Elwin had been walking a little ways when he heard a noise. He froze before looking around for what made it. Taking a couple of steps towards the sound he heard rustling then a child's cry. Elwin hurried and bushed them aside to find a child sitting in a bear onsie and crying. He was shocked to see a kid out here so late.

"It's okay little fella, I won't hurt you. Where is your momma?" He asked softly, but the child just cried more. Elwin was freaking out, he picked up the kid and walked around the area to try and see if there was anyone looking for a child or a camp somewhere, but there was nothing. The kid had clung to him like he was his own father. Elwin patted his back softly, calming him down.

He didn't know what to do, so he headed back to the house. Lily and Atlas were still there, "I found something in the woods." He smiled nervously.

Roshia cried hard, she cried for the baby. She cried for if it wasn't for him or Nas. She cried because Daryl stirred somethin in her and she knew if she didn't get rid of it she it only hurt everyone. It seemed like forever when she finally stopped crying.
She gently pushed away from him. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to... cry so much and all over your invisible shirt. That was rude of me." She said softly. Her eyes were read and her cheeks were flushed. "I love you so much it hurts." She whispered.

Atlas

Atlas and Lily had apparently finished talking and Atlas went back to reading while Lily was sipping away at her tea when Elwin walked in with an infant in bear pajamas. "You uh...You found a baby...? Where are its parents!?" Atlas said standing up and walking over to Elwin. "Well at least he...He? She? I dunno what it is. But they dont look harmed at least. Where did you find the little one?" He asked looking at the baby.


Lily

Lily sprung up and ran over when Elwin came in with the baby. "Oh poor thing...Do you think someone dumped him off in the woods?" She asked looking worried. "What should we do? Its too late now to take him to the authorities tonight. Do you think hes hungry? He looks about a year old possibly...We could offer some oatmeal if he gets hungry" She said, reaching out and holding his tiny hand.

Elwin frowned, "He was crying in a bush, that is how I found him. I looked all over from the direction he seemed to came from. There is no one. No camps... I will keep him here... if his parents didn't dump him then they will come here asking. And if they don't come I will keep him. Sorry Atlas... but the bugger stole my heart. He hasn't really talked much, so I will call him Forrest."

Forrest looked up and smiled at Lily before nuzzling his face into Elwin's shoulder before yawning. "I'm going to put him in my bed." He walked passed them and into his room where he tucked Forrest in. He began to cry, but Elwin laid next to him and sung a song his mom used to sing to him and Roshia. It didn't take long for him to fall asleep and Elwin got up, slowly closing the door, and looking up at the worried two.

"He's asleep, poor babe."

Atlas waited for Elwin to come back out while Lily sifted through the baby clothes to see if he had made anything big enough for little baby forest. When Elwin came back Atlas breathed a sigh of relief. "why did you say sorry? I dont mind kids ya know. We'll have to go get supplies for him in the morning if his parents dont show. He cant sleep on your bed for too long. I'll get some things for my place for him too in case you ever need a break from him." He said making a checklist of things in his head that theyd need to get. Lily laughed at him "Look at you bein all grown up and dad like. My wittle Atlas is so big now" She said wiping an imaginary tear from her eye and she stared at the two.

Elwin opened the door when he heard Atlas' voice, though he couldn't hear what was being said. "Oh, Atlas I am so... hello." He said when he noticed the small girl next to him. Forrest turned his head and started to bounce and repeat "mama" over and over till Elwin put him down. He waddled his way over to Ivie who had already bent down to pick him up. "My sweet baby boy. Next time I am putting you in the wrap. No more free time for you, mister." She tickled him and he laughed, hugging onto her.

She looked up at him, "Thank you so much for looking after him. I cannot thank you enough. Also.. your hair... I envy you a thousand times over." She said softly. She looked up at Atlas before drifting her eyes back down to the baby who she was bouncing on her hip.

"You are very welcome. He was a delight to have." He said softly, sad that he had to give him back to his mother. "If you don't mind... can you tell me his name?"

She looked up at him, "His name is Forrest and I am Ivie." She said smiling and he started laughing.

"That is perfect! I couldn't get a name out of him so I called him that too. Was it because of his eye?" He asked and she laughed nodding her head.

"They were a dark forest green when he was born that the name just came to me." She laughed.

Atlas sighed, figuring there was no possible way he was going to get Elwin to turn back around. Atlas felt like no matter what he did, something pissed Elwin off, sending him running off somewhere. Atlas just wanted to enjoy the short time he had with his son though so he pushed the thoughts out of his mind and instead played with Forrest until he seemed to get sleepy, then set him back in Elwins bed and read to him until he fell asleep. Atlas sat next to him as he slept, looking down at him every once in a while as he read silently.

Elwin couldn't believe how fast small people walked. He couldn't find her. He would just have to talk to her when she came back to pick up Forrest. He walked into his home and didn't see the two. Then he peeked in his room. Atlas was silently reading and Forrest was sleeping. He closed the door softly and walked to the couch, sewing some outfit. He didn't know what it was, he just needed to keep himself busy.

Atlas had been sitting with Forrest for a while when Elwin came back and peeked into the room. Atlas pretended he didnt notice and instead put his book down and watched Forrest sleep for a while. He wondered if he was actually fit to be a father, no one else seemed to think he was anyways. But he didnt want his son to grow up without a father either. Atlas sighed, wondering what he should do.

Forrest woke up and looked over to the man next to him. He rolled over towards the end of the bed and slid off the bed before wobbling to the door and banging on it. Bahhhhhhh ma bah haaa! He laughed and looked back at the man on the bed. It was clear he wanted out of the prison of a room.

After the hours long ride back to the city Erorn got out of the carriage. "Just stay here, I'll be back soon." He told the driver.

He walked to the village and then to the house where he found Marcus before. He knocked on the door, suddenly glad he was wearing his light armor, which was as conspicuous.

Atlas watched Forrest slide off the bed, nearly having a heart attack when he did, then he laughed and picked him up, opening the door after hearing Elwin speak. Atlas wasnt exactly happy, Elwin made it seem like he was done with Marcus, only to run back to him again and again. The cycle would just keep repeating if Elwin didnt quit running back to Marcus. All he said was a simple "Ok". Before shrugging and walking to the kitchen with Forrest. He knew damn well he needed to talk to Ivie and apologize to her, it didnt help that Elwin was only taking her feelings seriously though. But Atlas should have expected that. "So, Forrest, what do you wanna do? You hungry? We can play outside too if you want, but no rnning off on me okay? Your mom would kill me." He said, speaking softly to Forrest once they were in the kitchen.

Elwin watched as Atlas walked with his son passed him. Not a care in the world. He shook his head and walked out. He was just so damn done with all these surprised with Atlas and it didn't help to know he was just like Marcus. He closed the door behind him and walked with Erorn to the carriage getting in and taking a deep breath. "I am only going to put a close to this. Is he treating you well?" He asked.

Forrest looked around the room, staring at Elwin and started crying when he left. Maaa ma ma maaa! He cried louder, wiggling to get out of his arms.

Atlas watched as Elwin walked in and scurried of to his room and had a bad feeling. When Roshia came flying past them he knew something awful had happened. He looked over at Ivie. "Yo should probably head home with Forrest, where did you want to meet up when I need to pick Forrest up before you work?" He asked quietly. When he got an answer he nodded and opened up the front door. "Ok, I'll see you then. Good night." He said and waved to Forrest who seemed sleepy.

Atlas closed the door and walked over to Roshia. He stood there for a moment wondering what the hell was going on when it hit him. "Elwin..What..What did Marcus do?" He yelled through the door. He knew it had to something Marcus did and that really pissed Atlas off.

Ivie had woken up and got her and Forrest dressed. He wanted to be in a bunny onesie"What is with you and your animal outfits?" She tickled him and fed him before walking out the door to meet Atlas in their spot.

Atlas never really got to sleep and so he went into work much earlier than usual to get things done. He loaded up on caffeine to improve the look of tired on his face before going to meet Ivie to pick Forrest up. He got there a couple of minutes ahead of time just to make sure he wasnt a second late. When he saw Ivie walk up he walked to her. "Good morning." He said with a wave while walking over. "Where are you getting these adorable onesies?" He said with a smile.

Ivie could tell Atlas was tired when they walked up to each other. She looked down at Forrest who was pulling at the ear of his onesie "I make the mistake of walking by stores who have them. He screams for them. I cave in all the time." She smiled and looked up at him. "Did something happen between you and Elwin?"

Atlas laughed. "Well at least he looks super adorable in them, so its worth it huh?" He said watchig forrest tug at the Bunny ear. "Oh we broke up. I'm not trying to dwell on it too much though. Not gonna let it dampen my day with Forrest any, did you want to meet here or somewhere else to pick him up later? I can always bring him to you, its not an issue." Atlas explained, he didnt want to get too far into how he was feeling, he was looking forward to seeing Forrest and didnt want Ivie to worry about anything.

Ivie held on to Forrest. "What? Why? Wasn't he just... Did YOU break up with him? I think I am going to take Forrest to his normal babysitter. Go talk to him, if you actually loved him at all. You can pick him up after you are done talking to him, okay? He is at the only house that is bright blue in town, by the entrance to town." She smiled softly and walked off.

Atlas ran up to Ivy and stopped her. "Theres no point. HE doesnt want to be with me. Says it doesnt feel right because you and I have a kid. And hes somehow got it in his head that you still love me or something. So we ended things. And he keeps running back to someone else after promising hes done with him. We wouldnt have worked out with him still in love with someone else." Atlas sighed. "Its as mutual as it can be, he suggested it, i agreed, and that was the end of it." He said softly. "So dont bother taking Forrest to the baby sitter, please. It might make you late to work at this point anyways. I'll be fine, i have a whole day planned out." Atlas did his best to smile at her and seem okay. He didnt want to talk to Elwin after seeing how easy it was for Elwin to want to let him go. He just wanted to spend the day with his son.

Ivie backed away from him, blushing. "H-He... look I do... I do.. still love you.. or loved the version of you when you weren't drunk, which I see in you now. It is funny that he thinks we should be together, but you love him. Atlas, he did the most selfless thing possible and gave someone he loves in order to make things right. Atlas Hensley, you are just as stupid as your were back then. You THINK and ASSUME. Look where it got us. I am not leaving my baby with you like this. I can see the damn good in Elwin. I trust him... don't worry about me. I have been at this single motherness for over a year. Now go." She walked off again, bouncing Forrest and cooing at him. His laugh could be heard in the distance.

Atlas hugged Elwin close for a few minutes not saying anything, just enjoying not fighting with him any more. He pulled away and kissed Elwins head, still holding one of his hands. "I love you... Lets go pick Forrest up from the sitter, he'd be happy to see you. And later maybe we can convince Roshia and Lily not to murder me when I eventually sleep again, yeah?" Atlas said with a nervous chuckle. He fully expected Lily to jump out of a bush and stab him or something. And Roshia was equally scary. He held Elwins had and walked with him to the sitters, picked up Forrest and paid the sitter before stopping by the cafe for much needed muffins and coffee.

Elwin smiled and walked with Atlas to get Forrest and then to the cafe. Forrest attacked the muffins. He giggled and played with his toys. Occasionally Elwin had to get up and pick up Forrest to bring him back over to them, then he actually got out of the door. When Elwin got to him, holding the laughing baby in his arms, Ivie was staring at him. She was taking care of patrons at her work. She gave him a small glare and he hurried back in. "I just saw Ivie... she might kill me for letting him escape." He decided to just hold him.

"Oh really? Its okay I wont let her I promise. If anything she'll kill me because you went to get him." Atlas said setting some tea in front of Elwin as he had just grabbed some coffee for himself. He took a so and frowned at the monstrosity he had made. "One should never drink eight shots of plain espresso in a cup..." He said with a chuckle, before downing the rest of the drink before picking up Forrest and showing him one of the kids picture books he had gotten for him, laughing as Forrest coo'd at the drawings of cute baby animals.

It had been about a week since Atlas and Elwin had their fight and Atlas found out he was a dad. He and Ivie were...Kind of getting a long...A little. And he and Elwin had things well on the mend. Atlas had kept up with his promises to keep Forrest during the day when Ivie was at work and had always been early to pick him up. This day he loaded up a basket with specially made baby oriented muffins for Forrest and quiche for he and Elwin as a snack/brunch. He picked up forrest after he left work and headed to Elwins house, he knocked softly before opening the door and walking in, closing the door behind him. He sat Forrest down and gave him a muffin. "Morning Elwin, Its just me and Forrest" He said as they waked in. Forrest squealed happily and munched away at his muffin as Atlas set the basket on the table.

Nasir and Marcus had left the kitchen and headed to their rooms to gather clothes and the stuff that would be needed for what was to come. Then they headed to get a carriage, which Marcus drove. He didn't want to have a servant be around and they were going to need the carriage to transport the guys.

On the way to Marcus' vacation home they talked about how they were going to go about things. They decided that they would have to stalk them for a bit and get each one alone before taking them. When they got to the house it was dark, but they lit candles and moved furniture around until it was late at night. A tarp was spread out with four chair sitting on top of it. Chains and ropes were next to each chair. On top of them, hanging, was a cloth to shove in their mouth if they got too loud.

Nasir was ready for this. His anger had been building up. Marcus was the calm one, he over checked everything and when all was done at the house they rested. The next day the began stalking their prey.


Harrison

First one on their list was Harrison, he worked at his own restaurant. Nasir and Marcus stayed around the place. Each would take breaks before coming back and letting the other one go. It wasn't till late at night that Harrison closed by himself. Nasir and Marcus moved down the alleyway to the back of the restaurant where Harrison was. Harrison was taken aback from Nasir's body guard stance and the prince being there. He didn't see Nasir's fist coming towards his face.

When he woke up he was tied and chained to a chair in a house he hadn't seen before. He tried to talk but a cloth was stuffed in his mouth. He looked around and saw the tall blond man and the prince staring down at him. The tall blond began to talk. He said he was here to get revenge for the girl he assaulted almost ten years ago. Harrison froze. So she had lived and talked to someone who actually would do something. His hand gripped the chair. He was a stupid kid back then. Harrison wished he never became friends with Vincent. He hadn't even talked to the group since that night.

They took out the cloth in his mouth, but he didn't scream. The blond guy got to his eye level and told him what he was going to do to him and they he is going to wish he hadn't done something so horrible. Harrison told him he already regretted doing it, that if he could go back and stop them he would. Harrison said he wasn't going to beg for his life either, he knew Karma would come and find him one day.

The tall blond man and the prince looked at each other and shook their head. They shoved the cloth back in his mouth and began to pull his nails out. The pain was shot through his body and he screamed into the cloth. He couldn't help but cry. Harrison was hoping they would just kill him off pretty fast. The prince had looked away and the blond man looked like he didn't want to be doing this, but it had to be done.

Harrison knew, he didn't expect what he had after that night to last. Every night he thought about what happened and how he waited for Karma to come, but she took her sweet time, just like the blond was doing to him. The prince finally came over and poured alcohol on his wounds. Harrison jumped and tried to get away from it, the pain seemed to maxify now that the alcohol was on. The prince wrapped his fingers delicately before making sure the chains and ropes were on tight enough.

They left him like that all night. Harrison drifted in and out of sleep. His body was starting to ache. He heard the footsteps of the two men. The prince took the cloth out of his mouth and gave him water before feeding him. He told him that he was sorry, but he couldn't allow people like him in his kingdom. Harrison gave a small and tired nod. He knew he couldn't stay. He already came to terms with what he done and how he was going to lose his life because of it. He took everything from that girl, left her for dead naked in a cave... what kind of human does that? No human would. He wasn't, he knew he was a monster.

When they were finished feeding him they placed the cloth back in his mouth, tighten his chains and ropes, before leaving him in the empty house.


James


They left the first guy in the house tied up and gagged before going to find James. He would be working at a school, so they had to be careful not to be seen by kids and their parents or the other faculty. They walked around town until the school let out and then followed James until they were in an empty street. Nasir and Marcus cornered him. It wasn't as easy to get him knocked out and in the carriage as it was with Harrison. He fought them and was a pretty good fighter, but Nasir was bigger and trained by his own father.

James woke up in a chair next to Harrison. He looked paler than normal and looked down at his hands. His fingers were wrapped and bloody. He felt sick. The blond guy looked down at him and told James why he was here. His body tensed. He didn't how he would know... unless the girl didn't die. His mind spun and he thought about his wife and child. He tried to talk, but the cloth was getting in his way. The prince was the one to take it out. He told them to not hurt his wife or child, that he would take all of it, to just leave them out of it. They were innocent.

The blond looked at the prince and they walked out of the room. Nasir couldn't kill him, he had a family... the prince nodded in agreement. They decided the ones who had families would be tortured and then brought back to the castle to rot in Marcus' dungeon. They walked back into the room and told him he would live, but he would still be tortured and placed in the dungeon when it was all over with. James thanked them, crying as he thought about his family being safe.

The blond and prince looked at each other and shook their head before ripping out his nails. He screamed into the cloth, his body shaking. He started to gag and the prince hurried to take the cloth out before he actually vomited. Harrison didn't make a sound. He just looked over at James and shook his head, like he was disappointed in his weakness. The blond and the prince cleaned up everything before going back to torturing him. He thought he was going to die from the pain. He sure felt like death was slipping his arms around him.

The prince poured alcohol on his fingers and James screamed again. The prince began wrapping up his fingers before going over to Harrison and and torturing him more. His screams terrified him, but he looked like he accepted it. James didn't know what Harrison did after that night besides move. He seen him around in his restaurant, but he refused to take his family there.

Maybe he accepted his fate. James couldn't do that, he had a family to think of. He could accept anything that happened to him. The image of the girl that night flashed across his mind and the look of fear and pain. James jaw clinched. He had a little girl of his own now and to think of men doing that angered him. He didn't deserve his family. Didn't deserve their love, but he was selfish and took it. Like he took what wasn't his all those years ago.

They cleaned Harrison up for the night and made sure they were both tightly bound and gagged before disappearing. He looked over to Harrison whose lip was busted and his face was bruised. Harrison looked at him and shook his head before he dropped his head. James drifted to sleep, but jolted up after what seemed like five minutes. It was like that all night till he heard the men come. They fed both of them and gave them something to drink before cleaning their wounds and bandaged them again. Both men checked their restraints before leaving them in the house.

Abram


Abram was an escort. It wouldn't be hard to get him in the carriage and to the house. They waited till night time to go to stop him before going to his apartment they pretended to hire him and got him into the carriage. The prince sat in the back with him. He had no idea the prince was into men, but Abram didn't mind. He liked men and women equally. His job was technically more than an escort, but he had to keep it hush so that he didn't get put in jail again.

Abram turned to the prince and slid hi hand on his knee and up. He could feel the prince tense up and before he could say anything, the prince had his hand on his neck and pinned. He told Abram not to put his disgusting and worthless hands on him again. Abram looked up at him with confusion before it turned to anger. He tried to get the prince off of him, but the prince was way too strong. It seemed like an hour had passed before the carriage stopped. When the blond man open the door what he saw confused him. He told the prince that they didn't take him so he could be play with him.

The prince threw Abram out and scuffed, saying a piece of trash like him couldn't ever hope to be with a prince. Abram scrambled up and was going to swing at the prince when the blond swung. It took one hit for him to pass out. When he woke he was tied and bound to a chair, a cloth on his lap. He looked around and saw his old buds from the island were there with him. It took a moment to realize that they were there because of that stupid girl.

He looked up at the two and growled. Abram asked if this was about the stupid girl and wonder why she hadn't died back then. The blond swung, this time punching his throat. Abram coughed and jerked in his chair. The prince looked up at the blond like he wasn't supposed to do that. When Abram came too he laughed. He told them that the girl had it coming. She practically wanted it after Harrison was done with her. This time the prince swung and kept swinging till the blond pinned him against the wall and told him to calm down.

Abram just laughed as his face throbbed. He didn't care about the girl and surely didn't regret it. He had fun that night. He loved the look in her eyes when she realized what was happening. The way she screamed... then he screamed. He felt the searing pain as go up his leg. He looked down and saw from the top of the knee and down was gone. The two guys also screamed against their cloths. Before he fainted he screamed again as he got stabbed in his abdomen repeatedly. It seemed to hit all of the spots that wouldn't kill him if they were tended to correctly.

The last thing her heard were footsteps going away and the sounds of his old friends screaming.

Virgil


This was the last one before going to get Vincent. They realized that this was going to be a little bit tougher to get him knocked out and in the carriage. They would be playing in his stomping grounds. It was late at night, they had stalked him for a few days and realized that he worked along. Marcus was the distraction. He went in and told the story of how they needed a blacksmith to do a certain job at the castle since theirs were gone for while. Virgil seem to buy into it and when they were busy talking Nasir put him in a headlock until he passed out. It wasn't an easy thing to do. Virgil flailed, threw all of his weight against Nasir, and almost got away from him. Plus it took a good while for him to pass out.

When all was said and done they headed back to the house. By this time Harrison was almost gone and Abram was somehow hanging on for dear life. They didn't do too much to James, but enough where he would be suffering for a long time. Now it was Virgil's turn. When he woke up he was tired to the chair. He looked around and saw his old group of friends. It clicked instantly what was going on. The girl didn't die in the cave that day and she told someone. They had finally found all of them.

Virgil went to clinch his teeth when he noticed his mouth was stuffed with a type of cloth. The prince and some blond guy were talking to each other a ways from him, but then the blond man turned around and got eye leveled with him. He told him that if he hadn't had kids or a family he would be dying today. That when they were done torturing him that he would be staying the jail at the castle.

Virgil tried to talk. The blond man slipped the cloth out of his mouth. He asked if they will be doing anything to his kids. The blond man scuffed and said he wasn't a monster like them. He shoved the cloth back in Virgil's mouth and began to do what they had done to all of the other men. Virgil screamed in pain and even passed out.

Nasir slit Harrison's and Abram's throats at the end of it all. He couldn't stand seeing them pussy foot around death. The other two were going to need doctors, but Marcus assured him that he was going to get ones that he trusted and that they were going to keep quiet about everything. It took almost all day to find a nice spot to bury the bodies. They each dug a hole deep enough to stack at least four bodies and covered them.

When they got back that took the other two to one of the bedrooms and let them actually sleep. The next morning they cleaned and packed everything up into the carriage before heading off. It had been a week to get everyone and do everything. Nasir hated that it took so long, but he did what needed to be done. Marcus gave him a single horse so that he could get back faster. Nasir thanked Marcus for everything he did for him and for his friend. He asked Nasir who exactly is his friend was. Nasir was reluctant at first, but Marcus had a right to know now. He told him it was Ofelia and that the thought of someone hurting her boiled his blood.

Marcus agreed and told him to get going. So that is what Nasir did. It took him half the time to get to get to his village than if he took a carriage. He had went straight to Ofelia's. He hopped off the horse and ran to her house. He banged on the door and almost broke it. There was no answer. He stopped and thought about where she might have been. She did have big dragons. He took off towards the field. He ran as fast as he could, he needed to know she was safe. Nasir prayed she was alright. If she got hurt because he was too stupid to get back in time... he would never forgive himself.

He had just gotten to the clearing. Nasir was running so fast that when he tried to stop he slid. He watched in horror as the dragons going at Vincent.

Marcus walked into the castle Romilly and Harper had just walked into the entrance themselves. Romilly ran up to him and gave him a big hug. She started crying and called him a selfish jerk for not letting any of them know how he was doing. He held her close and ran his hand through her hair. He told her he was sorry and that he just got caught up in the work and that he wasn't used to letting people know how he was. Then he turned to Harper and the both bowed to each other. Harper looked shocked that he would ever bow to her. Marcus apologized for not being there when she arrived. He told her that he hoped she will come to love to live here and that she was okay with everything.

Harper thanked him for being so kind and generous with her and Romilly. She said that she has loved being here so far and that his mom was an angel. He gave a small chuckle at the comment about his mother. He was glad that she was so accepting of having someone from Romilly's home being a personal maiden. Harper also mentioned that Erorn wasn't doing to well. That he has gotten depressed and even might be drinking. Marcus sighed and bowed, excusing himself and letting them go where ever they had planned on going before he walked in.

Marcus got to Erorn's room and knocked softly. "Erorn? I am home." He walked in and saw him sleeping on his bed. He grabbed the bottle and placed it on the nightstand before tucking him under the covers. Bending down Marcus kissed his forehead and whispered that he was deeply sorry.

Elwin had been up for a while. He was already dressed when they walked in. He walked over, bent down and played with Forrest before he stood up and kissed Atlas softly, "Would you mind walking with me to Roshia's? I promised Rowan I would watch her when he had to leave. Roshia is a mover.. she can't do the sitting thing. It would be nice if you came and helped me. I am one man... Roshia is like eight hundred men in one when she is cooped up." He pouted and gave Atlas puppy dog eyes. Forrest had stood up and clung to his father's pants leg, looking up and also giving him puppy dog eyes.
