“Mactus” action… from “The Light-Bearer Series”
Suddenly, Charmeine started to become a little scared and flesh began to crawl.
Sandra went into the bathroom to finish changing her pants and shut the door.
Charmeine opened up the door to the terrace, letting the breeze cool her. She walked to the railing and felt odd with blackness all around her. Instantly, she felt someone there with her. The house alarms started going off. She started to run inside.
A man came from the shadows into the moonlight. He grabbed her hands back to the stone railing.
Charmeine’s hands began to spark. She struggled but he was strong and held her two wrists with one hand.
The man had long black hair, black eyes with pearl white skin. He wore a black double-breasted waistcoat with brass buttons and tails. A white ruffle was coming out of the top of his jacket and sleeves. His black trousers were tucked into black riding boots.
Charmeine could hear men shouting orders in Romanian below on the ground. The castle security knew the perimeter had been broken. Her hands were sparking but it was ineffective because she couldn’t get out of his grasp.
The man’s mouth went to Charmeine’s neck and hissed in an English accent, “I do not have long my sweet. So I need you to give a warning to your group of outlaws. The Elder Council knows about all of you. Each of you will end up on the ‘Altar of Judgment.’ However, you are very sweet my dear. I could be persuaded to change the harsh punishment for your little revolutionaries if you come with me willingly?”
Charmeine said, “NEVER! You have to be joking!”
He said, into her ear, “You, my dear are even more beautiful than the last time I saw you… I did not think it possible. Ah, your body will please me well.”
He touched her arm and she jerked it away, but he was still holding her wrists like a vice grip. He said, “And you smell so good.”
Charmeine said sarcastically, “It’s called ‘soap’! Haven’t you ever used it before? You filthy piece of…”
The man growled gripping her throat.
Charmeine felt his fang on her skin ready to bite her. She cringed at the thought of it.
Out of the blue, from across the terrace, Sandra ran and threw a full body kick to his head. He stumbled back releasing Charmeine.
Then Sandra laid a precision punch to his face and stomach at the same time. She whipped around giving him a scissor kick to his mid-section.
Charmeine looked with awe while the tiny Sandra jumped up and gave him a huge swiping kick to the jaw, smacking him hard into the railing.
The man began to growl lounging at Sandra.
Charmeine threw herself in front of Sandra bearing her sparking hands in front of her.
He gave Sandra a deadly stare and hissed angrily, “You are going to be sorry for that bitch!” The dark man growled deeply with his eyes turning completely black.
Then he looked at Charmeine’s charged up hands and composed himself. He dressed down his jacket. “Oh, another one! How delightful, the Elder Council won’t have fight over you Charmeine.”
She was taken-aback he knew her real name.
“Oh, I see you still do not remember, what a shame, we could have reminisced. After all we shared such a loving… intimate moment. Ah… you cannot remember, can you? Poor little Charmeine.”
He stood very close to her looking like a cat ready to strike. He hissed, “My luscious Charmeine, I am Pascal.”
Charmeine’s face went white. She asked, “Pascal as in Thomas’ Father?”
Pascal said in a sing song kind of voice nodding his head, “Tsk, tsk… Charmeine… we knew each other in a much different way. Your body against mine was divine. I have been waiting to see you again.”
Charmeine’s stomach was turning flip-flops shaking her head and yelled, “No! No!” while white light was amassing in her hands and wind starting to blow.
Sandra yelled in disgust, “You pig! Get away from her!” and her hands began to spark with blue flames.
Unbeknownst to Charmeine and Sandra …Tabbruis, Shane, Neal, Thomas and Dmitri had rushed into the doorway of the terrace. The men started to spring at Pascal, but Dmitri held all of them back. Dmitri saw electricity and wind flying around Charmeine. Tabbruis was still fighting to get lose and Dmitri yelled, “She will not die! Tabbruis believe!”
Sandra gave Pascal massive side-kicking blow to the chin which swirled him around. Sandra’s hands burned with blue fire said, “Let’s give him some serious damage, Mom!”
As Pascal’s hand went to his face, he raised his eyebrows and laughed, “Oh… ‘Mom?’ I didn’t notice a resemblance.”
Charmeine, too smart to give anything away about her or her family replied, “Not the brightest bulb in the package, huh?”
He hissed at Charmeine.
She held one finger at him charged with a large electric current glowing brightly lighting up the whole side of the Castle. Wind was rushing around Charmeine like a lazy tornado. She began to hover off of the ground.
Charmeine said in a loud booming voice, “One touch of my finger and you will die Pascal.
Go back to your Elder Council and tell them I will bring them down to the ‘Altar of Righteous Judgment’ in Heaven.
I will send them to Hell where they will be with Lucifer chained in the Lake of Torment and Fire until the end of time.
Your arrogance will be your undoing. Bide your time, you black devil, because you will die and suffer for eternity!”
Charmeine threw a flash of lightning across and in front of Pascal’s body. His eyes flew open in fear.
In that instant Pascal, turned laughing with a sinister tone and vanished.
Charmeine landed on the ground and the wind died down. Her hands returned to normal and she was breathing heavy.
Sandra’s hands still sparking rushed up to the railing and hollered, “And next time, leave the Little Bo Peep outfit at home. Didn’t you ever hear of the GAP! It’s time to get clothes in this century!”
Charmeine and Sandra quickly hugged, laughed and patted each other on the back.
Sandra joking around yelled, “That was so cool! Can we do that again? That was awesome for sure!”
