if that is what you wish. I will suffer all the suffering and pain that you wish. I will allow you to do with me as you wish. But there are some truths that you don’t realize about me…”
She smiled and the love in her eyes did not waver as she said, “I control none of my followers. They are mine and I am theirs because they were willing to love me and I them. I have no more hold over them than that. If they wish to leave me, I have no ill will to them. I will not force them to stay for that is not the way of true love.”
Her eyes were soft and caring as she said, “My empire is eternal and forever because of that… I will be missed for a time… But my love for them will sustain them. They know that i would never hurt them or allow harm to befall them. My Sisters will go on… My Brothers will survive…. My loves and hearts will know that they are safe from harm as long as the love that I gave them exists. And it will… Long after I am dust upon the winds…
She reached out a hand and took the collar from his hand saying, “I keep my promises. I always have. I made Curtis a promise so long ago. I promised that I would love him forever. You have killed him within you…. But not within me…. I can feel him in my heart and soul even now. I know that he loves me and I him until the end of time itself.”
She smiled serenely and explained, “The body is a shell for the spirit within. His spirit is freed from you and is at rest in a better place. I cannot be there to comfort him, but I know that he will be cherished where he is. That is another promise I made him so long ago.”
She looked into his eyes and without looking down at the collar she unfastened it. Holding the two ends in her hands she continued, “Once you have love you can suffer anything for that love. It’s a truth that you haven’t learned as yet….”
She smiled and explained, “This is simply a piece of cloth with a buckle to hold it closed. It is a symbol yes, but the hold is not the collar. It is the promise. I promised Curtis that I would be with him and love him. And I did. And he did. I promised to allow him to find his own way. And I did. And he did. I could have forced him to obey me. But I didn’t. And he didn’t. So the hold that you believe is yours with this collar is not yours in truth, but that of Curtis.”
Her eyes did not waver as the love for Curtis filled her and warmed her inside. She held him deep inside herself where he would be alive forever…
Because that is what love is….
I do have my moments don’t I?
