Perspective: Kashya | Summoner | Simeon’s (former?) pet.
@Buffy <3
TW: Pregnancy, violence, blood, birth and a whole lot of other weird shit

She had been waiting for the fenix for days. Even in her doubts, she had stuck around, hoping to find the blonde that she had met once before. She was free now, but how long would she have left to live if Simeon knew what she was about to do? In the cold she stood near the entrance, keeping out of sight by standing in the crowds or hide near the tall nature adorning the city with a fresh look, even if it was in all it’s nakedness. Once summer hit, the trees would blossom and leave a trail of beautiful white petals to the entrance.
Rubbing her arms she was unsure if she for once felt the cold in her life or simply felt her nerves get to her. Jerking her head from side to side she wanted to be sure not to be seen. And then she saw her. Hurrying from her hideout, she quickly ran up next to the fenix to entangle their arms like they were the best of friends, “Play along,” she commanded her nervously, heading in to the institute. “I have bad news, from Simeon. I... dont know if it’s too late,” the daemoness said, frowning a little at herself. She knew she and Buffy had come off at the wrong foot but she had to warn her. “He’s going crazy, what he’s doing is not for the benefit of the daemons, it’s his own selfish gain,” she mumbled, looking away and down to the ground. “He’s going to take Baal and do something not even Bael would smile upon - He’ll kill Baal by trying to become him,” she said, her eyes filled with disbelief. It wasnt the daemon way to do what Simeon was planning. Especially if Baal truly was bearing the holy blood like many believed. “.... where.... is he?” she then asked a little nervously.

Buffy had finally managed to convince Baal that she wanted to go out and try and at least follow up on her studies. She was wearing loose clothes, just to hide the bump, and yet she felt like she was being watched anyways. Baal had promised to set up the nursery in the mean time, at least before he headed out to meet his sister. She still found it hard to wrap her head around. Reaching the institute didn't take long from where they were living now. It was not much different than the walk from the apartment, and Buffy had insisted on walking. For a day in January, it was quite mild, but she had taken her precautions and worn warm clothes. As she was about to enter, she felt an arm in her own, smiling at first because she thought it was Nelinha greeting her, but as she turned her head, all color was stripped from her face. The daemon commanded her to play along, making Buffy nod a bit carefully, and she kept walking. When there was talk of a warning, the fenix frowned in confusion. Why would someone who was Simeon's pet come to warn her or even Baal? Had the woman taken pity on her since the last time when they met? The mention of Baal getting killed made her swallow hard, her body trembling a bit in fear. "He ... He should be at home, at least until around mid day?" she stumbled over her words. She looked at the daemon by her side, seeing how nervous she acted. Was she not under Simeon's control anymore? "Why are you telling me this? I thought you were all loyal to Simeon?" she asked, feeling confused and worried. Perhaps they should turn around. She felt like running home and embracing her daemon, just to make sure he was safe. But was she being followed as well?

Kashya had to know that the fenix wouldnt trust her fully. Not after their first impression, but afterall, she had just been doing her job. For all she knew, the fenix could have shunned her and sent her away but it seemed that what she was telling her was enough to seem reliable. “He cant be there. If there’s anyone in else your apartment, they need to leave imediately,” she said when Buffy said Baal would be home. But they daemons hadnt found out just yet that the couple had moved away from the apartment. Either way, she seemed more keen on giving out information rather than havresting it. The question made her pinch her lips, her eyes conflicted for a moment to then reach determination, “I am loyal to my race and my god. What Simeon is planning shouldnt be allowed. Our god choose who will be his children and who will not, Simeon is putting himself above the blessing he has been given by Bael himself,” she said, looking around shortly before looking at Buffy again. “I wont live long with the information that I have. My defiance has been noted a long time ago,” she mumbled when she seemed to realize that there was only one way for her at this point. “I’m giving you a chance to help those you love,” she then said, looking around once more as her paranoia seemed to get the best of her.

The apartment? Buffy felt her heart sink, because it dawned on her that the daemon's hadn't figured out they had moved yet. Nodding she shot Xander a text, one that was written in a way that he knew it was important, if not vital, that he and Aiden got as far away from the apartment as possible. She hoped they would go somewhere safe, perhaps hide out at Aiden's mother for a while. She took a trembling inhale, her body shaking a bit in fear, but as she got the reply from Xander she felt relieved. They weren't even home, and as he wrote they wouldn't be so until late. It made her relax more, but even so she felt confused. The daemoness beside her explained her loyalty, making Buffy frown, but nod. The way the daemon seemed out of it worried her. "Defiance?" she mumbled under her breath. She felt bad for the daemon, placing a hand on her arm as they walked, however nothing she could say would soothe the pain. "Thank you," she said in a sad voice, taking her phone and writing a simple message to Baal. One that she knew he would recognize in an instance. A simple word they had decided was a code word for something bad happening; Sunny. It was strange how that had came to be their word, but it was the least noticeable word for anyone to read in to.

“Simeon has been following his own rules for too long,” Kashya admitted, looking down at the ground. She barely seemed to react to Buffy’s hand on her arm except glancing at it shortly. She kept their pace fast but not noticeable or out of the ordinary. Drawing attention to them was the last thing she wanted. “Is there some other way out than the main entrance?” She asked in a hasty tone, feeling like a thousand eyes were on them, though when she looked around no one was looking. But just because she couldnt see them didnt mean they werent there. “Simeon probably had you followed. Or someone here waiting for you to resume your studies. He’s always been keen on keeping tabs. You cant be here. He’ll use you to get to him,” she then explained, frowning deeply.

[Baal:] Come home.

Buffy felt her heart in her throat as they walked. "There's an unofficial exit by the science buildings," Buffy said under her breath. She didn't like this one bit, and as she saw the message from Baal she worried even more. She wanted him to call her, and tell her that everything was fine; that he had just finished setting up one of the small wardrobes that had proved more difficult. However she knew that she had to go home. Pulling the daemon with her, making it look like they were taking a stroll before class, she turned around the corner of a building. "I don't think I can run in my current state," she whispered hastily. It wouldn't be good for her nor the baby to run at this point, but perhaps that would sound more suspicious. "You've already done so much ... But do you think you could create a decoy so that I could get out of here unnoticed?" she pleaded. If she could get a head start, she might be able to lose those that followed her.

She missed the whisper but either way, she had a hard time believing that the fenix would outrun any daemon that had been assigned to follow her. Buffy’s plea made her frown. Even though she knew she wouldnt make it, didnt mean that she was willingly going to give herself up like that. “I.... dont really have a choice,” she mumbled, closing her eyes for a second. She let go of Buffy to let her go ahead before walking to a firealarm. Holding her breath she cracked the glass and pressed the button, sending a high pitched warning tone coursing through the echoing halls. The noise was unbearable for most and the sole monent of surprise would allow the fenix to slip out unnoticed. It took a few seconds for the alarm to be shut off and Kashya hoped that Buffy had spent her moment wisely.

The daemon agreed to help her, more than she already had. As the fire alarm went off, Buffy managed to slip by a few people running an exiting the institute before hopefully getting noticed. Spitting a taxi, she managed to skip to it, opening the door and getting in before saying the address, and then she was off. Had anyone noticed her? She worried, not only because the taxi driver could be one of them. She felt paranoid, and as she got to the house she walked as fast as she could to the house, stepping in. “Belial!” She called out, praying that he was here and that he was safe. Walking further in to the house she felt her heart beat faster and faster.

When they had agreed on their code word it hadnt occured to him that eventually it would be used and he would feel a sheer of panic at just the sight of it on his screen. He knew it would have been better to text her that everything was fine but he wasnt exactly well versed in comforting words once his worry set in. His focus was completely taken from assembling the item for the nursery. Standing up, he just looked at his phone counting the minutes. If she wasnt home in at least 15 minutes, then he felt he had no other choice than to go out and search for her himself.
It didnt take long before he heard her enter and call for him, hurrying out to greet her in his safe embrace. Feeling confused and worried he held her close to him, “I’m here,” he mumbled in assurance, kissing her scalp in lazy small kisses before inhaling her soft notes of lavender, “What’s going on Buffy? Speak to me,” he said as worried as he looked.

As she saw him, her eyes welled up, entering his embrace and hugging herself close. She could feel her body shake, feel how scared she really had been, but it wasn't over. Of course it wasn't, because sadly it had just begun. Buffy managed not to break down crying, mostly because he kept kissing her hair, as well as holding her tight. As he pleaded for some explanation, she sighed, leaning her face away to look up at Baal. She had been so scared, scared to lose him or for them to catch her and see what was hiding under her clothes. "The ... The woman that helped Simeon when they tested me ... She found me before I even entered the Institute," she explained, her voice hoarse, and her heart beating away in her throat. She could feel how her fingers were clutching on to the back of his shirt, not really willing to let go of him when she felt so afraid. "She warned me ... About Simeon and what he has been doing," she whispered, still quite flustered, but through that she managed to recall everything that the daemoness had told her. How Simeon had seemed to stray from his real purpose, how he was going out of Bael's orders and last but not least, how he was planning on becoming Baal. Buffy heaved for breath after having spoken for so long, and she found herself finally done. From her eyes fell a couple of tears, mostly because she was worried, however also sad. The daemoness had helped her escape, and Buffy didn't even know her name. She didn't know of the woman's life or what she was really like, however she knew that she was grateful for the actions she had done. "Belial, I don't know what to do; I don't know if someone saw me and followed me - I just wanted to get home to you, and I can't run, and the baby and ... And ... And," she spoke fast, clearly leaning on the edge of hysterical as she was shaking.

He just kept her close and tried his best to calm her down, stroking her back in soft motions as he kept kissing her hair. He had no idea what had happened and his worries were wandering in all the wrong places. He feared the worst, asking her what had happened. He looked at her as she leaned away, his eyes begging her to tell him what it was that had shaken her so. He listened to her as she spoke, nodding as he seemed to understand, "Kashya," he mumbled with a serious expression. He kept stroking her back letting her explain at her own pace, though her words didnt give him a direction for what to think - Except the fact that Simeon was up to something.
He cupped her face as he saw the tears, removing them gently with his thumbs as he looked at her with sad eyes. "Just... breathe," he said as calm as he could. He knew it was a lot to ask for after what she had been through but he wanted to try anyway. Looking into her eyes, he pinched his lips as he thought of what to say, anything which would help her calm could be nice. "We'll think of something together, alright?" he said, frowning a little sad at her when he felt like he wasnt helping much. He let go of her cheeks to wrap his arms back around her. "Whatever it is that he's planning, we'll stop it," he said, kissing her temple while his arms held her as close as he could without squishing her.

Baal held her in his arms, making her feel more safe, and as she had told him everything, she just stood, heaving for air as the fear kept crawling around her veins. He removed her tears, and she looked at him as he instructed her to breathe, nodding as she tried. Taking in slow deep breaths, holding it for a while before exhaling seemed to work. He pulled her closer once more, and she hid her face in his chest. His words more comforting than he probably thought. "How will we do that? I can't be of much help," she whispered. She felt helpless. She wasn't some great fighter or even a great protector. All she was, was a fenix who had given her everything to the one she loved, and she had hoped it would have been enough. A bang was heard, and she made a jump in pure surprise, turning around to see Alyssa standing in the hallways.

Blood was dripping down the empusa's arm, dripping on the floor as she had a crazed look in her eyes. "I hate to break up a happy couple, but there are some more important things to attend than romantic endeavors," she said, looking at her brother. She made a small whistle, three empusas stepped through the door. "They will keep her safe and away from Simeon - They are sworn to me, and now sworn to your ... Fenix," she said. One of the woman grabbed Alyssa's arm, looking worried as she tried to tend to her arm. Alyssa shook her head, pulling her arm to herself. "We haven't got time, come with me now to the temple - I'm done with Simeon playing his games," she said through gritted teeth.

“You’re smarter than you give yourself credit for,” he argued in a calm tone, but before they could say or do anything more, Alyssa arrived. His eyes fell to her bleeding arm making him frown a little before he shook his head at her words, “I wish it was simple endeavors,” he mumbled, running his hand down Buffy’s back. The three empusa’s stepping in wasnt something he was comfortable with but he had to trust his sister’s words - Or at least trust that she wanted to overthrow Simeon more than she’d want to harm Buffy. He looked down at Buffy when Alyssa said it was time to go. He didnt like being away from her, but so far he knew nothing of what plans Simeon may have had, and Buffy had only given him limited information. “You’ll be safe,” he told the fenix, kissing her forehead. “We have our bond,” he mumbled on her skin, but it was more like he was trying to comfort himself.

Baal kept holding her, and Buffy wished he would never let her go. That he wouldn't have to leave and that all of this was just one big nightmare that her mind had concocted. She didn't like the fact that three empusas stepped in, and she didn't even know if she could trust Alyssa at this point. The scent of blood made her nauseous, frowning as she tried to ignore it. As Baal kissed her forehead she closed her eyes for a while, listening to his words before she took his hand, guiding it to the bump between them. "And you'll return to me ... To us," she pleaded in a soft voice. She knew he couldn't promise her that, but she wanted him to anyways. "I love you," she whispered, wanting nothing to be left unsaid as she leaned up to kiss him gently.

Alyssa groaned, a bit from the pain but also from watching this display of love. "Yes yes ... Now can we please get on with it?" she said in an annoyed voice, walking towards the door. She knew that if they didn't hurry, then Simeon would find out where she was, and he would know that Baal was within close proximity. She led the way down to a black car, motioning with her head for Baal to get in. "I am taking this fight to Simeon, he'll regret ever laying a claim on me," she mumbled as she got in, wrapping her bloodied arm in some gauze that laid in the passengers seat. Another daemon was driving the car, but he was definitely not empusa, rather a pureblood.

He looked down at his hand on the bump, nodding at her words. “Of course I will,” he assured her, running his thumb over the fabric of her shirt. He clenched his jaw a little at her words because it felt bittersweet. Like he might not make it back. The thought made him uncomfortable. “I love you too,” he whispered, swallowing hard as he looked into the green eyes with the flame behind. Alyssa spoke again and he kissed Buffy’s forehead one last time before he followed his sister. He looked back at the house before getting into the car. “What happened to your arm?” He asked instead of wanting an elaboration on what her mumble meant. He didnt know of any claim that Simeon had laid on anyone, but then again wasnt it too surprising that he hadnt kept up with the gossip flowing around the daemons. He made a deep sigh as he looked at her hand, grabbing it before he looked at her with serious eyes, “It wont hold in the blood if you dont fold it right,” he just said before unwrapping her hand to then wrap it as he meant it should be wrapped. It wasnt really a sign of affection, she just wouldnt be much use to her own cause if she bled herself to exhaustion.

Buffy watched as they left, and the three empusas started cleaning up the mess that Alyssa had made on the floor. The fenix decided to walk to the kitchen, one of the daemons following her like a shadow. It wasn't exactly a nice feeling, as it made her rather weary of everything she did. She wrapped her arms around herself, closing her eyes as she tried to calm her nerves. Buffy could feel her body wanted to cry, she wanted to just get the emotions out, but it was like she couldn't because Baal wasn't there. Her shoulders were shaking, eyes watering as she tried to hold herself together. All she needed to do was hold on to the hope she had. Not to waver in her belief that he would come back to her, and that he would return safely.

Alyssa growled under her breath as the gauze wasn't too cooperative, and Baal's question didn't exactly do anything. "There's power in blood," she said in a serious voice, sighing and breathing through her nose. "And because we are children of Bael, we possess something stronger than any other; And some fucker decided to get some of mine for a ritual that Simeon is planning," she said in a disgruntled voice. As he grabbed her hand she frowned, looking at him with a confused gaze. His words sounded almost comforting, or at least like he didn't want her to continue straining herself. Something she had never been shown before. He wrapped her arm, sighing as she looked out the window as they drove. "You need to know one thing; I want to kill Simeon," she said in a firm voice. Perhaps it was obvious, but she had nothing left for that summoner. "I don't care if you want to be the leader after he dies, all I want if for him to suffer for what he did to me," she said.

He nodded at her explanation but he couldnt simply sit by and watch her do an improper wrapping of her arm. He took over and kept his focus on that, making sure it would sit nicely around her arm. He nodded again when she assured him of her purpose. He raised an eyebrow at her, tilting his head a little, “You must really hate him,” he said in a neutral tone, letting her have back her arm. “But I dont disagree,” he said with a sigh, leaning back to look out the window. “If he finds out that Buffy is pregnant, he will take the child and kill her. I cant risk that happening,” he said, mumbling the last part before he frowned a little absentminded. He knew he had told Buffy that they would figure it out together and he didnt like the fact that he was just running off and leaving her behind like some damsel in distress. But with her stomach showing, even as little as it was, bringing her was too risky. Didnt make him feel less like he was feeling though and it showed.

When Alyssa's arm was released she pulled it to her body, inspecting the nicely bound gauze. She was not one to get sentimental, that part of her had been ruined a long time ago. "I didn't always hate him," she muttered when Baal fell silent again. "I actually believed I loved him at one point, why else would I marry him?" she said. She had never really disclosed what her and Simeon's relationship was, but when it was coming to an end, she could just as well tell her only brother about this. Taking a deep breath she looked outside. "I was perhaps stupid enough to believe that he loved me back, but all he wanted was power - He hoped that he could breed on me and make a powerful child; too bad the bastard is sterile," she said, frowning as she didn't like talking about it. "And as he found that out, he blamed me - every time I got a lover, he would make sure to harm them until I had no love left in me; and empty shell that he wanted to manipulate," she explained, shaking her head. Gritting her teeth, she couldn't help but smile a bit. "He just didn't see that I was not going to bend to his will, so he instead focused on making everyone around him as miserable as himself," she said taking a sharp inhale. She could feel the cut on her arm was about to heal.

He was surprised to hear her tell him all this information. A part of him wondered if she felt like she had needed someone who would listen, even if she tried to tell herself otherwise, or if it was just to fill out the otherwise silence that was. He didnt know what to say, she had never spoken up about something as serious as this. He sighed. “I dont know if killing him makes a wrong right. There must be method to the madness of what he’s doing, the forced marriages and controlled births,” he said with a shrug. “It’s absurd in every sense, it takes the humanity from us when we’ve been gifted the ability to feel as well as others,” he said with his brows furrowed in a pondering state. “I’m sorry for what you have been through with Simeon,” he then said before he felt like he had discarded her whole story. Looking down at his hands doing a little fiddling, it was clear he wasnt very good at this - Bonding. Or even really conversing about sentimental things with people that werent Buffy. Once it had been only Daniel, but he didnt want to talk to the lycan if he could avoid it. “So your son isnt his?” He then asked, thinking that the boy had looked a lot like Simeon. But maybe that was purposefully.

Alyssa couldn't agree more, that Simeon was trying to control something that should be free for everyone. Of course she understood the power a summoner had, but if they were contained, dangerous things could happen. The only reason why Simeon had been in control for so long was because of his powers. She scoffed at his question. "Don't pity me, Belial," she said in a firm voice. She was only telling him this so he knew what claim she had. She didn't care if killing Simeon didn't bring her the peace of mind she wanted, but she would at least not give up the chance to see the man squirm. "Like I would let that sorry excuse for a man touch me," she mumbled, shaking her head. She took a deep breath as she bit her lip. She should've told him a long time ago, but it was safer to keep the child hidden, and Simeon had played along, proudly claiming the son as his own. "Of course it isn't his son, that kid is my only piece of heaven in this world - I would never be able to love something that Simeon had made," she confessed. She knew it sounded harshly, but she hated him for what he had done. "Belial, I know you probably think back to our past and is disgusted by it," she said, frowning as she looked at her arm. He had been one of the only people at some point that she had ever turned to, even if it was purely based on attraction. "But know that I never controlled you; Not once did I force you to do anything that you didn't want, even if that is what you tell yourself," she said. She was cruel, that was true, but it was like she couldn't show the same twisted behavior towards her own blood. "I am a good mother, I have taken care of him, raised him with the only love I had left in me, and it's because he's yours," she finally confessed.

He just listened as she went on to explain that Simeon wasnt the father. Frankly he was surprised, but not nearly enough as he would be in a bit. He had seen the kid a few times, a young boy that had looked like he was just up to nothing good. But before his mind could wander further on his opinion on the boy, she spoke and nonetheless about their past encounter. “Only because you knew and you never said anything,” he argued with a frown, meaning their blood-relation. She had knowingly gone into offering them both relief when she knew all along - It could spin around in circles and give him a headache eventually. He looked down when she said she hadnt ever forced him to anything. That was true, but he couldnt help but not feel nauseated. Back to the child again, he began to wonder the shifts of topics till she finished her sentence with words he hadnt ever hoped to hear. He’s yours rang in his head a few times, his eyes darkening as his eyes fell down and the sheer surprise was written all over his expression. “He’s my son?” He asked but he wasnt sure he wanted the answer. Running a hand through his hair he clenched his jaw for a second. What was he supposed to tell Buffy when she found out? He couldnt hide such a thing, he knew that. He looked up at Alyssa with a frown before shaking his head. He begged in his mind that it was just a cruel joke. “Does he know? That I’m his father?” He then asked with a more serious tone.

Alyssa gritted her teeth, mostly because she knew he was right, but he knew of his supposed heritage. He could've made a choice to stay safe, however she knew she might've withheld some information. However Baal hadn't been ready to hear everything, and she knew he probably still wasn't, so she would keep as much to herself as she could. Baal took his time digesting what she had just confessed, looking out the window as he asked if it was true. She just nodded, a bit absent minded, but it was mostly because she never had wanted to tell him. That boy was all she had, he was her everything. "I might be scheming, but I've never lied to him; He knows the truth, but he also knows that you're nothing more than a sperm donor," she said, looking at Baal. "He's my son, and even though he has some of your DNA, that doesn't make you his father," she said in a warning tone. She loved her son, loved him as much as her broken heart allowed her to, and having him had healed her in so many ways. It had brought her senses back, made her able to feel something, and she could still remember holding him for the first time. How his beautiful green eyes looked in to hers and his hand reached up to her face. She had known then that he would be the one to hold her heart and keep it safe. "So don't get any ideas, your fenix doesn't have to know if you don't want her to; He's a smart kid, and I've provided for him since he was born, so I know my son when I tell you that he can keep his lips sealed," she said in a serious voice. She could see they were nearing Raleska now, the temple would be up ahead, and she felt her nerves setting in, but it was a good type of nerves.

He made a deep sigh and nodded when she confirmed that the boy knew. He placed his elbows on his knees before holding his own head. Even if he was only just a donor in their eyes, it was still his dna and blood walking around. He wasnt exactly too bothered by it but the thought of Buffy shunning him or think of him as something disgusting was haunting him. “I cant just keep a secret like that from her when she’s carrying the child I’m going to have with her,” he argued, gritting his teeth a little. He looked up and frowned, shaking his head. “Cant get sidetracked now. Whatever scheme Simeon is planning, we have to end,” he then said, stepping out of the car as he looked at the temple. He felt his hair rise on his neck but he figured not being scared in a situation like this would be a mistake. He still had no idea what it was that Simeon was doing but it clearly wasnt anything good.

Alyssa didn't care what Baal told his little girlfriend, because it wouldn't change anything in her life. Or in her son's life for that matter. It would however be up to the two males to figure out if they even wanted a relationship, but that wasn't really something she was worried about right now. As soon as they entered Raleska she felt her body readying itself, tensing and twitching a bit as her muscles were going over her basic movements. She already had some empusas set up around the temple on the inside, as well as some pureblood and cambion stationed around the area, just for safety measures. They didn't need to take it outside, but Alyssa was willing to go further than anything to stop Simeon. He had gone too far, and it was her job to tell him that, as well as take his life. He was a traitor, he had rejected the teachings of their god and now he was fair game. "For safety reasons," she said, looking in to Baal's eyes for a second or so. "If anything goes wrong, you need to call my name, and my empusa will come running to help you," she instructed him before moving inside the building, walking down one of the many staircases leading them underground. "He should be close to the altar," she said. The altar was where they offered things to Bael, a rather spiritual place for every daemon.

The temple was surrounded and Baal wouldnt think that anything could go wrong. It seemed too good of a prediction to be true though. They didnt know what Simeon was doing inside, but Baal could almost feel the empowerment of sacrifice inside. “I’ll be fine,” he told Alyssa before they entered the underground. No other creature than a sacrifice could enter this place and if a person was here to be sacrificed, their soul already belonged to Bael. He had never liked that about his own kind, how they gave the blood of innocents to soothe the chaos their creator bore. But he never did anything to stop it or even utter his opinion to anyone. “I feel odd,” he mumbled when he started to feel a bit lightheaded moving closer to the altar. “He’s stronger now. He has prepared by ingesting a lot of souls,” he added to his mumble, looking at Alyssa with a frown. Entering the altar room, it felt like a trap of sorts. Simeon stood and waited patiently, turning as he smiled at the siblings with his slick proud smile. “Glad you could make it,” he said, turning his eyes to Alyssa first. “Love of my life, I’d suggest you keep yo...” - “Let me go!” A boy yelled as he was pulled forward, fighting the grip of a pureblood before he looked at his mother. Frowning to himself he fell silent and looked down. “Well, you know the precautions I would have to make to stay safe,” he said before nodding at the pureblood to move the boy out of sight. “As much as I like Amadeus, his blood is as pure as it can be. Call it a backup, of sorts,” he said with a shrug, looking the way the kid was dragged away. “I wouldnt want to hurt him, but I wouldnt hesitate,” he said, sounding quite serious. He had helped raised Amos as much as Alyssa had allowed him, even claimed fatherhood to keep them safe after she had broken his rules over and over with her lovers. He looked at Baal, “You could save your kid by making this process so much easier for all of us,” he said. Baal just looked down as he seemed to consider the options.
