Dark Heavens – Chapter 4

Never Ending

Bones creaked under his feet as he traipses deeper into the cave in the moonless night. The muffle wails have stopped, he mostly cherishes screams though. Vlad is precarious, he can smell intrusion and something more sinister along with blood.

‘Dead’s Blood’ he whispers.

Crunching more bones he reaches the end of the cave. It’s empty. A chill seeps through him. He roars loudly, his voice screeching through the thick walls of the cave, reaching far away, making wild animals shiver and hide. The birds are quiet, the movements sparse.

“It’s a trap” Vlad fumes. His fangs protruding, ready for the pray, his sharp long nails piercing his own hands as he clenches his fists. The wounds from his nails heal themselves before he starts marching towards the exit.

Boom. The bomb goes off splashing the silver on his body drilling holes everyplace it touches.

“Silver can only make me immobile, you dunderhead” Vlad’s gasping fails to match his words.

“This is not just any silver, its silver from Unicorn. It will kill you Vlad. Slowly. Very very slowly” Santiago smirks.

“Why?” Vlad bleats. He squirms and gnashes his teeth, his eyes now vivid crimson.

“I am forever. And so are my rules. Traitors are always punished to death.”

“I thought I will never get rid of my husband” Jasmine chortles and starts snogging in front of direly fluttering Vlad.

“Let’s go” fingers entwined they saunter out of the cave.

Soon there is the wedding of Jasmine and Santiago. Santiago is now the Prince of Vampires and Head of the newly formed Human-Vampire Association along with Mr Valcheva who will represent Humans.

Santiago and Jasmine were madly in love since the time they saw each other, but when she knew he is Vampire she changed her course of life. But Vlad mesmerised her and she was indeed in love with him until she met Santiago again in the Mansion with Vlad. She was unnerved, confused for days about her own feelings. Vlad was good, caring, and everything that a woman wants from her lover, but he kept busy. It was when she was about to die, Santiago reached there and saved her life. It was impossible for her to live as human as her body was very much destroyed. Hence he made her vampire by pouring his blood into her mouth, till she recovered completely. He has saved her life.

They want to tell this to Vlad and be open about it, but the war broke out. It was in the war they saw the most devilish side of Vlad. Vlad has become so obsessed with power that she detested him. Vlad killed every vampire who failed to follow his order brutally, captured Darth, and kept him in the dungeon for weeks. Tormenting him, torturing him, taking his blood for days, and filling cans for making more lethal weapons with the most lethal combination of science and magic. Vlad has grown into a monster. A monster that kills for pleasure. Vampires kill the only traitors in the new world. But Vlad killed for pleasure. After the war, he started eating humans alive. He loved their screams and beating heart. He loves to see the beating stop.

Vlad is now dangerous to his own people. He tried to be brutal with Jasmine, but Jasmine is a witch difficult to trap. She apparates immediately out of the mansion, out of Vlad’s life. She never wants to be with Vlad again. She regrets that she married him in a time of war under the pressure of her own emotions to prove her loyalty. She knows very well, has she denied him marriage he would have just held her hands known the reason, and killed both her and Santiago.

Santiago never tried to locate Jasmine. He knew if she wants she can come to him. One night when Santiago was pacing in his room, worried about Jasmine, Jasmine appears just before him. He hugs her and immediately they both were in bed kissing each other and making love. Santiago loves Jasmine. There is no truth bigger than this. He decides to stop the tyranny of Vlad and marry Jasmine.

His first problem is that Jasmine is already married to Vlad, and Vampiric marriage vows are unbreakable. The only way to end the marriage is the death of either of them. The second problem is that Vlad has definitely found some elixir that is making him stronger and powerful, toxic and disastrous is more suitable to describe Vlad’s actions.

Santiago decides to know the elixir first and then make a simple antidote that could pierce through that outer layer. In his quest to find the antidote, he meets many vampires who have lived for thousands of years on this earth and gaining knowledge about the Dark Heavens. He meets one such Vampire, Shannakay Jacobs. She walks in her lustrous body and sits calmly opposite Santiago. She has most voluptuous figure that would spawn a desire to have her in any man. Her silky hair lay on her back, her eyes mesmerise Santiago for few seconds.

He stammers in the beginning, gears himself in self-control, and says again, “There are ways of killing Vampires who have gained superpowers, blended with magic. I want to know that”

“Aren’t you tired of killing half the race already?” Belladonna pierces right into his eyes shutting his thoughts for few minutes. Santiago realizes his mouth is open and drooping, as he regains his self-control again. He decides not to look into her eyes. A glass of water stands in front of him. He has his own suspicion about it. Water may have its own ways to conquer his senses. Belladonna is a noblewoman she has helped many vampires and solved many Vampire –Human issues during her time. Now she has become very reclusive and does not like to disturb trivial affairs. Only one thing is very ugly about her. She loves men. She wants them. A new man every fortnight. Hence men are scared, she traps them, makes them fall in love with her and when she is tired, throws them out of the house. None of them ever was able to overcome the loss. Her love was so deep into their hearts that they keep wandering around her castle, killing each other and fighting for her.

It was Vlad who has stopped this by a warning, he said he does not mind her being promiscuous, but she will have to free the vampires from her trap of magic and control. She should not affect their mental health. She acquiesced and had never trapped any men’s senses since then.

She falls in love with Santiago when he steps out from his car outside. The water of course has the love potion that is least required when her eyes can do magic. It made her flinch a bit, twice when Santiago averted his eyes and regained his self-consciousness. She shakes her hair as a sign of her getting ready, her big breasts dance a little, and then she looks with a lot more love in her heart at Santiago. Santiago looks back. She, in her mind, thinks of ways of kissing him on his body and everywhere. He was pleased and satisfied after an hour-long love. Santiago was now on her bed with her. Though for a moment it feels strange, Belladonna was quick. Santiago was difficult but she now had him for more than ten days. Every time when realization is about to venture its way into him, Santiago would twist his face a bit and loss in his reverie, Belladonna would immediately sit astride him and start talking about their love, making him forget about anything and everything. After five more days, Belladonna was done with him. She went to her little room, behind her vast bedroom, and gets a bottle of Unicorn blood. She dresses and waits for Santiago in the dining room, sipping red wine to come in his clear state of mind.

“How long have I been here?” Santiago fumes, not looking into her eyes neither her huge breasts nor down her soft lean legs, he simply has to close his eyes.

“I won’t enchant you again, don’t worry.” Belladonna smiles, her lips like petals look more tempting them ever. Even without the power of enchantment, she is mesmerizing.

Santiago dares to look into her eyes, and then he starts to leave the castle. “Here take this” Belladonna says, still sitting in her chair, “This is Unicorn Blood, broil it with obsidian stone, human femur, vampire skull, and three hearts of three lions for five days. Let it rest and cool for ten more days, you will get semifluid, high-viscous silver liquid above and a violet solid residue underneath. The silver-liquid layer extracted this way will kill any Vampire, the residue shall be kept in scorching Sun. It will turn into a stone so powerful that it will give you the power to give life to the dead and enchant anyone by will. Two uses two different ways, find out on your own.” Saying this Belladonna rises and disappears into her castle leaving a bewildered and bewuthered Santiago behind.
