Rose turned to find the cause of the strong will she had to look behind her, to run into the arms of the unknown. There was another person standing there in the shadows. She couldn’t see the face, just his silhouette against the lights behind him. He stood alone, strong, tall. He had an air of importance around him that made her want to bow down and pledge her allegiance to him.

“Kemar Alved….are you really running…from me?” Came the silky yet masculine voice in a mocking tone.

Kemar pulled Rose behind him again; he stood defiant against this new foe.

“What do you want River.” His voice was hard and dangerous, if it was the red haired vamp from before Rose was sure just that tone would have sent him running. He had an aura of power emanating from him. He was showing his power level to this other vampire.

Rose gripped Kemar’s shoulder, she closed her eyes. Convulsions ran through her body like a tiny tremor, her eyes rolled back into her head and her mouth opened slightly. He was calling her, wanted her to go to him, why couldn’t she go to him? When she reopened her eyes, she found it was Kemar that was holding her wrist, pulling her back from whatever was pulling her.

In that instant she despised the man before them. He was powerful, she could tell just by his compulsion with a mere word running through her mind, but he relied too much on his vampiric abilities. Her hate is what set her free from him. It was as if a cloud had cleared over her mind, the fuzziness around her eyesight was gone and she could think straight, see straight.

“A question with a question.” This time the man stepped forward, a slight smile on his face that was still a mystery to Rose. He played the light and shadows well, making them work to his advantage… making him seem mystical and dangerous.

“Lets try this again shall we? Have you told her exactly what you are and where you are taking her?” River said taking another step forward.

Rose looked from River to Kemar, “What does he mean?” They both seemed to ignore her.

“I already told her who I am.”

“Really? How interesting…so you told her how her parents trusted you and you betrayed them by giving their location away? Told her that you are a bounty hunter hired by Rick Black? That when she enters that building she will be—“

“ENOUGH!” Kemar shouted.

Rose stepped away from Kemar, but his grip was still tight on her, a little more and he could crush her wrist. He looked at her, “Don’t listen to him Rose, he is lying.” But his eyes gave him away. They weren’t concerned, sad, appealing to her better judgment. They were cold, hard, and dark with anger at his plan falling apart just when he was so close to accomplishing it.

River took another step forward and Kemar pulled a gun from the small of his back under his sweater and aimed it at Rose.

She gasped as she looked at this man who she trusted.

“Take a step closer and I’ll kill her River. And you know she won’t be of any use to either of us dead.” He grabbed Rose by the arm and pulled her with him, the gun pressed against her temple now.

The smirk on Rivers face had disappeared, and a scowl replaced it. “You can’t escape us Kemar, Madame O has eyes everywhere; she wont be in your custody for long.” He said in a lower growl.

It was Kemar’s turn to laugh as he backed up. They kept walking until River was a  small and dark speck in the distance.

“You son of a bitch.” Rose choked out. “It was you that sold my parents out. How could you?! They trusted you!” Kemar shrugged as he pulled her into Metropolis A’s streets.

“They didn’t pay enough.” Then he laughed, “Get it? Cause they didn’t pay me anything.” He laughed at his own joke shaking his head before he said.

“C’mon, did you honestly think that the military would send one man to find us? That they would fire and miss us and then we would miraculously lose them?” he scoffed at her.

“The military is run by the man I work for darling, Rick Black. And they are comprised of vampires….trust me…if they wanted us found and dead, we would be so already. No human escapes the military when spotted.” It all dawned on Rose that the entire run in the desert to the Boundary was a setup, a ruse to get her to trust him. She struggled against him, curses falling from her mouth as she blinked back tears, she would not give him the satisfaction. But as she focused on her surroundings rather than her anger, she stopped in her tracks at the sight before her.

There were humans in plain clothes, collars around their necks, walking behind elegantly dressed vampires. She looked at the majority that were children and choked back the scream that wanted to tear her open. She could see some had punctured holes in their neck, other their wrists, a few even had shunts placed in their arms that had a release knob…like they were some kind of walking blood barrel that could be switched on and off at whim.

It was horrible…and yet that didn’t quite describe it either. She was so blind. She never knew that this was what was happening. Did her parents know? How could these people treat children this way? How can they be so heartless? Did the heart shrivel up and die when they purposely infected themselves with the chemical? Questions, ethical questions burned her mind.

Kemar dragged her with her arms behind her back in handcuffs he had procured from his pockets. When he had slapped them on, she didn’t know. He didn’t need his ‘nice guy’ guise anymore. As she walked past the horror that beheld her on the streets, it was all in slow motion and she saw herself faltering. Her feet skipped the pattern of walking, her hearing decreased, and slowly a cloud of black began to veil her eyes.

  1. Oh crackers…. she should have followed the mystery voice! Or would that have been worse? Such a good story. -EQ

    • Quite a conundrum she is in no? XD Mysterious man versus Kemar the betrayer!?

    OMG! OMG! *dies of shock and disappointment at Kemar*

    *miraculously wakes up to rant about Kemar*

    The slick, sick son of the devil had me and Rose fooled. How could he? I trusted hm, I didn’t see his betrayal coming. And River, I don’t know. I like knowing he’s powerful, but the kind of power he has scares me also. I don’t want to trust him blindly just yet like I trusted Kemar, so I’ll wait. But he excites me!

    Great update. MOAR!

    December 15, 2011 at 4:22 am

    • YES! I succeeded XD
      I loved how everyone took to Kemar so easily…. :}

      December 15, 2011 at 5:08 am

  3. That was so good! I love how he turned on her, and the humans on leashes? Brilliant! I cant wait for the next chapter! 🙂

    Ingenious! Oh….those poor humans….children as blood barrels……good grief Dusty….you are good! I loved the twist with Kemar. Waiting for more…..ravenously!

    • Lolz, I do not know which is worst: children vampires, forever young or children being used as blood slaves! :O

    Got caught up! 😛 I really love your new story so far… It’s sad that Rose has to go through all that. It’s going to be interesting to see her struggling in this world… Can’t wait for the next update!!! 😀

    December 16, 2011 at 8:29 pm

  8. Did you create Rose yourself? She’s gorgeous!

    December 16, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    • Yay! Saquina! I had no idea how to contact you since your blogs were deleted. :[
      Im so happy to see that you found me nevertheless. :]

      Thank you so much for reading! <33

      And yes, I did create her. :] Im glad you like her! Whilst I was making her I was trying to come up with a background for her, and thats where the basis of the story sprouted from.

      December 17, 2011 at 5:08 am

      • 😀 Well, my blog now is at http://saquinalegacy.wordpress.com

        You did a great job creating Rose and your story. I really can’t wait to see how this is going to play out!

        December 17, 2011 at 2:56 pm

        • Bookmarked!

          And many many many many congratulations on your adorable bundle of joy! <3333

  9. What!!! I can’t believe Kemar would do this : (. Is there anyone she can trust? And what a disgusting sight to see humans treated like water fountains. I hope Rose will find a way to escape this horrible place! GREAT CHAPTER!!

    December 17, 2011 at 4:19 pm

  10. The blood slave concept is very creepy and very clever.

  12. Wooow! That was sooo unexpected! I really trusted Kemar. In your previous chapter I even said I liked him! Okay, well I take that back immediately. Can’t believe this was all a ruse to trap Rose. I wonder what will happen to her next. I doubt she’ll be able to escape from Kemar when he has her under his watch.

    December 19, 2011 at 1:27 am

  13. Rika: Its hard to think that there is one person she can…she is truly truly alone now. Before, even though she didnt know Kemar well enough, he was still someone by her side, on her side.

    Seaweedy: Thank you. :} It was based on the concept for dialysis patients. They have a permanent shunt attached to their arm.
    Thank you for the ping!

    Auburn: :} Can I say that Im glad I tricked you? XD I was grinning when I read your previous ch comment. But yes, I do agree it was a very foul thing to do to someone who has no idea where to go, who to trust, someone who lost basically everything just hours ago.

    December 19, 2011 at 8:32 am

  14. An amazing story! I can’t believe this is my first time finding it on TSD. I love your main character Rose! I hope she’s okay but after this chapter, things aren’t looking so good.

    December 21, 2011 at 5:22 am

  15. WTF! Wow! I…

    I hope Madame O finds Kemar and makes him her bitch! That was just cruel! Her parents trusted him and he did this knowing what was in store for her and those people that were murdered back in the valley! You played this up so well and I, like Rose, was fooled! River is hot (and I hope he can be trusted) he offered up the real details behind Kemar’s plan but that could be to gain Rose’s trust as Kemar used the tools he had for that same purpose! I should have known something was up when he was taking her to the ritzier side of the area rather than some place she could hide out! You did an amazing job with this! I love twists like that and I did not see this coming! Your writing is phenomenal too! I am thoroughly entranced with every line!

    Man! The way you described that scene in front of that building is sick! Those poor children and I can only wonder why they’d use children in that fashion 😦 I guess the pure the blood the better!

    • I love reading comments to this chapter! XD

      River is another wild card tossed up into the player list like Kemar. Kemar used Rose’s vulnerability, her parents and played her, and would have to the very end. But thanks to River, Rose was able to see just what was happening, though it was too late. But then as you said, River is doing the very same thing, can he be trusted or can’t he is another question for another chapter entirely. For some reason or another everyone wants her. XD Id hate to be her.

      Thanks! Im glad that you found it gross and sickening. Its has become a very heartless society, where the only use a human has is their blood.

    ~ OK, her father knew of the betrayal as he said follow the Blue,that is River with his blue hair!Ha!ha!(I’m guessing he has blue hair!LOL!But his name means blue too,River!)
    ~ OK, I am still reading & loving it!(“,)

    January 21, 2012 at 7:10 am

    • Hey Aussie! Lolz, I love your train of thought, that could very well be what her father was talking about! :]
      Thank you for reading doll ❤

      August 16, 2012 at 12:04 am

  17. Wow… Now I really don’t know how she’ll make it out of here alive. I think it might be Blue, the girl her parents had mentioned earlier, that might help rescue her. As for Kemar? I can’t believe he can do that? He seemed so loyal…

    August 14, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    • Wolf in sheeps clothing! :]
      Rose is in deeper trouble than she was when she started…! I dont know how she will make it outta here alive either! As they say out of the frying pan into the fire!

      August 16, 2012 at 12:06 am

  18. :O his could Kemar betray her like that? He manipulated her!!!! Great chapter.
