The Child of Erebus

Chapter 14

Erebus


         His head cocks to the right as he sniffs the air, the rotten scent filling his nostrils he lets out a growl.  Lycans run pass ready to abide by their masters order, he follows right behind them ready to kill and protect his clan.  Easily dodging fallen trees and other foliage, only thing on his mind is to get to his home.

        Shrill cries ring throughout the residence of the Kobejitsu clan as the members protect their home from a new kind of threat.  Decapitating the head of one, he turns around just in time grabbing at the foes throat.  Letting out a mixture of a hiss and scream, a line on its jaw becomes more visible s the mandible spreads open revealing fangs.  The suction cup like tongue springs out, trying to latch onto its prey.  Contorting his face, a rush of electricity courses through his hand as he electrocutes the foul beast ripping his hand away pulling its head with it.

        Opening the door to the elder’s room he spots one of the creatures crouching on the desk feeding off Mikado.  Sensing danger it looks up from its kill towards the door screeching; leaping off the desk it breaks for the tall window.  Not giving it a chance to get very far, he throws the bladed end of his chain, sinking it into the crook of its neck, yanking his end of the chain, snatching the creature back towards him.

Footsteps are heard behind him, wrapping the chain around its throat tightening the hold. Bones crush as the creature thrashes around trying to get free, with one last twist of the chain bones pierce through its neck. Releasing the creature it falls to the floor with blood pooling out as the head barely hangs from the neck.  Movement outside the window catches his eyes, moving towards the window to get a better look he peers down onto the grounds seeing a group of creatures fleeing. Closing his eyes, he turns around. When he opens them again, they are no longer dark brown, but an intensifying icy blue.

Looking at Mikado, not only feeing anger and sadness, but a new kind of power settling in; Power passed down from Mikado to Jihoon, signifying his new role to the Kobejitsu clan. Averting his gaze to his brethren behind him, “give him a proper burial,” now looking at his little brother and Tank, he gives them a head nod. 

Clenching his fists Junho speaks to his Lycans, “sniff them out.” Letting out triumphant roars, easily catching onto the creatures foul scent, they lead the way for the new leader, his brother, and friend to take back the pride of their clan.

~~~~~

          Following the Lycans down into an underground carven, the Lycans split up to gain more coverage of the tunnels.  A two young Lycans stumble across three of the creatures feeding off what now appears to just be a shredded human body. One of the Lycans picks up a creature and flings it across the cavern, while another Lycan brings it claw down crushing one’s ribs.  The third creature screeches as it lunges at the first Lycan, attaching itself to it, its jaw begins to separate. The creature that was tossed away gets up and charges at the Lycan struggling with its peer. The second Lycan catching it and slamming it down on the ground as the creature with the crushed ribs springs up and attacks him. Its mandible spread apart, it sinks its fangs into the Lycans neck as the suction cup tongue latches on sucking. Once broken through fur and flesh, it begins to pump in its venom. The creature that’s being held down it attaches its mouth to the Lycans arm, injecting its own venom as well. The first Lycan meeting the same fate as its fellow comrade.

           With glowing yellow eyes, Junho snaps the head of one creature and throws it to the ground. Catching another as it charges at him, he spins it around breaking its arm behind its back, and then proceeds to rips its throat out with his bare hands. The creature sits up and snaps its head back into position and jumps onto Junho’s back. Reaching behind him Junho grabs a hold of its jaw before it can sink its fangs into him, flipping it over his shoulder he stares at it with disgust as it hisses and bucks under his embrace trying to get at him. Seeing that crease began to spread open, Junho punches it in the face and turns it over face down. Grabbing a fistful of its collar, he beings to repeatedly slam its face down onto the ground. With each slam blood beings to seep out from its face as the blow to the ground breaks its nose, teeth, and cheek bones. With one final smash, the frontal lobe crushes, bones piercing the brain.  Sitting up from his kill, he watches as the blood begins to spread out around the creature, leaving it lying in its own blood. Sensing that his pets are in danger, Junho roars as he heads out to aid them.

           The now crippled creature, struggling to drag itself away, it comes to a halt when it sees that its exit has been sealed off by a thick layer of ice. Turning its head, its eyes watch as his attacker dangles his bladed chain, blood dripping from the tip mixing in with the dirt ground. Looking up into his attacker’s eyes, its mandible splits open letting out one last cry just as Jihoon swings his chain; the blade slicing through the top of its head and exiting out through its chin. Cutting the creatures head in half, the upper part slides down and falls to the ground as blood continues to spew out staining the ground. The last thing it saw was were icy blue eyes

Chapter 9

After breaking out in a sweat she discarded her clothes in the middle of the night. Her hair sticking to her face, her breathing erratic and heavy her hand finds its way in between her legs. Palming her vagina she slips a finger between the wet folds, curling it around her clit.

A hand reaches out and grabs a hold of her wrist, pulling her hand away, the man takes her finger into his mouth sucking the blood from it. Opening her eyes she tries to pull away from him, to no avail he snatches her wrist back towards him. Climbing in between her legs, she tries fighting him off her not wanting what he’s about to do, even if she is in heat. “Now why are you being so aggressive, you’re just making it harder than it needs to be.” Hitting him as hard as she can but not doing much damage, the intensity of being in heat leaving her weak, he holds her down. Eyes filled with darkness she glares at him as he hovers over her.

Just the thought of him being this close to her makes her sick, being disrespected like this and not having the strength to stop him makes her feel frail. Agitated she tries to shake him off her, chuckling he licks a trail of saliva down her rib cage, over her naval and plants a kiss on her pelvis. Continuing down he latches onto her vagina and begins sucking, filling his mouth with her blood.

Walking into the training room twisting my head from side to side trying to ease this stiffness in my neck. I don’t know what it is but I’m tense. Like something isn’t right, I can’t pinpoint to what it is exactly. Just a feeling and it hasn’t been there all day, it just started.

Turning around I spot a Lycan crouch as it growls, squaring my shoulders, it runs at me full speed. Matching it’s speed we meet halfway, arms locked, lowering it’s head it opens it’s mouth and roars in my face. Scowling I push away from it and punch it in the throat. Raising its claw, it swipes over my head as I dodge it, spinning behind the beast I send a direct blow of ice into its back. With ice vapor stemming from my hand I reach around and clench it’s throat in a grip. “JiJi stop it!” Ignoring his cries I tighten my grip, another Lycan comes out from behind Junho. The one in my grasp tries to move, I kick it’s knee in sideways, crippling it.

“Why are you doing this?” Ty speaks jogging into the training room, I chuckle.

“It came at me first, I’m simply defending myself,” I say as I kick the other knee in. Halfway through it’s transformation, the other Lycan speaks.

“We saw the way you treat the young master, we will not stand for it.” Rolling my eyes with a huff, allowing my power to intensify I freeze it’s head solid. Letting its head go, I step back and give a quick but effective kick to it’s neck, severing the head clean off it’s shoulders.

“You call yourself trying to protect my brother, from me? Imma tell you all something right now. You’re in my home,’ pointing at Junho, “that’s my blood. If you think I’m going to harm that boy you can come at me right now. I’ll guarantee you all be dead. However way I talk to him, treat him, is none of your business. He needs to learn that he can’t go around outside of this place and think it’s going to be all fine and dandy.” Pointing down at the lifeless body, “let that be a warning, the way I see it, you’re just his pets, don’t get in my way.” Walking off I grab Junho, throw him over my shoulder and walk out the training room.

Chapter 7

“So listen, your best bet is to stay out the way and keep an eye out.  Let them do all the work.” She passes Mercedez and Jhanada both a holster packed with two pistols.

 “The fuck is this?” Mercedez says, as she looks at the guns in disdain.

 “A gun, you use it to kill people,” please Lord; don’t tell me these chicks are slow.

“I know what gun is, it’s just… You guys actually use these?” I just sigh; I can’t believe she just asked me that. I can’t babysit dumb people, I really can’t.

“Will you just take the damn thing,” she finally grabs it as I hold up the other set to Jhanada, “here”.

“I don’t need it”. God Damnit, not her too!

“Look, if you wanna survive tonight, take the damn gun,” this time I push it towards her.

“With or without it, it won’t make a difference. I am very well capable of surviving the night. So no thanks.”

Rolling my eyes, I set it down on the counter, “Fine. Whatever you say, just don’t come crawling to me needing to be patched up.”

“Don’t worry, I won’t. Let’s go.” I watch as she and Mercedez walk away first, I shake my head and follow them to the truck.

~~~~~

Backed into a corner, Nikki’s constantly firing out shots to her attackers wondering where the boys are to help her out.  Spurts of bright light appears as one by one the attackers burn to flames, dropping dead.  Not exactly sure on what’s going on Nikki hurriedly changes the cartridge, points, a man grabs her wrist and moves it away just as she lets off a shot.  Before the man has time to react to her, his eyes widen as a blade sinks into his throat piercing his trachea. “Fuck!”  She watches as the man slides down to the floor revealing her savior, “Jhanada?” Nikki’s eyebrows burrow downward, something’s different about Jhanada, and she can’t quite put her finger on what exactly is different. She just knows that something is off.

A gunshot to the head, killing off one of the last survivors, Laz looks up as the rest of his men enter the room. “Mortals,” I turn my head to Sticky, “what you find out?”

“Nothing much, except they’re working for someone, no one knew who though”.

"How you work for someone and not know who?”

“It’s the money, apparently, if they finish out their task they’ll be set for life”.

“And what’s the task,” my head snaps to the other side of the room as Nikki walks in first with Mercedez by her side; Jhanada comes in last dragging a screaming man. “The fuck is going on here?”

“Tell him everything you just told me, skip any details, and I will end your life,” she drops him right in front of me.  What she do to this guy, he sits up on his knees shaking like a damn leaf. Finally lifting his head, I wince at his face.  Both eyes were black, blood running down his nose, and his damn cheek bone was coming through his flesh.

“I… I… They um –, “ he lets out another painful scream as Jhanada grabs the back of his neck; you can hear the sizzling and the smell of burning flesh.

“Talk properly”.

This motherfucker looks like he about to cry as he struggles to breathe, looks like I’m going have to keep an eye on her, she got some tricks up her sleeve.

“We were hired by the government to kill and capture some Vampires,” he said as a whimper.

“Capture?  For what?”

“Some experiment, I don’t know what, I’m just doing as told. Please don’t kill me, please just let me go!”

“That’s not how it works with me,” I watch as Jhanada tightens her grip on his neck as flames spring up and fully cover her hand and his head.  Forcefully she pulls her hand away, ripping his head off and dropping it to the ground.  The head rolls away still in flames.

“The hell?”  I actually look up at Nikki, and she has fear plastered all on her face.


Erebus

I don’t like this one bit, the Demonata, other clans, immortals, I’ll work with them.  Lycans, hell no!  I’ll never forget the night I saw one of them slaughter my mother.  Ever since then I vowed to never let another touch my family. I became a death dealer. Now Mikado’s allowing them here because of the kid.

“Breathe man, after today we won’t have to see them”. My jaw clenches as two rows of Lycans come walking in. You can tell that everyone is on edge with them being here, watching their every move, ready to kill.

“Junho better be able to control them the way Mikado says, otherwise he will hate me. They even look at me the wrong way I won’t hesitate to kill them all”.

“You don’t even have to tell me, I right along with you on this one”. I turn and look at Jihoon nodding my head before we make our way over to Mikado and Junho at the front of the courtyard.

“My puppies!” Junho takes off sprinting with his little body over to the Lycans, one drops down in a low crouch allowing Junho to run into him hugging it’s huge head. As much as Jihoon hates watching this happen, deep down he knows that the beasts won’t hurt his little brother.

“This is ridiculous,” Tank shakes his head in disbelief.

A smile appearing across Mikado’s face he begins to speak, “What has happen here we all should take this as a sign to start trusting each other.  The child has been given the gift of Animal Manipulation”.  Small laughter can be heard as the Lycan rolls onto his back, Junho climbing on top of it scratching its belly. “It’s clear that both sides have taken a liking for each other.  Let’s use that to our advantage and learn to trust each other”. Now looking around the court yard into every individuals face, Vampire and Lycan, “We’re going to need each other now more than ever. For I fear that our world as we know it will be turned upside down”.  Stopping his gaze at Jihoon and Tank, “so please, help each other, protect each other. Leave all personal vendetta’s behind, for it’s the only way we’ll survive through this”.

Chapter 6


“What the hell happened last night? I get back and all I could smell was the stench of Lycans”.

“Junho was outside playing with one of them”.

“What?” Tank’s face contorts into a scowl.

“I think you were right about him controlling them, Ty—“

“Who?”

“He was the Lycan he was playing with. He said that Junho summoned him,” looking off into space as Jihoon just thought of something, “It was protecting him, from me of all people!”

“That’s because he is considered their master now,” Jihoon and Tank turn around to see Mikado strolling into the room; “Junho has seem to have develop his power sooner than normal.  Times are definitely changing”.

“Master? How so?” Tank folds he’s arms.

“Just as Jihoon has said, he can control them; my hypothesis is that he can control all animals.  Erebus has always been a dangerous place, but now things are just getting worse.  Before there was at least respect between all immortals, ever since the Eminence has died, everything took a turn for the worst. So with him getting his powers now, I see it as his body preparing for what’s to come”.

Earth Realm

Myself and a few others just finished just finished brining luggage to the two rooms of the new girls that just came today. I still haven’t seen them yet but Sticky and Laz keep talking about which one they’re gonna get.  I just shake my head at them arguing, one day they’re gonna be put in they place big time.

Walking down the stairs to where our training facility is we see Damien, Michael, and Nikki standing in the center with the two new girls.  The two push past me and make their way towards them trying to be the first to talk.

“This is Jhanada my daughter, and Mercedez her friend.  They’ll be joining you as Death Dealers; I trust the three of you well take care of them?” Michael spoke.

“You know we will,” Sticky replied in his husky voice. 

“Laz, I want you to take special care of Jhanada for me out there, not just as the leader but as someone I trust”.

“You won’t have to worry about a thing sir; I’ll make sure that the both of them will be all set”.  Laz looks directly at Jhanada and smirks.  With a nod of his head Michael, walks away talking to Damien in the process. Taking that as my cue introduce myself to Mercedez grabbing her hand and giving it a light kiss.

“Kovu,” flashing a smiling at her, a devilish smirk appears across her face. Turning my head towards Jhanada, “how are you?”

“I’m good,” she raises her left eyebrow, “why she get all that and I just get a ‘how are you’?” I laugh a little as she lowered her voice to try and match mine.

“I didn’t want to seem offensive; I sense you have a mate.”

“You’re a pureblood,” she smiles.

“Yes.”

“How the hell you know?”  Mercedez looks at her confused.

“He’s respectful, plus half breeds wouldn’t give a damn, they’d still try and pursue.”  Soon as she finished her last sentence, she looks Laz directly in the face just as he did to her.

“May I show the two of you to your rooms?”

“You may,” Mercedez slurs the last word as she grabs onto my arm. I catch her give Jhanada a wink, as I lead them up the stairs…

Sticky slaps Laz on the shoulder, “you just gonna let her play you like that?”

“I’m not even thinking about it. She’ll learn soon enough.”

Chapter 5

Landing on the ground I start sprinting, I wind my right arm back and throw a sheet of ice at the Lycan.  “JiJi!” Soon as he spoke, the Lycan tucks Junho under his arm he rolls out of the way, dodging the ice. Rolling onto its feet, it places Junho down and snarls at me.  Before I can even react, flames shoot by making a direct hit to the Lycan’s arm.  Junho screams as the Lycan rolls on the ground trying to put the flames out, Jhanada pushes past me as she hands me my short katana.

“Junho come here!”

“No! You hurt my puppy!” stomping his feet and shaking his head.

“If you don’t want him killed, bring your ass over here!”  Getting irritated by his slow walking, I go over to him snatch him up and hand him over to Jhanada just as the Lycan stops rolling and stands.

Giving a slight twirl of the katana, “Don’t hurt my puppy! Show them you good puppy!” This kid is out of his damn mind, just as I was about to take off towards it, it starts turning.

Soon as the words left the young boy’s mouth, following the command the Lycan begins to shift into human form. Fur disappears, bones shrinking, as the overall body contorts. “Jhai, no lookey!” Rolling her eyes, she steps behind Jihoon so the naked man is out of sight. 

“Better?”

“Yes. See I told you he’s a good puppy, he listens to me,” giving a wide tooth smile.

“Who are you and what are you doing here?”

“My name is Ty and I’m here because of the boy, he summoned me here.”

“And you just think that shit’s normal? You think you can just walk up in here and have nothing happen to you. That’s not how it works around here”.

“I have no intentions of harming the boy, I –“

Stepping out from behind Jihoon, “that still doesn’t matter, why the hell are you hanging around, what are you trying—“

“Jhai I said no lookey,” Junho placing his hands over Jhanada’s eyes to cover them, “and I just wanted a puppy.They listen to me”.

The Child of Erebus

Chapter 4, part 3 (final)

Falling back onto the bed with a light bounce, Jhanada looks at Jihoon with lust filled eyes.  Scooting backwards as Jihoon crawls onto the bed making his way between her legs, he starts nipping at her neck… undoing the clasp of her bra and tossing it to the side, now fully laying on her back, Jhanada arches her back as he leaves a trail of kisses down to her breast.  With her breathing becoming heavy Jihoon skillfully slides her pants down taking her panties with them.

Sinking his fangs into the flesh of her thigh as he inserts his middle finger into her, sucking on her thigh as he moves his finger in and out.  Jhanada moans as she moves her hips in sync to match the rhythm of his finger.  Attempting to clamp her legs shut from the sensation, Jihoon stops her by biting down harder causing her to let out a hiss.  Coming up and discarding the rest of his clothes, he positions himself comfortably on-top of her as she reaches up and brings him into a kiss.  Teasing her entrance with tip of the head, he rubs himself against her clit. “Don’t mess with me,” she said in between kisses.  Smirking before continuing to kiss her, he slides himself inside her.  Reaching down and grabbing her right leg, he pushes her knee into her chest as he continues to give strong thrusts…

Now a moaning mess, Jhanada throws her head back as she involuntarily pushes her pelvis up to coincide with his thrusts.  Snaking her hands up his back, she digs her nails into his shoulders breaking the skin, causing small droplets of blood to appear.  Jihoon sensing that she’s nearing her climax, he begins to pump in and out slower and harder.  Biting her lip in frustration, Jhanada removes her hands and places them on his chest as if she was going to push him away.  Removing her hands, Jihoon holds them above her head with his right hand, while his left slides behind her waist, pulling her closer to him.  Pushing himself as far as her body will allow he starts grinding into her agonizingly slow.

Whimpering as her stomach starts heaving; Jhanada wiggles underneath Jihoon, slowly losing control over her body.  Sucking on her collarbone, Jihoon gives a couple hard thrusts just before a rush of heat washes over Jhanada as she cums.  The muscles of her walls contract, her legs shake as she has a mini convulsion.  Turning her over, Jihoon positions her in place on-top of him, hands traveling to her thighs as he guides her in the rhythm he wants.  Resting her forehead on his chest, with her mouth agape, she puts more effort into grinding as she gains consciousness.  Bearing her fangs, Jhanada bites down on his left pec drawing blood. Moving her up so he slides out of her all the way to the tip, he pulls her back down his shaft working on his orgasm…

~~~~~

Blinking her eyes, Jhanada turns her head to the left. Giggling. She thought she heard someone laughing, but wasn’t sure if she was just dreaming.  Hearing it again, now she’s sure she wasn’t dreaming, turning her head to right she looks at a sleeping Jihoon.  Lying on his stomach, arms folded underneath the pillow his head is resting on. “Jihoon…” No answer, just the sound of his breathing, “Jihoon!” she says a little louder. Still not responding, Jhanada grabs her pillow and proceeds to hit him in the head with it. 

Lifting his head and facing Jhanada, through half closed eyes, “why are you hitting me?”

“I think Junho’s outside.” Letting out a heavy sigh, Jihoon gets up, grabs his shorts off the floor, and walks over to the window.  Jhanada lays back on her pillow as Jihoon looks out the bay window.

“Shit!” Opening the window, he jumps down.  Sitting up, Jhanada hops out the bed grabbing one of his shirts and slips it on as she makes her way to the window.  Peering out, she sees a Lycan holding Junho in the air.

Chapter 4, part 2

"So you’re really leaving?" he says as he holds onto Jhanada. Pouting, she looks up at him,

"Unfortunately, if I knew it was going to end up like this I would’ve gotten so attached to you". Jihoon nuzzles his chin on top of her head as he lets out a sigh.

"I think imma be sick," bending over as Mercedez fakes gagging onto the ground. Tank laughs as he observes the surrounding. It’s a wide clearing in the middle of one of the many forests in Erebus; the place is crawling with Vampires from all different clans.

"I will say you gave us a run for our money. Being the only female allowed at the house, you knew how to kick some ass. Then let’s not even get into the morning runs," Tank shakes his head.

"Soon as they say go, you would dip on us,” Jihoon adds.

“Ain’t my fault all y’all slow,” Jhanada looks away from Jihoon as everyone becomes rowdy as two eighteen wheelers drive past.

"Some of y’all act like you’ve never been hunting before. Pushing each other out the way before the doors are even opened, “Mercedez looks at her three friends.

"You’ll never understand the thirst," wrapping his arm around Mercedez’s shoulders, Tank bears his fangs. "Let’s go". The four of them start walking forward, the scent of blood growing stronger with each step. Nearing the starting point, voices of officials can be heard telling people to keep back as they prepare to open the doors of the trucks.

A round of roars start as steel screened windows are opened teasing the nostrils of the immortals as the scent of blood pours through the air. Most if not all, start to pull and rip their shirts off preparing for the bloodshed. One by one, the four pull their shirts over their heads, as a person forcefully bumps into Jhanada. “Bitch,” eyes glowing red as she continues to walk by. Jhanada bears her fangs as she eyes the woman down.

"I can’t wait for the day when you put Vida out her misery. Just let me know when so I can do a victory dance on top of her lifeless body," Mercedez moves to stand beside Jhanada, following her gaze in the direction Vida walked off in.

"Why the two of you always so damn violent?" The two girls look at Jihoon with a blank expression on their faces.

"Leave it alone man, just leave it alone. You know how they get," Tank lightly pushes Jihoon and they start walking ahead of the girls.

The four of them stop in their tracks while everyone is urgently waiting for the cattle to be released. Chains can be heard rattling as the doors start to slide open. Humans. The guards escort them to the front parading them in front of everyone. Some of them only have bruises, while others have blood dripping from fresh wounds down onto the ground. Once all the cattle are out of the trucks and lined up, the guards proceed to take the chains off them, freeing their hands and feet. The main official, “You’re given ten minutes to run and try to make it across the river. After the ten minutes, everyone you see behind me will be let loose, free to hunt. If you’re caught, you’re dead. If you do manage to make it across the river, you’re set free from us. Now that doesn’t guarantee your safety for there are other creatures out there looking for their next meal”. Stepping back, he lets off a shot into the air from a small revolver. Taking that as their clue, the cattle begin to spread out, trying to get as far away as possible.

All eyes focused as they watch the cattle scramble down the small cliff, running deeper into the forest. “You know what to do if you need help right,” Jhanada turns her head looking at Mercedez.

"Yup".

"Good," smirking, Jhanada takes off running soon after the second shot is fired allowing the immortals to begin their hunt.

“There she go showing off again,” Tank manages to say right before joining everyone else in the chase.

~~~~~

“Ahhh!” An older gentleman swings a large branch at his attackers head.  Ducking out the way, Jhanada knocks the branch out his grasp and lunges forward.  Putting up a fight the man tries to protect himself from the Vampire.  He throws a punch, Jhanada catching his fist in her hand she snaps it back.  Letting out a gasp as she hits him in the throat with her freehand before wrap her hand around his throat.  Sinking her fangs into his flesh, she begins to feed, not letting go even as his knees buckles, she falls to the ground right along with him. 

~~~~~

“Psst…. Psst, over here, this way! Hurry they’re coming!” Tired and getting sick of running any old way the young girl follows.

“How do you know they’re not up ahead,” panic ringing through her voice. 

Mercedez turning around with eyes glowing pink, “I don’t.”  The girl stops running as she just stares into Mercedez eyes, getting lost in a trance. “Come here,” motioning with her index finger, beckoning her to move forward.  Once close enough Mercedez grabs her hand, caressing it, “it’s going to be okay,” she coo’s.  Pulling her into a hug, Mercedez swipes a lock of hair away from her neck as she bites down.  Although she lacks fangs, she’s able to pierce through the flesh and begins to chew.

~~~~~

Splashing through puddles, losing his footing teenage boy, has managed to stay away from the over bearing figure.  Not hearing anything behind or in front of him, just a light breeze, the kid lets out a sigh of relief.  Maybe, at least for now, he thinks he lost him. That is until a bolt of lightning strikes down at a log on the ground.  Screaming, he takes off running again, only to fall backwards with a strong direct kick straight to his chest. “Get up”.  Heaving the kid does as he’s told. “Defend yourself,” kicking the boy in his chest once more.  Getting up a second time, blood spews from his mouth, the boy lunges toward Tank.  Catching him around his waist trying to knock him off his feet, with no luck, as Tank didn’t budge an inch.  Letting out a chuckle, Tank brings his elbow down hard on the back of the kid, making him fall flat on his face.  With a growl, “I said get up!”  Pulling himself to his knees, the boy just looks up at him with a dirt and blood stained face.  Grabbing at his throat, Tank squeezes as he watches the boys eyes widen from the lack of oxygen.  “When I say get up, I mean get up,” ripping his hand away as he pulls a chunk of the boys throat away in his fist.

~~~~~

Hearing a rustling sound behind her, Jhanada looks up from her kill with blood dripping from her mouth and running down her neck, quickly standing she strikes at whoever is behind her.  Her wrist is caught, turning around she’s face to face with a bloody filled smirking Jihoon.  Stepping forward he leans in for an open mouthed kiss.  Sucking the coopery taste of blood from her tongue before pulling away to lightly bite her bottom lip, he then proceeds to lick a trail from her chin down to her neck following along the drying blood.

Chapter 3

“Oooh, look at what the gremlins dragged in!” sitting a plate down on the counter as she goes over the refrigerator.  As she turns around she noticed that her plate is gone, “Hey! What do you think you’re doing?”

“Obviously I’m eating,” Jihoon said as he sat down in a chair while Jhanada booty bumped Mercedez out the way and grabbed two bottles of blood out the fridge.

“I oughta turn you into a damn vegetable!” she said as she threw a bottle cap at Jihoon’s head; he ducks out the way and takes a teasingly bite out a piece of meat mocking Mercedez.

“Why two always staring with each other?”

“Jha, you saw it!  It was him this time, you better keep your eye on him, imma fuck him up one of these days.” Glaring him down, Mercedez moves her thumb across her throat motioning of killing him.

“Oh my god! I’m so scared, Jhanada please don’t let the big bad Mercedez hurt me,” rolling his eyes as he shovels another piece of meat into his mouth.

“Jha you need to handle him”.

“She handles me quite nicely thank you,” his head drops down as Jhanada smacks him upside his head.

“Behave. Cedez how many times do I tell you just to ignore him?”

Rolling her eyes as Jhanada takes a seat on Jihoon’s lap and she joins them at the kitchen table, “maybe if he wasn’t always around I could”.

“I ain’t going nowhere baby love,” batting his eyelashes toward Mercedez.

“What did I just say, you two…“ stopping mid sentence when Jhanada see’s Mercedez motioning something to her.

“I think it’s time for you to go home Jihoon.” Mercedez slides out of her chair and noticeably tries to sneak away while Jhanada hops off Jihoon’s lap turning around a facing the person that voice belongs to.

“Madam! Hey… how are you?”

“It’s late, just because Mikado* and I have allowed you two to mate does not mean you can come and go as pleased. You are to focus on training.”

“But we were…”

“I don’t want to hear it.” 

“Training,” Jhanada muttered as Madam continue to scold them.

“Jhanada you were sent here to train. Jihoon I expect more out of you, you grew up here, you know how to behave and you’re to become leader of the Kobejitsu Clan*.”  Getting up from his seat, Jihoon gives Jhanada a kiss on the cheek and gives a bow of the head towards Madam before making his way to the door.  Setting her gaze now towards Jhanada, the harden expression never leaving her face, “go to bed, we have things to discuss in the morning”.

A hand clad with black tape slowly swipes down the side of the punching bag before the right fist lands in the center with a loud thud, starting the round of synchronized punches. Left punch, two hits with his right elbow, a kick with his left leg, he catches the swinging bag as Jihoon walks by him over to the weapon case.  Stepping back from the bag, Tank flexes his right hand as electricity current becomes visible on his arm.  Sending a low volt into Jihoon’s back, Tank watches as he falls to his knees before rushing over and putting him in a headlock.  “What the hell are you doing?” Jihoon manages to stay through his teeth.

“Teaching you a lesson,” after getting his words out Tank falls back as Jihoon knocks his legs out from under him. Getting to his feet as Tank kicks up off the ground and begins throwing punches at him.  With effort Jihoon manages to block most them and grabs a hold on one of Tanks arms.  Using that opportunity Tank using his other arm grabs onto Jihoon and flipping him onto the floor.

“Alright man, what!?”

“I’m getting tired of this cat and mouse game with your brother.  I’m a Death Dealer not a fucking baby sitter,” he said letting him go. 

Sitting up with a sigh, “where was he this time?” dusting himself off now that he’s standing. 

“Lycans den.”

“What?”

“Get this.  I think he was controlling them; they didn’t do a damn thing to him.  They they wanted to attack me when I grabbed him to get him out of there but they were afraid of what might of happened if they did.” Turning around swinging his arms back and forth loosing up his shoulder muscles, Tank walks back over to the punching bag.

Shaking his head, “I don’t even understand, he’s too young to have powers, he’s only four.” Jihoon said as he picked up his bladed steel chain (kyoketsu-shoge).

Lightly hitting the punching bag, “whatever, you can figure that out later, do something about the damn kid and his disappearing act.”

"About that…" trailing off Jihoon begins his kata* with the chain.
