Maybe they were looking [i too] closely into this so called psychic link they had. Maybe there wasn't anything there. But, when Xion frantically calls his twin saying he may have murdered someone, all while Dongmyeong had finished killing off a vampire that he had been sent to kill, things take a dark turn. What will happen to the two brothers? Let's find out.

Wow, that plot planning took a dark turn.

Hello! Author-nim here with a story that is basically a spinoff from my current wolfau series! This will [i not] be canon to what I already established for Xion and his twin, but you will see some characters from my current series pop up in this story!

To explain, twins are rare in the supernatural world. When they are born sometimes the older twin is left to live while the younger twin gets killed off, usually before they start changing. This almost happened with Xion and Dongmyeong but Xion managed to get out in time before it could happen and Dongmyeong was led to believe that his brother was killed, thus giving him the reason to become a werewolf hunter. They met again at the end of Wooshin's story which can be found [https://www.asianfanfics.com/story/view/1408556/a-tale-of-two-packs here]!

To explain the psychic link, Xion suffers from insomnia while Dongmyeong suffers from narcolepsy. How does this link them together? Dongmyeong is constantly tired, sleeping at random times of the day while Xion is the one stuck wide awake. When Xion does sleep he blanks out, his mind just going into a state of unconsciousness and that lets him sleep for at least an hour. During this time Dongmyeong is completely wide awake, but the only time he feels like this is if he's doing missions, or is traveling and needs to be awake for most of it.

I would like to reiterate that this is [i not] canon to my current wolfau series and it is just a spinoff! Happy reading~!

Now onto the characters~!

[center Characters:]

Xion: A pure blooded werewolf who is the younger twin between himself and Dongmyeong. For years, he believed that his twin was dead until recently when they finally met each other again and is quite happy to be around his twin again. He suffers from insomnia, which his own pack believes that is somehow linked with his brother who suffers from narcolepsy. Sleep is near impossible for him, as he never really [i sleeps], he just blanks out and comes to whenever his twin is done with whatever he is doing. Sometimes he dreams from his brother's POV, which is odd even for him because as far as he knew, that wasn't supposed to happen. He is a vampire hunter, being on the same team as his twin and is also being guided by his mentor Hwanhee. He is apart of his brother's faction. His wolf form is a small white wolf with a silver tint from him dying his hair a dull gray color even though he recently dyed his hair back to brown.

Dongmyeong: A pure blooded werewolf who is the older twin between himself and Xion. He had been led to believe that Xion was killed because his home pack believed that he would be the stronger twin. He suffers from narcolepsy, being exhausted all the time and sleeping throughout the day despite getting a normal amount of sleep every night. He feels bad for Xion though, and makes some effort to be more wide awake so Xion can get some semblance of sleep, despite it not working very well. He is only really wide awake when doing missions, being a vampire hunter. He was a werewolf hunter, the resulting supposed murder of Xion making him go on a rampage to kill his home pack and was forced to become a werewolf hunter or be killed. After being reunited with Xion, he became a vampire hunter, being a part of his own faction. His wolf form is a large black wolf with a large scar going down his back seen in his wolf and human forms.

Hwanhee: A shapeshifter who sort of became a mentor for the twins. He wasn't sure why, but he figured he could help them, and try to find a balance between the whole psychic link that seemed to exist between the two of them. He is part of a 'shifter pack that is now led by Xiao, and is mated to Jinwook. He is a vampire hunter who used to be a part of the Treasure Box faction before joining Dongmyeong's faction after it had been approved to move to the vampire hunting association as an official vampire hunting faction. His animal form is a large lion with a dark brown mane.

I hope you enjoy the story~!

"What, you're leaving?" Asked Xiao as he turned to Dongmyeong. "For a little while," said Dongmyeong. "I have a pack to find," he added. "I'll be back as soon as possible, I swear," he said. "I have a promise to keep after all," he added. Xiao nodded. "Tell Changhyun we say hello," he said. "I'm surprised he's not back yet," said Dongmyeong as he shook his head. "I'm sure he'll be heading home as you arrive at your destination," said Xiao. "Good luck then," he said. Dongmyeong nodded. "Thanks," he said.

Arriving in Germany always scared the hell out of Dongmyeong. He was never really sure why before, but now he was sure of why. This was the last place Xion had been at before Dongmyeong ended his life. Now he was returning to find what was left of his old pack.

"I'm leaving as you're arriving then," came a familiar voice, causing Dongmyeong to turn to it, spotting Changhyun. "Hey," Dongmyeong said with a grin. "Finally heading home?" He asked. "Yeah," Changhyun said, scratching the back of his head. "Good, everyone keeps asking me when you were coming back," he said. Changhyun snorts. "Well, I'm heading back now," he said. "Good," said Dongmyeong.

"What brings you back to Germany? And without Hwanhee?" Asked Changhyun. "Hwanhee took a break from hunting," said Dongmyeong. "And I'm here to find my old pack," he added. "I figured I'd stop here first before asking Wooseok," he said. "I see, I'll leave you to it then," said Changhyun. Dongmyeong nodded and walked away, heading out of the terminal and taking a taxi to the coffee shop.

"Well, I can tell you one thing," said Moonbin as he came to sit down in front of Dongmyeong. "Your pack wasn't hard to find," he said. "Really?" Asked Dongmyeong. "After Harin's stunt the others kind of just showed up," said Moonbin. "They're one of the few packs living just outside of Berlin, with our permission of course," he added. "Harin left them and they had nowhere else to go," he said. "They became errand runners for the packs around Germany now," he said. "I see," hummed Dongmyeong.

"They should be coming in in a bit," said Moonbin. "So wait a few minutes hm?" He asked. "I will," said Dongmyeong. Moonbin nodded, getting up and headed back to the counter.

Dongmyeong wasn't sure what to feel when he heard the door chime and in walked Yonghoon, who he hadn't seen in ages. Kanghyun was next, and then Giwook, who had been the youngest in their pack. Dongmyeong hid behind a cup of coffee as he brought it up to his lips and took a sip.

"What did you need us for?" Asked Yonghoon as he walked up to the counter. "Was going to send you out on delivery but we already have people on that," said Moonbin as he checked to see what they needed. "Ah, but you have someone asking for you," he added, motioning to Dongmyeong's table. "Why don't you go say hello," he said. Yonghoon blinked, turning around and spotting Dongmyeong who was still hiding behind his cup of coffee. "Go," encouraged Moonbin. "He's been looking for you for a bit now," he added.

Yonghoon walked over, sitting in front of Dongmyeong who put down his cup of coffee. "Long time no see, hyung," said Dongmyeong as he smiled slightly. "Well, look who finally decided to show up," Yonghoon said with a snort, reaching over and patting Dongmyeong on the shoulder.

"You're not mad that I'm back?" Asked Dongmyeong as he blinked. "No, not at all," said Yonghoon. "We heard of what happened between you and your brother," he said. "He seemed like a nice guy," he added.

"It's good to have you back," said Kanghyun as he walked over with Giwook and their coffees. "Unfortunately I'm not staying," said Dongmyeong. "I have a promise to keep," he added. "Ah, it's a shame," said Yonghoon. "How long are you around for?" He asked. "For a few weeks," said Dongmyeong. "I have a few small missions to do," he added. "So I won't be around for that long," he said.

"So what kind of promise did you make?" Asked Yonghoon. "To keep an eye on a friend," said Dongmyeong. "He must be important hm?" Asked Giwook. Dongmyeong nodded. "We'll come visit someday," said Yonghoon. "Just be happy," he said.

"You really stepped up to the plate hm?" Asked Dongmyeong. Yonghoon grinned. "I've been on great terms with everyone, and they agreed that I'd be the alpha," he said. Dongmyeong chuckled.

Spending the few weeks with his old pack was honestly different for Dongmyeong. It was like nothing had changed, and he had never left. However, things had to come to an end and Dongmyeong had to return to the states, the longing to be near Hwanwoong again finally starting to affect his mood after he finally finished his missions.

"We'll see you around," said Yonghoon. "And next time, bring your friend around will you?" He asked. "Yeah yeah," said Dongmyeong. "Just don't scare him off," he said with a snicker. "Oi," said Giwook as he pretended to look offended. "We're not [i that] bad," he said. "Yonghoon and I aren't maybe," Kanghyun said with a snicker, earning a punch in the arm from Giwook.

"Have fun," said Yonghoon. "Yeah yeah," said Dongmyeong as he waved before entering the airport terminal.

[center ~]

Hwanwoong was waiting for him at the airport, tackling Dongmyeong as soon as he got close enough. "I missed you," mumbled Hwanwoong. "I know," said Dongmyeong as he patted Hwanwoong on the shoulder. Xiao and Kogyeol walked over, shaking their heads at Hwanwoong's antics. Hwanwoong had the decency to blush as he moved away, keeping an arm around Dongmyeong's shoulder.

"The other sketches were hung up," said Xiao. "Really?" Asked Dongmyeong. "I helped!" Said Hwanwoong as he grinned. "Nice," said Dongmyeong.

[center ~]

When they got home Dongmyeong immediately went to check on the sketches, taking in each one. The one with everyone in their wolf and animal forms was front and center, while the ones featuring each pack in a separate sketch was on either side of it. "Ah, nice," he hummed.

"Going out to see your friend?" Asked Xiao as he walked over. "After unpacking," said Dongmyeong as he nodded, going to do so. "Can I come along?" Asked Hwanwoong. "Sure," said Dongmyeong.

"I think this the last time you will see him," hummed Hwanwoong as he walked with Dongmyeong to the pond. "It is getting closer to winter time," agreed Dongmyeong.

There was a different fox waiting for them this time, a much younger one who immediately walked over to Dongmyeong. "Oh, a new fox," hummed Dongmyeong as he bent down, petting the fox on the head. "Huh," said Hwanwoong as he bent down beside Dongmyeong and held out his hand for the fox to sniff.

"You know," said Dongmyeong as he handed the new fox a piece of jerky before standing and going to stand by the water. "I think things will get better," he said. Hwanwoong walked over to stand beside Dongmyeong. "Yeah, they will," he hummed, looking up at the sky.

"Are you happy Xion?" Dongmyeong asked as he looked up at the clouds floating by. "I'd hope so anyway," he added. "I'm sure that where ever he is, he's happy," said Hwanwoong. Dongmyeong hummed in response.

In the months following Xion's death turned out to be different for Dongmyeong. It was almost like he had been cured from his narcolepsy, but other than that he didn't feel too different. The only thing Dongmyeong had left of his brother, other than his sketchbook, was a large claw mark going down his left cheek from where he had been scratched.

Hwanhee was in one of those moods, just wanting to get these missions over with so he could go home. The sketchbook left behind by Xion was kept safe with Dongmyeong who made sure that nothing happened to it.

Spain was fine, Sungjin had been a gracious host and let them stay in Barcelona for the duration of their stay. By the time they had gotten there everyone had heard about what happened and everyone could only try and make things easier for the team that now consisted of just Hwanhee and Dongmyeong.

Going from Spain to the U.K. was a bit different for Dongmyeong. He got to catch up with Kwangsuk and his team who were one of the very first teams that Dongmyeong met after becoming a werewolf hunter. Donghun could sympathize with Dongmyeong because of his own brother Woojin still being in the world as a vampire hunter. The missions went fine though, and it was enough to get them home.

[center ~]

Returning home was a disaster for Dongmyeong. Gunhak had slammed Dongmyeong into the wall, snarling in his face. "You killed our youngest," he snarled. "You could've done [i something]," he spat. "Oi," said Xiao as he dragged Gunhak away from Dongmyeong. "Leave it," he said. Dongmyeong slid to the floor in shock, speechless as he stared up at the scene before him.

"How do you think [i he] felt as his [i brother]?" Asked Xiao. "You think he [i wanted] to do that?" He asked. "He has [i no] reason to be here anymore," spat Gunhak. "I vote him out," he said. "Well, this is [i my] decision," growled Xiao. "And I say he stays," he said. "If I recall he has no ties here now, which puts him under my jurisdiction," he said.

"He stays, we leave," said Gunhak. "Fine," said Xiao. "Leave the only form of protection you have against werewolf hunters," he said. "You guys aren't safe from this either you know," he said. "Xion was your only way of being safe, and Dongmyeong never joined your pack, he was here because of Xion," he said.

"I guess, the drawing he made doesn't matter to you anymore then," said Dongmyeong. "He finished it?" Asked Xiao as he turned to Dongmyeong. Dongmyeong nodded, getting to his feet. "I was gonna give it to them, since it was made for them but," he said. "He finished several," said Hwanhee as he shrugged, walking over. "But the one that shows his own pack doesn't matter anymore I guess," he said.

"I'm staying," said Hwanwoong. "Xion would've wanted us to stay," he said. "I am too," said Youngjo. "Think this through, this wasn't Dongmyeong's fault," he said. "You wouldn't understand," said Dongmyeong. "How it [i felt] to kill your own sibling because of something like [i that]," he said. "Give it some thought, before leaving," he said.

[center ~]

Dongmyeong looked down at the sketchbook that was sitting on the desk that Xion used when he couldn't sleep. It was open to one of the drawings, one that was left partially colored because it had been started the day he had been killed.

"Are you gonna finish coloring it?" Asked Hwanwoong as he walked over and looked over Dongmyeong's shoulder. "I don't know," said Dongmyeong. "I think he'd want you to," said Hwanwoong. "It has all of us, in our animal and wolf forms," he said. "See, these two?" He asked, pointing to the head of a polar bear and a lynx that was front and center of the page. "That's Wooseok and Jinhyuk," he said. "My pack and I are here," he said, pointing to different wolf heads in the lower left corner. "But he put you and Hwanhee over here," he said, pointing to the lion and another wolf head a bit to the right of Wooseok and Jinhyuk. Dongmyeong hummed in response.

"Ah, here's himself and Xiao," said Hwanwoong. "He colored them first it looks like," he said, pointing to two wolf heads to the left of Jinhyuk and Wooseok. "And then there's the rest of the 'shifters under them," he said. "I'm surprised you know everyone," said Dongmyeong. "It's pretty easy to know who is who, you just gotta be observant," Hwanwoong said with a chuckle. "Here, I'll help you color in the rest," he said, going to get the markers.

[center ~]

Xiao held up the picture frame of the finished colored sketch of everyone in their animal and wolf forms, nodding his approval before hanging it up in the livingroom. "He did a good job," he said. "He really knew how to pick out the correct color fur for everyone," agreed Hwanhee as he looked at the picture. "Well, he had help," said Hwanwoong as he grinned in triumph.

"Where is Dongmyeong anyway?" Asked Xiao as he turned to Hwanwoong. "He went out to the pond," said Hwanwoong. "Something about seeing an old friend or something," he added. "Hm, I see," said Xiao as he turned to look at the picture again, adjusting it slightly before moving back to admire it.

[center ~]

Dongmyeong stood at the pond again with his hands in his hoodie pockets, wondering if his little fox friend would remember him after being away for so long. "I hope so," grumbled Dongmyeong as he picked up a rock and skipped it across the water.

There, familiar pawsteps alerted Dongmyeong to a visitor and Dongmyeong couldn't help the smile that appeared, turning and spotting the fox. "Hey little guy," he said, bending down when the fox went up to him. "I'm back," he said, reaching out to pet it.

"You wouldn't believe the hell I went through the passed few months," he said, reaching into his pants pocket and taking out a piece of jerky before handing it to the fox and watching as the fox grabbed it and moved away to eat it. "I think I'm crazy to be talking to a fox, but," he said, shrugging as he stood and turned back to the pond. "I'm not even human, so what's crazy anymore?" He asked, putting his hands in his hoodie pockets.

"You're right, you are crazy for talking to a fox," came Hwanwoong's voice as he walked over with his hands in his hoodie pockets. "Am I needed for anything?" Asked Dongmyeong as he turned his head to look at Hwanwoong. "No, no," said Hwanwoong as he shook his head. "Everyone was curious about this friend of yours," he said. "Oh?" Asked Dongmyeong.

"People came out here while you were gone to try and spot the fox," said Hwanwoong as he motioned to said fox. "But it never came," he said. "Now that you're here it's here," he said. Dongmyeong chuckled some. "Xion saw him before," he said. "He and Kogyeol did," he added. Hwanwoong hummed, going to stand beside Dongmyeong.

"Things are going to be different now," Dongmyeong said suddenly. "I know," said Hwanwoong. "I'm here, as you will be for me I suppose," he said. "No one would believe we were mates anyway," he said with a snort. "We hide it too well," agreed Dongmyeong.

"Was Xion's last words really to stay for me?" Asked Hwanwoong. Dongmyeong nodded. "I don't think he knew, but it's possible," he said. "He said that you needed me more now, since he'll be gone," he said. Hwanwoong hummed.

"Well," said Dongmyeong as he turned to watch the fox head back to where ever it came from. "Let's see where everything goes from here then?" He asked, turning to Hwanwoong. "Of course," said Hwanwoong.

"To our future then," said Dongmyeong as he held out a hand. "To our future," said Hwanwoong as he shook hands with Dongmyeong.

Dongmyeong was in a rush to get to where Xion was, and seeing that the bloody footsteps turned into pawsteps really made him fear the worst as he ran faster, pushing himself forward. "Don't be what I think it is... Don't be what I think it is," he repeated. "Oi oi, slow down!" Said Hwanhee. "We have to get there before he does something stupid!" Dongmyeong shouted back. "He's right," said Wontak as he kept pace with Hwanhee. "The longer it takes to find him the more damage he could do," he said, pushing himself forward. Hwanhee huffed, pushing himself forward to try and catch up with the two werewolves.

"Dongju!" Shouted Dongmyeong as he came upon Xion in his wolf form finishing off a kill. Xion snapped out of it, backing away with small whimpers escaping him as he saw the carnage. Dongmyeong collapsed to his knees, feeling the exhaustion wash over him at the worst time possible. "God damn it," he whimpered out as Xion ran over to him. Dongmyeong hugged Xion, clutching at his fur. "It's going to be okay... It's going to be okay," he said, trying to reassure Xion.

Hwanhee and Wontak appeared a few seconds later, Wontak cursing rather loudly as he saw the carnage before him. Hwanhee paced back and forth, grumbling out curses as he tried to think of what to do next.

"Dongmyeong," Wontak said after a few minutes. "You know what happens next," he said. "I can't... I can't..." Said Dongmyeong. "Please don't do this," he whimpered out as he hugged Xion tighter. "Give them a few minutes will you?" Asked Hwanhee. "It's the least you can do," he added. Wontak sighed. "I guess," he said.

Xion returned to his human form, wrapping his arms around Dongmyeong. "I'm sorry," he said. "I'm so sorry," he repeated. "It's okay... It's okay," mumbled Dongmyeong.

"Do me a favor," said Xion. "What is it?" Asked Dongmyeong. "Take care of Hwanwoong," said Xion. "He needs you, now that I'm not going to be there," he mumbled. "I will," said Dongmyeong. "Don't leave the pack either, they need you now that I'm going to be gone," said Xion. "...I can't guarantee that," said Dongmyeong. "Please..." Said Xion. Dongmyeong sighed. "Okay," he said.

Wontak walked over. "You two good now?" He asked. "Yeah," said Dongmyeong. Xion nodded as he moved away from Dongmyeong. "I'll do it," said Dongmyeong as he wiped his face with his hand. "Are you sure?" Asked Wontak. "Yes," said Dongmyeong. "We once made a promise to each other that if something like this would happen then we would end the other's life," he said. "It's like we both trained for this," Xion said with a snort. "It does seem like it hm?" Dongmyeong said with a humorless chuckle.

"I can't believe it came down to this though," said Dongmyeong. "I even have my knife on me still," he said, reaching over for the hidden knife in a holster in his pants. Xion eyed the knife before shaking his head. "Time to get it over with then," he said.

Dongmyeong let out a deep breath as he got up. "I'm here on back up," said Wontak as he eyed Xion. "Thanks, but I got this," said Dongmyeong as he nodded. "I just don't want you to suddenly hesitate because it's your brother," said Wontak. Dongmyeong sighed. "I got this, don't worry," he said. Wontak hummed, nodding. Dongmyeong turned to Xion, who got to his feet after changing to his wolf form.

"Aish," said Dongmyeong as he tried to concentrate. "Narcolepsy has the worst timing," he said, rubbing his eyes with the back of his hand before focusing his mind to trick it into his hunting mode. As it was happening Xion's fur stood on end as he bared his teeth, snarling. "Well," said Dongmyeong. "This is both our hunting modes then?" He asked, gripping onto the knife handle as he kept the blade even with his arm. "It's a shame, we really would've made the perfect team," he said. Xion wasted no time and launched himself at Dongmyeong.

Dongmyeong countered by slashing down with the knife, dodging out of the way of Xion. Xion was quick on his feet as he managed to only get a small cut on his front leg as he turned towards Dongmyeong and slammed into him. Dongmyeong fell to the ground with Xion on top of him, snarling and clawing at him. "Oh no you don't," he said as he kept Xion at arms length away.

"Going down fighting eh?" Asked Dongmyeong as he brought the knife down on Xion's shoulder, earning a slash to the face before he managed to kick Xion off him. "Aish, damn you," said Dongmyeong as he got to his feet, wiping the blood away from his eye. "My favorite knife too," he growled. Xion snarled at him, launching himself at Dongmyeong and Dongmyeong managed to jump out of the way, grabbing the knife and yanking it out of Xion's shoulder.

"Damn you Dongju," said Dongmyeong, causing Xion to snap out of it. "You really are a pain to kill you know," he said, huffing as he fell to his knees. "I forgot that this happens," he said, getting to his feet again with a little difficulty. Xion whined. "I know, I know," said Dongmyeong. "I need to finish the job," he said, taking a deep breath. "But can I?" He asked.

Xion answered by launching himself at Dongmyeong and Dongmyeong was forced to bring up the knife in self defense and Xion barreled into him, knocking Dongmyeong onto his back. Xion struggled for a second as Dongmyeong forced the knife deeper into Xion's stomach. After a minute Xion went still and Dongmyeong moved the heavy body off him, laying there breathless afterwards.

Wontak walked over and held out a hand. Dongmyeong grabbed it and Wontak pulled him to his feet, letting go afterwards. "Good job," said Wontak. "Thank you," said Dongmyeong as he turned to Xion's body. "You're getting sloppy kid," said Wontak. "Oi," grumbled Dongmyeong as he wiped his face with the back of his hand. "At least the scratches stopped bleeding," he said. He went over and grabbed the knife, taking it out of Xion's body and wiping the blade off his pants. "It's yours then," he said as he turned to Wontak. "Of course," said Wontak.

Hwanhee walked over as Dongmyeong put the knife back in its holster. "We have missions to finish," he said. "Of course we do," said Dongmyeong as he turned to Hwanhee. "We'll have time to grieve after we head home," he said. "Yeah," said Hwanhee.

"Well," said Wontak. "I'll see you two around," he said. "If I'm in the area of your territory I'll stop by," he said. Dongmyeong nodded. "I'd like that, but let Xiao know first of course," he said. Wontak nodded.

"Let's go then," said Hwanhee. "Right," said Dongmyeong as he left with Hwanhee.

"GOD DAMN IT!" Shouted Dongmyeong as he came upon a gruesome scene again. "It happened again?!" He asked. "[i Why]?! We were [i so] god damn careful this time!" He said, throwing his hands up in desperation.

Dongmyeong's shouts brought over Hwanhee and Wontak who cursed at the scene. "We tried, we tried so hard," whimpered Dongmyeong as he fell to his knees, punching the ground with his fists.

[center ~A couple days earlier~]

Xion was being quiet, looking out the window of the train they were in as it headed towards their destination. His sketchbook laid on the folding table in front of him but he didn't draw, he just fiddled with the pen in his hand as he stared off into space. Dongmyeong was sleeping in the seat beside him, a rare sight for them as it was usually Xion who slept when they traveled. Xion couldn't sleep, so he let Dongmyeong sleep this time.

"Care to share your thoughts?" Asked Hwanhee when he came to sit down across from Xion, bringing over a cup of coffee for them both. "I'm just thinking," hummed Xion as he turned to look at Hwanhee before spotting the cup of coffee. He grabbed it and took a sip before setting it down and looking down at the blank page he was on. Hwanhee hummed, nodding as he turned to look out the window.

"What's going to happen to me?" Xion asked suddenly, earning a slightly startled look from Hwanhee as he turned to Xion. "What do you mean?" Asked Hwanhee. "I-If it happens again, what's going to happen?" Asked Xion.

"To be honest, I don't know," Hwanhee answered truthfully. "I've never had a situation like this come up, I doubt any team has," he added. "But from what I've managed to gather, it won't end well if it happens again," he said. "Oh," mumbled Xion. "We'll go the extra length, don't worry," said Hwanhee. "I told you we'd be running into other teams, and our next stop has a team waiting for us," he said Xion nodded. "I'm going to the bathroom," he said, getting up and maneuvering around Dongmyeong before heading over to where the bathrooms were.

Hwanhee watched him go before turning his attention to Dongmyeong. "You were awake weren't you?" He asked. "Nothing can get passed you can it?" Asked Dongmyeong as he opened his eyes, stretching in his seat as he turned to Hwanhee. Hwanhee smirked. "I may not be that good at tracking but I could tell that you were awake," he said. "Of course," Dongmyeong said with a chuckle. Hwanhee chuckled, taking a sip of his coffee as he turned his attention back to the window.

"Who are we meeting?" Asked Dongmyeong. "I think you may know him," said Hwanhee as he turned to Dongmyeong. "Who is it?" Asked Dongmyeong. "Wontak," said Hwanhee. "Oh, him!" Said Dongmyeong. "We were on the same initiation mission," he said. "I remember him," he said.

"I wasn't aware that he called Germany home," he said. "He doesn't," said Hwanhee. "But he happened to be in the area," he said. "We'll meet him at the next stop," he said. "I wonder how he's holding up," hummed Dongmyeong as he looked thoughtful.

Xion came back to his seat, maneuvering to sit down in his spot by the window. He went back to staring off into space, zoning out. Dongmyeong found himself being wide awake again as he blinked. "I guess it's my turn to be awake for a bit," he said. Hwanhee hummed. "We're almost there," he said. "So not for much longer," he said. Dongmyeong hummed in response.

When they reached their destination Hwanhee took the leader position again as he got the twins off the train. There was someone waiting for them on the platform, standing with his arms crossed as he waited for them. Dongmyeong was the first to spot them, a grin appearing on his face as he recognized who it was.

"Wontak!" Said Dongmyeong. "Hey," Wontak said with a grin, letting his arms fall to his side as he walked over to them. "Long time no see kid," he said. "Oi, I'm not [i that] much younger than you," said Dongmyeong as he scowled, earning a chuckle from Wontak.

"I heard you went to the other side," said Wontak. "Yeah," said Dongmyeong as he scratched the back of his head. "I was lucky enough to get onto a team," he said. "I see," hummed Wontak as he spotted Hwanhee and Xion.

"Wontak," said Hwanhee. "Hello," said Wontak. "A deal is a deal I suppose," he said. "I'll help you, but you have to help me in return," he said. "Isn't that how it usually goes?" Asked Hwanhee as his expression turned serious. "Of course," said Wontak. "We'll talk details at the hotel, come on," he said as he turned and walked away. Hwanhee, Xion and Dongmyeong followed after him.

"Everyone is on their toes," said Wontak as they entered his hotel room. "The werewolf hunters especially, after hearing of what happened anyway," he added. "One more screw up like that? He's done for," he said, nodding his head towards Xion. "It won't happen," growled Dongmyeong. "We don't know that," said Xion. "Xion's right," said Hwanhee.

"Best case scenario this is the last time this happens and you can finish your missions and go home," said Wontak. "Worst case, well I'm here for that," he said. "Yedam himself sent me to keep an eye on you, I even have the mission details here," he said, tossing a folder at Hwanhee who caught it and opened it up, reading the papers inside.

"You understand now? How serious this situation is?" Asked Wontak as Hwanhee handed the folder to Dongmyeong and Xion to read. "They sent the best person for the job," remarked Hwanhee. Wontak snorts. "I'm not the best, that title belongs to the two brothers, Yuvin and Kookheon," he said. "I'm the best at what I do because I know how we work," he said. "I have yet to fail a mission due to a tiny mistake," he said.

"Here's how we do this," said Wontak, leaning against the back of the chair he sat down in. "I'll take Xion with me," he said. "Take out the werewolf I was sent after," he added. "And then we'll go for your vampires in this country," he said. "Let you two rest for the afternoon," he said. "If nothing happens, we'll continue on," he said.

"What are we doing?" Asked Xion. "I'm seeing how you do in battle," said Wontak. "You were trained as a fighter weren't you?" He asked. Xion nodded. "I want to see how you fare against another werewolf," said Wontak. "So I'm letting you take this mission," he added. Xion blinked.

"I'm seeing what is triggering your... Killing sprees," explained Wontak. "If we can get to the bottom of it, we can prevent more from happening," he said. "I see," said Xion.

"I'd like to go now if you don't mind," said Wontak. "I'm fine with that," said Xion as he nodded. "Well, let's go," said Wontak before he got up and left the room. Xion turned to Hwanhee, a bit hesitant. "Go," said Hwanhee. "Wontak knows what he's doing," he said. "I wouldn't be leaving you with him if that wasn't the case," he added. Xion nodded and left, heading to the mission with Wontak.

[center ~]

Wontak came back with Xion a couple hours later, a successful mission finished. "Not bad," said Wontak. "Almost like you have a natural knack for hunting," he said. "Very few are like that," he added. "That's what I thought," said Xion. "I'll let you keep the bounty," said Wontak. "I see why you trained to be a fighter," he said. "I think you and your brother would make a great team one day," he said.

"Anyway," said Hwanhee. "What did you do?" He asked. "I just took care of the werewolf Wontak was sent after," Xion said, shrugging. "Did a pretty good job I'd say," said Wontak. "Now we need to go after your vampire," he said.

"What are we doing from here?" Asked Hwanhee. "We'll leave Xion here," said Wontak. "And take out your vampires in town," he said. "Are you sure that's a good idea?" Asked Dongmyeong. "We're in a small town, and your vampire is outside the town," said Wontak. "There isn't a blood den around the town from what I can see so we're fine," he said. "I did my research," he said. "We'll take extra measures," he added. "Tracking you via location on your phone, handcuffing you to the bedpost, and making sure the door and windows are locked," he said. "We'll be back in half an hour, you'll be fine I'm sure," he said. Xion nodded.

Wontak made sure Xion had his phone in his pocket and location on before getting him to sit against the side of the bed, handcuffing both his hands to the bedpost and making sure he couldn't get out of his restraints before stepping back. "Isn't this a bit much?" Asked Dongmyeong. "Nah, a bit much would be knocking him out so that he wouldn't go anywhere," said Wontak. "Or putting him in a straight jacket," he added. "I'll be fine," said Xion. "Get the mission over with," he said.

[center ~]

Doing missions with Wontak again sent a wave of nostalgia through Dongmyeong as they went after their vampire. Wontak decided to let Hwanhee lead since he was the most experienced in hunting vampires between the three of them and Hwanhee decided to let Dongmyeong take the kill, as he and Wontak would provide backup.

Dongmyeong fell into the familiar routine of focusing his mind to make him wide awake as he closed his eyes and took a deep breath. When he opened them again a few minutes later he was ready. "Go," said Hwanhee. "We're right behind you," he added. Dongmyeong nodded and headed off to where their vampire was hiding. Wontak and Hwanhee followed after him.

Dispatching their vampire wasn't hard, even they didn't fight for their life. It was odd, as Dongmyeong expected at least some resistance. "God damn it," swore Hwanhee as he realized the implications of this mission in particular. "That usually means there's a blood den somewhere," he said. "If a vampire's willing to die..." He started. Dongmyeong swore rather loudly and grabbed his phone, going to see where Xion was. "Where is he?" Asked Wontak as he went to look over Dongmyeong's shoulder.

"He's not in the hotel," cursed Dongmyeong as he quickly tracked the phone, running to the location. "I'll go get the car," said Wontak. "Too late, we need to go now," said Hwanhee as he raced after Dongmyeong. Wontak sighed, quickly rushing after them.

"GOD DAMN IT!" Shouted Dongmyeong as he came upon a gruesome scene again. "It happened again?!" He asked. "[i Why]?! We were [i so] god damn careful this time!" He said, throwing his hands up in desperation.

Dongmyeong's shouts brought over Hwanhee and Wontak who cursed at the scene. "We tried, we tried so hard," whimpered Dongmyeong as he fell to his knees, punching the ground with his fists.

Wontak immediately went to survey the damage, looking around for Xion who wasn't in the area. "We need to find him before something else happens," he said, bending down when he found Xion's phone and picking it up. "We can't track him by phone anymore," he said. "I can probably find him," said Dongmyeong as he got to his feet and turned to Wontak. "Tracking's always been your forte, go," said Wontak. Dongmyeong nodded and looked around, spotting bloody footprints. "That way," he said, following after the footprints. Hwanhee and Wontak followed after him.

Kyuhyun came over to survey the damage, sighing as he shook his head. "You're lucky that I own the country," he said. "[i Really] lucky," he added. Hwanhee turned to Kyuhyun. "I'll call a clean up," said Kyuhyun. "You need to get cleaned up, the three of you," he said.

"What's going to happen to Xion?" Asked Dongmyeong. "It depends on what [i my] decision on the matter is," Kyuhyun. "So if you don't want to test my patience I suggest going to get cleaned up," he said. "Let it go," said Hwanhee. "Let's get cleaned up and changed," he said. "There's extra clothes for you in the hall," said Kyuhyun before he went to call for a clean up.

"Come on," Hwanhee said softly, going over and pushing Dongmyeong out of the room. "I'll get Xion," he said. Dongmyeong nodded, leaving the room to go clean himself up.

Hwanhee walked over to Xion, gently shaking him. "Dongju," he said. Xion seemed to come to his senses, blinking as he turned to look at Hwanhee. "Are you okay?" Asked Hwanhee. "I-I... Yeah," mumbled Xion, a soft tone in his voice as he turned his gaze to look around the room. "It happened again didn't it?" He asked. "Unfortunately," huffed Hwanhee as a dry, humorless chuckle escaped him. "Don't worry though, Kyuhyun's taking care of it," he said. "So let's get cleaned up," he said. Xion nodded, and let Hwanhee lead him out of the room to get cleaned up and changed into new clothes.

Kyuhyun met them outside after calling for a cleanup, letting out a deep sigh as he turned to Hwanhee. "You three are staying one more night," he said. "I'm not responsible for any more missions you have in the country, but everyone knows that you did it," he said. "You're on a watch list, so I suggest being careful on your next missions through Europe," he said. Hwanhee nodded. "Thank you," he said. Kyuhyun scratched the back of his head. "No worries," he said. "Let's get home and get some dinner then," he said before heading back home. Hwanhee, Xion and Dongmyeong followed after him.

[center ~]

After eating dinner Hwanhee went into the twins' room to have a talk with them, sitting down at the desk while Xion and Dongmyeong sat on the bed. "Listen," said Hwanhee. "I know we dodged a bullet there, but after we leave Poland that's it," he said. "We need to keep from making another giant mistake like that," he said.

"What do you suggest we do?" Asked Xion. "From here we'll be running into other teams," said Hwanhee. "Germany is a prime spot for hunters, even if we don't hit up Berlin I know a few teams that make Germany their home," he said. "So we can ask them for help," he said.

"By tomorrow people will have heard of what happened, what if they say no to helping?" Asked Dongmyeong. "Trust me," said Hwanhee. "They will help," he said. "When it comes to missions, teams will help one another," he said. "Even if we have to ask werewolf hunters for help," he said. "The Treasure Box faction is pretty known at this point, with the largest amount of members," he said. "I do have friends in the faction still, despite now being in a new faction," he added.

"Are we going into Berlin?" Asked Xion. "It doesn't look like it," said Hwanhee as he looked at the mission details on his phone. "It looks like we'll be hitting all around Berlin, and then moving down to Spain," he said. "That's gonna be quite the journey," remarked Xion. "You going to be awake for that long?" He asked Dongmyeong. "Of course," Dongmyeong said, lightly punching Xion on the arm in annoyance.

"I think it's a good idea to avoid Berlin," said Xion. "I don't even [i want] to know what the others think about this situation," he said. "You are still rookies," said Hwanhee. "Sometimes these things happen," he said.

"Did you do something similar?" Asked Dongmyeong. "I almost did," said Hwanhee as he sighed, putting his phone in his pocket. "But I managed to stop myself," he said. "It's why I prefer to work alone when doing missions," he said. "But you took us in," said Xion. "I wanted to," said Hwanhee. "It was easy to take you two in, with Dongmyeong already having experience as a hunter," he said. "I just had to teach you," he said. "Oh," said Xion.

"Don't take that as a bad thing," said Hwanhee. "I've enjoyed the time we've had together as a team, but at some point we're going to have to go our separate ways," he said. "You two have learned well under me, and that's saying a lot," he said.

"So what's going to happen now?" Asked Xion. "I don't know," said Hwanhee. "We'll leave in the morning, so try and get some sleep alright?" He asked. "I need to have a chat with Kyuhyun before I turn in for the night," he said. Xion and Dongmyeong nodded. Hwanhee got up and left the room, heading downstairs and going out the back door. He sat beside Kyuhyun who was sitting in a chair with his feet propped up on the table with a beer in his hands.

"You're gonna cause me a lot of trouble you know that?" Asked Kyuhyun as he took a gulp of beer. "Oh, I know," said Hwanhee. "And yet you decided to help us, why?" He asked. "They reminded me of my own relationship to my brother," said Kyuhyun. "Nichkhun?" Asked Hwanhee. Kyuhyun nodded. "How so?" Asked Hwanhee.

"We faced scrutiny, for being twins even though we have different mothers," said Kyuhyun. "We look pretty similar, but we have completely different personalities," he said. "They thought we had the same mother, no," he added. "But Nichkhun worked to become a famous vampire hunter, and I came to call an entire country my own territory," he said. Hwanhee hummed in response.

"What I'm saying is, those two will go places," Kyuhyun said after a few minutes. "Their past has shaped them into who they are today, but as what? I see a lot of potential for them," he said. "Xion is a fighter is he not?" He asked. "That's what he said he was trained in," said Hwanhee.

"And Dongmyeong's amazing tracking is something that can be deadly if they are trained correctly," said Kyuhyun. "If they make it out of this, send them to me," he said. "I will train them myself," he said. "If they want to of course," he added. "I'll ask them," hummed Hwanhee.

Missions. They always annoyed the hell out of Hwanhee when they went wrong. This was partly why he was never in a team before taking in the twins, and the scene before him was just total bull.

"Aish," said Hwanhee as he pinched the bridge of his nose, completely unsure of what to do. Dongmyeong was nearly hysterical, hugging an unresponsive, and blood covered, Xion who was staring off into space.

[center ~A few hours earlier~]

"Okay, here's how we do this," said Hwanhee. "There's three blood dens, we are going to go sniff them out and take out any vampires you see," he said and Xion nodded. "Dongmyeong I'm going to need you to be awake for your part, so be careful," he said. "Since there's three blood dens we need to hit all three separately, got it?" He asked. Dongmyeong nodded. "I'll do my best," he said.

"I have a feeling that this won't end very well," said Hwanhee. "But we need to split up and we're the only team in the city right now," he said. "Split up and hit them all at once?" Asked Xion. "That's the best we can do right now, I'd call for backup but our backup left a few days ago," said Hwanhee. "Changhyun," said Xion. Hwanhee nodded.

"No one comes to Poland unless it's for missions," said Dongmyeong. "Kyuhyun has a tight hold on the country, something about losing too many to werewolf hunters or something," he said.

"Last time we did something like this, you came to in front of the aftermath of a massacre, please try and come to before it happens again," said Hwanhee as he turned to Xion. "I didn't do it," mumbled Xion. "We have no proof of that," said Hwanhee. "So you assume that I did it?" Asked Xion.

"No, but god damn it," said Hwanhee as he turned and punched a wall. "We have [i no] protection here," he said. "You do something stupid and Kyuhyun has every right to kill you," he said. "Please understand that I'm trying to avoid that," he said. Xion nodded. "Okay," he said.

"Here's the locations of the two that I'm not hitting, and some walkie talkies," said Hwanhee, giving the both of them a piece of paper and a walkie talkie. "Radio me if something goes wrong," he said. "Ready?" He asked. Dongmyeong and Xion nodded. "Alright, let's go," said Hwanhee. The three of them split up, each going to their assigned blood den.

[center ~]

Hwanhee stood across the street from his building, keeping an eye on who was entering and leaving the place as he paced back and forth. The twins were going to have to be quick about this, as Hwanhee crossed the street. He quickly snuck inside, quickly taking out the guards at the entrance before stripping and changing and quickly going after the other vampires in the building.

"Damn it," said Hwanhee once he was done, changing back and quickly putting on his clothes. "No humans," he said. "They must've moved them," he said, going to thoroughly check every single room.

"Radio check," said Hwanhee as he spoke into the walkie talkie. "[i Everything is fine here, no humans]," said Dongmyeong. Nothing came from Xion yet. "Xion?" Asked Hwanhee. There was only silence on his end.

"Dongmyeong, finish what you're doing, make sure it's completely clear," Hwanhee said after a few minutes of no response from Xion. "Then meet me at the third location, it should be on the paper," he said. "[i On it]," said Dongmyeong.

[center ~]

Taking out the vampires was easy for Dongmyeong. The adrenaline surge was enough to keep him wide awake as he checked each and every room in his building to make sure that it was clear. "Damn it Xion, you better be okay," he grumbled, rushing around to make sure he didn't forget a room. There wasn't any humans here either, so that meant they were moved according to what Xion had said.

Dongmyeong hoped they weren't at the third location as he rushed out the door after declaring it an all clear and going towards the third location.

Hwanhee met Dongmyeong outside the building, and they both turned to each other. "Let's hope we didn't come upon a massacre," said Hwanhee. "Yeah," said Dongmyeong as he and Hwanhee rushed inside to find Xion.

"God damn it," cursed Hwanhee. "There's cameras, if he did it.." He grumbled. "Don't you dare finish that sentence," said Dongmyeong. "I [i know] he didn't do it," he said. "Check to make sure there's no dead humans," said Hwanhee. "Got it," said Dongmyeong as he went to do so. Hwanhee went around, following the pine forest smell to look for Xion.

Dongmyeong was able to find Xion first, finding Xion in the middle of a room that was covered floor to ceiling in blood. Bodies lay scattered across the floor, in various states of mutilation. Dongmyeong brought up the walkie in shaking hands, speaking into it. "I-I found him," he said, his voice trembling. "[i I'm on my way, don't do anything]," said Hwanhee.

"...Xion?" Asked Dongmyeong, walking up to his brother. Xion stared at Dongmyeong, his expression blank and a far off look in his eyes. "Xion?" Dongmyeong repeated, putting his hands on Xion's shoulders and shaking him slightly. "Xion...?" He repeated again, sounding desperate now as he brought his brother into a hug, sobbing into his shoulder.

"Aish," said Hwanhee as he pinched the bridge of his nose, completely unsure of what to do. Dongmyeong was nearly hysterical, hugging an unresponsive, and blood covered, Xion who was staring off into space. "What the hell?" Asked Hwanhee, as he looked around the room.

"I need to report this," grumbled Hwanhee as he shook his head. "N-No! You can't!" Shouted Dongmyeong as he turned to Hwanhee. "You can't... You know what will happen if they find out that he did this!" He said.

"If I don't report this then someone else will," said Hwanhee. "We both knew this would happen," he said. "But we went with it anyway," he said, sighing as he paced back and forth. "Please... Please hyung," begged Dongmyeong as he went to Hwanhee and grabbed a hold of his arm. "Please... Don't do this," he whimpered out.

Dongmyeong was sitting on the couch in the livingroom with his eyes closed, just listening to everything around him. He wasn't fully into his tracking mode, but he mostly kept an ear out for Xion who was sitting outside in the backyard drawing after asking Kyuhyun if it was okay for him to. Hwanhee had gone to scout out their vampires, trying to see what sort of strategy they would end up doing.

"You seem relaxed," said Kyuhyun as he walked into the livingroom. Dongmyeong hummed in response, opening his eyes and turning his head to look at Kyuhyun. "Just resting my eyes," he said. Kyuhyun hummed in response.

"Problem?" Asked Dongmyeong. "No no," said Kyuhyun as he went to sit down beside Dongmyeong. "For someone who has narcolepsy you do rest your eyes a lot," he said. Dongmyeong snorts. "It's something I do, there's nothing wrong with that is there?" He asked.

"Your history as a werewolf hunter says otherwise," said Kyuhyun. "My reputation exceeds me," said Dongmyeong as he shook his head. "That mantra that became well known within the werewolf hunting community? I was the one who came up with it," he said. "I lost so many of my pack members before that mantra became mainstream," said Kyuhyun. "I'm sorry," said Dongmyeong. "I wish I could've pushed harder to put the mantra out there," he said.

"You realize that your past is going to come back for you?" Asked Kyuhyun. "Trust me, I knew that when I left the werewolf hunting association to join my brother and his pack," said Dongmyeong.

"Your brother won't last long in this world as a vampire hunter," said Kyuhyun. "No, he won't," said Dongmyeong. "But I'm going to do everything I can to keep him alive," he said. "It's either me or him," he said. "If it comes down to it, I want him to be the one left alive," he said. "A bold statement, coming from you," said Kyuhyun.

"You seem to have a grudge against me," said Dongmyeong. "No, trust me I don't," said Kyuhyun. "If I did I would've said no to your team staying here," he said. Dongmyeong hummed in response, closing his eyes again. "Are you actually tired or just spacing out this time?" Asked Kyuhyun. "Both," hummed Dongmyeong. "I'll leave you be then," said Kyuhyun as he got up, going to check on Xion.

[center ~]

Xion laid on his stomach on a blanket in the grass, humming to himself as he colored his latest sketch. "Having fun?" Asked Kyuhyun as he walked over. "Mhm," said Xion as he looked up from his sketch. "What's up?" He asked.

"Just to came to check on you," said Kyuhyun. "What are you drawing?" He asked. "I finished the drawing," said Xion as he showed Kyuhyun. "But it's getting colored right now," he said. "Ah, I see," said Kyuhyun as he looked at the drawing. "It's nice," he said. "Thanks, I've been working on this one for a while," he said. "Since we left home," he added. "Ah," said Kyuhyun. Xion went back to coloring, humming to himself.

"Your brother seems very... Different," said Kyuhyun as he sat beside Xion, stretching out as he leaned back on his hands. "I'm not sure what you mean by that," said Xion as he paused for a second before continuing to color. "He seems protective of you," said Kyuhyun. "My brother and I were separated for a long time," said Xion. "But thanks to a few friends we found each other again," he said. Kyuhyun hummed in response.

"What did you think, when you heard that he was a werewolf hunter?" Asked Kyuhyun. Xion blinked. "It was my fault partly," he mumbled. "I don't think you'd understand," he said. "Try me," said Kyuhyun.

"I don't think I can talk about something like what happened," said Xion. "It can't be that bad can it?" Asked Kyuhyun. "He had his reasons for becoming a werewolf hunter," said Xion. "Did it have to do with you two being separated?" Asked Kyuhyun. "Sort of," said Xion. "Apparently he was so pissed that he slaughtered my home pack," he said. "He believed that I was dead, and he... Well," he said, shrugging. "Ah," hummed Kyuhyun. "He had a good reason then," he said. "Yeah," hummed Xion.

"Did he kill members of your pack?" Xion asked suddenly, causing Kyuhyun to blink. "Why do you ask?" Asked Kyuhyun. "I dunno, it seems like you hate him in particular or something," said Xion. "No, he didn't kill members of my pack," said Kyuhyun. "He just reminds me of my own brother at times is all," he said. "Oh," said Xion.

[center ~]

Hwanhee was the next person to be interrogated by Kyuhyun, the two of them sitting on the back porch after dinner, Hwanhee sipping a soda and Kyuhyun having a bottle of beer in his hands.

"What do you think of the two brothers?" Asked Kyuhyun. "They're just brothers," said Hwanhee as he turned his head to look at Kyuhyun. "Dongmyeong is a bit headstrong, but he knows when to listen to me concerning anything mission related," he said. "Xion just follows his brother," he said.

"Xion is the youngest isn't he?" Asked Kyuhyun as he took a gulp of beer. "He is," hummed Hwanhee before he took a gulp of his soda. "Between both our packs," he added. "So your pack is run like Moonbin's then?" Asked Kyuhyun. "In a way, but we outnumber the werewolves," said Hwanhee.

"You ever think that the werewolves would try to do anything?" Asked Kyuhyun. "No," said Hwanhee. "We bring them protection, from the werewolf hunters anyway," he said. "Gunhak knows he can trust us, and the others follow him," he said. "Dongmyeong, though he technically doesn't belong to their pack officially, is there because of Xion," he said. "If Xion left, then I'm sure Dongmyeong would follow," he said as he looked at his bottle before taking a big gulp of soda to finish the bottle.

"Is there anything else you wanted to ask?" He asked. "No, not at this moment," said Kyuhyun. "Just be wary of the twins," he said. "I know," said Hwanhee. "I'm not that stupid," he said, getting up. "We'll be off doing our missions tomorrow, don't worry about us too much," he said. Kyuhyun waved him off and Hwanhee headed inside.

Xion wasn't sure what this trip would entail, but Hwanhee was back into his leader mode and Dongmyeong didn't question it. Xion chalked it up to Dongmyeong having been a werewolf hunter for most of his life after his faked death. Xion was still a child, at least to everyone, but he tried his hardest to prove to everyone that he was more than just a kid.

Dongmyeong was apprehensive at best, wondering how these batches of missions would affect Xion. He was used to this, travelling and killing those he was sent after. He knew that Xion would never fully understand, not to the extent that Hwanhee did. He was sure that Hwanhee had seen it, the slightest change in his brother when they were told they had missions. This would end badly, he was sure of it.

Hwanhee was in full leader mode, keeping an eye on the twins as they prepared for the plane landing in Poland. Something had changed in Xion, and Hwanhee was [i positive] that they would have to use his human name again soon. Going back to Europe meant that they would be crossing into other territories, mostly dominated by werewolves, and that honestly scared Hwanhee. How the twins would react to being in a territory as large as Kyuhyun's was a mystery to Hwanhee. He just hoped they behaved.

[center ~]

There was one person waiting for them at the terminal entrance, and it was Changhyun. "Well, we caught you just as we arrived then," said Hwanhee as he grinned. "Hey," said Changhyun as he smiled slightly, and Hwanhee could see the weariness in his eyes.

"Ready to finally head home I assume?" Asked Hwanhee. "Unfortunately not, I'm going deeper into Europe from here," said Changhyun as the twins walked over after grabbing their bags. "Hey Changhyun!" Said Xion. Dongmyeong nodded, more in sympathy at Changhyun's weariness. Long term missions always took a toll on everyone's mental health, but he was sure that Changhyun would be finished with his missions soon.

"How much longer until you can head home?" Asked Hwanhee. "Just a couple missions," said Changhyun. "Though I'm taking my time with these last few," he said. "I know I should rush to get home but," he said, shrugging. "You're tired, I get it," said Dongmyeong. "Trust me, I couldn't wait to get home after missions like these were done," he said.

"How did you handle it?" Asked Changhyun. "I didn't think about it," said Dongmyeong. "The pack I was with were nomadic anyway, we never stayed in one place for long," he said. "If I had missions they went with me," he said.

"Well, I need to go," said Changhyun. "Good luck with your batches of missions," he said. "Same to you, stay safe," said Hwanhee. Dongmyeong and Xion waved to Changhyun as he entered the terminal.

"Well, let's go see if Kyuhyun is home," said Hwanhee as he turned to the twins. "Who's that?" Asked Xion. "He's the werewolf that controls this territory, he owns all of Poland at the moment last I checked," said Dongmyeong. "Whoa," Xion said with wide eyes. "If Changhyun was here for who knows how long I'm sure he knew we were coming," said Hwanhee. "Let's go then," he said, hailing a cab and telling the driver the address. Once situated everyone got into the cab and they were off, to hopefully be able to stay in Kyuhyun's main pack house.

Kyuhyun was standing on the front steps to his house when they arrived, nodding to Hwanhee. "Hello," he said. "Hello," said Hwanhee as he turned to Kyuhyun after grabbing his bags. Xion and Dongmyeong grabbed their bags and Hwanhee went to pay the driver before turning to Kyuhyun again.

"How long are you around for?" Asked Kyuhyun. "A week at least," said Hwanhee. "If you don't mind of course," he added. "All your missions are in the city?" Asked Kyuhyun. "For the moment yes," said Hwanhee. "Come on in then," said Kyuhyun as he nodded, heading back inside. "Well, that's our cue," said Hwanhee before he headed inside. Xion and Dongmyeong followed after him.

"Your other packmate was here for a month," said Kyuhyun once they arrived in the livingroom. "Ah, really?" Asked Hwanhee. "I respect him for being able to be away from home for this long," said Kyuhyun. "Changhyun has a lot on his shoulders," said Hwanhee. "So I hear," said Kyuhyun.

"Well, you can find food in the kitchen here," said Kyuhyun as he pointed to the doorway to the kitchen. "You'll have to share a bathroom between the three of you but that shouldn't be a problem," he said, turning to Hwanhee who nodded. "No problem there," said Hwanhee.

"As for your sleeping arrangements you'll get two rooms, one for the siblings and one for you," said Kyuhyun. "Upstairs, both doors on the right, the bathroom being just across the hall from it," he said. "You two will need to share a bed though," he said to Xion and Dongmyeong. "That's fine," said Dongmyeong. "I can't sleep so," Xion said, shrugging. "Well, sometimes I can but," he added. "If you need anything I will be in the kitchen making dinner then," said Kyuhyun as he went to do so.

Hwanhee was the first to move, immediately going upstairs to put down his bags. Xion and Dongmyeong followed suit, going to the room next door to unpack and unwind for a bit before dinner. Xion took in their surroundings, looking around the room while Dongmyeong immediately went to lay down.

"Did you bring your sketchbook?" Asked Dongmyeong as he looked up at the ceiling. "I did," said Xion. "Good," said Dongmyeong. "I hate seeing you have nothing to do while awake at night," he said. Xion scratched the back of his head in a sheepish manner as he went to sit down at the desk in the room after grabbing his sketchbook from his bag along with a new set of markers he had gotten as a gift from Xiao. He immediately got back into the drawing mood as he tried to finish a sketch he was working on before missions had come up.

Hwanhee poked his head into the room after unpacking, seeing how the two brothers were. "Comfortable?" He asked, stepping into the room after Dongmyeong waved from his spot on the bed. "Yeah," said Dongmyeong. "It's good enough," said Xion as he stared down at the blank page in front of him.

"Did you finish your other sketch?" Asked Hwanhee as he walked over. "I did!" Said Xion as he immediately flipped the book around to the page of the finished sketch. Hwanhee looked down at it, nodding. "Ah, nice," he said. Xion grinned. "Thank you," he said. "You're getting better at drawing," said Hwanhee. "I want to move onto drawing other stuff, but this one is my best one yet," said Xion.

Kyuhyun knocked on the door to say that dinner was ready and everyone headed downstairs to get food, standing around the kitchen island to eat. "You've settled in it seems," said Kyuhyun. "We try to unpack and settle in as quickly as possible, we don't know how long we're going to be on missions for," Hwanhee said, shrugging. "Makes sense," said Kyuhyun.

"...What brings you here?" Asked Wooseok, his heavy German accent catching Hwanhee off guard. "What? I'm just passing through," said Hwanhee. "What brings a German like you here?" He asked.

"You're trespassing on my territory bud," said Wooseok. "I don't mean to," said Hwanhee. "But my pack isn't going to be happy to see that someone else encroached on their territory," he said. "What pack?" Wooseok asked with a snort. "You smell like a lone lion if you ask me," he said. "Mm," said Hwanhee.

"What's your name?" Asked Wooseok. "Hwanhee," said Hwanhee. "I have a propsition for you then," said Wooseok. "Why don't you join my pack, we are always looking for new members," he said. "Can I get your name first?" Asked Hwanhee. "Wooseok," said Wooseok.

[center ~]

"So that's how you met huh?" Asked Xion as Hwanhee lounged in the loveseat outside with Xion. "Mm," said Hwanhee. "I didn't meet Jinwook until we joined them," he said.

"You two are mates," said Xion. Hwanhee nodded. "How'd that work out for you?" Asked Xion. "Not too well at first," said Hwanhee. "But we worked through it," he said. "Things were rocky at the start, but most won't understand why until they knew of his history," he said. "His mate rejected him?" Asked Xion. Hwanhee nodded.

"Why though?" Asked Xion. "I don't know," said Hwanhee. "He never told me why, but I had to pick up the pieces, and through that we managed to make it work, despite a very rocky start," he said.

[center ~]

"...I don't understand why you continue to stay with me," said Jinwook as he turned to Hwanhee. "You [i know] why," said Hwanhee. "Even with the information that you were told you refuse to leave me?!" Asked Jinwook as he shoved Hwanhee into the wall, his arm keeping in Hwanhee in place.

Hwanhee stared him down, keeping a steady gaze. "I can [i promise] you that I'm a lot better than your other mate," he said. "How can you guarantee it?" Growled Jinwook. "If I wasn't your mate I wouldn't be sitting here trying to reason with you," said Hwanhee. Jinwook stared at him for a few minutes, contemplating.

"Fine," he said after a few minutes, moving away and letting Hwanhee slump slightly in relief. "But I'm keeping an eye on you," he said. "The moment I [i know] things will go for the worse, I will [i not] hesitate to kill you," he growled. Hwanhee held up his hands in surrender. "Fine, fine," he said. "We can work this out," he said. "No problem," he added.

[center ~]

"It's funny how our relationship changed after that day," said Jinwook as he was in his room he shared with Hwanhee having a chat. "It is," hummed Hwanhee as he nodded. "You were afraid of me suddenly leaving," he said. "I think I'd have every right to be though," said Jinwook. "You still have me, no matter what," said Hwanhee as he turned to Jinwook.

"Well, we have kids, sort of," Jinwook said with a snicker. "I can't help that the twins look up to me," Hwanhee said, sighing. "You're doing a good job at leading them though," said Jinwook. "I know," said Hwanhee. "I try my best, and Dongmyeong at least knows to trust me when it comes to anything vampire hunting related," he said. "Xion just follows him," he said.

"I don't regret staying with you over the years though," Hwanhee said suddenly. "I know you pushed me away but I kept coming back," he said. "It's odd," said Jinwook. "But it's nice now, to finally be free of those thoughts," he said. "Mm," said Hwanhee as he nodded.

[center ~]

"...You're going for it huh?" Asked Wooseok as he turned to Hwanhee. "I feel like I'm not doing anything," said Hwanhee as he sighed. "Also, it seems your German accent is still there, sort of," he said. "Oi, I know it's been decades since I landed in the US but you gotta expect it," Wooseok said with a pout, earning a chuckle from Hwanhee.

"On a serious note," said Hwanhee. "Are you sure you're fine with me going?" He asked. Wooseok shrugged. "It's not my call for it," he said. "Besides, you made the choice, I respect that," he said. "You may need to talk to Jinwook first though," he said. "Ah, right," Hwanhee said, sighing. "I do," he said. "Good luck," said Wooseok as he patted Hwanhee on the shoulder before leaving.

"You want to do [i what]?" Asked Jinwook once Hwanhee got to talk to him alone. "I want to become a vampire hunter," said Hwanhee. "Everyone else has their own thing," he said. "I want to be able to do my own thing," he said.

Jinwook sighed. "Okay," he said. "Okay?" Asked Hwanhee. "Go for it," said Jinwook. "As much as you've been good to me over the years, I can't keep you to myself forever," he said. "Just come back alive alright?" He asked. "I swear on it," said Hwanhee as he nodded.

[center ~]

Hwanhee got a text with mission details sent to his phone so he checked them, going over where they needed to go next. "Europe again?" He asked, sighing in exasperation as he read the first vampire's last known location. "Alright," he said, getting up and heading downstairs to find the twins.

"We have missions," he said when he found Dongmyeong and Xion outside. "Where?" Asked Dongmyeong. "Europe, we're starting all the way in Poland," said Hwanhee. "What countries are we hitting?" Asked Xion. "Poland, Germany, Spain and then the UK," said Hwanhee. "Go pack," he said. Xion and Dongmyeong rushed to go get packed and Hwanhee sent a text to the group chat saying that he had missions before going to pack.

[center ~]

"...I hate missions," groaned Hwanhee as he stretched, looking at the flight board to see where his plane was. Running into other teams didn't happen as often as he had initially thought. Most of the time he was alone, going from place to place until he could finally go home.

"And missions hate you," came a voice, causing Hwanhee to turn to said voice. "Hello Changhyun," said Hwanhee. Changhyun smiled slightly, sitting beside Hwanhee.

"You're alone?" Asked Hwanhee. "Yeah," said Changhyun. "Shocking," said Hwanhee. "I'm on a long term mission," said Changhyun. "So I'm probably gonna stop at home for like a week before leaving again," he said.

"How's hunting werewolves going for you?" Asked Hwanhee. "Mm," said Changhyun. "Fine," he said. "I'll be home soon though," he said. "Unfortunately I'm heading out," said Hwanhee. "Tell the others I said hello," he said. "Sure," said Changhyun as the screen changed. "Well, that's me," said Hwanhee as he got up after checking the screen. "I'll see you around," he said. Changhyun waved.

[center ~]

"Maybe you'll run into Changhyun on his way back like before," said Xiao. "Maybe," said Hwanhee as he watched the twins walking ahead of them and towards security. "I'll tell him the others say hello," he said. "No worries, have a safe trip," said Xiao. "Stay safe," he said. "Will do," said Hwanhee.

"...What is your name?" Asked Gunhak as he stood in front of Xion. "D-Dongju," said Xion. "But you can call me Xion," he said. "Aish, this kid," grumbled Seoho. "Back off will you?" Asked Gunhak. "He's with us now," he said. "Fine, fine," said Seoho.

"You're with us now," said Gunhak. "So try and get along with everyone okay?" He asked. Xion nodded.

[center ~]

"Xion!" Called Xiao as he knocked on the door to Xion's room. "Come help me make breakfast," he shouted. "Coming!" Xion called back as he got up, going to wake his twin and trusting that Kogyeol would come join them for breakfast soon enough.

"Did you get any sleep last night?" Asked Xiao as Xion entered the kitchen. "No," said Xion. "But that's fine," he said. "I got to put my creative mind to work and drew," he said. "You draw?" Asked Xiao. "I'm not good, but yeah," said Xion as he scratched the back of his head. "Cool," said Xiao.

"What do you need me to do?" Asked Xion. "Cut the vegetables here, and wash them," said Xiao as he pointed. Xion nodded and went to do so.

"What's for breakfast?" Asked Gunhak as he walked into the kitchen. "The usual," said Xiao. "Of course," said Gunhak as he walked over to the coffee maker to get his coffee. "What are we doing today?" Asked Xion. "Much needed grocery shopping, it's our turn," said Gunhak. "Oh, fun," said Xion. "I'll write down what we need," said Xiao. "Thanks," said Xion as he nodded.

[center ~]

"...Xion, this is Hwanwoong, he'll be rooming with you for the time being," said Gunhak as he introduced the two. "Maybe you two can work something out," he said. Xion nodded. "Hello," he said. "Hi," said Hwanwoong as he smiled some. "Get along well now, we've got stuff to do," said Gunhak. Xion nodded.

"So what do we do in this pack?" Asked Hwanwoong as he ran errands with Xion. "Well, I'm one of the betas, but we help find blood dens," said Xion. "What, like the ones vampires use?" Asked Hwanwoong. Xion nodded. "We've been hired by someone who has some contacts within the association and if we're needed we're usually sent to find them," he said. "Or if someone reports then then we go see if there's anymore in the area," he said. "Ah, I see," said Hwanwoong.

"We'll run into a lot of teams then?" He asked. "Yeah, but only if they [i really] need us," said Xion. "I see," said Hwanwoong. "Who's out right now?" He asked. "Keonhee and Seoho, they went to Europe for whatever reason," said Xion. "They weren't after a blood den but our employer needed us for something," he said. "Ah," said Hwanwoong.

The phone rang and Xion picked it up. "What's up?" He asked. "[i Come back home, we're needed in Europe to check on a marked human]," said Youngjo. "Alright, we'll be there in a bit," said Xion before he hung up. "Let's go then," he said, turning to Hwanwoong. Hwanwoong nodded.

[center ~]

"Hwanwoong!" Shouted Xion as he tackled said person when Hwanwoong stepped into the kitchen. "Oof," said Hwanwoong as he was nearly knocked over, quickly steadying himself. "Hey, I see I was missed by my roommate," he said, laughing as he tousled Xion's hair, causing Xion to whine as he moved back.

"You're just in time for dinner," said Xiao as he stood at the stove. "Where's the others?" He asked. "Unpacking and things, I see we got another roommate," said Hwanwoong. "I don't trust him to be in the guest room alone," Xiao said, shaking his head. "Makes sense," said Hwanwoong. "He gets my bed anyway," said Xion. "I haven't been able to sleep very much the passed few weeks," he said, sighing as he turned back to the counter.

"He'll move into Kuhn's room, now that Kuhn is back anyway," said Xiao. "They were roommates before weren't they?" Asked Xion. "Yeah," said Xiao.

[center ~]

"...Still unable to sleep?" Asked Xiao as he stepped out onto the back deck to spy Xion in his usual spot, leaning against the railing. "I got a little bit of sleep earlier," mumbled Xion as he looked out towards the forest behind their property. "I just came out to watch the sunrise," he said.

"Everyone thinks we hate each other apparently," said Xiao as he joined Xion, leaning against the railing beside him. "I know," said Xion. "But we're just friends," he said. Xiao nodded. "Yeah... Just friends," he hummed.

[center ~]

"You two are mates aren't you?" Asked Dongmyeong as he and Xion sat beside Xiao on the couch while Xiao watched a movie. "What makes you think that?" Asked Xiao. "It just seems like it," said Dongmyeong. "Wouldn't it be obvious though?" Asked Xion. "I guess there's that," hummed Dongmyeong.

"So what's the final verdict on Kogyeol?" Asked Xion. "He's staying," said Xiao. "It seems that Kuhn was able to convince everyone after all," hummed Dongmyeong. "You were listening again weren't you?" Asked Xion.

"No no," said Dongmyeong. "I think I'm the first to notice that the two were mates," he said. "Ah... It's like Hwanhee and Jinwook all over again," Xiao said, sighing. "They kept their relationship a secret for years, though it was more because Jinwook was rather... Hesitant to try for another relationship after what happened," he said.

"I've noticed it too," said Xion. "Though it's not that obvious, the signs were there," he said. "I think that's why Kogyeol came back," he said. "Who knows what will happen next," he said, shrugging.

[center ~]

"...You really want to become a vampire hunter?" Asked Hwanhee as he blinked, turning to Xion. "I want to keep an eye on Dongmyeong," said Xion. "I don't want him to suddenly disappear again," he said. Hwanhee sighed. "Okay," he said. "I'm not going to try and convince you otherwise, but you need some training," he said.

"How long have you been at this?" Asked Xion. "A few years at least," said Hwanhee. "I was put through the initiation phase by Moonbin himself," he said. "With me being a 'shifter and all, they figured that Moonbin would be fine," he said.

"Have you ever made a mistake?" Asked Xion. "One, but I shouldn't talk about something like that yet," hummed Hwanhee. "Maybe I'll tell you one day," he said. "After I get initiated?" Asked Xion. "Sure, why not," said Hwanhee as he nodded. Xion nodded.

"I warn you, I'm a tough teacher," said Hwanhee. "Don't expect me to go easy on you, vampires won't go easy on you," he said. "I expect as much," said Xion as he nodded.

"I'll have to tell Gunhak of your decision, but I'm sure he won't mind," said Hwanhee. "It's your brother I'm more worried about," he added. "You think he'll try to convince me not to?" Asked Xion. "No, your brother was a werewolf hunter," said Hwanhee. "And transitioning to becoming a vampire hunter is going to be rather difficult since he's not in a known faction," he said. Xion hummed in response.

[center ~]

"No sleep again huh?" Asked Hwanhee as he stepped out onto the back deck to see Xion leaning against the railing. "No," hummed Xion as he turned to Hwanhee before turning back to looking at the forest. Hwanhee went to stand beside him after closing the back door, leaning against the railing.

"It's odd," Xion said suddenly. "I thought I'd have a hard time becoming a vampire hunter, but it seems it runs in the family," he said. "It is rather odd," said Hwanhee. "But at least it'll keep you from getting killed, you know what do do," he said. "That's true I guess," agreed Xion.

"....And yet here we are," said Dongmyeong as he stood in front of his packmates. "You [i knew] that this would happen, but you're still surprised?" He asked. "So you're just gonna leave us? For what, a chance to find out if your brother is actually dead or not?" Asked Harin.

"You know I wouldn't have a reason to leave unless I have substantial proof," said Dongmyeong. "What kind of proof do you have? Just witnesses?!" Shouted Harin as he grabbed Dongmyeong by the shirt and slammed him against the wall. "You would rather leave us, your own pack that took you in after everything just to go to a pack [i you] don't know?!" He snarled.

"To be honest here," said Byungchan as he walked over, shoving Harin away from Dongmyeong. "You yourself are quite in a bind aren't you?" He asked, standing in front of Dongmyeong after he slid to the floor. "You wouldn't be fighting so hard to get him to stay if you weren't in trouble hm?" He asked.

"What do you know?" Spat Harin. "Enough to know that as soon as he leaves werewolf hunters will be coming after you," said Byungchan. "I may just be a nobody to you, but you don't know who I know," he said. "Now, back off and let him go," he said. "You're not gonna get anywhere with that attitude, no wonder werewolf hunters were sent to kill you," he said. Harin clenched his hands into fists at his side, but moved back, letting Dongmyeong go. "Good choice," said Byungchan.

[center ~]

"Dongmyeong?" Came Xion's voice, and Dongmyeong blinked, coming back to the world as he turned to Xion. "Hm?" Asked Dongmyeong. "You were spacing out again," said Xion. "I asked if you wanted to go running," he said. "Oh, yeah, sure," said Dongmyeong. Xion grinned. "Let's go!" He said, calling for Gunhak and Xiao who would be running with them. Dongmyeong shook his head in amusement and went outside with the others.

[center ~]

"...You'll come back right?" Asked Giwook. "I don't know," said Dongmyeong. "But we'll see," he said. "At least tell us when you find your brother, I wouldn't mind meeting him," said Giwook. Dongmyeong chuckled some. "Sure," he said.

"We'll be here if you need us," said Yonghoon. "I know," said Dongmyeong as he turned to Yonghoon. "Take care of Kanghyun will you? I'd hate to have the same mistake happen to you both," he said. "No one is gonna get between me and my little brother, I promise you," said Yonghoon. Dongmyeong nodded. "Good luck then," he said.

Byungchan walked over with a backpack slung over his shoulders with his hands in his pockets. "Ready?" He asked. "Yeah," said Dongmyeong as he nodded. "I got everything," he said. "Alright, we got a train to catch," said Byungchan as a train horn sounded.

[center ~]

Dongmyeong lounged in his usual spot outside, lying wide awake as he listened to the silence of the night around him. He was alone at least, he wasn't sure if he could handle talking to any of the others right now. It was just after midnight anyway, so he was expecting at least [i one] person to join him but for now he sat spacing out, humming to himself as he fidgeted with his fingers in thought.

"Just you tonight?" Came a voice, causing Dongmyeong to turn to said voice, spotting Jinwook standing beside him. "Yeah, for now," said Dongmyeong. "What time is it?" He asked. "Just after two," said Jinwook as he handed Dongmyeong a bottle of water before sitting down in one of the other chairs. "I see," hummed Dongmyeong as he nodded.

"Do you mind my company?" Asked Jinwook. "Go ahead and sit," said Dongmyeong. "I just couldn't sleep," he said. "Wide awake huh?" Asked Jinwook. "Yep," said Dongmyeong. "I did see Xion turn in for the night," hummed Jinwook. Dongmyeong nodded, taking a sip of water before putting the bottle on the table.

[center ~]

"...It's odd," said Wooseok as he sat in his recliner outside. "I had my suspicions of you being his brother," he said. "We have met before haven't we?" Asked Dongmyeong as he was lying down in his usual spot. "I was merely passing through, but you let me stay the night since it was a thunderstorm," he said. Wooseok nodded. "It was right after we moved in, and everyone was out," he said.

"Why didn't you say something before?" Asked Dongmyeong. "I wasn't going to act on instinct like that," said Wooseok as he shrugged, crossing his arms over his chest. "You would've been right though," said Dongmyeong. "We were still in the works of merging packs, that sort of thing wouldn't've gone well," said Wooseok. "I guess," said Dongmyeong.

"Are you gonna take that offer?" Asked Dongmyeong. "I will," said Wooseok. "Though, I will have to see for myself what their leader is like," he added. "Seungwoo won't go along with this until I say I'm in anyway," he said.

"Why what's up?" He asked. "Ah, nothing," said Dongmyeong. "Your pack seems fine with you leading, why are you stepping down?" He asked. "You'll see why when an argument starts up," said Wooseok. "They used to get really bad," he said. "Mm," said Dongmyeong.

"You said you were a tracker?" Asked Wooseok. "I still am, but yes," said Dongmyeong as he shrugged. "What's up?" He asked. "What do you think of Kogyeol?" Asked Wooseok. Dongmyeong blinked. "Why do you want to know what I think of him?" He asked. "I'm just curious," said Wooseok.

"I think there's more to his beta status than you realize," said Dongmyeong. "He's loyal, [i very] loyal to you," he said. "If you decided to leave he wouldn't have a reason to still be here," he added. "Hm, interesting," said Wooseok. "I don't think he minds my brother's pack's presence, but I dunno," Dongmyeong said, shrugging.

"He doesn't [i want] to argue with everyone, but sometimes personalities clash," he said. "I see," hummed Wooseok.

[center ~]

"What, you want to rejoin the pack?!" Asked Xiao as Kogyeol stood on the front porch. "There's no ulterior motive I swear," said Kogyeol as he rubbed the back of his neck in nervousness. "You come by on a day where not all of the pack is here too, god damn you and your timing," said Xiao as he sighed.

"I dunno," said Dongmyeong as he and Sunyoul stood behind him. "You could do what this one pack did," he added. "Have him on trial or something, have people keep an eye on him," he said. "Either way, it's your call, this doesn't involve the werewolves," said Sunyoul.

Xiao sighed again, coming to a conclusion. "I don't know," he said. "But sure, we'll have you on trial," he said. "The others won't be back for a while, they've been sent out on a pretty long mission," he said. "But," he added. "You're rooming with the twins," he said. "Fine with me," said Kogyeol.

[center ~]

"...You don't judge me like the others, why?" Asked Kogyeol as he turned to Dongmyeong as they stood at the shore of the pond. "I dunno," said Dongmyeong. "I don't judge people for what they did in the past," he said. "I've always done that, more due to my own past," he said. "Was your past that bad?" Asked Kogyeol. "In a way," said Dongmyeong. "But I've moved on from it," he said.

"There's no point in dwelling on someone's past," hummed Kogyeol. "Look passed it and move on," agreed Dongmyeong.

[center ~]

"You haven't changed a bit you know," said Kogyeol as he took a walk with Dongmyeong and Xion. "Of course not," said Dongmyeong as he shrugged. "I didn't think you were that bad," said Xion. "Everyone just hated the arguments you liked getting into," he said.

"I didn't [i like] getting into the arguments, it's basically Hwanwoong and Sunyoul all over again," said Kogyeol. "Those two worked things out though," said Xion. "I tried to," said Kogyeol. "Things happen," said Dongmyeong. "You're stuck with us now, make the most of it at least," he said. "I guess," said Kogyeol.

"What did Wooseok say to Jinhyuk anyway?" Asked Xion as he turned to Dongmyeong. "It's nothing I should disclose," said Dongmyeong as he looked up at the ceiling of the gazebo. They had gotten home a couple days ago, and though everyone was happy to see them back the twins had mostly kept to themselves.

"I know you were listening in on their conversation though," said Xion as he blinked. "And I'd like to give them that sense of privacy," said Dongmyeong. "I don't think it's wise to talk about what they said," he said. "It didn't end as badly as you think though," he added. "It's just something they'd work out on their own I'd suppose," he said. "I see," said Xion.

[center ~]

"Did you two not sleep in your room last night?" Asked Sunyoul as he stepped outside and spotted Xion and Dongmyeong in their usual spot. "No," said Xion as he shrugged. "We were comfortable don't worry," said Dongmyeong as he opened his eyes, sitting up and turning to look at Sunyoul.

"You two've been keeping to yourselves," remarked Sunyoul. "I know, it's because you're brothers but at least try and interact with the others?" He asked. "I'm used to being alone," said Dongmyeong as he sighed. "That and I'm not used to being in a pack," he said. "I'll try though," he added. "That's all we ask for," said Sunyoul.

"Xiao need help with breakfast?" Asked Xion. Sunyoul nodded. "It's why I came out to find you," said Sunyoul. "Alright," said Xion as he got up and headed inside.

"How are you doing, really?" Asked Sunyoul as he turned to Dongmyeong. "I'm fine," said Dongmyeong as he got up. "I'm a bit off put by being in a pack again, but I'll get used to it," he said. "Too used to being alone?" Asked Sunyoul. "Just a bit," said Dongmyeong. "There's something about my past that has me rather... Hesitant with being in a pack though," he said. "Maybe I'll talk about it soon, who knows," he said, walking passed Sunyoul and heading back inside.

"How was the trip?" Asked Gunhak as Dongmyeong sat beside him. "It went fine," said Dongmyeong. "No mishaps this time, thank goodness," said Hwanhee as he entered the kitchen to grab his cup of coffee. "That's good," said Xiao as he focused on cooking while Xion helped out.

"Any visits while we were gone?" Asked Hwanhee. "Just Mashiho stopping by to say that Xion was cleared of the murder charges," said Xiao. "They sent Kuhn and Gyujin to make sure that it really was a blood den," he added. "So they came back with Mashiho to report that it was indeed a blood den," he said.

"It's funny, you guys might get sent out again," said Hwanhee. "Or the other werewolves," he added. "We found a blood den in Yohan's territory," he said. "Xion says they were moved, and I had to report that," he said. "Damn, we never get breaks do we?" Asked Gunhak. "Hwanwoong was sent out with Youngjo, Gyujin and Kuhn just last week," he added. "Did he say where?" Asked Xion. "Austria," said Gunhak. "Ironic huh? No wonder Wooseok needed to head to Berlin with us," Dongmyeong said with a chuckle.

"How is Wooseok doing?" Asked Sunyoul. "Fine," said Hwanhee as he nodded. "He seems to finally confessed his not-so-secret crush on his best friend," he said. "Took him long enough," Jinwook said with a snort. "How'd that go?" He asked. "Not so well, at least I assume so," said Hwanhee. "Everyone didn't listen in on the conversation," he added.

"At least, not everyone," said Dongmyeong. "But I'm not going to disclose what they said to each other," he added. "I can safely say that they're working things out though," he said. "The only reason it seemed as bad as it was was because of both their expressions," he said.

"Could you really hear their conversation though?" Asked Xion as he and Xiao put breakfast on the table for everyone. "I'm a tracker, I'm [i supposed] to look out for these kinds of things, my hearing is actually really sharp if I concentrate enough," said Dongmyeong. "Explains why you were only pretending to sleep," said Hwanhee. "I'm surprised you weren't called out on it when we were there," he hummed. "I can put up a good front, sue me," said Dongmyeong as Xion came over with their plates and sat down. Everyone started eating, sitting in silence for most of it.

"You two gonna sleep in your own room tonight?" Asked Sunyoul as he turned to the twins. "Maybe," said Dongmyeong. "If I can will my body to sleep, sure," said Xion. "It would also mean that I'm stuck awake," Dongmyeong said with a sigh. "Hey, at least you can be wide awake for once," said Xion. "Mm," said Dongmyeong. "Outside of missions anyway," he added.

"Have you been outside every night ever since you two got back?" Asked Hwanhee as he blinked in surprise. "We were in our room the first few nights," said Xion. "But yesterday we couldn't really sleep so late night talks," he said. "Well, more like Xion kept tossing and turning and I was tired but my body didn't want to sleep," said Dongmyeong. "Our body clocks are still adjusting, I understand how that is," said Hwanhee.

After breakfast Dongmyeong decided to take a walk, going in a random direction north of the property and into the forest. He took his phone with him in case he was needed, but he was sure they didn't need him unless it was [i really] important. Back when he had been with another pack he was always doing this, just roaming the forests outside their property. He felt wide awake for once, and figured that Xion's body finally gave in and let him sleep.

"It's strange," he hummed to himself as he came upon a pond. "Being in a new pack as trusting as this," he mused, picking up a rock and skipping it across the water. "I'm still used to being a werewolf hunter it seems," he hummed as he put his hands in his pockets.

"Maybe it's due to the fact that I can't do anything even if I wanted, this is my brother's pack after all, I don't want to take that away from him," he mused, tilting his head to the side as he watched the reflections of the occasional cloud go over the water.

His musings were interrupted by footsteps and Dongmyeong turned to them, spotting a lone fox come to the pond for a drink. "I really need to stop being so tense," he breathed out as he looked up at the sky. It was just a normal fox, and Gyujin was over in Europe. No known shapeshifting foxes came to their territory anyway, they were mostly in Europe or up north.

His attention was diverted to the fox again as he watched it leave, though it did stop to look at him before returning to where ever it came from. "Bye little guy," he said, chuckling softly before turning back to the pond and picking up a rock, skipping it across the water.

"Ah, time is short," said Dongmyeong as stood at the train station waiting on the train to take them back to Berlin to turn in their bounties. "It is," hummed Xion as he stood beside his brother. Hwanhee was standing off to the side, having a quiet conversation with Wooseok who would be accompanying them back to Berlin. Something about seeing Eunwoo and Jinhyuk again was what Wooseok had explained.

[center ~]

"If I didn't know any better I'd think that you and Jinhyuk were mates," said Dongmyeong as he turned to look at Wooseok. Wooseok snorts. "It's more complicated than that," he said. "How so?" Asked Dongmyeong.

"I don't think I ever told you about my past did I?" Asked Wooseok. "No," said Dongmyeong. "Well, you know that Jinhyuk and I grew up together," said Wooseok. Dongmyeong nodded. "We aren't mates," said Wooseok. "But how do you tell your best friend that you've got feelings for him?" He asked. "That is a good question," hummed Dongmyeong.

"I think that if we were just humans then there'd be a unrequited love situation here," said Wooseok as he sighed. "But I know for a fact that we aren't mates, my instincts don't want me to be with him," he said. "And yet you have feelings for him," said Dongmyeong. Wooseok nodded.

"I think you should tell him," said Dongmyeong. "Get it off your chest," he said. "And if he doesn't return the feelings?" Asked Wooseok. "Then that's fine," said Dongmyeong. "You're not his mate," he said. "Maybe you'll find your mate while there, who knows," he said. "Yeah... I guess," said Wooseok.

[center ~]

The trip to Berlin was fine, Dongmyeong got to be awake and let Xion sleep, since this would probably be the last mission for a while. Wooseok was silent the entire time, and Hwanhee knew why. He didn't question Wooseok though, figuring that he would be able to handle this on his own.

When they arrived Jinhyuk was there to greet them and there was a slight hesitation between him and Wooseok. "Long time no see," said Jinhyuk as he grinned. "Yeah, I know right," Wooseok said, chuckling awkwardly.

"Where are you three headed?" Asked Jinhyuk as he turned to Hwanhee. "To the bank then over to the coffee shop," said Hwanhee as he rubbed the back of his neck. "From there we'll head on home," he said.

"What, no staying around?" Asked Jinhyuk. "I think these two are ready to head home," said Hwanhee as he motioned to Xion and Dongmyeong. "Homesick?" Asked Jinhyuk. "A bit," said Xion as he scratched the back of his head. "But we were enjoying a rather nice vacation before being called out," he said. "Ah, I see," said Jinhyuk. "Well, let's go to the bank then," he said.

After turning in their missions Hwanhee booked a first class flight back to JFK airport then an economy ticket down to Roanoke, deciding to make it a night time flight to try and reset their body clocks. They decided to stay at Moonbin's coffee shop for a few hours, letting Dongmyeong get some sleep.

The awkwardness between Wooseok and Jinhyuk was [i so] noticeable by the others working that day that Eunwoo decided to take over the counter and let Wooseok have a much needed talk with Jinhyuk. "Even [i we] can see what's going on, have a talk, I can man things for a bit," explained Eunwoo. "Fine fine," said Jinhyuk as he sighed, walking over to where Wooseok was and sitting in front of him.

Whatever talk was going to happen was going to be too quiet for everyone to hear it seemed, but Xion chalked it up to everyone wanting to give the two privacy, as he too had noticed the not so hidden crush that Wooseok had on his best friend.

Hwanhee was being a concerned friend, as he kept an eye on Wooseok and Jinhyuk. "This could either end very badly or be good for the two," mumbled Xion. "It depends on how Jinhyuk takes it," said Hwanhee. "I hope it goes well though," he added.

After a bit they noticed that it had gotten quiet at Wooseok's table, with Jinhyuk looking stoic and Wooseok refusing to look at him. "That doesn't look good," said Hwanhee as he blinked. "No, it doesn't," said Dongmyeong as he opened his eyes, shaking his head to clear what drowsiness he could away from his mind.

Before they could ponder it further the door chimed, and in walked a new face, going straight to Dongmyeong. "You are hard as hell to track down when you don't want to be found you know that?" Growled the new person as he dragged Dongmyeong to his feet by his shirt. "Oi," said Xion as he got up, about to walk over before Dongmyeong stopped him.

"Let me go Harin," said Dongmyeong as he stared Harin down, his alpha aura releasing on instinct. Wooseok and Jinhyuk walked over, keeping their distance when Dongmyeong held up a hand. "We're in a public place," said Dongmyeong. "Do you think you can get away with doing this?" He asked.

Harin let go of Dongmyeong's shirt, shoving him back onto the chair. "You damn traitor," he spat. "The hell did I do?" Asked Dongmyeong. "All I did was leave the team," he said.

"Old friend of yours?" Asked Hwanhee as he moved to stand between Dongmyeong and Harin. "My old pack leader, before I left," said Dongmyeong. "Betrayed us more like," growled Harin. "Left us to the hunters," he spat.

"You made it out didn't you?" Asked Dongmyeong. "You god damn left us to die," snarled Harin as he stepped forward, being pushed back by Hwanhee. "I suggest you leave," said Hwanhee. "This isn't the place for that," he said. "Make me," said Harin.

It was then that Jinhyuk moved, shoving Harin off to the side and pushing him into a table, keeping his arms behind his back. "He said to leave him be," he growled. "Now, get the hell out before we call Sanggyun in here," he spat as he dragged Harin out the door.

"We should go," said Hwanhee as he schooled his expression to be blank. Dongmyeong nodded, his shoulders slumping. "We should," he said. "Sorry for the trouble," he said, turning to Eunwoo. "No worries," said Eunwoo. "Have a safe trip home," he said. "Yeah yeah," said Dongmyeong.

Because the three of them would take this mission, Dongmyeong decided to let his wolf do the killings, letting Xion be awake for his part of the mission with Hwanhee. "Good luck," said Xion. "Yeah, you too," said Dongmyeong as he nodded.

"Hyung," called Dongmyeong as he turned to Hwanhee. "I need to talk to you," he said. "Alone," he added as Hwanhee walked over. Hwanhee inclined his head towards the forest and Dongmyeong walked into the forest with Hwanhee, turning to him once they were far enough away.

"What is it?" Asked Hwanhee. "I don't know how this mission will go but I want you to try something," said Dongmyeong. "If it seems like Xion is completely out of it, try calling for him using his human name," he said. "It's a hunch that I have but it might work," he said. "What's his human name?" Asked Hwanhee. "It's Dongju," said Dongmyeong. Hwanhee nodded. "I'll keep that in mind," he said. "I'll see you after the mission then," said Dongmyeong. "Stay safe," said Hwanhee. "Will do," said Dongmyeong as he went to change and head off to where the vampires were.

[center ~]

Hwanhee and Xion stopped in front of the building Wooseok had suspected to be a blood den, standing just across the street from it. "You ready for this?" Asked Hwanhee. Xion nodded. "Was born ready," he said. "Let's go clear out a blood den then," said Hwanhee as he nodded. They ran into the building, quickly checking everything and clearing out any vampires that were in the building.

Xion was in one of those moods as he finished checking the area out, looking around and seeing if there was any vampires still around. They had gotten to five, and Dongmyeong would probably end up getting the rest, Hwanhee assumed. "Xion?" Asked Hwanhee as he turned to Xion. "What?" Asked Xion. "Everything alright?" Asked Hwanhee. Xion nodded. "Everything's fine," he said.

"Are you sure?" Asked Hwanhee. Xion nodded. "Okay... Dongju," said Hwanhee. Xion blinked, his shoulders slumping. "Oh," he mumbled, his voice softer than usual. "Dongmyeong figured it out huh?" He asked, looking down. Hwanhee nodded. "I didn't think it'd come down to that so quickly," mumbled Xion. "I think we found a way to let you sleep," said Hwanhee, causing Xion to snort. "I guess," said Xion.

"We cleared this out, so let's see if Dongmyeong finished his missions," said Hwanhee. Xion nodded and went to grab the items from the vampires, putting them in a bag they reserved specifically for missions after taking a picture of them and emailing the pictures.

[center ~]

Dongmyeong wasn't one to do his missions in wolf form, but he found it relatively easy to do since the vampires were caught off guard. It was due to experience as a werewolf hunter did he rarely hunt in his wolf form.

Dongmyeong huffed as he finished his side of the missions, looking around to make sure he did get all of them. He counted five, so he was sure that his brother and Hwanhee had gotten the other five.

Footsteps alerted Dongmyeong to visitors and he turned to them, spotting his brother and Hwanhee walking over. "Done?" Asked Hwanhee. Dongmyeong nodded and went to change and put on his clothes, coming back a few minutes later.

"How did the blood den search go?" Asked Dongmyeong. "No humans, but we took out five vampires," said Hwanhee. "I took out five here," hummed Dongmyeong. "Was there any signs of a blood den?" He asked. "No," said Hwanhee. "Might've moved them, I dunno," he said.

"They did," said Xion. "All evidence I found made it seem like they were moved anyway," he added. "Ah, I forgot you were trained to look for these things," said Hwanhee as he scratched the back of his head. Xion chuckled some.

"So they were moved?" Asked Dongmyeong. "Nothing we can do about that," said Xion. "We were only here to help out Yohan and his pack," he said. "Xion's right," said Hwanhee. "We can't go after them but I know someone else will as soon as they get noticed," he said. "I feel bad for all those people," said Dongmyeong as he sighed. "I know, but if we go in blind we won't know how many people there are," said Hwanhee.

"Well, let's go," said Xion. "Let's get some sleep at least," he said, turning to Dongmyeong. Dongmyeong nodded, turning to Hwanhee in question. "Yeah, I think some sleep would do us good," said Hwanhee as he started heading back to Yohan's pack house. Xion and Dongmyeong followed after him.

[center ~]

Dongmyeong stood before his home pack's alpha, wondering why he was called here. "Dongju has been killed, I'm sorry," said the pack leader. "What?" Asked Dongmyeong. "Why the [i hell]?" He asked, a growl forcing its way through him. "We believe you will be the stronger twin," said the alpha. "As if," spat Dongmyeong. "I [i refuse] to bow to your damn rules," he snarled as he triggered the change, snarling in rage before beginning the slaughtering of his home pack.

When he was done Dongmyeong let out a grief stricken howl, lifting his snout to the sky as he did so. Footsteps alerted him to visitors, causing Dongmyeong to turn to them, spotting who would become his mentor, Yedam.

"Well, that saves us the trouble," said Yedam as he surveyed the carnage. "However," he said, turning his attention to Dongmyeong. "What to do with you hm?" He asked, his head tilting to the side in thought. "How bout this, become part of my pack, and no werewolf hunter will come after you," he said. Dongmyeong inclined his head in answer. "Good choice," said Yedam.

[center ~]

Dongmyeong woke with a gasp, sitting up and immediately looking for Xion. When he found Xion actually asleep Dongmyeong sighed, in relief and in exasperation. Looks like it would be his turn to be wide awake for a few hours, as Dongmyeong got up and left the room, deciding to go sit on the front porch.

Wooseok joined him a few minutes later, slumping down on the porch swing and causing it to lightly hit the wall behind them. "Couldn't sleep?" He asked. "I woke up actually," said Dongmyeong as he shrugged, sighing. "What about you?" He asked. "Couldn't sleep," said Wooseok. "But that's alright," he said.

"I'm guessing Xion got to sleep since you're awake," said Wooseok. "Yep," said Dongmyeong as he scratched the back of his head. "Figured," said Wooseok.

When they arrived at Yohan's pack house Yohan was standing outside with Wooseok and Hangyul, his alpha stance apparent as he stood with his head held high and his arms crossed. That sort of cockiness caused Hwanhee to straighten up on instinct, eyeing Yohan with narrowed eyes.

"Welcome back Seungwoo," said Yohan. "And hello you three," he added. "Hello," said Hwanhee as he schooled his expression to be blank. "Aish," said Wooseok. "Cut it out with the cockiness will you?" He asked, sighing as he hit Yohan over the back of his head. "Ow!" Whined Yohan as he rubbed the back of his head, the atmosphere changing immediately. "They're here to [i help] for god's sake," grumbled Wooseok as he shook his head. Hwanhee chuckled some, relaxing.

"Good to see nothing much has changed," Xion said with a teasing grin. "Oi, if it wasn't for my role as advisor I'd've left ages ago," Wooseok said, shaking his head. "And leave me alone with these idiots? At least take me with you," Seungwoo said, laughing some. "You're on your own there buddy," Wooseok said, laughing as he walked over to Xion. "Good to see you again," he said, hugging Xion. "Same to you," said Xion as he hugged Wooseok back before stepping away.

"Ah, Xiao was right, you did re-dye your hair," said Wooseok as he looked Xion over. Xion snorts. "I lost a bet," he said. "My wolf form's fur remains the same though," he said. "Things going well for you two?" Asked Wooseok as he looked concerned. "Been fine," said Xion as he nodded. "All this traveling let me catch up on a lot of sleep," he said, scratching the back of his head. "I never thought I'd be able to be awake this long," Dongmyeong said with a snort, yawning as he covered his mouth with his hand.

"Good, we're having a late night talk session later," said Wooseok as he turned and walked over to the front porch. "We have a lot to catch up on," he called before heading inside. Yohan sighed. "Well, let's go discuss things hm?" He asked. Hwanhee nodded, motioning for the twins to go ahead. Xion and Dongmyeong headed inside with Hangyul following after them to show them the room they'd be staying in. Hwanhee and Seungwoo walked over to the front porch, following Yohan inside to sit in the livingroom to discuss things.

"So what's the problem?" Asked Hwanhee as he sat down, leaning forward and putting his elbows on his knees in a thinking pose. "We've been having problems with a rather large coven of vampires," said Yohan. "But we would leave them alone, they're not a problem for us in general," he added. "The thing is, is that they started getting noticed," he said. "Wooseok has reason to believe that there is a blood den somewhere," he said.

"Is there evidence of one?" Asked Xion as he walked over and sat down beside Hwanhee. "According to Seungyoun and Hyeongjun there's been talk of people going missing in town," said Yohan. "And an abandoned building was bought recently," he added. "So there's reason to suspect a blood den," he said.

"We could take care of the blood den and have Dongmyeong take care of the vampires?" Asked Xion as he turned to Hwanhee. "Hm... It's possible," hummed Hwanhee. "I think we can do that," he said, nodding. "Do you think one person can take care of 10 vampires?" Asked Yohan, earning a snort from Xion. "He singlehandedly took out a pack of 20 werewolves before," said Xion. "He's killed vampires before," said Hwanhee. "He's pretty good at his job," he added.

"We'll go tomorrow," said Xion. "Let Dongmyeong sleep," he said. "That's fine, he's tired," said Hwanhee as he nodded. "Leave us to do the job," he said, turning to Yohan. "We'll be in and out in an hour," he added. Yohan looked skeptical but a look from Seungwoo prevented him from saying anything more as he nodded. "Alright," he said after a few minutes.

[center ~]

Wooseok sat outside with Xion on the front porch swing for a late night talk session, the both of them sitting in silence for a bit. "It's strange," said Wooseok as he looked out over the front yard. "Things have changed so much," he said. "And yet I still feel the same as before, just in a different position," he said.

"You're trying your best," said Xion. "I can tell from the way you never interfere with anything unless Yohan directly asks you, he's trying to keep his promise," he said. "Yeah, I guess," said Wooseok as he sighed. Xion hummed, looking deep in thought.

"How's things for you and your brother, really?" Asked Wooseok. "Could be better," said Xion. "We're doing our best to work with what we have," he said. "Lately I've been getting more sleep because of traveling but," he said, shrugging. "We were only home for a week when you called for us," he whined, pouting as he did so. Wooseok chuckled some. "Sorry, I didn't know who else to turn to," he said. "I could've asked for anyone, but I trust you, your brother and Hwanhee," he said.

"How's things for you?" Asked Xion as he turned to Wooseok. "Mm," said Wooseok as he shrugged. "Better now at least," he said. "I'm not as burdened as I was when I was alpha," he said. "It doesn't mean that I don't have to take care of the pack however," he added. "I still do, but Yohan has the final say," he explained. "I see," said Xion.

"How are you doing with sleep?" Asked Wooseok. "I could get more," said Xion. "But I get as much sleep as I can," he said. "I wish I could get more sometimes but it's impossible," he said. "Can't even sleep in wolf form anymore," he said. "I end up spending the nights running, whenever we're home anyway," he said.

"Your brother is doing well it seems," said Wooseok. "He is," agreed Xion. "He's not as weary as he was when you met him at least," he added. "He seemed to be exhausted with life," agreed Wooseok. "But now, he's happier than he was, I can see it," he said. Xion hummed in agreement.
