Re: Unspoken files of Cassandra Aslan
First File :Chapter One :Our Old Mansion
This story started many generations ago in my family, but the reality and truth was far more barbaric and cruel then you could have ever imagined. I will share this story with all of you.
We had an old mansion that nobody used anymore, but the grounds had some nice buildings where we could stay if we wanted to have our vacations there. It is told that even now, on some nights, you can hear screams and cries from below the ground. And of course, as we still were young when we heard these stories for the first time, we thought maybe there was a reason for those sounds, and started to explore the ruins of that mansion every year when we were there.
The only strange thing we were able to find was a solid wall with strange holes in it.
But time passed, and we grew older and started to think those stories were just stories, never thinking back on those cries until we were adults.
My cousin became head of the family and wanted to live in the main house again. However, since it was a ruin, he needed to demolish the remaining walls and the half-fallen roof. It would become a bit bigger and would also have a cellar so we could store some things. Almost every wall was gone, and only the strange wall in the middle of the mansion remained. There was no real room behind it and no door so it was very strange. The people hired for the demolishing came to my cousin and us who were there as well and told us that they had uncovered a staircase that went down, but they had not gone down yet. They asked if we wanted to go down, and for us it was like we finally could find out if there was a reason behind those stories of screams and cries.
From the car, we took some flashlights and a few candles and then started walking towards that staircase with a lot of confidence. I wish I had never gone down that staircase...

Re: Unspoken files of Cassandra Aslan
Chapter Two: Catacomb
Flashlights turned on, the guys and me started to walk towards the staircase.
“I have a bad feeling about this”were my thoughts. For my family it was a big adventure. Though I was the last person to enter the staircase, I was walking in a very slow pass
“Cassy, walk a bit quicker will you.”my brother shouted from a bit lower
I rolled with my eyes something he couldn't see and answered “I will if there wasn't a chance I would bump into you,Chris.”
“nuh she is just a scaredy cat.”my cousin said to mingle in our conversation
And all the guys laughed of course.
“you guys are sooo mean”I said to them, but my feelings of unrest was still
there. As we were descending the staircase which seemed to have no end.
Even Cam felled a shiver down his spine. He laughed about it and said it was the cold and moldy air from the surroundings.
The decent took a lot of time maybe that was just a feeling but still.
But in the end we came downstairs. There was a round room with markings on the ground and an altar like pedestal in the middle at the corners were iron chains. Near the altar were 4 pillars like torch-holders .The walls left and right from the stairs were doors but on the opposite side of the stairs the seemed to be an other hallway leading to some other place. Between the doors were torch-holders with still some torches in. I shivered for a moment maybe because of the cold in this room maybe because of fear.
Then Liz looked at everyone and asked”should we go back to let others explore these catacombs or should we move forward?
What do you think Cam?”
Cam answered”of course I don't need to think about it I don't want to go back”
Liz looked around his eyes stopped for one of my brown haired brothers “would you want to turn back Don?
Don answered”why would I turn back this is a one in a life time chance to find something of importance”
Liz looked to the last of my brothers”I think I don't need to ask but what would you do Dan?
Dan answered”you already know the answer of course I want to go explore.”
Liz signed he looked at me and asked “Cassy, you don't want to turn back either right”
“you bet I want to know as much as all of you what is hidden in this kind of place, and for some reason it would be bad to turn back after we had foot in this room, until we found out what here was”I said. I continued “I know you are worried about me but I am sure I can manage what we find here”
Liz signed again he shrugged and we started to walk to the middle of the room to see what kind of altar it was. For some reason, before we were standing for an altar we walked to the torch-holders and light time. Each of us walked to a place Cam and Liz started to put on the torches to the left, Dan and Don did to the same thing on the right and I started to fire the torches in the middle. The light that started to shine gave the room a macabre feeling shadows that were dancing around. But that was not all the altar seemed to have a lot of bloodstain the same was for the floor but the markings were in a pentagram and other symbols. The lines that were on the ground were a bit deeper then the tiles. And were colored rust like. Cam said “what the, I think our ancestors were in the occult. But maybe even human sacrifices. but the evilness that was lingering here has been awaken by us. So we can not turn back until the victims of those dark ages has put to rest.”
we all looked at Cam with open mouths, this was something we didn't expect to hear from him, he always acted as nothing could get to him. And yet he could say these kind of deep words. Maybe we have all that kind of legacy more knowledge of the not really understandable things.
When we were standing in the circle around the altar we felt a cold sinister wind flowing around us. Trying to lead is into the darkness, which would have been easy if we hadn't all have a feeling of justice within us, unlike our family before us, we didn't want to hurt people we wanted to use our power to help those in need. Not for family fame just because it was the right thing to do.
We couldn't change what our ancestors did before us but we could help the spirits of the ones they killed to find rest, that is what we believed, o boy I still can't believe how naive we were until then ...
Re: Unspoken files of Cassandra Aslan
we started to hear screams of pain and crying from children and adults
we looked around the room but couldn't find the course of this noises,
the rusty blood coloring the altar had become bright red again and the markings on the floor started to shine. It was almost as if the altar itself has started to beat as a living heart. Pulsing strong and regular.
I couldn't help it really I couldn't.
or some reason I wanted to touch this beating stone heart, the first stepped that I walked I still had my full conscious but the closer I got to the altar the vaguer everything become until I reached a trance state, I was so close that I almost could touch the stone, I almost touched the stone but I was stopped by an hand on my wrist, still in a haze I looked up and saw that Liz was holding my wrist and Cam who was standing behind me ready to put his arms around me to hold me from doing what I wanted to do, to stop me from touching that beating altar. Their faces were masks of horror, which brought me back to my senses, but still I couldn't let go of the feeling that I wanted to touch the altar.
So I said “why did you stop me I only wanted to touch it? There is no reason to look like that” Liz and Cam looked of there was a screw loose in my head.
Then Liz started to talk”yeah well, uhm we didn't mind that you wanted to touch the altar stone. But when you started to undress yourself before us we knew that their was something wrong with you, you didn't even react when we called your name, Cassy. What else could we have done?”
of course I didn't believe I was standing naked before my family and a single word Liz said about what happened since I didn't even remember undressing myself if that really would had happened. But then a chilly wind flow by me and I felt that on a place I shouldn't have felt that cold wind, for that I looked down and saw my naked breasts and some more body parts me that were bare. I fled embarrassment and tried to cover myself.
Turning around and running towards my first layer of cloths. But when I wanted to walk to the rest of my cloths an invisible wall was stopping me for a moment.
At that time I heard a voice talking to me softly “please, let us show you our stories, so that our restless souls can find peace at last, the first of us are here for over a millennium, even though some want revenge against the family that did this to us we can promise you that we will not harm any of you in any way. For that I can give you my word.”
“uhm guys did you also hear a young woman’s voice speaking?”
nope we haven't heard a thing, Cassy” they were looking at me as if I was crazy.
When I started to rely the message was the girl said to me.
“let them stand between the pillars of fire, with there arms wide the eldest need to stand at the head end of the altar, the how the rest is standing isn't really a must but I can see a twin with you let them stand opposite of each other, for more power” they wanted to object to what the ghost asked them to do, but I looked at them with eyes even if you disagree with it I will do it no matter what.
I looked them in the eyes and said to make sure they would understand what I said :”the girl promised me it was save, that I wouldn't be in danger from the other ghosts, and I want to hear there stories”
they signed and walked to their places, taking the pose that the spirits wanted.
I on the other hand was feeling really excited because of it all, at least at that time. When The girl let me to the altar and made me take place on it.
I felt a coldness taking over my body that I haven't felt before but feeling was also relaxing, there was a voice calling deep within my conscience that was leading me to the place in a fading past that was long forgotten. But I felt save in the embrace of my family members and the ghost that were watching over me so that no harm would come to me.
But what I saw in those visions would have scared me to death if I hadn't felt that embrace because the images were true horror ones. The things they did to the girls, it wasn't just rape or even torture.
I saw even a young girl pregnant and they cut the child out of her living her to bleed to death end they would even violate her body more so that more blood would flow to sacrifice it to the altar so that our ancestors would get more power.
But it seems it wasn't always that bad. That is also a part what the ghost showed me those ghost were much older then the ones of the raped and violated girl. The older images became almost gentle , but I also felt why it my ancestors changed from the only taking a virgin that would have become their wives.
To searching for slaves and other low class girls and women to torture and violate. The only reason they did it was to get more power, but there was a counter effect to it the power consumed them, they weren't glad to have more power, they only want even more. But that was also the reason why that place vanished.
It was their greed for power and the torture they liked it, but part of the family didn't agree to it the ones that never searched to get that power to control others and having power that were greater then other humans, most of those ancestors that seeked the power for greed ended on the fire-pile burned to death because of it. And then those humans weren't glad when they died,because of what the altar did to them because of their greed, they became bound to the altar.
So I found out the spirits that wanted to harm me and my family were those spirits of my ancestors that were killed because of their wrong doings
Re: Unspoken files of Cassandra Aslan
Second file: First Chapter Normal Meeting
There is a family with a history shrouded in mystery and darkness. However, its present generation is not like that, as it is more for openness and goodness. Still, there are a lot of unsolved mysteries.
Cassy and some of her brothers were in a café to drink something and of course have a good time. Later on, Cam would come and they would discuss some other matters, like how it was last time and how everyone was feeling about the path they had taken, considering they had become the opposite of what most of their family would be or even think.
“What are we going to do this time? We don't know what will happen when we continue the investigation on our own family. Last time, Cassy had a really hard time dealing with those ghosts from the past.” Cam opened the conversation while nipping his coffee latte. All the others did was nod, but Cam knew with only their nodding that they wouldn't mind the danger they would face, so he asked his next question: “Have all of you heard the story told at grandmother’s place about the energy sucking vampire?”
“Yeah, we’ve heard about that story but we don't know how it exactly goes.” answered Liz.
“I know the full story.” said Cassy.
“Of course you would know the full story, Cass. Soo please inform us on how it goes.” said Kit, his voice dripping of sarcasm. Cassy pretended not to hear that and started the story.
“Okay. This story started after the old house of our great-great grandmother burned down. The story itself goes like this; after the fire, there was a rumor going on about a gorgeous looking young man in his mid twenties with silver hair and ochre, almost red colored eyes. He would drain the energy of girls and women until they were almost dead, but none of the victims would go to the police and file a complaint. Another strange thing was the way he sucked the life force out of them. If you believe the stories, he would drain the energy like a vampire would, but leave the blood. There was even an article written by a famous doctor who said that after examining the victims, he found out the only blood-loss they had was consistent with the wound they had. After six months, the attacks suddenly stopped, until the story died out. Then, it began once again in our great grandmother’s time, after the brutal murder of one of her daughters. This time, it was a beautiful silver haired woman with red eyes and a fair complexion. She drained the life force from teenage boys and men in their twenties. When a journalist asked one of the victims why they didn't tell anyone about the crime, the victim said: “What crime? She sent us to heaven for a few moments. I wouldn't have minded dying like that.” It went on for another 6 months before it stopped again. The last time was right after or during the war. There was a lot of uncertainty in those times, but I only know it was in our grandmother’s time, when her eldest son went to war and never came back. After that, a gorgeous looking young man in his twenties surfaced again, though there was a small difference with the first time he appeared. This time, he was only active for 3 months. There were rumors that it was because an angel stopped him. This golden haired girl with amber eyes vanished at the very same time as the energy draining demon…” Cassy finished her story like that.
“Wow, what a story.” said Liz.
“But why has this story been told so much lately?” asked Cam.
“That’s simple.” answered Kit.
“Really, I don't see the point...” was still Cam's opinion.
“Be surprised, because I know why!” It was Dan who said these words.
His twin brother Liz looked at him, stunned, and then nodded. Cam and Kit only said
“Okay. Tell us.”
“When you start to calculate it, then the monster would’ve appeared during our mothers’ time. Last I heard that there was a death in our family, it was that of a young couple who died in a plane crash. It is not really certain whether it was the woman or the man who was from our family since everyone is a bit tense at the moment, but according to this legend, it is the silver haired woman’s turn to appear.”
“Then, we should try to stop the 6 months of attacks by this monster when it starts happening.” was Kit's opinion.
“We should find more information about this before we take action.” was Cam’s reply.
“Then, should we meet again before going to our grandmother’s place for her birthday in 10 days?” asked Dan.
“Yes. Let's meet again next week. Same place, but an hour later.” It was Kit who said this.
“Wow. It seems I’m not the only one intrigued by this.” Cassy smiled as she said that.
“I take my leave then. Bye, everyone.” Kit stood up and left the café.
One by one, they left with the words that they would look into the case of the energy draining vampire. It became the name for this case.

Re: Unspoken files of Cassandra Aslan
i'm glad u did made a thread for it
Re: Unspoken files of Cassandra Aslan
yeah maybe if I have an other idea for the cassy files it would be easier to put them all together instead in the short story thread
Re: Unspoken files of Cassandra Aslan
Second File: chapter 2 A Long Week
after the meeting was over it did take long for them to find some kind of shred of information about the energy draining vampire how the case was cold. Cassy found a few living victims of the last time the vampire was active. There weren't many persons who were drained of their energy this time. On top of that the people weren't much of help, because they only had nothing but good about what happened to them. Cassy hoped the others had more success in finding more information.
It was Friday afternoon the day they would meet again to discuss what would happen next. Cassy walked into the cafe with a disappointed look on her face, she had hoped to find more clue's on. The twins Liz and Dan were already present. They saw Cassy face and made a few joked about it like “it seems this is a wild ghost hunt instead of a vampire hunt” or “think we should start to flirt more” Cassy laughed about it. Since her brothers couldn't do something else than flirt with every girl they saw. The mood lighted an bit but not enough to make Cassy stop thinking about what some of the old grannies had said about the energy vampire and the golden angel.
A few minutes later Cam and Kit came and finally the meeting could start.
As usual Cam took the lead in the meeting. “to be honest I couldn't find a clue to this case, each time I looked in the archives I hit a dead-end or someone who would block my way, it seems Cam had the same problem with the police files since it was only assault and not murder. How did your investigation went Liz or Dan. Cass did your way of looking into things bared more fruit?”
“ We found out something really important.”
Dan started to speak, the rest of the group with exception of Liz were sitting on the edge of their chairs waiting for what Dan would say.
“uhm I found nothing out”
when Dan said that a faint smile was on Liz face. Cam fell almost down from his chair and Kit had a coughing attack because he was drinking his coffee latte. But Cassy didn't laugh or had some kind of attack.
“so it seems that I am really the only one that has a clue. One thing that I need to tell all of you, it really seems that our family is indeed involved. It happens every time the is a death without a course or an accidental one. But only in a time frame of once every 50 years. There are still a lot of unanswered questions that need to be answered. What I do know is that the victims that are still alive know have font memories of what happened to them with the silver vampire. He uhm gave them a little bit more than a scar in their necks when he sucked their energy out. Saw a few of the descendant of those women that were attacked some had a very rare color eyes. Not to mention their silver blond hair but not all of those girls had children from him. What they had remembered of the golden girl that intervened this that time. One of the later victims said she introduced herself like this “I am Ishtara. your hunter and your comrade” most of them said that this was easy to remember because at that time they thought it was weird who would say that? An enemy and a friend. It took Ishtara 3 months or something like that to convince him that she was really not that bad of a person. When I asked them what was his name none of them could remember that only his face and hair and some had a vague recollection of what he did to them but only a very few.
That is all that I could find out”
“then we really need to go to our grandmother’s place.”
was Cam's opinion.
“should we go by car or public transportation?”
it was a common question then why took it Kit or Cam so long to answer this normal question yet difficult to reply to. It is either with a car or a public transportation why it that so difficult or is it just me?
“I think it is better that we do it both ways” Cam started to speak “both with a car and the train?”
“I don't think that would be wise, I know we can't invade peoples home with all of us but if we split ourselves up in 2 groups we need for both group an car. We also can't expect that we can borrow Grandma's car for each time.”
“that is true Cass, but I think most of the home visits are in the same town which we can do by bus or walking.”
“then I rest my case”
“okay Dan, Cam and Liz you go with the train. Cassy and I will take my car to get there.”
“why do you only take Cassy with you in your car?”
“that has a reason we can not speak of yet, I need to ask her some personal things”
“ooh okay, that we don't bother you with it.”
“2 weeks from now I have a vacation of a week. Is it possible that all of you can also take some days.”
“isn't then some holy days at least 2 of them. Were everyone is supposed to have free only if you have a certain job. It started that weekend until Tuesday. It should be easy to get an other 3 days free”
“that is right I forgot about those days. We meet Friday around 18.00 at the train station. Kit will fetch Cassy at home.”
everyone of us agreed with this.
“okay, since the serious part is done now, how wants to go to the bios to catch a nice action movie?”
“I want to come with you, there is a nice fantasy action movie called Ayolin in the movie theater.”
after that they went to the movies together, it was a nice movie with lots of action and tragic love. But also it was realistic at least for the Aslans because of the supernatural effects in the show. After the movie they went to a place were they could dance. Not the modern dances but the old fashioned like the waltz or foxtrot, the dances that really needed a partner to dance. Cassy favorite were the jive or the quickstep. That evening and night she danced a lot mostly with her cousins and brothers. This was relaxing and try to forget what they might find in that remote village. Early in the morning they went home to start preparing for their departure over 2 weeks.

Re: Unspoken files of Cassandra Aslan
Second File: Final Chapter Bloody Altar
Finally the group had arrived at their grandmother’s village. Silent and peaceful was the best way to describe this shore side place.
The four guys walked slowly towards a big house at the end of the village, before one of the group could knock on the door, the door opened and a young woman ran outside hugging the first guy in her path. She said relieved “finally you arrived I feared that you wouldn't come. We should have arrived almost simultaneously. But we hadn't heard of you”
“Sorry, sis. The trains were delayed and after that we missed our bus connection”
“Wow that sucked”Was Cass opinion
“It seems at one point that our journey here was cursed or stopped by some force” the other 3 guys nodded when Liz shared his thoughts with Cassandra and Christian who just walked outside to find out why the rest didn't come inside already.
“Kit, did you find out what you wanted to know in the drive to here?”
“Of course did you have doubt”
“That is not it,bro. It is just that we are curious about what you talked with her”
“Oh nothing specials dear brothers, just how I would react if I am again the main reason someone would wake up from there long lasting slumber”
“That I never asked. But wouldn't it be better if it was someone else and not always our youngest member and a girl.”
“That is true, I also want a lead in this, would be fun to be the demon. Am I not handsome enough for it?”
It was true that Liz with his shoulder length blond hair would be a great demon he even had a devilish laughter when he wanted to. But his character was everything but demonic.
On top of that the victim who would become a demon was already killed in that accident that killed their cousin and his wife.
“You never can become a demon, dear brother. you are too good for it, Dan on the other hand would become a great demon.”
“You are not funny at all, Cassy. You may think you are a angel but I am certain that you are a devil in disguise” Dan said with a laugh in his voice “But all is good, we don't even know what we are going to face this time. Should we be prepared for the worst?”
“No, never. This will be a easy case to solve.” It was Kit who said this with a hardness in his voice that they wouldn't expect coming from him.
After that the discussion was closed and everyone walked indoors with a tension that was very unnatural for the group.
That evening everyone tried to forget what happened that afternoon,there still was a dark sword of misfortune hovering above them. It wasn't that much fun to hang around them, each had their own thoughts about what would happen in the next few days.
Unexpected their grandmother came into their room they all shared.
“There is something I need to tell you guys, about the mystery you are working on”
“But grandma we thought you knew nothing about?” it was Cam who said these words
“It is not that I didn't know anything about it, it is just that I don't like talking about it, nobody really know that the accidental family deaths aren't the real course of those vampires”
“What do you mean grandmother?” asked Cassy
“Go to the cave that is a day walk from here, you can't take a car or any other way of transportation. But be warned it is dangerous, don't shed tears no matter what”
“I don't know, my grandmother told this when I was your age”
“We can always find that out if we find that cave. Thanks grandmother”
“We should go to bed early. Since we need to walk to there”
Ater those words Liz was the first who took out his travelers gear. The rest followed him in the next 30 minutes. Cassy was glad that there was a second bathroom so she didn't have to wait for the guys to finish.
Early the next morning Christian's phone rang, it was the alarm he set. He was a person who would sleep trough the alarm he set if it wasn't his normal waking up time. Liz on the other hand was a light sleeper on top of that he was sleeping next to Kit, Liz turned of the alarm then stood up and walked to the bathroom took a glass of very cold water, walked back to the sleeping Christian and purred the cold water over him and said “Kit I thought you wanted to start the walking early. But the way you are now it seems you want to start around midday”
“Stupid Lisette why did you have to trow that cold water over me, a soft way would be very effective”
“Don't call me that, you know I hate that nickname Cassy thought of”
“Okay I am getting up, what about the others?”
“They are almost finished and ready to go downstairs for their breakfast”
“Ooh, then I will hurry. Tell Cass to make some sandwiches for on the way”
After those words Christian hurried into the bathroom to take a quick cold shower to remove the last bit of sleep he still had. Dressed he came downstairs with his backpack on his shoulders.
“While I eat all of you should at least fetch your sleeping-bag and airbed, in the worst case we should be ready to sleep there. We will leave in 10 minutes and Cassy thanks for the snacks you made.”
After those words he attacked the stuff on the breakfast table, his plate was over flowing with beacon, scrambled eggs, toast and a lot of cheese. His second plate was filled with the summer fruits, present there like strawberries, peaches and a few types of melons.
He was just drinking the last of his tea when the others returned from packing their traveling gear. Everyone divided the packed lunches Cass made. On most were cheese or peanut butter and on request she had made a few hazelnut pasta.
Cam was the last one who walked out the front, his grandmother came close still dressed in her morning dress and clamps in her hair.
“Cam, I shouldn't give this to you, it is a map to the cursed cave. But promise me that all of you are careful, again be warned it is tear fluid not only tears of sadness”
“I promise grandma we all will come back alive”
“HÉ CAM HOW LONG ARE YOU PLANNING ON STAYING INDOORS, WE WANT TO LEAVE”
“I AM COMING” Shouted cam back to the waiting group out side to his grandmother he said “good bye wish us good luck so we can close this family mystery case safely”
"The best of luck my grandchildren of light”
With those words said Cam hurried outside to the waiting group out side, wait he saw at that moment had nothing to do with the words his grandmother just said to him. The light made Liz hair look silver instead of the dark yellow blond he always had on top of that the dark brown curls of Cassy looked golden. What is happening here, is this a vision of the future?
Instead of outing his worries he said “I am ready to go and I have a map to the cave area”
“Waahh really. Who gave you the map?”
“Come let us walk to the south a long the coast line”
After those words Cam lead the group south the way wasn't flat like they thought it would be not even a road was made,
“I should have taken my ax with me or at least a sword to cut those branches of that are hitting my beautiful face”
“Your face is as ugly as the night you were born on” said Liz to his twin brother
“I am just glad that we have a different genetic make up”
The rest of the group burst into laughter it was a joke the twins would always say when they disagreed on a subject. When Cam saw a big rock standing tall in the ocean he said
“Let us have a break here at this rock. Since we are midway the route, we walked a bit faster that planned”
“I wonder why grandma would say this walk would take a day?”
“Maybe in the past it would have taken that long” Answered Cassandra
“No”started Liz “I think the reason is because they were so sad about the loss over their family members that they forgot the route to the cursed caves”
It felt strange that Liz was saying those things. Not that he was unfamiliar with people feelings but more it was Christian or Cassandra who usually would say the human side of the story and insides. Cam thought back what he saw at the beginning of the walk, Liz having silver hair and eyes that have the color of the earth that is overflowing with blood. Cass standing before him and the rest of the guys protecting them.
He shook his head, not wanting to believe that premonition.
After a moment of rest they moved on to the next part of the trail they needed to travel this time it was more land inwards, to the fields and forest.
“There is something lingering in the forest. Something very old and yet it feels new”
“Why would you say that Liz?”
“Because my dear twin brother that is how I feel”
“That is it, my honorable brother is mental”
“I am not crazy, it is just that I feel this way. Ooh look guys there is the cave so it seems”
“How come that you already found the cave,Liz?”
“It feels like I am lead to this place, it is just more familiar to me than it should be”
“Familiar? What o you mean?”
” Hard to explain Christian I can only say that I know this place, maybe even been here before”
“That can't be bro, we never explored this part of the village land.”
“Then give me an explanation why I know the way in this cave?”
“There aren't that many paths to take,mostly a straight line”
"Uhm guys not really. At every crossing there are like at least 3 routes we could have taken. But it seems you only have seen the ones that I took when walking in here”
“Ooh. Were are you leading us to than?”
“Well I am not really sure”
After those words they felt a cold wind coming from the cave right in front of them.
“It seems we have found the center of the cursed caves”
The room they walked in felt warm yet the wind was cold, as the room light had a warm red,
the wall was like flesh. The pedestal in the middle looked like a bunch of intestines piled up, while they walked further into the chamber a icy breeze filled the room and made their eyes wet.
“NO WE NEED TO LEAVE THIS ROOM RIGHT AWAY”
but it was too late, the intestines came to live and captured Liz, the rest of the group was untouched. When Liz was laying on the pedestal a red colored stone was shown not only that but the intestines entered the lower part of his body, he wanted to scream but he wasn't able to the only thing that made clear that he had it hard was his upper body moving a lot, trying to free himself. Which didn't work he lost most of his cloths doing that. For what seemed an eternity the rest of the group froze. When they were able to move again all of them wanted to hurry and free Liz from the claws of that 'monster' that was eating him alive so it seemed.
The unexpected thing happened, Dan was standing before them stopping their movement to run to Liz. For a second his normal blond hair glowed golden when he said “don't it will be alright”
“Don't you want to save your brother?”
“Yes, but he is more than my brother, he is my destiny”
“Destiny, you do know that he is a man and your brother you can't be together like that”
“He isn't my brother anymore as I am not his”
"Wow that is vague,oi wait don't tell me you are the reincarnation of the golden angel”
“That is what I am saying Cassandra, you should have seen the hints”
“No that can't be the golden haired girl I saw was Cassandra, not you”
“Oh dear Cam, that was only part of the vision, the part you were open for to at that moment"
“Is that the reason why you were born his twin?”
“Yes, otherwise it would have been nearly impossible to find him”
“Have you always know what happened in the past?” this time it was Cassandra who asked the question.
“No and when it didn't happened this generation I wouldn't have remembered it, the round to here was what made me remember like it did with Liz.”
“Then what are you going to do now? Kill the person? Or wasn't that your plan before everything started?”
“No Cassandra there will be no deaths at least not in that way.”
“Explain it to us cousin otherwise we don't understand what will happen”
“Leave these caves for now, after our a day we will come to you again. Wait for us at the entrance or go to our grandmothers place we will find you”
“No we wait here, we don't leave our family members or anyone behind. No matter what will happen” This time it was Christian who said it. The rest nodded with a seriousness in there eyes that wouldn't fade no matter what Dan would say. After looking in their eyes for a while Dan sighed “okay but promise me that none of you will move from the place were you are now standing if you can't do that than please leave this room”
After those words Cassandra looked in her cousins eyes. She closed hers for a second taking a deep breath “I think it is better if we leave this room and trust Dan that he will can handle it alone”
with gratefulness in his eyes he nodded to Cassandra, she on the other hand turned around and took Cameron and Christian by the hand and forced them to walk with her. It was strange even though she saw a lot of paths she knew which to take and which would lead to traps.
Outside they made a camp were they would stay as long as Liz and Dan were in those caves.
Cameron and Christian looked for wood they could use for making a fire and Cassandra for eatable plants and fruits. They even made rope traps to kill small animals.
After five long days of waiting Liz and Dan walked out of hand in hand, one with silver hair and bloody earth eyes, and one who was golden and wore a halo.
Cassandra hurried towards them “We are so glad you are safe again. What is with your new appearance?”
“It was good that you weren't in that chamber, I don't think you would have been able to stay awake for those days and not move from that spot” it was Dan who would tell the story.
“Close your eyes maybe we are able to show it”
With these words Dan let go of Liz hand and took the right hand of Cameron and left hand of Cassandra. While Liz took the opposite hands of these two. Christian was standing in the middle “Why am I standing in the middle?”
“Because you are able to see even if we don't hold hands, no close your eyes and relax. All of you just left the room”
Liz lay on the blood stone altar and with veins and intestines holding their tight grip on him, Dan had his eyes close for a moment, after a deep breath when opened them he wasn't alone anymore in his mind, he had an other presence within him. Together with her he started to walk slowly toward the blood altar, his appearance changed into the golden angel that once tried to stop the chain of events that let to this. But at that time she had been unable to do that task given to her. But now that would change, with this strong body that she had at the moment, together that the vampire still needed to be re-born out of a human. She would be able to stop everything.
"Do I have the will to safe this boy who didn't even knew the person for whom he becomes an vampire?"
"Of course do I want to safe my brother who wouldn't want to do that? I don't want to share his fate."
"Then we can do this, it will be hard and the wounds you will get will not only be mentally, are you willing to get injured."
"If it would help I am willing to give all my blood and soul for him when that would mean that he will be able to leave this place."
After this inner conversation the angel started to walk towards the altar.
From Dan's belt she took her knife that had appeared the moment he changed into the golden angel.
“I am sorry, that I was too late to stop the beginning of this”
Liz looked pained at Dan unable of bring out a word of recognition,
Dan signed “so it will be an one sided conversation”
“What do thu want?”
The voice come from somewhere in the chamber, Dan looked around to see, who it was that spoke, but he couldn't find the source of the voice until he looked at the altar again and saw Liz sitting on the the stone altar. The angel within Dan sighed so I was too late to safe this person to fully stay human. “what is wrong with my brother?” Dan asked the angel
“He is changing to the energy draining vampire you were looking for”
“How is that possible, can he change back? Or do we need to kill him so he can't make other victims?”
“We can not fully change him back to a human but with your strength we can at least make it that he doesn't need more human energy. But to make that happen I need to use all my strength.”
“Is that the price I need to pay for saving him?”
“That and never being able to have an other partner than your brother”
“Wait, you mean not a girlfriend?”
“Yes that is what I meant, you will need your brother as he needs you”
“All I can say to this knowledge is safe him no matter what the costs are for me”
“We will safe him. Thanks you for allowing me to use my full power”
“I want you to leave my brothers body”
“Mi do want to do that, this body is mine the moment e was born, even more since e walked into my cave”
The angel started cut in Dan's wrist deep enough to draw blood.
“Why are you cutting into my body?”
“That is necessary to stop the demon within your brother, now be quite for a while”
“Thu can not stop me with bhur blood!”
“We will see.”
The angel forced the demon who was resisting in Liz body to drink of Dan's blood that was flowing into Liz mouth.
“Noo, what are thu doing?”
“Letting you drink of the scared blood that is flowing to this man's body”
“Thu want to poison mi”
“Not poison, just reverse the curse that is placed on this place”
The angel took her wrist from the Liz mouth, she stopped the bleeding for a while with her other hand. shortly after it was time for her to use mental power to pressure the demon to leave Liz body, the first battle seemed endless. The first round was one by the demon, Dan felt his body change a bit, it was like there was more power flowing trough his blood and veins .
“Thu think a angel like bhur can win? Thu are a century or 2 too early.”
“We can win, just wait and see”
The angel used the dagger again to cut into an other part of Dan wrist again.
“Why are you doing this again?”
“We need to weaken the grip of the demon”
The angel forced the vampire to drink the blood instead of the energy he would normally drink, after 10 minutes or so, the angel stopped the bleeding again with a press of her other hand, and started the mind battle again, with more force than the first time, but the demon also use more strength.
“Thu lose again little angel, see that mi is stronger”
“Let us wait until the end of this all, I vow that Liz will have his own body back”
“Thu will never succeed”
This ritual repeated 20 or so times. Liz and Dan appearances had changed drastically,
Both of them looked more like the creatures resisting within. The vampire and the angel didn't have much strength left, the blood loss by the angel or the sacred blood flowing through the vampires body, who would have the power to oppress the pain and fatigue the longest.
“I don't know if I have the strength left in me to do it again the last mental battle”
“You can do it, let merge our thoughts into one”
“That would mean that you can't have your normal body back”
"I don't mind, I just want to have my twin back”
With this the angel relaxed for a moment, Dan conscience came closer to hers until know she had kept them separated, the new strength that was coming from him was overwhelming .
“What it thu new power coming from”
This time it took her only an instant to win the battle for ownership of Liz body
“This was the combined power of this body, which now only will belong to the boy. I used all my every ounce of my power to win over you. But my memories together with my knowledge aren't lost, this body will keep it and use it for good, so he would be able to fill the hunger that his twin will have”
“Thu gave bhur life for this mortal so e could safe his brother?”
“Of course, he was born for the reason to destroy you. Now that his task is done, he can find his own destiny”
“Thu are a fool”
“Goodbye, see you never again”
The chamber started to smoke, veins and intestines vaporized and turned to ash. Quickly Dan helped Liz up, together they stumbled towards the exit of the room. In the hallway they fell asleep from exhausting, it took Dan and Liz three days to return to normal to even be able to move again without the nausea of blood loss. When they walked out of the cave it was morning.
“What a memory was that. But it really explains why you look like that”
“True Christian, but that is not all of it”
“Yeah, on top of that both of you look more complete”
“Thanks sister but we couldn't have done it without any of you, you all gave us strength.”
“Okay let pack our belongings and go back to our grandmother, she would be worried about us, since we haven't come back after we left to find the cursed caves”
“Sure let us leave now, most the things are already packed, we only need to blush the fire and trow some sand into the fireplace and we are set to leave”
It took them a few minutes to do this. Walking back was easy, while staying in the area Cam, Christian and had done some recon. And found that the village was a lot closer to the caves than they first that thought. Barely 4 hours later they were standing before the house.
“What are you doing back here?” was the greeting they got from their grandmothers”
“Why are you saying something like that, the curse has been lifted, it wouldn't come back, aren't you glad that the history has been buried?”
“No I am not glad, and according to the letters written you shouldn't have been able to comeback”
“We are soo sorry grandma that we have comeback alive. And why did you want us death?”
“Because you brats aren't good for our family. You all will kill our long history of leaders and other people in high places”
“We have our own destiny to for fill”
“Yeah and we are going to stop you from doing such useless things”
After that she closed the door with a hard noise, there everyone was standing with the same thought, what are we going to do form here on?
“Let's go home for” was Cassandra's answer for this
Set made by the wonderful Dany-chan
