Bain woke to warmth, she was cocooned in Ty's arms as he slept. He shifted as she did, his bleary eyes opening before sharpening on her. "You okay?" He asked.
"Yes, I'm going to get dressed." Bain said with a smile, he let her go and she slid from the warm bed to start the heater back up. She slid into a pair of jeans and a sweater, she adjusted her bra and tucked her feet into a pair of boots. She kissed Ty before moving off to find Kimi, they needed to get off the mountain, but what about Bain's brother. Was he hiding out here on the mountain, Bain wished the goddess would respond.
She opened the door to the room to see a blood trail on the floor, she frowned and backed up. "Ty." She said, he was up then, across the room in barely a second. He looked out and huffed. He moved to dress as well. He finished lacing his boots when he held out his hands and his werewolf claws shifted out. Bain let her own hands change and they entered the hall. Bain inhaled and smelled Claire all over the house, what had happened while they were asleep?
Ty gripped her arm and tugged her back, they entered the main hall that led to the stairway. The blood was trailed down and led into the kitchen. Ty moved forward when he froze, he backed up and they looked to the other hall as Spike padded forward, his red eyes glazed with fire. He looked at them and then around, seeming to take in all the blood. "What happened?" Bain whispered. Spike bared his teeth before bounding down the stairs. "Shit."
Bain followed and Ty moved at her heels. They froze upon entering the kitchen, there two reptilian demons perched on the counter, and on the table. Her skin bristled in reminder of the last time she'd had a run in with these monsters. Ty kicked his boots back off and changed into his monster shape. Bain's eyes were glued to the center of the room, where the Slayers, all of them, were trussed together, including Kimi and her mother Jade. Kimi's eyes were open, wide and angry. That was when Bain saw Claire, she stood up completely naked, covered in blood. She tilted her head to Bain with a grin. "How nice of you to join me Bain." She smiled darkly.
"Let them go Claire." Bain growled. Claire slid up onto the counter, her long legs bare as she touched the one demon close to her. It hissed before tearing it's eyes fromt he Slayers to look at Bain.
"Slayers hunt our kind Bain." Claire smiled evilly. "I will let them go, if you give me your power."
"No." Bain said, she looked at Kimi and closed her eyes. "I cant give it away, that ability is lost to me."
"Then where is your brother?" Claire asked. "I never did see him, until the end. How did he survive?"
Bain didnt answer, and the madness slipped into Claire's eyes. She roared and lunged, the demons lunging for Bain. But right before the two demons hit her Ty was there, his arms snatchign them and flinging them in a heap to the side. He let loose and violent roar and Bain stepped around him. "Kill them." Bain said, Ty lumbered to the side and Bain turned to Claire. She balled her fists as she looked at the red haired harpie.
"Give me your brother." Claire hissed. She started to transform, and right as she turned to the Slayers, Spike's head met her hand. Energy spiralled through Bain. She felt fire and air rush through her. She looked down at her hands and fire covered them.Claire looked at her in shock and Bain looked at herself. She turned again and Claire lunged for her. Bain grabbed her and flung her out into the hall. Bain watched as her shadow reached out and connected to Claire's keeping her still. What was happening? She advanced and her claws, still covered in fire, slashed out at Claire. Calire screamed when her side was laid open. She clutched at it and suddenly Bain was choking. Her energy suddenly felt depleted. Ty roared and lumbered forward, he slid in front of Bain with a snarl. He bared his fangs at Claire and she scrambled up. One of the demons slinked around her, it was missing an arm and it's tail was in ruins.
"I'll be back for you Ty, and Bain... I'll kill you." Claire said before the demon picked her up and fled to the door. It was already torn open, The night sky still covered the land. But it was close to dawn. Bain rushed out after them and searched.
She looked at her hands and shook with sudden fatigue. Ty was there, holding her then. "I havent seen you use outside energy in a long time." Ty said. "Not since you and your brother encountered the other wolves." He breathed as he picked her up.
"Ty, take me to the river." Bain said, he nodded. "Spike! Bring the Slayers!"
She watched as Spike bound back inside, Ty changed shape again and lifted her into his arms. She threaded her hands into his fur and held on as he ran through the forest. He made it to a river and waded in, holding her in his arms. Spike lumbered into the river, his massive demon form carrying the Slayers on his back. Bain slid her legs into the water and held her hands out, a white haze covered them and she reached out to each Slayer. She healed them, fixing the damage Claire had caused. She pulled their pain into herself and marveled at how she could do this. But then she wondered if perhaps she could have done this for Missy. Kimi stood next to her mother who clutched her stomach. Bain pressed her hand to the wound and silently replaced Jade's organs and sealed her up.
Kimi shook her head when Bain offered to heal her. At that Bain slumped as her own body absorbed the pain she had taken. Ty lifted her back into his arms and she shivered. "I'm not very fond of the humans." Bain said."But we all need to go into the town, now. Clair wont send demons in public. She'll send humans, and we can easily beat them."
"Theres a safe house we can go to."Jade said, "I misjudged you Mystc Bain, I am in your debt."
