Selene and Michael had been on the run since the night they had killed Viktor. The Death Dealer wasn’t happy about it, but she knew that the pair of them wouldn’t be able to handle the entire Vampire coven which would be sure to hunt them down—the Elder wouldn’t allow the murder of another Elder to go unpunished.
Together they had decided that it would be prudent to put some distance between them and their enemies, and perhaps in the process find some allies or something that would help even the odds.
“The sun’s coming soon.” Selene said looking over at Michael who was taking his turn at the wheel.
Michael nodded and took turned off at the next exit. He drove for a couple of miles before pulling into the parking lot of a Holiday Inn. He pulled to the curb. “Why don’t you get a room while I park?” He suggested quietly.
Selene gave a short nod as she opened the car door. She suppressed a growl as she walked into the hotel’s lobby… she didn’t like hotels they weren’t safe, but there wasn’t much choice.
Michael joined her as she received the key-card to their room. They quickly made their way to the fourth story room. Once inside Selene pulled the curtains shut and then sat down on the bed farthest away from the window.
Michael sat on the other bed and looked over to Selene. “So what were you saying about the Underworld?”
“I was saying that Lycans and Vampires are not the only members of the Underworld… although they tend to be more numerous.” Selene said. “There are also demons, witches and the Slayer.”
Michael looked skeptical. “Magic exists?”
“Yes, but its apparently very rare.” She said. “The demons and witches might be possible allies if we can find them and convince them to hear us out, but the Slayer is an enemy.”
“Why’s that?” Michael asked.
“The slayer was created to fight the forces of darkness, namely the ‘monsters’ such as vampires… or lycans… the slayer would probably see you as a large problem because of your status as a hybrid.” Selene said. “The slayer looks like a young girl, hardly a threat, but is quite deadly.
Michael nodded slowly.
