((Sure Kaster, we're in need of vampires if that helps))
Daphne led Nick back to where sheÃ¢Â€Â™d last scented Anita. Ã¢Â€ÂœIÃ¢Â€Â™ll shift into wolf form.Ã¢Â€Â Daphne said as she undressed and handed Nick her clothes. Nick didnÃ¢Â€Â™t look particularly surprised no one liked ruining a good set of clothes. Daphne transformed into her wolf form and began sniffing the ground. It only took her moments to find AnitaÃ¢Â€Â™s scent and start to track her.
Nick kept up the pace also scenting the air for confirmation. They followed the trail for an hour and it led them back to the water hole where Daphne had originally started. Nick spotted Anita at the water hole, still in wolf form. Daphne howled to let Anita know she was part of the pack. Anita howled back in response.
Daphne and Nick approached her and both she-wolves shifted into human form. Nick handed Daphne her clothes and averted his eyes from Anita in respect.
Ã¢Â€ÂœWhy do you seek me out?Ã¢Â€Â Anita asked as her honey coloured hair fell in waves around her elfin shaped face. As Daphne looked her in the eyes she could definitely see the resemblance to Nathaniel.
Ã¢Â€ÂœI have come across a half-wolf that smells remarkably like your scent and has eyes very similar to yours. I was wondering if he was related?Ã¢Â€Â Daphne told.
Anita looked surprise, her eyes slightly haunted. Ã¢Â€ÂœI donÃ¢Â€Â™t know what youÃ¢Â€Â™re talking about.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœHe wants to meet you,Ã¢Â€Â Daphne said.
Anita looked flustered, Ã¢Â€ÂœWhy would he want to meet me?Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœBecause heÃ¢Â€Â™s never known his mother.Ã¢Â€Â Daphne explained.
Ã¢Â€ÂœWhatÃ¢Â€Â™s that got to do with me?Ã¢Â€Â Anita said as she paced looking agitated.
Ã¢Â€ÂœYouÃ¢Â€Â™re his mother, arenÃ¢Â€Â™t you?Ã¢Â€Â Daphne questioned hoping she wasnÃ¢Â€Â™t about to be attacked.
Anita suddenly shifted back into her wolf form and made a run for it.
Clara had been disappointed at CrispinÃ¢Â€Â™s decision to leave the half-wolf slayer alone. Clara could smell that he was trouble. As Clara walked away from Crispin she realised she was nearing LoxleyÃ¢Â€Â™s quarters. She smiled to herself, although it was clear to everyone that Daphne was not interested in Loxley, he seemed blind to it. Now Clara had something she could use to convince Loxley that he should be with her for the Luna Eclipse.
Raising a hand, Clara knocked on the door. She heard the scuffle of movement behind the door and then it opened. Loxley looked terrible, his eyes had dark shadows beneath them, his face was covered with stubble and he had a defeated look in his eyes that hadnÃ¢Â€Â™t been there yesterday.
Ã¢Â€ÂœYou donÃ¢Â€Â™t look so good,Ã¢Â€Â Clara stated as she pushed her way inside.
Loxley stood back and let her do so then he seemed to become angry. Ã¢Â€ÂœWhat are you doing here?Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœI just came for a chat,Ã¢Â€Â Clara said innocently.
Ã¢Â€ÂœYouÃ¢Â€Â™ve ruined my chances with Daphne,Ã¢Â€Â Loxley growled as he sat on the edge of his bed glaring at her.
Ã¢Â€ÂœYou never had any chance with her. Besides you kissed me as much as I kissed you.Ã¢Â€Â Clara pointed out.
Loxley turned his head and ignored the comment. Ã¢Â€ÂœYou should leave.Ã¢Â€Â
Clara sat down next to him and crossed her legs elegantly. Ã¢Â€ÂœLook Loxley I came here to tell you something. I saw Daphne in the forest today and sheÃ¢Â€Â™s paired up with a slayer. Not only that heÃ¢Â€Â™s a half-were.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœWhat!Ã¢Â€Â Loxley said as he rose to his feet.
Ã¢Â€ÂœIÃ¢Â€Â™m guessing that sheÃ¢Â€Â™s decided she wants someone dangerous as her partner for the Luna Eclipse.Ã¢Â€Â Clara said knowing it was completely untrue.
Ã¢Â€ÂœIÃ¢Â€Â™ll kill him. IÃ¢Â€Â™ll rip every bone out of his body and drink his blood.Ã¢Â€Â Loxley vowed.
Clara waved a hand at him, Ã¢Â€ÂœDonÃ¢Â€Â™t be so dramatic. Besides why worry about her when youÃ¢Â€Â™ve got me.Ã¢Â€Â
Loxley glared at her and she decided to stand. Loxley came at her so fast she barely had time to brace herself. Grabbing Clara by the throat Loxley pinned her to he wall. Ã¢Â€ÂœWhy would I want a pathetic excuse of a she-wolf like you? You canÃ¢Â€Â™t even defend yourself.Ã¢Â€Â
Clara shifted into her humanoid wolf form and threw him across the room. Ã¢Â€ÂœPathetic? YouÃ¢Â€Â™re the pathetic one, wanting a female who despises you. Forget it IÃ¢Â€Â™ll find a better male than you.Ã¢Â€Â Clara raked a claw across his face, Ã¢Â€ÂœI prefer my men sane.Ã¢Â€Â
Loxley bit at her arm in response but she pulled away. Ã¢Â€ÂœGet out of here you piece of filth.Ã¢Â€Â Loxley snarled as he put on a clean shirt and jeans. He was going hunting for the half-wolf.
It was like thousands of voices cried out for a sequel and were suddenly silenced...
