The Lycan nodded to her and pushed open the door to his cage. "Very well young master. It woud be my honor to be by your side today and to help you." He said to her then noticed her eye was starting to brusie a bit. He put a hand under her chin and lifted her head slighlty to look into her eyes. He was taller than her and only a little taller than her father so he always had to look down at them slightly.
He was very gentle with her but as he looked at her eye his demenor started to change a bit. He almost looked angry however his face brearly changed enough for Dawn to see anger sliping in. "Did someone hit you Dawn?" He asked her. He very rarely called her by her name just like how he spoke to her father. When he called her by her name it was a very serious matter.
"Who did this to you?" His face was still hard as he asked but his hand under her chin was still gentle. He had never hurt her in all the years he had known her. Once in fact Vladmir had ordered him to hit her like how the guards did when he had last controled her mind. Instead Seth had picked her up off the ground and carefully took her too her room. He still felt bad about it in the end because of how Vladmir had treated her later that same day however he would never lay a hand on her to harm her.
When Seth had taken his sworn his life to Vladmir he had also given his life to anyone Vladmir called family. Little did Vladmir or Dawn know that by Vladmir spilling her blood and calling Dawn his daughter that bound Seth to her as well. As such Seth always felt horried when someone harmed Dawn under Vladmir's orders. After all that is the only time that they would ever harm Dawn. It was even worse when Vladmir himself would harm her.
Vladimir grasped the mug from Dr. Faea and slowly started sipping it, it wasn't as warm like when he drank live. But it would do to just heal his sore and scratched hand. He hadn't realized how hard he hit the wall until that morning, when he woke up there was a huge hole double the size of his fist. When he woke up in the morning he realized just how emotional he got just font seeing something of Alexandria. He always knew it would haunt him if he saw anything related to her. But he kept Dawn, which is probably the biggest reminder of his dead love. The only reason Vladimir kept her was because of his secret plan that only one other member of the council knows about. The whole while he was drinking the blood, his face showed he was deep in thought. His hand was finally fully healed and stood up and walked over to the doctors desk where she was sitting. He placed the mug on her desk and avoided eye contact. "Thank you. Prepare the boy for a little experiment for me, please. He needs to be strapped down, and given an anesthetic. He definitely will not wish to feel what's about to happen." He then turned away and headed towards the door only to stop with it open and him standing in the doorway. Vladimir signalled for the guards to come closer, "Find Seth, tell him I need him for his next job." He waved them off as they headed towards the supposedly secret basement where Dawn wasn't allowed to be but was anyway.
Dawn flinched as Seth was examining her eye. It wasn't healing as fast as it should since she doesn't intake blood regularly. For now, she heals as fast as a human, that is until she feeds. She shook her head no, knowing that if she mentioned she got into another fight with the guards he would get disappointed in her for never learning. Or at least that's how she expected him to feel. She could never really tell, so she never tried telling him the truth whenever he asked. But when he asked again, it was hard for her to keep lying. All of the vampires knew how the guards and the council treated her, she thought that maybe Seth knew as well but she didn't want to believe it. She didn't want him to worry, he was closer to her than her own father, he was closer to her than anyone else. "N-no one, I was running to come see you and I hit into a wall. I-I'm fine." She fought tears welling up in her eyes, but it showed in her face how upset she was. Dawn bit her lower lip out of nerves, which she only got when she was on the verge of a breakdown. Usually she barely showed any emotion besides anger, ironically like her father.
Faea noticied the way he didn't look at her. "Yes sir" Faea whispered as she walked into the back and saw the boy sleeping. Oh thank god Faea thought to herself taking a deep breathe and tying his arms and legs down. Then pulling out some anesthetic and inserting it in the boys arms feeling bad. Faea looked around the room and made sure there was nothing dangerous or something valuable she didn't want broken the last time she had left something in it didn't survive. Faea grabbed the blanket in the room and smelt it. "Uch this needs to be washed" Faea muttered under her breathe tossing it in the laundry basket as she walked out of the room turning the light on. "He's all set Sir"Faea said tucking a piece of hair behind her ear. Taking a sip out of her mug I hope Dawn won't see this Faea thought to herself pinching the bridge of her nose with her two fingers.
The Lycan had the feeling that Dawn was trying to lie to him. Mostly due to the fact that she didn't seem to be able to look right at him. Seth was about to speak to her to try to comfort her a little when he heard two vampire gurads coming down into the basement. The Lycan didn't know that his master was looking for him and asumed that they were coming for Dawn. He knew that Dawn had troubles with the guards and he didn't want her to be harmed again on his watch.
"Come with me." he wispered to Dawn and grabbed her arm lightly. He led Dawn deeper into the basement to a hidden ladder that led up to the outside world and led her out. Once outside was sure he helped her up out of the hole.
The sky was cloudy and very little sunlight came though to the earth below. Once he had Dawn up out of the hole he put the heavy manhole cover back on it. The cover was hard to see in the shadows plus not many people came back this way. Most of the vampires, and even Vladmir himself, had no idea that this entrance was even their. Seth was, in fact, one of the few Lycan's who still rememebered that the entrance could still be used.
The Lycan looked at Dawn with a small smirk. It had been a long time sience he had ever evaded the guards like that and it still filled him with a small sence of pride. "So young master," Seth began, "What would you like to do on this fine morning?" Around them the city was just starting to get up and move. Seth knew that Dawn hadn't been out of the Walls of the Vatican in a long time and had no idea about the previous outing that she had. This area of the outside world was intresting.
Nearby the market was just opening and a few farmers could be seen farther away getting to work on their farms with old school had tools. Even the local blacksmith was starting up. The Lycan thought this was one of the funnyest things about the new world. He had watched as the world changed from how it used to be where humans had guns everywhere and they had huge machines to work their farms. After the huge die off of humans at that hands of the Vampires the humans of the world relized that they were running very low on skilled help to fix these modern items and they were running out of the materals to fix them.
Slowly but surly the world was starting its decline back into the dark ages. Doctors had better treatments than ever before however weapony was starting to turn back to the old stuff. Swords, daggers, and even the cross bow and bow and arrow were all making their comebacks while guns and bullets were becomeing outdated.
Dawn heard footsteps coming towards the cages, Seth grabbed her before she could say anything and took her to a hidden escape route. They were in the city outside of the Vatican and Dawn was shocked that this path had existed without her knowing it. She could see humans living their lives like normal but at a closer glance she could see and hear a poor woman weeping as she walked around the city. She was passing out pictures. Dawn walked away from Seth, putting off his previous question. The photo that this woman was passing out was of Christian. He was her son and he was missing. Well, not really, Dawn knew where he was but was not allowed to give away his location. He was the property of her clan now, and that's how it was going to be.
The woman hung around the blacksmith who was constantly speaking of the supernatural dangers of this city, he was also eying both Seth and Dawn closely, but mainly Dawn. Her unnatural appearance stuck out to him which made her think that he knew what she was already. She slowly backed up to Seth, she seemed nervous. "How about to keep breathing? I don't feel very welcome here. Maybe we should go around to another part of town." Dawn walked in the opposite direction that led her towards the outskirts of the city.
Meanwhile, Vladimir awaited his guards arrival with Seth. The Doctor had everything set up and was ready to start the transformation. When the guards had arrived empty handed, Vladimir gripped the mug tight with anger. "Sorry sire, he was not in his cage. But we did find the one who guards the stairwell and he said he had moved from his position due to a fire." The addition of this news caused Vladimir to break the mug in his hand by gripping the mug even tighter. "She is in a load of trouble. FIND HER! Both here and the outside. NOW!" The guards immediately left and half searched the premises while the others marched around the city for both Dawn and Seth. Vladimir tried to calm down. The mug had broken and part of the ceramic was stuck in his palm. He clenched his fist out of anger but it caused him to groan in pain.
Dawn found a quiet area on the outskirts of the town. Not many humans were there which allowed her to calm down a bit. "Thanks for helping me back there.. But now what?" She still seemed off, she wasn't all there. The constant run ins with the guards and not feeding in a while is all getting to her. She felt weak and if attacked she wouldn't be able to defend herself. But her senses were still magnified. She heard something emerging from the forest and it was coming closer by the second.
Out from the forests shadows came a girl who looked a few years older than Dawn. She had mid-length brown hair with a blue-violet streak going down the left side. Her eyes were a bright yellow and her skin was tanned. She was wearing an outfit that made it obvious that she wasn't just any traveler. She carried a duffel bag that looked full of bulky items. She saw both Dawn and Seth and paused for a moment. Dawn stared at the girl, she didn't smell human and she wasn't a vampire. The girl looked curiously at the pair, she wasn't aware of this city being taken over by Vampires and how Lycans were treated here. "Uh, excuse me but would any of you know where a girl could get a drink around here?" She figured she was new in town and these folks didn't seem normal so why not get a drink with them? It's been a while since she's met someone who was different. Dawn was wary of this girl, but she didn't know why. She looked to Seth, waiting for him to give the girl an answer. She would go where he went, she trusted his judgement and wouldn't question his decision.
The Lycan was about to answer Dawn when he smelled the female Lycan approching. 'She smells...familar...' Seth thought to himself when she appeared. The Lycan had no idea who this girl was however her sent made him, almost, remember something. Unable to place his finger on it he choose to instead answer her question. "There is an inn just around inside the city. In fact I was about to take my young master there."
The Inn that Seth spoke of was one of the few that was friendly to, or aware of, vampires and Lycans as well as humans. Vampires and Lycans could order drinks or food just like humans and because of the clever lighting, and choice of glasses and bottles, humans would hardly notice that the woman at the end of the bar that they just ordered a drink for was drinking some AB negative or that their new drinking buddy had an odd amount of blood dripping from his hamburger.
The Lycan wanted to take Dawn their to get something to drink. He could tell that she needed it seeing as she was starting to smell almost human again. Seth knew that without a drink sometime soon she may end up dying. If she ever went out doors when the full sun was out she may turn into dust in the wind or the lack of fresh blood in her body would result in her no longer looking human and she would be hunted in no time, that or stuck inside for the rest of her undead life or until she fed, whatever came first.
Seth didn't tell the young female what she was coming into seeing as she would likely find out soon enough. "You are welcome to join us if you would like." He never told her that he himself was a Lycan, even though he could smell that she was, or that Dawn was a vampire. She would most likely found out soon enough. Seth began to walk into the back part of the city where most humans tried to stay away from unless they wanted to go to the inn. He stayed just ahead of Dawn in order to lead her, however he kept an open ear to the young female just incase she tried anything. The Lycan didn't know her and wasn't aobut to take the chance that she was going to try to attack.
Faea her back turned when she heard Vladimir shout she jumped nearly dropping her mug but she held onto it. Turning around and seeing more glass all over the floor. Then saw Vladimir with a piece of ceramic glass in his hand and groaning in pain. Walking over and grabbing a first aid kit guiding Vladimir to a seat and pulling up a chair sitting down in it before looking at the piece of the glass. "Sorry if this hurts" Faea apologized before slowly dis-lodging the piece of glass and throwing it out. Then pulling out a piece of gauze and then wrapping it up quickly and slowly at the same time. The same process she had done for years. Finishing wrapping his hand and tying into a bow she leaned back. "There you go all set"Faea said smiling.
Dawn listened to the quick exchange of words between Seth and this mysterious girl that appeared from the woods. There was something about her scent, but her abilities were dwindling so she couldn't tell for sure. Seth mentioned an inn, so they started heading there. Dawn was very slow when they walked and the small bit of sun that was showing through the clouds was causing her to become even weaker. Eventually she had to hang onto Seth in order to make it through the last few steps before they got to the doors of the inn.
Cori, on the other hand, was intrigued by the way a Lycan was taking care of a Vampire. She didn't know about the Lycan's imprisonment, but she did know that the two races never really got along. As they approached the inn, she noticed the vampire was looking weak and leaning against the other Lycan. The inn they walked into was full of many different patrons. Some were Vampire, others were Lycans, and the rest were humans. Which felt weird to Cori, she didn't think humans could be in the same place without a Vampire attacking one of them. She wondered if the humans there knew what the other creatures they were sitting next to were and if they knew how dangerous both races could be.
Cori sat at a table that was set for two, she pulled an extra chair up and sat in it backwards. She leaned her chin against the back of the chair with her hands sitting in her lap. Dawn and Seth followed behind her since it took a while to get Dawn through the door. She was almost stumbling to her seat. Seth.. I don't feel so good all of a sudden.." She hadn't noticed how weak she was until she had gone outside. Just the little bit of light had made her feel immensely ill. Dawn grabbed onto her chair and could see a few people staring, it made her feel even more uncomfortable. Her eyes glowed and she started growling at the humans who were looking. The Vampire's at the inn knew what was happening and the Lycans could care less to look. But the humans were curious. She had no more energy to speak, she just growled and hissed at the faces looking at her and they eventually turned away.
Cori heard the Vampire girl mention the Lycan's name. Seth. That was the same name mentioned in her mothers diary. Cori's eyes went to Seth, as he walked into the inn following after the Vampire girl. She looked angry instantly after hearing his name. To her, it was his fault she was like this and it was his fault that she had killed her mother and sister. For the longest time, she could not figure out what was happening to her. Until one day, she met another like her. But he was a maniac. He enjoyed turning others and toying with the people he planned on eating. In the end, Cori ended up killing him one full moon. She still can't morph willingly but when the moment calls for it, she can but she won't have control over her wolf.
Back at the Vatican, Vladimir sat there as Dr. Faea wrapped his injured hand. He looked pissed off. The guards rushed all around the base and went outside. The last place they would check is the inn, but eventually they would get to it. Vladimir stood up and looked at the Doctor. "Thank you." It sounded forced but still sincere. Vladimir walked out of the clinic and towards the entrance. He planned on searching as well. He was sure to make another example out of Dawn once he finds her, and where Seth went without informing him was another issue. He also needed a drink, so he took a few guards and headed toward the inn.
Seth only had to take one look at Dawn to know what was happening. "Vinnie," He called over to the bar. The man standing behind it was a human. He had opened the bar and inn a few years ago in order to try to make some money off of all three races in one fell blow. He had been a traveler for several years and had been from a town where all three races tried to live in peace. Of course it didn't last. A vampire had fallen in love with a rich human woman and they tried to run off together. It ended up causeing huge problems and the Lycan's ended up getting dragged into it all.
Vinnie was a thin man who was almost as tall as Seth. The Lycan was a bit taller than Vladmir and a couple inches taller than Dawn. This made Vinnie one of the taller humans in the area. Vladmir himself had decided to allow Vinnie to live it the city as long as he respect his laws and didn't bring any notice to the Vampires and Lycans living alongside, well more like above, the humans. The man looked up at Seths call and gave a smile. "Hey you old dog! How can I help you today?"
Vinnie was the only person in the city, vampire, lycan, or human, who would ever call Seth an 'old dog', he was also the only person who knew he could get away with it. "Nothing for me today Vinnie, but my young friend could use an extra Bloodly Mary. Add a shot of cherry." His order was all in code that any one who came here more than once needed to learn fast. Seth had actually ordered a warm glass of B postive. "And get her," his head nodded towards Cori, "Whatever she would like to eat or drink."
In short order Vinnie set the drink before Dawn and then stood next to Cori to take her order. "Well missy, what would you like today." He asked her with a smile. Seth was speaking to Dawn in a hushed voice. "I know how you feel about drinking blood young master," he said as he placed a hand on her sholder. But I need you to drink this now. You won't be a newborn much longer and you will soon need to drink this in order to even look human." Seth thought for a moment and decided to try something that he would usually try to avoid. "Your mother would want to be strong and healthy. Besides you will never be able to fight with your father like this young firestarter."
Seth never liked to bring up Dawn's mother around her seeing as one of the last time Seth had to spend a few hours trying to clean up the ashes that had been his old hat. The Lycan knew that Dawn's fury hadn't been aimed at him however he didn't want to upset her again.
The man who Seth had referred to as Vinnie approached Cori and asked for her order. She hadn't eaten in two days due to her traveling and the lack of animals in the forest. "Burger without the bun, raw. And a shot of whiskey." From the sound of it, it was clear that she was British. Before the man could even ask, Cori took out her I.D. and showed that she was old enough to drink. She got that a lot while traveling. Due to her being born a Lycan, she ages extremely slow. As she waited for her food and shot to arrive, she overheard Seth talking to Dawn. A vampire that didn't like blood was something Cori had never heard of before, and he called her a fire-starter which peaked her interests even more.
Dawn was unsure about drinking the blood in front of her but she felt more comfortable with Seth there. Besides, the comment about her mom made her more willing to drink and a little sad which was noticeable in her eyes. She picked up the glass, her hand shaking a bit so she had to hold it with two hands. When she started drinking, it was like the first time she drank. She couldn't stop until there was no more left. After she was done, she put the glass down and looked refreshed. Vinnie came back over and set down a plate with a burger on it, without the bun, and a shot. He set that down in front of Cori and walked away with a smile. Immediately, Cori started eating the burger and it was obvious that she hadn't eaten in a while. It was gone within two minutes and so was the shot. "So Seth, tell me about yourself. Where are you from? How long have you been.. you know? And have you ever been to London?" Her English accent had a judging tune to it and she didn't look too accepting at the moment.
Dawn could feel the tension coming from Cori towards Seth, she wasn't sure what was going on inside Cori's head but from the look on her face there was something she was holding back, especially from asking so many specific questions. The whole time, Dawn tried to stay quiet since she could tell that this was about to either awkward or very interesting. She, in fact, didn't know much about Seth. He's always just been there. So it was a relief that all of her questions can be answered without actually having to ask them.
Vladimir was walking around with his guards and saw the same lady that Dawn had seen towards the town square. She was passing out flyers with Christian's picture on it. He couldn't have suspicion arising again about these disappearances. That's why they have monthly sacrifices from the prisons or anyone who makes disturbances in town. Vladimir approached the woman and told her that he could be of assistance to find her lost son and to follow one of his guards. The guard would then lead her into the Vatican and lock her into the dungeon where the humans all were. Vladimir continued searching through the town thoroughly.
The Lycan looked at Cori thoughtfully for a moment. Before he answered her he held up two fingers at Vinnie. The tall human nodded and started making up a second glass for Dawn. Seth knew that she didn't like to drink however he also knew that she needed it more that she thought. A bit more blood in her system and she would be back to normal. Seth beleved that she might even feel better than ever before.
Seth spoke carefully to the female Lycan before him. "Normally you would intoduce yourself before you started asking questions like that. However for now I will answer a few questions and we can get the formalitys aside later." Seth was quiet as Vinnie placed the glass before Dawn and took Cori's empty plate and glass before replacing her shot. "On the house missy." Vinnie said to her then left the table before she could respond.
The Lycan looked back at Cori again. "For your first question. I belive I'm from somewhere in England however I never knew my family so I couldn't tell you for sure. Second, I've been this way for as long as I can remember. Third, I've been there on a few occacaions but not for about twenty or so years." Seth cocked his head at her a bit and his eyes flashed for a moment. "Now I would ask you to calm yourself. Anger is a bad smell for one with looks like yourself."
"I should also let you know what you have walked into in this city." Seth put his hand on Dawn's back. He was speaking just low enough for their table to hear. The nearby Lycan's might hear however they wouldn't tell their vampire masters unless ordered. Otherwise they had no wish to risk angering Seth. "This is Dawn, she is the only daughter of the leader of this city, her fathers name is Vladmir, you may have heard of him even in London. Vladmir will wish to welcome you to his city himself however you may not like the dress code for most of our kind." The lycan looked to his left spotting on of the biggest Lycan's there. "Look at his neck." he said to Cori tilting his head at the Lycan.
The large Lycan heard Seth and without even looking over he pulled down his shirt collar so that his other collar, his dog collar as some vampires liked to call them, was in plain sight. "You will find out what they do in due time." he told her looking right at her eyes.
Meanwhile Chris had started to wake up a bit. The stuff that the doctor had put in his system was starting to work its way out however he still felt as if he was a bit drunk. "Faea?" he said more quietly than he tried to say it. He had never felt so weak before. Loseing blood the night before plus the anesthetic wern't doing his body any favors. Add that to the fact that he was scared out of his mind and confused and it was easy to see that he was having a bad day. His brown hair was still wet and had a messy look to it. The clothes that the Doctor had given him seemed a bit too big for him but he didn't complain. So far the only people who had been kind to him in this area were Faea and Dawn.
He was worried about Dawn. She had seen him getting dragged out of the clinic and tried to stop the gurads just to get hit. Plus that other guy had said that he had plans for Chirs. It was almost enough to drive him crazy. "Doctor Faea?" He managed to say a bit louder then fell out of the bed he was lieing on in weakness. Damn what the hell is wrong with my body? he thought to himself. Why am I so weak?
((btw Ill update a profile for Christain once I get a chance.))
Cori listened to Seth, she couldn't control her anger right now. Especially after he gave his answer about London. She recently turned 21, which made her assumptions just a little but more clear. She was almost certain that he was her father. When he told her about the city, she was shocked. London was already run over by Vampires. That's another reason why she had to leave but she didn't think that the Vatican would be in danger. Apparently it is the center of it all. When Seth pointed out the collars, she hesitated slightly. Every Lycan in the room was wearing one, all except for Seth and her. "It's kind of hard to calm myself when I'm between a rock and a hard place. One more question.. Why don't you wear one?" She asked as she drank her shot.
Dawn listened to the conversation, still wary about the new Lycan. She gulped down her second glass of blood, feeling more refreshed than she's ever been before. Her skin was returning to his usual pale tone and her eyes looked more alive than they did before. But something wasn't right. She could feel something coming but there were too many in the room for her to fully be able to tell who. But then suddenly the door to the inn swung open. There stood Vladimir. Almost immediately the Lycans started exiting through the side and back doors. Some of the humans were oblivious to who he was and the ones who knew left along with the Lycans. The only ones who remained was the Vampires, some humans, Vinnie, and the trio sitting at the table.
Vladimir saw Seth sitting with Dawn and what smelled to be another Lycan who hadn't been claimed. "Stand, NOW! And explain yourself." His voice boomed directed at Seth. His own Lycan had disobeyed and took his daughter out into the town. He's been very clear to Seth about Dawn's privileges and she is not to leave until she is fully committed to their cause. He looked at the guards and handed them a collar that he carried with him just in case he came across a wild Lycan. The guard to his left took the collar and approached the table with the other guard. Both of them grabbed Cori and lifted her out of her seat. Cori struggled but failed to escape their grasp as they placed the collar around her neck and locked it. She felt surges of energy running through her veins and it caused her immense pain. She fell to the ground and Vladimir looked at the humans who were now staring, he tapped into their minds and had them forget everything they've seen here and to leave immediately. Which they did.
Dawn couldn't believe her father had found them like this and she felt bad for the young Lycan. She had no idea what she had walked into. "I'll take responsibility for her. I'll commit. I swear." Dawn regretted the words that spewed out of her mouth. She wasn't thinking but she knew that it wasn't fair for the Lycan's to be treated like slaves. Vladimir was shocked by her acceptance but figured it was only a matter of time before she gave in. Better sooner than later. He nodded but kept the collar on Cori. "She is yours. I shall give you missions to send her on, who knows.. Maybe she'll turn out as loyal as Seth here, maybe more loyal." He meant to put emphasis on that last part, he was still angry at Seth for leaving without permission.
Dawn stood up and walked over to Cori, who was feeling weak from the collar being embedded onto her neck. There were microscopic spikes on the inside of the collar that was able to tap into the transformation. All Dawn has to do is touch the collar and transfer some energy into it and Cori would be her servant. She did as she had seen many vampires do over the years. She felt her powers being used up a bit as she touched the collar. It had been charmed to do this, in order for only that specific vampire to be able to control the Lycan. Cori felt a weird energy run through her veins, and whenever she looked at Dawn it was as if her emotions were gone. She was no longer angry, she was just blank.
Vladimir motioned for the guards and the others to follow back home. "I've got a job for you in the clinic, Seth. I want Dawn and her new pet to witness it as well. It'll be a good learning experience for them both." With that said his guards held open the door and they headed back to the Vatican. Once inside, Vladimir led them to the clinic and in the back room was Christian. He was bound to the bed and was just starting to come out of the anesthetic. "Dr. Faea, please stand by in case we need some assistance."
Dawn saw Christian tied to the bed and was wondering what they were going to do. She couldn't try to stop her father, she felt a barrier in her mind that blocked her from moving any closer. Cori stood there, emotionless and just stared at the ground.
Faea had heard someone whisper her name. Moving as Vladimir left and saw Christian on the floor. Looking around worried. "It's alright you need to stay in the bed" Faea said avoiding looking at Christian. Lifting him up and placing him back on the bed. As Vladimir walked in with Dawn, Seth and some girl she wasn't going to ask any questions. "Of course Sir" Faea said as she nodded her head and made sure Christian was tied to the bed and she had everything ready in case something happened.
As Seth entered the room he saw last nights nightmare laid out before him. The boy in his dream was tied down to a bed bearly able to look around seeing as he was drugged. The Lycan could tell that Dawn was wondering what was about to happen and that if his master would let her she would shout out as soon as she knew what was about to happen. Seth looked the boy over. Around 17 he was as old as Dawn looked. He had shaggy brown hair and looked handsome except for the nose cast. Seth had no idea how that had gotten there but if he had found out he probably would have started to laugh.
Before the Lycan had been dragged into this room he had been taken off guard by Vladmir's sudden arival. He hadn't even picked up his scent. The female Lycan's scent had taken all his focus from what else was going on. He didn't even have time to explain to his master that techincaly he had been loyal to him by helping his daughter. Now he would have to explain later, that is of course Vladmir asked him to. The poor girl had been taken off guard and the collar sapped her of her will. After a while of wearing it she would be herself again just stuck with the collar. For now Seth couldn't help but feel sorry for her and what she was suddenly being forced to go though.
However Seth felt more sorry for the boy in frount of him. His master didn't have to tell Seth what he wanted from the Lycan. He had been ordered to do this only a few times before. "Dawn? Whats going on?" the boy managed to wisper when his eyes finally focused on Dawn for a moment. That made things worse. The Lycan could smell something he hadn't smelled for a few years. Love. It came from the boy as soon as he looked at Dawn. For some reason this made Seth feel a bit angry at the boy but he wasn't sure why.
Turning a human into a Lycan wasn't a simple matter. There was a good chance that the blood of the wolf would just kill the boy right here and now. Some would aruge that this was the kinder fate however seeing as another outcome my be that the boys will wouldn't be able to overcome the wolf and he would be suck in a wolf form forever. Lastly if he did change then he would join the ranks of the Lycan's and have to fight his way up the ladder and prove himself in battle before he would ever even be able to wear a collar and serve a Vampire.
Cori was actually luckly that Dawn had taken responsibility for her. If not she would have been thown straight into the cages and forced to fight until she either dropped dead, gave up, or rose high enough for the most lowly of vampires to even think about taking her as their pet. If this boy was lucky he would either die here on the bed painfully, or would make it and Dawn or some other vampire took resposibility for him right away.
Seth needed only look at his master for just a moment to be absolutly sure of what he wanted him to do. The Lycan looked back at Dawn and made eye contact with her. He mouthed the words to her so that her father wouldn't hear him. Please, forgive me. were the words he mouthed. He could smell...no not quite love coming off of Dawn but he could tell that she at least cared about this boy. He hoped that she wouldn't hate him for what he was about to do.
The Lycan took a step forward toward Chris who looked up at him with some fear in his eyes. That fear expoded and comsumed him as Seth opened his mouth. His canines turned into curved fangs and a low growl resinated from him. After just a moment his mouth was nothing but sharp curved fangs and his eyes looked like a feral wolves'. Christain felt like he just was in a horror movie as Seth came closer. His scream started as one of fear and changed to one of pain as those razor sharp teeth dug into his flesh. Blood ran freely onto the bed. The bite was deep right in the area between neck and sholder. Before Seth even pulled away Christain begain to feel the blood of the wolf flowing though him and he started to writhe on the bed in pain as he fought the bonds holding him down.
The Lycan watched him for a moment as he pulled out a hankerchif from his pocket and wiped the blood off his face so that Dawn woudn't see him like that. The next few moments were the most important. If Chris could fight hard enough he would stay in control and become a Lycan. If not he would die or become a Werewolf depending if the blood found him worthy or not. "Now we must wait and see what happens master."
Chris fought his bonds until they threatend to break however they held fast. His blood began to turn black. The black blood was a good sign that the blood of the wolf wouldn't kill him. Next the bleeding slowed down to almost a stop. Chris was screaming the entire time. There was nothing that Doctor Faea's well ment medicine could do for him. Chris suddnely sat up in bed as his scream turned into almost a howl. His eyes turned compeatly black until finally a yellow iris appeared. His teeth became wolf fangs and then the scary part started.
The room filled with the sounds of breaking bones as his body shifted into a wolf form for the first time. The bones would break and then shift reforming his body peice by angonizing peice until a were wolf was left. As brown fur began to grow from his body his face shifted as well. The nose cast fell off of his face as he nose and mouth became a snout and there were no longer any screams. In their place we the sounds of a fighting dog. Snarls and growls replaced all human sounds. Finally after a lifetime that was in fact only 5 minutes the wolf lay still. The bonds holding him just managed to hold and now all was quiet.
"We will know tomarrow what his fate is. A rabid dog, or a loyal wolf." It would all depend on if Chris could turn back into a human or not in the morning. Seth would have to start his training frist thing.
Dawn couldn't help but stare at Christian bound to the bed. She was slightly confused at what was going on at first but when Seth had silently asked for forgiveness, she knew what was to come. She wanted to push him out of the way and save Christian, and she saw the way he was looking at her as Seth approached him. Dawn felt horrible for him, she felt like this was only happening because of her previous outing. Tears were welling up in her eyes even before Seth had started. The thing that made her look away was seeing Seth face morph in order to change Christian.
Cori was starting to feel back to normal, but just a little weakened. As if she had no Lycan abilities or super-senses. When she was fully aware of her surroundings again she saw a young boy strapped to a bed and noticed Seth hovering over him. She smell the change in the atmosphere when Seth changed to bite the boy. Watching the process that Christian was going through once bitten made her glad that she was born like this. She knew the pain he was going through and it brought back memories of her first change.
She was a late bloomer so she hit puberty around the age of 15 which was when she had first experienced her Lycan ancestry. She didn't remember much afterwards but over the years Cori has been having flashbacks of that night. As soon as Christian had turned into a full wolf she had another one. Her eyes clenched and she could see her sister cowering in the corner as Cori was tearing their mother apart. She looked back to Seth as he wiped the blood from his mouth and was emitting a lot of anger towards him all of a sudden. The flashbacks left the thought of her mother in her mind and her mother is only dead because of him.
Vladimir was pleased to see the boy going through the change very well. He knew instantly, once his blood had turned black and he had started healing, that Christian would make a perfect addition to their Lycans. The only thing left to do was wait, but before Vladimir the clinic he looked at Seth. "If he becomes a Lycan by morning, please give him his collar before training, don't forget to train the new girl too. Just so you know, he is my property, but your responsibility." Vladimir put emphasis on Christian being Seth's responsibility. He wanted to test Seth.
He was also curious to see Dawn fall through with her deal over the Lycan. He looked at Dawn and said, "Before I leave, if there is any slight show of disobedience on your part I will strip you of your ownership and she will be fed to the dogs, so to speak." Vladimir walked out of the clinic and went on to meet up with the other council members.
Dawn waited for her father to leave the room and rushed to Christian's side. Her tears were now rolling down her cheeks. She feared to touch him because she didn't want to do anything to upset his wolf. She turned to Seth and her eyes were drifting from his, it was hard for her to look at him now. Cori on the other hand was starting to heat up, she had quite the temper and once she's at a certain point it is hard to calm her down. She was growling, low but deep. Cori could not stop staring at Seth and she looked sad and angry at the same time.
Cori didn't have the courage to address what's on her mind, nor did she have the time before the guards had realized it was time to show Cori to her new room. They clasped a leash onto her collar and slapped on silver wrist cuffs that were latched together by a chain. They mentioned that it would be wise for Seth to go back to his cell and for Dawn to go back to her room. The guards walked away from the larger Lycan and Dawn to take Cori to her cell which will be next to Seth's. They walked her down the stairs and led her into a cage and closed the door without saying a word. Once the door closed and locked, Cori ran up to the bars and shouted, "Hey! Wait.." She was scared and didn't know what to do. She looked to the door on the opposite side of the cage and lifted the curtain that hid what was behind the door. She peeked through and could see wolves just wandering, looking hungry. One wolf spotted Cori and lunged at her cage door. She jumped back and let out a whine. Then she sat in the corner in the fetal position and put her head down trying to figure out what to do next.
Dawn didn't know what to do, she was too upset about Christian that she didn't even worry about the guards taking Cori. She didn't want to be mad at Seth, but she also couldn't help but be a little bit angry. "I.. I can't believe.. Why.." She was shocked at the events that just happened right before her eyes and was basically speechless.
