I went into Austin last week. Piper had called me up and asked me to come over, and to bring the compass. The most important part he stressed was that I should not utilize the compass until I had brought it with me.
I showed up in town and went to see him. He had someone at his counter wanting desperately to own a grimoire and to be a real mage, but I could tell the person didn’t have the spark. It was kind of sad really.
Finally he came back into the back rooms with me and we talked about the Compass. His understanding is that these compasses are rare and very potent, almost relics. They are made for specific individuals and unless you are attuned to them, they will cause you bad luck, real bad luck.
My compass was made by the two Seelie Courts in a ritual. That would definitely mean I won’t mess with it until it was attuned. Piper said he could attune it with me if I wanted. He even had a way using sex magic.
That caught my interest. I always like having sex with him anyways, and being able to practice magic with him, and especially during sex doesn’t seem to have too many down points.
He did tell me a story about a Wiccan woman who wanted to practice it with him, and the hilarious response he gave her. Ya, I don’t see him doing that with most people. We do get along great together. We both know this is a physical thing. Don’t get me wrong I consider him a close personal friend, but we are not a “thing” or a relationship. It makes it easy, and clean.
He took me downstairs to his ritual room. All the while giving me a hard time because as we stepped into his danky dark basement I made light. True, I think I could see just fine down there, but I like the light, what can I say.
The room itself is beautiful, etched in magical designs with several crossing wards. It will work perfectly. He explained he would bring a bed in, but that I would need to prepare for the ritual by going without sex for a week. I will admit, that was a hard week (HAHA not in the way I would hope) but that week went by without a problem.
I showed up a week later with a white robe and he walked me through a ritual down in the room. It involved the bed, me on my hands and knees and him behind me with the compass on my back. It was an intense session and the sex was good. I suspect I did better than most non-demons, but I do admit I lost part of it at the end with the intensity. At least he kept it together.
So now I have an attuned compass. Now it is time to see what it does.
