Chapter 4 – Chisoutsa: The Vampire Convoitise

The darkness and the coldness bleed around the Ghost Tower where shadows were creping.  The moon gave a shine towards the ancient tower and the howls of animals were heard from miles away. Lone figures were riding towards it. There were figures of great power and figures of new. The missing ring was sitting pretty on the ground outside of the tower as it looked like it was there for years. A hand moved over it and picked it up. It was a male figure and he studied the ring. Then another shadow appeared behind him.

“What do you have in your hands,” said a female voice. 

“It’s you again. You have been following me since I left The City of Demons,” said the male.

“Your name is Jiko right? My name is Sarge and I am here to find out about the other two figures that are connected to me,” she said.

Jiko put the ring in his pocket and looked at her in confusion, “Connected in what way?” he asked.

“I’m half human and half vampire. I was created by the same demon that you and your friend were made from.”

“From Censilo? You were another failed fighter?” Jiko asked.

“Yes I was. It was until your rebel period was when I left as well. I was thrown out with the rest. Unlike your famous friend, I use my power for evil,” Sarge replied.

“What do you want from me then,” Jiko said concerned.

“Tell her I want a challenge. I want to see who is the strongest. Vampire vs. demon is something I have always wanted to test. “ 

Sarge turned to see two figures in the distance and looked back quickly, “Sorry but it’s time to go again. I don’t want to be seen. I hope you understand.” 

She disappeared in her black suited amour and left the area. Jiko picked up the ring and thought about who owned it. He sat down tired from his long journeys. He wanted to go back home but he would had to wait until morning to start his trip.

Over to the two figures in the distance, the Black Vixen had stopped behind Allegheri’s horse and the vampire stepped down and saw Professor Walken appeared from inside. 

“You followed me all this way out here. There’s something you want to know from me. I can tell,” the old vampire spoke. 

“Yes there is. I have come to ask about someone in the Second Life World,” the Professor started.

“Who is it that you seek.”

“My wife Emily had a miscarriage and I wanted to know if we had a child there. I want to find my other lost child,” Professor Walken.

“I’m sorry Professor Walken but I do not seek children nor do I tell the activities there. You know the laws and the rules of the way. You must understand,” Allegheri said. 

“Then what can I do? To wait the rest of the life wondering what where my other child is? We tried to create a family of our own and we want the final piece of the puzzle.”

“I suggest that you look after your only daughter and focus on the task at hand.  You are a master of the lands and you have to think with your head. I’m sure you have told your students that many times. The ring needs to be found,” Allegheri explained to the Professor.

Professor Walken bit his lip and walked over to the Black Vixen, “You can lead the way,” he replied.

Allegheri climbed back on his horse and the coldness was growing. The Professor closed the car door and threw his cane to the back seats, “Bloody Allegheri, he never gives away a tale to tell. It’s like dealing with Shentile in my young days.” He said.

Together the Professor and the Vampire travelled over to the Ghost Tower where Jiko was resting. He was lying down as Sarge crept towards him and slid her hand into his pocket. Her soft hand pulled out the ring and her dark red eyes lit up towards the Ghost Tower. 

“Watch me play with the ghosts tonight. This will give Chisoutsa a challenge. Three evils to content with,” she grinned.

She disappeared into the Tower as the Black Vixen drove into the area. Jiko quickly woke up to the sound and saw the car driving towards him. 

“I must be dreaming,” he cried in surprise as the Professor stepped out of the car. Allegheri was behind and walked up to Jiko with Jonathan Walken.

“Professor what are you doing here?” he asked.

“I’m getting stuck into Chisoutsa’s mess of course. In short she came with Alan Richards to find a family friend but it’s now a mission to kill a vampire lord for money. Don’t ask me why she decided to do it. I’m guessing more for the challenge then the money. This is Irasil Allegheri, the other vampire. He is the figure who is willing to pay Chisoutsa to do his dirty work,” Professor Walken explained to a confused Jiko.

“Young warrior, I see goodness in you. You have a kind and hearted spirit within you. We are looking for a ring that has been lost in the past couple hours. Have you seen something like that,” Allegheri asked.

“Yes I have something like that right here,” Jiko felt inside his pocket and look back at the pair worried.

“I think she took it from me!” he cried.

“Who took it from you,” asked Allegheri.

“Sarge, this women who I met, she said to me that she was like me and Chisoutsa. She was created from the Hyper Camp,” Jiko replied.

“This is not what we need Allegheri, yet another problem to deal with. We are already short in numbers,” Professor Walken said.

“I agree. I have heard of her name in the villages. She has caused some trouble but she hasn’t built to a large extend of a problem until now. She’s playing with fire and we need to stop this.”

“We must go into the Ghost Tower and stop her now. Before it’s too late,” said the Professor. 

Jiko sighted and looked towards the Ghost Tower, “I thought this was going to be my holiday.”

“Because Chisoutsa is dealing with the Lust Vampire I believe it is our duty to take care of this issue until it’s over.  Hew, Mr. Umzeu, and Frithdar will be able to help Chisoutsa,” said Allegheri.

“So you’re actually going to come out of retirement to battle him?” Professor Walken said.

“Aren’t you retired from fighting too Professor?” Jiko asked him.

“Well Professor, we both know evil never sleeps and our services will always be used until we die. 

“Lead the way then,” frowned the Professor. 

It was rare for Jonathan to be shown up from having experience and knowledge on life and having to deal with an older master in the lands. The three of them walked into the Ghost Tower together and the old Vampire watched Sarge in the distance. 

“There she is with the ring. We have to be quick about this. There is an eerie feeling about this place,” Allegheri warned. 

“Two strangers and Jiko, looking better then ever,” smiled Sarge towards Jiko. 

“Drop the ring from your finger now and we will not harm you. Do you understand,” cried out Allegheri.

“No! I will do this the way I like it. I have worked my way towards a goal to create some pain in the Death Lands and this is my chance!” Sarge snapped back. 

Professor Walken viewed the fog that around surrounding into the tower where there was a gold statue behind Sarge. He heard voices and the eyes of the statue cast a shadow over Sarge. He nudged Allegheri and pointed at the statue.

“The eyes are moving,” he whispered.

“There’s only one thing to do now. Escape!” Allegheri shouted as he grabbed both the Professor and Jiko and threw them out of the Ghost Tower. 

The statue roared as Sarge turned around and was blown away onto the ground. The ring was left on the ground and the fog and wind carried it up towards the statue. Jiko credit out from out side the Tower, “Who is the ghost that’s coming out?”

“Tekkonro is a ghost lord of the First Life World. He was imprisoned by me and the Lust Vampire. He has caused a large amount of deaths, thus you see many ghosts walk around these lands,” Allegheri cried back.

The ring connected to the statue and the roof of the Ghost Tower scattered into the air. Professor Walken turned to Jiko, “Go to the far lair castle to the east you see over there. Chisoutsa is currently trapped by the Lust Vampire that Allegheri speaks of. Go now and save her. I think Allegheri and I will have to deal with this mess ourselves. It requires experience here,” he explained to him.

“I’ll go now but be safe professor,” Jiko said.

“I will try to,” he answered.

Jiko jumped dodged the fire balls that start raining around the Ghost Tower and the lands. Professor Walken held on to his cane tightly as Allegheri backed towards him.

“For a cripple you move quite well, “Allegheri noted.

“Thanks, painkillers is the secret,” Walken answered.  

The fireballs had spread over to the Convoitise Castle where the vampire armies were flying around trying to save the castle from attack.  Convoitise stood in the middle of his castle and watched the fireballs smashing into his rooftop and he knew that Tekkonro had escaped. He dusted off his long black robe and walked over to edge of his castle.

“Who is their right mind would release a fool like Tekkonro. I don’t have time to deal with him. I want this land for myself and no one will stop me.”

Chisoutsa, Hew and Frithdar were still imprisoned inside the cage they were forced into. Hew ran his hands along the bars and looked back at Chisoutsa.

“See I told you I can’t go through these bars. Vampires have made sure that us ghosts are prevented to go to places they don’t want us to see,” Hew explained.

“Either we die within these bars or the fireballs will kill us, “Chisoutsa complained.

Frithdar sighted a fireball coming their way and quickly rose from his seat, “Stay down and keep your eyes close!’ he cried as he waved his hand around the three of them and a shield appeared. The fireball smashed the bars opened and the shield protected everyone from harm. Frithdar helped Chisoutsa up and she nodded towards him.

“Wizards are handy people to have,” she said.

“Handy and lucky I would say,” smiled Frithdar. 

Together, Chisoutsa, Hew and Frithdar dart past the Lust Vampire and escape the castle. Mr. Umezu followed suit and watched the fireballs and the ghost lord moving as a large body over the land.

‘Look’s like your daddy is in trouble of his own. What has he done out there with the vampire?” Mr. Umezu said.

“We have to help them first. This is not what I thought to be,” Chisoutsa murmured to herself.

Hew, Alan and Mr. Umezu looked at each other as the fireballs rained across the Death Lands. Now there was more than one evil to defeat…

The large shadow of Tekkonro stalked over the Death Lands. Chisoutsa and her growing group of allies run down the castle hill as she heard the voice of Jiko crying out. Jiko was making his way up the dusty slopes of the hill. She turned towards his voice and was surprised.

“Jiko, how did you get here?” 

“I was traveling here. Besides the Professor and the vampire guy I met are going after this Tekkonro guy. I’m still confused about it but it looks like you never needed saving,” Jiko answered.

“I’m the one who does the saving here,” Chisoutsa replied.

Mr. Umezu pointed up at the sky and nudged Chisoutsa, “There goes your Black Vixen. How are they going to catch a massive ghost like that? I thought I seen everything.”

“I have no clue. This wasn’t included in my training,” Chisoutsa said.

Alan stepped forward and popped out a device from his long pockets.  He held it up in front of the group, “I’m hoping this will work,” he said.

“And that is,” Chisoutsa replied.

“It’s like a video phone expect it boots straight to the Black Vixen. I like to see what they are doing to stop Tekkonro,” Alan answered.

Alan booted the Video Vixen and the face of Professor Walken appeared.

“Is that you Alan? I didn’t know there was a screen for the car,” he cried out. 

‘There are always secrets about that vehicle Professor Walken. How are you dealing with Tekkonro?” Alan asked.

“Allegheri and I have worked out a plan that there is circle type looking cage that was used for the catching of Tekkonro the first time. We have to get that cage and catch him in it,” Professor Walken said.

“Come over and collect Chisoutsa too, “added Allegheri, “Tekkonro is heading towards the village to attack it.”

“Come over here and get her. I’ll tell you how to get that cage with the Black Vixen,” Alan said.

Alan turned off the Video Vixen and the Black Vixen turned back and returned back towards the Convoitise Castle. The Vampire Lust appeared near the group and rubbed his chin in thought about Tekkonro. Frithdar saw the vampire and backed away from the group and headed towards him. The Black Vixen hovered in the air and tilted towards Chisoutsa and Alan.

“Now flip the yellow switch under the steering wheel,” Alan cried out. 

Allegheri flipped the switch for the Professor and two large chains rolled out from the back of the vehicle. Chisoutsa grabbed held of one of the chains.

“You can use this to connect to the Tekkonro cage. You have to swing the vehicle around to move the cage around to get him. Think of it as a game of shot put. By the information I have looked up right here you need to hit him a few times to trap him inside it,” Alan cried out. 

Alan waved off Chisoutsa as she held on as the Black Vixen took off with the long chains hanging down from the vehicle. He turned around at looked at Jiko, “Where’s Frithdar and Hew?”

Frithdar came to Convoitise and looked him in the eye, “How could you be so careless with the ring. If you desire so much to take the land then you will help us,” Frithdar demanded.

“That wouldn’t be so smart. Tekkonro can take care of Chisoutsa and Allegheri himself. Why do all the hard work if there is someone so willing to do it for you,” smiled Convoitise.  

“And what will happen when he comes for you?” 

“If I can defeat him once I can do it again Frithdar. You have little faith in me. Go and play with your friends I have some female vampires to play with,” Convoitise said. He walked away disappearing into his castle. Frithdar worried about Chisoutsa battle with the ghost lord as there wasn’t much she could against a beast who loved terror.

The Black Vixen entered the village as the face of Tekkonro appeared. He was a clearly white faced beast with ripped clothes and large hands. He flew around the village smashing down the side of buildings. Chisoutsa jumped off the chain and went through Tekkonro and rolled onto the ground. He flew toward her and smacked her into side of a building and turned around. 

“Errrr, shit. That hurts,” she said staggering around the village. 

The Black Vixen lowered the chains more as it scooped up the cage and turned towards Tekkonro. The ghost lord disappeared as Professor Walken slammed on the power and charged towards him. He reappeared and bashed into the Black Vixen sending it spinning around the village sky. The villagers burst out the building and ran around the ground. Chisoutsa started to push her way through the crowd where the Black Vixen stood still in the air.

“This isn’t working at the moment. He’s going to disappear when we attack him. We have to swing the cage around and hope it hits him,” Allegheri told the Professor.

“We can try that for now. The chances are good he will target the crowds. If we can use them as bait then we can hit him,” the Professor noted.

The Black Vixen started to swing around and spin. It moved towards Tekkonro and bashed him for the first time. Electricity sparked all over him and shook his head and disappeared again. Chisoutsa was pushed by the large crowds and she hid into the bar. A ghostly figure appeared behind her and tapped her on the shoulder. She jumped back and Hew reappeared in front of her.

“How the hell did you get here?” she asked him.

“I jumped on the other chain. I’m here to help you,” Hew said.

“You are going to help me against that outside? I like to see that?”Chisoutsa replied with a smirk.

“I believe with my memory and my memory tends to fail me a lot in my life that if you can’t beat them join them,” Hew said.

“By starting to kill the villagers,” Chisoutsa asked smartly.

“No, but my personal saying is if you can’t beat them, become them,” Hew smiled.

“What idea do you have?” asked Chisoutsa becoming interested.

“You’ll love it,” Hew replied.

The raging battle of Tekkonro continued outside away from the Convoitise Castle.  The Lust Vampire was resting in his wall fall of blood pounding the challenges of Chisoutsa and her allies. His assistant Kayi appeared before him with some news.

“We found a girl by the name of Sarge. She is the one who released the ghost lord Tekkonro. What should we do with her?” he asked him.

“Leave her in the bedroom. I will attend and see her,” he answered.

“It’s still dangerous outside my vampire lord. What will happen to the village?” Kayi asked.

“I think Chisoutsa and the old vampire will handle the problem. They don’t need me, “Convoitise said disappearing from the room.

The Vampire headed through the halls and came to the bedroom and slowly opened the door. Sarge was waiting at the window watching the Soul Mountains. She was injured and her clothes were ripped and bloody. He eyed her from head to toe and closed the door.

“You used my ring to release Tekkonro. Why did you do that?” he asked.

Sarge turned around and smiled at the vampire, “To get at Chisoutsa, to cause trouble. I love doing it.”

“I feel that you have some problem with Chisoutsa. You know her well?” he asked her.

“We were made from the same man and she think she’s the strongest of the three of us. I’m the strongest, better then Jiko and Chisoutsa together,” Sarge answered.

“Your desire is strong; I feel it all around you. You have some vampire in you. I’m not sure how you got that. Whoever your master was, he wouldn’t be as strong as me,” Convoitise said.

A strong and unbearable desire was felt inside the room as Sarge eyes turned green with desire. The Lust Vampire approached behind her. He moved his hand over her ripped top and pulled it down to the ground exposing her firm large breasts.

“You do you wonder,” he started then smiled to himself, “Do you desire to know why I am called Convoitise, the tongue of love it means lust?” 

Sarge moved her hand down to her ripped jeans shred them down to the ground. Her eyes growing a uncontrollable green. She as in a emotion that she couldn’t get out of.

“Yes I want to know why,” she smiled.

“I believe that lust should be a two way street. Men give so much to their women but yet we take nothing for their own. I turn the tables, I take what I desire the most but I give what women desire the most too,” he purred kissing down her neck and groping her breast.

Sarge put her hands on the window as Convoitise undone his robe and shot himself into her. She gave out a loud cry and moaned. The Lust Vampire’s veins widen in his arms and legs.

“With my gift you shall be well balanced to combat Chisoutsa with your power,” he whispered in her ear. 

He continued to feel inside her with his penis as it grew larger and larger. She cried and moaned. He fed inside her a raw power and he grew as large as a muscled arm inside her. He withdrew from her and she feel to the ground and went to sleep from the knock from her head. He put on his robe and moved outside of the bedroom door and closed it. Kayi found him and suspected what was happening.

“Did you have your normal meal my vampire lord?” he asked.

“No, she has a will and desire to kill. She will be useful now I have personally worked through with her. Or should I say through her,” Convoitise grinned closing his eyes and walking away from Kayi.

Chisoutsa and Hew were left in the bar as the crowds of villagers pushed each together as they ran from Tekkonro’s wrath. 

“So what is your plan?” she asked him.

Hew disappeared and went straight inside her body. She shook all around herself and her eyes shook white. Then he spoke from inside her, “You’re now officially a part time ghost. You can disappear and move around like a human can.”

“I don’t like the idea of this Hew. How is this going to defeat Tekkonro?” she asked.

“When you’re a ghost you can fight back at him. Ghost on ghost battles Chisoutsa, you can swing a punch at him and cause a blow this time around,” Hew explained.

“Now I like this idea. Let’s this pain in the ass bastard out of the way,” she cried as she marched herself out of the bar.

She stood still in the middle of the crowd movement and Tekkonro’s eye fixed on her, “Remember Chisoutsa each hit will weaken him, making his catching easier.”

The ghost lord charged into her and she landed a giant punch and he flew into the building smashing it to pieces. The Black Vixen spans around with the flying capture cage and smashed the ghost lord again and the cage was glowing white. Tekkonro jumped on Chisoutsa and the two wrestled on the ground. The Black Vixen turned around spinning with a head ached Professor Walken and Allegheri and smashed into the two of them. Tekkonro’s power was weakening and the two were caught inside the cage. Chisoutsa fought hard with him landing punches. She quickly disappeared when the Black Vixen flew uncontrolled into a building. She sailed through the building as a ghost and reappeared as she hit the ground with a body slam. The Black Vixen started to lose control, the ghost lord was finally trapped inside the cage and he was growling in anger. Professor Walken struggled like hell with the steering wheel. Suddenly as the vehicle was spinning inc circles at break speed the chains broken into the pieces and the cage was blasted over like a comet straight outside the Death Lands and far away. Hew pulled himself away from Chisoutsa’s body and looked at the distance star. 

“And Tekkonro is gone. That’s unbelievable. I can’t believe that…,” he stopped short as the Black Vixen was falling straight for Chisoutsa was lying on the ground. He connected inside her and quickly disappeared.  The Black Vixen landed into the ground hard. Professor Walken was knocked out while the vampire calmed awake and well. Fire burst from the vehicle and Hew reappeared inside the Black Vixen. He used Chisoutsa’s body and helped drag the two bodies out of the Vixen. The villagers started running and noticed that their leader Allegheri was in need. They started get buckets of water and pouring it over the Black Vixen. With professor Walken and Allegheri resting by the rocks next to the bar, Hew disconnected from Chisoutsa’s body and she dropped to the ground.

“Can someone help her. I can’t help her. I’m only a ghost,” Hew sighted.

The villagers helped the three out and Hew stood watching the group. Jiko and the other group arrived in the village and help with the villagers. Chisoutsa woke up with the Professor and looked at Hew. 

“Thanks for helping us Hew,” said Professor Walken, “I have no idea where that cage ended up.

“That’s alright. I was just trying to help and I….” Hew lost his breathe and fell to the ground

Chisoutsa quickly climbed to her feet and went to him. She couldn’t touch him and cried at the Professor and Allegheri, “What’s happened?” she shouted worried.

“I don’t know. But ghosts don’t do that,” the old vampire answered.

She reached out to Hew but her hands couldn’t do a thing. She panicked and remembered of someone else she lost in the past. Was it happening again?
