Incapacitating the vulnerable

Post by Vaughan Dimitru on Tue 06 Sep 2016, 04:53

Emergency at Grand University Hospital was a chaotic and traumatic place where people sat like zombies, some having waited hours for news of loved ones brought in while others sat in lines having filled out countless forms in order to be seen by a doctor or triage nurse to diagnose and treat whatever seemed to be ailing them. It was one place where a high street businessman could be seen sitting next to the local drunkard and soccer mum who frantically nursed her ill child in desperation. The emotions ran high, a cataclysmic whirlpool of tension and exhaustion filling the sterile smelling facility rooms. This one destination where life could begin and end only rooms apart.

Oxen Jurisdiction had held strong after warring factions had clashed with those of supernatural blood and in some areas the lines had blurred with subtlety as mortals and immortals had found themselves questioning and weakening themselves into pacts of peace for the greater good. Still even Vaughan could see that Ox Corp was a supreme force fueled by money and propaganda and that in itself had created enough unrest and hysteria upon the masses to give the humans an edge over their enemies. It was difficult to see a day in the future where a lycan could spend a night out without being guarded or a vampire holding a blood thirsty event at a local club. But even as Vaughan walked innocuously through the hallway of emergency dressed in bio hazard scrubs he could see points of weakness that a creature such as himself could exploit and potentially influence for his own business and pleasure. After all Vaughan was bored and felt the consistent need to sate his desire for more. Plague was long gone no thanks to his daughter and though Mayhem was gaining a steady influx of souls there was something lacking in his mind. Where in the hell Xaphan seemed to be Vaughan did not know or care. Since then he had attacked his sister after finding her poking her nose where it wasn’t needed, stringing her bloodied and beaten unconscious body from the trees to serve as a severe warning in the black woods since he had last seen his brother there. But wandering through Arcane had become to bothersome due to the foothold held by Ox Corp.

He was strategic in the approach, not at all afraid to walk blatantly into the hospital among the occupants but sly enough to have worn the bio-hazard scrubs since it provided cover and access in terms of security and gave some thoughtful explanation for the decaying smell which would have lingered in the air from mayhem. All types of horrific injuries and material could be found in a hospital and Vaughan had selected wisely. A simple human made contact lens had given Vaughan the ability to hide his true eye coloration and a smile had broadened across his face when he thought how the package made by man was now serving a purpose against them. He had managed to retract his wings enough as he had been able to achieve prior to his advancement in ability and it was one more benefit for his own evolution.

“oh I am so sorry!” A teary eyed mother fumbled as she walked into the trolley Vaughan was pushing towards a service lift. The trolley was a secure bin marked with the hazardous waste signs and luckily sealed. The woman’s hands had braced the side of the trolley lid, her fingers brushing accidentally over Vaughan’s knuckles.
“…wow your hands are so cold” She had mumbled in some surprise as Vaughan casually reaffirmed his grip on the trolley, lifting a smile as he nodded.
“It’s okay…I get that a lot” he dismissed her comment, continuing to the service elevator and pressing the button. The woman had been left behind to sort out the blur in her mind and head back to where she had been waiting for news of her husband’s condition. As he stood waiting for the doors to open to the elevator, Vaughan drank in the intoxicating scent of pheromone in the air, his mouth salivating at the mixture of adrenaline and raw emotion.

"Ughhh.... wait..what..what the fuck" he couldn't move, his hands lifted a fraction only to meet with a cold steel surface, his legs the same. It was pitch black and cold, the scent of anticeptic strong enough to make him dizzy. His head throbbed worse then the come down from a week long bender only he could not recall the enjoyment of such a thing.
“God where am I?” trying to stretch himself out he found that he had less then quater of a foot between him and the cold metal surface, not much wriggle room at all. The whole thing was reminicent of something that haunted him. It reminded him of being buried, that same trapped feeling and the need to get out. Only this time he knew better he knew he could not claw his way out, he was sealed in some sort of metal container.
“OK.. pheew keep it cool Mal..just think” he could not use his powers to melt the container, the metal would just concuct it around him. He couldn't will anything to move as he did not have the range in the darkness. He tried to work up enough strength in the small space to either kick of punch his way out but that proved pointless as he didn't have enough space.
He didn't know how the hell he came to be in such a place or who had put him there but he must have been there for some time, his weakness proved that, he only knew that now he had no way out in desperation he had even tried to use his power against his former judgment only to have the jolt redirect into himself his body far to malnourished and weak to control it.

Two days passed.
He had been singing to himself, or screaming, hell he didn't know anymore when suddently a sound penetrated the darkness. Someone was there. Suddently light blinded him, a door behind his head pulled open as what ever he lay on slid him out into the open. Some sort of moan must have slipped out of him at that point as the voices of two women screaming threw him at high speed back into the real world. Sitting bolt upright he tried to work out what the hell was going on, only to suddenly be surrounded by what seemed like dozens of people in white coats, shining things at him, asking him questions he couldn't follow, grabbing at him.
“Hey..hey Get off” he pushed them away his runes flickering weakly into life which only caused more comotion and some more screams. “Get off” he stood up and started to push them away forgetting his strength compared to the avarage human he sent a few of them flying as he fled the room in total and utter disorientation. Stumbling into the hallway underneath the sign morgue he looked around trying to find the closest escape route ...and that was when he saw him.
“YOU!” over by the lift, it didn't matter what he looked like, that he had his little costume on, Romal would have known him anywhere and in any crowd.
Now should Romal have been in his right mind he would have known he stood no chance, he had not fed in god knows how many weeks, he had no idea what had happened to him, no idea of the injuries he was probably healing from. Unfortunatley for him he wasn't, he was half crazed nothing yet making sense all.
By now people were panicked, security had been dispatched towards him, the crazy half dead man in the gown who moments before had been a corpse but he barely noticed his gaze set on his brother who he had begun to move towards like some how he could have any impect upon him. He wanted to save Vaughan so badly that he didn't care, even if saving him was in the form of killing him.

there was often a long debate during brotherly arguments in the Dimitru family as to who had the ability to fuck something up the most. once upon a time it had often been Vaughan who silently cared about the impact their mistakes caused against others and had often been a brooding shadowed figure in such times. it was no longer such a way and the moment a clear voice pinpointed him, Vaughan's figure turned, a glaring expression as he laid eyes upon Romal. His brother had seen better days, stumbling towards him disorientated and with urgent abandon. He looked as petty and weak as Vaughan's opinion had grown of him and it was now only supported further by an irritable anger. had Romal kept himself far from Vaughan neither one of them would be in the positions they would be in next, the screaming of people filling the emergency hallways with more hysteria while a group of uniform clad security guards crashed through the far entrance doors. Vaughan knew his cover was instantly destroyed, after all why on earth would something so foreign to mortals call someone who was seemingly just one of them? he couldn't play a victim, it would not stop the advance of security. Still it would provide just enough of a cover to confuse them and with that lasting thought, Vaughan allowed his younger brother to advance towards him.

Vaughan pointed towards himself with a look of confusion and mock fear, maneuvering the trolley to his side so that as Romal approached, Vaughan's hand pushed the handle of the trolley, sending the cart down the hall the way his brother had come. It was well timed as the doors to the elevator had opened and Vaughan's hand swept over to Romal's shoulder.
"You again" he sneered as his fingers curled in a tight grip around the flesh of Romal's shoulder, talons breaking through the gloves Vaughan had been wearing and prickling into the skin. With swift motion Vaughan used his other arm to pull his brother against his form, ignoring any anticipated attack from his brother and instead thinking ahead of the immediate intercept. His eyes focused on what was happening behind Romal, the appearance and approach of the security more of a hazard to him than his good for nothing sibling. Taking the step back and using his grip on Romal's shoulder, Vaughan pulled them both backwards through the elevator doors. There was no waiting for the doors to close, instead he released his grip from Romal and flicked his fingers, the elevator doors slamming closed, far quicker than they would have normally. Sealing the door shut, Vaughan scowled at his brother, shoving his palms flat against the chest of Romal and sending him into the wall of the elevator.

Sensory overload threatened to overwhelm Romal as he moved towards his brother. The sounds of screaming voices, slamming doors and running feet hammering through his head uncomfortably. It would have been something he normally would have been adept in filtering to control. Each action causing reactions in the currents around him yet in his starved and disorientated condition he had little chance at controlling any of it. Stepping one foot then the other towards his sibling seeing to be the only real control and destination that he had, the desire to break through to Vaughan stronger then anything else, logic not something he could grasp.

Recognition marked Vaughan's face in the form of an unkind scowl and it was one that Romal had started to become used to. His brother looking at him with nothing more then annoyance and loathing. Angel's had been Romal's biggest fear for so long yet as he looked upon Vaughan he felt the fear of his brother equalled if not surpassed it.
Romal could live with himself if some how he killed an Angel, he was unsure if he could were he to against the odds succeed in killing his brother, even if in doing so he freed him.
Recognition moved onto pretend confusion and fear as Romal progressed across the room, managing to move just fast enough to avoid the security, a portable table shooting passed him towards them giving him more time.

Pain radiated through his shoulder, claws slicing through flesh to the bone in another familiar sensation as he tried to shy away from it Vaughan only pulling him closer then backwards as he stumbled through the doors and into the lift the doors slamming loudly, shaking through his skull.
Without time for response he flew back the short distance into the wall of the lift, the metal indenting against his body before he landed against the floor the force taking his legs out from underneath him.

Upon his side he groaned exhaustion threatening to finish him off where he lay before Vaughan had even had a chance to properly lay into him.
Pushing his fingers into the floor, one hand moving to grip a hold rail he started to drag himself upwards, his head raising to look at what was once his brother, a question, naïve yet simple upon his lips. Giving air to a simple hope he had been holding out on the whole time. His state mentally and physically allowing him the vulnerability to at last speak it.
“Is it over, there is no coming back from this is there?” trying to save Vaughan seemed pointless, he knew he couldn't beat him, not any more. He had been unwilling to believe it, unable to accept his brother was lost to them all. “You are not my brother are you..”

The Dimitru brothers had disappeared behind the doors of the elevator as Security guards crashed into the loose trolley Vaughan had pushed in the way. It hit the first guard in spectacular fashion, tipping over and sending the contents of biohazard bags and contained waste sprawling over the floor and naturally over the guards who had not stopped in time and tripped over the first fallen guard. Staff and patients nearby had clambered out of the way in panic while the bio hazard bags lay strewn in a mess on the floor, some fluids leaking from their containers since they had become damaged in the fall. It caused only more problems for the people near the elevator and senior hospital staff were immediately forced to enter into a forced lockdown. It was perfect to stall some of the guards closest to capturing the Dimitru’s though it would not stop the alert which screamed over the announcement system of a security breach.

Behind the doors stood Vaughan, his talons coated in a thin sheen of Romal’s blood as his brother sank to the floor under the metal imprint of his body beside Vaughan’s feet. The elevator shook violently as Vaughan used his abilities to force the machine against its mechanical pull, sending it down manually towards the basement levels of the hospital rather than pressing a button. The cogs in the shaft groaned as they moved, the electronics of the elevator display flickering as it failed to register a command. The elevator moved much quicker than normal, the sensation of dropping at a rapid rate no worry for Vaughan as he had a solid control on the machine. And as they were sent downwards Vaughan’s attention mildly entertained the presence of his brother who exhausted a groan from his body and struggled to pull his own weight up from the floor. It was as though Romal were an animal, struggling to rise and continue after being hit by the force of a vehicle or something just as horribly dramatic. The image of his Romal before him radiated weakness and Vaughan took pleasure in tasting the wisping scent of adrenaline which smoked from his brother’s form.

Asking if there was any coming back from this present moment Romal had looked upwards at Vaughan who gave careless regard for his brother’s question and instead stood awaiting the elevator to reach his intended destination. It was Vaughan who was in control and now he would not let anything get in the way of creating disturbing havoc for Ox Corp and Arcane’s mortals, if immortals and those he had once regarded as his blood got in the way he wouldn’t bat an eyelid or shed a tear in despair. The added question of Vaughan not being Romal’s brother prompted a smirk and a chuckle from his elder brother and there was a break in silence as Vaughan looked down while Romal struggled to drag himself up from the floor. His neck craned slightly as he looked at Romal as though he were an eagle watching its prey and the chuckle grew louder.

“funny to believe that you would ask if I am your brother after so many years of wishing I was not” Vaughan replied with venom in his tone, taking the opportunity in the moment to lift his right hand, swiping it across to backhand Romal swiftly across his face with sense of amusement that would have once seen Vaughan repulsed by.

The pit of his stomach lurched his fingers curling tighter against the hand rail as they began their decent through the building at an alarming speed. It took him a moment to realize that it was all Vaughan's doing and the lift had not in fact some how become detached due to the force of him colliding with one of it's walls.
The power was forced and of demon origin, it was not something that Romal could use as the coherent part of his brain sought out other electrical currents to drain, only managing to tap into a pitiful amount of electricity from the flicking light bulb above their heads. The surge provided him with nothing more then a slightly heightened nervous system which in his current state did not offer him any favours.

Cold indifference was what met his plea like questions, it was what he had expected even though as always he had hoped for something else, he had hoped that beyond all reason he would have been able to reach Vaughan when really deep down he knew he could do no such thing.
Pulling himself onto one knee then sloppily onto his feet he turned his side against the indented wall for some stability as he looked upon his brother with nothing more then unconcealed defeat pride not something Romal found himself caring about.

He was tired, he had fought Vaughan for so long and put everything he had into it. He wanted his brother back, he wanted to protect his other siblings and as he now looked upon Vaughan it all just seemed pointless. He could scarcely injure Vaughan long enough to slow him down, he stood no chance in helping any of them. He was torturing himself and prolonging the inevitable. Yet even with all of that, the crushing failure that frustrated and dispirited him more then anything else he had ever faced he turned and faced Vaughan once more dull eyes focusing upon the unkind mask his sibling wore as Vaughan looked at him like something stuck on his shoe.

The words were as painful as the blow which sent him twisting onto the floor landing painfully with a gasp against his hip and shoulder as the side of his face throbbed his head spinning semi stunned from the force. He wanted to argue to correct Vaughan. The hatred Vaughan once faced at his own hands was not from him, it was from a mind twisted and reshaped by their father, Romal had felt never known guilt like the guilt he suffered from the pain he had caused them all. He loved his family yet again he faced the prospect of losing them.
Rolling onto his back he grimaced his eyes swimming in an unfocused haze. “Why are you doing this, Vaughan?”

Romal had been sent back to the floor by the backhand Vaughan had delivered and though Romal often had a knack for finding an opportunity to cause harm to Vaughan the elder brother did not care an inch about what he was doing while Romal gasped and writhed. The elevator shook as it slowed somewhat in descent before the machine finally reached the basement level, the cables in the shaft wobbling which sent echoes through the empty space. Vaughan pushed the doors open with his telekinesis and with just as little thought he reached down, using his talons like skewers to jut into Romal’s shoulder.

The question had been asked of him once before, when Asha had first encountered her brother in the middle of Arcane. Of course Vaughan could not give a reason, he was void of any emotion or emotive memory which could possibly give some explanation as to how he had reached this point in time. Instead he was more animal and brute than demon with a conscience. He lacked the kind of emotion and empathy he had once possessed which undoubtedly made him who he was. Without these he was simply the monster, raw power in a beast that knew no bounds. As his talons sunk into Romal’s flesh the muscles of Vaughan’s hand tightened in a hold, dragging Romal out through the elevator doors beside him. He would use him as bait or distraction, whatever was needed to advance his own position in the sick games he now played. The alarm echoed over the announcement system while Vaughan seemed to almost reminisce for a moment.
“the question is why not.’ He answered finally as he paced through the hallway, lit by large overhead tube lights which gave the entire space an eerie feel. The clinical white of the tiles and floors reeked of sterile cleaning fluid but it now mixed with the wafting scent of blood and mayhem.

‘finally after all these years of being tortured, of feeling the very things that make us weak I am complete. Nero never meant to harm us, he simply understands that our kind were not made to be kind. I have embraced and realised my full potential and hell, with plague long gone and father in his little playpen I answer to no one’ Vaughan murmured as he walked, all the while keeping a clenched hold as he dragged Romal with him. As he continued a terrified cleaner appeared, the man’s screams doing nothing more than irritating Vaughan’s senses. He continued on despite the cleaner cowering, making his way to the quarantine areas where he had intended on finding biohazard and virus material harmful to mortals. He would use it and release the virus into the air vents of the hospital, he would give Ox Corp the chaos they had come to warrant.

The floor beneath him came to a jolting stop as Vaughan forced the doors loudly to part. His brother's talon's once again found his flesh curling through it to scrape against the bone severing through muscle tissue causing involuntary twitching of his fingers as he grimaced in pain, teeth gritting together as his eyes narrowed a hiss of pain leaving his lips. A numbing cold soon running down the limb as Vaughan began to drag him.
His other hand shot up to grasp the wrist of his brother, pulling himself up as close to it as he could to try and take some of the strain from the tearing flesh.
He knew better then to twist or try to get away it would only further the damage to his shoulder and have him run the risk of the talons shifting towards his throat.

A smear of blood lay before him as Vaughan pulled him Romal silenced by the words his brother spoke when he answered his question.
The mention of Nero's intentions enraged him but he did not dare speak yet, Vaughan was well and truly gone, to say such words in reference to their father was proof enough to enforce the fear Romal had.
Vaughan was right, he did answer to no one now. He was in a league of his own and it was one that Romal stood no chance against, none of them did, he was now more then what Nero had intended him to be. He was a monster with no restriction. Truly and terrifyingly free.

As they moved by a cowering mortal Romal started to notice signs littered around them. Medical waste and bio hazardous materials lay all around them. It was a storage area safe away from the public, he began to piece a motive together, working out why his brother was in the hospital, the memory of the trolley he pushed into the security guard replaying through his mind, that too contained the same dangerous matter. Vaughan intended to use it as a weapon, to cause mass destruction to as many as he could.

For the most part Romal avoided humans, hated them at times, he had often been callous about their lives, usually endangering them without much thought. But this was different Vaughan was about to go out of his way to cause pain and suffering.
A sense of frantic clarity came to him as he quickly looked around his arm dropping away from Vaughan to reach out towards an electrical transformer panel he was being bragged past.
His own talons curled shooting forth from bloodied fingers as he growled stretching as much as he could against the ripping of his shoulder until he pierced the board with explosive results.
Piercing white light shot through the room, Romal being thrown backwards with force though the basement, losing sight of Vaughan as he connected with a large metal bin.
Crumpling to the floor he coughed remaining still his body seeking out the now open energy source to super charge him as quickly as possible so he could at least try and stop his brother from the terrible act.

Romals fingers now bound his brother’s wrist, sounds of hisses from his lips hitting Vaughans ear with clarity but making no difference to the situation at hand. As Romal struggled while Vaughan dragged him along he maneuvered his arm for comfort, countering the dragging of Romal’s body as his little brothers wriggling. The cleaner who had been cowering had still remained squatting in the corner of the hallway as he watched Vaughan drag Romal down the hallway, terror in his eyes as he stared at the blood trail and the nonchalant way Vaughan had simply moved past as though he had not existed. The man had trembled as he mumbled out the first prayer which had come to mind, not even sure it was at all correct before finally there was enough distance between them all for the man to scuttle up onto his feet and dash for the elevator, panicking when he got into the elevator and repeatedly jammed his finger into the doors closing button but nothing happened due to Vaughan’s manual jolting of the mechanical lift breaking its system. In the man’s mind he was going to die and as such as the doors remained open the man scrambled out and slammed his way through the stairwell door, his screams and scuttle of shoes echoing from the doorway as the door slowly shut

Vaughan had hauled Romal down towards the laboratory, caution signs and hazardous waste bins placed at the entry doorways to each room as they continued. Romal however had connected the dots and anticipated his brothers motif and as a result Vaughan had not seen Romal reach for the electrical transformer, so concerned with heading for the right room that he was unprepared for the blast of electrical current which exploded from the exposed cables, a current striking through Romal and Vaughan which effectively threw the two of them apart. The flash of light gave a stunning moment of disorientation and Vaughan was thrown into the wall on the opposite side of the hallway not too far from Romal who had been thrown on the other side of a bin, connecting with its side. Vaughan’s wings were crushed against his back as he impacted with the wall, a loud shudder vibrating through the wall as he hit the ground with a sharp gasp and following snarl. The band which tightly bound his wings had snapped during the impact and the leathery black wings expanded, straining against the biohazard jacket Vaughan was wearing. He flexed them as he stammered to his feet, his wings effectively ripping the seams of the jacket which sent the strips of material flying apart and to the ground. It exposed his torso and now very obvious wings which eliminated his cover over all.

Getting to his feet he shot a glare in the direction of where he could hear his brother, his snarl rumbling in a low growl as he headed back to seize Romal once more, snarling as he moved,
“you little bastard, still insistant upon fucking things up I see” Vaughan snapped as he swiped a hand around the corner of the bin before he had seen Romal. He was intent on following through with his plans even if his little brother was going to be a screw up.

The weight of impact upon the container had taken it out of him more then he had considered. The length of time he had been out of action working against him even as he drew as much energy as he could from the now open mains, bolts of energy arching across the ground towards him as he consumed their power.

Vaughan had managed to get to his feet quicker then Romal his recovery much swifter as he raised with cloth and wings flying upwards from his back, the cloth collecting upon the floor as the black wings remained making Vaughan look even more imposing then he had done before.

His retribution and anger came quickly as he growled at Romal rushing across to the bin clawed hands swiping out to reach him.
Pushing his back against the bin he twisted himself away from the attempted attack the talons scraping against his side opening flesh wounds as he winced but managed to avoid capture.

Pushing off from the bin he threw himself down onto his back kicking out at it as hard as he could in an attempt to have it collide with Vaughan and slow him down enough for Romal to put some ground between them to recover and build his strength up.
"You're the one fucking things up"
Watching the bin shift he didn't wait to see if it worked, rolling onto his side to push himself back up onto his feet, some speed and energy returning to him as he absorbed what was left over from the surge the best of the floor around them losing all electricity.

"What's your end game here, Vaughan?" he called from across the room, stalling the best he could not seeing anyway out of the fight.
"Isn't it all just pointless?"

Vaughan could feel the tips of his talons catch something; tearing into Romal’s skin but not at all deep enough to gain a hold. Instead Romal had manage to roll away from the strike and Vaughan’s talons stuck against the bin metal hard, a screeching sound as the tips of his claws scraped backwards against the metal surface. Romal was getting away from him and Vaughan’s attention was now focused on his brother. He had not been the target coming to the hospital but as time progressed, Romal was making things far more of an issue for Vaughan.

Romal had kicked the bin in his escape, forcing the metal container to slide into Vaughan, pushing him back with force as Vaughan tried to work the tips of his claws out of the puncture holes in the bin. It blocked him from his younger brother and Vaughan tried to use his wings to combat the movement of the bin. He was enraged, finding the interception just as annoying as the questioning from his brother. He used his talons, stabbing them into the metal of the bin and pulling himself up from the ground his wings flexing for leverage. As he got to his knees he roughly pulled his hands back from the bin, the metal container shaking as he yanked his talons from the holes. He levitated himself up and onto the top of the bin, wings stretching outwards as far as the hallway wall would allow. Romal was now back within his sights and Vaughan’s face pulled a twisted smile.

“Oh this isn’t the end game Romal, it is just the beginning.” Vaughan told him as he stayed ontop of the bin rather than move towards his brother. He wanted to skewer Romal, taunt him for days but he was in the middle of a game that Vaughan intended to finish sooner rather than later. Romal provided bait for security and the bin in the way now added just one more obstacle which would allow for Vaughan to have extra time even if only seconds to secure the biohazard material that would be used to cause havoc.

“Why care so much Romal? These ants are likely to end you quicker than I would allow and frankly someone needs to restore a little balance around here.” Vaughan explained, ‘I might only walk the earth these days to have some fun but even the smallest of threats in a large populous presents a hazard, think of it as thinning out the herd.” He added, “Seems like you don’t like to play along so wait here.” Vaughan finished jokingly, as though Romal was coming along for the ride. It would not be long until security entered through the stairwell and he expected them to encounter Romal for a diversion.

With the same evil sneer on his face Vaughan turned and jumped down from the bin, taking off to the laboratory away from Romal.

His hand moved to cup his side protective as the bin slid away taking Vaughan to a further distance, mismatched eyes following his brother as he mounted the bin with seeming ease.
He would have done with a little more energy before the circuits has blown but he had at least taken enough to provide himself with better movement and clarity, no longer feeling as though he would fall asleep at any moment.
He waited for another attack to come, or for Vaughan to advance upon him with those talons that had so often in recent months skewered his flesh yet Vaughan remained upon the bin seeming to take notice of his question as he replied.

Only the beginning was something Romal had not wanted to hear. They had all been through so much and Vaughan had done so much damage all ready he just wanted it to end one way or another even if the ending meant that Vaughan ceased to live. The brother they all new and loved seemed like a distant memory when facing the monster Plague had allowed him to become.

Romal himself had stood on the otherside before, influenced and changed by Nero, he had been the same type of monster but he had still been able to feel. There were still moments of conflict where he would try to reach out, or at least restrain himself. Yet with Vaughan there were no such indications to give evidence that his brother was somewhere deep down still very much live.

Vaughan asked him why he cared but then did didn't stop for the answer, he was just wasting time and teasing him while he still could.
Apparently time had run out as Vaughan jumped down from the bin, the sound of heavy footsteps and shouting coming from the stairwell which opened out just behind where Romal now stood.

He had been so distracted by Vaughan that he had not noticed they were soon to be swarmed by humans with weapons designed for the likes of them.
Growling an lilac runes sparked into furious life his black veins pulsing beneath his flesh as the mismatched eyes darkened to empty coal pools.
He had thought he was stalling Vaughan the whole time yet some how his brother had managed to turn that around onto him, stalling him with no escape.
He either tried to follow his brother and go through him or he would have to face an unknown number of heavily armed security guards. Both offering a great threat in his weakened state.

Extending his hand a flash of white followed by a jagged bolt of red flung from him crackling through the air towards his brother aiming to at least knock him off his feet, even if it meant capture he had no choice but to try and stop his brother from releasing the chemicals into the hospital ducts.

Vaughan had made several strides down the hallway after jumping from the bin, the echoes of security and ox corp soldiers beginning to fill the air as they came rushing from the stair well. He was so confident and exact in his plan that Vaughan had turned his back upon Romal, leaving him behind like waste for the soldiers to flock upon like vultures. Only in this moment did he also give lack of attention to what state Romal was in. His younger brother had enough power to draw on the electrical current and using his ability set forth a searing bolt. The sound of electricity crackling through the air was accompanied by the shattering of glass as the bolt of electricity snapped through the air, shattering the laboratory glass screens. It was impossible to avoid the current in the hallway and Vaughan felt the heat of the current as it impacted against him, the current surging through him as the pulse sent his feet from out of beneath his body. Pain accompanied the hit as Vaughan hit the ground on his side, sliding across the smooth floor into a wall, smoke and debris filtering into the air from Romal’s hit. He let out a pained hiss as the knock took the air from his lungs and his hands scraped at the floor to find stability.

Behind him the Soldiers entered like a swarm of ants, pushing each other through the doorway with shouts and commands. The light form the bolt however had slowed them significantly, blinding in nature as the current shot across the room like lightening. With guns raised towards the creatures, one closer than the other the mortals took advantage of their number to stand united.

The hit had made enough of an impact to stall Vaughan, the pain much more than what had occurred previously from Romal kicking him with the bin. Still with Ox Corp soldiers and hospital security now present and much sooner than originally estimated, Vaughan pushed to his feet, gritting his teeth to ignore the burning of flesh as marks from the bolt had appeared in blistering lines across the backs of his legs. Reaching the end of the hall at the laboratory marked with cautionary and hazardous waste signs he hip and shouldered his way through the door, flinging the metal door open and entering the room, his breath short and hurried as eyes searched for the right material. The room was stark and clinical, metal tables which resembled those from the morgues. There were racks of tubes and equipment, the tables surrounding the room covered with various machines and marked trays of test tubes. It was the hooded box however that caught Vaughan’s attention and as he listened to the oncoming rush of soldiers he sprang across the room, unceremoniously using his hand to punch through the glass of the locked cabinet beside the hooded box, fingers fumbling and curling around one of the silver canisters there. His brother did not have to participate, nor like what Vaughan was doing. In Vaughan’s eyes Romal would soon understand why they were the apex predator, not the mortals.

Glass fell from the cabinet as Vaughan withdrew his hand, the silver canister in hand and ready to be released. Remaining shards either teetered in the frame of the cabinet door or splintered into the flesh of his hand, small cuts evident from the blood which escaped.
Turning he let out a hearty laugh, sounding much more like the laugh one would expect to hear from a person enjoying a celebration rather than the horror before them. He twisted the canister lid and released the contents, letting it drop to the floor to release what was inside before focusing on the next.

The hospital had grown out of control and chaotic so quickly it wasn’t until Annika had managed to push through the swarm of hysterical people who had flooded their observation room that she could make some sort of discovery as to what on earth was going on. At first as she pushed between a young man with a bandaged leg and a nursing student who was screaming blue murder Annika felt the rush of air as the chaos in the hallway seemed to be triple the amount of the observation room though the source of what had erupted was unknown however as her eyes laid squarely upon the pale gown clad man in the corridor. On any other occasion he would be unnoticed however Annika could clearly see that he was not at all right, or human.

Apart from the obvious screams from those who had first encountered the man, it was the dim glow of markings on his skin that gave away any secret he might hold. Annika stayed just outside of the door of the observation room with her back to the wall, watching intently as the man marked out another individual who was transporting a biohazard cart. Suddenly being at the hospital to chase up a couple of leads had been replaced by the distraction in front of her and as the two individuals clashed at the end of the hall and a cluster of security guards rushed past her. Her eyes widened as she realised the seriousness of the situation though unknown to Annika things were about to get a whole lot worse.
She waited for the security guards to pursue the men before she followed, being smart enough to keep away enough to not become a focal point of distraction while she pulled her cell from her pocket. All but the two immortals were left infront of the elevator doors as they slid shut, sealing the two from the remainder of those pursuing them. It halted things for a few seconds before the guards realised the direction the lift was moving in, rushing through the door of the stairwell. Considering her options Annika followed them as she dialled in the Oxen Corp number, following the prompts until she was able to connect through to Bade’s office, the secretary answering.

“I need to speak to Bade asap” Annika blurted out between breathes as she descended the stairs, hurrying to catch up to the guards.

The strike hit it's mark as Vaughan crumpled to the floor the stench of burning flesh filling his nostrils in an all to familiar way.
His head swam as he lowered a trembling hand down the energy taken to create such a strike had been taxing upon his already depleted system threatening to push him back over the edge of consciousness he had been balancing upon since waking in the morgue.

Sounds echoed through his mind as it swam and he stepped forward moving towards his brother who now was fighting to get back up onto his feet.
He had hoped to keep his sibling down longer then he had but as he moved his senses came back into focus he realised they were on a much tighter time limit. The soldiers were behind them now entering the same room.

Vaughan was up and moving and Romal ran to follow stumbling to a halt as a loud crack filled the air a silver tipped bullet punching through his lower back in startlingly painful jolt.
Gasping he fought the urge to fall, his knees wobbling as he stepped forward again, pins and needles spreading from the site of the bullet found to each of his limbs.

Vaughan had made it into a different part of the building "Run you idiots!" he growled turning his head to look back at the humans who all had guns aimed upon him, ready to kill at any moment all oblivious that despite his usual kill them all stance he was in fact trying to save them.
"Get out of here"

In a surge of movement he called on his supernatural speed as he rushed from the room and into the adjoining one Vaughan had accessed.
To late he watched his brother twist the top off of some unknown canister. It did not affect him yet he could smell the death upon the air.
"What have you done!? You fucking selfish prick"

They all had blood on their hands, none of them were innocent by a long shot, they had been created to unify in the destruction of the earth yet Vaughan's actions were all his own. He was doing this simply because he wanted to.

The running footsteps of approaching soldiers grew closer still as he stared at his brother before once again trying to rush him, to knock the remaining canisters from his hands and stop him from releasing any more chemical weapons into the hospital.

He aimed low meaning to tackle Vaughan and that was when the shots rang out once more. This time instead of a single crack of the bullet parting air there were several, his body jolting a number of times, jerking from side to side as each bullet tore through his back some embedding within flesh others shooting straight through on a trajectory towards Vaughan.

Instead of tackling Vaughan as he had meant to do he practically stumbled into his brother, blood and muscle matter quickly staining his front which impacted upon Vaughan's, his hands curling into his brother as he pressed his body against him, pinning the next container between them so his brother could not open it. He hoped that some of the bullets hitting him would at least puncture through into Vaughan and stop him from causing further death.
If this was his death he intended on taking his brother with him.

His wishes were short lived as bullet upon bullet took him to his knees, his hands still clinging to Vaughan's shirt as he fell. blood exploding from his lips in gurgling cough as he tried with all of his failing strength to keep Vaughan from fleeing, he needed to end it here and now he knew he had no other choice.

His blackened eyes could see Romal struggling in his pursuit, the electrical current he had sent out obviously causing drain on his energy reserve. It was good for Vaughan considering Romal was now placed between Vaughan and the cluster of soldiers and security personnel. As Romal proceeded he turned and yelled for them to run in a futile attempt, his cry for them to run falling upon deaf ears whilst Vaughan watched with sickened humour. Mortals were so easily frightened and Vaughan found it almost laughable that they could do so much damage to the immortal society. But then again he had figured with idiots like Romal around it wasn’t entirely unbelievable.

The canister he had opened bounced and rolled across the floor as a fine plume of dust bean to fill the air whilst the remnants of a powder dusted out across the floor at his feet. The substance was not known to Vaughan however he had concluded that it had to be something harmful to humans to have been locked in such a place. He had two further containers clasped in his hands, the lids still on however he aimed to continue removing the lids on each until his timeframe for escape had seconds left.

As Vaughan began to pry the second canister lid loose he spotted Romal rushing through the door, widening his stance to brace any oncoming impact as he raced to open the lid. Romal had yelled as he confronted Vaughan but it did nothing to cease his plans. It was only as Romal rushed towards him that Vaughan’s second release was foiled and Romal collided with him as a number of gun shots rang out. He could see the pain in Romal’s eyes as each bullet hit his body and felt the weight as several bullets missed Romal and tore into Vaughan’s arms and shoulder. There was a burning pain as blood splattered out from the wounds upon impact and a further stabbing jolt as a bullet impacted his hip after having shot through his brother. His face had contorted from the sickening smirk to a pained glare while Romal had sunk against him and effectively pushed the canister from Vaughan’s grasp. He could see the soldiers reaching the room as Romal began to slip further towards the ground and the canisters rolled between their bodies, dropping from Vaughan’s grasp as he reached out and took a firm hold of Romal’s arms. Another bullet struck Vaughan, lodging into his lower abdomen which caused a troubling amount of pain as he stared down to his younger brother. In any other setting it would have horrified him to see his little brother suffering in such a way but at this moment he was simply the lamb.

As the men pursuing them began to enter the room, the first lines had suddenly paused, finding their airways filling with something that had caused their throats to swell, the air thick and hard to breathe in. Guns dropped from their hands as their faces turned red, a panic rippling through the men as those behind them slowed to work out why they had suddenly stopped. Vaughan could feel the bullet wounds burning and the smell of his own blood as he gave Romal once last hard shove to his chest. He used the shove to propel himself backwards into the metal table which bordered the wall, only opening the veil in time to consume him. He was significantly injured however despite the hiccups he had achieved his aim and in the process had left his little brother to be killed by Ox Corp.

---Exit Vaughan----

The phone lines in the Oxen Corporation's Headquarters were ringing off the hook. Bade was getting numerous reports about some kind of creature or creatures attacking the hospital. The logical concussion to begin with was of course vampires. But as more and more reports came in, it was seeming less and less like vampires and like something else entirely. " Mr. Price, there's a woman on line 3. It seems quite urgent. " the familiar voice rang through his earpiece as he delegated duties on the other lines. " A woman? " he muttered to himself as he tried to think of who it could be. The Oxen Corporation was a misogynistic beast, it was not made to be so but as was the nature of this business. Capable and qualified women were few and far between so to hear of a woman looking for him was rather bizerre.

Switching lines he could think of only one woman who might call him at the office and quite frankly her timing was terrible. " Nat? " he asked switching to the line but he was pleasantly surprised to her Annika's voice. " Oh Annika, sorry. " he said a brief smile meeting his face despite all the chaos. Unfortunately this wasn't a social call. He listened carefully to what she was saying as he was finally getting to grips to what was actually going on down there. It was worse then he could ever have imagined. This wasn't a simple case of robbery as he was first presuming. This was far more serious and posed the first real in quite sometime. " Ok Annika, I'm sending people now but you need to get out of there. " he said knowing she would probably ignore him. She was not under his jurisdiction but his conscience required him too.

" I'll order an evacuation of the hospital but please get yourself to safety. " he asked before hanging up. He didn't have time to dwell on the phone with her. Switching lines, his voice would now echo across the headquarters and into the ear pieces of every solider who had one. " All members be warned this is Code Green. Be advised that Hazard material is on site. Evacuation team on route. Protective gear to be warn before entering the site. " Bade's message was clear and concise everything it had to be in this situation. Time was of the essence and he was done sitting around behind a desk. " Veronica, I'm taking the mobile command center, forward the calls to the vehicle. " he ordered to her surprise. " But Mr. Price...." she said in vain as she watched Bade disappear.

It took him no time at all to get to the scene with the sirens and the streets around the hospital being shut down as the evacuation was already under progress. Bade was eager to get to the site to ensure protocols were being followed. If this virus was released not only would it mean casualties but his neck would be on the chopping block. This happened under his watch and he was going to do his best to keep both his men and the public safe. He only hoped Annika had gotten out as he asked. Secure in the van, Bade watched the going on's through various monitors, mostly body cams worn by the men that were now entering the building. If Annika or anybody else was still in there, they were about to be surrounded.

With each bullet that managed to pierce through his brother Romal felt a little slither of hope that Vaughan could fall there with him and that it would soon all be over. As awful as it was he would rather both himself and Vaughan die in such a brutal way now then have Asha or another one of his brothers mutilated by Vaughan once again, if it took them both dying to achieve that then so be it.

The canister he fought to stop Vaughan opening fell between them to the floor and rolled, he managed a glance down in time to see that it had not opened. Not that it did any good to the soldiers already dying behind them due to the first chemicals being released.

As he fell against Vaughan his knees never met the floor his brother grabbing hold of him not allowing him to fall. In the past they would have done the same thing for each other in an attempt to help yet as his gaze met Vaughan's he saw nothing of the brother that he loved. He only saw a monster, so much so that a deep twinge of his own demon surged weakly through his core at the sight of it. The recognition of the two brief as Vaughan launched Romal backwards using him as a shield and a force to push away from as he vanished through a void leaving Romal to slam the floor and slide along his back until connecting with the writing armed bodies of OX soldiers upon the floor sucking in their last breaths.

-
Lying there his blank stare fixated upon the cracked ceiling he wheezed the awful sound of lungs fighting a losing battle. To die there would have been so easy, all he had to do was let go and then once again it would be over. Even going back to Nero seemed a more simple prospect then moving forward beyond this point.
But he was a Dimitru, that was not the way things were done. While there was even a ounce of strength left in them they would fight. Once again he found himself giving it everything he had just to make it through. He couldn't leave Asha alone, the thought of his sister facing Vaughan alone had got him through before it would again.

Each movement seemed as gruelling as climbing a mountain but once he started he refused to stop. Before long he stumbled is way over corpses towards soldiers scurrying to escape the expanding plume of unknown toxin.
Making his way into the hall he turned and roughly slammed the door hoping to slow the spread, for a moment he considered bringing the walls down but had enough wits left about him to realize the structure of the building would suffer major damage and probably collapse bringing with it all remaining inside the hospital.

Turning to the stairs he looked up at them to see they were clear of soldiers. He had been looking at the door for longer then he had thought but soon once again he was on the move, leaving a slick trail of blood in his wake, the silver bullets the soldiers had pumped him full of unrelenting in their mission.

The ground floor was eerily quiet by the time he got there, deserted the evacuation having taken place during his slow ascent up the stairs.
Dizzy and increasingly disorientated he wondered the halls in search of an exit his sense of direction having failed him.

Tripping on something he hit the floor with a groan glancing at the offending obstacle that had unbalanced him he slowly reached out for it. A cell phone. Pulling it up close to his face he struggled to focus upon it his blurred eyes making out the bars of signal. Lazily he managed to enter the first number that came to mind which just so happened to be Nathaniel's. Fat lot of good that would do him, dude was always on some beach miles away.
Ringing through to the answer phone he sighed the tone sounding far away as it prompted him to speak.
“Hey.. I'm at the hospital” it would have to be enough, the phone dropping from his hand his ability to grip it failing him as a silver bullet within his shoulder burned through nerve and muscle tissue.
He just had to hope Nate would hear him in time.

When the office assistant had finally managed to get her shit together and patch Annika through to Bade she made no correction as he mentioned Nat on the phone. Instead she breathlessly began to blurt out an account of what she had just witnessed as she ran down each stair case behind the soldiers and security staff ahead of them as he recognised her from her voice. She held the mobile to her ear as she tried not to stumble or bump the soldiers, eventually having to drift back a few steps as some began to notice her.

“Hey! Don’t stop me, I’m on the phone to your fucking boss!” she managed to shout as one of the soldiers stopped her on the platform between stairs, her feet scuffling the ground as she kept herself from crashing into him. It was times like this that she hated know it all soldiers in uniform.
“Bade you need to get reinforcements here, there is something going down at the hospital and it’s not friendly.” She shouted at him on the phone in a hurried voice. Her usual relaxed tone was now sharp and short, as though she was used to screaming orders at people all day. As they closed in on the bottom of the stair well she found the figures ahead of her beginning to cram up and slow. The shouts of the soldiers were suddenly undertones to shouting and wild screams as a burst of light illuminated the stairwell below, producing a gust of heat she could only assume was from some sort of explosion.

“Jesus Christ I don’t know what that was...” Annika mumbled on the phone as she held it to her ear, appointing herself as a communicator to Bade since the remainder of people in front of her were more concerned by the imminent threat the two immortals had posed. As she pushed her way down with the soldiers at the rear of the troops, some leapt up the stairwell in panic as she scowled. She had no knowledge to understand why until she managed to push her way to the bottom doorway, stuck just behind two or more clusters of soldiers as she shoved and jumped up and down to get some sort of view through the door. The shouts and screams were so loud in the air she couldn’t hear a word of what Bade was saying, or had said anything at all. As a gap opened her eyes widened in shock as she spotted a man in a security uniform howling as he grabbed at his throat, his eyes bulging as he stumbled towards them. Behind him there were soldiers on the floor and in the distance she could make out the outline of one of the men she had seen earlier. The hall was a chaotic mess and it was seconds later as the wailing man was promptly shot by soldier that something was dreadfully wrong.
“Get out! Get out!” the men at the front waved and shoved to the soldiers in the stairwell, Annika fighting to keep upright as she felt herself shoved between the personnel.

“There’s gas!” someone shouted before another man fired a shot and took out another gasping security guard as he tried to reach safety in vain.

“Fuck Bade we need help!” Annika shouted into the phone as she tried to get back to the stair case, the soldiers in front of her firing out at the immortals and men who had inhaled what had been released into the air.

“It’s biohazard, gas or something” She added as she elbowed her way passed two soldiers and managed to get a foot on the bottom stair. From there it was much easier to weave pass people and it was exactly what Annika had done. She had no idea of how to fight against things like air contaminants and chemical warfare, hell she had enough trouble dealing with claws and sharp teeth. She mustered her energy and placed her weight distribution forward as she used the balls of her feet to spring up each step, trying to regulate her breathing to stay at a consistent pace. She was fit and trained for combat but even she hated running stairs. The line on the mobile disconnected and she could see the light emitted from the phone screen out the corner of her eye, realising the call had been cut. She could only hope that Bade had heard her amidst the chaos.

Once she had made it to the lobby Annika ran for the front entrance doors, a few people still in the lobby who had been far too slow to evacuate at the sound of the sirens. She glanced at them as she ran past, her breath catching as she reached the doors and slowed in anticipation of them opening. She lifted her hands as her palms slapped up against the glass as the doors didn’t budge, people on the exterior of the building staring back with fear in their eyes.

‘Shit!” Annika screamed as she pulled her hands into fists and bashed them against the glass doors.
“Hey! Open these!” she screamed to no avail. She stumbled back a few steps as the people outside continued to move away from the entrance and she turned in panic as she thought about the release of gas into the air. With eyes darting about and her thoughts scrambling for some sort of idea of how to get out, Annika took off in the opposite direction of the stair well she had come out from. From all accounts the hospital was large enough that she could get to the other end and find another set of stairs that wouldn’t lead to the biohazard labs. By the time she had made it to the south end of the building it was apparent that all of the entry and exits out of the building had been shutdown and there was no way in hell she could get out of there. Instead she found the first fire escape stairwell and headed up for the roof. She tried to tap out a message as she ran up the stairs until the door came into view. Relief hit her until her hands pressed down on the lever and she crashed into the door. Pain rattled through her shoulder from the impact and she let out a furious shout in frustration. Rattling the handle she found the door wouldn’t budge.

Caine wasn’t great on booking places that were comfortable, at least not the kind of comfort level Nate was interested in. He was so used to fluffed pillows and luxury beds but the mattress he laid on in their hire apartment room was stiff and old, surely to possess a thousand obscure stains should the sheets be pulled. Nate had propped himself up on the pillows he could find, folding the top one over and wedging it under his neck as he lay back, beer in hand watching an ordered movie. Arcane was a long long way from Tahiti and the other islands he had been travelling across and nowhere near as beautiful not to mention the women.

As his phone buzzed for the thirteenth time Nathaniel let out a gravelly whine, sick of Caine sending messages and calling while he was out. He understood his family needed him but Nate preferred to be doing many other entertaining things. He had opted to stay home while Caine and Asha caught up, he didn’t want to hear them drone on all day. Reluctantly he finally picked up his phone, sliding his thumb across the screen. His brow raised as a side glance turned into concern, the number at the top identified as Romal rather than Caine.

Sitting up with surprise he lifted the phone to his ear, the reception terrible which he put down to being stuck in a shitty motel apartment block.
“Rom?” he answered with slight concern, after all no one had heard from Romal since he had called Caine in Lacrimosa. At first he had received no response, though after a few seconds he could make out Romal’s voice, lighter than usual and much more strained, obviously in trouble. He heard where he was before the sound became a loud clutter, the line cutting out before Nathaniel had a chance to say something in reply.

“Hospital?” Nate murmured to himself. He frowned as he slid off the bed, picking up the remote and switching off the tv. Surely there were was only one or two places he could be. With that idea in motion Nate raced across the room, picking his wallet and keys up off the kitchen bench and heading for the door. He had to find Romal.

The scene outside the hospital appeared to be chaotic to the untrained eye but to those with the right training they would see a well executed machine acting to protect the public to the fullest extent. Unfortunately with every passing moment it was becoming more and more complicated. Bade had arrived knowing that some kind of biohazard was involved thanks to Annika. But finding out it was some kind of air borne virus put a halt to his evacuation plans. They couldn't risk spreading whatever was causing the deaths to get out into the general public. A sound system was setup to relay important information to those trapped inside. It advised them to remain indoors and not to block or hinder the doors or personal. Of course there was also a message of encouragement assuring those inside that they were doing everything possible to resolve the situation. Of course Bade was dealing with the hard truth. That many of those innocent people inside may come out in body bags if they couldn't get a handle on the situation quickly.

He tried calling Annika again but it went straight to voicemail. Damn hospitals. He suspected there was some kind of network blocking in place meaning he couldn't get in contact with Annika and had no idea whether she was safe or not. He could only hope that she knew how to take care of herself and could keep herself alive till he got to her. Stepping out of the van, a swarm of men approached. Dressed head to toe in white plastic protective gear. The most important piece of information was whether or not the pathogen was strictly airborne. If it was only transferred in the air, they could evacuate the hospital without worry that the people inside would be carriers. But until that had been established they were trapped inside and Bade was stuck outside, holding their lives in his hands and possibly their deaths on his shoulders.

As the biohazard team entered the building another team began setting up the appropriate blockades while they awaited the rest of the equipment to arrive. The hope was that if it was purely airborne they could purify the air and eradicate the threat. But Bade was no scientist or doctor. All he knew was that the research facility beneath the hospital dealt with all manner of dangerous infections and Bade was out of his comfort zone with all of this. His speciality was immortals not bioterrorism and now someone he cared about was once again in danger and once again, he was helpless to do anything about it. It was bringing back everything he had felt years previous when Natalia had almost died. It brought his mind to a dark place but the voices in his ear brought him back to the present.

" Control, this is Oscar Charlie 2, we have made our way toward the basement and located the facility as well as one Immortal who is in custody. Out. " Bade's blood almost boiled upon hearing that message. Of course it was an Immortal. It made sense now. They were attacking the hospital to cause havoc and chaos in the city, distracting the organisation and giving them an opportunity to strike. He was almost impressed with the plan but also relieved that the plan had failed and the perpetrator was in custody. " Rodger Oscar Charlie 2, proceed with testing. Over. " he replied knowing he would have to wait to claim his prize until the testing was complete. The wait would be agonizing.

----- A SHORT TIME LATER -----

" Control this is Oscar Charlie 2, preliminary results show the patagon is strictly airbourne. I repeat, pathogen is strictly airborne. Evacuation can proceed. Over. " Bade sighed with relief. " Received, Evacuation will begin shortly. Out. " Without missing a beat Bade began switching switched in the van, the message over the loudspeaker changed. The voice was now instructing those inside to proceed to the front exit for Evacuation. A large poly tunnel surrounded it and ended in a large truck that would transport those inside to Ox Corp Quarantine. They would still have to take every precaution for at least twenty four hours to ensure that no one suffered any effects and allow Ox Corp time to fully test the pathogen and find out what they were dealing with.

Teams of soldiers, wearing facial masks with it's own oxygen supply to protect them when inside, stormed the building. Their aim was to find any survivors and get them out of the building. They also had to take a toll of those who had not survived and assist the OC1 with removal of the Immortal still inside. He would be removed last as his transport would be separate to that of the survivors. Bade left the comfort of the van to move alongside the poly tunnel. Not only did he want to do a headcount as the survivors passed him but he also had to know whether Annika had made it out alive and who this Immortal was that was responsible for this act of bioterrorism.

Re: Incapacitating the vulnerable

He knew he should be moving yet the task seemed very far out of reach as he could feel each individual bullet burning their way further into him their metal corroding through anything they came into contact with.
His left arm had become useless to him, he had tried to reach out again for the phone but it simply refused to move, it didn't matter anyway before long he heard nothing but dial tone Nathaniel having hung up, hopefully having understood what Romal was trying to say.

In times like these he wish he in part at least had remained part vampire, then having a heart beat would not have been such an issue.
Upon his return from Nero he had been resurrected in the form of a demon and blood had once again flowed through his veins. It had made him stronger and at times he had proven himself to be a force to be reckoned with, yet in this case it was only hindering him.
Each beat of the now damaged organ pushed more blood out of him and pulled death ever closer.

Bringing his left leg up he kept his foot against the floor his knee bend, twisting it he rolled onto his side his right arm stretching as he groaned to himself his fingers hooking around a fallen filing cabinet. Forcing his weight he stumbled up onto his feet just as the sound of footsteps filled the hallway, soldiers wearing gear he hadn't seen before filing in.
“ah shit..” that made things a lot more complicated, he had expected to have more time at least.

No way he could run, he started to limp off towards a set of stairs, a mains outlet catching his attention only for his mind to catch up and remember he had probably not only blown the power to the building but cooked most sockets when he had attacked Vaughan. The back up power would be saved for much more important areas in the hospital.
He was pinned down, with no where to go and he had no choice. He didn't have enough of his own energy left to level an attack upon them without killing himself and as far as dying rather then being captured went, well that was a great thought but he couldn't do that to his siblings not when he had one other option left.

Turning slowly he faced the soldiers who aimed their weapons once more at him. Looking them over as he stood half dead before them they still looked upon him as a monster. He had tried to help them but they would never believe that and he wouldn't waste his breath trying to convince them.
Raising his right arm he put his hand up, unable to do so with the other. “You, got me..”

They all came to a halt their guns aimed to the head, the laser sights stinging by-coloured eyes as he turned his head away.
Two had broken away from the group, one going to his side then behind him the other slightly off to his front.
A swift butt of the gun to his gut had heaving blood upon the floor, another blow from behind to his knees had dropped him.
Before he knew it pure silver cuffs were shackled, the pain of manipulating his arms in such a way causing him to yell out in pain between gasps.

Next the others were beside him, one or two taking pictures he only assumed would be for evidence or identification. He complied as best he could even when they strapped him into some sort of body suit rendering him completely incapacitated.
Pulled onto his feet and dragged he was led off down a tunnel they had put in place and towards a waiting set of vans.
By this stage he didn't care nor was he aware of it all the grasp of consciousness barely holding on.

He rose his head a fraction to look upon the unkind eyes of a man he did not know, a man who seemed to be in charge of the whole thing. Their exchanged looks brief before once again he was forced to move. Literally being hurled into the back of a van and once more secured.

Re: Incapacitating the vulnerable

The eerie silence of the hospital stair well had not helped Annika to feel better about her situation and after a long five minute of kicking and hitting the door to the roof her hopes were beginning to diminish. As she turned her back against the door and slid down onto her backside she grasped at escaping ideas that could get her out of the hospital and to safety. It was not a wise move to go back down to the ground level of the hospital, shit she couldn’t even tell if she was clear from the toxins that had been released into the air in her current position but it was the best she had on offer. It was then that her forehead began to slowly but surely moisten with sweat, her chest barely able to contain her racing heart and rapid breathing. Mismatched eyes seemed to glisten as she tried to hold in her panic though the more time past the more Annika thought over her situation and an untimely downfall she was not at all prepared for.

“What if i’ve already inhaled it? What will happen....am i breathing okay? My chest is tight but i.....i don’t know if thats just from running...oh god i don’t want to go like that.” Annika’s brain questioned as though there could be some sort of solution found by freaking out more. She glanced down as she lifted her arms, turning them around and back again to see the colour of her skin. Surely if she was about to die she would look pale or blotchy. Had the soldier she watched suffocate to death receive any other indication of imminent death? She could remember the look in his eyes as his hands had grasped at his throat and she found herself panicking more.

She wished she had some kind of weapon on her, the truth being that having come to the hospital Annika had not armed herself at all. Carrying weapons in a place like a local hospital would have gotten her kicked out fast. A gun would be mercy; she could go without the same kind of pain she had seen the first wave of victims go. As these thoughts plagued her, Annika felt the closeness of the stairwell walls and panic finally got the best of her. Pulling her arms around her form Annika squeezed her eyes shut and tried desperately of other things, her father teaching her to ride a pony, her brothers play fighting, the rolling, spacious fields of her childhood home. Tears had slid down her cheeks but she wiped them away angrily, she didn’t want to cry.
Every moment she waited for her throat to suddenly close, every inhale becoming all the more important than ever before. She had briefly gone through her pockets to try and find something, anything to perhaps pick the lock until she realised there was no lock to pick. It seemed an eternity until suddenly she jumped in freight as a voice spoke. It was a recording, god knows she had never ever heard such anyone speak in such a monotonous tone but regardless of what it was, it had captured her full attention. Relief flooded her as the message began to repeat, knowing that her call to Bade had not been in vain. Given that Annika was out of options she could only sit and wait, hoping this would mean she could finally get out of this increasingly crappy small stairwell.
----- A SHORT TIME LATER -----

As the message droned on Annika had begun to think that the whole ‘we are doing our best’ speech was simply a false hope. She had lost count of how much time had passed and it wasn’t until the words suddenly changed that she noticed how oddly calmed she had been by the droning sound. She lifted her head up from her arms, listening intently as the new message gave sound instruction to evacuate. At that moment she had lost all composure, breathing out a long rushed sigh of relief as she braced her arms on the ground and pushed herself up to stand. She could finally get the hell out of there. Cautious but desperate to leave Annika ignored the usual warnings in her mind, the what if scenario questions she often went through before showing her presence somewhere in the face of danger. Claustrophobic to a fault, Annika proceeded to rush the stairwell, skipping a step in between to get down them quicker until she finally reached the ground level and pushed through the door, entering the hallway and into the sights of a dozen white suited soldiers and armed to the teeth. The sight threw her as she retreated to the doorway of the stairwell. Was she about to get shot? Jesus how stupid could she have been?

Hesitating Annika glanced around the corner to see the soldiers on approach, though none raised their weapons as the man in the front motioned for her to come towards him. Her mind was in a quandary but then again as she had previously resigned herself to the thought, being shot was a better and faster way to go than suffocating. Reluctantly she went against her instincts, stepping out and walking to the soldier in the front of the group who seemed more about helping than killing her, walking beside her as he led Annika to the front entrance of the hospital where the quarantine trucks were positioned and awaiting patients. The soldier beside her had spoken but the gas mask had hindered the sound from catching Annika’s ears. Instead she was focused on what was going on, a few people being aided out with her as she neared the entrance. There was no sign of the immortals but she had surmised that they were probably killed by now and Ox Corp wasn’t likely to take an immortal amongst a bunch of mortals. Finally she could see the poly tunnel that had been attached to the hospital entrance, the end winding to awaiting transport whilst oxen corp staff clad in white hazmat suits welcomed them and guided the way. She couldn’t believe the luck in stepping over the threshold of the hospital doors, something she would have openy celebrated if she hadn’t spotted Bade’s face just on the outside of the tunnel. She stopped walking, stepping to the wall of the tunnel as she called out.

“BADE!” she screamed in the hopes he could hear her, a face she knew and at that moment appreciated his presence even more so. Just as she had pressed her hands to the tunnel wall, a soldier wrapped and hand around her arm, ushering her along towards the truck in such a way that was not overuse of force but enough to suggest that she keep on moving.
“Man....let me go, alright....alright!” Annika muttered as she reached the truck, casting a gaze over the looks on the passenger’s faces. Some relieved, others crying and huddled. She stepped into the transport vehicle, taking a seat and closing her eyes, calmed by the fact that help had arrived.

Nathaniel loved nothing more than wearing a loud shirt, something that always seemed to draw attention and give off a party vibe. But in a place like arcane, Nate had concluded that wearing such a thing would probably lead to trouble, hence stealing one of Caine’s horrible button up shirts was necessary though not at all the most desirable consequence for Nathaniel. Unlike some of his siblings Nate’s eyes were seemingly normal, perhaps more reddish brown but able to pass for mortal enough. His runes seemed to be controlled well also and with the shirt covering them there was no worry for being detected in the city. He had pulled up the map application on his phone and searched for the hospital, one place at least that he wasn’t familiar with despite all of his visitations to Death manor. It wouldn’t be a quick race to the location unfortunately and he wondered now why Caine or Asha had not bothered to get a hire car.

After two bus rides across town and a ten minute walk through a local park just for the sake of cover Nathaniel had reached the boundary of the hospital. He could see from a distance the swarm of oxen corporation men and women, bright white suits and large white tunnels which extended from the building. This was not at all what he had expected to encounter and for a moment he stood and watched, hoping for some sort of easy entry. Nothing easy came to the forefront of his mind and after a while he gave into the idea of being able to simply walk into the hospital. Observation was necessary to find his brother, at least if he knew Romal’s location then he could organise how the hell he could get his brother back safe.

He walked briskly through the car park where civilians were still swarming, presumably waiting news of what had occurred in the building however the closer Nathaniel moved to the building, the more his hearing picked up on conversations between individuals about what had happened. There were different theories but one thing was drastically clear, the word bioterrorism being passed about and the presence of immortals. He couldn’t be sure on the truth of what was going on but for now he could assume an identity in the mass of people who were outside without drawing attention. With the transport vehicles in sight he found the first person he could see who looked remotely like they worked for Oxen Corp, fronting them with a panicked look.

“Excuse me, my sister...i’m trying to find my sister and i can’t see her, she was in the hospital this morning because she spilt hot water on herself, please have you seen her? She is about this high,” he mocked the height using Asha for a guide. ‘she is thin, red hair....”he asked the person as they shook their head.
“Oh god...maybe she is still in there, please you have to help her...your truck, do you think she is on one? Where will she go? Is she alive?” Nathaniel ranted to the oxen corp employee who tried to settle him as he put on his act. He couldn’t fake a cry so over the top speaking would have to do. It had worked and eventually he was informed his supposed sister would be taken to ox corp headquarters for observation and a number was given to him on a business card for him to call so that he could locate her.

He thanked the person, moving back into the crowd and slipping the card into his pocket. He couldn’t display his confidence and celebration of getting the information, instead sticking his head down and merging into the crowd before making his way behind a maintenance shed and into the bushes where he could wait and watch for any sign of Romal.

It took some time before the first transport truck moved off, a few more proceeding as Nathaniel bunkered down into the dirt under the bushes which concealed his presence. It wasn’t until a different looking truck arrived that he spotted a darker colour moving through the tunnel. He had seen smaller clusters of people prior to now, the odd couple but sure enough this larger blotch of colour showed him that more than just a couple of people were moving to the truck. Some armed soldiers were stationed to drive the vehicle, an obvious sign that this was probably Romal if he had been captured. Taking the sign on a hunch, Nathaniel got up from the ground, dusted himself off and slipped out into the car park, his intentions to boost a car to follow the transport vehicle.

B A D E . P R I C E
Human || Oxen Corporation Commander


For once, everything was going to plan. The immortal had been detained without loss of life to his men and the evacuation was underway with all of the hospitals occupants complying with their orders. It was a small relief but Bade wasn't about to let his guard down yet. The job was not done and he still had to face the press in a conference. At least it was going to make Ox Corp loook good for once. They had apprehended the culprit with minimum loss of life. He hated that phrase, no loss of life was acceptable to him but he had to read from his script to keep the shareholders happy. It was not an aspect of the job he enjoyed but as the face for the company he had no choice. It was his duty and he had never said no when faced with his duty.

He watched those evacuating keeping a look out for Annika. He had no idea whether she had been infected or not. All he knew was that Annika was close enough to know what was going on which meant there was a chance she might have gotten infected before the quarantine was set up. Bade was still at a loss as to what this was exactly and had no idea whether it would just make her sick or whether she was dead already. He hoped for the latter. He had developed quite an attachment to Annika and wouldn't be able to live with himself if something happened to her because he couldn't act quick enough. His hands had been tied with proper procedures and protocols that he often felt helpless at times despite having an army at his disposal. He had to dot his i's and cross his t's and there was no room for error. He had to lead by example and no matter hoe much he wanted to throw the rulebook out the window, he couldn't. If he didn't follow the rules then there would be anarchy and with their goal of eradicating all immortals so close, he couldn't afford to slip up now.

Stepping toward the poly tunnel he looked at the frightened faces as they passed him. Some smiled grateful, others in shock or the rare few who were angry at the inconvenience. He never understood those who were angry, how they couldn't understand that their actions were in their best interests. Their anger would get them nowhere except to piss off those in charge. Still, their anger meant little in the big picture and right now his focus was on finding Annika. However, his men would find him first as he was directed toward the immortal who had caused all this. Moving away from the tunnel but trying to keep it in the corner of his eye, he walked toward the men and their prize. He stood about an arms length away as the creature was behind a truck, out of public view. Bade stared at the creature as for a moment he tried to remember where he knew him from adn then he recalled a night in Arcane when a literal crater had been left in the city. They had caught him once and they were not going to lose him again.

" Did you get pictures of him before he was in the restraints? " he asked the soldier who nodded. " Good I want his face all over the six o'clock news. " his muttered casting one last hate filled glance before dismissing him. " Get him out of my sight and do not lose him again or it will be more then your jobs on the line. " he warned not wanting another screw up like that to happen under his watch. As he watched the immortal be put into the back of a secure truck, he heard his name being called out from behind him. Turning toward the sound, he saw Annika banging on the tunnel  trying to get his attention. He smiled, relieved knowing that she was ok. All they had to do now was get through the quarantine period. He pointed toward the truck wanting her to follow the soldiers orders. They couldn't talk here and he didn't want to delay the evacuation of the rest of the survivors. He watched her enter the truck and then he turned to watch some of the convoy leave with the Immortal and the first of the evacuated. All that was left to do now was face the press and then head back to Ox Corp to deal with the paperwork this mess would have created.
