Al glanced upward from his feet for the first time in over an hour, his face gaunt and pale like a man who had been both starved and left inside a building for far too long, an impression made even more appropriate by the matted carpet of hair that covered his face at the moment. He glanced nervously down to his left hand, or... more exactly, the massive book that was being gripped by his left hand and resting on his hip. The book's leather cover was shiny with age but several large ragged part existed on the cover, most prominently on the spine and corners. Still, the size was certainly impressive, being the depth of two fists put together and a full foot in length. Looking at it, he smiled slightly before he turned his attention to the street, keeping an eye out for a place he could stop and read the book at his discretion.
Further down the street was a small cafe that was a favorite of his, as it had few customers, and those that did go there knew to keep to their own business. Speeding up, he made inside quickly then ordered a cup of coffee before walking over to a small, out of the way table in the corner then opened his book up. Inside the book were beautifully detailed sketches and diagrams of all sorts, from human skeletons and hands to obscure circles with explanations done in crimson ink.

Rouze walked down street in a very huge heels, that made her look incredibly tall and gorgeous, her hair always dazzling in a red poison, all over her shoulders. Hey eyes with a light make up and her lips were pink kissable. She had a nice green dress that was almost a inch above her knee. She was carrying a hand bag pretty small, were she had they keys of her apartment and her lip gloss.
She saw a few of jewelry places, but nothing compared to Venice... of what she had traveled, the most beautiful jewelry was in there. She actually had a nice watch of there, almost something divine, also related to the fact that time didn't meant a bit for her. The old lady looked at her with some shocking reaction, maybe that she didn't had a total reflex in the mirror where people usually saw the jewelry on their necks.
Suddenly Rouze get a little scared of her beauty, she knew she had to feed in a human in that precisely moment, so she turned around to see if anyone was watching her, and there wasn't such a soul who could make her go into big troubles. She took the woman of the neck and with quick move, a mercy one, she broke her neck and threw her to the ground. Rouze walked to her and admire her lovely dead neck, she feed of it.
She hided the body in the table of the jewelry, somewhere that she might be find hours later for the dead smell. Ok now I'm beautiful as ever she thought and a witch laugh came to her lips while she walked beyond beautiful and dazzling to this coffee shop. She ordered for a strawberry milkshake and sat to wait it almost in the corner, a guy with a book was in her favorite place, but well, she sat next to his table and took out a Cosmopolitan Magazine.
Once she had her milkshake with her, she started to read an article about orgasms, and how to be a multi orgasmic girl. It was so entertaining that she didn't saw when a guy sat in her table, flirting with her, apparently a guy with out gray material in his brain. She sighed.

Al Stared at his book, trying to decipher Faust's elegant writings and diagrams. It was time consuming, Faust used innumerable cyphers and patterns to conceal what truly lay within the book that was now in Al's hands. He stared at it for a second longer than sipped his coffee to wake up his brain after yet another near-all night study. He shuddered as the foul substance hit his lips, the taste alone was enough to wake him up, but the caffeine within woke him up even more and energized his fingers as he traced the lines of works.
The binding of the soul is a delicate matter... as the body must be able to contain it... weak souls such as children are easiest to bind... Furthermore, the body's elements must be exact and will vary depending on age... Full body reconstruction is difficult so other bodies can be used, preferably fresh...
Al's thoughts were disrupted when he heard the cafe's door open and a strikingly beautiful woman strode in. His eyes widened as he recognized the face of Rouze. She was the same as he had last seen her, two years previous... that same flowing cascade of red hair, the ageless face... It was the same... SHE was the same. As he watched her make her way around he quickly looked away to avoid eye contact, a sudden sense of shyness overcoming him. He struggled to get his attention back to his book, but the scent of her, sitting not even two yards away was absolutely maddening. He watched as a man walked over to her and sat down at her table. The man was an intellectual Neanderthal, flirting with her, asking her stupid questions.
Idiot... doesn't even realize who or what she is...
Al stood after a second of internal debating within his mind then, book in hand, walked over to Rouze's table. Putting his hand on the man's shoulder, he spoke with a soft spoke venom. "Excuse me... but perhaps the lady isn't interested... i suggest you move... now..." Al wasn't surprised when the man looked at him with a glare of bewilderment and puzzlement that this thin guy would dare touch him and tell him to move, but he got the gist of the threat. His chest puffed up like a rooster than man stood then walked off to his old table, where he and his friend glared at Al with vengeful stares.
'Sorry about that Rouze... Men like him are stupid creatures..." Al said as he passed her on his way over to his table.

She closed her magazine and packed it back to her hand bag, not like she were going to pay him attention, but she firmly sighed and with a tired face, she refused to be dealing with her, and his bad comments. "Why are you talking to me?" she said very annoyed, and he answered her... what a moron. Because I want to take you to my apartment that obviously made her anger grow against men. She was about to spell him, not caring the people around, she liked fire, and more when a stupid moron like him burn in it. but a soft voice made her quit her decision.
"Excuse me... but perhaps the lady isn't interested... i suggest you move... now..." a really educate guy with an odd book suggested this big guy to move, and for once she thought he was going to hi the guy, but he only left the table without say anything. Good for him. She smiled a little embarrassed, she could obviously protect herself with out a guy, and this guy seemed alittle different, he was probably around the twenty's, he had a sad serious face, and she could bet he was inside a such a quite but pervert person, well demons had a six sense, don't you think?.
'Sorry about that Rouze... Men like him are stupid creatures..." She was about to speak when he spoke first, and he was right, that guy was a stupid creature. But how in hell did he knew her name? She did a surprise face, he caught her. "How do you know my name?" she said when he sat on his own table.

Al looked back at Rouze, his pale blue eyes intense as he studied her face. He wanted to tell her everything he knew about her, to just blurt out everything, but he bit back his tongue for a second then turned back to his book, picking up where he left off. He read for a second, thinking over what he would say, but before he could make a cohesive decision his lips opened and words came out.
"I've known about you for a while... years actually... but you probably never noticed me... i was always hiding in the shadows of my books and the library halls..." his voice was soft and filled with a mixture of emotions. "Women as beautiful as you are always the talk of the town... my suburb home was no different when i first saw you... names get around, rumors spread... and you are left with the name of a girl you hardly know and how she can remain the same no matter how many years pass..."
Al turned back to his book, tracing a odd circular pattern drawn in the middle of the page.
The binding circle is used to bind souls to bodies or even reconstruct soulless bodies... this particular one is used for binding together a soul and reconstructing the body at the same time... however adult human bodies are near impervious to reconstruction and subsequent soul binding, as well as those near adulthood...
Al closed his eyes and rubbed them with his left hand, then reached out and grabbed his coffee and drank a bit.

A voice full of emotions said that he knew her about years ago, her never changing beauty, and the rumors of the people, well then it was normal that he knew her name, now she could not suspect of him as a slayer or an angel. "So I did a good impress on you, huh?" she said in his flirting way. Now she glanced at the morons of the other table and with a big smirk she stood up with her milkshake and sat in the chair in front of this mysterious guy. She didn't asked to sit, she was just that way, she deserved everything that she wanted.
"So... does my savior has a name?" she said in a playful mood, "Apparently you know much about me, but I don't know anything about you"she slowly said while her tongue played with the straw of her milkshake. She winked an eye, and leaned into the table forward him, almost kissing him.

Al's face remained the stoic expression he usually wore, but his head was full of confusion concerning what to say. he finally decided on a few things to say after yet another debate in his head.
"Jerall von Kreiss... just call me Al, everyone does..." He stopped speaking when she leaned in closer, almost to the point where she could kiss him without problem. His face flushed and heated up as a scarlet blush covered his face from being so close to her. He felt the sudden urge to lean forward himself and kiss her and fought it as best as he could, though the embarrassing blush remained. He looked at her face, still fighting his urges. Everything about her was provocative, her body, her dress, hell even her scent invoked animalistic wants and desires.
Desperate, he lifted up his book in an attempt to hide his blushing. " I. uh... well... you see... ah damn it..." Al sputtered nervously. He'd always been nervous around girls... and considering his old feelings for Rouze, it made it difficult to speak, let alone think, around her.

More happy than ever she smiled at this guy blush, it was so interesting how he could save a girl from the hands of a Neanderthal but he couldn't just speak with out blushing, well so was that fact that she was almost kissing him. But enough. She leaned in her chair and crossed her legs, if leaned in his chair he could perfectly see her legs and maybe what was between them. Her dress had a heart cut in the chest, so it would be easy for her to get undressed, all those thoughts ran trough Rouze mind trying to get them to his mind. Oh it was so funny to be a Demon, she didn't even remembered how was like to be a human. But while he stopped talking, well if that was a conversation..." I. uh... well... you see... ah damn it...". Rouze laughed and the sound of it was like bells, so angelical but at the same she caught everyone's attention. "What's that book?" she said trying to change the subject, besides the fact she loved to read and being in touch with every single thing. Her favorite book was this one called um mm "El martillo de las brujas" aka "Maleus Maleficarum" and she wouldn't doubt to use it against the witches, mostly the ones at the Parthenon. "You're a very interesting guy, you know that?" she said in an odd way, maybe because she wasn't planning anymore, she was saying the truth, he was very interesting to her, maybe enough to let him with life.

Al's eyes kept unconsciously moving back to Rouze's face. Her laugh was gorgeous, and it made him want to join in, but he withheld again, trying to keep himself from doing something he might regret later. When she asked what he was reading he hesitated for a second before shrugging then laying the book down and rotating it so she could see the contents, including the diagram of a female human body being dissected with a line of beautiful lettering next to it that read Be careful to preserve the body as much as you can for later use in case of failed binding, lost elements such as water may be added later on if the body becomes dried out.
Al looked at her then explained. "This book is written for... people like me..." he kept his voice low, "People who just happen to be interested in bringing back the dead..."
Al's face heated up even more fiercely when she called him interesting. In all honesty he thought he wasn't all that interesting, quite the opposite, he thought he was one of the plainest people in the world. A bookworm intern with an interest in bringing back his family, that was all. He sputtered, trying to speak again, but the words he wanted to say got stuck in his throat. Out of the corner of his eye he saw the two men look over, the one who he had told off cracked his fist then ran his thumb across his throat.
Great... another guy who thinks he can kill me... Well, we'll see later...

"This book is written for... people like me..." he kept his voice low, "People who just happen to be interested in bringing back the dead..." Rouze twisted her mouth, what is he trying to mean by that? is he trying to scare me? hell no, I can bring them back, or make them die she thought fiercely, and she then closed her eyes that were about to turn into a bloody red. She sighed and with out open her eyes she took of the table her milkshake and drink it all in one zip.
She slowly opened her eyes, aqua this time, her beautiful lips turned into a kind smile, she ran a hand trough her red hear and almost touched her breast to know everything were in a good position, she didn't wanted to show more to the crowd, and mostly to those stupid brainless that were looking to Al with a murder's face. "Al, why to bring back the dead? when your not even living your own life, besides sometimes death is easy and peaceful" she started with such a vain voice, but ended up with a bitter look, like if she had revealed something of her in the last words.
She sighed and moved her head in a 'no'. She stood up and took her things to leave him there, to live her own personality behind and find something worth to live for, "..." she couldn't say anything, she didn't wanted to say goodbye though. When she passed where those maniacs where, the big one stood up and followed her with his 2 friends...

Al looked at her, as she asked him why he wanted to bring back the dead. Because He thought to himself, his face now flinty and stoic as he did soMy family were stolen from me... i want them back...
Somewhat angry with her question and saying, he replied with a simple question, one full of spite and subtle venom much like the one the Neanderthal man was subjected to. "Rouze.... what would you do if you'd lost everyone dear to you?" He asked quietly as she stood up and grabbed her things. He didn't expect an answer, but as she walked out he watched the men who sat together stand and take after her. Suddenly angry, Al stood himself and followed them at a brisk pace.
What the hell... i swear these moronic little... never mind, i'll kill all of them... i could use the practice...

"Rouze.... what would you do if you'd lost everyone dear to you?" That question was around rouze's mind, of course she knew what was it like, to loose everything, but what could a human of this years comprehend about 'lost', of course nothing, like her, everyone was so material, but how egotistical was Al, he only was thinking of have them back, not thinking about what would they like too, what if they were good in hell, heaven, or even in another life, being others persons, but she was so angry with that fact that she didnt saw coming the 3 huge guys that followed her down street.
She was mad, and cursing everything around her, maybe she wasnt angry, but jealous of him, he had the thought of bring them back, his family, and she would loved to have someone that do that for her, to bring her back of death. But it was too late, she was beyond death now. She kept walking and it was mostly dark, but with huge lights upon the street, she turned around in the corner and saw this guy, "hey would you like some company" the big guy said with a dork voice, "get the hell out of my way" she said tired of stupid games, she could blow them off anytime.
Then she turned around to undo her steps and 2 guys were just in front of her, "C'mon baby I promise It wont hurt" the other guy kept saying shit. Now angry she turned to kill him but she couldn't touch him because he had a Rosary in his neck, her hand was in the air, when it was supposed to be around his neck, she tried to kill him, and she couldn't because of that god damnit necklace.
They guys stared at her laughing because of her fail intent to kill them, "Wha-at?" she said to herself trying to beat the others guys but she couldn't, she was loosing powers? what in hell happened to her? didn't she feed well? For the first time she felt unprotected. This big guy pushed her against the wall and started to try and get his fingers inside of her dress, uughhhhhhh she was very angry but more desperate, "Stop it!" she screamed.

Al followed the four, watching them intently, his eyes coldly observing them. When the sun had nearly gone down they made their move against her, laughter and pointed chortles echoing in Al's ears, swelling up his anger even greater until it felt as if he was going to burst at the seems and the fire within would consume everything in its path. Thinking quickly he placed his book in a small pouch in his backpack, even as Rouze screamed. Even more angry now, he closed the pack then turned and sprinted at them, slapping both of his hands together just before he got to the man harassing Rouze.
the man's buddies stopped laughing as the man staggered forward as Al's hands touched the back of his chest, a small spark of red light emitting from where Al's pale hands touched him. Suddenly the man groaned then turned before coughing up a mouthful of blood before falling face first in the ground, a pool of blood pouring from his mouth.
Still furious Al ran forward, clapped his hands again then placed them on the second man's head, who was still in shock at what had happened. The man screamed a bit before the same red light appeared then blood began running freely out of his ears, mouth, nose and eyes. At this point the last of the three took of running down the small alley, panicking even more as Al tore after him then knocked him down by sliding like a baseball player into his legs.
Picking himself up, Al glared at the man as he tried crawling away. Clapping his hands together again, he placed on hand on both of the man's legs, the leg suddenly exploding and drenching Al's pants in crimson blood. "You threatened to rape a woman... Well... You wanna know what i think about scum like you? people like you, should go to HELL!" Al screamed as he slapped his hands again then placed them on the man's head, fast as a humming bird's wing then watched as it erupted into a fountain of red gore.

Rouze didnt saw coming this guy.. Al. what is he doing? she quickly thought, then she saw how he did a hole in the guy's chest, she wasn't scared but yes very freeze, how could this be? he was a human only, something she couldn't do, was now this human job? it was fair definitely. But he killed the 3 guys, something that left her with her mouth in an 'O', what was he? no no that wasn't the question, she could smell him as a human, but what was he into?
She slowly walked to the middle of the street watching the dead body's around her, she looked back at him, then at the bodies with a rare gaze, not even scared but bewildered to be precise. "What are you?" she said not wanting to say that "I mean your a human, but ... interesting, very interesting" she said ending the words with a smirk and passing her hand trough her hair. "So...would you like to go somewhere else..." she said obviously trying to get off of the scene where the justice wasn't fair enough.
She walked to him and when she touched his hand, she got an electric shot in her hand that ran trough her sick veins, pain, but delicious. She smiled hold his hand with hers while she started to walk. "Al... would you mind if..." she didn't finished when she suddenly kissed him with passion, throwing her hand bag to the floor and folding her arms around his neck. "Thanks" she whispered in his ear, then she kissed his neck, very warm and softly.

Al glared at the bodies for a second then relaxed then placed his hands on his pants, the blood suddenly seeming to evaporate off of the baggy blue jeans. Pleased with his work, Al stood up again then walked over to Rouze, a look of apology crossing his worn face.
"Well... that book taught me a lot more than bringing animals back to life... it also taught me how to destroy animals and humans with ease... i basically destroyed them from the inside out... but... i went overboard with the last two... they weren't meant to literally blow up..." Al rubbed the back of his head before answering her first question. "I'm a Necromancer... a person who can reanimate the bodies of animals and sometimes people by binding weak, obedient spirits to my will... i also can use my powers to completely destroy organic material, such as people..."
When Rouze touched his hand, he felt a small bit of his power zap her, much like a powerful bolt of static electricity. Shocked by what had happened he started to apologize when she started walking away, him in tow.
Wait... what? how, no... Why, oh screw it... I give up... He sighed inwardly before Rouze suddenly turned around and kissed him, the passion in her lips and body easily detectable. he stared off into space when she back off for a second and thanked him before kissing him on the neck. Again his emotions waged against his mind, rendering his body nearly immobile, before he slowly wrapped his arms around her, enjoying the warmth of her body on his and the sensation of her lips on his neck.
