Erebus

“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?”

“Okay and?”

“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.”

“No.”

“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?”

“Thomas.”

“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?

Picking at his face, a hand comes up and swats his away, “will you stop messing with your face!  You’re gonna wipe it all off”.

“Because you got me wearing makeup and shit”.

“Would you rather burst into flames, you’re not exactly a pure blood you know,” Jhanada says to Sticky.

“Yea, yea.  Who we meetin’ here anyway?”

“A familiar of mines. He’s a lawyer doing some dirty work for the Demonata”.

“How you manage to score that?”

Cutting her eyes at him, “no need for you to worry about all that, let’s go see what he has in store for us”.

~~~~~

“Can I trust you that you’ll hold things down here?”

“Hyung, of course I can.  Hell I’m a Prince aren’t I?  I can take care of my home,” he says while playing with a six week old cub.

Tank scrunches his face in annoyance, “not really…”

“Yes really! Jihoon is Mikado now, so that makes Prince of the Kobejitsu Clan.  What was Mikado’s real name anyway?” Rubbing the young cubs belly and rolling it side to side, rough housing with the baby.

“I don’t know, he was always—. That’s beside the point!” Tank shakes his head further annoyed that he let Junho make him lose track of his thoughts.  “Look, I’m going to Earth Realm for a few days, three tops.  Don’t burn down the place or get overthrown, cause I’ll kill you, and your brother will figure out a way to bring you back and kill you again”.

Lifting is head, eyes a golden yellow.  Junho averts his gaze towards Tank, “I can handle it. Go”.

~~~~~

I wasn’t expecting her to bring him along, maybe Mercedez, but definitely not him.  He can’t be her lover right?  I mean look t him, he doesn’t even compare to me.  I’m handsome, smart, I have money, who wouldn’t—“

“Thomas!”

“Sorry, did you say something?” I quickly replied snapping out of a daze.

“Is this it?”

Following her finger pointing to the door, “oh yea, this is it.  Come in”.  Allowing them to enter first I close the door behind us.  Makin my way ahead of them I walk around to the head of the operating table in the middle of the room.  Pulling the sheet down, “now from my understanding they’re using these as weapons,” I look up to a look of disgust on both of their faces. “It’s called a Reaper, and this one is a human that’s been turned.  I imagine a turned Vampire or Demon would be a lot stronger”.

“Hold the fuck up! Turned Vampire or Demon?  How the fuck is that possible?”

“Through tests. It’s a weapon because it was designed to kill a specific person, which I’m still working on figuring out who. It was biochemically made, the original test subject was Vampire that was being held captive, but being that it turned out so well, not only were more made, but they allowed it to turn others”.

“Thomas, how well?”

Seeing the concern on Jhanada’s face, it made me a little bit worried. “It feeds off any and everything. They’ll eat Humans, animals, Vampires, Demons; and if they’re hungry enough, each other. You get the point. Their only real weakness is sun light, they couldn’t quite get around that.  Other weakness are the basics that’s the same for everyone else, cut the head off or impale the heart, but good luck. I’ve see things in action, they some dirty motherfuckers.

“So basically, they’re just amped up Vampires? Or, better yet, they tried to mimic a Pureblood”.

Jhanada walks closer and stares at the Reaper, “the scar on its chin, I see you looking at it. It opens open, the jaw unhinges as well with two additional fangs that’s main purpose is to pump venom into its prey”.

“So what’s the catch, their new pets sound too good to be true”.  Sticky crosses his arms, I guess trying to make sense of all it. 

“Although the Reapers a weapon, they’re used as a last resort. The Demonata can’t control them, when they’re released to do the job; Demonata has the understanding that their own men may even be killed in the bloodshed”.

“They’re not behind this”.

“What?” I turn to Jhanada.

“There’s no reason for the Demonata to recreate a Pureblood. They spent all those years fighting us, why try and bring us back?  This is someone’s doing, the Demonata is just a cover up.”

“You sure about that?” I watch as Jhanada gives a smirk to Sticky before continuing on.

“I fought against them numerous times, their leader doesn’t like me very much. As a matter of fact a lot of the old timers, Vampire and Demon alike, don’t like me”. She laughs, this time instead of being worried for her, I’m worried of her.  “Chop of the head and impale the heart right?”

“From the side. Impale the heart from the side, the heart is encased in bone, side of the heart is left wide open”.

“Thank you Thomas, keep an eye out to find who the Demonata is reporting to”.

Chapter 13


While Jhanada cleans herself up, Mercedez walks back into the living area. Spotting his briefcase on the floor, she picks it up.  Shifting through papers her eyes grow big.  Making sure that her eyes aren’t playing tricks on her she reads a couple of them carefully, finding his id tag, were all the more proof she needed.

Perking her head up at the sound of the shower turning off, “Jha come here!” A smile never leaving her face, Mercedez knows that this is just too good to be true.

Walking over to Mercedez at the counter she’s leaning over, “what?”

“Looks like Mr. Thomas is the key to our answers.”

“How so?” Jhanada lifts her eyebrow in a questioning manner.

Spreading the paperwork out on the counter and holding the id tag up, “he’s a lawyer.  Better yet, a lawyer that the Government Officials use.  Thomas is in everybody’s business.”

Letting out a light chuckle, “our eyes and ears,” Jhanada says as she grabs the tag.

“Exactly, all the dealings that go down, transactions, he knows it all.  The only thing is how we get him to go along with us?  It’s not like my seducing will last forever.”

“Nothing a little blood and fear can’t do,” smirking at Mercedez as Jhanada heads to the room to put her plan to work.

Walking into the bedroom portion of the hotel room, Thomas is laid out on the bed, eyes pink, in a daze.  Sitting down on the side of the bed, Jhanada grips his penis in her hand, giving slow strokes. “Thomas?” Slowly shifting his eyes towards Jhanada as she continues pumping him in her hand, “it must have been fate that we met today,” while her lips are smiling her eyes show nothing but darkness.  Looking down at her hand she sends a wave of heat through her hand into his penis, not enough to burn but enough to scare him.  Thomas’ eyes widening at the awful sensation, Jhanada leans closer to him.  “Now I know you know what we are, for the simple fact that you’re surrounded by our kind.  Aren’t you?” Just barely he nods his head.

“The people that you work for, they’ve made a deal with some immortals haven’t they?” Again he nods his head, but looks to Mercedez with pleading eyes.

 Throwing her hands in the air, “I can’t help you now.”

“I’m going to need for you to be our eyes and ears.  Anything that goes down between humans and immortals you tell me, understand me?” Jhanada tightens her grip, “now to make sure we don’t leave any traces that could lead back to us,” removing her hand from him, she bites down on her wrist. “Drink”.

“So… You’re turning him?” Mercedez plops down on the other side of Thomas, very curious as to what Jhanada has planned.

“Not exactly. More like making him my familiar,” pressing her wrist to his mouth making him drink. Choking at the taste of blood, she urges him to continue.  “Sort of like a watered down version of Imprinting.”

“And Imprinting is where you have a bond, sexual, and psychological connection with someone right?”

“Right,” removing her wrist from his mouth she wipes the blood away from his lips. Licking the blood from her finger, “but this is strictly psychological,” although answering Mercedez’ question Jhanada is more so talking to Thomas so he fully understands. “I’ll be able to tap into his thoughts at any given time, while he’ll be able to alert me when he needs to speak with me. We won’t need phones, just think it and I’ll hear you and vice versa.”

~~~~~

Getting onto the elevator, Mercedez leans back against the wall as Jhanada presses the first floor button.  Turning around Jhanada’s caught off guard at a smirking Mercedez. “What?”

“Now wasn’t that better than spending seven awful days with Laz when you’re in heat?” Jhanada rolls her eyes as she lets out a small laugh and leans against the same wall. “You’re welcome!”

“You are a very, bad influence on me,” turning her head Jhanada smiles back at Mercedez.

“I know, just like I knew that you would be fucking him and that you would enjoy it,” poking her in the side.  “This imprint, slash familiar thing… Is it gonna work?”

“It should, I mean, I don’t see why not. Granted it’s my first time trying it out on someone, let’s just hope it does.” Turning her gaze over to the elevator doors, Jhanada watches as the light indicates what floor the elevator reaches. “Just know that whatever happens, I got your back.”

Furrowing her eyebrows, “why are you getting all sentimental on me now?”

Looking back at Mercedez, “I don’t know… I just have this feeling… I don’t like it.”

“How bad of a feeling?”

The door chimes, “I mean it Cedez. I’m not gonna let anything happen to you.”

Chapter 12

Thomas leads Jhanada to the other side of the couch, while Mercedez stays positioned in behind.  Reaching his hands up her back, he slides the zipper down on Jhanada’s dress, reaching in and kisses her lightly on the lips as he pushes her dress down.  Stepping out of it, “strip,” Mercedez commands him as she places her hands on Jhanada’s shoulders, sitting her down on the couch.  Sensually he undoes the rest of the buttons on his shirt and peels it off revealing his broad shoulders and well defined torso. “Just forget about everything and enjoy yourself,” Mercedez whispers into Jhanada’s ear as Thomas pulls down his pants; underwear also.  “Um hmm, oh you will have fun,” speaking at Thomas again, “please her.” 

Dropping to his knees, Jhanada lifts up her hips as he slides her panties down; Kisses her thigh as he pulls them over her knees, down her calves and off her feet clad in black pumps.  Thomas grabs the back of her knees and pulls her forward so she’s slouching on the couch, head resting comfortably on the back of the couch. Spreading her legs apart he kisses his way to her center. Kissing the lips, he slips his tongue between her wet folds, tasting her.  Biting her bottom lip, Jhanada grinds into his face, as Mercedez reaches down and places her hand on top of his head pushing his face closer to Jhanada.

Moving the hair away from Jhanada’s neck Mercedez nuzzles her chin onto her shoulder, Jhanada’s chest rises and falls as her breathing becomes heavier. A moan escapes her mouth as Thomas drapes both Jhanada’s legs over his shoulders, his nails digging into her hips. Mercedez places a small kiss on Jhanada’s ear, she whispers, “Ready for more?”

Walking around the couch, setting her hand on Thomas’ shoulder, Mercedez makes a small cut with her nail on the left side of his neck. “Thomas, let’s move her to the bed.” Retracting his tongue out her, he looks up at Jhanada with pink irises, picking her up she wraps her legs around him as she latches onto his neck sucking at the blood oozing from the cut.

Mercedez sits on the bed first, Thomas placing Jhanada down between her legs, Mercedez leans her back against her chest.  Licking the blood from her lip, “this is bad.”

“Shut up Jha,” grabbing both of Jhanada’s wrists she holds them in front of her, “continue.” As commanded Thomas settles himself between Jhanada’s legs and glides himself into her.

Tilting her back on Mercedez’ shoulder she lets out a gasp as Thomas thrusts into her strong and firm. Tracing the bead of sweat that falls down Jhanada’s neck with her finger Mercedez smirks, amused that her that friend actually tried to talk her out of doing this for her.  Clearly she’s enjoying herself.

“Watch.” Nudging Jhanada with her chin, Jhanada sits her head up as Mercedez runs her hand down her side.  Snaking her down Jhanada’s stomach, over her hip, and presses onto her clit. Thomas grabbing Jhanada’s right knee, he props her leg up, foot planted on the bed; pushing her leg to the side allowing him more access and Jhanada a clearer view of the two them.

Rubbing circles around Jhanada’s tender bud, she moves her hand onto Thomas.  Mercedez taking Thomas into her hand she guides him in and out of Jhanada. Pulling him out, Mercedez traces Jhanada’s entrance with the tip of Thomas’ penis.  With her mouth slightly open Jhanada watches, panting, as Mercedez rubs him against her. “I think it’s time for you to take over now Jha, don’t you think?”

“Hmm,” was all she could say lost in the feeling of pleasure.

Looking at Thomas, Mercedez commands him to lie down.

Easing herself onto his shaft, Jhanada places her hands on his chest as she begins to ride him.  Mercedez grabbing his wrist she bites, breaking the skin, she sucks at his blood. Quickening her pace, Jhanada bounces as her hand moves up to his neck, her other reaching between them holding him in place. Shoving his head to the side, Jhanada bears her fangs and sinks them into his flesh.

Chapter 11

2012 - Earth Realm

Clicking of heels ring throughout the lobby as she makes her way towards the elevator. Men steal glances trying not to get caught by their significant other, one gets slapped as he stared a little to hard. Pressing the up button she waits. With the clearing of his throat he caught her attention. Turning her head she’s greeted by a smirk and nod of his head, not to be rude she smiles back as the doors to the elevator open with a chime. Motioning her to go ahead in first, he watches as she walks in before following behind her. “I just would like to say that you are very beautiful”.

She smirks, “thank you. You look quite handsome yourself in that suit”.

"I would like it vey much if we can get together for a drink later on tonight. If you have time of course".

Swinging her hair around her right shoulder as she turns to her left to face him, “I’m sorry but I’m actually on my way to meeting someone right now”.

Nodding his head to show his understanding, he reaches inside his suit jacket and pulls out a business card. “If you change your mind, here’s my number. I’ll be staying here until tomorrow evening,” the door chimes and opens. Allowing her to step out first, he follows in pursuit, “my room is C234. Please feel free to stop by”. Giving him another smile she proceeds walking down the corridor of the hotel.

I watch as his breathing becomes erratic as his eyes roll in his head. Hovering my mouth over his lips I breathe in, sucking his soul from him, rolling my hips as I ride him. Turning my gaze to my left, the doors open, I chuckle before I suck on his neck which I tore open with my teeth.

“Damn Cedey, did you get the info we need out of him first?”.

Looking up with my pink irises, “he’s still alive”.

“Barely!”

I sit up from the man as she throws clothes at me.

“Put some clothes on!”

“You know you want me,” climbing off him I make my way to the bathroom to clean myself up, but just before disappearing inside I give Jhanada a wink.

Jhanada walks to the motionless man lying on the bed, she bends down to get a closer look at him. “And you say I have a problem, you’re the one with a problem. You don’t need to feed off blood to survive,” shouting so Mercedez can hear her.

Smoothing her dress out as she steps out the bathroom, “it taste so good though. Have a little, he’s not dead yet”.

Turning around and facing her with an amused look on her face, “you damn near gutted him. Bloods everywhere and he’s missing chunks in various places,” she laughs.

“I grew up with you remember,” Mercedez grins knowing that’ll get a rise out of her. Jhanada stops laughing and shoots a glare at Mercedez,“what? I’m just saying and you do have a serious issue,” she finishes putting her stilettos back on.

Rolling her eyes, “anyways, what did you get out of him?”

“Demonata…”

Jhanada furrows her right eyebrow and tilts her head to the right, “what do they have to with anything?”

He really didn’t know anything; apparently the Masters are keeping things real hush hush and just giving orders. From what I saw in his memories, they are planning something big across Erebus and here on the Earth realm”.


“Something’s not right, we try to stay out of their business, but we keep running into them with ours,” Jhanada shakes her head in confusion as the two walk towards the door.

“What’s this?”  Picking up the card off the end table.

“Just some man trying to pick me up,” stopping because Mercedez grabbed her arm. Turning around to see her smirking.

“Well then you should go offer your services to him.”

“No, what is wrong with you?”

“Oh come on! Have some fun, you need to get you some. Some that actually pleases you,” she cuts her eyes at me, “What’s his room number?”

Rolling her eyes, “C234. I’m not fucking him Mercedez.”

“You will,” leading Jhanada out the room.

~~~~~

I knock on the door with a sigh, the things I let her talk me into. It took him a few moments but he finally answered the door. The door opening revealing a tall dark chocolate man, he had taken off his suit jacket left with his white button-up shirt half undone. A smile appeared on his face showing off his pearly whites, he gives a look of amusement when Mercedez steps into his view.  Stepping back he opens the door wider allowing Mercedez and myself into his room.

“Please make your selves comfortable, can I offer you two a glass of wine?”

“Yes please!” I look at her as she makes eyes at me, encouraging me. She goes back to looking around when he disappears into the kitchen area.  Leaning against the back of the couch she walks over to me, “allow me,” she whispers in my ear.

“Ah, here we go ladies.”

He hands me a glass, Mercedez steps up to grab hers, “I’m sorry your name was again?”

“Forgive me, my name is Thomas.”

“I’m Mercedez, that’s Jhanada,” I watched as she walked over, stood next to him, and gave me a wink.

“You alright over there Jhanada? You look a little nervous over there.”

Mercedez slips her hand around his arm, “it’s just her first time doing this sort of thing.”

“Wait your not… I am so sorry,” I let out a small laugh as I see guilt wash over his face.

“It’s okay, I wouldn’t be here if I weren’t interested right?”

“Plus there’s nothing wrong with trying new things,” her eyes slowly turn pink again.  Handing me her glass she stands directly in front of Thomas.  Taking his face into her hands she makes him stare directly into her eyes, his eyes turn pink as well as she seduces him. Whispering in his ear, whatever she said to him made him react. He walks over to me determined, grabbing my wrist he turns it over and kisses the inside of it.

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.
