    Summary

    The prize for winning the tournament, however, turns out to be much more than he ever expected.

    Summary

    Keith shouted, dropping the lamp.The smoke billowed, grew, threatened to overtake him, then coalesced into a distinct shape. Shoulders, waist, hips, arms, head.

    A man. That was a man.

    A helluva fine man.

    He was a study in metallics. Bedecked in jewelry but with all white hair, tinged silver. Mercurial eyes. Right hand crafted out of gold, veins of it climbing up past his shoulder and kissing his clavicle. A streak of gold scored across the bridge of his nose, like a scar. He was shirtless, yards of gleaming muscle revealed to feast upon.

    And he also wore bright blue harem pants and nipple piercings so...yeah.

    The smoke dispersed, leaving only him and that dull oil lamp at his feet. The man turned, movements stiff. His gaze found Keith’s. “Oh Master of the Lamp—.”

    Keith screamed.

    --
    Or: Keith's a professor of Ancient Galra History and Culture and finds a lamp that contains a beautiful man because of course it fucking does.

    I have no excuse for this. I just really, really liked the 3 am thought of Genie Shiro.

    Summary

    "Some men are born warriors. Some are born with other destinies," I whispered in answer, trying to keep my voice placating.

    "Like to warm the warriors' beds?"

    When the translator repeated the words the Warlord leered down at me, I couldn't help the blush I knew rose to my cheeks.

    "If all you know is sex and battle, what a poor life you have lived," I hissed.

    I could tell the translator didn't want to repeat my rebellious words, but with a flick of the Warlord's fingers to urge him on, he had no choice.

    The Warlord's bellowing laugh and taunting reply echoed around the throne room, although the translator couldn't even repeat them before the Warlord began again, this time in broken El'kahrian- my own language.

    "I choose Amer Groban, son of Jon Groban the third, as my Warprize," the Warlord growled out loud enough for the entire courtyard to hear.

    He met my eyes, his own shining with laughter. His whispered words, meant only for me, were translated by a near-silent, confused translator. "You are no coward, little mate. Your fire is as deep as your heart. I will enjoy making that fire mine."
