The moment mom used her smoke bombs that's when we made our move. We weren't worried because the hunters provided our pack warriors including me and Mom some protective gear to stop the wolfsbane from hurting us and force shifting us. After I punched a rogue in the face, I saw Giovanni and he sneaked behind Mom and he was about to stab her but, I saw red and I charged at him with my sword at the ready.
I dashed towards him and when he raised his right arm to stab Mom, I swung my sword sideways and then his arm came clean off. Giovanni was shocked and horrified before he screamed in pain. I glared at him angrily as the smoke cleared because I was mad as hell right now.
"Hello Giovanni, remember me?" I asked in a disgusted tone.
Giovanni held his sliced off arm close to his chest before he looking at me. He was shocked when he saw me and he mumbled.
"It's you... you're that brat who escaped from us 8 years ago!"
"Heh, I'm not a brat anymore am I?" I asked him before kicking him in the face.
"I've waited a long time for this. I had nightmares ever since I escaped from you and your rogue pack. But, now that you're here, I can finally pay you back after what you put me through!" I shouted before I kicked his side and stomping on his head.
"Ahh! get off me you stupid girl!"
I moved my foot off his head and then I grabbed him by the collar and I pulled him close to me.
"I would love to kill you right here and now but, you've got some explaining to do."
"I don't know what you're talking about."
"Don't play dumb with me! I know that you're up to your old tricks and you're working for a vampire who was supposed to be sealed away!"
"How did you...?"
"That doesn't matter! you're done for! now spill the beans!"
"I'll never talk! and you can't make me!"
"Heh, oh yes I can!"
I shouted before I grabbed his head with my free and I searched through his memories. I searched and searched until finally I found the one where he met Lord Siruz.
"Who are you?"
"My name is Siruz, I was once a powerful vampire King but thanks to those hunters, I'm no longer the King nor am I powerful now."
I was surprised because Shane's theory was right. Siruz did slpit his soul in half and now it's taken over someone's body but the question was; who's body is he using?
"Is that so? then why do you smell like a werewolf?"
"Because this body once belonged to a young werewolf and now it's mine."
"I see that explain it, but, why are you telling me this?"
"Because I need your help. Before I was sealed, I found a prophecy that was said that I would be destroyed one day by a reaper demon. But, not just any reaper demon, this one is special and it said that he or she would one day stop me from taking over the world," Siruz explained to him.
"Reaper demon? but, aren't those guys extinct?"
"Not yet. They're either hiding or they're hybrids which makes it impossible for me to track them down. I need your help to find the reaper demon that was destined to stop me and then I will kill him or her myself."
'So that's why Giovanni attacked my pack and Xander's pack, they were searching for a reaper demon but they don't know which one is supposed to stop him.'
I thought to myself before Giovanni asked him.
"If I may ask, who's body are you using?"
"This body once belonged to a young Alpha but his pack was attacked and destroyed by the Dark Fate pack. Besides..."
Siruz came out the shadows and I was shocked when I saw his face because it was all too familiar.
"The pack that I speak of is the Black Pride pack."
I shouted in a shocked tone before I released Giovanni. I took a few steps back with a shocked expression on my face.
"What's the matter Serena? you look like you've just seen a ghost."
"I think I just did..." I mumbled before Giovanni chuckled.
"I get it now..."
I looked at Giovanni as he slowly stood back onto his feet.
"Siruz mentioned that he was looking for a special reaper demon. He told me there was royal blood line who was the original race and then there was the second generation of the reaper demons. I assume you're the second generation...that explains how you were able to escape from me all those years ago...you were right underneath my nose this whole time and I didn't even know it."
I growled angrily before I grabbed him by the throat.
"Where is he?! where can I find Shawn?!"
"Shawn? you mean that guy who's body got taken control by Siruz? I have no idea where he is, he comes and goes as he pleases and that's the truth."
"Kill him! kill him now!!" Aoi shouted and she didn't needed to tell me twice.
"Thank you for the info. Now all this fighting has made me hungry."
Giovanni looked at me confused before I let my demon powers take over and then I devoured his soul. Giovanni screamed in pain while the rogues and the vampires watched in horror. After I ate his soul, Giovanni's body had rotted away. I dropped his body and I cringed at the taste of his soul.
"Uck! *spit! spit!* Dude, what kind of cologne do you use and...how tainted was your soul?" I mumbled as I continued to spit out the bad taste.
"Hehe, it's bad now but, once you get used to eating tainted souls they won't taste bad," Mom spoke with a smile.
The rogues and vampires made a run for it and our pack warriors were about to chase after them but, I stopped.
"No, let them go."
"They gave up the fight now that their leader is dead. But, follow anyway to make sure they leave the pack grounds."
"Yes Alpha," The pack warriors told me before they followed after the enemies.
I glanced at Giovanni's dead body and I couldn't help but remember the last time I saw Shawn before we were separated. Mom came over to me and she asked me.
"Serena, what did you see?"
"Siruz and Giovanni meeting for the first time. Siruz mentioned about a prophecy about a reaper demon who would one day destroy him which it explains why those two were working together and why some of the neighbouring packs' warriors were being taken away from their homes. I don't know who he or she is but, there's something else."
"I know the person that Siruz is using. He was an old friend of mine and he was going to be the Alpha of the Black Pride pack. His name is Shawn."
Mom's eyes widen in shock and then she asked me.
"Do you know where he is?"
"No, I'm sorry. Giovanni spoke the truth that he doesn't know where Siruz is."
"I see, you did well Serena. Come on, let's head back and tell the others."
I nodded my head before we headed back to the packhouse. I couldn't believe that my childhood friend Shawn is alive all this time and I didn't even know it. If I were to see him face to face, would he still recognise me or is Siruz's control over his body is too strong that he longer remembers me?
