    Monsters lie here. . .

    Post  The Circus Master on Thu May 24, 2012 12:36 pm

    How should. . . How should I feel?
    Monsters lie here, looking through the window?
    H-how should. . . How should I feel, Creatures die here. . . I look through the window.
    Monster.
    Looking through the window. . .
    Monster. . .
    Monster. . .
    Monster. . .
    Love me. . Love me. . .

    ~{*}~


    The Circus Master woke with a start. Green eyes wide as she glanced around her personal apartment, eyes well adjusted to the dark.

    Monster. . .
    How should I feel?

    Everything seemed in place, the night silent, steady snow falling in the night. She heaved a sigh of relief.
    "Just nightmares again, Aya. Just that, da. . ."
    Her moment of peace didn't last long. . . A faint sound was heard from out her window.

    Creatures lie here. . .
    Looking through the window. . .

    L-Love me! Love me!

    There was a swift shape that passed by. Curiousity over took the young leader and she slid from her bed to her closet. Grabing her trench coat and a pair of boots. She slid out her door, but knew she couldn't just leave without waking The Commander. . .
    He would never approve of her chasing after suspicous noises. .
    She took a breath, her form becoming weightless as she changed from 'human' into a shadow and slipped easily through the walls and out into the night. She spotted the shadow of the mystery creature just off in the out skirts of The Circus.
    The uncontrolable urge to chase the beast took over her and she broke into an easy run.

    Monster. . .
    Looking through the window . .
    How should I feel?

    She chased it. Never quite being able to tell what exactly it was until it brought her to a clearing.
    She stopped, locking eyes with the monster.
    She gasped aloud, but it was too late. . .

    Looking through the window. . .

    ~{*}~

    The next morning, The Commander strode up to The Circus Master's door. Knocking gently.
    "Milady? It isss already noon. . . Isss everything alright?"

    No answer. .

    Concerned, he opened her door.
    "Aya?!"

    Ice had to see The Circus Master. She had awoken with a start the night before with the worst feeling in the world, a foreboding feeling; a sign of danger.

    The feeling wouldn't even let her sleep, so she knew she must go and tell The Circus Master. She found The Commander outside The Circus Master's room with a panicked look on his face, something she thought she'd never see.

    "Commander," Ice asked concerned., "is everything all right?"

    The Commander glanced over at her, shaking his head.

    "No Ice. I do not think it iss. . ." The snake-man stepped into The Circus Master's chambers.
    Her closet was thrown open, the blankets of her bed spilled on the floor. . .
    Her weapons still against her chair.

    "Ssshe iss jusst gone. . ."

    Shadow walked up, she looked around The Circus Master's room. Muttering something under her breath, she turned into her Shadow form.

    "I can sense her trail. . .I'll go after her. . .to see if everything is ok. . ."

    Shadow took off through the wall, following the dark purple trail left behind. Did the Circus Master know she could sense it? She shook it off, she kept running.

    Ice bit her lip. The foreboding feeling gave way into fear.
    "Just gone?" Ice asked. The Commander nodded. "Oh no..." Ice whispered. "I'm too late. The feeling was about her. But she couldn't have just disappeared."
    She paused then spoke up, "What do we do?"

    The Commander glanced to where ShadowStep had gone off before looking back to Ice.

    "We find her, of courssse. . . And make anything that may have harmed her pay. ."

    ~{*}~

    The Circus Master's eyes fluttered, she winced.
    Why did she have to wake up? Just being consioucs hurt at the moment. 'I don't know what the Hades it did to me. . ' she though.
    'but it will pay dearly. . .'
    Glancing out at the slim amount of light provided she guessed it was late in the day.
    'Skive. . . Lynnick will have awoken by now. .'

    She cried out as the creater bit down into her shoulder and released a sick laugh.
    Alright, maybe it would be better if Lynnick was up. .

    "Agreed," Ice replied. "Since Shadowstep is tracking her using her trail, she may get to her before we do. I'm going to go get my weapons, but I'll meet you in the square." Without giving The Commander a chance to speak, she left.

    Entering her tent, she found her Claymore sword and the magic dagger. They both could be very useful. She strapped them on, grabbed her coat, and went to meet The Commander in the square. There were a few others there as well.

    The Commander, Vate, Celestial, Stratos, and Mirage all stood waiting.
    Each was equiped with their favored weapon, expressions determind.

    "There iss no time to losse." The Commander hissed.
    "Let'sss go."

    ~{*}~

    The horrid beat leered over the Circus Master, smirking.

    "And what do you fear, little leader? Where are your ghost? I know you've killed. . "
    The Circus Master glared back at it, raising her chin defiantly. "I have made peace with them all. . "
    The creature laughed bitterly, roughly seizing her chin in his taloned hand. "Then what else do you fear? What causes you distrust? Perhpas the girl with a dark afe's blood? Or even your so loyal Commander? Any and all could turn against you. What scares you?"
    Creature die here. . .
    Creatures die here. . .

    ". . ." she didn't answer, just spit at the beast face. Scowling.

    The group started towards the forest.
    Ice fell in line with Vate.

    "Morning," she said.

    "Oh, hello Ice," Vate replied. He seemed rather preoccupied.

    "For once I see you in the morning and I'm not in the infirmary," Ice replied with a slight smile.

    Vate smiled softly back. "It would a lovely chnage of pace!" he agreed.
    "If only we weren't here under such dark reasons."

    His ears drooped. "I pray Milday Master is alright. . ."
    Ice was about to respond when Stratos cried out.

    "Commander! I found her coat. . . "

    The Commander rushed over to him to look at the garment.
    There was no way to see it as a good sign, the garment was torn and blood stained in a few areas.
    One sleeve completely torn away.

    Ice shivered, "That... isn't good."

    "No," The Commander replied. "It isssn't."
    The group continued onward, searching for more clues.

    Ice said a little prayer then and there. "Dear God, please help Milady Master to be okay," she whispered, falling back in line with Vate.

    Even with the prayer, she felt unsure. But there was a little spark of hope in her heart.

    Meanwhile, Shadow had already seen the coat and was tracking the Dark Purple glow, she saw the Circus Master's blood every now and then.

    "She's wounded. . .I have to find her. . .I have to tell the others. . ."

    Shadow continued onward, she had to do everything in her power to help the perosn whom gave her and her little brother a home, something to hope for. . .

    Dawn had her arrow aimed and was read to let it fly when she heard someone, or something walking. It sounded like group, but she wasn't quite sure she knew they were a few Kilometers off and that they, whoever they are were most likely not aware of her yet. She glanced longingly at the dear but put relaxed her arrow a little and walked quietly towards the sounds.

    >~~~~~~~~~~<


    Katana could hear them well enough to know it was her..her friends. The word felt awkward in her head but she shook herself free of the thought and hurried to join them, "What's going on?" Almost everyone looked distressed and worried about something.

    Ice was the first to answer. "Milady Master is missing!" she said, staying close to Vate.

    "Missing?" asked Dawn.

    The Commander nodded, and so did the rest of the group.

    Dawn was shocked, gone?..how could she just be gone, missing.. "I've been out hunting sense sunrise and there hasn't been a disturbance in nature out of the ordinary..." she paused a moment, "Not until you guys came in, and a little before that there was someone in the shadows..but I figured it was just Shadow. So I think it was before dawn that she disappeared..unless she up and left calmly on her own..then it may have been her just before you guys came."

    One thing she loved from her mother was her connection to the nature. While water was her strong point she could still do basics with any nature based thing.

    The Commander looked down.
    "Ssshe did not leave calmly, that isss known." Dawn watched him reach back and take a garment from Vate.
    It was The Circus Master's coat. Torn and bloodied.

    ~{*}~

    "You are calling this tourture?" The Circus Master spat. "I grew up, alone, on the slums of Russia! This is merely childish!"
    Even as she said it, she knew it was only half true. She had lost quite a bit of blood from the creature's abuse,
    not enough to kill her any time soon. But still alot.

    The Monster chuckled.
    "Just wait, little leader. Once your friends arrive, the real fun begins. But for know. . . Let's find your fear. . ."

    "I told you there was none."

    "Fine. . . Then let us relive your nightmare."
    The Circus Master's eyes widened, she knew what was coming.
    "N-nyet!"
    The beast gripped her face harshly, talons digging into her fair face.
    Her mind grew foggy for a moment, and then she flashed back.

    ~

    Snow fell heavily, as always, on the streets of Moscow.
    Among the busy, silent Russian citizens was a young couple with their daughter.
    The mother a woman with braided black hair, the father a broad man of blond, the daughter a raven head like her mother.
    They all appeared to have seen hardships, espeacially the young girl who's clothes loosely fit her malnurished form.
    She gripped her Father's hand, the man glanced around nervously before picking up his daughter.
    "Aya, my sunflower. What do you do if something ever happens to papa and mama?"
    "I run, Papa. I run to--" The little one didn't get to finish. There was a cracking sound, and the young mother cried out. Clutching her side, she drew a gun from her coat.

    "M-Mama?! Papa?!"
    The father set his daughter down, drawing out a weapon of his own.
    "They have found us Anastsia. . ."
    "I know. . "
    "Mama? Papa!"

    "Run, Sunflower. Run and never look back. Mama loves you. . ."
    ((The flash back will continue~.)

    ~

    "Nyet. . . STOP!" The Circus Master screamed, still locked in the flashback.
    She knew how this vision ended.
    She knew the girls fate.
    Her fate.

    "NYET!!"

    ~{*}~

    Vate's cat-ears perked up slightly.
    "Milady?" he whispered in confusion.

    Shadow heard the screams from far off, "The Circus Master . . .she is close, there is no possible way that she could. . . .Kernal Seeds!!!!" Shadow had looked down, Snake Vines were climbing their way up her legs, pulling her down. She clenched her fists then remembered, and let her body go limp. Soon she went through the Snake Vines and was. . .in a tunnel? She heard th Circus Master scream again, blending into the shadow's in-case someone was there, she started running in the direction of her scream.

    "What is it Vate?" Ice asked.

    "I-I thought I heard her," he replied.

    "Commander," Ice said catching his attention.

    "What isss it?" The Commander asked.

    "Vate," she answered. "He thought he heard her."

    The Commander nodded quickly. "Where?!"

    The cat boy tipped his head, ears twitching.
    ". . .North. . ."

    ~{*}~

    The beast smiled with pleasure, watching The Circus Master scream and cry out. . . Oh, if only it could watch her pain!

    ~
    ((Returning to teh flashback~!))

    "N-nyet!! Let go of Mama!!" A very small, terrified Aya screamed.
    The Russian officer had her mother pinned against the wall of a shop, her father lay on the ground. Unmoving.
    The small girl stood trembeling. Terror, Rage, Pain. . . That was all she felt. She had no clue this would be the first of many times she would feel it.
    "Little girl," he called out. "Please stand back. Your parents are under arrest as charged criminals. You will be transported to an orphange immediately."

    "Aya. . " her mother choked. "Run. . "
    "N-nyet. . . Nyet. . . Nyet! Y-you can't take them! You can not take them away f-from me!!"
    The shadowlings form began to be come less solid, less human.
    A humanoid black fog, a barely disticnt shape.
    A shadow.

    The officer took a step back, gawking at what had been a little girl just seconds before.
    "W-what the he--!"
    He didn't finish the rest as the horrifing shadow charged him, wispy claws that were painfully solid tearing across his chest. He screamed, drawing renewed attention from the citizens but it would be too late.
    He was already dead.
    The girl was already moving on to the next officer. . .

    Shadow heard the master's cries. She was so close to shouting but she couldn't. . something was there. . .something. . .she retraced her steps back to the Snake Vines. She looked around, finding a limb. . .covered in blood. She shivered as she picked it up. she stuck it through the vines. She signeled to the others where she was. That they should go down, then she turned around and scouted out the area. . .suddenly a creak behind her, she turned as fast as possible. Not fast enough. She was grabbed and pulled in by something.

    She screamed. She kicked, fought, she tried everything. Nothing. . .

    ~{*}~

    Vate's ear's flicked. "Shadow!" He yelped chargeing after her scream.

    The Commander looked at Vate and quickly followed, "If sssshe'sss there the Masssster mussst be to!" Ice was not far behind. They all heard Shadow, they were close.

    They charged a top the area the scream were coming from.

    "Dawn, is there anything here?" Ice quickly asked.

    "A-a tunnel," Dawn stuttered, wondering why Ice was asking her.

    Ice tested the ground with her foot. Sure enough, it felt hollow.
    "There has to be an opening somewhere," she muttered.

    Dawn took a deep breath and tuned out the other people. Time seemed to slow down for her as she used her sensory to follow th tunnel to it's entrance. Her eyes opened, "It's that way." she pointed northeastern

    The Circus Master tore herself from the flashback. Her form trembeling.
    "So much blood," she whimpered. "So, so much blood. . . "

    The beast chuckled softly. "Adorable," he purred. "But guess what? We have a little friend for you. . ."
    A limp form slammed up against the wall with a sickening crack.
    "W-ha? NYET!"

    ShadowStep lay, unmoving. Her dark form flickering.

    The Circus Master watched as Shadow slowly awoke, finding herself in chains, they didn't know how badly wounded she was, just that her form was flickering, there was a puddle beneath her, and that she was woken from being slapped by the monster. Shadow leaned her head to look at The Circu Master whom kept shouting Nyet at the monster.

    Smileing she stated, "I. . .I found you. . .it's. . .ok now. . ." she sounded weakened but strong. The monster looked disspleased.

    "Oh so strong are we?"

    Shadow leaned her head back to look at the monster. "Nothing I have to say to you. My life was. . .has been a nightmare till I came here. . .Nothing you say or do to me Will Ever Change that." She spat on him just to finish.
