Steel is still trying to find a way to get home.

An established relationship story.

Written: October 2009. Word count: 300.




For the hundredth time Steel reached out with his mind and tried to achieve what seemed to be the impossible: touch Silver's mind.


He knew he was taking a huge personal risk as he'd taken himself down to a level that was not safe, but it allowed him to reach further. And he should be able to touch Silver. He should be able to sense Silver. But he couldn't. His lover's mind should be readable. But it wasn't.


Not since one terrible mind scream that had knocked Steel off his feet and caused his own mind to burn had he sensed anything. It was as though somehow Silver's mind was locked to him. As if someone had found a way to sever the link between them. But that wasn't possible. No mind could block joined partners; at least not when one of the partners was Steel. Besides, Silver's mind wasn't blocked, that Steel would sense. It was locked to him.


Realising the attempt, like the others, was futile, Steel ceased to try and began to push his body temperature back up to a safe level.


He looked around him. He'd been with the Transient Beings for longer than he had anticipated. He had done things he regretted; things he wished he hadn't had to do. Things that gave him the odd waking nightmare. He'd done them for two reasons: to save Silver and to save Them.


Now, with Silver's mind seemingly locked to him, he had to move more quickly. He had to find a way back. He had to get back and convince Them of the danger. For the first time since he'd 'joined' the Transients Beings, he feared neither was possible. But to think so wasn't acceptable. He had to find a way to make the impossible possible.
