[center [i [font "times new roman" Being a Blackwell isn't all it's cracked up to be. Maxwell and Melina have been though hell and back. Their father Xavier has put a bounty on his children, because he thinks they are dangerous. When in reality they aren't. They are just normal shifters, trying to live among the humans. When Melina was a baby, and Maxwell was all but four years old was when he had witnessed his mother being killed. His father had killed the woman, while Maxwell was hiding with Melina. Watching his father murder his mother had stuck with him over the years, and he was glad Melina didn't have to live with that. He wouldn't wish that upon anyone.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" As the Blackwell siblings grew older, things were changing inside of them. Maxwell was gaining his powers quickly, while Melina still hasn't gained any. She can only shift into a tiger, while Maxwell can shift and control the element of fire. Melina has been getting more and more annoyed with that thought, but Maxwell knew she would gain her's in time. Meanwhile Xavier has hired [b Male Two] and [b Female Two] to watch over his children. He wanted them to get close to the siblings, and he was paying them a mighty price for it. He wanted to know what their weaknesses are, and how he could destroy them. [b Male Two] has been watching Melina, and following her to work everyday, while [b Female Two] has been going to the bar where Maxwell works.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" As [b Male Two] and [b Female Two] were getting to know their targets, there was something else stirring inside of Xavier. He didn't know what it was, or why but he wanted his children's blood more than anything. He wanted them dead, and he would do anything to make that happen. He had killed his ex-wife in cold blood, and he would do it over again. He didn't want Melina and Maxwell walking around on the earth anymore. He had let them slip away one to many times. Now it's time he get his ass in gear. Xavier gave the order, and it was time to move in for the kill. [b Male Two] and [b Female Two] were starting to have second thought's about the whole thing, and that wasn't a good idea. Period. They both knew, they would be in danger if they acted upon their feelings.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" When Maxwell and Melina get wind of who [b Male Two] and [b Female Two] really are, is when their whole world comes crashing down around them. They didn't want to trust anyone, but [b Male Two] and [b Female Two] were good at what they do. Melina and Maxwell were about to head out on the run again, when [b Male Two] and [b Female Two] stopped them. They broke down and told them everything. How they came across Xavier, and how they had needed the money in the first place. But things changed. They got to know the Blackwell's, and now they are needing to protect the shifters at all costs. Will Melina and Maxwell believe them? Or will [b Male Two] and [b Female Two] have their heart's broken? You will never know unless you join, [b [u Read Between The Lines]].]]]

Make sure the message is titled [b Come and Find me] so I know you read this, along with the rules. Please fill out this simple skelton as well.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u The rules of Read Between The Lines.]]]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u First-]] The pictures are going to be real. None of the over used shit either. If it's too big, I will ask you to resize it to a smaller size. If you can't find one to your liking, simply message me and ask me for help. I would be more than happy to help you look, or edit your picture for you. Just don't get mad at me, if I ask you to change/edit it.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u Second-]] Romance will might be a big part of this story, but not at first. Just like in real life you have to work up to it. It's not a love at first sight type of thing. Cybering is a no on this site, if you want to keep the story line going, then we can move this to e-mail, or just skip it all together. That won't happen for awhile though, so we won't need to talk about that right away.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u Third-]] Joining and then ditching is a no. If you don't like where this role play is going, simply message me and we can plot something out. Or if you are simply bored of it, and don't want to do it anymore, simply message me and tell me. I won't be mad if you get tired of it. Just if you join and then never post, is when I will be slightly annoyed with you. So please, at least talk to me about leaving the thread.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u Forth-]] Plot twists is a must. I love plotting things out, and see where we want it to go. It's not that hard to become my friend either. So if you have something in mind, and wanna run it by me, all you gotta do is message me and be like 'Hey! I have an idea, and I just wanted to see what you thought about it!'. Because honestly I will do the same thing to you, so don't be surprised if you get messages from me about ideas.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u Fifth-]] Stealing this idea is a no. It's something that's important to me. If I see anything like it, or someone stealing the main idea I will make it known you stole it from me. I have worked hard on this idea, and if you like it that much, ask me if you can borrow it. Just make sure to give me the credit for it. I will most likely say yes to letting you borrow it, as long as you ask me first.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u Sixth-]] Posting. I know we all have lives outside of this site. I work full time, and sometimes on my day's off I'm not always on until later that night. So if you need a couple of days to post, I'm okay with that. If you are gonna be gone for a week or two, please let me know because if you don't, then I'll think you ditched out on me. I will do the same thing for you as well. If I can't post, or having a hard time I will make sure to let you know.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u Seventh-]] We can talk about this having and ending, or we can keep it long going. I really don't mind what we do. We can always add in more characters down the line as well. I'm more than happy to double up as a male. Right now though, I think it'll be better if we just stick with Blythe and the main Male. See where we go, and if we need to add in more characters we can. I can play up to four at one time, but that's my limit. I can't play more than that.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u Eighth-]] Doubling is a must. As you can see I'm playing both Blackwell siblings. So I'm asking you to do the same thing. If you only apply for one character and not the other, I will deny you the spot. Sometimes you have to break out of your comfort zone, and try new things. I'm doing this to make it fair on the both of us. So please don't try to change my mind about you playing one character and not the other.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u Ninth-]] Please for the love of God don't message me over and over asking when I'm gonna post. That's something I really hate, and it get's on my nerves when that happens. I like to take time on my posts, and I like to make sure it's the way I want it. If you see me online, I'm most likely working on my post, and making sure it's done right. If I take two weeks to post, that's when you can message me and ask what's going on. Other than that, do not bug me to post, and I will not bug you to post either.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u Tenth-]] I love details inside of my role play's. I can post well over 1,000 words. Yes I said 1,000 words. That's only if I have the right partner, and if I have a lot in my head for a post. For this story though I'm only looking for about 500-600 words a post. If I need to put a posting limit I will. Anything less than that, and I will lose interest, or it'll take me longer to post because I don't have anything to work off of. So please don't make me put a posting limit.]]]

[center [i [font "times new roman" [b [u Eleventh-]] Now that I'm done sounding like a total bitch, I want this to be enjoyable for the both of us. That's what writing is about anyway. Having fun, and making something beautiful together. So please enjoy writing with me, and let's make something amazing, and see where this will lead.]]]

Roleplay Responses

[font "times new roman" This male was interesting in every way possible, he made her feel things, and made her drop her guard at least for a little while. She shrugged a bit when he took her hand, and she looked down at their joined hands. She didn't like the heat she was feeling from them. She slipped her hand out from his, and her heart hammered inside of her chest. What was she doing? She was getting way too comfortable for her own liking, and she didn't want that happening. At least not right away.]

[font "times new roman" When he leaned in and brushed some hair out of her eyes, she pulled back. She couldn't do this, not here, not now. She wouldn't mind meeting his sister later on down the road either. She bit the inside of her cheek for a moment before speaking. [#DDA0DD "Because if I give into human desires, I don't think I'd be able to stop myself from coming back for more. Also your sister sounds like a dream, I wouldn't mind meeting her one day. As for my drawings, you'd have to be a really special person for me to show them to you"] she admitted.]

[font "times new roman" She didn't let just anyone see them either. Sometimes she wouldn't even let Max see what she's done. Mandus might be different, but at the same time she didn't know for sure. She shrugged a bit as she pulled her phone out and checked the time. It was a little after three, and she didn't realize time had gotten away from them. She slid her phone back into her pocket, and stood. [#DDA0DD "I will have to take you up on that later. I've spent way too much here, and I need to get home"] she said lightly.]

[font "times new roman" She had so many plans to get job applications done, along with getting the house cleaned, and laundry done. She didn't know when Maxwell would be home, since he was pulling somewhat of a double at the bar. She looked towards Mandus and slid her hands into her pockets. [#DDA0DD "You know what, grabbing something to eat sounds perfect. I'll let Star know, and you and I can just get out of here. Considering Star was my ride, you'll have to take me home"] she said with a small smile.]

[font "times new roman" She slid her phone back out, and sent Star a quick message letting her know that she was still with Mandus, and that she would talk to her later about everything that happened. She then looked back towards the male and cocked her head to the side. [#DDA0DD "So where are we going?"]]

[font times Mandus could read body language very well. And Melina was pretty much in bold italics. This was both good, and bad. She was beautiful, sweet, and he could see himself in any other circumstance being in an honest relationship with her. But, what he was doing now, was being deceitful. Nonetheless, it was a job. And watching how he made her nervous was fun. He couldn't remember the last time he'd met a shy one.

[b [#356ea7 "Oh an artist? I'd like to see some of your work sometime."]] He told her. [b [#356ea7 "I live with my little sister a ways away. She's kind of artsy a way. She's [i quite] the gardner."]] He smiled a bit to himself as he thought of the hard work that Luno put into making their little house a home. He would work on the heavy labor like fixing the roof or plumbing, and she'd focus on the garden and dinner when she had the energy. He wondered if she was doing alright with her part of the mission. Mandus gave Melina a playful nudge. [b [#356ea7 "Well, thank your lucky Star that I was able to get through to you. I was beginning to think I'd never see you again."]] And he couldn't have that.

Melina was terrible at concealing her true intentions. Laughably so. Mandus supposed he could have a little fun with this at the very least. He gently reached down and took one of her hands. [b [#356ea7 "And why wouldn't you do what you want? Why abstain from fulfilling human desire?"]] He said, slowly leaning in more and more. He used his free hand to brush some hair behind her ear and leaned down to whisper, [b [#356ea7 "Perhaps we should head back?"]] He asked before standing up and looking down at her. [b [#356ea7 "Or, we can go and grab a bite to eat and have drink. I'm sure your friend wouldn't mind if we checked out for a bit."]]

[font "times new roman" Max understood all too well and he didn't blame her for reacting like she did. [#5baf6d "Just to let you know, I didn't ask Ginger to do any of that. I don't know fully what you told her, but there's two sides of the story. If you don't wanna come back, then don't. Just don't plan on coming back to the bar. I'll make sure to let the bouncer know. If you do come tonight he'll let you in, but if you don't and you try to come any time after that, you won't be granted access"] he hissed. He watched as she walked away, and rolled his eyes. She was being childish.]

[font "times new roman" Yes he had gotten the stalker vibe off of her, but he hadn't sent his friend to question her. That had been Ginger all around. He shoved his hands into his pockets and made his way back to the bar. He wasn't in the mood to really deal with people anymore. He spotted Ginger and the other male and cocked his head to the side. [#5baf6d "Good job on fucking that up. You should have let me handle it"] he snapped. Ginger looked slightly hurt. [#ff00ff "What did I do? I just approached her and asked, because you weren't going to do it"] she snapped right back.]

[font "times new roman" [b "You both are kind of in the wrong here. Yes Ginger shouldn't have done what she did. But you should have also talked to the woman as well. Just hopefully she'll come back and talk to you. If not, sorry bud"] he said. Maxwell just shrugged it off. Luno wouldn't be the first woman to walk away. There were plenty more where that came from. He then turned to the other's. [#5baf6d "Could you both leave? I'm not in the mood to have either one of you here"] he said. Ginger was about to say something, when she was stopped. [b "We were leaving anyway. Stay safe"] he said.]

[font "times new roman" Maxwell nodded lightly as he watched them leave. He knew he was being a total asshole, but what other choice did he have? He sighed lightly wishing that things had played out differently. He was kicking himself for not talking to Luno about it first, but at the same time he was glad Ginger did. He shook his head, and went about cleaning the bar. He wiped down the counters, and got ready for the night. It was going to be hella long, and he was already tired as shit.]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[font "times new roman" That wasn't what the woman was expecting. She thought he would have fired off some really sexual questions, but she was glad he didn't. Maybe she shouldn't have told him to ask her anything. She didn't like to talk about herself much, but what other choice did she have? She might as well start now. When he leaned against her a bit, her heart fluttered inside of her chest. Was this what it felt like to feel attracted to someone so early on? The nerves she was dealing with made it kind of hard to think. She focused the best she could though. She took a breath and started speaking.]

[font "times new roman" [#DDA0DD "Right now I'm between jobs. I'm actively searching though, because I can't stay at home for longer than two days. In my free time I do a lot of drawing, or writing. I'm not always at the apartment. I normally have my sketch pad on me, but today I decided against it. I live with my older brother Maxwell, because well as you now know, I pretty much can't afford living on my own. You are the first person I've really met outside of a party. If it wasn't for Star though either, I don't think I would be sitting here with you"] she finally stopped and looked towards him.]

[font "times new roman" [#DDA0DD "Also with you being this close, I feel like I want to do something out of the norm for me, but I know it's something that I shouldn't do, so I'm not going to do it"] she admitted. She wanted to just run and hide. She couldn't believe she admitted something like that to him. She babbled when she was nervous, and that's just what she was. She put her hands in her lap, and started playing with her fingers. She didn't know what else to say at the moment, without making herself look like an even bigger fool.]
  lιneѕ / ButterflyRose / 16d 20h 50m 50s
[font times Luno was absolutely [i livid] with herself. This was one of the most embarrassing things to have happened to her. How could she possibly explain herself. What was she supposed to say? [i 'A strange man claiming to be your father has paid us good money to watch you and your sister your entire lives, so please make it easy on us and continue as usual.'] No! That's not how things worked. Not even in movies! And to be called out so publicly and not even from the person she was watching...It made her skin crawl. Luno had never been great with people. She'd never had friends growing up, people didn't tend to notice her, and she was still a virgin for Christs' sake! She would never go in that bar again! Her little heart wouldn't be able to handle any further embarrassment. Ugh, she felt like she was going to be sick.

She could hear footsteps coming up behind her but just added it to the sound of the other pedestrians who kept this sidewalk busy. The girl would learn to regret not being more attentive when she felt a strong hand grab her arm, causing her to cry out in alarm. She whipped around to see who it was and though he was familiar, it didn't make her feel anymore relieved. She ripped her arm out of his grip and gave it a bit of a rub as she took a few steps back to put space between them. Again with the questions. She'd already gave Ginger her reasoning, and she wasn't in the mood to explain it to him again. Luno was about to explain as much before she received an unexpected invitation.

Come [i back] to the bar? Why on earth would she do that!? She highly doubted that his friends wouldn't be there to be ambushed and she did not want to be deceived. Her brow was knotted with worry as she studied the ground while he made his offer. She'd been in the bar frequently and it had never seemed to bother him before. He had even seemed to like seeing her there, so she thought things were fine. In all honesty, if she was coming off to obviously stalker like, she would rather hear it out of his own mouth rather than one of his snarky little cronies. When he finished talking, she looked up at him with those little hazel eyes of hers. [b [#5bca21 "I'll think about it."]]

That was all she said before she turned and walked away, trying to move at a faster pace this time. She just wanted to go home and lie in her garden. Maybe even do some work.

[center ***]

[right [pic]] Mandus stayed focused on the task at hand. Even though Melina was beautiful, she was also an assignment. And he couldn't let himself forget that. He turned his attention towards the trees for a moment and took in the gentle breeze that blew through their little secret space. It was a soothing moment for him, a rare thing. The rustling of the tree branches scraping against one another while the leaves fluttered sent a small wave of relief through him. It was centering. He didn't need to let emotions get in the way of business. Luno wouldn't dare to either.

He looked to Melina and chuckled as he listened to her words. [b [#356ea7 "Then I'll keep charming you until you can't bear to be without me~"]] He teased, his deep voice quieting into a gentle whisper so she would have to pay close attention to his words. He smiled at her, showing off his set of perfectly aligned, vigorous teeth. If Melina looked hard enough, she'd notice how his canines seemed a bit longer and...sharper than the rest of them. Dangerously so. He toned down the grin a bit when she moved closer and raised a brow in curiosity. [b [#356ea7 "Hmmm...I can ask you anything I want?"]] He echoed. He leaned back on one hand and stroked his chin playfully, like an old man in deep thought. [b [#356ea7 "Tell me about yourself. Where do you work? What do you like to do in your free time...other than meet strange men you met at a party?" He teased, leaning into her a bit.
  Luno (ill) / MistetDreamer / 18d 19h 2m 11s
[font "times new roman" Ginger shook her head lightly turning her light blue eyes onto the other woman. [#ff00ff "I know Max is a really nice person, but you are coming off a bit creepy to a lot of people. I'm just trying to understand why is all"] she said lightly. She hadn't meant to run the other off, and she rolled her eyes as she stood and moved back towards the other's. [b "What the fuck happened? I've never seen anyone leave so fast before"] the male said. Maxwell watched as Luno left the building, and couldn't help but wonder if he should chase after her.]

[font "times new roman" [#ff00ff "I don't think she likes being called out on her shit, because that's exactly what happened. She said that Max has been really nice to her, but I just don't understand why she wouldn't be around when he's not working. If she liked this place so much, she would want other's to see her"] she said with a small shrug of her shoulders. [b "Damn, so I was right about her stalking him?"] the other asked. Maxwell looked at his two friends and rolled his eyes. He called out to Tyler and told him he would be right back. He then slipped out from behind the bar, and ran out the doors.]

[font "times new roman" He came to a stop and looked up and down the streets and then spotted the woman. He ran to catch up to her. He reached out and grabbed her arm. [#5baf6d "Listen, I'm sorry about that. Ginger is a bit hard to handle, and when it comes to me, she's always so blunt. You didn't have to leave. But she did have a point. I have noticed you are always there when I am, and when I'm not you aren't. Why?"] he asked her. He wanted to know the reason behind it, and he was bound to get the answers he wanted.]

[font "times new roman" [#5baf6d "How about this, before you answer any of my questions, you go home take a breath, and then come back. I'm going to be here all day pretty much, and I will have some down time before we start really serving the adults for the night. So when that happens, you and I can really sit down and talk. I'm sorry about Ginger though"] he said as he reached up and rubbed the back of his neck. He honestly didn't know why he had chased her down. Something was drawing him to her, and it kind of scared him. He smiled sheepishly towards her.]

[font "times new roman" [#5baf6d "What do ya say? Let me make it up to you? Ginger and her boyfriend won't be around, and I can make you one of my best drinks, and we can go from there"] he offered her. He then shoved his hands into his pockets, as he waited for her to even say something. He didn't know if he would see her again, but he hoped that she would take him up on his offer, and come back to really sit down and talk. He hadn't meant to have his friends accuse her, that he was trying to make it up to her in anyway possible.]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[font "times new roman" Seeing the way he looked around the little spot made her smile a bit. It really was out of the way of everything, and you couldn't hear the other voices of people in the park. It was like they were in their own little world, and she liked it. She blushed even more when he spoke about liking her, and pretty much wanting to get to know her more. She put her hands on her thighs as he sat down. She wanted nothing more than to just pull him in, and kiss him. That was a strange thought for her and it kind of startled her a bit too.]

[font "times new roman" [#DDA0DD "Well if you keep up the charm, then I might as well just keep you to myself. Not let anyone else around you, unless it's someone in your family or a really close friend. Other than that, I don't think I'd want another woman around you"] she admitted. What the fuck was wrong with her right now? She was admitting things she shouldn't be admitting. She bit the inside of her cheek lightly as she lowered her eyes to the ground. She knew she had to keep her mouth shut, otherwise she would end up saying something she would regret later.]

[font "times new roman" [#DDA0DD "So, seeing as you and I are alone, and no one else around, you are more than welcome to ask me anything. Doesn't matter if it's personal or not. If it's too personal, I'll let you know"] she said softly looking up towards him. She shifted a bit, and streached her legs out in front of her. She then stood and closed the little gap he had placed between them. She sat back down, her leg softly bumping against his. The feeling was comfortable, and at the same time it seemed to stir something inside of her as well.]

[font "times new roman" There was so many thoughts running around in her mind that she didn't know what to really do with herself. She put her hands in her lap, before turning her gaze onto the male once more. [#DDA0DD "If I need to move, let me know"] she breathed out. She hoped he wouldn't mind, but would understand if he moved, because they barely knew each other after all. Hopefully that would be changing soon.]
  lιneѕ / ButterflyRose / 19d 11h 53m 8s
[font times Luno wasn't a very outspoken person normally, and people tended to overlook her because of it. She didn't need anyone telling her she needed to put herself out there more- she was already trying her best. Her brother usually handled everything and she did the background work. Of course, the nature of the job was such that she would have to take the lead on her own target. It was difficult at first, she didn't like to approach people. Over time, however, the more she came into the bar, the more she got to know about him. Well, not like they ever talked about him or herself, but she could tell that he was kind. And she gravitated towards kindness. This only made her feel a little bad about her job. But not as badly as Mandus felt about it. He was always much softer towards situations where someone may get hurt. Whereas Luno saw it as a necessary evil if they wanted to survive in this world.

She held her glass in both hands, not wanting to drop it as she sipped from the straw. He always made it perfectly. Not too much honey and certainly never wasting space with ice. Ice was a scam! When he pretty much scolded her, she just kind of smiled around her straw. She took a look around her for a brief moment and raised a brow. It looked like liquor sales were doing just fine. The boss could do with a regular just wanting a glass of honey water...although...she [i was] curious about the other drinks she saw people ask for. The drink menu was short but she'd heard people call out for things that she'd never seen on there or heard of. In fact, she'd never had a hard drink a day in her life. She could never afford it. Of course, she wasn't going to tell him that. Luno wasn't there to tell personal stories, this was work.

She watched him greet a few others and wondered if those were his friends. They looked nice enough. She didn't want to stare, so instead, she refocused her attention on the menu in front of her. The girl would match the ingredients to bottles on display to try and get a good idea of what each drink would look like completed. Luno had been so in her head, that she didn't realize that one of his friends had gotten up to move to the seat beside her. Ginger's voice was startling, but thankfully not enough so that Luno would drop her glass.

Luno took a little breath and turned in her seat slightly to face the girl who had taken it upon herself to investigate the purpose of Luno's frequent visits. She listened, and after the term 'stalking' was used, her face fell. It wasn't because she was all that upset, she just needed a moment to process a response. But, to those who didn't know her, she did look a little hurt. She looked over at Maxwell and wondered if that's how he interpreted it. It was indeed what she was doing but she was being paid, so was it truly stalking? She set her half empty glass back on the counter and looked back towards Ginger. Luno needed to say something. Anything.

Her fingers fidgeted nervously over each other for a bit before she grabbed her purse and pulled out a couple of bills. [b [#5bca21 "I...I-I...don't have a lot of...p-people to talk to. Just my brother."]] The petite girl put the money on the counter and looked in Maxwell's direction. [b [#5bca21 "He's nice to me. Nicer than most have been. I didn't mean to make him uncomfortable. Or you as his friends."]] Her voice was shaking. She wasn't good with confrontation. How did she get so far in this job? Well, up until now, no one had questioned her on her purpose. [b [#5bca21 "I guess I am being a bit overbearing?"]] Her face was turning a bit red and she looked moderately embarrassed as she slowly slipped out of her seat and quietly walking out of the bar. Perhaps that would be all the people watching she could manage for the day.

Mandus smiled at her and made sure to keep his arm steady so she could brace against him if she needed. He could see her blushing, but wouldn't say anything of it. It was too soon to start really teasing her about anything. He put his hands in his pockets when he was sure she was steady on the ground and gestured in a random direction when she mentioned taking him to her favorite place as if to say 'lead the way!'. He had been to the park a few times but he didn't ever explore it the way Luno did. That girl was always looking for somewhere to hide. He'd seen her scramble through a McDonald's PlayPlace before and it was a trial trying to get her out of the tunnel.

As he followed Melina, he watched her closely, wondering if Luno had been right. Meeting her under the pretense of a date. It was a bit deceitful. But he had never been an honest man. But he liked her. She seemed sweet. He snapped out of his thoughts when he heard her question and it didn't take him very long to answer. [b [#356ea7 "Well...I liked what I saw. So I decided to find out if I'd like what I heard. And I did. I still do. You can't be mad at a man for wanting to shoot his shot."]] He said with a smirk.

He looked around as they entered the grove and had to admit, it was a beautiful little spot. Perfect for a picnic. [b [#356ea7 "This little corner of the world is so out of the way, I wouldn't doubt that you have it all to yourself."]] He sat down on the end of the trunk, making sure not to sit too close to her, wanting to give herself some space. [b [#356ea7 "And, hopefully, if you find that you like me'll also keep me to yourself~"]]

[font "times new roman" Maxwell smirked lightly and shook his head. He took down the woman's order and reached for a glass and filled it up. [#5baf6d "Aren't you ever going to get something stronger? Hell you are pretty lucky that we even serve something like this. My boss doesn't like when his liquor sales go down hill. So I suggest next time you are here, get something different, and maybe live a little"] the male said as he placed her honey water in front of her. He looked over his shoulder as a couple of people were calling him. He excused himself and went to the other end of the bar. He reached out and high fived a couple of the men, and leaned over hugging the women.]

[font "times new roman" He was out of ear shot of the dark haired female, and one of his friends leaned in. [b "Dude, is that the chick you've been talking about? She's pretty yes, but I don't like the stalker vibe I'm getting off of her. The way she's looking at you and everything"] he said. The red head smacked him upside the head. [#ff00ff "She's not stalking him. This is the best bar in town, and Maxwell is one of the better bar tenders as well"] she said grinning. That made Maxwell feel slightly better about the talk they were having.]

[font "times new roman" [#5baf6d "I mean, she's here every time I'm working, and I've been in the bar on my day's off and she's never seen around here. I've asked a couple of my coworkers, and they've said the same time. I honestly feel like she's watching me"]]

[font "times new roman" [b "I fucking told you man! You have your own personal stalker over there. If she's not here when you aren't working, then she's really stalking you"]]

[font "times new roman" [#ff00ff "I swear to God you both need to calm down. She's not stalking you. Hell I'll go and ask her myself"] Ginger said. Before Maxwell, or Dominick could do anything else, Ginger was walking up to the woman. She slid onto the stool next to her, and turned her attention to the woman next to her. [#ff00ff "I know this is going to sound insane, but hear me out"] she said with a warm smile, trying not to come off as creepy as she felt.]

[font "times new roman" [#ff00ff "Maxwell and my boyfriend were talking about, and Dominick is dead set on you stalking Maxwell. I don't think you are, but if you are, why are you stalking him? Max does have a point, you are only here when he's working. You aren't here when he's not. I understand that this is the best bar in town, and Max is a really well known guy around here. So tell me, are you stalking my best friend?"] she asked her. Maxwell on the other hand turned his back towards the two women.]

[font "times new roman" He was kicking himself for not stopping Ginger, but what other choice did he have? Maybe he'd get a straight answer as to why he felt like the woman was always watching him. Maybe it was for the best, but at the same time he felt like something bad was about to happen as well.]

[font "times new roman" A slow smile passed over the woman's lips and shrugged a bit. [#DDA0DD "Normally I'm not one to really give my number out to people. There are only a few people in my life that have it, and it's my brother and best friend. Well.. now you as well"] she admitted. When he said she was a lot prettier in the light she felt her cheeks turn a small shade of pink. She wasn't used to men complementing her like this. The only person that did was Maxwell, and that's about it. Every other male she's tried to talk too takes one look at her, and pretty much runs the other way.]

[font "times new roman" Seeing how tall he really was, made her heart thunder against her chest. She was so small compared to him. She took his arm that he offered her, and slid off the bench. Sure enough she was a lot smaller than he was. She barely reached his chest. She tilted her head back and looked up at him, a real smile passing over her lips just then. [#DDA0DD "If you don't mind being with a short stack like myself, I'll take you to one of my favorite parts of the park"] she said. She then wrapped her arms around herself and looked down at the ground. This was another first for her, and it was making her head spin.]

[font "times new roman" She turned and headed back the way she had first come, knowing her would be able to catch up with her. When she was standing upright she was a good five foot six. She even felt short around her own brother. She then turned her attention back to the male she was walking with. [#DDA0DD "So what made you want to even talk to me in the first place? Not many people do, and when they do they either don't like what they hear, or what they see. So I'm really curious as to why you chose to talk to me in the first place."] she meant it too. She wasn't complaining, it just surprised her is all.]

[font "times new roman" As she was walking, she rounded a small bed and moved towards a grove of trees. She didn't know if a lot of people knew about this small place, but she loved it. She moved through the trees, and ducked down a little bit and came into a small clearing. The sun was somewhat filtering through the leaves, and she moved to a small tree trunk and sat down. [#DDA0DD "I know it's nothing special, but this place is my favorite. It's quiet, and it seems to shut every other sound out"]]

[font "times new roman" [#DDA0DD "I don't know if other's know about it, and apart of me hopes they don't, but if they do I can't really do anything about it"] she admitted. She shifted so she was in the middle of the trunk and pulled her legs up under her. She was still waiting for him to explain why he had chosen her out of everyone else in the world to get to know.]

[font "times new roman" The day would begin like every other for the two of them; Mandus rising early before the dawn and preparing breakfast for himself and his feminine counterpart. It was a quaint breakfast of blackened sausage and scrambled eggs prepared in a single cast iron over a gas lit stove. A simple cup of tea to wash it down and an extra cup waited to be sipped from by it's owner. A fragile piece of dining ware that was so delicately embellished upon with green swirls and tiny blue birds.]

[font "times new roman" The two of them lived simply for the most part, for they could not afford much in the ways of luxury. Thought they managed to buy a house for themselves, there were repairs to be made, bills to be paid, and savings to build interest on. Nothing in life was free. Which is what had led them into the employ of the sinister Xavier Blackwell; though the true blackness of his heart was still yet to be uncovered by the two. Mandus often wondered if they were doing the right thing...or if they would be able to complete their task at all. They were being paid top dollar for their services- To simply watch the Blackwell siblings. But so much money for such a simple task... The longer they participated, the harder Mandus found it to sleep at night. He was waiting for the big bang.]

[font "times new roman" There was a break in his thoughts as he heard the sound of soft foot steps in different areas of the house. This was soon followed by the creaking of the pantry door opening just beside the kitchen dining table. A woman of small stature emerged, finally making her appearance. Her hair was a mess of unruly black curls falling down past her waist and brushing against the heels of her feet as she walked to the table. A simple, white cotton night shirt concealed her form; though from the way it fit, she didn't have the most...voluptuous figure. No, in fact, she was quite petite in comparison to the women around her.]

[b [font "times new roman" [#5bca21 "You're officially going to make contact today. But you're setting it up as a date?"]]] [font "times new roman" Her voice was soft but mature, carrying with it a tone of disapproval towards her companion. She took her seat and gently took the teacup set aside for her.] [b [font "times new roman" [#356ea7 "Good morning Luno."]]] [font "times new roman" Mandus quietly greeted her, his voice deep and warm. Luno pressed her lips together quietly for a moment and sipped at her tea. [b [font "times new roman" [#5bca21 "I just don't understand why you've had to present yourself to her like that. It was...risky..."]]] Mandus raised a brow at her and set down his fork after swallowing the last of his sausage. [b [font "times new roman" [#356ea7 "No riskier than you outright walking into h i s place of work and drawing attention to yourself. Hard to believe you used to be the fun one.]]] He teased. The rest of breakfast continued with them bickering back and forth with it turning into light teasing.]

[font times The two were very close, as much was obvious. They had grown up together after their own tragedy had struck them during their youth. Still, years later, there be never one without the other...which made this job all the more difficult. When given this assignment initially, it was difficult for either of them to calm the anxiety that came with being separated for such long hours but they managed. And very soon came up with a way to cope with their long days apart. was more for Luno than anything.]

[font times Their morning rituals now complete, it was time to say good bye. They stood outside their front door, dressed for their respective agendas for the day; her in a moss green turtleneck and tan slacks, with all her hair miraculously tied back into a neat bun. Him in a cobalt sweater and black trousers. She checked her purse and he checked his pockets to make sure that all was in order before Luno held out her little finger towards him. Mandus chuffed in the way an older brother would when he felt his little sister was being adorably silly. He still did it if only to settle her nerves. Thus began their daily promise.]

[font times After she had dedicated a bit of time to memorizing his routine, Luno had a good idea of Maxwell's schedule. She wasn't the type to leave room for error and did her best to be as inconspicuous as possible when making her oh so frequent visits to his bar. This particular day was a little different as he was picking up an earlier shift, so of course logic dictated that she must be early as well. At first her visits were brief- pop in, pretend to drink something, pop out. Slowly, she began to stay longer and even began to engage him in light, polite conversation. She had to stay focused on her task but she didn't want to seem rude or...weird by not talking to him. She was becoming one of their most frequent customers after all.]

[font times She waited quietly to be served, not wanting the current employee to feel even more pressure by her making a request. She wasn't here for him anyway. Her fingertips lightly tapped on the surface of the bar as she tuned in to the music playing on the overhead speakers. Luno seemed almost lost in thought until she heard that familiar voice from the back. Her eyes watched Maxwell as he seemed to jump into action, taking order after order. Some of the patrons weren't as patient as others and nearly shouted their demands at him. When he finally came to her, she offered him a small smile and leaned in ever so slightly so she could be heard. [b [font times [#5bca21 "Just the usual. Seltzer and honey...with a lemon wedge. Please."]]] If she wasn't drinking tea, she was drinking some variation of honey water. And at the bar, she liked it fizzy. [b [font times [#5bca21 "Take all the time you need. You look like you've got your hands full already."]]]

[font times Mandus and his friend chatted quietly amongst themselves as they waited for the girls to arrive. He had finally managed to establish his presence with the Blackwell girl...and yet he had no other way to contact her but through her friend. It was a bit of a trial to get it through to Star that he was really just wanting to speak with Melina. No matter how many times he brought her up. Well, it was better than nothing; at least he was able to meet with her again the next day. Talking to her last night was actually quite fun. It was basic bar chatter but she could really carry a conversation. Mandus felt it should be no problem to gather a bit of info from her own mouth then.]

[font times Both men looked up and over when they heard two sets of footsteps and smiled at the girls. The friend got up to greet them and was immediately whisked away to a separate bench. Mandus just chuckled, hoping his friend could survive getting his ear talked off. When he had turned his attention back to Melinda, he was a little surprised to see her on top of the table like that. He slowly stood from his seat and leaned against the edge of the table, crossing his arms as he chuckled. He could easily be considered a giant standing at a height of six foot six. He towered over the table. [b [font times [#356ea7 "I'll admit, it was a bit of a battle trying to get your number but, I'm happy to just see you again. You're much prettier in the light."]]] He said before straightening up and offering his arm. [b [font times [#356ea7 "While I'd love to sit on these rather uncomfortable metal benches the entire time I have you to 'myself'...the park is a beautiful walk. Fancy a stroll?"]]]

[font "times new roman" The sound of pouring rain made the woman in the hooded cloak run faster. She had a bundle in her arms, and a little one in tow behind her. She kept looking over her shoulder seeing if they were being followed. Her heart was racing inside of her chest, and she knew pretty soon the monster she had married, would show up behind her. As she came to a stop behind a building, the bundle in her arms started to whimper. [#ff00ff "Shhh my darling. We are almost home, and you will be safe"] she said lightly.]

[font "times new roman" The small boy behind her was panting, and he wanted nothing more than to go home and crawl into his bed. His own heart was racing, and he knew to keep his mouth shut. Diana took Maxwell's hand and bent down in front of him. [#ff00ff "You will need to take care of your sister Maxwell. I want you to promise me you will"] she hissed. The child could only nod. He was only a small boy, but he knew they were in danger. He wouldn't speak, until he knew it was safe. Diana stood, looked up and down the street and started running again.]

[font "times new roman" As the woman rounded the corner, she could hear Xavier's voice behind her. [b "You can't keep them from me! I swear to god Diana, I will kill them!"] he bellowed. Diana's heart broke inside of her chest. She just hoped Maxwell didn't understand what was going on. Her home was in view finally and she ran inside. She pulled Maxwell in behind her, closed and locked the door behind him. [#ff00ff "Maxwell, take Melina and hide in my closet. He won't look for you in there"] she hissed.]

[font "times new roman" Maxwell took the bundle into his arms, and he nodded lightly. [#5baf6d "Yes momma.."] he breathed out. He didn't know if he should even say anything more. Diana looked over her shoulder and moved towards the living room window. [#ff00ff "Max baby, I love you. Now go"] she said shooing him away. He didn't have the time to tell her, he loved her too because she spun around and put herself between her children and the door. Maxwell turned and ran into the kitchen and up the back stairs. He could hear the thuds from downstairs, and he hurried up his pace.]

[font "times new roman" As soon as he was in his parent's room, and in the closet was when the door downstairs was thrown open. [#ff00ff "You will not lay a finger on my children!"] he could hear his mother yelling. [b "You can't stop me darling. If you tell me where they are, I might spare your life"] the older male said back. [#ff00ff "I will never tell you"] she spat back, and then threw all of her weight behind her fist. She slammed it into the man's face and ran up the stairs and into her room.]

[font "times new roman" She slammed the door closed and looked around. She then remembered the closet. She threw open the door, and she bent down. [#ff00ff "I love you and Melina so much baby boy. Whenever you wear these pendant's you will be protected. I promise you"] she whispered. She looked over her shoulder when Xavier started up the stairs. She hurried and gave the child two pendant's. She kissed Maxwell's forehead one last time, and then Melina's. She then shut the closet door and threw herself alongside the bed. She crouched down, and narrowed her eyes slightly. The door flew open, and there stood Xavier.]

[font "times new roman" [b "Where are they?"] he hissed. [#ff00ff "I told you, I will never tell you"] she snapped back. [b "Looks like, you three will burn together then"] he said with a dark laugh. The sound of his father talking like that, made Maxwell shudder. Melina started to whimper, and he covered her mouth. He sat there and listened. His father grabbed Diana, and slit her throat and tossed her body aside. He then walked out of the room. [b "Burn it down boys"] he called out. Maxwell knew, he had to get out of there, and quick.]

[font "times new roman" When he knew it was safe to do so, he hurried out of the closet, the pendants around his neck, and he hurried out of the window. He climbed down with Melina in his arms, the best he could. As soon as his feet touched the ground, was when the explosion was heard. The heat from the fire was too much. He felt tears sting his eyes, as he hurried to the woods and hid himself, and his sister there as Xavier stood there watching his home burning.]

[font "times new roman" [b "I know you aren't in there Maxwell, but I will find you. I will find your sister too. You both will be killed, just like your mother"] he hissed as he stood there watching his house burn to the ground...]

[left [pic]]

[font "times new roman" The memory was too much for the male. He shook his head lightly and ran a hand though his hair. He couldn't believe he had let himself relive that nightmare. Watching as his mother was killed would always stick with him. He was just glad Melina didn't have to deal with that. He hated his father more than anything though. He wanted that man dead, and he wasn't going to stop till he was. He knew that was a horrible thing to think, but he didn't care in the least. He sighed lightly as he threw his covers off and stood.]

[font "times new roman" He walked out of the room, and went to check on his sister. He wasn't surprised that she was still sleeping though. She had been out all night, and he didn't blame her. Living where they lived, would make him want to stay out too. He slowly made his way to the bathroom and he shut the door. He undressed and climbed into the shower. He shut the door, turned on the water and stood there under the cold stream of water. It was slowly waking him up, and that's all that mattered.]

[font "times new roman" He hurried and showered, and then climbed out. He wrapped a towel around his waist and walked back into his room. He made sure the door was closed behind him, before he dried off and then got dressed. It was going to be a long ass day, and he was worried about Melina as well. She had been more distant lately and he had a feeling as to why. He had his powers to shift, and his other powers as well. She didn't, and she felt like she was useless. She wasn't though. He sighed lightly as he found his uniform.]

[font "times new roman" He got dressed, and then put some gel into his hair and spiked it. He then found a notepad and wrote out a note. [#5baf6d [i Melina, I know you are still sleeping and you needed it. I headed to work early, because I have to pull a double today. I'm not going to be home at all. You can come on my lunch break though and talk. I love you Mel. Max.]] He read the note over, and knew it was the best he could do at the moment. He then slid his shoes on.]

[font "times new roman" He found some tape, and taped it to the wall across from her door. He then walked out of the house and went to his beat up truck. He slid in behind the wheel, started it up and headed into town. As he was driving, he placed one hand away from sight and lit a small flame with his fingers. He smirked lightly and let it go out. He couldn't be doing that at work. As he drove, his mind wandered to the woman that's been coming in. Would he see her today? He didn't know, but he sure hoped so.]

[font "times new roman" As soon as his building came into view, he pulled into the back parking lot, parked in his normal spot, shut the truck off and climbed out. He made sure to grab his apron and then headed inside. He let the door close behind him, and he clocked in. [#5baf6d "Andy! I'm here."] he called out. [b "Thank god man, I need you on the bar please"] his boss called out. He nodded a bit as he tied the apron around his waist. He then went out to the bar, and he saw the line already.]

[font "times new roman" He took up his spot, and started taking orders. Some had booze, other's just had drinks. Then his eyes fell on the woman. He was surprised she was here already. He wasn't complaining though. She was a looker that's for sure. A small smirk passed over his lips as he walked towards her. [#5baf6d "What can I get you?"] he asked, as he waited to take her order down.]

[right [pic]]

[font "times new roman" The night before had been needed badly. Melina had stayed out late with a couple of her friends, and she didn't get home till almost five in the morning. She slipped into the house as quietly as she could, and she went straight to her room. She got undressed and crawled under the blankets. She laid there for a while, and pretty soon sleep washed over the woman. It felt like she had been sleeping for five minutes when she heard her phone going off. She groaned and reached for it. [#DDA0DD "Hello?"] she answered, her voice groggy.]

[font "times new roman" [b "Bitch! Get the fuck up! It's almost noon"]]

[font "times new roman" [#DDA0DD "I don't care what time it is Star.. What do you want?"]]

[font "times new roman" [b "You remember that hottie from the bar last night? Well because you didn't give him your number, he messaged me. He wants to see you and I again today"]]

[font "times new roman" [#DDA0DD "So? That doesn't matter to me. Honestly I didn't think he would even message you"]]

[font "times new roman" [b "He keeps asking about you, and asking why I won't give him your number. I'm heading over to your place right now. He has a friend for me, but I think he wants to see you"] click...]

[font "times new roman" Melina laid there and rolled her eyes. She loved Star to death, but right now she just wanted sleep. She knew she couldn't though. She groaned lightly as she rolled out of bed. She walked to the door and drew it open. The first thing she saw, was the note from Maxwell. She rolled her eyes and ripped it down. [#DDA0DD "Fucker"] she muttered lightly. She knew she didn't have time for a shower, but she had time to brush her teeth.]

[font "times new roman" She hurried and got ready, and threw on some jeans, and a white off the shoulder sweater. Her mind was on the stranger she had met the night before. He had been eyeing her all night, and she had been eyeing him as well. She had been nervous to even talk to him, but he had made the first move. She talked to him for hours. She smiled lightly wishing she had given him her number after all. Oh well, maybe she would today. She had barely finished getting her shoes on, and was putting her hair into a ponytail when Star honked.]

[font "times new roman" She made sure she had everything, before running out the door. She slid into the car and looked at her friend. [#DDA0DD "Next time give me a couple of hours"] she said. [b "Honey, he wants to see you. I couldn't"] she said back. The two burst out laughing, as Star pulled away from the curb. Melina looked out the window, and wondered where they were going. As Star drove past the bar, her heart skipped a beat. She would have to talk to Maxwell, and soon. She couldn't keep brushing him off.]

[font "times new roman" [b "Okay, so he said to meet him at the park. I know he said he had a friend for me, so that's a good thing on his part. I didn't wanna be the third wheel anyway"] the woman babbled on. Melina just let her. Her heart was racing, and she was nervous all over again. As Star pulled into the parking lot of the park, she flipped the viser down and made sure she looked okay. She was happy enough. She then flipped it back up, and watched Star park. The car was shut off and the two were out.]

[font "times new roman" They linked arms, and walked towards a bench. Sure enough two men were sitting there. One was the male from the night before, and the other was his friend. Star walked up and took the friend's arm and the two were gone. Melina walked over and climbed on top of the table. She looked towards the male slightly and smiled. [#DDA0DD "I'm surprised you even got a hold of her, I thought you wouldn't"] she said lightly, before falling silent her eyes locking on his.]
