Abella never felt her heart beat. Normally if it did beat at all it was slow and non audible to the human ear. The sound of Makalo’s foot steps coming close the her chamber door jump started the beat.(Still not normal since they are dead)
The door slammed opened with such force that the wall cracked behind it. Abella knew he was upset but she had never seen him this way before.
“She was tried by the eternal nine and found guilty.” Abella said in a low tone as if she was talking to a feral animal and trying to keep it calm.
“You have no authority to call the nine.” He said through seething teeth.
“”Mimi wanted to be judged. I agreed to it.”
Her answer did not cool his raging anger.
“I have indulged you for too long.” Makalo swung his hand out and it landed across her face. Causing her lip to split and bleed.
“I will pass judgment on you. I decree you suffer the same fate as you accused mimi of.”
“You have lost your mind? I am your mate.”
“You should be happy to be burned. I can claim the old law and stake you. Causing you to be immobile. Or I could finally be rid of you and chop your head off.” A dark light of pleasure crossed his eyes at her fear.
“I apologized if I hurt you in any way.”
Makalo power was beating against her skin. “If you hurt me? IF! Don’t worry Abella you will not die tonight by my hand but you will feel pain.”
Before she was able to say a word. She stood in the center of the eternal flame. Makalo had stripped her of her outer garments leaving her in her under clothes. The doors were shut and he stood on the balcony above her.
“I tried you Abella for falsly accusing mimi. In doing so your sentence shall be passed.”
Makalo don’t do this. Please” She begged.
He looked at her and pressed the lever letting the lava flow through the pit. The heat climbed and began to burn her. Higher and higher the lava rose the more she suffered and screamed. Her hair singed and boned began to appear.
Makalo grabbed her and took out of the chanber. Befor passing into dark sleep he whispered. “Abella you will die a horrible death and I hope I witness it.” She slipped into consciousness.
“Come to me and take her. Give her blood and put her away from the light.”
Makalo practically dropped her body on the ground to be picked up. He knew he was not behaving properly for his people, he did not give a damn. Trapped into a mating with a sick creature as Abella had turned even him into a monster. Dreaming of way to kill her and how he would celebrate it.
He would have to wait. At least he bought Adorjan more time. That was the least he could do.
Creya made it back in time to see the six killers entering the place. Three from the front and three in the back door. She had to get to him without revealing who she was to the out side world.
Once they were fully inside she did a quick glance around to make sure no one could see her. No one was about. She ran toward the (inn) and allowed her hands and feet to transform. Allowing the claws to take purchase on the out side of the building. She scaled it in no time. She was outside of Adorjan’s window just when his room door was crashed into.
She seen Adorjan jump up as the first guy charged at him with club. He grabbed that arm and rotated one eighty to the right and you could hear it pop out the socket. The other’s wasted no time in charging at him.
Creya jumped through the glass window and grabbed the first man that crossed her path. She did not retract her claws. Instead she embedded it into the mans throat and ripped open. Leaving the flesh to hang and blood to spurt out.
Adorjan was being rushed by two short but husky men. One of them had a knife and it looked as if he managed to get a couple of good swiped at Adorjan.
Creya managed to kill two more of the bastards while Adorjan was trying to stay alive. When she seen the husky man to his left land a blow across his jaw it was her opportunity to take out the jerk on the right with the knife.
She slashed opened his back causing him to arch abnormally back from the pain. He turned with the knife still in his hand. Aiming it at Creya. He swiped at her but he noticed that his arm was not behaving properly.
She smiled realizing she severed a nerve and he was helpless. She pushed him to the floor. There was no sport in killing him it was better to let him suffer as an invalid.
Creya turned in time to see Adorjan land a nice upper cut on the second man. She stood off to side to see how he handled himself in a fight.
The man staggered back but recovered quickly and began to swing wildly at Adorjan. He duck and moved out of the way of the swings and suddenly with out warning he managed to grab the man by the throat and bit into him.
Creya was worried. This was definately a sign that his hunger is starting to open up and she needed to find Leo soon. She seen the other man’s body start to fall limp. She had to get him off before he drains him dry.
“Jon let him go. You cant drink from the dead.” She tried her best to pull him off but it was not working. A tall man with a head full of fire red curls pulled Adorjan off the dieing man and knocked him out.
“I see I found you guys first.”
“Yeah what took you so long?”
“Later, let’s go. More are coming.” He looked at the floor to see the man Creya left to bleed out moaning on the floor.
“Creya end him. Stop being a brat and kill him already.”
She went over to him and kicked his head causing it to snap back and kill him.
“There are you satisfied.”
Leo pick Adorjan up and the trio left. Barely missing the mob of men on their way to kill them.
