‘Things are going from bad to worse then.’

Zachary’s head began to spin as he listened to the words of the male fallen, knowing that things were serious if Raul had been defeated only to bounce back this fast. Zachary was trying to figure out how Raul might have figured out in the first place, after all at this point only the Embassy should know aside from Raul himself. Which meant…… Madame Green!

“Tch… figured she’d be the one to start shit right off the damn bat!”

Zachary let out a deep growl, the growl of a demon, as his hand lashed out sideways, hitting the wall with a thud. Sure, the was angry, but this was no time to get worked up. With a deep breath, he reigned in that anger and focused back onto the two fallen. As a Nephalem, he was actually human despite being the offspring of an Angel and Demon. But no one knew that… yet; they were going to get a crash course soon if Raul got here any time soon. Zachary followed the male into the room, nodding at his words while closing his eyes and gripping his sword with both hands.

With a firm pull, Zachary freed the blade from its sheath, while at the same time unleashing both his Holy and Hell-fire at the same time, mixing the two together. Both flames erupted on his body and the blade, the tip of his tail burning while twin horns of blue flame formed on his forehead. The flames were both of the same mystical blue, unnaturally calming and disturbing at the same time thanks to the mixture of the two opposing Flames. The two fallen would have recognized the two flames for what they were entirely, Hell and Heaven mixed into one. Was that enough to give him away? Who knew.

“If we’re needing to prepare, then I’ll be sure to be ready for him. Valmont and Nicholas may be well on their way, but who knows if they’ll get here in time. Might I ask for your assistance sir?”

Zachary said as he began to walk outside, still slowly drawing the sword from its sheath. Once he had made it outside, he finished drawing the weapon and whipped it down, causing a small wall of flames to blaze between him and the home of the two fallen. It wouldn’t burn the fallen or Bandit, but if Raul got there and tried to get in… well he’d be in for a surprise considering that those flames were made to keep Raul out, and Bandit in. They didn’t burn, they simply repulsed. At least, for that intended purpose they did.

Re: [RP]Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen

 

“What’s in me?” The blonde looked at the woman, a terrible panic coursing through her body.. “Am I going to die?!” The thief’s voice rose in pitch with those words, breathing hard… Oh, but it was so much worse. A terrible cry came from Bandit’s lips, the child within Bandit feeling her distress as the aura of power from her abdomen only grew. “I’m.. Oh, god!” The blonde buried her face into the pillow that she held against her, the thoughts of panic racing through her head. How could this have happened? “With his.. Oh, oh.. I am already dead..” Bandit did not have it in her to kill the innocent child developing in her womb.. but the terrible truth was that she had Raul’s child. No matter how she tried to run now, the child would always tie her to him. Escape was not an option at this point.

Nevermind, what would her son/daughter be like? What type of child could spawn from Raul? What type of child could spawn from her? A mix of that could not be good, surely.. Bandit looked up at the ceiling, lifting her head and breathing out slowly. So much stress… Her body couldn’t keep taking this. Birth was so far away, it felt, but would this child be different because of its race and all attached? Would pregnancy be quicker? How would it grow? How could she care for a child with powers when she had none… assuming the child did develop powers.. How weak would it be? How strong? So many questions.. Bandit wiped her tears off of her face, attempting to appear somewhat composed as she slowly fell apart within, power from the child steadily growing with each wave of distress its mother felt..

Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen

Poor Bandit. She was now terrified beyond belief. Wondering what was inside her, when there was that moment that the unborn child made itself known. “Am I going to die?!” The girl was beside herself. Amala rushed to her and tried to pull her into an embrace. “No no…no you are not going to die, Bandit. We would never let that happen.” Amala’s words were meant to be reassuring, but there was no mistaking the panic in her eyes. The realization of the fact that Bandit was pregnant, sent the girl into a melt down. Amala released her as the girl sank onto the bed and buried her face into the pillow nearest her. Amala clasped her hands together, deeply troubled and trying to think of something that she could say, that could stop the girl losing it completely. All she cold do was nod, when Bandit started to blurt that the baby was Raul’s. No matter where she went, she would forever be tied to that man, so long as the child within her continued to live.

What choices did she have now? The child was the spawn of Raul the Black. That alone would send shivers through the strongest person, not to mention those with magic that could see and feel the power. Amala’s eyes cast down at Bandit’s stomach. A horrid thought going through her mind. There was one way to stop the madness and that was to cut the child out and destroy it. Would Amala even do such a thing? To put her own life ahead of that of this unborn and innocent child? She could not help but think that if this child was born, it could destroy them all, if it were to be taken by it’s father.

No doubt, the look on Amala’s face would be a giveaway for what she was thinking. Her heart was pounding hard as she weighed up the options. Habib was outside now with Zachary, who had already unsheathed his weapons, in preparation for what would be a great battle. Would the Ambassador and Nicholas arrive in time to help fend off the Warlock, who would now be enraged beyond belief, that not only was Bandit taken from him, but his future son or daughter? He knew….and there would be no stopping him now.

Heavy paws pounded into the earth, ragged breathing and saliva dripping from its maw, the Black wolf was now racing up the mountain. In it’s heart it could feel the connection, the bond growing and he knew it was definitely that of his child. Bandit was there…at the very top and that Fallen was going to regret taking her from him. Howling, he raced on tearing through the forest and then up the last part of the mountain path. Long shaggy black hair was flowing behind him as the eyes of evil were now glowering with an intensity that was filled with fury and hate. He could see himself, tearing out the jugular of Habib and drinking his blood like wine when he reached the top. At last the last rise and the wolf leaped up and over a large rock to land on top. Looking down now on Zach and Habib. The loud growl with menacing white fangs dripping were the first indications that Bandit had been found. The wolf was about three times the size of a normal one, and it pawed at the rock with large grey claws.

 

https://i0.wp.com/media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mdiajovrAq1qf7nowo1_500.gif

Out of the forest the two on horseback, Valmont and Nicholas came charging on their horses. The heavy sound of horse hooves meant the cavalry had arrived. They were coming now up the last track, right in behind Raul the Black.

Habib’s wings unfurled in full as he stood his ground in front of the entrance to the temple.

“She’s not yours, Raul. Leave this place.”

The wolf jumped down off the rock and then spun and turned back into the true form of the Warlock. A terrible look on his face as he stared down Habib, then saw Zachary.

“I AM NOT LEAVING WITHOUT MY WOMAN AND CHILD!” He threw up his right hand and a massive blast of energy spiraled out and hit Habib squarely in the chest, sending him back hurtling towards the ground. The fallen’s wings fell back as her cartwheeled back and hit one of the stone columns of the temple. There was a horrid cracking sound, like that of bone, as Habib lay motionless.

Pulling up his horse, Valmont dismounted and waited for Nicholas to join him. They could see the Warlock had already started the battle, taking out the Fallen with relative ease. It was clear that with the knowledge that Bandit carried his child, he was not simply going to walk away.

With Zachary guarding the entrance to the temple, and Valmont with Nicholas in behind the Warlock, they had him surrounded. Who would make the next move?

It was silent as the wind blew around the two galloping around, though hearing the patters in the ground from a distance, he could tell Raul had already made it. That was the thing with Nicholas, his hearing was 100% on point with vibrations on the ground so, he was usually never wrong. Once they had entered the area, right behind Raul he’d stayed on his horse. Hearing a rather loud crack and a thump to the ground, Nicholas shivered some. This man could take down one in such a simple move, he’d sure be a tough opponent. Seeing Valmont get down, he’d follow in pursuit and dismount, standing next to him. 

” Right on time, huh.” The man said to Valmont, trying to be a bit humorous but, this wasn’t the time and he knew it. 

Something changed a bit about Nicholas, if you observed him closely. His skin was now molding layers upon layers, thickening and getting much harder. His Dermal armor coming into play, he was able to thicken his skin to withstand attacks, pain or harm but, it wasn’t invincible. Some things tended to get through or it would wear out after a while and fall off. Once it was done, he’d take position next to Valmont. He wouldn’t risk getting hit and ending up like the other person, the armor would help in the long run. Granted, his other was poison and he had to be careful where he released that, for not wanting to harm the others. His eyes scanned to see Zachary and then they went back towards Raul, him waiting on any order.

Re: [RP]Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen

‘Boy do they have good timing… as if.’

https://i0.wp.com/data2.whicdn.com/images/22688908/large.png

Zachary’s thoughts were directed at Valmont, who arrived only moments after Raul. Greaaaaaaat timing guys. Well done indeed. Well, that was nothing compared to Zachary at this point. Once the male fallen was sent flying Zachary froze, his eyes becoming hidden from sight by his long black hair. Valmont and Nicholas were about to be in for a big surprise. Valmont knew, he knew very well just how much power that Zachary held inside of him. But the problem was… he’d never seen it before, before now anyway. Zachary’s clothing and hair, everything began rustling softly as though some wind was swirling wildly around him. Oh boy… he was pissed. Zachary’s mouth moved, after what seemed to be ages, saying two simple words moments before his body erupted in that tower of white flames and light.

“Seraphin… Praestantia!”

The blue flames now turned white, and the light, that swirled around Zachary’s body was blindingly bright. Seraphin Praestantia, Seraph Superiority. Zachary took his Holy Flames and his Light and infused his body with it, calling upon the power of his mother in full to take on the form of an Archangel temporarily, calling on the full power of such a creature that could match even a Prince of Hell. Raul will have realized a bit too late his mistake just before Zachary’s new form was revealed.

https://i1.wp.com/i.gyazo.com/61d5079e41e4c77bfd01807e0fc6f77a.png

It seemed that Zachary was simply standing there with his face hidden, but to Valmont and Nicholas behind Raul, there was a change. Zachary’s new angelic form had appeared there behind Raul, his left hand already reaching to grasp the Warlock’s shoulder despite the fact that there was an afterimage in front of the male. Should Zachary have succeeded in grasping that Warlock’s shoulder, without a sound her would have thrown the male into the air, only to reappear next to him and slam a foot into his stomach, knocking the breath from him as he sent the male blasting back into the ground with the perfect amount of force that would have made the earth erupt into shards of shrapnel.

Zachary wasn’t toying around anymore. Raul had a choice, stand down and resolve things peacefully, or risk being obliterated by Zachary’s power as a Nephalem.

Re: [RP]Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen

 

Bandit’s eyes widened in fear at the woman’s gaze upon her – something about it gave her an eerie feel. A feeling that she was being threatened, more so than Raul ever had.. Somehow, with Raul, she did not feel true danger – not entirely. But now, that was a different story.. Now, she felt that this woman would go through with whatever thoughts possibly plagued her, where before Raul didn’t. At least, with Raul, Bandit knew she would not die. Here, however…A cry came from her lips as Habib was knocked back, then lay still on the ground. Oh, god! Was he dead? The stillness only seemed to confirm any suspicions she had, making this day as a whole all the more worse. But then Zachary attacked Raul in turn, knocking him down as the demon transformed before her eyes – surely Raul could not fight back? 

 https://i1.wp.com/media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m0e4j6M1Ql1r7spu1.gif

But something else was going on within the blonde thief. Her child was retaliating, in its first true act of power, despite being unborn and still relatively small within her. A dark purple color glowed in Bandit’s lower abdomen, a scream of panic coming from her lips – “What is happening to me?! Someone! Help!” Her skin was beginning to turn transparent, the wall behind her becoming visible as she disappeared before everyone’s eyes… Had they been looking. “Raul!” Yes. She called for the name of the one man who had put her in this position, the one who brought her so much pain.. But also, the man she realized loved.. 

“Please!” Her voice itself had begun to fade as she did with it.. And then she was gone, the pillow falling with nothing to hold it up, the thief disappeared from sight but not memory. All that remained of where Bandit once sat was a few sparks of purple, where the magic had left a trace. These sparks blinked and shimmered, showing how powerful the move had been, how the magic of the child was essentially oozing out.. Where could the child have possibly brought her? And.. she could not survive, not in her current state. Finding her was of the essence.. or she would be dead in days. She lacked blood and food, lacked sleep… Bandit was a mere human, and the nights could get quite cold without shelter.. Not to mention her legs were barely functioning, still getting used to being unparalyzed.. A whole universe to search in days.. Would they find Bandit, or her corpse?

Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen

If only the menfolk could see what was happening inside the temple. The female fallen Amala had almost no expression, as she started for the knife that was on the meal tray. Meant for the cutting up of bread and certainly not for anything that was meant to harm Bandit. She wrapped her fingers around the handle and then turned slowly towards the frightened young mother to be. “You are a danger to us all.” Amala whispered, as the knife blade gleamed in her hand. She could not see anyway that Raul would stop if the child was alive. One life…for millions. Amala was starting to see it as a sacrifice for the greater good, even though she had promised not to harm Bandit.

“I’m so sorry…” she whispered, as though this was for her own good. Turns out though the baby had other plans. But just when Amala was about to raise her hand with the knife to plunge into Bandit’s stomach, there was a terrible blast of green light from outside the temple, and the sound of Habib screaming. At that instant, Amala dropped the knife and hurried outside, only to see her beloved laying on the ground – out to the count.

“HABIB!” She screamed, running to his side and bringing his blooded head up to her lap, as she rocked back and forth, crying and wailing.

With Bandit now alone inside, would anyone see what was happening next?

Much to Raul’s shock, Zachary had taken the gloves off. The unwarranted attack on Habib mean that he had now lost all patience, and one way or another he was going to calm the Warlock if it was the last thing he did. Winds swirled up and around Zachary’s clothing and hair, as he charged up his powers for what would be a fantastic metamorphosis. Valmont saw and recognized the change immediately. Without thinking, he put his arm protectively around Nicholas, as though to shield him. Things had clearly changed between the Ambassador and his assistant. Raul was looking to the entrance of the Temple and screaming out to Bandit, for he could hear her cries coming from within the temple.

“I’m coming!” That is what he meant, but Zachary was not about to let him.

“Seraphin… Praestantia!” 

It was too late, Raul turned back to see a tower of white flames and light. Raul put his hand up to block his eyes from the blinding sight, but the power was only to grow stronger as Zachary changed his form. Raul yelled at him. “BANDIT NEEDS ME!!” He could feel the sense of danger coming from within the temple. Was it his unborn son? “You fool, let me save her!” He begged, only to find that an angelic version of Zachary was in behind him, and now grasping his shoulder forcibly. Zachary then hurled the Warlock up high off his feet, only to reappear next to him and slam a foot into his stomach. Raul was completely winded, his face turning a deep shade of red, before he was knocked officially into the dirt. A cloud of dust rising up from where he finally came to a screeching halt, his face having been the brake.

A hand clawed the earth, as Raul continued to scream Bandit’s name. Little did he know….she was gone.

So much had happened in a small period of time, you could say it ended in disaster honestly. One person dead or almost at least, another gone. It had truly been a sight to see Zachary in his form, something he was glad to witness. He recalled on the conversation where they both shared the secrets. It was nice to have another person around, he would need to catch up with hi after this and tell him of what happened. A lot had happened, the light was blinding and Nicholas had lifted his arm a bit to block it. Shortly after he felt an arm around him, it was Val’s and that was surprising to him. You didn’t think he’d publicly do it but, he did and he enjoyed it. 

Something in the place didn’t seem right, it seemed almost creepy. Being as Nicholas had excellent super hearing cause of his serpent abilities he heard the conversation inside. It was horrid that the person was trying to kill her but, something else happened. Hearing the screams from Bandit he could hear vibrations inside, something different. Though one thing for sure was that he now sense that the girl completely vanished, whether anyone else noticed to on them.

Zachary was still pissed, but the fact that Raul had gone down so easily wasn’t what he’d expected. Zachary looked down at the male from where he stood, reigning in his power for a few minutes as he dragged it right back into him. Zachary didn’t see a point in staying in his Archangel form for very long if Raul was going down this fast without warning. But then it registered, the surge of energy caused his head to snap over to the temple just before Bandit’s energy signature entirely disappeared with the exception of a few sparks.

Zachary transformed back into his normal form, granting him access once more to his powers over darkness as he scowled and turned to sprint off towards the temple once more, his entire body slowly melting down as his voice could be heard calling back to Valmont with a loudly urgent tone.
”Valmont, Nicholas; you two handle the situation here! I’m going after Bandit before I lose her trail entirely!”

And with that… Zachary melted into darkness and disappeared, his flames disappearing with him. Leaving the screaming Raul and Valmont and Nicholas behind. Headed straight for Bandit in order to keep up.

Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen

Amala was cradling Habib’s head. He had received a nasty gash to the back of his skull, and the blood was seeping through onto Amala’s dress. Her tears ran down her cheeks, as she was so worried about her love, she had forgotten about Bandit momentarily. Of course, what she didn’t realize was that the baby had sensed it’s mother’s danger and taken matters into its own hands. The blast of light that came from the temple that had followed the girl’s screams for Raul left Amala, and the two from the Embassy – Valmont and Nicholas stunned. The only one who had a handle on the situation was Zachary, who had changed back to his normal form, and ordered that Valmont and Nicholas control the situation at the summit, while he went off after Bandit’s trail.

At the very moment that Zachary disappeared from view, with his flamed vanishing with him, Raul took the chance to go into the temple himself, shooting Habib and Amala the most foul look imaginable. Inside the temple, the Warlock saw for himself the sparks of purple, that were the only trace left of his girl and child. With a nervous hand, he reached out and could feel the residue of the unborn’s magical aura. He knew that Bandit herself had no powers, so this was proof..proof that Bandit was indeed carrying his child. The look on his face now was one of grim resolve. He had to find her. He had to be reunited with her. There was no mistaking that she had called out to him. Raul heard her scream his name. Even after all he had done to her, there was no mistaking the bond that they had. It wasn’t till now, that he realized the errors of his ways, and that it was costing him the woman he loved.

Not to mention, that this unborn baby was also in danger. In danger from the likes of Madame Green and possibly others.

Walking slowly out of the Temple, he moved silently passed Amala, who was still holding her beloved Habib. The fallen spat at the ground where Raul stood, a cruel look on her face.

“You ….and that child should be damned!” Words were sharper than knives. Raul raised his hand, as a fireball appeared, glowering fiercely as he roared at her. “Don’t try to fool me, Amala. I know you. Had you had your way, you would have ripped her belly open and taken my child out to kill it!”

Amala laughed sadistically. “I almost did.” This stark admission showed the truth behind her pretty smile. Without warning, Raul sent the fireball of rage hurtling at the pair, incinerating them both instantly. Their horrid screams faded to nothing, as Valmont stood in shock with Nicholas. The viciousness of the attack had shocked the Ambassador to the core.

“You murderous bastard.” Valmont yelled, making a move to stand protectively in front of Nicholas. There was no way he was going to let the Warlock leave the mountain summit now. Raul on the other hand had ideas of his own, changing forms into that of a black raven and taking off into the clouds above.

“Son of a….” The Ambassador cursed, feeling defeated as the Warlock got away so easily. He was not one that would be easily caught, that was for sure. Valmont felt terrible, as he walked over to the burning corpses of Habib and Amala. Their lives sacrificed so needlessly. Now it was a race to find Bandit and her unborn child.

Turning back to Nicholas, you could see the pain in his eyes. The guilt. “I should have stopped him” But how could he, being where they were standing. Walking back to Nicholas, he pulled the young man into his arms. Nicholas would be able to feel the fast beating of his heart. How does one follow a raven? With Zachary already on the trail of Bandit, Valmont hoped that he reached her….before Raul did.

“Come on…we better get back to the Embassy.” There was no sense of them touring the country side, when they didn’t know the first place to even start looking.

You could say everything happened rather quickly, Zachary was already gone on Bandits trail. He could tell he’d get there quicker then Raul. Hearing the conversation between Raul and Amala, he pondered if that as the right decision. Should the child of really been killed? There was always a way to change things, make them better. He had noticed with past events and how the person that is showing effection is changing. Being pulled into Valmont’s arms wasn’t as shocking as the first time, he enjoyed it now. Listening to his heartbeat he felt bad that he was like this, maybe he could help him later at the Embassy, though he didn’t know. 

” There was nothing you could do at the moment to stop him.” Nicholas said as he started walking away. 

Nicholas looked over at the bodies and walked into the temple, leaving Val for the moment. What was he looking for? Something for cover, reaching the bedroom he had saw the resadue of what happened. Interesting to see what had happened, the child must of had something to do with it. Picking up the sheet he’d walk back outside and placed it over the burnt bodies. At least they could have some cover for he didn’t want to dig graves. Once done Nicholas turned and went to catch up to Valmont quickly, following behind.

Flying.. What a strange sensation, especially for one who did not fly to begin with. Flap, flap. The beating of wings overhead made her blink and squint – until she simply closed her eyes completely. She was floating, airless.. The cold beat at her skin and made her hair whip around her, the only anchor was Habib’s warmth around her slowly freezing body.. All this time, through her exhaustion, she was still attempting to make sense of Habib’s words. Another inside her? What did such words even mean? With a slight sigh, almost inaudible, she would let herself fall limp in his arms once more, cuddling into him like a small child. Did Raul know? Was this his plan? Did he want her to be all to him, through a child? Would the child be as dark as his/her father? Was she going to have a boy or a girl..? And what on earth would she name it..?

Re: [RP]Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen
Krakus Mountain – Home of the FallenPowerful wings continued to soar high above all the realms of Hell, spiriting away the sickly Bandit from those that wish to do her harm – in particular, Raul. Finally at the top of the mountain there was a single light, that waved back and forth as though it were some type of signal or torch. Diving down, Habib swooped until he came close to the edge of a ledge like crevice. Carefully, he beat his wings slower and finally touched down to land, right before a much smaller creature. A young girl. A very beautiful young girl. Her hair was pure ebony, her lips full and with a fresh face she bore a smile to see Habib return
.https://i0.wp.com/mobi-wall.brothersoft.com/files/240400/f/12831935484642.jpg“My love…you brought someone back?” The girl asked, setting down the lantern and approaching to see the sickly figure in his arms. Habib folded his dark wings back behind him as he allowed the girl forward. “Tis Bandit.”

The girl looked shocked, her face riddled with confusion as she then cast her eyes down at Bandit. “The….Bandit?” It was almost to incredulous for her to believe. In another life….she knew her. “But I thought she….” Amala started, but then she had to start walking with Habib as he made his way towards the temple. “No…but she nearly did.” Habib spoke of how she almost died right there in the maze. “The witch healed her.” Another surprise for Amala. “Which witch? And what of Raul?” Clearly, Amala knew of the Warlock all too well. She quickly cast her eyes to the skies, thinking that he may have followed them. Habib was pretty certain he hadn’t.

“Probably in some inn….drinking his life away now. He lost, Amala. End of.” Yes, Habib may have said this, but knowing what he knew with Bandit being pregnant, that may well change. He gave Amala a reassuring look, before walking Bandit into the temple. Amala ran back to get her lantern, and then with her bare feet padding the stone floor of the outer landing, she followed Habib inside.

“I’ll make her some broth. She looks so hungry.”

With Amala going to the kitchen, Habib walked the tired girl into one of the chambers for her to sleep on a soft bed.

Re: [RP]Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen

Oh, how much they didn’t know.. Bandit’s eyes struggled to remain open, the image of Amala blurred and difficult to make out.. Voices were muffled, like she was underneath water.. Food was not an option currently, as much as she yearned for it.. No, for now, rest was what she needed.. What would sustain her. Sleep. Habib brought the small and petite woman to a chamber, laying her on the bed.. Its warmth immediately swallowed her, causing a sigh of relief. Ah, what it felt like to sleep on a comfortable bed for once.. It was blissful.. The blankets encased her, her fingers gripping at the blankets.. Ever so slowly, weak, she would pull them over her head, basking in the warmth of it all…

How little did she know about Raul’s conquest, about Amala and who she was, about it all.. Bandit only knew a fraction of hell, she didn’t know about the little being inside of her – in fact, the thought of a child had been erased from her mind.. For now, survival kicked in – she must have been hallucinating about his previous words.. The thought of being pregnant was absurd, clearly.. She wasn’t pregnant, that was impossible, she hadn’t had sex recently.. Or hadn’t she? It mattered no longer, her eyes closing.. Bandit was consumed into the thick darkness, dreaming a dreamless dream as reality became nothing more than a speck.

The Fallen now had a grim expression. He knew what he heard. Two heartbeats. Bringing up his hand he then racked his fingers back through his hair as the concern of what he knew was starting to get to him. If Raul were to find this out, there would be nothing to stop the Warlock from trying to find her. The trick, was to keep this under wraps – or find a place to take her that was well and truly out of Raul’s territories. But where? A child born from someone like Raul would naturally have magical powers, not to mention the fiery spirit of its mother. Habib did not have the clairvoyance to see into the future, he didn’t need to to know that the child whilst in the mother’s womb was going be in danger.The fair haired Bandit looked so peaceful in her slumber now. The horrors of the past few days must have been so taxing on her, that this need to sleep was all encompassing. Giving her their bed was the least that Habib could do.As he stood there, Amala crept in quietly with a tray that had on it a covered bowl of broth and sour dough bread. She stood quietly in the background, as though waiting for a word or maybe something to tell her what to do with it.

“Should we let her sleep?”

“Yes…put the tray down on the nearby stand and if need be we heat it up again later.”

Amala nodded silently, and padded over to the side board, where she placed down the tray with a light clatter of the cutlery against the plate. It was a small noise, but Amala still turned her head to see if it caused Bandit to stir. Thankfully, it did not. Amala pursed her lips together and made her way to Habib’s side. She knew not the reason that he had taken off without warning the many hours before, but now it was starting to hit her as to why.

“Why did you bring her here?” Amala asked, threading her arm through his as she went to walk him out of the room where they could talk freely. Habib went willingly, only to shut the door on the way out. When they were a good few paces away he stopped.

“It was not safe to take her anywhere else. Not in her condition.”

“Condition?” Perking a brow, Amala was now truly intrigued. “What…?”

“She is with child.” There….he admitted it. Amala fell back, her jaw dropping open in shock. “Pregnant? Who is the father?” It was only natural that the female fallen wanted to know. Her eyes searching her love’s and the look he gave her almost made her heart stop beating. “No….not him…anyone but him.” Amala wrapped her arms around herself and she looked so distraught. He had not been in their lives for centuries or so it seemed. He was able to manipulate many things thanks to that mirror of his. Habib could feel his love’s distress and he wrapped his arms around her tightly. His chin resting on the top of her head. “I had to bring her here. It’s safe…from him.”

Amala stared up at Habib with large eyes.

“Does she even know?’

“No…she doesn’t. I only felt it when I carried her away from the Maze of Greed. After the witch healed her. That is when I heard the two heart beats. The pregnancy must be in it’s infancy.” This would mean up to eight months of trying to protect her from Raul’s clutches. Habib continued to stroke his love’s hair, as he tried to think of what they could do to protect them both.

Re: [RP]Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen

A groan from the blonde figure on the bed near them.  Bandit herself was lost in the theoretics of dreams, but were they really theoretics?  Are yes, the thief did have a few tricks up her sleeve yet, even if she didn’t even know it.  Amazing how escaping the river of hell could give someone powers…but perhaps that was what having such a strong soul to defy fate gave you.  An “extra”, if you would

“What is it?” Bandit gazed at the sky above her, pointing at a reddish tinged star. There was a sound of a male next to her, a sort of “hmm,” pausing only as she looked at him. Him. Riley. “I’m pretty sure it’s a red dwarf. I’ve no idea how we can even see it, those things are really faded. Maybe it’s close, yeah?

“By close, do you mean light-years away?”

Yes. But close in relevance, you fucking smartass.” Bandit would grin at his response, making a noise of protest at his slight smack against her arm.

“What a bright light, though.. Wow..” Bandit would squint then, the light of it growing, beginning to hurt her eyes.. “Hey.. what the..?! Riley..?!” The blonde glanced over at the redhaired male, only to find that it was instead Raul’s face, a scream coming from her lips — the red had morphed into a streak, as though someone was attacking with red magicks, wings covering the sky behind the red streak – dark wings, of a fallen angel..!

Sudden, searing pain caused her to squeeze her eyes shut, a burning in her abdomen that spread to her navel and then lower – suddenly, a child crying, her hands wet over her chest.. The blonde opened her eyes, gazing at the screaming infant while she herself screamed..

The child suddenly went silent while Bandit screamed on, its eyes opening.. One was violet, the other amber, a sort of deep and mature look in its gaze, as if it understood.. And somehow she knew this was her child, sound ceasing from her lips as she would turn to face Raul next to her, his eyes suddenly determined.

He reached out for her child, taking it from her; in that instance, she wanted to bite him, to claw back for the child, but a feeling stopped her. Something told her this was not the thing to do. The warlock wrapped an arm under her abdomen then, pulling her against him and cradling the baby boy against his chest and looking down at it, then up to her.. “You did so well, my love..

“Oh, Raul..”
Bandit, I love you.. I love our son.. Our Grimm..

Why was his voice so far away sounding..?

. . .

Bandit herself would do no more than roll over in her slumber, raising both arms to cover her head from view, unknowing that she had just witnessed the future..

Re: [RP]Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen
Krakus Mountain – Home of the FallenStanding outside Bandit’s room, Amala and Habib were still in each other’s arms. Habib trying to comfort his beloved from the threat of the return of Raul into their lives. Bringing Bandit here, was at a cost to their own safety. While both had their own powers in this realm, the memory of what Raul had done to them in the past still haunted them. Amala could not get over the fact that Raul had actually impregnated Bandit. All that she knew was that Raul was a sadist, who enjoyed nothing more than torturing women under his influence. He must have really messed up this time, to get one pregnant. Or did he do it on purpose? You had to wonder. Thinking on it, if he wanted a way to bind the woman to him truly was to make her the future mother of his spawn. Would this child take on the very powers of his father? Surely if that were the case, then the child would be a great warlock in its own right. This was truly a dangerous time for Bandit, and though Habib kept reassuring her that Raul was off drinking away his troubles, she had this sneaking suspicion that somehow he was going to find out.
https://i2.wp.com/iamnumberfourfans.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Underworld1.jpgReleasing Amala from his embrace, Habib cupped her cheeks and stared into those worried and sad eyes.“I promised you that he would never harm us again. I meant that.”

Habib did make such a promise, but in bringing Bandit here, he may have unknowingly put them into the line of fire.

“I hope your right….for all our sakes.”

Far below, on the winding dirt track that led up the mountain, there was a sleek black and silver wolf, that was running through the forest. It’s paws slamming into the earth and its labored breaths showed that it was determined to find it’s prey. Leaping over a fallen log, it’s bold strides and capability were beyond that of an ordinary wolf. The fact was, it was a warlock….in wolf’s clothing….

Leaping onto a large rock crevice, it howled long and loud. The moon was the only one to hear, but it was a warning.

Raul was coming.

Perks of being a Nephalem and having control over Darkness came to a point in which he had plenty of use for it, including extremely fast travel. Umbraportation, or teleportation with darkness, was near-instantaneous travel because it let him move at the speed of shadows, which was essentially the speed of light itself. Done by actually melting away into shadow, becoming a being of shadow itself. It was invaluable.Once Zachary had fully formed, his blue eyes almost immediately picked up on the energy signature of both Raul and Bandit, but the problem was they were in two different places. Wait, that wasn’t a problem. Zachary used his ability to both perceive and see the energy to lock onto Bandit, she was the more important, only to melt into shadow once more for a split second, reforming only feet away from the two fallen.Zachary went wide-eyed for a moment, backing up several steps before he shook his head and regained his composure. It was all that he could do. Hopefully Valmont and Nicholas would get there soon, before Raul, but if not then Zachary was going to have to handle this. Which is why he spoke in a diplomatic, and non-threatening tone to help avoid causing trouble.“Sorry for barging in like this, but I think you’ll be alarmed to know that you’ve a very dangerous visitor coming this way, and he won’t be long at all. And, to inform you, I’m sure you’ll know exactly who he is as he is most likely after the woman in that room…. or rather what lies within her. I am Zachary Knight, Chief Adviser of the Ambassador Vicomte de Valmont. I’m not here to cause trouble, but rather to prevent it.”

Bandit’s eyes struggled to open, disturbed at the sounds she had heard, the movements – until, of course, her brain recognized that of a visitor… At this her eyes easily snapped open, a gasp coming from her lips as she would sit up in surprise, pulling her pillow over her body in a somewhat defensive move. She didn’t hear a single word Zachary had said, but from Habib’s look and the woman’s next to him… Something was wrong. Bandit herself looked incredibly gaunt and frail – just waking up hadn’t done her much good, and blood was still dried to her skin.. Nevermind that she’d slept for.. what? An hour? She didn’t know. It could have been minutes. It’d been days since her last official rest – her death not quite counting. It was her child that kept her alive and breathing at an even pace at this point, even if she did not know it.Her child – that was growing in her and could be no more than a month old – was the one keeping her alive. If one could see auras of power, Bandit herself was glowing from her own powers that the child had given her, but her light was most concentrated in her lower abdomen – her womb. “What.. What’s going on…?” She found herself backing towards the edge of the bed, just to have her back against something so no one could come up behind her.. A natural instinct of a survivor.. Though, she would be dead, if not the child within her. Mariela’s magic had only helped the fetus grow stronger than it should have been, along with Bandit’s will and Raul’s powers. So much power in something so small, that it had leaked into its mother around it..

Re: [RP]Krakus Mountain – Home of the Fallen
Krakus Mountain – Home of the FallenThe last thing that Amala and Habib were expecting was a visitor. Both went immediately on the defence as the man approached was an unknown to them. Habib’s wings opened out to the full, his face showed a new anger that had not been seen before. As for Amala, she raced inside and stood guard before the sleeping Bandit. The man approached Habib, and then started off with a greeting that was mixed with a warning.“Sorry for barging in like this, but I think you’ll be alarmed to know that you’ve a very dangerous visitor coming this way, and he won’t be long at all.”Amala whispered Raul’s name in shock. Her fears from earlier were now fully justified. This was not what Habib wanted to hear however, and he growled under his breath. It seemed that more knew about Bandit’s condition, than he had suspected.“When he left the maze, he was defeated. Someone had to have gotten to him afterwards, but who?’ It was like Habib was talking to himself. He was staring at the ground, shaking his head in utter disbelief.

“I’m sure you’ll know exactly who he is as he is most likely after the woman in that room…. or rather what lies within her.Habib started to nod, as the blood seemed to drain away from his face. Inside the room where Bandit lay, Amala was now wringing her hands and pacing back and forth. She knew the danger of Raul even when he didn’t have a reason to be incensed. The fact that they were harboring Bandit – the mother of his unborn would make him release such powerful magic that it might be impossible to stop.

Bandit roused and was now using the edge of the bed for her support, so no one could come at her from behind. “What.. What’s going on…?” Amala went straight to Bandit’s side, and had a look that was one of panic. “You don’t know what is inside of you, do you?’ Nothing had been said to her directly, as they had not yet been given the chance. Her head whipped around when Zachary introduced himself as Zachary Knight, Chief Adviser of the Ambassador Vicomte de Valmont. He said he was there on a mission to protect, not to harm the expectant mother. If the Embassy knew, then those higher up in Hell knew. Oh this was bad. Habib could not hide it from Bandit any longer. Bringing Zachary in to see her, he had to tell her the truth.

“You carry the child of Raul the Black…..and he is coming for you both.”

Looking back at Zachary, he added. “We need to prepare. God knows what he is going to do, when he gets here.”
