I was still gawking at Mark and Tallie when this new... thing, entered. Well, I'd say it was a Thing because I really had no idea what it was. It was like a vampire in some ways, but without the ever-present bloodthirst I'd noticed in the other two. Well, this one was thirsty, but not for blood.
It wanted something else. Something deeper, something more potent...
I shuddered, watching the thing cautiously before stepping out of the shadows, wings furled slightly against my back, but still present enough to be seen.
And registered. The thing stopped when it saw me, looking at me suspiciously.
"And who might you be?" I asked casually, leaning against the wall and inspecting my talons. I was being subtle about it, but I wanted to give this thing a message.
I am no weakling human. If you try and eat me, I will fight back and you will promptly be torn apart. Comprendo?
