It was a little after twelve in the morning. A red-haired woman ran down a deserted street. Her breath showed in frantic, white puffs.
The woman seemed to be in her mid-twenties and she wasn't dressed for the weather. She wore a teal tube top that exposed her stomach, a black miniskirt and stilettos. Goosebumps prickled along her uncovered arms as she ran.
'Why did I have to go clubbing tonight. Why alone?' the woman thought as she ran down the street. She passed by dark houses. The streets were empty and the only sound was the clak-clak of the woman's heels against the ground. How she managed to run in such footwear was beyond her, she just ran.
After a few minutes she slowed to a stop. The woman looked around but saw no one. She moved off of the road towards a nearby building, hoping to find a phone in there. As she walked, she sighed in relief. "Oh thank God."
"God isn't here," a voice whispered from behind her as an arm wrapped around her waist, "only me."
The woman opened her mouth to scream but a hand clamped over her mouth. Something wet pressed against her neck and she felt a sharp pain. The woman tried to break free of the grasp that held her, but to no avail. The pain disappeared only to be replaced by a slight, sucking pressure.
The woman still struggled but her energy was quickly diminishing. Her vision blurred with hot tears as she realized she wasn't going to get away. As her vision began to darken, whispered against the hand that muffled her voice, "V…vampire."
The only response she received was a cool chuckle against her neck.
Envy released the woman and she fell to the ground with a dull thud. Her eyes were halfway open and glassy. The green-haired vampire gave the woman's body a kick but there was no response. Envy snorted.
"Good snack Envy?" a cool voice asked.
Envy turned and looked at his companion. "Nothing special. Just another worthless human," Envy replied with a shrug.
The dark haired woman chuckled softly as she crosses her arms under her breasts and leaned against a wall of the building the human had been attempted to enter. "I have some news for you."
The vampire placed his hands on his hips and regarded the woman with mild curiosity. "Does it pertain to the boy, Lust?"
Lust smiled. "How'd you guess?" she cooed.
"Because if you were bothering me with anything else, Lust, I think I'd have to kill you," Envy snorted, violet eyes narrowing. "So, what's this news?"
Lust, seemingly unperturbed by her companion's threat, said, "Mustang has him."
"I know that. I was there when he was taken."
"And he turned the boy," Lust finished smoothly.
Rage flash through Envy's eyes and his face contorted. Suddenly his left hand was in the wall, dangerously close to Lust's head, fragments of brick dropping to the pavement below. "What the hell do you mean?" he hissed.
"Apparently," Lust began coolly, uncaring of the nearby danger, "Mustang made a deal with the boy. He'd save the kid's brother, if he'd become a vampire. I'm guessing he's figured out your plans and decided that immortality was the only way to protect him."
Envy pulled away, his displeasure obvious on his face, as he crossed his arms over his chest. "Do they know about Sloth?" When Lust nodded, his frown deepened. "Does he know?"
"I don't believe so," Lust said with a bored shrug. "It appears that Mustang doesn't want the boy to know anything."
Envy was silent for a moment, before asking, "Has the boy realized what he is? Has Mustang realized it, for that matter?"
"It doesn't appear so, in either case. Mustang simply believes that the boy's his Only."
The emerald haired vampire stiffened. "Fuck. That is not good. If that brat accepts his role as Mustang's Only, he'll be useless to us."
There was a silence between the two for a few moments before Lust asked, "What do you want me to do?"
"Contact Greed," Envy said the name with a sneer, "and have him use those Chimeras of his to create enough chaos that will keep Mustang away from his Only."
Lust moved away from the wall. "Anything else?"
Envy looked down at the dead woman. "Tell that person that we'll be getting what we want, no matter what."
A/N: Yes, I know it's short. That's why I posted it so quickly! Anyway, this was the last chapter I posted back on my other account before I switched here. Next chapter will be the first new chapter. However, since I will be moving in 2 weeks, the next chapter won't be out until late July/early August. Happy reading!
