Well, welcome to chapter 4. I hope you're enjoying this fic so far (if anyone's read it yet) enjoy this chapter and please R&R. Thanks. ^^
Integra opened her eyes to find she was in a strange place. It was dark and misty and she looked down to find she was floating on water. A cold breeze blew by and made Integra shiver. She wished she had something warmer on besides her pajamas.
In front of Integra the shadows began to shift. Alucard? No, it wasn’t him. She squinted her eyes and saw a figure form and walk towards her on the water. As the form got closer Integra saw it was a girl with long blue hair. The girl seemed to be somewhere between 17 and 20 years old and was wearing black pants that cuffed at the bottoms, a deep violet button up blouse, and a black cloak with a hood that seemed to be made of some sort of heavy material. When the girl reached Integra and stopped about a foot away, Integra saw the girl’s right eye was blue and her left eye was green.
“Who are you?” Integra questioned as more of a demand.
The girl smiled slightly.
“My name is Megami Ryuuzaki of the Silence Demon clan.”
Integra furrowed her brow.
The girl smiled wider and chuckled.
“You will find out what I mean in time.” Megami replied vaguely.
“Are you the one that attacked the woman in the park outside of London?”
“No.” Megami replied, not smiling anymore. “But i do know who did. That’s why I’m here. To help you.”
Suddenly the world around Integra began to slowly vanish. Integra turned to the girl again.
“What’s going on.”
Integra was about to ask what she meant when the girl finally disappeared and Integra fell into darkness.
Integra’ s head shot up from it’s cradle on her arms. She was sitting at her desk. The rain had cleared up and the sun was setting out the window behind her. She had fallen asleep and had been dreaming again.
Integra adjusted her glasses on her nose and cleared her throught. She noticed a cup of tea on a tray at the end of her desk. Walter must have come up with it while she slept. She reached over and grabbed it taking a sip. It was still warm. She sighed. She had called him up to talk, but instead she had fallen asleep. There was something wrong with her. Perhaps she was right when she had thought that lack of sleep and the war had finally caught up to her and was now punishing her. Well, she would speak with Walter later. For now, she needed to find out what was going on with her. Integra stood and decided she needed to talk with someone who would be able to sense if there was something amiss with her health faster than any doctor.
“Well...What brings my master down to see me?”
Integra walked through the doorway into Alucard’s chambers. He had already known she was coming to him when she opened the door to the lower levels. He already knew what she had come to ask him.
Integra stopped a few feet from her vampire and simply stared at him. Blood packs were strewn around his “throne” unceremoniously.
“Quit the ignorance act. You know why I’m here. And don’t give me any of your lies.”
Alucard smirked. Damn, there went his plans to keep her in the dark about what he had seen that afternoon in her eyes.
“This afternoon when I was giving you my report your right eye changed to green for an instant.” he explained nonchalantly.
“Green?” Integra said as more of a statement than a question.
An image of the girl from her dream flashed in Integra’s mind. Alucard saw it and frownled slightly.
“Who is she?”
“I don’t know...” Integra replied not really paying attention.
She finally realized Alucard had read her mind and glared at him.
“I don’t appreciate you infiltrating my thoughts.”
Alucard’s smirk returned.
Integra sighed heavily. She supposed she should probably tell him about her dream. He may be able to help figure out the mystery. So she explained her dream and told him what the girl named Megami had said to her. Alucard rolled her words over in his mind.
“If she claims she’s here to help, then I suppose we let her help.”
Integra nodded, her expression blank. Alucard stared at her with an unreadable expression.
“You’re worried.” He said to her quietly.
Alucard stood and closed the distance between them. Before Integra had time to ask him what he was doing he slipped his armes around her waist and held her close. Integra’s eyes widened. What the hell was he doing? Though it was a nice distraction from the current problem. Integra rested her head on his right shoulder as he rested his on her right shoulder near her neck. Somehow, Integra wasn’t worried though he was so close. He could have bitten any moment, but didn’t. She knew he wouldn’t.
Alucard released her suddenly and stepped back just as the door opened and Seras and Walter walked in. integra turned to them.
“Have you found anything?” She asked.
Walter shook his head.
“No Sir Integra, there’s been another attack.” Seras replied.
“In the same day?”
“I’ll be up right away.”
Walter and Seras nodded and left quickly. Integra turned to face Alucard. They stared at each other for a moment before Integra spoke.
“I will be accompanying you and Seras to check this out.”
Alucard nodded. Integra turned to leave but stopped briefly in the doorway.
“Thank you.” She said quietly.
It was so faint she hardly heard it herself, but Alucard heard it loud and clear.
Integra had continued on her way and never did hear Alucard’s reply.
