ConanSilverfang Aka TheGorya
ConanSilverfang:-Conan was still questioning things that had been told to him. As he could only think of what it was he could do. He looked away hearing the words of Charlotte she was very insightful to think of something such as a mask. He nodded to her words as he looked to her.- “I do believe that is the only way. However I need sometime to think on this. I think you all should go home.” -he stood up as he looked to  the kids as he walked over patting both of there heads as he smiled knowing they wouldn’t understand being so young of there age. As he said to them.- “I will be gone for a little while. I need to do something important. You both better behave. I might bring something back for you.” -he looked over to Charlotte as he walked over to her as he smiled.- “I am really sorry about yelling at you. For this I think its best I be alone for a while. I will get a hold of you in a couple days.” -he looked out back to the city as he started walking not to say another word. The question for Conan was he ready to find his brother? Was this truly the end of their journey? Only way to find out was to simply read the news paper. As Conan disappeared into the darkness of the city. A newspaper was flying as it rolled about towards Charlotte in  a round about as if a force was to be thrown at her. The front line reading “Latest news! Graves being robbed leaving nothing but an empty hole.”
*
CharlotteCarrendar:-  The thought of finally being home and told to go home, was something Charlotte didn’t think she would hear for the longest time.  Thankfully, she could see her apartment building that was not far from the Tower.  There was more than enough room for her, the two kids and Li and Lin to stay, since it was the penthouse suite affter all.  She hadn’t been there in so long, she may need to order in food, but aside from that, everything should be as she left it.  To get there, well that would be simple, and now they were within the boundary of Lorewall, Li could use his shadow technique, the children and their mother simply shift from place to place, with little to no effort.  It looked like the time to say goodbye.    Well, it was until she got hit in the face by a newspaper that said. on the front headline.   “Latest news! Graves being robbed leaving nothing but an empty hole.”    And just when she thought she left all the weird things behind on the mountain.  Reading it, she wondered what it could mean, but it was late, and she didn’t feel like rushing off on another adventure mystery right that second.  “Okay Kids….Lin, Li….let’s go home.”  She gathered her children’s hands, and then the trio shimmered from view, only to appear on the balcony of the High tower apartment block across the way.  Li and Lin followed suit, only they used the ability of the Shadows, to move from place to place.  When all were back together, the children cheered and raced inside, the first thing they wanted to do was order pizza.  Charlotte showed Li and Lin through to the guest room, and then came back out to the balcony, to gaze over her city once more.  High in the sky, a new star shone.  It was Fung Le…he never truly left them…and would watch down on them for eternity.
*
ConanSilverfang:-Everyone had gathered it seemed all has been save for now. The weirdest things were happening as the dark ages were coming the new beginning was now the never ending. It had seemed that Lorewall had a dark shadow upon the return of the great Charlotte Carrendar as well as her new friends along the way. They had ordered pizza the smell was something that would draw someone or perhaps it was someone looking for not food but for someone. A Knock would sound at the door behind it was a small girl in a school uniform. She only looked to be about twelve maybe even older the age was not well to be seen. Her hair was laying down flowing over her shoulders and down to the beginning of her small yet under developed breast. It was jet black and her skin was a very pale color. Her eyes were a jelly blue as they glowed in a very odd formation. She was in fact smiling and stood about 5”4, her body size was pretty skinny as she waited for someone to answer the door. It was a wonder of who it would be only to know that she was looking for something. Her uniform was black with white cuffs down the shirt as her bottom was only a skirt that came down to right above the knees. Her shoes had bows on both of them that were bright red. The black leather could be seen that she could just be a girl form the local school. However there was something familiar about her. She swayed back and forth waiting for someone to answer.-
CharlotteCarrendar: – Now, with everyone eating pizza, and relaxing in the main living room, Charlotte was about to turn on the TV, when she heard a knock at the door.  Creasing her brow, she wondered if maybe she had forgotten to tip the pizza delivery driver, and slowly pushed herself off the couch.  No one else seemed bothered, and Luna with Seven both fighting over the remote, the apartment was having that family like feel to it.  Li and Lin were both cuddling in the corner of the couch, blissfully unaware of what fate had in store for them all.  Opening the door, Charlotte found a young girl in a school uniform standing on her doorstep.  A pretty girl by the looks of her, with black hair, and very pale skin.  Maybe she was a neighbour’s child that had come home to find herself locked out.  “Can I help you?”  Charlotte asked, while in the background the latest pop music was playing and the children were dancing in front of the TV.
*
ConanSilverFang:-It was great that for once this girl had someone answer a door as it was none other than Charlotte as  the girl smiled at her tilting her head. As she jumped up and down for a moment clapping her hands as she stood there and then asked an odd question. She looked up at Charlotte as she frowned it wasn’t what she was wanting.- “Aww you dont remember me Charlotte?” -she gave a sad expression as she bit her lip swaying back and forth. Trying not to get upset she quickly spun around as she giggled again. Then something would happen that Charlotte would only understand the girl looked back up at her with a good bright smile. Charlotte would hear a voice in her head only one that would be familiar to her.- “Hey its me Anya. Dont you remember me?” -Anya smiled not saying a word as she knew that Charlotte might remember the gift that was given all those years ago. The touch of Anya’s gift that was only granted to the few that gained her trust as he looked away down the hall making sure no one was coming not sure what to do. Being that she was standing in outside her door way.-
CharlotteCarrendar:- Charlotte found it hard to believe that…they had been home not five seconds and out of the blue, Anya, a girl she had not seen since her days in Nixagris, just…shows up on her doorstep.  “How could I not forget you, Anya.  You nearly wiped out the main street of Nixagris.  Pretty sure that they haven’t forgotten you either.  What…what are you doing here?  I’ve not been here for months.”  Charlotte said, matter of factly.  Luna and Seven stopped bouncing around, to see a young girl at the door.  “Whose that, Mum?”  Seven asked, jumping on the couch and peering over the top.
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya heard the words as she winced at the words when she remember that she did that when she was younger. She frowned feeling guilty as he looked back up to her as she said.- “I didn’t mean too back then. I just couldn’t control my energy Daddy never did let me live that down Charlotte….” -she didn’t forget that day she had lost control over herself. She destroyed a town knowing that she was kept a good eye on for not being able to control that. She looked back up at Charlotte once more as she frowned again.- “well I was here about a month ago…. no one was home so I just walked around. I came back every night. Daddy sent me and Sarah here but I cant find her anywhere.” -she heard Seven’s voice as he peered over then back up at  Charlotte as saw Seven trying not to blush knowing there were other people there. She had always been shy ever since the last time she was around.  He looked up back up at her as she was about to speak again. Until, a large noise came from Anya’s gut as it rumbled. Her face became scarlet red from that as her eyes were completely opened knowing that she was hungry yet she was not wanting to be a bother. She looked down as she said- “excuse me….. I hate having my own body…… its so tiresome. I cant believe Daddy would do this”
CharlotteCarrendar:-  Luna came to the door, and stood in behind her mum, then peeked out, staring at the girl on the doorstep.  Luna had purple hair, so she wasn’t entirely like her mother, or her brother.  Unique would be a good way to describe her.  “You have a noisy tummy.  Want some pizza?”  Luna asked, as Seven got a hold of the controls to the remote and was channel surfing, while Li and Lin made out on the corner of the couch.  Charlotte was about to say something, when Luna grabbed for Anya’s hand to drag her into the kitchen, where there was heaps of pizza.  “I’m Luna…you must know my Mum.”  Luna said happily.  Happy cause she was home, and that she might have a new friend other than her siblings, especially Seven.
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya was dragged into the kitchen as she giggled as she followed  Luna seeing the stacks of pizza that made her mouth water as she hadn’t had real food for so long. She looked to Luna as she bowed like a princess as she said.- “my name is Anya Neverfallen. Nice to meet you Luna.” -she saw a piece of pizza and grabbed it slowly chomping on it only to feel like she was in heaven clearly the way she was eating the pizza it was like she had nothing to eat but apples. As he giggled again in such a girlish way, by far she had changed over the course in years she was older than everyone would think.-
The lights would flicker as Anya started to eat the piece of pizza she grabbed, the T.V that was on would totally shut off completely followed by the lights completely.  The whole shook as the window seemed to have a figure on the other side of it. Though only someone with a good eye sight would be able to see the figure the lights were now out it seemed as if the power had gone out.
-Anya hearing the T.V. Go out and the lights off she dropped the pizza and clutched on to Luna shaking as if she was fearful of something but what could it be. Was it that she was afraid of the dark? Or was something on the hunt?-
*
CharlotteCarrendar: – And like someone flicking a switch,the lights, the TV and everything electrical went out in Charlotte’s apartment.  “Oh great..”Charlotte said, sighing as Seven got angry at the TV.  “I was watching that.”  Li and Lin…didn’t seem to care at all.  Luna, who could see well in the dark, tried to reassure Anya.  “It’s okay.  Probably a fuse or something silly like that.”  Charlotte was hunting around for candles, and bumping herself on the furniture, while the laser eyes of the micro droid, could be seen scooting along the floor of the apartment.  Not quite everything electrical had gone out.  “Why is it so hard to find matches…in the dark?”  Charlotte lamented.
*
ConanSilverfang:The figure outside the window would in fact move from the window that was closed to one that was opened it. It had shown itself to everyone it was black with green eyes that looked like bug eyes. It crawled inside the windows as it had claws that dragged them across the floor its long black body stood up as it made a clicking sounds with its mouth looking above at a corner above the T.V. As it seemed to be communicating to something in that direction. It stood about 6”2 but hunched with its feet having claws as well. The black skin it had was very tight it seemed to be wearing nothing but its skin. However it seemed to be showing nothing vital. It was as trying to talk with something as a low hissing sound was made from above the T.V. The sounds of something slamming into the ceiling came from above it. Creating cracks in the ceiling above. The noise started heading towards Anya and Luna. The lights flickered back on only to show more detail of the black figure that came from the window.  It was wearing a gas mask but it didn’t have a respirator  on as its teeth were old and looked as if they were rotting from the roots of the gums. It looked to Charlotte as it hissed speaking in some odd language that almost seemed familiar to Anya.- “Dayte nam klyuch!” (translation: “Give us the key”)
-the foul creature stood there tilting its head as it waited for answer. The cracks of ceiling fan above Anya and Luna stopped as a loud thump behind them  was heard. A tall figure that slowly started to become visible was standing above Anya and Luna as it reached for Anya. Its hand was gloved almost looking like a special forces officer with a gas mask on as well. Though he was wearing a high tech gloves and boots that had glowing pads on them. As he spoke out- “There you are you little shit. We have been looking all over for you.”-
-Anya was shaking still even though Luna had tried to reassure her yet, she was trembling even more hearing the noise as she muttered under her breath.- “please don’t be them. Please don’t be them. Please don’t be them.” the sounds of clicking only made her curl up almost bringing her knees into her chest as tears started to form as she was now breaking down. When the lights turned on it really made Anya freak as she started screaming around the room then screamed as the man appeared behind them as she backed up to the counter now laying on the floor. Shaking her head in fear of the man.-
CharlotteCarrendar: – “Hey!” Luna shouted, seeing the strange being appearing over the top of Luna and Anya.  It was speaking in a weird voice, and the language was unknown to Luna.  “Keep back…I’m warning you.”  Charlotte had been looking for candles, and then got a fright when the strange creature with black skin and with claws and old teeth that were part of a gas mask like face was peering at her.  Clearly angered and after Anya.  “Oh hell no.  We just got home.”  Charlotte said, now clearly annoyed.  Seven jumped up from the couch, seeing that the TV was making an odd hissing sound.  “The apartment is haunted!”  Charlotte shook her head as Luna stood in front of Anya and held her wrists up in an act of defiance. “Don’t even try it, Mister…I may be a kid, but I’m still arachnid.”
*
ConanSilverfang:-The creature that was by the window as now hissing at Charlotte as it grinds its large claws together making a screeching sound as it points its claws at her like it was going to cut her. It started creeping towards the kitchen its skin was more visible as the light beamed off it’s leather looking skin shined a bit still black as it could. It creep ever so slowly walking with its feet kicked up from the claws but keeping it claw out towards her. It shifted its head every second looking at everyone. The other one that was still in the kitchen laughed at Luna as he looked at her.- “what are you going to do? Shoot webs at me like your some super hero? HA! Out of my way kid before you get yourself hurt.”  -Anya was still shaking as she now hand her hands over her ears looking down at the ground. She was rocking back and forth as if she was traumatized just by this man being here. The man attempted to reach for Anya again  this time reaching over Luna to get to her as he was taller by far. His radio went off from his vest as an electronic voice came out.- “Charlie three two zero please confirm you location.” -the man grabbed his radio as he spoke.- “Bomber two we have the package.”
CharlotteCarrendar:-  Just ast the man grabbed his radio, to confirm that he had the package, Li came up from behind with a large iron skillet and brought it down with force to smash over the head of the creature, hopefully to knock it out cold.  Unless he had eyes in the back of his head, that would have been hard to avoid.  Seven ran across the lounge skidding and then started to go into a series of Karate kid type action poses, which was probably a little too much too late, if the skillet strike made its mark.
ConanSivlerfang:“Crack!” -the skillet came into contact with the mans skull as blood ran down into his mask. The goggles on his mask was in fact broke the glass  shattered and fell over Anya and Luna. Li hit him with a iron skillet no matter who you are the force applied was too much as he stood for section as he fell over on the kitchen floor as his eyes were wide open looking straight at Anya his radio chimed in since the sound that only went through to the other side was the sound of him being hit with the blunt raw iron. The mans breathing became shallower than when he hit the floor. As the blood rushed onto the floor spreading around his head. By the very seconds he was laying this his breathing only became harder to see as his chest gave one lost exhale as the strength the mans body was gone. The force may have not seemed to be that much to Li however was this man wearing all this gear that was high tech for reason? Perhaps it was to protect him. The creature that was in fact still standing in the center of the lounge as it looked around seeing it’s partner was dead as it made some more clicking sounds from its mouth yet again looking at around to the rooming it was in fact out number with its partner dead it pointed at Charlotte as it spoke in a very shrill yet crackled voice.- “We shall return for the key. Mark my words.” -it took its claw down from her direction as it got on all fours and ran towards the open window it came out as it jumped out diving down the large pent house disappearing in the dark.-
-Anya just laid there completely silent staring at the body that was in front of her and Luna still trembling as she grasped something in her hand as he clutched it tightly to her chest. The tip was only seen as it was gold and very shiny like. She watched Seven kick and try to use karate moves on the man when he fell. She was still in shock after all perhaps this was not the first time this had happened.-
*
 CharlotteCarrendar:-   Charlotte watched and then ran after the being that shouted a threat  that they would be back.  As it dived off the balcony into the night  sky, Charlotte stopped right on the edge, waiting to hear the tell tale  signs of it hitting a parked car or the pavement at the very least.  But  there was no loud thud, or the sound of a car alarm and smashing  glass.  It just seemed to jump into thin air.  Possibly a dimension jump  or a portal of some kind.  Clearly annoyed that her home had been  invaded by creatures that were looking for Anya, Charlotte knew she had a  lot of questions for their little house guest.  Seven was still doing  his karate moves, and Charlotte tapped his head as she walked past.  “Okay Karate kid…the show’s over.”  Seven opened his eyes mid kick and  then saw the dead being in the kitchen, sprawled out on the floor.  “Woah, I am good.”  Luna piped up and recounted.”No…Li is good.   Donged him with a skillet, and somehow…it killed him.”  Seven was  mighty impressed.  “Death by wok…hi ya!”  Charlotte shook her head,  and knelt down before the frightened Anya.  “Okay..they were after a  key.  Care to tell us who they were, and what this key is for?”  <3>
*
ConanSivlerfang:-Anya was trembling still as she was holding her possession in her hand as he looked up to Charlotte about ready to start balling again. She made  a frown as she said looking away.- “they were looking for me.” she shook her head as she clutched tighter down on her hands as her finger nails dug into her. As she was trying to clam herself.- “Daddy told me that me and Sarah were a key to something. That we were meant to be something more than just his weapons.” -she looked back up at Charlotte again as a tear left her eye running down her cheek. She was trying to speak as she opened her mouth only to lose her own words not sure on how to word it. She was afraid so very afraid to even talk about what it was they were after. She was trying to come to grips with this as he took a deep breath.- “They have been chasing me and Sarah. Daddy told us that when he would die that we would need to find someone we trust to protect us. Sarah told me that we are keys to some sort of gate. I don’t understand any of this.” -she let go of her hands as she started to ball again diving straight into Charlotte’s arm crying as she started muttering words that were chased by the sounds of sobbing.- “I….I….I don’t want to go with those men……they …they hurt mez!” -indeed she was terrified of the men that were chasing after her she was a key. However the greatest question of all what was this gate that she and her sister were keys too?-
CharlotteCarrendar:- Charlotte leaned against the door frame to the kitchen with her arms folded, listening to Anya explain her story.  That there was not just her, but Sarah as well, on the run from these people that view the two as “keys” to something, but what that was remained to be seen.  Luna was the closest to Anya, and started to stroke her back, every so often, she would look up at her mother, with that “Can we keep her Mum?” expression.  Seven was poking the dead body on the kitchen floor with a spatula, waiting to see if it would suddenly do a come back to life thing, like in the movies.  Li, pulled the spatula off Seven and wiggled his finger at the boy.  “For cooking…not poking.”  Seven made a face, then gave the body a kick with his foot, before skipping back out of the kitchen and going back to bounce on the couch.  His attention span wasn’t the greatest, and he was trying to get the TV to work again.  Clearly, he was happy to be back home, and didn’t really care about the things that just tried to wreck the apartment.  “Mum…do we have popcorn?” he sang out, tipping his head back and smiling at her upside down.  Both kids were already acting like they were home for good.  If even she felt like a single parent, it was now.  She let out an exasperated sigh, and then frowned.  “Anya…you can stay.  No one is going to take you away…its the least I can do for your father.”  Luna did a little fist pump, then gave Anya a squeeze.
*
ConanSilverfang:-As Seven poked the dead body with the spatula  the body was decaying and started to break down under the body suit in seconds. The skin of the body would turn to ash as everything was breaking down. The only thing left that didn’t decompose was the bones as the only thing left was the clothing and bones.-
-Anya tried to calm herself as she sniffled looking up at Charlotte still clinging to her like a mother figure. She listened to hear that Charlotte would protect her and keep her safe from harm this was something that only mad her happy. When Luna squeezed her she turned to her and hugged her only to whisper in her ear.- “ummm… you smell like a wolf. Did you know that?” -she giggled still sniffling from the tears that had settled. Anya seemed to be at piece little did she know she had dropped what was in her hand. As a small yet very bright golden key fell on the floor at Charlotte’s feet. The head of the key had small yet very readable writing on it reading “look into your heart.” this would have been seen before but where? Anya let go of Luna as she smiled looking back to Charlotte as she bowed slightly towards her.- “Thank you Charletty” -give another giggle this time hearing a slight snort. The old name that Anya used to call her when she couldn’t pronounce normal words. She had surely changed over the years. She was no longer that little girl who was out of control with her anger.-
CharlotteCarrendar: – Seven got bored waiting for someone to answer him about his quiz on popcorn.  He pushed himself up off the couch and headed back into the kitchen where there was just the suit and bones remaining of their uninvited guest.  Not even paying attention to their new house guest, he took out a packet of microwavable popcorn and stuck it in the microwave.  Odd how boys thought only of their stomachs at that age.  He seemed oblivious to the others in the room, and was tapping his foot as he waited for his popcorn to be done.  Charlotte wasn’t terribly pleased to now have Anya in her care.  She hadn’t even been down to the Spire to check on the rest of her children.  At this rate, that was going to be a while.  Last thing she needed was to have those ghouls in the funny suits coming after the rest of her clutch.  Charlotte patted Anya’s head, as a sign that everything was okay, and then turned around to go and decided to go up to her room, and finally have a bath, something she had been dying to do for ages.  Now that it was just Li, Lin, Seven and Luna with Anya, Luna wanted to show Anya around the apartment.  But as she was about to step out, she felt something under her shoe.  It was the key, that Anya had dropped.  “What’s this?”  Luna asked, picking up the key, and turning it over in her hand.
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya heard the microwave go off as Charlotte patted her head she couldn’t help but smile. The smell of popcorn only made Anya’s stomach turn as she wasn’t hungry anymore. She watched Charlotte leave to another room. She must of needed time to herself of course she had just had some unwelcome quests break into her apartment who would blame her for that. As Anya  started to watch everyone in the room. She was a bit nervous not knowing everyone here however Luna seemed to make her feel right at home. She tilted her head turning to Luna when she asked her about what she had dropped.- “that’s my daddy’s key!” -he reached for it getting worried that she might lose it. it as something she was keeping close to her as a keep sake. She smiled.- “my daddy gave it too me. He told me it keeps things secret from people. I know that its really just the key to his chest of office.” -she grabbed the key from Luna’s hand as she held it close to her chest as she sighed closing her eyes for a moment. She smiled at Luna still wondering how old she was. Then again she was also comparing her looks to her own.-
CharlotteCarrendar: – “You really should put that on a chain, or a keyring, Anya.”  Luna suggested, walking her back out into the living area, where Li had rejoined Lin on the couch.  You could hear them whispering to each other, and Lin giggling.  Sharing words of love no doubt, from the way they were sitting together.  Seven had a big bowl of popcorn and had found a decent movie channel.  He was sitting cross legged, the bowl in his lap.  He cast a look at his sister and Anya, but then the commercials were over and he got right back into his movie.  Walking Anya through to the second part of the apartment, there was a large dining room, and office, then another door way out onto the terrace, where there was a pool and outdoor bar.  Charlotte must really live it up here when she is on her own, but it was clear to all that she hadn’t been home in months.  Luna picked up that Anya was looking at her funny, and she quirked a brow.  “How old are you, Anya?  I’m nearly 13 now.”
*
ConanSilverfang:-Luna’s suggestion was pretty good since it was spot on not to lose it as she nodded. Anya followed Luna around still unsure of where to go and what was off limits. As she saw how big the place was. Anya’s eyes still fluttering around to see how much Charlotte really could afford. She smiled still eying Luna ever so often picturing her out of her age. Until Luna asked her a serious question how old Anya really was. She was almost too afraid to say as she stuttered.- “umm… well..ummmm..” -he hand to pull out her fingers key still in hand since she didn’t have any pockets in her outfit. She started counting on fingers as she looked back to Luna.- “well I guess you could since I age slowly I would almost 11 or 12  but because of that fact I do age slowly I am exactly 12,342 years old. Since I was born twice.” -she smiled as she was still a bit embarrassed that she said her exact age. Though she wasn’t wrong since the last time in Nixagris Anya went through a lot of changes things she couldn’t exactly explain all that well. She smiled as she asked Luna.- “why do you ask such a question like that? I mean its odd no one has ever asked my age. Though I never have had any real friends other that Charlotte and Abria.”  -she looked out to the pool as she had a moment of squirrel syndrome as she started to become memorized by that fact they had a pool at the top floor of the building.-
CharlotteCarrendar: – “It’s the kinda question you ask a kid.  Like..what is your favourite colour, or who is your crush, you know?”  Luna said, wondering why Anya would find it odd.  What Luna found odd was the age of Anya.  “But you only look 12…damn and how do you get born twice?  Seriously, I would hate to go through that again.  I remember hatching in the caverns beneath that Meeting hall.  You try sleeping with nearly 200 brothers and sisters as well as your cousins.  Not cool.”  Luna made that point clear.  As they walked outside and Anya seemed transfixed by the pool, Luna sat down on an outdoor chair, and swung her feet.  “If my Mum was like one of your only friends, then…you really need to get out more.  I love my Mum..don’t get me wrong, but…friends you can share secrets with and play games…can’t do that with my Mum.  She’d freak at secrets.”
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya perked up as Luna asked her another question as she smirked a bit as she piped out to her questions.- “well the reason I look 12 is that my race grows extremely slow. However doesn’t mean we cant grow up. As for being born twice my daddy created me when he was younger but after the problem I had in Nixagris. I couldn’t control my powers and my body was becoming weak. So my daddy recreated me to be older. However he told me that my age would be a lot less for when I was born the second time. So if you take it in I am only 500,000,000 years young that my daddy. “ -she heard about hatching as she titled her head a bit still puzzled about hatching but she didn’t pay not mind to it as they walked outside only to plop next to Luna. Anya listened to Luna about having more friends even though she had tried before she felt that no one ever gave her the chance. She looked at Luna.- “i have tried before to make friends. But I was always getting hurt….” -she started to remember the horrid things she did to people and even to people that cared. As she looked down at the water in the pool.- “When I got hurt or I got upset a long time ago. I did things that I am not proud of Luna, I wasn’t able to control myself. No one ever gave me a chance instead I was ignored or I was made fun of over things that I couldn’t control.” -She paused on her statements as she thought for a moment only to hear the evil voice in her head speak to her. ‘you know you enjoyed it as much as I did. We would play for hours on end.’ she shook her head as placed her hands over her ears as she kept shaking her head. She finally broke as she made a great yell in Russian.- “NET!”(translation: NO!)) -she kept shaking her head not starting to become violent.-
CharlotteCarrendar:- Just trying to do the maths on her Anya’s father’s age was making Luna go crosseyed.  “Guess you are lucky to grow so slow..I mean, you get to wear pretty small dresses for hundreds of thousands of years….even though that does sound, kinda weird.”  Luna said, rubbing her cheek just thinking of what it would be like to be a kid forever.  Luna was pretty interested in Anya, when her brother couldn’t have cared less.  You could hear him in the lounge room, laughing at the TV, while Li and Lin seemed to have retreated to the guest room for…quiet time.  So really it was just the kids up now, unless Charlotte decided to come back down for cocoa before bed.  Luna sympathized with Anya not being able to keep friends.  Anya’s problems with getting people hurt, were probably caused by a lack of control of her powers, or maybe thee was something more.  She was about to pat her to reassure her that Luna would be her friend, when suddenly the little girl cried out “NET!”  this had Luna fall back, and wonder what had gotten into her.  “Net?  No, we have wireless.” <3>
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya shook her head again as she stopped hearing the voice as she looked over to Luna hearing her comment about what she had said. She took her hands from her ears and placed them in her lap.- “I said net. Its Russian for no…..” -she looked back down at the water sighing as she leaned forward thinking about that she did have an evil side to her she glanced over to Luna.- “I am sorry I just have an evil side that wants to come out. I guess that’s the better way to explain it. I just try my hardest to control that part of me. I cant seem to be a good person.” -he grabbed a hold of her shirt sleeve pulling it back down below her wrist. As she asked Luna.- “do you fear that one day. You would hurt people that you care about? I mean really hurt them.” -she waited for the answer she would hope she would get.-
CharlotteCarrendar:- “You have an evil russian side?  Cool.  I can turn into a spider at will.”  Luna said proudly, being as she really hadn’t told anybody before what she was capable of.  On the question of whether she feared of hurting people close to her, Luna shrugged her shoulders.  “Its a funny think really.  I mean, we can hurt others and not even mean too.  Everyone has a good and bad side.  Take Seven.  You would think he was bad all the time, but that is just how he is.  I know he has a good side, but he would give me a chinese burn if I let that cat out of the bag.”  She laughed, pulling up her sleeve and showing a mark.  “Yeah, he does that a lot.”
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya listened to Luna as she felt bad about her out break of her very own sanity knowing full well she had a good side. The relations of even knowing what her good side was so confused unable to control her other side very well but kept that part of her contained. She glanced over at Luna’s arm as she heard Chinese burns as he saw the burns on her arm as gasped as bit. She looked at Luna giving her a hug as she said.- “that’s not right for him to do.” -she had let go of Luna as he garbed her arm looking at the scars that her brother had inflicted on her. As she thought that it was seriously cruel for him to do that. She looked up at Luna as he asked in a very innocent tone.- “Have you got him back for this? I mean I remember that when I was younger I got kicked by Daddies brothers and sisters. So I ended up playing doctor on them” -she giggled a bit remember what she did in return of them kicking her around. She looked away knowing that wasn’t very nice what she did as she grew quiet thinking that Luna was going to think she was sadistic.-

CharlotteCarrendar:- What Anya didn’t quite understand about Luna was she was able to take a beating and rather well, considering her strength, and she always managed to get one over Seven, since he often didn’t think out what he was doing.  Luna was more strategic in this sense, and this would usually have her come out on top.  Luna accepted the hug from Anya, which was all good.  Girls did this sort of thing.  And besides, it felt nice.  “Oh, trust me, I got him back in spades.” Luna joked, a cheeky smile appearing on her face.  “You should have seen the time I put itching powder in his smalls cupboard.  He was scratching his crotch a whole day.”  Luna whispered, hoping that big ears Seven didn’t hear that.  He was still clueless to it all, and she wanted it to stay that way.  “What was your Dad like?  Mum never tells us about ours.”
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya giggled hearing that she got her brother back for something like. However it made her smile she hadn’t have a time where she could sit there and talk with someone. Until she asked about her father as she looked down again for a moment as she looked back at Luna.- “Daddy was a cold man but he cared for me and Sarah. Even though he created us both he always made sure that we were both one f his.” -she remembered the day Emiko was born as she smiled. Thinking of the times she was able to act like a kid.- “Emiko daddies real daughter. I used to play with her. Always got to show her things, Daddy didn’t even call us sisters even though she was his real daughter he treated us exactly the same. As I was told once a father is one you can go to as well as look up too.” -she smiled even though she knew her own creator was dead as she gripped the key into her hand tightly as she continued.- “Even though daddy is gone. I know that this key is something I can hope to give to the one who has his keep sake. He told me to give to that person…” -a tear dropped from his face as she looked at Luna trying to hold back tears.- “I am happy that I knew your mother. Since I am clueless to know where anything is in this world… I miss my home.”
CharlotteCarrendar:- “I think you might know my Mother a lot better than I do.  She wasn’t home much when I was little.  I think it had to do with running the country…or something.  As for a Father.  Unless you could call an Ettercap guard a father figure, that is all I really had.”  It was actually a mystery about the kid’s real father, one that probably would never be told.  “So…you had a sister, who…is your Daddy’s real daughter….and…okay….wait, you were created?  Like…in a testube…or in a microwave?”  Luna asked innocently, since this went beyond her level of understanding.  She wasn’t that clued in with how creations worked.  “He did a good job though.  You don’t look like you got anything missing.”  Luna replied leaning back and seeing if she had a key or a pull cord in her back like a dolly.  When she saw nothing, she smiled brightly.  “You know, if you add water to sea monkeys they grow.”
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya became confused as she was asked questions trying to figure out why she didn’t understand. She giggled as she said.- “well there is a reason I was created. In a sense Luna your only seeing my true form as a being. As Daddy has said we were not just his weapons.” -she thought for a moment as she tried to figure out a way to explain how she was created thinking as she smiled.- “think of it this way. I was created from a part of my father that was his essence of what he truly is. Sarah my sister was made form his innocence. We both were weapons that we can turn into at will if we need too. But we don’t like to unless with daddy. Emiko Blade Gorya is daddies real daughter.” -she looked at Luna knowing this was all alien to her as she smiled giggling trying to see if she would understand. she patted her back as she questioned.- “sea monkeys? Ummmmm……..okay” -Anya was now in questioning if she was comparing her to a test subject thinking that she might have gotten the wrong idea.- “i don’t think Daddy used water on us. I think more magic than water….”
CharlotteCarrendar:- Poor Luna, this was getting too technical.  First Anya said they were created, THEN she said she was a weapon.  Luna stared at Anya blankly.  “Eh?”  As far as Luna was concerned, weapons were like guns, and rockets…and things that go bang.  How could a little girl be a weapon?  Talk the ear off the enemy?  All these thoughts were going through Luna’s head, and she kept tilting her head, as she listened to Anya try to explain all this.  “Your daddy keeps his magic like…in a bottle or something?”  Luna inched forward and sniffed Anya to see what magic smelt like.  “You don’t smell magical to me.”  Not that she would know what magic smelt like, but it was worth a try.  “Essense..huh?  I don’t think my daddy had essense, he used sperm.”
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya blushed knowing this was going through her head as she asked.- “well I could show you what I mean as I was my father’s weapon but….. I don’t want to fall on the ground.” -she heard the word sperm as she blushed even more hearing that as she knew what it meant. In the greatest of minds Anya was older in knowledge as far as mentally developed she was still a child inside not sure of how to answer Luna. She knew that magic was kept inside the soul but perhaps it was something that couldn’t even be explained by Anya herself. She pondered trying to think of way to explain.- “i don’t know how to explain most of it. I really don’t know. I don’t know how things could be created only  the basics.” -she looked at Luna as he poked at her cheek.- “so do you want to see?”
CharlotteCarrendar : “Only if you don’t blow up the apartment.  OKAY!” Luna said excitedly, hopping up and down, like she was about to get a new toy.  Quickly she checked to see if anyone was bothering to keep an eye on them, and when she looked in the lounge, Seven was asleep, his mouth opened wide, and head titled back.  Grinning, she tip toed back out to where Anya was and then nodded vigourously.  “Do you want me to get….like a camera and record this?”  She was starting to think that this was like a rare event that didn’t happen all that often. “Did your Dad use you to fight a lot?  And…did he keep you in the cupboard after?”
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya giggled again as Luna got excited from her wanting to see her turn into a weapon. She watched Luna run out and checking on everyone seeing if they were in the clear. She heard Luna ask if she should record it as she tilted her head to the side saying.- “Eh? Ummmmmmm I don’t know really no one has seen my transform in a long time.” -she blushed knowing that it was odd having someone watch her turn into one of her father’s weapons as she didn’t know how to deal with it. To her it was really embarrassing to show someone that she just met, But who cared at the point it wasn’t like she was going to keep it quiet for long. She looked at Luna and around seeing she needed more room as she said.- “well I think I should do in front of the pool you might want to be behind something. Since I cant control the backlash of the transformation. I wouldn’t want you to get hurt.” -still nervous about doing it she waited for Luna to let her know she was ready.-
CharlotteCarrendar: – Giddy with excitement, Luna nodded feverishly, and then looked about for somewhere to hide.  The bar area looked good, with a tall wooden structure she was certain to be safe behind. Giving Anya two thumbs up, she ran like a rabbit over to the bar area and dived behind it, in a fit of giggles.  “This is so exciting.” she squealed, and then her head bobbed up from behind the bar. “Do you want a count down…cause I can do that.”  Luna chortled, eyes wide as she stared at Anya.  Clueless, she had to wonder if Anya would turn into something cool….like a tank….or a grenade.  “10…9…8..7…ah shit…1!” she then ducked behind the bar and covered her ears.
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya watched Luna get behind the bar as she sighed hearing she would count down anya walked over to the pool side. She closed her eyes spreading her legs to shoulder length apart as her skirt swayed out a little bit. Anya placed her arms out like a cross apart out on both sides of her. She waited for Luna to count down hearing “1” from her friend. Her body closely started to glow in a red demonic color as her power was being released. The apartment started to shake a little bit as the crimson aura started to grow bright a noise from her own body was heard it was as if someone was giving a loud mourning howl from her. Her body started to lift from the terrace. Now floating Anya would be in midair as her own clothes started to become  alive as the white in the uniform started to turn black itself as it wrapped her body slowly but surely it was turning into a black robe around her ripped and shredded from the bottom as the crimson red aura started to wrap around her even more. The robe started to grow in length as seconds Anya was now covered by the rode as the robe started to swirl. It became a shadow itself as the robe was now just a pitch black of darkness. The wind would start to pick up from the swirling motion of the the mourn went silent.
They say darkness cant harm you however when this is said to those they may not have known of Anya Neverfallen. The black swirling funnel of darkness started to thrash slashes of darkness around the bottom of it cutting slightly into the marble floor of the terrace of the apartment. A loud crash sounded as the darkness expanding disappearing but leaving black flames around a large sword far to big for one person to pick up with one hand. As its blade was tainted with darkness its handle was dark crimson as it was stuck into the ground standing straight up with a a crimson sparks of electrical current seemed to be running through it. At the hilt was a grand jewel of rudy placed in the hilt. As they symbol they craved were that of the a swirl that seemed to be in the middle of this jewel was pitch black. It revealed Neverfallen the creation of a kiyrin’s weapons. It was unsure of how Luna would react to something such as this.-
CharlotteCarrendar;- Up in the top of the apartment, Charlotte was easing back in her glorious marble bath, surrounded by candles, with soft music playing, the main lights off, and she had one of those eye patch things on her eyes, like a compress, to help with tired eyes.  Tired, she was tired, and this was the first real chance she had had to herself, just to unwind…relax…and not have to worry about the world falling down around her.
In the guest room, Li had spread rose petals all over the bed, and Lin was slowly disrobing, much to the Shadow demon’s delight. Oh how long they had waited to be together.  The first night of many.  Giggles and teasing whispers were what you could hear from their room.  It was heaven, and blissful.
The lounge was now the unofficial bedroom of Seven, who had fallen asleep with a bowl full of popcorn on his lap, and the TV was now showing rude cam girl commercials, which thankfully, cause he was asleep, he couldn’t see.
Out in the pool area, Luna had just counted down to 1 and that was when a mini version of hell was about to be unleashed on the top floor of the High Rise apartments.  A lound crash and the cutting of marble tiles, the roar as Anya morphed from a simple girl, into a mighty sword, caused…many things to happen.  Charlotte, who was relaxing in the bath, suddenly felt the earth quake like shaking, and the crystal light fitting was clinking madly.  She sat bolt upright, water splashing out the side of the bath, candles being knocked over, bubbles everywhere, and a naked Charlotte wondering what was going on.  Down in the spare room, Li had just dived on the bed, when the bed actually collapsed, with the canopy falling on the startled lovers.  Buried under the fabric, they both looked at each other, wondering who did that.  In the lounge, the explosive force woke up Seven with such a fright, his bowl of popcorn went flying and all he could see on the TV were boobs.  “GAAAAH!”
Luna was cheering as she came out from behind the bar. “DO THAT AGAIN!’
*
ConanSilverfang:-The blade chimed as it quickly blew the flames out as the demonic charge left its body. Anya was still not awake she had not even known that she was fully transformed as voice form the sword spoke in yawning feeling.- “i …..feel so tired……” -The sword slowly cracked as it started to break from its own form. Anya couldn’t hold it as the bladed shattered into pieces as Anya appeared back again in the very place she had transformed. She was laying on the ground unconscious completely knocked out. Something was different Anya’s uniform wasn’t there anymore as the robe that had formed had taken the place of clothes. Something was off for Anya not to be able to keep her sword form but to her it was unknown. She laid there completely fatigued from the energy just used as she was fast asleep.-
*
CharlotteCarrendar: – Seeing Anya change back from the sword to the girl again, and just laying there…asleep, Luna looked confused.  As great as a trick that was, it was over so quickly, it left Luna wondering a lot of questions.  From upstairs, Luna heard her mother yell out…something that was to do with no towels, and cursing with some very rude words.  Luna grimmaced and tipetoed over to Anya, bending down and trying to shake her shoulder. “I think we pissed off my Mum.”  Seven was still shocked to see the sex commercials, and was back to eating his spilt popcorn.
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya was shook by Luna as she glanced up at her in a groan. He head was pounding it was as if she was hit by a bus she couldn’t help but place her hand on her head. She looked at Luna as she asked her.- “we are in trouble aren’t we?” -Anya sat up hearing the screaming of Charlotte as she winced at her headache  as she even questioned why she couldn’t keep her transformation.- “Lets get inside before Charlotte sees what happened…” -she tried to get to her feet as they kicked out from under her she blushed as she felt so useless knowing she was exhausted from what had just happened. She looked at the ground seeing she had broke the marble as she felt bad about what happened as she looked at the doors almost expecting Charlotte to bust through and yell at them.-
CharlotteCarrendar:- But Charlotte didn’t come down the stairs, nor did she yell further. Why you might ask?  Easy, she was hobbling across the floor of her bedroom, and then she sat down on her bed, the same bed she had not been in for months.  The sheets were the finest spun cotton, with a beautifully plush throw over.  The moment she ran her hand over the fabric, she could not have cared less if a meteor hit the apartment.  She wanted “Charlotte” time, and crawled into bed, and went off to sleep.  Luna sat waiting for the screaming that…stopped.  “Okay…SEE…no dramas.  Few cracked tiles, no dramas.”  Thinking they just got away with murder, she helped Anya inside, but as she passed the TV screen she took one look at the titties and said calmly. “Fake…fake…oh my god, fake.”
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya sighed with relief hearing that Charlotte was going to sleep she stood up with Luna’s help. They were going inside as Seven was watching porn on the T.V. As she glared at him with a really sharp but dreadful look as if she would kill him for looking at woman like that. Anya wasn’t too happy that others would take joy in watching woman get totally demoralized by placing things that they should do with someone they love on T.V. She looked away then towards the other room as she asked- “where are we going to sleep at?” -she could feel herself g3etting very tired again knowing she had pushed herself still trying to wrap her mind around things only to know that she may not get enough rest.-
*
CharlotteCarrendar; –  “I think there is another few guest rooms.  This place is huge, and no way am I sleeping in Mum’s room.”  Luna helped Anya through the lounge then down the side hall, to a series of rooms.  One of the doors was unlocked, and she opened the handle to find a suite with a large queen sized bed in the centre, more than enough room for the two girls.  “This looks good.  Come on, time you got some sleep, sleepy head.”  Luna teased playfully, showing her where to get in.
*
ConanSilverfang:-Anya nodded barely even able to hear Luna anymore she was so tried the only words that she could hear was sleep. She really over did herself though if you think about. Barely even eaten a good meal in over a few days as well running for her life. She did all that on top of a transformation that would tire anyone out emotionally and physically as well. She had Luna help her into the bed as she laid down on the nice queen sized bed it was soft and fluffy for her. Anya bounced as she hit the bed as grabbed the pillow pulling under her head as she looked up at the ceiling for a moment then to Luna.- “why does your mom have such a big place? I mean is she rich?” -she was tired yet so full of questions she could start to feel herself drift off slowly to sleep as curled up acting like she was cuddling someone. Her eyes slowly started to close.-
*
CharlotteCarrendar:-  “From what I have read and heard, my Mum was the one that led the resettlement of this world, and helped build much of Nixagris, that is the northern city.  I guess…she got rich that way.”  Luna said with a shrug, getting under the covers beside Anya, and resting her head on the pillow.  Gently Luna stroked Anya’s head and whispered softly- “True richness comes from family though…doesn’t it?”  Course, Anya would fall asleep before being able to answer that, and Luna cuddled Anya, fallling asleep herself.
