Chapter 104: Ophelia

I hadn’t meant to hurt Rhys.

I thought if I could only manage to bring him and Uncle Graham together, all of their differences and dark, terrible history would fall away.

I hated to see his brow crease in pain…

Was that why he kissed me, to make the pain go away? It didn’t feel like Lord Blackthorne’s kiss, and not just because he would’ve sunk his fangs into my lower lip.

I hoped Rhys and his father would become closer the longer Uncle Graham and Mother stayed at the Alabaster Rose Castle, but they wouldn’t speak to each other or even acknowledge the other’s existence.

I asked Mother what to do, and she only sighed and told me that “sometimes there’s simply nothing to be done, Ophelia.”

But I refused to believe that Uncle Graham and his son couldn’t be reunited in unholy father-son love… (Not that kind, eheheh.)

Maybe I just had to get Rhys in a good mood.

If Finn and my passion-infused instincts were right, Rhys would enjoy our research sessions even more if I were naked.

“O-Ophelia?”

“Belladonna, Lord Blackthorne.”

“Noted. Belladonna.”

“I’m having thoughts of running away, Lord Blackthorne.”

“A-Are you?”

I held out my hands, palms up. “You might consider tying me up.”

“Tying you–” He cleared his throat. “Well, I did learn a great deal about knots when playing a simple but handsome fisherman on a made-for-TV movie in which I wooed a stressed-out single mother who moved to a small coastal town in order to get away from it all and find love again. I mean, I would’ve if I were an actor and not a vampire lord.”

Rhys’s acting experience did prove to be very helpful…

“You’ll never consider running away again, Belladonna,” said Lord Blackthorne. “And if you do–I plan to use certain methods to help you rethink your decision.”

Unfortunately, the basement dungeon was already occupied, eheheh… (Mother and I would have to set up a schedule.)

“Oh, Ophelia,” Mother said. “I’ll be sure to have my pet sanitize the riding crop for you after we’ve finished.”

“Anything you desire, Mistress,” said Uncle Graham.

I was glad to see Uncle Graham helping Mother process her simmering pain and anger. As the days went by, Mother started to resemble the pregnant nude paintings of her more and more, but I decided against telling Benny. He still needed to find his own way to deal with Father’s loss.

And when the dungeon was empty, Rhys continued to help me with my grief and writerly inspiration…

I had so many bloodstained story ideas…

He looked so darkly handsome and authoritative, holding a riding crop. I could easily believe him to be my cruel and imperious Lord Blackthorne…

To my surprise, it was the times that came after, when Lord Blackthorne became Rhys again and healing followed the pain, that were my favorite.

Rhys was so gentle when he tended to my welts and rope burns, caressing my bare skin and applying salve.

His warm hands didn’t miss a single spot, eheheh…

“…I think it’s time to get you cleaned off, Ophelia. The water will feel nice against your skin.”

I sat up. “Carry me?”

He gathered my naked body in his arms and hurried to the bathroom–Mother had been avoiding the bathrooms, I’d noticed, so there wasn’t any competition. He continued to hold me as the tub filled. “I wasn’t sure what temperature you preferred, but slightly warm should be soothing enough–ah, it’s overflowing…”

“Be careful, you could slip,” I said. I wasn’t sure if fae were as durable as vampires. “I don’t want you to get hurt,” I added, before he could think I was worried about myself instead.

He pulled me against him as I was halfway into the tub. He was definitely stronger than a normal human…

“You’re kind to worry for me, Ophelia,” he said. “I’m not accustomed to that–anyone worrying about what becomes of me.”

I knew he wasn’t only speaking about the bathroom floor, even though I’d thought he was angry at me for encouraging Uncle Graham to visit…

“Rhys…” I got a strange feeling when I was around him, one I hadn’t experienced during all my research sessions with Finn. It was more than passion, which I’d long considered the most important ingredient in dark, terrible romance, even though I felt that too. “I think I’m in love with you.”

His mouth hung open. “Me? Rhys Straud?”

“You,” I agreed. “Rhys Straud.”

His eyebrows drew together, and his eyes looked sad again. “Are you certain your feelings aren’t a side effect of our business relationship–and your late father’s absence?”

I didn’t have to think about it for long. “I’m sure.”

“Well, then, that’s–let me help you into your bath before it gets cold–” He helped me slide into the lukewarm water. “I should, ah, give you your privacy now…?”

I reached for his hand.

“Ophelia?”

“Stay,” I said. “We can both fit.”

“A very intriguing proposition,” he said, “though I have doubts about your hypothesis…”

I enjoyed seeing him stripped of all his clothing too, eheheh… And our second kiss had all of the lust of the first, but with excitement instead of sadness.

In the end, my dark instincts were right, even if it was a tight fit…

It was a good thing we were in a bathtub, because Rhys and I were unable to deny our unbridled lust and got very, very dirty, eheheh… (I shouldn’t elaborate, because details inspired by real events will appear in my debut novel, A Vamp in Shining Ashes, and I don’t want to spoil anything.)

Afterward, Rhys took me to a beautiful, slightly overgrown walled garden a short distance from the castle. It was still night, but wouldn’t be for long.

“As a fae,” he said, despite still wearing his vampire ensemble, “I’ll always be drawn to flora and open skies over cold, dark dungeons. But not even the loveliest garden can compare to your beauty…”

“I like it too,” I said. “I can picture a Gothic heroine reading old romances at night here before being abducted by a vampire…”

He led me to a clear patch of grass surrounded by flowers and helped me to the ground, despite the stone benches nearby and the fanciness of our clothing. “It…it isn’t just vampires you like, is it?”

“No,” I said–and meant it. “I like you too, Rhys. I’d like you even if you were a gargoyle.”

“I’m far too handsome to ever pass for a gargoyle,” he said, smiling, “no matter the amount of makeup or prosthetics.”

“Even though you look so much alike,” I said, “I think you’re even handsomer than Finn. But his dark spear of manhood curves slightly to the left and yours curves slightly to the right, eheheh…”

“…What?”

I kissed him, hoping to distract him. I forgot that Finn was unusual for not getting jealous easily, unlike all the possessive, dominant heroes in novels who possessed enormous manhoods and muscles and even bigger tempers…

But Rhys didn’t kiss me back.

“How do you know what–what my brother’s dark spear of manhood looks like?”

I wouldn’t lie to Rhys, even if I loved him, and even if lies made things less painful sometimes. Finn had regretted lying to Benny–and to himself.

“He was my first,” I admitted. “And my research partner, before I met you.”

“Finn,” he said bitterly. “Always Finn. He–he stole you from me before I even met you. Am I your second choice, then?” He laughed. “Don’t answer that–I’m forever the unwanted scraps.”

“But I want you–”

He stood and started walking away. “I should’ve known, when he reached out to me. Did he pity me–and feel guilty for stealing our father?”

I’d never been afraid of Rhys before, no matter what he did to me. It was one of the reasons I loved him: I always felt safe in his arms or beneath his whip.

But now I was afraid–afraid that I’d bring him more pain, and not the kind he enjoyed.

The door to his bedroom was locked when I finally returned to the castle. I wouldn’t have gone in, but…I wanted to know. So I found myself on the castle’s highest balcony instead, waiting for the sun to come up.

It had never bothered me before, when people told me I was strange, or that I didn’t think before I spoke.

But I should’ve known better. I knew his relationship with Finn and Uncle Graham was strained, even if I hadn’t known exactly why. And why had I compared him to Finn like that instead of mentioning their eyes?

I leaned hard against the railing.

And then I leaned against nothing at all.

Everything was happening too fast. I saw an orange blur…

Batty?” Where had he come from?

I closed my eyes–and felt something tug at the hem of my dress, or maybe it was just the wind.

I knew this wouldn’t be the kind of pain I craved…

I’m sorry, Rhys.

I heard a sickening crunch–and then everything went dark.

The next thing I heard was birdsong–and then Rhys’s voice. “Ophelia,” he said. “Ophelia, please wake up. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m sorr–” The last word broke off into a sob.

But I couldn’t open my eyes, not even for him. My hazy consciousness slipped away as wind whipped my hair around my cheeks and my body screamed in agony.

Uncle Graham’s voice woke me sometime later. “Belated,” he said, “but not too late, I hope.” Pain, and then something cold held to my lips, followed by the taste of metal. “Be reborn as my daughter…”

I tried to open my eyes.

I slept.

This time, it was Rhys’s voice that woke me again. “Thank you,” he said. “Thank you, Dad–thank you.”

“For the change of clothes? No boy of mine should wander around in a robe, unless it’s a certain kind of party.”

“For–for saving her.”

“She asked it of me once,” said Uncle Graham, “but I would’ve done it regardless, for her mother’s sake. Bee has suffered enough.”

“I don’t care why you did it,” Rhys said. “You saved the most precious person in the world to me, and for that, I can never thank you enough.”

“Ah, it would seem our little fledgling is awake. She’ll be hungry soon, but there isn’t anything else in the world like fae blood–speaking from experience.” He gently disentangled himself from Rhys’s arms. “I should check on Bee. They’re monitoring her for stress in another ward.” He tossed a smile over his shoulder at me as he left. “We’ll talk later, daughter.”

Rhys rushed to my side. “I’m sorry,” he said again. “Can you ever forgive me, Ophelia?”

Before I could answer, he added, “Are you hungry? Can I get you anything? Blood? A blanket?”

“Just you,” I said. Hopefully that would answer his first question too. “But where’s Batty?” That crunch…it couldn’t have been him, not when I felt so much pain. Why had he jumped after me? I hoped I’d broken his fall.

“He disappeared,” Rhys said. “I’ll keep looking when I return home for more of your things. And I never wanted to see you hurt–not like that–and the thought of losing you…what an inexcusable idiot I was, over something so petty.” He kissed my hand. “I’ll make everything up to you, Ophelia, I promise.”

“You don’t have to make anything up to me, Rhys.” I was a vampiress, just as I always wanted.

But it was seeing a certain father and son brought together that made everything worth it.

I couldn’t have my father back again, but Rhys could have his…

  1. Okay that resolution was even better than Ophelia’s ass and nip norps…really hard to do! 😚

    Graham even made up for me having to almost see his alabaster ass literally whipped (though I couldn’t imagine Bianca doing anything else). Vampiric fantasies, break open only in case of emergency.

    I’d want Ophelia to embrace her humanity in any story but this. It’s Fangs 2, not humans. 😉

    1. LOL, glad you approved. 😉 Of everything, I mean~

      Unlike Penny or Lysander, Ophelia becoming a vampire just fit. No regrets on her part!

  2. Okay I was off with my Bianca prediction, but I KNEW Ophelia would end up a vampire! Though I wish it didn’t have to be under such awful circumstances. Still, this will make everyone happy and save them some major heartache down the line. It was sweet (well, minus all the dark and wicked things 😂) to see Rhys and Ophelia finally get together (and fun to see him in his fae form!)

    Um but speaking of heartache… HGR 😱😭 But perhaps there’s hope. Could his sacrifice of trying to save Ophelia help break his dark curse at last? That’s my hope 🤞

    Laughed seeing Bianca with Graham… nice to see she’s expanding her horizons with a new sort of role play 😂 I guess she and O can share tips now 😉

    And I got a small fraction of my Straud group hug! Better than nothing, but I will continue to dream of more 😂

    1. Ophelia’s dream finally came true–granted, not the way she wanted it to, but it all worked out in the end. And it will make everyone happy in the long run, including both her and Rhys, not to mention Bianca. Rhys’s skin clashed so bad with his robe though, I was giggling when shooting that.

      Might be onto something with HGR and his curse. 😉

      As for Bianca and Graham, LOL. Bianca has an eternal love of roleplay, apparently, even if the flavor changes. 😈

    1. Ophelia thought she’d end up human too–but nope, the first eager turned vampire in Fangs, LOL. She’ll be happy for sure. Rhys isn’t immortal, but fae do live centuries before fading away and then being reincarnated as new baby fae.

  3. This was probably my favorite chapter of all. There were sooo many things going on!

    Walking in on Bianca and Graham was hysterical and Bianca’s casual, oh we need to set up a schedule comment cracked me up. But that makes sense that she would be the dominatrix in that scenario. Graham would do anything for her. So it’s actually kinda sweet even though a bit perverted. But they have lived a long time. Gotta try everything – amiright.

    Then there was profession of love and how hard it was for Rhys to accept and I noticed he didn’t say it back. Too afraid to. But then the awesome dirty bathroom sex. He also would do anything for her. He was so vulnerable with Ophelia. You almost forget he is fae. I don’t recall ever seeing him fae’d out before.

    Then when she compared his and Finn’s dark spears of manhood and he felt like second choice again. I felt so bad for him…and thennnn…..dun dun dunnnn

    Ophelia fell and Batty tried to save her I think…but did she really kill him? Is that what happens to witches when they die? Sort of like vampires turn to ash? They just disappear? Hmmmm. That was very unexpected.

    And seeing Rhys fae’d out with her in his arms…awww

    And then Graham saved her by giving her what she has wanted her whole life and a sweet father and son reunion. I wonder if Bianca is okay with her becoming immortal. I would thinkmshe would be. But it seems she may have really been super upset and stressed out.

    I am going to red it again…❤️❤️❤️

    I really thought that Dru and Sunflower might be my favs but it turns out that Gal and Bas and Rhys and Ophelia stole my heart. ❤️👏👏👏

    1. Eeeee, I always love finding out that a chapter is a new favorite! I’ve felt a bit bad for Rhys and Ophelia because I got the impression they weren’t (m)any people’s favorite, so I’m delighted to hear they’re tied with Gal and Bas for you. ❤ ❤ I love them too.

      Graham would absolutely try anything once, and with Bianca he'd be happy to try it again and again, LOL. It's very true that as long-lived as they are, they've got to try new things to keep their (sex) lives interesting, and boy, does Graham have plenty of things to introduce Bianca to. There's a reason she was so excited when talking to Benny about him!

      Rhys was shocked at O's profession of love–it was genuinely something he never expected or even dared to hope for. But he loves her and would do anything for her. He definitely has a complex about being second-choice and unchosen…but Ophelia's helping him work through those issues.

      Bianca's undoubtedly relieved that her daughter is immortal now, even if she has mixed feelings about respecting Lysander's wishes. She'd absolutely rather have a vampire daughter than a dead human one though, 100%.

      Love that you're going to reread! ❤ ❤ Thanks for the sweet comments!

  4. I facepalmed when Ophelia compared his “dark spear of manhood” to Finn’s. Like, seriously?! I know she’s weird but come on O, you don’t compare a man’s manhood to his brother’s right to his face!
    I figured Ophelia would become a vampire before the end of the season and naturally it had to happen in such a dramatic fashion! That was really cool.
    But what happened to Batty??? 😮 I’ll miss the little mongrel. Was he somehow harmed by Rhys using his fae powers too close to him?
    Major feels for the father and son reunion! Now we just need all three siblings to reconcile. Fingers crossed, it will happen right after Gal gives birth like some circle of life stuff bringing them together. 😀

    1. It was a really, really dumb mistake for Ophelia to make–what she had with Rhys wasn’t just “research” anymore, like it was with Finn, and an observation like that was totally inappropriate. At least she tried to cover for it right away, but it was already too late. 😱

      Glad you approve of her dramatic turn to vampirehood! ❤ If anyone should be a vampiress, it's that strange girl, LOL.

      You'll (eventually) find out what happened to Batty, I promise! 😈 As for the Straud kids, well…Gal's chapter is next, and a new Straud/Strider will be born!

  5. Dark WitcHazard: Yes Bianca dominating people feels too good! It males everything feel ten times better! Graham totally would make a great submissive break especially for Bianca! Rhys is really embracing this part of himself as well I’m so proud! Darn I thought you were going to crush us all with Ophelia’s death I guess she did die in a sense but you know what I mean! Aw shucks I was totally waiting for Benny to find out about Grianca’s pregnancy and totally take a jab at Bianca about replacing her human family members with immortal ones but now Ophelia is a vampire which means she’ll never know this loss again! Unless Deo’s children come out human then she’ll lose them! HGR finally got rid of his dog body now I’m certain he’ll go adopt Velvet Paws and then somehow she’ll turn human!

    Lover WitcHazard: Never talk about previous conquests with your main squeeze O especially if they are related!
    😝

    Shipper WitcHazard: I was about to send the Battle Ship Armada after you if you ruin this ship by complicate death glad you resolved both!

    Emotional WitcHazard: Well I’m glad because she genuinely wanted Rhys to work through his family issues she got what she wanted for so long and Rhys as a bonus! I was worried as to why Bianca wouldn’t turn her but I forgot she was pregnant and seeing your daughter dying probably wasn’t the best thing for the baby or Bianca’s emotional state!

    1. OMG, I love how Dark has the most to say about this chapter, rofl. Never change, Dark. ❤ Bianca is definitely having fun with Graham, LOL. And I debated how to have Ophelia almost die–I considered having her get hit by a car or drown (too on-the-nose?), but a balcony fall seemed suitably dramatic. 😉

      Lover has really good advice, LOL. At least Ophelia learned, albeit the hard way…

      I think Lysander dying was plenty for this gen. 😉 I'm not so cruel! And Rhys would never have resolved anything with his family if he lost Ophelia like that… As for Bianca not turning her, she wanted to respect Lysander's wishes–but Graham made the executive decision instead.

      Also I like the idea of Belladonna Blackthorne being passed down from generation to generation~ And Rhys and Ophelia will have…interesting kids, I promise you that.

      SORRY ABOUT THE CUT SEX SCENE, rip 50 ridiculous sex shots I didn't use, rofl (and also another batch of cute romantic shots I couldn't use in Rhys's later chapter bc pre-vampire, damn it). I added that one bathtub shot of Rhys and O to make up for it at least?? But the scene really would've been unnecessary, even if it would've actually justified the 5 lobster thermidors~

  8. Now that’s one hell of a chapter! Poor Ophelia, it must be terrifying to fall of a balcony like this. 😦 Of course, she deserved some punishment for the mean things she said to Rhys, but that was a bit harsh. It’s a good thing that she finally became the beautiful vampiress she always wanted to be, though – and it’s even better that Rhys made up with Graham. 🙂 But why does Rhys apologize to Ophelia so much? Because he wasn’t there to catch her when the railing came down? Or does he probably think she jumped off the balcony to kill herself because he ditched her earlier that night, right after she had declared her love for him?

    Other than that, I wonder if we are going to see HGR in his truly marvelous original form (that ass!) anytime soon. After all, Batty risked his life when he desperately tried to save his favorite minion. Perhaps that brave act of self-sacrifice was enough to break his curse? If he became human again, he certainly would pick up the cute puppy he had to leave behind!

    1. Rhys definitely thinks Ophelia deserves a very different sort of punishment, LOL–but a more enjoyable one at Lord Blackthorne’s own hands. As for the apologies, Rhys had locked her out of his room (though he was right to be upset, with Ophelia putting her foot in her mouth like that), and didn’t want anything to do with her the rest of the night–if he’d been with her, he either could’ve found her sooner or maybe prevented it from happening entirely, at least in his mind. Wings and all that.

      At the same time, everyone has their own sexual history (or lack thereof, I suppose) and she shouldn’t be ashamed of it…but yikes, when it’s his own brother and he already has a complex about it? 😬 Really bad call! But all’s well that ends well~

      You will see HGR in some form again, promise. 😈 (And I know at least a couple others are clamoring for his ass, rofl.) He did try to save his minion’s life, which is something he never would’ve done in the past–and he totally would swipe that pup if he had hands again!

      And Graham always has doctors/staff/professionals who are familiar with vampires and/or other supernaturals. He has a pretty vast web of influence (and a stupid amount of money).

      LOL, O described Finn's manhood in the book she was writing and Finn remarked on it in one of her early chapters. So maybe she was trying to commit it to memory for reference material? Whoops.
