Their Fathers' FootstepsPrologue
Two girls with dark curly hair occupied the garage slash makeshift music room. Whilst the shorter of the two sat cross legged on a nearby workbench, the taller one played a lilting melody on her hot pink electric guitar.
"You are everything to me
The very thing I want to be
You keep me flying so high
The love I take I give back to you
A love so tender and oh so true
That keeps me flying so hi... damn it!"
"Now young lady, is that any way to talk to a Fender?"
"Sorry, broke my nail and one of the strings at the same time Da.." Amy Lee stopped short and noticed that instead of her dad her dad's best friend was standing at the garage doorway, "Oh it's just you Uncle Dougie."
"Awww, you're not happy to see me?" Dougie asked, pretending to pout, "And I thought you loved to see me."
"I always love to see you Uncle Dougie" Amy Lee answered him with a laugh as she put down her guitar and went over to give Dougie a hug, "How's Aunty Charlie?"
"She's great" said Dougie

"Can anyone figure out how we're going to get out of here?"
Pandie looked at Arizan and shrugged her shoulders. "I've never been in this part of the grave yard, sorry." she sighed as she looked around her, "If I did, we wouldn't be walking around in circles like a bunch of lost tourists."
"Don't worry about it, Pandz" Arizan said, as she spotted a direction they hadn't taken, "Hey, how about that way? I don't think we've taken that..." Before she could finish what she was saying, a great big bulky bear shifter jumped right in front of the three girls and Casey who was still in her dog form.
"Sorry to break up the little getaway," he snarled as his big muscles began to bunch up, "but you ladies aren't going anywhere."
"Oh look," Arizan muttered sarcastically to the others, in a sing song voice, "it's Dorkules! Strongest jerk alive!"
Smiling nastily at Arizan, the bear shifter walked up to her and be

Blain Moreno smiled evilly to himself. Those stupid Daybreakers didn't suspect a thing. He shook the image in his hands a bit to make sure the link was still there. The image wavered a bit and settled down once more. Little did those Circle Daybreak fools realize he had seen them in that cafe. He didn't have to be there, in person, he just used some human fool as his eyes.
So, they were going to look for the grave of Jasper Katteken aka The Black Catkin, the infamous secret agent who chose to help Daybreak, but never joined them. He had decided this would bring him one step closer to unlocking the ultimate power of The Six. All he needed was for his cronies to bring back the black witch cat charm and ring that where in the possession of Katteken's foolish half-breed daughters, and he would be able to locate the next part of the prophecy.

"Dri! Slow down man! It's probably not as bad as you think!"
Ash knew his friend rarely overreacted, but this time he was sure this was one of those rare moments. As soon as he finally caught up with Hadrian and joined the big crowd at the gates of the cemetery, he knew he was wrong.
For a small town their cemetery was enormous and right now most of it was a blazing inferno. OK, I was wrong, Ash thought to himself, It's not as bad as that. It's worse
"Ash!!! Quit staring, will you, and give me a boost up?!"
Ash looked over to the wall to the left near the cemetery gates and saw Hadrian scrambling to get over to the other side. "Uh, are you mad?!" he said, walking over to Hadrian and clasping his hands out low in front of him to make a makeshift step, "Y'know how Thierry feels about us going into this kind of situation without going to the people dealing with it first!!"

Hadrian looked at his watch for what seemed like the hundredth time. "They've been in that place too long." he muttered, looking out the car window, "Maybe we should go in?" Ash looked from the hand held video game he was playing. Both his feet where rested on the dash board and his seat was pushed far back to give him more room. He looked every bit the big blonde cat. "Chill out, Dri-man" he said casually, his now moss green eyes looking calm, "Rashel and Quinn know what they're doing."
Suddenly several cars roared past them and a few men came running along the path beside them. Taking charge, Ash rolled down the window and stuck his head out. "Hey man!" he shouted to a guy with spiky blood red hair and brown eyes running past the car, "What's the rush?"
"There's a fire down at the cemetery" the guy said, gasping from all running he'd been doing, "The whole place a

Meanwhile two figures crept through the forest outside the cemetery, away from the fire. One was that of a young man with creamy blonde hair and huge piercing light blue eyes. And the other was that of a young dog: a German Shepherd to be precise.
Suddenly the young man turned to face the German Shepherd. "Give it up, Princess" he said calmly, "Whatever it is you want from me, you're not going to get it without a fight." At his very words, the German Shepherd changed back into the form of a tall beautiful girl with long rusty brown hair and warm coffee coloured eyes.
"Give me the ring," Murphy said, staring him straight in the eyes, "or you'll regret it."
"I'll regret it?" he laughed, "What makes you think you can make me give you anything, Princess?"
Even though she was a Drache, part of The First House, making her royalty in the Night World especially amongst the shifters, Mu

The battle was moving thick and fast with casualties on both sides when an enormous thundering roar split the air and stopped everyone in their tracks. Lady Emma tore her gaze from the dark fey she was dealing with, delivering a deathly strike to his mid-section, and looked up. The wings of the huge dragon blocked out the sky above them and threw back it's head as if preparing itself to belch miles of flame over the people fighting below. The royal bodyguard desperately searched for signs of the princess, preparing herself for any possible danger forthcoming. The dragon made a rasping sound and...
Heat surged around her, but strangely Emma felt no pain. No searing agony: nothing. How could this be so? Sure the dragon should've finished them all by now. Emma, got any idea about this? Lady Emma gave no signs of moving away as her twin br
