Lee was lost in a sea of paperwork as Samantha
slipped into the room. Everyone knew the responsibilities of the guardian
were great, but Lee never knew there was so much paperwork involved.
Budgets, training costs, Jesse's newly acquired medical bills. There was
paperwork for everything. Samantha took a seat on the nearby couch and
awaited until Lee would notice her.
"Kinda busy Sam. What's up?" Lee asked
still focusing on the paperwork.
"It's been two weeks and you haven't
been back to see him" Samantha said softly.
"I've been busy" Lee said harshly.
"Only excuse you can come up with?"
Samantha replied as she tied her red locks into a pony tail.
Before Lee could make a snappy comeback, he
was interrupted by a hectic knock on his door. Before he could answer, a
young girl rushed into the room with numerous folders and a look of complete
confusion on her face.
"Yes Robin, what is it?" Lee asked
glancing up at the girl.
"Guardian, Aleksandr has just reported
in" Robin said as she shuffled around trying not to drop her folders.
"Well what is it?" Samantha said trying
not to loose her cool with the girl.
"The knight is missing" Robin replied.
Jesse howled out in pain as his broken sword
was shoved swiftly into his shoulder. His attacker touched the blood that
was spilling out onto Jesse's jacket. After acquiring a quick taste, his
"It may have taken four-hundred years to
create you knight. But your blood is perfectly delicious" spoke the
"Can we just kill him already?" spoke a
bald woman from the corner.
"No! Our orders are to put him out of
commission" spoke the attacker.
"He's right Alisha, Gavin would be very
displeased with us if this knight died" spoke an older man who just entered
"Stupid human. You know nothing of
Gavin's wrath" Alisha spoke through gritted teeth.
"It's about time you got here John. It
was getting boring without a proper audience" spoke the attacker as he
pulled the sword out of Jesse's shoulder causing blood to flow even more
"How in the fuck could he leave without
anyone seeing him?" Lee yelled into his cell phone as he paced the hospital
"Jesus Lee" Samantha sighed as she
motioned her fingers toward's Lee's phone which instantly brought it to her
"Give me my phone Samantha Lawrence" Lee
spoke in an angry tone.
"Damn it Lee" Samantha started before
grabbing her forehead and dropping the phone to the floor.
"Sam, what's wrong. Tell me!" Lee yelled
as he caught her from falling.
Visions flooded Samantha's head as she tried to
focus on each scene before her. First she was seeing the healing process
from Lewis, then she fast-forwarded to a mysterious man standing over Jesse
as he slept. A small beam of white light from his palm connected him to
Jesse's forehead. Samantha tried to move within her mind and see the man,
but his face was a black void as he performed his task. Suddenly, Samantha
sprang forward from Lee's arms gasping for air.
"He was doing something to Jesse!" She choked
out as she braced herself against the wall.
"What? Who!?" Lee asked frantically.
"I couldn't see his face, but he was
doing something to Jesse's head" Samantha replied trying to catch her
Lee knelt down quickly and grabbed his cell
phone before entering the empty room where Jesse had laid no more then a few
hours ago. He blamed himself for Jesse's disappearance, even from the
beginning. Lee thought back to when Lewis scalded him when Jesse hadn't
reported in for two days. Jesse was his partner, even though he was younger
then any of the other agents of the order. It was Lee's responsibility to
protect Jesse when they were on missions. But something had freaked Jesse
out before he went missing, even Lewis and the others couldn't figure it
out. Lee shuttered briefly when the memory of Jesse's return played in his
"I'll be in a few minutes Lewis.
Goodbye" Lee spoke into his cell phone as he stepped out of his building.
Lee stopped at the edge of the sidewalk and
started searching for his keys. Damn these cargo pockets, he thought as he
kept searching. Suddenly a black impala came to a screeching halt, nearly
hitting Lee. The back door swung open and a man wearing a mask tossed
Jesse's lifeless body onto the cold pavement before driving off. Lee fell to
the ground and immediately clutched Jesse's body. His clothes were torn and
covered in sweat and blood, Lee not being able to tell which one there was
more of. Jesse started coughing up blood as Lee scrambled to call 911.
"L-Lee" Jesse choked out between coughs.
"Jesse, don't try to talk. Just please
hang on" Lee spoke, trying to explain his directions to the operator.
"I couldn't let them hurt you" Jesse
spoke before falling unconscious.
"Jesse! Jesse, please stay with me" Lee
yelled out, clutching Jesse even harder.
Lee was lost in the memories as Samantha tried
to find the source of her sudden flashback. Samantha knew the laws of nature
and energies. Simply put, someone with her talent could pick up old energy
trails if there was enough left behind. She just didn't know why it had come
so sharply and suddenly. Someone was working their magic into the
environment. While she did her search, Lee just relaxed and let past
thoughts take over.
"Jesse, I want you to meet your partner"
Lewis said softly as he led Jesse into a large conference room.
"Yay, I'm a supernatural cop" Jesse said
with little enthusiasm.
"Doesn't look very supernatural to me"
Lee rolled his eyes and propped his legs on
the long table. Jesse sighed and took a seat on the other end. This was one
of Lewis' latest tricks, Lee thought. Lewis had been trying to bring him out
of his shell since he joined the order. Everything Lewis did wasn't really
working. Even pairing the sexy Samantha up with him did nothing more then
"I'm no longer worried about your
personal character Lee. If you wish to remain like a pompous jackass, then
fine. I have other pressing issues" Lewis said softly as he took a sip of
"Fucker" Lee thought harshly. Lewis' Guardian
powers allowed him to do much more then the average mortal or witch. Lee
couldn't help be a little jealous of that. Lee would of settled on just
mind-reading, hell it would help during interrogations. Instead, all he
could do was fight, far from mystical; he thought.
Jesse on the other hand was not enjoying this
"first encounter" In the past few days his life had been turned upside down,
the last thing he needed was some older macho prick. Even if he was hot,
being a prick overruled everything, Jesse thought quietly to himself.
Two men dragged Jesse's body into a large
courtyard as the mysterious driver made a call on his cell phone. Jesse let
out a soft grunt as his unconscious body was dropped to the ground. As the
man talked, Gavin made his entrance. Tonight he was wearing clothes of times
past. Gavin's slim, but muscular frame was covered in black slacks and a
matching vest, his shirt had the slightest touches of black lace that
brought the outfit to it's aristocratic nature. Gavin would usually let his
long black hair flow freely, but tonight it was tied back, this seemed to
bring out his almond eyes even more in the moonlit courtyard.
"Imbeciles!" Gavin spat as he eyed
"Calm Down Gavin" Alisha spoke as she
entered the courtyard.
"I sneaked him out of the hospital
Gavin, that was supposed to be your job; not mine" spoke the driver.
"He was healed, it was that Guardian of
his; wasn't it!" Gavin shouted ignoring the man's earlier comment.
"Yes, Lewis did heal the boy. But he
won't be doing it again" replied the driver.
"Dead? How John?" Gavin asked, his anger
drifting away by this latest news.
"Equal Law" John breathed.
"To gain something back, something of
equal value must be given" Gavin muttered softly.
"Yes, his own life for the boy" John
replied as he polished his glasses.
"Excellent, now let's just put him back
in his previous condition" Gavin replied darkly.
"Let's. Then his new Guardian will heal
him" John muttered as he put on his glasses.
"He has a new Guardian already?" Alisha
"The Order's high council picked the new
Guardian as soon as Lewis was pronounced dead" John said as he eyed Alisha
in her crimson dress.
"You were supposed to delay the process
John. How can you be working from the inside if your not doing a damn
thing?" Gavin questioned harshly.
"The order is a secret organization that
is older then you are Gavin. It's demise cannot be brought down within a few
months" John said as he checked Jesse's pulse.
"What's wrong with him?" Alisha asked in
a smoky voice regarding Jesse.
"A simple parlor trick Madame. His
thoughts are chaotic and best forgotten at most. This knight doesn't know
anything about himself" answered John.
Gavin snapped his fingers and the two men
picked up Jesse's lifeless form and carried him away. Alisha soon followed,
causing John to stiffen at the thought of her alone with Jesse. Gavin picked
up the sudden change in John's character and immediately went from several
feet away to being right behind John in the blink of an eye.
"Not trying to back out on our offer,
are you John?" Gavin whispered.
"No, of course not" John replied with a
bit of coldness.
"Good, I really wouldn't want to have to
break your neck" Gavin replied as his long fingers traced the side of John's
neck, as if to make the point even more clearer.
John stepped forward allowing Gavin's hands to
drop away freeing his neck. Perhaps he had made a mistake? John thought to
himself. It was too late now, history had been put in motion; there was no
way to stop the past and upcoming events. No matter how much John wanted.
"I've used a simple spell to keep him
asleep and forgetful, but we'll need to introduce another form of sleep to
the boy; otherwise he'll break free from the spell's hold and remember
everything" John said as he turned to face Gavin.
"Very well. I'll bite him in a few
moments. The full force of the toxin should keep him out for a week at the
most. Then, I'll just keep doing it. I hear his blood is quite delicious"
Gavin replied as he walked off leaving John to his thoughts.
After several hours of searching and team
reports, Lee had passed out on his office sofa. Everyone was on a full-scale
search for Jesse. Samantha had spent the evening in her office trying to
pick up Jesse's thoughts. The thought seemed useless to Lee, only Lewis
could sense Jesse's whereabouts. Lee highly doubted if Samantha could do it,
she may of been a witch; but she wasn't powerful enough to pull off the
magic they needed to find Jesse. The guilt was starting to wear Lee down, so
much had happened before Jesse's disappearance; and now there was this. I've
only been a Guardian for a few weeks and I'm failing miserably, Lee thought
as he started to drift to sleep.
Jesse was moved to the medical wing of Gavin's
mansion. It was decided that for as long as Jesse could be sedate and
unconscious, he would be no threat. Gavin had already released the toxin
into Jesse's bloodstream by feeding off of him. With the help of John's
magic, Jesse would never awake unless his captors wanted him to. Gavin was
over seven-hundred years old, surely a humorous number to some people; but
it was true. His skills would help pull this charade off. When Gavin was
turned on his twenty-eighth birthday, he instantly became one of the most
powerful vampires known to his kind. This fact only got truer with time. By
now, Gavin was a respected and highly-feared vampire elder. Not only did he
outrank others with seniority, but he also had the powers to match.
Unfortunately for Gavin, what Jesse lacked in
supernatural means; he made up with strength and intelligence. Gavin knew of
the Knight line. He had been studying them for years and the knowledge he
contained was simply priceless. But knowledge had nothing to do with his
capture of the knight. All it took was the threat of murder and an
untraceable drug. Gavin smiled at the simplicity of his plan. It had worked
from day one; and now he had the knight under his control. Gavin wouldn't
kill Jesse, he knew from past experience the dangers a dead knight could
cause to "their" society. No, this was the best plan. Perhaps in time, Gavin
would attempt to lead Jesse to be his personal bodyguard. Being one of the
highest elders did bring an occasional murder attempt every now and then.
"Soft breathing was the only sound heard in
the room as Jesse quietly slept. His arms were tired down to prevent any
escape, but it seemed pointless to John as he ran his old fingers across the
leather restraints. There's no possible way for the boy to wake up, John
reassured himself. But he wasn't so confident at his remark. The spell he
had casted before Jesse was returned, was supposed to keep him in a painless
slumber for at least a month. Unfortunately, the spell was broken; or
perhaps not strong enough. Whatever the reason, Jesse wouldn't awaken now.
John had spent days perfecting the spells he used, it just had to work. For
his sake, it just had to.
"You're going to be here for a while
Knight. Welcome Home" John muttered as he walked out of the cold room.
