The Rising pt 3

 

After some thought they both agreed they would help Alicia they knew that Capri was no longer fit to rule as queen and even if Vladimir’s rule was harsh at least it wouldn’t be a rule based on lies. The three of them left in search of the old vampire that would raise Vladimir he was an old servant of Vladimir and was always treated well so Alicia had no reason to think he would refuse her request. After only a day and half of walking they found the old vampires home he sat and listened to there request and told Alicia it had been a long time since he practised such things but as long as they were all aware of the dangers he would help them. So the next evening after gathering the supplies they needed they began walk the old vampire told Alicia he would need several  victims for when Vladimir  woke up she told him they would  supply them when needed and they carried on there way. It seemed like they were walking forever but finally they arrived at the place where Vladimir was laid in his tomb there was no sign of any entrance and Alicia began to think Sindre and Morten had made the whole thing up. With that she saw Sindre pull away some shrubbery she saw a stone entrance that had been well hidden between the pair of them they remembered how the entrance opened and in no time they were inside. They each took a torch in hand and lit it there were many steps to walk down but finally they entered a chamber in the centre they saw a large heavy raised coffin the old vampire told them to remove the lid, it took some time as it was heavy but finally the lid began to slide off revealing the shriveled body of Vladimir. The old vampire told them he needed several victims for when Vladimir woke up and more bodies he could drain the blood from before hand. He needed to poor fresh blood all around Vladimir as he lay sleeping the blood would soak into his dried skin and help in the procedure of reviving him. Sindre and Morten left to bring back the victims that would help in raising there new king. Lucky for them they came across some humans herding sheep there was seven people for the taking plenty for the deed that had to be done the people were well spread out so it was easy to take each one. After getting them all back to the tomb the old Vampire separated four of them taking a large dagger in hand he opened each one up, laying them on top Vladimir’s body there blood ran from them  slowly filling the stone casket the level of blood rose higher with each body that drained out. Finally Vladimir was soaking in a warm bath of fresh blood the old vampire said it would take several hours before any sign of Vladimir waking up was seen so they decided to leave him alone in the hope when they returned he would be laying there awake.

 

They waited as each hour passed finally seven long hours later they returned to the tomb and  just as the old vampire had said Vladimir was laying there with his eyes open but still very week he was unable to move. Alicia was over whelmed with emotion she wondered if Vladimir would recognize her after so long but as she came within view of Vladimir she saw his eye light up and she knew he remembered her. With each passing hour Vladimir was able to move a little more by the next day he could sit up several days on he could walk although he was still to week for any kind of confrontation. The remaining humans that had been taken were one by one given to Vladimir it had been a long time since he had killed but there were some things a Vampire didn’t forget how to do and killing was one of them he mutilated each worse than the last getting stronger still after feeding upon each. Finally some two weeks later his appearance was back to how Alicia remembered Vladimir took time to thank Sindre and Morten the old vampire was told he would be sent for once Capri was no longer ruler of her people and Alicia was told how sorry Vladimir was that she lost her brother Zarif because of this and the role Alicia played in raising Vladimir she would be the one to sit by his side for all time once he was back in power. Vladimir told the four of them the next fight was to be between Capri and himself no other would die if he wasn’t to rule he would accept defeat and die with honour but if it was truly his time to rule Capri would die by his hand in front of all to see. As he had been sleeping for so long he asked the three of them if they wanted to go hunting with him it had been ages since he went on a hunt to feel the surge of blood rush through his veins he said before he attempted to over throw Capri he wanted to get the feel for the fight again so he took a few weeks with Alicia and the others just getting strong and getting the savage back that used to shine from him with ease.

 

Finally he felt strong and ready for the task ahead Sindre and Morten was able to show them away into Capri’s fortress with out being detected by her guards they knew it wouldn’t be easy to get to her but one by one they killed all they came in contact with finally just leaving the guards that were outside Capri’s bed chamber door. Alicia wanted the pleasure of taking these out she wanted to prove to Vladimir she had what it took to sit by his side so he let her have them she approached them as she began to talk to one she pulled a dagger from within her clothes cutting his throat he fell to the ground quickly she spun around clipping the throat of the other neither quite dead she sank her teeth deep into each of there necks leaving them dead where they lay Vladimir wasted no time  entering Capri’s chamber she was not alone her man bitch of the night rushed at Vladimir but all he got for his trouble was to feel Vladimir’s bite. Capri couldn’t believe her eyes unable to muster two words together she ran from Vladimir calling for her guards but no one came to help her. She picked up a sword and begun to defend herself although she was a woman she was able to take care of herself very well but she had let her skills go over the past months and was a little rusty at  using the sword. But still she had the strength of any man Vladimir had fought in the past and a fight to the death commenced. Word of the fight soon leaked out and filtered down to all that lived within the grounds of the fortress there were mixed feelings from the people but the majority welcomed a new ruler and hoped  Vladimir was victorious. The two of them fought long and hard for several hours each wounding the other with there blades blood from one rubbing off on the other as each came close enough to touch.  The fight ended up outside and the people could see for themselves how vicious a fight it really was Vladimir couldn’t believe a female could  fight him for so long and still have the will after several hours to win. All of a sudden Vladimir could hear the people chanting but instead of hearing the name of there queen he heard his own name being shouted to here this made him feel good inside and a new strength came over him. Capri couldn’t believe her ears after so many years of rule her own people wanted her dead. Off her guard from hearing this Vladimir managed to slice her leg taking her to the ground he knew it was only a matter of time before he was victorious and kicked Capri in the face knocking her onto her back. On the other side of the court yard was a table Capri had used for public killings Vladimir took Capri by her bad leg and dragged her to the other side of the yard laying his sword down he lifted her onto the table spreading her legs and tying off her ankles doing the same with her wrists he raised the table so all could see there queens rule come to an end. With Alicia by his side he took the dagger Alicia was holding and looking Capri in the eyes he lunged the dagger deep into Capri’s chest cutting out her heart he turned and held the still pumping heart high for all to see finally he bit into the heart ripping it into two before throwing it to the ground. There was a sudden silence as all looked on there new king. Vladimir said nothing he simply took his new queen in hand and retired inside happy in the fact he was once again ruler over all that lived under him.
