Throughout the course of my existence, I have got to spend some time with some very interesting people. For the most part, I tend to stay to myself and kind of simply hang out in the shadows. When you become immortal like I have, it changes your perspective of life completely. Suddenly, you start to realize that the people around come and go like seasons. When you are more or less a living god, your life changes in ways that I cannot not really even begin to describe. People start to fall like leaves from the tree. You want so badly to have that connection with someone, but you realize that it is more trouble than what it is worth. Questions begin to arise after a while. Why are you not changing, or aging? What do you do in your spare time? Why do you leave so often? Then, you realize that you will never be able to put things into perspective for that person, so you pretty much just give up and leave. It becomes complicated because as much as you love a person, you realize that you must walk away from them because the situation is not healthy for either one of you. They will never understand your life. Yourself, you could go crazy getting attached to people who are bound to leave you sooner or later. So, living in the shadows, always just out of the human eye becomes your solace, because it is the only thing that makes sense. This is why I have devoted my entire existence to finding magic and delivering to others; sometimes you need to do something to take your mind off the fact that you will never be the same once you become an immortal. This is why I say that being an immortal is not only my biggest blessing, but it is also my biggest curse.
When I first met Salome, I had no clue that she was also an immortal. I met her in Rome, while I was doing an investigation at the Vatican. There have been many times when I had to disguise myself as one of the Vatican's top officials in order to gain access to the underground vaults. Given the fact that I have plenty of pieces that allow me to shape-shift into, virtually, any being that I want to be this is not a challenge for me. I simply find the piece I want to use for the assignment and I get the job done. I assume the identity and then get what I want. I do not care if they are children of God or not, I have never been caught, nor will I ever be caught. There was one particular investigation, where it occurred that I was not the only person on investigation. There was another on investigation as well and she was one really dangerous femme fatale. She is Salome, the one that I mentioned to you before. The first time I ever held encounter with her was when I had taken the form of a cardinal, in order to gain access to a secret vault that is under the Vatican. Not even she was able to read my disguise, as she thought I was the real thing. I was in a courtyard attending a ceremony, when from across a crowd of faces, I set my upon the brightest brown eyes that I could see in the ocean of people who were in attendance. We made eye contact and I quickly looked away, but when our eyes met for the second time, they locked in a sort of entrapment for both of us. She batted her fluttering eyes at me and the slipped away back into the crowd.
After the ceremony, I went looking for the beauty with the big brown eyes. I desired to know her name. I kept my Cardinal guise, even though I knew that if I did meet her, my intentions were anything but pure. I did not really care, though. It is not that I am about defiling what it means to be a man of God, but this is the form that she had met me in, so if I did come across her again, she would recognize me. I was walking through an alley way, into the entrance of a side street courtyard. It led to the place I had been staying for the time being. I had given up on finding the brown-eyed girl. From behind me I heard a voice like an angel asking me if I had been looking for her. The voice rang in my head like a choir of bells and I froze in excited expectation. As I turned, I encountered the same beautiful countenance I had read earlier. There in front of me was the woman I had spend searching for for the better part of the day. I quickly mustered up a response, telling her that if I had found her was neither nor there, but if she cared she could come in for a glass of wine. She accepted my invited and we soon found ourselves in my bedroom. As she stood there, devoid of any clothes she began dancing for me, humming a soft tune. It was then that I knew immediately who she was; I had read about her many times as a child.
In the times of Herod Antipas, the step-brother who took over control of Galilee after King Herod II, there were two women. They were a very influential and seductive pair. The ironic part is that they were mother and daughter, but there's more to the story. The mother, whose name was Herodias was the former queen of King Herod II. Thirsty for power, when her husband was executed she quickly latched on the new Herod whose name was Antipas and called Antipas for short. She re-married him after putting him under the spell of her seduction. In the times of John the Baptist Herodias came to hate him, wanting his head for her own. She convinced her daughter, who was her former husband's daughter and niece of her new husband, to perform the Dance of the Seven Veils for her uncle. He was so please with the young woman's body and inevitably her ability to seduce and pleasure him that he promised her anything that she wanted. Her conniving mother talked her into asking for the head of John the Baptist on a platter; and so it was done. I know that it seems pretty taboo for this to occur, but it was different times. It really happened, you cannot make stuff like this up.
The daughter, Salome, went on to crave power exactly like her mother had. She eventually turned to dark arts for her craving of power. Over time, she transformed herself into one of the most powerful seductresses in recorded and unrecorded history. She took up studies with Lilith the mother of all succubi and eventually received a fully transformation. She studied dark magical arts and used these powers to put men under her spell in order to gain the riches and power that she wanted. She's more like a black widow, because she comes to the men she seduces and will gladly have sex with them. She loves sex and in modern times people would say that she is a, "nympho,". She has used her seductive sex to draw powers out of the most powerful sorcerers, wizards, warlocks, and a host of other type of men. She has also used her sexual ability to con people into giving her what she wants. She has never wanted for anything. Her mother taught her right and she had plenty of magic under her belt to be able to back it up. I found out the hard way when I nearly fell under her spell.
That night in my bedroom, we spent hours in between the sheets. It was without a doubt the best sexual experience that I have ever had in my entire existence. It was not the first encounter that we had either. The following night we had another rendezvous and the night after that. I found myself deathly attracted to her, desiring her company more and more. Despite the fact that she knew not who I was, she was determined to seduce me to the point that I would allow her into the vault under the Vatican. I think that it is fair to say that she had finally met her match, because I was not budging at all. This process went on for weeks and we even began seeing more of each other. Simple sex turned into dinner and shows, as she was still thoroughly convinced that I was somebody who I was not. I was keen to keep the disguise simply because I actually began falling for her. When the time came for her to realize who I really was, she was not at all pleased with that fact that I had tricked her at her own game. We did have one more night of wild, passionate sex; but in the morning she was gone. On the nightstand next to my bed she left this item.
This item channels the powers of Salome, the succubi seductress. When you wear this piece, you will obtain several things. First things first, you will obtain all of her powers. These powers include the ability to do the Dance of Seven Veils, like she did for King Herod Antipas and myself and likely hundreds of other men, as well. This is metaphoric for the fact that you will gain the ability to seduce the mind others to make the do as you wish. You will also gain all the powers that Salome has gained over the years by stealing them from other people. These include, but are not limited to sorcery, blood alchemy, wealth magic, black magic, white magic, dual magic, witchcraft, wizardry, the ability of astral travel, full psychic awakening, and full powers of a sanguine vampire. After all, this is what a succubus really is. You will also be given her full sex powers, with the ability to give and receive the best sex that you will ever have. You will even be able to channel her to have sex with you, where she will show up in spirit form, if you prefer spiritual, astral sex instead. This piece is unlike any that you have ever experienced or will ever experience. It is definitely just about any power that you can imagine all rolled up into one. I was not going to give it away due to the fact that it was the only memory of Salome that I have ever had; but it is time to let it go.
