Evolution Revolution--The Sable One Weaves a Spell

"The brave don't live forever. The cautious don't live at all."--Shango

Thanks for allowing me to vent with my last post y'all--back to Sci-Fi/Fantasy
********
So I ran a mile and walked another 2 today. I really had no choice, The Sable Sovereign had put into my hands an agenda of sorts.
  • Move around, eat better
  • LIVE
  • present my new list.
I was nervous about my list. The Sable Sovereign whom I now referred to as Sable was lounging in an absurdly large bathtub of herbs and essential oils when I felt her summons. My teeth clenched and I felt the hair stand up all over my body. When I passed the threshold of the bathroom there was rush of air and then the intense heat of a flame that did not burn my skin. When I focused my vision I was freaked to find that the room was now a dense meadow filled with African violets and honeysuckle vines. The ground was so comforting beneath my retail weary legs that I took off my shoes to feel the thick mossy grass beneath my feet.

"Whoa! you know, I never know what to expect when I get home anymore Sable. How the heck do you get woods in my tiny apartment bathroom?"

"Spare me your awe over something as simple as a bath child. Now, where is your list pet?"

"Oh yeah, I uhm left it in the bedroom, Uh I'll go get it." I turned slowly to leave, all the while marveling at the surroundings I found myself in.

"this is just to much man! For real, too much!"

"Shall I wait an eternity while your tiny mind struggles in a vain attempt to understand my power or will you get to the business at hand?" Her gracelful right hand descended beneath the aromatic water in the tub. Lavendar leaves fell from the area above her into the water and the scent intensified. The smell was intoxicating and magnificent. Yeah..I thought to myself. This is how I want to do it. My expectations are the problem, way to fucking low...I jumped when she spoke again and noticed that I still had not moved to fetch my list...

"My word but you are easily stunned! No wonder you have gotten so little work done in your lifetime....The list! Now!"

"Yeah, yeah, right. I'm going."

"You should know it in your heart. It shouldnt be wasting space on a page, but should be etched in blood in your consciousness! Quickly!"

"Uhm actually now that you say that, I do know it by heart." Still I looked around in awe and absently bent my head to smell flowers. I plucked a honeysuckle blossom from a vine near me and tasted the stem...it was other worldly and I took another. A brilliantly colored lizard toddled down a blade of tall grass and saluted me with a long pink and forked tongue. I focused on the lizard as it ran the length of the grass and moved through the mossy ground. I watched until I realized that the dark stone it finally rested on was the foot of man with thighs the size of tree trunks.

"Jesus!" I jumped back to take in the size of the gorgeous behemoth.

"Excuse me," he said. His voice was a 9 ton rumble that shook loose the organs in my body. He continued..."You may call me..."

"Midas?" My voice was a whisper, damn near a whimper. "You're Midas."

"Correct. You summoned me."

"What? No I didnt! Wait. Summoned?" I turned and looked at Sable who was standing behind me in a white cotton sheath, a daisy chain halo about her head. She was radiant and shimmered in the sunlit. He had beeen looking past me at her the entire time.

"Uhm, I'll just get out of your way." I turned to walk away and found myself a second later sitting in a plush seat where Sable's tub once sat. "Oh yeah, my list. right." I took a big gulp of air and pushed out a question instead. "Other uhm, like, people can come here? To Earth I mean? Where did he come from? What's going on?" I looked at Sable and Midas as they stared at one another from opposite ends of the everchanging meadow.

He spoke. "I have been searching for an eternity Sabela...I finally picked up your tracer once I breached the council records. You should have called for me sooner."

"I never called for you!" Sable was angry. Very.

"Oh there is still time for you to scream my name once more, Kitten. Believe that. Know it."

For some reason this seemed like the best time to start my list and so I began as I watched them stalk each other--
  • I have a thing for roughnecks, hooligans, troublemakers--in short I love Cave Men! I like to be told what to do by someone who knows what to do. SOMETIMES and these men typically fit the bill in the BEDROOM. I know how it sounds but hey, I like rough. I aint passive by any stretch of the imagination.....and I dont want to be led around by the nose in any way shape for form....just saying. I like Cave Men in the bedroom and men who react well in a crisis.
A platinum battle axe materialized in The Soverign's right hand. Her cotton sheath was now replaced by an armored breast plate and a chainmail skirt with splits to the hip at both sides. Her usually bare feet were covered by leather sandals. They were crouching and circling...battle ready.

"Holy Crap! Hey! What the hell? Wait...wait-a-minute y'all!"

"we're listening mortal!" His voice was too much. My eyes teared and I saw a blur as they engaged one another. She flung her axe, he caught it and launched it back. She blinked and it spun between them. the wind whipped in the meadow that had now begun to transform into a mountainous landscape. The yawning mouths of caves appeared from nowhere and everywhere. People began to peak out of their earthen homes to watch the spectacle in what was now an arena of some sort. My chair was the grand vantage point for the match. Their armor fell away to reveal fabric tunics and loin coverings as the two made contact in a Greco-Roman style wrestling match. I screamed the rest of my list at the top of my lungs.
  • I have a thing for good old fashioned competition! Healthy sport. Winner take all but the loser wins in having the experience with the winner.
  • I have a thing for aggression. Female aggression and ambition. The push to do what people say you can't!
  • I have a thing for Touch! All forms, all ways, all shapes! Contact! Contact! Contact!
  • I have a thing for LIFE! I want a life of MY making! Of my choosing and I will gnash my teeth and claw and fight for the life I want and I will have it! NOW!
I opened my eyes, standing on a high peak, a great Scimitar in the hand raised high above my head, a fist at my side, the bones of a multitude of liars cascading down the slopes. A voice echoed in my head, blotting out all other thoughts and sounds "It's time" it growled in The Sovereign's voice...."It's time"

My head fell back and my eyes sought the heavens, I opened my mouth and let loose my battle cry.....it's time

That's all for today. Be peaceful friends, be safe and be true...know that for whatever it is you want for your life that IT IS TIME. Make your move and keep moving....
Sci-Fi/Fantasy is life....

I think I too have a thing for touch, and affection. It just feels good. Smiles, laughs, good sleep. Simple things in life yet so hard to obtain on a daily basis.

I have a thing for roughnecks, hooligans, troublemakers--in short I love Cave Men! I like to be told what to do by someone who knows what to do

LOL. I can dig a passive woman, but I don't know about this one Femigog...

Femigog said...

Hey Don let me clarify! I like Cave Men BUT I only like to be told what to do SOMETIMES I am gonna revise my statement so that its clearer. LOL. I am not even remotely passive...plus that statement applied to mostly the ahem bedroom...LOL

Don said...

LOL. I hear you.

I understood exactly what you were saying. Just wanted to have a little fun with you. But I definitely understood what you were saying.

I love passive women. But not as much as I love when a passive woman exhibits a strong personality.

That is the true strength of a woman.

- Loving that line!

She flung her axe, he caught it and launched it back. She blinked and it spun between them. the wind whipped in the meadow that had now begun to transform into a mountainous landscape.
- I could picture this in my mind's eye miss Fem. Being sci-fi and all, it didn't take much to construct the visual in my mind. Nothing like writing something down in such a way for the reader to interpret it and more importantly put in an array of colors for the image to come to life. Do that thing you do miss Tee! Yes indeedy, Sci-Fi?Fantasy is alive and kickin'. Be well lady...

Gurl, this was so visual, i didn't want it to end...let's see this battle of will and sex, omg, this is great!

PurpleZoe said...

Your skill brought me there. I saw it all effortlessly. The visuals are incredible, and The Sable Sovereign is graceful forceful and deliciously archetypal as always.
Bless your higher-minded pen, Femi.

Thankyou also for the reminder.
It is time. There's definitely something that needs to be released sooner than later, so forward movement can continue with more momentum.

Peace ^_^

Love it...and agreed with Mr. Cage :-)
