A Lesson in Submission
By: Erosa Knowles
Khayden, Master Lawke didn’t need anyone. He ruled his people with an iron fist. Standing over six feet, with wide shoulders, muscular chest, and long legs he feared no man. Every desire was filled. His people ran to do his bidding. Everything he wanted was within his grasp. Yet his people were dying. Filled with a silent rage, he cursed his destiny. He hated the fact his existence was the catalyst draining his people’s energy. After centuries of waiting, and fruitless searching he’d lost all hope. Just as he decides there is no Kee to unlock his powers and save his people, she walks down the cobblestoned streets of his domain.
The answer is clothed in human flesh. Something as alien to him as he is to her. The idea that his salvation and that of his people, is encased in someone who lacks the gelatal membrane beneath the skin, critical for the unlocking, slams him to the brink of madness. After railing against his fate, he comes to one undeniable conclusion.
Left without a choice, the Master must submit. It’s not easy, but it is necessary. For such a Alpha male the idea of submission initially leaves an acrid taste on his tongue.
He submits to the hand of his Kee, the only being alive who can handle his fire, his blue flame. By handling his flame she stokes his inner fire to a fevered pitch, he learns submission has its own rewards.
He submits to her mindset, especially when it becomes evident her strength complements his. Together they co-rule his people, making everyone stronger, better. With her standing next to him, he learns the true strength of submission; it takes a strong man to truly share his power.
He submits his heart to her as he realizes without her his life lacks focus and joy. He is humbled further when she gives him not only her heart but her very being. He learns the choice of submission offers the best of all worlds, two hearts beating as one. Not because they have to, but because they want to. No one can force a Kee into a Lawke.
