Allure Of The Night

[Mature Content] The body of a mermaid is a vault of treasures. Their tears formed the most splendid of pearls, their exquisite blood a euphoric drug for vampires, their luscious hair woven into the finest of silk, and their tender meat sought after by werewolves more than Heaven’s ambrosia. The creatures of night mingled within human society, fleeced in the wool of aristocracy, veiled in their portrayed innocence and nobility, their savagery continued to predate on the weak and powerless. Genevieve Barlow, Eve for short, was an exceptionally strange young lady. She had an alluring and beguiling nature, where for her twenty-four year old self had barely changed in appearance since her eighteenth birthday. She had fooled the administration and had gotten a degree so that she could have a better life. Most odd of all was that Eve had a secret she shared with no one. She enters the house of Moriarty, not just to earn but also to find answers on what happened to her mother nearly two decades ago. Unfortunately, things do not always proceed as one planned. Despite her cautious nature and desire to stay out of sight, a cold pair of eyes falls on her, that soon refuses to leave her out of sight.

Sharpened piece

The councilman's eyes fell on the person inside the cell, and he questioned Deacon, "Why are some of the prisoners put here when there are vacant cells up there?" 

Following the councilman's line of sight, Deacon's eyes fell on the person who was hurled in a fetal position, with bare legs visible but head hidden in the dark because of the lack of light in this part of the dungeon. The head guard turned to the councilman and explained, 

"The one's at the top are noisier than these ones. Also some here are not worth mentioning and are better forgotten with the long-term punishment before being put up there," Deacon wasn't interested in talking about these prisoners when he wanted to find the human. The woman didn't know what was coming at her for trying to escape, thought the head guard. 

"Have these prisoners shifted at the top. And look at the dust collected here along with cobwebs!" Mr. Cripps scolded before looking away from the cell.
