Tittle: Phoenix's soul Volume 1: Pharaoh's heart Chapter 3 (3/3)
(Chapter 3: heated kiss part 3/3)
The king left to prepare on how to work on the idea his advisor gave, on how he will make it special for Ai-ka, on how he will work on his ‘sorry’ he thought of more until he remembered the girl likes magic, ‘what if I put some magic with it’ he thought ‘ok that’s it, I will need some assistance to make this idea work, I need to find Aneb and Ata’
The king found the two and explained everything the two likes the idea, and decides to help; he was making the preparation while the two looked for the king’s trusted persons to be on his chamber in an hour
Meanwhile on the king’s room Ai-ka was trying to finish her weave clothe like mantle, she was certain to finish it before the day ends so she can give it to the person she wants to give it to…
“I am not sure he’s going to like this, but I hope and I hope he’s not mad at me anymore, I mean it was an accident and when I shouted at him it was just I was furious, nothing more, Argh… why do I worry too much if he’s mad at me, yes he’s the king but why do I have this—feeling I can’t understand, does it mean I’m falling for him? No-no-no, even if you are, the king will never love you back, you’re just a lowly toy for him Ai-ka” she said to herself with a bit of sadness and hurt, it was almost a week that king talked to her and with that accident yesterday she wasn’t sure if the king will talk to her ever again, she thought of an apology to the king but she was scared if she can work it the right way and she decided if the king wants her job to be done, she would and do everything she can to make the king satisfied, to make the king happy, ‘to feel his warmth again, his scent, wwait… ai-ka stop thinking liking, which of you understand that you are innocent, so stop thinking you perverted mind of mine’ she was caught of her thoughts on how to make the pharaoh happy, on how to make her job done well then there were knocks on the door
“Yes come in”
The door opened and there were two men who came in first after that next was one woman and one weird wearing man and a soldier and lastly she saw Hepa, she was confused why lots of people gathered on the king’s room, she was worried that maybe the king was in danger or something, she asked the familiar person
“Hepa, why do all of you came, I mean why do all of you gathered here?”
“Well my lady, the king ordered us to be here”
“For what reason?”
“For some important thing, my dear” the other woman answered
But Ai-ka just stared at the woman and the people inside the room, she was not really comfortable with lots of people specially she haven’t met or have known them and when the people around her felt it that way, they decided to introduce themselves to the girl
“I am Ania, the royal healer of the palace; I am the one who mended your injuries and wounds”
“I am grateful of what you’ve done royal lady Ania”
“Just call me Ania”
“I am Thoth the royal teacher of the palace, husband of Ania, I am the teacher of our king, and I know you have met my son Aneb”
“wow you both two were Aneb’s parents, you both look young, well nice to meet you lord Thoth’
“Just call me Thoth, I am just a simple person, and thank you for your eulogize”
“I am Asar, the king’s royal palace guard, the most trusted protector of our king”
“Nice to meet you Asar”
“We are Uab and Atef, I am the king’s right hand vizier and he is our king’s uncle and his high councilor” the old vizier tried to persuade the high councilor but the councilor was just too proud of himself
“A slave won’t need to know my name, nor I have to introduce myself to a servant, like her, I am not just an ordinary councilor but I am royal blood member” the high council spoke to loud and contaminant that the girl flinched on those words, she finds the man too proud and highly than the pharaoh itself, but when the old advisor was about to apologize the odious words when Ata and Aneb came in
“Well, I think we’re all here, come sit here Ai-ka” dragging Ai-ka to the chair they moved in the center of the room and let Ai-ka sit, Ai-ka was confused, so confused what was going on, when the door opened, and slowly the king came in, visible nervous and he was wearing his warrior outfit, wearing large golden plate on his neck that falls unto his chest and there were golden straps that x cross his strong abdomen, wearing arm bands and golden wing band along his usual jewelries and his crown, he was wearing a Khepresh crown a leather stained blue and was covered with small yellow sun discs with a Uraeus in front, crown as a sign of power and royalty in the battle, not only that he has a sword on his hips,
Ai-ka’s jaw fell and almost made her mouth dry for too long opened, she gulped when the king went near her, she wasn’t sure what was going on, so she stare at the king with admiration and fearful at the same time, she was scared, maybe the king will kill her with his own hands that’s why lots of people came, maybe he was sick of playing games and he was about to throw away his ‘new toy’ her thoughts was wondering what will happen the closer the king gets the more tensed she was,
but again her jaws fell when the king slowly fell unto his knees to bow down like a warrior does, one foot bend and the other knee on the floor, and his other arm on the other knee and the other hand slowly came into the ground and as it touches the ground, it seemed like evening came, the whole country was slowly darkening and cover with darkness, until it was too dark to see, and then there were fire balls floating all around and with the help of Aneb, the fireballs transformed into flower lilies falling into the ground repeatedly, continuously and then the king spoke
“Little one, I am here to apologize for what I’ve done” he bowed down for more, slowly he put his two knees on the ground and his head touched the ground as like all servant do, dumb struck Ai-ka can’t say or react but to stare at the king’s actions, but the people inside the room gasped except for the three person who already knew about the plan, as the magician was amused by the kings courage of doing this to the girl he loves, he helps his son’s doings, he made the lilies glow like fireflies in the night and if it touches the ground it vanished like fireworks and not only that his wife too used her magic to create warm yet cold breeze to make the scene more romantic,
“Little one, I came here as a king in battle, a king in his strongest manner, but to bow down to you as your servant, a symbol of defeat of your grace and beauty, even in my strongest mode I was weakened by your gorgeousness but strengthened my heart by your charm” he paused and started to cry, “please accept my regrets, and forgive my hurtful actions and ailing words towards you, for I, can’t live any longer as this guilt of mine kept taunting me even in my dreams” Ai-ka, came into her senses and felt pity to the crying pharaoh, she wasn’t mad at him anymore in fact she was the who was planning to ask forgiveness to the king but instead the king was kneeling, bowing, and crying for her forgiveness, a thing a king would never do, even on his death but look, he was pitiful crying like a servant begging for mercy, she couldn’t express her feeling she doesn’t know if she was happy or something but instead she took her weave clothe that for the second the king thought that he wasn’t forgiven, but when Ai-ka came back near him and kneeled beside him and smiling as she said
“my king, I am not worthy for your action, but I am beyond honored for what you did for me, but to tell you the truth I wasn’t mad at you, I was waiting for you to speak with me and I thought you were still mad at me so I made this, this is not the same as the fine clothes you always wear but I weaved it with care, for I plan to give you this to ask you for forgiveness but instead it was you who came first, here take this, hope you will like this, stand up my king it’s not good to distinguish a king bend over to his servant”
The king was too happy as he took the girl’s hands, then he remember Hepa words about he can see her smile if it works and indeed the girl was smiling deeply as they both look in each other’s see
While they were staring at each other for so long, Ata gesture the others to leave the two alone and started to go but they were happy that things turned out good

When everyone had left them behind and the magic vanished as the king couldn’t concentrate anymore because he was staring at the girl lovingly and warm
The king started to touch the girl’s face but this time it doesn’t shiver at his touch, he framed the face with his touch and also framed the girl’s lips as they walk towards the bed; he started to beg for something
“I beg you, don't turn me away. Let me touch you” voice sounded strained. His expression was filled with too many emotions for the girl to sort them all out. "Don't push me away."
Ai-ka wanted to do was to hold him closer. Her heart raced at the thought of the night she holds him tightly and maybe she wants that, too. She wants him to touch her
He cupped the girls face and other arm wrapped around the waist of the girl tauntingly but gentle,
"If you don't want me, tell me now and I will never touch you again unless commanded. But-"
The girl closed her eyes as the pharaoh’s fingertips gently traced the contours of her face. As his voice dropped into a husky whisper "-I beg you, don't turn me away. Let me touch you, Ai-ka. Let me kiss you."
As his voice trailed away, his nose brushed into the girl’s. And with that simple contact ignited every nerve-ending in on both bodies. She clung to Alim’s shoulders, suddenly determined not to let him go.
Oh, is this what she wanted, did she want Alim. This much but, did she dare to give in to her feelings? Could she give in to the demands of her vulnerable heart and still protect it?
"Please." He breathes the word. His hands roamed to her hair, as he pressed tantalizing kiss on her nose
"Let me have this moment. Please. Let me have you..."
“Yes” was all her answer, she opened her eyes in time to see what looks like joy lighted up the king's eyes. That it sent an electric jolt all the way to her toes. She threaded her fingers through Alim's hair and tugged him down into a desperate kiss
He moaned, having, wanting this for so long now. Liking the feeling of the lips, he want this, he wants her to kiss him back, Oh Ra this is his happiest moment of his life
They fell into the bed, where at first it was a chaste kiss but later he devoured the girl’s lips, nibbling and biting the lower lip and sucking the upper as their hands meet on the side, fingers intertwine
Ai-ka moaned as well as she felt the warmth and the scent she missed so much, she arched as Alim’s tongue licking her lower lip pleading for entry and her mouth opened in shock and felt the tongue sliding down and began exploring,
She decided to get in on the game and began wrapping her tongue around pharaoh’s tongue, earning him a deep moan. As she can feel the hardening of the king’s arousal brushes into her thighs
As the air became their problem they pulled back, the king watches the girl with full of love, desire, lust and wants as he saw that girl watches him too with desire and lust and maybe love and want, so he began to kiss her lips again and traces to her jaw line, nibbling, biting, making hickeys trail as he moves to her throat
“A—lim” she moaned
“yes, yes Ai-ka, call my name”
He wanted this moment he was always dreaming of this day to come that the girl he wants will be moaning screaming his name in want
He meander his finger around the woman’s leg “can I?”
"Y… you're the Pharaoh, you can do whatever you want." The words left her mouth before she could stop them and she instantly regretted it.
Alim's eyes flickered with sadness and hurt. He pushed himself onto his knees and sat down.
"What?" Alim snapped. The girl flinched at the tone
"I don't want it to be like this." he turned away from the girl
"If you speak like that, it feels bad to me, like I'm obliging you to do this."
"I'm sorry,” standing on her knees and hugging Alim from behind. "I said that without thinking. It's not like that at all."
"I want you to be with me by your free choice, not because you are obliged to by rule. You deserve a chance to make your own choice." He took Ai-ka's hand and knelt down, kissing the top softly.
“I chose to do this; with you Alim”
Alim smiled and bent down, pulling the girl into another kiss, licking her lower lip again asking for entry. And Ai-ka happily complied.
Carefully, not to disturb Alim, she removed the king’s jewelries and his crown.
Leaving Ai-ka's lips, Alim let his lips and tongue trace the girl's jaw line and neck, gently sliding her tunic over and down her shoulders.
Ai-ka didn't notice – obviously she was feeling too good to care – but when one of Alim's venturing hands ran over her back, she panicked. No her birthmark. ‘No! The king well know about my mark and he will’ "Please, no! Don't touch me there!" he yelped.
Alim stopped, fearing that he may have hurt the girl in some way.
"Are you scared that if I saw your birthmark I wouldn't like you anymore? Or kill you, there’s no need for you to hide that, I promised to protect you and I mean it."
He turned the girl to her back and look into its birthmark, sitting her on his lap, Ai-ka chose to do want the king want and politely turn her back, nervously and ignores the thing poking her legs(keyk704:*grins* what kind of thing)
The king holds the girl close to him with one hand on her chest and he ran his tongue over the birthmark. Ai-ka gasped and moaned, arching her back and calling the king by his name, totally forgetting the title.
"You called my name again… Please let me hear it again and again."
He kissed Ai-ka's neck as the girl moved his head back to give him more room.
"Alim…"she said a bit quieter than intended, but enough for his Pharaoh to hear.
Gently and carefully, not to scare the girl in any way, Alim moved his hand down a bit more where the revered part of the girl was placed
Ai-ka tensed, as she felt the brushing of his fingertips on her sacred part “Are you afraid?" he heard Alim ask. The girl’s mind was blurred with many thoughts ‘this is your job, with him so don’t be afraid Ai-ka it’s just Alim, his not like your master before he’s so gentle and he has a good scent, he’s warm and handsome and I know you like this too, so please want this, don’t be afraid,’
The king again smiled as he read the thoughts of ai-ka
“So you like”
“I mean my scent, I must use that scent often”
“Yes--yes, it suits you well”
The king felt that she’s tensed more so he said
"Don’t worry, its okay"
He turned Ai-ka’s back again,
Alim’s hands still roams on the valued part but decided to do more move so he carefully unknot the loincloth that was used as underwear and was about to do something more
"You have to relax," he said softly, but when suddenly
###########################lime stops here#############################
Just then, the door of the room swung open, Ata came in
“My king, I for—for-got” Ata blushed crimson red as he saw the sight,
And Ai-ka panicky pulls the sheets to cover her exposed body while the king tried to hide her from the sight of his cousin
“Ata, can’t you I see I’m doing something important and if you come here, with my work that’s not so important to now, I’ll attend to that tomorrow, now unless the sky is falling, don't interrupt me again. Now go, before kemet losses their prince”
“ye—yes, see you tomorrow, have a great night cousin” said with a playful smirk before he rushed to the door and when he reach outside ‘well I’ve never thought of them to do that fast, I’m sorry cousin, hope you’ll still continue your great night’
Inside the room was furious alim thinking
‘Oh, Ra please remind me to kill my cousin tomorrow’
And then he looked into the girl, who was now shocked and blushing not only on her face but it seemed her whole body was red as a tomato,
“Well, I think that’s it for now”
When Ai-ka hears what the king said, she felt something, she felt maybe the king was not satisfied with her, maybe he was mad because she can’t fulfill the king’s desire, she doesn’t do her job well, lot of thoughts came so she spoke
“Why my king, did I do something wrong, didn’t I do my job well?”
“No Ai-ka, little one I love it, it’s just, this is wrong, I know I want this but as I’ve said I would never force you into anything like this because of the rules.
The king explained but it seemed Ai-ka misinterpreted the whole thing she suddenly began to cry because she thought that she’s miserable, she can’t even do her job, even she was willing to do it or maybe she really wants to do it with Alim, maybe she was too ready to give her body to the king, but now, why did the king stop, why? She felt so sad and hurt
But when Alim feels these things
“Thank you little one, but now you’re still not ready for this, and I am willing to wait,” he kissed the girl’s forehead as he saw the girl smile on his action
“Well, how--about my job? Aren’t you mad at or”
“Well you do well, the kiss is more than enough for me now” he stands and he walked towards the table “I will wait until you feel the same as I feel for you” he poured wine into two glasses “here drink”
“But I don’t drink”
“Just this, for me”
“Ok” the girl stands and took the glass, the king guided the girl into the balcony to watch the sky that was filled with stars, smilingly contented of the memory of the thing they have just done a minute
“Ai-ka” he pushes Ai-ka until the girl stumbled and he was hit by a poisoned needle…
“Alim, alim no—no” started she ran toward the door and called and screamed for help
“Guards! Ania! Ata! The pharaoh. Please come”
And then the guards came and saw the pharaoh, she explained and the guards proceeded on searching, she was crying when all the council and prince came, Ania, immediately checked on the pharaoh while Aneb and Ata took care of the crying Ai-ka, they wanted Ai-ka to leave the room so she can calm herself when suddenly she felt the stinging pain on her birthmark and she can feel dizziness and hard to breath, she can feel pain on the part where the same part the king was hit,
“Ai-ka!Ai-ka are you alright?” but no answer was heard as the girl fainted,
“Mother, ai-ka, she’s fainted, look her birthmarks glowing” the healer went to check what her son said, and she gasped when she saw and said
“what about my cousin Ania!”
“If we don’t hurry the king will die” she said looking on how the birthmark of the girl glowed and how the girl seemed visible to suffer on pain even she fainted
“No my cousin will live, he won’t die!!!”
Anne: wow… that’s
ATA : no.. No… my cousin’s going to live right!”
Ai-ka: please tell me, Alim’s going to live right
ANNE: well we will know that on the next chapter
Aneb: ok, I’ll do the closing as everyone was still shock, (clear throat, stand strait he reads the script) next time on the next chappie “intertwined fates” will Alim’s going to die? Who? Hit’s the king? And why it manage to enter the palace with lot of guards, and why Ai-ka feels the same pain Alim’s felt, and that we will know soon on the next chapter of phoenix’s soul
To be continued on the next chapter: “intertwined fates”
