Dosia narrowed her eyes at the arrogant prince. She had enough with this devil and was more than eager to end his life right here and now. She slowly moved away from Sport's arms, her glare fixed on Eric. "Keep your filthy mouth shut if you have nothing better to say." She warned him bitterly before she turned to Joseph. The very first one to help her and the one who just handed her over. Not good impression so her gaze softened very very slightly. She held her chin up with pride, becoming the queen she always had been. "Do you wish to converse with us?" She coldly asked and motioned one confused werewolf."Bring us paper and pen."
Proudly she passed Eric and sat on throne. The guard came back, handing her the requested things. Dosia literally threw them at Joseph. Yes, she was so pissrd at them.
"But you shall know, that our opinion won't change. Eric Of Chamlek is guilty."
"Wait. Eric did ended the chaos by himself." Negomin decided to talk. Dosia glanced at her. "The chaos was made by him."
"This is not true. Lilith is an independent being."
"He accepted to help he-"
"Her song takes control of anything with Dark roots."
"..." Dosia pressed her lips together
The scolding hisses hadn't stopped yet but hearing Dosia’s shout, it helped Eric ignore the voice in his head a little more. He heard what she'd shouted and visibly annoyed, he took a few steps away from her throne before flaring towards her like he was saying, ‘There, happy now?’ When she mentioned Niva, the prince just snorted.
“Your captain? I thought she was a mere Lieutenant.” His comment was still snide and rude but he didn't say anything else. The prince just scoffed at what N.V added and he didn't even look towards Negomin.
Sorit loosened his grip on Dosia when she shouted and he looked up towards the man by her throne. So this is Eric, the one who had caused this entire mess. He seemed off balanced by something but that didn't stop him from still being rude.
Joseph let Morbida take his hand and lead him from Dosia's chambers. He didn't know exactly what had happened but when they got down to the throne room, he quickly put two and two together. If his brother was here… Then was Lilith also here? Joseph looked across the room at his Brother and Eric only notices him when Morbida gasped and Abantes walked forwards beside her.
As the relatives and siblings looked at each other, Joseph made a step forwards. He looked away from his brother and instead turned his hardened gaze towards Dosia. He wanted to speak to her, speak to her about his brother since he knew Eric wouldn't be able to fight his way out of this one.
“Joseph…” the older prince started but the look his younger brother gave him, told him to shut it. Unwillingly, Eric didn't say anything else since he knew all the wrongs he’d done and Joseph knew better.
It happened too fast. Before Lilith could react, her chest was stabbed through. Eyes widening, she was frozen in one place. She felt her vessel becoming weaker. "Wh...why..." She questioned this betrayal and coughed up blood. Then he threw the body off the throne and she rolled over, trembling in her blood puddle. She had to leave this body But It was not that easy to just let it go. Her expression was still stone since she wasn't adapted to the human body.
Everyone felt another chill when another being stepped in and stopped Eric. Lilith saw his blurry form, suddenly tears rolling down the face. "Y-you...why..." She sounded pathetic this time, couldn't even sing. She felt more hurt than just a stab. "Why...." Again she whined, whispering sorrowfully in Dark language. She started getting sucked into the circle.
[b [i Why...Why do I get betrayed by my own...own...son...]]
"Okay. I found my bow now I can just go back!" A cheerful Artemis in the middle of forest picked up the Ba'al bow and grinned happily. She had managed to escape her mother's forces and found a portal. So she just remembered about her weapon and jumped through it to find it. Whistling, She stepped in the circle...
It didn't work.
The poor demon was trapped in this world now.
Dosia who had been under a lot of pressure, was shaking uncontrollably until she felt familiar arms around her. Curiously, she looked up and smiled upon seeing Sorit. But it was not the time for any reunion time. "ERIC OF CHAMLEK!" She managed to shout.
"Step away from MY throne." The queen stood, glaring at the current enemy. "Deloriak is once again under MY control." The werewolves looked at each other. Romeo chuckled quietly and stood, dusting off his clothes. "Poor Niva girl..."
"You DARED to use my Captain as a bait. I shall not forgive this. And as I recall...you are still under arrest."
Negomin had changed back into her human form.
"Ya know...queen is right. There is still a jerk to wipe out from our kingdom." N.V called out...he had been...hiding in a corner from the mad werewolves this whole time.
"E-eric...!" Again, Negomin felt pity for him.
On the other side of the castle...there were dead bodies of a father and a son. Maybe it was the best end for them. Maybe they had gone too far. Lilith presence had just made them lose control and finish their argument like two real beasts.
Morbida took Joseph's hand and pulled him along towards the throneroom since all the noises came from there. All those weird feelings were gone now. "Wh-what...g-going...o-on...D-dosia!" She gasped seeing the queen. Abantes just arrived and joined Morbida as the two stated at their relative.
Lilith was here. The burning feeling of the word was only an afterthought as Eric watched her slowly stand and silence the room. He got to his feet after her and he waited till she turned towards him, her expression like stone. Negomin's roaring only temporarily distracted him and at Lilith’s touch, he bowed his head to her command.
“Of course,” He murmured but he did not move from where he was standing. Eric glanced over at Negomin, her fierce form and her wild, deadly eyes. His expression changed slightly as he looked across the bloody room and the was a quiet breaking sound, right before the eye that Lilith had claimed was hers, shattered in the demon’s tightening grip.
What happened next was only a blur of motion to those who were watching. But the one the demon prince had put up such a show for had been watching. Eric turned towards Lilith quickly and the spear cut easily through her chest, ripping into the new body that she had. It was good that he wasn't able to use Dosia as Lilith's host, being of the dark race, the mother's powers would have been stronger and she would have been harder to betray. But the captain had only been human.
Yes, she was still quiet powerful, but like Eric, she didn't have a body to match that power.
When he ripped the spear out of her, he didn't look to see if Lilith's expression changed. He simply threw her down, away from the throne with the shadows writhing around her, but another voice, clear as day, made him stop short from finishing what he started.
“[b Enough, I will end this…]” as that voice echoed through the room, a shiver of something shadowy, with burning golden eyes and deep bluish crystals glowing by its head could be seen for a moment standing over Lilith, where Eric had thrown her down.
“[b Mother…]” The shivering whisper hissed through the room along with other words in the ancient language and the portal beneath them began to open, but only Lilith and the dead fell through before it closed as quickly as it opened.
On the other side in Muerte, all formed portals, in use and not, cracked and seemingly splintered, becoming unuseable as the tie between worlds was severed.
There were no more shadows in the overworld as the whispering and quiet hissing stopped and the voice, sudden and chastising, boomed in Eric's head.
“[b You truly are an Idiot, aren't you? First losing your own kingdom then nearly destroying this one! And then this… Do you know why I locked her away in the first place?!]”
The scowling made him wince a bit and he lowered the spear, letting his human side have control again after all that had happened. Eric held his head since only he could hear his father's voice now and this fact made him regret inviting this figure back into his life.
Most of the werewolves had been forced to change back into their human form, including Sorit, when Lilith fell through the portal. But they were no longer her monsters and amidst the blood and injured, the old alpha looked up to find Romeo before creeping over to Dosia’s trembling form. He wrapped his arms protectively around her as he looked around the room, trying to see what else might be a threat.
Abantes and the lieutenant were able to follow Negomin up and out of the dungeons, but by the time they got to the throne room, Lilith was already gone. Even up where Joseph and Morbida were, once he nodded slight that they should get moving, though he was clueless to what was happening, they could both feel the immediate change when Lilith was gone.
Abantes felt like it was a nightmare of sorts. He watched the Lieutenant open the door while giving the news of chaos. What? Eric...that prince had reached here? Dosia....! This was enough for him to leap forward and change into a dog. The dog had a better balance on fours, managing to run on the shaky floor. Thankfully the other guards were busy with the roars...Negomin! Yes, he could use her to just get rid of Eric. He ran along the narrow hallway, hearing the roars louder and louder There he saw a small thing covered in blood, running past. That...N.V! "Stop!" Abantes barked out but then the floor under him cracked and he fell over. Almost in a blur, Negomin passed. She was now wild and angry...Her ancient instincts ordering her to kill the Dark.
"Damn..." The dog growled slightly before raising up on his legs again. "Where is the Devil?!" He asked the Lieutenant.
Everything...Everything was blurry and far away. Dosia grasped on the whip around her neck and stared up. Her mind was cloudy, the song slowly fading...Then she saw herself in that place again. The bindings around her were loosened but then again Eric was there . She gasped, trying to break free but then she saw Eric moving towards...another girl in military outfit...Niva! A whine escaped her lips as she tried to charge at Eric but it was futile. Niva was already dead and she felt the shadows letting go of her and swarmed around the body of Niva. They had her all covered. Then the cocoon started taking shape of another woman....And when the figure looked up...
"NOOO!" Dosia yelled out and sat up, looking at the throne with terror on her face.
Romeo was busy fighting with the wolf, hissing in a bit of annoyance. He had received good cuts and wounds from those deadly claws. Dosia screaming made him look up. "Uh Oh! Niva dear!" He pointed at the throne.
The woman once called Niva opened her eyes. "Mmmm..." Her eyes...were glowing in an inhuman way. Her expression was like a stone. Slowly and unbalanced, she stood. Some soldiers were watching with dropped jaw, not knowing what was going on. Soon, she rose up a hand. "Shhhh....Too much noise." And with that shadows around twirled under her command and slashed the soldiers. Blood splattered against the floor...In blink of eye...half of them were dead.
Fear took control of the throneroom.
"I am...back. My dear ones." The woman cooed.
Dosia felt herself kneeling down in defeat. Romeo was also somehow frozen, just watching. The remained human soldiers were the ones unaffected. They were too confused and scared to realise what was happening but soon the werewolves tore them apart. They weren't just wolves now. They were...the monsters of Mother.
"My precious dear.. " She turned to see Eric. His mark was burning against his skin. "Come..." She opened her hug but her expression was still like a mere stone.
"LILITH!" The doors were broken apart. There stood Negomin, growling and roaring. Lilith stroked Eric's burning mark. "Kill this expired creature." She whispered softly to him.
Morbida was now well aware that a great war was going on. Then, she suddenly felt her senses sharpening anther heart beating faster...Something...something was trying to take control of her...Morbida growled and changed back into her human form. The good thing was...she was pregnant and the thought of the baby being safe in her womb kept her in control...Something that Lilith never understood...Motherly Feelings. "Ugh..." She rubbed her painful head before looking over at the stirring Joseph." Y-you're a-a-a-awake..." She happily said the obvious and tried to make him sit up. "W-w-we sh-should m-m-move..."
The lieutenant heard Negomin’s roar and he cursed under his breath, running down a narrow hall that led to the larger cells. Only one cell was occupied and the lieutenant grabbed the cell door to help him stop as the ground shook some more.
“Lord Abantes, there isn't much time.” He said frantically through the bars as he used a dungeon skeleton key to unlock the cell. “That Chamlek devil is here and he’s trying to bring Lilith back.” He opened the door and gripped the bars as the ground shook again. “And Dosia is also here. Please, we have to hurry. If we don't, your cousin and this kingdom may truly be lost.”
Eric saw Dosia’s expression change as she looked towards the doorway. Then he saw what had wrapped around her neck and he felt her yanked from his grasp. Following the whip back, Eric saw who had pulled her away and he gritted his teeth in bubbling anger.
“Romeo!” He snarled, in almost a scolding manner. Suddenly a blur of brown and silver fur bolted from the doorway and the old Alpha bounded towards Romeo.
“Don't You [i Dare] Hurt Her!” Sorit bellowed as he lunged towards the vampire, and after that all hell seemed to break lose. Niva had already given her order to her soldiers. The snake was not allowed to leave their garden alive and she'd promised many riches to the one who could bring her Eric’s head. So most of the Soldiers rushing in were heading for the demon king while others held off Bhediya’s wolves.
Eric sighed irritably to himself and he disappeared from sight, reappearing in a blur behind Niva’s soldiers. He held the eye in hand and concentrated, hearing the raging sound die out and be replaced by whispers as he opened his eyes again. He could see where Dosia was her mind thrashing in terror against the song and what was happening, but also noticed someone else standing, wide eyed and completely aware of what was happening. The captain. Eric turned towards her, feeling the gem encrusted blade in his hand as he asked her one question.
“Do i know you?”
Her eyes widened even more and she breathed out her quiet answer, watching Eric approach her form.
“No…” She stood rigid and gasped as the knife cut slightly behind her left ear.
“Good.” Eric growled and he pulled the blade around fast, killing Niva’s mind right before the eye began burning into his hand again. He opened his eyes to the real world and he looked over in time to see the captain’s body collapse to the ground, now free for Lilith to take control of.
He moved again in a blur of motion to avoid the soldiers that were running towards him and he snatched up Niva's body, reappearing with her across the room from all the chaos. He set her down on the throne and waited to see if Lilith would be able to take this vessel he’d gotten for her. The chaos in the room was just quiet noise to him now and Eric tightened his grip on the spear that he still had.
With the shaking and the rumbling sound from within the castle, it wasn't a surprise that Joseph began to stir. He hadn't drunk much of the tainted drink to keep him asleep for long, but it had been long enough that he could have been dead and would have never know what had happened.
He slowly opened his eyes and blinked as he felt a weight next to him. His mind was also slowly registering the shaking and distant shouts of battle. He closed his eyes again and took a deep breath, letting it out slowly as he opened his eyes again and tried to figure out where he was.
"I was told to wash the dungeon. It has been....like forever since it has been cleaned." N.V was stepping closer to the glaring guard. The man spat at the young one. "Don't say shit! Who the he'll would ever clean a dungeon?!"
"Well, the new King is such a clean man that-"
"Shut up. How dare you mess around with a guard?! I will split you in two right he-" He held up his sword but then he felt a vague pain and his sword fell down as blood splattered around. "Grrrreghhhhh!!!!" He tried to push away the Cannibal chewing on his throat but N.V knew how to hunt a stupid prey. Yet, there were more guards and soon they would be coming. He hopped from from the choking man, snatching the key from his belt and threw it at Negomin's cell. Negomin quickly caught it and used it to unlock her metal collar. Now she could change without a vital damage to her neck.
"Quick N.V! No time for....eating!" N.V spat out the piece of meat. "I had almost forgotten the taste of a fresh human." Negomin slammed the door open and ran along other cells. Now she only had a single arm but that was enough for her.
"Hey! She has escaped! RUN!"
A booming roar came out as Negomin changed back into her dragon self and the battle began.
N.V turned, seeing the Lieutenant of Captain Niva entering the dungeon."...More trouble."
Abantes who was kept in a 'royal' cell, lost his balance from all the shakes but managed to reach the door cell and listen carefully.
Dosia seemed even more delighted by his laughter. She also giggled ridiculously with him but heard the doors opening very clearly. Looking back, She saw Niva along with some soldiers all armed and ready. Before she could react a whip wrapped around her neck and pulled her away from Eric. "Ah!" She was dragged to Romeo who had snuck in from the large windows. "Sorry~ Can't have the queen for a while as long as you are alive~"
Morbida had felt the shakes which made her even more nervous. She looked over at Joseph then gasped as she heard howls of war. Quickly she changed into her wolf form and laid beside Joseph, her ears twitching.
When Eric returned to the throne room, he found it to be mostly empty. He made his way across the room and stood by the throne before turning and looking down at the spot on the floor where he had been forced to kneel in front of the Kind Hearted Lady of Deloriak. He then looked over the circle with all of its symbols and he sighed, sitting back on the throne.
“I hope this works.” He mumbled to himself, the burst of power and energy that he had gotten from being so close to Lilith now beginning to wear off. Though that side of him was still in control, Eric was starting to feel tired and drained. There were a few guards lingering in the room with him but none made a move towards him of spoke loud enough for him to hear. Bhediya was no longer in the room either and that made him feel slightly better. This would be much smoother without the lord who was dead set on bringing Lilith back.
Now it was only a matter of time…
Sorit continued to race towards the capital, ignoring her childish giggles and tugging at his fur as they entered the ruined city. He could smell the blood and death, the pain and rot and hopelessness in the air. But he tried to ignore it all and replay what Dosia had said to him. She wasn't afraid, not like him, and she…. She said…
He let her down as they came into view of the castle and when the werewolf guards stopped them, he could feel his fur rising again and he stood protectively by her. A short exchange between his breather let Sorit know that they knew who he once was and watching as Dosia was taken into the castle, Sorit stiffened slightly before speaking.
“I am only here for her.” He said before stepping forwards, changing into his human form mid stride and racing into the castle after her.
Niva stared after Theodore and she just barely noticed Romeo wrap an arm around her. “This isn't a lost cause…” She murmured almost like she was looking for reassurance. Quickly the captain pushed away her doubts and nodded, mostly to herself then to Romeo.
“Yes… Yes, this will be worth it. And neither of us will die.” she said now looking at the mischievous vampire. “And Deloriak will not fall… I’m going to make sure of that.” she lowered her voice then looked away from Romeo. “Do what you have to, to prepare and when you're ready meet me by the throne room doors.” With that, Niva turned away and left the library to find her right hand. It didn't take her long to find him and her lieutenant listened with a troubled expression. “Have our forces ready in 30 minutes.” she said and he just shook his head.
“We don't that long... Dosia is already here.”
“What…?” the captain thought she'd misheard her Lieutenant but he just shook his head again. “Then gather as many forces as you can, we have to end this now.” Niva ordered and her Lieutenant watched her race back towards the throne room. He did as he was ordered, gathering soldiers and guards that were still loyal as he made his way to the Dungeon steps and started down them to find the two beings that couldn't say no to helping him.
Eric looked up as Dosia entered and ran over to him, Lilith’s song having already taken control of her mind, body, and soul. He pulled her back up to her feet as she purred at him like a lover, and he laughed. His laugh was strong and booming and it sounded so triumphant. No one would every guess how much of a show he was putting on.
“Indeed…” He growling encouragingly, and he didn't notice the throne room doors swing open with an unwanted challenge waiting.
Theodore stared at the leaving new King with an unreadable gaze. He had very well seen the new mark on his face and was smart enough to know it wasn't there for no reasons. But was Lilith really coming back? The ancient vampire couldn't tell. He had seen many chaoses in his long term life but this one was something new and far more serious. Sighing, Theodore turned away and started walking to the place he always belonged. The library.
Opening the wooden doors of the library with the slightest sound, his nose caught the scent of two beings. One was absolutely Romeo but the other one was a human being. Was it a meal of his partner? He made casual steps towards the back of the room when Romeo blocked his way, the female Captain near him. Theodore rose up an eyebrow but stayed silent.
"Hey hey Theo! This lovely lady and guess who....Urla boy are planning in a bloody rebellion! Wanna join us? It will be fun. I love giving little Eric some challenges...They are sooooo desperate that they want to give us anything we want~"
"...Enjoy it then. I have no intention of playing around." Theodore coldly answered and walked pass the two.
"A stupid little rebellion. This woman will die the first for nothing. Deloriak will fall. It is the end."
"I don't caaaare what will happen to this little kingdom! I only want to..." Romeo stopped, observing Theodore. "Ohhh...something tells me someone is happy about seeing Lilith..."
Suddenly Theodore turned to them, a hard glare being offered. "...I am a library worker. Who the king is won't affect my ways." And with that, he went to the small room and closed the door.
"It is for the first time we are separating." Romeo shrugged then wrapped an arm around Niva. "But then maybe it is worth it!"
Bhediya stood in the empty throneroom when the doors opened. He was expecting Eric but instead, his son was there. And the expression he made, was not what Bhediya liked.
"Father. I have some words...in private."
The two shifters left the place be.
Dosia was getting more and more excited when they approached the Capital. "Here we are! Here we are!" She childishly pulled slightly on his furs. "Can you smell the death and blood?! Ohhh...where is everyone?! Are the citizens all dead?! Unforgivable! They shall all come celebrate the arrival of me!" Giggling she hopped down and ran forward to where the castle was located. The werewolf soldiers smelt her but more importantly an alpha...Growling they changed into their wolf forms and circles the two.
"You morons! Stay back from us!" Dosia shouted out, not retreating from their bare teeth.
"Stop!" One werewolf in his human form approached, panting slightly. "She...she is the one our new King is waiting for."
"WHAT about...this ol' alpha?!: One snarled.
Another one howled. "He is our alpha...watch your mouth!"
"Alpha...! You are going to join us?" A young wolf wagging his tail but keeping a respectful space almost barked out.
Dosia was taken in the castle.
She was brought to the throneroom. "Uhh! Look at this giant circle!" She span around on it. The guards were confused yet did not say anything. the former queen heard somebody entering as the guards stiffening in fear...
"Ahaha~ My king...My king...Hybrid! The one who shall rule the corpses!" Dosia cheered and knelt in front of him, taking his hand kissing it lovingly. "Mmm...I can taste the blood..." The lunatic queen purred, blushing. "Forgive me. These fools didn't give me pretty clothes... I am in such dirty state...But that is how we all are in inside...isn't That right my amazing king?! Hahhhhh...just the thought of giving up my body~" Again she purred like she was in arms of her lover.
Eric heard the familiar voice and turned, looking back to see the ancient Vampire standing a ways behind him. Watching Theodore step forwards and bow his head, congratulating him. It brought another sneering grin to his face and his golden eye flashed brightly.
“Thank you, [i Theo.]” Eric did still remember what that Vampire had done to him, but it was probably a good thing that he didn't know what the vampires did to Joseph. The king turned away from the mere library worker and continued back towards the throne room. Holding the eye in hand again, he grinned to see that Dosia was very close now.
Niva pressed her lips together and swallowed back a sigh. There was no real reasoning with Romeo so ignoring the fuming Urla, she spoke up for the both of them.
“WHAT!?” She cringed slightly at the wolf's sharp outrage but the captain managed to keep her voice even.
“Just go deal with lord Bhediya!” She said looking at Urla with her sharp eyes digging into him. “I’m going to go find that demon Eric myself and let Romeo and Theodore deal with him their way.” with that the captain turned, not pausing to tell Romeo to follow her as she stalked away in the direction of the library. She was going to find Theodore first to make sure he’d actually help before going after Eric next.
Sorit huffed and sniffed sorrowfully till Dosia made him look up and told him she'd never forget the one she loved. He looked at her then, his ears flicking up at that last word before she pulled away from him.
“A-alright… okay.” He breathed standing again as her crazed manner returned and his yellowish-green eyes looked up in the morning light, towards the capital. Being strong and agile, the werewolf would be able to get them there in just under half an hour.
Morbida tried her best not to show the fear he inflicted on her. Her eyes widened slightly when he casually admitted that he was never planning to serve Lilith. She was lost for words and only stood there silently when he started passing her. What he said next, as a threat, just made her gasp and put her hands protectively on the belly. Her face lost its colour and she didn't dare to look back when he left the room. "...C-c-oward...t-t-trash." She swore silently and glanced down at Joseph again. "..." She fixed the blanket on him and sat down on the other side of the bed. She just could feel a real chaos coming.
Romeo taped on his chin with a wide smirk, enjoying every bit of this opportunity. "Hmmm...What will Theo dear say, I wonder. Because my lovely Niva, you know him well. He and that bloody swo-"
"Shut uo. Just answer already!" Urla snapped at Romeo aggressively.
"Oh, my! You have the temper of a wounded boar. I will be more than happy to help such desperate beings~" Romeo grinned and shook a finger in front of the boiling Urla. "But we do have some rules too. We will do the things 'our' way."
"WHAT does that even supposed to mean?!"
Dosia's smirk faded for a moment when the wolf started pleading her. She watched his head rubbing against her and she felt something in her just crack. The song was still in her head but she had a heart. "You...wolf...were the kindest one to me." Her shaky tone came out and the female hugged his head, stroking his furs and ears lovingly. Dosia gently took his snout in her hands and let their noses touch as she stared into his eyes with a strange, blushed expression which was clearly not maniac. "I am not scared. Let's go. I will never ever forget the one I...." She bit her lips, whispering. "Love."
Quickly she pulled herself away. "Now, stand wolf!" She let the craziness rule to hide her fear. "And take me to out Mistress!"
"A king. How unsightly." A familiar voice called from behind. Theodore was standing there, his glare set on Eric. Suddenly he stepped forward and bowed his head very slightly which was too much respect from someone like him. "Congratulations, King Eric." He acted like they has never met before. Like he was a mere worker in library.
Now this was unexpected. “A mere slave?” Eric echoed the words like he was unfamiliar with them, being used that way. He then chuckled softly and turned to face Morbida, a little surprised that she'd made the connection between him and his brother. But then again she might have already known who they both were.
“My fair dear, I am a slave to no one.” He said calmly, “and all this show? It is for someone, but that someone isn't Lilith, or you or your father.” He said, pausing before smiling a little and bringing a finger up to his lips.
“Shhh…. I didn't say anything and this mark,” He leaned closer to Morbida, “Isn't the mark of a slave, it’s the mark of my inheritance.” Eric grinned a little at Morbida before straightening up and moving to step past her before pausing by her shoulder.
“I must thank you for taking care of Joseph.” He said calmly, like he hadn't just admitted to plotting against Lilith. “but do know that if you speak a word of this to anyone, i will not hesitate to carve that child from your womb and use them as Lilith’s host instead.”
And there it is, the bone chilling threat he just couldn't leave quiet. He stepped away from Morbida and walked to the door, not saying anything else as he took the spear in hand again and walked away.
Niva stiffened at Urla's warning and looked back at him when he said he was going to give his father a chance. When Romeo spoke up suddenly, Niva turned sharply to look at him, but she knew better then to draw her sword.
“How much did you hear?” She asked and the amused smirk let her know that he’d heard everything. She sighed half to herself, knowing that Romeo could and probably would try to turn this around to help himself and Theodore then herself and Urla.
“Would Theodore help…? If he knew...?” She began to ask, knowing fairly well what Eric did the first time he met the Vampires.
“Will you two help us deal with the Devil’s prince?”
Sorit couldn't stop the small whimper from rising up in his throat as Dosia petted his snout. She truly was gone now. He flattened his ears against his head and bowed his head, pressing against her arms.
“Dosia, Dosia…” He began to murmur. “You do not have to fool anyone, you are no longer the Kind Hearted Lady… No one has the right to ask this of you… Please don't go to that…. That voice… Dosia it is not… Dosia, dosia…” There was a soft whine behind his pleading and he continued to just ask her not to go.
Morbida made no move to bow down or step back from the possible threat She had some pride, keeping her chin high and not letting her weaknesses get on her way. Boldly, Morbida stared into Eric's eyes and answered clearly. "Th-the d-daughter o-of L-l-lord B-b-hediya. M-m-morbida." She sniffed the scents in the place and realised something. Looking up, she asked. "Y-y-ou t-two sh-share th-the s-s-same s-smell. R-related....w-w-with b--b-blood." Morbida was so sure about her conclusion that didn't wait for an answer and approached him with a hand on her back. "Wh-what a-a-are y-you p-p-planning? M-making a-all th-this sh-show...t-t-o f-fool o-others...a-about..b-being ch-chosen?! L-l-lilith...n-never...ch-chooses...a-anyone...i-it is...n-not...in a...D-dark n-nature. E-especially...S-somebody...t-t-too h-h-human.Th-that s-silly...w-word...o-on y-yes...f-face...." She glared at him like a wild wolf. "M-means y-you're a m-mere s-slave!"
"Watch you tongue, woman." Urla warned her with a growl and then looked away again. "For now, I have to discuss something with me father. I will give him a chance..." His hand wrapped around his sword hilt."To cooperate."
"Oh? Something going on~" An amused Romeo stepped out, making Urla unsheath his sword immediately. "When did you?"
"Hmmm? I am an old man...just strollin' around in boredom but...you seem to have some fun stored for me? A secret...between a son and a traitor Captain~ May I jooooin?" The vampire grinned and gazed at Niva with anything but pure intentions.
Dosia frowned...yes frowned that her wolf was exhausted and couldn't go any further. Such a disappointment he was. "Wasting my time..." She whispered gratefully before blinking in surprise at his sudden questions. For a moment her face became her serious self before she cracked into an unstable laughter. "AHAHAHAHA! Worried, wolf?" She reached up and stroked his snout like he was her tamed dog. "You...you are so right to act like this. Because...Dosia can fool anyone! Even herself!" Giggling, she looked at the dawn and continued with a happy tone. "Our Mother Lilith is waiting for me...to become her vessel because she knows...what a spider I am!" Her gaze became lost in memories. "Dosia...Dosia...spider is cursed...Dosia can never become the queen with a cursed shape...Dosia brings doom in future...Dosia Dosia...obey us...Dosia...make another shape...a fortunate she...to cover your ugliness...a white owl...hail for the queen...the white owl...the shifter with two shapes...Dosia...the Kindhearted Lady. Hush! It is a secret! Bye bye Urla...Nobody should know the pain I went through to learn another shape! The forbidden training!...AHAHAHAHAHHA!" Again Dosia laughed though years were rolling down.
Eric observed her strange braveness, as well as the stutter in her voice and the condition she was in. “Yes.” He said answering her question and making no comment on the second thing she said.
“And you are…?” he asked turning to look over at her, his hands folded behind his back. The eye was hidden by one of his hands and he has left the spear he’d come in with, by the door. But the mother didn't seem to notice it, or even really care that it was there.
As far as Eric could tell anyways.
Niva jumped when Urla rushed forwards suddenly and slammed a hand down near her head. She felt disgusted as he took a breath of her scent and she stood rigid, waiting for him to move back. Her initial shock passed quickly, though it didn't leave her without her doubts if she was doing the right thing.
“I will put one of my Lieutenants on that immediately.” She said in a steely tone. Niva might be strong about what her beliefs were and how she felt, but the other side of her knew how take and follow orders. Even orders she disagreed with.
“As many as five legions.” She answered confidentiality, the entire army. “But that might be a little less now, depending on how many your mutts have killed.” She added, no humor in her voice as she remembered what chaos the capital and surrounding lands were left in by the werewolves.
She met Urla’s gaze for a few long seconds before lowering her eyes, knowing that statement was uncalled for. But it was probably the truth.
Steps slowed as a sleek and strong bodied werewolf stepped out of the winding tunnels and into the twilight of dawn. He was breathing hard and they were still around twenty miles away from the capital. He needed to stall for, some time, as much as he could get. To try again and try to get through to Dosia.
Sorit took a few more steps away from the tunnel before dropping down into a crouch, still holding her as he panted. “I need… some rest… just… just a little….” He said through his heavy breaths and he felt his fur began to rise again as Dosia turned to look at him. Was this how she really was? Was that crazy in her eyes real? The werewolf swallowed nervously and he began to try and get through to the woman he had met only a few days before.
“Please, tell me why we must go… Tell me who is waiting for you! What is calling you there?” He pressed worriedly, anxiety stressed in his voice was he asked, still holding Dosia in his arms.
N.V was still startled when Eric just walked around him. King?! What the hell had just happened? What was with that sign under his eye? He stood back up again and watched him enter the room. There wasn't much he could except finding everyone else in the castle and get more information about the craziness. So he just rushed down the hallway, leaving the shocking news behind.
Urla observed Niva's actions and smirked slightly. "Of course, ruling over ruins is hopeless." Suddenly his palm slammed against the wall next to Niva's head. "Something that dear Dosia, your true owner, was trying to do." He leaned in closely to the captain's face and took a whiff. It was just like a wolf, trying to remember the scent forever. If they were going to work together, he had to be sure whether there were suspicious scent on her or not. Finally, the shifter stepped back and gave his first order. "Get a trustworthy pawn of yours keep an eye on this...demon king. Also, I need to know how many soldiers would be loyal to you to the very end."
Morbida was there in a corner, witnessing the stranger walking into the chambers. She had of course felt the shakes and didn't have the slightest clue about what happened until one of the maid informed her about the arrival of a mysterious man whom her father gladly handed her brother's throne to him. How simple and ridiculous. He may be a demon yet a loss without a good fight sounded so desperate. She was glad that he dismissed the guards This way, she could easily go in. The guards were protesting the way she paid attention to the prisoner.
Morbida breathed deeply and let her hand test on the belly before she entered the room. There, she met [b him] for the first time.
"A-a-a-re Y-you s-s-supppppoused to b-b-be th-the n-ew k-k-king?" She asked with a surprising braveness, stepping forward. "H-he i-i--s d-drugged." She glanced at Joseph, sighing.
