65. Once Bitten, Twice Sly

CENSORED Version: Click Here (censored for nudity)

Last chapter…

Horus and Hattie aged up (looking good, kids!). We got a quickie tour of Pili’s finished ‘improvements’, an update on how everyone is doing (Kebs still wants slaves, Nubs still likes books), and found out that Nafi doesn’t like man-stink (but omg, Horus can’t help it, okay).

Later we met demon-eyed Deshret and her stuffy Al Simharan wagon-mate Arsinoรซ, on their way to Sim’Caritambo (allegedly), and we got to hear a little story about how queens sacrifice themselves, but measures can be taken if they mess up and croak early (so inconvenient tho).

Onward!


Mosi

“Mother, I swear to you I’m fine!” Excepting the nausea, vertigo, and throbbing ache in his neck, of course, “I am only going to do a little light plutonium experimentation; nothing overly strenuous, I promise!”

“I don’t know, sweetheart, you’re looking quite peaky this morning…maybe you should stay in bed, I can make you smiley face pancakes and soy-milk hot chocolate?”

“I might remind you that I am a grown man!” However, one did tend to do more effective research when well nourished, “but, as I have not yet had breakfast, yes, that sounds lovely, thank you, mother…”

“…do you have licorice gumdrops for the eyes?”

By the time he was finished his pancakes (saving the licorice gumdrops for last, naturally), Mosi was feeling more like himself than he had in years; his mother claimed he’d been attacked by a vampire, which is not a thing people were normally pleased about.

Mosi, however, couldn’t remember the last time he’d been filled with such vigor and clarity of mind! Perhaps it was the attack, perhaps it was only the natural course of hormones leveling off, but for the first time since the onslaught of adolescence, his mind temple was bright with possibility.

“Good heavens!”

“Omg, Mosi!” Gasped nipples Artemis.

“Hey, man, how you feelin’?”

“It’s not what it looks like–”

“Except it totally, is.”

“Wow.”

“I thought you were in bed.”

“Yeah, like, weren’t you attacked by a bear or something?”

“Bed…yes…and then…pancakes; there was a vampire…and…breasts…”

“Stop staring at my tits, perv,” his sister scolded him, “and you can’t tell Lena, okay?”

“Okie dokie.”

“Omg, this is getting too fully weird for me,” muttered his sister, rising to fish for something on the floor.

“Better?”

Oly pouted, “no.”

Mosi found, for the first time in his entire life, that he agreed with the pale idiot; though he felt it may not be prudent to say so.

“Forgive me, Artemis…apparently the hormones are still an issue; are the pair of you–ah–engaged in an amorous–er–”

“Yes, okay? And you can’t tell Lena; her and Oly just had an awkward dream thing, and she needs to chill for a bit before we drop this bomb on her–”

“Well, certainly! However, Artemis, as you well know, mother has always said that honesty is the best policy, and I simply couldn’t sleep at night if I kept something from–”

“Is this little fucker bargaining with us, harpy?”

Artemis sneered, “yes…what’s it going to take, meathead; we’re listening.”

“We?”

“We.” Mosi had never seen his sister’s face make that kind of expression before…was she batting her eyes?! Perlexing.

“Manipulation; I like it!” The ignoramus turned it’s smirk in Mosi’s direction, “we.”

“Um, so, maybe if I’m very quiet, could I stay and…”

“No, Mosi; you can’t watch.”

Oly made a weird sound, “I mean, that’s kind of flattering tho–”

“No, Oly.”

“Come on, there must be something else you want…?”

“As a matter of fact, yes, Artemis; there is something else I want.”


Artemis

“This is a terrible fucking idea.”

“No, harpy, this is a brilliant idea…it’s okay, you’ll learn; all of my ideas are brilliant.”

‘Like hell they are,’ she didn’t say it out loud, though; when had hurting Oly’s feelings suddenly become a thing she was worried about? FFS, this relationship stuff was already a pain in the ass.

Oly paused on Primrose Pennyroyal’s porch, “okay, so when we get in there, let me do the talking…”

“…with any luck, Grim Gram isn’t even home; it’ll go a lot smoother if she’s not.”

“I have a terrible feeling about this…maybe it’s guilt?” She’d never felt guilty about tricking Mosi before, what was happening to her?

“Hey kid, don’t worry about it? That little shit is blackmailing you, right? He totally has this coming!”

“This is all your fault,” Artemis heard herself mutter, “I’m high on some kind of bullshit feelings and I’m turning into a mushy sap…if I start doodling hearts all over my research, throw me off of a cliff please.”

Oly snorted, which probably didn’t mean “sure thing, Artie!” but who cares; kisses are nice and suitably distracting in the face of misplaced guilt.

Artemis felt like she probably owed Mosi an apology for all the times she disdained his lack of hormonal self-control, but frankly she was more likely to set her hair on fire than give him the satisfaction.

“Good afternoon, Mastress Oly; I apologise, but Lady Primrose is not at home, would you and Miss Osiris like some tea?”

“Balsam! Just the cat we were hoping to see!”

“You are here to visit me? That is…rather unexpected.”

“Absolutely, Sammy my friend!” Artemis felt like Oly was laying the enthusiasm on a bit thick, but she didn’t really know much about changelings in general, or Balsam in particular…maybe that’s the angle you needed to come from?

“Hey, so Artie and I need you to do us a really weird favour!”

“Of course, what do you require of me?”

Wow. Just like that, huh? Man, she needed a Familiar.


Selene

Everything was a mess; a complete and utter disaster.

It was all her own fault, of course; this is what happens when you steal and try to trick people…she’d brought all of it on herself, and she deserved it! And what’s worse, she dragged other people along with her, and abused magic for her own selfishness.

‘No wonder Oly didn’t want me…’

Artemis might be a bit mean sometimes, but she was confident, and smart, and she would never do anything stupid in a moment of weakness to make herself feel better. And, well, fair enough, Artemis stole books too, but only because of Selene!

‘No wonder Oly likes her instead of me.’

And then there was Coltsfoot…that poor fellow! Selene had done the worst by him of all! Firstly she’d tricked him into betraying his grandmother’s trust by abusing their friendship…

…and then somehow, she’d dragged him into her twisted fantasy; he was gentlemanly enough to insist that it was his doing, but Selene knew the truth.

“You’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen, Lena, and if that was all you were, maybe I could resist, but you’re also the nicest person I know; you’re nice to everyone, just like my mom! You’re even nice to a massive weirdo like me…”

And maybe, maybe, if that’s where he’d left it, Selene might not have used him, again, to make herself feel better in the wake of Oly’s rejection; but Coltsfoot was on roll…

“I’ve always wanted to tell you, but I’ve just never been brave enough, especially since you’re best friends with Oly, and there’s no one cooler than Oly…”

“Oh, Colt, no! You’re just interesting in a different way than Oly!” She was only trying to make him feel better…and, it wasn’t a lie; Coltsfoot was genuinely one of the most interesting people she’d ever met! “I think you’re a truly wonderful person–”

A simple ‘thank you’ would have sufficed…but then, people have different ways of expressing gratitude, and Selene would be lying if she’d said it wasn’t a lovely kiss…and it was also lovely to be kissed.

Perhaps it was the sting of fresh rejection, or the flush of unexpected flattery; mostly likely some combination of the two…in any case, Selene made no attempt to put an end to the kissing. In hindsight, it probably hadn’t been wise to allow it, as they were both practically naked and the air was thick with desperate vulnerability.

‘As much as dream air can be thick with anything…’

Thick with foolishness, that’s what; she hoped Coltsfoot didn’t hate her now…she’d gotten carried away! All that emotional high and low, and then the nakedness, and his nakedness got a bit, um…excited…

…and then she reached for areas she probably shouldn’t have…

…it’s truly amazing how something like that can escalate so quickly, given the right environment and lack of supervision.

But it was only a dream, wasn’t it? Granted, a very real dream.

Though, it had felt as though they were being watched, and judged, by some unseen presence…

What must he think of her? Seducing him like that! Taking advantage of his declarations of admiration and their inappropriate clothing situation…it was so embarrassing!

‘I’ll never be able to look him in the eye again!’

Two friendships spoiled in one dream…and for what? To appease her vanity?

Selene had never felt so ashamed of herself…so…low…

“Selene…”

“Hello? Is someone there…?”


Footnotes:

Thanks to InfraGreen for letting me borrow Bud (you may have to wash his eyes out with tear-free soap, tho; whoopsie!); he is truly a genius at looking unimpressed ๐Ÿ˜‰

Whose dream was that, anyhow? Selene says hers, Colt’s like “no, mine!”…well, whoever the credit goes to, it sure was pretty vanilla there in the end (snerk, get it?); disappointing, I feel like that BDSM gear failed to deliver on a promise.

Here, have a nice jungle cat:

Nice kitty: “HAPPY SIMMING!!”

  1. Me whenever I see Bud, a dog I spend ample time with every day without fail: “LOOK IT’S BUD ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜”

    Looks like there were two cocks covered with curly hairs too amirite.

    Also, pleeeeeease make this adventure for Oly and Artie pay off. The energy between them is so good…Oly’s face between Artie’s ample bewbies is even better.

    1. Bud is like a unicorn, ok; always excitement to see Bud! ๐Ÿ˜

      “Looks like there were two cocks covered with curly hairs too amirite.”
      I woke Rosie up cackling at that; she hurrrrf’d.

      Artie’s bobbles surprised me with their ampleness! O.O
      I mean, maybe if they’re very good little beans and take the shenanigans I throw at them with good grace? ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  2. LOL, whenever someone has to remind their parents that they’re A GROWN PERSON, MOM, it makes them sound even younger. Of course Mosi of all people would be enthusiastic about the whole vampire-turning thing. For science?

    IDK why Oly’s mohawk surprises me every time, rofl. ALSO DAMN, HELLO ARTIE JUBBLIES. Oly must be having a good time~ ๐Ÿ˜ It’s not what it looks like, my ass (or Artie’s nipples, apparently.) Awww, they’re so smitten. โค

    OMFG Mosi asking to stay. I about DIED. LOLLLLLLLLLLLLL. Always so scientifically minded, that's our Moze.

    I need a familiar too tbh.

    I feel so bad for Selene. ๐Ÿ˜ญ And yikes, she sure made things awkward with Oly but even more awkward with Coltsfoot. Can you lose your virginity in a dream, or only your dignity? At least he seemed to have a good time… It was cute how his dorky self was so into her, but man, it was kind of out of pity (both for herself and him), right…?

    1. I mean, is there even ANY better situation than that?? Now he can experiment on HIMSELF ๐Ÿ˜ฎ (kekekekekeke)

      Oly’s mohawk is magical; remove the hat and POOF, perfectly coiffed!
      Speaking of magical things that are huger than you expected; Artie’s jubblies (O.O); they startled me a little.
      Confirmed that they were having a good time tho (dammit it Mosi).

      Mosi makes everything 75% more awkward.

      Yeah, there’s nothing sadder than sex-regret and confusion! Dream sex is just as perplexing as it is unsatisfying; you’re not really getting away with anything! (except maybe getting away FROM germs?)

  3. Ships, ships, glorious ships!

    I wonder what Mosi blackmailed them with. Could be a number of greedy, horny ideas. Little vampire with the lust of a 17 yo boy…not a good combination.

    Olymis looked great together. Canโ€™t wait to see what tricks are up their bras.

    Awww…Balsam. What a good kitty! He reminds me of a nice butler.

    And then Colt and Lena. Lol! Both of them didnโ€™t know what came over them, Iโ€™m sure. But I bet those dreams happen again. Theyโ€™re very convenient. 1. You canโ€™t get caught by parents or prying eyes, 2. No pregnancies! 3. No disease, so therefore, no protection! And clean up is easy. You just wake up. (Although Colt might have a bit of a problem with his sheets.)

    1. I got a harbour full of ships! Okay, like 3… maybe 4. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Mosi agreed not to tell Lena about Olymis in exchange for [censored] ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
      Involving Balsam (who is the nicest butler/familiar!)

      Man, you’re selling me on this dream sex thing (VR when?!); keep all the best parts, nix all the extra bits no one loves!
      But hmm… you may need to edit that list a bit Pamazon, because *magic* or something ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  4. “I am only going to do a little light plutonium experimentation; nothing overly strenuous, I promise!” hehehe
    I think I’m in a dire need of a skull patterned bra now.
    What a unexpected climax of the dream! LOL! Being suspicious me, I thought the dog was Persephone, but everyone keeps saying it’s Bud, so I’ll go with it. Bud certainly had a very un-dog-like dream.
    Can you get pregnant in a dream. Not that you wake up pregnant or anything, but next time you enter the dream your dream self is pregnant? Just a funny thought. No one knows how these magic dreams work, but you.
    I guess my secret ship Anumis will never sail. Snubis maybe? Guess not. XD

    1. Right? I mean plutonium is pretty low key! ๐Ÿ˜€

      I’m right there with you my friend; and maybe skull patterned undies to match (not pictured, but she’s totally wearing them!)
      “What a unexpected climax of the dream!”
      ROFL; I see what you did there ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

      I would say that a healthy dose of suspicion is wise *at all times*, and I’ll leave it at that… but maybe Bud is just a cute little dream Bud! And maybe not (:o)

      I’d say that in a magical dream, all manner of things can happen that do (or don’t) effect the real world ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

      Annnd, don’t be too quick to dismiss unlikely ships; you just never know what can happen! ๐Ÿ˜‡
      ROFL, sometimes I just feel like a massive tease when I write replies! โค

  5. Dark WitcHazard: Oh Mosi meet too I love to watch is exhilarating but for research purposes of course! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Was kinda hoping for Selene to awaken her inner dominatrix but this worka to things will be hella awkward now bet Coltfoots over the moon thinking we bang in a dream so letโ€™s get married! Love Oly being all shady boo to Artemis gaining a conscience donโ€™t do youโ€™ll never be able to have fun again!

    Lover WitcHazard: Iโ€™m curious since this is a dream does that mean the sex was good because we wanted it to be good or it was good because Coltsfoot knows how to use his BBC? Also Artieโ€™s half naked body is phenomenal she definitely knows how to stay fit!

    Shipper WitcHazard: A new ship sailing strong and another under construction I like a challenge!

    1. GASP, Selene is a pure and vanilla soul, Dark! She doesn’t have a single domme bone in her body (probably ๐Ÿ˜ˆ)
      I wouldn’t worry too much about Artie gaining an inconvenient conscience; she’s just high on that new car smell…or new something else that starts with a c? ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      Lover, I’m going to go with a combination of “all of the above” ROFL; also, there’s really nothing to compare it too I suppose ๐Ÿค”
      But 10/10 Artie has a smokin bod and Oly is a very lucky little mohawk!

      There are many ships being built in the harbour! (Don’t peek under the tarps!)

  6. Mosi has an exquisite taste in socks, I let him have that ๐Ÿ˜€

    And poor Selene. But I have to say the cute nicknames eh… (how are they called? Artympia? It rolls of bad. Bad omen!) Okay, Artympia have, totally got my mood up about it, though.

    1. LOL, I’m glad you liked his socks, they seemed like the most Mosi-ish socks to me!

      Oh, well, you may call them whatever you please… I like Olymis because it sounds like what Oly would call a Christmas Vlog, OR a Christmas where you got Oly as a present? (I’m down for either/or myself ๐Ÿ˜€ )

  7. Haaaa Mosi โค๏ธ Apparently some of that freaky incest stuff still lingers in their family tree ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I loved that. Helped take my mind off how worried I am about him ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

    Intrigued to see what sort of mission he sent Oly and Artie on… looking for that love lubricant again? Hmm ๐Ÿค”

    And poor Selene ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I mean, yay for some dream action, but itโ€™s sad to see her so upset and feeling like sheโ€™s ruined two important friendships ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Though Iโ€™m certain Colt would disagree with that assessment ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. So we finally get to see the rest of the almost-kinky dream sequence that, let’s face it, Colts thought up. Wonder if he’d be wanting a real life repeat what with all the threat of germs and everything. Plum, that would be a total turnoff.
    So what are the dynamic duo going to do with poor Balsam? (I doubt he’d ever see himself as ‘poor’ anything for some reason)
