SEARCHING FOR A MATE - Season 6 Episode 71
The moment that we all made it back to Gloriana’s private office, I knew that Trinity hadn’t even noticed what had happened. She hadn’t figured out that she looked different, sounded different, none of it. She thought that everything was the same and that she had only won over the others because she had been persuasive.
Don’t get me wrong, she really had been persuasive and convincing. But that wasn’t all it was, though. Part of her charm, or rather her power to convince, had actually been the pressure she was exerting on the others. All of the dark Fae had been feeling the force of that atmospheric difference that I had felt. Only, I had a feeling that they were feeling it more strongly because she had been directing it at them.
She didn’t seem to understand that there was anything different about her at all. I doubt that she even knew what she looked like right now. Granted, there had been no mirrors for her to look at during this whole time, so seeing the wings on her back would be a little hard.
Speaking of those wings, when I had walked up to her and put my arm around her waist next to the barrier between the light Fae realm and the dark Fae realm, I had expected the wings to feel solid against my body. However, they had actually been no more substantial than light. They passed right through my body as they twitched and fluttered about her back, yet they also tickled me with every little movement. I was still wondering if they would be permanent or if they would go away at some point. That was something that I think all of us were thinking about right now.
“Trinity, how did you do that?” Shane was pointing at her and looking as surprised as we had all been feeling.
“How did I do what, Shane?” She asked him with confusion in her eyes. “Do you mean taking their magic from them?”
“No, not that. I am talking about your, well, Goddess form. That is the only thing that I can call it. How did you do that?” He was saying what we had all been wanting to say but hadn’t known when to say it.
“I don’t know what you mean, Shane. All I did was call my power to me and start glowing. I didn’t do anything else.” She shrugged her shoulders and smirked like she was slightly uncomfortable.
“I think that Shane is wondering how you made yourself look more beautiful, more angelic or maybe godly is the right word.” Shawn tried to help his brother.
“Yeah, and the change in your voice.” David added nodding.
“And let us not forget her wings.” Vincent was grinning at her.
“WINGS?!” She visibly jumped when she heard that word. I knew that she hadn’t even realized it yet.
“You didn’t know?” Valerian asked her. “We all assumed that you had chosen what form to take and that you knew what you looked like.”
“That’s right. I think we all just guessed that there was nothing going on that you weren’t in complete control of.” Gloriana added.
“Trinity, my love, go look in that mirror over there.” I told her as I pointed to the mirror that was across the room from us. “Go see the changes while they are still inside of you.”
“R..R..Reece? I didn’t know that anything was different. I just thought that I was glowing.”
“I know. Come on.”
I put my arm around her shoulders, once again feeling those wings tickling my flesh. It felt like they were moving a lot faster than they had been before. That was probably because she was nervous right now. That made sense to me at least.
With slow, halting steps, I took my Little Bunny over to the mirror so that she could see what she looked like. I think she was afraid of what she might see, most likely she was afraid of looking like a different person. That seemed like something that my adorable Little Bunny would be afraid of.
“Huh?!” She gasped in shock when she stepped in front of the reflective glass and took in her appearance. I saw her eyes moving in the mirror. She was looking at her own eyes, her face, her wings, her entire body.
The moment that her eyes met mine in the reflection, I made sure to show her support and love. The smile I gave her said that no matter what she looked like, I would love her forever. And forever was what I meant since we were not likely to die anytime soon.
“Reece? What is happening to me?” Her voice trembled as she tried to reach behind her and feel the wings on her back. She couldn’t grab them, she couldn’t touch them at all really, because her hand passed right through them. However, I know she could feel that frantic fluttering as she moved her fingers around inside of them.
“You’ve ascended Trinity. You already knew that though, didn’t you? You have ascended to being a Goddess now and this is the form you take when showing that Goddess form to others.” I tried to be supportive and understanding so that she wasn’t frightened anymore.
“How do I make it go away?” She wasn’t looking at me anymore, so I was guessing that she was asking herself. Still, I gave her an answer so that I might be of some assistance to her.
“Just try doing the same thing that you did to bring it on. Whatever you thought, whatever you were doing, do it again only in reverse. I am guessing that you thought about showing the dark Fae that you were a Goddess, so think about hiding that fact now.”
“I..I guess that would work.” She chuckled to herself as if she thought it was funny that she hadn’t figured that part out for herself. In her defense though, she was a little overwhelmed and shocked.
I watched as she closed her eyes and started to think. It was clear that she was thinking very hard, concentrating on the task that she was trying to accomplish. She was doing her best to make sure that she hid the goddess part of her from the rest of the world right now.
As she concentrated and focused, I saw the light that seemed to be coming from inside of her fade. She was beginning to look a little more normal. The wings were disappearing, and the glowing, luminescent color was gone completely. However, I could see that her face and skin still looked different.
No amount of concentrating and focusing seemed to be making all of that ethereal beauty disappear. My Little Bunny has always been beautiful. She was the most beautiful woman in the world in my eyes and the eyes of many others. But now, there was something more to her now. If I had to estimate here, I would say that she was three to four times more beautiful than she had already been.
The shape of her eyes, the curve of her lips, the formation of her cheek bones, they were all perfect. Not a single flaw was to be found anywhere on her face, neck, arms, or any other part of her skin that was exposed. She was still unearthly in her beauty, and I don’t think that was ever going to change.
“It didn’t work!” She seemed upset as she opened her eyes and looked in the mirror again.
“You’re beautiful, Trinity, just like you always have been.” I assured her as I wrapped my arms around her from behind. “You are perfect, inside and out. Don’t ever forget how much I love you.” I kissed her cheek then, offering her my support and love.
Thankfully, the meeting between us all ended shortly after that. I was pretty sure that my Little Bunny needed to rest after everything that had happened today. She needed to take it easy and think about what had changed for her, not just her looks, but everything. And I was going to be right there with her, helping her along the way. I was never going to abandon her.
I kept my arm around her shoulders the entire time. All the way from Gloriana’s private study up to our room in our private residence. I didn’t let her go. I think I needed to be comforted by her as much as she needed to be comforted by me.. We were here for each other.
