#MeMeMonday: Protecting the Lights

Welcome to Me Me Monday! A day to promote, strut, and celebrate your Me-ness!

Dyvian is doing a lot more than strutting as he tries to, ahem, persuade Leiwell to give himself over more completely to him…


“How?” I trembled at his touch. It would be so easy to give in to him. To believe he could take care of everything.

“Give yourself to me completely.” He explored my flesh with soft, persuasive fingers, finding all the vulnerable spots along my inner thigh. “Agree to serve me, Leiwell. Once you do, I’ll be able to protect your family from the outside world.” He breathed into my ear, “I’ll teach you how to hide Danyel and Tayel from the world.”

Truly, he’d discovered my weakest spot. Resistance had been rooted in my instinctive protectiveness of my little brothers. If Dyvian could teach me to do this completely, shielding them from the world, there was no reason to resist.

I’d give him everything, everything which had once been his. Part of me had always yearned to surrender completely. To return to my master.

This way I could protect my bright little lights and still belong to Dyvian. My heart would no longer be divided.

At least this was what I kept telling myself.


Are you intrigued? Want to know what happens to Leiwell next? What do Danyel and Tayel think of all this?

This is the story I tell in The Hand and the Eye of the Tower, the second novel in my Tales of the Navel/The Shadow Forest, which I’m revising for self publication.

Let me know if you’d like to see more of this!

One thought on “#MeMeMonday: Protecting the Lights

  1. Leiwell: Is that it? You’re just going to leave me with all these concerns until The Hand and the Eye of the Tower?

    Well, I may write something else. I don’t want to spoiler things, though.

    Leiwell: Couldn’t I have a little more than this? Please?

    (sighs, mutters to self) At least he’s being more polite than Quartz…
