The First Furyan

Chapter Three, Walking The Path

They had moved her so she was no longer bound spread eagle face down on the bed. Arms locked above her head as she was forced to kneel on the bed legs spread wide. Her back was afire in pain blood weeping down it as she tried not to black out. She wasn't alone in the room she could hear the sound of two people entering behind her. She didn't turn pretended it didn't matter to her at all, after all what could she do about it?

She knew more unpleasantries were coming that she didn't have much time. She had to find a way free, wait for the right moment. She was afraid she wasn't going to get that moment though. Vincent knew how good she was, that she had skills when it came to fighting. That when she was younger she played games where she and her friends would tie each other up so they could try and get free on their own. When her father found out he'd laughed and given her some helpful tips that had her winning the game every time hands down.

Whenever they planned to move her she was drugged so she couldn't put up any kind of fight. It didn't leave her with any options and without a doubt Vincent and his two little friends wouldn't be letting her go alive. She tried not to think about that too much or she'd panic and that would do her no good. She had to keep a clear head, she had to find a way to get free, to get out.

"Hello my own, looking lovely as always." Vincent said his guest chuckling at the joke.

She knew the sound of that hyena laughter all to well it was Jason with his icy cold blue eyes and dirty blond hair. He was the cruelest of Vincent and his friends there was a picture of his cold face in the dictionary under the words sociopath, sadist, and chauvinist. Kind of man that believed a woman should wait on her man hand and foot, fuck when he wanted, how he wanted, and take a beating just cause he's in the mood. It did not bode well for her or her well being if Vincent had brought him.

"I can see why you wanted to go threw all the trouble to keep what was yours Vincent. Beautiful even in her suffering, I'd like her back if I may?" Jason asked Vincent.

"Of course, you only had to wait so I could claim it first." Vincent informed him.

She closed her eyes tightly at the words her ass still afire in pain and sore as hell from his violent 'claiming'. It wasn't the first time for her, but she had prayed it would be the last. She was beginning to think praying really was just pointless a waist of her time and energy. She could hear the sounds of them disrobing behind her sounds of zippers and cloths falling heavily to the floor.

She forced herself to remain calm as they approached her on the bed panicking would do her no good. She felt the bed give behind her as Jason climbed on biting back a hiss as his hand traveled over her back opening up the wounds there. She felt him gathering up the fresh blood heard him licking it off his fingers as she tried to force herself to relax. This was going to happen whether she wanted it to or not, it was best to relax and try to minimize the damage.

The bed gave in front of her and she lowered her face looking at Vincent from under her lashes. He was naked too as he climbed onto the bed before her and it wasn't until then that she knew exactly what was about to happen. It was the same moment Jason forces himself inside her body breaking past any and all resistance violently. The scream was kept inside her throat knowing such sounds were only going to be enjoyed.

Then Vincent was lining himself up in front of her and she bit her lip hard enough to make it bleed keeping in the scream when he forced his way inside her cunt. The sudden intense pressure on her g-spot started to feel insanely good until they began their violent thrusting. Still she was silent not letting a sound pass her lips, that was until the tearing started. The sudden blinding agony tearing through her ass with each violent thrust of Jason's.

The first thing Lex was aware of was strong hands and a rock hard immovable body next to hers. She tensed to fight when she realized she was unbound until she opened her eyes. She could see Riddick clearly even in the pitch black of the room and he released his hold on her arms when he noticed her return. He opened his mouth to say something but she was moving up over the bed and into the bathroom.

Her dinner came up quickly and violently flushing it away so she didn't have to look at it or smell it. Standing over the sink she splashed water over her face trying to banish the images. She didn't realize she had a full body tremble going on until she looked at herself in the mirror. Did I have to do this tonight of all nights, she thought to herself bitterly, Riddick is going to ask.

In fact Riddick was ready with something for her to drink though she didn't see Tess or hear the door. Probably too busy vomiting, she thought to herself snidely, at least he didn't try and help. She hated being sick but she hated being sick in front of people more. He just handed her the drink as she sat next to him on the bed, downing about half the glass.

"Better?" Riddick asked her and she laughed hollowly.

"I don't think that's an option." She told him roughly.

"What do you mean?" Riddick asked her.

"I'm going to assume Aereon didn't tell you. I've been dreaming about what would've happened if I'd stayed on Earth. It gets a little farther each time." She explained.

"You mean you are dreaming about your death?" Riddick asked her sounding very displeased.

"Well it hasn't actually gotten that far yet." She replied.

"And just how far has it gotten?" Riddick asked her tightly.

"Okay let me…explain something to you first. Are you familiar with BDSM?" She asked him only to get blank look. "Okay it stands for Bondage, Dominance/Submission, and Sadism/Masochism. Basically our relationship was filled with that. Inside the bedroom, he was the Master and I was the slave. There were boundaries, limits given before hand and safe words to stop things if they go to far." She explained.

"You did this willingly?" Riddick asked her seeming a bit surprised.

"Yes, there can be something very freeing about not having any responsibilities. I had some limits that he didn't like, things he kept pushing me about. It was what started the end of our relationship." She explained.

"What was that?" Riddick asked her.

"Mainly he wanted anal sex. After being forced against my will, I would have to trust someone a hell of a lot to do something like that. I told Vincent I was no where near trusting him that much." She explained shuddering.

"You alright?" Riddick asked her.

"Yeah just remembering stuff from the dreams." She explained. "I can't stop remembering it. It was so real, like I was really there." She explained.

Riddick pulled her up against him Lex starting in surprise until she relaxed and rested her head on his chest. It took a moment but the sensations from the bond began to fill her the trembling in her body slowly stopping. She sighed happily burrowing closer to Riddick's warm body unconsciously feeling safe and comfortable.

"Better?" Riddick asked her again.

"Yeah, thanks." She replied softly.

"My pleasure." Riddick told her chest rumbling with a chuckle.

"Yeah, I bet." She joked. "What time is it anyways? No clocks in this fucking flying palace." She complained.

"It's just coming up on dawn. I'll have them get you a person chrono." Riddick assured her.

"Well, I don't know about you, but I'm definitely not getting any more sleep." She explained to him.

"Not surprising. How about grabbing breakfast on the go and heading out into the city?" Riddick asked her.

"Yeah just let me take a shower first. A nice long hot shower." She told him with a sigh.

"Alright, I have a few things to take care of first before we leave anyways. No scrubbing your skin off." He admonished her as he lifted her to her feet on the floor.

Her eyes widened in surprise before turning and throwing him a pouty look that got a chuckle out of him. Standing he prowled over to her hand cupping the back of her neck to pull her in for a kiss before letting her go. "Go on and take that long hot shower." He told her turning her and smacking her on the ass hard enough to make her yelp in surprise. Before she even knew what she was doing she'd jumped atop him knocking him down and pinning him under her on the bed.

"This wasn't part of the plan Lex." Riddick admonished her in a rough voice.

He rocked his hips into her erection brushing up against her in warning and she gasped jumping off him. She ran into the bathroom and closed the door leaning back against it hands over her gaping mouth. What the fuck was that Lexy, she thought to herself, since when to you go around pouncing on guys?

"Oh my god I pounced on Riddick!" She said aloud to herself in a shocked voice. "I pounced on Riddick and lived more importantly I lived without getting my brains fucked out, willingly or unwillingly."

The knocking on the door behind her made her start standing and turning to face the door in annoyance like it had knocked on itself.

"Are you alright Lex?" Riddick asked from behind the door.

"Yeah, just getting ready to start my shower. I'll meet up with you in the freaky ass throne room in about an hour." She told him.

"Alright, see you then." Riddick told her after chuckling at how she'd described the room. This talking aloud to yourself thing is going to get you into trouble around people like Riddick, she thought to herself. He just might've been listening to what you were saying, she rolled her eyes at her self and that paranoid thought. So what if he had been?

Her shower was a half hour long the water so hot she was steaming when she stepped out. She smirked at the sight in the mirror remembering the scene when Riddick had saved 'Kyra' on Crematoria. Her smile fell as she remembered what had happened to 'Kyra' on this very ship. She had always thought that killing Jack or 'Kyra' off had been the biggest mistake the writers made. It was strange being here now with thoughts like those.

She had Tess put her hair in a tight French braid so it was out of her face before grabbing her goggles and sliding them on. After packing a small bag of necessity's to take with her. She put on a pair of black pants that fit her tightly but stretched to allow movement. A black bra and tank top topped off the outfit Tess bringing a cloak much like the one Riddick wore in Chronicles of Riddick when he returned to New Mecca.

She chuckle when she glanced at herself in the mirror, she looked like Riddick. Or Jack, she frowned at the thought wondering if Riddick thought the same thing when he looked at her now sometimes. She wasn't sure if she liked that thought or not, not going to figure that out any time soon Lexy, she thought to herself. Riddick was waiting for her in the throne room slouched lazily in the throne one leg thrown over an arm comfortably. There were scattered crowds of Necro's some standing around guarding or talking others moving to and fro, she spotted Dame Vaako and her Lord immediately.

A wicked grin crossed her face as she moved threw the room crowd parting for her immediately. Riddick's brows rose when he saw her obviously aware something was up and he lowered his leg to the floor about to move to her. She shook her head minutely and he paused watching in amusement as she sauntered over to him. She really wished she had eyes in the back of her head or something at the moment to see what the look on Dame Vaako's face was when she did this.

Riddick's eyebrows rose in surprise when she walked up to him and parted his legs kneeling between them hooking her legs around his feet. Her body pressed to his she kissed his chest running her hands up his sides. Riddick's arms came around her running down her sides to grip her ass pressing her more firmly against him. He nuzzled his head into her neck and when he spoke his lips were right next to her ear words only meant for her.

"What kind of game are you playing Lex?" Riddick asked her in an amused voice.

"Very casually glance around the room and tell me, what kind of look does Dame Vaako have on her face?" She asked in an equally quiet voice.

"Oh she looks scandalized." Riddick told her and she gave a soft wicked chuckle only for him to hear.

"I'll explain everything once were off this fucking ship." She told him.

"Damn right you will." Riddick complained.

"Oh, poor baby. Are we having a hard time?" She teased him.

She let out a small squeak of surprise when Riddick lifted her in his arms as he stood her arms wrapping around his neck instinctively. Riddick laughed as she glared at him before giving him a wicked grin and lowering her mouth to his neck. He let out a small groan as she bit down hard enough to leave a mark but not bruise the skin. She continued feasting on his neck as he carried her out of the room and off the ship. She laughed out loud when he nearly dropped her to the ground smirking up at him and batting her lashes. "You're going to love it." She promised him in a wicked voice.

"Yes well you'd best get to that part as right now I'm having a hard time." He growled throwing her words right back at her.

"You remember that little spat with Dame Vaako? I mentioned that I knew she liked sex really rough, likes getting smacked around and shit like that?" She asked him and he nodded. "Well it's a scene from the movie I saw Chronicles of Riddick where she and Vaako are scheming to kill the Lord Marshal she pushes Vaako's buttons and get backhanded. Next thing you know there making out and she tells him she wants to go into the Throne room when no one is watching and get down on her knees before him." She explained to him.

For a long moment he just stared down at her with that unreadable face of his before he suddenly threw his head back and started roaring with laughter. She smiled hand covering her mouth as she started laughing Riddick reaching down to pull her up with that hand. He smirked down at her tilting her face up to give her a hungry kiss leaving her panting and very hot.

"You owe me for that." Riddick warned her in a low voice.

"Oh come on I didn't even get to see the look on her face!" She complained, pouting.

"You still owe me." Riddick told her with a smile.

He was wearing his usual black cargo pants and black tank top with a cape like the one he'd brought for her and a small pack. He began leading them away from the ship pulling some sandwiches kind of like eggs with cheese sausage and muffins. They were fair sized and she couldn't finish all of her smiling when Riddick finished it for her. They traveled for a while at a steady pace making tracks past the outskirts of the ruined city into the desert.

The landscape reminded her of the planet with the creatures coarse her company could have something to do with that to. They had been walking for about an hour when they got to the rock formation and she realized that Riddick was leading her somewhere specific. He lead her threw a path into the rock formation until it broke open to reveal a hidden oasis. It had a waterfall into a small lake with trees and green grass and privacy.

"Jesus fucking Christ. How long you known this was here?" She asked him getting an amused chuckle.

"I found it about a week after Kyra died. I've never found evidence anyone else knows it's here." He reassured her and she nodded.

"Perfect. You do know were still only going to talk, right?" She told him.

"No, were not. You owe me remember?" Riddick reminded her.

"Riddick." She warned.

"See that lake?" Riddick asked her pointing at the waterfall and small clear blue lake.

"Yeah, I'm not blind Riddick." She replied sarcastically.

"Were going swimming in it. It's a great way to cool off, you are hot right?" He asked her.

"Yeah, but I didn't exactly bring my swimsuit." She replied.

"Swimsuit? It's called skinny dipping." He told her and she sighed.

"How did I not see that coming?" She said chidingly more to herself.

"I don't know." Riddick replied teasingly laughing.

She watched blinking in surprise as he stripped quickly before her walking naked over to the lake and diving in. She sighed licking her lips as she bent to untie her shoes. It was a good thing she didn't bring Kali as she tended to freak if she saw Lex submerged in a body of water bigger then the tub. Riddick was treading water watching her every move and she quirked a brow at him smiling teasingly.

She inched her pants down before pulling her tank top up over her head licking her lips as she reached behind her unhooking her bra. She turned her back on him as she pulled it off hooking her thumbs on her panties and pulling them down. Leaving her cloths there in a pile she stood before turning and running to the water. She jumped in making a point to splash Riddick as she did so laughing as he returned the favor as she came up for air. They rough housed for a while in the water having a carefree moment before they had to talk.

Finally about an hour later they got out drying off with towels Riddick had packed. After dressing Riddick pulled out some food that they munched on hungrily for a quiet moment.

"How much do you know about the Vaako's scheming?" She asked Riddick.

"Enough to know that they want the throne and will do what they have to, to get it." Riddick told her.

"If your future plans for the Necro's gets out, it will be easy for them to move against you." She told him and he laughed.

"They couldn't kill me when the Last Lord Marshal told them to, why should I be worried?" Riddick asked her.

"Because they nearly did kill you. Or did you forget that little fact? No of coarse not, much as you'd like to. Because if they hadn't, she never would've died helping you would she? Well I can't let you ignore that fact Riddick because the only one left to martyr in her place this time is…me." She told him.

"That's not going to happen." Riddick told her.

"It just might, you can't be everywhere Riddick."

"So what are you suggesting?" Riddick asked her.

"I don't know Riddick." She told him with a sigh. "I just know I don't want to be enveloped in this shit when it hit's the fan."

"Not a bad strategy." Riddick told her. "What did you want to say about Aereon?" He asked her and she sighed.

"You know she is the Elemental that told the prophecy to the Lord Marshal about a Furyan man bringing about his end. She was the one who calculated that his actions following the prophecy would put events into place. She knew if she told him he would try and kill all male Furyans and in the end one of the survivors would likely destroy him." She explained to him.

"You're telling me she's the reason he destroyed Furya?" Riddick asked her.

"Yes. She's the reason you ended up in a trash bin with your umbilical cord wrapped around your neck." She told him.

"Why would she something like that?" Riddick asked her.

"Isn't it obvious? Balance." She told him spitting the word. "To Elementals it is everything…remember? They have thirty-six words for it. She calculated what that young soldiers future would become, and she calculated a way to rebalance the 'verse. What is the death of Furya and so many of it's people if in the end, the balance is restored?" She told him with a shrug.

"That windy bitch." Riddick said angrily.

"Now you understand why I don't trust her. We are just a means to an end for her, and if we have to die to restore balance she will gladly sacrifice us. I ain't no fucking martyr and I sure as fuck don't need to ask if you are." She told him heatedly.

"As you would say Lex, it would be a stupid question." Riddick told her and she nodded.

"So, we need to make plans." She stated and Riddick nodded.

"Vaako's will make there move eventually. I don't want it to happen on this planet." Riddick stated and she nodded agreeing wholeheartedly.

"Agreed, in fact I hate to say it but it may be best to relocate Ziza and Lajjun. When it all comes down they will be targets if they are left out in the open." She told him and he nodded.

"Agreed. We'll have to take care of it our self's, I have a ship to use." Riddick told her and she nodded.

"Alright, now I just have to explain it all to Lajjun." She replied with a sigh.

"Better you then me." Riddick explained and she chuckled.

"Yeah, I wasn't going to say anything." She teased. "Do you know some where they might be able to hide out safely for a while?" She asked him.

"Yeah, I know a few spots." Riddick replied.

"Not U.V. 6 right?" She asked him and he chuckled shaking his head. "Good."

"We should start heading back." Riddick told her and she nodded.

"Yeah, lots to do. Riddick, when we go. I can't leave Tess behind." She told him voice brooking no argument.

"Fine, we'll leave her with Ziza and Lajjun." Riddick told her and she nodded.

"That's fine she had no where else to go." She told him.

They started back making fairly good time washing up a bit before dinner Aereon not joining them again. Lex was beginning to wonder about that, what was up with the sudden disappearance. She and Riddick shared a glance and she knew he was wondering the same thing. Was Aereon trying to give the 'love birds' privacy or did she sense the growing hostility towards her between them? After eating Lex and Riddick went to there rooms showering and changing before Riddick joined her in her bed Lex sleeping in Riddick's arms.
