Chapter 28: Blood is Not Thicker than Water

            When I woke up I was in my own bed and Angeline was curled up next to me, holding me tight. I rubbed her cheek and she stirred, looking up at me. "You're awake. How do you feel?"

            "I feel alright. Wondering if I missed something big though. Last thing I remember was learning how to fly."

            "Your brother broke your agreement and started shifting. He ended up throwing you into the bleachers and saying if you ever went there again that he'd kill you and anyone who wanted to stay with you had to leave and whatever else he said. I wasn't paying much attention to him. I was more concerned about you and if you were going to be okay."

            "Well, I guess we can all say good-bye to my brother then."

            "Why?" She looked at me, confused.

            "We'll discuss that soon. Is anyone else here?"

            "Yeah, Sam and Luke both are. Sam called his sister and told her they were going to be staying here for a little while."

            "Okay. Are they awake?"

            "I don't know. I think so. I stayed in here with you. Refused to leave your side after they said they knew where things were."

            I smiled at her. "They stay here pretty often at times. Is that alright with you?"

            "Having a writer and a guard?" She laughed. "I could get used to it. They're nice."

            I started moving, trying to get up. She held me down. "Not yet?"

            I laid back down, wrapping my arms around her. "Five more minutes can't hurt, right?" She giggled and kissed my cheek. "I'm a very lucky man. I've got a beautiful woman, amazing friends, and I'm alive."

            "That you are. I'm thankful you're alive. More thankful than I might be able to say." I leaned up and kissed her when she finished talking. I kissed her shoulder and worked my way up along her neck and nuzzled her ear when there was a knock on the door.

            "You two decent in there?" Luke asked.

            "Yeah, go ahead and open the door."

            Luke and Sam walked into my room and sat on the floor. "What's the plan for today?" Luke asked.

            I sat up, Angeline sat leaning against the wall. "First things first. Thank you all for sticking by my side. None of you had to, but you did and that means a lot to me. I know you're probably wondering what's going to be done about my brother cheating, but I'm not going to do anything. Neither are any of you."

            "Why? He cheated, he threatened to kill you, and he disgraced you!" Luke exclaimed.

            I held up a hand and he sighed. "I understand why you want revenge sought, but I already took care of things."

            "How? The only one left with him is Flint and none of the rest of us can go back there."

            "Trust me, it's taken care of. Before Devlin and I started fighting I spoke with Flint. I asked him how Devlin treated him and what he thought of my brother. I told him of a better way of life and he liked it more. My brother does nothing but abuse Flint and Flint has a breaking point. He respects Demeter, but my brother just commands him around without regard for anything. Fling has been with Demeter from the beginning and he doesn't like how my brother treats him. He warned me that Devlin was probably going to do something nasty. I made an agreement with him. If he caught my brother doing something he shouldn't that he'd take care of my brother and I'd show him how to keep things in order so he's not relying on Demeter for everything. My brother cheated, so he sealed his fate. If he doesn't have enough respect for me to fight fair like we agreed and if he wants to say he'll kill me, then I'm not going to feel bad for him having signed his own fate."

            Ange put her hand over mine and spoke up, "They say that blood is thicker than water, and while that might be true in physics, it's not true in life. You have a family. You have us."

            "I will always respect you, Duval." Sam said. "If it wasn't for you I'd be a lot worse off."

            "And if it wasn't for you I would still be roaming from city to city searching for a place to call home. Or I'd be dead from a hunter or a pack or something."

            "And if it wasn't for you I don't know that I'd be where I am."

            "No one has to stay, but you can if you want. You know how to reach me if something happens and you need me. I can organize a safe place for you to shift if you want, I want to make sure you're able to defend yourselves, and I want you to know that this will always be a safe place for you. Wherever I am will always be a safe place for you."

            "And if something happens to Duval, wherever I am will be safe for you as well. I might not be as stronger as Duval is, but I love him and you guys are obviously willing to do whatever it takes to help him and I admire that. I respect that."

            "And if you two decide to reproduce and give this world more people like you then know that they will always be watched over and protected."

            "And well read!" Sam piped up, wanting to add to the conversation.
It's 10:45 A.M. where I'm at and here are some things I've done since I woke up 2 hours ago (obviously excluding some things such as bodily functions).

- Read another portion of Harlan Coben's new novel "The Stranger" (OMG this book is fantastic!)
- Revamped the :iconwordsinourveins: group folders
- Removed two Contributors/mods who showed no activity one for over a year the other inactive since November.
- Invited one member to go from Member to Contributor/Mod (she and I had talked about this months ago when I was really kicking my own ass about it).
- Posted an announcement from the group about the revamping.
- Posted a journal to the group about the revamping and with an update about the new moderator AND asked for those who wish to be mods to contact me because I'm looking to add another mod or two.
- Removed myself as a moderator from both :iconour-own-victims: and :icondraw-what-you-want: and moved myself to a regular member.
- Asking HERE for people who want to be mods (or who want to join the group) to contact me (or click that little option in the group about joining and requesting)
- Watched part of A Clockwork Orange DVD (which I've seen like 100 times and still enjoy even though it's creepy as heck and kind of demented)
- Stopped that DVD when my folks got up and I'm about to start Limitless (which I've seen, but feel that my mother would enjoy because she seemed interested in a very similar movie that we've talked about).
- Thought too much about my own poetry.

And now I'm about to go and get something for lunch and debate charging my Nook while reading more of Harlan Coben's "The Stranger". I could read it off my phone while my Nook charges. Hmm...

x.x <- Totally me right now.

I drafted a blog post last night/this morning which went through without any problems, but then I was looking through some things on the Camp NaNoWriMo website and realized that I'd switched two of the titles around in the post last night so instead of just editing the post and making a big caption about it I posted a quick new post and went back and linked it because I went off on a small spree. Not really a tangent, but just an extra side street if you will.

Camp NaNoWriMo April 2015:
Yes, I'm participating. Yes, I'm looking forward to it. Yes, I'm nervous.

This story will be 15,000 words, so much smaller than November and probably half of what July will be. July I might get ballsy with word goal. Who knows.

The story is currently affectionately known as "That evil thing I don't want to name". Ha ha! No, really the title is "I Know You" aka "Flint's Story". It's about Flint and another character that you have yet to meet because she/he makes his/her appearance later on in "Betrayed By You".

Updates on "Meeting Mr. Right":
The artist friend I was hoping would do the cover art has declined, so I'm looking for an artist with good prices willing to work with me on it (I'm easygoing about this), but that's something that will be for later thoughts.

The Ology Poem series is finished and has been for a while. I don't remember if I've already typed these pieces out yet or not *goes to check and drops book. Tries again* Nope. Haven't typed them yet. That's something for another day at the moment.

I've been occupying my time with reading, taking a small vacation, and playing games on my Nintendo 3DS XL. >.> Friend code is 0018-2772-7169 for anyone who wants to trade codes or add me. Please. I'm lacking friends on there and it's rather sad. >.>

Working on stuff for the rest of the year and trying to not trip over my own feet. Right now I have the crazy image of me running around with a giant stack of books in my arms and tripping over my own feet and bad things happening from there.

I can't wait until we get to the point where I'm able to really talk about the story IKY after the 2nd character is introduced in BBY. I really think a lot of people are going to like this other character because of who he/she is. Yes, I'm being vague on purpose. Trying to decide if I'll really let more out about it later or not. ^.^

There are days I wonder how Catfish puts up with my crazy writer stuff, but then I remember that I deal with his crazy stuff and we have a wonderful mutual crazy going on. :heart: I love him.

Time for me to ponder things, get a shower, and try to not fall over because of my knee or just tripping over my own feet. Really wanting it to warm up outside again so I can go on a walk. If my knee will hold out for it. *sigh* Peace for now all.

I'm debating something concerning the group :iconwordsinourveins:. Please give input. I'm debating editing the group, or flat out creating a new group for writing and written arts.

Levi by Bahogar
I affectionately refer to this artist, Bahogar as Baho when I'm talking to myself about how wonderful the artwork is or asking artists in common if anyone has seen him.

The artwork that Bahogar produces is stunning and captures the eyes right away no matter where the watermarks end up. The shading is done extremely well (I'm jealous as I can't shade to save my life) and it's very obvious that Bahogar puts a lot of work into his art.

As a writer, seeing Bahogar's dragon art brings to mind thoughts of stories with many flying dragons and all these brilliant images that I don't have the time to detail here in critique. You can plainly see where the muscles are and the strength not only in the wings that bring these dragons to flight, but in the legs and the neck and everything that brings the dragon into what it is, a fantastic being that could easily bite your head off.

Chapter 27: Mission Complete

            I watched my brother land in those bleachers and I didn't care if he was alive or dead. I didn't care that I'd broken our agreement to not use power. I was not going to lose to my brother.

            "Duval, if you're alive enough to hear me, understand this. You are not welcome here. You are a monster. A werewolf. You are not my brother, you are not a part of this gang, and if you ever come around here again I will kill you. You have done good things for the gang, but you did those things in lies. Anyone who wants to leave with you can, because if I find out anyone in the gang is still talking to you I will label them a traitor and they will meet more pain than they have ever known. Leave this place, and do not come back."

            I watched as Lucian and Sam got a stretcher. Sam and Angeline carried Duval out and Lucian got their things. "It was never a pleasure knowing you, Devil. I hope that someday you're put in your place. And I hope that whoever does it shows you no mercy." He walked by Flint on his way out the door and Flint looked around at the mess.

            "Tell me you didn't kill your brother?"

            "So what if I did? He's a werewolf. A dirty, filthy, fucking werewolf."

            'He's your brother."

            "Not anymore." My mission was complete. I had ruined her life, traumatized her, and not once had I touched her to do so.

I do use my real name here, dude. I sign my journals off as Heather/Razor and my real name is the one listed on my profile page. It's okay to use the name. I'm rather looking forward to the day I get to change it.

And yeah. A lot of people forget it. We've seen a small decline in submissions and the next time I really get some free time I'm planning on some moves and switches for things involving groups. You can text me any time. I haven't forgotten, I've just been super busy and dealing with a lot of things.

I love your latest piece. Really captures the emotion.

I've never liked the rhyming style. I do it off and on when it fits the piece, but mostly I use the free verse style because it allows you more control over the flow and how everything happens in the piece rather than counting syllables and looking up synonyms so things rhyme or using a rhyming dictionary. It just seemed like too much work for something that was supposed to be free and feel like it.

I'd recommend the poetry of George Kalamaras (Indiana's current Poet Laureate and a professor at IPFW). He's really fantastic.

I will eventually be changing my real name once Catfish and I get married.
