”Fuck! ”

Marcus Vega, the eldest of the Vegas brothers cursed under his breath as he stood with a deep frown cresting his rather handsome face as he stared at the damage done to the young calf that lay mutilated on the ground.

It went missing from the farm the previous night and he had set out during the early hours of that morning only to find it in that horrible state.

His anger was evident as he bend over the dead animal at his feet. Its limp was ripped apart and fed on. He could see marks on its flesh as he continued to inspect the damage that has been caused to its young body.

Marcus knew it was no mere incident as tales of Vampires returning to town was resurfacing again pretty quickly.

What seems to bother him more was the fact that, they could dare make his livestock a target for their blood tasty fangs. Marcus needed to warn his brothers. They needs to know, its no longer safe out there or anywhere for that matter as long as those blood suckers were out there. It was best to stay in and keep safe.

He searched for dry leaves and covered the horrid sight before stepping away. A deep sigh escaping his mouth as he did so.

It was already mid morning when Marcus returned back to the farm again in his horse. He sighed in deeply when he noticed a familiar pick up van waiting by the front lawn of their house.

Nobody visited Marcus and his brothers aside from, Edwin Roland. He was their family friend and also the only one who knew about their secret and if he was there then it must be because he has some news about the recent killing in town and has probably come to warn them about it.

Edwin Roland is a human but a very reliable one too. Aside from being their friends, he is also part of the people keeping the peace in the town and so far, he and his brothers have been living as normal as normal can be.

Climbing down from his horse back, Marcus began to stride towards him.

”Good morning, Eddy. What brings you to our side of the world, let me guess, its too cold up north? ” Marcus had asked with a chuckle.

The older man only tipped his earthy colored cow skin rancher cap at Marcus with a smile of his own before replying.

”You bet it is Marcus and I have come to see what we can do to salvage the situation. Let talk inside ”

Marcus responded with a nod and gestured for him to follow him inside so they could talk further. From the tone of his voice, Marcus knew there was trouble and he was indeed, in need of their help.

His instinct has never been wrong especially when it comes to the people he cares about.

The two men walked into the living room and up the stairs leading to the patio without saying a single word to each other.

Edwin Roland walked in and leaned against the dull wooden railing, his brown hazel eyes casting a long gaze towards the vast piece of land with cattles grazing at a distance. From the look in his face, Marcus knew it was exactly as he had feared even without being told.

Edwin was afraid of something and with how much his brows were kneaded then it must be something bad.

Humbery Town has a history of fighting off living death many centuries ago and even though their existence is now hidden to the outside world, only a few are aware they still walk among them and Edwin was one of those few people.

Only the living death can make Edwin this worried and helpless. Marcus was almost certain about it.

”Where are the rest? ” Edwin had asked, shortly after waiting for a while.

”On their way up, I already called them ” Marcus said and Edwin didn bother to ask him how. He already knew the three brothers can talk to themselves through their mind links without actually saying a word, part of the reason why he felt coming to them was actually a good idea even though their existence is just as disturbing as their other counterpart, but then again, they were still the lesser evil and more reliable.

They waited another moment before they were joined by Marcus two other brothers, Jackson and Lucien who showed up alert as though they were already in the knowing.

Jackson was next to Marcus and Lucien was the last and the most lay back of the three brothers.

”Eddy ” Lucien nodded at their friend before walking further to settled down beside his bother at the railing while Jackson did same as well.

”Whats the big news Ed, we heard you have something important to share with us ” Jack had asked shortly.

”Is it Money? Because I could use some cash right now ” Lucien joined in with a chuckle and Marcus growled under his breath putting an end to the laughter.

Lucien grumbled under his breath at his eldest brother reaction but said nothing further and Jackson simply scoffed under his breath.

The older man among the three brothers stood straighter and sighed in deeply before looking all three in the face.

”I need your assistance boys. ” He told them simply.

”Whatever you want, Eddy. Tell us what happened and if we can help you then why not? ” Marcus said firmly and Edwin nodded before continuing.

”One of the council member daughter has gone missing. She went out and never returned ”

”Then go report to the right authority. We are not the police ” Jackson expressed and Lucien agreed with a nod before adding.

”The council members have connection and can get the whole of this area swimming with cops within a blink of an eye so why wait ”

” Come on boys. This is bigger than the police. She practically disappeared without a trace and you and I know thats impossible ”

Marcus gave a shrug, ”If truly she disappeared without a trace then you and I knows she is already gone for good, Eddy and there is nothing we can do to help ”

”Thats if we wanted to help of course ” Jackson quickly added just for emphasis.

”Look, I know you boys don see eyes to eye with the council but this girl is worth saving ”

Lucien scoffed. ”Whats so special about her. I mean, so many people have gotten missing before and no one moved mountain for them. Why her? ”

Edwin lip parted slightly but hesitation took the best of him. Marcus saw the look in his eyes and knew he was either lying or not telling the whole truth.

”I can see this girl mean something to you so the sooner you tell us the whole truth, the better for her ” Marcus said and watched his shoulders tensed even more.

All three brothers watched as Edwin Roland shifted his weight from one foot to the next before looking up at Marcus.

”She is special because she is my daughter ”
