The Magician's Assistant

Post by truly0bsessed » Sat Sep 06, 2014 12:10 am

The Magician's Assistant loved the Magician more than she'd thought possible. The Magician was a spiteful man. His power was ruled by his hatred. He could smile and laugh with a lighthearted air, but under it all she knew his heart was in darkness.

When she confessed her feelings, his answer stung but didn't surprise her. "Love is dangerous. It had the power to make me, and has the power to break me." The pain in his eyes showed the love he kept at bay, and it was with her own love that she disappeared to save him from himself.
