They were right there and still didn't notice her presence. So Teijal continued to hop quietly from one wooden beam to the next. This was why people always needed to look up at the ceiling when they entered a room. The vampire couldn't remember how many times she was able to just simply jump on her prey and broke their neck.
Not that Teijal did it many times as that got boring really fast. Slowly, the woman positioned herself right above them. This had to be timed perfectly so they wouldn't bring their barriers up too soon. Satisfied with her position, she threw the thin sacks of slime down at her prey.
"What the -"
Teijal laughed as she quickly jumped down and ran away, feeling magic bolts and sunbeams zip close her.
Later that evening, Teijal was on the roof with a large grin on her face. Her plan worked out perfectly. Lars and Dameon wouldn't be getting the smell out any time soon. She felt but didn't react as a not so amused human approached her.
"Yes?" She drawled, keeping her eyes on the horizon rather than turn to Rhen.
"Why did you do that?" Rhen asked exasperated. She, unlike the vampire, had to breath and the two men stunk a hundred times worst than anything she's ever smelled before. There was no way she could work with them now. Unfortunately, the vampire refused to tell them exactly what the nasty substance was.
"Because I was bored. You spend all your time with those two louts so I'm left with nothing to do."
"I was trying to improve the school and they were helping. You couldn't go torture Galahad again or do whatever vampires do when they get bored?"
"Vampires prank or eat garlic when they get bored. Since we're out of garlic, I went for pranking. Galahad's somewhere in the ocean right now. Don't like water."
"Yes, in. Don't know how he did it and don't want to know. But Rhen, you have to admit it was fun to watch your kind chase them out of the palace. Never seen them run so fast, not even with Ahriman."
Rhen shook her head though she was fighting a smile. In retrospect, it was pretty funny to watch two grown men in robes get chased out by the servants, guards, politicians, dogs, and a chicken. Apparently, no one liked their smell and seemed unusually angered at the two. Perhaps it was another side effect that Teijal didn't mention.
Fighting a smile, Rhen plop herself next to Teijal and looked up at the sky.
"What am I going to do with you?"
Teijal gently tugged at the human until Rhen was pressed against her with a head on her shoulder.
"Keep me I presume. A vampire under your command does wonders for your reputation."
Rhen smacked the other woman. "I don't care about my reputation remember? Otherwise I would have banished vampires from the realm after your kind's antics. Now I'm known as a vampire sympathizer and my subjects don't understand."
"That was a one time occurrence Rhen. It was just unfortunate that the day you invited my kind was a... holiday for my clan. Vampires can get drunk just like any other human. Sides, you did make all of them apologize, pay for the mess, as well as do 'community service' as you humans put it. Now that was a pleasure to see blackbird."
Rhen laughed remembering the five vampires cower before her when she was in full 'I'm going to rip out your liver and eat your heart' mode as Teijal called it. The vampire meanwhile was looking at her mate with a proud hungry look. They didn't get much sleep later that night.
Teijal smiled knowing Rhen wasn't going to kill her this time.
"Still. You're not off the hook vampire. Far from it."
Rhen shifted until she was over Teijal. She lifted up some handcuffs with a raised brow, her magic seeping from her hands onto the metal making them glow faintly black.
Teijal fought her smile but couldn't help it.
She loved punishments.
no intense drama. simple fluff. yeah.
