Killjoy just sat there as she narrowed her eyes at the statement of destroying what's inside of her "were it so easy..." she whispered as she stood up stretching and popping her neck. "It's a start though." Luna looked puzzled "what do you mean it's a start?" She asked. Killjoy looked at Luna "he isn't as strong as me, but he can use his teleporting and speed a lot better to make up for it. I still have the advantage in strength and possibly combat experience. Though the speed will be troublesome. Maybe equal, but in our own ways. Guess he will want that sparring match soon then." She said with an annoyed sighed. Luna giggled a little "it's surprising how many look up to you, how many strive to be as strong as you, it's quite inspiring." She said with a smile. "Though you might want to keep him on watch for a little bit." She said now seriously. Killjoy nodded "yeah, the taste of great power is more potent than any drug or drink. I saw the greed in his eyes...the corruption the power brings. He's going to have to learn that with such physical strength, your mind has to be equally so."

"It's the Vengeance that's consuming him too. Ever since he watched your other self kill his comrades, he felt a sense of uselessness, being useless to protect them. He told me he never wanted to feel like that again, at any costs." Tavi said shakily. 

 

Later that day, Oakly walked back into the cabin, he had just went the spring again and washed off the days chores. He noticed the bedrooms door was closed, "Went to bed early eh? Fair enough, feeling sleepy myself too." He sighed as he put on on dry pants and lay down on the makeshift couch. He started to drift off to sleep when heard a noise and looked up to see Spring twittling her thumbs nervously with rosy cheeks, "Its... a little cold in my room..... could you maybe.... come sleep in my bed.... with me....?" She stuttered shakily. Oakly starred in shock, wondering what kind of punishments Killjoy would dream up with if she knew any of this. He swallowed nervously and nodded straightly, "Yeah, sure." Spring turned to head in and Oakly followed, he then quickly went to grab a shirt but felt a hand grab his wrist, "It's alright.... I don't mind...." She told him softly. Oakly went bright red as he looked at her, 'SHE'S SO CUTE!', he thought to himself as he followed her into the room and closed the door. She lay down on one side while he went to the other, as they got settled in, Oakly turned the opposite way screaming internally. 'If Killjoy found out about this she'd skin me alive!' He thought fearfully. By midnight, The two were cuddling together in their sleep.

 

The morning sun brought in a tired Trax, looking as though he'd been wrestling with the wildlife all not long, carrying a freshly killed boar on his shoulders. "Breakfast." He said as he set the boar on the butcher table in front of Stryker, who wore a green apron. Trax just lazily gave him a thumbs up and turned around, "By the way, if ya had a werewolf problem before, you don't anymore." He added as he walked away. Stryker watched him go as he began to prepare the boar by muscle memory, even without looking. Trax slowly made his way to the little room he'd been sleeping in and fell into his makeshift bed, sleep quickly taking hold of him. Kasey and Tavi watched from the doorway, "Is he going to be alright?" Kasey asked with a hint of concern. Tavi sighed, "I've known him for over 24 years, and I'm still trying to figure him out. Just don't show him where the mead is."

 

Viola hung down from the ceiling behind an unsuspecting Father Shade, "PEEKA-BOO!" She yelled excitedly in his ear.

Suddenly a woodcutter's axe fell on the floor with a thud besides Trax. "Get up, you have chores to do since you insist on staying here, you have duties, or have you already forgot?" Killjoy said sternly and completely unforgiving. "It's your turn today to chop the firewood, we need wood to roast the boar you spent all night to obtain." Now mockingly "this is non negotiable, I'll be back in five minutes, be ready." She said walking off to make sure everyone is doing their part.

 

Shade gasped as he grasped above his heart as he quickly looked back "dear, don't do that, my old heart can't take such surprises." He said with a chuckle "your classes aren't until an hour from now, what are you doing here so early?" He asked softly.

Trax let out an exhausted sigh, too tired to argue and knew it'd be a waste of what little energy he had left to ignore her. Tavi and Kasey had went their separate ways when Killjoy came, Trax stood up with the axe and lazily made his way outside again. "I wish I had a drink..."

 

Viola dropped down and shrugged her shoulders, "I just wanted to ask a little question. Like, when am I gonna go on a mission or something? Also did big brother Oakly awaken his ability here? Kasey found out his during the army," She chuckled, "He doesnt use it much cause he doesn't want to rely on it, but its awesome! He can create these spheres of wi-" Kasey placed a hand over Vi's mouth quickly, "It's nothing special really, just a little magic trick." He said humbly. Vi pulled his hand down and frowned, "Little magic trick? Your bedroom wall begged to differ." She said grumpily. Kasey sighed, "Listen to Father Shade and no more scaring people, understand?" Vi nodded reluctantly before she broke free of her brothers grasp and ran off. Kasey glanced Father Shade, "Hows she doing?"

"she's doing well, a little impatient, but that's with all children her age. She's still only a child so I'm keeping everything simple, though soon I think she will have to learn that her ability is not for pranks and games, Though forgive and old man's curiosity, but she mentioned your ability and you seem to want to hide it, would you be so kind to let me witness your magic trick? This is my profession after all." he asked softly.

 

"Yes Kasey, show us this magic trick since you clearly avoided getting your tasks for this morning." Killjoy said crossing her arms. "If your father has to do chores, so do you."

Kasey sighed reluctantly and held out his right hand, palm up, "Fair warning, I haven't been able to fully control it yet." He warned them as he started to focus on the palm of his, at first a small sphere of wind formed in his hand, then grew larger till it was the size of a soccer ball. "Its a sphere of concentrated wind, strong enough to blast through rock, and if formed right it... cut through steel. First time was when I got angry during training for the army, and put my Captain in the hospital by accident. Turns out him being former Black Ops was what helped me get recruited, who knew." He said as he tried to minimize the sphere, but only for it to fly up into the ceiling and spill dirt all over him. "I've little training on it, I just don't want to start relying on my ability to overcome obstacles, and use my own strength."

"Your ability IS your own strength, it's a part of you, it happened because your mind focused on what you wanted most. To deny it will only drag you down. You've made it this far without having to use but what happens when it's needed, you never tried to control it so how can you trust it when there comes an obstacle where it leaves you no other choice but using your ability. You need to learn to control it." Killjoy said brushing the dirt of her shoulders.

 

Shade nodded "she's right, you may have live with a noble life style, but there WILL be a time where you will need your ability to push through the toughest problems." He point to Killjoy "Lady Red would never have got this far on mere normal strength alone. Plus she would be a vampire by now if it weren't for her ability." He said softly. "Take pride in your ability, it's what makes you...well you. Our abilities is what makes us strong, strong to protect the weak, and destroy the ones that seek only destruction." Killjoy explained.

Kasey nodded, understanding the situation, "Right, then I should start training right away. I need to be strong, strong enough to protect my Family."

 

Oakly blinked his eyes open as the morning sun seeped into the room from the window, he froze up in shock as he starred upon Springs face only inches from his, his arms wrapped around her and their legs entangled. Then he noticed something off, her hair was Darker. 'Hazels awake.' He went red as she started to wake up. Hazel opened a blood red eye then closed it, suddenly both eyes flew open and pushed Oakly onto his back as she strattled him on top. Oakly, still red in the face, was now wide in panic. Hazel leaned down pressing closer to him, her face again only inches from his. "What do you think Killjoy would do if she found out about this hmm?" She asked mischievously. Oakly threw on a face of annoyance, "Now you're just being un-fair." He lit up his hand with a little sparking, Hazel squeaked and jumped back. "Thats what I thought." Oakly chimed before he caught a pillow to the face.

Killjoy left to check on everyone else, as she made her through one of the halls, she felt a sudden dizzy feeling as her vision went blurry and spinning. Killjoy help her head unsure what was going on with her until everything suddenly stopped as the hallway went dim as it were the middle of night. "wha...?" she said as she took a step forward, but stopped as she heard whispers everywhere. She looked around trying to see where the whispers were coming from, though it was in vane. "whose there, come out." she called out. Nothing came to meet her as the whispers grew louder where she could understand some of the words "Murder, Kill, Destroy, maim." the whispers cried to no end. Killjoy grit her teeth knowing that its just illusions of her betraying mind. "This isn't real, none of this." she said to herself trying to snap herself out of it. "is it....?" a voice sounded from behind her, her own voice twisted with death and blood lust. Killjoy froze as she slowly turned her head to see her other self covered in blood as the bodies of her family laid on the floor. The darker self leaned in "It's not real now, but it will be." she said as maniacal laughter rang through the hall. "no-" Killjoy began to say. "SILENCE!" the darker self yelled as Killjoy saw the blade drive through her chest, but as it did so everything went back to normal. Killjoy quickly searched her chest for wounds, but nothing was there. She fell to her knees as her breath grew heavy and shook, it was for the very first time in years, she felt true fear. 

 

Shade looked at Kasey "so...when do you wish to start?"
