Maria growled and the boy laughed.
"Oh you still mad about that little thing?" He laughed and took a step forward.
"YOU KILLED HIM!" She screeched through clenched teeth. He laughed again.
"So he was weak!" Her eyes narrowed.
"He was only twelve!" A small trickle of blood leaked from her right eye.
"Well then it was your fault either way!" That was when Maria snapped and launched herself forwards her hands outstretched. The boy dodged and laughed as she landed in a tangled heap. One of his friends came forwards and placed a foot pinning her to the ground. She tried with everything she had but she couldnt get up.
"I thought you were different but it seems as though your just like him" a smirk spread itself across his face as he took in her beast-like expression.
"ooh did I strike a nerve?" He taunted. Cassandra's knuckles had turned a bright white similar to her hair.
"leave her alone" Her voice just above a whisper. Everyone turned to look at her and the boy smiled as his eyes raked over her body.
"What you want darlin?" Jaran growled at the boys tone
"I said leave her alone!" Her voice showed no fear only anger. The boy smirked again as he stuffed his hands in his pockets.
"What you gonna do huh? I bet your as weak as she is" He kicked Maria in the stomach causing her to spit out a mouthful of blood. Cassandra narrowed her eyes. Her hands snapped forwards and strings shot out. On her hands were two metal gloves. On the left red stings and the right blue.
"Try me" Her voice threatening. He narrowed his eyes.
"Your bluffing" It was her turn to smirk
"Am I? care to prove it?" He took her challenge and raced forwards. Jaran was about to intervene but Leon stopped him.
"Look at her face its not the Cassandra we know" Jaran followed his instructions and then he saw it. In her eyes there was a evil glint. Cassandra flicked her wrist and threw a book into the air. A figure popped out and landed with the red strings attached. It was a young girl with blood red armor, blonde hair, scarlet eyes and a long lance with a shield attached. At the same time on the other side of the paper another girl appeared but this one was blue and had a long sword with a small shield on its other arm. The blue one knocked the boy back as the red one rammed into the person pinning Maria down.
"Like I said can you prove I was bluffing?" The boy stood there, opening and closing his mouth like a fish out of water. He stood his ground and gestured for his friends to come out of the shadows. One was another werewolf but female and the other made everyone stop and stare. IT was huge. Its body was larger than the average person so it was simple to say IT wasn't human. IT was hunched over. It's face concealed in shadow. IT lifted its head slowly. A blood shot eye stared back seeming to stare right through all of them but not through Cassandra. Everyone shook. Terror etched on their faces but Cassandra's smirk only grew.
"Wow what's this?" Her voice was taunting. The boy turned to look at her.
"This is my friend Titian and my sister Zoe, oh and how rude of me! my name is Kale" Cassandra tilted her head to the side.
"Interesting. Well my name is Cassandra I hope you remember it as I will make sure you dont forget it!" Kale took a step back. Shock written all over his face.
"Yeah well Titian will protect us!" At this the huge beast lifted its head along with a sword in its left hand. Cassandra studied the large humanoid and noticed that it seemed to be leaning on its left leg more then its right. She slowly moved her fingers and the blue puppet slowly moved closer to the giant. No-one seemed to notice as they were all looking at Titian as it raised its sword.
