|Hellsing: Oblivion - Chapter 9
||[Jan. 22nd, 2007|02:40 pm]
Wow. It's been a while since I last updated this. I got a couple of reviews since then, which I appreciated a lot, and I finally feel motivated enough to continue . Sorry for the long wait. I've had writers block with this fic and school has been taking up all my time on top of it. Even now, I have no idea where I'm going with this but as always, things just sort of come to me as I write. Sorry if a lot of the information presented in this is a repeat from another chapter. I couldn't remember how much I had given away before, and I was too lazy to go back and look. xD|
Also, can I ask a quick favor to my readers? I think I've asked something like this before, but, if my OC's (especially Megami) seem at all Mary-sue-ish, please let me know, and give me ideas on how to change that. ^^
Thank you to everyone that has kept reading this fic. This chapter will be a bit longer to make up for the lack of updating.
Hellsing does not belong to me. Only Megami, Loki, Daetrex, and their world belong to me.
In a flash of light the eleven people that had been at the conference in the palace appeared in the entrance hall of the Hellsing manor. They were all dazed from the teleportation spell, except the vampires and Megami. Integral was first to come out of it, her head slowly stopped spinning and she eyed Megami as the girl came into focus again. The others soon were able to see clearly and all eyes were on Megami and Loki. The unspoken question was mutual for everyone. What just happened and how did it happen?
Megami sighed and stole a quick glance at Loki before turning her eyes back to look at the queen, two guards, Integral, Seras, Alucard, Walter, Islands, and Walsh respectively. Before she could speak however, the queen, somehow predicting that Megami was going to tell them important information, turned to her two guards and Islands and Walsh and spoke.
“Go home.” she said to them, “I will be fine with Sir Hellsing, but she can't protect all of us. You'll be safe in your homes. Whoever that man was at my palace was not after you.”
The four men were about to argue, but the queen gave them a look and they simply nodded, and left begrudgingly.
Megami was somewhat relieved that the civilians left. They most likely would not believe her and try to argue. She didn't like Islands and Walsh very much, and she had only just met them ten minutes ago.
With the four men gone, everyone looked to Megami and Loki once more. Loki had been quiet the majority of the time he was here, and he remained so now. He would let Megami handle this. She was better suited to explaining things about their world.
“We should probably sit down.” Megami said, glancing at the foyer to her left.
Everyone migrated to the foyer and sat in the plush chairs and turned their attention to Megami once more.
“Where should I begin?” Megami started, phrasing the question as more of a statement. “There is so much to tell and so little time.”
She paused again, not quite sure how to put things to make the blow less harsh. She decided to just out and say everything and hope they didn't take it the wrong way.
“Well, first off, Loki is a vampire, no need for explanation there. You already knew that. Daetrex, the man that attacked us and has been attacking us, is a Chaos Demon. He is Lord Chiron's right hand man. Lord Chiron is the King of the Chaos Demons.”
Judging by the looks on everyone's faces she decided to go into a lot more detail.
“Chaos Demons are demons, of course, but they are the most powerful of all the demon races, after the Silence Demons. And, as I told you at the palace, I am part of the Silence Demon clan.”
She paused and let the information sink in.
“So, you're one of the most powerful demons then.” Seras said.
Megami nodded, Alucard smirked, Seras's eyes widened, Walter stared, Integral glared and the queen waved her hand in the air indicating for no one to say a word and allow Megami to continue. Words were swallowed and they let Megami continue despite all the commotion they wanted to cause. Before she went on though, Megami broke off onto a different subject.
“Anyway, I am the last of my race. Eighteen years ago humans attacked my clan while they slept. They burned our homes and brutally slaughtered everyone, including my twin brother. The only reason I survived was because I had woken up early that morning and was out fishing at a nearby lake. At the time, I thought the attack was because the humans feared our power and thought we would attack them someday. But, I later discovered it was all an elaborate plan set up by the Chaos Demons. They wanted to get rid of the Silence Demons because my clan was more powerful than them. With my race gone they would have an easier time wining the war. As you already know, the Chaos Demons lost that war three years ago and want to start another by using your world as their base of operations. By taking control of the vampires in this world, and turning them into true Nosferatu their army would be larger and would be able to last longer than it did in the last war.”
Megami took a deep breath and looked at everyone in the room. The queen wasn't sure if she should believe most of that or not. Seras had apparently believed all of it and had a look of sadness for Megami on her face. Walter said nothing and even Alucard was unsure of things. Megami was about to go on, but Loki spoke first.
“She speaks the truth. I'm sure you probably don't believe it, but it's true I assure you. Besides, you have no choice but to believe us. Your world will be taken over by demons and the Nosferatu controlled by them unless you work with us. Megami is no more evil than Alucard or me. We're trying to save you and protect our own world in the process.”
“She's a demon.” Integral cut in, “And she lied to us by not telling us this sooner. I simply can't trust her right away.”
“Then your world is doomed.” Megami replied, “Though I'm still young by my race's standards, I'm the only one that may possibly be able to match Lord Chiron in power. But I can't do it alone and even with Loki's help it wouldn't be enough to defeat Chiron's armies.”
The room grew quiet again until the queen spoke up.
“We will help you all we can,”
Integral was about to object, but the queen hurriedly continued.
“But know that we will never fully trust you until it's proven that we still can.”
The queen stood.
“Now then, about that demon in my palace. I don't think I can go back there and be safe...”
“You are more than welcome here your Majesty.”
Integra turned to Walter and Seras.
“Walter, Seras, please escort the queen to a room where she can stay.”
“Yessir!” Seras said.
Walter nodded and they escorted the queen from the room and up the stairs.
Integra then turned to Megami and Loki.
“You two may remain staying here, but only because if this Daetrex and Chiron are as powerful as you say, we will need your protection. But we'll be keeping an eye on you.”
Megami and Loki nodded and left the foyer, leaving only Integra and Alucard in the room.
Integral flopped back in a seat wishing she kept a box of cigars in this room.
“I don't know what to make of that.” she muttered.
“I don't think she's lying to us Master. I mean, it wouldn't make sense for her to make all that up and try to get us to help her if she was on the enemy's side.”
Integra thought for a moment.
“True, but she's a demon. She could turn on us at any time.”
“So could I.”
Integral glanced at Alucard, suddenly a bit wary, though she didn't show it.
“I know that. It's just...I suppose for me, vampires are not so much a threat anymore. I'm so used to fighting them, they've become more of a nuisance. But demons. I've never faced them before. I had no idea they existed. I had no idea there were other worlds, other dimensions, out there. It's foreign to me so it scares me a bit. I'm only human.”
“Yes, but as Megami stated earlier, humans rule this world.”
Alucard sat next to Integra and crossed his feet at the ankles.
The two sat in silence for a few moments. Integra's mind had drifted from demons to the fact that Alucard said he could turn on her at any time. What did he mean by that?
“I meant just that. If I wanted to, I could kill you and take over your precious country.”
Integra stiffened, looked at him quickly and glared. Alucard smirked and chuckled.
“But I won't.”
Integra relaxed a bit with a questioning look on her face.
“Don't you want your freedom? Why would you not kill me?”
She didn't get a reply. Instead, his lips covered hers and she relaxed into his arms.
'Do you really need to ask?'
A man with long thick deep red hair that looked like fire sat on a large throne made of bones. His eyes flared a deep crimson, and his hands bore long claws like a bear. Above his pointed ears were large black ram horns and his eyes were slit like a snake's. He wore long black robes with red runes on the seams, that covered his body from his neck to his ankles and his feet were covered in black leather boots. Kneeling in front of him was a man with an arm that was currently reforming itself, shoulder length spiky purple hair, orange eyes, and a black cloak with the same runes on it that the man in the throne had.
“You failed Daetrex.” the man in the throne said, his voice booming so loud that one might think it would shake the stone walls surrounding them.
“Forgive me Lord Chiron. I was careless. I wasn't aware that man used a weapon like that.”
“Don't let it happen again. I want those people and that Silence Demon dead.”
Daetrex was about to get up to leave, but Chiron stopped him.
“Wait.” his voice boomed. “Maybe we can use the little demon.”
Daetrex raised his eyebrows.
“Perhaps we can convince her to turn to our side.”
“How would we do that my Lord?”
Chiron smiled cruelly revealing a mouthful of razor sharp teeth.
“I know exactly how.”
