Sympathy For The Devil (Beginnings)
Disclaimer: Okay I'm only going to say this once (I DON'T OWN A DAMN THING)
"Yuna…" A man called into what seemed like deserted bus. Within seconds a brunette haired head poked out. She turned towards the man who had called her name and nearly screamed. "Buddy, oh my god!" She instantly jumped out of the bus and came to the aid of her friend, "Are you okay?" she asked. She moved closer to him in an attempt to help him stand but he shook his head, "We've got more men in worst shape than me". Yuna gave him a confused look. "Go get some medical supplies and hurry," he ordered. Yuna quickly nodded and ran back into the bus.
A white haired woman stares out of her second story office window. In her mouth was a cigar that she was smoking in a futile effort to calm her already frantic nerves. She grunted disapprovingly as some ash fell onto her dark green suit. She brushed it off and resumed her little look outside her mansion window. Unconsciously her hand came up to straighten out the silver little symbol of Yevon, which was pinned to the top of her tie. "Sir Paine," a voice called behind her.
Paine turned around to see her humble butler standing there with a slight look of concern "Yes Baralai?" she answered. The butler bowed at his lord. "We have just gotten word that the troops from division D-11 have been called back." The butler ended with a slight chuckle, "It seems that they had been attacked by their own fallen comrades." Paine bit down on her cigar "Those fools," she hissed turning back around to her window "It doesn't matter how many troops they send, all they'll be doing is sending that blasted vampire priest a snack". She let out a sigh and turned back around to Baralai "We'll if the police can't handle this we'll have to" she smashed the cigar into the ashtray "Send him". Baralai chuckled and smiled at Paine "He is already on his way milady".
Yuna and Buddy tried to help everyone to the best of their abilities. Yuna helped to carry a few and tended to their wounds. Buddy however had been trying to ignore his wound but couldn't take it any more. He leaned himself against a tree and grabbed the arm where his "dead" friend Brother had bitten him and looked like he had sucked some of Buddy's blood. At first it felt like nothing but now his head was spinning and he felt strange.
He looked at Yuna as she struggled to help everyone and through his pain and confusion managed a smile. Yuna had been like a 'kid' sister to him and especially loved to tease her with her ever popular name of "Kitten". He saw her bi-colored eyes flash towards him and could hear her footsteps as she walked closer to him. Suddenly a sharp pain shot through Buddy's stomach. With a groan and a mumble Buddy fell onto the soft soil. He heard Yuna's footsteps quicken as she ran towards him.
Yuna ran to Buddy's side. Grabbing his arm she could see looked like bite marks "What in Spira" she reached into her kit and pulled out some peroxide. She sprayed some onto the bite marks she heard Buddy let out a soft sigh. "Yuna" she heard him sigh. Yuna didn't bother looking up into his face. She just focused on healing his wound "Hang on Buddy" she said to him "Reinforcements are on their way". She got no response from Buddy but didn't worry about it. She then heard something moving behind her and turned around and to her horror she saw something that just couldn't be "Ma…Maroda". A figure stepped out of the shadows. It looked in many ways like a gruesome monster for its flesh was rotting its eyes were black and the blue D-11 uniform was ripped and tattered. Yuna shook her head in disbelief as she took a step away from the monster "B…but you're dead".
The monster opened its mouth which hung loosely showing its big blood stained teeth. Yuna shrieked and stepped away from it. Then suddenly Buddy started to move as well. She looked down at her friend and screamed he too was now looking like the monster in front of her. Yuna ran into bushes in the direction of the bus but came to an abrupt stop when she saw what had happened. "No" her whole team had become these lifeless zombies and was now viciously fighting over the remains of a body she couldn't even see. It didn't take very long for one of the monsters to notice her it let out a lurch as it started to step closer to her. Yuna quickly pulled out her gun "Please don't" she begged "Please don't make me shoot you".
The monster didn't pay any attention to her warning and stalked closer and closer to her. Yuna closed her eyes "Forgive me" she pulled on the trigger and a shot ran through the air. She opened her eyes and almost wished she hadn't. She had shot the monster but it was still standing. It was currently feeling around the new hole that was in its chest. There was no indication of blood or anything it was almost like it was completely empty. Once the monster looked sure that it was okay it once again started moving towards Yuna. The brunette let out a scream and once again ran away from them.
A figure walked through the dark and lonely woods. On his head was a large dark blue hat that had specks of blonde hair peeking out from the bottom. He was wearing a large coat of the same color. His eyes were covered by a pair of red lenses which were attached to his sunglasses. His coat covered his whole body and ran down to his ankles. The sleeves stopped at the wrists were the rest of his hand was covered by a pair of white gloves which held a peculiar symbol on them. Inside the trench coat was an old fashioned suit that was topped off with a large red tie that swayed in the wind. A smile crept across his face which revealed his fangs which were poking out of his upper lip "What a perfect night" he stopped to look up at the blue moon that hung up in the sky "It's nights like these that make me want to suck some blood" He then continued on his way deeper into the woods.
Yuna ran as fast as her feet could possibly carry her. She ran until she was sure no one was following her. She stopped to take a breath and to wipe the sweat that was collecting on her fore head. She still held her gun in her left hand and was just about ready to put it away when she heard something behind her. She quickly whirled around to see that it was another one of those monsters. Yet this one was a women…well it was wearing a dress other than that it didn't look much like any human women Yuna has ever seen. The monster stumbled towards her its arms stretched out towards her and it looked ready to take a hefty bite out of her. Yuna once again raised her gun at the monster "It's not human" she couldn't bring herself to pull the trigger. The monster was dangerously close to her now.
Before Yuna knew what happened the monster let out an agonizing screech. That's when Yuna saw it. A hand ripped through the monster's torso. The monster soon started to evaporate in front of her eyes dwindling down to nothing but dust. The dust soon got swept away by the wind revealing to Yuna the man who had saved her.
Yuna could immediately tell there was something strange about this man. He stood there covered in dark blue clothes that didn't even look from this century. There was a smirk on his face that sent a shiver down her spine and the glasses he had on covered his eyes didn't make him look any safer. He was wearing knee high boots and his coat was swaying in the direction of the wind. Exposing to her the old looking tuxedo that was hidden underneath the coat. He had on a big ribbon looking tie that was also bending to the wind's will. Yuna kept her gun raised at the man. She couldn't take any chances. The man chuckled at her and finally spoke "Beautiful night isn't it police girl." Yuna lowered her gun but still looked at him confused. He smiled then showing to her the fangs that were on each side of his jaw "Especially if you're a blood sucker". He smiled at her showing his canine fangs. Yuna immediately raised her gun and fired at him.
The man made no attempt to dodge the bullet. Instead he just stood there smirking as the bullet ripped through his shoulder. Blood flew every direction and his arm looked ready to fall off. But what Yuna saw next nearly made her heart stop. The sprayed blood never touched the ground it stopped just inches away from it. And then swirled around the man's body before reinserting itself in his rapidly healing shoulder. Yuna gasped and stepped away from the man, "You're…you're not human." She then whirled around and ran as fast as possible.
A smile spread across the man's face as he watched the girl run away from him. "Why would you shoot me if I was human?" A light chuckle escaped his lips as he let his glasses slip down to the tip of his nose. So he could get a better look at her.
Yuna went from running to a fast walk. Although she made sure to keep an eye on what was behind her, "What on earth am I doing?" she said to herself, "I don't know anywhere that's safe around here." She stopped when she noticed she had stepped on some soft soil. A shiver ran down Yuna's spine as she saw where she had ended up. "A graveyard, this is not what I needed." However in the middle of the graveyard she could see a small church and she at last figured that was safe.
She quickly ran across the graveyard and in front of the church doors. She pulled out her gun just to make sure. Then she gave the old church doors a good shove and they practically flew open. Yuna held up her gun and walked into the church. Her light feet didn't make a sound as she stepped into the church's carpet.
The church was small and dark. Yuna couldn't even see the church benches for they were shrouded in darkness. Out in the distance she heard a door open. And out of the darkness a priest stepped out. He slowly made his way to the altar. Yuna lowered her gun. "Good evening father," she said.
The father didn't answer her. He merely touched Yuna with what she presumed was the bible. "You're scared of the ghouls aren't you my child?" he said finally turning to her. Yuna lowered her gun. Then stared at him in confusion, "Ghouls?" The priest slowly started to make his way towards Yuna. "Yes, after a vampire feeds off a human that isn't a virgin or of the opposite sex, then that human goes under the vampires control as a ghoul." Before Yuna knew what was happening she felt herself being pulled towards the priest.
She literally flew into his arms. The priest caught her and smiled at her. Revealing to her his fangs he started to unzip the jacket of her uniform. "But it would be such a waste to turn you into a ghoul," he said as he massaged her collar bone "The blood that runs within you is sweeter than you could imagine." Yuna was in a dreamy state her eyes desperately wanted to shut but she wouldn't let them. She desperately wanted to move this man away from her but her body wasn't functioning anymore all she could manage was a weak "Stop". The priest paid no heed to her and merely opened his mouth so his fangs could grow to their normal length. He lowered his mouth to sink his fangs into her sweet blood.
The church doors came flying off their hinges as they were reduced to nothing but splinters. This made the priest stop before he could do anything to Yuna. He looked up to see a figure bathed in darkness. He could see the glint of the figures sunglasses and its rough out line. A growl soon came from the figure "I've had just about enough of you," he then stepped into the church making a loud clanking sound erupt around the walls, "God damn punk".
Yuna felt her body being repositioned and soon found her back being pressed against the vampire priest's chest making her face the stranger. The figure stepped into the moonlight causing Yuna to gasp as she recognized it as the monster she had shot outside. But there was something different about him this time. The amused smirk that he had with Yuna was now gone, in its place was a look of anger that almost made Yuna more scared of him, than the vampire who was holding her captive.
She could hear the vampire sneer behind her and let out an arrogant, "What are you supposed to be?" The man's anger seemed to almost disappear as he looked at the vampire and then a smile soon crept across his lips making Yuna wonder for a second if he was sane. The man chuckled and raised his head towards the moons light. Revealing to Yuna the strands of gold hair that ran down the sides of his hair "My name is Tidus, I am merely a servant of the Hellsing Organization." His eyes glinted in the moon light with what seemed like madness. "My job is to deal with trash like you," he ended his introduction with a slight laugh.
Yuna felt the vampire's hand move from her waist to her neck. He held her close to him as if for protection, "Trash like me?" he snorted out at Tidus, "Do you have any idea who you're talking to?" As if to prove his point the vampire proudly displayed his fangs as if hoping Tidus would flee from just that.
However Tidus didn't seem to even notice the empty warning. And he soon started to walk towards them making the priest move back a little. "No, you're less than trash you're scum," Tidus teased. His mouth moved back into that insane grin he seemed to almost be enjoying this, "And look at you in those priest robes you look like some sad carnival reject, don't you have any shame? I thought scum could at least feel shame," his taunting continued as he drew ever closer to Yuna and her captor.
Yuna could've sworn she heard the monster growl behind her, "I think you should die now." With those words figures rose out of the dark benches. Looking at them Yuna came to realize they were her fallen comrades who have now just become servants to this vampire. The church soon echoed in clicks and groans as the ghouls cocked their guns at Tidus. Something caught Yuna's eye and she turned to see the body that was once her cousin. "Brother" a tear slid down her eye as she looked at the unholy beast in front of her.
Tidus, however, kept on with his taunting as he walked ever closer to the two. He seemed to have completely ignored the ghouls that were now around him. "You're a weakling who creates slaves to do his dirty work," he spat with utter disgust in his voice, "A fool so incompetent he can't do anything on his own." Finally he stopped walking and his blue leather duster swayed slightly against the floor. A deep and menacing growl that sent shivers down Yuna's spine came from him as he finally finished his taunting, "You aren't worthy for the lowest pits of hell," he growled.
Yuna could practically feel the anger emitting from the priest as he turned to the ghouls who were once men. "Just kill him," he ordered. And without a second to lose every ghoul in the church opened fire on Tidus. Yuna gasped as she saw his body being riddled in bullets. She nearly screamed when she saw a side of his face fly completely off and his hand was soon shot off from the rest of his body. With a snap of the priests fingers the ghouls finally stopped their firing.
Once the bullets stopped Tidus's body fell onto its knees then finally fell face first into its own blood making a sickening "Whack" emit through the air. Yuna could hear the priest laugh at his victory. But she didn't really care she just put her face down. There was no hope for her now she didn't know what she was thinking when she thought Tidus would be able to rescue her. He was after all only one man…
A maniacal laughter soon filled the air and to all their horrors Tidus's body soon started moving again. Yuna and the priest looked down in amazement as Tidus's blood, which was all over the floor soon started to move back to his body. And the severed arm soon turned into mist and reappeared back in its original place. The figure soon started to rise to its feet once again. And Yuna couldn't help but shriek when she saw Tidus push his hat up so it was no longer covering his face. "This isn't possible!" Tidus smiled at the bewildered priest. "Bullets aren't going to do you any good," he said. He opened his mouth to reveal his fangs. Yuna couldn't help but notice they were longer than the priests.
She could hear the priest gasp as realization dawned on him, "You're one of us?" Tidus merely smiled and reached into his blue leather duster. And when it came back out it pulled out a long silver pistol. The priest shrieked when he saw this and looked at his waiting ghouls "Kill him already". The ghouls once again fired but this time their bullets didn't seem to have much effect on him. He merely outstretched his gun at the ghoul's direction and fired.
Yuna looked on with amazement as she saw this 'magic' gun at work. With merely one shot three ghouls would be taken out. She also noticed that the bullets were in fact hitting him but they weren't even damaging him. "He…ain't human," she mumbled once again but this time it was not in fear but more in astonishment.
"What...what are you doing?" she heard the priest shriek; "We're both vampires." Once Tidus was done he loaded another magazine into the gun. "You act more like a cockroach than a proper vampire," he spat back, "I can't stand you're kind" he used his mouth to pull back the guns top half. "You don't have the self respect to be a proper vampire." He then pointed the gun at the priest's direction "13mm steel rounds alloyed with silver melted from a sign of Yevon, were melted into the bullets for this gun." Although his face was covered in the darkness of his hat you could tell the vampire was smiling "Prepare yourself for an eternity in damnation Father"
Once again Yuna found herself being pulled closer to the vampire. "You'll have to kill the girl to get to me," he sneered, "And I don't think you can do that plaything of the humans." Yuna could see slight hesitation in Tidus's eyes as she realized what she had been dragged into. Her eyes locked with his and she soon found herself getting lost on them "Police Girl" she heard his voice inside her head "Yes" she almost hypnotically answered. "I'm going to shoot my gun now and the bullet will tear through your lungs before it hits the vampires heart" he was silent for a minute as if pondering something "Do you want to come with me?" Yuna shuddered as he said those words in a voice that almost sounded caring. She was soon brought back to reality when the priest screamed, "Are you listening to me?" It seemed he had been hoping to convince Tidus to let him live.
Yuna looked at the man in front of her. He was still holding his gun up towards them but he looked as if he was waiting for an answer. Yuna nodded her head, "Yes," she finally answered. She then closed her eyes waiting for what she knew was coming.
The firing of a gun could be heard then Yuna felt something tearing through her and exiting out her back. She could hear the vampire scream as it too was shot but she wasn't really paying attention to it. She flew back a little and landed on the altar. She couldn't really feel the pain anymore nor could she really tell if she was still alive but even through her numbness she could see Tidus standing over her. She must've mumbled his name because he soon knelt next to her and took her into his arms. She then felt her head being laid back and…gasped as she felt a somewhat joyful sensation on her neck.
She saw Tidus pull away and then she felt strange. She felt her body being repositioned as she saw Tidus bite into his own hand and slowly put the bleeding organ next to her mouth "Drink" she heard him say and she did. Letting the cold liquid slip down her throat she could practically hear her heart beat and to her confusion it was getting slower and slower. She let out a distressed gasp but was soon silenced by Tidus's voice, "Calm yourself police girl it is merely you're body dying" That wasn't very comforting at all but there wasn't anything she could do. So she just listened as her heart finally came to a stop along with her pulse.
After it was all over Tidus found a blanket and wrapped her in it and carried her out of the church where Yuna the human died. The being that exited the church was Yuna the monster.
Okay let me do some explaining this story has been burning a hole in my skull for awhile now. So I kind of postponed all my other stories and just started working on this one. I'm pretty much done with it now so im going to start updating this one once a week and start working on my other neglected stories once again.
Also this fanfic is based on Hellsing and Dracula which I am currently into at the moment so if you recognize this chappie that's why. So don't go around screaming plagiarism I'm giving credit where credit is due. Also Tidus is going too be OOC in this fic as well a few other characters so no one needs to inform me about it cause I already know.
To my faithful reviewers from my other stories …sorry for the delay and hope you enjoy this one okay. I picked Halloween night to post it
I'd also like to thank Spades for being kind enough to proof read these for me.
