We understand that you,
Have come tonight,
To bare witness to the sound,
of Drum. And. Bass.
We regret to announce that this is not the case,
As instead, we come tonight to bring you,
The sonic recreation of the end of the world,
Ladies and Gentlemen prepare to Hold. Your. Colour-"
"Alright Sweetheart, end of line line, this is Springside."
With a gloves hand the figure sat in the back of the cab tilted one side of her headphones back to better hear the voice of the driver. It was an apparently young woman, probably in her twenties by estimation, dressed in a selection of brightly coloured clothes. Her vivid blue hair was held in place by the thick set of pink and white headphones slung over her head, and a large, metal-frames case sat on the seat next to her, covered with worn-out stickers demarking all sorts of destinations.
As the car pulled up she nimbly hopped out, pulling the case out with her.
"Looks expensive." the driver remarked.
"What is that? Musical instrument or something?"
The woman shook her head, sending her cyan locks bouncing around her head.
"Not exactly." she replied.
"Sound equipment. It's sort of my career."
"Oh, a sound tech...or a DJ sort of thing?"
The blue-haired girl smiled knowingly to herself.
"Something like that. Well Steve you've been a wonderful driver and I'm so grateful that you got me all the way out here."
She reached into her pocket and withdrew a handful of notes, shoving them through the open window of the car.
The driver seemed only too pleased to accept this without question, before returning his attention to the woman. He caught sight of something a little odd on her wrist, a bracelet of sorts, wrapped around several times, with what appeared to be sharp, white teeth strung on.
"Some bracelet you have there. That some sort of religious thing?"
"It's a souvenir. A charm bracelet."
"All the charms look pretty similar."
"I just have a thing for fangs I suppose."
"Uh, ma'am, take care out there, you get some real weirdos hanging around this neck of the woods. Wouldn't go wandering round on your own at night." he warned.
The woman gave another cryptic smile in response.
"Oh I'm sure I can handle myself. Goodbye Steve, have a safe drive back and all the best."
With that she set off into town. She'd seen got a measure of the place. She'd also soon discovered a dead body, drained of the all the red stuff, lying in an alleyway near the outskirts. The scent of vampire and wolf led away into the woods to where the conflict had obviously come to a head, with small splashes of vampire blood scattered around, and a big puddle of wolfblood still lying on the forest floor. Looked like a severe scrap. She had best not wait around then.
Saffir made her way in the direction of the wolf house, keen on stating her intentions. She was planning to take the Springside clan apart..and she was not planning to be nice about it.
Oren meanwhile, her arm and shoulder taped up, went looking for Ace. She wasn't really in the best of moods, but she didn't really want to leave him with the impression that she was massively pissed off with him. Any injury she received made Oren more bitchy than usual, and this was no exception...so she didn't want him left with the impression that she blamed him. Besides, she felt fine at the time and failed to see what the fuss was about.
E made her way downstairs, pausing to grab a few sharp objects from her room. She pulled on a hooded top and went after Ian. Soon she arrived, in time to catch some of the noise from the cave. She rolled her eyes.
"Are they too stupid to realize that caves promote echoes? Hm...if Oren hated my for throwing her in the springs before...I'd love to think of what she'd do if I did it now and told her what had been going on. She'd probably be standing in the shower until next week." she giggled.
"No nothing really, just kinda thinking how hot it is listening to them have sex."
Her mind was very unclear recently from all the trauma. She was most likely getting all kinds of mixed signals.
"My abilities have been on the fritz since the... incident... The mental chatter seems so muddied. It is slowly getting better now that my body is healing."
She kissed his neck biting at it until she saw E approach.
Ari smiled and waved to E.
"Coming with us I see. It is nice to see you again. Guess we will just wait for them to uh... finish up then."
Rick waited for Gabby to finish her cleaning. He started pointing out the various tools, and their functions. Which situations they would be best used for and when not to use them. Simple things, proper way to stitch closed a wound, seal an artery, properly remove a bullet, check vitals. He held up some vials.
"Now these are labeled. Some are types of antibiotics, and these are for poisons, vampire bites, if someone accidentally drinks vampire blood. Stuff like that. I am rather meticulous about my labeling so if it is here it will be clearly marked with it's function."
He neatly folded things away into the bag.
"So this is a complete kit and should be good for caring for just about any wound. Obviously if someone needs surgery it would be best to find me if I'm still around but minor stuff you guys should be able to fix. I am leaving this stuff here for you guys just in case something happens. Your current medical kit is pretty bad. I have not seen Jenson show any interest in learning so is there anyone else? Maybe her second in command?"
Victor laughed a little "Cherie as many times as you have zonked out on me I am sure my shoulder is perimantly drool stained." He grinned at her and kissed her forehead. "Besides you are so run ragged." He bit his lip "I erm you look great though." He grabbed his arms tightly around her wanting to make her feel more relaxed. He let his mind just soak in that she came to him to seek comfort he thought he lost his spot as her blanket, it had been so long since they'd met and had a whirl wind romance that left him chasing her from his home and his familes pack to be with her. She had been so distant and so cold towards him he almost left a thousand times, but she'd give him the dont go look everytime it crossed his mind. He kissed her forhead again.
Lux sat on the bank staring across into the vampires land, that lay in stillness. She rested her head on her paws waiting for something after the last fight she was hoping someone would just come for revenge that they almost took out two vamps and more so since the black hair-should be the leader- women was really wounded. She rolled onto her back looking up at the stars, letting herself start to doze off.
Still sitting there, however, he felt like a pouting child so he stood, brushing off himself of the dirt and stepped out into the open to lean against one of the shelves of chemicals lightly, as to not push it over. Deciding against it, he stood straight up, just crossing his arms and trying not to look completely obvious that he was avoiding her eye contact.
. . . . .
Hayley would have laughed if it was manageable, but the fact that only moaning was pouring from her own mouth kept exploding out moans. She wrapped her arms around his neck as she let him ram into her. She was almost screaming, but she buried her face in his flesh, biting his chest as they went on.
"I....Love..You!" She tried, her voice cutting off as she quickly reached orgasm, she knew he would follow her right after and soon they were done, both of their breath in quick unision of tired and pleasured content.
She really felt like a ho when she stood, pulling on her clothes just as quickly as she had taken them off and began putting them back on. Once dressed, she rumaged her hands through her red mess and shrugged, planting another kiss on his lips then his forehead before pulling away.
"Don't miss me too much...while I am gone." A single tear managing to drop onto his lap before she ran to the Vampires that were waiting for her.
"Sorry, we can........go." She would have felt so much more awkward if she had not been used to people doing it all over the house anyway.
. . . . .
Ian snickerd and nodded. It really was pretty hot.
"It is turning on, I can't wait to get back home." He winked at her and leaned his head back when she kissed him on the neck, his hands going to brush her hair with his fingers.
E arrived and he lifted his head to glance at her, then laying it back down again.
"We are about to head out." He could see that Hayley was heading towards them and he tried to stiffle the laughter that was coming out of him. It was honeslty more hilarious then it would be sexy. Only Ari moaning was truly sexy to him, with Hayley he felt like she was slightly pathetic because he knew she was nowhere near as experienced as him.
"Your sad." He said, smirking, then pulling off of the wall, pulling Ari's hand towards the way they headed. Hayley looked physically upset at this point. With Ian's comment and the knowing of what was to come it was almost too much to handle at this point.
. . . . .
Jenson could not take her eyes off of him. Her hand moving up to his cheek and she grasped his jaw, just enjoying this moment. At the time, she was not even aware of what should even be said. She shrugged, deciding that was the best decision before she pulled herself up ontop of him. She actually enjoyed laying on top of him, but that was not the case this time.
She brushed a piece of hair away that had been bothering her, her midnight blue irises searching his before she lowered her head to his lips in a much needed kiss. Her hands wrapped around the back of his head, getting into it and clenching his hair in her fists.
With most everyone outside, inside seemed a bit too quiet. Not like a still quiet, but the scary quiet. A white noise everywhere that makes you doubt your own sense to tell whats real. Sarina started muttering to herself, telling herself to calm the hell down. That she was a vampire, and that's as much of a monster that will be in the house. Still, she kept jumping at every noise.
Sarina ran her fingers through her hair, glancing around the hallway. Where was she going?
"So I hear a lot of mental chatter but it's all kinds of fuzzy. What are we going over here for besides Rick and the cure for bites?"
Rick looked over the notes Gabby was taking on what he said. They were good notes, and the diagram was very well done.
"Yes, Just like that. Your very good at sketching."
He continued to explain various things to her.
"So there is no second in command, how odd... But then this pack does have some strange habits."
He started packing things up as his lesson came to a close.
"How long have you been with the pack?"
Victor gave into her kiss sinking back taking in her scent and her taste. He bit her lip playfully before he grabbed her hips flipping her underneath him so he could pin her arms over her head. He caught a look of almost desperation in her eyes and let her go rubbing the back of his neck.
His mind rushed back to the last time she came to him like this drunk and high as a kite. He took her home and it was that look of being scared and lonely that caused him to throw his arms around her and hold her and sing to her before faking he fell asleep refusing to do anything with her if she wasnt in 100% control of herself, he knew with that look he loved her and would be whatever she needed to be.
"Whats really ticking in that mind of yours Jenny?" He brushed her hair tenderly behind her ear as he started to rub the bridge of her nose with his finger. "As much as I so don't want to be talking right now." He leaned his face to hears and gave her a passionate kiss. "I know that look and well it worries me, you know I am not going to be ok with just being the one you come to for something like this then dont speak to me for a year and I have to chase you all the way over her to get you to speak to me." His voice cracked a bit at the end his brain kicking him as hard as it could for bringing it back up again. "I just you know I care about you more then any pup that is going to waltz into your world, but like I told you that summer I dont want just."He ran his fingers down her body..."I want all of you to be mine. " He smiled down at her before laying down next to her pulling her on top of him. He gave a light laugh before kissing her face all over. When she arched a brow at him he grinned a trouble maker smile and ran his tongue over her face before laying his head back and laughing.
"Yes, it was pretty stupid to do that. No I'm not going to yell at you, because frankly I've been yelling at every bloodsucker in this place for years about being more careful with their drinking habits for years and it makes no difference, and besides I'd prefer it was me getting this than anyone else, because I can tolerate this sort of thing. Believe me I have had so much worse....and had people I was in relationships with doing far more stupid things for that matter..." she stated, making her way over to her chair and dropping into it.
"So Ian had gone crazy about the whole thing. Why am I not surprised? To be honest I think I did more damage to one of the wolves than she did to me...but I suppose that's how Ian shows he cares about me...by arranging the brutal murder of people who've injured me in the past. It's something I guess..." she mused.
"I've been waiting for something like this for months." E replied as she skipped along, looking extremely pleased with herself. Going after some wolves was considerably more exciting than killing birds or rodents.
She didn't have any special grudge against the wolves of course..in fact she quite respected some Weres that she's met...but she was happy to take advantage of Ian's hatred for them in order to amuse herself with some sort of bloodbath.
Saffir meanwhile approached the wolf house and knocked on the door, setting her case down. This seemed to be the right place. It appeared isolated enough. Lycos tended to end up a little away from civilization...for somewhat obvious reasons. She'd come across some that lived right in among the human population...there were a few urban packs out there...but it made things harder.
"Hello?" she called.
"Well. The idea of taking out a bit of...insurance seems like the best choice in this scenario. Just to make sure we get exactly what we need. Plus, I owe it to Oren. We've been through some hard times and it's my way of showing her that I actually give a damn about something. Hayley," He snapped in her direction, drawing her out of her mind. "put up the forcefield on these two." He continued talking before she could respond. They were nearing the border and he was beginning to grow anxious just at the sight of it.
Smirking broadly he leaped easily over the running water and beckoned for E to catch up with him.
"Just make sure Jenson is still in the house if it's possible for you to pull her from the rest of the crowd." He called to Ari.
He already had caught the scent of a nearby wolf and sped off down the greenery a bit, finding her without a problem. And she looked as though she were about to pass how. Too perfect.
He quickly scooped up the large wolf in his arms, awakening her immediately, but with his grip already surrounding her, it was pointless to struggle. He had Lux right where he needed her.
He squeezed for a moment, hearing the crack of ribs breaking and he laughed alloud, almost manically at the sound.
"Good evening!" He joked, before throwing the wolf over his shoulder. She was hardly moving and it would be simple to get her to the dungeon and back in a couple of minutes.
"E, Ari. Go up to the door and demand to speak with Rick. You only let them visible when he is outside and in the open and you're sure that they are out of harms way. I won't be long." He adjusted the dog's weight and flew off, wings erupting from his back.
. . . . .
Hayley desperately wanted to protest about taking the field away from herself, but even she knew that Arileana was more important than her own life and she agreed, using her force to surround them and the two vanished immediately. Completely concealed from all sense. Even Jenson mind reading bull. She sighed and stepped towards the wolf home and knocked on the door quickly, disregarding the other mutt vacating the front porch with her. She glared at her out if the corner of her eye and shook her head, praying that someone came quickly to the door.
. . . . .
Jenson let him take charge and let her arms be thrown upward the be pinned back. She couldn't help but to smile as he kissed her and gave her all of his attention as he always had.
She heard him think back. Back before she had arranged the pack or even give herself morals.
She hated thinking about those times. It made her disgusted in herself and compare herself to her brother.
"My head?" She asked warily never truly sure if what she said was good for in the moment. She always felt out of place.
"You wouldn't understand my head. I hear everyone's truthful side, I see how they believe that they are and truly think that they are humble, cotrolled individuals." She shook her head. "No one is a saint and I see the real darkness in everyone's hearts. You don't even want to begin to hear my opinion on things." She groaned, complaining in her head that she had just said everything.
She sighed and shook her head, turning on her side and looking away from him.
"I want to be yours as well but I honestly don't even know if I am stable enough to support a relationship. Much less give the title to another of being Alpha..." At this point she was upsetting herself.
"Can we get some drink or something." She growled and pranced to the door, holding up a finger to say she would be back quickly and went to her room.
Her mind was solely on what she had just been talking about, disregarding the knock at the door, knowing someone else would get it.
She snatched the bottle of rum she had hidden away in the back of her closet and came back to the room with the cork already off and a few gulps down her system.
"Want some?" She asked, coughing lightly.
. . . . .
Ace crinkled his brows and came up behind her, placing his hands on her shoulders and lightly beginning to rub away knots and kinks in her muscles.
"You don't deserve any pain. You have been through a lot. And as for my cousin. Well, he's just psycho. But I know it is because he cares. He probably wouldn't even go to this extent for me. He'd mumble something about just getting up and brushing myself off and get back out there." He stopped touching her and pulled away, shrugging.
"I just hope they all come back okay...."
Lux's ear flicked to the left her groggy brain fuzzed awake with the sense of danger. Just has her head snapped up she sucked in a breath as Ian's arms wrapped around her body. She bit back a yelp as her ribs cracked under his arms. She mental beat herself "bloody brilliant Luxie." she thought to herself bitterly. She thrashed against his arms his grip only getting tighter on her. The pain of the rib snapping was enough to push her to sleep.
Victor kissed her hand as she went to get a drink. He laced his fingers together behind his head looking at the ceiling, when she walked back in his room he watched her take a few shots. "I wasn't intending to upset you. As for being titled your Alpha I dont care for that role, i would be that if you asked but that isnt my end goal, I just love you Cherie thats all." He heard Gabby calling for her. "but it seems your favorite is looking for you now and I should get that door thats two knocks in the last hour odd for us." He got out of bed and pulled a shirt on walking past Gabby tilting his head towards his room. He eyed the blue haired new comer in the living room. He made his way to the door opening it to find the redheaded vamp. He stepped on to the porch. "Did you get lost little red?" He said as he narrowed his eyes at her.
"No, no. It was not your fault, love. It was my own. You can have that, by the way." She added, picking herself off of the bed and going to the top of the stairs to look out towards Gabby and the newcomer. She had been expected and she smirked before going down the stairs two at a time.
She greeted their new guest with a warm smile.
It's a pleasure to meet you, Miss Saffir." She nodded her head and welcomed her deeper into the house.
"Could you get the door, hon?" She asked Victor, but already saw him starting for the large entry way.
"Please, do sit down. Are you planning to stay a while? Do forgive me, of course you are. There are plenty of empty bedrooms for you to choose from if you would like. Can I offer you a beverage?" She asked, standing and heading towards the kitchen, keeping an ear open for her drink of choice while filling herself up a glass of iced sweet tea.
. . . . .
Ian snorted as he emerged into the house, annoyed slightly that he was forced to be carrying the rank pest on his shoulders, but it was the only way he could be assured that things went as planned. He chained her up to the stone wall, -along with the few humans, some awake, others completely unconcious- and knocked on the door to the lab to indicate to the others of his arrival.
"You have a new guinea pig, Oreo." He chuckled and found himself on the werewolf territory much faster then the trip home.
He could already hear the slight commotion on the other side of the wall of trees that seperated him and the werewolf mansion, but he stayed in the back. Keeping himself hidden for a little extra surprise. What with the other vampires at their doorstep, it would be hard to decipher which scent was which, unless Jenson got anywhere near the door. He hoped she was holed up doing whatever responsible sisters did, but now all he could do was wait.
. . . . .
Hayley shook her head and attempted to peer over Victor's shoulder, inhaling slightly and she could smell Jenson. The odor fresh, so she must have been downstairs. She was curious as to why she wasn't the one opening the door and inspecting their every visitor, but she wasn't complaining.
"No. But I need to talk with....Rick? Immediately. Tell him Ari wants a word..." She wasn't sure if that was enough to gain the new wolf's trust, but it was really all she had and she hoped it wasn't going to get the door slammed in her face, because otherwise they would be forced to come inside without consent which would only confirm her image of the future.
She swallowed back the ball of bile that had collected, trying to calm her tensed nerves and she tried to look a bit impatient.
"This really is a matter of life and death...So I would........appreciate it if you didn't take your time." She wasn't usually nice to wolves, but the time seemed right to try and make the best of this so they wouldn't be forced to do the worst.
Saffir made her way inside, carrying her case along with her. She wasn't planning to let it out of her sight, not when the place was crawling with leeches. She'd pretty sure there'd been at least one of them right outside, though perhaps her nose was playing tricks on her.
"Nice to meet you...Jenson, right?" she asked, setting the case down at her feet.
"If you've got some soda or something that'd be great. I've been travelling most of the day. Pretty out of the way up here, isn't it? Anyway, I'm getting off track. Understand you got a big leech infestation round here....if you get my drift. Think I might be able to help you out there. It's a skill of mine." she explained, smiling in a cryptic fashion and tugging on her tooth bracelet.
"I can handle it. Believe me there's been so much worse." Oren replied, tilting her head back to get a look at Ace.
"It just seems odd...Ian doing all this...seeing as I can still remember when we wanted to kill each other..."
She paused as she heard Ian returning, and yelling that he'd brought something back...or rather someone.
The vampire rose to her feet and made her way through to one of the dungeon rooms, in time to catch sight of Lux there.
"Oh goody. A wolf....just what I always wanted." she remarked, having a cursory look to make sure the fleabag wasn't about to die on her. She wasn't about to let it go skipping back off to the woods...she didn't want to seem ungrateful....but she didn't want the get set upon by a pissed-off Jenson. After Jenson had pretty much saved her and Ace's asses by calling the rest of the pack off.
"Rick. I know you are in there and I need to talk to you."
She waited arms crossed as she tapped her foot impatiently for the man to produce himself.
Rick heard a familiar voice and walked outside to see what was going on.
"Leana? What do you need? Did something happen? That Ian fellow hurt you?"
He walked to her to inspect her looking her up from head to toe. She seemed to be alright, better than alright actually she was healing nicely.
Ari smiled and gave Rick a hug.
"Aren't you just the concerned papa bear. I am fine and Ian has never hurt me. Something did happen however, Oren got bit by a wolf and she is showing signs of that nasty infection that comes with it. We really need you to treat her if it wouldn't be too much trouble."
Rick sighed with relief when she said she was fine and wrapped his arms around her hugging her carefully. He listened to her and nodded along, not many if any people had a cure for the poison in a wolf bite. It acted like an infection spreading from point of origin all the way to the core organs and then well, then it was too late.
"Alright. I'll take a look at her and see if there is anything I can do. But, there is one thing, the wolf that bit her I don't want harmed. I worked very hard to save her life and she barely made it after the wounds this Oren person inflicted. Since I saved her and then will turn around and save Oren I think that makes the both of them even. You get me Ian's word on that and I would be happy to help out and teach Oren the formula so you all never run into this issue again. Sounds like a nice agreement if you ask me."
Ari smiled pulling the information out of Rick's head anyway. She didn't know what the chemical equations meant but Oren would for sure. If Ian disagreed she would have to turn the formula over anyway. But she really did want Ian to be reasonable. This fight between him and Jenson couldn't go on forever without casualties starting to mount up. Speaking of casualties she was getting an insanely high reading from someone there and it screamed vampire killer. Something that made her mildly nervous.
"Rick, let's talk about this back at the house hmm?"
There is a vampire hunter here... Ari whispered into his mind.
Some strange girl showed up, I don't really think you all should be around here. She gives me the creeps. He responded mentally. You should tell the others to leave to I'll go with you.
Ari sighed and took Rick's arm. She decided to send a mental message to the clan of vampires just to give them a heads up over the new arrival.
Guys we have a full fledged vampire hunter on our hands and she is sitting inside. Rick wants to cooperate and will also teach Oren the formula if we leave that wolf that bit her alone. Don't know what we should do about that but I have the feeling sitting around here isn't such a good idea. This crazy bitch wears fangs like it is high priced jewelry. She mentally sent to the clan. She was lucky that with those patch things she could reach the whole clan even back at the house.
