Daddy isn't home, He's out looking for a fight.
No money in the bank, no food on the table.
He's in and out of jail so his paycheck isn't stable.
Popping pills till his body is numb,
He swears one day He's going to use the gun.
So he chokes down the bottle, He's a mouse of a man.
He says "It's hard to get by with two broken hands"
He's spitting excuses, He's pushing blame.
But everyone knows "broken records don't change"
So he's off again, searching for his fix,
Throwing women and alcohol in the mix.
Just business as usual, Age old thrills.
Not a penny to his name so He's footing the bills.
He stumbles in the door around 3 AM,
His daughters in the hallway, looking up at him.
Her stomach is as empty as her swollen eyes,
Her tiny heart has been broken one too many times.
Not a passing glace as he heads to bed,
He has bugs under his skin and voices in his head.
He's a disease, a stilt to the limb.
Neglecting his baby becau

Some may call it a curse
A life like mine
But others, a blessing
It's certainly a lonely life
But a fulfilling one and the best
It's my cross to bear
And I'll bear it gladly
Someone has to take a stand against evil
Why should it not be me?
I'm going to die; I know it, the many pairs of ice-cold eyes looking back at me through the slits within their helmets know it, too. Strange, how it has come to this, how after all my mother and father did to make sure neither my sister or I ended up in the hands the Chantry, this is where

You could do mating rituals of the Uru people of Southwest Zambia . Maybe get in a little field work.
Oh, that one's been done to death.
How about a fresh spin on juvenile delinquency?
Professor, there are no more fresh spins to put on juvenile delinquency, its been done even more than mating rituals of the Uru people of Southwest Zambia!
Well, I suppose there is a topic you could try, on which little has been written before.
Oh yeah? I said, piqued.
Yes. You could do feeders and feedees.

Abby considered the idea that she was completely insane and possible stupid for coming home with this guy. But then, she liked him. She wasn't sure why but she just didn't get the creeps from him even though she probably should have. The private lift they took was posh, to say the least. The walls were glass and metal in a diamond pattern. Some poor guy had to come in and Windex it daily, no doubt, Abby thought as they rode up in a comfortable silence. He seemed very relaxed, his hands were in his pockets and his posture was lax.
God he was tall and built. She tried to think about the situation at hand but his body was a hard thing to overlook when you were in a small and confined place like an elevator or lift. Also, she noticed his hair was silver again, it had been since she saw him in the alley. The ride seemed to take forever and she realized the reason for that was he had selected the top most floor. Better to fly off the roof, she assumed. "So, you can fly?"

Abby felt like she was in shock. She kept trying to rationalize what she had seen but her brain wouldn't accept it as real or a dream. Had she really stabbed one of those creatures with a piece of doorframe?! What the hell was she thinking? It was as if she had no fear at all. She felt almost at home with the idea of it. the way she had done it was... planned? It was the same feeling she had after the academy. When faced with the situation she had trained for, she simply flowed with the instinct that kicked in from training. That's how this felt.
Were these memories from her previous life? If so, she wanted to be fully reawakened. She not only wanted to join the fight, she needed to. The blood on the floor, the scent of it, reminded her of things she couldn't completely understand yet but she wanted to. Adrian got into the car and started the engine. He clicked his seatbelt on by and she clicked hers on as well and rested into the soft seat. So many things were swirl

There were two things that Adrian was sure about now; one, Abby was still the same Abby only older and two, she was trying to kill him. Though both could be considered the same thing. She must have felt their connection because she wasn't even trying to be subtle about it. He thought he would have to ease her into understanding it and perhaps even convince her it was true but she seemed rather...easy going about all of it. He was flabbergasted. When she had asked him to lay down with her, he was shocked. Grateful, yes, but still shocked.
He had thought letting her believe they were only close friends would make her feel less 'pushed' into a specific scenario but instead she seemed disappointed. Then again, it was Abby. She had wanted him from the moment they first met, though back then he had assumed it was raging teenage hormones. Perhaps she still suffered from them... perhaps he was suffering from them too. Some born in sense of decency was keeping them both from

Abby felt completely exasperated. He didn’t get it, did he? She was grateful for his devotion but she couldn’t just vanish off the face of the earth. She had a life, friends and family, goals she had worked toward and strived for. Becoming what he was meant giving everything up for something she could hardly remember. She crossed her arms, giving him a look. “Adrian, no offence but what we have had so far is a fabulous fling and a few days of pure insanity! You can’t expect me to change my life because of that. Plus I know how that vampire stuff works, I’ll be like a slave to you and I don’t like that idea.” She said frankly.
She felt she might as well voice all her concerns right now whether he liked it or not. This wasn’t something that could be annulled or taken back, this was truly forever. She loved him, she knew she had and she knew that she was falling hard for him now but it was just something she needed a lot o

Bethany took another shot but the woman was too fast, before Bethany could even pull her knife out, the female had her around the neck. “Worm…you are cattle to us, don’t you know that?” She hissed. Bethany pulled her knife free and rammed it into the female’s side and kicked her away. The force of the kick sent Bethany falling backward and over the side of the building. She screamed but it was cut short as something grabbed her around the waist, knocking the air out of her.VK3 Dark Savior Chapter 5 Part 24 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

An Alarm blared out suddenly, saving me from another bizarre dream. 6:00am was far too early for any activity to my body but I was somewhat grateful for the shrieking siren this particular morning. The dreams were always bad, always odd and confusing. I couldn’t remember the last time I dreamt of something nice. They say that stress is a cause for bad dreams and I did have my reasons lately. I was heading home after a long time away. The closer it got to my departure day, the worse and more vivid the dreams became.
It was that house, even after all this time away from Renwood, that damn house still haunted me. I had decided that I was insane after awhile and went to therapy for it but no matter how many times I told myself it wasn’t true I still believed. I’d never forget that face and worse, I still had the scar on my knee from when I kneeled on the broken piece of the statue. I had taken an application for a collage as far away fro

How long had he sat there? Minutes, hours, days? Sat there holding a hand that would never hold his back, never move, never touch him again. Denial, a common reaction to grief but was it always so intense? Did everyone feel it as intensely as he did? He had convinced himself that if he did not believe she was gone, she wouldn't be. How long had he sat there waiting for the blood he forced into her mouth to start working? When would he accept that it had dribble out of her mouth onto the pillow?
Her neck was bruised where it had been broken but that was alright because... it would heal. It would go away. He was sure it would go away. She would be ready for training again and their life together would be normal in no time. He was sure of it. The room seemed strangely quiet but it wasn't because there was only one heartbeat, it wasn't because he was the only one taking in unsteady breaths. It wasn't that. He started slightly when a gentle knock rattled the doo
Vampire King 2 Chapter 41 part 3 and chapter 42Adrian began to inspect the walls of the room, feeling along the panels for an edge to slip his nails under but he soon realized there were no seams. The walls were solid, thick slabs of metal meeting at each corner and he imagined there was nothing but solid rock behind them. Time was running out too and not for just him. In fact he wasn't at all concern about himself, he was concerned for Abby who was nearly defenseless against these creatures.Vampire King 2 Chapter 41 part 3 and chapter 422 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Adrian squinted against the unnatural darkness and racked his mind for a way to escape. He couldn't see the ceiling and he couldn't use his wings in such a small space. He tried to force his nailed and fingers into the metal walls but they were protected with some kind of magic. Ulveress was a sorceress and she wasn't above using every trick in the book to fuck Mael or his friends over. One thing that Ulveress didn't count on, however, was the fact that the Step spent twenty years training him for every possible situation. Including this one.

Bethany had strange dreams and in those dreams a nagging pain in her stomach she couldn’t quite get rid of. The hours before were a blur. As she woke from her heavy sleep she remembered a crazy pledge and Loken lying next to her but nothing else. She sat up and looked around the dark room, the curtains tightly shut. There was a small crack of light which let her know the sun was out. A sudden movement from the corner of the room drew her attention, though she wasn’t sure if it was the movement or the sound.
It sounded like it was right by her head but it came from across the room. Bethany blinked the blurriness from her eyes and saw it was Loken’s sister. She was getting up from a chair setting a book down. Had she been in there reading while she slept…? “What’s going on? Where is Loken?” Bethany asked immediately. Isabel sauntered over, her hips swaying as she moved. Bethany noticed that more than she wanted too and not of her
Vampire King 2 Chapter 21 part 2It was the first time Adrian noticed Mae-kael show any emotion and it was of annoyance. He glared at the Princi for a long moment before turning back to Adrian. "This is Hermes... though it is not yet his time to appear, he is here." Mai-kael said, his tone curt. Adrian nodded and acknowledged the Princi. "Lore is the one that shall begin this process. Your mind must be healed first." Mai-kael said and paused as if something was supposed to happen. Nothing happened.Vampire King 2 Chapter 21 part 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Hermes, where is Lore?" Mai-kael asked, his jaw visibly clenching. "Well, she is on her way. You know how she is all virginal and stuff? Well, I was trying to fix that for her and she... ran off." Hermes said and smiled awkwardly. Mai-kael turned toward Adrian, giving him a strained smile. "Give me a moment, please?" He asked. "Sure..." Adrian said, raising a brow. The two Step move several feet away and began arguing. Adrian watched, bewildered and waited to be addressed again.
Mai-kael returned after a moment and smiled.

I don't regret what I did. Seeing you again, it has been worth the ordeal." He said and smiled. How could that possibly be true? She had been a complete asshat to him. Of course, she didn't know what this 'ordeal' was and so perhaps it wasn't so bad. Still, he must have waited a long time for this and she was ruining it.

Abby couldn't believe how well she slept. She had been laying half naked next to a perfect stranger all night and she felt amazing. When she woke and found him gone, she almost thought the night before was another dream, until she realized where she was. Also the smell of bacon tipped her off that she wasn't home. Sarah did jack shit, even when she was living at the apartment. As she came around the corner and saw this nice, sentimental guy, cooking and a brand new toothbrush on the breakfast bar, she wanted to cry. Mostly because they were no more than friends. No, worse, he was her guardian. That sucked big time.
He was too good looking and cool to be her guardian. Why did the girls in the movies always get seduced but when she was half naked in the same damn bed with a vampire she got nothing? This was cruel. Perhaps she would have to turn the tables and seduce him. It wouldn't be the first time she had to be proactive with a guy. He was being vigilant of her even whi

He asked himself again how she suckered him into letting her go. The answer? He said yes! Now she was asking him if he would go out with her... go out? He could barely keep from telling her how much he loved her and she was asking him out on a date? "There, seatbelt is on, now, would you?" She insisted. He pulled out of his parking space and left the parking lot, all without answering her. This seemed familiar. "Would you care for some music?" He asked, trying not to smile at the pout forming on her mouth."No. I want you to answer me. If it's a no, at a least say it." She said. "Abby, I would go out with you but you know as well as I, that neither of us are interested in dating." He said.
She looked perplexed for a moment then her cheeks colored and she looked down at her hands. "There is more to it than that..." She said quietly. She looked embarrassed now. Damn, he was no better with women than he was before. He reached out and took one of her hands.

Bethany felt a chill rush down her spine at those words but he didn’t scare her. No, she was sure that Loken wasn’t dangerous at all. It wasn’t like he was the first vampire she had ever met but he was certainly the most polite and… well, cute. “You are so not scary, Loken.” She said and turned her head toward him. It closed the space between them. It put her lips so close to his she could feel the coolness of his skin without actually touching it. “Besides, we both know you can’t leave me now that you have bound us together… it’s impossible.” Bethany pointed out, again.
Loken’s eyes were fixed on her mouth and the need to be a part of him was so strong she could hardly stand it. He wanted her blood that was obvious but the other wants, the way his eyes ate her up was something entirely different. She knew she was sick for liking it but she did. “I could find the strength to leave if you
Vampire King 2 Chapter 42 part 2Abby had never seen anything like this but recently that wasn't so strange a thing. The roof of the car flew through the air as if weightless and the bus and minivan lifted into the air just as they were about to hit the car. The creature on the roof was humanoid in form but covered in a writhing mass of tentacles that slithered over its entire body and anything it touched. Huge wings, that were starting to look grimly familiar, spread out and cast a long and ominous shadow over the wreckage in the intersection.Vampire King 2 Chapter 42 part 21 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Julian and his cohort began scrabbling out of the car as Abby just sat there staring in complete disbelief. "Adrian...?" She muttered but the creature jumped from the car to the ground and skewered the two men trying to escape with its silvery tentacles.

The one named Karl started shooting and when this failed, he started to beat the pulsating appendage with his gun.

She held him back, pressing her forehead to his, breathing in his scent. “Let’s pretend we aren’t who we are... Let’s just pretend we are just normal people.” Bethany breathed.VK3 Dark Savior Chapter 9 part 23 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Bethany couldn’t help but find it strange that Loken had all but disappeared. Her anger toward him was now turning to worry as she heard two students saying he had transferred and wouldn’t be coming back. What had happened? Bethany wondered as she ate her candy bar in her usual break area. She would get the whole scoop from Charlie once she was out of class. Maybe it wasn’t her or him being a rude bastard, maybe something happened. Maybe there was an attempt on his life.
Bethany ruffled her wild spikes of platinum hair and waited for Charlie. She felt something of a strange nervousness about later tonight. She hadn’t quite felt right after talking to Vigil the night before. She had had strange dreams, intense dreams with him and Loken both in them. They reminded her of fever dreams where you can’t escape or make sense of what is happening. It alarmed her because she wasn’t sure what Vigil was yet and ever since she had met him she had b

So that was what oral sex was like. Somehow Bethany had the feeling that Loken helped it along a little with his inability to keep from thralling all over the place. If not… well, she had herself a talented vampire. She literally couldn’t feel her legs for the first thirty seconds after the climax but now, however, as the feeling came back she could most definitely feel something poking her. She wondered if she should return the favor. After all, it wasn’t fair he had given her pleasure without getting any for himself.
She wasn’t exactly sure on how to do THAT. It wasn’t like she studied for it. Though, she wished she had taken Charlie up on her offer for lessons with a carrot. A zucchini might be more appropriate in Loken’s case… or maybe a spare horse penis. “Loken… uh…do I… you know, I mean, should I do you, now?” Bethany asked, looking at him.

Hanz was not as powerful as he was before but that didn’t make the fight easy, Adrian thought as he delivered a hard kick that sent Hanz tumbling through his apartment wall. While Hanz was distracted Adrian found Yin and sent her down to the basement level in the lift. She was alone but it was better than being up there. Just as he was about to go after Hanz again he heard Abby scream and the direction both baffled and terrified him. She was lower than he was and outside the walls. He didn’t waste any time and plowed through the remaining walls for a short cut to the outside. Much to his horror, Abby was speeding toward the street below.
He bolted after her, folding his wings and arms back to increase his speed. He wasn’t sure he would be able to stop but he could take the impact instead of her. He managed to reach her just in time; his arms circling her protectively before impact. He cradled her head into his chest and took the brunt of the h

Young couples strode arm in arm, the gentleman waving a cane and the lady giggling behind a gloved hand, clutching a lace covered umbrella against the thin drizzle that accompanied the sight of the sky returning through the grey smog.
