Onyx


I felt the intensity still pressing upon my mind, threatening to consume me. I couldn't believe I was being so weak that even the simmering of the sun upon my back seemed to want to throw me to the ground. It seemed as if the land was displeased, like it longed for more - longed for him. Unnaturally, my pillars felt wobbly, wanting to collapse as they had so embarrassingly in front of my love. As I tread on, half concerned about her, half concerned about getting out of here as soon as possible, it seemed to be more painful. Every step was like a mountain, but hadn't I been trained to deal with this sort of obstacle? Shouldn't I be stronger instead of wanting to run away like a young pup with my tail between my legs? No, I would keep going - for her, for us....or at least, what I wanted us to be.

"Armada," I heard my vocals hit the air and crackle hoarsely. I didn't care how it sounded. The pain was only an illusion to my mind now, a distant mirage that I hardly noticed. Other matters, ones that pressed closer to my heart, were more important. This couldn't go a moment longer when he was still trying to steal her heart away from me. My skull, I held high and erect, trying to grasp that last piece of fallen pride, trying to hide that limp in my step. I perked my harks forward, seeming alert and 'in the moment'. Still, I was myself. It would have been stupid to try to live up to what that monster was when I could never be that savage or insane. My heart belonged to hers, and she was the only one with the ability to rip it out of my chest.

Anything could happen in this conversation, and I already knew how Venom didn't like me. It wasn't that I wanted to make it any worse...or declare my love to her. It was simply a necessity of life. The time had come for me to grow from my childish ways and become a real stag. They didn't deny what they felt; they didn't hide it below a lack of emotion. I cleared my throat, ready for the plunge - ready for the worst to happen. I sometimes wished these days that the cobalt stag had ended me, but I couldn't leave them alone now. They meant too much. Even though the son of Armada didn't return the feeling, I saw him as a brother. I saw her as someone to trust, someone to love. After all, she had been the only one that seemed to give a damn when I was deemed to a life of slavery by that pallid hellion stag. She saved my life, and now, I would make ours complete.

Her strength was depleted, as were her spirits, as she trod through the sands of her once great land. It had been great when she had been queen. Now it was dark and full of hatred, since that foolish cobalt stag had swept the sands from beneath her feet. At first she had been angry, and had wanted to seek revenge. But something in her seemed to die. Perhaps it was a sign that she was not fit to rule anymore. Her judgment of that stallion had failed, and she wondered if she was losing her touch. The thoughts were driving her mad, and Armada had lost nearly all faith in her self.

Though she was lost in her own downtrodden thoughts, the faint call of a stallion reached her ears, barely breaking through the barrier of her mind. Slowly, she came back to the present, and searched for the source of the call. The call sounded familiar but she could not place it. It seemed as if Armada had lost her mind, lost all grasp on her previous life. Losing her standing as queen had completely fried her mind. It seemed as if she was forcing her self to walk in the direction.

As she approached, she slowly began to place the face of the stallion, but she could not remember the stag's name. "You called me?" she asked, her tone rather emotionless, and she greatly lacked her normal sarcastic attitude.

I stood there, feeling my lungs fill up shallowly and release in a staggered way as the padding of daggers in the deep sounds appealed to my harks. At first, I had wondered why I had chosen to finally tell her the truth...second..I didn't know where all this courage had come from. Possibly, it could have been due to the recent taking of their abode or that some issues simply needed resolving. On the horizon, I saw her beautiful glimmering form dancing on the dunes, those ivory shining orbs glaring in an emotionless daze into mine as she sauntered closer to me. None but god could know how this conversation would go...but I would hope for the best and wouldn't whine if she turned me down.

Even to the strongest fighters, I looked like a threat - and I was, in that aspect. When I came to love, though, I felt weak and scared, feelings that had hardy bothered me since I came to live here. This land seemed to put a callous on one's soul. How it did, I didn't know, for I claimed to be neither a genius nor a world power. They were the only ones that seemed to know the important things in life, but all I wanted to know right now was how to show her how I feel.

Something about her seemed strange today, something seemed to have drastically changed about her soon after the cobalt stag announced his command. No longer had she that zest that he was so accustomed to, that ever living sarcasm that seemed to dwell in her orbs. She had lost it, but not in the way one would ever think her too, myself included. "Armada," I whispered, my ebony tassels whipping around my neck easily as a sand storm brewed on the horizon. Sands were already swirling around my skull violently, but these storms came and went just as leaders did in many of the desert lands. What an unfortunate point of life it was, but there was nothing any of us could do about it except for endure the bastard until his time came, too.

"I must speak with you about something..." I replied, taking a nervous, reluctant step in her direction as I reached my nose out to greet her. Only the weak beat around the bush with these sorts of things, so I would come out and tell her directly. "I love you," I said, trying to bring that confidence back that I had mustered up all those other times in battle. If only she could see the strength I actually had within myself, she would love me too, I assured myself. Would she fall for more of Frenzy's lame tricks or me? That was the bull's-eye question.

Her white eyes looked him over listlessly. It was as if she was not there. Physically, yes, she was. But mentally it appeared she was elsewhere. Somewhere, deep inside her, emotion stirred slightly as she looked at Onyx. It seemed as if she felt badly as she saw the slight concern in his gaze. She knew that he knew she wasn't right. The darkness was slowly weakening her will power. The hatred that was feeding the darkness was only making her more susceptible it's power.

Even with the new stag here, the lands still wanted her more than ever. With her low spirits, she knew she wouldn't last long. But then she drew closer to Onyx. Being near him was like a breath of fresh air and for a moment, when he said her name, and spoke three words to her, her mind cleared. Armada could not specify what she heard him say but she felt the meaning radiate through her entire body. She stepped closer to him and smiled softly, touching her nose to his. She loved him, as well, though she would not say it aloud.

But she knew that he would understand that her gesture meant she loved him, too. In those few moments when her mind was clear, a plan began to form in her mind. "Onyx, we have to get this stag out of here," she murmured quietly, blocking her thoughts easily from any outside intrusions, especially Frenzy. Armada couldn't be sure how long she could keep the pulse of the dark lands from her brain but she was quite positive it wouldn't be too much longer.
