I can feel my body righting it's self. The bruises that should be apparant after being pummled continuosly for the last hour no where to be found. That last guy had been to drunk to stand let alone fight. This was to easy.

"Huh!" he scoffed as he raised his glass to his lips. Draining the sharp liquide and relishing the burn as it slid down his throat. He breathed deepily and lowered the glass ignoring the man trying to drum up another fight. His keen sences picked up a foriegn scent in the air.

Moving his neck from side to side letting the satisfying sound ease his tension. It was a sweet soft scent. Not of purfume. God knew the place was filled with women that doused themselves in it. Trying to hide the stink they had become.

No this was different. This was the smell of innocence. Of timidity. He could tell she was here mixing in the crowd, but that she was untouchable. Oblivious to all around her. She smelled of mint and cold and budding womanhood. The wanting was a surprise. His body reacting to nothing more than the scent of her skin.

Then the air changed and he knew that a new gladiator had stepped into the ring. He stood his ground not even flinching as the man neared him.

He excepted the blow. Drank it in as he had drunk the whiskey earlier. Pulled it into himself. Letting his loneliness and rage build. Build to a towering inferno before he struck out. It was over before he even began. Then he was back at the cage. Breathing deepily. Drinking her scent. Oddily it was calming.

There was a tugging in his chest. Different than when he healed himself. It was like a cord was being pulled. Drawing him to her. She was a witch. He decided.

He faught his reaction. The pull she excerted over him. He tried to sever the knot that held the cord but could not.

Her flesh would be pale and soft. Glowing like ivory in the firelight. She was young. He knew that much and she was tied to him as surely as if they had been bound by ropes. His soul cried deep within him. It knew her's. His soul gathered in his chest and screamed in longing for her's. Almost helplessly he turned his eyes impaling her immediatly. And their souls collided in the age old ritual of lost souls. Of mating spirits long seperated by death's darkness. Only to be thrust time and again into another time and place. To search from moment to moment for its completion. Its mate. His mate. He saw her with the eyes of a soul long thirsty for his sweet fountian. Eyes that could almost recall caressing her flesh. The forbidden fruit in the garden.

She is an angel amid the darkness that consumes me. I am nothing but a saturnine demon locked in my own ruin. A moth drawn to the flame and soon snuffed out by its glory.

As she stands and meets my feral gaze with honesty and a deep longing that I can see in her eyes, her soul's gate. I can almost see my hands on her small body. Caressing her small breasts with my lips and tongue. Her finger's in my hair. Pulling me to her as her soul pulls me to her now.

He nearly fell beneath the weight of thier soul's joining. Then it hit him. The loneliness. The reality. This was not some ethereal lover come back to him. It was a girl child and he was an animal. It seemed fate was a cruel and wicked thing. He could no more have this child than he could have his memories back. With the pain that crashed into him he flexed his muscles and howled at the raging crowd that came suddenly into sharp focus. Then he turned his back and his soul cried out in desolation. As he felt again the soul shattering collision of his soul with her's.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: I am taking liberties her because I am going to do a continuing series. Dealing with the past lives of our two hero's. I think the most romantic thing in the world is two people destined for each other through out time.
As angst producing as lover's held away from each other.
