Witch's Desire

Trifecta: Week Seventy-Four
Congratulations to the Weekend winners!

I'm continuing the story of the witch and the demon.  It's a prologue of sorts for my Chaos in Progress.
Now on to the prompt...

a : a state of being beyond reason and self-control
b archaic : swoon
: a state of overwhelming emotion; especially : rapturous delight

Lillian congratulated herself on accomplishing the spell banish Aslozoth.  When Lillian had first called her up, she'd been pleased to see a feminine demon.  She'd thought that would make the control easier.  

Far from it.  Aslozoth had an agenda all her own.  It hadn't taken long for her to exert control over Lillian.  It was a subtle seduction, leaving Lillian breathless in the power of the magic she was shown.  Each new spell required levels of ecstasy she had never thought she could attain.  Each lesson accompanied by a touch, caress, stroke, evoking physical ecstasy, almost an addiction.

Yet, Lillian was satisfied.  Until she spied the sword.  The demon's blade that could buy her the allegiance of the chief of Clan MacClarren, the strongest clan on the moors.  An allegiance to fulfill a different lust.  Power over a nation.

Aslozoth's laugh at her plan was a cruel noise in her ears.  

A witch of lesser will would have ducked her head and continued to be the demon's pet.  

A witch of lesser will would never think to steal a demon's blade.

Lillian had a will of iron as hard as the sword she coveted.



  1. I hope she succeeds. She should be careful though!

    1. She may succeed, but not with the outcome she hopes for...

  2. I don't know much about sword stealing, but something tells me it's not going to be easy. Associating with demons is risky enough, but taking her sword? I have a feeling that's where the story will get tense!

    1. Lillian is resourceful. And determined to have her way. The story takes a turn very soon.

  3. Is this a continued/continuing story? The story and characters seem so well developed already! Great story.

    1. the Lillian stories are parts of my larger, over reaching, gets crazier every day, Chaos in Progress.

  4. A great instalment. I like the repetition of 'lesser will'. Thanks for linking up!

  5. What a cool story. I don't really read fantasy but I love this! :)
