    I tried so hard and got so far, but in the end it doesn't even matter
    I had to fall to lose it all, but in the end it doesn't even matter
    Artemis Dagger


    It never changed. The ceiling of his apartment. No matter how much he stared at it lately, it was the same basic panel of white. Unmoving. Maybe there was more dust now, considering he had turned the cleaner away the past few days. He wanted to be alone. To wallow in his own mess like the piece of shit he really was. To soak in his own self-loathing because that was all he deserved.

    He fucked up.
    He was still, fucking it up.

    But it couldn't be helped... that message... those pictures. They had broken him. Any hope that he could have had a happy ever after with the girl he had so hopelessly fallen for was gone. She was alive. This he knew, but seeing her in that state was an all too vivid reminder of what he'd been through, and the dangers of the world he would be pulling her into if they chose to be together. He couldn't do this, expose her to the toxic cesspool that was his life. His family was a danger to her. He was a danger to her.

    The timing of all of it had been so utterly tragic; First, his mother had visited. Good ol' Maggie Dagger, popping in to visit her eldest son for a check-in. One might assume it would be for a catch-up but it was not. With her visit came a warning. They had seen the gossip columns and heard sightings of the pair together. Of course, they had been watching, he never doubted that they would be, but them caring enough that his own mother, who only spoke to him in only the most minimalist manner a mother could have, would come to his actual home just to break it to him. To give him a cool, brutal truth that was no doubt pushed forward by the revelation that was Pandora's pregnancy.

    They were putting it all on him.

    More so than they were already, he was to take up the front lines as the face of the family. The family events and social meetings that he had escaped from due to his work with Hidden Blades were no longer enough, he would now have to come forward as one of the faces of the Dagger family and show the world their glory.

    A glory that Sivvy wasn't a part of. His mother had certainly pushed that fact. They weren't going to accept her, and if he chose to bring her into their lives. He would have to face the consequences. Even so, he'd been willing to call their bluff, to say fuck you to his parents and do it anyway. He would've.

    But those messages...

    The first thing he'd thought when he received them was to blame his family, to assume that they had done it as a means to control him. And if it wasn't bad enough the sheer rage and pain that had overcome him had caused something ... even more terrifying to happen. Morte had seized the opportunity and claimed Art's mind. Three days of blank space now resided in his mind and when he came to, he was lying on his shower floor, blood spiralling down his drain, specks of it lingering on his face, arms and chest.

    It had been the Commander that contacted him, left him a voicemail letting him know that Sivvy was alive and suggesting he come to Amber Island to see her. But he hadn't gone... and now so much time had passed. He couldn't go. He couldn't put her in any more danger. And now he lay on the sofa of his living room, staring at his shitty white ceiling.

    Everything was so fucked.

    Sivvy was angry. Raw. As she came to the door of his multi-story condo door, she didn’t even pause to knock or ring and wait like a normal person. No, that would give him a chance to escape, and Sivvy was nothing if not direct. While most would shy away from the painful thing, she wanted to look it in the eye, confront it, do something about it. It was uncertain what she actually planned to do, which was unlike Sivvy. She almost always had a meticulous plan, but this time she was operating on her emotions as inefficient as that was. It was unwise but unavoidable. Ever since Thana, she'd been unable to shut off her feelings even though she had no idea how to handle them. Her loss to the warlord threw every aspect of her life out of balance. Everything was in conflict with each other. Things were both real and not real, dream and reality. Was Artemis real and consciously staying away from her, or was this just her drifting, dead consciousness making him stay away because she was finally aware he wasn't real? Never in her life had the clone been so hurt and confused, and since she couldn't find Thana to take it up with her, she'd go for the next biggest thing on her mind.

    She wasn’t even certain he was there, but the clone was willing to take that chance. Though her strength had yet to return to her in full, she was still plenty strong enough to kick the door right off the hinges as if it was nothing but cardboard. There was no calling for him or hesitation as she stepped inside and onto his sleek floors. Artemis wasn't down here. She stomped right past the street paintings, the glass and chrome, and the car models. He was upstairs if he was here. Straight to the elevator she went, a woman scorned and on a mission. She'd start in the lounge. As the sliding doors opened and she stepped in, she just had to press the floor she wanted and wait. Usually patient, she found waiting to be the worst part.

    She was hurt too. Not just in body, for those had healed enough for her to function, but in mind and soul. In her time of greatest need, in her greatest failure and her first real loss, the one person she wanted to see most to ground her was mysteriously absent. She’d laid in the infirmary and waited, watching her friends come and go, but not him. He wasn’t there. She felt his heartbeat from the bracelet at her wrist, the cheesy little gift that probably meant nothing to him, but everything to her. It was her only comfort. Her only connection. The pulsing she felt had calmed her anxiety so many times, that even though he never came to see her, it was like she had a part of him. But suddenly, it wasn't enough.

    How dare he make her promise to never leave him, only for him to leave first. Is that how it was supposed to work? Maybe she'd have bought that before and let it go, but there was too much between them now. He had been her best friend and her first kiss. He'd seemed to want her as she was, but just as she was finally able to give herself to him, he dropped her. It hurt so much! Artemis had said 'Together' like it meant something, but it didn't at all, did it? Was he done with her? Then he could at least release her to her face. Men she had lesser opinions of had at least been able to do that. Dr. Raelin had no problems telling her he was done with her. Sivvy wanted that finality. It was all she'd ever known.

    "You made me promise," she said coldly as soon as she stepped out of the elevator into his lounge, perhaps to herself or perhaps just on the strong assumption that he was there. And he was. As soon as she laid eyes on him, she chucked the leather bracelet at him so she'd never be tempted to take comfort in him again. "You made me promise to never leave you. Why?"

    I had to fall to lose it all, but in the end it doesn't even matter
    Artemis Dagger


    In all his misery, his guilt and his self-pity, regret would continue to make frugal attempts to seep back into his heart. God he missed her, he wanted to see her, to replace those images of her with healthy, safe ones. But he knew if he saw her then letting go would become so much harder. No, it was better this way, he and Sivvy could go their separate ways before they became even more attached. He could handle the heartbreak, he had before, anything was better than putting her at any further risk.

    His idle stare at his dull ceiling would have perhaps remained undisturbed for much longer, he wasn't hungry, the empty takeaway boxes that littered his coffee table evidence as to that. His hair recently dried from an excessively long shower, during which he had crouched on the cool tile until the water lost its heat, so long that his fingers and toes had become numb. He was dressed in a baggy plain black t-shirt and sweatpants, not bothering with socks or even boxers for that matter because what was the point... He wouldn't be going anywhere for a while, this much he knew.

    He heard her before he say her, the boom of the door several floors down as it was kicked in. He sat up suddenly, whipping his head around to the window. Jumping to his feet, he ran over to it, peering downward, but it was no good, she had already entered the building. He could smell her sweet aroma, already making him weak in the knees. He stared at the window, he could easily smash through it and escape out of the window. He'd hurt himself but with healing like his, it would feel like nothing compared to the hurt he was about to feel. Still hearing the hum of the elevator, knowing she was coming left him frozen. Fuck, Art, be a man and face her at least. He told himself bitterly, eyes closed, he would turn, facing toward the elevator - hearing the familiar ding as the doors opened.

    His eyes opened, taking in the sight of her, and taking in a sharp breathe. She was alive. She was whole. She was here. His chest felt tight at the cold words he greeted him with, eying him with a pained gaze. His body burned to embrace her, to feel her touch, the warmth of her skin as blood pumped through her, reminding him she was alive. He would reach up, catching the bracelet midair, turning his palm over to look at it. He still had hers on, he hadn't taken it off, not even in the shower, not even to sleep. He never took it off. He should have.

    His fingers clenched over the bracelet, as he reminded himself why he had done this. This wasn't about him, about what he wanted. It was about keeping her safe.

    "Because I was naive." He turned from her, avoiding the gaze of those carmine eyes. "I'm no good Sivvy. I forgot that for a while... but I've remembered now, I'm not a good guy. And you... shouldn't be here, you should leave. Go home, you'll be better for it." Every word he spoke was like a knife in his own heart, a part of him roared in fury, clawing at the surface, not wanting to let her go. He had to silence it, bury it deep and lock it away.

    Usually, Sivvy would have just done as she was told. She was an obedient clone...or used to be. But now, as she stood staring at him and expecting an explanation, the man before her wasn't giving her one and she wasn't having it. Artemis wouldn't even look at her, and it was making her angrier. Her cold stare was shifting into something similar to disgusted disbelief. "At least look at me when you're getting rid of me. Much worse men than you have been able to look me in the eye when they do it," she snapped, even if her voice was still quiet. For someone as emotionless as she usually was, any emotion registering on her face or in her voice seemed powerful.

    Before he could answer, though, she spoke again with eyes starting to gloss. "Actually, before you do that, just explain to me how my failure reflects on you at all, other than the fact that the one time I really needed you, you weren't there?" she asked sharply, crossing her arms over her chest as if trying to keep herself from flying apart. It was clear she'd left Dies Irae in a hurry. Instead of her usual pretty outfits, she had a simple black crop top, a short red skirt on, and seemed to have forgotten her shoes entirely. While her injuries were mostly healed, she did still have places where her skin was darkened with bruises and some fresh, darker scars joined her extensive collection of old ones. Her hair wasn't even pulled into pigtails, instead it was hanging loose and framing her angry face. Her chest heaved slightly beneath her arms, betraying her arms and how upset she really was. It was only getting worse the longer she looked at him, trying to figure out why, despite how furious she was and how deeply he was hurting her, she still wanted to run to him and bury her face in his chest. It didn't make sense. The last thing she should want now was his touch.

    His eyes would close as she countered him, her words cutting deep. He deserved that, he couldn't deny it. Still, he didn't need to look at her, even her voice alone was enough to weaken him, to pull at the strings of his heart, never so much had he wanted to undo it. To grovel at the feet of a woman and admit his mistake, but he couldn't do that. No, he needed her to hate him, it would make their separation easier for her.

    She went on to tear through him further, her tone sharp and accusatory. His fists would clench at his side, anger rising, not at her but at the frustration caused by the situation at hand. If it wasn't for his name, his family, his job, then things could have been different for them. All of it, all of it was out of his control and because of it he had to let go of the last person he could bear to lose. The anger building within him only fueled by the fact that she was somehow blaming herself for this.

    "Your failure? You think this is your fault?" He scoffed gruffly, moving away from the window and toward his coffee table, still avoiding her gaze. He would reach down and pour himself a drink. Knocking it back before wiping his mouth, "Maybe you should consider, that I am worse than those men."

    "Oh yeah, so much worse," Sivvy huffed, a little bit of sarcasm in play now. She'd never really understood it until this moment. Sometimes it was the better alternative to outright screaming.

    "You must be misunderstanding most of the men I've encountered. Dr. Raelin sent me on every job that paid, no matter what it was. He lent me out like a gun. I was nothing more than a tool or a doll. When I wasn't out killing someone that threatened a sweaty rich man, I was in that rich man's bed staring at the ceiling waiting for it to be over, but it was never over," she countered him, tightening her arms, now to keep them still. She'd never enjoyed her work back then, she hadn't been allowed to enjoy anything, but there was a time where she didn't know it should bother her. It bothered her now. "If I did a good enough job, maybe when I went back to the lab I'd be allowed to read in peace for a little bit, but more often than not Dr. Raelin had a new procedure to try and would either cut me open while I was awake. Or, worse, he'd take out his frustrations by doing worse things to me than those rich men. Explain to me how you are worse than them," Sivvy demanded, her scowl deepening. Other than whatever this was right now, Artemis had never hurt her. While she had to admit that this felt worse than anything her abusive creator had done to her, she recognized that these were two completely different types of pain. She'd only felt a little bit of this type of pain before, and that was when she was trying to figure out why the man who, as she'd read, should have been her father treated her so poorly.

    Sivvy felt like she was talking more than she ever had in her life, yet the words kept tumbling out, raw but honest. "You've never used my body so entirely as them. You didn't use me as a weapon for personal gain and you always asked before you touched me. You made me think you wanted me to grow, learn what I like, make my own decisions. So yes, I think it's my fault!" Now her voice was rising despite herself. The man she thought she knew was contradicting her view of him, trying to become all those men from before. If he was really like them after all they'd been through, she felt like she'd break. "How could it be anything but? The moment I lost a battle with someone who's a warlord now, you suddenly had this epiphany that you aren't good and just disappeared from my life?! What, were you playing the long game, waiting to take advantage of me only to realize I'm not as strong and useful as you thought? It wouldn't be the first time," she tried to reason, unmoving but her eyes trained on him.

    "Look at me, Artemis!"

    The tale she told, the picture she painted, it was like a horror unfolding before his eyes. Things he didn't want to hear, his eyes drew close, keeping his breathing steady. Hearing this, the truth of the suffering she had endured, it hurt, it enraged him. He wanted to hunt every one of them down and burn them alive, to make them suffer for what they had put her through. He couldn't speak, he had no words to answer her with. No, he wasn't like those men. But he was still no good for her, they were better men than him. And yet even now, despite what he'd done, she was still blaming herself. She needed to stop blaming herself. This wasn't her fault, why could she not see this? He was trying to stay cool, to not let his emotions take over. He shouldn't have hidden here, he should've picked somewhere she didn't know about. Somewhere she wouldn't have found him. If he had then maybe, maybe, he wouldn't have to do this right now.

    "Look at me, Artemis!"

    His eyes would open, darting over to her. Meeting her gaze, any semblance of calm he had gone, the glass he held would shatter against the opposing wall and within moments he was in her space. "You think you know me Siv, you think because you've faced worse than me that I'm a good guy. You know nothing about me, about my life. What you think I saw that photo of you and lost interest. Do you think I'm so fucking shallow that I would give a shit about whether you can fight a warlord or not? When I say I'm not good, it's because I'm no fucking good." His fingers found their way to her arms, gripping her tightly, desperate in his attempts to get through to her. His words coming out at her in a sharp growl. "I'm toxic Siv. With me, there won't be a happy ever after, because this story, is a fucking tragedy." He would let her go, thrusting her back slightly to recreate some distance between them, talking at her through gritted teeth. "You. Should. Leave."

    Most people would have taken his actions much differently, being offended or scared or even more hurt, but the pinkette only flared more intensely. People had laid hands on her much worse than this. This was nothing. She thought him finally looking at her would bring some sort of satisfaction or closure, but it didn't. Artemis could bear down on her, grab her, push her back a little, and though she stupidly reveled in the physical contact, she could only feel her stubborn rage rise. He was being so infuriating! Why was he so insistent on this? What had changed? Sivvy only took a single step back before undoing his attempt to create distance and getting right back in his face.

    Locking her intense carmine eyes on his wine-hued ones, she grabbed the front of his shirt and balled it in her fist, yanking him close. "I don't care if you're good!" she shouted back at him, "What even is good?! All I know is that you were kind and I was comfortable with you. I know that you made me want to be with you, only to now tell me to leave." Sivvy was losing her temper. Her fist released his shirt but remained balled and pounded on his chest instead. It was clear she didn't want to hurt him even though she was enraged because she didn't put any strength in it. "My whole life is a tragedy! Who cares! Does it not matter that I chose this? Does it matter that I don't want to leave?" she asked, wanting desperately to understand. Artemis seemed to want her to learn to want things, but as soon as she did, he just gave her whiplash. "I'll only leave once you explain to me why you think you're not good and why you're throwing me away! Explain to me what I'm not understanding here!"

    Artemis Dagger


    Staying in control, not giving in was so incredibly hard right now. She was so close, and even in her rage, as she shouted in her face. He wanted her so bad, he wanted to slam her against the closest wall and lose himself in her. Instead, he stared down at her, a hard frown across his brow as he looked down at her, hearing her defiance. Still, she fought him, saying all the things that both elated and terrified him. Not bothering to stop her as she pounded his fists against him, she could've hurt him more and he wouldn't have stopped her. He would take it, it if helped her feel better.

    As she offered him an out, he would pause, expression softening. "I... I can't tell you... at least not all of it." He sighed, raising a hand to run his fingers through his hair, sweeping it back from his face. He moved a few paces to the right, leaning against the pillar set between his living room and kitchen. he would allow his body to slide down, burying his head in his hands.

    "There are things I can't tell you because I am bound not to speak of them." His voice was calmer now, softer as he tried to find a way to explain himself to her. "I am a dangerous person Siv. Much more dangerous than I've let you believe, there are things that are beyond my control. This week, there were some things that happened to me and... it reminded me of the life I thought I escape. The life I thought I could protect you from." He looked up at her, "I'm not throwing you away Siv... I'm sparing you."

    Sivvy simply listened, still expecting more of an explanation than she received. He was calmer, but the things he was saying just...didn't make sense. Did he not know who she was? Perhaps she had an inflated sense of self since becoming a guild master, because though her confidence and ego were certainly bruised and bleeding, she still had no problem taking care of herself before now. "I don't need your protection or your sparing, Artemis," she spat, not as calm as he was. She knelt down near him to be on his level, though she did give him some space. It was also clear she wasn't leaving until she had an answer that satisfied her.

    Perhaps someone who was more accustomed to dancing around truths and sifting through the vague muck would draw conclusions, but the clone was too literal. She might even be a little dense. Nothing he'd said sounded like anything worth severing their bond. Forming bonds was new and hard for her. She'd never lost one before and just didn't know how to let it go without a definitive reason. "I'm a dangerous person, too. What's your point? I killed a lot before I joined Dies Irae, and killing people is my job now. I have a dangerous life with people trying their best to kill me every day. That has nothing to do with you," she reminded him, unsure what he was getting at. He knew how dangerous she was. He'd seen her fight. She'd seen him fight and didn't feel any negative feelings about it. "What happened to you that caused this? Do you need help getting out of it? Please, be clear with me. Either let me help fix it or accept that you're throwing me away."

    He was trying to calm down, to talk this out rationally, but as she snapped at him it was hard to maintain this level of collectedness. She was being so stubborn, fighting him at every turn.  "You say this because you don't-" He began, stopping himself short as he felt the heat rise in his tone. Rolling his head back against the wall and closing his eyes, she was infuriating. Beautiful, Sexy and fucking mind-blowingly infuriating.

    He rocked his head side to side as she talked about her own experience is killing, about her job. Her job where she hunted dark mages, mages like him, another complication in this oh so twisted net of theirs. His anger rising more and more, how had it come to this. They were so good, they were so happy. In such a short time everything they built had all come tumbling down, leaving a chaotic mess in its wake. As she once again implied that he was throwing her away, his composure would once again shatter. He would reach out, grabbing her wrist and yanking him toward her roughly.

    "Stop saying that." His words coming out at a snarl."You think it's as simple as that? Because killing comes so easy to you, and that makes it okay, alright. Kill me then." He told her, guiding her hand to his throat. He would use his fingers to wrap her palms around his jugular, holding her there to stop her from trying to pull away. "Kill me, leave and then go live your life without me. Knowing that you did that... could you picture that Siv? Know what it's like that you took the person you loved and broke them. Because I do... I broke someone... and I couldn't fix her. And I can't... have that happen to you."

    A year ago, she probably wouldn't have had to think about it. She was sure that she'd have felt nothing by taking his life. She'd taken countless lives from people who didn't deserve to die, and even more from people who did. His whole point about how she'd feel after killing someone she knew would have fallen flat before now because she knew she'd have done so unquestioningly and without remorse as long as she'd been ordered to do so. She never killed on her own otherwise. But, as he yanked her wrist, coiled her hand around his throat, and painted his picture-- one she very much wanted to disagree with-- a lump formed in her own.

    "I can't..."

    The already glossy carmine eyes started to water, because while she knew she could kill him in theory, in practice it'd be impossible. Her muscles felt like concrete just thinking about it. Sivvy attempted to pull her hand away, but his grip prevented it and she quickly resigned. Whether they were angry tears, sad tears, or a bit of both, they started to break free of her lower lids and streak her cheeks. The thought of losing him-- which she was actively doing right now-- was enough to hurt so deeply that she hardly knew how to deal with it. It was all very overwhelming for someone with the smallest understanding of emotions. The thought of him dying was even worse and caused her anger to falter into something more like despair.

    All of this due to the girl before her. She was curious about her since this was the first she'd heard of her, but also this wasn't the time. Maybe Sivvy was too selfish, but she was more concerned about what was happening in the present than what had already happened. "I'm sorry you broke her, Artemis. It seems like she broke you, too. But I'm not her. You can't break me," she hoarsely whispered around the tightness in her throat. "I don't see how pushing me away will fix anything. I don't understand the logic, Artemis." Sivvy shook her head, never feeling so lost in her life. Granted, her general approach to things was very simple. Very black and white. This was very complicated and gray and nonsensical. No book could have ever prepared her for this scenario. It scared her that she couldn't make sense of it. "Even if you did break me, I'd just regenerate. I can fix myself. No one can decommission me except Dr. Raelin. If I could die...Thana would have killed me and I wouldn't be here to argue with you. By your logic, would you have felt better if Thana had killed me just so you weren't the one responsible for it?" she asked, desperately trying to wrap her brain around the point he was making.

    He hated that it had come this far, to the point where the last person he ever wanted to her had been reduced to tears by his actions. To have to unveil a skeleton from his closet of horrors, one of his most painful secrets. He held her there, his fingers trembling as they gripped hers, pushing them against his throat. His own eyes would gloss over, but he would fight the urge to become undone before her. Pulling it back so that he could maintain some semblance of composure over his emotions. It had been bad enough that he had let Percy see that side of him, he couldn't let himself go like that in front of Siv. He just couldn't.

    At her words, he met her gaze, grip easing slightly as he took in what she was saying. She... couldn't die? He took a moment to consider what she was saying, Sivvy would never lie to him. But still, being unable to die, was that even possible? Doubts aside, it did explain how she had returned to him in one piece, despite what the picture had depicted to him that day. He swallowed, pondering her question.

    "No..." He began, before looking down, "Maybe... I don't know." It sounded wrong, selfish, but then again he was a selfish person wasn't he? "I don't know what I'm supposed to fucking do Siv... If you leave, we'll be broken but at least you'll have a chance at a decent life... but with me you'd be throwing that all away... and then even if you can't die... that might not stop them. Or him. Death isn't the only way to end a life Siv."

    The pinkette lightly winced when he spoke again. She couldn't help but feel an extra twinge of pain when Artemis partially agreed that Thana killing her might have been better. Sivvy was a little sensitive about all things Thana anyway, so it hit her funny that it could even be considered a solution to his problem. Crying was such a new thing for her, she couldn't understand how the tears could form and fall faster than they had been just a moment ago. Still, she wouldn't break down into sobs, despite feeling them swelling in her chest. The tears could just silently fall and drip off her chin onto her skirt and she'd continue to ignore them.

    Though her anger was finally faltering, she tried to use it to keep her voice strong and her jaw set. "I can't see my life being very decent without you. You were my choice. You were the best part..." she said quietly, her gaze saddening though remaining riddled with frustration. "Everyone keeps insisting that I get to make my own life decisions now, yet when I try... Do you get to decide what happens to me, to us, by yourself? Do I not get any say again?" she asked, feeling so very confused and hopeless. For someone to have so much power, she felt powerless again as if no matter what she wanted or didn't want out of life, she could do nothing about it. Maybe Dr. Raelin was right. Having emotions and desires were just counterproductive. "Who is 'them'? 'Him'? Whatever it is, can't we face it together?" Sivvy wanted to know, her fingers gently brushing against where they were held against his skin.

    It was getting increasingly difficult for him to hold her this way, having her so close, even in the sadness and anger shared at this moment he longed for her. It took all his restraint not to embrace her, to kiss away the tears and make her forget about the pain. At the very least he would let go of her hands, allowing her to release his throat should she choose to. Crossing his arms over his knees and resting them there.

    "It's not that I don't want you to make your own choice... I just, don't want you to do something you'll regret. I can't promise that I can make you happy Siv..." Despite his pushing, in truth, it was her that had to choose. Choose to leave, and be rid of him for good. Because if the ache he felt told him anything it was that if he caved, if he let himself have her now... then he'd never let go.

    "My family... the demon I play host to." He explained with a sigh, "They don't want us to be together and they have power Siv. The influence they have is... tremendous and they won't take no for an answer. To fight them on any decision... it's not a fight you take lightly. I've tried fighting them before, my whole life... and they are still winning." He said, his tired tone a reflection of years and years of experience. "And the demon... you met him. I can't control him, sometimes... he takes over." One of his hands would move over his face, hiding the shame he felt. "When I saw... those messages... those pictures of you... I lost control. He took my body and... h-he..." He would choke slightly, eyes squeezing shut and taking a series of short sharp breaths as he struggled to continue.

    The concept of family was completely lost on Sivvy, so that issue could wait for later when he could explain it better. "You haven't had me to help you fight before," she reminded him. There was literally nothing he could say about his family, their power, or tactics that would deter her. Siv never backed down, and that only intensified now that this was something she wanted. More pressing, though, was what he said about the demon. "Zaebros?" Sivvy asked with a blink of surprise, this information new to her. She wasn't under the impression that Artemis had lacked control or that he was a problem, but he seemed more like Mars than she realized. "Pictures?" she whispered next, then remembered. Thana had her phone for a little bit. Eyes widening, she took in Artemis's state with the perspective that while he hadn't come to see her, he had seen the shape she was in at its worst. And it upset him so badly that it had caused something terrible.

    Pulling at his legs to uncurl them, Sivvy crawled into his lap so she could be directly facing him. "I'm sorry," she said, her voice tense. Reaching up to wrap her fingers around the hand he had pressed to his face, she tried to pull it down while her other hand cupped his jaw. "It's okay, Artemis..." she whispered, looking him over and trying to be comforting. It wasn't her forte. "Did he hurt you?" she asked, feeling a different, more protective type of anger. She wasn't sure how to fight a demon inside of someone, but she'd figure it out. Sivvy would fight the world for Artemis if she had to. He was her one choice.

    It was hard not to smile at that, even now. Hearing her fighting spirit, of course, she felt that way. She had never had to face the sheer brutality that was the Dagger family, but she would learn. If she stuck around that is. It wasn't a suffering that he wished for her, then again, the thought of having someone on his side other than his siblings. Someone to back his corner and clean the wounds they left in their way. It was a sweet notion. But wasn't that selfish? To want such a thing for himself?

    As he divulged the truth about what had happened to him this week, Morte's control of his body. He couldn't speak for a moment, he could only nod at her questions. Remembering the alias Morte had forced him to give her, he could have corrected her but there was no point. It wasn't relevant information, and frankly, he didn't need to bait Morte right now by defying him. He wanted, no, need, the demon to stay out of this.

    As she pulled at his legs, he would give, unable to refuse her. Hand-pulled from his face to meet his gaze with glassy eyes, full of pain and strife of fundamental proportions. Just the proximity of her, the feel of her body upon his, his walls were crumbling quickly as his hands found her waist. He needed this so badly, having her close to him, holding her though. Just this small dose of closeness was enough to set a fire of want in him, burning for her, for more. "Not me..." He whispered.

    He inhaled deeply, trying to compose himself. He would look down at her arms, taking in the marks and scars that lingered on her skin. His hands would guide her closer so that he could lean in and rest his head against her shoulder, face buried into her neck. "Siv..." He whispered softly against her skin, "When did you become so damn stubborn."

    So Zaebros hadn't hurt him, but rather someone else. That was the only conclusion, but while Sivvy should have been more concerned given her position, she didn't care. Artemis wasn't hurt, not physically. Emotionally...well, even she could see that he was suffering. She could relate to that now, if only just in the last week. Being able to be empathetic, no matter how new and unfamiliar, twisted her insides. Feeling for someone else on top of her own turmoil... it was a lot. But she was strong. She was strong and he seemed to be backing down from trying to get rid of her. Sivvy wasn't sure if she'd won and they could stay together, but she'd take this. They could comfort each other right now.

    A small smile appeared on her lips at his comment, sighing as his hands finally came at her with gentleness instead of pain and anger. She pressed her cheek into the top of his head. "At some point after meeting you," she answered, wrapping her arms around his shoulders and pulling him even closer. As much as she was holding him for his sake, it was a little selfish as well. This was what she'd wanted. She'd needed this. The relief flooded her, whether it was warranted or not, and only fueled the tears already falling. "I don't break promises. Ever," she spoke, voice warm. She wanted more of him. Her hands twisted in the fabric of his shoulders, pressing her fingers into his skin as if it would make them as close as she craved. Even though they'd just been arguing, the heat of her anger remained just as heat, transforming into the desire that started this complicated relationship to start with. "I'm not leaving, Artemis. I want you too much."

    He smiled against the crook of her neck, the feel of pulling him closer. His own hands defied him by snaking down her waist, trailing softly down her hips. Touching her was everything, he wanted to keep exploring, to examine every inch of her. His resolve was all but gone, enveloped by everything that was Sivvy. The feel of her lithe frame against his, the sweet aroma of her skin intoxicating him completely, the warm words she spoke to him. He would bring his face up to hers, taking in the sight of her teary expression. A picture of perfection.

    He pressed his forehead against hers, he wanted so badly to kiss her. But it didn't feel right to steal a moment with her lips right now. Her words sent a euphoric rush through him, he groaned softly in a different kind of frustration. "Siv... I want you more than I've wanted anything in my life." He whispered to her hoarsely, a firm tug on her hips guiding her closer to him. What did it matter now anyway? She wasn't going to take no for an answer, she refused to be without him.

    He needed to be close to her, and for everything she gave, he gladly took. Ultimately consumed by her, and hungry for more. "I've wanted you from the moment I laid eyes on you, and I've been holding back ever since. I want to make you mine in every way possible... but you..." His nose brushed hers, their faces so close he could make out every detail in her carmine eyes. "You had me from the start. I was yours then... and I'm yours now."

    His words made her smile some more and she wished he'd kept them in mind before this whole mess happened. Fortunately, Sivvy wasn't one to keep grudges or play the 'coulda, shoulda, woulda' game. It was what it was. There were things that still needed to be worked out, but her mind had already moved on simply because of how he'd gripped her hips. "I know," she shamelessly said, though her voice more airy than before. Her gaze was locked with his, truly appreciating their depth for the first time. "Mine," Sivvy mouthed, toying with the word and the sentiment it held. He was hers. She was possessive.

    Artemis had made no mystery of his immediate attraction to her. Sivvy had made no mystery of being aware of it. What she wasn't aware of was exactly when she started to feel the same way about him. Was it when she kissed him at the fake wedding? It didn't matter. Those feelings were just drops in a dry bucket compared to the tidal wave crashing into her right now. She'd read about sexual tension and passion, but it had never experienced it. For a moment she wanted to analyze it to try make sense of it, but then her brain just shut it down. "I've never felt this before," the clone admitted, honest as ever. Their noses bumping sent a shiver through her. She kept shifting her hips on his lap. Heat was rising to her cheeks, not from embarrassment, but from something else. Her heart rate increased, and with each breath, she caught his scent that was so very close. It was like severe hunger pains, but not for food. For him. So strong that she could hardly keep still.

    Unlike Artemis, Sivvy wasn't used to or keen to practice restraint. "I can't hold back," she warned only a split second before her body leaned in and she closed the small distance between their faces. Like before, her kiss was firm. Decisive. Unlike before, it was needy. Fervent. Surprisingly hot-blooded for someone normally so cold and calculated, and even a little clumsy as it lingered due to inexperience. The other physical things she found herself wanting for the first time-- things she was normally repulsed by due to their transactional obligation-- were at least familiar. She had skill in those areas. Artemis was the only one to ever kiss her, though. Pulling away after a few seconds, a little afraid of not knowing if she was doing it right, she fixed her fiery gaze on him once more. If he wanted her to kiss him a certain way, he'd have to teach her. And if he wanted to escape, he'd missed his chance.

    Sliding her hands slowly from his shoulders down his chest, she lingered close to his lips but didn't connect it again. Instead, she spoke, voice sultry, "You can have me. Make me yours, Artemis."

    Mine.

    A single word yet so much meaning to it, a declaration that he could not refute. He still felt uncertain, the anxious wariness of what this would lead to and whether or not he could protect her from it. But then, Sivvy was strong and she said it herself, she couldn't die. The part of him that worried was silenced by his desire to be with her, perched on his lap was the promise of happiness. But such a promise felt too good to be true, surely it had to be a trap. Choosing her, knowing all the risks, how could it be the right choice? Yet feeling her against him, her touch, her soft words, nothing felt more right.

    The moment her lips touched his, all of those worries melted away, burned away by the heat of their kiss. He would meet her with fervent need, his mouth moving against hers with the remnants of frustration and desire that could only be reserved for her. This wasn't like the kisses they had shared before, the ones tempered by reservations of not wanting to move too fast. The other kisses, they had been mere teasings of the red-headed male's capabilities. But now, with his emotions raw and his composure spent, he, as she had so accurately put it, couldn't hold back either. Not now. Not anymore.

    As she pulled away for a moment, whispering her permission to claim her. His ruby eyes would meet hers, the primal glimmer of heat in his gaze. He would wrap an arm around her, using his free arm to push back off of the pillar, he would rise to his feet. Returning his spare hand to her thigh to manouver her legs around his waist. He would carry her around the pillar, through the archway that led to his kitchen. His mouth finding hers once more, he would place her down on the counter. "I'm sorry..." He whispered against her lips, repeating his apology softly between kisses. It wasn't enough that they were reconciling in this manner, he had made a wound and he knew it. If he was just going to give in like this, then he should have just visited her. But it was, what it was, their seperation, her going so far as to come and find him. It was a reminder of just how deeply they had fallen into this, had the roles been reversed, he'd have done the same and he knew it.

    All he could do was show her the depth of his words, he said he wanted her, but just how much did he want her. He aspired not only to have her, but to make her feel her worth as he proceeded to worship her body in every way he knew how. He would trail his kisses down from her lips, trailing down her neck as he pulled back. He would guide her back gently as he lifted one of her legs with his hand, kneeling down somewhat as he rested her leg over his shoulder. Moving from her neck to her knee as he began to kiss the inner working of her right leg, trailing up her thigh at a teasing pace. He would stop, looking up at her, and taking in the sight of the exquisite woman before him. Never before had he witnessed such a breathtaking sight, just how did he get so lucky?

    His eyes meeting hers, "Mine." He would growl, as he continued the path up her thigh, determined to claim her in every way possible.
