 RE: Moving a Long Way Forward
Author: Laura Jaymes 
Date:   10-05-10 11:20

"Whatever it was you were after," Laura didn't flinch when he placed his finger under her chin, but she was more than a little relieved the bar was between them. Fleetingly, she wondered if she had to, could she beat him out the door and off Rikers.

"You're right - it certainly wasn't because I was the Mistress... because I wasn't, not yet." What she had been was a simple artist and college student who had made friends in the oddest places, and later, the owner of a small, simple art gallery in a run down, turn of the century, red brick building in Texas. What Laura had been was someone who kept her scars hidden, both inside and out. The 'Mistress' role was something she'd grown into, and something she'd accepted long after the first time she'd met Marius.

Her fingers curled around his wrist as the pressure increased. The way he touched her somehow set off warning bells, and at the same time, intrigued her, but it was the heartsick weariness in his voice, the shadows in his eyes, that honestly scared her.

Could she make it out if she had to run, from him specifically? Probably not. Bolting wasn't an option, so she sucked it up, determined to defy Hades himself if she had to.

"All that matters?" She snorted softly and tightened her grip on his wrist, and her tone was challenging, "Ahhh. That. Now that's Hades talking." Her eyes looked into Marius', searching for the Reckless Warrior she had painted once, "I remember him," Her voice softened and a slight, dry smile pulled at the corner of her mouth, "And he doesn't scare me." Liar. "We were almost... intimately acquainted... once."
