The 13th Witch
by Beyond Blonde
As Kassie unhooked her toes from the bed rail Drake withdrew from her and vanished. As she lowered her legs he reappeared beside her reclining against the padded headboard. He draped an arm over Kassie's shoulder and pulled her up next to him then after getting her comfortably tucked under his arm said with a wide wicked grin, "You are an amazingly agile little witch."
As Kassie snuggled against him she laughed and replied, "Well you are awfully lithe yourself."
Drake chuckled and replied with a wink, "Incredibly so for my age." He snapped his fingers and handed Kassie the can of the real thing that had appeared in his hand. As she took a sip from the can he said, "The sun will soon be setting my love and I must leave you for a short time to feed. I will be back as soon as possible though. Because I will be ravenous I am going dine in house tonight only after I have taken the edge off my hunger elsewhere. Your dinner will be sent up at 8. There are plenty of your favorite beverages in the icebox." Drake paused then pointed to the phone on the dresser and said, "Should you want a snack before supper then simply pick up the phone, press the kitchen button and tell them what you want. For right now I would prefer you stay upstairs until I return. Feel free to enjoy the balconies my love or walk along the watchtower if you wish." Drake paused, grinned and snapped his fingers again and an ashtray with the eternal doobie appeared on the night stand by Kassie's side of the bed.
Before she could answer Drake took the can from her hand, sat it on his night stand then gathered her in his arms and kissed her until she was breathless. Kassie wrapped her arms around him and hugged him tightly. She knew he would leave just before the sun set so that she would not see the bloodlust return. She also knew he would feed first far away from here upon those whose souls were dark indeed. He would do this just in case the returning bloodlust proved too much for even him to control at first. He buried his face in her hair for a moment, then gently loosened his embrace. Kassie knew it was time for him to leave and unwrapped her arms from around him.
Drake gazed down into the amber eyes of the witch he adored to distraction and said, "Yes, tis time I departed my beloved. But I will return as soon as possible, and should you need me, you need only call my name."
Kassie smiled softly at him and she stroked his cheek said, "I will see you soon then." Drake took her hand, kiss the palm of it then as he let it go vanished. Kassie looked at the empty space where he had been, and realized how much of a void his absence left in her life. She sighed softly, then leaned back against the headboard of the bed. She reached over and took the eternal doobie from the ashtray and inhaled deeply. Her life was never going to be the same again. She had finally met the creature who had haunted her dreams for so very long and found him to be so much more than those dreams.
She relaxed and pondered the changes in her life that were coming for several minutes, put the doobie back in the ashtray and after getting up from the bed padded towards the bathroom. She had noticed earlier that it was stocked with a large variety of scented candles, bubble baths, bath salts, oils, lotions and perfumes, including her favorites. After lighting a few vanilla scented candles and placing them around the tub she chose her favorite bubble bath and poured a small amount under the running water. Then she sprinkled a handful of bath salts into the water. She grabbed one of the extra large fluffy towels from the shelf and hung it on the rail by the steps leading into the tub. She padded back into the bedroom, got the can of the real thing, the ashtray and eternal doobie, then went back into the bathroom. She sat the can and ashtray on the edge of the tub then turned the water off. After she settled into the tub she picked up the doobie, inhaled deeply then set it back in the ashtray.
As she leaned back she exhaled, flipped the switch for the whirlpool and let the warm whirlpool take her away for a moment. Kassie knew that though her life would now be filled with many pleasures and much happiness, it would also be filled with darkness and danger. Drake was who and what he really was, and she could accept that. She knew as much as he enjoyed the brief respite from the hunger he would not change or trade what he truly was for that pleasure. She could also accept that aspect of him. She just hoped that he could truly accept her for who and what she really was right now since she had no intention of changing that until she had finished some of the other tasks she was destined to complete in this lifetime. As Kassie relaxed and pondered her fate she noticed a bar of her favorite chamomile and sandalwood soap sitting in the soap dish on the right side of the tub. She picked up the loofah that lay beside the soap and dipped it into the water. Kassie smiled as she rubbed the wet loofah against the soap. Drake had done much to see to it that she would be as comfortable as possible here. As she rubbed her arm with the loofah she grinned and wiggled her toes in the whirlpool. Drake obviously knew that long hot bubble baths were one of the little pleasures in life she enjoyed to the fullest.
Just before she turned into a prune she stood up and walked up the steps of the tub. She reached over and grabbed the towel she had hung on the top of the rail by the steps and wrapped it around her. After she dried off she started the water draining from the tub then hung the towel on the rail to dry. She went walked over to the shelves where the towels and other bath accessories were and picked up a bottle of sandalwood scented lotion. After rubbing her body with the lotion she but the bottle back on the shelf, then reached for the body spray and lightly sprayed her body all over. She picked up the can of the real thing along with the ashtray and the eternal doobie and walked out of the bathroom. She sat the can and ashtray on the night stand then went to the closet and picked out a sexy purple robe that was hanging in it and put it on. On her way back the bed she grabbed her PowerBook and the remote to the stereo. Once she was comfortably propped up in the bed listening to some of her favorite music she booted up the computer. After replying to another e-mail from Joseph she went through the rest of her e-mail and after trashing all the spam she replied to some fan mail and letters from friends. After hitting the send button on her last e-mail she opened up Appleworks and went to work on her newest story.
As usual she lost all track of time as she entered the world of words that was her domain, and was surprised when what seemed to her only moments later a soft knock on the door signaled her supper had arrived. She bid the servant enter as she placed the computer on the dresser and went towards the door. She met the servant halfway and thanked her as she took the tray from her. The servant beamed at Kassie and after a quick curtsey asked her to just leave the tray outside the room when she was finished with her dinner. After the servant left Kassie took the tray into the dining area and placed it on the table. When she lifted the large silver cover she saw a sumptuous dinner before her. There were thin slices of pork, ham, beef and lamb. Small bowls contained apple sauce and a choice of gravies, including brown peppercorn gravy. Arranged around the meat were sugar snap peas, mashed potatoes, baked yams and corn on the cob. Under another small cover were fresh baked bread rolls. Kassie grinned and shook her head ruefully knowing she could never do justice to such a meal.
As she began to eat her supper Drake was putting the bite on one of his dinner guests at the castle. He was glad he had left Kassie when he had, and that he had chosen to take the edge off that hunger with a few of the boys from the hood before he dined upon his dinner guests Though he had been able to control it, the hunger had returned to him like a ravenous beast. Only the Dark God of the vampyres Himself could have controlled that beast. He had not felt hunger like for thousands of centuries. It was very close to the hunger he had felt when he had first become a vampyre. It raged through his body and mind demanding to be sated. Drake had planted himself in the middle of a bunch of boys from the hood as the sun had set. He was clad in tight black jeans, black biker boots and a red silk shirt. The boys from the hood had surrounded him grinning and thinking what an easy piece of prey he was. Then as the sun set the hunger had come over him. It hit him so hard and fast he threw his head back and gave a snarling growl that chilled the blood and flash froze the boys from the hood. What had seemed like the easiest prey they had ever seen had just turned into their worst nightmare. Looming in the center of them was the Ultimate Predator. He stood there with his head thrown back and his long fangs bared wide in a snarling growl that was almost a howl of both pain and hunger. They watched frozen in terror like rabbits as he fought what they knew was a worst beast inside himself. Then he stepped forward and grabbed the first of what were his prey now. Any of those pieces of prey would have killed him without a moment's hesitation, yet he fought the beast within and flung the boy away with life still beating within in him. As he grabbed his next piece of prey he heard it scream, "El Diablo!"
Drake gave a dark chuckle that chilled the boy's spine and said, "No child. I'm something much much worse than my old pal Beezie, and he'll tell you so when you finally meet him. I'll be sure and be there when he throws your soul on the barbie." Then he snarled at the beast within and sank his fangs into the throat of his prey. And he showed his prey visions of places far worse than hell. After a few moments he tossed aside the boy who had mistaken him for his old pal Beezie and grabbed his next piece of prey. It screamed and held up a large silver crucifix it wore around its neck on a long chain. Drake chuckled again and took the cross from the thug's hand and yanked the chain until it broke. He grinned evilly at the boy and wadded the chain and cross up into a small ball in front of him, then popped it in his mouth and swallowed it. Then snarled again at the beast within and sank his fangs into what he now thought of as Cross Boy's throat. As he grabbed the next piece of prey it pulled a 357 Magnum out and shot him point blank in the chest. Drake didn't even flinch when the powerful slug hit him. He just grinned at the boy and stuck his finger in the barrel of the gun and said, "Now pull that fucking trigger again boy. Make my night." Gun Boy knew without a doubt that if he pulled the trigger again he was a dead man. He let go of the gun and Drake shook it off his finger as he sank his fangs into Gun Boy's neck. As he grabbed his next piece of prey it bared its throat to him. Drake grinned at it and said, "Not even going to put up a fight, kid?"
The boy looked at him and with a rueful grin shook his head and said, "Hey man, sometimes you gotta do like the bitches, and just lay back and enjoy it" Drake roared with laughter for a moment and actually ruffled boy's hair before he sank his fangs into his throat. The next piece of prey pulled out a large knife and stabbed Drake in the heart with it. Drake simply shook his head, and said, "Tsk, Tsk it's supposed to a wooden stake. But those don't really work on me either, kid." He pulled the knife from his chest, licked it clean then as he took a step back, grinned at Knife Boy and said, "Ever played mumbly peg, kid?"
The boy's eyes widened and as he looked down said, "Yeah man, but this is concrete I'm standing on."
Drake merely grinned and replied, "I know." Then he gave a seemingly casual flick of his wrist . The knife buried itself up to the hilt right beside the boot of Knife Boy. Then Drake stepped forward again, grabbed Knife Boy, pulled him to him said, "Now be a smart little bitch like your friend, and just lay back and enjoy it." By the time he had gone through the 13 gang members who had surrounded him the beast was well under control. He finished his meal by reaching inside himself and removing the crucifix ball and the 357 slug. He placed those by the knife buried to it's hilt in concrete and vanished. The boys would later awaken and find the crucifix ball, slug and knife. One would exclaim as he examined the crucifix, "Damn! That motherfucker made a gum ball out your cross. The gum ball crucifix and slug would be kept as souvenirs of the night they had encountered something worse than El Diablo. No mortal hand would ever be able to remove the knife from the concrete it was embedded in.
Kassie was sitting the tray outside the door when Drake appeared behind her. As always Kassie knew he was there the moment he materialized, and smiled as she turned around and said, "Hi honey, you're home!" Then wrapped her arms around him and kissed him soundly. The vampyre gave a low purring growl of pleasure as he wrapped his arms around the witch he adored to distraction and kissed her back until she was breathless. He pulled them back inside the room and after shutting the door with the toe of his boot pressed Kassie against the door and kissed her passionately again.
He tugged on the belt of the robe she wore and when it opened he ran his hands up and down her body. He moved his lips to her ear and whispered, "Oh my beloved witch you feel and smell so good. You make me drunk with desire." He groaned as she pressed herself against him and he felt her nails through the silk shirt. "Oh baby I am so fucking hungry for you. I need to taste you. Then you must drink from me." He knelt before her, spread her legs and thrust his tongue inside her. He purred with pleasure as her juices saturated his tongue and the taste of her lightest shade of gray soul soothed his. He desperately needed the pure sweet taste of her right then. He needed to clear his palate and his soul from the taste of lust for his powers that all of his prey felt the second they felt them. He let the taste of Kassie's pleasure wash away the taste of tainted blood, let himself become intoxicated with the taste of her. After Kassie's legs began to tremble and she was moaning with pleasure he withdrew his tongue and rose to his feet. He licked her juices from his lips and fangs then ran a nail across his chest and as the blood began to flow grasped the back of Kassie's head gently and pulled it towards his chest. He felt her resist for a moment and he softly growled, "Drink my beloved witch." He snapped the fingers of his left hand while his right hand pressed her mouth to his chest and sank his fangs into the side of her neck as Dolly Dagger began to echo throughout the room.
Kassie stopped resisting and as her lips touched the wound she tasted the blood, and she realized why she had to drink. Drake's powers were at an absolute peak right then and he was experiencing the ultimate adrenaline rush. He began rubbing against her body to the beat of the music and Jimi's sweet haunting voice bid to her, "Drink up baby." Kassie drank up and felt his powers flowing into her. She realized even though he had done no harm to anyone he had fed from, he had glutted himself on the blood of many so that she could drink deeply from him right now. Drake made his blood flow freely and Kassie felt him passing on all that he could to you through that blood. She felt as if she were drowning pleasure and power. Finally Drake pulled his fangs from her neck the pulled her head back and closed the wound on his chest. As the blood on his chest vanished back into his body he bent his head and kissed her bloodstained lips passionately. Kassie wrapped her arms around him and dug her nails into his back as she pressed herself against him. She moaned as she felt his hardness pressing against her.
The opening notes of Guns N Roses, Anything Goes, began echoing in the room and Drake grinned as he pressed her against the wall. He moaned as Kassie's hands moved from his back and undid his black button fly jeans. Growled softly with pleasure as he felt her delicate touch upon him. She caressed and softly trailed her nails along his hard cock as her hand slowly slid up and down it. Drake slid one of his hands down her body and heard her moan deep in her throat as his finger slid inside her. He massaged her clit with his thumb and her G-spot with his finger, and felt her hand tighten around him as she stroked him. He moaned as her fingertips tickled his balls. He stroked her with thumb and forefinger until she whimpered and bucked against his hand.
As she stroked his cock and tickled his balls he moved his mouth from her lips and whispered in her ear, "You have the finest fucking pair of hands and most erotic touch I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. I think I shall build a shrine to your hands."
Kassie giggled and as she slid her hand down him and tickled his balls before cupping them in the palm of her hand and replying "I've got skills."
Drake gave a lecherous grin and replied, "You certainly do my beloved Mistress of Seduction." As he thrust himself against the dainty hand stroking him he moaned, "I have wanted the feel of your hands on me from the first night I discovered you between the pages and lines of your books."
As Kassie felt his finger thrusting deeper inside her she wrapped her hand a little more tightly around him and said, "Never judge a book by its cover." She heard Drake's purring growl of pleasure and agreement in her ear and felt him harden even more in her hand as he thrust against it. She could feel his excitement and it aroused her even more than the feel of his finger inside her. His other hand gently grasped the back of her head and he pulled her face to his and kissed her passionately as he stroked her G-spot with his finger and massaged her clit with his thumb. She wrapped her hand a little tighter around his cold hard shaft as she slid it down when he slid another finger inside her. She tickled his balls once more then slid her hand up and wrapped it around his shaft again. Drake groaned and sucked her tongue harder as he felt her hand sliding up him. As Kassie's juices drenched his fingers and her soft hand stroked him, Drake danced along the edge. Finally he unlocked his lips from hers and withdrew his finger from her. He took a half step back and grinned as he licked his fingers.
As Drake buttoned his jeans, Kassie tied the belt of the robe back in place. As they walked hand in hand back to the bed Drake grinned and said, "Did you enjoy your bath my dear? And you really do smell wonderful."
Kassie grinned back at him as she replied, "Yes I enjoyed my bath." She stopped for a moment, kissed him quickly on the cheek and said, "And thank you."
Drake grinned and replied, "You are most welcome. Is your writing going well my love? And is your PowerBook behaving?"
Kassie laughed and said, "The writing is going wonderfully and the PowerBook is behaving beautifully."
Drake smiled and said, "Good." He paused for a moment, pulled her into his arms and after he kissed her soundly said, "I love you." Drake did not wait for a reply but loosened his hold and stepped back from her slightly, then took her hand again and continued towards the bedroom. He sat down upon the couch in front of the fireplace, snapped his fingers once and as the fire started pulled Kassie down beside him. He took her hand in his, raised to his lips and kissed the palm of it then said quietly, "It is time you learned to heal yourself my love. You will actually be reactivating a power you once had in that other time and place. I felt you trying to reactivate it even as I healed your throat last night. I want you repeat what you did then on a much much smaller wound now." He tenderly kissed the tip of Kassie's finger then said, "Are you ready my beloved witch?"
Kassie nodded her head and he placed her index finger in his mouth, sucked on it for a moment then bit down gently with one fang. He removed her finger from his mouth after sucking a couple of drops of blood from it and looked at Kassie.
Kassie studied her bleeding finger for a second, closed her eyes and gathered the power. Then she opened her eyes and as she continued to study her finger concentrated those powers. After a few seconds she felt a tingling sensation in her finger and felt the small wound close. She nodded once at Drake and he wiped the drop of blood from her finger. He smiled as he saw no mark from his fang upon her finger. Though the wound had been tiny and not the least bit life threatening he was pleased at how quickly she had closed it. But she needed to be able to act even faster than she had, so he placed her finger in his mouth again and once more bit gently down upon it. He was very pleased to find the wound already closed even as he licked a drop of blood from it. After taking her finger and kissing the tip of it he said, "Very good my love. Though the wounds were tiny you healed them very quickly. Now heal this my beloved." He ran his fang down her finger quickly. Kassie winced slightly as his fang ran down her finger. Then concentrated and quickly closed the small cut. Drake wiped the blood from her finger and nodded as he licked it from his. He gently kissed her finger then leaned over and kissed her lips soundly. After he had settled back comfortably on the couch with Kassie tucked under his arm he said, "You are harnessing that power wonderfully quickly my love. Though those wounds were small, what you did to heal them is the same as if they had been life threatening wounds."
Kassie studied her finger for a moment then said with a wry grin, "Oh gee I can't wait until we practice the life threatening ones."
Drake gave a sad smile and replied, "I know it is not a pleasant thing to practice Kassie, but I do want you to be able to heal yourself of serious wounds. Unless you are willing to stay within these rooms when I am not by your side, you must learn to do this. And the truth is, I do no want you that dependent on me. I want you to learn to use all your powers as quickly as possible so that you may move freely about this castle and later outside of it. I did not bring you here to make you a prisoner of my love. I brought you here because I am the prisoner of the love I feel for you. Kassie, you are my heart. You are my soul mate. I know how very trite that sounds, and how overused those terms are, but in our case, it is so very true." Drake paused as a moment of past pain shadowed both their faces. The vampyre bowed his head and said quietly, "Especially that you are my heart."
Kassie reached up, gently stroked his head and said, "What's past is past. And it was the only way. You were like the Tinman in The Wizard of Oz."
Drake shook his head and replied, "Oh I had a heart Kassie. But it was stone cold and black as midnight on a moonless night even then. Immortality and power is all that heart lusted for."
Kassie asked softly, "And what does it lust for now?"
The vampyre raised his head and as he looked deeply into her amber eyes said, "It lusts for you. Because of the heart of another, it also loves you now for all the right reasons. And will for all eternity."
Kassie sighed softly and replied, "Unless you've been cursed as I have, love doesn't seem to last even one mortal lifetime, much less for all eternity."
Drake kissed her forehead gently and replied, "I am going to see to it that curse becomes a cure for what ails you. I know how I once betrayed you. And I know you have been betrayed over and over again in each of your lifetimes because of that curse. But I also know that what I now feel for you will stand the test of time." He paused, settled them more comfortably on the couch then said, "Kassie I am not some foolish mortal man who would betray that love for some stupid fleeting sexual thrill. I have experienced every fucking sexual thrill there is. None of them can compare to what I have experienced with you since you called me back into your circle of life." He paused again then looked down at her and said, "I want it all." He watched her face then asked, "How many fucking times have you heard that Kassie? How many stupid fucking men have said that to you?"
Kassie bowed her head as she sighed softly again and answered, "Too many."
Drake put his fingers under her chin and tilted it up. He looked into her eyes and said, "Well guess what Kassie? Sexually speaking I have had it all. Now all I want is you. I don't want a threesome, or foursome, or any other fucking number some. I do not have any overwhelming desire to watch you with another woman. If you have a hidden bi side I haven't discovered, let me know and I'll fucking shape shift into female form for you."
Kassie couldn't help but grin as she replied, "No, I don't have any hidden bi side. I've tried the woman on woman thing, and the threesome thing. They are not my thing."
Drake grinned and replied, "Good. They are not my thing either. You, are my only thing." His grin quickly faded though when he said, "And I sure as shit don't want to watch some other man fuck you. In fact, I'll kill any son of a bitch that touches you."
Kassie giggled and replied, "You vampyre types are so jealous."
Drake grinned that elegant evil grin of his and replied, "No as rule bloodsuckers really aren't. But us Dark God types are jealous as hell."
Kassie laughed then replied, "Well I don't share or play well with others either."
Drake nodded and replied, "I have been counting on that my beloved. I had a feeling that despite some of what you have written, you are actually past that seeking the ultimate sexual thrill stage of life. I figure you tried it all in your impetuous youth, but think that you have learned and grown enough to understand where the ultimate sexual thrill truly comes from."
Kassie smiled sadly and replied, "I was never seeking the ultimate sexual thrill. In each and every lifetime I have always understood where the ultimate sexual thrill really comes from. If I was seeking anything in this lifetime or any other, it was someone who could make feel me what you did in my dreams, or who could make me forget those dreams."
Drake stroked Kassie's hair and said, "I will make all those and a thousand more dreams come true for you my beloved witch. All your dreams will become a reality. Even those you have not yet dreamed." He tilted her head up gently with his other hand then leaned his head down and kissed her tenderly. The hand that had been gently tilting her chin slowly slid down her throat. His hand slid beneath the robe and caressed her breast for moment. His kiss growing more urgent as his fingers tweaked her nipple, and he felt her body arch towards his. He let his hunger for her grow sliding his hand down her body and massaging her clit softly as his mouth slid along her cheek. As his tongue flicked the outside of her ear he slid his finger inside her. As he lightly tickled the inside of her ear and gently blew in it, he felt her warm wet walls quivering around his finger. He chuckled evilly in her ear as he gently blew in it again and molested it with his tongue. He felt her walls quivering harder. Her growling moan of pleasure as she thrust against his finger made his balls ache. He wanted nothing more than to thrust himself deep inside her and relieve that ache. But he would not do that yet. They would have a million moments of pleasure such as this throughout eternity. And what he was about to do would see to that. He slowly withdrew his finger from her pussy and his tongue from her ear. As he leaned back he grinned and brought his finger to mouth and sucked it.
Kassie squirmed and as she grinned at him said, "Pervert!"
Drake sucked his finger once more then said, "And your point my dear?" As Kassie laughed he gathered her in his arms and said, "Hold tight my darling." As Kassie wrapped her arms around him they vanished from the couch. They reappeared outside a dark underground cavern. Drake sat Kassie gently on her feet then gazed down at her and said, "It is said an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure my beloved witch. I want you to fully learn to use your powers to heal yourself. However what I am about to teach you will help you protect yourself from harm."
Kassie gazed back into his cobalt eyes and said, "You want me to start learning to shapeshift. In fact, you are about to give me a crash course in that art."
Drake nodded once and replied, "Yes my beloved wise one. You are about to get an accelerated crash course in the art of shapeshifting. All the power you need to master that art is flowing through your veins right now. Before long you will be able to shapeshift into any form you choose. Before the night is over you will be able to change into a bat in the blink of an eye."
Kassie wrinkled her nose and said, "Does it have to be a bat? Is there like some cosmic rule that says it has to be a bat?"
Drake chuckled and kissed the tip of her nose. "No there is no cosmic rule that it has to be a bat. But they are easier to learn to shapeshift into than a bird. Apes are actually the easiest to become because humans and apes are already so closely related. Much more so than many humans care to acknowledge. However apes can't fly. Bats on the other hand are wam blooded nocturnal creatures who can fly."
Suddenly Kassie saw a vision that she knew was coming directly from Drake. In this vision she was once more in the arms of the other vampyre who had nearly killed her. But in this vision he did not sink his fangs into her throat because as he lowered those fangs she became a bat. As she flew from him in the form of a bat she saw Drake appearing beside the other vampyre. As the vision faded she found herself once more staring into Drake's cobalt eyes. Kassie knew he had made up his mind on this issue and the vision was his way of showing her why he would brook no arguments concerning this issue. She grinned wryly and said, "Okay a bat it will be."
Drake nodded once and said, "Then hold tight once more, and let us begin my love." As she layed her head against his chest and held him tightly they vanished. The reappeared deep within the cavern. Though most of the bats were gone there were a few still hanging from ceiling of the cave. Drake whispered softly, "Open your mind to me Kassie."
Kassie took a deep breath and opened her mind completely to him. And felt him gently drawing her into his mind. Then she felt him reaching out and entering the mind of one the bats hanging above them. The mind they had entered seemed so foreign, her first instinct was to withdraw from it in horror. But she heard Drakes soft soothing voice whispering in her mind and overcame her initial revulsion. She felt Drake's mind controlling the bat now. Heard his soft voice saying, "Time to learn to spread your wings." Felt the bat's wings slowly open and spread themselves. Felt and began to understand how those wings really worked. After a few seconds she began to flex those wings slightly. She spread them wide and felt the bat's feet release its hold on the ceiling. She panicked for a moment as the bat plummented head first towards the floor then felt the muscles in the wings she had spread wide contract. The bat's headlong fall towards the floor became an upward swoop towards the center of the cavern. Instinct had taken over and the bat was heading towards the opening in the ceiling as it had done countless times before. Kassie relaxed and let herself feel the wings at work. She could still feel Drake's presence observing and keeping watch over her as the bat swept through opening in the ceiling and soared into the night sky. Kassie tilted one wing and the bat changed direction. She flapped both wings and the bat rose higher and faster into the night sky. An hour later the bat flew back into the cave. As it clung to the ceiling once more Drake smiled down at Kassie and said, "Very good." Then he wrapped her in his arms and whispered, "Hold tight my beloved witch."
As Kassie clung to him they vanished from the cave. They reappeared in the bedroom of the castle. Drake sat back down upon the couch and pulled Kassie down onto his lap. When he had her settled comfortably in his lap he snapped his fingers, then placed the eternal doobie that had appeared in them between Kassie's lips. Kassie had done better than he had expected already. But the most difficult part was still to come. A few hits of the eternal doobie would make what she would do next a little easier. As she inhaled he said, "Now that you have experienced being a bat with your mind, it will be easier for you assume that form. Do not fight the change at all once you start to feel it occur and the change will be instantaneous. I will be with you the first time at least. But I want you to be able to morph on your own as soon as possible."
Kassie understood why they had come back here and why he had stuck the eternal doobie in her mouth. Experiencing being a bat with her mind was a piece of cake compared to actually becoming a bat. Kassie exhaled and asked, "Will I think like a bat?"
Drake grinned as she inhaled again and said, "Yes. And no. The brain functions of a bat that allow it to fly etc. will be in operation, but you will control those functions. Just as you controlled those functions in that bat a few moments ago." He kissed her forehead gently for a moment then continued, "I know you are a TLC and Discovery channel freak, and know about DNA etc."
Kassie nodded her head and said, "Yeah we have the makings of every creature on earth in us. And we even share the exact same protein strand with some of them."
Drake chuckled and said, "That's a very apt way to get to where I was going. Yes, you have the makings of every creature on earth in you. But now also have the ability to take those makings and become the form of any creature you choose. I chose a bat for your first becoming because of practical reasons. Once you master morphing into a bat, you can start practicing on morphing into other creatures." Drake paused, grinned wickedly and said, "You can literally go ape if you want."
Kassie giggled and said, "Oh I knew that was coming."
Drake's balls tightened slightly at the sound of that giggle and he replied, "Careful my beloved word witch, don't make me think about doing that. You know I would much rather us be cuming than doing what we are about to. But your safety may soon depend on what you are about to learn tonight." Drake wanted Kassie right then with a hunger that was harder to control than the blood lust that rose with that hunger. Kassie evoked a sexual hunger in him that no other ever had. She made him weak at the knees with wanting at times. Crazy with desire at others. She could make him harder with a wanton grin, than a bevy of beauties could with everything they had. He desired her with every atom of his omnipotent being. Craved her in some ways far more than he craved blood. Blood merely substained him. Kassie intoxicated his black as coal soul. As Kassie inhaled again he snapped his fingers once more and settled her more comfortably in his lap as Blackberry began to echo through the room. Rocking them gently to the beat of the music, thinking he would have her straddle his lap later and fuck him to this tune. As he reached out and scanned her mind he grinned happily to see her mind was running along the same track as his. After she exhaled he kissed her forehead, took the doobie from her lips and stuck in it his mouth. He sucked on it then took it from his lips and suspended it in midair beside them. He grinned evilly as he took Kassie's face between his hands. He bowed his head, placed his mouth over hers and exhaled. He felt her body relax and her mind open as that shotgun blast hit her. He gently entered her mind and helped her focus and use the power they were raising on the lesson later she must now learn. He raised his head and took his hands from her face, but kept his connection to her mind.
Kassie exhaled, giggled and winked at Drake. Then she closed both eyes and said, "It's all about being the bat." The air began to shimmer around her and the Dark God of vampyres was stunned speechless when she suddenly morphed into a small gray fruit bat and flew from his lap. Drake recovered in an instant and she heard his soft seductive voice in her mind as he morphed into a black vampire bat and flew up towards her. The windows near the couch blew open and the two bats flew from the room. The gray bat weaved and bobbed and managed to stay just out of reach of the black bat as they flew along the watchtower and in between the heads that guarded the castle. After a few moments the bats flew back through the open windows and landed on the bed. The air shimmered slightly around the gray bat for a moment, then the bat vanished and Kassie appeared.
As Kassie appeared the vampire bat vanished and Drake appeared beside her. He pulled her to him and kissed her with a fierce passion. She had once more exceeded all his expectations. Even though he first prepared her by taking her mind into the mind and body of a bat, he had still not expected her to be able do much more than assume the form of a bat for a few seconds, or possibly moments the first time she shapeshifted into the form of one. But his beloved witch had shapeshifted almost effortessly into the form of a bat and immediately spread her wings and taken flight. And she had flown with remarkable skill on her maiden flight. He pullled the warm body that had moments ago been the form of a bat closer to him and moaned as her skin pressed against his. Kassie kissed him back urgently and wrapped her arms tightly around him. He growled with pleasure as he felt her nails digging into his skin. He ran one hand down her belly and growled softly again as she moaned and arched towards his hand. He slid his finger into her and felt her warm wet walls contract around it as he stroked her G-spot. Her juices flowed even more freely and those warm wet walls contracted harder around his finger as his thumb began to massage her clit. She was sucking his tongue greedily and moaning deep in her throat as she pressed herself against him and rocked against his hand. He slid another finger inside her and felt her nails digging harder into his skin as she rocked against his hand. He unlocked his lips from hers and kissed his way down to her left nipple. As his tongue licked that nipple his other hand found its way to her right breast and began softly it caressing it.
The soft sound of her panting as she bucked against his hand made him growl softly again. The sound of that panting was like a double edge sword. It made his dick throb. And aroused the predator within him. He had heard it countless times as he had fed from his prey, and more than a few times in ancient days when he had lain with other true witches. Until Kassie he had never had it excite the sexual beast within him so much. Usually it aroused the predator in him far more because he knew that in the end, it wasn't him they were panting for. But the soft urgent sound of her panting made him so hard his omnipotent balls ached. He cold hard cock twitched with each little gasp of pleasure that got mingled in with those soft panting sounds as he licked and sucked one nipple and caressed the other with his fingers. He moved his mouth down her body, running his tongue slowly down the center of her stomach, and growled softly again as her moan of pleasure mingled with those soft pants. The sounds she made as his mouth closed over her clit were sweet music to his ears. As were those she made when he finally thrust his tongue inside her. The taste of her made him moan as he lapped at the inside of her warm wet walls. Her fine long legs were draped over his broad shoulders and she was bucking against his face as he hungrily lapped at those warm wet walls. Kassie was hotter and wetter than she had ever been from the adrenalin rush morphing had given her. Thoughtful pervert that he was, he had tried to direct as much of that rush towards the sexual as he could. It was why he aroused them both as he had before she had morphed. And as she had playfully evaded him and honed her skills on her maiden flight, that play had also served to sexually arouse her.
He savored the taste and sound of her as long as he could stand it, then the ache in his balls and throbbing in his omnipotent cock were too much he withdrew his head from between her thighs and moved up the bed, rolled onto his back and pulled her on top of him. He snapped his fingers once and as Blackberry began to once more echo throughout the room slid her down onto his throbbing cock and growled, "Don't miss a beat baby."
Kassie threw her head back as she picked up the beat and haughtily replied, "Like I ever miss a fucking beat!" She picked up and stayed right with the beat as she rode him. Her nails digging into his chest as she bounced up and down on him. Drake screaming along at times with the music as she rode him. His hands clutching her waist and driving her even harder down onto him. Kassie made that connection she sometimes made with music and Drake screamed louder as he felt that connection pulsing through his dick. And Kassie rode him even harder. Kassie was digging her nails in hard and bouncing on him in perfect rhythm with the music, driving him even wilder. Drake tried to take control of the sexual beast she was unleashing but found she had taken control of that beast and was driving it absolutely crazy. She stared down into his face, and the look in her amber eyes only made it wilder. Those amber orbs knew exactly what the beast she was unleashing wanted and needed. She grinned wickedly into the eyes of that beast and raked her nails down his chest. She threw her head back and growled as she ground herself onto him and raked her nails down his chest again. The sound of that growl combined with the feel her nails digging into his chest and his dick driving into her caused him to howl her name as he thrust himself up into her. He howled it again as she reached behind herself, gently squeezed his balls with one hand and dragged the other down his chest again. And howled it a third time as she ground herself into him and whispered his true name once.
