Speed Date My Heroine — Sphinx United

by Em Petrova

Speed dating questions – From  Point of View Eleina


1) What do you do for work?  I am a Priestess of the Great Pyramids of Giza.  At one time I used my Powers along with my sisters to protect the Sphinx Warriors as they battled against the evil Wraith.  Because the Warriors no longer had a Power Keeper to draw the ancient Powers and keep them strong they grew weaker until in a last ditch effort Khenti Michael risked his life to destroy the last of the Gates.  He was partially successful but almost lost his life in the process.  The Warriors grew weaker over time and in an effort to save them I Jumped one of the last remaining Gates.  I was trapped in the thing for centuries but in a miracle found my way back.  Since then, Jacob, the man I love more than anything, has helped me to recover from my harrowing experience.  I am still finding my way but will use my skills as a Priestess and my skills of fighting to stand by my love’s side.

2) Where are you from?

I am originally from Egypt in the area of Giza where the Four Pyramids of Power stood for centuries protecting the world from the Wraith.  My people, the Sphinx, are originally from Athenia but after the Wraith destroyed their planet they took the last of their technology and came here to Earth along with the Athenians.  The Athenians over time adopted the name of Egyptians but the Sphinx kept theirs.  Eventually the last remaining Gate ended up in Arizona where the Sphinx live and battle the Wraith in Complex 46.

3) What is the one thing about yourself that you would like me to know?  My love for Jacob.  I would do anything for him.  For centuries Priestesses and Warriors were forbidden to Join but we still loved each other and stayed as close to each other as we could.  Jacob was always there for me and I know it hurt him when he thought I had died.  But I found my way back and I will make it up to him.  In this modern day Earth there are no rules keeping us apart and we can now be together.

4) When was your last relationship and how long did it last? There has only been one relationship I ever wanted.  To be with Jacob.  It has been centuries since we were separated from my being trapped in the Gate.  Now that I am back I am not quite the same.  I have a lot of healing to do both physically and mentally but I am getting stronger thanks to him.  We will resume where we left off and be stronger together.  He is my everything.

5) Do you want to marry or have you ever been married?   I have never been married but want to Join with Jacob.  When Sphinx commit to each other it is so much more than just marriage.  Our very Life Forces Join until we are basically one.  Each breath and heartbeat are shared between those who are Joined and out Powers feed from one to the other.  We are completely and totally committed down to our very lives.  When one dies, the other will follow, because there is not life without the other.

6) What do you do for fun?  Fun.  Such a tempting word.  As a Priestess I had so many responsibilities, trapped within the Gate was nothing but a terrifying nightmare where I almost lost my sanity and my life, and now I am just trying to get my head on straight.  The last fun I had was the occasional stolen moments with Jacob out by the waterfalls.  It was the only place we could meet and not be caught.  Jacob would steal kisses but I was quite willing.  I can hardly wait until we can do that again.  Kisses and so much more so that life will actually be fun.

7) What are you most proud of?  Risking my life for those I love.  I couldn’t have handled it if Jacob and the other Warriors had died.  Although it might have cost my life, I risk everything again without reservation, and I might have to again.  The battles against the Wraith are getting so much worse again and I have to find a way to save them no matter what.

8) Do you believe in love at first sight?  Yes.  The first moment I saw Jacob with his long blond hair and velvet brown eyes took my breath away.  The man is all Warrior with his tall good looks and his rock hard muscles.  Just thinking of him now takes my breath away.

9) What is your most treasured possession and why?  A diamond tear drop necklace that Jacob made for me.  I’ve always had an affinity to water and my Powers seem to center in liquid especially when I am sick or injured like now.  I have spent lots of time in the natural waterfall pool in the Garden Dome of the Complex.  It is astoundingly beautiful with all of its wild-life, plants, and natural surroundings.  There is so much Life Power that lives there and that is making me stronger than ever before.  Anyway, I am sad to say that my necklace was stolen from me and I’m not sure where it went but I will find it.

10) What is your favorite music and who is your favorite singer/band?  I am new to the modern day music but I do love the beat of what humans call rock and roll.  Stormy, our Power Keeper, likes Nickelback and she played a group called Theory of a Dead Man.  I like that band too.

11) Do you like animals/keep pets?  I love animals.  They soothe the inner Sphinx.  We have lots of varieties from birds to deers, to rabbits, to every other kind of animal.  My favorite is the humming bird.  Just watching its flight is amazing and the shimmery colors of reds, purples, greens that they have in their feathers.  I really don’t have time for an actual pet but do like to go to the Garden Dome and watch the animals there as they frolic and play.

12) How do you spend your spare time?  Right now I am working out to re-strengthen my body from the injuries I sustained trapped inside the Dimensional Gate.  I also practiced with battle techniques and sword-play.  Once my Sefu Element, the partial living, partial elemental entity which bonds with us and resides on our hand and wrist in a bracelet form, heals, then I will practice reflexing it into its deadly Power Sword form.  On my Sefu is the Power Signature which is unique to all of us Sphinx.  Mine is a Egyptian Solar Winged Disk.

13) Where do you see yourself in five years time? I am praying to the Ancients that I will be Joined with Jacob and that we are living a full and wonderful life.  Before then we must find a way to defeat the Wraith and destroy the last Dimensional Gate.  To do that we must recover the Pages of Seven and I am determined to do just that.  I will save the Sphinx Warriors even if I have to give up being here in five years.

14) Do you believe a cup is half empty or half full?   Always half full.  Each sip of life is precious and we must enjoy every drop that is given to us.  I have always savored each drop, especially with Jacob and hope to continue for as long as I can.  Drink the liquid of life I say and enjoy it to the fullest.

15) You have got six months to live, what will you do first?  Love Jacob no matter what and Join with him.  Save him and the Sphinx if at all possible.  I may have less than six months if they don’t figure out what is wrong with me and even if they do I may have to risk my life and Jump the Gate again if things don’t get better.  I don’t want to die but I will do anything to save those I love.

16) Is sexual compatibility important to you?  Absolutely.  For us Sphinx it comes hand in hand with everything else about us that draws us to our Power Mate.  Sex is a part of the Joining that takes place between two Power Mates destined for each other.  Not only do our bodies Join but our Life Forces Join as well on a level that connects us forever.  Part of the act of passion of Joining is the release of our Power which glitters on our skin.  One day soon I hope to Join with Jacob and have his Power all over me.

17) If you won a lottery, how would you spend your millions?  Money is a strange thing coveted by humans.  Us Sphinx really don’t have any use for it.  We have everything here we need in Complex 46 and the Egyptians take care of us as we risk our lives to take care of them, the Earth, and humans.  I have been told everything we have comes from money and the connections we have in this world.  So, I guess if I won a lottery I would give it to my people to continue  with supporting my people and our mission to keep this world protected from the Wraith and its evil leader, Turin.

18) If you have friends coming over, what would you cook?  Smile.  I don’t even know how to cook.  Have always been taken care of in that aspect.  Still if I had Jacob over I would feed him grapes, delicate flavored cheese, crispy crackers, and the finest of wines.  He would feed me the richest of chocolate and find any reason to taste what was left on my lips.  He is such a romantic.

19) Describe your perfect vacation.   My perfect vacation would be visiting the ocean.  I love the water and have seen pictures of the encompassing blue-green waters.  I would love to feel the salt-water on my skin and smell the scents of the sea.  As I said I have an affinity for water and with that much surrounding me I am sure my Powers would be even stronger.  I would be able to give Jacob all the Power he needs to be strong and healthy and to help destroy the Gate.  Once we were free of the evil we could lie on the beach and just enjoy each other under the stars.  We would look to the heavens and know that the universe was so much safer.

20) Are you a morning person or a night person?  I love the night.  I think all of the Sphinx are night people mostly because our inner animals are nocturnal by nature.  We are more alive and alert during the night hours which is a good thing because that is normally when the Dimensional Gate opens and our enemy tries to destroy this world.  On the nights that we do not battle we rest and play and if we have a Power Mate we make worship each other and make love until the early morning light.
