I turned the pot of boiling water off, and I was mystified by the strange silence that filled the room. The TV was off, the shower was off.
I walked into the livingroom, and Lazareth was gone. He wasn't in the bathroom, or in his room. Something was wrong. I quickly changed into a hoodie and leggings. I then ran out of the hotel room and to the lobby.
I walked over to the doorman. "Have you seen a man in a leather jacket?" I asked.
"Yes, he went outside."
"Thanks." I said, and I walked over to the door.
"You're not welcome." the doorman said, and a green opalescent light appeared. It slithered through the door handles. I tried too push the door open, but it wouldn't budge.
"Who are you?" I asked.
"I'm Evan. I work for Vampirial, otherwise known as the Vampire Royal Family." Evan said, and his nose shifted into a long snout, and a werewolf stood before me. Drool dripped from the fangs that curled through his bottom lip.
I ran, and I glanced at my hand, which was slowly transforming into long talons. I swung at the air, and a purple vortex appeared. Evan backed up, but the vortex forced him back into human.
"How did you do that?" he asked curtly, not accepting his defeat very well.
"I don't know, I just slashed at the air." I said, as the purple vortex withered into the air.
"You summoned a portal from the Underworld!" Evan exclaimed," I'm sorry, I have no choice."
"No choice to do what?" I asked.
"I have no choice but to surrender you to the Vampire Royal Family." Evan said, as he transformed back into a werewolf.
"You're not taking me anywhere!" I yelled.
I swung my talons in the air, three vortexes appeared, and Evan was forced back into a human. He quickly pulled his tooth out, and it transformed into a long blade. He slashed at the vortexes, and they dissected into two pieces, and withered into the air.
His sword cut into the air. Snow and debris submerged with it, and quickly pepilated towards me. I extended my hand. Red balls of fire appeared in my hands, and I threw them at the door.
A green light filled the room, and a gust of wind forced us back.
"What did you do?" he asked.
"What do you mean?" I asked.
"That light is going to send us back in time, and we can only get out by Vampirial."
"Okay, so what."
"The gates of Vampirial are closed forever." he replied.
"I got this." I said pretentiously. Just before the light touched us, I slashed at the air once more, and a small ball of light apppeared. The ball consumed the green, opalescnet light and the ball expanded. Then the ball of light withered into the air.
"Now I have no choice." Evan said. A red light engulfed his hand, and cuffs appeared on my hands. Tightening as Evan made a fist with his hands.
"Why are you doing this, and where is Lazareth?" I asked.
"Lena took him, he's under a sleeping curse." Evan repiled.
We walked into the cold air, and Evan took a feather out of his pocket. He threw it in the air, and it transformed into a large eagle. He threw me on top of it, and followed me.
"To the Royal Castle." he commaneded, and the bird flew, guided by the midnight moon.
I woke up in a dungeon, steel walls surounded me, and handcuffs chained me to a wooden bench.
"Where am I?" I asked myself. My voice echoed in the small room. I don't know where I am, and I don't care, but I know that I can't stay long.
I pulled at the chains that engulfed my hands. Looking at the top of the cuffs, I noticed that they were slowly beginning to rust and lose their color.
The cuffs bacme warmer, as the dust slowly ate away at the metal. It slowly rusted away, and small shreds of metal flew in the air, until nothing was left but my bare hands.
I rubbed my hands on the wall. It began to dematerialize and wither into the air. Was it that easy to escape from this prison? I asked my self, as I stared at the large gap in the wall.
"I might be able to make skeletons with my necromancer powers." I told myself, as I clenched a fist. Walking over to the wall, I stared down at the ground. It was a mere smidget from where I stood, a good three hundred feet.
Sweat furiously beat down my forehead, as I tried my best to issue a skeleton from thin air. There was a loud pound on my cell door.
"Come so I can give you your food!" the guard yelled.
I was quickly running out of options. The cell door opened with a clatter. If I left now, I may be able to find Tyreese and run away. I heard the guard's feet clank on the hard, dusty floor. Looking back at the cell once more, I jumped out the window.
My clothes whipped in the wind, and glides of wind swept through my hair. In a matter of srconds I would be on the ground.
I willed myself to create a skeletal bird. I closed my eyes. The image defiled my mind. The albatrosses black wings were shrouded by darkness, and withered away in the air. I opened my eyes, and watched as the majestic bird procreated in the air. I grabbed onto it, and I climbed on it's back.
I stared at the large white castle, and softly landed on the ground. The gates surrounded the castle began to close. Should I save Tyreese, or myself. Now was not the time for cliche bullshit. I stared out at the gates. There was a strange platform that surrounded it. Was that... Vampirial? That way, I could become part of the Royal Family, and save Tyreese.
My feet kicked back the water on the wet blades of grass. The moon casted a pale glow on the grassy meadow. The gates were slowly closing, and I quickly ran towards them. I looked back at the castle. Nadiya and Greybaum were charging towards me.
My hands were engulfed by a green opalescent light. I pointed them towards them, and it issued a beam of light at them. They froze in their steps. Petrified by the light.
I turned around and ran towards the gates. More soldiers swarmed from the castle. Rubbing my hands against the gates, I watched as a hole formulated.
"Freeze, stay where you are, or we will be forced to shoot!" a guard yelled. Opalescnet lights shined on my face, as if I was a criminal. Suddenly, darkness issued from the wall, and I was shrouded in a cocoon of pitch blal.
Then I plunged. Plunged into the unknown depths of Vampirial.
