Sixty-Four: The Agony & the Ecstasy

Warning: although there’s no sex, some of the content in this chapter might be considered inappropriate.

“Shit… I’m so sorry Kat. I don’t know what the hell I was thinking.”

“No! You don’t get to apologize! You don’t get to kiss me, and then change your fucking mind to make YOURSELF feel better!”

“So make up your fucking mind already! Either you want me or you don’t! I’m sick of it!”


“Do you have any idea how scared I am of my own feelings?”

No, I don’t. Because you never tell me, she thought.

“The last time I felt this strongly, I got fucked over,” he muttered.

You’re talking about my mother?

Shuffling came from outside.

“What was that?”

Crash. A Dempire kicked in the door.


Oh, God!

Wait… his face. She knew him from somewhere.

Seemed like forever he gawked at her, his face expressionless. Then recognition flickered.

He knew her too.

“I never wanted to scare you,” he said. “Don’t worry. I won’t let them hurt you.”

“Don’t let them hurt Hunter, either.”

He nodded.

“This room is all clear!” he called.

“Stay safe,” he whispered. “They’ll be looking for your father next.”

She drew in a deep breath, held it.

“I’ll do what I can to make sure you don’t get hurt.”

“Thank you,” she replied as quietly as she could. She glanced at Hunter.

His face was stoic, cold. Was he mad about something?

OMG. He was jealous!

“What took you so long in there?” one of them asked, sounding suspicious.

“There was a funny looking rat in there. It had black fur,” he said.


Hunter rolled his eyes.

Once it was quiet, Hunter closed the door.

“I’m sorry about earlier,” she said.

“Yeah. Me too.”

“I love you, Hunter.”

“I love you too.”

Her eyes widened.


“It should be daylight by now,” he said. “We’ll try to leave in a few more hours.”


“I have to take a piss. I can’t wait any longer.” He got up.

She moved away from the door.

“Be right back,” he said heading out.

Kat sneezed. Likely from all the dust in Purgatory.

Tinkle tinkle. The sound of Hunter’s peeing. She had to go too, but didn’t feel like squatting in a corner.

That tinkling made her want to go even more. But she was determined to hold it in.

He returned a moment later.

“I have to feed again,” he said.

“Yeah. I figured.”


For some reason, this time it hurt even worse than before. She tried to block out the pain.

At least she didn’t get dizzy.

He moaned.

Wow. Must’ve really been hungry… or something.

Just like before, he kissed her afterward. But this kiss was different.

His mouth opened wide, as if trying to devour her face.

Oh, my God. Now she felt dizzy.

Here it comes! His tongue! The Frenchie I’ve been waiting for!

Her tongue met his. It felt weird as it slid into her mouth. Those pleasant sensations in her lower tummy intensified.

Mmmm… so good,” he said. His lips trailed down her neck, licked the old blood.

Jesus. He was turning her on.

Again, his mouth found hers.

“Make love to me?” she asked.


“Why can’t we do it?” she asked.

“Because it’s bad enough we’re doing this.”

His finger traced her lips, parted them, then claimed them in a kiss.

Tired of straining her neck, she stood on her tip toes to meet his lips.

Slowly, he withdrew.

“We really shouldn’t be doing this.”

“Yes we should.”

“You’re so young. Vaclav would annihilate me if he knew.”

“No. He can’t hurt you. If you die, that means I’ll die.”

Sitting in the corner, Hunter held her as she rested against his chest.

They waited.

Nighttime came.

He kissed the back of her head and said, “I need to make sure they left.”

She got up. He ventured outside the room.

Hunter peered around the corner.

It was very still, quiet.

“I think they’re gone. Let’s go.”

A few minutes passed as they made their way to the first level.

Hand-in-hand, they walked down the corridor toward the waiting area.

A dead body greeted them.

“This is what we’ll do,” he said. “You go wait in my office while I call Vaclav and warn him about the Dempires. Hopefully they haven’t arrived at your house yet.”

She turned around and headed back into the hallway.

Nervously, she waited for Hunter to let her know what was happening.

Hunter entered the room. Kat jumped.

“You’re not going to like this,” he said.


What? What is it? For Christ’s sake, just TELL me!

“Vaclav managed to fight off the Dempires. But more will be coming. He wants you and Aubrey to get out of Shadowvale, while Reznik stays behind to help.”

“I’m not leaving my home! I’m not leaving you!”

“I’ll be going with you,” he said. “Vaclav contacted someone a few towns away, who lives near a hospital and can get us blood and other supplies. That way, we’ll have sustenance and you’ll still get your treatments for I-DAS.”

“And I have enough injections for the lycanthropy to last a month. I’ll take those with me.”

“I still don’t want to go. I’m scared.”

“Your mother’s going to be with you, I’m going to be with you. For once I agree with Vaclav. It’s the only safe way.”

“When are we leaving?”

“As soon as I pack a few things.”

She looked away.

Everything was changing. All of it happening way too fast.


Yet another song for your listening jollies (and yes, it’s ancient):

  1. Ooooh, first to comment ^_^

    I loled at Kat’s face in the pic when that guy barged through the door XP
    They’re moving away? 0.o Does that mean we won’t hear from Kat for a few chapters…or will the vamps follow them? >:)
    I got really worried for a second when I though Hunter wasn’t coming 0.0 But all’s good, he is *phew*
    Another great chapter πŸ˜€

    • hi there!
      haha, the surprised look on her face is pretty funny. Good ol’ Twallan’s animator! btw that’s also how I got them to ‘kiss’, well aside from the vampire poses. Now I have the woohooer, so around chapter 70 their kisses will be ‘real’. πŸ˜›

      Oh, no. The next chapters will take place wherever Kat is. So no worries there. You’ll have to find out if any baddies follow them or not! πŸ˜€

      Oh hell yes Hunter’s coming too! Wasn’t about to have him and Kat kiss, and then separate them already!

      Thank you Tiny!! <3333

  2. Great Chapter as usual! πŸ™‚

    I loved it πŸ˜€ Hunter and Kat are great together and (lol) he was so jelous of the dempire πŸ˜† Also happy that they have escaped and I am glad V, Rez and Aubrey are all okay πŸ™‚

    Hunter cant keep his hands off Kat but the way this is going he might have to while their around Aubrey or that will be akward πŸ˜† And when he said your not gonna like this I thought they were dead or that he wasnt going I was noooooooo!!!!!!

    I hope no-one dies (Hunter, Kat, Aubery,V, Rez ect.) and I hope these dempires get whats coming !! πŸ˜€ Yeah I am mean πŸ˜€

    Anyway great update cant wait for more πŸ˜€

    • hi James! Thanks so much! πŸ˜€

      Yeah he was jealous of Omega. O_O That’s pretty bad that he’s already possessive. Maybe not such a thing thing… anyhow, yep, Aubrey and them lived through the attack! Good thing they’re moving away.

      That would be very awkward indeed. LOL! Don’t worry, he’ll definitely keep his hands off Kat while Aubrey’s around. Sorry for the scare when Hunter said that. XD

      lol, no you’re not mean. Those Dempires are baaaad, except for Omega. I have something shocking planned for Omega later, though. mwahahaha. And It’s not what you’re thinking!

      Thank you again! *hugs*

      • Oooooo………Cant wait and I think I may have an idea of what your planning to do. πŸ™‚

        And Hunter better do or things will become very akward πŸ˜• And I really have a hatred of the Dempires – No idea why – but oh well their fault for be mean! πŸ™‚

        Your making it really hard to wait for the next chapter its killing me this wait Lol! πŸ™‚

        Great Update Cant Wait For More!!!!! πŸ˜€

      • hehe! Now I’m curious about your idea. But maybe you shouldn’t tell me, in case it’s correct. O_O

        Things are going to end up awkward no matter what, lol. It’ll be awkward for everyone involved. The next chapter coming up will be pretty funny, though. :p Maybe you hate the Dempires because I gave them a funny name? lol. Or maybe because of their horns/wings? They look weird. Yeah, they’re very mean. It’s all Pavel’s fault, he turned them that way!

        Aw, sorry! It’s about 4 more days!

        Thank you James! πŸ˜€

      • Lol! I wont but I’ll tell you if my idea does happen πŸ™‚

        Oooo a funny chapter πŸ˜€ Nice! πŸ™‚
        I dont know its just I hate them πŸ˜† lol! its really weird πŸ˜•

        I know 4 more days ahhhhhhhh! how will I last πŸ˜•

      • OK, sounds good! πŸ˜›

        Yeah, some parts of it are kinda comical… you’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it. hehe

        well they’re evil, so I don’t blame you! Except for Omega, he’s not too bad.

        Well now it’s 3 more days. I promise I’ll publish two chapters within the next few weeks. LIke I’ll do one on Thursday, and then another one on Monday. πŸ˜€

      • Awsome thanks, but dont force yourself if you dont have time its okay πŸ˜€

        I cant wait to see it, and okay I’ll be looking for the comedy πŸ™‚
        Yeah Omega is nice-ish but I’m still not certain on him *shifty* theres something he’s hiding.

    • aw, thanks. I do have time, they’re finished up to 70, so it’s not a problem or anything. πŸ™‚

      Cool! It has something to do with Vaclav, btw.

      Maybe Omega’s not hiding anything. He’s probably not smart enough to, lol. He’s kind of a dumb blond. Cute, but dumb. πŸ˜†

      • Hahahaha I didnt think Omega would be a dumb blonde, lol! that made me laugh πŸ˜€ πŸ˜†

        Oh okay then I think you should post two πŸ˜† πŸ™‚ That would be awsome! πŸ˜€

        Ooooo and to do with V, hmmmmm….cant wait to see it then πŸ™‚

      • LOL! Poor Omgega. That’s mean. πŸ˜› But yeah, he’s pretty… intellectually challenged. Um, I hope it’s not too politically incorrect to say that. O_O

        Cool! I promise I will sometime within the next couple weeks!

        Just a couple more days now! πŸ˜€ ^_^

  3. all caught up!!! and now i have to wait….great update by the way!!! eeeee i was so hoping that hunter would kiss Kat πŸ˜€

    • Yay! Glad you’re caught up now, and still enjoying the story! I think the romance really helps, right? hehe

      Yep he finally kissed her! Gave her that Frenchie she’s always wanted too, lol.

      Thanks for commenting Alyssa! πŸ˜€ <3333

  4. You never fail at making me have RL reactions. That “L” had me saying “WHAT?!!” Lol then I screamed “Yes!” I just hope this can work somehow. Things were messed up with Aubrey. She belonged to Vaclav so it was never meant to be but I do love the thought of Omega! Ha, I remember his name! Looks like he has a thing for Kat too. Lucky girl!
    Ohhhhh I wonder if Aubrey will catch on to Kat and Hunter since she’ll be with them but I see him trying to add distance with her around. DAMN!

    I can’t think about Reznik without laughing now because of how he was smiling when they were about to kill Pavel.

    • hey Qui! Aww, thanks. As for that L part, it just seemed so natural to write that in. Not sure why. I guess because Hunter’s known Kat for so long, and now she’s old enough to be romantic with, so it just all made sense. *swoons* I love romance, lol. Yes that’s cheezy. XD Like you said, Aubrey and H were never really meant to be, but maybe H and Kat are. :p As for Omega, you’ll find out how he fits into things in a few more chapters.

      Lucky girl indeed. :p

      Hunter will add distance from Kat whenever A’s around, but that doesn’t necessarily mean A won’t find out somehow. Eventually… hehe

      lol about Rez. He’s such a baddie, yet goodie (in some ways). <3333

  5. yay! im always excited for a new chapter!!!lol
    hmmm, thinking about it, its still very, i guess, weird that Kat likes hunter, who has been with Aubrey, her mother, before. but im not complaining, i love the drama! πŸ˜€
    cant wait for the next chapter!
    ps, i LOVE the band Rush, im glad im not the only one who actually knows who they are, lol πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Gabby! πŸ˜€
      True, it is weird when you think about it. Plus Hunter used to be Kat’s babysitter. O.o Can’t get much crazier than that…

      Glad you like the drama! I like writing it! :p

      OMG you actually know about Rush?? Well I’m glad I’M not the only one who knows about them! Most, if not all, of my readers are younger than me (a lot are teens, I suspect lol) so they’d never know who Rush is. lol. I always liked them because my older brother listened to their music in the 80’s, like Boston, Led Zeppelin, etc. So then I started listening to the same shizz.

      OK, I’ll admit it. I’m old (36). ugh… πŸ˜›


  6. Sorry I haven’t commented in AGES – been super busy and haven’t had time to read this story:(
    I’m all caught up now though, and I loved all the previous ones..whoa. Hunter and KAT?! Crazay.

    • Aww no problem Emma. Just glad you’re still reading my crazy story. πŸ˜† Better late than nevah. πŸ˜€

      Glad you’re all caught up now! ^^ And yeah, it’s pretty crazy about Kat and Hunter!


  7. Great chapter update. I’m sure you never get tired of read this. XD Good thing for Kat they escaped before she really needed to use the bathroom. That just cracks me up in movies…no one needs to use the john anymore. Ahahaha..oh, that doesn’t mean, I want to see a woman pee, btw.

    I think Hunter is transferring his feelings for Aubrey onto Kat. poor girl. He is such a cool character. Are you bringing the wolf back any time?

    How long does it take you to write a chapter? For that secondary story I told you about…it took me maybe four days to come up with the screenshots and another seven hours straight to get all together yesterday. I completely forgot my dinner… and it was steak, too! And of course, this morning I’m editing typos, argh!

    …and we’re back on your story! Maybe in an effort to thwart those dempires (at least only the real ugly ones) both vampire clans could call a truce and fight together.

    • hehe hi there again! And thank you! Bwahahahahaha, about them leaving before Kat pissed herself (basically). Rofl! Also good point about people not needing to go in movies. Just watched this one movie where the girl and guy DID have to pee, and they were trapped on a ski slope, in one of those thingies up high (can’t remember what they call those) LOL. It was easy for the guy to piss, not so much for the poor girl. 😦 haha I didn’t figure you’d want to see a woman pee. :p

      I never even thought much about that, but that could certainly happen if it were RL. Of course it’d make a good plot too. I sure don’t want to make Hunter hurt Kat though. Then again who knows what the future holds for them. >_> Funny you mention the wolf. ’nuff said, hehe.

      Used to take me a couple days to write a chapter. Now it’s around 6-8 hours. Back whenever I first started it took me probably 3 days to get a chapter finished. But it depends on how many screenshots you use, of course. Sometimes I use 50, other times 70 or so. I kinda rush on all of that. But I know what you mean, it’s not exactly easy doing sim stories. Sorry about your steak, LOL. do you live in TX? haha, people are obsessed with steak around here. πŸ˜› I hate meat, personally. Anyhow, I do my editing while writing, plus proofread again before pubbing. Not to say I still don’t miss shit, though. >.<

      Good point about the Dempires, and lolzers about defeating the really ugly ones! πŸ˜† <3333

      • * *spoiler* * Forgot to say that in a couple of chapters, I actually had Kat bring up the point about Hunter maybe ‘transferring’ his feelings from Aubrey to her. So she does worry about that, briefly. I think it happens in chapter 66.

      • LoL, no I’m not in TX, two states over AZ. But still always happy if steak’s on the menu. πŸ˜€
        I just read your other story ‘Dancer’. That was pretty heavy. She going crackers like that, and then wondering oh he’s not seeing that I’m carrying his baby, and my is he furious about being tied up for 8 days. o.O You have a way for drama, eh? Fine by me. You have a variety of stories out, it’s great. I can’t help but feel a bit inspired and try my hand at something more dramatic. But it’s just not me. I’m a goofball, so it’s tough for me to come up with something dramatic. I think the most drama filled chapter I ever wrote was like, Oh dear, my wife cheated, but I love her, so we try to work it out. o_O
        Anyway, yay for wolvies! And do you get request from simmers to have your characters up for download? I have one character that I don’t want to ‘share’… yet. What do you do?

    • Close enough. XD Probably not much difference between here and there. btw my hubby’s brother used to live in AZ. I always tease my hubby (he likes steak) and tell him how yucky it is. LOLzers

      haha, so you read Dancer? Me and my crazy stories. Yeah, I was trying to make it so the reader would understand why the dude got so mad, even though he’s a pig. XD so yeah, I don’t blame him for being so furious! lol @ the ‘heroine’ going ‘crackers’. :p IDK, not sure why my stories get so dramatic. I guess it’s just something I like to see in movies/books, so I have to write stuff like that too. Along with some comedy relief, of course. Bwahahahahaha, about the ‘wife cheating-still love her-try to work it out’ thing! Well you don’t want too much drama anyway. You don’t want your stories to be like mine, bordering on soap operas!

      I know, I love wolves, werewolves and shape shifters! Too bad the Pets EP is going to have unicorns. LOL. Or maybe there’ll still be werewolves in it as well. I sure hope so. I also hope it has wolves in it, I’ve been needing those for this story since the beginning. Anyways, I’m rambling. Yeah, I got a request to upload both Hunter and V. I’ve also gotten requests before. Usually I say ‘yes’, but if I were you and didn’t want to share a character yet, I’d say no and just explain why.

  8. Loved this chapter. i hope hunter being with aubrey doesn’t bring back some old feelings….


    • hi Carlie. Thank you, glad you liked this one. πŸ˜€ Maybe it won’t bring back old feelings. Maybe Hunter’s finally over Aubrey for good.


  9. Lol awesome ch. as always! Hopefully it can work out with Hunter and Kat without any major problems, but V.’ll be furious once he finds out. I wonder how Aubrey will act when she’s around Hunter too. She would probably be suspicious about Kat and Hunter being ‘close’ eventually when they’re away. Lol I can’t wait to see her reaction once she does find out/ if she finds out. Hopefully the Dempires’ll be destroyed soon, so Aubrey won’t have enough time to become suspicious of Kat and Hunter’s relationship. Can’t wait to read the next chapter :D!

    • hi Mike!
      Thank you! πŸ˜€ Yeah, hopefully it’ll work out between them. But you know how my stories go. LOL. haha, V. will want to kill Hunter if he ever finds out. You’ll find out soon about Aubrey’s reactions, and whether or not she suspects them of fooling around. Might be a while longer before those pesky Demps are destroyed, though. 😦 :p

      Thank you Mike! *hugs* πŸ˜€ (sorry I’d write more but getting sleepy now, lol. Been up for a while).

  10. Awww, as much as I wasn’t routing for the HunterKat combo (not that I’m against it either) I did miss reading the mushy romance. It was sweet to see Hunter finally admit his feelings, and to clarify his previous hot/cold attitude.

    I’m still wondering what role Omega has to play in all this, as he clearly feels something for Kat. What it is exactly, I’m still waiting to find out. Also, if he cares for her like Hunter and Vaclav do, then he’ll keep Hunter alive as well, and go against his clan.

    Interesting how the Haas girls manage to convert vampires, lol.

    Oooo I hope we get to see Rez and Vaclav fight off some demphires. I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get to see the initial fight at the house. I can’t wait to see Rez in action.

    Btw, just so you don’t feel old, I know who Rush is and I listen to them on a semi-regular basis.

    • hi there! πŸ™‚ lol I missed writing that mushy stuff. I can’t believe I did so many chapters without it. Well thanks, even though you weren’t all for it, I’m glad you still liked Hunter talking about his feelings and all that. IDK, it just seemed so natural to get Hunter and Kat hooked up. It was probably predictable, but I just couldn’t resist.

      As for Omega. He’s pretty much proven how much he cares for Kat. If the others find out what he did, they’d destroy him. So that was brave of him to protect Kat & Hunter. He’s a sweet character, kinda like Hunter, but he’s not very smart. That might come back to haunt him later, but maybe not in the way you’d expect.

      LOL, those Haas girls are talented! XD

      haha, you like those fight scenes? I never really thought to show that. O_O Don’t worry, there’ll be some action coming up laterz. At least a little. Not sure if I’ve shown a big fight scene yet between V., Rez and the Demps, but I promise I will after chapter 69. Also, there IS a cool scene with Rez in chapter 67. πŸ˜€

      haha, thanks! That does help! I swear, I can’t believe you younger folk have even heard of Rush! Did your parents listen to them?? XD hehe, ABBA is good too. Me like disco! :p


      • It was predictable, but the combo will add a lot of plot twist and tension between the characters, so it’s a good choice. I can’t wait to see Aubrey’s reaction to everything. Rez’ kid, Hunter and Kat. Mommy’s in for a few surprises! Let’s not even think about what Vaclav will do when he finds all this out (and Rez being bi), cause I’m pretty sure if he found out all at once his head would explode.

        Yes he has, although you haven’t revealed why he cares so much. I’m hoping we’ll find out within the next couple chapters? Lol, not very smart. Well… cute but stupid evens out right?

        I do, but I’m like, an action junkie, so… Yay for cool scene with Rez! It’s funny, there was so much about him earlier, and now it’s all about Kat. In truth, I kinda miss hearing about him.

        Lol, younger folk. I’m not that young. Although I haven’t hit my 30s yet either so…. No my mom never listened to music (and now it’s just country), I discovered them all on my own ^_^

      • Oh, yeah. It will def add TONS of possibilities to this story. That was part of the reason why I did it. As for Aubrey finding out about Rez’s kid, I’m on chapter 71 and still haven’t gone into that yet… lol I know that’s bad. But I finally came up with the exact scenario to use when it’s mentioned, and it will be almost comical. πŸ˜› And yeah, LOL Mommy’s in for a few surprises indeed!! LOL about V’s head exploding if he found out all this shit at the same time! XD

        Oh, the reason why Omega cares so much is simple. He just likes Kat. lol, I know that’s lame. He fell in love with her looks and innocence. :p Omega’s quite a hopeless romantic. I feel really mean, considering what I have planned for him. haha, yes cute but stupid evens out!

        Well we have that in common. I love action too (Quentin Tarantino movies ROCK lol). There will be a lot of action in chapter 68, though. So maybe that’ll help feed your need. XD I know I’ve written a lot about Kat because I’m addicted to the romance thing with her! Don’t worry, Rez is more involved in the future chapters. I’m trying to balance it out, but it’s hard sometimes. My story has too many characters.

        Really? I figured you were a teen! O_O not sure why I thought that. That’s pretty cool though. So your mom never listened to music? All my parents did was listen to country music, and it was always the same songs over and over. UGH, it drove me nuts when I was younger. But the songs my brother listened to were always good. πŸ˜€ It’s crazy though, I think a lot of Rush’s songs came out in the 70’s/early 80’s. btw Tom Sawyer is a pretty cool song too, LOL. :p

      • A teen? Lol, not for quite sometime. I LOVE Tom Sawyer! It’s probably my favourite Rush song.

        Okay, off to read the newest chapter!

      • haha, cool. Tom Sawyer is one of my fave Rush songs too. I also saw a bunch of other Rush songs I’d forgotten about on Youtube, and hell all those are awesome too. Let’s see… there’s Limelight, Fly by Night, and a few others I forgot. They came out with a TON of great songs.

        Thanks Cinnamon!! <3333

  11. Oh no! The Dempires are coming! I wonder if Kat and Hunter will ever go all the way…teehee But anyway, it’s good that she and Aubrey will be safe, but I’m sure they don’t like the idea of Vaclav and Reznik staying behind. I’m glad that one Dempire spared Kat and Hunter…can’t wait to find out more!!!

    • It’s not good at all. D: Well by now you know the answer to that question (about whether or not Kat and H will go all the way LOL). Teehee indeed. πŸ˜†

      Yeah, Aubrey doesn’t care for the idea, but didn’t have much choice atm. That Dempire is one of the good ones, obviously.

      Thanks!! πŸ˜€
