View Full Version : Rebellion IC

(Here we go folks!)
In the isolated and well protected town of Shades Run an older looking man sat at a desk with a stern expression. He had been turned in mid life, an odd occurance, and such looked a bit older then most made vampires. He had darkly tanned skin and black hair with a dashing of gray on the sides. This only served to prove not all vampires were a sickly white...a silly human misconception.
"Ladies and Gents, we have a problem." he stated calmly. There was a hodge-podge of other vampires infront of him. Some were mades, some halfies, even one pureblood, but they all had one thing in common. They were the rebels leaders, and the man speaking was the top dog of them all. The typically friendly and over talkative Mr. Analies. The fact that he was being so serious made the others uncomfortable. "They ruling purebloods, primarily the ever untraceable Saxton brothers, are going to try and turn us into the enemy at this years summit. Currently there is a large population of halfs and common-pures alike who are undecided in this war. We may have the majority support from mades but too many of them are still bound by their masters wishes. If the summit turns the tide in their favor by gaining support we are going to be destroyed..."
Common-pures was how the rebels described purebloods who were not associated with a clan, politics, or the slave trade. They were just other regular vampires free to choose sides in the civil war. The same went for halfs...some where happy with their current positions, but not all of them were. The war could swing either way, but having all rebels named as public enemys was not going to help their cause any...Analies was sure they would be portrayed as murderers and such.
"What do you propose we do?" asked a felmale halfie with dark red, short hair. She was the faction leader from Red Devil and Analies second in command. Her name was Shiba, she simply prefered it that way. No titles and or last names needed. "Should we try to enlist more people to the cause? up our numbers?"
"I think we just need to get rid of them all." Said the pureblood, a young looking male "Get rid of as many as possible before the summit to cut their numbers...upping our own numbers cant hurt either." Chiffton Tylers was a key component to the rebellion. A well liked pureblood, he helped with the rebels image a great deal. He had also been looked down upon in his life by clan associated pures, they thought he was trash because he was truely unassociated. No one was really sure of his linage besides himself. All that was clear was that he held a true grudge.
"We are doing all of the above, and more." Mr. Analies stated and the whole room looked prepared to hear what 'more' was. "We will lower their numbers, increase ours, and then we attack the summit. Now get on the phone with our unit in Yellville. Explain the full situation and tell them its time to start on their hit list. Chiffton, your going to Yellville to work on public relations...keep our name out of the tabloids. No one needs to know its us taking these politicians out."
Then the meeting was dismissed, everyone left, and Shiba made the call to Yellville.
Kayli and AJay were relaxing at their apartment in uptown Yellville. The night was cool, the starts bright, and they were enjoying some drinks on their little back patio area. It was just big enough for two chairs and a bug zapper. Kayli was sipping a vodka and tonic, AJay a glass of o-neg.
"So what do you think is going to happen to us after the summit?" AJay asked. Kayli rolled her eyes and huffed.
"Really? you cant forget the rebels for one night???" she said. Kayli was not one to think about 'work' on her off day. AJay on the other hadn never seemed to stop thinking about it.
"Well...what if the rumors are tru-" he was cut off by his phone ringing. Not his regular phone, but the protected line given to him by the rebels for work calls. Answering it he listened to the news and nodded. Kayli was looking pissed already.
"On our day off?" she questioned with a heavy sigh.
"No work...just a meeting. They are actually getting all the operatives together, something big is going down." AJay told her standing up and stretching. Kayli got up slowly, not really wanting to go but knowing there was no other way. The two left together and wandered the streets until they came to the abandoned 'historical marker' aka a run down manufacturing plant a rebel sympathizer had purchased and protected for the Yellville groups use. Sliping through on of the secret enterances and though security they emerged into a room filled with bustling ops waiting to be addressed by the Yellville leader Mr. Futon.

Marianna Pierce was walking along the top of a fence. It was one of those chain link fences, with the round bars that lined the top and bottom, and sides of each segment of fence. To her, they were the easiest to walk along. She was bored, but she had nothing to do. She wasn't tired, and she didn't have anywhere to be. That was one thing she liked about being on the streets; she could do whatever she wanted, when she wanted. Of course, she had a place to sleep, and that was where she kept her few belongings... But it wasn't really a place she enjoyed hanging out in. It was just her go-between place.
In her boredom, Marianna found herself humming nursery songs and watching the streets. She eventually decided to stand on top of a light-post, still as a human. It was nice to feel the breeze in her hair, rather than her fur. As she idly watched people go by, most of them failing to notice her, she spotted two people whom she knew to be rebels. They looked like they had somewhere to be, and the girl presumed this meant the rebels were holding another meeting. She grinned, and hopped from her perch to a nearby fence, landing gracefully on four paws. She was a black cat, following the two.
Upon arrival at the old manufacturing plant, Marianna turned back into a little girl, out of sight, and was let into the meeting. Although it was known that she didn't actually do much for the rebel cause, she'd been around enough that many people knew of her. She enjoyed sitting in on meetings, seeing people other than herself who wanted something done about the troubles between Purebloods and everyone else. As usual the small girl, this time in a plain yellow sundress and pigtails, prepared to watch the meeting from the back of the room, leaning up against the wall.

Azura was already seated in a chair waiting for the emergency meeting to start. She was on duty that night when Futon called the command center with instructions to inform everyone of the meeting to take place as soon as possible. That usually wasn't ever good, but who was she to complain? There was far worse things in this world than another emergency meeting...far worse.
Spinning around in the chair she gave a nod to AJay and Kayli a small wink to Marianna before continuing a conversation with another member who was talking to her about any hints of the lastest weapon she was designing. "No..and no again no ones but Fulton knows of it until it's at least far enough in the testing stage...and no again I will not give you a hint except for do something else like the good lad you are."
For a Scot her accent was very heavy but for the most part understandable....long as she didn't get too excited or mad then all sorts of words came out of her mouth that would raise several eyebrows. Tapping her dark red nails on the table waiting, she wanted to get back to her place soon.....

C.W. McKnight was already waiting inside the meeting room when everyone started comming in. Being the only full-blood human there, he always felt a bit out of place at these meetings, but he had gotten used to it. He trusted them, and most of them trusted him, though there were still a few who would probably never fully trust and accept him as one of their own. When he saw the little girl, he gave her a half smile and a nod. He didn't know Marianna very well, in fact, he didn't know many people at all on a personal level, but he felt more protective over her than most others. He knew the little girl appearence was just a disguise, her true appearance was around his age, but she had a way about her he found charming.
He also noticed Azura, who looked impatient and wanting the meeting done and overwith. He sympathized with her on that, watching her tapping her fingers on the table. Azura was another person he liked. She was a weapons person, like he was. A hard woman who wasn't one to to put up with any crap. Though they never really talked, other than a few small words over a meal here and there, she was one of those he was most familiar with. She was good company, she never tried to talk his ear off like most people, or get offended by his lack of socialness. He gave her a small nod when their eyes met, a look that said he aknowledged her pressence and it was good to see her.
He then looked at the man talking to Azura and shook his head. He would have been totally ignoring the guy by now, but this talk of a new weapon intrigued her. He took out a small flask of whiskey from his pocket and took a swig before taking a seat at the table across from Azura to wait for the meeting to start.
07-19-2011, 04:10 PM
Kayli and AJay took notice of everyone present before sitting down at one of the tables. Kayli was wanting to go back home already and she noted that Azura was feeling the same judging from her finger tapping habit. She also saw that McKnight was there. She passed him a friendly wave. AJay was being his typical self and saying hello to everyone who passed and said something, but he never seemed to notice the little things like she did.
After a few more minutes it seemed like everyone was present, even the little Marianna who had followed them in. Kayli had known she was there because she had spotted the little black cat following them, AJay once again had not.
Finally Mr.Futon stepped out of his office doors and the room when silent, all ears at attention.
"My fellow Operatives I have recieved a message from our headquarters in Shades Run. There has been new information recieved about the Saxton Brothers in the capitol. Apparently they wish to turn the public against us at the next Summit, its been told they want to pass a bill making us public enemys to be killed and destroyed. With their kind of influence it wouldnt be hard, so we have been given orders to-"
Mr. Futon was cut off by a single person clapping from the corner. Kayli and AJay both looked but saw no one, then as if he had simply walked out of the corners shadow a young blonde male appeared clapping. "Hes a pureblood...." AJay whispered to his sister. His vampire sixth sense of sorts had picked up the fact and he had never seen this vampire before so he was on edge. Kayli was instantly alert, hand on her gun as well.
"It is simply amaxing how well respected you are around Mr.Futon. You send out word of meeting and everyone is here even before I arrive, let alone they all fall silent and listen to your everyword. Very impressive." The blond stopped clapping and gave a fang filled smile before sitting down. "Continue."
Mr.Futon didnt seem pleased but he simply gave a small cough and said "This my friends would be the rebel forces third in command Chiffton Tylers, he is also head of public relations and is here to help us with our new mission." Chiffton nodded to the crowd and Futon went on "That mission is to activate our hit-list. As you all know we have a large number of purebloods, their locations, and their security levels listed ion our database. We are to eradicate as many of them as possible before the summit. Have I missed anything Mr. Tylers?" he asked.
It was then that Chiffton sat up strait, still smiling. "Just call me Chiffton...really, I prefer it. I would like to inform you all that it is my duty to keep the rebels out of the news...No one needs to think its us doing the dirty work. Also Mr.Futon I am here to make a request..." he looked over the gathered rebels with his bright blue eyes for just a moment before addressing them all "In one month the summit will be held. It is the one time of the year we know where the Saxton brothers are. We plan to attack the summit and dispose of them. It will be dangerous, there will be casualties, but it might just win the war. I am here to garner volenteers to go to the capitol, you dont have to tell me now but please find or contact me by the end of the month." He said it so matter of fact that it took a minute for the reality of the situation to set in. The rebels were going after the capitol city.
"You cant be ser-" Mr.Futon looked shocked.
"We are quite serious." Ciffton stated then added "Now finish explaining the hit-list mission."
For the first time it became very clear how intimidating Futon found Chiffton because he dove right back into the Hit-list information. Explaining that they would be broken up into groups and given a specific pureblood for the group to target and that they would be given all known information on their target, so on and so forth. There was a short question and answer session too, that flew by quickly.
AJay couldnt help staring at Chiffton now. The vampire didnt seem very scary when you first saw him, but he had a way about him and his enterance had been one for the ages. Kayli was still edgy about the whole meeting and wanted to go home more then ever now. Finally they were dismissed and told to check back the following night for a spread sheet detailing who was in whos group.
All the ops seemed to linger around for some socializing and discussion of the meeting afterwards. Kayli spotted Chiffton getting escorted to one of the buildings suites. Shuddering she said "I do not like him. He seems a bit too arrogant to be a leader of any sort if you ask me..."
"We also dont know a thing about him yet Kayli, he could just be putting up a front. He could also be eons older than us...who knows what all that guy has seen." AJay told her and she sighed. Her brother was always the one to give people the benefit of the doubt. He was also quick to get drug into conversation. Rolling her eyes Kayli just walked over to Azura and C.W.
"Howdy guys...so what do you think about this entire mess?" she asked. Kayli really just wanted to go home but she would have to wait on AJay to disentangle himself from conversation first. He had the apartment key. Kayli also liked Azura and C.W. more then most simply because Azura was always interesting to talk with and she felt sorta drawn to C.W. most likely because vampirism reigned dominate in halfbloods and there just werent many humanlikes around, so regular humans were good company to her.
07-19-2011, 04:40 PM
C.W. runned his chin a bit, a rough stubble there from a few days of not shaving, as he thought for a moment. That Chiffton guy was a little suspicious. C.W. didn't doubt he was on their side, not yet anyway, but he struck him as the type of guy to do whatever it takes to get the job done, no matter how immoral or dangerous it might be. C.W. admired determination, he was even willing to sacrafice himself to help the rebellion, but there were still a few lines he would not cross. Finally, C.W. spoke for the first time that day. "I think we should watch each others' backs more than ever right now. I recommend we keep open radio contact and stay close."
He then looked at Azura, his cold, calculating eyes growing the slightest bit softer. "I will double up the perimeter watch while yall decide what to do. I'll be standing by for your orders when you need me." C.W. then stood up, gave everyone a salute, then headed out the door.

As the Rebels and their leaders left, Alanoth was the only one who didn't leave. Instead, he blended in with the shadows and got a closer look at some of the Rebels who were staying behind and chatting. One was a human, two were half bloods, one was actually a known Pureblood rebel, and one was a made vampire who was known to his employers as not a member of the rebellion. He silently memorized their faces and names as they spoke, determined to see where these five went.
Alanoth had infiltrated the Rebellion surprisingly easily. All he had to do was say that he was tired of the Purebloods' regime, and that he had a good amount of money, and they let him come to the meeting like family. He smirked just softly enough to not be heard, amateurs all of them. This tasty information would definitely net a good bonus from Alanoth's employers, and allow him to find specific members of the rebels to take out.
He stepped off to the side, making sure that no one would spot him. He then came out of the shadows and strolled out of the warehouse, pulling out a throwing knife hidden up his sleeve to make ready for some late night hunting.

Meanwhile back at the Capitol city a different kind of meeting was being held. In a dark room, somehwere within the summit building three teenage boys sat at the end of a table. Atleast they looked liked teens...one had auburn hair, one black, and one blonde. All three had bright green gazes that were focused on the egyptian before them.
"So Osiris needs more protection? I thought you Egyptians had everything under control in your little city?" asked the blond who sounded a bit amused, the black haired boy spoke next with little to no inflection in his calm voice at all.
"Now, now brother...let us not ridicule our guest. He has an earnest request from his clan leader. Osiris has always been loyal to our causes after all."
The auburn haired one spoke next in a very perk voice "I think we should assist them. Those rebels are becoming quite a pest after all."
If it wasnt for there different tones of voice and different hair colors all three of the boys would look exactly alike. They were being friendly right now, something they werent exactly known for, but they knew well of Ramses. Finally the blond spoke again.
"Ok, so we will send help. What do we get in return though?" all three of the boys seemed to think for a moment.
"The egyptians must support our bill against the rebels." Chimmed in the perky auburn. The blond nodded in agreement. It was the black haired boy who kept his steady gaze on Ramses.
"You, Ramses..." he started off saying "Will relay a message to your Leader that reinfocements shall be sent under two conditions." at the word two the other boys looked at the darker one. "The first condition is that he fully support our bill to eradicate the rebels. The second, " for the first time the boy smiled "You must go meet up with a spy of ours in Yellville. You will assist him in his mission, after all...I hear your a worthy warrior."
The other two boys seemed very pleased. "Leave it to brother to be such a genius..." said the blond. The auburn haired boy nodded, and with that the deal had been made by the Saxton brothers. Now it was up to Ramses to accept or decline the offer made. The blond slid a phone across the large table they sat at. "You can call Osiris from right here before departing for Yellville and as soon as you agree we will send as many reinforcements as he would like. You just give us the amount he needs."
"Then we will call our spy to let him know your coming. You will both report back to us at consistant intervals." the Auburn haired Saxton finished. It was always creepy how the boys finished eachothers sentences. They may have looked like boys but it was their choosing, no one knew how old the vampires truely were but it was a known fact that they were ancient. Smirking the perky redhead added "So deal or no deal?"

Kasuka, was standing in the darkest part of the room, listening in to what the "rebel" vampires had to say about a massive threat to themselves. Dressed in his very old samurai robes, all three of his swords were tucked into his belt, and arms crossed over his chest, he was dead silent. The reason he was here wasn't because he was a "rebel", he wasn't one period. He is a made vampire, working for the highest bidder, and he has been paid to help the rebels kill a few of the Purebloods. Who paid him? he doesn't even know, nor does he care.
As far as he could tell, he was the oldest vampire in the room, he couldn't tell if that was a good thing or a bad one, but he listened anyways. The desperation in the room was suttle yet very thick at the same time, feeling that their hands were being forced into something they weren't ready for. 'Going up against a enemy that they know is stronger yet they have no information on them surprises me a bit.....owh well..' He thought to himself as he turned himself into mist and left the room before the meeting was even done, right when a blonde vampire showed his presence by clapping. He heard enough, the info he got on his target was true then, he just proved it and he knows it came from one of the rebel-leaders. 'Just as long as the have the coin I don't care....'
Making his way out of the building he was in, he decided to go to where the Purebloods are known to be but suddenly changed his mind since he was in a mixed area of made and pure vampires. 'I know the head or heads of the Purebloods don't live here but someone who knows where to find them could be.....but thats a very blind shoot in the dark....' He stopped in his tracks, placed his hand on his swords and looked around. 'I could always go to the Capital....sounds like a plan to me.' He turned and began to walk off, and to his surprise, as he looked over his shoulder, the meeting was over. Letting out a slight chuckle, he turned back and continued his walk to the Capital.
'I killed many a individual that was said to be hard to find....find and killed them all I did...' With a bit of a sadistic smile he said under his breath. "Ready or not, here I come..." As if playing a childish game of hide-and-seek and he was it. 'I just wonder if their guards are purebloods aswell....sounds a bit fun..' Walking down a dark street into a even darker ally, he vanished from the sight of anyone watching.

Marianna sat through the meeting with a childish restlessness, but she paid attention. She did not like this new move to be made by the rebellion. She understood and agreed with going after the purebloods. That had always been part of the war. But going after the summit? It was a suicide mission. She wondered how many of the people standing around her were going to be alive next month. Were any of them reckless or dumb enough to volunteer? She really didn't know. She really didn't want to think about it.
As some people began to leave, and others stayed around to chat, Marianna took a look around, before smiling. She skipped over to Kayli and Azura, noticing that C.W. had walked away moments before she'd gone over.
"That Mister Tyler's guy is scary." Marianna said, rocking back on her heels and clasping her hands behind her back, her eyes wide. Her voice and demeanor were, as usual, very childish, but she spoke with an almost knowing tone that portrayed a deeper meaning. Sure, the guy was third in command of the rebellion, but he was asking the rebels to go on a suicide mission. Marianna was very concerned about what was going to happen at the Summit. Whatever went down, it wouldn't be good.

Ramses stared at the three men, they were powerful, the rulers of the AVN, they had allowed Ramses’ Clan to build on their land, so he would comply however he could to save his clans stronghold. Reaching his hand forward, he snatched the phone from the desk and lifted it to his face, he took his other hand and began to dial numbers, he pressed the small object to his ear and was met by the dialing tone. “Hello?” A thick Egyptian accent spoke through the sound piece.
“My lord, it is your humble servant, Ramses, I bring good news.” Ramses spoke down the phone loudly, so as the powerful vampires in front of him wouldn’t suspect anything fishy going on.
“We have our aid?”
“Yes, on two conditions my liege.” There was sigh of relief that came down from the other end of the phone.
“What are these, conditions?” Osiris spoke down the phone quickly, almost excitedly, he was a rather calm vampire lord, although his fury was cataclysmic.
“On the first condition, we must fully support their bill, and I must also stay and travel to the Yellville, there is a spy that needs assistance and I am a capable warrior, such is the word of our rulers.”
“Tell them that they should consider it done, although I am not too happy about losing my finest warrior, but I will make do with what soldiers I am supplied with, tell the brothers that 500 men at maximum should be enough, and tell them that I give them thanks.” The phone went dead, Osiris had hung up.
“My lord gives his thanks and for you to consider it done, now, direct me to this Yellville of yours…” Ramses rested his hands on the table, looking down on the men.
The trees blasted past Ramses, he had ran about 29 miles already and it had only been an hour since he had left the cold company of the Saxtons. Yellville was about another 40 miles away, ‘I should make it in time for breakfast’ Ramses chuckled to himself, his legs moved extremely fast, faster than an average vampire, they pounded against the ground, snapping logs and twigs, crushing leaves and insects and leaving a large imprint of his shoes all around. Squirrels and other forest creatures called out to their friends, a wolf, introduced by the Saxtons when the AVN was formed, called out to its brethren as if creating a night song, it’s solemn chorus vibrating through the air. ‘Wolves?’ Ramses thought to himself. ‘Back in Egypt we had our mighty Jackal, I’d like to see one of their Wolves battle one of those.’ The Jackal was the figurehead of the Egyptian clan, it was a sign of power and courage, its fur had ceremonial value to the clan and since the clan relocated into the colder deciduous climate of the AVN they had to made do with the shaggier and larger wolves that prowled the forests in the night. Suddenly, something cracked to the side of Ramses, then something else snapped on the other side. ‘Huh? Someone’s flanking me…’ Ramses took a deep intake of air through his nose, sniffing out his enemy. Suddenly, a tall pale man ran through a bush and ran behind Ramses , on his tail, then next to him another Pale man joined him, this man being smaller. Ramses stopped instantly, it was a custom of his clan to face fights head on and to never back down. “Come, show me what you are made of…” Ramses spoke quietly, trying to scare away the men, they looked at each other, one of them wiped his brow of sweat and took gulp of air before advancing, his friend advanced with him and Ramses stepped backwards, shifting into a fighting stance. The two men began to run at Ramses, one of them leapt into the air and launched himself down. ‘Ah, Rebels, this should be fun.’ Thought Ramses, who leapt out of the way with intense speed. Ramses’s arms flipped forwards like a wave and the earth seemed to move in the same motion, twisting and cracking and knocking the two men off of their feet. Whilst the two men were down, Ramses lifted his fist and pounded it into the earth, the earth in front of his fist seemed to become alive and sharp stalactites shot out of the earth, puncturing the vampire’s hearts. “Tsk.” Ramses’s turned and left the vampires as their bodies slowly corroded under the ever watchful nightsky.

Alanoth recieves a call from the Saxtons telling him that Ramses will be joining him in his assasin spy work and giving him a location to meet Ramses at, you guys can decide the location.
Kayli nodded to Marianna. "I dont like him either...something about him doesnt sit will with me. I dont think its a good idea to attack the Saxtons head on...we know nothing about them. Its suicide..." she sighed then, "But if I know AJay he will jump all over this mission. He feels the need to do whatever he can and it drives me crazy..."
AJay, still caught up in conversation, was already thinking about Chifftons offer. He wouldnt mind joining the attack but something wasnt sitting properly with him about it. This Chiffton guy bothered him and he wanted to learn more about the guy. Finally able to break away he joined his sister, marianna, and Azura.
"Okay, well...now that the interns are done hitting on me, anyone actually considering this Chiffton guys offer or is everyone wanting to investigate him a bit more thoroughly?" Always happy and smiling AJay was perfectly sociable...unlike Kayli who chose to speak to only a few.

When Mr. Fulton explained the hit list as well as uncovering the attempt to kill the Sexton brothers. Azura's eyes narrowed a bit, this was all too familiar to her...hit lists..assasination attempts to change the scales of power....it was Scotland all over again. This meant alot more work for her...she would have to increase production of their weapons and make sure everyone's were up to her standards...perfect weapon..perfect to kill.
Breaking off into chattering groups she gave a slight smile to C.W; she respected him for a human well enough. He knew his stuff and had the overall same views as her. " Nae muckle wull be decided till th'morra it soonds like...I huv perimeter patrol th' nicht sae ah will mak' sure tae keep th' radios oan juist watch yersel' hmm? " Not much will be decided till tomorrow it sounds like...I have perimeter patrol tonight so I'll make sure to keep the radios on just watch yourself hmm?
Not saying anymore as she felt there were unwelcomed people in the shadows.....
"Tyler isnae scary dear...he's gey calculative aye this is gey dangerous bit if we waant a better foothold tae winnin` this war it haes tae be dane sooner th' better ah say. Bit ye ken us....we wilnae mak' a shift blind...not if we kin hulp it. " Tyler isn't scary dear...he's very calculative yes this is very dangerous but if we want a better foothold to winning this war it has to be done sooner the better I say. But you know us....we won't make a move blind...not if we can help it. Carrying a light but serious tone trying to brighten the worried look on Marianna's face before excuseing herself. The perimeter didn't protect itself so much...walking into her room as she grabbed her two weapons of choice, the radio and headed out.
07-20-2011, 01:01 AM
Kasuka froze in mid-step, as if his mind told him something horrid was headed his way. 'I doubt it....' He slowly placed his foot back down, looked up at the sky. Letting his eyes wander about the stars. It was the first time he felt something like this since he killed the one that made him what he is today. In one flawless jump, he landed ontop of the building he was standing beside, eyes not leaving the night sky more or less a single star that was shining brightly yet weaker then all the others. Was this star a representation of what he was feeling? Closing his eyes as he let his body go numb with peace, like he did once he left the Minamoto Clan becoming a farmer. 'Those were the years....' A cool breeze passed through him, calming him more. His mind left him, going back to ancient Japan, the smell of the flowers being carried by the wind, the scent of the grass on a cool day, not to mention the rain, owh the rain. He missed all of it but that was then, and today there were more people, more space was needed yet he still missed it.
Slowling opening his eyes something began to pull him back to where the meeting was, that old manufacturing plant. 'What was made there in the first place?' Giving into that sensation, he turned around and headed back. 'Guess this is my mind telling to gather information on this little problem I just happened to stumble into.' This was the first time he heard about anything about a vampire war and that there was "bad blood" between all vampires. Kind of reminds him of how it was back when he was born. 'I guess times haven't really changed.....just the location and people..."
He started to walk once more and before he knew it, he was back into the meeting room. 'Thank you mind for walking me here.' He laughed to himself under his breath. Looking around the room, it looked like a rag tag of random people, and something told him he might not be welcomed here but he is use to that feeling. Moving out of the doorway so others can walk out, Kasuka walked up to a empty chair and placed his hand on the back of it. He slowly began to enter a light trance and was snapped out of it by some female speaking in a off form of english but he could tell she was from somewhere in Europe due to his travels. He wanted to open his mouth and say something but didn't know what to say, so he stood there like a statue, looking back at the chair before him. 'What info do I need?'

"The problem is that I don't think we'll be able to help it..." Marianna muttered, watching Azura walk away. She then turned back to Kayli and AJay. "Well... He is just the messenger, I guess. But like Azura said, he's.... he's..." She paused, a confused look her face as she tried to remember the word Azura had used. Once it came to her, her face brightened again, and she clapped her hands together once in victory. "Calculative. I think he'll try and force people into volunteering, or something."
Marianna's eyes then went wide, and she looked up at AJay with a mix of fear and pleading on her face. "AJay... You're not going to volunteer, are you?" She knew that Kayli was right, AJay probably would try and join in the mission. She also knew it would be suicide to pretty much anyone who went in, whether they succeeded or not, and she didn't like the thought of anyone around her getting caught up in it, no matter what the Rebel Leaders wanted.

"Dont worry sweetheart I wont volenteer until I know a little more." AJay said with a smile and a squeeze on Mariannas shoulder. He was brave not stupid...then again those two characteristics got mixed up a lot.
"You shouldnt volenteer at all..." Kayli muttered, frowning at him then sighing. "We should be getting home...gonna have to get ready for tomorrow."
AJay nodded and they both said bye to Marianna.
In his office Futon was pacing and a nervous wreck, first Chiffton arrives...then he announces an attack on the capitol...now two of his scouts were missing. An agent finally slipped into his office. He had photographs already in his hands. "Heres whats left of our scouts..." the agent said showing Futon the images.
"We need these inspected...." Futon finally said and left his office back into the meeting room to see who happened to be around. He was looking for an older vampire...someone who had seen a lot. Azura came to mind but she had already left, then he spotted Kasuka. He had seen the man before, but not often. Still...he knew this vampire was old and approached him. "Excuse me...Do you mind looking at some photographs for me?"
Mr. Futon slid the pictures to the vampire "This is whats left of two of our good scouts, we were wondering if you recognized anything about the style used to kill them. They are marked up pretty well."

Alanoth checked the watch he had stolen off an unconscious human, and cursed. Ramses was late, though it was understandable for the distance he had to travel to their meeting place. The bar was dingy, dark, and all of the waitresses attracted a lot of attention from the patrons. A perfect place to have a secret meeting in the corner in the back.
Alanoth sat back, took a sip of his special order bloodwine, and prepared to wait a little longer. He had instructed the bartender to inform Ramses where Alanoth was, and had athrowing knife under the table to make sure he did as instructed. Alanoth's patience was thin that night, after all, Ramses' call had interrupted his food hunting.

Azura was well hidden in her sector of the roof for the night leaning against the wall after telling C.W. and the others on post where her location was...too many times they tried to find her and got scared out of their pants. As with any footsteps she would vaporize like a breeze right where she was...only a few knew her signature to know if it was her or the wind. Debating heavily on the request by the Rebellion's Leaders for the now dubbed "suicide mission." The element of surprise would be key...and to add a few onces of fear or chaos would help. Azura has done this before a long time ago...but she didn't want to dwelve into the past or who she worked closely with resulting in many successful missions. Shaking her head she checked the thigh harness that held her secondary weapon fidgeting as she worked on this inner debate. With the right team she just may agree for the extra mission...just maybe.
Looking up to the night sky closing her eyes briefly she heard the sound of thunder a distance away, looking to her side eyes narrowed. This is America..surely they didn't...he wouldn't....no...there were clouds present and few more distant aways it was just true thunder...a storm must be passing by. Thunder set her on edge, always volunteering to be on patrol with the others until the storm showed itself or near a window to watch it...most were lead to believe she just loved thunderstorms and the wind that accompanied ..she did...missing the storms in Scotland. But it also brought back alot of memories reminding her about the things that are still a dear, intimate, part of her that she had to leave behind.

Standing, quitely in his trance of empty mindedness, he lost track of all things around him until a voice woke his mind, bringing him back. "Excuse me...Do you mind looking at some photographs for me? This is whats left of two of our good scouts, we were wondering if you recognized anything about the style used to kill them. They are marked up pretty well." Kasuka looked at the individual that passed over the many pictures before looking at them. "Hmmmm...." He slowly looked over each picture very slowly, taking in every detail before moving to the next, insuring that each one was placed within his mind. As he finished, he handed the pictures back and without thinking he spoke....
"Kono hito no sakuhin kara handan suru to, karera wa isoide ita, anata wa karera ga hitto suru basho o karera wa shitte ita..... O sanshō shite kudasai...owh....wait...english...I apologize..." Letting out a deep breath, he started over. "Judging by this person's work, they were in a rush, you could tell cause they didn't try to hide what they did...see....." Pointing at one of the pictures which showed massive deformed earth as if it was used as some sort of wepon, he continued, "...they knew where to hit but they truely didn't aim...or the ones killed didn't know how to dodge...did your people figure out which direction this person was running because I doubt he is looking to get to the latest moving picture show and he could know where to find my targ..." He paused to clear his throat, "...your targets"
The person that did that was moving quick and in a hurry, that Kasuka could tell just by the pictures alone. What troubled him was due to what was done, was the individual a fighter or something a bit worse? That alone, he had to test for himself later, but the point of the matter was this, they had to figure out where this person was headed just by tracks alone, which could be a problem. One last thing he could tell from the photos that he didn't say was that the one that did the killing knew that the ones he killed were rebels of some sort, and that he was a little of guard but not enough to disrupted his aim. 'He or she is talented....'
All that made him think even more. 'If I find this person, a fight will happen right there....I just have to make sure I have the upper hand....' Deciding to think about all that later, he turned back to the fellow before him to see if he had the answer to his question of which way was he traveling.
07-21-2011, 04:27 AM
"There was a series of footprints leading here towards Yellville but they disappeared. It seems this man was smart enough to decide to cover his tracks. There were no other traces left. He or she could be in the city now..." Futon responded. The fact that this had been a sloppy job by this mystery fighter, and that he knew the scouts were rebels disturbed him. Whoever it was could truely stand as a threat.
Kayli and AJay were walking back towards their apartment now. AJays mind was on this proposed attack on the capitol. He was young, but he was extremely smart and strong. He could fight, had good control over his abilities, and he was a good listener...he would be ideal for the mission. It was weather or not the mission was going to actually get him killed that he was concerned about, and he knew that was Kayli's prime concern too. She felt the need to constantly protect him. She was his shield, and she liked it that way. It gave her some control...and control was something she had never had in her life. AJay knew if he went she would too if for no reason other than this and he needed to worry about her. Kayli could be rash but she was an equally strong fighter.
07-21-2011, 08:39 PM
Marianna frowned as she watched Kayli and AJay leave, the look on her face uncharacteristically grim. The rebellion was a grim business, but Marianna always tried to keep a smile on her face, and embraced her childish personality. She liked that she could put smiles on people's faces sometimes. It made her feel good, especially considering she didn't do much else for the rebels. She just wasn't a fighter.
The child looked around, and realised that most of the vampires she was familiar with had already left. She then approached Mr. Futon, who was speaking to a vampire who looked kind of familiar, but whom she'd never spoken to before. Marianna didn't technically have any rights in the vampire community, because she'd never been freed. Because of this, she pretty much lived on the streets, and had trouble getting hold of blood. Which meant she wasn't afraid to ask people for it, Mr. Futon included.
"Mister Futon..." She started, stretching his name out a little as she looked up at him with wide eyes. "Do you know where I can get some blood? I'm hungry." She pouted at him, though she was smiling a little.

The life around Yellville became utterly quiet as Ramses approached, a sweet smell lingered in the air, it smelled like past lusts and loves, there was something familiar about this place, as if it held its arms around something that belonged to Ramses, something that was his that he lost a long time ago. “Hmmm…” Ramses pondered on this, his legs still moving in a blur, he was late for the meeting, only by twenty minutes but that was still twenty minutes of his comrades time that he had wasted, however, he would have to explain his little ‘problem’ he had half way to the city. It was a large city, filled with tower blocks that reached into the sky and then small factory buildings that dotted around outside, finally, Ramses emerged from the forest and onto the pavement of a road, his legs still moving extremely fast. ‘We arranged to meet at the bar down Crawley Avenue…’ Ramses thought to himself, his legs pounding down on the hard manmade floor coverings, the scent that he smelt still lingered in the air, painting the sky with emotion, it caused Ramses to stop for a moment, he took a big breath in and waited for a few seconds, he then turned around the corner and took another left, he had entered Crawley Avenue.
The bar was a medium size and full of vampires sipping on blood, most of them looked like grubby scroungers who had nothing to do with their lives other than spend all their money on blood to guzzle every night, however, there was a man sitting in the corner of the room, on his body he wore a black trench coat, black trousers, black boots and black sunglasses, his hair was black, short and wavy and he seemed to hide something behind his image, secrets maybe? Ramses was unsure, but he did know that this was his contact, and he was sure that his contact had seen him. Ramses began to push his way through the crowd, a few of the vampires scowled at him and one of them even turned and started yelling at him, threatening to punch his lights out, however Ramses ignored them, he did not want to start a brawl inside the bar on his first night of being in the city. When he had finally reached the table in the corner of the room, he took a seat on a stool and looked at the man who looked back at him, his arm underneath the table. Ramses sighed and grinned at the vampire. “That knife won’t do anything, drop it or put it away, I didn’t come here to fight.” The slight Egyptian accent accompanied the words that rolled off of Ramses’s tongue, he flicked his hand into his pockets and pulled out and handful of sand, crushing it inside his grasp and forming rock, he moved the rock downwards into the path of the knife, just as a bit of protection, the rock covered all of his legs but it was so thin that it was only noticeable if you looked directly at it, only a small example of Ramses’s morphing abilities. “Now, what’ve you found out?”…

Azura moved all around her post on the perimeter....listening to the thunder pattern as she rotated her head stretching her neck. When it was fully dark out keeping them well hidden everyone was able to move around up top to their liking. Moving to the west she stood stall pacing back and forth as if she was expecting something to happen.
Plenty of thunder...but no lightning. Very interesting.... She thought to herself for a long time; before doing something she hasn't done for almost 60 years. Gathering the air around her she let her long red locks free to flow with the swirling wind around. Moving her hands in rotation forming a specialized ball of collected wind that touched her body. Azura took a deep breath in, leaning into soft cupped hands...
" Ramses....." the one name escaped her lips, whispered with her sweetest voice and scent. One more long look at the thunder that suddenly stopped in the outskirts of the city; before blowing it out of her hands like a feather. The summoned swirling wind taking ball of iridescent blue away to roam the air searching for the name whispered from the woman.
Messing with a ring on her left ring finger enscribed in a language only very selected purebloods would remember; and that she never took off. Purposely moving it side to side, the pureblood grabbed the radio from her hip turning the dial up to communicate.
" Awright a' body oan patrol..eyes open oot thare something isnae richt aboot this nicht air sae lets keek alive." Hey everyone on patrol..eyes open out there something isn't right about this night air so lets look alive.
There was no need to contact Mr. Fulton she assured herself, it was just a wondering mind of someone who hasn't had her blood for the night yet. Leaning back against the short wall sitting on the edge somewhat she waited in her open breeze form this time keeping the radio volume up to listen to the bored whispered chatter of the others.
07-22-2011, 02:45 AM
Mr. Futon blinked when Marianna approached. He knew of the little girl and he was naturally a kind helping soul. "Yes I can give you some blood sweetheart...I believe you know where the fridge in my room is?" the vampire offered. "Tedd will let you through the door." he added nodding to the guard by his office door.
Upstairs in a private sweet, Chiffton made a phone call. "All is well and going according to plan, just thought I would let you know I had arrived." there was a pause as whoever was on the other end spoke he chuckled "Dont worry." then hung up, a smile on his face.
Kayli and AJay had made it home and were sitting on their pourch again observing the unusual sky patterns. Something wasnt right and they both knew it.
07-22-2011, 03:00 AM
To his surprise the man before him answer quickly ."There was a series of footprints leading here towards Yellville but they disappeared. It seems this man was smart enough to decide to cover his tracks. There were no other traces left. He or she could be in the city now..." Kasuka took a second to breath all that in. "So....the person is in this city and most likely is trying to lay low..." One of the very many things that he knew about the Vampire underworld was that even thou they have been accepted, vampires don't really like hanging around humans since they bring loads of unwanted attention. "I guess we both gained something here." Motioning to the photos yet again as young individual approached them, asking for blood.
Kasuka turned to look at this person fully, letting his mind race. '...young...asking for blood...means they were turned like I...but asking means they haven't been freed so they can't go to a Blood-Bank...' Something he was good at was reading people, another thing he learned and the only thing he didn't like since he was right 90% of the time. The man before him said something about a fridge, but Kasuka's nice nature took hold. "That won't be needed...here...." he said to the young vampire, reaching into his sleeve, pulling out two bags of blood and a jade necklace, handing all three to her. "....keep the necklance... it has been my good luck charm for nearly 1465 years...." He said with a smile, as he finished his sentence. "..I know your young...feel free to ask for anything...." He felt a slight amount of fear from the child over what was said at the meeting but didn't read too much into it. "I bet you are stronger then you look....want to go looking for a certain someone with me?" The someone was the vampire that had his work photographed. That vampire peaked Kasuka's interest and samurai spirit aswell.
After he finished his sentence, a chill crossed his spine, almost like earlier just before he came back to this room. 'What was that?' He thought to himself as confusion became noticable on his face. Snapping out of it, he bowed to both the young vampire before him and the man who hand the pictures. "I am sorry but there is something I have to look into and I honestly don't know what it is yet." Rasing from the bow and walking for the exit, he stopped. Looking at the young vampire, he said, "If you don't want to follow me thats fine....my feelings won't get hurt, but I will protect you and you would get some well needed field experience since you are a rebel here." His smile showed as he took off in a hard sprint to the roof.
'Ok...why am I here...what do I need to see?' Thinking as he jumped around until he got the very tip of the building. The sky took a hold of him, and once more something told him to watch is back.
07-22-2011, 02:21 PM
Marianna's face lit up with a smile, and she put the necklace around her neck, before following Kasuka. As she ran to catch up with him, she made the change from girl to cat, finding the smaller and swifter form easier to move about in.
She caught up to Kasuka easily, the jade necklace he gave her hanging from her neck. She meowed happily, giving him a cat's equivalent to a smile, before changing back into a child.
"I didn't get to introduce myself. I'm Marianna. How can I help?"
07-22-2011, 09:51 PM
Mika sits alone in the abounded house that once housed her family. It had been a couple of weeks since the murder of her family. She sips blood wine from a small glass as she stares out the window. “Those little demons…they say I’m weak… that losing my family was for the best…” just thinking of the conversation she had with Saxton brothers made her even more upset. “I will show them how weak I am…I will destroy them the same way my family was.” She smiles an evil grin as she looks up the street to where the Summit set.
Suddenly her attention was drawn away from the window as she hears the door open. A tall man stands in the door way his faces and body is covered making it hard for her to tell his identity. “Who the hell are you? And what are you doing in my home? “She said in an angered tone. The man walks in and sits a paper on the table and turns leaving out the door. Mika stands there a moment before she makes her way toward the paper.
“There was a meeting in Yellville today the rebels are planning an attack. Here is your chance Mika you want revenge…You want to watch the Brothers fall… Here is the way. Go to Yellville… join the rebels in their battle. But beware the brothers are not stupid… They know you and your temper but most of all they know you’re a threat. If you leave Capital City they’re going to know… They well send men to kill you so you must be smart about it…”
Mika looked over the paper then ran to the door to see which way the strange man had went, but she was too late. She closes the door and looks over the paper over and over. “Yellville” she said then goes to an old desk and pulls out a map searching for the city. She packs a bag of supplies and a map, and makes her way out the door. As she walks down the street feeling the eyes of the pure bloods on her she notices a man following her as she heads toward the woods.
She stops and stares deep into his eyes not blinking or moving and smiles “Thank you so much for walking me this far but its best you go now” The man’s eyes fluttered a little before nodding and walking away. She smiles and snaps the bag around her waist and over her shoulders she knew it would only be a couple of minutes before he realized what had happen. She shifts into a hound and runs throw the woods on her way to Yellville.

Kasuka, looked at the girl. "Marianna....I'm honored to meet you." He finished with a bow. "I am Kasuka Ogawa." He looked back up at the girl that was next to him, '..shape shifting into a cat....never saw or heard of that power before...' Turning to fully face her, he reached into his kamono and grabbed his tanto, (if you want to know what his wepons look like, there is a pic on his profile, the tanto is the smallest blade in the pic) , and handed it to the girl. "I have noticed you don't have something to protect yourself, so please take this...even thou you can turn into a cat to flee your enemey, a cat must have claws just incase it is cornered by rabid animals." The gold design on the blue sheath glowed in the moonlight, making it look as if it was the holy grail of all bladed weapons. "Beta-Wolf...is the name my father gave to it, and one that I have come to trust.....this blade saved my life several times, trust in it and it will protect you....the blade alone can cut through 5 men all in a single slash, that I have test myself before I became a vampire....as of now I am handing you a weapon to protect yourself...nothing more." His eyes were of a protective nature as he looked at Marianna, not wanting anything to happen to her since she reminded Kasuka of someone he came to love many a year ago.
Like a cold breeze from the artic, Kasuka sensed a yearning to return to the meeting room, yet he didn't want to leave the roof since something drove him up here in the first place. "...I came up here looking for any sign to help me find a very dangerous individual, and now something calls me back down to the meeting room...Marianna, I would really like if you could become my eyes and ears up here, please look or find something that might help me and when I get back, I promise you, I will help you, that is if you want the help, in getting your freedom like I have obtained...." He moved around and a few steps past the girl without lifting his feet, "...I hardly ask for it, but Marianna, I need help with this so can you help me?" And before he could hear a answer he was gone, turning himself into mist, passing through the flooring and forming yet again in the meeting room that has now become void of a single person.
Standing in the middle of the dark room, Kasuka closed his eyes, taking deep breaths, searching his mind as to why he was now back in this room for a third time. "If anyone is here....make your presence known."
07-23-2011, 05:02 AM
Chiffton had been in the room given him for a while now. He had gotten onto the database and given the names of the purebloods he found to be the best targets to Futon so that he could compile the spreadsheet to be posted the following night. As he sat he felt something brushing his mind once more. He had felt it earlier, twice in fact. He had an idea of its source but now was the time to figure out what, or who, it was. Chiffton disappeared into the shadows then, using them like some sort of hidden pathway. It was how he traveled...walk into a shadow here walk out of one there.
Walking out into the meeting room he smiled. His assumptions had been correct.
"No need to ask me twice friend. Im right here. Now would you like to know whats happening to you...Kasuka?" yes he knew the other vamps name "See im the one who originally hired you and I happen to know of your age and experience. Your begining to gain your sixth sense...all old vampires gain it, and weather you believe it or not I am much older then even you. Ive mastered this ability. You mind will tell you things...lead you places...one day you will be in a fight and wonder 'why did i do that?' and it will be your inner mind moving your body." he stopped and laughed to himself "Its quite amazing, and I can help you learn to control it Kasuka...I just want to request your help first."
Motioning for the other vampire to follow him, Chiffton opened a door and lead Kasuka to his private room. Entering he shut the door behind them.
About an hour later Kasuka emerged with a check, a very hefty check. Chiffton was smiling from his desk. "Thank you Kasuka...now do as your told. Oh! and go find Marriana...you dont want her in trouble do you?"
Kasuka was going to be at the captiol battle, that was now certain. He was also charged to find and keep tabs on the mystery assasin from earlier. Chiffton wanted to know what he was doing, he also had reason to believe there were two men in the city who were a threat to the rebels but he had resfused to disclose his sources, instead leaving it up to the samurai to decide his next move. He knew his mission now, and Chiffton was confident he wouldnt fail it.
At their apartment Kayli had given herself a good enough buzz to decide it was time for bed. AJay stayed awake though, the weather was bizzare and he had a bad feeling the next night wouldnt be a wonderful one. The rebels were going to make the biggest move they had ever made the entire war...it was a fairly scary time for a young vampire, but AJay had already decided he wouldnt back down easily from the challenge. He was out to destroy the murders who had destroyed his life as a child...he would do whatever it took.
07-23-2011, 09:47 AM
Once Kasuka left, Marianna stood almost perfectly still, clenching the hilt of the tanto in her hand. She stared off into the distance, letting her relaxed gaze take in everything that was happening in the streets below. Though she seemed disinterested, she had long before found that it was the easiest way to watch the world. You easily missed things when you were focused on something specific, because you might not be looking in the right place.
"A cat must have claws, huh?" Marianna muttered to herself. It was a valid point, just one that Marianna had never considered before. She was used to just staying out of the way of trouble, no one paid attention to a child, after all. Standing still on the rooftop, Marianna's usual air of childishness was gone, and a sense of sadness lurked behind her eyes. Eleven years... Many of the people she had met since then had wanted her to grow up. Technically, she was eighteen. She was too old for cute toys and temper tantrums. But she still looked like a kid, and that false innocence was her only defense. She didn't want to change, and no one could make her.
But here she was, holding a weapon. Sure, it was for self-defense, and there was no way she'd use it for otherwise. But she had never really pursued an active part in the rebellion, and here she was, helping Kasuka. She liked the thought of being helpful, and decided for the time being not to worry; she probably wouldn't need to use Beta-Wolf anyway. She then decided to sit at the edge of the rooftop, her feet dangling over the side of the building as she continued to watch her surroundings and wait for Kasuka to get back.

The morning sun was hot, lifting its hearty face for the world to see, the buildings of Yellville were lit up in the light and the streetlamps switched off apart from the odd one that was broken. Much had happened in the night; sinister things; glorious things and plain odd things; the night had shifted and the scales of power were constantly changing, weighing up oppositions and setting events that would happen in the future. Ramses stood on the corner of the Yellville cathedral, the building had been kept due to architectural value but its purpose had been changed, it now worked as a bank, where passports and things like that could be bought, it had been closed down many times, including when borders were closed due to the vampiric secret being found out. Ramses breathed swiftly, his eyes brushing past each monument of the city, his partner was away doing some important things and Ramses was on his own special mission.
The other vampire finished his sentence, the bar had pretty much cleared out and the bartender was giving the pair ominous looks as if to make them feel unwelcome, the vampire stood and walked away from Ramses, he had briefed him and told him his instructions and Ramses was to follow them or his beautiful clan would be wiped off of the face of the earth by rebel scum. Ramses understood this well, but then his sense became clouded. The air became thick and seemingly alive, beside Ramses ear a sweet whisper was carried by the wind. Ramses’s eyes closed and when he opened them his hands were trembling, he looked down to his finger at the Silver and Gold entwined ring, opposite formation to its sister ring, it was a beautiful design, forged at Ramses’s motherland by the strongest and greatest blacksmith of the clan. “Is it you…Azura?” Ramses pushed the table forward, standing up tall, he ran out of the room, hearing the bartender yell out about not paying, he didn’t care about that, it happened everyday at small dirty bars such as the one that Ramses was exiting. The nights breeze was cool on his face, he tensed his leg muscles and then began to run again, following the scent, however, he didn’t find it that night…
07-24-2011, 08:14 PM
Dawn was approaching and Azura needed to get home to rest for the next night...the meeting would be very important as is. Jumping down into the building she dropped off her radio in the line of chargers, weapons in the locker with her name, switching it for a single small dagger that went between her bosoms...nothing like a seductive killer. Bidding the others a restful night she went to her home before anyone was awake like the others who chose not to stay at their operations building though there was plenty of room.
Hearing the thunder in a clean sky again only made her smile....her suspision was confirmed a little more now...touching the ring on her finger as she soon walked up the steps of her 3 bedroom 2 bath house the windows with a special etched glass that would filter the light enough where she or any other vampire would be safe. A pair or gargoyles sitting with their mouths opened somewhat sitting on the ledges of the small covered deck leading to the door. Azura's mind was racing with thoughts...the suicide mission, the targets before it, ....Ramses... The thought of him made her look around down the street staring at the corner for awhile before going inside locking it shut behind. Rubbing the back of her neck the pureblood eye's were turning more red matching her hair....reaching into her own fridge for the bags of blood. Emptying an entire bag into a large goblet before drinking it as if she was dehydrated, a small drop running down the corner of her lips. Eyes returning to their brilliant emerald green a finger running up her chin collecting the blood line as she licked it clean devouring that last drop her long fangs very noticable. New life runnign through her body she changed into a black silk gown laced up in the front slipping into the extravagent king size bed upstairs in her master bedroom watching the sun come up through the etched tinted windows falling asleep to the sound of birds chirping greeting what she couldn't.

“I can smell her…” Ramses suddenly became extremely excited, he leapt off of the top of the cathedral and slammed into the ground, a small crack formed in the old tarmac and Ramses began sprinting to the location without stopping, there were few vampires on the streets at this time of day, due to the fact that only Purebloods can survive in the sun for extended periods of time. Turning a corner, he ran past an old manufacturing plant, something big had happened there, Ramses could feel it in his bones, the earth underneath it seemed stirred, decisions were decided and things where planned, although what these things were was beyond Ramses. ‘I’m not too far now…’ Taking a deep intake of air through his nose, the warm scent continued to caress and tempt him, pulling him towards the location of the creator of the whisper and the smell, it was beautiful and Ramses couldn’t resist it, so he pressed onwards, like a lamb to the slaughter. Turning another corner, Ramses stopped in front of a relatively large house, the outside looked inviting and the windows had a tinted shade to block out the hot sun that beckoned down on all of the houses of the AVN. “This is it, she’s here.” Ramses had never been so sure of something in his life, he began to walk towards the door, ready to open it and see Azura.
The door was locked, no amount of pressure on it was going to open it, two gargoyles guarded the door and when Ramses took a sniff, he could smell something that had been scented by Azura inside the mouth of the gargoyles, reaching in his hand, Ramses dug out the key to her house. “She knew I was here all along!” Ramses mumbled quietly under his breath, he took the key from the mouth and slotted it into the door, twisting the metal piece round and pushing the wooden obstacle forward, it separated from its frame and Ramses was let in. It was dark in the house and the faint sound of breathing could be heard, Azura’s scent was strong here, this was definitely the place. Ramses turned round a corner and found himself in her kitchen, the fridge was closed shut. Ramses wrapped a finger round the side of the fridge door and opened, it, a white light breached the gap, revealing several blood packets, Ramses took one out and poured a little bit into his mouth, he then sealed the packet and placed it back in the fridge, feeling new energy inside him, he turned to the exit and walked out of the room and ended up in the living room, the television was on standby and the coach was empty, it was dark in this room but Ramses still got a feeling of comfort that seemed to radiate off of the furnishings, taking another exit which took him up stairs which brought him to the second floor, the smell was even stronger here and Ramses was close to imploding with excitement, he could feel that she was close, too close for comfort, at least for Ramses, he just wanted to see what he had hunted down, he took a right and pushed open the door; He finally arrived in a bedroom. It was a large room, presumably a master bed there was a bump in the duvet that was moving up and down slowly, Ramses smiled and looked down at his ring, before finding a chair to sit on and staying there for the day. “Ah…Azura…”

After his little meeting with Chiffton, Kasuka now held a check that represented a large sum of money, and that amount was one he never even considered recieving. 'Guess the only thing that is left is for me to keep my word....' He placed the check within his kimono as he made his way up to the roof where a waiting Marianna waited. As he got closer he could tell there was a depression about her, as if she was slightly saddened in the fact he told her that she is will need to defend herself sooner or later, something he knew that ate at her. It was the truth, and even though it didn't want to be known, it had to be said.
He came to a sitting postion right beside Marianna, letting his legs hang over aswell, letting one of his arms out of his clothing to exposed his upper-left torso, full of elegant tattoos. A deep breath left him as he looked at his feet as he spoke. "I'm sorry Marianna....." He knew he did something that took a little more life out of her spirit and there was no way that she would get that back, no matter what happened. "....I just.....You remind me of the sister that I had before I was turned....I don't know why...." He looked up and noticed that the dark was fading, meaning the sun would raising within the hour. '...It's been forever since I saw a sunrise...' Eyes closed to hide sorrow that began to show itself more and more in the past few days.
Out of the back of his mind, a invisible force told Kasuka that his target was near, but with the sun on the rise he would have to put the hunt on hold. He looked over to Marianna and spoke, "....Do you have a place to go to so you won't get hit by the Sun's UV? I'll have to find somewhere myself...." The end of that sentance was truth. Kasuka never set foot in this side of the world so he was as lost and out of place like a fish on dry land, something he became use to as it was a perk of the job. He began to stand, his left side torso still showing its bright and dark colors in the breaking light that was starting to show, what happened in that quite room, just Chiffton and himself was still eatting at him, but he told himself to think about it later. Looking down to Marianna, he offered his hand to help her up. "...Owh...you notice anything strange? You can tell me as I follow you to your place of saftey from the sun." He couldn't help but let a slight smile show on his face.

The sun was starting to rise. AJay was thankful for the fact that he wasnt light sensetive...he burned easily and couldnt tan but he didnt fry and die either. He pulled his sunglasses off his shirt and slid them on. He yawned but waited till the sun was up before smiling, walking inside, then going to bed he slept like the dead.
As her alarm went off Kayli fell out of bed, smacked it, smacked it again cause she missed the snooze, the stood up untangling herself from her sheets and stretching. The day had passed, it was now late sunset and the sun had just slipped below the horizon. All vampires were coming out of the wood work now and the city lights were gleaming. Showering, then dressing Kayli went to wake up AJay. He was still sound asleep.
"Time to get up..." she said, no reaction "AJay." she said louder, still no reaction "AJAY!" she shouted and he rolled in bed. "Get up! We need to be ready to go."
AJay finally rolled out of bed, stood up, and walked past Kayli to the bathroom for a shower himself. Kayli went to the kitchen and got out a few blood bags for AJay and made herself some scrambled eggs and toast. AJay finally came out and guzzled down his breakfast. Finally seeming awake he smiled. "So do you think we are gonna be paired up together?"
Kayli thought about it. The siblings had always worked well together but they were both inexperienced "Either we get split up or we work with a third person." Kayli responded. AJay frowned but didnt say a work. Kayli was usually right about these things...he could tell she wasnt happy about it though. Not being with him ment she couldnt keep an eye on him.
About an hour later they both left the apartment wide awake and ready to see who they would be paired up with.
At the base Futon posted the spreadsheet. As it was Kayli and Azura were paired together. Chiffton had insisted that he leave a person free, Futon didnt know why but he assumed he would find out. He had chosen to leave AJays position up in the air.

"You have nothing to apologize for." Marianna said, accepting his help up. She then stood at the edge of the rooftop for a moment. "You didn't do anything wrong, silly." She smiled, and giggled, and her usual childish behavior was back, although it was more of an act than it ever had been. But she was most comfortable that way, and a silly little weapon wasn't going to change that. She then began to lead Kasuka to street level, before pausing and looking back at him to make sure he was following.
"I do have a place... But its no five star hotel. I can't even stay in a hotel or something, because I'm a runaway. I was never freed. So if you want to look for something better before the sun rises, I won't blame you." She smiled, then took off running, knowing Kasuka would easily keep up with her if he wanted to.
"I didn't see any strange people or cars or anything... The only thing to mention was the weather. The air felt... strange, almost heavy. Thunder without a storm. I don't know what to make of it, though." Marianna told him as they ran, and since she had nothing else to report, she didn't say anything else. Eventually they arrived at an old meat packing plant that had been shut down for years.
"Home sweet home..." Marianna muttered, standing before the door. She then turned around and looked at Kasuka. "This place has been empty for years, nothing works anymore, but the old freezers are perfect for avoiding the sun. They don't have any windows." She smiled and led him inside to a large room; one of the plant's freezers. Inside there were two mattresses pushed up against each other, complete with sheets and blankets. Though she mostly kept to herself and didn't tend to tell people where she "lived" (so no one would pity her and offer to put her up for a while), she did have a few friends who had gotten her basic things like blankets and mattresses. She pulled the mattresses apart to make two beds, and smiled at Kasuka. "Ta da! It's not much, but its home."
The next night, Marianna snapped awake at sunset. She called it her internal clock, her ability to get up at the same time every night. She almost never slept in, which was good because that meant she always had lots of time to do whatever she needed to, even though most of the time she never needed to do anything. She left the room quietly and returned minutes later in a purple flowered shirt and a pair of shorts, and sat on her bed.
"Kasuka... Time to wake up..."
07-25-2011, 08:48 PM
Alanoth awoke in the morning feeling a bit groggy, not a good thing for his profession. The night befroe-the meeting-had gone well, and he couldnt remember drinking very much. So, the headache he had that was similar to a hangover was a little concerning at first, but it went away after a few moments. He got up, got dressed, prepped his gear, and thought about the meeting from the night before.
"I heard that you have a...history with one called, Azura." That had been one of the things Alanoth had said when the other vamp, Ramses, had sat down and asked about his instructions. "I don't have any official instructions for you because most of the operation is new to me, or at least the part about you joining in. I think, because she's going to be a pain in the neck, you should hunt down Azura and see what you can do about her. I don't care what you do, just get her out of the way so we can get to the rebel leaders."
Alanoth awoke from his daydreaming and det out into the daylight he was impervious to underneath his trenchcoat. He was going runaway hunting today, one in particular who liked cats. She was known to the purebloods as socialising with the rebels, so she might know who leads them and where they meet.

The sun continued to drop during the day, its light reducing across the sky until the quiet haze of night began to bless the horizon, the suns blooming rays dying as the orb of heat and light dropped beneath the landline. "I heard that you have a...history with one called, Azura.” ‘Humph.’ Thought Ramses, still sat on the comfortable chair that was sat in the corner of the master bedroom. ‘You don’t know the half of it…’ Looking back down at his hand, the ring sat comfortably on the finger next to his pinky, as it had sat here for 300 years. “Because she's going to be a pain in the neck.” ‘Ha-ha.’ Ramses chuckled to himself and shook his head, reminiscing on the meeting. ‘You don’t know the half of it.’ “you should hunt down Azura and see what you can do about her.” ‘I’m well ahead of you.’ Ramses thought to himself, he hadn’t said anything during the meeting, he had simply nodded his head, and the smell that was filling the bar was agitating, a mix of alcohol and…Azura. She would be stirring soon; Ramses sat up and got ready for the impending conversation that would happen, preparing himself for a greeting, friendly or unfriendly. He had given Alanoth the number that was on his mobile and had told him to ring him when he needed Ramses, so other than that, he was free to do his own thing, which helped him with the task Alanoth had set him anyway.
07-26-2011, 02:45 AM
Azura soon woke up as the sun was low enough for her to handle if outside..she still had plenty of time to make the meeting. In mid-thought she smelled the strong scent of the one she was and still is betrothed to. Getting up out of bed she only looked at him in silence....into the kitchen grabbing the partially used bag he drank from yesterday pouring the rest into a goblet, filling her own goblet with the rest of the bag enough to satisfy both their thirsts. Walking back still in her gown she took a sip from both goblets showing him they were safe lips covered in blood setting both goblet down, hands placed on his chest keeping him in the chair. The pureblood leaned over and softly kissed the egyptian for a long moment before standing up handing him his goblet standing to drink some of her own before speaking.
"Efter th' stowed oot pardon frae th' Roman heich Council thare wur aye tae mony hunting me doon wanting tae gimme thair ...own punishment. Sae mah da sent me tae th' AVN fur mah 'n' yer protection as thay wur sure tae hunt ye doon 'n' ah coudnae let that happen. After the full pardon from the Roman High Council there were still too many hunting me down wanting to give me their ...own punishment. So my dad sent me to the AVN for my and your protection as they were sure to hunt you down and I couldn't let that happen...." Her eyes were softly looking into his she was speaking the honest truth to the one she loved. "Yer clan lik' mynd wur threatened enough efter th' war ah coudnae see ye hurt....please forgive me fur that. As fur now...I wirk fur th' Rebellion, ainlie tae see that thay git thair deserved change tae be heard 'n' prove thair worth tae th' others...nothing mair. Amurnay oan thair side fully bit amurnay against thaim either. Your clan like mind were threatened enough after the war I couldn't see you hurt....please forgive me for that. As for now...I work for the Rebellion, only to see that they get their deserved change to be heard and prove their worth to the others...nothing more. I am not on their side fully but I am not against them either..."
She had to get that out before the conversation really started, knowing it would answer many questions for him. Her love that grew from the hundred of years betrothed, selected by the clans to keep a strong pureblood line going, was still very much there for Ramses. Drinking more to clear her mind, and most importantly the thirst she went into the walk in closet changing there into her black revealing corset and short black shorts with knee high boots. Comming back out standing before him well within his reach. Ready to listen.
07-26-2011, 05:07 AM
All the way to where Marianna was "living", Kasuka listened to her every word, not speaking much as something was poking at the back of his mind. He tried to ignore it for now and listen to what Marianna had to say. Once to her "home", he saw that she picked a good place since it was tucked away from prying eyes, she didn't have to register with anyone about where she lived, and not to mention no one would venture in since it was very old looking. "I'm actually impressed..good thinking..but you deserve better." Saying under his breath as she showed him where she laid her head. He just simply sat down on it and crossed his legs, after taking off his wooden sandles of course.
He was surprised on how quick it took for her to pass out, Kasuka couldn't help but smile at that. 'Just like Honika....' Moving the rest of his Kimono off his chest to allow the cool morning breeze to relax him, (Don't worry he isn't naked, he is just bare-chested now) his eyes began to close as he drift off into a sleep. In mid day he jolted awake by another feeling, like the ones that lead to him seeing the photos of a assassin, and the meeting with Chiffton, so he knew that this one he couldn't ignore. All it felt like was that Marianna is in grave danger, thus figuring it to be true, Kasuka closed his eyes yet again to act as if he was asleep just incase something or someone decided to make a move on her life during the day.
He stayed awake for the rest of the day, thinking about his old human life, of his sister, the one he couldn't protect no matter how hard he fought or how many he killed.
Everything replayed in his mind, every sword slash, every cut, every scream that came from the distance as his village was attacked by the Taira clan that bloody and demon-like night. All of it played slow in his mind as he saw the eight samurai entered his home where he stood, ready in his Nagare Boshi stance, the eight entered not knowing what waited beyond in the darkness of the home. As they entered, they began to look around, one heard a 'whisp' on the night air, as he called out he could only see as the seven that entered the room with him all toppled over, cut in half at the waste. The man before him held his Katana by the bottom edge of his handle, the sight of this unknown killer took the trespasser off guard and as he brought out his weapon, he too fell like the others. More men followed in after a hail of flamed arrows showered Kasuka's home, seeing no way to live fighting in the house, he grabbed his sister Honika and busted out the back of the home. Running with all his might, he knew he couldn't get far since the village was full of the enemies that were killing his friends, but he had to try. He ran harder to no avail, he was surrounded by the ones toruching his home and they wanted Kasuka's head off his shoulders. They charged.....
All goes back.....a females violent scream of horror is all that his left of that memory.
"Kasuka....time to wake up..." He heard from a gentle voice infront of him. Rasing his head, a tear in his eye, he smiled. "Did you sleep well? How about we try to get something in your system?" He got up from his bed, put his sandles back on and walked out the old packing plant, putting his arms back in kimono, he looked back at Marianna, tear falling from his face as he tried to look happy and sound, "Make sure you got Beta with you....you never know what might happen tonight Marianna."

Alanoth crouched low on the corner of the rooftop and sniffed around. His vampiric sense of smell told him that the runaway was not alone, and that upset him slightly. He doubted that the vamp would be a problem, after all, his smell was not that of someone very strong. However, in Alanoth's profession, you never underestimated a person based on their strength. Skill was almost always a factor in any fight, and Alanoth had plenty.
It was nightime, so there were plenty of shadows to blend in to. Alanoth jumped over to the old building across the way, and slowly made his way down to the window of the apartment he was targeting. He was virtually invisible as he slinked in the window, more than enough shadows shielded his appearance and approach. He snuck over to a corner, readied a few throwing knives, and surveyed the two.
The runaway was small, childlike and certainly not much of a fight. The man in the kimono, however, seemed a worthy adversary. He seemed to have a weapon, but Alanoth's view of the man's back was not very good. He seemed to be both big and strong looking, but Alanoth knew that all the man probably had that could be a threat was skill with whatever weapon he had.

“Their change…” Ramses stood up and stroked Azura, his loves face. “My people, our people, they intend to murder them all, my brothers, just like that filthy clan from France, the Morte de Sang.” Ramses lets go of her face and turns away. “Do you remember, that hot night in my homeland when we fought against them, me and you, they outnumbered us but still, we fought, fueled by love and hate for those who planned to kill us.” Ramses picked up a comb that sat on the table top of Azura’s dressing table. “If I don’t put a stop to this, we will die, there is no question, my clan will fall, so shall yours, those puny half-bloods will control the AVN and then set out on the EVN and every other pureblood clan that does not side with them or lay low, that is why I must end this, by my hand, their leaders will fall.” Turning his head back and his love, his face dropped slightly. “I was sent here, by my comrade, he told me to deal with you, but I came to tell you this.” Walking over to his love, he touched her face and pulled her close, kissing her soft lips. “Please, try to stay out of our way, much blood will have to be spilt, many of your members will die to my hand, please, do not get too attached, I would hate to upset you.” He brushed her hair behind her ear, kissing her again on her head. “I may be on your little list, yes, a comrade of mine briefed me about it, if I am, tell them of me, I would love to be feared for a change…” With that, Ramses turned and walked away, exiting the house.
The French ran through the hot sand, their feet hitting the soil, Ramses and his Betrothed, Azura stood at the front of the unified armies of the Kirkpatrick and the Osiris clans. They stood strong as the enemy advanced. When the French were in range, Ramses slammed his fists into the ground, raising stalactites all over the ground, piercing the bodies of their troops, the stronger ones leapt over them and kept on running. Lifting his hands from the ground and raising them with his palms faced to the air, Ramses began to create walls of sedimentary rock and soldiers made purely out of sand and stone, it was grueling, extremely hard work, but it would hold the French for hours and reduce their numbers greatly. When Ramses’s creations were fully formed, he stepped back, pulling his love with him and let Osiris and the leader of the Kirkpatrick clan take the helm of the battle. As the issue was given, the troops got in position and held their until Ramses’s creations were finished with. “Come my love, return home, I am needed here, be safe.” Ramses kissed Azura and turned to join his leader on the helm of the battlefield.
Pulling a small electronic device out of his pocket, he jabbed in the number of Alanoth’s communication device and pressed the phone to his ear, the dial tone rang sharply in his ear. “Pick up…” ‘We need to attack tonight, kill of some of their members, show them that we are not to be trifled with…’ Ramses thought in his head, this was now a war that Ramses was determined to win…

"Yeah..." Marianna murmered, her hand unconciously going to her waist, where she'd tucked the blade, held there by the waistband of her shorts. There'd been a reason she hadn't chosen to wear a dress that night.
Marianna stared at Kasuka's face for a moment, her expression thoughtful. "Don't dwell on it." She said, smiling softly. "Whatever is making you sad. Don't dwell on it." She then turned her head to the side, as if searching for something she couldn't see, a look of confusion on her face. Something was... off. She then shook her head, dismissing it as nerves. She'd never carried a weapon before. That had to be it. She then looked back to Kasuka, a full blown smile on her face, though with a slightly apologetic expression.
"Yeah... I'm afraid I'm no help when it comes to getting blood. Sorry... There are limited things I can do in this city." She shrugged a little, but she didn't look down. She'd gotten used to her situation, and she tried not to dwell on it. It worked for her.
"Aside from that... Do you have a plan for tonight?"

Mika wipes her faces and pulls herself to a sitting position in the hotel’s bed. She hadn’t quite got a hang of her shifting abilities which extremely weaken her, and made her urge to feed unbearable. She had taken shelter in a small trash hotel room in Yellville during the day to keep from being noticed by the rebels. The sun was starting to set and she knew she needed to make her move, but in the back of her mind she couldn’t help but feel intimidated. She was a well-known solider for the Saxton brothers and had lead them into many battles against the rebels forces; she couldn’t help but to thank of this as a suicide mission. She proceeds to get dressed and prepared for what laid in front of her. She walks down and pays the manager for the day she had spent and makes her way onto the streets moving hastily through avoiding eye contact. She could sense the other nearby but there was strange about this town it had a cold feeling to it… Mika was getting older but still had quite mastered her sixth sense capability but she didn’t need that to sense something wasn’t right… She trailed on until she spotted something quite odd. It was what looked to be old warehouse but people were being ushered in.
She scoped out the building it seemed to have only one guard watching the door. Giving her reputation she knew there was no way of getting in throw that door. She scoped out the build searching for any weak points where she could enter and only founded one. It was a small window on the 2nd floor an open invite. She makes her way out of sight and climbs underneath the gate that surrounded the facility after she was on the property she hid in a corner waiting for the perfect moment. She rambles throw her bag making sure everything was still there pulling out two maps that read Capital City at the top “this is the only thing that will save me.. Without these I’m better off dead,” she thought, but she had a plan she would offer the maps of the city and there vantages points only for immunity, and to help bring down the killers of Capital city. She leaps and lands on a small ledge next to the window and slowly peers into it. Noticing it was what looked like a study she slowly and silently enters the room noticing a half drink glass of blood on the table, weak and thirsty she ignored it as she searched the room. “Stop there… State your name… how you got in here...”
Mika turned around “You b**ch I know who you are,” the young gentleman says as he nervously reaches for his radio. Mika turns around and begins to walk toward him. “It’s good to know someone is an admirer of my work,” her hunger inside growing. “We have a hostel repeat we have a hostel in the stu…,” he manages to get out before she slams him against the door covering his mouth and throwing the radio across the room. “I should kill you for that...” her fang begins to show as she gets closer to his neck, but is caught off guard by approaching footsteps. She stares deep into his eyes” tell them it was a mistake... You panicked when you heard a noise.” The boy’s eyes fluttered.
She slowly hurries out the door searching for an unlocked door. She finally grabs one and slings it open and slides into the darkness. She began to look around the room which seemed to be a Guest suite she walks over to a desk where a bunch of papers sit. Clifton was written on the paper. “Clifton…I have never heard of the name” she thought as she rambled throw the desk. She could hear the rebels begin to meeting down below. As they started to feel in for the meeting she sits there almost prying no one other than the stupid boy she had push had heard the radio urgent call. She leans against the door trying to listen to the conversation.
07-26-2011, 10:43 PM
Marianna's kindness was something he hasn't been around for several hundreds of years, one of the few things that kept him attached to the young one. She needed to be protected for the time being aswell as helped seeing how she is having trouble getting the basics to live."Don't dwell on it...whatever is making you sad, don't dwell on it." '....easy for you to say young one...I'll never forget that night....' He pushed his sadness down to the bottom of his body, taking a breath then letting out slowly. Still looking at Marianna, something seemed to bug her, the same feeling was within Kasuka's mind, he just didn't act on it. "Yeah... I'm afraid I'm no help when it comes to getting blood. Sorry... There are limited things I can do in this city. Aside from that... Do you have a plan for tonight?"
Kasuka turned, placing both his hands on the girls shoulders, giving a small smile. "I can make it to where you will no longer be limited....I can tell you have yet to be freed by the one that turned you, I think we should visit this indivdual and solve this problem you have...." Kasuka looked up, spotting with the help of a very very faint noise of something activating a individual trying to be stealty. Moving so that he put himself between this mystery person and Marianna, Kasuka flicked his wrist raising the moisture in the area. "...sorry about this Marianna but something has been telling me that someone wishs to cause you harm..." The moisture became heavy, solidifying, and with another flick of his wrist, the dropplets that formed began to join together, covering the entire level they were on. '...now for some light...' Then in a instent, they all began to glow like a lamp lights bulb as they acted like crystals, reflected the light from the moon and any other source that was near by.
Adressing the mystery person, Kasuka began to speak in a deeper accent of his ancient Japan with a hint of his vampiric voice that he only used against people he didn't like. "Hiding is for cowards....show yourself....with all this light you can't possibly hide in the darkness again like a weakling would." This person didn't have Kasuka worried nor did he show any fear of a fight. Kasuka was one that has been in countless fights in his life time, that alone gave him the knowledge to win, thats why he was hired by Chiffton to do the work that he doubted the ones under him could do. Again in the same voice he spoke. "I will not say this again...show yourself!" removing his arms from his kimono to expose his upper body, Yakuza tattoos and scars becoming visable. Looking back at Marianna, he spoke in a gentle voice like he has been addressing her from the moment he meet her. "Stay behind me Honik....Marianna, as long as I have life in me you will not be harmed."
(to explain what he did with his powers, he simply gathered all the mosture he could find, combined them into crystals no bigger then 3 inchs and made them glow. They are not all over the place, but they are far enough away that the entire first floor is without darkness. All the moisture that one would think that would be near/around Kasuka isn't there, all the moisture is in those crystal like lights...he has been in enought fights to know NOT to rely on his vampire power of mist in combat since it provides little offensive advantage.)
07-26-2011, 11:34 PM
AJay and Kayli had arrived at the meeting. They were surprised to notice that Azura wasnt there yet...she was usually early. Kasuka and Marriana werent hiding in the shadows either, odd. They were also surprised that Mr.Futon was currently explaining things. Already started...something really had the Yellville rebel leader amped and worried if he would start a meeting before all were present.
"Joey and Tyrell will be going after Fredrick Le'ponze in the french quarter..." he was going down the list and pairs were nodding and picking up paperwork concerning their pureblood targets. After a few minutes she heard "Kayli and Azura will be targeting Raphael Merlot. He is part of the spanish clan in the northern sector of the city." Kayli had known she wouldnt be with AJay but it still saddened her...finally after a few more minutes they were at the end of the list and AJay hadnt been called. "AJay I was asked to leave one person free...I dont know why but I figured your strong and calm, able to work with anyone, so your my free-bee."
"He was left free for this very reason..." Came a cheery voice out of a shadowed door way. Chiffton emerged with Mika in tow. A few rebels jumped up but one look from the blonde and they sat back down quickly. "This is Mika, im sure your all aware of who she is. Im here to tell you she has come over and switched sides...some rather unfortuante incidents occured that brought her around to this desicion, dont ask her to many questions. I sent for her the other night." grinning he looked at AJay "She willl be your partner and you will be going after a pureblood named Monique Hapburn. She also has provided us with some useful information..." Chiffton held up some maps then, grinning. He and Futon would be busy that night.
AJay looked stunned for a moment but quickly smiled. "Ok then."
Kayli then looked stunned. She couldnt believe her brother accepted that easily...then again it was AJay...Kayli couldnt wait for Azura to show up so they could get their paperwork and get this over.
Mere minutes ago.....
Chiffton had seen Mika slip into his room. She was trying desperately to not be noticed...it was almost cute. She was so sneaky.
"Dont fret dear...Im the one who called you here. I would be Chiffton Tylers, and I asume you read my name while snooping on my papers...sneaky girl." He said appearing directly behind her. She had been surprised but he had calmed her quickly and brough her to the meeting. He had heard of her plight from the resources he held at the capitol. "If your wondering im the rebel third in command, so your safe with me."
Chiffton was now discussing with Futon why he had selected the targets he had and why Kasuka hadnt been on the list of rebels, apparently Chiffton had him doing other things...Kayli was fuming inside, this had been rather sudden and clearly Futon didnt like it either but the vamp was going ahead with Chifftons plans. Finally she sighed, she was mad about not being with her brother...that was it. She needed to calm down. After all Azura couldnt be long could she?
AJay on the other hand had left her side and walked over to Mika who was still by Chiffton. Extending a hand he smiled "Its nice to meet you partner."

Azura assured Ramses that if he stays out of her way she would do the same knowing eachother's position all to well. But all the years that passed since they saw eachother apparently didn't change their feelings for eachother. Wondering in the far back of her mind when their betrothal would become an eternal union. The two agreeing to meet back here at dawn she rushed off to the meeting a bit late but the information would be worth it...this was going to be very interesting.
At the main door Azura's sixth senses started to really show themselves, an image flash of Mika in her mind. She's here!! Immediatley disappearing now as a draft in the large building she stayed at the side of the doorframe where the meeting was taking place. Arriving just in time to hear that Kayli and her were paired to kill Raphael Merlot. Not an easy target by far.....Then Chiffton surprised her appearing with Mika...explaining why she was there and what she brought to the team. He may trust her but she wasn't going to until she truly proved herself.
Light breeze entering the meeting room, she pushed Mika down hard on the table. Appearing on top one hand on her collarbone..the other with a knife from her boot near her heart. " Ah ken wha ye are...yes gey weel. Try anythin' funny that jeapardizes th' half-bloods frae proving themselves at th' Capitol....and ye wilnae mind anither thing ever again git it? I know who you are...yes very well. Try anything funny that jeapardizes the half-bloods from proving themselves at the Capitol....and you won't remember another thing ever again got it?!! Jumping down to the ground helping her back up to sit by Kayli giving Chiffton a "don't dare tell me otherwise," look.
"Ah huv news...the Osiris Clan is bein' threatened by her brothers unless thay cooperate wi' this lest hunt afore th' capitol. Thay sent yin o' thair strongest Ramses tae tak' care o' it. He's gey stong 'n' cunning, fur half-bloods.....you're gaun tae huv oan hell o' a rammy oan yer hauns. I have news...the Osiris Clan is being threatened by her brothers unless they cooperate with this last hunt before the capitol. They sent one of their strongest Ramses to take care of it. He's very stong and cunning, for half-bloods.....you're going to have on hell of a fight on your hands.

Alanoth had long since frozen when the lights suddenly came on. The entire building may as well have been lit up, and Alanoth's corner was among many that received the full brunt of the light. He had had to unfuse with the shadows in order to not be destoyed, and now he was completely exposed. However, the light was bright enough that if he stayed out of the warrior's line of sight, he would still remain partially hidden.
The now known to Alanoth as a Japanese warrior spoke out to the room in general, obviously Alanoth's ruse had not worked as well as he had planned. The insult, calling him a coward for simply being a master of stealth, stung at Alanoth's pride, but he knew from experience that slashing in anger would get him nowhere. He needed a plan before he could attack, and he had many ideas.
Unexpectedly, his phone rang at that exact moment. He knew it had already given away his postition, so he threw several poisoned knives at the two vamps, and bolted out the window. After falling to the ground, rolling in midair, and landing on his feet, he sprang and ran down the street. He kept running, but pulled out his phone and hit the answer call button. He put it to his ear and spoke into it venomously.
"What?! Whoever this is, you interrupted a very important engagement."

“It’s me.” Ramses spoke down the phone to a seemingly agitated Alanoth. “We need to attack, today, we need to thin as many of their numbers as we can, I’ll head there and meet you and we can attack, they believe that we are push overs, how soon will you be able to get here?” Ramses stood on top of the building in front of the meeting place of the Rebels, Azura had arrived there and the place was already bustling. “Hurry if you could, I want to start as soon as possible, they have quite large numbers…
07-27-2011, 02:54 AM
Kayli was quite happy to see Azura arrive and even happier to see her pounce on Mika. She couldnt help smiling. It would take her a bit to trust the girl...particularly since she was paired with her brother.
AJay just sighed. Yup Kayli and Azura would make one hell of a tag team. "Not all of us are quite so wild..." in a muted whisper to Mika making sure she was ok. He would be nice to her even if the others didnt trust her. AJay was actually glad Kayli wasnt paired with him. She was too overprotective and thought he was rash and gulible...he wasnt. He was smart and brave, now he could prove it.
What Azura said next though was news for the whole group. Many of the rebels became restless and the noise level within the building began to rise until lights cut off for a second. Everyone fell silent...then someone snapped their fingers and the lights came back on. Chiffton was standing with his hand up. Clearly he had caused the little light show.
"If infact Ramses is after us, wouldnt it be smart to be quiet and alert instead of loud and strung out?" The blonde vampire stated. Everyone began to speak again but quietly and everyone was much more alert. "For all we know he isnt alone either." he added. Satisfied with the reaction he sat back down. Futon began to organize some guards, unaware that the man in mention was actually just outside.
Kayli sighed. Chiffton irritated her but he was right. She was curious though and Azura was right there next to her. "Out of curiosity...how did you find this out?" she asked quietly to Azura.
07-27-2011, 03:54 AM
Allesandro yawned. He had just woken up and had decided to explore this city. He was wearing his casual wear. He had a plain, light blue shirt on, cargo shorts, and sandals. He had a backpack on, inside was his plain, black suit. He pulled a bug out of his hair. Once again, he had to sleep in a tree. About a week ago, someone had stole his wallet and blood packs. He hadn't had decent sleep since. And he was dirtiet than theground. The way he was now, no one would believe he was pure-blooded.
He had come here from rumors that the rebels had some kind of group here. It would be the perfect time to stop them. However, he was to tired, plus numbers weren't on his side. If only he could find someone who knew him. Until then, he'd have to look around and memorize everything.
He held his stomach as he walked. He hadn't had anything in his stomach for a week. He saw a man run by, talking on a phone. He came from what looked like an abandoned building. He shrugged and started to walk over to it. For some odd reason, he had seen lights coming out of the windows. 'Probably seeing things from hunger' he thought and quickened his pace.
07-27-2011, 04:43 AM
Mika stood next to Chiffton with her hand crossed in front of her as she stared out into the rebels listening to him speak about her joining the group, and how she had contributed to their cause by bring them the Capital City’s maps. Yet, there eyes glare at her with hatred, but she didn’t let it bother her. “She will be your partner and you will be going after a pureblood named Monique Hapburn.” She suddenly snapped back to reality when she heard the sentence. “Partners….” She thought to herself as she looked around the room searching for the owner of the name, until she noticed a stunned young man staring at her, but it wasn’t a hatred look it was actually quite nice.
Mika looks at him with a lifeless look. “Who would want to be paired with a known enemy “she thought to herself, but she was taken off guard when he agreed.
She stood there as Ajay approached her with his hand extended she was a little worried about his niceness. She was a pureblood that had killed millions of his people, but he actually seemed happy to be paired with her. She raises her hand but before it makes contact she is shoved down hard on a table by a strange girl. She smirks at Azura as she barks orders at Mika, but then draws in the others letting them know the news. She stands there with a glare on her faces as she follows Azura every move. Ajay leans in close and whispers "Not all of us are quite so wild..." Mika turns to Ajay “She is hiding something I have a bad feeling about her.” She looks at Ajay with a smile “But I don’t trust you either… Monique Hapburn isn’t going to be an easy target actually He is going to be one of the hardest...”
She turns and notices Kayli glares. “Do you think you can handle that?” Suddenly the lights flickered and Chiffton began to speak. “Ramses…..” She thought and shakes her head. She had heard the brothers speak of him, but she only saw glimpses as they pasted each other when meeting with Brothers. Then she remembered something she had heard. She grabs Ajays arm “ He is an Earth Manipulater.”

"I'll be there in a few minutes, wait for me. You'll need something to take out the lights."
With that said in response to Ramses, Alanoth kept running down alleys towards the rebel hideout. Alanoth was still upset about being interrupted during a hunt, but attacking the rebels almost made up for it. He found the building across the street from the rebel hideout that Ramses said he would wait on, and climbed up to the roof.
Once on the roof and next to Ramses, he surveyed the area. There were no guards outside, however there was a light on in the main room. That meant they were having a meeting of some sort, perfect for an attack. The only source of electricity for the building was an independent generator, unguarded and vulnerable to Alanoth's own powers.
"You'll need to wait until I've cut the power," Alanoth said to Ramses while turning to him, "then move in and do what damage you can. Taking down the building is preferable, as many won't survive it. However, if your powers can't achieve that, then we kill the lights, and sneak in, and start killing as many as we can before back-up power kicks in."

“That works for me.” Ramses stood next to his recently arrived comrade. “Hold on a second then you can short the power and we can get to this, remember, just go for their grunts, thin their numbers and scare them, that’s what we did to our enemies back in Egypt, a mix of scare and murder tactics, I’ll take down the west section of the first floor and bring down the roof, many will survive.” Ramses lifted his hand and began to silently building a rock-bridge, stretching from the rooftop of the building that they were on to the rooftop of the rebel hide-out; his powers seemed to give of a crunching sound that was unnoticeable unless you had been around his powers for a long time. When the bridge was up, Ramses placed his hands on his chest, the crunching noise was still there and the sand began to swamp to Ramses’s chest. It moved up his arm and curled around his shoulders and face, leaving a helmet on his head made out of strong but flexible rock, he slowly moved his hands downward after his face and chest were covered, the armor was spiny and hard and it would take many gunshots to get through it. When his body and one of his arms had been covered, Ramses turned to the other arm, running his hand down in a wavy formation, Ramses crafted a huge blade that would penetrate the bodies and hearts of the enemy vampires, and if it didn’t kill them then the sand that would go inside their bodies would. Ramses finally finished and turned to his comrade. “Now I am ready…”
The armour looks like this, except sandy coloured and without the lashes.
07-27-2011, 01:47 PM
Azura leaned into Kayli "Git a guid warning frae him that howfur." got a good warning from him that how. She was glad to hear that Ramses was not on the assassin list. A little comfort helped the situation, speaking of situation even though she knew Ramses would do anything to keep her safe, avoiding a nasty wound would still be ideal. Not saying a word as there was little time Azura excused herself, running straight to her weapons quarters. Perfect time to least be caught up with all my repairs and fine tunings.n Opening her lockers hoping others follow in suit; strapping on her thigh her double blades, sword on her back then reaching for something that took her a long time to make just right.... Heart daggers, designed to pierce precisely into the heart no it may not kill but its the best spot to give on hell of a wound. Strapping the dagger belt on her hips, Azura appeared back to the others ready for this. Drawing her sword as soon as she felt Ramses's power hit the building her sixth sense reading right where he was crossing the stone bridge; west the only thing in her mind. "They're here....those tae th' wast wing tae watch themselves closely. Someone better scouk they maps noo unless huvin thaim used against th' hauf bloods is a guid thing" They're here....those to the west wing need to watch themselves closely... someone better hide those maps now unless having them used against the half bloods is a good thing. Resting the sword blade on her shoulder she disappeared into the air ready to fight.

Mika prepared for battle pulling out her sai’s placing them in her belt leaving the crossbow in then bag. Her faces was priceless almost excited by the thought of a battle. However, that wasn’t the reason she was excited. Mika flashes back to the old day serving by the brothers sides “Mika Send for Alanoth…. We have a clan we must take out before heading in for the kill,” Said the blond brother. Mika nods and send one of her man off to get him a couple minutes later they returned as Alanoth walked past her she couldn’t help but sense a something strange about him.
Mika snaps back to reality feeling the same as she had the day she meet the strange man. She runs over to the podium and grabs the maps and puts them in her bag like Azura ordered. If she was right then the whole group was in danger. She looks over at Ajay “listen you have to tell them to guard all the Power sources…If the lights go off where good as dead.” She then heads toward the weapons quarters of the building pulling out flash lights. She lets out a loud whistle trying to draw in their attention. “Listen you all need to grab flash lights and stay in your groups” she could feel the uncertainty in the room by her approach to control the situation, but she need their help and a bunch of dead rebels wasn’t going to help her cause. “I know you don’t trust me but please listen to me.” She throws Ajay a flashlight then heads out of the room she had warned them if they listened it would save a few. She walks pass Azura with a smirk on her faces, and over to Ajay “go to the backup generators…I’m going to the main source.”
She knew for a fact Ramses wasn’t alone the bothers always went for the most effected and with an Earth bender and Alanoth ability they were in for a real fight… On her way toward the west wing she could sense them coming close. “God I pray Ajay makes it the backup generators “she thought because it would only take a couple of minutes of darkness to destroy hundreds of rebels Mika had seen this first hand. If he wasn’t there to flip the switch on as soon as the light where gone well it would be catastrophic. As she makes her way to the wing she saw a window and glares out seeing the now armored Ramses making his way over the bridge, but she didn’t see his partner anywhere. She stares hard at the bridge focusing all her telekinesis on it suddenly the bridge starts to crumble a little.
07-27-2011, 06:56 PM
Allesandro had reached the front of the abandoned building. He had started to reach for the handle, but stopped abruptly. "Do I really want to open this door?" he asked, thinking it over. "It would be bad if I opened this door and was attacked in my state." His stomach growled, causing him to make his choice. He turned and walked away from the door. He held on to his stomach and walked deeper into the city. "Theres only one thing that I can do." he mumbled and walked as fast as he could into the city.
A minute or two later, he was at a water fountain. He drank as much water as he could. This was how he made through the week, along with anything he could eat. He sat down and leaned against the fountain, closing his eyes and thinking. "I didn't have to live like this last week, or even when my shop was burned." he said angrily. "So why now?" He sat for a minute, as if expecting someone to answer his question.
when he opened his eyes, he started to look around. What met sight was very odd. Standing on a roof were to people, one of them even dressed in armor. And leading from thatposition was a makeshift bridge leading to another roof. He rubbed his eyes. He really was seeing thing. When he moved his hands from his eyes, they were still there. "Vampires maybe?" he asked himself, knowing most, like him, had strange powers.

There was action inside of the building, the rebels had obviously seen or been alerted to the coming of both vampires and Ramses could sense a prominent power acting on his newly created stone bridge, knocking chunks off, it didn’t do much damage however as Ramses lifted his hand, replenishing it, still making his way over to the building quickly. His first foot touched the roof and pulled his body forward, he got down on one knee and pressed his hand that had not been turned into a blade slowly against the floor, creating soldiers out of sand and dirt and bringing them across the bridge in formation, 20 of them joined Ramses on top of the Rebel building before the hidden telekinetic energy destroyed his bridge, however, using what knowledge he had, Ramses managed to hold the bridge up, it was too weak to walk on, but still strong enough to bring down some of the roof, and Ramses knew exactly were to land it.
“I’ve scoped out the locations, there’s 3 different back-up generators, located here.” Alanoth pointed at one part of a map he’d taken from the base and laid on the bar table. “Here, and here.”
Ramses lifted the chunks of rock into the air and pushed them downwards with all his might, they smashed through the old roof an cascaded down onto the generators, destroying all but one.
“Do not fear, we will just have to kill as many as we can whilst we can.” Ramses turned to the other building were Alanoth stood and nodded his head, the power flickered off and Ramses and his troops jumped through one of the three holes in the roof. Ramses hit the ground, a young made vampire stare at him, trying to pinpoint who it was emerging through the roof, he didn’t look long enough before Ramses lopped off his head in one slice.
The battle had begun…
07-27-2011, 10:30 PM
Alanoth could feel the electricity from the generators practically breath as he manipulated it. He caused it to move, sway, and dance around in the generator like a live being. Eventually, the generator couldn't handle the stress and it exploded. He opened his eyes as sparks danced in his retinas, let the killing begin.
He jumped down from the building, landing nimbly on his feet. He drew his katanas, ready for half vamps, purebloods, and humans alike. He charged into the now completely dark building, and melded into the shadows. Now in his element, Alanoth was in complete control. He snuck up behind a group of five halfbloods and slit their throats with ease from a source they never saw. The blood pooled on the floor, and Alanoth moved on to find more kills.
07-28-2011, 05:45 AM
AJay didnt argue with Mike. She had more battle experience, and if he needed to be at a generator he would be. Taking the flashlight with him he moved out quickly. Getting to one of the backup generators he heard the roof smash, his generator hadnt been hit but after a minute it exploded from some invisible force. Hissing as the lights flicked off he clicked on his flashlight...he had to fix this thing.
Kayli was in the main room gun drawn. She had grabbed a few others just second before the lights flicked off. "You three stay near me." she said to the few she had grabbed. "I can shield us, just be prepared to do the fighting."
Taking a deep breath she activated hide hand. It was invisible but it would stop most attacks for a while. Unless someone flat out jumped on top of them they would be fairly safe. She would also sense any disturbance in the barrier if anything approached.
Back in the generator room AJay was using his fire abilities to sauder wires and fix glass. A few times he thought he heard something and disappeared, blending with the shadows. It wasnt much of a power but it did make him invisible. Continuing to work he finally thought he had it fixed. Taking a deep breath he flipped the switch to reactivate the generator. It poped, snapped, then fired up. The emergency lights slowly flickered on and everyone could see again...sort of. The lights gave off a dim light in the larger rooms and hallways but not much. It would take a minute for the generator to restart the main lighting system but it was restarting.
Before the light turned back on Chiffton had watched the battle begin. He knew exactly where Ramses and Alanoth were,what they were doing, almost what they were thinking...when the lights cut out he entered into his shadow walk. Everything within the darkness was now a clear vision to him. Even Alanoth...he might have thought he was one with the shadows but his aura stood out to the much older vampire. He was tracking both Alanoth and Ramses through the building. They were both killing and both getting closer to the meeting room. Perhaps it would be fun to mess with them both.
Appearing in the dark behind Ramses he said "Ramses, Whatever are you doing here? Looking to die?" it seemed like the voice came strait from the dark. Appearing behind where he knew Alanoth to be he simply stated "Your not so well hidden, I can still see you." Appearing in a different part of the building he chuckled to himself. Shadow walking could be fun. He would hear their responses through the shadows too and it was bound to bother them that they were not so well hidden. The emergency lights came on then, but there was still more then enough shadow for Chiffton to remain hidden...it didnt matter anyway. He was going to see how well these rebels could fight, and it was always fun to toy with the enemy a bit.
The vampires within her hide hand jumped when the lights came on. Even if dim, the light was almost comforting. Contrary to popular belief not all vampires could see in the dark, so light was needed. They all held weapons or a poise of some sorts. Kayli still held her gun. There was no telling what would happen next after all.
07-28-2011, 07:47 AM
The daggers that were thrown at Kasuka were easily caught or knocked asided. 'Assassin....with poor aim...didn't put enough arm behind their throws...and there was only one.....why did he leave?' The fact that the individual ran off into the darkness either meant they were flanking, trying a new approach, or left the area. "Well....Marianna....it seems as if they left..." Kasuka said as he smelled the handle of the blades that were thrown. 'I have you now....' He thought as he turned to face the young girl he was to protect, why? He was questioning the whole reason he was drawn to her, the only thing that came to his mind was Honika and her kind spirit. "Now...what do you say as we g....." he was cut off with images flooding his mind, things he never seen before. Dropping to his knees, he grabbed his head hoping the pictures would leave. Images of earth moving, darkness killing, blood everywhere, and dim light. '....I hope that wasn't....wasn't what Chiffton told me about....the new power I was to recieve due to age alone....'
The images were in such great detail as if painted by one of the greats from the past. The images of death within the shadows made Kasuka think of what happened here before Marianna and himself. Facing Marianna again, placing both hands on her shoulders, he said in a firm and caring voice to her. "Something is going down now, lots of death...and that is something neither of us what you to be around....I have to help them for it is the reason I'm in America....but you, you can either join me or lock yourself in the room you sleep in and turn on every light you have....light is very important, if you can't do that, then I suggest you find somewhere you can hide that has light everywhere and is not outside....I don't want you hurt, I won't be able to live with myself if I let someone like you die again..." He stood up and turned, and like a flash of light, he was off, following the scent of the assassin that visited him earlier.
As Kasuka neared the building, he saw faint light coming from it. '...back up power....not good....' Then up on the roof, a man on a bridge. '...you don't see that everyday.....that wasn't there yesterday either....' Stoping outside a door way, Kasuka once more did his mist-crystal lights through out the building. '...I may be a creature of the night, but I use to be one of light first...' As the building was now flooded with light, he took one step in to notice a head rolling down a flight of stairs. Knowing he was going after the more deadly of the two individuals attacking this complex, Kasuka brought Serenity, his katana, out to play. Walking around on the balls of his feet, hardly making a sound, he could hear people reacting to the little mist crystals that were glowing brightly.
As he walked around the lower levels of the complex, Kasuka came across the smell of the one that attacked him earlier, and in his deep ancient Japanese voice with more vampiric aggression, he shouted out. "Assassin....I know you are here....come out and fight me....fight with honor, or die like a coward!" He kept moving, following the smell, letting his lights show him the way covered with bodies of rebel vampires badly or moratly injured. "Assassin!" He bolted off once more, running up stairs to see a group of Rebels in a circle holding flashlights and guns. "Halt!" One demanded, "Who are you!" Kasuka replied firmly. "I was hired by Chiffton to help remove a threat....so aim your guns somewhere else or I will cut your hands off." All the Rebels stood down. "Now...if I was a smart Rebel, I would go and protect any generator that is producing electricty since I can't keep this light show going forever." With that said the Rebels were off. What he said was true, he had mastered his powers over mist, able to do things with it that would seem near impossible but if he made the whole building light up, he could only do for 30 more minutes at the most.
Now standing in that empty, wide open room, he called out once more, this time his voice was near demonic in nature, one more thing that came with Vampiric old age. "Assassin! I will not said it again...show your face...NOW!" He entered his Kogan-Ryuu basic sword stance, blade up over his head holding the blade just under where the blade and handle meet.
07-28-2011, 12:35 PM
Marianna wasn't sure what to do. She'd avoided the hastily thrown knives easily, and remained silent afterwards. Initially, she'd been downright scared; noone had ever tried to actually kill her before. Then she was worried, as something seemed to be happening to Kasuka, and it didn't seem pleasant. She was sure he hadn't been hit with one of the daggers (which were probably poisoned) because she had seen him deal with them. So what was the matter? She didn't know, but her panicked brain trying to come up with answers was interrupted when he spoke.
She had watched him leave silently, and she continued to stand there until she realised that she wasn't sure what to do. It had never been in Marianna's nature to fight. That was the only reason she'd done so little for the rebellion. But it also wasn't in her nature to stand by and hide when she knew that people were suffering. That was why her stay with her last master had been so torturous for her; why she'd eventually given in and run away.
Her last master had been a vicious pureblood, who enjoyed torturing his meals out of innocent humans that he had kidnapped. Marianna had stepped in every time, finding some excuse, any excuse, to get him away from his prey. She'd done everything she could to prevent them from suffering. She'd paid for it every time... And eventually she couldn't handle it anymore. Though she knew he would continue to torture people, she ran away. She had hoped to be able to help the resistance put an end to vampires like him, but she had quickly realised that she wasn't a fighter. She couldn't kill someone, even someone as hideous inside as that man had been...
Marianna snapped herself out of it. She already knew that she wouldn't sit back and hide. But if she followed Kasuka, she was pretty sure he would do anything to protect her, and as such be distracted and probably more vulnerable. She wasn't entirely sure why he was already so protective of her, but she had gathered that it had to do with someone he had known in his past. Someone who had died. So she couldn't stay, she couldn't go... But he didn't have to know. In the midst of a fight, there was a chance he wouldn't notice her presence if she didn't get to close. She could check out what was going on, and see if there was anyone she could help. He'd said there was lots of death... Well, she would do what she could for those who hadn't yet succumbed. It was all she could do.
Marianna followed Kasuka's path quickly and easily, opting to do so as a cat for stealth and speed. She gave herself only a second to be horrified when she realised it was the rebel safehouse under attack, and immediately went about her own goals. She used one of the lesser used entrances, smiling as she noticed Kasuka's work lighting up the place. Those crystals were so pretty... She then went to work, doing whatever she could to help.
07-28-2011, 03:59 PM
Azura was focusing on the stone soldiers finding it very different to be destroying the things that have served to protect her for so long. It didn't feel right but the slautering that was taking place wasn't justified as much either....
Using her blade to slash their heads as they closed in light crystals started to flood the room she was in. Knowing reinforcments had arrived she smiled using her mind to send a thought of thanks to their creator. Glad she had a meal before hand otherwise her thirst for the fight would be uncontroled. Cursing under her own breath " Ramses this isnae richt huvin me murdurr yer ain creations!" Ramses this isn't right having me kill your own creations!" Stabbing through the last soldier blade drawing across its chest splitting in two her rage blinded her to the fact that her arm was cut badly...nothing a little blood and rest wouldn't solve anyhow.
Running down the hallway she saw a pair of eyes that could only belong to one being. "
Marianna! Bless yer hert fur th' courage tae hulp bit we cannae shoogly important members! come oan 'n' keep close....the generators huv tae kick in sometime soon!" Marianna! Bless your heart for the courage to help but we can't loose important members! Come on and keep close....the generators have to kick in sometime soon!" Azura then became silent....walking with sword at the ready for anything that could spring up around the corners...she knew Ramses was close. And others hunting him not far behind either....hoping she wouldn't have to make a split decision on what side she'd help, not tonight.
07-28-2011, 04:21 PM
AJay wanted to go help the fight, but he knew that would leave the generator unprotected. He had already fixed it once but he didnt know if he could do it again. He listened, hearing the occassional scream of someone dying or fighting. Then there were footsteps...he got ready to fight until a group of rebels showed up.
"We were told to come protect whatever generator was working, this is the only one running. Its going to take a few more minutes for the acrtual lights to come on with just one generator." one of them said. AJay smiled.
"Then Keep it safe." and he took off back into the building. It was filled with light from some odd form of crystals and the emergency lights. Atleast it wasnt dark now. Slipping silently through the hallways AJay came accross quite a few dead bodies. That didnt phase him. What surprised him was when he saw a...well a thing made from sand and earth. It was about to kill a rather beaten looking rebel so AJay threw a fire blast at it. The creation fought against it but AJay held the heat until the sand turned to glass. Once strong kick and he shattered it. Now who had made these things?
Once the crystals lit up the building Kayli grinned "Well since you can see now Im leaving you guys to defend yourselves. Stick together." she told her little band before taking off. She was incredibly fast, could search most buildings in ten minutes. This one was a little bigger and she wasnt running full speed in order to keep an eye on her surroundings. She had wrapped herself in her hide hand now for protection but a solid sword swipe would shatter it and she knew it. She was just trying to find someone...anyone. Be they living rebels or the enemy.

Mika is knocked down hard as a stone comes crashing throw the roof barely missing her. She raise up to see what had happen, but in only a matter of minutes after the stone fell the light being to flicker before shutting off . She hopes to her feet and switch on the flashlight shining it around the room making sure to hit all the shadow areas. The building was completely engulfed in darkness now. She can hear a commotion going on just a few feet away she heads toward the door sling it open to see what had happen, and to make sure everyone was still together. The corridor was in complete darkness as well she knew then that they had been breached. She begins running down the narrow hallway toward the stairs, but slips and slams hard into the floor hitting her head and sending her flashlight rolling across the room. She lays there stun by the hit, she raise her hand to place it on her head, but is taken by surprise when she notices what the glow of the flash light showed. Mika sits up quick and looks down at the pool of blood that she had feel in which now was covering her also. “It’s started… Come on Ajay “she stands back up and continues making her way back to the others and Ajay. She could hear the panic of the others as she makes her way throw the dark, her sense where weaken by the powerful scent of the blood in which covered most of her body leaving her open to attacks.
She shifts into her hell hound state and begins to race throw the building noticing all the bodies and blood. She comes down the hall way in full speed, but sees a man fixing to kill one of the rebels. She let out a massive growl and leaps on to the soldier’s back biting his throat and ripping it out. The man falls to the floor becoming dirt once again. Mika shifts back and looks at the man who had been attack. “Are you seriously hurt?” the man shocked and scared shook his head. Mika reached for the door that was behind the man and push it open shining her flash light inside the dark empty room. She pulls the man inside and leans him up against the wall behind some file cabinets. “Stay here and don’t move… and try not to breathe.” She turns off the flash light and hands it to him before she continues. The sand soldiers where easy to kill, but that’s not what they need to worry about Ramses and Alanoth were lose in the building destroying everything in sight.
She smiled as the lights flickered “Ajay got the power working,” she said with a smile, but is grabbed from behind before she could act and is slammed hard into the wall she desperately reaches for her sai as he solider strangles her. She grabs the sai and stabs it in throat then makes a slicing motion. The solider fads and Mika hits the floor coughing trying to catch her breath her neck was bruised from the pressure of the creature. She slowly stands up in time to see strange looking light crystals. She makes her way down the stairs in time to see Ajay killing one of the creatures. “I see you listen well… you might of just saves us,” she smiles at him, but something catches her attention there was something in the shadows. “Alanoth….” She mumbles under her breath.
Death of Korzan

With his troops dropping like flies, Ramses pressed the defense, he could feel his loves presence nearby, but he could also feel many other powerful foes, two of them, not counting Azura, were pureblood. CHINK. Ramses’s sword arm collided with the sword of another enemy, this one was human, his face trembling but still portraying the courage that he held dear to him, he wanted this more than anything, but Ramses would deny him. “You are brave.” Ramses chopped off his arm, the human fell and screamed. “But foolish.” The sword-arm buried itself deep in his chest, twisting around to make sure the human was dead, and then Ramses drew it out. Ramses walked out of the room into an empty corridor and turned to face the doorway he had just walked through, the walls were smeared with crimson life liquid and bodies decorated the ground, all were victims of Ramses and Deaths inescapable embrace, Ramses crushed his hands downwards to the floor and the floor of the hallway bent downwards, blocking off the pathway for anyone who would try to flank him, however, unbeknownst to him, he was only a stone’s throw around the corner away from Kayli…

As the ligths flickered on, Alanoth cursed his not expecting this. He stepped out of the shadow realm just in time to avoid major pain in the form of a migrain, but what happened next made him wish that he had just been distintegrated. He heard something not far down the hall behind him because of his hightened senses due to being alert, but it wasn't something he expected to hear.
"Alanoth.." a mumble behind him said. The voice of that mumble, brought back memories.
It was dark, there was a flash of silver and a sai saved Alanoth's life...A flash of metal, and Alanoth saved a girl's life from four vamps ganging up on her...Standing back to back, Alanoth and this same girl fought over a hundred enemies, all armed to the teeth and with greater skill than the both of them combined.
Alanoth turned around slowly, katanas ready in case it was a trick. Instead, there stood Mika, his old comrade and friend. She stood there, sai at the ready, and just as surprised to see him as Alanoth was to see her.
"Well, well," Alanoth marveled as he took a step back and took a stance in case more rebels shwed up, "what do I have here? A pureblood, running around with the rebels, the famed Mika, no less. Just what, would bring a pureblood, the enemy of the rebels, here to the rebel main hideout?"
07-28-2011, 10:07 PM
Allesandro had jumped up soon as he saw the lights go out. He knew something wrong was going on, but hesitated. "Id be useless." he said, staring down. "But a coward if I did nothing!" He set his bag behind some bushes and pulled out some gloves. "Time to fight." he said.
He ran to the front entrence and pulled it with all his might. Locked. "My luck..." he mumbled and kicked at it. Still wouldnt budge. It was a solid door, not budging an inch unless unlocked. "Here goes nothing." he said. He took his gloves of and placed his hand on the handle. His hands turned red and the handle started to melt. He pressed forward until there was a hole leading to the other side. With nothing holding it in place, he pulled the lock out and pushed the door open.
He could hear sonething going on throughout the building. Luckily, this room was vacant, and had a little light in it from another room. He started to head toward. Suddenly, there was a voice behind him. "Hey! Idebtify yourself!" There was a small group of rebels coming after him. At this moment, he realised he couldn't fight. So he did the most reasonable thing to him. He ran through an empty looking hallway, the group of rebels on his heels.
07-28-2011, 11:20 PM
"Azura!" Marianna had physically jumped at the woman's voice, pulled away from what she was doing. She was crouched by the body of one of her fellow rebels. Just a human... She couldnt even bring herself to drink his blood, though she was starving. She pressed his eyelids closed with her fingers, saying goodbye with her mind. She had spent his last moments comforting him. She knew he couldn't be saved, and so had he. And so Marianna had done the only thing she could, she'd comforted. Her mind was much older than her body, and he had realized that. He had clung to her mental voice, understanding that she was more than a child. He had been able to accept her comfort, because he had known that she knew of death. Sometimes Marianna hated her telepathy, because people could easily use it against her. She couldn't control what people said to her, and she couldnt use her power to find out any kind of information. But when she could sooth the dying... She wouldn't trade her power for any in the world. She stood an caught up to Azura, who'd already begun her journey down the hall. And she did stay close, one hand wrapped around Beta-Wolf's hilt, she'd pulled out the blade almost unconciously.
"It's not like I was here to fight..." Marianna said quietly. "But I couldn't sit out and not do anything to help..." And I'm not an important member... She added to herself miserably. But it wouldn't do Azura any good to listen to Marianna's self-depreceating whining, so she kept her mouth shut on that part. She could hear footsteps and shouting all over the place, echoing down the halls. She picked up on so many sounds, a lot of them difficult for even a vampire to hear, that all the noise was making her head spin. She couldn't tell where any of it was coming from, and for the first time in a long time she disliked being a cat.
"There stuff going on everywhere... I don't suppose you have some plan to help stop the fighting?"
07-28-2011, 11:45 PM
It had been years since she had seen his faces, She could remember it like yesterday training alongside him as her father taught them to become brave warriors for their Rulers. The battles they fought in together, but to meet again in this circumstance was strange. “ Well what can I say I guess I finally got tired of watching everyone I love die around me over something so stupid as the different in a pure or made…. I lost my family because of this mess something you should know a little about and even those I stayed true to them I was offered no graduated just a demotion because I was too weak.”
She made her way closer to Alanoth “So tell me my old friend what are you doing here… wait let me rephrase yes I might be a pureblood but my dear you are only half...” She had always accepted him even with his heritage of only being a half blood… “My father took you in Alanoth he treated you as if you where his, me and my sisters accepted you… and there all dead now. She pauses and looks down at the ground and puts her sai’s away. “I want revenge Alanoth” she looks up as a tear of blood runs down her check. Suddenly satanic voices can be heard calling out Alanoth. Mika notices the lights starting to grow brighter, and knew it wouldn’t be long tell the light would be full bright and she didn’t need the unwanted attention of any unwanted eyes. She looks at him one last time before they hear a strange voice calling for Alanoth "Assassin! I will not said it again...show your face...NOW!" echoed throughout the halls.
07-29-2011, 01:03 AM
Kasuka was growing more and more impatient as he stood there waiting when the person he was after could be killing more and more confused rebels. '...I...am....not....going....to....WAIT' he thought as he finally caught the scent of the one he was after, and a faint smell of Marianna which got him to pause. ".....please let that be my mind playing with me...." he whispered to himself. He had to push that last bit to the back of his mind, he couldn't let her pressence alter what he was doing here, yet he made a promise to her aswell. He turned to face the direction the assassin's scent was coming from as something within Kasuka told him that Marianna was with good company and be protected. That took a very heavy weight of his shoulders as he relaxed, his eyes turning bloody red with the ease. He growled as he began to walk heavly and fast towards the opening in the room that might lead to the person he wanted to now kill.
He walked out the room he was in, sword still over his right should and behind his head as he held Serenity in his right hand. '...If you won't come to me....I'll come to you...' As he came to a split in the hall, one hall went right and the other left. He paused as he could smell that the assassin wasn't alone, and against his better nature, knowing it could be a two against him fight or more against him, he marched on. '...who cares....' He turned the corner and thanks to luck he was facing the back of the person that smelled like the assassin that visited him and Marianna earlier that night. Before the person Kasuka was after he saw a female, he could usually gage how powerful she could/would be but she wasn't his target right now so his eyes glared at the one with their back to Kasuka. His eyes were nearly covered with the blood red color that only happens when Kasuka is out for blood. Speaking in the same near demonic voice with a hint of his anceint Japanese accent, he addressed the person infront of him. "Nowhere to run now....assassin!"
As Kasuka burned a hole thou the back of his targets head with his eyes, the mist-crystals began to shift their color from clear white light to a deep red, still lighting up every corner in the factory complex. Kasuka turned a little to aim his left shoulder at the assassin, spreading his feet a little letting the light gleam making Kasuka's tattoos look satanic in nature, he let out his challenge. "I believe in one on one fights, so I am alone...." His mind and body covered with blood-lust yet keeping his calm, using his anger to fuel his want to kill the person before him, he continued to speak. "....you wish to harm the one that I promised to protect, then I will kill you!"
07-29-2011, 03:31 AM
Alanoth sighed, he should have expected the big man to come after him. As Alanoth drew his katanas, he wished that the man had never been near the girl. He hadn't had actual intenion of hurting her, just getting whatever information she had from her. The man was obviously overprotecive of her, possibly a relative of some sort. He turned to the man, planning to act on the vamp speaking rather than attacking.
"I can tell that you are an honorable man. You were more than likely trained as a samurai, and I can respect that. Of any enemies I have ever faced, the few samurai I have fought were always noble, honorable, and fierce fighters. Since you are hear alone, I assume you are so full of protection for the girl and rage at my attempt to ask her for information, you won't let me explain what I was doing tracking Marianna down. So, let's get this over with quickly."
Alanoth took a defensive stance he had used many times, but hadn't used since the last battle that he and Mika fought in. He looked at Mika, and swore to himself that if he survived this, he would find a way to make it up to Mika for everything she had lost. Looking back to the vamp with the satanic tattoos and voice, he spoke briefly to Mika.
"I can tell by his scent that he's tough, however, he'd never let me live it down if I let you help me fight. If I survive, I'm going to let him live, only because he's not a rebel. If I don't...I leave what's left of my father's fortune and estates which he left to me to you should I fall in battle."
07-29-2011, 03:50 AM
"Don't worry about it Marianna...just stick close and we'll get through this." flashing her a quick grin showing her love to fight. Sheathing her bloodied sword on her back she grabbed her other weapon on her right thigh pumping it down it extends to full length...double blade would be better right now.... taking off her heart daggers she quickly put the around the young vamp's waist. "Juist throw thae it doesn't maiter braun or deid accuratcy..throw thaim at th' enemy 'n' it wull thirl thair hert true...just in case yi''ll need them." "Just throw these it doesn't matter strength or dead accuratcy..throw them at the enemy and it will pierce their heart true...just in case you need them." Giving a reassuring wink she took her hand and lead them around using her senses to avoid Ramses the best that she could.
Rounding a corner she about slashed dead a strange male her sixth sense looking him over decided he was on their side.Luck is oan yer side tonight...stick close 'n' efter this is dane we'll see tae it ye baith git blood." "Luck is on your side tonight...stick close and after this is done we'll see to it you both get blood." Grabbing Allesandro's shirt pulling him behind Marriana slamming him against the wall before they continued.
Ramses my love leave...you've done enough damage...well meet at my place at dawn to talk peacefully... Sending the words in a new breeze watching it find the one within the words Azura kept going, slowly....they had to regroup and fast.
07-29-2011, 04:17 AM
07-29-2011, 05:06 AM
Mika stands there behind Alanoth trying to figure out what was going on, everything was so confusing screams could be heard blood covered the floor, but the only thing that scared her was the thought of losing someone else, suddenly she is snapped back to reality in time to hear. “If I don't...I leave what's left of my father's fortune and estates which he left to me to you should I fall in battle." Mika looks up with rage in her eyes “Alanoth how dear you… My father didn’t train a quitter.”
She pulls out her sais and walks up to his side. “I’m not going to leave you like this…not again. If that means fight a battle because of you holier-than-thou attitude then I will. Mika stands alongside Alanoth and trys not to smile. It had been a long time sinces they had been in a fight together. “Listen stranger I don’t know what this is about I do know Alanoth he would never hurt a child... I’m pretty sure he went about it the wrong way, but this can all be prevented.” Mika stares into Kasuka eyes as she tries her hardest to push him, but he was strong a lot stronger then what she had dealt with before.
07-29-2011, 05:46 PM
Allesandro winced in pain when he hit the wall. He stayed there for a second, wondered what the woman said, brushed his shirt off, and then followed. He walked slower than the other two, only running on the thought of being caught in a predicament like the last one without help. He noticed that there had been plenty signs that some fighting had been going on. Blood, bodies, and rubble being the main signs. He picked up and odd piece of metal and used it as a walking stick. With it, his pace quickened and he was able to catch up. He put his hand against his scar in his neck, a sign that he was deep in thought.
He wondered what was going on. He knew there were those two attacking the building, but they couldn't have caused this much destruction alone. Could they? Were they both strong enough to cause this much devistatioh. He pondered this for a bit, then his stomach growled. Completely losing his train of thought, he took his hand off his neck and decided to question to question the woman who slammed him against the wall.
"Thanks for helping me." he said to the woman. "I dont think I could have went on much longer, with those people chasing me. But im wondering, whats going on here? And who are you two?"
07-29-2011, 09:55 PM
The expression on Marianna's face could only be described as startled, once Azura had given her the daggers. Two different kind of weapons in two nights... Marianna could definitely say that she wasn't entirely happy about it. But she was starting to think that maybe it was necessary... At least knowing how to fight. She just had to look around and see the dying, and know that she was even more vulnerable than they were. It would take almost nothing to kill her, and she knew it.
By the time the man Azura had grabbed caught up to them, Marianna was almost in tears. There were dozens of things flying through her mind, but she knew what she had to do. She ignored the man's questions, and merely mumbled an apology, the words I'm sorry... whispering through Azura's mind as Marianna sped off. She left the building, and just kept running and running. Kasuka forgive me... She thought to herself, unsure if the words would reach him. She wasn't thinking straight...
"I won't run away again... I won't." She whimpered to herself, though her legs kept moving. She had soon left Yellville, and was wandering into the wilderness. She was heading away from civilization, into the swampy environment that made up most of Southern America. She would go back. She knew that she wouldn't leave Yellville for long. She knew that at least one person would be worried about her; Kasuka. For once, she didn't find it very self-concious of herself to think that someone would be worried. She'd seen how protective he already was. Yes, she'd go back.
But first, she had some things she needed to do.
07-30-2011, 02:43 AM
Kayli felt the strong presence hit her like a brick as she rounded a corner. She was not sensetive to the powers around her like her brother. Some humanlikes were like that. She couldnt tell vampires apart either...had no clue who was made half or pure unless someone told her. So for her to feel his presence he was very very strong.
She also saw the sword in his hand within a second and sped up running around him, spinning, then firing at him with her gun. She knew he had probably seen her but she was still one of the fastest rebels in the building. She could dodge the sword if her hide hand could block any elemental attacks thrown at her.
In the hallway AJay was glad to find Mika. What happened next shocked him though...Apparently Mika knew one of the attackers, not only that but was good friends with him. Then Kasuka showed up, clearly looking to go after this Alanoth fellow, and Mika was willing to fight against Kasuka. He wasnt going to let that happen though...its like they had forgotten he was there actually. If Kasuka wanted a one on one fight with Alanoth AJay would just have to fight Mika....or atleast distract her...he didnt really wanna fight her. They had just been made partners afterall. Still...
Throwing a small fireball towards Mika AJay got her attention. "If Kasuka wants a one on one fight thats only fair now isnt it? So if your going to fight along side the guy whos been killing my friends you can fight with me." he said.
Death of Korzan
07-30-2011, 02:59 AM
The fast vampire flew around Ramses, too fast for him to successfully strike it with his blade, a few gunshots came from the entity but they simply ricocheted off of his earthen armor, the chunks that flew off were small and not vital, crouching down and avoiding a few of the shots, Ramses punched through the floorboards, cracking them, then he stabbed his blade into the soil. The being still flew around him and the oxygen around Ramses began to slowly thin, making the air thick and difficult to breathe in. Ramses pried the broken panels of wood away, revealing the dirt, standing up and lifting his one hand, now struggling for breath, Ramses began to use what power he had to counter this obvious enemy who was trying to kill him, the gunshots still continued to make impact with his armor, creating small chinks in it. Ramses opened up his palm and a stream of earth began to approach it, he then took his sword-arm and hovered it over his hand, the earth and sand mix seemingly melted away, only leaving the armor the coated the rest of his body. Using his newly freed hand, Ramses placed it at the same level as his other hand that was slowly extracting dirt and sand from underneath the floor. The oxygen was low now, strangulation tugging at Ramses’s neck, taunting him, pulling him slowly away from reality and into his mind. Ramses flicked his wrist and held it in the air facing his fingers towards to roof in a noble motion, suddenly, around the speeding figure a huge circular wall made out of sand seemed to explode through the ground, outlining the pathway that the entity was making. Using his other hand, Ramses swung it wildly and crafted more walls that connected to the large circular one, not aimed as an attack but to simply slow the figure down. Using the last parts of sand and other sediments in his grasp, Ramses reformed his blade. His breath was hastened now, stinging his neck like the tears that stung at his eyes.
07-30-2011, 03:24 AM
The mist crystals Kasuka made began to glow wildly, dripping little dropplets that could be mistaken for blood, all that was due to a female that walked up and stood beside his target. '...two on one....' He didn't care just as long as Marianna was no longer going to be harmed by this individual again. He took a few steps forward to see just outside his focus. He didn't know who the person was but they knew who Kasuka was, and seemed to back him aswell. His blood hungry eyes never left his targets face, glaring though him as if Kasuka was a wild beast deciding what juice pieace of meat they were going to rip off first.
With his voice all apsent of his accent and now pure vampiric and evil in sound, Kasuka spoke his words of warning to the female, eyes still fixed on the assassin. "...I have no problem killing a female....either stand down or you and your sai's will lay broken and destroyed where you stand!" As he spoke, Kasuka turned to face the two before him, bring his sword infront of him, blade pointed out, he used two fingers to grab and tightly hold the end of katana. Begining to push the sword out with is right hand yet holding firmly with his left, the sword began to make a vibrant ringing sound as it began to show how much tension Kasuka was putting on it. As the sound rang through the near by halls, he turned to allow his right shoulder to face the two that wished to fight....This was his Nagare Boshi stance or Shooting Star stance. This was the game ender for Kasuka, one swing of his sword under that amount of tention allowed for great speed in the attack and extreme cutting power, a one hit kill attack.
"ANSWER WOMEN! LEAVE US OR DIE!" The mist-crystals still looking as if they were bleeding. Kasuka lost all feeling for everything but this moment until a tingle touched his brain, almost like a faint whisper. Not moving from his stance he whispered ''...Marianna...please be safe....I will find you soon..."
07-30-2011, 03:42 AM
Mika stands there alongside Alanoth with her sai’s drawn ready just waiting for the man to attack, she had tried to push him but he was a tough one and he was fighting it so hard that it was actually weaken Mika. She had never had a component as strong as him so she knew that if Alanoth did fight him he was going to need help.
Suddenly, she is caught off guard by the fire ball that comes handing a couple inches away from her. "If Kasuka wants a one on one fight that’s only fair now isn’t it? So if you’re going to fight alongside the guy who’s been killing my friends you can fight with me." she doesn’t take her eyes off the stranger that’s was threating her friend. “Ajay please just leave….this has nothing to do with you… yes he might be against us but how can I watch the only family I have left die. She turns slightly to look over her shoulder toward at Ajay. “You can end this since you know this man so well you can call him off and let Alanoth leave if not….i will destroy him and you if I have too.”
The thought had sadden Mika she had come so far to join the rebellion to seek her revenge to end the brother’s rule, but now found herself still being treat like a puppet in there sick side show, but she couldn’t just stand by and see one of her friends be slaughtered. The whole dilemma was driving her crazy she knew what she had to do even if it meant giving up everything. She steps away from Alanoth side and made her way toward Ajay sais ready for a fight. “Ajay you are a great warrior I can sense that, but a very stupid one,” a tear runs down her cheek but she wipes it away. “Well you want to fight me… then fight me” Mika knew the idea was stupid she had already been weakened but she couldn’t show weakness in front of Alanoth.
She really liked Ajay he was sweet and so nice whenever one was so quick to judge she looked into his eyes and couldn’t help but feel she had let him down. “ I’m sorry Ajay….”
07-30-2011, 04:06 AM
"We were recently attacked, they are trying to bring our rebel force and headquarters down for good...and I'm Azura...lead weapons expert here. Speaking of such..." Noticing the crystals dripping blood. "We best be getting over there fast for some more fire power..I got a nasty of a one I've been dying to use." When Marriana rushed off she tried to snatch her back..half tempted to call for her but that would give away their position.... Vowing to help Kasuka find her if needed as she was important and needed to be protected......hoping the girl would at least keep both weapons on her at all times.
Grabbing the wrist of the guy she kept them moving foward determined not to lose him as well for whatever reason as she smiled seeing the welcoming doors of the weapons wing.... Slipping inside keeping the door opened to hear anything Azura unlocked the main weapons locker sliding the chained door up and over head .....a very device was looking at her...something new taking years to enhance it kept charged for months just in case.....emitting throughout the building a blinding light that would weaken those enemies that were more sensitive....in this case at least give them some light for only 5 minutes no more.
"If your more sensitive to light then I suggest putting some glasses on" tossing him a pair just in case as she did as well there was no time to warn the others.....it was now or never at this point. "Alright hold on to your balls here we go!" Grinning big she switched on the device as it hummed to life....her fingers crossed she had the configurations just right a green light started to blink. Soon as the green light illuminated a large button she gave a nod and slammed down hard on it...the entire headquarters illuminated in a bright light flooding every corner. "YES!!!!"
07-30-2011, 04:46 PM
Allesandro was completely shocked. He didn't even fight back when Azura grabbed his wrist and pulled him towards some doors. "The entire time..." he muttered when inside. He had been in the rebels base all along. He caught the the sunglasses and put them on. When the light flashed on, he noticed the weapons. Some of them silver. He backed away from some that were right next to him. He was now in a dangerous position. In a weapon room with the rebel weapon expert.
Then he put his hand on his scar and started thinking. At first, he thought about attacking her. He could grab one of the weapons and get her while she wasn't looking. Or he could use his power to blow up the machine and make a run for it. So many thoughts of deceit ran through his head, he was nearly disgusted with himself. Then, he realized why he couldn't do any of that.
He moved his hand off his scar and turned to Azura. It took all his self control to stay calm. "I must say thank you again for helping me." he said. If not for her, that group of rebels, as he assumed, would have killed him. Like it or not, Allesandro was in the debt of this rebel. He went and leaned against the door frame. He was so worn down, he only stood for a second and then had to sit down. He layed the piece of metal on the floor in front of him. He smiled. What a predicament he was in.
07-31-2011, 03:48 AM
Kayli was slowed down quite a bit. Then she hit a wall...litterally. She hadnt seen one and smacked into it full force, the only thing that kept her from being injured was her hide hand acting as a shield and bouncing her off in a protective little bubble. Catching her breath she looked at the earth bender. So he had a sword and elemental attacks. Lovely....
"Well...this looks like it could be fun...your scarier then hell. Guess its a good thing I dont scare easy." she smirk stood up and readied herself. Obviously running wouldnt help...she didnt want to bounce off a wall again. "Lets play sand boy."
She upped the strength behind her hidehand...no earth attacks were gonna get through it, atleast for a while. Now she just had to figure out how to keep from getting slashed in two.
AJay stared at Mika with a sad look in his eyes. "I understand that better then you know Mika. My family was killed protecting me...but this guy is one of the men killing my new family. I cant let him leave." then he smiled a sad smile "And dont mistake bravery for stupidity..."
Taking a deep breath he widened his stance a bit. AJay liked martial arts, it meshed well with his powers. He still didnt want to do this. "If you stand down I will...I wont tell a soul what happened here...last chance."

Alanoth looked from Mika's attacker to the samurai fighter who swore to kill Alanoth. Emotions and thoughts collided viciously inside of Alanoth, and he had no idea what to do. He wanted to help Mika after so long, but at the same time the samurai was more of an obstacle out than Mika's attacker. What should he do? After a moment's contemplation, he sighed and looked to Mika before speaking.
"I'm sorry to fail you again, Mika. You will always be like a sister to me, but now I must act as if I lie. I cannot risk failing my mission, so I must take my leaveby fighting the big guy. You'll have to fight that rebel on your own, and I believe this will be farewell."
Alanoth quickly pulled out a poison bottle he had prepared earlier, and he coated his katanas' blades with the poison that was deadly to any vampire-made, half, or pureblood. He took an offensive stance, and charged at the samurai with both speed and a guard readied for any parries or counterattacks. His goal was to get past the warrior, not defeat him. Sometimes, living to fight another day dishonorably is better in the long run than fighting and losing honorably.

As Kasuka's katana seemed as it couldn't take any more strain, and the Assassin made his advance with his coated swords, a giant flash whited everything in sight as if someone shoved giant flashlights into Kasuka's eyes. '...thought I'd have to make a distraction myself but this is over kill...' Deciding to make this his time to act, he jumped on it, throwing two of the daggers the assassin threw at him and Marianna earlier that night as straight to assassin as he could while diving at him at the same time, letting go of his katana he named Serenity at the same time. The ringing the sword made was now silent, the swing extremly fast. As Kasuka let his swing go, he also let his grip on the sword loosen, allowing the handle to slide out of his hand until he gripped the very end of the handle allowing for a few more inchs of sharp metalic death to be heading right for the enemy.
If he connected or not was unknown to Kasuka at the moment his sword went through its full motion, if he hit the female was unknown aswell since he aimed for both vampires. All he heard was a slient slash, it could have come from him, the female, the rebel that showed to help Kasuka, the assassin, or from another individual being attacked by someone else. '.....someone got hit.....I know it....' He stood up, thinking he hit his target and placed Serenity back into its sheath. As he turned around, another tingle fell onto Kasuka, this was about Marianna, telling him to go after her. It took him several seconds to surpass his rage for the assassin to allow Kasuka to go after her. "Assassin....if you lived, our fight isn't over.....Before I die, I will stand over your corpse....so you better stay alive until that moment...." He said in a stirn voice as he turned and broke a massive hole out of the wall, allowing Kasuka out of the factory complex. Once he hit the ground, he was off, running quickly as he could towards the scent of Marianna. '.....Stay alive until I find you Marianna.....and Chiffton...I'll deal with you on my own later after I kill the assassin....'

Ramses chuckled to himself, a throaty noise when hidden behind the armor. “Now there’s no need for calling names.” Ramses taunted. “I have a name, just like you, you can call me.” Ramses swallowed his saliva and halted a moment, sensing a huge outburst of power echoing off of the walls of the building. It was a husk now. The power seemed to shoot around the stone arena Ramses had created. “Ramses.” The name rolled off of his tongue and he said it as a show of strength, the name stung fear into those that knew of his presence, and this girl would know of him after this battle, whether she would get away, defeat him or lay dead, with her head lying next to her in a puddle of blood. “You know, you’re not the first shield-bender I’ve faced…” Ramses lifted and threw a small handful of sand towards the girl, it seemed to brush off and fall to the ground around her, not making physical contact. “Come on…” Ramses hissed. “You didn’t think I didn’t notice when you hit that wall?” Ramses began running his sword along the ground, sharpening it against the earth. “There’s no way you wouldn’t have been injured, that’s solid rock…no, you’re shielded.” Ramses began to pace, his sword still running along the earth, but now it was making an odd screeching noise. “I fought a shielded vampire once, he shielded about 100 troops of theirs. French, of course.” Ramses sighed. “He got away from me and your friend, Azura, my love.” Ramses enjoyed the look on the female vampires face when Ramses said this, savoring it before he lowly shifted into a battle stance. “I heard he works with Fredrick Le’ponze.” Ramses shoves his hand into his armor and pulls out a small slip of paper, a copy of the spreadsheet. “It’s a shame that I’ve already killed Joey and Tyrell, and these ones.” Pointing at a pair of female vampires going after a German vampire. “In fact, I have to thank them, they managed to swipe and copy the spreadsheet and now I have a copy.” Ramses smiled, due to the armor it created a horrible grating noise. “I’ve killed just about three quarters of this list, and now I have to kill the rest.” Ramses suddenly disappeared in a huge burst of charge energy, he began to dart around the arena around Kayli, knowing that she’d be able to catch up to him easily, he had seen her speed. Jumping down behind her silently, Ramses whispered in her ear. “Come, show me your strength.” Then he pushed her and began to jump around the walls again.
'I'm afraid I'm going to have to turn you down Azura, afterwards my love, when this is all done, you can return to The Fingertip, we will be together again...'

Mika was ready to do whatever it took to make sure Alanoth was unharmed, smiling a little back at Ajay he was such a sweet boy and she never had wanted to fight the only one who had shown her respect and trust but she still prepares to fight him until Alanoth spoke. "I'm sorry to fail you again, Mika. You will always be like a sister to me, but now I must act as if I lie. I cannot risk failing my mission, so I must take my leave by fighting the big guy. You'll have to fight that rebel on your own, and I believe this will be farewell." Mika looks over her shoulder toward Alanoth keep Ajay in her vision “What do you mean? I….I just found you. Why would you leave? “
Her eyes were locked into Ajay’s not realizing that the aslant and Alanoth were about to fight, but before she could approach Ajay a sharp pain shoot up her back, as the aslant sward dragged across her back. She was in shock that the strange man had attacked her while she was occupied with Ajay. She turns around in time to see the man disappear, and that Alanoth hadn’t seen the contact the sword had made with her pale skin plus, the dim light and her black corset top she wore also made it hard to tell. She turns to Alanoth and grabs his faces and pulls him close kissing his forehead. “Alanoth go….leave now don’t worry about me… I’ve always been a better fighter then you anyway.” She pulls away with a smile on her faces then made her way toward Ajay. She would hold him off letting Alanoth escaped, however she worried that Ajay knew she was hurt, and if he would use it against her.
She loved Alanoth dearly, but she couldn’t bear having her knew friend hurt when it wasn’t needed. She kept her stances letting him diapered into the darkness. She could feel the blood running down her back making her weaker by the moment but she wasn’t going to let her pain show no matter what.

Azura raised her eyebrow at Allesandro wondering why he seemed so off....right now the main goal for her was to protect the weapons wing as if they got int here they really were doomed. All the secrets products she was working on would have been lost to the enemy something they couldn't afford to risk. "Ye a'richt Allesandro? anythin'? ah think ah huv some stored blood 'ere somewhere. You ok Allesandro?? Need anything? I think I have some stored blood here somewhere....."
Hearing Ramses she nods to herself they would talk about it more at dawn anyhow...but yes when this was all done she just may return with him to the fingertip...but when that would be she had no idea right now with the rebels fighting to a hard battle it wasn't looking like their mission at the capitol would be successful....not sure if she do that suicide mission afterall. The gash on her upper arm was deep but finally stopped bleeding out..thank god maybe she'd even enjoy some blood now as well the thought made her long pureblood fangs protrude more.
08-01-2011, 03:07 AM
Allesandro stood up quickly. Maybe a bit too quickly, he fell down again and got back up. He completely forgot what he was dwelling on a second ago. "Really?" he asked Azura. "Good. I don't think it's a good idea to go a week without blood. Used most of my energy getting in here." He picked the staff up. "You get me something to get me some energy, and ill be able to help you out. I will pay this debt that I owe you. Until then, I will help you fight."
He looked at the weapons, but decided to make one instead. He took the metal and examined it. He used what energy he had left and started to make a weapon out of it. He melted the edges and thinned them into blades. He held the metal like a spear once it cooled. He smiled. I promise to pay you back for the blood." he said, cracking his knuckles. His stomach ached. "Im going to need a bit." He leaned on the make shift spear.

Kayli looked absolutely shocked when Ramses mentioned being in love with Azura. Then she noticed his ring...didnt azura have a matching one? She couldnt remember but this was a little to much for her to think about. She refocused, he knew she was shielding. He had killed 3/4 of her friends. That was a lot...in fact AJay could easily have been a part of that amount. A tear stung her eye. Kayli wasnt known for crying either, then she broke.
"You love Azura but would kill the people who have been protecting her, her friends?" Kayli began almost shaking with anger. "You would kill us simply because you like having power? you like being a pureblood and stomping on us all? Do you even know who you attacked? or were you simply ordered to do so? The yellville group never attacked yall! never killed!"Taking a deep breath her eyes glowed for a second "Your a murderer..."
Instead of chasing Kayli's hide hand stretched and blocked Ramses path, causing him to crash into it, then she was on top of him. She kicked in an attempt to knock him down before she started a rapid fire to his chest plate. She didnt give a damn how much armor he wore she would blast a hole in it and kill him if she had to.

Alanoth managed to escape after the encounter with the samurai, just barely. He had run as fast as vampiric speed would allow, and then hidden in some of the remaining shadows on his way to fresh air. After escaping the ruins and running to an abandoned building, he found a corner of a room on the top floor, and cried like a child. How could he have left her?
She turns to Alanoth and grabs his face and pulls him close kissing his forehead. “Alanoth go….leave now don’t worry about me… I’ve always been a better fighter then you anyway.” She pulls away with a smile on her face then made her way toward the assailant rebel.
After having that flashback, Alanoth cried some more. This was extremely unlike him, and he knew why it had happened. He had decided to let his mission become priority over what little family he had known in a long time, and he now regretted it. Mika had always been more than just a surrogate sister to him, he had grown to love her. Now, he would never be able to make ammends.
As he wiped his eyes and allowed them to instead glow with rage, he found himself purposely fueling his raging fire within. He knew, that because he had left Mika behind, she would be killed by that rebel, killed by that samurai, or captured by the rebels and executed for betraying them. As Alanoth gripped his swords, electricity he had drained from the rebel hideout generators sparked into bolts that wrapped around his katanas. He would avenge whatever they did to Mika, and he would fulfill his mission at the same time. But first, he thought as he called Ramses, he would need a way of finding the rebel tha Mika had called, Ajay.
08-02-2011, 04:40 AM
AJay knew the assasin had gotten away. He wasnt fast enough to chase him either...kayli would have been but not him. Sighing he looked Mika over carefully. She was hurt, bleeding, he could smell and sense it. He had two choices...attack, fight, and kill Mika for being a traitor...or give her a second chance if she would take it. Thinking for just a moment he straitened up out of his fighting stance. Walking over to Mika he was ready to defend himself but he didnt look threatening.
"You kissed him...and not only that but its obvious you care for him. You said he was all the family you have." Swallowing a bit hard from nerves "Kayli is all the family I have left. Id be a hypocrite if I tried killing you for defending the one person you have left."
AJay extended a hand, he was offering to help her out.
"I wont tell anyone what I saw and Kasuka was in such a rage I dont think he will remember who exactly we were. Now come on...last chance. You can still help us out." he waited to see what her reaction would be, but he couldnt bring himself to just take her down. It seemed like they had a lot in common and he understood her.
08-02-2011, 05:41 AM
Mika stood there in relief seeing that Ajay didn’t take off after Alanoth. Her pale blue eyes were filled with grief… “You…. You let him go” she lowers her sais and looks back at Ajay. "You kissed him...and not only that but it’s obvious you care for him. You said he was all the family you have. Kayli is all the family I have left. I’d be a hypocrite if I tried killing you for defending the one person you have left."
Mika places her sai’s back and takes Ajay’s hand. “She was so tired and emotional drained from the whole situation. It had been year’s since she got to hold Alanoth, and in a blink of an eye he was gone again. It hurt her so much to let him go and leave her behind but they had changed and both seeked different objectives. He was still all about the destruction of the rebels, and here Mika was hand in hand with a rebel, who could have taken her down in a heartbeat. “Ajay why are you doing this…Why are you treating me as if you know me? I have slaughtered millions of your people I just saved the life of an known aslant that has murder over half of your men…..But yet you offer me your friendship.”
She smiles a little stepping closer to Ajay. She couldn’t help but feel a little spark between her and Ajay which was so strange to her she had never met a guy that’s she barely knew make her feel actually like a woman, and not a soldier, a monster, a murderer .She slowly leans in and kiss Ajay on the cheek and stares deep into his eyes, she couldn’t let him known what had happen, and she couldn’t let him see how weak she truly was. “Ajay thank you so much for saving me from that horrible creature, and for that I’m internal grateful to you Ajay.” She steps back keeping her eyes glued to his as she tried to push the thought into his head. “Please let this work” She thought to herself but she had become so weak she didn’t have much strength to keep it up.

Azura went into the fridge pulling out some of her prime choice blood as they both needed the richest kind to recover faster....tossing him 2 large bags to make up for the week of none. Tearing into a bag herself she opened the pour spout and directly poured the blood into her mouth chuggling it down some running down her cheek and neck from the corners of her mouth. She would drink another one at least once back at her own place but for now this would suffice.
The wound healing on her upper arm; an idea sparks in her head.....grabbing another couple of bags stuffing it in a large cooler lunch box with ice packs. " We need tae gang whin ye'r done....the others wull this that ur aye alive. A'm feelin' th' battle turning tae oor favor sae we mist act swiftly tae safe they we kin. We need to go when you're done....the others will need this that are still alive. I feel the battle turning to our favor so we must act swiftly to safe those we can." Deciding to stuff as many bags in the cooler she left it open for quick reach waiting on the lad that had vowed to pay her back indebted to her.
Not knowing much about him she wasn't going to leave him in her treasured weapons wing of the building...hearing the plant structure creak and groan her eyes grew wide quickly grabbing all her crafting tools fearing the worse. Slinging the heavy backpack on her shoulders; Azura helped the boy up loading him with another backpack of tools before guiding him out the door, the room securing itself upon closure as she silently moved to where the noise was rubble crumbling from the roof in front of them. "Ah hate tae say this...but we micht huv tae run oot o' 'ere fast...best bade close 'n' nae git lost ok?" I hate to say this...but we may have to run out of here fast...best stay close and not get lost ok?"

The girl moved extremely fast, moving her hide hand to knock Ramses down, she planted a kick to hold him and began shooting at his armor, slowly chipping it away. “Murderer?!” Ramses lifted his forearms and returned them with speed, his fists were clenched and when they hit the ground a small tremor grew where he was manipulating deep earth, the walls of the arena began to crack ever so slightly and it was enough of a distraction to roll the female off of him. Ramses jumped up and cracked his neck, making a grating noise again, similar to the sound of granite when you move it against each-other. “I am no murderer, I am a warrior of the great people of Osiris, you are the murderers, pathetic made and half vampires trying to find a measly ‘justice’ in our glorious vampiric world, I ask you this, if you had never attacked anyone, then why would you plan to attack one of the biggest vampiric gatherings for purebloods in existence, why would your scouts attack me, you rebels are pathetic.” Ramses lifted his hand as if he was conducting a quire, a huge hand created out of sand rose out of the ground, constantly losing and regaining the matter that mad it up, Ramses swung his hand and it approached the girl, hitting her and pulling its sandy fingers around her small body. “I am no murderer!” Ramses voice was becoming demonic now, something gained by age. “I am Ramses, killer of millions, planner of hundreds and the last thing that hundreds of thousands saw, my blade chopping through their ranks, but I am also the end of you rebel scum.” Ramses opened his hand and swung it down, the hand copied him and slammed the girl into the floor and remaining there. “And I am now done playing.” Ramses said as he received the mental message from Alanoth, taking a bow but leaving the vast amounts of sand lying on top of the girl, he forced open the arena wall and walked through, before closing it again. Ramses ran down the empty hall and into the next hall, which he brought down afterwards, before he had gone into that room there were two female rebels, when Ramses left, there were corpses and body parts.
‘Return to the place you are staying in Alanoth, I will come and meet you somewhere, keep your mind sharp, they have some strong adversaries.’
Ramses was withdrawing from the battle, sending out another message. ‘I hope this makes you happy Azura, but we’ll be back, so try not to get yourself killed...’
08-02-2011, 04:24 PM
Allesandro had drunk both packets at an amazing speed. He cracked his knuckles as energy surged through him. He felt the pains in his stomach go away and he smiled. "Lucks finally turning." he said and nodded to Azura. "We will have to run." He hefted the piece of metal that was now a spear and slung it across his back. He put his gloves on again.
While he had been in the building, he had taken note of its condition. He could tell the building wasn't going to last long "Judging from that sound, id say the main support structures have been destroyed, most of them anyway." he said, starting to calculate in his head. "Id say we have about... twenty minutes, maybe less."
He put his hand on his neck. "I have an idea." he said. "I know how to get everyone in here to safety. Can you get all the people in this building to one place?" He thought another second. "And so you trust me a bit more, the names Allesandro, Alex for short." He continued with his plan. "Now, if we can get them to a outer wall, I can make a hole in it. And why this way? We don't have time to get them single file through the front door..." he laughed a bit. "Plus... I might have melted it shut..."
08-04-2011, 02:13 AM
Kayli was furious but she didnt get the chance to talk back. She was swamped by sand. The last thing she was able to do was extend the hide-hand bubble around her head to keep from being suffocated. The hide-hand clinging to her body kept her from being crushed but not from being burried. She could tell Ramses was gone...she was stuck.
"Why is this happening?" she mummbled before a few tears slipped down her cheeks "We never hurt anyone, our unit was a quiet one...we never killed a soul. Futon wouldnt let us...he exiled people who did. He felt it wouldnt help anything but were the ones getting slaughtered...." taking a few breaths she calmed down. Apparent the rest of the rebels werent as controled as the Yellville group. Apparently they were killers...her group prefered sabatoge. Thats why Futon had been so spooked when Chiffton had arrived discussing murder and violent attacks. She took another few breaths. "This is ridiculous..." she said to herself again. Talking to herself had always helped her think. "Maybe if I focus enough energy into it I slowly extend my hide hand and move the sand off..." Centering herself she focused, and slowly but surely it began to work. A few munites later the sand above her was just a thin layer and finally she was free. Taking a deep breath she hadnt realized until then how thin her air had gotten. Breathing hard for a few minutes she stood up, waited until she was no longer dizzy then heard the building creaking.
"Well Shit." she said sprinting off. She needed to find whoever was alive and get them out. Finding a few she pulled them along with her, clearing her floor she discovered how few a survivors were left. Rounding a few more corners on the next floor she came across Azura and someone she didnt know. Coming up to them she slowed down to match their pace "Whats yalls plans to get out of here?"
In the hallway AJay was smiling at Mika when she took his hand. He kept smiling as she spoke too. He didnt know why he felt such a strong connection to her but he did and he wanted to help her. He felt something with her, something he wasnt sure about but wanted to explore. He blushed when she kissed his cheek, somthing unusual for a vampire but very possible. He also wished he had the nerves to kiss her back.
"I dont care about your past Mika. All I know is that you have been hurt in so many ways...I can feel it...Ive been hurt too. Who knows maybe we can help one another, and you didnt just let a killer go, you let your family go...If it were Kayli I would have fought for her too." He felt her trying to push at his mind a bit and smirked "Kayli is the mental type, you cant really mess with my head much. Esspecially when your hurt, tired, and weak."
About this time the building began to groan and crumble. AJay swallowed hard, they were on one of the higher floors. There was no way they would get downstairs quick enough. A scan of the floor told him that there werent any others survivors that high up. Looking at Mika he said "You trust me?" Before grabbing hold of her tight, careful not to hurt her wound and jumping out the nearest window. First they were in freefall then they were slowing down, eventually gliding to the ground. Smirking he looking at Mika "I can fly."
In a shadowed hallway Chiffton took a deep sigh "That should have relieved us of the weak ones atleast...the rest will be so furious theres no way they could refuse going to the capitol."
"Yes they will." came a second voice. Chiffton lifted his head to see Futon standing there covered in blood from the fighting, or from trying to save others. Chiffton frowned.
"I think ive had enough of your peace tactics...This group is about to have a new leader." Reaching into the shadows Chiffton pulled out a sharp stick from somewhere within his own little shadow world.
"You wouldnt..." Futon said, Chiffton just smirked. Before you could blink the stake was in Futons chest. He fell within moments, dead. The building was already groaning and with a swift kick Chiffton hit a beam, assuring it would fall as the steel snapped.
"I always hated hallways...to narrow." The blonde said as he disappeared into the shadows, appearing outside in the dark ally.
The building begins to actually fall appart and the living rebels are escaping anyway possible on their own. Azura, Kayli, and Alex all need to escape now. Feel free to come up with our master escape plan and assume Kayli follows you two.
No one is aware that Chiffton killed Futon. After his body is found everyone asumes the wood went through him when the building collasped.
Outside Chiffton had walked into the street infront of the building and looked horrified as it fell. He had perfected his facial control years ago, litterally perfected. Rebels who had escaped the onsluaght met him in the street forming a small group.
08-04-2011, 06:21 AM
Azura and the young lad close at her heals along with only 2 others they managed to save; they almost run hard into Kayli, very glad to see her there was no time to waste. They all had to get out of there fast! "Weel ah cannae gang thro' walls bit gimme an open windae or muckle enough nook 'n' we kin mak' this wirk Well I can't go through walls but give me an open window or big enough hole and we can make this work!" The small group races along the 2nd floor towards where the roof first collapsed knowing there would be the opening Azura would need big enough to take them all out.
Minutes later she screetched to a halt almost falling off the edge of the floor where it was destroyed clear to the bottom floor. "Dam blether aboot a ill fall! a'richt... Dam talk about a bad fall!! Ok..." Turning around she looked at the other four then carefully looked up at the huge no roof opening. "A' body needs tae haud oan tight...traveling by breeze isnae exactly a time tae be flailing aboot, keep close 'n' tight tae eachother 'n' weel be oot faster than ye kin say Blarney stane!!" "Everyone needs to hold on tight...traveling by breeze isn't exactly a time to be flailing about, keep close and tight to eachother and well be out faster than you can say Blarney Stone!." Giving the quick warning she guided them into what would look like on heck of a tight group hug if it wasn't for the loud rubble and creaking structure all around them. Closing her eyes Azura took a deep breath in...and upon the exhale they were all gone in a whisping breeze. Holding tight to the ones near her the pureblood guided them through the opening with little harm, above the building now she saw Chiffton, Ajay and Mika out and safe but no Fulton. A strong gust of wind blew around the higher ranked rebel before all 5 appeared safely on the ground. "Whaur is Fulton? ah haven't seen him sin th' attack...Marianna is oot 'n' safe, she gaed 'n' bolted aff oan her ain bit haes mah hert blades sae she shuid be a'richt Where is Fulton?? I haven't seen him since the attack...Marianna is out and safe, she went and ran off on her own but has my heart blades so she should be alright."

Mika holds Ajay tight as they jump out the window her mind was racing as fear took her breath away as the wind blew throw her hair. Her eyes were shut tight and her head was pressed close to Ajay shielding her faces until she heard Ajay mutter he could fly.
A sense of clam came over her as she started to enjoy herself even those the wounds were causing her pain she couldn’t help but smile at Ajay. “Such a sweet boy…a loving boy” she thought as she stared into his eyes. Years of trashing the half blood, hunting and killing rebels all seemed to melt away in his arms for once in a long time she actually felt she was meant for something more. As they land in a small group of rebels some injured some barely hanging on a sense of guilt hit Mika, which was strange.
The other purebloods use to say Mika was born with no remorse if she was a human her heart would be cold a gray. Now she stands around watching everyone crying, hurting, and dying feeling and seeing the pain of others made her think of her own pain and madness. She lets go of Ajay and grabs her side which was the worse of her injuries the pain was awful, but she didn’t let a tear fall she just stood next to Ajay watching the building crumble and fall. She clinched her fist so tight in anger that they began to bleed send blood on to the street where she stood the street underneath her feet begin to crumble and crack.
She push through the other making her way to Chiffton she walks up next to him her eyes filled with anger turning them from their pale blue color to a crimson shade. “When do we attack those sorry cowards? I can’t wait to taste their sour blood.” She says to Chiffton.
08-04-2011, 10:10 PM
As they landed AJay started looking through the crowd to see who all was still alive. There werent many...but those who were alive seemed shaken but ok. He watched Mika's temper flare but didnt say a word. He didnt stop her as she walked through the crowd either, actually hebegan to scan the crowd for Kayli.
Kayli had listened to everything Azura said and just shut her eyes to stay calm, and thusly still. She felt the light breeze, a floating sensation, then ground beneath her feet again. She could hear others crying and opened her eyes to see the building fall, turning around she saw the band of survivors and heard Azura asking where Futon was, she then heard Mika ask when they would attack the purebloods. So many emotions running on high...but she didnt care. The only person she wanted to see was her brother, and preferable alive and in one piece. Then she saw him, standing still and looking through the crowd himself. Running up behind him she swamped him with a hug.
AJay was nearly bowled over by Kayli but he was so relieved to see her he didnt care and just hugged her. They had both made it.
Chiffton was getting addressed with far to many questions for his liking. Everyone wanted to know where someone was or what they would do next. So he chose to focus on the important questions. "We will set up headquarters in a different, more structurally sound building...just give me a day or two to figure out where. We didnt loose our blood supply, I can call in a favor at the local blood bank." answering a few more questions he got to Azuras question "I dont know where Futon is...since he isnt with us I can only asume the worst..." he looked sincerely troubled by this before addressing Mika "We will continue as planned...it will do us no good to attack now. Our numbers are cut, we need to cut theirs...They did this hoping we might do something stupid like attack them suddenly." lastly he address another vampire asking about looking for survivors in the rubble. "We will go through the rubble tonight to asure that anyone who is still miraculously alive gets help and is inside before the sun comes up. Now break youselves into groups and start searching."
Everyone began to break off and start searching. Kayli looked at AJay "Im fast and you can sense other vampires, we can help find people who are alive and alert the teams. Ill pull you along you say when to stop."
"Ok" AJay said "Ill tell Mika and you tell Azura so they can keep an eye on us and know when weve found someone." They both nodded and ran off. Approaching Mika AJay put a hand on her shoulder. "Mika, Kayli is going to speed this up by pulling me along...she is super fast and I can sense other vampires. If anyones alive in that mess we can find them and get someone working to help them. So keep an eye on us." This time he got a little braver and kissed her cheek before running back to find Kayli again.
"Im going to use my speed and AJay ability to sense other vampires to find survivors...I figure you will organize a team or two so tell them to keep an eye on us and you do the same." Kayli was telling Azura when AJay came up to her. With another nod the sibling dashed out over the rubble. The area was lifeless...then finally they found someone.
"Hey theres one under this pile somewhere!" Ajay shouted for whoever could hear him.

Once he found where Marianna ran off to, Kasuka slowed his pace, to a light human like jog. '.....' His mind blank, not able to think about anything, not even the girl he chased after to make sure she was safe. Suddenly, he just stopped moving all together. As he looked around he felt a calm about the area, a bit of peace. Even though it was a swamp, it felt as if it was a temple that he use to visit when he was a young human. He spoke in a light whisper to wherever Marianna was, "...I know you need to find yourself here so I will not step in....this is a journey you need to take yourself...." He turned and began to walk back out of the swamp, clothes began to smell like the place and it was very foul. "....Look for me when you are ready Marianna....I will be waiting for you my young friend...."
As he made his way back into Yellvile, Kasuka came across a run down apartment he decided to take over for the time being. As he entired, the people that were trying to worm their way in left quicker then a flash of light. Making his way into his "room", he took a quick shower and changed his clothes. Now that he was wearing a nice black tuxedo like suit, Kasuka let his hair down. '...I hope she finds the strength within herself....' He thought as he let his mind fade into a empty thought of what was happening before he left the Rebel's little base. The feeling he had with the assassin was pure hate, something he never felt since the one that made Kasuka the vampire he was now. He tried to understand why he felt that way, perhaps it was finally a strong opponent, or his mind weaking to the thirst, but he knew it had to do with Marianna. Something about the girl made Kasuka relive old memories he labeled as lost, brought out the kindness in him that he casted away, gave him a calm he never had since before the death of Honika. Perhaps she was reincarnated into Marianna but only by spirit, that would be why he feels so protective of her and only meet her for a short time. He drowned the image away with a few bags of blood, hoping it would calm him down, which it did.
Shaking his head, casting the thoughts aside, he left his little room and decided to meet back up with the Rebels seeing how his mind is more clear and blood lust no longer is in his eyes. He walked all the way back to find the entire building in ruins and only a handful of people standing outside, some hurt and other confused. As he got closer he could make them out, and hear them clearly. "I dont know where Futon is...since he isnt with us I can only asume the worst..." He heard come from a voice that sounded like Chiffton. Then a image flooded Kasuka's mind that showed a shadow like figure kill the one he knew was Futon, then the image was gone. '...was it that assassin I want to kill?....no...it could have been but I can feel it wasn't him....now who was it?' As he approached he heard the rest of Chiffton's grand plan to retaliate against the ones that did this to them, and saw others rush off to search the rubble for possible survivers.
Kasuka walked up slowly behind Chiffton like a gentlemen killer of the night in his black tux, his long black hair looking like it was part of the beautiful night breeze that passed, and his katana and wakizashi placed in his belt. "Actually....from experience, now would be the best time to strike, they hope we strike....but do they ever truely expect us to do it?" He said in a way to challenge Chiffton's little speach, calling it a bluff. Kasuka began to move all the pieces in his head one by one, like one would do in shogui or chess. "I say strike back...nothing is more fierce then a wounded cornered animal....so why wait and lick our wounds.....you have a 'greater' plan in mind Kra..." He quickly caught himself and continued, "....Chiffton?" Kasuka knew he was walking on very thin ice, if there was ice at all. The whole time he talked to Chiffton, Kasuka was hinting at he knew what happened to Futon and that Chiffton better know not to try to use Kasuka in the same way one would use a piece on a game board to gain a advantage. His words carried warning with a hint of threat into the ears of the person he spoke to. Chiffton knew Kasuka wasn't a rebel, he didn't share the same plans as they did, all Kasuka wanted was to find some sort of peace whether it be in this life or the next he didn't care, just as long as he wasn't being manipulated against his will for some grander plan.
08-05-2011, 01:37 AM
Allesandro had stayed in the back, trying not to be noticed. He was listening intently to what all the rebels were saying. It appeared they were planning for some kind of attack. And seeing that they were rebels, the only ones they were going to attack were rebels. He thought of his friend, the one who had been killed by some half-blood. He grew furious, gripping the spear and accidentally melting it. He threw it to the side.
What was he supposed to do anyway? He had declared these people his enemies, yet he was in their debt. If not for Azura, he would have been killed. He couldn't decide what to do. It was against his morals to attack anyone who had helped him. He heard some people talking and looked up.
He was staring at a group around a blonde man. However, he was only paying attention to one person, a female in the group. She was oddly familiar. So strange, for no matter how hard he thought, he had no memory of her. Perhaps they had passed each other on the streets. Probably. He moved closer to the group, not wanting to interupt, but to see this woman better.
08-05-2011, 02:58 AM
Chiffton smiled as he turned to look at Kasuka. He was no fool and neither was the sammurai. "Now Kasuka...we have an agreement dont we? You know good and well what my plans are, and while what you say is good and true...it will benefit us both to follow through with my initial plan." for a split second Chifftons eyes flashed an icy color, but it wasnt all that noticable. Only Kasuka would have seen the change. "I dont need to remove you from my services do I? I quite like having you around right now."
It was clear that removing Kasuka from his service wouldnt include a simple discharge. Chiffton would kill him before letting him become a real threat. It wouldnt be a contest either...the blonde vampire knew he could decimate the sammurai without thought.
"Now I suggest that you kindly try to keep from slipping up again and join in the search for survivors." With that Chiffton took his leave towards the rubble and began to help look for survivors. Some of the remaining rebels seemed to gain a level of respect for him then...just what he needed.
08-05-2011, 08:58 PM
Azura didn't like how things were going down, she didn't trust Chiffton at all as he seemed far to upbeat and ready to challenge anyone who questioned the situation. Noticing Allesandro's uneasyness, his inner confliction, she touched his shoulder, gently guiding him to follow her through the rubble...they needed to talk and not be heard. " Come oan wee jimmy, howfur aboot we see whit ye 'n' ah kin fin' hmm? Come on boy, how about we see what you and I can find hmm?"
As the two were moving through the rubble, Azura already smart enough to hide her tools she used to craft their weapons where Chiffton couldn't find. They helped to pass out the blood in the lunch cooler to those who needed it untill they got to where her weapons were....some stored in the best safes she could buy they might have survived. Moving rubble away as the roof of the room collapsed the secured door was of no use.
" Ah ken yer facing a conflict o' interest, let me tell ye richt noo yer alligence is tae me wha saved ye, 'n' git ye oot o' th' building. 'n' ainlie me...Chiffton wid be glaikit tae challenge otherwise; yer ne'er a servant bit a mukker 'n' as a mukker a'm waantin' tae ken yer thoughts...where ye'r frae, whit's yer intents, gifts, yer background. I know you are facing a conflict of interest, let me tell you right now your alligence is to me who saved you, and got you out of the building. And only me...Chiffton would be stupid to challenge otherwise; you are never a servant but a friend and as a friend I want to know your thoughts...where you're from, what's your intents, gifts, your background. "
Finding the row of safes she smiled as they were dented, some more than others...but opened well enough. Everything else in the room was destroyed past recognition to anyone but her. Taking the bags inside the lockers they loaded all the weapons up carefully some ammo was no good, bends and dents in some weapons with a possibility of repair. As others were still in great condition; great news for her as she'd take what she could get considering the collapse of the building. "Chiffton doesn't seem right...I dinnae trust him 'n' refuse tae be apart o' th' team he wants tae uise tae attack th' capitol. He doesn't tae ken this mynd ye. Noo noticing his weapon doesn't huv ony blood or bin fired mak's it a' th' mair streenge Chiffton doesn't seem right...I don't trust him and refuse to be apart of the team he wants to use to attack the capitol. He doesn't need to know this mind you... Now noticing his weapon doesn't have any blood or been fired makes it all the more strange."
Holding a finger to her lips for silence she motioned him through the building rubble to the spot she last heard Fulton's voice, slipping through the narrow opening the roof above them groaned loudly. They had to be quick; looking around she saw only one pile of vampiric ash, within the scorched ring of Fulton's. Grabbing a jar she took from one of the safes, emptying the arrow tips into the bag she with great respect collected the dust into the jar and sealed it tight...protecting it well within the bag she carried. "A'm needin' tae gang visit they o' my....betrothed's clan thay wull hulp me wi' ony suspisions we huv. Bit thay huv na tolerance fur halfbloods or rebels, 'n' na amurnay a rebel ah ainlie cop thay thair chance tae be heard thats a'. Though noo if a'm right...they kin huv destoyed that chance in mah een. A'm needin' ye tae bade involved wi' th' group in mah absence...my een fur me. Think ye'r up fur it Allesandro? I need to go visit those of my....betrothed's clan they will help me with any suspisions we have. But they have no tolerance for halfbloods or rebels, and no I'm not a rebel I only feel they need their chance to be heard thats all. Though now if I'm right...they may have destoyed that chance in my eyes. I need you to stay involved with the group in my absence...my eyes for me. Think you're up for it Allesandro?" Azura smiled friendly to him before they left by her breeze just before the roof in the room collapsed making it inexcessible; so that she can stow away the bag with Fulton's remains undetected. Quick about it they returned to the building and walked out to the others on foot helping one of younger boys out from the building mess straight to the medics so to speak with blood.
08-06-2011, 12:50 AM
When he had heard that Azura wasn't a rebel, Allesandro listened intently. He felt much better knowing he wasn't exactly sided with the rebels. He had so many questions. He decided to just ask a few. "I have some questions." he said to Azura. "Im going to guess those people who attacked this place were pure-bloods. How did they find this place? Who is this Chiffton? And finally, who is that girl in the group over there? The angry one with the black hair?"
He suddenly remembered all of his belongings he had hidden."Wait a sec." he said and ran off. He found his bag behind the bushes, untouched. He quickly ran back, the bag over his back. "Im really sorry." he said. "Had to get all that was left of the stuff I had." He accidentally dropped the bag and it burst open. One of his dress shoes fell out. He picked it up and a wallet fell out with a note. He picked up the note and read it. All it said was 'You dropped this." He picked up the wallet. He thought he was going to cry. "I went a week... eating what I could find... And it was there the entire time..."
He turned to Azura. "All right." he said "Could you answer the questions quickly. Might get my mind of what just happened."
08-06-2011, 12:57 AM
Kasuka expected the eye flash from Chiffton, all the people that hired him always tried to intimidate him, trying to prove they were the higher being no matter if they were human or vampire, full, half, or made. He just stood there and gave a small smile as Chiffton walked onto the rubble to "help search". Standing there, Kasuka made his back straight, poping it then letting out a deep breath. "Who said I slipped, maybe I did that on purpose?" He said raising a eye-brow. "Also....." He started to walk forward, lightly kicking a little rock off to the side. "...you paid me to hunt down and eliminate your quote unquote 'enemies', not to dig through twisted metal, so next time....say please....just a suggestion." He looked around, just to skim the area to see if anyone was paying attention and how grim the situation became for the rebels. He noticed one female with a back injury that had to come from a slashing weapon and not from the building that fell. '....hmm...' He didn't look into it for any longer as he turned to face Chiffton.
For some people that were watching or listening to the conversation might think that Kasuka was trying to pick a fight, but he wasn't. He was speaking with pure respect to him. As he walked to the rubble, he summoned some of his mosture to slide through the rubble to find people that might be alive. "So...I have to ask you this Chiffton...Who were those two that attacked this building and the people in it?" He tilted his head a little. '...owh found two....' Using his mist to push on the metal and rubble, he exposed two individuals that were having a hard time breathing. "I hate not being told everything that I might need to know, thats why I don't ask questions about my job....it's up to the client to tell me all possible threats and the earth manipulater and the one that hides in shadows would be those threats." He moved his hands out of his pockets and crossed his arms across his chest.
"Did you fail to tell the Rebels here of this threat or was that on a need to know? Also, why don't you explain that to me, and don't act as if you didn't know cause something tells me you did." He was pushing the subject farther then he knew Chiffton was willing to go. Even though he was trying to sound respectful, with no hostility in his voice, he knew the words came out as if he was being hostile. Still standing there, he exposed a few more people, one alive and one was dead. "........" Kasuka waited for his answer as all that was left of the rebels were around him. Point blank, he didn't care about the Rebels or the Pures differences, he didn't care about the war, he just wanted all the violence to stop so he could find some sort of peace in his life, and he was willing to kill any of the Vampires around him and any of the Pures to make all the unneeded deaths to end.
08-06-2011, 01:18 AM
Mika listen to Chiffton as he answered all the question that were being screamed out by the sadden, and angered rebel troop, but she didn’t care what he had to say she wanted revenge before, but now it was her mission she wouldn’t stop until she drained every drop of Brother’s blood on to the cold dark ground. Suddenly she was taken by surprise by Ajay placing his hand on her shoulder drawing her attention away from their leader. She stands there listening to the plan Ajay had come up with.
Sure I will keep my eyes on you.” She says with a smile. She wanted to thank him for all he had done for her but; Mika had always been taught not to show weakness. She turns away and feels Ajay kiss her cheek not knowing what to say she places her hand on her cheek and turns to see him running toward Kayli. She smiled and shook her head.
Mika turned toward rubble and watched as Ajay and Kayli searched, but out of the corner of her eyes she noticed a strange figure that seemed to be staring at her but she just ignored it not even turning to acknowledge the man she just figured it was a mad rebel that wanted to blame her for the mess.Plus she noticed the same man that had tried to kill Alanoth her anger grew more and more, but she didn’t dare approach him she knew if she did her cover would be blown and no matter how much she like Ajay she would have a fight on her hands.
08-06-2011, 02:18 AM
"I am uncertain about who the assasins are Kasuka but I have reason to believe the earth bender was an egyptian dubbed Ramses...the other assisn is a mystery but after observing his fighting technique I think he is simular to a hit man named Alanoth. Those are my best guesses." In truth they werent guesses at all but who needed to know where he got his info? "As for knowing if this threat was coming I was as clueless as any other rebel. Are you insinuating that im somehow in with our enemies?" it was clear for a moment that Chiffton was loosing his temper, but he was being so polite about it no one would have noticed...then his temper disappeared. In fact all signs of emotion did for a moment before he sighed heavily.
"Its been a hard day Kasuka...I apologize for seeming arogant. Perhaps I need help here with this mess. After all I am not much of a military leader...I am nothing more then a kind social face for the rebels." pulling out his cellphone he made a call. "Analies sir...its Chiffton..." a pause "Word spreads fast then, well in this circumstance I would like help. Can you please free up and send Shiba to me?" pause "Yes its definently nessicary." pause "Yes sir, thank you..." Chiffton then hung up.
Its been about an hour and anyone left living has been rescued. The rebels are regrouping in the street once more. Finish up any secret discussions and move on folks.
Chiffton waited until the masses gathered. He looked quite forlorn and there was a respectful silence before he lifted his head to speak. "Due to the loss and chaos I called for assistance my breatheren. Our leader Analies is going to send his second Shiba to help us in our time of need."
Many of the rebels seemed relieved and prepared to fight, Chiffton insisted they calm themselves and wait for news from Shades Run...Shiba would be there within the next night. Many rebels then began to disappear back to their homes.
In shades run Shiba couldnt believe what she was hearing from Analies. "You want me to go join Chiffton and assist in the Capitol attack?"
"Yes, its the only way...they made a brutal attack on our men and now we must retaliate. Make sure our plans are followed and the purebloods listed are destroyed then lead the assault."
"Perhaps we should re think our plans instead? Try making friends instead of enemies? I dont know...this just seems like its going to cost lives sir..."
"A war always does."
"You use to not think this way!" Shiba snapped then quieted "Sorry sir."
"Its alright...but ive simply adjusted to the times. Now pack and go Shiba. A car will be provided to shelter you from the sun. I know it wont kill you but lets not have you sick for days like you were after your last exposure."
"Yes sir." and with that Shiba regretfully departed. She didnt like the change in her leader...she didnt Chiffton...and she didnt like making an attack on the capitol...but she would follow orders, even if she was reluctant. Getting in the car provided it started the drive to Yellville.
Back at Yellville AJay and Kayli we standing in the group of rebels listening. Once dismissed Kayli was prepared to just go home. She was tired...had nearly died a few times...and was simply going to fall in her bed and cry when she got home. No one would ever know the last part, but she would feel better anyway.
AJay was still quite alert on the other hand. Something was nagging his thoughts, he just didnt know what yet. All he knew was that he now had his resolve...he would go after the brothers and if he could he would kill or atleast help kill them. "Ive decided I am going to the capitol...somethings telling me to go..."
Kayli slapped him. "Your suicidal!" she snapped, AJay looked hurt but a tear slipped from Kayli's eye and she dashed off before she could be seen. She didnt want her brother to run off on a suicide mission...she didnt even want to be a rebel anymore, it was quickly becoming to much for her.
AJay was now alone, so he sought out the only other person he felt a connection to at the time, Mika. She had just arrived in town...or so he thought anyway...he could atleast offer her a place to stay and not have to walk home alone. Finding her he walked up still looking rather bothered but managing a smile "How are you doing?"
08-06-2011, 07:18 PM
As Alanoth waited impatiently at the rondevous-a bar on the edge of yellville-he went over his plan in his head again. First, he would tell Ramses all that he hadn't old him, except for his past with Mika. Then, he would kill the vampire samurai who's name was still a mystery to Alanoth, so that no one would come after them. Then, Ramses and Alanoth would try to prevent the attack on the capitol. For a finisher, he would find Mika, and they would both go far away into hiding so no one would ever seperate them again.
As Alanoth thought, he realized that he had left one part out of his mental plan. Taking care of the rebel known as Ajay, who was the reason Mika had been hurt. Alanoth gripped and crushed the metal mug he was using for his drink as he thought about that rebel. He seemed to have a sister, as ika's thoughts about Ajay had betrayed, so Alanoth could wait for an opportune moment and use the sister as leverage to draw him out. It would have to be done before he and Mika escaped, but not before they stopped the rebels' attack on the capitol.
Alanoth took a swig of his special order bloodwine, and motioned for another. As the bartender hurried over to persnally give Alanoth his drink, Alanoth watched the door. When Ramses walked in, Alanoth hoped that the egyptian would spot him quickly, Alanoth wanted to get moving again soon. The rebels were sure to speed up their attack on the capitol after the attack that Ramses and Alanoth had staged on the rebel ideout.
08-07-2011, 12:44 AM
Azura looks to Alex "I know you don't have anywhere to stay and I have a big 3 bedroom place. You can stay with me long as you like just respect me, those who come, and help me create more weapons in the basement or collect our share from the blood bank and we're good." Smiling in a friendly manner as she bids everyone a good days slumber walking back to her big house. Tomorrow she'd go to the egyptian's fingertip and see about getting some answers from them about Chiffton..about everything as right now she felt betrayed by the rebels and if her suspisions were confirmed...they will soon find out her powerful past.
08-07-2011, 12:53 AM
"I can do all that." Allesandro said, nodding his head. "I think Im going to stay out a bit longer though. I don't feel tired, and all of whats happened has gotten me curious. If you write down the address, ill be there. Heck, ill even go through the remains and salvage usable equipment with some others. Sound good?" He hoped she would say yes. He had some things he had to figure out.
08-07-2011, 01:03 AM
Azura nods giving him the address knowing sunrise was soon approaching he wouldnt be out much longer anyways. "There...key in the gargoyles mouth...bloodin fridge and 2 extra bedrooms with ready beds for you take your pick."
With that Azura went home..drank 2 goblets of blood that early morning. Took a hot shower thinking a few things over in the hot water. If Shiba came down with the reinforcements she may have to get some alone disscussion out of her away from spying eyes and ears. Getting dressed for bed in her gown she slipped in bed sighing as she knew it wouldnt be long till Ramses would finally join her in their own bed....something they've waited for with greatest of patience.
08-07-2011, 01:26 AM
Allesandro went out and began searching for weapons. He probably should have mentioned being a pure-blood, seeing that she wasn't a rebel. He could stay out till it got bright. However, he was hoping it wouldn't take that long. He went over to the rubble.
He began sifting through it, searching for weapons. He would need one if he was to be safe. He saw the handle of a sword and grabbed it. His hand immediately felt like it was on fire. He let go of the handle and examined his hand. The skin was horribly damaged and was bleeding. He tore some of his shirt off and wrapped his hand. After a few more minutes, he found a blade with no silver and sheathed it.
As he walked out of the rubble he looked around. He searched for the girl. He asked some of the few rebels in the area who she was, describing her perfectly. One of them spit at him. Another ignored. At last, someone said, in an angry tone, that her name was Mika. He went out and started to call her name. "Mika! I have some questions for you! Are you here!" Some people glared at him, he ignored them and kept calling.
08-07-2011, 02:22 AM
Mika sat alone on the curb of the street a million thoughts roaming through her head. She replaying the night she had met Alanoth. “Everyone gather in the garden I have someone you need to meet.” Mika’s father announced into the house where the 4 girls where sitting. The girls stand and walk outside and see their father speaking to a strange little boy. The two smaller girls’ stands there a little shocked. “Daddy who…who is he?” They mumbled very low and hide behind the blond hair girl. “Dad is that the orphan boy…the one that was causing trouble.” Their father turns and gives a stern look at her. The oldest of the girls walk forwarded her long black hair blew in the wind and her pale blue eyes shined in the moon light. “My name is Mika… and these are my sister’s.” she turns and gives them a mean look. “Don’t pay any attention to them there very rude.” The girl’s father smiles and pushes the scared little boy toward Mika. “Don’t be scared boy she will take good care of you.”
Suddenly Mika snaps back into reality in time to see Ajay walking up to her. His face was almost as down trot as hers, but she felt it wasn’t any of her business to ask. She felt lucky to have won the friendship of someone that almost had a similar story to her nightmare of a life. She could feel her sadness disappear well at less she tried to hide it from him. "How are you doing?" he asked with a forced smile. “I’m okay…..in pain but not dead thanks to you...” she says with a smile. Mika then stands up an brush her butt off and her legs from the dust and rubble that covered her. “I guess I need to be looking for a place to stay. “Chiffton had offered me to stay with him but since the building was destroyed I guess I’m stuck with nothing.” But her attention was taken away from Ajay as a strange man came running up to her. Mika stepped back a little she didn’t recognized the man and he had interrupted her conversation with Ajay. “Who are you?” she stands there with Ajay at her side.
08-07-2011, 02:32 AM
Allesandro had seen her and had ran up to her. He shook his head when she asked who he was. "I am Allesandro Benefici." he stated a bit disappointed that she hadn't recognized him. "Seeing as you don't recognize me, you probably never met me. However, you seem so familiar, I just have to ask. Do you know who I am? Think to before 2360. Do you know anything?" He was hoping she did. She possibly knew the answer to why he couldn't remember anything. "Does anything sound familiar?"
08-07-2011, 02:39 AM
AJay was about to offer her a place when the strange man he had seen earlier with Azura came forward. AJay didnt know him...so he probably wasnt a rebel...then again he didnt know..Azura had kept some odd company in the past. He could tell the guy was a pureblood but AJay didnt judge people. He just stayed silent and decided to see what he had to say to Mika. She didnt seem to recognize him either...odd. His little scuf with Kayli momentarily forgotten he regained some of his usual composure.
After the guy, Allesandro, began speaking AJay kinda thought he was crazy...but there was probably more to it.
Kayli had run home, not slowing till she was inside her appartment and breathing hard. This was it. She couldnt be a rebel anymore...she wasnt going to be a rebel anymore...she didnt want this life in the first place and getting killed was not in her future plans. All she wanted was to leave...
But AJay would be left defensless...she couldnt keep an eye on him, and he was going to the summit battle. She had to make sure he was safe...at any costs...
It was then that Kayli decided what she would do. Packing her stuff and some food she wrote AJay a quick note and left it on the fridge as always. Leaving the apartment she strode off into the city. She had deals to make...and after she made them she would probably never be able to come back...but AJay would be safe. As kayli kept walking she eventually disappeared into the city rush. Sunlight wouldnt hurt her afterall so she didnt need to find hiding.
08-07-2011, 02:51 AM
The way Chiffton answered all the questions made Kauska chuckle under his breath, followed by a quite whisper that someone, including a vampire, could only hear if they were standing right next to Kasuka's mouth. "....knew you would lie....but your body language gave me the truth....." He turned and looked at that people that were still alive, thinking they were lucky to survive and maybe him showing up and lighting up the build save some of their lives. That was a power he wish he had back when his home village was burnt to the ground. He was glad he helped to save some people but regreated the lives lost, but it would heal with time, like a bad cut. He listened to Chiffton's voice in the back ground after about a hour or so, only hearing him mention the name of another Rebel leader that was going to show up to help that was properly named as Shiba, thus which triggered a dark thought within Kasuka. '....planning on betraying them too, or putting in a position to die easy?....guess we will see soon enough.....'
As he walked slowly through the group of Rebels, he looked up to see the woman with the cut on her back, the same person he noticed from earlier that night when he was confronting Chiffton on what happened. He walked up to approach her from behind but another man ran up shouting "Mika". Kasuka figured that to be the females name so he moved to walk up to her face, right behind the man saying her "name". She addressed him in confusion with another male beside her. The look on Kasuka's face was that of kindness, for some strange reason he was tired of anger for the night and didn't want to draw his swords unless a life depended on it which meant either his or Marianna's. He let out a small laugh, "Seems like someone might need information....." He gestured to the man calling for the female he was now standing infront of. "Sorry for showing some sort of....concern, but you need that cut looked at seeing how it looks like it was done quick and cleanly.....How did you get it, if you don't mind me asking?" He searched his mind to try to answer the question himself but couldn't find anything that could. He just realized he didn't know the individuals before him so he took a small bow "Owh....how rude, I'm Kasuka, I was hired to help Chiffton with this little problem with the Pure's war." Letting out a tiny smile, letting the wind grab his hair making it look like a cape. "...and sorry for interupting your question sir." He addressed the person who called for Mika, taking a side step so not to be fully intruding. (sp?)

Mika stands there for a moment and replays the name in her head Allesandro Benefici.“Omg no it can’t be…..there’s no way I…I no it’s got be a different one.” She thought to herself. “I’m sorry I don’t have any idea… maybe you have me mixed up with someone else.” She turns toward Ajay and gives him a look of confusion. Then out of the corner of her eye she had seen the strange man that had attacked her. She could feel the rage building inside her, oh how she wanted to lash out at him, but she stood there quietly. “It was done by a coward that cuts and runs.” Mika had been hated by the rebels when she arrived, but know she was getting a lot of attention, but she went along with it scared she would trigger any memories Kasuka had of her.
She stared at the young man that had approached her first. “Again I’m very sorry that I can’t help you…” She then turned toward Kasuka “Yes it’s quite painful, but I have my friend here to take care of me.” She wraps her arms around Ajay and mumbles very low in his ear so the other wouldn’t hear. “ Can you please get me out of here I’m very weak and Kasuka is the lasted person I wanted to see right now.” She pulls back with a fake smile as she looked at the two men.
08-07-2011, 03:51 AM
Allesandro gripped the blade in his hand. It began to melt. He thought he had finally found a lead to his past. He tried to calm down. He took deep breaths, getting his power under control. He had destroyed the cloth in his hand. "Thank you." he said to Mika. "You just look so familiar. I thought you may have been from before I gained my amnesia. Anyway, just find me if you do know anything.
He walked off, throwing the now melted blade to the side. "Why?!" he shouted. He picked up his bag. All he wanted to know was what had happened in his past. He pulled the paper with the address out.
He found the building shortly later. He knocked on the door, hoping Azura was awake.
08-07-2011, 04:21 AM
"Yes and your going to need some blood, rest, and stitches maybe if it doesnt get any better. All of which you can get at my house...so lets get moving." AJay said smiling. He looked at Kasuka still smiling "Thanks for the concern though buddy. We will see you later."
AJay couldnt help watching Allesandro pitch his little fit. "Amnesia huh? Interesting..." he mumbled before putting an arm around Mika. He felt he could since she had hers around him. He could get use to this real quick he decided. Once they were away from everyone and walking down the street AJay started talking "Im serious about you being able to stay at my place. We have extra space and plenty of blood stocked."
08-07-2011, 05:52 AM
Azura's door was unlocked figuring after the fight at base the city would have an uneasy day of peace a note taped to the door.
Alex...come on in, just lock the door please :) Plenty of blood in the fridge...found some extra clothes that should fit you, left them on the kitchen table for you. Comfy warm bedrooms upstairs, get me if you need anything if not see you at dusk. -Azura
08-08-2011, 10:01 PM
Mika stands there arm warped around Ajay as the other gathered around them two. "Yes and you’re going to need some blood, rest, and stitches maybe if it doesn’t get any better. All of which you can get at my house...so let’s get moving." AJay said smiling. She watched him look at Kasuka still smiling "Thanks for the concern though buddy. We will see you later." Mika and Ajay began to walk away from the group. The strange name Allesandro danced around in her head as she started to worry. “There is no way that after hundreds of years he could have tracked me down…. It can’t be him…I wiped his memory and disappeared… the Allesandro I know….” Her mind stops wondering when she feels Ajay wrap his arm around her. She looks up at him with a smile.
“Thank you for that…I really really appreciate it….but now I need to be finding a places to stay..” She pulls away from Ajay and stares down at the ground. "I’m serious about you being able to stay at my place. We have extra space and plenty of blood stocked." Mika looks up at Ajay with a smile… “That’s very sweet but I don’t think your sister likes or even trust me... But if you’re sure I would really like that..” Mika smiles it had been a very long time since she had let her guard down, but there was just something about Ajay that made her actually feel like she use to when Alanoth and her use to play in the moonlight, back when she was a little girl with no worries. She wraps her arm back around Ajay.. “Now if you get me in trouble with your sister.. I’m blaming it all on you.” She says with a smile.
08-08-2011, 11:18 PM
"Eh Kayli is a nut sometimes and over protective but she has never been a trouble maker." he said with a grin "I think she already kinda pissed at me anyway so whats one more thing? "
After that Ajay guided Mika to his apartment. It wasnt much but it was light tight all but the kitchen and had plenty of places to sleep for guests...not that they had many guests. The appartment had one window in the front. You could usually just make out a small amount of light from the kitchen, Kayli usually left a light on for him no matter how mad she was but the entire place was dark.
"Odd..." he mumbled, letting go of Mika to pull out his key and unlock the door. Opening it he walked in and turned on the light in the living room. "Kayli, im home...Mika is staying too whether you like it or not."
No responce. Looking back at Mika he closed the door after she walked inside.
"Umm...well I know she isnt asleep yet, wouldnt be asleep this early ever. I was expecting a little blonde tornadoe when I said that actually." thinking about it for a moment he added "She might be out having a few drinks...she was pretty upset when she left earlier. Eh, she will come back. Lets go get you some blood and take a better look at that cut."
Leading the way into the kitchen he opened the fridge and pulled out a few blood bags setting them on the counter. Shutting the door he didnt once notice the new note on the fridge explaining Kayli's absence. Handing Mika a bag he said "You want a glass?" going ahead and pulling one from the cabinet. Pulling out a drawer after that he got out a first aid kit. Vampires healed quick but it was still a nasty looking cut.
08-09-2011, 12:00 AM
Mika walked into the abounded apartment with Ajay. It was cozy but it wasn’t home she could help but think. She stood there for a second while Ajay hollers for his sister and she gives him a light punch to the ribs when he shouted out“Mika is staying too whether you like it or not...” The silent apartment seemed to make Ajay a little uneasy. The look on his face was the one she had worn for a long time after the murder of her family, but now Mika embraced it and used it to plan and think. "Umm...well I know she isn’t asleep yet, wouldn’t be asleep this early ever. I was expecting a little blonde tornado when I said that actually.
She might be out having a few drinks...she was pretty upset when she left earlier. Eh, she will come back. Let’s go get you some blood and take a better look at that cut." Mika stands there listening and think of the strange man that had approached her, but suddenly snaps back. “Umm...Okay…. A blond tornado “She says with a smile “I was leaning more toward psychopath.” Mika follows Ajay into the kitchen and watches him pull out the blood. The red thick liquid filled the bags and made her smile. She looks up and nods when he asked her about the glass. She pours the blood into the glass and slowly sips it. The red goodness fells her mouth making her eyes go from there pale blue to a slight crimson shade.
She continues drinking as Ajay pulls out the first aid kit. “Thank you….I seriously oh you my life…Ajay…and now here you are about to bandage me up.” She lets out a little giggle and she wipes the blood that had run down the side of mouth. The slice was down her back and a little on her hip. “Well Doc where do you want me?” she says with a smile noticing a small paper.
08-09-2011, 12:20 AM
The sense of hate came from this Mika person towards himself, why he didn't know. Honestly, he didn't care, he was just trying to be nice and got it shoved in his face. '.....well....' He turned to leave the gathering, and as he walked, he wanted to bust Chiffton's balls some more but that would get old really quick. With a quick double step, a leap and a half twisted flip, He landed on a building that could over look the area. Once ontop of the building he began to pace and whisper to himself. "...what now?...I'm not going to chase after Marianna...I do care about her but something tells me to leave her be on this one....as for the assassin guy, I can't trace his scent down, the same about that earth person......something is digging at my brain about that Mika woman, could track her down easy...she is bleeding after all...." He stopped his pacing to look up at the night sky. "...what to do..."
As he gazed at the stars, his mind wondered less and less. The thoughts of what could be up there from what he heard when he was a child to now still gave him chills of excitment. He loved what he heard when he was a child, the stars were old powerful samurai that died in battle, with their legends so great, the gods gave stored their being and allowed them to live forever in the sky, the brighter the light, the more powerful they were. He knew that the story he grew up hearing was a lie, but deep down he knew it to be true, he just hoped it would be him up there some day living alongside the god-like warriors of his time. Kasuka gave a huge deep breath and kept his eyes up at the night sky, he let himself become one with the sky.
After standing there for a few minutes, he decided to head straight to the Capitol City where the Pure's will have their meeting. '....The sooner I kill them, the sooner I can leave this area and give Marianna the life she needs...' Quicker then he showed up on the roof, he was off, running at a decent pace to not wind himself, he moved fast.
08-09-2011, 03:02 AM
As Alanoth casually walked down the block, stalking his prey, he thought back. The meeting with Ramses had gone well, and now they were both up to speed as needed.
"Listen," Alanoth had said after explaining everything he had heard at the rebel meeting that Alanoth had infiltrated, "we need to act soon, because our attack was enough to stop them. They'll just be wanting revenge, and that means the attack on the capitol will happen sooner. Now, I need to take care of some business first, btu you need to track down every one of the rebel leaders involved in any way with the attack. Eliminate them, and I'm sure that we can halt their plans long enough to wipe them out. As soon as I'm done, I'll call you and join you in the hunt for the rebel leaders."
Alanoth snapped out of his flashback and continued following his target. The young woman seemed just like a distraught young woman, only she was a vampire-a fact not noticed by the very few people also on this street. He crossed over so he would be right behind her, and he casually walked up, acting like it wasn't his intention to get closer. When he was walking next to her, he looked over, and put on a shocked expression at her sorrowful look. Kayli was probably so distraught that she might believe anything, as long as it provided some sort of comfort.
"Hey, what's wrong kid? Running away from home or something? Because you look like you need someone to talk to."
08-09-2011, 03:04 AM
AJay couldnt help but take the way Mika said that as a bit flirtatious. Instead of saying that though he just sorta got a goofy grin. "Think you would be more comfortable standing or laying down?"
He went ahead and put a hand on her shoulder and turned her so he could look. The blood she had drank was already helping the wound to heal but it did need to be cleaned up so it would heal without a scar. It took a lot to scar a vampire but it wasnt impossible.
"Lucky lucky...I dont think you will need stitches after all if you keep drinking." he said brushing a hand down her arm and taking her hand to turn her back around before moving to pop open the first aid kit. Picking out some anticeptic and some of that new skin super glue to stop bleeding and seal wounds he said "Doctor AJays in the house..."
"Back off rat bastard....ive got places to go. If you dont want to atleast be missing a fang i would shut it..." Kayli snapped at the man who walked up to her. She was going to the capitol, she was going to find one of the pureblood leaders, she was going to switch sides...whatever she had to do to get AJay pardoned and not killed.
She kept walking, her blue eyes sore from fighting tears and her emotions a melting pot of sorrow and anger. Her brother was fool for joining the rebels and she was a fool for following him. She wouldnt allow herself or her only family to get killed. When the guy didnt instantly back off Kayli stopped walking and glared at him.
"Unless you can get me a seat with a powerful pureblood of some sort your worthless to me and I dont want to talk so back the fuck off!" she yanked her gun and stuck it to his head then, she looked a bit wacked out.
08-09-2011, 03:45 AM
Alanoth acted shocked at first, but then calmed and smiled. He held his hands out in a friendly, harmless motion-hamrless, until he swiped the gun out of her hand and threw it across the streeet faster than even a pureblood vamp could blink. He looked her straight in the eye, still smiling, and spoke calmly and casually.
"I believe," Alanoth began, feeling more confident in himself than earlier, "that I can help you with that. I know I don't look it, with a leather trenchcoat and no weapon or flashy things on me, but I'm actually the son of a wealthy, albeit deceased, pureblood who had great influence here in the AVN. I can help you get whatever you need, all I need is your cooperation. Follow through, don't point another weapon at me, and your brother and any rebels who you favor will not be harmed, simply given light jail time and then sent home like nothing happened. Sound tempting?"
Now was the moment of truth, the time to see if he could tell a good lie or not. He had chloroform with him in case she refused and resisted, because he would need her alive as bait if he couldn't win her over. Her want of getting some sort of good fortune for her brother-as he imagined is what she wanted-was something he could get, but wasn't actually interested in giving. He simply had to wait for her to think about it and respond.
08-09-2011, 04:03 AM
Kayli did not like being disarmed and that pissed her off more then anything. Her lip curling back in what would have been a snarl if she had fangs...but it wasnt near as effective since she didnt have them. Listening to him she wanted to tell him he was a lying cheat who was trying to take advantage of her but that just didnt seem fitting...he was offering her help after all...
"Im getting my gun and if you try to stop me I will shoot you. You can move your hand faster but I know I can run faster...ive yet to meet someone I couldnt outrun so just dont move and perhaps this can turn friendly." she said and instead of sprinting off after her gun she casulely walked around him and picked it up holstering it. Walking back she stood infront of him and crossed her arms.
"Answer a few questions...one, how did you know I was looking to get AJay pardoned? Two, who exactly are you? Three, why were you following me? You had to have been to know what you do. Lastly, who could you get me a seat with?" Pausing she remained looking fairly hostile "Answer."
08-09-2011, 04:18 AM
Alanoth sighed, feigning defeat. He had actually hoped that she would suspect him, its the only way his plan would work. He had to gain her trust, and sometimes, the truth is the best lie.
"Well, you've figured me out, sort of. I will answer your questions, but not in order. In answer to your second question and your last question, my name is Alanoth, half-blood, and assassin for the purebloods, currently in service of the heads of the AVN. I work for the three brothers that the rebellion hopes to defeat, and I can get you an audience with them or any of the leaders of the AVN. In response to your third question, I was following you because I saw you as one of the rebels leaving the hideout that my partner in crime leveled. I needed to know who you were, though I already have my suspiscions. Finally, in answer to question number one, I know that what you want is your brother pardoned because I know what the rebels are up to...and I know that your brother is involved."
All through his answers, Alanoth remained calm, friendly, and seemingly harmless. He could take her down easily a great number of ways, so her gun was of no threat to him. He had no idea what powers she had-if any-but he wasn't worried, after all, he had once killed a pureblood traitor in single combat. He was more than a match for her.
"So," Alanoth said, his hands behind his back, "Does that answer all of your questions? If so, I have a question for you. How much do you love your brother?"
08-09-2011, 04:56 AM
"I love him enough to betray every one I have ever met, everyone who has taken some sort of care of me, everyone I would consider a friend. I would wear their blood before I saw him killed." she said then she suddenly made the turn from distraught to somewhat level headed "In fact I love him enough to go as far as have one of the purebloods turn me full vamp if they wanted...it can happen after all... I would even let you turn me if thats what it would take to convince you to hook me up." then her look actual turned to level and calm as she seemed to raise the stakes in her head each time. "I love him enough to die for him." it was all the truth too. She had basically listed off everything she could be asked to do...so she wasnt afraid.
She was considering everything he had answered and it all made perfect sense, he wasnt trying to hide anything either from what she could tell.
"If your in with the Saxtons and I can convince them to pardon AJay of the death sentence I would do anything." she said then she seemed to physically loosen up for the first time and she smirked. "Ok Alanoth, prove you have the connections and we can start dealing..."
(last post of the night...need mika for ajay before i can end this night and time skip to the next, hopefully i can do that tomorrow. night all.)
08-09-2011, 05:44 AM
Mika stands up and grips the chair as she fells Ajay softly touch her skin. "Lucky lucky...I don’t think you will need stitches after all if you keep drinking." She smiles trying not to let on she was enjoying the close contact a little more then she should have been. She jumps a little as he applies the antiseptic and some of that new skin super glue.
“Wow you are a really good doctor...” she says with a smile as she moves and sits back down and finishes the glass of blood. She had started feeling better and a little more comfortable. She watches as Ajay puts away the first aid kit. “So where am I going to be sleep at today. The sunlight didn’t bother her, and she liked the warm sensation on her skin which for those couple of minutes made her feel almost normal. She reaches up and takes her hair down letting it fall down her back.
She hardly ever let her hair down because her father use to pull it when he was scolding her for either a bad fight or for not taking care of her sister. After years of it happening she saw it as a weakness and started to ware it up. She looks over her shoulder at Ajay waiting for his answer.
08-10-2011, 03:57 AM
AJay smiled when she mentioned he was a good doctor. "Thanks...I tend to have to patch myself up after stuff, Kayli isnt so gentle...and I do prettier stitches when their needed."
Putting away the first aid kit and getting a glass of blood for himself, AJay heard Mika ask about where she would sleep. He thought about it for a moment. There was his bedroom, Kayli's, and a sofa and hide-a-bed in the living room. Somehow he didnt feel right making a guest sleep in the living room, particularly one he was getting a bit fond of.
"Well...you can sleep in my room if you want. Its probably the most comfortable. I can pull the hide a bed out for myself." Smiling he added "My rooms clean and I actually just changed the sheets this morning."
He wasnt lying either. AJay was a bit of a clean freak when it came to the apartment...something he had picked up from his mother as a kid. His room was equally as spotless, unusual for most young men but AJay had always been a little different.
08-10-2011, 04:34 AM
As he made his way to the outskirts of town, Kasuka decided to walk and not run to enjoy the sounds of the world around him. It has been a great while since he just 'heard nature' and enjoyed her company. Loving every second of it, he found himself walking slower and slower to the point he just stopped walking. He became addicted to the smell of mother nature and her beautiful sounds, allowing her to fully surround his senses. Suddenly, it was all taken away when a siren with red and blue flashing lights came from behind Kasuka. '.....when I found a small portion of peace tonight, you had to ruin it...thank you very much....' He turned around and got a very bright light shined into his face from the squad car, as two officers walked out of the vehicle. "Sir....you know it's dangerous out here at night...let alone someone like you?" He knew he wasn't refering to him being a vampire. They thought he was a wealthy person who they found on the side of the road in the middle of the woods.
"Owh....I know that officers....I've walked this way before and know what places to avoid." He smiled, trying to lie his way out of this, but he expected them to draw their guns once they saw his swords, which were illegal to be carried outside. "Well Sir, I'm going to have to ask for you I.D......" The officer said straight to Kasuka's face while his partner circled behind Kasuka to look him over. "....." Kasuka began to pat his pockets and smiled back to the officers. "...I..." He began to chuckle, "....Don't have it on me....." The first officer pulled out a pen and pad, "....Your name will work...." So Kasuka replied with the answer, spelling out his name. Both officers gave each other a "what the hell" look as he said his name which made Kasuka laugh. "....It's Japanese....."
As the First officer moved to the squad car to radio back to dispatch to see if Kasuka had "anything on him", the second officer began to ask random questions to Kasuka like, "Why you out so late? Where you going?" and the like. "I just wanted to go for a walk, going no where really, just a nightly walk is all." After a few minutes the first cop came back scracthing his head. "Well....um....Ka-zoo-cha...." The cop had trouble saying his name, "...we have no information of you on our system....seems your a ghost of sorts...." Giving a little laugh, he replied, "You have no idea...haha" All three stood there for a few moments looking at each other, Kasuka not taking his eyes away from the first cop. "So....I guess we have to take you to the station for the night, just to make sure your telling the truth....not that we don't believe you Sir, it's just that your not in the system is all."
Kasuka understood, but he wasn't wanting to be arressted so they could "look" for his information, if they did, he would bleed both cops dry on the spot, take the car and drive to Capitol City. Yet the thought vanished when he saw that the second cop, the youngest of the two had a wedding ring on. "You Sir....how long you been married if you don't mind me asking? Any kids?" The Cop smiled, "Yeah 2 kids, both girls, twins actually...and about a year now." "You are a lucky man to have that much love around you....." Kasuka turned to the first cop. "....Let me walk...I have done nothing wrong to warrent me being arrested...." The first officer shrugged. "Not much I can do in this situation Mister....we have to take you to the station."
'Crap....my swords alone will get me in more trouble then anything, and I'm not going to kill them to just leave here.....' "Ok...." Kasuka walked over to the squad car and placed his hands palms down on the hood. "...but I have to warn you....it's going to get very foggy soon..." and before either cop could get there hand-cuffs out, a fog blinded them both and Kasuka took off down the road quicker then he was running before. "Now I'm going to become a wanted individual....avading aresst plus what ever they want to throw on me." He didn't stop running until he reached a old home just off the side of the road that was buried by fallen trees. He was glad he found it since the sun was just starting to creep up.
08-11-2011, 01:43 AM
Allesandro read the note quickly. "New clothes?" he questioned and looked down. His shirt was burnt and torn. His shorts were tattered and bloody from his hand. Even his sandals had a broken strap or two. "Oh, thats what she meant. I think I'll just wear my suit."
He opened the door and took his backpack off' He closed and locked the door once inside. He looked around. "Nice place." he murmured and searched for a room. Once he found one, he put on his black suit. He slipped his shoes on and walked around. "Never going to stay out of this for so long." he felt his scar. He still wondered how he got it.
He stepped out of the room and headed toward the kitchen. He took a blood packet out of the fridge and drank it quickly. He stared at his hand. He had wrapped it in what was left of his shirt. "Have to be more careful in the future."
08-13-2011, 01:04 AM
Mika smiles at Ajay “ Yes that would be fine I’ll take your room.” She stands up and strenches slightly not to hurt her freshly bandaged wound. She brush her long black hair out of her eyes and puts it behind her ear. “ But first I would really like to take a shower and get out of these blood clothes before I go climbing into you nice clean room.” She littles out a little gigle when she said it.
The tought of a powerful guy still finding time to wash clothing and makes beds was so different from what she had grown up in. Mika had always been told the woman was the property of the man that was picked for her, and it was her job to clean, cook, and deal with the children. However, Mika’s dad who was taken by Mika’s ablity to be a warroir and her unbounding sprit lead him to train her making her one of a very few female pure blood warriors. She stands there a moment watching Ajay drink. “ So could you please point me in the direction of my room and the bathroom.” She stands there with her hands on her hips and a unpatient stare on her faces. She couldn’t believe how comfortable she felt around him.
It was strange that someone like her could fall for someone like him but, everything was different now, and for onces she was actually smileing and laugh something she had not done in a while.
Death of Korzan
08-13-2011, 06:39 PM
His fingers tapped the golden throne he sat in, his tanned skin was being brushed by the cool breeze of the South-Eastern AVN, his other hand pressed against his temple. As his fingers touched the chair, small bits of grass seemed to branch out of the metal, a natural effect from the life-bringer. He stood from his chair, his wizened mind reaching out into what would happen. “3000 years…” The ancient clan leader spoke, his powerful voice echoing through the dry air of ‘The Pyramid of Osiris’. “Things are in motion.” Osiris himself spoke, an audience of guards and nobles stood in front of him. “300 years ago, the Sang de Mort, tried to relinquish our very existence, but we pushed them back.” Osiris gloated on past victories. “Now we are under attack from petty Rebels.” He laughs and lifts his hands, 2 small saplings burst out of the ground underneath them, slowly crawling upwards. “You are all strong, you will defeat them, in the name of Osiris!” He raised his voice and it was met with a roar of revenge and malice, bursting through the pyramid like a rocket. A young vampire stood next to Osiris. “My liege, what would you have me do.”
“Set…” Osiris whispered. “We’re going to have company, great her for me…”
The top of the Cathedral felt cold, the darkness of night shrouded Ramses’s figure, although the raising sun on the horizon was lighting up the city of Yellville, smoke was bleeding from afar, the ruined base of the rebels, he had killed many of them and as his armor began to fall off of him and run away with the wind, it revealed his face, there was no emotion behind his eyes but lust, lust for his betrothed. He would get her, and she would join him.
08-13-2011, 11:24 PM
Azura was showered and ready to make the trip to the finger tip by the time it the sun only just started to set. Wearing her usual skin tight black pants and tank top, she also put on a sheer gold sarong skirt; covering her right side while clasped together on her left hip with the Egyptian clan's seal. Her hair elegantly styled and the Egyptian golden necklace with jewels around her neck. Finally a golden tiara so no one wouldn't dare question who she was.
Arriving at the fingertip she took a deep breath, standing up straight in her hooded cloak she entered the main gates that towered high infront of her. Giving the appearance of pure power. Once inside the entry zone, she removed the cloak already feeling eyes on her as she approaches the guards. "High Lady Azura here to speak to Osiris...he is expecting me I am sure."
"He has been expecting you for hours, my lady." A young voice protruded the air, Set emerged behind Azura. "I am Set, come with me please..." Set began to walk forward, his arms wrapped behind his back elegantly, he was clearly young, no older than 200, younger than 250. "If you would, please tell me my lady." Set didn't take his eyes off of his path. "How are you still alive?" Set asked. "The people of The Fingertip believed you dead, Osiris himself thought the Sang de Mort had slain you in cold blood, and why do you wish to return now?" The market was bustling at this time, with all the pureblood traders out, the daylight was beaming, it was early morning and the birds were already crowing.
Walking along side Set, Azura knew that the most important question would arise sooner than later. So it was no surprise when Set asked: "How are you still alive?" ...."The people of The Fingertip believed you dead, Osiris himself thought the Sang de Mort had slain you in cold blood, and why do you wish to return now?"
Walking through the market place, beginning to climb the Grand Stairs leading up to the daunting pyramids. "After the trials before the High Roman Council where I was deemed innocent there were far too many hunters pureblood and otherwise, after me. With the sister borderlands opened back up it was deemed by my father Elder Lord Murick and Osiris that I would be best kept safe here in the AVN as a sleeper with the rebels. Ramses attacked the headquarters in Yellville 2 nights ago. Slaughtering many and showing the large crack of distrust in the rebels. Something I was waiting for...for 300 years...and now it's time to return here where I belong to show the rebel past to Osiris. I will allow him to do the Sacred Truth of Thoughts so he may see into my mind..."
Reaching the top of the stairs Azura looked at the 4 pyramids a sight she has truly missed, it wasn't the sacred ones in Egypt...but it was close.
"Hmmm, that makes sense." Set admired Ramses, he wanted to be just as powerful, but there was something about him, a malevolent aura that seemed to throw the enemies and Ramses's Admirers into disarray. "I take it you love him with all of your heart?" The pyramids loomed over them. "That is why you are willing to take the Truth of Thoughts?"
"I would die for him and this clan if it meant his and everyone's safety." Was all Azura had to say to Set; the absolute truth. Entering the largest pyramid, the pyramid of royalty, Azura walked tall along side Set. Hips swaying with each step with her long hair brushing her back like silk in the breeze. Finally entering the thone room she saw the waiting Osiris. Reaching the base of the steps leading to the leader sitting on his throne Azura placed her right fist softly over her upper left chest while giving a curtsy bow. "Osiris...."
"Do not coax me with your prudent virtues Azura, I know why you have come." Osiris still rests on his throne, his head in his hands. "He is not here." He stands and places his hand on the females shoulder. "You were right to come." He places his other hand on her temple and closes his eyes, a set of vines reach from out of the ground and wrap themselves around Azura's arms, holding her in place. "This won't hurt, much..."
Azura held as still as a statue eyes closed as she opened her mind to his. Not showing any resistance as he search to fill the void of her absence the last 300 years.
Flashes of her father telling her of Osiris and his decision to send her to the AVN rebels as a sleeper....her emotions high as she wasn't allowed to tell Ramses at all but accepted her assignment for her protection and to serve her betrothed Egyptian clan well. Feeling the leader search further following the timeline of moving into her current house she resides in, her first meeting being introduced to the rebels as a powerfull alli by the female who still resides as second in command. The recently deseased Fulton pleased with her presense but Chiffton was very suspisious something that never left him through the centuries. Moving foward showed each assasination of purebloods and others she has successfully killed. But each one she made sure had no connection to Osiris's clan or hers...Azura made sure each kill counted for her and those she was protecting. Finally Osiris stopped to her memory of Ramses sitting in the chair in her bedroom as they discussed things....their love proved stronger than imaginable. Then the ambush...the blood and battle that resulted in the destruction of the Yellvill's headquarters...the death of Fulton she discovered...the loyalty of the one named Alex that he owed his life to her....
Finally feeling the vines retract from her arms; the Truth of Thoughts was over...how long it took she didn't know nor cared...her loyalty to Osiris was shown as steedfast as it was back then. Looking into his eyes waiting for him to speak.
"It is good to have you back..." Osiris looked straight at the females eyes. "But do you still fight for them?" Osiris turned, his robe brushing against the moss covered floor at the foot of his throne. "Every pureblood you have killed has been an injury to our forces, we are at war and too many of our weak spawn are rebelling." Osiris sat on his throne and looked back at the female. "Do you still fight against your own kind? Or have you come to join me and fight the rebel scum?"
'My kills were calculative to make sure it effected your forces in the least way possible Osiris...and seeing that the rebels are just as weak, deceptive, and unorganized as they were 300 years ago I did return to you. To end my sleeper mission and permanently join you to end the rebellion once and for all. Even to finally wed Ramses as soon as you like...I would even like to permanently stay here and sell my house. I have nothing back in Yellville anymore. My eternal future is here" Azura spoke with the purest of truth to him. A soft smile to Osiris as she always was close to him.
Osiris laughed and stood, opening his arms out. "Come to me Azura, I will call for Ramses as soon as possible, your wedding will be finished and you will finally be bonded as one." This marked the beginning of a new day as Azura joined the forces of the Purebloods...
[A joint collaberation with Death of Korzan...yes its huge but we felt it would be easier then back and forth forever.]

(you also moved on to the next day/night which is what I wanted to do anyway so thank you...)
AJay wiped a bit of blood from his mouth and smiled at Mika. "Sure showers right this way." He took her hand again and led her down the hall opening the door for her. "Towels are in the little closet and my room is right across the hall."
With that he left Mika to shower. Invading his sisters room he found some extra clothes and some pj's that looked like they would fit Mika, left them folded in a basket by his door with a note, then went and pulled the hide a bed out in the living room. He was exhausted...and before he could even yawn sleep took him.
He woke with a start the next night. Nightmares...people dying everywhere. Getting up he went into the kitchen and sat down at the table with the light on. He was shaking a bit but calmed himself. He didnt know how long he sat there before he realized it was full dark...he would need to meet back up with the rebels soon. He had found a text message on his phone telling him to meet back at the destroyed hide out so Chiffton could take them to their new hide away...they would also meet Shiba there.
Getting up he went to the fridge for some blood. He noticed Kayli wasnt awake, weird...she also hadnt woke him the previous day to ask why he was on the hide a bed, weird. He wasnt going to put any stock into all the weirdness until he spotted a note on the fridge. It was in Kayli's handwirtting...he must not have seen it the night before. Pulling it off he read in, froze, and let it fall to the ground as he took off running through the apartment and busting open kaylis door. She really wasnt there...
"Oh shit!" she snapped, shutting the door a bit hard before walking quickly back to the kitchen and picking the note up. He read it again.
You know I love you and would do anything to keep us safe...your an idiot, so im doing the only thing I can do...Im going to make a deal. I wont see you killed.
It was so vauge he didnt have the slightest clue where to start looking for her or anything...
Kayli was now walking the streets with Alanoth. It had been tricky but he did have the proper connections and he had promised her a seat with the Saxtons themselves. She just had to stick with him for a while...help him with his missions...be a traitor...
She could handle that.
At the destroyed rebel hide out Chiffton stood looking at the rubble. Some of the survivors had arrived and were pacing nervously. It was going to be an unusual night to say the least. As he stood there Chiffton felt Shiba approach. She was immune to his mind abilities...a rather rare talent...and she felt like a dead space in the air to him.
Turning around he nodded to her in greeting. "Shiba."
"Hello Chiffton." her tone was brisk as she surveyed the destroyed building. "You certainly do need my help dont you..."
Shiba had sharp little green eyes that watched everything. Her usually spiked up red hair was brushed over to one side and gelled down tonight, adding to her slim sleek appearence. She was tight red leather and spandex, a typical outfit. Her black boots adding a little flare, matching her black belt, and breaking up the sea or red. She was naturally very pale, and had bright red lipstick on with dark eye makeup.
Chiffton just frowned at her. "Yes, help is nice...but needed, no..."
Shiba just smirked. "Lets just get the rebels to a new hide away and figure out what we will do next."
"I think we should let them after there murderers...for one this ramses fellow...he is the only attacker that we have managed to surely identify." Chiffton suggested. Shiba seemed to think about it for a while before nodding.
"For once I agree...if he can cause this much damage hes better off dead in my book..." the red head stated, Chiffton just smiled. "Plus Analies said you were the man with the plan...so I guess that was an order to listen to you oh all mighty Chiffton."
His smiled disappeared at her sarcasm but the blonde didnt warrent the woman a responce. He just continued waiting for the other rebels to arrive.
(getting this party a rollin again...)

As the day faded into night, Kasuka was on the move once more with a quickness. Thanks to that little off to the side building he found, he was able to sleep through the day and avoid the cops from the night before. He wasted too much time with them, let alone wasted too much time that night. He could have saved his "nature" walk for this night but he was behind his schedule and he didn't like it. So he picked up the pace, not allowing anything to slow him down as he ran ever so gracefuly through the trees. In a few hours time, he was on the outskirts of the City he was told the "Saxton brothers" would be located. He didn't fully trust that information but it was all he could go off of at the moment. He hated the idea of this war, Pure blooded Vampires deciding that Half-Bloods and Mades were no better the humans, saying that their lives were forfit. The only time it's okay to kill is to protect what you love and the Pures were doing this out of hate, or due to possible threats that they think they see. Kasuka fought to protect, he fought for his loved ones, and now he has someone to fight for now.....Marianna. He swore to protect her until his last breath, and if ending this war did that then he would end it.
He walked calmly into the City, not seeing anything that wasn't out of place, the average couple going to a movie or dinner, or coming back from either, the city bum talking to himself or that wall he was facing, the street animal that darted between allys. '....not going to see much from down here....' So with a quick jump, he was on the closest building. He moved once more, from building to building, looking, watching, trying to find any sign of Vampires. '....this is one big City....' He only stopped to change direction or to look around to see if he was being watched. Running and jumping until he reached the downtown area, he began to slow things down a bit. Looking harder for clues that could lead him to any vampire, made or half would do find. If he found one, he could twist there arm in such a way that sooner or later he would find a Pure blood, then....to the Brothers.
Kasuka got low, his eyes became like that of a hawk, ears and nose like a dogs, pushing his senses to their limits to find any signs.....The hunt was now on.
08-14-2011, 07:53 PM
Allesandro wandered the house. He had just woken up and was a little bored. He remembered what Azura told him. Keep an eye on things in the Rebellion. He shrugged. He kept thinking about Mika. She was so famailiar, but she never met him apparently. He dwelled on this for a bit. He decided to visit the rubble that was once the rebel base.
He opened the door and stepped out. He had dressed into his suit. He pulled his tie a bit, then got on his way. He arrived at the base very shortly. He looked around. Some people were here, rebels mostly. He went to the rubble and dug through it a bit. He found another weapon and put it on his side. Just another sword as last time.
The blonde man from the other day was there. He shrugged and looked around. No one else he recognized was there. He looked at his hand. It hurt still. He absolutely hated silver. Completely messed up how his hand looked. He rapped it back up and just sat down, watching everyone who walked by.
08-15-2011, 07:20 AM
Mika leans over an injured man in a comma like state “Allesandro this is my entire fault…. I’m the reason you join this stupid game…. Alanoth is missing and they can’t find him anywhere he could be somewhere hurt or dead .“ She runs her hand throw his hair. “ I’m so sorry my love….but I can’t let this happen again I lost Alanoth, but I want watch you die like this.” She slowly bends down to his ear and whisper. “I’m a lost memory that you will never find…. I will never let you die so by doing that I want let you remember me…” Mika watches his eye’s flutter and a tear drops down her face. She wraps him in a gaze that covers his face and destroys everything about him and about them and has him sent away.
Suddenly Mika awakes to a loud noise coming from outside the room. Mika lies back down and wipes the tears from her eyes. Her phone buzzes on the table but she ignores it. The name the man had giving her had brought back some painful memories she had locked away and had hoped to never unlock. “It can’t be him…. I wiped his memories I took his identity how could he find me…. There’s no way its him.” Then she heard another loud noise coming from the kitchen. She stands up and walks to the door and opens it. She stands in the door way with a pair of shorts and tank top on that he had laid out for her.
Not seeing Ajay she makes her way throw the house, until she sees him in the kitchen in a panic. “Ajay what’s going on? Is everything okay? I heard a lot of noise coming from in here.” She stands in the door frame of the kitchen watching him.
08-15-2011, 03:32 PM
As Alanoth walked down the street with Kayli towards a motel, he smiled on the inside. His plan was going perfectly, and he had even managed the bonus objective of having Kayli leave a message stating that she had abandoned the rebels for his sake. They were now headed to a motel so that they could contact the Saxtons and set up a meeting. When they got to the office, Alanoth paid for two rooms, adjacent of course, and then they set up in their respective rooms.
Alanoth pulled out a cell phone after letting Kayli settle in her room, and he first sent a text message to Ramses. Ramses would proably want to know where Alanoth was, so Alanoth told Ramses his location and plan. Then, he dialed the number he had been told to only dial if it was extremely important. It was, so the Saxtons' secretary quickly transeferred his call to their office.
"Yes?" he heard three voices all ask at once.
"Hello, milords, this is Alanoth Bloodvane, your hired assasin."
"How can-""We help you-""Master Bloodvane?" was the sentence that was said by each brother in turn through the phone line.
"I have recently found a rebel who is willing to defect, and provide some valuable information for a very sttep set of conditions. One of the conditions is a private audience with you."
08-16-2011, 10:17 PM
"A private audience? are we really suppose to do this?""If she could be useful its a wonderful idea.""I find it degrading.""You find everything degrading.""Silence."there was a long quiet pause. "We are a bit nervous Alanoth, see another field agent of ours is having some minor difficulties. Those will be sorted out soon enough, but its making us restless.""Except for you brother, your always so calm.""Quiet. Alanoth, do you really believe she could be that useful? What makes you think she wont turn on us as quickly as she did the rebels?""Genius brother.""Quiet." the other end of the line finally fell silent for alanoth to speak. It was a good sign that the brothers hadnt simply refused, but they were always cautious about who was let into their circle.
Kayli flopped down on the bed in her room. Alanoth had told her to stay put and that he had to make a private call. She figured that he was setting up her meeting. Sighing she waited.
AJay looked a bit lost for a moment before registering Mika at the door to the kitchen. He took a deep breath to calm himself before looking at her. "I know why Kayli didnt come back..." he said handing the note to Mika "Shes absolutely lost it. I have no clue where she is either...ill need help finding her."
He was hoping Mika might help him but he didnt think that would be enough eyes looking. He would have to see if any of the other rebels would help him, then again that idea would be left up chiffton now.
08-17-2011, 09:31 PM
Alanoth had suspected that the brothers might have inquiries, and he was prepared for this. He knew that Kayli had good info, just not exactly how much and what. He knew that she had met many of the leaders, and a number of the grunts and other soldiers, so names and locations were good.
"I do believe that she will be quite useful, after all, she's been to all of their meetings, met all of their leaders, and knows the names and faces as well as strengths and weaknesses of most of the Rebellion's members. I know she won't turn on us because of the blackmail that she has put over her own head. Her brother is a member of the resistance, and she cares for him greatly. She wants to meet with you all privately so that she can negotiate a pardon for her brother as well as safety for them both when this is all over. Family is a great motivator, don't you agree?"
When he was finished, Alanoth simply waited silently. Having told them exactly what he knew they would want, he knew it wouldn't take long for a response. All he needed was for them to accept, meet with her, give her what she wants in exchange for what they want, and then Ajay would be easy pickings.
08-18-2011, 04:50 AM
Mika read the letter and looked up at Ajay, with a worried expression. “Ajay…. She isn’t going to just walk in there and beg for your life, it doesn’t work like that. The brothers will only accept respected members….. She is going to get herself killed.” Mika stood there for a moment trying to decide what to do. She had fought so hard to forget her past life and start a new, but once she got comfortable she was going to be thrown right back into her past.
“Ajay…. I was one of their top warriors I know how they operate I know the city…. I can help you find her, but we can’t bring anyone with us into the city… If she is there she is not alone and will be watched like a hawk...” She walks over to Ajay and touches him very lightly on his shoulder. “It’s up to you…but I can get you and me into the city.” She then kisses his cheek “Ajay where going to find her I promise… I know how they work. She is now an asset not a threat she is out of harm’s way.” She walks back into Ajay’s bedroom and starts to get dress but stops and sits on the bed and places her head in her hands and lets out a sob. Trying not to be heard by Ajay but her mind was flooded with only thoughts of her past, Images of her family, images of Alanoth. “How could I just stand there and let him run out of my life again….Why. Why didn’t I just go with him? “She wipes her face and finish getting dress.
She sees her bag lying in the corner of the room and walks over unstrapping it. Inside were still the maps of the Capital city she went over it looking at every inch of it. “ I got to get her back for Ajay….I can’t let him feel the loneliness I have endured.”
08-18-2011, 09:23 PM
As light began to filter through the thick foliage of the swamp, illuminating just how murky Marianna's surroundings were, the girl sought shelter.
Marianna didn't sleep for a moment that day. She'd found cover, huddled in the hollowed out trunk of a dead tree that still stood. It protected her from the sun, if she kept her legs pulled tight and close to the rest of her body. Instead of sleep, Marianna stared wide-eyed but unseeing out into the wilderness around her. Marianna didn't know how to fight, and it wasn't a skill she liked the thought of. But she had to be of more use to the rebellion. To her friends... So she worked her only asset, her mental abilities. For hours, she just let her mind drift, absently acknowledging the minds within range, the hundreds of animals. Then she stretched her mind a little farther. And a little farther... She worked her mind to the point of exhaustion, increasing the range at which she could mentally detect and reach out to other minds. It would take some more work to keep improving, but in the peace that Marianna found in the swamp, she found herself working a little better than in the cramped environment of a city.
She knew that she was tired, and concluded that it was probably adrenaline that kept her awake through the day. Whatever it was, Marianna had the chance to explore her telepathic abilities, more than she ever had whilst in Yellville, or in the servitude of other vampires; the pure-bloods. Slowly, she began to explore the idea of actually searching someone's mind, not just brushing the surface thoughts. She pushed into the minds of nearby animals, trying to see what they had seen, trying to... see their memories. It was difficult, and Marianna quickly felt the dull throbbing of a coming migraine in her temples. But it was something she worked on through the day, as the sun moved across the sky. And it was something that she started to have a bit of success with. It was another thing she'd have to work on...
The sun set that night, and Marianna began to make her way back towards Yellville. She had no trouble figuring out which way to go; she just knew. It was slow going, the girl was exhausted and hungry. But she didn't mind... She took the time to take in her surroundings. Travelling as a cat, she could see very well. She could see the stars in the sky, and the bats darting through the sky. More so, she could sense the animal minds; those who were peacefully sleeping, and those whose lives existed like hers; in the night. She was running on empty, and instead of subconciously blocking all of the minds around her like she usually did, they were all flitting across her conciousness, like staring out the window of a moving car. She actually quite liked it. She found herself stumbling along as a girl again, just because her mind was more open that way. And that was how she arrived back in Yellville, as a young girl who had run off and spent the day in a swamp. She was pretty filthy, and probably smelt pretty bad (The swamp was an acquired smell...) but she didn't worry about any of that. As she headed home, she noticed that some things had changed. She could tell that Kasuka was gone. He was no longer in town... She had a feeling she knew where he could have gone, but she didn't know, really. She also sensed, vaguely, that many of the remaining rebels were meeting back at the old base, turning to Chiffton. She figured that she should, as well. At least to find out what had happened to everyone, before she decided what to do.
Marianna spent a short amount of time at the old meat-packing plant she called home, changing into a plain red dress, that fluttered around her knees as if carried by a breeze that wasn't there. She boldly gripped the blade Kasuka had given her, carrying it in her hand with no attempt to hide it. Though she was almost proud of herself, having figured a little out about her powers all by herself, she wasn't exactly in the greatest of moods. She wasn't only tired and hungry; her friends had been attacked. The rebellion had been attacked, which was expected... But their faction hadn't done much, and too many people had died. She was pissed, and wasn't trying to hide it. She was also scared, and as she made her way to the old base, didn't bother trying to act like a child, like she usually did. She'd be blunt that night...
Marianna arrived at what had, only last night, been their meeting place. She didn't really interact with anyone, but lurked around the edge of the rubble, just watching. She remembered the people she had felt pass on last night, and tears filled her eyes. She could feel similar pain and anger leaking from the people around her, but she didn't look into it. She was in her own world, as much as she could be. Though she didn't approach him, Marianna watched Chiffton. He was pretty much the only one to take control, with Futon gone. She would see what he planned to do next, and decide her own actions from there.
Death of Korzan
08-21-2011, 08:47 PM
‘We need you back Ramses, personal matters…’
That was what the mind message from his lord had said, as the trees that he had crossed a few days ago welcomed him into the shadowed forest back in the direction of the fingertip, he felt the wolves of the night running alongside him again, he had caused much death in the last few days, but it was not a new feeling, death seemed to follow Ramses hollow shell, the only emotion within him for his love and his clan. There was not much that he desired more than to be with Azura for the rest of his days, that was his only dream and to fulfill it, Ramses would die a happy vampire. “Hopefully I don’t have any puny Rebels trying to attack me this time.” Ramses chuckled under his breath. The trees stared ahead of him, a gloomy site as they saw the slightly tanned vampire flit through their encroaching branches.
The yelling of a vampire slave echoed through The Flesh Pits. The slave was chained to a wall, the chains being thick and hard as steel. “You should feel honored, your pitiful body has become a unique item of use to me, thanks to you I can test my new war machine…” Osiris called out to the slave, who continued to scream and struggle. A guard who stood on the outside of the Arena entered and placed down a glass cup, lifting it up revealed a miniscule Black Emperor Scorpion. “See, it’s not so bad?” There was something different about the Scorpion, it’s stinger was red and covered in silver boils. Osiris raised his hands and a cocoon created out of vines erupted from the soil, covering the small scorpion, as the cocoon began to grow, unbeknownst to the slave, so did the scorpion underneath. Finally, the cocoon lifted, revealing a terrifying product of Osiris’s powers. “As you can see, the stinger has been agitated.” It was true, the scorpions stinger seemed heavy and still covered in silver covered liquid. “Liquid silver, I bound it myself into its venom and spit, let’s say that this scorpion is now twice as deadly to you.” The scorpion began to walk forward slowly, it’s large feet crushing the soil ahead of it, creating thumping noise. “This one is the first of my creation, therefore she is mine, you are the product of one of our most important questions, feel happy…” The scorpions stinger embedded itself into the slaves flesh and with the swift movement, skin and flesh began to peel and burn away. The slave died as a product of an experiment, not a citizen of the AVN.
‘I have sent the message to Ramses, Azura; he should be arriving soon.’ The message would take about 10 minutes to arrive, but this new success had pleased Ramses very much.
08-22-2011, 01:37 PM
"Ofcourse my lord....thank you."
It was minutes later that Osiris was sitting in his ever growing throne. Azura was pacing back and forth below the steps to the throne. A rare sight to see her in a nervous state; even more rare to see her in traditional noble wear of the clan. Heavily persuaded by their Lord as "to see a beauty is one thing...but to see a desert rose in bloom to greet the sun is quite a heaven sight."
"You should stop pacing and sit down girl, he will be here soon, I can feel him on his way, he is curious, did you tell him you were coming?" Osiris stared at the girl, stroking a Jackal that sat next to him, it's unique white fur shifting as his tanned fleshy fingers wrapped themselves around the fibres. Raising his other hand, a stalk of green arose through the ground, it grow outwards with it's tendrils and then large juicy strawberries sprouted on it. "Take one, they're very nice." Ramses reached out and snatched one from the plant, biting down on it with his teeth, creating a 'squelching' noise.
Azura took a strawberry ande scratched behind the ear of the jackal with a smile before sitting down on a seat of vines and leaves. "No my lord, as you had seen he very well knows of my exsistance in Yellville. But has no idea that I am here beside you ." Azura bit lightly into the sweet fruit savoring the flavor derived from the juices. Placing a hand upon the arm of the thone only to be met with Osiris's hand over hers. "This will truly be a great surprise for him, I dare say he deserves such wonderful news after the years of sorrow we put him through for all of our safety."
"Love is another mans sorrow Azura, we should simply follow to where the fates decide, that is where tre justic is given." Osiris popped the strawberry in his mouth, smiling at Azura and whiping his mouth. "Fate dictated that we were the master race of the Vampires, so it should be." Standing up, Osiris folded his arms behind his back. "We were the first, it is only right that we are also the last, don't you agree?" Pacing back and forth. "We are stronger than them, we welcomed their presence into our undead world, would you see them take it from us?"
Standing up to face Osiris she shoke her head. "Ofcourse not my Lord. To relinguish our position is to relinguish our exsistance and that, is something I will never allow when I have spend my entire life fighting to keep our race in complete power."
Hearing footsteps comming their way to the throne room, Azura curtsied to the leader before her. To then turn and face the one who's gait was all too familiar as the booming sounds echoed louder and louder withing the hall. A smile on her red lips when she saw her betrothed in the entryway..... only wondering what he was thinking. Seeing his Azura in his clan's noble attire standing beside his leader.
"My leige, I have...Azura?" Ramses stopped in his tracks looking towards his betrothed. "Why are you here? I thought that you were back in Yellville?" Ramses pondered on his thoughts for a second before Osiris interrupted.
"We are here to end what you two intended to finish."
"Yes, she is here, to join us, and for you two to be finally joined..."
Looking up to received a nod from their leader Azura walked briskly, almost running to Ramses. Practically jumping into his arms kissing with all her awaited anticipation and love. Azura wrapped her soft arms around his neck with absolute no intent of letting go for a long time. Looking into his eyes.. "no more sleeper within the Rebels...no more hiding... I am back where I belong..for everlasting good my Ramses."
It felt so good to finally say those words...after centuries it just rolled off her tongue like honey to his ears. " We are all stronger now...all of us; and now is the long awaited time that we honor our clans...our family."
Ramses felt the full front of His lovers emotions at that moment, when his lips were released, he smiled at her. "We were always strong, my love, but I am happy to see you, more than happy." Ramses leant in and kissed her again. Osiris sat in his chair, watching the gift of love play it's role on both of the vampires.
"Go on, you know your room Ramses, be gone from my court room, I have business to attend to."
Hand in hand, the betrothed couple went with no objection to what would be their lavish quarters. Azura even giggling in happiness when she was suddenly scooped up in the arms of Ramses's and carried like a bride through the threashhold. Met with a quickly locked door and the soon familiar sensation of both of the vampires slowly lowering onto the bed. "Promise to never let me go again my strong warrior?" Azura asked looking up to the eyes of her love as the warmth of bare bodies entwined together filled her vampiric soul with something almost stronger than blood.
"I promise." Ramses said lovingly..
08-22-2011, 11:37 PM
Allesandro stayed sitting there for a bit. "What do I do? I don't even look like a rebel." he laughed. "Not to mention I hold a grudge." He stared at his injured hand, clenching it.
Someone spoke up from behind him. "A grudge against us, huh?" Allesandro turned around. A couple of rebels stood there. "I bet you were one of the guys who attacked." he pointed at Allesandro's injured hand. "I saw you grab a sword yesterday. It burned your hand, yet it was no warmer than the stones you stand on." He smiled. "That's all the proof I need."
Allesandro was shocked. "I don't want any trouble." he said. "Too bad!" One of the men shouted. They charged him. "Die, scum!" the other shouted. Allesandro's instincts took over. As they swung down with their blade, hec grabbed there hands and twisted them behind their backs. "You have no right to attack me!" He pulled up and snapped the bones in their arms. He threw them to the side. As he wiped hands together, another rebel snuck up from behind. She hit him over the head with a large stone. He collapsed, out cold.

Chiffton and Shiba both heard the violent outbreak as the rebels turned on Alessandro. Chiffton all but disappeared in a flash, appearing again at Alessandro's side. Shiba took a jump and landed amongst the rebels, a few more steps and she was there too fangs fully out hissing. The rebels all froze. Chiffton simply eyed the few near him.
"Hes one of the attackers!" a rebels yelled from his spot, clearly furious but not willing to fight either of the vampires before him.
"Your proof?" Shiba asked but Chiffton raised a hand.
"I already know he has none." Chiffton stated cooly "We have already identified who the prime susppects are and this man is not one." he spoke up loud enough for the rebels to hear. They seemed to settle but another one spoke up.
"Hes still a filthy pure and said he held a grudge."
"Dont jump to conclusions men." Shiba snapped "He could be a useful assest if we can bring him to our side."
Chiffton eyed the man who had dubbed Alessandro a filthy pure "And remember...your new leader is a filthy pureblood sir."
That seemed to silence all the men. With the conflict resolved Shiba knelt down and looked at where Alessandro had been hit in the head. It wasnt going to kill him by any means...but it might be a few minutes before he woke.
AJay listened to Mika. She said the brothers wouldnt grant her wishes but she also said they wouldnt kill her either...infact so long as she was working with them she was safer. He was torn over weather or not to go after Kayli now, but once Mika ran off and everything was silent for a moment he walked slowly walked down the hall. He hesitated at his door, it was barely cracked and he could hear sobbing, it was quiet and he knew she was trying not to be heard.
Waiting until it was silent again AJay walked into the room, silently pushing the door open. Mika was reading maps and hadnt noticed him. Then he heard her mention getting Kayli back to keep him from her same loneliness.
Coming up behind her he placed his hands on her shoulders. "Im not alone Mika."
Turning her around gently it was clear she had been crying and her cheeks were still damp. Using his thumbs he wiped the tears away before taking the map from her and folding it back up. "You want to help me even though it clearly upsets you...that says enough to me. Im not alone Mika because I have you with me." Taking a deep breath he added "And we arent going after her...not now atleast. You said she was an asset, that they wont kill her...then as far as im concerned she is safe until she realizes how badly she has messed up. And then...well...ill just have to save her then I guess."
AJay wasnt willing to think that Kayli had permanently gone to the dark side, he was also positive that she could keep herself safe until she came about. He would have to hope so...
The brothers listened to Alanoth. They considered things for a moment. Alanoth was a trusted associate of theirs and wouldnt lead them wrong...atleast not intentionally. He was however usually right which worked in his favor.
"Yes my dear spy we will grant her an audience...after all, family is rather...""Important...""To most of us anyway." there came a little giggle from the last voice.
"Bring her too us." was the last thing the brothers said before the call was cut.
08-24-2011, 02:40 AM
Alanoth listened to the brothers' last remarks, and then hung up the phone. The plan was moving smoothly, and now a phase was finally complete. He hid his phone in a drawer and then headed over to Kayli's room. He opened the door and couldn't see her, though he assumed she was in the restroom. Alanoth pulled a shred of paper out of an advertisement book and wrote on it with a pen from the nightstand. He made a note telling Kayli that they would head out in the morning and he went to his own room.
He then got ready to sleep, smiling at how well his plan was going. All he needed was to take Kayli to meet the Saxtons, and then have her give them all the information she knew. They would act on it, and one way or another, Ajay woud meet Alanoth's blades. Then, Alanoth thought as he climbed into bed and began to drift off to sleep, he would find Mika and they would run far away from the AVN so as to never be seperated again.

After about ten minutes, Allesandro finally woke up. He rubbed his head where he had been hit. He lifted his head and looked around. "Either I was hit in the head, or I've been drinking." He saw there was still a few people gathered around. However, he was more engrossed in the two who stood in front of him. The blonde man from yesterday and some woman. He stood up, placing the already injured hand against his head. He swallowed, causing the scar on his neck to stretch a bit. "Sorry 'bout the ruckus Ive caused."
08-24-2011, 03:47 AM
As Kasuka hunted in the night for a vampire to gather information from, he came across a building that was run down but several people walked in and out of, as if it was a gathering place. ".....yoku yoku yoku.... watashi ga mitsuketa mono ni mieru...." (well well well....look what I found...) Watching closley to see if there was anything that would cause a problem for him getting in, he waited a few minutes. Seeing how nothing stuck out, he placed his swords to the inside of his jacket and got off the building. He walked slowly to the building to notice no one was guarding the outside. 'Keibi-in wa, naibu..... Chika no kurabu ni sonzai suru hitsuyō ga arimasu? Kore wa, eiga no burēdo de wa arimasen.... Yori mo tekuno ongaku saisei dekinaku...' (The guards must be on the inside.....underground club? This isn't the movie Blade....better be no Techno music playing...) He walked even slower to the door, letting his senses take over for the walk up, Kasuka began to notice smells of old blood and death. 'Tabun konkyo o kyōkyū....' (feeding grounds maybe)
Once inside the building, he made his way down flights after flights of stairs to come to a big solid metal door with two guards that looked like they could have been body builders before being turned. 'Kyūketsuki o shita......' (made vampires) Looking them over, searching for anything that can be detailed to gain a advantage. Noticing on their necks they had fresh bite marks. 'Arata ni kyūketsuki o shita....' (newly made vampires) He approached the door. "Sir...show your mark or invite." They said at the same time. "Mark?" Kasuka asked with confusion. Both showed the inside of their arms to show a tattoo that looked like something out of the movie Blade. "Owh....you do know that those are copyrighted by Marvel comics right? I'll show you my mark...." Undoing his tie and opening his dress shirt to show his full torso tattoo. "It's Yakuza....means I can kill you with a bag of fritos or cheetos...whichever you liked before you turned a week ago...so move!"
The heavy door opened with Kasuka walking through it as the two guards turned to ash with the new arrivals that saw the quick and deadly deed, ran back up the stairs quickly, he shut the door behind him. In this massive room, there was music playing, your normal club type music, people dancing and jumping around, feeding in the dark corners of the room and other vampire like actions. "Kyūketsuki no kurabu....Node, dokusō-sei ni kakeru" (a vampire club....so unoriginal) As he walked around the giant room, several of the vampires there would glance at Kasuka and stop what they were doing to look over the tattoos on his chest since he didn't put his shirt back, not to mention, his katana and wakizashi handles could be seen. 'Kon, kono pāti o kaishi suru tame ni kimeta mono o mitsukeru tame ni....' (now to find the one who decided to get this party started....)
08-24-2011, 08:42 PM
Marianna watched, her expression almost disinterested, as a few rebels turned on Allesandro and were stopped by Chiffton and Shiba. It wasn't until he woke, however, that she approached.
"You don't have many friends, do you?" She asked, tilting her head and grinning in a manner that suggested she was kidding. "I'm glad to see you got out ok. Did Azura, too?" She didn't apologize for running out the way she had, mostly because she had known that it made little difference as far as he was concerned. He had been safe with Azura, and she hadn't been of any help. She then looked at Chiffton, her expression becoming more serious; rather uncharacteristic of her.
"What do you plan for us to do now, if I may ask? I know that Futon is dead, and to be honest this bunch isn't much without his leadership." She frowned, pushing down the tears that wanted to well up in her eyes. Futon had been exceedingly kind to her, and she would miss him.
08-26-2011, 01:35 AM
Mika turned as she felt Ajay’s hand on her shoulder.” I’m not alone Mika." Hearing these words she turns knowing he had heard her. The look in his eyes where that of a sad individual, but he didn’t let it get in his way and his work. “We aren’t going after her not now at least; you said she was an asset that they won’t kill her...then as far as I’m concerned she is safe until she realizes how badly she has messed up. And then...well...I’ll just have to save her then I guess." Mika turned back around and looks at the folded up map. “Ajay… I’m sorry….I can’t help but fell like this is my fault. I should have never come here… So far all I have found and caused is nothing but trouble.” She looks up at Ajay she so disparately wanted to tell him that she had a past that she had kept hidden for some time; she wanted to tell him about Allesandro. But instead she just sighs thanking to herself “Mika what if your wrong, what if that strange man isn’t Allesandro…what would Ajay thank of you? Knowing that if times get hard you’re willing to take someone’s identity just to keep you from suffering.” Ajay was the only one she knew she could trust, the only one that understood her sadness losing his friendship would leave her helpless to the Rebels looking to blame someone for this madness that had claimed so many incent lives.
She looked over at the clock and saw how late it was and also how late they were. She nods at Ajay agreeing with him to let his sister be. “It’s getting kind of late Ajay… We need to get going Chiffton isn’t going to like us showing up late after everything that has happen these couple of days.” She turned around and began rolling up the maps in which she had gotten the maps were very classified, and had been trusted to her by the Brothers and her father. She knew that if the brothers knew she was there behind enemy lines with something that valuable…Mika just prayed that after the argument she had with the three boys kept them off her trail, but in the back of her mind she knew it was only a matter of time before they realized and came after the trader she had become. She back her bag and grabs her weapons she turns around and smiles at Ajay “ So are you ready to go meet up with the others?”
08-26-2011, 03:44 AM
Shiba grinned at Alessandro when he woke. "You definently took a hard knock to the head. Im Shiba...who are you?"
Then she saw Marianna approach and make a friendly gesture towards the man. Shiba wasnt all that knowledgable on the Yellville group since she typically headed RedDevil, and she had been looking for someone who she felt was a little less shady then chiffton to glean some info from. What Marianna asked chiffton next made her smile. This girl obviously knew a fair bit about the rebels and she would have to speak with her on it.
Chiffton thus far had ignored most of the happenings around him. That was until Marianna addressed him.
"What will happen next, once everyone arrives, is that we will seek out these assasins and kill them." Chiffton might not have been from Yellville but he had researched the group quite a bit unlike Shiba who was there on short notice. It was very unlike the young marianna to be so serious "I have the certain name of one of these assasins, he is an egyptian pureblood named Ramses who I reasons to believe is working directly for the Saxtons. The other assasin I believe is a trusted affiliate of theirs named Alanoth. With them dead it will make things much easier on us to finish some prep work before destroying the pureblood leaders at the summit." Chiffton seemed to like to state facts...never stating his sources, this was something Shiba was use to and didnt question. He always seemed to turn up right.
What Shiba couldnt believe was that chiffton was still considering the plan but then again Analies had said to go through with it as well. Sighing she shook her head, speaking to Marianna would have to wait until all untrusted ears were gone. Instead she looked to Alessandro "Will you answer one thing? Are you for us or against us?"
Kayli had been in the shower and after getting finished she found the note on her bed. So they would leave tomorrow...sleep at night travel during the day. A good way to remain undetected by most vampires. Forcing herself to lay down and sleep, even though the night was just starting, she finally did fall asleep.
AJay nodded. "Yea, I have a feeling things are going to be a bit crazy after everything thats happened..."
With that Mika and AJay left the apartment and traveled down to where the destroyed hide out was located. Most all of the other rebels had already gathered there. Working their way to the front so that they could hear better, AJay just knew Chiffton had some form of speech ready...the man always seemed to have something to say anyway, and once it seemed everyone was there the blonde vamp spoke up.
"My fellow rebels a real tragity has befallen us. I know you greive for your former leader, and I wish his soul peace...but we have to keep up the fight. The government attacked us, killed us, and they did it without a single thought." This seemed to fire up most of the rebels, it put a weight in AJays chest. "Tonight you all start a mission. Find and kill these government assasins! Currently we know the name of one man for certain and another tenatively. Follow me and we will give you all the information at your new base."
Some of the rebels let out a shout, some simply moved to follow. AJay just looked at Mika a bit worried...if they had the right men then inevitably Mika would have to pick sides once more. For now they followed along.
After breifly answering Shiba and hearing chiffton speak Alessandro is caught up in the crowd of rebels and ends up inside the new hide out.
Mika, AJay, and Marianna all go to the hide out as well for whatever reason seems fitting to their character.
Once everyone had settled in the new building, an old armory, Chiffton spoke up again. "I would like to introduce to you all you second in command, Lady Shiba. She will give you the run down on your targets."
Shiba stood up acting like this had been planned...really she knew about as much as the other rebels. Chiffton was toying with her and using her like a playing card all at once. She had a good name amongst the rebels and he wanted to use that to his favor. Walking calmly to the front she faced the group of rebels.
"Futons attempt to solve things through passive protest and sabotage were excedingly noble." she said first, this seemed to strike a cord with all the rebels present "He came to Analies and I quite often arguing more peaceful tactics and I often wondered if they would work..." she looked at every rebels face then, they were all listening except chiffton who seemed more suspicious. She ignored him. "But my friends...the time for peace seems to have passed us. By attacking you lastnight they closed the door to peaceful negotiations. Tonight is the start of a new kind of rebellion...the start of a war...and it will start with ending the long lives of the two men who ended Futons life."
All the rebels seemed to have sided with Shiba at the very second. She had once again outshined her counterpart Chiffton in winning the crowd. He might be able to speak politically and gain the sympathy of the masses but when it came to the rebels themselves she had always believed in being more personal. From this point she went through the powerpoint Chiffton had somehow managed to put together in the span of a days time. It had quite a bit of information on this Ramses character, and then the powerpoint showed Alanoth, not as much info but enough she felt for the rebels to find him. After that the meeting was closed and the rebels spread out, preparing to hunt down the assasins.
AJay was shocked that chiffton had somehow gathered this much info during one day. He was also saddened to realize that he had found presumably the right men. Alanoth was definently the right man, he remembered him from the hall encounter. Looking at Mika he took her hand and gave it a squeeze. "Dont worry, Ill find a way to throw them off of Alanoths trail for you. I know he is important to you." then he smiled "Seems like we both have a hard time keeping the ones we care about safe huh?"
Shiba had slipped away from Chiffton after the meeting. She was looking for Marianna, and after a little time looking she found the girl and walked up to her. "Excuse me, but do you think we could talk?" the redhead asked the girl, giving a slight smile.
(I think this responds to everyone...if i missed someone let me know...im having a hard time thinking after all my school work...)
08-26-2011, 07:59 PM
Initially, Marianna stayed silent when Chiffton answered her question. She was swept up in the movement towards the new base of operations, and throughout the entire journey/resulting speech from Chiffton and Shiba, Marianna's grim yet contemplative expression didn't change.
One thing she didn't have to think about was her involvement in this "mission." There was no way she would participate, intentionally anyway. She didn't necessarily find that it wasn't necessary to fight back, she was just happy to acknowledge that she was no fighter. She wouldn't be much use in this mission even if she did want to be a part of it.
Upon Shiba's approach, Marianna grinned. She was reverting back to her childish behavior, if not as extreme as usual. "Of course. What do you want to talk about?" Marianna made her eyes wide, and tilted her head to the side, smiling. She was always abnormally well-behaved for a child, and actually found an odd sort of joy in trying to be as charming and adorable as possible. It was a perk to looking so young.
08-27-2011, 02:05 AM
Allesandro smiled at Shiba when she had asked the question. "I don't honestly know." he said. He stood up and just listened while the blonde man talked until the crowd forces him into the building. He stands in the back, out of sight. He stared at Mika for a bit, then focused on the goings on. After the meeting, he started to get along with a small group of rebels.
Allesandro somehow had gotten into bet with them. They had bet that he couldn't beat them all in an arm wrestle. There was only about six of them, but one of them had arms as thick as a gorilla's. He smiled as he accepted. He had no trouble beating the other, but then the gorilla guy sat down in front of him. He 'accidentally' broke the glass in his hand before he sat down. Allesandro took his overcoat off to show off his well built and scarred arms. At this point, there was a good sized crowd gathered around to watch. At first, it loooked as if gorilla man was going to win, nearly getting Allesandro's hand to touch the table. Then, things turned. No matter how hard he tried, Allesandro's arm would not go down. Vains appeared in the guys arm. Allesandro smiled. Gorilla mans arm started to move back. Then witha thrust, his arm smashed into the table, snapping it in half. Allesandro shook the mans hand as he was paid the bet. A good hundred bucks.
He put his jacket over his shoulder. He walked around with the six rebels for quite a bit. Eventually, they got tired and sat in the back. Allesandro chatted and joked with them again. He was wondering who's side he was really on.
08-27-2011, 05:55 AM
Mika stood there beside Ajay trying to listen, but her mind was very far away from this places. She could feel eyes on her watching her and turns to see Allesandro staring at her quickly turns back around trying not to give any hint that she was just a curious as he was. Her mind raced full of thought of how Allesandro had found her, but most of all what if something happens and her secret get release.
She stared at Ajay awhile watching his face full with worry, and aggression as Chiffton give his speech. Suddenly she is snapped back into reality when she heard the impossible they had information of the people who had attacked the camp. Mika felt a sense of aloneness when the rebels let out a warrior cry celebrating this information. She watched as the faces she had grown up staring at is projected on the screen in front of her. “Hold on a second….no no this isn’t right.” She thought to herself. “Alanoth is a master at his work there’s no way in just a matter of hours Chiffton pulled up that much information let alone a picture.”
She thought then she evilly smiles at the man who just had sensed what family she had left to death. She felt Ajay grabs her hand "Don’t worry, I’ll find a way to throw them off of Alanoths trail for you. I know he is important to you." then he smiled "Seems like we both have a hard time keeping the ones we care about safe huh?" Mika didn’t answer at first she didn’t even acknowledge him... “Ajay something is wrong here” she whispered “Alanoths is one of the best; he is highly trained….. There no way he could have known all that….Chiffton is smart I give that to him but, something isn’t right.” She could feel a big knot that seemed to sit in her tummy and heart as a sense of fear came over her. She turns to Ajay “What….What if the brothers know I’m gone….they could be using Alanoths to distract me, what if they try to hurt him?” Mika’s eyes started to feel up with tears but she hid them back. She knew it wasn’t a good idea to be seen crying, especially over one they were supposed to be hunting. The thought of the Saxtons knowing of her despatcher scared her.
She didn’t fear them at all but she did fear there devious ways of doing things. They were the type to kill anything and everything just to get there way, and knowing this made her skin crawl. Alanoths, kayli,and Ajay would all be in danger if they were searching for her. Mika watched as the meeting and it people started to spread out noticing the strange woman who know accompanies there new leader, try and spending some time with the little girl. Finally the worry is too much for Mika to handle and she walks to the back of the room a slides down a wall. “This was a bad idea… I’m putting everyone I love and care about in danger... I..I just don’t know what right anymore.” She sits there a moment until she notices Allesandro sitting alone, she quickly looks down trying not to be noticed.
08-27-2011, 06:04 AM
Walking around, looking from vampire to vampire, Kasuka could tell that each person in that building was a made-vampire, no Halfs or Pures. As he walked around, every person moved out of his way, like he was a plague or was a reject, and this was bringing attention to him, from who, he didn't know. The idea behind this gathering had to be done by the person who turned these people since the feeding that was being done was group feeding. (3 or more vampires on one human body) He only knew that newly made vampires feed like that.
"HELP ME, SOMEONE PLEASE!" A females voice could be heard running down stairs just to Kasuka's right, as he looked a female got tackled by two others, knocking one another to the floor. This type of feeding was below Kasuka's thinking of how a vampire should act, they had access to blood-banks to get blood so there was no need to feed in this fashion anymore. "Get....off....the human....NOW!" Kasuka ordered to the two vampires about to bite into the human female aswell as the three that came out the stairwell just after them. "....who the hell are you? You make me who I am? No, so I won't be doing what you want." The vampire looked away, bad move, Kasuka drew out his wakizashi and sliced the man's head clean in half. "...I guess you will...." Everything in that room stopped as the female human ran up to Kasuka and lached onto him for dear life, crying as she whispered. "...please...don't let them harm me." Every vampire that chased after the lady backed up a bit and got into a fighting possition. "You want to die mister?" One dove at his back, Kasuka turned with the woman attached to him and cut him out of the air. "Not yet but you did.....Now...who was it that decided to turn everyone of you? I want to speak to them now!" "That person isn't here...something about a meeting with the Pures caused him to leave." "Alright...." Kauska guided the lady to the door that allowed entry into the massive room. "Sit tight and don't move...this will only take a moment or two."
He walked up the long stairs with the lady that he just 'saved' from the savage vampires that he just cleared from the world of the living. "....Sir...wh..what are you?" He let out a laugh before he answered. "I'm a vampire like they were....but unlike them, I don't want you dead...I honor and respect life so I don't go to the living to survive...go home young one and don't venture out at night anymore. Live a good and long life miss." With that said the woman ran off into the distance and entered a apartment building that seemed to be guarded. With a smile Kasuka jumped into the air and landed onto the building he just left, looked into the distance at where Yellville is and began to think about Mairanna, and thought of something he'd want to say to her. '...Chiffton...don't mess with him...stay away from the rebels if you want to stay safe...feel free to come to the Capitol, I think I need your help Marianna.'
08-31-2011, 02:38 AM
AJay didnt try to stop Mika as she slipped away. She was upset and he understood needing to just get away from everyone. What rung in his head was the fact that she was so certain there was no way chiffton would know so much about alanoth in such a short time frame...it was rather suspicious that he had figured out who the attackers were so quickly.
Right then AJay decided he needed to figure out what exactly was going on with chiffton...he also realized that the group of rebels he had gotten so use to dealing with was changing...
Slipping through the crowd he found himself outside. He needed to think.
Shiba smiled at Marianna. The girl was cute for certain but shiba could tell there was a lot more there. Marianna was definently the one she needed to speak with. "Well Marianna as im sure you know im new to Yellvile. As a higher up I keep tabs on all the groups but I really dont know very much about the people in them." her smile softening just slightly she continued "I do know that you are familier with just about all of the rebels here, and that you care a lot about your friends...My job is to keep those friends alive and in order to do that I need to know who I can trust and who to watch. Since we seem to be playing for the same team would you help me? I could stand to have someone help keep me informed."
In the meeting hall Chiffton was getting questioned a bit too much for his liking. Atleast the rebels were eager...finally finding a moment he slipped out front and found himself standing next to a rebel he believed was named AJay...if memory served him right AJay had a sister...
"So where is Kayli?" Chiffton asked when the girls name came to him.
AJay had done good to ignore chiffton up until directly questioned. "She didnt feel well tonight...shes humanlike ya know...gets sick from time to time..." It felt like a weight was pushing against his mind. "Excuse me..." AJay ducked back into the building and fell against a wall taking a deep breath. That had probably been the most uncomfortable moment of his life.
Chiffton remained outside a bit puzzled. People usually didnt realize it when he went to pick their minds...but AJay reaction seemed to speak differently. Interesting...
In the capitol city a shadow appeared in a darkened room, the only light coming from a dim chandalier far overhead. A piece of paper had been left on a table...both were covered in dust...the paper looked anccient and was in a language few american vampires would understand. It was picked up and the shadow morphed back into the darkness and disappeared.
Far from the capitol, under the cover of night a piece of paper slips into an old book as if placed there by a ghost...
Finally regaining his composure AJay stood up and went to find Mika. It didnt take long...he was tired and ready to go home where his thoughts were safe. Walking up to her he knelt down and attempted a smile but was still slightly shook up. Pulling a key from his pocket he held it out to her.
"This will let you in the apartment...I think im going to go home. Its late and I need to think..." he said. For a moment he wondered if she was going to leave with him or if she would even come back to the apartment.
09-03-2011, 10:26 PM
Marianna actually frowned slightly, considering Shiba's request. It was perfectly reasonable, for sure... But she had a feeling that she should be heading to the Capital... She knew from experience that the feeling was probably someone far away trying to speak to her, mentally. But probably not very actively. It was more like... someone she knew was thinking about her. Immediately she thought of Kasuka, and wondered if he had gone to the capital for some reason.
"Well..." Marianna stretched out the word, looking anywhere but Shiba; just like a kid trying to come up with an excuse for something. "I'd like to help you. But I was actually going to go towards the Capital. I'm not interested in fighting or trying to hurt anyone, so I'm not really any help for this mission. But I could keep you posted on anything happening in the Capital. I'm telepathic, you see. I think I could probably keep you posted mentally from there... Though I've never tried covering such a distance before." She stared into space thoughtfully for a moment, before looking back at Shiba and smiling hopefully.
"What do you think? Would that be helpful?"
09-05-2011, 02:21 AM
Allesandro felt someones eyes fall on him and then drop. He looked around saw Mika. Suddenly, he suddenly realized that he had acted like a jerk when he first talked to her. "Great." he mumbled. "I feel bad now. Might as well apologize." he stood up and rubbed his scar. It felt wierd, never a good sign.
He walked over to her anyway. He noticed Ajay, but kept going. He stopped in front of her. "Look..." he said, staring at the ceiling. "I acted like a complete jerk the other day. Im sorry about my behavior. Have a bad temper, I guess you could say. Just don't let that affect how you see me. It was just a bad day for me then." He was pretty sure that if he wasn't a vampire, he would be redder then a beet. He rarely apologized since he didn't regret much of what he had ever done.
09-06-2011, 11:54 PM
Shiba thought about it for a moment. She could see where the little vampire might not be an effective fighter. She wouldnt push her either. "That may actually work. See im mentally sensetive in the fact that I can pick up and relay mental messages, im also impervious to mind reading and control so our conversations would be safe."
Shiba did some more thinking before nodding. "Yes that will be quite helpful. If I have questions about anyone I can ask you mentally and you can relay any helpful info you might come across at the capitol." Shiba smiled then "Thank you Marianna." she gave the girls shoulder a little squeeze before walking off to socialize with the other rebels a bit. Dawn was nearing and she would need to leave soon.
AJay saw Alessandro approach. He did really know what was going on with the two but he felt like they had history with one another. Choosing to leave rather then interfere AJay pressed the key into Mika's hand before leaving. He was exhausted and needed to think.
Going home he found himself sitting on the sofa with a blood bag waiting for someone...anyone...to get home until he fell asleep.
As daylight broke Kayli woke. Her and alanoth would be traveling that day and probably on into the night...
(im going ahead to the next night everyone, also note that Rain is having some computer based issues resulting in her absence...so i would possible do a flashback reddeath, thats my best idea for now...)
Kayli had officially decided that traveling sucked...and they were still traveling now that it was night and they were a good ways from Yellville.
(im gonna let you decide what all happened during the traveling alanoth)
We have proceeded to the next night everyone.
09-07-2011, 12:08 AM
Azura spent the next afternoon getting ready for the ceremony...several servants attending to her in eversense from hair, to the traditional ceremonial egyptian makeup, to the pure white and gold silk egypitan wedding dress. It all almost seemed unreal, but the sweet reality enveloped the scottish vampire in loving arms as she hours later. Was face to face with Ramses at the bottom of the stairs to the throne, hand in hand. As Osiris and a fully cloaked, female stood beside him tall and in silence.
There was no crowd, only nobles who decided to watch, an ambassador from the Kirkpatrick clan sat in the back row, being there due to the fact that Azura's father could not be there on political matters. Shrouds of silk waved in the sweet air and Osiris stood proud and tall, the ceremony began.
The ceremony itself was more of an inimate one. The exchange of vows in ancient Egypt tongue was something powerful even if someone from the outside was to listen to it. The exchange of rings was different however as instead of additional rings added to their matching betrothed ones. The existing rings were with an illumination of light, embedded into their skin much like a tattoo. Resembling the ancient powers of such an everlasting union. With the couple looking to Osiris, the leader smiled and gave a nod of approval. "You may finally kiss your bride...as you two are now, husband and wife."
Azura felt his kiss upon her lips to happen quick and with a new sense of love from Ramses she couldn't help but nearly melt into his arms. Wrapping her arms around his neck to help steady her weakened legs until their kiss was broken to the cheer and applause of those present. Thanking Osiris for performing the sacred ritual, recieving a hug that lifted her off of her feet she couldn't help but to smile. Moving to the hooded female beside their leader kissing her cheeks as they exchanged hugs as well before rejoining her now husband to leave for their night of union.
They walked down the path from the throne with smiles on their faces, the hooded girl stood by the throne again, next to Osiris and Set, who had just appeared. Osiris laid his hand on the hooded figure shoulder and whispered something in her ear, there was a nod, and then the figure walked backwards into the shadows, where she was met by soldiers to escort her to her location, then Osiris leaned to Set. "I want you to head to Yellville to watch Ramses, I will be sending him back at the end of this night, is that understood?" Set nodded and looked towards Ramses, he smiled, revealing his sharp canines and got on all fours, his palms stretched out and his nails grated on the floor. Osiris grinned and turned to sit at his throne, watched Set as he bounded off like a wolf, faster than most vampires on all fours.
By the dusk of the following night Azura was back in her usual clothing, long hair braided back nicely as tonight she too by now was in the house she once called home in Yellville. The pureblood had to speak to Allesandro who will continue to be her eyes and ears with in the Rebels. Even going as far as to with the help of her egyptian clan, erase any records of her existance inside the rebel city. Azura's house now belonged to Allesandro, the city records even stating his ownership since the house was purchased, as well as providing a continuous supply of blood rites to him. No longer would he have problems getting enough blood....the thought of such made her smile as she sat at the kitchen table and waiting for him to wake up. A brown envelope on the table with all documents to his new property and rites to help him prove such if ever questioned. The woman's mind did race wondering what the rebel's had planned and where their new location was. Such would be vital information that was needed so they could wipe them all out before the summit meetings at the capitol that was fast approaching.
Ramses stood upon the Cathedral once more, his heart soaring. He was extremely happy but still determined to carry on his job, he hoped he would please his master, for it was thanks to him that he met his lover once more, this mission was the reason why his life had gained new meaning. "You know Set, it's not wise to watch people behind their backs." Ramses had known Set was there since the minute he was following him, the smokey smell that followed his body.
"You're too good Ramses, too good..."

Mika sat there lost in her thought and worries trying to find an explanation for the revel of the two attackers. “ There’s no way he could of known….I didn’t even know..” she thought to herself as she cup her head in her hands closing her eyes trying to hide the pain she was feeling, and trying not to be notices by Alessandro. A couple minutes later she heard approaching footsteps stopping in front of her. She looks up and see’s Ajay. She could tell he was just as upset as she was, but he hid it a lot better then she could.
She saw the key in his hand and a small grin came across her face. “Ajay you didn’t have to do that.” She looked up at him and goes to take the key but is caught off guard as Alessandro makes his way over her smile went away and a shocked looked came across her faces. “Umm hi” she says she fells Ajay push the key into her hand and walk away. She wanted to follow but she didn’t want to seem strange or like she was hiding from Alessandro. "I acted like a complete jerk the other day. I’m sorry about my behavior. Have a bad temper, I guess you could say. Just don't let that affect how you see me.
It was just a bad day for me then." She pushes back a string of hair that blew in the wind in front of her pale blue eyes. “We all have our bad days…I wasn’t too nice either.” She tried her hardest not to look into his eyes. She was felled with guilt knowing what she knew about him, or more important them but she hid it. “Um I better catch up with Ajay,” She softly rubs her hand over his and smiles at him before she turned and headed toward the apartment. She walked slowly still caught up in the strange Chifton guy who just cracked information that was so secret neither she nor a pure blood knew. She finally reaches the apartment and unlocks the door. Ajay sat on the couch a sleep blood running down the corners of his mouth. She walks over and ever so softly she wipes the blood away. She grabs a cover and crawls up next to him. She closes her eyes and a tear falls “alanoth please becareful.” She slowy drifts off to sleep.

The Travelling had been rough, having to go on foot so as to not be easily tracked was a pain, but it was the best means. After all, despite having traveled several miles, they were now ever closer to the capital. Alanoth had thought ahead and kept a special amulet that blocked other vamps' ability to track their scent-a gift from a *cough*willing vampire hunter. He had also stolen a tent and some other supplies, seeing as they didn't have a lot of mone on them.
Alanoth snapped out of remembering the trip and looked back to Kayli. She seemed exhausted, and fatigue was slowly creeping into Alanoth as well. He saw a dirt road and decided to follow it a ways, at least until they couldn't be seen from the road. Once behind a hill, Alanoth set up the tent, threw a sleeping bag inside for Kayli, and set up a blanket on the ground for himself.
"We'll rest here, you go inside and get some sleep. In the morning we'll try to cover some more distance. Vamps are more likely to find us at night, so I'll stay awake as long as I can."
With that, Alanoth drew one sword and sat on his blanket cross-legged, constantly surveying the area like a sentinel.
09-15-2011, 12:43 AM
Kayli yawned. She was more then ready to just sleep, but as she went to step into the tent she looked over her shoulder at Alanoth. She still thought he seemed a rough and sleezy being the brothers personal assasin and all but he was still a fellow being. He was tired too and she knew it even if he wasnt as apt to show it or complain about it like she was. He also hadnt been totally horrible during the trip...in fact he had been pretty easy to get along with for some of it and more then tolerable the whole time.
She frowned for a minute before sighing and walking over to him. "Hey." she said poking his shoulder a little to get his attention. "We are going to take shifts on watch...you need sleep too. Wake me up in a few hours." Nodding she turned and walked back to the tent. Now it was up to him to take her offer cause she sure wouldnt wake up by herself.
Crawling in she kicked off her shoes and got in the sleeping bag. She was humanlike after all and the cold occassionally bothered her.
AJay woke up around dusk with a small quiet yawn. His back was a bit stiff, that was odd...and he had an arm around something. He didnt really care and just cuddled closer to what his mind figured out was a person in his arms. He also figured out he was upright instead of laying down...thats when he really got confused.
Opening he sleepy eyes a bit he realized he had fallen asleep on the sofa, sitting up...he was kinda half slumped to the side now...and laying in his arms was Mika. He was kinda surprised and went to move his arms, but hesitated. He had come home first and fallen asleep alone...so mika had chosen to fall asleep with him? That really surprised him but it kinda encouraged him too. Instead of moving he just kept holding her. It felt nice to have someone in his arms like this and he was going to enjoy it while he could.

Azura waitied in the kitchen of her house for Allesandro..wondering why he was sleeping in so much as the sun was almost gone. Most vampires would be out by now... Pouring another deep goblet of bagged blood while she waited...listening to his deep breathing while spinning a dagger around on it's tip.
Recounting the current events that happened the last few days made the pureblood give a rare smile. But she was getting antsy... She needed to rejoin Ramses soon to carry out their task; but she had to get any inside details and updates from Allesandro... "Git them bunes up now"...
09-17-2011, 05:26 AM
Mika lays there lost in her dream.“Allesandro, Alanoth…. where are you” Mika screams at the top of her lungs. As she walks throw a blood battlefield felled with the bodies of her enemies and comrades alike. She is wounded pretty badly on her lower back and her thigh, but she continues searching the rubble for the two men. She sees a couple of her troops searching for survivors and quickens her paces to catch up with them.
“Have you seen Allesandro, and Alanoth… I lost them in the fight and I haven’t seen them since.” The gentlemen turn toward her with blank stares. “Are you Mika” Mika nods her head. “We were sent out to look for you… Allesandro was found but still no word from Alanoth.” A sinking feeling came over Mika hearing those words, and their faces lead her to believe it was grim for them both. She follows them to a tent like shelter and is ushered over to where Allesandro laid hang to life with what seemed like a thread that was slowly fading. “Excuse me can anyone tell me about his condition…. Hello” Mika says as she stares around looking for help. She could feel a tear in her eye and she heard it in her voices. Finally a man walks over and places his hand on her shoulder. “You trained a wonderful soldier...
He fought with no fear and won against many.”
Suddenly Mika’s eyes shoot open as she feels Ajay’s arms tighten around her. She jumps up and runs to the bathroom, close the door as she begins to get sick. The grief of the whole situation had gotten a little too much for her and she knew that Allesandro and her had a long history that she had hoped to keep secret, but there was no doubt he knew something.” I’ll just do my best to ignore him, pretend I don’t know” she thought to herself the only one who knew of their relationship was Alanoth, but the likely hood of them meeting was beyond impossible, but what she feared most was the thought of losing her closeness with Ajay.
She had grown really attached of him and it felt almost like she was falling for him. She cleans her faces and mouth and walks out into the kitchen a gets a bag of blood. As she trys to open it she notices her hands trembling she takes a deep breath and try’s to stop it.

As Alanoth sharpened his left-hand sword for the eleventh time, he silently yawns and stiffles it immediately. He had heard Kayli's request earlier that he wake her before long, but he had ignored it. He was a better watchman of the two of them by far, and Alanoth had gone longer than this without sleep while fighting every few minutes. That thought made Alanoth put down his sword and think back, of the days in which he fought alongside his friend, Allesandro, and his adoptive sister, Mika. Those had been glorious days, though they had also been full of sadness near the end...
He shook his thoughts aside in disgust and sheathed his sword, those days were gone, and if he focused on the past too much, he would never get his task done. He turned to look at Kayli, who was obviously sleeping peacefully because of her breathing. He turned his eyes back to searching the area just as the moon started to threaten disappearing, and the edges of red sunrise were beginning to appear. Sunrises had always been soothing to Alanoth, so he watched as the sun rose, allowing the past to come into his mind and fill his eyes with tears of joy, even if but for a moment.

Allesandro once again had a dreamless sleep. They had been like that since he woke with the scar. Suddenly, images of after he woke up in that disaster. He could feel the pain in his neck, where the cut had been. The pain was immense. It caused him to wake up, hands reaching for his neck. He was in a cold sweat.
"It was that time..." he said. It was the first time he could remember having a dream. "Why..." He stood up and stretched. He got his clothes on. Not the tuxedo, but his casual wear. Tan shorts and sandals. This time, he put on a light red shirt. He grabbed his head and walked to the kitchen. He had a headache. "Hey, Azura." he said and walked to the fridge. He opened the door and then it hit him. He turned around quickly. "Azura! You're back!"

Being susceptible to sunlight, Marianna knew that she would have to wait a day until she could begin her journey to the capital. She decided that in the meantime she should return Azura's blades, and probably say goodbye. Although she knew that there would be many rebels travelling to the capital in regards to Cliffton's plan, Marianna had a feeling she wouldn't have much to do with them. But she was pretty comfortable knowing that she would probably know where everyone was. Well, in a very general sense. She didn't know much about the capital, or how the presence of so many minds would mess with her broader telepathic abilities. It was definitely going to be a trial and error situation, though she knew that she probably couldn't afford many errors.
Marianna navigated the streets of Yellville as a cat, although she changed back to her human form when she reached Azura's house. She could tell that the woman was inside, as well as someone else, so she politely stood outside and knocked on the front door.
"Azura? I've got your knives for you!"
09-24-2011, 01:28 PM
Azura only smiled to Allesandro's shocked reaction before Marianna was knocking on the door letting her presense known. Quick to let her in so as not to attract attention "Hi Marianna feel welcomed to feast on the blood in the fridge. As for the knives I gave them to you so I'm glad to know you still have Your knives. I am glad to see you both here however..as I have a reason for being here and cannot take too long. "
Inviting them both to sit this would work well she hoped...passing the envelope to Allesandro and Marianna after make a quick few extra scribbles here and there. "Ok...this is the paperwork for this house...I have just signed it over to the both of you as haveing a 3 bedroom I am sure you both can manage to live here peacefully together. My continuous blood supply at the blood bank is in turn to both your names now as well and already filed with the proper people so no one will question either of you. I have joined Ramses my betrothed in union so he is now my husband..and in turn I'm fully apart of the Egyptian clan. The others have proved that the Rebels can be two-faced and don't deserve my help what so ever; I have proof that your now leader killed the previous one..." Handing them another paper proving such "So I would be on your toes as it would be a shame if you both got in his way and angered him I'm afraid.... Now saying such Alex has an arrangement with me and I know he won't tell of my new place though they will soon find out...I hope you do the same Marianna...it will be revealed tonight afterall by my own doing."
Looking at alex..."I now need to know of the new location and any vital information you can give me...if you don't want to be involved Marianna I completely understand...but I need this info. now and fast as Ramses is waiting me."
09-24-2011, 03:22 PM
Alessandro leaned back in the chair. "I have no alliegence to anyone." he said. "'cept you. But that's because you saved me." So the old leader was killed. This just helped prove how dangerous the rebels were. But still, not all of them were like that. He placed a hand on his neck around the scar and thought about what had happened since Azura had left. He pocketed the papers for the house and tightened the bandages on his hand.
"let's see." he said, yawning. "First off, the base is not too far away from the old one. Just a few minutes away in an old armory down the street. And as for their plan..." he thought back. "They are stopping all negotiations. There will be no more peace. They are planning to start it by killing those who destroyed the old base. That blonde guy wants everyone to believe that they killed Futon."
Allesandro stood up and went to the fridge. He pulled out a blood packet and walked to the counter. "I have a question." he said. "I lost my memory and can't remember most of my life, but it is tormenting me of recently. I am wondering, can you help me with getting my memory? If not, I may very well be driven insane before this battle is over. Then you would lose your source of info. So, whatcha say?"
09-25-2011, 08:27 PM
Marianna was veritably speechless. She'd suspected as much of Chiffton, the guy was a creep. It was sad that Futon was gone, but Marianna wasn't suicidal. She wasn't going to get very involved in the rebellion, at least not beyond keeping Shiba informed. She'd made a promise to the woman, after all. Sort of...
"Be careful, ok Azura? People are getting involved with this, on both sides, that could be very dangerous... We're all going to need to watch our backs." Marianna looked down at her feet a moment, trying to figure out what else to say.
"Congratulations on getting married." She smiled. "After this is all over, I might just have to visit." She grinned, an almost knowing smile. "I've always been interested in Egyptian mythology, after all..." She didn't feel the need to mention that cats featured a lot in the aforementioned mythology...
"Until then, I won't tell anyone where you're going. Nothing to worry about from me." Marianna's grin changed, became a bit sadder. This rebellion was ripping a lot of people apart. It wasn't right. But then again, neither was the original way of running things. Lots of things needed to change, but Marianna was really beginning to doubt the current method.
With daylight approaching, Marianna knew it would be a while before she could leave for the capital. It wouldn't hurt for her to stay at the house for one day...
Death of Korzan

The wind buffered his coat as the sun slowly peered over the horizon, scanning the area and vanquishing any of the remaining moonlight that seemed to plot itself on the earth, its heat stroked the cooled earth, giving the clay life, life that the residents of the Nation lacked. “We will scout the area as soon as possible.” Ramses declared, Set looked up from the ground.
“I will head to Azura’s house now and find out the details, then we shall slay the remainder of this quarter and take this city for ours, in the name of the Purebloods, it is my duty to my clan leader to destroy those that would harm our infrastructure, they must pay for the sins they have committed.
“I have simply been sent here to watch you sir, Osiris was afraid you’d run off with Azura when you were paired.”
“Hah, he clearly does not know me well enough.” Ramses took a leap of faith off of the top of the Cathedral, pulling stones and sand up to create shock absorbers on the bottom of his feet. He hit the ground hard and rolled, where the impact of the absorbers was, there were cracks that seemed to branch out by a few inches, scarring the hard road, Ramses cracked his back and began to walk, not taking any notice of Set, who was materializing next to him. “We will head to Azura’s and stay there for the night, I doubt there will be any rebels out at these early hours…”
10-20-2011, 08:28 PM
"I'm going to crash on the couch for the day... I appreciate what you've done, but I have something of my own to take care of... I'll be leaving as soon as night falls." Marianna smiled, although it held no joy. She shifted into a cat, an action that took a mere second, and padded off. She decided to curl up on the couch as a cat. It was comfortable, and she felt a little more secure that way. She could move much more quickly and disappear much more easily as a cat than as a girl. And though she trusted Azura with her life, staying in a new house for the night was disconcerting. Overall, cat form won.
It was moments before she was asleep, curled tightly in a ball.
