Dark and Honest

My next piece for the prompt table I posted HERE. Check it out. I'm still accepting suggestions.

The prompt from redvelvetcanopy was dark and honest to be written in the Technomage world.

Title: Dark and Honest
Author: triskellion
Rating: G
Warning: None
Word Count: 133
Summary: First impressions can be deceiving.


He was a dark man. A single glance could tell that. It radiated from the contrast between his pale skin and black hair, from the depths of his brown eyes, from the stern expression on his face.

Learning that he was an Ivanovich only made the impression stronger. The Ivanovich's were known for their deadly spells, power plays, and habit of playing with lives. The Russian Revolution? That little act left them the power behind the throne, so to speak, for decades.

But it wasn't his visible self or his name that intrigued Belle – it was his heart. She could see the kindness that hid behind that dark mask, the pain he radiated to her acute senses, the honesty in his soul despite his devious upbringing. It was the contrast that she craved.
