The sound of the night is music to anyone's ears, horses trotting by, people greeting and getting on with there lives. Over many years people have been disappering or ended up dieing but no one would ever think that there town also populated by another race, vampires. It all started as a myth, no one not even the police could ever figure it out but once more people are disappering the town had to do somthing instead of living in fear. Thats when the hunters arrived. Determine to destory the vampire race and bring the town back its normal quiet ways, but what they dont know it that some vampires look just like everyone else. What will they do? ------------------- Quiet whimpers were heard from a dark alley, Lily held on to a young woman as she feast on her blood, although still contious the young woman try to claw at Lily's arms but that only make her dig her fangs deeper into the womans neck. "She's a fighter." Mika said as Lily pulled her head back and licked the remaining blood from her lips, "But she didn't fight hard enough." She let the body drop to the ground an quickly left the alley the back way, both Lily and Mika knew that there were vampire hunters in their town and they knew of the other vampires but didn't know how uniqe their all were. Lily's senses were at their highest when they entered a bar with Mika's arm draped over her shoulder, yawning she sat at a booth feeling the eyes of the humans that were there as her sister sat across from her, it was like they had never seen a girl wear a black corset an victorian dress before. Lily ordered a vodka mixer as Mika just got a beer, she slowly looked around the bar, she could see the different aora's of the vampires poseing as human. "Pathetic..." she said to her sister, "If only they could just be who they are and not anyone else." Mika just smiled as she sipped her beer, even though she wanted to be like Lily she was just to much of a tomboy, even for a vampire. Seeing them from afar you could tell they were different. Mika was the only vampire with white hair and wore pants, as Lily wore victorian dresses and had black and red hair but they always dress the same when it came to corsets. "Dont worry sis, we can easily take care of them." Mika said, making Lily giggle. Meanwhile at the outskirts of town a dark figure came walking into town. He had a dark cloack wrapped around his body only reveiling a small part of his face. He walked trough town ignoring everyone that walked passed him. "Foolish humans." He mutterd under his breath. He finaly reached a small bar across the street and enterd it. He took a seat in a corner and orderd a drink, stil not reveiling his face completly. HE couldt see all the aura's of the people around him. It made him sick to see vampire's post as humans to survive. azriel walked down the sidewalk dressed in a black cloak with the hood conceiling his face, bumping into on coming humans without the care in the world. he heared rude comments coming from the humns behind him, but paid no attention to them. their voices faded as azriel continued. the door to the bar opened with a screaching noise and azriel stopped in the doorway. he surveyed the room with his glowing, pale blue eyes and stopped his gaze when he saw lily rose and someone else sitting in a table at the back of the room. his boots made a deep thud as he began to walk into the room, slowly. he made his way to the back, towards lily. when he got closer, he sat down at her table and took off his hood. his bright, white hair reflected some of the candle light from the chandeliers above. his eyes were more visible than his face. "lily, it is so good to see you again." azriel said. "i have brought news to you, of the breuha clan's arrival later on this week." the room got quiet as some of the disguised looked toward azriel's direction without turning their heads. some acted in a fear. "lily, deacon will be arriving to govern this town once again." azriel waited for her response in his message he waited so long to deliver. Mika glanced over at them while she had her head turned to the window, "Damn, I was hoping that this wouldn't happen." Lily said as she took a sip of her drink, Mika was already on her third beer, "At least not yet." Mika mumbled and Lily slapped her arm. "Azriel this is my sister Mika, she just arrived the other night." Lily said, "Mika this is Azriel, he's my informant on things that are going on that we dont know about." Mika bowed her head to Azriel then looked back out the window twirling a strain of her white hair around her finger, it could be seen that they were different but in a way a lot alike. "So what all do we know about them?" Mika finally spoke, "Why is he making his move so soon?" "that i don't know, yet. but my clan has been monitoring them more than i have." azriel turned to mika and acknowledged her bowing. "it is nice to meet you mika." he turned to face mika and continued, "i am not sure if you have heard of the deadmoon clan. they are mostly night vampires. i am their only day walker." "Breuha...." Lassiroth whisperd. He looked up when he heard that name. It was a long time since he met those vampire's, recklessly ignoring the old rules the elders had made to protect them. The waiter walked up to him putting down the drink he orderd and walked away. When he reached out for the drink revealing his hand he noticed that people where looking at him. His hand was old and full of rimples yet he moved it as he was a 20 year old man. When he moved his head around he saw the people quickly minding there own business again. "Hmpff..." He ignored it all and just took a sip of his drink. "Yes I've heard many things about them." Lily said as she gave a sly grin to the waiter that gave her another drink, "On the house." the young man said smiling before he walked away an continued with his job, "Hmm. Anyway, it is good that you and your clan are investigating this. We need to find out as much as we can." Lily said as she sipped her drink. Her sister Mika listen to them talk then got up and sat at the bar, she liked talking bussiness but she can only take so much. "Give me somthing....thick." she said to the bartender, he looked up at her then chuckled, "Coming right up." he said then went to the back. Mika tied her hair back when the old man came back with a glass of blood, she took a sip of it an knew what where it came from, the pet rats that he kept. "Very nice Miles. But dont waste them all on me." Mika smiled. "i have left the rest of my clan to do that. for now i just want to enjoy my time right now. i have been gone for so long." a waiter came over and offered a drink to azriel, in which he told him what he wanted, and the waiter went to get it. azriel then focused his attention back to lily. "so lily... how have you been lately?" "Oh I've been getting by, seeing new faces after being asleep for so long and finally finding my sister." Lily said as she ran her fingers through her hair, "Well actually she found me, some people say that we look alike except for our hair and she's a tomboy. I dont see it." she smiled then finished her drink, "But all in all just trying keep this town "safe" so to speak. Anyway enough about me, how bout you? You seem to have been sussesful all these years." A smile appeard on Lassiroth's face of hearing the Brueha clan arriving. "It seems i chose the right town to visit." he said lifting his head up. A young woman enterd the bar and headed directly towards Lassiroth. "Your accomidations are ready mylord." she said while bowing slightly Lassiroth knodded and the girl walked away again. He stood up and walked towards the exit but stopped when he neared the two vampires. He turned his head towards the two. He looked at them for a moment then walked further and exited the bar. azriel replied to lily, "well... i have been doing good i guess. haven't gotten much sleep though. times outside the city here are rough. this is probably the only 'laxed city i know... which is sad." azriel saw a vampire get up out of the corner of his eye and then stop. azriel turned so that his face was visible from the side and then proceeded to match his eyes with the other who was leaving. he turned back around and looked at lily. "some of these vampires in here look no more that a bunch of novices. i wonder who is turning these people so quickly." Lily sighed as she sat her glass down, "Some of them are novices, I'll admit I've turned a few but only because they felt worthy of helping me." she said as she looked from the corner of her eye at the vampire that had stopped at there table then left. "I've not clue where the rest are coming from." Mika came back to sit by her sister, "Some of them are...."strays" as I call them, travelers and wanderers." she said as she move to sit on her foot. "I think we should go out an see for ourselves as to why Deacon is coming back, I'd rather not see my sister fight him, at least not this soon." Lily glanced at Mika an smiled but it soon faded when a little human boy came running in the bar. "Lily, Mika!" the boy cried trying to catch his breath, "We got a problem, one of the gangs are starting fights with some humans." Once outside he walked trough the street and saw a group of people fighting on some other people. He smiled as he walked towards them. One person of the group turned towards Lassiroth and said:"What do you want old man. Scram if you don't wanna get hurt." "Wanna...get.hurt... It seems i have missed out allot on modern speech." "You say what?" the grunt said to him "Are you sure?" Mika asked as she stood up, the little boy nodded his head, "Yeah its the Hawkeye gang." he said as he followed Mika outside. "Well looks like we have to take care of a few things, care to join us Azriel?" Lily asked as she got and left behind her sister. Once outside Lily saw Mika standing a few feet away from the struggle then walked over as soon as they could, it was a few of what they called an "innocents" that were being attacked by the Hawkeyes. "You say what?" they heard one of the members say to an old man that had stopped their way, "I say back off Jimmy!" Mika said before punching him in the jaw, "Put your weight in your punches, that way you deal more damage." Lily said before kicking another member that came running at her. Both girls took care of the gang within a few minutes, until they ended up running away. "Well looks like we wont be seeing them for a while." Lily laughed as she brushed the dirt off her dress, "Yeah lets hope not." Mika said as she helped the innocents up off the ground, they had said that they were okay and thanked them before leaveing. "Things keep getting odder and odder about these humans." Lily said. azriel followed lily and mika outside the bar. he watched as lily and mika scrambled around, fighting the humans with their fists. and finally, the gang scurried along in pain. azriel looked at lily and said, "have i missed alot? you fight with your hands now?" he was confused because back in the day, they would fight like humans, only with swords and the new firearms. "Such fierce strenght. Impressive young ones." Lassiroth turned towards the two sisters. Lily and Mika Rose i presume?" he said while putting his hood straight. "I was not sure if it was you but now im sertain." They could now directly see his face. Lily giggled as Mika rolled her eyes, "We only fight with our fits when its just a small fight, like the one you just saw." Mika said straightening her jacket, "She's right Azriel, we have our wepons its just we didn't have to use them at the moment." Lily added, "We were just sending a message." Lily turned when she heard a voice, "Such fierce strenght. Impressive young ones." Lassiroth turned towards the two sisters. "Lily and Mika Rose i presume?" he said while putting his hood straight. "I was not sure if it was you but now im certain." "Yes we are Mika and Lily Rose. " Lily said as she got a good look at the man's face, he looked old but had a young man's aora around him, "Who might you be and how do you know our names?" Mika said as she stepped infront of her sister, as a bow suddenly appeared in her hand as she twirled the arrow in the other, Lily stepped back closer to Azriel. She her sister would do anything to protect her even if she was the youngest and more determend. "Yes please speak before my younger sister puts a hole in your head." Lily said as Mika notched the arrow. Azriel stood in between lily and mika. he was also getting ready for another fight, his right hand on the hilt of his dagger. "you better be careful old man. you walk in my territory now." azriel looked up and looked around, pin-pointing where every member of his clan was, crouched on rooftops, ready for a fight as well. "my blood protects me, and i protect it as well. if your not careful, you could end up like those vile humans." "Are you sure that your blood protects you, young one." He puts out his hand revealing a ring with a pentagram on it. "Revelum sabish" he spoke, in an instant there where duplicate's of Lassiroth surounding them. "You three have alot of power i can sence it. Im not here to fight you, but if its a fight you seek i wil not evade it." the four said. Mika hissed when she saw four others of the man apper, "Calm yourself sister." Lily said as she laid her hand on her shoulder. "You know how you get when you dont think before you act. Same with you Azriel." She walked closer to Mika as she came to stand by them both, scanning the copies that were around them. "Look we dont know who you are but we are only protecting whats ours." Lily said trying to reason with the old man, or in this case men. "But if you try to cause any trouble then you'll have to go through us." Lily wanted to keep her good natured imaged up but from where she stood with Azriel and her sister, but things didn't go so well when she reached behind her and grabbed her gun then crossed her arms and gently tapped her gun on her shoulder, while Mika cracked her knuckles as she let her grip go a little on her bow and arrow. If there was gonna be a fight they would be ready, even if they were surrounded. He snapped his fingers and the copy's dissapeared and he lowerd his arm. "Im to tired to do this. Excuse me i need to get something to eat." He said while setting his hood so that people couldt see his face anymore and walked away, he stopped for a second and said:"O and im Lassiroth Gemini the last Malkavian Bloodlord. Nice to meet you." And he walked further away towards a crypt his servant told him that was ready. While entering he heard a sound of a woman struggling. When he enterd his room he saw a woman tied up sitting against his tomb, "Ah dinner has arrived." He quickly grabbed the woman and drank her blood. His skin began to change into a younger form his face turned to normal and his red hair was longer and deeper than ever. He stopped when she was almost dry and released her. "Ah im feeling young again!" Azriel turned to Lily and Mika and said, "Malkavian? i thought they were exterminated long ago. i don't know whether to call him an ally or an enemy? what do you think lily?" Lily continued to watch at Lassiroth dissappered in the distance, "They were exterminated." she said as she put her gun away as Mika shifted from one foot to the other while easing the tention on her bow and put it away, "Looks like he managed to bypass it. And I agree, I dont know if he's an ally or enemy. But until we can find more information, I dont trust him as far as I throw him." she smirked. "Yeah we can continue this discustion maybe another time but right now I gotta find someplace to rest." Mika said as she got a scence that dawn was approching soon, "Unlike you two, some of us have to hide." she added as Lily giggled. "well if its a place you need to stay, why not join me and my clan at our head quarters. its located underneath the cathedral!" azriel was a little anxious to hear what she had to say. the clan never had visitors, since they were like a secret organization. "Oh I dont..." Mika started to say but was cut off by Lily, "Oh that'd be great! Besides our place is further away than the catherdral and I'd rather not have to take off my jacket to cover your head." she smiled, Mika just rolled her eyes. "Thanks Azriel we really appreciate this." Lily said, "Go feed first Mika then we can go. I dont want you turning red on me." Lily then told her were she could go feed without being seen and Mika left as quick as she could. "Its funny that I'm the older sister but she does all the protecting." Lily said smiling then turned to Azriel, "I hope we are not being a burden on you for letting us stay your head quarters, because sometimes we stay out too long at night an cant get home in time." "it is fine with me! the other clan members won't mind either. i think it is time that you met my other blood." he smiled and began to walk in the direction of the cathedral. As Azriel walked over to the cathedral, a bullet wizzed past his ear, making a very distinct whistling sound. "The first one is a warning, the second one won't miss. Don't force me to kill you so quickly...the disappointment would prove great." Azriel spun around to see a very well known vampire slayer a ways away. with a smoking gun in hand, pointed in his direction. I raised the gun to the sky. "I have been looking for you for a long time, Azy. Where have you been, old friend?" azriel turned to look in the distance. he looked back at lily and mika and said, "you better get inside the church. wait for me there." azriel then turned back around and replied, "searching for you of course! where else should i be?" I leapt into the air, disappearing into the shadows of the clouds. I came down, mere inches from Azriel. "Searching for me? I have been in the same place for the last 300 years, do not lie to me. You made me a promise that you would not allow your clan to grow more than 50 strong, if you inducte these two in....do you know how many you will have?" I looked over his shoulder at the two girls who were hissing and bearing their teeth at me. I pushed Azriel aside and smiled at the two as I walked over to them. As I smiled, the moonlight hit my teeth, revealing that I, too, was a vampire. "You know not who you mess with, young ones, I suggest you step into the darkness, the sun will be up very soon." I turned around and faced Azriel again. "Now where were we? Ah yes, we were about to pick up tradition. Forgive me, Azriel, but I can not kill you tonight, yet again. I have a previous engagement with Gauge....you remember him, don't you? I sure hope so, he was one of our great friends growing up. Well, it turns out that he had attacked a young human boy, and you know the slayer's code.....he must pay for his actions." I could see a sign of disgust in Azriel's face. "you fool! my clan has not grown more than 50 members. with you gone, and them coming in, it should be around 46." azriel smirked to piss jeremiah off. "you watch yourself jeremiah. i am not afraid of you. neither is the clan."
