A call had come in two nights after the run in with the woman at Brakker’s. A civilian had been captured by a group of humans, but had managed to escape with the help of the female that had been missing for three months- Breonwyn, daughter of Wilhelm. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAhXeCweLlKC

The male had teleported away in jumps, carefully noting the path he took back to civilization so he could report the cabin’s location. After he had made it to the underground hospital he had called the Order and gave them the details before being sedated.50Please respect copyright.PENANAvW99lS4qNd

Almost all of them had been called in for this, all except for Brigg, Godric, Penn, and Theo, and they waited patiently underneath the shadows of the treeline. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAzTVTq6qBvG
Trace, Rid’s elder brother, sat across from Percy on a rock, while Rid took up space on a decaying log a few yards away. Trace and Percy watched the front while Alder and Birch watched the back windows, leaving Rid to watch the front with Young. Slade and Boothe watched the remaining side of the cabin.50Please respect copyright.PENANA5NEjpaybvj

There were windows on all walls, the blinds drawn closed and curtains drawn over the blinds. The night was quiet but for their breathing and the trickling of the nearby river that flowed through this portion of the Maedbell woods. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAO0fXaBQf1D

Cigarette smoke was kept downwind, Alder and Birch going burning through a whole box of cigarettes between the two as the hours passed. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAsBwouWuUyZ

Three hours after they had settled in, a crackling breached the air as a large SUV revved itself up the gravel drive, sending pebbles flying into the surrounding forest.50Please respect copyright.PENANABDMfXcpvoV
Three males jumped out of the SUV and made their way into the cabin. The warriors stood and the trees rustled behind them. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAOcW4a6F0lH

Alder sent a dagger flying with a neat hand into the shadows but no sound came from it. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAEOiacM7GHF

The woman from Brakker’s stepped out of the shadows, holding the dagger between two clean uncut fingers. She wore leather pants and a loose red shirt with an aged brown trench coat over top.50Please respect copyright.PENANAGijtygFXM4

“Nice blade. Yours, I take it?” She inquired with a wry grin, tossing the blade back at the vampire.50Please respect copyright.PENANASBgPFqVkrh

“Yes.” He replied, his voice stoic and as usual calm. 50Please respect copyright.PENANA255kgh6nYO

His usual grin on the other hand, was not on his face tonight.50Please respect copyright.PENANA3E6m8EDOCq

“Why are you here?” Slade asked, and they looked to him as he was their defacto leader. He was strung tight though and it was obvious.50Please respect copyright.PENANASv18kHzg20

“Straight, I like it.” She murmured, “If you must know, I am looking for someone.”50Please respect copyright.PENANAx45ColUvJS
copyright protection46PENANA7VqVngg4Q3

“Who?”50Please respect copyright.PENANAjMxq9F5MtI

She sighed, twirling a slender finger in her blonde curls.50Please respect copyright.PENANAcmdeuyW3OY

“Shouldn’t you be… I don’t know… rescuing the missing female? What’s her name, Bethany? No, Bianca? No, Bree maybe?”50Please respect copyright.PENANA3m39ZsvTXe

Slade’s topaz eyes narrowed on the petite female but she didn’t appear to care in the least.   50Please respect copyright.PENANAMg0jH9ZMWt

“What do you know about her?”50Please respect copyright.PENANAu9PIojhkn6
copyright protection46PENANADE3ZsnAw3Q

She laughed, her hand dropping and her hair catching the wind. Her laugh was carefree and confident, but it also gave hints of a less than stable mind.50Please respect copyright.PENANAjrsmBrO6lM

“A great many things! But go to go and all that!”50Please respect copyright.PENANAl73mqKwqxs

She waved, “Toodles and all that, boys!”50Please respect copyright.PENANAT2CJK032kq

Her form dispersed into what appeared to be air waves. 50Please respect copyright.PENANA8ESB1t3PAo

"Who the fuck was that?” Percy breathed, pinching his nose, “What was she?”50Please respect copyright.PENANACVvFhWpNmX

“I don’t know, but you should probably check out the cabin.” Birch stated, pointing at the roof where the woman was perched. She waved once more at them and blew a kiss.50Please respect copyright.PENANAggZSZKT2Me

Then, with all the subtlety of an elephant, dropped down and swung herself feet first into the first front window, shattering it with one blow. For a moment there was silence, then agonized male screams permeated the air. A minute later, the screams died out all at once, almost in unison. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAtVSmwTQzJq

Slade nodded and the warriors made their way toward the now dark cabin.50Please respect copyright.PENANAYlmt1EprsL

The cabin’s door had fallen off it’s hinges when a male had made a run for it. There were sparks flying in the air where a TV and a monitor had once been. The runner’s corpse was mangled and beheaded, with the weapon having been a phone cord somehow. It baffled them how intact the corpse still was, but they moved on, noting that the male had been stabbed in four places, keeping his body virtually chained to the ground. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAoI2nB18v4U

They came across the second of what was sure to be four, if there had indeed already been another human present when the others had arrived as they had thought. This one had been slashed open from the small of his back to the beginning of his neck. His spine was partially ripped out over the skin, part of it standing up an odd angle. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAJyQCVnvLXf

 The next two bodies were found in the back room, both mutilated violently. One was missing the lower half of his body, the other was missing his arms and legs. Impressive feat for such a thin woman.50Please respect copyright.PENANAcVByoCcN3E

Farther back was a staircase. Rid was the first to make his way down. The basement room was large, separated into two by the staircase. In one area flooring along with a drain hole had been uncovered. A body lay at the far back, where the woman stared. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAzsnCPZEYuJ

She was silent as she stared at the decomposing corpse. The rotting skeleton was male and covered with bits and pieces of rotting flesh. But she was only staring at the eyes, the only organs that had remained intact. They were the same color as her own, identical in every way. 50Please respect copyright.PENANATehJQd6mY3

It was clear that this had been the brother of hers that he had dreamed of. Kreiten, he had been called. Rid heard the others come down the stairs as well, most investigated the other side of the room while he and Slade hung closer to the woman. 50Please respect copyright.PENANABaZcJnPWbT

The woman, called Lia in his dream, shoved her hand through the skeletons ribs and into the space where its heart would have been. When she pulled it out, a small blue-green orb lay in the palm of her hand. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAALlYnaX18s
copyright protection46PENANA8gT0cKwFFY

“The female you were searching for is passed out in the middle tube.” She said as she closed her hand and dropped the orb into her pocket. Trace and Alder pulled the female out of the tube in the other side of the room, Her injuries were extensive, but not fatal. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAK1G2LwfSSe

She, the woman, appeared at the top of the stairs in the next moment. Her voice was light with a sort of manically feigned happiness. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAVupUH8iw4t

“Places to go and people to annoy! Ciao!” With those words she ran out of the cabin. 50Please respect copyright.PENANApFfKECVBE4

“Rid.” Slade stated, and he turned to face his boss.50Please respect copyright.PENANA4p6KsRhHJa
copyright protection46PENANAHJky09PwQa

“Go after her and find out who and what she is.”50Please respect copyright.PENANAWFElAluSSz
copyright protection46PENANAbxDpIV5U88

And so, he ran out of the cabin and after the woman. 50Please respect copyright.PENANAmhfB2TeXvS
