Mistress of Castle Unholy pt 2

Betrayal was once not as common in the world, but in this world of darkness its is every where. Especially when dealing with creatures, such as vampires; betrayal is almost second nature.

Edwards and Peanut draw closer to the Ivory, Zero, Nightmare and an unconscious Brandis. Inch by inch every gaze into the others eyes waiting to see who makes the first move.

Ana Mortis: Hmm... a little entertainment now...

Growing calm and easy.

Zero: I have a better idea..

Zero then reaches into his boot and pulls out a thermal detonator.

Zero: How about every one stays cool and I will to...

Peanut: What is that?!

Nightmare looks at the detonator with severe nervousness and whispers.

Nightmare: Are you crazy?

Zero: Yea I'm crazy, pretty fucked up in the head right about now!! How about a truce?! You all let us go and we all don't die right here and now?!

Peanut and Edwards look at Mortis who then puts down her chalice and looks daringly at Zero.

Ana Mortis: You wouldn't...

Arming the device to blow once released from his hand.

Zero: One step... I drop this and we all go boom... try me bitch...

There is a small silence.

Mortis: You...for a human you have some huge ones... a mouthy little prick...but great spunk... unfortunately I do need you...

Nightmare: For what?

Mortis then begins to walk back to her desk away from the others.

Mortis: A slight misfortune over came the house band this evening...

Zero still holding the detonator ready to drop it.

Zero: So what... what does that have to do with us?

Mortis: Its simple really....

Ivory continues to talk to Zero and Nightmare as she did Brandis- Telepathically.

Ivory: She wants us to play in there place...

Nightmare and Zero looks at Ivory briefly.

Nightmare: You want us to play in there place?

Mortis: You catch on quick for a human...

Zero still holding the bomb.

Zero: But we can't play ...anything...

Mortis: Well you better find a way to learn... because that’s the deal... if you don't play... does not matter what you pull out your boot... it won't save you from what I will do...

Nightmare, Zero, and Ivory look at each other curiously and give a simple nod as Zero turns off the detonator and places it in his boot.

One hour passes. Zero, Ivory, Nightmare and an unconscious Brandis stand behind a large velvet red curtain on a large stage. above them are various lights. Around them are several different kinds of instruments, amps, chords, acoustic and electrical based. A large banner with glowing eyes covers the rear wall. Commotion of the audience and music continues on the opposite side of the curtain. And the 3 have no idea what to do.

Nightmare: How are we going to get out of this? I don't know how to play an instrument... have just done small old simulations of VD's from the early 21st centaury.

Zero: VD's?

Looks around nervous like and whispers.

Nightmare: Video disc...

Ivory: Don't worry...

Zero: Excuse me...? don't worry?

Zero then turns to Ivory in discomfort.

Zero: Unless you have a serious plan or something I say we do worry... we're in a nest of evil and no way out.

Ivory: Trust me... just pick something and I will take care of the rest...

As she continues to talk Brandis slowly gains conscious. Grunting.

Brandis: What happen?

Zero: We will explain later... just pick an instrument...

Ivory: It's good to see you're ok...

Brandis: Yea... remind me when I take a blade to my skin again to not...

Brandis, Ivory, Zero and Nightmare listen to the commotion behind the curtain die down as an announcer steps behind a microphone. He is a short Goblin, about 3 feet tall, wearing a tuxedo. He carries a martini in his hand and a cigarette in the other. His nails are short and painted, and head is bald. He had long pointed ears with a few piercings in each, and a long pointed nose with, with a septum piercing in it. His skin is flesh tone, and his eyes squinted and beady with a hint of green. (Think the goblins from Harry potter in the Sorcerer's stone).

Announcer: Good evening Maggots!!! Welcome to Castle Unholy. I'm sure most of you are eager to see what kind of "ENTERTAINMENT" we have for you courtesy of our Lovely Mistress. (he says as he points to Mortis sitting in a chair in a small balcony with Edwards and Peanut next to her- and a spot light hits her for a second- she waves friendly and the audience cheers and whistles) Well, due to "unfortunate" circumstances (he says while laughing) things have been changed a little to suit the pleasure for your sight and ears tonight. And on a small note of our mistress do not try to eat them, kill them, or gorge your self in anyway... least 'til the mistress says so (the audience laughs and cheers again). Well with out further adieu I give you... um (he stutters for a second- looks at Mortis who just raises an eye brow back at him--- he then nervously says) SETONAS!!!

The Announcer shuffles off the stage and the curtain opens. Ivory stands behind a keyboard, Brandis is behind a set of drums, and Nightmare and Zero are on Guitars. All look nervously at the crowd and the audience looks at them puzzled, curious, and also devious.

Ivory: Just relax... and follow me.

Ivory then begins to play a soft melody alone. Not knowing anything about the drums Brandis feels a strong since of influence come over him and begins to shimmer and tap the cymbals. (If you know The Band Setonas, music they are playing the intro to Unholy) Zero then get an idea.

Zero: Everyone welcome!! Your Mistress Ana Mortis!!

A spot light hits her, and she looks almost surprised, but elegantly gets out of her chair and begins singing when Nightmare and Zero begin to play. Right before the chorus she Vamp speeds to the stage (moving faster than a blink of an eye) in front of the only standing microphone on stage and continues to sing. Nightmare, Ivory, Brandis, and Zero begin jamming out and moving around on stage freely allowing the music to influence them although they had never played.

The audience is moved by the music, the melody and harmony from sound and Mortis' voice begins to make every creature in the room dance in there own way, some even gorge themselves in blood. It is as if the music was putting everyone in a mystical trance. Soon the song ends and the audience give a huge cheer to the group on stage. The bow as the curtain closes, but shortly before the curtain closes Mortis was gone.

Nightmare: Whoa, they freaking loved us!

Zero: That doesn't matter...

Nightmare: Yes it does, we did awesome.. I mean... I was playing!! It was actually me.

Zero: I know what you mean, not sure how the hell that happened at all...

Brandis: It was her...

Nightmare: What?

Zero, Nightmare, and Brandis look at Ivory.

Brandis: It was her... wasn't it? She did it... you see guys... there are different kind of mermaids in the world, but the most common conception is... they can influence the minds of creatures as well as man... correct?

Ivory: You certainly do know your creatures...

Interrupting and entering with Peanut and Edwards behind her.

Mortis: Knowing them or not... it helped... you all did... very well... Was very much impressed.. so on that know... you are all free... Edwards will escort you pass the entrance.

Stepping in before she can turn around and walk away.

Brandis: Um.. one fav...

Mortis: I have already helped you enough... we are even right now...

Brandis: Well let me allow to talk to you privately.

The two walk off to the back of the stage away from the others and begin to chat.

Zero: What the hell is he doing... we were almost out of here...

Nightmare: I'm sure there is a logical explanation... I mean...

Zero: Yea the logical explanation that lies within my boot with a timer on it...

Nightmare looks at Zero with caution.

Nightmare: Well I don't think...

Brandis and Mortis come back to the group interrupting.

Mortis: Its settled. Follow Peanut to where you need to go and all will be taken care of.

Nightmare: Exactly where is that.

Zero: I thought we were following Edwards?

Brandis: Don't worry...

Zero: Don't worry?!

Brandis: Trust me... we are safe... just have to follow him to a dock...

Nightmare: Dock? Wait... you got us a ship?

Zero: At what cost?

Brandis says nothing. Peanut then Escorts Brandis, Ivory, Nightmare, and Zero Through a stone cement corridor down stairs in from the stage underneath the castle. The corridor is round and like a long hall way and at the end lies a stone wall that is appears to be a dead end.

Zero: The fuck is this?

Peanut: Just follow me...

She then walks through the wall and it ripples like waves in a pond.

The others look shock. and Nightmare put his hand up to it in curiosity.

Nightmare: Amazing! It's a mystical gate way...

Zero: A what?

Nightmare: A Mystic gateway its like a door between worlds... only where does this one go?

Ivory: Can only see for ourselves...

Ivory then walks through no problem. Followed by Brandis, then Nightmare and Zero. When they come through there is another long corridor resembling the other but shorter. Instead at the end lies a what looks like the Black Sea. When they get to the end it is the sea, but just like Mortis' Castle, a long bridge laid just outside the tunnel and at the center of it cloaked in stealth was a large Mansion.

It resembles Mortis' castle but instead of tall like it, it is wider taking up a over 40 acres of space. Around lies various statues that resemble people in various poses. It is very dark, and resembles a small city from a distance. It also has various vehicles from trains, to ships, boats crafts, to cars, to bikes located to the far right side.

Brandis: Where are we?

Nightmare: Not sure... but if I could guess... I say we are in a plane within a plane... my MDM shows we have not left the island.. but just on another part...

Just as they walked up to the door it opens. The mansion is empty.

Peanut: Good luck...

The door then slams in front of Peanut, with the others on the other side, inside the mansion. The inside is large and round. A set of stairs bridges along the wall and down both sides. The walls are illuminated but the same lanterns like in Mortis' castle. A door lies at the top in the middle of the stairs, creating a balcony. And another door lies below that on the ground floor. Both are large and metal like.

Zero: I have a serious bad feeling about this...

Distance voice: Welcome!!

A beautiful woman then appears. And she resembles Ana Mortis with slight differences. Her hair is styled differently-- its longer than Mortis.

Beautiful Woman: I say... I rather enjoyed your performance with my sister...

Zero: Great... out of one vampires hands and into another...

Nightmare: Who are you?

Responding with a smile from a top of the stairs of a huge balcony.

Beautiful Woman: Oh... I'm sorry... I'm Ana Mortis older sister... But please.. call me Sadie Sixx...
