So, you can imagine how my run in with the angles the other night went over with those above me down below. Not well, not well at all. Now in my past few thousand years of so, I have had some dressing downs, and I have been torched for putting my head too far out where it did not belong, but nothing, nothing could ever compare to the thrashing I have gotten for the last few days. for a day or so, I wondered if I would ever again be allowed to see the sky of your world, or if I would ever know temptation of a woman again.To my deepest astonishments, I have been released to move forward, but not in the same direction I had hope for. Now, I think it safe to say, that the other night I made it clear how envious of humans I am. You, yes you reading this, you have the choice every day and night which way you want to go. You can see beauty and choose to help others see it too, or you can choose to destroy it. Black and white, all the colors in one, you can have the universe, you only have to make the decision and move forward. And, most of the time you and your kind spend most days complaining about the world you live in  and how unfair it all is. You waste everything in creation given to you on a fucking silver platter. So there it is, humans can do as you please; dance in the light, or hide in the shadows, but the choice is yours and therein is my conclusion. You have something called choice. What do you want to do today?

Now, as if you and your kind are not enough to anger me past understanding, there are the other ones who have one choice I would die for right about now, the angles. They are the ones who guide you to the light, keep you safe in the darkness and blind the shadows with their light within. But, they still have a choice we demons do not. They have the choice to fall, if they choose. They can give up all the glorious light, and eternity of goodness to live amongst those they protect, again back to you. Humans. So, what am I complaining bout now, well let me tell you, I have no choices, I have no possibility to dance in anything but flames and shadow. I can not simply choose to rise, and live along side of you like those angle who fall, so what else would I want? After centuries of watching humans, come and go from that paradise created for you, what else would I come to want, but the same thing you already have.

So here it is, a few nights go, I was in the deepest of the pits, being punished with my run in with the angle Shannon from that bar, Proof. I told you I was looking for some proof of my own, well what I got from that night was far from what I was searching for. All the while I was being burned to nothing, again and again, I could only think of one wish, and when the Serpent asked me what I wanted, I had the fool hearty idea to simply make it known, maybe there was a way I knew nothing about, or so I had hopped. No. There was only more punishment for thinking like a human, or dreaming like and angel. So after what seemed like an eternity of torture, I was sat down and given a choice; go back to what I had already been told to do on Earth, or make a fool of myself and try for the surface. Well you know what I want, and if four days of pain was not enough to dissuade me, nothing would. So the main dragon who made all our lives hell, gave me a single shot to prove himself, and his point of view.

“You seem to think you would be better suited to live with humans, rather then to lead them to darkness. Have you ever wondered what you would actually do if give that chance? They have to have jobs, they have to grovel, and they spend most of their lives feeling utterly alone. At least as one of us, you are on the upper end, you get to do the tempting, and not be the one being tempted. So what will it be demon, will you do things my way or go for your silly dream?”

Well, to tell truth, I had no idea what to say. I had figured it would be an eternity of pain and suffering for them to consider loosing one of their own, but it had only taken four days, and now I was being given a choice. Something we never got, but now, I had no idea what to do. It had always only been a dream, you know, it will never happen, so why give it real thought. So I sat there, on the edge of pain and suffering and tried to think, well I thought about it too damn long. The serpent unwound itself so I could see all the glory it commanded and I froze. I froze with the only choice I may ever be given and it decided to make my decision for me. To my surprise, it favored my dream, or so I thought.

“Here are the stakes demon; if you do as I ask and come out on top and still wish for your freedom, then it will be granted to you. But, if you do as I wish and see the error of your desires, I will promote you to serpent class and you can continue to serve the pits, but in a completely free domain. Do we have an agreement?”

I had little other choice, so I agreed, but then came the terms of this deal.

“You will return to Earth, and select a single human woman. With this woman you will not only be able to whisper in her ear, of the darkness, but you will be able to enter her mind and do as you will for one night. That one night you must push her further over the edge of darkness then she would go alone. If she truly falls, from choices you make, then you are free to choose your outcome.”

So there it is, my chance at freedom. All I have to do is completely seduce one woman into the arms of darkness and have her desire to stay after I depart and I get to become human myself. this could not be so hard, they were so easy to tempt, even in demon form, now I could actually make decisions for her, how was this supposed to be a test? So, here I sit, on the edge of a park bench, looking out to the Ohio river and consider my new position. I was give three days to find the woman to corrupt, and I think I had just the one. Though not a super model, this one had spirit and the body to match. I have been watching her all day and if she were not already in human skin, I would swear to you, she was my kind. She wore jeans tight enough to see every curvy of her ass, and just a hint of what her sex would look like without them. This was no mere accident either, because when she went home to change, she only changed into something more sexual, not less. They were supposed to be yoga paints, but were far too thin a cloth to cover everything when she bent this way or that. Oh the things I could do with a body like that, the moans, the screams and the ecstasy I could and will inflict on her being. She was walking in my direction, and since tonight was the night I had my chance at freedom, I knew this night would destroy this on single human woman. What did I care, there were tens of millions of them, one less in this world would not hurt the precious balance, and I was going to find my way to live as they did, with my own mind and freedom to choose my actions. Yes, this lovely little thing would be my creation, now I had only to act.

It had been made very clear how I was to take control of her and that was the only disruption, in my mind. I had to find a time when she was standing in front of a mirror, so I could show her my true form, and she had to invite me into her. How does a demon get a beautiful woman to invite me into her being? Well, this too is a reason I had chosen this singular woman for my dark game. All over the last three days she was always wishing to herself to have the power to get what she wanted, only what she wanted was not riches or power, but sex, and sex I knew only too well. I knew how to twist and tie a woman to their darkest desires, only to leave them forever wanting. Yes, this was the one, who would set me free.

The restrooms on the first floor of the levee shops was were I would spring my trap. I had found the perfect man to set her fate, and now she was coming into his view. All afternoon I had told him how he wanted her body. How he wanted to make her scream with delight and how he would give her everything that came with such abilities. He only had to act on the information I had given him, and she would be mine. Two sets left, now one, bingo!

His hands were out and already going for her round ass, the chill of what she now wanted was wearing on her face as she leave into his touch. She looked up to his eyes, hoping he would come to her lips, but he had been schooled by a master, an I would not allow this to fail. I had only one night to make this work and she would beg in delight before nights end. First the whisper to her ear, and the place to meet, after she made herself ready. Off you go my lovely, get yourself right. Only now he makes it hard, the payment she does not have and can not get. My own little play that was. The sorrow on her face, knowing she could not do what he asked, and she knew it. now it was my turn. A simple whisper in her ear to lead her in my direction.

“You know what you need to do, just get your head clear, go now, find the bathroom, and get it together, you can do this. Thats it, go on now…”

Off she goes, walking to my triumph and to her own doom. All the stalls are empty, the room is clear, all I have to do is show myself in the mirror and give her the chance. She is looking now, her own reflection and nothing more. First my real voice, then I will show her the rest.

“What seems to be your trouble dear?”

“Is there somebody there? Hello?”

“Yes, yes I am here and I think I can help you solve your problems, if you will allow me too.”

“Where are you,  all I see is my own reflection. Am I going mad?”

“No dear, you re not mad, well not yet. Let me show myself and then you will have to decide if you want him or not.”

Now, I had been told to become something more then smoke for her to see was going to hurt me, and hurt, was an understatement as I started to shift. First my legs and body, then my head and of course horns. She saw, but did not believe. My true form was so completely different from her own, but here I was, in the flesh, so to speak.

“Now, my dear, now you can see me, and you realize what I am, how bad do you want that boy tonight?”

“How do you know what I want, or what he wants with me? What are you?”

“What am I? What am I, are you serious? For thousands of years human have been tough to fear demons, and now you see one and you don’t even know what I am? I am his temptation. I am your temptation. I am the shadow who guides you to sin, I AM A DEMON! Do you now fully understand young one of flesh?”

“What do you want from me, I mean, how can you give me what he wants. I will never be able to give him that.”

“Maybe not on your own, but with my help, anything is possible. All you have to do is invite me in, and I will give you all your dreams.”

“Invite you in? Invite you in what, me?”

“Yes dear one, that is the ticket to your dreams. That is how you get what you want. You say freely that you invite me into your being, and I will do the rest.”

Now, I know all this is a bit over the top, but what else am I supposed to do? Stay a low leveled demon forever and give up my chance to become human and partake in the beauty that is woman? Not fucking likely. She seemed to be thinking it over, and just when I feared she would reject my offer, she agreed.

“Alright, I’ll do it. I will invite you in, just promise me, I will get him. Promise me I will get what I want for a change!”

“A change, do you not ever get what you want?”

You see, all humans do is complain about how hard they have it. Just you listen to her answer and see if I am exaggerating my opinion.

“No! I never get what I want. I have no job, no money and no way to make the world see me. I have needs and desires, but I am never what they want. What must I do to get his attention, just once?”

“Well my lovely, I have told you, say those magick words, and I will give you my best!”

An open mouth, a deep breath and then the words to my freedom…

“I freely, of my own will invite you into my soul. Do your worst demon!”

And that is how it is done! My essence burned from the inside out and my body evaporated to a cloud. I floated to her and started to merge with her flesh. I could feel her heart beat, her lungs fill with air and then it happened. I was able to see through her eyes. I was no longer a shadow, I was the flesh to be used and use her I will. There was a rustle in the back of my mind, I could only imagine that was her, realizing this was not what she had intended, but too late now. All my being, I had seen woman of this world and wanted to become one with them, but this was better then anything I could have done on my own. Oh mighty serpent, I do this for you. First to walk her back to the boy, and then to give him so much more then he knew he wanted. It was odd to walk in the flesh, but after a moment I got the hang of it. Out the door, down the steps and back to the bench he now sat on. Her mind was joining with mine now, and I knew she would be able to voice her opinion of what I did with her body, but she was only along for the ride, and she had better buckle up! The boy was taller then he seemed from the outside. I only came up to his chin, but I was not going to be on my feet, most of this night, that much I knew for sure. This body was all too ready to be fucked and I was all too ready to obey my own commands. He one was shy, and I knew this simply would not do for my needs, but he was the only one here and he was going to get the night of his dreams, though the soul I had now replaced was going to get so much more.

“I did not think you would come back after you knew what I want from you, but I am not going to complain. Do you live near here, or would you rather do it outside?”

“Oh, I think I can suggest a place or two, follow me, and then we can and will play.”

I led him down the steps to the lowest level of the parking garage. No one would be parked down this far, on a mid week night, so we would have the place to ourselves. I could feel the heat within building as I felt his hand move over my ass. I had to make sure she could still feel everything and then I would start.

“Are you still there dear, are you ready to get everything you ever dreamed of?”

“How is this possible, why could he not see me when I was just me? Will this last forever, How?”

“Stupid little human, you invited me in, and this is how we are going to play. Forever you say, well maybe, but for now, just give into what he wants of you and I will watch. I am going to step out now, but you will still hear and feel my presence, understand?”

“Yes, thank you.”

Really I take over her being and she thanks me, was I crazy to want to be this kind of creature? She got down on her knees and proceeded to take out the boy’s cock. I had not given the ld much of a thought, but he was more then ready to use this little thing. She opened her mouth and took him within her. She gagged at first, but after a moment she seemed to settle into having her head used in this way. I leaned on the wall and watched as the boy thrust himself into her mouth, deeper and deeper. Only humans could find enjoyment in such things. How long could this go on, I wondered, but just as I thought I was going to fall asleep, he pulled himself out. This time he got on his knees and pushed her on the concrete floor. Her ass was such a sight to behold, and when he peeled off her yoga pants, I thought I was going to be the one to come. Her ass showed beads of sweat and a need only his cock would be able to fill. He pushed her face to the cold ground and positioned himself behind her. When his cock was wet, he pushed it forward and found a wet waiting hole to sink into. His first push was nothing to write home about, but after he realized she was wet and wanting, he made up for it with the second, then third and so on. His hands found her long brown hair and using it like a leash pulled her head to him and thrust his hips in her. Her first scream echoed through the empty garage, but he was not moved to give her any ease. Over and over he pounded his cock into her as her nipples became erect and her mind pun in the darkness I wove to her being.

For more then an hour this man fucked and used her body till she could only shake from the experience. Her first scream turned to grunts and moans. Those moans turned to nothing more then the sound of a woman getting fucked like an animal. His first explosion was blown into her sex, though I was happy to see, he was not even close to being done with her.  The second time he went to push his cock into her body it was not her sex, that would cause the moans this time, but her ass. Tight, pink and never used in such a way. He only took her hands and helped her understand the only way it would not hurt so much would be if she helped to pull open her ass for his using. It was not as simple as fucking her tight cunt, but it did give a demon the enjoyment of her further fall to true darkness. It took him some time to get himself fully into her ass, having never been fucked before, but after his come started to drip out of her bunt and cover the new hole, it gave him all the lube he could want. Now his thrust was getting hard again, and now her head was, once again being used in tow with hair as a leash. Drool was dripping from her open lip as he continued to fuck her ass. Grunts, moans and a squeak echoed from her voice, now harsh with the dark pleasure only this kind of fucking could offer. His final pounding left her gasping for air, and her head hanging in pain. Could this be the end of the show, I truly hopped not. Out of her ass, and back into her cunt he went. Back and forth till once again an explosion erupted from him, into her. This time dripping from her to the cold floor.

He did not seem to know what else to do, I guess it was my turn to give the instructions. I could only whisper to her this night, so whisper I would.

“Get on top of him and make him be the one to scream! Don’t let this be the end, you have wanted this all your life, make your move girl, fuck hime. Fuck him now!”

She was an easy pet to control, he moved forward allowing his cock to fall form her swollen cunt. Standing over him, enjoying the turn of events about to take place. He rolled onto his back, and winched at the cold floor below him. She took her place above him and came down, like a fallen tree in a storm. Nothing so caring as making love, no, this would be a fuck of a lifetime. First her knees on the floor on either side of his waist, then her hands on his bare chest. Her hips were like open waves in a storm, only this storm was just getting started and she made sure he knew it. Back and forth she rocked into him, and once gain he exploded into her, only this time yelling from the pain of her not giving up. She wanted everything she had ever been denied, and she was going to get it this night. One roll after another till her hips stated to hurt, then a change of direction and now her ass to his face she started again. I did not think it possible for him to come again, so while she continued to use him, he could only lay there and take is. The enjoyment on her face echoed in my own darkness. This was better then all the times I had whispered in the ears of the ones I would pass in coffee shops. This was better then angels on demons and this was better then I could ever do on my own design.

She fucked him till his moans turned to screams, and he knew, maybe for the first time in his silly little life that a man was no longer in control. The woman I had chose was controlling the situation now, and she was enjoying it all the same. It was her turn to come on him, and when she did she pulled up just enough to make sure it covered him. Her body surged forward from the intensity of the orgasm. I could only think it to be over till his cell phone rang and with  bit of pain, he answered it.

“What! No, the lower level stupid, yes she is worth all your trouble. No, I can’t talk. Hell figure out why.”

He not only turned off the call, but tossed the phone back behind him. She did not seem to notice or care what he did. There was a look of madness in her eyes.  A look, I had come to know all to well over the centuries. A look that meant she was not quite finished yet. Echoes from the steps behind her made her head turn. As she did she saw two other men, of good looks walking towards her. A smile of pure evil crossed her face, and I knew this was the one I had dreamed of. They walked over to see their friend on his back and not able to move. One of them kicked him to make sure he still lived, but when he did nothing to stop them they only laughed at him.

“What a loser, taken to the cleaners by one woman. Hey Tommy, you think she can take on the two of us and do the same?”

“No way, look at her, she is all used up, we will have to find another one full of spirit to play with. John, just get him up so we can leave. The night is still young! Lets go already!”

It was not the kind of game I had planned on, but as I leaned into my girl, I emerged my essence with her skin allowing my energy to flow freely into her being. This brought her up and out of the trance in mere moments. The two men were taken by a surprise when she turned on the one named Tommy and all but ripped open his pants to expose a rather pathetic cock. The size not stopping her, she took it into her mouth while John unzipped himself and made ready to show her more. This was nothing to her. She may have never had a banging before, but she knew what she wanted and these three men were not going to stop her getting it. And so, it started again. This time her on her hands and feet face towards the feeling with one man below and one on top. Her body seemed to break with the intensity of the sex being given her now. The men came over and over, though it never slowed her pace. One after the other they both dropped to the floor with her still yearning for more.

Maybe I had given her too much of myself, but I had no idea what she would do next. The three men lay on the cold concrete floor gasping for air, and she climbed to her feet. The look in her face now was one of pure triumph. She knew this had been her time, and to my delight, she had not wasted it. She got herself dressed, and made for the steps. When she came out on the ground level, I was shocked to find the morning sun shinning blinding me in my face. She walked out the doors to the street and turned around, as if looking for someone. Her voice shocked me as much as her words.

“Are you still here demon? I would like to thank you, if I can, for your assistance. I would never have had the courage to start that on my own.”

“I am behind you dear. What more can I tempt you with?”

I knew she could take no more fucking but I had to ask, just in case. You never know, she may turn out to be so much more then a beautiful body and face.

“No, I can take no more, but if you ever need to tempt another human again, please come my way, I am in your debt.”

And that was it. She turned and made her way across the street and out of sight. I had almost forgotten one small thing, before she ws completely out of sight. I ran after her and drew her out of her fog.

“One last thing dear.”

“Yes demon, what can I do for you? Or do you have more men to fuck me senseless?”

“You only wish young lady, no. I simply need your name, if you would be so kind?”

“My name? Well what harm can you do with name? Sarabel Bruns. Anything else demon?”

“No, that will do nicely, good bye for now.”

When she was truly gone this time, I made to return to the pit, and the Serpent who was about to offer me my freedom. In the blink of a human eye I was there, and he was waiting. I walked in knowing I must have exceeded his command, but knowing I was about to get my wish.

“So, you think you are ready to join the human in their world to live, do you? Well I can only imagine you will want to be a woman. You don’t seem to think too well of the men. But have you considered what you have done this night? Have you truly considered it? You took an innocent young woman and turned her into something a demon could be proud of! and you just want to walk away from all this?”

He spread out his clawed hands as he spoke his words, and I realized who the test had been truly for. It had not been to test my ability to draw humans to my call, but to draw me to my calling. I had found my true ability this night and he was right. I could not jut walk away from my reason of being. I was a demon and I was a damn good one. I knew my future would be different, but only as long as I was allowed to continue as I had done this night. Sarabel Bruns had been my first, but she would not be my last. No, she may have gotten the fuck of a lifetime, but I knew there were other woman out there who still had yet to be fucked and I would show them the way. Led by serpents command.

Proof

Now normally you know I love the smell of coffee, but this night was not like the nights before. I had been abused an lowered, even in the standards of a demon. I had not followed through on my behest, and I was going to be punished for not pushing enough souls over he edge. As it were, my master was not happy with the lack of progress I have made in the last hundred years or so. I was sent out to find the darkest of souls, and collect them, for reasons unknown, but that was the task put on me. And, how do I spend my days on Earth, I look at human women and contemplate life as a free soul.

So, tonight I was walking along wondering if I should follow my mandate, for a change and I stumbled on a human collection of lost souls. A bar in Hyde Park section of Cincinnati, Ohio. I could not afford, after the night I had already had, to ignore such a calling. I looked to the sign over the door and found a twist in fate; PROOF. Could anything in the world be any sweater? I needed proof that I was on the right track, and here it was, spelled out in plain English. All or nothing, as the song goes. Could this be a sign from the darker sides of the universe, one step inside would be the telling.

I found an empty seat at the bar and took on the form of a normal human male. Nothing interesting, nothing you would remember if you saw me for a split second in your eyes. I watched as the bar tenders did their work and before I had a moment to think twice, the truth of everything was looking me in the face. not the face I allowed the human world to see, no, the face of what I truly was. An Angel of the Lord was looking at me with the most peculiar look. I had not heard the voice of the light in many thousands of years, but she spoke as if I were a fool not to listen.

“You do not belong here, demon. I give you this one chance to leave now. Otherwise I will exercise you and you will be nothing more then the embers of a faded memory. Leave!”

Now, I knew she had no authority to remove me from this table. The rules had ben set more then ten millions years ago and I was just as welcome here as they were. If she did not like it, she would have to consider the after shock of her choices this night. I simply smiled back at her and allowed her to see my tail moving back and forth in dark expectations. This, of course, was not the response she wanted to see, knowing a bar would be the harbor for many lost souls, and I, would be more then happy to push each and every one of them over the edge, allowing them to fall to the depths of hell below. So, here I sat, on my bar stool smiling at her, and thinking if she were not an  angel in human form, she would be quite beautiful. Long dark hair, though pulled up, just below he shoulders to make life easier while doing her chosen job. I could not help but notice two dark bruises on her right wrist, I could only wonder how those came to be there. Was it from tending bar, or something more dubious on the outside? An angel of the lord who also bruised, very interesting in deed.

Now, the other one, the other woman tender the bar, she was more to my demonic eyes then I had expected to see this night. A true demon in human form, much like myself. in the dark sight her reality was open to see, for  all of our kind. Dark skin, many more thousands of years older then I. Wings tightly folded on her back and making sure to not touch the angel. I could not help myself, I had to know their names and in being the human I now portrayed, I simply asked them.

“Excuse me dear, may I ask your name, and the name of your fellow tender?”

“This is my turf, you under skin, if you want to live to see tomorrow, you will leave now.”

Well that was not the answer I wanted, so I was going to have to try a bit harder. Did I have the courage to ask the Angel for her name as well, only a moment would tell.  She came back to my side of the counter and I could not help myself, this was jut too much fun to not poke at.

“Excuse me dear one of pure light and word, would you give me your name please?”

I could only be polite, I wanted to know, and much to my amazement, I was given an answer, though more as well past the set of names.

“I see you for what you truly are. What you think you will accomplish here is a mystery, but I give you my word, Lord of light, I will protect all those who desire His words over yours. As for our names, I don’t see what good they are to you demon. I am Shannon of the third light, Angel to the voice of his true words and faith. She is, like you can already see, like you. Only here to scavenge on the already lost souls of the human race. Her name is Ashley, and though you may think you are stronger together, you will both fail. I stand in His light, protected by any words or meanings you my send my way. I will protect those who need and desire the protection of my wings. Do not stand in my way demon!”

Not exactly the answer I was looking for, but I had their names; Shannon of the third light of almighty angles, and A demon just like myself, trying to make her quote by years end, and what better place to do that then in  bar, to the lost souls of Earth. I looked from Ashley to Shannon and knew who I would want to tangle with, if I were given the choice. Ashley, a young woman of maybe twenty eight, long flowing red blond hair , soft features and a body that could make any true demon jealous. Curves, breasts and hips, I could stair at her and burn for all eternity, in ecstasy. What twist of fate had led her to take on human form and become a tender of bar? I would just have to find out. The other one was something only the truest, pure of heart would take into their very souls. Shannon; tall, dark hair, and though it matched the color of my very soul, her light came from a location, not even we demons could offend. The high god almighty, protected his angles with a fist of protection, as his angle now standing before me. Sharp features, pointed nose, deep eyes and loving smile. Even a Djin would turn and run, if it came across this perfect creation. She had just as equally perfect hips and breasts to match, though the light within, for all those who could see it, flowed over the world to show the truth of all around her. Even I was caught off guard by this one. Though it would make sense. Why not defend the pure of heart, if a demon would prey on the rest? Even though she was my opposite, in every way, I could not take my eyes off her. Till I saw another woman, this one true human, walk in from the outer cold. She was drenched in black, from head to toe. Lace black, but black all the same. She was a balance, something we demons don’t ever see. She had the light of truth and purity shinning from within, but she also had darkness in abundance.

She came over to sit at the bar, order a drink and allow me to speak with her. She could have been made from the same mold as Shannon, but her life had been tainted in the slightest way, and to us who dance in darkness, it was more then enough. Though she was anything but shy, she did hesitate when I asked for her name; Abby. Like the monks who once thought themselves pure, till they left their beloved abby’s. She was accompanied by a human male, of fierce brilliance, He allowed space between them, but she needed and wanted to know about the world around her, so she spoke to me, not knowing of my true origins.

We spoke of her nature, of what I was doing in that bar, and of the book I would soon unleash to this world. She listened with true interest and then a comment of mine, about wondering why she did not have her mate on a tighter leash, seemed to care her humor. She was not like the others here, she did not need or desire to control or dominate he who was with her. She desired to be herself and allow him to do the same.

Had her race come that far already? Had they leaned that the idea of control was only but a myth, or was this amazing young woman just an enigma? I may never know, but I was getting the most demanding impression that the other demon was not happy about me stomping around her chosen grounds. Since I had already spent the day bing torn to shreds in the pit, I knew it was my time to depart. I took one more look at Shannon, and deeply wished for the courage to speak to her about things, I was not allowed to even consider. Demons were only allowed to tread so far into the realm of light, and angles knew better then to tread into the realm of darkness, otherwise they may truly fall. So here we both stood, on the precipice of light and dark. Both wondering if the other would falter. Both wondering what life on the other side would be like, or so I thought. Right as the though passed through my mind, a flash of light blinded me to the realization of how this night would progress, if I did not leave now. Three other angles now stood between myself and Shannon. She was now taking the position of the souls around her to nothing. She would protect the innocence,  no matter the cost.

In that moment, I knew the true difference between them and us, we would only go so far to push humans over the edge, but the angles, backed by the hand of god, would protect the innocent no matter the cost. I stole one last look in her direction, and as if she knew my  deepest desire, she smiled at me, turned and then I left.

On the cold darkened street, I couldn’t  help but wonder about how Ashley was allowed to work in the same proximity as an angel of the lord? How did she get away with being there, but I did not, would any of this ever make sense to me? I could not tell you. All I knew was I had spent the night in the presence of true light and true darkness and I had been allowed to move on, not being taken by either. Would Shannon allow me to continue on without hindrance, or would she send more of her kind after me? All I knew, walking down the lonely streets was simple. I envied them, the angles. they were backed by something more powerful the darkness and they knew it. We never had anyone to back us up, if we were caught outside the lines, no one came to our rescue, but now I knew, I had seen the determination of the light, and I, a demon, would never forget. I had found my answer in the world, and in the bar; Proof. One day I like to think I will return, but I am not sure what would become of me if I did. Till then I will always remember Shannon an the exquisite light she had, shinning from within.

I am of the dark. She is of the light. Would I ever be free of these feelings I now had for the opposite side of the universe, and a bartender named Shannon? I can not answer at this time. Darkness encloses me…

The Golden Ember

She walked into the shop today, the one I have been watching for some time. I could not take my eyes off her, though she was not dressed in any special way. Everything else was in place, her long golden hair, braided across the top, like her mother had done before her and that combination of smooth wide hips and supple breast line. Oh those dear parents, they had made something special when they fucked in the making of you. This is the third time I have seen you. Normally I don’t come back to the same place over and over again, but the thoughts that pass through my evil brain when I see you are just enough to break my normal routine. Right now, you must be reading this and wondering what kind of a demon keeps a journal, but I will tell you simply, I have one true weakness, that is beyond just the every day run of the mill human. If ever there was something in the universe made to tempt and torment all life, it was the creation of a perfect women. Now I know to think one perfect is some kind of sin, but I am already a demon, what the hell else can you condemn me too? Really I think those of us born of fire have it best of all. We are not raised coated in sugar. We are not brought up thinking there is a place for us at some golden table. No, we are told how it is from the fucking start. You are evil, go out and do something with it. Now I must say, the youth years, all three thousand of them are kind of hard. no one takes you under their wings and tells you how to torment the human soul. You have to go out and make a complete fool of yourself and figure it all out for yourself, but damn, when you get it right, it just makes you burn that much hotter.

So, here I sit, in this den of roasted beans, named after the Goddess of old,to those who think more to drink from one source then another, and I watch you humans come and go. I see the unity in so many, think of all the ways I could burn you out, but then, one comes along, like this little golden ember and I know why I was made. I was made to make others feel something so much hotter then the rest. Born to help you see the way to a woman’s heart is thought the fires of hell. Now even those among my kind wonder if I was not made just a bit too fucked up, but we all have to have our hobbies, an this is mine.  I watch you all, don’t get me wrong, but when I see a certain kind of woman, with close to perfect curves, a mind to think for herself, I just can’t help myself, I have to dig in and find all the ways to make her squirm, at first. But, in time I find out every dark evil secret they have and I show them how to use that against their mortal enemy, man. So why me you may ask, why not. I mean come on, she know she is wondrous to look at, you can already see it when she looks to the guy next to her. Yes, she knows what her bosom and hips are doing to him, but that is all part of the fun, She is woman after all. You think she goes to all that trouble to make herself all done up just for her professors, hell no! I dance in flames from the start and she even heats me up,!

A bit on my background, for those of you who care. I would like to think some of you are interested in the one telling the story, and not just the store its self. My name is a bit of a mouthful for your kind, so I will cut it down a bit. E’triakk is close enough. I am not the most powerful demon out there, a bit more on the path to annoy and corrupt then do all out distruction of the world. I have no kind of family, not like you would call it anyway. I am, in your calendar, around six thousand years old and I am just getting started. The first time I was allowed to come to Earth was the last time I ever had a clear mind. I knew, from the very beginning, how I was going to spread my mischief to this little blue globe, women to man. Now, the supreme above me had other planes, but since there are ver few rules for my kind, he could not help but be impressed with my fascination and desires for the female version of the human race. As I was saying, the first time I came to this world, I was taken by many things, the sights, not just women, the many tastes and most of all the smells. There is little to nothing to smell in hell but burnt, this and that, but here on Earth everything has a smell. Even you humans, with you pheromones. And, let me tell you what, those are smells I can corrupt with. The other smell that I can’t seem to get enough of is the smell of roasting coffee. Now roasting is something all my kind are familiar with, but to roast  bean, and then filter scalding hot water through it, oh, I would think it were you humans trying to torment us, not the other way around! Damn!.

Now Wait! The golden ember is sitting down, for a change. Normally she gets her drink and simply goes away, leaving me to ponder in my own flames of misery, but not this day. I had said she was not wearing anything out of he ordinary, will that may have been a bit short sighted on my part. A lovely form fitting brow skirt, down across her knees. Knee high tan riding boots and a bluish sweater, scarf surrounding her head. Her hair is the combination of many shades of gold, not just that bleached stuff of so many fake blonds. No, this ember has real, a thick burning gold main, as if her hair were flowing waves of fire to burn her onlookers with. Need I say more? As you can tell, I have a bit of a thing for this one. Most of the time I lean more towards the dark brown ladies, but every now and again the golden firs burns to my black little soul. A young man is coming over to sit with her, and though she looks less then pleased, she is not going to deny the attention he is willing to give. Small talk, are you fucking kidding me, is he nine with no balls? Come on man, fall to your fucking knees and worship this one, show her what you really feel and how you will worship her if you could just once, run your hand over her tempting form.

You are laughing at me now, aren’t you. Really, you think this kind of walking sculpture is a normal every day thing. Keep dreaming. You would fall to your knees if this ember would allow you into her personal bubble for a bit of time and you know it, so stop laughing.

There’s another on, and another, what is this, is another of my kind making these woman come in today, just to push me too far. I normally don’t want to go prod, but I may be making a few exceptions today. I could slide a burning claw over a single nipple, bring a bit of heat between her soft thy’s and endure a bit of internal excitement to come forth! How do these little men just stand around and not run to true sin, how can they not do anything about what is right fucking next to them? I will never know.

She looks to him, shows a bit of interest and he only say’s hello. The depth of desire is on her face man, what would it take for you to man up? Must I tempt you further. I get to my feet, stroll over to him and whisper my evil mind to his soul, and we will just have to see.

“She wants more then your words, she wants your true attention. Stop being a boy, and use your manhood. Look at he breasts, imagine them bare! And, those hips, what could this woman do to you, if you would only give the slightest reason…”

And now for her, my golden ember, what shall I whisper to you my dear?

“Make him see you, make him want in so many ways. That’s it, slide your hand over your breasts, give him something to think about. Give him something to want. Give him something to need. Yes, breath a bit heavy, up and down with your breasts, now slid that hand down under the table and use your tongue to taste the lid of your drink, let him see and let him want!”

Now seriously, can you think of a better job for all eternity then mine, I can’t. Temptation, and vanity, what an adorable couple. I will just have to let you think about this one a bit. My job here is done, at least for the day. The seed is planted and the fruit already grows within. Now go forth children and make your needs known. This demon is checking out…

Three Guardians

oceans of darkness came before,
reasons of concern, from councils door.
three were met from light within
knowing only they need begin

Duty theirs, though time was lost
lives were spent, for oceans crossed
Three became a spark in smoke
that world may live and come to hope.

Anguish came and took their love
for lifetimes spent, watched from above
Would they end to see no more
for tears of loss on an empty floor

Now, three there are, as three began
filled with love, in time to end
could council find a reason born
for time of loss and families torn

heads held high, and honor bound
their voices spread, in gracious sound
Through all their pain and suffering
those three become to marveling.

So look within to find their truth
those chosen grown and lives from youth
these three they stood, with open light
So you could live and not lose sight

of what you find through suffering
three will die, so  bells can ring
in name of truth from distant shores
Since three walked on, from councils door.

Dance Within

Dance

Whispers through the shadows now,
Comets cross the sky
Twinkles from the stars above,
Dancing in your eyes

Nothing stolen, nothing lost
Dangers here and there
Body ready embraced within
Fragrance in the air.

Now we listen, now we wait
Fingers locked in tide
Feel the love, & know desire
Never to subside.

The air is calm, the night is cool
We step, not one but two
Common goals, and open souls
Our hearts will bind anew.

My heart is yours, reach out your hand
And know forever more.
I will not fight, nor walk away
My life and song are yours.

Both in the dark and shadowed sky
Our minds have spun in sin
The lust within has brought us by
Begin this dance within

Lost Souls

You think you’re here to study, are you sure you’re here to learn
You fill your cups with coffee, and hope your eyes will earn.
A’ bit of knowledge, A’s and B’s or just approval from those who see.
But truth of vision or sparks of lies, outward is shown our other sides.

The demons who dance into the light, to fool the world with only sight.
They twist and weave to bake their schemes, unknown are we, trapped in our dreams.
We paint our face, and choose our dress, to assemble forth at his behest.
But do we know, or understand, our lives are not, but a command?

Outfits say so many things, to perfect fit & marveling.
Hair is shaped, and structured so, do any see what lies below?
A whispered sound, or catchy tune, it brings us by, this very room.
But loss of soul, and troubled mind, we spin and fall from the divine.

So now we drink and show ourselves, the truth subdued put on a shelf.
A custom cast through ritual born, drinks of brew and clothing worn.
Few will see what hides within, the real fear & depth of sin.
Can we break this cast we’ve sewn, or is it fate, to live alone?

Tortured

Introduction

It had started with a simple glance across a dimly lit room more then three hundred years ago. I had never intended it to go on this long, but the more I watched them both, the more I was influenced to dance within their lives, and their hearts and minds. I could only laugh to myself as they moved through the crowd, thinking they were so different, that no one could live as they do, or as long. Though I was not like them, I was able to say I would, indeed live forever. They were of the undead of this strange world, vampires, but I was something altogether different. Not of their world, not even of their galaxy, but to them I was no more then a shadow in the night sky. Their kind were few and far between, these two were the only ones I had ever seen who stayed together, and truth be told, I was sometimes unsure as to why. They would fight, keep secrets from each other and even keep secrets from themselves. They would turn the night red with the blood of those for whom they fed on and then they would do a 180 degree turn and show kindness to a child the next day. I could not help but to be interested in them. Come now, think if you had all of eternity to play in the universe and you found two such as this, would they not intrigue you as well? I wanted to know everything about them, and since this vampire race of theirs seemed to live forever, or as long as they could understand forever, they were a good match for me, at least for now. One day I would have to get back to my reasons for being on this world, but for now, and this night, I would continue to watch and dream of their scream filling the night by my touch.

It had all started more then three hundred years ago, in the small town of Kolin, Czechoslovakia, just east of Prague. I had been there for many years watching as the peoples learned who they were and the world found its maturity. I was almost ready to move on when something caught my attention. There was nothing unusual about this small town, normal folk and farms, nothing more. But when word reached me of people being found with not only the life drained from them, but their blood as well I knew this small village was into something they were not ready for. I had been on this world for more then a thousand years when this happened and I had crossed paths with more then one vampire. The first time, much to his surprise, did not go as he had planned, but then again I was not expecting this world to have such creatures living on it. I had thought they would have stayed away from here, but I found reason to be here, why not the one race of the universe who fed and lived off the blood of other lesser races?  The first was a young vampire by the name of Cesar, and he had more power then he knew what to do with, add that to the ability to live forever and a profound knowledge of the universe outside of this little blue world and you had the makings of a God, so to speak. Cesar to the rest of the world was the Emperor of the realm of Rome, but to me he was one of the real vampires, of the race of Try’krean.  A world of never ending night, and all the dark and evil pleasures you might think to find therein. Those from that world knew nothing of right or wrong, or the ideas that maybe you should not do something just because it brings a moment of pure pleasure. No, this world took part in ever dark and evil pleasure you could imagine, and many you would not wish to think of. This Cesar was an original from his own world, and had taken it upon himself to claim this world to play with, at least for a time. But, even they grow tired of their own games and find reason to move on. Although, for any of you who have studied the history of this world, the Roman empire made a great name for themselves, they ruled much of the known earth and would have ruled all of it if not for the Try’krean growing wearisome of his games and returning to his own world. Now you know a bit more about the ones who claimed a small part of your history for themselves and yes, you must have guessed they left a few offspring, so to speak, behind to play with this world once they were gone. Which brings us back to my current observation.

I had only meant to watch them for a few days and then move on, but as life has it, that never happened. Sarah and Robin were two of a kind, both dark, bred from a world they had never known for themselves, but something within their minds and memories fed into their need to play with everything and everyone around them. Though I have watched these two for hundreds of years, I can not tell you which one is more sick in their own twisted way. Robin was more often in the mood to be the one who had pain brought to her, and though Sarah had a taste for the same, she was, on the deep dark inside the one who liked to bring pain to others. The night I had crossed their paths, I had watched them take turns taking pleasure in the torment of a young couple, who had just been married, though this happy news did not stop these two from making the night fill with their screams and eventually killing them. What I found interesting about these two if they did not only like to play with their food, they liked to play with each other. Most of their kind were only interested in hurting those they fed on, but these two were much closer to the original Try’krean. They wanted to fill themselves with everything they could, no rules, no worries, no concerns of who they may hurt in their wake. Only the need to fill their dark desires, and fill them they did. So the story began…

One
First Screams

I had just come from a friends home, the dinner of his wife was something to remember for all time. Chicken with a soft white sauce and wild rice, spring vegetables, and new potatoes in a rich broth from the stewing chicken. I had wanted to see them once more before I left town and knew, even though I had told them I would return, I never would. I had thanked them both, embraced them and their new daughter and then left the house. It was a clear night, not a cloud in the sky and the breeze was cool, but not cold. I had only walked a short distance when I heard the first scream. The laughing that followed was of a darker nature then I had felt in many hundreds of years. I followed the sound to a small clearing, where a small fire had been struck and the two women standing near it took my breath away. They were both quite beautiful to behold, but they too were also very different from each other. One had long flowing dark brown hair and the other had the same, but only shoulder length. They were both dressed in black and though the fire did not show all their lines, there is much to be said about not knowing everything all at once. I saw the smaller of the two walk to a tree and hidden behind that same tree I could make out the shape of two people being hung from the lower branches. The screams filled the night air, and though I was concerned about others hearing them, I was too intrigued to walk away. I closed my mind so that they would not know me to be there and walked down into the clearing to watch what was happening.

As it were, there was a young man and woman hands bound and they were both hanging from the lower limbs of the tree. The woman had most of her clothing gone, and I could make out some of it still smoldering in the near by fire. The man had no clothing and was bleeding from more then one spot. I remembered the talk about people going missing and how they had the life and blood drained from them. Since I was on this world only to observe, I knew what these creature were, and in so, I was not permitted to do anything to disrupt the goings on of this night. A small spark of guilt crossed my mind as I watched the two women take great pleasure from the young couple, but I knew it could be much worse. I allowed myself close enough to them both to see clearly what they were doing, and hidden beneath my mental shield, I watched them take turns of both the man and woman. I must say I was amazed at how long it took them both to pass out from the things done to them. Though their methods were crude, I was a bit amazed at what they came up with to make these humans scream. The biting was only the beginning. There was the clawing of their skin till their screams became harsh and choking. When their screams were no longer enough, and the two women knew the others would not play back, they started to play with each other and in front of those they had taken for their night games. The last thing that came from the young couple was the drenching of blood as Sarah and Robin sank their teeth deep within the necks and drained every last drop of blood from them. Then they turned their attention on each other.

Robin was the first to act, when all the blood had been taken. She had Sarah up on the bark of the tree in a second and was more then happy to remove her clothing with her teeth. She sank her teeth into her companion and seemed to enjoy the moans from this more then the screams from the humans. She released Sarah as the blood dripped down over her bare breasts, and though they could have been larger, they were well shaped and glistened in the firelight with the red from within her own body. That was all it took. They took turns making the other beg and cry out in pain and pleasure till the early hours of the dawn. I was not used to watching two women make love to each other, if love is what you would call this. Sweat and blood mixed with screams moans and cries of torment filled the nights air, and when it was over, they should have been covered with bruises and bite marks, but they did have that uncanny knack of healing and looking as if nothing had happened. I would have expected them to cut down the two they had killed hours earlier, but they did nothing of the sort. It was as if they wanted this town to know they were there and that there was nothing anyone could do about it. They slipped off into the sun just as I was about to get up and then they were gone.

I had thought to cut down the two young ones, but then thought twice about it. They needed to be found the way they were, and the two vampires needed not know someone had been watching them the whole night. I stood, dusted myself off and walked back towards the village. I had intended to be long gone by this time today, but then again, I had not expected to find myself witness to what I had found. I went to one of the local taverns and had an early breakfast. There was already talk of the two missing from the night. I listened and ate my breakfast without saying so much as a word. I was hardly expecting what walked in the door next, Sarah and Robin. They came and sat next to me and though I was concerned they knew I had been watching them all night, they gave me no warning of this. They simply sat and listened as I had been doing. A local woman from the next town over came walking in after a few minutes looking as white as a ghost, I knew she had found them. She stood in the door way and could only look in terror as she could not speak. I saw a small quick smile cross Robins face and knew they were getting a great deal of enjoyment out of watching this town lose their minds to the happenings of their village. I had a dark spot of my own hiding just beneath the surface and I took the moment to tempt fate.

“You two look as if you have something to share, would you like to share it with me? Perhaps?”

The look on their faces was not of enjoyment, but of anger and pure rage, that I had interrupted their thoughts and what was going on around them. I watched in fun as they tried to think of what to say to me. I knew they had never shown their faces here before and I knew I could just as easily make their lives difficult, if I wished. Sarah, as I have come to know her spoke first, though it was not the sweet voice I had enjoyed hearing scream throughout the night.

“What business is it of yours, what we enjoy? You should keep to your own food and not make yourself known, before you become the meal!”

They made no secret of their feelings for each other. As the words of hate fell from her lips, Robin found her way up under the skirt of Sarah and seemed to be finding ways to make her smile again. I wanted to enjoy this further, but knew I must not push too far, thus I give up too much.

“My apologies ladies, I meant no harm, just nice to see someone smiling this morning, and not upset from a few more missing from this poor town.”

“Maybe this town had it coming and they should learn to take more care as to who they upset of push out of their lives. Now I think it is time we should be going. I don’t care who you are, but if you care for your own well being, you will stay away from us, and not ever speak to us again.”

And with that, they stood and left the tavern. I did not see them again for many years, and when I did, it was the same thing, over and over till the streams and rivers ran red with the lives they stole from this world and the torment they brought to one town after another. I watched them from that time on, never allowing them to get more then a few days ahead of me. First from central Europe the England and then into Russia. They never stayed more then a few days, but when they came to a new town, the story was always the same. It was the youth they went after. I never tired of watching them, not even when they took the lives of the youth of a certain town who had made them angry a year or so before. It is well known to the world of vampires that the younger the blood you drink, the longer you can stand to be in the light of the sun. Silly stories about this or that and not being able to stand the sun were only myths for humans, the truth of the matter was much darker then most humans would ever wish to know. As a vampire, if you wanted the ability to play in the light of the sun, then you had to dance with the darkest depths of hell and be willing to take the lives and blood of the young. The younger the better, and though I had only spoke with Cesar years before, I could only stretch to understand that it was a drug that would never be quenched once taken. He had said something about it being forbidden, even on his native world. That you must not drink of the blood of children, but then again on his world there was no sun to hide from and this world half of the cycle was filled with the light that would otherwise kill you.

This world was another story altogether. I could live forever here, as long as I did not stay too long and allow others to notice I was not growing older. These vampires, on the other hand could not stay long at all, they had to feed to live and this was not the time of now. The populations of the old world did not overpower the need of two such creatures. I secretly hopped that this world would outlast the plague of the vampire.

Two
New World

In the early 1800’s I had followed them to the new world of America. I knew this was a new beginning for them and I knew their games would find new targets and I was still in desire of watching them. Over a hundred years had passed since the night I had tripped over these two, but I had watched them take so many lives in that time. They had found men to play with, and many they had left untouched and many more they hurt past madness only to leave what was left alive for others to find. Their tastes had changed, and I had watched and even started keeping a record of their actions as time went by. I had decided, long ago, that all vampires must be the same, but a few months ago, I was happy to find I was mistaken.

I had been in Boston for more then a month, watching and keeping my records of them when one night I watched them become the sport of two other. They were walking down a small dark ally when two men, I had not even seen came out of nowhere and grabbed them. I was sure the men would die for disturbing their game, but then the karma of life found Sarah and Robin. These two men were not men at all, they too were vampires, and not the human kind. They were two of the originals, Try’krean. I had not been the only one watching them, and now I was going to see something truly dark and filled with more then maybe I was ready for. I was close enough to be caught up in some kind of transport, for one moment we were in the dark streets of Boston, and the next we were in an open field. No trees and the grass was not like any I had ever seen. There were patches of soft sand under my feet, though I did not smell the surf of the ocean. The stars were clearer then I had ever seen, above my head. I was relieved to see that my being transported had not been noticed. I looked into the nights sky, longing, for the first time in over a thousand years to be home with my own kind, but then a voice, harsh and cruel pulled me back to this world and this night. It was scratchy and hard, no love was held within it, and no mercy would be found by its owner.

“So you think your abilities are for your own amusement, do you? Well we are going to see how you like being the amusement and not the amused this night, and if your minds survive the nights events, then maybe we will allow you to live.”

“Do you have any idea what she and I are, you fools, we will kill you when you think you are safe. We will never stop looking for you and no amount of time will…”

“Yes yes, you have no idea what you are, only the human words of vampire, no idea where it is your real origins are from. Well take a good look at my friend and I we are the origin of your abilities and we are much, much older then you can possibly imagine. We know nothing of mercy and you will find this night that you have nothing on us. Most of our children of this world we leave alone, but you two have brought a great deal of attention to yourselves and to your kind, maybe this night will teach you to keep a lower profile in your future, assuming that you have one after tonight.”

Their faces were truly stunned, and I might have even seen a bit of fear in their eyes. They were finding out that they were not the ultimate evil on this world, and that other worlds existed beyond theirs and they too had a dark pleasure. I had only heard stories about the Try’krean home world. About how they took the idea of pain to another lever and world altogether. The first of the two men shoved Sarah to the ground and reached out to touch her, and with that touch I saw a strike of energy flow from them to her, and then her screams erupted into the clear night sky. The other made his way towards Robin, and again reached out to touch her, though the response he got from her was not what he had been expecting. She only moaned, with a sense of dark need, not even she knew about. Sarah stopped screaming and started taking a deeper enjoyment from the night. The men pinched them, tied their hands with rope, and forced their bodies into one horrible position after another. This went on for hours, their screams and moans filled the nights sky, and though I could tell the two Try’krean’s were taking their enjoyment from the two women, it was not what they had thought they would be getting, not from the looks on their faces.

Robin was the first to push their patience, and with it, the pain and torture of the two women exploded into more then I had wished to see. It went from pure forms of pain to the using and fucking of them. The women were forced to the ground and made to look at each other, their hands and feet bound and then the sex was mixed with the rest. From behind they were both taken again and again. The men took turn with both women, and though this again, did not bring on any kind of upset by Sarah or Robin the men did take great pleasure in what they did. The women were always made to see the torment of the other, while one or both men took their fill of them. They did scream, but not in a way I would have thought. After hours and hours of this, I had to realize that we were not only not in Boston any more, but not on the same world. The torment went on long past the time the sun should have come up and then set again. Still the use of these two vampires was brought to the greatest amount of need. I could not imagine doing this to another, but then again I was not a vampire or Try’krean. Even a vampire has their limits. And when it had seemed like days, then two men took their leave of the women, with only a warning.

“This may have filled you with pleasure, as it has us, but know the next time we think you are overstepping your bounds on this world, we will bring more to hurt you, and you may not find as much enjoyment in it!”

And, in the blink of an eye, we were back in the streets of Boston, and from what I could tell not a moment had gone by on this world. Had we ever truly even left? Or had this all been done in their minds and if that were the case, they must have known I was there. The answers to these questions I never expect to have, but the events of that time were well within the rights of the men.

Over the course of the next fifty or so years, the woman retook their parts in the outcome of this world, but they never again pushed their boundaries. They were no longer careless in leaving bodies to be found. They did not leave anything to be found after they had their fun and they stopped taking the lives of young children, so they would be able to enjoy full daylight. Don’t get me wrong, they still took the lives of younger men and women, but never again children. Time once again stood still as I watched these two take their dark pleasures in the world around them. I wanted to join them more then once, but always remembered that I was but a camera to record, not an actor in this evil plot. That is until I saw them one night in the streets of Portland. The second world war had just ended and they had found a new place to call home. A place that the sun did not come out fully as much as it did elsewhere, and that they could enjoy day a bit more, and not just dance in the darkness.

They had found themselves in a home, not just staying where they took lives. They made as if to stay for a while. They only took blood from other towns, and from time to time on the far side from where they lived and in the bad parts of downtown. They found that the world was finding its own taste for the dark games these two had played for centuries. Groups of normal humans, other vampires, though this was never told to others, and even a few other races that choose to live amongst the large cities. Sadomasochism, the game of pleasure from pain, and the pain from pleasure was beginning to take to new world by storm and though it was not out in the open, it was out. Sarah and Robin had now found more then victims to play with, they had found others who would gladly and willingly serve them and allow them to drink and live within plain sight of the rest of the world, all the while enjoying games from their past. Both women had always been in their early twenties when they were turned and with this they now had the luxury of going to college, and living in much of the same ways that the rest of this world did. They recruited from Portland University and from the few who took the chance to tell others of the games they played with these two.

Time passed and though it never truly stopped again,  the games continued. I was ready to show myself to them again. It has now been more then three hundred years since last they saw me, and I think my little side show of watching them was ready to be seen, not just watched. I wanted to play with these two, and wanted them to take play with me. I waited till they were out one day, walking through Washington park, just above the Pearl district, and chose to show myself to them and see how they reacted. It was now the year 1988 and I was tired of only watching, I wanted to play as well. I wanted to see if they even remembered me from their long past, from the night they had killed the two young married couple in Kolin, Czechoslovakia. Would Sarah remember the threat she had cursed on me, would she follow through with it, all these years later?

Three
Forgotten Promise

They had not had a gathering in a few days, and though I knew they were in need of feeding, I was not willing to wait any longer. I followed them through the park, every so often making it clear that I was following them. Not trying to hide myself from them. I knew their tricks, they would go behind a tree or building and then use their extreme speed to find themselves behind those who could not see them move, but I was more then wiling at this moment to make it clear that I could see them move, knew of their well kept secret and wanted nothing more then to make myself ready to play with them. They moved behind a tree, a large pine, as this park was filled with and when they thought I was only going to keep walking I turned, just as they came up behind me. With a smile on my face, I looked Sarah in her deep green eyes and laughed. I could see the anger in her eyes, she knew without hesitation who I was, and the knowledge that I had been watching them all this time, knowing what had happened  since that first morning made her eyes turn from green to deep red and it was everything Robin could do to keep her from trying to kill me on the spot.

“What is it you think you are doing? Have you been following us all this time, do you know what I promised you the last time we met, do you think I was kidding?”

I switched my gaze from Sarah to Robin and back again. I wanted them both to know I was not in any fear of them. I wanted to see just how far I could push them before they snapped and started the game, right here in the park in the middle of the day. I no longer cared what happened, nor did I care what this world thought of what would happen, even if I had to start it myself. They did not understand I had my own secrets, that I could do certain things just as they could. I could even take us out of normal time and let the world pass us by. Neither of them moved, and this is not what I wanted to happen, so I pushed a bit harder.

“What, don’t tell me, those two men from back in Boston took all your power from you and made you need to behave like good little dogs?”

I never got any more then that out, Robin snapped with the mention of the two men and what they had done to them that night long ago. She grabbed me tore the clothing from me, and pounded me to the ground. I never even knew I was bleeding before I felt her teeth sink into my throat. I felt the heat of my own blood running from my insides to cover my body, the last thing I did before I lost myself in the game being played, was remove us from normal space time. I withdrew just long enough to do what I had done thousands of times and then returned to the game and those playing it. Though she thought she had me pinned, I was in no mood to only be played with, I wanted to play as well. I shifted the energy within me and turned the tables on her, pinning her to the ground and turning my teeth on her. I had only started to taste her blood when Sarah grabbed me by the scruff of my neck and tossed me away from her mate. They both stood and walked over to where I was sitting upright on the ground.

“You have much to offer, much more then we would ever have expected from a mere human. What are you, one of the same as the men from Boston?  And what is this place we are now in, how did you do this? Tell me!”

“Temper temper, you must know that you are not the only ones who can withstand a great deal, as you have noticed, we are no longer in the park, so to speak. And, if you want to understand what I am then you might have to behave yourself!”

Again I was pounced on, but this time by them both. They took turns clawing at me, tearing my skin and sinking their teeth into my flesh. They grabbed my long hair and made me see face to face with the dirt I was spread out on. I was strong, but not strong enough to fight them both off. I had never give in to being used or tormented before, but I must admit now, that I could understand where the moans and pleasure had come from that night in the desert of our minds. I felt myself getting used, and when I too began to loose the enjoyment of pure torment, they turned to a mixture of sex and torture. I was sure I would never again feel this kind of sensation, but I was gaining a set of ideas for myself. In an instant of pure need, I went from the only one being used and hurt, to doing a bit of hurting myself. I grabbed for which ever one I could get and forced their head up as I found myself within them. I took thrust after thrust to the turn of need I had allowed to build way beyond a normal need. Three hundred years was far too long to allow such a need to grow and when I was tired of one, I allowed myself to be pinned back to the ground and used for another amount of time. When I needed to fulfill my own needs, I found the other one and again gave her the desire I felt. My nails found flesh and found blood as well. It tasted sweet to my tongue and I could only imagine what it must be like to have to have it in order to live and survive.

Hours passed into days and still we tore at the others souls and blood of those next to us. It was no longer two on one, it was all for themselves. I got my needs filled and they too found they had much in needs that had not been used for a long while. They used each other while I rested and then another would rest as I got clawed and forced to beg and scream. I did not know anything could be like this. I wanted it to go on forever, but when I though nothing more could happen, there was a flash and again we were back in real time, and no longer alone. Before us were not just the two men from Boston, and Try’krean, but a few others. A woman of that race and another man now stood before us. They looked as if they were beyond madness. I could only look at them and smile. Even though I had never been to their world, their race and my own had mad agreements long ago, never to interfere in the happenings of the other race, and now this was my time to play and they were not going to do anything to upset that balance.

I did not have the ability to heal as fast as the vampires, so as I stood, my blood dripped from my body to the ground. I was in pain, but it was pain I was more then willing to endure. I stood in front of the men who had come before. I stood and made it known I was not going to bak down. There was something different about them this time, something more sinister. I raised my eyes to look him in his and then he spoke, and it was then I was sure he had no idea what or who I was, and he though he was going to break into this little party I had waited for far too long.

“We told you ladies once before if you overstepped your boundaries, or ours we wold indeed make you pay for it. And here we find you, out in the open, middle of the day, in a public park filled with humans taking whatever pleasure you wish from another. Is this your idea of keeping a low profile?”

I looked back only to see Sarah and Robin looking up at them with hatred in their eyes. I did not think they liked that these men thought they had the right to police their every action. I was more then happy to stand between them, but when the first man made to grab Robin, I changed my mind and decided to make them known of just what it was I truly was, and that it was they who was in a violation of a forgotten promise. I stepped between him and the vampire I was now enjoying in my life. And I got the exact response I had expected. All of the on-comers made a move to take anything they wanted. From one instant to another we were no longer the only ones in this little clearing. Four others like myself now stood between the Try’krean and me and the woman. Again they did not seem to understand who it was that was now standing in front of them.

My long time friend and mentor, Jamie, stepped out to stand in the middle of us all, and made it very clear what and who we were. This was not at all what the Try’krean wanted to see. I do not think it had ever occurred to them that they were the only ones, other than humans on this world. Sarah and Robin were now standing beside me and the others and seemed just as confused at the Try’krean. Now it was time for jamie to speak, and I was sure it would be herd.

“Has your race forgotten a promise made between our two races so many millennia ago?  We do not interfere in your affairs and you do not interfere in ours. This being said, I think it is time you return to where ever it is you were before you came here, or would you like to make something more of this?”

“You have no business here, this is not a world you occupy and we will do as we please.”

“Is that so, well we could claim the same of you, but we choose to hold to our bond and not interfere in your lives. This is your last warning, leave these two women and their new friend, and we too will leave.”

I could tell this was not going to be an easy argument to settle, but just as I was expecting us to start taking apart Portland, they took a step back and vanished. Jamie looked and me, giggled to herself and then my friends too, did the same. Stood in front of us, bowed slightly and then vanished. It was now the two vampires turn to walk in front of me and look at me in a sense of wonder. I could tell they had many questions, but did not know how to ask them, so I simply stood still and waited. Sarah walked up to me, leaned in to where my blood was starting to dry and decided that since she had no sense of what had just happened, she would just go back to what we had been doing before the interruption. Robin seemed to like this idea and gave in to her other and made sure to make me scream a few times before I remembered we could be seen by others. I again took us out of normal space and again we all started our dark dance. This time not to be disturbed till we were ready. All of our screams must have been heard all the way back to the beginning of time its self, but this did not stop the pain and blood from flowing. I don’t know how long we tool pain from each other, but in the end, we ended up in a tangled knot of bodies and rest in the blackness of exhaustion.

Four
Patience 

We all woke to the feeling that we all share, across time and space. Those feelings we all want and even need, but never truly believe we will have. We woke in the park, in real time and with dried blood covering us all. I was knotted around Sarah and Robin as they were knotted around each other and me. As we all took the time to unwind ourselves from each other, I noticed that the sun had in deed started to set, and though I was sure they had both had more then enough blood for one afternoon, I was wanting to get us all indoors and out of sight of those around us. I helped them both to their feet and took out a small sphere of crystal, I asked them both to place their hands on it and think of home, and within an instant, we were all three there. I could not help but to laugh at the looks of shock on their faces.

“How is it you have the ability to do these things?  You come out of nowhere, tell us you have been following us for hundreds of years and now you are able to bring us home with nothing more then a thought. Is there any chance you are going to tell us any of the answers to these questions?”

I had to think for a moment, I had to wonder how these two vampires would take to learning the truth about not only who, but what I truly was. They had lived in a world all this time thinking they were so very different, only to be shown the world of other beings from other worlds this day, and now they have seen and experienced first hand, the powers that reside within myself. I wanted to tell them everything, wanted to share what I was, why I was here and how I had come to see and follow them all these years, but the thought of what this would come to brought me to the edge of a fall I truly feared. I had always accepted being different as something I simply was. Had seen this world grow and come into the existence it was now living. I had always wanted others to share this information with, but knew there were rules in place for good reason. But, then again, those rules were for those called human. This was not in any handbook ever written for my kind. Just as they had never thought they would have to explain who and what they were to others, they simply ate them. I dug deep and chose to tell them the truth.

I walked to the backs of them both, knowing if I tried to tell them all I was, everything I have ever known or seen on this world, the feeling and desires and the hurts and loves, it would take a lifetime, and even though I knew we all had that kind of time, I was not in the mood for this to take that long.

“Do you both trust me not to harm you?”

“Yes.”

“Yes.”

“Then try to relax, this won’t take too long and it will feel a bit odd, but you will know everything in a matter of moments.”

I closed my eyes, found the depths of my soul, all the information I wished to share with them both. Felt the emotions it would take to give them a part of my very existence. I pulled on the energies of the universe and everything I had ever learned, and then with a tiny push, I gave them both a copy. It took more out of me then I had expected it too, but I was more then happy to do it. It was, although, more then either of them was expecting and they both fell to the floor with the weight of what they had just learned and felt. I knew there was no way to help through this, so I took a seat in a large red couch, on the far side of the room. I sat where I could see them both, but far enough away that they could have their space and take it all in, in their own time. I had been warned not to ever do what I had just done, there was simply no way of knowing how it would affect any one person. To learn that much information all at once. Minutes stretched into hours, and even into days. I could only hope that I had not hurt them, in any way that was not going to be permeant.

After a day of watching them struggle with this new information I decided I wanted to see the rest of this house, so reaching into my pack I removed yet another small sphere of crystal set it in a hover just above them both and set off to see this large house they had come to call home. I could not have imagined this place could have been this large. I had always seen them come and go, but I had never felt the need to invade their privacy and come within. From the outside it looked like any other house on the street, but what the other homes did not have were the tunnels and tunnels they had dug themselves under the street and god knows half the city. Rooms and passage ways all over the area. They cold have hid half the population in this place and no one would ever find them. I found one room that was locked from the inside and could only imagine what lay just beyond this door, but I would let them show me these things in their own time. I felt a pull from the crystal, and knew they were coming out of the state I had put them in. I was glad I had put that crystal in place, otherwise I may never have found my way out of the catacombs under this house. I pulled on the sphere and let it lead me back to them and the night that was waiting. I entered the foyer to find them both sitting up looking rather annoyed. I guess I deserved that.

“Are you both feeling better, I did not mean this to take so long or for it to affect you this much. Did it hurt either of you in any way?”

Sarah was looking worse then Robin, but it was Robin who spoke first.

“I think we will both be alright, but I assume you gave us everything you have ever experienced?  Otherwise I can not imagine it would have taken that long to assimilate it?”

I could not help but to laugh at her question, this got me glared at by them both. I was not use to being around them and taking in their feeling and knowing they could see me and know I was there. I was getting ready to say something when I felt a cold sharp grasp on my mind. I could not move or even think and when I tried, it caused me more pain then I would have liked. I was growing angry, but again when I tried to get out of whatever it was that had me, I found myself in pain and torment. I must admit that I am not one to deal with having to submit to anyone, or anything for that matter, but I seemed to have little choice. I felt another mind enter the house, and with that mind a body to go with it. She entered from the main door, but there was something very different about this woman. I had brought them here in a way that was not normal, maybe this woman was some kind of protection they had ensnared, but I wish she would let me go. I would hate to hurt her breaking free of her grasp of me, but I was growing angry and after I had given what they had asked for.

“What is he, and how did he bring you back to this house without using the door? Come come ladies, you know I don’t like surprises and I would like to get back to torturing the toys in the basement, who is he?”

“He is the one we have seen off and on for hundreds of years, and though this is not what you will understand, we allowed him into this house. So before you go and get yourself hurt by pissing him off, I might suggest that you release him. He is much more powerful then you can possibly imagine. I would hate to think we might loose you because you did not have the patience to learn about someone new. Sammantha, release him!”

“But look at the pain on his face, I like to see him hurt, you know it gives me such pleasure to hurt someone with this lovely ability you were kind enough to give me when you changed me. I don’t want to release him!”

I could hear the brat in her voice, and since they had warned her, and she had not taken the hint, I figured it was time to deal with this myself. Again I reached within myself and drew on the power that gave me live and memories, and with no warning to her or anyone else in this room, I released everything I had ever felt, in all the ages I have existed across the universe. The blast hit her full force, and the other two with minimal impact. This being my intention I go to my feet and walked over to the woman who did not have to curtacy to learn about a creature she should not have fucked with. The anger within me was greater then I had felt in some years, and now I wanted to repay her, the pain she had caused me. I looked to the two women standing not far from me and they only shrugged. Taking that as some kind of permission to play as I will in this house, I dove into her mind and pulled at ever hurtful memory she had ever had. Shoved her body into the wall and ran my now, very sharp claws, down the front of her blouse. The result was exactly what I had wanted. Her screams filed the house and the ringing filled my ears and soul. It is an odd feeling to cause harm to another, but knowing they had started it first. I opened my inner eyes within her mind and gave her a look she would never again forget, then released her and she fell to the floor. Sarah came up behind me and ran her own nails down my back, causing me to wince and growl a bit. This brought a giggle to her mouth and she smiled with the reaction I had gifted her.

“Yes, may I help you my dear?”

“No, just wanted to hear you once again, hehe. I want to play, want to make someone scream in pain, and though playing with you is so much fun, I want something to drink as well.”

I knew what that meant, she was thirsty and she was in need of blood for food, not games. I should have known, it had been days since I brought us back here and they had used a lot of energy to take in all my memories. I turned and  looked her in the eyes. I wanted to know about these toys in the basement.

“Well what would you suggest? This is your house after all, and I know you need nourishment, so do lead the way, I am more then happy to watch or even join in, this I leave to you. What would you like me to do with this one?”

Turning back to look at the woman who had enraged me, I wondered what they would do to her, out of dark enjoyment. But to my amazement they only walked away and went down the stairs to the tunnels. We came back to the room I had found locked and they both looked back to me, curious.

“Yes I went and looked around the house while you two were out, but when I came to a locked room, I respected your space. What do you want to punish me for not staying at your very side?”

Something made me wonder if those were the correct words to use around these two, but too late now. I saw the glee in their eyes and knew at some point they would take full advantage of those words against me, but now now. Robin simply walked over to me, reached down between my legs and dug in her claws as I tried to hold my ground, but the grip of a fully grown and emotionally willed vampire was not going to work. I sank to my knees and found myself staring up into those beautiful blue eyes wondering what I was in for now.

“I don’t care what race you are from, or what other tricks you can do, I want to play with you and make you know that I also want to own you! Do you have any problems with this desire? Hmmm?”

I got the feeling that no matter what I said to her, she was going to find a way to twist it and find reason to torture me, so I simply smiled and gave in. I had not shared it with them, but I had wanted to belong to another for too many years to count. I was more then happy to become to temporary property of Robin, who knows maybe I would find a place I wanted to be in this world, because outside this house I was growing tired of the world as it was. I chose that moment to see just how much she would allow me to get away with, and I rose and reached over, before she could stop me and bit her, full and deep. Her cries filled the tunnels and her anger erupted with so much force I was brought back to my knees, though I do believe this was the response I wanted. All the years of waiting and watching had paid off. Many have said throughout history patience is a virtue, well that is so very true.

Five
25 Years

I had never thought it would be years before I again saw the light of the outside world. Once in the room that had been locked I was lost to the sweet and evil torments they had created there-in. I had tried to maintain some kind of record of time as the days passed to weeks, but at some point all of it bled together and I lost not only time, but myself, understanding and a sense of what was even real. I was hurt and used by so many in those years. Within that room was an empire of more then just more tunnels. It connected to other homes of people who shared in this desire to be tormented and to torment others. The years I had watched them from outside this house had been used very well. They had created a network of tunnels that expanded over a wider area then any could have ever imagined. Those in this little group of theirs, ended up not being so little. Many of the most powerful people in Oregon were in this circle, and the rings only got bigger the further out you went. I had wanted to be owned, but never did I think I would be shared with so many others. I was fucked, used and tortured for years upon years. I grew so accustomed to my own screams that it no longer bothered me when I heard the true fear in others when they were first brought to this house and this dark evil world.

Over time I was left to my own wonderings and allowed to make my own pain from others. I found that there were only three vampires in this group, Robin, my master, Sarah and the other woman I had brought to pain when she entered my mind without my permission. All the rest were of normal humans, but in the need of pain or causing it. Most were those who had a great deal of power over others in the real world. These were the ones who needed to have that power taken from them and be brought to tears and screams in the dark. The ones who had no control, and were willing to pay the price to have a small amount of time in that seat, were the ones who were more then happy to cause the pain of others. The price was always the same, blood. The owners of this house were all vampires and they needed a great deal of blood, and they did not like to get it after the fact, they wanted it fresh and they wanted to hear the screams of their victims when they took it. One of the first things I was forced to do when I was brought within was to watch, over and over as the blood of the weak was taken in payment for the privilege to have the illusion of power over others. Far too many times that power came with the ultimate price, death.

Those watching would get too aroused and the ladies would get thirsty and they never hurt the members of power in the rooms they held, so those who had paid with blood, would be the meal to make up for the extra needs and desires filled. It was a brutal world, but I had wanted this. I have watched these women for so long, how could I tell them now I wanted to leave? Once there was a young girl who was brought in after the city had fallen to riots and she was nothing more then a young teen. I remembered what Cesar had told me about youth and blood. The younger you drink from the more power you gain from them. The only other secret to this race, was the way in which you took the blood. The more pain you caused the person being fed on, the more you gained as well. So if you did not have the mind to take the lives of those who were very young, then you could simply cause a great deal of pain to the older members of the human race and you would gain the same amount of power when taking their blood and thus their life. She lasted much longer then I had expected her to, but one night when the air in the house was extra heavy from hours of pain and blood being spilt, the desire from Sarah was so great. She wanted the blood of the girl and this time I could not just sit back and watch. I had to get between this young child and one of the vampires I loved. I cared not what I would pay for this action, but I had to regain to self I was when all this began. I had come to this world to help those in need, not to watch as they were fed on and hurt for the enjoyment of others, no matter what they were to me. Robin was at my throat in seconds when I disobeyed Sarah to give the girl to her.

“How dare you not obey Sarah! This girl is nothing more then a meal and you will move aside so she can have the toy she has desired for many months. Now fucking move!”

“No. I can no longer watch as you hurt those who have no way of fending for themselves. If you wish to continue with this little playground of yours then I will not stop you or stand in your way but I will no longer allow you or anyone else in this room to harm the innocent. If you don’t like that, well then you can try to get to her, but be warned, what I shared with you and Sarah was only a moment in the eternity I have lived. You know very little of my true self. Are you willing to test that which you have not seen over this one child and my duty to protect those who truly need my help?”

I could feel the energy in the room growing colder with each passing moment. The other members of the group all backed to the walls and watched as I stood my ground. I was not going to go back on what I had said. This young girl was going to see the light of day again. And I was going to regain the life I had left in search of dark torment. Sarah looked at me,and seemed to understand that no matter what was done, or said, she was simply not going to be drinking the blood of this girl, not tonight, not ever. But Robin was not so easily swayed from her anger. She took one step towards me, then another. I held my ground, but I could feel the fear in not only the young girl, but all the other members within this room. I went back to my first few years within the halls of Cesar. Back to a single conversation I had made sure not to share with Robin and Sarah when I gave them my memories. Back to one very important bit of information I had sworn never to revel unless it was of the upmost importance. How to forever kill a vampire.

Now what you have seen in the movies is all wrong. You now know they can walk in the light, but all the rest is also nothing more then smoke and mirrors. A stake through the heart will only anger them, they will heal from it, and they will never cease to hunt you in revenge. Holy water is nothing more then water, and fire will do nothing to them as well. Cesar had gifted me with the one bit of information I may one day need to protect the young of this world. I could hear his voice and words ringing through my mind, even now.

“What I share with you now is not something to be taken lightly. I only hope you never have to put it to use. The most powerful force in the universe is the same force that you will have to use to kill a true vampire, love. A vampire will only turn another if they love them, and when they share that part of them self to split their nature for blood with another, they split their ability to protect themselves. If you ever have to kill a vampire, you only need to kill the one they turned, or more to the point, the one they love. To do this you have to be of a higher race. You must hit them with a shot of pure power in the heart, enough that it incinerates it all at once. This will kill them!”

I could not take my eyes off of Sarah. I did not want to harm her, wanted less to kill her, but the blood lust of this lair had gone far beyond that of what my true self could allow any longer. Robin was under the understanding that nothing could kill her. That nothing had the power to stop her, when she decided she wanted something and therefor she could simply get her way forever. I had never shared this bit of information with anyone, not even others of my own kind. This was not the kind of thing you ever wanted to have to put to the test. But now, with Robin coming ever closer to me with each step, I feared I would not have a choice. If I killed Sarah I would also kill her creation and that in turn would kill Robin.

Everyone has heard the saying that right before you die, your life passes before your eyes. Well when you are faced with killing someone close to you, their life and all your memories of them pass before your eyes. A single tear fell from my eye and Robin took this as her getting what she wanted, though she could not be further from the truth.

“It will be alright my love, I will forgive all, just as soon as you stand to the side and allow Sarah to kill that damn child! Please do not make me truly hurt you, you know I care deeply for you, but if you continue to disobey me, I will make you scream so that the heavens themselves will feel your pain. Now one last time, move out of the way!”

Sarah was coming up behind Robin, close enough for me to strike and not lose sight of the child I was not protecting. I shifted my gaze from Robin to Sarah, begging her to stop this before it was too late, but she did nothing, again thinking that the vampires were without defeat. Sarah and Robin were now only breathing distance from me. The rest of the room was almost holding their breath in anticipation of the next move. I could only allow one word to escape my lips, it was directed towards Robin, but also to the universe. I did not want to hurt someone I cared for so deeply, but I had made up my mind to return to the light, and I could not go back on it, not when the fate of an innocent was at stake.

“Please…”

“Begging will not help you or her now. This has gone far enough.”

“Then I am truly sorry, for I can not allow you to harm her. Sarah I am so sorry.”

“Why are you saying that to her for, she has nothing to do with this, she only wanted young tasty meal, and you stood in the way. Now you will move.”

In less then an instant the rest happened. Robin made her move for the child and I was left with no other choice. I lifted my hand towards Sarah, closed my eyes, focused all the available power summoned within my being towards her heart, and let go. Her screams lasted for only a billionth of a second then along with her heart, the rest of her incinerated right in front of me. Robin looked as if she thought this to be some kind of a trick, till Sammantha also vanished in a splash of dust and light. Tears were falling from my eyes now, flowing freely. Robin knew what was coming, knew there was noting she could do to stop it. Knew this one child had cost her her true love, the love of Sarah and now her life and existence as well. I watched as Robin started to change from whole to dust in front of me, till there was nothing but a splash of pure white light and she too was gone.

The members of the room, one by one fell back the way they had come to be in this place. The young child I had chosen to protect came out from behind me with tears in her eyes. I was not sure why she was crying but I soon found out.

“Why did you do that? I would have gladly given up my life so that the three of them could live. They were beautiful, how could you do that to them? They trusted you and loved you as well. You may have killed them, but is not a part of your own soul not gone forever as well?”

I knew she was right. Knew that in destroying the vampires this day, I too had lost some part of me I would never again regain. I walked her out to the main floor of the house. It was the middle of the day and the light was flooding in through the windows. I had no idea how long I had been down there. No idea what the state of the world was, or what I had saved this child for only to give her to an unknowing or maybe unwanting world. I opened the door and the light flooded in only to revel that the neighborhood was completely gone. The trees were gone, and the city beyond. The riots had turned to fighting and the fighting had turned to war. Now with the exception of this house, which had been protected by the energies of the friends I had just destroyed, this house may be the only thing left of a once great world. I walked out to the light and felt truly alone. The young girl looked up to me with anger in her eyes, anger focused completely at me.

“This is your doing. You killed them and with them the world they had helped to create.”

And with that she turned and walked away. I had no idea where she would go, but I knew within me she had been right. This was in part my fault. I had allowed this to go on long enough for it to corrupt this whole world. How many had been allowed to suffer and die because of my own dark curiosity of the vampires? I had come here to protect those who needed me to protect them. From the start, I had sat back and hidden behind my title, my name, my very being and allowed to atrocities of this world to take place. I had done nothing to stand up for what was right. I had said nothing and in the end I not only did nothing to protect the innocent, but I helped to hurt them. This was my fault, and the fault of all those others in this world who had hidden behind names, titles, status and rank. Those who had the power to save an entire world, had sat back and done nothing. Simply watched the whole thing burn and then looked to the person next to them in the end and asked why they had done nothing to stop this.

The world as it is, is our doing, all of us. We all have the ability and responsibility every single day to do something to stop the hurt and pain all around us. We have the desire to be something so much greater then what we give ourselves credit for. We all have the sight to see a better tomorrow. See the pain, feel the hurt and make the choice to do something about it. Don’t just stand by and watch as everyone else ask’s the same question, why did you not help them?  How did you allow this to happen?  Why are we all alone? We are all connected through this energy called life. Love the person next to you, help them through their day. Help them to see the light so that they may help the next person see the same.
