Holly listened carefully, she could just hear her father and godfather's voices. Avril was on the bed, reading, her head snapped up when Holly moved closer to the stairs. "What are you doing Holly, get away from there!"
"Shh, I want to hear what all the commotion's about".
Avril joined her, "I have no clue why this is important to you".
Natalie came out of the bathroom, tying her brown hair up into a ponytail. "Hey guys, mind if I join in?"
"No, we don't mind, out godfather's down there, something's happened with his kids".
"Is that so , what happened?"
"I heard dad say that the kids were kidnapped or something".
The girls waited until the two adults were done, "hey by any chance do you guys have any of the kids phone number?"
"No, I didn't bother to put in a contact, I never knew this would happen".
The girls got back onto their beds when they heard footsteps heading up the stairs, their father appeared, "what happened dad, is uncle Peirce okay?"
"Well, he's trying to keep calm about everything, but since he's alone, it's pretty hard, I'm surprised that Inglewood hasn't talked to him about his children".
Avril frowned, "Inglewood, that man, oh I hate him, he's always getting into other people's business!" Gale smirked at her, "well it's his job to, to make sure everything is perfect".
Baloc opened his eyes, he had no clue where he was, all he could remember was that stranger popping out of nowhere. He had to cover for Golong, who knows what would've happened to him, now he wondered to himself, what would happen to him. "I'm glad you're awake young one", a raspy voice spoke, Baloc jumped up, "who are you, I want to go home!" the voice laughed, "I'm afraid we cannot do that". A figure appeared a few feet away from him, it was the same man from before, "I want you to come closer", he heard the man say, Baloc didn't move. Again the man spoke, "if you want to live, you better move". Baloc slowly made his way to the man, unaware on what he was going to do. The man raised his hand, which held a knife, Baloc screamed and shut his eyes, he didn't feel anything. There was a slicing sound, he opened his eyes to see the man slicing his wrist, "here drink my blood".
"What, I'm not drinking you're blood!"
"Do so now, or I'll kill you!"
"What will happen if I drink your blood!?"
"A spell will be cast upon your family, keeping them safe from harm, no child of mine can kill them, but it actually it seals a deal between you and me".
"You are to serve me no matter what, and you're family will be safe, as long as you listen to me".
Baloc examined the man's wrist, "okay, I'll drink the blood".
