WEP - A New Genesis



RIBBONS & CANDLES

A New Genesis



Snow was falling at an angry rate, and Lilith was sure God was to blame. She expected her lover, Lucifer, the man deemed most evil by all of existence, to arrive at any moment.
Watching the dancing flakes from her secure but opulent prison, Lilith waited with zealous expectation, confident that Lucifer would defy both God and the tremendous odds against him to rescue her from exile.

Their union was forbidden, but Lilith couldn’t understand why. Bringing heaven and hell together could be the beginning of world peace. She was sure that together, their reign would benefit mankind. Her love was pure and honest, and she knew she could calm the rage that had grown in Lucifer over their years of separation, leading to an increase in war, disease, and chaos. She alone could help Lucifer see reason, but would he travel the distance? Would he fight the odds for their sacred love?

Ten thousand miles of nothing but fierce icy winds and torrential snow at temperatures that could freeze even the depths of hell. Could her love guide his path, or would the Ice Angels win the day?

She re-read the note he managed to smuggle to her.

Dearest Lilith, my Love:

The night will not defeat us. Our love will be consummated, and peace on earth will result. Prepare yourself, my love. I’ll arrive at the stroke of midnight, and at dawn, a new genesis begins.

Forever yours,

Lucifer

Lilith bathed in rose-scented water and dressed in a seductive, silky white gown. She tied the ribbon of the gown over her breasts and thought of the moment when Lucifer would pull tenderly at its silkiness, and the dress would fall away, revealing all that was his, and his alone. She longed to have him take her in his arms. As for the fires of hell, Lilith’s touch would neutralize the inferno, and together, their children would rule the world.

The clock sounded the first chime of the midnight hour, and the candles’ flames leapt and grew more substantial. Lilith ran to the window and peered out into the vastness, struggling to catch a glimpse of movement through the blanket of snow. A smile touched her lips. There, in the distance, was Lucifer’s chariot, glowing as brightly as the sun. As he drew ever closer, the thundering hooves of the hell beasts shook the ground, and the spears and arrows of the Ice Angels disintegrated on contact with his flame, leaving a black quagmire of death in his wake.

At the last stroke of midnight, Lucifer arrived, and Lilith threw open the door to receive her Prince. She ran into the night and stopped just inches away from him. Their eyes locked, and without speaking, he reached out and delicately untied the silky ribbon that was hiding her from him. The gown fell to her feet in ashes, and Lucifer embraced his Lilith within a maelstrom of blue flames.

The next morning the headlines read: TRUMP DEFEATS HILLARY

  7. 'Bringing heaven and hell together could be the beginning of world peace.' I loved that line, but when I read the curtain line, I was all agog. Rolling around the floor in hysterical laughter I had to wonder then, do we have Heavenly Hilary and Hellish Trump. Adorable! We need a good laugh to counteract some of that codswallop that passes for news that bombards us from all sides.

    Awesome entry for Ribbons and Candles! Would have been hellish if you'd missed it, but I see where your inspiration came from.

    Much love and thanks for everything! You know what I mean!

  12. Hahaha still laughing at that endline!! Poor Lilith...Absolutely loved this take on the prompt. Beyond brilliant!

  13. I have to admit I don't know what to say. The imagery is excellent and the ending plays with mind. The projection or injection of similarities to the U.S. election two years ago is powerful.

  17. Such an unexpected end. Who would expect that such an out of the world love story would have Hillary & Trump play a part in it.

  18. Aha, so that's what caused all this turmoil and dissension in the world. Lillith and Lucifer. Do you think a spell might change all that? Hope your Christmas is merry!

  19. I always wondered where Lucifer learnt that golf-swing - or didn't. What a twisted and clever tale.

  20. Lol; not sure which headline would have been the bigger disaster. Nicely done Yolanda. Lilith and Lucifer is a hell of a Romance :)
