Introduction



Image



Image For centuries, the supernatural has been terrorizing the humans. Killing them for sport or food. Using them as slaves or berating them for pleasure. The stronger the supernaturals felt the more humans died. A society of Hunters formed to kill the supernaturals that were killing or harming humans. As the hunter society started to become widely known among the supernaturals, many of them went into hiding. The human population doubled over without the supernatural population control. But of course a few supernaturals fall through the cracks. There is a war about to break out between Hunters and all Supernaturals. No one is safe anymore. Even the supernaturals that were hiding were now being hunted down.



ImageThe hunter society lives by a code. The code states that "Only hunt those that hunt us." Innocent supernaturals that find other means of food or don't hurt humans are spared. Everyone else is free game. Hunters tend to use various weapons. From automatic weapons to the basic sword. It all depends on the hunter. Only pure iron or pure gold can truly harm supernaturals. To be sure they are dead, they are shot in the head or in the heart for good measure. Among the hunter society is a highly skilled and wise ground of hunters. They are famously known as Moonlight. They are the hunters that deal with the most dangerous of supernaturals. The ones that take out the best of hunters. There punishments vary from torture to death and everything in between. When one of the members of the Moonlight died, it started the war.

ImageRegardless of how much practice or how long of a werewolf life one has lived, the transformation to and from was always painful. To some more than others. In Mathias' case, he had enough practice to where the pain was just barely bearable. That's one of the main reasons he normally opted to not do it in front of Verena. Appearing weak, like a kicked puppy, wasn't exactly the ideal image he wants her to have of him. He was thankful that she chose not to watch, though his nerves still raged at the thought.

Much to his surprise, this transformation felt like none he'd ever felt before. It hurt, of course, but nowhere near as much as it should have. Perhaps it was the adrenaline of having killed a demon in plain sight that still coursed through his veins or the idea of wanting to look tough in front of the woman he loved. Whatever it may be, he was up on his feet and dressed in record time without so much as a single grunt of pain. Unfortunately, the emotional strain wasn't something the adrenaline could cover up. "Alright...let's go." he muttered before settling into the driver's seat.


ImageEliana's gaze scanned the taller demon's every feature. There was something unsettling about the way he looked at Jakub, but even more unsettling was the feeling that she definitely know his face. Eli voiced her thoughts as to the where and when. In reality, she hadn't a single clue. She was, however, one hundred percent positive of two things. Firstly, that she knew this creature from somewhere. The fact that Eli admitted to recognizing his face firmly supported that theory. And secondly, that he was very bad news.

"Listen Eli...I know I said this about Jake before but I was just worried because of what he is. But this guy...he just radiates trouble" her eyes traveled to the figure once again before continuing. "I don't like him..." As much as it would pain her to admit, Eliana had come to like Jakub. In reality, she never fully distrusted him only distrusted what he was. But this new character, there was something about the way he walked in and took command, the way he demanded answers, the way he spoke to Jake, that just didn't sit right with her. "Lucio..." she muttered the name under her breath, the one Jakub has used for the man just minutes ago. "Does that ring any bells to you?" she asked, lifting her voice enough for her brother to hear.


ImageIt took Jakub every muscle in his body to not talk back to Lucio, but the demon knew that's exactly the reactions he loved getting. Instead, he opted to take in a deep breath and nod as Lucio spoke. Technically speaking, he was right. Assuming he hadn't ordered those demons to attack Verena and Mathias, the situation was out of his hands. Jakub didn't consider Lucio worthy of the benefit of the doubt, but his friends had made a mess and Eli was waiting for him outside the restaurant so arguing would accomplish nothing. "Fine. But I hope the rest of your goons learned their lesson.'

Jakub was finished speaking to Lucio, having had enough of him for one lifetime. However, Lucio wasn't finished speaking with him, and to ensure that, Eli's name was dropped. It took everything in his power to not threaten with ripping him apart limb by limb if he so much as touched a single hair on Elias' head. The demon was already curious enough, and Jakub refused to give him any leads. Instead, he put on a subtle smirk and playfully patted Lucio's right cheek. "That's none of your concern." He had half a mind to just leave, but given that the mess was partially Vera and Matt's fault, Jake allowed a couple of his tattoos to roam off his body and assist with the cleaning of the restaurant as he made his way to the twins. They would make it back to him on their own.

ImageVerena could hear the bones popping into place behind her, but she did not hear him make any noises to show that he was in any pain. Vera knew better though. His transformation was never easy to watch an she usually never had to deal with it. As much as she hated that wolfpack, they really took care of her Matty while he was dealing with his transformation. She wouldn’t have even know what to do if they were just at home and had shifted uncontrollably. Luckily or her, Mathias was a skilled werewolf. He may have some hiccups, but for the most part he has a lot of self control. "Alright...let's go." The demoness was going to offer to drive, but she wasn’t even given the chance. Matty was already in the driver’s seat so she took her place in the passenger seat. The car started up in silence and they were off.

Vera looked over to her wolf, with a slight frown on her face. All the excitement she had felt from killing those demons in the restaurant had left her body. And as much as she would love to relive the moment of how powerful Mathias looked ripping the head off a demon she knew better than that. He was a pacifist. Fighting and killing were things he tried to avoid at all cost, but tonight he had to give in. It saved them both. Verena reached over and gently took hold of one of Mathias’ free hands. She didn’t know how to start the conversation or even help him deal with his emotions, but she wanted him to know that she was going to listen and try her best to make him feel better.



ImageElias glanced over to the restaurant door hoping to see Jakub come out, but he hadn’t. He was still in there talking to the taller demon that looked quite familiar. Both him and his twin agreed on this and yet there was no idea as too why. A distant memory or maybe even just a glimpse of him that was burned into their mind from one of their many hunter expeditions. Eli and Elie have seen so many demons that recognizing him and not being able to place him felt quite normal. "I don't like him..." Elias usually had a witty comeback when it came to his twins and her feelings, but she had a point about this one. Although he seemed harmless and genuinely seemed concerned about what happened in the restaurant, there was a darkness surrounding him that was hard to ignore. Eli shook his head at his twin. He did not recognize the name at all. He was not on any wanted list that he had taken the liberty of memorizing. ”I don’t like him either. And I’m going to get answers.” He wasn’t going to explain how nor ask Elie for any help. ”Stay another night with Tim at his house. That will give me one more night with Jake.” He added. One. He wanted to spend more time with his boyfriend, but two he was going to try and get answers from him. The hunter glanced over again to see Jake finally emerging from the restaurant. Elie hadn’t agreed to the plan, but Eli wasn’t going to give her much of a choice.


ImageThe hunter was a touchy subject. Jakub played it off like he wasn’t anyone that mattered, but that wasn’t the case. Lucio knew better than the press the subject further, however. If there is one thing that he has learned about his pet is that he is not one push. Pushing him, breaks him. And Lucio loves a broken Jakub, but only when he also holds power over him. Breaking him now won’t do anything for him. Lucio watched Jake walk out, leaving behind some tattoos that started helping cleaning up right away. Pulling out his phone he immediately texted his hunter friend for a list of hunters in active duty in the area. Lucio was going to do some research.

ImageMathias' eyes focused only on the road as his mind replayed the scenes from the restaurant. Part of him reasoned with himself, reminding his guilt that the demons attacked first. That if he hadn't killed, they would have killed him first. Or worse, hurt Vera. But the other half, the passive half that never wanted to hurt a single hair on anyone's head, made him feel as low as dirt. He kept silent, even when he felt Vera's hand land on his own. There wasn't anything he could say at the moment, or rather he didn't know what to say. She probably felt proud of him but Mathias' felt an entirely different way. He had sworn long ago, after he first turned, that he would never purposely hurt anyone or anything. He just hoped Verena wouldn't try to celebrate what he'd done. He couldn't stomach it.

The car ride was especially quiet, and eventually, they made it to their apartment. Matias parked the car and let the engine die out before letting his head rest against the seat. It was going to be a long night.


ImageElie was slightly surprised to see Eli take a bit of charge over the situation but disappointed by his answer. Neither one of them knew where they had seen the demon before. They had run into many demons during their short life, and no faces ever particularly stood out unless its owner had done something exceptionally bad. There was something about this demon that made Elie think this was the case. But there were no warrants out for his arrest, no warning to stay away from him. Some things just didn't add up.

"Okay...' she said, eyeing Jake as he slowly made their way back to them. "Just be careful. And by careful I mean, report to me if you find anything about this guy but Imagedon't you dare do anything on your own!" she warned. She knew Jakub was enough to protect her brother, but if this demon was indeed dangerous and needed to be captured it would be strictly hunter business.

"Sorry about that." Jakub's words brought Elie out of her thoughts as she turned to face the demon. She had half a mind to ask him for answers herself but she had to make it back to Tim before anything happened. "Have you phones close" she instructed to both of them, earning a nod from Jakub before leaving. The demon turned to Eli, eyes marked with a bit of concern. "Ready to go?" He hoped Eli wouldn't become curious about Lucio, because the last thing he wanted was for him to be involved with that monster in any way, shape or form.

ImageThe car ride was silent. Neither of them were talking and neither of them were really trying to attempt at conversation. Vera held his hand for the entire car ride, just trying to understand how Mathias could feel. She felt quite relieved that the demons were dead and she was overjoyed that her hands were the cause. But she knew that Matty didn’t feel this way at all. Despite his wolf being a powerful and deadly, he never wanted to hurt a soul let alone murder someone. It took everything she had to push away her Berserk pride and be the caring Verena that Mathias had fallen in love with. All she really wanted to say was that those demons deserved a fate worse than death and that the one the wolf killed was lucky his death was swift, but she held her tongue. The car came to a stop before the house and neither of them moved. The demoness was usually always sure of herself, but she had no idea what to do. She didn’t know how to make him feel better and she was positive that just pretending it didn’t happen wasn’t going to work. A deep sigh escaped her and she pulled out her cell phone. She only had this number for emergencies and she was considering this an emergency.

The phone rang twice before Luke picked up. ”I…” She glanced over to Mathias. She was doing this for him. ”I need your help. Something happened and-” Verena gripped the cellphone. ”No I didn’t hurt him, he is alive. Just come over. He needs you more than he needs me right now.” Luke finally agreed and she hung up. She hated him. Hated that he was more helpful than she was. Hated that she needed to ask him for anything! Verena looked over to Matty. ”Let’s go inside, my love. I will make dinner while we wait for Luke.” She said, making the first move to get out of the car.



ImageElias was really glad that his twin just agreed with him. He was not in the mood to argue with her, nor did he have the time. Jakub was returning and he did not want to openly discuss hunting things with his boyfriend around. He nodded at Ellie to show that he agreed with what she said. As soon as he has information then he is going to message her. This is important. Faces come and go, but this one had a place and he wanted to know why. The hunter turned to Jake and nodded. It was time to go. He followed the demon to his car. ”I can stay another night if you want?” Eli of course wanted to actually spend another night with his boyfriend, but he also really wanted the information. Though he wasn’t going to force it. If Jake didn’t want him, then he would just go home. He didn’t have a good enough lie though for Isabelle if he went home without Ellie, though.


ImageTimothy had no idea what was going on. He remained in the car like Eliana had told him and hadn’t moved from the spot. He kept his eyes on the door of restaurant she disappeared into and just waited patiently. A ton of people left the restaurant, heading off in the various directions. Then after what felt like years, Ellie left with several others. She still didn’t come to the car. She was talking to Eli, but he couldn't read their lips. It was too dark. Eventually Ellie made her way back to the car and Tim looked over her, obviously concerned. ’Are you okay? What happened? Where is Eli going?’ He quickly realized that he signed all of that way too quickly. So he started over, but slower and the most important questions. ’Are you okay?’

ImageMathias eyes were fixated on the pavement and trees in front of him. He could hear Verena next to him, talking to someone on the phone. It didn’t take him long to figure out it was Luke. He’d tried his best to hide his emotions, but clearly not good enough. Verena never liked Luke, that much was clear. The fact that she willingly called for him to come over was a clear sign that he was acting strange enough for her to be worried about him. Part of him wanted to protest. He knew having Luke around made Verena uncomfortable, and he’d rather suffer in silence than to do anything to hurt her. However, he wasn’t given much of a choice. Vera hung up the phone before he could get any word in, and Luke was already on his way. The young wold had no choice but to nod, accepting the help he knew he’d need. He stepped out of the car, waiting for Vera to do the same before locking it. Their small apartment felt much too quiet when they stepped inside. Mathias only made it as far as the couch before taking a seat, his mind still repeating the scenes from the restaurant. Perhaps he was being over dramatic, but this was something he couldn’t just forget.



ImageEliana wasn’t too comfortable with Eli staying another night with Jakob, not because he distrusted the demon. Granted, she had her doubts for a while, but Jake had proven many times that he meant Eli no harm. As far as Eliana was concerned, the feelings were real, and she’d never seen her brother so happy. Her main concern was this new demon that was now edged in the back of her mind, and the thought that Eli might try to face him alone the moment he got any useful information. She could only hope and pray that he wouldn’t be so reckless. Though she wasn’t any better. The moment she stepped back into Tim’s car, she was bombarded with questions. She suddenly felt the guilt of dragging him into something so dangerous. [i)(color=purple]”I’m okay, don’t worry.”[/color][/i] she signed, taking a moment to process the other questions. ”Eli is fine too. He’s going to spend the night at his boyfriend’s… she paused, suddenly realizing she might be spending the night with Tim, only this time it wouldn’t be in the woods. She took a moment to breathe before carefully signing her next question. ”Hey...do you...mind if I spend the night with you?” she paused, sudden panic taking over as she realized her wording may not have been the best, and quickly added ”I mean, at your place that is. I- um.” the nerves were clear in the way she moved and smiled, but there was no taking it back now. ”If you’re not cool with that it’s okay though, no pressure!”.



ImageJakob had planned on asking Eli to stay another night, especially after knowing Lucio was curious about him. However, he didn’t expect the hunter to suggest the same. Was he worried? Scared? Maybe he just wanted to spend some more time together. Whatever the reason, Jake wouldn’t turn down his offer. Any extra time he could get with his hunter was golden. ”Haven’t had enough of me yet, huh?” he asked, a flirtatious smile in tow as they settled into Jake’s car. The engine roared on as Jake took. Quick glance around to make sure Lucio wasn’t anywhere in sight before leaning over and giving Eli a quick peck on the lips. ”Stay as long as you want, my dear.”. He let the smirk linger for a bit as he pulled away from the restaurant parking lot and towards his apartment. There was a dark feeling in the pit of his stomach, something that told him to keep Eli as close to him as he possibly could.

ImageVerena had more self control than she realized. Or maybe that was just when she was around Mathias. Either way, she was still in shock that she even managed to get through her phone call with Luke without breaking her phone. It wasn’t that Luke was a bad person, he just hated demons. And Vera was no exception. Luke was always so sure that she would do something to hurt him or betray him. And Verena knew that if Matty didn’t love her so much, Luke would have taken him away from her without question. And now she was worried that tonight would be that night. Luke, of course, was going to blame her for this. She tried not to think about it as she headed inside the house. Matty sat on the couch and Vera was so worried about him. Her heart felt heavy and she hated that she couldn’t help him. The demoness went up behind the couch and kissed the top of Matty’s head. ”I’m going to cook.” Usually she would ask if he wanted to watch, help, or if he had any requests but she doubted that he wanted to answer.

She shuffled over to the kitchen and quickly got to work. She was just going to fry chicken, sautee vegetables, and whip up some macaroni and cheese. Vera would be lying if she said that she wasn't hungry. Their dinner was interrupted and if she was hungry then her wolf for sure was hungry, even if he was kind of in his own world at the moment. Time felt like it was moving so slow in the silence as she cooked. Finally there was a knock at the door. She turned the stove off. ”I got it Matty.” She skipped over to the door, not even giving him the chance to get up. Vera opened the front door and didn’t even pretend like she was happy to see Luke, but the concern was written in her eyes. ”He is on the couch and I’m making dinner. You are welcome to stay and eat.” She said, stepping aside and shutting the door behind him. Verena went back to the kitchen to finish making everything.



ImageElias settled into the car and put on his seatbelt. Jake agreed to allow the hunter to stay another night. He was looking forward to it, despite wanting to get some answers. Honestly, even if he wasn’t getting any answers he was still really happy to stay another night with Jake though he isn’t really good at showing it. They shared a quick kiss and a small smile came to his lips and he nodded in acknowledgement. Good to know that the hunter has yet another place he can retreat too when he needed to just get away from being a hunter. They began heading over to the apartment and his head was filled with so many questions that he did not even know where to begin or how to begin. It wasn’t long before the were back at Jake’s place Eli slipped out of the car and towards the front door. ”Who was that demon, Jake?” He felt like he waited long enough. This question was only going to eat away at him and he wanted to know. Eli decided to not add the part about how that demon looks familiar, he didn’t want to freak him out.


ImageTimothy was just happy that Eliana and her twin were fine. After learning about all this hunter and demon situation, he was freaked out more. He knew that the two of them could take care of themselves and if Elie said they were okay then she meant it. He tried not to let the worry be obvious.The subject was then changed, as did her signing abilities. He was able to understand her question, but she as very clearly nervous. She signed slow and kind of sloppy but it was cute. Timothy smiled at her and nodded. ’Of course you can. I will even order us a pizza. Since I’m not the best cook.’ He said jokingly before pulling up his phone to open up the pizza app. Once Eliana was in the car, he handed her the phone. ’Order what you want. I am not picky.’ Timothy started up the car and began driving them back to his place.

ImageMathias knew Verena was worried, and he did appreciate how she was trying to help by inviting Luke over. Though he wasn't entirely sure how that would help. Luke had always been like an older brother figure to him, but this was something that only Mathias could fix. He heard the door, his head tilting slightly to see Luke walk in as Vera disappeared into the kitchen again. The older wolf quietly made his way over, taking a seat on the couch beside Mathias. "Hey kiddo..." his eyes wore concern, but also confusion, and Mathias wondered if the man even knew why he'd been called over. "What's going on?"

The young wolf's eyes watched his Alpha for a moment before letting a sigh slip his slips, leaning back on the couch. [color=#gray]"It's not a big deal."[/color] he muttered, his finger fidgeting with the sleeves of his jacket. He felt a hand on his shoulder, knowing Luke well enough to know the man wouldn't leave until he got answers. There was a beat of silence before Mathias' head was lifted again. "I killed someone, Luke...on purpose." As much as he tried, the Alpha couldn't hide the surprise as his hand slipped from Mathias' shoulder to his lap. "okay..." the younger wolf could tell the man was trying to think of every possible scenario that would have to happen for Mathias to kill someone but was coming up short. "It was a demon, he and his friend attacked us and i just-". Luke nodded in understanding, not needing to hear any more of the story. "So it was self-defense."


ImageEliana could count on one hand all the times she had felt anxious. They all had to do in one way or anything with her and Eli's long-lasting investigation to find the demon that murdered their parents. Feeling anxious in a situation like the one she was in at the moment was not normal, yet she couldn't bring herself to act as she normally would. Tim graciously agreed to let her stay the night at his place, which she was grateful for. Otherwise, she would have had to stay at some hotel while Eli tried to gather intel on the sketchy demon. At least now Tim knew what she was and who she did, so talking to him should have been a little easier. Still, her heart pounded irrationally fast as they made their way to his house. She eyed the phone she was handed for a moment, putting in an order for a meat lover's pizza before handing it back. As they drove, a realization came which only made her nerves swarm like bees. "This will be my first time seeing where you live." she signed as they came to a stop at a light. She had no idea what kind of place Tim had.


ImageJakub couldn't stop thinking about Lucio, more specifically, he couldn't stop thinking about the look on his face when he asked about Eli. He didn't like nor trust it. There was nothing that would stop the demon from harming Eli if he so felt like it. As the two made their way up to Jake's door, the demon tried to push the thoughts aside and focus on his boyfriend, however, it seemed that the latter was also thinking about the same thing. ”Who was that demon, Jake?” Jakub's body froze on the spot, his brain scrambling for an answer that would firstly, not alarm Eli and secondly, not feed his curiosities. "Who, Lucio?" he turned to face the hunter as the apartment door closed, his best poker face in place. "Just a giant pain in my ass. Don't worry about him." Jakub carefully avoided the "ex-boyfriend" title. He was sure he hadn't mentioned the demon's name when he talked to Eli about how he'd been practically forced to sleep with him, but he was certain he'd briefly touched on their history together. Jake's words were carefully calculated to make sure Eli didn't make a connection between that demon and the one at the restaurant. "Why do you ask?"

ImageVerena was trying to ease her nerves. She was beyond worried for Matty, but Luke was here now. She didn’t know what that wolf would do for her wolf, but she was willing to do whatever it was that needed to be done. He was so shaken up. For the demoness, this was another day. Killing wasn’t something she had to think twice about. But this wasn’t about her. Vera listened on the conversation that the two were having, while cooking. Matty finally said out loud what he had done. His wolf killed a demon. But it was to protect them. They were being attacked, unprovoked and they were going to kill them if they didn’t do anything. The demoness kept all the details to herself. It was irrelevant to the story. She finished dinner and put the food on two plates. She brought the plates of food out to the males, setting it on the coffee table. Mathias hadn’t eaten so he needed to eat. She wasn’t sure about Luke, but he was getting a plate anyway. It was out of respect for his alpha status. She went back to the kitchen and poured herself a glass of wine before getting her own plate of food.


ImageTimothy took his phone back and set it down in the cup holder of his car. The radio was playing music rather loudly, but only so he could feel the bass. It was a soothing feeling. And it wasn’t like he needed to hear. Eliana was more than welcome to turn it up or down. He did not want to mess up her hearing. Tim glanced over to her and smiled. It would be the first time she would have seen his place. In fact, not many people come over to TIm’s house. It’s not that he doesn't want people over, he just usually always prefers going out to do something. ’I will make sure to give you a tour.’ His apartment was close to the college. He liked being close to it so that he didn’t have to worry about driving there. Tim pulled up and turned the car off. He unlocked the door once they were both out of the car. ’Welcome to my home. Please make yourself comfortable.’


ImageElias filed into the apartment behind Jakub, shutting and locking the door. It was nice to no longer be in a crowd of people. He hated being around so many people at once. He can deal with people in small increments, but that was just too much. He undid his gun holster as Jakub turned to answer his question. Just some annoying demon? It didn’t feel that way. There were plenty of the supernaturals in the building, but all of them seemed to be at the mercy of Lucio, Jakub, and Verena. That isn’t a coincidence. That meant his boyfriend and his friend were more powerful than they had been letting on. Usually when the two are together they don’t speak much about hunting or life as a demon. They just talk like two normal people dating. But tonight, it wasn’t going to be like that. Elias wanted to know more. "Why do you ask?" He wasn’t sure how to answer the question. He didn’t want to lie, but he also did not want to worry him. ”He seemed powerful. You and Verena too.” He admitted, setting his holster and guns in his bag. He then took a seat on the couch. ”Everyone in that restaurant was afraid of you three. Why?” The hunter was not going to beat around the bush.

ImageMathias knew LUke was right, but getting over something like this wasn't so easy. Sometimes he wished he had the mentality of a demon. Surely someone like Verena wouldn't have this problem. BUt Mathias different. He was raised and taught differently. During his years with the pack, he was always taught not to harm others. That included humans, hunters, supernaturals and yes, even demons. That's why his and Verena's relationship worked so well. His species was always thought to respect the lives of other beings. No matter how much his pack didn't trust Verena, they would never do anything to hurt her. They would never do anything to hurt anyone. "I'm sorry Luke..." the alpha put a soft hand on his shoulders to grab the younger wolf's attention and shook his head. "You have nothing to be sorry for, kid." There was a short pause, during which Vera came in with plates of food and set them on the table. Matt gave her a thankful smile before she disappeared into the kitchen again. "Look, I get why you're feeling guilty." Luke continued. "But if it'd been me, and any of my pack members were in danger...I would have done the same." Luke then took one of the plates from the table and handed it to Mathias. "Now eat, I can't have a hungry wolf showing up to work."


ImageEliana wasn't sure what she expected Tim's home to look like, but she wasn't surprised by it at all. It reflected his personality to a certain perfection. The Huntress took a quick look around before turning to Tim. "It's so nice and homey." she signed, her sentences slowly returning back to normal. The nerves were still present, however, they were a bit calmer than they had been on the ride over. Part of her blamed it on it being her first night at Tim's home, just the two of them. But she knew it wasn't just that...the face of that demon from the restaurant was so engraved into her head that she could hardly focus on anything else. She trusted Eli to take care of himself, and as much as she didn't want to admit it, she trusted Jake too. That didn't stop her from worrying. "I'm sorry I invited myself over so suddenly...It's just, um..." there were so many things Eliana wanted to share with Tim. About her work, about her brother dating a demon, about how she was a nervous wreck and couldn't focus on anything other than whether her brother would be okay or not. But they weren't his burdens to carry. He had already seen more than he should have with the random demon attack back at their campsite. She couldn't in good conscious pull him into such a dark and dangerous world. "Well nevermind. Pizza should be here soon."


ImageSomewhere in the back of his mind, Jake knew Eli would eventually grow curious about him. About Verena. About his past. He had been fully preparing to answer the hunter's questions, but he had hoped it wouldn't be so soon. However, after everything that went down at the restaurant, it was to be expected. A soft sigh left the demon's lips as he set aside his phone and keys, and took a seat on the couch beside Eli. His deep blues held many secrets, and as much as he wanted to be completely honest with Eli, there were certain things he would rather keep to himself. At least for the time being.

"I'm over four centuries old, Eli...and just like humans change over time, so do supernatural beings." He let one arm hang over the back of the couch, taking Eli's own hand in the other. "I've done a lot of things I'm not proud of. When we were younger, Vera and I used to...kill for fun." as much as he had been the one to do it, saying it out loud made his stomach turn. "And even though I'm not like that anymore. I haven't been for a while...we still have a pretty strong reputation." he slowly let go of Eli's hand, trying to arrange his thoughts in the safest way he could possibly say them. "You're a hunter, so you know how demon ranks work. Vera and I are in the highest ranks when it comes to power." he paused, realizing this may be the first time he had ever talked to Eli about the subject. He would have rather avoided it completely, but all he could do now is hope Eli wouldn't treat him any different. As if on cue, the scattered tattoos that Jake had left at the restaurant finally returned to his arm as he continued. "There's only one demon that could be considered more powerful than our ranks. That's the one you say at the restaurant today."
