Had she remembered? It felt like a lot of details were still missing or foggy. Like who was this Hella and what did any of this have to do with her. Jess simply looked to him as he stepped towards her and wrapped his arms around her. It was an almost instantaneous effect. There was just something so calming about him and her arms wrapped around him, holding him to her even if it hurt.
His touch felt too familiar for it to be a coincidence. "Sort of, I suppose. I know who you are. You're Forseti... and I'm not really crazy," she muttered against him, at least she felt a little less crazy now, "In pain. My back hurts, but there is nothing there." Her arms stayed around him, simply because it did feel like his presence helped with the pain a little bit. That and the less she moved, the less it hurt. "What does all this mean?" she asked, still not understanding why she was involved in any of this.
Set simply watched her, curious as to what she was thinking. Her dark eyes didn't betray a thought as he looked into them. What was going through her mind right now? "I would never," he mused amused before she kissed him. That did surprise him, not that he was complaining as he kissed her back and wrapped an arm around her to keep her close as his other hand went to her hair. By Anubis, it felt good to kiss her. If he couldn't help it, he wouldn't be breaking the kiss any time soon. She just had that effect on him, even though he had only had her last night.
Had it been his misunderstanding or was his name said. That expression, and her look of pain. Forseti didn't say a word and instead walked to her and took her in his arms. "You remembered," Forseti whispered before kissing her forehead. "How are you feeling?"
Running a hand down her hair he gave a content sound. This was not Hella but he cared about her all the same. Asta hadn't won, thank Odin.
In the dreams, the mystery man, now she knew was Set had one thing he always did when kissing. She didn't want to but she needed tangible proof. Taking a breath she moved over to him. "Don't get used to this," Amira stated simply before leaning up and kissed him.
There was feelings in this but it wasn't her feelings completely. She'd know it, he always moved his hand in one way.
Set had been told not to tell her anything unless she realized it herself. That was what he had been doing. Just watching from afar. He could guess what she had dreamed and he felt sorry for that. It had been bad enough with Farah. "Very well," he simply replied, since he couldn't get around it, even if he tried.
Keeping his distance to give her a sherd of dignity, he followed after her and simply watched her, wondering what was going on in her head. Her words made him arch a brow. She was getting there. "And why do you say that?" he asked, looking to her as he leaned against a counter casually.
Jess gave the tiniest of smiles, the pain being too much to do more than that. It was probably good that he helped her, because truthfully she doubted she could go anywhere on her own. "I don't know. Somewhere...," she admitted truthfully as she slowly began to walk, slightly staggering at the pain.
It still seemed unreal. What she was seeing was real. The god was real or gods. This woman, Hella, had died here and Forseti had been there. Was he still here? Who knew how many years ago that was. It was unlikely. Still, that feeling that stayed from her dream... She had had it before, but where? The pain was making it hard to think.
Her weak legs were slowly carrying her to the spot that Hella had died and by doing so past the tents where they met Forrest. Jess barely registered him, but when her eyes fell on him a tiny part clicked as she whispered, "Forseti..." It made sense, at least to her sort of crazy mind. Gods could live forever and why not stay at the place that the person he had loved die?
Amira started at him wondering how he didn't get it. Though there were parts missing it was coming back, including the parts in between the dreams. She gave a small groan. "This conversation isn't over," Amira groaned. Refusing to lean on him, she reached for the wall. Doing the wall crawl she made it to the kitchen knowing he'd follow.
With some water and aspirin she felt only a bit better before finding some bread. "The dreams...you...your brother...it's not possible..."
"I'll help you," Xavier stood up, giving another stretch he helped her up. Wrapping an arm around her waist. "Where do you need to go Jess?"
He was still exhausted but was actually quite good. He had cuddled with a beautiful woman last night. She had been feeling good till this morning. She still looked in immense pain.
On the way to the test there was Forest who gave gave look of understanding.
The more she slowly came out of her dream, the more the pain lessened, but it still hurt like hell. Jess stared at him when he said that there was nothing there. "I didn't sleep on a rock. I... no she got stabbed," she replied, not sure at the moment what was reality and what wasn't. Slowly she took deep breaths as she put her clothes back on, the cold air making a sound case.
Was she okay? She honestly had no idea. "I don't know," she finally said, feeling like she was going crazy. Only then did she realize the name that was swimming around in her head. Forseti. The guy in those dreams was a god. If this wasn't a dream like she believed, then that meant that gods were real. The thought made her wake up like a punch to the face. "I think I might need to take a walk," she whispered, even though it was still dark and probably creepy as hell out there.
Hearing her throw up, Set flinched lightly. It wasn't a pleasant sound, but he stayed in front of the bathroom door diligently as she finished. He knew what was coming now.
When she stepped out, she didn't disappoint in berating him. Calmly he looked back at her. "You wanted it as much as me," he simply replied, a little surprised she hadn't hit him. He kind of thought he would. The question confused him, but slowly he moved to her side, though not touching her, feeling like she would just hit him. "It's okay," he whispered softly in a reassuring voice.
Xavier hadn't remembered falling asleep, though apparently he had. Xavier woke up to her going on about her back. Blinking to her confused, he moved stiffly, not able to see any marks or anything. "Did you sleep on a rock or a root?"
What a strange reaction, he yawned rubbing his arm but still managing to look concerned at the same time. "Are you okay, Jess?"
God, she had slept with him! Parts was coming back from the back room and in her bed. Twice. Either she was burning up, or the thought made her angry. In the bathroom she threw up twice before scrubbing her teeth and using a lot of mouth wash.
Opening the door, she leaned against the railing and glared at him. "You took advantage of the fact that I was drunk! Asshole!" She winched at the headache, it was the only saving her from hitting him. Then she saw him as the same man in the dream. "What's happening to me?"
Set looked to her. "You must be crazy, if you think I'm leaving you alone for even a second after this," he told her seriously before chuckling slightly at her joke, "I imagine it is. Not that I have a lot of experience with it, but yeah... I would hope so. Am I not the reason you should be alive?" He couldn't help a small teasing grin before he did move beside her, carefully wrapping his arms around her to keep her right there.
Set had slept soundly, his arms still around her when he heard her say his name, his real name. Still waking up he barely understood what she was muttering before he heard the insult. Opening his eyes, he looked to her.
"Charming, first insult me, then ask for help," he mused teasingly without any malice before helping her up carefully so they could go to the bathroom, "You had a drink too many, it seems." Though truthfully, the last time he had seen someone look so sick it had been Farah.
Listening to what Forseti said, Hella knew he was right. She could hardly justify her trying to attack her, let alone anything else. Forseti's anger was natural, especially considering that he was trying to protect her. "Of course not," she replied slowly, watching the door that her sister had just been taken away through.
With her sister now gone she felt the weight coming off of her shoulders and she was dead tired. Slowly she laid down on her stomach and rested her head on Forseti's lap. "A life with you?" she asked softly before slowly drifting to sleep, her arms coming around him.
Jess woke up with a start, her entire back searing in pain. It felt like she had been stabbed. Panicking, she tried to reach the spot, tried to figure out if there was a knife in her back or if she was bleeding. Not being able to reach, she sat up under pain, tearing off her jacket and other top clothes, despite how cold it was. It was still dark, very early probably.
Seeing Xavier beside her, she shook him awake. “My back… my back,” she repeated over and over in a shaking voice, her eyes wide with panic and pain as she stripped the last of her upper clothes. At the same time all she could think of was the one person that would make her feel safe at this moment. Forseti. If she stopped to think on it, she would realize more.
It was very clear that above all, she loved him, and he cared about her. Of course, she knew she'd need to make a sacrifice for them. Weakly she moved over. "I didn't know how much...stay with me while I rest? Dying is exhausting," Farah said softly before she let a content sound out. "I need to be alive for a reason."
Sleep was winning just being around him was safe.
The first thing that hit her was the strongest nausea in the world, second felt like two buildings clashing together. Finally was the warm, naked and very hot body. "Set.." She moaned moving slowly to not upset her stomach before it hit her. Set, the god, past lover...
"This is impossible..." She murmured before she knew they had sex. "You...bastard..." She started before feeling her stomach churn. "Help me to the bathroom, please."
"She will be sent not to a little town but to a more remote hell where she will need to defend herself. She's banished but this will not be easy. You cannot even deny with her attempt on your life and vile words she should be handed an easy life," Forseti said quietly butthere was anger in his tone.
"Take her...and any attempts..." Forseti stopped before sitting down tiredly. "She will be gone and you will have your life."
Hella looked to Forseti confused when he spoke to the guards. Watching them take her sister away, she knew there was some truth to it, even if she didn't want to admit it.
"What did you tell the guards?" she asked curiously as she leaned against his side, her head settling against his shoulder. She was dead tired and really all she wanted to do was sleep right about now.
Set didn't find those words funny at all. "Of course, I want to keep you alive," he said seriously, looking into her eyes before kissing her once more, "Why wouldn't I?" At least to him he was quite clear in his affection for her, even if it didn't always translate well.
"I missed you too," he said softly as he sat down on the bed to look at her, "What happened?" He knew the gods. They didn't give people their lives back from the goodness of their hearts,
Forseti wanted to gut the woman right there. Instead he gritted his teeth and let her speak. Looking to re guards he gave a slow smile. Quietly talking to them he nods when they understand. She was alive but where he would have her, she'd wish she was dead.
"That's all then, good bye," Forseti said before returning back to Hella. Hoping she wouldn't be too crushed by all this.
Watching Osiris go, she rested back tiredly before seeing Set. Giving a smile, his reaction was warming. Welcoming the kiss and touch she stroked his cheek. "Someone wants to keep me alive."
Thoroughly exhausted she smiled. "Thank you, I would miss you."
Osiris smiled at her words. "I do and you are right. Conventional is definitely not a word to be used here," he mused, pressing a kiss to her forehead, "See you. I should get Set." It was easy enough to find him. He was sulking in his usual corner.
It took Osiris several tries to convince him that Farah was alive, but when he succeed he ran to her, throwing the doors to her chamber. He stared at her, almost in disbelief. "By Anubis, you really are alive...," he whispered as he slowly made his way to her, his eyes running over every inch of her before his hands did the same when he was close enough before he finally kissed her, "You don't know how relieved I am." That was an understatement.
Hella smiled at him saying that. It felt good to know that he would stay with her. "Thank you," she replied as she watched him get up to get Asta. Strangely, she didn't feel nervous or anxious. She was just... ambiguous. Seeing Forseti so nervous, she gave a chuckle, flinching slightly at the pain. "More ready than you, I would say," she teased lightly as she watched him. Still, she did reach out to take his hand.
When Asta was led in, naturally her hands tied up, Hella simply looked to her sister. A small smirk appeared on the older sister's lips. "Well, I have to say you are a lot tougher than I thought. Or should I credit that to your new watch dog? Finally found someone else to protect you. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. You always need someone to hide behind. Seems like you finally figured out to secure such protection by spreading your legs. Congratulations," Asta told her in a heinous way. "Good bye, Asta," was all Hella said, looking at her sister calmly.
Smiling softly Amira kissed back, soothed by him and his words. Set did care for her, yes, but it felt as if it wouldn't be long. Running a hand over his cheek she nodded. "He does, and so do you. All in different ways.,,certainly isn't conventional," she mused. "I'll see you soon."
When he left she eased back, trying hard to remember what had been said, only that she needed to save them as they have saved her.
"I'll always stay with you," Forseti said before standing up, asking the guard's to bring her in. He waited valiantly. He was likely to hurt Asta but would try and keep his cool. Returning back to her he smiled softly.
"Are you ready?" He asked anxiously.
With her life trust and loyalty was something that she didn't give away easily. Hella was glad that Forseti understood that and appreciated the bits she gave him. "Rest and meeting my sister? I believe those cancel each other out," she pointed out with a chuckle, though the movement made her grimace as her back moved, "Yes, I probably should." It seemed right. If she never saw her again, then there should be a good bye.
His words brought a flush of happiness to her cheeks. She had changed his world. "I guess I can't really argue with that," she finally gave in, since he truly seemed to want to believe it, "Can you... stay with me while I rest?" She knew it was silly, but she felt safer with him close and her sense of security was a little shaken. Keeping his hand in hers, she tilted her head up to kiss him softly.
Osiris had to chuckle. "There is clearly no other ulterior motive to this," he mused as he ran a hand through her hair, "But you are right. He will likely lock you away, as much as he can, at least. You mean a lot to him, even if he doesn't know how to show it." His brother would likely never get the hang of that.
Listening to what she said, he nodded. He wasn't phased by it. "A human can consider themselves enlightened when they have learned not to fear death. I will be waiting for you when it happens," he assured and leaned in to kiss her softly, "You should strongly consider, if you share this information with Set. I don't think he would take it as well." Continuing to run his hand through her hair, he smiled to her gently.
"I know, and thank you...you should rest. Do you want to say good bye to her first?" He asked, though he'd be there to make sure there was no attempt again. Hella meant a lot to him, therefore he'd let Asta in one more time. He gave a small chuckle. There was something to the sex, yet she was a positive change in his life.
"You changed my entire world, Hella. If that isn't worthy of an Oracle. I don't know what is."
"You should kiss me before you go...Chances are Set won't let anyone near me for a while," Farah tried to mus3 before licking her lips. She still felt awful but she wasn't dead at least. "I think I may need to die soon to fulfil what she said...I don't mind though...I died free rather than a slave."
It didn't bother her if she loved two men, it was in different ways. Also she knew there wasn't a true future.
Osiris frowned at the description of the woman. "You would not be the first to see this woman. Quite a few have reported seeing her before," he replied thoughtfully as he helped her sit up, "I think that should be my line. I didn't come back from the dead just now. I'm glad you are alive, Farah." He squeezed her hand with a small smile and kissed her forehead.
Running a hand through her hair, he looked to her before thinking. "I think I should tell the other two. Can't keep them in their pity forever. That or they have already gone over to killing each other," he mused, finding the dynamic between his brother and Marnin amusing.
Hella looked to him, genuinely surprised. Did he really think that? It seemed crazy to her that he trusted her so much. "You are crazy," she mused softly, shaking her head lightly, "If it counts for something, you are the person I can trust most. If I ever had a problem, you would be the first person I go to." She squeezed his hand gently, not having a lot of strength yet.
"Is stabbed a word?" she asked before shrugging lightly, "I feel better, but my back still hurts a lot. Healer said no strenuous activities for a while. Also that you are a pain when someone you care for is hurt. Apparently you never left my side. Made it hard for her to do her work." The thought made her smile softly.
That anyone thought that highly of her made her flush slightly embarrassed. It seemed crazy. "You just want sex whenever you can," she teased lightly with a grin, "Well, then I guess I'd better complete the final few tasks." Seemed like a good place to start.
