Letter "X" - Xenogamy

Calm down.  I know you're a bit surprised I've - ahem - impressed my will upon you so that you are here in hell with me.  I'm not detaining you for long.  Some of you will be returning on a more permanent basis anyway so get familiar with the surroundings.  And yes, I love the flames and fire.  Brimstone, not so much.

You should know that what my Harvestor and his lady love are doing is wrong.
Dead wrong.

Neither Cleansers or Harvestors are supposed to love.  Makes for bad soul collecting business.  My soul devouring suffers.  I get angry and do things.  You guys suffer, as the several people who died in that apartment fire found out.

Plus, a Cleanser and a Harvestor - ugh, I can't even say that word.  Sharing in that ridiculous "L" emotion is akin to xenogamy.  Then they'll cross pollinate with each other making little Cleanser-Harvestor offspring that I probably won't have free access to.  So you see, me breaking them apart and devouring Abby's soul is good for everyone.  You get that right?

Well, I'll take your wide-eyed stare as a sign of understanding.  You are dismissed****

I think Drakar just tried to rationalize what he is doing.  Unbelievable!!!!

    1. Thanks, J.L. And NO, neither do I. I can think of lots of places I'd rather be on a permanent bases and in the pits of hell does not make the list.

  3. Um, it's really difficult having come into Abby and Basil's story as late as I did. I obviously need to go back to the beginning and catch up.

    I've left an award for you on my blog. Please stop by when you have a chance.

    1. Good for you, Alex. All he has are lame excuses.

    1. Thanks, Raelyn. As bad as Drakar is, it was interesting to put this post together showing something slightly different...though he's still just a bad dude.

  7. Quite full of himself. Love the thought of little "Cleanser-Harvestor offspring". I say, hands off to him!

    1. You know, I wonder what it would be like to have some powers from heaven and some powers from hell wrapped up in a little innocent thing?

    1. Yeah, Drakar can work out some ridiculous thoughts.

  10. I am most impressed by how you wove an "X" word into today's post. Not so impressed by how truly evil Drakar is. I hope he gets what's coming to him.

    1. Thank you, Susan. Drakar thinks he has this whole thing wrapped up with the smug way he tried to rationalize his actions, but we'll see how things go for him in NEVERLOVE.

  11. That Drakar - can't leave him alone for a minute! Now I have to go look up xenogamy, which is maybe related to monogamy, but maybe not :)

    1. LOL!! Xenogamy refers to cross-pollinating in the plant world but Drakar sees humans as little more than a salad buffet of souls so he used it regarding Harvestors and Cleansers.

  12. I can understand his repulsion. lol Great excerpt and very creative use of X.

  14. Sounds like he wants to find love.

  15. I just love the voice. And I think Clarissa may have a point...

  16. I kind of like him. He's quirky and rude. lol

  17. Oh, this looks like something I will have to take the time to read--after just two more letters. :-)

  18. So cool! I love it. I'm almost convinced too!

  19. I'm not buying his line . . . but he certainly has the whole "justification" thing down pat.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Justification seems to be his great gift! But sometimes justification is just lying to ourselves! Thanks for visiting my post today, Roland

  21. Typical. Trying to make out he's rational. Loved the bit about cross pollination.

  22. Oh, no he didn't! No fair using wit to distract us from hating you, Drakar.
