Alina is a 25 year old Vampire who's coronation had just past not even a fortnight ago. She, now the high ruler of the night world, does all she can to keep order, however she is still very naive and stubborn. She is of the "Original's" blood, and therefore next in line to rule.
_______ is considered to be an Ancestor of the Vampires. He is very knowledgeable, yet just as stubborn as well as cynical and sarcastic. With the death of Alina's father, ________has now become the oldest living Vampire to date. Annoyed that the throne was taken by a youngling, he does all he can to torment her, either by starting a ruckus, not obeying rules set forth by her administration, or just plain being rude.
Alina is very annoyed by his presence as he loves to get under her skin. He finds her reactions towards him humorous and doesn't know when to quit. The two do end up falling for each other eventually, however he's still the same man as before, dark and cynical.
Let's see what happens. Please post more then once a day ()
He gave her a grim smile. [+green "You're not going to lose me anytime soon..."] He said, pulling her against him in a tight hug, letting her head rest against him. [+green "I may be getting up in my years, but I've still got plenty of fight in me..."] He said, looking down at her. He felt a little bad for putting her through this, but it was time she learned. He stepped back and looked down at her, giving her a bit of a warmer smile, his gaze finally softening. [+green "I doubt any in this nation could even get close to killing me..."] He said, patting her on the head gently. [+green "Would you like to begin heading back home or stay out a bit longer?"] He asked, standing up straight.
When he first looked at her with his icy glare, she stood ready to fright back with her words. However the more he spoke, the more it made sense to her why he was doing what he was. He was just trying to get her ready for a day where he may not be next to her. Lowing her eyes she didn't want to look at him. Not because she was angry, but because she was fearful. Fearful of the fact she could possibly lose someone again, just like when she lost her father and mother. [b I don't want to practice anymore ] she whispered feeling his hand place gently on her shoulder. [b Do you plan on being killed like my father.....are you going to leave too]
He had turned away from her for a moment, collecting his thoughts. He turned back to her and his gaze was icey. [+green "You are the Queen of one of the most powerful nations in the world. You must always be ready to fight for your life..."] He said, his words cutting like a whip. [+green "I do not know how the other countries will take to you being our Queen So I must make sure you can protect yourself in the case that I am slain."] He said, looking away for a moment. [+green "You will fight many things... Beasts of varying sizes, men, women, and in some cases they will send children after you.."] He said, his voice trailing off as he looked away. He took a step towards her and looked down at her, now towering over her. [+green "I'm not hiding things from you. I just worry..."] He said, shaking his head as he set a hand on her shoulder.
[b If you tell me what I'm getting ready to fight, I'll continue] She said and atood. Meeting his gaze the young woman searched for the answer. [b I's there some war manifesting that I do not know about? You seem keen on making sure I can fight, what is it I should be worried of?] Alina didn't understand want was going on with Finn. One moment he could be gentle and sweet, and the next he was the very thing many in their community feared when it came to am elder. [b I feel like you're hiding something from me]
His eyes widened for a moment before he set one of his hands on her shoulder. [+green "Alina... Sometimes stress is what will cause power to manifest..."] He said, sitting next to her. He looked out into the falls and in his mind he was fighting with himself. When he swung his blade, he had put everything he'd had behind it! She was right... Had that shield not gone up, she would be cut clean in two right now... He couldn't believe he'd done that, but he pushed it aside. [+green "When someone tries to kill you, they will not wait for you to learn what you can do. They will strike when you are weakest. They will use fear and anxiety against you..."] He said, standing up. [+green "Do you want to keep going with the practice?"] He asked, looking down at her, his eyes looking more steely then usual. He was letting his emotions cloud his judgment here and he was pushing it down so he could focus.
The weight of the sword that bashed down felt as if it went through her body. Catching her breath her shield was still up as he walked up to her. Watching him knelt by her side she froze. She couldnt gage his expression. What was that just now? Maybe he was crazy. First the he'll demon then a demon sword? Slowly after a few moments she let her shield down. [b Yes....you are crazy, what if I didn't have my shield up? You could have killed me!] She was trembling and she turned away to look at the water that fell from the cave roof above. [You didn't have to do that] she mumbled feeling like she was going to cry.
As he moved forward slowly, his grin only grew. [+green "Stupid?! Ohh no, I'm crazy!"] He yelled, slamming the blade down towards her. As it hint the glow, the blade bounced off, jarring his arm all the way to his shoulder. He dropped the blade and grimaced. [+green "Damn, that thing is hard!"] He said, smirking a bit as he let his shield drop also. He walked towards her and stopped just out of arms reach. [+green "Alina, you're safe now..."] He said, crouching down in front of her. He held his hand out towards her, hoping she wouldn't hold this against him.
Alina watched as the expression on his face change. A large blackened blade pointed at her. [b Finn....what....what are you doing] Backing up she never let her eyes stray from his weapon. Frantically she tried her best but only flat orbs of light flickered. [b I'm not ready yet, are you stupid what are you doing??] Again she tried to form her sheild. As he moved close to her she began to cry in frustration and fear. She had to succeed otherwise, it would be the end of her. At the very last moment she covered her face with her arms sparking a translucent glow to sheild her body.
He chuckled and swatted her hand away gently. [+green "I feel perfectly fine! It's just a nice change to see you without that scowl lass."] He said, winking at her as he held one arm out, the shield melding back onto him. [+green "Concentrate hard! You need to be able to do this is battle!"] He yelled, leaping backwards before a long great sword seemed to meld from the darkness, creating a demonic blade that he hefted easily. [+green "You'd best hurry... I'll give you ten seconds before I cut you in two!~"] He growled, grinning. He looked completely different now! Had this all been a ruse to kill her and take the throne?!
Alina sat on the ground invisioning the light and darkness around her. Puffs of light would cone from her. Some moment's a glob would form, green and dense. Yet nothing held. At some point she sat quietly and tried to meditate and relax herself in hopes her powers would manifest. Yet as she did so, her ears picked up something Finn had said. [b You're serious.....you think I'm cute??] Her eyes flashes open and all magic around her turn off like and light to a switch. She blinked a couple of times and stood. Walking to his side she placed a hand on his head to feel of he was warm. [b You might be ill....]
He thought for a few minutes. [+green "Something you don't know hmm?"] He paused and his eyes snapped open, looking fresh and clear. He had been using the power around him to wean off the effects of the alcohol! [+green "Now that I can think straight, let's get down to business."] He said, winking at her as he stretched, standing up. He rolled up his shoulders and held his hand out in front of him. [+green "Something easy, but you don't know."] He said, snapping his fingers. A glowing shield seemed to meld from the light and darkness around him, creating a gorgeous kite-shield that was now mounted to his arm. [+green "Pretend you are one with the light and the dark and forge it into a shield of your own creation..."] He said, letting the shield melt from his arm.
As she began practicing, he thought over what he'd said while drunk. [+green "I called her cute? I mean... I'm not wrong..."] He mumbled, chuckling to himself.
She looked at him for a few moments before she suddenly started laughing. [b Say it to me when you haven't drank a drop and maybe I will believe you] She knew alcohol could make people say weird things but she was not to sure if he really meant what he said. Why would he think that of her anyway? She was sure he saw her as a nuisance or a little sister. But suddenly with a cool deminor he was speaking of her looks. Was he, hitting on her? That she didn't know. Closing her eyes one more she calmed down and tried to concentrate. [b Teach me something I don't know Finn]
He chuckled and shifted a bit, his eyes sliding closed. [+green "I don't regret anything I ever say."] He said, smirking a bit as he took a deep breath, feeling his body lighten as he found that comforting power resonating around him. [+green "Besides, so what if I think you're cute?"] He asked, grinning a bit. He had mastered this so even in his tipsy state, keeping this connection was child's play. His mind was racing. What the hell was he saying?! He was supposed to be her teacher, not some guy hitting on her! He mentally shrugged, figuring that if she had a problem with it, she would voice her opinion as she was prone to do.
Alina nodded sitting on the floor aND mimicking his posture. She closed her eyes and tried to feel the environment around her. But suddenly she was caught off guard by his comment. [b huh?] Suddenly she blushe'd and looked away not knowing what he meant by that. [b I think you're going to regret saying that when your head clears....I'm not cute...] She mumbled closing her eyes again though her cheeks still burned red and her hands were clasped hard to her knees. She too could still feel the affects of the alcohol but it wasn't as bad as Finn seem to be.
He smiled down at her and patted her lightly on the head. [+green "Alright... I want you to try and feel the power around us."] He said, sitting down cross legged on the floor, closing his eyes. [+green "Do as I do..."] He said quietly, placing his hands on his knees, his breath steadying. He was still a little tipsy from the alcohol and he could feel it coming back now. [+green "It's hard to concentrate though... I might have drank a bit much..."] He said, his eyes sliding open. He looked at her in front of him and his lips parted into a small smirk. [+green "When Did the lass get so cute...?"] He mumbled, not realizing he'd said it out loud.
