The bells struck midnight as a woman frantically pushed through Long halls to a room far back in the house. The outside was quiet and calm as the full moon lit up the dark halls of the mansion. As the woman pushed open two large doors she stopped and waited as the scene of gore in front of her continued. There was a thud as the man in the middle of the room dropped a woman he had been feeding on, as his face reverted to human again he turned around and wiped his mouth of.|
"Why do you disturb my feeding felicia" He spoke with a calm voice but the annoyence of being intruded upon was evident.
" I'm sorry lord Denomollus. There is a caller at the door, she says you will want to speak to her" The maid was slightly scared as she knew it was fatal to interupt his feedings.
Denomollus sighed as he answer "That will no doubt be lady Phoenix. Show her to the library and i will meet her there" He turned back around to finish cleanning and spoke before Felicia left. " Have one of the maids clean this up" He nodded to the women on the floor.
She bowed gracfully as she backed out " Yes lord Denomollous" She turned around and headed back to the front door.
Denomollous slid his long arms into his coat as he walked towards his laibrary. " Why would Phoenix be visiting me after all these years. God that woman is infernal for a human. " He spoke to no one in particular. The doors to the library fly open as he walks in and pours himself a drink. No sooner than he had finished pouring his drink the doors opened again anda tall thin woman in a hooded cloak walked in.
The voice was soft and seductive. " Sir Denomollous, my you seem to be doing well." She walked in and handed her coat to the maid at hand.
He turned and looked at Phoenix with his misty gray eyes. " Its actually lord now.... Drink?" He grabbed another glass as he spoke.
Her long red/ orange hair fell out as she undid the tie on it. " Lord denomollous is it? Yes i think i will have a drink."
Denomollous handed her a drink and offered her a seat as he sat down in a chair. " So to what do i owe the pleasure of your visit? I can assume its not a courtsy call?"
Phoenix sat in a chair adjacent to denomollous and smoothed out her dress. "Actually i was in the area and decided to stop by here. I had not seen you in a while and figured i would stop in. You always were a bit of a night creature. She sipped her drink leaving a slight lip stick kiss on the glass. Her lips were always as red as her hair.
Denomollous arched his eye brow. " At the middle of night. I'm sure..... Care for a walk?" He guestured outside to the courty yard.
Phoenix sat down her glass and stood up "Why not it is such a bueatiful night outside." Denomollous stood and offered his arm to phoenix as sh estood up. " Still the gentalmen i see." The night air was cold on her skin yet she didn't mind. As she looked up into the star filled sky she wondered why was she here.
Denomolous felt nothing of the cold air, his body always being cold. He wondered why phoenix had decided to visit him on such a night and so late but knew she would not tell him even if he asked. "So work at the Order still going well?"
The question took her offguard " Y-yes, the Order is doing well and so am I. Its the same as always paper work adn more paperwork." She looked up at the sky and almost felt liek she was jsut wandering off.
Denomollous lookd down at th ewoman attached to his arm, Her long red and orange hair had always made peopel use her last name of Phoenix. Her green eyes some times shifted to red and even blue when her moods changed. They were bueatiful in certain lights. " Well as long as its not boring. I never understood why you stayed with the Order."
A wind blew through the courtyard as Phoenix squeezed onto denomollous' arm. She laid her head on his arm as she spoke. " And i never understood why you left the Order. You were our top hunter and very good at what you did" She breathed deeply and could smell the blood still on him. For some reason it had alwasy intoxicated her to smell blood on him.
Denomollous sighed " I was tired of being the Orders dog. I wanted more." He looked down at her laying on his arm. He could smell her fragrance as he took in teh sights and sounds of the night.
Phoenix looked up at denomollous and caught him looking back down at her. " What more did you really want Vincent? You had the job and the respect of every one, and had you wanted you would have even had...." She trailed off as she stared deep into his gray eyes.
Denomollous looked into thoses deep red eyes. " You haven't calld me that in years Anastasia. What else could i have had?"
Phoenix paused before she answer and thought better of it. " Nothing, i guess you had your reasons for leaving, but you could have at least told me." She looked down at the ground. She knew what she wanted to tell him, but she knew how he would react.
Denomollous looked at her quizzically but could not see her face. " I just was not happy at the Order i was tired of the stares for being what i am. No one accepted me there." He wondered intensely what it was she had to say but knew it was hopeless to try and ask her.
Phoenix felt a flurry of anger inside her. " No one?! I accepted you, I wanted you to stay. You can't even belive how sad i was when you left. It took me this long just to find you. You've become a bit of a recluse." She unhooked her arm adn stood in front of denomollous.
Denomollous was suprised with what he saw. A single tear started its trek down her cheek. Before it rolled all the way down he used the edge of his coat to wipe it away. " Why do you cry over some one such as me? Our dealings were never plesant and our past was pretty unplesant."
Phoenix looked in disbelife. " You don't get it do you. No of course you don't. You never did understand me or humans in general." She walked up and put her warm hands on the side of denomollous' cold face. " You may not feel warmth but i see more than jsut a vampire, I see a man, a good man when he wants to be. Your eyes show so much solitude and lonelyness, yet you will never admit that you are." Phoenix's hands dropped as she went to walk around denomollous and head back into the mansion.
Unwilling to jsut let that go Denomollous spun and caught Phoenix by her arm, and pulled her close. He stood ther elooking into phoenix's eyes which were now deep blue. He knew what he wanted and he wanted her, yet he couldn't voice it all he could do was stare into her eyes. Thoses eyes that had never once looked upon him with fear, or loathe, or disgust. They had always looked upon him with warmth and friendship and somethin gmore than he never belived was really there. Denomollous cupped Phoenix's chin as her eyes seemed to quiver. Turning her head to the side he caught a glimspe of her neck and felt his fangs start to grow. Pheonix noticed this almost instantly.
Phoenix spoke with trembling breath. "Do it, bite me. I've wanted it since i first met you, Fill your blood lust with me if it will make you finnally see how i truelly feel." She felt denomollous' fangs scrape against her skin and wondered as she felt him pull back.
Denomolous jerked back and covered his mouth with his hand. " No. I will not force my curse upon you. You know not of what you speak." He spun around to look at the moon as his fangs receeded back to there normal place.
Phoenix's voice trembled as she spoke. " Why not i know what i want! Why can't you just accept it Vincent?! Why can't you accept me and appreciate me?! You say i am only human, so turn me and let me......." She couldn't even finish as she turned back towards the mansion. The tears in Phoenix's eyes were not seen by Denomollous as she walked back.
As Denomollous stared up into the mood he wondered and spoke to no one in particular. " Its said that a Phoenixs' Tear can ingite a thousand fires and give re-birth to the very damned souls that walk the earth.
Phoenix headed towards the main front door as she grabbed her coat from the maid felicia. She slipped her hood back on as she stepped into her carraige. She knew she should have ran back and told him the truth, but fear of what would happen afterwards had won out. " Take us into town horseman."
The sound of cracking whips and horse shoes on the gravel let Denomollous know that Phoenix had left. He sighed gentally as he turned around to walk back into his home. Before he had even taken two steps the sound of a crossbow sounded and a wooden dart was shot into Denomollous' chest. The howl of pain could be heard well into town. As his maids rushed out to help him it was already to late, the damage had been done. With his last few remianing moments he regreted letting Phoenix go, But he had deserved his fate. as a curse vampire he could have never given her what she deserved much less what she wanted.
As denomollous laid there bleeding and his maids were gathered around him he bleed the last of his blood. He looked into the night sky one last time adn was surprised for the last time as he felt, even through the pain, a single tear trickle down his cheek. And with that Denomollous died......................
