Musically Inspired 3: Another Way to Die by Disturbed
Well partially... Tis a prequel to a book im hoping to write. This one is called: The End. A Valdimir Strange Novel. hahahaha whenever that happens *snicker*
This would be considers a rough draft at best... I'll go over it later and maybe place it in a different topic but right now this will do fine))
I'll tell you what: Things were not pretty when the food sources began to die off. Me, being what i am, i could only watch in horror as people began to fight against one another. An observer to how all the sh** that hit the fan. You want to hear what happened in better detail don't you..... Sigh. Fine.
It was gradual. Something that people knew ahead of time that it was going to happen, but did nothing about it. They thought they had at least a few hundred years or more before they really had to worry. Truthfully it was much much less than that.
The supernatural creatures like myself and the rest, all felt it coming. The world retaliating. The world trying to purge but it was struggling underneath the torture. In its last ditch effort it sent out ... Soldiers if you will. Soldiers whom were extremely rare. Maybe one or two of them over a few decades or more. In total there was at least 20 of them out there trying to reduce the human populations by feeding off of them. How? They would actually suck the very life essence out of them and leave nothing but a corpse. They tried to repair the damage, that was their purpose; However, they were only so few, and to have so many at a given time, some of them went a little crazy.
They ended up finding each other and pretty much wiping themselves out. Why? They were with Humanity too long. Like domestic animals that don't know any better, watching humans and how they behave, each ended up with their own ideals and could not be swayed from them. Naturally no one in the human race knew about this. If they had they might of figured out from that alone that we were on the road to disaster.
Oh sorry i keep changing my pronouns. From them to us sort of thing... I am half vampire so i share an affinity with both humans and the supernatural since I am of both. Anyway.
This is how it happened:
"Scientists are now saying that they have made a mistake in calculating just how much food there is for everyone." The News lady announced," I have with me Dr. Manchester who is the lead scientist on the Ecology of the world. Tell me Doctor, just how much time do we have?"
I paused what i was doing for a moment to look out into the living room. This is one of the things i have to have on while doing anything really. Its my background noise and you never know when something important shows up.
" Well Betty, to say the least we have 10 years before things start becoming less and less. With all the clear cutting and the amount of pollution that is taking over our planet its too much for the remainder trees to handle. They are, in a sense gorging to the point where they are dieing. Vegetation, such as our tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables, are also taking a good brunt of this. We have just started to discovered certain foods being tainted with the atmospheric chemicals that our in our air. With that said, we will see more and more of these cropping up and dieing within the next 10 years." The doctor explained. I could tell just from looking at him on the screen that the numbers were much more drastic than a mere 10 years. With that thought in my head i could only shake it in dismay. " Even with 10 years doc, you're looking at a wide mass hysteria," With that said i moved from the living room to the dinning room and had a look at the night time city. I could tell some people already heard the news as they began panicking and started rushing towards the grocery store. These were the poor ones, i knew that much. Everyone else didn't seem to mind because they knew that if need be they would be able to deal with it when the time comes. They had the money and the means to.
"Prime targets," I smirked shaking my head again as i lit my cigarette. We all have vices, even vampires.
If that wasn't bad enough, i could feel the shifting and the pawing of supernatural powers at war in a dimension i wasn't even certain existed. Every so often i would get the splitting headache like i had just fallen from a 4 story building and landed face first. I can't tell you what happened, because I don't have any contacts or links in that dimension; However, that's a story left for someone else to tell, not me.
Sighing i sat down in the chair after having grabbed a cold beer and a packet of blood from the fridge. I opened the packet and beer and poured them both carefully into a glass. Nothing like blood beer to wake a Half Blood, like myself, up.
This was before my sleuthing days, so i didn't much care what happened out there. I lived alone, that was how i liked it. No one to bother me, not even those damned full bloods. I was completely off of the grid.
Though someone still managed to find me.
A knock came from the door, making me jump. Nothing makes me jump, okay? Nothing catches me off guard. No one could find my place for the talismans i had placed all over it. Even in the registry of the apartment building, there was a missing number. If anyone walked down the hall they wouldn't see my apartment number, it would go to the number after mine. So you can see why it made me jump.
After i had finished pouring my tall cold one, i casually walked over to the door. All the while i tried to sense who or what it was that had broke through my barrier, but i could sense nothing. This scared the crap out of me and when i opened the door i came face to face with a demon.
" You Valdimir Strange?" The guy asked. He seemed like a short scrawny kid. Light brown hair, dark eyes. For some very odd reason i was reminded of a small song bird. Reading my thoughts he smiled but said nothing.
"Well, this ain't the home of Craig, the bastard who cheated on his girlfriend a few days back, is it? And I'm sure as hell, he ain't gay." I remarked bluntly watching this kid carefully.
"Of course not. May i come in?" he answered back not even batting an eye. I stood there hesitantly, for there was something about this kid that gave me the creeps, but eventually i let him in.
"Forgive me if i don't offer you a seat, or to look more presentable for you lad. It's just that i don't know who the F*** you are. " I remarked as i watched him almost glide in. The power in this light brown haired kid was astounding. I have never felt the presence of a demon before. Also i wore a wife beaters tank top and just a pair of tattered jeans. If i knew someone was coming i would've dressed a little bit more nicely.
"Half demon." He corrected my thoughts," My name is Tori and I am the lord of the underworld's messenger. I am also in charge of his domestic disputes and various other charges which His Lordship is unable to deal with himself as he has other pressing matters to attend to."
I raised an eyebrow at this. "What the hell does that have to do with me? What do you want?" I pressed getting more than a little agitated.
He raised a hand up to signal for me to calm down and explained. " His Lordship, is currently in.... Distress. He has left me in charge of finding whomever i can to help in an up coming war. It won't happen just yet, but with the Surface here on the brink of destruction, i figured i would recruit as many people while i can, for we are all running out of time.... Why you? You have a rare blood type that hasn't been seen before. The fact that you come from a different blood line of vampires outside of the ones we have already encountered, is quite fascinating and-"
" Whoa whoa whoa....." I interrupted feeling only slightly overwhelmed by this. Just slightly." Run that by me again.... I'm a rare blood type? ME? ... look if you don't start making more sense than this i will kick you out of here permanently. I don't know how you got in here boy, but i am not following someone i wasn't even sure existed until a short minute ago..."
"Let us sit down and i shall explain things in detail." he offered politely. which was one thing that ticked me off about him. I'm sure that no matter how much i swore at him, he would just smile pleasantly, silently knowing that he could flatten me in one move, and i wouldn't have a chance.
(i'm gunna leave that there for now 'cause there's still a few things i have to run over in my head. )
