Under the Double Star - Chapter One


     Earth was no longer the same. Many things have changed when demons come. They called themselves vampires, but they were not like those from fairytales that tell of bad children. These were much more perfect and most of them were stylish. They had their own societies. Unlike their predecessors they could walk freely, not only at night but during the day without fear of daylight.

     They were much stronger than before and they were not afraid of anything. They sowed darkness and there was nobody to stop them. People also have changed after their appearance. Their blood was contaminated and they were demons waiting to be awakened. If they drinking blood or be bitten by a vampire they become like them. Sounds ugly and sinister, but it’s the truth as painful to be.

     The world no longer belonged to the people although they still don’t know it. All lived in a delusion without being aware of it. They served and interacted with the demons and they were not even aware of it.

     Over time, things began to change in the vampire community. Some became merciful and compassionate towards people. They neglect their own evil nature to help others ‘inferior’ creatures, as they called them. This is considered treason, and every ‘repentant’ vampire was persecuted and executed as a traitor. The power began increasingly to tempt and crazy demons. They are killing each other not only thirsty for blood, but for unlimited power. In all this chaos there was another change that had great importance for the developments. As already mentioned the ‘good’ vampires were persecuted. But with time and this has changed. From the victims they have become hunters. They began to pursue his fellows and to liquidate them for the benefit of mankind, to which they no longer belonged.

    Sounds strange and illogical, but this is exactly what happened. Among leaders, or rather the greatest of them also joined ‘The good’ thanks to one of his trusted soldiers. The name of this leader was Kamael. He looked like a boy, but behind this innocent mask hid quite old and powerful vampire. He along with his General Gabriel learned to not kill the already suffering population and to protect them. It was not easy because the number of demons grew with each passing day. There was no day on which any echoes ringing of funeral bells. Every day a family lost dear one who later became a ruthless executioner.

     You can be sure that my words are true because I was there and I’m still after so many years. And I like many others I was doomed on eternal life, but unlike them I chose to live as a drifter. Browsing the world killing my own kind. I became an assassin, as people say. Only that I was not looking for payment. Reached me to know that I can avenge the curse on those who threw it to me.

    My name was Tamara and I will tell you about my live and the world in which I lived. World whose future depends on who will prevail.


     Darkville, 1927

     My name is Tamara and I lived in Darkville in since I was birth. I live with my family in small house in outskirts. My father, Idoru, worked as a blacksmith and my mother Damira cared about me and my sister Mireya. Everything was seemingly was calm and we are not worried about anything. Unlike people in big cities, people here were very polite no matter where the class originated.  They do not care whether it’s a simple railway worker or an important official in the municipality. For most people this would have seemed perfectly straight, but not for those who wanted to know why.

     I was not one of those people… at least initially. I live carefree, caring for our small house and pets which my parents have. All around was wonderful. In spring and summer the meadows were covered with fragrant flowers and in winter all was like jeweled infinite field. The lakes were like mirrors, frosted rivers created the illusion of a prisoner who at any moment will break the ice chains and galloped pell-mell rushes into the endless expanse. This was my home. Beautiful and unforgettable. Whoever saw it again never wanted to leave it.

     But most impressive was the great mansion outside of town. It was old but still obvious subtle and indescribable brilliance. Often I sit on the lawn and stare at it. I imagined scores, which were organized there. People dressed in beautiful and elegant clothes, great music and the sound of shoes that barely touch the polished floor in the rhythm of waltz. For hours I dreamed, watching this never-fading beauty.

     Soon, however, in the city came new rulers and people’s lives change. Apparently the new mayor does not care what happens to people. He was a cruel and arrogant man. But the most frightening in him was the cold and cruel eyes, they pierce like ice as they look.

     Since he appears to have started happening strange events. Cattle extinction, people too. Darkville was filled with sorrow. Residents not only lost their jobs but also their lives. Every day I heard the sound of funeral bells. I didn’t understand what was happening. The parents no longer let their children to go outside, because we wore various rumors. Rumors that in the city roam creatures whose suck people’s lives. They accusing them and livestock diseases have befallen.

     Once in secret I got out of the house and went to admire on the old mansion. Then I saw that it was no longer uninhabited. There were people that I saw and I think that they were quite special. Unlike the other they do not obey the mayor Zatorius. I would even say that they were his enemies.

     When I came home, one of the mayor’s guards attacked me. He looked very strange. His eyes were red and his teeth were longer and more acute. He grabbed me and stuck his teeth into my neck. I felt pain because he sucked my blood and life. The latter forces I succeeded to breaking free from him and fled. I ran to the field where I went to see the mansion. Soon, however, I remained without power and the blood ran down my neck. I pressed it by hand, but it would benefit greatly from this. Once I found myself among the field of flowers I fell on the grass. I say goodbye to life when I saw shadows with my almost close eyes. They raised me, but I don’t know who were or what was they wanted, because I lost consciousness.

    At one time I started to hear voices talking to me. Then one of them gave me to drink something strange. Drink that I was not field until now. It was blood. I heard one of them to say that this is the only way to save me. And I’m disgusted, but I did not force them to stop pouring the liquid into my mouth. Then again fainted.

     I do not wake a long time. And when I opened my eyes I saw that I was in an unfamiliar place. Actually I had seen so many times. I was at the mansion, which so loved to watch. I was alone in a large room with large windows with silk curtains. The whole room was lit by the morning sun. My confusion was logical given recent events.

     I got out of bed, but I falter and I grabbed a wooden board on the bed. I saw that I was wearing a beautiful white silk gown. I didn’t understand what was happening and the special feeling I felt. I decided to see what happens, especially what was happen.

     I left the room and found myself in a large hall which was decorated with all kinds of beautiful objects and pictures. I went forward with some hesitation. At first I do not met anyone, but then that changed. From behind me came a boy. He looked at my age. He came up to me and smiled.

-Are you better now?
-Where am I?
-In my house. I’m Kamael, and this is my mansion.
-Forgive me. How long am I here, sir?
-One week. Soon you will be fine and will more secure in your actions.
-I don’t understand.
-The man who bites you is already dead. It is better if you go too.
-I thought it was just a bad dream. And what gave me to drink…
-My blood. Now you’re one of us.
-What am I?
-Jesus! I… What will I do now? How will I get home? I am… monster.
-Not all of us are monsters.
-Why saved me?
-Because otherwise, or would be dead, or one of the people of Zatorius would make you evil.
-You bring me my life. Thank you. I will do anything you want. I will serve you faithfully… my Master.

     Everything happened so fast that I could not fully realize. Until yesterday I was happy and cheerful girl, and now I was a demon. But that was not the most special. I don’t know the hate, and now it tears me like a knife. I hated vampires. I thirst for revenge. Of course, I do not hate all of them. However, exactly I was saved by a vampire. Kamael and his men had helped me and I swore to them in loyalty. But I would not deal until I do not destroy Zatorius and his murderers. They would pay for my fraudulent and deprived youth.


     In the village was rumored for my disappearance, but hardly anyone knew the truth. They just a guess, that I have been kidnapped by those who stole many cattle from the people. My parents were mourners, because they knew nothing about me and God knows what went through in their head.

     The mayor was also very worried because he didn’t know what happened to me after one of his men had bitten me. He was worried about I can come back and revealed him to everyone. And how else? We lived in such times, which still burned witches at the stake, and the demons – they hunted like a wild animals. And if people are going to find the truth about the world we live they would begin persecution. Not that I would be sorry for the damned creatures, but I had my reasons. For starters, I was one of them just like my Master which give me a new life. And if they killed all my enemies, to whom I would take revenge? No. the slaughter of vampires had to be an inside job, I mean our job. Only between clans.


     So I lived in the old mansion. With the time I was changed. Thanks to Kamael and Gabriel become a warrior, from whom the demons had to fear. Gabriel was the most loyal man of my Master. They were always together and he shares it only with him. At first I felt neglected for that Kamael prefers to communicate only with Gabriel, but then I truce with that.

     Several years have passed since I woke up in the house of my master. The whole time I was learning to kill, to live with hatred of vampires. Yet I was not evil. I don’t drink human blood, for a demon this was not so easy. But thanks to the training I could learn to control myself. And not only the evil nature, but also my emotions at all. I forgot what was to be weak and helpless. I forgot what was to be smiled and to enjoy of life. I became cold and almost numb.

      One day I decided for my life. Long time I was hesitates, but then I went to Kamael and Gabriel. They were in the gallery, as my master called it. I went inside and bowed. The good manners were part of the learning process.

-Excuse me that I interrupted you, Master.
-What is it, Tamara? – Gabriel asked.
-I took the decision and I thought it was appropriate to discuss with you.
-Speak, dear.
-I decided to leave, my lord. I’ll walk around the lands of Zatorius and I will destroy his… things. I will avenge him for that they caused me. But you don’t doubt in my loyalty. I swore to serve you and I will do it.
-I understand. Do it when you want it. But Gabriel will go to observe you. At least initially, while you adapting to the world outside the mansion.
-And who will keep you safe? I cannot live if someone hurt you.
-This is not a problem for me. Now you can go is you solve it, but Gabriel is coming with you.
-As you wish, my lord.

      I went out and went to my room. I did not take any clothes except those with which I was and a raincoat. For this I took two guns and sword. And some other small things but do not fall into detail. Not that I had anything against Gabriel. On the contrary. I would say even that I have a weakness for him, but I don’t need from babysitter. On the other hand we can spend more time together and I’d know him better. In my whole new life that was the only thing I could not change. I could not draw my love I could give. I realized that this is weakness, but I was powerless to fight with it. But it’s hardly going to prevent me because hardly someone will fall in love with someone like me. Even if people don’t know what I’m, they could read in my eyes coldness typical only for a demon. This plagued me, but it was a fact that I could not deny.

     When I finished with the packing my luggage, I went out. There waiting for me Gabriel. It was night and it was nice, because people would not see us. They could not see me.

     We passed completely unnoticed in the city, and those that saw us did not live to tell. I applied the lessons that I received and I did it pretty well. And I do not say it to boast, but because my teacher admitted it. We way out of fingers, as they say.

     We left Darkville and went to Tansville, where was the headquarters of Zatorius. At least we had such data. On the road we found car with which to move forward. I’m not driving, because Gabriel deemed unnecessary to do so. But I don’t think that was the reason. For this he does give me much responsibility. He ordered me to watch for vampires and if I notice any of the Evil to liquidate him.

It’s boring when someone to hang your head and tells you what to do. That was my attitude now. By the time I convened. To be completely honest to say that I learned a lot of the general. The work was there that I did not know the story of the disintegration of the Demonic Union. Lord Kamael did not consider it necessary to tell me that and I accept it. Gradually, however, my curiosity grew and I wanted to know why I became a mercenary. And when I did my work as appropriate for you to know was why.

     I knew that if I ask Gabriel, he would hardly say. However, he was a fiduciary of the Lord, but nothing prevents to try.

     We traveled quite a while. After several hours we had to stop to recharge and relax a little. We left the car in an alley and went into a pub to eat (unlike our predecessors, we could eat and regular human food, but in certain quantities).

     We sat at the final table and ordered the specialties. When they brought it and we paid because we wanted to send the waiter. The moment came and I decided to act without any subterfuge.

-Tell me what happened.
-With what?
-Why split the Union? The struggle between Good and Evil. You turned me into a killer for some reason and I want to know why. You hid me long enough and I was preparing for war without telling me the truth. I want it.
-I agree with that. I’ll tell you the story, but not now. There are too many curious onlookers. Once we set off I will tell you.
-May not lie to me, Gabriel.
-Trust me. Kamael and I insist on you because you are our creation, and not just talk about the blood.
-I know. Be as you say. You’re the boss here, but be aware. I have only one master and this is Kamael.
-That’s right. Let’s eat now.
-I must tell you something and I do not think you’ll like it.
-Talk then.
-There, in the corner, is a red-haired man who does not eyed off you. I do not trust him. And the weapon, which is headed now.
-I know who he is. Vampire hunter. He haunted me for quite some time, although he himself is a vampire.
-So he is something like us. But do not imagine that he will kill you. Kamael sent you with me or me with you, but this is irrelevant. Now I will watch over you. But…
-What is it?
-Kamael misses me. His presence gave me comfort and respect that no one else can. Maybe it’s because that is pretty powerful.
-I know what you mean, Tamara.
-No affected. I keep a lot of you and I will not let him get closer to you. Now let we get out of here.

     We rose from the table and slowly moved out of the place. He followed us with his intention to shoot. Will not happen. He does not know me and does not know how much I care for my masters.

     Sounds silly to call them so, but I felt that way. I keep them because they not only saved me when I needed it. They raised me as one of them. They were closer to me even my own family. I abandoned them (my real family). There were rumors that they think that I am dead or just kidnapped. Clearly had no idea what is going on in our city. I wonder whether to be happy for them or make them sorry. Ignorance in such times is a pretty good choice. Otherwise things will get worse. They will begin persecution and reprisals. Many people will die, even innocent. In these wars there are always have innocent victims. It’s sad but true. This is something inevitable and how much I wish I could not prevent it.

     We walked fast, because the man followed us continually. We got into the car and drove off at full speed. The red-haired man shoots at us, but only managed to hit me in the arm while I return on the fire. This was my first real wound. Really hurt a lot. I took rag and tight my wound. Gabriel made only one look at me and nothing more. Continued to drive without talking. I was not surprised at all because he was already accustomed.

     Gradually I began to pale and lose strength. It was normal reaction to a gunshot wound. I had to drink blood to recover. But in any situation I cannot hurt human. Fortunately for vampires like me had an alternative – animal blood. But some I did not see many animals here.

     A few kilometers up the road were a farm. Gabriel stopped there and knocks on the door. When the owner came, Gabriel told him something and he got scared and started to go inside but the lord took him by the shirt and pulled him to himself. As far as I understand, Gabriel asked him for little animal blood. And this time I was lucky because it turned out that the same day the man had killed one of his animals. He gave him blood in a flask and asked him to go. There was not more to look there and fulfilled his request. Gabriel returned to the car and drove off again. Along the way I took half the blood in the flask and let the rest of my companion. At first he did not want to drink, but then swallowed it to gather strength. And we definitely would need it in the battle that we will have soon.


     Kamael and his men still stood in the mansion, but it would not last long because he had the intention to join us. Perhaps the reason was that he and Gabriel had a strong relationship. Don’t get me wrong and both were completely “normal”. Just had an explanation for this. I’ll explain. When a person is turned into a vampire, he or she builds a strong and unusual relationship with his maker. I felt exactly the same to the Kamael and Gabriel. This is something that would be difficult to explain, but I’ll try to make it clear enough to those who find this relationship for strange.

     The relationship between a vampire and his maker is very strong. It is something of a parent-child relationship. It is based primarily on blood relationship, but there are other things that are important. For example, a strong friendship and sincerity. If I say “love” it sounded very strange, but that is not really there. This love between friends and relatives. There is nothing vicious as most mortals think. I speak so because I myself experienced it to such an extent that would give my life for them without thinking. This is true, not only because they were my makers, but also dear friends of my heart. So keep me out in the most proper way.

     So in essence. Kamael was already determined to follow us, despite the danger that threatened him at the moment. Zatorius was not the only one who pursued him. Red-haired hunter was also a threat. The bad thing was that I could not help him. Realistically it is very stupid act, but it is quite logical. He held us in his own way, and was stronger than us. On the other hand I was very glad that we will be together again. Unfortunately there was something I would have come in more. And that was that he would bring with him my little sister Mireya.


     Me and Gabriel still traveling. I felt much better and stronger. But I was a little sad. I do not explain to myself. For many years I had not experienced anything like it, but now something was happening to me. I looked distracted and my partner saw it. I think that he do not like it.

-What is it?
-Do not come out with this trick.
-The truth is that I do not know. Something inside me harassment and tortured without knowing why. Like a hurricane of emotions I was dragging and I cannot get away. I want to stop it. In this moment I would ask you to shoot me.
-This is bullshit. If anything is bothering you just tell me. We known each other long enough to have secrets.
-It’s true, Gabriel. I have only one secret from you, but I could not tell it to you. To Kamael you, but you… Forgive me for this.

     He does not like it and I knew it. For some reason he felt neglected. I did not want to feel in that way, but I could not tell him that I have feeling for him. For a vampire is weakness although this does not happen for the first time. Too long I’m trying to get to the level at which I now cannot allow such nonsense to ruin everything.

     We traveled several hours to Tansville. Throughout none of us said anything. After what I said to him, he was absolutely right to be angry with me. But this should not affect our work because the life of many people depends on us. We did not have to allow even less because of personal conflicts.

     But both of us did not expect the surprise we received when we arrived at the “battlefield”. Just arrived and there waiting for us  master  Kamael. For the first time I was glad to see him from whole my soul (well, figuratively speaking, this was because demons have no souls). Of course, I neither do nor rushed to embrace him or something. I just looked at him and smile expressed my satisfaction. Kamael greeted us in his own “den”. Actually it was quite sophisticated and elegant place. Just when I thought the surprises end here, my master said something that makes me to freeze on my place.

-I have a surprise for you, my dear.
-Really? What… surprise?

     What I saw filled me with mixed feelings. I did not know whether to cry or be angry. There was my younger sister, Mireya. I did not know why she was here, but I did not think that this is right.

-What does this mean?
-Sister!!! I’m so glad to see you. I thought you were dead. Why do not tell us you’re alive and better?

    She hugged me with such affection that my cold heart feels pain. I just stood with eyes stuck in the ground, tears streaming down my pale cheeks.

-I could not say something that is not true.
-What do you mean, Tamara?
-I am no longer the same. I guess that my master did not tell you. I am not alive and I’m not a human. When I disappeared… I became a… demon. I was almost dead when this people bring me here and give me new live. Now I’m just a mercenary without a soul.
-But you have feelings and you cannot hide it from me. Remember? You never did learn to hide nothing from me. And now, although you are demon… this is you.
-I… That’s right. My lord, may I talk to you about something I cannot hide from you?
-Of course, darling! Come with me.

     I followed him into his room. We were alone behind the thick walls. Kamael poured cup of tea and looked at me.

-Okay. There is something I cannot explain, but I have feelings for Gabriel and this is not good. I cannot work with him in this situation.
-I think that this is much better. He knows about this?
-Of course not. I told him that I only have a secret from him and that I can share it with you. I do not think he would like to know about this weakness.
In one single moment I felt something very strange. Something that sprang from Kamael. Basically I cannot say that comes from his soul, because everyone knows that vampires are not available. But his blood runs in my veins and I felt that he was not the person as I have thought for so many years. I could not prove it, but the feeling that helped me to peer into the souls of others has never been wrong and I did not think it does now.

-Sorry to bother you with nonsense, Kamael. I will go for a walk and clears my mind of all these shenanigans.
-If this make you calm down…

     I left the room and started to leave the Master’s house. Then I saw my sister and Gabriel to talk very friendly. They also noticed me but did not say anything. For this I just get out.

     I walked around the streets and I was ready for everything. I knew that despite universal deceit there are those who knew about vampires. They were so pathetic that I loathe calling them people. I’ll explain why. All inhabitants of this world, i.e. people carry in their blood gene of demon. They are like non-evolved vampires. That killed us, to drink from our blood to gain eternal life.

     I’m not saying that I’m afraid of them because this is not true. In the years of training I erased that feeling from my heart and mind. I have other feelings, but not this. I do my best to remove it first.

So… I walked through the deserted streets and watched passersby around me. They hardly knew what I am and so was the best… for them. Then I heard the noise of battle. It was a great distance, but this is one of the advantages to be a vampire, can hear and see on hundreds of miles away. I walked quickly towards it and not long ago I found myself in the place. A group of people had made an ambush of a vampire. I was hiding in the shadows to see what happens. At first thought the boy was Evil, but he was not. Just had fallen on those who wanted immortality. There was no doubt what to do.

-Give us to drink from your blood, boy. You cannot get out. It’s better to surrender. No one to help you. – Said one of the attackers.

    Then I came out of the shadows with a sword in one hand and a gun in the other. I would punish those who dare to attack my kind.

-You wrong, loser. Now you’ll get what you deserve.

     They walked towards me with knives in their hands trying to punch me and drink my blood. The red flame came into my eyes and my teeth are lengthened. I was faster than them and soon they were lying dead in the dirt in a puddle of his own blood. Then I return to my normal appearance and approached the boy who was on my age or slightly older than me.

-Are you okay?
-Yes. I could handle himself, but thanks.
-I know. This was my first murder and I think I did it well. Kamael and Gabriel would be proud of me.
-Gabriel? You know him?
-Of course. From long time. I can tell you if you want.
-Sorry. I’m Tamara. You?
-Do you know Gabriel?
-Yes. We are friends, but I have not seen him for a long time. Now tell me.

     We sat on a staircase and I told him my story. How were attacked and how my two masters have given me of their blood to save me. And only now I realized that I do not know the reason to do that. They could just let me to finish my life as many other victims, but they did not. They saved me.

-Yes. As far as I know Gabriel this is in his style. He sympathizes with the humans, but for Kamael I did not know. He does nothing that is not helpful.
-You’re right. Can I share something? I do not know why, but I think I can trust you.
-Tell me.
-For some time now I feel that Kamael has changed. Like goodness, which shows irritating him. Seemed to hate me, but he is nice to me, because something forcing him.
-Why do you think so?
-Today I revealed my secret, which I have kept a long time. Keep it because I think that it is weakness that will hinder me. And he looked at me with expressionless eyes and angry inside.
-What is the secret? If you want to tell me…
-Okay, but please do not tell to Gabriel.
-I told him that I have feelings for Gabriel. I do not know when and how they are raised, but I cannot remove them. Believe me I tried.
-I understand. Gabriel has the ability to attract others to himself.
-Do you want to go to him?
-Yes. Long been looking for him.

     Stefan and I went to the home of Kamael. We walked quietly, when in front us stood the Red-haired hunter. He pointed his gun at us, but I’m not flinching in front of the danger.

-Look what we have… The Red-haired hunter who shot me and tried to kill Gabriel. How nice that you come… What do you want from me? To kill me, perhaps?
-Tell me where is Gabriel?
-Wait a minute. Let’s start over. My name is Tamara and this is Stefan. Who are you?
-My name is Liam. Now talk, vampire.
-Sorry, hunter. I do not used to give my loves ones, especially if they have saved my life without a cause.
-I have not wasting time with nonsense.
-For me it was not nonsense when one of the people of Zatorius… attacked me and turned me in this. Gabriel and Kamael gave me only their blood. But you know what? For you we are just animals and ruthless killers. Now, if you will kill us… do it, if not – let us go before Kamael to piss off.
-So, he is not so good.
-None of your business, but I have some suspicions about him.
-Interesting. Let’s talk about it.
-Tamara? – Stefan interjected.
-Better, redheaded. Tomorrow at midnight on the clock tower.
-I will be there.

     Me and Stefan went to the house of the lord undisturbed. Before I returning with the impatience and joy, but now my mind was full of doubts. Something made me not believe in the words of Kamael. I had the feeling that he hates me for something and I do not know why. Or maybe not. He changed from the moment I revealed my feelings to Gabriel. Maybe he expects to betray him or just felt a kind of jealousy. But why? After all, Kamael sent Gabriel to me. Why? I didn’t know the answer.


     We went inside and his men watched with their eyes. I did not know whether the cause is the presence of Stefan or mine. I did not intend to do this right now. We found Kamael and Gabriel in the dining room where they discussing something.

-Are we interrupting you? Because you have visit, Gabriel.
-Stefan?! What are you doing here?
-I was looking for you, Gabriel. Someone attacked me and Tamara helped me. Eliminate the attackers so easy.

     This seemed to hit Kamael, but he does not say anything.

-Maybe they were Zatorius’s men. He loses. Now, excuse me. I’m going to relax. I will ask to fix the guest room.
-Yes, Tamara. We have to be good hosts. – My master said.

     I left the room with the conviction that I am right in theory. The man who worshiped was my enemy. This blow was severe, but not incurable. Once shunned past I would easily take care of it.

     Unfortunately, the past or at least part of it ever went after me. In the corridor I met my sister Mireya. I grabbed her hand and then led her behind. I pulled her in my room and shut the door.

-What is it, Tamara? Why do you act so strange?
-Do not trust to Kamael.
-But why? He is Good, right?
-Maybe. Do not trust him. Any changes including him. I know him and I’m sure that he is not the same Kamael a few days ago. Trust me. I know what I speak.
-You know that I trust you unreservedly.
-I want to ask you something.
-How are… mom and dad?
-They… died several months after you disappeared. They could not bear it. And I swore to find you.
-You were alone? So long?
-Yes. Well, it was not so bad.
-Okay. This is the past. Now you are here and I will protect you. I will not let you hurt. Never.
-I know, sis.
-Now go to bed.

     She lay on my bed and slept. But I could not. For this I sat on a chair by the window and looked outside. The things that I know are changing too fast. For that I was thinking what I would do in the future. However, now I had to guard my younger sister. The situation becomes very complicated. And my meeting with Liam… Whether he would help me to reveal the truth or he would kill me as another vampire. Too many questions that needed answers.

     I just started to fell asleep when someone knocks to my door. I got up and opened. I went outside and closed the door because I do not want to wake up my sister. And there Gabriel waiting for me. I was surprised to see him. I thought my “dear” master already has turned against me. But apparently had made similar experiences.

-What we have here… What brings you here, General? Did not you already say that I accept as a traitor?
-I know that. This caused me to be here. We need to talk… alone.
-Let’s go into the garden.

     So we did it. We went out and distant enough not to hear our conversation.

-Well? I’m listening to you.
-Kamael told me that you were preparing to betray us. But Stefan told us that you will have meeting with Red-haired hunter.
-For the first I cannot agree, but the second is true,
-You want to tell you and you will go to tell on the boss. I’m not that stupid. And the reaction of Kamael, I expected to punish me all over.
-Why he did this?
-Remember that I told you that I have a secret that I cannot tell you?
-I told it to him. Since then he hates me.
-What is the secret?
-Okay. This is the only way to gain an idea of the situation. I told him that I have feelings to you. Do not get me wrong.
-Are you surprising? Well, I told him. And then he changes to me.
-That’s right. I noticed it. Now tell me about the hunter.
-Liam. Maybe he can be a good ally, but it seems now I need one. We both know it’s only a matter of time to chase me. And now you know that I must to take care of my sister.
-Yes. I request to you.
-I’m listening.
-Take care and for Stefan. When Kamael has identified you, probably he will try to kill him too.
-I’ll help because I like the boy. And what will you do?
-I will explore. I cannot afford even Kamael to hurt you.
-And why not? You do not have any obligation to us. Well, only to Stefan, who is your friend. Better not risk for us.
-This is my problem. Do not interfere. Now better go back to the room with your sister.

     He turned and disappeared into the darkness, as always. Now I took responsibility and to Stefan. I don’t know why I had to do that, but when I think twice… this is the right thing that I should do. Moreover, he was quite pleasant as a person.

     I went to my sister, who was awakened. When I got it she jumped on me and hugged me. She cried and I had no idea why. For that and I hugged her. I stroked her hair with my hand and tried to calm her down.

-What is it, girly? You had a nightmare?
-Yes. Very bad nightmare. I was scared that you’re gone and left me here.
-Relax. I’m already here and not going anywhere without you, sis. Now go to sleep.
-What about you? Will not you sleep?
-Don’t worry about me.

     I sat on the chair and this time I could sleep without being interrupted.

     The night was relatively calm, but I kept on the lookout for any second. Every moment could happen something and I had to have prepared for action.

     Early morning someone knock on the door and Mireya opened. Stefan stood at the door and looked at her with wide eyes. It was obvious that he likes her. But he quickly remembered why he was here and asked for me. My sister invited him and he went. I quickly woke up from nap and wonder I asked him for the reason for his visit.

-What is it, my friend? What happened to you that you’re here so early?
-Nothing… for now, but I heard quite a suspicious conversation between Kamael’s security.
-Talk then…
-They talking about how they will caught and killed someone so that it resembles the attack of people. It concerned a vampire. In a sight that Kamael made me the last night I suspect that the conversation was for me.
-Or for me. Apparently the lord does not tolerate anyone else had anything to do with Gabriel. Regardless of the nature of the relationship.
-You’re right. Well, will you help me?
-Yes, of course. And I will not do it only because Gabriel asked me to keep you and my sister in save. This night both of you coming with me to the hunter. Gabriel may also attend or at least with that impression I got after our conversation last night.

     Then Mireya interventions.

-So for that you went? So he knocks on the door?
-Exactly. Now take an advice from me. Keep naturally just if you do not know anything. If Kamael understand that we are aware of his plans he will act sooner than anticipated.

     Stefan left the room and Mireya change her clothes. As usual, I also took it upon myself to my duties. I did a few laps around the building to make sure that people of Zatorius do not watching us. And I took to explore all possible inputs and outputs.

     Then a report the situation and retired to do something else. I did not want to cause unnecessary suspicion.


     Gabriel and Kamael stood in the library and talked as usual. Fortunately for all of us, Gabriel knew how can rotate the questions to receive answers without cause for suspicion.

-Do you still think that Tamara will betray us?
-Yes. Vampires as her are quite prone to defection. Do not forget that she is half-Evil.
-But she is our creation too. I think that you exaggerate.
-What are you talking about?
-You’ll understand… Very soon.
