Their eyes shine in the moon’s light as they fight. Their movements are fluid, smooth, and predatory. Lean, taunt muscles lay beneath different colors of fur and sharp incisors are visible beneath black gums. Blood spatters over their beautiful coats and color the ground red as they snap, tear, and wound each other.

Fur standing on end, you approach the two groups as they pause and separate as they take notice of your presence. Two pairs of eyes stand out to you and unnerve you. Both seemed to draw the respect out of you without your consent as you lower your head and tuck your tail between your legs. Power radiated from them both, and you’re unsure whether it was the large, dark grey male with golden eyes, or the black female with bright green eyes that had the strongest air to them. They both stood across from each other, and large groups of other wolves and Werelings in human forms stand on each side behind them. All of their eyes bore into you and you stop as you stand before the two obvious leaders.

Your muscles tense and they begin to shake as your wolf side slowly draws you towards one side, your true nature, good or evil, slowly reveals itself as you make your decision. Which side will you choose? Will you choose the path of light and good? Or the path of dark and evil?

Venantium or Eternals?

1 A Family of Darkness on Sun May 12, 2013 3:22 pm

Calloway walked from street to street, covering his face with his beanie. The lights of New York City cascaded down the walls to the ground, causing shadows to dance along the floor. He was fatigued from the days without rest and needed a place to stay.

The male walked a block or two and started to give up when he came across a strange hotel. T'was not the look that caught his eyes, for they all looked the same, it was the smell. Stopping, he looked up to read the name. "Francesca Hotel." Calloway murmured. The area smelled of fear from mortals, but loyalty from something he didn't yet understand. The male walked in, keeping his beanie on his head. Calloway walked towards the front counter, wishing to ask some questions of this hotel. Instead, he just looked at the female who sat there. It was almost as if she understood what he wanted and knew who he was. She picked up the phone and spoke words regular humans could not hear, but somehow, he could. "A boy with our smell is here to meet you." She whispered. The girl looked at him, and told him to sit. "She will be right with you." Calloway was clueless, but he kept a straight face and nodded. The boy turned and walked to the jet black couch.

His mouth was parched and he was half asleep. He would be of no use if he had to fight right about now. Hoping that whoever the 'she' was that she'd be here soon. With his hand under his chin and his eyes closed, he waited.

The black haired beauty of striking emerald eyes flanked left down the road at lightning speed behind the wheel of nothing more than an Algera R, in hurry back home after the call of someone in waiting for her presence. All that could be seen was the slight glimpses of her features and the white and blue striped body of the car swipe passed concrete shafts within the parking lot building. It's headlights kept the darkened building perfectly lite for her to see, not that she needed it anyway due to her natural ability to see in the dark. Ever so swiftly, she swerved passed sleeping vehicles to only reach the abandoned corner that held her own reserved spot next to two different cars of hers; an evergreen 96 Chevy Yenko Camaro. The other, a fainted red 89 Dodge D100. Indeed the pick-up wasn't the most expensive car she had owned, but it drove like a champ and she loved it dearly.

Noctavia reaved the engine to a slow stop, putting her sunglasses back down to shade her eyes from being noticed. That was the last thing she wished to encounter was one of the wasteful employees of both her kind and mortal. She pivoted her long legs out of the automobile, combat heels hitting the ground with a small click as she stood. A few pets of her tribal patterned skirt, the Alphess shut the car door and strolled over to the elevator, remembering to lock up before doing so.

Once inside the lobby of the luxurious home of hers, she snuck a small glance out from underneath her shades to the wereling female whom ran the front desk. Before the woman could look up from sensing Noctavia's scent, the male's had already been targeted. She looked down to see if anything were to be misplaced. Fixing the cuff to her cherry red blazer and white blouse to cover her cleavage, the female shifter walked to the pair of elongated couches of the same color as her hair. The beanie he wore was similar to the many kinds of her own back in her closet. She loved the hat, and tended to where them when things weren't necessary for classy apparel. "Wake up, kid. I don't have all day." Noctavia waited patiently for the man to rise from his resting position, taking a seat upon the glass coffee table in the center of the couches. "I am Alphess Noctavia Dark, the Alpha of the Eternal Darkness pack that lives within these walls. What brings you here?"

Lazily moving his hand from his face, he opened his eyes to look up at the impatient female. Calloway was less than avid to get into what she calls a "pack," but he needed a place to stay so he decided to play along. "I am Calloway, a wandering son of the unknown." Knowing she probably needed more information, he gave it to her without hesitation. "I've no thought to what you said about this 'Eternal Darkness pack'. I just need a place to stay. I was walking along the streets in the shadows, shielding my face from the ever brightening lights, when I smelt a peculiar sent. That sent led me to this hotel where I ask for a night to sleep." Thinking she would laugh he stopped speaking.

T'was now that he noticed the female's features. Black hair, the color of darkness; lush green eyes, like the meadows he ran in Spring, with a seemingly lackluster gaze. Her nails were sharp, and she smelled like nothing he had smelt sense venturing into this city. A thought came to him, she could throw him out right now, without a second thought -- he couldn't afford to get on her bad graces. He kept his bright gaze directed to her eyes, making sure that she wouldn't catch him scanning up or down.

Even if he wasn't much of a talker himself, he pushed himself to explain whatever necessary. Calloway's vivid blue eyes saw her, not as some random girl, but as something else, as an equal. His confusion steadily grew, not realizing the obvious. He sat straighter, looking at her, awake and waiting for her response.

"Nice name, nothing I've ever heard before that's for sure. You new to the big city or what? You don't seem like the New Yorker I usually come across." Noctavia leaned back on the palms of her hands, slowly crossing her slender long legs over each other neatly in a sophisticated manner. She sighed heavily, exchanging a glance between the two pools of clear blue orbs he held. He certainly wasn't the most social wereling she had met, but definitely not the least fascinating. The Alphess did not enjoy one 'staying the night' unless they were trusted. Sure he was another sifter, but that didn't mean others like the two of them could just trust them instantly by their own scent. It didn't work like that and Noctavia knew it clearly.

She lightly bit the inside of her lip in consideration, then slowly letting out a breathe. "This is not a day care camp, Calloway. We do not take the less-fortunate into our arms and let them sleep in our beds. If you wish to join my pack, so be it. But you must prove me that you are worthy. I'm not going to let someone spend the night and leave the next morning. I have a pack here including very strong warriors that wouldn't think twice in killing a loner that comes into our lands. The decision is on the table, you either leave to where ever you came from or think of joining me." Noctavia shrugged slightly, her face drained of emotions but leaving the seriousness behind. As much as she had a talent for lying, she was not going to give him false information just so he had have his ass kicked. Calloway seemed like a nice kid, but was nice enough to impress her?

Calloway watched the strange female, not wishing to answer, but also not wishing to be impolite. "Thank you, Noctavia." He said in reply to her comment on his name. "No, I was never born here, but my instincts told me to come. Almost like they said I'd have a life here." Practically as he said it, he realized that his insticts were connected with this form of his. A wolf.... A pack... It all connects! The male just about lit up with excitement inside, yet he made sure not to show it, for his eyes remained cloudy with exhaustion. He caught a glimpse from the bottom corner of his eye that she had crossed her legs. Not letting himself look down, as he would have if he were not in dire need of sleep, he kept his eyes trained on hers, still waiting for a "Yes, you can stay." Or the opposite.

Noticing that she was trying to consider him, his hope had sparked. Listening to her every word she gave, he cautiously replied. "I understand. If I were in your position, I would think but the same." In all his confusion, he thought, prove to her that I am worthy? How? He held onto her last words, ' either leave to where ever you came from or think of joining me.' There was no home for someone like himself, no one would care to have him, they would all be afraid. He would have to travel forever, not letting anyone get close, not trusting a single soul. He had spent seven years doing this -- no parents, no friends, no known family. He was sick of it. What if I could stay this time? he thought. What if I could actually make friends and have a home, a family? His mind took him back to her words that the warriors wouldn't think twice to kill him. I'd get stronger, the male mentioned to himself.

Having this back and forth conversation within himself, his blue eyes dimmed, not seeming to be in the present any longer -- he was back with his parents. They were smiling, looking down on him. He had been just as happy as they, practically jumping with excitement. He was but 8 years old. Then, just as fast as he had seen them, they vanished. Calloway was alone, in a burned, run down house, with nothing but his mind and the cloths on his back. His whole past had flashed before his very eyes within a second of time. Now, he was back in the hotel, back in front of the Alphess. Noting his final decision, he spoke to her. "How do I prove that I am worthy? What is it that I am required to do?" He sat a little straighter, awaiting her response, her smile of sorts.

His decision made her flash a white, toothy grin. She had no worries that he would want to leave, not that the Alphess cared. But what's not to like in having what is another, pure-blood possibly be a part of her pack? "Welcome to New York, Calloway. I hope the citizens greeted you in the classy manner they own." A sense of sarcasm to the acts of a common New Yorker made her chuckle softly to herself. If there was one thing she was an expert on, it was blending into the backgrounds and persuading people to believe there is nothing different about her. Noctavia expected most of her pack to learn the ways of camouflage as well, but it's something that takes time like everything else in the world.

"The key to proving your worthiness, is honesty and respect. Two crucial things to surviving my pack. You must respect all ranks from warrior all the way up to me. Omegas you are free to bother and pick on, but I don't want to hear there's a fight going on with one of my 'co-workers.'" -She quoted the word with her two fingers, setting them back down before continuing. "See, when I first came here, the original owner was having issues in paying for it. I agreed to help with the budget as long as I received the last five floors from the top for my own business which would be my pack. Most of the workers here are mortal, but as you can see, the woman at the front desk is just another like us. You can trust her, but..." Noctavia leaned in closer to his ear and kept her voice out of earshot so the female shifter could not listen. "She flirts with every brute that comes into this lobby, just a warning."

The Alphess leaned back on the coffee table to her original position. "I must know that you will respect every rank and treat them like you would want to be treated as well as take your own life for them in battle." She paused for Calloway to respond. Then for a moment or two, she opened her cherry red lips for more. "What is your greatest and weakest points? Are you capable of keeping wolfie in tact when it is necessary, or do you need progress? You don't come off as an angry guy or anything, but I've been wrong before. Please be willing to ask questions and dude, don't be stupid about it. Choose your questions wisely."

Calloway listened to her words, saw her smile, heard her slight chuckle, and responded with ease. "I never was given the chance to talk with any of them, the mortals. I usually hide in the shadows so no one can see me." He shrugged. "I am used to moving every month or so. Ever since..." He faded out, guessing that she knew what he was speaking of-- of his 13th year. As he talked on, Calloway became more relaxed near this female. She was like him; a freak like some would say or a god like others would whisper. Either way, he liked her and whatever this "pack" was, he knew he'd follow her or any other of his new found family to the death if he must.

Still a little confused, he duly noted within the depths of his mind that Omegas were obviously the lowest and she, being the Alphess, was the highest. What are all of the ranks? He wondered. The male nodded and replied with every inch of seriousness he could muster. "I'm not one to start the fight. You'll only here of me fighting if it is for my defense, never otherwise." Listening to every word, he made sure not to lower his interest in her story for it may come across as rude to Noctavia. As she leaned in, he slightly moved his head towards her as well, letting some of his blond hair fall over his eyes. "I see." The male murmured. "Thank you for the advice."

The male shifter moved his position so that he was slightly turned to her, moved his hair from his eyes and looked at her. Calloway softened his eyes none, and responded with the utmost courage. "Of course. I will never let anyone fall while I am still breathing. I will always have their back, and no matter how I see them outside of battle, when fighting, I will be there to help." His blue eyes sparkled with every word, for he truly knew that he would do so. He thought a moment when he heard her next words. The male thought to himself. My greatest and my weakest points... He spoke, unsure if this is still true. "I haven't had much time with people of my own kind or not, but I have found that my strongest point is thinking things through to the very stitch. My weakest is most likely..." He looked down, looking into the past to find an answer. Finding what his mind told him, he looked back up to the female. "...letting go." He kept quiet while she spoke and replied when it was his turn to do so. "Though I have only shifted a few times, I am able to keep him locked up when needed. Trust me, there have been many other cases where I wanted to shift but knew that I had to keep myself in check." The male yawned, unable to control his weariness from showing through. Straightening his posture and forcing his eyes open, he spoke once more to her. "I'll be sure to ask when answers are needed." Calloway watched Noctavia, not knowing of her thoughts towards him or of her answer. He awaited for her response, sitting across from her on the jet black couch.

[[ I"M SO SORRY SO SHORT >___< ]]

He spoke with what she sensed was truth for he was never stammering or giving a slightest hint that he was lying. After every few answers and pauses to his sentences she would nod in understanding and wait until he was completely finished to politely answer. "Thank you for the honesty. I know now what to expect out of you when it comes to duties and protection. Not many...younger..shifters know how to control what they are and end up making themselves known to the public if not to someone else." She was pleased, reliefed to know that she would not have to worry about this one causing the trouble. But would he be the fightee that would get wound up in the middle of the feud in order to stop it? "You said you have only shifted a few times. May I ask why? Basically all my members have done it many times from what I recall, how come you don't?"

She had never in her days come across a shifter that has only shifted a few times and it made her curious to know as is to why Calloway didn't. There had to be a reason and if not she would find him useless to answer such a simple question. "How great are your hunting skills too? Of course we leave the Omegas to go out and bring food supplies for the hotel, but you've manage to fill out just find. Surely you've gone hunting in your other form for food."

((It's all good ^w^))

The male nodded, glad that he was different than the younger shifters. yet when the question of his reasoning with the few shiftings came up, he practically froze. His mind raced with answers he did not have. Calloway tried to keep his eyes calm and his whole person collected, but he had felt himself shake. Closing his eyes, he took in a deep breath and laid his thoughts back into order. Opening his bright blue eyes, he found his answer. "I have a past, a dark past. Never even knowing my parents, I had no idea who I was. All I remember, was my name." Calloway. It echoed through his mind as he spoke. "I hadn't known exactly what I was when I turned 13. In my eyes, the eyes of an unknowing and lonely kid, I became a freak. However, the main reason was that I was afraid. I was afraid that I could no longer find my family, that they would not want me." The male continued, unshaken and unstirred from this confession. "Your members knew who they were, most likely had their parents too." He looked her dead in the eyes then, making sure that she knew he was different, that he was strong and could handle being alone. "That, Miss Noctavia, is why."

Once done with his dreadful given question, the male was glad to move onto hunting. He loved hunting, both in his wolf form and out. He couldn't help but smile when she simply said the word. Calloway showed his pearls of white, despite all that he had said, all that he had done. "Hunting is one of my specialties." He said to her, proudly. "My smell is keen enough to sense a mouse just beyond the fourth stoplight down main from here." He broadened his smile, glad to tell someone of this awesome ability. "Though, some may have this same ability, if not better, my cleverness comes especially in handy when trapping dinner." The brute replayed his many hunts. Some were of him at his usual 5 '3, and others were showing reddish-blond paws that made him stand at 10 '6 in height. His heart beat raced, remembering every turn, every pounce-- every kill. "If my already planned attacks fail to work, then I improvise. Starting out, of course I lost a hare or two. That night I went to bed hungry, yet in the morning, I awoke strong and ready to improve." Dizziness suddenly swept over him, making him reach a hand to the table just in front of him. He avoided touching Noctavia, resting his hand just beside her long slender legs. Calloway closed his eyes to let his head clear. Regaining himself, the male returned his hand to his lap and looked at her once more.

When Calloway finished, she watched his every move like a vulture waiting to sore down to it's prey. He certainly was different, and the matter he was able to make it this far on his own formed questions in her mind that were better left unsaid. She reached out to prop him back up by the shoulder but before she could take down her hand from her lap, he had already beaten her too it, sitting up and looking at her for her response. "I understand where you are coming from. I too had a dark past that I prefer not to bring up. Why do you think I started this pack? Sure as Hell wasn't because I felt I could rule over Bravehearts, not that I couldn't anyway but that's besides the point here. I made one for many reasons but the most important one was to start new. Take my advice and before you ask, yes I'm being honest."

Noctavia pursed her lips, looking between both of his icy hues til she had his attention. "Don't waste the rest of your life worrying about the past and future. Worry about the present and your surroundings. Study the enemy before you think ahead and nothing. Nothing will get in your way. I've been living off those words for almost ninety percent of my life and here I stand with a pack that could take down two enemies if we tried." The alphess leaned back in her seat, watching the male carefully for a fear or something in his eyes that would lead her to know he understood what she was saying. He seemed exhausted. Confused. It reminded her of the times her own wolf's thoughts would control her around and refuse to leave by her command. And when they would leave, a massive headache would follow. "Now." Noctavia brought herself up to her feet, staring down at Calloway whom looked up at her. "I believe it's time for you to head to your room, Warrior." Nodding her head back, she cocked a half smile. "You can ask the front desk to give you a key. Blondie will let you without thinking, I bet."

Noctavia turned her back on him as she walked away, clicking her heels in sync and stopping just short of the elevator doors that opened for her to enter. "Oh and before I forget." She turned her head to face him and winked goodbye. "Welcome to the pack, kid." She stepped into the metal box and within seconds, she was gone.

Before he took back his hand, he had seen her move a bit. Calloway smiled on the inside, not letting her see that this simple act made him go slightly boyish. He nodded when she spoke, understanding her reasoning with making such a pack, though he was still questioning the whole idea in his mind. When she said that name, Braveheart, he didn't quite know what she meant, but he decided not to ask of it. He knew that he would eventually understand. Before she started her next words, he spoke up. "I wasn't going to ask if you were being honest." He objected. "For I know that you have no reason to lie."

Listening to Noctavia's words of wisdom, the male nodded and would occasionally blur out due to exhaustion. Once she told him of the strength of her pack, his eyes seemed to light up. He certainly was awake now. As she started to look at him without words, he grew more and more awkward. 'What exactly was she thinking? Will she just tell me to leave? Think me as being useless to her pack?' He wondered to himself. With these thoughts, he grew more timid. 'If only I weren't so tired.' He whined to himself. Once she started to speak again, and he realized that it was not about declining him to her pack, he relaxed. When the Alphess mentioned the blonde woman at the front desk, he glanced over to her. Calloway looked back to Noctavia and nodded once more. "I see, thank you." He said to her. Watching her walk away, he yawned. Hearing her speak once more, he tuned his ears to catch the sound. He opened his mouth to thank her, but she was gone before he could. The male sighed and got up to walk to the registration to collect his key. "I sure hope I don't find trouble in this pack." He said to himself.
