I'm going to have to sit down for a minute to catch my breath. Great fantastic chapter. On top of that she has him. She bloody has him but he doesn't know it yet. May actually need to lie down......
Finally! Finally I get to indulge my darker side with some more Karlington. Mmf. You never fail to displease HisPet. Any interaction between those two is always just so delicious and I'm surprised my heart didn't break free from my chest whilst I was reading. And another five pages? Oh, thank you, thank you. I didn't think it was going to be five pages again. Now I just have to go back to playing the waiting game (no matter how bad I am at it) and just keep hoping that he'll get his hands on her again, a little more permanently next time too? Hehe ;) I know I'm not the only one who'd like to see those circumstances reinforced. But no matter what comes next I can't wait for it.
WOW!!! I must say this chapter had me on the edge. I love the wonderful tension between Arlington and Kara! I think those two need eachother secretly but they dont know it completly yet. All I know is I would love to read more about Arlington's softer side. Maybe have Kara do some more digging into him to break him down and get what she wants and in the mean time find herself falling in love with this troubled man. Cannot wait to read more!! This story is my absolute fav!!
ALL I CAN SAY IS MORE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh h!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wut? Are you serious? You decided to stop it right there?! OH MY GOD! After I read that, I literally threw my iPad on the couch and rose just to scream and pace. Wut? You're killing me! This is amazing! No matter how fast you write it, it won't be fast enough!
The tension between them, and Kara actually started laughing while they were dancing. And Arlington basically "gave up" his life, by the taking the bullets for Kara. Arrrrggghh. Please, please, more.... Need it...want it...
More twists and turns than Hampton Court maze.
Why do I get the feeling that the power dynamic has shifted big time in her favour and it is going to be a lovey dovey ending between them both.
Thanks HP for a great read.
Gosh, Hispet, you are such a brilliant writer!!
How do you come up with these ideas, twists and turns?
It's like watching a movie thriller. My heart was pounding at every turn.
Again with this chapter, you have drawn me back in to the point that I will be thinking about Kara and Arlington every day until the next chapter is submitted. I cannot say enough good things about your writing. The storyline is amazing, the characters are so interesting, and I love wondering what will happen next! Although I'm just sure Kara and Arlington will end up together (which is the way in should be, IMHO) I love that it isn't that simple and you keep us guessing, which keeps us interested... very, very interested! You have the best story, and I thank you SO much for sharing it with us!
Five pages and the lit gods was kind enough not to make us wait 7 days for this posting like they with other stories. Thank you lit gods! Agree with Masterfuji ... I think the power dynamis has shifted big time in Kara's favor. She is putting all of the puzzle "what make Arlington ticks?" together. The sad picture, his desperate need to re-capture her so that he can control her and be the master of his surroundings once again. Love the dancing and Arlington's willingness to take a bullet for her. Am I right into reading that Arlington is viewing Kara as a worthy adversary? She caused him tons of grief and yet I think he relishes the challenge. It is like waving a red flag in front of a bull's face. Bring on round two!
I love the way that you always keep us at the edge of our seats! I trully do hope that Kara and Arlington eventually end up together because honestly it seems like they need each other more than they're willing to let on. Even though Kara is currently having a "thing" with Ben, he isn't the one she constantly finds herself thinking of. Overall I just want Kara to find happiness and be able to have the life that she wants with someone she loves. It would be such a disappointment to end up finding out that she goes back to being Arlington's slave/pet once more because she really does deserve a good life and he needs to realize that Kara isn't just some pet he could order around. I am so intrigued by the way the game has changed since it's definitely about time Kara got the upper hand in this personal war she has with Arlington. I want for him to finally reveal this other side of himself more often now that the story is progressing. I hope that you find a way to tie everything together and make it work because I absolutely love this story! Please write as soon as you can...we will all be waiting :)
Would he, literally? I think so! Hmmmmm such UST throughout the chapter, fantastic! Bruised and battered Kara will be devastated if these "negotiations" are nothing but a cover. She is showing such wonderful fortitude and bravery, it's a rare treat for a heroine. I love the shift in dynamics between them, oooooh Arlington at Kara's mercy now that scene would be hot, also between Querren and Azalia. Wonderful narrative throughout the chapter, plenty of twists and turns, 5 pages of heaven.
The entire chapter kept me on the edge of my seat! The dance was masterfully choreographed and extremely well written. I
Haven't been this excited about a new chapter since Game of Thrones ASOIAF book five!!
Please do continue writing and as always I'll wait with bated breath for the next chapter. :)
I think this may have been my favourite chapter so far. There was a great balance of power. I didn't see Arlington as weak, but I see him softening, and I think you did an amazing job with that. Kara is becoming quite the force to be reckoned with, but not unrealistically so. Fantastic chapter, I can't wait to see what happens next!!
It’s such a relief to have them back together for this much-anticipated reunion! “This changes nothing,” my ass! Okay, let’s just address the gigantor elephant in the room. Arlington and Kara have a chemistry that is palpable and goes leaps and bounds out of the atmosphere compared to the connection Ben and Kara have. I like Ben. He’s a real nice guy. However, he and Kara do not have the connection that Arlington (David!) and Kara have. I have been reticent to share my Ben versus Arlington opinion in previous comments, but this chapter has solidified my stance, and I’m ready to fly my out and proud Team Arlington freak flag. I have preferred him from the get go but have kept my thoughts to myself, mainly because I respect whatever direction you take us in. Now, I say fuck it. I love Arlington! He is so deliciously and delightfully wicked, yet he is so multifaceted, and I cannot WAIT to see what future revelations into his past and present you give us.
Furthermore, Arlington seriously has a hard-on for his pet and not just because he wants to prove his control over her. Dude actually likes her, respects her, and it's obvious he'd die for her. He didn't hesitant one iota to protect her, with his own body. Hello tasty revelations! And that final bombshell she drops on him about her helping Isleydor’s soldiers during the war was just as juicy as his discovering her dirty little secret dream recording. Once again, she shocks him with her secrets. Their reunion discussion about that recording cannot come soon enough.
There is so much going on in the greater war and strategies, so many side characters and subplots, and I want to know everything. Even with Five pages of awesome, it was still not enough. Christ on a bike, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this chapter! Color me gleeful and bouncing around clapping and squeeing like a maniac! Great job, HisPet! I am eagerly anticipating the next chapter.
Ah, it was well worth the wait! I was hooked, one of my favorite chapters so far! You can finally start to see the dynamics between Arlington and Cara changing. Cannot wait for the next chapter!
I bet he's one of the soldiers she saved - that's why he asked for the exact words, because they had stuck to his mind.
Lovely twists and turns. I didn't like waiting however you really made it worth it. Like it or not Arlington has had to see Kara differently ... perhaps respect and some admiration. Seeing her strong again and admitting he missed the fire he had taken from her.
Kara is amazing and I enjoy, how you have created her character. Her commitment to her beliefs, strength and determination is so easy to adore her for.
with this chapter and Arlington! I cant wait for the next chapter and the softer side of David. Hmm just thinking about him is arousing. Great job Hispet.
Just having them in the same space is hot in itself but I can't wait till they get together again. These two are a world class pairing. Better then Scarlett and Rhett or Christian and Anna. Good job Hispet. I will continue to stalk you as long as you're willing to write.
Simply amazing. I definitely missed those two together. I will be stalking your page daily until the next chapter!:).
HisPet - I love your writing. And I can't tell you how happy I was to see this chapter. But please keep Kara and Ben together. Non-con or not, I want the good guy to win.
I love the way this is going, please dont stop.
I was so happy to finally read this chapter! I love the relationship between Kara and Arlington and hope to see more of it in the next chapters! Keep up the awesome work!
You completely throw me off guard with the brilliance and wonderful continuation of this marvelous story. I am physically and emotionally unable to calm the flurry of butterflies in my stomach. My mind is just scrambling.
You are amazing.
All I did was read the title and I am soooo excited!!!! Can't wait to read the chapter now!
God, so much hotness... The dance, the tension in the air (HOT!), him swirling her around, making her 'fly', her laughter, the words in her ear (HOT!), his 'interrogation' (HOT!), insistence for them to talk (HOT!), him saving her, her wanting to stop the bleeding, his general aura the whole way through (HOT!).. so much packed into this chapter, it's all just too good, loved all of it. And the mystery of her words towards the end, 'integrity before happiness', or perhaps the fact that she worked on Isleydor's soldiers, can't wait to read the chapter again to enjoy it in more detail. And can't wait to read more!!!
God, the way you write him, he's just HOTNESS personified. :)
(yes, so everything was HOT, it seems, so once i'm over that, i'll try to make some sense LOL :)
They're back together again> This is getting good.
How the heck will I survive until your next submission? Your story is incredible! The characters you created are so complex. I love that just when I think I know where you're headed with this story, you pull a rabbit out of your creative hat and BLOW ME AWAY! Thank you.
You just keep getting better and better. The deep emotional insight into these two wonderfully complex characters is amazing. So much to love about this chapter, but the final scene with each of them trying to protect or help the other in a reflexive state is a true turning point for both of them. Like Lisa above, I've been a silent Team Arlington cheerleader from the sidelines, but I'm cheering loud and clear now. Can't wait to see where you take us all next with your wonderful story. Congrats on knocking it out of the park.
This...This was delicious! Thank you for such an amazing chapter I was cracking up, my heart was racing. Great job! The fact that she's perverted and he's perverted is proof they belong together. She has a soft vulnerable side, he has a soft vulnerable side that needs to be revealed, but it's there, so they're meant to be together. Thank you Hispet21 for such a delicious chapter, I'm still licking my lips from all it's awesomeness. Keep up the great work.
FANTASTICLY BRILLIANTLY WONDERFLY AWESOME. Got chills the first time she called him David. Great job illustrating the kaleidoscope of emotions on both sides.
I can't say this enough, you are such a talented and creative writer. Not only have created an entire world of politics and culture and protocol, you express it so thoroughly I can truly believe this place exists. I can see it and hear it and feel it.
Thank you thank you for bringing arlington and Kara back to each other! The tension in the air when they were dancing was just amazing. With every chapter, my team ben vs team arlington gets switched up from time to time. This chapter was definitely a team Arlington chapter! Did Arlington just instinctively dodged bullets for Kara (he probably didnt even realize that he was wearing a vest and just wanted to protect Kara) Holy smokes. So we have two men who are willing to walk through fire for Kara, which makes for some interesting conflicts. Love that arlington sees Kara as a challenge now, that he had "fun" (as much fun as a man like arlington can have) dancing and him even liking it when she laughed. Arilyn is such a touchy subject for arlington that I wouldnt mind having some arlington chapters just to see how she changed arlington so drastically. What exactly happened to make him turn so cruel and bitter? And why was arlington so shaken up that kara saved some isleydor soldiers. Kara's age vs arlington's age doesnt seem to make it plausible that she saved him as a soldier since he's about 10 years older than her and rose to power by the time she was still a teenager? Was her mentor someone that he knew from his past and whom hurted him? ;) You give us some answers but then we're left with more speculations and questions always...hahaha.
And it looks like there may be more Greenwood as well (which im happy for). However, poor man. He cant even get peace for a few days it seems. :p
You're such a tease hispet since everytime arlington is about to say something snarky or profound, he gets interrupted..So we're left wondering what he was about to say.darnit...haha. It sounds like it might be a while before you can get another chapter out, but good luck on your exams dear.
Ps: I recommend "Escape from Paradise" by Gwendolyn Field for those looking for dark nonconsent until hispet releases another chapter.
I really didn't see myself ever jumping to Team Arlington, but this chapter made it happen.
You're such a brilliant writer, I squealed a little when I saw this chapter had posted!
And, I'm thinking Kara's prison medic mentor has something to do with Arlington's apprentice? I can't imagine any other connection hitting him so hard
I can't wait til the next chapter! I guess I just have to reread it all again...;)
Lord Arlington! That man makes me melt! When Kara addressed him by his first name I got such a thrill. :) I can't wait for his and Kara's next throw-down!
Just pure wow...what an amazing chapter. Of course I'm anxiously awaiting tge next chapter but you leave us with such juicy nuggets for speculation. I love the Arlington character you have created but somehow I still don't think he and Kara will end up together...he's responsible for destroying her beloved Calihistra and has a price on her Uncle's head. I think we will ultimately see Arlington give up control via self sacrifice. I can just see him using Kara's own words "integrity before happiness" as he chooses an honorable path. Such quotes that can really come back strong. .."the. Bad guys always get what they deserve." I'm envisioning Humphrey Bogart to Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca "we'll always have Paris." Anyway, sorry for all the supposition. I LOVE your story and LOVE filling my head with what ifs while awaiting your next amazing chapter!
Mother of incredible stories!!! As I started reading I was silently praying for Kara to not bow down to Arlington in this chapter. Well played! Dang!! Awesome job!! Now on to things....who wouldn't recognize a 7 foot fem assassin? Seriously neither Karrington, nor Alyssa, nor Querren recognizes her?? I get that she's not a regular military person but she's got a thing for Querren so he's got to know who she is, right? I need him to figure out that she's still spying. Love love love the interaction between Arlington and Kara this chapter. Abso-freaking-lutely awesome!!
Another great chapter !. Loved it and looking forward for #25
- whiskers on kittens.. Arlington bringing up Kara’s words about her cat in her dream, which was hot as hell, but also in a roundabout way (sort of) acknowledging the fact that she is a wild thing, and clearly can’t be locked inside and dressed up in pretty clothes.
- Kara’s general feistiness, ballsiness, wit and piss-taking levity, like the brilliant condescending line about his torture fetish and the ladies liking him, or the one about medication. All so well-written. Go Kara!
- Arlington realising that he had missed the defiance in Kara during her last days in his care, and admitting that it would be difficult to strike the balance between submission and fiery resistance, and acknowledging that he CRAVED the latter..
- Alyssa’s involuntary nose crunch when she hears the words ‘Arlington’ and ‘dancing’ combined. Priceless! Oh, and ‘tall, dark and asshole’, and the way she ripped the piss out of Arlington’s cool assassin pal. Love her. She can stay. :)
- Arlington “asking” Kara to dance. “I’d rather not.” “Yes, but I would.” God, someone get me a fan. Speaking of hotness, the way he felt like fucking her is SOO hot, just going at it, pinned against a wall, with much more urgency and anger than he’s showed before.. mm, yes, please. Oh, and his thoughts of her and the tape, imagining her moans etc.. speechless.
- “Murder is an erotic dance..” “you’re such a lovely dancer..” Kara & Arlington’s entire interaction in this chapter is one long, tension-filled, shifting erotic dance.. both surprising the other, wanting to out-smart and crack the surface of the other, while wanting to impress the other, and show what they’re made of, wanting to attract and give the other pause, and delve into the mind of the other.. with the constant shifting and changing balance of power and who has the upper hand.. just brilliant.
- The actual dance and him being so damn cool and good and good-humoured and sarcastic and naughty and hot, and how he’d missed her pouting, and Kara challenging him to make her fly, the ‘up we go..’ and ‘around the world..’ which was just too sweet and cute, and her laughter of course, which he probably heard for the first time.. loved all of it. Oh and the way he stopped her from leaving the dance floor, damn.
- The walk through the protesters, Arlington mentioning being hated no matter what you do, showing bitterness at not being viewed accurately in the eyes of the people, so might as well become what they say you are. Or there being no good and evil, just perceptions of good and evil, which are often distorted and probably manipulated for political ends.. and Kara getting a taste of being viewed as a hated figure, and for a moment it is as though the two of them are on the same side of the fence, and she gets a glimpse into his life/ psyche.. lovely stuff..
- Arlington being irritated (and worried) when Kara insists on pushing through the window to get away from him, when he just wanted to talk (mostly, at least, it seemed :) Can't wait for him to actually get her to stay still long enough to have this talk!
- Kara pissing Arlington off so much by mentioning Arilyn, that he doesn’t give a shit about trying to control and hide his anger anymore, but calls her a cunt and promises punishment (doesn’t he always.. promises, promises LOL). She’s cracking away at the façade nicely.
- Kara rising like a ballsy little blood-spattered phoenix from her fear and terror to deliver her most observant, cutting, penetrating lines yet, truly showing her strength, spirit and intelligence, countering all his responses, whilst the honesty of the admissions she drops in lends her words so much more power, as it shows she’s not only striking out in anger and revenge, just to make impact.. control vs. intimidation, brilliant! and the way Arlington perceives it all, the way you phrase it about her eyes and spirit is just stunning..
- Arlington realising that he needs a change of strategy, that the good ol’ ‘evil bastard’ act just won’t cut it anymore.. can’t wait for his next ‘more involved’ methods.. (wink wink). Bring it on..
- Kara having treated Isleydor’s soldiers, ‘integrity before happiness’ etc., I love what you’re doing here (if you’re doing what I think you’re doing), just perhaps referring to something someone clever might or might not have touched on a few chapters ago… could it be that both Kara and someone else way back when have lived by the same moral code.. second chance up for grabs and all that.. it seems to be a beautiful thing you’re weaving, can’t wait to find out more... (although I really hope you’ll let him live! so he won’t have to sacrifice himself trying to adhere to the ladies’ moral code or some such.. he's already starting to redeem himself nicely, with saving her life etc.)
- The frozen moment of Kara, dripping blood, straddling Arlington, staring into his eyes.. the moment of realisation and the resulting conversation, in which she’s casually sitting on top of him, recounting a tale from her past.. (forgetting the content of the tale for a moment), suddenly almost cozy while straddling him, not scared anymore… (and the way it all must have looked to Alyssa, haha)..
- “Especially not Karrington”.. ouch. just their little secret then.. (who can blame her..)
- “This changes nothing”.. mm-hmm, keep saying it - David.
- Lisaisalefty’s comment, which was pure yumminess to read.. mmmm, agreed, more K & A this way, please.. Team Arlington!
So it seems I’ve just recounted the entire chapter, but there you go, I blame you. :)
I second the point someone made earlier about the brilliance of the insights into the human mind you keep showing in every chapter, you seem to have a great understanding of psychology way beyond your years (if I may), which gives a lot of texture to this amazing story.
Brilliant writing as usual, can’t wait to read more!
This is by far the best chapter I have EVER read on this site...Simply perfectly written! Enough said...
I like this Kara, standing up to Arlington; showing him that he has underestimated her and demanding that he give her the respect that she deserves, especially at the end when first she points out his weaknesses to him and forces him to confront them (as no one else has ever done), and then she selfless works to treat his injuries, even though she "hates" (does she really?) him. But I guess her comment "Integrity before happiness" has a greater effect on him. Is this another reminder of his former protege'/lover? I assume she broke his heart and helped to turn him into what he is, correct? Is Kara the one to "fix" him ? It appears that he embodies much of what she finds attractive in a man and I have to wonder if, under different circumstances in which she could be with him voluntarily because she wants his domination, then they would be together, and does he realize this, and if so, will he change things to make this happen? What is more important to him, to have her or to own her; to love and dominate her as a dominant lover, or break her and subjugate her as a slave?
Phil (AKA Literoticareader99)
This was the moment we've all been waiting for and it was so fucking hot.
Incredible chapter! Kara isn't just coming into her own anymore...she's an all-out fighter! I love where you've taken Kara's and Arlington's relationship. All the twists and turns keep me wanting more! Thanks for your work...can't wait until chapter 25!
This was a welcome and unexpected pleasure.
I have noticed that Arlington now thinks of Kara as 'his girl' and not his slave. This is a subtle distinction that may just become important in the future.
Why you sneaky, conniving little cunt," Lord Arlington growled, well aware that he was letting his anger show and not caring even a tiny, little bit. "You'll pay dearly for sticking your nose where it isn't welcome."
"We're almost even, Arlington," Kara replied, still standing tall and refusing to break eye contact, even as Arlington's features twisted further. "You know now that, deep down, I'm a pervert. But I know that, deep down, you have a soft, vulnerable spot and when I find it, I'm going to exploit you every bit as much as you've exploited me."
Somebody correct me if I am wrong but I don't recall David calling anybody a cunt before. And now he realised that she knows more damaging things about him then he does about her.
I am also wondering when somebody is going to find a memory recall device and use Kara again to remember the details. Is that not going to be an easier/quicker course of action then finding Greenwood.
Now Mr Cross owes Nardia for goods nor recieved. Perhaps he can be utilised to stike back at Arlington or his 'pets'.
Lord Sillias - who said she went along with whatever plan they had. Losing David Arlington in a 'freindly fire' incident may just satisfy some people. Alice was concerned about her masters status so perhaps Kara is correct about somebody else wanting to stick a knife in his back. Sillias wanted details about kara's escape - why?
Perhaps to further undermine Arlington in the event his assasination failed. We know some people were concerned about warring with Nardia. Perhaps losing David Arlington would provide causses Belli without implicating Isleydor and advancing her politics.
Even if this is not happening - could Arlington be made to think it could happen?
Loving it and eagerly awaiting chapter 25.
OMG that was an awesome dance, both with words and the actual dancing. you are awesome hispet. i love this best chapter yet and can't wait for more :-)
I hate you so much for this chapter it was so flipping good.. ugh please update soon, the same was genius and I love that Kara didn't cower
I too love this side of Kara and in turn the nuances it brings out in Arlington. I was firmly in camp Ben, but this....this is something I can get behind. Wow! Just when I have it all figured out you swipe the rug!
Sounds like Kara and Arlington have met before! Did she secretly save his life? Awesome!! More dimension! I love it!
but I thought HisPet in an earlier posting in answer to a reader question said that Kara never did save Arlington when she was secretly working on saving Isleydor's soldiers. Also in this chapter Kara said "She had long, blonde hair too, didn't she?". I believe that Kara was referring to Airrelyn and herself but doesn't Kara has long brown hair? Can you tell that I am beyond obsess with this story. Good luck with the upcoming big exam. We're all chomping at the bits for the second round of the negotiations but we realize that real life must take priority.
Sublime, incredibly erotic and just plain awesome. I'm a fan! Please update soon, I'm in a state of withdrawel already!
UnfuckingBelievable!...awesome chapter..I'm thoroughly hooked
