Ash woke up when she felt Crow nudging her shoulder. She hadn’t even realized that she fell asleep. When she looked out the window, she saw that it was nighttime. It was about mid-afternoon when they left, but she couldn’t tell what time it at that moment by the sky alone. It could’ve been six o’clock, it could’ve been twelve.
Leo was still resting on her lap, or so it looked, he could’ve been awake but didn’t say anything. Out of fear or just courtesy, Ash didn’t know.
“…what time is it?” Ash asked, voice still sounding tired. Why would he let her sleep for so long?
“Hm~ About one o’clock in the morning.” Crow sounded chipper as usual, like driving for so long had no effect on him. He had driven for ten hours, and she wondered if he was completely insane, but she already knew the answer to that. “I was wondering if you were hungry, or if he is.”
“I could go for something to e

It was like all those crime shows on TV. Ash was sitting at a long silver table, in a stark white room that was so clean it stank. The only difference is that she was sure there wouldn't be a good cop and a bad cop.
It was a quiet scenario, she stared into the eyes of that man who she had vaguely remembered from the previous times she had seen him. Buzz cut, gray eyes, and that same suit. She was surprised that she remembered him at all, he was so plain-looking. This was the man who was so interested in her blood. The man - Kenneth, she learned his name was - had put a manila folder on the table and she could clearly see the files inside. Some of the papers had her picture of them, some of them didn't. She was sure she saw a picture of Crow on one of them, too. Was it a taunt?
Kenneth just sat there, staring her in the eyes, observing her. She stared right back, showing her fury through her eyes, while his displayed fury of his own. Wh

Ash knew that she would die here. Crow would drain her of all her blood, and then he would leave her body her for animals to take care of. She pulled at Crow’s hair, at his pointed elf-like ears, anything she could get a hold off, trying to get him off of her.
No matter what she did, she just couldn’t get him off. She pushed him, but he wouldn’t let go. She could feel herself growing weaker (or maybe that was the adrenaline wearing off), her knees threatening to give out, but she knew that even if they did Crow wouldn’t let her fall.
She was muttering incoherently when Crow finally loosened his grip. She would have fallen, if he wasn’t there to catch her and sit her on the ground, leaning her against the wall and holding her steady.
“That wouldn’t have been pretty,” he said, laughing a little. He wiped some blood off his face with his free hand. That was her blood. The blood of a pooka. It was so rare, a deep purple color that c

The pooka - not in its horse form anymore, but now posing as a fox - stared at its unwanted companion. Crow stared right back, meeting yellow with scarlet. He had his face cupped with his hands, just staring back, with a curious look. The pooka knew a bit about his kind. Vampires. They weren’t like pooka in the sense that they were practically unknown. Everyone knew about vampires. He wasn’t a human, but he was still an outsider. It wasn’t sure if it would ever trust him.
Trust was a big deal with vampires. Crow trusted it - he didn’t even know its name -, and it knew that he wouldn’t have revealed his true form if there wasn’t a strong sense of trust present. Why? It didn’t know him, why did he trust it so much?
“A sly fox for a sly pooka,” he said after a few minutes, breaking the awkward tension that had formed in the forest. He offered a little smile, but it was not returned. “Heh, looks like I’m going
