Zack slowly walked back sitting down as he could feel Kade rolling around laughing as he sat up finally telling Zack that thier introduction won't be as bad as thier meeting afterall Shaleen actually had a heart in her demonic body where ever it may be. Kade decided it was time to rest as he was still drained going to the back of Zack's mind the demon just seemed to fade away.

Zack picked up one of the waters and used it to start cleaning himself up a little his hands and face with the blood gone he was a mess small cuts scattered across him and a nice healthy burn mark on one of his forearms...He took off the coat folding it he set it on the floor sitting in his black shirt and knife harness, half the knives were missing. finshed cleaning off his skin he picked up his portion of the rabbit....more demons was it a good thing or bad thing he wondered.

Sin sat there eating, watching Zack as he cleaned up. She noticed that he hadn't come in when she'd yelled for him in a panic upon first learning about Shaleen and now he was sitting there, cleaning himself some and eating. She was hurt and confused at the same time, having thought that he would have asked her what was wrong, if not coming in when she'd yelled. She knew that Kade had probably let him in on what was going on and still nothing from Zack. She looked away from him, finished eating her 'rabbit' and stood up. Kaelan watched her go, having an idea on what was bothering her but leaving it for her to work out with Zack. Shaleen was telling her to stay out of it.....that the last she wanted to do was get involved in a lover's quarrel, if that's where this was going. So, she kept eating.

Sin walked over to the entrance of the cave, thinking about everything that had just happened. Nothing could happen slowly over a period of time.....no, it all had to come crashing down at once. Finding Zack, fighting Kaelan for him, memories trying to surface, only to find out that Kaelan was her baby sister and both were infected with a demon who was related to Kade. And Zack was offering no comfort whatsoever. Her head was spinning as her anger began to take hold, only to be spurred by Shaleen who, being inside of Sin's head, had heard her thoughts.

~I AM NOT AN INFECTION, YOU TWIT!!!! IF IT WASN'T FOR ME YOU'D BE DEAD AND IN THE BELLIES OF THOSE STINKIN' SAND CRAB THINGS!!!~

Sin winced as Shaleen yelled at her inside of her head, apologizing to the she-demon, but she was still growing angry over Zack's lack of compassion. She stood at the entrance of the cave, feeling the cool night breeze blow in, leaning up against a large boulder.

Zack finished his portion of rabbit and seemed to suddenly lean forward staring at his hands which rested infront of him....he seemed to just sit thier in silence as his glasses seemed to reflect the fire off them unable to see his eyes beyond them. Little did they know he had actually fallen asleep again sitting up his dreams were of different location each on as empty as the other but he actually joyed in walking in them remembering what had happened at each location till he came to a white marble mansion he just stopped and sat in the front garden staring at the building...

Sin stood there, listening to the sounds of the night, not that were many sounds that were nice to hear, when she heard a soft snore coming from behind her. She turned around and looked, seeing Kaelan rinsing off the juices of the 'rabbit' from her hands, when she too looked over at Zack. Her blue eyes caught Sin's then looked back at Zack and realized that he was asleep. She looked at Sin the moment her sister realized it as well. Sin was livid. Shaleen was trying to reason with Sin, telling her how exhausted Zack was and how he'd carried her and then fought only to be injured, but Sin wasn't listening, the stress of the past few months catching up to her. Her eyes turned a reddish/amber and her canines became longer...sharper. Kaelan's eyes widened as she watched her sister begin to shift. Within seconds, where Sin once stood, was now a beautiful, sleek black wolf with silver tips on it's fur. She walked over to Zack, a low growl in her throat and nipped his earlobe, drawing blood so that Shaleen could enter his mind and speak to Kade, only this time a part of Sin was with her. Not a strong form of Sin, for this was her first time doing something like this, but she'd followed Shaleen subconsciously and now faced Kade as Sin the woman.

~You knew, Kade. You knew about Shaleen and you never let Zack know so that we would be prepared. You SON OF A BITCH!!! YOU KNEW!!!!~

Shaleen just stood in the background, letting Sin vent. She knew just how powerful Sin's mind was, although Sin didn't know yet. She wondered if Kade knew. Sin was exactly what Bainbridge had wanted, only problem was, Sin had a conscious. She had compassion. A perfect killer she wasn't.

Sin glared at Kade, her breathing erratic. ~Heal him, Kade. I am just as exhausted and even more wounded than he is, but tomorrow night we move.~ Sin then turned around in Zack's mind and began to fade, Shaleen with her as the wolf trotted to the entrance of the cave. She stopped to turn and look at Kaelan, ~Shaleen, please tell Kae to get some sleep. I will return shortly.~

Shaleen looked at Kade as she faded, ~You love war so much, cousin, perhaps you should consider making friends with these two. Think of the fun we could have.~ With that being said, she disappeared entirely.

Kade felt the nip on Zack’s ear and he frowned slightly as he woke up again looking round standing up he found that Zack being so exhausted had allowed something to intrude upon the mind. Thankfully they formed in front of him instead of having to search for them in the mind. “....I may have known a little but I never imagined she would re-manifest from the wolf DNA in your body.”

Sin shouted and glared at him until she ran out of breath finally she began to fade he was thankful as she left...Kade chuckled slightly as he only Shaleen was left hearing her comment she disappeared he turned round rubbing at his eyes as he clicked his fingers...a floating body it seemed to erupt from the floor. Kade walked around it pulling a crystal he rested it on the body...it turned into Zack as he sighed looking at the shoulder wound the weird thing was the body had a million cuts over it and a huge chunk of black lines covering his shoulder and underneath that was a red blood mass of a pulped flesh. “I have kept you alive from that night and she expects more...” He pulled a needle from the air and began his work again slowly sewing black threads over the shoulder.

Externally they would see to cover over with black sludge some of it dripped out his shirt onto the floor but quickly evaporated as it covered the wound not soon after the black stuff just sank into the flesh. After it had sunk into the flesh the wound seemed to have not even existed Kade had done his part taking the black crystal off the corpse of Zack it sank back into the floor. “You are going to find you can’t even lift your sword for a good time.” With that the two went back to sleeping Zack not even moved from the fire.

Sin had left before Kade had begun to heal Zack's wound, being in her wolf form she moved swiftly through the night, but staying close to the cave. She was unsure of herself now that she knew she carried a demon within her, even though Shaleen was trying to tell her that now that she knew, she would be stronger, faster and harder to kill. Sin, though, would hear none of it. Many things were going through her mind right now, the least of which the fact that she had another sister and the fact that Shaleen had allowed, in her mind, Alex to become the monster she was now. Shaleen finally quieted, knowing that Sin wasn't going listen to reason just now. But, she also knew that it wasn't safe out here at night....alone, even if she was a demon.


Kaelan sat inside the cave, watching as the black ooze healed Zack, knowing that it was Kade doing the healing. She wondered if this was what her healing would look like and wrinkled up her nose. It was rather gross to watch. She looked over at the entrance of the cave, worried about Sin. She wasn't sure what was going on with Sin, but she was not going to leave Zack unprotected while he was sleeping. She sighed, thinking about Shaleen and what it all meant to have her. And what she meant by her not being as strong as Sin since she wasn't raised with the depravities that Sin was. She remembered Sin being beaten that one time, but was there more? Was it worse than that? What had her older sister been put through? Sighing, she sat there, staring into the fire, waiting for Zack to wake up.

It had been a while when finally Zack opened his eyes but like a sledge hammer Kade quickly took control the eyes going red. “Yo.” Smiling his usual smirk to Kaelan as he cracked the next to the side he tried lifting the recently repaired arm it was difficult but it was possible. “I miss the old days when we healed faster.” He slowly stood wobbling slightly due to the lack of blood in Zack’s system but Kade fought it stabilising him finally. He walked slowly to his claymore testing his balance as he reached it he took a deep breath using his bad arm he lifted it his eyes narrowing as he began to try and lift it over his shoulder...it was obviously a strain but he did it the click of the hooks going in place to hold the claymore. Kade turned to Kaelan again rolling his shoulder slowly he knew the hidden damage under the perfectly fine skin. “So where did the raging exposed demon go?” As Kade had no idea on where she had gone and for Zack intensive questioning he would at least find out for him.

Kaelan looked at him, knowing she was talking to Kade and not Zack. "Why should I tell you, Kade? You're only going to make things worse for her. I don't know what is going on with her, but whatever it is, she's having a rough time with it and you're not exactly known for showing compassion." Kaelan went back to watching the fire, making it clear that she wasn't going to say anything to him. What she didn't know was that it was dangerous outside, even for someone who carried a demon within them. She was still naive to some things, this being one of them, but she didn't want to see Sin hurting anymore. But, in trying to protect her sister, she was causing harm.

“That is such a negative outlook on me...I have save our lives a good few times Zack ain’t always the one swinging that claymore of his.” He turned out towards the exit and began to walk slowly for it... “If I hear you screaming I probably won’t be much good if I get here.” He wasn’t going to go on a huge walk Kade just wanted to see the stars...it made him calmer staring at the moon wondering when it will change to a red again. He walked further till he found an ok spot to sit he plopped down a hand resting on one of the dagger hilts as he stared up at the sky.

“Damn smoke.” The smoke from the village was drifting over him making him unable to see the stars he decided he would try to pay more attention to his surrounding in a different manner he closed his eyes feeling out with his strange demonic sense finding Sin easily with her little demonic part a good beacon for Kade he didn’t move his field of sense for a while wondering why Zack tried so hard for her. He finally drifted off slinking over the ground in his mind till he stopped pulling himself back in he hadn’t found a city but a road was good evidence of something it was due west of where they were staying in the cave.

Sin had not gone far from the cave, only far enough to try and clear her mind. She'd learned more in that day than she had in months and not all of it was good. Her mind was filled with questions, fears and angers. Zack had told her to listen to her wolf, only was the wolf part of her dna or part of the demon Shaleen? Did she dare listen to it or not? She wanted to be comforted, but wasn't sure that Zack even knew how to comfort someone. She stopped, just above where Zack was sitting and about 50 yards over. She looked up to the full moon and howled. A long mournful, sad song.

Shaleen sat quietly in her mind....unsure as to what to do. A part of her wanted to chastise Sin for having feelings to begin with, but another part of her couldn't bring herself to do it. She looked over at the girl sitting in the corner of her own mind, huddled iaround herself. The girl was Sin, naked and bloody. Hardening herself, she approached her. "Get up, SinTara!! Get up and fight against this!! You are all three....Sin, the wolf and me. Together, we three make up who you are!!"

Zack finally woke up truly in the mind he just lay there...and realised he couldn’t breathe Kade quickly fell back into the mind, the body falling back in the physical world. He went to Zack putting a hand on his shoulder. “Deep breaths fool you ain’t healed fully and if you die so help me you will be a part of Kade’s gates as well.” Zack finally stabilized his breath as he finally calmed himself to take one long breath. “Now stay here you would just keep passing out if you took control.” He patted poor Zack on the shoulder as he stood back up. “Oh yeah when you surface I would be careful what you say to Sin cause I swear those shiny white teeth she has ain’t for show.” Grinning as he faded back into control in time to hear the lonesome howl. “Music to my ears.” Kade sighing slightly as he slowly sat up his arms still limp at his sides...

He gave a sudden grunt picking himself up as he forced one of his arms to work causing blood to seep through the skin he gritted his teeth slightly as Kade finally got the body standing he gave a shiver as he decided it was time to head back to the cave and when Sin got back in he would tell them of the road to the west at least. He stumbled his way along sniffing the air he stopped the smell of the meat they had been cooking....it was never a good sign when something like that went to the wilds...it could bring trouble that was for sure.

Sin listened to Shaleen, as best she could considering the mood she was in. But, she knew Shaleen's words held truth to them and after she sat there for another half an hour, she turned to trot back to the cave. She reached the entrance and stopped, unsure as how to approach this new problem or was it a problem? She shook her furry head and sneezed. Maybe it was just her problem and one she should deal with. She heard Shaleen give a "Ya think" inside of her head and wished that she could slap her.

She walked on in, looking over at her little sister.....that seemed so strange.....Kaelan was her little sister. But, she looked and saw that she was watching her, warily. "You okay, Sin?" Sin walked over to Kaelan and laid a paw on her leg, then licked her cheek and have her a soft 'woof'. She then turned to Zack and sensed that Kade was in control, so she bared her teeth at him and growled. As she walked by him to go lay down up against the wall, she snapped her jaws at him, her teeth coming together in a loud 'clap'.

Kade blew a kiss to her clapping jaws to wind her up a little he leant back his arragont smile wide as he tilted his head at the fire. "I talked to Zack and we found a road we are considering taking it what about you Shaleen?" Using the demon's name rather than the girls and he dare not admit he hadn't spoken a real word with Zack about the road but loafing in a cave was suffocating he needed people to interest him, or at least be honest manipulate.

He slowly picked up the coat batting it out as a sheet of blood just splattered onto the cave floor as he carefully slipped it on he was happier like this they wouldn't be able to tell if the blood was seeping through the skin. As he jumped up and down in the sodden coat if it dried it was gonna be one rock hard coat he jested to himself.

Sin ignored him as he blew her a kiss, laying down up against the wall in her wolf form. She'd considered shifting back to her human form, but then decided against it. In this form, she couldn't cry. In this form she couldn't speak to him and say the things she wanted to say....not with Kade in control. He would only ridicule her and mock her. So, she stayed furry. She watched Kaelan rise and walk over to her, sitting down and leaning up against her furry body. "Zack cares for you, Sin.....I think he's just scared that he's going to lose you again. You could try to see things from his perspective." All she got from the wolf though was a low growl. Kaelan shrugged her shoulders and lay down, using the warm coat as a pillow of sorts and closed her eyes.


Shaleen poked into Zack's head, "I think that you should quit tormenting my girl and let Zack deal with it. But, the road is a good idea."

Kade nodded as he stretched his arms... above his head wincing slightly he moved over to the two seeing how tired Sin was though he crouched down showing some rather unusual concern for her as he stuck a hand to her head which she quickly almost bit as he retracted. “I was actually going to offer you a ride to get us travelling you know.” Something was different about Kade maybe he had run out of joking steam. Kade waited for her response as he crouched down he gave a rather lonely smile to the two.

Sin didn't trust Kade but Kaelan did.....at least more than Sin. She smiled at him and stood up, heading over to begin gathering their meager belongings, letting Kade try to win Sin over. She just hoped that Kade didn't lose a finger or hand in the process for Sin would only be hurting Zack.

Sin's amber eyes looked warily at Zack/Kade. She sat up and began to change back to her human form. Within in seconds, SinTara was sitting where the wolf had been, her clothes, for the most part, covering her better than when they'd first met, although they were still torn somewhat, showing bare skin here and there. "Why would you offer me a ride, Kade? You don't even like me.....or anyone for that matter. What, you want to carry me just to drop me multiple times along the way? Get a good laugh like I'm sure you did when you tried to get me and Kaelan to kill each other?" Her amber eyes stared into his red ones.

Kade gave a small weak smile as he scratched the back of his head. "It is hard staying evil all the time you know, damn hard work." He rocked on his heels staring at her amber eyes he finally broke finding he couldn't win this stare war he quickly stood moving his eyes away he reached up pushing the glasses back up again. "It ain't all true about me hating everyone...there are people i respect and one..." He stopped thinking for a sec he had been about to say too much. "So yes or no Sin before we head out dragging our feet?" Finally looking back to her his arrogant smile was gone for once question is was he really being a nice person for once?

Sin looked at him....cocking her head to one side in the manner of her wolf. Her eyes weren't as hard as they were, but they still weren't looking upon him favorably either. "And one, what, Kade? Finish what you were going to say, then we can leave. One what?" She wasn't budging until he answered and her eyes and the tilt of her chin said as much.

Kaelan was trying to keep from listening but it was impossible considering they were in a cave. But, she too was wanting to hear Kade's answer.

Kade's eyes narrowed at her as she asked him for the one he bunched his hands into fists. "Someone I trusted." He finally proclaimed as he stared at her now a slightly malice in his glare knowing she would have been too stubborn to not hear an answer from him. "I trusted someone long ago ok." He continued to stare at her before relaxing it wasn't that bad actually... He leant down to her finally his red eyes piercing into those amber eyes. "Now you gonna reject my offer of a piggy back after all this strife?"

Sin looked into his eyes, searching and knew he wasn't telling her everything. But, she dropped it. "No....I can walk. Besides, Zack's shoulder is not fully healed and I won't burden him with carrying me." She was still healing herself and needed sleep, but refused to take it, especially now that she'd found Zack again. She saw the uncertain look he gave her and she stared back at him. "I will be fine....I will shift to my wolf and that will help me keep up." Upon saying this, she shifted into her sleek wolf form, giving him a toothy grin. She rose to her feet and trotted to the entrance, giving Kaelan a 'woof'. She then looked over at Kade cocking her head to one side as if to say, "You coming?"

Kade followed hands in pockets leaving an easy trail but he wasn’t in the mood to mop it up as blood dripped from the coat to the floor, they walked slowly across the barren land before coming across what had been a tarmac road. Only the durable concrete underneath surface had lasted the melding of worlds as Kade walked in the lead with them behind him muttering to himself slightly.

They walked and walked the sun was beginning to dawn a slight worry rose but quickly sank to luckily for Kade it was rising behind the huge smog cloud from the burnt out city so he would be safe to the sunrays he wondered just how far it would be till they hit another place to stay. The group was truly unaware of just how close they were as the worlds had warped and collided certain cities had suddenly sprung up stupidly close to each other and it made little sense. The group walking on the road would find themselves come swiftly closer to another ‘sanctuary’.

A short description of the city: Italy, Venice is a simple description for you who have been there for those that haven’t the city is built on a load of concrete stilts as its usually situated on a river mouth our one will be dumped into a still water lake as it suddenly collided with our realm. The city will have a rich and diverse architectural style, the most famous of which is probably the Gothic style. Venetian Gothic architecture is a term given to a Venetian building style combining use of the Gothic lancet arch with Byzantine and Arab influences.

The period which our lovely lake city now was in the mid 19th century for those wondering what I mean we having Italian mobsters walking across those beautiful arched bridges. Random shootings at night the sound of happy Thompson being heard in the night...talk about violence from one city to another the mafia had been running this town and suddenly dumped in this place they had even more power over the people.

Sin had noticed the blood coming from Zack, but said nothing, even though she wanted to. She herself was tiring, Shaleen becoming more and more agitated with her as Sin pushed her still healing body beyond it's endurance. "SinTara! You must tell him that you need to rest!! NOW!!!" But, Sin ignored her, so she went to Kaelan and spoke to her, telling her that Sin would push herself until her body dropped. Then she showed her, inside of her mind, what had happened to her older sister those months ago. How she'd almost died after being chewed upon by the sand creatures and then fighting to survive as she made her way to Zack. Her body, internally was still not fully healed as she wouldn't allow herself the time her body needed to do so. "She must rest, Kaelan. She is being stubborn." But, Kaelan had gotten to know her sister in the short time they'd known each other and she knew that nothing she did would change Sin's mind and if she said anything to Kade, Sin would only push herself that much harder. Instead, she moved in closer to Sin, keeping an eye on her as they walked.

Sin stumbled a few times, but when Zack/Kade would turn to look at her, she'd look away, still moving. The fifth time she stumbled was when they made it up to the top of a hill and looking down and probably about 1 to miles out, she saw a city....or what was left of one.

Kade stopped at the top of the hill looking down on the lake city almost seeming to float on the surface as he tilted his head. “Reminds me Toreatus?” He knew well enough that it was probably a similar city to the one he was thinking of after all it could be a copy of it from another dimension where a fountain might be missing. “Well we found somewhere for her to rest.” Knowing full well that Sin was driving herself to the bone as wondered how to get to the city when he saw a rather well built wooden bridge... “Come on let’s go and find a nice B&B!” Wondering if they even understood what it meant as he walked down the hill hands in pocket.

Kade walked backwards looking at the girls as an eyebrow rose. “Did either of you learn anything about these water towns in your training programs.” The ever harsh Kade as he didn’t consider their feelings over the ordeal.... “If not I am sure Shaleen has a few memories after all she was with me back then.”

Sin was beginning to drag, only her anger and will keeping her upright. Shaleen had long since given up getting Sin to slow down. She wasn't going to slow down until she dropped. She'd let Kaelan know to keep an eye on her older sister.

Sin trudged along, glaring into Kade's back. "When are you going to let Zack take over, Kade? You are doing what you do best and annoying me." She knew that part of her problem was her exhaustion, but she also wanted Zack back. Dealing with Kade made her uneasy, especially when he tried to be caring and nice to her.

They stopped when they got to the gates, Sin swaying on her feet, but still glaring at Kade. He hadn't answered her yet but she hadn't expected him to either. If he did, it would probably be cryptic and bleak.

The two guards stationed raised their heads as they saw the strange red coated man leading towards the city first thoughts...pimp....but they soon saw the sword on his back and the coat may be red but those dark stains weren’t any old dye. The two guards brought up there Thompson with large drum mags. The redcoat stepped in front of them looking left to right...the man simply said hi his eyes were as red as his coat it unnerved Kevin who was the left guard as he stared at those horrid crimson red eyes he looked to Robert his partner on shift.

“Uhhh.....U...hhh Robbey!”
Shouting even though the two were practically next to each other by the wooden arch which led to the bridge his partner turned towards him aiming the Thompson at Kevin instead.

“I am right next to you no need to shout, and how many times do I have to tell you it is Robert!” Shelling back his retort at pretty much the same volume as Kevin...the two glared at each other for a good duration before finally turning back to the strangers....

“What you want!” Still shouting it was causing the tall man to wince but the two didn’t care as their Thompson’s kept trained on him.... “I don’t like the look of you!” Still shouting as the two didn’t want to tone down.

Deep within the city in some ramshackle club he sat with his shoes on the table....guilded boots? Cowboy boots. The man was counting out money as he sat in the dark room only his boots visible in the smoke infested room the cigarette at the corner of his mouth a little glowing spot in the darkness. “Damn I am bored out of my brain.” Slapping down the notes his hand getting caught by the light from his desk lamp they seemed a strange white....gloves. The man leant back in his chair a long creak coming from its stressed wooden frame.
