Kane walked in long strides following the trail Duncan’s aura had left behind. Thousands of scenarios playing in his head. How would he approach the subject and would Duncan be willing to talk with him knowing they were both in love with the same person? Almost before his eyes settled on Duncan he felt her presence --the sweet scent of her skin crashed into him causing a ripple of emotions to emerge from deep inside him. The flames came alive once more filling him with a consuming desire for her touch. It was as if every inch of his body had been awaken from deep sleep-- He allowed himself a moment to savor the delicious waves that washed over him erasing Allison from his mind, body and soul. Meg was all he wanted, all he knew and all he would ever want.
“ Hey there Duncan!” Kane sounded breathless and excited, his eyes searching for his Fury goddess.
“ Hello Kane.” Duncan’s insides felt scrambled. His world was slowly turning upside down as he doubted Meg’s involvement with Kane ( could she be seeing Kane behind his back?) Duncan found Kane’s presence instigating. He kept his eyes fixed on his hands as he cracked his knuckles.
“ I would like to uh---” Kane’s mind and heart were racing as he tried to find a way to start a conversation but as he got closer to where Duncan stood he could feel Meg’s aura and scent get stronger and more concentrated which made him crazy with anticipation. “ She’s here!” He thought, a bright smile spreading across his face. Kane came to a stop within arms length from where Duncan stood. Kane’s eyes followed the aura trail right to its source which brought instant rage that overtook him ( Duncan was drenched in Meg’s aura. Her scent was all over him) and he lunged toward Duncan his body exploding into full warrior mode. Duncan sensing the danger jumped seconds before Kane came crashing into the tree. The intensity of his rage was close to diabolical. Kane’s eyes mirrored the anguish which threatened to drown his soul and heart from the inside out. Duncan just watched as Kane’s aura increased in size and power readying to detonate and destroy virtually every living thing within a large proximity. Sensing what was about to unfold the trees cracked and moaned as they quickly uprooted themselves clearing out a large open area simulating an arena for the two fighters. Kane’s rage multiplied each time his eyes fell upon Duncan’s Meg scented body. Her essence aggravated his arrogance driving his ego and impulses out of control. He wanted one thing and one thing only. Blood. Duncan’s blood.
Duncan’s blood was approaching boiling point. It was Kane who had brought pain and misery with his selfishness and non existent regard for others. His rational self and wisdom have taken a back seat and he has allowed his animal instincts and impulses to take control , Duncan thought. The dark intentions that tainted Kane were crystal clear. He was out for blood. Why? Because he was not content with having Allison. He wanted Meg too and Duncan was all that stood between them. The realization hit him hard and his body transformed into a blazing grey star of fire. His eyes were pure gleaming liquid silver spheres whose center throbbed in rhythmic beats unleashing a whirling sword as he fixed his eyes on Kane.
