Scarlett's heart stopped for a moment her eyes fixed on the stone in her hand. "This can't be real." she whispered thinking out loud. After a long moment she looked up to Desten. "Who are you?" she asked her eyes locked onto his. "How can you afford to carry something like this? I don't even know your name." Scarlett's mind was racing. Was she in front of royalty? Who was this man in front of her? Scarlett held open her hand. "I don't deserve this...I couldn't possibly take it." she said completely over whelmed.

"Like you said some people need money. Well some people are lucky enough not to."

Scarlett was at a loss for words her fingers slowly curled over the red gem. The sound of a door slowly opening filled the silence. Ruby came out into the hallway wearing her night gown her frizzy red hair draping down her sides. She was rubbing her eyes. "Moma? Why are you out here?" she asked in a groggy voice. Scarlett quickly stood "Ruby! Hun what are you doing up?" Scarlett walked over to Ruby kneeling down to her level. Ruby looked over her mom's shoulder at Desten her innocent blue eyes catching his. "Hi mister are you here to save my mommy?"

"Honey what do I need saving from?" Scarlett asked her daughter with concern.

"Mister Joe...I don't like it when he makes you cry." Ruby said innocently. Scarlett sighed she didn't want Desten to know that now only was her boss a thief but he was abusive.

Desten's eyes narrowed a little bit at the mention of a man hurting Scarlett. He had never liked the thought of a man ever harming a woman. The thought of it burned him up inside, but for the sake of the child and her mother he forced himself to calm down.

Desten took a deep breath and took a quick look at Scarlett then back at Ruby. "Don't worry little miss, I will see to it that your mother never has to deal with that horrible man ever again. I promise he will never be able to make your mother cry again and that you to will be safe from here on out ok?" He said with a warm smile.

Desten didn't exactly know why he was saying these things but he felt like it was the right thing to do. After all this woman has been nothing but kind to him and his cousin and he wouldn't just stand by and let things like this continue. He understood the philosophy his father taught him long ago. 'You can't save every one, but if you're going to try you better give it your all.' and for some unknown reason this little girl and the waitress were worth it to him.

Ruby smiled a smile so bright it would make anyone's day. She quickly ran around her mother and wrapped Desten in her arms in what was for her the biggest hug she'd ever given. "Oh thank you Mister!" she said kissing him on the cheek. Scarlett's face was filled with a mixture of shock and joy. She was happy Ruby wouldn't have to worry any more and that they could live a happy life together, shocked that a man she'd just met would give them such a thing, and say something so bold.

"Sir, what you've already done for us is enough. You don't have to do anything else." Scarlett insisted as she slowly walked over to Ruby and pulled her off of Desten's lap.

Ruby looked up at her mom with confusion and a little frustration. "Moma..." Ruby started to say but figured she better not. She turned back to Desten. Her eyes filled with hope and a dream of him saving the day and them no longer having to live here. "My name's Ruby. It's nice to meet you Mister. Thank you for saving my moma and I hope you enjoy your stay at Joe's." she said in a way only the most innocent could.

"Ruby, I'll be to bed in a minute okay." Scarlett lightly placed her hand on Ruby's back and lead her back to the room. "Good night Mister see you tomorrow." Ruby smiled one last time at Desten and then walked back into the room. A thump could be heard from the hallway were Ruby had jumped onto their bed with joy.

Scarlett chuckled softly to herself her daughters joy was her joy. "Thank you I can never repay you for the kindness you've already shown." Scarlett was about to turn and go to her room when she paused. "Sir? What is your name?" She asked.

Desten was caught a little off guard by the child's hug. He didn't really know how to react so he just sat there and smiled as she talked to he mom and him. When Ruby ran off as her mother had said Desten felt a little bit tug at his heart. Hearing the little one plop down on her bed caused a bit of another smile to tug at the edges of his mouth.

"Don't worry about it ok. I'm glad to help and it sounds like this man needs to learn how to respect women." he said trying to suppress a growl that was trying so desperately to escape to show just how much he didn't like the man. "Before I answer your question I want you to do something for me ok. tomorrow when you wake up I want you to take Ruby out and have the day off. But i want you to come back around noon so we can discuss things." he said with a more stern tone.

"If you can do that for me tomorrow, then and only then will i tell you my name." He said with a playful smile. He usually wouldn't even take the chance of telling someone what his name is. Last and all. He still didn't really like the idea of it, but for the sake of Scarlett and little Ruby there was something that he needed to take care of and he doesn't want her around to see what he was up to. 'Hopefully using Ruby as a great reason to get out for the day would work and the fact that money was not problem with that gem he gave her.' He thought to himself.

"Have a good night and don't worry. By tomorrow you and your daughter will be free of this money and owner issue." He said as he got up and headed back towards his room.

Scarlett looked at him confused and thought for a moment. "Joe's not going to be happy about me disappearing. Tomorrow is Tuesday Mr.Wallcroft will be in...but he shouldn't come in till afternoon." she thought out loud it was obvious she cared for her customers however drunk and rude they maybe. "I can't remember the last time I had a day off. Ruby would love that." she ran her thumb over the gem in her hand. "I guess now we can afford to take a day off." she smiled at him. "Thank you." her eyes smiled brightly at him before she turned to go to her room. "Good night." she whispered gently closing the door behind her.

The next day Scarlett woke Ruby early much earlier than she'd ever gotten up before. "Let's go shopping!" Scarlett said with excitement she was already dressed and ready to go. Scarlett wore her hair down. Something Ruby hadn't seen in a very long time. Ruby was taken back by her mother's excitement and shopping...Her mom wanted to spend money? Ruby smiled and crawled out of bed her mother rushing her to get ready.

"Hurry I want to get there right when all the booths open so we get first pick." Scarlett said almost jumping with excitement.

Ruby hurried to get dressed and Scarlett had picked out Ruby's nicest dress and quickly braided her fizzy red hair. "Beautiful!" Scarlett rejoiced and the two of them snuk out of the Pub trying not to wake their guests.

Ruby and Scarlett laughed, danced, played, and shopped for their needs and some of their wants. Scarlett and Ruby were having so much fun they almost forgot they had to go back to the pub. Ruby pouted when her mother remembered she had to go back to work. "Ruby, hun it'll be okay we'll be able to do this more often now." Scarlett reassured her daughter before they walked into the pub's doors all eyes on them.

"Ruby, go up stairs." Scarlett's smile had hidden it's self away and she could feel her heart racing she feared what Joe would say or do now that she was back.

Lucius, Desten and Joe were all sitting at a table in the back chatting.

Shortly after Scarlett left with Ruby Desten found his pouch that he carried with him that was full of precious stones. Only needing about half of what he had in order to accomplish what he wanted to do he stashed the rest of them in Lucius's bag. Desten walked down the stairs and waited at the table closest to the door.

Around 10 the owner came in threw the door expecting to find Scarlett hard at work getting ready for the day. What he found was a man sitting at a table facing him. "What the hell is going on here and where the hell is Scarlett?" the man asked with a face that was a cross of anger and confusion.

"Relax my dear sir." Desten said as he got up from the table and walked over to the owner. "I gave her the morning off."

"The morning off?" Joe said with a now much more stern face. "And who the hell do you think you are telling my employee that she can have time off. I need her happy ass here working so I can make some damn money and speaking of money how the hell can that wench afford to take time off? Last I checked she could barely afford to eat let alone go out." he said with a bit of a grin forming on his face.

"Scarlett," Desten emphasized, "has the money because I gave it to her. Because unlike greedy bar keepers I can spare a few coins for a mother and her wonderful daughter."

Joe raised his eyebrows at Desten's comment. "Greedy bar keeper am I? Well mister money bags I hope you can spare enough money to help support that wench and her child because after this nice little stunt she is no longer needed in my bar." Joe turned to leave but before he could even take a step Desten turned him around and picked him up. His fangs starting to show even in his human form.

"I wasn't done talking to you yet. I didn't have her leave for the morning just to get fired. I promised that sweet little girl that i would make there problems go away and I intend to do just that. Now we are going to go sit in that back corner and have a nice long talk. My cousin will be joining us to help make sure I don't tear you limb form limb but I can't promise he would be able to stop me if you keep acting so rude. Am I clear?" He said with a growl

Joe had turned white with fear. He could feel the color drain from his face as he stared into the eyes of what he could only assume was a span of the devil himself. "Am I clear?" Rang threw his head like a knife and he nodded, but he didn't know if it was more out of fear or understanding.

"Good," Desten said as he put the man down and held out an arm showing the way to which table he had chosen. He turned and looked over his shoulder to see his cousin getting up from sitting on the stairs just listening to them. 'I know you don't approve of the way I went about that or about the way I am using my money but a young woman and her daughter are counting on me.' He said threw thought as he went in front of Lucius to the table in the back.

Joe sat down still shaking and not letting his eyes leave Desten, fearing the man might just decide to run him threw instead of talk. "So my good sir, what is it that you would like to talk to me about?" He said in a rather calm voice even though his face was still a pale color from the encounter just moments ago.

"Joe I'm going to get right to it, I want to buy this place form you." Desten said with confidence.

Joe almost let out a laugh but for the fear of what might happen he held it in. With a deep breath he continued. "You can't be serious can you. This place has been my bar for 20 some odd years. I'm not going to just hand it over to some stranger even if you are not a human."

"I believe you would hand it over if I gave you something you wanted." Desten said as he reached down for the bag. He lifted it up and started to turn it over and empty it.

"What you could you possibly have that I would waaaaaaaa...." Joe started to say, but fell short as the gems came falling out of the bag. He reached down and grabbed a diamond the size of his fist. Who the hell was this man and how the hell did he get his hands on so many of these gems.

Desten pulled the diamond back and looked the man in the eye. "Now here is my deal. You give me the key and the deed to this bar, you walk out that door, and you never come back in here again. If you can do that all of these are yours as payment." Desten gathered all the gems and put them back in the bag. "So yes or no?"

Joe didn't like the idea of giving up the bar but he would be a full not to take this man up on the offer. With those gems he could build this damn bar 13 times over. "Sir you have yourself a deal."

After all the arrangements had been made and the trade had been made final It was about mid noon. Lucius was finishing up the little odds and ends to help make sure Joe couldn't go back on this and if someone came snooping it wouldn't look like more than a regular trade. Desten really wasn't good at the paper part like his cousin which is one of the main reasons he was glad to have him along. "Now that that is all taken care of you have a nice day Joe." Joe wasn't to happy to here those words. "Oh and Joe if I ever hear of you Ever harming a woman again, especially Scarlett, I will come and rip your still beating heart from your chest." Desten said with a smile.

As soon as Desten finished that statement Scarlett came threw the front door with little Ruby right behind her. Desten saw the worry go across he face and heard her tell Ruby to go upstairs. They all three got up form the table, Lucius leading Joe to the door and shaking in his hand that was now trembling violently, and Desten headed towards Scarlett. "Do you have a moment to talk?"

Scarlett watched as Joe left shaking Lucius's hand with a face that hadn't quiet regained it's color. Joe smiled a fake smile to Scarlett out of fear what the two creatures would do to him if he didn't. Scarlett looked over to Desten with confusion in her eyes and curiosity on her face. Ruby had been watching from the stairs as she always did and when Mister Joe left she hurried down to her mother's side with a skip in her step.

Lucius smiled down at Ruby. "Hi, Miss Ruby. My name is Lucius. Would you like to play a game of cards with me while my cousin and your mom talk?" Lucius asked Ruby looking up to Scarlett making sure it was okay with her first. Scarlett nodded and turned back to Desten. "I'd love to! What game?!" Ruby asked skipping over to the table in the far corner of the room. Lucius followed suit with a smile. "Well what games do you know?" Lucius asked as they finished making their way to the table.

Scarlett walked over to Desten at the other table. "What did you want to talk about?" She asked hesitantly she wasn't quiet certain she wanted to know what just happened. She took the seat that was closest to her, her eyes never leaving Desten as he walked around the table to sit across from her. Scarlett folded her hands on top of the table. She'd seen the closed sign still up and wondered what on Hypersaurs could be going on.

Desten watched as Scarlett to great care of the elderly man. He was happy to see that she indeed wanted to stay here. After Scarlett had helped the man she came back and sat once more in front of him. "Well I'm glad to see I chose the right person as my manager. Keep stuff like that up and who knows maybe someday you will be the owner." he mused with a big smile.

The smile was only short lived as he got up form the table. "For now that is all I can share, Lucius and I have a few other things that need to be dealt with to day but we will be back here later this evening ok?" he said as he started to walk towards the table where Lucius was getting schooled buy little Ruby on how to play cards.

"I'm sorry to take my cousin away form you Miss Ruby but we have some other things we have to do. I promise though that we will be back soon and you can continue with the lesson then." Desten said as he patted Ruby on the head lightly then looked at Lucius. 'We need to go look at the forest one more time. I want to get a better feel of what happened and see if we can find anything of use.' he communicated threw thought.

As they got up and headed towards the door Desten remembered that he had almost forgotten his promise. He quickly turned to Scarlett and shouted, "The name is Desten Darkwood by the way." With that Desten turned back towards the door and left.

Scarlett, returned the smile but it faded just as quickly when Desten stood. Scarlett was slightly annoyed at Desten's response. "For now that is all I can share, Lucius and I have a few other things that need to be dealt with to day but we will be back here later this evening okay?"

'I guess it'll have to be.' she thought to herself. Scarlett had so many questions and wanted to know how he could afford such things. Scarlett smiled at the sight of Ruby schooling Lucius at cards. Scarlett chuckled at Ruby's reaction.
Ruby pouted slightly and nodded to Desten. She looked up at him with the biggest puppy eyes. That's when Desten told her "I promise though that we will be back soon and you can continue with the lesson then." Ruby's face lit up at the mention of them coming back.

Scarlett quickly realized that Desten was about to leave with out telling her his name. She started to stand and open her mouth when he kept his promise. "The name is Desten Darkwood by the way." Scarlett nodded as Desten left along with his cousin. She walked over to Ruby. "What a nice man Mr.Desten is." Scarlett knelt down to Ruby's level.

Ruby quickly added "And Mr.Lucius!" she said with the brightest smile. Scarlett couldn't help but return the smile. Ruby hoped out of her seat. "I'm going to go unpack and practice playing cards so that when Mr.Lucius gets back we can play." Ruby announced with excitement.

"That sounds like a wonderful plan. I'm going to open up shop and get to work." Scarlett watched as her daughter skipped to the edge of the stairs. "Oh and Ruby!" Ruby stopped and turned towards her mother. "You're welcome downstairs now as long as you stay in your seat."

Ruby's face lit up so bright even Mr.Wallcroft chuckled and with that Ruby ran up stairs and tried on her new dresses and played in the warped mirror they had. Ruby, kept herself entertained.

Scarlett, walked to the door and flipped over the sign and lit the lamps out side. She glided back over to behind the bar where Mr.Wallcroft's food was just coming out. "Here you are Mr.Wallcroft. Enjoy your meal." she said with a glimmer about her. Mr.Wallcroft just smiled he'd been watching Miss Scarlett's troubles and had always admired her brightness to her customers even threw the darkness in her life.

Soon the pub was full of people like every night but tonight was a little different. The whole place was full of laughter even Ruby was sitting at the far corner of the bar giggling at the faces her mother made. The place was full of life and plenty of noise. When Mr.Wallcroft left Scarlett and Ruby said their goodbyes with their voices in sink. Everyone in the pub that heard got a laugh out of how perfect it was.

No one asked where Joe was they just figured he wanted a night off. That or nobody missed him. When Scarlett went to clean the bar where Mr.Wallcroft sat she almost fell over. Mr.Wallcroft had tipped three gold piece. Scarlett's eyes were wide and her face bright her eyes brimming with tears. When some other customer needed something. She snatched up the gold and placed them in her apron and moved on with her night.

Daniel's eyes were wide with fear as Desten held him off the ground. It took Daniel a moment to bring himself to answer. "A highly concentrated dose wolfs bane...all of Clark's men has one on them and the blades are made of sliver." Daniel pulled out his with a shaky hand to give to Desten. Desten set him down and took the blade from him. The blade was less than a quarter inch thick and almost four inches long with what looked like a syringe needle mounted on top. The needle was filled with a purple almost black liquid the needle was the length of the blade. The amount of wolfs bane in the needle was twice the amount needed to kill an Omega.

Lucius fell over on his right side with a thump he was slowly loosing consciousness. Clark's torso hanging on the wall in front of him Clark's blood running down the wall and across the floor towards Lucius. Lucius managed to roll over onto his back looking over to Desten and Daniel. His eyes were frosted over his body limp, he couldn't move to pull the blade out of his own chest. Lucius laid there his right hand on his chest his breathing heavy and his eyes going blind. Lucius slowly closed his eyes and lost consciousness.

Scarlett and Ruby were entertaining the last eight customers of the night. These men generally stayed till last call which didn't bother Scarlett. Scarlett sat down on one of the bar stools and sighed with relief. She'd been on her feet for the past ten hours. She desperately needed a bar tender she knew how to make all the drinks but making and delivering all the food was more than she could handle on her own. The eight men sat at the great round table in the back playing poker. Scarlett kept an eye on their drink levels and their food but until they needed something Scarlett would rest. Scarlett looked around the bar and the place was dirty. Scarlett sighed thinking to herself when and how she's going to clean this place.

Ruby skipped over to her mother with a half loaf of bread in her hand. She placed the loaf on the bar and climbed up into the chair beside her mother. She held out the loaf for Scarlett. Scarlett smiled at her daughter how kind hearted she was. Scarlett ripped off a substantial piece and began to eat something herself. "Mom, when is Mr.Desten and Mr.Lucius coming back?" She asked her eyes begging to hear the word soon. Scarlett patted Ruby's hand. "I don't know sweety I hope soon."

Desten took the dagger and then looked at the rest of the still unconscious Omegas on the ground. 'Why would they have all of these?' he thought to himself. He quickly came back to reality and moved over to Lucius who was now falling into unconsciousness himself. "Hang in there Lucius I'm going to get this damn blade out of you. Bear with me ok?" he said as he grabbed the blade still logged in his cousin. The silver wouldn't do much damage to him but it would stunt the regeneration process more then what the wolf's bane was all ready doing.

"Here we go." Desten said as he tore the dagger out. Lucius's eyes opened wide and he let out a slight grunt of pain as the blade was removed. Desten tossed the dagger to Daniel, "Hold on to that and to yours. I want to get those back to a friend of mine and let him look at them. I going to take Lucius out of here and I need you to fallow. You think you could do that?" He didn't really know Daniel but he didn't really have much of a choice but to trust the kid, not with the condition that Lucius was in and with nightfall shortly approaching.

Desten stood up with his cousin on his shoulder, he went and took his blade from the wall allowing Clark's mangled remains to fall to the ground with a wet thud as it landed in the pull of blood below. He put Venom back in it's sheith but before he could leave one of the other omegas rolled over and put his hand into his jacket to pull out his hidden dagger. Desten quickly ran over to the man and firmly stomped on the mans hand in his pocket forcing the dagger into the own mans body. "You should have stayed down." he said as he forced his foot further down causing the vile of wolf's bane to inject into the Omega. He let out a scream of pain as the toxic fluid rushed into his vanes, the burning sensation swept over his body as if he was being burned alive. All the scars from the past that had been healed by his regeneration resurfaced. His eyes turned dark and colorless as he died. Desten looked back at Daniel to make sure he had seen to let him know that the same fate if not worse would befall him if he tried to do anything as foolish.

"Lets go." Desten said as he turned and left out the door towards where Scarlett was. He needed to get Lucius there soon so he started to run faster than a normal human. It was almost dark so most of the people where home as to avoid the vampires that came out at night. Desten was back at the bar in a matter of min with Daniel close behind. He came in threw the doors and to his pleasure saw Scarlett at the bar. "I need help and I brought some help." he said in a slight gesture towards Daniel and as to try to keep the alarm down about Lucius. There where still people in the bar he noticed. Desten took Lucius upstairs and put him on his bed.

Daniel did as Desten ordered not a question asked. He was shocked by the blood before him and the anger hidden inside Desten. Daniel knew the best thing for him to do was to follow Desten with out question. Questions could come later. A chill ran up Daniel's spin as he heard the Omega scream out in pain and he watched him die. Daniel shook off the chill when Desten started to head out the door without him. Desten lead them threw the dark ally ways faster than any human could possibly move. Daniel wondered if it would bring to much attention to them. Even more than Lucius was already bringing. Desten lead Daniel to a bar in Imre called Joe's pub. When they entered it seemed Desten knew the waitress and apparently had volunteered him to help. Daniel just followed Desten up the stairs.

When the door opened all the eyes turned to see Desten, Lucius, and Daniel a gasp came from Scarlett and Ruby started to cry. "What's wrong with Mr. Lucius!" Ruby cried walking towards Desten. Scarlett stopped Ruby and pulled her close holding her head to her chest her eyes fixed on Desten. Scarlett was speechless she opened her mouth to ask but let Desten take Lucius out of sight. Scarlett froze for a moment before calling the cook. "Geff! Geff, take Ruby and keep her busy I'll be upstairs if you need me." she handed Ruby over to Geff. "Moma" Ruby cried as Geff took her to the back of the kitchen.

The customers were staring at Scarlett and the stairs wondering who the fuck was passed out and what was going on. "What are you all staring at?" Scarlett snapped all the men went back to their game of poker some looking out the corner of their eye at her.

Scarlett ran up the stairs and went to her room she pulled out a water bowl, her sewing kit, and grabbed the clean sheet off her bed. She ran into Lucius's room and set everything down on his desk. "I'll be right back!" she ran out of the room down the stairs behind the bar and grabbed a clear liquor with at least 70 percent alcohol content. She didn't stop long enough to even think about the price of the bottle in her hand. She ran up the stairs back to Lucius's room.

Lucius laid on his bed drifting in and out. His shirt ripped open in order to revile the wound. The wound was a dark almost black purple around the edges it stretched out in all directions. Scarlett gasped as her eye landed on Lucius's chest. Her hand over her lips "What happened?" she whispered knelling down beside the bed to get closer. Daniel didn't say anything he just stood in the corner out of the way.

Scarlett snapped out of her daze, she grabbed the white sheet and handed it to Desten. "Cut it into strips." she ordered standing going to her sewing kit opening it and pulling out a needle and some thicker thread. She frantically looked around the room for a small cup. Lucius had one sitting on his desk with water in it. She splashed the water out the window and poured the liquor in the glass. She loaded the needle with her thread and pulled out more than enough to seal his wound. She cut the thread and soaked the needle and thread in the glass of liquor. She then went over to the water bowl and washed her hands as cleanly as she could. "You!" she said pointing to Daniel. "Go change this water and have Geff give you a clean rag and make sure it's clean!" she ordered handing him the bowl.

"Was he poisoned?" she asked Desten with a stern look upon her face. "It's wolfs bane." Desten replied with not an ounce of emotion in his voice. "Why would someone use wolfs bane as a poison there are so many others to choose from." Scarlett said her eyes darting back and forth in her head trying to think of how to save him. "Coal wont work...it has to be ingested." she thought out loud. Just then Daniel came back to the room with everything she'd asked.

"Do you know what nightshade looks like? Or Jimson weed? Do we even have any mandrake around these parts?" she asked Daniel. Daniel wasn't used to being put on the spot like that. "I think I could find some but isn't nightshade poisonous too?" he asked. "Yes, but it also has atropine in it and that is the only thing I can think of that might even help Sir Lucius." she announced in one single breath. "Now go!" she ordered. Daniel rushed out the door to find the plants she'd mentioned or at lease one of them.

Scarlett did her best to clean Lucius's wound him grunting in pain with the alcohol seeping into his flesh when he was awake that is. In one of the lapses when Lucius was out Scarlett looked over her shoulder to Desten. "If he was poisoned with wolfs bane..." she paused wondering if she should tell him. "If he was poisoned with enough wolfs bane" she rephrased "He could die in the next six hours or the next two. We should be safe if he makes it past the sixth hour." Scarlett looked at Desten waiting to see how he'd react.

Scarlett listened with fascination at Desten's description of things. It wasn't like what he was saying was terribly exciting it was just new to her. Scarlett still had questions but decided to keep them to herself. "We should go check on Lucius." Scarlett added trying not to get lost in her thoughts. Desten transformed back into his human form. The two of them returned to Lucius's room. Daniel was sitting at the desk trying to entertain himself. Lucius was awake and looked up when Desten walked into the room.

Desten's shirt had been torn to shreds when he transformed and his jeans were ripped right above the knee. Lucius slowly sat up his eyes filled with frustration. "You showed her!" Lucius's tone was harsh he tensed up. "Desten! How could you..." Lucius couldn't yell at Desten right now. Lucius pulled the trash can to his face and threw up what little was left in his stomach. Once he was done he glared at Desten. "Why would you do that?" Lucius continued. It was obvious he was worried about how Scarlett had handled the news.

Scarlett walked over to his bed side and sat down beside him. "It's okay. You can yell at your cousin tomorrow." Scarlett kissed his forehead to check if he had a fever. Lucius was shocked that not only was she okay with them being Lycans but she kissed him. "This isn't over." he muttered his voice was raspy. Scarlett faced Daniel "I can bring a blanket and a pillow but that's about all I can do."

Daniel nodded "Thank you miss." he replied. Scarlett turned to Lucius. "Now you get some sleep you're going to need it if you're going to yell at the Alpha." she joked. Lucius glared over Scarlett's shoulder at Desten for not only telling them what they were but who they were. Scarlett walked out of the room and brought back the pillow and blanket for Daniel. She left once more to tend to the few customers she had left and put Ruby to bed.

It was late in the night. Ruby was fast asleep in Scarlett's bed, Lucius and Daniel were sleeping in their room. Scarlett was still down stairs cleaning the bar and all the tables. She was exhausted from such a long day. She still needed to sweep, mop, and polish the bar. Scarlett sighed and brushed the hair from her face. Looking up at the pub and everything else that needed to be done. There was so much she needed to do but she just didn't have the energy to do it all.

All of her thoughts from before vanished as she felt him close. Scarlett's breath brushed up against his neck letting out soft moans as she felt him press against her. Scarlett had not had the touch of a man like this sense Ruby's father. Her body craved the touch of a man the feeling of their bodies entwining. All thoughts left her mind except one. Scarlett wrapped her arms around his neck and her legs around his waist pulling herself closer to him. His sudden approach made her hot with lust her body demanding his touch.

Scarlett pushed Desten back just enough to place her feet on the ground. She then proceeded to remove her clothing. Her pale slender hands gliding across her body slowly unbuttoning her clothes. Her skirt fell to the floor around her feet and she slid off her shirt her red hair covering her bare breast. She stood in front of him in all her glory her pale skin glowing in the darkness her eyes reflecting the candle light. The flames reflecting the way she felt, the burning lust that dueled inside her.

She watched as Desten's red eyes marveled at her beauty his hands tracing her every curve. Scarlett guided her hands to the hem of his shirt pulling it over his broad shoulders. She could see the flame of lust in his eyes. She gently brushed the side of his cheek with her graceful hand and stepped closer to him. The two of them burst into flames against the wall of the pub. Their desires taking over thought. The two of them danced in the burning heat of the fire until the fire was extinguished.

Scarlett went to gathered her things when her legs gave out. She collapsed to the floor giggling to herself at her predicament. Desten came over and lifted her up in his arms carrying her up the stairs. She smiled up at him with a smile filled with more than just satisfaction. Desten placed Scarlett on her bed careful not to wake the sleeping Ruby. Scarlett pulled a loose shirt over herself and laid down to rest. Scarlett's eyes were bright with pleasure and satisfaction that can only come from being deprived of something for so long. Desten left her to slowly drift into a deep sleep.

Scarlett awoke the next morning sore all over. She chuckled to herself about her idiocy. Spending a night with the Alpha on a full moon no less. She knew today was not going to be easy but to her it was worth it. Scarlett slowly made her way out of her room to find Daniel still sleeping. She scowled down at him and nudged him awake with her foot. "Get up!" she demanded. "We have a full day today. I'll make the drinks today and tonight I'll teach you but for now make sure customers have their food and drink. Oh and I didn't get to finish mopping last night." Scarlett's tone was sweet not demanding or harsh but soft and tender. "I'm sorry you have to do all the work on your first day. I over worked myself doing everything alone yesterday."

Daniel and Scarlett managed to get the pub ready for customers and the kitchen prepped before noon. People soon piled in Scarlett trying her best to keep the pain from her face as she maneuvered around behind the bar. Daniel did what he could and stumbled a few times but every one was kind and understanding.

Scarlett was dressed in a deep blue cinch skirt with a black half corset string up with ribbon the same color as her skirt her blouse was a Lenora blouse in pure white. The buttons were made of pebbles wrapped in the white fabric of her blouse. Her collar was unbuttoned just one button above her breasts. Scarlett felt and looked beautiful in her new clothes. Ruby came down the stairs also dressed in a new dress. It had long sleeves that hung close to her slender arms, it hugged her to her hips then let loose into a ruffle skirt, around her neck was a rounded collar and a shining silver necklace with nothing but a simple horse shoe charm on it. The dress was of a Pansy pink with yellow buttons down the back. Ruby skipped across the floors pub enjoying the freedom to be down stairs.

"Ruby! Find a seat and sit still." Scarlett said with the voice only a mother can make. Ruby paused mid step and looked around. There was no one to talk to or play cards with. She huffed and unwillingly made her way to the bar stool all the way at the end away from every one.

Scarlett smiled softly at her daughter knowing she was bored but couldn't find the time to entertain her. Scarlett tended to the mens drinks with such a fluid motion many of them hadn't even had the chance to order their food.

Daniel did what he could stumbling over things and having a difficult time balancing the tray of drinks and food. Ruby giggled at Daniel's situation "Moma?" Ruby asked trying to get her mother's attention. Scarlett couldn't look away from her customers but was always listening to Ruby. "Moma, may I help Mr. Daniel?" Ruby asked looking over her shoulder seeing Daniel almost spill a cup of meed on a young fellow.

Scarlett sighed and looked over to Daniel. "Yes but let him carry the heavy things." Scarlett whisked around and pulled out a tray Ruby's size. "Here. Now take his mug to Mr. Sleighed over in that corner and ask what he wants to eat." Scarlett pointed to a man sitting at a table alone. Ruby nodded and skipped off to do her new task.

Ruby soon returned with a food order for Mr. Sleighed and passed it up to the head cook who smiled down at her. "Turning into your Moma I see." he teased her. Ruby stuck her tongue out at him and skipped up to Daniel's side who was at the bar gathering drinks on his try. "Mr.Daniel?" Ruby said quietly. Daniel didn't hear her he was so focused on what drink went to who. "Mr. Daniel." Ruby said once more this time a little louder.

Daniel looked down to her "What can I do for you Miss Ruby?" he asked slightly annoyed.

"The question is what can I do to help you!" Ruby asked with a bright smile. Daniel couldn't help but feel guilty about being annoyed before.

"Well Miss Ruby could you take this..." he pulled a meal from the open window leading to the kitchen. "To that red haired man over there?" Daniel knelt down to her level and pointed. Ruby nodded and held out her tray. Daniel loaded her up with the food and off she went. This pattern continued Ruby got the food from the cook and Daniel got the drinks from Scarlett. Things started to improve. Some men were irritated with the wait but the moment Ruby showed up to the table they shut their mouths and let the little lady take care of them.

"Well I'm glad Daniel is working out pretty well." Desten said as he came to the bottom of the stairs to the bar. He walked up behind the counter and gave Scarlett a quick but very warming hug as to not get in the women's way. He noticed that even though she was still moving around swiftly she seemed to have a bit of a hard time standing for to long. Desten had a slight laugh that he stifled quickly at the fond memory of the night before and how he figured he may have taken things a bit to far. He couldn't help himself though seeing as he himself hadn't been with a woman in quite some time and something about Scarlett drove him wild. He could still picture the candle light dancing over Scarlett's beautiful pale skin. The thought of touching her like that made the Male start to get ramped up. Desten quickly calmed himself realizing the problem that could be caused if he let his thoughts dwell to much longer on the night before.

"That dress looks very becoming on you." he said noticing how the dress seemed to bring the true beauty of her eyes to life. "So I think we need to find a new name for this bar seeing as it isn't owed by Joe anymore." he said as he looked around at all the people having a marry time in the pub. He watched as Ruby went form one table to the next with great ease while Daniel was having trouble carrying just a few items to different tables. Desten hoped Daniel would learn to keep pace and eventually be a great help to Scarlett, seeing how the old owner was the bartender, so buying this place form him left Scarlett short handed. Though with little Ruby going the way she was she would be a fine waitress in no time flat, he thought to himself.

Scarlett glanced out the corner of her eye as Desten approached the bar small strands of her bright red hair fell into her face. She'd pulled most of her hair haphazardly up into a tortoise shell alligator clip. One of the few items of worth Scarlett had before Desten. The hair clip held many a memories. It had been passed down from generation to generation in her family.

Scarlett smiled at Desten "Good afternoon, and thank you." she replied to his complement. "So I think we need to find a new name for this bar seeing as it isn't owed by Joe anymore." Scarlett pondered for a moment. "I've been thinking on that too. I keep coming back to something with Ruby and the Moon but I haven't decided." Scarlett made drinks as she spoke not missing a beat. She stopped for a split second to pull a stool out to sit on. She sat there making drinks and sliding them down to there rightful owners.

Scarlett jumped out of her seat turning to face Desten. "I got it! The Ruby in the moon." she stated pointing to his necklace. "After the owner and the barkeeps daughter!" she started to hum to herself as she finished the last two drinks. "That should do it for now." she said to herself as she dried her hands off on a towel. "If you boys need anything else just holler." she told the men at the bar as she walked around to Desten.

"So what do you think?" she asked clearly proud of herself. Any man who paid enough attention could see the slight discomfort in Scarlett stride but being the wiser men they pretended to be kept it between themselves. Suddenly a wild group of young men stammered in. Scarlett turned with grace in her steps as she greeted them with welcomes. "You boys seem to have had quiet a night so far!" she had to raise her voice for them to stop their blabbering to one another.

"And it's not over yet!" one of them muttered out in a drunken slur as he threw one of his arms around the smallest of his friends. "Ain't that right Sammy?" he said right into the young mans ear. The smaller man seemed to be the only one not enjoying himself. The other two behind them grew impatient. "Stop your gibber gabber and lets eat!" one demanded as he pushed his way threw Sammy and the taller drunk.

Scarlett smiled at them with a true smile not some half fake smile most people give to drunks. "Right this way gentlemen." She lead them to a round table big enough for the four of them. "It's seems we've already had a few drinks so what else could I get ya?" she asked placing her hands on her hips.

Seeing the look of pain go across Scarlett's face as her eyes went to the direction that Ruby was in, Desten had herd enough of this blabbering idiot. He quickly clamped off the rage he could feel growing inside him as to not do anything rash. Desten strode over to the table with the gentle men and stopped just short of the table. He glared down on the one now known as Joseph. The man was drunk and obviously beyond the point of caring what came out of his mouth but Desten would rather die than see that look of pain go across Scarlett's beautiful face again.

"Now I'm all up for a good drink my good man but another unwanted outburst like that and I'm afraid I will have to ask you and your friends to leave. This is a good place to have fun and get some good food and drink but I will not tolerate ill talk of Ms. Scarlett or any of the other workers for that matter." He said in a firm tone not leaving the man's gaze.

Scarlett had to take a seat, she pulled away from Desten and sat on her bed staring at the floor. "You killed Joseph." she whispered. This was more than Scarlett had ever dealt with before. She loved Desten she could feel it she liked him he sparked a flame inside her. Last night was the best night of her life so far but now...now he was more than a beautiful creature he was a murderer. Scarlett held her head in confusion. She looked up at him not wanting to believe her ears. "Desten." she sighed "Desten, thank you for defending my honor and protecting Ruby." She paused at a loss for words. "I don't know what to do." she sadly admitted.

Scarlett stood and grabbed hold of his hands. "I don't know what to say or do...All I know is that you did this for our safety and honor. But..." she stopped knowing the words she was about to say would only hurt him and solve nothing. Scarlett looked into his eyes "Tell me I have nothing to fear. Tell me that we can lay our heads down at night and that the howls of wolves will not strike fear in our hearts but the warmth of pride... Tell me something good." Scarlett simply gazed up at him her eyes begging for an answer some comforting words from the only man she trusted.

Lucius had made his way down the hall stopping at Scarlett's room hearing Scarlett and Desten's voice. He didn't hear much of their conversation except for the last bit. "Tell me I have nothing to fear. Tell me that we can lay our heads down at night and that the howls of wolves will not strike fear in our hearts but the warmth of pride... Tell me something good." Lucius held his chest pain searing across his chest. He leaned silently against the wall waiting for the pain to fade and unknowingly to Desten and Scarlett he was overhearing them. Lucius tried not to hear them but the walls were so thin it was almost as if he was in the room with them.

Desten knelt down in front of Scarlett so he could meet her gaze. He put a hand on her cheek, "You will never hear another howl and have to be afraid." Desten pulled his necklace off from around his neck and placed it around Scarlett's. He moved closer and place his forehead to her's. "As long as this stays on around your neck, you have the protection of the Alpha of the lycans. Even the strongest of the outcasts wont dare touch you. I shall get one for Ruby as well so no creature would dare harm a hair on her head." Desten knew that only the lycan's knew what the symbol meant, to vampires it only seemed like a necklace, even the high ranking vamps didn't know what it was, but a lycan of even the lowest rank knew it was the alpha family symbol.

"The gem serves as two things, a symbol of the Alpha family and a protection from vampires. The gem is whats known as a blood ruby. It is unique in that it can keep a vampire from wanting to bite you. With this I promise you will be safe." It wouldn't protect them form physical attacks but it would keep them safer. Even if he wasn't there. It wasn't much but it was the best he could do for the moment. Desten didn't want to have to kill anyone else unless absolutely necessary. He may be a lycan but he wasn't a monster and he wanted to prove that.

Desten rose from where he stood and moved to the door opening it to Lucius. 'You know I don't like ease droppers,' he said threw thought.
