PostSubject: The Dark Crusades.    Wed Jan 18, 2017 11:29 pm

A few years before the start of Lament....

Deep within the heart of Wallachia two clans were rising in the ranks; they were two noble families similar yet oh so very different. They were the Cronqvist clan and the Belmont Clan, the holy wars were on the rise and the church was seeking soldiers to fight for their cause. However despite the rising turmoil the two families have come together to celebrate the wedding of the young Lord Mathias and his wife Elisabetha. Within the Cronqvist Castle Leon Belmont and his own beloved come to give Leon's dear friend their best of wishes. Sara's hand gently twined around the forearm of Leon as she looks up to her own love Leon Belmont; a sweet smile purses her lips as she could hear the music playing. "Oh Leon, I am eager to see both Elisabetha and Mathias. They are such a good match." she exhales her head coming to rest on Leon's shoulder.

Her azure hues then took in the happy pair but a few feet away talking with other guests; she pointed them out to Leon before guiding him over to his dearest friend since childhood and his now blushing bride. "Mathias, Elisabetha. I must congratulate you." She exhales sweetly to the pair; her innocent smile radiating like the moon's rays on a near lake. "I thank you for inviting us as well. Your wedding was absolutely beautiful! And Elisabetha, you are the prettiest bride I have ever seen!" She says initiating the conversation for her and the rest of them. They were all dear friends; she had known Elisabetha since they were in their youth. Whilst they weren't childhood friends like Leon and Mathias; they were still very close to one another at least she liked to think that. The young woman couldn't be happier for the other pair; she had long since guessed that the two had fallen for one another some time back.

So this beautiful day was more than perfect for a wedding; there had been nothing but the sun's warm rays dancing upon the blades of grass. Not a cloud in the sky to stir one's heart, but a beautiful day. And now the stars were out on the midnight canvas as the reception continued to grow with jubilee; Sara herself was adorned in but a nice blue dress with pearl beading incorporated into her hair. She had her sienna locks were woven into a mid-braid and the rest cascaded down her slender frame. But Elisabetha looked like a goddess from a dream; an angel from heaven at least Sara thought so. "Oh Elisabetha, now that you are married what do you hope to come your way? Family?" She giggles adding but a few more conversation.

( I play Sara, Sami is Mathias, Cathy is Leon/Elisabetha :3 )

Elisabetha smiles gently at Sara her face radiating with warmth and buoyant happiness, "Oh goodness, my dear Sara. I've naught had any time to discuss such things with my beloved. But...." She trails off, her cheeks tinting a rose pink. Children... She wouldn't mind having a couple with Mathias. Perhaps a boy first, to carry on his family's name. But oh, how'd she love having hair to brush and play with, so a girl would be delightful. But perhaps it was much too early after their vows to think of such improper things.

Leon Smiles widely as his arm gently rests at Sara's side, "Ah, Mathias, My friend! How does it feel? To be eternally bound together under God's good graces? I can think of no greater blessing!" he says reaching his free hand to his friend.

((I'm still new to this online RP-ing, so i just kinda just wrote it like I would my stories. I'm sorry it's so bad D: ))

Ever since leaving the altar, Mathias had not released one of Elizabetha's hands, nor did have any desire to do so anytime soon. After all, the beautiful and radiating angel that stood next to him was now his wife under God's good graces. It was still quite the realization for him and every time he reminded himself of this fact, his heart swelled with absolute happiness and joy. A warm and welcoming smile that was seemingly a rare sight to anyone who knew him as a stranger was pursed upon his features as he mingled with the guests that had approached him and Elizabetha to offer their congratulations for their union.

Upon seeing Sara and his dearest of friends approach him, his smile grew ever the wider as he looked upon Leon's form. He nodded deeply as he accepted Sara's congratulations and her thanks. "You have my deepest welcome, my dearest of friends." He said, voicing echoing with a smooth regality. "It wouldn't be the same if you two hadn't come." He smiled as he chuckled at Sara's compliment before he looked to Leon as he was spoken to as the girls spoke with one another. "Ah, like so many things but, mostly happiness. My heart swells with it with every realization that my dearest and I are bound to each other until Death." He said warmly, find those to be the best words to utter to Leon as he accept his friend's free hand with his own.

The words kissed Sara's ears from both parties; her smile grows in radiance as she looks to Elisabetha. "I can only wish you both a long and happy marriage." She repeats as she tucks back a lock behind her ears. "Will you two be having your first dance soon?" She inquires; Sara was a sucker when it comes to romance and she couldn't help support the happy pair. Sara looks to Leon with her bright blue hues. "I can hope that god shines down on my wedding day with Leon like he has done with yours." She sighs softly amorous as she admires the Belmont at her side.

A young man with ebony waves stood against the pillar watching the two set of lovers; his eyes were gold and he was deathly pale. He was adorned in the attire of a civilized man; he purses his lips with a small grin coming to his lips. He could see it dancing around the lady of the day; the gray aura emanating from her. It was a shame really; she was such a lovely woman. But in due time she would belong to him; their marriage would be a sweet yet short one. And he would be there to collect the reward.

Elisabetha smiles gently and gives a slight squeeze to Mathias' hand, "Thank you, darling Sara. As to your second question..." She trails off glancing up at her husband, a slight flush came to her cheeks. He was so handsome, how God had blessed her so with such an intelligent and generous man was beyond her wildest dreams. She caught herself quickly and snapped her attention back to her friend, "Oh dear Sara, I am most positive that the light of God will grant you both a happy and prosperous life together with as many little ones as you wish." She says with a gentle smile. "Mathias, My love... Shall we save the rest of this conversation for after our dance?" She asks, looking up at him again.

Leon's face flushes slightly, "Oh Sara...." He says with a a smile, "As you wish, my Love." He looks down at his affianced with love in his sapphire eyes. This day did him proud, and he was incredibly happy for his dearest friend, and he anticipated nothing but clear skies ahead for his friend and his new bride.

Mathias' attention had been briefly taken away from his dear friends and wife when his icy, gray eyes landed upon a figure across the ballroom. He wouldn't have given the figure much attention if he didn't have quite the unworldly look about him. Compared to the other guests, he didn't look lively nor did he look familiar. Many of the people here Mathias knew fairly well through Elisabetha or the Belmonts. This figure he did not and it unnerved him more than it should have, especially when this stranger man stared at Elizabetha in a way he didn't particularly like. His eyes would visibly harden towards the other's in quiet warning before his attention was returned to his beloved and their friends when Elisabetha inquired to him about their first dance. Of course, could he forget about that?

"Ah, yes! There shall be plenty of time during the feast this evening to talk further with one another." He said with a nod and smile, looking to Leon before speaking again. "Until then, my friend." He said before he took Elisabetha by the hand and led her into the middle of the ballroom right as the band started to play a soft melodic waltz. Mathias took his free hand and placed it upon Elisabetha's waist while continuing to remain holding her other one. He awaited her to place her own free hand upon his shoulder before he led her in an elegant waltz.

As the dance continued on, Mathias started to forget that anyone else was in the room as nothing but the music and Elisabetha's smiling face was before him. "I love you..." He whispered, his voice the barest whisper but so full of love that it didn't need to be any louder. He could simply remain in this moment for centuries and he would happy with that. A eternity like this with the one he loved more than anything was worth it.

[size=10]Sara looks up to her own beloved with a warm smile pursing her lips; she released a heavenly laugh as she cups his cheek gently thumbing it. "Oh Leon, dance with me my darling~" She exclaims leading him to the center of the ballroom as well; she places her on hand his shoulder and the other in the palm of his hand. She always imagining a wedding band on his finger and it made her heart change its tempo. She naturally let him take the lead and as her cheeks flushed a little bit. "Oh Leon, have I ever told you how much you mean to me? I love you so much, a life would without you would be no life at all. Promise me Leon, if you ever have to part from me that you'll be safe and be haste to make it home to me. Promise?" She whispers to him; the thought of him getting hurt or something worse happening it frightened her deeply.

The gentleman continued to the watch the two sets of lovely couples with a bemused grin forming to his lips; he leans against the pillar and crossed his legs watching it all. He eyes the sweet Elizabetha for a little longer, her life essence dancing around her was not as bright as her dear friend's. It was such a shame really; she was truly a beauty. But he also found her to be beautiful that her soul would make a lovely edition to his collection.

Elisabetha smiles and she lets out a slight giggle with a flush, "I love you too, my beloved..." She says, laying her head gently on his chest for a moment. He was perfect. God must have truly loved her to bless her with a man of such beauty and refinement as her darling Mathias. She swooned at the thought of their future. Perhaps they would have a son together to continue on the Cronqvist line? Though to have a son, they would have to.... Her face reddened deeply, as the blood rushed to her cheeks. How dare she be so improper! They had just wed a short bit ago! The... things... that came after must not be thought about.

Leon smiles gently at Sara, "Oh, my love, I swear it to God. I will be at your side forever. And take my word, Sara, When we marry, I hope to make you as happy as you can be. I love you more than anything." He says, squeezing her hand gently in his, looking down at her with an almost intense passion buried in his eyes.

((i feel like i'm crying inside knowing what happens D: kill me))

Mathias' heart only continued to swell with great love for his dearest Elisabetha until he felt as if it was going to burst. He didn't want to let go nor return to the dreadful reality that will greet him once the happiness and festivities were finished. The War loomed over this day and it lingered somewhere in everyone's minds. It was getting worse and Mathias knew in his heart that he and Leon were being considered to join the great battle. It took this day, this beautiful marriage, for Mathias really start contemplating turning down such orders when they come and remain by his newlywed's side. It took looking into her sky blue eyes to realize he didn't want to leave her side. He wanted to give up his title of Knight and take up the new title of husband, lover, and father.

"Forever... No matter what parts us, you'll always remain the light of my heart. My beautiful starlight..." He whispered down to her, his fingers brushing through her golden locks.

((Cathy, don't remind me of that!! DX I am going to sob when I describe his deterioration after the tragedy.))

Sara releases a sweet laugh as Leon twirled her and their hands remained intertwined with one another. She steps towards him breaking their hold just briefly to cup the right side of his cheek; gently she thumbs it as she looks to him with her azure hues. She saw the love and passion burning brightly in his aquamarines. He was by far the most beautiful man she had ever had the honor of knowing; both inside and out. Like Elisabetha, life without this beloved would be hard to fathom and she too wanted nothing more than to spend eternity with him. "Oh Leon, I shall love you till death comes to embrace me. Never will you be without my love." She exclaims kissing him gently on the lips before embracing him entirely; enveloping herself in his warm embrace. In his hold; nothing could harm her. And she knew that; she was safe with Leon and no one could ever tear them apart their love was that strong.

The ebony haired male approaches Mathias and his wife; he bows before the happy pair with a smile. "Pardon me for my intrusion; but may I have a dance with the lovely bride?" He inquires extending his hand out to her; he looks to Mathias for a moment with his dark hues. He was not about to let a moment to inform the lovely bride of the fate that was to come. He and a few others were able to see things that no mortal could.

Leon smiles at Sara gently. He adored her, and was so very ready to take the next step of their relationship together. However, he was unsure of when... With the religious wars spreading throughout Europe... He knew, that he probably wouldn't be able to afford to support Sara without being a knight, but a feeling of dread seeped into his abdomen. What would Sara do if he had passed while away. Would it be better to marry her before he would be called away, or wait until  he would return? He would hate to leave his beloved Sara widowed.... He snapped from his thoughts and looked back to her, "And I love you, my Sara. For the rest of my life." He says gently.

Elisabetha found her attention pulled away from her husband's face at the gentle intrusion. She looked between them for a moment, "Is that alright, my beloved? I see no problem with it." She gently takes her hand from his and moves to take the dark-haired strangers hand. Perhaps she took too much faith in the people around her, but she never had any reason to doubt in another person's behaviors.

The blissful love that had surrounded the two of them came to a swift end when a sinfully sultry voice interrupted the newlyweds loving waltz. It made Mathias' mind crash to reality and a stone cold frown purse the Alchemist' lips. The deathly sick aura this man emitted hit Mathias' like a freight train considering how sensitive he was to such things. His grip on his wife's hand grew tighter, not wanting to let her go in fear that this stranger man wished to do more than just dance.

Mathias' icy eyes hardened towards the stranger, glaring sharp daggers into his soul that did more than warn. He wanted him to back off and it was well-known how scary Mathias could be amongst the guests here. How his icy glare could silence even the strongest warriors and make them feel smaller than they were. No... You will not dance with my wife. You are a stranger here and I want you to leave! Was what Mathias wanted to say but, upon hearing his wife's question and her free hand reach to caress this stranger's; he released how foolish it would be to ruin such a happy day with his paranoia and protective nature.

He looked back towards his wife, his icy glare changing into a calm smile as he reached his hand out to caress her cheek before laying a soft and loving kiss to her lips. "It is fine." He said, his words slightly chipped as he wanted to say differently. He wished his Elisabetha wasn't so trusting, especially with a man that unnerved him so. Mathias hesitantly let her go but, not without shooting the deathly man another icy glare as he moved himself into the crowd before turning to watch his beloved carefully as they danced.

Taking her hand the young man led Elisabetha away from Mathias; without a second glance to the man. He twins his arm around Elisabetha, he laces his hand with hers smirking to her bemused by it all. "Oh milady, I am afraid there is bad news. It pertains to your husband. You must heed me in my warning. Your husband will lose all sense of humanity if you let yourself get sick. I am a seer of things. Milady, in one year's time your passing will cause Mathias to denounce god and lead him into damnation." He says to her seeing no reason in keeping the truth from her. He looks down to her with his cold hues, his face held seriousness as he pulled her close. He leans into her and his lips caressed her ear. "I hope not to have to embrace you till you are but an elderly woman fast asleep and in good health." He whispers softly his hand rising as it thumbed her cheek. He secretly hated taking the lives of innocents; especially in their youth. So young, so in love and barely having a chance to live. They all join him in the end, but they should be able to live their life. That is how he saw it; he was the one to embrace everyone at the end of their journey. He felt almost bad that he would be embracing her in but a year's time; illness would come through the town and claim her. It is Pestilence would steal her away from Mathias; and he sensed Mathias once. He could feel the disturbance in the balance; the tides were changing at a rapid pace.

A pace he did not like one bit; and it nerved him. Mathias; it was in the true seer's premonition that got the god of death taking on his mortal form to try and prevent it. He hoped by doing so; he could spare Mathias the cruel fate that awaited him. If he could ensure Elisabetha's death could be prevented; then Mathias would not fall into darkness and he would not be forced to serve the young lord for eternity. And it would spare an entire clan and its descendants from a life of hunting, despair and so much. It would spare the despair of two other souls in the very same room; two other beings who were also madly in love. Love. A foreign feeling to the dark being; but a thing he adored seeing on the faces of mortals. He could never know the feeling; but he found a sense of peace when he saw others who were living life to the fullest and full of love. The dark being stared into her lovely hues; and a small smile purses his lips as he thumbs her cheeks gently. It was a forward display "You are such a beautiful woman Elisabetha; your soul is that of angel. So virtuous and kind; as the angel of death. I do not want you to pass away so young. You should be able to live a long life with your husband; to love him, to cherish him; to have a family, and to grow old with him. My dear, please heed my cautionary words. Your death will be the changing of the tides; it will shift the balance of things. And I do not want so many to have to suffer. As the being of death; it is never my desire to see people.... To see mortals so naive and virtuous like you, the only people deserve to die cruel and unfair deaths are those who commit heinous acts and crimes." he breathes to her as he stares deeply into her hues.

He took a deep breath as he pulled her close to him placing his lips onto her forehead; kissing the bride gently as he hugs her. He closes his eyes as he then withdraws; he bows promptly taking her hand and kissing the back of it gently. "Please sweet Elisabetha; for all of our sakes. Keep yourself in good health; or darkness will reign this world." He whispers to her giving her one final warning to ensure she does not pass in the time he mentioned; if she could just remain healthy. He did not want to have to guide her over to his realm in one year's time. With that he turns on his heels and slipped away into the shadows of the pillars and then beyond the banquet hall; slipping out of sight and far away from the young girl and her husband leaving her to be frightened or however she wished to feel. He would leave them to their life now; and he would pray that nothing would go wrong.

~

Sara had grown tired from dancing with her beloved; the twirling and twirling made her feet hurt. So it came to a point where Leon led her away to sit at their designated seats at the banquet table; on the left side of head of the table where the groom and bride would be seated. Sara took a sip of her wine as she glances over to Leon with a sweet smile; however her face paled when she saw the bride standing alone looking petrified. "Leon... Look!" She whispers to him with concern rising for her dearest friend.

Elisabetha's face had paled at the strangers words, terror and confusion scrawled dark creases on her soft featured face. She felt a bit faint at his words and trembled weakly. She stood for what felt like a long time, her mind ignorant to the others in the room. This stranger told her she risked dying in but one year. She wanted not to believe his words. She wanted to flee swiftly back into the arms of her beautiful and protective husband. But no matter how she willed her shaking legs to move, they would not. Mathias would fall? He would turn against the Holy Father for something as seemingly unimportant as a single death? With a great deal of effort, she brought her shaking fingers up to her face. She was not feeling well at all. She wanted Mathias, and selfishly wanted the festivities to end so she could cry into him without the judging eyes of their peers. Could she tell him what this strange man told to her in such confidence? Would he give up his position and stay with her with this new possible outcome. She would feel horrible if he gave up something so important to him... She decided, trying to clear her mind, that she would not tell Mathias of it. That way, he would serve their god as he had previously sworn to do.
---
Leon looked to Sara with worry etched into the smile creases of his cheeks. He followed her gaze and looked at the trembling new bride. He rose from his seat, excusing himself quietly and began searching for Mathias to alert him of her appearance.

Standing amongst the few guests that didn't wish to waltz along with the music, Mathias had seen it all. He had seen the closeness this man had forced upon his ignorant wife, the kisses, and that damned hug. This wasn't a family member giving her good graces or local gestures of kindness. This was an absolute stranger who was touching her in ways that was inappropriate for any stranger to do upon a bride. The Alchemist's body quaked with silent fury, not desiring to bring this beautiful day into darkness because he couldn't keep his temper in line.

When the man removed himself from Elisabetha, Mathias made his move swiftly toward him, hellbent to give the stranger a piece of his mind. He rushed passed his beloved, blinded by his anger that he didn't even realize the full extent of hurt this deathly stranger had caused his bride. He would maneuver through the hallways of the cathedral, seeing the dark figure disappearing through the vast crowds before he was seen no more. "Damn!..." He cursed before he turned back and returned to the ballroom where he saw the state of his beloved bride.

It angered him more, sparking an inferno in his heart as he cursed himself for not being quick enough to capture the bastard that hurt his bride. But, he would put that anger away for now as he approached his bride and pulled her into his warm embrace. He silently moved her away from the middle of the ballroom and everyone's stares and whispers before he proclaimed to them. "Continue with the festivities. She is just feeling ill, no need to worry yourselves." He said, trying to calm the crowds as he removed her from the ballroom entirely and brought her into an alcove in the back of ballroom where the music was barely audible. He removed his frightened Elisabetha from his chest and looked her into her deep blue hues with great worry as he caressed her cheeks and golden locks from her face.

"Elisabetha. What ails you so? What did that devilish man do to you?" He whispered to her, kissing her forehead as he looked down at her.

Leon rushed towards the alcove where the newlyweds stood. Noting the forward behavior of his best friend, he felt bad and felt incredibly improper to have witnessed such an intimate exchange. Despite the sinking feeling in his abdomen, he moved out of sight, straining his ears to hear them, wishing to be able to ease his friend's concerns.

Elisabetha felt a sob lodge itself in her throat. What was she supposed to tell her beloved Mathias? That the stranger told her that her own death was quickly approaching? Her precious husband might not let her out of his sight for the next year, and he had such an important job to do for their Lord and God. But yet again, if she was meant to die, would that mean even if she somehow found some way to not get sick, would God claim her soul in another way? 'no...' she thought, tears flooding her eyes, 'God is just and he is kind. He never takes without a reason.' But then the words the stranger first spoke entered her mind again. Her Mathias would denounce god if her life ended. She must beg him to not let her life's ending make so much of an impact on his own soul. She would have to tell him. Perhaps that way, he could brace himself for the chance of her death. He would be able to grieve safely, without damning his soul.

"My Darling..." she whispered out, placing her head gently on his chest, "The man said he knew of the future." She pulled her head back up, allowing tears to trail down her cheeks. She reaches her hand up to cup Mathias' cheek, "I beg of you, my love, do not lose yourself if something happens to me!" Her hand trembled slightly, as she ran her thumb over his cheek. She couldn't stop her tears as much as she willed herself to. She felt awful for she knew this would probably scare him and worry him. She didn't want for this to break him or make him unwilling to continue his own progression.

Elisabetha's words made his heart drop to the deepest pits of his stomach as his brows furrowed with great upset and concern for his bride. This beautiful day was crashing down around him and he wanted it to stop. Why couldn't this day have remained full of light and happiness? Why did that devilish man have to utter such things to his fragile angel and ruin everything? He didn't understand it and that frustrated him. This day was suppose to be a day blessed by God himself yet, men of the Devil's whims were being allowed to ruin it all. How was this possible? How could God allow this to happen to two mortals who have been more than faithful to the deity?

Elisabetha's tears saddened Mathias as he reached out to wipe them from her cheeks before he answered her troubling words. "W-what? The future? How...How is that possible?" He questioned, thinking about it for a moment while coming up with no explanation for it himself. Yes, the man had an otherworldly feeling about him but, a seer was not what Mathias would suspect. But, despite his doubts on Elisabetha's words, he would believe her as she was not a woman to lie or make up tales like this. Of course, it was that knowledge that only unnerved Mathias as she continued on.

"If I lose you? Elisabetha, what makes you think such things on this day? You will live a long and fruitful life with me until we grow old and die in each other's arms." He whispered to her carefully before his face contorted to anger. "Did he threaten you?"

Elisabetha gasped slightly and pulled her hands up to her face, "Oh no! He did no such thing. He said he wanted to warn me... And warn of your emotional well-being should I suddenly fall ill." she began to explain quickly looking down to the ground. She knew she sounded mad, but deep down, she was deeply worried by the strange man's words.

She pressed her head against his chest again, "Please promise me. Promise on your love for me. Promise if anything happens to me, don't let it destroy you." Tears poured again from her eyes. Her sobs escaped her throat as she sobbed quietly. She brought her arms around him. She held him for a time, trying to calm herself listening to his heartbeat.


i'm sorry it's so short D;

Standing beyond the alcove with serious hazel hues; a tall muscular man adorned in fine furs over dark armor he was no other than Bruno Domsecu. He was a dear friend to Mathias and Leon; his gaze swept over the surroundings as a frown pursed his lips. His hand fell to the hilt of his sword. He had seen the scene play out; he had watched the fear rise in her body. Like Mathias he slipped into the crowd searching after the man who caused fear and alarm on this joyous day. "Hmm...." He turns on his heels making his way back towards the church hall. He pauses for but a moment when he sensed a feeling of dread wash over him. Twisting his gaze back towards the forest he saw the man standing there; the ebony haired man who caused Elisabetha the fear.

Bruno turns making his way towards the man with a frown on his lips; the young man stood at the mouth of the forest as Bruno came towards him. "You. You, what did you speak to Lady Cronqvist?!" He growls drawing his sword on the man who had ruined such a lively, a joyous day. "All I said was to her was to heed my warnings, and to remain safe. I have seen things that would be devastating to the Cronqvist family. I can only hope I am doing the family right by performing the warnings I have given to the lady." He replies before disappearing in a form of mist; leaving Bruno's own complexion to pale.

Backing away Bruno returned to the festivities; his gaze swept about searching for Leon. Mathias's best man; he had seen something inhuman. Whatever that man was; he was far from human. The sense of dread when in the man's presence; it made Bruno's stomach churn. "Leon!" He calls out seeing the young blonde; but he paused should he continue this? He did not want to ruin any lively moods that were remaining; however he felt that he should make light of the situation with Leon Belmont at least. Sheathing his sword he clears his throat. "Leon, the man. He has gone now, but..." he begins to state pausing briefly, "I do not think he was human." he murmurs softly with a frown as he thought more on the situation. "Matter not, let us return to the festivities. I am sure your beloved must be missing you or even fretting over you." He exhales to him placing his hand on Leon's shoulder.

~

Sara scratched at her cheek gently as she wore a frown on her features; she wanted to comfort her friend. But Mathias had led her away rightfully so; and Leon had gone after his dear friend and his lady. She was left sitting at the banquet table to basically twiddle her thumbs; her cerulean orbs had an array of emotions swirling around within them like broken waves crashing against the cliff side. "Mmm.... I hope they are all right." She murmurs softly; there was a clearing of the throat and a deep charming voice kissed her ears when she heard the words of "Oh my dear, you look so sad. May I interest you in a dance to get a smile back to that lovely face of yours." She glances to her right to take in an extremely handsome man adorned in glory; a Lord? A prince? He was so handsome she nearly fainted; his gaze was bewitching. Those garnets. She had never seen such eyes before. Her heart, its beating stopped for but a moment. "Oh, I do not mind a dance good lord." She exhales to him offering him that radiant smile that was so infectious you couldn't help but smile yourself.

Taking his hand she walked at his side to the center of the ballroom; when his hand twined around her waist and the other laced their fingers together. She could feel her cheeks flush; by the sweet lord why was she acting like this? It was unlike her. Never had she ever swoon like this, especially for another man that was not Leon. She could feel her head becoming light as the butterflies in her stomach began to take flight as the music began to play behind her; her heart was pounding so loudly if you had super hearing you could hear it. She lifts her head to look into his hues where she became instantly lost in this man. "My Lord, I do not believe we have exchanged our names. Nor do I believe we have ever had the honor of meeting one another. I am Sara." She exhales sweetly; her voice full of innocence and kindness. Like an angel from the heavens; much like her dearest Elisabetha. The two together were like angels sent to the two young men they adored so much. But at this very moment; Sara could feel her heart becoming bewitched by another man's handsome features. 'This man... I have never seen anyone like him before...' she thought to herself as she offered the Lord another warm hearted smile.

Should Elisabetha fall ill...

Those words did not comfort Mathias in the least bit, in fact, they only worried him as he held Elisabetha closer. He worried that this stranger's words held more truth than he wanted he wanted to believe. And if he was going to take heed of such troubling words, he knew he would have to give up any orders given to him by the Holy Vatican so he could remain with by Elisabetha's side. He would tend to her if she got sick, he would make herbs and put his alchemy into better use by helping the one he loved.  

Mathias pursed his lips into a deeply troubled frown, his fingers caressing through her soft golden locks as he continued to stare into her saddened eyes. He would reach up and touch her hands as they arose to her face, bringing them down to where he was cupping them within his own. "I wont allow you to fall ill. I will prevent such a fate from be falling you if that is what is truly decreed." He uttered, having a hard time saying such words as he looked upon her as she hugged him tightly, holding him closely as he wrapped his arms around her as well. He thought upon her words but, he assured himself that nothing would happen. He would protect her like the good husband he vowed he would be. Until Death do they part...

"I promise but, I will not let such a thing happen to you. I will not allow it. You have my word on that as well." He uttered to her before he continued on. "What do you want to do, Elisabetha? Do you wish for me to excuse the festivities early? You are quite troubled and I will understand if you wish for all of this to end..."

---

Truly, the young hunter's beloved was quite the radiant angel to behold. He had never quite seen a woman like her but, perhaps that was because the only women he has ever been involved in have been the succubi that frequent his Castle. They were all Chaos born and creatures of pure sin, they only existed to bring pleasure and take pleasure from any who would allow it. This Sara was not like that and Walter liked it, despite how dark his heart had grown over his centuries of life.

"Walter. Lord Walter Bernhard, my lady." He purred to her as he returned a sultry smile her way as he continued to dance with the mortal. "And I am honored to met you."

Elisabetha looked away with embarrassment painted on her cheeks. She didn't feel right having the festivities end on her behalf, but deep down, she did want to end them so she could get started on her life with her husband, especially if the stranger's words were true. But Elisabetha had faith in her husband. He would hold to his word, and would protect her and hers with his very being. Her cheeks flushed even further as she subconsciously shuffled her feet shyly, "Would I be considered improper to say how i... I wish to..." She looks down at her feet now, "How I wish for our time alone to commence soon?" She finishes, stumbling slightly over the words and their meanings.

---
Leon glanced to Bruno with a frown, "What do you mean by... Not Human...?" He mutters quietly, turning back to the ballroom. His abdomen felt like it was twisting in knots. What was this horrible feeling rushing him. He needed to get back to Sara.

What he saw however filled him with dread. Sara seemed to be enraptured by a tall man that Leon could almost see a line of red around his frame. Leon had no idea what this terrible sinking feeling was caused by, but he was filled with a new emotion seeing the two. Fear.

He began to make his way through the crowd of fellow nobles to his beloved Sara.

Bruno felt a brow rise as he watched Leon slip back inside in a rather swift fashion; as if he were alerted of something else entirely. The man slipped in along with the rest of them; he needed to reacquaint himself with the guests awaiting the bride, groom and a few other guests. Bruno, however would remain forever vigilant for the sake of Mathias and his beloved Elisabetha.

----
"Lord Walter Bernhard.... That's a rather strong and handsome name~. Bernhard? Isn't that a Germanic form of Bernard which is consisted of the name Bern which means Bear and Hard which means bravely, hardy~?" She giggles out to the man as he twirls her outward and then back inward to him. Sara was a woman who secretly took pride in learning the meaning of things; especially names. Like how she knew Leon's last name was a french last name which meant lovely hill; or beautiful mountain and that Mathias's surname was of Swedish origin which meant crown of twigs and thorns. This man was truly handsome; and for but a few fleeting moments with him she had almost forgotten all about her beloved Leon. Her surroundings had long since melted away while in the man's presence. "My Lord, you dance extremely well. But I am curious, are you a friend of Lord Cronqvist or Lady Cronqvist? And why haven't I seen you here in the town before?" she inquires curiously still lost in the dance.

Mathias took in Elisabetha's shy words with a soft smile as he lifted the hands, that were preciously cupped within his own, to his lips. He placed the softest of kisses upon her delicate hand before he commented on her innocent question. "No, I don't believe it is improper at all. We are married and, I believe, it would be blasphemy if we denied ourselves of such wishes." He said, a sultry smile coming to his lips as he leaned in and captured her lips in his own. It was a kiss that lasted awhile and was so filled with passion and love for the woman that stood before him. Eventually, after a few several minutes of passionate kissing, Mathias would break the lovely kiss to look back upon Elisabetha. "Our time together will come sooner than we think and then, we will belong to each other in more ways than just our souls." His voice just the barest of whispers as smiled even brighter, trying to beat back all his worries with just a simple smile.

"Are you ready to return? I fret that Sara is worrying heart out for you and you know how she gets." He chuckled with a slight jest as he awaited her answer.

~~~~

"Why, yes. You are quite right about that, Lady Sara."An impressed smirk pursed itself upon his handsome lips as he nodded to her inquiry and continued to lead her in a graceful waltz. "My family lineage traces back to Germany, where my family owned plentiful territories of which he was Lord. When he passed, I gained such an inheritance but, as you can see, I have never enjoyed staying in one place to long." He smiled as he continued to lead her along, spinning her close to him so that her back was against his chest and he was holding her arms criss-crossed along her chest as they swayed with the slow and sultry beat of the waltz. "Hm, a distant friend would be the best description for me." He commented, looking up to glance towards where Mathias had disappeared to. Yes, he knew Mathias as the man had indulged himself in the curiosities of Walter's vampirism multiple times.

Mathias had been quite the enthralled fellow and, sometimes, it made Walter curious if the other was thinking about accepting such a gift. Of course, with Mathias being so tied into God's good graces, Walter knew such a possibility had a slim chance of occurring but, it didn't stop Walter from imagining what would become of Mathias if he had accepted the Gift. He could be such a valuable asset. It was a shame... "I don't live in town, nor in this territory. I have a home on the borders of Romania. It is quaint and lonely, but I enjoy it. It's view is breathtaking." He purred into her ear as they swayed, glancing up to then notice a curious blonde whose express seemed quite displeased. Walter would spin Sara out once again before dancing normally with her until the music finally came to a stop. "Well, that was quite the glorious dance. I do hope I was able to return that beautiful smile to your features once more." He purred softly to her, raising her hand to his lips to kiss the palm.

Elisabetha pulled her hands gently from his hold and patted her still flushed cheeks with her fingertips. She could only imagine what people would think if they came back to the ballroom after having been alone with her husband for quite a bit of time, gently out of breath and face flushed... Even those thoughts alone didn't help, as her face's blush only deepened at the thought. "U-Uh..." she started barely above a whisper, "I believe I might step out for a moment to clear my mind, But I promise I'll be right back in once my thoughts straighten themselves out..." She said looking off to the side.

~~~~~

Leon felt anger start to simmer in his core. Why had there been so many people he didn't recognize at his own best friend's wedding ceremonies? People, at that, who stole the time and company of the two ladies! He continued to move to his Sara, That horrible feeling in his abdomen only worsening as he got closer. 'Something is wrong' he thought to himself, 'not even an upset stomach has ever made me like this... What is the cause of this discomfort?!'

A familiar face was standing in the gardens to where Elisabetha had slipped off to her; her ebony locks glistened under the descending sunlight. Vasilica better known by other formation of her name Vasilisa. Vasilisa Cronqvist to be exact. Elisabetha's now mother in law, the woman was adorned in a royal blue gown that only radiated her midnight beauty. If it was ever a wonder where Mathias got his looks from; one look at his mother and it would most certainly obvious. She glances over her shoulder noting the young bride. "My dear, if you keep slipping away people will start to gossip." She says turning to her completely face the blonde. Those familiar frost hues looked into her now daughter in law. Her son was marrying for love. How rare. It was something she however never had the honor of having; she knew Elisabetha would be beyond happy with her son. She had raised him right after all; she had ensured not only would he be a gentleman but he would be a man of intelligence in a world of buffoons.

Vasilisa had been the daughter to the previous Lord Cronqvist; he had ending up marrying her to Lord Dragomar, Mathias's father. Being the only heir to the fortune and everything that the family stood to inherit; her father requested whoever married his daughter took their name to ensure the Cronqvist line would continue. Vasilisa had not been pleased with the arrangement of who she was to be married with; an Alchemist much like her but after marrying her and sealing the clan's legacy. He never spent much time at home or with her. Both had become unfaithful to one another; he however was the first to be unfaithful. She dedicated herself to her son mostly; seeing that education be his talent on this world. With whit and cunning one could have anything. Elisabetha was being blessed well; and Vasilisa herself was quite fond of the girl. The girl had a hunger for knowledge much like her. She would do well in the clan; and would bear Mathias many sons and daughters.
"Elisabetha, what ails you?"
~

When he had pulled her close to his chest; his arms holding her Sara's lips pursed as a smile grew on her face. The mere sight of her would cause Leon pain. It was like she was in love, in love with someone who wasn't Leon. Her eyes had closed and she rested her head against him; but with the fading music and the spun outward and back in Sara looked up into the garnet hues of Walter. "I have never been to the borders." She whispers to him softly. "Perhaps one day I shall travel there and take in the view too." she adds sweetly as the music came to an end. With his final words only offered him that infamous and heavenly smile of hers. "Oh thank you for the dance. And of course you bring a smile to my lips! Perhaps we shall meet again Lord Bernhard~" She exclaims as he withdrew from her; she nearly jumped from her skin when she felt a hand touched her waist gently.

She spun around to take in Leon; the moment their eyes met she felt like a sudden wave washed over her. It was however a calming one; she offers a smile to him. "Oh Leon~ My darling, is everything alright? Your face it has grown pale...." She whispers noting his seriousness; her smile began to fade had something happened while he had been away from her side
