(Lol XD Yeah that's what I thought. Lol jk jk XD)

Nicholas observed Carlisle quietly as he explained, a guarded expression crossed his features. Once he had gathered the gentleman had meant no harm to Lucy, he relaxed. He crouched slightly beside Lucy and offered his hand to her "Miss Lucy, are you sure you're alright?" he asked politely, a tone of concern hinted in his voice. Airic stood by casually, seemingly bored with the situation already. He looked at Carlisle and shrugged nonchalantly "No hard feelings I'm sure." Despite his rather laid-back behavior he had casually edged his way in between Carlisle and Lucy. After all, Carlisle was new. They had no idea how he might react to having a human around, after all, even the most senior Rebel members sometimes got too close to Lucy. The Twins were quite good at their job in keeping Lucy far from the others. Certainly it was their job to do so but at the same time they both silently enjoyed her company. Although Nicholas still found himself slightly guilty having drank her blood which Crypt surely would've scorned him for. Lucy was not to be touched. Like a trophy on the shelf that the Rebel leader allowed them to see but never touch, much like the young Leo.

Crypt had dispersed the crowd of Rebels that had gathered at the door, offering them no other explanation than the situation was being handled. Despite being sent off, many of the Rebels stuck close by to watch Pyra lead the two vampire out of the palace. The palace was like a jungle full of tigers waiting for their chance to strike, eyes gleaming sharply. Crypt, however, was no where to be found. He had retreated to his office, after all, he was a busy man and couldn't spend too long on any given situation. Not to mention he didn't particularly care to face Pyra right now.

Kai kept Ellie close, eyeing the Rebels as they passed through the Palace. Despite Pyra's gentle air and helpfulness, it was clear Kai distrusted her nonetheless. After all, his experiences with the Rebels have always been a bitter one and as far as he was concerned, Pyra was no different. Yet given she had helped them, Kai held his tongue. Ellie introduced them both and that was good enough for him, afraid of what he might say dare he speak. There was still an anger that resided on the tip of his tongue, ready to lash out given the chance. He took a deep breath to try and compose himself.

[Well that's not very nice. XD A trophy huh?]

"I'm not a child." Lucy waved his hand away, relief entered her gaze as she spotted her wallet under a table not too far from where she was. She crawled towards it, being mindful enough of her skirt so that she didn't embarrass herself. Luckily it was a longer one so she didn't have much trouble, sitting back on her legs as she picked up the wallet. It hadn't opened when it hit the floor so nothing had fallen out, she was grateful. Shoving it back into her bag she used the table to stand up, wiping off any dirt that may have clung to her when she was down there. No she wasn't a neat freak, but she did care about her appearance. Her gaze shifted to the three once she felt in order, noting the way Airic positioned himself between them as if expecting something to happen. As if she couldn't handle herself. "Thank you for your help...I'm Lucy." She muttered, reaching out to shake Carlisle's hand. Just to be polite, and maybe to be a tad defiant. Carlisle smiled and took her hand gently, having to move to the side to avoid Airic. His reaction was odd, but seeing as she was human and he was new he wasn't surprised. "Carlisle. Please, allow me to pay for the bag. I feel awful that it broke due to me." He stepped back, not wanting to make the Twins uncomfortable or angry for staying too close. "No, I've been meaning to get a new one, but thank you." Lucy smiled, glancing down at her watch. If she wanted to get something to eat she would have to hurry now. "If you'll all excuse me..."

Pyra walked down the hall, eyeing the few lingering Rebels but seeing no signs of Crypt. Why am I not surprised? Such a child... Admittedly she felt slightly hurt by his actions, but she only waved them away to focus on the task at hand. Ellie and Kai weren't completely safe yet. She ushered them along, giving a warning glance at a couple of Rebels who were getting a bit too close for comfort. The Rebels would no doubt follow orders, but that hardly meant anything. A few of them didn't like Pyra for the simple fact that she was with Crypt, so she wouldn't put it past them to not care if she happened to get hurt in the midst of a scuffle. At this point she didn't even know if Crypt would care... "Lovely names..."she said softly, glancing at them for only a moment before returning her gaze to the few Rebels. "I'll take you down to the gate..." That way she could at least be sure they made it out of the vicinity. A sigh left her lips as they approached the doors, the guards on either side moving forward to open them.

Ellie stuck close to both Kai and Pyra, she may not trust her but she was the most trustworthy here. Her aura gave her no reason to not to believe her and it was in times like this that she was grateful for that ability. It made her a good judge of character, because no one could hide their darkness from her. She winced and squeezed Kai's hand, sensing his anger as if it were her own, hopefully he could stay calm enough for them to get out of here. He could be pretty hot headed at times, especially when it came to her safety.

Nicholas looked a bit wounded by her blunt dismissal, but he said nothing and simply stood back. He crept up alongside his brother, watching her quietly as she crawled across the floor. He tilted his head in a questioning manner though his silent questions were answered by the wallet she withdrew from beneath the table. He turned his attention on Carlisle, reaching out to lightly grab Airic's arm as if to hold him there. He didn't think Airic would do anything, but he also knew his brother could be a bit unpredictable at times. Airic eyed Carlisle closely as he shook Lucy's hand, as if daring him to do anything more. Nicholas nudged Airic, the twins exchanged looks, sharing a silent conversation before Airic sighed and nodded a little. His gaze shifted towards Lucy and he frowned "Where are you going at this hour?" he asked "It's getting late..." he warned. Though they couldn't very well force her to stay, they could at the very least suggest against it. After all, it was dangerous at night and if something were to happen to her they would be held responsible.

A small growl started to form in Kai's throat as one of the Rebels edged just a little too close for comfort. Yet he felt Ellie's hand squeeze his own and for the moment that was enough, his anger subsided a little. He turned his attention forward, taking a deep breath as if to try and compose himself. Though he doubted he would feel better until they were well away from here. He had distrusted the Rebels before and for good reason, but now there was a deep anger and hatred towards them. They had started picking off Nightwalkers one by one and now they had stolen Ellie away. To be perfectly honest, he wasn't entirely sure what had attracted them to her. Did they somehow know about her gifts? He shook his head a little and glanced towards Pyra, a small spark of curiosity towards her. She was a Rebel clearly, though she had been able to stand up to Crypt without repercussion so she wasn't just any ordinary one. Why help us?

Carlisle watched the trio for a moment, an amused smirk upon his lips as he dipped his head. Though he was disappointed she wouldn't let him pay for it he shrugged it off. "I should be getting some rest. You all have a good night." He said quietly and made his way around them to escape to his room. They were an interesting bunch, he'd say that much.

Lucy looked after the newcomer with curiosity as he disappeared around a corner before she looked at the Twins. They seemed oddly cold, she wasn't sure how to take it but it was for the best she supposed. It would make it easier to keep them at a distance, more specifically Airic. "Unless you want me to starve I'm going to go pick up dinner." She replied, biting back on the attitude. Airic told her himself that they didn't keep the kitchen stocked so she didn't have much of a choice in going out. Although really one would think Crypt would've been smart enough to have stocked it with at least a few things for her after she came here if he didn't want her going out at night, but he seemed too preoccupied with other things to remember that a human now lived among them. Typical. Besides she already called ahead so all she had to do was show up, pay and get her order. It wasn't like she would be out for that long, after all she wasn't a big fan of Nightwalkers. Nor was she a fan of bodyguards, but she figured Crypt had probably ordered someone to follow her around whenever she went out. Likely because he didn't trust her and not for her safety she was sure. She sighed and stepped around them, the restaurant would close if she didn't get a move on.

Pyra hurried them out the door and down the steps, pausing a moment to take a deep breath of the night air. Despite being protected by a gate and tons of Rebels she felt uncomfortable being out here though that was more due to the last time she went out alone at night and not because of the Nightwalkers. Her neck still hurt a little from where Damian had bitten her... "You two will be fine to make it home?" She asked as they made it closer to the gate, two guards moving to open it as she glanced down at the two vampires. If Kai wasn't what he was she would offer them shelter for the night, it was dangerous to be out, but she had a feeling he wouldn't let anything happen to the young lady with him. No one would come bursting into a place full of Rebels for someone they didn't deeply care about after all. She smiled to herself for a moment, glancing at the city beyond the gate. There was so much to be done tomorrow, she only hoped the Twins wouldn't be too busy to go out into the city with her. Theoretically she should be safe to go out on her own now since Damian was locked up, but...she shook her head. Now wasn't the time to think about that.

Ellie paused just outside the open gate and looked at Pyra, studying the woman for a moment. She was different from the others in the Palace, it was curious but she didn't ask any of the questions that lingered on her tongue. They would hopefully not meet again though something told her she would probably be brought back here at some point, if they caught her. "We should be fine, thank you for your kindness." She muttered politely, looking at the darkened city with a nervous gleam in her eyes. Her past adventures into the world of night hadn't been pleasant. It didn't help that an odd feeling was arising in her heart though it wasn't a negative one. Weird...she bit her lip, knowing better than to say anything in front of Pyra or the guards.

Airic and Nicholas looked after Carlisle and dipped their heads slightly in a farewell notion. The relaxed a little, after all, it was their job to make sure Lucy stayed safe. Though Carlisle didn't seem to be like the other Rebels, one could never be too careful. They turned their attention on Lucy now, Airic crossed his arms over his chest. He wasn't angry, rather being protective though he had a funny way of showing it. He opened his mouth to reply but Nicholas cut him off, likely to keep things from escalating unnecessarily. After all, it wasn't like the Palace kept food in the kitchen for humans. "Perhaps we should accompany you," Nicholas pointed out, knowing he didn't have to explain why. It was dangerous in the city, especially with the Nightwalkers lurking around. She was smart enough to know that. Airic closed his mouth again and muttered under his breath. Nicholas smiled "If that would be alright, it would put our minds at ease."

Kai seemed to visibly relax the moment they made it out the palace doors, the tension eased away. They weren't completely safe, but honestly he knew they were safer in the city at night than they were anywhere near the palace. Being a Nightwalker himself, the other Nightwalkers wouldn't likely try anything with Ellie. Besides, they far preferred to spend their energy going after the Rebels anyways. He looked back at Pyra evenly and nodded in response, they would be fine. He subconsciously ran his thumb across the back of Ellie's hand, almost in a nervous manner. "Thank you..." he said quietly, peering at Pyra. He didn't think he would ever understand this strange woman. Pleased, however, to see that Crypt wasn't almighty and powerful after all. He turned away to start heading to the city, letting out a heavy sigh.

Lucy paused as Nicholas spoke up again, pressing one slightly tanned hand to her forehead and rubbing at the smooth skin in frustration. There was nothing more that she wanted to do than to avoid them, but they were making it difficult on her. Even if she did say no she knew they were going to follow her anyway or, at the very least, have someone else follow her and she really didn't want some random Rebel stalking her into the city. Despite how distant she was acting she still trusted them more than any other vampire within this city and it wasn't easy to turn her back on them entirely. It would break her though she would do well to deny that, for now. A sigh left her lips as she ran her hand through her red hair, shaking out the long locks before she spoke. "Fine...come on..."she muttered quietly as she started walking again. The air in the Palace was oddly still though she wasn't concerned enough to figure out why, surely if something was going on things wouldn't be this quiet so she shook it off for the time being. She needed to focus because they were right, going out into the city at night was dangerous and being distracted would just make her an easier target. Not that the Twins would let anything happen to her, but she was independent and stubborn.

Ellie tilted her head as she studied the city, a thoughtful expression on her face though Kai's voice soon drew her out of her thoughts. It was the first time he's spoken since Pyra arrived so she was glad to hear it. He seemed more calm now which was reassuring, she didn't think she could handle another Miles incident any time soon. The image of him bleeding out onto the sidewalk was still burned into her mind and she couldn't help but wonder if he had survived, but after a moment she shook the thought away. She smiled at Pyra one last time before she let him pull her along, remaining silent for she wasn't sure how he was feeling. If he was upset with her. It hadn't been her fault, she hadn't wanted to go to the Palace, but maybe he thought otherwise...

Pyra watched them go with a soft smile on her lips before turning and heading back into the Palace. The guards seemed to be watching her with concern though she only offered them a gentle nod of her head as she entered the Palace. Luckily the small crowd seemed to have dispersed, a small portion of stress lifting free from her shoulders. There was still no sign of Crypt, although why she was surprised she had no idea. She rubbed at the back of her neck as she waved over a Rebel she knew didn't hate her, avoiding the young man's eye though she smiled just to be polite. "Malachai, please tell Crypt he doesn't need to mind his promise of seeing me tonight..."though she was sure she wouldn't easily get to sleep tonight, if at all, without him she figured he was too angry with her to want to see her so she would make it easy for him. A small part of her wanted to tell him to tell Crypt that he didn't have to keep his promise of taking her out into the city once she was feeling better either, but she bit her tongue before those words left her lips. That was one promise she was going to hold onto as if life itself depended on it. In silence she watched Malachai dip his strawberry blonde head and move off to find Crypt before she moved, heading towards the stairs so she could lock herself in her room for the night. Finding the Twins was the last thing on her mind now.
