Rightio. Here you go, I hope you're all enjoying Ash's story so far. Here's the next chapter for you all
Disclaimer: I don't own Ash or any of the Strange Angels characters.
The second Vampire was no where around. Ash immediately thought that he had ran to alert Sergej, that made Ash growl in frustration. I'm gunna- Ash started to think but was interrupted by a voice that was straining to be calm.
"You're going to what, Ash?" Sergej asked through gritted teeth as he neared the murder site. Ash raised his tail high and turned to face Sergej.
I'm going to rip all of your blood filled throats out and use them to bind your hands together until the Order comes to fetch me. Ash growled at Sergej with his eyes glowing. The curly haired vampire hissed and let his fangs snap down like a snakes. A strong pulse suddenly boomed through Ash's mind. It was so strong it made him loose his place and land flat on the ground. A tight sensation gripped Ash's brain and started to squeeze. The Broken started to whimper and pant while his muscles began to spasm uncontrollably. He was in too much pain to think straight, all he wanted was for the agony to go away.
"Remember where your place is dog." Sergej said with a slight lisp and eased the pain from Ash's head. "Don't think for a second that I won't kill you."
Why would you do that? Ash strained to think as he got back onto his paws. His legs were shaking, but they still held him up. I remember you saying that I was your favourite Broken. You wouldn't kill me. Ash's words made the demon return to Sergej's expression. The wolf had gone too far this time though he still had enough strength left to hold his ground.
When Ash looked up he saw the Sergej's fuming eyes. The wolf kept contact with them, glaring right back at them with his own orange glowing irises. The ancient being and had his arm raised and ready to strike at Ash when a soft murmur came through the open door to the cell. Sergej's gaze was momentarily brought to the open doorway. His arm lowered but he turned to glare at the wolf. I'm not finished with you yet mutt. Sergej hissed through his mind to Ash's and went into the small room.
Oh I can't wait to rumble with you. Ash thought when his master had his back turned. There was a sudden jolt of pain like an electric shock go through Ash's body.
Don't forget who your master is Ash. The voice that always haunted the wulven's mind said and then the feeling of claustrophobia eased from Ash's mind while Sergej inspected the girl. Even though Ash wanted to stalk off, his legs wouldn't move. The Vampire king was keeping him there. Ash didn't let his fear take a hold of him; he used this time to think of a plan. Well he tried to. His mind became foggy and he lost all of his thoughts. He was incapable of thinking for the moment; Sergej was doing something to the Broken's mind to stop him from thinking freely. The wolf stood there in silence, no thoughts were running through his mind, no intentions of bolting for the exit. He just breathed and faced the open doorway of the darkened room. Only a moment went by and Sergej was out. He didn't look at Ash as he walked by, but the wolf began to follow him without Ash willing himself to move.
"I guess I could allow you think again, but you will only vex me further." The young looking vampire king said to the empty space in front of him as he walked, but clearly speaking to Ash who was behind him. Without any warning Ash was able to think again.
Don't you ever- Ash began to think but again his thoughts were interrupted by his master.
"Remember who the master is Wolf." Sergej warned Ash and turned in through a doorway.
"Now that you know what I am capable of, I think that will be enough punishment for you for one afternoon." He continued to say heading for his throne. Once he sat down onto the cushions he looked at Ash for the first time since he left the Svetocha's cell.
"Don't step out of line again Ash." The Vampire said looking Ash straight into his eyes. Or there will be hell to pay. Sergej finished off telepathically. The anger within the wolf boiled. He hated being controlled by this abomination. He hated being ordered around and being used like a helpless puppy. Sergej was cruel. No one should ever experience not being able to think, that makes people – and animals – who they are. The wolf shuddered and couldn't help but bow his head and think, yes master.
The god-like man dismissed Ash with a wave of his hand. "Be gone with you. I will call you when needed."
Ash calmly padded over to the door. When he was out of viewing range he angrily barked and thrashed himself against the wall. No! He barked. No, He can't do this to me! If Ash could, he would have begun to sob. This was on-going torture for him and Sergej was enjoying every minute of it. He needed the Order to find him, to take him away from this nightmare.
He stormed down the hall to only have Sergej tamper with his mind to make him calm down. Ash growled at the sudden calm that washed over him. Sergej had no right to tamper with his actions let alone his feelings.
Now that you know what I am capable of… echoed through Ash's bruised head. Now he realised he couldn't do anything, he couldn't save himself. All he could do was hope. Hope that help will come, one day. But while he waited for that day he had to do whatever Sergej wanted.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
In his cell he lay on the floor facing the open door with his head on his front paws. No one came to lock his door that morning. Maybe they had forgotten? Ash kept still for a few heart beats before he sat up on his haunches. He felt Sergej's hold on his mind ease a fraction. Ash tried, like the last morning, phasing back into his human self. But his fur wouldn't recede. He was stuck in wolf still. Ash rolled his eyes, typical. He thought. He hefted a mighty sigh admitting his defeat for now, and headed for the threshold of his cell's room. He paused right in the doorway and peered around to see if any blood suckers were around. No one. Not even a moth was flying around in the murky hallway. Ash tested a paw out into the hall, nothing happened. He figured he wasn't being watched and he padded all the way out. A morning of wandering I think. Ash thought to himself as he took in a deep breath. He then lent back onto his hind legs and stuck his rump up in the air to stretch. As he did he groaned like a lazy domestic dog that had just woken up. Ash got a shiver down his spine when he evened himself out again; I really need to figure out how to phase back. I'm starting to act like a dog.
