[center [Fredoka+One [size14 You come across a critically injured vampire with a fatal bite wound and his body near burnt to a crisp.

Despite your better judgement to just finish him off and pure hatred for the bloodsuckers who killed your family, you decide to help him. Will you regret it?

~

Liya is a young vampire, fairly new, who was attacked by a wolf and left to burn by the sun. Obviously abandoned, he decides to let himself succumb to his horrible fate.

{Person 1} comes from a long-line of supernatural hunters, set to rid the world of these menacing beings. After watching his family slaughtered by rouge vampires, he's set on killing every single one that crosses his path; good or bad. He's merciless and prefers to be alone.

Will feelings develop between these two while Liya is slowly nursed back to health or will he end up meeting death once again?

It was Liya who suggested he not 'live off' of Nathan, which did put a bit of a quirk to the corner of his mouth at the choice of words. He found a soft bloom of amusement in it, a vampire saying so. "[#00CCFF I'm sure you're more than capable of finding work. I have two facets, officially, to my business.]" The other was his more clandestine work that he did where he could. Owning his own businesses helped, some, but he was a busy man. It helped him not sleep at night. It helped keep things at bay, the busyness.

"[#00CCFF I am a physician, and my funeral services are an extension of that...]" he trailed off a bit, wondering at mentioning his sort of sudden stance on this case, asking these questions. He was an investigator, of course, but sometimes supernatural individuals didn't take well to being [i helped] by someone unassuming like himself. They viewed it more as meddling.

The man tipped his head a bit, curiously. "[#00CCFF Not all hunters are vampires,]" he stated, wondering at the vampire's lack of knowledge on that. Generally they were rather radical mortals, he had found, historically at least. Or not, in his case. Though, that was a personal view.

Dr. Crane sighed, running a hand over his head again, but barely. His fingers didn't do more than brush over until they dipped into the length of his hair, down a bit past his shoulders, and combed them through the end, to catch a lock in his fingers to thumb the end of. "[#00CCFF I don't yet have a theory as to why these attacks are happening. I haven't found a pattern yet...]" the man mused aloud. It was an admittance on his part, thinking aloud for a moment.

He then took pause, realizing something of a rather grievous omittance on his part. "[#00CCFF Does your... family know you are alive?]" he asked, looking over Liya a bit. "[#00CCFF Do you think it would be safe even to tell them you are?]"

[size14 [Righteous [#8a80e6 "Truly deceased.. hmm.."]

He rubbed his chin in deep thought. To be honest, the vampire did not expect to be in this situation at all. Maybe he could change his way of life starting now. It's not like he was squeamish around dead corpses. He has seen death before. [#8a80e6 "I guess I don't have a problem with it,"] he said. [#8a80e6 "If you don't want me to help, it's fine.. and sorry.."] Liya assumed he has been yammering on with many questions without knowing anything. He knows not too much about the outside world or whatever enemies may be lurking out there.

[#8a80e6 "Oh.. ahhm.. it's really a theory. I tend to spew out nonsense which really annoyed my family. I feel it could be possible, but what do I know..?"] He shrugged without a care, obviously more of his personality coming out since he had another chance at life. [#8a80e6 "A lot of eaten corpses were of my kind, pretty sure it wasn't any hunters unless they're cannibals."] He only knew of this because of his father. Liya stayed away from his family as much as possible. His parents only warned him to not go out at night alone. His own mistake for not listening.

[#8a80e6 "I could've been a random victim of such an attack.."]

He had images of the attack, but not many. Only searing pain, snarls, growls and the feeling of cooling flesh, bleeding, stickiness underneath himself on the paving stones, and despair. It was the same thing that he had felt when he had initially came to this one's side.

Nathan quickly released the vampire's hand, warmed by the fresh blood in his body now. His hand returned to fold in front of him.

His head tipped to the side, brows arching. It was really strange how Liya addressed him, as if he were older than him. Truthfully, he had no way of judging this creature's age other than being able to have a rough estimation by how powerful a vampire felt in the back of his head while he stood near them. And this one was healing, still, and so his results would be skewed.

Nathan brushed a hand through his hair, glancing away. "[#00CCFF Well, I tend to be able to take care of my home myself. I don't believe a vampire would be able to assist with my doctoral work...]" He hesitated on asking about his [i other] work, and tried to focus on his day jobs, technically. "[B How comfortable are you with the dead? The truly dead. Deceased.]"

The mortuary would be a good place for a vampire. Keeping him hidden, away from the public, and it would give Armand a hand at the office, at least.

Liya's lack of knowledge on this, and based on what his memories didn't provide about the attack made it clear this wasn't something face to face, and perhaps not premeditated then. Was it random? He hadn't even really seen his attacker, beyond the general dog description, and how big it was.

"[#00CCFF You ask a lot of questions at once,]" he said, inclining his head towards the vampire. His eyes narrowed a little bit at one of them, however. "[#00CCFF I never said whether it was attacking non-humans or not.]" Was that a leap of judgment, or did he know something he wasn't telling him?

"[#00CCFF What makes you say that?]" Nathan's face was carefully neutral, his voice steadier, calmer than before. Most of his questions were leaps of judgment, and his query about it being controlled was interesting.

"[#00CCFF Do you believe you were attacked deliberately?]"

[size14 [Righteous Liya gave a curt bow. [#8a80e6 "Likewise,"] he said. He then shook his hand for good measure as well. A considerate thing to do. He yawned a bit afterwards.

[#8a80e6 "So, Doc, I really hope you don't mind me staying for a while until I figure what to do with myself. Of course, I plan to pull my own weight and not live off you. I could help you with anything."]

It'd be the best thing to do for now. Besides, Nathan seemed to live an interesting life dealing with the supernatural, but it's strange why a doctor would be interested in this type of thing. A small sigh escaped his lips. He sat on the edge of the table this time, arms crossed as if in deep thought. Maybe this was some kind of sign of fate then. A victim the doctor was able to save. [#8a80e6 "Didn't know this has been a problem,"] he said. [#8a80e6 "Is it just vampires? And what is this thing's motive for killing non-humans? It could be something that's being controlled maybe? And I assume you aren't just a normal doctor.."] He was probably asking many questions without knowing anything, but he became interested in this mystery.

Despite him being still angry for being almost completely eaten by some mystery beast, there's something amiss here now. It wasn't just an accident or the beast being hungry, it was intentional.

[right [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/83/42/20/834220263a9142a6ccdf458ae2b02124.jpg]] Nathan nodded his head to the side, understanding the difficulty, and allowing for the hesitation. It had irritated him the evening before. He had known what had happened, and he, in the throes of putting the pieces together, had wanted as many answers as he could get, forgetting the rather [i resilient] nature of vampires sometimes in their human guises.

Cheeky, cheeky answer, he thought to himself. A smile pulled across the man's face at it, before it disappeared. "[#00CCFF Glad to make your acquaintance,]" Nathan said, inclining his head towards Liya "[#00CCFF I am Dr. Nathaniel Crane*.]" He brought his hand out to shake.

The young doctor shifted, taking the cage off of the counter and setting it on the floor. He folded his hands in front of himself as he straightened, returning his gaze to his guest.

"[#00CCFF You're right,]" he responded. "[#00CCFF I could have. You were very near true death.]" The blue-eyed man gestured to Liya. "[#00CCFF However, you aren't the only creature attacked by this [i thing], this big dog you described. You are the only thing that survived an attack, though. That currently makes you my only witness.]"

[size10 *this is a chance, if you'd like, to sort of acquaint Liya with Nathan's profession, if you want. He is a hunter that's a part of The Academy, which is kind of this like wealthy, upper class like coalition of families that investigate, study and respond to all sorts of like supernatural-related incidents and stuff. Otherwise, he's just 'Dr. Crane' if you want to work that into more of a plot-revealed type thing later in the story

[size14 [Righteous Liya nodded. A very horrible state he was in, probably nothing like he looked now since the blood he'd been drinking slowly began to heal him and bring some life back to his skin and eyes.

[#8a80e6 "Ah, I do apologize.. I was in no state to speak and I'm very cautious to strangers, whether nice or not,"] he said. Even moreso now since it wasn't safe out there anymore. Whether he made enemies or not, he should be on his toes from now on.

[#8a80e6 "My name is Liya, a girly name and I hate it but what can I do? And, I'm in a stranger's house, no?"] He smirked, trying to lighten the mood a little with a playful tone in his voice. He stood up and stretched out his arms, actually, his whole body to crack many different bones. A pleased sigh escaped his lips. He felt so much better than the previous night. More energy and feeling like himself again. [#8a80e6 "Are you fascinated with my kind, because why did you keep me alive? You could've easily burned me to ashes to end my suffering in that moment if the sun didn't finish the job."]

Humanlike. Standing. Speaking. Nothing like he was the night prior. They definitely were a sprightly kind of creature, these kind of undead.

The man hummed, watching the vampire eat. His eyes didn't waver, he watched with the casual interest that a man would watch dogs playing.

"[#00CCFF Seems so,]" the man agreed. "[#00CCFF You are a great deal steadier than I last left you.]" He had not introduced himself, and it didn't seem like this vampire cared to introduce his own self either. This could mean many things; the vampire held no fear of him, or simply didn't care for whatever reason- be it something along the lines of seeing him only as a potential victim, little more than food, or for the prior stated reason. Perhaps both. Though he had thanked him.

"[#00CCFF Perhaps then you will answer me, finally,]" he said, closing the cage with the other chicken with a snap. His eyes held seriousness in them, not willing to be denied once again. "[#00CCFF What do I call you?]"

"[#00CCFF Do you know where you are?]"

[size14 [Righteous Crimson hues remained fixated on the clucking chickens. Blood has never appealed to him so much like now, since his body is injured. He'd probably feed through a whole barn of animals if he had access to one. As much as he loved animals, he needed to feed. He bit his bottom lip hard to keep himself composed. He usually fed in private, not liking anyone staring at him in such a state. A beast savagely feeding on an animal's blood. Liya tried to keep his feedings more elegant - if that's even possible. Clean bites are better. He only nodded in silence, following close behind the male as his hands were clasped behind his back.

He only obeyed and did what he was told, having no clue what motives this male had, to keep a vampire in his house. Liya could easily kill him, although Nathan seemed like a person who could protect himself. It can be the other way around too, Nathan could kill him instead.

[i What does he want with me..?] he thought. He sat there at the table with his hands in his lap, waiting for his meal. Afterwards, he should ask what Nathan wants to do with him. Liya has no plans to stay with the male for too long. [#8a80e6 "I'm sorry, I can always go out and feed myself.. you don't have to buy any animals for me,"] he said. [#8a80e6 "Seriously, since I sleep during the day.."] There was enough energy for him to go out and feed. Closing his eyes, he opened them again and stared at the cage. He opened it, reached inside and took the chicken on the right. He gently patted it on its head before fangs pierced through the feathers and flesh.

While he tried to keep it clean, blood dripped off his arms and onto the leather below. He placed the chicken down on the leather, grabbing a napkin to clean himself off. [#8a80e6 "It'll get more expensive since animal blood is not as nourishing, so I can't heal fast enough. Best I go out and feed."]

[right [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/83/42/20/834220263a9142a6ccdf458ae2b02124.jpg]] Nathan had barely made it inside, he hadn't even made it to the door of the study when he heard it open, looking up to see the vampire standing in the doorway to it, staring. Not at him, but at the chickens he had in his hand, the other still unbuttoning his coat. The man approached, too, without word, and simply stared with colorless eyes, hungry eyes.

The mortician, by official profession, shifted the cage away from the creature, holding eye contact. "[#00CCFF Not yet, give me a moment.]"

He was now regretting bringing it in through the entrance way and not the back, in the kitchen, where he would be more willing to let the man simply have it now. However he was standing on top of a carpet he was less than interested in staining with chicken blood.

"[#00CCFF You stay there, I need to set something down before you make a mess.]" The cage was deposited on the floor near to him so that Nathan could shrug out of his coat and hang it up.

Then, taking it up in his hand again, he gestured for the vampire to follow him and went down the hall, past the stairs, and into the back kitchen. There the floor changed from wood to tile, and he set the cage on the center kitchen table, with the fruit and other related things on it.

"[#00CCFF I want you to take one, this night, because I can't afford to keep buying two chickens every day for you. These things are expensive, and I can't keep them chilled long enough to be of any more use after you drain them.]" He had used the previous one for a part of dinner, and had made bone broth. But he could only do so much.

With that, he went to a cupboard, kneeling to it, and fetched out that same bit of embossed leather he had had before, spreading it out on that table. It had clear signs of use on its surface, stains of spilled blood, among the scuffs and scratches. Once that was out, he gestured to the cage for the vampire stranger to take his choice of the fowl before him.

[size14 [Righteous Ever since his attack, the vampire's been having horrible, frightening dreams. He does not understand why. He must've been traumatized since his attack. Whatever tore into him left an impression on him. Each dream seemed worse than the other. Each of them of him being ripped to shreds by a shadowed beast. It may have not been a wolf, but some other beast. Liya didn't know much about the world, not experienced in what creatures lurk out there.

Liya opened his eyes. Onyx hues scanned around the area as he let out a small groan. The sound of chickens reached his ears. His nostrils flared at the scent of their blood. At least they were animals. Nathaniel read his mind or maybe he assumed the vampire didn't care for human blood. He didn't. He never dared to touch a human with these fangs.

He sat up and stared at the cage of chickens. Before he fed, he wanted to change into his clothes. Standing up, he realized he had much more energy than before. Some life and color returned to his skin, giving it some glow than before. He still remained rather skinny and shrunken in a bit. He needed to drink more blood, more often than once a day. At least twice if possible, in small amounts or something. Human blood would've healed him up in one or two days. Sighing a bit, he changed into the clothes given to him, not complaining one bit. This man went out of his way to take care of him, he should be grateful and not bite the hand that feeds him.

Liya's fingers gently gripped at the cage Nathaniel held, eyes practically sparkling with eagerness to feed. He should've taken a bath before changing, but he'd do that later. He needed blood first.

[right [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/83/42/20/834220263a9142a6ccdf458ae2b02124.jpg]] Nathaniel waited for the delirious, he assumed, individual to get around to identifying himself. From the man's point of view all he had was that this young man was a vampire, he could feel his presence in his mind, and he was small compared to the others he had met. And this vampire was white. That was it. He needed something else to go off of so he could manage to perhaps begin to make some research about the situation and what to do, because he did not take this individual a short distance, it was quite the distance.

And it seemed that was all of the information he would receive, as the vampire settled down, closed his eyes and spoke no more.

Nathan's fingers pinched the bridge of his nose with a sigh. One question, stick to one question. He had apparently asked too much with two questions. Frustration tensed in him and he exhaled softly as he felt the undeath consume the slumbering corpse beside him. There would be no more conversation until the next evening.

Standing and gathering his leather mat and the chicken's body, he decided to bring it and begin to pluck it for use later. The nice thing, he had discovered in his time, with vampires that had an affinity for non-human game was their ability to bleed a body. Nathan edged out of the study and closed the door behind him, taking his time to make it quiet.

He stood there, staring into the emptiness of the house's entrance hall, at the carpeting.

"[#00CCFF I have a vampire in my home,]" he murmured to himself, glancing around as if he would be overheard. "[#00CCFF A vampire I scraped off of the street for some dubious purpose.]"

"[#00CCFF What am I going to do with it? With him.]"

The next evening, Liya would awaken to find a large, off-white morning shirt and a pair of pants. The pants were too tall for the thin vampire, but were able to be cuffed, and with a set of suspenders that can be adjusted for the height of the preternatural invalid.

The next evening, certain his home was safe and thus he was well enough to leave and do his daily duties, Nathan returned in the early evening to his home. He was dressed in mourning black, his black satin armband on his arm still as he removed his hat and set it aside. In his hand he had a wicker cage with the sounds of chickens inside. This was going to be a very expensive patient/victim in this investigation.

[google-font 'https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Righteous';]
[size14 [Righteous The question of when he last fed was a difficult one. He doesn't feed enough to keep himself strong. He tends to skip days before feeding himself again. He usually feeds from mice or deers. It's been some time since he fed himself good. Could be a reason why he got attacked so easily. Vampires are good at not getting caught off-guard like that. Pretty sure his family would laugh at him for being so helpless. A small sigh escaped his lips. He should stay here with this.. man, even if they are strangers. Wasn't he running away from home anyway?

He nodded at the offer of clothes. [#8a80e6 "Yeah, I have to return home soon to gather some of my things.."] he murmured. [#8a80e6 "But I can't move until I'm fully healed."]

The vampire remained silent for a good while. Lost in thought. What can he do now? Getting revenge won't make any difference, like he can handle a full group.. of whatever attacked him. [#8a80e6 "If I could stay here for a few days or until I'm healed, I'd be really grateful. No way I can return in this state. Just a simple patching up is fine for me. I need to feed a bit more than usual since it's a bigger wound. Don't stress too much over it. I don't need it stitched."] There was no more skin to stitch anyway. He may have to drink human blood if he wanted to heal faster. Animal blood took too long for wounds such as this.

[#8a80e6 "I think I need to sleep some more.."] He closed his eyes and didn't open them again. He'd be in a deep sleep until it became night again. He'll have a massive hunger when he awakens too. But for now, he needed rest to give his body a chance to focus on healing.

The doctor's eyes were a startling, saturated blue against his skin and the dark hair. He blinked at the young creature before he had to return his gaze to what he was doing. Long fingers were at first cleaning, and then hesitated over the mouth of the bag, a case of needles awaiting opening for use. A frown purses the skin between his brows and he looks to him agan.

"[#00CCFF When was the last time you fed?]" he asked. He didn't want to stitch up the vampire if it would do something to his natural healing capabilities. He had done that before, he had seen it. He didn't want to see it again.

"[#00CCFF I can give you some clothes for the evening, if you're amenable,]" the man said, looking to the vampire. Odd he wasn't asking his name, though Nathan hadn't asked his either he supposed. "[#00CCFF I don't think you're going anywhere anytime soon, with the onset of morning.]"

Nathaniel nodded towards the vampire as he explained what happening to him. He was attentive until Liya started explaining that he was dragged, and with that, his eyes unfocused. He envisioned this, after a quick glance over of the young man before him. Something of that mass and weight must have been an impressive individual specimen. He hummed.

He hummed again, nodding his head to the side with a shrug and a bit of a scrunch of his nose. "[#00CCFF Not natural enemies, really, more opposing forces of preternatural-]" he glanced at the vampire, clearing his throat and realizing he was- this tasted like the beginning of a tangent. "[#00CCFF spectrum...]"

"[#00CCFF What do I call you?]"

[size14 [Righteous Sighing, Liya heeded the warning. Maybe he should've started with [i I come in peace]. It's obvious he's different from other pureblood vampires or vampires in general. Assuming his family doesn't want him anymore, makes him disowned. He holds no title or respect to his name. He never wanted to know his last name either. He missed his dog friend. He wouldn't mind having any kind of friend for that matter. Eyes watched the male with much curiosity. He wondered what this man did for a living. Can't be an average joe.

[#8a80e6 "I can do that much.."] He pulled off his dirtied and thoroughly ripped top, placing it to the side. He reached into his pocket, finding his wallet. At least he had some cash to use to buy some new clothes. He felt uncomfortable staying here with a complete stranger. He removed his hand so Nathan could patch him up. He wondered if vampires scar if a wound such as this one is made.

[#8a80e6 "It bit me from behind and practically dragged me until I managed to throw it off me. From what I remember, it resembled a wolf."] He clenched his teeth. [#8a80e6 "I don't know much, my parents only told me to avoid wolves. We must be natural enemies if all I did was mind my own business."] It's not like he wasn't angry at being randomly attacked, but he's surprised they would attack out in the open like that. He watched him beginning to clean his wound. It was a deep bite, clotted teeth marks visible. It did not hurt as much anymore, only when he touched it.

[right [pic https://i.pinimg.com/564x/83/42/20/834220263a9142a6ccdf458ae2b02124.jpg]] Nathan drew near, now. Closer to a vampire than he would generally venture. This one was young, hurt. He didn't have the drowning eyes that the ancient ones had. He, even, still had an amount of 'life' in his animation. Still socialized like a human being. He didn't yet have the stillness that only the dead have.

"[#00CCFF Now,]" the man said, "[#00CCFF how could you say that? You don't know what I know, what I've seen. Very assumptive of you.]" Nathan's tone was light, on the surface. But underneath his tone held a bit of warning. Even mortal, he wouldn't stand to be treated like a lesser being. Not when he verily held this one's life in his hands. Nobility, blood, and species didn't matter when there was something like this at hand, he liked to think. He wasn't about to indulge a firstborn vampire noble his act of superiority.

But, he did presently procure the bag he carried with himself. A leather satchel with a five pointed star on it. As he spoke, from inside of it he brought out some supplies. "[#00CCFF Can you undress yourself, or shall I assist you while I bandage this?]" he asked, letting his tone slip back into doctor-patient now with his little warning out of the way.

"[#00CCFF Did you actually see what attacked you?]" the man asked as he reached for something to clean the wound with. Nothing antiseptic, as he viewed the dead body of a vampire something that infection couldn't touch. But, cleaning it gently would give him a better view, and a better chance at patching it properly. 'Feral form' was new terminology for him. He assumed it meant in the beast's body. For this had hallmarks of a lycanthrope attack, based on his experience. Middle of a town, no marks of pack involvement, the unlikelihood of there being large natural predators in a place like this.
