Zarek stared at Aishe as she fell, he grabbed her and hauled her up from the floor, she hadn't fallen to the ground but as she squirmed against him he helped her sit, she rubbed her left thigh and groaned in pain. He crouched in front of her, "Are you injured?" He asked.
"No, it's... already healed." She said waving her hand.
"An old ache?" he asked, she nodded.
"You're crazy." She said and looked up, her eyes had glowed amber gold in the dark, but a startling blue in the sun, that was how he knew her for who she was. Princess Aishe, second daughter of Anubis, first and only daughter of Isis. He shook his head, and she snorted at him. That bubbly child he knew as an infant was gone in the wake of this woman sitting before him. Aishe had grown, she had matured as a human, and her powers simmered under the surface.
"I am not crazy, my princess, I speak to you the truth." He said, her brown red hair cascaded in feathered darkness. It was close to black in the shadows and close to auburn in the light. She was the blending of darkness and light. Her father a funeral god, her mother the goddess of motherhood. Aishe was a lost daughter to their kingdom, no one knew od Isis' daughter, only that Anubis' daughter was missing. If anyone knew the truth they dared not speak of it."I will prove to you my allegiance to the jackal god, your father."
He stood up and surrendered to his true form, he sank to the floor on all fours as his body shifted to that of a jackal, his black fur bristled as his jewelry rattled. He looked up into the shocked face of Aishe. She reached out her eyes suddenly glowing bright gold, she inhaled. "I know you." She spoke, he returned to human form, kneeling before her.
"I watched over you as a baby." Zarek spoke, "I ferried you between your mother and father."
"You just turned into a jackal." She inhaled, "I just saw you change into an animal. The drugs have sank into my brian, I've lost my mind."
"Princess Aishe, that is not true." he grabebd her shoulders, wanting to shake her into her senses. She looked at him, then blinked.
"My name is Juliet." She said, he frowned.
"Youre mother named you Aishe, for peace." He said.
"My name is Juliet." She said with force, he nodded.
"Juliet, I tell you and show you the truth, you are the goddess of peace." He said and searched her eyes, she stood, and winced as she did so, he helped her up. She stepped away and walked down the hall then stopped.
"I dont kow what mental hospital you escaped from, but I am not going crazy with you." She entered her room and he stayed outside the door, he inhaled her scent, it was identical, only it now held the scent of woman and lust in it. He felt his cock twitch in response, he argued with his libido and leaned against the door.
"What can I say that will prove my truth to you, I showed you my true form, I am the gaurd of your past." He said and sank to the floor. "I can take you home, to Anubis himself."
"You are absoultely nuts." She said, he could sense her close to the floor next to him.
"Close youre eyes, inhale slowly, and seek the truth, you can sense it better than anyone." He told her, "Seek deep inside you and you will know I do not lie."
He waited as he listened to her heartbeat slow, her power swelled and he as sure this was the first time she had felt its magnificence. She gasped as she opened the door, "You are telling the truth." She said, he stood and nodded.
"I am, and I, Zarek gaurd of Anubis, swear to your service." He said, she blinked at him before she turned and walked to the desk she had littered with paper. He looked at it and she sighed.
"I am the daughter of Anubis?" She asked. "Who is my mother?"
"It is not my place to tell you princess." he admitted as much as his heart ached to do so, but out in the wide world, words had power, and he dared not chance his enemies hearing him. As the daughter of Anubis, no one would question the words on the wind, but the daughter of Isis, that would carry.
"The god that judges the dead?" She asked in skepticism.
"Yes." He said, "He has been in despair the past twenty years, he mourns the loss of his second daughter, Kebechet has not been herself either, her sister went missing before I could get to her."
Taking a liberty to get her listening Zarek cupped Juliet's face, she looked at him those gold eyes seeking his. "Forgive me my failure." He whispered, her hand lifted to his and she stilled listening. "I will take you back, back to Egypt, you will know the truth and see you're true nature there."
She looked down at the papers on the table and he knew what they were, bills of her fathers. She had been stuck with the bills after his death, it was not a fiar trade, her life for his debt. "I will free you from the confines of your human life." He offered. "I will show you the wonder and beauty of our world."
She looked at him and knew that his words were awakening her heart, her human nature was slipping away as she looked at him. Then she stepped back, "I dont know what is true, I cant possibly be going crazy." She shook her head.
"Think on it princess, I will wait." he walked from her, he had sprung quite alot on her, she needed to cope, understand the truth he knew she could feel. He would watch over her, and protect her until she decided to return home. He might need help but for now, he as enough to gaurd human Juliet, at least until she knew herself as Aishe the goddess. If that was so, he needed to call Cain Mau, Isis' gaurd for Aishe. Not keen on that idea Zarek left that on the back burner for now.
