G1 - Chapter 9
The next day, in the morning, Onyx joined Grenat and Cobalt to announce them what happened the day before.
Abyss stayed at home to finish the preparations of the departure. He accepted because he knew that hime and Cobalt were the only vampberrys able to move the day thankfully to Grenat’s potion.
Neverthless, in his head, a little voice he quickly silented told him that he would have had to bring her with him at his friends house so that it’s more safe…
The blue vampberry and the witch received his story with concern.
-You did well by refusing his offer. Assured Cobalt.
-However, you can be sure that now, he will take revenge. He hate that we resist him. Added the red berry. He’s a vicious who will attack first what’s dear to you before going at you.
-That’s why we’ll go tomorrow, at dawn. I’m at advantage, thanks to your potion, Grenat. Maybe we will go abroad. Made the black berry, refusing to be daunted by his friends worrying comments.
-Well. But don’t say that we didn’t warn you if misfortune arrive at you. Sighed the witch.
-Good. You going to make a long trip, and you’ll need strenght. Let’s go hunt. Proposed Cobalt.
-Okay, let’s go.
The hunt lasted all day, the prey being rarer in fall. And when they returned, it was getting dark…
Abyss had just finished the preparations of the trip when she heard noise coming from the living room.
She went to the room and saw a green berry, a yellow berry and a purple berry. Their faces were marked by visible veins around their eyes that shone with an eerie glow.
She recognized that brightness that was the same as her brother, but also detected something bad in their look that wasn’t in Onyx’s.
The young girl understood immediately that they were vampberrys, especially those which her brother told her about.
Thinking at top speed, she said to herself that she could run away by the kitchen’s door which gave on the garden.
And that’s what she tried to do, but the green berry moved so fast that she didn’t have to put her plan into action.
-Hey well, you wanted to sneak away from us girl ? He whispered, a smirk on his lips.
-What… Made Abyss, surprised and affraid.
-A vampberry can read in human’s minds, and a could see that you wanted to escape through the kitchen. Unfortunaly, it all and here for you. I won’t make the same mistake with your brother when I thought I had killed him !
The young berry uttered a shrill cry when Durian sank his fangs in her throat.
Onyx, who was near his home, heard the cry of his sister and rushed to the house.
-No ! Not that ! If I a arrive in time ! He thought, running at surnatural speed.
Alas, it was too late, the only thing he saw when he arrived, was the lifeless body of his sister lying on the living room’s floor.
The scream he uttered was such that he sounded in the whole village and everyone heard it, including Cobalt and Grenat who recognized his vice right away.
They rushed at his home, using their supernatural abilities to join him as soon as possible.
Passing the front door, they saw a sad : Onyx crying tears of blood, tilted over his sister’s corpse.
-I should have listened to my instinct when I felt that I had to bring her to Cobalt and Grenat this morning ! He moans.
-Onyx… Began Grenat, while approaching the young man.
The black berry collapsed in the arms of his friend who had knelt down near him.
Le berry noir s’effondra dans les bras de son amie qui s’était agenouillée près de lui.
-Grenat, you’re a powerful witch isn’t it ? I beg you, bring her back. Cried the vampberry.
-Oh, my poor friend, of course I could bring her back, solely, this monster of Durian, bit her, she will completely be submitted to him. And that until he’s killed or she die. Because he well never accept for free her from his influence. She answered, sadness in her voice.
She only had Onyx’s tears for all answer.
Cobat, motionless and arms crossed, said nothing, but he was touched by the sorrow of his young friend and was sad to see the lifeless body of the teenager.
After a moment when only the sadness and despair of the black vampberry were heard, he says :
-We have to bury her before the day rise. Or the humans will find us suspects…
-Yes, you’re right Cobalt. Oynyx ?
The young man stood up, the red tears still flowing on his cheeks.
-Ok, we’ll do that. As for Durian and his friends, I would kill them as soon as I can. He declared, the sorrow having given way to the anger.
-That’s good, it’s the spirit that you must have my friend. I know that make you suffer what you’ve just undergone and you’re going to have to make your mourning. But you do not have to let you down.
Grenat and me will always be here to help you. Asserted the blue vampberry.
-I think the same thing. Assured the red witch.
-Thank you my friends. Aswered the youg man, sketching a smile.
The trio gathered for a moment at Abyss’s grave one moment, and Cobalt and Grenat went away.
Onyx also made some steps to leave, but he was stopped in his track when he felt in his back a light breeze.
Turning around, he saw a white and transparent silhouette he would have recognized among one thousand.
He approached his sister.
-I came to say you farewell, my brother.
-Abyss, I’m so sorry to not have been here when you needed me the most. I’ve failed to the promise I’ve made to our parents who wanted me to watch over you… Answered the young vampberry, tears flowing again down his cheeks.
-It doesn’t matter, it’s not your fault, Onyx. The responsible of what happened to me is that green vampberry. Not you. Replied the girl, the resentment she felt toward Durian showing through her voice.
-I swear to you, little sister, it will take however long it takes, but I’ll avenge you ! Promised her brother.
-Okay. I’ll remind you your promise if needed. Answered the teen, smiling.
-Well, good bye, brother.
-Farewell, little sister.
They hugged each other for a moment, and the ghost vanished as silently as he had appeared.
Onyx stood still an instant, the tracks of his bloody tears still on his cheeks. Then he joined his friends who waited him at the cimetery’s entry.
He told them what just happened and they comforted him.
And they left.
