Re: RPG - Supernatural: Vampire vs Werewolf
When Daphne returned to the conclave she wasnÃ¢Â€Â™t surprised to see Loxley waiting for her. However she was surprised to see the guilty look on his face.
Ã¢Â€ÂœWhere have you been?Ã¢Â€Â he asked sounding worried.
Ã¢Â€ÂœOut,Ã¢Â€Â she said simply as she kept walking along.
Ã¢Â€ÂœI need to talk to you,Ã¢Â€Â Loxley said, Daphne didnÃ¢Â€Â™t miss the touch of pleading in his tone.
Ã¢Â€ÂœCan it wait until later?Ã¢Â€Â she already knew his answer.
Ã¢Â€ÂœNo, this is urgent.Ã¢Â€Â Loxley replied looking at her firmly.
She stopped, Ã¢Â€ÂœOkay what is it?Ã¢Â€Â
Loxley looked at her sheepishly, Ã¢Â€ÂœWe need to talk in private.Ã¢Â€Â
Daphne sigh, she certainly wasnÃ¢Â€Â™t inviting him to her sleeping quarters. Ã¢Â€ÂœFine letÃ¢Â€Â™s go to your place.Ã¢Â€Â
He smiled slightly but still looked very uncomfortable. Daphne was surprised, Loxley was always so confident. This was unusual. Maybe heÃ¢Â€Â™d finally come to terms with her lack of interest.
She followed him to his private sleeping quarters, her senses on high alert. Loxley shut the door behind her politely then sat on the floor. Daphne followed his example.
Ã¢Â€ÂœOkay whatÃ¢Â€Â™s so urgent?Ã¢Â€Â she asked.
Ã¢Â€ÂœI messed up. Clara came onto me and we kissed.Ã¢Â€Â Loxley said with a wince.
Daphne smiled, Ã¢Â€ÂœSo you want to be with Clara now?Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœGod no, I imagined it was you that I was kissing.Ã¢Â€Â Loxley told.
Daphne closed her eyes and shook her head. Just when she thought sheÃ¢Â€Â™d finally gotten rid of him he simply confirmed he was more obsessed with her then sheÃ¢Â€Â™d initially thought. Ã¢Â€ÂœLoxley, if you-Ã¢Â€Âœ
Loxley pressed a finger to her lips. Ã¢Â€ÂœPlease I want to apologise. I have a feeling IÃ¢Â€Â™ve really blown it with you. Please forgive me, I swear IÃ¢Â€Â™ll make it up to you.Ã¢Â€Â
DaphneÃ¢Â€Â™s mind was going like crazy. If she didnÃ¢Â€Â™t forgive him would he leave her alone or would he be worse? If she did forgive him would he assume that she wanted to be with him? There was no telling how his mind would twist her response. Then an idea came to her, Ã¢Â€ÂœLoxley youÃ¢Â€Â™ve just proved you canÃ¢Â€Â™t be faithful, why would I want to be with someone who canÃ¢Â€Â™t commit to one female when only courting?Ã¢Â€Â
LoxleyÃ¢Â€Â™s eyes widened, obviously he wasnÃ¢Â€Â™t expecting such a question. Ã¢Â€ÂœIÃ¢Â€Â™m not courting her, she came onto me.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœBut you admitted you kissed her. Did you enjoy it, Loxley?Ã¢Â€Â Daphne said watching him squirm.
Ã¢Â€ÂœYes, I mean no. I mean I was imagining it was you.Ã¢Â€Â Loxley said trying to claw back.
Ã¢Â€ÂœBut it wasnÃ¢Â€Â™t me, Loxley. You havenÃ¢Â€Â™t even kissed me, Loxley. Why donÃ¢Â€Â™t you go kiss Clara since you enjoy it so much.Ã¢Â€Â Daphne instructed.
Loxley raised his hands to cup her face, much to DaphneÃ¢Â€Â™s annoyance. Ã¢Â€ÂœBut Daphne, I love you.Ã¢Â€Â
Daphne almost gave up but then she thought of another barb, Ã¢Â€ÂœIf you love me so much you wouldnÃ¢Â€Â™t have kissed another woman.Ã¢Â€Â
Daphne should have seen it coming but she didnÃ¢Â€Â™t, Loxley leant forward to kiss her. She immediately tensed but didnÃ¢Â€Â™t move as an idea came to mind.
Loxley released her and looked into her eyes searchingly.
Daphne knew this was going to be harsh be it had to be done. She took LoxleyÃ¢Â€Â™s hands from her face and stood up. Ã¢Â€ÂœConsider that your kiss goodbye, Loxley.Ã¢Â€Â
When she walked out the door she heard his scream of Ã¢Â€Â˜noÃ¢Â€Â™ but she kept walking. She felt like such a cow but it was the only way she could rid herself of the man.
Now it was time for sleepÃ¢Â€Â¦
Daphne awoke feeling rejuvenated that evening. She had a weight off her mind and a goal to achieve. As she stepped from her quarters she was happy to see that Loxley was actually absent, it was the first time in months.
She sat down with her pack mates for a meal for the first time in ages. A few of the males were wary in sitting near her from LoxleyÃ¢Â€Â™s previous behaviour but when they saw he was not around they relaxed.
When that was over Daphne planned to visit AnitaÃ¢Â€Â™s quarters to see if she had returned. But it seemed she had not.
Next Daphne went to see Crispin, he was around. He showed her to a chair and she settled in. Ã¢Â€ÂœSo what information do we want to tell the half breed?Ã¢Â€Â
Crispin let out a sigh, Ã¢Â€ÂœNot too much though I suspect heÃ¢Â€Â™s kin.Ã¢Â€Â
Daphne nodded, he was kin to Crispin but not to her. Ã¢Â€ÂœSo do you know why Anita goes on spurts of leave?Ã¢Â€Â
Crispin shrugged then thought better of it. Ã¢Â€ÂœWhen Anita was younger she was curious about the human world. She wanted to know how it all worked and she wanted to know why we donÃ¢Â€Â™t live with the humans. Of course this was after she went through the blood phase.Ã¢Â€Â
Daphne nodded, each werewolf went through a stage in life where they craved to hunt and taste blood. Those born as werewolves grew through it in their childhood while those who were turned did it in the first 50 years of their life.
Ã¢Â€ÂœI was fine with Anita going to explore provided she had a guardian with her. She was okay with this initially but then she grew more adventurous and managed to find ways to lose her guardian.Ã¢Â€Â Crispin told. Ã¢Â€ÂœEventually she came to me one night saying that she had fallen in love with a human. I was furious and forbade her to see him again.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœIÃ¢Â€Â™m guessing she didnÃ¢Â€Â™t take that very well,Ã¢Â€Â Daphne put in.
Crispin nodded, Ã¢Â€ÂœTypical youngster, thinks they know everything. Anyway she did obey me for a while but then the time of the Luna Eclipse came. As you know each werewolf seeks to find a mate, but thatÃ¢Â€Â™s not the only reason that the Luna Eclipse is special. It also makes us far more fertile. Those who could not conceive a child normally now could. As for humans and werewolves, we cannot breed together normally, however during a Luna Eclipse we can.Ã¢Â€Â
Daphne nodded starting to understand where this was going.
Ã¢Â€ÂœMuch to my dismay Anita fled during that first Luna Eclipse of her maturity, she was determined to go back to her human. Now I am concerned that she did actually have a child. She was gone for so long that it was possible. When she came back she was never the same happy girl I used to know.Ã¢Â€Â Crispin said.
It was like thousands of voices cried out for a sequel and were suddenly silenced...
