Immediately when they got off the elevator and stepped into the Lobby, Shane and Charmeine were taken aback. They saw a massive security force there. In addition, there were three black Hummers along with a Police escort for the front and back.
“What’s going on Dad? Is President Obama staying here?” Shane asked with a perplexed half-smile.
Shane’s questions were cut short when Mr. Ferrell walked to them. “Mr. Hunter, everything has been arranged as required for your family’s safety.”
Tabbruis nodded with a serious look scanning the Lobby. He handed Mr. Ferrell a package. “Mr. Ferrell, you have been extremely accommodating. I have generously rewarded you. I appreciate everything which you have done for me. Please let me know if should need anything. I am truly in your debt, my friend.” Mr. Ferrell smiled and shook Tabbruis’ hand.
Mr. Ferrell smiled wide, “May you and your family have a safe journey. Please come and stay with us again, any time Mr. Hunter. Your family is always welcome at the Ritz-Carlton.”
Just then a huge, gorgeous, African-American man came through the door of the Lobby.
Charmeine thought he must have been a security officer or guard of some sort, because he looked like he was at least 7 feet tall, probably more. The Adonis was so well-built; she could see bulges of muscles under his jacket. He was bald and wore sunglasses.
In a deep commanding voice, he smiled big and yelled, “Tabbruis! Brother, how are you?” He hugged Tabbruis and patted his back.
“Good to see you, Brother!” Tabbruis smiled and gave him a tight hug in return.
The man bellowed, “It has been too many years, Tabbruis!” Then he looked around and said softly in a thick African accent, “Let us go now, and we will catch up when the danger is abated. Would you please follow me Hunter Family?” He escorted them to the second black Hummer, and the door was slammed closed. The gigantic man spoke on his walkie-talkie in code.
Charmeine could not understand the code. But she figured the ‘all clear’ was sounded because the caravan started to move. Her head was spinning. However, when she looked at Shane and Tabbruis, it appeared they both knew the military lingo.
Once they were underway, the man smiled wide showing bright white teeth against his beautiful dark mocha skin, “Tabbruis, very nice to see you again, I would love to meet your family.”
“Neal, let me introduce you to my wife, Charmeine and my son, Shane. This is my brother, Mr. Neal Michaels.”
Wife? Wife? Charmeine thought, and looked at Tabbruis with questioning eyes.
She heard a resounding deep voice say, “Pleasure Ma’am,” and she took her eyes away from Tabbruis. The man shook her hand while it disappeared into his big hand.
“Nice to meet you Shane,” Neal shook his hand.
“I will be in charge of your security from here on out,” Neal proudly and serious announced. “I have served in many battles with Tabbruis. We met in 193 A.D.” At that moment, he turned and looked out the window with a distressed face. Then he turned back again to them and said, “I am from Africa around Cairo, Egypt. Tabbruis and I fought with the African born, Roman Emperor Septimus Severus, so the people could gain control of the corrupt empire. Then with a look of sadness, he said, “But even before, Tabbruis has been my brother. I consider it an honor to be your Protector.”
“So, Brother… Dmitri sent you?” Tabbruis was scanning his brother’s face and offering thanks. He knew Dmitri was backing him up all the way from Romania. Once a Brother, always a Brother, he thought.
“Yes, he did. Dmitri thought I had particular skills in this kind of security. He sent me to assure your family’s safe passage from the Elder Council and Temple Guards… since I was one.”
Shane was alarmed and threw his arm over Charmeine. “Wait! You are a Blood-Hunter Guard from the Elder Counsel How can we trust that you won’t hurt Char?”
Tabbruis opened his mouth to try to reassure Shane.
Neal sternly interjected, “I am a Blood-Hunter and an Elder; I also was a Temple Guard, but I have changed! I do not partake in killing humans and Light-Bearers. I have a dear and good friend who is a Light-Bearer.” Treating Shane like an insolent child, he harshly said, “You see, Shane, there are some Elders like your father; who are tolerant and accepting of others! There are Elders who believe the only way to exist on the Earth is in peace. We do not seek violence but harmony with the humans. Listen to me… this is not the first time I have ever experienced a Blood-Hunter take a Light-Bearer for a mate…”
Neal’s eyes looked out the window, and he became solemn as he said, “But… the couple did not fare well. I am pledging my protection to your family so what happened to them does not happen to my brother, Tabbruis. You have my word of honor, Shane, Charmeine and Tabbruis. I will keep you safe.”
“Thank you, Neal. I have missed you, Brother,” as Tabbruis patted him on his shoulder and smiled.
As they walked out, Tabbruis thought, All of us Brothers under one tiny castle in Romania… what will Charmeine think?
I love, love, love Neal.
Can’t say enough about him.
He is fierce as a lion and lovable as a teddy bear and most of all,
Neal is the strength that I wish I had…
The Light-Bearer Series is not characters to me but emulations of what I wish we could ALL be!
