CATHERINE:

 

I paced my room impatiently. Why haven’t I been contacted yet? I was getting so restless! And the fact that Valerie and Joanne chose today to be noisy, didn’t help at all. I opened the door and yelled for them to be quiet. A thick silence followed, I smiled darkly. They knew better than to argue when I was in a bad mood. I glanced at the watch on my night table, it was five past seven. It was still early, argh!!! I closed my eyes in frustration. I can’t stand not knowing what happened, where’s Jenna? Why doesn’t anyone call me? As soon as I had that thought I felt a tingling sensation in my fingertips. I waited until it extended to my hands, then my elbows, and finally my whole body. Nosferatu, was calling me. Nosferatu? But, he was supposed to be sleeping? This was not good.

I opened my eyes about ten seconds later and I was greeted by complete darkness. My breath caught in my throat ( a figure of speech, of course). I wasn’t used to not being able to see in the dark, what with being a vampire and all. It was unnerving. Gradually I begun to see. I was in a tunnel of some kind. I could see a long hallway, at the end of this hallway, stood a dark, silhouette. Our father, Nosferatu, or as we call him Zanginius. He motioned for me to follow him. He had a grave expression on his face.” Hello Catherine” he greeted in his deep hypnotic voice. I greeted him back. He was so tall I had to look up. I studied his features. Zanginius stood at about 7 feet and 8 inches or so, his skin was translucent and shiny, like buffed marble. His head was bald and shaped like a melon, his ears were pointed and long. His eyes were yellow and he had dark circles under his eyes. All his teeth were sharp and pointed like fangs. He had long curved finger nails. Zanginius was very ugly and frightening, but he was also a great noble leader and he was kind and loving to his children.

Zanginius looked at me then. Oops! I forgot he could read minds. I glanced at him apologetically, but he didn’t acknowledge it, instead he motioned for me to sit. He was still for what seemed to me like an eternity, before he started to speak. “ Catherine, I have called you to me, tonight to let you know we will be going to war soon. “Zanginius said. My eyes widened. “ War?” I was confused. “ Yes war. You see Catherine the-” He cut himself off and sighed . “ I think I will tell you everything once Jenna is here.” he told me. My eyes brightened, “ Jenna? Jenna is coming here? How is she? Oh I ‘m dying to see her again? Is she mad at me? I-” Zanginius stopped me slightly amused. ”My dear Catherine, Jenna will be here any minute now. Have patience. She will answer all of your questions.” A moment later, as if on cue, Jenna walked in, followed by Julian. A new tension filled the air, so thick you could almost cut it with a knife. Jenna stood still, her back ramrod straight. I could see the conflicting emotions in her eyes. Finally she rushed forward, determination in every stride. “YOU!” she shouted angrily. Julian sighed. Zanginius didn’t move. I stood my ground as Jenna approached. “ How dare you do this to me!” her eyes gleamed red. She was right in front of me her hand outstretched, ready to slap me. I waited for the blow, but none came. I looked into her eyes and saw tears forming. “ Oh Catherine” she said softly, her face in her hands. I took her hands gently in mine. “ Hey, Jen. It’s okay. I ‘m so sorry! I was given this mission and I saw you and thought you were perfect. I-” Jenna interrupted me. ”It’s okay Cat, I understand, really. All is forgiven.” she smiled sincerely. I was so relieved. Zanginius cleared his throat. “ Now that all is forgotten and forgiven we really must move on.” He said seriously.

Julian nodded taking a seat at the edge of Zanginius’ sarcophagus. “ I was telling Catherine that we are at war.” he began speaking to Jenna. “ War with who?” asked Jenna her eyes as wide as mine had been. Zanginius continued “ With the Night Walkers.” I rolled my eyes “What’s the problem now?” I hissed. “ The problem is that they want to become day walkers.” I froze, not sure if I had heard correctly. “What?!” Jenna and I said at once. “ Yes my children, they want to be able to walk during the day and if that happens, chaos will be unleashed upon humanity, and we will all be exposed along the way.” Julian stared at the Nosferatu concern on his beautiful face. “ Bu- but how? How can they manage that? Is it even possible?” I asked and then I remembered. “ The Golden Chalice” I whispered and a wave of dizziness washed over me. Zanginius nodded grimly. Jenna had a quizzical expression on her face. “ Yes. The Golden Chalice. You see, Jenna, the largest coven of witches, the order of the Midnight Rose, have a chalice filled with a powerful elixir. It is so powerful in fact, that if used by the wrong hands, it will wreak havoc on the world itself. The elixir’s power is used to obtain one’s biggest desire. The witches use it in special ceremonies but use it only for good purposes, for example, When in dire need of something special, or some special emotion, such as love or happiness. It is even used for protection. The witches even call to the four elements through the special elixir.” Zanginius finished and looked at us expectantly. Julian closed his eyes “ Father, if the Night Walkers steal the Chalice then it will be the bloodiest battle we’ve ever had.”

” Zanginius nodded gravely. “ Very true that is.” he said. “ But that is not the only problem we face. The Night Walkers will not act alone. They have allied themselves with Baal and his demons.” If vampire’s could get any paler. Julian and I would have disappeared. “Demons? “ I said frantically. Julian put a hand up to calm me, Jenna just stared horrified. Zanginius confirmed it. Baal was the demon lord of the so called Chaotic Ones, the fiercest, most evil and dangerous beings from Hell itself. They had been another of the vampire’s enemies (Both Day and Night Walkers alike)- They had always wanted to be free from Hell and roam the earth, but of course we’d never let that happen. Night Walkers and Demons, can it get any worse? I rubbed my temple and leaned against one of the tunnel’s walls. Jenna was filled in quickly to stunned by it all to say a word.

 

Both the Night Walkers and the Demons wanted to cause chaos on humanity. If they were unleashed humanity was doomed. There was no way we, Day Walkers could allow this to happen at all. Never. “Why have you called us?” Jenna finally spoke up. Zanginius looked at her with affection, “Because I need your help.’ he simply said. Jenna couldn’t believe her ears, neither could I for that matter. “ Us?” I interceded. Zanginius sighed. ‘yes Catherine you both and of course Julian and Charles and every Day Walker alive.” he hesitated and Julian caught on quickly “ And the witches too.” He merely stated. Zanginius nodded “ Yes, Julian and the witches too.” Zanginius and Julian explained that Jenna had to receive intense training. “But I’ve already been trained. Jenna protested. “ yes in martial arts and hunting, but you need to learn how to shape shift, how to use certain weapons and you must learn how to morph into elements. You will also train with the witches of The order of The Midnight Rose and learn special spells and enchantments that you will use to your advantage.” I was elated to learn new things and I said so. “ Careful Catherine, this is not a game, we must be cautious.” Zanginius said in a serious voice “Tonight you will hunt and rest. Tomorrow we will begin the new training. ”And with that said, The great Nosferatu bid us good night and disappeared inside his sarcophagus.

 

JENNA:

Julian lead me through the dark forest . I was so glad that I had vampire vision or else I would be stumbling and falling constantly. Finally we reached a n underground tunnel.

We walked a little further and came to an entrance so dark even I had trouble seeing. Julian urged me forward until we were in what seemed like a long hallway. Everything grew visible suddenly and I could make out two silhouettes ahead. Julian glanced at me warily but said nothing. Before I could wonder what was wrong I saw her, Catherine. I was willing to make peace with her, but when I saw her sitting there I lost it. A blinding fury filled my senses and I was overwhelmed with resentment for a moment. I rushed forward to her. My hand outstretched, eyes red with rage. Then I saw her guilt ridden face, I saw the pain and how sorry she was, and my eyes filled with tears, I had forgiven her forever….

After Zanginius spoke to us about what was happening with the Night Walkers and Demons, after telling us about the Golden Chalice and the witches, we were sent to hunt and rest. The next day we started , what I called our battle training.
