Louis knew Nicolas de Lenfent, or rather knew him from Lestats words. He also knew Nicolas had been Lestats first and greatest regret.

Cleansed from this earth by the fire, now his ghost had come back.

 

———-***———-

How luminous he looks to me,
So radient and glorious.
One savage kiss is all he needs
To change a life and make this night victorious.
What princes of the moon we’d be,
Two blazing beacons in the dark.
Desire drives me to take him now.
No force on Earth will ever tear him from my heart.

But why do I go back and forth?
What is this doubt that clouds my thoughts?
Don’t waste the chance and let the night pass by.
He’s mine to take.
He’s right before my eyes.

And so my conscience speaks to me
Of selfishbness and consequence,
The danger that from death I’d make
A stolen soul no longer blessed with innocence
And such a kingdom could be ours,
A wondrous world beyond compare.
Would his bright fire not wish it so?
Surely he’d agree this gift is one that should be shared.

But why do I go back and forth?
What is this doubt that clouds my thoughts?
Don’t waste the chance and let the night pass by.
He’s mine to take.
He’s right before my eyes.

Everything I really need
Is standing here in front of me.
The one thing that my heart should not deny
Is out of reach
But right before my eyes.
He’s out of reach
But right before my eyes
Right before my eyes.

Right Before My Eyes – Lestat the Musical

Promets-moi

“I offered him our Gift,” Lestat said one night as he and Louis was wondering through the urban maze searching for prey.

Louis’s heart skipped a beat, a painful beat. So the choice had been made already?

“He remembers?” Louis found himself speaking. Stupid question. Of course he remembered. This was Nicolas de Lenfent’s reincarnation after all.

For seconds Lestat only stared at Louis, as if he hadn’t expected such a query, or rather, such knowledge from Louis. But he didn’t voice his thought, his doubt, just as he hadn’t questioned how Louis had managed to find him.

His reply came with a sigh. “He declined my offer.”

Should Louis feel relieved upon hearing? He probably should, yet he didn’t. Not a little bit. He knew Lestat well enough. Wasn’t David a perfect example?

As if having read his mind, Lestat said, “I will not turn him.” A pause. A stretched silence. Then resignation. “Having him despising me one lifetime is enough.”

He reached for Louis’s hand and squeezed it, seeking sympathy, perhaps consolation, forgiveness.

Forgiveness for what?

Louis’s hand could only offer him the rigid cold of hunger.

Can you keep your promise this time?

If I cannot, will you stop me?

Louis’s hand squeezed back, harder, almost crushing bones.
