Post  Leta on Tue May 17, 2011 2:45 pm

She followed the scent of blood till she found the body. A young woman around the age of twenty, strawberry blonde hair lay in chunks around her. Bite marks covered the exposed skin. Fuel to Leta's fire as she marched towards the scent of were's.
She was silent as the dead when she approached the group. There were five guys standing as tall as towers near the fire. Tents were pitched and torn clothes scattered the ground. One man, obviously the leader of this rogue pack sat in a chair laughing while a young girl hardly eight-teen as she whimpered at his feet.
Leta had seen enough.
She walked from the shadows like a ghost, guns blazing. Leta took out the first guy like nothing, however the others were prepared. As she marched ahead, a blurring movement only moments before gave way to the attack. Leta dodged to the right, his claws just missing her mid-drift. With a growl Leta shot off her gun.

Leta underestimated the group. While she assumed there were just five around the fire, she didn't even think if any were out and about. So needless to say when two more appeared from the woods she was surprised. Her moment of shock cost her greatly as claws dug into her right thigh. Pain seared her when another stroked her back ribs. Blood seeped through her black shirt.
Now she was pissed. Leta raised her gun, however there wasn't enough time as one grasped her hand and pulled the gun from her. A scream of fury forced the birds nearby to flee.
" You son of a bi-" She was unable to finish as a fist came crashing into her jaw.
Instantly Leta thought of Drake, wishing that maybe he didn't walk away, maybe she'd stopped him.
A foot came crashing down on her chest knocking the wind out of her. Once again Leta went for another gun strapped to her thigh, but her hands were wrenched upward and a thick rope wrapped around them.
This didn't look to good to Leta. Not good at all.
Leta let out a howl as both her mental and physical form were wounded. Perhaps she wouldn't survive this time. Perhaps that was okay with her.

Drake....
the plea transmitted was slowly Leta was losing consciousness.

Leta lost track of how many punches pounded into her body. She had this inching feeling at the base of her neck and realized she wasn't imagining Drake's voice. That in fact he didn't close their connection.She tried to project her surrounding as clearly as possible however the images of her wounds showed more. The image of her broken ribs, her swollen ankle and the pool of blood beneath her broken body cleared so that she projected about a miles worth of trees north of the cave.
The abusers were come towards her now, she could hear their whispers and knew this wasn't going to be good. Leta soldiered up, preparing herself mentally and physically for torture. Just like she used to do before she came to the surface.
Drake, woods, fire, smoke, lake near....
In short snippets she hoped he got the message.

One man grabbed her jaw with rough hands and smiled crookedly.
" Damn all bloodied up and you still got me hot for you." She felt his other hand press on her broken ribs. He was obviously the leader of the group. Bile rose, when he licked the side of her face as if he owned her.

" Taste like chicken, asshole! " Leta spat out, her voice grown hoarse. " I hope you choke on it! "

Leta felt an odd sense of relieve when Drake said he was coming, hopefully it wouldn't be too late. The leader had run off to his goons once Leta nailed him in the blue balls he was caring for now. With a sly smile Leta continued to untie her hands.

Drake circled the semi-hidden field as he watched Leta's captors being sent away one by one... Oh, is this going to be easy... He was sure that Leta heard him, a small chatter rumbled from his chest.

Slinking in on the ledge just above the man - the man that seemed to be holding his "boys" - Drake launched his attack.

If a wolf could smile, then Drake one had one securely intact across his muzzle, that was at least a moment before he clamped onto the dude's throat and ripped it out in one fell swoop. He looked to Leta with the remnants of the man's vocal chords hanging from his jowls. Hungry?

If Leta had more emotions other than anger right now she would feel relieve that Grayson was here.
As he took down the asshole who looked at her with a little too much enthusiasm Leta smiled.

Nah I don't want him. You however is a different story. She replied to his mind speak comment. She sent him a mental map of the other six's locations.

Watch out for the one in the far right, he's got a nasty right hook. Her jaw still stung from his blow.

As Drake moved with an appealing grace, Leta continued to work on releasing her hands.

Drake dropped the leftovers from his mouth and looked to Leta when she said wanted him... He just shook his head and walked over to her, he was going to try and chew off the restraints.

He gnawed on the ropes enough that she could pull her hands apart. Seems you'd need both of them to retaliate on the one who hit you. Drake sat down and looked her over - she was pretty banged up, but he knew that she would heal.

You want to take the three to your left and I'll take on the others?

Her hands were released and Leta grinned pure evil.
Relieve soon became anger and twisted revenge for Leta and her thirst for blood overly strong.

I'll do more than 'take care' of them

He looked up to her for a moment and when she started to shift - Grayson looked away, he gave her that bit of privacy until he was sure that she was done.

Leta, what do you have up your sleeve? He took off after her, breaking right just before they hit the clearing. He would take down who he could, but the crack of a rifle blast caught his attention - along with the pain.

Drake let out a yelp as the bullet pierced his hindquarter. Shit - that's gonna leave a mark He slowed to a stop - which made him vulnerable - but he had get the silver bullet out...

When a howl of pain ricocheted through the dark woods Leta stopped and whipped around in time to witness Drake go down. With her heightened sight Leta spotted blood and a glint of silver.

Goddammit Drake!
Leta growled as she headed straight for him. Her ears listened for even a single footstep, as she readied to literally dodge bullets.

Within moments Leta was before Drake and in human form. The moonlight as her guide she scanned for his wound, she found it easily located in his hindquarter.

Seriously
She mind spoke and paused for a heart stopping second and still heard nothing.

The moonlight played on her porcelain skin as goosebumps chilled her bare body with the nightly breeze. Muscles in her shoulders bunches with her efforts. Her hands worked fast and efficiently as Leta paid close attention to their surroundings.
The bullet emerged in a few moments, and a lot more blood. Leta feared the large amount he lost would hinder him for possible attacks.

Take it easy Drake.

Oh, you're cursing me?!? Like I ran into the bullet... He laid, waiting and willing the bullet to work its way out sooner than later.

Drake watched through wolf eyes as Leta transformed , he noticed the contours and curves of her moonlit body and that quick he diverted his eyes and attention to the wound at hand.

He felt weak, but not to the point of passing out, Drake had had worse injuries. I'm easy like Sunday Morning... He curled his lips back, it was supposed to be a smile but he was sure that it looked more like a snarl.

Oh so now your easy huh? Leta grumbled at his smile. Can you walk ok?

Leta worried about him but tried not to let it show. Her concern should be now getting them to safety and less about how her nude body reacted to his slightly watchful eye, though she shifted his gaze.

Trees nearby rustled announcing company.

Drake stood up and tested out how much pressure he could handle on his leg - and he seemed to be alright. He nodded before looking back up to Leta.

He heard the rustle in the treeline and instinctively stood in front of Leta to 'protect' her. The only weapon he had at the moment were his teeth. What is it with these guys? He glanced back to Leta before returning his attention back to the matter at hand.

Uh I don't know, maybe they think I'm tasty? Leta said jokingly however concern began to sink in.
They did make her bleed was it possible they will be forever to track her? With that thought another followed, than they all must die.

When Grayson stood in front of her Leta grinned.

You are in no shape to defend me male.
Instead of telling him of her next actions she just did them. Grabbing him by his tail she began to walk towards the direction of their-HER cave. The perfect place to have a battle since no one could sneak up on them. And Grayson could heal properly.

He turned to look at her when she made the statement about not being able to protect her - then she grabbed his tail.

What the hell... But he followed her to the cave - the cave - and sat down on his haunches and looked around.

Okay now what? He knew that the people that wanted to harm Leta weren't far behind, but maybe it was enough time for him to heal.

" Now you follow me. " She spoke, the night's events beginning to take a hold off her. Even something as simple as mind speak was weakening her.

Leta knew this cave like the back of her hand. Even with her heightened sight she would know how to reach the unknown tunnel. Glancing backward, Leta ensured Grayson was following.

As she reached the tunnel, with one strong and extremely tiring push the boulder blocking their escape was out of the way.

" This tunnel leads out to the waterfall and river two miles south. Away from town and from the goons following. " Though Leta hated to walk away from a battle she knew when it was appropriate. With Grayson injured and herself not up to 100% it was necessary.

Leta urged Grayson to go first, however there was one thing. " You should probably shift into your human form. The trip down can get difficult, even more so if your injured such as you are. And besides, if your animal blood ends here we have a chance at a cleaner escape." She was shocked at how sultry her voice came out.

Grayson followed her, not knowing what she was planning - until the boulder moved and she turned to look at him. In his minds eye, he had to laugh, somehow he thought was funny that she was telling him what was best.

But he listened to her. If the trek was indeed that treacherous, he would morph into his human form. Laying down in the small but open space, Drake let the pull of being human wash over him once again.

Luckily for him, his modesty was almost non-existent, but he couldn't help not having a comment. "I think you just wanted to see me naked again..." With a sly grin, Drake made his way past her and followed the natural made tunnel towards the exit that she spoke of.

As Grayson descended down the tunnel before her reply could be voiced, Leta slipped into his clever mind.

I've seen worse.

Than she soon followed behind, hearing voices not to far from the cave's entrance. The ice cold water covered her body as she slide down the tunnel, rucks cutting into her exposed skin. Not too worried over them, Leta focused on steering herself. Losing control and allowing her fears to block concentration would be a death wish. Her legs stretched before herself, straight as boards. Her arms lay to the side, flush against her chilled body.
Soon Leta spotted the light of a setting sun, indicating the exit of the tunnel. She knew what to expect but was still shocked as her body shot out into mid air before what seemed like in slow motion slammed into the water below. First the water consumed her like a frozen blanket of paralyzing temperature. Her body would not respond, clearly exhausted. And the current carried her away.

Drake had taken the hail Mary dive pretty well since it was completely unexpected, and he managed to straighten out and not make much of a splash when he hit the water. The chill of the water consumed him, he swore that he momentarily blacked out.

The only way to get warm and quick was to shift back into wolf form. Pulling himself onto the bank Drake let him furry form take over him once again. Just as he finished up, he looked up to see Leta shooting out the the tunnel at full tilt - and he waited for her to surface - and she didn't.

Letting out a chirp, Drake launched himself into the water trying to find Leta. He knew that in wolf form he wasn't of any use, but he couldn't change back so he pressed on. Finally he saw a bob of her black hair a few yards ahead of him.

Yes - he doggie paddled to her and managed to coral her enough that she kinda washed up on shore. Alternating pawing at her and licking her - he did what he had to. He bit his tongue before licking the corners of her mouth.

Yeah yeah, yell at me again... He draped himself over her being trying to ward off the cold, waiting for her saucy response.

( saucy...hmm LOL )

Leta felt a warmth seep into her bones. A musky scent filled her sense of smell, and a heavy pressure pinned her to the ground. Her eyes shot open prepared for anything, but soon her body once tensed, relaxed when she spotted Drake. Just when a smile was about to surface, it soon diminished when a sharp metallic taste filled her taste buds.

Many thoughts crossed her mind as Leta realized this could quite possible be their first full exchange of blood. While she tried to remember, like a teenage worried if she took her pill that morning, her mind soon became distracted by Drake's. Worry and encouraging thoughts flooded his mind. Worry for her safety, yet encouraging and hopefully that she will be fine. With the taste of his blood still fresh of Leta's lips, Leta felt closer to Drake than ever.

And that was a bad place to be, she thought before slipping into his mind.

Wakey, wakey my little blood fountain.
Her voice was comical before turning serious. We really have to get a move on.

Blood fountain...really? He eyed her curiously before moving off of her. Hey, just remember that I'm not the one who decided not to surface. Lead the way...

He scanned the river and the knoll just to the right and tried to scent out any visitors - and he didn't smell a one.

Okay, let's head south. The mountains are around here somewhere. We should have enough coverage to hide out there for some nights.

Mentally Leta added, and work out whatever is between us.

She shifted quickly, cringing with pain at the rushed action and her beyond exhausted body. A sniff of the clean air soaked deep into her bones.The freshness of just being outside of the town made it feel as if she was breathing for the first time.

Drake knew that he wouldn't be able to hide out for a few days - he had a business to run... but he would try his best to Leta back to the guest room above the bar.

He waited until she shifted, he knew that she felt some pain since she was still weak, but there was nothing he could do to help her now.

The mountains are to the south, but I won't be able to hide out, so you would need to come with me back to the bar.

He moved to her left side and ran next to her towards the mountains.

Leta understood Drakes need to run his establishment. So when he claimed they would need to head back to the bar, Leta agreed.

When do you think it will be safe to head over?

She asked while moving fast but fairly slow compared to her normal speed. Leta felt her ribs bruising, felt the swelling of cheek and not to mention the multiple cuts and stabs she received throughout the night. While exhausted as she was, Leta would fight through and try not to allow any of the pain to show.

Drake stopped in his tracks and looked around, taking in deep breathes as he went. He was trying to sense anyone in the area and all he trying smelled was the small animals that peppered the area.

Why don't we head a few more miles and then we'll see. I don't sense anything now - unless you are hungry - but just to be on the safe side...

He didn't want to keep Leta out any longer than she needed to be, she needed to rest, but on the other paw he didn't want to bring trouble to his doorstep.
