WHAT IS DEAD
may never die


Finally. The harbour of Brightwater Keep. After the long journey they were finally back in Rhoynar. Where he belonged. His mood was kind of cheerful, for fucking once. What a miracle. The Captain noticed how the city was.. More quiet than usual. It was obvious that something had happened, though he had no idea what. Also, he didn’t really care. As long as he could spend his night drinking in some bar, it didn’t matter to him. While the crew was docking the ship, he went into his private quarters. He paid no attention to the redhead, who was chained up at her ankle. He simply went on with his business. Gathering the treasures he had kept, because they were worth too much to keep them in the haul.

The man was about to decide which gems he would sell, when he heard shouting on the deck. An annoyed growl escaped his chest as he quickly hid the box again. With a frown on his face and amber eyes radiating anger, he opened the door again and stepped out. What he saw, made him freeze for a second. Armed men, dressed in the familiar uniform that identified them as guards of the Duke of Rhoynar, had flooded the deck. They had their weapons ready. But so did his crew. All the men turned towards him, waiting for a sign. ”Romeo Haris, you are under arrest”, One man said, his voice loud and bold. The Captain pulled up the corner of his mouth in a half smirk. ”Oh I think not”, He simply replied, pulling his weapon.

All hell broke loose. Men were shouting, weapons clattered against each other. Two guards came for him while the others tried to keep his crewmembers away from him. Blood was flowing, people were running or even jumping overboard. Romeo parried the spear that was coming for him blunt end first. They were not trying to kill him, obviously. Unfortunately for them, he wasn’t holding back. The first guard went down, a gash running over his thigh. Unable to get up again. He hampered the second guard. With the hilt of his sword, he punched the man in the face, the satisfying sound of his nose breaking was clearly audible over his scream of pain.

More guards were now coming at him, and eventually they managed to overpower him. ”Yield!” One of the guards shouted while he swung his bat towards his chest. The blunt weapon managed to hit him, and all air was punched out of his lungs. Romeo collapsed, while two other men disarmed him. ”Parlay”, He growled. ”Take me to your damn Duke”, He said, spitting out some blood. He had bit his tongue. Goddammit. ”Stand down”, He ordered his crew, who obeyed reluctantly. The guards flanked him, while holding his upper arms. As if he would escape. No, he had invoked the right of parlay, and he would not break the Code.

After a long, boring walk, they finally reached the damned castle. Never had he ever thought to set foot here. He wondered why the Duke would want to arrest him. Yes, he was a criminal. A pirate. But Rhoynar was filled with outlaws. His crimes were not spectacular. At least not spectacular enough to draw the attention of the Duke. Romeo was brought into the throne room. He was bleeding from several shallow cuts. When he caught the eye of the man he had punched earlier, he couldn’t help but smile. Amber eyes full of mockery. His face was ruined, his nose obviously broken. Alright. He was here. Now what?

I'm headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the Kingdom locked up
All these minutes passing, sick of feeling used. If you wanna break these walls down, you’re gonna get bruised. And now my neck is open wide, begging for a fist around it. Already choking on my pride, so there's no use crying about it
Soon, the party would be hosted. The people would come to learn about their new Duke and Duchess. In the meantime, Allison had been busy with everything that needed to be arranged. From simple paperwork to handling the employees that worked at the castle. These days had been busy and it was almost unbelievable that a few days ago, her life had been so different. She raised her hand, carefully inspecting the ring that now had its place around her finger. She wasn’t quite sure what she felt about it. It had been quick. Too quick. But at the same time, she knew she had made the right decision.

The Duchess had taken care of most things over the course of the last day, leaving today for her personal business. That was, after all, something she could not forget about. She had met up with her most important employees in the castle. Giovanni’s death was easily accepted as soon as they realised she had made her way to Duchess. Now she just needed to make sure to put the fear of God in them as Giovanni did. While she was planning to play Good Cop for the people of Rhoynar, that same plan wasn’t going to work for the Syndicate.

And then there was still the matter of the Cure. She had made the promise to many people and knew she couldn’t stop looking into this cure. It had to come. For the people who had never chosen to become what they became. For Kaz, even though she was starting to lose hope that he would actually take it. Her stomach turned and she let her hand fall on her lap again, staring at the door as it suddenly opened.

Calmly, the woman crossed her legs, leaning back in her very fancy chair throne. “Did I not tell you to bring him to me unharmed?” she spoke, raising a brow, her gaze moving from one guard to the other. “Romeo, it has been a while.”

“Did I not tell you to bring him to me unharmed?”

That voice. Familiar. No. Impossible. His attention shifted from the guards around him to the woman, casually chilling on the throne. Confusion was clearly visible in his eyes. Well now his mood was ruined for sure. “Romeo, it has been a while.” She continued. ”Allison fucking Lenier”, He reacted, an angry yet slightly surprised tone in his voice. ”I knew I would run into you again eventually. I just had hoped it would have been some time later”, He said, bluntly honest. He could feel the guards couldn’t believe their ears. How this criminal dared to speak to the Duchess. ”I see you made promotion”, He noted, looking around the room. He had been gone for too long, hadn’t he?

The Duchess raised her hand once Romeo recognised her. A soft nod towards the guards made clear that they could step back, giving Romeo some room to move. She was well aware she couldn’t trust him, but he was well aware he couldn’t trust her either. His words caused a smile to appear on her face again. “And here I was,” she started calmly. “Expecting to hear from you sooner rather than later, but word stayed out.” An eyebrow was raised as she looked at the man. After all, she hadn’t called him in here because he was a pirate, because he had violated some kind of law. Honestly. She didn’t really care. She had called him in here, because of an agreement they had.

For a second it seemed she was going to open her mouth, but instead she stood up, walking up to the guard with the broken nose and softly placing her hand on his cheek. “If you had done your job better, you could have avoided a fight,” she calmly told the guard, a smile on her face. It was as if the people of Rhoynar were uncapable of solving anything without turning it into a bloody mess. It was ridiculous. As she spoke, she put her hands on the nose of the guard. She formed a triangle with both hands. “So this is on you.” While she spoke, she made sure the nose was realigned, causing some angry noises by the man, before he stepped backwards. “Now leave us, please,” she spoke, after a short silence, facing Romeo again.

Suddenly his arrest made sense. Romeo had expected Duke Bayard, but he was met by Allison. Even more so, summoned to the castle by her. How she had acquired the throne, was none of his business. He didn’t really care either. The previous Duke was probably dead, but he sure wouldn’t miss him. The Captain now knew he wasn’t here to stand trial for some meaningless crime. No. He was here because he had neglected his job. She confirmed his suspicions soon after. She seemed calm, but he didn’t buy it. As a manipulator and liar himself, he didn’t expect anyone to be honest and sincere anymore. It was just too easy to deceive people with a little bit of practise.

The brunette stepped off her throne, towards the guard he had wounded. She gave the man a lecture, while realigning his nose. Romeo couldn’t hold back a grin when he heard the man curse in pain. After that, the guards were sent away. He watched them go, but he realised they wouldn’t be too far away. He wasn’t planning on harming Allison, but with his mood.. Things could go south in the beat of a heart. When the guards were gone, he focussed his gaze back on her. ”My job was to gather information and report back to you. If I don’t report, I have no information”, He shrugged. It wasn’t that hard to figure out.

For a second, the men seemed to doubt if it would be the right decision to walk away. However, a quick glare from the Duchess was enough to send them their way, closing the door behind them. Romeo was probably as well aware of the fact that they were still at the door as she was. They wouldn’t leave their new Duchess alone. The only guards she had kept, after all, were those who had sworn loyalty to their new Duchess and Duke. Those who had something to say… had been for Kaz to handle. She’d rather pretend they never existed than think of what would happen to them.

Allison raised a brow when Romeo spoke again. “It is quite hard to do your job if you vanish,” she noted. Now, she had to admit that she had no one paying a close eye to the man. Still, him vanishing from Rhoynar for a while without a word, had been something she would have liked to know beforehand. “So I can understand why you haven’t gathered any.” For a second she looked back at her throne, before her eyes fell upon Romeo again, slowly raising a brow.

It would be incredibly stupid to try and kill her in her own castle. It was also incredibly unnecessary. They had no issues personally, so why would he want to? Fair, she had threatened him with a needle the first time they met. But he couldn’t say he had never threatened someone with a weapon to get what he wanted either. It was business to him. Nothing personal. Besides, she had summoned him for a reason. He wanted to know why. Though the message she brought, wasn’t exactly what he wanted to hear.

”Are you accusing me of betrayal?” He hissed angrily. The man clenched his jaw, fixing her with a burning gaze. He was a lot of things. A liar, manipulator, murderer, fanatic, extremist, torturer. She was more than right not to trust him. He wouldn’t blame her for doing so either. What she wasn’t allowed to do, was doubt his word. If he agreed on a deal, he would respect that deal until it was fulfilled or discarded. So naturally, his reaction to her words was not all too positive.

He was a spicy one. The kind that would make any sane person back off, walk away. Yet, Allison had decided to trust this man in a deal. Personally, she knew that this man was probably one of the most untrustworthy men she-... No, that was a lie. The world knew a lot of untrustworthy men and he was simply one of them.

Yet, he had given her no reason to think he wouldn’t keep his word. So when he spoke again, the woman sighed. “I am not,” she calmly spoke. “I am accusing you of vanishing without a word,” she told him. “So please tell me, Romeo,” she went on, pulling her hand through her hair. “What was so important that you missed your payment?” It was the only reason she knew he was gone. Her poor guy had looked for him wherever he could, until word had reached him that the ship had left shore a week ago.

If she was as much as insinuating he had broken their deal, no guard in this castle would be able to stop him from hurting her. In all the possible bad ways. Probably with her ending up dead. Which wouldn’t be the greatest of plans as he would most likely lose his life as well. Sadly, with no trusted member of his crew around, it was very hard to keep calm. Conan, who was usually his voice of reason, was still back on the ship. So Romeo would have to try to cool down on his own. Not an easy task. And one he had never been good at either.

Luckily there was one magical word. The word that made the world go around. Payment. The man exhaled to regain control over his anger. ”The circumstances forced me to spend more time in Navarre than I had calculated”, He replied coldly. The tone in his voice gave away he wouldn’t share the reason why he had been there. Because she had no reason to interfere with his other business.

Allison was well aware of the risk she put herself in when she had told her guards to stand outside, but she also did not trust them enough to let them know she had business of her own. This conversation had very little to do with her newest acquired rank, only with the fact that the two had made a deal beforehand. She would never speak to him outside of her own safe zones, however. He would end her life without a second thought if it was of no risk to him. But, she was the one paying him. So, as long as she kept him even remotely calm…

Navarre. “That’s a long trip,” she noted slowly, before changing the subject. “You have been hurt by my men.” A soft nod towards the blood, as if he didn’t know it himself yet. “My sincerest apologies. They disobeyed my orders,” she went on. Their punishment would be handled later. The last thing she wanted, was angry pirates. Or, well… Pirates who were even more angry than they were to begin with. “I would offer to take a look, but…” A sigh as she shook her head. Hopeless.

Of course he travelled. That was the whole reason why she had hired him in the first place. He got to other cities, met more people, got involved in activities that could reward him with both coin and information. Whatever he could get his hands on that was of any value. Information he sold to people like Allison. Because she sure wasn’t the only one he shared certain matters with. It was none of her concern though. He wasn’t loyal to her. She paid him for his services, and as long as she would do so, he would try to maintain a civil bond. Try being the keyword here.

For a second, he was afraid she would ask for details. She proved to be smarter than that. She brought up another subject. Sincerest apologies, sure. ”I’m fine. They’re not deep”, He denied her offer, as expected. If she would let him go any time soon.. He now had his own way to fix these kind of situations.

The smell of blood was in the air. For a moment Kaz had worried, thinking that something was wrong. But he noticed how the castle had been silent. No screaming, no rushing footsteps. All was well. But that didn't stop Kaz from following the scent. After all these weeks, he still didn't have it under control, he was managing but he really had to talk with Mort about it. His brother needed to hurry up. For once in his life, Kaz was willing to talk, openly. His brother better not waste that oppertunity.

The vampire walked past a corner, looking at the group of guards in front of the throneroom. One of them seemed to be the scource of the blood. Kaz frowned, halting for a bit. ''You look a little rough around the edges, Gareth.'' Kaz spoke with a mischievous smile tugging at his lips. He didn't care about the guard. He just had to be happy Kaz had already fed this morning. The vampire patted him on the shoulder. ''Still ugly as hell as always.'' The guard only shot him a dirty look. He couldn't do anything, after all, Kaz was the Duke. And they knew what happened when disloyal men met the Duke.

But Kaz' attention was drawn to the room again. A heartbeat. Not one, but two. And again the lingering smell of blood. Without saying anything more, Kaz opened one of the doors. Only to find Allison in the room. And another dude all bruised and bloodied. What a surprise. The vampire raised a brow, closing the door behind him. ''Lunch is served late, it seems.'' He spoke calmly, letting his eyes rest on the man for a bit before he looked at Allison again, stepping closer to her. ''I already ate, though.'' If you could even call it eating. Besides, this man didn't look very.. tasteful.

He was fine. Allison sighed, but decided not to pay any more attention to it. Romeo would be Romeo and she wasn’t planning on spending more time on that than was needed. He would be able to take care of himself. He had done so and would do so. “That’s good,” she answered. “How about we get you your payment for the month.” Another sign of good will: he hadn’t done much, yet she had only called him in here to give him his payment. Just like he did, she wanted to honor their deal. He would get paid more if he actually proved to be useful, which he knew. Perhaps this would give him some reason to be.

When the door opened, the Duchess looked over her shoulder. Kaz. It was like her heart skipped a beat everytime he entered the room, causing a faint smile on her face. “Kaz,” she greeted him after he had spoken, before she turned her gaze to Romeo again. “This is an acquaintance of mine, Romeo,” she spoke calmly. Not lunch. “Romeo, this is Kaz. The new Duke.” And her husband. Well then. She hadn’t quite anticipated to introduce these two to eachother.

Even though she had honestly helped him last time he was wounded, this time he would fix this issue himself. No more sketchy needles. This time he was prepared, so she shouldn’t even try to stab him unannounced. He politely declined her offer. She accepted it without any protest, to his surprise. She even offered to get him his payment. The Captain nodded. Some extra coin was always welcome, of course. If he would sell his plunder, he would have more than enough to pay his crew and have some repairs done to his ship. There was only one little problem. Someone opened the door to the throne room, which made him shift his attention to him.

The man that had entered, was introduced as Kaz. A name that surely rang a bell. Just another thief he knew from the streets of Brightwater Keep. Well congratulations. He had made it to the top. Wasn’t that the dream? ”So the previous one died at the hands of the type of sewer rats he so desperately tried to avoid”, He chuckled, all too amused by the whole situation. Hiding behind his walls, high up the cliff. Far away from the commonfolk that lived down below. Pirates, thieves, murderers, criminals. The type of people royalties looked down upon. Romeo wanted to warn them not to make the same mistakes. But he decided to keep his comment to himself, for once. As a sign of loyalty, if you will.

Kaz returned the smile at Allison, walking closer to stand next to her. He let his eyes glide over the tattooed man in front of him. What a mess. His nose was obviously broken and the blood had dried. Yet the smell was in the air and Kaz wasn't really enjoying it. But, he had been curious so he only had to blame himself. He was introduced to the man. Romeo. He didn't look like a Romeo. But Kaz trusted Allison wasn't lying.

The thief raised his brow when the man spoke, crossing his arms on his chest. ''Gods, he even smells annoying.'' Kaz groaned, rolling his eyes. ''But thanks for the compliment.'' He wanted to flash his teeth, only to remind himself of his fangs, so the smile turned more into a grimace. He hoped not all of Allison's 'aqquintances' would be like this. Or they were about to have a talk.
