A/N This is my first novel/screen write. As the format, it's
written as a screen write so there will be a cast, I just have to
figure out who, so... yeah. I hope that you enjoy this and please
put in your input!!! This is co-written, so appropriate credit
goes to Screna B. Huddleston, my friend and sister at
The Clash of Paths
Raena runs through the woods, adrenaline pumping through her
veins like fire, her legs burning from the exertion. She would be
constantly looking behind her, hunters close on her trail,
shooting tranquilizer darts in her direction. She keeps running,
running from the fear, running from the enemy, but mostly,
running from the ones who caused her pain.
Lilith would sit on the first branch of a tree, swinging her legs
back and forth, listening to the sounds of the forest calmly and
quietly, hearing the rustling of insects in the leaves with her
vampire hearing. Soon, she would hear some running and the sound
of darts, guessing hunters were after some poor animal again.
Staying where she was she wouldn't do anything unless the hunters
had interrupted her quiet time; which is one thing she wouldn't
be happy about.
Raena keeps running, whimpering quietly as a dart passes just
mere inches from her ear. She runs under Lilith's branch, not
noticing her, not caring as she was fleeing for her life. The
hunters wouldn't pay much attention either, one of them calling
out, "Don't let her out of her sight! Once we get tranq in her
she'll tire and we'll take her back!" The other two hunters keep
shooting, each dart getting closer and closer.
Lilith sighs as she watches the girl running below her branch
grumbling low in her chest as her peace was ruined. She jumps
down from her branch, carefully avoiding all of the darts with
her vampire speed. Lilith stood there, looking like a mere human,
she says to the last hunter that passed, "Excuse me, can you tell
me where to find a drink around here?"
The first two that passed Lilith would continue to chase Raena,
each gasping to catch their breaths.
As he had no time to bother with such things he would have
ignored her, but when she stopped him again he would ask quite
rudely, "What the hell do you want girl?"
Raena whimpers as one of the darts connect with her left thigh,
which causes her to stumble. Taking the dart out she would
continue running, but not fast enough as the tranquilizer starts
spreading through her adrenaline laced blood. Soon the world
would multiply in twos, and then fours and
The hunter who spoke to Lilith takes off at a run, one of the
other hunters calling out, "We got her! She's slowing
She would turn the the hunter, grabbing his arm before he left,
grabbing it tighter than any mere human as she bats her eyelashes
now. "Oh, please help a girl out, I can make it worth your
while." She smiled sweetly to the man, hoping to stop him so she
could drink from him and then attend to the
"I am not interested, now let go." He would say in a firm voice,
drawing his gun and aiming it at her.
Raena would run, even as the world continued to dance in front of
her eyes. Soon, she trips over a stick, making her fall, the
world would swirl in a dizzying circle, making it hard to stand
up, frantically she would feel along the ground for something to
hold onto as she felt the other two hunters grabbing her and
starting to pull her from the ground.
Hunters 1 and 2:
After Raena had fallen they would go over to her squirming body
and pick her up, only to have some trouble as she was holding
onto a tree root that was sticking from the ground in front of
She would look to Raena, feeling the time start to tick faster.
Lilith looked back to the hunter, "No need to be so rude, looks
like time is up for you..." She grins, revealing her fangs she
breaks his neck so there would be no sound alerting the other
hunters, then she bends down and drinks from him quickly.
Finishing her meal she heads towards the other two, "Well, hello
there, might I inquire what you're doing to that poor
Hunters 1 and 2:
They wouldn't pay attention to Lilith, as Raena was holding on
tightly to the root as they tried to pull her from the
She still holds on tightly to the branch, only now she would
start to cry, feeling the loss of her strength as the rest of the
tranquilizer was taking affect of her body.
She went over to the hunters now, angry at them for ignoring her.
Lilith grabbed one and showed him her fangs, "Don't ignore me,
you fragile human." With this being said she would punch him
square in the jaw, then throwing him into a tree with her vampire
Hunter 2, then 1:
The hunter would make contact with the tree, his body slumping to
the ground as the blow to his face would have him unconscious,
but the blow from the tree to his spine killed him. His body
would lay there slumped over. The other hunter would let go of
Raena, looking at Lilith and drawing his weapon, aiming it at the
vampire that killed the other guards, "Don't move, or it could be
your last!" This would be a bluff, but he hoped the vampire would
fall for it.
She would shrug as she tossed a smirk his way, "What makes you
think you can pull the trigger faster than I can kill you, human?
I feel I have a pretty good chance at getting to you first." She
would stand there with her hands on her hips, edging a little
closer to the hunter now, showing her fangs as she watched the
hunter carefully. "Your two friends are dead, what makes you
think you could stop me and this girl?"
"I could take down that girl very easily, I could simply do the
same to you." He explains, although it would be out of his butt,
stalling as he watched the vampire.
"I don't like hunters killing when there isn't a reason, unless
you have one?" She raised brow as she watched him, knowing he was
stalling as he was at a very strong
We don't kill, we just take back things that belong to other
people" He said this calmly, pulling the trigger as he hoped to
catch Lilith off guard.
After all that is happening the tranquilizer would finally cause
her to pass out.
She would quickly move, disarming him and throwing his weapon to
the side. Lilith would now be standing behind him, having him in
a choke hold, her mouth close to his neck, "That wasn't very
polite of you, so why not kill her? Who would she belong to?
That's not fun, all you ever want to do is cause
He struggles briefly, but feeling her fangs on his neck he stops,
"And how would you know if it causes pain or not? You're not in
her shoes." While he was talking he would pull a small dagger
from his waist band, moving slowly as to not alert
She hissed, pushing him away as Lilith stands in front of the
unconscious girl, looking to the hunter and his dagger. "It is
always that way with hunters like you, all of you are 'Oh, boo
hoo! I am weaker, so i must hurt others to show that I am strong'
" She mimics him, rolling her eyes.
"You should step away from her,who knows what she will do once
"Why is that? Do you want to touch her? Hurt her? Is that what
hunters do nowadays?" Lilith looked to him with a glare, seeing
the hunter as a rude and bad hunter, only after her kind for fun
and sense of security.
He smirks, "She's nothing more than a slave, " His smirk would
turn into a cocky grin, "But thank you for the idea, I will enjoy
her screams as she tries to escape from my arms as I pound into
her again and again." He would chuckle evilly as he imagined it.
Then, he would stop laughing, his face blank as now he pulls a
gun from the back of his waistband and shoots
The bullet would hit Lilith in the side as she takes in the
sudden change of mood. Her anger would have grown from just
simmering to a boiling point, she scratches her talon like nails
down his face and neck, leaving deep gashes that she left to
bleed. The hunter falls to his knees and screams in pain, holding
his face while Lilith would turn and pick up the unconscious
girl, running from the screaming hunter. Soon, she would set the
girl down under a tree as she had run about five miles away,
close enough to still hear them, but far enough away so his
buddies couldn't track her or the girl she had with her. Lilith
gently slaps the girls face, "Hey, girl, wake up you're away from
those hunters." She stands up, thinking to herself, "I should
just leave her here, she will be fine, I'm sure." Lilith would
get ready to leave, thinking this as she saw Raena start to wake
up, seeing that the tranquilizer starting to wear
