Play Ball: Oops. Luc should not have done that #Excerpt from A Stolen Heart #SciFi #MFRWhooks

 

In this scene, Luc has been dealing with business issues and is finally free. He's leaving soon, and hopes to spend a few minutes with Senthys. He doesn't expect to find him in the yard alone with a ball. Why wouldn't the others play ball with him?

Play Ball

Set up: A Deshai is a student in the Thieves' Guild. Luc has trained five and the youngest, Nikko, is about to graduate from the Academy and leave home. Nikko is away taking finals as the scene opens.

Play Ball

Eager to see Senthys, Luc hurried upstairs, but the practice room was empty. A faint sound drew Luc to a tall pair of windows overlooking the back.

Like other houses in the neighborhood, a wooded and fenced yard allowed room for sports and exercise. The house had its own gym but no pool. The boys swam in the jointly-shared neighborhood pool a block over, or at the Academy.

In a sunny area, four of the guys had formed two teams and were hitting a ball over a high net. The Thieves' Guild considered hand-contact sports good for developing muscle, but also dangerous. To avoid injury, while the ball was physically soft, the Tyran technology inside made it react as if it were harder. It turned blue when a point was scored and red when lost. Yellow indicated out of bounds.

Nikko was not down there, which meant he must be taking finals. So where was Senthys?

Luc changed to the other window.

A rigid pole with a lead clipped to its top had a ball attached at the end. When activated, the ball could be hit by one player, and it would react as if being struck back by another. Two could play against one another, or vie with the tech, trying to score more hits. Depending on the setting, it could dodge above their heads or swoop lower.

Though too short to hit the ball properly, Senthys could reach it, and he hit it hard enough for it to wrap around the pole and come back. More of a push, but it spun around the pole, far too high for him to touch. He jumped toward the moving ball.

Why weren't the others involving him? If they wouldn't, he would. Luc threaded his way down the stairs, out through the kitchen and into the backyard.

As Luc arrived, Nikko opened a gate in the fence and walked through, drawing everyone's attention. When he pumped both fists in the air, Luc and the others cheered.

Senthys did too. The ball came back around, struck him in the forehead and laid him out flat on his back.

Luc raced to the boy and knelt.

The child blinked, a bright spot in the middle of his forehead.

"Are you hurt?" Afraid to move him, Luc touched the boy's foot.

Senthys looked up at all the Deshai, who had gathered around him, then at Luc. He grinned. "Do it again!"

A collective groan of relief from the Deshai mixed with their pained laughter.

Luc sank to the ground.

"Did you see Luc run?" Andel asked.

Brinn laughed. "Yeah, you don't ever want to make him come after you!"

In his haste to reach Senthys, he'd set aside thousands of years of training and reflex and used his powers without a single thought.

The Deshai went back to their game, and Luc held out his hands to the boy. When Senthys came to him, Luc pulled the boy close and hugged him like he would never let go.

Luc explains the arcane rules of theft to a 3 yr old #Excerpt from A Stolen Heart #SciFi #MFRWhooks

Luc explains the arcane rules of theft to a 3 yr old #Excerpt from A Stolen Heart #SciFi #MFRWhooks

 

The word arcane conjures up magic and sorcery, but its definition is "requiring secret or mysterious knowledge." To Luc, who's an Arcane Master in the Thieves' Guild, those secrets are the lifeblood of the skill. Here, he explains one of the basic rules to Senthys, who is three.

Arcane Secrets

In this scene, Luc and Senthys are riding in Luc's hoversine, a limousine that flies right above the ground.
(banner image - Luc's hoversine, art by Nano-Core. I commissioned a vehicle immediately recognizable as a limo, but futuristic.)

Senthys swung his feet, which, on the short rise of the hoversine's safety seat, meant he kicked the main seat with his heels.

That was already old and it had just started. Luc leaned down close to distract him. "Let's learn some thief rules."

"Why?" Senthys tilted his head. "Don't you already know them?"

Luc stopped himself from reacting. After all, he was talking to a child, not that different from talking to Pietas. "Yes, I do, and I'm going to teach them to you. I told you there would be two rules inside the store and if you obeyed them, you could pick out a toy."

"Oh. I 'member." Like Luc, Senthys folded his hands before him. "Ready."

"You are to stay next to me at all times. You may hold my hand if you like, but do not leave me to look at things, or to see things unless I give you permission. Is that clear?"

"Yes, sir."

"Say it back to me."

"Um..." The boy fidgeted. "All of it?"

Luc decided against counting--to any number. "Tell me what you understood."

"Stay with you."

"Good! That's perfect."

The child bounced in his seat.

How delighted this boy was to do well. Luc must encourage that. "The other rule is not to steal anything in this store. Say it back to me."

"Don't steal in the store?"

"That's right!" Luc patted his hands together. "What a good job."

Senthys clapped, grinning.

"I'm going to tell you something and I want you to always remember it. Honorable thieves do not steal unless under contract. If an honorable thief cannot afford something, then he must work a regular job to earn the money." Luc placed a hand on the boy's arm. "My Deshai are honorable. They do not take things without a contract. Understand?"

"Yes, sir. Can I have a contract?"

"You can have one when you reach level thirteen. At that level, you can be hired professionally."

"Are you level thirteen?"

Luc brushed at his sleeve. "I'm level forty-eight."

"Oh." The boy nodded as if impressed. "Is that better than thirteen?"

Amusing, however deflating that might be. "Quite a bit better," Luc told him. "It's the highest in the Guild. Arcane Master."

Senthys cocked his head. "Then that's what I want to be. A Arcane Mister."

"Master," Luc corrected, smiling. "Arcane Master."

"Arcane Master. I want to be that. Brinn says I can be anything."

True words. Luc held up a hand, reached across the seat, and Senthys high-fived him. "Your brother is absolutely right."

Invading the shower #Excerpt from A Stolen Heart #SciFi #MFRWhooks

Invading the shower #Excerpt from A Stolen Heart #SciFi #MFRWhooks

 

The shower - great place to unwind. And the last place you'd expect an invader.

Invading the Shower

Set up: Luc has had an incredibly long day full of drama and hasn't slept for three long days. He's about to unwind with a glass of wine and a shower.

Inside his room, Luc shut the door, activated locks and set full privacy settings. It took three seconds to choose a bottle of Skovron Blush '37. Light, delicate and sweet. He opened the bottle to let the wine breathe while he set about stripping. Everything but the shoes went into the recycler, although he considered ditching those too. If his house-droids couldn't whisk them clean, he'd let them get rid of the shoes. Not his problem.

Luc chose a wineglass, poured, then carried it into the bathing area. After a sip, he set the glass on a marble countertop and slid open the smoky-gray glass door of the shower.

Pietas stepped into view, fully clothed. "I do not need a shower, thank you."

Luc snatched a towel and whipped it around himself. "My lord--" An explosive sigh burst from him. "What are you doing in my shower?"

"I wanted to see you."

"In the shower?"

With a flirty smile, Pietas leaned one shoulder against the wall. "You must admit, it is a good place to see you."

A headache shoved its way forward. "Not happening, Pietas."

"Spoilsport."

"Again, what are you doing here?"

"I portaled into your room and heard the door open, so I came in here, and--" He lifted his chin. "I am your king. I go where I please."

"I asked you not to portal here, my lord. My Deshai are home."

"Which is why--" With a groan, Pietas clenched his fists. "Only you would expect me to explain myself." He gestured toward Luc. "You explain. Where have you been? Are you showering because you're going out, or..." He trailed a look down Luc's length. "...going to bed?" He ended the question with a smile.

"Bed. Alone. I've dealt with drama for days." Luc picked up the wine and drank it in one gulp. "I need a refill." Without waiting for a response, he marched himself back to his room, retrieved the bottle and poured, then splashed wine into a second glass.

Drinking alcohol had no effect on Sempervians, but the act itself soothed. It offered tradition. Comfort. And when needed, a means of stalling while you decided how much truth you could afford to tell.

He offered the second glass.

His king lifted it, sniffed, sipped. "This is good. From one of your wineries?"

"Yes. One of the Skovron locations." Luc swirled his wine, waiting until Pietas took another sip. "It's your sister's favorite."

Mouth twisting, Pietas set down his glass with a click.

When a mean bully attacks, Luc jumps into action #Excerpt from A Stolen Heart #SciFi #MFRWhooks

When a mean bully attacks, Luc jumps into action #Excerpt from A Stolen Heart #SciFi #MFRWhooks

 

Luc looks human, but he's not. He's a twelve thousand year-old immortal who's accustomed to hiding what he is, what he does, and what he feels. So when the three year-old in his charge is upset by a mean bully, Luc must counsel what to do.

Mean Bully

Set up: A Deshai is a student in the Thieves' Guild. A teacher is a Sen'dai.  In the Tarthian Empire, training often begins at age three.

Scene set up: Luc has taken Senthys shopping in an exclusive store. A human client inside with her young child takes offense at the presence of a "dirty halfbreed" like Senthys. When the woman demands that management throw Luc and Senthys out, she gets what's coming to her and is herself asked to leave. As this opens, she has picked up her child, who'd been standing next to Senthys, and gone out the door in a huff.

 

"I'm so sorry, Mr. Saint-Cyr." The manager touched his arm.

"Thank you, but I'm more concerned about my Deshai. Excuse me." He turned toward Senthys and held out his arms.

The boy ran to him.

Luc scooped Senthys up. "Did she hurt you?"

The boy's eyes glittered with tears. One slipped down his cheek. "I took a bath."

"Oh, Senthys." Luc hugged him close. "That woman was mean. You are not dirty. Not one bit." He cupped his hand around the child's head, lacing his fingers through the long curls. "I'm sorry she hurt your feelings."

With his head on Luc's shoulder, Senthys sniffled. "It's okay."

"No, it's not. It's never okay to be mean." He traced small circles on the boy's back. "Can you look at me?"

Senthys lifted his head.

"It's okay to admit when you're hurt or feel bad." He wiped the boy's tears. "You don't have to pretend you're okay."

"I don't?" Senthys played with Luc's tie.

The manager and assistant both hovered nearby, adjusting stacks of clothing yet he felt their surreptitious attention as if it were touches. This had turned into a far more public outing than he'd anticipated. Nothing to do but wade in and clean up the mess.

"It's okay to be sad. Everyone is sad sometimes. You don't have to hide pain." Here he was saying the words, when he couldn't do the same thing with Pietas.

"Wili says only babies care about feelings."

"Does he?" Luc adjusted Senthys in his arms, and tugged down the hem of the boy's shirt. "Wili is wrong. It's okay to cry. It's also okay to tell people when they hurt your feelings. Remember how you told your brother he hurt my feelings?"

"Yes, sir."

"If an adult is mean to you, you can come to me and I will defend you. I will try to keep mean people away from you, but if they say anything to you, it's okay to tell me. It's okay to be scared and it's okay to be mad. What is it that we don't do?"

"We don't hit or claw."

"That's right! Good job, Senthys." He hugged him. "You played nicely. Nothing you did was wrong. None of her yelling was for anything you did. You were a good boy."

"I was?" The boy looked so pleased with himself that Luc couldn't help but laugh.

"Yes, you were." He gave him a small squeeze. "Would you like to help me shop now? And then we'll get ice cream."

Senthys wiggled, trying to get down, so Luc put him back on the floor. The boy took his hand and looked up at the manager. "Ma'am, I would like some new clothes, please."

Luc could have burst, he was so proud.

The woman bent toward him. "I'd be happy to help you."

"Thank you." Senthys turned his blue-eyed gaze up at her, offering a blazing smile. "You're pretty," he declared, with a boy's innocent charm.

She blushed. "Why, thank you."

"You make my Sen'dai happy. He likes you." He tugged Luc's hand. "Right?"

"Senthys!"

"What?" He blinked up at Luc, the image of a perfect angel.

"Kids." Standing, the woman looked up at Luc through her lashes. "What can you do?" With a flirtatious smile, she beckoned to them.

Who knew having a child offered such a distinct advantage with women? With a new appreciation for his young Deshai, Luc followed.

Meet Pietas: Bad Boy King of Immortals #scifi #ASMSG

Meet Pietas? Is it safe?

Bringer of Chaos, the Origin of PietasMeet Pietas ap Lorectic, the Bad Boy King of the immortal Sempervians. He’s a shapeshifter, warrior, thief, gamemaster, king, and is often referred to by his friends as Bringer. It’s short for Bringer of Chaos, one of his favored titles.

His twin is Dessy, known in the Tarthian Empire as Empress Rheyn Destoiya. His parents were Mahikos and Helia ap Lorectic, the last genetically created “Ultra Beings” (aka Ultras) created by humans. They were also the only Ultras conceived by natural means. While in the womb, the twins were enhanced to protect them, because the tide was turning against Ultras, and it was feared the children would be killed. Pietas and Dessy were born on 2/26/2620, and were immediately subjected to extensive and continued genetic enhancements by their father. Pietas and Dessy became both the most advanced creatures ever born, and as history later proved, the most dangerous.

I’m a movie lover and like millions — I loved the Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies. I’m a major #Thranduil groupie. Lee Pace could be a perfect Pietas. Tall, lanky, white-haired, with piercing turquoise eyes, and a disdain of humans. The aloof “why have you disturbed me” look that Pace perfected for Thranduil is Pietas in spades. Luke Goss (Hellboy 2’s Prince Nuada) could also make an amazing Pietas. Because Pietas looks so much like his father, Goss could play Mahikos and do an incredible job. He excels at playing heroes with flaws who are both noble and decadent. See the film Bone Dry and you will understand.

My first book with Pietas came out in 2004. He’s been a regular character ever since. I wish you could see him sulking in the corner, saying “About time, human!” Believe me, I’m writing as fast as I can.

My beta reader Jean says “I love the bad guys; all except for the Empress (I keep begging Kayelle to let her have it). Luc scared me when he first came on the scene, but as I got to know him, he’s very deep and holding a lot of secrets that are so out of character with how he portrays himself. He has a lot of compassion that he doesn’t want known. I also have this hidden obsession with Pietas, the ultimate villain’s villain. You have to really dig to find something good about him. I find these two extremely compelling and I want to get into their heads.”

Thranduil - meet Pietas

The aloof King Thranduil – so like Pietas

My author friend Houston Havens loves him too. We’ve had long discussions about him, and it was she who pointed out that he’s not a sociopath. I had written him as one, but his true self is highly emotional. He masquerades as someone without emotion and without remorse, but deep down — he feels. And he feels with a depth that stunned me once I saw it. Yes, my characters can totally surprise me.

I shouldn’t be amazed at how much of a following Pietas has garnered. He is the uber villain, after all. He does have a soft side, even if we rarely get to see it. There are levels to him that readers saw long before I did. How ironic is that? Will Pietas ever get his happy ever after? That depends on whether he opens up and lets me see how to give him the love of his immortal life. I hope he does. I’m holding out for it.

Giveaway

I’ve attached a long chapter that features Pietas from the book Alitus. It will give you a good look at the character, and show both his softer side, and his I-want-to-throttle-him personality. Meet Pietas in a downloadable chapter from Alitus, Tales of the Chosen. Pietas has his own book, Bringer of Chaos: the Origin of Pietas He was and is fascinating to write.

Okay, fangirl. How did the cosplay go? Well, @Nitsvetov was perfect. Me? Hmm #Cosplay #SciFi

Okay, fangirl. How did the cosplay go? Well, @Nitsvetov was perfect. Me? Hmm #Cosplay #SciFi

Watching a Perfect Cosplay on Instagram

Nik Nitsvetov is an award-winning cosplayer and a photographer. He portrayed the immortal king, Pietas, from my Bringer of Chaos series on September 1, 2018 in a live cosplay. I've had this character in my head since I started writing. It was fascinating to see him brought to absolute, perfect life.

Left and below: raw images of Nik as Pietas

Was it perfect?

On September 1, the Russian cosplayer, Nik Nitsvetov portrayed immortal king Pietas during a live feed on Instagram. I watched with my friend and colleague, Lisa Lowe (who was on with me via Skype). We each used Mobizen (an Android app) to record the cosplay.

Unfortunately, my WiFi cut in and out, and the image kept freezing. Lisa gave me a move-by-move account of what was transpiring. Good thing I was able to grab my gear and head out the door quickly. Lisa lives only 10 minutes away. I kept my phone on while driving so I could hear what was happening, and because I moved from WiFi to 4G, the signal started coming in quite clear. Before I'd left my subdivision, Nik started performing the ritual. I had my phone in a handsfree device but because the VERY last thing I wanted was a ticket, I was not watching and driving. Although I could glance at it (and did), when I saw him begin, I pulled off the road and watched.

Okay, fangirl. How did the cosplay go? Well, @Nitsvetov was perfect. Me? Hmm #Cosplay #SciFiThe moment Nik began moving into another part, setting up poses, I drove again. During that 10 minute drive, I pulled over no less than 3 times. Stopped way too long at a stop sign, and dared (probably) too many glances. When I arrived at Lisa's, we sat side by side and watched, commenting and exclaiming over the various poses and images.

Later, when we played back the recording, we were stunned to discover it had also recorded us. We had some good laughs listening. Most of the time, we were each speechless -- or reduced to phrases like Oh my god! Holy cow! Did you see that? ohmigod ohmigod ohmigod! (and to change it up - oh wow!). If I strung together everything we said, it would sound like a contest at a fangirl convention seeing who could sound the most amazed in less than three words.

Near the end, we discovered we could actually write something and Nik would see it or hear it from a friend who was recording. I sounded like a broken record here too: You are perfect. Perfect Pietas! That's so perfect! But at one point, I noticed a "hello" button and pressed it. A moment later, Nik smiled and said, "Hello, Kayelle." My super intelligent response? "Oh my god!" LOL

We didn't realize that he had a cold until about halfway through the cosplay. He coughed and Lisa worried aloud that he was sick. Of course, our immediate mother-hen selves lurched forward, ready to hand him a tissue or a cough drop or give him a hug. Too bad he was in St Petersburg and Lisa and I were in Atlanta. Nik kept going, kneeling on the floor for part of the ritual, bare-chested, water in his cupped hands dribbling down his arms as part of the scene. But now, we were both fascinated and worried -- what if the room was too cold? Would he get sicker? We hoped that cough was not serious but we also wanted him to keep going. Talk about mixed emotions.

The event lasted one hour, two hours short of anticipated -- but that was Instagram's doing -- not Nik's. He kept going after the live video ended and let us know only afterward that he had stopped a little short due to being sick. Pardon my overuse of this word where Nik is concerned, but he was perfect. Absolutely perfect.

I imagine if Nik reads this, he'll shake his head and then laugh at his crazy American fans.

Were the time, planning, detailing and work worth it? Absolutely. I would not change a thing -- except -- to hesitate less and trust myself more. Nik is kind and thoughtful and eager to reach out to his fans. He is professional in his work and a perfectionist who makes sure every part of an image is right. His photographer, Julia, is just like him. Watching her pose him, adjust the fall of his hair, the angle of his hands, the aspect of the light -- was as fascinating as seeing Nik himself. Whoever took the video -- thank you. It was wonderful being able to share the event.

Perhaps one day I'll have the courage to ask him for another cosplay event. I have a bazillion books to write about Pietas. This is an immortal who ages, then dies and is reborn young. I could keep Nik busy for a long, long time. I can't imagine anyone else portraying my immortal king. After all, Nik is perfect.
