“Ahhhh where did you go? Are you under the bed… Raaah!” Growling at the cub, it crouches even lower under the bed and gives a small bark. I scoop it up in my hand and chuckle as I feel little bites on my hand. Placing him on the bed, I lay on my stomach and get eye level with him. Growling at him, he crouches again wih his front legs while his butt wiggles in the air, gently swiping at his face I get him to bare his teeth. Showing my fangs he gets excited and timidly with it’s right paw reaches to swipe at my face. Holding it’s snout in my hand, he whips his head back and forth and starts growling, letting him go, I swipe at it’s body and knock him over onto his side.
Placing my hand on it’s belly I begin to rock him back and forth, opening it’s mouth trying to bite at me, it makes gasping like noises instead of barks failing to bite at my hand. Lowering my face, I roar in his tiny face. If I didn’t know any better I could’ve swore he started smiling as he went still. Roaring again, he kicks his hind legs out and tries to mimic me, only a tiny growl escapes it’s mouth.
While the cub is practicing its roar, a scent caught my attention. Lifting my hed and gazing towards the balcony, I head toward it with the cub in my hand. Opening the doors, the scent hit me like a brick wall.. without even a second thought a low menancing growl escaes from my throat. The cub yaps in excitement, “no play this time little guy.”
Placing the young cub down on the ground after landing the jump, Junho senses a whole pack. Calmly walking to the back of the dwelling with the cub following. Turning the corner entering the courtyard, Junho sees that it’s filled with Lycans that he has never seen before, which explains the new scent. Simchi turns around to face with a big grin on his face, as Ty turns around and nods at Junho. Nodding his head in approval, “not bad at all. It’s a lot more than I expected.”
“Yea well we didn’t come here that easily,” Junho looks over the at the person that’s stepping towards him. From his assessment, he notes that he’s an Alpha, looking back at Ty who turns his head away from the situation. “You see, we’re coming here with some rules for you Vampire dickheads.” Junho aslo turns his head away as he lets out a laugh. Not saying anything, faces forward again, he let’s this Alpha continue to speak, humoring him. “One, I’m the leader of this pack. Two, they take orders from me. Three, the first chance i—-“
“Lemme guess, you’ll kill me?” The Alpha’s knees buckle under him and he falls to the ground, clutching at his head, from the intense ringing. “You may be the leader of your pack, but you see. I control you, you, you, and you,” pointing at each person. “I control all of you and if you don’t like it, I’ll kill you no questions asked. Therefore, you all must show Ty and Simchi respect, as well as my brothers when they return. And you damn sure will show me respect. Understood?”
Constantly grabbing at Jhanada’s arm, trying to get her attention as they walk through the crowd. Giving a slight yank, she stops walking, “what Cedez damn!?”
“Challenger goes against winner, Chris is the next challenger right?”
“Look!” Mercedez physically turns Jhanada’s head towards the ring to get a look at the guaranteed winner of this round.
Dragging out a single word, “fuck,” she and Mercedez rushes back towards the others…
“Withdraw the challenger, something came up.”
“She has no authority, keep him on the list. Facing Jhanada, Laz walks through the crowd up to the announcing table “what do you think you’re doing?”
“Keeping one of your boys alive,” pointing at the man in the ring, “we grew up with him, he doesn’t fight to win. He fights to kill. Take Chris off the list now.”
“Look idiot! Is he more useful to you dead or alive? Your choice.” Jhanada grabs Mercedez hand, knowing she’s ready to swing on Laz.
Looking the both of the girls over, he makes his decision, “take him off. You both owe me fight.”
The crowd’s cheers grow louder causing everyone to turn their attention back to the ring. Inside the ring the fight starts to come to a close, with Tank tossing his opponent to the floor. Walking around his opponent Tank watches as he stands up gathering his balance. Switching his stance, Tank prepares as his opponent comes charging at him. Quickly stepping to the side, Tank kicks at his shin, connecting with the ankle. With that much force a cracking sound can be heard as the bones in the ankle break, causing the crowd to let out a wave roars. Falling to his knees again, Tank takes the time to land a solid back spin kick to his head, snapping it as well. The referee quickly entering the ring, calling Tank back as he checks for a pulse, not finding one he raises Tank’s arm in victory. Scanning the crowd, Tank’s eyes find another two sets of a pair of eyes.
Un-wrapping the tape from my wrists I hear a knock at the door, “it’s open!”
“Well, well, well, look at what we have here.”
“If it isn’t the double mint twins! You two still together?” I shake my head as Jhanada makes a face.
“Please! She ain’t going nowhere even if she wanted to,” Mercedez said.
“I thought I was the Dom in this relationship?”
“You wish boo,” this time I didn’t even try to hold my laughter as Mercedez smacks Jha on the ass causing her to yell in pain.
“You two ain’t never going to change huh?”
“Ya damn straight! So why are you here?”
“Rude! Mercedez, just rude”.
“Don’t act like you don’t wanna know, so answer the question the question.”
“Y’all a mess, I swear it don’t even feel like seventeen years have passed, but yea. Mikado was killed, found out the Demonata was involved in it and I’m here trying to piece shit together.”
“Are you serious? How’s Jihoon and Junho, how are they holding up?”
“Junho’s alright, you know that boy weird, he didn’t show no type of emotion,” Jhanada smiles as she shakes her hand in her hand. “ Jihoon on the hand, is a different story. You know Mikado raised him, then on top of that he inherited all this power, figuratively and psychically. So he’s… Kind of weird too.”
“You found out that the Demonata killed him, but why would they?”
“They personally didn’t kill them,” talking to Mercedez. “These creatures did, pale bastards, living up to the Vampire myth the humans created. Their jaws unhinged and everything, it was nasty. They don’t talk, unless that’s what it seemed like, but one did draw the Demonata symbol in the dirt when I questioned it.” I noticed Jha staring off into space as I’m talking.
“Jha, what is it?”
“Who the hell is Thomas?”
“It matches up with what he told me and Sticky the other day.”
“Looks like you and Mr. Thomas needs to have another talk then.”
“One of you tell me what the fuck is going on!
“You go back to Erebus and tell your clan that some crazy shit about to go down. The Demonata, is starting trouble again, but this time, it’s against their will. They’re doing it for someone else.”
These two were always into some type of trouble, why am I not surprised they know about this too. Jihoon, the fuck is your girl into?
