[[The Beast in me]]
a short erotic interactive fantasy fiction
by pervventures(colour:orange)[//“Lith, are you there? I need your help with some...”//], a friendly rough-looking face with blond, shaggy hair peeks through one of the small windows of the witch’s clay hut.
His name is Foxe, a wood chopper and one of the Widecombe locals living close to Lith's forest. Scratching his head he calls for the witch again: (colour:orange)[//“Lith, hello-ho?”//]
[[Foxe-> Foxe]] is a truly rare man in the witch’s life, one of the few humans that can plainly see her hut in broad daylight, screaming //'Hello'// and entering it without being killed by poison, death through asphyxiation and lethal traps at the same time.Ever since Lith saved both Foxe’s children, he became a loyal friend to the witch. A couple of years ago a devastating blight was raging the land, infecting both his children and the wife. Only his two boys survived - something Lith is grappling with till this day - yet in the woodchopper's eyes she has become a magical being who he still is deeply thankful for.
Over the years their relationship got stronger - and Foxe more than just a friend: he eventually became her connection to the outside as the witch’s livelihood must be kept secret to most human mortals.
//“I’m here!”//, the witch calls up from the small storage room below. Enthusiastically Lith jumps out of the cavern, hugs the surprised and often gruffly Foxe to smack a kiss on his bearded face. //“Good to have you around, Foxe! I haven't seen you in a while ... //[[//is everything alright?”// -> Foxeproblem]](colour:orange)[//“Kinda. I have something that will definitely challenge you ... and might not be so easy to solve. ”//]
//“Oh do tell, I looooove challenges! What is it, Foxe?”//
(colour:orange)[//“You know, I have a friend I never really told you about. He is a bright young man I came to know by accident. For quite a while now, actually, though most likely we would hate one another under different circumstances.”//]
Lith gives him a puzzled look.
(colour:orange)[//“But we don’t, I enjoy his company, having him near me turned out to be my life insurance oftentimes.”//]
//“Wow, your [[friendship sounds special]] … why did you never tell me about him?”//
(colour:orange)[//“I feel bad keeping a secret from you, Lith. I did so for a reason you will see soon enough. Anyway, lately he is extremely depressed, rarely comes to visit - and I might have an idea what is causing it.
I think only a witch with your skills can help. Lith, will you see him?”//]Lith is intrigued. Without hesitation, she packs some ingredients and a bottle of water into her leather satchel. //“Alright, my friend, let’s go then!”//
The wood chopper is leading their way with huge steps forward through the forest into a part Lith barely knows. These grounds are darker, thick with old gnarled beech and oak trees, framed with heaps of leaves from past autumns that shroud the ground. It smells of moss, mushrooms and the rich dark earth of an ancient forest.
Foxe seems to become more nervous the closer they get to their destination.
Suddenly the couple comes to a halt, hesitating until they recognize it's a song they're hearing. Someone plays the lute accompanied by a soft song in an otherworldly voice. Something so sensitive and eerie, she nearly forgets how tense Foxe has been since they started to arrive in these parts.
[[The singer must be really close. ->otherworldly voice]](colour:orange)[//“We are here.”//], Foxe announces. (colour:orange)[//“Durandal, I’m back with miss Lith!”.//]
From behind a remarkably ancient maple tree peeks a young face with a shock of brown curly hair. Lith starts to surround the tree to get a better view on who the source of such a beautiful song is.
In shock, the young man gets up, rising to his full size, nearly crushing his lute when he staggers on his feet.
Suddenly, Lith has a full look on the young man’s body. Shocked by the beauty and strength [[he is emanating]], Lith openly stares at him with curiosity forgetting all her manners.
Foxe draws closer, apologizing: (colour:orange)[//“Maybe I should have told you who he is. But I couldn’t be sure you would help him otherwise.”//]
Much later this day, the witch is back in her hut. With her: Selena, her slender, red-haired friend.
(colour:white+red)[//“You’ll only know until you try, Lith.”//]
Selena mocks her in a challenging tone when she pushes a freshly-made steaming cup of tea in her direction. (colour:white+red)[//“Be a bit more open-minded about these things. Common, give it a try! It's the latest chic in Silver Burg. Especially as you pride yourself on being the herbalist wiz of us, you need to try this.”//]
Lith looks at her doubtfully, knowing the alchemist who created this tea. //“I'm really not”//, the young witch grumbles,//”I seem to have solved most of my problems without any potions, lately. Besides, nobody wants to see inverted colors after drinking that tea.// [[//"It’s disgusting!”// ->Itsdisgusting]]
Selena lifts her cup toasting to Lith, laughing like an old wood hag to drain it in one long gulp. Her pupils slowly narrow and she starts to smile. (colour:white+red)[//“Girl, you miss something here! And it’s not just the colors. This tea is amazing for your teeth and nails”.//]
Lith rolls her eyes. //What does Selena know of herbology …?!//
Ultimately, Lith can’t help but follow her friend drinking the obscure tea, too. In the course of the evening, both witches sit next to each other giggling while [[exchanging anecdotes]] about all their failed potions and spells.
How Selena lost her dress once in a portal accident when she arrived at a client's home. Or how Lith's skin was covered with warts looking like a toad when she mixed her first love potion to impress a boy in her class.It is already late when Selena prepares herself to go.
//“No portals today?”//, Lith wonders. (colour:white+red)[//“Yap, no portal magic tonight. I’ll have to go by broom this time. My source is drained and I missed out on getting a certain soul stone refilled. You don’t happen to have red powder to conjure the portal instead?”//]
Lith shakes her head. Selena shrugs. (colour:white+red)[//“Being reminded of who we are without magic is humbling from time to time.”//]
//“Like hell this is, witch, who hops her sexy ass on a broom to rise above// [[//mortal peasants and furry creatures of the forest."// ->mortal peasants and furry creatures of the forest]]
Lith’s eyes widen. //“Damnit! I completely forgot to ask for your advice in my latest case!”//
Selena lifts her left eyebrow, captivated. (colour:white+red)[//“What is it? Something about sexy peasants?”//]
//“No, the other thing. Okay, listen. I have a new assignment. And he is ... different. He sought my help, because he is missing something that young men his age should already have - which ... he hasn’t.”//
Selena pulls the broomstick from between her legs, leaning against the door.
(colour:white+red)[//“Don’t be so mysterious! Is it a mortgage?”//]
//“Haha. Nooo!// (link-reveal:"Listen:")[ //He is a [[centaur]], and he can’t grow horns.”//]
Selena looks at her friend, eyes wide.
(colour:white+red)[//“A what now?! How did you come to talk to a centaur? Um, aggressive, murderous horses that form packs to overrun villages, kidnap goats and eat women?”//]
Lith grumbles: //“Seriously, Sel? First of: It’s called 'herd' not 'pack'. And second...wow, I wouldn’t have thought that you believe these rumours. Who of us is narrow-minded? Do you even know any centaur?!”// (link-reveal:"Lith feels anger rising inside of her.")[
The young witch could see her friend was ashamed, blushing. Selena lifts her head, she looks directly at Lith, taking her by the shoulders. (colour:white+red)[//“Okay, what I said wasn’t quite fair. And no, I don’t know any centaurs personally. Why would I? They live so closed off, any contact with them has ceased for decades. Listen, Lith, I really fear for your well-being. I heard of witches and mortals being killed by centaurs. I don’t want you to be one of them. Do you even know how to cure that species?”//]
[[//"I have a vague idea."//->I have a vague idea]] //But I need your help. Will you support me? Please?”// Lith is full of doubt.
Selena takes her hands, kissing her fingers: (colour:white+red)[//“As dangerous as I feel this idea is - which of your ideas actually aren’t?! You are my friend and I will help you!”//]](link-reveal:"Tonight is the night")[. After extensive preparations and research on Lith's side it is time to meet with the centaur, again.
In the middle of a group of birch trees stands an altar-like rock with three candles burning atop, surrounded by a pentagram drawn with salt into the forest soil. The pagan symbol is surrounded by even more candles.
In its midst next to the altar stands the centaur Durandal. An athletic, tall horseman with dark brown fur and light skin. For a creature that is rumored to be aggressive and ruthless, the young horseman is visibly nervous, treading anxiously with his hooves as if it's him who will be the (link-reveal:"sacrificial lamb of an ancient ritual")[. No wonder: he will be in the hand of witches. There is a reason the two species haven't had any contact for such a long time.
Right in front of him stands Lith in a witch circle - a concentrically arranged group of fly agarics that her coven interprets as a good sign.
She wears a long dress that is closely wrapped around her body, a thick white candle in her right hand and shortened fir twigs in her left.
[[Dark and sincere she looks at the centaur.]]]]Selena sits a bit further away from the ritual place as Lith needed some private time with Durandal, eyeing the two of them in a melange of tension and excitement.
//“Sit with me. Please.”// Lith walks close to the nervous centaur. She stretches out her hand to gently guide him to the floor, placing candle and twigs next to her. Durandal looks extremely uncomfortable but obeys.
//“What is your wish, Durandal?”//, Lith asks.
(colour:grey)[//“What will you do with me?”//] Durandal concernedly inquires while getting to his knees. He still doesn't trust the witch, although his human friend introduced her. Lith observes his face: even insecure as he is, he radiates strength and intensity. [[He just doesn’t know it yet.]]
Durandal looks to the floor, avoiding eye contact with Lith, getting slightly angry. (colour:grey)[//“I just want to have horns like the other centaurs have. I hate being different. Nobody will ever want me like that. Nobody takes me seriously. They only make fun of ...”//]Lith ignites the candle with a flip of her fingers to burn the fir twigs. A thick aroma of resin pours over them, white smoke (link-reveal:"bemusing their senses.")[
//“Try to relax and breathe. I’m here for you. Have no doubt.”// Lith slowly sucks in air, lifting his head with her right hand to meet his eyes. With both her hands she is wandering over his muscular body, savoring his sight: A centaur, the extraordinary composition of fused incompleteness. A young blooded human body atop of a dark-furred muscular creature. The sensitive singer merged with the frightful beast.
There is a saying about centaurs: When you (link-reveal:"lure the part of the beast, it will take over. The human has no saying anymore.")[
The witch feels strongly attracted to Durandal - he just doesn’t know it yet.
//“I will give you [[the power you]] seek”//, Lith whispers.
(colour:grey)[//“What do you want me to do?”//]]]//“Undress me!”//, commands Lith, getting slowly up from her seat to meet his size.
(colour:grey)[//“What ... I ...”//] //You are the enemy//, the witch thought. She doesn't care - she wants him.
Lith encourages Durandal by laying his hands to her hips.
She becomes slightly severe. Durandal obeys, moving his strong, shaking hands over her body.
The moment he meets the witch’s breasts Lith can feel the desire rising in the young centaur. He opens her corsage, shyly looking into her face while he gets faster(link-reveal:", pulling out the strings")[.
With a quick push he opens the black corsage, drops it onto the ground to leave her dress draped loosely over her body.
Both their hearts beat. This is the first time Lith is so close to a centaur, if anything being [[undressed by one]].
Durandal continues to unlace her black robe, impatiently waiting to see her skin by pushing the black fabric aside, revealing her breasts.
Full of desire, he encloses both of them keenly with his hands, feeling their weight and softness.] //“With this ritual I will lend you the power to grow what you desire.”//
She turns to the side of the rock to grab a candle. //“Take this, Durandal, and prove to me that you are worth your new power."//
Durandal hesitatingly seizes the candle. (colour:grey)[//“What ...?”//]
[[She wants to be fucked from behind. ->fuckbehind]]
[[She wahts to be fucked on her back. ->ontherock]]Lith takes his hand, guiding him down to her vulva.
(link-reveal:"//\"Rub me//")[ //- slowly..."//
(link-reveal:"//\"Make me wet!\"//")[ The centaur draws closer to her. Much closer, pressing her against the rock, holding her back gently with his right hand, while exploring her wet crotch.
(link-reveal:"//\"Kiss my tits!\"//")[ She holds her right breast up, enclosing her hardened nipple for him to lick it.
He complies eagerly, the tall creature completely supports her fragile body with one hand in her neck. Greedily he sucks one of her nipples while stroking the other one.
Lith feels his desire becoming more forceful.
[[Does he know his power, already? -> fuckbehind2]]]]]Lith takes his hand, guiding him down to her vulva.
(link-reveal:"//\“Rub me//")[ //- slowly..."//
(link-reveal:"//\“Make me wet!\”//")[ The centaur draws closer to her. Much closer, pressing her against the rock, holding her back gently, while exploring her wet crotch.
(link-reveal:"//\“Kiss it!\”//")[ She holds her right breast up, enclosing her hardened nipple for him to lick it. He complies eagerly, the tall creature completely supports her fragile body with one hand in her neck. Greedily he sucks one of her teats while stroking the other one.
Lith feels how his desire is getting more forceful.
[[Does he know his power, already? ->ontherock2]]]]]Lith turns around, propping her arms on the rock, showing him her gorgeous bottom.
//“I want you to fuck me with this.”// She points at the candle.
He doesn’t question her this time. Fully aroused by this view on Lith, Durandal grabs her butt cheeks with firm hands. Drawing her legs apart while stroking her vulva tightly with his thumbs. Lith moans. The mere thought of him fucking her gives her goosebumps. (link-reveal:"She lifts her ass higher.")[
Durandal licks the candle to make it wet, bringing it near her vulva. With two fingers she spreads her labia apart. Lith starts to breath heavily.
//“Do it”//, she begs.
The next moment, she feels a delicate pain. Durandal is thrusting the candle inside of her, slowly, pleasurable while he massages her bottom. The centaur gets fully incited by his control over the witch's body.
Working her, until [[she breaks down with lust]]. Moaning deeply.]
The witch breathes heavily, holding her hand out to Durandal to give her the candle. In an unexpected motion she throws the candle to the floor. Lith whispers inaudible spells to ignite it. Quickly the candle burns in a dazzling green light to unnaturally collapse into itself. The next moment the pentagram drawn on the ground is lit.
Lith, still on the rock, falls on her back. Time for Selena to draw closer.
//“Now is your turn, centaur. I want to feel your full strength, so you can fuse your human form with the rest of your body.”//
(link-reveal:"Durandal looks at her fearful.")[ (colour:grey)[//"I don't want to hurt you ..."//]
//"We have to melt your two forms, otherwise you will never grow horns."//
The centaur looks at her, seemingly torn between his old and his possible new life. Increasingly willing to submit to the beast.
Lith exhales in exertion for the things to come. Delicate sweat moistens her body.
//“This candle and pentagram may prepare me //[[for your true power ->truepower]]//.”//]Lith reclines on the rock, using her arms to uphold herself, slowly propping her feet on the rock.
//“I want you to fuck me with this.”// She points at the candle.
He doesn’t question her this time. Fully aroused by this view on Lith, Durandal grabs her thighs with firm hands, wandering over her belly down her crotch. While he strokes her vulva tightly with his thumbs he slowly draws her legs apart. She moans. The mere thought of him fucking her gives her goosebumps. She spreads her legs wider, (link-reveal:"impatiently to receive.")[
Durandal licks the candle to make it wet, bringing it near her labia. With two fingers she spreads them apart. Lith starts to breath heavily.
//“Do it”//, she begs, throwing her head into her neck.
The next moment, she feels a delicate pain. Durandal is thrusting the candle inside, slowly, pleasurable. The centaur gets fully incited by his control over the witch's body.
Working her, until [[she breaks down with lust]]. Moaning deeply.]Changed in his demeanor, Durandal is eyeing the willful witch, his large cock rising visibly. Lith reads his look: this one is going to fuck her hard, implacable, filling her completely. The danger of the beast in Durandal makes her even hornier. She sprawls with lust in front of him, lifting her arms over her head to (link-reveal:"find hold on the rock")[.
(colour:white+red)[//“You will not kill her, I prepared a spell.”//] Selena looks at him as if she read his mind. The red-haired witch positions herself behind Lith, drawing large fiery signs in the air, while holding one arm over Lith’s upper body.
The centaur approaches, trembling with desire he moves his forehoofs over the rock close to Lith's head, placing his enormous phallus on her lap. Mad with lust for the centaur's dick, she doesn’t even care if Selena’s magic is working.
[[She licks his dick. ->dicklick]]
[[She lets him fuck her. ->dickfuck]]]She gets back up to sit on her knees, the whipped up centaur enthroning over her; his large black cock directly in front of Lith’s face. Selena, though still fearing the centaur's awakened self-esteem, gets provoked by the look of her agitated friend, eager to touch the young witch's tense moist body.
While Lith leans forward to stroke the centaur’s cock with firm hands, Selena gets rid of her robe, pressing her bare breast against Lith’s back, skin on skin, feeling the young witch’s muscles working to grab the enormous phallus. The centaur neighs in a deep growl when looking at them, his cock gets harder, [[pressing against Lith’s face ->dicklick2]].Determined, Lith spreads her legs, raising one of them up to the centaur’s body. The whipped up creature is enthroning over both witches; his large black cock pressing against Lith’s belly.
Selena, though still fearing the centaurs awakened self-esteem, fully understands what her friend is appealed by. She drops her robe, revealing her naked body to the centaur to assist her friend.
Selena grasps the enormous phallus, streaking it lustfully with both firm hands while watching Lith leaning up against the centaur’s body, every muscle seemingly tense to embrace his stout dick.
The centaur neighs in a deep growl looking at them, his cock getting harder. [[Selena guiding him to Lith’s crotch. ->dickfuck2]]She sticks her wet tongue out, stretching it greedily to fathom the pulsing phallus, licking it eagerly. Selena embraces her from behind, pressing Lith’s breasts with one hand, pressing her aureoles to harden her nipples while wandering down Lith’s belly with the other hand to find her wet sex. In a delirium of lust the three of them are worshipping each other’s bodies.
Durandal trembles, treading in frenzy dangerously close to the two witches. But Lith doesn’t care. Like in trance she sucks his dick, pressing her mouth around, licking him in fervor more rapidly. She feels like the embodiment of lust, pleasuring the centaur when Selena is starting to finger her. [[Lith feels like losing her mind ->dicklick3]].The centaur groans intensely.
Lith knows it is time to let go of his dick. She leans back on the rock, implying Durandal to cum on her body. //”Let me bathe in your power.”//
Immediately, he let go of himself, bursting on the witch’s breasts. The creamy fluid runs down the jaded witch’s neck, breasts, belly and crotch.
Selena can’t help but massage Lith’s wet body with both hands until the two of them [[kiss longingly]].Both enjoy themselves so much, nearly leaving Durandal out of focus.
Overpowered the centaur is about to collapse onto the witches when Selena’s magic starts to burn aggressively in the air between them.
Without hesitation the red-haired witch draws one large quick green sign into the void. The centaur safely encapsulated to float gradually to the floor.
Calmly lying there he snuffels quietly. The beast turns back into the soft innocent singer, dreaming of his supposedly new life. All the fear of the wild beast taking over was ill-founded. [[What were they thinking? ->nextday]]At once, the centaur finds her wet vagina, thrusting forcefully into Lith. For a short moment, the witch feels like screaming in pain until her perception transitions into lust.
The centaur fills her, prodding hard so her back gets pressed against the rock. Lith wheezes for every hump against her pelvis. Selena lies next to her, watching Lith closely, savoring the look of her while touching herself.
The three of them are in a delirium of lust, worshipping each other’s bodies.
Durandal trembles, treading in frenzy dangerously close to the two witches.
But Lith doesn’t care. Like in trance she rhythmically moves her body, feeling a flurry rising inside of her the more rapidly the centaur is pushing her in fervor.
She feels like the embodiment of lust when Selena starts to move her other hand onto Lith's body, caressing her breasts, pressing her aureola to harden her nipple. [[Lith feels like losing her mind. ->dickfuck3]]The centaur groans intensely.
Lith knows it is time to let go of his dick. She hoists herself higher on the rock, trying to free herself from his grip. She meets his eyes again, implying Durandal to cum on her body. //”Let me bathe in your power.”//
Immediately, the centaur let go of himself, bursting on the witch’s breasts. The creamy fluid runs down the jaded witch’s neck, breasts, belly and crotch. Selena can’t help but massage Lith’s wet body with both hands until the two of them [[kiss longingly]]. The two witches relax on the rock. Lith looks at her friend, exhausted but happy her ritual worked.
//“I bet this changed your mind about centaurs, didn’t it, Sel?”// Lith looks at her friend grinning.
(colour:white+red)[//“This was dangerous and you know it! He only was under your control, because you conjured the pentagram. What if he would have kicked you with his hooves or anything…?”//]
//“You still only see the beast in him. I tell you a secret, that you didn’t see with all your caution: all the effects, the pentagram, the fir, the candle ... were only show.”//
(colour:white+red)[//“What do you mean...show?”//]
//“Like you once told me: [[There was no real ritual -> outro]]. And the enlightening of the pentagram didn’t conjure anything. Durandal wasn’t tamed with it. It just glowed to make it look more impressive.”// Lith shrugs.
Selena’s mouth opened and closed without a word. (colour:white+red)[//“But ... you cured him? I mean, he visibly started growing horns this morning …”//]//“Of course they did. In the end, shame on my skills - the ritual was no true magic. It was actually like most of my love potions: The act of creating them with a lover is raising their confidence. They get the self esteem they were lacking, feeling beautiful, strong and attractive, accepting who they are in the end. Something they already had in them - only they didn’t know it yet.”//
Lith chuckles. //“This is the true magical power of love and desire.”//
(colour:white+red)[//“Remind me to not buy any more potions from you.”//], Selena says, playing huffy.
//“Ahhhh, common, Sel!”//, Lith nudges her friend, laughing. //“Look at this: Durandal gave me an amulet when he went off this morning. He says, we can visit him sometimes. The two of us.”//
Selena raises her left eyebrow.
//"Will you come with me to see the centaurs, Sel? I think it's time to make some contact with them again.”// Lith looks at her friend expectantly.
(colour:white+red)[//“I guess I have to. There might be more centaurs collapsing over your fake magic. Who else will look after you?"//]
To be continued...
