Aesos led me up the stairs, all the way. He opened the door to his room and led me inside. Our hands found each other again as he gently pulled me toward the black curtains. He released my hand and opened two of the curtains. He pulled open what I thought was a window, but it was really a door. He then came back to me, reaches for my hand, and when I took it he slowly led me to a balcony. He put a hand over my eyes suddenly.
"I do not want you to see it before you get out here. You need the full effect."
I smiled, amused. I felt him lead me through the door and to a stone railing.
I was aware of his hand gently placed on my back. I could feel a slow breeze blowing on my face. I then sensed his mouth close to my ear.
"Close your eyes. I am going to take my hand off your face."
I closed them.
"I can only see black now."
I could feel him slowly remove his hand from my eyes. I still couldn't see anything, so nothing changed. Other than feeling the wind on my face now. And Aesos' mouth still near my ear.
"Open your eyes now, my love." he said as a whisper.
I opened them.
What I saw amazed me instantly. We were above the clouds. The stars shined so brightly here. The moon shone down on the clouds below, reflecting it's light as to make it as bright as daylight out. The black sky mixed with the white clouds and moon was a gorgeous contrast. The stars were all different colors. Blues and reds. Most were white however. The scenery was gorgeous. But as I turned around and saw the scene reflected in Aesos' eyes, nothing in the world could match it's beauty. Or his.
He stared back at my eyes, seeing the same thing in my eyes that I saw in his. Our hands were still linked and interlocked. He moved closer and I closed my eyes. I felt the pressure of his lips against mine, gently at first. The kiss intensified then, and we moved closer to each other. Our bodies seemed to become one in that moment. Through all that had happened, nothing was as intense as this moment. We could feel each other's emotions while we were this close. He broke off for a second. We stared deeply at each other, tracing each other's facial features.
"I love you, Osimius. More than I ever thought I would love anyone."
A smile burst through my body and radiated from my face. My heart raced at incredible speeds.
"I love you too Aesos. I can not imagine a life without you in it anymore."
Our faces came closer and we kissed again, with more passion. Our arms wrapped around each other. We were both smiling very widely as we kissed, as happy as anyone could ever be. Then the lust began to fill in.
Aesos' hands began moving to the front of my robes. He slowly pulled them open, revealing my bare chest and underclothes. I tugged on his robes, but he was much bigger than me, so I struggled. He laughed.
"Here, let me help you with that." he breathed.
He tore through his robes and his massive chest was there. I put my hands on him, and moved them up to his shoulders. He was so warm. I moved my hands outwards, so that his robes fell from his shoulders. He growled slightly as we kissed. I then noticed that he was not wearing any underclothes. He was standing there naked, and he pushed my robes off of my shoulders. They fell to the balcony and my underclothes seemed to fall with them. We were both naked now, our warm bodies against each other. Then he stopped kissing me and lifted me into his arms. He carried me into the room beyond and closed the curtains behind him.
He laid me on the bed and laid gently on top of me. We began kissing again and I felt his length grow against my leg. Mine did as well. He felt it. He smiled and began kissing a trail down my body. It was a slow, winding trail, but it felt wonderful. Then he put his mouth around my length, I could feel his warm breath, and he began moving up and down. I moaned quietly, to his laughter. He stopped then and came back up to my face. I grabbed the hair on the back of his head and pulled him in and kissed him. He kissed back eagerly. The room became hot suddenly. Sweat began dripping from our faces. We paused to wipe it away. During this pause, Aesos grabbed my legs, spread them apart, and I felt his length enter me. Gently at first, because I screamed in pain, but gradually and slowly it went further in and he moved in and out. Sweat was dripping from him, so I put a hand on his stomach to wipe some of it away. It did nothing.
It seemed like days but was only hours when both of us were completely happy. We cleaned ourselves off and he laid down next to me on the bed. We laid on top of the bedspread, as we were still sweating. I put a hand up to his forehead weakly, exhausted, and attempted to wipe sweat away. He smiled, took my wrist, and kissed my hand.
"You are very strong. You did something very unexpected. You are so beautiful. And now you are exhausted. You must sleep, my love."
The soothing sound of his voice combined with the sound of his beating heart and the way he gently played with my hair made me quite drowsy. But I said something to him, almost on a whisper.
"I love you Aesos. I always will."
I felt him kiss my forehead and then I curled up next to him. His arms wrapped around me, and instantly I was asleep.
I woke up fully rested and comfortable. I sat up slowly and looked around. The light sheer white curtains were blowing in a breeze coming through the door. Daylight surrounded me, and the sun was very bright. I looked next to me in bed, and found that Aesos wasn't there. I got out of bed and went over to the door. I pulled the curtain aside and looked out. He was standing there, naked, looking out at the view. I walked up next to him and he turned to me when he saw me.
"Good morning beautiful. I have been waiting for you. Today, we are going to explore Mount Olympus. It will be wonderful, I promise. This land in the sky is more interesting than, I think, any other land on earth."
I looked out at the view then. The sun was beating down on the clouds, making them sparkle like millions of brilliant diamonds. The reflection was on the walls of the tower, making it too sparkle. It was beautiful. This made me not doubt what he had said. I turned back to him then.
"I have no doubt it will be. Already, seeing this view above the clouds, I can see where the differences lie between Mount Olympus and my earth. Well, what used to be my earth, anyway. I doubt I can go back there now."
My eyes fell to the floor as I thought of my mother, who had died and been taken away by an Angel of Death. I thought also of the land I would no longer be able to farm, the house I would no longer live in. Nothing was the same. I was instantly sad. Aesos noticed and pulled my chin up to meet his face.
"Osimius, just because you are half of an Angel of Death now does not mean that you cannot return to earth, love. You may do as you please. As in the case of your mother, well..... No. That is a story for a different time. You will see her again, believe me."
The thought of that made me smile and I felt suddenly much better. He smiled too and leaned in to kiss me gently. I let him and seconds later he broke off.
"Let us get dressed for the day. Mount Olympus awaits."
He took my hand and led me again to his massive closet, where we began picking clothes for the day.
