Hello my name is Mamoru and this is my saga. The year was 2006 when I went through my change, and becoming who or what I am. I'm a half breed my mom was a vampire and as for my dad, a werewolf. It was a little hard growing up with what I am. Since I was having the urge to drink the blood of mortals, or resisting the want to rip them to shreds. At first I didn't want to kill people, or drink their blood. That's because I didn't go through my change until I was fourteen. This is weird because if you're born from different parents it's normally at age two. But I think it was because my mom and dad were never there to teach me what I needed to know. I found out what I was when I started to want blood so I asked my foster parents about it. They told me what happened and what I was. As I listened I found out that my mom and dad were trying to protect me when they left me. Curiously I asked them if my parents had told them where I might find them. They thought I'd try to kill them, which I felt like doing. Because I thought they didn't want to see what I would become. So therefore I started to become more of what I really am. Yeah growing up without parents is hard, but when they don't want you to come around it's pretty peaceful. So I moved out of my foster parents' house. I found a little house out in the middle of The Feral Forest to move into so I could practice my skills of becoming a true born hunter.
A few years have passed since I left my old home. I've been going into town for a while now to see people and also to see if I can control myself. I stumbled upon this very beautiful girl. Long blonde hair, fair skin, and curvy she smelled so good. She looked at me with arcane sapphire eyes that scanned over me. I didn't think I could control myself around her so I left town and didn't come back for a couple of days. I was trying not to lose my sanity that's a big reason for me leaving town. Also I thought I was a danger to her and myself.
Today is going to be different I'm going to test myself again and no matter what I won't leave town. On my way to Setsuna some humans stopped me and told me that a blonde haired girl was looking for me. After that news I made haste towards town. When I finally reached its gates some guards told me the same thing. So I began my search for her which wouldn't last long because I'm a pro when it comes to tracking anything.
As I searched the streets of Setsuna I finally seen her, but she was walking in the other direction of me. I ran after her hoping that I would be able to control myself. I finally caught up to her "Hey girl I've heard you were looking for me but why?" I wondered perplexed.
"'Cause I wanted ask some questions about the other day." She plainly stated.
"Well how about we start with with names first then we will get to those other questions. Sound fair enough?" I asked. But there is something that made me run away from her the other day. I'm not sure what it was but it hasn't left either. She smelt of sweet rain as it filled my nostrils I thought is this why I feel a little attraction towards her. The smell is almost recognizable…wait it's the smell of a werewolf.
"HELLO…" She said sounding a little annoyed.
"Sorry I got lost in thought." I said apologetically
"My name is Saya Cross. What's your name?" She asked quizitively
"Mamoru but for now that's all you need to know. Sorry but I'm going to have to cut our talk short. I left with supper on the stove and I'm a little hungry. We could continue this tomorrow if you'd like. How about my house say around lunch?"
"Well Mamoru it's alright. I understand that stuff happens to me all the time." She ended with a joke. "But how will I find your house? I don't even know where you live."
"I live in The Feral Forest it's the only house in it so it won't be that hard." I stated as I turned on my heel to leave. I had to think about what I had just found out.
"Ok I'll see you tomorrow at lunch time." She called after me.
As I'm walking I can't help to think that she's a werewolf and what that might mean for people in Setsuna. That there is a half breed and a full blooded werewolf walking among them I wonder if they know the dangers of that. Buy the time I got done thinking I was almost home. I seen a small buck standing in the thicket grazing on the lush green he could find. *Maybe I should kill it so I'll have something to cook for Saya tomorrow* I thought to myself.
So I lunged toward it, running at a quarter of the speed I could run, hoping I could catch it. At the last second it noticed me and tried to run but I was slightly faster. I hit it with such force that I didn't need to rip its heart out or cut its throat. It died as soon as I smashed into it. After I killed my lunch for tomorrow I kept running at a steady pace. I didn't want my meat to spoil so I cleaned it out as soon as possible. When I got done cleaning my catch I pondered on the events of the day and what I had learned.
Waking up is one of the things I hate about starting a new day. But once you get me up and going I'm almost unstoppable. I was preparing lunch when I noticed that Saya hadn't come yet. So I got dressed and headed to Setsuna only to find that she was sitting in the park. Her pools of cerulean staring right through me as if she had been waiting for someone…oh wait that someone must be me but why?
"Hey did you forget that we were having lunch at my house? So we could talk things out." I stated with a slight tint of anger in my voice.
"Took you long enough to come after me. I was on my way but then freaked out at the sight of what looked like a murder." She said a little frightened.
"That's from where I killed lunch for today. Now come on we have lots to talk about." I told her as we started to walk together.
On the walk home as we went past the "murder" area I described what happened and all I got was an 'Oh really is that so'. Needless to say I got a little ticked off when she did that. But instead of making a big fuss about it I decided to keep to myself for a little while. We were coming up on an old oak tree that I had used for practice like: punches, kicks, throwing knives (I know I'm a fearless hunter but I have my infatuations.), and a little sword practice as well. I stopped in front of the tree to look at all the abrasions that it had taken from many of my weapons and from my hands.
"Why did we stop? This isn't your house…right?" she asked with some derision in her voice.
"You really think I would live in something like this?"
"No…you just look taken aback by this tree."
"I use it as a punching bag and a target." I explained
"Ooooh… I get it it's like your own training ground huh?"
"Yep. What gave you that idea Sherlock my explanation or the marks on the tree." I stated sarcastically. "Why don't we finally get some grub I'm starved."
"Sounds good to me…I'm gorged." Saya said as her tummy growled
We finally reached my nice little house in the middle of absolutely nowhere. I ran into the house to get the food and bring it out so we could eat at the picnic table. We said grace over the food and started eating. Saya finished before me only because I had a big breakfast earlier this morning. I finished my plate and grabbed Saya's plate, and took them to wash. When I walked back outside Saya was nowhere to be found.
"Saya w…" is all I could get out as she tried to surprise me by jumping out of a nearby tree. I spun around in enough time to get out of the way before she hit me. She hit the ground with a thud then it cracked.
"Ouch that kinda hurt. How did you know I was coming?"
"I've told you before your sent is very strong I can smell you coming from far off." I explained thoroughly. "If you're really close it's very very like a hundred times very strong!" I exclaimed.
"Oh so it's not like I stink just that my sent is strong. Got it." Saya said as she looked at me then a grin came and went off her face. *oh no here comes the twenty questions game. Well I told her I'd answer them* I thought to myself and then I groaned.
"So Mamoru how is it that you could tell that I am a werewolf and I don't even have a clue what you are?" She asked inquisitively
"Well my senses are more acute than yours most likely if you would practice with your own maybe then you'd know what I am. Once you hone in your senses then smell me it's still going to puzzle you." I stated plainly
"How would I do that? It's not like I'm going to go around sniffing people all day."
"No silly you could sit on that bench in the park and focus on nothing but the smells then from there go outside the walls and see what you can smell then."
"Okay. Next. Why won't you tell me what you are before I train my senses?"
"Alright alright if you must know…my kind of breed is not very abundant in this world at all. In fact I went to the library in Setsuna to see what I could find and most species like me are killed at birth. That's why not many of my kind are well known." I looked off in the distance at the thought of my parents.
"Is there something wrong?" Saya asked caringly
"Just thinking of my parents they left me with foster parents. To protect me. All along I thought they'd abandoned me. That's why I've been training for so long 'cause I was going to find them and kill them for not taking me with them. But now I understand why they couldn't take me with them but, why should I stop training because of that." I said as I looked at Saya who was almost in tears.
"Something wrong Saya?" I wondered.
"I'm sorry that you had to go through all that Mamoru."
"It's alright I'm over it now it doesn't really bother me anymore. I only want to live for the future and live in the present." I said with no regret in my voice.
"Hey you still haven't told me what you are." Saya pointed out.
"I'm…a…a…I'm a Hybrid. My mom was vampire and my dad a werewolf."
"WOW…Ummmm… I wasn't expecting that at all." Saya said almost speechless.
"Is that all you're not going to freak out. I thought you'd run away from me?" I wondered vexed by her response.
"To tell you the truth I am a little scared but I think I can hang with the big guy." She said as she came over and pated my back. "Huh what's that on your back?"
"I like to keep certain things covered up so people don't think I'm a demon or something." I said with a little hinderness in my voice. Since Saya wasn't human I took off my black shirt to show her what I keep covered. Also I took off what kept them bound to my body. My wings sprung out opening to their full extension almost a staggering twenty foot. Ten foot for each wing that still amazes me.
"Whoa they are really pretty! The color is it crimson or burgundy?" Saya asked a little confused.
"If they were any of those two they would be crimson." I answered looking at them. Saya started to walk towards me then turned and started to stroke my right wing. I had to say it felt pretty weird but I put up with it because it seemed to keep her amused. Then she looked at me and smiled *oh God what is she going to do now* was my thought when I noticed her hand start at the end of my wing.
"What are you do……….ouch that hurts stop." I demanded with anger apparent in my voice.
"I just thought it'd be funny…hehe…what happens if I do this?" Saya teased as she pulled out one of my feathers.
"Don……son of a……just stop. It hurts leave them alone okay." I told her as I jerked them away from her grasp.
"That's just plain mean you know I was just having fun." She said as she stormed to the table and sat down.
"Now how am I the one being mean when you're the one who pulled out one of my feathers and rubbed my feathers the wrong way?" I wondered as I followed her. She giggled slightly then she turned around.
"I'm just joking calm your ass. I'm sorry for hurting your beautiful wings." She said apologetically.
"Ok so now what do you want to do?" I asked curiously. There was a short pause then I noticed something in her eyes that reminded me of a look I used to have…when I was wanting to hunt.
"Well I'd hate to ask but do you care if I used your land to hunt? So when I go back to town I won't want to kill anyone because I just can't eat and be satisfied. I have to drink blood or I'll kill someone." Saya said conceriningly.
"I don't care just don't take too much I have to eat as well. O…and if you see any of my guards tell them I allowed you to hunt here ok." I forewarned her. 'Cause my guards don't give much of a warning before they attack."
"Ok. Thank you I'll see ya in the mornin." Saya said thankfully as she ran off. After she left I went back to my humble abode to have me a little late night snack. I was about to pass out on my photon bed/couch thing. When someone started to bang excessively on my front door. So I got up went to the door to see what the big commotion was about. When I got to the door and flung it open it was one of my guards holding on to a dark figure. Taking a closer look at the body it was Saya.
"I demand you tell me why you have this girl tied up!!!!"
"Uh…sir she said you told her she could hunt but I wanted to bring her here for verification My Lord."
"Let her go now and as a punishment you will stand here and let her do whatever she wants to."
"As you wish My Lord." As the guard cut the ropes Saya jumped up and looked at me.
"Did you get enough to drink?" I wondered
"No I didn't even get one little bitty sip." She said as she pouted
"Ok. Well drink up." I gestured toward the guard
"Are you sure?"
"Yea it's just a human they obey me without question."
"Way cool some time could you teach me how to do that?"
"Sure but for now get something to drink and eat."
