    Fate/Law Intertwined
    By: Roadbuster And Elf



    This whole week had been bloody worthless. Not only had it been ridiculously cold, but she was in this far-off country without her beloved car or any true safe-house to speak of. Not that she didn’t like Japan, she just preferred an island nation to be more… tropical. Not in the sun sense, but more along the not fucking freezing lines.

    Cold was the one enemy that Law Unto Herself had never really been able to defeat. As a vampire, her lifeless blood generally took the temperature of the air around her, which is why her compound was always nice and freaking warm. Jackets don’t tend to work if they don’t have any body heat to trap, after all.

    The vampire known as Forest walked down the still bustling city street of Fuyuki on the way back to her Hotel. She was on the verge of just coming out and screaming a string of curses in as many languages she was so pissed off. Her whole reason for even coming here had been reports of supernatural beings fighting and some innocent people receiving the short end of the stick. Jobs had been slow and this was something to do. But, when she had finally gotten here to check everything out… she had missed it.

    There had apparently been one Hell of a fire last week, and since then nothing. No attacks, no sightings, not even a fucking stubbed toe had occurred since then. Whatever had happened was over. Countless were dead from it, but in that final clash that erupted a blaze that erased a large chunk of the town whatever had been at war had ended each other. Meaning Forest was stuck wondering around with nothing to do until she could arrange travel back to her compound.

    And even that had to be a hassle. She had to contact either Gabriel or Wynn, and have them cart her back. She didn’t like depending on other people and preferred to carve her own path, but it booking an only night-time flight was near impossible and they tended to be more concerned with carrying firearms onto planes these days. Stupid Die Hard movies…

    Amidst her bitching to herself, Forest found herself in a street-side market. Most of the shops had closed up for the night, but there were a few still serving a last-minute crowd. It wasn’t all that late yet, one thankful thing about this time of year being that it was dark by 1830 here. And thank the Morrigan they didn’t use that AM/PM crap, either.

    Forest paused as she saw what looked to be a large bag of groceries seemingly moving by itself. Further investigation revealed a pair of tiny legs under it and a child’s hands desperately trying to hold onto it. She had to smile at the child trying to help its parents with the shopping by proving it could help carry them as well. So many kids these days seemed so spoiled.

    The child turned around, trying to see where it was going and revealed herself to be a young girl, seven or eight at the most. She had her raven hair pulled into adorable little pigtails with the rest of her hair falling freely behind her. She was wearing a large red coat and skirt with black leggings underneath. But above everything else, Forest was drawn to her eyes. Even the fairies rarely had such intense color, and aquamarine was even rarer.

    The people of the market began to thin further, yet the girl remained, seemingly making her way to the end of the street slowly. Forest’s maternal instincts wouldn’t allow her to leave until she had made sure the child had found her parents and that they took her home. She followed the girl, pretending to look at the wares from the venders while keeping the girl in her peripheral vision at all times.

    It came to the point where the girl had left the market and was still alone. There were less people here and it was dark. This city wasn’t particularly known for violence, but a young girl wondering around by herself in the middle of a darkened street wasn’t something Forest would permit. She wasn’t doing anything else anyway, so a little escort duty wouldn’t be so bad.

    She approached the girl at last and said, “Hello, little one,” in a cheery voice. She smiled warmly down at her and bent down on one knee.

    “Why have you been following me?” was all the girl said. She didn’t turn around, but kept going. Maybe even a bit faster.

    Forest tilted her head and asked, “What do you mean?”

    “From the market. You have been following me since I started home from the market. Did you not even realize half those stores you were ‘looking’ at were closed?” She responded, still walking away.

    Forest almost chuckled at herself. The girl was insanely sharp, that much was obvious, but that didn’t excuse her from being out here alone. “Would you believe me if I said I was worried about you?” she asked of the girl.

    “Not really,” was the reply as expected.

    By this point, Forest had to get back up and follow the child again as she was getting away. “Well, it’s the truth… Where are your parents?” she said, keeping her distance, but keeping with the girl.

    After a hesitation the girl replied, “Around this next bend. So thank you and goodbye.”

    The girl’s voice lacked confidence and it was easy to tell that she was lying. “It’s not particularly nice to lie, little one. Where are they really?” she pressed.

    “Dead, alright? It’s not like I need them anyway!” the girl snapped, walking faster.

    Forest bit her lip and walked closer to the girl. What she had said had been true, the girl’s thoughts had betrayed as much when she had spoken. “What’s your name? Mine is Forest,” she said.

    The girl finally stopped, turning around to glare at her. There was fire in those big eyes as she replied, “My name is Tohsaka Rin, Forest-san. What do you want from me??”

    Forest kneeled down again, saying, “Tohsaka-san, all I really want is to make sure you make it home. Honest. So at least let me get you back to the orphanage, OK?”

    “Orphanage?! I’m no freeloader! I am the head of the Tohsaka family!” the girl yelled at her, stamping her foot on the ground.

    Forest would have chuckled at the girl if her words had not filled her with horror. She had to make sure, and so asked, “You mean… you live by yourself? At least tell me there’s an older sibling or Aunt or something…”

    “No, there’s no older sibling or Aunt or something. I don’t need anybody else!” the girl yelled at her again.

    “What did I tell you about lying?” Forest asked her.

    “Just shut up! I can get home by myself!” the girl said and turned to pick up the groceries.

    Forest got up and picked up the groceries before the girl could. The girl glared up at her but before she could scream ‘Thief!’ Forest asked her, “Where is your home, little Rin? I’m going to take you there regardless of whether you want me to or not.”

    “You… don’t you call me Rin! And… fine! I’m not really in a position to argue with a bully, am I?” The girl said with a huff and then began to walk again with Forest in toe.

    Forest was amazed by the girl’s sheer intelligence. She spoke as if she were twice her age and her mind was nearly as sharp as well. Forest picked up quite a few plans to get rid of her coming from the girl’s head, but she never went through with them. The reason was painfully obvious to her, as well. The girl was lonely. Crushingly so.

    As they walked along the streets, Forest was further horrified to find out just how far the girl had to walk to get to the market. It would have taken her hours to get home with the groceries by herself, and even without them, she was already beginning to tire. Forest walked up and bent down to take the girl in her arm, hoisting her up onto her shoulder without effort.

    Rin squeaked and then shouted, “You put me down this instant! I can walk just fine you idiot!”

    Forest smiled and replied, “Not going to happen, little Rin, you just make yourself at home up there and get used to it.” Rin mumbled something unpleasant but wrapped her tiny arm around Forest’s head to keep herself balanced. Forest’s arm was around her, too, feeling the warmth of the girl’s body.

    After a bit, a question that Forest could hear brewing finally escaped the girl’s lips. “You… aren’t warm, Forest-san… You’re energy is off as well… like… you’re dead. You… aren’t human, are you?”

    Forest sighed and replied, “That’s right, little Rin, I’m a vampire.” Lying to the kid wasn’t going to work, and she couldn’t think of any way to dodge the issue, either.

    The fear from Rin was overshadowed by another emotion… disappointment as she said, “A Dead Apostle… I see. You’re going to take me home and eat me… turning me into some sort of monster then…”

    Forest stopped and put down the bag of groceries. She grabbed the girl and placed her down in front of her as she kneeled down again. “Rin, I am not going to eat you. And I’m not a Dead Apostle… I’m different. But if you really are scared and want me to leave now, I will.”

    The girl studied her, her impossibly vibrant eyes looking deep into her soul. A thousand thoughts came from her still innocent mind, but eventually the over-ruling one prevailed and the girl said, “Don’t get lazy, vampire! You said you were taking me home and we’re not there yet!”

    Forest chuckled at Rin’s candor and picked up the girl and the groceries again. They began their walk home with Forest asking for directions with questions brewing in the vampire’s own mind. The girl smelled like magic and tea, but Forest could sense the magical talent coming off of the girl. Not to mention the girl picked up that the fact that Forest was dead rather quickly.

    Forest prompted, “So, I told you what I was so, are you going to be honest to me?”

    Rin bit her lip and shook her head, her arm tightening around Forest’s head ever so slightly. The gesture alone spoke volumes and Forest silently cursed her dead parents. The girl was obviously starved for affection and she didn’t really realize it herself, or maybe she did and she wasn’t going to admit it. It seemed that Rin was rather ridiculously stubborn.

    Something which Forest could understand all too well.

    Forest got them home in good enough time and let Rin down to unlock the door. She stared up at the huge European style mansion that loomed before her and grimaced at the oppressing feel coming from the building. The wards were so thick and uninviting that Forest wasn’t sure if she even wanted to go into the place after she’d been invited. Rin looked up at her as she opened the door and said, “Well, aren’t you coming in?”

    That was as good of an invitation as any as Forest chuckled and carried the groceries in. The door shut behind them and Forest almost stopped shivering at the cold around her. It was almost as cold inside as it was outside; Forest looked down at Rin and asked, “Why isn’t the heat on, little Rin?”

    “Because it’s expensive so I only have it on when I’m home,” Rin huffed as she showed Forest to the kitchen.

    Forest stopped by the furnace and kicked it on. Rin spun around and asked, “What are you doing?”

    “It’s bloody freezing in here,” Forest grumbled, “No place for a child.”

    Rin glared at her with those aquamarine eyes and said, “I thought cold doesn’t affect a vampire.”

    “Actually, I’m constantly cold unless it’s warm out or I’ve just fed or I’m snuggling close to a warm body,” Forest replied with a grin, silently adding, And it’s been a damn long time since I’ve snuggled next to a warm body.

    Rin asked, “What sort of vampire are you anyway? You don’t have the feel of a Dead Apostle and you’re not a True Ancestor either.”

    “I’m me?” Forest answered with a shrug and a grin, “And how does a little girl know of such things as Dead Apostles and True Ancestors?”

    Rin’s eyes narrowed as she said, “You know what I am, why are you asking? I know you’re not that stupid.”

    “Well, I wanna hear you say it,” Forest said easily as she started to help Rin put stuff away in the kitchen. She frowned and shifted as she looked around. Forest knew she wasn’t domesticated by any stretch of the word. Her idea of cooking was over an open fire with something she’d killed herself after she skinned and cleaned it. As she was now, she really didn’t eat to live and if she wanted to actually eat something solid she’d simply go to a restaurant.

    Rin sighed and said, “Fine, I’m a magus and the head of the Tohsaka line.”

    “And what . . .” Forest didn’t need to finish asking the question. She already knew the answer already. She quietly said, “That battle thing, right?”

    Rin asked, “What do you know about the Grail War?” Then she pointed and said, “Over there, you’re putting it too high.”

    “Oh, okay,” Forest said sheepishly as she put the spice in a place that was easier for Rin to reach. She looked at the girl and answered, “Well that there were a bunch of supernatural entities running around and fighting each other and innocent people were getting hurt.”

    Rin titled her head thoughtfully and asked, “And why did you come to Nippon then?”

    “Because there were probably people getting hurt,” Forest explained, “And I wasn’t needed else where so I came to Fuyuki to see if there was anything I could do. Apparently I came too late for the main event.”

    But I can maybe save a little girl, Forest thought with a smile as Rin looked up at her. Rin asked, “Why would you want to do such a thing?”

    “Because I don’t like seeing people getting hurt,” Forest answered honestly, “At least not when there’s something I can do to keep them from getting hurt because people are evil and dumb.”

    Rin actually chuckled at that and pointed to the can of . . . something Forest was holding. Forest read the label about leeks as Rin said, “Lower shelf, Forest-san.”

    “Just Forest,” she corrected with a grin.

    After a few moments Rin asked, “Is that why you helped me, because you don’t like people being hurt even though I wasn’t hurt?”

    “Well, you’re alone and a little girl. Even if you’re a magus, it’s still not safe for you to be walking around at night. And carrying groceries that are bigger than you are,” Forest added with a grin.

    Rin scowled and said, “You were walking around at night and you’re a little girl.”

    Forest blinked at Rin’s assessment of her and looked down at herself. At 5’10, almost 6 feet when she wore her boots, Forest never really thought of herself as little. She shrugged and said, “Yeah, but I’m also a thirteen hundred plus year old vampire. Not really many things scare me. Except zombies. I really don’t like zombies.”

    “Of course, they smell bad, Forest,” Rin said with a smile as she started to get out stuff to make dinner.

    Forest felt guilty because despite all of her own parental instincts there was the whole cooking issue. She chuckled at Rin’s comment though and said, “But really, I know you don’t have any family members taking care of you, but as a magus there should be another magus you’re under.”

    “There is, but I don’t like him. There’s something about him that really gets under my skin,” Rin replied as she pulled out a cook book and began to look thoughtfully through it.

    Forest asked, “Why not?”

    “I don’t know, but there’s something I really don’t like about that priest, but my father entrusted me to him,” she snorted, “And he apparently has control of the Tohsaka assesses until I’m of age at eighteen.”

    Forest’s instincts started blaring at the mention of a priest. “Oh, that could easily be taken care of,” Forest said wickedly, “So, how would you like to live with me?”
    ******

    Rin stared at the blond vampire as she continued to put groceries away at Rin’s direction. She smiled, her eyes closing as she palmed a can of water chestnuts. Rin honestly wasn’t surprised that a woman who drank blood to exist was confused in a kitchen. She stared up at the beautiful blond as she put the chestnuts down and looked down at Rin with expectant eyes.

    Rin gnawed on her lip and said, “I . . . have a responsibility that I promised my father I would fulfill before he died.”

    “What would that be, Rin?” Forest asked as she perched on the counter.

    Rin turned around and answered, “I need to win the Fifth Grail War.”

    “You mean that thing that killed all of those people, there’s going to be another one and you’re going to have to fight in it?” Forest asked wide eyed.

    Rin nodded and answered, “Yes, I am and I’ll win too, Forest.”

    “Not under the guide of a magus priest, that’s for damned sure,” Forest mused thoughtfully, “Wait, is he from the Church?”

    Rin nodded and knew what would happen if Kieri saw her new friend and found out what she was. She knew magi were supposed to live alone and in secret, but honestly she didn’t want to live alone. She didn’t want to see Forest stabbed with numerous Black Keys either. Forest groaned, “Bugger, okay, that’s it, you’re coming with me Poppet.”

    “What? I can’t do that,” Rin stammered as she looked up at the blond woman, “I mean there’s my training and the Grail War and . . .”

    Forest grinned and said, “Oh, trust me, I can get you better training than by some half arsed Bible Wielding Magus.”
    ******

    “I could not unnerve that man or make him the slightest bit angry,” the broad form snorted as he paced back and forth. His violet eyes were bright and his ink black hair, even blacker than Rin’s especially against the moonlit pallor of his skin, was unbound. Forest tilted her head at her godson as Rin peered up at him.

    Gabriel Umbra swept out his arms and said, “Every trick failed. Even though I think if I would have used the Lure he probably would have responded to it.”

    “I think an asexual rock would respond to you, dear,” Forest said as she ran the brush through Rin’s hair.

    It had been over two weeks since she’d found the little girl walking alone from the market place and they were already a family. Even though Forest knew she was going to have problems when the girl was going to get older with that intelligence of hers. However, it seemed like Rin liked the attention that she’d been getting from Forest even though there were things that Rin wasn’t telling Forest, like about a younger sister that had been given to another family because of stupid magus rules.

    Forest brushed Rin’s hair in the familiar pig tails and tied them off with the black satin ribbon. Rin actually leaned back against Forest, the girl was so starved for affection that it made Forest want to go punch something, mainly Rin’s dead parents. Yet she wasn’t going to push her little girl about her deceased family members and knew Rin would come talk to her when she was ready. The vampire cuddled the warm little girl in her arms as they both looked up at Gabriel.

    Gabriel said, “And there was something there that made me sick, Fore and I don’t know what it was.”

    “Maybe all the death that was there,” Forest mused, “I mean, his dad was the mediator of the Grail War before he died, right?”

    Rin nodded and said, “Makes sense Forest, so Gabriel, what else did Kieri do?”

    “Nothing, he didn’t fight, he just made sure to tell me that you will know when you need to return when the time is right,” he answered with a shrug.

    Forest asked, “You mean he didn’t piss a fit when you claimed the Tohsaka estate?”

    “I honestly don’t think he cared,” Gabriel answered with a shrug.

    Rin chortled, “Makes sense, Kirei doesn’t care about anything, it’s disturbing.”

    “Well, you don’t have to worry about him any more, poppet,” Forest said to her as she turned the girl and placed her in her lap. “Now, what do you need to bring with you to live with me?”

    The girl’s eyes went upward as she thought. It may have just been Forest’s biased opinion, but everything the girl did seemed adorable. Rin then responded to her, “Well, we already packed my clothes, so the only other things I need are my books and my gems. Oh… and I should probably bring that weird knife Kieri gave me.”

    Forest nodded to her and asked, “Where are your books, little Rin?”

    The girl hopped up and tugged at Forest’s arm, looking up at her with those impossible eyes. She led her into another room, her father’s study. There was a desk riddled with notes and the walls were stacked with books. Rin pointed at the wall and said, “Here they are.”

    Forest looked to where she was pointing and thought she could tell a different stack of books, but wanted to make sure. She asked, “Which ones, dear?”

    Rin tilted her head in a bit of confusion and said, “All of them, of course.”

    Dread began to seep into Forest as she looked at the entire room full of books and asked, “All… of them… in this room?”

    Rin nodded happily and said, “Yeah, where there are a few more in my room, but this is most of them.”

    Forest faked a smile, but groaned a bit. From behind her she heard a snort and her godson piped up, “Hey, it’s not YOUR magic that has to move all this crap, so I don’t want to hear it, Godmother.”
    ******

    The next day, after they had finally moved all the books and gotten the rest of Rin’s things to the compound, Forest went to Rin and found her in her old room. The girl was playing with her hair absently, lost in confliction. Forest knew it all too well. The same things had been running through the poor girl’s mind ever since she asked her to live with her.

    There were two parts to the girl, as Forest had found out. One part was the little girl she loved. Rin was actually very caring and pure, with a heart that craved to give and receive love. But that was at complete odds with her other half. The half that had beat into her by her father, Forest suspected. The bullshit life of a Magus filled with secrecy, greed, and solitude that no parent should ever teach their child.

    Forest intended to quash that ideal by raising the child right. It pissed her off to no end when parents polluted their children with shit like this. They should realize that not everyone can HAVE children. That what they have been given was a gift… not a privilege. The girl might not be her offspring… but from now on, she was her daughter.

    Forest kneeled down next to her daughter and asked her, “Rin, are you ready to go?”

    The girl looked up to her and very slowly nodded. Forest took her tiny hand in hers and began to lead her to the foyer, where Gabriel was waiting. Forest knew she was going to owe her Godson some sort of horrific dessert for helping her like this, but it would be a chance to spoil Rin as well.

    Before they entered the room, Rin stopped. Forest turned to her and found her face in utter confliction. “What is it, baby?” Forest asked her, kneeling back down.

    “I… I… didn’t tell you everything, Forest…” Rin admitted. She was almost near tears and blurted out, “I… have a sister… Sakura. She was taken away… but… I don’t want to leave without checking on her… and saying goodbye…”

    “You didn’t say goodbye when they took her, did you?” Forest asked her quietly.

    Tears then did come from her eyes as she shook her head. It broke Forest’s heart to see the girl cry, and she held her close. There was some satisfaction here, though. She knew without Rin saying that she didn’t say goodbye to her sister because it would be showing weakness as a Magus. She didn’t want her father to see her falter and didn’t say anything to the other girl as she was taken away.

    “It’s alright, dear Poppet. I can’t go out in the sunlight, but I’m sure Gabriel will take you to see your sister before we go, alright?” Forest asked her.

    The girl nodded in return and whispered, “Thank you…”

    ******

    “Now you listen to me you little twit!” snarled Zouken once Makiri, now Matou to the blue haired child in front of him. “I don’t care if you understand or not, but for now, you treat that girl like royalty!”

    “Y..Yes, sir!” cried the boy, cowering before him. The child was a disgrace, not worthy of the blood running through his veins… no matter how diluted. Zouken shooed the worthless child away and returned to his study.

    Things were not lost, as he had feared. When the Tohsaka heir had been taken in by some outside interloper, he had feared his plans would be snuffed out. The priest was too melancholy to give a Damn what he was doing, but another Magus or whatever the woman was might not have the same approach. If she had found out what was happening to the other Tohsaka girl, she might have brought the Association down on them.

    However, according to those he entrusted to keep a watchful eye on that accursed house had told him it looks as if the woman was taking the girl away. If this was true, then he was in an even better position than before. There was no one else that knew of the identity of the girl in his house and no one for the girl to reach out for.

    There was a knock at the door and one of his aides walked in and reported, “There is a large foreign man approaching the estate escorting the other Tohsaka child. What shall you have us do, Master?”

    This was perfect. She was coming to say goodbye and make sure her sister was doing fine. The girl had been treated very well so far, and should have no complaints, so things couldn’t have worked out better. “Let them in the gate and allow them to see the girl. Do not allow them in the house,” he replied.

    Zouken’s face twisted into a smile. They could begin the first of the injections as early as tomorrow.

    ******

    “You’re sure you’re OK here, Sakura?” Rin asked her sister.

    The other girl nodded happily, her hair and eye’s matching her own. “Yes, nee-san. It was scary at first, but now it’s OK. They are nice here!”

    Rin smiled and said to her, “That’s good… and I apologize for not saying goodbye last time…”

    The smaller girl’s eyes widened and she said, “Really?? But… what about?”

    Rin held up her hand and said, “No more… I… well, I think I’m going to go my own way. I’m still going to become a Magus and follow Father… but I’m doing it my way. With Forest.”

    Sakura hugged her and said, “That’s good, nee-san. It’s no fun when you’re a meanie.”

    Rin hugged her back and said, “No it isn’t… Goodbye Sakura.”

    Sakura pulled back, a tear in her eye and said, “Goodbye to you, too, nee-san. I love you.”

    Rin choked back her own tear and whispered, “I love you, too, Sakura.”

    ******


    “You know, Gabriel, my sister was watching you for most of the time we were there,” Rin said to the large man escorting her.

    He laughed a bit and said, “Yeah, I noticed that too, Rin.”

    “Don’t get any ideas, mister, she’s still way too young for you!!” Rin said jokingly.

    Gabriel laughed again but soon sobered. “Rin, what do you know about the place where your sister lives now?” he asked her.

    Rin shrugged and answered, “Not much… There was some deal made with my father when the War started between them that Sakura would live with them afterwards. I think it’s because their magical heritage has dried up, and they want to have an heir that at least has potential.”

    “I see,” said the hulking man.

    Rin looked up to him, seeing his face frown in what seemed to be worry. “What’s wrong, Gabriel? Is my sister in danger??” she asked him, tugging on his hand.

    Gabriel nervously laughed and said, “I’m sure it’s nothing, Rin… Just, the house gave me such a sick feeling whenever I got near it. That’s all.”

    “It could be the wards or something,” Rin said thoughtfully.

    “That’s probably it,” said the man, smiling at her.

    Rin knew he was just trying to keep her calm, but she didn’t know any way to really continue the conversation. Sakura had seemed so happy, and there didn’t seem to be any change with her. She was never good at lying either, so she must be happy. Gabriel must be overthinking things, that’s all.

    ******

    Forest was glad to see that Rin returned bubbly and of high spirits. Apparently her sister was fine, and there was nothing holding her back now. The girl had come up and jumped into her arms, already used to her touch. She was giggling and actually had the appearance of a little girl now.

    “So, are you ready now, little one?” Forest asked the girl residing in her arms.

    She nodded and said, “I sure am, Mother…”

    Forest had heard the thought in the girls head a few times, but she had never said anything. Even now, she could see that the girl was blushing and covering her face like she had said something horrible, begging for forgiveness. The little girl couldn’t know the joy that the word brought to her, and Forest asked her, “What was that, my little Rin?”

    Rin peered up at her with those gorgeous eyes and said, “I’m . . . I’m sorry.”

    “Why are you sorry?” Forest asked gently as she rested her forehead against Rin’s with a smile and met her eyes.

    Rin looked down and answered, “I called you Mother . . . I don’t know, but you’re the closest thing I’ve ever had to a mother and it seems right. My mother . . .” Rin’s eyes flashed as she went on, “She didn’t care about Sakura or me. She didn’t do anything when they took Sakura away.”

    “Oh, Baby,” Forest whispered as she held the little girl tighter, icy pricks stinging her eyes at the tears threatening to fall. She simply held Rin close, it was what she had always wanted to hear, but had thought it was impossible. Yet her little girl was openly accepting her as her mother. I’ll swear to you I’ll make up for what your parents did to you, Forest sent to the little girl as she rocked her gently back and forth.

    Rin’s surprisingly strong little arms held her close as Forest held her close, fighting the tears. She felt something wet slide across her cheek and Rin looked up. “Mother! Your eyes are bleeding!” she exclaimed in horror as she reached up and lightly touched Forest’s cheeks.

    Forest gave a tiny laugh and said, “I’m crying Baby, that’s all.”

    “Oh, Mother,” Rin said as she hugged her close this time, “I didn’t mean to make you cry, I’m sorry.”

    “No, no, I’m crying because I’m happy Rin, very happy,” she said with a sniffle as Rin pulled away to look at her.

    Rin stroked her cheek and asked, “Really?” The look of hope on Rin’s face was almost crushing. Forest hugged the warm body close and nodded, stroking her fingers through Rin’s long hair.

    “Really, Baby,” Forest assured her as she carried her to where Gabriel was waiting.

    Gabriel’s eyes lit up at the sight of them and he produced his handkerchief and mopped up her face. Forest laughed at the attention as Gabriel said, “Well, are you two ready to go?”

    Rin nodded enthusiastically as she leaned on Forest with a grin. Forest nodded and said, “Let’s go home.”

    Yup - here we go again.

    . . . At least I have a genuine excuse to skip the lemon scenes this time - I went through them once already.

    Yeah, nice to see this back.

    Also, are you going to do the Sakura version of this that you suggested back on old BL? Because that seemed like it would be a really good story....

    Like that's any kind of reason. Still, it's a good read.

    I'd like to because I have some really wicked ideas for it. It's just one of those things where time is a factor and I don't want to get burned out.

    “Mother!” Forest lifted her head at the familiar shriek as she saw someone that was covered head to toe in mud and clutching a baseball bat in her hands running into the living room. Leaves were sticking up in Rin’s raven, mud streaked pony tail, but underneath the rich, earthy smell of mud Forest smelled the sweet, coppery tang of blood.

    Forest stood up and marked her book before rushing over towards her daughter. She dropped down on one knee and asked, “Where are you hurt, Baby?”

    “I skinned my knee, I swear, I was playing baseball with some of the local boys and they started picking on this other boy,” Rin said as she scowled and looked for a place to sit down.

    Forest frowned and asked, “What happened?”

    “They called him things, mean things you would not want me repeating about his family line. He just sat there and he looked so sad,” Rin said with a sigh as Forest propelled her to the bathroom.

    “So, what happened with the boy?” Forest asked as she started peeling off Rin’s muddy clothing to throw into the wash.

    Rin snorted, “Someone threw a baseball at him. He caught it. Without looking at it.”

    Forest blinked and asked, “Really?”

    “He was really pretty, like you Mother,” Rin said with a tiny smile, “Dark curly hair and dark blue eyes. He seemed really delicate, but he caught that ball so fast without even looking at it.”

    The vampire tilted her head curiously and said, “So, poppet, with what hand did he catch the ball with?”

    “His left,” Rin said, “And then they began to crowd around him to beat him up and he just stared at them like he didn’t care.”

    Forest chuckled to herself and said, “Did you fight all those boys by yourself?”

    “And I won! Except I ended up scraping my knee. Which was weird because that boy watched the blood and had a really odd look on his face, mother,” Rin said as she stepped into the tub and turned on the shower.

    Forest asked, “What sort of look, Baby?”

    “The same sort of look you get when you get hungry.”
    *****

    One thing Forest became quickly aware of as the years pasted was that her daughter’s IQ was about forty points higher than hers, and Forest wasn’t a slouch. Just Rin was brilliant, a genius even if what the IQ test the school made Rin take was any indication of. Gabriel, who was sort of the figurehead guardian because he didn’t have to worry about sunlight and he didn’t look like a teenager, had received many phone calls about Rin’s precarious nature and her intelligence. Her teachers often commented that even though Rin was a model student she seemed bored in most of her classes.

    So by the age of thirteen Rin could speak eight languages including her own native Japanese because Forest had a real quirk with learning and teaching languages. Forest was also very good with music, but that was something Rin could never master. She would get frustrated at the instruments and her singing skills were so off key they were laughable. However, that didn’t stop her from listening to her mother play her beloved violin or hearing her sing.

    However, Forest was letting three other people handle Rin’s training with magic, four with the random visits that Brenna gave when ever the witch was feeling whimsical. She had a feeling that Wynn and Gabriel were neck and neck for her favorite magical teacher. Wynn showed her more practical things, but it seemed that Rin had the same love of books that Forest’s godson did. Forest was glad that Rin was learning things that no other magus would think to learn or even go outside the box to learn.

    Rin didn’t even need to bleed to store mana in her jewels anymore, she had learned the secret to pouring her energy into a stone with focus from a detective acquaintance of Gabriel’s, who was also Japanese. Ami-nee was perhaps one of Rin’s favorite people who wasn’t in Forest’s immediate circle. It wasn’t that Forest didn’t like the small Shinto sorceress, in fact they got along very well, they just didn’t really click for true friendship. However the living embodiment of zen seemed to love Forest’s adopted daughter very much. Still, she was perhaps the strictest instructor she had, even breaking one of Rin’s ribs during a training exorcize once.

    Forest knew she was hard with Rin’s training on occasion but she always took care not to actually hurt her. However Rin adored her martial arts training despite all the bumps and bruises she would receive, and with her reinforcement she was becoming a worthy sparring partner for Forest just for fun. Even though she couldn’t go full tilt on her little girl, she did enjoy the fact that Rin was becoming a force unto herself.

    She smiled as she picked up a photo of Rin and herself standing together in front of the Tower of London. The photo was taken at night of course, but Rin had wanted to visit the tower when she was about ten, because apparently that’s where mages were trained at. She had told Forest she had no desire to be taught in the Tower herself, but she wanted to go there for curiosity’s sake. So Forest pulled some strings to get a night tour and they’d had a wonderful time.

    Forest had locked them in a dungeon as she told Rin a story of when she’d been caught, and escaped, from here herself a really long time ago. Rin had looked up at her and asked why she had been caught and Forest had simply told her, “That’s a story for when you’re older.”

    Then they both ogled the British Crown Jewels, with Forest explaining to Rin that the Prince Black Ruby wasn’t really a ruby, but in fact a spinel. Which was hilarious considering one of the word’s largest diamonds was set right above it. Rin stared fascinated as she mused how much mana each stone could hold, except for the diamonds. They both had learned the hard way that diamonds sucked for magical use because they were so dense and couldn’t hold much mana. Which suited Rin fine because they were too expensive and Forest didn’t like diamonds because they weren’t colorful enough to catch her interest most of the time.

    She traced her finger over the photo and smiled. Rin was bundled up in a bright red coat and wore black wool tights under her black skirt and her hair was in its usual pigtails. She was smiling and her aquamarine eyes were bright as she and Forest embraced. Forest scowled slightly at her tall, gangly body in its long coat and her too big nose. Rin was turning out to be a beautiful girl as they all had predicted, but her inside was just as beautiful as her outside.

    “Mother!” Forest herd Rin shout from outside the library. Forest poked her head out and saw Rin giving her a horrified look. Forest frowned as she put the photo down and walked towards her daughter. She smelled something earthy that smacked heavily of blood coming from the girl as she realized what happened.

    Forest smiled and said, “You started your period, congratulations, Rin.”

    “I’m dying,” the girl wailed as she pressed herself against her mother and Forest drew her close. She continued, “I hurt everywhere and I’m bloated and I smell bad, Mother.”

    She kissed Rin’s forehead and said, “You don’t smell that bad, Poppet. Come on, lets go lay down and I’ll get you a hot water bottle and ibuprofen.”

    ******

    School had almost gotten to the point where it had become a chore for her. Rin spent most of the days trying to dream up new strategies to slip up her mother in training rather than paying attention to whatever the teacher was saying. She was able to pay just enough attention so if she was called upon, she could answer the question and remove doubt from the teacher’s mind that she was slacking off.

    High school was quite a bit different than middle-school in structure, but it boiled down to the same basic practice. She was in the “advanced placement” classes, but even they didn’t provide too much challenge. It probably would have been easy to skip grades, but she was smart enough to know how much that would make her stand out. She didn’t really want to be noticed, even though that was getting rather hard with all the dates she was being asked out on.

    She hadn’t accepted any of the invitations, of course, but it wasn’t so much that she didn’t WANT to go out with a boy, it was more that she hadn’t found one interesting enough. Just like mother, she would wait until someone met her fancy and then she would go from there. But for now, at least, there seemed to be a rule about the boys at this school: Attractive, Single, Mentally Stable – Please choose two…

    What she was concerned with most now was preparing for College. She might just be a freshman, but it didn’t hurt to plan out these kinds of activities far in advance. Especially since she was going to have to manage a ‘study-abroad’ in her junior year and still keep her honors diploma. It was going to be tough to make sure she could count the credits and that they would still be advanced placement.

    The promise to The Man That Gave Me Chromosomes had turned into an annoying one, but if there was one thing Rin Forest didn’t do, it was turn her back on a promise. So even if the Mages Association or her abandoned name meant nothing to her now, there was still her pride and honesty. Mother had told her that she was never allowed to break a promise unless it was made under false pretenses.

    And while it could be argued that it HAD been made under false pretenses, she still held onto it. In his defense, he had told her what the war involved and what her duty was and then asked her to promise. And she had. So there was no turning back on it now. Besides, she was anxious to show those upstart Maguses what a true spell slinger could do.

    So, she would take part in the grail war with mother and her Saber and then return home to finish her high-school education. Doing everything she could, she should hopefully get a full ride to the college of her choosing. Even though it would be nothing for her mother to pay for it, it was important to Rin that she make it her own way. She had taken so much from her mother, she had to become self sufficient as soon as she could.

    She knew Forest didn’t care. Beyond that, she actually enjoyed having someone to use her enormous wealth on, but it clashed with Rin’s ideals. Hell, it clashed with her mother’s ideal paradoxically, but she was overlooking it so that she could spoil her beloved daughter. And Rin loved her, too. More than anything, Rin loved her mother. She owed everything to her and cringed to think what would have happened if she hadn’t picked her up that cold night so long ago.

    “Is something amusing, Miss Forest?” asked the man at the front of the room. She had apparently been smiling again, as she always was when her mind wondered to her mother. Her chemistry teacher seemed to have it out for her, always trying and calling her out. Most probably because she was outscoring the man’s own daughter consistently in the exams.

    “A bit, yes, Mr. Morris,” Rin said to him. “You say that Curie was infected because of the work she did, her contracted anemia was most likely due to her prolonged exposure to radiation. Yet it was said by Albert Einstein that she was the only person he ever knew NOT to be infected by another harmful substance. Fame.”

    “I… see,” said the man and he continued his study in the field of monotone. Rin was already back into her thoughts, planning out her classes for the next few years. And right now, more than the impending Heaven’s Feel, she was more worried that she apparently had to have 4 semesters of some sort of Fine Art; her true nemesis.

    “Mother... are you SURE I can’t go out Hunting with you, tonight?” Rin pleaded, holding the vampire’s arm and tugging at it.

    Her mother sighed and replied, “Not this time, Rin. You have two tests tomorrow, AND you start your job at the supermarket right after school.”

    Rin huffed and said, “Well, it’s not like any of that’s really taxing on me, mother… You know that.”

    “That may or may not be true, baby,” she said to her. Forest’s arms wrapped around her and Rin stared up to the indigo eyes peering down at her. “Don’t underestimate what a change in routine can do to you.”

    Rin sighed and pulled out of the hug, “Fine. I guess I’ll see you later, then… Love you.” She folded her arms and frowned, staring away from the taller woman.

    “Gee, that was heartfelt,” her mother said and she came up and tussled her hair. “And I love you, too, my little Rin.”

    Rin waved her hands above her head to try and bat away her mother’s teasing and ended up giggling again. She hugged her goodbye and was soon alone in the giant compound once again. It seemed pointless, but she pulled out her school books and began to go over what was going to be on the exams.

    ******


    The vibration of her OTHER baby’s 327 V-8 massaged her hands through the steering wheel as Forest drove down the narrow streets. The other reason she couldn’t have her beloved daughter with her tonight was that she was going to try and get some information, and that usually meant bars. Trying to slip Rin into one of those places would have made her task many times harder.

    What she was after was something she had been trying to follow for a couple years now. Her daughter had told her of an odd boy that she had her suspicions about, and now there were more and more reports of some of her kin being attacked by a kid. Most of them had seen it as a joke and had just thrashed the kid to teach him a lesson, but sooner or later, he was going to piss off the wrong customer.

    If she was right, there was a dhampire running around. They were rare, and she knew that the poor boy was going to be hunted soon if anyone else put things together. She wanted to get to him first, so that he might have a chance. There wasn’t much of one at this point, but she was still willing to try.

    The Camaro found its way between two cars along the curb and she hopped out of it. The bar she had come to was about as seedy as they came, complete with the row of motorcycles parked out front. This area wasn’t called Hell’s Kitchen for nothing, she supposed. Still, she had a feeling she would run into an old ‘friend’ here.

    The door to the bar opened, revealing a room no better lit than the street it was next to and there was the familiar turn of heads as she glided into the room. The darkness was welcome to her, as her eyes saw everything as if it were broad daylight and she quickly found who she had come to talk to. She made her way over to a table situated in the back corner.

    Two men were seated there, playing cards with two other men across from them. The two she was interested with were facing her and yellow eyes caught her first. There was a momentary flash of fear before a cool smile formed on the red-heads face. His boot hit the blonde haired hulk of a man next to him, getting his attention and then nodding to Forest.

    “Law Unto her Fucking Self,” said Hawk Hunters. “To what do we owe THIS honor?”

    Forest pulled up a chair and sank gracefully into it before crossing her legs up and swinging the highest one. It was a slight annoyance, but Forest always needed to have some body part in constant motion unless something was truly captivating her admittedly short attention span. Besides, she liked the way Hawk’s eyes lingered on that one black jean clad leg as she bounced it up and down as she eyed both him and the werewolf. She grinned at both and answered, “Well, my dear Hawk, I need information.”

    “I mean, I’ve even been a good boy lately, the Game’s no fun since your side got another piece,” Hawk pointed out as his grin widened and his topaz eyes glinted.

    Like her, Hawk had been turned at nineteen, which was one of the reasons they gravitated to each other. However, in life Forest had been a warrior while Hawk sold his sword arm for money as a mercenary. Even though Forest had done the same herself as partial gain of her mass fortune, she was particular who she sold her skills to or who she had to kill. She was a murder with morals. Hawk was just a murder for money with no scruples.

    Forest grinned and replied, “What, my Baby’s too much for you?”

    “She’s not human and you know it. She’s a goddamn monster,” Hawk proclaimed, “And she’s still in puberty. What the fuck are you going to do when she grows up?”

    She shrugged and replied, “Maybe I’m training an heir, who knows? She’s worthy enough.”

    “No, only you can be Law Unto Herself,” Hawk proclaimed as he pounded his index finger on the table before pointing at her, “Your little monster is not nearly as fun, or hot, as you are.”

    Forest glared and said, “My daughter’s beautiful and you know it.”

    “Yeah, but she’s not my type. Never went into the whole Asian thing. I prefer leggy Celtic blonds with the sort of voice that causes a raging hard on when you hear her say your name,” Hawk retorted with a grin.

    She smirked, tilted her head and purred, “Jason. Hunters.”

    “You do not call him that name you fucking bitch,” Dave snarled at her, his face already starting to become elongated as he turned towards her.

    Forest turned towards him and said, “You’d better sit down before I decide that Hawk’s pet needs to be neutered again.”

    “Listen to the lady,” Hawk said with a chuckle as he turned to face Forest with a grin, “Nicely played, Fore, so what the hell are you here for? I’ve kept my nose fairly clean recently thank you very much.”

    Forest strummed her now crimson fingernails on the scarred wood of the table and replied, “I want information.”

    “About what? And I don’t give it freely, Fore,” Hawk said with a grin, yet he never kept his eyes off of her.

    Forest smiled and answered brightly, “Well, I don’t beat the both of you into miserable bloody piles, how’s that as payment, Hawk my lad?”

    “Maybe I like it when you beat me,” Hawk said with a grin before a frown crossed his face.

    Dave snorted, “Goddamn it, Hawk, just fuck her and get her out of your goddamn system. This fucking game you’ve been playing for the past five hundred years has gone too far. She wins. Every. Damn. Time.”

    “It’s more than just sex I want from her, Dave,” Hawk said quietly as his golden eyes looked over at Forest adoringly, “I want her to want me.”

    Forest grinned and retorted in a sing song voice, “Well, Satan’ll start making snowballs before that happens, Hawk my boy.”

    “Dude, just fucking take her. I’ll hold her down for you and I won’t even take a turn. Besides, she’s too fucking skinny,” Dave said imploringly as he gestured at Hawk.

    Her eyes narrowed and she arched back, flinging her foot up. The steel toed boot caught the werewolf in the chin and snapped his head back. There was a snapping sound like a green twig that reverberated through out the booth, but Dave snapped his head forward with a crack as the bones repaired. He growled at her, his brown eyes already starting to turn golden as Forest calmly flicked her duster back. “I don’t think so, Dave, not unless you want Hawk to lose his loyal pet.”

    “You really think you could take me, Bitch? I’ve kicked your ass before!” Dave snarled as his hackles started to rise as the transformation started to overtake him.

    If he transformed here not even Hawk would be able to pull him back, but Forest didn’t care. One thing she hated with a fiery passion was werewolves. She would have loved to put a bullet between his beady eyes. Then she would have gushed to her beloved Rin about it and then they would have proceeded to squeal over tea, juice and fruit. She smiled, waiting for the transformation and the justification to finally put the mutt to sleep when Hawk reached up, grabbed Dave by the shoulders and pushed him down into the seat.

    Hawk’s eyes glinted like topaz as he sneered, “You do not ever attack her with the intention to kill her, do you hear me? You are mine and you pledged yourself to me. You are bound to follow my orders and you are not to attack her to kill her. You are never to kill or rape her in any fashion, you hear me, David?”

    Forest blinked at Hawk’s semi-impressive display of dominance as Dave bowed his head and rumbled, “I understand, my friend.”

    “Good, now that we got that cleared up, let’s see what Fore wants,” Hawk said with a smile as he playfully tussled Dave’s dark blond mop of hair. Hawk was boyishly adorable with his slightly curly bright red hair and golden eyes with his impish nature. Forest knew he had to be covered head to toe in freckles when he had been alive because he seemed to have that charm about him. So Hawk’s whole faded, beat up blue jeans, red Converse and black T-shirt emblazed with the Anarchy symbol fit him. However, Dave’s grunge look of flannel, longish unkempt hair and baggy, faded rock band T-shirts that seemed to moan their lyrics. And not in the sexy way Maynard moans, Forest thought to herself as Hawk turned to face her.

    Forest said, “Reports of a kid trying to hunt vampires, you know anything, like where it’s happening?”

    “Why do you care?” Hawk asked with a grin, “Could be some kid who’s seen too many episodes of Buffy.”

    Forest snorted, “There is no such thing as too many episodes of Buffy and we both no that. No, I’m trying to stop him from getting killed, Hawk.”

    “Forest the Bleeding Heart,” Hawk sighed, “Off saving puppies and damsels in distress.”

    She snorted, “Not puppies, animals generally do not like our kind. Except for Tweedle Dumb beside you.”

    The werewolf growled but both vampires ignored him as Hawk said, “Still, it’s just one dumb kid, why do you care?”

    Because he could be something really special, Forest thought to herself but aloud she said, “Because you know me, I can’t leave helpless kids be even if they’re out hunting vampires.”

    “You’re hiding something Fore,” Hawk said as his golden eyes narrowed. She felt him reach into her mind, or rather attempt to. She chuckled as he made a face, shook his head and stared at her with a scowl.

    Forest tapped her temple and said, “Hawk, my lad, you should be well aware that you cannot look into my head at this point nor will you ever be able to.”

    He shrugged and said, “Something along Broadway. Ask the whores.”

    She sighed as they resumed their card game. She was half way out of the bar when one of the men that Hawk and Dave were playing cards with grabbed her arm. He had slicked back brownish hair that was obviously thinning in front and bulging unremarkable blue yes. He had an ill fitting suit and smelled slightly oily. She stared down at him and he managed to cower back from her and run his fingers through his slicked back hair.

    “Oh geeze, you are Law Unto Herself . . . You know, you’re fucking hot?” he said with a leer.

    She folded her arms under her small breasts and snorted, “And out of your sodding league. What did you want to talk to me about?”

    “The kid. One of the vamps I run daylight errands for got attacked by him. Beat the living shit out of him and thought nothing of it, thought it was funny even,” the Judas Goat explained with a grin.

    Forest’s lip curled in disgust at the man before her. He was the type that would betray his kind for money or the chance of immortality. She had the urge to punt him across the room, but that would be useless because generally when she got rough with this type they started reeking with lust and that was never a comfortable thing for her. She asked, “And where was this?”

    “Like Hawky-boy said, around Broadway. Apparently the kid haunts alleys but the whores talk to him, say he’s a really pretty boy and he keeps the pimps from getting too rough with them,” he explained with a grin.

    Forest blinked at the rumors spinning around the dhampire boy as the jerk continued, “And when I ran around with the mob there was this kid who use to fight in the cage fights for cash. He’d take down guys twice his size and he was a scrawny little thing, really pretty. Wore a silver cross around his neck, a big one.”

    ******

    It stank here, the hot ammonia smell of urine mixed with the sweetly rotting smell of garbage mixed together in the spring air with ease. Yet it was a smell he was use to. However, getting smacked in the face by a brick wall while smelling old blood mixed with said scents was something else. His vision flashed red as he began to snarl, baring fangs, albeit smaller than the thing pushing him into the wall.

    He let the rage over take him as he shoved his hands between and away from the arms holding him against the wall. He knew the thing was stronger and faster than him, but he knew a hell of a lot about leverage and how to use his own enhanced strength and speed. Yet the hunger pangs in his stomach and the lack of calories supplying his metabolism of what it needed to function was vexing as well. He knew he couldn’t starve to death though, even if his body did began to cannibalize itself.

    Besides, there was another route he could take if it got to far. It would be easy he realized as he was slung against the wall again with a hand on his throat. He placed his hands on the wrist holding him and he got a flash. He clinched his eyes shut, trying to force the vision from his mind but it was too great.

    The girl was hot under him, she smelled like vanilla, sweat, and sweet, metallic blood. She screamed and pushed on his shoulders as he reached down to lift her skirt up onto her belly. That only made him harder as those wide, soft brown eyes stared fearfully up at him. He smirked as he nuzzled the hollow of her throat as he easily ripped off the pink cotton barrier.

    “No,” he sneered at the thing holding him, even more of a monster than he’d originally thought. He ripped off his cross and drove it straight into the thing’s eye. There was a rewarding pop as cool fluid that smelled saltier than blood and felt sort of like jell-o that they use to serve at the orphanage hit his hand. Then there was a hot sizzle as the holy item of the cross backed by his faith, pathetic as it was, started to burn the vampire’s eye.

    Smoke rose from the vampire’s face as the boy forced his cross free and took a stance. The vampire lunged at him and pinned him to the wall. There was snarling in his throat as the thing sneered, “I know what you are, brat and I’m going to kill you.”

    “Didn’t think you could fucking kill anything else that wasn’t a little girl,” he retorted as his air supply began to cut out.

    His eyes widened in horror as the vampire smirked as he reached up and played with a lock of curly, dark brown hair. “You know what, you’re exceptionally pretty, especially for a boy.”

    Ice ran through his veins as he was pressed harder into the wall. His chest tightened as his heart started to race in his chest as the vampire whispered, “I think I’ll take you before I kill you, boy.”

    “Oh geeze, a pedophile as well as a murder, that’s bloody original,” a female voice drawled behind the vampire. The boy looked up, half expecting the girl with the aquamarine eyes from so long ago, the image of those eyes narrowing with fire on his behalf as she took on all of those boys by herself and won was burned into his brain forever.

    However, instead of raven hair and large, aquamarine eyes set into gorgeous Asian features, a tall, slim blond with one eyebrow cocked wearing a leather duster stood there. The dim lights coming from the street haloed her long, golden hair as she stood behind the vampire as she placed one hand on her hip and drawled, “Now here is the part where I demand that you let the boy go before I kill you.”

    “And who the hell do you think you are thinking that you could kill me?” the vampire hissed at the blond.

    The blond tilted her head, much like a crow’s the boy realized, as she said, “You stupid pillock, I’m older and probably more infamous than you.”

    The boy’s head jerked towards the blond and his eyes widened as he felt the cold, familiar rush of power signaling what she was. She was another vampire, but he didn’t feel the incapacitating urge to kill when she was around. He didn’t know if because she was female, because he’d never encountered a female vampire before, or what, but he didn’t feel the all compelling urge to kill her. “What, you sense something I’m not halfbreed?” the vampire holding him sneered as he pressed the boy against the wall with his knees between his legs.

    “Don’t call him a half breed, wanker,” the blond continued in her lilting, almost sing song accent in her husky voice, “It’s rude and distasteful.”

    “Get away you stupid bi . . .” The vampire never had the chance to finish his insult when the cannon roar deafened the boy. Fire shot through the alley, illuminating it for a moment as the vampire’s head exploded like a melon all over the boy’s face. He sneered at the blood and thicker things that splattered on him and it smelled cold and moldy.

    He stood there, not moving a muscle in fear that the blood and other things were going to get worse when the blond walked over to him. She smiled and it was beautiful. Nothing like the Asian girl that one time, but she was gorgeous and like his aquamarine eyed angel, she’d saved him. She made a face and said, “I didn’t mean to get you messy, lad, but why don’t you come with me.”

    “Why? You’re a fucking vampire too,” he sneered at her.

    To his amazement, the blond reached out and boxed his ear. Combined with the already ringing from the gun shot it made the boy’s head spin and he had to keep hold of the wall so he wouldn’t fall. However it wasn’t antagonistic considering the glare now marring her cameo like features.

    “First off, you’re too young to use that language. Second off you’re too young to be a beggar and a vagrant. So you’re coming home with me,” she said as she grabbed his arm and started to drag him out of the alley.

    McJon01: We all know that the real reason Archer would lose to Rider is because the events of his own Holy Grail War left him with a particular weakness toward "older sister" types.
