His build was a strong set, his markings glowing with a fiery rage. “I GIVE YOU THE GIFT OF THE ANIMALS AND THIS IS HOW YOU REPAY ME?!” his voice was a deep husk that echoed through the temple. “hundreds of years of hate and war?! The moment an opportunity arises for peace you use it as a weapon?!” he thrashed around cursing and dropped to his knees in front of the boy. He mumbled with such a remorseful drawl I swore he was about to cry. “ gift of animals, yet you act as humans.” The boy stood there not daring to look down at his master. He knew of his mistakes and yet all he could focus on was finishing what he started. There in the middle of the room lay beaten and limp, the body of a small child he had feasted upon. As his master busted out a gut wrenching scream the boy collapsed under the pressure of guilt and remorse. He hadn’t meant to start something so out of control and wrong. As the scent of the small childs death filled the room it was enough to make him wretch. His master grabbed the boys arm and started to haul him up from his face, he didn’t fight knowing it would lead to another angry outburst from his superior. “Jackson” the man murmured as he pushed the boys hair gently from his eyes. By the looks of the length he had neglected care and nourishment for years. Five years it had been since they last faced each other. Five years it has taken their society to fall and feed upon the ones they protect. “Look at me child” jacksons soft blue grey eyes lifted to meet his masters. “where are the others?” his response was a forced croak of pain “im unaware. I tried to keep up but I wasn’t as fast as they were. I stayed and tried to survive.” Tears formed at the ends of the mans eyes, he fought but was defeated at the thought of his creatures being abandoned and terrified of their own kind. What he started wasn’t a mistake. The mistake was letting them live without surveillance.  This is a mistake he will never let escape him again.
