Julia nodded at Miss.Childs response, smiling a little. She was about to go to sit beside her when a woman came into the room, the one she assumed had been talking to Miss.Childs minutes earlier.
She smiled and bowed her head out of respect, blushing slightly at her remark about fair ladies but smiling brightly, she was never one to accept compliments well.
“Greetings Miss.Henrietta..oh..uhh..Henny” She blushed further, being so socially awkward made her a quiet person at heart “I’m..I’m Julia…”
At Miss.Childs gesture, she took a seat quickly, her cheeks still slightly flushed. She watched and smiled a little as Veronica brought in the tea, though sat still with her hands in her lap.
At Hennys question she tilted her head a little. “I think I may have been a few years ago…though I’m sure I would of remembered someone so beautiful..” She blushed further, her comment hadn’t sounded so awkward in her head. “Its lovely to meet you too Miss.Henny..”
Julia looked to them both as the silence fell over the room, catching the glance they made. She remained quiet at the mention of invites, assuming they meant the ball. Looking down to her hands playing with a thread on her dress she just listened to them, wondering who they were talking about when they referred to a ‘Beast’ with a silent sigh.
Henrietta was very good at picking up on others, and noted that Julia had let out a sigh. Chewing the inside of her cheek, whilst toying with her tea cup and saucer, Henny gave Winnie a sideways glance and asked.
“Should we tell her? I mean, its only fit an proper. Might save her life one day.” Henny said, her jade coloured eyes sparkling in the reflection of the candle light. Winnie furrowed her brow, as another crack of lightning jagged along the window pane. The rain was getting heavier, the night was truly frightful outside. “Tis no time for ghost stories, Henny. I am sure Julia would like to be able to sleep when we blow out the last candle.” Winnie was concerned, that Julia might take fright from what she and Henny knew of the mysterious Count.
“But this is not a ghost story.” Henny added, turning her attention to Julia. “Many hundreds of years ago, in the forests of Bavaria, there was said to be a legend, of a man that wore the skins of a wolf. Folk stories said, that he came to villages at the stroke of Midnight, and stole villagers from their beds. Terrorizing whole towns. But the interesting part is, their bodies were never found.” Henny’s voice became a whisper, as she leaned forward in her chair. “They say that the terror did not just strike at the peasants, but a nobleman…no..he was no nobleman. A Prince. Taken from his stead and slashed by the man in the wolf skins. From that day on…the Royal family was cursed. From Father to Son.”
Winnie sat quietly, placing her tea cup and saucer upon her lap, listening to this story, like she had heard it one hundred times before.
“It is a story.”
“Is it, Winnie? Really? You know better than to lead a girl to believe otherwise. For her sake.”
Winnie then appeared perturbed and sat her cup and saucer on the side table. She then took out the invitation, that was marked with the royal seal of the Bavarian royals. In its crest; a Wolf’s head. Winnie locked eyes on Julia. Henny then pulled out her invitation,and again, the same crest.
“This is no coincidence. I will not lie. I am not an angel like Winnie here. I am of the dark, a witch. Not a bad witch, but one all the same. Why did we both get invitations? Hmm? A Bavarian Royal…who bares the mark of the wolf.”
Winnie toyed with the invitation, and then set it down again, as Henny smiled and took her hand. “You had the same sense of this that I did. The legend is truth. The man was not wearing skins of a wolf. He was a wolf…a wolf man. A werewolf.”
Julia perked a brow at the conversation between the two ‘Should we tell her? I mean, its only fit an proper. Might save her life one day.’ Tell her what? She frowned a little in confusion, though she was generally quite happy being left in the dark about things, this seemed important.
Resting her hands in her lap, she patiently waited for them to decide when she heard them talking about Ghost stories. Is that all it was? She wasn’t sure whether it was just a way for Miss.Childs to protect her or if i really was just a story.
As Henny told her the story, she was looking at her inquisitively, she was curious yes, but she would never just ask as it was rude. ‘…They say that the terror did not just strike at the peasants, but a nobleman…no..he was no nobleman. A Prince. Taken from his stead and slashed by the man in the wolf skins. From that day on…the Royal family was cursed. From Father to Son.’ This sounded more like an accusation and the truth rather than a story, even if it was elaborated. It seemed Henny knew what she was talking about and Julia’s eyes widened slightly. She had heard of this story before but it had greatly differentiated from this one.
After Henny was finished, Miss.Childs comment made her think, if she thought it was just a story…..Henny then spoke again. She was getting whiplash from all these mixed messages.
It was then the invitations were pulled out, her gaze falling on the one in Miss.Childs hand, then glancing to Henny at her comment. ‘…I am not an angel like Winnie here. I am of the dark, a witch. Not a bad witch, but one all the same…’ A witch? She had no judgment on this but she had a lot to learn about this immortal world anyway.
She looked back to Miss.Childs when she eventually admitted the truth. A Werewolf? Her jaw dropped a little. They actually exist? She looked stunned but finally spoke
“So…the Royal family are Werewolves?….” It was more for clarification than anything
“The Bavarian Royals. Why yes, Dear.” Henny said, taking a sip of her tea. She said it so matter of factly, like everyone must have known this. Winnie kept quiet during this time, as Henny took the floor. “He’s been to this country before you know. The Count. I believe his name is Virgo. Handsome devil. Surrounded by beautiful women of society. A real….lady killer.” This was said with a tone that had one suggest it was a double meaning. Winnie set down her tea cup and saucer. She was concerned that this was all a bit too much for the young lady to take in. First the mention of witches, then were wolves. What on earth would they talk about next?
“Henny..you will put the fear of God into the girl, and she only just arrived here not long ago.” It was not lost on Winnie that the young lady would be feeling fearful right now, if the rumor of werewolves existing being true.
“But Winnie, is it not true that knowledge against those that may harm us, to be the best form of defense a young girl might have?” Henny had a point, and in the light of the recent murders in Hollow street, plus rumors of things that are happening at the Cathedral, it would be a good idea to know what to look out for. Henny rose from her chair, and walked slowly to the window, where outside it was raining quite hard.
“These times are one of great change in the world. So many marvelous feats by mankind, and there are those that seek to use this for their own ends.” She looked back at Julia and then said.
“Nothing is what it seems. Behind the glamour of many lurks evil that you can’t even begin to comprehend.”
“Why do you tell us this now, Henny? Why are you not part of it?”
“I may be a witch, but then I believe in nature, and the balance of good and evil. There is a definite shift in that though. One wants to rule it all.”
Henny took her seat after peering out the window, and she could have sworn there was a mighty flash of light that had come from the high end of town. Shaking her head, trying to take her mind off what that could have been, she picked up her tea cup and drank the last of her tea. Holding the cup in her hands, she was about to say something witty, till she looked down at the tea leaves in her cup…
What she saw had her heart almost stop. The tea cup suddenly rattled in her saucer, and her hand was trembling violently.“Oh…oh no. No no no.” Henny repeated, over and over. Winnie, was surprised at Henny’s reaction over a cup of tea. “That tea is imported, all the way from the East Indies. I over only the very best.” Clearly, she thought there was something wrong with the tea, not what was left in the cup. Henny’s head rose slightly, and she tilted the cup so that Winnie could see the inside of the cup. The bottom had a marking in it. Death. Someone…very important had just died. But who?
“You read the tea leaves?” Winnie asked, her eyebrow arching.
“They never lie.” Henny muttered, and she set down the cup, suddenly becoming flustered. “Can’t you feel it? I saw the lights..I saw…I saw..” She suddenly became rigid, and fell back in her chair, as though going into a trance. Her head fell forward, like she was asleep, and Winnie inched forward in her chair, only to see Henny’s head rocket back up, eyes black as the pits of hell. The voice that emerged, was not that of Henny, but another….a dark voice that spoke in Latin.
“Pater familias…..pater familias….requiescat in pace.”
“Who…who is to rest?” Winnie asked of the spirit that had spoken through Henny. The voice replied simply; “Amos….”Winnie fell back in her chair. “Amos…Roxburg?” On the question of the name, Henny finally came too and looked up at Winnie with tearful eyes. “He’s…dead.”
The two women sat in a stunned silence, as outside the window a raven tried to tap on the window glass. Winnie knew one thing. A meeting of council would be in order….for this night, Evil had just killed one of their own.
(thread change – Town hall)
~A few weeks after the discovery of Amos Roxburg’s death~
The clock was ticking, loudly as it does, with Miss Winifred sitting in her favourite chair, doing cross stitch, while Henrietta flounced into the room, her apron covered in a nasty green stain. She was mumbling and muttering to herself, trying to clean some goo off her fingers. It was a foul smelling thing, and immediately Winnie set down her cross stitch in her lap and stared at her with steely blue eyes.
“Ugh…this pongs. Yes, Winnie?”
“What…is that gunk on your fingers?”
“Oh this…this…is a disaster. I was trying my hand at a new lotion, that you use on a woman’s hair to give it a more luxurious feel. I was testing it on your cat.”
Now this had Winnie’s eye brows shoot up, as she saw Mr Snookims dart in the sitting room door, with clumps of hair falling off. Miss Winifred jumped out of her chair, seeing the cat in such a state. It stunk, and it looked terrified.
“Why did you test your potion on my cat?!” Winnie screeched, picking up the stinky pussy and then holding it out from her as it meowed pitifully. Henrietta simply shrugged and said.
“Well the maid said no, when I asked her. Didn’t think your cat would mind.”
The sight before Vivian would have been an unusual one to say the least, with the angel berating the witch for her mad potions and tampering with the Angel’s cat. Clumps of fur that were still sizzling, were dropping to the ground, seared off by that dreaded potion that Henrietta had used. It was actually looking more and more comical, as far as Hen was concerned.
“It will grow back.” Henrietta protested, right as the sound of a young girl’s voice was heard at the door.
“H-Hello, Mister Bianchi recommended I come to this boarding house to find a room while I get on my feet, I…hope I’m not interrupting anything”
Henrietta was now trying to restrain her laughter, when the maid also walked in and caught sight of the now bald and stinky pussy.
“Oh my stars…that could have been me!” Veronica the maid gasped, and she dashed over to start picking up the many clumps of fur that were littering the carpet. Winifred was still holding out the cat, when she realized she was being addressed and looked at the young girl with a raised brow.
“Just your usual pickle that my good friend Henny likes to put us through.”
“Mr Snookims doesn’t smell like pickles…more like last weeks garbage…Poooh!” Hen blurted, waving her hand in front of her face, as she tried to hold back her mirth. Torturing that cat was a lot of fun. but then the most unusual thing happened. The young girl started to speak…directly to the cat.
“Aww don’t worry Mr Snookims, the fur will grow back rather fast, if you need some to keep you warm I’m sure I can find something to keep you warm” Both Hen and Winnie watched the girl with incredulous faces, and their eyes darted from the girl to the cat and back.
No Mr Snookims, I don’t know how to knit but I promise if your Mistress allowed I am sure a blanket and a hug will suffice”
As Veronica continued to pick up the clumps of fur, Winnie coughed and urged her maid to go fetch a blanket, so the new girl could…hug the cat.
“Yes Miss Winifred.” The maid bobbed a curtsy and left the room, while Winnie set the cat down on the floor, no longer wanting to have to hold the stinky thing. She shot Hen a nasty look, as Hen chewed her bottom lip, trying not to laugh.
“How long have you been able to communicate with animals, Miss?” Winifred asked, now regaining her composure, as Veronica brought back in a blanket and handed it to Vivian. All eyes were now on the girl, to see what she would say.
“Yes Yes, I know I’m looking like I’m holding a kitty shaped bald baby Mr but its better then freezing your pussy off no?. Oh Miss, I’ve been able to do it since I was born, I can hear them and understand them as well as talk to them, for some reason when I speak English they seem to understand me word for word, A weird thing but I’ve never hated it, I often like the personality of random animals, Mr Snookims is a rather playful but from time to time relaxed cat, however is currently frightened from that Miss with the gunk on her”
-To point this our the cat hissed at Hen, which made her smirk as she went back to softly brush the fur. Smiling softly she looked at Miss Winifred-
“Oh and Miss, rude as it is I forgot to give you my name, I am Vivian Alora, Like allure but with a ah instead. It is a pleasure to meet someone that Mister Bianchi holds in great regards”
The young lady named Vivian was a complete natural when she came to animals, well, cats as far as Winifred and Henrietta knew. Her handling of the bald feline and soothing tone that she used, as she hugged it close intrigued Winnie, though Hen was still finding the entire situation amusing.
Listening politely, both women watched the young girl with marked interest. She spoke to animals in English and they seemed to understand what she was saying. And vice versa. It turned out that Mister Snookims was not at all thrilled with Henrietta at the moment, hissing at her, to which Hen simply hissed back. There was truly no love lost between the two. Again, Winnie frowned at Hen, who rolled her eyes and rose to standing.
“Fun as this has been, I do need to wash this stuff off. If you would all excuse me.” Henrietta said, taking her leave and going out of the room up to her chambers on the next floor.
Being left with just the maid and the young girl, Winifred asked that Veronica get tea for Vivian and herself, so that they might discuss her stay.
“Oh and Miss, rude as it is I forgot to give you my name, I am Vivian Alora, Like allure but with a ah instead. It is a pleasure to meet someone that Mister Bianchi holds in great regards”
The mention of Doctor Bianchi’s name did bring a polite smile to Winifred’s lips. She was terribly fond of the Doctor and hearing that he held her in high regards, brought a slight blush to her cheeks.
“Well Miss Alora…any friend of the Doctor’s is a friend of mine.” Winifred said, gesturing to the now vacated seat for the young lady to sit.
“So you are here to take up a room, and get back on your feet. Understood. Well, I do have some very fine connections in this fair town, that can help you with employment, however I would like to know a little bit about your background, before I start to recommend you to certain employers. It always pays to work with one’s strengths.”
“I…well, I used to be a young farm helper with my family..but thieves did away with them, Other then that I was raised in a orphanage that was deathly over filled, I have only recently left after overstaying my welcome or as the Mistress said “A selfish brat like you has no right to live in my wonderful home”
-She scoffed, the woman held her ego high but her treatment of the kids was often sad and soul crushing. Shaking her head softly she decided to look back to Miss Winnie with a smile-
“As you saw I am amazing with animals, my unique skill works with all kinds, even one’s I have never even talked to, its rather nice and soothing, especially when you talk to a dove, oh my they have the sweetest voice”
-She sighed happily before tapping her chin-
“I am not strong physically but I am a great multi-tasker, if for nothing else I can at least hold four plates of food in each arm or two complete haybales, one under each arm…they are heavy as all heck though Miss. Is there anything else you wish to know”
As Veronica set down the tray of tea for Winifred and her new guest Vivian, the Angel had a marvelous idea that would see the young girl gain employment quite easily, and also mean she would be paying her keep at the boarding house. As much as Winifred liked to be charitable to young waifs such as Vivian, the times did not always allow for such. Taking up a tea cup and helping herself to some sugar cubes, she stirred her tea lightly with a spoon, before taping the edge and setting the spoon down on the saucer.
“My dear, you have illustrated to me that you have a natural affinity with animals, and can also communicate with them on a level which I doubt few could match or even fathom. It is this in mind that makes me think you would be best suited working for the Zoological society. They opened a zoo here in London and I understand some of the newer attractions are rather difficult to handle. One of the Zoo’s directors is a fine man by the name of Lord Thomas Bailey. He also happens to be a veterinarian, and highly sought after by many of the higher members of society to treat their domestic pets.”
(FC : Liam Hemsworth as Lord Thomas Bailey – bio to come)
Taking a sip from her tea, she set down her tea cup with a light clink, and then placed both hands together in her lap.
“Considering your background and history, I do believe this would be a very good opportunity for you. Tell you what, I will personally send for Lord Bailey to come have tea tomorrow, and after you are rested, you can meet with him here, and hopefully, he may see the same potential in you that I see.”
Veronica popped her head in the door, and she said quickly;
“Miss, I have prepared a room for the young lady to stay in. Fresh linen and towels, so she may have a wash before bed.”
This pleased Winifred greatly, and she gestured with her hand for Vivian to follow the maid up to her new quarters.
“I can see you are tired dear, and a rest may be the best thing for you. Just follow my maid upstairs, and she will show you to your room.”

“MiLord, I am facing two Knights of Salvation and they are planning on doing something with a little girl named Sarah Daybreaker. I want to save her but the only way I could do such thing is to defeat these two. My mind is clear and open for you to help me with this event. I am in debt for such help since I have never prayed to you before in my existence,” her words were filled with gratefulness of the generosity that Arren gave to her andshe decided that she would be praying to him much more.
As soon as Gabriel cleared her mind, something stirred within her mind, body, and soul. A power that has been partially awakened though she felt it before when she had fought against strong demons that attacked her temple. And Arren could feel the power of a Sound Volfen stir within this woman. (( [www.youtube.com] )) Gabriel closed her, her hair slowly fanning out though she was not moving but the sound around her seemed to vibrate faster than usual, causing it the be louder and stronger. A white aura started to appear around Gabriel’s feet, slowly making its way up her frame as if its fingers were crawling and digging into her body as more were being created as others disappeared into her flesh and bone. The silken fabric of her robes flapped violently as her power only grew in moments of her standing there. Her hands gripped the hilt of her katana while she moved back into her beginning stance to prepare herself for battle though she does not know the outcome if she takes on both Knights at the same time. Moments had passed and her body was now surrounded by this aura, her eyes slowly opened to reveal bright teal blue eyes that was glowing by the rim of her eye color. Gabriel smirked then looked up at the vial that was throw up into the air that was aimed for her. She took note of the dark crimson liquid, trying to figure out what the blood inside of that vial would do and how much damage it would inflict if it broke before her. Though she made the decision to dash toward the two Knights then change direction to only move around them. The air and sound of her running past them could be her but her movements were to fast for the untrained eyes then turned back around, gripping her sword more to ready an attack that will probably take Coraline and Relic by surprise.
“You’re dead. I got the letter. You can’t be alive. No…Wait…does that mean, I’m dead? I SHOULD NEVER HAVE DRUNK THE TEA!”
-Shadow shook his head as he said to her in a tone she would remember when they would talk in private.- “I am dead Charlotte. You however are only visiting me, I have been watching you since I passed.” -he stepped towards her again getting only a step away within arms length from her as he moved his hand forward towards her face. Shadow’s hand would attempt to touch her cheek to caress it as he did before when she was sad. He tell her heart might be filled with sadness of his death. He closed his eyes as he said.- “Charlotte I am sorry I could not have been there when you needed me. I took necessary steps that were needed, I thought I would have time to say goodbye before it happened. Instead I only sped up my death. I have only one regret for the things I have done. That is that I was not able to able to see you and my daughter one last time.” -he looked into her eyes as smile only to show his emotions to someone who knew him better than most. He saw that she was in fact wearing his pendant he left for her as he placed his finger on it the pendant.- “You have faced greater loss than anyone I have ever known Charlotte. Even so I know you have limited time here with me. I will answer any questions you have within the two hours. I wish we would have had more time.” -Shadow was happy to see her but in the end he was dead. He had a rest that most men would have wanted over five hundred billion years ago. He was old yet he was happy to see his best friend.-
-mean while Arren listened to the woman praying to him as he heard the words he would never thought to hear.-
“MiLord, I am facing two Knights of Salvation and they are planning on doing something with a little girl named Sarah Daybreaker. I want to save her but the only way I could do such thing is to defeat these two. My mind is clear and open for you to help me with this event. I am in debt for such help since I have never prayed to you before in my existence,”
-Arren’s eyes shot open as he thought. “Sarah Daybreaker this is something that I can’t ignore” -his spirit would lift from his body becoming one with Gabriel as he spoke.- “You must keep her alive at all cost…” -when he became one with Gabriel his spirit would detect something as this girl was of his creation she was a Volfen of the Sound Clan as he said.- “You must listen to me. You are a Volfen of the Sound clan, you are of my creation you need to focus. I will guide however you will need to use sound through your sword. You are one of the last of your kind.” -he started to gather sound through her being assisting her to use sound.-
-Coraline was some how throw in Relic’s direction the small little girl would land on her feet just nicely as she looked to Relic as she questioned.- “Well what should we do?” -she did notice this would be hand full for both of them. This woman’s speed was incredible something that they normally don’t see everyday. Relic chuckled as he said.- “Go on Coraline have some fun with her. She seems a little on the slower side for me.” -Coraline gave a insane giggle only to reach into her dress pocket digging for something as she pulled out a small pill. She placed the pill between lips pulling it into her mouth with her tongue you could hear her bit down on the pill as it cracked. Nothing had seemed to change about her eating the pill as she giggled even more. Coraline spoke to the woman as she said to her.- “Well if you want to go fast I don’t mind. It always makes it fun to move faster.” -she gave a devilish smile as she moved forward at a blazing accelerated speed that even would seem to match Gabriel’s own. Coraline cocked back her blade as she swung it widely attempting to come across to the Priestesses right side in an attempt to cut her in half.-
Charlotte’s face crumpled with the overwhelming sadness and realization that Shadow was dead, and that Arren had sent her to the after life to see him one last time. Few ever get the chance to see someone that they treasured so in the time after their death. This was a moment in time that Charlotte would treasure for ever, that is if she could ever get over the shock.
When Shadow attempted to reach out and touch her cheek, caress it like he used to do when she was younger, the bebilith felt the rising tide of tears, a ball coming up her throat, as she felt the sting in her eyes, the sharp pain in her nostrils. One thing that Charlotte had never been able to get over, was losing the ones she loved so early in her life. If she could have taken their place she would have.
Had Shadow truly been watching over her this entire time? Was it his voice that she heard in her dreams, was he the one that urged her to carry on during her darkest hours? The more she thought of it, the more she realized it was true. The anger in the Bebilith evaporated, lost to a wave of sorrow and regret for all the years they had been apart.
“Charlotte I am sorry I could not have been there when you needed me. I took necessary steps that were needed, I thought I would have time to say goodbye before it happened. Instead I only sped up my death. I have only one regret for the things I have done. That is that I was not able to able to see you and my daughter one last time.” ‘
A single tear ran down her face, as she took all this in. “I needed you, Shadow. More than I even realized. Look what I have become.” The Bebilith felt the self hate welling and she sniffed brushing away the tear. The mention of his daughter had her bring up the back of her hand to her mouth, to stop a cry from escaping, knowing his daughter was with her own children now. She deserved to have her father at her side. Why was Charlotte given this chance at a last goodbye and not her? A cruel twist in fate?
Her eyes darted about, waiting for Arren to appear and drag her back. So he was the God that could control the world of life and after, and she turned around and screamed at Arren “You torture me through Heaven! He has a child. HE shouldn’t have died!” Swinging back to Shadow, her grief was considerable, as her brain was pounding, like she was experiencing a migrane.
“You have faced greater loss than anyone I have ever known Charlotte. Even so I know you have limited time here with me. I will answer any questions you have within the two hours. I wish we would have had more time.” Two hours wasn’t enough, she had so many questions. Raising her head slowly, as the madness edged away, she did ask a question, a very important one.
“Does your daughter have any idea how much you loved her? She is with my children right this minute, and there is someone after her, and I don’t know who.”
She reached to touch him, even though he was not real;
“Help me, help her please?”
Atlanteans thought themselves stronger then that, in the end the pride had gone before the fall. Hence why they became as they were. They valued life above all and always sought to destroy the evil wherever he found it. It was the one way in which he could redeem his race.
However this gift Imay had given him was rare. To make a clean draconic pyramid might allow him to call a new dragon. One who might bestow a boon that would allow them again to fight against the spulgorth and reclaim Atantis.-
“You must listen to me. You are a Volfen of the Sound clan, you are of my creation you need to focus. I will guide however you will need to use sound through your sword. You are one of the last of your kind.”
“What is a Volfen? How am I your creation? Why am I one of the last of my kind? I have so many questions that concern to myself and where I came from but that will come later, I suppose. And I will do my best to listen to your guidence, MiLord,” she thought then turned her gaze to the duo, her eyes seemed to pierce their souls through both of their eyes.
As soon as Arren began to gather sound within her being, she gripped her sword tighter for she was unaware how much potential she has and has not discovered. Gabriel tilted her head as she used her hearing to listen to the short conversation between Coraline and Relic and she did not like how Relic said she was slow. It enraged her but she kept her calm stature like she was taught as a child prodigy and kept her chi in balance. She drew a breath into her lungs, savoring the scent of the air though it had a musty scent and exhaled silently. She moved her gaze over to the little girl who gave an insane giggle which was at a frequency that was a bit high for her. Her eyes followed Coraline’s hand, watching her rumage around in her pocket for something though Gabriel did not know what it was. She watched her place a pill of some sort between her lips and witness her grab it with her tongue. ~Crunch~ Gabriel heard Coraline bite down on the pill, listening to her chew on the now broken pill. She stepped back a foot or two to only swing her sword in a downward diagnol direction as a visible soundwave was rapidly shot from her Wakizashi since the wave was aiming for Coraline.
“I needed you, Shadow. More than I even realized. Look what I have become.”
-Shadow took his hand from her cheek as it grasped her shoulder firmly only to have him smile as he said.- “You Charlotte have turned into a fine woman and mother. However remember the words I told you the last time we spoke.” -he took his hand from her shoulder as he smiled only to place his finger on her chest directly over her heart. His eyes would gaze into her eyes deeply as if he was seeing straight through her.- “I will never leave you. I will always been in your heart when you need me in your darkest hours of life. Whether I am dead or living.”
-He was speaking nothing but the truth as he could feel his finger slightly touching the pendant he left for her in his will. He could only smile at her next words for a the brief moment as he heard them loud and clear from her.-
“Does your daughter have any idea how much you loved her? She is with my children right this minute, and there is someone after her, and I don’t know who.”
-Shadow’s facial expression went from the large smile he had to serious at the question to him as he sighed. He knew who she talked about and knew it was time to give Charlotte the full truth of who Anya and Sarah really were. They were much like his children but so much more they were apart of him. He too a deep breath as he looked into Charlotte’s eyes as he spoke.- “You speak of Anya I do love her with all my heart, She knows this better than anyone. However She is not entirely my child, She was not born through a woman. I created her and her sister from the essence of my own being. Long ago when I was but a boy, I was told that my heart was a gate way to the layers of Limbo where all evil is expelled.” -Shadow’s eyes did not waver from her as he was keeping his serious expression as his hand left Charlotte’s body while he continued.- “After being told such a thing, in case anything would ever happen to me, I created two keys that could keep that gateway from being used. Those keys were my weapons that were created from my very being, Anya and Sarah are in my eyes my daughters by they are not my blood daughter’s. Emiko is the daughter I spoke about Charlotte. However the person you speak about that is after Anya. Is the one who killed me.” -he knew this would a lot to take in yet he knew this was needing to be said to her. He heard words from Charlotte’s lips that one would make him think of what he had doen for her and family.-
“Help me, help her please?”
-He felt her hand touch his face as he closed his eyes as he looked at the pendant she wore as he smiled yet again as he placed his hand on her chest as he got closer to her feling her heart beat.- “Charlotte, I have helped you. I fore saw things that would happen and things that could happen. I saw my fate as I saw what would have happened if I stayed to fight this person. I could not bear to see my friends, my family, and your future be destroyed. I gave parts of my very soul to push the hand of a God. So that you and my Legacy may live on. I gave away selflessly to provide a hope for everyone. Charlotte I lived a long life it’s time that you live yours out just as I did but on a different path. I knew that if I did what I did to help prepare you and everyone for the fight ahead that it would mean my own death. I accepted this with honor as a Goryan.” -Shadow smiled as he felt the beat of her heart as he could only chuckled as he closed his eyes.- “You have the Heart and will of my family.” -he slowly leaned his head forward as he attempted to peck her on the cheek as he would bring himself back as he waited for anymore questions he could bring forth to her.-
-Arren heard the young female Volfen’s strong words and even her questions as he could only get frustrated as he listened.-
“It will be my honour to protect her with all of my strength and will, MiLord,”
“What is a Volfen? How am I your creation? Why am I one of the last of my kind? I have so many questions that concern to myself and where I came from but that will come later, I suppose. And I will do my best to listen to your guidance, MiLord,”
-Arren could tell she had many questions about her own race as he growled for where she could hear it within her mind. As he said.- “In due time young Wolf. Now you must be careful you are facing someone using enhancement pills. IT seems she uses them to allow her body to rapidly grow in the muscle and speed part of her being. Use sound to it’s full capability now become with nature become one with your strikes.”
-Coraline smiled and giggled insanely as Gabriel swung in diagonal strike as She blocked with her giant sword only to try and disable to the magic she was using as she held her ground giggling looking into the priestess’s eyes as she spoke in such a polite tone.- “You know my sword disables magic. Your sound magic wont touch me.” -she attempted to use her now gained strength and push her giant blade on top of her giggling in all respects only to try and keep her from moving any further. That sound wave that was directed towards Coraline was immediately disrupted by the big blade in hopes that she could not use sound. This was hopefully possible that the sound wave did not touch her. –
-Arren smirked as he chuckled only to tell Gabriel in her mind.- “Let loose the sound barrage”
Charlotte coughed up a laugh, when Shadow said what a woman and mother she had become, turning her head away so he couldn’t see her cry. She opened her mouth and held her head back, as she tried to compose herself, cause this was really too much to believe, till he placed his hands on her shoulders, and she felt the force of his touch….so real. Her head snapped back around, but her chest was rising and falling fast, and her hands were now lowered and balled into fists. Nails digging into her palms so she could feel…..make this real.
Saying that he was in her heart, and watched over her and the children. It was not what she expected, not at all. Those lonely nights in the caverns in the tunnels of Emerald Mountains, laying against the wall and wondering if they would ever get out of it alive, or even finish what they had started. He was there. The pendent around her neck, was partly a link between the two worlds, from Shadow to Charlotte. Only now did she realize its significance.
Charlotte reached up to wipe her nose with the back of her hand, not ladylike, but she was a mess, emotionally. Thoughts turned to his children, or at least what she thought were his children. Turns out…she was wrong.
“You speak of Anya I do love her with all my heart, She knows this better than anyone. However She is not entirely my child, She was not born through a woman. I created her and her sister from the essence of my own being. Long ago when I was but a boy, I was told that my heart was a gate way to the layers of Limbo where all evil is expelled.”
The spider demoness fell back. Wait, she always thought Anya was his flesh and blood, but hearing this had her recoil in shock. “She is with my children, and has that key you speak of…its what the bad people are after.” Charlotte’s face turned to one of shock and then she looked back up at Shadow and said. “My children are in real danger if that key is what you say it is. And if this man had the power to kill you, how on earth are my babies going to stand up to someone like that?” Her green eyes widened in shock, as her maternal instinct kicked in. Shadow was still talking, but it was like she couldn’t hear him as she tried to get a telekinetic link with her children, whispering in her mind in rhefugi, trying to hear something back, as she walked in a small circle with her fists up to her temple. But it was no use. From the afterlife, her children could never hear her. Slowly she dropped her hands to her sides, and looked back Shadow, her face darkening.
Shadow placed his hand on her heart, which was now beating rapidly. He spoke of his sacrifice to push forward the legacy for both himself, and his, as well as Charlotte. Though she was having trouble understanding any of this.
“You have the Heart and will of my family.” He said, pecking her cheek. Being so affectionate and accepting of his fate long before this time. She felt his heart, his love and this was cherished. But she was sent back for a reason, besides this heart warming reunion.. Only with his answers, could she hope to change what is destined to occur.
“But how do I find my own path…when I must fight to protect my children from this man, and not just mine…Anya and her sister?” She looked away a moment, then back up at Shadow. “Or…was this planned all along?”
” So Jalal tell me aside from me have you ever heard of the Goryas before, maybe my father Kilik or my brother Shadow, The Gorya as many know him? ”
Jalal replied ” The Dragons I knew were named Siksta Svant Ith and Thurkear Welun Jaxo. I had never met them though as a child my father spoke to them and I did see them from a distance. They were revered. It was they who warned my father of the doom and allowed us to close the rift and spare the rest of the world. Though Atlantis itself was lost and my father perished in the fight along with many other brave warriors they completed the final design which closed the great rift. It opened nearly three continents wide as a result of the power we had been able to draw. The power we learned to control was vast with technique and design, the dragons always called us the little scientists. Then later the proud warriors when they made us what the darkness feared. Though I have never heard of the Goryan’s I was quite young.
Imay: “Or would you rather meet a dragon for yourself?”
When Imay asked boldly if he would like to meet a dragon for himself he was shocked by the question but also honored..-
” If there will would be to meet me I would like to meet one at that Imay, it would be an honor to meet any dragon’s of this land. “
