Love for the Moon: Curse of the Black Rose Chapter 1
"Come to me…"
Lunaris looks around to see he's standing in the middle of a clearing, the moon shining down it as if it the moon itself was fixated on that area. His eyes scan the area as he heard the voice. "Who's there? Show yourself." He said as he hears it again. Lunaris then dashes towards where he believes the source is coming from. He soon feels a burning sensation coming from his forehead but marches on, determined to see who the owner of the voice is.
"Come to me…" the voice echoed out again. Lunaris started moving faster towards the source, weaving through trees until a small light appeared. "Come to me…." The voice echoed out again, his forehead now burning in pain but it feels like he can't do anything but move towards the light. He darts towards it until…
"Lunaris?" said Alythia, gently shaking him to wake him up. Lunaris jolted awake, sweat beading down his body as he looks to her. "Oh…it's just you." He said quietly, making Alythia's head tilt a bit. She takes a seat next to him, rubbing his head. "Are you ok?" she asked with a concerned tone. He nods in response, leaning in to kiss her gently. "Thanks for checking up on me.." he said with a small smile, making her blush in the process. She nods and looks to the door, seeing Valkyrie and Drago along with a black dragoness making their way in with a basket of fruits. Lunaris takes a moment to observe the black dragoness before he comes to realization. "Aren't you…." The dragoness cuts him off before he could get out his full sentence. "Yes, I wanted to strangle this little dragon but I realized it was for a good cause so I let it slide…..this time." She said, looking to Drago as he hides his face under the basket. She giggles and continues. "By the way, my name is Kage." She said as he nodded. "Lunaris, it's a pleasure." He said formally, despite being bounded to the hospital bed. She nods in return as Drago and Valkyrie carries the basket over to his night stand. Lunaris takes a moment to look through the contents, nodding. "This will work." He smiles before Alythia takes an apple, cutting it up into slices for him. He smiles and eats them slowly, being careful not to make any fast movements. Drago looks to him, smiling "Good to see you getting better." He said. Lunaris smiles in return with a nod. A knock on the door was heard before seeing Florence and Nectra entering. Alythia sighs a bit before looking back to her love. "Oh yeah love, thanks to that battle you had with Gage…" Florence soon interrupted her. "The Castle is in shambles and its going to take about a month to do repairs." She said, making Alythia sneer at her. Florence took notice of this and shrugs it off before turning around and making her way out. "Come now Nectra." She said to her, making Nectra nod once. "Yes mam." She said with no hesitation but quickly gives Lunaris a hug and rushes out before Florence could say anything.
Alythia sighs. "As much as I don't like her, she's right. And the doctor said it's going to be a bit before you come out as well." She said and Lunaris nods. He looks to his longtime friend, nodding. He nods back, almost knowing what Lunaris wants. "Why don't we go somewhere and relax?" he asked the girls, who all nodded except Alythia. Lunaris takes her hand and nods. "Go and have some fun love…I'll be here." He said to reassure her. She nods slowly and gives him a small kiss before heading out with the others. Lunaris looks to the sky as the sun was setting, wondering what his dream meant. His thoughts start to fade as he was now drifting off to sleep. As he slept, the mark on his forehead begins to change slightly, a black rose appearing under his natural mark, glowing in purple.
"Come to me…."
