The Huntress

When you die you expect to have a beautiful existence, and for most it is. But I am not most, I am the Huntress. I am the first woman warrior.


8. Meeting the leader

We headed down another path. One I did not notice before. It opened into a large chamber. The room was filled with... People? No. These beings were not people. The were beings of the night. They were Vampires. 

As we walked into the chamber, the vampires moved to form a path for us to walk to the back of the room. There we found a throne, and on this throne we found their queen. A queen that I had seen before.

"What have we here?" She said sarcastically. She walked closer to observe me. "A girl who should be dead, and her partner."

"You may have killed me once, but it will not happen again. Who are you? And why did you take Cleo?"

"Darling, so much fire in you. Very well, I will answer your questions... for now." She turned away and walked back to her throne. Over her shoulder she said, " I am Selene Nightwalker, and I needed the little girl, Cleo was it, for her power."

I was confused. Vampires had their own power. They weren’t able to take the power from others. Or least they weren't supposed to. “Why do you need her power? How did you get her power?” 

“She needs my power because she has none of her own,” I was astonished to hear the voice, and feel the power emanating behind me. I looked back and saw Cleo.

“Why are you here? I told you to stay where you were!” I was exhausted, but I now had to manage to get Cleo and Jason out safely.

“Queen Selene, if I may?” The voice came from behind the throne, it was one of her devoted servants. “They be no use to you. The girl is drained as it is. And Crystal is not a power you can use. Unlike her partner, her power will more than likely eat you. She is a Protector. A guardian.” I have no idea what he was talking about as I met his eyes.

I am Ryder. I will contact you and explain things to you. You just need to get out of here safely first. Please trust me.

The voice in my head was unmistakably Selenes servant. How he managed to communicate with me, I don’t know. He must have hidden his power from his queen.

“Fine, they can go. I have no use for them anyway,” she exclaimed. “Now leave.”

I am not sure I trust her. I mean she did kill me once, She could do it again.

Go. You have my word no harm will come to any of you. I don't know why but as I meet his eyes, I believe him and leave.
