Blood and Darkness

The water pressed in all around us as I was dragged through and under it. Light, lost in the murky depths, barely illuminated our bodies as for many minutes or hours I was carried off. Barely conscious, my mind focused on Naomi and Venora and my sister. Trying, trying to keep their faces strong in […]

Recovery and Retaliation

Recovery and Retaliation

Pandora paced back and forth in the infirmary of Vamp’s Lair where she was recovering from her wounds.  She had been brutally attacked by three very ancient, very deadly vampires.  She had held her own, but alas… they would have bested her, had it not been for Va’lis, Cassius, and Flavius.  They pulled her out […]

A Razele Nonetheless, Pt. 2

A Razele Nonetheless, Pt. 2

Va’lis summoned all his strength knowing I was not at full capacity. Using his Blood Magic, he was able to take out the youngest of them, which was a half-breed — how dreadful it must be to have your own blood incinerate you. Stefan and Illyana Draco would be much much harder.  This duo had been fighting for […]

A Razele Nonetheless

A Razele Nonetheless

My eyes lit up at the sight of poor little Naomi cradled in her mother’s hands at Monticello.  I could sense the rise of Va’lis’ rage as he turned on his heel.  I demanded of Cherry to lock down the line in Monticello to get all the Razele’s in the house immediately!  I followed Va’lis out […]

Lanterns on the Water

Lanterns on the Water

Songbirds sang as the duo walked through the gardens surrounding Zento. The small childs laughter ringing clear as the crystal blue waters of the harbor while the man watched her with a smile. Alike and unalike they were as he placed each step carefully and with purpose, while she ran back and forth between the […]

The Tribunal of Marius de Romanus, Pt. 27

The Tribunal of Marius de Romanus, Pt. 27

I sat there in my seat with my elbows on my knees after hearing the verdict and sentence. The guards came to read my sire, my father his reprimands and statues before cuffing him. I heard Pandora, my sire-mother, yelling and screaming and Marius yelling back to her. Lestat stood there and when they turned […]

The Tribunal of Marius de Romanus, Pt. 26

The High Council came in and sat at their respective chairs.  Chancellor Gray shook her head once at our David and I knew.  I just knew.  I stood up and placed my hands flat onto the bulletproof glass that separated me from the forum; from him.  He looked up to me and smiled his usual […]

The Tribunal of Marius de Romanus, Pt. 25

Counselor Windsor was first at bat with Va’lis.  I knew this was a huge gamble on our part. We all know how volatile Va’lis can be.  None the less, here we go.

The Tribunal of Marius de Romanus, Pt. 24

The Tribunal of Marius de Romanus, Pt. 24

I decided to leave Natasha up at the box to continue questioning Va’lis so that he’s prepared for every possible question they might throw at him.  As they sworn in Carrie, she seemed strong… undoubtedly gaining some strength from her sister’s encouraging words.  Counselor Windsor stood up but did not approach the witness. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Couns. […]

The Tribunal of Marius de Romanus, Pt. 22

I listened to what Natasha and David had to say, “Absolutely not. I actually want my husband to come home. If you put Va’lis up there he’ll blow up the minute Draco hollers anything at him. Then everything will go to pot. No. Hell no.” Va’lis looked at me, “Let me do this Pand, I […]
