Cain sat tapping his boot as he waited. He was listening to his Mistess order him about as usual, she was frantic with the arrival of her daughter. To be honest Cain was awed to find the lost princess alive. Trust that mutt Zarek to sniff out anything in sight. Cain was releived, they were back in business, the shame of their failure... more Cains than Zareks... could fade away. As he saw them enter the terminal he saw Zarek's balck hair first, then he came into view, carrying the most beutiful woman he;d ever seen. She had long auburn hair, and bright blue eyes. She was carried int Zarek's arms, he walked close and Cain let his temper flare. "What took you so long idiot?" he hissed at Zarek.
"Princess this is Cain, your mother's gaurd." Zarek spoke, he smirked as Cains hackled raised at his flippant tone, this was the Peace Keeper. "Well Cain, come help."
Cain looked at him oddly, what did he mean? Zarek shook his head and let out an exhasperated breath. "Carry her to a chair so she can rest." Zarek said as Cain lept to hold out his hands.
"What is wrong with her?" he asked.
"I have a crippled leg." She said and he looked at her in shock, she could understand their language. he saw Zarek's ankh on her neck and knew why. He turned as Zarek went off to collet her belongings. He walked to a line of chairs and sat her down.
"Which leg?" he asked, she looked at him an pointed to her left. He sat back as pain assailed him, this was his fault. If he hadnt been tired that night, hadnt been so trusting of the wind, he'd have known... he could have saved her. He cursed and turned his back to her, she touched his back.
"Zarek told me you two blame yourself." She whispered, he turned to her, seeing those bright blue eyes of Isis. She smiled at him and he was undone, this wasnt the infant he had farried to Zarek. This wasnt the child Anubis and Isis had hidden away, this was a woman ready to see change. She was ready to face fate head on, and with a cripple no less. He cursed fate and looked at Zarek, who was carrying two bags, that was all? Surely their princess had more.
"Where's the rest?" he asked.
"She left it behind, said it wasnt needed for the future." Zarek said before knealing infront of her. "The leg?"
"Still stiff." She said, then looked at Cain. "Can I touch your hair?"
He started from his spot and looked at her in shock, he sat next to her as Zarek stayed where he was massaging her knee, before it traveled up the outside of her jean covered leg, the muscles jumped. Her hands travelled into his hair and she laughed. "I was right, I do know both of you." She smiled and sat back her eyes closed as Zarek worked. Cain felt relief in his heart, she did recognize him, he looked at his rival and partner Zarek. He looked pleased but shot an annoyed look at Cain, "Go get us a cab."
"Watch it hound, you go get the cab." Cain hissed, his eyes flashing at Zarek as the princess lifted her hand hand signalled them to silence.
"Lets all go get a cab." She smiled and Cain felt her warmth wash through him, he felt his arousal stir and he looked at them sitting there, a foreign emotion lodged in his chest. Was it lust? For both of the? He swallowed hard as he stood,"I'm Juliet by the way."
Zarek swooped her up and was gone down the walk way, Cain stared at them in shock, before he burried the emotions under the surface. He was a servent to Isis, lusting after her daughter and a predetor of his species was forbidden and just plain stupid. he had a job to do and he'd be damned if Zarek would mess with his head, like he had all those years ago, when they had been fools with the princess in their custody.
