Willie and Kylar had just finished discussing the information the two of them had pulled out of the two traitor guards, on their way to go feed. Suddenly, a feeling a danger and dread filled Kylar. On alert, he tapped Willie’s shoulder, indicating something was going to happen. But it definitely wasn’t what Kylar was expecting.
“Die bloodsucking pigs!” Running out from behind Willie and Kylar, some bratty human ran out into the road and threw something.
The small orb hit the ground at the vampires’ feet and exploded into true daylight. The kid’s joy quickly turned to dismay as Kylar immediately leapt from the light and landed right next to him. Glancing at the boy, Kylar activated Bio Manipulation and paralyzed the human.
Raven ran up as Willie jumped out of the light, and slashed at the human with a dagger.
“Ah, Willie, wait!!” Raven jumped forward, failing to stop Willie as he cut through the immobile human. Finally, he managed to get the other vampire to stop. “Willie! Wait! We must interrogate him first, then we can eat him, ok?”
At that moment, Kylar’s hand shot out and grabbed the boy, tossing him back behind himself. “No one is eating this one.” he said, watching both of the other vampires very carefully. “I want to personally deal with this one.”
“Why do you get all the fun?” Raven asked frowning.
“Just trust me, I will deal with him, you two go ahead and fine something better to eat.”
“But why should we go when we have something right here to eat?” argued the french vampire.
Kylar was about to respond when both Raven and Kylar realized, Willie was no longer there with them. Spinning around, Kylar arrived just in time to see Willie bite into the human’s wrist. As he stepped forward to try and pull Willie off the boy, Kylar tripped and fell on top of the human, causing Willie to stand up.
“Oi, come on Kylar! Get off the boy! I want some information from him before we feed. Now undo the paralysis!” Raven sighed, folding his arms.
“I will only release him if you leave him alone once you get what you get what you want.” Kylar stood firm with this until Raven finally decided it wasn’t worth it and walked off with Willie.
Turning towards the boy, Kylar searched him. This kid has a bag full of orbs, probably what he threw at them earlier. Continuing his search, he found a silver sword and some throwing daggers, a revolver with silver ammo. Kylar frowned. What ever this kid was attempting to do would have been dangerous if he had any experience.
Picking the human up, Kylar grinned. “Well, it seems we’re going to have a little bit of fun tonight. Don’t worry though, I won’t kill you. I just have some questions, and then, I’m going to show you what it’s like to be…. Well, one of the bloodthirsty killers you tried so hard to kill just now.” Tossing him over his shoulder, Kylar made off for the mansion.
At one point, the paralysis wore off and the boy made a grab for his weapons only for Kylar to knock the air out of him and paralyze him again. This lasted until Kylar got to his room, and tied the human up.
“Alright.” Kylar said, taking off his jacket. “I do have a couple of questions. And I’m in a forgiving mood. If you answer truthfully, I might even let you go, since you decided to bring me all those little gifts. So…” With one hand, Kylar picked him up and slammed the human against the wall. “Who sent you? How did you find this place?”
“I dont know! It was a drop off letter, just telling me where this place was!”
After a little more interrogating, screams could be heard from Kylar’s room until Kylar walked out of his room and locked the door, only to run into Willie and Raven, returning from feeding. And both wanted answers about Kylar’s relationship with Vlad. Taking a deep breath, Kylar explained everything including his plans about turning the human. It was then Willie mentioned a kid he’d been playing with. When questioned, Willie said the child was shy, so he may or may not come out to say hi.
Two more days passed. It was determined the group would head to Paris, one of Angelica’s old hang outs. But first, Kylar introduced them to Buddy, his newly turned 8 foot tall ghoul, who was always hungry. Immediately, Kylar realized he was going to have his hands full.
Everyone gathered at Willie’s car. That is to say, everyone who was still there. Niko had gone off onto some quest that Kylar was told happened from time to time, and Reggie seemed to have decided she no longer wanted to travel with the group. In the end, it was Kylar, Willie, Raven and Buddy.
The first half of the trip was seemingly peaceful. Buddy had his head out the car while everyone one else stayed inside, chatting. It seemed like an easy ride, until they hit their first road block.
Six hybrid jumped in front of the car. Cursing, Kylar reached for his newly bought rifle as Willie signaled to the driver to hit the gas. As they slammed into two of the hybrids, there was a loud bang from the car. As the driver struggled to maintain control, Buddy leapt from the car, screaming about playing and completely crushed a hybrid into a bloody pulp. Switching the safety of his rifle off, Kylar took aim and fired at the nearest hybrid, clipping him in the shoulder. Raven followed suit, reaching across Kylar to fire his pistol, hitting another.
The car started to swerve to the side as one of the Hybrids jumped forward and barely managed to claw Kylar before the car skidded away to a stop.
“Dammit…” Kylar muttered as both he and Raven jumped out opposite doors of the car, guns blazing. Willie had become his bat form, swooping around the neck of one of the vampires. Buddy was taking care of his own business, throwing one vampire at another, still ranting about how he didnt want kisses. Raising his rifle, Kylar unloaded on an ugly hulking thing that charged him. Riddling the thing with silver bullets, the thing was moving at a snails pace by the time it got there. At that point, Kylar simply punched the thing, putting it out of it’s misery.
All the hybrids were dead, except for one Willie was questioning.
“Who sent you?” he snarled, lifting the vampire off his feet.
“My boss, who rules these land. We’ve been told to deal with the people giving us trouble, a group in a purple caddie.” The vampire sneered, glaring at Willie.
“Well, go tell your boss to stop messin with us, or we’ll come after him next” Willie said, letting the vampire fall to the ground
Buddy perked up, realizing someone was still alive. “Can I eat him?” He asked, loudly, starting towards the vampire.
“Buddy, no!” Kylar snapped as he reloaded his rifle.
“But Buddy’s hungry!” he whined. “Buddy wants fooooood!”
“You have plenty of food here, just eat that.” he said, pointing at the mangled bodies of the other vampires.
Pouting, Buddy walked over to the corpses and just began eating what he could. Shaking his head, Kylar made his way to the car, Willie not far behind. The car itself had blown a tire that took 30 minutes to repair. The rest of the trip to Buenos Aires was fairly uneventful.
Upon reaching the city, the group returned to the suite they went to when they first arrived. As the group fed and waited, Willie talked to the hotel owner, apparently about Willie’s rival who moved into town. Unable to get much, the group decided to try and get a hold of Françios. After several hours, the group was able to get ahold of the vampire and made arrangements to travel to Paris, France.
While they waited, Willie decided to gather something to eat along the way for everyone. Until Buddy made it clear he wanted to eat them all.
“Buddy, I will go get you three people to feed fro during the trip, but you can only eat three, understand?” Kylar pointed at Willie’s group. “You’re not allowed to touch them. Do I make myself clear?”
After much whining and pouting, Buddy finally agreed and Kylar managed to ‘convince’ three unsuspecting people to join them on their flight. But there was a small issue. Françios arrived, but he couldnt take everyone, including their on flight snacks.
Sighing, Willie had everyone but Buddy pick three to join them. Reaching into his pocket, he pulled some cash out and paid the ladies for their time.
“No!!!! I want to eat!!” Buddy screamed as the women started to leave. Tensing, the ghoul started forward after them.
“Buddy, stay!” Kylar barked, exerting his control over the 8 foot monster. Buddy instantly froze before getting on the plane, pouting again.
Thankfully the trip got off without a hitch and after much discussing, the group decided to check the Catacombs below Paris. As it turned out, Françios had a map of the underground labyrinth. Though the map was old, forcing Raven to look up a modern day map, just in case. Unfortunately, the maps didnt match and they were forced to go with the one online.
While Raven did his research, Willie had gone out to do a little “Shopping”. He came back with a man who promised to lead them through the labyrinth, as well as head lamps, lanterns and a GPS for everyone. As a just in case. At this point Niko showed up, apparently having called Raven for their location.
As they were about to enter the Catacombs, Raven’s card from Alice started to warm up. She contacted him to simply remind them they could contact her for certain items they might want. Agreeing they didnt need anything right now, the group readied themselves.
In the darkness, Anjelika was potentially hiding. She might be alone, or she might have an army. She might not even be there, but if she was, Kylar wasn’t going to let her escape.
