Barker Griffin hated humans. Not out of a sense of entitlement, like many of his fellow Lycans. Nor out of some misguided religious or social belief their existence violated, which was also fairly popular as sources of anti-human sentiment went on in the Holton's Keep. No, his own hatred came from anger, and that anger came from the very natural fear of what humans ultimately were. All forms of government, all Clans and Packs were based on the monopoly of force; what would then happen to every government in the supernatural world when a race as selfish as humans got enough power to rival them? His ancestors had scoffed at the idea, 'Those hairless apes? Overthrow us!?' They might have laughed, But Barker.... their descendants.... are not laughing now.Of course, not all humans are as unstable as the scum that hunted his people, He had met a few 'good' ones over the years but at the end of the day, When cornered, when the going gets tough, They break, they lash out and they hurt.... t
Cas just kept fighting!And bloody well he fought, for that Crusty old bastard Dylan brought wave upon wave of those horrors down upon them, At his rear he could hear that dirty woman laugh maniacally while every now and then, Making off hand jokes about what she did to her last lover.Banner on the other hand, he finally found his rhythm after so many tries, One of which cost him a few fingers, 'Must be used to others fighting for his sake and not the other way round...' Cas decided.He ducked to the left, A horror made of pulsating grey tentacles with 13 different wings of thirteen different colours blitz past him, somehow, Cas knew in his heart of hearts, Dylan was Sandbagging them, 'Cuz there's no way we'd be able to survive these things!' He thought as he slashed at one of it's wings.He didn't know for certain, he wasn't sure how the rules of enhanced and the like worked, but a small part of him, a tiny part of him was sure the only reason he's able to react to the onslaught of
She saw a couple of the fleshy grey ones a few hundred metres to her left..... to Splitter's left that is, a massive pink was approximately 200 metres behind them, barrelling down with murderous intent, it was the size of a radio tower, It's hounded after them with such ferocity that-"Cece?" A mousey voice said, Cecelia jumped."DON'T DO THAT!" Cece snapped at her friend."S-Sorry!" Lucy quickly muttered, "I.... I just wanted to tell you Julie is starting to stir,""Oh.... could you continue to look after her? Sorry, Keeping track with Oculus is a bit more task inducing than I thought!" She said as she rubbed the sid effect the Oculus.Cece was certain the ship was capable of piloting itself, even as it was far away from it's master, her brother Cas, But.... here in the in-between, It's home domain, She could feel faintly, a beastial desire to pulverize their pursuers, worse, she could feel it gradually overtaking her, it took most of her willpower to fight those urges away, 'I need
The Tainted son cursed as his meal darted away, startled by the sound of Hell beasts fighting near a tar pool, He shifted his gaze squarely on his the foolish intruders, A Crimson tailed Scorpio Bat and a Laughing lizard, The draconian horror clamped it's black razor sharp teeth on one of the Bat's membrane wings.The titanic beasts, the bat the size of a horse and the Lizard the size of an elephant rumbled near the noir lake that stretched throughout the Forsaken King's Valley.The Bat gave out a deathly wail as the Scaly beast ripped apart more of it's wing, Blood as black as night spilled from the Bat, in a desperate attempt to escape it's aggressor, The bat used the Crimson stinger at the end of it's purple body to strike the Laughing Lizard.... who fkr it's part simply just laughed!Each time the Tainted son heard the beasts howl in their unnatural sounds of glee, He cringed, it was what he imagined Tasmanian devils would sound like if they *could* laugh, A hoarse, scratching so
She swerved to the left just in time to crush a Hellspawn under her Van, "Cece! Watch it you-" Lucy was saying but Cece simply shook her head."I think it's impossible to be careful under this conditions Kiddo!" She said as she rammed another Hellspawn with the van, The creature clung to the windscreen trying desperately to stab into the vehicle, Cece shook him off with a well timed stop, The creature rolled and came to a stop, It was promptly finished off by Creeper with a gun."But your condition!" Lucy protested."We'll figure something out! I know I'm not right but C'mon! We don't much options here!" She started the engine again and continued on her path to her brother."I hope.... you know what you're doing...." Lucy muttered."That's the thing kiddo.... I totally don't!" Cece cackled as she ran over another Hellspawn, It gave a rather satisfying CRUNCH as it's head was reduced to a bloody pulp.From the corner of her eye, she saw Lucy's face turn pale, "look kiddo-""Get down!"
He knew something was wrong the moment he heard the music.....It was soft, it was on the Angelic side whilst having a twinge of darker themes, A mix between Soul and Gospel rock, Cas heard it, So did Sally and Banner from the looks of it.Their men seemed confused as well as many of them looked around fir the source of the music but nothing, It had no source nor direction, As though.... "It's all in our head...." Cas muttered."What?" Sally snapped, Glaring at Cas, "What are you on about?""He's saying the song is all in our head, I think that's mighty obvious Missy," Banner spoke.Sally gave him the most blood curdling glare Cas had ever seen in his life.... well not really, He'd seen far scarier things on his journey so far, but there was something shouting the mundane human giving such an unnatural glare that sent chills down his spine."I'm not anyone's missy! The next time you call me that-""What are they doing?" Cas interrupted pointing at the Saints.The small party seemed be
The ceremony had always been a big event in our town. While the youth turned 18 on different days and received their divine blessing, they first revealed it to others during the Ceremony of Revelation. It had been a custom for many families to actually never call forth the summon before the Ceremony, while others would only call it in private chambers away from curious eyes.And so one week before the big event the town began preparing. Craftsmen erected a stage in the middle of the town square with a pyramid on which the young adult would stand and reveal what the soul formed from the godly power it was bestowed with. It was most common to find people being able to summon tools of their craft if they already had set foot on that path. Be it a sword, a pen filled with unlimited ink or a farming tool, the townsfolk usually tried to teach their children in ways that they would manifest what would help them in the family business. Well, except some of the scholars, they usually tried the
Cece thought hard about the events of the past hour as she set a course to her brother's location, Lucy, Julie and their new Friend Creeper sat beside her in the White van they had secured during their mission, they split up from Julie's crew, the rest of her people kept their new bases secure, as well as hunted for any more working vehicles in the area.Coco sat on Lucy's lap, The Little ball of fur played with The mousey girl's hand as she tried to give her belly rubs.In the back of the Van in a glassy container sat Creeper's prisoner, Belfast, The creepy little Abomination squirmed with displeasure as he eyed his surroundings menacingly, J.J eyed him back, Snarling at the Spectral Creature.Cece didn't quite know why she was so..... jittery, She stared the Car as best she could through the ruined city, trying her best not to go there.... go to the dark corners of her mind, The ones that showed her images of her brother in a tortured state or even worse.... 'No.... Cas isnt dead,
"BANNER!" Cas yelled, a little louder than he expected.... didn't matter, "We need to talk, NOW!" He added.The gathering went silent now, all eyes on him as he strode towards the bewildered giant, "Is there an issue my boy?" Banner asked, his tone slightly irritated despite the gentle look on his face.Cas muttered one word, "Thatch...." he had never seen such flurry of emotion take over a man, First confusion, then realization, next was fear, then..... hate, 'Right.... the Golden bastard screwed over his ancestors centuries ago,' Cas recalled the brief talk they had about Zebediah Thatch inside Dark Circus.Banner turned towards one of his subordinates, "Tend to the flames.... do not charr them!" He warned, The poor fella's face turned pale but he nodded vigorously as he took over the grill.Banner gestured and the two men made their way to a secluded area, From the corner of his eye, Cas noticed Sally get up and stride towards them, "Wait! What's this about!" She yelled, they didn'
