For Love Of A Queen, Part 2

 

For what seemed a moment in time, I knew what heaven was.......

 

As long as I live, I will never forget the memory of that first night.  Every touch, every caress, every detail, burned in my soul by passion.  I could hardly believe it was true.  Ephiny loved me, she desired me!!!!  To feel her lips on mine, her hand gently caressing my cheek.  As the kiss ended, Ephiny took my hand and led me to her hut.  As I stepped through the door, I felt her eyes upon me.  She stepped up behind me, pulling me close, and kissed my neck.  Then she whispered in my ear, "I have longed to do this for so very long.  I love you."  As she said this her hand gently roamed my thigh.  A deep moan and shudder shook my body.  True, there were others, when I felt the need.  But never before had I known the touch of love.  And definitely not like this!!!!  Every inch of me cried out for more of her, and she was more than happy to give me what I needed.  Never had I submitted to my lovers, always I was in control.  Yet here she was asking exactly that of me.  Strangest thing of all, for the first time in my life I wanted to.

Feeling her body on mine, her lips on mine, trailing down and loving the hollow of my breast, this woman was driving me insane.  As she slipped my leathers from my body, touching me everywhere, loving me all the while, I trembled in sweet anticipation.  She quickly shed her leathers, and returned to me.  Never have I ever known anything like the feel of her bare skin against mine for the first time.  She sighed against my breast, "I have wanted this for so long, Poni.  I have loved you for so long." 

So touched was I by her emotion, so excited by her touch, I could only moan and pull her closer, taking her lips with mine once again.  My Eph was a beautiful lover.  Such tenderness, such depth of feeling, of passion.  She took me to Elysia over and over, flying with me again and again, as we took one another to ecstasy.

And as we lie there sated, enjoying the feel, the presence of one another, "I love you, my Ephiny.  I always have and always will."  Taking her hand and gently kissing her palm, "Forever!", I said looking in her eyes and smiling.

 

She looked at me, mischief in her eyes, "I could take that as a proposal, ya know?"

Holding her hand tightly, and uttering the truest words I'd ever spoken in my life, "Well?  I mean it, Eph.  I want you forever, not for just a day.  I've always known it was you.  You complete me, you really do.  You are the best part of me, and I will love you always.  I want you to be mine.  My Queen, would you do me the honor of joining with your humble Weapons Master?" 

I looked in her eyes and saw her smile coming from the depths of her soul.  Gently she kissed my lips, then whispered in my ear, "Yes, poni." 

And with that we became lost in another all over again........

 

For Love Of A Queen, Part 3

The future rolled out before me.......

And for the first time in my life, it was a beautiful thing.  I had found and gained my sun.  I had found my center.  The one to whom I belonged.  And for the first time in my life, I knew peace.

My Ephiny became one of the greatest Queens the Amazons ever knew.  She ruled honestly, fairly, and with a wisdom far beyond her years.  Under her rule, the Amazon Nation flourished.  It's territory expanded.  And with me by her side, her consort and champion.  How privileged did I feel to be loved by someone as wondrous as her.

And as each day was a gift, the nights were a wonder.  Every time we loved one another, was to me like the very first time.  And to just hold her at night, quieted my soul.  Never had I known such love and peace.

We settled into a life of quiet domesticity.  Well, as quiet as the life of a Queen can be.  As hectic as it could be, we found time for the simple things in life.  We even had a child.  No, no, we didn't defy the laws of nature or anything!  A baby girl was found on the steps of Artemis' temple, and we decided to take care of her.  Artemis' oracle told us that one day she would be a great Queen, but that devastation would befall her reign later. We named her Marga, after Ephiny's grandmother.  Artemis' oracle told us that one day she would be a great Queen, but that devastation would befall her reign later.  What joy she brought to our lives!  Eph gloried in motherhood, and it made me fall in love with her all over again.  To watch Marga grow, to hear her first word (Boo was the word.  That became who I was and has been ever since.), to see her first steps, I never knew I could feel so much.  My world was now complete.

Our relationship just continued to grow and deepen.  A lot of things happened, changes came, but through it all we stood together, her and I.  Each and every day was to me a gift, and I intended to never let her forget it.  I'm afraid the Weapons Master became quite soft in respect to this lovely woman.  She held my heart in her hands, and yet always let me know that she held it gently, and would allow no harm to come to it.  She filled something in me, I never even knew existed.  She was my world.

And then the Romans came........
