Twenty one years, though it seemed like an eternity. The pain of awakening was something that Mai-Kael had neglected to mention. Likely because they both knew now that Adrian could beat Mai-kael from one end of the heaven plain to the other with one hand tied behind his back. Yes, he was the Arch General's finest creation to date. Unstoppable, able to battle both in the physical plain and the spiritual plain. Adrian had been promised ten years but because of unexpected emotional outbursts, he was kept locked away. He endured nonstop mental training to make sure he would not become what his brother once was and it had taken its toll on him, he was tired, both mentally and spiritually.
Returning to his body was a shock, having not felt anything for twenty-one years, the sudden impact of thousands of sensation had him screaming. Camael had instructed his Brother to 'thaw' him early and make sure that he was warmed and fed, but the slight damage done by the cold still

Well, the night was a complete waste. Bethany and Charlie stayed out well past one in the morning and no sigh of the Vigilante, and to Bethany’s glee, no vampires either. They got back in time to collapse for a few hours of sleep before classes, thankfully. Bethany was starting to think that maybe, just maybe if thing kept up like this, she might actually be able to call the whole hunting thing quits and become a normal person.
It wasn’t like she didn’t enjoy it, okay to be honest, she hated it. He father loved it and he raised her to love it but she didn’t love it. She wanted to get a degree in whatever and just worry about normal stuff instead of worrying about vampires and normal stuff. She hoped Loken would be a part of that new direction, too. They seemed to click and she was really excited about seeing him again. Charlie had asked nonstop questions about their meeting and even she had to agree that Loken was obviously interested in her.

Adrian waited downstairs with Yin for quite a few minutes before Abby showed herself. It gave him time to considered what almost happened in the kitchen. There was no denying how powerful their connection was, spanning death and time without waning in strength. Yet, somehow it felt as if he was falling in love with her all over again. It was almost like seeing a friend you hadn't seen in years and then realizing you loved them suddenly.
He wondered if she felt the same or if she was just terribly confused over all of it. She didn't really seem to be having a difficult time with accepting it. Was he? No. He wanted her, he was just trying to go about it right. He was going to make her dreams come true, like she always wanted, not flip her onto a counter and screw her brains out. There were so many times he wished he could turn back time and have another go at things, now he had the chance and he wasn't going to waste it.
The call had been Paris and they arranged the me

If she recalled correctly, then this was the fourth time in her entire life. She tentatively places a foot forward, on to the cool glass. Decisions were never my strong point, she thinks. Knowing that this could take anywhere between an hour to a few days, she takes off the bulky coat, spreading it out before taking a seat in the middle of the cross-section. There weren't going to be any passer-bys after all.
Wait. I've...I've never looked back.
The thought crosses her mind for less than a second, but it clutches onto the messy vines inside her head and before she can stop herself, she's turning her head around looking over her shoulder and gazing into the mist-filled street. It's murky, grey, dark, and filled with heavy rain.
Why have I never looked back?
She doesn't know if that's really a question, or if it's something she's asking herself, but she definitely finds the confusion that comes with the thought loathsome, at best. Deciding

Full of sorrow, fear, and sin.
Broken at your feet I lay,
I carved out my heart today.
It was not mine to keep you see,
This injured bleeding piece of me.
I beg you not to turn away,
I carved out my heart today.
Better hands to hold it I know none,
It beats now for only one.
You will accept this gift I pray,
I carved out my heart today.
My soul was aching deep within,
I carved out my heart today.

turn grey and fade away, subdued.
To walk with you through all the years
and face, as one, our darkest fears.
We'd burn too brightly for this Earth
and share in sorrow and in mirth;
to each the other's soul would bare
and twice the love, at once, declare.
For each would know the other's mind
and there a perfect solace find;
we would be two, though as one known –
discrete though merged & mingled grown.
I wanted to grow old, it's true:
turn grey and fade to dust with you.

My shield of light
My defender from darkness
My ring of hope
My protector from evil
It hangs over my head
Beaming, shining, gleaming
It grants us great power
Over the others
We are unseen and unheard
We protect humanity
We are the invisible bodyguards
You hear our stories but we become a myth, a legend
In the darkest times you pray to us
To help you, to save you
We protect you always
Whether you pray or not
The darkness comes for you
You never feel its cold touch
As we will always protect you
For we are your guardians of the light
All our power, all our strength
Comes from your hope, your prayers
We hide it from the hands of evil
The source of our vibrant energy
The symbol for our race
When we cloak you with our wings
The darkness is repelled
By the greatness of our halo

With a peaceful song you are listening to
While dreaming you see the colors of sounds
The colors to the calm melody you are listening to
You see blues, purples, and greens.
They are moving in a wave like motion
Like wave crashing onto the shore
As the song fades
The colors and you fade with it
Into air and into space
Fadeing leaving no longer

I am living through a song
My heart is tearing
Need you here
Here and now
My tears are snaring
At my fragile heat
Being torn apart
Listening to a fast song
Feelings of Love
My head says is wrong
Shuffle to a slow song
Now my eyes are gleaming
But the fake smile is beaming
Through clouds of despair
Making others happy
Always drains my feelings
But I do it anyway
Because I know how it feels
So hand me the music
And I will use it
To fake a better life

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.
It's an intriguing subculture. There are feeders, mostly men, who proceed in, quite literally, well, feeding the feedees, mostly women. The whole process is highly sexualized.

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.

Abby splashed cool water over her face, forsaking her makeup for a much needed wakeup call. She was in a restaurant that served human blood. There was no way that that was legal but she was sure there must have been a vampire in with the health department or something. She was in way over her head with this one. She wasn't sure what she was thinking before but now it was painfully obvious that Adrian wasn't human at all, not even close, and his extended family might actually be worse.
Mael Seraph, a vampire? He was one of the most powerful men in the city, no, the country! Weird as the day is long but that made sense now. Maybe Adrian was right, maybe she shouldn't have come. She wasn't sure what she was expecting but it wasn't a blood dinner! She splashed more water on her face and groaned at the sight of her makeup running down her cheeks. "Well, you did look hot..." She muttered and used the disposable paper towels to wipe her eyes clean. She stared at her reflec

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

Loken hadn’t really wanted to get Bethany so involved in his life… not yet anyway. Things seemed to be moving faster than either of them had intended. Bethany did have a point, though. They were bonded and now by blood. There wasn’t much that could be done now except for one of them dying. He would do anything to keep her, commonsense was a thing of the past for both of them now. Bethany was somewhat of a loner, she only had her friend Charlie to explain to, but Loken…
Well, he had an entire family to explain himself to. His father was likely to disown him for this, his mother would spend the rest of her life trying to get his father to forgive him, Isabel wouldn’t care, Auntie Abby would think it was cute and Uncle Adrian would… it was hard to say what he would feel about it but Loken knew he would be disappointed in him for acting so rashly. Adrian had said that he felt Loken would be the hope of their race…things were not off

Bethany could have killed Loken for leaving her alone with Lurch and the other two vampires. She sat quietly sipping her juice and eating her candy. Her strength was starting to return but she was still unsure of herself. After Loken vanished up the stairs, the couple at the base stared at her and began muttering before meandering over. The female, Loken’s sister, was stunning. Her raven hair and bright blue eyes were breathtaking in person. Bethany HAD seen her on TV with her father but TV didn’t do her justice.
The male, well, she wasn’t sure about him. He didn’t look like a vampire really and as he got closer she realized he wasn’t a vampire at all but a Volven! She tried not to lurch back when they came within a few feet of her. “Hello… sorry, my brother really left in such an awkward way… I’m Isabel, you can call me Izzy. This is Haedren. Bethany could see now that ‘Izzy” had been crying. Her eyes
Vampire King 2 Chapter 40-part 2Den raiding was a tricky job and most of Mael's enforcers did not relish the work but Adrian found a strange pleasure in it. He assumed that his removed memories likely held moments when he was doing this kind of work, though perhaps not as pleasurable as it was now. He had always had an unfair advantage being able to walk in the sun and he used it as often as possible when stalking his prey. Whether it be for dinner or for justice.Vampire King 2 Chapter 40-part 22 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The dens were normally hidden in the worst neighborhoods and slums in the city, sometimes underground in unused sewer systems that had been cut off. This particular one was inside an abandoned building with several stories. The upper part was almost rotted entirely through and the building had been scheduled to be torn down within the week. If they waited for the building to be torn down first, it would be hard to find the rogues that fled, there would be no telling where they would go and that endangered more lives.
Essentially the hunting of rogues

Adrian was fully convinced that Abby was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Though, he might have been slightly one-sided on his view of her. To be loved by someone, to be needed and wanted, it was what he had been missing for his whole life. He had allowed himself to get so isolated he forgot what it was like to trust and care, Even with Haedren and his family around him he had still felt alone. He would have never admitted this to himself in the past but he had always wanted someone to share life with.
He had yearned to have a mate and always felt as if he stood outside a glass world, watching everyone else inside live. When Abby first came into his life, he bought her little gifts on his way home and she would always be so glad for them. He claimed that Haedren spoiled her but he had too. It felt like a fair trade because her smile filled his heart with something he hadn't felt before. Now, as he stood in the kitchen, fixing breakfast, he felt it again. He

Adrian's eyes widened at this revelation. "Ulveress is giving them sanctuary in the Sylain...?" He guessed. Paris nodded gently. "It was the final straw, you might say. I cannot turn my back on her atrocities anymore. She has gone too far." Paris said, lowering his eyes. Volven eyes normally didn't disturb him, being used to Haedren, but Paris' were a silvery gray color and they glowed eerily in the darkness. "How long has she been harboring them?" Adrian asked, trying to keep the note of panic from his voice.
"Around a year or so. They are devising a plan to sneak into this realm unnoticed by the Step." Paris said. "And how are they planning to do that?" Adrian asked, his jaw clenching suddenly when he caught the scent of a very familiar body. He had known she was following him but he had thought he lost her at the apartment. Paris knew she was there too, his nostril flaring just slightly in recognition. "Perhaps we should continue this another time." He said low,

It was about a full thirty seconds before Abby perceived that he was leaving after what he said. "I missed you." It wasn't really what he said, it was how he said it. Even after the vampires, monsters, previous life nonsense, that's what she was mind blown by? Abby realized she had a really bad idea of priorities. She followed him out because it felt like something important was walking away from her and she desperately wanted to make sure it couldn't. She felt like a complete fool trying to stall hm.
In the end her efforts were for naught and he vanished down the hallway. Abby slipped back inside her apartment, feeling somewhat lost. Here was an entire weekend to loaf and relax but relax was the last thing she wanted to do right now. Instead, she decided to see if this business card was legitimate and how long this guy had been in business. Obviously he appeared in her room and obviously he had caught a bullet but that didn't mean she trusted what he said. Yes, and

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.
