A few hours later...
Penny pushed her Ducatti further up the slope to Caesar's door, she glanced at Aiden riding beside her and sweet smile curved her lips when they reached the guards, she pulled her bike to a stop, "We're envoys from King Caleb with a letter to his daughter." she breathed, studying the two men at guard.

Judas studied the Kane complex before him, it was full of monsters he'd destroy with bare hands, the snow crunched and melted away as he marched, an army of himself.

Aiden felt a crooked sort of grin curve his lips as he pulled the bike to a stop; excitement in his belly as he looked over the guards.

Anna had been placed in Kane's old office; her wrists tied to the chair as her pretty head leaned against the back of the chair, little moans of pain escaping her plump, pink lips.

Adam pursed his lips, "Maybe she'll tell when she wakes," he breathed.

Kira made a sweet noise as she leaned in to kiss him deeply, "I love you, Callum Walker," she whispered.

The guards seemed frozen for a moment before they nodded, "Leave your bikes, Caesar will greet you in his dining room." one breathed.
Penny gave a slight nod as she cut the engine and slid off her bike, waiting a moment for Aiden.

Judas reached the doors of the complex, his eyes glazed over with their milky film and he flicked his wrists to have them burst open before him and announce his arrival.

Cassy bit her lip before she moved forward to kiss him gently, "She was coming to summon me, I'll have to see him." she breathed.

Aiden didnt say anything as he slid off of his bike; something dark about his eyes as he looked over the guards and started past them.

Adam bit his lip, "Do you need me to join you?" he breathed, cocking his head a bit.

Christian Walker glanced up from his guarding place outside of Kane's office and he grabbed his gun before he started for the entrance, two other guards following him.

Penny moved to the front door, leading him inside and to the dining room as if she knew the place well; Gaius Caesar sat at the head of his table, looking handsome in his old armor, his beautiful Emperess stood above him wearing a gown made of the finest saphire diamonds, a crown of jewels atop her pretty, flowing curls, "Messengers from the King of Hell?" Caesar breathed, looking over them, "What is the message?"
Penny's lips pulled into a sweet smile, "He said to deliver it to Lucille and her alone."

Cassy bit her lip, "No, but I want you near, I'm afraid of him." she said honestly.

Judas' white gaze slid over Christian Walker and the guards, he cocked his head, moving so suddenly as to rip the guards in two before turning on the man, he kneed Christian hard in his spine and forced him to his knees, "You have served my daughter, Contessa, well." he breathed, moving to stand before him, "Lay your gun at my feet and you will live to serve her again."

"And we intend to," Aiden breathed, his dark eyes calculating and cool as he kept his gaze on the Warlord.

Adam gave a slight nod, "I'll stay close."

Christian gritted his teeth; his dark eyes shutting for a moment as he released his breath, "The doctor is in the office on the top floor," he said through his teeth as he dropped his gun.

Caesar slid his gaze over them another moment before he raised it to his Emporess, "Take them to the den, my Love, and scream if they try anything foolish." he breathed.
Luce inclined her head to her husband, bending down to kiss him gently before she gestured for the faux envoys to follow her to the den.

Cassy nodded, "I love you." she breathed, kissing him a last time before she started for her husband's den.

Judas nodded, "You will wait for me here." he said before moving past him and blinking to the top floor to meet the doctor

Aiden remained quiet; a sly look over his handsome face as he followed.

Adam smiled softly at her, "Tell me when I kick your husband's ass," he breathed, gesturing for her to move.

Anna still sat in her chair; a frown curving her lips when Judas appeared, but she said nothing, pressing herself back in the chair like he was the devil himself.

Penny followed her sister into the den, there was a similarity between them that it was easy to see they shared the same mother; Luce turned to them, "What is it?" she said softly, her green eyes shimmering.
Penny reached into her coat for a letter that she handed to her, "I'm sorry." she said to her, before glancing at Aiden with a look that said he should trust her and be patient.

Cassidy smiled to herself as she started towards the den, her husband waited for her at his desk, "What took you so long?" he breathed, looking up at her, his eyes darker.

Judas cocked his head at her, "Caden." he called, a moment before his disciple appeared, "Take her." he breathed, "I'm going hunting."

Aiden wrinkled his nose a bit at this, but he remained quiet.

Anna's light eyes widened some at this, but she bit her lip, silent as she dug her nails into the arrests of her chair; considering her old best friend as her rescue.

Luce frowned a bit as she opened the letter, her sapphire dress shifting in the light as she turned from them to read it, it was a few moments before she crushed the letter between her fingers, when she turned back to them, her eyes were full of tears, "She left him in the street?" she whispered.
Penny nodded, "When we swept through, we found him discarded, your brother had him buried."

Caden moved towards her to undo her binds, "Hi." he muttered as Judas disappeared to find Joseph.

Aiden bit his bottom lip as he watched, still silent.

Anna took a deep breath, "Thank you," she breathed, immediately throwing her arms around his neck when she was free; burying her face against his neck.

Luce swallowed hard again, "What am I doing here?" she breathed, looking around suddenly like she was unsure of where she was, "I need to leave...I'll kill her.." she whispered, "I'll kill her." she reached up suddenly to grasp her crown and fling it across the room where it snapped in half against the wall, "Get me out of here." she screamed, starting to tear at her sapphires as tears began to stream freely down her face.

Cassidy put on her best smile, "I was visiting with my mother, I'm sorry." she breathed, nerves tightening in her belly.
"I'm sure." Ardaric muttered, something dark in his gaze as it slid over her, "I can smell him on you, Cassy, do you really think it's wise to lie to me."
She blinked slowly before she set her jaw, "I'm glad because I don't want to lie to you, you kidnapped me, you forced to me to marry you and I don't love you, I could never love you." she said through her teeth.
Ardaric stood suddenly and hit her hard across the face, "Is that so, my dear Queen?" he breathed before he called out in a Serpentine tongue and two very large guards appeared, "Take her, give my beautiful whore to the snakes."

Aiden's lips pulled into an impressed pouty face as he nodded, "Efficient," he breathed, "Let's go."

Penny bit her lip, "There's a still a matter of the Emporer." she breathed, giving Luce pause in the total destruction of her things, her eyes almost blackened now, "Kill him, I'll mourn two husbands then." she breathed.

Caden wrapped his arms around her, "You okay?" he breathed.

Aiden nodded slightly, "Any ideas as to how we kill him?"

Anna nodded slightly, inhaling his scent to calm herself before she sighed, "Yes, just get me out of here," she whispered, tightening her hold on him.

Luce sniffled, "Cut out his heart, feed it to the wolves." she shrugged, "Drown him for all I care." she breathed, wiping at her face.
Penny bit her lip, "Maybe." she muttered, starting for the door to pull it open only to be met with the end of Caesar's long sword pressed against her throat, "Envoys, funny."

Caden squeezed her tighter as he blinked them back to his new home in Judas' Palace.

Eliya studied her daughter’s gaze, so much like her own, “I could help you, Tira.” She breathed, “I could forgive you if you would help me save your sisters and I’ll protect you from Judas.” She said softly.
Nefritira shook her pretty head, “He’s good to me.” She breathed, “He’s good to me, I can’t leave him.” She said softly.
Eliya let out her breath as she began to turn away, “Then I can’t save you.” she muttered when her daughter grabbed her, “Come with me, mama, come to the Palace with me and I’ll show you how good it is there.” Tira breathed, curling her fingers around her mother’s wrist. The woman shook her head, “No, Tira, my place is with Caleb, I have to get your sister away from here; don’t you understand?”
Something in the girl’s eyes darkened, “Then maybe it isn’t I who needs to be saved.” She breathed, her fingers moving so quick to plunge her knife through the womb that bore her.
Eliya gasped, pain flaring through her abdomen as she blinked up at Nefritira, she shook her head, choking on her own words as she slid to the ground; Tira removed her dagger, “I’m sorry mama but you brought this on yourself.” She breathed, her eyes burning with tears as she turned to disappear.

Aiden's eyes darkened some as he took out his gun, aiming it at the Emporer's forehead, "Put it down, toga-boy," he breathed, raising his brow.

Anna took a breath as she pulled back a little to look around them, "Where are we?" she breathed, biting her bottom lip.

Caesar raised a brow, "Do you think your bullets will kill me before I ram my sword through the Amazon's throat?" he breathed, pressing the tip harder against her skin until a thin line of blood slid down her collar bone.

"My home, Judas' home." Caden breathed, smiling softly at her, "Are you hungry?"

Aoife moved quickly through the halls, searching for Caleb, the bad feeling clawing at her throat.

Aiden bit his bottom lip, answering only with aiming the mouth at his head and pulling the trigger.

Anna moistened her lips as she glanced down herself; her stomach giving a rumble when she nodded, "I'm starving," she muttered.

Caleb sat in his den again, sipping on his whiskey as he thought quietly to himself.

Caesar's hand jerked at the same moment Penny did, avoiding getting her neatly chopped off; Gaius slumped against the door frame, reaching up with trembling fingers for the bullet in his skull.

Caden moved away from her towards his little kitchenette, "Would you like chocolate while I cook?" he breathed.

Aoife burst into his den, her golden eyes shimmering, "It's my mother." she squeaked, her eyes burning, "Something's wrong."

Aiden released a breath, feeling the tension start to leave his body as he watched Gaius; the gun still aimed at the emporer.

Anna pursed her lips as she slid her hands into the pockets of her jeans, nodding slightly while she watched him, "Sure."

Caleb frowned deeply, "What?" he breathed, shooting to his feet, "Call Adam."

Gaius dug into his skull for a moment before he produced the bullet, he let it drop to the floor and in one fluid movement buried his sword in Penny's belly.

Caden produced a chocolate from the fridge and held it out to her, a sweet smile on his handsome lips.

Aoife shook her head, "We have to go, we have to get her." she breathed, panic making her voice tight.

Aiden's eyes widened, "Fuck," he breathed, pulling the trigger to empty the clip in Gaius' chest.

Anna plucked the chocolate from his fingers; studying the thing for a moment before she popped it into her mouth and chewed.

Caleb sighed, "How do we get there?" he breathed, panic already starting in his chest.

Caesar gasped, falling back and leaving his sword in the Amazon, he gritted his teeth as the bullets lodged into his skin but he managed to stagger towards Aiden now and lurch at his gun; Luce made a noise, grabbing for the dagger she knew he kept and leaping forward to stab her husband in his back at the soft spot between his armor.

Aoife opened her mouth to speak when Malandra the Ophidian appeared carrying her mother's small form, "A kindness from my King that we did not let her bleed to death." the woman breathed.

Aiden took a step back, a frown curving his lips as he watched them still.

Caleb took a deep breath, "Fuck," he breathed, moving forward to take his woman from her.

Caesar growled throwing his wife off of him, he slid the knife out of his back and came at Aiden the moment Penny slid the sword from her belly and with a cry and an upward swing decapitated the Emporer.

Eliya made little choking noises as blood dribbled from her lips and flowed from her belly, making her sticky and red, her arms hung limply against her body and she couldn't seem to focus her gaze.

Aiden couldn't help the slight smile that curved his lips as he moved towards Penny, "You need a hand, Amazon?"

Caleb shook his head, "Damnit, Elle," he breathed, leaving the room with his woman and starting for the bathroom.

Penny dropped the sword to the floor where it clattered, "Please." she breathed, holding a hand to her bleeding abdomen.

Eliya made a pained noise as she seemed to come into focus now, "Caleb?" she breathed out.

Caden smiled, "Do you like it?" he breathed.

Aiden bit his bottom lip as he scooped her into his arms, "Lucille, you coming with us?" he breathed, glancing over at her.

Caleb dropped his gaze to her face, "Yeah, baby?"

Anna gave a slight nod as she swallowed, "It's nice," she mumbled, running her thumb over her bottom lip as she watched his face curiously.

Luce nodded, getting to her feet slowly, blood shining off her hands and jewels, "I just want to go home." she breathed, looking over Penny as she put an arm around Aiden's shoulder and tilted her head against him.

"It was Tira..." Eliya breathed out, becoming rather pale, "Please don't..kill her..." she whispered, her lids fluttering.

Caden leaned forward and kissed her gently, "As nice as this?" he breathed.

Aiden nodded slightly, "I'll take you to your father," he mumbled, "What's the easiest way to get out of here?"

Caleb's jaw tightened, but he said nothing as he hurried into the bathroom with her and put her in the tub.

Anna made a sweet noise; shutting her pretty, light eyes before she slid her arms around his neck to kiss him deeply, "I missed you," she breathed, biting his upper lip.

Luce bit her lip, thinking for a moment, "There's a back way out of the palace that leads to the city, we can blink from there." she breathed.

Eliya shivered as Aoife came in behind them with the first aide kit, "Here." she mumbled, obviously worried.

Caden rubbed his nose against her, "More than anything?"

Aiden nodded slightly, but he said nothing as he gestured for her to lead the way.

Caleb made a noise, "Help me, I suck at this," he breathed, pushing himself into a standing position; suddenly remembering how much he hated patching up his woman.

Anna nodded slightly, "I love you, Caden," she breathed, opening her eyes again to look at him.

Luce started out of the den and began a seperate channel of hallways, "Will she be okay?" she mumbled, glancing back at them.

Aoife got down on her knees quickly, her nimble fingers moving as well as a surgeons as she began to fix up her mother.

"I love you more." Caden breathed, kissing her nose.

Aiden nodded slightly as he followed her, "She'll be fine," he breathed, absolutely sure of this.

Caleb ran his fingers over his hair; a worried look over his handsome face as he watched.

Anna slid her fingers into his hair as she brushed her lips over his; something absolutely wanting in her light eyes as she pressed herself against him.

Penny smiled faintly at this as she pressed her face against the side of his neck, "It's just a flesh wound, nothing that can't heal." she mumbled as Luce led them down more interlinking hallways until she reached the back patio.

Aoife finished sewing the wound shut, her fingers were bloody, and her stomach felt a little queasy but she looked up at Caleb, "She should be fine now." she breathed, turning to watch her mother's face, "She needs sugar, orange juice, something to help with all the blood she lost." she mumbled.

Caden scooped her up into her arms and padded towards his bedroom...

Cassidy let out a little scream as the men grabbed her arms and began to drag her from the room, she lashed out at them, screaming for Adam to save her.

Aiden smiled to himself, "Thats the spirit," he breathed, giving Penny a gentle squeeze as he followed Lucille to the patio.

Caleb nodded slightly, "Okay," he mumbled, looking awfully confused for a moment before he left the bathroom; soon returning with a tall glass of orange juice.

... Anna bit her bottom lip as she tightened her hold on Caden's headboard; a moan escaping her lips as she shuddered with pleasure, arching her back as she whimpered his name.

Adam's head snapped up and he cocked his gun; a frown curving his lips as he hurried towards the sound of his woman and as soon as he reached her, he raised his gun take out the men holding her.

Luce bit her lip as she pushed open the doors, flying out into the cobbled streets of Venice and away from Caesar's magic.

Aoife took it from him and settled it on the edge of the tub, she reached forward to touch her mother's face, whispering something to her that made her lids flutter as she began to sit up, "Wha..?" she mumbled, looking almost sleepy as she was made to sip orange juice.

Ardaric moved, grabbing Adam by the back of his neck to fling him against the other wall, letting his barely hurt guards take away his wife, "You come into my house and disrespect me, you will die for that, tonight." he hissed.

Caleb sighed as he crossed his arms over his chest, "How are you feeling, baby?" he breathed, a soft, still worried kind of smile tugging on his lips.

Adam gritted his teeth as he looked up at the Warlord, a frown curving his lips, "Fuck you, ancient motherfucker," he said through his teeth as he pushed himself to his feet again.

"Like I was stabbed." Eliya breathed, giving him a faint, weak smile, "And I'm a little sleepy and sticky." she said, making a face as she sipped orange juice.

Ardaric shook his head, "Leave. I will not see you until tonight and if you try something foolish, I will lock you away in a dungeon facing sweet Cassy's cell, that way you'll hear her scream."

Caleb lowered himself next to the tub, watching her with a soft look in his pretty eyes, "You can take a bath when you're done," he breathed, gesturing to her glass.

Adam swallowed hard as he staggered to his feet, his gaze on the Warlord's face, "What are you going to do to her?"

Eliya made a face but she didn't object as she sipped her orange juice, she raised her gaze to Aoife and nearly choked, she caught her breath, "You're..." she looked at Caleb, "She's...what did I miss?"

"Do you know of Cleopatra?" Ardaric breathed, grinning to himself, "She entombed herself in a vault, full of venomous Asps, a suicide befitting for a Queen, even mine."

... Luce stepped through the doors of Alkedama Palace, she studied everything for a moment before she turned to Aiden and Penny, "Thank you for bringing me home." she breathed, leaning across Penny to plant a small kiss on Aiden's lips and another on Penny's forehead before she turned and disappeared upstairs.
Penny smirked, finding it hard to keep her lids up, "She kissed you." she mumbled.

Caden dug his fingers into her hips, pressing deep inside her as pleasure errupted in his abdomen.

Caleb's smile widened some, "The Council is here," he breathed, "Callum too."

Adam's jaw tightened, "I promise you that I'll have your bleeding heart beneath my foot before that happens," he breathed, his dark eyes focusing on Ardaric's face before he turned to leave.

Aiden gave a slight shrug, "Women kiss me all the time," he breathed, a crooked grin curving his lips as he looked down at her, starting for one of the bathrooms.

Anna gasped; her lids fluttering as she tightened around him, muttering his name in the most loving way as she pushed herself up to lean against his chest, her knees quivering beneath her, "Mmhm, I love you," she breathed, her light eyes shimmering up at him.

Eliya swallowed hard as she turned her gaze to Aoife, "Hi sweetheart." she breathed, feeling she knew her deep down in her soul.

Malandra caught him as he exited, "Come." she breathed, motioning for Adam to follow her, "Come, if you want to live through tonight."

Penny laughed softly at this, "You are rather kissable." she breathed, peeking up at him from beneath her hooded lids.

Caden wrapped his arms around her, kissing her shoulders and neck, "I love you too."

Caleb smiled warmly at them, finally relaxing some in his body as he straightened and turned to leave the room to give them some privacy.

Adam frowned deeply at this, but he didn't object; simply nodding as he looked her over.

Aiden slipped into the bathroom with her and very carefully placed her in the tub, "You sure you're gonna heal up?"

Anna smiled softly at this; a shiver wrapping around her spine as she sighed, relaxing against him, "We should stay in bed forever," she breathed, shutting her pretty eyes a moment.

Malandra took his wrist carefully and led him down a dark hallway to the Serpent's Armory, "Do you know how to use a sword?" she breathed, moving away from him and towards a wall of weaponry.

Penny nodded slowly as reached up behind her to turn on the faucets, warm water sloshed down on her, wetting her curls as it slid down her face and down her back, she lifted her bloodied shirt and let the water slide over her breasts to the exposed gaping wound in her abdomen, letting it wash the blood and seemingly the wound itself.

Lucille showered, scrubbing herself until she was pink and fresh and clean, she rung out her curls and stepped out of the shower, dressing in dark jeans and a tank top before she left her new room and set out to find her father.

"And we will." Caden breathed, nibbling at her neck, "You're mine, did you know?" he breathed.

Adam nodded slightly, "Of course," he mumbled, following her.

Aiden pursed his lips, not even saying anything as he leaned against the sink; watching her to make sure she'd heal up nicely.

Caleb ran his fingers over his hair as he sat in the kitchen; a tired look on his handsome face as he took a sip of his coffee, figuring he should probably eat something for once as he turned his gaze on the fridge, frowning as he realized he didn't really feel like doing anything.

Anna nodded slightly, "And only yours," she breathed, pressing her backside against him.

Malandra removed a weapon from the wall and then the panel it had hung from, she slid a sheathed long sword from the hidden chamber and unsheathed it for him, showing him the way the steel blade glinted in the light, "Good, he'll choose swords when you go to fight." she breathed, "Be careful with this, it's laced in our most venomous poisons, cut him once and he'll fall." she said softly, sheathing it again before holding it out to Adam.

Penny let out her breath, letting the water wash over her until the wound was gone, she shivered, reaching up to turn off the faucets, she tilted her head back, smiling softly at Aiden, "I told you it would heal." she breathed.

Luce bit her lip as she made her way downstairs, "Daddy?" she called, glanced around still as she started down the hall that led to the giant kitchen.

"Promise?" Caden breathed, burying his face against her hair.

Adam took the weapon; a crooked grin curving his lips as he looked it over, "And you're sure that he'll choose swords?" he breathed.

Caleb's head snapped up; a warm smile curving his lips, "In here, baby," he called as he slid off his chair.

"I promise," Anna breathed, reaching up to curl her fingers in his hair.

Malandra nodded, "I know my King, he'll choose swords." she breathed.

Luce stepped into the kitchen, she studied her father, a watery smile gracing her lips as her eyes filled with tears and she moved to hug him around his waist.

Adam nodded slightly, "Good," he breathed, biting his bottom lip, "But why would you help me? What do you want in return?"

Caleb slid his arms around his not so little girl; his smile immovable as he squeezed her, "I missed you, baby girl," he breathed, kissing her hair.

Malandra pursed her lips, "My King is not his own, he is Judas' man, and he is cruel to his Queen and to us." she breathed, "When you kill him, you will be King, we will all fall to you and I will be your Ophidian, your right Hand. I just want for my people to be safe. And I want Judas the Traitor dead."

Luce squeezed him back, "I missed you too, daddy." she breathed, tears sliding down her cheeks, "Daddy, Isaac's dead, she killed him, did you know?" she whispered, tilting her head back to look up at him.

Adam took a breath as he nodded, "Then I guess we're on the same side right now," he muttered, dropping his gaze back to the sword.

Caleb squeezed her tighter to him as he sighed, "Yes," he breathed, "I can't say I'm surprised she left him to rot in London."

Malandra gave a light nod, "I guess we are." she breathed, "Good luck, Adam of Hawthorne." she said and turned to leave.

Luce sniffled, her eyes filling with new tears, "I hate her, daddy, I hate her so much it hurts." she whispered, she shook her head, "He abandoned us for, after fifteen years, he abandoned us but I still miss him, I still love him, why is it like this?" she muttered, tears spilling over down her cheeks now.

Penny managed to get to her feet, her wet clothes clinging to her body before she began to strip, having no issues with being naked in front of him, she shivered again, "Hand me a towel?" she mumbled, glancing up at Aiden as she hugged herself.

Caelan stood between two rooms, one held his sister and the other the man she would soon be marrying, he looked dashing in a simple black and white suit, he leaned towards Celeste's door, "Are you almost done?" he called in a whisper, knowing if he was caught his father would kill him for helping with this secret wedding.
"Almost." Celeste called back as she stood in front of her full length mirror, making sure the simple white dress she wore fit to every curve and fell perfectly, she smiled to herself as she reached up to fix cream colored flowers into her half-up, half-down dark curls.

Caden hugged her tighter against him as he tilted on his side so they could lay down and he could still be inside her, he didn't say anything, just savoring their silence.

Caleb sighed, "Love is always painful, baby," he breathed, biting his bottom lip, "But you can't imagine how good you'll feel when you crush her heart between your fingers."

Aiden pursed his lips, but he still didn't say anything as he grabbed a towel from its hanger and held it out to her.

Aleksic fixed his suit; a softness over his handsome face as he thought of her, his little Seeing woman and how much trouble they had gone through to be together.

Anna made a pleased noise; a shivering sensation washing over her as she tightened around him, not wanting to ruin their sweet silence as she shut her eyes.

Luce's eyes darkened, "I want it so bad." she breathed, nodding to herself, "I'll hunt her down and I'll kill her, dad, I don't care if I die doing it, I want her dead." she whispered.

Penny wrapped it around herself before she stepped out of the tub, "You're quiet," she breathed, smiling softly up at him, "What are you thinking about?"

Celeste opened her door slowly as she stepped out into the hall, "How do I look?" she breathed, practically glowing, her golden eyes shimmering.
Caelan smiled softly at her, "You look beautiful, sis." he breathed, leaning over to kiss the top of her head, "Now, we just have to get you and the Wolf out of here without raising the alarms." he muttered, glancing at Aleksic's door.

Caden shut his eyes, keeping her tight against him as he buried his face against her hair.

Caleb pulled back a little to look down at her, "I'll help you," he breathed, "We'll take her down together, okay?"

Aiden cocked his head a bit to the side, "Our world," he breathed, scrunching up his nose a bit, "I'm just wondering how it came to this. Destruction and death everywhere."

Aleksic soon opened his door, a soft smile curving his lips as he looked upon his bride, "You look beautiful, moja ljubav."

Anna sighed softly, feeling so utterly comfortable against him as she relaxed completely; letting herself drift off..

Luce nodded slowly, "Okay, daddy." she breathed, reaching up to wipe at her face, "How will we find her?" she asked softly, "How will we kill her?"

Penny bit her lip, "It seems the same as my old world, like the Earth has evolved back to where it began; I was an Amazon, we were warriors, death and destruction were what we knew best, it doesn't mean we didn't know love but war was what we were made for." she gave a shrug of her slender shoulders, "I died for love in the mists of war, it seemed fitting, if I died again in this world, it would be for the same."

Celeste smiled softly at him, "And you are most handsome," she breathed as she held her hand out to him; Caelan rolled his eyes at their sweetness but he smiled, "We have to go." he said softly, "I don't want my father catching us."

... Caden slept deeply, he always slept, it was his favorite thing to do, he could sleep for days and it would never be enough.

Caleb let go of her now to run his fingers over his hair, "If she's still a vampire, we rip her heart out," he breathed, pursing his lips, "But if she's not.. we're gonna need something stronger than bullets."

"How sweet," Aiden breathed, a smile tugging on the corner of his lips, "It's rare to find a woman so accepting of death."

Aleksic couldn't help it when he scoffed, "I doubt your father is much of a threat to us today," he muttered, holding his hand out to his woman.

Anna shuddered when she woke with a start, mumbling something inaudible to herself as she sat up before she glanced down at Caden, "What the hell?" she mumbled, blinking slowly as a cold feeling settled in her chest and she wrapped the cover around herself and slid out of bed, digging Caden's cellphone out of his jeans before she slid into his bathroom and dialed Kiran's number.

Luce bit her lip, "I may have something." she breathed, "A gift from Lilith, it's a blade that kills down to the soul." she said softly, thinking for a moment where she hid it.

A soft, sad smile spilled across Penny's lips, "You have to accept the inevitable or let it tear your soul apart." she muttered, a moment before leaning forward to kiss him gently, "Could we do something that's very alive instead talking about death?"

Celeste took his hand and turned to her little brother, "Get us out of here." she breathed, smiling softly still.
Caelan bit his lip before he took hold of them both and blinked them to a small, misshapen building, "It isn't much but the man will preform a wedding." he breathed.

Kiran made a small noise as he rolled over on his belly to grab his phone, "Hello?" he breathed, sleepily.

Caleb nodded slightly, "Find it," he breathed, slipping back onto his seat.

"Like what?" Aiden breathed, his brow raising in his teasing manner.

Aleksic nodded slightly, not really caring how lavish or appropriate everything was in that moment as he squeezed Celeste's hand, a soft smile still playing on his lips.

Anna shut her eyes a moment, "Baby, where are you?" she whispered, shutting the door as quietly as she could to keep from waking Caden.

Luce gave a slight nod, not saying anything as she turned and disappeared to do just that.

Penny pretended to think for a moment as she leaned forward to whisper elicit-ly naughty things to him before kissing his chin and then down to his neck.

Caelan moved forward to open the door for them, revealing the room he'd helped decorate in bouquets of white rose and yellow primrose and blue violets and the deepest, red carnations that lined the path to an old wise man, he was thin and looked smaller, still, in his cream color dress shirt and black slacks, his bald head shiny in the dim light and his grey beard long.

Kiran blinked slowly, "Anna?" he breathed, "They said you were dead..." he mumbled, sitting up in bed now.

Aleksic's lips were still formed in a toothless smile as he looked over Caelan's work; an impressed look coming over his dark, handsome face, "You did a great job, Walker," he muttered.

Anna shut her eyes a moment, "What?" she breathed, shaking her head a bit to herself, "No, uhm.. I need to get out of here, where are you?" she breathed, opening the door a little to see if Caden was still sleeping.

Caelan grinned to himself, "I try," he breathed, gesturing for Alek to stand with the old man before he held his arm out to his sister, "Due me the honor of walking you down the aisle?" he breathed.

"In Moscow," Kiran muttered, "Where the hell are you? Eva and Aleksic said you were dead." He breathed, shaking his head as he sat up straighter.

A few hours later...
The Challenge was held in the great foyer of the Serpent's palace, Ardaric grinned almost wickedly to himself as he waited for his opponent to show his face, he stood only in a pair of black pants, his tattoos almost seeming to swirl on his skin.

Aleksic gathered his hands in front of him; a sweet smile curving his lips as he watched them.

"I don't know," Anna mumbled, not closing the door again as she sat on the edge of the tub, "I'm at Caden's, but.. I don't know. I'm really confused.."

Adam took a breath, shutting his eyes a moment as he started into the great foyer of the palace; wondering if he should be praying to the gods by now.

Celeste's smile widened some as she took her brother's arm, he hummed 'Here's come the bride' as he led her down the aisle to her soon-to-be husband and the old man began in Arabic the vows of marriage...

Kiran bit his lip, "I'm coming to get you." he breathed, "Just...lock yourself in the bathroom." he muttered, "I'll be there soon."

Ardaric grinned, "Before we begin, I want to show you something." he breathed and pointed above him to Malandra's head mounted on his wall, her lips twisted in an ugly half-scream, "You have the sword, yes? Use it." he breathed as he was brought a giant, iron and wood battle ax.

Anna bit her bottom lip, "Okay," she breathed, reaching up to grab the handle and shut the door before locking it.

Adam felt his heart clench with nerves in his chest as he studied the head on the wall; almost feeling sick as he unsheathed his sword.

Ardaric widened his stance, bringing his ax up on his shoulder, ready to swing, "Shall we begin?" he breathed.

... The old man sang the last vow, he held their combined hand in his and he lowered his head to say the final blessings before a wide toothless grin curved his lips and he pronounced them man and wife; Celeste grinned widely, her eyes burning with happy tears as she grabbed Alek's front and pulled him down to kiss him hard.

Adam nodded slightly, a crooked grin curving his lips as he bounced a little on his feet, "Come at me, bro," he breathed, happy that he'd worn nothing but his jeans.

Aleksic smiled against her mouth before he slid his arms around her, giving her a careful squeeze as he kissed her hard.

Ardaric raised a brow but he didn't respond except to move, swinging his ax in a downward arc.

Cael cheered, his voice alone echoing through the building, "Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Wolfman." he breathed, his usual crooked half-grin curving his lips.

Adam sidestepped; his heart stopping for a moment in his chest as he swung the sword, aiming to cut the Warlord over the ribs.

Aleksic glanced up from Celeste's pretty face, opening his mouth to say something when there was the sound of slow, sinister clapping from the entryway, "Beautiful ceremony," Caleb called, still clapping his hands as he slowly began up the aisle.

Ardaric side-stepped, the tip of the sword just barely catching him as his ax embedded itself in the floor, he growled, jerking the big thing out, it's weight making him slower as he swung again.

Celeste blinked slowly as she looked up at her father, "Dad...I..." she started, almost frightened of what he might do, "I love him." she breathed out, "Please don't be angry, please." she mumbled, knowing he must be.

Caden blinked slowly, he could feel the shift of the air as he stood and looked around his bedroom, he pursed his lips, sliding out of bed before padding to the bathroom, "Anna?" he called, "You okay?"

Adam ducked, nearly falling on his ass as he thrashed the sword forward to plunge it into Ardaric's gut.

Caleb's lips twisted into a wicked sort of smile, "I'm not angry," he breathed, his gaze only on the mutt as he raised his hand to gesture to him, still moving towards them, "You. You die."

Anna's head snapped up and she bit her bottom lip, "I'm fine," she called, her voice cracking a little, "I'm.. I'm a little nauseous, that's all."

Ardaric's battle ax clattered to the floor as he looked down at himself, he'd never been beaten before and getting beaten now stung worse than anything, his knees began to give as a sinister sort of laugh bubbled up from his lips, "It doesn't matter, it doesn't matter, you can't have her." he choked up.

Celeste made a noise, "No, dad, please." she breathed out, her eyes burning now as she took a step towards him.

Caden frowned, "Do you want something to eat?" he asked, grasping the door handle, "Let me in, okay? Let me in so I can see how you are."

Adam took a deep breath as he pushed himself back to his feet; letting the sword stay in his gut as he sighed, "Good luck in Hell, Snake," he breathed, letting the man die in peace as he turned to find Cassidy.

Caleb ignored her; his eyes darkening to the blackness of the Pit as Aleksic took a step towards him as well. Neither of them said anything before Caleb kicked the larger man in the gut, sending him flying into the altar before Caleb sighed, peeling up his sleeves on his black shirt, "I should have done this a long time ago," he breathed, taking a few steps towards the groaning wolf.

Anna bit her bottom lip harder as she stood; tightening the cover around her while she unlocked the door, knowing it would be terribly suspicious if she didn't.

Cassidy lay on the cold stone floor of her prison, gasping her breath as the Asps circled her, their venomous fangs sinking into every bit of exposed flesh, her body was polluted with it to the point she couldn't even whimper in pain.

Celeste whimpered, starting towards them when Caelan grabbed his sister, "Remember the baby." he breathed, "You don't want to be in the middle of this." he whispered, holding onto her tight as they watched their father.

Caden bit his lips as he looked down at her, "Are you hungry?" he muttered, bending his head to steal a kiss.

Adam continued ahead, calling for his girl as he tried to search her out.

Aleksic looked up at the King of Hell, a grin curving his lips as he shook his head, "You're making a big mistake, Caleb," he breathed.
Caleb gave a slight shrug, "We'll see in the Pit, Dog," he said through his teeth, yanking Aleksic onto his knees before he stepped behind him and pulled out his gun from the back of his slacks, "Any last words?"

Anna gently kissed him, portraying a sweet smile as she looked up at him, "Yeah," she breathed, curling her fingers in the cover now.

Cassidy's breathing became more shallow as the venom burned through her veins, pumping almost as steadily as the blood from her slowing heart.

Celeste cried out but Cael held her tighter, not able to look away, not thinking of taking her away either.

Caden smiled, "Would you like a bite of chocolate?" he asked softly when Kiran Hawthorne appeared.

Adam continued forward until he found her, his eyes widening some, "Cassidy," he yelled, pulling back a little before he began kicking at the door.

Aleksic sighed as he looked up at his little wife; a soft smile curving his lips, "Don't be sad, moja ljubav," he breathed, "I'll see you again," he said, his dark eyes only on her even as Caleb put the mouth of his gun at the tip of the Wolf's spinal coord and pulled the trigger.

Anna's lips twisted, "No," she breathed, taking a step back from him when she felt the shift in the air.

Cassy's lids fluttered as the snakes circled her, slimy and cold against her skin.

Celeste screamed and finally Cael turned her away from the scene, he could feel the sobs shaking his sister's body and he shut his eyes, "Shh, it'll be okay." he breathed, trying to comfort her.

Kiran growled, moving to grab Cade by the back of his neck and throw him backwards, "You okay?" he breathed, glancing at his woman.

Adam kept kicking at the door until it gave in; a shudder wrapping around his spine as he hopped over as many snakes as he could before bending down to pick up Cassidy.

Caleb sighed; watching as Aleksic fell to the floor, blood flowing from his throat onto the floor, "There," he breathed, raising his black gaze to his children as he stepped over the body of the wolf.

Anna nodded quickly, swallowing hard as she watched Caden, "I'm fine," she breathed.

Cassy's body was stiff, her airways constricted painfully, every touch hurt, her skin bruised and puckered where the snakes had torn into her.

Cael's eyes were dark when he looked up at their father but he said nothing to him as he turned his attention back to Celeste, "I'm so sorry." he said softly, "It's over now, it's over." he breathed as she cried harder.

Caden grunted before he stumbled back to his feet, "Uncalled for." he muttered, "You shouldn't be here, Kiran."
Kiran raised a brow at this, "You took my woman, shut up before I kill you." retorted, the look in his eye meaning business.

Adam hugged her tight to him as he turned with her, hurrying through the halls to get them the hell out of there.

Caleb ran his fingers over his hair as he moved towards them, stopping only to grab his son by the collar and punch him hard in the mouth.

Anna curled her fingers in the cover around her as she took a step forward, "Why did you do it?" she breathed, something unbelievably hurt in her gaze as she looked over what she had considered her best friend.

Cassidy felt frozen inside her own body but her insides burned and a small noise managed to escape her lips before her lids shut fully and the venom ravaged her.

Cael fell back a little, reaching up to touch his face as he grimaced, his gaze on his father's face again, realizing it wasn't the worse thing his father could have done to him in that moment. Celeste whimpered as she raised her gaze to Caleb's, she shook her head, "How could you do this?" she breathed, her heart clenching so tight in her chest even as it clawed it's way into her throat.

Caden frowned deeply, "Because I love you, Isabelle, why else?" he said softly.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Sun Sep 30, 2012 8:27 am

Adam kept going for a long time; maneuvering through the halls as best as he could before he reached the gates and blinked them home.

Caleb dropped his dark gaze to Celeste's face as he frowned, "You'll thank me later," he breathed before he turned to leave.

Anna's plump lips formed into a frown as she studied Caden's face; things suddenly making sense as she stepped past Kiran, slowly moving towards his uncle, "I'm not Isabelle, Caden, it's Anna," she breathed.

Eliya was coming down the stairs in that moment, her eyes widened on Adam and Cassidy and she began to them quickly, "What happened?" she breathed, panic and worry evident on her pretty face.

Caelan sighed, wincing as it hurt his pretty mouth, he moved forward, taking Celeste's wrist gently before he blinked them home again, guilt dredging like cancer in his guts.

Caden frowned deeply, "No, you're my wife." he breathed out, confused, "You look like her." he mumbled.

Adam shook his head, "Snakes," he breathed, moving towards Eliya, "He let the snakes bite her."

Caleb blinked himself home; no where other than his den where he sat himself down to have another drink.

Anna swallowed hard, "Isabelle.. my mother, is dead," she breathed, moving close enough to feel his breath now as she reached up to carefully touch his face, "I'm so sorry, Cade.."

Caden shook his head, his dark green eyes becoming wet as his hand shot up suddenly to wrap around her throat, "You're lying, why are you lying to me?" he breathed, his throat tight as the memories began to burst like painful blisters on his brain and he lost control.

A Few Days later; Alkedama Palace...
Cassidy Walker blinked slowly, she had spent days going in and out of delirium, fighting the snake venom in her veins; for a moment she was unsure of where she was until she saw Adam's sleeping form in the chair beside her bed, she glanced around the bedroom she was in, her throat felt dry and scratchy and when she opened her mouth, she managed to say her man's name in a barely audible whisper.

Eliya took a shuddering breath, her belly tying in knots as she looked at the group before her, Caleb and Luce would leave to hunt Evangeline, Callum and Silas were going after Tessa and little Nickolas, and Sean and Logan were headed after Carolin, "All of you better come home." she breathed, her throat tightening as she wanted nothing more than to keep all of them safe.

Anna gasped; her light eyes becoming wide as she wrapped her fingers around his wrist, her heart clenching in her chest as she simply watched his face, "Let go," she choked out, "Please, Cade.."

Kiran moved, grabbing Caden and throwing him off his woman again, the bigger man hit the wall hard, his skull snapping back against the marble and knocking him out on impact, he turned back to Anna, "Are you okay?" he breathed, concern evident in his gaze.

Adam practically shook himself awake at the barely audible noise; his chocolatey eyes blinking open, "Cass?" he mumbled, wanting to make sure it wasn't just another dream as he slowly stood.

Caleb nodded slightly, "Of course, baby," he breathed, unable to keep the smile from his lips when the Hawthorne boys all made agreeing noises.

Anna swallowed hard as she raised her hand to rub her throat, "He needs help, Kiran," she whispered, not answering as she looked up at him, her eyes starting to shimmer, "We need to help him."

Cassy nodded slightly, "It's me." she breathed, her voice hoarse from disuse, "I thought I was dead for a minute." she mumbled, trying to sit up a little.

Callum grinned, "We have each others backs, mama, we'll be home before you even know it." he breathed, his gaze soft.
Eliya sniffed a little, "I'll be waiting." she mumbled, moving to plant kisses on all of their foreheads before she reached Caleb, saving the sweetest kiss for last as she stood on her tip toes and pressed her lips to his.

Kiran ran his fingers through his hair, "How do we do that?" he breathed.

Adam couldn't help the warm smile that curved his lips as he pulled his chair closer to the bed and grabbed a bottle of water from the night stand, "Here," he breathed, holding it out to her as he seated himself again.

Caleb kissed her deeply for a long, thorough moment before he smiled against her mouth, "I'll see you soon."

Anna bit her bottom lip, "We take him home with us," she breathed, studying his eyes, "I'll take responsibility for him and everything, he wont hurt me."

Cassy took it, taking a long drink, the water was good and cool as it slid down her throat, she took a breath as her lips formed a smile, "The King is dead?" she breathed, meaning Ardaric.

Eliya rubbed her nose against his, "I love you." she breathed before pulling back to look at all of them, "Go, kill, bring our girls home." she breathed, giving them all a watery smile.

Kiran's lips twisted, "You make him sound like a dog or an invalid." he mumbled, looking down at his uncle.

Adam nodded slightly, "It was a bit easier than expected," he breathed, a crooked grin curving his lips.

Caleb smiled softly at her, but he said nothing as he glanced down at Callum, as if asking if he was ready.

Anna raised a brow at him, "He thinks I'm his dead wife and he put me in a chokehold, I think I'm allowed to," she muttered, frowning at him as she moved towards the bed to find her clothes.

Cassy sighed, "May he never come back." she breathed, biting her lip, "They said I couldn't have children." she mumbled, something that seemed to be gnawing at her insides.

Callum gave a slight nod before he stepped back a little with Silas and blinked them to Mircea's land.
Logan glanced down at Sean, not asking if he was ready before he blinked them to Hannibal's lair.
Luce looked up at her father, "I'm ready." She breathed, nodding to herself.

Kiran frowned to himself, "Fine but if he tries to kill us, I'm shooting him."

Adam's pretty lips turned down in a slight frown as he watched her face, "But I thought you didnt want to have kids," he mumbled, biting his bottom lip.

(I'll ply to this at home, I'm omw)

Anna nodded slightly as she dropped her cover, letting it fall around her feet before she found her underwear and slipped into it before shimmying into her jeans. She glanced down herself, stiffening for a moment as her gaze locked onto her flat stomach, "What about the baby?" she whispered.

"I don't." Cassy breathed, "Well, I didn't but it would have been nice to have the option, to know that I could." she mumbled, her throat tightening, "I thought I was pregnant when I was there, it was so...it was..." she shook her head, "I can bring people back from the dead but I can't give life." she mumbled, "It's a big fucked up joke."

Kiran frowned, dropping his gaze to her belly, he shook his head, "I...I don't know." he mumbled.

Adam chewed his lip for a moment as he leaned forward, placing his elbows on his knees, "I guess," he mumbled.

Anna quickly pulled her wife beater on before moving towards him, a genuinely frightened look coming over her pretty face as she took his hand and placed it on her belly, "Do you feel him?" she breathed, searching her man's face.

Cassy sighed and dropped back onto her pillow, she studied the ceiling for a long moment, "It doesn't matter, we didn't want kids anyways." she mumbled, more to herself then him as if resigning the issue.

Kiran swallowed hard as he forced himself to meet her gaze, "No." he breathed.

Adam's frown deepened as he continued to watch her face, "I'm sorry," he mumbled.

Anna's heart seem to stop for a moment before she shook her head, her shoulders slumping as she shut her eyes, "He took him," she whispered, "Joseph took our baby, Kiran," she breathed, raising her hand to cover her mouth as tears stung her eyes.

Cassy shifted her gaze to him, "Don't be." she breathed, holding her hand out for his, "I'm still a little cold, will you come warm me up?" she said softly.

Kiran swallowed hard, "Then we'll get him back, I'll find Joseph and I'll kill him." he breathed, nodding to himself.

Adam made a sweet noise, "Fine, but you need to drink more water," he muttered, gesturing to her water bottle as he stood.

Anna nodded slightly, "Get us out of here, please," she breathed, looking up at her man as she wiped the tears from her eyes.

Silas blinked slowly when they appeared; a frown curving his handsome lips as he reached back to wrap his fingers around his gun.

Sean scrunched up his nose a little as he dug out his 9. millimeter from the back of his jeans; ready for anything, according to himself.

Caleb nodded slightly before he shut his eyes and blinked them to the very cold and dark Red Square in Moscow.

Cassy nodded, sitting up a little to drink another third of it before she shimmied over to make room for him in bed.

Callum raised his gaze to the three tall towers cut into the rocky mountain side that served as Mircea's palace, "What games will lie ahead?" he muttered, shaking his head as he started towards the gate that led inside.

Logan pursed his lips, studying the arena that Hannibal had chosen as his own, he could hear cries of agony coming from inside and he frowned, "I swear if Care's hurting, I'll..." he shook his head, ever the big brother as he started forward.

Luce slid her dark gaze across everything but she didn't say anything, trusting her father.

Silas sighed, but he said nothing as he started after Callum; knowing that it would probably be a challenge once they were inside.

"She's fine, I'm sure," Sean muttered, starting after his half-brother.

Caleb pursed his lips as his light eyes slowly darkening into blackness, and he cocked his head a bit to the side; silent until the air on the square seemed to shift and Evangeline Hart appeared not too many yards in front of them, dressed in a thick fur coat over her see-through silky top and dark jeans, "My King," she breathed, inclining her head as her icy gaze shifted to Lucille, "Princess."

Callum frowned even more when he saw no gates at the door, "Curious." he muttered, moving towards the large oak doors when the pungnant smell of blood assualted his senses.

Logan pursed his lips as he moved into one of the spectator entrances, wanting a look at the arena; Carolin walker stood in the center, she was moving gracefully, almost dancing, twin daggers extended like extra limbs on her hands as she moved, slicing through the army of soldiers closing in on her while her husband sat in the stands, cheering his young wife in her gore.

Luce pursed her lips tight but she kept herself from saying the slew of nasty words she could have said or called Eva, instead she waited to take her father's lead.

Kiran bit his lip hard, "Where do we go?" he asked softly, knowing they had no real home now.

Eliya moved up the steps to knock on Adam and Cassy's door, "Breakfast is done." she called in, knowing Cassy would be up my now starving, she bit her lip as she left them to find Aiden and invite him down for breakfast as well.

Silas wrinkled his nose a little at the smell, but he remained quiet as he moved forward; making as little noise as possibly.

Sean bit his bottom lip hard, but he said nothing as he watched the pretty girl move; actually a little impressed.

Anna sighed, "I have a place in Argentina, if it still exists," she mumbled, fixing her clothes before she began for the door on her bare feet.

"Be my guest," Caleb breathed; a crookedness about the grin that curved his lips now as he took a step towards the vampire who simply grinned at him, "What are you going to do, love?" she breathed, her light eyes shimmering as she stepped close enough to touch him and she got on the toes of her boots, "Kill me?" she whispered, before she pressed her lips against his.

Callum sucked in his breath before he pushed open the door, bodies were strewn everywhere, blood decorated the ornate walls of the palace.

Logan watched a moment, opening his mouth to speak when two guards appeared behind them, "You shouldn't be here, it's a private show."

Luce's eyes darkened as she moved forward to curl her fingers in Eva's hair and yank her backwards hard, "Don't touch my dad." she said through her teeth.
Lynn Vladislav appeared on the streets of the Red Square, she stood behind Caleb and his daughter, her cool violet-silver gaze flickered over Evangeline and her lips twisted with just a hint of disgust, "Mind if I join the party?" she breathed, looking gorgeous as always even in her standard badassary of dark jeans, grey wife beater, leather jacket, and steel toed boots, her curls had been straightened and fell around her beautiful face.

Silas frowned deeply at this, "Fuck," he breathed, looking over the bloody mess before them; hoping that this was Tessa's work and that she was perfectly fine.

Sean made a slow turn on his heel; a crooked smile curving his lips as he looked over the guards, "Gee, I'm sorry," he breathed, rolling back on the balls of his heels, "I guess there's no way to get the Lord's autograph then, huh?"

Evangeline sucked a breath in between her teeth before she moved; wrapping her fingers around Lucille's wrist and twisting to hear a snap as she looked up at Caleb, addressing the girl, "Why? Are you afraid that he'll want it more than your mommy?" she breathed, something dark in her eyes before Caleb had his fingers around her throat and threw her onto the snowy asphalt, "Don't make me rip out your tongue, sweetheart," he hissed.
Evangeline gritted her teeth as she remained on the ground, for a moment seeming to realize something as she shifted her gaze from Caleb to Lynn, "It's her, isn't it?" she breathed, "The one you talked about in your darkest nights in the Pit? Is it her you want?" she breathed, not even needing an answer from the King as his eyes started to blacken and she laughed, "You prefer your father's wife over the Queen."

Lynn was on her suddenly, one hand grabbed her chin as the other reached into her mouth, closing around her tongue before she ripped it out violently, spattering blood in the snow as she flung it away from her, "You should learn to keep your mouth shut." she breathed.
Luce frowned deeply, cradling her wrist close to her as she turned her gaze on her father, "What is she talking about, dad?" the girl breathed

Callum swallowed hard, there were three doors leading off the main floor, "Pick a door." he muttered.

One of the guard's cocked his head, obviously confused before the other shook his head, "You are in luck, he will see you." he said, gesturing to where Hannibal sat.

Caleb's jaw tightened; the sound of Evangeline's choked scream sending a shiver down his spine as he shook his head, "Nothing," he breathed, "She's just trying to be dramatic."

Silas pursed his lips, "That one," he mumbled, gesturing to the second door.

Sean inclined his head, "Thank you," he muttered, putting on his most polite behavior as he kept his head down, starting for Hannibal's seat.

Lynn straightened slowly, her fingers covered in Eva's darkened blood, her violet-silver gaze was dark and shimmering, "I brought a few gifts." she breathed, "I threw a veil over this city and the next, you may run but you won't be able to disappear, you won't get away." she whispered as five men slid from the shadows behind them, "These are my wolves, loyal to the end, on Luce's command, they will shift, you will run, and they will hunt." she said, her tone barely above a whisper and eerily calm, "Luce, focus, sweetheart." she muttered to the girl without turning to face her, "You'll have to follow, kill her, make it last."

Callum pursed his lips as he moved forward, reaching back to unsheathe the blade he carried on him as he reached for the handle and twisted it slowly, he let it fall open into darkness; there was a sound and what seemed like Tessa's voice, "Help me."

Hannibal turned his dark gaze to Sean, a slight, crooked smile curved his lips, "Welcome." he called, gesturing down to his wife, "Do you like the show?"

Evangeline's eyes widened as she covered her mouth; feeling herself heal right back to perfection before she moved to her feet; briefly giving Caleb an almost disappointed, knowing look before she took off running at an impeccable, inhuman speed.

Seanan nodded slightly, "It's.. captivating," he muttered, turning his gaze on the sweet girl as a softness came over his handsome face.

A few hours earlier…
Lynnie felt tears slip down her face as she knocked back a long, sweet hit of whiskey, followed by the bitter taste of losing everything all over again. Her third husband had left, another man who couldn’t love her, a sting that hurt so much worse than the others because she had loved him so much more; a sting that bled into the twisting agony of losing her sons and her brothers in one fell swoop. She felt horribly alone in those moments.
A shift in the night air broke her reverence, she tilted her chin but she didn’t look back at the man she knew stood behind her, “He retired me from my service so why are you here?”
“He can call you back and He has, Lynn.” The man breathed, his tone was like melting ice, “There is a plan so much bigger than this, than Judas and the speck of scientists you’re all so worried about; He needs you.”
Lynn half-turned to face the Angel, he was a beautiful creature, sinewy but strong, his clean-shaven face, Cupid’s bow lips, and small nose made him look almost boyish, innocent even, dark golden curls hung down to his broad shoulder, and he wore a dark suit of blue silk, “For what, Urim?” she inquired softly, her violet-silver eyes still glittering with tears.
“To protect the children,” Urim said, “The Queen of Hell has borne many and they must be saved or fall into the wrong hands and die; there is not much else I can say to you.” He breathed, his tawny eyes meeting her gaze, “Go to the King of Hell and protect the children and you shall be rewarded in kind. And that is a command of the highest order.” The Angel muttered before he was gone with a shift of air.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Sun Sep 30, 2012 8:50 am

Luce's eyes darkened as she seemed to forget her father, "Hunt." she breathed, her wrist healing with a crack, almost like a whip through the night air that sent the men to Change in flashes of fur as they started after the vampire, moving at an almost unnatural speed for their kind, Luce following.
Lynn turned to face Caleb, her face seeming to soften, "Can we talk?" she breathed.

Hannibal's smile softened as he studied Carolin, "She moves so gracefully." he said softly, watching the girl move from one moving target to the next until there were none left and she was there standing, covered in dark red blood and trying to catch her breath.

Caleb glanced over at her again, giving a slight nod, "Yeah," he breathed, his dark eyes watching her face.

Seanan pursed his lips; a worried line creasing his forehead as he studied Carolin, "Do you know who I am?" he muttered, addressing Hannibal.

Lynn bit her lip as she moved to sit on the wall that surrounded the Kremlin, she gestured for him to sit with her, "How are you?" she asked softly, her gaze flickering to his face.

Hannibal nodded slowly, "You came for her." he muttered, his gaze only on his Queen, "She doesn't love me, you know? It was all a trick, a lie, a gift from Nefritira and Judas." the young General mused, "It's cruel."

Caleb pursed his lips; a frown forming between his brows as he moved to sit with her, "I'm fine," he mumbled, sliding his hands into the pockets of his jeans.

Seanan nodded at this, "It is," he breathed, "So will you let her go?"

Lynnie nodded slowly, "I don't think I am." she said softly, clasping her bloodied hands in her lap, "After your father left me, I was headed into hiding, I had sent our kids ahead of me but I kept Drake and the others close so we could tie up loose ends before we went." she began, her eyes darkening as she looked down at her fingers, "We were attacked by a company called the Blood and Steel Agency, a firm my father created, a loose end to be tied; they killed my sons, my brothers, they left me so wounded." her eyes glittered, "I've been in a coma for the last five months and I wake to this world and it's so..." she shook her head, pursing her lips tight.

Hannibal bit his lip, "Do you love her?" he asked softly, instead of answering yet.

Caleb sighed as he turned his gaze to the skies instead, "I know," he breathed, feeling something tighten around his heart, "It's Hell."

Seanan bit his bottom lip as he turned his gaze on Hannibal now, "No," he muttered, deciding to be honest, "But I think I could, if I get to know her better."

Lynn swallowed hard as she glanced up at him, "What will we do?" she asked softly.

Hannibal nodded slowly, "Take her then." he said softly, "She's worth so much more than this." he breathed as he looked down at his sweet, young Queen.

Caleb exhaled hard this time as he raised his hand to rub his head, "Honestly?" he mumbled, dropping his gaze to her face again, "I have no idea."

Sean released his breath now; seeming to lose some of his tenseness as he nodded, "Thank you," he breathed, turning towards Carolin now.

Lynn bit her lip, "Then we're all on the same page." she muttered, glancing away for a moment before she looked up at him again, "What Eva said? It was a lie, wasn't it?"

Carolin studied them from her place down in the arena, she cocked her head a bit, the chocolate taking it's time to run out of her system as she started towards them, "Sean?" she called.

Caleb ran his tongue over his teeth, silent for a very brief moment before he nodded, "Of course."

Sean felt a crooked grin curve his lips now, "Hey, baby," he called to her, something like excitement starting in his belly.

Lynn studied him, "Are you lying to me?" she asked softly, biting her bottom lip hard.

Carolin felt a soft smile curve her lips and it softened her blood stained face, "Come to rescue me?" she mumbled, stepping up into the stands.

Caleb's right brow raised a bit as he studied her face closely, "No," he muttered, sounding almost irritated now as he held her gaze, "Why? What's it to you?"

Seanan nodded slightly, "If not us, then who?" he breathed, moving to pull her into a tight hug.

Lynn's lips curved down into a frown, "I don't want you to hurt your wife." she said sincerely, "I don't want you to want me because I can't love you how Eliya loves you and I want to know that you know that." she mumbled, "And I want to know that Eva was lying because you would never choose me for real over Eliya."

Carolin slid her arms around him and hugged him tight, "I'm sticky." she mumbled, shutting her eyes as she buried face against his shoulder.

Caleb sighed again, "You make it sound like I'm asking you to marry me," he muttered, his light eyes still on her pretty face as his gaze began to soften and he moved in front of her, placing a hand on either side of her before he bent his head to kiss her mouth.

"You're beautiful," Sean muttered, shutting his eyes as he squeezed her, "You ready to go home?"

Lynn shut her eyes, leaning into the kiss as she curled her fingers in his shirt, that old, familiar lust broiling through her abdomen.

"Yes." Care breathed, not letting go of him, "But there's something I want to take back with us.." she mumbled, biting her lip.

Kiran frowned deeply, "Are you upset with me?" he mumbled, following after her.

Caleb made a pleased noise against her mouth as he kissed her harder, deeper and slid his arms around her to pull her closer to him.

Sean pulled back a little to look down at her; a frown curving his lips, "What is it?"

Anna glanced over her shoulder at him, "Of course not," she breathed, her eyes shimmering as she continued down the hall, "Can you find the exit?"

Lynn bit his bottom lip, her violet-silver eyes smoldered when she opened them, she reached up to touch his face, sliding her thumb over his pretty lips, "If I fucked you right now, I wouldn't even be thinking about you." she breathed, something wicked in her gaze.

Carolin bit her lip and turned slightly, calling out in sweet Italian the only words she knew before two small lion cubs came bounding towards them, "I want to keep them." she mumbled.

Kiran bit his lip as he grabbed her wrist and pulled her towards him, "Our kids are with Caleb, why not go back?" he muttered.

Caleb's pretty lips turned up in a wicked grin as his eyes began to darken, "Oh, sweetheart," he breathed, "I guarantee, you'll be thinking about nothing but me," he murmured, biting her thumb as he ran his hands up her thighs to undo her jeans.

Seanan blinked slowly as he looked over the cubs, "Lions?" he mumbled, glancing down at Carolin again, "What do you think your dad will say?"

Anna glanced up at him before dropping her gaze to his hand on her wrist, "It doesn't feel right," she mumbled, her brows pulling together.

"We'll see." Lynnie breathed, moving her hands down to undo his jeans as well, reaching into them to wrap her fingers around his length as a shiver moved up her spine.

Carolin's lips twisted, "When did we start caring about what my dad says?" she mumbled, kneeling down as the lion cubs reached them, she held her hands for them to lick her finger tips, "You don't want to take them back?" she mumbled.

Kiran frowned, sliding his hand into hers, "But our kids are there?" he mumbled, "And Aleksic is dead."

Caleb gave her jeans a good yank as a shiver wrapped around his spine and he pulled them down her hips; biting his bottom lip as he felt himself harden in her grasp...

Seanan pursed his lips, "Well, we could," he mumbled, giving a slight shrug, "I guess they won't eat me in my sleep."

Anna turned her gaze to his face again as she ran her tongue over her teeth, "You should go back then," she breathed, gently squeezing his hand, "I can't go back yet, I need to do something first."

... Lynn shuddered, wrapping her legs tighter around him as pleasure burst in her abdomen, she groaned his name, digging her fingers into his shoulders.

Carolin smiled, glancing up at him, "I won't let them." she breathed, straightening again.

Kiran frowned even deeper, "Talk to me, Anna, you always leave me out."

Caleb slammed into her a last time; pleasure bursting in his abdomen and having him shudder as he bent his head to kiss her hard.

Seanan nodded slightly, "Let's get you home then," he breathed, glancing over at Logan for confirmation.

Anna slowly shook her head, "I don't know, Kiran," she breathed, "I just.. I just know I have to do something."

Lynn shut her eyes, wrapping her arms around him to hold him tight against her as she savored the feeling of him.

Logan gave a slight nod, "Go on without me." he muttered as Carolin swooped down to pick up her lion cubs in her arms.

Kiran studied her face, "Do you trust me?" he muttered, letting go of her hand now.

Caleb sighed softly as he gently kissed her neck, "How did I do?" he breathed.

Anna studied his face, "Of course I do," she breathed, biting her bottom lip.

Lynn made a pleased noise as she ran her fingers over his back, "I can honestly say I only thought about you." she breathed, "And it was an amazing distraction." she mumbled.

"Then don't go." Kiran said, "That something you have to do, don't do it."

"Good," Caleb breathed, moving his face to kiss her nose, "So, how are you, anyways?" he muttered, pulling back from her to look at her properly.

Anna's brows pulled together again as she watched his face, "Why?" she breathed.

Lynn pursed her lips, thinking about this for a moment, "A bit sad and very angry." she mumbled honestly, "I feel like my goddamn life repeated itself." she said softly, her throat tightening up.

"Doesn't it seem fishy?" Kiran muttered, "An unknown feeling? After you just came back?"

Caleb frowned a bit at this, "How so?" he muttered, raising his hand to run his fingers over her hair.

Anna gave a slight shrug, "Not really," she breathed, "Maybe it's my heart telling me that I shouldn't be here."

Lynn dropped her gaze from his, "Alexander left me." she breathed, "I loved him and he left me, just like Will, like Gregori, and you." she mumbled.

"With me?" Kiran mumbled, searching her gaze.

Caleb frowned even deeper at this, "I'm sorry," he muttered, moving away from her now to fix his jeans.

"Maybe," Anna breathed, raising her hands to rub her head, "I don't know.. I have to.. I have to go," she mumbled, turning on her heel to head down the hall again.

Lynn swallowed hard, feeling almost cheap as she slid off the wall and fixed her clothes, "Don't be." she mumbled, "I'll be fine, I always am." she said softly, looking up at him again.

Kiran watched her go but he didn't move after her as he turned to disappear back to his new, little apartment in Moscow.

Caleb nodded slightly, "I know," he muttered, "But I don't want to be part of the reason that you're not fine right now."

Anna shut her eyes a moment; a painful buzzing starting in her bones as she stopped, briefly glancing over her shoulder before she started back towards the room, "Caden?" she muttered, stepping inside to see if he was alright.

Lynn bit her lip as she grabbed his shirt, she pulled him towards her a bit and leaned up to kiss him gently, "I love you, did you know?" she mumbled.

Caden blinked slowly, his head feeling like painful needles were jabbing into it, he grunted, "Wha happen?" he slurred.

Caleb couldn't help it when a slight smile curved his lips, "Yeah, I know," he breathed, kissing her softly.

Anna bit her bottom lip, "You fell," she breathed, holding her hand out to him.

Lynnie kissed him back just as softly, "What do we do now?" she breathed.

Caden frowned deeply, "I dun feel so good." he mumbled, his head thoroughly spinning.

Luce swallowed hard as she finished telling her mother all she had heard and seen when she circled back to the Square; Eliya's gaze was dark, her lips pursed tight, "Thank you, sweetheart." she said after a moment before she stood and walked slowly back to her room. Her head buzzed but she didn't let herself think as she showered herself clean, she headed to her closet afterwards, shimmying into a black thong and a black peacoat and nothing else before she stepped into strappy heels. Eliya caught her reflection in the mirror, her eyes seemed to pulse, a wickedness spreading across her lips like a smile as she disappeared to find Alexander Vladislav.

"We go home," Caleb breathed, a soft smile playing on his lips.

Anna cocked her pretty head to the side, a soft smile curving her plump lips, "I know," she breathed, "But do you know who I am?"

Lynn raised a brow, "And where is that these days?' she breathed, smiling softly.

Caden frowned a little at her, "You're Anna." he mumbled, cocking his head at her, "Who else would you be?"

Caleb couldn't help but grin at this, "Some palace in the desert," he breathed, holding his hand out to her.

Anna gave a slight shrug, "My evil clone?" she breathed, smiling a bit wider at him now, "Are you staying here?"

Lynn took his hand, "Kiss me a last time before we get there?" she mumbled, "I don't think your wife will appreciate it as much when we're home."

Caden wrinkled his nose, "Where is here again?"

Caleb grinned even wider at this, but he didnt say anything as he pulled her to him and raised his hands to frame her beautiful face before he bent his head to kiss her deeply and thoroughly; as loving as he possibly could be.

Anna bit her bottom lip, "Judas' palace, I think," she mumbled, "I don't know, you took me here."

Lynn made a sweet noise, leaning into the kiss, her lids fluttering before she pulled back a little, her cheeks flushing pink, "A kiss like that can be dangerous." she breathed against his lips.

Caden frowned even deeper at this, "I am so confused, right now."

Caleb bit her upper lip, "Why?" he breathed, opening his eyes to look at her as he rubbed his nose against hers.

Anna's brows pulled together at this, "Then we really need to get out of here," she mumbled, tugging on him now.

Lynn smiled a bit, "Because I start to think naughty things about you." she mumbled.

Caden got to his feet, "Where's Kiran?" he muttered.

"That's the point," Caleb breathed, gently kissing her again before he sighed, glancing around the square, "If you go home, I should probably get to Hell.. I haven't seen it in a while."

Anna gave a slight shrug, "I don't know," she mumbled, starting out of the room again.

Alexander Vladislav sat in his den in Natacha and his old mansion in Russia with a dark look over his handsome face as he downed another glass of whiskey; his pretty head filled with thoughts and strangely enough, none of them of his wife. He felt the shift in the air when his daughter-in-law appeared, but he didn't move to meet her or say anything as he poured himself a new drink.

Lynn gave a slight nod, "Be careful, I hear it's... Different." she mumbled, running her fingers over her hair.

Eliya bit her lip, "Sitting alone in the dark drinking whiskey?" she breathed, "What does a man have to contemplate so much?"

Caleb nodded slightly, "Be careful," he breathed, kissing her forehead before he shut his eyes to transport himself to his throne room.

Alexander couldn't help the grin that curved his lips at this as he raised his gaze to her pretty face, "I hear it runs in the family."

Eliya gave a slight shrug of her slender shoulders, "I suppose your son sits in his den contemplating his wretched soul." she breathed, something dark about her eyes as she moved to prop herself up on the corner of his desk, draping one leg over her the other.

Alexander cocked his head a bit to the side as he looked her over, his grin widening some, "He hurt you again," he muttered, "Are you surprised?"

A mirthless smile curved Eliya's lips, "No, I can't say I'm surprised, per se, just wounded, I always come to think a chapter of our lives is done with and then your wife shows up to prove me wrong again."

Alexander pursed his lips; his eyes darkening more now, "I suppose he's always had a weakness for her," he muttered, giving a slight shrug.

Her gaze flickered to his face, "Weaknesses can be exploited, it would be a shame if someone thought to hurt our King by letting him find her head waiting for him in bed." she muttered, her lips twisting.

Alexander gave another shrug, but he said nothing to this as he shot back his drink and poured himself a new one; grabbing a fresh glass for her as well and pouring an equal amount of whiskey into it.

Eliya took the glass, she pressed it to her lips and downed it with a tilt of her head, "Don't you care, Alexander?" she muttered, placing her glass on his desk with a thud, "Don't you hurt?" she breathed, biting her lip hard.

Alexander placed his glass on the desk, a slight frown curving his lips as he folded his hands in his lap, "Do I look like I hurt, sweetheart?"

Eliya studied his face, "No, you look like your son." she breathed, her eyes burning, "You're both the same," she muttered, sliding off his desk, she started to leave, stopping when she reached the doorway to turn back to him, "For the record, I had hoped you would be different to her, I hoped you would have stayed." she said before she vanished to find Caleb.

Caleb had seated himself in his throne room in Hell; his usually so light, green-blue eyes, now the color of the Pit. Bleed it Out by Linkin Park was blasting through the room as he sat there, only wearing black slacks now as he drummed his fingers on the armrest of his throne.

Eliya had changed into a fitting white dress, she bit her lip hard as she moved towards his throne, "Do you love her?" she breathed, knowing he'd hear her over the music.

Caleb's gaze shifted to his little woman, his head tilting a bit to the side as he looked her over, "No," he muttered, knowing she'd hear him as well.

Eliya pursed her lips, "But you always go back to her." she breathed, her pretty eyes shimmering, "It makes me think that maybe I've been standing in the way of you being happier with someone else all this time."

Caleb ran his fingers over his hair, "Have you considered that you're the one I always come back to?" he breathed, slowly standing now.

Eliya nodded slowly, "It's more like a back and forth." she muttered, studying him, "I went to see your father, I thought about fucking him to get back at you for this." she breathed, "But I didn't, I just left." she mumbled, shaking her head.

Caleb gave a slight shrug, "Is there a specific reaction you want from me, baby?" he breathed, taking a step towards her.

Eliya shook her head, "The only thing I want is for you to be happy." she breathed, her throat tightening as a tear or two slid down her face, "You should make her your Queen, she's more suited for it than I am, you can have me on Earth and have her in Hell but I'm done fighting about this, whatever will make you happy, Caleb."

Caleb didn't say anything to this; something about his face softening as he moved closer to her and slid his arms around her, not really caring if she wanted it or not as he kissed the top of her head, "I love you," he whispered.

Eliya wrapped her arms around him, hugging him tight, "I love you so much," she breathed, burying her face against his chest as she shut her eyes.

Caleb sighed against her hair; giving her a gentle squeeze as he shut his eyes, "I don't want Lynn as my queen," he mumbled, "I want you. No one but you."

Eliya didn't say anything to this but tilted her head back to press her lips against his and kiss him in the most loving way. She rubbed her nose against his, "Can we go home?" she asked softly, studying his pretty face.

Kiran sat with his mother on the steps of Caleb's palace, he smiled softly at her even though there was something sad about his gaze, "I don't know what's wrong with her." he mumbled, speaking of Anna, "Sometimes I really don't understand her."

Caleb nodded slowly, "Sure, baby," he breathed, reaching back to grab his black t-shirt before stepping back to pull it on.

Anna laid in Kiran's bed in Moscow; naked except for the silky sheet she was under. A soft smile curved her lips as she ran her fingers along the silky linen, loving the smell of her ex-husband on the sheets as she shut her eyes again, knowing that Joseph could be there any minute to pick her up.

Eliya cocked her head as she watched him, "Are we okay?" she asked softly, biting her lip hard.

Lynnie pursed her lips, "I know, sweetheart, just don't give up on her, baby, you love her, find her and prove it to her." she said softly, studying her son.

"We're perfect, baby," Caleb said softly, holding his hand out to her, "You ready to go home?"

Anna made a low noise before she finally slid out of bed; not bothering with anything but her white, lacy thong as she began padding into the kitchen to find some tequila.

Eliya took his hand, bringing it to her lips to kiss his knuckles, "I'm ready." she muttered, smiling softly.

Kiran bit his lip, opening his mouth to say something when there was a knock on the palace doors, he frowned a little, motioning for his mother to stay put as he got to his feet; he strode towards the door, his hand on the butt of his gun as he pulled it open, his eyes widened, "William?" he breathed, studying his father.

Caleb smiled softly at her, but he said nothing as he transported them back to the palace

Eliya blinked slowly as Lynn was suddenly moving past them towards the front door, gun drawn in the same way Kiran's was and William Hawthorne had his hands up in a placating gesture as he stood in their doorway, "What the hell is going on here?" she mumbled

"Remind me why I didn't lock this motherfucker up in Purgatory," Caleb muttered, slipping an arm around Eliya's waist to keep her close to him.

Anna sighed as she stood over the stove, cooking breakfast when she felt the shift in the air and Joseph grinned behind her as he looked over her backside, "Delicious," he breathed.
Anna glanced over her shoulder at him, "Then why don't you go bite me?" she muttered, raising a perfect brow at him before she turned her attention back to her cooking, Joseph grinning even wider as he slid onto the chair by the kitchen island, "Were you expecting someone?" he breathed, "Like Kiran Hawthorne?"
Anna sighed, "No, of course not," she mumbled; her eyes shutting tight when the only reply Joseph gave was the press of a button, sending electrocuting spikes through her entire body and having her drop to the floor, whimpering.

William grinned as his gaze slid over all of them, "For a welcoming party, you're so...welcoming." he muttered, "I come in peace, I swear." he said, showing his empty hands, "You wouldn't kill a defenseless human, would you?"

"Sure we would," Caleb breathed, his dark eyes only on William as they began to lighten again and he pushed Eliya behind him before starting for the door as well, "What do you want?"

William's smile became soft, "I just want to make amends." he breathed, "I was given a third chance at life, I don't want to waste it."

"Can I shoot him?" Adam called from the top of the stairs; his arms crossed over his chest as he watched them.

Lynn pursed her lips, glancing at Kiran, "It's your call sweetheart, I don't care if he lives or dies." she muttered, dropping her gun to her side.
Will made a noise, "Ooh, so hurtful dahlin." he retorted, "It breaks my poor, black heart."
Kiran narrowed his eyes at his father, "Shut up." he said, lowering his gun, "We won't kill you yet, if only to find out who the fuck brought you back," he sighed and glanced back at his son, "I have to go get your mother, if he tries anything, shoot him." he said and disappeared.

Adam nodded a bit to himself, "I can't wait to shove a knife into your heart," he muttered, a wide smile curving his lips as he started down the stairs.

Anna gritted her teeth as she pulled herself back to her feet, shuddering some before she reached up to fix her curls; well knowing that Joseph was gone already, she turned her attention back to her cooking even though her entire body was still buzzing, and she didn't even feel Kiran.

William smirked, "Still got your panties in a twist, Adam?" he muttered, stepping inside.
"Watch your tongue Will, it might get ripped out." Lynnie breathed, her violet-silver eyes shimmering.

Kiran bit his lip as he stood in the kitchen entryway, "Anna?" he asked softly.

Adam grinned widely at this, but he said nothing as he moved to stand next to his grandmother, "Can we shoot him now?" he muttered, glancing up at her.

Anna flinched, straightening fully now before she turned to face him; the only thing covering her bare breasts being her hair and a soft smile curved her lips, "Hi," she breathed, leaning against the counter.

Lynn smirked, "Not yet," she muttered, "If anything, we'll let him simmer before we kill him nice and slow." she breathed.
William grinned crookedly, "You don't want to kill me, dahlin," he muttered, "I think after all these years, you still got a soft spot for me." he breathed, his hand moving suddenly to wrap around her neck as he slammed his lips into hers for good measure.

Kiran studied her, "My mom gave me some good advice." he muttered, "She said I shouldn't let you go. And I'm not going to."

Adam's lips twisted, but he didn't say anything; taking a long step away from them simply because he knew his grandmother could handle herself.

Anna smirked at this as she pushed away from the counter and moved towards him, something almost playful in her eyes as she reached him and curled her fingers in his shirt, tilting her pretty head back a little to look up at him, "What makes you think you have a choice?" she breathed.

Lynn jerked her head back, gritting her teeth before she rammed her forehead into his nose, "There's my soft spot for you." she muttered as he stumbled back, blood gushing down his face, "Fuck, I think you broke it." he grumbled, gritting his teeth.

Kiran studied her, "What makes you think you do?" he muttered, arching a brow at her.

Caleb breathed a laugh, "Humanity is a bitch, isn't it?" he breathed, grinning widely.

"I'm a free woman," Anna muttered, arching a brow back at him as she ran her fingers up his chest to curl her fingers in his collar, "There's nothing you can do about it," she breathed, making a quick move with her hand to rip open his shirt.

William grunted, "Fuck off, your majesty." he muttered, blood coating his fingers as he tilted his head back to stop the blood and started for a bathroom or something.
Lynn shook her head, "Why is he here?" she muttered, dragging her fingers through her hair.

Kiran raised a brow, moving to pin her up against the wall, her front pressed against the plaster, her wrists locked in one of his hands, "You're my woman, Anna, and there's nothing you can do about it." he breathed into her ear.

"To cause drama and chaos," Caleb muttered, putting on his best narrator voice before he shook his head, "Can't we bury him alive in the desert or something?"

Anna made a low noise; purposely grinding her backside against him as she lowered her head, biting her bottom lip, "Feeling possessive today, baby?" she breathed.

Lynn grinned to herself, "That's one idea." she muttered before turning to Adam, "Hey kiddo," she breathed, realizing she hadn't gotten to say hi to her grandson properly.

Kiran didn't answer her but to sink his teeth into her shoulder, marking her as his as he used his other hand to slid it across her tummy and into the front of her panties to touch her.

Adam looked up at his grandmother again, smiling widely, "Hey, grandma," he breathed.

Anna's shut her eyes, a gasp parting her lips as she pressed her backside harder against him, "This is not gonna turn out how you think, baby," she breathed, tilting her head a little to look up at him before she shifted to have her back against the wall, reaching between them to undo his pants.

Lynn grinned, hugging her one of her favorite grandchildren, "How are you, sweetheart?" she mumbled, moving back to study him properly now.

Kiran grabbed her thighs and wrapped her legs around his waist as he shredded her panties...

Adam smiled warmly at her, "I'm good, grandma, much better than last time," he breathed, cocking his pretty head a bit to the side, "How are you?"

.. Anna dug her fingers into his shoulders, deep enough to draw blood and more as she whimpered his name; ecstasy having her shudder as she tightened her legs around him.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Sun Sep 30, 2012 9:55 am

Lynn bit her lip, considering this question for the second time that day, "Not as fine as I want to be but getting there." she mumbled, smiling softly at Adam.

Kiran dipped his head, nibbling on her breasts as he pressed deep inside her, feeling pleasure burst in his abdomen.

Adam nodded slightly, "You'll be fine, grandma," he breathed, smiling warmly at her still, "I have no doubt in my mind."

Anna gasped; her body tensing for a moment as she moved her fingers into his hair; grabbing a fistful to yank his head back and kiss his mouth hard.

Lynn smiled softly at this, "Thanks kid." she breathed, "I'm starving, have you eaten yet?" she muttered, glancing around the room to ask all of them.

Kiran bit her mouth hard, gripping her hips hard enough to bruise them.

Caleb gave a slight shrug, Adam doing the same thing a moment after before he sighed, "I guess we're all too busy worrying to eat," he mumbled, wrinkling his nose, "Earth has gone to Hell."

Anna made a noise against his mouth, "I have to go," she breathed, her pale gaze meeting his as she moved her hands to touch his face; something absolutely wanting still in her voice.

Lynn arched a brow at him, "And are you not the King of Hell?" she breathed, "We've faced bad before, we can face it again."
Eliya bit her lip, "She's right." she mumbled, smiling a little to herself, "We'll make it, we always do."
Lynn nodded, "See, that's two beautiful women telling you the same thing, it must be true." she said, "Now, how about some delicious home cooked pelmeni?" she breathed.

Kiran frowned deeply, "Where?" he asked softly.

Caleb made a sweet noise at this, "You have no idea," he breathed, a wide grin curving his lips before he started for the kitchen to grab a beer before dinner.
Adam couldn't help but smile at this, but he didn't say anything as he started after Caleb.

Anna smiled softly at him, "I have to work," she breathed, tightening around him again for another moment before she loosened her legs around him.

Lynn and Eliya shared a look before they rolled their eyes and started towards the kitchen, Lynn slipping out of her leather jacket and boots to get comfortable for cooking, "So are there any hot guys here who aren't married or related to me?" she muttered, reaching up to pull her hair back.

Kiran raised a brow, "When did you get a job?" he muttered, pulling back from her slowly to fix his jeans.

Caleb gave a shrug as he grabbed two beers out of the fridge, "I'm probably the wrong person to answer that," he muttered, joining Adam by the kitchen isle before handing a beer to the kid.

"Today," Anna breathed, reaching up to fix her curls as she turned to sashay into the bedroom to find her clothes.

Lynn rolled her eyes as Eliya considered this, "Aiden is pretty hot but I haven't talked to him all that much." she mumbled, "And there's... well, there's... someone else I'm sure." she breathed, frowning to herself as she tried to think through this.

Kiran watched her for a moment, "Doing what?" he called.

Adam grinned at this as he popped open his beer and took a long swig, "I guess we're all out of men here, grandma," he mumbled, giving a slight shrug.

"Medicine-stuff," Anna called back, scrunching up her pretty nose before she found her dark, ripped jeans and stepped into them before she began to shimmy them on.

Lynn grinned to herself, "I guess I'll just have to go hunting for some." she muttered as she moved towards the fridge to find things to cook her pelmeni.

"Medicine-stuff?" He muttered, following after her now.

Caleb made a face, "In the desert?" he mumbled, his gaze following her as he took a sip of his beer, "Who knows, maybe we'll find Aladdin."

Anna nodded a bit to herself, not even noticing him as she slipped into her oversized top, not even bothering with a bra as she began searching for her shoes, "Medicine-stuff," she mumbled.

Lynn rolled her eyes as she grabbed a package of ground beef, "Well, I don't like spending nights alone," she muttered, straightening, "Being alone means dwelling and I hate to dwell."

"Start drinking," Caleb muttered, giving another shrug as he took another sip from his beer.

Lynn wrinkled her nose, "I already drink." she muttered, turning to face him, "What's wrong with not wanting to be alone?" she breathed, raising a brow at him.

Kiran bit his lip hard, "With who?" he muttered, raising a brow at her.

"Nothing," Caleb muttered, raising a brow back at her as he took another sip of his beer.

Anna's brows pulled together at this as she straightened, turning to face him, "Why?" she breathed, cocking her pretty head a bit to the side to study him.

"Then there isn't anything wrong with looking for a little nighttime company." Lynn muttered, getting out the other ingredients as she began to cook.

Kiran studied her, "Because I want to know." he breathed, "Why not?"

Caleb glanced over at Adam; both of them shrugging but neither of them saying anything as they turned their attention back to their beers.

Anna stepped into her beige UGGs before she began fidgeting around for her jacket, "It's none of your business," she mumbled.

Lynn glanced up at them, she let out her breath, shaking her head before she turned and stalked out of the kitchen, not hungry anymore. Eliya made a face, "Way to go." she muttered, pursing her lips as she took up the cooking.

Kiran raised a brow, "Then you're not going."

Caleb made a face, "What did I do?" he mumbled, frowning deeply at this as he watched Lynn leave them.

Anna made a face to herself before she find her leather jacket and slid into it, turning to face him again, "Listen," she said, serious all of a sudden, "That possessive, 'I'm the boss'-thing, was cute before, but you really don't have anything to say about this," she muttered, raising a brow at him before she steered for the door.

Eliya bit her lip, "You have to remember, Lynn is still a woman and she still hurts." she mumbled, "She's sad right now, baby." she shrugged.

Kiran grabbed her arm roughly and threw her back into the room, "What the hell is your problem, Anna?"

Caleb seemed to frown even more at this as he glanced back at his woman, "Do you think I should talk to her?" he mumbled.

Anna stumbled a bit before she caught herself; her lips twisting as she moved to shove him into the door frame, "You're my problem," she said through her teeth, shoving him again, "Who the hell do you think you are, telling me what I can and cannot do? My dad?"

Eliya bit her lip, glancing up at him, "I think you should find her before William does and exploits how sad she is." she said softly and quite honestly.

"No, I'm the guy trying to keep your stupid ass alive." Kiran yelled, his eyes darkening as he grabbed her arm hard and shoved her away from him, "You never fucking listen to me, Anna, and you get yourself killed or kidnapped or beaten or raped and make me feel powerless because no matter what I do you don't listen."

Caleb pursed his lips; finishing his beer before he slid off his chair and started after Lynn, "Then maybe I can kill the bastard."

Anna gritted her teeth when she stumbled and fell on her ass this time; glaring up at him, "Maybe that you give you a hint about how much I want you to go away," she breathed, pushing herself back to her feet, "I'm not going to get killed, I know what the hell I'm doing, Kiran, okay?" she mumbled, taking a step towards him again, "Just leave me alone."

Lynn found herself in the den, a bottle of whiskey in her hand, her eyes stinging as she tensed, feeling William's arms around her waist as he muttered things in her ear, his lips travelling along her neck and shoulder.

"No." Kiran said, his voice rising, "You need me whether you like it or not and you're stuck with me." he said, his eyes darkening, "I'm not walking away from you." he breathed, his voice dropping to it's normal tone.

Caleb steered for his den; figuring that Lynnie would have found his liquor by now as he pushed open the door, not even waiting for them to acknowledge him as he moved towards them and immediately punched William Hawthorne in the nose, as hard as he possibly could.

Anna frowned deeply at him, but instead of arguing, she sighed, her slender shoulders giving a shrug, "Then you're coming with me," she muttered, crossing her arms over her chest.

William made a pained noise as his head jerked back and he stumbled away from Lynn, she let out her breath, feeling the tears well in her eyes as she moved towards Caleb, not even saying anything as she put her arms around and buried her face against his shoulder, starting to cry.

"Fine." Kiran breathed, moving into his room to grab a new shirt and pull it over his head, "Let's go."

Caleb slid an arm around Lynn, giving her a gentle squeeze and a kiss on her hair before he raised his gaze to William's face, his eyes blackening, "Leave. Now. Or I will kill you."

Anna rolled her eyes; knowing she'd end up regretting this decision as she started for the door, "Just don't be a smartass," she muttered.

William held his bloodied nose as he studied them, "Fine." he said nasally, "But I think you'd rather have me here than him." he said, "Because when he gets here everything will change." he muttered, starting to leave.

Kiran rolled his eyes but he didn't say anything as he followed after her.

Caleb's eyes narrowed some at this, knowing the bastard wanted him to tell him to stop and he hated himself for even opening his mouth as he sighed, "Who?"

Anna was silent, still fidgeting with her curls until they were sitting perfectly on her pretty head and she left the apartment; soon finding herself down the hall of stairs and stepping out onto the street. She briefly glanced back to see if Kiran was still following her before she started for the black Mercedes limousine that was waiting for them; a rare sight in downtown Moscow after the man-made Armageddon.

William turned to him now, "Do you think I would tell you now?" he muttered, "I'm petty enough to let you and my ex-whore burn for a broken nose." he breathed, his eyes darkening as he let go of his face, his nose snapping into place on his own as he began to heal.

Kiran followed her into the car, keeping his mouth shut.

Caleb held Lynn tighter to her, but he said nothing, simply staring at William and waiting for him to leave.

Anna seated herself comfortably in the limousine before she glanced around; meeting the faces of Joseph the Fiend and Doctor Asher Kane, sitting with a heavily tattooed Russian she had met at the Kane Compound in St. Petersburg. She bit her bottom lip, but she said nothing as the door was closed behind them and the driver got back into the car.
Doctor Kane cocked his head a bit to the side, studying them for a moment before he smiled, "You must be Kiran Hawthorne," he muttered, still sounding as polite as ever, "I've heard so much about you from sweet, little Anna, it's a pleasure to finally-"
"Shut up, Kane," Joseph muttered, turning his black gaze on the scientist as the limousine finally began to move.

William grinned crookedly, running his tongue along his bloodied teeth as he turned and disappeared from the den. Lynnie sniffled, "I'm sorry." she mumbled, her throat tightening, "I didn't mean to cry,"

Kiran raised a brow to himself, "Great, mad scientists and demons." he muttered, crossing his arms over his chest as he leaned back in his seat.

Caleb shushed her, gently squeezing her again, "Don't worry about it," he mumbled, glancing down at her now, "Are you okay?"

Anna glanced over at him, a frown forming her plump lips as she reached over to pinch his side hard, giving him a pointed look.

Lynnie shook her head, "I feel cheap, Caleb." she breathed, rubbing her eyes, "Why did he leave me? What did I do?" she muttered, tears slipping down her face, "William must be right about me," she whispered, her lips trembling.

Kiran pinched her back but he was silent again.

Caleb shook his head, "Fuck that," he said, his eyes narrowing a bit as he watched her face, "William is retarded and so is my dad for leaving you. You're an incredible woman and if only they saw what I see in you, they'd love you as much as I do and they should."

Anna made a face at him, but she said nothing as Joseph looked between them, "How sweet," he breathed, watching both of them for a moment before looking only at Kiran, "Why are you here?"

Lynn sniffled, "What do you see in me?" she breathed, her violet-silver eyes shimmering as she studied him, "Because no one else sees it and the way it looks, I'm going to die alone." she muttered, whimpering at the notion as she buried her face in her hands.

Kiran nodded to Anna, "I'm her bodyguard."

Caleb rolled his eyes at her before he ran his fingers down her back to grab her thighs and lift her; placing her on the desk before he moved her hands away from her face and placed his hands on each side of her, "You wanna know what I see?" he muttered, leaning in to gently kiss her mouth, "I see a beautiful, strong, independent woman who doesn't take shit from anyone," he breathed, leaning in to kiss her again, softer this time, "And I love that about you."

"A very unwanted one, at that," Anna muttered, crossing her arms over her chest again as she dropped her gaze into her lap.
Asher Kane laughed at this, "We all need bodyguards, dearie," he breathed, "It's desperate times."

Lynn took a shuddering breath as she studied his face, "But you don't want to be with me either, Caleb." she mumbled, "You can say love me and kiss me but we both know you don't want to be with me and I'm okay with that, I am, but I want what you and Eliya have, I want someone whose going to love me no matter what, who always comes back." she whispered, tears dripping down the pretty curve of her nose.

Kiran smirked but he didn't say anything still leaning back against his seat as he studied the men in the car.

"And you'll have something better than that, when you meet the right person," Caleb muttered, a soft smile curving his lips, "Do you think Eliya's happy with me? I cheat on her and beat her, often, I have a drinking problem and I'm a shitty father to her children. She settled for me."

Anna bit her bottom lip harder, but she didnt say anything as she began fiddling with her old wedding ring in the golden chair around her neck; considering it her lucky charm now.
Joseph pursed his lips, "I trust that you'll be able to restrain yourself when we get to the lab, Mister Hawthorne," he muttered, raising his brow, "I sense an irritating, Unnatural trouble-maker vibe from you."
"And I wont hesitate you chop your head off if you find yourself inadequate to keep yourself and the girl under control," The Russian muttered from his corner, a dead-serious look on his heavily tattooed face.

Lynn shook her head, "No, she didn't," she breathed, "She just can't live without you." she mumbled, sniffling, "You know that, she loves you."

Kiran grinned, "I'll keep my mouth shut, Joey, and my hands to myself." he muttered, making a notion like he zipped his lips.

Caleb pursed his lips, "Maybe," he muttered, "But I still think I married up."

Anna made a face at him, but she didn't say anything as she reached over to pinch his side again; more discretely this time.
The Russian smirked, reaching into the inner pocket of his blazer to grab an empty syringe, not even saying anything as he held it out to Anna and she bit her lip, taking it without question.

Lynn sniffled, wiping at her face, "Yeah, that's true." she mumbled, her throat still tight, "I need a drink."

Kiran raised a brow at this but he didn't say anything, figuring Anna wouldn't explain either way.

William Hawthorne found himself amongst the ruins of an old Cathedral, he sighed, feeling blessed immortality in his bones once again; he stuffed his hands into the pockets of his slacks as he waited. There was a shift in the air and a thump from the alter behind him, he turned slightly to face the man half-clothed in shadow crouched almost bird-like on the alter, black decaying wings stretched out behind him, shifting in the moonlight pouring though the broken ceiling, his black encased gold eyes shimmered and bore into him, “I assume I did well if I’m immortal again?” Will breathed.
Azazel gave a slight nod, “Well enough.” He breathed in his English sort of accent, “She will come to us tonight.” He muttered.
William pursed his lips tight, “What do you want with her?” he asked, himself wondering if it was out of curiosity or guilt for selling his ex-wife to the damned.
The demon met his gaze, “Do you truly wish to know, William Hawthorne?” he said softly, something darkening about him.
The man nodded slowly, “I do.” He breathed and suddenly the demon was upon him, his long clawed fingers digging into his flesh; he made a choking noise, his eyes rolled back into his head and he saw flashes of images, moving so fast they were hard to discern but he somehow understood; Azazel let him go after a moment, “And now you see.” He breathed, disappearing in a shift of air.
William Hawthorne fell to his knees, his heart beating rapidly in his chest and nearly clawing its way through his throat; for the first time in his existence, he wondered if he’d chosen the wrong side.

Seven Days later...
Lynnie stumbled through the foyer of the Palace in Akeldama, she was bloodied up and bruised, her hair hung in disheveled curls around her slender shoulders, a makeshift dress of blankets and a belt was the only thing that kept her otherwise naked. Tears were dripping down her face, blurring her vision further, the taste of blood was heavy on her tongue and there was something swelling in her abdomen and she was so scared, she hit her knees hard, screaming for Caleb.

Caleb woke with a start; the sound of the woman screaming making his heart stop for a moment before he jumped out of bed, pulling on a pair of sweats before he hurried downstairs.

Anna bit her bottom lip; purposely not looking at Kiran now as she shrugged out of her leather jacket, letting it fall from her slender shoulders before she held out her arm, a cute, pained noise escaping her plump lips when she had uncapped the syringe and stuck the needle into the crook of her arm.

Lynn stayed on the ground, her eyes shut tight as she tried to get a grip on herself, something shaken deep inside.

Kiran blinked slowly, "What is that?" he muttered.

Caleb frowned deeply when he spotted her, "Lynn, where the fuck have you been?" he breathed, skipping steps as he half-ran down the stairs, dropping onto his knees in front of her.

"A syringe," Anna muttered, her gaze only on the needle as the container began to fill with her blood and she bit her lip harder before she slid it out of her vein and closed the gap between her underarm and her biceps before she handed the wine-red syringe to the Russian.
"Our test-subjects of the serum are permitted to hand in a blood-sample once a day for testing," Joseph muttered, the limo bumping now as it drove down a heavily mine-hit road outside of Moscow.

Lynnie shook her head, "I.. I don't know." she breathed, swallowing hard as she looked up at him, "I just woke up and I felt like I'd been drugged." she muttered, her eyes burning, "Caleb..." she whimpered, moving her sheet away to show him the swolleness to her still rather small tummy, "Something is inside of me."

Kiran raised a brow, "I thought Anna was human again?"

Caleb's brows pulled together at this and he frowned even deeper as he reached out, placing his hand on her belly, "How the hell did this happen?" he mumbled, trying to feel for whatever was inside of her.

"Guess you thought wrong," The Russian muttered from his corner, a wicked grin curving his lips as Joseph breathed a laugh, obviously amused as his gaze moved over the girl again, his dark eyes slowly blackening to the color of the Pit, "I'm afraid to disappoint you, Mister Hawthorne, but I don't work with humans."

Lynn gasped, feeling the thing kick inside her, tears slid down her beautiful face, "It's not possible." she whispered.

Kiran's jaw clenched but he kept himself from saying or doing anything stupid.

Caleb bit his lip as he raised his gaze to her face again, "We can cut it out," he mumbled, "Whatever it is."

Anna bit her upper lip, feeling a nervous sort of nausea turning in her stomach as she shuffled a bit closer to Kiran, not really caring what he thought about everything as she laid her head on his shoulder and closed her eyes; waiting until the men were in their own conversation before she whispered, "You shouldn't have come."

Lynn felt a wave of nausea broil through her stomach and her lips twisted, "I couldn't do that." she whispered, placing her hand against the bump, "It's alive." she whispered as Eliya came down the stairs slowly, still looking a bit sleepy, "What's happening?' she mumbled.

"Neither should've you." Kiran breathed, shutting his eyes for a moment.

"Something's inside of Lynn and she won't let me cut it out," Caleb muttered, frowning at Lynnie as if he was a child being denied his favorite activity.

Anna sighed softly, "You're gonna die there with me," she mumbled, shutting her eyes a bit tighter, "Please, leave."

Eliya frowned deeply as she moved towards them, "Is it a baby?" she mumbled, tying her robe tighter around her as she knelt down beside them, studying the bump.

"No." Kiran muttered.

Caleb bit his bottom lip, "I don't know, but it's alive," he mumbled, studying the bump curiously.

Anna slowly opened her eyes to look up at him, a frown forming her plump lips as she studied his face, "Do you think I'm kidding?"

Eliya pursed her lips and reached out carefully to press her fingers against the bump, a tingle raced up her arm and she pulled back, "Hmm." she wrinkled her nose, "Let's get you into a bed and cleaned up, okay?" she said softly, "I'm going to wake up Cassy and see if she can feel this out." she mumbled, wrapping an arm around Lynn and helping her to her feet.

Kiran looked down at her, "I'm not leaving." he muttered.

Caleb frowned as he straightened again, "I need a drink," he mumbled, looking over his little women as he took a step back to let them pass.

"I want you to leave," Anna breathed, sounding absolutely sincere, "If you don't, I'm gonna shoot you myself. Just sayin'."

Eliya let the taller woman lean against her as she helped her up the stairs to a spare bedroom, she helped her to sit before she returned to the hallway, padding down to Adam and Cassy's room to wake her daughter.

"You won't." Kiran muttered, "And if you did, I'd survive and then I'd come find you, it's always worse when you run." he breathed, meeting her gaze.

Adam was still sound asleep, his arm wrapped protectively around his girl as he snored in the cutest way possible; his shaggy, ruffled hair sticking out in all sides as he dreamed, seemingly a lot more comfortable with her there.

Anna held his gaze; a teasing sort of smile curving her pretty lips as she raised her face a little to rub her nose against his, "I'm not scared of you," she breathed, "And I'm not running anywhere; you'll know exactly where I am, darling."

Eliya pushed open the door a little, smiling softly as she looked over them, she slid across the floor and moved to shake Cassidy awake, watching her little girl stir, "Whas w'ong?" she slurred sleepily, not sure who was shaking her as she hadn't opened her eyes yet.

Kiran studied her, his lips twisting but he didn't saying anything at he tilted his head back against his seat again.

Adam made a noise, "Whas happenin'?" he mumbled, blinking rapidly to focus on Eliya's face.

Anna smirked as she crossed her arms over her chest, already plotting her ex-husband's demise in her pretty head, well-knowing he'd probably know every bit of her thoughts as she glanced over at the Russian, watching him fiddle with the gun in his belt.

"Something's wrong with Lynn." Eliya said softly, "We need Cassidy to go check her out." she mumbled as her daughter blinked rapidly, trying to wake up.

Adam frowned at this, "What's wrong with her?" he mumbled, slowly starting to sit up.

"I'm not sure yet." Eliya muttered, "But she's...there's...there's something inside of her." she mumbled as Cassy sat up now, rubbing her face, "All right, I'm coming." she breathed, yawning.

Adam made a face to himself as he reached up to rub his eyes, "Why can't we have a single day without shit happenin'?" he mumbled, more to himself than anything.

"We're popular?" Eliya offered as Cassy slid out of bed, pulling her wife beater down over her lady boxes, "You comin'?" she mumbled, looking back at Adam, still a bit sleepy.

"Obviously," Adam mumbled, frowning still as he slid out of bed to pull on his sweats.

Eliya turned to lead them out of the room towards Lynn's room, she ran her fingers through her hair, sighing deeply to herself as she looked over the woman, "You look more controlled." she mumbled, moving into the room to sit on the bed beside her.

Kiran pursed his lips, still not saying anything, letting his own thoughts muffle the sound of hers inside his head.

Adam didn't say anything as he followed after them; absolutely exhausted and drooping as he padded into the room and dumped into a chair not too far from his grandmother's bed.

Caleb had seated himself in his dark, marble-clad throne room in Hell; his handsome, mean looking self sitting perfectly on his throne, dressed in a black suit with a black cashmere shirt underneath. He sighed, his light gaze moving over Evangeline and another woman before he pursed his lips, "Get my Hands," he mumbled, obviously almost drunk out of his mind already. Evangeline remained quiet at this, only giving a nod before she disappeared to find Kiran Hawthorne.

Cassidy entered the room last, she stretched a little, shaking her wrists as if getting ready for a fight before she moved over Lynn, she bit her lip, her gaze moving over the bruises on the woman's body, the blood pooling at cuts in various places, and it sent a shudder down her spine, "I'm sorry." she mumbled, a suspicion rising in her belly as she placed her hand against the woman's abdomen. A spark shot through her wrist and suddenly she was on the other side of the room, her eyes black as the pit and her lips pulled back in a defensive snarl as she curled against the corner, her spine rigid.

Kiran lay in his window seat, a shaft of sunlight outlining his half-naked body, his eyes were shut and he seemed to be sleeping.

Adam blinked slowly, straightening in his chair as his sleepy gaze focused on his girl, "Cass, what's wrong?"

Evangeline cocked her pretty head a bit to the side when she appeared; a soft smile curving her lips as she bent a bit at the waist and reached out to carefully run her fingers over Kiran's hair, "Wake up, sunshine," she breathed.

Cassidy felt a shudder pass through her rigid spine, "It is made of angels and demons." she breathed, shutting her eyes tight for a moment to clear the black away, "It's Lucifer." she whispered.

Kiran didn't open his eyes but suddenly he had his gun pointed right at her face, "Who says I was sleeping?" he muttered, opening one eye, "What do you want?"

Adam frowned even deeper at this before he turned, looking over at his grandmother's belly, "Holy shit," he mumbled.

Evangeline raised a perfect brow at him as she straightened and took a small step back, "Caleb wants to see you," she muttered, crossing her arms over her chest.

Lynn looked down at her belly and shook her head, "That's not..." she swallowed back a wave of nausea, "No, it's not possible." she muttered, sitting up a little as she seemed to lose whatever control she was trying to maintain.

Kiran raised a brow but he didn't question it as he put away his gun and got up to grab his shirt, "Where is he?"

Adam bit his bottom lip, "Where were you, grandma?" he mumbled, a worried line creasing his forehead.

"Hell," Evangeline muttered, her brow raising even higher, "You might want to keep that loaded."

Lynn swallowed hard, "I don't know." she whispered, tears sliding down her face, "It was dark and I felt drugged, I don't know how this could happen to me." she choked out.

"I plan to." Kiran muttered, running his fingers over his hair as he sighed, "Let's go."

William Hawthorne could feel his heart in his throat as he appeared in Alexander Vladislav's den, he looked pensive for a moment before his emotions faded into his usual cold mask, "Mr. Vladislav," he began, leaning in the doorway, "I think we should talk."

Evangeline pursed her lips, but she said nothing as she grabbed a hold of Kiran's arm and shut her eyes; transporting them through the shield and into Caleb Vladislav's throne room where he now stood in the middle of the floor, shoving the tip of his sword into the windpipe of some poor servant of his, before he jerked it to the side to tear his head off; a pleased, wicked grin curving his lips.

Alexander raised his gaze from his book, a frown curving his lips as he looked over William Hawthorne, "Really? Whatever for?"

Kiran studied his best friend curiously, "Enjoying yourself?" he muttered, cocking his head a bit to the side.

William bit his lip, "I've done something truly horrible to the woman we love." he breathed, "And I need you to help me fix it."

Caleb's head snapped up when he heard his brother and he smiled, warmly so, even though it didnt reach his eyes, "Yes," he breathed, giving the sword a bounce to have the tip between his fingers before he held it out to him, his now black eyes only on Kiran, "Care to join me, brother?"

"We?" Alexander muttered, raising a brow at William before he leaned back in his seat, "What happened?"

Kiran took the sword from him, "I would love to." he muttered, feeling the weight of steel in his grasp.

William reached up to rub the stumble on his chin, "I may have perhaps, sold her to some very..nasty people to get my immortality back and I may perhaps regret that decision."

Caleb grinned at this, but he said nothing as he motioned for Evangeline to go grab another demon from the cage. It wasn't long before the woman returned with a thin little brunette with bright green eyes, an absolutely terrified look on her pretty face before Evangeline threw her on her knees in front of Kiran and Caleb moved to take his seat on the throne again.

Alexander raised a brow at this, "Then how about you go fix your mistake instead of talking to me?"

Kiran studied the demon, his face was cold, just like his father taught him, he took a step forward, driving the point of the blade through the girl's throat as his eyes blackened to the color of the Pit.

"Because I can't." William muttered, making a face as this seemed to bother him, "I wouldn't be here if I could do it on my own."

Caleb watched them, a most pleased look on his handsome face as he laughed, leaning back in his throne as the girl's blood splattered all over the place and he grinned, returning his gaze to his brother, "Care for another one?"

Alexander frowned at this for a moment, seeming to think before he pursed his lips, "Go see my son, I'm busy," he mumbled, dropping his gaze back to his book.

Kiran ran his tongue alone his teeth, "Bring them." he muttered.

"That's actually what I need help with." William breathed, running his fingers through his hair, "See, if I go alone, he'll kill me. But you're his father and if you were to perhaps..capture me and bring me to him, there's a chance we both make it out of Hell alive."

Caleb grinned even wider now before he snapped his fingers; this followed by the sound of chains rattling and then screeching, coming from five more demons making a break for Kiran.

Alexander raised his gaze to William's face again, his brow raising slowly, "Fine," he mumbled, shutting his book and placing it on the table.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Sun Sep 30, 2012 10:47 am

Kiran moved fluidly, blood splattering across the throne room floor as he sliced through the five demons like they were nothing, he pulled his sword from the belly of the last to fall and looking back at Caleb, a wicked grin curving his lips, "Satisfied?"

William gave a slight nod, silent for a moment, "You know, she's a good friend to have in your corner." he muttered, "You may not love her as much as she wanted but you loved her enough to set her free." he said softly, something telling in his gaze before it slid behind his mask again, "I really don't care what you do as long as you help me but it's a thought."

"I should ask you the same thing," Caleb breathed, getting back to his feet as he looked over the bodies, an impressed look over his face, "Nicely done."

Alexander gave a shrug; not going to comment on this as he grabbed William's arm and for a brief moment shut his eyes before he transported them to Hell.

Kiran opened his mouth to respond when he felt the shift in the air and he knew his father was there, his fingers clenched around the hilt of the sword before he turned slowly to face the two men he least wanted to see.

Caleb's jaw tightened as his gaze fell onto their father's; but instead of frowning, he smiled, starting for his brother's side, "Look at that; the exact two men I wanted to see."

William grinned crookedly, "Aw, I missed you too." he breathed, looking between his son and the King before he became serious, "Before you start lobbing off heads, I have something you need to know."

Caleb held his hand up, "One second, Will, I just need to do.. one thing," he breathed, taking the sword out of Kiran's hand before he moved for his father; immediately shoving the blade through his rib cage to pierce his heart; not even letting the man say a word before Caleb jerked the sword, letting his father fall to the ground before he turned his black gaze on William Hawthorne, "You were saying?"

William blinked slowly before he brought his gaze to Caleb's face, "I know where Lynn has been these last seven days, I know who hurt her, I know what, or rather who, is inside her." he muttered.

Caleb raised a brow at William; his black eyes slowly starting to lighten again as he pursed his lips, "Tell me," he muttered, knowing that his Left Hand was close by, probably with his sniper-rifle right on William's forehead.

Anna Thomas ran her fingers through her curls once more; an almost satisfied, genuinely joyous look on her beautiful face as she walked on the pavement of Downing Street in London. She had dressed herself in tight, dark jeans and a nakedly thin blue blouse with a deep neckline, looking pretty as ever even in this; even more so because she felt the Russian behind her, his dark gaze constantly fixated on her backside, watching her every move. A faint smile seemed to curve her plump lips when the thought of her ex-husband entered her mind and she felt a shiver wrap around her spine, wondering where he would be about now before she shook it off, for a moment not paying attention to the world around her when she bumped into a broad shouldered, tall figure who simply turned; a charming smile curving his handsome lips and revealing the face of former Special-Agent Matthew James looking down at her, "Anna," he breathed, bending his head to kiss her pretty mouth, "Fancy meeting you here."

Will sighed, "It's Lucifer, there's a group of demons and angels who want to resurrect him using our girl." he muttered, telling the complete truth.

Caleb frowned a bit at this, "So they've gotten Lynn pregnant with him?" he muttered, raising his hand to rub his forehead, "I can't let that happen."

"They won't stop hunting her til Lucifer's dead or born." William muttered.
Kiran studied his father, "You did this, didn't you? It's your fault they want her." he breathed, his black eyes hardening like granite.
William had the decency to look guilty, "I want to fix it now so what does that matter?"

"A lot," Caleb muttered, crossing his arms over his chest, "In case you havent noticed, we don't care much for traitors, William."

William met his gaze, "Then kill me, all I want is for you to keep Lynn safe." he said softly and seemingly sincere.

Caleb pursed his lips, but he said nothing; simply glancing over at his brother to see what he had to say.

Kiran's jaw clenched as he grasped the sword again, not saying anything as he made a jerking movement, driving the tip through his father's throat; William didn't make a noise except to thump as his body hit the ground, "Send Aiden to bring my mother here, I need to talk to you." he said, looking up at Caleb.

Anna bit her bottom lip as she studied Matthew's face, "Matt," she breathed, a warm smile curving her lips now, "What are you doing in London?"
Matthew couldn't help but grin at this, "Let me take you to dinner, I'll tell you all about it," he breathed, slipping an arm around her waist when she nodded and they started down the street together; the Russian following closely behind them.

Caleb nodded slightly, briefly glancing up, over his shoulder at what seemed to be a balcony over the throne. He gave a slight nod before Aiden, who had been sitting there for a while, disappeared to find Lynnéa.
Caleb pursed his lips, "What is it?"

Kiran bit his lip, "There's a certain demon that I want." he started softly, looking up at his best friend, "Joseph."

Lynnie had come to a decision and with the solace of regaining control now lay in bed, naked under a thin, almost see-through white sheet, having always preferred to sleep that way.

Caleb frowned a bit at this, "Why?" he breathed, raising a brow at him.

Aiden appeared a few moments after; a cold shudder moving over him before his gaze focused on Lynnie, "Miss Scarlett," he breathed, cocking his head a bit to the side as he looked over her.

"Because he's working with the newly resurrected Asher Kane on something nasty and they have Anna helping them do it." Kiran muttered.

Lynn was up in seconds, shoving Aiden into a wall, pressing her forearm up against his throat and her knee between his legs without actually assaulting him yet, "Who are you?" she breathed, her violet-silver eyes shimmering in the dark as she studied his unfamiliar, handsome face.

Caleb sighed, "Right," he muttered, shaking his head for a moment as he moved to take a seat on his throne, "I'll have someone find Joseph. Maybe you should find your girl in the meantime," he muttered, returning his gaze to Kiran's face, "A little bird told me she's in London. With Matt."

Aiden gritted his teeth but he didn't struggle, simply meeting Lynn's gaze as his jaw tightened, "I'm Caleb's Left Hand," he choked out, "He and your son wants to see you."

A muscle in Kiran's jaw twitched, "Huh." he ran his fingers through his hair, "If you don't need me than maybe I should go now..." he muttered.

Lynn face softened as she let go of him, "Sorry." she said softly, taking a step back, "Paranoid." she mumbled, not in the slightest worried about being naked, "You must be Aiden then?"

Caleb nodded slightly, "Seems like playtime is over anyways," he muttered, giving a shrug as he smiled again, "I'll call you when I have Joseph."

Aiden took a breath before he straightened out his t-shirt, nodding slightly, "Yeah, I am," he breathed.

Kiran gave a slight nod before he disappeared to London to find Anna and the Special Agent.

Lynn bit her lip, "I guess I should dress." she breathed, turning to saunter towards her closet.

Anna and Matthew sat in a booth in an Italian restaurant, their dinner replaced by alcoholic drinks that already had the girl giggling and curling a strand of her hair around her finger, a playful smile forming her plump lips as Matthew continued his story of how he ended up in London after the bombs hit New York.

Aiden averted his gaze, biting his lip as he nodded a bit to himself, "So.. Lucifer, huh?" he mumbled, biting his lip even harder when he realized how messed up that sounded.

Kiran appeared outside the restaurant, making a face at how stalker-ish that was before he entered the place, glancing around for Anna and the Fed.

Lynn's lips twisted, "It's a baby, it has Lucifer's soul, but it's still a baby." she mumbled, pulling on a pair of jeans and loose fitting sheer blouse before stepping out of the closet again, "I'm ready." she breathed.

Matthew grinned; not even noticing Kiran Hawthorne entering the restaurant as he leaned closer to Anna, gently kissing her pretty mouth before he moved his fingers into her hair to kiss her deeply and thoroughly, loving the sweet noises she made against his mouth.

Aiden nodded slightly, but he didn't say anything as he reached out to grab Lynn's hand and poof them to Hell, where Caleb still sat in his throne; a glass of whiskey in his hand now.

Kiran raised a brow to himself when they spotted them, he moved to grab the back of Matt's neck and fling him away like he was nothing before he took his seat, "Hey dahlin, having fun?" he breathed.

Lynn swallowed hard as she studied the throne room, her gaze sweeping across the bodies of demons before they caught sight of the bodies of two men she had once loved, she stifled a noise before bringing her gaze to Caleb's face, waiting for him to speak.

Anna ran her tongue over her lips to savor the taste of Matt who now laid disoriented across the room before she sighed, leaning back in her seat, "I was," she breathed, crossing her arms under her boobies, "What do you want?"

Caleb took a large sip from his glass before he looked over at Lynn, a soft smile curving his lips, "Hey, baby," he breathed, holding his bloody hand out for her.

Kiran bit his lip as his dark gaze moved over her pretty face, "Just wanted to stop you from making a stupid mistake all over again." he muttered.

Lynn bit her lip hard but she moved to take his hand, "You know about my baby?" she mumbled, figuring the answer all ready but wanting to hear it.

Anna bit her bottom lip in a playful manner as she draped her leg over his knee, "You've killed today," she breathed, curiously studying his face, "Did you need to get some of that bottled up anger out?"

Caleb nodded slightly as he pulled her into his lap, "Yeah," he breathed, studying her pretty face.

Kiran grinned crookedly, "Something like that." he muttered, "You should have seen my father's face when I nearly decapitated him, you would have liked it."

Lynn studied his face, "I won't let you kill it." she said softly, something wary about her pretty eyes.

Anna's lips curved up in a soft smile now as she leaned in to bite his earlobe, "I'd rather fuck him than see him dead, darlin'," she breathed into his ear.

"I don't want to kill it," Caleb breathed, running his fingers up her thigh as he held her gaze.

Kiran smirked, "Liar." he breathed, leaning back in his seat, stretching his long legs out in front of him.

Lynn felt a shudder pass up her spine as she studied his gaze, "What do you want?" she muttered.

"No," Anna breathed, smiling softly still as she cocked her head a bit to the side again, "You'll have to excuse me, I think my date is bleeding," she muttered, starting to get out of the booth.

Caleb gave a slight shrug, "I want you to be happy," he breathed, moving his hand up her inner thigh now.

Lynn grabbed his hand gently and moved it away from her thighs, "I don't think you could make me happy right now, Caleb." she said softly, turning her face away from his to look out onto the floor again.

"Cause we killed two of the men who broke your heart?" Caleb muttered, raising a brow at her as he followed her gaze, "Tragic loss, I know."

Lynn swallowed hard, "No, you killed two men who fathered my children, who once I loved." she breathed, her eyes burning, "One I still know I loved," she mumbled, not looking at him still.

Kiran snickered but he didn't say anything as he watched, "It could be worse, your date could be dead."

Caleb sighed before he took another sip from his drink, "To be quite fair, Kiran killed William," he muttered, giving a slight shrug, "Is there anything I can do?"

Anna rolled her eyes, walking away from him for a moment before she turned; her 9. now in her hand and aimed directly at him, "It could be worse," she breathed, lowering it a bit before she fired a bullet dangerously close to his heart, but an absolutely non-lethal shot, like he'd taught her himself. She grinned widely at him, "You could be dead," she said, turning around to go get Matthew and get the hell outta dodge.

Lynn swallowed against the lump of her heart in her throat as she blinked back her tears, "Take me to a safe house, somewhere, I don't care, you can send him," she nodded to Aiden, "To guard me, I'm not always on top of my game when I'm pregnant, and then you can check up on me, if you want, but no sex, not for a little while." she muttered, turning to meet his gaze now.

Kiran blinked slowly as he looked down at his chest, red pooling through his white t-shirt as pain rattled through his body but he managed to get to his feet before he stumbled over, hitting the ground as he began to lose blood.

Caleb met her gaze now, studying her in silence for a moment before he nodded, "Alright," he breathed.

Anna pulled Matthew to his feet; a sigh escaping her lips before they started for the door. She didn't look over her shoulder, not even once, simply because she knew she wouldn't be able to leave if she saw him and this made her hurry outside to the Mercedes even faster.

Lynn let out her breath, "Thank you." she said softly, sliding out of lap, she bent her head to kiss him but stopped herself and simply turned to walk away from his throne.

Caleb said nothing to this, looking straight ahead at nothing as he continued to drink.
Aiden pursed his lips, but he said nothing either as he held his hand out for Lynn's, knowing exactly where to take her.

In a matter of few minutes, Adam Hawthorne appeared at the restaurant, having gotten an anonymous text about his father's location, and he frowned deeply when he saw him, "Dad," he breathed, moving towards him, "Dad, what the hell happened to you?"

Lynn slid her fingers into Aiden's as she looked back at Caleb for a moment but couldn't bring herself to say anything before she turned her gaze back to Aiden, giving a slight nod that she was ready.

Kiran made a noise, "Your mother." he grunted.

Aiden briefly raised his gaze to his friend; a worried line creasing his pretty forehead, but he didn't say anything either as he transported them to his own secured apartment in London.

Adam frowned even deeper at this, "Mom shot you?" he mumbled, shaking his head for a moment before he transported them to the nearest working hospital.

Lynn swallowed hard, "Will he be okay?" she mumbled, looking up at Aiden as soon as they were in London.

Aiden shook his head, slowly shaking his head, "He's pretty bad," he mumbled, starting through the apartment to the kitchen.

Lynnie began after him, clasping her fingers tight, "Why is he being like this? He locked Eliya out of Hell." she mumbled, biting her lip.

"He's paranoid," Aiden muttered, not looking back at her as he entered the open kitchen, "And he plans to start a partnership with the scientists. Extinct the human race and become King of Earth. Something like that."

... Dr. Ema Watson bit her lip as she made her way towards Adam Hawthorne with news of his father.

Lynn's face darkened, "He can't do that." she breathed, "Extincting the humans would kill all of us." she said, placing her hands against her abdomen.

Aiden gave another shrug, "He's not thinking straight anymore," he mumbled, grabbing a beer and a ginger ale from the fridge.

Adam bit his bottom lip as he continued banging his knuckles against each other; a worried look on his handsome face as he waited for the doctor to come get him.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Sun Sep 30, 2012 11:02 am

Lynnéa bit her lip, the worst case scenario playing through her pretty head before she shuddered, "He's gone mad, along with the rest of the goddamn world." she mumbled, running her fingers through her hair.

"Mr. Hawthorne?" Dr. Watson breathed, coming before him, "Your father is going to be okay, he's very lucky, another inch and it would have been his heart."

Aiden bit his bottom lip as he straightened and turned to face her, holding out the ginger ale for her to take, "Did you expect anything else from him?" he muttered, genuinely asking, "Caleb has always had a fragile mind, even though he would never admit it."

Adam sighed; the tension seeming to slip from his shoulders as he slowly stood, "Is he awake?"

Lynn thought for a moment as she took the Ginger ale, "I don't know, I expected..something different." she said sincerely, "That he would somehow be better than just another tyrant."

Dr. Watson gave a slight nod, "He keeps grumbling about an Anna and he had some..choice things to say about her."

Aiden gave another shrug of his shoulders as he unscrewed the cap of his beer, "Can't say I'm surprised."

Adam couldn't help the slight smile that curved his lips, "My mother," he breathed, giving a shrug before he nodded his thanks to the doctor and started for his father's room.

Lynn's gaze flickered to his face, "You don't seem to have very much faith in your friend." she said softly, taking a sip of Ginger ale and wishing it was beer as she gave a shrug much like the ones he seemed so fond of giving her, "But then again, you've probably known him long enough not to be disillusioned by him."

Kiran lay in his hospital bed still swearing Anna to all the depths of Hell for putting him there.

"Exactly," Aiden muttered, making a gesture to her with his beer, as if she was spot-on, "And I still love him as my brother."

Adam's smile widened when he entered his father's room; something warm about his face as he slid his hands into the pockets of his jeans, "What are you gonna do?"

Lynn bit her lip for a moment before taking a longer swig of Ginger ale, "I don't love him like that, I love him but not like that and not like Eliya loves him either." she shrugged, "You know, I don't want to talk about him anymore." she said, wrinkling her pretty nose, "Want to play strip poker?"

"Hunt her ass down and slap her." Kiran grumbled, glancing at his son as his lips twisted.

Aiden nearly choked on the beer he was swallowing before he raised his gaze to her face again, frowning some, "I'm supposed to be your bodyguard," he mumbled.

Adam bit his bottom lip, "You need an address?" he muttered, getting out his cell to find the anonymous text, that was obviously from his mother.

Lynn grinned almost crookedly at this, "And if you play your cards right, you'll be guarding my body." she breathed, her violet-silver eyes shimmering.

Kiran pursed his lips, "Actually, I have a better idea, I want you to find her, I want you to tell her I'm dead, you didn't get to me on time, make it convincing, you know?"

Aiden bit his bottom lip harder as he dropped his gaze again; his fingers drumming against his bottle almost nervously as he slid into a chair by the kitchen island, "That.. I.. I think it's a bad idea."

Adam raised a brow at his father, "What if she knows I'm lying?" he mumbled, "She is my mother, y'know."

The smile slid from Lynn's face, being physically rejected not something she dealt with almost ever, "Oh," she muttered, pursing her lips as she slid her ginger ale onto the counter and dropped her gaze to the floor.

Kiran made a face at him, "Have Cassy go with you, she can cry or something." he nodded.

Aiden frowned even more to himself as he briefly raised his gaze back to Lynn's face, "Please don't think I'm rejecting you," he mumbled, "You're beautiful, on any other occasion I'd have sex with you, but.. Caleb trusts me to take care of you, not to use you."

Adam's brow seemed to raise even higher at this, "That's stupid," he muttered, making a face at his father, "Fine, I'll get her to believe me; then what?"

Lynn's lips twisted, "You wouldn't be using me, you'd be saving me from sitting alone all night thinking of ways to kill myself." she muttered, not looking up at him again.

"Then leave the rest to me." Kiran muttered, nodding to himself, a wicked smile spreading across his lips.

Aiden sighed, but he didn't say anything as he took another sip from his beer and got up to leave the kitchen; frowning still as he began padding for his bedroom.

Adam nodded slightly, but he said nothing as he, within a few touches on his phone, had Matthew's address in London and he disappeared there to break the news to his mother.

Lynn frowned deeply to herself but she didn't say anything or call out to him as she moved into the living room and settled into the couch and her thoughts, not knowing where to go from there.

Kiran appeared hours later, letting his 'death' sink in, he stood over Anna's sleeping figure, studying every part of her as he shook his head, "Wake up, sunshine." he muttered.

"You have your own room, down the hall," Aiden called out to her, not looking back before he stepped into his room and left the door half-open, as if saying that his door was open if she needed him.

Anna made a low noise; her slightly pink cheeks still damp as she turned, her bare front facing him now, but she didn't open her eyes, still sound asleep on Matthew's silky sheets.

Lynn didn't bother to move, knowing there wasn't any point if she wouldn't be sleeping tonight, she brought her knees up to her chest, encircling them with her arms as she buried her face against them.

Kiran crouched beside the bed, reaching forward to touch her face gently, running his thumb along her lips as he started to hum.

Anna moistened her lips for a moment; the sound and feel of him having a shiver wash over her skin before she opened her pale eyes, blinking slowly as her gaze fixed on his face, "You're alive," she whispered, pulling the sheet up to cover her breasts as she watched his face.

Kiran smiled, "Much to your disappointment, I know." he muttered, his fingers slipping around her throat.

Anna swallowed hard, her fingers curling in the sheets as she slowly shut her eyes, "Please, don't," she breathed, opening her eyes to look up at him through her lashes, her light eyes sparkling with tears, "I didn't mean to.."

"Don't cry to me, Anna." Kiran muttered, squeezing her throat, "I gave you chances, not just one but multiple fucking chances to leave with me, to let me help you, instead you choose this dick over me, you choose Joseph over me too, and then you shoot me." he breathed.

The Morning...
Lynn's vision blurred together, she had made it to her new bedroom but still hadn't slept, it felt as small and lonely as she did. She swallowed hard, hating how much of her own self-pity was blooming in her chest, she hated to feel weak and she hated even more to feel helpless and less alive; she sighed, forcing herself to sit up and slide out of bed.

Anna's jaw tightened as she began to feel the burn in the bottom of her lungs, her pale gaze scrutinizing his face as she smirked, her toes curling under the sheets, "Maybe you should learn to take a hint," she breathed, almost inaudibly.

Aiden stood in his kitchen, dressed only in his slacks and not even caring to hide the scars littering his muscular back as he cooked for himself and Lynnie, plus some, in case the pregnant lady wanted more.

Kiran squeezed harder, knowing he'd leave bruises, he smirked, "Not worth it." he muttered, letting go and standing suddenly to walk away.

Lynn composed herself, taking a few deep breaths as she slipped into the bathroom first, splashing water onto her face, and finger-combing out her curls, ever beautiful. Lynnie took one last deep breath before she composed her pretty lips into a smile and stepped out of the bathroom, "Morning." she breathed as she sauntered towards the kitchen.

Anna took a deep breath as she sat up; something absolutely irritated about her pretty face as she breathed a laugh, "You're such a pussy," she breathed, slipping out of bed and wrapping the sheet around her, "You come here, say something badass and then gimme a little squeeze? No wonder I left you," she breathed, tightening her hold on her sheet.

Aiden briefly glanced over his shoulder at her, smiling softly, "Morning," he breathed, returning his gaze to the breakfast, "I hope you're hungry."

"You didn't leave me." Kiran muttered, not bothered by anything she said, "I'm letting you go, Eva." he breathed, using that other bitch's name to insinuate that's exactly who she was acting like.

Lynnie bit her lip hard, her gaze flitting over him as her fingers curled in the end of her blouse, the only thing she wore from last night because it was just long enough to cover all her prettier parts, "Starved." she breathed, propping herself up on the counter to drape one long leg over the other.

Anna simply stared at him; her slender shoulders dropping some as she sighed, gesturing to the door, "I never want to see your face again," she whispered, for once absolutely sincere when she said those words before she slid back onto the edge of the bed and buried her face in her hands.

Aiden glanced up at her again; his smile never wavering as he looked her over, "Good," he breathed, flipping the bacon on one pan before he moved on to the eggs.

Kiran didn't stop or look back as he disappeared into the night.

Lynn's gaze slipped over his back again, "Battle scars?" she inquired softly, a bit curious.

Aiden scoffed, his smile widening for a moment, "Not exactly, no," he breathed, becoming silent again as if she'd have to ask again to know.

Anna shut her eyes tight; so tight it physically hurt her and the pain soon spread to her chest, making her nauseous before Matthew stood in the entryway, "Did he hurt you?" he mumbled, moving towards her and getting onto his knees, not even waiting for her to answer him before he grabbed her jaw, lifting her pretty face a little to look at the oncoming bruising on her throat, "I'll take care of him, baby," he breathed, this finally having Anna open her eyes to look at him, slowly shaking her head, "No, we're done. It's like it never happened," she whispered, "Like we never knew each other."

Lynn raised a brow, "What are they?" she mumbled, more curious now.

Aiden pursed his lips, his gaze only on the food as he took a breath, "My father died when I was six and my mother became a junkie," he muttered, "When I was eight or so, she died of an overdose and I basically lived in and out of the poorhouse." he gave a slight shrug of his shoulders, "One day, I was coming back from my job at the pharmacy and some of the older boys from the poorhouse saw me. To this day, I'm not exactly sure why, but they threw me on the ground on a street in London, threw bricks at me and basically cut my entire back open," he said, briefly glancing up at her for her reaction as he gave another shrug.

Lynn blinked slowly, "That's awful." she breathed, her lips pulling into a frown as she imagined a small curly haired child being stoned in the streets of London, she swallowed hard, "And there was no one to take care of you?" she mumbled, shaking her head.

Aiden slowly shook his head, "If you were a scrawny orphan back then, you were on your own," he mumbled, taking the pans off the heat as he gestured for her to grab a plate.

Lynn slid off the counter to grab two plates, "That's still awful." she mumbled, holding out the plates for him, pursing her lips for a moment, "Back then, how far back is it?"

Aiden pursed his lips; his eyes narrowing some as he thought this over for a moment, "Well, I was born in nineteen-thirty-one, so, it must have been right before the forties."

Lynn blinked up at him, "You're almost twenty years older than me." she breathed, a sly grin curving her lips, "You're an old man."

Aiden couldn't help it when he breathed a laugh, "Then you're an elderly woman, miss Scarlett," he breathed, turning to put food on their plates now.

Lynn rolled her eyes, "Maybe but I'm still not as old as you." she said, a playful hint in her tone now, "How did you meet Caleb then?" she muttered after a moment.

Aiden's gaze seemed to soften a bit as he took the plates and placed them on the kitchen isle, "In nineteen-seventythree, we met at a poker match," he muttered, rolling his eyes at the thought, "Caleb was fresh eighteen, still human and thinking he owned the entire world." he smiled, "He got his ass handed to him that night, and he couldn't pay the winner the money he owed him. They were going to kill him, so I killed them first."

.. Six months later - London ..
Anna Thomas stepped out of the office building for the second time that day; a sigh escaping her plump lips before she reached up to ruffle her hair and began down the street to find herself a taxi, her Christian Louboutins clicking against the pavement as she for the first time in months genuinely smiled; looking beautiful dressed in a black, strapless pencil dress underneath her leather jacket, showing off those long legs of hers as she stuck her hand out towards the street to get the attention of the taxis.

Lynn couldn't help but grin at this she imagined this, "You saved him." she said softly, studying Aiden, "You're a good guy, aren't you?" she mumbled.

Kiran roared his black Charger up to the curve in front of her, he leaned across the seat, rolling down the window, "Get in." he breathed.

Aiden gave a slight shrug, "I try to be," he muttered, glancing up at her as he sat down, "You make it sound like some sort of rarity."

Anna took a step back from the curb, a frown curving her plump lips, "You've got to be kidding me," she mumbled, raising a perfect brow at him before she began back down the street, calling for a taxi again.

Lynn sat down as well, "In my line of work, it is." she said softly, dipping her gaze as she began to eat.

Kiran jerked his car, swinging around to pulling his car in front of her on the sidewalk, rolling down his own window, "Get in before I make you." he said, absolutely serious.

Aiden nodded slightly, "And what's your line of work, if you don't mind me asking?" he muttered, digging into his food as well.

Anna sighed, watching him for a moment before she glanced around them to see the people littering the streets staring at them before she moved around the car, getting in and slamming the door without a word.

Lynn smiled a bit crookedly, "I kill people for a living." she breathed, her gaze flickering up to meet his, "I run, or rather I ran, a company of highly skilled assassins."

"Don't slam the door, you'll wake Aidan." Kiran muttered, cutting her a glare as he nodded towards their son in the back, a sleeping toddler.

Aiden studied her gaze for a moment; his smile becoming a bit crooked, "Nice," he breathed, grinning wider.

Anna studied Kiran's gaze for a moment before she looked behind them; something almost like disbelief in her light eyes as she simply stared at the toddler in silence; a sweet smile starting to curve her lips as she moved around in the seat, reaching out to run her fingers over their son's hair.

Lynn grinned wider at this, "You don't find that intimidating?" she breathed, raising a brow at him before she gave a slight shrug, "William was always jealous of what I could do, he made me quit once just to stay home and mother our children." she mumbled, wrinkling her nose a little at this.

Kiran bit his lip as he pulled off the sidewalk, "He was with Judas." he muttered, glancing up at her.

Aiden gave another shrug of his shoulders, "I think, if a woman has a talent for something, even if that thing is killing, she should do it," he muttered, nodding a bit.

Anna didn't look at him still; her smile starting to fade as she continued studying every inch of the child, as if making sure if he was actually there before she sighed, "How did you get him?"

Lynn bit her lip hard, a dark look coming into violet-silver eyes as she studied his face as if at any moment she could jump across the table and do the naughtiest things to him, "There are a lot of things I'm good at." she breathed.

Kiran sighed, "Being the King of Hell's right hand has it's perks, I hunted him down, raised a lot of literal Hell, and Judas seemed to give in." he muttered, "Almost too easily."

Aiden grinned again, but he didn't say anything to this as he dropped his gaze back to his food; knowing exactly what she meant.

Anna sighed softly as she sat correctly in her seat again; tension start to leave her shoulders as she shrugged them, "So, where are you going?" she muttered, her gaze finally falling onto him again.

Lynn licked her lips as she finished eating, "I think I could use a shower." she breathed, standing up from the table as she began to unbutton her blouse, she turned to sashay from the table, glancing back at him as she dropped her blouse to the floor and disappeared down the hallway.

"To my apartment, it's almost time for Aidan's lunch." Kiran muttered, "I wanted him to get to know his mother too, you know?"

Aiden bit his bottom lip, but he said nothing as he returned to eating his breakfast; shaking his head at Lynnie as he did.

Anna nodded slightly as she glanced down at her wristwatch, "I have an hour," she muttered, glancing over at him again.

Kiran rolled his eyes, "I guess that'll be enough." he muttered, turning off the main road.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Sun Sep 30, 2012 1:47 pm

Anna raised a brow at him, "Are you just gonna keep him at your apartment?" she muttered, "Aren't you working?"

"I took time off." Kiran muttered, glancing back at Aidan, "I didn't get to really raise the other ones except for Kira, I want to spend as much time as I can with him." he said softly.

"Then stop driving like a psychopath," Anna muttered, crossing her arms over her chest as she narrowed her eyes a little at him.

Kiran rolled his eyes, "The only time I would have crashed is if I had crashed into you." he muttered, making a face at her.

"You would have liked that, huh?" Anna breathed, raising a brow at him again.

"You have no idea." Kiran breathed, grinning crookedly at her as he pushed the car harder, "How have you been anyways?"

Anna scoffed, a weary sort of smile curving her lips as she shook her head, "We don't need to play the politeness game, Kiran," she breathed, not looking at him anymore, "I'm just seeing Aidan for an hour, then I'm leaving. How I've been is irrelevant."

Kiran gave a shrug of his shoulders, "I suppose." he muttered as more of the city came into view and he turned into a parking garage.

Lynnie stepped out of the shower, a towel wrapped her as she padded into the hallway, "Aiden?" she called, her inky dark curls dripping down her back, "You don't happen to have anything I could wear, do you?"

Anna became silent again, tightening her arms around herself as her gaze slid to the rearview mirror for her to look at her little boy.

"There should be clothes in your room," Aiden called back as he dried the plates they had used and put them back in the cabinet.

Kiran pulled into a spot and cut the engine, "Do you want to grab him?" he muttered, pushing open his door.

Lynn smiled to herself, "Good man." she breathed before she slipped into her room, taking the time to look through her clothes before she slipped into a pair of jeans and a navy blue sweater, she stepped into a pair of ballet flats before turning to her reflection; Lynn ran her fingers through her curls a few times before slipping a hair band through it to push her bangs back but leave the rest flowing freely down her shoulders. She stepped out of her room once again to come into the kitchen, studying him for a moment as she bit her lip, "Can we go for a walk?" she breathed.

"Sure," Anna breathed, pushing open her door and stepping out before she opened the door to the backseat; carefully picking up Aidan and placing him on her hip.

Aiden glanced up at her, "A walk?" he muttered, pursing his lips, "I guess we could do that."

Kiran watched as the toddler cuddled up to her, laying his sleepy head on her shoulder, he couldn't help but smile softly as he shut his door and gestured to the elevator before starting towards it.

Lynnie smiled softly, "Could we do it every morning?" she mumbled, raising a brow, "I can't be cooped up in here when you won't even play strip poker with me." she breathed, something teasing about the way she said it.

Anna carefully held Aidan against her; her gaze on the ground now as she began after Kiran, deciding to be silent until spoken to.

Aiden nodded slightly, a soft smile curving his lips, "Sure, why not," he breathed as he started past her to get to his room, "Lemme get dressed."

Kiran pressed the button for the elevator, sliding into it as it opened, silent as well.

"I'll be waiting." she breathed, watching him go as she bit her lip hard.

Anna bit her bottom lip harder as she followed him into the elevator, automatically holding her breath as if this would put her heart in a normal rhythm, but it simply had it beat harder.

Aiden grinned to himself, "Keep it in your knickers, Lynnie," he called, not looking back at her as he slid into his room to dress.

"Why are you so nervous?" Kiran muttered, glancing down at her as he pressed the button for his floor.

Lynn grinned to herself but she didn't call back as she moved to sit on the couch and wait for him.

"I'm not nervous," Anna muttered quickly, for a moment raising her gaze to his face to half-glare at him.

"Your heart says otherwise." Kiran muttered, grinning down at her.

Anna's eyes narrowed as she kicked his shin with the golden, metallic tip of her stiletto, "Stop listening," she mumbled.

Kiran made a noise and took a step away from her, "Whatever." he muttered, his face darkening as he crossed his arms over his chest.

Anna released her breath now, while dropping back into silence as she seemed to relax more; briefly glancing at her wristwatch again before she held Aidan closer to her.

In a matter of a minute, Aiden returned from his room, now dressed in an army-colored, long-sleeved t-shirt, dark jeans and black Timberlands; a soft smile playing on his lips, "You ready to go, sweetheart?"

Kiran was silent as the doors slid open on his penthouse apartment, he stepped inside, smiling again as soon as Jason Hawthorne stepped out into view.

Lynn slid to her feet, her gaze moving over him before she brought it to his face, "I'm ready." she breathed, smiling softly as she offered him her arm.

Anna raised her gaze, a warm smile curving her lips as soon as she saw Jason, "Jase," she breathed, stepping out of the elevator as she moved to hug her not-so-little boy, careful of the toddler on her hip.

Aiden grinned as he took her arm, "Milady," he breathed, shutting his eyes as he had thought of a specific place to bring her to, and in a matter of moments, they appeared in St. James' Park.

Jason wrapped an around around his mother, "Hey mama." he breathed, kissing the top of her head.

Lynn blinked slowly as she glanced around, "It's been a while since I've been here." she said softly, an even softer smile curving her lips.

Anna made a sweet noise, giving her boy a gentle squeeze before she pulled back to look up at him, "When did you come back?" she breathed, her smile not wavering the slightest.

"You've been here before?" Aiden breathed, looking almost disappointed now as he glanced around the empty park.

Jason thought for a moment, "A day or two ago, did you miss me?" he breathed, grinning down at her.

Lynn turned to face him, "Once, years ago, so many that I've forgotten nearly everything about this place so you'll have to show me around." she nodded, tilting her head to the side as a sweet smile lit her pretty face.

Anna nodded slightly, "Of course, baby," she said softly, biting her bottom lip as she held Aidan out to him, "Will you hold your little brother for a moment? I need to speak with your father."

Aiden couldn't help it when he smiled again; sliding his fingers into hers as he gestured to the path ahead of them, starting down the gravel.
Jason nodded slightly, taking his little brother from her as Kiran raised a brow, "What are we talking about?" he mumbled.

Lynn smiled to herself as she walked along with him, "Can I ask you something else?" she mumbled, not waiting for an answer as she went on, "If you and Caleb have been friends for so long why are we just meeting now?" she inquired.

Anna didn't answer him as she reached out to take his hand and start for one of the rooms; silent until she had dragged him inside and she shut the door, leaning against it, "I have a proposition."

Aiden bit his bottom lip, "Caleb and I drifted apart for a long time," he muttered, "After he met Evangeline and Isaac, he began prioritizing money and power over anything else."

Kiran arched a brow, "Oh, really?" he muttered, his gaze moving over her, "And what is that?" he breathed.

Lynn frowned a bit at this, "Money and power aren't everything, he choose the wrong friends." she muttered, studying his face, "What do you prioritize first?"

Anna raised a brow at him before she pushed away from the door and moved towards him, curling her fingers in his waistband, "I want something from you and you can't say no," she breathed, meeting his gaze.

Aiden pursed his lips, "Honesty.. life," he muttered, "I'd like to get as much out of my life as I can, no matter how long it is."

Kiran arched his other brow, "Talk to me, dahlin, tell me all I can give you." he breathed, giving her his sexiest crooked smile.

Lynn nodded slowly, "Sounds like a good philosophy." she said softly, "All I think I want is to be happy and for my children to be happy." she mumbled, nodding to herself.

Anna smiled playfully at him as she moved her hand to grasp him through his pants, glancing between them as she bit her lip, "I want you.." she breathed, in her huskiest voice possible before she raised her gaze to his face and let go of him, "To give Aidan to me."

"Sounds like a sweet philosophy for an assassin," Aiden breathed, smiling to himself.

Kiran sighed, his smile hardly wavering, "I figured as much but why, you'd always be working?" he muttered, cocking his head a bit.

Lynn smirked, "I know, I'm a mercenary with a heart of gold." she breathed, grinning up at him, "So, old man, why haven't you found some lovely woman to live your life with?" she mumbled.

Anna slowly shook her head, "I'd work less," she breathed, "Even get him an expensive babysitter on the days I can't be there with him," she muttered, cocking her pretty head a bit to the side, "Please? You can visit him as much as you like."

Aiden gave a slight shrug of his shoulders as he glanced over at her again, "I don't really believe in love."

Kiran pursed his lips, "Why do you want to take him from me?" he breathed, becoming so serious now.

Lynn blinked slowly, "Why not?" she inquired softly.

Anna took a small step away from him as she studied his eyes closely, sighing softly, "Because I'm his mother," she said softly, "And you're.. not fitted to take care of a toddler by yourself, especially not in your condition, not to mention that you kill people for a living and you'd probably forget changing him while screwing one of your whores on the kitchen counter that you make his food on," she muttered, raising a brow at him, "Are you following any of this?"

Aiden gave a slight shrug of his shoulders, "I can't imagine sticking with one single person for the rest of my life, when I have so many to choose from, so many experiences and different people to explore," he muttered, running his fingers over his curls, "It might sound selfish, but I think it's better like that. No one gets hurt."

Kiran raised his brow, "Are fucking kidding me? Do you know how many times you've left our children to disappear off to another country because you were angry with me? How many times you've forgotten to mention them or even think about them while you were off spreading your legs for another man?" he said, something like rage twisting his handsome features as he glared down at her, "How are you a fucking better parent than I am? Fuck you, I try to do something nice and let you see him, surprise you with Jason and you wanna be like this to me? Fuck you, Anna." he muttered, pushing past her to leave the room.

Lynn pursed her lips tight, "I think I just realized why you and Caleb are best friends." she muttered, turning her gaze straight ahead.

Anna made a noise, "Hold on," she said, grabbing his wrist to keep him from leaving as she looked up at him, "You see what's happening right now? This is exactly why I'm doing this; I'm trying to do what's best for my son, because you're acting like this. You're a big child trying to take care of a baby; what the hell is wrong with you?" she breathed, something so serious about her face as her lips twisted, "I know I made mistakes in the past, but this is me making up for it. You're still the same asshole as you've always been."

"That's not fair," Aiden muttered, letting go of her hand as he studied her face closely, "So because I'm not looking for love and living my life as I please, suddenly I'm a manwhore like Caleb?" he breathed, raising a brow at her.

Kiran raised a brow at her, "I'm sorry to burst your bubble but you've changed about just as much as I have." he breathed, his eyes darkening, "When was the last time you called the kids again? Or even saw them?"

Lynn stopped walking to stand in front of him, "If you honestly think no one's getting hurt than yes, I think you're as bad as Caleb." she muttered, "You may not believe in love but I'm sure some foolish woman out there must and she'd be just about as damned as falling in love with you than she would be falling in love with Caleb," she felt her eyes burn a little, "If in the end you're just going to leave..." she shook her head, "That hurts the worst, you know?" she muttered, her voice getting lower, "When they leave."

Anna arched a brow at him again, "As a matter of fact, I talk to them once a week," she breathed, shaking her head at him, "You know what? This was a mistake," she breathed, sighing as she turned and grabbed the handle to leave the room.

Aiden bit his bottom lip, "I guess I just don't see it that way," he muttered, watching her face.

Kiran's jaw clenched but he didn't bother to follow her, "I guess it was." he muttered, more to himself than anything.

Lynn took a breath, giving a shrug of her slender shoulders, "I wish I didn't either." she muttered, "Honestly, I do. And once upon a time, I used to, but it's hard going back when you fall in love." she breathed, composing herself again, "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to get so emotional on you, I've had a bad week." she said, wrinkling her nose.

Anna swallowed hard as she left the room, moving towards Jason to get on her toes and kiss his cheek, "I'm sorry, honey, but I can't do this," she breathed, kissing Aidan's forehead before she began for the stairs, her light eyes burning.

Aiden smiled a bit at this, "Don't worry about it darling," he breathed, holding his hands out for hers again, "Have you had enough fresh air for today?"

Lynn took his hands, nodding slightly, "I think so." she breathed, biting her lip before she managed a smile for him.

Aiden smiled softly at her, but he said nothing as he shut his eyes and brought them back home.

Anna hurried down the stairs, nearly falling on her ass a few times before she made her way onto the street; her pretty eyes now wet with tears before she slid into the Mercedes that was waiting for her in front of Kiran's building. She said nothing as she slammed the door to the back of it and buried her face in her hands as the driver took off.

Lynn bit her lip as she pulled her hands back, "I think I keep making an ass of myself in front of you." she muttered, looking up at him, "I'm not usually like this and to make it up to you, since I've been the one asking all the personal questions, if you ask anything of me, I promise to answer as honestly as I can." she said softly.

Eliya St. Claire slipped inside Anna's office building, the young woman looked so beautiful in her tight silver Herve Leger dress, her inky black curls spilling in perfect waves around her face as she moved towards the receptionist, her Louboutins clicking against the floor, "Hi, I'm looking for Anna Thomas." she breathed, putting on her most polite smile.

Aiden gave a slight nod; his smile not seeming to waver at all when he bent his head to kiss her cheek, "Thank you," he breathed, starting for his room.

The receptionist looked over Eliya for a moment before mentally deciding to let her through, smiling politely, "She's on the first floor, her name is on the door," she said softly, holding out a guest pass for Eliya to wear before she gestured to the elevator.
Anna sighed, shutting her eyes for a moment as she dumped two, little pink pills into her palm and threw them back; swallowing them down with a iced glass of vodka before she turned her attention back to her computer screen, draping her leg over her knee as a shiver wrapped around her spine.

Eliya nodded her thanks before she pressed the guest pass over her heart and started for the elevator, she bit her lip, thinking of how much she'd missed her best friend as she pressed the button for the first floor, tapping the toe of her left Louboutin against the floor, almost impatient to see her.

Anna glanced down at the phone on her desk when the receptionist announced that a woman would be coming upstairs and she sighed, nodding slightly as she got out of her chair and began for the door to greet her guest.

London - Six months later..
Aiden yawned in the cutest way; rubbing the top of his curly head before he put the plates of bacon, eggs, pancakes and fruit on the table, along with orange juice and water, figuring he should be making healthy food for his pregnant roomie.
A soft smile curved his lips as he sat down across from her and poured both of them juice, "I hope it's yummy, love."

Eliya smiled to herself as she finally stepped off the elevator and began towards Anna's office door, running her fingers over her hair once or twice, always wanting to look perfect.

Lynn smiled sleepily up at him, "It usually is." she breathed, rubbing her rather large, swollen tummy, the baby having grown at a more supernatural rate than her all of her previous pregnancies, as she took a piece of bacon from the plate and bit into it.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Sun Sep 30, 2012 2:00 pm

Anna pulled open her office door; the weary look on her otherwise beautiful face immediately lighting up when she saw her best friend and she smiled brightly, "Ellie," she breathed, holding her arms out for her.

Aiden took a piece of cantaloupe and bit into it, using his free hand to rub the top of his head as he stared straight ahead sleepily, not really at anything.

Eliya moved into her best friend's arms, wrapping her own tight around her, "You have no idea how much I've missed you." she breathed, squeezing her.

Lynn studied his face for a moment as she bit her into her bacon again, she swallowed it down with orange juice before she opened her mouth to say something when there was an agonizing pain in her abdomen, "Oh." she grunted, looking down at her belly as she clenched the table edge.

Anna shut her eyes as she wrapped her arms around her best friend, "You too, baby," she breathed, kissing the top of her head as she squeezed her a bit tighter for a moment before pulling back a little to look down at her, "What are you doing in London?" she breathed, smiling warmly at her.

Aiden blinked slowly as he dropped his gaze to Lynnie's belly, "What is it?" he mumbled.

Eliya grinned, "I had a friend hunt you down," she breathed, giving a slight shrug, "I figure, I'm single and I need my best friend to go out with me, you know? So here I am."

Lynn felt the pain disappear and she began to sit up again, "It felt like---" Pain cut her off again, ripping through her lower back and making her clutch the table with both hands, "I think I need a hospital." she said, gnashing her teeth tight together.

"Sounds perfect," Anna muttered, running her fingers over her hair as she glanced down at her wristwatch, "You know what, I need to burn my brains out tonight, what do you say we go clubbing downtown?"

Aiden jumped out of his chair, tipping it over as a panicky look came into his chocolatey eyes, but he said nothing, simply moving towards Lynnie and wrapping his fingers around her wrist before he transported them to the hospital.

A few hours of labor later...
Lynn panted, sweat dripping off her pretty brow as she loosened her iron grip on Aiden's hand, a sleepy smile lighting her face as the nurse held her little boy out to her, "He's so beautiful." she breathed out, her eyes stinging with tears as the nurse settled him in her arms.

The Club...
Eliya felt the music pulse through her chest as she held one drink in her hand and moved with Anna out on the dance floor, letting all her trouble slip away until she saw one of them enter the club; Drake Hawthorne was a gorgeous son of a bitch in a leather jacket and dark jeans, "Anna, look." she mumbled, nodding behind her to their ex.

Aiden rubbed his hand a bit, but he didn't show any signs of pain as he simply watched them, "Yeah, he is," he breathed, seating himself next to Lynn's bed.

Anna opened her mouth to comment on this as she followed Eliya's gaze, but she didn't get to before Christian Walker slid his arms around Eliya's waist, "How are you doing, baby?" he breathed into her hair, a wicked grin curving his lips.
Anna couldn't help but smile at this, but she said nothing to them as she started through the crowd towards Drake, immediately curling her fingers in his shirt and jerking him downwards into a sweet kiss when she reached him; still tasting a mix of tequila and strawberry lipgloss on her own lips.

Lynn held the little thing close to her and even though she almost knew she shouldn't, she felt warmth blossoming inside her chest, "Lucien Norratov." she breathed, kissing his little head, "I don't care what anyone says, you're mine." she mumbled.

Eliya felt a shiver crawl up her spine as she tilted her head back, "I'm good." Eliya mumbled, "But I would be so much better if you kissed me." she breathed, her mismatched eyes shimmering.
Drake made a noise, not expecting this, but not caring so much as he reached around to grab her ass and kiss her deeply, "Hi baby." he breathed against her lips.

Aiden bit his lip, but he didn't say anything as he watched them curiously.

Christian grinned, bending his pretty head to kiss her deeply; his fingers digging into her hips.
Anna smiled against his mouth, "Hey," she breathed, biting his bottom lip for a moment as she slid her fingers down his abdomen to grasp him through his jeans.

Lynn held him for a few moments longer before a nurse came to collect him for a proper check-up, the woman smiled to herself before she tilted her head to look down at Aiden, "Thank you for staying with me." she said softly, her eyes full of warmth still.

Eliya reached up to curl her fingers in his hair and kiss him back hard, thoroughly enjoying herself.
Drake raised a brow, "Miss me or just really drunk?" he breathed, feeling himself start to stiffen.

Aiden's smile widened some as he met her gaze and he nodded slightly, "Of course," he breathed, "I wouldn't leave a screaming woman to herself, love."

Christian made a sweet noise against her mouth as he kissed her harder; for a moment not feeling anyone else around them as he did.
"I missed you," Anna breathed, obviously also drunk as her plump lips pulled into a pouty face, "We should have sex in the bathroom."

Lynn smiled at this as she sat up, swinging her legs over the side of the bed, she stood, only to stoop down and steal a kiss from his mouth, "I mean it, thank you for staying with me, today, the last six months." she breathed, smiling softly as she straightened and turned to start towards the bathroom.

Eliya slid her tongue between his lips, her toes curling when she tasted him, "Oh, I missed you." she breathed against his lips, kissing him again as warmth started in her belly.
Drake raised another brow, "You're more drunk than you realize." he muttered, "Dance with me, first?"

Aiden smiled a bit wider at this, cocking his head a bit as he watched her go, "You have a nice backside for a woman who's just given birth, you know that?" he called after her, grinning widely.

Christian slid his tongue against hers before he lifted her, not caring where the hell they were as he wrapped her legs around his waist.
Anna cocked her pretty head a bit to the side as she slid her arms around his neck, "I'd love to," she breathed, her light eyes shimmering as she studied his eyes.

Lynn stopped in the entryway of the bathroom to glance over her shoulder at him, her pretty violet-silver eyes shimmering, "I know." she breathed, a wicked smile sliding across her lips, "And you could always see more of it if you wanted to." she muttered, sliding her gaze over him before she moved into the bathroom and shut the door only part way.

Eliya curled her fingers tighter in his hair as she made sweet noises, trying to rub her body closer to his, almost aching to feel him.
Drake grinned crookedly as he put an arm around her waist and led her out onto the dance floor.

Aiden grinned still, even though he felt as if he'd said too much dirty-talk already as he leaned back in his seat; playing with the golden ring with a shockingly large, square black diamond on his finger.

Christian made a sweet noise against her mouth as he pressed her tighter against him, slowly turning them to steer them towards the bathrooms.
Anna smiled softly at him, but she said nothing when they reached the floor and she rolled onto the plateau of her stilettos and kissed his mouth again, realizing how much she'd actually missed the taste of him as she shivered and turned her back on him, pressing her backside against him as she began to grind her hips.

Eliya bit his bottom lip before she moved her head to kiss his neck, breathing very dirty things to him.
Drake shivered, laying his hands on her hips, feeling himself harden almost painful as he bit his lip hard, "You're the devil in a dress, dahlin, I swear." he breathed.

Christian bit his bottom lip hard enough to make it bleed as he carried her towards the bathrooms, luckily finding an empty stall inside, that he stepped into; shutting the door before he pressed her up against the wall and bent his head to nibble on her neck.
Anna moistened her lips as she glanced up at him, "Maybe it's time for you to see what I can do without the dress, baby," she breathed, her lips forming into a teasing grin as she continued moving her hips to tease him.

Eliya shuddered, her hands reaching between them to get his slacks undone before she grasped him...
"No, I think you should keep it on." Kiran Hawthorne muttered as he appeared beside his older brother, a smirk forming on his lips, "I need a drink, you want one?" he breathed, waiting for his bro to nod before he started for the bar.

Adele cradled baby Lucien close to her chest, her pretty jade eyes swimming in black as she walked past the babies' ward and towards the main fire escape staircase where the demon, Azazel, waited for his son.

.. Christian's jaw tightened; a wave of ecstasy washing over him as he continued moving against her, slamming into her a last time before he groaned her name, bending his head to kiss her hard again.
Anna frowned a bit at this as she tilted her head back against Drake's shoulder to look up at him, "Please, tell me you're gonna ignore whatever he thinks," she muttered, running her fingers down his arm to slide them between his.

Eliya gasped, tightening around him as pleasure rushed through her abdomen and she dug her nails into his shoulders.
Drake shrugged, "Probably, he's only my brother." he muttered, "But I do really want that drink." he breathed, looking down at her.

"I missed you," Christian breathed, panting slightly as he grinned against her lips.
Anna couldn't help but smile at this as she continued grinding her hips against him, tilting her head back even more as she gestured for him to kiss her.

Eliya hugged him to her, "I missed you too." she breathed, rubbing her nose against his.
Drake kissed her gently, "I'll be right back." he muttered before he turned to head towards the bar after his brother.

Lynn finished her shower, not surprised he hadn't joined her, she sighed to herself even though a smile was beginning to grace her lips as she dressed in jeans and a simple t-shirt, letting her curls drip down her back as she pulled open the door, leaning in the entry way again, "I was thinking---" she started when something cold felt like it had dropped in her chest and she looked up, suddenly distant, "Something's wrong." she muttered, straightening.

Christian grinned even wider at her, but he said nothing, simply enjoying that he was with her.
Anna scrunched up her nose, but she didn't say anything as she reached out, grabbing a shot of Patron from a waitress before she started for the exit, downing the tequila before she slid past the bouncer and outside to get some fresh air.

Aiden looked up at her again, frowning a bit, "What is it?

Eliya studied his pretty face, "Come home with me, Chris." she said softly, resting her head against his forehead.

Lynn shook her head, "The baby..." she began out of the room, her gaze moving over everything as she searched for the nurse who'd taken Lucien before making it to the ward, she stared into the glass, looking for his little form, her heart sinking into the pit of her stomach when she realized he was gone, "No.." she mumbled, her eyes burning.

Christian studied her closely now, raising his hand to run his thumb over her lips, "Are you sure?" he breathed.

Aiden followed quickly behind her; the look on her face saying more than words as Aiden swallowed hard, "Do you want me to call Caleb?" he breathed, knowing his friend would probably find a way to get the child back.

Eliya ran her fingers over his hair as she nodded, "I want you to stay with me." she breathed, kissing his thumb, "Don't you want to?"

Lynn reached up to curl her fingers into her hair as she nodded slowly, her gaze still on the glass.

Christian nodded slightly, "Let's go right now," he breathed, a soft smile curving his lips.
Anna ran her fingers over her hair as she'd made her way to what she remembered to be Drake's car and she slid onto the hood of it, draping her leg over her knee as she waited, leaning back on her palms.

Aiden sighed, but he said nothing else to her as he slid his cell out of his pocket and sent a text to a very long number; then he waited.

Eliya grinned, "Really?" she breathed, kissing him hard, "Mm, let's go." she said, hugging him tighter, not wanting to let go one bit.

Lynn felt her lips trembling, "Who the fuck could have taken him?" she mumbled, shaking her head as her arms dropped to her sides, her heart clawing it's way into her throat.

Christian smiled against her mouth, but he didn't say anything as he shut his eyes, hugging her tighter before he transported them to the palace.

Aiden bit his lip, "What about those people who took you?" he mumbled, trying to remember the name William had said before he pursed his lips, "Azazel."

Eliya smiled to herself, burying her face against his neck, "I don't want to be let go for a long time." she mumbled, snuggling against him.

Lynn's eyes darkened as the idea dawned on her, "I'll kill him." she breathed, her teeth gritting as she ran her fingers through her hair.

Drake made his way outside to his car, he smiled to himself, cocking his head at Anna, "Waiting for me?" he breathed.

"I can arrange that," Christian breathed, hugging her tight to him as he glanced around the place, "Where's your bedroom?"

Aiden ran his fingers over his curls, "You should go back to your room, lie down and chill for a little while," he mumbled, "Caleb will be here soon."

Anna cocked her pretty head a bit to the side to look him over, biting her bottom lip, "Who else?" she breathed, holding her hand out for his.

Eliya pointed towards the stairs, "The large bedroom on the right." she mumbled, smiling to herself.

Lynn brought her gaze to his face, "Come with me?" she breathed, holding her hand out for his.

Drake took her hand, a crookedness coming across his smile, "Are you sure you want this?" he muttered.

Christian nodded slightly, but he didn't say anything as he began up the stairs; pursing his lips when he finally find the room and pushed open the door to let them in.

Aiden nodded slightly; a soft smile curving his lips as he took her hand and started back towards the room.

Anna nodded slightly, "Don't you?" she breathed, meeting his gaze as she steered him between her legs.

Lynnie squeezed his fingers, genuinely glad he was there, she bit her lip, taking the lead as she pulled him into her room, still holding his hand as she tugged him towards the bed, "I just want to lay with someone." she mumbled, glancing up at him.

Drake arched his brow higher, "Yeah but out in a parking lot? I thought you had more class." he muttered, "At least a bathroom is a little more private."

Aiden's dark eyes narrowed a bit at this as he looked her over, "Okay," he mumbled, giving a slight nod, "But you keep it in your pants, missus."

Anna rolled her eyes at him, "I was thinking we'd get in the car and go somewhere," she breathed, a smile curving her lips, "I thought you had more class."

Lynn smiled mirthlessly, "You've made it very clear how you feel about me and sex, I just need to be close to someone right now." she muttered, sliding under the covers and holding them open for him to slide in as well.

Drake rolled his eyes, "Not much, I am a Hawthorne, after all." he muttered, "But I can't, I'm Kiran's ride." he breathed.

Aiden didn't say anything to this; merely sighing softly as he slid under the covers with her.

Anna dropped her hands back onto the hood of the car, moistening her lips as she scoffed, "Right," she breathed, meeting his gaze again for a moment, "Leave it to Kiran to get in the way of what I want."

Lynn bit her lip as she carefully slid her arms around him, pressing her face against his chest as she shut her eyes, breathing him in.

Drake rolled his eyes, "Yeah, it's all Kiran's fault." he muttered.

Aiden sighed softly, but he remained quiet as he slid his arms around her, gently kissing the top of her head.

Anna rolled her eyes at this, "Yeah, I'll see ya' later, Hawthorne," she breathed, pushing him away from her before she slid off the hood of the car and started for the black Mercedes SLR that Joseph had given her, parked close by.

Lynn hugged him tightly, feeling tears burn the backs of her eyelids but she didn't speak, letting the silence swallow them as they waited for Caleb.

In a matter of moments, Caleb Vladislav stood in the hospital room; a handsome fiend in all his devilish glory, dressed in a black Armani suit with black dress shoes and black Armani shirt. He cocked his head a bit to the side as he slid his hands into the pockets of his slacks, clearing his throat to get their attention.

Lynn pulled her head back from Aiden's chest, sniffling as she blinked up at Caleb, "You came." she mumbled, swallowing hard.

"Of course I came," Caleb muttered, a slight, almost genuine smile curving his lips, "How are you feeling, darling?"

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Sun Sep 30, 2012 2:21 pm

In a matter of twenty minutes, Anna was back in her apartment; a few buckets of ice cubes placed next to her tub that was filling with ice-cold water. She swallowed hard; reaching back to unzip her dress before she slid out of it; pulling on a white, oversized t-shirt as the only thing before she opened the medicine cabinet and tears already burned down her cheeks, making her skin feel paper thin beneath. She took a little orange bottle from one of the shelves, her hand trembling as she poured a large amount of small pills into her hand; not even allowing herself to think twice about what she was doing before she threw them back, swallowing and nearly choking on them without water.
She took a very deep breath; one that had her shudder before she grabbed the first of the three buckets; dumping the ice into the tub before she took the next, dropping the contents of this and the next one into the bath before she turned off the water, feeling her knees start to buckle already as she stepped into the tub; the cold sending painful tremors up her legs and through her entire body; this sensation intensifying by a hundred when she lowered herself into the water, gasping before she laid down completely and let her lids flutter with the insane cold. Now all she had to do was wait.

Lynn's lips twisted, "Like someone kidnapped my baby." she breathed, her throat getting tight as she slid her arms from around Aiden and sat up a little, she blinked back tears and tried to focus on Caleb's face, "Where have you been?" she mumbled.

Caleb studied her face for a moment before he gave a slight shrug of his shoulders, "It's not important," he muttered, obviously not willing to talk about himself with her as he sighed, "Do you know where Azazel is?"

Anna's lids fluttered as she grabbed a hold on the corners of the tub; her fingers slipping as her lips parted with a scream, but nothing came out, nothing but the sound of a choked up whimper as pain washed over her, having her lips twist in agony as blackness began to seep into her vision and she slammed her hand into the tiles on the wall, the icy pain unbearable and seemingly endless, forcing her to stay in the water as her limbs began to cramp and she cried out in the lowest possible manner.

Lynn shook her head slowly when the man she least wanted to see at that moment appeared in the door of her hospital room, "He's in Purgatory," William Hawthorne breathed.

Caleb met Aiden's gaze, giving a slight nod before Aiden disappeared out of the blue and Caleb glanced over his shoulder at William, "You really don't know how to stay dead," he breathed.

Lynn blinked slowly at the empty space in bed beside her before she brought her gaze to Caleb and then William, "What do you want in exchange for telling?" she muttered, trying to make herself as cold as iron.
William shook his head, "I don't want anything, Lynn, nothing but you." he whispered, something sincere about it as he seemed to ignore Caleb, "It's taken me nearly forty years but I love you, Lynn, and I mean that."

Caleb didn't say anything to this; something simply irritated about his handsome face as he turned his attention back on Lynn; his darkening eyes only on her.

Kiran felt something like his heart turning to lead and dropping into the pit of his stomach and he pushed himself away from the bar, not even waiting for Drake to say something or follow him as he disappeared to find Anna. The moment he found her broke his heart into pieces, he dropped to his knees beside the tub to pull her out.

Lynn frowned deeply up at William, shaking her head, "You can't have me, Will." she muttered as she slid out of bed, moving around it towards Caleb, "Are we going to find him?" she breathed, looking up at the King of Hell.

Anna didn't move at all; her lips were now a faint blue and her skin was cold as ice; the only the proving that she was alive being her dull heartbeat and her half-closed lids fluttering a little as she took small, inaudibly breaths.

Caleb gave another shrug of his shoulders, "Unless you want to finish this sweet little reunion first," he muttered, raising a brow at her; something absolutely cold in his eyes.

Kiran pulled her into his chest, he didn't care that she was wet or that was cold as he touched her face, his eyes burning, "It'll be okay." he whispered, his throat closing up as he poofed to the nearest hospital.

Lynn arched a brow back at him, her eyes becoming cold, "I think we're good, let's go." she muttered.

Two hour later..
Anna laid in her hospital bed, covered in warm blankets to make sure she wouldn't go into shock. She shuddered, waking fully now as she curled her fingers in one of the blankets, disoriented while she looked around the room before her gaze fell onto Kiran in the chair next to her bed, but she said nothing, simply looking at him quietly.

Caleb didn't say anything to this, or even look back at William before he grabbed Lynn's arm and transported them to Azazel's location in Purgatory.

Kiran raised his gaze to meet hers, his violet-silver eyes were wet with tears he didn't bother to hide, "I was so scared." he whispered, his throat closing up on his again.

Azazel sat on his black throne in Purgatory, bouncing Lucien Norratov on his knee, the baby he was now a toddler having started to age, he made little noises as he extended his arms as if he could reach out Lynn and take her, obviously not liking his father very much, "Isn't he beautiful, he could be everything we imagined." he muttered, glancing up at Caleb and Lynn.

Anna blinked a few times as she tilted onto her side, watching his face still as she moistened her lips, "Why?" she whispered, almost inaudibly, as if her throat was as dry as the Sahara.

Caleb pursed his lips; his black eyes moving over Azazel and the child as he sighed, "Hand over the kid, Azazel."

"I thought you were gonna die." Kiran mumbled, swallowing hard against the lump in his throat.

Azazel picked up the child, holding him out to the King of Hell, "Come take him." he said, dangling him over the edge of the dias.

Anna's brows pulled together at this as she continued to study his face, "I didnt expect you to care," she breathed, reaching up to rub her throat as her lips twisted and she shut her eyes, "I didnt want to be found."

Caleb took a step forward, his black gaze focusing on the child for a moment before he glanced back at Lynn; figuring she should make a decision about her bastard.

"Of course, I care." Kiran breathed, "Why do you think I've following you? I love you, Anna." he muttered, rubbing his face.

Lynn swallowed hard, taking a step forward when Azazel dropped the baby, Lynnie jerked suddenly, encircling the child in her arms and hugging him tight against her as Azazel disappeared, "Too easy, they'll come back." she breathed, kissing the top of Lucien's head.

Anna swallowed hard, this having her throat ache even worse as she held her hand out for a water bottle, "What are we gonna do about this?" she breathed, obviously ignoring his sweet words.

"I know," Caleb said, grabbing her arm again before he transported them back to the Throne Room.

"Do you love me at all?" Kiran breathed, studying her face.

Lynnie hugged her baby closer to her as he gaze swept over the Throne Room, "What do you suppose we do?" she mumbled, meaning her and the child.

Anna swallowed hard as she averted her gaze from his, "Yes," she whispered, "But I don't want to."

"Hide," Caleb said, his voice dropping into a deep husk as he began for his throne.

"Why not?" Kiran mumbled, his throat still aching.

Lynn swallowed hard as she nodded slowly, "Goodbye, Caleb." she breathed, turning to disappear.

Anna kept her eyes closed; tears already burning beneath her lids as her heart clenched in her chest, "Because I have nothing left to give you," she whispered, a few tears escaping down her cheeks, "I am.. so empty and it hurts."

Caleb didn't say anything to this; simply seating himself on his black throne again as his whore, Evangeline Hart appeared on the armrest of it; a wicked grin curving her lips as she watched Lynnéa leave.

Kiran studied her for long, "All I ever needed was you, Anna, that's all." he said softly, "You can let me help you, you can let me be with you, but that's your choice."

Anna slowly opened her eyes to look at him; this resulting in more tears rolling down her cheeks as she tried to sit up a little, "But why, Kiran?" she whispered, "What's the use when I can't even make you happy?"

"Because I love you and that's enough for me." Kiran whispered.

Anna swallowed hard as she averted her gaze again; silent for a very long moment before she nodded slowly, "Okay," she whispered, "But I want us to start over. Completely.. I need to know if we're actually good for each other."

Kiran nodded slowly, "What do you want me to do?" he breathed, his gaze never leaving her face.

"Take me home with you," Anna breathed, glancing up at him again.

Kiran nodded slowly, "You should stay here for the night, I'll stay with you and we'll leave in the morning." he said softly, biting his lip.

Anna bit her bottom lip as she nodded, leaning back against her pillow, "What am I going to tell Joseph?" she breathed, sounding genuinely concerned about this.

Kiran bit his lips, "Let me handle him." he breathed, giving her a reassuring smile, "It'll be okay." he muttered.

Anna bit her bottom lip harder, "You can't hurt him," she breathed, "I work for him, remember?"

"I think you need to find a better job, baby." Kiran muttered, his lips twisting.

Lilith Winchester appeared in Eliya's bedroom, she was disturbed in the least to see her daughter sleeping next to Christian Walker's much bigger form, "Eliya, we have to go." she said, waking her sleeping child.

Anna slowly shook her head, "I like it there," she breathed, "He helps people, y'know, I just never realized until now."

Caleb wrapped his fingers in Evangeline's hair as he pressed his lips against hers; kissing her deeply when the priest finished his little speech. As soon as they broke the kiss, they shared a look; a wicked grin forming their lips before Evangeline moved, ripping the heart out of the poor Father. It wasn't more than minutes before Caleb sat back on his newly made throne, made of bone and iron, and his Queen was on top of him, her long, black dress lifted a little so she could move her hips against him, whimpering the name of her King.

Eliya was dressed in seconds, quiet as not to disturb her sleeping man before she took her mother's hand and they disappeared into the Throne Room through a hole Lilith had been ripping through the shield, Eliya's eyes shimmered and darkened as she looked over her ex-husband, "What do you think you're doing?" she muttered, seemingly not bothered by Eva's presence, "Replacing me as Queen with her."

Caleb's lips formed into a tired sort of smile as he ran his fingers up Evangeline's chest and wrapped his fingers around her throat; squeezing as she continued to move her hips against him, whimpering while he grinned, "Look at her," he breathed, his blackening eyes shimmering as his gaze was only on Evangeline's black eyes and he squeezed her throat harder, "It's the best idea I've ever had, apart from raining fire onto Earth."

Eliya rolled her pretty black eyes, "It's the most foolish thing you've ever done aside from leaving me." she muttered, "She's venom, Caleb, all she'll do is poison you and then she'll kill you and what have you done? Made her Queen of Hell and when she's standing over your dead, rotting corpse, she'll be Queen, all on her own." she breathed, "Do you understand what I'm saying to you? You're so paranoid, you've royally and probably literally fucked yourself."

Caleb let go of Evangeline's throat, grinning as she gasped for air and he finally turned his gaze on Eliya, "What do you care?" he breathed, "You can't touch me, Eliya, and you know why? Because you're nothing but a has-been Queen and a whore the Kings of Hell used to fuck."

Eliya's lips curved into a wickedly sweet sort of smile, "Poor, deluded, Caleb." she breathed, "That's where you're wrong, see, as long as we were together you were King because I was the heir to Lucifer's Throne." she said, slowly moving towards the dais as her mother began to speak in an ancient and dead language all the words of the Fate laws that would unbind Caleb from the throne of Hell, Eliya placed a hand against her abdomen, dipping it lower until she grasped herself over her jeans, "The hand that rocks this cradle rules the world, sweetheart."

Caleb's jaw clenched before he looked up at Evangeline again, "Get off," he said through his teeth, shooting to his feet the moment she was off of him and he fixed his slacks before he moved to stand in front of his ex-wife, "That's cute, Eliya," he breathed, wrapping his fingers around her throat and squeezing.

Eliya choked out a laugh as Lilith finished the incantation, thoroughly severing Caleb's ties to the Throne of Hell and to his power as King, "My boyfriend," Eliya choked out, grabbing his wrist as she managed to laugh still, "Is going to kick your ass."

Caleb's black eyes seemed to lighten as the power was gone and he bared his teeth; not even getting a word out before his older brother grabbed the back of his blazer and threw him across the space, having him slam directly into the throne.

Eliya took in a deep breath as she brought her gaze to Chris' pretty face, "Thanks baby." she mumbled, rubbing her throat before she started towards Caleb, her eyes blackening out as she slammed her fist inside his chest, wrapping her fingers around his miserable black soul, "You're in my seat," she breathed, ripping the damaged thing right out of him, it shifted in the light sliding around her right ring fingers becoming dark gold ring with a nice, thick black diamond on top, "How pretty." she muttered, wiggling her fingers at him.

Caleb gritted his teeth, sparks flying in his pretty head for a moment as he looked up at her, something absolutely loathing in his light eyes, but he still didn't get to stay anything as Christian moved towards him again, grabbing the front of his shirt to yank him back to his feet, "You just made a big mistake, little brother," he breathed, head butting Caleb right on the nose to hear it snap before he threw him again, but Evangeline moved, getting a hold of Caleb's arm before he could hit the ground and they were both gone.

Eliya flicked her tongue across her teeth as she moved to sit her pretty ass down on her throne, a soft smile flitting across her lips as she held her hand out for Christian's, "We'll find them soon enough." she breathed, her gaze moving towards her mother's for a moment, "Bring me foolish ex-husband's Hands."

Aiden was on the balcony above the throne still; his black eyes shimmering in the light as he stepped onto the edge, "No need to look for me, my Queen," he breathed, stepping off the edge and soon hitting the ground with a low boom.

Eliya smiled softly at him as her mother disappeared, returning mere moments later to set Kiran Hawthorne on his feet again, the man straightened out his shirt before he raised a brow at Eliya, "You overthrew him?" he muttered, pursing his lips.
Eliya stood from her throne, the answer obvious and not needing to be stated, "Drop to a knee, both of you." she said, her black eyes shimmering.

"I don't think so," Aiden breathed, his shoulders tensed as he looked upon the Queen of Hell; absolutely not bowing for her.

Kiran glanced at his friend before his shoulders locked and he looked Eliya in her pretty black eyes, "I'm not getting on a knee to you or anyone, my blood don't kneel." he breathed.
Eliya's gaze slid over them, her face softening some but the black still stained her gaze, "You're either brave men or fools." she breathed, "But at least you're consistently loyal, even if it's not to me." she gave a shrug of her slender shoulders, moving to wrap her fingers around both of their throats, having to stand on the tips of her toes before she rocked back, tugging them down to her level. Power rippled across her skin as she tore their rights to Hell apart, denouncing them as Hell's Hands, and crippling some of their powers as immortals before the scenery around them shifted and they stood in a freezing cold, wasteland, "Good luck, gentlemen." she breathed, letting go of them, knowing they wouldn't be able to blink away now as she herself blinked back to Hell.

Aiden took a deep, freezing breath as he looked over at Kiran, a shudder wrapping around his spine as he grinned, "At least the Hands are together in the bloody cold," he breathed, obviously trying to be amusing.

Anna swallowed hard as she reached into the drawer next to her hospital bed; grabbing a syringe filled with adrenaline. She poured the contents of it out onto the floor before she uncapped the needle, tears still dripping down her cheeks as she tilted the needle so the sharpest point of it was facing her skin and she watched it, carving a long, thin and soon bloody line along her vein before her lips parted in a gasp and she dropped it, leaning back against the pillow again as she looked into the ceiling, letting the blood pour into the sheets and onto the hospital floors.
Anna's lids fluttered after a little while; her heart beating rapidly in her chest before it began to slow and she shut her eyes, whispering, "I love you, you fool," into the emptiness of the room; knowing he would not hear her or be there when she was gone and she soon was, the last drops of her blood spilling into the pool beneath her bed as her hand became limp and her heart gave in, allowing the once so alive and beautiful girl to pass.

Kiran felt a cruel shiver move up his spine, "It's always better to die with friends." he muttered, gritting his teeth as he looked around them, white stretching out on either side, "It could have been worse." he breathed.

Eliya St. Claire appeared moments too late, the sweets of her victory turning sour on her tongue as her gaze swept over Anna, "Damn it, Anna." she breathed, her throat tightening as she moved towards her best friend, touching her face gently, "You could have stayed with me." she whispered, her eyes burning.

Aiden gave a slight shrug of his shoulders, "Could have been demons everywhere," he muttered, reaching up to run his fingers over his curls.

Kiran made a face, opening his pretty mouth to say something when he heard a howl on the chilling wind, "Oh fuck, I really hope those are regular wolves..." he muttered.

"With our luck?" Aiden breathed, looking around them now as he bit his bottom lip, mentally praying that they were.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Sun Sep 30, 2012 2:37 pm

Kiran gritted his teeth, "I'ma kick Eliya's ass." he grumbled, crossing his arms over his chest when he could hear the hounds calling to each other over a chorus of paws pounding against snow.

Aiden's eyes widened some as he heard the hounds closing in on them and he took a breath, "Run," he breathed, giving Kiran a shove before he took off running in the same direction.

Kiran broke out into a run after him, those things growling at their backs and he cussed Eliya straight to Hell and back under his breath, "There's nothing but waste land." he called out to Aiden, not sure how they were going to get out of this one.

"Maybe there's a cave somewhere," Aiden called back to him as he ran faster; the snow pounding beneath his feet as his gaze searched the wasteland for somewhere to hide their asses.

Kiran's gaze slid across the vast ice, "Maybe under the ice?" he called back when suddenly he felt a hand wrapping around the back of his neck, only seeing a flash before he and Aiden were thrown to the hot ground of a palazzo in Argentina, "You two are so lucky, I gave two damns." Lynn Norratov grumbled, "Or you would have both been Popsicles for the Hounds."

Aiden rolled onto his back on the floor of the palazzo, a wide smile spreading across his handsome face as he breathed hard, "Ohmygod," he breathed, "We almost died."

Lynn felt a wide grin spread across her lips as she knelt in front of them, "And doesn't that make you feel like doing something life affirming." she breathed, winking at him before she turned her gaze to her son who was rolling onto his back, "Remember Argentina?"

Aiden couldn't help but grin at this as he took a deep breath, looking into the ceiling as he felt his heart start to beat normally again.

Kiran grunted an affirmative and Lynn smiled, "Good because this is where you're both staying until Eliya decides she really doesn't want to either of you maimed by wolves." she muttered, looking between him and Aiden, her brow raised in case of objections.

Aiden gave a slight nod, "Yes, ma'am," he breathed, a crookedness coming over his grin.

Lynn grinned at this as she straightened and held her hands out to help them up, "Good, you'll have some roommates though..." she breathed, biting her lip.

Aiden took her hand before he pulled himself to his feet, "What kind of roommates?"

Kiran took her hand as well, pulling himself to his feet as Lynn pursed her lips, "All sorts of roommates." she muttered, "There are a lot of people I want to keep safe and some who just showed up and haven't left." she breathed, starting towards the large oak door.

Aiden nodded slightly, but he didn't say anything as he straightened his t-shirt and began after her.

Lynnie pushed open the front door, an immediate chattering filling the space of the foyer as she led them into the living room where littering the couches and rug space were various people that Kiran couldn't help but grin at, Lynn turned to Aiden and began with the dark haired man on the couch closest to them, "This is my grandfather, Maximus." she started, gesturing to the bigger and younger dark haired man beside him, "My brother, Caden." and then a more handsome and heavily tatted man, "My Uncle, Micah." and then to a white blond haired man, "My father, Simon." and then to a more familiar face, "My evil ex-husband William, who refuses to leave." she moved onto a young woman who looked so much like her, "My daughter, Raya, her sisters, Eden and Chloe." she gestured to the two somewhat smaller versions of her and then to two, small fraternal twins who were pushing Baby Lucien around in his little play-thing, "My twins, Konstantine and Anastasia." and then to the last man in the room, a tall, mocha-colored gorgeous specimen of a man, "And my nephew, Stacey."

Aiden slowly nodded as he went over the names mentally, a slight smile curving his lips now as he looked them over again, "A lot of family," he breathed.

Lynn smiled to herself, "We protect each other...for the most part." she said, "And you're welcome here." she muttered, glancing up at him, biting her lip for a moment before she held out her hand, "Take a walk with me?"

Aiden nodded again as he took her hand, allowing her to lead the way as he glanced back at Kiran, "See you later, bro," he breathed, smiling still as he gestured for Lynn to walk.

Lynn led Aiden out of the living room towards her den, tugging him inside before she shut the door and pushed him up against it, she pressed her pretty body up against his and leaned a little ways to kiss him hard.

Aiden made a noise against her mouth; tensing for a moment before he slid his arms around her and moved them, for him to slam her up against the door instead before he kissed her deeply and most thoroughly; knowing this was something they both needed after six months of sexual absent.

Lynn made a sweet low noise in her throat as she tangled her fingers in his hair, kissing him back just as thoroughly, heat spreading through her belly before she moved her hands to rip open his shirt, breaking their kiss to place hot, wet ones all over his neck and collar bone.

Aiden took a deep breath; feeling himself harden already as he watched her, biting his bottom lip hard..

... Lynn arched her back against the floor, pleasure making her tremble as she groaned his name, dragging her nails across his back, sure to give him new scars as she wrapped her long legs tighter around his waist.

Aiden bent his head; gently biting her neck as he continued moving against her, pleasure washing over him as he pressed into her a last time; harder and deeper than formerly as ecstasy exploded in his abdomen.

Lynn shuddered in pleasure again, holding him tighter against her as she curled her fingers in his hair and yank his head back to kiss him hard, "It was worth the wait." she breathed, biting his bottom lip.

Aiden couldn't help but grin at this, "Definitely," he breathed, kissing her pretty mouth again.

Lynnie smiled before she rolled him onto his back, shivering as she moved her head to place kisses all over his chest, "We should do this again." she breathed, "And again..." she mumbled, biting his chest over his heart.

Aiden breathed a laugh at this; a shiver wrapping around his spine as he ran his fingers over her hair, "Don't you think we should wait a bit? I mean, your family is out there. Probably suspicious," he breathed, glancing down at her.

Caleb sat on his couch in his newly furnished apartment in the new New York City, overlooking the wasteland that was once Times Square. He had a bottle of Blue Label in his hand, one that he was well on his way to emptying as he took another swig, his body lazily leaned back on the leather couch, his legs spread and his gaze on the TV in front of him, showing nothing but static. For some reason, he preferred this time, when Evangeline had left the apartment to tend to her hunger and he could drink in peace.

Lynnie considered this before her pretty lips formed a pout, "I suppose." she mumbled, kissing his chest again, "But we will do this again, later." she breathed, smiling softly at him as she moved her head to kiss his mouth.

"Oh, Caleb." Claudia Canbaz sighed as she appeared, looking ever beautiful in a tight fitting black dress, her chocolate curls dripping around her shoulders in perfect ringlets, "What have you done to yourself?" she breathed, her Louboutins clicking as she took a few slow steps towards him.

"Of course," Aiden breathed against her mouth, kissing her gently before he smiled again, feeling utterly comfortable around her.

Caleb pressed the head of the bottle to his lips again as he raised his light gaze to Claudia's beautiful face. He didn't answer, his gaze simply moving over her for a brief moment before he took another long swig and returned to looking straight ahead at nothing.

Lynn ran her fingers over his hair again as she moved her head to kiss his pretty noise before she forced herself to slide off of him, holding her hand out to him to pull him up with her so they could dress.

Claudia bit her lip, cocking her head slightly before she came to kneel in front of him, placing her hands on his knees to look up into his face, not caring how lewd it must have looked, her pretty cerulean eyes sincere and a little sad, "I did love you, you know?" she breathed, "And I do care, despite all the nasty little things I may have done, I do care about you, and the company you're keeping is the wrong sort of company."

Caleb was silent for a moment, something sincerely sad coming into his eyes as he dropped his gaze to meet hers, "I know," he breathed, putting his bottle on the armrest next to him as he sighed, "I'm dying, Claudia."

Claudia's throat tightened as she reached up to touch his cheek, "You can't die, you're Caleb Vladislav." she breathed, her pretty eyes shimmering as she leaned up to kiss his lips gently, "Come away with me, Caleb, I can give you a better immortality than you've ever imagined." she whispered.

Caleb's lips curved into a sweet smile as he raised his hand to run his thumb over her lips, "I think I'll pass, sweetheart," he breathed, "I've known it was coming for a long time and I've come to terms with it; after midnight I'll be dead and gone for good."

Claudia's gaze filled but she didn't let herself cry, "Then spend your last night with me, I've missed you." she whispered, kissing him gently again.

Caleb cocked his pretty head a bit to the side as he studied her eyes, his smile warming some, "I've missed you too, darling," he breathed, gently taking one of her hands in his, "Dance with me?"

Claudia smiled softly at him, "There is no one I'd rather dance with." she breathed, standing to take his hand and pull from his seat.

Caleb grinned at her as he picked up a small remote and turned it towards the speakers in the corner of the room, pressing a button before a very 20s tune, That Man by Caro Emerald began to play and he swept her off of her feet, moving towards the panorama windows in a spin before he bent his head to kiss her plump lips.

Claudia smiled more warmly as she slid her arms around him and kissed him deeply, "I love you, Caleb Vladislav, did you know that?" she muttered, hugging him to her.

Caleb smiled against her lips before he put her back on her feet, kissing her deeply before he rubbed his nose against hers, "No, but I like surprises," he breathed, biting his bottom lip, "I think I'll miss you most of all, darling," he whispered, raising his hand to touch her cheek as the song on the stereo changed, Coldplay's See You Soon now filling the room.

Claudia swallowed hard, "I will miss you so much." she whispered, her eyes burning again as she moved her hand to run her fingers over his hair.

Caleb smiled warmly at her still, "No tears, love, you know how I feel about that sappy stuff," he breathed, wanting her to smile as he bent his head to kiss her forehead.

Aiden stood with her and in a matter of moments he had found his clothes and dressed himself in them again, looking so tired now as he sighed, "Thank you for saving our asses," he breathed, feeling as if those words had been delayed too much already.

Claudia sniffled, "I know." she breathed, smiling up at him warmly as she let the music move over them, her gaze only on his pretty face.

Lynn smiled as she finished dressing and leaned up a little to kiss him gently, "It was the least I could do, you spent the last six months taking care of me." she mumbled.

Caleb sighed softly; relaxing some for the first time in months as he bent his head again to lay his forehead against hers, knowing it wouldn't be long before he'd start feeling the effects of the massive amount of poison he'd drank.

Aiden smiled at this, but he didn't say anything as he moved to open the door for her.

Claudia studied him, her pretty eyes shimmering as she held him close, memorizing every thing he felt like and everything made her feel.

Lynn slipped out of the den, running her fingers through her sex-crazed hair a few times as she began to lead him out towards the living room again, knowing all the knowing-looks they'd be getting but it only seemed to make her smile.

Caleb shut his eyes for a brief moment as he inhaled through his nose, "Would you be mad at me if I wanted you to get in bed with me a last time?" he breathed, slowly opening his eyes again to look at her.

Aiden let her lead him, raising his hand to run his fingers over his curls, but he said nothing.

Claudia shook her head slowly, "No," she breathed, kissing him softly, "All I want is to hold you." she whispered.

Kiran looked up at his mother and his friend as they entered the living room and he made a knowing-face as he shook his head but otherwise said nothing, noticing the black look on his father's face as well; Lynn bit her lip as her gaze swept across Kiran's face and reality blossomed again, "Kiran, there is something I need to tell you, sweetheart, let's step outside, okay?"

Caleb didn't say anything this time; a soft look over his handsome face as he bent down to scoop her into his arms before he started up the stairs to the open bedroom with her, letting the soft tunes from the stereo stay in the room.

Aiden pursed his lips, but he remained silent as he moved to take a seat not too far from William; not even looking at him.

Claudia put her arms around him, breathing sweet and loving things into his ear as she placed kisses all over his jaw and neck.

Kiran nodded slowly as he let his mother lead him onto the back patio; they were gone for only a few moments when there was a sound like glass shattering and a wounded cry that sent William Hawthorne to his feet, moving towards the sound.

Caleb smiled to himself as he placed her carefully on the white sheets covering the very large, soft bed and he shrugged out of his blazer before he got onto his knees on the bed and turned her onto her belly for him to unzip her dress, placing kisses on the skin he exposed.

Aiden shot back to his feet in a second, a frown forming between his brows as he started out for the patio.

Claudia felt a shiver pass down her spine and she shut her eyes to save his kisses and his touch.

William opened the patio door, stopping at the scene before him; Lynn was on her knees, holding her grown little boy against her as he sobbed on her shoulder, his hand lay broken and bloody at his side as she ran her fingers over his hair, her eyes burning as she breathed the same Russian prayer over and over again.

Caleb continued, placing sweet kisses on her skin as he began to shimmy the dress off of her; soon letting it drop to the floor before he helped her stilettos off and put them next to her dress, having decided to let their last time together be as loving and easy-going as possible, before he moved over her to kiss her neck and shoulders.

Aiden stopped next to William, swallowing hard as he raised his hand to run his fingers over his hair again; silently watching the scene before them.

Claudia made a sweet noise, her lids fluttering open to glance back at him over her shoulder, "I love you." she breathed, loving just to say it and meaning it.

Lynn held her son closer, her throat tightening and making the prayers sound choked as tears slipped down her cheeks, "I'm so sorry." she whispered, "I'm so sorry." she breathed.

Caleb met her gaze for a moment, something so sincere in his eyes as he whispered, "And I love you," and ran his fingers up her sides, kissing her shoulder a last time as he glanced up at the panorama windows, smiling softly, "It's raining," he breathed.

Aiden took a breath before he took a step forward, making his way to them before he lowered himself next to them, putting a hand on Kiran's shoulder as he bit his lip, "I'm sorry, man," he breathed, something knowing in his gaze.

Claudia turned her gaze to the window, "The skies are crying." she breathed, feeling her own tears sting her eyes again for just a moment.

Kiran swallowed a whimper as he moved back a little, "I need to find Caleb, he'll know what to do." he choked, shaking his head, "He'll know what to do, I need to see my brother." he whispered, burying his face in his hands, "He'll know.."

Caleb scoffed; his smile widened for a moment before he kicked off his shoes, sitting up a little to pull his shirt over his head, "That's depressing, baby," he breathed, unzipping his slacks.

Aiden bit his bottom lip harder as he raised his gaze to meet Lynn's, not even knowing what to do in this situation as he sighed, "We'll find him."

"Sorry." Claudia mumbled, turning her gaze back to him as a soft smile spread across her lips, just watching him.

Lynn studied Aiden's gaze, reaching up to touch his face gently, "Thank you." she breathed as William made a sort of noise, "There's no need to thank him, dahlin, I know where he is." he said, moving towards them now.

Caleb grinned down at her as he kicked off his slacks and then his briefs, making a face as if he was readying himself for a marathon before he met her gaze again, "You ready for me, baby?" he breathed, trying to be amusing as he moved over her again and slid himself in between her legs.

Aiden sighed, not even commenting on the fact that the bastard was making the tragedy about him as he looked up at him, "Where is he?"

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Sun Sep 30, 2012 2:49 pm

Claudia shivered, her toes curling, "I've always been ready for you." she breathed, that old sort of wickedness coming into her smile as she curled her fingers in the sheet.

"What used to be New York." Will breathed, studying his son for a moment as something like genuine empathy past over his gaze before fading into his usual mask of apathy, "I can take him." he said, studying Lynn's face, "If you want.."

Caleb couldn't help but smile wider at her as he slid his arm around her to have her closer to him before he slowly began to move against her; deeper with every move as he bent his head to kiss her shoulder, wanting this last time with her to last.

Aiden sighed again, but he didn't say anything as he straightened, stuffing his hands into the pockets of his jeans.

Claudia gasped and breathed out his name, pleasure spreading through her abdomen as her lids fluttered, savoring every moment of him.

Lynn straightened, pulling her son up with her, "I'll take him." she breathed, reaching up to wipe the tears from Kiran's face, not trusting William around Kiran whatsoever especially in this state.

Caleb bit his bottom lip hard as he continued to move against her; pleasure tingling in his abdomen as he curled his fingers in the sheet, the feel of her having him shiver...

"Let me know if you need me," Aiden muttered, giving a reassuring sort of smile to Lynn.

Lynn nodded, "I will." she breathed, not noticing the glare William shot the other man as she disappeared to what had been New York to Caleb's apartment.
Claudia fell asleep peacefully, feeling sated and warm being with Caleb like this, just feeling him being all she needed.

Caleb laid half-way on top of her still, hugging her body close to him for a moment before he sighed, not even feeling Lynn and Kiran there as he slid off of Claudia's body; reaching over to grab a cigarette out of the pack on his nightstand and lighting it before he stood, pulling on his briefs and slacks.

Lynn sat Kiran down on the couch, "I'll be back." she said softly before she began up the stairs to find Caleb.

Caleb blinked slowly as he stepped forth in the open bedroom, that overlooked the entire apartment and he raised a brow at Lynn, "What the hell are you doing here?" he mumbled, the cigarette between his lips as he fixed his slacks.

Lynn raised her gaze to his face, "Don't talk to me like that." she breathed, still moving up the stairs, sniffling, "We need to talk." she gestured down to Kiran, "It's important."

Caleb frowned a bit at this as he took a long drag from his cigarette; his gaze moving to his brother, "What happened?" he breathed, a worried line creasing his forehead.

Lynnie swallowed hard as she reached him, "Anna killed herself." she whispered, her eyes burning as she studied every inch of his face, grabbing his chin to make him look down at her, "And now Eva's killing you too, isn't she?" she whispered, her chest tightening at the thought.

Caleb blinked slowly as he studied her eyes closely; processing this information before he swallowed hard, "Yes," he breathed.

Lynn was silent for a very long moment, "He will stay with you until the very end, you know, you have been his brother when all of his have died." she breathed, her voice thick as she kept his gaze, "If I haven't told and if I never get a chance again, you made me love again when I thought I never would, I know you didn't mean to but you brought me back to life once and I will always love you for it, Caleb Walker." she whispered, leaning up to press her lips against his.

Caleb gently kissed her before he moistened his lips, "Wish I could've done more, sweetheart," he breathed, kissing her more lovingly before he started down the stairs to talk to his brother.

Lynn turned to watch him go, "Dasvidaniya, Caleb." she whispered, "Until we meet again." her violet-silver eyes shimmered as she disappeared home again, leaving her son in his best friend's hands.
Kiran brought his gaze up to Caleb's, "She's gone." he whispered, meaning Anna, his face still wet with tears.

Caleb sighed, something sad coming over his face as he moved to sit on the coffee table in front of his brother, "I know," he breathed, studying his face closely, "I'm so sorry, Kiran.."

Kiran's throat felt like it was closing up, "How could she leave? I told her I needed her and she still did it, she still left me." he whispered, "My soul hurts so bad..." he breathed, clutching his aching chest.

Caleb swallowed hard as he dropped his gaze to the floor, raising his hand to rub the top of his head as he put out his cigarette, "I can't take it away, Kiran," he breathed, "I'm.. I'm sorry, but I don't have that power anymore." he bit his bottom lip as he raised his gaze back to his brother's face, "Anna wouldn't have wanted you to be like this, y'know that, and she wouldn't have wanted you to get rid of your soul and lose yourself."

Kiran swallowed hard against the lump of his heart sticking in his throat as he studied his best friend, "You can't die, Caleb, I need you, you're my brother." he whispered, his eyes burning.

Caleb bit the inside of his cheek, his jaw tightening for a moment as he studied his brother's face closely, "We both know that's not entirely true, bro, I've always needed you more than the other way around," he breathed, a slight smile curving his lips as he tried to be amusing before he bit his lip again, "I have an hour left."

Kiran swallowed hard, "What do we do?" he whispered, searching Caleb's gaze.

Caleb gave a slight shrug of his shoulders, "Drink?" he breathed, watching his brother's face, "We could go out, find a bench and drink like hobos."

Kiran nodded slowly, "Whatever you want, brother." he said softly, wiping at his face.

Caleb smiled at this, giving his brother's shoulder a squeeze before he got up, starting for his bedroom again to get his shirt as he gestured to the kitchen, "Get all the bottles and cigars you can find, we're cleaning out this bitch."

Kiran nodded as he stood, beginning to move through the house, finding all the liquor and smokes he could.

Lynnie bit her lip hard as she made her back into the living room, still full of people she loved and cared about, the weight of so much bad news feeling so heavy on her slender shoulders.

Caleb felt a shudder move up his spine as he buttoned his shirt; knowing this was probably the poison starting to work as he glanced down at Claudia and decided to let her sleep. He bit his bottom lip as he lowered himself next to her and leaned in to gently kiss her forehead, whispering the words 'I love you' before he straightened and left the bedroom, quickly starting for the door as he glanced over his shoulder at his brother, "I'm gonna get some clean booze for you downstairs, meet me on the street in ten."

Kiran gave a slight nod, sliding off his jacket as made a sac of it and began to fill it the loot he found, trying not to think that this was the last hour he'd get to sit with his best friend.

Caleb was inside of the apartment below within moments; clearing out the liquor cabinet of what he knew was a cheating, heavily drinking business man and he was also out within less than five minutes, carrying his loot in a woman's bag he'd found and was now making it down to the street.

Kiran soon finished cleaning out the place and found himself on the street, moments later, moving after his best friend.

Caleb glanced over his shoulder at his brother; silent until they were next to each other and he made a turn; skipping over the street towards what appeared to be a burned out park. He sighed, returning his gaze to his brother's face, "What are you going to do?"

"After you die?" Kiran muttered, "I think I'm either going to sink so low I'll drown or I'm just going to get really pissed off and burn down the whole fucking world."

Caleb couldn't help but roll his eyes at this, "I prefer the latter," he breathed, giving a slight shrug, "I'd be pissed if you didn't start living for me as well."

Enough to time to pass for everyone to somewhat move on, oh and it's Lynn's birthday, August 13th...
Lynnie bit her lip as she swept her violet-silver gaze across the ball room floor, she stood atop the marble staircase, looking damn near radiant in a strapless black evening gown, it was tight at her waist and flowed down to a floor, a visible slit rising up her thigh and black Jimmy Choos that wouldn't put her over six feet; her dark curls fell in ringlets around her very beautiful face and a soft smile lit her lips as the music began to play and she started her descent, the staircase was lined on either side with variously handsome men but none as dashing as her own date, Aiden Stark, who stood to her right, waiting to escort her down just like Maximus had choreographed for days.

Aiden's jaw nearly dropped when he saw Lynnie, but he kept a straight face, a warm smile spreading across his lips as he bent a little at the waist in a formal bow and he straightened soon after, only to hold his hand out to her, "You look.." he started, biting his bottom lip, "Unbelievable."

Caleb Vladislav pulled his red Lamborghini Aventador J up to Maximus' mansion; the engine roaring like a monster coming straight out of Hell. He looked up at the mansion, a smile spreading across his handsome lips before he got out of the beast, looking like the devil himself in a black Armani suit as moved around the front to open the door for Anna Thomas; an angel in purple silk and sparkly Louboutins that clicked when she stepped out the the car and ran her fingers over her perfect chocolate ringlets, a soft smile playing on her plump lips as she took Caleb's arm and they started for the door together.

Lynn felt warmth flush her face as if a man had never called her beautiful before, "Thank you." she breathed, taking his hand and leaning over to steal a quick kiss from his lips even though it was completely off-script.

Eliya St. Claire stood at the bottom of the staircase, she looked beautiful in a tight, straight black dress, a slit rising up her right let, sparkling Louboutins on her feet, she looked so small and elegant next to Christian Walker, a soft smile on her lips even though her gaze was distant as if she was barely there at all. Across from them, Kiran Hawthorne stood, a gorgeous devil in a black suit with Claudia Canbaz on one arm and Daphne Canbaz on the other, an actual warm smile on his lips as he looked up at his mother.

Aiden grinned, simply because he couldn't help himself as he began leading her forward, his gaze moving over the people there as he remained silent, merely enjoying that Lynn was finally with him.

Christian Walker had his arm around Eliya's waist; looking handsome as all Hell in his black suit, his blue eyes observant of everything as he bent his head to kiss the top of her hair, obviously well aware of how distant she was. He opened his mouth to comment on said distantness before the doors opened and he glanced up, immediately spotting his brother entering with Anna and he couldn't help but grin, "Look who decided to join the party."

Lynn's gaze slid to the front doors and she arched a perfect to herself, "I think they're are ghosts in the foyer." she breathed, studying how beautiful Anna and Caleb looked.

Eliya's gaze seemed to focus and her heart jumped in her chest, simply because it always did whenever he entered a room, she bit her lip hard, the weight of Caleb's soul on her right hand suddenly feeling so much heavier, "Hmm." was all she managed, not trusting herself to speak.

Caleb glanced around at the people there; a wide grin spreading across his handsome face as he spotted Lynnie and he let go of Anna for a brief moment to put a hand on each side of his mouth, "Happy birthday, baby," he called, knowing the entire room would hear him as he grinned even wider, offering his arm to Anna again as they started for the birthday girl.

Lynn couldn't help but grin to herself as she squeezed Aiden's fingers, "I've missed them." she mumbled, thinking this was almost a perfect birthday present.

Aiden smiled warmly, more to himself than anything as he squeezed her fingers back, only letting go when Caleb came a little to close to them and wrapped his arms around Lynn's waist before lifting her, "Goddamnit, you're gorgeous," he breathed.

Lynn made a noise, putting her arms around his neck to hug him, "You're not so bad yourself." she breathed, "For a dead man, of course." she muttered, pulling back to kiss his very lovely nose.

Caleb smiled warmly at her, "Thanks, babe," he breathed, moving his face to steal a most loving sort of kiss, before he put her back on her feet, sidestepping to greet his old friend with a wicked grin, "Midget, I've missed you."
Anna bit her bottom lip as she looked up at her lovely ex-mother-in-law, a sheepish sort of smile curving her lips, "Hey, ma," she breathed.

Lynn smiled warmly at her ex-daughter-in-law, "Dochʹ, ya skuchal po tebe." she breathed, pulling Anna into her arms.

Anna slid her arms around Lynnie's waist, hugging her tight as she gave a soft sigh, as if finally relaxing completely, "I missed you too, ma," she breathed, shutting her eyes a moment, "Happy birthday."

Lynn hugged her tight, "You're the perfect present." she mumbled, hugging her tighter.
Kiran bit her lip, his heart beating faster as he studied his best friend and his woman, but he let them have their moments with his mother as his gaze slid to Eliya, whose gaze never seemed to leave Caleb.

Anna made a sweet noise before she pulled back a little, getting on her toes to kiss, what she considered her mama's cheek, "I'll be back later, I have to find the others," she breathed, a warm smile curving her lips once more before she turned, fixing her curls as she briefly looked around for Kiran and her best friend, unable to keep herself from rolling her eyes when she spotted her ex-husband with both Claudia and Daphne Canbaz, but she still started towards them, Caleb following closely behind her with a wide grin on his handsome face when his gaze found Claudia and he immediately grabbed her when they were close enough, pulling her into a deep, most thorough kiss.

Kiran couldn't help the widest grin that curved his lips as his eyes were only on Anna, "Hey, baby." he breathed, pulling her into his arms to steal a kiss from her whether she wanted it or not.
Claudia made a sweet noise, putting her arms around him to kiss him back in the most thorough way as Eliya stifled a noise and turned to leave the room before either of them could pay attention to her.

Anna tensed for the briefest moment before she made a sweet noise, slipping her arms around his neck as she kissed her ex-husband deeply, only pulling back a little to kiss his nose, "Hey," she breathed, running her fingers over his hair, "Are you enjoying yourself?"
Caleb's lips didn't leave hers for a moment, not even when he slid a hand down her back to place it firmly on her ass; having missed her in every sense of the word as he pulled back a little to study her face, "I fucking missed you, baby," he breathed.

Kiran grinned, "I am now." he said softly, studying every inch of her face, "I missed you so much." he muttered.
Claudia made another sweet noise, "I've missed you too," she breathed, a shiver ripping up her spine as she pressed into him.

Anna smiled softly at him as she ran her thumb over his lips, "I missed you too," she breathed, kissing his nose again.
Caleb grinned down at her; kissing her pretty forehead before he loosened his hold on her, "Excuse me a second, baby," he breathed, stepping away from her and practically picking up Anna by the waist to move her before he grinned even wider at his best friend, "Brother," he breathed, taking Kiran's face in his hands before he planted the sweetest sort of kiss directly on his forehead.
Christian bit his lip, but he said nothing to any of them as he turned and headed in the direction Eliya had went, calling out for her.

Kiran grinned so wide his face hurt, "I guess you missed me then?" he breathed, arching a brow at his best friend as he wrapped his arms around his bro's waist and bear hugged him, not even noticing Micah Norratov as he slipped out of a coat closet, looking a bit ruffled, two pretty brunettes stumbling out after him.
Eliya swallowed hard as she made her way out onto the back veranda before she stopped and turned to Chris, "I'm sorry." she breathed, her eyes burning, "It would be so much easier if I just loved you..."

Caleb grinned as he hugged his brother tight, "You have no idea, bro," he muttered, giving him a crushing squeeze.
Anna couldnt help but smile as she watched the boys, warmth blossoming in her chest already, while her gaze slipped and fell onto the pretty cannibal; her smile suddenly turning into the bite of her bottom lip while she raised her hand to finger-wave at him.

Christian couldnt help it when he sighed, raising his hands to rub his face, "I thought you would be over him by now, Elle."

Kiran's grin didn't waver, "We needa celebrate later, you, me, and Aiden." he muttered.
Micah caught her gaze and the sexiest half-grin curved his lips as he swaggered forward, grabbing her around the waist and kissing her in the naughtiest way.

Eliya felt hot tears slip down her face, "It would just be so much easier if I was." she breathed, her throat tight, "I can't love you how you deserve Christian." she whispered, lifting her gaze to his face, "I can't love you in all the ways I love him."

Lynn bit her lip, hearing music start from the dance floor, and she smiled, turning to Aiden, "Dance with me?" she breathed, holding her hand out for his.

Caleb's grin didn't waver either as he nodded, "Booze, drugs and women, yeah?" he breathed, knowing his brother knew exactly how he wanted to celebrate.
Anna made a sweet noise, reaching up to curl her fingers in his shirt as she kissed him back in the most passionate manner she could muster before she sucked his lip in between her teeth.

"Is there any other way, brother?" Kiran muttered, arching a brow, "How did you get back? When?"
Micah made a sweet noise, "I missed you too." he muttered in his thick, beautiful accent.

"We both got back yesterday," Caleb muttered, gesturing over his shoulder to Anna, "I don't know who the Hell got us out, but I'm glad they did."
Anna moistened her lips; savoring the taste of him before she smiled warmly at him, "You have no idea how happy I am to see you," she breathed, studying his pretty eyes.

Kiran grinned wider, "Remind me to thank them when you find out." he breathed as Claudia wrapped her arms around Caleb from behind, "Dance with me?" she breathed, kissing his ear.
"Oh, any specific reason?" Micah breathed, raising a brow.

Caleb smiled to himself as he turned his head a little to look at her, "I'd love to," he breathed, taking her hand in his before he twisted, spinning her in the cutest way possible.
Anna bit her bottom lip in a playful manner as she got on the front of her stilettos to kiss his pretty mouth again, "Maybe," she breathed.

Claudia grinned at this, "You make me feel so beautiful." she breathed, gracing him with a soft melodic laugh.
"Keep it in your pants, you haven't said hello to me." Caden Landry breathed, appearing beside Micah.

Caleb smiled even wider at this before he pulled her close to him again, moving his hips a little to have her move with him, "You are beautiful, darling," he breathed.
Anna made a sweet noise as she let go of Micah to throw her arms around Caden's neck and hug him tight, "I missed you, kitten," she breathed.

Claudia made a sweet noise as she rubbed her nose against his while they danced, "I love you." she said softly, leaning a bit to kiss him.
Caden wrapped his arms around her, bear-hugging her around the waist to lift her off her feet, "I missed you too, short stuff."

"I love you too, gorgeous," Caleb breathed, sincerity in his gaze as he bent his head to have their lips meet.
Anna bent her knees a little as she squeezed him tighter, "How've you been?" she breathed.

"I know," Christian breathed, something genuinely sad about his gaze as he continued to watch her face.

Aiden couldn't help but smile at the beautiful birthday girl as he took her hand, "I'd love to," he said softly.

Claudia kissed him in the most loving way, "I have to confess something." she breathed, biting her lip now as she studied his face, "A year ago, a few hours before I came to you, Eliya made me her Left Hand in Hell." she began softly, "The only reason I was able to find you was because she sent me to you."

Eliya rubbed her face, "You should hate me, Chris, you should hate me most of all." she breathed, "I've been using you, telling myself I should love you because it would be so much easier because at the end of the day I know you wouldn't leave me and it's wrong, it's all wrong, and I'm so sorry." she whispered.

Lynnie felt a warm smile spread across her lips as she led him out onto the dance floor, putting her arms his neck as the song playing got slower and she moved her hips a little against his, "I'm glad you came." she breathed, laying her forehead against his.

Caden grinned as he set her back on her feet, "I've been relatively okay, I got all my marbles back." he said, gesturing to his pretty head.

Caleb arched a brow at her, a slight frown curving his lips as he studied her face closely now, "Why did she send you?"

Christian sighed again, but he didn't say anything as he took a step towards her; bending his pretty head to kiss the top of hers before he disappeared.

"Like I'd miss my favorite girl's birthday party," Aiden breathed, rolling his eyes at her in a theatrical manner, "Please."

Anna smiled even wider at him now, "Good," she breathed, getting on the front of her stilettos to kiss his cheek before she settled back on her heels and pursed her pretty lips, "Where's Drake?"

Claudia bit her lip, "To love you." she said softly, meeting his gaze, "To be with you, it was very sweet, really." she mumbled.

Lynn grinned at this, "Oh, I'm your favorite?" she breathed, arching a brow, pulling back a little to cock her pretty head.

Micah pursed his lips as he glanced around for his nephew, "You know, I haven't a damn clue." he breathed.

Caleb's frown deepened some at this as he stopped moving; his gaze now scrutinizing her pretty face, "So what is this, Claudia?" he breathed, gesturing between them, "Orders from Eliya?"

"Definitely," Aiden breathed, grinning widely at her.

Anna pursed her lips, "Huh," she breathed, giving a slight shrug of her slender shoulders before she returned her gaze to Caden's pretty face, "Do I still have to keep it in my pants?" she muttered, biting her bottom lip.

Claudia frowned at this, "No, of course not." she breathed, "I really do love you and this is me loving you." she said softly.

Lynn grinned wider as she leaned forward to kiss his pretty mouth, "You're my favorite too." she muttered, rubbing her nose against his.

Caden made a face at her, "Yes." he breathed, narrowing his eyes playfully at her, "It's a party not an orgy."

"Are you sure about that?" Caleb breathed, his light eyes narrowing in a suspicious manner as he looked her over, "If Eliya sent you to me, there must've been something up her sleeve. If I hadn't died that night, then what?"

"Better be," Aiden breathed, rubbing his nose against hers as he slid an arm around her waist to hold her close to him.

Anna rolled her pretty eyes clockwise at him, "It's not an orgy if I'm making out with my favorite cannibal in a closet," she breathed, glancing up at Micah as she bit her bottom lip playfully.

Claudia opened her mouth and then shut it again before she sighed, "I don't know." she said softly, "She just sent me to you and then after you died, she sent us after Evangeline, that was all." she mumbled.
Lynn smiled softly, opening her pretty mouth to say something sweet when the doors clattered open and three very powerful looking demons stepped through the front door, sending the band into a sort of panicked silence as the leader stepped forward, looking like a rat in a suit as his beady black eyes scanned the crowd, "We've come all this way to see the child." he called, his companions nodding in turn as his tongue rolled out of his mouth to lick his lips.

Caleb glanced up from Claudia's pretty face; his eyes darkening some as he stepped away from her, not saying anything else as his gaze focused on the demons, hoping that the Queen would show up to take care of her minions soon.

Lynn's spine tensed but she didn't get a chance to move before she heard Eliya's voice call out, "How dare you show up at the party of my dear friend and not only my friend, but my own Right Hand." she emerged from the crowd, her eyes shimmering as black as obsidian, a cruel sort of magick spreading from her skin as if in the year that had passed she had become colder, darker, and steadily more powerful.
The leader had the grace to bow his ugly head, "I am sorry my Lady, we did not you would be...attending." he said, his tongue flicking out to lick his thin, cracked lips.
Eliya arched a perfect brow, "And even if I wasn't, the child you want so desperately to see is under my protection and I would have known regardless that you came." she said, tilting her head, "Unless you think me a fool? Do you think I'm a fool?"
The demon shook his head quickly, "Of coursssse not." his lisp becoming steadily worse as he seemed to hunch forward before her, "We meant no harm, my Queen, we only wanted to be near our old masssster."
"I am your only master." Eliya breathed, her tone so full of ice it would have sent a shiver ripping up a lesser man's spine as they started to back towards the door, she clenched her fist, rooting them to their spots, "No, don't leave, you came all this way, why don't I introduce you to a dear friend." she muttered, a cruel smile tilting her lips, "Claudia." Claudia looked up at Caleb for a moment before was beside Eliya in mere seconds, "Feed." Claudia's lips spread apart as she showed all her pointy teeth, Eliya turned her back to the scene, the animalistic screeching sounds echoing through the ball room sending an almost pleasurable shiver up her spine.

Caleb arched a brow at the scene, watching his woman feed for a moment before he turned his gaze on Eliya; his lips twisting into an almost disgusted grimace before he started for the bar.

Eliya pursed her lips but she said nothing else, leaving Claudia to do as she was told as she started after Caleb, "Are you still sore with me, Caleb?" she breathed, cocking her pretty head, her eyes lighting into their two different pools of blue and green.

"I'm not sore with you, darling," Caleb breathed, not looking back at her as he seated himself by the liquor, "I just have an urge to stuff a tire iron down your throat."

Eliya's lips pulled into a frown, "That hurts my feelings." she muttered, seating herself next to him even though she knew he didn't want her there, "Despite all the horrible things you might be thinking of doing to me, I'm actually glad you're back," she said softly.

Caleb grabbed a bottle of whiskey, pouring himself a large glass before he glanced down at her, his brow arched, "Don't you have one of my brothers to fuck or something?"

Eliya pursed her lips, "I think I just broke his heart." she said softly, biting her lip as she dropped her gaze, she opened her mouth to say something more when Claudia strode towards them, her pretty face and white dress splattered in thick black blood, "Are you satisfied my Queen?" she breathed, looking almost worried as she fidgeted with her hands, biting her lip like a child waiting for mother's approval.

Caleb glanced over his shoulder at Claudia, his lips twisting once more before he downed his entire drink and slid out of his chair, "Excuse me while I go purge," he muttered, starting back into the crowd of people to find his brother.

Kiran pursed his lips, watching some of his grandfather's men beginning to clean up Claudia's mess, he wrinkled his nose as he turned away to study the crowd where he spotted his brother and started towards him, "Did you see that?" he muttered, his lips twisting.

Caleb made a gesture to his temple, "Eliya's gone off the wagon and made Claudia her bitch," he mumbled, faking a shudder before he ran his fingers over his hair, "What do you say we get the hell out of here?"

Kiran gave a slight nod, "I'd love to." he muttered, "Strippers, booze, and drugs, right?" he grinned.

Caleb's lips formed into a grin, "Definitely," he breathed, patting his brother's shoulder before he started for the door.

"Hold on." Kiran muttered, starting for Aiden and his mother, "We're headed out, ma, do you think you could let go of this one for a few hours with his boys?" he muttered, gesturing to his friend.
Lynn smiled and looked up at Aiden, "If he wants to?" she breathed, "I wouldn't mind."

Caden rolled his eyes at her, "You don't want to go around kissing dirty Russians, dahlin." he breathed, "You have no idea where his mouth has been."

Aiden's lips pulled up in a grin as he nodded, leaning in to plant a sweet kiss on Lynn's lips, "I'll be back later," he breathed, "But I can't guarantee how stable I'll be with those two."

Anna's plump lips pulled into a slight pout, "But I like kissing Micah," she muttered, looking up at her best friend through her thick lashes, "Nobody else wants to kiss me."

Lynn rolled her pretty eyes, "Have fun and don't get killed." she breathed, "And I expect my present when you get back." she said, a sort of wickedness coming into her gaze before she turned to saunter off into her party.
Kiran made a face to himself, obviously pretending he had no idea what his mother was talking about, "Ready to go?"

Micah grinned at this, "I'm sure everyone wants to kiss you but I'm the only one you want to kiss back." he breathed, his pretty green eyes smoldering.

Aiden gave a slight nod, "Booze, drugs and strippers?" he breathed, grinning widely as he started for the door; already hearing Caleb fire up the engine of his Lamborghini.

Anna bit her bottom lip again as she looked up at the Russian, "Something like that," she breathed, holding her hand out for his.

"Of course." Kiran grinned, walking out beside him, "Is there really any other way to hang with your boys?" he muttered.

Micah took her hand, bringing it to his lips to kiss her knuckles before he began tugging her towards his favorite coat closet.

"Not really," Aiden breathed, still grinning as he moved to take the shotgun seat in the Lamborghini; the monster roaring as Caleb breathed a laugh behind the wheel, obviously enjoying his car.

Anna moistened her lips; a sweet sensation starting in her belly as she let him tug her all he wanted.

Kiran grinned to himself as he slid into the back, not even bothering with his seat belt as he leaned forward against their seats, "Shall we get this party started, brothers?" he breathed, reaching into his coat for a silver flask of whiskey and taking a long sip.

Micah led her into the closet and shot the door behind them before he pressed her up against it and kissed her deeply and most thoroughly.

Caleb grinned widely at this; holding his hand out for the bottle as he began to pull away from Maximus' mansion, obviously very excited to set the city on fire with his brothers.
Aiden ran his fingers over his hair as he reached over to turn on the radio; AC/DC blasting through the speakers as he grinned, "Where to first?"

Anna made a sweet noise against his mouth; a warm sensation blossoming in her abdomen as she raised her hands to unbutton his shirt; having missed the feel of her favorite cannibal.

Kiran passed him the flask as he thought a moment, "There's this strip club I found when I got back into town, the women are exotic and so goddamn beautiful." he said a shiver moving up his spine, "I think it's the perfect place to start."

Micah grabbed her wrists in on hand and pinned them above her pretty head as he moved his face to place hot kisses along her throat before he began slowly dropping to his knees, running his hands all over her.

Caleb's grin widened at this before he took a long swig and passed the bottle onto Aiden, "Where were you anyways?" he muttered, glancing at his brother in the rear view mirror.

Anna bit her bottom lip in a pleasurable manner as she tilted her pretty head back against the door; her mind turning into fluff as she shut her eyes, simply savoring his touch as a shiver moved over her skin.

Kiran shrugged, "Here and there." he muttered, grinning to himself, "I've been off radar, killing people, drinking, having mindless sex, you know, the usual." he breathed.

Micah ran his hand down her abdomen as he hit his knees, he reached under her dress to tear about her panties before he lowered his head to kiss her more naughty parts...

"Living for both of us then?" Caleb breathed, smirking as he had the Lamborghini roar down the street and Aiden passed the bottle back to Kiran.

.. Anna bit back a scream; drawing blood from her lip with the effort as she curled her fingers against the door, breathing his name as ecstasy exploded in her abdomen and had her tighten around him, shuddering.

"Of course." Kiran breathed, taking a longer sip of the whiskey as the strip club came into view, "Mm, are you ready for a night we probably won't remember in the morning?" he grinned.

Micah slammed into her a last time, gripping her hips as pleasure spread through his abdomen and he kissed her shoulders and neck.

"Ready," Caleb and Aiden breathed almost simultaneously; wide grin spreading across both of their pretty faces before Caleb pulled the Aventador up to the club and killed the engine.

Anna's lips parted with a gasp before she ran her tongue over her lips; the metallic taste of blood coating her tongue for a very brief moment before she turned her head to look at him, a dreamy look in her light eyes as she smiled, "I think I remember why I was so happy to see you," she breathed.

Kiran grinned even wider at this as he pushed open the car door and slipped out, biting his lip hard as he studied the decent high end looking strip club, remembering all the beauties he'd seen a few days ago, "Oh, you boys are going to love this place." he muttered, all ready starting for the entrance.

"How could you forget?" Micah breathed, nuzzling his face against her neck.

Caleb breathed a laugh as he slid out of the car; Aiden quickly following as they started after Kiran and Aiden bit his bottom lip, "Let's just agree that whatever happens tonight, stays between us, yeah?" he breathed.

Anna made a sweet noise at this as she shut her eyes again, "Must have been amnesia," she breathed, smiling still, "You know, you haven't bitten me in years."

Kiran rolled his eyes, "Nothing's coming out of my mouth but my mom has a nose like a goddamn blood hound." he muttered, teasing a bit as he pulled open the door, cocking his head at all the pretty women walking around mostly naked.

Micah grinned, "You haven't been free in years." he muttered, biting her shoulder gently even though it was so unlike himself to be gentle at all.

Caleb bit his bottom lip hard as his gaze swept over the sight before them and he shuddered, "Damn," he breathed, glancing over at his best friend, "I love you, man."

"Since when did that stop you?" Anna breathed, a soft smile curving her pretty lips.

Kiran grinned wickedly, "Oh, I know." he breathed, stepping inside as he gestured to a butterscotch blond, "She is...her tongue..." he shuddered, "I'm paying so pick whatever you want boys but be sure to get her at least once."

Micah shrugged, "I don't know." he muttered, pulling back from her to fix his slacks.

Caleb couldn't help but grin even wider at this as he began to search the moving catalogue, his gaze finally falling onto a large-chested red-head and he bit his lip hard as he looked her over, "I think I found my first choice."
Aiden bit the inside of his cheek, "I think I'll stick to the booze and drugs tonight," he breathed, a shiver moving up his spine.

Anna released a breath as she turned, leaning against the door as she fixed her dress, "I'm glad you were here tonight, Micah," she breathed, a soft smile curving her lips as she pushed away from the door and got on the front of her heels to kiss his pretty mouth before she turned away from him to open the door.

Kiran raised a brow at his brother, "There are beautiful women all around you and you want to stick to the booze and the drugs?" he muttered, "I will not stand for that, you're with us, so just pick a girl," he said, gesturing to an exotic olive skinned brunette, "Isn't she beautiful? Why would you want to deny her?"

Micah smiled to himself, "So am I." he muttered,, biting his lip as he watched her for a moment.

Aiden rolled his eyes at Kiran before he sighed, "Fine," he muttered, gesturing to his bros as he smirked, "But I'm doing her for you two."

Anna glanced over her shoulder at him, that soft smile still playing on her lips before she stepped outside and began into the crowd to find her mama Lynn; a warm feeling settled in her chest as she savored the taste of Micah on her lips.

Kiran rolled his eyes, "Of course you are, bro." he muttered, "Just enjoy." he said, his gaze flickering around until he found a very curvy strawberry blond stripper with amazing boobies, "I think I found my girl." he breathed, biting his lip hard.

Lynn stood in the middle of the dance floor, a wide grin on her pretty face and a tiara of diamonds and brilliant red rubies as servers brought twenty large cakes out onto the floor, ten on either side of the room as her guests looked on.

"Let's do this," Caleb breathed, a wicked grin curving his handsome lips as he started for his redhead and Aiden rolled his eyes once more before he started for the exotic beauty Kiran had indicated.

Anna made a way out to the end of the crowd where she could watch Lynnie; her smile widening as she crossed her arms under her boobies.

Kiran grinned wickedly as he began towards his strawberry blond, already having a good feeling about tonight.

Lynn spotted Anna in the crowd and raised her hand to finger-wave to her when the band started up and very beautiful men popped up from each cake in a shower of frosting and began to sing Happy Birthday.

Hours later - Maximus' mansion..
Caleb Vladislav finally got the door open to Maximus' house; trying not to make too much noise when he entered, before he stumbled, immediately falling onto his ass and breaking into a loud, hearty laugh that rang through the entire house before Aiden stumbled in after him, shushing him almost as loudly.

Anna Thomas yawned; an absolutely sleepy, adorable look on her pretty face when she shut the door to the room Maximus had given her for the night, after she had said goodnight to the boys and the birthday girl. She moistened her lips before she slid out of her silky gown and stepped out of her Louboutins, crawling naked into bed and slipping under the sheets before she shut her eyes, sighing softly.

Kiran shook his head as he stumbled in last, "People are sleepy." he whispered loudly to be an an actual whisper as he rolled his eyes and swaggered past them towards the stairs "There are so many." he mumbled as Lynnie appeared at the top of the staircase, a sweet smile on her plump lips, "Did you boys have fun?" she breathed, fiddling with the ties of her full-length black robe.

Caleb tilted his head back on the floor, having decided not to get up again as a wide grin spread across his lips, "Soooo much fun," he slurred, gesturing between his legs, "I've had so much sex, Lynnie."
Aiden couldn't help but laugh at this as he leaned against the door, the look on his face saying more than words.

Lynn rolled her pretty eyes as she began descending the stairs, "Of course you did," she breathed, "But how much money did you spend?" she teased, a wicked grin curving her lips as her gaze flickered to Aiden, "I hope you have energy for one last show." she muttered, spreading open her black robe to show him the black lingerie she had on that looked like nothing more than string on her beautiful body and hardly covered anything.

"See you later, bros," Aiden said immediately, his grin never wavering as he began towards Lynnie, not even noticing the way Caleb's jaw had dropped.

Lynn breathed a soft laugh, "Mm, I guess you do." she muttered, leaving her robe open as she held out her hand for his.

Kiran refused to look back as he stumbled up the staircase, wondering if Anna was sleeping yet.

Aiden grinned even wider at this, but he didn't say anything; stumbling up the stairs until he took her hand, allowing her to lead him to safety.

Anna laid on her belly in bed; the sheet barely covering any of her as she had her pretty face buried in the pillow, making cute little noises as she slept peacefully.

Lynn smiled to herself as she led him upstairs to her bedroom and pushed him down on her bed as soon as they neared it before she stepped back to drop her robe and begin undressing him.

Kiran bit his lip, focusing for a moment before he found Anna, he smiled to himself as he pushed open, studying her beautiful sleeping form for a moment before starting towards her.

Aiden made a noise, biting his bottom lip as he watched her closely, "You're so goddamn hoot," he slurred, grinning widely at her as he felt himself harden already...

Anna made a sweet noise; as if she felt him there in her sleep, but she didn't wake, merely turning her face a little so only her cheek was on the pillow.

Noon-the next day...
Lynn bit her lip as she got out mugs for coffee and set them on the table in front of Caleb, Aiden, Kiran, and Anna, "There's something I have to talk to you all about." she said softly, looking sleepy and pretty in Aiden's shirt with her curls all messy from sex and sleep; she turned away from them to place the carafe of hot coffee on the table with cream and all kinds of sugar so they could make it themselves before she moved to settle into Aiden's lap.

Aiden slid his arm around Lynnie; giving her a gentle squeeze without a word as Caleb pursed his lips, looking absolutely hung over from last night as he poured himself a cup of coffee, glancing up at her, "What is it?" he muttered.

Lynn bit her lip hard as she leaned back against Aiden's chest, "Last night, Eliya gave me a pearl necklace, each pearl was black and swirling, it would have been beautiful." she started, "She slipped it around my neck, she smiled, and everything and then she told me that each pearl held the soul of one of my children and that if I was good one would shatter and they would be brought back but if I wasn't, their souls would die." she mumbled, her throat getting a little tight, "Something is wrong with her." she breathed.

Caleb's jaw tightened for a moment as he leaned back in his seat, drumming his fingers against his mug as he sighed, "We have to get rid of her," he muttered, frowning when Anna made a noise, "What do you mean, 'get rid of her'?" she breathed, frowning deeply at him as he met her gaze, "She was your wife, the mother of your children, Caleb, you can't just kill her."
Caleb arched a high brow at her, pursing his lips and thinking over his words carefully before he spoke, "Anna, she took the Throne from me, snatched my soul and sent my brothers to die in a wasteland," he breathed, something almost soft about the way he said it, "She threatens the ones closest to her and turned Claudia, the strongest woman I know, into her own little chihuahua. She's lost her fucking mind."

"There's more." Lynn breathed, "I told Caden about the necklace and he got upset, he, William, and Micah left to deal with her and I asked Maximus earlier, they haven't come back." she muttered, frowning deeply.
Kiran's gaze darkened, "Then Caleb is right, we have to do something, it isn't just Claudia that she has under her spell, it's Drake, Simon, people all around us." he muttered.

Anna bit her bottom lip as she leaned back in her seat; running her fingers over her messy curls before she sighed, "We're mice in a snake pit," she breathed, Caleb making an agreeing noise to this.

Lynn swallowed hard, "What do we do?" she muttered, her stomach twisting with nerves, "She's the Queen of Hell and she's surrounded by more like Claudia." she breathed, "How do we hurt her?"

Caleb was silent for a long moment before a half-smile seemed to curve his lips, "Her children," he breathed, "We go after her precious babies.

Lynn arched a brow at this, "Some of which are yours." she breathed, tilting her head a bit, "Could you really kill them?"

Caleb raised his gaze to meet hers, "You'd be surprised of what I'm capable of, darling.

Lynn pursed her lips tight, silent for a very long moment, "If you think it'll work, I'm behind you." she muttered, dropping her gaze to the table.

"Desperate times calls for desperate measures," Aiden muttered, giving her a gentle squeeze as Caleb stood from the table, looking over all of them, "You lot should probably stay here," he breathed, turning to leave.

Two Days Later...
Eliya wore white, the woman looked as beautiful as a bride in her tight, sleeveless pencil dress, her sparkling Louboutins coming together with a click as she appeared in Maximus' foyer, she could all ready hear Lynn's screams as every one of her pretty black peals popped. Eliya seemed cold, her gaze shimmering obsidian, her curls spilling out around her young, pretty face but her lips were pursed as she waited for Caleb, knowing he would feel her.

Caleb Vladislav was at the top of the stairs within moments; a devil dressed in his black Armani suit, a finely carved knife in his hand as he looked over the Queen of Hell, a wicked grin curving his lips, "Took you long enough."

"Sorry to keep you waiting, love, I was busy." Eliya breathed as she moved one of her arms from behind her and dropped Drake Hawthorne's head to the floor where it landed with a sick little plop.

Caleb's jaw tightened, but his eyes remained cold as his gaze shifted to Drake's head for a very brief moment before he began to descend the stairs, "How sweet," he breathed, "I kill your precious little babies and you take one of Lynn's?" he muttered, meeting her gaze once more.

Eliya arched a brow, "I took all of them." she muttered, "Do you hear her screams? All those little souls are dying, children for children, a mother's pain for another's." she breathed, her face twisting for a moment with as if she were hurt before disappearing behind the black mask of her gaze.

Caleb soon reached the floor, moving towards her and stopping only a few good feet from her, cocking his head a bit to the side, "It's funny," he started, under his breath, "How I thought that if I took those children away from you, you'd finally stand down," he muttered, pursing his lips, "I thought you were gonna weep and beg me to stop, but then I realized.." he breathed, a wicked grin curving his lips, "I was slaughtering the wrong children."

Eliya tilted her head back to look up at him, "You wouldn't dare." She said, something flickering in the obsidian of her gaze, something that might have been actual fear, "Not our children."

Caleb's grin simply widened at this as he held his hand out towards the stairs, his light eyes so icy cold it could have frozen Hell as he called for his little girl, "Contessa, darling, come say hello to your mother."

Tessa Hawthorne bit her lip as she appeared on the stairs, "Hello mother." she said softly, descending to take her father's hands.
Something seemed to change in Eliya's face as she took a step back, "You wouldn't do it." she said through her teeth, "Not to her."

Caleb arched a brow at the Queen, the wickedness of his smile almost sickening as he guided Tessa to stand in front of him, facing her mother, "What's would be more appropriate than if I slit the throat of your favorite?" he breathed, cocking his head a bit to the other side, "Are you scared yet? You should be."

Eliya seemed to choke on her own words as her throat tightened, "Please, don't." she breathed as her back hit the front door and she began to slide to the floor, "I will concede but not like this." she whispered, her black eyes shimmering like two pools of soul more than glass, "An hour, the throne room," she breathed before she disappeared.

Caleb exhaled; the tension seeming to leave his shoulders as he bent his head to kiss the top of Contessa's pretty head, "You did amazingly, baby," he breathed.

Tessa sighed, "What if she hadn't conceded?" she mumbled, looking up at her father.

An hour later - The Throne Room of Hell..
Caleb appeared in his old throne room, something dark about his cold gaze as he looked over everything; expecting to find himself in an ambush, but he remained still and quiet, awaiting the Queen to greet him.

Eliya was no where to be seen, Lilith sat the throne of Hell, "She isn't here, Caleb." she breathed, "She had me take her to Eden to wait for you." the Mother of Hell spoke softly and almost sadly as if she all ready knew the outcome of this fight, "I would take you myself but honestly, I hope you die." she said and disappeared.

Caleb's lips formed into a smirk before he shut his eyes; finding all of this a little amusing before he disappeared to Eden.

Eliya stood in the Garden, she wore a softer cream colored dress, her pretty eyes shining with their natural pools of green and blue, she had her back to him, no power radiating from her, not even the shine of immortality, almost as if she were human.

"What's this about, Eliya?" Caleb called out to her, not moving any closer; looking like a damn near misfit in the Garden, dressed in all black.

Eliya's throat tightened as she turned to face him, she was silent as she moved towards him, getting down on her knees in front of him, she placed a ring before his feet, it was gold and silver metal entwined together, melded in an eternal embrace, two black diamonds flickering, two souls pieced together, she lowered her head until her forward touched earth, "I am ready to die now." she breathed, shutting her eyes tight.

Caleb looked down at her, his lips twisting into a frown as he studied the back of her head, "I don't want to kill you," he said, the knife still clutched tightly in his hand, "Stand. Now."

Eliya raised her head slowly to look up at him, looking so young it was nearly painful as if she were that sixteen year old girl he'd once met at a party twenty-one years ago, she squinted as the sun bore down on her face but she said nothing as she stood slowly.

Caleb's gaze followed her all the way, something incredibly pained in his light eyes as they bore into hers, "You betrayed me," he breathed, "In every sense of the goddamn word; you betrayed me, Eliya, even though I wronged you, how could you ever do this to me?" he breathed, shaking his head at her before he reached out to curl his fingers around her throat, his lips twisting as his eyes began to sting painfully, "I loved you."

Eliya studied his face, not even reaching up to stop him if should try to strangle her, "I always love you, Caleb." she managed, "It never stopped, it was consistent, it flowed like blood through my veins but I was angry and I saw you destroying yourself over and over again, throwing me away every time and I could not be thrown away this time," her eyes burned, "I could not watch you kill yourself again, I took the throne, I took your burdens, and I took away myself and yet you still died, you let yourself die, and I mourned every hour, every day, losing myself, my own soul twisting and turning against me until there was nothing left to twist, nothing left to turn." she breathed, hot tears burning down her cheeks, "And now I know that you hate me and I don't want to live if you hate me."

Caleb's jaw clenched, but he said nothing at first as he let go of her throat and instead moved his hands to frame her pretty face between them, "You foolish little girl," he breathed, bending his head to press his lips against hers, kissing her deeply before he pulled back to look at her again, "Are you really that moronically idiotic that you would let yourself die because the man you should hate more than anything else in the world left you?" he muttered, shaking his head, "I will always love you, Eliya, always. It's seared into my heart, even though it's so goddamn dead now, it's stabled to my soul and I will never forget that, I will always find it again, because the man I am, this horrible person that stands before you now, is here because you never let go of me, do you understand that?" he said through his teeth, his gaze scrutinizing her face, "You should be running away from me."

Eliya shook her head, feeling more tears burn down his face, "Don't you understand, Caleb? Don't you understand? I can't run away from you." she breathed, reaching up to curl her fingers in his shirt, "This man I love, this man is inside of me, he's in my soul, and I love him, I love you, it's always been, it always will be, and I can't let go, I can't." she whispered, "If you're a monster, Caleb, I'll be a monster too." she reached up to put her arms around him, her fingers curling against his shoulders as if she could keep him just like that with her, "You're the only one running away, Caleb, you run away from me and I chase you, I always chase, don't you understand?" she muttered, her eyes searching his, "Don't you understand how much I need you? I need you."

Caleb's brows pulled together in a deep frown as his gaze flickered over her face, "I'll hurt you," he breathed, "Every day, for the rest of your life, I'll hurt you," he whispered, "How can you be okay with that?"

"Because I love you." Eliya whispered, "And I've accepted every part of you." she breathed, leaning up to press her lips against his.

Caleb shut his eyes tight; the expression on his face showing exactly how painful it was for him as he pressed his lips against hers, running his fingers up her shoulder to grab the back of her in a loving manner. He kissed her deeper, more lovingly every second before he brought his blade between them and shoved it into her chest; tears slipping from his closed lids as he tightened his hold on her so she couldn't break the kiss and he twisted his blade.

Eliya made a pained noise against his lips, feeling blood coat her tongue as a numbness began to fill her and her legs felt like rubber as they slid from under her, her lids fluttering in one last attempt to see him before her vision faded to black.

Caleb's bloodied hands dropped to his sides when he opened his eyes again to look at her; a sickening feeling starting in his chest and spreading throughout his body as he swallowed hard, reaching up to wipe the tears from his eyes with the back of his hand before he was gone, disappearing back to his apartment in New York.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Five Years Later; New New York...
Lynn stood at her panoramic window for a moment, she looked beautiful in her tight one shouldered red dress, her thick curls hanging loosely down her back, a little smile graced her lips as she turned to look over her penthouse apartment, filled to the brim with loved ones and friends but after five years, the missing were still plain to see; she sighed, not letting herself dwell on it as her gaze found little Contessa Walker, pregnant with her and Silas' second child and glowing, the kids kept getting older but they all still looked so young.

Eliya St. Claire stood in the service elevator with all the other lowly servers for another rich person's party, she sighed, feeling like a stuffed penguin in her dark slacks, black vest over white blouse, and red bow tie, her pretty curls pulled back out of her face into a tight pony tail; her pretty lips twisted as the elevator opened and they were let into the kitchen to set up, it all sort of blurred together before Eliya found herself being sent out with a tray full of amber-filled glasses.

Caleb scrunched up his lovely nose as he grabbed a double Jack Daniels from the table littered with booze before he turned to his brother, his brow raised, "Why did you force me here again?" he mumbled, wrinkling his nose even more, "I could be getting a blow job right now, jus' saying."

Kiran made a face at his best friend, "Because it's our kids, having more babies." he muttered, "You should be...overcome with joy my son got your daughter pregnant, just sayin'." he grinned as the pretty, little waitresses came around with their own trays of drinks, "Look, you might get lucky still."

Caleb's gaze moved over the little waitresses as he took a sip from his drink, "I'm not hittin' a waitress if you're not," he muttered, returning his gaze to Kiran's face.

Kiran rolled his eyes, "I'm on my best behavior," he raised a brow, "Anna's here, fifty-fifty, I'm not going home alone, if that bombs, we're taking five waitresses back to the loft and having our own goddamn party." he muttered, grabbing a drink from a passing waitress.

Caleb cocked his head a bit to the side, "Well, I'll pray to God that your ex-wife stopped being a slut, then," he breathed, grinning wickedly at his brother as he thought of the party they could have by themselves.

Kiran rolled his eyes, "Just in case, which ones are we taking home?" he muttered, scanning the crowd of them, "There are some rather hot ones here, tonight."

"It's all about the ass, bro," Caleb mumbled, dropping his gaze from the faces of the waitresses to their backsides before he cocked his head a bit to the side, his gaze falling onto a perfectly shaped, modelesque ass and he bit his bottom lip, "That one," he breathed, slowly moving towards his targeted victim and planting his hand firmly on her ass before he bent his head to whisper his dirtiest pick-up line into her ear.

Eliya tensed, her pretty lips twisted into a scowl as if she were used to men whispering all kinds of things in her ear with their hands on her ass, she grabbed one of the drinks off of her tray, "You know, sir," she started, not even going to bother to look back, "I think you need a drink." she muttered, whirling away from him to throw the amber-liquid right in his face.

Caleb gritted his teeth as soon as he felt the wetness on his face and he raised his hand to wipe at his eyes before he opened his mouth to say something; leaving it there as he stared at her, "Either that or I need to stop drinking," he mumbled, blinking slowly as he scrutinized the girl's face.

Eliya let out her breath, feeling the eyes of her co-workers and some of the party guests on her as she studied the man's face, a frown on her pretty lips, "Idiots like you make me want to quit my job." she grumbled, feeling her face get hot, "And you were cute too, Mr. Hands, next time ask a girl out politely instead of...man-handling her and talking nasty, all you rich, playboys are the same." she muttered, sounding flustered and a bit nervous.

Caleb bit his bottom lip as he ran his fingers over his hair, suddenly looking extremely confused as he gave a slight nod, "Yeah, sorry," he mumbled, digging into his pocket for a hundred before he took her hand, quickly stuffing the bill into her palm before she could object and he gestured to her, "Holy shit," he breathed, turning and heading uncharacteristically fast towards the terrace.

Kiran blinked slowly, having watched the whole damn thing, "Holy shit." he muttered to himself as he started after his bro, "Did you see her face?" he breathed as he reached him, "It can't be her, is it?" he asked, shaking his head as he was still a bit surprised.
Eliya frowned to herself as she looked down at the hundred bill in her hand, for a moment trying to decipher the motives of rich playboys before she shrugged, stuffing the bill in her pocket and turning to continue her job.

"Sure as hell sounded like her," Caleb said, stepping outside quickly before he downed his drink and took a deep breath as he looked at his brother, "She threw a drink in my face."
Anna bit her bottom lip as she leaned against the wall, looking over the crowd of family and friends there before she smiled, her cell automatically reaching Micah's voice mail, "Hey, it's Anna," she breathed, "Listen, I'm at Tessa's baby shower, but I was thinking you should come over later and keep me company," she muttered, biting her lip once more, "I've got pills and Silence of The Lambs and I'm bent on letting your nephew prove himself tonight, since I'm not taking him home, so you can't turn down my super-awesome company, okay? I'll see you later," she said before hanging up and starting towards the doors to the terrace.

Kiran bit his lip, "I know." he said, "She's also dressed like a waitress," he paused for a moment, "Maybe I can smooth things over and get her to come over tonight so you can talk, I'll even tell Anna it might be Eliya and she'll understand, I'll be there for you bro, whatever you want to do."

Caleb bit his bottom lip as he glanced back inside, "Unless this is her chance to walk away," he mumbled, seeing Anna through the door when she spotted them and immediately steered in a different direction.

Kiran bit his lip, "Maybe." he muttered, "Or maybe it's Fate or God or whatever telling you this is your second, upteenth, whatever chance." he breathed, "Think about it, what are the odds she showed up here?"

Eliya bit her lip as she walked through the party, feeling eyes widen as they stared at her, she felt her face getting hot again and she handed her tray off to a fellow waitress before she escaped down the hallway to the bathroom; she let the air out of her lungs after shutting and locking the door. Elle closed her eyes for a moment, the playboy's pretty face creeping up behind her lids and she felt a tingle dance up her spine, she wondered what it meant, if it meant he was familiar or if she would run the other way entirely. She calmed her racing heart and moved towards the sink to splash cold water on her pretty face, feeling the hundred crinkle in her vest pocket; she made a face to herself as she reached for it, it felt so heavy and so undeserved as she curled her fingers around it, the playboy had practically shoved it into her hand after getting both frisky and then weird on her. She watched herself wrinkle her nose in the mirror, deciding she didn't want the damn hundred even if it was extra-rent money, next she saw the man she'd simply throw it back and tell him to buy some manners, she smirked at the thought and nodded to herself before she turned to leave the bathroom.

Micah pursed his lips as he finished listening to Anna's message, he smiled a bit to himself as he dialed her number to call her back.

Caleb pursed his lips tightly together for a moment before he sighed, "Slim," he breathed, rubbing his forehead, "I guess I should give it a shot, huh?"

Anna felt the buzzing against her thigh before she slid her fingers into her pocket to take out her cellphone, a soft smile curving her lips before she picked up, "Hello, Mister Lecter," she breathed, trying to sound very Clarice-like.

Kiran nodded, "If after twenty-six years, guys like us are still being given more chances to make it better than absolutely." he breathed, glancing up to see that Eliya was stalking towards them.

Micah rolled his eyes, "You are so odd." he breathed, "You know, they used to call me that as an insult when I was younger?"

Caleb bit his bottom lip as he followed his brother's gaze; taking a breath as if he needed to gather courage before addressing the girl again.

Anna's plump lips formed into a slight pout at this as she ran her fingers over her hair, "But you know I say it with nothing but love," she breathed.

"Hey, Playboy." Eliya started, having gathered courage all the way to the terrace, she held up the hundred, "I think you should take this and buy yourself some manners." she breathed, grabbing the front of his pants and stuffing it down them before she turned quickly to walk away before her bravado could dissipate into embarrassment when the playboy's friend called out, "Hey, sweetheart, you got a name?"

"Right." Micah muttered, rolling his eyes to himself, "You called for sex, right?"

Caleb couldn't help the grin that curved his lips as he took the hundred out of his slacks; obviously more than entertained by the waitress' temper as he watched her.

Anna bit her bottom lip, "Something like that," she breathed, "Where are you?"

Eliya stopped, knowing it was company policy to present your name to the customers, but she really did hate the name tag, no one remembered the face of a girl carrying trays; she sighed, turning around slowly as she fished her name tag from her pocket and pinned it to the front of her vest, she pointed to it, "El-eey-a." she sounded it out so of they said her name they at least wouldn't butcher it. She watched Playboy's friend turn to him and grin as if it was his move.

"Getting a shipment at the docks." Micah mumbled.

Caleb ran his fingers over his hair; that crooked half-grin curving his handsome lips as he looked her over, "Listen. El-eey-a," he said, trying to be amusing as he moved closer to him, "What happened before, that was a jerk move and I apologize," he breathed, nothing but sincerity in his gaze, "Let me make it up to you."

Anna smiled a bit to herself, "When you're done, you should stop by the party; Silas asked for you too," she breathed, taking a sip of her drink.

Eliya blinked slowly, feeling a little caught off guard, "Uh.." she felt her cheeks getting flushed as that tingly feeling moved up her spine, "I don't know even know your name, playboy." she managed.

"All right." Micah muttered, pausing for a moment, "I need to ask you something, Anna, be honest with me."

Caleb felt a smile curve his lips as he slid his hands into the pockets of his slacks, "I'm Caleb," he breathed, giving a slight shrug of his shoulders before he grinned, "Besides, you already said I was cute, so it'd be terrible manners to turn me down."

"Shoot," Anna breathed, pursing her lips.

Eliya bit her lip hard, "Fine, you can buy me a drink after work." she breathed, "But no touching." she said, narrowing her eyes at him pointedly.

"Why do you always call me?" he asked softly.

Caleb took his hands out of his pockets and held them up in a placating manner as he put on his most serious face, "I'll keep em to myself, I swear," he breathed, unable to keep from grinning.

Anna's brows pulled together a little as she moved to take a seat not too far from the bar, "Because I enjoy your company," she breathed, "I like to consider us friends, Micah, you know?"

Eliya couldn't help the slight smile twisting her lips, "I'll meet you in the parking garage after the party." she breathed before she turned to walk back inside wondering what in the hell she'd just agreed to.
Kiran grinned at this, "That was pretty adorable, bro."

"Yes, but all we do is hang out and then have sex." Micah breathed, pinching the bridge of his news between his fingers, "Are we really friends?"

Caleb glanced over his shoulder at his brother, grinning even wider, "Who knew I could be a nice guy?" he muttered, making a face.

Anna bit her bottom lip, "What else would we be?" she muttered, leaning back in her seat.

"I hope it lasts." Kiran mused, "I don't think she'd want that drink if you fondled anymore waitresses tonight, playboy." he teased, grinning.

"I don't know." Micah muttered, "Ask Kiran." he said and hung up.

Caleb rolled his eyes at his brother, but he didn't say anything; silent until he saw Anna, stalking towards them before she was close enough to Kiran and she threw her drink in his pretty face, "How dare you, Kiran Hawthorne?" she said through her teeth, "You called Micah?"

Kiran blinked slowly, raising his hand to wipe at his face, "Yeah, I did." he muttered, his pretty violet-silver eyes darkening, "I didn't do anything wrong, Anna, I didn't hurt you this time, but I'm the only one who seems to be working his ass off to be in this relationship, you haven't even tried because you're always off fucking my uncle." he said through his teeth, "You've already decided, Anna, but you're too cowardly to say it to my face." he breathed, his voice getting lower as he looked her in the eye, "Set me free, Anna, just let me go, here, now, forever."

Anna looked him straight in the eye; her light gaze shimmering before her lips twisted, "Enjoy your freedom, Nicky," she breathed, turning to leave the terrace and the party.

After the Party...
Eliya St. Claire waited near the exit of the parking garage, she had changed out of her work clothes into a well-fitted white tank top and a pair of hip-hugging skinny jeans over ballet flats, her bag slung across her shoulders as she waited for Playboy, reaching up to play with her now loosed curls.

Caleb bit his lip as he let the Lamborghini roar into the parking area, letting the monster fill the entire space as he pulled up in front of Eliya; a grin curving his lips as he looked her over, "Get in," he called.

Eliya bit her lip as she moved around the car, her brow arched as she studied it, "Wow." she breathed, sliding into the passenger seat, "I think this is the most expensive car I've ever sat in." she mumbled, looking up at him quite impressed.

"I think I'll take that as a compliment," Caleb breathed, smiling at her, "Where do you wanna go?"

Eliya thought for a moment, "Well, we usually go to this nice bar by my university?" she mumbled, tilting her pretty head up at him.

Caleb nodded slightly, "Sounds good," he breathed, gesturing for her to punch in the address on the GPS.

Later that night - Underground Rave Club, New New York..
Anna slid through the crowd littering the dance floor of the club; every once in a while shutting her eyes to feel her heart pounding in rhythm with the bass and the euphoric substance spreading through her veins and having her entire body buzz. She hardly even felt it when Tommy Ricci slid his arm around her waist and began jumping up and down like a monkey on ecstasy, obviously feeling the music even more than she did when he bent his head to kiss the top of her pretty head, laughing his ass off when she tilted her head back against his shoulder, her lids fluttering as she laughed; so far from this world already.

Eliya leaned forward to put it in the address before leaned back in her seat again, stretching out her not so long legs, "So, is this something you usually do?" she mumbled, "Make an ass out of yourself and fix it with booze?"

"Not exactly," Caleb breathed, glancing over at her while he pressed the speeder to the floor, "I like to vary between my techniques," he muttered, a playful grin curving his lips.

Eliya raised a brow this, "Oh and what if this technique hadn't worked, would you have challenge and pursued or choose another poor waitress?" she breathed, turning in her seat to face him, genuinely curious.

Caleb pursed his lips as he thought about this, "I would have shown up with roses at your workplace everyday until you agreed to go out with me," he breathed, grinning still.

Eliya grinned at this, "I like a guy who'll work for it, makes me feel worth it." she breathed, "Maybe I'll even let you take me out on a real date one day."

Caleb couldn't help but smile at this, "I'll look forward to it," he muttered, biting his bottom lip as he drove faster.

Eliya grinned more at this, "You know you seem much more charming than a guy who needs to grab onto a girl's ass and whisper such dirty things to her." she muttered, giving a slender shrug, "But then again, this could all be an act to get into my panties."

Caleb scrunched up his lovely nose at this, "I swore I wouldn't touch you," he muttered, giving a slight nod, "Besides, what's the achievement in sleeping with a woman if you had to pretend to be someone else to get her?"

Eliya bit her lip, "I suppose." she mumbled, cocking her head to study his profile, "But I think there's more to you and you just haven't told me about yet, if ever."

Caleb pursed his lips once more as he glanced over at her; driving at a dangerously high speed now and not even paying attention to the road, "Let's make a deal."

Eliya raised a brow, cocking her head a little, "What kind of deal?" she mumbled.

Caleb kept his gaze on her while still managing to steer around a Toyota driving way too slow for him before he smiled, "Tonight, you can ask me anything," he breathed, "Anything. And I promise I'll answer honestly."

Tommy Ricci grinned wickedly at his pretend little sister as he held up another little pink pill between his fingers, "Open uuuup," he sang, laughing when she opened her pretty mouth wide and stuck her tongue out. He put the little pill on her tongue, followed by a stamp with Donald Duck on it and she closed her mouth; pressing them up against her palate before she grinned, feeling like she was being electrocuted by buzzing stars as her pupils filled out the green in her light eyes, making them black as the goddamn Pit as she began to stomp and dance with her pretend brother again.

Eliya blinked slowly, feeling a tingle wrap up her spine, "Why?" she mumbled, "I mean, I'm a stranger, you'd just tell all your secrets to a stranger?"

Caleb nodded slightly, "I'm expanding my horizon, so to speak," he breathed, finally turning his gaze back to the road.

Eliya was silent for a moment, "You become more fascinating every time you open your mouth." she breathed, studying him closely, "First question then, something easy, where were you born?"

"St. Petersburg," Caleb muttered, his gaze still on the road as he smiled a bit to himself.

"Russia?" Eliya breathed, pausing to think of another question, "Do you have a job?"

Caleb gave a slight nod, "I'm in the military," he said softly.

Eliya's gaze widened a little, "You're in the military?" she breathed, "What do you do? What branch? Are you a soldier?" she inquired, her cheeks flushing when she realized she was talking too fast, "Sorry."

Caleb's smile widened at this, obviously finding her awfully cute like this as he glanced over at her, "It's like Black-Ops. There's this sort of civil war going on in the North and we're taking care of it."

Eliya arched both of her brows in a sort of impressed look, "Wow, so you can like kill a guy with your thumbs or something, right?" she breathed.

Caleb scoffed, grinning to himself as he gave a shrug of his shoulders, "Something like that, yeah," he breathed.

Eliya's pretty mismatched eyes shimmered and darkened, "That's kind of sexy." she breathed, "Do you have the uniform or something?" she muttered, biting her lip when the thoughts in her pretty head made her blush a deeper scarlet and she dropped her gaze, "Uh, I mean, well, you'd have to have a uniform, so next question... how old are you?"

Caleb bit the inside of his cheek for moment, "Twenty-two," he breathed, trying not to smile too widely at her from her little ramble.

Eliya bit her lip, smiling a bit softly, "So, at twenty-two, in the military, a playboy like yourself, have you ever been in love?" she asked softly.

"Once," Caleb breathed, his jaw tightening some, "But it didn't work out, so.."

Eliya frowned a little, "I'm sorry." she mumbled, biting her lip again, "Was the break really awful?" she breathed, making a face to herself as he probably didn't want to talk about this, "I can pick a different question, just let me think." she muttered.

"No, it's okay," Caleb muttered, "She passed away a few years back before I got a chance to make things up to her."

Eliya's frown deepened, "I'm really sorry." she breathed, "That sounds so awful," she mumbled, feeling almost terrible for asking, "I don't think I've ever been in love, if I have I don't remember, I'm kind of...complicated." she said softly, making a face to herself.

"How so?" Caleb breathed, glancing over at her again, "If you don't mind me asking."

Eliya bit her lip, "Well, six months ago, I woke up from a coma and I didn't even know my own name." she breathed, her lips twisting, "A doctor had to tell me who I was and all she even knew about me was that I was a Freshman at NYU, my name, and that I'd been brought in after a really bad accident that she couldn't even tell me about." she mumbled, thinking for a moment, "It's so weird, I feel like I know so much about myself but I don't know anything, if I have a family, if I've ever been in love, who my best friend is, I don't know." she shook her head, "Complicated."

Caleb bit his bottom lip, "What are you gonna do if you don't find out?" he breathed, glancing up to see the university coming into view, "Or if your memories suddenly come back?"

Anna froze in the middle of the crowd. She felt like she couldn't move her legs anymore, as if all of the blood had sunk into them and were now running out of her toes, but somehow soaking her skin in it and it made her shudder; her entirely black eyes suddenly finding Tommy's face and her lips twisted, "I don't feel so good, Tommy," she whimpered.

Eliya bit her lip harder, "I don't know, it depends on where I am in life, if I get to a point where all that matters is tomorrow and I don't need to remember if they don't come back and if they do, it would be more like, do I go back to that life or do I decide if the one I invented is much more worth living, you know?" she mumbled.

Caleb nodded slightly, "Sounds reasonable," he muttered, glancing back at her.

Tommy cocked his head a bit at her, even though he was still bouncing, like he couldn't actually stop, "What do you mean?" he called over the music, frowning when she didn't answer him, instead raising her hand to rub at the crook of her arm, as if the drugs were trying to dig out of her veins. She didn't even react when Silas Hawthorne stood in front of her, "Mom," he called, something almost panicky in his gaze as he grabbed her face and used his thumb to look at her pupils, "Ma, what did you take?" he called even louder, frowning deeply when she didn't answer him and he shook his head, watching Tommy catch her when her legs couldn't hold her anymore and he gritted his teeth, "Get her the fuck out of here, Tommy," he yelled over the music, stepping out of the way when Tommy slid his arm protectively around his little sister and began for the exit.

"I think so." Eliya mumbled, smiling softly to herself before she pursed her lips, "My biggest fear is that someone I used to know is just gonna walk up to me and start talking about all the ways I used to be and I don't know if I could ever be that person again if I don't remember who she is, and then I have to tell em that." she muttered, "I don't want to think about it, I just want to make new memories and if the old come back, they come back."

Caleb nodded slightly, "Guess I'm not the only one expanding my horizon," he breathed, grinning at her as he pulled the Lamborghini up to the university.

Eliya felt a grin curve her lips, "I guess not." she said softly before she turned her gaze up to the university, she bit her lip, reaching into her a bag to grab a hair clip and clip back the front of her hair, leaving the rest down her shoulders, she glanced up at Caleb, "How do I look?"

Caleb killed the engine before he looked at her; his light gaze moving over her pretty face before he smiled, "Beautiful."

Eliya felt a blush grace her cheeks, that ever present tingle shivering up her spine as she dropped her gaze again, "Thank you." she breathed, biting her lip hard again.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Mon Oct 01, 2012 11:44 am

Two weeks later..
Caleb Vladislav stood at the steps of his date's brownstone; a smile playing on his lips as he looked up at her window and threw another pebble at it, "El-eey-a, come dooown," he sang, grinning widely now as he had the limousine driver honk away.

Anna sat in the middle of her bed; her relatively long, thin legs stretched out in front of her as she lined up three streaks of methamphetamine on the little mirror she'd placed on her knees.
Tommy stood in the kitchen of Anna's apartment, hearing the extremely loud dubstep music coming from her room as he dialed Lynn's number on his sister's cellphone and lit up his joint.

Eliya grinned to herself, a tingle racing up her spine as she heard him, she opened her window to peek her beautiful head out, "I'm coming." she called before she pulled back in, she shut the window as she grabbed her bags full of groceries and began out of her apartment, the most expensive pair of heels she owned clicking against the floor as she made her way down stairs to the front door, looking damn gorgeous in a navy blue, white pocadotted dress, her pretty curls straightened to fall down her shoulders, "Hi." she breathed, her pretty mismatched eyes shimmering as she stepped out onto the stoop.

Lynn pressed the heel of her Louboutin into the man's Adam's apple again, "You should really think before you speak, doll face." she said, lifting her pretty heel to crush the man's throat beneath it when Personal Jesus began to play out of the cleavage of her tight black dress, she stopped, "Excuse me," she breathed, turning as a slight smile curved her lips and she acquired her cell phone, picking up on the second ring, "Hey, sweetheart, what's up?"

Caleb's lips formed into a soft smile when she came out and he gave her an appreciative once-over, "You look beautiful, babe," he breathed, hopping up the steps to take her bags, "What's this?"

Tommy bit his bottom lip, "Uhm, hi," he mumbled, "It's Tommy, Anna needs you."

Eliya bit her lip, "I was thinking that tonight, you'd take me back to your place, and I could cook you dinner." she breathed, letting him take the bags so her curl her fingers in his shirt and lean up on the plateau of her heels to kiss him gently.

Lynn's smile faded, "Where is she? What's wrong?" she breathed, running her fingers through her curls.

Caleb kissed her back in the most gentle way possible before he smiled, "That actually sounds really nice," he breathed, nodding towards the limo, "Get in, gorgeous."

"She's at her apartment in Upper West Side," Tommy mumbled, "She's been hitting a lot of drugs during these past few weeks and I'm starting to get worried."

Eliya smiled to herself as she moved past him to slide into the back of the limo, draping on leg over the other as she glanced around, having never actually been inside a limo before, "You really got a limo for me?" she breathed, glancing up at him.

Lynn shut her eyes for a moment, "All right, don't leave her alone, I'm on my way." she breathed, hanging up before she looked at her second-in-command, "Stacey, take care of this guy and tell Liza to hold my calls, I have to go." she breathed, stepping over the man to grab her gun from her desk and disappear to Anna's apartment.

"Of course, babe," Caleb breathed as he slid into the limousine and put the groceries down before he shut the door and the driver soon began driving.

Anna had tilted back on the bed, running her fingers back and forth over her belly button as she giggled up at her brother, "Itsy bitsy spider," she sang lowly to herself, her lids half-closed as if she was on her way to wonderland already as she continued, "Dropped meth right on her bed," she whispered, a tingly sensation washing over her as Tommy smiled down at her softly, not saying anything.

Eliya leaned over to kiss his cheek, "You're going to spoil me and it's only our third date." she breathed, feeling like she'd known him so much longer than two weeks as she reached up to touch his face so she could lean up and kiss his very lovely nose as well.

Lynn pursed her lips as she found herself in the doorway of Anna's bedroom, a deep frown curved her lips, "My poor baby." she breathed, starting for her slowly, "And you just let her do this to herself?" she mumbled, her eyes darkening as she looked up at Tommy.

Caleb couldn't help it when he grinned; feeling like this was so much like his old Eliya as he slid an arm around her and moved his face a little to kiss her deeply, in the naughtiest way possible.

Tommy frowned a bit at this, "She's a grown woman, Lynn, what was I supposed to do?" he mumbled, Anna twisting a little on the bed next to him as she bit her bottom lip, as if in her own world of ecstasy at the moment.

Eliya felt a shiver wrap up her spine as she tangled her fingers against his hair, kissing him back thoroughly, the taste of him sending sparks through her pretty head.

"Save her from herself, Tommy." Lynn breathed, moving around the bed to look over her ex-daughter-in-law, "That's what a real brother does." she said, cutting him glare as she bent over Anna slightly and ran her fingers through her hair, "Anna, what the hell are you doing to yourself?" she mumbled.

Caleb couldn't help but smile against her mouth as he ran his fingers up her spine, "You know," he breathed, rubbing his nose against hers, "I'm really happy I met you, darling."

Anna's lids fluttered, "Shhh, mama," she whispered, her entirely black gaze half-focusing on her ex-mother-in-law as she smiled, dreamily so, "The stars are singing."

Eliya smiled softly, "So am I." she breathed, feeling warm tingles spread through her as she rubbed her nose against his as well.

Lynn sighed, running her fingers down to Anna's neck, pinching a nerve there that would knock the silly girl unconscious.

Caleb's smile widened some at this, but he didn't say anything as he gently kissed her nose, briefly glancing out of the toned windows to see how close they were to his apartment.

Anna's lids fluttered once more before they shut and she was still; Tommy frowning deeply at this, "Are you gonna take her with you?"

Eliya smiled to herself as she laid her head against his shoulder, just murmuring sweet, little things in French, not even sure how she knew them but they felt right.

Lynn nodded slowly, passing her fingers over Anna's hair again before she turned suddenly, wrapping her fingers around Tommy Ricci's throat before she had him pinned up against a wall, her eyes blackening as she let his feet dangle just barely touching the floor, "You're going to stay very far away from her, do you understand?" Lynnie breathed, "If I ever smell you, I will kill you and I will enjoy it."

Caleb bit his bottom lip, "You're French?" he breathed, still running his fingers along her spine.

Tommy made a choking noise; his jaw tightening as he nodded, "I understand," he choked up.

Eliya bit her lip, "I think so, the words just come naturally when I'm with you." she breathed, "A trick of memory, maybe." she mumbled, leaning up to place kisses along his neck.

Sunday Family Barbecue...
Lynnie pulled her black Mercedes behind Kiran's Audi in William Hawthorne's driveway, the woman looked pretty even in her laid back outfit of dark jeans, red v-neck t-shirt, and flats, her pretty curls clipped back in a half-up-half-down sort of way; she smiled softly as she cut the engine and glanced between her two dates of Aiden Stark and Anna Thomas, "Are you ready?" she breathed.

Caleb felt a shiver wrap around his spine as he shut his eyes for a brief moment, "Maybe," he breathed.

Aiden nodded slightly; a soft smile curving his lips. He looked casually handsome, as he always did with those perfect black curls sitting on top of his handsome head, his muscular self dressed in black jeans and a white, long-sleeved polo shirt.
Anna bit the inside of her cheek, but she didn't say anything, simply nodding very little as she ran her fingers over her hair, looking naturally pretty in her plain black t-shirt, tight dark jeans and white Allstars.

Eliya nuzzled his neck, tingles making her toes curl before she pulled back a little, her pretty face flushed, "Tonight." she breathed, more as if reminding herself not to get too carried away before what she had planned as a shudder passed up her spine.

Lynn smiled softly, leaning over to steal a kiss from Aiden's pretty lips before she got out of the car, moving to the back to open Anna's door for her, all ready hearing the party that was taking place in the backyard.

Caleb cocked his pretty head a bit to the side, "What happens tonight?" he breathed, smiling softly.

Aiden couldn't help but smile to himself as he got out of the car, "Seems like they're having fun," he breathed.
Anna got out of the car, biting her bottom lip hard as she glanced up at the house, "Why couldn't I stay home?" she mumbled, looking up at her ex-mother-in-law with an always terrified look on her pretty face.

Eliya bit her lip as she leaned over and whispered the naughtiest things imaginable in his ear, "That's what happens tonight." she breathed.

Lynn bit her lip as she studied Anna's face, "I don't trust you by yourself." she said softly and honestly, "And besides your kids are here, I'm here, people who love you are here, they want to see you." she said, holding her hand out for hers.

Caleb bit the inside of his cheek, hard enough to taste blood on his tongue before he made a noise, "How am I supposed to think of anything else now?" he mumbled, narrowing his eyes a bit at her.

Anna pursed her lips before she took a deep breath, nodding slightly as she took Lynnie's hand and Aiden began for the backyard ahead of them.

Re: Strolling Into the Night

Post  Ashleh on Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:11 pm

Eliya bit her lip, "You're not." she breathed, leaning up to suck his bottom lip between her teeth, "I want you consumed by thoughts of me." she whispered.

Lynn bit her lip as she led Anna after him, glimpsing the backyard over the white picket fence, she couldn't help smiling to herself as she William playing football with Kiran, Drake, Caden, and their grandsons while the women loitered, chatting and cheering for them.

Caleb blinked slowly before he moved his fingers into her hair to kiss her deeply and most thoroughly; not even noticing it when the limousine pulled to a halt in front of his apartment building.

Anna seemed to tense a little when she looked over all of the people there; mostly wishing she could turn around and stalk right out of there already, but she let Lynnie lead her into what she considered the lion's den.

Eliya felt her toes curl again as she kissed him back hard, her brain turning to cotton candy, sparks flying through her abdomen as if he were the world's greatest drug.

Lynn gave Anna's hand a squeeze as she pushed through the gate, glancing at Aiden with a smile as Kiran Hawthorne came crashing to the ground in front of them, looking handsome in his jeans and snug white t-shirt even though he was sweaty and cuddled a football to his chest, he tilted his head back on the ground, panting as a wide grin spread across his lips, "Hey ma, Aiden, Miss Thomas." he breathed.

Caleb kissed her for another very long moment before he opened his eyes a moment, "We're here," he breathed, raising his face a little to kiss her nose.

Aiden grinned down at Kiran, "How you doing, brother?" he breathed, the past five years having rubbed off some of his British accent.
Anna didn't say anything; her light eyes almost paler than usual as they very briefly slid over Kiran before she let go of her ex-mother-in-law and stepped around her ex-husband to head towards Kira who was still laughing her ass off at her father's fall.

Eliya smiled to herself, "I'm ready." she breathed, "Let's get inside."

"Not bad." Kiran breathed as he managed to get to his feet and wipe himself off, he grinned widely still, "How about you, brother?"

Caleb smiled softly at her as he pushed open the door; picking up the grocery bags before he stepped out of the car.

Aiden's smile never wavered as he gave a slight shrug, "How could I be anything but fantastic when I have your mother to keep me warm at night?" he teased.
Adam Hawthorne made a face to himself, "Dad, throw the fucking ball," he called, looking like he had way too much energy at the moment as he glanced over at Cassidy, giving a characteristic grin.

Eliya slid out of the car after him, smoothing out the skirt of her dress as she looked up at his apartment building, butterflies swarming in her tummy.

Kiran made a face at him, turning slightly to throw the ball towards Adam, hearing little Cassidy cheer for his son from where she stood next to Tessa, he grinned almost wickedly as he turned back to Aiden, "You gonna talk about my mama like that, shorty, why don't you get in this game then? I dare ya." he drawled playfully, spreading his arms a little in a 'come at me, bro' sort of way.

"You coming?" Caleb breathed, glancing over his shoulder at her with a teasing grin as he started for the entrance.

Aiden gave a slight shrug, "Fine," he breathed, reached back to grab the neck of his polo before pulling it over his head; absolutely not going to get his white clothes dirty as he gave his friend a shove, "I wouldn't mind kicking your ass before dinner."

Eliya rolled her eyes, grinning slightly as she followed him, "Eager to get tonight's date started, baby?" she breathed, teasing a little.

Lynn grinned to herself as she held her hand out for Aiden's shirt, "Good luck boys, I'll be cheering for Aiden." she breathed, teasing her son a little.
Kiran rolled his eyes at both of them, "Way to stand by the family, ma." he teased, turning to run back onto the field.

"You have no idea," Caleb breathed, grinning at her as he stepped inside and started for the elevator.

Aiden handed Lynnie his shirt, winking at her before he started for Adam and Silas who gave each other knuckles, laughing to themselves.
Anna bit her bottom lip as she ran her fingers through her straightened hair, watching the boys play as she tried to unriddle her pretty head; a million different things running through her mind as she lowered her hand to rub her irritated nose, feeling fidgety around them already.

Eliya grinned as she stepped in after him, moving towards the elevator, "Don't worry, we have all night, maybe tomorrow too." she breathed, smiling up at him, her pretty eyes shimmering.

Lynn grinned to herself as she made her way to stand with William's little woman, June, a beautiful brunette, swollen with child who just came up to her chest, she put her arms around Lynn as she came to her, giving her a squeeze, "Good looking man, you got there, I think I nearly swooned when he took off his shirt." She said, teasing as Lynnie hugged her back and then they both turned their attention to the field where Kiran and William were going over their strategies before Will seemed to give a nod to something and look up, "Let's play ball, gentleman." he called as they got into formation.

Aiden grinned at this; giving a nod to Adam who grinned wickedly at them as he bent at the knees and held the the ball there, "Prepare to lose, bitches," he breathed, something excited in his gaze before he tossed the ball back to Aiden who made a run for a gap between their opponents...

... Kiran grinned widely as he slammed the ball to the ground for the winning touch down before he punched the air, whooping and cheering for their team, "Whose the bitches now?" he cried, starting to do a dance one can only describe as the water sprinkler.

Adam rolled his eyes, Silas quickly following this gesture before they both turned their backs on him and Adam took a seat next to Cassidy, "I have no idea who that man is," he mumbled, giving a slight shrug as he tilted his head a little to get a kiss.
Aiden couldn't help but grin at this, "I'm still banging your mom, though," he breathed, starting towards Lynnie now simply to get a consolation kiss.
Anna bit her thumb to keep herself from smiling to widely as she watched her ex-husband; quickly averting her gaze before he would notice as she turned her attention back to Kira who was laughing again.

Cassy grinned at this as she leaned over to kiss her man, "I've never seen him before in my life." she breathed, rubbing her nose against his, "You're always be my winner, baby."
Lynnie grinned as she leaned forward to kiss Aiden like he'd won the superbowl instead of losing a backyard game of football as Kiran made a face, "Don't worry." he called after his bro, "I can kick your ass off the field too." he grinned.

"Thanks, baby," Adam breathed, a soft smile curving his lips.
Aiden rolled his eyes, "Doubtful, very doubtful, brother," he called back, grinning wickedly at him.

Kiran rolled his eyes as he reached up to take off his very sweaty t-shirt and used it to wipe off his face, "I could use a nice, cold beer about now." he breathed, having more fun than he had in awhile.
Lynn grinned at this as she turned her gaze to Aiden, "Do you want one too, baby?" she breathed, starting to get out of her seat.

Aiden exhaled hard as he nodded, "Yeah, thanks, babe," he breathed, slipping into his seat next to Lynnie's.
Kira pursed her lips as she glanced over at her mother, a soft smile curving her lips as she looked her over, "Where's uncle Tommy?" she breathed, cocking her pretty head a bit to the side as Anna bit her bottom lip for a brief moment, "I think he's working, honey," she muttered, trying to have a genuine smile curve her lips, "I'm sure he would have loved to see you guys."

Lynn bit her lip as she moved towards the cooler Will had set up by the grilling area, grabbing three, ice cold beers as William was grabbing one for himself, he muttered something to her and she rolled her eyes, unable not to grin as she started back towards her seat, passing a beer to Kiran as he came by before she handed Aiden his and sat down to open hers, "This is nice." she mumbled, "Why don't we have more of these again?"

"Well, because we generally don't like each other in this family, grandma," Adam muttered, grinning widely as he gestured to himself, "Look at me, for an instance, I recently disowned my father," he breathed, gesturing to Kiran as his grin widened.

Kiran rolled his eyes at his son, "You'll be lucky if you grow up half as cool as me, kiddo." he grinned as he same to sit down near his only daughter.

"I'm sorry, I think I heard a buzzing," Adam breathed, putting on his most confused face as he gestured to his ear and then looked at his father, "Did you say something, old man?" he muttered, Kira laughing once more as she looked up at her father and raised a little in her seat to kiss his cheek, "I think you're lovely, daddy."
Aiden couldn't help but laugh heartily as he ran his fingers over his hair, opening his beer as he leaned back in his seat.

Caleb stepped into his very large, open apartment; a slight smile curving his lips, "Welcome to my crib," he said, glancing back at her as he started for his open kitchen with the groceries.

"Thanks baby." Kiran grinned, making a face at his son again, "Hah." he muttered, "You just got knocked off my favorite's list." he muttered.
Lynn rolled her eyes, "It's okay, Adam, you're still on my favorite's list and mine is the one that counts," she grinned.

Eliya glanced around, an impressed pucker forming her lips, "It's amazing," she breathed, starting after him, "I hope you're hungry because I am going to cook you my favorite meal." she breathed, grinning to herself, "Steak and homemade French fries."

Adam raised his beer, a grin still playing on his lips as he nodded, "I'll drink to that," he breathed.

"Sounds amazing, baby," Caleb said softly, placing the groceries on the black marble counter before he sighed, gesturing to all of the tools and machinery in there, "I don't think you'll need anything else, but let me know, okay? I'll drive to the store and get it."

Kiran rolled his eyes but he held up his drink at the same moment his mother did, "Here, here." she breathed, before knocking it back as William moved towards the grill to start cooking.
Caden bit his lip as he came to sit by Anna, studying her movements for a moment, "You okay?" he muttered.

Eliya smiled softly at him, "You're so..amazing, Caleb." she breathed, something warm filling her gaze before she turned and began getting everything out of bags and setting up her pans and everything she needed.

Anna didn't get to stop herself before she flinched a little, something the human eye probably wouldn't notice as she turned her gaze on Caden, "I'm fine," she breathed, almost inaudibly against her thumb still planted between her teeth.

Caleb couldn't help it when he smiled at this, taking his seat by the counter, "I can't imagine why you'd think that," he breathed, smiling softly at her as he shrugged out of his blazer.

Caden frowned deeply at this as he looked across the backyard to meet his sister's gaze before he sighed, "No you're not." he said softly, "But now is not the time to talk about it."

Eliya smiled to herself as she began to cook, "Oh, I don't know, maybe it's the way you smile or the way you make me smile." she breathed, glancing over her shoulder at him.

Anna slowly shook her head, but she remained quiet now, dropping her gaze back to the table and making it very obvious how little she actually wanted to be there.

Caleb continued to watch her; a sort of crookedness coming into his already painfully charming smile as he simply studied her.

Lynn sighed to herself as she looked over Anna, honestly worried about her ex-daughter-in-law but she didn't say anything as she took another long swig of her beer, "So," she started, turning her attention to her favorite granddaughter, "How are things with Callum?" she mumbled, noticing the boy wasn't there.

Eliya made a noise as she reached into the grocery bag once more and held out her iPod, "Here, can you plug this in, please?" she breathed, "Track six?"

Kira smiled softly at the mention of her man and she ran her fingers over her hair, "Fantastic," she breathed, sitting up a little straighter in her seat, "Which reminds me, there's actually something I wanted to tell you guys," she said, glancing around at all of them to see that her mother was finally paying attention as well.

Caleb nodded slightly as he took the iPod and slid out of his chair, moving towards the iPod dock and plugging the thing in before he found the track she wanted and pressed play.

Kiran cocked a brow at his little girl, "We're all ears, baby girl, what is it?" he breathed, taking a sip of his beer.

Eliya smiled as Frank Sinatra began crooning through the speakers and she twisted her hips a little to the songs as she cooked for her man.

Kira bit her bottom lip as she gathered her hands on her flat belly and glanced up to meet her mother's gaze, "Callum and I are having a baby," she breathed, unable to keep herself from smiling when even talking about it.
Anna blinked slowly; for the first time in two weeks genuinely smiling because she wanted to as she leaned over to kiss her daughter's forehead, "Congratulations, baby," she whispered.

Caleb couldn't help it when his smile widened and he began back towards the chair, "Beauty, brains and good taste in music," he breathed, "You really are perfect, miss St. Claire."

Kiran grinned widely, "That's amazing baby." he breathed, getting up to give his little girl a squeeze, "Is it appropriate to be proud?" he mumbled.

Eliya felt a blush warm her cheeks as she glanced back at him, "I don't know about perfect." she breathed, "But maybe damn close." she grinned.

"No, daddy, but I love that you are," Kira said softly, smiling so widely that her cheeks nearly hurt.

Caleb breathed a sweet laugh as he took a seat by the counter again, "Something like that then."

Lynn smiled sweetly at this, "This is wonderful news." she breathed, raising her beer again, "To Kira and Callum." she said softly, "And to continuing the family blood line."

Eliya grinned as she turned over the steaks, the French fries all ready getting crispy, "Dinners almost done, I brought beer and wine, your pick." she breathed, smiling back at him.

Adam raised his beer once more, "I hear that," he breathed, his notion followed by an agreeing grunt from Silas and Aiden.

Caleb nodded slightly as he slid out of his chair once more to grab plates, "I like to think of you as a beer-woman," he breathed, smiling softly at her.

"Speaking of news," William breathed as he came to stand with his family, he held his beer up to June, "You have made me so happy." he began softly as he put his beer down and started to one knee, "And I'd like to think that I've made you happy too and that we could make each other happy for forever." he muttered, taking a small velvet box from his pocket before he popped it open in front of her to reveal the ring, "Will you marry me?"

Eliya grinned at this, "You know, you might be right." she breathed as she reached forward to turn off the stove.

Adam's jaw seemed to drop at this as he turned a little in his seat, watching in silence like the rest of them.

Caleb still smiled, warmth in his gaze still as he grabbed a few plates, service and two beers from the fridge before he started for the little dining table.

June blinked slowly before she let out a squeal, "Yes, yes, yes." she breathed, throwing her arms around him to hug him tight, careful of her belly, "I would love to marry you, Will, I love you." she said softly, pulling back to kiss him hard.
Lynn smiled softly to herself as she watched them, genuinely happy for her once-evil-ex-husband, reaching over to take Aiden's hand and hold it in her lap.

Eliya bit her lip as she took the food to the table to serve them, "I hope you like it." she said softly.

Aiden couldn't help but smile at this, but he didn't say anything as he took another sip of his beer, simply watching the display before them.
Anna bit her bottom lip when she felt a slight buzz in her pocket and she took out her cell, reading the text with her lips moving as if she was reading out loud before she smiled, genuinely once more before she slid her cell back into her pocket; her gaze finally focusing when it found her ex-husband's pretty face.

"If I don't, I'll lie," Caleb breathed, grinning at her; obviously wanting nothing but for her to smile.

Kiran bit his lip as his gaze shifted to meet Anna's and he gave her a small smile as if everything was good between them at the moment.

Eliya grinned widely at this, "Aw, that's so sweet." she breathed, moving around the table to steal a kiss before she sat down.

Anna bit the inside of her cheek, an almost sickening feeling starting in her chest before she averted her gaze again and ran her fingers over her hair, that strangely uncomfortable feeling settling in her body again as she rubbed her nose.

Caleb pursed his lips as he looked over the food; giving an appreciative nod before he began to carve into his steak, "You remember that game we had?" he breathed, raising his gaze for a moment to meet hers, "Ask me anything and I'll answer honestly?"

Kiran turned his gaze away from hers, his ears pricking when he heard the glass doors sliding open, he glanced up, his spine tensing as he leaned forward in his seat, as if readying himself to attack when Gregori Taras stepped out onto the porch, a big, brutish man of the muscular variety, a wide grin spread across his lips, "A party and I wasn't even invited, I'm hurt." he breathed in his thick Russian accent, "And look, my two favorite students are here." he said, gesturing to Lynn and William.

Eliya nodded, cocking her head at him as she stuck a fry in her mouth, "Yes, what about it?" she asked softly.

Aiden glanced up; his chocolatey eyes focusing on the Russian as he raised his brow, having hoped they wouldn't have to deal with drama on that particular day.

"Did you ask everything you wanted to?" Caleb muttered, raising a brow at her as he stuck a piece of meat into his mouth and made a pleased noise before he chewed.

Lynn's fingers clenched around Aiden's as she raised her gaze to Gregori's face, "You shouldn't be here." she said, her pretty eyes glinting like ice, "You should be dead or anywhere else but here."
Gregori barked a laugh at her, "Is that anyway to talk to me, Lynnéa?" he breathed, his green eyes hardening, "After all the things we've been through?"

Eliya thought for a moment, "Mm, for now, I think." she breathed, smiling softly as she took a bite of her steak, savoring the taste before she looked up at him, "Why?"

Aiden remained quiet; knowing his woman could speak for herself as he tightened his hold on her hand.

Caleb gave a slight shrug, "I was just thinking that we've been going out for two weeks and you couldn't possibly know all that you wanted to," he breathed.

Gregori grinned at this as he started towards her, "See but my wife is here." he said kneeling in front of her, "I looked into it, sweetheart, we never actually got divorced when your father threw me in Serbian Prison." he said, taking out her very old wedding ring as she seemed to get paler with each word out of his mouth, he took her free hand and shoved it onto her finger, "I just came to take you home, Mrs. Taras."

Eliya smiled softly, "Well, I decided I'd like to get to know everything about you the old fashioned way, one day at a time." she breathed, "Is there anything you want to ask about me?"

Aiden's brow seemed to raise even higher as he glanced over at Lynnie, "Is he serious?" he muttered, frowning.

Caleb gave a slight shrug, "Nothing you could answer without your memories," he breathed, making a face at the words coming out of his mouth, "Or something," he mumbled, stuffing a fry into his pretty mouth.

Lynn felt bile rise at the back of her throat as she blinked slowly, "I don't know." she breathed, her eyes turning to stone as she moved back in her seat just to kick Gregori Taras as hard as she could in his face, the man flew backwards, blood spurting from his now broken nose and he grinned a very bloody grin, "I always love it when you're rough with me, darling." he muttered, reaching up to wipe at his face.

Eliya considered this, giving a shrug of her slender shoulders, "Sometimes I forget that I don't remember." she breathed, wrinkling her pretty nose.

Adam couldn't help but grin at this, "Trust me, there's plenty more where that came from," he muttered, gesturing at the many Hawthornes sitting there.

Caleb gave a slight shrug, "If you remember, you'll remember, right?" he breathed, smiling softly at her before he stuffed another fry into his mouth.

Lynn was on her feet suddenly, standing over Gregori, "Leave. Now." she said through her teeth, reaching back to curl her fingers around her glock, "Or I will send you straight back to Hell." she breathed, her pretty eyes blackening out.
Gregori licked his bloody teeth before he blew her a kiss, "Dasvydania, sweetheart." he breathed and disappeared.

Eliya bit her lip as she studied Caleb closely, "I don't think I care if I remember anymore," she said softly, "I want to make all these new ones..with you."

Aiden pursed his lips, tilting his head a little to look up at his girl, "You alright, sweetheart?"

Caleb met her gaze again, "Yeah?" he breathed.

Lynn tightened her spine to keep from shaking as she shook her head slowly, "Not really." she mumbled, studying the ground where her former husband had been before she looked up at June and William, "I'm sorry he came, I thought I killed him." she breathed as she turned away from them to curl her fingers in her hear and cuss in all the languages she knew.

Eliya nodded as she bit her lip, "If you wouldn't mind, of course?" she breathed, watching his face.

Aiden pursed his lips, but he didn't say anything; merely taking another sip from his beer as he mentally added Mr. Taras to his list of people to kill.

Caleb slowly shook his head, "There's nothing I'd want more, baby," he breathed, dropping his gaze back to his food as he took another bite out of his steak.

Lynn took a breath, calming herself down before she glanced back at Aiden, "Can we go home?" she mumbled, her pretty lips twisting.

Eliya smiled softly as she leaned across the table to kiss his neck, "You make it hard for a girl not to fall in love with you, you know that?" she mumbled, leaning back in her seat as she continued eating.

Aiden gave a slight nod, "Sure, darling," he muttered, finishing his beer before he stood and nodded to his bro and the rest of the Hawthornes before he held his hand out for Lynnie's.
They didn't even have to ask before Anna exhaled, practically shooting out of her seat before she started to leave the backyard without a word to anyone, feeling sick to her stomach still.

Caleb bit his lip, "I try," he breathed, a grin curving his lips as he was obviously teasing.

Lynn took his hand, sighing softly as she waved goodbye to them before she began leading him back towards the gate, "I'm sorry about him." she mumbled, meaning Gregori.

Eliya smiled to herself as she finished eating, she stood to take her plate to the sink before she sauntered into the living room, swaying a little to the tracks playing as she waited for him to finish.

Caden watched them leave, his jaw tight as if he'd always had a special place of hatred for Gregori Taras in his heart, "I think we should find Taras and kick his ass." he muttered, nodding to himself.

"Don't be," Aiden muttered, giving her hand a soft squeeze, "He was your trainer?"

Caleb finished his meal rather quickly before he stood, taking his dish to the sink as well before he started after her; biting his bottom lip as he watched her backside.

Adam couldn't help but grin at this as he gave a slight shrug of his shoulders, "I'm in," he muttered, as always.
Kira bit her bottom lip as she watched them leave before she turned a little in her seat to look up at her father, "What's wrong with mom?" she mumbled, figuring he would have read her mind already.

Lynn nodded slowly, "He my last step into becoming the sort of assassin I wanted to be." she mumbled, "And then we fell in love and it all sort of went down hill from there."

Eliya glanced over her shoulder at him, smiling softly, "Sit down, I want to dance for you." she breathed, still swaying to the music.

William rolled his eyes at this, "Yeah and going in with our guns blazing last time before having an actual plan had Eliya St. Claire sending us to the goddamn phantom zone." he muttered.
Kiran pursed his lips, "I don't know, I stay out of her head these days, Kira." he said softly.

Aiden gave a slight nod, "Ghost of the past then?"

Caleb's lips twitched into a grin at this, obviously not gonna pass on this chance as he moved to take a seat on the leather sofa; leaning back.

Adam made a face at this, "Yeah, but we're not dealing with the Queen of Hell now, are we?" he mumbled, raising a brow at his grandfather.
Kira seemed to frown a bit at this, "But we agree that something's not right?" she mumbled, mentally deciding whether or not she should have a sit-down with her mother.

Lynn nodded again, pursing her lips tight as they reached her Mercedes, "A ghost come back to haunt me again." she muttered, reaching into her pocket for her keys to open the door.

Eliya continued in a slow minuet, swaying her hips as she reached up to unzip her pretty blue dress, letting it slip down her shoulders to the floor before she stepped out of it and her heels and turned to face him in nothing but her lacy black panties, "What do you think?" she breathed, biting her lip.

William shrugged, "No but someone had to bring him back, your grandmother killed him rather thoroughly last I checked and either really powerful demon or a really pissed off angel could have done it." he muttered, glancing at Cassy, "Did you get Hell-vibes?"
Kiran bit his lip, "She was twitchy, more than usual I mean." he muttered, "I think if you see her, you shouldn't go alone." he breathed, not wanting to voice his opinion on what he thought was wrong.

Aiden scrunched up his pretty nose as he nodded, but he didn't say anything else as he glanced back at Anna, "You alright, honey?" he muttered, frowning a little when she shook her head.

Caleb bit his bottom lip hard as he looked her over, "Amazing," he breathed, running his fingers over his hair.

Adam bit his bottom lip, but he said nothing as he glanced over at Cassidy.
"You think she's using," Kira mumbled, frowning deeply; this not being a question.

Lynn seemed to refocus as she looked back at Anna, "We'll be home soon, sweetheart." she said softly, unlocking her Mercedes to slide behind the wheel and bring the engine to life,

Eliya bit her lip as she sauntered towards him, straddling his lap as she bent her head to kiss his pretty mouth, her fingers working at getting his shirt off.

Cassy wrinkled her nose, "No more than usual but I wasn't really trying to reach out and touch the guy who looked like he'd like to someone's face." she mumbled.
Kiran nodded slowly, "I think so, I think that's why she's staying with Grandma Lynn." he said softly.

Aiden slid in next to Lynnie, Anna getting into the back of it before she sighed, shutting her eyes as her pretty, plump lips twisted, "I've never wanted to die as much as today," she mumbled, rubbing her nose again.

Caleb made a sweet noise as he raised his hand; ever so gently running his fingertips along her sides as if she was the most delicate of flowers as he gently bit her bottom lip, shivering more than he'd expected.

Adam scrunched up his nose, "I'd like to shove a metal spike up his ass," he mumbled, taking another sip of his beer.
Kira raised a brow at her father, "You're not gonna help her, are you, daddy?" she mumbled, something soft about her light green eyes.

Lynn sighed, shutting her eyes for a moment, "I should have left you home, I'm sorry." she breathed, rubbing her face for a moment before she pulled out of the driveway and began down the road, a moment before she blinked them to her apartment building in the city.

Eliya got his shirt off, lowering her head to place kisses against his chest gently as her hands moved down to his slacks.

William pursed his lips, "Fuck it, I'm in." he muttered, "When are we leaving?"
Kiran swallowed hard, "I can't. Not this time." he said softly.

Anna sighed again, her eyes still shut as she shook her head, "It's not your fault," she breathed, "I didn't think it'd be a problem seeing them again."

Caleb took a deep breath, watching her closely as warmth began to fill his abdomen and he ran his fingers over her hair.

Adam pursed his lips as he glanced over at Caden again, "Up to you, Uncle."
Kira's jaw tightened some, "I'll go see her," she mumbled, grabbing her cell from the table and sliding it into the pocket of her jeans before she stood.

Lynnie didn't say anything to this as she pulled her Mercedes into the parking garage and parked in her reserved place, "I need a minute, you two go up, okay?" she mumbled, biting her lip.

Eliya felt a sort of nervousness in her belly, "I've never done this before." she breathed, unzipping his slacks as she brought her gaze back to him.

Aiden gave a slight nod, "Alright," he muttered, leaning over to kiss her cheek before he stepped out of the car; Anna following behind him.

Caleb blinked, "What?" he breathed, meeting her gaze, "What do you mean?"

Lynn watched them go for a moment, feeling her throat get tight as her vision blurred, and then a sudden pain jolted up her right arm, preceding the sound of crunching metal and plastic from where she'd punched a hole through her pretty radio. She sighed, swallowing hard as she got out and started after them, the knuckles on her right hand bloody with plastic.

"I don't remember having sex." Eliya mumbled, her cheeks getting hot, "This is my first time, I think."

Anna and Aiden said nothing to each other, not one of them looking back either before they stepped into the elevator; Aiden holding the doors for Lynnie.

Caleb bit his bottom lip hard as he studied her pretty face closely, "Are you sure you want to do this then?" he breathed, "We can wait, I won't mind.."

Lynn slid into the elevator, offering no apologies or explanations as she let her hand hang limp at her side.

Eliya studied his face before she kissed him hard, "I'm ready." she breathed, "I want you, Caleb, tonight."

Anna said nothing; briefly looking down at Lynnie's hand before she leaned against the back of the elevator, remaining silent.
Aiden didn't say anything either; simply taking Lynn's good hand in his before squeezing.

Caleb gave a slight nod, a crooked grin curving his lips, "Prepare for me to rock your world, then," he breathed, planting his hands on her ass before he stood, lifting her with him before he started for the stairs that would lead them to his open bedroom.

... Lynn arched her back, groaning as she reached up to curl her fingers through the slats in her head board, pleasure sweeping through her entire body, she curled her toes, screaming out Aiden's name as the trembles started deep in her abdomen, his pretty curls tickling her thighs as she shuddered.

Eliya couldn't help giggling, "I can't wait." she breathed, wrapping her legs around his waist...

Aiden continued to taste her; his fingers digging into her hips as he did, an almost satisfied feeling spreading through him when he listened to the noises she could make.
Anna ran her fingers through her hair as she slid out onto the fire escape; the sound of her ex-mother-in-law screaming making her absolutely sure that it would be a while before they noticed she was gone. She took a breath before she swung her duffel over her shoulder and began down the escape, already seeing Matthew's armored police car pull up to the building; the beast looking like something out of a movie.

.. Caleb pressed himself deep into her for the last time; not as careful anymore as he'd been an hour earlier, feeling every inch of her with a shudder as he curled his fingers in the silky sheets, almost struggling to keep himself above her as he bent his head to bite at her breasts.

Lynn made the sweetest little noises, her whole body trembling as she reached down to run her fingers through his hair, her lids all fluttery, "I need you. Inside me. Now." she groaned, biting her bottom lip so hard it bled.

Eliya tilted her head back, her nails digging into his shoulders as she cried his name, pleasurable trembles making her see stars.

Aiden couldn't help but grin at this as he raised himself a little; wiping at his mouth before he moved over her; pressing himself deep into her as he bent his pretty, curled head to kiss her throat...

Caleb continued to place little, hot kisses all over her breasts before he raised his head to kiss her beautiful mouth; so utterly consumed by her in that very moment.

... Lynnie raked her nails up Aiden's back, screaming out his name as pleasure trembled through her entire body again and again and she felt her lids fluttering, black spots dancing in her vision.

Eliya made a sweet noise as she kissed him deeply, running her fingers over his back now, every part of her so full of him.

Aiden bit his bottom lip, hard enough to taste blood as he slammed into her a last time; pleasure having him shudder as he bent his head to kiss her hard.

"Here," Matthew muttered, driving way beyond the speed limit as he held out a little brown bag to Anna, "It'll make you feel better," he said softly, a warm smile curving his lips as he watched her unzip the the bag before she took out the filled syringe that was in it. She didn't say anything; an emotionless expression on her beautiful, pale face as she leaned back in her seat and rolled up her sleeve, not even thinking twice about it before she uncapped the syringe and slid the needle into her skin.

Caleb smiled against her pretty mouth; tension leaving his shoulders now as he relaxed fully against her, pressing into her as deep as possible.

Lynn made a sweet noise against his pretty mouth as she slid her arms around him, her whole body feeling warm and so damn tingly.

Eliya shivered, the weight of his body against hers feeling so damn natural and right, "Beyond words." she breathed, her lids feeling heavy as she hugged him against her, "You are beyond words."

Caleb couldn't help it when he smiled at this, raising his pretty head to kiss her again, "You weren't so bad for a first-timer," he breathed, a crookedness coming into his smile.

Eliya smiled softly to herself, "Caleb." she started, biting her lip, "I think I'm in love with you." she breathed, shutting her eyes, afraid to see the reaction on his face.

Lynn shivered, her toes curling as she ran her fingers over Aiden's hair, her pretty eyes shimmering as she opened them to study him, "Aiden," she breathed, "Can I ask you something?" she whispered.

Caleb blinked slowly, watching her pretty face for a very long moment before he smiled again, "I know I'm in love with you," he breathed.

Aiden made an affirming noise to this, "Mhm?" he mumbled, laying his pretty head against her breasts.

Eliya blinked slowly, "Really?" she breathed, studying his face.

Lynn swallowed hard, biting her lip, "Do you love me?" she whispered, so unsure of herself, nerves tightened in her belly when her cell phone went off on her nightstand, she jumped a little, tightening around him, "Wait, don't answer yet." she breathed, reaching for her phone, grateful for the small excuse to postpone his answer as she picked up.

Caleb nodded slightly, "Really," he breathed.

Aiden raised a brow at her; but he couldn't help but grin as he slid off of her, expecting her to fly out of bed in a hurry within few seconds

Eliya smiled softly, "I love you, Caleb." she breathed, trying it out and loving how it felt so wonderfully natural on her tongue, "I love you, I love saying that I love you, remind me to tell you every day that I love you, okay?"

Lynn sat up within moments, "I'll be right there, tell Viscera to cut them off at the interstate." she breathed and hung up, "Anna's in trouble." she muttered, glancing up at Aiden as she started to get out of bed, hurriedly dressing in the clothes she was in earlier but trading ballet flats for steel-toed boots, she stopped for a moment to turn to him, bending at the waist to kiss his pretty mouth, "We'll talk later, okay?" she breathed, before she turned to leave.

Caleb couldn't help but laugh as he bent his pretty head to kiss her mouth again, "I love you too, baby," he breathed, kissing her deeper.

Aiden frowned a bit at this before he reached out to grab her wrist and yank her back towards him before sitting up and kissing her mouth, "I love you," he breathed, kissing her again before he let go, "Be careful."

Eliya made a sweet noise, "Say it again?" she breathed.

Lynn bit her lip, studying him a moment as she smiled softly, "I will." she breathed, "I love you too." she said and turned to disappear, knowing Viscera and her boys would have Matt's cop car cornered by now.

Few hours later - A bar in New York..
Caleb Vladislav appeared in the bar he knew his best friend would be in. He had left his little girlfriend sleeping at home and had dressed himself in dark jeans and a black, long-sleeved Burberry polo to go with his dark Timberland shoes. He still smelled of sex, having decided to keep his woman on him as he started for the bar where he figured Kiran would be seated.

Matthew frowned deeply, the car having come to a stand still not many moments after his ex-fiancée had blacked out, her entire body shaking almost violently as her lids fluttered and she made little noises, as if she was trapped in her own little world and couldn't quite wake up again.

Kiran glanced up at his best friend, the scotch burning on it's way down, he licked it off his lips, "Things went well for you tonight, huh?" he breathed, smelling Eliya in the air as he gave his friend a slight smile.

Lynnie appeared in front of the cop car, her eyes darkened as she peered inside and she moved around to Anna's side to wrench the door right off it's hinges, "What did you give her?" she breathed, bending to check for Anna's pulse as her right hand man, Stacey, appeared outside of Matt's door.

"You could say that," Caleb muttered, a crooked grin curving his lips as he moved to take a seat next to his brother, "You're drinking alone. Something wrong?"

Matt frowned deeply, "I don't know," he mumbled, "Meth, or something," he said, looking over Anna as she continued to shake, her heart beating rapidly in her chest even though she appeared to be falling asleep.

Kiran bit his lips, "Anna's using." he muttered, "It's pretty bad." he breathed, taking another long drink.

Lynn's eyes nearly blackened as she lifted Anna out of the car, "Stace, take the Fed, keep him at the office until I get there." she breathed as her six-foot-four nephew grinned and wrenched the door from Matt's side, reaching him to grab him by the collar and pull him out.

"So?" Caleb muttered, ordering a Jack and ice from the bartender before returning his gaze to Kiran's face, "I thought you stopped worrying about that bitch."

Anna made a low noise, "Nuuh," she breathed, her lids fluttering again as she tried to open them, "I dun' want to.. don't make me go, mama," she whimpered.
Matt gritted his teeth as he was pulled out of the car, but he said nothing, simply frowning at the fact that he couldn't even help the girl get the hell away from these people.

Kiran frowned, "I can't really stop caring for her, I just do it from far away." he muttered, making a face to himself.

Lynn frowned deeply, her face softening, "I'm sorry." she breathed before she blinked them to a hospital...
Stacey looked down at the Fed, "You're going to regret this." he breathed, blinking both of them to Lynnie's office.

Caleb raised a brow at his brother, "Look, Kiran," he mumbled, "Either you're going to be with her and help her through this, like you've done a million times before, or you're gonna move on with your life and let her kill herself without it killing you too."

.. Anna woke in the hospital bed; her head pounding like she had been beating with hammers as she looked up at the white ceiling, the light nearly bringing tears to her eyes before she shut them again, her entire body buzzing in a sickening way.

Kiran's throat tightened at the thought, "She wasn't supposed to do this, Caleb, she was supposed to come fight for me, for us, to want us to be together instead she turned away from me, she's doing drugs, it's not her," he breathed, shaking his head.

Lynn bit her lip hard, she sat in a chair near Anna's bed, "You break my heart." she whispered, feeling her eyes burn with tears as she leaned forward on her elbows, her fingers steepled against her chin.

"When has she ever done what she was supposed to, huh?" Caleb muttered, taking a sip from his drink, "You need to choose."

Anna swallowed hard, "I wish I could say the same, but it's already broken," she whispered, shutting her eyes tighter, "Into a million little pieces that burns like razor blades." she opened her eyes again, tears starting to fall from them and having her gaze pale even more, "Why are you doing this to me, mama?" she breathed, "Why won't you just let me die already?"

Kiran made a frustrated noise, "I don't want to choose tonight." he muttered, "I don't even want to talk about her," he breathed, looking at his best friend, "I just want to go out tonight and do something stupid and not think about anything or anyone, okay?"

Kiran made a frustrated noise, "I don't want to choose tonight." he muttered, "I don't even want to talk about her," he breathed, looking at his best friend, "I just want to go out tonight and do something stupid and not think about anything or anyone, okay?"

Lynn rubbed her face, "Because I love you so selfishly that I want you to live." she whispered, her eyes wet, "I love you, Anna, I don't just consider you my daughter, you are my daughter, and you might start to hate me for it soon but I'm going to keep you alive for as long as I can."

Caleb gave a slight nod; obviously not going to fight his brother on this as he pursed his lips, "You got something in mind?"

Anna swallowed hard, "I can't believe you'd let your own daughter suffer like this," she whispered, turning her face away again as she shut her eyes, raising her voice this time, "I'm losing my fucking mind and you're just gonna let me cry myself to sleep every night, wishing I could jump off the roof and end this miserable life and for once move on, all because you're selfish. That's not love, Lynn, that's hate. You have to hate me almost as much as I do to torture me like this."

Kiran bit his lip, "My mother's ex-husband, Gregori Taras, is back from the dead, he showed up at my dad's barbecue earlier, claiming he and my mom were still married, got her worked up." he muttered, "I say we call Aiden, then we hunt that brute down, and kick his ass."

Lynn was up suddenly, throwing her hand across Anna's face, tears slipping down her cheeks, "You're life is not miserable, do you really think you know what it's like to truly be alone? You don't, I am here, your children, your friends, we love you, Kiran loves you, do you think it would be so easy for us to let you die? Drugs, death, these are not the answers to your prayers, they are a coward's way out, you're not a coward, I've seen you be strong, and you will be strong again." she said, managing to keep her voice from shaking.

Caleb pursed his lips for a very brief moment before he nodded slightly, "I'm in," he muttered, "Where do we find him?"

Anna's jaw tightened, but she looked like she couldn't even feel her ex-mother-in-law slap her as she sat up suddenly, this move hurting her entire body as she looked up at her, "I don't care," she said, at least loud enough for anyone in the hallway to hear, "I don't care about them, I don't care about you and I don't care about being strong. I don't want to be strong anymore, I'm sick of it and I want it to be over."

Kiran bit his lip, "I'll make a call, you call Aiden." he muttered, reaching into his pocket for his cell.

Lynn's jaw tightened as she moved towards the door, she peeked her head out before returning with little Aidan, "Tell him, Anna." she said, leading her grandson in my the hand, "Tell him you give up, tell him you don't care about him." she breathed as Aidan blinked up at his mother, "Mommy, what's wrong?" he mumbled, frowning deeply.

Caleb nodded slightly as he reached into his pocket to grab his cellphone; dialing Aiden. In a matter of very few moments, he had Aiden on the phone, quickly prattling off the address and their little mission before he hung up.

Anna swallowed hard; her light gaze focusing on her little boy's face before she slowly shook her head, "Nothing, baby," she whispered, holding her arms out for him to join her on the bed, "Everything's fine."

Kiran talked quickly into his phone before pausing, he smiled to himself, thanking the person on the other line before he hung up, "Got an address." he muttered.

Aidan moved forward to climb up on the bed and into his mother's arms, wrapping his own around her, "I love you." he mumbled, snuggling against her.

"Fantastic," Caleb muttered, running his fingers over his hair, "Aiden will be here in a sec, he's bringing a few baseball bats."

Anna shut her eyes a moment, pained tears rolling down her cheeks as she hugged her little boy tight to her, "I love you too, honey," she breathed, gently kissing the top of his head.

Kiran bit his lip, "My grandfather's using again." he muttered suddenly, "I went there earlier, he's pretty bad, Cade was there taking care of him as he crashed." he breathed, briefly letting himself think of Anna like that.

Aidan looked up at her, "Don' cry." he breathed, reaching up to wipe her tears away with his little hand, "Don' cry, mommy."

Caleb frowned a bit at this, "I'm sorry, man," he mumbled, only sincerity in his gaze as he watched his brother's face.

Anna couldn't help but smile at her little boy, the tears refusing to stop in that moment as she ran her fingers over his hair, "Sorry, baby, mommy's just happy you're here."

Kiran shook his head, "We can't tell my mom about him, Caden says she's afraid of how he is when he's like that." he muttered, shrugging a bit, "I know we do our stupid drugs when we're out but we never get like that."

Aidan snuggled against her again, "You gonna be okay." he said softly, patting her arm like this was something he'd seen on tv, "You gonne be just fine, I take care of you, mommy." he said, smiling up at her, showing the gaps in his teeth where'd he lost some.

Caleb gave a slight nod, "I wont say anything, bro," he muttered, a soft smile curving his lips now as he reached over to pat his brother's shoulder.

Anna's smile didn't waver as she ran her fingers over Aidan's hair, "That sounds really nice, baby," she breathed, gesturing to her cheek, "Can I get a kiss?"

Kiran gave a slight nod, "Thank you." he breathed, smiling slightly at his brother as they waited for Aiden to show.

Aidan smiled, leaning up to kiss her cheek, not noticing his grandmother had slipped out of the room.

Caleb didn't say anything; finishing his drink before he felt Aiden appear behind them, shuddering, "I'm never gonna get used to that," he mumbled, making a face as he held up a black duffel, "Anyone ordered baseball bats?"

Anna felt a certain warmth start in her chest as she held her little boy to her again, "Are you tired, honey?"

"I believe that would be us." Kiran breathed, his lips curving into a grin as he glanced back at his brother, "Took you long enough, I hope my mother didn't mind you sneaking away?" he muttered, half-teasing.

Aidan gave a little nod, "But not too tired." he mumbled, yawning.

Aiden made a tsk noise before he gave a slight shrug of his shoulders, "She left some hours ago, said Anna was in trouble," he muttered, not really thinking about it.

"Liar," Anna breathed, leaning back against the pillows and having him lie with her, "You wanna take a nap with mommy?"

Kiran frowned slightly at this, "What kind of trouble? Did she say?" he breathed, sitting up a little straighter.

Aidan nodded, "Yeah, mommy," he mumbled, snuggling up against her.

Aiden slowly shook his head, "Seemed urgent though," he muttered, cocking his head a bit to the side as he looked over his bros, briefly noticing Caleb rolling his eyes.

Anna sighed softly, but she didn't say anything else as she pulled the covers over little Aidan and shut her eyes; humming quietly to him as she stroked his hair.

Kiran bit his lip, "I'll call her later." he muttered, starting to get up, "Let's kick Taras' ass." he breathed

"That's what I wanna hear," Caleb breathed, grinning wickedly as he got out of his seat and Aiden unzipped the duffel, holding bats out to each of them.

Kiran grinned as he curled his fingers around the bat, feeling the weight of it in his hands as he thought of all the damage he would love to do, "He'll regret coming back." he said almost softly as his eyes darkened.

Caleb's grin widened as he tightened his fingers around the bat, "Transport us there," he muttered, his grin never wavering when Aiden made a slight swing with his bat, as if practicing.

Kiran shut his eyes concentrating for a moment before he and his brothers appeared on a dark street before a large two-story, lights dimming in the windows, "Let's do this." he muttered, setting up his swing and taking the bat to a Mercedes parked in the driveway.

Caleb couldn't help it when he laughed, twisting the bat in his hand as he looked over the house, "Come out, princess," he called.

There was a stir in the house and a noise like wood cracking before it seemed to splinter outward and large wolf-like creatures escaped onto the street. Kiran's eyes widened, "Holy. Fuck."

Caleb's eyes widened as he took a step back, "Motherfucker," he breathed, his gaze fixing on the creature before he heard his brother; Aiden jumped back, "We should run."

"Running sounds good." Kiran muttered before he turned and high-tailed it the fuck out of there.

Lynn felt fear rise in her throat like bile, she could her men fighting and she hated that she was being forced into a steal closet instead of fighting with them; Stacey shoved her inside before locking the door from the outside, she could hear the growls, the claws dragging against metal, they'd been infiltrated by monsters.

Caleb made a turn on his heel before he took off running after his brother; Aiden following closely behind him, every once in a while looking over his shoulder to see if they were followed.

Kiran could hear them getting closer, jowls snapping, his gaze locked onto an empty house, "There." he yelled, diverging his path towards it.

Caleb ran faster; his fingers clenching around the bat as he steered after Kiran, Aiden still close behind them.

Kiran made it onto the porch, breaking the lock to crash inside, making sure his brothers were in before he slammed it shut, "Get me something heavy." he shouted.

Caleb slammed his back into the door to barricade it; his heart pounding as he looked at Kiran, "You brought your gun?" he breathed, hearing Aiden ripping something apart in the kitchen before there was a loud boom and he soon entered the hallway, pushing the refrigerator towards the door.

Kiran moved to help Aiden with the fridge, "What the fuck is going on?" he breathed, his gaze panicked.

"I don't know, but we need to get the hell out of here, fast," Aiden breathed, shoving the fridge into the door the second Caleb moved.

Kiran felt his heart pounding against his rib cage, he could almost feeling it clawing up his throat, "Something's wrong." he muttered, feeling sick.

Lynn pressed her back against up against the door, feeling a jolt as the monster slammed into it again, she shut her eyes, fumbling for her cell before she called Aiden.

Aiden frowned at this; opening his mouth to say something before he felt his cellphone buzz and he picked up rather quickly, "Babe, what's wrong?" he muttered, glancing up to meet Kiran's gaze.

"There's something in the office." Lynn whispered, the sound of it beating against her door echoing through the door, "It's killing my men, it's about to break through the door, Aiden." she breathed, her eyes burning for a moment, "I love you, I just wanted you to know, I love you, I think you've made me more happy in the last six years than any man has in a very long time." she mumbled when the sound of screeching metal filled the line before disconnecting.

Aiden's jaw tightened, "Lynn?" he breathed, shutting his eyes a brief moment before he dropped his cell, his heart stopping in his chest.

Kiran blinked slowly, "What?" he breathed, "What happened?" he muttered, feeling his heart in his throat again.

"Lynn's office is under attack," Aiden breathed, raising his gaze to Kiran's face, "We have to get over there."

Kiran swallowed hard, thinking for a moment before he tried to blink them there, cussing when nothing happened, "Shield is up, we'll have to blink as close as we can, go the rest of the way on foot." he mumbled, reaching up curl his fingers in his hair, his fingers on his other hand white-knuckling the bat.

Caleb gave a slight nod; his fingers digging into his bat as he sighed, "Let's go fuck someone up."

Kiran nodded, shutting his eyes to concentrate again before he blinked them within a mile of his mother's office building, the street was full of people for some reason but it seemed like none of them heard the way the metal screeched in on itself from down the block as Kiran took off through the crowd.

Caleb and Aiden looked around the crowd before they both took off running after Kiran; Aiden looking like he was about to have a hear attack as he did.

Anna woke with a start; the light in her hospital room had been turned off and they now laid in darkness. She had to blink a few times to get used to the lack of light in there, this finally revealing a dark figure standing in the corner of the room, watching them almost curiously before it smiled, softly even, "He's beautiful," the figure breathed, slowly starting for Anna's bed; soon making it clear that Jason Ricci had returned from the dead and was now standing over his little sister's bed.

Kiran shoved through the crowd, gritting his teeth until he could ram through the doors to Queen's Tower, almost panicked at the thick smell of blood oozing from the place.

"And if you take another step towards that bed, you're a dead man." Jon Viscera, the man Lynnie had left on the door, drawled as he pressed the nuzzle of his gun to the back of Jason Ricci's head.

Caleb froze for a moment when he entered after his brother, the scent nearly having him gag as he glanced back at Aiden, "Stay here, watch the door," he said, something final about the way he said it.

Anna swallowed hard, "It's okay," she breathed, looking between Jon and Jason, "He's my brother."

Kiran gritted his teeth before he made a b-line towards the stairs, his mother's office a few flights up, the smell of blood getting thicker with each step until suddenly he was there in the midst of carnage, the bodies of men he'd known for years laid out destroyed and seemingly half-eaten on a trail of destruction. Two ugly wolf-like creatures lay out, blown to bits by men who knew what they were doing before they'd been killed by something larger, he heard loud pops echo through the halls and he took off running towards the sound, fearing for his mother.

Jon lowered his gun but kept it tight in his hand, "With all due respect, ma'am, Miss Lynn said not to trust anyone in here, not even your brother." he said, "So if you don't mind, I think I'll stay in the room." he said, eyeing Jason still as he moved to lean against the door.

Caleb said nothing as he followed after his brother; knowing he would be getting sick with worry already.

Anna nodded slightly, "Thank you," she breathed, knowing it was for her own safety as she glanced up at her brother, "How are you alive?" she mumbled.
Jason couldn't help but smile softly at his little sister, "Joseph brought me back."

Kiran continued down the hall before skidding to a halt in front of a man lifting his mother from the ground, a sawed off shotgun slung over his shoulder, he was nearly as tall as Caleb, shafts of broken lights glinting off his dark-clad figure, his emerald eyes sparking when they looked up to meet his gaze, the brown, red tinted curls on his handsome head a little disheveled now, "She's been bitten." he muttered, cradling Lynn to him carefully, her pretty face was paler than usual and covered in blood, her right side was torn bloodier from a gaping bite wound and her head lolled against the man's chest.

Caleb frowned deeply; his heart clenching in his chest as he looked over Lynnie and the man, for a moment feeling incredibly helpless as he shook his head, "Can we save her?" he mumbled.

Anna's frown deepened a bit at this, "Why?" she breathed.
Jason gave a slight shrug of his muscular shoulders, "I don't know, maybe he wanted to keep you safe," he breathed, "I heard you got yourself into some trouble."

Kiran blinked slowly, his gaze on the man's face for a long moment, "Jake?" he muttered, feeling confused.
Jake Hunter frowned deeply, "It's me, brother, I'm sorry, I tried to get here sooner." he breathed, "We have to get her to Maximus." he said, glancing for a moment at Caleb now, "Can you get us there?"

Caleb pursed his lips, but he said nothing to this as he shut his eyes; focusing for a moment before he poofed them to Maximus' estate.

An Hour later...
Maximus Allier looked grim as he left his granddaughter's room, he pursed his lips tight, his gaze dark with thoughts as he tried to find the right words to say to the three men who cared most for her, he pushed through the den where he'd told them to wait, "I have bad news." he began softly.

Aiden raised his gaze to Maximus' face; something so terribly worried about his own as he swallowed hard, waiting for the old vampire to speak.

Maximus swallowed hard, "Wendigo bites aren't like other monster bites, they don't infect and change the bitten, these monsters were bred from Hell to unleash a bite that's meant to poison, it's running through Lynn's veins now and there isn't a cure that I know of." he said softly.
Kiran's throat tightened and he shut his eyes for a moment, "How long before it...?" he shook his head unable to finish.
"Three days at most." The old vampire whispered, lowering his gaze.

Caleb's jaw tightened, "So, we find a cure," he breathed, seeing Aiden out of the corner of his eye, dropping his head as he covered his face and Caleb swallowed hard, "We've done a Hell of a lot more than that in only three days."

Kiran nodded, his throat still tight, "We'll do whatever we can, even if we have storm purgatory." he muttered, "This is her third death, if she.." he grit his teeth, "She won't come back, we can't let that happen."

Aiden slowly shook his head, "We need to kill those things," he breathed, putting his hands together in front of his mouth, "She can't die."

Maximus bit his lip, "I know you'll do everything you can to prevent this but if you can't.." he raised his hand, seeing Kiran begin to protest, "But if you can't, you need to say goodbye before it's too late, I'm going to call Raya to bring the kids and I'll call the grandchildren as well but you need to do what you need to do."

Caleb slowly stood, glancing down at his brothers, "What are we waiting for?" he breathed.

Kiran straightened, "Where do we go first?" he muttered, reaching up to rub his face as he glanced at Aiden for the first time.

"Hell," Caleb muttered, not allowing either one of them to respond before he shut his eyes; taking only himself and Kiran to where he was sure Lilith would be hiding.
Aiden looked up, blinking slowly as he frowned, "Fucking idiot," he mumbled, mostly to himself.

Lilith stood in her library, it was her sanctuary, the only place where no one could hurt her; her spine tensed when she felt them appear, "Go away." she muttered, her jaw tightening as she didn't turn to face them.

Maximus pursed his lips, "Do you want to see her?" he asked softly, running his fingers over his hair.

"No," Caleb muttered, cocking his pretty head a bit to the side as he looked her over, "We need your help, Lilith, Lynn is sick."

Aiden's throat tightened some at the thought as he looked up at Maximus, giving a slight nod before he stood.

Lilith turned her black gaze on them now, "I don't care, I don't want to help you." she breathed, her jaw tightening a bit.

Maximus swallowed hard as he turned to lead him towards Lynn's room, he cracked the door a little, he could hear Lynn making small pained noises in the dark but he didn't say anything as he gestured Aiden inside.

Cassidy bit her lip as she studied Adam's sleeping form next to her, she felt love swell within the grips of her heart and flood over her, making her lips curve into a soft smile, "Adam." she breathed, leaning over to kiss his neck right under his ear, "Adam, wake up." she whispered.

Caleb raised a brow at her, "You know, I figured you'd say that," he breathed, raising his hand to snap his fingers before Christina Sanchez appeared, holding an iron chain around her hand that ended around the throat of Alastair Winchester; his otherwise so handsome face covered in old scars and new blood, his dark eyes bloody red and his mouth sewn shut by what seemed to be barbed wire.
Caleb's lips twisted into a grin as he kept his gaze on Lilith's face, "How about now?"

Adam made a low noise, but it didn't take long for him to open his chocolatey eyes and look up at her; a soft, sleepy smile curving his handsome lips, "What is it, baby?"

Lilith blinked slowly, bile twisting in her belly as she looked down at Alastair, "You..you son of a bitch." she breathed, bringing her burning gaze back to Caleb's face, "What do you want me to do?"

Cassy bit her lip again, "I have to confess something." she mumbled, lowering her gaze for a moment, "I brought back my mother six months ago."

"Find a cure for a Wendigo bite," Caleb muttered, stuffing his hands into the pockets of his jeans, "Right now."

Adam blinked a few times again, propping himself up on his shoulders, "Your mom?" he mumbled, processing this for a brief, sleepy moment before he frowned, "But if you brought her back, why isn't she with your dad?"

Lilith gritted her teeth together as she refocused for a moment, "There isn't a cure." she muttered, "Wendigos are made from Purgatory, that's not my domain."

Cassy bit her lip harder, "I sort of put a temporary block on all of her memories, she doesn't even remember who we are." she mumbled, "I had to let her make her decisions, even about my dad."

"You sure about that?" Caleb breathed, his gaze still on Lilith's face as he made a low noise; this having Christina raise her gun and press the mouth of it to the back of Alastair's head.

Adam bit his bottom lip, "How would she remember again?" he mumbled, scrunching up his pretty nose.

Lilith swallowed hard again, "Wait, let me look." she breathed, "I'll meet you on Earth, I swear, just give me time. Please." she whispered, tears filling her pretty black eyes.

"With this." Cassy mumbled, turning on her side to reach into her nightstand and take out a velvet box, she sat up a little and opened it to show him the silver and gold entwined ring, "It's her memories." she muttered, "And my father's soul."

"You have two hours," Caleb said; Christina giving a good yank on Alastair's chain before she disappeared, Caleb shutting his eyes to focus and bring himself and Kiran back on Earth.

Adam studied the thing for a moment before he raised his gaze to Cassidy's face again, "You have to give it back to her."

Kiran let out his breath, "Do you think she's good for her word?" he muttered, running his fingers through his hair, worry still twisting in his belly.

Cassy pursed her lips as she snapped it closed, "I was thinking about giving it to my dad and letting him decide." she mumbled, glancing up at him.

"No," Caleb muttered, "But I know she'll do it when her husband's head depends on it."

Adam pursed his lips, "I guess that makes sense," he mumbled, laying back down against his pillow.

Cassy glanced down at him again, "There's something else." she muttered, "Before she died, my mother left the power to the Throne hidden." she said softly, "I found it."

Adam's dark eyes seemed to widen some at this as he studied his girl's face, "Seriously?" he breathed, "Do you think he wants it back?"

"My father?" Cassy mumbled, "I haven't told him about it, I don't know if I will, after last time..." she shook her head, "I don't know what I'm going to do with it, Adam." she breathed.

Adam bit his bottom lip as he thought about this; his pretty nose wrinkling again, "You should keep it hidden, I think," he mumbled.

Cassy pursed her lips, "You're probably right, it can't be good for anyone, can it?" she muttered, a shudder passing up her spine when her cell phone went off, she frowned slightly as she answered it, her frown deepened, "Oh my god." she breathed, glancing up at Adam, letting her phone drop to the side, "Lynn is sick." she whispered.

Adam's frown deepened as he quickly sat up in bed, "Sick?" he mumbled, "Sick, how?"

Cassy lowered her gaze, "She's dying, Adam," she breathed, "Maximus is gathering everyone to his house to say goodbye," she said softly.

Adam remained on the bed; feeling his heart slowly start to tighten in his chest as he stared at Cassidy; for a moment opening his mouth to say something before he shut it again, frowning as he raised his hands to rub at his face, "I can't believe this," he whispered.

Cassy swallowed hard, "I'm so sorry." she whispered, sitting up a little straighter, "What do you want to do?" she asked softly.

Adam slowly shook his head, "Stay," he mumbled, "I want to stay."

Cassy nodded slowly, leaning over to kiss the top of his head, "I'm going to go, okay?" she said softly, "Maybe there's something I can do for her, you know?"

Adam gave a slight nod, "Call me if anything," he mumbled, sighing to himself as he buried his face in his hands.

Cassy sighed as she slid out of bed, dressing quickly and making sure to grab her back, "I love you." she said softly, studying him for a last moment before she blinked herself to Maximus' place, glancing around to see if her father was there as well.

Caleb had seated himself outside of Lynnie's room; having not been able to gather up the stones to see her yet as he sighed to himself, looking absolutely exhausted as he leaned back against the back of his seat, simply staring at the door.

Cassy bit her lip as her gaze found him, "Dad?" she said softly, clutching the strap of her bag, "You okay?" she breathed, coming to stand in front of him.

Caleb glanced up at his little girl; sighing softly as if seeing her had removed some of his tension in his shoulders, "Yeah, I'm fine, baby," he breathed, "What are you doing here? Where's Adam?"

Cassy bit her lip, "He didn't want to come, to say goodbye I mean." she breathed, "I thought maybe I could do something for her." she muttered, "But there's something I need to give you while we're here." she said, pulling the velvet box from her jeans now to show it to him.

Caleb pursed his lips, "What's this?" he muttered, taking the little box from her to pop it open.

"It's mom's memories and your soul." Cassy said softly, "I fixed them, I was the one who brought her back, daddy."

Caleb studied the ring for a very long moment, frowning some, "Why didn't you tell me?"

Cassy bit her lip, "So mom can make her decisions, find herself without all of us." she mumbled, "So she could find herself back to you and you could fix everything again but it had to be her choice." she said softly.

Caleb's jaw tightened some and he was silent for a long moment before he sighed, "Normally, I'd be pissed, but you're right," he muttered, nodding slowly, "You made the best decision."

Cassy let out her breath, some of the tension in her own shoulders relaxing, "It's yours, you know, you can give them back to her when you want to." she said softly, when something seemed to dawn on her, "I have an idea."

Caleb didn't say anything; simply waiting for her to speak as he continued to study the thing.

Cassy bent down and kissed the top of her father's head, something she never got to do, "I'll tell you about it if it works." she breathed before she turned to head towards Lynn's room and slipped inside.

Aiden had seated himself next to Lynnie's bed; holding her hand tightly in his like he'd done for a very long while now, his eyes shut as if he had drifted off.

Cassy bit her lip as her gaze moved over Aiden and then Lynn, the woman looked to be sleeping, shivering and muttering to herself every few moments, a thin sheen of cold sweat on her skin as if she were being haunted by memories she didn't want to face. Cassy took a breath as she reached into her bag, curling her fingers around another rectangular velvet box, she snapped it open, for a moment studying the black diamond choker that held all the power of Hell, all of her mother's power, she pursed her lips tight as she moved as quietly as possible towards the bed, bending at the waist to slide it around Lynn's neck, she then placed her hand against the woman's forehead and shut her eyes to breathe the words her grandmother had taught her once a long time ago. The room hummed with power, magic as cold as steel and ancient, Lynn gasped, her spine tensing in the worst way as she tilted her head back on the bed, making a loud, pained noise.

Aiden woke with a start; practically flying out of his chair as his gaze found Cassidy and then Lynnie, "What the hell did you do?" he breathed, frowning deeply.

Cassy gasped, jumping back, "I tried to fix her." she breathed, her gaze flying to Aiden's face as Lynn let out another loud, agonized moan before her whole body tensed up, her lids fluttering for a moment before she went still.

Caleb pushed open the door within few moments; freezing when he caught eye off Lynnie on the bed, "Holy shit, what the fuck happened?"

"I was just trying to help." Cassidy breathed, "I didn't know, I thought it would fix her, I didn't know." she mumbled, her eyes starting to burn as she studied Lynn's very limp figure on the bed.

Caleb quickly moved towards the bed; seating himself on the edge of it before he grabbed Lynn's chin, "Lynnie, come on, open your eyes," he said, louder than he usually would have as he shook her face; Aiden holding her wrist tight to feel for her pulse.

Anna Thomas shut her eyes for a moment as she felt the purr of the Chevy's engine beneath her. They'd been driving for a while already and she finally began to drift off; for the first time in weeks feeling absolutely safe, having her brother next to her, driving at a safe speed down a dark road through a growing forest; one that had been burned down years ago. She sighed softly; a slight, sleepy smile curving her lips before blackness washed over her; she was finally going home.

Asher Kane felt a genuinely joyous smile curve his lips as his computer screen finally began to show some positive feedback; he bounced in his chair, almost giddy with excitement as he grabbed his phone and dialed Joseph the Fiend's office, safely located in the top of the building. It was only moments before his partner picked up and Asher's smile widened, "It's ready."
There was some pleased chatter on the other end of the line before Asher hung up and stood from his chair; straightening out his lab coat as if he had to meet someone before he moved towards the control panel; looking over the hundred monitors there, overlooking all of the remaining America before he uncapped a blinking green button and pressed it; this sending what seemed to be a sonic boom through the entire building, spreading throughout the city and soon state and then country. The shield was rising.

Lynn's eyes flew open at the moment she felt the boom in her chest, she gasped for breath, black spreading across her vision as the black diamonds around her throat secured themselves into her skin before fading beneath it as if it had never been corporeal and an itching, ancient, and cold power spread through her chest, mending her wounds, she let out her breath, the black fading into their shimmering violet-silver as she found Aiden's face, "Hi." she breathed out.

"Holy shit," Aiden breathed, slowly loosening his hold on her as he looked her over, "How are you feeling? Are you alright?"

Lynnie smiled almost sleepily as she nodded, "I feel..better." she mumbled, her brain still feeling a bit fuzzy, "I was bitten right? What happened?"

Caleb's lips formed into a relieved sort of smile as he stood again, "Maximus said you would have been dead within three days," he breathed, gesturing to Cassidy, "Cassy fixed you right up though."

Lynn slid her gaze to Cassy, "Thank you, sweetheart." she said softly, "How did you fix me?" she mumbled.
Cassy bit her lip, lowering her gaze as she mumbled something unintelligible.

Caleb raised a brow at his daughter, "Cass?" he muttered, looking at her fully now, "How did you fix her?"

Cassy sighed, "When mom died, she left all of her power to the Throne in an object." she began softly, "I found it," she gestured to Lynn, "And I gave it to her so she wouldn't die."

Aiden blinked a few times, "Wait," he breathed, looking between all three of them, "Are you trying to say that Lynn is the Queen of Hell?"

Cassy ran her fingers over her hair, "Something like that," she said softly, looking up at them now, "There wasn't a cure, it was the only idea I had..."

Two months later..
Caleb Vladislav ran his fingers over his hair; scrunching up his nose once more as he glanced over at his best friend, dressed in the exact same, dark camouflage uniform as himself, "Almost home, brother," he breathed, a slight grin curving his lips as he felt the bumpy road beneath them, knowing that within few minutes they would be entering New New York.

Kiran let out his breath as he reached up to run his fingers over his hair, "I can't wait to finally be home, I've missed our whacked out band of family." he muttered, all ready seeing the bus terminal coming up ahead, a grin started to curve his lips, "Someone obviously missed you." he breathed, gesturing out the window to the small female standing there in a pretty white summer dress, a sign up above her pretty curled head that read Welcome home, baby with dozens of hand-drawn hearts, she turned to face the bus, starting to jump up and down excitedly, and the biggest smile on her pretty face.

Caleb looked out of the window; a warm smile curving his lips as he watched his little woman. As soon as the bus pulled to a halt and the driver opened the doors, he got up, grabbing his black duffel, "I'll guarantee that Eliya's hosting some sort of welcome home party tonight at our place; you wanna join us?" he muttered, as if it wasn't already obvious that he should come.

Kiran gave a slight shrug, "It's not like I have anywhere else to go." he breathed, grinning crookedly at his best friend as he stood from his seat, grabbing his duffel as well before he gestured for Caleb to go ahead of him.

Caleb made a face at him, but he didn't say anything else on the matter as he took a breath; moving ahead of his brother before he hopped off the bus, starting for his woman with the widest grin.

Eliya squealed, dropping her sign as she ran to her man, jumping on top of him, her arms going around his neck and her legs around his waist, "I missed you so much." she breathed, burying her face against his neck as she hugged him tight.

Caleb dropped his duffel to the ground before he put his arms tight around her; hugging her to him, "I missed you too, baby," he breathed, squeezing her as he shut his eyes to inhale her scent.

Eliya placed kisses all over his neck and then his chin, "I love you." she breathed, placing kisses everywhere she could reach.

"I love you," Caleb breathed; a shiver wrapping around his spine before he moved his face a little to kiss her hard and deeply, in the most loving way possible before he put her back on her feet, making a gesture towards his brother, "I invited Kiran over for tonight and I was thinking if you could hook him up with one of your college-friends or something," he muttered, knowing his brother must have been as needy as himself in that moment.

Anna woke suddenly; a pained, choking sort of noise escaping her lips when she did. She was damp with sweat, even under nothing but a sheet in the Nashville heat. She didn't even bother to open her pale eyes; instead raising her hands to rub at her face as she kicked off the sweaty sheet and sighed, hoping that Jason had cooked her breakfast already and would let her drive into town by herself in the afternoon.
She was still skinny, but her brother's cooking had finally started to put some meat back on her bones; giving her an almost modelesque figure, even for someone her height. She moistened her lips before she slid out of bed, pulling on an oversized Converse sweatshirt before she began downstairs, her chocolate curls a mess on top of her pretty, slightly tan head.

Eliya smiled, "You're lucky you have me because I all ready thought of that." she breathed, glancing at Kiran, "Her name is Melanie, she's really pretty, not looking for anything serious and I love her to death." she muttered before glancing back at Caleb, "I hope you don't mind but I went through your address book and I called Kiran's cousin, Lynn, she helped me put a little something together for you boys, she seems cool, we hit it off." she smiled, holding her hand out for his.

Caleb grinned widely at this, "That's great, babe, I've been wanting you to meet her," he said softly, glancing back at Kiran, "How does a date with Melanie sound?"

Kiran smiled softly, "It sounds nice." he bent a little at the waist and kissed Eliya's cheek, "You're way too sweet for our Caleb, you know?" he teased, running his fingers through his hair.

Caleb made a face at his brother, "I'm a nice guy," he mumbled, scrunching up his nose.

Eliya smiled softly, "I think so." she breathed, taking his hand, "Are you ready to go home?" she mumbled, looking up at him.

Caleb nodded slightly, "Definitely," he breathed, gently squeezing her hand. He didn't really get to move towards Eliya's car before there was the sound of an engine and a black Chevrolet roared into the bus station, stopping only when it nearly hit them and Adam Hawthorne hopped onto the place on the door where there should have been a window, grinning widely, "Hey, dad," he muttered, "Welcome home; sorry I'm late."

'Kiran grinned widely at this, "No problem." he breathed, starting for his son, genuinely happy to see him.
Eliya frowned slightly, "That guy goes to school with me." she mumbled, "I didn't know he was Kiran's son, how old is Kiran?"

Caleb bit his bottom lip, "I don't know, twenty-something," he mumbled, "He became a father really young and Adam is just.. really bright for his age."
Adam grinned even wider as he slid out of the car, "Got you something too," he breathed, digging into the pockets of his jeans before he found an envelope and held it out to his father.

Eliya frowned deeply at this still, "So Adam's like an overgrown thirteen year old?" she mumbled, studying the boy now.
Kiran raised a brow as he took the envelope from him, "What is it?" he muttered.

"Something like that," Caleb muttered, giving a slight shrug, "Must've given the kid steroids or something," he mumbled, knowing how much that sounded like made-up babble.
"Mom's address," Adam muttered, slipping his hands back into the pockets of his jeans as he watched his father's face.

Eliya pursed her lips, "O-kay." she mumbled, wrinkling her nose a bit.
Kiran bit his lip as he studied the envelope for a moment before he moved to pull Adam into a hug, not even caring if he wanted it or not.

Caleb bit the inside of his cheek hard for a moment before he portrayed a grin, "I'm kidding, babe," he breathed, "Kiran's Adam's uncle, he just calls him dad and stuff cause he took care of him a lot when he was younger," he mumbled, "Practically raised him, really."
Adam made a noise; stiffening for a moment before he put his arms around his dad to give him a squeeze, "It's good to have you back in one piece, dad."

Eliya let out her breath, "Oh," she breathed, smiling again as she readily accepted this explanation, "That's pretty sweet of Kiran." she mumbled.
Kiran squeezed him a last time before pulling back, "It's good to be back." he muttered, nodding to himself as he folded the envelope and slid it into his pocket.

"He's a relatively nice guy," Caleb muttered, nodding a bit to himself as he glanced over at his brother.
Adam smiled up at his father as he ran his fingers over his hair, "What are you doing tonight, dad?"

Kiran grinned, gesturing to Caleb and Eliya, "Caleb's girl is throwing a party for us back at their place." he breathed, "I got an invite."

"Sweet," Adam muttered, his lips forming a grin again before he hopped back onto the window frame of his Chevy, "I've got customers waiting for me back at NYU, let me know if you need company to Nashville, yeah?"

Kiran grinned, "You'll be the first I call, kiddo." he breathed.

Adam didn't say anything else to this; his grin never wavering before he slid back into his seat and re-ignited the engine moments before he pulled away from the bus station and roared it down the street.

A few hours later...
Eliya sat down on their bed and kicked her heels off, a grin spreading across her lips as she looked up at Caleb, "I love your friends and all but I'm glad there gone because now I get you all to myself." she breathed, reaching for him.

Kiran bit his lip as he sat alone in his room, studying the envelope over and over, the numbers almost blurring together and burning into his vision, he rubbed his face before he got his cell from his pocket to text Adam, 'Meet me at the bus stop on 3rd, 15 minutes.' before he stood, grabbing the duffel he never bothered to unpack before he started out.

Caleb couldn't help but grin at her as he began to unbutton his black shirt, "I've been thinking about this every night for the past two months," he breathed, shrugging out of his shirt as he moved closer to her.

Adam felt the buzzing in his pocket as he handed over another bag of little pills to a dumb-fuck jock of NYU. He smiled to himself as he took out his cellphone and studied the text before he slid it back into his pocket and threw his Eastpack backpack over his shoulder, starting for his car.

Eliya bit her lip as she reached to untie her dress, lifting up a little to shimmy it off her body, completely naked underneath, a shiver passed up her spine, "All I do is dream of you." she breathed, reclining back on the bed, the hand on her abdomen drifting steadily lower.

Kiran bit his lip as he made it onto the street, letting the night air calm the thoughts in his head as he strolled towards the stop.

Caleb bit his bottom lip hard, but he said nothing as he got on his knees in front of the bed, running his fingers up her legs before digging them into her hips to yank her closer to him, wanting to taste his little woman again.

Adam awoke the engine; the cold air filling his car as he pulled away from the university and steered for the bus station. He knew it would take them at least a day to get to Nashville, so he had filled his duffel with beers, Snickers and joints, as if they wouldn't need anything else on the little road trip.

Eliya shivered, her toes curling as she looked down at him, her pretty mismatched eyes shimmering as she bit her lip.

Kiran continued his walk, his gaze skyward as if he didn't need to look to know where he was going.

Caleb met her gaze for a very brief moment; a soft smile curving his lips before he bent his head to taste her...

Adam was at the bus stop within too many minutes; leaning back in his seat as he turned on the radio, rubbing his handsome face.

... Eliya arched her back, dragging her nails across Caleb's back, pleasure trembling through every part of her as she screamed out his name.

Kiran made his way into the bus station, smiling when he spotted his son's car, he made it to the window, knocking to announce his arrival.

Caleb slammed into her a last time; shutting his eyes to savor the pleasure bubbling in his abdomen before he bent his head to place hot kisses all over her breasts and he shuddered.

Adam glanced up at his father; a grin curving his lips before he reached over to push open the door, "Get in, old man," he breathed, reaching back for his duffel.

Eliya's heart slammed against her rib cage as she tightened around him, hugging him to her, "I've missed you so much." she breathed out.

Kiran grinned as he got inside, dropping his duffel at his feet as he slammed the door shut, "Let's do this." he muttered, running his fingers over his hair.

"I missed you too, baby," Caleb breathed, pressing himself deeper into her like he'd never move.

Adam grabbed two beers out of his duffel, handing one to his father before he pulled the car away from the bus stop, "You sure you're ready for it, dad?" he muttered, glancing over at him.

Eliya shut her eyes for a moment, "Marry me?" she said softly, running her fingers over his back.

"Ready as I'll ever be." Kiran breathed, popping open his beer to take a long sip, "Have you seen her?" he muttered, meaning Anna.

Caleb raised himself a little to meet her gaze, "What?" he breathed, studying her eyes, "I thought it was my job to ask that question."

Adam slowly shook his head, his gaze on the road now as he drove, "Nah, uncle Jason kept her off the grid in Nashville, wouldn't even tell me where the hell they were until last week."

Eliya bit her lip as she studied his face, "Sorry, I couldn't help it." she breathed, smiling softly.

Kiran wrinkled his nose at this, "I hope she's better." he muttered, leaning back in his seat.

Caleb grinned crookedly at her, "Let's forget you asked until I have a proper ring for the perfect woman, alright?" he breathed, bending his head to kiss her gently.

Adam pursed his lips, "I can't imagine she'd be worse if he's letting us see her," he muttered, unscrewing the cap of his beer before taking a long sip.

Eliya's smiled warmed, "All right," she breathed, "I'll pretend I didn't ask." she mumbled, leaning up to kiss him deeply, "I love you."

"Love you more," Caleb breathed against her pretty mouth.

A day later..
Adam rubbed his pretty face before he finished his fourth Red Bull; having decided not to sleep at all. An exhausted smile curved his lips as he pulled the car up to the address Jason had given before he began driving down the dirt-road that lead down to an old ranch and they passed the mailbox, reading 'Thomas'.

Kiran had his head laid against the window, having fallen asleep some hours back but he yawned now, his lids fluttering before he rubbed his face, looking out the window, "We made it?" he muttered, sitting up straighter.

Adam nodded slightly, "We didn't even get shot at on the way in," he mumbled, studying the modern-looking place as he wrinkled his nose, "I didn't know Grandpa Vince had a ranch," he mumbled.

Kiran bit his lip, "I didn't know him that well." he muttered, making a face to himself, "I had just met him before the world sort of blew up."

"Guess no one knew him then," Adam mumbled, pulling the car up in front of the porch when Jason Ricci stepped out of the screen door; a warm smile curving his lips as he crossed his arms over his chest.

Kiran yawned as he stared out of the window shield, his gaze moving over Jason Ricci but he didn't say anything as he opened his door and stepped out of the truck, "Jason, been awhile." he called, running his fingers over his hair.

"You don't say," Jason called back, smiling still as he moved down the steps of the porch, "What brings you to Texas?" he asked softly, practically drawling the words as Adam got out of the Chevy as well.

Kiran grinned at this, "I came to see a little woman about a dog." he called out to him as he stretched his tired limbs before starting for the porch.

Jason rolled his eyes at this before he nodded towards the side of the house, "She's out back," he muttered, turning his gaze on Adam as he gestured to the screen door, "There's beer inside, unless you wanna stay out here all day."
Adam made a face at this, "You aint gotta tell me twice," he mumbled, practically making a run for the porch before he slipped inside, Jason rolling his eyes again as he followed.
