Sorceress, enchantress, deceiver, murdererâ€”Iâ€™ve been called all those and more, some that might make you blush. Lucky for me, I couldnâ€™t care less what people think about me. Iâ€™ve had my sights set on one thing for the last thousand years, and thatâ€™s all that matters. Iâ€™ll do whatever it takes to find the cauldron, even if it means taking on a partner. They call him a knight in shining armor. For me, heâ€™s my golden ticket. He fell into my lap, quite literally, and now heâ€™s going to help me get what I want.
I donâ€™t play particularly well with others, but heâ€™s the best shot Iâ€™ve got, so Iâ€™ll hop on that train and hope it gets me where I need to go. He thinks heâ€™s going to crack my shell and see whatâ€™s on the inside, like maybe thereâ€™s a warm gooey center to make up for the hard exterior. Heâ€™s in for a world of disappointment. Everything soft and delicate about me became rough and hardened a long time ago. Iâ€™m Morgan Le Fay, and Iâ€™m the villain in this story.

â€œDonâ€™t be absurd. Iâ€™m not having sex in Magdaâ€™s house, and I told you it wasnâ€™t happening again, anyway. I only agreed to fuel your magic that one time, nothing more.â€ My smile died as the words came out, and Knightâ€™s playful manner charged to something visceral.
The air in the room thickened, and my heartbeat hammered in my throat. Knightâ€™s lips lifted seductively as he placed the pad of his thumb against the pulse point on my neck.
â€œThatâ€™s not what this says. The thrumming of your heart tells me just the suggestion of having me inside you excites you. You want me as much as I want you. Lucky for you, I had no plans of ravaging you tonight. The noises youâ€™ll make when Iâ€™m inside you would terrify poor Magda.â€
I took in a steadying breath through my nose, trying not to broadcast how profoundly Knightâ€™s words had affected me.
â€œI donâ€™t think we need to fear her, but I also donâ€™t think sheâ€™s so meek as she would have us believe. She knew about you, that you had suffered. I have no doubt she knew plenty about me as well.â€
His features hardened, jaw muscles contracting. â€œEven more reason to be on our guard. Now, get ready for bedâ€”the sooner this is over, the sooner I can fuck you properly.â€ He spun me around and placed a sharp swat on my rear.
I yipped in surprise and glowered at him, which only spurred him on. We washed up, and while I stayed in my clothes, Knight stripped to his underwear. Had he been any other man, I would have openly gawked without any problem. Considering our unique situation, I didnâ€™t want to give him any ammunition to use against me. He already knew he affected me, the last thing I needed was for him to catch me openly ogling him.
Same as the night before, as soon as I crawled into bed, Knight yanked me against him. I glared back at him with as much annoyance as I could muster.
â€œYou know, not everyone likes to sleep all smashed together.â€
â€œWhatever,â€ he murmured into my hair. â€œYou slept so soundly in my arms last night, your snoring could have woken the dead. It was a miracle we survived at all.â€
I elbowed him in the gut with indignation. â€œI do not snore, you giant flea bag.â€
Knight burst out laughing and pulled me in even tighter. His soft chuckle close to my ear made my skin prickle with awareness. I attempted to remain stiff and surly, but Knight had a way of withering away my resolve. With his thumb lazily stroking back and forth across my belly, he whispered to me softly.
â€œNot only do you not snore, youâ€™re even more beautiful when you sleep. I hadnâ€™t thought it was possible, but when you are drifting at peace, you look like an angel.â€
For so long, I had accepted my reputation and played my part well. I fed into the rumors, and people saw me as a heartless bitch, treating me as such.
To some extent, Iâ€™d begun to believe it was true.
Until Iâ€™d met Knight.
He made me remember the person I used to be. Even more confusing, he made me wonder if I wanted to be her again. He made me think and feel a lot of thingsâ€”all of them complex and terrifying. I wasnâ€™t sure what to do with any of it. I certainly wasnâ€™t ready to share those feelingsâ€”nor the tear that slipped from my eye at his words.
