Josh stood on the veranda by its railing, Justin's arms around him.
Lance walked up the steps of the veranda, Finn and Alain following him.
"We've searched everywhere, Josh. The house and the grounds. Lucas is nowhere to be found." Lance said, now standing at Josh's side.
"I don't think he wants to be found, Lance."
Everyone's eyes stared towards Colton, the young man seated with Jonathan and Haras, Hemi and Enrique seated beside them on another couch.
"What do you mean, Colton?" Emerson said, he and Grayson walking out of the mansion, both nodding their head no towards Josh.
Colton rose from his seat, the young walking up to Josh, Justin and Lance.
"I don't feel his presence, guys. Lucas is lost to the real world and to the magic. He's either really disappeared, or he's hidden himself behind magic. I do feel his love though. It's still etched within the magic. He's alive, just on a voyage. To where, I have no idea." Colton said, Josh's arms going around him.
"I feel his love as well, Colt. He's indeed alive. I just wish he would have told us where he was going."
Colton nodded, his blue eyes looking towards Grayson, the lawyer having sat down beside his Gabriel, their arms entwining.
Colton's eyes looked towards Hemi, the Egyptian staring at the young man.
"Do you have any idea where that ebony box could have taken our Lucas, Hemidon?" Colton said, the young man staring at him.
"As I stated to Lucas--as we both warned him--that box is evil." Hemi said, his face and body changing again, Priscilla Carlisle now staring at him.
"Lucas said it wasn't, Priscilla." Colton said, his eyes looking around at everyone.
"I am agreeing with Lucas. I felt no evil surround it or him, when he vanished. I actually felt something surprising." Colton said, Josh hugging him close.
"What did you feel, Colt?" Finn said, the young man seeing the worry on Lucas' best friend's face.
"I felt a doorway. I actually thought I'd seen it within the light." Colton said, looking into Josh's blue pools.
"A doorway, Colt?"
"Yes, Papa. I thought I saw Lucas walk through it. His head turned and...?"
"And what, Colt?"
Everyone stared at the young man, Colton staring at Prisicilla.
"His eyes were their violet hue as always. But
"What about his face, Colt?" Jonathan said, Colton looking at his soulmate.
"It...I'm not sure...but it wasn't his."
Everyone looked surprised, Josh staring into Colton's blue pools.
"You mean he didn't look like himself?" Josh said, Colton kissing his cheek.
"I saw his familiar love and magic in his eyes.
It was him. I just don't think he was all of himself. I'm just not sure. It
happened so fast. The magic was so intense."
"You felt the box's magic?" Francesca said, Colton nodding.
"Yes, Francesca. It was a great magic. Not as powerful as Lucas' but great nonetheless. And it wasn't evil possessed, of that I'm sure." Colton said, Priscilla staring at him.
"That can't be possible, young man. My father
told me often of that box's evil. I was never allowed to go near it." She
said, Colton staring at her.
"Why were you so surprised that Grayson had found it?" The young man said, Priscilla's eyes showing a soft confusion.
"Father had told me that he'd sent it back into the void. With the last strength of his magic he said he'd returned it to evil's embrace." The woman said, Enrique staring at his soulmate's changed self.
Grayson rose from his seat, the lawyer walking up to the woman, Priscilla staring at him.
"I believe your father in essence told you the
truth in partial reasoning. That box was at one time in evil's possession. Along
with other gifts of magic and love, and goodness."
Colton stared at the older man.
"The treasure room! The box was from that room of goodness! And Lucas knew it!" He said, everyone showing surprise, Grayson smiling at the young man.
"Indeed, my young intelligent friend. All four of use held the box in our hands. We all felt a flowing goodness coming from it. We felt it in our souls. And Lucas in his shrewdness told myself that we should touch it as little as possible. I think he knew we'd find it there. And that your father wouldn't be found there himself."
Priscilla's eyes showed more confusion.
"Father always said it was evil. Why would he lie to me? Why would he lie about sending it back?" She said, Colton moving from Josh's arms, standing in front of the woman.
"To hide it for him. I think your father sensed that Lucas would need it further down the path. That someone would need it to find the truth. Lucas said himself that it was the heart of the truth."
"I buried my father, Colton. I laid him in the tomb myself. How can he not be resting there?"
Colton smiled, leaning forward and gently kissing her cheek.
"How can you or Almira not be resting for eternity in your own tombs?" Colton said, Priscilla staring at the young man.
"My father didn't possess that kind of magic, Colton. He was a mortal, of no residual magic."
"I am a mortal, Priscilla. And I have magic." Colton said, Priscilla's eyes showing soft tears.
"Why do I sense I've been lied to by him?"
"I don't think he lied to you, Priscilla. I sensed he knew the greater magic in you. He kept his own magic hidden from you out of love."
"I told him everything. Of who I once was, of the path I was on. His love for me never changed. He loved me as the daughter he was given."
"Your heart shows his love and goodness. And his magic sensed your magic."
The woman softly nodded, the truth now s howing in her eyes.
"My father was love He showed it always. I now sense his love for me was total. He wanted to shield me from some truth. I will now and always love him." She said, the young woman moving, walking up to the veranda's railing, staring out at the lake before her.
"I will find him. I will search this earth and the void to find his love again. And to find the truth."
Colton walked up to her, his hand going to her shoulder.
"I don't think you have a long voyage ahead of you." He said, Josh staring at the young man.
"What do you mean, Colt?"
The young man smiled, staring at Priscilla.
"Lucas has found your father, Priscilla. I think he's now walking his own life. I think the man I saw in the whiteness was your father, Dathan Carlisle."
Priscilla looked shocked, staring at the young man.
"His eyes were violet, weren't they?"
She nodded, staring towards Francesca and Savannah.
"His eyes were the heritage of all our souls. His were the first of magic and truth."
Colton smiled, nodding his head.
"And I think he's the truth himself. Or part of it. I think Lucas has walking into another man's life. And he's searching for the truth of his own soul."
Lucas' violet pools opened, staring into two green pools, Archer smiling at him.
The two were still wrapped in each other's arms, the young man kissing Lucas' forehead.
"I feel your awkwardness, Dathan. I will not take from you that which you give to another. I sense perhaps more than one."
Lucas softly blushed, the young man smiling at him.
"I feel your heart of love, Dathan. It is immense. Is there any love in there for me?" He said, his green pools lowering.
Lucas' hand went to the young man's shoulder, his head raising, staring into Lucas' violet pools.
"My heart gives love to all, Archer. I feel the
goodness in your soul and heart. I'm just not sure if I could give you all you
seek. You have read my soul. I hold a deep love for someone else."
The young man smiled, staring at Lucas.
"I envy them their happiness."
Lucas smiled, the young man staring at him.
"You are so beautiful, Dathan. I feel the greatness of your beautiful soul. And I sense the magic.
Lucas looked surprised, the young man smiling.
"You sense our own magic, don't you?"
Lucas nodded, the young man smiling more.
"My father always said that my magic was in my
love. I hope you see that as well."
Lucas smiled, staring at him.
"The package is nothing to not love."
Archer laughed, smiling at Lucas.
"It's yours if you so wish."
Lucas smiled, staring at the man's beauty.
"I think your friendship and love will be even more beautiful."
The young man smiled, staring at him.
"I'll work on you seeking all of it."
Lucas smiled, staring at him.
"You are very forward and direct, Archer. I think your bow's always loaded."
The man grinned, then laughed, Lucas smiling at him.
"I have some amazing weapons."
Lucas laughed, splashing him with water, the
young man splashing back.
The two relaxed, talking and laughing together, Lucas feeling the man's friendship, and yes, his yearning love.
The two swam for a half hour, Archer seeing the young servant Benny walking towards them, the servant carrying fresh clothes folded in his arms.
Lucas took in the young man's smooth features, taking the servant to be in his early twenties, slim and smooth, wearing a light tunic and dungarees.
"Archer, your father sent me out with fresh clothing for you and your guest." The young man said, smiling at Archer, his blue eyes scanning Lucas' half showing physique.
"Thank you, Benny. My friend's clothing are
weather worn. Take them into the house and give them to Molly. If they're
washable have her launder them." The young man said, the servant smiling at him,
bowing his head, moving over to Lucas' clothing, Lucas yelling to him.
"Wait, young man!"
The servant stopped staring at Lucas, the young man walking out of the pool, the servant's blue eyes scanning Lucas' naked beauty.
"I have some things in my jacket I want to keep with me."
"Yes, sir. Take what you need." The young man bowed, Lucas smiling at him, moving to his clothes, rummaging through his jacket pockets, taking out the ebony box, folding it in his hand, hiding it from the young servant's watchful gaze, Lucas sensing the man was eyes his body only.
Lucas blushed, the servant's eyes meeting his.
"My new clothes, young man?"
The servant blushed, handing Lucas a silk shirt, pants and briefs.
"Thank you, Benny. Archer has a faithful servant
The young man smiled, scanning Lucas' naked form, his blue pools going to the pool, Archer smiling at Benny.
"My heart, soul and devotion are his, sir." The young servant smiled, Archer smiling at him.
"Return to the house, Benny. Father will be looking for his aperitif."
The young man nodded, moving quickly back to the house.
Archer smiled at Lucas, Lucas already having pulling on his new briefs, the young man in the pool moving out of the water, Lcuas staring at his revealed nakedness, the young man smiling at him, taking a towel that Lucas offered him, the young man seeing Lucas' roaming eyes.
"Take in my beauty, Dathan. I offer all to your love."
Lucas smiled, shaking his head.
"I believe Benny has that well taken care of."
Archer blushed, staring into Lucas' violet pools, seeing only friendship there.
"The nights are lonely, Dathan. He has been a good friend. He makes the loneliness bearable." The young man said, Lucas smiling at him.
"I'm sure his beauty is well loved. You seem to be intense in your love."
Archer smiled, the look making his face so beautiful.
"It can be. He is well seasoned in it. And he is beautiful." The young man smiled, Lucas smiling, handing the young man his new briefs, Archer taking them with thanks.
Archer took his time hiding his center, Lucas smirking and lightly laughing, the young man smiling at him.
"Father will be waiting, Lucas. We shouldn't keep him waiting." The young man smiled, Lucas nodding, the two quickly dressing, their beauty slowly hiding.
Archer extended his hand, Lucas extending his, Archer kissing Lucas' hand in his.
"I offer you my friendship and love, Dathan. Take of both what you wish. My soul is yours."
Lucas nodded, his arm going around the young man.
"Thank you for leaving that truth up to myself. I
think I'll enjoy all of it."
The young man smiled, the two walking towards the Manor.
Levi's eyes raised, the older man seated at the head of a long dining room table, Lucas and Archer both smiling at him as they entered the dining room.
The table was set for only the three of them at one end, Archer walking up to his father, leaning down and kissing his cheek, Lucas following.
"Sorry for our tardiness, Father. Dathan was reluctant to leave the water's reviving minerals." Archer smiled at Lucas, the young man smiling, walking up to Levi, extending his hand.
"Its wetness soothes my soul and body. Its waters are indeed rejuvenating." Lucas smiled, the older man staring up at him.
"As is your magic, Dathan. Thank you from my
heart.." The older man said with soft emotion, standing up, walking around in a
circle, Archer staring at him with amazement.
"Father! You can walk!" He said, Levi smiling at his son, his green eyes going to Lucas' violet.
"The myths are true. The Brotherhood has the magic of life and destiny." He said, Lucas softly blushing, lowering his eyes.
"You healed him, Dathan?" Archer said, staring at the young man.
Lucas' eyes raised, staring at both men.
"My magic is my love. My love is my magic. I shall always heal those in need, and in friendship."
The older man smiled, his hand going to the chair beside his, Archer smiling at the honour he was bestowing on Lucas.
"Thank you, Levi." Lucas said, the young man taking the chair, Archer sitting down on the other side of the table, facing Lucas.
Levi smiled, returning to his seat, picking up a bell and ringing it.
A large heavyset woman walked into the dining room, followed by Benny and another older man, all three carrying platters of food.
"It smells heavenly, Molly." Levi said, the woman smiling at him, placing a large platter of roast beef down on the table in front of him, Benny and the other servant setting platters of roast pork and chicken down, as well as bowls of steaming potatoes and vegetables.
"Thank you, Levi. In honour of your guest." She smiled, smiling at Lucas.
"I sense the heart of the house, a culinary master of love and happiness." He said, the woman beaming.
"Thank you, kind sir. I love to cook and spread my love." She beamed, the three walking back into what Lucas took to be the kitchen, Benny's eyes lingering on him.
"She's been my cook for over thirty years, Dathan. Benny is her son, Arthur her husband and my faithful manservant." Levi said, Archer smiling at Lucas.
"A household of loyal friends surround you,
"Indeed, Lucas. May you honour us with grace?" He said, Lucas smiling, folding his hands.
"Bless us Lord for the food we are about to partake in. I sense the love and devotion in its cooked love. Bless all my new friends surrounding me. Their friendship is the destiny of my soul. As is your love to all of us. May we be blessed with love and happiness, our own and yours. Amen."
"Amen." The two other men said, Archer smiling at Lucas.
"Blessed indeed." He said, Levi smiling at his son, Archer handing the platter of roast beef to Lucas.
The young man smiled, taking the offered platter, the three men filling their plates in quietness.
Archer poured each of them a glass of white wine from a bottle set in an ice bucket, Lucas sipping at the sweet wine.
"Created in our old orchards, Dathan. The last bottle of my Merlot." Levi smiled, Lucas smiling at him.
"I taste its sweetness of the surrounding bounty." He smiled, Levi smiling at him.
The crops are gone, Dathan. The vines have withered, as has the farm's production. Local authorities have whittled away our prosperity. We do not sit well with others." Levi said, Archer's eyes darkening, Lucas seeing his concern.
"They don't know progress at all. They live in the past." He said, Levi's hand going to his son's, patting his.
"My son has a mind of future hopes and dreams. We are pulling up stakes. I finally see--as he's long seen--the writing on the wall. We are heading for the Americas next month." Levi said, Lucas nodding.
"A path of destiny walking towards the new frontier." He said, Archer smiling at him.
"Exactly, Dathan! My father was a warrior for this nation's freedom under the aristocratic domination. And I have an adventurous soul. I take after my father, in his blood and intellect." Archer said, smiling at his faA nher with love.
"My son's courage and intelligence out stride mine. I agree with his adventurous ways."
"Where are you heading?" Lucas said, smiling at Archer.
Levi looked at the young man, Archer's eyes on him as well.
"We decided on the east coast. Summer heat and winter cold. The zest of life." Levi smiled, Lucas smiling at him.
"A new frontier to envision and tame." He smiled, Archer smiling at him.
"Voyages of destiny hold many hearts, Brother. You most of all should know that." Levi said, Lucas nodding his head.
"You seem well versed and learned in the ways of the Brotherhood, Levi." Lucas said, the older man staring at him.
"My family and your brethren are entwined, Dathan. My father told me the stories of the Brotherhood's origins." The older man said, staring at Lucas.
"My brethren have long tried to keep ourselves hidden, Levi."
"You come from hearty stock, Dathan. You are named after the creator of that sect. A sect of magic and power, of courage and devotion." The man said, Lucas staring at him.
"We are all of courage and devotion, Levi." Lucas said, sipping at his wine, his eyes going to the older man's eyes again.
"Would it surprise you to know that I am not named after the creator."
Archer and Levi stared at the young man with confusion.
"The Belmont clan are not the only ones with paths of magical longevity." Lucas said, the two men staring at him with surprise.
"You...you cannot know that!" Archer said, the young man smiling at him.
"As your father stated our brethren are entwined. I have long known of the path you walk." Lucas said, the two men staring at him with awed wonder.
"That would mean...you are over two hundred." Levi said, Lucas softly smiling at him.
"And what of yourself, Levi?"
The older man looked at his son.
"At the harvest moon in a short few weeks I shall reach my two hundredth year. " He said, Archer looking at his father with deep love.
"The Guardianship awaits you, Levi. And your son's Being shall guide the future love ahead. And Archer's Creation shall be the beacon for future destiny." Lucas said, the two men staring at him with shock.
"That is impossible, Dathan! There is no way that you could have known of my family's destiny!" Levi said, Lucas looking at the older man.
"Paths are walked, Levi. The shades follow all of us. And I am a foreboding of perhaps the greater path."
"Your magic?" Archer said, staring at the young man.
"I am of magic, yes. But I've always felt my love was the greater weapon. Against evil and against injustice."
Levi's eyes lowered, his son staring at Lucas.
"You know of the evil permeating though our souls?" He said, Lucas softly smiling at him.
"There is no evil in either of your souls, Archer. No evil through the lineage of Alsarius."
The two men staring at Lucas, the young man sighing.
"Evil is entrenched upon your path, my friends. Alsarius fell into its trap so long ago. But the evil never claimed him. A gift of magic gave him a reprieve from the evil's touch. The same reprieve you all have been given. Evil may have you locked in a Trinity of its making, but your souls are your own. And the Belmont soul is--and always will be--one."
The two men smiled at Lucas, Levi staring into his violet pools.
"Your brethren follow us with their protective courage, Dathan. And I sense you follow us as well." The man said, Lucas smiling at him.
"I sense my magic follows everything." Lucas said, the two men staring at him.
"Let us finish dinner and I shall tell you all that I know of your past, my friends." Lucas said, the two men nodding, Archer handing Lucas a bowl of mushrooms, their eyes meeting.
The young man smiled at Lucas, Lucas softly smiling back.
Lucas felt the eyes in front of him, the young servant smiling at him.
"This way, sir. Archer has given you the room across from his. The bed is freshly made, the room aired out. The evening is cooling down. I took care of the preparations myself, sir." Benny smiled, Lucas softly smiling at him.
"Thank you, Benjamin." Lucas smiled, the young man smirking.
"It's Benny, sir. Only my mother calls me Benjamin, and that's usually when I'm in trouble." He smiled, Lucas lightly laughing.
Lucas followed the young man up the staircase, the young servant guiding him down a long hallway, opening a door half way down, holding it for Lucas.
Lucas walked into the room, the young man following him in.
Lucas looked around the room, seeing two glass doors opened, a soft breeze blowing into the room.
The bed was large, its covers pulled back.
His eyes returned to Benny's blue pools, the young servant smiling at him.
"I am here to serve you, sir. Archer said I was to be of any
Lucas smiled at the young man, seeing his blue eyes scanning Lucas' muscular physique.
"I am fine, Benny. And it's Dathan. My father was a sir." He smiled, the young man smiling at him.
"I shall bring you water and give you a sponge bath, sir...I mean Dathan." The young man said, Lucas smiling at him.
"That's not required, Benjamin."
The young man blushed, looking worried.
"Have I done something wrong, Dathan?"
Lucas smiled, walking up to the young man, his hand going to his shoulder, their eyes meeting.
"I feel your need to please me, Benny. And I see the need within
your blue eyes."
The young man blushed, staring at Lucas.
"You're beautiful, sire. As beautiful as Archer. I can please
you any way you desire."
Lucas smiled, patting his shoulder.
"I need only your friendship, Benny As I know Archer has your
The young man smiled, nodding his head.
"He is so giving, Dathan. I sense you would be too."
Lucas smiled, releasing his touch on the young man smiling at him.
"I shall retire, Benny. You should as well. Goodnight." Lucas said, the young man nodding, lowering his eyes.
Lucas smiled, leaning forward and kissing his cheek.
"Archer may need some attention."
Benny smiled, the young man walking out of the room, closing the door behind him.
Lucas smiled, the young man sighing, walking over to the glass doors, walking out onto the balcony.
The evening had indeed cooled down, the breeze cooling and well needed.
He sighed, leaning against the railing, staring out into the darkness, the area in front of him pitch black, no lamps or lights showing anywhere.
His mind went to the long conversation he'd had with Archer and Levi, the two hearing all of Lucas' giving knowledge.
Of their past and present.
He didn't divulge his own identity, only that he was the man named Dathan Carlisle.
The young man heard a sound behind him, his body turning, two arms going around him.
He stared into a handsome face, Archer Belmont smiling at him in the semi darkness, the balcony softly lit from the bedroom's lamps.
"Even in the evening's coolness I feel the heat of your love." The young man smiled, Lucas staring at him.
"Too forward, again?" Archer smiled, Lucas softly smiling.
"I'm getting used to you flirtatious needs, Archer. But we both know that's not in the cards." Lucas said, the young man holding him sighing.
"Do I get smiles for trying?"
Lucas smiled, the young man smiling at his beautiful face.
"You didn't have to offer me Benny's services, Archer." Lucas said, the young man smiling at him.
"I sense he was forward as well. He's smitten with you. I know the feeling." Archer smiled, Lucas smiling at him.
"He told me of your words, Dathan. Thank you for letting him
"He's a nice young man. I see why you love him."
Archer smiled, pulling Lucas a little closer.
"My heart has a lot of love, Dathan." He said, Lucas staring at him.
"I feel your love, Archer. As I feel all of your lineage."
The young man nodded, releasing Lucas from his hold, the young man sitting down on a settee in the corner of the balcony.
Lucas walked over to him, sitting down beside him.
"You didn't tell my father of the pool, Dathan." Archer said, Lucas staring at him.
"We were alone in our words and actions, Archer. That was between us."
Archer smiled, staring into Lucas' violet pools.
"That's not the pool I'm talking of, Dathan." He said, Lucas staring into his green pools.
"To the pool in my dreams? The pool I now know was of your creation. The pool of your love."
Lucas looked softly surprised, the man rising from his seat, standing at the railing, looking out into the darkness.
He heard the falling water of the small pool to his left, the young man feeling a hand go to his shoulder.
He turned, staring into two pools of immense love, Archer now at his side.
"I saw you there, Dathan. I saw you at that beautiful pool. And there you gave me your love, in all ways. I know it was you."
Lucas stared at the young man, seeing so much love in his green pools.
"You are my soulmate, Dathan. I felt your love there, I feel it here now." Archer said, Lucas stepping back.
"I...I can't give you what you seek, Archer." He softly said, Archer staring into his violet pools.
"You already have given me everything, Dathan. I have your love in my soul. The beauty of its passion I felt at that pool." Archer said, Lucas staring at him.
Archer's hand went to Lucas' shoulder, staring into his violet pools.
"I love you, Dathan. I know that love is nothing against your magic, and your being."
"I feel you love, Archer."
The young man smiled, lowering his hand.
"I'll leave you to a night's rest, Dathan. See you in the morning." The young man said, Lucas' eyes going up into the sky, the young man seeing a star streak across the sky, the night's sky filled with thousands of stars.
"Goodnight, Dathan." Archer said, walking towards the bedroom's doorway.
Archer stopped, staring back at Lucas.
The young man walked up to him, the two staring into each other's eyes.
"I do love you, Archer. I sense your love in my past. And in my future."
The young man smiled, Lucas staring at him.
"You need my love again, Archer. Tonight I'll give you my friendship love." Lucas said, his hand going in Archer's, the man staring at him.
"Let's sleep in each other's arms. And let the path and water flow as it must." Archer said, smiling at Lucas.
The young man leaned forward, his and Lucas lips meeting.
Lucas parted from the kiss, staring into the young man's green pools.
The two walked into the bedroom, their arms joined.
Lance walked out onto the veranda, his eyes meeting Justin's blue pools.
Justin sat with Josh, his arm around him, Josh staring out into the darkening sky.
It was after dinner now, everyone having remained quiet for most of the meal, their thoughts on the missing Lucas.
Justin's and Lance's love surrounded Josh, all three worrying in their hearts for their missing Lucky.
Josh spent most of the day with the infants, his caring love surrounding them, Justin and Lance at their sides.
Everyone had walked around the whole estate, no sign of Lucas anywhere.
Colton had voiced his calming love, the three of Lucas' heart having a private discussion with him.
His love showed for all three of them, the young man's intelligence and calmness softening their worries.
Colton knew that Lucas was on a quest for truth, his magic, love and focused courage his greatest assets.
Here now it was after eight, the day's sun sinking behind the trees on the other side of the lake, the fountains throwing their waters into the sky.
Lance sat down beside Justin and Josh, both softly smiling at him.
"Where are our treasures?" Josh said, Lance smiling and kissing his lips.
"Lucas' mothers are sending them to dreamland. They both took
them upstairs to their crib. They're well fed and deep within the love."
Both men smiled, Lance's arm going around Josh.
"How are you doing, Joshy?" He said, Justin smiling at his husband.
"I miss him, Lance. He's only been gone for hours and I miss him so much." Josh said, Justin kissing his lips now.
"We both miss him as well, Joshy. He's a part of our one soul."
"I still feel his love in mine." Lance said, Justin smiling at him.
"I as well, Lance. He's with all of our hearts." Justin said, Josh snuggling against him.
"I just wish he was here in my arms. I worry when he's gone. Why did he leave so suddenly?"
"The magic drew him in, Papa."
Josh's eyes went to the veranda doors, Colton standing in their open centers, Jonathan and Haras at his sides.
The three men and others walked out into the cooling breezed of the sun's last breath.
Lucas' family and friends, as well as their own walked out onto the veranda.
"No word, Colton?" Justin asked, the young man smiling at him, sitting down beside Justin and his two soulmates.
"My magic is silent. But I feel his love surrounding us. His magic is off on another quest." The young man smiled, Jonathan kissing his cheek, the young man beside him.
Haras smiled at the two, the Egyptian seated beside Enrique and Derek on the couch beside theirs.
Derek's eyes met Colton's, the young man smiling at him.
"Your magic is as great, Colt." Derek said, Haras smiling at him.
"As is his love." The Egyptian said, Colton smiling at the three men seated beside them, the young man feeling Jonathan's hand going into his.
Colton's eyes met Jonathan's, the young man nodding his head.
"We need to discuss something, Justin." Jonathan said, Justin smiling at his brother.
"Sure, Jon. Do you want to go inside for privacy?" He said, Jonathan smiling at his brother.
"No, Jus. We're surrounded by family and love." He said, his father smiling at him.
Jonathan's blue eyes looked at Justin, his older brother seeing the love shining in his younger brother's eyes.
"Lucas said something before he disappeared this morning." Jonathan said, Justin looking at him.
"What did he say, Jon?" Lance said, Jonathan looking at Colton.
"He was talking about the love surrounding him. He said he saw all the couples and joined groups of love he'd guided to happiness. Some known, some unknown."
"Yes, I remember him saying that. And I said that we knew of no unknown couple or group of love around us. We have all seeing Lucas' guiding love uniting all the couples around him." Justin said, Jonathan nodding.
"There is an unknown group of new love surrounding all of you. And I am part of it." Jonathan said, staring at his brother, Justin looking confused.
"We all see your trio of love, Jon. We all accept the love you, Colton and Haras have for each other." Josh said, the man smiling at the three, Jonathan rising from his seat, Colton joining him, their hands together.
Haras rose from his seat, at his soulmates' sides, everyone staring at the three.
"Lucas' love is ever giving, Justin. He saw into our hearts and our greatest need. More love." Colton said, Haras smiling at the two younger men.
Justin looked confused, Lance's eyes going to two others staring at the three.
"Oh, wow." He softly said, Justin's eyes meeting his.
"What is it my love?" He said, Josh's eyes meeting Lance's.
Lance smiled, shaking his head with a smile.
"His love is incredible." He smiled, looking at Justin.
"Our Lucas' love is ever growing. He sees all and their needs." Lance smiled, looking at the three young men.
"I'm happy for all five of you." Lance smiled, Justin looking confused, seeing two others rise from their seats, Enrique and Derek walking up to the three young men.
"Lucas has united all our love. We all feel a deeper love in our hearts for each other. Our love for our soulmates wasn't enough. We needed a greater love. We five have found that." Enrique said, Colton smiling at him.
"We six. Correct ,Hemi?" Colton smiled, everyone staring at the five with surprise, Derek's face changing, Hemidon Amotep now showing again.
"I love all four. They are the greatest give life has given me." Hemi said, Haras smiling at him.
Justin rose from his seat, walking up to the five, staring at his brother.
"This is so unbelievable, Jon!" He softly said, Colton's arm going around Jonathan, Haras' going as well.
"As is your quartet of love, Justin. Lucas' love unites all. There is no singularity in his joining love. He feels all hearts and what they need." The young man said, Justin staring at him, his blue eyes going to Jonathan.
"Is...is this what you want, Jon? Is there more here than wild sex?" Justin said, Jonathan smiling at his older brother.
"Their physical love is beautiful, my brother. And their emotional love is my life's breath. I need and love all five." He smiled, his blue eyes staring into his brother's.
"Then I'm happy for you, Jon. I see the greater happiness in your eyes. It mirror my own threesome of love." He smiled, Jonathan beaming, the two brothers hugging deeply.
Randall and Lisa rose from their seats, walking up to their sons, Lynn smiling at both men.
"Is this really what you want, son? This...this is unheard of in today's society. It's just grasping with the reality of gay unions. This if it's found out would be thunderous."
Hemi walked up to Jonathan's parents, the two staring at him.
"My live has been a long voyage of destiny. I have met many of both sexes who have taken my heart. Lucas' own great-grandfather being one of them. In this four beside me I find a total love. A love that consumes me. All four have voiced that same truth to myself, to all my selves. Our love is thunderous, in it's emotion and its passion." The young man said, Randall staring at him.
"You are the most unbelievable of the five, Derek. The magic you
possess, the destiny you walk. Please take our concerns in stride. We only want
our son to be safe and happy."
Jonathan walked up to his parents.
"I am safe, Dad. In the heroic love of Haras' and Hemi's
protective love. And in Colton's magical love. And in Enrique's giving love. All
five of us have opened our hearts to each other. We hold a bond of love, beauty
and life. I'm very happy, Dad."
Randall nodded, Lisa smiling at her son.
"That's all we ever wanted for you, Jonathan. We'll come round to this new idea. We see easily the love all five of you show to each other. We're just amazed by its magical center."
Colton, Enrique and Haras walked up to Jonathan and Hemi, the five now together again.
"The center of our magic is our love for each other. We three of magic will protect the other two. And don't forget, Lucas' love is all around us." Colton smiled, Randall and Lisa smiling at the young man.
"Alright, Colton. We'll welcome you five as one." Randall said, Colton smiling at him.
Colton's face suddenly changed, a look of shock and emotional worry crossing it.
"Oh no! Oh God, Lucas! Go to the water! For the love of God, what's wrong?!!!" Colton screamed, everyone looking shocked.
The veranda's darkening quietness was shattered by a loud scream.
Everyone rose from their seats, Josh, Justin and Lance now at the veranda's railing, staring out into the lake before them.
The fountains were alive with their lighted wetness, everyone staring between the two fountains in front of them.
The water between them was boiling, then suddenly it moved, flooding outwards, almost reaching the veranda steps.
Standing in the middle of where the water once lay, stood Lucas.
The man was crying, then he sank to his knees, the water coming back into the lake, the young man engulfed by the returning waters.
Everyone was on the move, Justin and Josh along with Lance at their head, Josh and Justin diving into the lake, swimming towards where they'd seen Lucas.
The two men dived, disappearing under the water, everyone standing on the shore.
A few moments later they came back up, Lucas laying in their arms, the two swimming back to the shore.
Lance and Finn waded into the water, helping Josh and Justin carry Lucas to shore.
Josh held him in his arms, gently setting him down on the soft grass, the young man gasping, water coming out of his mouth, Justin at his side, feeling his chest, and his head.
"He's swallowed a lot of water. But he's going to be okay." He said, the wetness of his tears mixed with his water covered face.
Lucas' eyes slowly opened, everyone staring down into his hazy violet pools.
"Paths walked, mirrored...mirrored selves. I...I lost it all." He stuttered, the man going limp in his Josh's arms.
"He's exhausted. Let's get him into the house and out of these wet clothes." Horace said, Justin and Josh rising with Lucas in their arms, Josh holding him close, the young man's head on his chest.
Lance's eyes met Colton's, the young man rapped in Haras' and Hemi's arms.
"He's lost, Josh. He's lost with a magic now of his doing. I think he's found the truth." Colton said, the young man suddenly staggering, the two Egyptians holding onto him, Jonathan and Enrique now at their sides.
Haras lifted the young man into his arms, Colton softly gasping, his head against the Egyptian's chest.
"He's...he's found the truth. I need to follow his magic...to that...."
The young man's eyes closed, everyone staring at him and Lucas.
The two were carried into the house, everyone silently following them.
Everyone rose from their seats, sitting in the Receiving Room.
Horace and Pierce walked into the room, Justin and Lance following them, Haras and Hemi, along with Enrique walking behind them.
"They're both resting comfortably. They're both seemingly exhausted. Lucas more so, but Colton's sleeping deeply as well. I'm not sure what's going on. It's like they're both in a self induced coma, or deep sleep. It's highly confusing." The doctor said, Pierce nodding as well, Adam's arm going around him.
"Horace is correct. We couldn't wake either of them. I believe we'll just have to wait until they awaken themselves." The younger doctor said, Adam kissing his cheek.
"Josh is staying with Lucas. We couldn't move him." Lance said, his arm around Justin.
"As Jonathan is with Colton. Their love and ours surround them." Enrique said, Haras' arm around him.
"Love will draw them back." Grayson said, everyone nodding their heads, sitting down again.
"I don't understand all this. Colton felt Lucas' return, and he felt the danger Lucas was in. He knew he was returning." Enrique said, Haras nodding.
"Neither I or Hemi felt his return. Did any of you other of any magic feel it?" He said, looking around at Lucas' families.
"No sense of it, Haras." Tristan said, Emerson shaking his head no, Francesca and Savannah agreeing with them.
" I felt something."
All eyes turned, staring at Grayson.
"What did you feel, my love?" Gabriel said, Grayson looking around at everyone.
"I sensed a soft change in the sun's warmth, as if a cold hand had grabbed hold of the wind. And then I sensed a deep love. It, I believe, was what sent the waters of the lake cascading towards us, away from Lucas. You all saw him standing in the center of the lake on solid ground. And then he let whatever that love was go, and the waters came rushing back. I'm thinking that's what's happened." He said, everyone staring at him with confusion.
"Mostly right, Grayson."
All eyes turned, everyone staring at Colton standing in the room's doorway.
Haras and Hemi moved, Enrique ahead of them.
"Stop please, my loves."
All three stopped, staring at the young man.
Gideon walking up to them, staring at his nephew.
"Are you alright, Colton?" He said with love.
"I'm on the path, Uncle. I just have to find him. He's opening the pathway. I feel his love centering. I have to go to him." The young man said, everyone looking at each other.
"We're both alright, everyone. Lucas' love protects ourselves in all dimensions. I've finally realized that. Now I just have to talk to him. His heart's shattered by a truth. I just have to help him fill it again with the love." The young man said, looking around the room, his eyes meeting Grayson's.
"I need the artefact, Uncle Gray." The young man said, Grayson staring at him.
"Lucas took the ebony box with him, Colton. We all saw that." The man said, Colton staring at him.
"A tomb holds many treasures. Some hidden, some laying in wait. Please give me the treasure you fought for." Colton said, Gabriel's eyes meeting Grayson's.
"He's knows, Gray." He said, Grayson nodding.
"And I believe I know something as well. Alright, young man. Give it to him, Gabe." Grayson said, the judge's hand going to his pocket.
Out of it he pulled a small wooden box, the judge walking across the room, stopping in front of Colton.
"We found this in Egypt, in a lost tomb that Lucas guided us to." The man said, Jacques and Lewis staring at the box, Grayson's eyes on Colton's.
"Thank you four for your courage and love. His love protects all." Colton said, reaching out and picking up the box in Gabriel's hand.
"We are safe, against the love. We shall return once our hearts are filled."
The young man smiled, then instantly vanished from in front of them.
Everyone rose from to their feet in shock, Gideon staring at the spot where his nephew just stood.
Grayson walked up to him, their eyes meeting.
"Our young friend is on magic's path. I sensed that." Grayson said, Jonathan walking into the room.
"Colton's still sleeping. How's Lucas?" He said, everyone looking at him with surprise.
"He...he was just here." Nick softly said, Jonathan staring at him.
"Lucas was here?"
"No, Jon. Colton was here." Haras said his arm going around him, Jonathan looking at him with confusion.
"What are you talking about? I just left him."
Grayson stared at the young man, Gideon looking at him.
"Do you know what's going on, Grayson?" He asked, the older man sighing.
"I think Lucas and Colton are on a path of discovery. And I think Lucas already has created that path. He was just here."
Everyone looked confused, the man looking around at everyone.
"We just saw Colton, everyone. Or his spiritual self. And mixed in that magical self was Lucas. I believe the young man hit the nail on the head."
Gabriel's arm went around him.
"What do you mean, my love?"
"Colton said that Lucas has opened the pathway. I believe he meant the pathway to the pool. To Lucas' pool. And I think Lucas' soul joined with him, guiding him there."
"How do you know that for sure, Grayson?" Justin said, Grayson staring at the young man.
"Colton called me Uncle Gray. Lucas and Tristan are the only two who called me by that name." He said, everyone widening their eyes in surprise.
"I think Colton's just been guided to the center of Lucas' love."
On the Road Again
Colton's blue pools opened, the man staring at the vision of beauty in front of him.
A large waterfall was rushing downward, its waters falling into a large crystal clear pool.
He walked forward, taking in its remembered beauty.
On seeing it the day of the weddings.
The pool of Lucas' magical love.
"It's as beautiful as I remember it. I feel the love and beauty."
Colton's head turned, staring into blue pools, a man seated on the large boulder by the pool's shore.
"All hearts hold beauty, we just need to find its truth." The man said, Colton staring at him.
"Who are you?" He said, the man smiling at him.
"I am the Watcher. I stand on the sands of time awaiting his showing love."
Colton stared at the man, seeing the beauty of his young face, his skin a soft coppery color, Colton sensing he was French or maybe Italian.
"Who are you, really?"
The man smiled, staring at the young man.
"A vision of other times, of mirrored truths, of lost moments. I am lost in the reality of my own self. But he perhaps shall see even behind my facades. His love is unbelievable."
The man smiled, nodding.
"Yes, young warrior."
Colton blushed, staring at the man.
"I am not a warrior."
"We are warriors when the cause is truth, when the campaign is life." The man said, Colton staring at him.
"You have to be a Belmont. You're full of riddles."
The young man laughed, Colton sensing the love and goodness in his rich laugh.
"An honour I would greatly carry, if not for life's unchanging
"Lucas has always said that all paths can be changed, you just have to believe in what you want out of life."
The man nodded, staring at the pools.
"His intelligence is as giving as his love. The path chose well."
"Where's Lucas? I thought I'd find him here."
The young man rose from his seat on the boulder, walking up to Colton, the man a good six inches taller than the young man.
Colton took in his muscular build, the young man sensing he was a courageous warrior as well.
"This is the sanctuary of his love, Colton. Today of all days, of all paths, he shuns his own center. It's up to you to draw him back into himself."
"What do you mean?"
The man smiled, his hand going to the younger man's shoulder.
"You are the answer to many eventualities, my young friend. Today you begin your journey, The Bowman."
"Lucas called me that before."
The man smiled.
"Intelligent, indeed." He said, his eyes going back to Colton's blue.
"The arrows of life fly from the bow of truth. Each etched with determination and love. You are charge with aiming the bow. I think your first target should be your lost friend. The father of your love."
"I...I am to wound Lucas?"
"No, my young friend. You are to center him. Your love will center him." The young man said, looking around him.
"Use the box and the truth of its contents. Ir shall center him."
"What do you...?"
"He comes. To other paths I go."
The man ran towards the water of the pool, diving into it.
He disappeared before he hit the water, the pool calm, with no ripples.
"Who are you?" Colton softly said.
"I am a fraud, Colt. I am nothing but a lie."
Colton's head turned, staring at Lucas sitting on the boulder.
"You are no such thing, Lucas. You are love and you are my friend."
Lucas' violet pools met Colton's blue, the young man walking over to him.
"What are you doing here, Colt? How did you get here?" Lucas said, Colton sitting down on the boulder beside the young man.
"I was drawn here by the worry I felt in your soul. By the magic of your unending love."
Lucas' eyes met Colton's, the young man smiling at him with love.
"Where did you go, Luke? Where did the magic of that box draw you to?" Colton said, Lucas looking out at the calm water before him.
"I was drawn into the truth of my family's past, Colt. I saw the beginnings of my own truth."
Colton's hand went to the young man's shoulder, Lucas feeling his love.
"I've felt all your feelings since you left us, Luke. The
calmness, the love, then the worry, and finally the fear and emotion. What did
you see at the end of your voyage?"
Lucas stared out at the pool, Colton feeling him softly tremble.
"I saw the truth, Colt. The truth of the path I set in motion. The path to my own existence. Even I couldn't stop that."
Colton quietly stared at him, feeling the young man's emotions.
"The Watcher was here, Lucas. I believe it was he who drew me here. To the center of your soul." Colton said, looking out at the pool, Lucas' eyes staring at him with surprise.
"He...he was here?"
"Yes, Lucas. He was here. He just left the moment before
Lucas stared around, scanning every inch of the pool and its shores.
"What did he do?" The young man said, Colton staring at him.
"We talked, Lucas. He said some strange things, but he seemed well aware of this place and other things. I'm still not sure who he is. He talked of me being The Bowman."
Lucas' eyes widened in surprise, staring at Colton.
His arm went around the younger man.
"Tell me everything he said, Colt." Lucas said, Colton seeing a steely focus in his violet pools.
Colton told Lucas everything from when Lucas' had appeared in the lake, to this moment.
Lucas rose from his seat, staring out at the pool.
"The arrows of life fly from the bow of truth. I have seen those words almost to the word." He softly said, Colton staring at him.
"In the journal? Emmanuel's journal?"
Lucas turned, staring at the young man.
"The book quoted Archer Belmont as the meaning of that phrase. The man was a gifted bowman, as you are, Colt." Lucas said, Colton rising from the boulder, walking up to Lucas.
"Who was he?"
Lucas stared out at the pool again.
"He was the first of the Belmont lineage, Colton. The first of that revised name." He said, Colton staring at him.
"Who were they before they were Belmonts?" He said, Lucas looking at him.
"Our family name changed through the generations, Colt. It began with Belgras, morphing into other versions, the last Belmont. Archer honoured his father by keeping part of his name of Belmonius."
Colton nodded, staring into his violet pools.
"Archer was the first to settle in the Americas. He moved the family to Northern U.S."
"That's why Emmanuel settled in Vermont. He was from there or around there." Colton said, Lucas staring at him.
"What is Archer's significance to the path, Dad?"
"He was the truth, Colton. Or part of it."
"What truth, Dad?
Lucas stared at the young man, his eyes lowering, walking back to the boulder, sitting down again.
"You need to go home, Colt." He said, Colton moving, sitting down beside his friend, and surrogate father.
"I am home, Dad. Wherever you are is home for me."
Lucas' eyes raised staring into his blue pools.
"You're growing up, Colt. You have a life of love ahead of you."
"I know, Dad. We voiced that truth to our friends and family tonight. Everyone knows of the five of our soul."
Lucas smiled, his arm going around the young man.
"I felt your needful love, son. In all four you'll find
Colton smiled, looking into Lucas' violet pools.
"As you have found in your three."
Lucas smiled, nodding, looking out at the pool again.
"Their love flows like the waters of my soul."
Colton snuggled against Luke, the young man looking at the water as well.
"What's bothering you, Dad? I feel your magic's confusion. You've sealed yourself off from it and from myself. I don't feel your own magic." He said.
Lucas sighed, looking into Colton's concerned loving eyes.
"I've made a mistake, Colt. A mistake that may have had dire consequences."
"What consequences? What did you do?"
Lucas stared into his blue pools.
"I let my magic have control again, Colt. And its changed everything."
Colton stared at the young man, Lucas staring into his blue eyes.
"What has it changed?"
"Life, Colt. So many lives." Lucas said, sighing again.
"You need to go, Colton. I need to be alone in my thoughts."
"You're never alone, Luke. Josh is now at your side, holding onto you in your self induced sleep."
Lucas stared at the pool again.
"I needed to be alone, from the magic and from myself."
"Yourself is love, Dad. That's why I came here. I knew you'd be here. That's why he drew me here. He said that I am to center you with my love. I love you, Lucas. You saved me and gave me a life. A life of love and happiness. I will do all in my soul and heart to see you have the same."
Lucas teared up, pulling the young man closer.
"I love you too, Colt. As another son of my soul."
Colton smiled, kissing Lucas' cheek.
"I'll be a big brother to both of them. Your sons will be my brothers."
Lucas smiled, tearing up more.
Colton stared at him, his hand going into his pocket.
"I talked with Grayson and Gabriel. Grayson gave me the artefact."
Lucas stared at the young man.
"I have the artefact, Colt. It drew me into the past, into the reality of life."
"What about the one found in Egypt?"
Lucas stared at Colton, the young man staring at him.
"The Watcher said I was to use it. To center you."
Lucas stared at Colton, the young man's hand moving, coming out of his pocket, Lucas staring at the small wooden box in Lucas' hand.
"What...what is it, Colt?"
"I do not know, Dad. I haven't opened it. I sense magic around it. Do you know what it is?"
Lucas stared at the box, then into Colton's blue eyes.
"I only knew where to find it. The journal guided me to its and the ebony box's locations. The ebony was a gateway to the truth." He said, Colton handing Lucas the box.
"The Watcher seems to think it will aid you. To make you see the greater truth."
Lucas' eyes went to the pool, Colton quietly watching him.
"Nothing will aid me, Colton. Not when I know the truth." He said, his eyes turning back to Colton, Colton seeing the tears in his eyes.
Lucas stared at the small wooden box, his hand going out, lifting it off Colton's palm.
He stared at it, finding a small catch on the front side, gently moving it.
It didn't open.
Lucas closed his eyes, then opened them again, Colton seeing them now emerald green.
Lucas moved the catch again, an audible click heard.
His eyes met Colton's, the young man lifting the box's lid.
He stared into the box, Lucas' eyes widening.
"It cannot be!" He softly said.
Colton saw Lucas' eyes falsh green, then violet, then blue then white, then back to their usual violet.
The young man smiled, his eyes turning to Colton, the young man seeing a look of total love on Lucas' handsome face.
"Thank you, Colton. It is the answer to my worries. To my doubts and to the truth. I can face it all now."
The young man smiled, pulling Colton up with him, the two standing beside the boulder.
"Return to your loves, new and familiar, Colton. I have to go on a short voyage. I shall see you in the real world. Life and love continues."
Lucas smiled, the young man vanishing in front of Colton.
Colton looked around the pool, feeling a soft edge of magic surrounding him.
The young man felt the darkness begin to surround him, the young man lost in the warmth of Lucas' surrounding love.
Colton opened his blue pools, staring into another set of blue and three sets of brown.
Jonathan sat on the bed beside him, Haras, Hemi and Enrique standing behind him.
"Welcome back, our love." Enrique smiled, Colton smiling up at him.
"About four hours Colt. It's after midnight." Jonathan said, leaning forward and kissing his soulmate's lips.
"Lucas...is he alright?" He softly said, Haras smiling at him.
"He's sleeping. He awoke for a moment and said love was with the magic. He's gone back to sleep again. As you should too, my love." He said, Colton smiling up at the four men.
"I need my teddy bears."
All four laughed, Colton scanning their near naked beauty.
All four were in briefs or boxers, their chests bare.
"We were just going to climb in with you and surround you with our love." Jonathan smiled, Colton smiling into his blue eyes.
"The happiness of my life."
The four smiled, Haras and Enrique moving to the right side of the bed, Hemi and Jonathan climbing into the left.
Hemi's face changed, Derek's blue pools now staring into Colton's blue.
"You need rest, Colt. We'll talk about all this in the morning. We're just happy you're alright." Derek smiled, leaning over Jonathan and kissing the young man's lips.
"Of course I'm alright. I have you five."
All four smiled, their arms wrapping around each other, Haras' hand going to the lamp.
Colton felt their warmth around him, Jonathan's and Enrique's smoothness against his sides.
His blue pools looked around the darkness feeling the quietness of the bedroom.
What have you found, Luke?
What was in that box?
And what happened to you on the magical path to your past?
And why did I just feel someone else's magic?
Colton closed his eyes, the young man wrapped in the love surrounding him.
He failed to see two blue pools staring at him and his soulmates from the darkened corner of the room.
An image moved, walking through the wall.
He walked in silence through the upper floor, descending with just as much silence down the grand staircase.
He stopped at the portrait of Emmanuel in its center, staring at his handsome face.
The man smiled, walking downstairs, walking the long corridor to the cavadeum.
He walked into the circle of statues, staring around at each face.
Sleep in peace, children of his ascension.
You all gave as you needed.
And now he has the truth.
Forgive me, child of truth and life.
The paths moves as I must show them.
I may warrant your forgiveness at the end of this.
The shadow lowered his head, his image disappearing in the starlit darkness from the open ceiling.
A man walked out of the darkness between Alsarius' and Tristan's statues.
Two violet eyes scanned upwards, the stars twinkling in the lit sky.
"You are the mystery of all of us, shadow of truth. I think it's time I watched. I now know who you are." Lucas said, his violet pools looking at the statues surrounding him.
He scanned the circle of lineage, stopping on Archer's handsome face.
"Forgive me, Archer. I gave you too much. And now I'll have to pay the price."
Lucas lowered his eyes, the young man walking out of the cavadeum.
He didn't notice two blue eyes staring at him from behind two other statues.
Colton blended into the darkness, the young man vanishing.
End of Chapter 192
And so Lucas has returned from his voyage.
What happened in his past with his ancestors Levi and Archer?
What happened that seemed to emotionally shock Lucas?
He was lost in his own emotions, Colton guided to the pool of his love by the mysterious Watcher.
And the Watcher still watches.
What was in the box Colton had?
It seems to have calmed Lucas' soul.
Where did he then disappear to?
He now seems to know who the illusive Watcher is.
The morrow may bring answers.
You know me and my surprises.
