Just some fan fic. I do not own any of these characters!The things I can't say!
the third time, in five minutes, I looked into the mirror. I looked
good, sophisticated and calm. My hair was pulled up to show my long
neck. It had taken me a long time to get all the frizzles out. And I
wore a simple necklace as the finishing touch. As for cloths, I had
chosen for long tight fitting pants and a long wide t-shirt. The
sleeves came up to my elbows and gave my slim posture an even more
tender look! Lean and elegant.
I had my reasons for getting dressed up like this. I had a very special run.
That involved me, my looks and being a silent observer... Yeah, I know not really my piece of pie! I put on my special perfume Ivy got me to hide my scent. Tonight I was passing as a human. As an extra cover I would use an amulet to hide my redwood scent.
Ivy and Jenks where on a run and they didn't know I had my own run.
They called me after 'they' had left so the only thing I could do was leave a note and hope everything would be ok!
I was hired to follow some guy and keep an eye on him. Notting more, but I wasn't going to take any chances anyway. I took my bag and walked to the kitchen.
I loved my kitchen. I looked at my amulets and took a few to stun and two healing charms. I loaded my stun gun with sleepy potions and put it with my amulets.
If there would be any trouble that I couldn't handle with my charms or fists I would still have leyline magic.
The phone rang and I looked up. Who would be calling... I
walked to the phone.
"Vampiric charms you're talking to Rachel!"
"Rachel it's Jenks! We're in trouble!"
"What? Where are you? Why isn't Ivy calling?"
"Ivy is hurt! She got attacked! I was able to get away. They don't know I was there!"
" Can you follow them?"
"I did! We are at the zoo! They took her inside. I'm going to go and see where they went! Get your ass here so you can save Ivy's ass!"
The phone went dead. I looked at it.
I called off my run, took my things and ran to my car! Please let her be okay!
I don't know how many traffic rules I broke but I made a record time getting to the zoo.
It was the first time ever that I had to get Ivy out of any kind of trouble during a run, so I had no idea what kinda trouble was waiting for me.
What if something bad happened, what if they would kill her... twice!
I couldn't live without Ivy... could I. But if they killed her better to do it twice... if not she was so coming after me! My head was filled with doubt and I was thinking the worst first!
I didn't want her gone... I had things to tell her... things I haven't been able to say or understand! I loved her,... like friends,... I think! I know she knows that but I had never said it! Since she kissed me and declared I had to come to her... it was something I couldn't put aside!
"Rachel! We have to hurry! They put here in a cage!"
"A cage? Who? And what's in the cage?"
"Witches! Three of them. They attacked her without warning or even a reason! We were only there to observe!"
"Yes! They put here in the tiger cage Rach... She is still out cold...!"
" The tiger cage!! Where they put that wild tiger they found last month?"
The tiger had seemingly come out of nowhere a month ago! He had attacked four people and killed one of them! It had taken four attempts to get him to sleep and put him in the cage!
I started to run and noticed I was still wearing my slippers. O great! I was running around looking like a human diva, with charms and a gun and slippers on my feet!
"What are you wearing anyway?"
Jenks asked while he was flying backwards!
"After you two left I got a phone call to watch some guy!"
"And you had to look human so you wouldn't scare the people...?"
"Yes! How do you know?"
"Cause it's the same run 'we' where on. Only they didn't know I would be there!"
"So they should know that I'm coming..."
"Rachel... get down!"
Jenks called out, when I felt someone pulling the nearby leyline and I crunched down.
I didn't feel or hear anything. I only shouted 'Rombus' and set my circle!
I stored more leyline magic and started to build up a counter spell.
I had practiced with Al and I knew that a demon curse would be much more effective but I didn't want any smut on my soul just to get these guys!
The three witches where circling around me and they were looking at each other.
O, no way I was going to let them drain my circle! If they where going to try I was going to burn their chi's to ash. I changed the spell as I felt they were draining my circle and at the same time using that magic in attack!
I finished the spell and I let it slip into my circle. They absorbed it before they could do anything and then I called out the trigger word, "fligas"! Maybe they didn't notice it at first but I had blocked their connection with their familiars as long as they where connected to me. Then I started to pull more power from the leyline! I felt my chi overflow and then I pushed it to the witches! The attack on my circle stopped but I had them. They couldn't disconnect from my circle and I pushed an other wave of leyline magic through!
I saw them as they all fell to their knees! I knew what kind of pain they where feeling.
been through the same with Al! With that thought I stopped what I was
doing. I wouldn't want anybody to endure everything I had been
through! They all gasped for air. I took out my gun and put them to
sleep as soon as my circle was down.
"Rach... are you okay? That was freaking scary and the biggest power play I ever saw you do! What did you do?"
I dragged the witches to the side and bound them together using the silver straps I got from Glenn to block their magic.
"They started to drain my circle to use that energy to attack me. So I cast a spell to block their connection with their familiars for the time they where connected to me! And then I gave them a boost of leyline magic!"
I sounded dead! I did something I would never want a person to endure! It was in self-defence but still... I felt bad about it.
"Rach... you did it to survive! Come on we still have to get Ivy!"
I got up and while I was running I took my cell phone and called Glenn. I didn't have time to explain everything so as soon as we had arrived at the cage and Jenks had picked the lock I put the phone down and left Jenks behind to explain the rest.
I saw Ivy and got scared. She had lost blood! Her head was bleeding and the cut in her arm didn't look so well. I had only one chance to get to her. I saw the tiger slowly circle his prey and waiting for her to move. I had to get to her and draw a circle in a matter of seconds. I counted down in my head...
Three... two... one... I started to run and lost my grip on the sand. 'These slippers aren't made for running' I thought as I went down. I saw the tiger take a jump at me and I threw a high volt of magic. It hit him in his flight and I rolled away. He landed and fell. I made my way to Ivy looking at the tiger trying to get up. I pulled her away from the stone and drew a circle in the sand as fast as I could. By the time I called 'rombus' the tiger was up and ready to attack!
Well wasn't this pretty! I was trapped in a cage in my own circle with Ivy and she was bleeding to death! It was little short of a miracle that I still had my bag and I looked in it. I took a pain amulet and I invoked it with my blood. I put it around Ivy's neck and then I took her as gently as possible in my arms.
"Ivy please wake up!"
My hand touched her face and followed the curve of her chin, up to her ear and then carefully touched her hair as I put it to the side of her face so I could see the damage.
A wounded vampire could be afraid and dangerous so I was very careful while touching her. I could still feel her heartbeat and I kept looking at her.
I looked up and I saw Jenks hovering above my circle!
"They're on the way! How is she?"
"Alive! But still bleeding! I have no idea what to do! If she keeps losing blood...!"
I swore to myself that I would practice healing spells as soon as we got home!
"Ivy... please wake up! Come on… there are too many things I have to tell you, things I can't tell... I ... Please! Don't leave me alone!"
"I couldn't leave you even if I wanted to..."
It was only a whisper but I wasn't dreaming. I looked down and I saw her opening her eyes!
"O bless you! How do you feel? Any pain?"
"No but you put a charm on me... didn't you...?"
"Yes I did!"
"Damn how much blood did I lose? I feel so weak!"
"Stay down! You are still bleeding!"
"Take off the charm Rach... I can't feel when I'm going to pass out!"
"Why would you want to feel that?"
"Because I'll pass out by loss of blood and when that happens..."
I took of the charm and she gasped for air!
"God Rach what kind of dose did you make it?"
"Sorry I only make good ones."
OK even when she was hurt I couldn't let her stamp all over my good work...
Ivy tried to grin but the pain didn't let her.
"Is there help coming? Where are we...? And why are we in a circle?"
I looked angrily at the tiger outside my circle and Ivy followed my gaze.
all that needed to be said! It was crap! Everything was! Us having to
wait until Glenn arrived, Ivy bleeding to death... Me doing
"Ivy... I don't know how long they are going to take to get here... and I don't know what to do!"
"You are here! That is the most important thing!"
She took my hand and I pulled her closer! I looked at her torn clothes, took a piece of it and pulled it loose! I looked at her arm and thought of a movie I once saw!
"This is going to hurt..."
Ivy looked at me and closed her eyes. I took the piece of clothing and strapped it around her arm. As I pulled it close and put a knot in it she gasped for air.
"Sorry! It's done!"
"Rach... I'm going to pass out... I think..."
"No you are not! You're staying awake and you're going to look into my eyes!"
Then it hit me she needed blood... I could give her blood! Couldn't I... Wouldn't it help?
"Rach... no... I'm not going to bite you!"
How could she have guessed what I was thinking...
"Come on! You are dying! This is the one thing I could do for you!"
"It wouldn't be any good! It takes time to get everything in my system and time is something we don't have!"
"No! I'll bite you when I'm ready... and when you are..."
I know what she meant... I should come to her when I was ready to share not only my blood but also my body and soul... my love!
"Glenn! Over here! Where the hell is Jenks?"
"He's with the witches you bound! Good work! How's Ivy"
"She is dying! Get your ass here and get that tiger to sleep so I can get her to the hospital!"
I looked down at Ivy but she didn't respond.
"Fuck! Glenn she's out! She's lost too much blood!"
Glenn grabbed his phone and started calling.
"They're bringing enough blood! And the guards are on their way to put the tiger down!"
My heart was beating like crazy, why did this have to happen? All I could do was wait.
It was killing me... she looked so pale... I touched her face and bent forward. As softly as I could I pressed my lips on hers and kissed her. I didn't know why but it felt like the right thing to do.
"Rach... What are you doing? Let your circle down! The tiger is down and the ambulance is here!"
I looked up and I saw Jenks. I took my circle down and a few seconds later I was taken away by Glenn and Ivy was looked after!
