Monstary of The Brotherhood
With hands folded behind his back, the figure surveyed the carnage that laid before him with no chanlance and disinterest as eyes wondered around the great Hall of the monstary looking for the main reason for his coming.
His eye caught sight of the remnant of monks trying to hold their ground against his men in both brutal combat and show of power and witchery but they were no match for his men as they fell one after the other
Borax clinging to the last ounce of power he had, to wield a force field strong enough to deter their enemies long enough for the the remaining survivors to escape
They had come under sudden attack and not given them any chance to organise an effective attack thereby leading to them being cut down like slaughter cattle. It was a massacre
Once the shield was in place, it gave the remaining survivors a chance to escape to safety. Allendor, his second in command, urged him to let go of the shield so that they could escape knowing that with the waning strength of his OverLord, the force shield would not hold much longer under the heavy bombardment it was receiving.
Who ever these people were, they were ruthless, relentless and outright monsters and he knew his Overlord didn't stand a chance.
But one final look at him, holding eye contact told him all he needed to know.
Bowing his head low as a final respect to the man he had come to see as as his father, teacher and mentor mouthed
" I will not fail you"
With that, picked up the old leather bag that laid besides his Overlord and fled to safety through the hidden tunnels
Borax seeing that Allendor had gone and knowing that all hope was not lost, turned to face the monsters before him that were trying hard to breakdown the shield he had put up and from the looks they had almost succeeded so he readied himself for the final onslaught
If he was going down, then he wasn't doing it without a fight
" So you left your fancy office and grandiose palace to come redecorate this humble monstary. Please do tell me who you are. At least I get to know the name of the person by whose hands I die so that when I get to the great beyond, I know whose evil soul I get to torment "
Borax said not knowing were this false self confidence was coming from. Well maybe this was his own way of dealing with his own inevitable death
The constant bombardment of the shield had lessinged to a final stop as they made way for their boss to walk closer to the shield and then he gave a wicked and evil laugh
"Even in death, you attempt to humor me " he said
Borax replied "well I can't help it . It's one of my many weaknesses
Nimrod stroke the shield,testing it's strength and resistance then smiled again at Borax
"My name ---" and with one swift and very powerful surge of force sent a blast that broke down the shield.
Before Borax could react to the speed of this monster it was too late. Borax throat was held in vice grip round his neck choking the life force out of him
"---- Is Nimrod"and with one final smirk plastered on his face, twisted borax next to a on unnatural direction, effectively killing hm
While Nimrod stood over Borax body, his second in command, came and stood behind him and was about To speak when Nimrod replied
"I know Sherach" he said and continued
" I haven't waited for over 3000 years only to have it get lost again. I don't care What it takes, that scroll must be mine this time around,. So that for once I my wage war against the Heavens again. And this time I don't intend to fail"
"What about the LEGACIES my Lord" asked Sherach as he knew that they would pose a major treat to his boss
Nimrod turned away from the chaos around him and walk away without responding to Sherach's question.
When they were close to the car, he paused said to his long time friend and lieutenant
"When they make manifest their presence, we will be ready" and with that they got into the car and zoomen offf

Hey guys and babes this is a new book I am trying out and it's a mix of dark fantasy of biblical proportion, with a touch of sci-fi, action packed and page turner
But most of all I like like you to keep an open mind while reading this book as it is purely a work of fiction
I don't know who to invite but please assist in inviting everyone
As you can see the prologue is out so what do you think. You comments will spur me to write more chapters
Oh and by the way this book is completed on paper so unless by some any strange reason, it will not be an unfinished work
Please do mind the gramatic pluders and spelling errors

" Iniobong hurry up or you will be late and miss your flight" his sister shouted from down stairs a
" I'm coming joor. You just dey disturb my life like say the plane go go leave me " he replied his sister from his room as he took one final looks the room that had housed him for close to 22 years knowing that it might be the last time he ever got to see it again. After one final look, he turned around and exited the room to go down and meet his fuming sister
Down stairs, he met with his mother's worried look and immediately went to hug her in reassurance that all will be well with him
" Iniobong, please Once you get there do not return to this country unless I ask you to and while at it, please change your name . And please in God's name, no matter how they entice you, no matter their promises, no matter their threats, do not fall for it.
Fight for the sake of your father's sacrifice not be invain " his mother instructed as her final parting word
" Yes ma" he replied
" Mbog, nme mben Abasi uponno mfo, kama Abasi ku 'uwog. A me diong nhor nnong mme ete ato
( Please in God's name, hold God strong. You do know the type of extended family you have and that they will stop at nothing till they have what they want )"
" Mummy nme kob" he replied
" If God wills it, we will see again, if not know that you are always loved"
"Thank you mommy " Iniobong replied
" Ha mommy time is going oooo" his sister interrupted so that they could be on their way to the airport.
Eno and Ini drove the entire 2hour journey to the airport in tense silence as both were deep in thought about the circumstances that led to their present predicament
At the airport after all the checking in was done, their fight was announced for passenger to start boarding., Eno hugged her brother thought with emotions high as she knew that they may never meet again unless their predicament was resolved, which she knew was largely impossible.
"Ini don't forget to call us. Even if you were asked not to return until the coast was clear try to make sure you stay in contact with us oooo" she begged or more like threatened
" Big sister, I don hear you. Sha take good care of mommy and yourself " he said as they made their final goodbyes
As he walked towards the boarding terminal, he sighed loudly thinking of all that led to this point causing him to flee. He also wondered what life had in store for in America
After boarding the plane awhile back, the captain announced that the flight was about to take off and all the passengers should fasten their seat belt, relax and enjoy the ride.
If only the knew that Iniobong life was about to become extremely difficult

Running like her life depended on it ----- 'cause it did-----
as she was trying hard to loose her pursuers. She wasnt prepared to find out what they wanted from for she knew no good could come out of it
As the daughter of one of the most powerful witches known, or would think that she stand and fight these men as it would have been a walk I the park for her.
The thug was that she had been banned from using her powers for the main time due to her careless usage and stripped to the basics for self defense which she was using right now but we're useless against their men
Secondly, these were no ordinary men, as they seemed to be breaking a through all the protective barriers she threw at them to slow them down
Damn!! She thought to herself that she was in reality deep trouble if she didn't get away from them on time and get to her mother's shop
Shit! Shit! Shit !!! She exclaimed as they broke through another barrier she threw at them
" Alva calm down , you can do this 'she said to her self trying as she ran weaving herself through crowd,through streets and alleys to get to her mother
Cutting through the flowing traffic , she finally got to her mother's bakery shop, opening the door running inside calling for her mother and at the same time trying to catch her breath from running, she saw her mother bearing a worried expression on her face as she approach her
" mother ....people.....chasing.....powerful ...." Alva wizzed out through coughing fits and short brrsths while all the same pointing to the window facing the road.
Agnes followed her daughters pointing to look out the window just in time to see three men stsirng viciously back at her.. A bus passed by momentarily blocking her view only to fing that the men vanshied
" Its alright Alva, they're gone. No one will hurt you " she said trying to calm her daughter down.
Whoever those people were. Were no shy to show their faces nor chasing her daughter
" Alva I need you to tell me what happened, " she queried her daughter

" I was going to get some ingredients for baking cookies from the supermarket when I felt eyes on me. Initially, I shrugged it off but when I couldn't seem to get off the vibe, I looked around but saw nothing strange. At the point of leaving the supermarket I was approached by a middle aged man who held my hand and said
[i[b]]Daughter of Glenda legacy of light, quencher of darkness, chaos has awoken, malice is enthroned and battles to destroy all. Nimrod hunts for what the Legacies must destroy find the other Legacies and banish dark with light"[/i][/b]
"He was about to give me a bag that looked when all of a sudden we were surrounded by these strange men. He performed a very strange art, gave me the bag and told me to run like my life depended on it which I did while he held them off" she finished, looking at her mother who seemed stunned by the words that she just spoke and started to pace around the room. It was never a good sign when her mom panicked
" Mom is every thing alright" Alva asked
" MOM!!!!" she shouted jerking her mother out of her panicked thought
"The prophecy,,,....... Nimrod......" Agnes said
" Oh my queen of heavens......"
" NIMROD " she repeated to reassure herself
" Oh my God "
She turned to look at her daughter then said firmly
" we have to go NOW! "
She gave instructions to the staff present the came back to her office to meet her daughter. She snapped her fingers and a perfect circle with two Sigel's appeared around them then a bright light shine and they vanished only to appear in their home
Agnes chanted some words in a strange language she had never heard her mother speak before and symbol started appearing everywhere but Agnes used her hands to direct them towards every entrance into the building and motioned Alva to follow her
They proceeded to her mother's personal library which held various exotic books both of the dark arts, witchcraft and forbidden knowledge
Giving a bag to Alva to hold, she finally said
"Listen to me Alva we don't have much time left to explain to you but trust me, they'd be here soon and its best that we are not here when they arrive"
"Who are they mom?" Alva questioned
" I don't have time to explain to believe me when I say they are not coming to hold hands and sing kumbaya with us"
Alva nodded and her mother proceeded to explain to her in what little time they had all she need to know to survive as they were about to be separated howbeit for a shirt time
" Finally I will be unbanning you from using your powers but you must promise me to be extremely careful when using them"
" Remember I will find ....." She was cut off by the sound of an explosion in the sitting room
" they are here "She looked at Alva one last time with a string determination
" I will find you"
Just as the men were about to break into the room Agnes stretched forth her left hands to put up a strong shields to hold off the men till she was through with what she was doing
First to go were the books in her library as whispered a fee words and the all the books vanished leaving the room bare of any book for she knew that some of those books in the wrong hands meant doom to all
Next she put her hands on the floor and spoke some words and two pentagrams with special Sigel's appeared again and she ordered Alva to step into one which she quickly did and vanished. As she stepped into her own pentagram the shield finally broke and they rusher in only to have smile wickedly at them as if to say so long suckers and vanished
" Witches!! I hate those slippery b*** he's" Sherach .muttered
"What do we do now sir?" Ask one of the two men with him
"We find the remaining Legacies " he answered
With that they exited the house but not before Sherach stretching forth his hands and sending a pulse of energy that set the house on fire in annoyance of of not getting what he wanted

[center]Chapter 3 [/center]
Moon Blazer Pack,
"I said NO! Adrian" Fernandez said to his youngest son
" But why father? All I asked was to visit aunt Linda and you say no. I ask for permission to leave the palace grounds in other this visit my friends you denied me. Why, I don't know. But isn't it strange, that I have to ask my own father permission to even move around freely. Even stranger is the fact that Philippe comes and goes as he pleases. I am twenty four but but I can't help but feel being treated liked a ten year old kid who is been grounded for being disobedient " Adrian retorted
Shaking his head in disbelief at Hus son's tantrums. Just as he was about to reply his eldest son walked in on them. Bowing his head in respect before greeting
" Hello father "
" I see that you have returned well"
" Yes father but not with good news'
" The rouges wolves are getting more organized in their attack, picking out isolated packs that are far from help. They've resorted to guerrilla tactics. Its as if they are trying to draw us out "
Fernandez sighed heavily. Never in his 100 year had he seen such skills and organization in rouge wolves. With coordinated attacks that matched well train fighter wolves in packs. It was really unnerving.
" Send words to the council heads to instruct all packs in the hinter lands to move closer to the palace grounds for their security and safety. The faster they move the better.
Secondly, I want you to please explain to your brother in clear terms why I will not let him outsider this - palace prison - as he so calls it" Fernandez added
Philippe cringed at the word "palace prison " and gave his brother a thoughtful look while Adrian just shrugged it off. While Philippe bowed his head once again, Adrian just turn his back and walk off without saying anything
Adrian had a lot of things running through his mind and sitting with Philippe discussing fun times was not one of them, most especially now that he had put a plan in motion, an action he knew wouldn't sit well with Philippe
Even though Philippe tried to explain to his kid brother the dangers their faced, most especially being of royal blood, he couldn't help but have the nagging feeling that today wouldn't end well. He loved his younger brother to the extent of being over protective of him, but deep down he knew that a day would come when Adrian would have to make his own part in life
Later that night , Adrian set his plans into motion. He was not going to end-up being caged in this God forsaken palace. He wasn't about to go crazy Jones .
Throwing some clothes, his passport cash and other essential items into his duffel bag, he proceeded to strip and change into an all black combat pullover that would aid him blend with the night. He couldn't change into his wolf as that would alert the guards to his presence through his scent and aura.
Given his room one final look, he dropped the note on the bed and left closing the room door quietly
3 hours later
Finally at were she said she would be waiting stood his aunt Linda as she breathe in a sigh a Adrian smiled mischievously
" What?!! You thought I wasn't going to make it?"
"We have to go. Your cloak wouldn't last for much longer" Linda said as she turn to enter the car
" I know. Its as though Philippe doubled the guards patrolling the grounds, thinking of an imminent attack." He said
" That's not what I'm talking about. Have you notice the recent attack drive carried out by the rouges? " she asked as she started the car and began the long drive to the airport.
" Adrian nodded but kept quiet, for he knew not to speak when his aunt was in the middle of saying something important
" The cloak I'm talking about was put on you since birth. And the attack were centered on finding you Adrian. You are who they are looking for" she concluded without looking at him

Oh well here is another chapter loading............

The ever busy airport was bustling with both human and vehicular traffic. Those waiting for their flight, others disembarking while others just sat there waiting for friends and family to arrive to be reunited with them
Security on high alert for any suspicious activities, individuals or packages, with guard dogs sniffing for drugs and contraband
Taxis lined up the ever busy entrance of the airport either dropping or picking up passengers to their various destinations
No one paid much attention to one man walking out of the V.I.P section with an air of authority clad in expensive suit that screamed of taste and class or the stern looking bodyguards who flanked him on both sides putting up an air of power, like every other person was inferior to them
But this expensively suited man was any thing but calm. As a matter of fact Nimrod was getting really enraged at the string of disappointing news he was receiving. So much so that a tiny slip for his powerful aura nearly grounded the airport activities
For that split second loss of control, a plane taxied off the runway due to a freak burst in tires, another private jet just stopped working mid-way to taking off. The exit was not speared either as the entire fleet of taxis waiting for passengers ended up with broken wind shields
But by time Nimrod got, hold of him self the damage had already being done. He and he troupe made it to the cars got in an left
"She is Agnes's daughter" Sherach said in a low submissive voice trying not to anger his boss
"Fan-fucking-tastic. Of all the people in the world, Fate just had to pick Agnes as the bears of my down fall" Nimrod exclaimed to new one in particular
" We know that they are in the U.S but were, we do not know. For she put up a very powerful cloak to shield their presen
' What legacy is her daughter " he asked
" legacy of life Sir "one of the guards answered

Chapter 4( condt)
"What about the mutt Prince? Any news?"
" Linda made it abundantly clear that anyone that wants her nephew will have to go through her?"
" And? "
Sherach watched his boss fury build up, for he knew he was threading dangerous water and had to choose his next words very carefully
" sir we have been battling these females for over a thousand years and haven't succeeded. Matching us wits for wits and power for power and we haven't even put a dent to them"
His answer seemed to satisfy his boss 'cause he heard an exasperated sigh before responding
" Why do these females have to be so bitchy. What about the book any sign of it" awaiting to hear more bad news but when he saw his second in command smiling, his heart skiooed a beat in joy - if that was even possible
"We found it along with the scribe who took it those many years ago. He happened to have gone to warn Agnes's daughter about your presence and to possibly return the book to her mother" Sherach answered, a bit more relaxed now that his boss anger was satiated
"Finally, some good piece of news that makes my day" Nimrod smiling face change as he was already thinking of his next action
A question bother Sherach and Nimrod noticed this
" Will not the heavens respond to you finding the book again by sending those proud feathered flops after you?" He asked gravely
" Well I expect they will, after all it will not be in His character not to aid his creation he So lovingly protects. But this time he will be in for a nasty surprise. That stuck up, Old entity called God wouldn't know what hit him" Nimrod mused as he sat back to enjoy the rest of the ride

Touching the book with care as though any poor handling and it would rip to shreds,Nimrod let his hands skim through the cover of the book as he went through memory lane.
The book in question was made of thin gold plates not parchment and so weight a lot. To the unfavoured, it would need at least 4 able bodied men to carry but to the highly favoured and chosen, it weighed just like any other book.
On its cover were written strange words that were foreign to the unfavoured but to him, without even thinking, knew the language in which the words were inscribed in - Enochian
Nimrod spoke the words with translated to
"BOOK OF WORDS AND POWER
SAMAYAZA THE WATCHER"
and immediately the book responded by emitting bright light then vibrating roughly before stilling itself and the first page opened on its own accord
After what seemed liked days of continued torture, Allendor was very weak and for once death seemed like a reprieve but they were not going to give it to him. His tormentors when beginning to fassel out and left to go refresh themselves leaving him all weak and
For someone more than a century old, you would think that he was an old man when in fact to the human eye, He was in his mid thirties. This was due to the power coursing through him, keeping him young and unaging as a result of being a keeper of the Book of Word and Power and as of now, he was of no use to the book as it had returned to it original owner - Nimrod
He knew what that monster, Nimrod wanted to use the book for as he needed extra help to wage war against the heavens and its host.
Before all the running, when Hus former master was alive , he had asked why the book couldn't just be destroyed and be done with
[center[b]]" that book can't be destroyed just like that because it houses the life force of a very powerful entity " Borax had said
"But can't the angels just use their powers and puff all the stress is gone" asked the 13 year old Allendor whose mind was very inquisitive
" If it were that easy , then they would have done so. Remember that book survived a flood, a hail of fire, a purge of knowledge, and a hunt and it still got to us to keep hidden. That should tell a lot about the books resilience "
"But everywhere that book goes, destruction seems to follow it. I fear for our lives grand lord" the young Allendor cried
" I know. That is why if anything should happen to me take the book and run. For you have been favoured to be the books custodian[/center]
Allendor was brought back to the present by the rattling of the gates to his cell. And it opening to reveal a man he so loathed
"Nimrod" he said with every bit of venom laced in his words that his now weakened state could muster
" Yes thats me" he replied with evil grin
" So were where we? Ha, yes! " and with that, Nimrod delivered a powerful upper cut to Allendor's jaws

U. S. A
Opening the door to his apartment, Oby trudge slowly to his bed and flopped down on it. These few days had been really hectic for him combining both his education and a part time job and it was telling in him
"Just five minutes sleep and I ll be okay" he muttered to himself and closed his eyes for a short nap
Slowly, he opened his eye and his hands went to his phone in order to check the time only to find out that he, not just had a five minutes nap but a three hour sleep.
It was 5pm and almost time for his shift which began and 7pm. He also had to contend with a grumbling stomach which seemed to have a mind of its own,so he got up and went straight to clean himself up since he slept in the clothes he had worn to school and got himself ready for work
Business for the restaurant he work at seem to move at a slower pace today as there were not a lot of costumers around today. His job mainly consisted of being a chef aid, dishwashing and taking out the garbage and since there was not much to do, he played around the cooking area with the chef whom he had come to see as a good friend of which he didn't have a lot of - if at all he had any
Unlike some days that had him constantly in his feet either washing the dishes or delivering orders to the waiters, today afforded him the time to think about his life and how boring and uneventful it was turning out to be. Just as he was reminiscent on the turn of events that led him here..........
"Order for table 4. Here take" Kate the blonde waitress handed him the order paper
"Finally we have an order" the chef exclaimed in a dramatic way while collecting the paper to go start cooking. Within fifteen minutes the food was ready and Oby took it to the delivery window were Kate stood waiting for the food order to take to the customer
"Here is your order for table 4" Oby said as he handed the food over to her
"Thanks Oby" she replied , take the food along with her to go serve the customer
Oby lingered just to watch Kate go.
"Damn that gurl has got a nasty piece of ass" he thought to himself but immediately shook the thought off. He couldn't deny that he had some kind of attraction to the girl, but would he work on it and ask her out? That was left to be seen.
"You know I can always ask her on your behalf you know" the chef said catching Oby by surprise
"What ? don't look so surprised. I was once your age and a nervous wreck when it came to girls
" Ben, you and I both know I am way out of her league." Oby responded with a sigh of defeat
" like I said, i can ask her on your behalf in a subtle way that is" Ben smiled with mischief as he winked at Oby
" Please don't . let me work up the courage to do so myself" Oby begged
"Okay. But you have four days then I come in" Ben threatened playfully
"Okay, deal" Oby agreed and the changed the topic to upcoming Superbowl
Oby's shift ended at 2 am in the morning. But didn't want to say at the staff room reserved for night shifters as the there were always body action going on at night that Oby felt uncomfortable with. He was fortunate to have his home in a nearby neighborhood hence he walked home. But he was also unfortunate to have it in a rough neighborhood which mearnt that he had to improvise and make friends with one or two of the local gang members so that they could help spread the word the he was harmless to all, a move that favoured him. These friends told him when to and not cone back at night effectively being his eyes and ears within their world
That didn't mean that he'd leave his guard down when walking home after a late night shift
He was just about turning the corner that led to his block, when he felt a nasty foreboding. he stopped and surveyed around him. He saw nothing and then kept walking. He felt it again and this time it came more stronger that before. So without thinking, ran as fast as his legs could carry him screaming at the top of his voice to wake the entire neighborhood. Explaining could cone tomorrow but today, he wanted to survive.
He didn't stop until he was inside of his apartment building. Only then did he stop to catch his breath with loud heaves and coughing fits while laughing at himself like a slowpoke
He put his hands in his pocket in order to fish out His keys only to discover that it was not there
" shit! Shit! Shit!!!" He exclaimed. What was he going to do now
He went down to the Porter and first apologized to the middle-aged lady about his previous actions earlier and explained to her what had happened especially about losing his keys hoping against hope that either she had a spare or tools he could use to pry open the door
"I truly sorry for your predicament but you would have to wait till the morning when the foreman comes in" she had said
Sighing with resignation, he walked back to his door and slid down the floor waiting for morning to come. Not knowing the extent of his tiredness due to the USAIN BOLT he had to do, his eyes drooped slowly and within ten minutes he was sound asleep with legs stretched out on the floor

A twist to the left then to the right, eyes open then close then open again
'Haaaaa!" He screamed into his pillow in other to muffle the noise he made . He rolled out of bed as he couldn't take the restlessness anymore. He made his way to the kitchen,got out a glass cup and made his way to the sink to get a drink of water in other to quench his thirst any if possible calm his raging nerves.
After quenching his thirst, he went back to bed hoping to get so sleep but found it impossible. He took his phone which laid on the dresser beside his bed to check the time
"Damn" he muttered to himself as he wondered why his worries choose today of all days to pester him. He knew he had left without even a hint of his whereabout and he knew too well how worried they would be about him
When his aunt Linda had dropped him at the airport eight months ago she had explicitly warned him to not contact them in anyway for his own safety as those after him had very resourceful means of tracking him but that didn't mean he didn't from time to time wonder if they missed him,if they were mad at him. Of course they would be mad.
"Who wouldn't be?!" He chastised himself
Would they punish him? What kind of punishment would be metted to him? Would he be forgiven? What kind of man had he become in this eight months? Yes for the first few weeks of his life in freedom he had led a rather promiscuous life but he got his acts together and moved on with his life.
Apart from his life has a forgotten prince like he'd refered to himself in his magnificent prison as he referred to the palace, he had trained as an engineer in one of those pompous and snoobish universities in Spain and even had a stint or two with one of the royal family subsidiary in construction. But he never got the feel of working as he was just there as a figure Head not really doing anything. Out here were he was not known and no title attached to his name, he became all he was meant to be in his choosen field with no favouritism or prejudice towards him
Bringing himself out from depressing his thought, he chided himself
"If I keep up with these thoughts, I might as well just prepare myself for the Looney house soon"
speaking out loud to himself
Andre left the bed againand this time, his destination was to the sitting room to watch a movie or two to in other to get his mind off his depressing thought. Finding the movie he was searching for and a hopeful distraction for his sleeplessness, inserted the movie into the DVD player. So engrossed in wanting a distraction, that he forgot to tune down the volume of the sound system that was still on loud, was startled by the loud noise of the 21st century theme song.
"What the Bleep?!" He quickly scrambled to reduce the volume hoping the loud noise didn't wake his neighbors
Not satisfied that the reduced volume would aid his quest, he matched to the front door to check if any of the neighbors woke up due to the noise. He opened the door quietly and looked to the left
" Thank God " he whispered to himself then looked to the right only to meet a body sprawled in fetal position near a door. Immediately,his barely awakened animal instinct kicked in, sniffing the air for blood or sign of drunkness, there was none. Instead his ears were met with a steady heart beat and sound breathing which made relax a bit
Was he sick? He asked himself as he drew closer to get a better view of the the guy. The male was dark skinned and probably the same age as him. He made to go as not to disturb the guy but he felt an unexplainable pull towards the guy to help him. Without thinking twice,strode back to him to find out why he was sleeping on the floor.
He gentle shook the guy awake but no response so he shook him Abit harder. The black guy finally stirred and woke up promptly
"Is it morning already? I need to go get the utility guy to come open my door" he was talking and standing up at the same time but Andre strained him
"Hold up big guy. First, it's not morning yet. Secondly, why didn't you just ask one of the neighbors to let you spend the night on their sofa instead of sleeping on the floor. It's not good for you"
" Well maybe that's because I don't have any friends as neighbors and I don't believe you would open your door to a random stranger you hardly know let alone to sleep on your sofa" the black guy countered
' Well fair enough. I wasn't thinking that far deep" Andre apologized
" No problem. Pls can you tell me what says the time" the black guy asked
" 2:46 am"
" Blood fucking great! I still have like 4 to 5 hours till I can get some proper sleep on my bed" the black guy whined
" You're welcome to come sleep in my apartment. I don't mind"
The black guy gave Andre a strange look, it was some seconds before Andre read the face of the the black guy before quickly dispelling the thought
" No,no,no,no. I'm not Gay, I was just offering help. If you don't want, then it's ok."
" Why did you think that I thought you were gay. I am no homobic even though I am not gay. And being gay is no crime. I was just thinking that I have lived in this apartment for eight months now and no one has ever offered me this kind of gesture" the black guy answered truthfully
" That's because we never met until now" Andre replied
"O my manners! My name is Iniobong and I'm from Nigeria. But people call me Oby because the former is kind of a tongue twister"he laughed
" I'm Andre and it's nice to meet you. But you have less than 5 hours of sleep before the utiliy guy comes. I don't know about you but I'm bombed. And unless you want to spend that time sitting here, I suggest you get your ass up"
Oby got up, picked his things and followed Andre. Immediately Oby was settled in on the sofa, Andre strode back to his room feeling all his restlessness vanish,in its place was a tired yawn escaping his mouth and the moment his head tourched the pillow, he was out cold

Palacio Del Poderoso Rey, Alfa de Alfas, Lupus heights, Spain
That's what the palace felt like now. It's was true what they said, that you don't value what you have until you lose it. In this case,it was his son. Andre had managed to fill the palace with his warmth and laughter just like how his mother had once done but for the past few year, he was more or less caged within the palacre walls due to the rising attack on the wolf empire by unknown forces of rouge's and outlaws whose loyalty when often bought by the highest bidder to do their dirty works. His instinct had told him the were after something or someone but who or what thatwas, was still unknown to him.
He remembered how after one of his major arguments with about his freedom of movement, he just became cold, distant and resigned.
Though this precaution was for his own good,as the attacks had become more rampant and viscous, he knew more than anything that the boy just wanted his freedom away from the wolf community. Seeing that he felt inadequate as he could no transfrom into a wolf- a gift to his kind by the godess herself. It seem that he had inherited his mother's genes making him feel like an outsider. He had tried to assure him that he was loved none the less be it him being a werewolf or a human, but it seemed it had hit is self esteem hard as it was never heard of an Alpha king's offspring being human no matter who he was blessed by the moon goddess to be bonded with.
He was brought out of his thoughts by a knock on the door but before he could answer it was opened revealing his eldest son.
" I've told you countless times what use is it knocking if you don't wait to be told to come in?"asked the king who knew his son's antics at his behavior. He too had being affected by Andre's flight and couldn't help but beat himself up over it as he felt that if he had paid his younger brother more attention and had been more of a elder brother than the soilder he was maybe he might have stopped him from running away
"Any news from the outline packs" Fernandez asked as his son made to sit opposite of him
" No father. It's as if they just stopped and disappeared. And that bothers me alot " replied Fillipe truthfully
" More like they were looking for someone or something and the moment tyeyfound out they wouldn't be getting it they just upped and left" he added
Fernandez poundered over the a little before asking again
" And the spies?"
" No news from them yet. The last I heard from them, they reported their trail going cold"
" What about Andre?" Thie king asked hoping against hope
" No news yet. It's as if he too just just dropped off the face of the Earth" Filipe replied with a frustrated voice. Fernandez stood up and walked over to the window overlooking the well maintained lawns. Without looking back spoke
" Today would have been his birthday"
" He's just as head strong and stubborn as mother was"
" Even more than her. But you were worse. Imagine having both parents and you still managed to put us on our toes." The king smiled at a memory of Filipe in teens and some of the troubles he caused. He turned back just in time to see Filipe's mouth quirk up in one of those his mischievous grins that made females fawn over him
" I miss mother" confessed Filipe
" I know. Who wouldn't?"
" I have a strong feeling if we are to find Andre then we might need the help of -" he was cutoff when they both felt the presence of a very strong and powerful yet familiar aura. They both went out to go welcome their guest howbeit grudgingly.
As they both came to the hall way, pentagram appeared as bright as fire yet only giving out a caressing and comforting warmth. Some seconds later, a familiar face appeared
" Linda Delacrux!!! How many times have I told you to use the door. Doors are meant to be opened and closed. They are for going out and coming in. You use them for the same"
Fernandez bellowed though half heartedly
" Well, hello to you too your majesty" Linda said with smile of mischief evidenton her face as she left the pentagram To go heart felt hug Fenandez . When she withdrew she turn towards Filipe as if to give him then at the last minute went for his hears and twisted it painfully.
" That is for not visiting or calling for 2 years. I thought we taught you better than this. Instead you go about manwhoring yourself all-round and leaving your dear old aunt to take care of herself alone " Linda complained ignoring Filipe's pleading to be released from her grip
" Oh Linda give the boy a break. I think he's learnt his lesson" trying to rescue his son from the grip of the evil witch ( Filipe's words when he was much younger)while stiffling a laugh over his son's present condition. Releasing him from the painful grip, hugged him patted him on his back affectionately
" Father she nearly mutilated me and you're not going to do anything?" Asked Filipe in mock whine well he still rubbed his still tender ear in other to sooth the pain.
You didn't have to go that hard ? Even Rufus felt the pains" Filipe said referring to his alter ego - his wolf
"I know. I intended it that way" Linda retorted
" Thanks to the goddess, I was not paired with you as a mate. I might as well have abdicted the throne to you in other to runaway" Fernandez muttered
" Well thanks for the vote of confidence" she replied, smiling as they proceeded to the study to have more privacy
"Ha! Fez, I didn't know you loved to watch birds . When did this new hobby begin? " She asked nonchalantly as she walked calm and calculatedly towards the window as both men watched her carefully not saying a word , not understanding what she was playing at as the never liked birds and she knew it.
As she drew closer to the window, the bird didn't feel threatened and in one quick move sent a force that wrapped round the bird and drew it backr to her.
" Deliver this message back to Nimrod, keep clear what's mine and he will not be having a she-bitch to deal with" she shared at the bird before letting it go.
She watched fly away back to its master before turning back to both men but this time, all traces of smile gone, replaced with the warrior queen she was.
" Gentlemen we need to talk"
