Rai grabbed Mary out and discovered it was his illusion. He cussed and punched the car. It flew to the wall. Rai sighed, "damn.it."
((I don't think your last post showed Izuo))
((I'll post it again...))
Rai dragged Mary out and discovered it was his illusion. The illusion vanished and Rai scratched his head. "Interesting, must've been concetrating too hard." He muttered. Then he realized Mary escaped. He punched the car and it flew to the wall.
"She's a crafty little sh.it, huh?" Cody said, reloading his crossbow. The first bolt had missed by a long shot, he blamed it on the fact that vampires just had faster reflexes then him, that was his story and he was sticking to it. "I'll get her though, I always do." He had trailed her for a few days and knew her usual haunts and acquaintances. Mary didn't know how entirely screwed she was. That was an advantage to being human, they all underestimate humans.
(*awkwardly waiting for a way to make a legit post*)
Rai laughed, "that's true," he turned towards Cody. "Although, don't kill her. I need her." Rai tossed a vial towards Cody, "it's another chemical vial that I designed, don't worry it doesn't have vampire blood in there, but if it did it'd be mine. This is a new strain that should make you stronger, make your reflexes faster, although it only lasts about an hour."
"Uh, thanks." Cody said cautiously. He wasn't stupid, he knew that no favor came without a price, especially when it came to vampires. They had a warped sense of loyalty and honor, he didn't want to sign himself up for something he didn't understand. And he couldn't think of what Rai would want with a psychotic monster, unless he was protecting her. "What's the price?" He asked with a smirk.
Rai smirked, then he laughed. "There is no price. Believe me Cody. I've lived as long as Dracula has and I've learned plenty. Much has changed about me."
(I might have to drop out... I really doubt I can contribute much to this right now...)
((Aww....... That's fine. I guess... ... :( ))
(I mean, if a chance comes up in the next couple hours or so, I'll try jumping back in, but I really feel like I'd just be talking to myself.)
Mary's safehouse was located in an old abandoned warehouse. She believes it was once used for storing lumber.
She picked it 30 years ago when she started planning this job. She liked the fact it was remote, empty, kept at a nice cool temperature.
She enjoys the tiny office near the top where she assumes someone once used for some kind of blue collar management. Mary however transformed it into some kind of Beautiful Mind wall. She had a huge collage of pictures of criminals, any newspaper articles that followed her murders, it was perfect.
But she really picked it because of the suburban area nearby it. See, sometimes even Mary couldn't stand the dark and dirty secrets of the city. Sometimes she just feels slightly il when she thinks of all those dirtbags who touched her. Sometimes, Mary just needs to see something that isn't so messed up and complicated.
So she goes to "suburbia". Sometimes she'll take a nice night stroll and glance into the windows of the houses to see families eat dinner together. Some Saturdays she'll walk around and watch kids play basketball and shoot hoops with their fathers.
Suburbia is the place where Mary will read thoughts and feel pleasure in how innocent and beautiful they are.
But then Mary will go back to the city. She'll hear the disturbing thoughts that enraged her. Transformed her. Inspired her to take action.
So like the end to any other city night, Mary pinned Crack Andy's picture on the board and with the blood she could still feel on her lips wrote "DECEASED".
"Impressive. It kinda reminds me of that crazy chick from the Devil's Rejects." Cody said, stepping out of the shadows with a crossbow aimed at Mary. Vampires may be fast, but Cody had a car. Technology always wins. "Your kind has a law ya know, no killing. And cause they won't do nothing about you, the responsibility is left to poor dumb as.sholes like me." Cody released the bolt, and an arrow covered in dead man's blood launched into Mary's shoulder.
The man's appearance surprised Mary and the arrow had pinned her shoulder to the wall.
She was angered and could kill him in a second...but Mary never took the direct approach when dealing with enemies.
She smirked and chuckled as she pulled the arrow out of her and moved down to face him.
"Laws? Please." She said with a grin. "Those laws were in place for criminals...I am no criminal." With lightning speed she moved back away from him and took cover behind a post.
He must have been tracking me for a while. She thought.
Cody smiled bitterly. "You may not be a criminal, but you're still a serial killer. I've hunted wendigos with a smaller body count then you." He reloaded his crossbow. The dead man's blood wasn't effecting her as it should, and Cody thought it could have something to do with the fact that Mary just fed. He sighed. "Come on out, sweetheart." He called, slinking back into the shadows.
"Sweetheart?" Mary laughed. Then she jumped up and began slowly walking along the platforms that looked down on the warehouse floor. She tracked his every movement and like a cat, circled around him.
"I hope that's not what you call all of your targets."
"Been a while since I've had to kill someone so easy on the eyes, just seemed fitting." Cody said, pausing to listen. There was the faint creaking of metal above his head. "If it weren't for the whole dead and hungry thing, I might have bought you a drink." Cody taunted, looking around the ceiling of the warehouse for movement. He fired another arrow, that made a thud like it had hit flesh and automatically reloaded. He was running out of dead man's blood, soon it would be time to go hand to hand.
((Now I really wish I hadn't talked myself out of joining this RP. Anyway just thought I'd let you know this RP officially had a stalker. Ps Mary and Cody would make the cutest couple. :p))
Mary made a small wince as she pulled this arrow out of her leg. She realized if she was going to stand a chance against this hunter, she'd have to get rid of the crossbow.
Quickly and swiftly she flashed herself to the shadows behind him.
She closed her eyes and attempted to read his thoughts. But his mind was very closed off and she'd need to be much closer to even read a little bit.
Before he could turn around to realize she was there she came up behind him and smashed his crossbow. Then she wrapped one arm around his chest and the other around his neck. Then she whispered into his ear:
"I don't think it would be wise to take me out for a drink."
