Chapter 1: The Vision and Decision (Salazar's POV in the time of the Founders)
My heart dropped into my stomach as I heard the screams that were uttered from small but full pink lips. Beautiful emerald orbs widen in terror, and glistened wit unshed tears. The room was small and only had the bear essentials. The emerald eyed creature was thin but well formed. The skin was golden tanned and flawless. The face was effeminate but was enough to take my breath away and cease my heart beat. I saw the creature's beautiful body tremble with fear and as I watched on, I understood why immediately.
Standing over him was a huge beast of a man. He was red and very portly. His hair was receding and his eyes were beady. He had undone his belt and the creature at his feet was begging and pleading to not be beaten. The poor sweet creature was treated worse than any house elf and this set me into a rage. I wanted to reach out and help him. To steal him away and hold him to me, vowing that no one would ever harm him again…
"SALAZAR!" A voice roared from the doorway, causing me to start, fall onto my ass from my seat at my desk. My piles of students' papers fluttered around me and my classroom echoed with my curses. The voice chuckled and I glared at the silhouette of the Headmaster, Head of Gryffindor House and DADA Professor, Godric Gryffindor.
"Damn you Godric," I hissed at him while glaring daggers at him. If looks could kill, I thought sweetly. You would be the first to go Ric… "Haven't you learned that you knock before entering? I swear by Merlin that you are worse than the students." Godric looked at me and grinned.
"Oh come on Lazar," He said, causing me to glare at him again when he butchered my name. "Get that rod out of your ass and let's be off. Hogsmeade weekend happens today."
"I wonder time and time again if you can become any more idiotic Ric." I said as cleared the mess with my wand, dusted my robes and composed myself. "But then you come up with something new everyday that boggles the mind. I'm surprised that I still have my sanity."
"Oh come on, you got to really loosen up." Godric said to me as he fell into step beside me as I left the dungeons and made it for the Great Hall. "When was the last time you got laid?" I glared at him for his bold, yet rash question. Did it really matter? I thought. Wasn't what happened in my life, my business alone? Who died and made Godric the all powerful know it all? I growled at him and remained silent. Don't get me wrong, I preferred men to women but I just was not interested right now. Something within me told me that it wasn't my time. That my mate wasn't here and I was willing to wait. Oh this wasn't the first time I had been having the visions of my emerald eyed beauty. For seventeen years I have been experiencing them. I saw memories, I felt his feelings and anything he went through, I felt as if I were there, right beside him. But why was I having visions of the future? What's going on?
"Lazar, are you ok? You zoned out on me again! What in the hells is the matter with you?" I shook my head clear and looked at the Headmaster, who was sitting next to me and was obviously sneaking my breakfast little by little. No matter how many times I would tell him to knock it off, Godric never listened and continued to irritate me. Maybe he was put on the Earth to make my life a living hell. I thought as I buttered up some toast and sipped on my tea. I was wool gathering and my lips curled into a smirk when I saw Godric's hand try to sneak off my sausage links. I waited until his hand was close enough, pretending I didn't notice then…
"FUCK!!" Godric roared, causing the school to look at him with shocked eyes. I hid my smirk behind my cup while I was laughing my ass off on the inside. I taught him the same thing my mother taught my father when he tried to steal her food. The look on Godrics' face was priceless and I know that that was going to be one memory I would keep with me always. Rowena and Helga noticed the laughter in my eyes but stayed quiet. Godric looked at me but remained quiet and to his own plate. In triumph, I speared a link and ate with relish. I finished my breakfast and got up from the table, making a bee line for the library. I had to find out what was the reason behind the visions. A few would have been over looked but seventeen years? That was something that just can't be swept under the rug.
Of course, even though I had tried to place the vision in the back of my mind but it was in vain. It seemed so real….so…vivid…It had me thinking how can anyone be so heartless toward one so young? And this was not the first time I've had these visions. I've seen images of an infant crying over the corpses of his parents, saw when his parents protected him, seen the monster who had robbed the child of the only family who had ever loved him. I even saw his accidental magic and saw when he started speaking to snakes! This impressed me. As well as his power…I knew that he was destined for greatness. He just needed guidance. Something told me that he wasn't getting the help he needed. Why, why were they not helping him? They were blinded by his fame! My mind hissed. This can't continue. I have to find a way to straighten all of this. I stood up from my seat and made my way to my personal library. Hopefully I will find something that will help…
I flipped through almost all the books I had and my table was looking like a storm went through it. I was maddened at the fact that, although I had searched to the point of night sweats, that my searches were in vain. Despite that, I wasn't willing to give up. It's not my way. It never has been. I knew that this was a grave matter and that it needed to be looked into. I sighed in frustration, for I had searched for countless hours. It was morning when I began and now, I look out the window and hissed. It's dusk. I was ready to call it a day until a book fell on my head. What the..? I looked down and saw a maroon colored book. I opened it and smiled. Inside were notes on how visions and feelings were exchanged and felt by another. I had found it and realized that it was a form of a bond. Partners who were destined to be would even feel their mates in every way. I noticed that with my bond. I was needed there and could not remain here and rot. I prayed that I would get to my other half. Some day my beautiful one, I thought, and some way, I will come to you…
