“Give us all the information wewe have on this Kuran character.”
Becca settled against the kitanda and cracked her neck.
“For starters, Satstruiku is royal. His bloodline goes back to the very ancient times of King Arthur I believe. So strong and royal. His blood I mean. Very powerful, not contaminated. His family blood is one of the most powerful because of what he is.”
“So he's royal. Big whoop,” Alek said.
“Oh I meant his vampire stuff.”
“He's a vampire?!” Silver exclaimed. “Explains why he's so attractive.”
Becca quirked a smile.
“I know. His powers are also contributing factors of that.”
“What are his powers?” Ciel asked.
“Well he has the usual vampire powers; speed, agility, strength, excellent in fighting. But he has a few others. One he calls his “kiss of death”. He can choose when to use this. But when he does, he steals the souls of those on the receiving end, making them lifeless puppets of his word. He has excelled endurance and senses. But he has people-speaking. In other words, he can make anyone believe what he says.”
“That's why Tara reacted so entranced today.”
Becca looked at Alek with sad eyes.
“No it's not. Tara had a run-in with Satstruiku earlier, before she came here. She came from California. Was the only hero there. One night, she came to see her house up in flames. Her family had been trapped inside. She saw a figure standing among the bystanders. Satstruiku had been observing her for some time. He knew the only way to get her to work for him was to take away everything she had. She took several beatings each time she tried to escape. She finally broke down and became his obedient servant. After that, he was able to convince her she loved him. There was no need for her to disobey him after that.”
Becca took a sip of her drink and stretched her arms.
“How did Tara get away?”
“She was rescued. kwa a very.....dangerous person. He shares the same powers of Satstruiku along with blood bending. Tara became his warrior. And she got the same treatment Satstruiku had given. Then I found her one day. She had been sent to kill me. Since she was so far from them, I was able to lift the enchantment their powers had placed on her. She's been hiding ever since.”
“How could someone do that to her?! She's too sweet and innocent for this to be true!”
“If all this is unreal, how did he find her? They both can walk into her dreams. They are both vampires. And Satstruiku is the most dangerous. He rules the vampire race. He is capable of so many things. But that's not the worst part.”
“Unfortunately. Satstruiku has become “of age.” He's looking for someone who can feed his thirst for eternity.”
“Tara is the sacrificial lamb. He wants to turn her to a vampire to drink her blood dry.”
