tumblr_lbugygqnE51qb90czo1_500_thumb“Shane, I know Tabbruis was not telling us the truth,” she urgently looked him in eyes. “Something is not right. Whatever happens, you must take cover. Your father and I have powers and can protect ourselves and you. Do not interfere! Stay safe!”

Shane started to refuse.

“Promise me! I can’t lose you, Shane. Please promise me now!” 

“Yeah, I promise. Chill Char, it will be fine.” Shane rolled his eyes.

Neal slowly opened the door to the limo.

Suddenly, two Blood-Hunters came out of nowhere and began to attack.

Charmeine flew out of the limo to help. In a blink, the Blood-Hunter who attacked her before grabbed her. Now, there were three Blood-Hunters.

tumblr_lciiy2v5GP1qb90czo1_400_thumbShe surprised him with a rising knee strike aimed at his chest throwing him back. Her hands lit up with white electricity. “Touch me one more time, and you are dead!” She swung a swiping kick to his jaw, and it made the Blood-Hunter turn like a top.

At the worst time possible, Shane got out of the limo.

The Blood-Hunter ran and put him in a choke hold as Shane struggled to be released.

Neal and Tabbruis were still fighting the other two Blood-Hunters.

When Tabbruis saw Shane in the Blood-Hunter’s grasp, he screamed, “NO!”

Charmeine thought the only thing she could do was to get help. She threw a shock to the Blood-Hunter battling Tabbruis.

Then he bit into the attacker’s jugular. Blood poured out of him so fast they knew he would be dead in a minute.

Seeing this, the Blood-Hunter holding Shane became angry. He twisted Shane’s head back exposing his jugular ready to bite.

Tabbruis jumped high into the air landing his boot into his face.

He let Shane go reeling from the kick.

95898553-1“Now Charmeine!” Tabbruis yelled.

She threw a powerful strand of lightning at the Blood-Hunter.

He avoided it by jumping up out of the way.

Again, she threw another lightning shock and this time, it impacted him. The white lightning penetrated his body, and he lurched in pain as smoke arose from his charred clothes.

Shane started to attack him.

“Get on the plane now, Sergeant Kelly!”

He didn’t want to retreat, but he ran into the jet looking out of a window.

Neal, Tabbruis and Charmeine stood by the plane.

The two Blood-Hunters left started to laugh. The second Blood-Hunter got out a handgun and fired off two shots at Tabbruis and Neal. With superhuman speed, they ducked to avoid the shots. During the distraction, the Blood-Hunter who attacked Charmeine at Jones Beach seized her and sunk his long fangs in her neck.

Shane ran to save his mother.

193232640232024704_mPX7rwUg_fBut Neal stopped him. “We have to battle the other Blood-Hunter! You will be their next target! Get on the plane, Shane!”

Begrudgingly, he raced back up into the plane. Char was his responsibility and damned if he wasn’t going to help her.

Tabbruis stepped forward, but Neal held him back also.

The other Blood-Hunter walked to his friend whose teeth were still in Charmeine’s neck. Still brandishing the gun, he smiled as he bragged, “This was easier than I thought it would be, Brother.”

All of a sudden, a shot rang out. The Blood-Hunter with the gun had been shot with a bullet between the eyes. As he fell back, blood poured like a small fountain out of his head.

Neal and Tabbruis looked around and saw Shane behind them holding a large fifty caliber handgun like a sharpshooter.

All three ran to the Blood-Hunter holding Charmeine.

He lifted his mouth off of her neck. “If you walk another step near me, I will drink the last of her sweet blood.”

**********************************************

securityjpg658fImmediately 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.

concierge_header_imageMr. 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.

193232640232024704_mPX7rwUg_f“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.”

Dmitri“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,

totally loyal.

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!

Neal’s Song…
