Today’s the last day of the terrible trio history. I’ve had a look at the hits etc over the past couple of days/weeks and the most popular post appeared to be the smut one. >.> Totally writing smut tomorrow, y’all have been warned… maybe I’ll take a crack at 50-shades inspired smut 😉
And now I present to you my baby, one of my alter egos, the fierce and awesome rogue I sometimes wish I could be, Lia Moonflower. Also, fair warning, this is quite possibly going to be way more than one page. 😉
The first thing that Lia Moonflower remembers in her life is a blonde haired and green eyed woman singing to her softly. Unfortunately, that’s the only memory she has of the woman. Something deep inside tells her that it was her mother, as when she looks in a mirror she can see the same eyes staring back at her, but she’s never 100% sure. After all, a red-haired elf is incredibly uncommon… a sign that at some point in Lia’s lineage, a human ancestor lingers.
The next few things she remembers is her ‘playground’ – the capital city of Torunia, where she learned with her ‘schoolmates’ how to lie, cheat, beg and steal. Kind strangers often would help children who appeared dirty and abandoned, and the children had learned that in order to make it Torunia, they needed to band together. Lia sometimes fondly recollects those days, and wonders what happened to her ‘playmates’.
It wasn’t until Lia was beginning to develop into a young elfwoman that she began to notice that the women stopped being so kind to her on the streets. The men, however, were beginning to be overgenerous. A few even offered to take her home, but she politely refused.
To compliment the few scraps she was able to get through begging, she learned to steal. A small little dagger was often her friend as she cut a purse off this man or that woman. It was one such attempt that would change Lia’s life forever. She attempted to rob the Madam of the Thorny Rose, a well known brothel in the Lakefront district. The madam’s guards detained Lia, and she thought for sure she would end up in the dungeons. Rumours said that young women who ended up there often had to pay with their bodies for their freedom.
Lia quickly learned that she would still have to do the same – but instead of a dank and dark cell, she paid for her freedom by a richly appointed room at the Thorny Rose. Billed as an “Exotic blend of human and elf” men flocked to the Thorny Rose to pay for a few hours with Lia. And, despite the fact that at first Lia was scared, she soon learned to enjoy it. There was so much pleasure that could be had from these visits!
One night, one of her more wealthy patrons had fallen asleep after having spent some time with Lia, and Lia herself was restless. She paced the interior of her room and contemplated going to find some of the other girls, when she noticed that the nobleman had a pouch that was still heavy with coin… more coin than what he paid her and the brothel. And if he carried this much extra coin with him, who knew what was in his house?
It was a raid on the brothel that gave Lia the chance to escape. She had been with another client when the guards came tearing through the brothel, looking for prominent members of the community and the whores that they were paying for. Lia, falling back on her previous life, stole the heavy pouch of coins this patron had kept on him as well and melted into the shadows. When everything was calm, the only thing missing was a pouch of coins, and Lia herself.
Hiding in the back alleyways of Torunia, she began to reacquaint herself with the more shadowy life that she had left behind. Confident that the plan she had would work, she snuck back into the Lake district where many wealthy men lived in big houses with lots of riches. Targetting one, she would sneak into it while the owners were out and steal whatever she could comfortably carry. It was during one such event that she miscalculated and discovered that the man was home.
Using the rope that she scaled the houses with, she tied him up and gagged him. She quickly stole what she could and, feeling cheeky, she then made out with him a bit, leaving him bound, gagged, and quite aroused.
This soon became her MO. Sometimes, she would actually let the man of the house have his way with her before tying him and stealing. No man would admit what the devious young elf looked like to his friends and family if word got out, so she was playing it safe.
Unfortunately, there was only so much of this she could do before she had managed to steal her way through the majority of the wealthy citizens of Torunia, so she took her act on the road.
It was in another bigger city that she was staying in a rather opulent inn. She didn’t really want to pay for her own inn bill, and when a mysterious hooded woman arrived with a guard, Lia knew she had a mark. The guard was a fabled Blade Mistress, and they were EXPENSIVE.
In the middle of the night, Lia snuck into the woman’s room and began to steal what she could. She forgot something very important about Blade Mistresses however, and that was their legendary vigilance. Lia was soon caught by the amber eyed dark haired woman, who glared at her with undisguised violence.
It was the soft words of the hooded woman that saved Lia. And from that day, she became a part of the lives of Xyen and Calenia Meriane, eventually leading the three of them to Imhabia, and the lands of the Ronin where they would find life, love, cures for disease… and war.
