Chapter 39: TREATY
I swung at her womb, and snatched my hand back at the sight of her pregnant belly, the one that carries the human, vampire, wolf and lion child, all in one, of One seed, and one accord, and knew I must destroy it before the Ancients found out, and reveal themselves, which they should do, then maybe I’ll believe they exist…
§he tilted her head back, laughing so hard I couldn’t breathe, the creature that dares to attack me, no one hath ever been that bold, but this one I couldn’t take my eyes off of, and didn’t know if I wanted to.
“Ye will die if ye don’t remember, remember something ye have always thought about, something ye used to dream about!”
“Am I supposed to know what you’re talking about?”

Had I been distracted this entire time?
I didn’t care how long it took I was going to find her, and as I ran, with the speed of dark, through a 12 mile long and wide rain forest, sprinting around trees like water in curvaceous pipes, natural agility to die for, stamina out of this world, I jumped over a large row of brush, landing like a bird on my feet, flying towards the mountains…
Looking for Ķlěőpĥǻ Achieng…
