Vanessa watched over the night, refusing again to take another for her dinner, the vampires around watching with interest but also disdain, once a vampires topped feeding they would rapidly become weaker and weaker till they perished, this was a good sign to everyone else, they would get to take a crack at becoming the new leader of the clan.
Vanessa was looking across the room with a bored expression, vampires enjoying themselves as she would blink her head, she would feel something deep inside her, stress and panic was flowing through her, she knew these emotions were not hers as she would slowly turn into a shadow, many other vampires would panic as she simply disappeared, a few wondering what had happened.
Vanessa would flow into the shadows, her body eventually landing in the under-Sanctuary, it was a place she had built during her rise to power as a sanctuary and a hiding place, she would watch from the shadows as she saw Darrien stumble out, slowly making his way towards the exit, she felt panic again as she saw his blood leaking, quickly entering into the back area, all of the stocks of slaves and prisoners were kept.
She was completely frozen, she saw her guard empaled onto spikes, the stonework forced up and into him in many places, almost like a strange artwork, she slowly moved forward as she examined him, it looked like he had activated the defences as well but still died.
"Who is he, able to destroy my guard and then do this...wait"
She would look around and feel more panic, the entire room was empty, every cell was empty with not a single person, each persons cage was empty.
"There were almost three thousand people in here, how can he just..."
She would blush gently as she felt her own feeling rising, his blood just smelled too good, his abilities appeared to be more than good and she felt something in her heart.
"I will become yours or you will become mine. One way I will get that lovely blood"
She would slowly lick her lips, moving over to the spot near the dead vampire, seeing blood dripping from one of the spikes.
"This is not his blood, the smell... It's Darriens blood!"
She would move forward rapidly and break the spike, pulling the blood into her mouth as she drank, her face blushing as her body felt like it was getting electrocuted, pleasure coursing through her veins as she would cry out in pleasure.
She would feel her body quaking as she fell to the ground, her entire mind relaxing as she felt her body quaking as her own magical abilities expanded, she had been stuck at the pre-ancient stage for sometime, this tasting had pushed her past that limit and now she was sitting in the ancient stage, her mouth moving quickly as she smiled, fangs poking out.
She would stand quickly and move towards the door, her body passing next to the mirror as she stopped and looked into it, feeling more fear but pleasure as she looked into it.
"I can see myself, normally shadow magic does not allow me to view the mirror as it hides my form..." She almost felt like crying, she needed to do everything she could to take Darrien or submit to him, she could feel her body quaking as she noticed something in her eyes.
"They are not red, they turned back to blue..."
She touched her cheeks, she looked human again, no longer did her fangs poke out and her own eyes looked normal, she even felt stated for the first time, her eternal blood hunger was not pressing into her any more.
She had decided now that she could not capture that man, she had attempted to control his mind many times in the meetings, it all fell flat.
"I need to bow before him, hope that the girl next to him has not taken his heart. I will make him mine.. Oh my, I hope he does not mind"
She looked nearly twenty years older than him, but in the battle for someone's attention the age factor could not be ignored, she would smile gently again.
"Age or not, I will claim his heart as my own"
She would move upstairs, seeing that the male had left with Drax, she knew that she would have to fix that problem later, she had taken Drax's child at the orders of the vampire queen who ruled from the demonic side. She was thinking what was best for her own future. This man had the ability to make her stronger and even make her daily existence less of a pain.
Anyone would take that instead of suffering under the rule of someone from afar.
She would enter back into the club, some vampires surprised, almost stunned at her appearance as she would walk back towards her throne thinking.
"Vanessa, I challenge you to a dual, The clan is better off without you in it. Weakness is not good for the vampires here!"
Vanessa would blink as she turned and looked to the male, he was her younger brother, almost five years difference, she could push him into oblivion with ease and he always seemed to be the upstart.
"Sure, I accept!"
She was thinking of killing him to set the example that was needed, though her smile would grow, she had a brilliant plan and what was best to get his attention other than to forsake all her so-called family, though in the end vampires felt little towards others from the same clan, they always tended to stab each other in the back and this was no different.
"Get ready Vanessa, I will destroy you... Wait, what?"
He seemed surprised as Vanessa grabbed a bag from behind her chair, it was her travelling bag with all her documents.
"What are you doing!"
She blinked before looking back at him.
"I surrender, you are now the ruler of the clan. I have better things to do than manage a bunch of idiots without a clue of power"
She smiled brightly as she started to walk off, the others around them confused at her behaviour, what had changed in the past several hours, she used to be the most powerful and commanding woman here.
"I'm the leader! Hah, excellent. I want you to go..."
He looked around before noticing Vanessa had already left, well it was best for him if she left, she was the only real challenge.
Vanessa had left rapidly, another weaker vampire had taken her place, one vampire at the back sighed, his greying hair indicating his age. "Her eyes had turned blue, looked younger and even seemed more powerful. Something has happened and shes decided to abandon us for her own greed."
He would smile, he was one of the few people here to realize this fact, the rest simply were sheep.
