[xBlackxAcex] Bloody Roses

Post by spacesgoats » Fri Jul 20, 2018 12:05 am

London, England, 1889, the ending of the Victorian Era. It is the city of life, well known for its lavish parties hosted by the rich and the urchins that scramble the streets. It is a time of wealth and dignity, where proper young ladies are required an escort and young males come to court those they desire. Fun and games, fun and games.

What many people leave out about this regal period was the creatures that also dwelled with the humans, the creatures that still roam on the earth till this very day. There is a secret society of a race with an unknown origin. They allow few outsiders into their secret world, and those that are enlighten are fated to die. It is their blood, human blood, that has allowed this race to survive throughout the years. Unknown to much of England, Vampires roam the streets.

Many wonder how this ancient race is able to function from the shadows. The Vampires have taken precautions to secure their identities. With their age and time, they have secured a small, or large, fortune for themselves allowing them to join the elite in London society. To remain hidden, many of them also have multiple estates that they relocate to with every new generation to conceal their ageless virtues. They attend the lavish parties and are familiar with the proper protocols of society to appear nothing more than a member of the elite: money, manners, and morals.

Many have come to respect the humans, some come to laugh at them, thinking of them as merely entrees to hunt and enjoy. Some feel that eternal life is a gift, others believe it to be a curse. The Vampiric society has its own system of government located beneath Big Ben where the Elders give their word. And their word is law. 

The Elder's Laws
• Humans must remain ignorant to our existence.
• All disputes will be brought before the Elders for a civil trial. 
• You may not, under any condition, create a new vampire without consent from the elders.

All of the vampires know that they walk a fine line between the shadows and the light, one wrong move could set everything ablaze. What will happen if one of the vampires of the elite begins to feels drawn to a human girl? Will he sacrifice the balance and reveal himself to her? Or will his bloodlust win control of his actions in a senseless slaughter?

"Sails, get back in here! You're missing out!" A friend called, flapping his hand. Removing his tall top hat, Kier clicked his tongue and continued to walk away from the bustling party scene to the dark outside. "I'm not well tonight. I'm going for a drink." His friend was quizzical since there was the most refined liquor inside the estate. That old tavern couldn't have better alcohol surely. "But."

Kier flicked his free hand into the air as a farewell. 'Stupid human.' He rolled his clay hues, accompanied with an exaggerated exhale. The night air was quiet; the only sound came from his black leather shoes. While he approached the small London bar, he lit a cigarette, and with a prolonged puff, he let the smoke vanish into thin air. "A rum and molasses." The request was followed by another draw of his cigarette as he unbuttoned his coat. Kier was scolded by the Elders for nearly exposing the whole Vampiric society with his recent satanic urges. 'They were beautiful specimens too.' Unapologetic, saliva pooled in his mouth from the reminisce. However, he still was in a piss poor mood, and he needed his alcohol in peace to tame his bloodlust.

Emmaline stirred softly, her mind foggy as the final wisps of sleep rolled away from her thoughts and body. She moaned, her first attempt of dragging herself from the slumbers of the night failing as she collapsed again. Mid-afternoon light streamed into her window, causing her large blue eyes blinking until adjusting to the sudden brightness. She had remained at The Rose until the early morning helping Tabitha and her uncle John with cleaning the tavern after an unusually rambunctious night of drinking and merriment. A fight had broken out, leaving beer and food spattered about the large dining room. Of course, it had been Emma required to clean the entire room. Heaven forbid Tabitha needed to lift a finger.

Eventually Emmaline found the strength to rise from bed to dress and bath before departing on her way for the remainder of the day. She lived alone in a tenant housing meant only for single women. Each female had their own study and bedroom while sharing a common living space and kitchen on the lower level. The rent was low, the conditions poor, but it was enough for the simple girl to get by with. Her room was spars, a desk and couch in the study and a bed with a single nightstand in the sleeping quarters. Her earnings from The Rose were barely enough to support herself, but she has no idea of where else she could go. Her dreams were to travel the world as a famous musical, primarily on the piano. Tabitha was quick to point out that it was exactly that, a dream. 

She found herself wandering the streets, the busy chatter comfort to her awakening mind. As dusk approached, the went to open the tavern for another night of business. Tabitha and John were already there. “You’re late, girl,” Tabby hissed from behind the counter. 

“I’m sorry, Auntie. I had some errands to run before work. No one is here yet, so I assumed-”

“Oh, just get to work, girlie,” Tabby snarled. It was obvious that Tabitha resented Emmaline for the burden that raising the girl after her mother’s death. Emma, on the other hand, felt only love and gratefulness toward her aunt and uncle. 

“Yes, Auntie,” she said softly, smiling as she grabbed a rag and began to dust the room clean. She lingered over one piece of furniture in the room, her hands light on the delicate wood. In the tavern’s corner sat the only piano that Emma had touched since her mother’s death. She would practice on it daily, a request that Tabitha had no choice but to obey. The sweet music and Emma’s voice drew many costumers to the tavern when she took a break from serving and collecting orders. She was both the entertainment and only waitress of the tavern, able to spread herself thin to preform both tasks. For her love of music, it was well worth it. Although, it was no surprise she was exhausted after a night’s work. But then an interesting male came into the tavern, someone she never seen, or maybe she has? There was so many nights in the tavern where men would come and go so there would be a variety of mixed men, and women of course, but it was mostly men. But weirdly, he caught her eye. So when he sat and went to order his drink she walked over to him and went to make his glass of liquor. She sat it down the short glass in front of him, containing the brown liquor as she looked down at him and smiled softly. "Mister, ARE you okay?" She asked, as her glistening blue eyes stared

Refilling his glass with rum, the cigarette in his mouth hung lazily. He screwed the cap back on the bottle with one hand, and Kier began his second drink. Lifting a the glass, his hand froze mid-passage, sensing an overly fragrant smell. He sniffed the rum, pursing his lips. He smoothly set the glass on the bar top baring his teeth. 'That's not it. It's sweet, flowery, mouthwatering..' Humans carried smells; some were delicious and others were pungent. One's aroma was an adequate indicator for blood quality. The tavern was not boisterous with patrons, almost desolate in fact, which was why Kier came near closing time and time again. However is nose was strongly overwhelmed. His abdominal muscles clenched while he reigned in his blood thirst. "Mister, are you okay?" A set glower was about to overtake the supernatural man's features until Kier twisted his body to investigate the mystery person. Faced with a blonde haired, blue-eyed beauty, he restrained from ravaging on her body since they weren't alone. "Ah, why's a beautiful woman, like yourself, left here on your own?"

The young Emmaline looked at the male who sat in front of her, across from her at the bar top awaiting his answer. She didn't want to seem to anxious, too needy for his answer or for small talk since, well, she didn't have time talk. Her Aunt was always watching, always scolding her so she would always be working, flirting with men for tips or more money for Aunt, or playing the piano which was the best part, and only part of being at the tavern. She had a deep feeling for music, passion for music, but she immediately stopped when her mother died, not feeling music anymore, more like she wasn't really into it anymore since she lost the passion for it. Seeing as that... No one would really hear the emotions that music, her music had to offer. But she played, for Aunt tavern, for a job, to keep in money in her household. She noticed the male locked his eyes onto her, finding her, and having all eyes and attention on her and honestly, it was something different. His aura gave off something eerie, but alluring and the way he presented himself was different then the men here. Like, he liked being alone or in his thoughts which he seemed to be in before she spoken to him.

He engaged with her though, a bit surprised, seeing as all the men that came through here was drunk and hurled at her, insulting flirting comments. He was decent, he gave her a... Compliment. She blushed a red hue across her cheeks as she stared at him for awhile before snapping back into reality with a nervous smile, holding her hands together in front of her tavern attire. It wasn't nothing too revealing, even though she did have thick white spaghetti straps over her shoulders and a short sleeve having for her shoulder blades. The under part of the dress was all white and ruffled, at the ends of the sleeves and at the ends of the dress that reached all the way at the bottom of her. And then she wore a red apron ontop of it. She slipped the notepad in the pocket of her apron as she went to respond. "I work here." She laughed softly, "You seem to want to drown in your thoughts with your liqour. Would you like more?" She smiled nervously as she laughed nervously. "Sorry, that was too deep, I mean, are you feeling well?" She smiled nervously
