Samiyah says (in common), 'and she took offense that I did not do so'.

The scroll in Nicholai's hands crumbles to dust.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'sacred?'.

Samiyah nods.
Samiyah says (in common), 'the vampires of the keep. She said your kind are sacred to you. So if I have offended by letting them turn to dust and not giving them rites ...'.

Samyah bows deeply in the desert style.

Samiyah says (in common), 'I apologize'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'I don't know what is sacred to me anymore, but sacrificing them is a good idea, at least to cover your tracks'.

Samiyah shifts her gaze away, embarrassed. "I was in great need and did not take the time to do so."

Samiyah says (in common), 'you should be able to mark here now. I removed mine'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'why did you do that?'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'because this is your place'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'it does not belong to me'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'no, but ...'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'possessions make one a prisoner'.

Before you stands a sorcerer clad in black. His age indiscernible at a glance, his Elven
frame appears strong and youthful but a cold, expressionless face and piercing blue eyes
hint at a wealth of wisdom lost in an eternity of darkness and pain. His pale complexion
contrasts the few Moorish teak strands of hair that stray from under his dark hood and
fangs are barely noticeable behind closed lips, rarely breaking to smile. About him flows a
cape of pure darkness, once a symbol of the Ordinus Nosferatu, a mark of the kindred,
now a relic of an ancient time and a warning to this realm that he is perhaps the eldest,
the last remaining of the original kindred to walk among them, and should be feared and
respected as such. Close to his heart and hidden from view he keeps a token of love given
to him by a little girl as a reminder of what is most important in this life, and that perhaps
there is hope in the darkness.
Nicholai leads a charmed life.
Nicholai is in perfect health.

Nicholai is using:
<used as light> (Red Aura) (Glowing) a bright flame of loyalty

<worn with pride> (Weak magic) (Glowing) the Crest of the Dragon Riders

Samiyah says (in common), '..does the daisy imprison you?'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'I imprison myself with concern about my possessions'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'it would be very disconcerting and distracting if you cast away all possessions and went about as bare as a jaybird.'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'I do not intend to, but I am aware of them. I cannot take this tree with me, so I do not claim possession of it'.

Samiyah nods, looking uncomfortable, and perches on a different branch than her usual.

Samiyah says (in common), 'so I did not give offense by the Kindred shells?'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'I took no offense personally'.

Samiyah nods.
Samyah bows deeply in the desert style.

Samiyah says (in common), 'thank you. It was weighing on me'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'I must say one other thing. Your progeny is taking a great interest in me again'.

Nicholai sits down and thinks deeply.

Samiyah says (in common), 'and we may yet come to violence if he keeps following me and singing and trying to ...'.

Samiyah coughs.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'perhaps you should be less interesting'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'I may have to hurt him . I apologize for that to you. But not to him. I do not think I am interesting. I am just me. A foolish goat as he says.'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'obviously an interestingly foolish goat, at least to him'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'but I will have no part in his arch lich plans and if he tries to bite me as he did Sayyida last night, I will kick his teeth out'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'do as you must. I am not his keeper'.

This area is again susceptible to magic.

Nicholai makes a complicated-looking gesture.
Nicholai draws a funny looking rune in the air.

Samiyah says (in common), 'You are his Sire.'.

Nicholai says (in elven), 'he is quite capable of making his own decisions, and accepting the consequences. '.

Nicholai gives you a spell score.

Samyah bows deeply in the desert style.

Samiyah says (in common), 'thank you'.

Nicholai nods.

The Heart of the Tree
[Exits: down]
Thick branches heavy with foliage encircle a hollow area in the heart of
the tree. The foliage is too thick to see the outside world, but is lit
by the soft glow that emanates from the branches. A warm white light
bathes the small area here. Leafy branches jutting into the enclosed

      1. [Somewhere, Venom grins evilly, his elongated fangs glistening.]


Samiyah shivers, aware of Venom's fangs from across the world .

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'You should really dress more warmly....'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*lying* I am not cold and I am not afraid of you.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'I understand...'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'and I am wearing heavy cloth and a shawl'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Yet you shiver like a nervous virgin...'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*reaching for dignity* it is disconcerting to see things of a certain nature unexpectedly. Anyone would say so. Virgin or not.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Yes, it IS disconcerting to see you wandering around letting vampires bite you like a lost baby.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'I am not lost. I know where I am and why I am there and why I am doing what I chose to do.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'You are so lost that you have convinced yourself that you can control it, REMARKABLE!'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'and letting lesser Kindred bite me until Wind returns and he can, so it does not pain me so badly makes sense'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), '*Puffy and sarcastically* Oh yesss! Wandering around letting vampires bite you because of your addiction makes PERFECT sense....'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*shrugs a little, her tone between sarcasm and curiosity* well, what else can I do, Doctor Venom?'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Learn self-control...'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'I have withstood it for ten months with plenty of control .. and it is my choice when I walk among them'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'You only choose to walk with them because you know you cannot do without.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'I was fine last night until you and the Sayyida showed up'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'You are a love sick puppy, lost in the depths of addiction.'.
Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'You are in the denial stage.'.
Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Justifying your actions to yourself, whilst everyone else shakes their heads in silence.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'then maybe everyone should just leave me to it!'.
Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'what I do is none of your concern'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'tsk tsk, no need to get all worked up over the little old truth....'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'I would rather Lestat or Nicholai drain me dry before I am used by you for your nefarious plans.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Well that's the spirit!'.
Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'I like them unwilling...'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'and barely out of a child's dresses, as I recall. find your prey elsewhere'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'hahah, as if I would pay any heed to you.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'then I shall just have to ask Wind to ensure I am no longer innocent and pure'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), '*sing melodically* It must have been love, but it's oooover nooow...'.
Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Wind is gone....'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'He is just away. Not gone. Ask the Sayyida. And... stop singing.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'He isn't gone forever, no. Just gone from you. He left you, just like your father left you...'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*softly but firmly* That isn't true. And as for Seraph, I am better for his lessons but better without him'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Search within your feelings Samiyah... Everyone from your past is gone. You long now every day for something you can never get enough of.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'Nicholai isn't. Cresom isn't. Bels isn't. Alfonse isn't'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'But they can't help you... and Bels will turn you into a toad...'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'maybe. But you don't need a toad 's blood, now do you?'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'No. But this isn't about me, is it?'.

Samiyah murmurs, ‘and here I thought EVERYTHING was about you, Venom…’

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'I could ask Nicholai. But I won't.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'HAHAH!'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'I could ask Sayyida. She offered. I. won't.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'If you think you long for a vampire's kiss now, wait till you see the hot mess you'll be in if Nicholai bites you.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*coughs and turns away, though you are not present to see her face*'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'I think the most ironic part is that the one person you hate the most is the only one who can actually help you.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'who, you? I thought that would spoil everything?'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'What would spoil everything?'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'No. I won't ask you.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'I am not talking about my plans. I'm just saying that I'm the only one that knows how to relieve that aching throbbing flesh.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'Shut up, you filthy haraam pervert!'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'tsk tsk, I never said anything haraam...'.

Samiyah lays down and goes to sleep, but his voice wakes her anyway.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'In fact, the cure for what ails you is in fact quite normal. Think about it. Why would I want to do anything sexual to you, and ruin my own plans. I need you to be a pure virgin....’.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'and would render me useless to your plans'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Exactly. The thing to cure your longings is not haraam'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'you are disgusting and haraam. Every bit of you.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Exactly. Just the thing!'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*confused* ..what?'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Allow me to explain, dear child. You are drawn to the allure of the Kindred kiss, the charm, the beauty. You are drawn to this and you ache for it. But in me, there is nothing beautiful. Nothing alluring. I can show you the true nature of the Kindred curse. And once you see the deepest things that we hide inside, you will know fear. You will not long for the kiss, you will loath it.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*softly* I saw it when you turned Jamilla, Al'Shaitan'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'You have seen nothing... My powers grow not only stronger, but darker as well....'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'and I don't want my bond damaged by foulness'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'You must be drawn from thrice to affect the bond, even by the most ancient of Kindred. Besides, I said I know how to cure you, I didn't say I would do it for you.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'I will withstand until his return, somehow, because that is the most beautiful thing in existence.’

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'You are a fool...'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*merrily* so you always say.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Do you really think that those pathetic creatures in Sanguinna will hold you over forever? No Samiyah, they will not... You will grow to need more each time. That's how it works.... And I will enjoy watching you squirm.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '.. then I will squirm and wait and when Wind returns I will be whole again.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'When Wind returns I will impale him upon my claws. Because he is a traitor and a weakling. He is a disgrace to our kind.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'death cannot stop love . It can only delay it for a little while. And whether you think him a disgrace or not - he is my Bonded'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'I know more of death than you think, we have a deal....'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'you always make yourself out to be so grand. Is that compensating for something?'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'I think of myself as pathetic, you know nothing of how I view myself. Only when I achieve immortality will I be grand.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*blinks*'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'I just happen to be less pathetic than the rest of the mortal realm.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), 'well you take great pains to speak ill of everyone else, so..'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Like I said, they are also pathetic. Just a little moreso'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*quietly, honest pity in her voice* what a sad and lonely place you live in, in your head.'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'I would imagine it would be sad for you, I feel nothing but determination.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '..but you have no one. No one who cares about you. That is a sad thing'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Not really... I desire no one and thus I have lost nothing. I prefer my own company, the only way I can have a good conversation. My casual involvement with Lost keeps me sufficiently annoyed that mortals exists.'.

Samiyah tells Venom (in common), '*mildly* You sure talk to me a lot for someone who only gets a good conversation with themselves...'.

Venom tells Samiyah (in common), 'Talk is a tool. I use it to my advantage.'.

The Illusion of the Kindred – Log by Samiyah


The Office of the TFC Housing Authority
[Exits: west]
(White Aura) Wendell waits patiently while you decide where to live.

Samiyah rests.

Samiyah sits upon the floor, her back pressed against the cool stones of the wall, trying to reach for calm.

Venom arrives from the west.
Venom makes a complicated-looking gesture.
Venom draws a funny looking rune on Samiyah, scribing his name with one claw upon her chest.

Samiyah does not rise from her spot on the floor.
Samiyah does not so much as glance at you .

Venom licks the tips of his fangs.
Venom starts moaning.

Samiyah slowly clasps her left wrist with her right hand and closes her eyes.
Samiyah hums softly to herself to shut out the sounds in the room.

Venom moves across the floor, you feel his breath upon you like a threatening blast from the furnace of evil.

Samiyah says (in common), '(ok that was some picturesque language . props .)'.

Venom says (in common), 'Close your eyes when the monster is near...'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'you won't. You need me unsullied.'.
Samiyah says (in common), 'so go away'.

Venom says (in common), 'I need you a virgin, I didn't say it would matter if you were beaten to a pulp.'.

Samiyah opens her eyes and glares her rage and frustration and need at you.
Samiyah says (in common), '...I was not the one to flee last time, so don't make threats'.

Venom says (in common), 'I am growing each day... you already know what is coming... Soon my powers will peak.'.

Despite her brave words, a faint trembling can be seen in her hands and a sheen is visible on her brow .

Venom says (in common), 'You seem a bit thirsty.'.

Venom gets a delicate emerald crystal goblet from a saddlebag.
Venom gives you a delicate emerald crystal goblet.

Venom says (in common), 'Drink.'.

Samiyah gives a delicate emerald crystal goblet to Venom.
Samiyah says (in common), '.. how stupid do you think I am?'.

Venom puts a delicate emerald crystal goblet in a saddlebag.
Venom says (in common), 'Do you want an honest answer?'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'You are al'Shaitan. I trust nothing that comes from your hand'.

Samiyah murmurs, "Or mouth."
Her gaze drifts down to your lips for a moment, then jerks away.

Venom says (in common), 'Yet you seem to enjoy it so much when I place my wizard mark upon you.'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'it is vampire magic. Any vampire magic helps the ache. I prefer Nicholai's.'.

Samiyah clasps her wrist more tightly.

Venom picks his nails clean of the dried blood, grinning ear to ear.

Samiyah looks down at her wrist and breathes a name, as much a vow and a plea.

Venom says (in common), 'You should not tell me these things. I see what you do not say.'.

Samiyah shrugs.
Samiyah says (in common), 'you will keep marking me anyway, so it matters not'.

Venom says (in common), 'Only so I can keep track of you.'.

Samiyah says (in common), '...it still helps, no matter why you do it'.

Venom says (in common), 'Would you like to know the truth of the Kindred that nobody will tell you?'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'what?'.

Venom lowers his head for a moment.
Venom murmurs softly to himself and raises his head once more.

Samiyah listens intently.

Venom looks you in the eye and as he does, his beauty fades away, revealing the disgusting creature beneath.
Venom grins. His gums are black and his tongue forked.
Venom's eyes become wide and blackened as his face become as dry as old parchment.

Samiyah smiles shakily, and nods. "Thank you. That helps, too, to fight the glamour."

Venom speaks with an old voice, 'Our beauty is our greatest illuuuusion...'

Samiyah says (in common), 'You are being very kind to me today.'.

Venom snaps his fingers and his grace returns swiftly.
Venom says (in common), 'It gets worse as we age. The true form of Nicholai, or even Wind... is even uglier than mine.'.

Samiyah says (in common), 'I suppose it is your half mortal blood that lets you ... decay... that way'.

Venom says (in common), 'It takes blood, and effort to remain beautiful. If you ever had to witness your friend Nicholai, or your boyfriend Ghazkull, You would cringe. Kindred is not the beautiful thing you think it is... You are in love with the illusion.'.

Samiyah says quietly, "I have seen their bare and broke shells , with no illusion possible. They were still glorious."

Venom says (in common), 'Oh you enjoy the sight of a monster?'.

Samiyah shrugs.
Samiyah says (in common), 'I saw what I saw…but it is good to know that the outside reflects the inside'.

Venom says (in common), 'You know. In order for our food and playthings to enjoy our bite, it is necessary that we use a small charm. To be bitten without the romance of it, it is not such an enjoyable thing. Some beg for death during this. I personally prefer to make them suffer...'.

Samiyah says (in common), '.. that doesn't surprise me'.

Venom says (in common), 'One kiss from a vampire in his true form, and you would know only pain upon those scars.
I have enjoy watching this pain drive many young women to madness.'.

Samiyah tightens her grasp on her wrist, protectively.
Samiyah says (in common), 'no one is biting those scars. No one save Wind.'.

Venom grins evilly, his elongated fangs glistening.
Venom says (in common), 'Wind, and any vampire who happens to be roaming around Sanguinna.'.

Samiyah shakes her head emphatically. "I always protect it. It is his."

Venom says (in common), 'Just keep this in mind next time you are wandering around Sanguinna letting little creatures bite you....'.

Venom takes the form of a small vampire bat.
Venom utters the words, 'yrl'.
Venom now can fly.
Venom leaves west.

Samiyah shudders from the sheer thought of it.
Samiyah says (in common), 'oh gods'.
Samiyah says (in common), 'oh gods... no.'.

Samiyah looks ill.

Samiyah makes a complicated-looking gesture.
Samiyah fades out of existence.

Samiyah takes a moment to breathe, realizing that even had he been in bat form, his strength would have been apparent, and the transformation revealed.

Samiyah calms, and returns to her meditations.

Ok.

Samiyah tells Tyran (in common), 'pardon, I did not realize I was unseen'.
Samiyah tells Tyran (in common), 'I'm Samiyah'.

Someone tells Samiyah (in common), 'I am.'.

Samiyah tells Someone (in common), '*takes a deep breath, and speaks with some embarrassment but care* Then.. you may be the only one who can help me with a great pain and anguish. May I speak with you face to face?'.

Tyran arrives from the south.

Samiyah bows deeply in the desert style.

Tyran nods in your direction quietly, devoid of any emotion.

Samiyah kneels, doing all she can to look unthreatening.
Samiyah plucks at her sash a touch nervously.

Samiyah says (in common), 'I am blood-bonded , to another of the Sayyida's Chylder'.

Tyran breathes in the air fully, then nods again.
Tyran says (in common), 'Yes.'.

Samiyah turns over her wrist in a very formal way, proudly showing the marks there, though sorrow mars her face.

Samiyah says (in common), 'Ghazkull Mahsong, called Wind'.

Tyran leans forward, examining the marks with instant precision.

Samiyah says (in common), 'my Bonded was deeply harmed by one who the Sayyida names as enemy - one named leareth - and there are times that he.. seems to be bound up in the Lady Fate's webs, out of time and place'.

Samiyah rests her trembling wrist upon her knee.

Samiyah says (in common), 'I have spoken many times to the Sayyida, seeking her council'.


Samiyah says softly, "as Wind is unable to Feed... and yet I am bound to quench Thirst."

Samiyah glances up at you briefly, then back down at her wrist.

Tyran mimics her shifting eyes, his demeanor one of complete self-control.

Tyran says (in common), 'Samiyah..right?'.

You nod.
Samiyah says (in common), 'Yes'.

Tyran says (in common), 'I am not very "good" at interacting with others..so please, enlighten me bluntly..You said I might be able to help you?'.

Samiyah nods slowly.

Samiyah says (in common), 'My body is bound to the needs of a Kindred's Thirst. But I have not ... Wind has been unable to do so for nearly an outrealm year. I would ask - if you are willing -'.

Samiyah's voice falters, then she gathers her courage.

Samiyah reaches up and shifts aside her tumble of braids. "If you have Thirst.. May I quench it?"

Tyran shifts his head to one side, his silver locks catching natural light ever so fleetingly.

Tyran says (in common), 'Well.. Allow me to be as diplomatic in my answer as possible. My fleeting encounters have taught me that most that look like you enjoy that sort of talk.. By no fault of your own...if I were to do such a thing... It would not only violate my own personal code, but there is a great probability that I would not stop. Which, under those circumstances, could cause you great harm.'.

Samiyah nods silently, swallowing hard. "I would not wish you to do a thing against your conscience. I know of the risks. I have.. " she breaks off.

Samiyah rises and bows formally once more. "I understand. Thank you for your willingness to speak with me."

>l Ty Vacant. His dark pools of angst stare daggers through your conscience being. His expression hallow as if over-medicated by the strain of existence. As your eyes concentrate on him further, his silver locks wave over his pale features - driven by the chilling breeze that annoints his presence. Then unexpectedly his demeanor softens and he looks away towards the horizon, as if he beckons for something that will never came. Or has already.
