You’re in trouble.

The police are on their way, and you’re standing practically naked in an epicenter of carnage and horror, covered in blood. Smoke rises from burning wreckage around you.

The middle of this eight-plus car pileup on the freeway is not the place to be when the cops show up. Well. When more cops show up. The first two aren’t much of a problem anymore. You shiver at the thought and try to keep it from your mind. For now, the thing that demands your utmost attention is getting away from where you are.

If we do the former it would be smart to take out the dashboard cam, but I don't think it's something Sierra would think about in the current situation.

You stop yourself before you head to the edge of the elevated highway and leap off – you have to play this cool. It won’t do you any good to run if they have footage of you in the cruiser you wrecked. Just cause it’s on fire doesn’t mean the dash cam isn’t still rolling.

So you head that way, your footing damn unsteady. You feel like there must be rubble or something, since your feet aren’t working like they should be. Instead of your feet, though, you see claws. Like. Your feet are kind of elongated and weird, black and sharp in the same way your claws – your hands – are. The same ragged, blackish flesh creeps up your shins just as it does your forearms.

Your way of walking doesn’t really mesh with the way your feet work anymore, so you have to kind of stay more on the balls of your feel while moving. It’s weird, but you don’t really care right now.

The smell of burnt flesh. The destruction. It’s surreal. You feel like you’re in one of your worse dreams, and you really, really hope you’ll just wake up any second. (-1 Sanity: 89/100)

it certainly doesn’t seem real when you scoot into the fiery interior of the police cruiser. You feel the warmth of the flames wafting over your skin as you reach out for the half-melted dash cam and break it open with your flaws. With a flare of your own power, you incinerate the remains, melting through circuitry and plastic until the remnants are unrecognizable. (-1 PP: 6/26)

>> No.33459227

You hear the chopper getting closer. Man, you hoped you’d have more time. You hop out of the burning wreck and hoof it to the edge of the highway. A bright star of light shines from above and behind you, and for an instant everything’s illuminated, just before you leap over the edge, and your stomach leaps into your throat in freefall.

But in your haste, you didn’t check what you were jumping down at. Right below you there’s a street light. Slowing yourself down with shadows doesn’t work when there aren’t any shadows to soften your fall. And you are falling. Crap.

You grab at the darkness, and it tears like a curtain under your claws, before suddenly giving out from your fingertips into an empty expanse of orange light. (-5 PP: 1/26) You flail hopelessly and let out a chocked cry before you slam into the pavement. (-9 HP: 11/26)

It takes you a second to remember what’s happening, and you’re not sure you have it all right when you. You’re kind of splayed out on the ground, and one look at your leg says you’re not doing so hot. A sharp piece of something protrudes from the side of your shin, red and kind of glistening. The scent of your blood fills the air. And you still hear that chopper overhead – luckily you’re more out of sight than you were, but your current situation is hardly better.

Adrenaline or something is keeping the pain from your mind for the moment. So long as you don’t think about it, maybe it won’t hurt. Right now it just feels kind of numb, though you can still move around. You guess you’re fortunate, or something. Anyway, you’re on an incredibly seedy looking street, for the moment devoid of life, though you could be missing something.

You’re in front of an empty lot, though you see some apartment looking buildings nearby, the windows dark. It’s still early morning, you guess, but you don’t trust yourself with the timing right now. Down the street it looks like there’s some 24 hour store. Somebody’s definitely there – somebody that could help you. You could use somebody’s help, but you don’t want anyone to see you right now, so close to all the mess up on the overpass.

Oh god. What did you? You can't remember anything but fire and blood. (-2 Sanity: 87/100)

You put the questions out of your mind. You must focus, and what better to focus on than your broken leg? You don’t know anything really about first aid, but you are pretty sure your bones shouldn’t be sticking out like that.

You grab your foot with one hand, then place your other on the bone. You pause and take a deep, shuddering breath. What you’re about to do is probably going to hurt a lot. Like. A whole lot. So if you’re really going to go through with it, you’ll need to do it in one go, else you’ll just lose your resolve.

Best to just get it over with. You give your leg a solid jerk, and shove the bone back into your flesh.

Worse pain you have never known. You scream through clenched teeth, your face contorting into an expression of pure agony. And then it’s over.

You feel cold and shaky, and cool sweat drips from your brow, mingled with blood. Okay, you… you can work with this. It’s good. You’re good. You’re okay.

You just have to fix how you look. You can’t do that really without a mirror, but you can at least put the glamor back over your horns and tail, and reform your claws into fingers. Your feet are a different story, but you find they distort back into their original shape without undo effort. You get your skin to go back to almost normal levels, though you can’t get it much better than gray with dark veins.

You manage to get to your feet – or foot, with a heavy limp – and get out of the streetlight. Your leg is bleeding a lot, as are other wounds you can’t see, but it’s what it is. You just… you need to get out of sight, for a second. Just be somewhere not where you are. Somewhere dark and alone, where no one will ever find you, ever again.

You don’t have many options, but you head into the empty lot, toward some construction supplies, coated in graffiti. Every step really, really hurts. Like, really hurts a lot. You probably should be crawling. But you also probably shouldn’t be on the side of the street like you are right now. You probably shouldn’t be here at all.

You eventually make it to the heavy concrete piping and the unoccupied excavator and stuff and sit down with your back against a pile of pallets, covered with a blue tarp. It’s not a comfortable place to sit. There’s like, weeds and bristly pieces of grass sticking out of the dirt, but there’s nowhere else for you. At least you’re facing a blank brick wall, with no windows, so that takes out one direction from which you need to be careful. The wood fencing that runs briefly along the road blocks your view of the street, and the street’s view of you.

You can hear the helicopter flying overhead, but you’re out of sight and hopefully out of mind. Maybe they didn’t see you drop over the edge. Maybe you can just… stay here until… until you’re ready to go somewhere else.

It’s cold, so you draw your knees up to yourself the best you can, though your gimped leg isn’t really cooperating, and you’re in no position to force the issue.

This is bad. This is really, really bad. You can smell people’s blood on you. You don’t recognize whose it is. It’s all over you, everywhere. You can taste it. You want more. But you also don’t want to want it at all. You wish it was getting darker, and not lighter, so you wouldn’t have to notice it’s dark shades in the half-light.

You swear, the sight of it almost makes it so you can remember screaming, even though you don’t remember anything else. (-1 Sanity: 86/100)

You can feel eyes on you. Whose eyes, you don’t know, but you do know you need somewhere better to hide. There’s a flash of light as the helicopter spotlight hovers over your hiding spot, though it stays there just for a second before glancing away someplace else. You look up and reexamine your surroundings. Ahead of you, not too far over open terrain, is more construction work, though the skeletal building will afford some place for you to be.

It’s a force of will to stand, but you do. You can fret and frown later. Now’s just about the basics. Getting out of sight and staying warm. It’s been cold, but not that cold – maybe it’s just because you don’t run around naked in the middle of the night all that often.

You stagger forward, wincing as you put on the speed. Your speed is at best a hobble, but you can’t get spotted by the helicopter. You can’t outrun anybody right now. The best speed you can make is a pained shuffle, so shuffle you do until you pass into the bare boned structure. You bleed a lot on the way – your leg’s a mess. You don’t think moving is on the top tier of smart decisions, right now. (-1 HP: 10/26)

Above the smell of blood, the construction site smells like rust and concrete, which makes sense, because there’s bags of cement and gravel and piles of rebar everywhere. At least there’s a roof over your head now, which should keep the searchlight at bay.

>> No.33460957

>>33460927

You forge deeper into the building, struggling to keep quiet. You can’t stop making pathetic, pained noises as you go, though. Every time you put weight on your leg, the pain startles you. It’s like, a different kind of pain every time. It’s awful.

You mean to go up the stairs or something, but the sight of the steps causes you physical pain right now. But moving forward, you find there’s a nice alcove under the stairs, as well as like, a workbench and toolbox and stuff, partially covered by another blue tarp. You’ve never really thought much about blue tarps before, but now it clicks that this is probably the best thing right now.

You get over ambitious stumble into the whole setup, knocking the toolbox off the table and onto the ground. There’s a horribly loud jangle of metal before the quiet resumes. Man, you didn’t mean to go that fast. The damage is done, though. Anyway, you yank the tarp off and pull it with you under the shadow of the staircase. Its sharp, plastic texture is like a cotton blanket to you as you cram yourself into the corner. You wrap it about you, covering yourself and giving you some kind of insulation against the night air.

>> No.33460983

>>33460957

Yeah. This’ll work for now, probably.. You close your eyes and bury your face in your knees, tightening the makeshift blanket about yourself, and causing it to crinkle loudly in the quiet. You’re good. Everything’s under control. Just you in… some construction site, somewhere, with your tarp. Yep. Everything’s just fine.

You sniff suddenly, despite yourself. Your breathing is ragged and almost uncontrollable, and you still feel cold. The tarp helps, though, kind of.

It's not our fault. Meckor trying to kill us is. But our reactions to stress are not normal, and there may be more going on with us that demons like the Crowthers might know about.

The Hallows are great people for helping us understand what we are, but most of their knowledge about demons is, by necessity, how to fight them.

The Crowthers are our best bet for knowing more about our problems.

I'm hoping he's a pragmatic sort of good. Yes, we killed 20 people, but as a necessary part of taking out a dangerous threat, and if calmed down can be used to save more people future.

And, if he hunts us down, we could do even more damage due to panic and might even seriously injure or kill one of them.

>>33461534
Honestly, that's a terrible comparison.

Our problem with Meckor was that he has serious defenses, and we hadn't gotten anything to bypass defenses. Issac's crossbow pretty much ignores protection, so if he can hit it he can hurt/kill it. He's more specialized than we are.

But, we actually stand a good chance of taking him in a fight, especially if we're in a favorable environment. We're pretty much an ambush predator, a dark forest would be perfect for us, he can't see, we can see, smell, and hear, trees give us cover, we can blind him with fire, use shadows against him, wear him down by stealling PP. If he hit us it will hurt, it'll probably ignore Child of Darkness, but if we stack the odds in our favor he'll have a hard time hitting us.

The odds get even better if have Reeber and Zelathis with us, but those are currently in the hands of the Hallows.

We probably fled, Hipster and Bug Bitch probably skedaddled after that, they weren't in a good position, but occupied the Hallows enough for us to get some distance.

What are you even doing here? You’re not fixing any problems, you’re just hiding from them. You’ve got to get up and do stuff.

In your sudden burst of resolve, you gather your tarp and stand up. Standing makes you go blind with pain, so you sit back down, feeling drained. You feel kind of weaker than you did a while ago. Moving’s not working out so hot. (-1 HP: 9/26)

Things will make sense later, you convince yourself. If you just, you know, kind of close your eyes and think about all the stuff you need to do, you’ll figure out a way to do it without walking. You just… need a phone. And clothes. And a shower. Yeah….

A lot of thoughts run through your mind. Like how you should get out of here. But you know you’re not going anywhere fast, so that option’s off the table. Your best chance is to be quiet and keep a level head. The dog’s going to find you, you’ve left your blood all over your path here. Likely it’s leading somebody along. Not many stray dogs around here. And if anybody finds you, your best chance is to just pretend to be one of the victims. No way they’d think some girl did any of what you did.

Unless they knew, somehow.

The dog gets nearer, and you stay quiet, keeping your shroud around yourself. You hear the sound of boots on concrete after that of the dog. You see a flashlight’s glow, and the rapidly shifting shadow of a running animal. You pull your covering up over your shoulders, as best you can.

Then a German Shepard runs around the edge of the stairs and prances about in place, making whining sounds at you, before running in to lick your face.

>> No.33462609

You look in confusion at the animal attempting to put its tongue on every square inch of your face. “Reebs?” you croak, unable to summon the strength necessary to keep him at bay. You're so surprised you don't even know what your reaction should be, so you kind of don't react at all.

A figure slides to a halt behind the animal and shines his light in your face, briefly. He has a wide, solid shape to him, and his white hair seems almost luminescent in the darkness. “Thank the Lord,” says Isaac, flicking off his flashlight and letting the blanket of darkness return. “Are you hurt? Can you walk?”

The suddenness of his speech startles you. “I uh… kind of broke my leg, a little,” you answer, sniffing into Reeber’s neck.

Isaac crouches beside you and pulls out a little penlight thing. “Let’s see it,” he says, pushing the tarp out of the way. He looks at your leg for like, one second. In the light you can see everything pretty much from the knee down is covered in blood. Isaac then turns off the light. “You’re not walking out of here,” he says, taking off a small black backpack that’s been stuffed to the limit.

He produces a big flannel blanket from the pack, which mostly empties the thing, and throws it around you, giving you a second to switch from the tarp to the superior, if itchy, plaid blanket. Once you’re wrapped in the blanket, Isaac tosses the tarp aside and pulls out a little white box from his bag, then pulls a littler white roll of gauze from within the box. “I’m just going to staunch the bleeding for now,” he informs you. Then he swiftly sets to wrapping the wound on your leg. Abruptly, he tears it off from the roll and then tears the strip down the middle, so that he can tie it off.

You frown, then, as he finishes up and starts replacing things in his bag, your breathing ragged. “How’s Vik’s car?” you ask between shaky breaths.

>> No.33463153

>>33463138
“We’ll buy her a new car,” Isaac replies. Then he kind of helps you get out of your corner, though he has to coax you off of Reeber first. He gets on your bad side and tries to support you, but you kind of trip and he catches you. And then before you get what’s going on, he gets an arm under your knees and one at your back and just lifts you up off the ground, and starts walking off, carrying you in his arms like a kid or something.

Reeber runs ahead and waits for Isaac to catch up before he shoots ahead again and waits some more.

As he goes, you start crying again. You’d probably hate this if you weren’t so damned tired. All you can do is cry and stuff. You keep your eyes shut. So many people. You can smell them on you. The death. “S-sorry,” you sob into Isaac’s chest, tightening the blanket about your body. “I’m sorry.”

Isaac’s reply is barely audible. “I know,” he says. "I'm sorry too."

Yes.

Meckor could have killed thousands of people, if not orders of magnitude more. If his plan went off huge amounts of the nations demonhunting resources would have to be diverted to San Francisco to contain the damage leaving the rest of the country vulnerable.

Both moles were already outed, and either dead or pretty damn close to it. We didn't know whether they had an additional landwell to use or not.

Yeah, we killed people, I'm guessing a couple dozen, and our sanity is in question, but that's manageable fallout rather than an local apocalypse. And maybe it would've still worked out if we took the other option, but we had no way of knowing that. But we made the decision we thought was right at the time, and well, shit happens.

As for becoming a monster, kinda, but all of our current condition monitors can be managed, Bloodlust will probably be one of the easiest to manage once we get past the awkward part of politely asking our friends/allies if we can suck their blood.

Possessives on words ending in spite work the same way. It's boss's, not boss'. What works differently is the plural, which would be bosses, and the plural possessive, which actually is bosses', as normal.

I apologize in advance if I came across as condescending. I'm just hoping you'll be pleased about knowing how to do that kind of possessive in English in the future.

There's also that video of Sierra in demon form having an amazing dance battle with Draco. Imagine if that suddenly got a million hits on YouTube.

'Spite' was an autocorrect typo, by the was. That should read simply 's.'
