Delphine, gasping for air, chanted, ”Time out, time out, ” in between the clangs of breaking ankle shackles. She wanted to pass out after running for a mile.

They stopped running after the lad released her wrist. As he observed her bending over with her hands on her knees and gasping as though she had been running nonstop for two days, he scowled and crossed his arms over his chest.

She was filthy, and the dirty brown sack bag she was sporting gave her the appearance of a potato.

”I really want to insult you but for a dirty, unhealthy slave, you ran so fast. ” The lad spoke in a voice full of amusement and sat down.

”Th..Thank you! ” Delphine spoke while taking a long breath.

When she was all right, she sat down on the ground, dug her fingers into her scraggly hair, and then gave the nonchalant lad a startled glance with her wide-open, shock-filled eyes.

”How the heck did you do that? Are you certain that we are far from them? ” After asking, she took a quick glance around the dark forest before turning back to the lad.

With a heavy sigh, he said, ”You should to go to Celestia. ” He turned his head away from her.

Delphine couldn help but be intrigued by the enigmatic man in front of her. He had such strength! What was he seeking that he allowed himself to be taken by the barbarian slave traders?

”Who are you? ” She asked, gently focusing her amber, question-filled gaze on him.

The lad gave her a glance as his eyes gradually returned to being emerald in color. ”You don need to be aware of it; simply travel to Celestia because the barbarians will not give up looking for you. ” He spoke bluntly before rising.

Slowly nodding, Delphine expressed her gratitude for him. He stepped away with a harsh grimace as she rose up and approached him.

”You can touch me just because I grasped your wrist, ” She jumped as he hissed at her.

”You don like smiling and people touching you? You are such a bore. ” She questioned, laughed, and rolled her eyes in shock.

The young lad gave her a quizzical look. ”I don understand why you keep grinning and making jokes about everything when youve been a slave for five months. ” He was astonished that she wasn miserable or constantly sobbing or uttering depressing things.

Delphine gave him a beaming smile. ”Since you claimed that there is nothing in this world to make you smile, I believe you have experienced worse things than I have. Ive been through a lot, but it doesn mean I won always see the good in things. ”

”What if there isn a positive outcome? ” The young lad inquired carefully, his heart tingling with intense feelings.

”No matter how difficult a situation may be, there is always a silver lining, ” Delphine said with a heavy sigh. ”And death is sometimes that sunny side. ” She added while amusingly giggling.

She caught the lads attention, and he couldn help but be fascinated.

”Did you find what you were looking for? ” Delphine queried him enquiringly.

He rolled his eyes and replied, ”I got you out of bondage, we talked, it doesn imply that you will know everything about me. ”

”Even our names are unknown to one another! ” Delphine was extremely hurt.

”You are aware of my age, ” he objected.

Delphine complained inanely, ”But you don know mine, ” to his amused chuckle, which caused her eyes to widen in amazement.

”Go to Celestia, I hope well run into each other again, one day. ” He grinned and murmured.

Delphine smiled and hushed, ”I hope so to. ”

”Follow the moon! ” Delphine was left staring in his direction like a lost soul as he hurried away and disappeared into the deepest part of the forest, adding with a shout.

She emerged from her daze and smiled brightly while gazing in the direction of the crescent moon. She had no idea what she would do in Celestia, but she was willing to go to anyplace as long as it did not take her back to a cage.


”No! Please! Not my child! ” As he hit the ground, an elderly man yelled in terror. His bloodshot eyes, which were filled with intense anxiety and burning tears, were on display when he raised his head.

The throne room was enormous, opulent, Gothic, and old-fashioned looking. Every area of the throne room was lit by fire torches, making it appear as though it was daytime.

A gorgeous being who appeared as like he wasn meant to exist, one who appeared dangerous like a predator, was sitting on the throne on the high platform of the room. His wolf-like crimson eyes were filled with intense blood lust, and his straight, attractive thin lips were curled into a menacing smirk. His long, dark as night hair was braided into two backwards to show off his perfectly chiseled face.

”Please! ” The old man yelled once more, this time sobbing childishly.

”Please. ” A soothing, deep voice with a Russian accent resounded sinisterly in the throne room. A defenseless old man was wailing in front of him, and his crimson wolf-like eyes narrowed at him.

He continued calmly, his crimson eyes glistening ominously, ”You are crying, you are begging, you doing all this indicates that you are announcing me as a wicked person. ”

The elderly man struggled to rise up while shivering with terror. ”Please! I will do anything you ask of me! Instead of my daughter, take me! ” The elderly man begged.

He smiled as if he had just overheard a terrible joke, ”Oh very sweet, you are so eager to lay up your life for your daughter since she is your own flesh and blood, your life source, your heart and soul, your daughter. ”

The ethereal being rose from his throne, displaying his height and perfect, lean physique as the quivering old man watched in terror.

”Pl…please! ” Again, the elderly man yelled.

When another soothing deep voice with a Russian accent said, ”Stop saying that, ” the elderly man wailed and fell to the ground once more.

”Are you mistreating this elderly man, Zeus? ” With a deep chuckle, the speaker inquired.

Zeus rolled his eyes and reclined on his throne, putting one leg on top of the other and letting his body sink into the plush cushion.

A man who looked exactly like him entered the throne room. The mans hair was free and ruffled, while Zeuss was braided, and that was the only difference between them.

Zeus and Zamiel Novikov, who were also the Alphas of Celestia, were twins.

Zamiel smiled with pure satisfaction as his crimson wolf-like eyes narrowed at the old man who was staring at him like he was a ghost. His hands appeared to have been soaked in a pool of blood, and his lips and jaw were covered in blood.

”Do I appear to be a ghost? ” He questioned the elderly man while widening his red eyes to appear innocent.

”You ate dinner without me, right? ” Zeus scoffed as he asked his brother.

With a glare at his brother, Zamiel muttered, ”You know I never share anything with you. ”

”My daughter, please! ” The man charged at Zamiel while screaming hysterically. The man suddenly froze, coughing, and his head twisted strangely to face Zeus, who was firmly holding his neck.

As Zamiel saw his brother take out the old mans head, spitting blood all over him in the process, he took his time licking the blood from his blood-soaked fingers.

”Hey! I dislike old blood. ” Zeus scoffed and threw the old mans head and body to the ground as Zamiel hissed at him.

Zeus remarked in a low voice, ”You should be grateful to me, you have eaten your food. ” Then he put his bloody hands in his coats pocket pocket.

Zeus objected, ”But I need desert, ” but Zamiel grinned at him, and in an instant, he was seated on the throne.

Zamiel moaned, ”I feel a little full but not satisfied, ” as he licked his bloodied fingers.

Zeus yawned while showing off his fangs, then sighed deeply.

At his brother, Zamiel laughed. ”You should eat your food since, as usual, you will cause more destruction than I do. ” His mischievous, wolf-like red eyes twinkled.

”Your Majesties ” A grizzled voice called, glistening with respect and fear.

Zeus and Zamiel turned to face the head elder, who they perceived as a motherly figure who had been caring for them ever since they had awakened from their seemingly endless sleep.

Zeus calmly called ”Lucy, ” nodded, and then strode passed her and out of the throne room.

Lucy gave a faint smile before turning to face Zamiel, who was sitting on the throne and merely gazing at her. She then continued to look at the headless body, head, and the blood on the floor.

”You seem disturbed; whats wrong? ” Zamiel enquired.

Lucy responded with a heavy sigh, ”Im sure you have heard about stories of vampires attacking the city. ”

Zamiel calmly assured her, assuaging her concerns, ”I have and you should be resting instead of getting involved, the warriors will take care of it and if it becomes severe, I and Zeus will take care of it. ”

”However, I heard… ” Zamiel cut her off right away.

”I know youve heard they
e not typical vampires because of the scales on their backs and the unusual colors in their eyes. ”

When she looked up, he was standing in front of her. Lucy was intimidated by him because of his height.

He moved past her out of the throne room, whispering, ”Some bodies were brought in earlier, don get involved in this, Raul will, after all, he is your son. ”

Lucy murmured ”Of course ” in a low voice before closing her eyes.
