“What is thy bidding Lord Ramos?” asked Veedor bowing cautiously
“Veedor, you are to take two of your most trusted dark warriors to find me a virgin mistress” Said Lord Ramos pointing two fingers at him.
“Yes my lord”
“Two years have passed now and still I have not bred any sons from that winch of a Princess who now disgust me. You are to leave tonight when the moon is full. Am I making myself clear?”
“Yes my lord”
“And Veedor” Lord Ramos paused turning back around… “Remember, a virgin. I will not settle for anything else and do not fail me or you know what will happen to you don’t you?”
“Yes my lord”
“Good, now step away from me.” Lord Ramos scowled turning his back to Veedor.
Veedor backed away from Lord Ramos bowing and watching him as he returned to his throne waving his hand behind him. Standing on the edge of a perch Veedor stretched out his large black wings then leaped and glided down towards the lower level of the lair. After retracting his wing he went inside of The Gathering place. The Gathering place is where most of the other dark warriors hang out eating, drinking and mingle. He saw Kara and Torak huddled at a table in one of the far corners.
“Good, you both are here together” said Veedor pulling up a chair.
“What? You look like you have seen death.” Said Kara
“It’s much worse, I was summoned by Lord Ramos and he has tasked me with a great demand.”
“Shit, Lord Ramos” said Torak quickly putting down his stein wiping the corner of his mouth.
“Yes, Lord Ramos. He wants us to find and return with a new mistress.”
“Well hell that’s nothing.” Smarted off Torak
“Okay, then try this one on, he wants a virgin.” Said Veedor raising an eyebrow. Torak froze.
The look on his face was like stone as he starred at Kara.
“A virgin, are you freakin’ kidding me? Why doesn’t he just ask us to bring him every sack of walking meat on earth while we’re at it?” Kara said rolling her eyes up then locking on Veedor.
“Yeah, a freaking virgin, and we three are the chosen ones for the job.” Veedor said taking a drink from Torak’s stein.
“O’, well thank you for dragging us into this.” Mused Torak.
Veedor turned around and walked away, no longer in the mood for food or drink. The thought of finding an innocent virgin was weighing heavily on his mind. Lord Ramos was well known for his violent temper when he was displeased. Veedor did not wish to be on the receiving end of that wrath. He wasn’t sure how much he could count on Torak and Kara. They much preferred feeding and screwing their way through as many humans as possible over doing Lord Ramos bidding.
Veedor’s mind was working furiously trying to decide which part of the human world held the most promise. A virgin…damn this was a new one. What did Ramos want him to do, raid a convent? As veedor was leaving the Gathering place, he met his best friend Sanon on his way in. The timing could not have been better.
“Sanon, what are you up to my old friend?”
“Not much Veedor, just need a little nourishment before tonight’s prowling begins. You don’t look so well. What’s going on?”
Veedor tells him of the Lord’s directive. As Sanon hears his friend’s story his expression changes from one of “you gotta be shitting me”, to a look of pure wariness. He knew what was coming next.
“Sanon, I need your help. You are much more grounded than Torak and Kara and I need a vampire who can be counted on to be by my side in this quest.”
“Veedor, I don’t know what I can do to help. My head will be on the chopping block right along with you if we fail. But, you are my friend so if Lord Rhamous want’s a virgin, we’ll find him one”.
“Thank you Sanon…I am in your debt.”
Chapter 2 - We’ve found the perfect one!
Now that Veedor had Sanon’s help they put their heads together as to where to obtain Ramos’ virgin. If they did not ensure her virginity there would be hell to pay for both. They also knew that the virgin had to be at least 18 years old. Vampires were not allowed to mate with a female who had not reached full maturity. Veedor looks over at Sanon as they lounge over a pint of fresh blood.
“Sanon, other than a convent I can’t imagine where we’ll find a virgin. Women don’t save themselves for marriage as they did in our youth 200 years ago.
“No they don’t my friend, but I have an idea.” There’s an orphanage in Velenzi where all of the wards are kept inside the grounds until their 18th birthday. The male and female humans are not allowed to visit among themselves unless they are chaperoned. Perhaps that would be our best chance of finding a virgin. We can dematerialized over to the orphanage tonight and snoop around.”
“Sanon, I knew there was a reason I asked for you help with this quest. You have a very quick mind.”
With that, the two of them dematerialized and reappeared inside the female quarters at the Velenzi orphanage. Of course, vampires cannot be seen unless they wish to. This gave them the best opportunity to observe the human females at their leisure and learn what they needed to know.
It did not take them long to hone in on a conversation between three females. Virginia, Sylvia and Rachel were talking amongst themselves. Since they were all about to become of age and leave the home, they were discussing what would become of them.
“Sylvia” said Virginia …”what are your plans”? Will you go to school or get a job or maybe just try to find a husband.
“ Virginia , the first thing I want to do is find a place to live. Then I’d like to find a nice, intelligent, sweet man who might like to have a quiet, loving wife.”
Rachel chimed in…”Yeah Sylvia…I’d like that too, except he has to have a good job and be able to take care of me properly.”
“You’ve got a point there Rachel”, responded Sylvia.
“Ok come on girls, what is your problem? All of that sounds nice, but frankly I just want to get laid!” I’m tired of being a virgin. I want to know what it’s like to have hot sex and be ravished. Don’t get me wrong, I’d like to get married too, but I want to find a hot lover and enjoy myself.”
The girls continued their conversation, but Sanon and Veeda looked at each other and bared their fangs. They made their virgin selection and figured out that this would be easier than they had anticipated.
“Sanon, that’s the one we need.” Said Veedor pointing at Virginia . “Ramos would not be happy with a wimpy little woman and this one’s got some fire in her. She’ll screw the hell out of him on their first night together for sure. Plus she’s a virgin.”
“You’re right Veedor, we’ll wait for them to fall asleep and take her with us when we go. The others will never hear us leave.”
Night came and the moon was full. The sky was streaked with plenty of cloud cover. Veedor and Sanon looked at each and began scaling the wall to her bedroom window.
“What luck.” signaled Veedor approaching her window. “It’s open, pass me the sleeping potion.” He whispered to Sanon. Veedor scaled the wall up to the ceiling and reached for a coil of string in his pouch. He slowly let out the string until it was dangling over Virginia ’s lips. Veedor started letting small amounts of the potion run down the string. She started licking the honey sweet potion from her lips.
“Not too much Veedor.” Whispered Sanon watching from the window waiting for the potion to take effect.
“Okay. We’ll a wait a couple of minutes before we take her.” Said Veedor putting the string and bottle of potion back into his pouch. Sanon pushed the window open wide, stepped inside and rolled out the carrier they fashioned on the floor near her bed. Virginia was now in a deep sleep as Veedor nudge her to make sure.
“Take her legs Sanon and I’ll lift her under her arms. Be careful, Ramos will not want to see any marks or bruises.”
They laid her into the carrier and carefully wrapped and bound her soft body with leather straps and moved her to window.
“Wait, okay now, the moon is covered by the clouds.” Whispered Veedor as they leaped from the window spreading their massive wings sailing and disappearing into the clouds. A couple of hours later they arrived at Sanon’s lair.
“I will keep an eye on her my friend and nurse her with the potion until I’ve here from you.” Sanon said shaking Veedors hand.
“Thank you again my friend. I couldn’t have done this without your help. I’ll return soon after I find out what Kara and Torak have come up with.”
Veedor went to The Gathering hole to meet up with Kara and Torak. It was nearly day light. ‘I hope they found a decent virgin’ he thought to himself ordering another drink. ‘Where the fuck are they, shit!’ he continued to think to himself in frustration. Just as he was about to get up to leave he saw Torak entering and heading his way.
“We found one Veedor” Torak said reaching for Veedor’s stein.
“Not so fast Torak” Veedor said grabbing his reaching hand “Where is the virgin?”
“She is with Kara. She is keeping an eye on her until I return.”
“You didn’t fuck her did you? I know your appetite for sweet untainted meat.”
“Do I look like I lost my mind? I want to live at least another hundred years if not longer.”
“You better not be lying. Ramos will turn you into dust on the spot, but that’s not before he tortures you limb by limb.” Veedor released his wrist and took the stein from his hand. “Get your own.” He said taking a long draw.
“How about you, did you find one or trusted that we would not fail you.”
“Failure is your problem with Ramos, I trust no one, and yes I have a virgin as well.”
“Then we have nothing to worry about, we have two virgins.” Smiled Torak feeling a rush of relief come over him.
“I’ll meet you tonight at Lord Ramos presentation feast. Be forewarned here and now, do not screw the virgin or I will watch you be tortured to death.” Veedor said throwing back the last of his drink then grabbing Torak by the collar. “Remember, virgin or you die”.
Chapter 3 – The Presentation of Virginia
Veedor knocked at Sanon’s door.
“Sanon, it is I Veedor.” Sanon check through a small crack in his door to make sure it was Veedor before letting him in.
“Veedor, come in, come in. Have some fresh meat and bread with me.”
“Thank you Sanon.”
“Did they find a virgin?”
“Yes, so Torak says. I don’t trust him for a minute. I warned him what will happen to him if he fucks her.”
“Don’t I know it, Ramos will not be pleased to say the least. Shit, he’d kill him on the spot if not torture him first in front of everyone.”
“That’s exactly what I told him would happen. How is the virgin?”
“She is still sleeping like a baby. Ramos will be very pleased with our find I’m sure.”
“I have no doubt. You rest my friend I’ll take over the watch now.”
“Thank you. It has been a good day. It reminds me of old times.”
“Yes my friend, old times.”
Maidens began decorating Ramos’s lair for tonight’s feast and presentation. The sound of music and smell of fruit and meats filled the air. The night was clear and the moon full as Ramos’s three sorceress sisters had predicted. They also warned Ramos that there is a plan to deceive him but they couldn’t tell who or when from their readings. Lord Ramos began pacing back and forth in his private chamber waiting for his most trusted commander Maximus to arrive. He heard a knock at his door. ‘Finally’ he thought to himself opening the door quickly.
“Yes my lord” said Maximus bowing before Ramos
“I want you to keep an eye on Torak and Kara tonight. I have been informed that they have found a virgin for me, however I’m aware of Torak’s appetite for fresh virgins and don’t trust him. He should know better, but I want to make sure he doesn’t escape if it comes to be that he has deceived me by having his way with what is mine. Am I making myself clear commander?”
“Yes my lord, very clear.”
