Nowhere Motel; Closed

While driving along on a quiet detour road, Muse A’s car starts spewing smoke from beneath the hood. Thankfully, it’s still midday and when Muse A pokes their head out through the lowered window they’re able to make it to the closest motel before the car breaks down. Muse A has to use the phone in the motel’s main office to call a tow truck because their cell phone isn’t getting signal way out here. While speaking with the tow company, Muse A realizes that the motel owner seems a little off. He’s creepily quiet and eyeing them a little too hard for their taste. Finding out that the tow truck won’t come until the next morning, Muse A decides to check into the motel. What else can they do?

As Muse A heads outside to get their bag from the trunk, Muse B follows and offers help. Muse B is related to the motel owner and works there in several capacities; housekeeping and grounds-keeping mainly. Muse A permits Muse B to carry their bag to the room, but is startled when Muse B blocks them from going inside once they get there. Muse B warns Muse A not to stick around at the motel once the sun goes down but doesn’t say why before rushing off. Muse A gets a weird vibe which only grows weirder as Muse A goes in search of the vending machines for a snack and encounters another guest at the motel. The guest has the same zoned out, pale look that the motel owner had and two odd-looking marks on their neck that peek out from the collar of their shirt. Muse A doesn’t encounter too many other guests on the way back to their room, though the parking lot is occupied by a few other cars. Muse A does their best to shirk off Muse B’s warning, but makes sure to bolt the door as the sun disappears from view.

Unable to sleep, Muse A begins to hear strange noises in the room connected to theirs. At first it sounds like there’s a struggle between two people, then it’s suddenly quiet and there’s a knock at their door. Muse A pretends to be asleep, ignoring the knock, but to their horror someone starts working the lock and somehow pushes the bolt out of place from the other side of the door. The last thing Muse A remembers before waking up the next morning is the face of Muse C, the tall mysterious figure with long, sharp teeth who broke into their room..and the dark, fresh blood that was dripping down from Muse C’s mouth.

Muse A finds tender, red marks on their neck like they saw on the other motel guest but they can’t put two and two together. They’ve forgotten about the tow truck that was supposed to come for them and for some reason they want to stay another night at the motel. Muse C must’ve been some crazy, vivid dream and maybe the marks are mosquito bites, Muse A reasons. What Muse A doesn’t know is that the motel is inhabited by vampires who feed off the guests by night and compel them to forget. Having seen many guests come to the motel and never leave, Muse B is tired of letting innocent people be harmed, including their relative who owns the motel.

Will Muse B save Muse A from a horrible fate at the hands of Muse C and their kind?

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The sounds of Glass Animal's filled the car as Sissy drove down the highway. She had finally talked her best, and only friend Sierra into going on a road trip with her. She wasn't in the mood to go alone, and she wanted the company. She turned her head towards the woman next to her and smirked lightly. [#DDB9B9 "Are you having second thoughts?"] she asked as she reached out and turned the volume down. The two hadn't really talked much, because Sissy had been focused on the road, but since there wasn't anyone else around, she was able to talk.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She had been looking forward to this trip for the longest time, and she hadn't wanted to go alone. She was tired of staying at home, and when she finally had enough money saved up, was when she had approached Sierra, and asked her to come with her. She had explained everything over and over a couple of times, but Sierra had finally agreed to going. The two were going to be gone for a couple of weeks, and they were in the middle of nowhere at the moment. The heat was getting to Sissy though.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "I know it's not ideal for you, but I'm so glad you agreed to come along. I really am"] she said as she smiled warmly towards the other woman. She then turned her attention back to the road, and drummed her fingers against the steering wheel. She was itching to get out of the car though too. Her legs were starting to cramp, and she needed a good, long streach. She started looking for a place to pull over, and spotted a sign about a motel about five miles away. Perfect.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "So a couple more minutes, and we can finally get out! Hell might as well stop here for the night, and see what this place has to offer"] she said lightly. It's been awhile since she's seen anything related to buildings, and she was kind of excited. She was kind of nervous though. Why would there be only one motel, in the middle of nowhere, and no town around? That's what was sending alarm bells through her mind, but she ignored them. She wanted to get out, streach her legs, and stay out of the car for a little while.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 About five minutes later, she was pulling off the exit, and following the signs to the motel. Sure enough it was the only building around, and as soon as she started to slow down, the car started to smoke. Her heart dropped into her stomach, as she realized it was starting to overheat. She shut off the AC, the radio, and rolled the windows down. The only thing she hated about this piece of shit car, was it never worked the way she wanted it too. She bit her lower lip lightly as she car slowed even more.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "Fuck.."] she breathed out. She spotted the motel not that far ahead, and hoped the car would make it there, before finally breaking down. She pushed the car a bit more, and the gas pedal was all the way to the floor, but the car was still slowing. Right when the nose of the car reached the buildings front, was when it fully died. She bit her lip lightly as she took her foot off the gas pedal, put the car into park and looked up at the building before her. Her heart racing.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She bit the inside of her cheek as she all of a sudden didn't want to be here. It was giving her an odd feeling. She looked towards Sierra, and sighed lightly. [#DDB9B9 "Stay here, I'll see if anyone is around"] she said as she unbuckled her seatbelt, and climbed out. When she did, the heat hit her full force, and she wanted to get back into the car, and peel out of here. She knew it wouldn't happen though, the car was dead. She walked into the main building and looked around. It was silent, too silent for her liking.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "Hello? Anyone here?"] she called out. There was no one around. She didn't hear anyone walking either. She stood there for a good three minutes before she went back to the car, and slid behind the wheel. [#DDB9B9 "No one's inside, and I don't know what to do... There's nothing here.."] she breathed out. She was starting to have a small panic attack, and she put her head into her hands. She closed her eyes, took some deep breaths, and stayed that way for a little bit, hoping that Sierra would have some sort of idea on what to do from here.]]

Kind of around, but not really

As music filled the interior of the car, similar to the heat that poured in through the windows, Sierra found herself humming along. Her elbow rested against the door frame, just below the window to help prop her head up as she watched the endless stretch of sand and dust race past them. That was the only sight to behold aside from the hectic and monstrous sea of cars, shifting from highway to highway as the girls inched closer to their intended destination. As the music died to a soft hum through the car speakers, and Sissy finally spoke; Sierra’s head turned, her hazel eyes twinkling with a bit of mischief. 

    [i “Second thoughts? Of course not. You practically begged me to get in the car in the first place.”] Her tone was teasing and almost sarcastic but well intended. Sierra brought her knees to her chest, taking a moment to kick off the gray sandals she wore on her feet. Her clothing was simple, a pair of denim shorts that stopped at the middle of her thighs, and a slate colored t-shirt that hung off her frame. 

    Hunger gnawed at her stomach steadily, Sierra reaching down to the floor of the passenger seat to dig through the canvas bag she had piled with food, water, and a portable charger for their phones. She had always been a tad paranoid while traveling, never wanting to feel helpless or stranded. Her eyes focused as the faded paint of the motel sign came into view, something strangely eerie about it. 

    [i “Oh please. It wouldn’t have been ideal for me to sit at home while you’re on the road for weeks on end. Who else am I going to bother?”] Sierra mused, her brow arching playfully as her gaze focused back on the sign. [i “Stopping doesn’t seem like a half bad idea, but I’m not too keen on the whole “Hills Have Eyes” vibes this place gives off.”] She was referring to the barren landscape the two women found themselves in. It seemed almost isolating, the uneasy pang of anxiety beginning to form in the back of her throat. She pushed it away the best she could, exhaling softly and fanning her face with her hand as the AC seemingly faltered. 

    When smoke began to billow from beneath the hood of the car, her eyes widened in shock; her worst fears seemingly jumping to life. She cursed under her breath as their vehicle slowly pulled to a painful stop, the looming building of the motel staring them down in the harsh heat. She barely had time to react before the unclipping of the seatbelt and Sissy’s voice cut through her thoughts, a frown pulling down the corner of her lips. 

    [i “You’re not seriously going in there alone?] She tried to protest, watching almost helplessly as her friend gallantly made her way inside. She waited for what felt like centuries, nervously drumming her fingers on her knee and sitting up a bit in her seat as Sissy made her way back to the car. She took a moment to slide her shoes on quickly, unhooking her own belt. 

    [i “No one there?”] She thought for a long moment, the concept feeling foreign. She was trying to think of their best course of action, pausing for a moment when she noticed Sissy's irregular breathing. [i "Hey! Hey! It'll be alright. We'll figure this out. There's gotta be a phone in there we can use to call a tow truck or something."] She offered a small smile, doing her best to be reassuring.
StolenRelics-nowнere   48d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Sissy knew that Sierra was trying to be helpful, and that seemed to calm her nerves a little bit. She lifted her head and looked towards the woman beside her. [#DDB9B9 "When I went inside, it was like a ghost town pretty much. The silence was really eerie, and this place is really giving me bad vibes. I just wish I had gotten this fucking thing fixed months ago"] she muttered lightly. She was just glad she wasn't alone right now. If she had been, she would be freaking out even more. She sighed lightly looking out the windshield.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 As she sat there the heat getting to her, she thought she had seen a shadow behind the building. She sat up slowly and narrowed her eyes. [#DDB9B9 "Did you see that?"] she asked lightly. She wasn't about to stay here any longer. She looked towards the other as she tried to start the car to get the windows rolled up. It wouldn't even start. Great, just what she needed. The car was fully broken down, and they were in the middle of nowhere, with no other signs of people around. That and the sun would be setting soon.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She was thinking about getting out and looked to see what happened, but thought better of it. [#DDB9B9 "I could be seeing things.. But I don't know.. What do you think we should do? Do we get out and see if anyone's around? Or wait until the sun goes down?"] she asked. She didn't want to stay in the hot car longer than she had too. She was just all around confused on what to do. She drummed her fingers against the wheel, as her mind spun with what to do. Would they be safe here?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She looked around at the building, and wondered if anyone had been in the back. She didn't know. She was torn. She wanted to go and find any sign of people, but at the same time something told her to stay where she was. She chewed on her lower lip as she waited for Sierra to put in her own ideas. She reached for the water bottle in the car door and opened it, taking a sip. She then twisted the cap back on, and wrapped her fingers around the bottle. She sat there looking out the window.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 This place had nobody. There was no signs of life, but the motel didn't look abandoned. Maybe it was one of those, that was only open at night. She checked the time and saw they had a little over a half hour before the sun fully set. She turned towards the other just then. [#DDB9B9 "Once the sunsets, I think we should both go in and see if anyone's there. Or see if we can get some sort of service on our phones"] she said lightly. Speaking of that, she reached for her phone just then.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She pressed the home button and realized there was no service at all. There weren't any type of poles around them either, which was even weirder. What kind of place was this? She wished she hadn't pulled off the freeway, but if she hadn't, the car would have exploded or something. She sat there fighting with herself a little while longer. She then fell silent, as she waited for Sierra to speak.]]

Kind of around, but not really

Sierra seemed to be in thought at Sissy’s description of the place, her hands resting in her lap. [i “Don’t beat yourself up over the car, stuff like this happens. It just happened at a really bad time.”] She offered with a lopsided smile, raking her hand through her short black tresses of hair. Her gaze locked onto the sun which was slowly making its way down to the horizon. 

The heat was definitely harsh, beads of sweat beginning to drip down the back of her neck, which she did her best to wipe away. Her head perked up when Sissy spoke once more, her eyes going to where her head had been facing. Her eyes squinted, trying her best to see what she had been referring to. She reached down to grab her bag, clasping it shut and swinging it over her shoulder. She exhaled softly and smiled once more.

[i “Look, don’t be so freaked out, ok? Could just be a possum or something, or could just be the sun playing tricks on you.”] As she spoke, her index finger poked at her own temple. Sierra did her best to assess the situation, their options weren’t many. Baking alive in this metal box didn't seem ideal, but neither did skulking around some creepy building. 

[i “Sis, let’s head inside now while there’s still natural light. I’d rather not be exploring in the dark. The car should be ok here, we take the essentials like our phones and bags.”] She nodded to herself in affirmation of her plan, opening the passenger side door and stepping out. The sand was unbearably hot beneath her sandal soles, the sweat becoming more prominent on her skin. Her hands brushed off the front of her shirt and she looked back into the car. 

[i “C’mon, let’s start looking and stick together. Anything comes after us and I’ll take care of it.”] She chuckled, trying her best to lighten the mood. The building seemed almost intimidating, it was just weird there were no people or no other cars around. Sierra thought the owner would at least be around, there were no houses or anything indicating that whoever was around lived outside of the motel itself to run it. She swallowed back the dryness in her mouth, reaching into her bag to pull out the small flask of water she had on hand. 

Staying here for the night was kind of their last option if it could be helped, a tow truck or someone who could point them in the right direction to get it fixed was ideal. Sierra couldn’t shake the feeling they were being watched, as strange as that sounded. She waited for Sissy to leave the car before making her way to the front door of the main building, adjusting the bag strap on her shoulder nervously.
StolenRelics-nowнere   47d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 As the woman spoke, she knew it was better to stick together. She nodded lightly as she grabbed the keys and slipped them into her pocket. They were pretty useless. She bit her lip lightly as she looked around the place. It really was deserted. She didn't like this at all. She bit her lower lip as she looked towards the motel door's again. [#DDB9B9 "I'm not sure anyone's going to be there. I don't like this at all.."] she breathed out. She was kind of scared, but she wasn't about to fully show it.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Sissy let out a small breath as she walked towards the doors once more, and drew them open. [b [i 'Find a way to leave, and now! It's not safe here, you and your friend are in danger']] came a voice through her mind. She paused for a moment and looked around. It was just her and Sierra. That was really strange. [#DDB9B9 "Did you hear someone speak just now?"] she asked. She hoped that Sierra would have heard something, but she didn't know. The voice sounded like it was in her mind and that was it. That was strange.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Right as she stepped back through the door, there was a male standing there, and he looked up when they came inside. Maddox smiled warmly at the two women. [#b4c8ee "Hello to you both. Did you just arrive?"] he asked as he placed a log book onto the counter top in front of him. Sissy was kind of surprised to see the man. No one had been here when she first came in, and now she looked like a liar in front of Sierra. She shook he head lightly. [#DDB9B9 "Not really no"] she admitted.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "We've been here for almost an hour. I came in a while ago and no one was here.."] she said lightly. Maddox shook his head lightly and looked between the two. [#b4c8ee "I'm so sorry about that. We normally don't open until the sun's set. I'll have to make sure to place a note on the door. Again I do apologize"] he said as he looked them both up and down. A small smirk passed over his lips as he did. He then turned to the log book and turned it towards Sissy, and nodded towards it.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "If you'd like to sign here, I'll get you both a room. Do you want one of your own? Or do you one together?"] he asked. [#DDB9B9 "Together if possible, with two beds please"] Sissy said as she reached for the pen on the counter and signed her name. [#DDB9B9 "Do you also have a phone by chance? My car broke down and I need to call a tow truck"] she said with a sheepish smile. Maddox shook his head lightly. [#b4c8ee "I'm sorry we don't have a phone. I do have someone who works on car's though"]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "He will be in later tonight. Is it the car out front?"] he asked. Sissy nodded lightly setting the pen down, and pulled her card out of her wallet. [#DDB9B9 "Yes, if he could work on it tonight, it would make my life so much easier"] she said. Maddox nodded lightly as he took the card in front of him, and swiped it for her. He then handed it back, and grabbed two room keys. [#b4c8ee "Your room is around back, room number 205"] he said handing Sissy the keys. The blonde took them and thanked him before grabbed Sierra's arm.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She led the woman out the front door. Being around that male was enough to make the hairs on her arms stand on end. She popped the trunk and grabbed her bags out of the trunk. She then waited for Sierra to do the same. She didn't dare say anything until they were behind closed doors. This place was creepy enough as is. Her heart was hammering inside of her chest. She waited for the woman to grab her things, and shut the trunk. She then went around the back, and found their room number.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She put the key into the lock, and pushed the door open. She slipped inside and let the other in as well. She then closed the door behind them, and locked it. She dropped her bag onto the floor and turned to face her. [#DDB9B9 "Was it just me, or was he strange? And why is there no damn phones?"] she asked, her voice shaking a bit with fear. At least she wasn't alone, and they were behind a locked door for now. She hoped that the car would be fixed tomorrow morning, and they could get the hell out.]]

Kind of around, but not really

Sierra looked to Sissy with a small frown, exhaling the breath that was seemingly hitched in the back of her throat. To be completely transparent, she was absolutely terrified. [i “Hey let’s try to be positive, Sis. If no one is inside, we can look for a phone ourselves.”] She offered a weak laugh, clutching the strap of her bag tightly. 

She stepped forward as she did, ready to enter the doors with whatever courage she could muster. Her head turned when Sis spoke once more, her brow furrowing. [i “I haven’t heard anything, don’t try to scare me! Right now, isn’t a time to be playing around!”] She huffed; her face flushed in embarrassment for getting so flustered. 

She stepped into the motel lobby and froze, staring at the male behind the counter in a bit of shock. I thought she said this place was empty. She absent-mindedly chewed on the inside of her cheek, a bad habit she had developed whenever she was overly anxious. Something felt really off about this guy. There were no cars around except for their own, and they hadn’t seen him pull up with anyone or walk in. Where did he come from? Everything about this situation just felt so wrong. She listened to the conversation between the two, shifting in her spot uncomfortably. 

She caught his eye for a moment, what the hell kind of look was that? Her brow furrowed in annoyance, and she watched Sissy sign the logbook. Felt more like signing away their lives if Sierra had an opinion about it. She almost turned and sprinted as soon as the transaction was done, wanting to be out of that guy’s field of vision. She paused only when Sissy grabbed her arm, her body tensing beneath her touch. 

[i “I really DON’T like this, Sis. That dude gives me the creeps.”] She muttered beneath her breath as she pulled her duffel bag from the trunk. She followed her friend to their room, taking note of the doors they passed by and the closed curtains to seemingly every window of each room. It was eerie. Her cheek stung painfully as it had been chewed raw, Sierra cursing herself in her head for not noticing. 

When in the safety of their room walls, Sierra let out a shaky breath, raking her hands through her hair. [i “Yeah... No phones, it’s a huge red flag.”] Her eyes darted around the room, almost like a scared animal. She threw her duffel bag on the bed, stretching her arms above her head. [i “I get the feeling that this room is bugged. I’m going to take a look around.”] She muttered, heading into the small bathroom the room provided.
StolenRelics-nowнere   46d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 So, she wasn't the only one that had gotten a strange vibe off of the male behind the counter. She wanted to be anywhere else than here. She nodded lightly as she watch Sierra. [#DDB9B9 "You know what you are looking for"] she said lightly. She set her things on the other bed, and sat down. She put her head in her hands, and tried to calm her racing heart. So Sierra hadn't heard the voice back at the front of the motel. Was she hearing things now? Or was it really a warning? She didn't know.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She slowly looked up to the bedroom mirror, and looked at herself. She looked so pale and scared. Well in a way, she was scared. She didn't know what to do with herself. She wanted to be back in her car, back on the road, and heading towards town. She didn't care if there was someone who could look at their car. She wanted it to be done now, and wanted to get back on the road later that night. [#DDB9B9 "Anything?"] she asked as she stood and walked over to the small desk and mirror.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She opened the drawer and was surprised to see a bible there. She pulled it out slowly and started flipping through it. At least this was somewhat normal. She shut the book and set it down. She then went through the rest of the drawer. She found a couple of notepads, and a pen, and that was about it. She put the bible back into the drawer and closed it. She turned and looked around the small room. She then moved to the window and pulled the curtain aside slowly, and peered out. There was a car parked there.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She wondered if that belonged to the male up front. She chewed on her lower lip as she let the curtain fall back into place. [#DDB9B9 "Well I know where that guy parked. There's a car back here, and I think someone else just pulled up as well"] she called out. She had seen a pair of headlights coming their way. She wrapped her arms around herself as she moved back over to her bed, and sat back down. She didn't know the man's name, but he knew her's. She just hoped someone would come and talk about the car.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "So I was thinking, maybe if whomever gets the car fixed tonight, we leave first thing in the morning."] she said. That's when she heard feet pattering across the boards, and a shadow passed over the window. Her heart skipped a beat, as she stood and moved back to the window. That was really strange, it was a child. Shouldn't the child be in bed right now? What the hell was this place? Did they just hide in the hotel rooms until the sun set? It would explain things a little bit.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 If that child belonged to someone, where was their car? There was so many things she wanted to ask, but didn't know where to even start. She turned back and faced Sierra. [#DDB9B9 "What do you think?"] she asked. She fell silent letting the woman have time to speak about what's on her mind, and leaving first thing in the morning.]]

Kind of around, but not really

Sierra explored the tiny bathroom feverishly, pulling open cabinets and checking every crevice she could think of. She pulled open the shower curtain, the worn and dirty tiled walls staring back at her with nothing to offer but a bit of unease. Gross. She let go of the curtain, leaning her back against the door to take a moment to compose herself. All of this felt so off. 

She was pulled out of her thoughts as she was called to, taking a moment to open the door and peak her head out. [i “Other than shitty housekeeping? No. Nothing I can see. I have to check the rest of the room. All of this feels really bad, Sissy.”] She stepped out into the main room, plopping down onto one of the empty beds. [i “How about you? You find anything?”] 

When another vehicle was mentioned, she stood, walking over to the window. That’s so weird they didn’t see or hear anything. She raked her hand through her hair, letting out a shaky breath. [i “We have to approach this delicately...”] She began to speak, letting go of the curtain, freezing when the small shadow ran by as the cheap material cut off whatever sunlight the window provided into the room. 

That was just about her breaking point. This was some nocturnal freakshow or something? She walked to her bag, digging through it and pulling her phone out, checking her service. Maybe half a bar, of course that was their luck. She looked back to Sierra, trying to keep it together.

[i “I don’t want to rely on Creepo at the desk, Sis. I don’t like any of this, it feels weird and almost... Unreal.”] She scratched the back of her neck, putting her phone back in her bag. [i “We don’t have many choices. We wait out the night, then get the fuck out of here when the car is fixed.”] Sierra was half tempted to hoof it at this point, try to get back to the highway and hitch a ride. That was unwise, sure there were weirdos here but ones out on the road could be 100 times worse. 

[i “We keep the door locked... I’m half tempted to barricade it.”] She muttered, eyeing a chair situated by the desk. She looked back to Sissy with a halfcocked smile, trying to lighten the mood. [i “I mean it when I said I’ll take care of whatever comes after us Sis.”]
StolenRelics-nowнere   40d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The blonde looked up when Sierra came out of the bathroom. She shook her head lightly. [#DDB9B9 "No I didn't find anything either. This place is giving me really bad vibes, and I honestly don't like it. I shouldn't have pulled off the highway, and if I hadn't we'd be stuck in the damn car"] she said as she laid back onto the bed. She listened as the other spoke. She shuddered lightly when Sierra talked about the creepo at the front desk. She knew it was a long shot, but she wanted to get the car and now.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "I know we shouldn't even leave the safety of the room, but I think we should at least go and see about the car getting fixed tonight. Think of some sort of lie or something, to make sure it's taken care of by morning. Not sure what type of lie, but something good. Something that'll light a fire under their asses, and make them realize we really do need to leave"] she said as she propped herself up onto her elbows watching her best friend. She knew it was kind of pointless, but they had to try.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She stayed in that position as she tried to think of what to tell the man at the front. That's when a really high pitched giggle, pierced the air. [b "Mommy! I want to go swimming!"] came the sound of a child's voice right outside of their room. Sissy nearly fell off the bed from the sound. [b [i "I know you do honey. We need to see if there's a pool though, I didn't see anything"]] came the sound of a woman's voice. There were a couple more footsteps that passed their room.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Sissy didn't realize she was holding her breath, until she blew it out. [#DDB9B9 "Well.. Sounds like there's other's here.. You didn't see a pool did you?"] she asked. She hoped that the child wouldn't be too let down. Then again, they hadn't looked around either, and she was kind of curious. At least there were other's around. She did feel a bit safer being in the room, she just didn't know how long she could stay in here. That's when the sound of an ice machine could be heard as well. Her stomach growled too.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "I forgot about the food in the car.."] she breathed out. She didn't want to go out there, but she was getting a really bad feeling that they would have too. She didn't want to go out there alone either. Normally she'd be all for going alone, but she didn't want to go anywhere without Sierra. That and they still needed to come up with a good ass story, about why they needed the car as soon as tomorrow morning. She sat up a bit more, and shifted onto the bed, and pulled her legs under her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She fell silent again, as she thought about a story. She lifted her head and looked towards the other. [#DDB9B9 "What if we told them, that one of our family member's was having a baby? We have to get there by tomorrow evening, because you or I really need to be there?"] she asked. It was the best she could think of at the moment. She wondered if Sierra would be able to help think of something as well. She tapped her chin lightly, as she looked towards the curtains, wondering if there's going to be other surprises coming their way.]]

Kind of around, but not really

[font "Times New Roman" Sierra shook her head as Sissy made the attempt to blame herself, taking a seat on the opposing bed. Her arms resting on her knees as she thought for a long moment, taking in the idea of creating some sort of excuse to reach their collective goal a bit quicker. She was beginning to chew on the inside of her cheek again, silently cursing herself when the sting of pain burned red hot into her nerves. 

“Ok, ok. What about this? My mom is dying, we gotta get to the hospital in whatever town we can think of right now to get there before she passes. If that doesn’t get them moving then they’re heartless.” That damned grin spread across her lips again. “I’ll even turn the waterworks on to really sell it.” She couldn’t help but laugh, the idea to her seeming almost childish. 

She practically jumped out of her skin at the ringing of the child’s voice, having to compose herself when the realization hit her. So there were others? That was so strange. And what child would want to swim in the dark, aren’t most kids terrified of it? That uneasy sensation was beginning to creep back, Sierra doing her best to ignore it. Her eyes locked back onto Sis, clearing her throat awkwardly. 

“I didn’t see a pool, no. But doesn’t that come off as weird…?” She stood from her spot, walking over to the window and opening the curtain a tad bit to see if she could catch a glimpse of the passing pair, her throat feeling unnervingly dry. When the mention of food was uttered, her stomach seemingly groaned in agreement. 

“I completely forgot about the food… We should go get it before it spoils in the heat.” She looked back and smiled, letting the curtain fall shut. “We can go out and get a look around too on our way back.” Sierra held her hand out towards Sissy, waiting for affirmation for her freshly brewed plan. A good look at their surroundings couldn’t hurt.]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Knowing that Sierra was good at turning the water works off and on, made her wonder why the woman hadn't gone into acting. She would make a wonderful actress. Sissy nodded lightly. [#DDB9B9 "I mean it couldn't hurt. I just don't know what town's are nearby, and we don't really have service to check and see where we are. Not sure a map would help either"] she muttered lightly. She watched as the woman went to the window and peeked out. Everything was really strange. Why would everyone be up and roaming around this late at night?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "This whole place is strange.. I would be pissed if I had a child, and they were up at all hours of the night"] she said lightly. She slipped her hand into Sierra's and stood. She was getting more and more hungry as she talked about the food. At least they had the ice chest, and there was an ice maker somewhere, so maybe they could fill the ice chest up, and make sure the food didn't rot. She bit her lip lightly as she made sure the key was in hand, along with her car keys.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "We might as well get a move on. I don't want to be out there any longer than we have too. And if we run into the male from the office again, we can see when they are going to start working on the car"] she said softly. She made sure her car keys were in hand, before she opened the motel room door, and stepped out. The heat hitting her like a slap in the face. She made a mental note to crank the AC up when they got back to the room.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She waited for the other to join her, and she linked her arm with her's, as she made her way back towards the front of the motel. When she looked up, she saw a couple of people across the way, and they lifted their hand towards them. Sissy raised her free hand as well. Might as well be nice, and not show how scared she really was. This place was strange, and she couldn't help but wonder whom would be around. She then turned her eyes back to the walk way in front of her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 When she rounded the corner, she stopped short when she saw the male from the front office, standing talking to another male. She couldn't help but admire how the other male looked. He was pretty attractive, and her heart seemed to skip a beat at the sight of him. He wasn't much older than she was either. She bit the inside of her cheek lightly as they walked towards them. Maddox looked towards them and smiled lightly. [#b4c8ee "Speaking of which, here they are now. They are the ones needing the car to be fixed"] he said in a warm tone of voice.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "Amon this is Sissy Ashmore, and her friend, I'm sorry I can't remember your name dear"] he said with a warm smile towards the two. Sissy looked towards Amon and nodded lightly. [#DDB9B9 "Not sure what your friend here told you, but we do need our car to be looked at, and we really need to make sure it's done by tomorrow morning"] she said in a small voice. She was nervous for some strange reason, and she didn't know why. There was something about the man with Maddox that captured her interest.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "Amon here was the one I was telling you about, he's good with working on cars. I'll make sure I'm there as well to help. It should be fixed by tomorrow morning, but it depends on what's wrong with the car all together. Right Amon?"] he asked looking towards the other male. Sissy stood there and watched the two of them. It was strange, but she all of a sudden wasn't in a rush to leave this strange place. She fell silent watching the two men before her.]]

Kind of around, but not really

[font "Times New Roman" Sierra rubbed the back of her neck with her free hand before sighing. [#B266FF “Any place would be better than here. We can make something up on the way there.”] She eyed the darkened sky from outside the window wearily. She was never a fan of the dark, nor was she a fan of creepy motel desk workers or broken down cars. 

She couldn’t help but laugh at Sis’ comment before nodding in agreement. [#B266FF “That seems like most kids though, always eager to be awake at inconvenient times.”] The statement sent a pang of ache through her heart. She missed her nieces and nephews, usually dreading their visits. But in this situation, she couldn’t help but long for her family, or anything familiar for that matter. 

They seemed safe in the room, and outside felt almost like a warzone. Unfamiliar and full of peril at every turn. This was just a motel, why couldn’t she shake this feeling? They had stayed at one or two earlier on the trip but nothing chalked up to the vibes this place gave off. It felt almost like a graveyard, Sierra half expecting one of the doors lining the hallway to thrust open and some sort of monster grab her and pull her into the darkness within. She was getting lost in her own thoughts, coming back to reality when the heat was making her sweat again. The sun was down but it was still so damn hot. 

[#B266FF “Aren’t deserts supposed to be cool at night?”] She couldn’t help but groan with her words, using the back of her hand to wipe her forehead. The hand occupying Sissy’s only seemed to tighten with anxiety. She watched the new faces from across the way, her anxiety failing to ease at all. They certainly seemed friendly. When did they get in? She found it hard to believe everyone was such a night owl around here. 

Sierra practically slammed into Sissy’s back at the sudden stop, barely stopping herself in time. [#B266FF “What’s wrong, Sis? You almost gave me a heart attack.”] She shook her head, but froze when her eyes gazed upon the two men by the car. She swallowed back the fear that resided in her throat quietly, it felt like two lions were staring down two helpless gazelle. Her other hand gripped Sis’s forearm, her breathing hitched. 

[#B266FF “I really don’t have a good feeling…”] She whispered as the two stepped forward to meet with the men. She listened carefully to the conversation, inspecting the features of the men’s faces with a bit of discomfort. 

Amon smiled, his lips set in a genuine sort of crookedness that seemed welcoming. His amber eyes washed over Sissy with intrigue before he looked back to Maddox, wiping his hands on the front of a white t-shirt to dry off the sweat on his palms. [#FFB266 “Amon Hatem.”] He spoke with a slight accent, though it was hard to place from where. [#FFB266 “A pleasure to meet you ladies.”] 

He rubbed the back of his head, ruffling his dark curls for a moment before glancing at the car that was baking in the heat. [#FFB266 “Any idea what’s wrong with it, or would you rather me play Detective?”] His tone was playful, his arms crossing over his broad chest as he awaited an answer.]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Sissy couldn't help but reach out and shake the male's hand. She had to admit, he was nice on the eyes, and her heart was slamming inside of her chest. She didn't even realize Sierra slamming into her. She shook Amon's hand, before letting go. [#DDB9B9 "It's a pleasure meeting you Amon. This is Sierra. As for the car, it's a piece of total shit.. But I do know it started smoking when we got closer to this place. Even with me pressing down on the gas pedal, it came to a dead stop"] she breathed out.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She didn't know what was coming over her, and she sure as hell didn't know if it was a good thing or not. [#DDB9B9 "I mean, I tried to make sure everything was okay before Sierra and I left for our road trip, and I thought everything was okay.. My friend told me it would be, but considering the mess I'm in now, he lied to me.."] she said softly. She was going to message Maverick when she got service back, and rip into him. She was tired of him telling her that the car was fine, when it wasn't.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She was still uneasy about this whole thing, but she was kind of willing to drop everything because she felt some sort of safety all of a sudden. She looked towards Sierra and shrugged lightly. [#DDB9B9 "Sorry, I didn't mean to stop on a dime either Sierra.."] she said with a sheepish smile. Maddox watched the whole thing and clicked his tongue lightly. [#b4c8ee "I'm not expert on this whole thing, but Amon here is amazing on cars, and I'm sure he'll be able to get everything up and running in a timely manner"] he said.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "We just need the keys to the car, and your permission to do whatever we need too."] he said as his eyes washed over Sierra. He licked his lower lip lightly, before turning his gaze back to Sissy. [#b4c8ee "What do ya say? Do we have your trust and permission to do this?"] he asked her. Sissy nodded lightly as she tore her eyes from Amon, and looked towards Maddox as he spoke. She cleared her throat before speaking. [#DDB9B9 "Yes, please do whatever you need too. If there's any parts that need replacing tell me"] she muttered.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "Just let us get what we need out of the car first, and then you both can have it"] she said as she slipped her hand from Sierra's grasp and went to the trunk and put the key inside. She popped it, and pulled out the ice chest, and the other bags from the trunk. She then made sure everything was taken out of the back seat as well. She then stepped up to Amon, and dropped the key's into his hand. [#DDB9B9 "Take good care of her, I don't trust strangers with my car"]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "So considering I'm trusting you and Maddox with it, is a huge step for me"] she said lightly. She had to tilt her head back to look up into his eyes, and another strange feeling washed over her. She wanted to reach up and touch her lips to his. She shook the thought out of her head, as she took a few steps back, bent down and picked up the bags and handed them to Sierra. She then bent back down and picked up the cooler, and turned her attention away from the two men.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "Don't worry, your car will be in good hands"] Maddox said with a small smile. He then nodded towards Sierra as well. [#b4c8ee "Have a good night, and if we need anything else, we will come and find you"] he said with another smile. Sissy's heart was racing as she walked away from the two men. Was she making a huge mistake leaving their only way of escape behind? She hoped not, but what other choice did she have? She ducked her head down as she made her way back towards their motel room.]]

Kind of around, but not really

[font "Times New Roman" Amon was staring at Sissy while she spoke, only breaking the eye contact they held when the car was finally mentioned. His tongue clicked against the roof of his mouth as he stepped closer, threading his fingers beneath the hood of the car, and popping it open. His dark gaze swept over the mess of mechanical parts before he nodded to himself. [#FFB266 “Seems like your engine just gave out, huh?”] He looked back up with that same smile as before. 

Sierra was shifting uncomfortably in the spot she stood in, watching the two men with a suspicious glare. Why was Sissy acting so weird all of a sudden? Sure these guys were good looking but she wasn’t like herself. She was as scared as Sierra was just a moment ago. [#B266FF “Well, I would hope it would be timely.”] She began, clearing her throat. [#B266FF “We don’t have a ton of time to stay here, I hope you can understand.”] 

She watched almost helplessly as Sissy handed the car keys over to Amon, who in turn slipped them into his back pocket. [#FFB266 “Parts shouldn’t be an issue ladies, you’re already put into a bad spot. I wouldn’t want to run your pockets on top of that.”] He said with a small laugh, closing the hood with a slam and leaning back against it as he watched the two gather their things from the car. [#FFB266 “I wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight either if you didn’t allow us to help you take your things to your room.”] He nudged Maddox with his elbow and a playful smile. 

Sierra was picking up a few bags when she heard the comment, having just about enough at this point. [#B266FF “That really isn’t necessary. We’re more than capable on our own.”] Her tone seemingly surprised Amon, his smile wavering for only a moment. She finished grabbing whatever bags she could and turned to walk behind Sissy, keeping her gaze straight ahead. 

Amon merely shook his head, looking back to the car with a small tilt of his head. [#FFB266 “Feisty one, isn’t that one? That’s all yours.”] He couldn’t help but laugh as he patted Maddox on the back before walking to a red pick up truck parked in the lot. He grabbed a toolbox from the bed and made his way back over, setting it down on the ground and sighing.]
StolenRelics-nowнere   33d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Sissy's mind was racing when she made her way to the room. She stopped outside the door, set the cooler down, and fished the key out of her pocket. She slid the key inside the lock, twisted the knob and shoved the door open. She picked up the cooler once more, and hurried inside. Once Sierra was inside as well, she shut the door behind her, threw the lock, and shoved the chair under the knob. Her heart was hammering inside of her chest. What the hell just happened? Her head was swimming, and her heart hammering inside her chest.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She moved the cooler out of the middle of the walkway, and set it beside the table inside of the room. She turned to the other a small, nervous laugh escaping past her lips. [#DDB9B9 "I don't know what happened back there.. Everything we talked about seemed to vanish from my mind.. Do you think they'll get the car done tonight?"] she asked lightly. She didn't know what had happened, but she knew something about Amon sparked something inside of her. Something she wanted to explore more. He was easy on the eyes after all.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She kicked off her shoes, and moved over to her things on the bed. [#DDB9B9 "I'm going to take a quick shower. If you feel safe enough, will you go and get some ice? If not I'll go and get it when I'm done"] she said as she unzipped her bag, and found some clean clothes, and panties. She then walked towards the bathroom and shut the door behind her. She leaned against it slightly, closing her eyes. Something strange washed over her, and she sure as hell didn't know what to do about it.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She found a towel, and set it on the toilet seat. She then undressed, and started the water. She let it run for a couple of moments before she stepped into the shower. She tilted her head back, closed her eyes, and let the water wash over her skin. This was strange. She still felt slightly light headed, and wondered why. She bit the inside of her cheek lightly, as she took her time in the shower. Everything was happening so fast. She didn't have her car keys, and she felt lost all of a sudden.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 These feelings were odd, and she didn't know how to really explain them. She sighed as she reached for the shampoo that was already in the shower. She took her time, letting her mind wander to the events that happened a little while ago. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad staying here another night. [b [i 'You are insane. Don't fall for the good looks. Keep your guard up, or you'll end up dead']] came the voice again. Sissy's eyes snapped open, and she looked around the small bathroom. She was alone. She turned the heat on the water up more, trying to shake the feeling of the voice inside of her head.]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 As soon as the two were gone, Maddox smirked and looked towards Amon. [#b4c8ee "She's a down right bitch if I say so myself. But that blonde, seemed to be pretty smitten with you already"] he said with a small laugh. The male knew what this place really was, and he knew it would take a bit longer for the car to be fixed. He cocked his head as he looked down towards Amon on the ground. He was curious as to what the other thought of the pair. He knew it was getting closer for them both.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "Do you think Dominick would approve of them? Maybe we should let Lilith out, and see if she can scare them a bit more. Sissy might be able to handle it, but Sierra, I'm not so sure on that one.."] he then trailed off as he knelt down beside Amon on the ground. He clicked his tongue lightly, and looked over his shoulder when Colton came running up to them. [b "Do we have humans here? Can I play with them?"] the child asked. Maddox shook his head lightly, when Colton's mother walked up as well.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ff00ff "I see you've let humans into the motel. Do you know how long they are staying for? I'm pretty sure Dominick would want to meet them both, and see if they would make a good fit for both you and Amon. Hopefully you'll both finally settle down"] the woman cooed. Maddox shook his head lightly, and ruffled Colton's hair. [#b4c8ee "I wouldn't buddy. They are already on edge as is, I don't think they want a heart attack quite yet"] he said. The child pouted and crossed his arms over his chest.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "As for Dominick, I was just talking to Amon about that. I'm not sure. I mean keep an eye on them, they can't go anywhere, because the car isn't working right now. But if they try something, let me know?"] he asked. The red headed female nodded lightly. [#ff00ff "Of course, since Colton and I are a couple doors down. If something happens, you'll be the first to know. Colton let's go baby"] she said hold her hand out to the child. The child huffed and took the woman's hand. [b "I wanted to play with them"] he said with a small whine.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ff00ff "I know baby. Let Amon, and Maddox do what they need to do first, and hopefully soon, you'll have new playmates"] she said as the two walked off. Maddox sighed lightly as he looked back down at Amon. He didn't know what more to say. He knew that Dominick would want to talk to them both, and soon. Hopefully Sissy and Sierra, would be a perfect fit for Dominick's plan. That's if Dominick would ever tell either himself, or Amon what it was. He crossed his arms, as he leaned against the car, as Amon worked on it.]]

Kind of around, but not really

[font "Times New Roman" A twisted sense of relief washed over Sierra as they made it back to the room, the bags in her arms feeling unbearably heavy now that the adrenaline wore off. Her chest released the tight grip on her lungs it held, allowing her to breath with ease. What the fuck? Why was Sissy acting the way she did and why does she get such a bad vibe from those guys? The thoughts alone were making her mouth painfully dry. 

[#B266FF “They’d better hope that the car is done by the morning.”] She shook her head, raking both her hands through her hair and trying to center herself in the sea of negativity her brain had her in. She glanced up when Sissy headed for the bathroom before nodding to herself. 

[#B266FF “Ice, yeah I got it. I’ll knock on the door three times when I’m coming back. Keep the door locked otherwise.”] She picked up the room key off the nightstand, inspecting the rusted metal exterior for a moment before shoving it into her pocket. Heading out would give her a chance to survey their surroundings. They had neglected to do so while grabbing their bags. 

Sierra crouched, digging through one of her suitcases and pulling out a dark hoodie. She slid it on over her head and adjusted it the best she could to her frame before sighing and pulling the hood up to conceal her hair and face. Not very covert, but maybe she wouldn’t draw as much attention to herself. She gave one last look towards the bathroom door before exiting the room, her hands shoved in the hoodie pockets. 

She headed down the small pathway to the end of the makeshift hallway, glancing at the floodlights that have long gone unused. She swallowed back the fear that had formed a solid lump in her throat, stopping at the dented ice machine and inspecting it quietly. She wanted this little venture to end as quickly as possible. 

Amon looked to Maddox as he spoke, offering a soft laugh at his comment. [#FFB266 “Bitches always seem to lure you in, I thought.”] He brushed some hair from his face before looking at the car. [#FFB266 “This piece of junk has a lot more problems than a burnt engine.”] He fished his hand into the mass of metal, taking a moment before pulling out a small object. [#FFB266 “It’s missing a spark plug too.”] 

His eyes seemingly darkened at the mention of Dominick’s name. [#FFB266 “I’m not sure either of them could handle anything he wants to throw at them.”] He looked up upon hearing the child’s voice, smiling warmly. [#FFB266 “Hey Champ.”] 

Amon took a moment to wipe his hands off, dropping the spark plug into his tool box and nudging the box under the car with his foot. [#FFB266 “You sound so hopeful when you say that, ma’am.”] His thoughts drifted back to Sissy, and that look in her eyes. They were such a pretty color in the dim light, it was a shame there’d be fear in them soon enough. 

He looked back to the car and sighed. [#FFB266 “I’ll hold off on fixing this as long as I can. But if I feel like things are going south, I want them out of here.”] He muttered, almost to himself.]
StolenRelics-nowнere   29d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Sissy heard Sierra's words about keeping the door locked, and that she would knock three times when she came back. She didn't know if she would still be in the shower or not. That voice was really worrying her. Should she mention it to Sierra? Would the woman think she was insane? She didn't want to scare the woman anymore than she already was. There was so much running around in Sissy's mind, that she didn't know what to do about it. She chewed on the inside of her cheek, as she tilted her head back, and closed her eyes.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She felt like it was all her fault. If she had gotten a better car when she had the money, they wouldn't be in this seedy joint. It was all her fault. She should have gotten the car when she first laid eyes on it. Maybe then she wouldn't be feeling the way she was. She sighed as she found the shampoo and poured some into her hand. The hot water was warming her chilly skin, and she as slowly getting her thoughts together. She lathered her hair, and rinsed it out a moment later.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She finished her shower, and five minutes later she shut the water off, and climbed out. She grabbed one of the towels, and started to dry herself off. She wrapped it around her body, and then looked at herself in the somewhat steamy mirror. She looked pale, and her eyes looked too big for her face. [#DDB9B9 [i 'You are getting into your own head. Stop it']] she told herself. She looked away from herself, and grabbed her small bag and unzipped it. She pulled out the tooth brush, tooth paste, and her hair brush as well.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She took her time brushing her teeth, letting her mind wander back to what happened. Something strange happened the moment she laid eyes on Amon. She felt like she wanted to get to know him. She wanted him in a way she didn't think she would ever want anybody. Maybe it was because she hadn't gotten laid in ages, but whatever that feeling was, she hoped it would fade away. She couldn't be thinking that way, not right now. She had to focus on getting both her and Sierra out of here, and safely.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She finished brushing her teeth, then got dressed, and wrapped her hair into the towel. She unlocked the door and walked into the empty room. Sierra wasn't back yet. She wondered if she should go and find her. She shook her head lightly, as she moved over to the bed and sat down on the edge. She looked towards the T.V. that was there, and wondered if it worked. She needed some sort of noise. She searched for a remote and found it. She turned on the T.V. and was shocked that it worked. Sweet, some sort of distraction.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She moved up to the top of the bed, bent her knees, and started flipping  through the channels. Not really sure what she was in the mood for, but at least there was some sort of noise to help keep the silence at bay for the time being.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Maddox looked towards Amon and smirked lightly. [#b4c8ee "I mean they are, but I'm pretty sure she won't be able to resist the charm for much longer"] he said when the woman and her son were no longer in ear shot. He knew that Dominick was wanting both him and Amon to find a mate, and help build their coven even more. He just didn't know what would happen if they didn't. Would Sissy and Sierra be able to handle something like that? He looked towards Amon again as the male spoke about more issues with the car.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He raised a 'brow slightly and shrugged a bit. [#b4c8ee "I'm surprised the car didn't blow up. It seems like Sissy doesn't want anything bad to happen to the car. But do the best that you can Amon. You know damn well Dominick wants updates about all of this.. I don't want to harm the women, but if we don't find a mate soon, you and I will both have our heads on a silver platter, resting on our own blood"] he said with a small growl. He wasn't looking forward to that one at all.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "Do you think Sissy knows something's up? The way she seemed to pretty much melt the moment you two looked at each other.. I mean Sierra's going to be a challenge, but Sissy seems pretty easy to lure in"] he said lightly. He wasn't wanting to harm the women, but he hoped that maybe, just [i maybe] something will come out of this. It's been awhile since human's have been at the motel. He's glad it's pretty attractive ones too. He looked over his shoulder towards their room. Both women had their guards up, and that was a good thing.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Maybe things would finally look up. He knew that the boy wanted more playmates, and he couldn't blame him. He just wondered if all of this would be worth it in the end. Would he become soft for the humans and let them go? He didn't know what would happen with that. He blew out a breath and ran a hand through his hair. [#b4c8ee "I don't know about you, but I think you and I both need to hunt, and soon"] he muttered. There wasn't much to hunt near the motel but it would do.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "Did you want to go first, or should I?"] he asked. He didn't care who went first, but that ache for some flesh between his lips was starting to get to him. He wouldn't be able to hide that feeling for much longer. He needed a feed, and soon.]]

Kind of around, but not really

[font "Times New Roman" Sierra thumped her fist impatiently against the top of the ice machine, only to be met with hoarse rattling. Her eyes narrowed in annoyance as she tried again, only this time to be met by silence. She didn’t want to be stuck out in this hallway because the ice machine refused to work. Her tongue clicked against the roof of her mouth as she reached down to pick up the ice bucket. 

[#B266FF “Screw this.”] She mumbled, kicking her foot against the machine, only for it to roar to life and spit ice out all over the floor. Her head leaned back in frustration, words refusing to leave her lips. There was a child somewhere nearby and she was positive their mother wouldn’t want to hear the vocabulary she was about to unleash. Her palm pressed firmly against her forehead before she turned in defeat, about to head back to the room without ice. 

Maybe there was another machine on the other side of the building. It wouldn’t hurt to glance. Sierra gathered as much courage as she could, slipping her phone out of her pants pocket and flicking the flashlight on. She began walking, glancing over her shoulder every so often to ensure she was the only one out in the hallway. She hated the feeling of being watched, but that's all there was as room curtains seemingly swayed, wandering eyes peering from behind them.

[#FFB266 “You have as much charm as a rattlesnake, my friend.”] Amon cooed, almost mockingly, a smile plastered across his lips. [#FFB266 “The question is, are you truly ready to settle down like he wants?”] 

He let the car hood slam shut, taking a moment to inspect the rest of it. They were lucky it even made it this far. They weren’t so lucky in where they ended up. Maddox’s words stuck with him in an unnerving way. He was right, they were to find mates, expand the coven. That was the end goal anyways. He didn’t want to hurt them either, but it was them or him it felt like. 

His thoughts wandered back to Sissy’s features. Her doe-like eyes filled with anxiety formed a pit in his stomach. He looked up when a hunt was mentioned, his fangs almost aching in anticipation. 

[#FFB266 “The town isn’t far. We could make it there in about 10 minutes. Let me change into some clothes I can afford to rough up.”] He nodded his head, shoving his hands in his pockets rather casually. It had been some time since he last fed, so this wasn’t a bad idea.]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Sissy flipped through the channels one at a time, trying to find something to drown out the silence. She honestly didn't know how long Sierra had been gone. She wondered if she should go and find her. She sighed as she set the remote down, and changed into a pair of sweats, and a sweater. She then piled her wet hair onto a bun on top of her head. She made sure she had her room key in hand, before she slipped out of the room. She then tugged the door closed behind her, and locked it.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 When she turned around there was a little boy, and he looked up at her and smiled towards her. [b "Hello"] he said, the sound of his voice sending shivers down Sissy's spine. [#DDB9B9 "Hello little one. What are you doing up at this time of night?"] she asked lightly. Her heart was hammering inside of her chest, as she looked into his eyes. [b "No one sleeps at night here. Everyone's more active at night, than during the day"] he said, his voice sending cold shivers up and down her spine. Sissy nodded lightly, chewing her lip.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [b "Soon you'll be the same way, and I'll finally have other's to play with. I wish you weren't an adult though.. But I guess it's better than nothing"] the boy said looking Sissy up and down. What the fuck was wrong with this child? She shook her head lightly as she bent down, so she was more at his eye level. [#DDB9B9 "I'm sorry sweetheart, I'm not sure what you mean. But can I get you back to your mother?"] she asked softly. The boy took her hand, and a gasp escaped her lips at his touch.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ff00ff "Colton! There you are baby. What are you doing?"] came the sound of a woman's voice. Sissy hurried and stood, shoving her hands into her pockets. [#ff00ff "I'm sorry about my son. He's not used to having more adults than children around, I hope he didn't harm you"] she said, putting her hands on the child's shoulders. Sissy shook her head lightly. [#DDB9B9 "N-not at all. I was just asking if he wanted me to help find you"] she breathed out. [#ff00ff "Well I have him now, thank you"] the woman said with a small tilt of her head.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#ff00ff "Come one Colton, let's go back to the room"] she said clicking her tongue. [b "But momma, I wanted to play with her.."] he whined. [#ff00ff "Don't worry baby, you'll have all the time in the world, when the time comes"] she said as she hurried away with the child in tow. Sissy stood there, with her back to the door, and then she heard footsteps, and she snapped out of it. She spotted Sierra, and she hurried towards her, her hands still shoved into her the pocket of her sweat shirt.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DDB9B9 "Sierra, hurry with the damn ice.. I want to get back into the room and fast. I have something to tell you"] she said in a low tone of voice. She wasn't about to leave Sierra's side right now. Her heart was hammering inside of her chest, the words of the boy and his mother still ringing in her head. What the fuck was going on here?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Maddox shrugged lightly at Amon's question. Was he ready to settle down? That should have been an easy answer, but he paused for a moment before speaking. [#b4c8ee "I mean, it would be nice to get laid once in a while. Then waking up and finding a beautiful creature in my bed"] he said with a smirk. It would be nice, but was he fully ready for that? He knew Dominick was getting more and more annoyed that they hadn't found someone, but now though.. That might be a bit different. He might have found his mate after all.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "I'm just gonna go in what I'm wearing, it's not gonna be a long hunt. I just need something now, otherwise I'll end up losing my shit. I mean, I do still have that red head back in my room, I'm sure she's awake. But then again, I want something new"] he said, his mind wandering to Sierra. He wanted to know what the woman tasted like. The feel of her skin under his fingertips. A small smirk passed over his lips as he thought about it. Maybe he could charm her, and soon.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He sighed as he kicked the tool box closed, and kicked it under the car. He then turned his attention to Amon. [#b4c8ee "Hurry, I'll be at the truck waiting"] he said as he fished the keys out of his pocket, and made his way to his room. He might as well let the other woman go. He walked to his room, and opened the door. Sure enough the woman was awake. [b "Don't hurt me.."] she squeeked out. The male rolled his eyes lightly and stepped aside, giving her enough room to leave if she really wanted too.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#b4c8ee "I'm not going to hurt you. I'm letting you go. Now if you run into two other women, you better keep running. Don't stop and talk to them. If they try to stop you, don't say anything. Do you understand me?"] he asked. The woman nodded. [b "Yes sir. I won't say anything to them, I won't say anything to anyone."] she said as she hurried out of the room. Maddox smirked lightly, and knew she would keep her word. He had worked a little bit of his other charms on her in the first place.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He then shut the door and made his way to the truck. He slid in behind the wheel, started it up, and waited for Amon to finally arrive. He wanted to feed, and he needed it now. He wasn't about to wait another day for it either.]]

Kind of around, but not really

[font "Times New Roman" Sierra had found another ice machine, clutching the bucket tightly in her arms as it rumbled to life. Her lips pulled into a pout as she placed the bucket beneath the small opening, ice pouring into the bucket with a loud bang. This place was definitely giving her the creeps, goosebumps beginning to prickle on her skin. She was so engrossed on the clouded ice that filled the bucket, that she didn’t pick up on the footsteps behind her. 

When Sissy’s voice broke through the silence, Sierra yelped, her hands clamping over her own mouth quickly when she made the realization. Her head turned back to stare at her friend, her breathing seemingly quickened. 

[#B266FF “Are you trying to give me a heart attack?!”] She squeaked, her hand resting over her heart, which was practically skipping as it thundered in her chest. 

She sighed deeply, raking both her hands through her hair before grabbing the handle of the ice bucket and lifting it. [#B266FF “Let’s hurry back, this hallway is freaking me out.”] 


Amon’s room was tidy, and very minimalist, a few articles of furniture and decorations coating the clean beige walls. He hummed as he dug through his dresser for an older shirt covered in long obtained oil stains, pulling it over his head. He smiled to himself, the tips of his sharpened canines skating over the surface of his tongue.

He headed out to Maddox’s car, hopping into the passenger seat and stretching his arms above his head. [#FFB266 “Alright, let us go.”]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 When Sierra let out a yelp, Sissy shook her head lightly. [#DDB9B9 "Sorry, I thought you would have heard me coming up behind you"] she said with a small shrug of her shoulders. The run in with the mother and son was still rubbing her the wrong way. When Sierra grabbed the ice, the two were heading back to the room. Sissy fished the room key out of her pocket, and slid it into the door. She turned the knob and hurried into the room. She then slammed the door shut behind her, and slid a chair under the knob.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She made sure the curtain's were shut tight, before she turned to Sierra. [#DDB9B9 "We need to leave, and as soon as the car is done. I had a run in with a mother and son duo, and the words the little boy said.. It made my skin crawl like no other. I don't know what the fuck is wrong with this place, but there's something dangerous lurking in the shadows. If either one of us needs to leave the room, we go in a pair. No more leaving each other's sides"] she said softly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She wasn't one to get spooked so easily, but right now, her heart was thundering inside of her chest, and she was shaking a bit. She wrapped her arms around herself, as she moved over to the bed, and sat down. [#DDB9B9 "I don't know what to think of that little boy.. But something about the way he looked at me, the way it made me feel like he wanted to [i eat] me.."] she muttered. She didn't know if Sierra was really paying attention, but she didn't care. At least she wasn't keeping it bottled up.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Maddox looked up when Amon slid into the car with him, and he smirked lightly. [#b4c8ee "Couldn't find anything better?"] he asked with a smirk. He put the car in gear and headed away from the motel. He had spotted Sierra and Sissy escaping back to their room. What was it about those two women? Why were they the targets right now? What was so special about them? He knew sooner or later he would get the answers, but right now he needed to eat. He needed to get his strength back, because he felt really weak.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 About a half hour later, they were far enough away from the hotel, that he parked the car, shut it off and turned to the male beside him. [#b4c8ee "Meet up in an hour. That should be enough time to get a really good feed in"] he said as he shut the car off. He then slipped the keys into his pocket, climbed out, took a breath and headed into the forest that was surrounding them. He knew he would find what he wanted, and that's the best part of this night. At least for the most part.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The male ducked his head, and ran into the trees. The smell of the deer, beaver's, and whatever other animals hit his nose. Now he had to decide on what would cure his hunger for the time being.]]
