Next Time Father...
Josh Anderson

Axey looked into the sky, still wondering why they bothered to enter.
"Well this is the castle up close. Are you still sure that you want to enter Serra?"
He looked at the bolt on the door, not even making eye contact. He hated this place, with every fiber of his heart and soul, he despised it.
"Oh please, how many times must I say it? I want to go in, there’s nothing that could possibly make me want to leave."
Axey raised his arm and struck the door.
Nobody answered.
"They may not even be here." He looked at her with an element of hope.
"Nice try Axey, but you know they are there, just open the door."
"Fine."
As he pulled the large metal bolt from each hinge, the ice that had formed on them sharded off, landing on his boots. These doors had not been opened for so long, no visitors.
He pushed the giant doors aside. As they flew open, a strong aroma of lavender and fire breezed past them.
"No, they haven't." His eyes widened in a strange new form of terror.
"They knew we were coming, I don’t know how but they know."
Serra looking puzzled put her hands delicately on his shoulder,
"And so what if they do know?"
"I don’t want them to; they’ll only destroy our love, as they have everything else I have held dearly inside myself."
He walked almost stealthily down the corridor, as the cold wind blew in from the still open door.

They snuck past the main chamber, where he was sure they would be.
Axey walked to the large stair case at the end of the hall.
"Up here leads to the guest room, my room, the bath room, and the second chamber. The balcony is at the end of the corridor on you far left. So where is it you want to go?"
Serra looked into his eyes now, angrily, with a burning he had never before seen.
"No. Take me to see you parents. Now Axey and stop being so childish."
He walked back down the hall to the main chambers door.
The steel knocker sparking against the metal lining of the door as a result of his pent up rage.
"Is that you Axey?" The voice called from beyond the door.
"Yes mother, it is me."
"Well you and your friend have finally arrived."
The door slowly crept open revealing on of them. His mother.
She whispered into his ear, "Well Axey where is she? Where’s Serra?"
Axey's hand making a waving gesture down the hall to Serra.
She slowly, calmly, walked down the hall, taking his hand, so lovingly, so confidently.
"Mother, this is Serra."
"Hello Madam Sanct."
"A pleasure to meet you at last Serra."
"I have just been cooking a roast, it’s almost done. In the meantime, take a seat; I will be back in a moment."
As his mother returned to the kitchen to tell the chefs how she wanted her meal, Serra sat next to him and whispered in his ear so hopefully,
"See, it’s not so bad, she seems lovely."
He lent away, so spitefully it hurt.
"You of all the people should know that looks are deceiving. Besides, he isn’t home yet."

A roar like thunder bellowed through the doors from the main hallway.
"Who the hell left the doors open?"
Axey smirked so pleased,
"And here he is, right on time. Your fun begins Serra, I warn you now, be prepared."
Large footsteps boomed down the corridor. Slowly getting louder as they came closer to the doors.
"Did you leave the doors open, you fool? For the last god damn time, if you can’t close it, you can sleep outside."
Axey's fists clenched, so tight that his dark nails dug into his flesh, crimson slowly dripping from his hand.
"Serra, perhaps we should leave..."
She looked so frightened, a strange face he had never witnessed before.
Axey took her hand,
"Come, we should go. It will be safer if we just leave."
As they cautiously walked to the door, Dumahrad, his father stared them down.
"Go Serra, go now! I'll be there in a moment."
"You fucking fool. How could you expect anyone to pay you respect, when you act like that. No wonder i've lost all respect for you."
That instant Axey witnessed his dagger-words hitting home, for the first time.
Dumahrad grabbed him by his wings and threw him against the wall,
His chain that Serra gave to him broke and landed on the floor.
"Get off me you god forsaken imp. Get the hell off!"
His fathers eyes Burned with blind, raw, rage. What Axey couldn't understand is how his father actually cared. He never had cared about Axey or his respect before.
"Why boy, what are you going to do?"
His hand gripping Axey’s now exposed neck, clenching till he couldn't breathe.
Axey, now so angry, grabbed Dumahrad's plate mail,
"Get the hell off me now, or I will have you arrested, and don’t think I wont!"
His fathers grip loosened. Dumahrad slowly stepping away, still blind with rage.
He turned to face Axey,
"Next time, I’ll kill you; I’ll put you straight through that window."
Axey drew his knives, pointing at Dumahrad, and carving into his wrist plates.
"You don't have the guts to kill your own son you fool. Me on the other hand."

Axey sheathed the Blades, and picked up his necklace, repairing it as he cautiously walked out to find Serra.
But she was nowhere to be found.
He had lost her, and paid so dearly.
From that day, he readied for his fathers next attempt, as this time, Dumahrad wouldn’t be walking away, he would be dead.

Axey clipped his Chain back around his neck, kissing Serra's feather. He flexed his wings and flew through the still opened door to find her.
