Chapter 7 - DYING BREED
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡowgE8SaARb
Iris sat in front of the mirror, applying a coat of lipgloss. Her hair was in a nice bun, two strands of curled hair framing her face. Her eyes were dark, eyelashes curled and a dark turquoise dress hugged her figure.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRO1xkinwLv
She stepped back, her heels clicking on the bathroom floor and looked at herself in the mirror.
She grabbed her purse, opened the door, and saw Talyn, standing there, in a baggy shirt, shorts, her hair ruffled and sweat running down her face.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBOSyslCltl
Iris raised an eyebrow. "What were you doing?"
"Training," Talyn told her rubbing her stomach. "Will looks so sweet but his kicks hurt."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhRRyv0rGAj
"Thanks!" Will called somewhere from downstairs.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRs8TZsbmYX
Iris tilted her head. "Oh."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSzLL8d6Kzz
"And what're you doing?" Talyn asked, narrowing her eyes.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6RrYpXYRDz
"I'm going on a date with Icarus."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡav1io1KzoJ
Talyn didn't react, didn't look happy for her,. instead she just went, "Oh."
Talyn tried to piss past her into the bathroom but Iris grabbed her arm. "Talyn. Why don't you like him?"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxgji1sv8d5
"He just seems so untrustworthy," Talyn huffed at her. "He's too...smooth..it's weird."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHjW9hm6gdK
Iris rolled her eyes. "What's weird is that you're not happy for me. I've finally found someone I like on this wretched island!"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPnfRGESqeg
"It's our home, Iris," Talyn snapped suddenly. She's never snapped at Iris and Iris released her grip. "Don't call it wretched."
She pushed past Iris into the bathroom and closed the door with a small slam.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaLxu3yWzH9
Iris stared at the door. Talyn had never acted like this before..she was so sweet, normally. She didn't snap or raise her voice.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEotByLXF1a
Iris shook her head and went downstairs, calling out that she was heading out, as Icarus texted her that he was here to pick her up.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpRyFIejAFy
The doorbell rang and Iris opened the door.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRPjojnXgXE
There, was Icarus, standing there, with a bouquet of roses held in his hand, and dressed in a nice black suit.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqC3TdCFahG
Iris felt her face warm. "Oh- Icarus!"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlGxTmg7GRN
He only smiled. "Beautiful roses for a beautiful lady," he said, a grin spreading on his face.
Iris took the roses. "Oh, thank you! Come in, come in, while I go put these in a vase."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeIDy7WW5dT
Icarus stepped inside, closing the door as Iris went to go put the roses in a vase.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJDvNxJpcUH
Diana walked into the kitchen then, and looked at the roses and Iris. "Date?"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSfoq9KGhrx
"Yeah. I'll be home later," Iris said.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4FgHeoEatR
"Oh, wait, hold on- I wanna meet this boy," Diana said, grinning.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4dvA02jqed
"Oh..Okay." The two walked back to where Icarus was and Icarus looked up.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ77svxCgeTH
"Oh, Icarus!" Diana said. "How nice to see you again."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMXn3FBrjMU
"You know each other?" Iris said, confused.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbR7Gr8IKyX
"Yeah, I'm Melanie's son," he added, as he shook hands with Diana.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYG4rcC3sRW
"You're such a sweet boy," Diana told him. "Well, you two have fun. " She hugged Iris. "Be careful!"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9DTwGy88SU
The two said their goodbyes and walked out.

The two sat down at the restaurant, and immediately started clicking.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcW7vk7VuOu
"Okay, okay," Icarus said, his laughter dying down after Iris had just told a joke. "What do you like? Are you like a nerd or something?"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡssc83qdXoB
Iris snickered. "Don't laugh, okay?"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCgNG8frBGF
"Okay, okay," Icarus put his hands up and at Iris's suspicious look, added, " I won't laugh." He leaned forward on his elbows.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3SBboVjjq8
"I am the biggest fan of Harry Potter."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOTA11DsfBQ
"What? Me too!" Icarus broke out laughing again. "What's your house?"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRd7FUgUlRB
Iris smirked proudly. "Gryffindor."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1VtC6SyqbY
Icarus smirked back. "And I'm a Slytherin."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy0R81TLt9n
"Oooooh," Iris said, smiling. "A Gryffindor and a Slytherin, who knew?"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk1AsGuJBQB
"I know right? Slowly falling in love," he added the last part smoothly.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcSwGvDy33K
Iris and him linked hands, looking at each other.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2CLTLMNwgX
Iris felt strangely, calm, and cool, relaxed with him. He made her feel special.

Talyn walked downstairs, in her pajamas, about to get a slice of leftover pizza. She walked down to see the roses placed on the counter, and Diana dipping coffee, leaning against the counter as well. You could hear Will and Clint arguing about who won over a video game upstairs.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZtc9YWq3rn
"Who brought those?" Talyn asked, raising an eyebrows.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqXDzPsJgQV
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjktVnf6Vft
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUeW7nU4OXv
"You don't like him?" Diana asked, frowning.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbnsPWihGy7
"No. He just..sets off this vibe. Like, hes not trustworthy." Talyn sighed. "It's hard to explain. I hate him."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBSs5OQlULA
"We don't hate people, Talyn."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnGPjNdeS1c
"Fine. I very much highly dislike his perfect face. It's too perfect, it's creepy."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡndzQ2w8kcH
Diana nodded . "I suppose. Hes Melanie's son, though. But he's really sweet. "
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrOAUToKeiw
Talyn shrugged, turning her back for a moment.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPGcEZ0ReTT
When she turned back, Diana was gripping the counter tightly, her eyes shut, clenching her jaw.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqg6079xgtK
"Diana?" Talyn looked worried. "Are you al- DIANA!"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYVyyPsWzHf
Diana had suddenly fallen to her knees, a hand on her head, gritting her teeth.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6xVjbVk39d
Talyn sat down beside her, looking at her with concern. "Diana? Are you okay? What's the matter?"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWAt2ABb8RF
"I-Im fine," Diana said quietly, in obvious discomfort. "Just- Just give me a minute.."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSQAropTlZB
Talyn placed a hand on her shoulder, and Diana rested her back against the counter, breathing in and out slowly, a hand still on her head.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB58wpksJnC
Slowly, she calmed down and opened her eyes, looking at Talyn again.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWjcqmN2yVT
"What the hell happened?" Talyn asked her, eyes wide.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdNKNf9d8uc
"It's the Island ..It's getting worse... Something- Something horrible is coming, Talyn..I can feel it..It's going to get here soon.. " Diana looked up at Talyn, who looked fearful and worried.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK5iSCHd4qA
Diana continued. "I just need to rest for a little. I'll be okay. It happens a lot now.."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHnUTOgHQOD
talyn frowned, and helped her up, walking to the couch.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK2ruPGD2P8
Clint and Will suddenly came downstairs, fully clothed, weapons strapped on. "That was Rose, something's going on. Something big," Will said. "We gotta go."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfzexsReFVF
"What happened to Diana?" Clint asked, frowning.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgD3axRqeHf
"She's fine..she just needs to rest. " Talyn turned to Diana. "Look, I'm.fonns call Carina over to watch after you, okay? We gotta go. We'll be back."
Talyn ran upstairs to go get changed.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRshjW7ZAaO
Diana sighed. "Be careful!"

Iris looked at her phone, it was buzzing with texts.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ7XtX3hF9g
Icarus glanced at her phone, raising an eyebrow. "You might wanna answer them. "
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzeytUj6J15
Iris sighed. "I'm really sorry." She glanced at her phone, looking at the messages from Talyn, Will and Clint.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeuvbDFZVYB
They needed her.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbOI9iFczkl
She stood up quickly, knocking over her chair in the process. "I've - I've gotta go," she said quickly, eyes wide. "I'm so sorry. I'll explain later-Sorry-"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPUzonuHtdJ
Icarus also stood up, and frowned, trying to grab her arm, but she jerked away and ran out of the restaurant.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyrd4DRJDMH
She changed into normal clothes, stopping at a gas station bathroom, then called for Talyn to pick her up from there.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeYwW8OCkoX
She saw Talyns motorcycle pull up, and Iris pulled on her helmet, her whip wrapped around her waist. "Let's go."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGeRgCfKkIY
Talyn nodded, and sped off, right behind Will and Clint.

A little girl, no older than 8, looked around, eyes wide and terrefied.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEJB5xu8lns
She watched as people in black suits ran through her home, and began killing her friends and family left and right. She stepped back, a hand on her neck, a deep cut there, trailing all the way down her side and ending at her thigh. Scratched and bruises covered her face.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg1W9JLyJdi
Eyes wide, she looked around, as tears streamed down her face and a million questions ran through her mind.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡucqh1tVHUv
Fires raged around her, but she ran right through them and was left unscathed by the fire. She ran around, calling for her mom. "Menoa!" She called in her language, over and over.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡByfcENHN85
A person in a black suit rushed at her, swinging their blade.
She ducked, "Why?" she asked them, in her broken English and strong accent.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfp6byQX7Aa
"Your people resisted us, this is the punishment," they snapped, slashing again.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp4nQmpjh6e
She dodged again, and suddenly ran around them, eyes wide. She still didn't understand.

Talyn stared at the scene for a moment, eyes wide.
Black suited people, everywhere, killing the people here, terrorizing them. Fires covered the entire place.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVJeH4wBb8f
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI0jySflwma
Almost everyone was dead now.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzCnBEMAUTt
Iris suddenly ran in, her whip out.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuPdIwhf8so
Will turned to Talyn. "Do we kill them?"
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnboHKgW5Mj
Talyn looked troubled. "I.." She got a grip on herself, she slowly nodded and ran out into the scene, pulling up her black mouth mask.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgmVDXzqytj
Will hesitated, and Clint gave his hand a little squeeze, then ran off. Will followed right after.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1X9eGGwWOY
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkcaJUUZR0M
Iris ran up to a girl in black, the suits we're completely black with a red trim, and helmets. She pulled out a blade, which cracked with red electricity.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡag85U6FlE8
Iris took out her whip and her eyes glowed purple, as well as her hands. The whip suddenly lighted with purple electricity, and the two slashed at each other.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFG6OVNurJj
Iris's whip coiled around the blade and she jerked it, sending the blade flying away. She then slashed at the girl, who then fell to the ground, a large slash on her chest. Another one was coming at her from behind. She whipped around and slashed at them with her whip, slashing their throat.

Talyn was shooting people as she ran, when one came up behind her and attempted to choke her with her on bow. Talyns eyes widened, as her hands clutched the bow, keeping it away from her neck, her head tilted back. The girl who was trying to choke her, kept trying, when Talyn suddenly stomped down, hard, on her foot with her heels.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWJY0AwRRAu
The girl yelped, letting the bow go as Talyn slammed her elbow into her nose and felt it shift. She then whipped around, and slammed the bow on top of her head, running off again.

Clint had 2 of them rushing at him. He held out his tiny knife, and marks appeared on his face, glowing blue. The blade charged up with blue, glowing but instead of forming the curved blade with the shield, it was a slightly bigger, sword. This wasn't the one that no one had managed to unlock, however.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP1TaSS6rWs
Wisps of blue snaked around the black blade.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAELIcHk6Vs
He slashed at the two, and sliced their torsos clean, the wound flashing blue before they collapsed.

Will had an entire group around him. He waited, with his knees bent, for them to attack first.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3lHuBg8zaT
Of course, he knew they would underestimate him. In fact, one stepped forward, a smirk seen under his mask and held his arms out wide. "Come on, girly, take your best shot."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrwD9P0T1Xg
Will couldn't help but grin.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9OH2A7QbnH
With unbelievable speed, he rushed forward, sweeping a leg under his, and slitting his throat.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2q3JVFZ4e9
The group rushed at him, and Will laughed. He ducked under their blades ,slashing with speed and swiftness, dodging attacks narrowly.
Soon, the entire group was on the ground, dead.

The girls entire family was dead. She stepped over them quickly, and she saw a group, covered in blood.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxxVXe16SUM
She squinted, watching them, shaking. As they got closer, she saw they had weapons, the girl with the green hair had a bow and The girl with the purple hair had a whipsword.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEYKCD1uPhf
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAL4U8DnepB
She took off. Running off, as fast as she could. She didn't stop.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKX9GVnH1fC
The group stood there for a minute then began running after her.
Her eyes were wide, and she then tripped, landing sprawled on the ground.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOUBywfz04R
Thee boy with the blue sword came running up, but he no longer had the big sword.

The girl scrambled away from him, but he grabbed her arm gently. She flinched, looking up at him.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ62mIoWumUv
"We're here to help," he said.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLtg7bHphQH
"Help" She knew that word. They were here to help her...She thought about it. There was no other way to go, and she was tired of running..
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCCORZtCBIo
She stared at him. "Help me," she said, she repeated it over and over. "Help. Help. Help me."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiPrExPB2cv
"Yes..were here to help," Clint said softly, he pulled her up. She clutched onto his arm, as they began to walk back.

Back at the house, Nanook and Daisy looked up from their craft project as the door opened.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi1f5IHyJLs
Clint stepped in, a little girl hanging onto his arm.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNhaTZS55kZ
She had brown hair in tangled around her face, scratches, and bruises, blood on her clothes and face. She hid behind Clint, gazing untrustingly at Daisy and Nanook.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZkUzpi9BEx
Nanook went right up to her and stuck her hand out. "Hi! I'm Nanook!" She cried, grinning. The girl flinched away, and Nanook frowned.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMXy13hIB0u
"Hang on, Nanook, we've got to get her cleaned up," Iris said gently, rubbing Nanooks head. Nanook nodded, going back to Daisy.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4NLfHK7NQr
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMPMGobZyNE
Talyn grabbed the little girls other hand. "Come on, let's go get you fixed up."

The next day, after the girl had a day of rest, they took her back to the camp , where Nanook and Daisy we're waiting.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHWCcVkhAXG
They had found out her name was Valerie, too.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvyTLTFBIL8
Valerie had been cleaned up and the cut on her neck has been stitched, but it'd forever leave a scar. Her brown hair was tied back in a braid, and she wore a red flannel plaid pattern, jeans and cowboy boots.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM1QTgtJUfj
She stepped in, the camp, hanging onto Clint again. They found that she was very quiet and reserved, and didn't really trust anyone anymore.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuXf79brrMp
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8hX13RHEzs
Nanook brightened when she came in, and made sure not too be too quick in greeting her. She waved and Valerie looked back up at Clint.
"Go ahead," he said to her. "Go make some friends."
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNltDfK7YFm
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh9kxhtJJUw
"mh.."She frowned a little, but released Clint's hand and went to join Nanook and Daisy.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ92N74QYLvy
"What's your name?" Daisy asked her quietly.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeiUHV9s287
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpqhJYzdIj7
"Is that an accent?" Nanook said, grinning. "It's so cool!"
Valeries mouth twitched, and she looked at the crayons they were using to color in wolves and other pictures.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡesa2zfTy0o
"Wanna color with us?" Nanook asked.
10Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7fG1WCbpFk
