PART 22: SWORD OF ARCHNEA
Heaven Sky is transforming into a four-footed animal. Just like when Gabriel transformed. He is five times bigger than the original animal. It's clear now what kind of vampire he is. He is a tiger vampire. His fur is silver in color just like the color of his hair with black stripes. His eyes are still in that mesmerizing mixture of colors. Unlike Gabriel, though, he does not seems fierce. He seems like a tamed wild animal.
Isaac waves goodbye to the six of them and hops onto the four-footed Heaven and with a bright white light, they disappeared. All five of them froze at the front lawn of Jerome's mansion. They are still in a so-called disbelief state that there are other creatures like them. Nicolaus, on the other hand, stays inside the house without a care in the world of the kind of situation that they're facing with.
Alexander looks down at the sword in his hand. It's a white sword with crystal-like blade. Isaac had informed them that it is a special sword made from angel's feathers. It can only be used once and it must be used to kill the devil because normal blade can't harm him.
Jerome scanned the area surrounding his mansion. Yes, there are salts being poured in a circle around his mansion. Isaac said he poured it to avoid of them being heard by the devil. He said that the devil knew of their plan. By putting salt in a circle around them, they will be out of the devil's radar. Isaac told them to be careful because the devil knew of their plan all along and the only thing that the devil did not know of is about the sword of Archea that they have in their possession.
"Well, better than nothing," Alexander said to them, feeling the breeze of the cold night wind blowing at his face.
Suddenly, Gabriel chukles. "What's wrong with you?!" Lucas asked him, feeling annoyed at his sudden behavior.
He only smiles slyly. "I just think it's funny that evil creatures like us have names like Angel and Heaven. Hehehe," he said and chuckles again.
Dasmond and Alexander gave him a rather scornful look. "You're annoying," Alexander scorned at him. That makes Gabriel laughs even more.
"Oh come on.. A war is coming. Can we at least laugh while we still can?" Gabriel said.
Jerome and everyone only smirk annoyingly at him and left him there as they all enter the house one by one. As Gabriel sat there alone at the lawn, he looks up at the moon hung upon sky and sighs. Sadness fills his eyes.
"Confess already," someone said. He turns to look at the person. It's Dasmond. He hadn't left.
Gabriel only smiles sadly at Dasmond. There's no need to hide anything from Dasmond because Dasmond will know everything. He sighs again. "I can't," that's all he manage to say, supressing a painful feeling he's feeling inside. Tonight, he will compel Lucas to bite the rest of them and tonight might also be the last night for them to be together.
