He watched you from the shadow of a large oak. Large green eyes studying your every movement. He could never leave the forest that was his curse. No matter how much he wanted to take a few steps beyond to take hold of what he wanted he couldn't.
So for now he would wait for you.
"Mom, please let me go into the forest. I promise I'll be careful."
"No __________, it's far too dangerous," your mother fussed.
"I'm never allowed in the forest," you said, "at least tell me why."
Your mother stared at you with worried eyes. She had her reasons, but she would never tell you. If she told you, you might be tempted to go to the forest despite her warning. "Just don't go ____________. Please, it's not safe for you to go there. If anything happened to you I could never forgive myself."
All that seemed to go through one ear and out the other. Pouting you turned your eyesight to the line of trees just a half mile away.
Smirking to yourself you stole your way out of the house.
"It's beautiful," you marveled as you took your first step into the thick green foliage. Leaves, green as emeralds, brushed against your skin. "I don't know why mother says it's unsafe." You brushed your fingers against the bark of a great tree. "How can this place be so bad?"
"It's not bad my dear," came a voice from behind you.
Turning around quickly with a squeak you jumped. In front of you was the most beautiful and perfect man you had ever seen. Perfectly flawless skin. Green eyes like the leaves. Messy blonde hair. However he did have enormous eyebrows.
Another thing you noticed, his ears were pointed. He was a fairy.
"Who-who are you?" you were shaking slightly. Fairies had always been described to you as mischievous, troublesome, and sometimes downright evil.
"Oh, allow me to introduce myself, my name is Arthur."
You gave a shaky smile, "N-nice to meet you. My name is _-."
"____________, I know, love," he said taking a step closer to you.
"W-well it was nice to meet you, but I had better be getting back home now," you said and turned to walk away.
"No," he said grabbing your arm. "I don't think so."
You tried to wrench your arm away, but his grip was firm.
He smiled lovingly at you, "____________...____________ you're finally here. I'm never going to let you go."
Tears leaked into your eyes, "W-what?"
"That marking on your shoulder, your parents never told you what it meant, did they," he asked gently moving your sleeve down to reveal a lacy leaf like tattoo. "It means you're mine ____________." He leaned forward and kissed you.
It was rough, commanding, and possessive; not at all what you thought your first kiss would be like. You fought until almost all your energy was gone. When his lips left yours you had tears running down your cheeks.
"___________, what's wrong?"
You said nothing, just looked down so he couldn't see your eyes.
"__________, please talk to me," he grabbed both your arms and shook you.
"Please stop," you whispered weakly, "you're going to bruise me."
He let go almost instantly. You took this advantage and ran away.
"______________!" Arthur shouted, "No matter how long you run I will find you."
Just as you reached the line of trees you tripped. When you lifted yourself up you found Arthur there. Giving you a smile he picked you up and carried your bridal style back into the woods.
"W-what are you doing."
"We are going home __________," he smiled and kissed your nose. "You and me together…forever."
You resigned yourself to this fate, you were now eternally……his.
