WARNING: This story contains rape, torture, incest, and underage characters. Read at your own risk. Chapter 1: Berlin, Germany: The young man climbed up out of the bed, leaving the naked woman to silently cry. He looked out the window at the rainy city, chuckling to himself in both satisfaction and anticipation. "What in God's name are you?" the woman hissed as she curled up in the fetal position.
She was beautiful in body but broken in spirit, her inner thighs red from the blood of her torn hymen.
Her virginity had been taken from her to the sound of her twisted cries of pain and lust, caught in both sexual humiliation and fulfillment. The young man's smirk gained a bloodthirsty curl and he flicked his finger as if to say that there was something he needed to show her. The woman was dragged out of the bed as if an invisible hand had grabbed her by the throat. She hit the wall beside the man and crumpled to the floor, gasping for air with a welt worn into her neck from an unseen force.
He grabbed her chin as if to steal a kiss, forcing her to look up at him. She had spoken to him in German, so he answered in kind. His voice was deep and commanding, undeserving of someone so young, yet the power he wielded and the twisted depths of his soul were unlike any other human.
"In God's name you ask? In this room, I am God. To you, I am God. As of now, you are a broken toy. I'm leaving tomorrow, and while you'll never see me again, you'll never be free of me. You will spend the rest of your life with a heart filled with both fear and love, terrified of my touch but also longing for it. What man could ever want this impure body of yours after the things I have done to it?
What man could ever fall in love with your soul after I've bent it to my will? Once I'm gone, you'll think you are free, but the cage I've put you in will never disappear. Until the day you die, you are my property. But now it's time for me to find something new to play with.
I've become bored with you and this city and it's time for me to move on once again. I need some new feeding grounds." Rome, Italy: The book bag hit the delinquent's head like a flail, knocking him to the ground while his friends watched in shock. Standing over him was a seventeen-year-old girl, her face flushed with rage in a red as bright as her hair, the skirt of her school uniform gently swaying in the breeze, and the crucifix hanging around her neck gleaming in the morning sunlight.
"Wretched punks! You do not deserve the mercy of God!" she shouted, pointing to the graffiti being spray-painted onto the alley wall. The boy got to his feet with blood pouring from his nose. "You damn bitch!" He charged towards her with his fist rocketing towards her face, but she caught his arm and twisted it, forcing him to bend back and letting her knock him in the Adam's Apple.
As he fell back to the ground, one of his friends lunged with a knife in his hand. Forsaking her pride and hoping nobody would see under her skirt, she spun around and delivered a kick to his temple, knocking him out into the street like he was a soccer ball. The last delinquent stood, shaking like a leaf and holding out two cans of spray paint like they were mace.
The girl shot him a dirty look. "If you even think of getting a single drop of paint on my uniform, I swear in the name of Heaven that not even God will be able to find your remains." His small flicker of courage extinguished like a candle, he turned around and ran away.
"Oh no you don't!" Tossing her book bag aside, she sprinted after him. Down the winding streets of Rome, she chased him while trying to ignore the building pain in her ankles from the uneven cobblestone ground. It didn't help that her school shoes weren't meant for running. Regardless of this, she zeroed in on him like a missile, following him around every turn and across every open street.
She saw him swerve into an alley and skidded past it, grabbing a piece of a brick jutting out of the ground.
Getting back to her feat, she took careful aim and hurled the square stone at the fleeing vandal, striking him in the back of the head and sending him tumbling. "Just goes to show that you can't escape your sins. You'd better pray for your immortal soul when you wake up…" Catching her breath, she looked at her watch and swore.
She had gone out to get breakfast off campus but she had wasted what little time she had and her first class would be starting in a few minutes. "Helena, have you been fighting again?" The redhead looked up at her blonde roommate, Sophie, standing by her desk.
The classroom was filled with students all the same age, male and female. The girls were all dressed in plaid skirts with white blouses and knee socks, the boys wearing black pants and white clergy shirts with student clerical collars. Everyone carried a cross with them, either around their necks or on rosary chains. Helena had just managed to get back to school before class started and now all the students were waiting for the teacher to arrive.
"How can you tell?" "Because you're wearing that unmistakable face of self-righteousness." "I was just putting some sinners in their place." "Ephesians 4:32, you must remember to forgive." "And I did forgive them, after I gave them a taste of the torment that awaits them in Hell if they do not open themselves up to Jesus Christ and renounce their sinful ways," she shot back.
"Well I certainly hope you'll remember to go to Confessions when you get the chance." "Don't worry, Sophie. I will. Or at least the Disciplinary Committee will force me to before I can on my own." The door opened and a nun stepped in, sending all of the students scurrying to their desks in fear. Their teacher, Sister Olivia, was strict beyond measure. She was nicknamed the Sphinx, as in the Sphinx that the enslaved Jews made while being whipped and yelled at.
She had short blonde hair and glasses, a woman in her late twenties who would be very beautiful if she wasn't always scowling. "Now class, we will continue where we left off yesterday in translating Leviticus. Marcus, we had stopped at Book 6, Verse 1. You may begin." She spoke sternly, as if hungry for something to be mad about. One of the male students nervously stood up, holding his bible and reading off the verse in Latin.
If he got a single word wrong, she would assail him like locusts. One by one, the students took turns reading off verses from the bible, translating them from English to Latin. Whenever someone made a mistake, they would be ordered to make the death march to Sister Olivia's desk, outstretch their hands, and let her slap her trusty meter stick against their knuckles, each audible slash of the wood making everyone shudder.
Against her better judgment, Helena allowed her eyes to wander and look out the window at the sunny campus of Rosewood University. The school had originally been developed to help deal with Italy's high orphan rate while spreading the Christian faith, starting out as a Christian academy for children.
Eventually, other countries began shipping in their orphans after seeing the great results, and then families started sending in their kids.
It was now the largest and one of the most prestigious Catholic schools in the world, boasting a student body ranging from preschoolers to college students and with armies of new priests and nuns being marched out every year, ready to spread the word of Jesus Christ. Joining the clergy wasn't any kind of requisite for the school, but after 12 years, it became engrained in the souls of most of the students. "O'Connor!" Helena's head perked up at the sound of her last name being called and her face became red in embarrassment.
It was her turn to translate but she had been too busy daydreaming to pay attention to the class. She had no idea which verse she had to translate, and if she asked… Sister Olivia would practically crucify her. "Helena O'Connor, come to the Disciplinary Committee's office immediately." The announcement from the PA system let her release a sigh of relief.
Punishment had saved her from punishment. All the students shrugged, well used to hearing this commandment. "Sorry, Sister Olivia, but I must leave," she said sheepishly. The teacher scowled at her, knowing that Helena hadn't been paying attention.
"Go, but I still expect you to translate when you get back." "Yes, ma'am!" Taking her book bag with her, Helena stepped out of the classroom and began walking as fast as she could down the hall. Running was against the rules, but with how large the school was, she needed to put in some speed and reach the committee before they sent out another announcement.
Stepping out into the open campus, she allowed herself a moment to enjoy the sunlight, breeze, and smell of grass, and then took off in a run. She passed by many other students in her rapid dash, both male and female. Normally Catholic schools like these had gender segregation, but with how many students were joining the clergy, Rosewood Academy used the coed population as a way to help the students prepare for their vows of celibacy.
By having all these teenagers learning side-by-side in this holy school, it was simply a matter of teaching them to ignore temptation. Dating was strictly forbidden, and if they could graduate without ever giving in to their sinful desires, they would be ready for the clergy. She at last reached the building with the Discipline Committee, and after climbing two flights of stairs, arrived at the entrance to their office.
As she approached the door, she took a moment of catch her breath and straighten her hair. She stepped through an open doorway into a waiting room, with an assistant behind a desk, a corridor lined with doors, and several chairs and a couch in the corner of the room. Sitting in one of the chairs was a young man, though from the very brief glimpse she gave him, she couldn't quite tell his age.
He looked to be as old as she was, but he could have older, since unlike the other male students in this school, he was dressed in the black clerical jacket of an ordained minister. Though he lacked the official collar. She strode past him to the assistant's desk. "Hello, Helena. Same as usual?" the woman asked with a wry grin.
This was FAR from Helena's first meeting with the Disciplinary Committee. She sighed with a tired smile. "Hello, Mary. I guess they're waiting for me?" "Go right in." Helena nodded and walked down the corridor, reaching the second door. She entered a conference room, where five teachers sat behind a long table, glaring at her with judgmental eyes.
Two of them were priests and another two were nuns. "Ms. O'Connor, I'm sure you know why we called you here," the oldest teacher grumbled.
"I have an idea." A female teacher cleared her throat. "Three young men are being treated at the hospital, one coughing up blood with a broken nose and the other two suffering from concussions. When speaking to the police, they described you in clear detail. What do you have to say for yourself?" Helena straightened her posture and her eyes became steely.
"I was doing God's work, helping to cure this city of its sin. Why should I have gone easy on them when they will face far worse in Hell?" One of the priests slammed his hand on the table.
"That is not your decision to make! That is the job of the police, not a student of this school. Every time you act up like this, you give us a bad name.
We cannot condone your actions, violence can never be tolerated from someone who claims to fight in the name of Jesus Christ!" "I will repent for what I did and ask God for forgiveness," she said defiantly, as if to tell them that she did not recognize their authority. "You'll do more than that. On top of fifteen Apostle's Creeds and ten Hail Marys, you are going to go and apologize to those boys before the end of the day, understood?" He handed her a sheet of paper with their addresses and Helena bit her tongue, working to keep her temper in check.
"Yes, Father Brian." "Good, and to lighten your soul with a good deed, we have something else for you to do…" The old priest pressed down on the button of a nearby intercom.
"Mary, please send him in." The student Helena had seen before stepped into the room, letting her at last get a good look at him. He was quite tall and very handsome, with a square jaw, blue eyes, and brown hair cut very short but still kind of spiky. She actually felt her heart flutter at the sight of him but shook the sensation away with a retightening of her moral corset. "This is Xavier Michaels, he just transferred in. Show him around and help him get settled. The two of you will be sharing several classes together.
Xavier, this is Helena O'Connor.
If you need anything, ask her." 'Great, just what I needed. Now Sister Olivia is going to beat me like a mule because I have to miss class and show this guy the ropes. No, no, it's not his fault. I shouldn't be mad at him.' Forcing herself to wear a smile, she held out her hand to shake his. "Nice to meet you." He took her hand and looked at her with confident eyes.
For a moment, she thought he was going to lean down and kiss her hand.
"The pleasure is mine." Helena suddenly felt her face go red, but she had no idea why. "Ok, follow me and I'll give you a tour." About to step into the hall, she was stopped by one of the teachers calling her name. "Helena, remember: every time you cause trouble, you make it harder for yourself to achieve your goal.
You're facing a monumental task already. Don't ruin things for yourself." She nodded and departed with Xavier trailing after her. Leaving the waiting room, they started down the hall. "I've never met a Catholic school girl who could fight." "Huh?" "My apologies, but I could hear the conversation you and the teachers were having.
You sent three people to the hospital and called it "God's work", meaning that you were engaged in a combative situation with them. Considering that I don't see any scratches on you or even a mark on your uniform, you're clearly skilled enough to not get touched. Impressive." People normally condemned her for fighting, but there was no judgment in his voice. She tried not to blush at the praise, never expecting him to just reveal her true self with such intuition.
"As the teachers will tell you, it is not one of my best features. I've been training myself since I was a child in martial arts and other fighting styles.
They come in handy when I find an unapologetic sinner." "I take it those skills are for the goal that Father Thomas mentioned?" Helena giggled. "You catch on pretty quick." "I hope I'm not intruding." "No, it's ok. The truth is that my goal is to join the Swiss Guard and serve His Holiness." "I thought the Swiss Guard didn't allow female members." "They don't, but I'm going to be the first.
If I can prove myself, then I'm sure the Holy Father will allow me to serve him. What about you, do you plan to become a priest or do you have other goals?" "As it so happens, it's my dream to become Pope." They both stopped at the top of a staircase, Helena looking at him in shock.
"Really? You intend to go that far?" "Indeed," he said as he brought up his hand and lifted her chin. "So maybe someday, you'll serve me." Helena again felt her face go red and for a moment she couldn't move. She stared into his eyes, confident and ambitions, with her own eyes suddenly trembling and meek.
He then stepped back and moved down onto the first step. "Shall we continue on?" She nearly jumped from the question, as if awoken from a trance. "Oh, y-yes. Of course." She hurried down the stairs past him, and as she walked, he watched her and licked his lips.
"And that day will be soon," he said under his breath. Helena pushed that strange moment out of her mind as she showed Xavier around the campus. She found herself curious about this newcomer. "So where are you from? You speak English clearly as a first language but I can't place your accent.
You certainly aren't British, but you don't quite sound American." "I'm from a little bit of everywhere. I've been traveling since I was born, so while English is my first language, I've picked up accents and mixed them all together. I can certainly tell that you are Irish, from that hair and name, but I can also tell that you've worked to try and hide your accent. So why would a ruby beauty from the emerald isle try to hide her heritage?" She turned around quickly, her face flushed both in annoyance and undeniable pride from the flattery.
"Now you listen here, relationships among students are forbidden, both by this school and God himself. Don't go thinking that some compliments will win me over." Xavier stepped back, shocked by her outburst but still maintaining that small smirk. "You misunderstand, this is how I talk to everyone. I hope I didn't make you uncomfortable, I just find honestly and politeness to be the best policy." Helena's face paled and she turned away from him.
'Why did I get so worked up right then? Something is wrong with me today…' "A-anyway, let's keep going. I'll show you the cafeteria now." She brought him to a large brick building, the sides caked with ivy and moss that were basking in the sunlight. Through the large oak doors, they stepped into an expansive cafeteria. Long tables were set out with enough seats for hundreds of students, but now all were empty, save for the few kids who came to study during their free period.
"This is where we come for our meals at 9:00 am, 3:00 pm, and 9:00 pm. Because of how many students we have, there are three shifts for each meal. The older you are, the later you eat. The school does it to accommodate with the students' circadian rhythms. Come on, we'll cross over through here to the science wing." Marching past the empty tables, they made their way to the back of the dining coliseum. Halfway through the room, they came across a girl sitting alone, nobody on either side or across from her.
She looked about fifteen but was small for her age, with brown hair cut short and her head low as if someone had just tried to tickle her neck. She didn't have any books or even food with her.
She looked very forlorn, very fragile. As they passed by her, she looked up at Helena and Xavier. He smiled and winked at her, making her tense up nervously but with sparkling eyes. She had caught his interest. Reaching the exit, they stepped back outside. Just as the door closed behind them, Helena's stomach let out a loud grumble. She quickly turned away, knowing that Xavier would chuckle. "I. uh… I missed breakfast this morning." "Why didn't you grab something to eat in there?" "Because I'm trying to get us to our homeroom before our next class starts.
At lunch, I'll have to go and apologize to the three punks I beat up. Hopefully I can get something in the city." "Would you like me to come with you?" "Thanks, but it's not needed. Let's just get to class." "You're late. Detention, both of you." Helena tried with everything she had not to curse at the sound of Sister Olivia's voice. She and Xavier had just entered the classroom, barely a second after the bell for the next period sounded.
She put on a brave face and turned to the nun. "Sister, this is Xavier Michaels, the new—" "I know who this is, do not talk to me like I am an ignorant fool!" She then turned to him. "Being new to this class is no excuse for tardiness. You two will be here at 10:00 tonight. You'll need to wear some short pants for what I have planned." The whole class watched, praying for God to have mercy on the truants' souls.
Helena watched Xavier, waiting to see his reaction, and to her shock, she thought for a moment that he was actually smirking. "Spare the rod, spoil the child," he simply hummed, stepping away and making his way to one of the few empty seats in the classroom. "And Helena, I still expect you to translate that verse." 'Damn it.' The following classes continued on without anything out of order.
As usual, multiple students got a hard smack from Sister Olivia's meter stick for small infractions. Helena got it twice when her stomach growled.
Both times, she held a defiant scowl on her face, refusing to show any pain. Several times, the teacher directed the hardest questions to Xavier, but with his usual confident smirk, he answered everything with perfect accuracy and detail. Luckily they got a reprieve when the class had to a different building for Biology Class.
"Are you sure you don't want me to come along? I could help you keep your temper in check." Xavier and Helena were standing at the entrance to the cafeteria with students from grades 9 through 12 streaming past them to eat. "I'll be fine. You go eat. I'm more worried about the time. There is no way this will take less than an hour, meaning of course that I'm going to once again be late for class." "Well maybe there is something I can do to convince Sister Olivia to give you a pass this one time." Helena laughed and began walking away.
"Nice try, but that won't work. You'll probably just anger her even more. Relax; I'll be fine. She can't break me." Helena looked at the address above the door and then back at the list the Discipline Committee had given her. This was supposedly the home of the guy that she had knocked out with a strike to the neck. After the injuries he had received, he would be home, but considering the graffiti she had found him doing, it probably wasn't like he had school to go to anyway.
The house wasn't much, or at least any better or worse than the other pale brick houses lining the street. Above the door was the window to a bedroom, currently open. Back at the university cafeteria, Xavier sat alone. There was a tray of food in front of him, but he wasn't eating. He was merely spinning his fork around his thumb, smiling. Sighing and resigning herself to her fate, Helena stepped off the sidewalk and knocked on the door.
She just had to be polite, apologize, and get out of there without snapping. How hard could it be? Xavier continued to spin his fork, while under his breath, he whispered something in a continuous prayer.
Throughout the room, students grimaced as their food lost all taste and became like ashes in their mouth. No one came to the door, so Helena knocked again.
Damn it, could someone please answer?! A hiss drew her eyes downward, where a stray cat stepped out of the nearby alley and hissed at her. Rome was full of them, considered by many a nuisance.
Helena normally would try to pet them whenever she could, but the way this cat was staring at her sent a shiver up her spine. It looked both fearful and enraged, crouched with its hair on end and a low growl in its throat. Without her hearing, there was the sound of wood creaking above her.
Xavier began to chuckle to himself, his small laughs interrupting the white noise he was seemingly muttering, but not stopping it. Across the cafeteria, random students were standing up, claiming that they were feeling sick and needed to go the infirmary. Finally, the fork he had been spinning around his thumb slipped free of his fingers and fell with a loud clatter. About to knock a third time, Helena was sent tumbling the ground by something heavy slamming down onto the top of her head with tremendous force.
She fell on her back, her vision blurred, her mind spinning, and her skull somehow both numb and racked with pain. As she hit the ground, something else landed on her, something hot and wet, like a giant pot of spaghetti had just been dumped on her. At her feet, the sound of something metal striking the stone ground rang out.
Wincing in pain, Helena slowly sat up, waiting for the throbbing in her head to dull before opening her eyes. At last, she gazed around to see whatever it was that had struck her. The sight that met her pierced her heart like the Lance of Longinus stabbing Christ. The young man from that morning was hanging above her, having jumped from the second story with a noose around his neck and hit her.
It was more than that; there was a massive cut going down his torso with most of innards missing, as if he had undergone an autopsy. The sound of metal on stone she had heard was the knife he used to cut himself open slipping out of his hand when he reached the end of the line. With a waterfall of blood pouring from his open chest, realization struck Helena and she looked down at herself.
The young man's organs had spilled out of him when the rope snapped tight, either ripped free from the inertia or severed when he gutted himself.
Her white blouse was completely red with the boy's blood, sitting in her lap were his stomach and liver, and draped across her head like cobwebs were his intestines.
At that moment, everything became white for Helena, as if she had buried her face in flour. Her mind and all thoughts blurred after that. The only thing she remembered was screaming louder than ever in her life. The police questioned Helena for several hours after that, but it took time for her to even become responsive, having been completely petrified from what happened to her.
Only after she was cleaned off and given a fresh change of clothes did she start talking. The boy who hung himself was not the only casualty. The police found the young man she had kicked propped up in a chair at his stove, having drowned himself in a pot of boiling water. By the time they got there, his face had melted off. As for the boy she had hit with a brick, they were still counting how many times he had stabbed himself, turning his body into a dish sponge and bleeding himself dry.
No foul play was suspected in the deaths; at least no evidence could support it. Everything pointed to suicide, regardless of how outrageous it was. Once they were certain they had gotten everything out of her, they released Helena into the custody of the school. As expected, she didn't attend any classes for the rest of the day, merely going to her room and never leaving her bed.
At least she was protected from Sister Olivia. No one but the staff knew anything about her presence at the scene, and she prayed it would stay that way. "Hey, where were you today? You disappeared before lunch and I never saw you again." Helena's roommate, Sophie, had just stepped through the door. Helena was pretending to be asleep, keeping her back to her friend. Sophie shrugged and began to get ready for bed. "Hmm, must be sick…" Back in the homeroom, Xavier was kneeling with his nose two inches from the wall, enduring his detention.
As Sister Olivia had ordered him, he was wearing short pants. His punishment was to kneel for an hour with frozen peas beneath him, digging into his skin until he bled. It was one of the favorite methods of punishment by nuns. Regardless of the ticks of the clock, he showed no pain, and unbeknownst to Sister Olivia, he felt none.
"So, have you learned your lesson yet? Rule breaking will not be tolerated in this school, especially by me. If you are late, you will suffer." "Suffer?" Xavier turned his head to her, a gleam to his eyes that she had never seen to before. His lips curled back, revealing his bleach-white teeth. "You have no idea what suffering is," he laughed. In the hours that passed, Helena waited for sleep to come, but it never did.
She didn't quite expect it to, of course, after the day she had. She had gone the whole day without eating, but she wasn't sure she would ever have an appetite for the rest of her life. She swore she could still smell it on her hair, the smell of blood and entrails, no matter how hard she had scrubbed in the shower.
At 1:00 am, she finally sat up, unable to stay in that bed any longer. On the other side of the room, Sophie was sleeping peacefully, even snoring. Being as quiet as she could, Helena got dressed and left their room. Students weren't allowed to wander the dorms at night unless they had to go to the bathroom, but at this hour, who was going to stop her? With her eyes long-since adjusted to the dark, she made her way out of the dorms and into the cool night. Crossing the campus and sneaking through two other buildings, she at last reached the place she wanted to go: the university church.
It had been built when the school first came to be, and since then, had gone through renovation after renovation to try and accommodate the always-growing student body. Every Sunday, students had to be organized in shifts with sermons going on late into the night. Reaching the front door, she silently thanked God when she pulled on the handle and felt no restraints.
Trying to keep the hinges from squeaking, she opened it just wide enough to slide in and closed it behind her. The vast church was dead silent and still, barely lit by the moon and stars shining through the glass, though in a way, that made it even more beautiful.
The air rich with the smell of bible pages and incense long-since burned, she wiped some holy water on her forehead from the nearby basin and walked down the long aisle. Coming out past the pews, she knelt before the giant cross on the back wall, the statue of Jesus looking down at her while she clutched her own crucifix. "Lord, please, if you can hear me, I need your help now more than ever.
I… I don't what to do. I thought I had prepared myself for violence in order to join the Swiss Guard, but after today… please… give me strength." "He won't answer you." For the second time, Helena felt a blade pierce her heart, this one colder than the icicles that would hang outside her window in Ireland during the winter. She turned around, seeing Xavier moving down the aisle towards her. "Xavier, what are you doing here?" "Following you.
It seems I went a little too far when I crushed those three insects." His voice was different from before. It was much deeper but very dry and even soft with certain words. It barely sounded human, and there was a force behind it, one that weighed down on Helena in way she had never before experienced.
She wanted to step back but found her feet seemingly glued to the floor. "You? You killed them?! H-how? Why?!" "I told you, didn't I? I wanted to do something to convince Sister Olivia to spare you punishment. I'd say I did better than expected, considering I was alone at detention tonight. Tell me, how does feel to pray for something and be ignored? How does it feel to beg for something from God and have your desperation go unanswered?
I just don't understand why you humans cling to hope when you have no reason to have it in the first place." He reached out and caressed her cheek. "I guarantee you, here in this "house of God", there is no one else here but me. God is not listening to you." Breaking free of the weights holding her to that spot, Helena stepped back and held out her cross. "I don't know what you are, but no enemy of God will speak such blasphemy in front of me and in this holy place! I've accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and I know he will protect me!" "Oh please, look at that foolish token you're holding, at the broken man nailed to that cross.
Does he look like he is in any condition to help you? To protect you from me? You foolish humans think that those crosses will keep you safe, but it's the opposite. What you carry is the symbol of the pathetic and defeated Son of God, dying like an animal in the wilderness with a broken leg. I saw him go up on the cross, I heard his cries of agony, and I saw the spear blade pierce his chest.
You carry with you a reminder of the darkest day of mankind, the day when even the power of God was helpless against human madness. You think that crucifix will protect you, but really…" Xavier reached out and touched the rosary, causing it to melt away and fall to the ground as squirming centipedes.
"It just makes me stronger." "You… you're the Devil, aren't you?" "Bless dear old Dad, but no. I'll give you a hint." Xavier opened his mouth and stuck out his tongue, and even with only the moonlight shining through the church windows, the circle of three sixes was clear as day, like a brand.
"You're the Antichrist…" "In the flesh, and I've decided it's time to make my move. These last two thousand years have been fun, but I'm ready to start thinking about my future. There is a whole wide world just waiting to be conquered." He stepped towards her and Helena yelped as she felt an invisible force grab her wrists and hold them behind her like handcuffs.
She was then spun around and pulled to Xavier, pressed with her back to his chest. He embraced her, running his hands across her supple body. She whimpered as she felt him fondle her breasts with one hand and move south with the other. "Feel free to scream all you want, your voice won't reach anyone.
You know, I lied to you when I said I wanted to become Pope. That's too small, I'm ready to become the king of this world. Of course, I'll need a queen…" He snapped his fingers and Helena gasped as she was suddenly basked in flames, her uniform being burned off her body like flash cotton.
It didn't hurt; it felt more like a hot bath than actual fire. Had she been exposed to those same flames under natural circumstances, she would have suffered severe burns across her entire body.
But while the flames hadn't hurt her, they had touched her, not only destroying her uniform, but also burning away every hair on her body. From the neck down, she was essentially porcelain. Xavier never let go of her, not a single singe being left on his clothes. "And I must say, I've come to taking a liking to you. I find that fire in your eyes rather charming, that fighting spirit.
Not to mention this beautiful body of yours." She shivered in humiliation, now feeling his palms on her bare flesh. He had one hand on her breast, squeezing her tightly but also using his fingers to probe the most sensitive nerve endings. Whether it was his experience with women or his unholy powers, he was intentionally trying to arouse her and expose her to as much focused pleasure as possible. He moved his other hand down her flat belly, admiring her smooth skin.
She clamped her thighs together, but with the slightest touch of his fingers, he wrenched them apart as if there were shackles on her ankles. He traced the entrance to her womanhood with his middle finger, savoring what was to come. "As my queen, you'll live a life of luxury. You'll rule the world at my side, with your every desire being satisfied. You'll eat the finest food, wear the most elegant clothes, and practically bathe in gold in jewels.
At night, I'll make you moan like an opera singer as you have orgasm, after orgasm… after orgasm. All you have to do is swear your loyalty to me." She cried out as he ran his finger between the lips of her pussy, lightly stirring the soft flesh before entering her.
Helena had been taught that self-pleasure was one of the greatest sins. She had never touched herself the way Xavier was touching her now, never probed her insides the way he was. She stood, completely helpless as violated her, working his fingers in and out of her ripe, adolescent flower.
She could feel it, the intrusion of his fingers stimulating her and making her wet. But this wasn't the first time she had felt this, and it was that familiarity that made her sick with dread.
'No! Not again!' "No! I won't do it! I'll never turn my back on God! I'll never join you!" While she tried to sound strong, her voice cracked and she whimpered from the undeniable pleasure being felt from him molesting her. His hand was slick with her wetness and she could feel drops running down her inner thighs.
"Are you sure? This is you last chance; become my queen or suffer the consequences." "I'd rather die than be your queen!" Hearing her resolute voice, Xavier at first sighed in annoyance, but then began to laugh. Helena screamed in agony as she felt something burningly hot sear her skin. He had his tongue pressed to her neck, and after a few moments he pulled away, with the same circle of sixes branded onto her with her flesh smoking.
Glowing red lines stretched from the brand, encircling her before all disappearing into her skin. Xavier released Helena and she fell to her knees, but before she could try to crawl away, he outstretched his hand and closed it.
From his clenched fingers, a coil of light seemingly materialized, stretching down to her with a glowing ring appearing around her neck. The two lights joined and she gasped as she felt Xavier's power weigh down on her.
She wanted to scream, but couldn't, as she felt like she was at the bottom of the ocean, being crushed from every angle with incomprehensible force. She looked up at him, realizing what he had just done. The coil of light was a leash and the ring around her neck was a collar. He had just made her his property.
"You think that by denying me, I'll just let you go? Oh no, things are not that simple. The moment I set my eyes on you, you lost your freedom. You lost the right to run away or to even die. If you will not be my queen, you will be my slave. Every inch of your body now belongs to me. Your entire existence is nothing more than a toy in the palm of my hand. At this very moment, I could rape you with savagery never before seen and there would be nothing you could do to stop me.
But don't worry, I won't take you like that. No, I'll bend you to my will until you beg me to rip away your virginity." He then pulled on her leash, forcing her up onto her knees with her mouth open.
He lifted her chin, moving his thumb across her pursed lips and then pressing down on her tongue. She wanted to pull away, to push him back, but her whole body had gone limp. "This collar will keep you from telling anyone about who I really am.
Even if you try to write it down, that seal will stop you." "I'll never give in to you," she hissed with tears streaming down her face. "Oh, you will. But please continue to resist, that makes it all the more fun for me." Chapter 2 will be up next week!
