More Than One Kind Of Evil

Dead Man's Blood
More Than One Kind Of Evil

Kate felt her entire body slow down in that moment, as if she was mortal again. She had heard the rumour about the gun, yes, but she couldn't actually believe it. The Colt was just a gun, just a mortal piece of metal and wood. She was sure he was going to stand back up and start cackling.

They all had their right to survive, didn't they, even if it was a less than mortal form? they hunted yes, but so did the men who ate burgers and strangled chickens for food. She sees his skull flash through his skin, and in that moment she knows something is very wrong.

"Luthor!" She hears the scream, and it rubs her throat raw until she can almost taste the dead man's blood again, but that doesn't matter. He falls, and her heart stops, before adrenaline kicks it back into action. They may be evil, may be creatures, but they aren't emotionless, and she feels as if she is going to die. She'd like to die, anything to make this unbelievable pain stop.

Then she catches sight of them, smirking, pleased, as if they had just ripped out her heart and eaten it, and found it to be delicious. She feels herself want to move, to shift to attack, but then she's yanked away, and she doesn't care by who.

Later, she wants to pretend that everything is all right. She knows with Luthor gone, she's the eldest, most ancient of them, but she can't bring herself to lead the stragglers who survived the attack. She can't even make herself hunt once they have a safe place to nest again. All she does is curl up, grasping the cross that he had given her in her hand, swinging gently in her hammock. The others worry, try to bring her food, but she can't be bothered. There's a hole that's missing now and nothing can ever be the same again. No blood will taste as rich, and when she does try, it dries up like sand in her throat. She notices, vaguely, when someone else takes control and she smiles. At least they'll survive.

She doesn't want to, she can't, living, surviving hurts to much without him, and starving is to easy. It hurts less, this death, and there's no pleasure to buoy her through like her first, but she doesn't need it. All she needs is an ending.

Awww....I'm sorry twin.

Maybe it's that, or maybe it's because we just realised what it would be like if it was B/F, and what B would be like if it happened. Yes Happy. Happy good.
